Hypno Steve's Story

My name is Steven Jett. I am a Viet Nam vet. Wounded twice in Viet Nam, possible source of infection. However, I was also an iv drug user for a few years. Now I am well into my 10th year of being clean and sober, and most of 20 yrs, a few relapses along the way.

I am 53 yrs old and just started treatment (Pegusus w/ Riboveren) on 11-27-2002. I had a liver biopsy and was diagnosed stage three, had a cat scan of my liver and was told of shrapnel (metal from a RPG rocket) in my liver. I think that bothered me more emotionally than physically.

So far I'm mostly side effect free, with the exception of being a little tired and irratable. Perhaps just a little bit of insomnia, but not to bad. I believe part of the reason for the mildness of the side effects is due to having worked out and having eaten right for the most part for the last several years. Mostly though and without hesitation I say it's a direct result of a power greater than myself. I do the footwork and leave the results up to God.

I am at this time taking care of my mother. Whom is 80 yrs old and is living with end stage renal failure. I believe this helps me from thinking too much about myself. Ten years ago my last drink and drug was an overdose of morphine and vodka. I was dead on arrival at the UCD med center in Sacramento California, died twice more in that experience and was in a coma for thirteen days. It was interesting to me, a person who had been suicidal most of his life (from 15 till about ten years ago) That now I am no longer suicidal or afraid to die, but have a strong will to live and be of service to others. In that near death experience(a long story) I will not go into here except to say "that death does not work as a geographic, that you take yourself with you. So that if you are to live, one must do so without fear and to the fullest.

The Earth school can be quite a trial and being in a bag of water an ultimate challenge! To gain a new attitude, a change of perception can be the greatest reward of all. When I put the syringe into my thigh or the Ribovarrin in my mouth. I just ask GOD to take this medicine and turn it into light and direct it to do what is according to your will. Like I said so far so good.

With Love and respect for your journey Steven Jett

I would love to hear from you E-mail jhypnosteve@aol.com
