RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
MHS has largely cleared my lungs of the need for me to cough now. When I do, it is productive.

Yesterday I tried an experiment, running a short distance. The result was positive, I was not as winded as I would have been a month ago. Exactly how much less winded, I don't know, but it was noticeable.

The interesting thing is that I am still exhausted all the time. I went to bed yesterday at 1 pm, woke up at 11 pm, ate and went back to bed at 11:45 and woke up again at 7:15 am. Whatever it is doing, it is still not finished.

But, I have managed to get an outline done of what I want MLS 5.5G to do. Just not sure when I will have the energy to work on MLS 5.5G.

At this point, MHS seems to be largely done with whatever heavy lifting it had to do. I am not eating myself out of house and home anymore, not sleeping 14 to 24 hours a day and I am not coughing much at all. I have been able to even get some light exercise without exhausting myself. I do still cough, but it's probably 90% less than before. I will be using MHS until the end of this month. It has been an amazing ride.

Point #1: Went out yesterday metal detecting around noon. Intentionally did not wear a hat or sunscreen. Stayed out in the sun 3 hours. I have zero tolerance for sun because I'm almost never out in it. I knew this would get me a sunburn, and I knew this would give me an opportunity to see how MHS works on sunburns. Got myself moderately sunburned and by the end of the day I was seriously uncomfortable. This morning... no pain. Most people could not even tell I was sunburned yesterday. I have never in my life had a burn that bad be painless the next day. Go MHS!

Point #2: MLS 5.5G begins today. Release the hounds!!!

Stripdown process underway.

RE: Shannon's Journal, Volume 2
Alright... little update.

MLS is in development, but I have had to pause to develop a way around an issue I encountered early on. Been developing that. It's not exactly very interesting, so I haven't said anything. I should be done doing that little side project tomorrow or Monday, at which point development of the main program will continue and you'll be much more likely not to fall asleep if I tell you what I happen to be doing.

Yesterday I took a walk on a way the hell out there in BFE nature trail with GF. While we were there we encountered a truck with all sorts of chemical containers. While we were out in the field, we started smelling what I at first thought was diesel fuel. Turns out they were spraying herbicide to kill an invasive species. Those chemicals are so toxic that just the fumes, from dozens of yards away, have since resulted in me coughing my brains out for more than 24 hours.

Last night when I turned on MHS, instead of it's usual "let's drift off to sleep now" since the majority of the main healing was done, it went full on drill sergeant on me. Lungs got hot again for the first time in over a week, and all of a sudden it was demanding food. I was exhausted, but I had to get up and eat. Went to IHOP and had an entire omelette and side, and before I got home, it was as if I had never eaten. MORE FOOD, MAGGOT! I went to my fridge and started eating a corned beef that I had left overs of. While temporarily sated, I went to bed. Slept 10 hours. Still coughing like crazy, but nothing is coming up.

So either this is an allergic response, or the chemistry has severely irritated my lungs. So glad that even when I drive an hour out into the middle of nowhere, I can't avoid the sound of engines or the chemical stupidity that is herbicide application.

Before that I was breathing better than I have in 10 years, and coughing less too.

Well today has been very interesting. I should be done with the issue I am working on in about the next 6 to 8 hours, if I can remain awake that long. But I have made some discoveries along the way that are most enlightening.

Still doing boring prep/maintenance work on MLS, but at least I'm doing something different now.
