Breaking News

We interrupt this program to bring you BREAKING NEWS.  I have nothing to lose and NO SPONSORS. The occupants residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue should not be allowed  to give a repeat performance of Helter-Skelter Decisions.  Our special task force unit will come around to check and remove all rolls of quarters. There will be NO KOOL-AID served. I repeat, NO KOOL-AID will be served. This is not the Jim Jones’ Inaugural Ball.

The Super Brains of Intelligence and the Emojis of Emotional Intelligence has left the Whitehouse.  The Lights are OFF.  The departure of President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden taught skills of expressive language.  These great orators embraced the podium with their smiles, laughter, tears, and sincerity.  We The People felt the connection. We The People open our minds, hearts and were receptive.  It was not just a dream but this team took the lead.  Match Point!  President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden’s intelligence reflected Equality of the People and Equality of our Nation Rights. Great minds will always Lead the Dream of Hope, Change, Diversity and Inclusion.

Speaking of great minds, the Obama Administration had their moments.  When President Obama penned an Executive Order I don’t recall feeling threaten and bullied. LEFTY signed off on Executive Orders and I felt quite relieved as he poured the concrete.   Our Nation moved FORWARD in a positive direction. This was the moment of truth for Hope and Change.   President Obama did not send my brain and the old memories stored into my brain into fight or flight mode. I did not feel I was on the reality show SURVIVAL. The limbic system plays a huge part in our gut feelings and survival role.  My brain was in Safety Mode.  My central nervous system wasn’t singing Boyz To Mens, End Of The Road.   President Obama was my Uber driver for motivation and learning. He kept my emotional engine running.  My Limbic System was set on cruise control.  The Limbic System structure of the temporal lobe are responsible for regulating many of our emotions, as well as forming and processing memories. It’s wasn’t all about my Limbic System.  My dawgs in the carpool, Amygdala, Hippocampus, Thalamus, Hypothalamus, Cingulate Gyrus, and Basal Ganglia all played great roles.  You got to give credit where credit is due. It’s fun riding 6 deep. Just keeping it real.  Trump better keep plenty of fuel in all of his modes of transportation.  Bottom line, Trump shakes my Sh*t up. How about you America? I am not giving him a ride. Okay! A-myg-da-la plays a hell-of-role and should be nominated for the Oscars. Girlfriend is packing Fear along with her BFF, Cingulate Gyrus.

A-myg-da-la is grand central station for emotions.  She takes her job serious integrating and coordinating emotional behavior.  There are 2 almond shape mass. One on each side of the brain located in the temporal lobe (hearing and memory).  Amygdala hangs out with Arousal.  She is associated with fear and anxiety disorder, OCD, Post Traumatic Stress, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Personality Disorder. My girl can jack with your blood pressure and play Fast and Furious with your heart rate.  Amygdala and fear shouldn’t hang out.  She is hard on the nervous system. My Lessons Learned is from Hard Yard University. It’s Hard in the yard.  There is a price to pay. It is called Accountability.

1.) autonomic response associated with fear

2.) hormone secretions

3.) arousal

4.) memory

5.) emotional response

Hippocampus brings new memories to the table. We never forget to grab her on the way to work. Why? Without my dawg you couldn’t live in the present.  You would be stuck in the past. If hippocampus gets damage we’re looking at severe mental illness (schizophrenia) and some severe depression. Oh boy! When the hippocampus shrink it is said a treatment has been made available to reverse the process and help people with bi-polar disorder and depression.  Hippocampus can get affected by estrogen.  Alzheimer will be looking up your address and staring you in the face. Special Note: Steve Banning, Chief White House Strategist, and White Supremacist ideologies are not New Memories. Steve Banning ideologies of Make America White Again should be BANNED. Living in the PAST. BIG TIME!  Hippocampus, Banning, and Trump will never be on the same flight or in the same car.

1.) hippocampus is seahorse in shape. Mirrored in the right hemisphere of the brain and left hemisphere of the brain.

2.) emotional response

3.) navigation-mapping out ones environment

4.) spatial orientation-just your memory being able navigate through your environment (and if you can’t navigate through your environment use the cell phone GPS, the car high-tech verbal GPS)

5,) long-term memory-can not record new memories but connect emotions to memories

6.) declarative memory-memories purposely recalled for facts and events

7.) motivation

Thalamus involves sensory perception. Understanding is gain through ones senses (sight, taste, smell, sound, hearing, touch etc.).   Thalamus functions controls motor, sleep and awake states. Memory formation, pain perception, and emotional expression is part of Thalamus function. Other functions of the Thalamus package are sensory signals to the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex which process the majority of our information is divided into 4 lobes.  The cortex thin layer of tissue is grey and referred to as grey matter. Nerves in this area lacks insulation which makes other parts of the brain appear white.  The Thalamus process information. More functions included by the Thalamus is thinking, perceiving, producing and understanding language. My dawg has nerve connection with cerebral cortex and the hippocampus.

1.) motor control

2.) receives auditory, Somatosensory (conscious of touch, perception of pain, and warmth that occurs anywhere in the body, position of movement, vibrations of muscles and joint, skin fascia (connective tissue), and visual-perceptual

3.) relays sensory signals to the cerebral cortex

4.) memory formation and emotional expression, pain perception

5.) controls sleep and awake stakes

Hypothalamus, pearl shape size, is the control center of autonomic functions. This is respiration, blood pressure body temperature, regulation of the endocrine structure. Endocrine System secretes hormone, regulates growth, digestion, metabolism, sexual development. Homeostasis process of maintaining body equilibrium by monitoring and adjusting (physiological process) body part functions. Hypothalamus regulates emotional responses through its influences on the pituitary gland, skeleton muscle system, and nervous system (brain and spinal cord and complex neurons). Hunger, thirst, sleep mood, and sex in addition to stress and emotional responses is regulated by the Hypothalamus.

1.) balance of water and electrolytes such as sodium and calcium

2.) production of body fluids (saliva, sweat, tears, urination, defecation)

3.) Endocrine System glands-pineal, thyroid, parathyroids, thymus, adrenal, pancreas, gonads (ovaries and testes)

Cingulate Gyrus helps put emotions and pain in check. It involves predicting and avoiding negative consequences. Functions of the Cingulate Gyrus are listed as followed: Communication, maternal bonding, language expression, decision-making, regulate aggressive behaviors, and coordinates sensory input with emotions.  Cingulate Gyrus has tapped on our door because We The People and Our Nation feel the heat from all the turmoil. Who better to walk us through this unpleasant experience of fear.  The body is definitely woke and truly traumatized. I will personally fasten Cingulate Gyrus into the car. Damages to (CG) can cause cognitive, behavioral and emotional disorders. This includes Depression Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Chronic Pain, Alcohol and Drug Abuse, problems with communication dealing with changing situations, anger, easily frustrated, emotional and violent outburst linked to attention deficit disorder. Schizophrenia, Autism, and Psychiatric Disorders are inclusive when damages to the Cingulate Gyrus.

Basil Ganglia is Mr Motor City. He is involved in primary movement, processes information related to emotions motivations and cognitive functions. BG’s home address or location is deep within the cerebral hemisphere of the brain. Basal Ganglia is associated with a number of disorders that influence movement.  Parkinson disease demonstrate gradual loss of the ability to initiate movement.  Huntington Disease characteristics are failure to prevent parts of the body to move unintentionally. Hemiballismus is a very rare movement disorder with involuntary flinging motions of extremities.

BG has 3 cousins who are a cluster of neurons (caudate nucleus, putamen, and globus pallidus). Did you say Putin? No, I said PUTAMEN. Just checking! They are responsible for involuntary movement such as tremors,  athetosis (characteristics: involuntary, convoluted writhing movement/twisting/squirming and contortions).  The person in this situation is suffering great physical and emotional pain.  Fingers, hands, toes, feet, and sometimes the leg, tongue and neck are affected.  Lesion to the brain is the cause. Athetosis does not act along.  It is accompanied by cerebral palsy. Chorea is abnormal involuntary movement. It is located in one of the neurological groups called dyskinesias meaning involuntary muscle movement.

Basal Ganglia is responsible for voluntary motor control, eye movement, cognitive and emotional functions along with procedural learning. The MRI SCAN has been ordered. I needed a Refresher Course on the Limbic System. I’m the star of Homeland and I can not miss anything. I will not risk We The People and Our Nation. Sh**t I got to make sure I take my meds. Trump will go into  an impulsive tango and will do something more erratic to bring the White House Down ( Jamie Fox plays the role as President. Whitehouse is under assault by terrorist, released 2013) Sounds familiar.

When Executed Orders are signed by Trump it feels like Weapons of Mass Destruction against We The People and Our Nation.  I arrive on the set of FEAR FACTOR fearing for my life and angry as hell.  No PROMISES KEPT for our FUTURE GENERATION because we have an Incompetent President with Severe Mental Illness (SMI) with the Nuclear Codes in his Pockets. If they are not in his pocket check Putin’s Pocket.  Andrea Mitchell could use the No Drama Obama Factor.  So could the entire nation. Trevor Noah’s Tweet of No Excuses turns into Fear All You Can Fear It’s The American Way.  This Does NOT Make American Great Again. Once again I will not sit at the table with Caligula. The words of Caligula “Let Them HATE So Long As They FEAR.”  My response was Hell To The No! No! Democrats rise up from the table and fight an untraditional fight. Where is Dan Rather? I need to talk to him.

