Navigating Alzheimer’s with Poetry: Insights from Caregivers and Poets

Welcome to another insightful episode of Untangling Alzheimer's and Dementia, and a replay of our recent book club with Aging and Amazing. In this episode, we bring together a panel of poets who share a common thread—each has navigated the challenges of caring for a loved one with dementia. Your hosts, Marianne Sciucco and Ann Campanella, along with guest authors Daniel Potts, MD, Sue Fagalde Lick, Sherri Levine, and Margaret Stawowy delve into the world of poetry as a powerful outlet for expressing the complex emotions tied to Alzheimer's and dementia care. Listen as these courageous caregivers discuss how poetry provides solace and a sense of connection amidst the trials of caregiving. From Sherri Levine's poignant reflections on taking flowers to her mother in hospice, to Margaret Stawowy's candid portrayal of medicating her mother, and Dan Potts’s therapeutic use of art and poetry to connect with his father, each story shines a light on the personal battles and moments of tenderness that define the caregiving experience. We also have laughter amid the hardships as Sue Lick shares a day in the life at a nursing home through her evocative poetry. Don't miss her heartwarming tale of memory care residents joyously indulging in ice cream. Tune in to find inspiration, empathy, and perhaps a new way to process your own experiences through the beauty of poetry. Three Key Takeaways 1. Therapeutic Expression: Poetry serves as a potent form of therapy, helping caregivers process complex emotions and find joy amidst adversity. 2. Community and Support: Sharing stories and artistic expressions can cultivate a community of support, making the dementia journey less isolating. 3. Finding Humor: Embracing moments of joy and laughter is crucial, as highlighted by our lighthearted story, showing the importance of positivity in caregiving. About the Authors Sherri Levine, Stealing Flowers from the Neighbors Sue Fagalde Lick, Gravel Road Ahead Daniel Potts, MD, Bringing Art to Life Margaret Stawowy, co-editor of Storms of the Inland Sea, an anthology with Jim Cokas About the Moderators Ann Campanella, What Flies Away and The Beach Poems Marianne Sciucco, Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer's love story Pre-order our new anthology, Poetry for the Dementia Journey.

I Have a Brain Tumor, Can It Be Removed? (with Edjah Nduom, MD)

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT BRAIN TUMORS! We try to keep it simple here on YDF, but today it IS brain surgery! We are rounding out Brain Tumor Awareness Month! Building on our conversation last week with Alyx Porter, MD, re: how to know if you could have a tumor, this episode focuses on the other side of the conversation. Let's explore treatment! More specifically, answering the question, "I have a brain tumor, can you remove it?" Cue our UNBELIEVABLE guest, Neurosurgical Oncologist, Edjah Nduom, MD, FAANS! Dr. Nduom is the Daniel Louis Barrow Endowed Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at Emory University School of Medicine. He serves as Leader of the Brain Tumors Disease Group for Winship Cancer Institute.

He is also accomplished in basic, translational, and clinical research, developing new immune therapy treatments for malignant brain tumors. Dr. Nduom's clinical specialty is the surgical management of brain and spinal cord tumors. Topics covered in today's episode: What are common types of brain tumors and their treatment options? What kind of specialist should you see if you are diagnosed with a brain tumor? Should you get a second opinion? Which tumors should be surgically removed? Should people get routine brain or body scans to look for brain tumors? What are common surgical techniques for removing brain tumors? Are brain tumor surgeries done while the patient is awake? Does brain tumor DNA typing help to guide treatment? And much, much more! Thanks for tuning in, folks! Please sign up for our "PULSE CHECK" monthly newsletter!

I Have a Headache, Do I Have A Brain Tumor? (with Alyx Porter, MD)

It's Brain Tumor Awareness Month! Have you ever felt perhaps "too aware" - letting your imagination run amok and ponder if its reaaally just a headache, or maybe something a bit more serious? Most folks can relate. Sometimes we jump to "worst case scenario" when appraising our symptoms, as a defense mechanism. We want to feel prepared, feel like we are one step ahead, that we can control the situation. We also love that sweet release when we realize that it WAS just a headache after all. It can be an exhausting cycle. How do you know if you're one of the "worried well" or if there's really something there, especially when it comes to brain tumors?? Cue today's unbelievable guest, Alyx Porter, MD, FAAN! Dr. Porter is the Director of the NeuroOncology Section at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and is an Associate Professor of Neurology. Having been with Mayo for over two decades, she has worked diligently to provide care for patients with tumors and cancers involving the nervous system in addition to patients who have neurologic complications resulting from their systemic cancers. Her research interests are aimed at ensuring that patients with brain cancers have the best quality of life as possible. She is also co-author of the book, Navigating Life with a Brain Tumor, a resource for patients and families. She and her husband, Dr. Gregory Umphrey founded a national non-profit in 2019, ElevateMeD. To date, ElevateMeD has awarded over $1,000,000 in scholarships and support to medical students from underrepresented backgrounds. ElevateMeD is committed to elevating the field of medicine by providing financial support, mentorship and leadership training to future physicians from racial and ethnic backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. Sometimes it's a tumor. Sometimes it's not. Either way, be informed, be prepared, keep asking questions and listen to Your Doctor Friends :) Thanks for tuning in, folks!

