I know it's been a while but I've been going through lots. It turns out that Carol's friend at the lab could not identify what made me sick but he did make a very interesting discovery in my blood...a genetic anomaly that makes me immune to whatever Hal tried to pass on to me. That is why I developed that crazy fever & my symptoms stopped, unlike Hal's.
Carol was worried when she noticed my writing was deteriorating, at times. I noticed the same in Hal's writing. She was afraid whatever I had was affecting my brain but it turned out it was my fever. Thankfully,once the fever stopped so did most of my symptoms but my skin pigmentation is still different due to dehydration of my skin & I still had a few lesions I developed on my body but those have almost completely healed after undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital. I wonder if I'll ever be completely normal again.
I'm still trying to find answers; it should be easier now that I've sort of got my health back. Hal is out there somewhere. Actually, sometimes I get the feeling that...Hal is watching.
Jas, sweetness, I really need to meet with you.
