Yes, I've heard all the Buzz, but I strongly disagree!!!

First, please go and mute my playlist player, or turn it off on your speaker's, My music rrrreally rox and I want your undevided attention.. Ok, Hi , welcome back!! Now, I want to share with you why it is that I feel strongly that we as a people need to continue using the Character Verification thing. Let me see if I can perhaps persuade every single one of you to put it on your blogs. (and be sure and tell all your friends) I am one of those people who realize that when something happens to me (even tho I'm still only 38) that it is a sign for what will happen to me in the future.. Such as, sometimes when I am drifting off to sleep, I have a tremor (and lately it's not just when I'm drifting, its also starting to happen when I'm just chilaxin reading Twilight for the 11th time ( it had to be said) , or watching TV. All of the sudden my leg, (or arm) will just spasm , very briefly, just slightly. In that moment, I know, this is just further proof that I am having early signs of Parkinson's... I know, it's Ok, they are making major advances in this disease every day, and with a strong support system ( My Lord & Savior, Hubz, and good insurance) I am determined to make it...In my weaker moments I think that it's unfortunate that since I gave my life to the Lord I know I wont be able to throw back a Jack and Coke or 3 when the time gets nearer- Well, I prob. wont be able to hold the glass steady enough anyways.. Its perspective...)
Oh, and there are times when I cant remember how to spell the word 'The" or remember my own phone # . Just today I was on the phone with the Dr. at the Parkinson's research dept, He wanted my phone # when he was threatening that if I don't stop calling and leaving messages for him about the weird things that are happening to me, (like just now, I'm on the toilet as I'm typing this and my knee just jerked as I leaned over to get the tp ( you totally thought I was going to say as leaned to wipe , didn't you!? ) Hold on, I have to write the knee thing down for the Dr @ the Research Center, be right back... Ok, back, where was I? Oh yes, I'm sure you'll agree, those are definitely signs that I am due for Alzheimer's to set in at any minute. Which brings me to Character verification. I seek them out. I'm thankful to those of you that, against every ones badgering, pleading, threatening, that you stay strong and continue to use them. I strongly believe that they might just be what stave off the Alzheimer's, at least for a bit longer. Let me explain. When I pull up someones comment page, and I see it there I type my reply, then I scroll down to it, take one look at it and then try, in one take, to type it out without looking again.. I feel so good when I get it in one take.. Some of those are difficult, like 'cremuhged' how may of you could remember that in one take?? I am building my brain back, with the help of this wonderful Character Verification! So I just want to say thank you , to all of you that have made this a reality for me!! I also want to encourage you to stand your ground, don't give in to the threats and the nay sayers that say that they arnt going to come back, or that because it takes a xtra 10 seconds to leave a reply, it makes them shy away from reading your blog's. Waa waa wa, who needs those replies, not us my dear friends, NOT US!! So, wont the rest of you join us , in building a stronger future, its such a tiny way to give back, but the Brain you strengthen may just be yours, or maybe even someone you love... Take all the time you need, just remember every tick of the clock may take you closer to a ......... what the heck was I going to say...Wait, No, that wasn't.... well, maybe I'll... .......

Where's the character verification?

You really don't like it? I find it funny what weird words it sometimes comes up with that you say, actually phonetically.

So you seriously took it off? Robots are going to find you and leave garbage comments... Happened to me on a previous blog that is now defunct where I kept getting weird spam comments over and over and over again...

Jennifer said...

Girl, I never know if you're kidding or serious?! So, I think I'll wait to comment til I figure it out!LOL!

goodfather said...

OK, so now I'm officially terrified. I've been experiencing what I thought was just 'restless leg' when I've been going to sleep, but it might be Parkinson's?? Now I wish I had more than 4 months of insurance left...

Ali said...

I don't like the character verification but have you seen the ones where you type in the answer to a math problem? I love those!

Tabitha Blue said...

Haha, that is too funny... and I seriously hope you get through it all ok, even if I don't have mine turned on. :) Keep up the typing and remembering though, cause I don't think I would have remembered that!

Oh and BTW, love your hair this way!! You look so young! The color is cool too ;)

Thanks for stopping by to leave such an awesome comment on my page.
I really enjoyed reading your blogs.
Your words made me laugh out load quite a few times. Thanks~ I needed to laugh. Stay in touch when time allows you to do so.
You can play your music as loud as you want, it makes your page more inviting to music lovers like me who eat, breath, sleep and brush their teeth to music playing in the background daily. You Rock~ Dana

Parkinsons?? My Hubby worked for Medtronic in Tempe... they have, or are developing technology that will block the signal between the nerves and the brain to stop the shaking that is associated with Parkinsons. This of course is something you would want to discuss with your doctor, and to tell you the truth, I don't know if the technology has even been released yet.

P.S. Medtronic does many types of pain management devices, pacemakers, etc.. all implantable devices for the body.

Wow - this might be the only tribute to word verification I have ever seen! It makes me want to cry out, "RECAPTCHA!"

Brandi said...
