Everyone has anxiety, but it becomes a problem when it starts to take over your life. The ICA Newsroom has talked to many readers that suffer from anxiety so we received permission to re-print two articles by Tracy Shawn about this topic. 

The articles will appear on Thursday and Friday on this web site.

Dear readers,

I want to thank everyone again for their prayers, thoughts, kind words and well wishes. My family and I really appreciate it. It has been a long week, as a family member had to go to the hospital on Tuesday.

Since this is a very private person, I can only reveal so much but I do have GOOD NEWS to report. This family member was released from the hospital this afternoon (the medical team was talking about Monday last night) and is now at an assisted living facility for most likely two weeks before officially coming home.

The weather is getting colder and that usually means Chiari symptoms get worse. 

What is the weather like where you live and how is it affecting your Chiari symptoms?

Dear readers,

Thanks, everyone, for your prayers, thoughts, kind words and well wishes. My family and I really appreciate it. It has been a long day, as all of you know when a family member has to go to the hospital. 

Things are improving. I will be out of the office most of the week and there will be changes to the ICA Newsroom Schedule. For example, the photos and reports from the neuroscience symposium will be re-scheduled for next week. 

I am hoping that things get back on schedule next week, but I know that everyone understands.
