I have been living with dementia for the past couple of years. With a husband who passed away long ago and no children, it can sometimes be lonely, but I have been able to make do just fine until recently. I now struggle with some things that I had no trouble with just a couple of years ago. I have heard of and seen many situations of people refusing help until the point that things grow worse, so I decided to get help now, rather than later. I found myself contacting a business that offers senior home care in Queens and explaining my plight to them.
I explained that I am an easy going person, and I would love to have someone come over to help me who is easy going, too. I simply do not get a long with people who are bossy. I also explained that I grew tired very early in the day, and I was forgetting to take my prescription meds or how to do things like take care of my house or even make myself a decent meal.

My sister and I are hair stylists. We do it for a living. Between wages and tips, we don’t do too bad. However, just like a dentist can’t really work on his own teeth, we can’t work on our own hair. We like hair weaves and extensions because of what we inherited from mom. That is, thinning hair. My sister and I are twins and are in our early 40s. We fix mom’s hair every week, and we do each other’s hair using my natural hair extensions we get online. Since we both share the same exact hair color, we can just buy one type of hair bundle color that we use between us. Mom’s hair is lighter now, so we buy different hair for her weaves and extensions.
It is really nice to have my sister as my hair stylist. She knows exactly what I want because we pretty much have the same tastes. You know how it is. Continue reading My Sister and I Fix Our Thinning Hair with Virgin Hair Bundle Deals We Found Online
Illnesses are common in children, and although there are many vaccines to prevent a lot of common childhood diseases, there are still no surefire ways to prevent some allergic reactions. There has been a 20% increase in the number of food allergies seen in children since 1997 and over 9,500 children are hospitalized each year because of it. Doctors of pediatric medicine are always looking for new and improved ways to treat this sometimes deadly occurrance.
Food allergies can cause anything from mild irritation of the skin and/or digestive tract to full blown anaphylaxis. Food allergies can strike without warning and can be fatal even after just one incidence of the child consuming the food that causes the particular reaction. Along with medications used to treat allergies after they are experienced, prevention and avoidance are key. Although not all food allergies can be determined and avoided, as with first time severe reactions, those that are known can be avoided to lessen and eliminate the reaction and subsequent ill effects.
Any food can cause an allergic reaction, but there are some foods in which food allergies are more common. Nuts, fish, shellfish, milk and eggs are among the foods that are most commonly associated with food allergies in children. Continue reading More Pediatric Patients Experiencing Food Allergies
I am interested in becoming a Pediatrician and after I graduate (hopefully in 2013) from UNC Chapel Hill I intend to apply for the medical school here and at Wake Forest. Of course it is going to be very difficult to get in and to become a pediatrician. Right now I am both attending school and trying to amass some savings. I want to find good places on the internet to do research on the latest topics in Pediatrics and the general advances in the state of the science. It is getting closer to the time when I will need to devote myself full time to the process. Next semester I am taking a huge course load with lots of Chemistry and Biology classes.
