Overcoming Rape

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I don’t often get very personal on my blog, because I value my privacy, and I blog because I want to help others, bring awareness to issues, and educate people in any way I can.

Today I’m a different person than I was 6 years…

How to ACTUALLY Get Rid of Toenail Fungus!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yeah. I know. EWWWW. I mean, really – EWWWWW. Right? But, it does happen.

Some folks are more susceptible to nail fungus because of diabetes and other immunosuppressing disorders. There are a plethora of videos on YouTube suggesting remedies, some of which may work, and some…

Response from Service Ontario re: Epipens and a CALL TO ACTION!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin As many of you are already aware, there has been a long-term shortage of Epipens because of the manufacturing shortfall at King, which is a subsidiary of Pfizer. Nobody has answered the question of how such a long-term shortage has come about, and nobody knows when they will be readily available again to Canadians.

Fibromyalgia and You – Why Doctors Don’t Take New Pains Seriously

Fibromyalgia and You – Why Doctors Don’t Take New Pains Seriously

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Fibromyalgia is poorly understood by the doctors, much less the average layperson.

Why I Hate Getting a New Phone – a Laugh for Your Day!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I’ve had a great, indestructible Ulefone Armor2 phone for about a year now. In the last few months, while I was talking to someone on the phone, it does all kinds of fun things, such as put the call on hold, mute, dial into my voicemail, dial other people in my address book, and hang up on the caller. While initially entertaining, it became a useless indestructible phone. Since I had purchased the phone on…

Fibromyalgia: Pain Management, Medications, and their Effectiveness

Follow my blog with Bloglovin If you have Fibromyalgia, you’ve probably tried a lot of different treatments and medications that are supposed to help, and you’ve probably found that they either didn’t work or stopped working over a period of time. The truth of the matter is that most medications used for Fibromyalgia don’t work for some people at all, and for others, your brain gets ‘used to’ the medication, and makes adjustments in its pain receptors and serotonin center….
