oxtail

I'm pretty sure I've never eaten oxtail before, and I definitely haven't tried Chinese medicine, so my subconscious must be going to great lengths to find an association that will alert me to a need for B12.  So far, I've been ignoring the craving for liver and onions, since it would stink up the house something awful if I cooked it myself.  I don't know of any restaurants that serve it that are close enough for an evening bicycle trip.

I dreamed last night that I went to a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner for general checkup.  He prescribed me ground up dried oxtail to add to my meals.  Its intended benefit for me was the B12 value in the bone marrow.  Not a very subtle subconscious hint, is it?

In other news, I paid my "first" (second time around) premium for MN Care, so I will have health insurance again on the 1st of July.  It amuses me that the doctor I asked for B12 injections last time said my values weren't low enough to warrant it and he doesn't like giving people injections just because they feel tired.  Yet the podiatrist started me on B12/cofactor pills when my B12 levels were even higher.  I dunno, I just want to feel energetic again, and without the muscle twitches.  I do seem slightly better on both counts since I've started bicycle commuting, so regular exercise does seem to help a bit.
