Personal Narrative: Bell's Palsy

When I was in the seventh grade I woke up one morning and the right side of my face was completely paralyzed. I could not blink, raise my eyebrow, or fully smile. The right side of my face would droop down, my eye would become dry because I could no longer blink, and I could no longer taste anything that I ate. I was diagnosed with having Bell’s Palsy and the only treatment was that it would get better on its own over time. So for 8 weeks I walked around with a droopy face, having to blink my eye manually, and went to sleep with an eye patch on in order to prevent my eye from drying out.
I was extremely scared not only because I thought I would be paralyzed for the rest of my life but also because I was afraid that kids at school would laugh

La Singularidad

...NOTE: This PDF document has a handy set of “bookmarks” for it, which are accessible by pressing the Bookmarks tab on the left side of this window. ***************************************************** We are the last. The last generation to be unaugmented. The last generation to be intellectually alone. The last generation to be limited by our bodies. We are the first. The first generation to be augmented. The first generation to be intellectually together. The first generation to be limited only by our imaginations. We stand both before and after, balancing on the razor edge of the Event Horizon of the Singularity. That this sublime juxtapositional tautology has gone unnoticed until now is itself remarkable. We're so exquisitely privileged to be living in this time, to be born right on the precipice of the greatest paradigm shift in human history, the only thing that approaches the importance of that reality is finding like minds that realize the same, and being able to make some connection with them.
