Prime Healthcare’s Humanitarian Aid to India
In May 2021, a second surge of the COVD-19 pandemic gripped the Indian sub-continent, and a staggering 21 million people were tested positive for the virus. The new ‘delta variant’ of the SARS –CoV-2 virus, 30% more infectious than its 2019 predecessor, spread like wildfire. The death toll quickly soared past 50000+ leading to a humanitarian crisis threatening to take a turn for the worse.
Five things I learnt from my Dad's suicide

What “End of life care” really means
Death. We all get there. We all see that magical “door” eventually. Everyone crosses that glorious bridge one day, looking back at their lives, maybe having regrets, secrets or feeling nothing at all. Maybe just being happy that it is finally over or not wanting to leave yet.
I love what I do
I love my work because I am the creator of my everyday being, and the work that I do. Everything I do in my life daily mostly is connected with helping one another to coexist in this world to heal, and to have a better understanding of life, happiness and joy.
I spend my days as a visionary author and quantum coach. The author part is obvious ~ I write (and love doing it). But what the heck is a quantum coach?
The Cancer Phones
I pick up the call. On the other end, someone is crying too hard to get the words out. I say, “This is the Cancer Information Service. How can I help you today?”
This is my many and endless days and months I spent in and out of the hospital from having complications from weight loss surgery. There was times I didn’t think I was going to come home from the hospital and a few times I shouldn’t have. I weighed 277 when I went into have the surgery and in 9 month I was 95 pounds it was a roller coaster for me. Having two kids at home under 18 and not knowing from one day to the next was hard. My son ask “mom are you gonna die on me” and that broke my heart. I had my surgery on March 15, 2015 everything went well two days later I went home. Then on Easter Sunday 2015 I got sick I thought it was because I was with friends at a cookout and could eat what they was having and it was hot out. Went home ended up going to the emergency room around 4 in the morning I was dehydrated and in major pain. I was there a few hours they sent me home, and I went back on Wednesday morning still sick throwing up so by this time I am thinking I am sticking from helping my friend because her five kids had been with with a stomach virus. The emergency room doctors wouldn’t call the surgeon and talk to him about me being there and this was just three weeks after surgery. When I went home I called his office and went in on that Friday to see him and he admitted me to the hospital I spent a week he did a scope and stretched my stomach because it was closing up. By May I was having my first revision of this surgery. At this time I had been in and out the hospital more than I was at home. In July he removed my gallbladder and by September I was having the second revision of the surgery. Nothing seem to be helping. At this point I would be home maybe 24 hours after being released from the hospital before being admitted again. I spent the entire month of November in the hospital having my third revision of the surgery and by this time I had about 21 scopes done. I was in there for Christmas and New Years and went home 12 hours later I was back and had to have a feeding tube placed because by this time I only weighed 95 pounds and still couldn’t eat or drink anything. Still spending countless days and nights in the hospital feeling like there was no hope insight I felt hopeless. Finally in August of 2016 I had my fourth revision a two and a half hour surgery took five and a half hours my left lung collapsed 30 minutes into surgery they had to place a chest tube before finishing surgery the worst pain ever. I finally got the feeding tube taken out two weeks after I went home and I started gaining some weight back. The worst surgery of all was the one that helped me the most. There was many time I should have never came home from the hospital but did. It took me two years to gain weight back to be a normal healthy weight. And for the last two years I have maintained a weight of 150. I still have issues but nothing like on the beginning. If you would have ask me back then if I regret having it done I would have said yes, but now I look at it that I was blessed and I am still here for a reason and I don’t question that reason. I have many people ask me many questions about the surgery and if they have had it and have problems they really ask me questions. My advice to anyone when it comes to weight loss surgery is do your research and think long and hard about it before making your decision. Make sure you also have plenty of people to support you and stand with you regardless your decision because only you can make that decision. Many will say it’s the easy way out but what they don’t know it’s really not because this surgery changes your life forever regardless whether it’s good or bad it changes your life and you.
In the Beginning
I first began writing little bloggy stuff on Facebook, back in 2012, after retiring from my Customer Service job at Publix Supermarket on Fort Myers Beach, Florida. I wrote mostly of what I write about today, me and my childhood. Memories of people that romp around in my mind, even after all these years. In 2014, I made a peregrination, that ended in my home town as a committee member of my 50th class reunion.
Well, Mother Nature
Today is another chance to care for myself. The sky gave me a refresher. A turning to myself and others. My neck, my hip, both stiff from overuse and age. Head feeling the Klonopin.
No Sleep For The Wicked
Introduction The prevalence of insomnia in the general population ranges between 8-40%, depending on the definition used. While 20-30% of the general population has poor sleep (i.e., insomnia symptoms of difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, early morning awakening, or non-restorative sleep at any given time), another 8-10% of the population suffers from chronic insomnia. Also, about 4% of the population use sleeping pills in a regular basis. However, the connection of insomnia with significant medical morbidity has not been examined until very recently. This has led to view insomnia and its associated mental and physical health complaints as a minor problem from a public health perspective.
I couldn't be Rapunzel
I finally got a haircut after going through three lockdowns. I got my haircut only once in that time, I believe, at the hands of my wonderful girlfriend. Today, I shocked and surprised her when my long flowing, tangly locks were shawn off.