Are you ready for the RECALL? Big Eddie would say “Get Out Your Cell Phones. Secret Agent RA! RA! would say, “Let’s see what the results on the PPP Poll is today.” She then would lean in toward the camera, clap her hands together with her eyebrows arched in an arrow position. The next words out her mouth is “BREAKING NEWS.” 🙂  Sir Chris Matthews, Knight of the Round Table, you can delay having your GD moment. Trump has not made it to the SITUATION WAR ROOM. Thank God! Can you even imagine what the outcome of a Global Situation would be. Yes! We’re looking at what Trump has done to the Muslin community. Straight Up Unconstitutional! Do we run the course of fighting it out in court. YES We CAN! 🙂  Before We The People and Our Nation get our A** blown to Smithereens let’s go for THE RECALL.  Just 10 days in office! To hell with 100 Days. Get me Michael Moore on the phone.  Also call Oprah. She knows the process on RECALLS. Tell Ari, Joy, Krystal, Tamara, Toure, Chris H., Andrea and Chuck Todd to get their A** in here Now! I want real stand up journalism when more BREAKING NEWS come in.  Sir Lawrence, why are you standing over there in the corner with that blank sheet of paper with those big black dots? I get it. Wipe that smile off your face before I give you a visual image you won’t be able to get rid of.  Have Gail bring me my notes from the last briefing on the 25th Amendment. I called Oprah and her line is still busy. Keep trying. I need that information.

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) Mad Cows Disease, the Cattle and the Beef was RE CALLED. Ford Motor Company RECALLED their cars. Tylenol RECALLED their pills,  EBOLI OUTBREAK, people were RECALLED, and AUTOPSIES were performed.  Whenever there is an outbreak or Epidemic and lives are endangered a RECALL by the CENTER OF DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) or NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH (NIMH) is convened.  It is Time to convene and RECALL the President.  We The People should not live in FEAR.   We The People should not work in FEAR. We The People should live to Survive our own adversities. We The People CLOCK OUT from the Job. We will not let TRUMP CLOCKED OUT our LIVES by his irrational behaviors and decisions.  Our Nation should not Die at the hands of Trump Adversities. Trump has disorders wrapped around many concurring conditions including Hatred and Racism.  You would think Benny and The Jets Carson would come forward and validate Trump’s behavior. Ain’t he a neurosurgeon? Carson is retired from that position and so is his mind. RECALL him too.

RECALL the Electoral College, Mitch McConnell (Senate Majority Leader), Paul Ryan (Speaker Of The House), and Reince Priebus (Chief Of Staff of the White House), They appear to be the New Order and the faces of White Supremacy.  NOS (Not Otherwise Specified) has been Identified.  Has there been any sudden outburst of Irrational, Impulsive and Destructive Behavior? Yes, the firing of Sally Yates. She is Acting Attorney General from the Obama Administration. Sally Yates is of sound mind and body. Did Trump process any of his actions before he took the path of Mental Short cuts?  Did he have any bullet points or his less information sheet to carry out his irrational behavior? What?  No Mam! Future Lady President. Did He carry this action out on Twitter? LAWD! LAWD! Dear JE–SUS! Are the results in?  The New Order of White Supremacy took over the Republican Party. Well, it is the same Order of White Supremacy who held the backroom meeting to make sure President Barack Obama would only be a 1 term president. The same Order of White Supremacy dressed in suits who would not allow President Obama to select a Supreme Court Justice. Really! The idea of letting Black, Brown, Tan, Beige tell the HOODIE BROTHERS what to do. Have you forgotten already? Conversion Time! Take back the country and MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN.

President Obama was called out on his Birth Certificate. He was called an appeasers.  The PRICE OF HOPE was extremely costly but through it all he remain quite calm. I never worried about the Nuclear Codes. I’m quite sure President Obama did not sit in the SITUATION WAR ROOM and take MENTAL SHORTCUTS.  Mental Shortcuts can lead to COGNITIVE BIASES. Mental Shortcuts are used to classify and categorize people. RELEVANT information is overlooked.  Stereotypes and Prejudiced will ascend from the ashes of hell to create a false reality.  President Obama absorb an abundance of information.  He was there for ALL the briefings.  TWITTER IS NOT THE PLACE  to run the United States of America.

President Obama was able to apply old information to new.  He was not stuck in the past. President Obama’s hippocampus checked out perfectly. President Obama did not FADE OUR NATION TO BLACK.  We are a Nation that has Come out of the Dark no longer to live in the Shadows. YES WE CAN__FORWARD. President Obama used his Executive Pen to move FORWARD but not for the purpose of Hatred, Racism Retaliation, and Discrimination.  Congress blocked the President at every turn.   Now it is TIME to hold Congress ACCOUNTABLE for cheering on Negative Behaviors. If I couldn’t get the job done I would be out of a job. President Obama did not sign We The People and Our Nation’s Life away. He fulfilled many promises. He reached across oceans and climbed the highest mountains for our NATION to be that of an INCLUSIVE NATION. This Is The PRICE OF HOPE, CHANGE, DIVERSITY, and INCLUSIVENESS. The Lights are On Lead by a Magnificent Mind.

Trump goes into his mantra/chant of “You know what this Mean” Hell Yell! I know exactly what it means.  Repetitive Obsessive, Impulsive, Destructive Behaviors of punishment all caught on tape. Did President Obama ever DRAW his signature on an Executive Order? Did President Obama ever say, ” you know what this means.”  A sharpie! Look closer at the signature.  You call that writing?  I call it dysgraphia. Whew! When a child sit down and is force to write. You know what this mean. As soon as they get up from their desk or table the frustration and anger will manifest itself. Surprise! All hell is going to break loose.  The behavior will become quite explosive. Baby girl just broke my TV.   Replace this skill set of writing with the use of an iPad.  Thank God for Steve Jobs. Look what Trump broke in less than 100 days in office with that sharpie. Hmm!  Can Trump write?  He lied about writing the book Art Of The New Deal. Do you recall President Obama ever holding up the Executive order and using a flat or monotone facial expression? He can write. President Obama had his mind made up about the Affordable Health Care Act. He LEAD his own thoughts and was not manipulated by others.  Here we go with 69 Shades of Grey from Congress and they don’t have a plan yet to Repeal and Replace Obama Care. President Obama executive functioning really are functioning. The lights are OFF in the White House. Does Trump have a mind? I sure would like to see the results of his MRI SCAN.

The results are in. Where did you get that MRI SCAN from? Don’t worry about it. I got connections at Grey’s Academy. Don’t you mean Grey’s Anatomy. No! We have to find a way to call the cable company and disconnect Trump Tv.  Is this legal? Where have you been?  Everything that has happen in this week is not legal and Unconstitutional. BREAKING NEWS: The Cerebral Cortex and its 4 lobes checked out. The Frontal Lobe: voluntary muscle movement/motor functions, thinking, decision-making and planning, higher order functions, reasoning, judgement,impulse control, memory, language, and speech.  (Check Baby, Check Baby 1,2,3). Well, he’s top Lefty Chief of Organization Skills. Parietal Lobe: Cognition, Receiving and processing sensory information. The 5 senses are in excellent condition. Taste/gustation, smell/olfaction, touch/somatosensory, sight/visual, and hearing/auditory, movement coordination, visual perception, reading and writing, math computation, understanding spatial orientation.  (Check Baby, Check Baby 1,2,3).  Occipital Lobe: process visual information from the retina, visual perception, color recognition, reading, reading comprehension, depth perception, recognition.   Lefty clearly understands what he is seeing. Can I sing a new tune. Please! When I first saw you, you had Sparkle in your eyes. Go Head! Cameo 1979. Shut Up before you tell our ages.  Okay Stevie B imitation. Joy has told you about she can do her job. Don’t ever say Shut Up again. I apologize. Okay: Temporal Lobe: Organize sensory as well as auditory, perception, memory information, speech production and language. Check mate!

Dan Rather, you are absolutely right. Extraordinary Times cause for Extraordinary Measures. The election was an Enigma. Trump is an Enigma. I will keep my promise.  Here is the information you wanted on Severe Mental Illness (SMI) and concurring conditions which overlap.(In real time, Dan did not ask for this information).   There will not be a stain or stigma residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.  In the first 2 years of President Barack Obama’s PROMISES KEPT  he stated, “LET’S BE THE GENERATION THAT MAKES FUTURE GENERATIONS PROUD OF WHAT WE DID HERE. Will there be a future generation if Trump continue his Negative Behaviors?  Has anyone seen Trump replace any Negative Behaviors With Positive Behaviors? Will there be a moment in time NOW where our nation can survive the punishment that is being inflicted by an Incompetent President with monumental threatening behaviors?  Instead of Donald Trump being held accountable he is rewarded for Negative Behavior.  He does not understand Consequences nor does he fear consequences.  Trump’s cheerleader are mirrored after him and lack knowledge just like him. Look at the Billion Dollars Babies he picked for his cabinet who are not qualified to do the job.   Trump cabinet members will hinder his ability to make appropriate or good decision and solve problems. Steve Banning(Chief Strategist of the Whitehouse) is on my knock off list. Don’t you mean 250 count white sheet and white pillowcase man. Low Count!  More like No Count.  What’s up with the Bullet Points?  Hmmm! MENTAL SHORT CUTS.

There are times when we need to put our brain on speed dial.  Mental shortcuts (heuristics) allow us to problem solve and make decisions quickly and effectively.  The 2 most common heuristic are availability heuristic (accessing relevant information in your mind). Representative heuristics (decision-making process by comparing the Present Day situation to mental examples in your mind). These shortcuts are designed to save on time when determining risk.  This process filter through a lot of information.  Just think if our brain had to analyze every single aspect of a situation or every decision we make.  This is a nice coping skill device to keep our brain from gong into maximum overdrive. If our brain takes a walk on the wild side not a D**n thing will get done.  Whew! Makes me tired just thinking about the outcome.  Okay! Reach down into your pocket and pull out your RULE-OF THUMB. We can save on brain gas and function more effectively so we don’t blow out all of the tires having to think about everything and what will be the next step of action. Lots of people don’t have a spare in the back of their trunk or a donut. These are the people using fix-a-flat. Sir Lawrence O’Donnell can you imagine fix-a-flat brain?  Mental Shortcuts  can be dangerous and can lead to the following  BIASES:

1.) confirmation bias-People refuse to listening to the other person point of view or consider facts in a logical manner. Information given only confirms what they believe.  ex., People who feel global warming doesn’t exist and confirm their belief.  People who believe there should be no background checks for Gun control. The Wayne La Pierre Syndrome, ” the only way to defeat a bad guy with a gun is to arm a good guy with a gun”.   Trump who thinks there is voters fraud. American should be White again. Trump confirms his belief that Muslims are terrorist.  I’m not hearing it. I Did It My way Program. Even when you know there needs to be No hearing for voters fraud, Trump needs to confirm what exist in his mind only.

