been hit three times. I received a direct strike through a window as I was
walking through living room while in Oak Ridge, TN, in 1995. The lightning
went on to hit the TV and melt the circuit board. I was hit in the stomach and
received a burn on my right arm and blew a hole in my shirt sleeve. I had severe neuropathy
[tingling or pain] the instant that I was hit that never went away completely, though after a few
months it wasn't quite as severe.
In Flagstaff, AZ, in 2005, I was hit while
on landline telephone. Ruptured ear drum and severe headpain.
In August 2007, I got hit in my right hearing aid. I heard a staticy
electricicity sound in my right hearing aid and then got severe
stabbing pain where the hearing aid touches the skull behind
the ear. Lightning had just struck in the woods in front of my
place while I was out on the porch just seconds before I experienced
the hit to the hearing aid. From that I had temporary pain behind
the ear, tinnitis and it has flared the PTSD.
I now have severe
neuropathy, chronic pain,digestive problems, aphasia, aphraxia,
frontal lobe damage, PTSD and short term memory loss, which has
been diagnosed by a neuropsychologist.
