I celebrated my birthday today. It was a lovely day mostly spent with my son and this evening with a family friend. I received numerous phone calls, texts, Messenger, and Facebook Birthday wishes. All of which I am so very grateful for. Thank you! We saw Blade Runner: 2049. My son knows I love good Science Fiction. As a young teen, I devoured Science Fiction books by Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke and Philip K. Dick, to name a few. Blade Runner comes from a book published in 1968 by Philip K. Dick titled, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep“. The best science fiction, in my opinion, is accurately visionary and creates a scenario that has plausible science. It then asks the question of ethical responsibility, “If we do this, what then?” Think Jurassic Park, or Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This story asks, “When does a Robot, created by us in our image, cross the line and become a creature with a soul who then deserves the rights of a human, the builders?” I don’t want to go far into my musings about the film, except that it did its job well and has left me with a lot to ponder.
Most important was that I had a great day doing my favorite thing with people I love. You can’t ask for more than that! This was my first walk halfway through Chinook Mall with my son. He was impressed with me, “Look at you, charging halfway through the mall!” I explained early on in my blog that before Wahls, I barely frequented malls and if I did, then I had to bring my walker. I did fatigue at the end of the walk back to the Cinema and needed to sit for ten minutes, which was not enough time fore I then needed assistance to climb the stairs to the fourth row of chairs (no railing). Cognitively, my balance is very much still an issue. If I have nothing as in, I’m the only one on the sidewalk, my balance is fine. But, walking in between people as they walk in the opposite direction or when they come up behind me as one woman was breathing down my neck, despite moving over for her, she chose to stay on top of me, I lose my balance. I feel as if I am walking a tight rope and I am a bad tight rope walker. Suffice it to say that unless this vertigo issue heals, driving will be out of the question. We’ll see, I still have eleven months by the blue print plan I have in place for my healing schedule. Driving is one and half years after working the Wahls Protocol. That will be eleven months from today.
As this was a big day, I am very tired and will be going to the gym tomorrow morning. Therefore, I am going to call it a day. Earlier today, I updated most of the Monthly Symptoms page. I’ll finish the rest tomorrow. The new is under the sub heading November 1 under each section.
Wishing you fun and precious time with your family and loved ones and if a family is not available to you at this present moment, then I wish for you to find the family of friends who will care about you as you care about them.
