YOU ARE NOT A GADGET

It’s early in the twenty-first century, and that means that these words will mostly be read by nonpersons – automatons or numb mobs composed of people who are no longer acting as individuals. The words will be minced into atomized search-engine keywords within industrial cloud computing facilities located in remote, often secret locations around the world. The vast fanning out of the fates of these words will take place almost entirely in the lifeless world of pure information. Real human eyes will read these words in only a tiny minority of the cases.

And yet it is you, the person, the rarity among my readers, I hope to reach.

The words in this book are written for people, not computers.

I want to say: You have to be somebody before you can share yourself.

My name is Dr. Elizabeth McClung and I have a terminal disease.

This disease combines:
 
Autoimmune Disease of unknown origin which affects the immune system of the brain, destruction of the thyroid (as a secondary issue) and other autoimmune systems of the body and,
 
Autonomic: I have both central (heart, lungs blood pressure, blood circulation, oxygen and nutrient absorption) and peripheral autonomic failure (extremities circulation, delivery of nutrients to parts of the body, circulation consistent on both sides and neurological issues)
 
Neuropathy (the destruction of the five types of nerves all over the body) plus the muscles to which they are attached.
The loose general types of ultra rare disease of this type can only be determined by exclusion (excluding everything else) and in autopsy. They are called AAN after the three aspects. I will soon be alive four years from start of symptoms. That is a long time for someone with AAN, and I have outlasted the prediction of two neurologists. Read more…..
