#MirenaFail Seen Round the Internet

MirenaFailAccidents happen. As luck would have it, this accident happened resulting from an IUD slip. The social media viral post of a newborn baby clutching the mother’s IUD was tagged #MirenaFail. Yes, sometimes the initial incorrect placement or the migration of the IUD can result in a pregnancy.  Women who opt for an IUD are choosing a reversible form of birth control. In no way does this excuse the failure of an IUD. It just explains the surprise of giving birth when a woman expects that her IUD is working as it should. Everything that happens there after is the reason why said pic goes viral.

Beware #GrayDeath

GrayDeathIt sounds scary because it is, this ‘Gray Death’ stuff. It’s a drug cocktail made of heroin, fentanyl, various fentanyl-class substances and no guarantees to live. Most of the elements in this combo are imported from Mexico or China and concocted here in the US. The street drug got its name from the way it looks once all of the ingredients are combined: cement powder. If you’re looking to have a good time, this combination of heroin, painkillers, large animal tranquilizers, and synthetic opioids may not be what you had in mind. Find a new way to tickle your ‘feel good’ to escape your reality. Easier said than done, right? I love my caffeine, lottery, and overthinking err-thing. Supposedly your body has a physiological reaction when you don’t give-in to your cravings. Be honest with yourself and acknowledge your addictions.

#IceBucketChallenge Scores Another #ALS Advancement

ALDRemember the Ice Bucket Challenge a few years ago that was all the rage? Well, the cause behind the challenge was to raise awareness and funding for a condition known as ALS. ALS is a neurological condition that causes people to lose control of their muscles and ultimately total loss of movement. The challenge resulted in a few marvelous changes for the advancement of ALS, such as the breakthrough discovery for the  gene associated with ALS. The more than $100 million raised in 30-days was not only an immediate phenomenon but the attention and fundraising has led to another advancement in treatment. For the first time in 22-years, ALS has a new drug that is shown to slow the decline of physical function by 33%. Who knew freezing water cold light a fire under the condition that’s been in a holding pattern for over 20-years? Kudos to compelling viral campaign!

When #You Can’t Scream in #Dreams

DreamsDreams. Have you ever had a dream where you cannot scream? What I lack in everyday communication savvy comes-out to play in my dreams. Often times, something that’s plagued me for an exorbitant amount of time will manifest itself with guidance and clarity in my dreams. I wonder if it’s because I can’t interrupt my subconscious? I love consulting a Dream Dictionary to try and figure-out what my brain is trying to tell me about my waking experiences.  Get to know your emotions from the inside out. When your dreams impact you in ways that have you wondering ‘what could that mean’…it’s time you invested some of it to figure it out. Screaming, choking, running, falling are all hints that you need to take some notion of your emotions pertaining to undetermined issues. So yes, this wasn’t going to be a specific guideline as to what’s causing you to be unheard in your dreams but you need to figure-out what is making you feel like a wallflower in your life and pull-out the megaphone to get the message across.

#Delight in the #Sun for #VitaminD

sunIn our technological world, none of us see nearly the same amount of sun as our ancestors. Rumor has it, nearly 1 billion people throughout the world have a vitamin D deficiency worldwide caused by a lack of sun exposure. Researchers hypothesize that this lack of sunlight is due to sunblock more so than the technological age. The real problem here is that this lack of sunlight impacts our bone strength. The sunlight provides vitamin D to us which is essential for our bodies to be able to metabolize calcium from food. When we don’t have enough vitamin D in our bodies, our need for calcium is net by the calcium in our phones, leading to bone weakness. At any cost, our body tries to maintain normalcy in our blood and that goes for calcium. By far, calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is vitally important to maintain balance in everything we eat, do, and live. The moral of the story: celebrate life in the sun more and drop the level of SPF when you do meet and greet with the fiery ball in the sky.

1 in 4 Slim #Faces Are #LeftHanded

lefthandedDon’t let a face fool you. A study shows that 25% of people with slimmer faces are left-handed. These people with slim faces are also referred to as having an overbite. About 20% of adolescents are said to have this unique shape to their face. Yes, the population is dominated with right-handed people. I’m one of them. Who knew that way back in the day, people who had a slender-jaw and body frame to match were marked as more susceptible for TB? Whether you’re considered an endomorph, a southpaw, or the ferociously talented ambidextrous creature — keep your chin up. Left-handed people are better at 3D thinking and perception, they’re better at multi-tasking, and left-handed college graduates go on to become 26% richer than their right-handed alumni.

#Trump Wants #Healthcare to Cover #PreExistingConditions

TrumpPreExistingConditionsHell may have frozen over. The first 100-days in office may have helped President Trump  grow a heart. As proof of this, he’s announced his support of a healthcare bill to protect people with pre-existing conditions. President Obama curried favor with the nation for his ‘mama bear’ instincts to cover those suffering with health challenges that affect  nearly 130 million Americans. Trump professes that his healthcare will be every bit as good as Obamacare on pre-existing conditions. Hopefully that statement will lower the volume on the Trump-tagonists. For the naysayers in the house who fear their prices will skyrocket, deep breaths. The clause states that rates will not rise as long as the person does not allow their overage to lapse. In other words, if you have a pre-existing condition, don’t hurt yourself by throwing a tantrum and dropping your health insurance under President Trump. Don’t be that kid.