2.) hindsight bias-When you here, I knew it was going to happen. I knew it all along. It was inevitable. Polls being more predictable than what they truly are. I knew it syndrome. Well, that sure in the hell didn’t happen in the 2017 elections. Just venting!

3.) anchoring bias-The first piece of information we hear. Quick decisions we make when we don’t shop around. How much are we willing to pay?  The information you give your doctor can make him susceptible/influence to make the wrong diagnosis.  When you go to negotiate for a salary increase the First Lady would say, when they go low you go high. 🙂 Just letting you know I was paying attention. How long a person expect to live? When should my kid start dating?

4.) misinformation effect-The questions contain misleading information distorted by memory. The original information got mixed up with the misleading information. The misleading information took over my memory. The misleading information is more recent. Misleading information comes to mind first.  When the incident happen the information that was important got switch around in one’s head. So now their using the misleading information to fill in the gaps.  Time, discussing the events with other people/witnesses, news (especially fake news) and excessive exposure to alternative facts plays a major role in misinformation effect. 🙂 Okay!

5.)  actor-observer bias-People can’t see their own actions or behaviors. When something goes wrong they blame their action on some outside force. ex. Danny’s teacher gives long and drawn out lectures. He failed his exam. The teacher got blamed. No! Danny A** didn’t study?  As the observer people tend to blame their actions on internal causes. John is never on time for the movies (internal) John is always so tired and sleepy.

6.) false consensus effect-over value their own opinion, Over estimate how many people beliefs, behaviors attitudes and values are the same as theirs. Over estimate the vast majority think the way they do and it will benefit their self-esteem. Over estimates the people who share your political views, share your preference. The false reality if one person support you in that particular neighborhood everyone will support you. False reality if I like it or buy it everyone should follow my lead.

7.) halo effect-overall impression impacts you evaluation process.  Physical Attractive people or more favorable. Global impact of  likable personalities. (stereotype) The smart and pretty effect. Drab and not attractive would be considered not intelligent. Employers rate eye candy as smart, competent, and qualified. Marketers get a celebrity to endorse a product and the rating goes up.

8.) self-serving bias-Give themselves credit for SUCCESS and lay the blame for FAILURES on others. TRUMP SYNDROME. LLC Incorporation! Since people became INCORPORATION let’s include Mitch McConnell (Senator Majority Leader of Kentucky), Paul Ryan (House Speaker), Reince Priebus (Chief-of-staff). This is the New Order. The self-esteem protector leads to faulty attributes such as blaming others for their shortcomings.  It also keeps the self-esteem in tact by blaming a person age, gender, race, and DISABILITY.  NOT MY FAULT, NEVER! NO APOLOGIES.

9.) availability heuristics mental shortcuts design to save time when determining risk. Relying on this way of thinking lead to bad decisions and poor estimates. ex. Lotto time. I need to start buying tickets. What are your chances of winning. Making judgements on what is readily brought to mind. Man! There have been a lot of airplane crashes. Hmm! I bet not take a plane. Whatever comes to mind you base your decision on that information. Even if the information is not relevant.  Ford had 64 layoffs. I probably be next.

10.) optimism bias-Too optimistic for your own good. It can happen to you not me. Why me! Our rational and logical brain goes south. Ain’t no way in the world I’m suppose to lose my house, get a divorce, diagnose with an incurable disease. You are vulnerable and suffer illusions of vulnerability. We believe we are less likely to suffer misfortunes and more likely to be successful.  What are the odds of being struck by lightning? The odds of a tornado sticking because one has not hit the area you live in.  Impacts of false optimism is health risk, drinking, drugs, gambling, and smoking. The God will take care of it Syndrome. God needs your undivided attention, cooperation and participation. This Bias isn’t all bad. We need optimism with a sense of REALTY to move forward and look toward the future. Giving hope and motivation so when we do fail we will take responsibility and not blame others.

What! Trump has no THUMBS. That is NO EXCUSE he has feet. He needs to be held ACCOUNTABLE with whatever body part he has left.  Trump has more biases than what I listed.  Donald Trump stepped on a lot of toes and pissed a lot of people off. Has anyone checked on Mitt, Chris, and Rudy? We thought we give them some time and space to cool off. Well, you better ship them to Alaska because I don’t think it will be no time soon. Do you think they were committed? No!  This is what happens when Affluent Mental Illness Goes Untreated. This is the facts not alternative facts. What is Affluent Mental Illness gone untreated? The high dollar privileged individual (Richey Rich) folks that is let off the hook for their disruptive and violent Intentional Behaviors by their peers, a judge, and society.  Even when mental illness can be factor in their national cheerleaders don’t seem to care and encourage more negative behaviors. All sins are forgiven and it is okay for the person or persons to pay for their sins with cash, corporate credit cards donate high dollars to an affluent judges or charities. The list gets better. Sleeping With The Enemy Part II influences a Nation Election being compromised.  BECOME THE PRESIDENT, LIE, CHEAT, STEAL, and even RISK the lives of the many troops for the Dumb A** oil statement.  Speaking of OIL, Trump even pissed Dick Cheney off. Wow! Cheney said he went to far on the Muslin ban. Unbelievable! Even Cheney changed his position. What do you think Sr. Chris Matthew? You think Dick just want a piece of the Spotlight? Make me smile and say CHENEY for me. Come on!

Trump does not reside at Reality Boulevard.  The President lacks information, gullible, lacks wisdom, experience, lacks judgement especially in foreign affairs. These are the components of NAIVENESS. Who can benefit by exploiting Trump deficiencies?  Say It With Me Now! Vladimir Putin! Who will feed Trump the BS he wants to here so he thinks he is King? Who wants to control the WORLD? Who played Russian Roulette with our Nation’s Election? Everyone in the Nation has witness Trump out of control behaviors. The media and the Democrats are looking in the wrong spot. Revealed through the lens under the surface of ones skin a passageway has open and revealed what is deep within. There is nothing for you to attain. Right before your lens the answer lies in Trump’s Brain. The RNC wants an AUTOPSY. Well here’s my Contribution. Fight On The Assessment of Observation and Evaluation.  With the biases listed above we will not judge. We will be able to  evaluate REALISTICALLY.  All has been documented on tape and viewed through the lens of We The People and Our Nation. RECALL:

WE INTERRUPT THIS PROGRAM TO BRING YOU BREAKING NEWS: You have just entered the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. This is an INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT. You will not be BANNED. WELCOME TO OUR WORLD.

Where Is Your Sense Of Normal?

Where did it go? What happened to your ability to separate RIGHT from WRONG? Where are your morals? So I guess you don’t visit the TRUTHS playground. Why would you ENDORSE a liar, a cheater, a deceiver, and a heart-breaker?

Whatever happened to TRUST? It all boils down to YOUR SENSE Of NORMAL. My journey to your side of the chart wasn’t easy. As my feet touch down on the pavement I recognize so many people have lost their SENSE OF NORMAL.

They have been in their IVORY TOWER too long. Whomever their circle of friends are, this is who and what they relate to.

The ENVIRONMENT, the PEOPLE you surround yourself with, and the PEOPLE you ENDORSE play a big part in YOUR SENSE OF NORMAL. The bottom line is knowing who you are as a person, to evaluate and separate the truth from a lie.

Most important of all is walking away with your self-esteem in tact and not letting those who challenge your action/behaviors make you feel bad about yourself. Now you are on my turf, THE FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART.

The grass is definitely a different color and the turf is not the same nor the people. I came to you to discuss the UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS of NLD SYNDROME and bring AWARENESS.

My deal was to help you understand how people who are diagnosed with NLD Syndrome are shamed, embarrassed, humiliated, and isolated because of their NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER. Do they have a CHOICE?

Are you beginning to understand why this diagnosis has been overlooked by the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION(APA) for 41 years? The APA hasn’t done a good job. They have not been able to arrive at an intelligent decision regarding the DSMIV. They couldn’t “DIAGNOSE a DONUT.”

APA has a very strong correlation with SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER, REPUBLICANS, and PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS. NONE of these people have been able to do an effective job. It ain’t personal. Need I say MO!

The burden of wearing just a few characteristics such as rude, cruel, unintelligent, awkward, angry, social blunders, and “an odd ball” rests on the shoulders of those diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME.

People who are diagnosed with a NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER and UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS have been misjudged, misinterpreted, and punished. In contrast, the REPUBLICANS have literally gotten away with murder and their INTENTIONAL behaviors have been rewarded many TIMES.

People with NLD SYNDROME are highly criticized for their poor choices and left without a voice. They are often presented with too many choices and have difficulty with organizational skills, and much more.

In comparison to NLD’ERS, The REPUBLICANS and PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS have similar difficulty with organization, decision-making, social blunders, and lack of communication skills.

So the PEOPLE of OUR NATION are expected to get on board and ENDORSE one of these KNUCKLE HEADS. NO! I don’t think so. Where is YOUR SENSE OF NORMAL? So the REPUBLICANS BEHAVIOR is STRAIGHT UP INTENTIONAL.

Did you forget this word ANOSOGNOSIS? ANOSOGNOSIS is one of the strongest CHARACTERISTICS OF NLD SYNDROME. I don’t mind having a review. We can work this out. No matter how many TIMES I have to go over this word I will.

In the PRESIDENT’S speech he mentioned the word JOBS many TIMES. OH WELL! ANOSOGNOSIS generally means that due to the nature of NLD SYNDROME, people diagnosed with this disability do not have the ability to recognize the seriousness of their own problems.

They see their peers as they see themselves, not having a problem. When faced with pain, hurt, and sorrow these EMOTIONS need to be POINTED OUT to a person with NLD SYNDROME. They are unable to process another’s life experience.

They are unable to put themselves inside your shoes or in your place. However, it is not a hopeless situation and NLDERS can learn compassion, empathy, and support, if given the opportunity.

