Ten Helpful Hints...

| More
Kimberly Larochelle

I have a tattered little piece of paper that decorates my fridge, and it's nothing fancy...really quite worn...but on it is written some of the best advice that I have ever given myself.  It is called "10 Helpful Hints".  The reason I keep it on my "fridge" is so that I may FOLLOW this advice that I have given to myself....And...I reminded everyday, several times a day, every time I open the fridge..."Follow Your Own Advice"...

It seems that the closer I follow these 10 little tips...Life flows a little easier, and the world seems a little brighter.  The more  I read them and keep these tips formost in my mind...I seem to be able to muster up more Hope in my heart, along with Courage and Strength. 

I have found that in our Autism Spectrum Community, the struggle can be quite hard, and it can take a toll, physically, mentally, and emotionally.  If we can muster up though, and be strong enough one day, while our fellow may be lacking on that very same day...we can pass along a "shoulder to lean on"...and maybe someone will provide a "shoulder" for us, on another day...when we may be stumbling...   The point is, we are all on the same "crooked road"...and so just as I have been upbuilt by this tattered little slip of paper...I will pass it along...in the hopes that it may give someone else a boost.

 Together...Let's move ahead...to "Accomplishment"....

  1. Never give up on a cure.
  2. Read, read, and read some more everything on the subject…then keep what’s good, and discard what’s not…and keep a “not sure” file as well.
  3. Listen to your “Gut”…there is no one on this earth that loves this child as you do…or that knows this child better that you do…so “Arm” yourself with your own wisdom of your child, and become his or her best Advocate.
  4. If a therapist, doctor, teacher, ect…does not connect with your child…Find someone that does.
  5. If a therapy, or diet is not having successful results…stop…and find something that will bring success.
  6. Ask questions…lots of questions…and write them down, so that you can carry them with you when you go to your child’s doctors, therapist, ect…and if your questions are met with distain, sarcasm, or with a patronizing response…Find someone that will answer your questions with respect and dignity.
  7. When you feel like the world is caving in on you…take a Bubble Bath, a Long Walk…or anything to help you re-group to face the challenge again.
  8. Try to stay healthy yourself…this is hard as you may feel selfish about giving yourself any attention…so…just remember who you need to be healthy for…Your child... and they are depending on you…You cannot assist them very well if you get sick…
  9. Join a Support Group…and not just any support group.  Make sure that you will be able to gather “purposeful” support from this group…and that it truly satisfies your need of support in both a practical, and in an emotional sense.  Ask yourself, “What was I able to take away from this meeting?”  Any tips or information, and maybe even play dates for my child, ect…not just a “Gripe Session”.
  10. Do not feel guilty that your child is in this situation, and do not plague yourself with the “What if’s” or the “If only I knew then what I know now”…and Do not look back with regret…just keep moving forward to Accomplishment!

    'Nightmare' infection found in US for first timeA superbug resistant to all known medications has been found in the United States for the first time, raising new concern about the dwindling effectiveness of antibiotics, the top US public health official said on Thursday.

  • AstraZeneca potassium drug delayed by manufacturing snag 27 May 2016 | 3:55 am

    The logo of AstraZeneca is seen on medication packages in a pharmacy in LondonAstraZeneca said on Friday U.S. regulators would not approve its new drug for high potassium levels at present due to a manufacturing issue, dealing a blow to a product acquired when it bought ZS Pharma for $2.7 billion last year. Analysts said the drug's launch would now likely be delayed until 2017 after the British drugmaker said the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had issued a so-called complete response letter (CRL) for ZS-9, or sodium zirconium cyclosilicate. "The CRL refers to observations arising from a pre-approval manufacturing inspection," AstraZeneca said.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron talks with World Bank President Jim Yong Kim as the attend a family picture during the last day of the Group of Seven (G7) summit meetings in Ise Shima, JapanBy Kylie MacLellan and Ben Hirschler ISE-SHIMA, Japan/LONDON (Reuters) - Britain told the G7 industrial powers on Friday to do more to fight killer superbugs as the United States reported the first case in the country of a patient with bacteria resistant to a last-resort antibiotic. U.S. scientists said the infection in a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman "heralds the emergence of truly pan-drug resistant bacteria" because it could not be controlled even by colistin, an antibiotic reserved for "nightmare" bugs. In Japan, British Prime Minister David Cameron said leading countries needed to tackle resistance by reducing the use of antibiotics and rewarding drug companies for developing new medicines.

    Roche tablets are seen positioned in front of a displayed Roche logo in this photo illustrationRoche got a big boost on Friday when a clinical trial testing its new blood cancer drug Gazyva proved successful, lifting prospects for a new medicine that will be pivotal as the Swiss company fights the threat of biosimilar competition. Roche said Gazyva proved significantly better than its older drug Rituxan at delaying the progression of disease in people with previously untreated follicular lymphoma. Clinical trials with the new drug are important in deciding how well the Swiss drugmaker is placed to fend off cheaper competition from so-called biosimilar copies of Rituxan, which are likely to hit the market in the next couple of years.

  • Valeant rejected joint takeover bid from Takeda, TPG in spring: source 26 May 2016 | 10:32 pm

Takeda and private equity firm TPG were ready to offer a substantial premium to Valeant, whose stock had fallen about 65 percent this year up to the close of trade on April 22 as the drugmaker was not just seeking a new head but was also hit by an accounting scandal, the source added.
