Wind Beneath My What!

Nanna Boo Who, Guess who’s here. Oh My God. Get on in here!   Let Nanna’s age-old eyes peep at you. I can’t believe what a fine young lady you have become. My Grand-baby has really shot up from a string bean to a luscious young sweet potato. Nanna Boo Who isn’t that supposed to be OMG! No, whose writing this story. Okay! What brings you to my neck of the hood. Nanna can’t you say the neck of your woods? Nanna could say a lot of things but the last time I did your mother got a whiff of what Mr. Roger’s taught in his neighborhood when he got pissed off.  Don’t you go saying the word pissed off to your MaMa. Grandma! Oh Lawd! What did I say wrong? What did I forget? Whenever you call me out as Grandma instead of Nanna Boo Who something has gone south. Did you forget my birthday?  Child If Nanna forget anything it would not be your birthday. I forgot my WordPress password and the support was wonderful. It has been so long since I had a new password. Thank You WordPress! 🙂 Give Credit Where Credit is Due.

I went to your favorite website, Etsy.com to buy you a gift. As you say, “Dare to be different and Dare to own it.” Who taught me that? The one and only Nanna Boo Who. I would have loved if you baked my favorite German Chocolate Cake. Well, I did better than that. I ordered you a cake from Dean and Deluci. Nanna, you are all over the grid. Sho-nuff!  I would have gotten the cake from Yummly.com but they were fresh out. Baby girl  I really appreciate you standing there with those big pretty hazel eyes and saying to Nanna, “It would taste better if you baked it.”  First off Nanna Boo Who there will be more TIME for your days to get things done that you need to get done. Second, I’m so glad and proud I can come over here and talk to you about things that are  happening in my life.  Third, Nanna Boo Who, thank you for teaching me the Ist, 2nd, and 3rd rule to help organize my thoughts. The greatest gift shared is you accepting me and still being able to communicate with me as if you were my age. 🙂 Nope! Nope! I don’t want to be that age again.

So my Grand-baby is Sweet Sixteen. Girl you are getting old. Step up here and give me a big hug and kiss. What do those little ears and big mind want to learn today. Nanna Boo Who,  what is your spin on the song Wind Beneath My Wings?  I never did like that song. Maybe I got the wrong meaning but that song rub me the wrong way. As women growing up we weren’t taught to dream or nurture the thoughts of our ambitions.  Nanna I thought you was going to say back in the day. No, I like being in the day, with the moment being now, and moving FORWARD.  I really hate those Uncle Lawrence stories. This is a new era and I want to see my granddaughter stand on her own two feet and not be under someones D*** wing. Sorry about that baby girl. That was a slip of the lip. Now when you go home make sure you don’t trip and use that word because your MaMa will flip the script.

There’s no boogeyman in the closet.  You can dream and shoot for becoming the next  female President. You can become Lady Braveheart of Massachusetts like Senator Elizabeth Warren, or First Lady Michelle Obama (Queen Guinevere of 2016) who took her husband place when he leaves office. What a dream!  There are so many doors opening and the struggle has been horrendous for women. Baby-girl it is so many women out there who are Stumping and Trumping the yard with such greatness. Grandma you forgot that I don’t dream. No I didn’t. There is no need to call Iyanla Vanzant to fix your life.  How will I work around imagining my greatness?  The same way we have always worked with your unique abilities. We will point it out, pour on the concrete ideas. It gets even better. We will StumbleUpon new ideas, FaceBook it to your friends. I don’t have many friends. It is a new day of communication and being on the Grid will help.  If you are not comfortable, there is a way to monitor any strange comment by blocking or de-friending.  Also clean out your profile. Tweet out your ideas or face-off with SnapChap. We can build the biggest collage of your dreams on PinInterest and InStagram.  Apple laid the groundwork for a new way of educating children/adults.  You know Nanna Boo Who got your back. I must continue to keep up so I can leave the doors of communication open. Nanna Boo Who thank you for continuing to learn and grow with me. I see your white hair but I can’t ever see you growing old. That is what modern technology does for the soul.

Baby girl we have a contender who thinks he is Julius Caesar. We all know how that history lesson ended. Someone needs to Tweet to this guy and tell him he is not the dressing on the salad.  Mr. Cesspool of Intentional Behaviors is straight up berserk for ever thinking he can become the President of the United States. This is his dream but for his constituents it is a real nightmare.  He Tweets all the time. Just think of all the people under the wing of this guy. Concretely he would rule all, incarcerate common sense, banish dreams and reasonable ideas forever. Maybe I got the song Wind Beneath My Wings Wrong. For you on your birthday I always want you to DREAM the way we have taught you using all the tools available to help you become successful. Grandma never wants you to become the backup generator for another person dreams.  Grandma don’t play that energize bunny Sh**. You are allowed to have and be motivated by your own dreams concretely or not.  Society tend to crush dreams and want people to settle for mediocre things. As long as you have breath in your body you will play more than one role in life.  Speaking of Wings, Nanna Boo Who did throw down your favorite dish. Guess! By the way I did not forget the Louisiana Hotsauce. Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

 

 

 

Unforgettable__The List

It felt as though I was humming to the tune of Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable. Was it Lee Major who played in the FALL GUY? If you are not sure going forward in making a decision don’t forget to reach into your pockets and pull out the TRUSTED ADULT. Your business should be Comfort Zone LLC so you can sing Alicia Keys, Diary/Secrets. We will hope for the best and may your secrets fall into the hands of someone you can truly say, “Your Secrets Are Safe With Me.” It won’t be Chris Christie. Baby! Are you about to be fired? Please tell me Chris Christie was not trying to sing Nappy Roots song, Po Folks. You know the part where he states he has lived in Jersey and he will croak in Jersey bit. Right! Right! Now he is beginning to understand Tupac, All Eyes On You. BUSTED! The Hawk, The Almighty Hawk, Mr. Wind has caught your back on the way out the door. Lou Rawls knew what he was talking about when he song Dead End Street. I guess being a contender for the Presidency looked quite appealing. The Governor might need to change course with his dream. If the General name keeps popping up, SAMSON and DELILAH (Bridget Kelly) will star in their next movie. You can call it Rockin’ With The Rockerfellows__ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT for the real Land Slide. Chris Christie is not a Grand Guardian. He guards his pockets only.

Who can be considered a Grand Guardian? It could be your momma, your daddy, brother, sister, close friend, relative, minister, an attorney, a person you TRUST with your story. The Media has become quite an effective choice and has become very popular. Hell! It sounds like SUPERFLY. Some people have had success with Twitter. A wonderful example is the young lady who Tweeted out 3 Rochester Teens standing on the sidewalk waiting for the bus who were about to get arrested for blocking traffic. Happy! Happy! Happy! These young BROTHERS coach was their Grand Guardian. Lawrence O’Donnell threw down on this exclusive story ARRESTED ROCHESTER TEENS SPEAKS OUT. You go Lawrence O’! This is what I call true Arrested Development. I like their songs too. Go ahead Mr. Wendal. Pay attentions because we are beginning to see some new strategies to save ones A…

Whew! I’m so glad these three young Brothers were not Andy Asperger, Nathan NLD, and Tommy Tourette Syndrome. The Flip Side Of The Chart will not stand a chance. These Brothers wouldn’t be Rockin’ with the Rockerfellows. They aren’t the affluent. Who will get the shaft? The middleman has been cut. Mental Institutions are not much of an option. Moving Forward with modern technology and the Winans forecasting Teddy Riley’s Time To Make That Change it is definitely a New Jack Swing. Bottom line just make sure you are not standing in front of the Grand Jury. This is not to be confused with your Grand Guardian. Well, depending on the verdict. If it rides in your favor, Hallelujah! Can I Get An Amen Or Not?

Steve Kornacki was pushing the interrogation factor. Keep asking question until you get the right answers. If you are not sure about the answer find your Grand Guardian, fact checker, or the most reliable News Media that is BUSTING LOOSE with THE TRUTH and throwing down like Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers. Google It! Bing It! SING Ya-HOOO-ooo! Check this out. When my girl was a guest on Up with Steve Kornacki you notice Dawn Zimmer, the mayor of Hoboken had her Alicia Keys Diary/Secrets. I just want all my Brothers and Sister over on the Flip Side Of The Chart to remember this precious strategy. If you struggle with writing, the keyboard on the computer may give those fingers some ease. If you can’t put your thoughts on paper get a tape recorder. Go to your FACEBOOK wall where you can share or make it public or private. For those of you who can get to the point in 140 words or less and is just D.. short-winded, Twitter is for you. For those of you who has more to say, Do Your Thang on FACEBOOK. Don’t throw your conversation E-Mails away. Think of it this way. E stands for Evidence and it might save your A… one day or you may get burned depending on what is in the E-mail. Thank GOD for modern technology and what it has brought to our ever-changing world. Change is the fuel in which a mule refuses to move forward. The mule is cool with the acceptance of stubbornness. Jack-Ass!

Where is that List? Unbelievable! It was right here all the Time. Check Bobby D out. Man! Look at the sweatshirt Bobby D wore to school. Back in the day we called it a cheat sheet. Your A… was out partying instead of studying for the test. The key to scoring on the test was knowing where to position yourself if you’re going to get the majority of the right answers. The person on the opposite end of the spectrum know it is a cheat sheet. Intentional behavior is about to make its move. The person on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART doesn’t realize it is a cheat sheet. Interrogation TIME! Bobby D is pissed because my Boi on the Flip Side is asking all these question and drawing attention to Bobby D shirt. What! So the teacher wants to get her test on. Hold Up! Hold Up! She has to find out why the commotion is in motion. As she approaches Bobby D the answer just jumps out. Bobby D thinks my Boi has snitched. Bobby D is removed from the classroom. Here we go with the “Meet me at 3:30 your A.. is mind.” WHOA! Mr. Intentional Behavior is not going to pass the test either because he was out with Bobby D and he invented the shirt. Did we make any friends today? On top of it all somebody is about to get thrashed.

