Take Action!

The RLS Foundation wants you to help us fight back against bad press. To view our Take Action page, click here.

Our most recent bit of bad press surrounds actor Jim Carrey. At a recent rally for autism, Jim Carrey attempted to hound the drug companies and decided to use RLS as his soap box. You can see the video here. The comment comes about 4:12 into the video. We are in no way commenting on the rally, but are upset that a popular actor like Jim Carrey would mock our cause while supporting his own. We are currently attempting to find a place where our members can voice their concerns with Jim Carrey's comment. Please check back. Or, if you know a place where comments could be shared, email Wendi at kitsteiner@rls.org.

I live with a family member in my life, that suffers with Autism, it's no easy thing to live with.

However, I was just as shocked that so many people laughed so hardy and for an extended period of time......and it just proves that unless you live with RLS or someone that does.....most likely you DON"T GET IT!

I won't be seeing any Jim Carey movies for a very long time. No money in his pocket from me!

What a shame that Jim Carrey thinks he is so funny when he is being very hurtful. I have had Restless Leg all my life and I am in my 60's believe me there is nothing funny about it.I feel sorry for him because he doesn't know what he is talking about.. He could have talked all day without bringing up Restless Leg or any thing else that did not pretain to Autism.

What are all these nonsense posts about viagra on RLS site. These should all have been deleted. I certainly won't be posting on this site or reading posts on this site if this is what it is going to be like.

Bettina, we are trying to clean all this up. I apologize for all the "junk" on here and will try to keep on top of it in the future.

5. There are some dogs that absolutely positively can't resist digging, so rather than trying to go against nature and stop them altogether, let's take [url=http://www.paulsmithsunny.com/]ポールスミス 財布[/url] ポールスミス 人気,ポールスミス 送料無料 http://www.paulsmithsunny.com/ a different approach and create a special spot for your dog to dig in. Most dog experts [url=http://www.paulsmithland.com/]ポールスミス 財布[/url] ポールスミス バッグ http://www.paulsmithland.com/ agree [url=http://www.paulsmithcity.com/]ポールスミスバッグ[/url] ポールスミス 財布 http://www.paulsmithcity.com/ that for some breeds it is almost impossible to prevent them from digging 100% of the time, and because your dog enjoys digging so much, train him to only dig in his special spot.
