A MESSAGE FROM A FRIEND WHO IS NOW IN IRAQ

477733757_e92802af071.jpgHey Reggie,You most definitely can share this with Lou. If you put it up as part of your blog I’ll be able to answer directly on that.

We do hear gunfire everyday and bombs explosions 3 – 4 times a week. The gunfire I think is from the practice range, but the major explosions I have yet to figure out if they are incoming or outgoing, probably both.

When I originally applied for this job a lot of people ask me why I would want to work in war zones…….I never really told them why but I will tell you why. Continue reading

Questions from Naomi in Japan

bild_027_1151395573.jpgHi Reggie. I am 23 years old and currently living in Japan. Today
was the first time I had ever seen a woman with NF. I was getting
ready to order food from McDonalds, and I noticed that the woman
in front of me. From behind, I hadn’t there was nothing out of the
ordinary, but I soon noticed her enlarged bottom lip and a bit of
sagging to only one side of her face. It was very intriquing to me
and I instantly became very interested to learn more. I was, as
I’m sure most people are, too nervous to “just ask”, as well as
ask in JAPANESE which is my SECOND language and I did not want
anything to get lost in translation. Continue reading

A new friend has joined us, Patricia Stokley

I am so glad I found your web site, I have looked at several different NF websites and all I ever saw was support groups for children, not that I don’t think kids don’t need support, they do, I know how mean kids are so very mean. but adults need support also,

I do feel that I am luckier then a lot of other people with NF, most of my complications are hidden except for my speech I had to take years of speech in school, I could not even call my sister by her name, Linda, it was too hard, my tongue is deform in the back, I have a hard time hearing, I can hear noise, but so many times I just cant understand what is being said, and i know people get aggravated with me when i ask them to repeat themselves more than once, but I just cant understand, I have seizures, and there are few other problems I have I only have a few of the tumors (my mother always called them bumps) and a lot of the cafe spots (my mother called them birthmarks) Continue reading
