“We only have a certain amount of energy for each day. If we use it for the wrong purpose, if we focus on the negative or dwell on whoever hurt us, then we’re not going to have the energy we need for the right purposes.” – Victoria Osteen This is a great quote for me …

Disclosure: always consult your doctor about your health, and before you take supplements. This is just what I do and what works for me. With the Covid-19 pandemic, and everyone being indoors, we need to very carefully, get outside, and get some vitamin D from the sun. Vitamin D wards off depression, and makes us …

Taking care of others, v.s. taking care of ourselves.

“Helping someone else is the fastest way out of worry”. I can see how this is true, because it distracts our mind from our worries, and we forget about what we were worrying about. You can worry about yourself, while helping others. That is one reason why I like my job as a caregiver. Helping …

This isn’t going to end anytime soon…

I’m going to be 38 in May. I’m not going anywhere for my birthday. I have asthma and I do not want this upper respiratory virus, that is so mysterious for scientists. There is no cure, no vaccine and no medication. You can’t rush science. We won’t have a vaccine for another 12-18 months. The …

“Flatten the Curve”, with “Social Distancing”.

What does flattening the curve mean? It means to slow the transmission of the virus. We can do that by “social distancing”, staying away from sick people so that we do not contract covid-19 and keep passing it on. You can be infected and not show signs at all or not yet. Stay 6 feet …

My thoughts on Covid-19 a.k.a. Corona virus, as a healthcare provider.

This is just my opinion and anything I write does not replace the advice of a medical professional. So I have worked in assisted livings for more than a decade and have seen a lot. I work with the elderly, hospice, and have taken care of a young paraplegic. What do I think about this …

It’s that time of the month again, a week before your period. You’re tired, moody, and are craving all sorts of junk food. You’re suffering. How can you find relief? What happens during P.M.S.?

Trigger warning. This may be disturbing to certain people. Sensitive topic discussed.     I received an email from my kids school district, that 5 kids in the school district ended this life, mostly because of bullying, and as young as a 7th grader. I keep hearing stories like this. My neighbor told me her …
