Shall I eat these fancy hospital biscuits?

[science thread]
Important vote 🍪🍪🍪
The packet tells me that each biscuit has 300kJ = kilo joules
Or 72kcal = kilo calories, ie 72,000 calories

But the box says "72 calories per biscuit"

So what's that about?

A #special #warning for my folks w or w/o #disabilities who might be taking #Flexeril / #cyclobenzaprine

it says on the warning sheet that very few folks have had #depressive #sideeffects, and maybe I'm just a rarity.

but if i have to take that thing for 2x in a row
waaaugh!
It's small & #insidious.
It starts with "will I ever get better?" & it can escalate into, "Why do I try?" depending how long I am on it.

I only need it sporadically, but yeah.
Changed my world to know that was a possibility.
Now I can say after using it..."Is this thought real?"
For those who would suggest other methods, this one is the best one i have for now.
(In a few years, maybe something that works better will come along or they might know more about why #EhlersDanlos happens)

In the mean time I wanted you to know, in case this happens to you too.

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