A person who can’t focus and trouble with concept formation can hang it up. Do you know how hard it is for some people to put their ideas in a group. Comparing and contrasting is horrible. Did you actually think knowing what is relevant and irrelevant was going to happen right this minute. No! It will take TIME, patient, and a person who is willing to be the grownup in the room to say they understand. Are you willing to teach and teach and teach? On the Flip Side Of The Chart there are so many people who are so willing to learn. Stop being HATERS and frustrating the great minds who processes information differently. It must be understood on the Flip Side Of The Chart Thomas Edison light bulb will take a minute to be turned on. When it comes on the glow is Awesome! We will not roll out the fight on Christopher Columbus and my BOI Lief Erikson. Discovery just ain’t our thang. It is cool to give credit where credit is due. We just need concrete information and the TRUTH to be square. Do not take the ZOO-ZOOs and WHAMS-WHAMS away. You are going to piss the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART off. I hope you don’t think making an example out of people you fail to teach are going to be receptive to punishment. Come on! Take responsibility. You don’t think when Bob McDonnell, formal governor of Virginia got his ZOO-ZOOs and WHAM-WHAMs taken away he wasn’t pissed. INTENTIONAL! MHP, the price of chicken has gone up.

Unforgettable! Please tell me when you hear about NLD Syndrome you will be able to hold a decent conversation on the topic. If you know anyone who appears to be unique treat the person with dignity and respect. Your lightbulb might be screwed in too tight. Loosen up and adjust. Help create an inclusive environment for a BROTHER or a SISTER. Just a friendly reminder to let your A.. know a BROTHER and SISTER doesn’t means BLACK FOLKS ONLY (BFO). OKAY!

NLD Syndrome called Nonverbal Learning Disability is a developmental disability in which the individual demonstrates a mature vocabulary, rote memory skills, an excellent reading abilities. Who does this look like to you on the opposite end of the spectrum? Mr. so-called Normal! Hmmm! Children/Adults have difficulty interacting with others (same age peers or not), transitioning to new settings, working in different environments (whether or not it is at school or on the job), WHEREVER under the UMBRELLA, UMBRELLA, UMBRELLA… Stop it RHIANA! Working with anyone and anything NEW can cause a major BOO BOO in the world of NLD. It’s all good on the opposite end of the spectrum the GOP, Republicans, and Tea Partiers was totally out of touch and sync. NLD Syndrome Traded Places and it was not with Eddie Murphy. On the Flip Side Of The Chart it is called Work With Me Program. From where I’m sitting, WHOOP! WHOOP NLD Syndrome we are rooting for you. Sure NLD has problems with writing and fine motor skills. So did Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky. This dude from the opposite end of the spectrums had problems with his writing skills too. Hell, he decided to steal someone else’s work. What was wrong with his fingers? Right! Right!

NLDers has exemplary reading skills. So did Ted Cruz, Senator from Texas, with his Green Eggs and Ham BS. He totally misinterpreted the D.. story. People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome want to get it right. What can we say for this sucker IDIOT-OLOGY Ted Cruz? What did he achieve? Abstract concepts need to be explained in detail as the individual with NLD has a difficult TIME with understanding metaphors, emotional nuances, multiple levels of meaning and relationships issues. On the opposite end of the spectrum The Golden Globe Pussy Willow Award goes to Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, for his libido statement. Go Head Pimp Daddy Sugar! The second runner-up on the opposite end of the spectrum is State Senator Richard Black of Virginia for his belief that marital rape should not be a crime. This is not Joe Black’s brother and you definitely do not wish to meet him. You can find this article at Salon. By the way, Richard is living up to his name. Dick! Our third runner-up on the opposite in the spectrum is Foster Friess, Mr. Business Man Of The Year, with his aspirin still between his legs in his day and his mind only. There are so many HATERS on the opposite end of the spectrum. NLDers are not HATERS. What comes out their mouth is tough but the bottom-line is they can be redirected because they want to get it right. The HATERS on the opposite end of the spectra is caught in a Time Warp, Intent to do harm, love to fail, and do not wish to move FORWARD. Just give NLDers a description of abstract concepts. Make it simple and be patient. KISS 🙂 NLDers do not wish to fail and struggle with moving forward. It is a BIG D… difference.

1) NLDer have motor impairments causing difficulty in tasks that require dexterity, manipulations of small objects, and coordinated handling tasks such as writing, typing, buttoning buttons.

2) Attentional deficits causes people diagnosed with NLD Syndrome to have difficulty in coping with over-stimulating or distracting environments and requiring him/her to have limited distractions and assistance in focusing himself/herself.

Mayor Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto, Ontario Canada, demonstrated exactly what can happen to an NLDer on a regular day without the recreational drugs and booze. Strictly meaning bumping into people, accidentally mowing a person down and running head on into an object. Rob is a Space Invader and just didn’t know what to do with his big voluptuous body. Poster Baby Justin Beaver is not too far behind. Did you know Ted Cruz, Justin Bieber, and Rob Ford all came from Canada. Should it really mean anything? See, that is how stereotyping gets started. Cut the Sh.. out.

3) Performing multiple task simultaneously can possible Blow The Roof Off The Mother for NLDers. One thing at a TIME is good and limit the information you give on the task. Multiple commands are so counterproductive. On the opposite end of the spectrum this happen many TIMES with the GOP and Kill OBAMACARE. Ask the baby who has potty on himself and need their diaper change right away the response would be___SEE THERE. 😦

4) Organizing material on NLDers watch is the Beatles singing HELP I NEED SOMEBODY. I mean not just anybody. Go get the Brother or Sister some HELP with writing outlines, determining how to sequence/order and prioritize, planning, and transitioning from one idea or aspect of a project to another.

Help me LAWD! On the opposite end of the spectrum my BOI Chris Christie had A Whole Lotta Of Shakin’ Going On. He was not on the stage with Jerry Lee Lewis and The Outlaws. Will he be the next outlaw? Well, maybe he over-planned but he probably didn’t plan on this happening. Steve Kornacki, You Light Up My Life and I am singing George Clinton Flash Light. UP! UP!

5) Visual-Perception/Visual-spatial deficits. How a persons interpret what he/she sees, understanding the boundaries of their environment and the boundaries in a relationship. Do Not Cross The Line. Just explain to the person in the right tone if they are standing to close, if it flies over their head and they don’t get it. We don’t need to get in a shouting match. Be patient if the person is slow on gathering their thoughts. Explain to them information that is personal should not be shared on FACEBOOK. Stay out of the Abstract Zone and pour on the concrete. Please don’t go there with picture this. Do not say can you imagine. The response will be I can’t see a D.. thing. Can you? Just remember in order to put the pieces of the puzzle together get some gorilla glue because BABY you got some communicating to do. This will not take on the format of TWITTER (the 140 words or less). It is not happening. So gear up and get those jaws ready to do some talking. Parents do not get bog down or frustrated. Make it the happy moment TIME. Let your child/adult know you have a certain amount of TIME to spend on conversational skills and afterward you can party All Night Long just like Lionel Richie.

Are you lost Boo? You can’t read the map? Turn left on 68th street. Why are you turning right? Man! I’m in the car with a person who can’t tell their right from their left. It’s cool! I will drive the next TIME. Do not get into a WRESTLE-MANIA argument with an NLDer. Start singing Luther Vandross, Always and Forever. Make it clear it is okay to disagree. It doesn’t make either party right or wrong when it comes to a person’s opinion. How can you fail a survey? Facts are facts and make it clear you ask for their opinion. Say the right word so you can send the right message. To keep the NLDer from becoming frustrated, angry, and having those meltdowns. POINT IT OUT. Smokey Robinson did. I Am So Excited because I get this and I want you to get it too. Become a Pointer Sister or Pointer Brother. Ye-ah! Doctors spend a little more TIME checking out this area. Soooo I thought I would give it a lick-er-ty split. There is no one test to determine NLD SYNDROME. To all the parents out there, Heads Up! When Baby girl or Baby Boi can’t tie his/her shoe, ride a bike, trips and falls and nothing is in the way, don’t want to play with those LEGOS, takes forever to write, don’t seem to understand you are mom or dad and appears they are talking Sh.. to you, HOLD THE FORT DOWN. Beating a child is not the answer. The KEY is EDUCATION, DEDICATION, and making MEDICATION the last recourse to helping your child understand and cope with his Behaviors. Develop a plan not an A.. whipping.

Drawing complex figures, and trying to understand higher levels of math can be hard (dyscalculia). On the opposite end of the spectrum Paul Ryan gets the Award for Dyscalculia and his Forcible Rape statement. Let someone with NLD Syndrome make any of these scuzzy remarks and they will be up for grabs on all types of harassment or sexual harassment charges. To my NLDers don’t get frustrated. Listen to Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans, Count On Me and drink some hot tea. Feel better now. It is such a shame when the blame is place on NLDers and other exceptionalities who are born with neurological behaviors. NLDers are not emotionally disturbed and should not be ostracized, criticized, isolated, nor punished for their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS. Make sure everyone involved in Operation Road Hog gets punished. INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR!

6) Social Miscueing is where we need a real INTERPRETER. Interpreting the body languages is the monkey wrench found in your lunch bucket. Where is the lunch? Guess what? You are the lunch. NLDers get eaten alive because they cannot discern nonverbal cues. When you hear a person say they have a friend who doesn’t know where to start or end a conversation look out. If the conversation appeared to not make sense and was not simple or pragmatic I hope you are aware that you might be talking to Sarah Palin from the opposite end of the spectrum. She is the queen of Com-boo-very and Louie Gohmert, U.S. Representative from Texas, is the King of BS. NLders are winning the battle of Sanity from the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART.

So what if you have trouble recognizing faces, taking people to mean what they say, you Get Jiggy Wit It and the other person feel insulted. I’m quite sure Will Smith, from the opposite end of the spectrum had to Get Jiggy Wit It when people were all up in his business about his marriage and trying to drink his Kool-Aid. Sure you are going to have social blunders. The opposite end of the spectrum say gaffe. It was an error off the lips either way. Who will get punished? Right! Right! You guess it. It wasn’t because you are the Social Butterfly in your community or the Affluent one. As far as TRUSTING people and being NAIVE the opposite end of the spectrum racked up some points and ran away with the ball. Hey! They re-elected CHRIS CHRISTIE. I’m just saying!

7) It is TIME to take off the “Black and White” Tuxedo and break it down to the grey sweat suit. Grey yourself up so you can become flexible instead of having rigid ideas. Are you ready? Be like Guy and Let’s Chill.

