Write Along with Me

I had a health scare last week that slapped me, once again, into awareness that I’m alone. I no longer have a husband; I no longer am married. After 56 years, I no longer have someone at home who’s there for me the minute something goes wrong.

There have been many challenges as I’ve assumed this role of widowhood, but they’ve been doable. Mostly. I’ve not finished yet with collecting tax documents, and that’s stretching my sanity; I much prefer working with words than numbers.

This health scare, though, was not doable, alone. The doctor’s office called that I needed to have a repeat mammogram. In my 77 years, I’ve never had to have a repeat. You can imagine where my mind went—all the way from the repeat test itself to the grave.

I had to have an immediate talk with myself. I could not deal with wild thoughts alone…

Ishan Acharya

A doctor specializing in gynecology is not only known for providing the right treatment and care for women through their phase of pregnancy but also for assessing and examining the female reproductive system or any parts in the female anatomy related to the same in cases other than pregnancy as well.

Remedies for muscle fever

Katherine's Blog

Muscle fever is felt by the body in the form of a strong pain and a high tonus in the muscle you have trained. Whether it’s caused by intense workout or due to the effort made during the day, muscle fever occurs only 24 hours after the effort.

There are three types of muscle in our body: the muscles of the heart, the smooth muscles (from the blood vessels) and the skeletal or striated muscles attached to the bones. Muscle fever affects only skeletal muscles.

                                                     Ways to fight muscular fever

1. Vitamin C – acts as an anti-inflammatory on the areas of the body that have been subjected to the effort;

(Health) What are the benefits of intermittent fasting?


In general intermittent fasting refers to an eating cycle that includes periods of fasting for a minimal of 12-36 hours (although there’s significant variation). Many intermittent fasting advocates suggest that intermittent fasting report improved weight management.

Scientist can’t easily conduct human-research therefore, most of the research were done in animals, and some of the benefits could also be applicable to us, human.

Research links intermittent fasting benefits include

  1. Weight loss
  2. Lower the risk of type 2 diabetes
  3. Improved heart health
  4. Improved brain health
  5. Reduced cancer risk

1. Weight Loss

Might be due to the lowering of insulin levels.

Our body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose, which our cells use for energy or convert into fats and store for later use. And insulin is a hormone that allows cells to take in glucose.

During a fasting period, our insulin levels drop which causes cells to release their glucose stores as energy.

Endocrine Disruptors


Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can affect normal hormone functions in the body. These are compounds that have a chemical structure that the body mistakenly recognizes as a naturally occurring hormone. They can interfere with normal body chemistry in several ways. These compounds can block the action of a hormone, or have a similar effect as the hormone. They may also alter the production of hormones or the chemical message sent by a hormone.

They can be found in household items, consumer goods, foods and the environment.

Compounds that act as endocrine disruptors include:

  • DDT – a pesticide
  • Phthalates- used to make plastics more flexible, found in food containers, toys and personal care products
  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls or PCBs- used in many consumer items. These are now banned but still persist in the environment.
  • Phenol compounds- bisphenol A (BPA) found in food containers, alkylphenol found in laundry detergents, and triclosan found…

Another Chemo Treatment

Stick With Jesus

chemotherapy     Another chemo infusion is in the book now. Yesterday was the second infusion of this round.  I do three consecutive weeks and then I get a week off. Week 2 is also the “short week”- I only get one of the two regular chemo drugs.  

We meet with the oncologist first, to go over blood work and vitals, talk and get a physical exam. Then, if it all looks well, I get the “green light” for chemo that day. (Needless to say, “all looked well”!) She continues to be shocked at how good the thyroid looks and feels. If you remember, that’s where this all started and that’s what was supposed to give me 4-6 months to live….even before they found the other two cancers. It, and the nodes around it, are still necrotic- dead…but the radiation I received early on that focused on the thyroid, as well as the ongoing chemo, seem to be having a positive impact on that area, which I think…
