Concerts of the Future

Is this the new paradigm?

Will you feels safe in a crowd?

This will have a profound impact in many, I believe.

Will we be like “The Boy in the Balloon”?

  1. I’ve been in a strange existence since having chemo to wipe out my immune system; for the past 18 months I’ve kept away from crowds, antibacterial wiped table tops when out in a cafe, avoided being within arm’s length of people in a queue, always delving into my pocket for hand sanitiser whenever I touch anything someone else might have (door, rail, chair, keypad, even items in shops) and so I’ll just continue with that as normal!

  2. I share your immune system. Four years ago I got Guillian Beret a viral disease that attacks the peripheral nervous system.

    I spent six weeks in ICU as a quadriplegic and two more months in rehab learning to do everything we take for granted again. Walking, picking up a spoon, going to the bathroom by yourself.

    Life has challenges for all of us, different each one of them.

  3. Guilliaine Barre syndrome is so frightening for people to go through, especially full paralysis. Hopefully yours (faulty immune system) was a one off, and mine (being obliterated) will grow back without the attacking part! A lot of people fully recover from Guillain Barre syndrome even though it can take years, so I really hope you are one of them.

  4. Haha sorry about autocorrect!

  5. Some do, some do not. It is an ascending disease, starts at the toes, upward. It leaves the opposite, and my toes feel like that numb cold feelings in winter all the time.

    I was paralyzed but my pain was amplified. Not being able to move with intense pain, was a very vulnerable position.

    I was 64, housed in an old hospital, one floor dedicated to rehab. My peers were mostly my age, heart attacks who survived and needed intense therapy.

    Most people would say why me. Fortunately my practice had prepared me for this. Years earlier a triple rollover and my recovery prepared me for this challenged.

    Already I had fusions, loss of career and chronic pain.

    Now, somehow I blurted our why not me.

    I was a former pro athlete, I was an avid meditator, and this rehab had occupational,stuff, a full kitchen and a gym.

    Who had more skills to combat this.

    My whole life from childhood had pain to endure, I knew this way.

    I made a pact to myself, I would greet everyone with a smile.

    I brought music into the gym and encouraged others to try harder.

    I told the doctors nurses and therapists I was different. Disbelief was their response.

    My plight was supposed to land me in a wheelchair for at minimum a year and maybe two. Special nurses and handrails etc. were detailed.

    Seven days later I took three steps from that wheel chair.

    Opinions changed, they wanted to know how I did that.

    First I did not accept their paradigm. If I believed I would be in the wheel chair for a year, that would of been my reality.

    I just meditated in my room alone and pledged to not worry.

    One of the things that helped was helping others, being compassionate to those around me and writing in my blog.

    It took the focus off of me.

    I knew how to work out for six months leaving results alone till the next season.

    We have incredible powers of will and determination inside all of us.

    They thought what I did incredible, but many of my peers had just as much or more determination than me.

  6. I might have spelled it wrong also

    Hahs

  7. It sounds like a good recovery and always much better if it’s a speedy one.

  8. Yeah. Though the first one gave away a person’s name on my contacts and the second one the phone didn’t autocorrect for some strange reason! 😂
