You Are Not Your Body, But Don’t Victimize It

You Are Not Your Body, But Don’t Victimize It

I woke up this morning with this statement, “You are not your body, but don’t victimize it,” on my mind, so I decided to put my thoughts on the blog before I forget what was on my mind.  Some people say forgetfulness has something to do with aging, but I’m not convinced.  Yet. A friend(…)

Education Is A Holy Mess, But Still The Best Way To Evolve

Education Is A Holy Mess, But Still The Best Way To Evolve

  This past weekend I attended a Pri-Med symposium on medical updates.  The entire weekend was a stimulating one, except once I was struggling to stay awake the sleep disorder update, but I muscled-up and survived. The Harvard/UM folks used the best in the field to present the battery of material.  I felt very fortunate to be(…)

Sweet Pain!

Sweet Pain!

In 1996, a Pakistani artist by the name of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan released a song called Sweet Pain (from the album Night Song).  I find it sort of a meditative song I’ve listen to for year, but basically on feelings (I don’t understand one blessed word in that joint!).  But if you are up to experience something new,(…)

A CRITICAL RUNNING NURSE REPORT: Something to Run For.

  A Running Nurse Special Report: Okay people, here it is.  We have been watching this disturbing trend for a while now.  Over the past three decades or more, this trend has been growing along with our robust waistlines. Many of us hate statistics.  Every time we hear dreaded ones, it makes the hair in(…)

This Holiday Season, Why Not Cast Your Ballot For Your Health?

This Holiday Season, Why Not Cast Your Ballot For Your Health?

This post-election day I find myself contemplating the number of people who went out to cast their vote to elect the president of the United States.  The vote was decided, and although Florida is still having a senior moment in counting the votes, America has solidly elected a president. I couldn’t help but imagine a(…)
