    Treatment with the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) may lower risk for developing diabetes among lupus patients, according to a study published in Rheumatology that was conducted in Taiwan. In the population-based study of over 8,000 lupus patients,  those who had taken a cumulative dose of the antimalarial of at least 129 grams (200 mg per day for 1.8 years) had a 74% lower risk of diabetes. read more

    The lowly microbiome appears to be capturing an ever-increasing audience in the news these days. This explosion of new knowledge about our microscopic symbionts and how they contribute to who we are prompted me to write The Symbiont Factor. It has been exciting to see the continued flow of news stories that support and contribute to the concepts I wrote about in my book. This article is about one of those concepts and recent news that supports it. There are many aspects to how the microbiome is crucial to human function, with one of the most significant involving the immune system. Our human…

I decided to start a blog primarily for my own amusement as I do not dare to presume that anyone will find or want to read this as I know everyone is very busy. I mention in my profile that I have some chronic illness that can make craft and art a little tricky at times (though I am luckier than most that I can give a good go at most things most of the time) and thought it might be nice to share my experience with arts and crafts and hopefully swap tips with others. Despite the illness thing I aim to make this…

    I started my nail collection when I first got sick and had to move back home. I was housebound for 90 per cent of the time and I didn’t have the strength to do anything with my hair and my skin was to sensitive for makeup so I focused on my nails cheering myself up with colours and textures and its something you can take your time over and do in bed. Also the one plus point about not being able to do anything is that there is nothing you can break a nail on. I think it’s testament to how long I’ve been sick to how many polishes I have but sick or not there’s many a…

  • Logo Lanyards for Professionals

    Jean Brown

    Lanyards are popular nowadays, especially among the youth. Students use them as ID straps or mobile phone straps, and lanyards are sometimes given away as souvenirs, but did you know that even professionals can make use of lanyards? Logo lanyards can be used as ID straps in the workplace. With the appropriate width, style and design, they can look professional and they need not look “loud”. Lanyards can also be used in conferences or conventions. Not only do they serve as identification—they become part of the ‘credentials’ along with the certificate of participation and can also…
  • How Challenge Coins are Made

    Challenge coins come in a variety of shapes, sizes, finishes and designs which could overwhelm anyone looking to get coins produced. But in order to figure out what custom options one should opt for, it would be best to first understand how challenge coins are made. The first step is the designing stage. At this point, design ideas from the customer would be developed and refined. The artwork can furnished by the customer himself or it can be done by artists from the manufacturer. The layout can be in any format. Even pencil sketches can be turned into a usable design for a coin. However,…

For the most part, there are things that you can do to gain leverage online, but you will need to work within the parameters of what SEO Companies are dealing with, and not the conjecture that many bloggers are dealing with.

  • How Keynote Speakers Live their Lives

    Geraldine Jensen
    29 Dec 2014 | 3:23 am
    The daily routine of a keynote speaker includes appointments with clients, researching for materials to use in the next event, reviewing the itinerary for the week and others. This is the normal schedule of a full time keynote speaker. The part-time keynote speaker has another day job. The part time speaker accepts appointments with clients during his extra time – most of the time during weekends. Part-time speakers carry out their research whenever they can, and they are hired only during their free time. Their day job will keep them secure financially in case there are no clients. Here…
  • PCB Designing Role in Its Fabrication

    Frank Hosier
    25 Dec 2014 | 10:47 pm
    PCB fabrication may seem simple, but it isn’t always the case. One thing that should not be overlooked is the accuracy in the manufacturing process, which is a major role of the designing process of PCB’s. The design should be exactly pictured and made according to the client’s specifications. These board specifications include the number of layers, the type of materials, the dimensions, and the number and circumference of holes. These are all put in a design, and a single mistake will make a nonfunctional or rejected PCB. Designing and prototyping of the schematics are the initial…

I thought it would be an easy in and out, as I wasn't going to wait for them to be filled. Because I use my trusty pillfolds, I knew I had more than a week's worth of all three prescriptions left, so I had plenty of time to pick up the filled prescriptions later in the week.

