Any other Cyborgs out there?
    #11310189 - 10/24/09 06:58 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)


Although I have a heart made of muscle, it does nothing without a computer. 

I get a new "heart" in 2 years

Does passive external optical enhancement count towards cyborgization?

Apart from my glasses I'm pretty much 100% human. :geordinod:

I used to be part silicon but I had lasik surgery done yesterday, so now I'm no longer a cyborg.

OP, does that pacemaker thing make you talk in a strange way?

It completly changed my life, so I guess it does make me talk weirdly.

Something strange, in the neighborhood

Can you describe your experience for us?

Do you stretch out your vowels when you speak or something to that effect?

no nothing like that, I just talk like Im on speed or some other upper

people tend to think Im tweaking, even though I couldnt ever do that because of my condition

My experiance? with getting it implanted in me?

I was awake when they put it in but couldnt feel a thing. Fentanyll FTW

Recovery took about 4 months, but that's including the chest-cracking open heart part as well as the pacemaker

For the first couple years, I felt nearly invincible

Like I figured that if I kept getting pacemaker replacements, I would never die or at least live to be 150.

Then some serious depression took hold that lasted maybe 4 months because I realised that if I cant afford a replacement, I will die when Im 25. So I just lay in bed for a week at the peak of the depression.

I took celexa for a few months for that feeling but stopped taking them w/ out my doctors consent, you arent supposd to stop an SSRI regimine cold turkey
but I did
I went thru crazy withdrawls for 2 weeks that were actually pleasent, tingly feelings, brain zaps, and euphoria.

My outlook on life totally pulled a 180 and Im almost always ecstatic about everything everyday.

I had to tell myself that feeling sorry for myself was a total waste of time. The fact that I still might die at 25 didnt bother me anymore because I knew I could still make the most of the rest of my life, and Ive been in a positive mood ever since.

Im more careful in my daily activities though
Like I cant go through a metal detector, or ride a motorcycle, or play with magnets anymore.

But the biggest aspect that contributes to my happines is the fact that I can actually do insane amounts of physical activities now

before my surgery, I could sprint maybe 30 feet and have to sit still for ten minutes afterwards to catch my breath and let my heart slow down. Now I can run a mile in 10 minutes. It used to take me over a half hour to go 1 mile before we knew what was wrong with me.
My parents and friends and even PE coaches always told me that I was being lazy and needed to suck it up and hustle.

Then I went to the doctors for a routine checkup
The hearteat check lasted WAY longer than usual and my doc was going, "hmmmmmm" which you know is a bad sign.
He told me what the problem was and what need to be done if I didnt want to drop dead from the slightest bit of physical stress, he compared me to althletes that collapse and die out of nowhere during a game. Same exact condition, thank goodness I was never into team sports

The "I told you so" factor was awesome for a few months
"Hey remember when you told me to hurry up and I didnt because I said my chest hurt and then you told me I wasnt giving 100%?"
"Yeah I guess so."
"Well HAHA!! How would you have felt if I died under your supervision?"


Now I walk an average of 15 miles a day, or about 90 miles a week
Huge confidence boost
Im actually no longer skinny and weak
I never thought I could be so fit, aside from the whole heart thing

My dad has a DBS (Deep Brain Stimulator) for his Parkinsons... he is quite cybernetic at this point. :smile:

The DBS is very interesting...can he trigger himself some happy feelings on that thing?

Nope... just keeps his tremor at bay, and only on the opposite half of his body. The brain is wacky like that. :smile:

He can go back in and get the other side done, and have 2 implants!

Technology is cool. Oh, and he was AWAKE while they worked on his brain. He has to respond to questions and stuff as they zero in the probe.

yeah, I knew all that stuff already. I was just interested in seeing if one of the parts they were stimulating happened to be a "pleasure" section, especially considering where they're drilling at (mostly older
prehuman limbal "secondary" brain tissue, where the brain controls human/animal emotions and various unconscious breathing functions).

I would hope he'd be awake during the surgery of the brain;
the brain has no native nerves and does not feel pain itself.
(Anesthesia helps, of course.)
