    Question for GenXers

    What Song Is this? Bonus for knowing the name of the movie it was played in!

    Will you recognize me?

    Call my name or walk on by?

    Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling

    Down, down, down, down

    Neurofibromatosis #curenf #AskMe

    So I am terrified at the moment, I have neurofibromatosis, it's impacted my life in many ways over my 45 years of life, I remember the stares and the pain of my ankle surgeries, the tumors I have had removed, finding out that I have a brain tumor, the learning and development issues. My struggle with numbers and math, from telling time, to remembering what I was taught about math.
    But I have been having problems with smelling things that aren't really there, and not being able to smell what is.
    I am having yet another MRI to see if my tumors in my brain are growing. I had cyberknife a few years back to try and shrink them and it helped, I just don't want to go through this again, NF combined with my other health issues I am just ready to be a timelord and regenerate, or a werewolf with healing powers 😆 seriously though, if you have NF too I am sorry for what you are going through.

    #AskMe : Are there certain exercises that can help someone better manage their MS?

    You asked, an expert answered!  ​💡

    🧠​ Here’s what neurologist Dr. Elena Grebenciucova had to say:

    “Exercise is very important for all people living with multiple sclerosis. However, creating an exercise plan is best done initially with a physical therapist to ensure that the type of exercise you are doing is ultimately safe for you, in case you have some level of trouble with balance or weakness. Exercising 3-4 times a week for 30-45 weeks is ideal, but many patients new to the exercise regimen or still recovering from their recent attack need to ease into exercising very slowly and gradually increasing their time. For example, if you are very fatigued, you may find it very difficult to exercise, but if you try and set a goal of just 10-15 minutes 3-4 times a week, and then gradually over time increase it to 20-30 min and finally 30-45 min, the process may be easier.

    For those people who experience spasticity/muscle spasms, stretching before exercise is critical. Also, you have to make sure that you are not overheating during the exercise. In order to avoid overheating, make sure you hydrate plenty prior to exercise and during exercise, wear appropriate clothing, and take frequent breaks, as well exercise in a well-ventilated, cool area. If you still feel that exercising causes you more muscle spasms or heaviness in the legs or more tingling, try to reduce the intensity of the exercise and take more frequent breaks.

    Aerobic/cardio exercise is important for all patients with multiple sclerosis. Exercise helps to reduce fatigue levels, improve mood and sleep, and maintain muscle mass in those people who may have some level of weakness.”

    Is feeling shaky from within a symptom of RRMS or am I looking at something progressing?

    03:37 - Fascinating video! I like that you said you had to accept yourself. You didn't say anything about workouts worth the effort yet. Can you do a video when you talk about your workouts to help a girl out? Thanks.

    10:57 - I've been on HRT for almost a week, and my chest is growing, but there's some shrinking I'm not comfortable with. In your experience, does the D shrink or the B's? I got told that it would be the testes, but it's not the case for me, so how is it for you?

    18:36 - Are there other cities that you know of that have policies better than what got presented?

    21:27 - Does the "Corporate Advertising Policy" count as a tangible measure?

    Travelling, Being Left-Handed & More!

    🗣 - "I don’t want to get political. I don’t wake up and say, “I’m gonna get political today.” Like, that’s not my goal. But I know that if I want to have a life, I have to fight for my life. Who says that? Ask yourself! How many of you watch this right now and know that you have to fight for your life when you wake up? Your right to live, your right to employment, your right to safety, your right to dignity. How many people wake up and tell themselves those are things they need to do today. And I don’t even do that for myself. I do that for other people. I do that for the kids."