Upon reading Lenin's words, I immediately thought of the times since I've been diagnosed with lupus, where in just a short period of time, I've felt like I've aged a lifetime. Not just physically, but mentally, too. Weeks where I've come to a whole new…

      As one would expect, January seems the month of reflection and action for many of us. Unfortunately, for me, I tend to spend WAY too much time in the reflection stage.   The few posts I put up last year showed me the kind of year I lived. Things really became clear when it was time to put together the holiday/new year greetings. I was saddened and disappointed in myself as I realized I spent very little of my year creating lasting personal memories. Instead, I white-knuckled my days getting from one to the next, focusing on work practically every moment of the day in a survival…

    We hear a lot lately about  falls prevention among the elderly. Did you know, however, that falling risks do not actually increase just because you hit 65 and older? For those of you in my shoes, so to speak, and are noticing changes in balance already in your fifties, prevention of injury needs to begin long before our bones become brittle. If you are living with more than one chronic condition and are on one or more medications, your fall risk increases no matter what your age. On top of that, our bodies go through a lot of changes in our middle age – both men and women. After years of…

    I fully accept that blogging isn’t easy for me. I spend much more time away from the computer these days, as my Twitter and Facebook activity (or more precisely, inactivity) can illustrate. I do plan on returning, however, and writing about the experiences I will be having as the health education workshops, Tai Chi & Qigong classes and community-based projects get going. The posts will reflect my work in community-based wellness programs. I learn so much from those experiences where I get to face challenges side-by-side with others and those lessons are well worth sharing. I am ending…

    In my defense, I have thought about posting here…but have been a little distracted:       You know how the instructions to put things like furniture together are sometimes shown in, what is referred to as, an “exploded view”? Bits and pieces of the final product appearing to fly apart from some sort of big bang in the center? That has been my last two months. Don’t get me wrong – it has been a lot of fun to have my daughters back in the home, at least in stuff if not their personal presence, and my nest is alive again. I admit to have made things worse by…

    The subject of visibility is stuck in my brain these days. Over the past years, I’ve watched the emerging patient advocacy movement grow and individuals living with health challenges were finding empowerment in sharing the voice of their experiences and needs. The “Patient as consumer” or “Be your own best advocate” jargon is heard much more regularly than before. New health care access no longer pushes patients to live in the shadows as much as we used to feel necessary. One of the reasons I didn’t have insurance for 16 years was because of my preexisting condition, leaving me a…

    The Life of a 20-Something With Lupus

  • Ringing in the new year...with Scleritis!

    8 Jan 2015 | 4:40 am
    So I did have an amazing new year. I pretty much rested on New Year's Day and prepared to go to work the following day. When I woke up, I felt a dull ache in my left eye. I thought perhaps I had slept with my watch on my eye and it was aching. So, as usual, I headed into the washroom to wash my hands and then to brush my teeth. Trust that I was shocked (and scared!) by what I saw in the mirror:What the hell?? What happened to my eye between me going to bed and me waking up in the morning!? There was a bit of water/tears, but no excessive "gunk" in my eye, so I don't think it's pink…

    It's a good thing to talk. Talk about stuff.I go back and forth when it comes to the above statement. Sometimes...I don't want to talk about stuff, because I know, mid story, it'll make my cry. At the same time, if I don't, the tears that need to be "cried" simply remain inside. That's not good either.This weekend was one of catching up with friends-good ones.On Friday evening, it was date night with my close friend and confidant, Mikey. Mikey and I have known each other and immediately connected as friends soon after we met each other back at our first job in a ritzy Italian grocery store.

I can smile, I can laugh, and I can make believe. Other times, when I'm REALLY upset about something, my facial expressions as well as my overall attitude changes.I was at work the other day and was so upset. I'm so upset that I was lied to, hurt...deliberately, and that I'm so upset that I'm so upset.Nobody is perfect. But, I do feel that some of these relationships that I shed so many tears about, and these…
