Getting Back on Track

0

It’s really difficult to get back to your exercise regimen once you get sick. My son who was very active in Taekwondo last summer had to stop when he got injured last May. His recovery period lasted for more than a month because he had to undergo a series of x-rays, consultations with doctor and blood tests, to rule out bone fractures and infections. During summer, he was very excited in attending all the sessions for his Taekwondo, and he even had a promotional test to upgrade his belt. so, he was very disappointed when he got injured because his Read More

Good News from a Friend

0

I got an unexpected email from a friend whom I haven’t heard of in a long time. When I replied back to her, I asked her if she can go online so that we can chat. It was so nice chatting with her and hearing all the news about her family. She said the reason why she hasn’t communicated for quite some time was her husband’s job always keeps them on the road, and good thing that they still don’t have kids who will surely be affected with the kind of erratic schedule that they have. But she had some Read More

Let’s Take Charge Of Our Own Health

0

In my office, staff get to receive reminders for annual physical examination at least two weeks before our appointment dates, and most of the time, I ignore it. That’s bad, I know. Our clinic will send the reminders thrice, I think, before finally letting the staff decide whether they want to be responsible for their own health or not. In my case, when the reminders stop, that’s the time that I start to remember it, and that’s the time that I call up the clinic to get schedule for the various tests. Or sometimes, I still don’t make follow through, Read More

Learning to Live with PVCs

1

Do you know what PVCs are?   They are premature ventricular contractions.  It’s a type of heart arrhythmia  or irregular heartbeat that afflicts many people, and unfortunately, I’m one of those people.  I’ve had them since 2005, and most of the times they can be scary, it’s like your heart will just stop beating and then you’ll just drop dead (just like what my first cardiologist told me! — that’s why I looked for another one),  but then, my cardiologist keeps on telling me that there’s nothing to worry about, and that they are considered benign.  There are days when I Read More

The Miracle of the Parking Ticket

3

This morning, we went to the hospital for a check-up, and just as we were about to leave, my husband noticed that the parking ticket was missing from his pocket. He searched for it in his wallet and on the car’s floor, and I even checked my bag just in case he gave it to me, but still, nothing, we couldn’t find it.  He also lost a parking ticket before and we had to pay Php150 as penalty, so he really couldn’t believe that it was happening for the second time.  He went back to the hospital to try to Read More
