Roger Wolfson: The Gym No Matter What

Roger Wolfson: The Gym No Matter What

TL:DR: "Always go to the gym, no matter what. If you decide to hit the happy hours after work and get loaded on apps and drinks, it's especially important that you make it to the gym.

On discovering I am an aphant with aphantasia at 50 years old

Until now, I had always believed that the mind's eye was figurative. I've always had vivid dreams but when I close my eyes, my head goes dark. The only sounds I ever hear in my head are through my ears and the only waking visions I have come through my eyes. Counting sheep before bed is 100% counting and 0% sheep.
