    Thanks for the link love! And thanks for the trigger warning as well. I hadn’t thought to put one at the head of my post, and I really should have done so. Will amend it presently.

    –Doc S.

    The mattress story is f*cken hilarious!

  6. Comradde PhysioProffe Says:

    The early retirement post is kind of interesting. I guess retiring early like that would be appealing if you don’t enjoy your work. Both PhysioWife and I love our jobbes, and even if we had a bajillion dollars in the bank, we’d keep doing them.

    Many thanks for including me, err my grandparents and their mattress (that just sounds wrong) in this week’s link love.

    Here’s a question for you:
    Do you think it’s possible for someone to be a “financial anorexic”? eg. from Wikipedia on anorexia nervosa:
    “…the most common theme seen across the board is the element of self-control. Therefore, when looking at the underlying cause behind the disorder, one would see that it is rarely about the food (ie. money) itself; it is about the individual attempting to gain complete control over an aspect of their lives, in order to prove themselves, and distract them from another aspect of their lives they wish they could control; they pride themselves on the ability to resist the temptation of food (ie. money), even in the case of extreme hunger (ie. “normal or average” expenditures.)
    Hmm. Maybe I should post on this… :-)
