    No one paid enough attention to them as children apparently.

    I don’t understand. This helps how exactly?

    I’m doing an exercise program now. I was on a treadmill for about 20 minutes today. (3wks ago, I couldn’t even do 3minutes. yay for exercise!). I had to be really careful with the treadmill. My shoulders got sore because I have to hold onto the treadmill to keep from falling. At about the 15min mark, I almost tripped because my right leg got a weird twitch in it in mid step. Never had that before.

    I did notice that when I exercise, it seems to help my proprioception a tiny bit. I think it’s because I’d been sitting for months, and blood flow in my legs was getting affected, which makes the numbness worse.

    Wish my proprioception wasn’t all screwy. I miss roller skating. Won’t be doing that again, but if I can get my endurance back up, maybe I can go grocery shopping without using the electric scooters. I always feel like I need to leave those for the people who are worse than I am to use.

    That saying “use it, or lose it”…that’s totally true! Anyone here with health issues that make you want to sit and watch tv. Get up while you can, and go take a walk!

    There’s a name for what happens when the heat affects the nerves. It’s called “Uhthoff’s Phenomenon”. When you get overheated, it either stops, or slows down the nerve conduction.

    What I would worry about this girl doing with the running, especially with her proprioception basically being turned off, is it would be really really easy for her to sprain or break an ankle. I’ve almost done it myself, just from trying to stand up from sitting, or walking across the room.

    Hope she gets to keep running. MS really sucks. And for her to get it so young. (she probably has “pediatric MS”). I didn’t get mine till my late 30s. (I’m 45 now). I only started having problems walking in the last 11 months. And I probably wouldn’t be having that problem if I hadn’t hurt my shoulder, and was forced to basically sit still for several months because of the pain.

    I have MS.

    My hands and legs have been varying degrees of numb for the last couple of years. I can still walk, but I have to use a walker. (I hurt my shoulder last year. Had to sit for months because of pain that even narcotics wouldn’t touch, got deconditioned. Trying to get back into shape so I can walk w/o the walker)

    I can confirm that it is the weirdest sensation. To have your legs be numb, and heat making things worse. It’s worse than sitting too long and having a leg fall “asleep”. Because it never goes away.

    Cold can cause problems too. Causes me pain, and I don’t have to get all that cold for that to happen.

    She should keep running for as long as she can. I can tell you from personal experience, if you don’t exercise, bad things happen. (wish I hadn’t hurt my shoulder).

    I’d like to know if she has problems with her proprioception (the ability to know where your extremities are). My proprioception is wonky. I don’t always know where my feet are. (exercise helps that)

    The story I read earlier said the stepfather’s last name was Head. Maybe I’m remembering wrong?

    The stepfather was wrong for calling for them to burn Ferguson. I think there’s at least 25 people who would be well within their rights to sue the riot/arson instigator for the damages. They’ll never get money out of him if they win tho.

    Brown Sr. was the one who was calling for nonviolence.

    It was Jr’s stepfather that was inciting riots and arson.

    He thinks he’s above the law, and can do whatever he wants. But anyone else trying what he does is doing something wrong.

    Do as I say, not as I do. What works for me is not for thee.

    She didn’t disrespect the office of the president. 0bama is doing a good job of that himself already. He doesn’t need any help disrespecting it.

    0bama won’t be happy until he turns the United States into Central America.

    I’m pretty sure there’s a 100% chance of rioting, raping, looting, and pillaging no matter what happens to Officer Wilson.

    If I lived in that area, I’d have moved to another state by now.

    The nurses that got sick, that wasn’t their fault at all. I’m pretty sure that we can blame the guy who pretty much lied to get into the country when he knew he’d been exposed to ebola. It was his fault, AND the CDC, along with Obama’s administration that we can blame for the nurses getting sick. The criminal mishandling of just about everything that Obama touches is starting to get even scarier. Hope the next guy/girl to sit at the Resolute desk is smarter, and can handle the job.

    I wish we’d stop importing the ebola patients. Especially to my hometown.

    I know someone who is on one of the teams of personnel that takes care of the ebola patients. So far, the person I know hasn’t had to report to work in that part of the hospital. I’m kind of in fear that they’ll have to work there. I don’t want the chance that it’ll get spread to my family if the person I know accidentally gets infected and then comes over here to visit.

    Wish that they’d just set up a quarantine center IN the countries that are having the epidemics. Why are we bringing them here? I don’t understand why Obama is so insistent that a quarantine won’t work. That’s how doctors have contained epidemics for hundreds of years.

    Are you having problems dealing with your own latent homosexuality? You seem to think it’s supposed to be an insult to call people that. Just embrace it. There’s nothing wrong with it. You might have a problem attracting a boyfriend however because you’re a jerk.
    Nice to know that at least two dozen nice Blazers down voted you in defense of my grandfather. (I’m sure this comment back you you won’t last long after the mods see it)

    My grandfather was a gandy dancer. I was told he was the guy swinging the sledgehammer. Worked his way as a gandy dancer from Texas up to Omaha in the late 1930s. Where he became a nurse. Never got to meet him, wish I had.

    So they intentionally wrote the law in such a murky way that the American voters that they think are so stupid would accept it.

    Isn’t that fraud?

    Wouldn’t that give us a great excuse to repeal the law?

    Oh, and fire, and impeach/criminally prosecute the people who were committing fraud against the American people.

    There’s a really good reason to hold onto cars that have a combustion engine, and that have NO COMPUTERIZED/electronic parts inside it. Ever hear of an electromagnetic pulse? Nuclear weapons emit EMPs, EMPs destroy electronic equipment.

    I’m not sure if a non-nuclear EMP emitter is a real thing, or something from a science fiction show, but people might want to hold onto their combustion engines…

    Maybe he was mad because there wasn’t a Cornhuskers game over the weekend? Did some self mutilation?

    Red is such a heartwarming color.
    I don’t think the liberals realized just how much of the rest of the country is conservative.

    And tired of the administrations crap.
