WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS

(now a Major Motion Picture)

 

IN THE PRESS

Echoing the premise and structure of Flowers for Algernon, this frank and inspiring novel shows how a teen’s life changes after he is given an experimental medication to treat symptoms of schizophrenia.

Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

Despite heavy subject matter, Adam is hilarious and infinitely lovable, and the ending is hopeful and realistic rather than happily-ever-after and contrived.

The Hub,

YALSA

Walton has crafted a character with unparalleled likability, a boy whose endearing, witty, introspective commentary allows readers to get inside the head of a person with a debilitating mental illness...Highly recommended.

Okay but for real, here’s THE HONEST BIO.

 

JULIA WALTON was miserable in insurance. She wrote quite a bit of Words on Bathroom Walls on a notepad near her work phone while she was supposed to be, you know, working…So clearly she was a stellar employee and the company was lucky to have her.


Julia talks to herself a lot and cannot pass a reflective surface without checking out her hair. Spoiler...it’s usually a disaster.

She loves avocados, sushi, her mom’s meatloaf, and her grandma’s marinara sauce. If she’s going out to lunch, her go-to meal is a tuna melt on sourdough with sweet potato fries.

She eats candy (Cadbury please) and the occasional, generous scoop of Nutella (Costco size only) in her pantry while her kids are distracted.

She will not put any effort into her ensemble unless her hair is also under control.

She’s afraid of hippos and snakes in that order.

She tells her kids that some shows on Netflix are broken because they are so effing annoying she cannot watch them.

She cannot dance. Or read a map. Or wear high heels.

Sometimes she writes books.

Red Vines are better than Twizzlers.
Pie is better than cake.
Swedish fish and Haribo are superior to all gummies.
Figs and tangerines are underrated.

Blam.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

NKT細胞標的治療はどんな治療ですか?


NKT細胞標的治療は、がんに直接作用させるわけではなく、NKT細胞の免疫機能を利用してがんを攻撃・死滅させていく治療法です。 名称にNKT細胞とありますが、患者さんから採血する成分はNKT細胞ではなく、単球内にある樹状細胞を取り出します。その樹状細胞にアルファガラクトシルセラミドと言われるNKT細胞を活性化させる成分を独自の方法で合成・培養し、それを患者さんに投与するといった治療内容となります。 合成・培養された樹状細胞は、体内にある免疫細胞の司令塔と言われるNKT細胞を活性化させ、そのNKT細胞は、がん攻撃細胞であるNK細胞やT細胞、マクロファージなどを活性化させます。




誰でも治療を受けられますか?


NKT細胞標的治療は患者さん自身の細胞をしようするため、原則としてどなたでも治療を受けることが可能ですが、免疫機能に関わる治療ですので、自己免疫疾患や自己炎症性疾患、妊娠中の方、感染症(梅毒やHIVなど)をお持ちの方、また施術前の血液検査で数値がNKT細胞標的治療受診の規定値を満たしていない方などは治療を受けることができません。 詳細は施術前の無料カウンセリングにてご説明させていただきますが、最終的には医師による総合的な判断のもと、可否が決定します。




副作用はありますか?


NKT細胞標的治療は、患者さんの自己免疫を利用し、自然由来成分を合成するため、副作用は少ないことが特徴です。 現段階で確認されている副作用は、投与後に軽い倦怠感や発熱が見られる程度で、その症状もすぐに治ることが確認されています。




保険適応はできますか?


申し訳ありませんが、NKT細胞標的治療は保険外診療となっております。




がん以外にも効果がありますか?


体内の免疫力が活性化するので、QOLの向上や感染症予防などのサポートとしても有効です。