Remember if you ever get called in the office on your job and the people are saying they just want FEEDBACK and it is not a VERBAL or a COACHING wait for the
shoe to drop. As you get older you have a tendency to forget. Sooo on January 25th approximately around 2:15-2:30 am, 2014 I just wanted to remind myself I was being held accountable for an ineffective job with little to no resources to get the job done. Okay! Remember keep your diary, tape, and keyboard ready. E for Evidence. Unforgettable that’s what you are.

A Mother’s Worse Nightmare___Mindset

I am here and I am not along. TM’s life has been devalued and so many of our young we have lost to GUN VIOLENCE. Look around at the LIVES that are devalued on a regular basis leading up to our COMMANDER-and-CHIEF who ROCKS the CHAIR. MR. EXECUTIVE FUNCTION himself held his breath and reveal to the nation the shoes he has worn has been drenched in muddy waters. The stage has been set, the curtains goes up, and the theme is a broken heart. The PRESIDENT will help decrease the flow of the hurt and pain by having the conversation that RACE will be the topic of THE WHOLE WORLD IS A STAGE and everybody plays a part. This conversation must continue in our homes, schools, churches, media, and social media. It is TIME to FLIP the CHART OVER.

The judge took a zero tolerance stance by not letting race come into the courtroom. Unable to be black although you are black and RACE is so obvious. It is the position that is taken on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART when a child/adult acts out due to his disability in a zero tolerance zone. It will not be tolerated. You are unable to be disabled in a zero tolerance zone. Yet you cannot stop being disable nor change the color of your skin. It is the obvious. What The Hah Hell!

Sabrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, said they never viewed her son as a child. It was very obvious and the external view. We will now move to the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART on the internal view. TRAYVON was a healthy outgoing young man. He did not get the opportunity to fulfill his dreams. I could see TRAYVON being a peer buddy for a child who is disabled. Children with developmental delays or pervasive developmental delays and other exceptionalities need the guidance of peer buddies to keep them from being isolated and to show them how to develop friendships and relationships. Whatever picture the DEFENSE painted of TRAYVON MARTIN he was a good friend to RACHEL JENTEL and he loved his family.

Children who are disabled become adults. They do not grow out of their disabilities. Working with the behaviors will help diminish the behavioral outbreaks. Helping a child to understand he is not a misfit. Children with disabilities plays an important role in our society also. Children who are disabled will fall short in the areas of maturity and in the social domain. A 27-year-old male can have the mindset of a 17-year-old child. By his mindset he is a child. He will be judged by his age and the external view of his appearance and charge accordingly. Even if this child is big for his age he will be viewed as the bully and never as a giant TEDDY BEAR. So if they COULD NOT see TRAYVON MARTIN as a child, a great battle has been loss for the DISABILITY COMMUNITY. This is why more and more children/adults who are disabled end up in prison and on death row. It has now become the obvious. We will call it the BBD SYNDROME.

On the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART BBD SYNDROME consist of you being BLACK, BEHAVIORAL, and DISABLE. On the so-called normal side of the chart you are BLACK with boo-coo behaviors and your BLACKNESS has locked you into a category as being violent, aggressive, and dangerous. Even with a DISABILITY you are viewed the same way. Preponderance of evidence was collected to make the innocent look guilty. Your BLACKNESS disables your civil rights, human rights, and your right to stand your ground. The way you walk, talk, dress, posture, tone of voice, and the way you respond puts you right at the front door of the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. We cannot ask TRAYVON MARTIN. We can ask RACHEL JENTEL how she felt when she was judged about her attitude and speech. Only on the FLIP SIDE of the CHART you get a fancy name but there is more than meets the eye. Yes, it is a true DECEPTICON.

The DEFENSE decided to “CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR” around TM. What was the DEFENSE instructions? MARK O’MARA instructed the jurors to not use common sense. Mark O’MARA wanted to diminish EMOTIONS and put the jurors on a merry-go-round of being unable to put themselves in the shoes of TRAYVON MARTIN. The jurors rallied to the aid of GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. O’MARA and DON WEST put a bullet through the hearts of the jurors to alleviate COMPASSION, EMPATHY or SUPPORT to render a verdict of NOT GUILTY. The DEFENSE job was to strip away humaneness. Isn’t that amazing an attorney can walk right in and have you pulled the plug on your SENSE OF NORMAL and rid you of your COMMON SENSE___MOTHER’S WIT? That is very disabling.

On the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART these very characteristics qualifies an individual as having a SOCIAL INCOMPETENCY DISORDER. Did JUROR B-37 choose William Syndrome (WS), Autism, High Function Autism (HFA), Pervasive Developmental Delays (PDD), Hyperlexia, Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD). That is right! I guess the jurors deserved a break today. I wonder what disability did they attempt to play. INTENTIONALLY! They got the opportunity to choose from another CHART. JUROR B-37 had some MIND BOGGLING brain farts. WOW, JAY CARNIE! TRAYVON MARTIN took a bullet straight through his heart. TM’s death has had the opposite effect because our nation is smart. People around the nation use their common sense and humanness to know this VERDICT___Thwarted.

You are taken out of your comfort zone and put into ISOLATION. The court take away all your zoo-zoo’s and wam-wams (sensory items that keeps an individual from going the hell ballistic). This includes TV, radio, your IPAD, computer, no social medial. The DEFENSE march in and tells you to look at the evidence, and scrap the emotional. BETCHA BY GOLLY WOW! The court system has disabled their jury, pushed them over the edge, and has validated behavior that is unacceptable and rejected by our society. On a regular NEUROLOGICAL UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORAL day a child who is BORN with challenges and pervasive developmental delays can be murdered because of the GEORGE ZIMMERMANS of the world. That’s right, DOA. The DEFENSE instructed the jurors to look the other way, don’t care, not to question what no parent on this earth wish on their child/adult who is legitimately disabled. Their child can take a bullet through the heart because GZ, the police did not understand the behavior and made an ASSUMPTION. So it comes down to a triple whammy for a black male, being disabled, BLACK and UNDER ATTACK. Ain’t that some SH…

It was never brought out in the case that TM had any type of disability. GZ decided to define TM’s behavior yet GZ claimed he had a disability. TM’s behavior was always on trial from his FACEBOOK, school records and GZ challenging TM’s demeanor. What gave GZ the right to zero in on TM’s behavior when his behavior wasn’t challenged by the people in his family, nor his environment, nor the DEFENSE, nor the Police? Are you ready to FLIP this baby over.

MARK OMARA stood in the courtroom and told the BIGGEST LIE I ever heard in my LIFE. He said questions lead to DOUBT. If the following individuals on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART or the opposite end of the spectrum don’t ask questions, they can be raped, tortured, victimized, and killed. It doesn’t stop there it can go either way. When you don’t ask questions, Straight-up in the medical world it can lead to DEATH either way. GEORGE ZIMMERMAN ask the question, “What are you doing here?” TRAYVON MARTIN asked the question, “Who are you?” Always ask the question. Continue to look for answers. Continue to learn. Asking questions is a learning mode and gathering the facts for many people at both ends of the spectrum. Do you want to know? Are you looking for the TRUTH/FACTS/REALITY?

What would happen to a person with the following characteristics?

The INDIVIDUAL displays the following:

1.) labeled annoying, or getting on your nerves, trying to get your attention.

2.) say the wrong thing (social blunder)

3.) has no clue he has pissed you off by what was said because he cannot read
your facial expression

4.) cannot decipher that they are in danger because they cannot read the body
posture

5.) doesn’t realize the tone of his voice is loud and give very sharp responses

6.) very literal, all black and white and no grey areas, cannot read the hidden
meaning of language and social interactions aren’t detected

7.) regarded as a smart alec, rude and discourteous

8.) whatever a person say he takes you at you word

9.) constantly misjudge socially and misrepresented

10.) trust people to do what is right, and doesn’t understand a person who is
cunning and manipulate others.

11.) does not alter expression of speech

People who are diagnosed with NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) ask lots of question. They are not trying to annoy or frustrate anyone.
My son and many children/adults who are DISABLED would be dead at the hands of GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. I really don’t like the word DISABLED. If you overdo, not do enough or not do at all this can classify you as disabled. Look at the behaviors of CONGRESS, SUPREME COURT JUDGES, JUDGES, ATTORNEYS, SENATORS, WALLSTREET, CELEBRITIES, SPORT ATHLETES, BANKS, you name it. The people have seen what they have done for our nation. What category would you place them in? This list can go on and on. Have they stopped their behavior?

FLIP THE CHART over and whose behavior looks the worst on an INTENTIONAL DAY. Do AMERICANS take the GEORGE ZIMMERAN POSITION and say, The F..cking Punks, they always get away with it. So do we go out and kill our highest ranking officials for the INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS they have displayed? I guess it is okay for them to keep their jobs, do nothing to help move our nation forward, kill our blacks young men, make no attempt to pass gun laws, and destroy the President because he represents what whites fear the most. CHANGE and INTELLIGENCE! What the President is packing a DRONE! Get out of here.

People with disabilities are not out being disabled. They are out living their lives and living with what they are born with. They are being the best that they can be. It is all UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORAL. What happens when the police stops your child/adult and say you need to look at me? It is not going to happen if a person is nld, asperger, autism, and other exceptionalities. What happens when the police say you need to stop rocking from side to side, stop making grimaces (facial expression composed of pain, disgust or disapproval), and stop making that funny noise with your mouth? You think this officer knows anything about tics. No, this is the response. You on drugs BOY? You raising your voice at me BOY? You trying to be a SMART A.. BOY? When I talk to you look at me BOY? Don’t play with me BOY can’t you see you are pissing me off. Well, the person who is disabled cannot understand your facial expression are anyones else facial expression. It gets worse.

Your child/adult is stopped in the mall. They have an item in their pockets. The officer was informed by a sales clerk the item may have been stolen from the store. The sales clerk tells the officer black kids come in the store and steal ALL the TIME. As the officer looks closer they realize the item is old and has been chewed on. What happens next? The officer looks at his partner and says, “Well what do we have here, a chewed up bear?” He looks at his partner and they begin to toss the bear back and forth. “Aren’t you kind of old to be carrying a baby doll?” Laughing out of control the officer says, “Still wetting your pants BOY?” You really think these officers understand anything about a person who is disabled carrying sensory items around to help them remain calm . Hell No! It is always about HUMILIATION, INTIMIDATION, and TRIGGERING the person behavior for a beat down, incarceration, or death. Flip the Chart over and you get the same results.

