New Facebook Page!



Hello Readers,


This past week I decided to create a Facebook page for this blog. It can be found on the search box on Facebook under the same title: Thoughts and Ramblings on Life, Love, and Health or you can get to the page by clicking on the link here: Thoughts and Ramblings on Life, Love, and Health. If you like, once you get to the Facebook page, you can click the "like" box and then anything I write on that page (including blog posts) will automatically show up in your Facebook newsfeed.


I have been considering doing this for a while and finally decided to take the plunge because I deactivated by personal Facebook page after many years of having once. And yes, there will be a whole blog post dedicated to that topic sometime in the near future! The blog page is not a substitute for my personal Facebook page but rather an entire different entity. My goal for the page is to have it as an more of an interactive place to discuss blog entries as well as a forum to discuss a variety of topics pertaining to life, love, and health.


This is the first time I have set up a blog page and I am interested in any ideas that other authors and page owners may have to make it a better page. I hope to see you all there and once again, thank you for your continued support of Thoughts and Ramblings on Life, Love, and Health.

  2. I am not sure how many will visit mine either but I figured I had to give it a shot! It has been quite a learning experience trying to figure out how to connect the blog and the blog FB page; took me days! It is all set up now though thank goodness.

10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse

After careful consideration and a lot of research, I made a decision after the holidays to embark on a cleanse/detox. I will start by saying that I have never done anything like this before, mostly because I don't believe in fad diets, or any diet for that matter, and also because I'm not sure, with all my health issues, how good it would be for my body.


However, I had been having some new digestive issues and some of my other autoimmune symptoms were acting up sporadically here and there. I also really overdid it and made some consistently bad food choices over the holidays and I was trying to get my food cravings under control. The digestive issues were not anything severe that impaired my daily living, but I am slightly paranoid about my family history of ovarian cancer and I am at the age my mom was when she was diagnosed. The most overlooked and under recognized symptoms of ovarian cancer are the digestive issues I was having such as bloating, gas, and constipation. Sinc…

Low Dose Naltrexone

In my last blog entry I discussed my current experiences with an integrative medicine doctor. (Going Down the Road of Integrative Medicine). In that entry, I mentioned a new medication I was prescribed by this doctor called low dose naltrexone (LDN) and I think that it is worthy of its very own blog entry so here we go. Be forewarned, it's a bit complicated...


Since we have the modern day miracle of Google, I am not going to spend a lot of time describing LDN and exactly how it works, but I think there are some basics that are important. Naltrexone is a medication that was created in the late 1970's as a treatment for heroin overdose and subsequently used in larger doses (50-300 mg) to treat heroin addicts. It blocks the opiate receptors in our body, which are also found on immune system cells. The next discovery, in the 1980's, was that naltrexone at lower doses (hence why it is called low dose naltrexone), blocks these opioid receptors and increases the endorphin level…

Sjogren's and Disability

I have been reading a lot of posts of the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation Facebook page lately about disability for this disorder. People seem to have a lot of questions and comments not only about the process itself of obtaining disability, but also about the journey which is at best, extremely stressful. Having gone through the arduous process myself, I thought it might be helpful to blog about my experience in the hope that someone may find the information useful or at the very least, know that they are not alone in their struggles and frustration with getting through this system.




My journey with disability began in 2008 when I was put on short term disability through my former employer. After a period of time (I believe it was ninety days), it converted to long term disability which was a benefit I had elected through my employer, thank god. What that meant was that a private disability company, contracted through my employer, paid me sixty percent of my previous year's gro…
