What It's Like to Have a Stroke at 39

What It's Like to Have a Stroke at 39 Due to the stroke, Susan Wahlmann had aphasia, which is the loss of the ability to understand or speak, caused by brain damage. “As part of my outpatient therapy, I went to a speech therapist for a month,” she says. “She gave me exercises like smiling and then puckering up and relaxing, to exercise the mouth and to get my speech flowing again.” She also worked with a physical therapist and recreational therapist. What made the biggest difference in Wahlmann’s recovery was that she was able to get medical attention so quickly after the stroke. “Luckily I got to the hospital in time to receive early treatment,” she says.

Penn State coach James Franklin opened his weekly press conference with an emotional response to a letter disparaging one of his players — a letter viewed as racist by team members and social media followers.

He never actually mentioned it or the Penn State fan who sent it. The letter condemned the long, flowing dreadlocks of junior safety Jonathan Sutherland, who is black.

Franklin spoke for nearly three minutes about the values of diversity and togetherness created by college football at Penn State and then about Sutherland.

If you're concerned about the noises your neck makes every now and then, don't worry, Wesley Bronson, MD, an orthopedic spine surgeon for the Mount Sinai Health System, told POPSUGAR.

Only after that did he take questions and discuss the big upcoming game at Iowa.

"The football that I know and love brings people together," Franklin said, starting.

"It embraces differences, black, white, brown, Catholic, Jewish or Muslim. Long hair, short hair, no hair. They're all in that locker room together. Teams all over this country are the purest form of humanity that we have.

"We don’t judge. We embrace differences. We live, we learn, we grow, we support and we defend each other. We're a family.

"PSU football brings people together like very few things on this planet."

Why Don’t Hotels Provide Toothpaste?

Why Don’t Hotels Provide Toothpaste? You'd think it would go with the shampoo and soap, wouldn't you? The post Why Don’t Hotels Provide Toothpaste? appeared first on Reader's Digest.

Some Nittany Lions shared the letter on social media. Penn State officials quickly condemned the letter.

It was first posted on Twitter Monday evening by Penn State defensive tackle Antonio Shelton. Later, Shelton also tweeted restraint. "Please do not go on any socials attacking people. That’s not at all why I put the photo of the letter out."

Meanwhile, a Johnstown man who said he wrote the letter, still stands by its message —telling the Tribune-Democrat he never intended to be racist or culturally insensitive.

David Petersen is a 1966 Penn State graduate in speech pathology and is a former Nittany Lion football season ticket holder, according to the article. He told the Tribune-Democrat he had no idea of the uproar he had created.

9 Things Autistic People Want You to Know About Communication Differences

  9 Things Autistic People Want You to Know About Communication Differences Autistic individuals share what they need others to understand about their unique communication challenges.Many misunderstandings can happen when, as neurotypicals, we expect or assume verbal autistics can understand us using the same patterns of communication we are used to. Maxine Share, who is on the autism spectrum and also works as an autism consultant, told The Mighty that, “regardless of verbal ability or intelligence, autism, at its core, is a communication difference.” It is important to note that expressing language can be a challenge, whether someone is verbal or nonverbal.

"I would just like to see the coaches get the guys cleaned up and not looking like Florida State and Miami guys."

Soon after Shelton posted the letter, Penn State officials responded, via Twitter: "While we don’t know the source of this letter or the authenticity, obviously its content does not align with our values. We strongly condemn this message or any message of intolerance."

On Tuesday morning, Athletic Director Sandy Barbour also showed support for Sutherland via Twitter: "I stand with our Penn State student athletes and appreciate how they represent PSU in competition, in the classroom and in the community.  Their dress, tattoos, or hairstyle has no impact on my support, nor does their gender, skin color, sexuality or religion!"

  9 Things Autistic People Want You to Know About Communication Differences Here’s what you need to know about the fall fruit.

"People are going to look different, people are going to sound different, people are going to dress different. It shouldn’t be a concern," Toney said.

"We're going to ignore that and block the hate out. You can't put energy into negative things. ... We're just going to move on from this."

Sutherland is a team captain as a sophomore and a Dean's list student. He told reporters earlier this season that he's worn his long hairstyle since he was about 10 years old and it has become part of his identity.

"I'm pretty sure whoever wrote that letter," Toney said, "if they met Jonathan Sutherland, they'd want their kid to be like him."

Franklin ended his opening statement with a similar sentiment.

He called Sutherland "one of the most respected players in our program. ... He's confident, he articulate, he's intelligent, he's thoughtful. He's caring and he’s committed.

"I would be so blessed if my daughters would marry someone with his character and integrity one day."
