Springtime in "Tornado Alley"
Spring time in, "Tornado Alley as it is called, is not a particularly great time for those who suffer from my type of dystonia. The Electricity in the atmosphere can drive the electrical signals in your brain crazy. This will be a short post. Well, because of storms and electricity in the air. It is very hard to concentrate during these times.
My wife and I used to sit out on the porch and enjoy these "Lightning Shows" together, While we where rearing our six children, and it was a getaway for us after the children had gone to bed. That time is long past even lightening 10-20 miles away can cause a Dystonic Storms.., Like today. We have since moved into a house with a basement which helps,
our lives are so different and somethings you might not think about, How about my sister who had to move because of the storms? that is different. Most people would never have to make the decision to move 2000 miles away Just to have some sort of health.Which is not Great but better than living through the Storms. And my children that is who I still apologize to the most. "Daddy Will you come outside and look at the lightning it is so cool", The older boys would say. How I would have loved to go out and sit and talk to them, but could not. It takes a mental toll on you and those around you. Just as a Side note My wife and I were in California on a business trip 5 years ago today, I can tell you then this is not where I thought I would be. Below are Pictures from a business trip just five short years ago!
