On the Mend

On the Mend

This is a post I started back in August, saved, and forgot to post. I was also, at times, on some killer narcotics and valium to help with the pain and discomfort. Hahaha. “Alright, so I have not blogged in a while. So, update. I had a discectomy just close to two weeks ago. The healing process was difficult. I am still restricted on what I should and should not do. I am sticking very close with these restrictions and…

Why Nursing?

Why Nursing?

One of my friends/coworkers asked me the other day – “Why did you go into nursing?” “Why Nursing?” Oh gosh, what a question.

Black Tea Hair Wash

Black Tea Hair Wash

Once a week, I do a black tea hair wash/soak. I first started this because I noticed I was shedding so much hair!! After researching, I found a natural solution could be doing a tea soak.

Concerning cosmetic benefits, it helps bring a…

If I had a dandelion, I would make a wish.

If I had a dandelion, I would make a wish.

You know what I wish? Well, they may be simple, silly wishes but I have decided I have these few wishes that have been stewing in my brain for a few months. 1. I wish I was better at getting out of bed and ready in the morning. I sleep like the dead, so getting up in the morning is a terrible chore. I really want to be that person who is up at dawn and ready for the day…
