Dallas Med Conference: Encouraging!

Friday, July 12th, 2013 | Faith, Inflammatory Myopathy, Types of Metals | No Comments

It was indeed an incredible honor to be invited as a guest speaker for a medical conference, In sharing the clinical outcomes and progress of Patricia’s medical mystery to medical breakthrough with physicians and clinicians, I was amazed at their eagerness to learn more to help their patients, if similar symptoms prevailed.

I felt right at home speaking with medical practitioners and guests wanting to know more information. Health care communications has always been my passion and a large part of my professional experience as a medical marketing manager for many years was working with all levels of the medical community.

Dallas was an exciting time for me on a very personal level. I really enjoyed my time in Texas!

The overwhelming reception from those attending was far greater than I anticipated. Metal allergies are real, and the practitioners were eager to learn more details about my mother’s case specifics.

.

Through this web site and other venues, patients and caregivers have shared repeatedly their efforts in seeking help in locating a physician that will: 1) listen to their symptoms 2) believe metal allergies are real and possibly could be the patient’s core health problem; and 3) work with the patient and order an allergy test (patch or blood).

Don’t give up hope! I met some wonderful physicians that are listening and supportive of their patients and the possibilities of metal allergies being the core health problem.

Muscle Weakness Strengthens Daughter’s Commitment

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 | Faith, Health Care In General | No Comments

 

Trish and ChrisWhen I resigned from my full time job, the economy had not evolved into hard times. Now that my mother is getting better she has often asked me, “Do you ever regret giving up your life and work to help me?”

There is never any hesitation in my heart or mind when I reach out to hug and remind her that my current job is be with her. The other part of my job is to help others so no one else has to suffer or struggle as I watched her. That’s why I wrote Steel Standing.

It is hard to grasp that I actually wrote a book during the mysterious medical journey. the amount of care my mother needed was almost 24/7, which is far greater than just a full time job. To figure out what was wrong with my mother AND to know she is better plus writing her story book, really does amazes me.

Although, I have volunteered my time to primarily become my mother’s caregiver, the pay is better than I could imagine!

To be able to hug her is just indescribable. She’s alive! She’s not in an assisted living facility or nursing home where she was bound before she regained her health!

I cherish each day. I thank God for each day knowing our faith was the very foundation that keep us on a level playing field. We had an opportunity to do more, or not. We chose to do more and share the information.

The most difficult task has been trying to tell the world what’s happened and with little attention from the media. If the world never learns what we experienced, I still have my mother to hug.

She continues to have the strongest “can do” attitude, even in her weakest times. She’s kept me going! What a rewarding job helping someone else while they teach you how to live, love and listen! What a mother! What a lady! What a great gift!

What more is there in life than showing those you love tremendous support.  Remind them that they’re not alone!

When it’s all said and done, caregiving should happen before it’s needed.

That’s my spill for now.

Chris