They are here now.  We must act, the suffering is immense. They show us what is improvable and therefore inform clinical trial design. They are not compromising other trials.  And to even suggest that is unethical if it suggests people should hold off on helping patients.  How about we just diagnose more kids?  Or think harder about which kids go to which trials? Precision Genetic Therapies are going to be more effective than repurposed drugs, people will happily participate in trials.   Review of repurposed drugs: RAVICTI Rx- 10+ patients with Dr. Grinspan, not all but a few have had significant seizure reduction.  I remain worried about cost and look to STXBP1 and SLC6A1 for guidance here. NORTRIPTYLINE Rx - Has helped me, a handful of families are getting a Rx.  I am hopeful that some researcher does an investigator led trial.  But until then, ask your Neuro. ACETYL-LEUCINE is a Nutraceutical - Update 1 has really been noticed and Update 2 will share a few potential mechanisms of action.  Many are trying this drug from https://bit.ly/tanganil24 Encouraging… no, updating.  Please share data with us if you are trying.  We are collecting case studies for Update 3.  Thank you to the team here.   NEWLY DIAGNOSED?

Don’t Hesitate Getting A 2nd (3rd, 4th or 8th!) Medical Opinion

Getting a second opinion can give you peace of mind that a diagnosis is right and that you know all the possible treatment options. In this episode, John talks about his journey with prostate cancer and the steps he took to get multiple second opinions before selecting the treatment that felt right for him. Was it hard? Yes. Was it worth the effort? Absolutely. Key Takeaways ·     Get educated about your medical condition. Don’t just rely on what the doctor explains in the office. ·     Get a 2nd opinion (and 3rd and 4th ones if necessary) if you have ANY question about your diagnosis or treatment plan. The physicians you choose should be in a different practice so they offer a completely objective opinion regarding your care. ·     Tap into your network of family, friends and colleagues to find other patients with a similar medical condition. Zoom in on the doctors whose name keeps coming up, and then do online research to check their credentials and read patient reviews. ·     Getting in to see specialists can be slow. If you want to get in sooner….get yourself on a waiting list, get to know the office staff, and keep calling back. And, of course, be pleasant.

I Get Dizzy Standing Up, Do I Have POTS? (with Camden Hebson, MD)

Have you ever stood up quickly and felt a little lightheaded or felt your heart racing? What if, out of the blue, that started happening EVERY TIME YOU STOOD UP? This can be reality for folks with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), or other forms of "orthostatic dysfunction". It can be quite debilitating, especially since it seems to target young athletic folks. Also, like many other health conditions which can manifest as nebulous, subjective symptoms (fatigue, dizziness, heart racing, brain fog, etc)- patients with POTS often feel misunderstood, ignored, and gaslit by their healthcare providers (who may not be well trained in these conditions.) Let's fix all that, shall we?? Your Doctor Friends came across a great article in the Washington Post titled "They're young and athletic. They're also ill with a condition called POTS" that featured our guest today, Camden Hebson, MD (as well as his colleague at University of Alabama Birmingham, Sara Gould, MD). Among other expert opinions in the article, Dr. Hebson outlined the increasing diagnosis of POTS, especially in young athletes. What is it? Who gets it? Why do we think this happens? How can we manage it? Resources for today's episode include: UAB website for Dr. Hebson's and Dr. Gould's Sports Medicine Cardiology Clinic for Young Athletes. The website for Dysautonomia International, a great advocacy organization for folks with POTS, and other similar autonomic nervous system dysregulation conditions. Vanderbilt University Autonomic Dysfunction Center website outlining all their recent research projects and publications. Cleveland Clinic's website on POTS. Thanks for tuning in, folks!

Does My Child Have Scoliosis? (with Chris Dewald, MD and Lauren Higginson)

Do you remember "scoliosis check" during middle school? That embarrassing moment where, as a 12/13 year old, you had to do a shirtless forward fold in front of the school nurse?? MORTIFYING. Perhaps you never had to live through this torture. Or perhaps, even WORSE, you were told by said nurse that your screen was POSITIVE, and now your parents had to know! And they would have to *gasp* take you to the doctor to DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN! Nightmare! Well, thankfully we've come a long way since then! And today we have insights from TWO guests in the world of scoliosis to educate us! We invited our friend and colleague, Chris DeWald, MD, who between him and his father, have over 60 years of experience treating scoliosis patients. Dr. DeWald is an orthopedic spine surgeon at Rush University Medical Center, who specializes in spine deformity, and is legit one of the kindest people on the planet :) And to add a different dimension, we asked Lauren Higginson, the founder of Higgy Bears, and a scoliosis patient herself, to give her insights into living with this condition, the observations she has from her community and her thoughts on screening.
