With Featured Guest: Shandra Lumsden-Umazar, Proud parent of a college graduate with Down Syndrome
"It's hard to get motivated when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. That was how I felt when my daughter was born 30+ years ago. . Yes, I focused on things that she could do, but I also mixed them up with all the things that she couldn't do at that moment and all the things she wouldn't be able to do in the future such as having friends, dating and going to the prom, graduating and going to college."
Join us as Shandra shares parts of her journey, and principles of successfully parenting a child with "differ-abilities" in the areas of social skills, family integration, and education.

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

"Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia: removing obstacles to heal and finding the root cause to heal"
Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia symptoms are becoming more and more evident in the U.S. Dr. Hayman will discuss how many obstacles to heal in our daily life may be exacerbating these symptoms. She will give a checklist of issues that can be addressed in your home and lifestyle that could be an obstacle to heal.
Katie is the owner and inventor of the Handana® wrist sweatband, and also a survivor of the Stevens-Johnson Syndrome- an inflammatory disorder that can be triggered by certain prescription medication. Inflammation of the skin can become so harmful that a person with SJS can actually develop 3rd degree burns externally while causing internal damage as well. In fact, Katie’s experience was so critical that she spent approximately 3 weeks in the Burn Unit at a hospital from her reaction.
Well, thankfully Katie recovered from her reaction and began to pursue an idea for a wristband that would benefit those with SJS as well as many athletes. Being a marathon runner herself, Katie was always practicing and training for various marathons. While running, her eyes were constantly irritated from the burning sensation whenever sweat would drip into her eyes. For a fairly common occurrence, Katie was determined to find a better solution to help create something better than your typical cotton sweatband.
Today we will be speaking with Katie about her motivation behind the Handana® and how she was able to pursue her idea, and turn it into a successful reality. We hope that this gives fellow nurses advice for pursuing any inventions or ideas that they may have.

War and the Obama derangement syndrome
September 27th, 2014
To be clear, I completely disagree with President Obama going to war with ISIS / ISIL. In fact I believe we have been conned into war and I have written several blog posts about that (here,here,here,here).
Everyone who disagree with President Obama’s action should speak out against it and try to force our politicians to do what is right. Just like many of us spoke out against President Bush’s illegal war in Iraq, we must speak out against this unnecessary war.
That said, America is one nation. Most on the Right, Left, and Middle gave President Bush the legitimacy the world needed to see even in disagreement. Unfortunately, President Obama is unable to get this legitimacy from the other side.
What is ironic is that the President has acquiesced to the military industrial complex. The President has acquiesced to the neocons. The President has acquiesced to the Republicans. So why can he not get the needed support overtly? This is the Obama derangement syndrome. It throws rational thought out the door. GOP Congressman Doug Lamborn’s (R-CO) attack on the President is the latest case.
What are your thoughts? Let’s talk. I will also be following our hash-tag #PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter.
