    Wolram is currently "indisposed".
    I think you guys probably knew more about his recent situation than family were even aware.
    I am able/willing to be contacted (if pm's fail try kia[dot]glitz[at]googlemail[dot]com).
    Fingers crossed that Wollie Ram will soon be back to his usual, entertaining self.

    If the postcard thing is still around I'll gladly send a postcard to anyone in return, as I know it will help bring a smile to his face.

    Kia
    Wollie's daughter

    Re: Wolram

    It's great to hear from you again, Kia. I wish that the circumstances were different. I've been in PM contact with the old fart, but it was limited. I really don't know what's going on with him, other than that he's troubled. That's enough for me. He appears to be a great fellow, and almost everyone here considers him a friend. While I can't speak for anyone else, I will say that I will do anything that I'm physically and financially capable of to help. (Unfortunately, that's somewhat limited right now.)
    While he seems to feel that he's alone, we know that he's very fortunate to have such an awesome daughter keeping an eye on him.

    Not certain what the situation is, but you might want to try taking supplements of Hericium Erinaceum.

    "Our research on components of Lion's Mane mushroom (Hericium erinaceum) and their biological activities in cell culture is a case where positive antidementia results in the laboratory have been confirmed by analogous results in human use. In this article, we will introduce both the results from the laboratory and their clinical application."....

    "Lion's Mane mushroom, therefore, contains at least two types of compounds--the hericenones and erinacines--that strongly stimulate NGF synthesis in vitro. Both of these types of substances, potentially, can cross the blood-brain barrier. The question is, do these substances work when given orally to human patients?

    [FIGURE 3 OMITTED]

    To answer this question, a study was done in a rehabilitative hospital in the Gunma prefecture in Japan, with 50 patients in an experimental group and 50 patients used as a control. (23) All patients were elderly and suffered from cerebrovascular disease, degenerative orthopedic disease, Parkinson's disease, spinocerebellar degeneration, diabetic neuropathy, spinal cord injury, or disuse syndrome. Seven of the patients in the experimental group suffered from different types of dementia. The patients in this group received 5 g of dried Lion's Mane mushroom per day in their soup for a 6-month period. All patients were evaluated before and after the treatment period for their Functional Independence Measure (FIM), (24), (25) which is a measure of independence in physical capabilities (eating, dressing, walking, etc.) and in perceptual capacities (understanding, communication, memory, etc.).

    The results of this preliminary study show that after six months of taking Lion's Mane mushroom, six out of seven dementia patients demonstrated improvements in their perceptual capacities, and all seven had improvements in their overall FIM score (see Figures 3 and 4). A more extensive clinical study is currently underway to further investigate the findings from this small sample."

    Maybe worth a try.

    Re: Wolram

    Update: May 4
    Wolram's much calmer today, managed to get some decent sleep for the first time in ages, which has probably made him feel somewhat better.
    Sends his regards to everyone.
