I'm a hypochondriac interested in elections


I didn't vote this election. This time it had nothing to do with me simply forgetting to vote, but the fact that I've recently moved to Bexar county and haven't registered here yet. I've also been running between doctors appointments for both my mom and I. I've done more driving these past few days than I had probably done the entire month before. I went over the election results, and I don't really think it matters that I voted this time. The biggest thing in the local news about this election was Proposition 2:
"The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status ideantical or similar to marriage."
It passed. Doesn't suprise me. Sometimes I forget how conservative the rest of the state is being around central Texas. The little, blue liberal island (mostly Austin) in the huge, red conservative state. My mother told me in the car the other day, "Vote no on proposition2." I had no idea what she was talking about. She told me what it was about and I looked at her rather confused. "Why should I vote no? Isn't that what marriage is, the union between one man and one woman?" She told me that it was good that I wasn't voting. I shook my head and went on driving. Evidently my view is more popular in the state than my mother's.

Other than the election results, as I said before, I've been going between doctors. My mother had vision problems, but (thank God) the doctor said she'll be okay. I found out I have hypothyroidism. So I take a pill and have more energy. Woo-hoo! I just went to the spine doctor and he reminded me of my congenital spine abnormalities. They just keep me away from contact sports, and evidently I'm not suppose to jog either. Why I am telling you all this, I do not know. It would be cool to put up a picture of my xrays though. I always thought xrays looked cool. My favorite one was the one I had of my brain one time. I wish I could get a copy of that... just to look at it. I took one similar to the one up above today. Mine doesn't look like that though. The c1 and c2 of mine doesn't have its back. It is cool looking. Okay, that is enough. I tend to be fascinated with my own medical problems. Maybe I'm a hypochondriac... I just took a test and it said I have minor hypochondria. Maybe just the fact I took the test proves my hypochodria.... Okay, time to stop typing again.

I really have nothing against homosexual people. But I do not think they should have marriage. The government could come up with some kind of legally binding thing or something.
