"This is a quick reply to Sonia about the shunt. I imagine that there are other ways to deal with swelling of the brain, using drugs and hormones - cortisone, dexamethasone (I'm not real familiar with these). A certain amount of swelling is…"

"Arthur, Great to read you.  Your injuries sound so similar to my partner's, worse even - although with diffuse axonal it is pretty impossible to know the extent really. You were close to the same age - he was nearly 50.  One…"

"Hi Sonja, Your comments are fascinating.  My partner, with a very similar injury to your daughter's, has also benefited a lot from chiropractic.  Singing lessons have also helped a lot in self-monitoring, posture and, I believe,…"

"I had another idea.  Ask your brother why he doesn't want to take the meds or why he thinks he cannot.  There may be some reason that you can use to talk him into it or, you never know, he may have a good reason. best,"

"Dear Dianne, It is sometimes overwhelming isn't it?  You can just get too tired and sad to think. Even a little break can make you feel more sane and less hopeless. You can only do what you can do. You sound like a wonderful sister. First,…"