Emotions can be very difficult to teach unless you are willing to break yourself down to the lowest denominator. The mantra becomes: “YOU TEACH, and YOU TEACH, and YOU TEACH.”

For example, a stroke victim may need REhabilitation and occupational therapy to relearn life skills, NLD’ERS need habilitation to be taught life skills.

This is mandatory teaching before they are ridiculed, their self-esteem is taken out of the box, and they become isolated from society.

Annoyance and frustration ride on the backs of people who have come into contact with NLD’ERS for an extended period of time. Guess who is the first one that is cast aside and thrown into the lion’s den. Need I say MO!

The REPUBLICANS have used this characteristic of NLD SYNDROME, ANOSOGNOSIS, along with their RADICAL INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR. They MAXED OUT their BEHAVIORAL credit cards and the 18 numbers to boot. The PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS used it in the DEBATES. Where was the AUDIENCES’ SENSE OF NORMAL?

What have you learned after COMPARING and CONTRASTING the REPUBLICANS RADICAL INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS to NLD SYNDROME? Bottom line is CHOICE. PEOPLE with NLD SYNDROME do not choose to FAIL. The REPUBLICANS, and the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS pride themselves on making POOR CHOICES.

They want to see THE PEOPLE, THE PRESIDENT, and THE NATION FAIL. The REPUBLICANS are CHOMPING AT THE BITS. Where is the SENSE OF NORMAL in FAILURE when it cannot strengthen ones ability to learn from the outcome? This is food for thought.

How did we regress and get onto PERSONHOOD RIGHTS? What is the REPUBLICANS SENSE OF NORMAL on WOMENS RIGHTS? What is the REPUBLICANS SENSE OF NORMAL on being HUMANE? Do the REPUBLICANS have any SENSE? The key in being HUMANE is giving WOMEN the RIGHTS to make their OWN CHOICES.

When someone comes in and tries to strip you of your dignity and humiliate you it is TIME TO BRING IT. The RICK-HEADS in CONGRESS want to joke around and devalue the lives of WOMEN.

I want you Ladies to find the fanciest words regarding the VAGINA to see if The House of Delegates of Virginia can pronounce or even INTERPRET the meaning. It is a shame that CONGRESS has not only devalued the lives of WOMEN but has tried to cripple the entire Nation.

Throughout this rigorous journey in seeking INTERVENTION for my son, I ran across many doctors who only wanted to medicate my son. When I questioned their authority I was informed that they were the doctors, and that they knew what they were doing.

WHAT THE HAH HELL did that mean? It gets even better. I was told by one doctor to go ahead and spank him, like “you folks” normally do, give him some orange juice with robutussin, and that should solve the problem. Oh hell NO!

Is this the reason why we have so many children who later in life are strung out on drugs?

Is this the reason why we see our children/adults die because of lack of INTERVENTION, dedication, and advocacy from the parents? Is this the reason why so many of our most talented entertainers are taken out by drugs because they are enabled by family, friends, associates, and doctors?

Where is the DOCTOR’S SENSE OF NORMAL? Where is the PARENT’S SENSE OF NORMAL? Where is SOCIETY’S SENSE OF NORMAL? If any of these people listed above enabled a HUMAN LIFE down the PATH of DESTRUCTION they had NO SENSE OF NORMAL.

I was finally given options when I rolled across a TEAM of doctors who were willing to take the risk and learn by doing extensive research on my son. Through their hope and encouragement the Neuro-psychologists at KU MED have given validation and recognition. They were caring and humane.

This TEAM of doctors had a strong SENSE OF NORMAL. Who we need to endorse will either make us a winner or a loser. It has taken me countless years to realize I didn’t need validation from the APA.

Yes, LORD! Medication would be weighed in as the very last resort. HALLELUJAH! It was all about coping skills, strategies, and teaching/focusing on life skills in order to have a successful program.

President OBAMA said it best. Whoever told you that it will take a silver bullet to drill your way out of lower gas prices is not telling the TRUTH. It will take TIME and a COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH. The same goes for the people who are diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME.

When the PRESIDENT and his wife was ready to buy a condo they openly admitted, even though they are attorneys, they could not understand the language in the mortgage agreement. WOW! He developed a simpler package to help homeowners get through the process.

Thank You JE….SUS! We have a PRESIDENT who is HUMANE and RESPECT the CHOICES of WE THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, and OUR NATION. This is a man with a GREAT SENSE OF NORMAL:).

I would like to give SPECIAL thanks to THE PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS for teaching me the ultimate lesson in WHERE IS YOUR SENSE OF NORMAL. Losers endorse losers, liars endorse liars, and infidelity endorses infidelity.

I want to go with truth endorses truth, trust endorses trust, and facts endorses facts.

HOLD UP! HOLD UP! I ain’t done yet. So I roll up to the school with all of my documentation. The BOARD of EDUCATION, SUPERINTENDENT, and the teachers are not willing to properly accommodate my son’s INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM (IEP)

An IEP is the blueprint that lays out a program for disabled and learning disabled children. Who did I think I was telling these educators what to do? They were a AAA DISTRICT. They didn’t have to accommodate something they never heard of or the doctors had little knowledge in.

The atmosphere turned into DEEP SPACE NINE. Where was their SENSE Of NORMAL? I could bring milk and cookies to the in-service meetings but I would have NO CHOICE or say in my son’s education. I remember being told in one meeting they were the real educators. WHAT! My reply was this.

Where were you on the countless nights when I was reading to my child his bedtime stories? Where were you on the countless days of breastfeeding and I was trying to teach my son how to walk and talk? Where were you when I was teaching my son how to sink the cheerios in the toilet?

Where were you when he was given his immunization shots and I was up all night trying to soothe his aches and pains? “I think you need to rethink your position and realize who is the TRUE EDUCATOR and rephrase your question.”

The child diagnosed with NLD IS a masterful educator. My son has educated me with his extraordinary mind, his unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles.

This is going to be a long battle. Children with disabilities are a budget cut. The NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND under the BUSH ADMINISTRATION was a BUST. It will take TIME but the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION has made changes to the school systems. Hey, they are getting there.

Ladies you are going to love this one. You go to the doctor and everyone has the same scheduled appointment TIME. You’re sitting in the office waiting. There are people who have arrived way later than you but your name hasn’t been called. They walk straight through and get waited on.

Finally it is your turn and the doctor comes in takes a seat and reminds you he’s on a tight schedule. Okay, I have sat there all day, the first one in, last one out, and treated with disrespect. The doctor pats his feet, checks his watch, no eye contact, and flips over the chart.

Then he says, ” I am here to conserve your breast.” What I have decided to do is…… Where was this doctor’s SENSE OF NORMAL? HOLD UP! HOLD UP! Unless doc you are ROCKIN THE LIST and you cannot give me eye contact, I understand.

His body language wasn’t too friendly. Cancer patients got tired of being beaten down and needed more hope. The CANCER TREATMENT CENTER Of AMERICA were established. People got tired of doctors talking smack. BIG TIME SENSE OF NORMAL

On this note it is called a second opinion. I have decided to conserve my LIFE by my own CHOICE. I’m up for grabs again but I’m cool. You don’t get silly and fight over one breast. This is MY SENSE OF NORMAL.

There have been so many women who have died from unnecessary invasive procedures. Let us not forget even down to your last breath you have the right to be treated with DIGNITY and RESPECT and given CHOICES.

BRING IT and SPEAK TO THE PEOPLE. NLD Mom/cancer survivor

Hard Yard University__Commencement Day

Today is a very special day for many of the young men and women going forth into the world. It’s very frightening not knowing what you will be up against. It gets more complex when there is no VALIDATION to who you are, what you can achieve, or who you may become.

There is greater complexity when you have an extraordinary mind, unique abilities, with multiple learning styles and multiple intelligence. Different learning styles needed to be incorporated. You were BORN WITH and will continue to LIVE WITH these unique abilities.

Your struggles in school was difficult and your education is based on UNTRADITIONAL METHODS with many ACCOMMODATIONS. The school of today is slowly RECOGNIZING every child cannot be taught by TRADITIONAL methods. TRADITIONAL METHODS, logical and linguistic, hinder your learning. The world is not a TRADITIONAL PLACE and you will make many changes in your life adjusting and readjusting those ACCOMMODATIONS suited for your LIFE STYLE. Change and Adaptability is difficult for many. It gets really hard for some folks. WEE-DOGGY! I know that sounds strange.

Now you young folks of today would say YO-DIGGTY NO DOUBT. I’m getting there. This was taken from an old guy name JED CLAMPETT from the BEVERLY HILLBILLIES. JED was a 1% who had NO SENSE about money. He struck oil and moved next door to SPEAKER BOEHNER, and MITCH McConnell. Things haven’t been right for these guys since JED came to town. BLACK WALNUT, BLACK GOLD, BLACK IS THE NEW PINK, BLACK FRIDAY, BLACK ME, is very disturbing to the GOP. The BLACK GOLD spikes their GREED and their NEEDS are always placed above others.

The HILLBILLIES we are dealing with today care only about themselves, and TAX CUTS for the RICH. Let the POOR BE POOR, to hell with jobs and infrastructure, and screw the MIDDLE CLASS. Ask the GOP, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS how they really feel.

The bottom line, you might not have this label that society has bestowed upon you, if they had stepped up their game and had become more flexible, adaptable, and willing to change. In the mainstream, you were considered to be a “BRIGHT STUDENT”. In SPECIAL EDUCATION you were labeled as “DISABLED”. The RIGHT WING may not have been labeled HILLBILLIES if they weren’t so “DOG-GONE CONSERVATIVE.” WEE-DOGGY! UNDER the BUSH ADMINISTRATION you were an ENDANGERED SPECIES, a TAX CUT, and you would be LEFT BEHIND. The schools continued to force down the throats of the students who sit here before me repetition, book based learning, and they used many types of examination to pressure students for review and reinforcement. The teachers were forced to lie to keep from educating the DISABLED. You were viewed as broken and damaged. You were cast aside and you were ON YOUR OWN. I’m proud to say, “YOU ENDURED IT and MADE IT” through all the changes even though you were not properly ACCOMMODATED.

