My Positive Huntington's Website

Postby Heather Dugdale » Tue Sep 04, 2007 10:16 pm

In case nobody here knows. Huntington’s has physical and mental symptoms. I am in the mental phase right now. It includes Anxiety, depression, mood swings, and Hallucinations. Being that, I am a former nurse, I had to make this site. Some of you might gain something through the positive approach. This page has my story. There is care giving tips, an HD Blog, skills for a mentally stable life, treatments, how to help brain fog, and a lot of helpful tips for a better future.

Huntington's is something I am only learning about now. I read in a science magazine that it is on the increase and that there are two possible explanations :

    1) The poor judgement between good and bad by people with Huntington's makes its sufferers more [sexually] promiscuous

    2) Hungtingon sufferers show a marked increase in a protein called P53, which has been linked to a strong immune system. One can then infer that people who are healthier, will be more likely to copulate and reproduce.



These explanations are only related to sufferers whose symptoms are not yet debillitating; mostly young sufferers. I do not know how these relate to you, Heather, but, anyway, I wish you well.
