Ataxia and TBI
My 29 year old son had a motorcycle accident in October of 2006. He suffers from ataxia, which interferes with his daily living and therapy. We have tried all sorts of meds... I took him off of everything - didn't notice any difference and now the neurologist started him on mysoline. Has anyone tried, or know of, any other meds or natural substances??? I also have him on neuro optimizer. He is also very depressed and wishes he were dead.. took him off 2 different anti-depressants and he was better for awhile, but now back to the depression. Would appreciate any comments or advice. Thank you - Cherie - Shauns Mom

Hi everyone,I sustained my TBI over two years ago, when I was 17. A 40 lb saddle decided that falling two feet onto my head was a good way to add some excitment to my life. My parents have been after me to find a support group where I can talk to others who are going through, or are going through what I am.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
