ByKate Johnson Jan. 30, 2019 The doctor ordered a “push” on my sedative, and I succumbed to the sweet blackness. But then something went wrong, and I was awake too soon, flailing and crying, the medical team scrambling to maneuver the tube that had been placed down my throat in what should have been a straightforward gastroscopy. I put up a violent struggle on the table: gagging and choking, trying to scream, fighting to pull the medical device out of my esophagus. “Hold her arms!” I heard someone yell. I felt hot tears, and pure terror … and then more blackness. This was the third time I had woken up under the twilight anesthesia known as “conscious … [Read more...] about Awake on the Table

We asked the experts and checked the journals for the most useful tips you can take to heart. BySusan Shain Dec. 31, 2018 It’s the shiniest time of year: that hopeful period when we imagine how remarkable — how fit and kind, how fiscally responsible — our future selves could be. And while you may think “new year, new you” is nothing more than a cringey, magazine-cover trope, research supports its legitimacy. “It’s not like there’s something magical about Dec. 31,” explained Charles Duhigg, the author of “The Power of Habit.” “What is magical is our mind’s capacity to … [Read more...] about How to Crush Your Habits in the New Year with the Help of Science
Laura Chrzanowski sat next to her daughter’s bed at Glendale Uptown House in the city’s Rhawnhurst neighborhood on Monday wearing a black sweatshirt emblazoned with the phrase “Pray for Laura.” The message was about her 25-year-old daughter, Laura Brooks, but it just as well could have been for them both. Fourteen months ago, Brooks was crossing the street in front of her family’s home on Richmond Street in Bridesburg when she was struck by a car. She was knocked out of her shoes. Her injuries ranged from brain swelling and multiple skull fractures to shattered teeth, collapsed lungs and broken legs. Just minutes after the accident, Chrzanowski arrived home to see one of her daughter’s white sneakers near a puddle of blood in the street about three or four rowhomes away from the point of impact. “She looked like a broken action figure,” the mother recalled. Things were beyond very bad. At the time, her loved ones didn’t … [Read more...] about The woman who ‘looked like a broken action figure’ continues healing after near-death accident
The Cancer Moonshot. It’s a topic that I’ve been meaning to address ever since President Barack Obama announced it in his State of the Union address this year and tasked Vice President Joe Biden to head up the initiative. Biden, you’ll recall, lost his son to a brain tumor . Yet here it is, eight months later, and somehow I still haven’t gotten around to it. The goal of the initiative is to “eliminate cancer as we know it,” and to that end, with $195 million invested immediately in new cancer activities at the National Institutes of Health and $755 million proposed for FY 2017. My first thought at the time was that that wasn’t nearly enough money to achieve the ambitious goals set out by the President. That has now become particularly clear now that a week and a half ago the National Cancer Institute released the report from the initiative’s blue ribbon panel suggesting ten ways to speed up progress against cancer. Initial thoughts on the … [Read more...] about Can the Cancer Moonshot do what its advocates promise?

Yet, something is missing, and it’s more obvious than a trumpeting elephant in a small room full of people. Where are all the autistic senior citizens? Does the government ship them all off to some special island where it’s kept hush-hush and they receive all the special treatment they need? (Of course not…) Today’s medical “establishment” claims that most … [Read more...] about If autism is hereditary, then where are all the retirement homes full of autistic people?
