The year was 1984. Broad spectrum antibiotics had been in use for almost 20 years, but they too failed to serve the needs of the program.

Sometimes I imagine that we live in a world that might resemble something written by Ray Bradbury, H.G. Wells or Jules Verne. And so I start writing something like I did just above and then get stuck. Those first couple of sentences launch my mind off into a completely far flung area code of thought. What then? So I’m just going to type I guess.

My own experiences over the last two years have left me chomping at the bit to construct a narrative that would not only tell my story, but help others that might find themselves swimming in similar uncharted waters.
