An update... [Oct. 8th, 2006|01:56 pm]

...from your slack-ass mod. :)

My life is chaotic. Not always bad, but not always good either. As a result, my LJ duties sometimes suffer. I just wanted to post with some Clear Static updates that you probably already know about anyway.

NEW SONG up on [ their myspace ]. It is fantastic and I love it.

FINAL VERSION of the "Out of Control" video is up on their page, also. It too is fantastic and makes me go "aww..." a lot. >.<

NEW OFFICIAL SITE is up, but still under construction, so stay tuned for that. [ Site here. ]

Also, I hope everyone near the Key Club in Hollywood can attend the Rebecca Fortune Benefit show tonight.

Help SAVE a Life!

Or can at least donate to the cause. (Like I did because I live on the other side of the country.)


Anyway, what does everyone think of the new song? Like I said, I love it and I hope they make their way back to NC so I can actually SEE them live for once.

Rebecca Benefit Concert [Sep. 23rd, 2006|10:38 pm]
We're not falling, we're just drifting...

I am sure that most of you have heard of the benefit concert by now that clear static is performing at. But I wanted to ask you all to read this.... this is Rebeccas last blog on her myspace page. 

know that a lot of people haven't heard of gastroparesis.  We never heard of it until my diagnosis in October of '04.  I've made the offer that if anyone has a question, I'll do my best to answer it for them, or find someone who can.

I've been chatting and emailing an 80+ year old for some time.  She finally started asking me questions about it.  Basically, she wanted to know why I said it was so awful when it only affects my stomach(gastro).  That to me was a fair question, but one from someone who's obviously never had a lingering illness of any sort - and I'm thankful she hasn't.

Here's what I told her: I started out with the yes, you're right.  Gastro Paresis translates to Paralysis of the stomach.  Here's the problem with that, though.  With GP, you can't eat.  If you're lucky enough to take in some solid foods, it's never more than a couple of bites, and you usually get violently sick(vomit) within 30 minutes of eating.  A key symptom of GP is getting sick first thing in the morning.  I've neraly choked because of it.  That's a scary thought.

Our bodies depend on food for so many things.  When you get to where you can't take in food...well...here's just some of the things that I've found have happened:  Bleeding stomach ulcers - my stomach muscles don't move, so food and such would sit in there way longer than it should have, and caused more damage than in someone who's stomach does work.  These ulcers have resulted in me having blood transfusions, and the risks there are astronomical.

Chronic sickness or getting violently sick(multiple times per day every day) I've found these problems with those:  Dental problems...the acid eats through the enamel on your teeth.  Sore throats, pulled muscles, broken rib, tears in esophagus and stomach lining, weakness, fatigue.

Your vital signs change:  the lower my weight got...the bigger the changes.  The lowest my blood pressure was...60 something over 40 something.  One night, they even had to give me a shot into my heart.  Luckily, I don't remember, Steven told me.  My pulse stays around 120 - 130...even while sitting.  Is this good for my heart?  No.

Decreased food/liquid intake causes lower output of urine...leaving doctors to wonder about organ failure, and running the risk of urinary tract infections.

Then there's the whole emotional state.  You don't know what's going to set it off, you try to be prepared, but...You see people look at you're some kind of hideous monster or they look at you with such an air of pity...You lose interest in doing things you've loved(like with me, my beading and cross stitching have been put on hold)  You get irritable.

Also with GP, a complication can be pancreatitis.  Your stomach gets inflamed/aggravated, and your pancreas is right behind it, and they touch.  Pancreatitis is horrifically painful, and it makes you just as violently sick as GP.  Your pancreas creates insulin, so then you run the risk of that production getting screwed up and all of the complications with that.

Then there's your colon.  Food not going into the stomach, means no food and such going through the intestines.  The slower this process is, the worse of a risk of you becoming "impacted".  That is NOT a good thing, and is very dangerous on so many levels.

So, you see, even though it's my stomach that's paralyed...it directly affects all these things I've mentioned, and I'm sure that's not everything.  That is why it's so important that we try to get attention drawn to this disease.  Research desperately needs to be done.

And I know that some may be aggravated with us constantly reposting about the benefit concert.  Without this gastric pacemaker, I'll die.  I'm 32 years old, and still have a lot I want to get accomplished.  With all of your help, I'm making progress.  Please, help us with that too.  Even if you can't make the concert...if you can spare the price of a ticket, it still gets turned over to the benefit fund.  If you can make it to the concert...go and have fun.  It will RAWK!!  *hugs*  ~B~

I hope that after reading that, that you understand the pain and suffering she is going threw.  Please buy a ticket to the benefit and pass this info on to your family and friends.  Rebecca needs our help!! I know that Clear Static fans can come together and sell the key club out!!! Ask all your family and friends to buy tickets too!!

This is so much more important than anything I've posted so far, so I'm not putting it behind a cut. Please, if you can, GO to this show! If you can't go, at the very least repost this and put the banner up on your profile. (i will keep making different banners for the benefit, so watch this space)




This is a concert to benefit Rebecca Fortune.
She has a deadly disease that can end her life. She needs an operation for a gastric pacemaker but it costs $30,000-$40,000, but Rebecca has no insurance. No doctor, nor hospital will perform the surgery without payment in full because she has no insurance. As of right now, she has $3,400.52, now that may seem like a lot of money..but not enough.
She needs your help.

Now, there is a way to help, have fun, and feel great about yourself at the same time!
Thanks to Marcia, there is a show at the Key Club in Hollywood on October 8th, 2006 with manyy amazing, upcoming, Los Angeles bands. She put this whole show together in the past month. Now, let's say thank you and show some support for both Rebecca and Marcia by buying a $25 ticket and attending the show.

Each ticket counts and we all hope to sell out. Even if you can't go, buy a ticket! All the proceeds go to Rebecca's surgery.



The List of bands that will be performing idnclude:
Clear Static
Young Americans
[Young Americans also heard on Kill Hannah's myspace (Lips Like Morphine Remix)]
Rome To Paris
Crash
Curious
Sink To See
Lylah



So, PLEASE, buy a ticket, come to Hollywood, & enjoy the show.



To learn more about Rebecca Fortune, go to Rebeccafortunebenefitfund.com

Thank You.
If you need any more information, go to the Clear Static Message Boards
or message me back, and I'll see what i can do. :]


PLEASE repost.
Tell All Your friends. Tell Everyonee! Every ticket counts!
Thank You!

<3

Marcia has asked me to help her with banners and a few other things. You will see more about this and hopefully we can get together and help Rebecca get what she needs. Thank you for anything you can do.
