Bad news and…

I’ve just arrived home from a 3 day stint in hospital, where everything I did I had someone up my ass… literally. You can now add colitis to my chart. At least it gives me something in common with the girl in the song Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Unfortunately, it means I’ve had my first full colonoscopy. Let’s just say that I’m not a fan.

And…

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE ROLLING STONES are playing in Vancouver likely on the day after my death,but will I get tickets? Or die trying?

Place your bets now.

Optomize your prescription eyeglasses

Over the past few months, I’ve been getting some bad headaches, and after my latest brain scans turned up, nothing unusual for my brain I had my eyes checked. Not just checked, but more thoroughly examined than ever before through a process called optomization in Canada or neurolens in the USA . The process is based on the connection between eyes and brain,and I highly recommend it to anyone who has had a stroke because it can help with things like spatial reasoning and balance. For instance, I suffer from left side neglect from my stroke, and you’ll never guess what they did to address it. There is now a small peice of translucent tape on the inner corner of my right lens that forces my left eye to connect with my brain better, giving me somewhat better balance and making the neglect far less. Also, I’m now wearing a bifocal for the first time ever, and I’m liking it . The exam and glasses were somewhat pricey but well worth it for the improvements that I’m seeing. And the headaches are gone.

So, without further ado,here I am in my new glasses …

Safety, security, and independence in your next power wheelchair?!

Meet Luci,a system of cameras and sensors that can keep you from falling off curbs, running into people who stop short in front of you or even help with spatial reasoning. For instance, I still suffer left side neglect from the massive stroke I had more than 8 years ago and if I had LUCI installed on my wheelchair i wouldn’t have to worry about scraping the door frames everywhere i go. If you know anyone who could use something like this ,please watch the video below for more information about this very necessary technology.
