Why an the Old Bush Radio means so much to me….

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:26 pm by Aleksan

Being laid up, not focussing well to read and with time to contemplate the mysteries of life, past and present, this afternoon my mind turned to an old Bush Radio. This meant a lot to me back in about 1960, in bed in our school Sanatorium, “the San”

I had become quite ill with Chickenpox aged 16, and spent a few weeks in the San recovering. One day my tall Farmer Uncle Bunt turned up to visit me, and brought me his Bush Radio to listen to until I recovered. This was an act of kindness I have never forgotten and I loved that Bush Radio, then and always since.

I was unwell for a year or too with fatigue but got into Medical College OK. In my second year I developed the neurological symptoms which have dominated my life since. At first diagnosed with MS, a review at Oxford some years ago found that my illness was more like Neuromyelitis Optica, a condition that is commonly a complication of Chickenpx in adults.

    OPMS has become synonymous with headshops, gas channels ,
    and smoke shops. This really is sufficient alone to create many Kratom
    fans question the visibility of these products. You are going to come across a
    lot of commentary about Kratom silver and gold online, and also much of this is not exactly inspiring.
    We all do have to give O.P.M.S. credit for staying a viable company within the
    O.P.M.S Kratom retail landscape as 2009, yet. They’re definitely doing something right, whether that’s making use of their services and products or even only the eye watering packaging.
