Head hidden between my knees and hands tight on the base of my neck, I feel
nothing but a small bunch of fragile bones. I start to sob, letting the tears dribble
down my pale skinny legs. I am still crying when I detect a whooshing whisper. I
raise my head and through the tears still fogging my vision I see the water turn
deep red and sizzle, letting out black filaments of smoke. I gape at its evolution,
mesmerized. Then the bubbling subsides, and the surface turns into a smooth
plane of ...

I've tried to put up fences to keep it out, yet seen it slide through the smallest
crack. I've learned to recognise the acrid stench of spray and not let the brain reel
and be sick. It will leave of its own will, any day I could come down stairs to find it
gone. Meanwhile I have to let it stay, and somehow sooth the frightened spitting,
feel the claws flex in my lap. And accept the smoky black slickness of its coming,
and tiptoe through the fragile bones of its killing. The way to work Ground rushes

Think about it: Did you have weak and fragile bones when you were young? No!
The reason you ... Since most of us have already started to experience some
bone loss at this point, our doctors order bone density tests. Osteoporosis is
insidious because you can't see or feel what is happening. Most people who
have the disease don't know it. And then a bone breaks. Each year, half a million
Americans wind up in the hospital because of fractures related to osteoporosis.

Brittle. Bones. Many of us fear that diseases of the brain like Alzheimer's will
sentence us to spend our last years in a nursing home. Actually, it is far more
likely that we will be institutionalized because of broken bones, most commonly
hip fractures. Most of these injuries are the result of bone loss, or osteoporosis, a
disease that is as preventable as it is horrible. Twenty-five million Americans, 80
% of them women, suffer from this debilitating disease, which results in 1.25
million skeletal ...

loved making him laugh but tonight it felt like a special achievement. “Alex. That's
priceless. A million other women would have bowed to her brittle bones and
handed the damned thing over but not you.” “Old people are just normal people

Disability The most currently available statistics for the United States, which are
based on ex- plicitly detailed criteria for disability, state that in 2002, 51.2 million
persons, or 18.1% of the population, had some level of disability, and 32.5 million
, or 11.5% of the population, had a “severe” disability. These figures resulted from
the fifth wave (interview) of the 2001 Survey of Income and Program Participation,
which queried individuals about their functional limitations and ability to perform ...

There are many additional studies supported by the Institute which are not
included in this figure which deal with fundamental aspects of biochemistry,

A case would occur in a city of half a million population only once every 100–300
years. Recent techniques of fibroblast culture and collagen analysis can provide
evidence of defective connective tissue in the absence of overt clinical signs, but
this is not necessarily synonymous with brittle bones. The case report by Ojima et
al. (1994) gives a useful survey of the problem. Bone strength in otherwise
normal SIDS infants has been measured by Morild et al. (1993) to obtain a
baseline for ...