Talks! Conversations! You stop living in FEAR and you LIVE with the REALITY. This conversation was started some years ago with KU UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER doctors in psychiatry. I will emphasize just because you reach out to a psychiatrist it doesn’t mean you are crazy. It means you are looking for more solutions and answer to your question. It means you find no shame in your game in asking for help. It means you are reaching out taking steps to get closer to your goal of understanding yourself and healing. It means you will one day be better equipped to understand others. To hell with MARK OMARA DOUBT! It hit its height on July 22, 2013. The Conversations will continue. It is AB-SO-LUTE-LY mandatory we keep opening doors. Keep the CONVERSATIONS and the TALKS GOING. Never stop asking the QUESTIONS and continue to look for ANSWERS. Always be thirsty to LEARN and UNDERSTAND. It will move this nation FORWARD.

MARK OMARA gave the JURORS 4 minutes to reflect. TRAYVON MARTIN’s parents have the rest of their lives to reflect upon a VERDICT of NOT GUILTY. To the parents of TRAYVON MARTIN I never understood why my trials and tribulations kept leading me to the path of deaths doorway when I thought I would be advocating for the LIFE of my son and many others. FLIP THE CHART OVER and it has been the DEATH of your son and all of the children, young adults, and adults who has been lost to GUN VIOLENCE that has held the highest PITCH of ADVOCATING from the mountaintop. It is TIME to turn those trials and tribulations to a TRIBUTE to the parents of a young man who had many hopes and dreams. TRAYVON is my son and my son could be TRAYVON.

I will continue on with AN NLD MOTHER’S PRAYER:

Before I lay my head to rest.
I pray to GOD I have done my best.
When death comes for my tattered soul.
I pray to GOD my children grow old.

In these hours of hurt and pain.
A Verdict was received with absolute disdain.
No matter what the DEFENSE claimed.
The stench of RACISM will remain.

A young life was stolen in the dark.
Hatred was the bullets mark.
Anger and frustration fused the spark.
Retaliation we shall not embark.

Let us come away in peace.
We will honor and respect the decease.
Yes, a murderer was released.
Our hearts are bleeding and it has to cease.

IT IS TIME TO STAND OUR GROUND!

Fighting On The Assessment__NLD Final Frontier

Scene:   Smokelbg has left the office of Dr. Phil and is on her way to see Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Drew. Earlier in the day she had an appointment with Dr. OZ who referred her to Dr. Phil. It is very significant to show the New Wave Doctors what will happen to NLD Syndrome if it is not given the support of a community and the opportunities to become successful in today’s society. Smokelbg wants to enlist the help of the most innovative doctors to RECOGNIZE the importance of consistent testing of NLD Syndrome. NLD Syndrome may be more common. She wants the New Wave Doctors to understand how unilateral decisions have discriminated against and found a way to avoid giving support to children/adults with extraordinary minds, unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles whom our society has labeled disabled. Smokelbg can’t believe how a school for young pregnant mothers in the mainstream has also been affected just recently by unilateral decisions. It is time for Smokelbg to  FIGHT LIKE HELL on the assessment. This story will explain to the New Wave Doctors – the medical, psychological, social/emotional effect it places on NLD Syndrome, other exceptionalities, and the mainstream. It will compare/contrast NLD Syndrome to the mainstream RECOGNIZABLE and UNRECOGNIZABLE.

Receptionist:

All the release of information forms have been properly completed. Your information has arrived and Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew will be seeing you in about 10 minutes. We will get the notes from this session back to Dr. OZ and Dr. Phil as soon as possible. We need you  to fill out and update some information on your insurance form.  Underneath the insurance forms we have placed our release of information forms to be filled out . Anywhere you see an X please fill out the area and make sure it is dated and signed.  You will be seated in the RED  ROOM and the doctors with be with you momentarily.

Smokelbg:

Wow! Is this one of the clones from the movie Stepford Wives? She sure has her speech down. Maybe it’s me and this RED ROOM I’m sitting in. Colors do affect a person’s mood. It could be me connecting the dots of Dr. Phil’s room number 666 and the color red.

Receptionist:

Okay, Smoke 1 lb or Smokel Bug the doctors are waiting for you.

Smokelbg:

Hold Up, it is pronounced as SMOKE L.B.G. This has happened to me many times before. I understand when there is a problem with reading words, spacing of letters, or even seeing the word for the first time it can be pronounce wrong. People with Dyslexia and NLD Syndrome have problems in this area.

Receptionist:

I am neither one.  It was just an error on my part.

Smokelbg:

Do you mispronounce words?  Do you run the lettering of the words together? Have you ever been tested on word reading or pseudo word decoding (ability to pronounce nonsense words)?

Receptionist:

Hey, I made a mistake. I do not make mistakes very often. Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew will see you now.

Smokelbg:

I think it is time to turn her desk away from the RED ROOM. Maybe a cooler view of just looking at a picture of the ocean waves would loosen her rigid behavior (thinking to herself). Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew, thank you both for letting me have this opportunity to visit with you today.

Dr. Chopra:

Thank you for coming. We received your packages of information and I appreciate the books. This is short notice and I have not had the time to brief myself on all information, but this is very fascinating.

Dr. Drew:

Smoklbg, the books are much appreciated and I haven’t had the opportunity to review all of the information on NLD Syndrome. I am not familiar with Nonverbal Learning Disability. You have a lot of concerns. How can we help you?

Smokelbg:

I consider you both as New Wave Doctors. Dr.Chopra your strong  connection to MIND, BODY, SPIRIT, and the relationship with LOVE, HEALTH, HAPPINESS is vastly needed. These components would be very essential in helping people with NLD Syndrome become successful. Dr.Drew your straight forwardness on drugs and alcohol addictions will help many individuals realize the changes in one’s behavior and the harm it causes to the body.  The end results will cost the individual his life or another innocent bystander their life. You both have lost people very close to you. Dr. Chopra I’m deeply sorry for the lost of your long time friend of 20 yrs., Michael Jackson.

Dr. Drew I am deeply sorry for the lost of your most recent patient and friend Jeff Conaway.  The key word today is INTERVENTION. I understand that both of you have been criticized for your methods, techniques, and the sincerity of your positions. I need your help in giving RECOGNITION to NLD Syndrome. You both can help me with the importance of showing the world how people diagnosed  with  NLD syndrome need an inclusive protective environment. They need to be surrounded by those who are committed, educated about NLD Syndrome, and willing to make accommodations for NLD’s unique learning style. Strategies and developing coping skills for the manifestation of their behavior needs to be put in place. DEDICATION without MEDICATION and INTERVENTION can be very productive for NLD Syndrome. SOCIAL SKILLS and LIFE SKILLS  would be the primary teaching of their program. These are very key elements for inclusion in the community and society. I want the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to feel the heat from the grill. They need to be held accountable for not incorporating a syndrome that can interact with other disorders but be left out of a diagnostic manual. The APA did not RECOGNIZE  the damage it has caused by not enlisting NLD Syndrome for as funding, insurance, and school placement. A psychiatric community  that has contradicted themselves. They have 38,000 psychiatrists under their umbrella. This is a large COMMUNITY. NLD Syndrome has no supports, no umbrella, no COMMUNITY and is left out in the rain. Hell, even Dan Akroyd and John Belushi in the Blues Brothers were a team. Sam had Dave. Gladys Knight had the Pips. Ike Turner had Tina Turner until he messed up.  I want my New Wave Doctors bringing in NLD Syndrome on the note of the Blues Brothers, “Everybody Needs Somebody”.(Everyone in the room puts on their dark shades, fedoras (hats), and starts imitating the Blues Brothers)

Dr. Chopra:

Aaah, singing and dancing is very good for the body and uplifts the spirit. I get your message Smoke L.B. G. Yes, my secretary warned me that you had a very tricky name.

Dr. Drew:

That felt great! Dr. Chopra you got a mean step. Work it out. Smokelbg I get your message loud and clear. I tell you what, I enjoyed shaking my bootie in therapy today.

Dr.Chopra:

I learned that dance step in my country, New Delhi, India. Okay, what is the next step.

Smokelbg:

It is TIME to put the pieces of the puzzle together. NLD Syndrome along with many others have a problem getting the whole picture. I’m going to reiterate very important points from some of my stories to show WHAT’S GOING ON.

Dr. Drew:

I like me some Marvin Gaye. Go Ahead, Go Ahead.

Smokelbg:

We will start with Welcome To My Blog.

1.) We meet people who may appear different, but they shouldn’t change themselves to fit our mold or our way of thinking.

2.) Before we judge them, we first need to learn about them.

INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS:

1.) We judge people and convict them before we ever get the facts.

2.) We are not trying to learn about others. They will be excluded if they don’t click with our way of thinking.

UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS

Hey Those Are Not My Eyeglasses

1.) A person with a right hemisphere disorder only has use of one side of the brain making it uni-modal. The creative side has damages which causes problems in the 4Rs (reading, riting, rithmetic, and relationships). NLD Syndrome central nervous system is out of whack causing them to have a severe coordination problem. They are at risk for depression, anxiety, stress, and panic attacks. NLDers appear to be annoying, very loud, awkward, and it is very difficult for them to express themselves appropriately. It is hard for them to initiate a conversation but once they get going, the conversation is on. The conversation is relevant to them. The conversation may not be relevant to you. In the mainstream there are lots of  people who intentionally want everything to be about them. People with NLD Syndrome have no clue. We need to TEACH them to understand how to  share, take turn, not to view everyone is just like them, emotions of themselves and understanding emotions of others.  It is very important for NLDers to learn and understand what happens when they act out impulsively and the consequences for their actions.

2.) Their view is very distorted and it causes faulty perception. They miss a lot of information, cannot read people, read between the line, and do not interact with their environment. NLDers want to interact with their environment but don’t know how to interact. They can be taught.

3.) People with NLD Syndrome are NOT EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED and their BEHAVIORS are UNINTENTIONAL.

