This is a Nederlog of Sunday, July 14, 2019.

1. Summary

This is not a crisis log and will explain why I stop with crisis logs though I will continue with Nederlogs if and when I am considerably fitter.

2. I've got a TIA on July 5

Here is my description of a TIA in e-mail from July 7 (which I did not know then):

Now for the strange affliction I had on July 5 (and to some extent still: I slept 4 hours in the last 55 hours in spite of being very tired). It started on 14.25 on Friday, when I had not done anything special, but suddenly felt faint. That has happened a couple of times before, and what I do then is go to bed for 1/4 or 1/2 of an hour, after which it has mostly gone. But not Friday. Instead what happened was that I was 4 hours quite faint and also could hardly move for 4 hours: I could not use the left side of me at all, and could only move a small bit with my right side, but not - even - enough to move from my left side to my right side, however much I tried. Also, for 4 hours I was panting. After 4 hours this subsided, and I could move - after a while - to my right side, and even could get up, which was quite necessary, for the tortellinis I was starting to cook immediately before I felt very faint had been cooking for 4 hours (ordinarily ready after 17 minutes) and the room and the kitchen were full of smoke. I was rather happy, for that was all, but in other circumstances I might have died simply because I hardly could move for 4 hours and there might have been a fire.

Since then I am a bit normal (also my mind) but it has been impossible to sleep more than 4 hours in the last 55 hours.

And this turned out to be a TIA. For more see the last link.

In fact, I am relatively well, for I don't have any of the several things I might have had, except that I slept between 2 and 3 hours a night since July 5, until last night, when I slept 6 1/2 hours.

It will probably take a week to undo my lack of sleep, and the week after that I will see a cardiologist (the diagnosis was made on July 12 by my GP).

After that I have to see what I can do, but I decided anyway to stop the Crisis series.

More later, though probably not in July.


[1] I have now been saying since the end of 2015 that is systematically ruining my site by NOT updating it within a few seconds, as it did between 1996 and 2015, but by updating it between two to seven days later, that is, if I am lucky.

They have claimed that my site was wrongly named in html: A lie. They have claimed that my operating system was out of date: A lie.

And they just don't care for my site, my interests, my values or my ideas. They have behaved now for 3 years as if they are the eagerly willing instruments of the US's secret services, which I will from now on suppose they are (for truth is dead in Holland).

The only two reasons I remain with xs4all is that my site has been there since 1996, and I have no reasons whatsoever to suppose that any other Dutch provider is any better (!!).
