@alljoinjack Find a Cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).

about our jack


Our son Jack is everything a five-year-old should be. He is cheeky, excitable and a big softy at heart. He loves to make dens, play hide and seek and wave his lightsaber like a Jedi Knight. In a few months time he will start school and cannot wait to begin his journey into the big wide world. But what our beautiful son does not yet know is that he has a terminal, incurable disease.

In October 2011 we received the shattering news that Jack has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Failing a medical breakthrough, Jack’s life will follow a predetermined path, mapped out by this progressive muscle wasting condition. In short, he will no longer be able to walk by the time he reaches adolescence and will lose the use of every single muscle in his body thereafter. He may need spinal rods to keep him upright and ventilation to help him breath. Eventually his heart and lungs will fail and he will die. Read More

DEBATE : Gun Control a Universal Problem!

Gun Control photo: gun control ICG_Gun_Control.jpgHaving seen the recent departure from the USA of UK Journalist Piers Morgan  due in some part by his stance on American Gun laws, I feel it time to re-examine the ongoing controversy from the British perspective but I hope more objectively then our sensationalist fellow citizen ( I am no fan either).

To tell many thousands of law abiding Americans they have to give up gun ownership is a little like saying the Government is taking all the automobiles off the road to stop traffic accidents (wrecks) Unrealistic isn’t it?

Growing up in 60’s London and with access to just 3 TV stations we were treated to many US Westerns and Police dramas all of whom wealding  guns which was alien to us n England, but it was not taken too seriously as an outlaw who was shot in Gunsmoke one week turned up in Rawhide as a sheriff a week later.

I even saw Star Trek characters turn up on Bonanza non of which influenced us kids to go out and take it out on our contemporaries as seems the case of many violent movies and games today!

There are common denominators between those who carried out atrocities at Sandy Hook, 2012 Aurora shootingSpinning gun photo: Fire those pistols mother fucker! spinning-gun-firing.gif  and others has less to do with gun ownership and more to do with the state of mind of the individual who carried out these attacks!
Here in the UK such attacks are rare but the guy who carried out the Dunblane school massacre  of primary schoolchildren and their teacher The man who perpetrated this was hellbent on acquiring 4 hand guns come what may and no law in the land would stop him and why should those who are legally hunting in the nearby countryside be penalised for this?

What needs to happen is for schools and industry to take mental health more seriously, maybe schools can identify a loner, who is not achieving as his\her contemporaries or who maybe being abused within school or home not easy I know! Bottom line is and true anywhere in the world if you are intent on a criminal act you will acquire illegal weapons somehow that no law can prevent!

On a larger scale it is tragic to think of all the lives lost in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere in order to prevent a terrorist attack on home soil could not stop the Boston Marathon bombing  and the murder of Lee Rigby in London!

Is it not time we came at things a little differently?

The Scapegoat of the Narcissistic Personality Disordered Mother

Dedicated to my two children Scott & Layla

This is one of the best blogs I have read in recent times.

Quote one from>      http://echorecovery.blogspot.com.br/2013/08/narcissistic-mother-scapegoat.html

If you are the scapegoat, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you are the one most likely to go searching for answers – and find them. That is because you are the one in the most pain from carrying the burden of blame for the family. The scapegoats are also usually the truly strong ones in the family, as well as being the truth tellers.

I guess you know the bad news. You are blamed for everything. The scapegoats are the ones who allow the rest of the family to appear to be “normal,” purged of their wrongs. Narcissistic personality disordered mothers chronically scapegoat. If everything is the scapegoat’s fault (and it’s not), then the rest of the family can continue to avoid the real issue…
