I have a medical mystery that needs to be solved:
Why does sitting in a hospital room make me eat?
It doesn't make any sense, does it? I thought I had it figured out a few months ago. Mom did not have an appetite a few months ago and the doctors gave her a medicine that would make her hungry. I was sitting in the recliner next to her bed when they put the med into her IV and I immediately got up and bought a Snickers bar.
She doesn't have that problem this time, though, and I just got back from the cafeteria. I bought peach cobbler and Miss Vickie's Jalapeno potato chips. For me, not for her. Her room is on the seventh floor and I have walked up the stairs once to get off this extra weight, but you can't carry your food very well and climb the stairs.
Any scientific explanations would be appreciated.
