The Paralyzed Language

I want to start this article with the fact that 20 out of 100,000 people suffer from total paralysis.

And a number of them aren't able to communicate with the ones they love because they aren't able to afford technology to talk to the ones they love.

And not just that, they are also unable to say what they need; I want to eat, drink, go to the toilet, etc.

It's a hard situation for the paralyzed people and the ones they love.

So here comes my idea of the "Paralyzed Language".

It's an idea like using the Maurice code, but by using your eyes.

Here's how it works.

The idea is that a blink is a "." And the "_" is the closure of the eye and the reopening.

And here is each symbol and what it represents:

. _ yes

_... No

_. _. Help

_.. Hungry

. Thirsty

.. _. Discomfort

__. Need medical attention

.... Need to talk to someone

.. Refereeing to family member or friend

. ___ bathroom

_. _ Sleep

. _.. Cold

__ Hot

_. Happy

___ Sad

. __. Frustration

__. _ thanks

. _. Now

... Later

_ Here

.. _ There

... _ Home

So by using this language, the paralyzed people will be able to speak again in their own way and communicate using their eyes. #totallyparalyzed #Paralyzed #Language #Speak #newspeech

Depression is...

So hard to explain my depression. Words alone leave me frustrated. A few days ago I attempted to use fewer words and instead use pictures and music. Two days later I came up with this: #Suicide

#COVID19 ruined 3 years of speech & swallowing therapy!!!

I’m having #Anxiety due to #COVID -19 and being high risk. Living with #PostPolioSyndrome #GuillainBarreSyndrome . #ThyroidCancer
Thyroid surgery has ruined my life. If I knew what the results would be, I would rather be dead. It #Paralyzed my vocal chord which left an opening to my airways causing #AspirationPneumonia with #Sepsis . By the time I was taken to the ER my temp was 103.7F. Blood Pressure was 100/50. I had stopped breathing. I was logged in as ‘Acute Respitory Failure’. My organs were shutting down. And I was admitted to ICU for few weeks. Then spent a year of #PhysicalTherapy to learn how to do simple things like walking or turning pages.
Then came years of nothing but hell. All the progress I made was mostly washed away.
Ironically, I totally lost my voice and my career is in #Music #songwriting and #Singing . But that’s no longer possible.


And the ENT doctor said he can do a permanent repair (surgery) and my voice would be sort of normal. I’ve had too many surgeries already.

If have #Surgery I’m scared to death. I will have more complications. I get #PTSD just thinking of anything with the name #Surgery of # Procedure.

I can’t go through more surgeries. I’d rather be dead than to keep suffering and wasting my life seeing doctors and being in hospital. For what?

My one problem is the effect it will have on my wife, my family, & three I’m not thinking of suicide. I’m just thinking of stopping all the BS. What will be wi
