For those of you you may have heard of Cervical Dysplasia or Cervical Cancer or even only the HPV vaccine, here is my story.
I was 19 when I had my daughter. After her birth, I went to the doctor for a Pap smear. It must have been late in the summer of 1993.
It can take 2-4 weeks to get the results of a Pap smear and usually doctors don't call you back unless the smear shows something.
So I was quite shocked when my doctor called me after a few weeks about my smear. I became quite worried when she insisted on seeing me right away. My doctor was the doctor associated... Read More
Why is the media so fixated on OCD being about hoarding, when hoarding is the opposite of everything thatOCD stands for? People with OCD tend to be organized, neat freaks and clean. Hoarders on the other hand are disorganized, messy and a general health and safety hazard. They could not be further from the definition of obsessive compulsive disorder if they tried.Do hoarders even have the obsessions and compulsions that are so integral to OCD, or is their hoarding mindless? Most hoarders will tell you that they don't even know how their hoarding got so out of hand. Is that the meticulous attitude... Read More
A couple of years ago, I suffered from Plantar Fasciitis, a well known condition of heel pain. This type of injury generally occurs overtime when the foot part of the body sustains an overload of physical activity without properly being stretched regularly.
During my rehabilitation through intense stretching and hydro therapy, I learned the injury stemmed from my hamstrings being tight from the hips area down to the balls of my feet, making every foot movement extremely painful. Between sitting down all day at work, and dissmissing stretching for year during my training, something was... Read More

The law was enacted as part of San Francisco's "Healthy Meal Incentive Ordinance" and clearly targets fast food companys, such as McDonalds, from incentivizing the sale of "unhealthy" food by including a toy with the meal.
The McDonalds' company appears to have outsmarted lawmakers and will however continue to sell Happy Meals. Employees of San Francisco based McDonalds' stores are reported to be saying that the company will do this and make more money as a result, says the sfweekly.com.
To skirt the law's requirements, McDonald's will be selling its Happy Meals with no toys... Read More
Believe it or not, I used to be where you are. A size 16. I was huge! And I tried every weight loss diet out there to no avail. I wish I knew then what I know now about the physical transitions of life. Losing weight was never easy for me because I had a slow moving metabolism!In all honesty, losing weight is not easy! I don't care what the so-called “experts” tell you. BUT the good news is, there are keys that “experts” won't tell you that will help you become successful at weight loss.

The notion that seeing things anew was always more of a metaphor than a fact of life, or so I thought; but being hopelessly myopic had been at best a restriction that, over time, was something I had become accustomed to. Little did I know how much it had effected my perceptions about so many things.
The first thing I would reach for in the morning were my glasses, usually very expensive and so thick that I could never hope to get frames that were fashionable. Everything was so out of focus that when my vision worsened I had no clue what was happening until I started noticing... Read More