You suffered when you showed perseverance and impulsive tendencies. It was a toss-up between RICK PERRY and NEWT GINGRICH. You were bullied and made fun of because of the many blunders due to the lack of expressive-receptive language. MITT ROMNEY, RICK PERRY, NEWT GINRICH fought hard over this characteristic/trait and pulled MICHELLE BACHMAN’S hair out of her head for beating the GANG of THREE. You were accused of harassment because you were unable to understand boundaries. You did not understand how to initiate conversation. Once you got started you did not understand how to end the conversation. You needed someone there to cue you in, to cut you off, and say to move away from the individual so you would not look as though you were “CREEPY”.

HERMAN CAIN was at the top of his game on this one. HERMAN was disqualified because he “CHEATED” in more ways than one. He knew exactly where he was standing when he was talking to his accuser. He demonstrated the height of the lady and compared her height to his wife. Now he knows where he stands. OUT THE DOOR. He was disqualified from the DEBATES and the PRETENDERS RACE. He really is “CREEPY”. You have difficulty identifying with figures of authority. People think of you as arrogant, disrespectful with implosive/explosive behaviors. NEWT GINGRICH and DONALD TRUMP have a TUG-OF-WAR over this characteristic/trait. You were taunted and teased because you lacked organization skills. TIMING was off and you could not be TIMED TESTED, pushed for deadline dates, and had problems with EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS.

CONGRESS is the LEGISLATIVE BRANCH they ROCK this characteristic/trait. They have nothing on you and they own this one. You were ridiculed for your clumsiness, coordination, and you had to try really hard to participate in sports. Any type of competition or debate would manifest your TRUE BEHAVIOR. Debates are not a format that you can handle due to the inability to stay focused. RICK PERRY is the KING. In one of his debates he proved this to be a straight-up FACT. RICK PERRY exceeded with flying colors. He gets an Debates will set you up for failure due to the way you process information, organization of the information, and the amount of TIME you have to process the information in. Once the environment becomes overstimulating and distracting, the attentional deficit kicks in. All of the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS DEBATES are held in a large arena. If the question is given with any abstract language then the answer can become “OOPS, I MADE A BOO BOO!”

It is hard for some of you to think creatively or abstractly. I now understand NOT to ask the question in the format of CAN YOU IMAGINE, WHAT IF, IF YOU WERE ME, PUT YOURSELF IN MY PLACE, IF YOU WERE IN MY SHOES. It is hard for you to keep track or switch gears. You are truthful by NO-FAULT and people hate the TRUTH, the questions, and the questions you challenge them on. RON PAUL is a fine example of TRUTH-BY-NO-FAULT. He sticks to his GUNS.

Yes, today you have become MASTERFUL EDUCATORS. You are the TRUE PROFESSIONALS and TRUE TEACHING TOOLS. YOU WILL SURVIVE. It is NOT to say that you are incapable of learning strategies and coping skills to help with the multiple deficits you have in your life. It is NOT to say you are entirely incapable of controlling your behavior once it has manifested. It IS to say you can go out into the world and LAUNCH your LIFE with the continued teaching of the APPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS, SOCIAL SKILLS, and LIFE SKILLS given the OPPORTUNITY. You have a jump-start on those who have not been tested. It is very hard to deal with the unknown.

You were once UNRECOGNIZED. You are NOW RECOGNIZABLE.

In 1869 HARVARD COLLEGE was the first in the UNITED STATES to bestow the highest distinction of honors to their graduates. From the period of 1872-1879 based on your grade point average of 90% or better the highest Latin honorary distinction of SUMMA-CUM-LAUDE was awarded. The LATIN honorary distinction of CUM-LAUDE graduating with honors was also awarded during this TIME period. IN 1880 based on you grade point average of 80%, the LATIN term magna-cum-laude was bestowed. Today, I look upon this entire class as VALEDICTORIANS. I know we can all sing together. There was a TIME when we would say we cannot talk at the same TIME. Even this has changed with the HUMAN MICROPHONES dishing out the microphone checks.

It has taken your NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS to POINT OUT and have others PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS of the GOP, CONGRESS, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS and those members of the BLACK CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS with their own agendas. In life we are sometimes given the worse scenario to rule out the characteristics and traits of the most common diagnosis. If you had no clue why the WORDS did not match the RESPONSE and ACTION of the INDIVIDUAL, YOU DO NOW. It is the POWER of APPROPRIATE WORDS that if given to the individual which will IGNITE the APPROPRIATE RESPONSE and ACTION, to keep the individual from being listed on the CHART of STUPIDITY. Worse scenario, when there is no INTERVENTION the individual is ranked high on the IGNORANT LIST.

Whenever there is BLUNDER it is to be CORRECTED and REDIRECTED IMMEDIATELY. No corrections or redirections of the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS dialogue were made when they had their BLUNDERS and the audience clapped. No corrections or redirecting took place when the PRESIDENT was CALLED a LIAR. No correction or redirection was given to MITCH McCONNELL, JOHN BOEHNER, ERIC CANTER, PAUL RYAN, MICHELLE BACHMAN, ALAN WEST, JIM DIMINT, SARAH PALIN and many others in the GOP. Today they will graduate with honors in the areas of OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE and INEQUALITY for WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION.(MAGNA-CUM-LAUDE) Take a closer look at the BEHAVIORS of BILL O’REILLY, SHAWN HANNITY, ANN COULTER (WHO HAS HER OWN BLACKS), STEVE DEUCY, GRETCHEN CARLSON, BRIAN KILMEADE, ERIC BOLLING all at FOXS NEWS. Today they will graduate with honors of INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS(CUM-LAUDE).

You wonder why NEWT GINGRICH is out of control, has explosive/implosive behaviors, something just doesn’t add up with him and many others who display INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIORS. He has plenty of role models. Take a look at the environment and what the people ACCEPT as ACCEPTABLE. The UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS with neurological deficits want to COMPLY because they are tired of being punished, isolated, and labeled as being UNACCEPTABLE. The INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS purpose is to destroy and break down the EMOTIONS and the SELF-WORTH of the individual.

It took the WORD APPEASER to put the INTENTIONAL BLUNDERS at the top of the IGNORANT CHART. It took MARTIN BASHIR LESSON WITHIN LESSONS to show the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS of MITT ROMNEY. ED SCHULTZS played sound bites to demonstrate how the PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS all jumped on board. They failed to do any research. It took those very sound bites from ED SCHULTZ’S SHOW to demonstrate the dignity, grace, and respect the PRESIDENT of our NATION displayed to give credit to the TROOPS. GOP did not get the message because they are so busy trying to APPEASED the 1%. In the paper it was printed in BOLD TYPED LETTERS, THE GOP JUST DON’T CARE by ROLAND MARTIN. It was RACHEL MADDOW overhead sign that displayed the WORD BLUNDER. I knew it was “COMMENCEMENT TIME”. This would be the making of another LIFE MOVIE, “INCEPTION 2.”

CHA-CHING! We all have come so far. We have higher mountains to climb and roads to travel when looking at the BEHAVIORS from the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. It has been a challenge but we must continue to LOOK “OUTSIDE OF THE BOX” and be DIVERGENT THINKERS.

To the GRADUATING CLASS of 2012, those who sit before me diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME, hold your heads up high. You are a HUMAN LIFE beyond the SYNDROME and the DIAGNOSIS. Today you will graduate with the highest honors.(SUMMA-CUM-LAUDE)

NLD SYNDROME has opened the eyes of many. You have sung SMOKEY ROBINSON’S song, POINTED OUT. The traits/characteristic of NLD SYNDROME have brought CLARITY to many and CLOSURE to others. It made the DEMOCRATS, the MEDIA, attorneys, parents, and people all over the WORLD PAY CLOSE ATTENTION. It is truly an HONOR to be in the PRESENCE of the graduating class with NLD SYNDROME. It took everything that you were unable to do, struggle with, being ostracized, and punished to call out the GOP, REPUBLICANS, and the TEA PARTY.

This is not a DEFICIT. This is NLD SYNDROMES GREATEST STRENGTH. You have revealed to the WORLD who are the COWARDS, who showed WEAKNESS, who DENOUNCE POLICIES, and who OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE AND EQUALITY FOR ALL. YES, WE CAN understand and can distinguish INAPPROPRIATE INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS. It took some TIME but we have chosen to continue to LEARN and LEARN MORE. The BEHAVIORS of RUSH LIMBAUGH, GLEN BECK (A.K.A. HAROLD HILL), RUPERT MURDOCK and the FAST 5, the GREED of the BANKS, and the 1% demonstrated denouncement of PROGRESSIVENESS. They did not CARE.

At this TIME, can I have the entire class of VALEDICTORIANS please stand(every one rises). I have been accused of being a SOCIALIST, MARXIST, and I’m definitely not the FLAVOR OF THE MONTH. I’m not a bragger but I’m PERSISTENT. I have been told NO every step of the way.I have flaws. I’m HUMAN. I’M FOR THE PEOPLE and the needs of the PEOPLE come FIRST. Today is the first day of LIFE’S NEW CHALLENGES. You were born with many NEW CHALLENGES. You were rejected many TIMES because of the CHALLENGES. You must always remember never stop trying, there will always be CHALLENGES.

To diminish the CHALLENGES you must not deny that you have been CHALLENGED. You can never stop CARING about the OPPOSITION of the CHALLENGER. You must study the COMPOSITION of the CHALLENGES placed before you. You must rise above your CHALLENGES and your CHALLENGER. Once you have address your CHALLENGES, whatever you have been CHALLENGED with or whomever you have been CHALLENGED by will lead you on a path to CARE FOR OTHERS. LIFE IS our GREATEST CHALLENGE. THIS IS HARD YARD UNIVERSITY. THE CHALLENGES IN LIFE CAN MAKE THIS YARD HARD.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

Smokelbg Life Class__ Dedicated to Oprah

It has taken me a long TIME to get here. I’m so grateful and very appreciative to share my EXTENSION of QUALITY of LIFE with the world. To all the innovative masterminds that have allowed me to reach millions of people by internet, Thank You.

