The canary died.

Well, it has come. I am no longer a radiation canary. The ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) I have developed after a very bad bout with influenza has its own ups and downs, and I can no disentangle the radiation ups and downs from it… and I am not sure that I even have radiation ups and downs anymore. I’m just screwed.

An allusion to caged canaries (birds) that mining workers would carry down into the mine tunnels with them. If dangerous gases such as methane or carbon monoxide leaked into the mine, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners, thus providing a warning to exit the tunnels immediately.

(idiomatic) Something whose sensitivity to adverse conditions makes it a useful early indicator of such conditions; something which warns of the coming of greater danger or trouble by a deterioration in its health or welfare. (link)

I have been researching, writing, keeping a diary of my symptoms, talking about radiation-induced fungus, plant damage, other Japanese, Chinese, and American nuclear power plant meltdowns, the Bravo bomb, Fukushima, Honeywell Works, WIPP. I’ve been yelling and screaming.

That’s all behind me now, the rubber has hit the road, the shit has hit the fan. I am FRANTICALLY trying to stay one step ahead of this stupid disease, which few seem to know anything about, and especially doctors. Basically I have figure out what it is, from my own symptoms, and infer the whole damned disease process on my own, with increasing physical and cognitive impairment going on the whole time. I have to prioritize getting a handle on the symptoms so I can keep thinking, and so be able to find a more lasting solution to it.

So everything is all biochemistry now. I’m sorry… this is a radiation blog, but ME and its cousin CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) are really radiation sickness anyway. So it is somewhat on topic. Maybe I will be able to help the rapidly expanding number of people who will come down with this.

I’ve done all I can. I have to try to save my own ass now. Thanks everyone.

  1. Bobby, you’ve already helped me. Reading about your health, or lack thereof, is so similar to my own Neurocardiogenic Syncope and CFS that I empathize and remain amazed at how you struggle, and succeed, at bringing us the facts. I agree totally that this is radiation sickness. The brain fog is scary, and I hate it. The CFS is something no one can understand unless they themselves have it. You help those of us who suffer by sharing what we, too, are going through, and help those who don’t suffer yet by offering a first-hand account and not just hearsay. You are right. We are screwed.

    • Thanks for your support, Weez. This is something indescribable.

      Fortunately, I have had a partial remission the past few days. This was after two weeks of rapidly worsening symptoms. The remissions don’t fool me anymore, it will be back, and suddenly, when it happens.

  2. I don’t envy you. This is the one life you have.

    I am generally a laid back guy and give space for myself and others to make mistakes and hopefully grow from them
    …..there is one exception….I hope these nuke pukes…who seem to live well while here…receive a full and just sentence on judgement day for the evil they created, encouraged, maintained and supported….in addition to your help and care…..that thought keeps me going….you know….it’s quite simple…these nuke men and woman have a choice , a simple choice, to support evil or not….why these choose it is beyond me….

    Anyways, for what it is worth, my friend has a had MS for over 20 years….he feels that he is actually improving over the last few years due to a good organic diet, scalp massages and a whole body vibrating machine that he stands on for about 10 minutes..he believes it helps to keep his lymph nodes working properly….

    I hope you see you better and hope you carry on down the road….

    • David, I agree with you about the nuke pukes. They will reap what they have sown.

      There are a lot of similarities between ME and MS, they affect the brain a similar way, but the disease process is different. I was lucky, I have a year’s worth of phenibut, that I got for fibromyalgia symptoms. It was the one thing that helped at the beginning, when I had no idea what was happening. Phenibut is almost the same thing as baclofen. Some MS patients get intertrechal baclofen, that is, baclofen is delivered directly to the spinal fluid through a device. It helps with muscle spasticity. I have that too, somewhat, but mostly phenibut helps with the brain fog, which is debilitating.

    • I see that had a bit of the brain fog when looking at my writing. It was 2 am Seoul time when I had it. My bad.

  3. “Maybe I will be able to help the rapidly expanding number of people who will come down with this.”

    Of that, i have no doubt. Please make your articles freely available for download, if you agree. Important enough for cryptome & Richard Stallman of EFF/GNU. http://cryptome.org/ https://www.eff.org/
    Whatever you decide, i do hope your articles continue to be freely available.

    GTFOOT. Retreat, regroup, repair.

    Which reminds me, i meant to post this earlier.

    I’ve seen MS-like disease suddenly befall a man that was “strong as a sasquatch”.
    He went to the hospital complaining of stroke-like symptoms to be eventually told that he wasn’t having a stroke, told to go home, where he soon after had the real thing.
    Now he gets around with a walker.
    Very sobering and very tragic.

    It is a “call to duty” for all to do whatever they can to educate and enlighten people of these facts of our age and “season” we are in. If knowledge is power, it is no wonder so many feel utterly powerless.

    Sakaido hantai! A deep humble bow to you, Soltysik-sensei.

  4. I have similar experience following a 1 month visit to Japan 9/11. Taking alternative therapy of anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, immune-boosting supplements, and they worked; kept me working 12 hr. shifts. Had lots of fatigue w/ the pain and stiffness. More than 50% better now.

  5. March 27 I caught a bug. March 31 I reported puckered skin on my fingers. This was the first symptom of ME. April 1 I started to get very sick.

    I think the virus on March 27 was the same one as April 1. The ME actually began on the 31st, reduced my immunity, and I got re-infected the next day in a godawful way.

    Getting sick again. Too soon to tell if it’s a virus or the Fuku/WIPP variety.

    This turned out to be a minor bug of the 24-hour variety. It’s gone already.

    Vgirl and the baby are very sick though. I don’t know if they have this new bug, or the one I had 2-3 weeks ago. That was the worst bug I’ve had in 12 years.

    Italian grappa (pomace brandy) cleared up my hands well… very surprising. Unfortunately, it rained for the last two days, and not only is the skin breakout back, the skin on my fingers has puckered up like it does after you go for a swim. Weird. This kind of stuff seems to happen only when it rains.

    I’ve been taking care of my son for a few days, who had a 103 fever. Looks like I have come down with something. This is relentless. Proteinuria is back, which was bad two years ago. That means the kidneys are being affected again.

    I caught the illness my son had, and I have been flat on my back since last night. It’s too much trouble to find out where the thermometer is. Just absolutely clobbered by this.

    My son has had a 103 fever this weekend. Everyone around here seems to be sick. I had a bad flu 3 weeks ago, the worst since 2002.

  6. Good luck, Bobby1. I miss seeing your awesome data charts on mortality rates throughout the nation post-Fukushima meltdown explosions. Do you still compile those?. Keep trying to reduce your toxins & take care!~
    ~Your fan

    • Thanks, woodles. I look back on when I was doing the mortality studies, I had so much more energy back then. It took me 3 weeks just to write the programs to do it. And then I would download data every week and run the programs 100+ times. I doubt if I have one-tenth of one percent of the energy and focus I had then. It is really something.

  7. We are in the same boat. This is a fungus feeding on debris from dead cells. Boron, curcumin, sodium bicarbonate, anything antifungal that is made by nature can bring relief unless or until the fungus develops resistance. One possible danger zone is a broken sulphation pathway. I would be careful with sulphur foods if you have it. Chelate toxic metals per Cutler protocol, this is what I´ve been doing since I discovered it decades after Chernobyl. Dr. Simoncini is right about cancer. God bless you.
