Welcome Back elaineR.N.

Welcome Back elaineR.N.

It may be kind of crusty to give my own welcome back party, but I wanted to give myself public positive feedback and kudos for finally writing again.  Don’t know what exactly pulled me away from my joy of writing about health, but I just didn’t have whatever it took to say what I wanted.  It began after I broke my wrist/arm, as typing hurt when I stayed at it too long.  Then, I didn’t want to think about health stuff beyond my own recovery.  Also, I was really exhausted and didn’t have energy beyond what the daily activities of life called for and  Blah blah blah.  So, that is that and now is now. 

To those that kept asking when I was going to post again, thanks for wanting to read my blog.  That alone is motivating.  So here we go!  Look for my first back to blogging health post about asking the right questions to ensure you understand rational for the instructions you are given post operatively.     

Along with writing, I am looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and reading posts from those who I hope will become new friends.  Early on in my blogging life, I would get up in the morning, make coffee and read away on BlogHer.com for about an hour to find out what was new, what was good about old, who was in love, who was tired of whiney kids and who had discovered a way to make hamburger taste like steak.   Missed you all and looking forward to joining you for coffee tomorrow.

10 Health Blogging Lessons I Learned in 2012

Reflection is something I don’t do often enough, though I should, because I believe it offers an opportunity to learn. In fact, I began thinking that the only time I do reflect is to laugh again at something humorous that happened or to anguish and obsess over an incident that occurred too long ago to do anything more, then feel bad about it. However, this being a new year, I thought I would share some of the health-related things I learned about blogging this year. To arrive at my conclusions, I did reflect back, and enjoyed the reminiscing. Here are my thoughts:   Read more >

Stay in Touch

I recently heard Neil Diamond’s song "Sweet Caroline" and was inspired to write about touch. Love that song and must have listened to it at least a thousand times since it first came out in 1969. (On a personal note, at least one of those times was during a make-out session behind my parent’s house.) The part that is most moving in the song is when Neil sings about hands touching hands. Touch between two consenting adults is so romantic. In fact, while I am writing this, I feel like playing the song and lighting a scented candle. But, let me pull out of the mood, as I am approaching this from a health perspective and not my own personal romance needs.   Read more >

FACT: All Women Experience Vaginal Discharge

While I realize that for some, there may be an EWWW factor to the topic of vaginal discharge, many women ask about this and, are at times, concerned about theirs. (And if it makes anyone feel better, when I told my daughter about my topic, she said "YIKES!") Hopefully, if you stick with me, you will be more knowledgeable when you are done and better informed about the care of your vagina. And I promise: NO quiz.   Read more >
