Osteoporosis Prevention A doctor said to his patient, " You have a slight heart condition, but I wouldn't worry about it." " Really, Doc?" the patient re-plied. " Well, if you had a slight heart condition, I wouldn't worry about it either." We can some-times get the impression that most of the world is more or less out for themselves and that people care little about the plight of oth-ers. But I choose to believe diff er-ently. I believe that a lot of people are basically concerned about oth-ers, even if they don't always know how to express it.  at is perhaps why a certain story, clipped years ago and fi led away, has remained one of my favorites to this day. A trucker relates that he was traveling through rural North Carolina on I- 95 when a brown sedan merged onto the highway. It weaved back and forth be-tween lanes, causing the driver of the truck to shift into a lower gear. At fi rst he thought the driv-er was drunk, but when he came closer, the trucker saw an old man shaking uncontrollably behind the wheel. He noticed a Citizen's Band aerial whipping to and fro as the car jerked between lanes, so he called on the radio: " You in the brown Chevy, if you can hear me, pull over. Pull off the road!" Amazingly, he did!  e truck-er pulled up behind the car and climbed from his cab.  e elderly man staggered from his auto and Your Life Support: Good People Steve Goodier fell into the trucker's arms. He poured out a story of months of fear and pain that accompanied the illness of his only daughter. Now he was returning from the hospital where it was decided that she would cease any further treat-ment. In the hospital he remained " strong" and stoic for his daughter, but out on the road he fell apart.  e two men talked for the good part of an hour.  e father eventu-ally decided to share his pain with his daughter and said he felt good enough to drive home.  e men embraced and the trucker followed him for 50 miles. As they drove along, the two talked together on the radio.  e older man fi nally acknowl-edged that his exit was ahead and thanked his new friend again for the help.  e trucker asked if he could make it home all right and, suddenly, a third voice broke in on the conversation: " Breaker 19, don't worry, good buddy. Go your way. I'll see him home!" Glancing in his mirror, he saw a livestock truck move into the exit lane behind the brown sedan. I think there are good people the world over. People who gladly give that caring touch, a needed warm embrace or a patient and listening ear.  ey are like angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fl y. Look around. You're sure to see one. And look in the mirror. You might spot one there, too. ? Steve Goodier's books & newslet-ter: http:// LifeSupportSystem. com.

Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After you've had chickenpox, the virus lies in-active in nerve tissue and never leaves your body. Anyone who has had chickenpox is at risk for devel-oping shingles - that's more than 90% of the US adult population! Shingles may activate due to low-ered immunity to infections as you grow older.  e risk of shingles in-creases as you age- around 50% of people experience shingles by age 85. Signs and symptoms include: . Pain, burning, numbness or tin-gling . A red rash that begins a few days after the pain . Fluid- fi lled blisters Shingles can occur anywhere on your body, but most often appears on one side of the body, along a rib. Shingles near an eye can result in vision loss. Contact your doctor immediately if you suspect shin- Shingles: Can it hurt me? gles.  ere are medications avail-able, but they work best if started early. For some people, shingles pain continues long after the blisters have healed and can last for months. Known as postherpetic neuralgia, it is caused by nerve damage. Pain can be severe and debilitating, and is often diffi cult and costly to treat.  is is the most common compli-cation of shingles, and occurs pri-marily in people over 50.  e good news is there's a vac-cine that can help prevent shingles. Zostavax is recommended for all adults age 60 and older, whether or not they have had shingles. While the vaccine doesn't guarantee you won't get shingles, it can greatly re-duce your risk of shingles and its severity.  e sooner you get vac-cinated after turning 60, the better your chances of protecting yourself from shingles. Faster SSA Disability Application Process 10' s of 1000' s more people benefi t from a faster and more effi cient process when applying for dis-ability benefi ts, thanks to an ex-pansion in So-cial Security's Compassion-ate Allowances. Compassionate Allowances are a way of quickly identifying diseas-es and other medical conditions that clearly qualify for Social Se-curity and Supplemental Security Income ( SSI) disability benefi ts - allowing for faster decisions in the most obvious cases. Michael J. Social Security Today Mike Baksa Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security, announced 38 more con-ditions added to the Compassion-ate Allowances list, expanding the original list of 50 conditions that was announced in October 2008.  e new conditions range from adult brain disorders to rare diseas-es that primarily aff ect children. "  e addition of these new con-ditions expands the scope of Com-passionate Allowances to a broader subgroup of conditions like early-onset Alzheimer's disease," Com-missioner Astrue said. "  e expan-sion we are announcing means 10' s of 1000' s Americans with devas-tating disabilities will now get ap-proved for benefi ts in a matter of days rather than months or years." In developing the expanded list of conditions, Social Security held public hearings and worked close-ly with the National Institutes of Health, the Alzheimer's Associa-tion, the National Organization for Rare Disorders ( NORD), and other groups. "  e diagnosis of Al-zheimer's indicates signifi cant cog-nitive impairment that interferes with daily living activities, includ-ing the ability to work," said Harry Johns, President and CEO of the Alzheimer's Association. " Now, individuals who are dealing with the enormous challenges of Al-zheimer's won't also have to endure the fi nancial and emotional toll of a long disability decision process." "  is truly innovative program will provide invaluable assistance and support to patients and families coping with severely disabling rare diseases," said Peter L. Saltonstall, President and CEO of the Nation-al Organization for Rare Disorders ( NORD). " On behalf of those pa-tients and families, I want to thank Commissioner Astrue and his en-thusiastic team for creating and now expanding a program that will have a direct impact on the quality of life of thousands of individuals." " We will continue to hold hearings and look for other diseases and conditions that can be added to our list of Compassionate Allow-ances," said Commissioner Astrue. "  ere can be no higher prior-ity than getting disability benefi ts quickly to those Americans with severe and life- threatening condi-tions."
