Default Re: It's over, we have a cure!!!

If she's symptomatic (i cant see the videos cos they're banned from work ever since the last video incident that was purely accidental as I didnt realise the true meaning of 'click here for a good time') then she either truly believes this coffee malarky or she needs money badly and came up with this... I guessing what with the extortionate cost of health care in the states its probably the latter.

Just be glad your not in the states, Ive seen families out here that have been financially ruinned because there child had brain issues after a car accident that wasnt even their fault, it really is shocking.. Vote Obama!

Myrna

I have to agree since watching the video ( walking in heels ) yes she can walk but the hand gestures and facial tics whilst doing it speak volumes ...I think we should give her a break not meant to upset anyone but I posted before myrna's link and Kath I agree it should not have been published at all. Thanks Matt for pointing us in the direction to begin with I guess someone is making ( or will inherit ) a fortune out of her misfortune (sadly )
take care

Having posted earlier I now feel very :(
I do hope that people just haven't found a way of exploiting someone becasue that isn't gonna help at all!
Having now looked at the videos I'm concerned now more than my original anger & flippancy

To be honest, If it had been Rikki, I'd have encouraged her to go ahead & do it. If it helped her, thats all that would have mattered.
I'm sure she has people who care for her. I feel sorry about all the stick she is getting. I also think good on her for using her brain. The main thing is that everyone just take it as a pinch of salt. She hasn't hurt anyone. We're already told we should cut back on caffine.

It makes my heart smile to think she would have felt 'so special'.
The smile on Rik's face when she felt good, should have been bottled & sold.

Myrna,

I can truly empathise with your point of view, and yes as long as no harm comes from it who cares. I do however feel that those who arn't so well informed about HD. Checking amazon for the first time and taking this book too seriously, also we know how pHDs can sometimes fixate on things. Imagine if your Phd family member saw this and though they would be cured by not drinking caffine, how terrible would they feel as symptoms progress.

Sorry to be such a libran but i'm still inclined toward the "it wasn't a good idea" theory, but still understanding your views and agreeing with them somewhat.

A week or so of headaches from withdrawals won't kill anyone though.
Its really not a big deal.

I feel sorry she's paid money to get it published. Just like I feel sorry for people who pay a fortune on herbal remedies to cure HD.

I don't know where I read it but apparantly she paid to have it published.

Ah you just said that. I need to slow down when I read.
