|There are many reasons for
this page. While
much information on Muscular Dystrophy on the Internet and various
places. I wanted to provide a place where much of that information
be located easily.
Let me make it perfectly
clear that I
am neither a doctor or any other type of health care professional.
My only knowledge comes from the fact that I have a form of MD called
Ataxia. I have spent some time looking for information and possible
which I will share with anyone here.
I invite anyone to share
any knowledge they
may have with
visitors to this site. Simply
If you read as much as I
have from the
field you tend to lose hope of a treatment or cure.
My feelings are do as much as you can. I never accept
what the doctors tell me and I do things they say I can't do. My
younger brother never let his condition stop him as long as he could
keep going he did and attempted things even I didn't consider.
Do you have a poem or
I'm afraid there was no way to make this short as there
is lots of information here. Some may apply to many people and some
only to me. I have to make another point here...I use homeopathic
remedies, some people have a very difficult time accepting
that and if you are one of the people are unwilling to consider them I
would suggest that you not even read any further.
asked the homeopath one
is helping me what advice I could give people with one of the forms of
MD? His answer was "Get
to a good
as soon as possible"
