The disease-ifying of normal just took one leap forward today with this question from Ask Metafilter:
I get very moody if I don’t eat in the morning. If I don’t eat until 3-4pm I get headaches, drowsiness and feel nauseous.. I think I’ve always had this. Since I usually eat enough it doesn’t really bother me. I’m 21, male, and a vegetarian. What do I have?
I love the answers:
You have a condition known as hunger.
The good news: it is easily treatable
The bad news: there is no permanant cure
This condition can be treated at a specialized clinic, the one you want is known as a restaurant. This condition can also be treated at home, but you will need specialized supplies from a grocery store. Most sufferers find that several treatments per day are necessary.