4.)  Give them an explanation and SPELL IT OUT.

INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS:

1.) Unilateral Decisions are made. The people who make these decisions has a one-sided view.  It is by their OWN CHOICE not to be connected to his/her environment. They  do not desire to interact with other cultures or understand cultural diversity.

2.) Their views are distorted and their ones size fits all decision-making process is very disturbing. They will go through back doors and do what ever is necessary to get the results they want. They have a Duncan MacLeod Highlander  Effect. “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE.”

3.)Those who make unilateral decisions are bound and determined to keep out programs that are effective and have shown positive results. People who make unilateral decision strategies are saying, YOU ARE A BUDGET CUT.

EXAMPLE: Rick Snider, the Governor of Michigan, made a decision that was quite disturbing against Catherine Ferguson Academy. He sent a strong message to WOMEN AROUND THE  WORLD. Rick Snider’s decision stripped African-American Women of their right to be educated in an environment which gives them the opportunity to succeed regardless of their plight of being single mothers and continuing their education. Why would you want to cancel a school with a high success rate? Rick Snider and his financial manager Dave Thomas’ message rang out to African-American Women and the African-American Communities, “YOU ARE BLACK AND BACK IN THE KITCHEN BAREFOOT AND PREGNANT”. “YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO MOVE AHEAD.”  Wow! Big time DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN across the nation. This message reaches out to all diverse cultures and has been pointed out in the story, Got No Time To Be Disabled (located in the March 2011 archives), and the Look Of Love Valentine’s Day (located in the February 2011 archives).

The closing of the school has been OVERTURNED but the scent and the taste linger on. You can reverse the decision but the hurt and pain will last a lifetime, especially for those of us who has  lived this already and to see it happen all over again. So you see Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew, CHOICES  are very key elements when Unilateral Decisions are being made.  The biggest picture involved RACE, DISCRIMINATION, EDUCATION, WOMEN, FUNDING, ACHIEVEMENTS, GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION and much more concerning Catherine Ferguson Academy. I mention in my tweets that RACE is a key element but it does not ride alone. The following factors are integrated into the unilateral decision of the closing of Catherine Ferguson Academy.  WE KNOW THE DEAL. WE KNOW THE DRILL. There are a lot of CHOICES of CARDS to PLAY from. We don’t always have to play the same card. The CONSERVATIVES and the REPUBLICANS HANDS REALLY ROCK THE CRADLE on the above issues.

We now have a clearer picture of how these men feel about Cultural Diversity. We are back to the Highlander Effect, “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE”. So if you deny certain under-privilege cultures the opportunity to succeed, you are denying them their right to SURVIVE.  The NO CHOICE people will LOSE.

Whatever we assumed about the Conservative and the Republican Party we no longer have to Assume. One thing about NLDers you will never have to assume how they feel about you. They will always tell you, Truth By No Fault.

They hope people with NLD Syndrome will one day learn to paraphrase their statements, sugarcoat, or lie. Would you rather be lied to? Do you what to know the truth? Can you handle the truth?  Is this one of the reasons why people are so annoyed with those who have NLD Syndrome?  Do you have this characteristic or trait of NLD Syndrome that turns people off?

Dr. Chopra and Dr. Drew, do you mind if we take a short recess? I need to have round table discussion with Tavis Smiley, Dr. Cornell West, Rachel Maddow, Rev. AL Sharpton, Wolf Blitzer, and MSNBC. I  need to contact the President of the United States, The Onion, Ed Schultz, Michael Eric Dyson, NPR, and Prince.

Dr. Chopra:

Go ahead Smokelbg. Why Prince? I do not understand.

Smokelbg:

Prince has the EYES that will reveal it all, just like  Dr. Phil has those talking EYEBROWS which tells the story of his approval or disapproval. It is the nonverbal communication that will tell the story of each of the key player chosen above. NLDers would be lost in this meeting because they will not be able to decipher the body language nor read between the lines.

Dr. Drew:

I would love to be at that conference. Do you think we could get Prince to sing and dance at the round table meeting?  It would be one hell of icebreaker to get things started. That’s my song by the Black-Eye Peas, Let’s Get It Started In Here.

Smokelbg:

There is a chart you can refer to online that shows NLD interacting DIRECTLY with other disorders such as ASPERGER SYNDROME, OCD, AND TIC DISORDER. There are outside factors of learning disabilities that affect NLD Syndrome such as AUTISM DISORDER, PDD LIKE DISORDERS, ANXIETY DISORDERS. Go to NLDONLINE.CA.

I want my chosen team to PLEASE READ-DSM5 TO EXCLUDE ASPERGER, PDD-NOS AND NLD IN 2013, WAIT…. WHAT. This article is written by LIFE DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE (LDI). This article points out that particular issues for  African Americans families are typically later referred for being diagnosed at a much later age than their Caucasian counterparts. The story GOT NO TIME TO BE DISABLED points out how race is played out in an under privilege area. Information was provided to demonstrate how other cultures can be discriminated against.

UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS

We Need An Interpreter

1.)  NLDers can’t interpret body language, abstract language, and are unable to communicate socially. It causes a massive amount of confusion within the person which in return causes them to act out UNINTENTIONALLY and their behavior to manifest. They need a verbal explanation.

2.) Grand Guardians-trusted adults who give verbal and concrete explanations to NLDers to help interpret the world around them. They mentor, develop strategies, coping skills, provide accommodations to help people with NLD Syndrome to work around their deficits. Grand Guardians help advocate the needs of NLDers in order for those with NLD Syndrome  to one day be able to advocate for themselves.

3.) Take the fluff out of NLDers program and make their life-like The Reader’s Digest Books_Condensed.

4.) Give them factual information and documentation. Only teach BENEFICIAL SKILLS.

INTERPRETERS FOR EXTRAORDINARY MINDS, UNIQUE ABILITIES, AND MULTI-LEVEL LEARNING STYLES

1.) Grand Guardians, mentors, psychiatrists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, attorneys, advocates, family and friends who are knowledgeable and trustworthy.

INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS:

1.) People who are very familiar with their friend/associates behaviors INTENTIONALLY create havoc to make them act out. They set people up for failure.

2.) They will make negative comments to always break the self-esteem down of their peers. It is the  negative  nucleus factor of you need me, I don’t need you. I am better than you. I made you who you are. I have more money than you. I YI YI! Fighting the Fight by Proxy. Don’t let them wine you up. Don’t let people light your fuse.

3.) As far as friendships and relationships, they choose to unfriend you at the drop of a dime and manipulate behaviors of others. Let them fight their own fight and don’t let them pull you into their fight. What you need to understand there are many people who appear very likable but these are the Rump-Shakers who will get other people involved to do all the dirty work and never have a blemish on their record. Who are the real Scum Bags?

INTERPRETERS FOR THE MAINSTREAM, RECOGNIZABLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE(Good and Bad)

1.) advisors, attorneys, coaches, analysts, managers, CEOs, counselors, Supreme Court Justices, Chief of Staff, Presidents, Prime Ministers, etc.

2.) Carl Rove-former Senior Advisor, Deputy Chief  to Former President George Bush (Bush’s Brain) BAD BABY! Carl Rove is Commander and Chief of RACISM and HATRED of all TIMES. Money cannot buy everything especially a President. Carl Rove thinks it can.

3.) Dominique Strauss-Kahn IMF-manager of the International Monetary Fund (sex scandals, harassment, and the NO NO THOUGHTS) BAD BABY! Totally out of control. Ruined a magnificent career. This dude has really poor judgement. He is not a TRUSTED ADULT

4.) Silvio Berlusconi-Prime Minister of Italy (sex scandals, and corruptions) BAD BABY! Trusted Adult-No. You would not trust your child with a person like this or MITT ROMNEY’S dead dog! No!

5.) Clarence Thomas-Supreme Court Justice-Conservative who will not flinch when it comes to judging the consequences of others. (He has to learn and understand the whole picture) UNINTENTIONAL VS INTENTIONAL A Supreme Court Justice bent on closing the gap so one can think the INTENTIONAL Behaviors are now the New Norm.

Read Who In The World Is NLD? (located in the January 2011 archive). BAD BABY! OUT of TOUCH and a sell out. Trusted Adult-No! Thomas needs to leave the Supreme Court with his outdated ideas. DETHRONE!

1.) Shows traits and characteristics of NLD Syndrome

2.) Accommodations used to help NLD maneuver around their deficits

NLD Syndrome is the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART.  Choices and opportunities are not provided to them in order to have support from a community.   People with NLD Syndrome without the necessary support will end up being institutionalized, imprisoned, or dead.  I am quite sure this is not the choices they would make for themselves.

Companies support one another. They either merge together, interconnect, or buy each other out to keep themselves from failing. Banks and the Auto Industry do it all the times.

1.) Apple interconnect with Twitter

2.) Microsoft interconnect with Facebook

3.) Huffington Post and AOL

4.) MSNBC and Comcast

5.) AT&T and T-mobile

6.) Sprint and Nextel

7.) Best Buy and Radio Shack

8.) Sears and Kmart

This list can go on and on. Oprah, Stedman Graham, and Gayle King have supported each other for many years. Hell, even Oprah’s dogs support her on the cover of  O Magazine. We have companies that are Watchdogs.

1.) Media Matters-monitors the inaccuracies of the Conservatives and the media.

2.) Consumer Report is the Watch Dog for the Consumer.

Come on people! Where are the dogs that will watch out for NLD Syndrome? Snoop Dogg watches out for his Doggs. NLD Syndrome ends up in the Dog’s House. Why would you vanish Asperger Syndrome  to lump these other syndromes all together?  Why would the American Psychiatric Association avoid putting NLD Syndrome on their list?  What is the American Psychiatric Association’s real agenda? Does the APA have a problem with cultural diversity? Go back and read Got No Time To Be Disabled. Is the American Psychiatric Association going through the back door to discriminate against those who are under privileged? Is this one of the ways the American Psychiatric Association can institutionalize and imprison a diverse culture of people by denying them the opportunity of educational accommodation, job accommodation, funding, insurance, and supports from a community.  Will the APA decision for the DSM-5  resemble the Catherine Ferguson Academy decision? Now pay close attention. If you have a disorder that is RECOGNIZED by the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS how will  NLD Syndrome/other exceptionalities and behaviors be judged against the mainstream behaviors.  There have been numerous outbreaks of behaviors by government officials, RECOGNIZABLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE.

