My friend and co-founder of Out-Thinking Parkinson's, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich has released her new book "Second: A Tale of Grief and Puppy Love" which she wrote to help anyone getting over the loss of a canine companion, by sharing her own story and experiences. Available exclusively from her website www.insightsoccur.com. She read it to me and I was totally enrapt in her story.
- 26/08/2016 #11Deb 🐝 Helfrich#10 Thanks so much my dear! It is absolutely essential to understand the responsibility of being a pet companion. And while it is predominantly smooth sailing the beginning and end of the relationship are the periods when we have to be ready to use our human brains in different ways. Since my end and 2nd beginning came so close together, I hope to be able to help others navigate those transitions with a little more preparation.Reply

In the meantime I will use this opportunity to say that Deb's "Second" is available exclusively at www.insightsoccur.comReply
- 02/07/2016 #4Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#2 @Service Dogs and their effect on us: great topic of super importance. @Selim Yeniçeri shared a fantastic, emotional, and life-saving video on the value of a dog in one man's life. And the loss of the dog is something near and dear to you, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich so I wonder if you've seen this video. I shall try to find it.Reply
- 02/07/2016 #3Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#1 @Gary Sharpe, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich: we need all your social media sites, to promote one anothers' books on my Hive (named after myself due to my traumatic brain injuries, so I can find my own string of Hives, (and not self-serving lol @Paul Waters!) Hive: "Dr Margaret Aranda: Stirring Authors Along." Just visited Deb's site and I particularly like the Donations page to further work on neuroplasticity. My first peer-reviewed manuscript was on Increased Intracranial Pressure after Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and now I have suffered two TBIs. So, yes, it is an area of great importance. Please feel free to join my Hive ~ Invisible Illnesses: Traumatic Brain Injury, which will have a supreme overlap with Parkinson's. And just for you to know my empathy, I stayed at my father's side as he died from Alzheimer's disease. I pronounced his death so this is near and dear to me. Can't get any more near & dear.....Reply
