am sending this personal note to multiple receivers who are close
to The Iconoclast. As an update on my health, doctors
are trying to locate blood pressure lowering medications that
I can tolerate. Life has been miserable as I have very low tolerance
to most side effects.
typing is terrible and I cannot concentrate on things too long
without a big spike in bp. Doctors have rated my survival chances
at about 20 percent and told me they can't believe I am not already
dead (at least three strokes and 70 TIA's* later). So, for me,
it has been touch-and-go, day by day. Doctors say that it is strange
that my heart is in such great shape, but the tiny arteries throughout
my brain are trying to close up and my carotids (in four day's
time) went from 30 percent blockage (only one of them) to 80 percent
(while in the hospital). I am considering biofeedback and also
saw a video one of you sent to me about diet, which I am trying
to adhere to.
is a very good chance that some party or group has tried to do
me in. I have made some very solid enemies over the years not
only by what The Iconoclast has published from various
writers, but due to my own investigations where I have infiltrated
big corporations, the military, the government, and others, which
I have a unique ability to do. In fact, I was working on three
of these investigations when this happened and I might have overstepped
on one of them just before my strokes occurred. There were four
hospital incidents that consisted of acts of sheer multiple stupidity
that would have cost me my life had I not interfered, unless these
were on purpose, plus lots more. I get very tired of people telling
me it was "just a coincidence" this or that happened
to me, from the rubber stamp that melted in my desk (in a drawer
six inches from my "mouse" hand) on the day of the first
stroke, to multiple misdiagnoses, to weird changes in hospital
protocol. Two nights in one hospital were spent with me sleeping
on the concrete floor in a corner, not in the bed (my choice,
for sake of survival), with gadgets hooked all over me.
I cannot edit or format the usual bulk of items being sent to
The Iconoclast, so it is on virtual hold, but please
continue to send material as you have in the past in the event
my condition improves. Because of the types of material we publish,
I have to be able to participate, which, physically, I cannot
currently do. Maybe I will know where we are headed for sure in
a couple of weeks.
family and I are thankful for your prayers and kind thoughts.
Please be patient and bear with me as I try to improve. I do apologize
for not living up to my responsibilities right now — I feel
like I am letting everyone down. Please forgive me. — Leon
* A transient
ischemic attack (TIA) is an episode in which a person has stroke-like
symptoms for less than 24 hours, usually less than 1-2 hours.
