I hope you read this article because it has some good information in it about the things I am going to discuss here. It was published Friday. I really hope you take the link for the sex article as it is hysterical. Not a serious article at all more of a dry sense type of humor much like some of the British humor I enjoy so much.
The issue of the court cases is so personal to your individual situations it is almost impossible to discuss without all the information and I am not the one to do that with. I am not discussing the ones I am doing either. Those are all more of the DMCA type of case with the infringing being a part of it. If you decide to make it hard on the infringers just make sure you are willing to finish it. They will get a lot of advice from people even so called experts. Read the rest of the article about so called experts before following their advice and hope the infringers also take a look.
The domestic issues are still being discussed and will be addressed as they may have some relevance to the other issues but the health issue is putting everything on a minor hold for a little while until things calm down some. They will always be with anyone who thinks being alone is wrong so get used to the world of having to deal with people.
The information on the iodine and bromide is pretty serious stuff. As stated I am what the iodine test calls critical. It appears that I have bromide toxicity and will start detox this week. It is not heavy metal poisoning but some say it is close. It sure has the symptoms going back to 2009 and the blackouts and such. It was also the time that I was “diagnosed” as a diabetic. The iodine deficiency and bromide overload both create the illusion of being a diabetic and many people have their symptoms reversed or eliminated by treatment. This will either be very easy or extremely hard. Every case is different. I am sharing it in the last article and making a not here because of the diabetics who have many of the same issues I have had and claim it is impossible to function even as a photographer. That is just being a quitter. Make sure you get tested other than the simple blood sugar test. It may not be near good enough. Just remember, if you are always tired (like a balloon with the air going out of it), can’t sweat, lose hair on your body or do not grow hair like most people, have the emotional and physical highs and lows you may be suffering from basically being poisoned. The bromides stop the receptors from accepting iodine and that is what makes the thyroid work with the blood sugar. The last article has link to the symptoms so check it out or just go there without the other information. Do not let this just go without checking it out. You can die from it. I passed out a couple of times going back to Florida in 2009. One time I ended up off the road and other in a gas station landing on the floor.
I had several signs that just did not add up and the docs all said it was signs of diabetes. I lost the hair on my legs and arms, my fingernails went soft and curled and memory issues started coming up. The side effects can go from minor headaches, sexual dysfunction, pain, vision issues and others listed on the links. Do not let it become a live style because someone does not run a test. Who knows if you really are a diabetic and need to take meds that cause even more issues?
The final determination on the images has not been completed and will not be for a while pending the more important health issue. This can take months to resolve as the links in the other article show.
I have cut back on many things to try to get the truth about the diabetes and other items including writing articles as it is much more important than the other items at this time. The level of my deficiency of iodine is extreme and it may have been here for a long time. The bromide issue is new to me as is the iodine but it has a lot credibility with my on and off diabetes symptoms especially with the extremely low iodine level. Do not take this as medical advice but as information for you and your doctor to discuss. Many doctors are coming on board now with the new studies. Most are being done in England and Europe with some being done in Japan so the Western culture is slowing beginning to see the need for something other than a quick band-aid solution.
Do not let things like this stop you from following your dream of getting out and taking great photographs. You can beat it or at least control it instead of giving up and letting it control you.
