Two things on my mind today: M.E.-related stuff and Aubergine Parmigiana.
M.E. politics is so big and so deep and so messy that it's difficult to even begin talking about it. M.E. is a neuroimmune disease - not a mental illness, not psychosomatic, not the same as generalised chronic fatigue. This is known, recognised, understood, despite the clear necessity for continuing research. There are those who find it very important to distort or suppress the truth. Meanwhile thousands continue to suffer without medical or social support - some in almost unimagineable conditions. Worth remembering the next time you read about M.E. Militants. Yes, they have sent journalists death threats. Not good. How is it that they have become so enraged? And why?
Ok, food. Family (including one vegetarian) coming for lunch on Sunday and I'd like to find a way of making the above, but without all the faff of frying each piece of aubergine because this is a long process and I can't stand for long periods (orthostatic intolerance, as any PWME fule kno). I am thinking of cheating and baking the aubergine first but am open to advice - and suspect there may be one or two looking in here who can give it.
Thanking you in advance (I'm lookin' atcha, Madonna!).