Why would the APA want to close the gap and make it appear that all BEHAVIORS ARE INTENTIONAL?  Who is the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION really trying to get rid of?  Who are they trying to set up for failure?  Can we trust the APA? Do we assume they work in the best interest of the people?  WE KNOW THE  DRILL.

WE KNOW THE DEAL.  We no longer need to assume anymore about the APA  and who they are connected to.  The key words are UNINTENTIONAL VS INTENTIONAL. Close the gap and everyone will be judge on INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS by conservative judges that may not Flinch. Go to my blog and read the stories and tell me what you think.

It is time to connect the dots and FIGHT ON THE ASSESSMENT.

ADVISORY ALERT:

If you ever slip into a coma, survive an aneurysm, stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, Parkinson disease, diabetes, hydrocephalus, any disease that causes damage to the brain-WHO WILL YOU RESEMBLE? YOU ARE NOW DISABLED. WILL YOU BE PROVIDED WITH THE NECESSARY SUPPORT TO SURVIVE?

Remember the message the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION is sending.  People with NLD SYNDROME will not be RECOGNIZED, will not be provided with SUPPORT, and have NO RIGHTS FOR QUALITY OF LIFE.

DEDICATION: THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY WHO HAS PROVIDED A COMMUNITY, INTERVENTION, NEW WAVE MEDICINES AND TREATMENT TO SUPPORT WHATEVER QUALITY OF LIFE THAT IS PENDING.

NLD MOM/CANCER SURVIVOR

New Wave Physician__Healthy Choice Doctor For NLD

Scene:  Smokelbg is on the prowl for the most creative, updated, and therapeutic doctors in the field today. On her shopping tour  you will be surprised about the  doctors she encounters. She wants the doctors to understand NLD Syndrome, and for people to RECOGNIZE that NLD Syndrome may be very common.

The American Psychiatric Association needs to be held accountable for the exclusion of NLD Syndrome after 41 yrs. of not placing it in their diagnostic manual.  In reviewing the history of the APA, Smokelbg understands why NLD Syndrome is not on the DSM-5. Smokelbg wants to bring awareness to her New Wave Physicians and people around the world.

Smokelbg:

It is TIME! I am on my way to shop for the most innovative doctors.  I want the best choice and a healthy choice for NLD Syndrome. This is where we cut the fat. A person diagnosed with NLD Syndrome needs excess fluff cut out of their diet. They need the facts and not the fat.  Dr. OZ gives explicit, concrete visuals, examples, and information.  We get the message and it is exactly what NLD needs.  Dr. OZ makes it a point to show how important it is to make life changes so we can extend our life by changing our diet. NLD needs lots of modification and choices incorporated into their life diet to enable them to work around their deficits and not be set up for failure. NLD doesn’t need unrealistic goals set. They need lots of TIME. That is what I really like about  Dr. OZ and his show. He makes it clear to his audience this just won’t happen overnight. It will take TIME to get results.

Dr. OZ:

Now Smokelbg, you know that I emphasize how important it is to cut back and eat smaller meals, exercise, and see a doctor before you take on any new exercise regimen. Our body needs to be watered like a plant. So make sure you drink plenty of water. Your body needs the appropriate amount of rest. It will take TIME and a STEP BY STEP PROCEDURE so you won’t expect quick results. From the results you will make PROGRESS.

Smokelbg:

Dr. OZ, this is what I want people to understand about NLD. It’s going to take a long TIME and it is a STEP BY STEP PROCEDURE. In today’s world we want everything to happen RIGHT NOW.   In our society we want fast food, to get rich quick, and to become a superstar overnight. The fast food proves to be unhealthy for our body. The people who won the lottery made poor investments and lost all their money. The overnight superstars got cocky, acted out impulsively, and landed on the front page of the  National Enquirer.  So you see Dr. OZ, people choose to spend hours waxing and rubbing their cars, but they cannot take the TIME out of their day to BUFF THEIR LIFE.

We put so much time and preparation into planning a wedding. This process can take months. Very little preparation goes into preparing COPING SKILLS to help us get through a single day. Look at all the TIME we invest on our jobs and the STRESS it causes. We don’t take the TIME to develop STRATEGIES to help deal with the STRESS. Depression sets in and we are now the TIDY BOWL ACHIEVERS. The work we produce looks like it comes from A JANITOR IN A DRUM. The company thinks we are full of  DOO DOO. We need lots of encouragement and praise to be more productive on the job. Our performance is going to get worse.

Now look here Dr. OZ, the same thing can happen to a person with NLD Syndrome. They will probably end up at the psychiatrist suffering from depression, anxiety, panic and stress. THE TIDY BOWL ACHIEVERS will end up in your office suffering from hypertension, high blood pressure, or a good old faithful heart attack. Either way it is not good. Can we just get an e-mail that reads, “You guys are doing a fantastic job. No, you are not getting a raise but hugs, kisses, and warm fuzzies to you. Keep up the good work. Hey, it’s better than nothing.”  The TIDY BOWL ACHIEVERS would internally think this is a bunch of DOO DOO. NLDers are external and very verbose and they will say to their boss, “you are full of SHhhh.”

There goes the NLDERS job and we are back to square one. They will not hold back on what they think because they process from the outside in. This is only one of the reasons why they get fired so often. Truth by no fault is NLDers M.O. and people can’t take it straight up front.

Dr. OZ:

Thanks Smokelbg, I’m beginning to get the picture of how it works for the NLDers. I appreciate the lesson. I tell you what, I’ll see if  I can get you in with Dr. PHIL. He would be quite fascinated with NLD Syndrome. I will give him a call and tell him you are on the way.

Smokelbg:

Thank you Dr. OZ for letting me bend your ears back. I will be back in my red slippers to get my lab work done. I want to make sure my clock doesn’t stop ticking. I’m glad somebody around here is getting the picture. For a moment I thought I was going to have a heart attack fooling around with the APA.

I’m coming around the corner. Here’s Dr. Phil’s office. Okay, room 666. Aahh Man you are kidding me!  Maybe he’s going to play the Devil’s Advocate. Excuse me, I have an appointment to see Dr.Phil. I hope this isn’t a long wait. Watch, the receptionist is going to tell me I’m scheduled for 10:45 a.m.

Receptionist:

Do you have your insurance card? Is the information on your insurance updated?  Is this your first visit here? Please fill out these papers and your appointment is at 10:45 a.m. Your copay is $25.00.

Smokelbg:

No, I have  coupons. It’s just a Paul Ryan joke. Sure, everybody is scheduled at 10:45 in the morning…  Let me reach over here and read this magazine. Let’s see who is on the cover of TIME MAGAZINE today. All right! SHAQUILLE O’NEAL RETIRES. Enjoy your life SHAQ. I had a good SHAQ DAY yesterday.

Receptionist:

Dr. Phil is ready to see you now. Who is Paul Ryan?

Smokelbg:

If you don’t know you might be in good shape. Dr. Phil, thanks for seeing me on such a short notice. I brought you some books on Nonverbal Learning Disabilities.  I have Rourke, B.P. (1995) Syndrome of Nonverbal Learning Disability:  Neuro-developmental Manifestations, Guilford Press. Rourke, B.P. (1989) Nonverbal Learning Disabilities:  The Symbol and the Model, Guilford Press.

Right hemisphere dysfunction in nonverbal learning disabilities: social, academic, and adaptive functioning in adults and children. Psychological Bulletin, 107, 196-209.  I will throw in another website, NLDONLINE.CA, just in case you want a quick overview.

Dr. Phil:

Thank you for the information Smokelbg. Do you always give the doctors a book when you first meet them?

Smokelbg:

Yes, I do. Two thing can happen from this point on. It can piss the doctor off and they will feel intimidated that I’m questioning their knowledge on the subject we are about to explore.  On the other hand, the doctor will be thrilled with the information, willing to hear me out, and learn. Which one are you?

Dr. Phil:

I am willing to learn. Now Smokelbg, this is a lot. It will take some sessions for me to get through this information. Can you brief me?

Smokelbg:

Dr.Phil I did not want to get caught with my drawers down. All the  outbreaks of behaviors from the now INFAMOUS RECOGNIZABLE had me worried. So many of them are getting caught with their drawers down, FOR REAL. There has got to be an explanation.  A lot of the RECOGNIZABLE look like they had traits and characteristics of NLD Syndrome.

Dr. Phil, it is not that hard. You have all this body language you display. When you start confronting the parents on your show it is all over  your face. Your eyebrows can tell a story by themselves. People with NLD Syndrome cannot read body language and they miss a lot of information. Your eyebrows can’t even get a message to NLD… They have a developmental disability  which causes the right hemisphere of the brain to process information differently. Do to faulty perception and how they process their information cause them to have a neuro-behavioral disorder which or unintentional behaviors. They are not emotionally disturbed. Bottom line is they need an interpreter just as you would need an interpreter in a foreign country.

How are you going to know how to act and respond if you don’t understand the language?  How are you going to develop friends and relationships in a country where the language is a barrier and is abstract?  NLD Syndrome has the same problem with abstract language in our own country. They can’t read between the lines.

I have always loved when Joan Rivers said,”CAN WE TALK”.  Nowadays people hate talking and communicating. They text in the same room with the other person only a few feet away. They e-mail you or fax you and you can be an ear-shot away. They FACE BOOK you to death, TWEET you out, and will have a YOUTUBE moment to blow your cover.  So some doctor needs to review the social communication aspect of NLD Syndrome.  We all begin to fall short in this area and begin to look like we have NLD Syndrome. What communication? What do you think Dr. Phil? Why are you looking at me like that?  Are we going to have one of those MADEA MOMENTS?

Dr. Phil:

You are doing fine. You have some valid points. No, we are not going to have a MADEA MOMENT.

Smokelbg:

Okay, you just start looking at me funny. People with NLD Syndrome can really talk. They are auditory-verbal and they want an explanation for everything. This is their mode of learning. They do not explore their environment. People feel they are being challenged and become very annoyed when questioned by  NLDers.

