I promised to do a post on Biogaia (infant probiotics) so here it is! I’m not quite sure where to start, so I’ll start with how we came across this product.  My son had horrible gas with excruciating pain from the time he was 2 weeks old.  We tried gas drops, we tried gripe water, we tried lots of burping and tummy time. We tried putting BB on Nutramigen.  We tried Zantac.  Nothing worked.  We didn’t know what was wrong and long story short we were eventually referred to a Pediatric GI…

I have always valued my close friends.  To be honest, our relationships have transcended friendship and expanded my family.  And even though I might be out of touch with some of my friends, when we get together it's just like old times.  It is a testament to the depth of our friendships.  True friends do not need to talk to and see each other everyday.  The bonds are deep and do not need constant nurturing.

Recently, I decided to reconnect with some friends from my old Staten Island…

Just Say No by Zaharah Zaidi ( A Tween Perspective on Substance Abuse)

When you become a tween/teen, you are exposed to many negative influences and may be forced to make life-changing decisions.  It’s a time when you go to middle school or high school and have to confront all types of  peer pressures, including drugs, alcohol, and smoking.  It is easy to give into temptation and go with the flow to protect your “cool” status.  But the end result could be addiction or even death.

Many children think that it’s okay to try drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes. …

Let's Talk Driving Under the Influence

Take a good look at the picture above.  Does it shock you?  Well this is what could happen to you if you start using drugs and alcohol.  With the death of British singing sensation Amy Winehouse and what would have been my brother Larry's 46th birthday looming, I have been giving a lot of thought to the dangers of using drugs and alcohol.  Sadly, it has become so commonplace in our society that we have become apathetic about the dangers of substance abuse.  Often when we hear that a…

Beautiful Skin From the Inside Out

Skin needs to be healthy in order to look its best. As a nurse, I knew this, but I never did much to take care of my skin. I knew I should drink more water to keep it hydrated and used lotion once in a while, but that was about it. Then in January 2009, I was diagnosed with skin cancer on my nose. There’s nothing like having surgery to remove cancer from your face plus two reconstructive surgeries to get a person’s attention! Last year, I developed a rash on my wrists and hands and found out… Continue

Failing to Succeed

Toddlers and Tiaras: Now Botox Injections For Kids

Posted on on May 13, 2011


Have you ever seen TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras reality series?  I have never been able to watch a full episode.  Five minutes is my limit.  It’s so vile how these mothers are (for lack of a better word) pimping their children.  Get a life, ladies?  How will your children grow to become a normal, productive members of society when you’re teaching them to be vain and…