I was puzzled when so many people became frustrated with Oprah because it took years for them to get on her show. Year after year has passed and I still haven’t got on her show. Did you hear me? HEll, I’m still ALIVE and it’s all GOOD. Year after Year!

Oprah has given out cars, trips, built schools, and funding to people all over the world to help their cause. Oprah is great a philanthropist. She has given hope to others and offered strategies, coping skills, and survival techniques.

She has laugh, cried, and worked all parts of her body to demonstrate the finest of NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS her show could offer. It is quite difficult to teach emotions. Words and body language gives out more information.

A lot of information is missed if a person has NLD Syndrome. Oprah turned herself inside out.  Oprah may not have realized the great gift she has given my son. Today I get the opportunity of my LIFE to share some of her TIME.

Think about it. The next TIME you pickup a TIME ADJUSTMENT SLIP at work, step outside the workforce, and think how much TIME you need to give to your LIFE. Think about who you want to share that TIME with. No matter how long it takes.

Here I am sitting in the hallway at OWN Studio. Here she comes! Good Morning Oprah, thank you for seeing me today. The last TIME Nicky NLD  (Nonverbal Learning Disability)and Sparky SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) were here they didn’t get a chance to see you. They waited a long TIME.

I was proud of them for waiting it out. Nicky NLD has a very difficult TIME sitting in a chair for an extended period due to his coordination. He much rather sit on the floor because he has a tendency to fall out of a chair.

People have called him a clumsy idiot and stupid because of his poor balance. Sparky SPD moaned and groaned about the fabric on the seats. He kept saying it was a strange odor in the hallway. At the TIME an elevator was being worked on.

The construction work was so loud.  Nicky NLD had to literally sit on Sparky SPD to keep him from going bunkers. Sparky SPD has a sensory processing disorder. We are quite familiar with Nicky NLD’s syndrome.

We just had a refresher Course In NLD on 10/17/2011. Let me bring the viewers up to date on Sensory Processing Disorder. SPD Foundation had a writing campaign to clear up some false information and hysteria about SPD. This took place back in March.

Their goal was to have 10,000 responses by March the 4th, to bring in positive responses, and the facts about SPD. At that TIME people could register their comments on Oprah’s Website and post their letters in the section listed for ZACH’s STORY.

Sensory Processing Disorder is a neurological disorder. Our brain processes input from our environment. All of our senses need to come out to the playground along with their 2 major cousins and play.

The 5 senses and 2 cousins need to integrate or act as a team. The 5 team players consist of our vision (sight), auditory (hearing), tactile (touch), olfactory (smell),and gustation (taste).

The 2 cousins vestibular (sense of balance and movement), proprioception (the sense of knowing where ones body movement in space) must come along for the ride. Hopefully with the wires connecting the ride will be smooth.

These are all separate wiring in the brain that needs to make a connection on the merry-go-round. If the connection is not made, there will be deficits in planning, organization, every day life skills, self-care, work and leisure activities.

The bad misfiring of wiring to the brain will cause extreme avoidance, distress, agitation, fear and confusion in the management to carry out ones life in their environment. Children diagnosed with SPD mental processing are normal and have normal health.

They do very well with others as long as their external environment isn’t busy or overwhelming. Children with SPD become very sensitive to outside factors and this depends on the way the environment looks, smells and sounds.

Our 5 senses and the 2 cousins need to hop on the merry-go-round so our body won’t have difficulty processing the information in our environment. This particular disorder has UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS, not caused by the parent, and is physiological.

Treatment for SPD may target life skills, social skills, and emotional behavior. There is some exceptional information on Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Visit http://www.spdfoundation.net and you are on your way.

Dr. Phil had done a show on a young man name Zach. Apparently Zach’s behavior was so out of control he made some attempts to hurt his parents. Smokelbg wrote a story on Getting Zach On the Right Track.

This was to give Zach and his parents support along with some strategies and coping skills. Smokelbg wanted the audience to understand ZACH’s behaviors. He was viewed by the audience as a violent and dangerous person with INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS.

The perception that people have when they are not educated about any type of disorder makes the individual appear to be so dangerous to them and society. This very perception and judgement leaves the individual ISOLATED and without a sense of community.

ISOLATION is the KISS of DEATH and invites a MENTAL DEATH to an individual which leaves the individual unable to RESURRECT oneself. Those who are misjudged encounters, bullying, sexual, social, emotional, and physical abuse.

RESURRECTION from this grave site may be very hard to achieve if the individual has been stripped of their self-esteem and self-confidence. The body, once it loses hope and sense of purpose, will lose self-determination and cease to exist.

This grave site has now become a permanent address. Smokelbg wrote a story called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep_NLD Mother’s Prayer when you get the TIME please go back and review this story. It is posted at https://nldrecognition.wordpress.com.

I chose 5 questions from Oprah’s LIFE CLASS that I felt it was very important to share with the WORLD.

1.) What is it really that I’m supposed to be doing with my LIFE?

a.) Teaching individuals to PAY ATTENTION, helping individuals to RECOGNIZE the importance of TIME and how important it is to RESPECT TIME by cherishing and RESPECTING THE QUALITY of their LIFE.

b.) Helping individuals understand the importance of Validation.

c.) Giving Recognition to the Unrecognized- Nonverbal Learning Disability that has been overlooked by our society for 41 years.

d.) Making people aware that NLD Syndrome’s, a neurological disorder with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR is mirrored through the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS of people who can make the CHOICE.

e.) Writing stories, books, so NLD Syndrome is simplified/individuals will not find the information intimidating and will seek help.

f.) As a cancer survivor, I want to motivate individuals to LIVE BEYOND THE PINK.

2.) What is your gut telling you right now? What will you do about it?

a.) People are paying attention, I can hear it through their words, body language, and even what they wear.

b.) I am doing it right now by reaching out to people and getting the information out there.

3.) What are you grateful for?

a.) Being able to take whatever adversity in life and use it as a teaching tool.

b.) Having a masterful mentor and educator, my son, who has taught me whatever I CAN DO–DO.

c.) Breathing on a mirror, seeing my breath, my LIFE.

4.) What is the pain that you thought you would not survive and what got you through it?

a.) The greatest pain was loving someone more than I love myself. When I was diagnosed with cancer I realized at that moment I may not have enough love for myself to save MY OWN LIFE.

b.) When you look into the eyes of your children, family, friends, and see the fear that they have for YOUR LIFE, it all changes. The fight has begun. You want them to know you will do your best to fight back. There is enough love left to pull it off.

As your legs swing over the edge of the hospital bed and you await for the test results to roll in, you can see the NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION at its PEAK. The silence in the room is unbearable. The body language will reveal all.

Whatever QUALITY of TIME that was designated I wanted to LIVE and LOVE MYSELF from this day FORWARD.

5.) If you were giving your last lecture what would be your best piece of advice for appreciation of life?

a.) I hope I have lived my LIFE in such a manner that even when I can no longer dress myself, feed myself, or bath myself someone will try to HELP ME near the END. Even in the last days of those final hours I will know, feel the love, respect, and appreciation for those who are there to mourn me. I would ask for a pillow and my mirror so I could prop my body up and say to everyone present in the room, ” I did not have to die alone.”

I would breathe on the mirror and know I had moved FORWARD from that MOMENT ON.

Smooth Operator

I tried to catch up with you the other day. The pace was too much for me. It felt like a marathon. My legs are so much shorter. Just when I thought I had caught up with your stride, my body hit pay dirt. You left me hanging off the rail wishing I had a bottle of Primestine Mist. One thing about it, you were dressed to impress. The navy blue suit you wore was raising hell and the lavender tie set it off. The look on your face was serious. Your arms swung out evenly from side to side. It didn’t matter how many emergencies the city had, you looked as though you were ready to put them all out. Are you wearing your Gasoline Drawers?

Every person you encountered on the streets was given a strong handshake. Your smile came bursting through. Words of hope were given to all the people who felt beaten down by the economy. Then all of a sudden you sat down on the curb in your nice suit. Do you think Eric Cantor or Paul Ryan would have given an uplifting curb service speech to the people in their high dollar cha-ching suit? Don’t answer!

Wherever you were headed it didn’t seem important anymore. You were answering questions about concerns of jobs, infrastructure, voters suppression, and the Big 3(Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid). An old lady appeared from out of nowhere. Silence came over the crowd. You looked directly in her eyes and you reached out and held her hand. Then you said, “How can I help you?” She responded, “You have helped me.” You are learning to ask the questions. Inclusions makes you a part of us.

Sitting here among the people you have included yourself. The Republicans tried to divide you from WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION. You have not let Pride override the welfare of the People. The Republicans tried to make the American people feel in taking out the dictators, it was only your victory. WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION understood it was a victory for all. You are starting to learn from your MISTAKES. Achievement comes with ACKNOWLEDGING your MISTAKES and taking RESPONSIBILITY for your MISTAKES. You have shown the American People deference.Through all the criticism you did not let your head drop below the water. The eternal flame burns deep inside of you. The Human Factor works in your favor. You have remained HUMANE.

The Presidents before you made mistakes. The PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS have taken it to a new level of mistakes. Herman Cain is the cousin of the other mother, Oscar OCD, who is always entertaining the NO NO THOUGHTS. Go back and refresh your memory. Oscar OCD was in EASTER UNDER THE UMBRELLA_FOR NLD. Oscar OCD always referred to his little cousin Herman, as Captain Nasty McNuts. Tyrone Tourettes, the cousin of Bobby Tourettes, thought it meant Herman liked McNUGGETS. AH NO! I don’t think so.

Strange that HERMAN grew up in the Restaurant Business. Since he made his POKEMAN SPEECH he probably need to call PICACHOO to the RESCUE. The next cartoon character he might want to be is a TRANSFORMER. Yes, Herman Cain is more than meets the eye. He is the original DECEPTICON along with the other PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS. Starscream, Herman Cain, cannot be trusted. He is always trying to find a way to overthrow Megatron, Rick Perry. Sounds like this is playing in the media right about now.