A person with NLD Syndrome will say,  ” I know you feel stupid because you don’t have an answer. Don’t worry you are not alone. There are a lot of stupid people in the world. The ones who are really stupid are the ones who say I’ll get back with you, but they know they are not coming back.”  Get the picture Dr. Phil. Don’t go to a funeral.

They will walk up to a coffin and say exactly what we think silently. They may laugh out loud and point out the dress is ugly and say the person has on too much make up. If someone comments the person did not look like themselves, the response from the person with NLD is this, “Have you ever seen them dead before. They look like this all the time.”

NLDers are not rude. Most of the time when they say something they are correct. We just tuck our comments away and when no one is around we express how we really feel. Now if the microphone is turn on, here comes the  YouTube Moment.We are basically NLD Syndrome Undercover. Who writes, or does math anymore, or pays attention to anyone other than themselves. We are in the computer age Doc. It’s all done for us. We covered the social aspect of NLD Syndrome. The only two areas left that encompass NLD Syndrome is MOTORIC  and VISUAL SPATIAL ORGANIZATION.  As far as motoric, NLD Syndrome nervous system is totally off track or compromised and they have a severe coordination problem. Gymnastics are out, tying shoes, and riding a motorcycle is under advisory alert: DON’T DO.  NLD Syndrome has difficulty with judging people, distance, and weight of objects. They are in your face and in your space. Disorganized is at the top of their list. Advisory Alert: No long road trips unless you have a GPS device. They don’t do puzzles.

They cannot see the forest for the trees,  recognition of faces/places, and is attached to the right or left hip of an adult because they bind through continuous dialogue to stabilize themselves. Well, Dr. Phil I see you are checking your watch so you must have another appointment. Check out my other stories. When is our next appointment?

Dr. Phil:

Tell the receptionist to set you up for an appointment at 10:45 a.m. The same place. The same channel. The year 2666 will be a perfect time. I’m just kidding you. I will see you next month on July 20, Wednesday.

Smokelbg:

Don’t make me have a MADEA MOMENT and saw your beautiful leather sofa in half,  just kidding. I’ll be here in my devil’s outfit next month. I will go over to  Cambridge Building and see if I can set up  an appointment with DeePak Chopra, and Dr. Drew. I must speak to the Dali Lama.

Dr. Phil:

Good luck Smokelbg. I thought she already had her suit on.  She is on a mission. Let me get in here and start reading so next month I will have a couch to sit on. I don’t want to be caught with my drawers down. We have had a lot of that behavior lately.

Reflection Of Words, Magical Moments On Twitter

Whenever I am tweeting on Twitter my thoughts and my heart is always with the ones who has difficulty communicating their thoughts and putting them on paper.  For those of us that can put our thoughts to the grindstone it may take one word or just a phrase to  speak volumes.

I would like to reflect back on some words and phrases which are magical moments on Twitter. There are times when the less words spoken reveals more. The more words spoken reveals less. There comes a moment of silence that can reveal all.

1.)  To all the achievers around the world with extraordinary minds, unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles… keep achieving.

2.) To all the achievers around the world appreciate your mind and respect the achievement.

3.) Live in the moment, for the moment, never in the past of that moment, the moment is Now.

4.) The greatest achievement is to realize what you achieved can be stripped away.

5.) No one should compromise who they are to become what you want them to be. We need to adapt and change our way of thinking. It is called acceptance.

6.) I do not wish to cut the tree down. I just want to make a dent. It is my TIME to give back.

7.)When you break yourself down to the lowest denominator, you are not weak, you are better understood.

8.) Bask in the sun. Feel the rain on your face. Dig your feet into the sand. Breathe on the mirror. Respect TIME.

9.) When you reach out and help others the time passes. Before you know it, your time is lengthened.

10.) Remember to check your airflow, breath on the mirror, it is your breath, it is your life.

11.) I am not a Mac Genius. I am not Microsoft Genius. I am a Mom Genius and my son taught me. He holds the honorary degree.

12.) We need to rethink the way we think and accommodate those that process differently.

13.) When I use the word I, it is for taking responsibility. It is not the selfish I, or the I nucleus factor. I will give you credit.

14.) Do you know your cancers? Anyone or anything that eats at you is a cancer.

15.) We all can be heard. The skill is listening. The ultimate skill is understanding what we hear and what is being said.

16.) Survival-acceptance of the problem, educate yourself, respect and fear the problem, get help, and be self-determined to survive the problem.

17.) Your coat fits likes an armor. Your armor, in given time, will wear like a vest, Reflection of these times will be your windbreaker.

18.) Education is wonderful when you educate. Understanding and adaptability to how one is educated is greater.

19.) Inclusion in the workforce builds character, self-esteem, and validation. The isolation/deprivation causes lack of hope.

20.) Speaking from my heart zone today, when 365 days becomes less in one’s life, you will begin to value so much more.

21.) Everyone has a voice and a choice, a place and a space, and a reason throughout the season.

22.) I live my life for the 5Ps. Purpose-reason, Passion-true intense emotion, Placement-in position to accommodate others, Productivity-output, Power-effectiveness for an extension of 365 days of my life and to help others.

23.) Know your cancers in order to eradicate the problem, survive, and have quality of life.

24.) Relinquish being a V.I.P.(Vanity, Image, Pride). You will never survive any adversity with these elements.

25.) When you live to the fullest, love until your heart is content, and don’t give all your love away, you are PAID IN FULL.

26.) If you don’t love yourself in the process, give too much of yourself away, you will lose life’s battle and become EXPIRED.

27.) I never understood the saying, is the glass half empty or is the glass half full. I thought the glass was a tool to work with and what I put in the glass would account for  my achievements.

28.) Empowerment is knowing your cancers and realizing they are not just under the microscope.

29.) Never hold anyone accountable for that which you fail to teach. Never assume they know. If you make the assumption you failed them. Go back and teach.

30.) Handle your business or your business will handle you. This is accountability.

31.) I have learned to survive my adversities, not people in order to have quality of life.

32.) True respect for life and quality of  life is the losses we have in life.

33.) Love to Learn, Learn to Love, Love, Learn, and Live to Survive.

34.) Make the decision and be held accountable for the decision. Don’t blame for the decision. It was your decision, learn.

35.) See with your mind and envision. Feel with your heart and show true emotion. Speak the words and become expressive.

36.) Can you handle the candle?  Can you handle the burns?

37.) I have held the hands of many who have exited this life. Through all the tears, hurt, pain, and sorrow,  TIME was the key.

38.) Sit close to someone and read a book together. Sit in your favorite chair by the window and see for the first time.

39.) Take the time today and really laugh out loud. Give them a big hug, tell them you care, and really mean it.

40.) Remember when it comes to trials and tribulations, we can no longer be on trial, the verdict is in, and we can turn our tribulations into a tributes.

41.)  My misfortune is your fortune if you only look and learn.

This is dedicated to those with NLD Syndrome and others with extraordinary minds, unique abilities, and multi-level learning styles.

It is hard for children/adults diagnosed with NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) and others to achieve at light speed. Change, adaptability, and struggling with the element of time on a task can lower their achievement along with many other deficits NLD Syndrome possess.

Giving them more choices and accommodations boosts their achievements thus lifting their self-esteem in an inclusive protective environment. Understanding how they learn and also understanding that it takes patience. So teach, teach, and teach. Let them teach you.  Oral communication is necessary.

A very productive strategy for those who are diagnosed with NLD is teaching life skills, social skills, and body language communication.

Define the issue. Ask them what is it they need to do. State the options orally. Don’t overwhelm them with choices. Limit the choices (3-5). Get some feedback and ask them what would be the best choice. Let them make the choice. Time to take Action. Now it is time for Richard Branson saying, SCREW IT, LET’S DO IT.

He/she reviews their actions. You ask them if it was an effective plan or they ask themselves if the plan worked or not. Always point out what is relevant and what is irrelevant. Hey, if they screw it up don’t beat them down for their mistakes.

Punishment is not the answer. You will unmask an unwanted behavior and the behavior will manifest itself if you do not address it properly.

Addressing the behavior properly is understanding their feelings showing compassion, empathy, and being supportive. Spell it Out (concretely, explicitly).

Many words and actions in the above statements (1-41) cannot be expressed by those who are diagnosed with neurological disorders, with unintentional behaviors, and  have developmental delays.

No Shame In Their Game On ST. Patrick’s Day

Scene: Tyrone Tourette, known as TS (cousin of Bobby Tourette), is having drinks and conversing at an Iris Pub called Slimery Otoole. Tyrone Tourette and Catrina Schizophrenia give some background information on themselves. Nicky NLD is waiting for the story to be told on how St.Patrick’s Day got started.  Tyrone Tourettes,  before  he gets too much green beer in his system, will tell the story. Nicky NLD is running out of patience.

Tyrone Tourette:

Nicky,  look at how crowded Slimery Otoole is tonight. It’s jammed packed. Tyrone is going to take you on his TS tour . I’ll Take You There just like the Staple Singers and tell you how St. Patrick’s Day came into existence.

Nicky NLD:

Tyrone are  you sure you don’t want me to tell the story?

Tyrone Tourette:

Why should you tell the story?

Nicky NLD:

Once your tics kick in, it could get messy.

Catrina Schizophrenia:

What are Tics?

Tyrone Tourette:

Catrina Schizo, I have this neurological disorder where people describe me as having strange body movement over and over.  Some people have this image in their head of me having involuntary  movement and making noises called tics. I don’t like to be stereotyped.

Catrina Schizo:

I feel you on that one Tyrone. I have this severe brain disorder that disables me from being able to carry out my life. People try to stereotype me and say that I hear voices others don’t hear. They say I believe other people are reading my mind, controlling my thoughts, and I’m plotting to harm someone.

Tyrone Tourette:

Catrina Schizo that IS what you do.

Catrina Schizo:

Wait a minute Tyrone… The key word is I MAY do these things… MAY, okay?

Tyrone Tourette:

Let me get your key and unlock your door. You are talking to Tyrone baby, I know what you do.

Nicky NLD;

Come on TS,  ease up off of Catrina  Schizo. This is a big deal for her. Remember we use to force her to talk. We knew when she didn’t take her medication and wasn’t in therapy.  I did not like seeing her  in a catatonic state. She shut down as tight as a drum and was upset about it. I mean agitated.

