Turning down the Heat
It’s a very scary word. Nearly one million Americans suffer some form of this brain
By Susan Weiner
Joseph Reiss was short and burly, with a full head of white hair and lively brown eyes. Like most street-tough New Yorkers of his generation, he was a self-reliant man with an unpredictable resume who, over the years, supported his family as a bus driver, ice cream shop vendor, gas station owner and barkeep. He smoked cigars, drank whiskey and black coffee, ate steak for breakfast and popped jalapeno peppers into his mouth as snacks, savoring each one like a sugared candy.
One morning, Joe awoke to find that his speech was slurred, his movements awkward. The 68-year-old adamantly refused to see a doctor. Unable to feed himself or tie his shoes, and days after his right arm stopped working, his family—my family—brought him to a hospital. Over the next five months my grandfather deteriorated rapidly; he lost his ability to speak, developed agonizing bedsores and could not recognize some of us. In the end, withered and powerless to put thoughts into words, he died in his hospital bed.
Missoula Adult Asperger Support Group
Dates: 11/24/2011 – 11/24/2111
1st United Methodist Church Missoula
300 E. Main St
We are a support group for adults 18 and older professionally or self- diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. (So far, most of us are 50 and older and recently diagnosed.) We seek understanding of the nature of our difficulties and seek and offer strategies for making our lives richer and more functional. If you think you may be an Aspie and want to learn more about the Syndrome, you are welcome to join us. We will make exceptions to the age restriction on a case-by-case basis. There is no charge to attend, but donations to cover minimal costs are accepted. On the 5th Thursdays of a month (5 times a year) we invite spouses, relatives and friends to join us. Check with us for exceptions to this during this holiday season.
