I’d like to think of them as human

So I have to admit something… I have an addiction. If the first step to the road of recovery is admitting you have a problem, consider this my first step. Here is the kicker though… my addiction is a certain game… called… Candy Crush… I know I know, it’s not a real addiction, and it isn’t one I’m willing to give up just yet, but hear me out… it’s a game sensation. If you haven’t tried it yet, here is your warning, it is ADDICTING. Let me go on to the main reason of this blog post: the game makers.

Now the game is fun, its addicting, but those game makers, I’m sure if they are human and have any soul at all, (and if they had the ability to watch me play) they would get so frustrated with me, screaming at me, “just pass the level, pass it, here… here’s an easy start, now don’t screw it up… why did you have to go and screw it up… I just told you not to!” well… that’s what they would do if they were human, and I would like to think they are… but if you have played the game… you may come to the same conclusion as me… the game makers are NOT human. And if they are, they have no soul, they like to see pain, they like to torture us into thinking we can pass a level… then throw it in our face we were one “ingredient” or “Jelly” short of passing…

I can picture them (humor me now…) being by the computer, in their metal shells, laughing manically, sounding much like a dalek, or… come to think of it, speech through a Cochlear Implant… watching and gaining strength as they see the frustration they are causing us, enjoying the torture they put us through.

And what’s the point of the game anyways? I haven’t really come to know that yet, is there actually an end in sight? If so, what lays at the end of this candy land like maze we are traveling through? Is there a pot of gold at the end of the road? Or do we simply get to gloat that we spent hours, days, weeks, months playing this game with no end in sight, with no understanding as to what our eventual goal was? That we defeated “jellies” and mutated chocolate, set free caged candies, blew up bricks? To this… I’m not sure… but hopefully the adventure is worth it, maybe, if and when the time comes I make it to the end of the candy coated path I will know if the game makers are human, or maybe… maybe, if your mind is as weird as mine, they are waiting for the whole world to be playing this game, letting our defenses down, and they will invade the earth in their multicolored spaceships, throwing candy bombs down upon the earth, seeing how we like the real version of their game… who knows… maybe we won’t even notice as we get blown into bits, maybe we will think it’s the next upgrade in technology. Simulated reality of the game we are playing, a game created by creatures that may look something like this…

Will the doctor come and save us?

Speaking of doctors! I realized I haven’t updated on my last post. I have answers, I do indeed have Indiopathic Intercranial Hypertension, and have been started on Diamox, a medication that lowers the production of Cerebral Spinal Fluid, because apparently my body is an over achiever in that aspect. I’m feeling better, I have had a few headaches, and have started seeing light through the darkness in my right eye!! I’m hoping this is a good sign that my vision will return to normal soon, oh right eye vision… how I have missed you. I have had a few headaches since the spinal tap and taking the Diamox… but I’m not really sure if they are IIH headaches or normal headaches, I think that will take time for me to figure out which is which and how to tell the difference. I have a follow up Tuesday Morning with the doctor, I also have a MAPping session that day, so I wonder how much homework I will be able to finish… oh back on track…

So, if you have played the game, would you like to think of game makers for candy crush as human (I would like to… but I’m not entirely convinced)? Or do you feel as if they have created a system where they thrive off the torture they have created? Patiently waiting to take over the world?

  1. If you finish the level, Willy Wonka will come out and hand you the keys to the factory.

    Glad to hear you’re making headway (pun intended) on the headaches!

  2. I’m so glad you found an answer. IIH, can be a bitch. I have been thinking of you a lot, but for some reason, wordpress decided to stop sending me your blog updates and I got lost.
    So I’m so glad you came by and commented on my blog!! Wonderful to hear from you!

    One way you might be able to tell if you are having a pressure headache. Lie down, or stand up…the opposite of what you are doing, if your headache gets better pretty fast, it’s usually pressure. If it’s high, standing should help, if it’s low lying down should help…..or if it’s high lying down will feel horrible.

    You mentioned your tinnitus went crazy when you got your meds off track…..that is a big sign to me that it’s probably time to take a diamox. No one has ever told me this, but I’ve noticed it. That afternoon pill I’m supposed to take…that I often forget…I will get a roaring in my ears and it tells me that I forgot and to take it NOW! It’s amazing that it sure does work.

    Please keep me up to date on the IIH.

    (I try to stay away from addictive games, I know I have an addictive personality and will drive everyone crazy if I get started. : ) But if the doctor would come and save me….that would be worth it.)

    BTW…..Loving the CI decorations! I just started the process of getting my second one….hopefully it will be in less than 2 months!!