Tyrone Tourette:

Look at you Nicky NLD, using analogies. I remember when you didn’t do double meanings.

Nicky NLD:

I have gotten better. As long as the person who uses the analogy explains it right away.  I won’t get lost in the conversation. Are you going to tell the story or not?

Tyrone Tourette:

Be patient Nicky NLD. I want people to know some things about me and Catrina Schizo. There is no shame in our game.

Nicky NLD:

You are right. People learned about me in the Who In The World Is NLD. Go ahead man. Do your thang.

Tyrone Tourette:

Tourettes syndrome (TS) is noticed around 7-10 years of age. It shows no prejudice. Tourettes syndrome can affect anyone. Men are affected three times more than women. It can last a lifetime. In ones teens it can get butt-ugly. Later on they may improve in the late teens on into their adulthood.

Catrina Schizo:

I want to learn more about your motor tics.

Tyrone Tourette:

Sure, sometimes they are simple motor tics. These are brief and I don’t use a lot of muscles. I can have eye blinking, making faces (grimaces),  jerking the head or shoulders or shrugging shoulders. With vocalizing tics I will clear my throat repetitively, sniffing, making grunting sounds, or barking. I use more muscle with complex tics. You can get the combo like at McDonald. I can make faces, twist my head and shrug my shoulders. There are times when people think that I’m doing the other complex tics on purpose. These are hopping, jumping, bending, sniffing, twisting, and touching objects. There are times when I have phrases of words that sounds like gibber-jabber. It can get really bad if I do harm to myself and I punch myself in the face, or the cursing (coprolalia) or echolalia (repeating word or phrases of others).  Who do you know that does that hopping around thing?  Don’t answer that. That is another story another day.

Catrina Schizo:

I bet people think you are crazy.

Tyrone Tourette:

How are you going to call somebody crazy?  Are you sure this is me you are talking to and not someone you think you see or hear?

Catrina Schizo:

Do you really want to find out if I’m violent are not? You know, I have grown pretty fond of you. Sometimes we have the tendency to hurt the ones we are closest to.

Tyrone Tourette:

Girl, don’t make me unfriend  you and push the button. I do have a Facebook account and I will Tweet you out.

Nicky NLD:

Is your collar on that shirt too tight around your neck? I hope your shirt is the right size. The last time you had neck tics.

Tyrone Tourette:

It’s all good. The last time I had tried to suppress my tics,  it only made them worse. I do better when my tics are expressed. Letting it build up is not good for me at all. A lot of times people think I’m doing this on purpose. I don’t  know what causes Tourettes Syndrome. Let’s put it this way, I have unintentional behaviors that I don’t plan. It happens and my brains plays a big part in the way I react. These neuro-behavioral problems can be caused by not paying attention, hyperactivity, and being impulsive. The guys (disorders) that hang out with me and are associated with me is OCD and ADHD. Even though my buddies know I can suffer from depression and anxiety they still remain to be my friends.

Hey Catrina Schizophrenia you are up to bat. Tell us about yourself.

Catrina Schizo:

I have some positive symptoms about me.

Nicky NLD:

Is that positive good or positive bad?

Tyrone Tourette:

How can a positive symptom be bad?

Nicky NLD:

Tyrone TS , you are full of your ignorant oil (liquor). You can be HIV Positive, that is not good, and you could be like Catrina Schizophrenia, very delusional and not being able to face reality.

Catrina Schizo:

If you guys let me finish, I’ll tell you the rest.

Tyrone Tourette:

Ahhhhh Yeah Baby, Take us there (too much to drink).

Catrina Schizo:

As long as I take my meds, I’ll do okay. I do have psychotic behavior. Sometimes I lose touch with reality. This can come or go. Right now I’m not the healthiest person.Yes, I do hallucinate. I just really need to keep up with my treatment.

Tyrone Tourette:

I’m hallucinating right now.

Nicky NLD:

Tyrone you have  enough green beer and Irish cream Whiskey in you already. I can’t tell you from Catrina Schizo.

Catrina Schizo:

It’s not like that Tyrone. I hear voices. My voices talk to me about the way I’m behaving. My voices order me to do things, alert me of dangers, and my voices can talk to each other.I had been hearing voices for a very long time before my family found out.  Bruce Willis could see people in the movie Sixth Sense. I see people too. I can feel people touching me. I can smell odors that others can”t smell. People try to tell me it’s nothing there but I know for a fact I see objects.

Tyrone Tourette:

You got some skills. Did you take your meds before you came out? You still go to treatment?

Nicky NLD:

Let her finish.

Tyrone Tourette:

Just checking Baby, this is the TS.  I did not want my tics to come out and play.

Catrina Schizo:

I am delusional. Many times people have proven me wrong and showed me what I am believing isn’t true. My delusions can get pretty bizarre. One time I thought Rachel Maddow was broadcasting my thoughts over her  TV program. Chaka Khan was out impersonating me. My boyfriend, Kanye West  was mad because my album came out before his. He started cheating on me, then he tried to poison me. I reported him to the police for harassment. He had been spying on me for months.

Tyrone Tourette:

Your mind works like that for real?  Girl I will trade you my disorder. I hope Jennifer Hudson got over me. I know she got married but she still wants me. Right.

Catrina Schizo:

These are things I believe. It is called delusions of persecution.

Tyrone Tourette:

Wooooh, I think you sobered me up. I have got to keep my eyes on you.

Catrina Schizo:

Sometimes it’s hard organizing my thoughts to make logical sense. I talk nonsensical and in garble. It is hard to understand me. I have thought blocking. When I am talking to a person it feels like someone kidnapped my thoughts. You know what, I can even make up meaningless words called neologisms.

Nicky NLD:

I know someone who acts this way.

Tyrone Tourette:

Who?

Nicky NLD:

My girlfriend.

Tyrone Tourette:

Oh Man, you sure you don’t want to crash at my house until you have a talk with your girlfriend?

Nicky NLD:

Thanks for the offer but I can’t prolong what I suspected all the time.

Tyrone Tourette:

The offer stands whenever you are ready.

Catrina Schizo:

I’m not finished. I have body movement that I do over and over when I get agitated but not like yours Tyrone Tourette. Back in the day when there was little treatment, I would be in that catatonic state not responding to others. My main course meal is I hear voices. The negative symptoms are tricky and hard to identify. People mistake them for depressions or other symptoms. It disrupts ones normal emotion and behaviors. You notice how Merindia’s face doesn’t move (flat affect) and her voice is dull. It always seems to be  monotone. No matter how hard she tries she never sticks to her planned activities. You have to stick a crowbar in her mouth to force her to speak.  She needs help with everyday tasks and I would constantly get on her about her hygiene. She was a hot mess. I thought she was lazy and trifling but this was all because she is schizophrenic. Nicky NLD you remember Rita?

Nicky NLD:

Yeah, I had a crush on Rosy Cheeks Rita. What happen to her?

Catrina Schizo:

She had some psychological testing. Her working memory wasn’t working. She didn’t have the ability to use information immediately after she learned it. Rita never stayed in focus or paid attention. Rita had problems with understanding the information to make a decision. This is call poor executive functioning. Cognitive symptoms are hard to find unless they are tested for.  These symptoms are understated. It was hard for her to keep a job, lead her life, and she was emotionally stressed out.

Nicky NLD;

That is a lot of information on my home girl. Hey, can we get to the story now?

Tyrone Tourette:

Yeah, this is the new and improved Clarence Update.  St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March the 17. This is the day that St.Patrick died. We associate this day with the color green,  leprechauns, fairies, shamrocks, snakes, corn beef and cabbage, Irish music, green beer and Irish Creme Whiskey, and of course the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The Shamrock was a sacred plant that represented the rebirth of spring. The Celts called it a “seamroy”. The shamrock later represented the Irish breaking out and expressing themselves and taking pride in their culture and advocating for rights to be who they are. The English began to take over the Irish land and  they didn’t want the Irish to speak their language nor practice their religion, which was Catholicism. The Irish said, “screw this we are wearing our shamrock and since we like music we are going to sing it to the tune of Cool Moe Dee, How You Like Me Now”.  This pissed Queen Lizzy No.1 off.  Every artist and piper that was Irish got the axe. Nicky NLD you really are going to like this.

The Celts expressed themselves verbally. Since the APA(American Psychiatric Association) won’t open up a community for you this would have been the perfect place.  They rocked the house with their verbal expression of story telling, singing and dancing. Their oral culture  of religion, history, and their folklore was passed down through the ages.

They got a little depressed but they never stopped singing “I’m Coming Out” by Diana Ross. Since they never gave up, today they’ve got popular bands like the Chieftains, Clancy Brothers, and Tommy Makem. You just keep singing that tune “Hold on I’m Coming” by Sam and Dave.

That story about the snakes was made up. St Patrick didn’t go up on a rock and banish thousands of snakes.  He took his behind up there. He drove his Orkin’s truck and pulled out his Real Kill snake spray gun. The snakes were  a metaphor to get rid of the idea of worshiping all those crazy statutes the English worshiped.  Their traditional meal was always cabbage and corn beef.  Corn beef didn’t show up until the turn of the century.  The corn beef got pricy . So the Irish immigrants, now living in New York City on the lower east side, found a way to save money by bringing home the bacon and frying it up in a pan. They got the hook up from their Jewish neighbors and all went well.  Then you had shorty running around. These were the leprechauns known as “”.

Little dudes with tree stump bodies.  They were so paranoid about their pot of gold. They used voodoo, hoodoo, and doo doo to protect their funds.  The Leprechauns didn’t have any thing to do with St. Patrick’s day. Do you see how lies get started?  In 1959 Walt Disney got creative and threw the leprechauns in the mix.  In 1962 Chicago River has become  famous for being dyed green on St. Patrick’s Day.  The Irish grew in numbers and became the Green Machine and gain Respect just like Aretha Franklin’s song. They are no longer considered the Drunken Monkeys.

Catrina Schizo:

Can you get me a date with one of those little guys?

Nicky NLD:

See what you did, Tyrone Tourette. You know Catrina Schizo doesn’t need any more false reality in her head.

WARNING: To all those who read this story…  if there is anything in this story that sounds like you,  a friend,  or a family member, get to a doctor immediately. We don’t want any Shame In Your  Game.
