In the beginning the Rings of Power were created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
"And I’ve got friends on the other side…"
Okay I swear I’ll stop doing these now.
I just had to try my hand at Doctor Facilier.

I’m usually not the one to ask for help but this time I just can’t look away. Below there’s a plea for help from a wonderful Lithuanian girl, Liucija, who’s suffering from a rare degenerative disease, Generalised Torsion Dystonia (wiki page on Torsion Dystonia here). The only way to improve her rapidly progressing condition is a Deep Brain Stimulation procedure (wiki page here).If there’s is any way you could help Liucija, do not hesitate to do so. Every little thing matters and your help would be more than appreciated. Please spread the word. Original post on facebook here.
Where you are, I am there too…
these words reflect what is very important to me at the moment.
Hello. My name is Liucija. I am a 23 year old psychology student at the Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania. When I was 10 years old, I was diagnosed with a rare degenerative disease – Generalised Torsion Dystonia. It all started with the spasm in the right hand when I was writing (Writer’s cramp). When I learned to write with my left hand, the spasm spread into the left hand too. A few years later, I started feeling spasm in my right leg and later – in my left leg (inversion with plantar flexion). This affected my walking, which became uncoordinated and extremely challenging.
As time passed by, it was harder and harder to write and walk. I had to invent new ways to study at school and university. The computer helps to some extent but gradually my spasms are getting worse and worse. Now I can use only my left hand to type. My walking is also getting worse all the time – gradually involving my torso, back, feet and toes, and it limits my active lifestyle a lot.
I was very happy to be able to draw and dance, despite all my symptoms. These two things helped me to cope with this disease and difficulties caused by it, to express myself through music, dance and creativity. They helped me to relax and gain more strength to fight it with. (Please see some of my artwork and dance shows in the links below.) However, even these two things are being gradually taken away from me… Now the easiest form of self-expression is photography. I love wandering in the forest and going to towns on my electric bike and noticing little “miracles” through the lens. But now I find even cycling on electric bike very challenging and tiring.
My condition is rapidly getting worse. In the last 2 years, spasm has spread to my neck. I often lose my balance and sometimes fall which results bruising and breaking my bones. I need to do something to stop this disease from progressing and improve my health. I have tried different medicine and Botox injections to the deep muscles of my legs, but they have had little effect.
The only way to improve my condition is DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) surgery, which requires great precision and expertise. This spring, I was consulted by neurosurgeon-neurologist Prof. Joachim Krauss in Hanover, Germany. He has specialized in Dystonia treatment by DBS surgery since 1987 and has already done around 700 DBS surgeries. In his opinion, DBS surgery could improve my symptoms by 90 percent.
After my extensive research about the surgery and its results and consequences on the patients, and my consultation with Prof Krauss, I booked myself in for the surgery on October 20th, 2014.
The surgery costs 35,000 Euro.
I sincerely ask you for your help and support – whether it would be a donation towards my surgery or any ideas on how to raise some money towards it. Your every gesture will mean a lot to me and will be so much appreciated.
Please share my message with everyone you know and let me know if you know somebody who I could personally approach for help.
Thank you for any help you can provide me with.
