Adverse Childhood Experiences
I wanted to set a link up to this blog from early 2010, which has a good response from a Lumigrate customer/follower, which had good reader #s and also has good links out to other sources of information.
Here is a wonderful message I received after someone disclosed their history/'story' to me, and I requested putting it in the FMS Story forum. I hope you read it and find it as interesting and 'GRATE' as I do!
Sorry it has taken me a while to reply. I have been inundated and I wanted to give myself the time needed to understand what Lumigrate has to offer those of us who have, if lucky, received a diagnosis of FMS, CFS or related conditions and the many who fit the criteria but have gone undiagnosed. read more »
I picked up a copy of the "Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Questionnaire: Finding your ACE Score" handout when Chris and Cheryl Young of Behavioral Health and Wellness in Grand Junction (Colorado, USA) were displaying a poster at last week's Integrated Care Council of Mesa County mixer and presentation. read more »
Two months ago, my sister, her husband and I were joined by our friends and family to celebrate a life that had passed on Labor Day -- that of my father. It was a beautiful fall day in a chapel at the top of a mountain outside of Denver, Colorado with pine trees out the door and window and an interesting history of people collecting to come pay their respects. The pace and theme of the service had been kept very much like a music program because it was put together by music teachers (sister and her husband), with my more serious piece interjected which reflected what I do for a read more »
I wanted to stop by Lumigrate and briefly introduce myself today, as we're recording our first podcast today related to my history with Mardy in treating patients with head injury and other neurologic issues, which lead to a flow of people with fibromyalgia and inspired us to collaborate on creating something that was named by the participants in Grand Junction 'Fibromyalgia Forum'. We plan to also record something about how that lead to my revitalized interest in the work of Dr. read more »
This is from a blog I posted in February of 2010 which I wanted to copy and place here where it might be seen by people becoming educated about fibromyalgia. Since most people who have FMS have a history of adverse childhood experiences (trauma in childhood), this is very important to be included here. Dr. Young and Cheryl Young, who I have heard present on this topic about three times now and who have themselves seen Dr. Perry presesent on this topic are very valid allopathic practitioners and they do their research and support it with their references. And I know Dr. read more »
I'm very much looking forward to the continuing education at our local 'big hospital', St Mary's, today. The topic is 'Child Abuse' and I hope to see Chris and Cheryl Young there, since that is 'her thing'. Just over two years ago, she was scheduled to present at the Fibromyalgia Forum we held in 'our building' where we saw patients two floors apart yet managed to communicate effectively due to my willingness and time availability to run up the stairs or take the elevator up to catch them. Suffice it to say that her powerpoint presentation on Adverse Childhood read more »
