    Autism is a term that refers to a collection of developmental disorders that affect the brain. This brain disorder  affects a person’s ability to communicate, form relationships with others, and respond appropriately to the external world. People with autism have a tendency to have repetitive behaviors or interests and rigid patterns of thinking.


    The severity of autism varies greatly. Some people with autism can function at a relatively high level, with speech and intelligence intact. Others have serious cognitive impairments and language delays; some never speak.

     Understand and Prevent Migrain

     

    People who suffer from intermittent attacks of migraine know the symptoms all too well, the inconvenience of unexpected attacks, the frustration of “cures” that have not worked, and the expense of lost work and healthcare.

    Understanding migraine – the different types, the symptoms, and the possible causes -gives you the knowledge to deal more effectively with your condition.


    Migraine is a condition that can affect anyone at any time. Some people are more likely to experience migraine attacks than others but, if the right mix of conditions come together, almost anyone can experience a migraine. It is a condition that affects not just you and your quality of life but your family and friends and colleagues as well. How often have you had to miss a family party, not been able to make an important meeting, had to go to bed early or lost the first three days of your holiday just because of your migraine? By its very nature, migraine is unpredictable. We all like to feel in control of our lives but migraine can strike at any time and often at the most inopportune time. The more you, as an individual, understand about your migraine and how it affects you, the greater chance you have of being able to control your migraine. Or at least feel in control of it some of the time if not all of the time.

  • Think Positively

    Troubles, like babies, grow larger by nursing.

    Lady Holland

    How do you feel when someone unloads all of his problems and complaints on you? Not very uplifting and energizing, is it? The truth is, nobody likes to be around a complainer — except, perhaps, other complainers.


    Self-pity is an acid which eats holes in happiness.

    Earl Nightingale

    The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.

    William Penn

    Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

    Charles Dickens

    (1)   Definitions of ‘spirituality’ in the Oxford English Dictionary run to several pages. This is largely because the word ‘spirit’ has many meanings. These include a sense of loyalty or cohesion (‘team spirit’), an emotional state (‘in high spirits’), a deeper sense of meaning (‘the spirit of the law’), certain chemicals (‘white spirit’) and, of course, strong alcoholic beverages (‘spirits’). There are many interpretations of spirituality, and they all relate to things outside the realms of physical nature or matter. Spirituality goes beyond the appearance of things to their underlying principles or forces. Living spiritually doesn’t necessarily mean following a particular religion, but it does infer understanding that the universe has some order and that the creative force behind it (whatever that may be) is intelligent and purposeful. Spirituality is highly practical. It is about finding meaning and purpose in an apparently imperfect world then using what we learn to create happy, healthy, prosperous and fulfilling lives for ourselves and others. It is not, as we shall see, a special thing to be found in out-of-the-way places – it is Life itself, flowing, ever-present and abundant.

    (2)   Spirituality is founded on an appreciation that the world we detect through our five senses is not the ultimate reality. Objects that appear to be solid are not as solid as we think they are. One of the first to understand this was the Greek philosopher Plato. He realised that everything we perceive through our senses is merely an expression of universal ideas or ‘Forms’. These are independent entities which exist whether or not we are aware of them and able to grasp them with the mind. Love, for example, exists in the universe as an idea; we only become aware of it when it enters our experience. Even then, my experience of love may be different from yours. Meanwhile, the idea of love itself remains constant, permanent and unchanging, as do other universal ideas such as wisdom, justice, honesty, beauty and so on. For more than two thousand years, Plato’s theory was just that – a theory – and could not be proved one way or the other. Then at the beginning of the twentieth century it was verified by scientists when quantum physicists discovered a ‘substance’ or ‘energy’ out of which all physical things are formed. In other words, the universe is not solid at all. It is made of energy – and so are you

    Love, for example, exists in the universe as an idea; we only become aware of it when it enters our experience. Even then, my experience of love may be different from yours. Meanwhile, the idea of love itself remains constant, permanent and unchanging, as do other universal ideas such as wisdom, justice, honesty, beauty and so on.

    The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.

    William James

    You are not what you think you are. But what you think YOU ARE!

    Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

     Never underestimate your power to change yourself.

    H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

    Think, act and talk with enthusiasm and you ll attract positive results.
