Ooooh, I am in your dreams... I am almost afraid to ask what did I do in them!

Curious fact: it is actually raining heavily, I am out of my job and I am wearing shorts and sandals... Not good.

Maybe you wanted to warn me not to get soaked xD

Edit: apparently, I found a solution not to get my clothes wet.

I'm out for my morning walk, a pilgrim who is on the Road to Santiago approaches me. She speaks perfect English, from the accent I guess she might be British but I'm unsure.

I answer her, in a heavily accented, barely comprehensible attempt on English.
Shame on me! I have spent so much time without practising my spoken English that I've got really bad at it.
I was specially ashamed because I was writing a long post quite effortlessly here. I'm writing a campaign journal in English too! And I cannot even give a couple of simple directions in spoken English!
  • I'm not around because I cannot connect to Paizo except when I'm on VPN at my work computer. Not the ideal forum for Paizo posts. (But since when has that stopped me before?)
  • I was amazed when, for my Ph.D. exam, I had to translate a French technical paper and had no difficulty whatsoever. Reading/writing in a foreign language is SOOOOO much easier than speaking/understanding it, because your brain has all the time in the world to parse it, and pronunciation doesn't matter.
  • Sorry, Freehold; we're barely breaking 70 around here. All you need is $1.2 million and you can afford a shack! Or I think refrigerator boxes are going for a cool $600k.
  • Anyway, speaking of work...

    Well.

    Now I'm freaked out that I somnopeeped on kileanna...

    You didn't do anything other than greet me. Your English was perfect, although there is a chance you were being automatically translated into English in the dream. I remember standing in a bodega...asking for directions maybe? I'm not sure.

    It is also bust my luck that you are naked here, and not in my dreams.

    An English speaker asked me today for directions!!! Oh,my, stop peeping!!!

    See I feel like writing English is harder then speaking it. So many rules that don't make sense. Of course obviously kile has a lot more practice writing it then speaking it. So it does make sense for her.

    At least they use normal letters. Spoken English involves issuing sounds that are unpronounceable for humans, only deep one hybrids can issue them out of their gilled throats...

    Hey, everyone. What I'm about to tell you will make you upset and sad, but there's no getting around it. It seems, sometime last night, that I suffered a mini-stroke. I was fine when I went to bed, with only a headache. When I woke up a little while ago, I had double vision. I checked my eyes in a mirror. My right eye no longer aligns with the left. It points, at rest, outward and slightly down. And it no longer reacts properly to bright light.

    It's okay for everyone to worry about me. It's okay for everyone to be sad about what happened. But please, don't be sad for me. I'm still here, okay? Aside from the inconvenience of no longer having depth perception, I'm fine. I've got no muscle weakness on the right side, my speech is fine, and my face doesn't sag. But I won't tell you not to cry, if you want.

    Yeah, I'm tearing up while trying to give some comfort. That joke I made several months ago about being made from bargain-bin parts doesn't seem so funny now. Karma, I guess.

    You are going to the er, right?


    No. Going to the ER only helps if within an hour. Right now, after the entire night, there's no point. The damage has been done. Thanks for asking, my friend.


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    Any other form of medical help available as quickly as possible?

    (initially I typed "heal" instead of help... if only was that as easy...)

    PLEASE get thee to a doctor anyway -- physical therapy can help immensely. Yes, the success rate varies, but it's at least worth trying!


    Yes, but physical therapy is a long term process. ERs can't help right now.

    Are you sure it's a stroke. Bell's palsy is kinda similar and treatable with steroids. Either way, gotta see a doctor at some point, no one wants a second stroke. :-(

    Get well soon!

    And at least Google various physical therapies you can do at home or on the cheap. :-)

    My mother suggested going to the eye doctor, first. She's a retired nurse. Who am I to argue.


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    She also said that I should start by going through the Insurance company, first. Doing so might save me trouble later. I'll do it at work, since I'm not currently in life-threatening danger.

    Yikes! :(

    The other FaWtLies are right, though, John - at least get some sort of qualified healthcare professional to check it out...

    And let me chime in with the rest of the "Get thee to a doctor, John" choir. Even if they can't do anything about the immediate issue, they're really good at discovering resulting problems and help you nip them in the bud before they become a thing.

    +1.

    I've heard that this kind of issues can be a warning and lead to further complications. Go see a doctor ASAP, John!

    I hope by the time you read this you're already on your way to a doctor or have already been. Positive thoughts for you and I hope that nothing more serious happens

    +(n) to all of the above!

    I'm praying for you, John, and get to a doctor immediately (and, if, by the time you get this, you have: good)!

    We love you, brother: take care of yourself, and be well!

    I am currently trying to understand the proof for the infinite sum of the 1/n^2 series, so that I can apply the process to other similar series.

    It is not going well.

    NobodysHome wrote:

    It's the physicist's favorite trick: Start off with a trig function (in this case sine), write out its infinite series, and then play with it until it matches what you want (in this case, 1/n^2).

    In this case, since you can formally prove that the series converges, their tricks apply, and the proof stands.

    Just for you NH!

    It's nice to finally be able to post the posts I've saved up for, like, the last while...

    Should perhaps clarify for younger FAWTLers that this wasn't a joke. The first incarnation of that band was indeed Marc Bolan and a guy calling himself Peregrin Took.

    Don't forget Saruman had a Death Metal band.

    Up until he died if I'm not mistaken.
