Coping with Chronic Neuropathy…
a real life story full of information, hope, humor and challenge. The 2014 revision of this production is introduced by Dominick Spatafora (Neuropathy Patient) Founder and President of the Neuropathy Action Foundation in Los Angeles, California. The seminar is endorsed and recommend by Alan Berger MD FAAN, Professor and Chairman, Dept. of Neurology, UF Health@Jacksonville; by Thomas Brannagan MD FAAN, Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurology, Columbia University, NYC; and by practicing Neuromuscular Neurologist Waden Emery MD FAAN of Lighthouse Point, FL. You will not only learn what Peripheral Neuropathy is, but you will also learn what it is not. This is important if you are to avoid lots of snake oil exaggerated promises and claims of magic cures.
Surviving beyond the challenges of the disease is the theme throughout, with insights shared on how to use anger as power, while facing the question of “why me”, yet holding onto the fun from your inner child. Discussed is the power of faith, increasing your neuropathy knowledge, getting and giving patient support, and learning to adapt to the changes neuropathy brings to lives – while remaining focused on getting help for your neuropathy.
Critical issues such as getting support from the doctor, family and from the work place are topped off with a chapter on the reality of a patient’s world and the importance of finding a secret place of peace. The seminar leaders poem “When is it Enough?” inspires us, read to the music from “You Lift Me Up” while his two supporting doggies bring the DVD to a close.
