    Adelene Dawner: Back to the diet thread, it's interesting how so many of my sensory aversions have dissapeared in the last couple of months.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: aversions to specific food textures or tastes?
    Adelene Dawner: Yes-and. I experience aversions to specific sensations in all five major senses. There are specific sensations that I find physically painful, for no apparent reason,  that other people aren't bothered by. And yes, some of them have become non-painful and others are less painful.
    Stim Morane: How do you account for this change?
    Adams Rubble is thinking what varied and wonderful side effects to PaB so many of us have
    Adelene Dawner: I don't, Stim. It's pretty mysterious. The only clue I have is that my startle response has changed to keep pace with some of them - one of my big sound aversions is sudden loud sounds of most kinds, and where before they'd be literally painful, now I do a 'jump out of my skin' thing but there's no pain.
    Stim Morane: This is understandable ... people have long known that more awareness of what things are diminishes their coercive "charge". This is the principle behind the ancient "suchness" notion, at least on an ordinary life level.
    Stim Morane: By "what things are", I mean more direct appreciation
    Adelene Dawner: The startle thing seems to be related to the fact that I'm slowly realizing that it's okay - normal, even - to react to things in a way that others can see. But that doesn't explain the rest of the aversions dissapearing. The fact that I can eat veggies now is... weird.
    Stim Morane: Good for you!
    Stim Morane: Veggies are calling out to you ...
    Adelene Dawner rolls her eyes at Stim.
    Stim Morane: I'm not entirely joking.
    Adelene Dawner: I know, and it's a good thing, it's just a bit... I donno, it just doesn't seem right to be praised for something that's been completely involuntary in every iteration.
    Adams Rubble: Well the praise comes from the work you did to get there Adelene
    Adelene Dawner didn't do nuffin, What're you talking about?
    Adams Rubble: You have been observing, watching
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Perhaps it's doing nothing that you have done.
