Guinea Pig

Working in a hospital is an interesting experience. Instead of blank walls decorated with photos or prints as in a college or university development department, everywhere are directions, information, or flyers.

Since I work in a research area, there are also ads from vendors selling DNA sequencing and protein samples, a novel idea to me. And last week, a neon pink flyer caught my eye: one of the hospital doctors was doing a research study on fibromyalgia. So today I tore off one of the tabs at the bottom on the flyer and called.

The study will involve the effects of Tai Chi on fibromyalgia. In a few weeks, I'll be heading to a research center for an evaluation to see if I qualify for the study. I don't think there's any compensation, but I've always wanted to try Tai Chi, so it should be interesting.
