Thursdays Thoughts ~ October 31, 2013

Thursday Thoughts

I'm so burnt out from testifying at my disability case. The judge asked me numerous questions about my mental health history. ex: suicide attempts, depression, therapy The experience just broke me, I cried and we had to take a 5 minute break. When I returned he continued asking additional questions than decided to end the questioning. He stated a continous, ordered another mental health evaluation and my medical records from San Diego. Ugh!

My pain level is so bad that I've decided to stay in bed, watch lots of QVC~I'm just window shopping!

This was Ricky's best interview, this week!

Former child star Corey Feldman, "Goonies", "Stand By Me" stopped by HuffPost Live to talk with Ricky Camilleri, about his new memoir "Coreyography," what it's like to grow up in Hollywood, his drug use, relationships and more!

When Ricky asked him who he blamed for the sexual abuse, Corey stated, "No, I don't blame them or myself".

Asian Scientist: Women’s Chronic Pain More Complex And More Severe

Asian Scientist (Oct. 30, 2013) –

New research from the University of Adelaide has found that chronic pain in women is more complex and harder to treat than chronic pain in men.

The findings suggest that men and women should be prescribed medications and treated for pain differently according to their gender.

The researchers have been studying why acute pain turns to chronic pain (experienced for at least three months consecutively) in some people and why chronic pain is more prevalent in women than in men.

Study leader Dr Mark Hutchinson says laboratory studies have shown for the first time that the brain’s immune cells, known as glial cells, contribute to differences in pain between the sexes.

“There are fundamental differences in the experience of pain between females and males,” says Dr Hutchinson.

According to Dr Hutchinson, although the initial cause of pain is similar, chronic pain in women is more complex and difficult to treat than in men because of differences in the mechanisms at work in the brain.
