NEW SPORK! Exclusive article - Can't See. Can't Breathe. by SPORK! Founder & Director, Whitney Hill. Read this first-person account of what it's like to go into anaphylactic shock while grappling with a newly diagnosed and rare allergy.

Only at SPORK!

"Within minutes I have eight hands simultaneously checking my back for rashes, sticking ports in my arm and checking my vitals. They ask me for consent in using a breathing tube (luckily, wasn't used), then in one quick action a nurse tells me to take a deep breath and an epi pen is jammed into my upper thigh. In an instant, an IV of steroids and Benadryl begin to rush into my veins and I feel like Frankenstein reborn."

NEW SPORK! Exclusive article by Shalirrah Barksdale, Diagnosis In The Era Of Google.

"The doctor sent me home with a recommendation for a colonoscopy to see if I have inflammatory bowel disease – not to be confused with irritable bowel syndrome. This is where my Google searching picked back up. I furiously searched for answers. What is inflammatory bowel disease? What is the difference between IBD and the more common IBS? Was this disease life threatening?"

Please read SPORK! NEW & Exclusive article by Alane Lim, "When A Blinded Person Sees: Charles Bonnet Syndrome.

A wonderful in-depth and researched article that sheds a lot of light on the hallucinatory syndrome that effects the blind. Only at sporkability.org

"Put another way: instead of existing inside the world of a film, people with CBS are instead watching a silent production unfolding around them, a production of which they are not actually a part. Indeed, the fact that the hallucinations do not directly interact with the individuals themselves often distinguishes CBS from other disorders like schizophrenia. Patients with CBS are well aware that something isn’t quite right. They are lucid, articulate, intelligent; testing negative for a swath of possible psychiatric and neurological diagnoses."
