What Is The Worst Thing We Do To Self?

what-is-the-worst-thing-we-do-to-self

I warn you before I start....this is me coming from a place of conflict! I have been e-mailing for several years, with a lady I met on a chat board, several years ago. She was never a warm bubbly person, but needy, and we did have things in common, and I continued the friendship until this time, but I think I see the finish line. Let me explode, and tell you why I think there is one ... Read More

Staying Active???

200211

Staying Active???? Yes...I know...staying active is certainly a relevant term! To some it means running 3 miles a day. To others it means chewing their food with great vigor! But...whatever it means to you personally, WE DO ALL NEED TO BE ACTIVE! If we can't stay active physically, we still can stay active mentally. We cannot afford to vegetate. When our health becomes compromised ... Read More

Many people start using "helper items" when in grade school.....all of a sudden the eyes need some help....you need glasses. Then, first thing you know, you end up loosing a tooth in the front, and you find you need a small plate or implant...something so you don't look like a toothless wonder. Then about high school you break a leg, and have to use crutches for awhile. Maybe you break ... Read More

First off........who is "aging"? Is it the people over 50? People over 70? It is neither of those....WE ARE ALL AGING! It has been a long time since I have met a person who is younger than they were yesterday! Oh yes.....some folks can be made to LOOK YOUNGER, but that has nothing to do with this topic. Somewhere around 60 years,(give or take a decade) we start to worry about aging ... Read More

POSITIVELY SO !!!!

positively-so

200211

When we are unwell it is sometimes very difficult to find the "good things" in our day, so, we stay focused on the pain, the inability, and the things which constantly bring us down. Finding "the positive" in any given day takes a lot of thought, incite, and just plain guts. However, that is what I am proposing for us, in this thread. Will it be easy every day? Certainly not! However ... Read More

Hi, it's been some time since I was last on here. But I've been using uvb and steroid ointments off and on for the last 12yrs. In August 2017, my derm gave these 2 methods one last try to see how they would work. The light therapy has made me feel super drained, so I was only doing it once a week. She said that the steroid creams appear to be thinning my skin and they're not as effective ... Read More

Last Tuesday I was diagnosed with strep. They put me on an aggressive dosage of amoxicillin to treat it. This Tuesday I woke up and noticed a red pimple like rash on my arms, and it wasn’t itchy. That evening an itch started to develop and now I almost can’t stand how horribly itchy my whole body is. The rash has gotten worse every day, and I’m covered from head to toe now. The doctor ...
