SORT BY Relevancy
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.
Meet Alicia Bryant, a native of Kinston North Carolina. She is graduate of Fayetteville State University and holds a BA in Political Science. She continued her education at Lenoir Community College to obtain her Cosmetology License, shortly after opening her own Salon.
She and her husband have a beautiful 8 year old daughter, Jailynn Amani. When Jailynn was 2 she was diagnosed with a condition called Rett Syndrome. Alicia and her husband had no idea what this condition was, however in the process of becoming educated and learning more about the condition, they started a foundation in hopes of raising awareness in the community about the condition. Thanks to all the love and support from her family, Jailynn has beat all odds.
"We thank God for his grace and mercy." ~ Alicia Bryant

Tonight at 10pm cst, we of course will be discussing where the mentality of church terrorist ?#Roof? came from. We will play Dr Joy De Gruy's famous 2008 lecture on Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome because of how much #Roof and him having so called black friends has brought an absolute spotlight on the hidden racism engrained in the minds. Dr. De Gruy talks on the things no one wants to talk about because we're being told to move on, unite and "rise above". Meanwhile, people never get corrected in their racist subconscious minds. Go to Joydegruy.com for more info about her and pick up her book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing.
People always want to believe that blacks whine over slavery and believe slavery is merely in the past. They have not studied to see just how much slavery still affects the minds of whites and blacks today. Change starts within renewing the subconscious mind. Understanding and receiving this lecture we present tonight is an example of beginning that renewal process. You will greatly benefit by hearing this in its entirety.
What causes so-called black Christians to love a deity who doesn't keep "his" promises to "his" followers? Why do they love their oppressor in spite of the harsh treatment that riddles the so-called black community? Join formerly licensed, national minister Empress T to discuss if and how Christians may be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.
Empress T is a recovering Christian who is 41 months clean after 44 years of indoctrination, and celebrates her sobriety date on Dec. 27th. She has devoted much of her time to sharing what she has learned about the mental effects of Christianity in the Black Family. She is a former National licensed Minister under one of the largest churches in the U.S, a former Armour Bearer to 2 pastors and a bishop, and a former Sunday School and bible teacher.
Empress T is also entering her second year (in June) as a student at the University of Metaphysics in Arizona and is obtaining a degree in Transpersonal Psychology.

Impostor syndrome is the feeling that you’re a fraud—that you’re somehow less qualified, less deserving of success. There is the fear that you’ll be “found out," which may lead you to attempt to work longer and harder than others. This can be a source of resentment, exhaustion, and a sense of impending doom. While Impostor Syndrome is not solely the domain of alcoholics, many of us report deep attachments to perfectionism and, it's cousin, Impostor Syndrome. Many of us drank over our feelings of resentment and fear arising from the core belief that we were frauds. Now that we are sober, we can bring these fears into the light of truth. When we think, "I'm a fraud," instead of drinking, we ask, "Is that true?" We connect with our recovery communities and see the truth of our own self-worth reflected back at us in the faces of our sober friends. We learn to discard these old patterns of thinking and replace them with healthier, more balanced ones. In recovery, we find freedom from the tyranny of Impostor Syndrome.