Megatron, Rick Perry, is at Lowes picking up paint for his METEORITES which is all wrong. Sentinel Prime, Mitt Romney, has switched sides and his numbers still didn’t move in the polls. This is the perfect world for Mitt Romney.

He has so many characters to TRANSFORM into. If I was Herman Cain I would stay with the TRANSFORMERS. He’s going to need a hideout within himself and a new theme song. No one will ever notice the White 1999 MONTE CARLO is Herman Cain in the junk yard. The sign will read We BUY, SELL, and OWN previous DECEPTICONS by the Koch Brothers. In Training Day, Denzel Washington drove the Black MONTE CARLO. Herman Cain is NO Denzel.

Now it is TIME to develop a trusted loyal Crew so you won’t look distant or be isolated from your base. Steve Israel, Head of the Democratic Congressional Committee can whip the Democrats into shape. Lean to the side of the strong democrats who use the media. In Smokelbg Tweets she gives her thumbs up to Bernie Sanders, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

We can’t leave out Barney Franks and Chuck Schumer, the Progressive/Liberal Democrats. You got the Ohio Players, not the singing group, the Democrats in Ohio. Sherrod Brown and Marcy Kaptur would be an excellent team players.

The DEMOCRATS need to speak out and be compassionate about their leader. You have come a very long way. We can see your growth. Your message has gotten stronger. Son, I ain’t stopped BELIEVING in you. So you better not stop BELIEVING. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. BELIEVE IN YOUR PURPOSE. BELIEVE IN YOUR VISION. BELIEVE you are a SMOOTH OPERATOR.

Another voice shoots out from the crowd. SMOOTH OPERATOR, the REPUBLICANS are totally thrown off course. Their hatred is letting people around our nation and other nations know they have RESPECT only for the BENJAMIN’S BABY. All this business about your job ratings in the polls is at 40% is a bunch of sardines. Just think if we had Muammar Gaddafi for 42 years. Instead we have Charles and David Koch causing havoc. We need to occupy their headquarters.

Who cares about those numbers? What polls are they reporting from? It sounds like Fox News statistics. Their math is way off the charts. They never do their research. We all know Bill O’Reilly is never WRONG. I do like Greta Van Susteren, Sheppard Smith, Geraldo Rivera, and Chris Wallace. Geraldo Rivera barbecues BILL O’Reilly’s butt. Geraldo is the chef of Burnt Ends. Watch out Bobby Flay!

Chris Wallace broke down and told John Stewart that Fox News is Conservative. John Stewart of the DAILY SHOW keeps his Gasoline Drawers on and uses his flame thrower to set Fox News on fire. Fox News thinks this is the story of ROOTS 999. They made a lot of people have a “What The Hah Hell” moment. I guess Herman Cain is their Black. “What the Hah Hell” do they mean by your black/my black. Let’s send a friendly reminder to FOX NEWS letting them know that Slave Days Are Over.

Who do they really have for a Candidate? A young lady’s voice in the crowd rang out. With everything the Republicans have done to you, I would have blown a gasket. SMOOTH OPERATOR smiles and replies, “I need YOUR support.” War within Wars are no good. I am here for the People. The losses have made me gain great knowledge and great strength. I have Learned and Transformed. The past is just that, the past. The Moment is Now. We will continue to Press On. I will not be discouraged by Congress, the Republicans, and the TEA PARTY. The REPUBLICANS reading this will say I did not answer the question. We have to stop BLAMING. We need to Start MAINTAINING our government.

There are TIMES when we take Action, the Words are fulfilled. There are TIMES when we take Words and we may Fail to carry out the Action. Remember the word has been “NO.” Remember the Action was not carried out. Remember to do the Math. Remember that only 4 Democrats voted against the AMERICAN JOB ACT. The young lady asked, Who were the 4 Democrats? An elder man steps up and starts calling out names. It was them old tired Conservative Blue Dog Democrats. Roll Call Sister!

It was Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Senator John Tester of Montana, and Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas. I tell you what Sister, I can Remember 4 names. Baby Girl, all 49 REPUBLICANS voted against the bill. Now it is gonna be hard Remembering all 49 Knucklehead REPUBLICANS. Just Remember the Herman Cain Theory, 4+5=9 and you take out the (+5=) and you got 49. Maybe he will get 49 years for the 4 women he sexually harassed.

Why did it take 4 women and not just 1 for these charges to be acknowledged and taken seriously? Is it possible that a SUPREME COURT JUSTICE may have slipped through the cracks? Is it okay to label the poor and middle class behavior? Why are we not acknowledging the behaviors of the rich and high-profile government officials? Go back and review GOT NO TIME TO BE DISABLED in the March Archives. You will find an answer.

A young boy around the age of 6 breaks through the crowd. His presence breaks the tension. “Are you who I think you are?” Somebody said you are the President of the United States. I told them No Way! You are the man with the plan. The man who understand. The man with the whole world in the palm of his hands. You are a SMOOTH OPERATOR. He jumps into PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’s lap and gives him a big hug. He lifts the young boy into the air. “I will keep my Promise.”

ADVISORY ALERT:It is hard for people diagnosed with NLD Syndrome and other exceptionalities to come off as SMOOTH OPERATORS. Some may lack the social communication skills, inability to read social cues, and interpreting body language. Others may have trouble with personal hygiene, and cocktail party speech. They have difficulty interpreting facial expression. It is hard for them to initiate a conversation or end a conversation. Their social judgement is poor. NLDers are not sure where his or her space is and cannot judge the distance(space invaders). This is due to visual-spatial organization. They are labeled by others as annoying, ill-mannered, rude, discourteous, and smart “aleck.”

People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome cannot detect hidden meanings of language and social interactions aren’t detected There will be many outbursts, social blunders, misinterpretations, and misjudgments. NLDers end up being the victims and are victimized because they are naively trusting. They DO NOT understand a person that is deceitful, cunning, or who manipulates others. They have faulty spatial perception only getting half of the picture.

Their behaviors are misinterpreted by our society as being INTENTIONAL. Their neurological and nuero-behavior right hemisphere disorder is UNINTENTIONAL. Sexual Harassment is a term that is very vaguely defined. It happens a lot in the workplace. It entails social situations, making of unwanted sexual advances, and obscene remarks. How would it be possible to charge a person with NLD SYNDROME with sexual harassment if they have these characteristics and traits? People with NLD SYNDROME will not have a clue to what sexual harassment or any other type of harassment is due to the nature of their neurological disorder and their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS.

My advice to all parents is find a neuro-psychologist or psychiatrist that has had years of knowledge, training, and experience in the field of Nonverbal Learning Disability. It is very essential that you have your child tested early. This diagnosis has been overlooked for 41 years and has not been placed on the DSM4. This is a great disservice to millions of people who are looking for answers for their children/adults. When AUTISM, ASPERGER, ADD, ADHD, PDD-NOS, OCD, TOURETTES SYNDROME, ANXIETY DISORDER, TIC DISORDER, just doesn’t add up, PLEASE turn YOUR ATTENTION to NLD SYNDROME

How many TIMES have people with NLD SYNDROME diagnosed/undiagnosed been falsely accused, misjudged, socially isolated, and punished repeatedly because society has failed to be educated about this neurological disorder?
How many people are locked away in institutions, given a counterproductive treatment plan, or heavily medicated because they have gone undiagnosed, the diagnosis is ignored/is hidden or the diagnoses were not understood?

How many people with this diagnosis have been falsely accused of a crime they didn’t commit or understand it was a crime due to the nature of their disability and their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? How many people with this diagnosis have been incarcerated? How many lives have been lost and our society will continue to lose due to the secondary diagnosis of anxiety, stress, depression, and panic attack? Think about it. I hope this will help millions of people.

How can our society continue to violate the HUMAN and CIVIL RIGHTS of people with this diagnosis? This is in the DEFENSE for NLD SYNDROME. NLD Mom/cancer survivor

Refreshers Course In NLD

There are many viewers who are coming to this blog for the first TIME. Here we are 10 months later and unless you started from the January Archives you probably don’t have a clue about NLD Syndrome. I could tell you to go back and read the stories in the January Archives. It’s really Time for a refresher course on NLD. NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) is a developmental disability that affects the right-hemisphere of the brain. NLDers process information differently because they miss a lot of information. This contributes to misinterpretation of the world around them. Without the whole piece of the puzzle it causes them to act out inappropriately or unexpectedly.

If you can’t understand the tone of a persons voice, give eye contact, or read the person’s body language there are going to be several misunderstandings. This is a neuro-behavioral disorder and the person with NLD has UNINTENTIONAL behaviors. They are NOT EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED.

This neurological disorder goes UNRECOGNIZED and unattended by professionals, teachers, parents and society. Individuals who are diagnosed with NLD Syndrome demonstrate a mature vocabulary/very language proficient, rote memory skills (mechanical, habitual, repetition), and an excellent reading ability. People with this disorder can have difficulty interacting with others, transitioning to new settings, adapting to changes, working with new people, and trouble with writing/fine motor coordination. Although reading skills are exemplary, abstract concepts need to be explained in detail. Individuals with NLD Syndrome have difficulty understanding metaphors (a figure of speech), emotional nuances (may not be able to understand the expression on a persons face, sound of their voice, or body language), multiple levels of meanings, relationship issues. My advice to you if you are talking with a person with NLD Syndrome, give a simple description, explicit explanations, and be very patient.

The three areas that encompass or surround NLD Syndrome is Motoric, Visual-Spatial/visual perceptual, and Social. Lets start with Motoric. This deals with dexterity: task of manipulating small objects, writing, typing, buttoning buttons. Riding a bike is grueling. Tying shoes may take years. It is hard for them to catch their balance, secure their equilibrium or bounce back with their balance. NLDers really work hard to master athletic skills. Sitting and eating on the floor is preferable.

