i'd take the time to read that , but i'm just too inactive at the moment ...
Hey, I'm disabled too!
I suffer from Motivational Impairment Syndrome
i keep trying to get the doctors to agree with me, but most of the time i just can't be bothered.
medical condition? sure. disability? absolutely not.
It's a poor headline, which doesn't reflect the content of the article; it might better read: Should lack of fitness be medicalized?
Moreover, the blog entry doesn't really do a good job of summarizing the original source. Sometimes the internet is like playing telephone.
Finally...the commentary author proposes links between deconditioning and debilitating autoimmune conditions like fibromyalgia. I think there may be a bit of a chicken-egg thing here.
I think the source piece stands as an advocacy paper for the medical benefits of exercise, and for the medical community to make a greater priority of promoting physical activity. It just doesn't seem very well crafted, and the NPR blog entry sort of reflects that.
Disability was never mentioned.
Knee jerk reaction.....no.
NO. It should be considered a "lazy a**ed Mofo" condition.
I love it, somehow it's now the doctor's or community's fault that folks want to be lazy. I guess if you don't have a park right next door then you can't walk on the street or sidewalk and if a doctor doesn't tell you to get off you a$$ then it must be okay to sit around all day.
For me, this is not a medical condition, it's a choice that has serious medical consequences. Someone that's physically active doesn't "come down" with these problems.
Disability does not mean inability.
Man I say that a lot ... just ask my guys
This this this.
gotta +1 this.
read the third post in this thread.
Well, okay, I did that. Still no mention of disability, nor in the linked blog entry, nor in the original source material...
Pfft, exercise caused my lack of exercise!
Exercise induced lazyness!
meant to say third post.
I didn't think it was a very good piece either but it's an interesting idea.
I think the things that lack of exercise cause are more of the medical condition, just like things that can happen from smoking are medical conditions .... however these should be concidered "Self Inflicted" Medical Conditions.
I find it unfair actually that a guy that has been smoking for 40 years gets all the medical treatment he needs paid by his insurance, however I'm trying to deal with a proven Birth Defect and have to pay for EVERYTHING out of pocket because Insurance won't cover it.
yeah real fair :/
I think never reading the linked article in the OP before commenting should qualify as a disability.
