1. Monotrail Mountain Masochist II Outdry Shoe Review
Overall, I highly recommend the Monotrail Mountain Masochist II Outdry shoe. Despite being used on ice, snow, and slush, these shoes have provided excellent comfort, fit, and stability while keeping my feet dry. When the weather improves, I look forward to using them for trail walking as well.
2. MDA’s Shamrocks Against Dystrophy Program 2014
Retailers all over the U.S.A. sell green Shamrocks and gold Shamrocks. The money raised through the Shamrocks Against Dystrophy Program funds research, education, summer camps through the MDA. In 2013, Shamrocks raised a record-breaking $23.3 million!
3. Snow Plowed Into Handicap Parking Violates ADA
Ice and a couple of inches of new snow covered the parking lot and sidewalk. Unfortunately, there were no handicap accessible parking spaces available near the entrance, as snow had been plowed into them in order to clear the rest of the parking lot.
4. Accessible Voting in the U.S. 2013
Polling places were not always easily accessible to those with mobility issues or other disabilities. Today, however, federal laws require that polling places be accessible. Make sure that you have registered to vote and vote in the next election.
5. Developing Resilience
Resilience has been defined by psychologists as the ability to adapt well to the difficulties in our lives including all kinds of adversity and stress. Resilience can help those of us who are coping with significant health challenges such as dealing with neuromuscular disease.
6. U.S. Legislative Update for Neuromuscular Diseases
Currently, important legislation affecting the neuromuscular disease community in the U.S. remains under consideration. As members of this community, it is important to remain informed about this legislation and to act in support of any legislation that is important to you.
7. Stress, Humor, and Neuromuscular Disease
While neuromuscular disease is not funny, many of the situations that people find themselves in are funny. Seeing the humor in our struggles provides relief from stress and improve physical and emotional health.
8. Discover Tai Chi for balance & mobility DVD Review
Discover Tai Chi for balance & mobility, a DVD exercise program led by Scott Cole, provides a 30-minute Tai Chi routine focusing on improving balance, strength, flexibility and mobility for individuals beginning a Tai Chi practice, older adults, and individuals with physical challenges.
9. Falling on Ice
As I stepped out of my car, both of feet slipped out from under me. What I had thought was a puddle turned out to be black ice. Unable to break my fall, I landed hard on my already injured left hip and on my left wrist.
10. Mitochondrial Myopathy
The mitochondrial myopathies are a group of genetic diseases that affect the mitochondria in the cells. These diseases are considered to be a neuromuscular disease, although this disease affects all the cells of the body.
