Why I think the Tachycardia is brain related…

When Don beat the crap out of me, because of Freda & Peggy after we got to Japan… when I was down and out for those few weeks, probably because of a bleed on the brain and no they never took me to the doctor…

After Texas, any injury would have meant the end of Don’s military career… they sent us to Japan to hide the scandal in Big Springs, Texas after Donna’s birth… the half-sister from hell…

Anyhow… the reason I think it is related to the Brain, is because of that beating and the subsequent recovery my body went through… I remember it vividly…

When I went back to Japan in the 80’s, Yokota and most of the far east, got hit with one of the worse flu seasons ever and people were dying… and I mean they were dropping in their tracks…

I got that flu and happened to be on a bowling league and I was so sick that I remember that night and my game and the audience I had as we were the last league team to finish, I was moving that slow… now why is that important…

You see I bowled a game that was all strikes until the 10th frame and my last throw made it a spare and strike in the 10th frame… and the whole bowling alley was watching, and I remember just wanting to die, because I was so sick… the flu hit me during that game… my score is still hanging at the bowling alley at Yokota AFB… it was the last time I bowled in a league… and the name is under Glass… that was my married name, if you want to check… I think that was around 1986, but I could be off a year…

Anyhow… that flu that killed so many and filled our hospital up at the base, is why I know the incident in 68 was a brain injury…

I have never had the flu again with any symptoms even remotely like what happened in 68 and that is what had me confused for so long about the brain injury… I associated 68 down time with the flu, when in fact it was another brain injury…

My adopted sis, lived next door to us in base housing and she would come over and check on my comatose body while my ex husband was at work… I don’t remember how many people died… but I never want to have any flu like that again and that was when I decided flu shots were a good thing…

My point is this… we all have moments in time that imprint on us… for someone like me with this goofy memory ability… we remember everything and I mean everything…

Something I have worked at undoing and now, I just accept it and allow the brain to make the memories it wants and if they are important, it is automatic, if It is something I need to associate with something else, it takes a little more effort…

All those times I said to Freda, when we lived in Mena that I remembered that flu when we lived there in 68, she never made a comment and she never made eye contact… that is how I figured out how to know when someone was concealing information that was important to my well-being…

Does this make sense to any of you… doesn’t matter… this is my bread crumb trail for that book I am trying to write… 

I am so looking forward to that acreage in the middle of no where and the peace and quiet and solitude I will need to commit all this into a book form that hopefully people will read and just maybe take something from it for the good of humanity…

I have seen so little humanity from any people on this planet… there are the exceptions, but those have been few and far between…
