Serotonin- Maybe A Horror Hormone, Not a Happy Hormone
Wednesday, May 18, 2016      6 comments

I blogged this before, from pharmacist Ben Fuchs' Critical Health News daily blog. I think it's so interesting (and misunderstood) that I'm blogging about it again. "If you watch the cartoonish commercials on TV about depression and anti-... Read more
Cracked Myself Up w/Yesterday's Blog
Tuesday, May 17, 2016      8 comments

After writing yesterday about my lifelong avoidance of drugs, alcohol, and meds, I had to laugh. It's too bad I didn't think the same way about the two additional poisons that have taken me forever to conquer - sugar and caffeine. Not that I'v... Read more
FEELING SO THANKFUL FOR PAIN RELIEF
Monday, May 16, 2016      11 comments

I am so happy to feel significantly less pain today (first time in three months). And glad that these meds are low dosage and non-addictive. As I've said many times, I am not a pill taker, so it gives me heebie-geebies when I have to put stuff... Read more

Sugar Coated (documentary on Netflix)
Saturday, May 14, 2016      10 comments

Yet another film about that demon poison - sugar. It does contain some interesting new info, as well as reminders about the stuff we already know. Yikes! I've been doing much better with sugar intake, but still have a way to go. As a p... Read more
Headed Back to Doc's This Morning
Friday, May 13, 2016      14 comments

Ordinarily not a pill taker, I need some help with this constant and intense pain from shingles. Rash has been long gone, but nerve pain is beyond belief in three places with some numbness and vibration. Some days it's unbearable. BUT, co... Read more
Thinking of Starting a SP Shingles Healing Team
Wednesday, May 11, 2016      7 comments

But maybe I'll wind up be a team of one. (smiling) I'm currently trying to form a shingles support group, and that will take some time as I don't think there are that many people out there. BTW, it is no longer an "over 60" malady. I've d... Read more
Prescription Thugs (documentary on Netflix)
Tuesday, May 10, 2016      13 comments

This is an interesting film about how we as a nation are held hostage by big pharma. We have 5 percent of the world's population, but use 75 percent of its prescription drugs. In the past decade, big pharma has made $711 BILLION. Yes, the med... Read more
Overweight mothers give birth to fat babies
Monday, May 09, 2016      9 comments

In the news today was this study out of Britain of the correlate between overweight mothers giving birth to fat babies - some of them (the babies) had as much fat around their abdomen as some adults in their 50's. The scientists noted tha... Read more
Motherhood - Another Perspective
Sunday, May 08, 2016      11 comments

Sure, I've experienced all the joy of motherhood that society proclaims at one time or another. But honestly? I never thought it was all that it was cracked up to be and required endless sacrifice, energy, love and commitment. Oftentimes,... Read more

For those who've enjoyed and benefited from the Beck Diet Solution, you know that her cognitive therapy tips are helpful. They send out a newsletter, and there's an opening statement in the new one that was emailed the other day. Debby (I ... Read more
"LOSE WEIGHT FAST, EAT MORE FAT" (ebook)
Saturday, April 30, 2016      7 comments

I just can't wrap my mind around this short ebook I got free for my Kindle Fire. Eat as much bacon as you like? I've heard of this before, but really not confident that this is heart healthy. We are still challenged by a lengthy drought, ... Read more
Night Eating, Food Tracking, Finished Xmas Shopping, Harry's Birthday
Friday, April 29, 2016      6 comments

I have birthday balloons up to celebrate Harry's 12th birthday and in joyful remembrance of his brother Wills. 12 years of happiness with my furry baby. I noticed that food tracking is much easier when I don't eat as much as I was eating. ... Read more
Sugar in the News Again
Thursday, April 28, 2016      11 comments

It has taken me most of my life to harness sugar; in fact, I often crowned myself sugar queen of the universe. Not very complimentary, but true. However, over the past year or so, I really got serious about eliminating added sugar. Not per... Read more
Purple Hair, Fitbit Malady, Prince Harry's (my cat) birthday, Camel Ride
Wednesday, April 27, 2016      13 comments

Since I haven't been blogging regularly, and have no idea how long my desire to do so will last (smiling), I thought I'd kick out as many topics as possible. About a week ago, my new FB died and I thought it was just a battery replacement... Read more
