Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month
May is Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month and before it ends I'm following up with people that I have queried re having me on their radio or television program.
My brainstorming re a pitch is still in progress; but since we are already near the halfway mark for this month, I better just send them out. The follow-up which I’m still working on will include this:
NF is an abbreviation for no fun and it also stands for the genetic condition known as neurofibromatosis (a disorder that I have had no birth) which is certainly no fun. I have published a number of entries on my blog re my experiences of having NF.
I’ve also discussed my experiences of being bullied because of it during my presentations on birds where my focus is the implications for understanding the similarities of human behavior and the behaviors of members within the avian community. The topics I have covered in my presentation include how birds teach us about the human race in such matters (to name a few) as finding our voice, ways in which we compensate our behaviors to meet our needs, accepting our physical appearances, and how bullying impacts our lives.
