Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is a rare brain disorder that causes serious and progressive problems with control of gait and balance, along with complex eye movement and thinking problems. One of the classic signs of the disease is an inability to aim the eyes properly, which occurs because of lesions in the area of the brain that coordinates eye movements. Some individuals describe this effect as a blurring. Affected individuals often show alterations of mood and behavior, including depression and apathy as well as progressive mild dementia.

The disorder's long name indicates that the disease begins slowly and continues to get worse (progressive), and causes weakness (palsy) by damaging certain parts of the brain above pea-sized structures called nuclei that control eye movements (supranuclear).

PSP was first described as a distinct disorder in 1964, when three scientists published a paper that distinguished the condition from Parkinson's disease. It is sometimes referred to as Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome, reflecting the combined names of the scientists who defined the disorder. Although PSP gets progressively worse, no one dies from PSP itself.

Approximately 20,000 Americans—or one in every 100,000 people over the age of 60—have PSP, making it much less common than Parkinson's disease, which affects more than 500,000 Americans. Affected individuals are usually middle-aged or elderly, and men are affected more often than women. PSP is often difficult to diagnose because its symptoms can be very much like those of other, more common movement disorders, and because some of the most characteristic symptoms may develop late or not at all. In rare cases, the symptoms will be more similar to those of Parkinson disease, and some individuals may even have tremors. This version is often referred to as “Parkinsonian PSP” or PSP-P.

    To Peace the epic

    I thought i would be Cinderpelt! XD Bluestar is just as fine. A few good warrior names I made up were: Heathershine; a light brown she-cat with white paws and bright, so-called "Shining" light green eyes(she could be meecat). Next cat: Breezetail . Light grey tom with massive claws, but he is gentle at heart. He has blue eyes. Third cat: Aspenpaw, a she cat. White-and-ginger pelt and amber eyes. She could become best friends with Kate. Her warrior name can become Aspenleaf. Fourth cat: Sootpaw, a tom. Black with amber eyes. His warrior name can be Sootpelt. The fifth and final cat: Nettlestorm, a tortoiseshell she cat with huge green eyes and a fierce personality. Hope you like the names!

    Kate and the Clans ~ Chapter 2

    Even though I'm still lost in the dark, I can feel something nudging my shoulder. I think I hear someone speaking, but I'm not for sure. I think it says "Wake up.". As soon as those words register in my mind, I figure out that I'm sleeping. Or, was. My eyelids open, and I see the cat from before, the gray one. "Ah. Hello, twoleg." The cat says. Wait, cats speaking? I shriek and try to scramble away, but my body feels....wierd. Different. Not only that, but it seems like my hearing ad smelling senses have improved. I look down, and see what's supposed to be my chest covered in golden fur. I scream again, and flatten myself to the ground. "What's happening?" I wail, throughly freaked out. "Twoleg!" The cat snaps sharply, pulling me back from the edge of hysteria. I turn to look at her, my eyes wide. "What's happening?" I repeat, this time my voice weak and quiet. The cat sighs and walks over to me. "Calm down, okay? My name is Bluestar." She says. Bluestar? What an odd name for a cat. "I...I'm.....Kate." I say, sitting up. "Well, Kate, you want to know what's happened? Follow me." Bluestar turns and begins a graceful run. I do as she instructed, having a little trouble in this new body. We run together for a long time. Finally, I see a lake. We go right up to the shore before stopping. "Look into the water." Bluestar whispers. Again, I follow her directions and peer over. What meets my gaze is a rather pretty cat. Golden fur, with random patches of white. Bright, crisp blue eyes. But...wait, doesn't water...reflect? I swivel my head back and forth desperatley, searching for my familiar face. Accept for the cat, I see nothing. I step back, my brething speeding. "That's not me." My voce is dead. No emotion whatsoever, despite the panic I feel bubbling up inside me. "Sit down, Kate. I have a lot to explain, and the sooner you understand, the better." Bluestar says, patting the ground next to her with her tail. I eye it suspicously, and stay where I am. Bluestar sighs, but starts talking again.~~~~~~~~~~So, they gray cat has been revealed. Bluestar will start explainig things in the next chapter. Also, everyone, while I am using the same Clans as in the books, this is many, many years in the future, and all the characters you love and hate are dead and gone(though, maybe I'll stick in a kit of Cinderheart's and Lionblaze's as the oldest elder or something). So, anyway, I need ideas for names/appearances. But I'll only use realistic ones, i.e. no pink cats and no names like Dragonwing. Oh, and, please don't make their appearances complex.~Peace.