I hope you’ve got other silverware because NLDers may resist eating with a fork or spoon. They are not interrogating you. NLDers full-fledged learning mode is when they are asking questions. They have problems on the left side of their body. Psycho-motor skills involve the thinking through process of physical movement such as coordination, speed, manipulation of the object, agility, dexterity, strength and grace. Bottom line, if you are still holding the ball, you are thinking about it for an extended period of TIME, or trying to figure out “What The Hah Hell” to do with the ball, you have poor psycho motor coordination.

You are not going to be on DANCING WITH THE STARS. You are no MARIO ANDRETTI, and there will be NO KAREEM ABDUL JABAAR SKY HOOK. The key is it comes easy or more automatic and you have not spent so much time processing out every little detail. Are you still sitting in the parking lot? Are you trying to figure out why you keep getting so many driving violations? Driving is major coordination. NLDers can succeed in these tasks but it may take a very long TIME and please be PATIENT.

In the area of visual-perception/visual-spatial, people with NLD have difficulty understanding and reading maps, charts, graphs, left, right, drawing complex figures, and understanding higher math such as geometry. Thank God for GPS, color by number,etch of sketch, and all the wonderful apps that are put on the magnificent IPAD for learning. STEVE JOBS and his wonderful team revolutionized the world. NLDers talk their way through situation. They are auditory-verbal learners and they need to hear what is being processed. A blue-tooth solves this problem of everyone staring when NLDers are processing out loud. From bumping into people, struggling with concept formation, and not getting the whole picture, they have the market cornered.

Social miscueing causes problems interpreting body language, and facial expression. People with NLD have problems in this area. Sometimes they stand too close (space invaders), or too far away when engaging in a conversation. It is hard for them to understand how to start a conversation or for them to end the conversation. If you can get them to deal with situation in a practical, sensible, and realistic manner versus philosophical or theoretical manner you are batting a thousand (pragmatic skills). They have outbursts, are labeled annoying , or want to get all the attention. NLDers just won’t let go, they hold on, have many social blunders, are abrupt/have knife cutting responses, and they have difficulty thinking creatively or abstractly. They have problems with identifying faces or reading the person’s face, interpreting gestures/deciphering body posture, An NLDer doesn’t change their speech, have a monotone voice, and constantly misjudge or misinterpret what is being put before them or said to them.

NLDers have attentional deficits causing difficulty in coping with over-stimulating or distracting environments and requiring them to have limited distractions and assistance in focusing themselves. They have difficulty in performing multiple tasks simultaneously causing them to need to do one thing at a TIME and LIMIT the amount of information they can take in at the same TIME(They CANNOT follow multiple commands given at once). Organizational skills are a huge problem area with NLDers. They have a very hard TIME organizing material on their own. Assistance is needed in the area of writing outlines, sequencing/order, planning, prioritizing, transitioning from one idea or aspect of a project/problem to another. Does this remind you of anyone? Feel free to go back and review the January Archives.

DEDICATED: Everyone across AMERICA, take a closer look at this diagnosis. I wonder why the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION(APA), with 38,000 psychiatrists under their UMBRELLA failed to put NLD SYNDROME on the map after 41 years?

Why did the APA see fit to enlist diagnoses, such as sex addiction or internet addiction or other impertinent diagnoses that let people ESCAPE from being held ACCOUNTABLE for their INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS?

Dr. PHIL, DR. DREW, DR. OZ, DEEPAK CHOPRA and many other specialist in the field of medicine and psychiatry would probably agree with me. Too many people are severely hurt and have died from not being properly diagnosed or overlooked altogether.

Should the APA be held accountable for leaving Nonverbal Learning Disability(NLD), a neurological disorder with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS off of their diagnostic manual? They are well aware that people who are diagnosed with this disorder can suffer from severe depression. Why did the APA stop testing? Why has there not been more information distributed on NLD Syndrome? Has the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION been corrupted by money and politics to protect their funding?

Is the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION trying to close the GAP on INTENTIONAL versus UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? Or would it be our GOVERNMENT? Our government has been very dysfunctional. Take a look at the contenders for PRESIDENCY. Look even closer at the GOP, REPUBLICANS, TEA PARTY, BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS and some members of the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCAS. We can tell from watching the debates the front-runners have serious problems. The weakest links will once again be controlled by the 1%. Who’s brain will be used if one of the contenders is chosen for President? Our JUSTICE SYSTEM has been very UNJUST. Our Supreme Court System is totally out of BOUNDS and off the Court. Our Constitution needs to be revamped.

Think about it AMERICA! Something is seriously wrong. Who should be held ACCOUNTABLE? Who is covering up?

Let Fathers Be Fathers

This experience is frightening for me. Our son has to go through a diagnostic evaluation to see if he has a learning disability. He was fine until he reached middle school then his grades begin to drop. The more things he had to do on his own he just didn’t seem to be able to get organize for his school work. I thought it was because his grandmother passed away. Quincy and his grandmother were so close. She practically raised him from a baby. His mother, Catherine, worked two jobs and her mother offered to help us out. JoAnn, Catherine’s mother, was a diabetic. I always felt my wife should quit one of her jobs so we could spend more time with Quincy. I didn’t mind making the sacrifice to work the extra hours. I wanted at least one parent to be with Quincy so he wouldn’t feel he was so alone. She was forced to quit one of the jobs after her mother died. I don’t know if she resented coming home.

I worked for the railroad. It was a fairly decent pay when I put in the extra long hours. Milton, a long time co-worker and my best friend had a son diagnosed with autism. He shared many stories about his son. Milton’s stories frightened me because they always seemed to be so closely connected to my life. It appeared that Milton and his ex-wife had problems regarding their son being autistic. Later I learn Milton’s ex-wife had trouble with any women coming around her son or dating Milton.

Milton had gained full custody of his son. He was very proactive in his son’s life. Milton had started an autism support group. He had invited me several times. It always made me feel as if Milton was so many steps ahead of me. He continued to ask me to come and participate in the Autism group. Some parts of me wanted to attend but the other half of me was afraid. For some reason I could see part of my life being like Miltons. It felt like the movie Face Off.

Catherine and I had trouble in our marriage. She blamed herself for not being there when her mother passed away. We had problems before her mother ever came to stay. Her mother’s presence helped relieve a great amount of stress in our household.

JoANN was so patient and kind with Quincy. She was Quincy’s rock. Catherine and I were so tired after working so many hours. It left us no room to deal with Quincy’s problems. It didn’t allow him the ability to process when he became angry and frustrated. JoAnn would always tell Catherine, Let Fathers be Fathers and Deal With It. Let the boy’s father deal with his behavior. Catherine was quick-tempered and lacked patience. It would make Quincy’s behavior become very explosive.

More and more Quincy’s behavior started changing and he begin to sleep a lot. I became greatly concerned because I thought Quincy was slipping into a state of depression. Catherine said Quincy just wanted attention and he was just lazy and she didn’t have the time to be bother with his foolishness. Where did that response come from? When I ask her about her statement, she glared at me with her lip twisted and stormed out of the room. I guess that was my answer. We had began to argue more frequently.

I was all for the evaluation but Catherine would get upset every time I would try to talk about it. We were getting closer to our evaluation date. Catherine had almost totally shutdown. The moments of silence were killing me and I just couldn’t take it anymore. Every time I would try to discuss how we could help Quincy she would bring up her father and how he would deal with the situation. Catherine was very close to her father. At the age of 17, her father died on his way to work of a stroke. She always compared me to her dad. At first I didn’t mind. I kind of thought it was an honor until I talked to JoAnn. Before Catherine’s mother died we had this conversation about JoAnn’s husband. He wasn’t the man my wife made him out to be.

In the heat of the moment I tried to get Catherine to talk. When she mentioned her dad my head spun around like I was the star in the Exorcist. The next thing I knew I had revealed what Catherine’s mother had told me about her dad. At that moment I realized from the look on my wife’s face she never knew. My heart-felt as if it was going to come through my chest. I would never say or do anything to hurt Catherine. It was all over. Catherine ran into the bedroom and started grabbing her clothes out of the closet. I was trying to prevent her from leaving and I don’t remember what happened after that. I have tried to relive that moment in the bedroom a thousands times. The only thing I do remember is I was trying to guard my face. When I looked down, my shirt was bloody. From the mirror in the bedroom I could see scratches all over my body. I called Milton to see if he could pick Quincy up from school. He never asked for any explanation.

Everything was going through my mind. Did she call the police? When were the police going to arrive? Whatever happened in that bedroom, Catherine never came back. The police never showed up. Who said that men don’t cry. I cried for days and days. I love my wife but we always seem to communicate through other people. That did not help our marriage at all. Months had passed and finally I got a call from one of Catherine’s long time friends from New York. Beverly told me Catherine was granting me full custody of Quincy. Before I could ask about Catherine, I was listening to the dial-tone. Just when I thought I had pulled myself together the crying came back. Here was my son asking all these questions and I had no answers. Quincy and I had to move on.

Quincy did get evaluated and he was diagnosed with NLD Syndrome. I have full custody of Quincy now. He often asks me if he was the cause of his mother leaving. He wonders will she ever come back. I wonder the same. Catherine and I never really communicated what was on our minds and in our hearts. We were both too young to have children. I am seeking professional help. There is so much I need to work through. I don’t want to be an angry parent. This isn’t just about my life. I need to be sure I don’t damage Quincy’s life. He has a lot to deal with. I will be right there for him. I have a lot to learn about NLD Syndrome. Milton is helping me to set up a support group and build a website. Yes, I am afraid but I will keep my promise to Quincy’s grandmother. Let Fathers be Fathers and continue to advocate for their children’s needs. Let Fathers be Fathers and understand the social and emotional part of their children’s life. Let Fathers Be Fathers and show the love, support, and embrace their child’s weakness just as they would rally around their strengths. JoAnn is probably looking down on me and Quincy today. As JoAnn would say, Let Fathers be Fathers and Deal With It.

DEDICATION: This story is dedicated to a young man who had to deal with it. He has done an exceptional job and is very supportive of his family and children. He would make any mother proud of how he is handling his life and the lives of family and friends he has touched. This one is for you, Willie Watson.
