Low sodium friends, please advise me!

So I decided to get serious about this low sodium thing, after having spent most of the last week feeling dizzy and swimmy-headed, to the point where crossing the road feels a bit risky in case my scanning for traffic leads to me stumbling into it.

* I think this is probably why I'm suited to blended vision laser treatment as well - my brain seems to cope reasonably well with getting two different messages and taking an average. Which is, I guess, why I can still do a headstand even though my balance is fucked up.

I missed Dr Wheel a lot this weekend. It's not that my life sucks without him here - far from it - but it's better when he's around and sometimes I really feel that. [/sop]

And in irony news: Go to google. Type in Crowded House When You Come. Click the first YouTube link. Depending on where you are, you'll either get a 'page not found' error or you'll be told "This video contains content from EMI, which has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

Why is this ironic? Because Crowded House is a Kiwi band - the band that penned the famous line and the sound of Te Awamutu had a truly sacred ring - and their content is blocked to New Zealand by their label because our copyright laws don't suit them. Apparently not all their content, but that one certainly is. Fuck you, EMI.
