MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 2012 - Our incredible special guset is Dr. Mary Edmondson, a medical physician and a psychiatrist from Duke University, North Carolina who is also a founder of the North Carolina Center for the Care of Huntington's Disease NC-CCHD), a new and exciting organization that provides education, medical and social service care for Huntington's (HD) families in North Carolina.  And very importantly she belongs to an HD family and brings a personal perspective to care.

In her "Recognizing Trigger Behaviors" workshops she first spoke of empathy or the capacity to think and feel the inner life of those who have HD.  It was from this perspective that she talked about irritability in HD:  What it is, why it happens, how it feels for both the HD person and care-partners, how to understand it, and tips to control it.

This is going to an excellent program with great advice from a really great lady.
