Topic: How I survived Note, I'm afraid this is a bit wordy (2 msgs / 190 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
Mike,
     At the moment I only know of one of them, the first doctor  
decided that my wife and daughter had simply failed to notice the  
symptoms of mental deterioration earlier and that I was surrounded by  
ignorant relatives who failed to recognize the slow and consistent  
development of mental disability.  He recommended that I be installed  
in an institution for mental disability and expected to live there  
until I died a good many years down the line.  I am afraid that their  
discussion of the other two has not covered details but has just  
applied some negative labels to them a few times. When they are  
discussed my wife and daughter express some anger and I'm feeling  
right now that I don't want to make them suffer through the  
uncomfortable aspects of behavior prior to their successful effort to  
assemble a committee of four who called for quite frequent brain  
tests, I'm afraid that I can't recall the name of the type but they  
repeatedly  put my head in a machine that did very detailed scan of  
the structure of my brain and they found a problem show up in one of  
these that was only a few days later than an other one the did not.   
Within two house of this appearance of the problem I was hospitalized  
and under medication.  Within a few days  of this medication I started  
regaining consciousness.  However, I thought I was getting worse  
because I could keep seeing more thing that I could not remember.  The  
problem was that I was unaware of the three weeks of total  
unconsciousness and for the first several days I kept comparing the  
returning mind to the total memory before the period of  
unconsciousness. It was only after a few days that I was informed that  
my mind was coming back after being completely gone for three weeks  
and that I was making a mistake by comparing the returning memory with  
the total memory I recalled and realized that I am making progress.  A  
week ago I would not have been able to recall nearly enough to write  
this account of what happened.  And, I probably would not have been  
able to take the stance that my wife and daughter simply do not want  
to deal with some of the more unpleasant aspects of this struggle  
which made me one of the four percent successfully treated.   My head  
was examined by head x-ray frequently enough that the problem was  
subject to very quick treatment after the previous x-ray had not found  
it.
   Once I am better, I am going to try to collect a series of cases on  
dealing with this kind of health problem and see if I can identify  
patterns that cause people to delay identifying the problem, it is  
really different, to the point that it is too late to use the  
treatment of save patients in a majority of cases.  There are only  
about a thousand of these cases in the US in a year and treatment is  
only successful in about forty.  I really believe thorough and  
repeated testing for tumors for several weeks in cases where a sudden  
loss of mental  ability occurs could lead to an increase in more  
successful treatments.
     Sorry to have taken so long, but I wanted to get this out.
    Also our new roaster just arrived, I've got to open it and start  
learning about it.

At the beginning I thought you had a dilemma between your Anfim grinder and=
 your chainsaw but since it was a Skil and they don't make electric machine=
