All hands on deck! Or should I say Tongue?

Chapter 20

All Hands on Deck, or should I say Tongue! 2003

          The call came in – time to restart and reignite the research.

I still had my studies in college to think about. By this time I had plans to

transfer to the Rehabilitation Psychology program at UW-Madison but the break between

finishing MATC and starting UW-Madison gave me time to connect with the research in a

deeper way.


A lot of preparation had gone into this next phase, the office, the testing area, the

protocols, everything needed to move along. My role then as Subject Zero was to use the

TDU daily twice daily to assess changes in the residual times discovered earlier.

I was asked to log my experiences to keep track of how I felt prior to my use,

during, and after – how long any residual lasted and the changes I felt. Prior to writing

down my experiences, I had shared what was happening to me by talking to Yuri and

Mitch. The more we talked the more my input helped paved the way. Here’s where I really

began to feel like a researcher, this is when I became Subject Zero, Co-investigator.


This is where the change in my life really started.

About Cheryl Schiltz Photography

Thank you for visiting, I hope you are enjoying my photography. I've happily been a photographer for over 25 years making it a passion of mine. My work has been inspired by places near and far, those I never thought I'd visit and by the work of others I so very much respect from whom I've learned so much. The vibrant colors of the outdoors take me home and when they stand still just long enough for me to admire and capture them in landscapes, forests, flowers, all things our beautiful world holds, I find myself complete. I hope you enjoy my work and give my page a like. I'd love to see you here.
