October is National Rett Syndrome Awareness month. Rett Syndrome (RS) is a genetic neurological disorder. After a period of early normal development a regression leads to severe multiple handicaps. Rett Syndrome appears to be a classic example of a disorder of chromatin, the highly condensed form in which DNA is stored within the cell. Treatments vary from daily medications to physical therapy. Many focus on assisting the patient in having the best quality of life, but there is no known cure to help reverse the genetic damage.

My guest today is Debbie Barrett who has a site called "Paintracking"
Deborah Barrett, PhD, MSW, LCSW is a clinical associate professor in the School of Social Work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a psychotherapist in private practice. She has published self-help articles on fibromyalgia and other chronic pains as well as scholarly papers on health and illness, global culture, and public policy.
"I came to the topic of this book through my own struggles with pain. I developed severe pain, fairly suddenly, in my late 20s, after having enjoyed many years unencumbered by any health problems beyond an occasional cold or minor injury. Once my pain began, however, it seemed relentless. Even after I was diagnosed and tried various treatments, the pain persisted. The pain seemed to worsen out of the blue, which made my life unpredictable and frightening. But every so often I would experience a short reprieve."
Nature has all the answers would like you to join us as we discuss the many ways pain and inflammation can be removed from the body. When I hear pain I always think of that singer Kimberly Palmer Washington, she did a song "The Willow Tree" and in it she explained how any time she was in any type of pain her grandfather would tell her to go sit under the Willow tree............ and before long her pain would be gone. I wonder if she knew that the number one over the counter pain relief was derived from the Willow tree.

Authors of Hope I Don't Die Before I Get Old
Tracey and Mary Bowman were inspired to write their book,
while caring for their aging parents through chronic illness, fractured hips, surgery and death. As each other’s support network, they shared secrets and discoveries, tips and advice--amassing a wealth of wisdom on the topic.
Mary Boone Wellington, artist, inventor and businesswoman lives in The Great North Woods of NH. Discovering a world of frustration as she began to help her mother through her passage to old age, Mary Boone notes “The most surprising thing to me was how ineffective I was at making a real difference in my mother’s life. I had felt certain this “caregiving stint” was going to be a pleasant interlude of quality time spent with my beloved mom. Instead, it turned out to be incredibly stressful for us all.”
Tracey Bowman’s first exposure to caretaking was as an aide in a nursing home when she was 17. She later became a midwife completing her nursing degree at Rhode
Island College and her Master’s of Nurse-Midwifery at the Univ of Penn. She has spent 30 years taking care of mothers and babies. Currently she is a clinical teacher in the Nurse-Midwifery program at Yale Univ and maintains a private practice in southern New Hampshire. She says, “Even with all my knowledge as a nurse, I found
myself feeling overwhelmed and confused at times while helping my mother and father.
