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
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.
