Create Your PMS Support System

Years ago I had a tough time with PMS symptoms – and felt very alone. I had precious few girlfriends that I could really talk to about the pain, discomfort, and emotional stress that came with my PMS, so most of time I had to endure these dark times alone.Since I created, I’ve come in contact with many women from all over the world who also suffer from PMS or PMDD. Interestingly, most of them thought they were fighting this battle alone as well....more

A War on Women? Not Just Conservatives!

If there is a war on women, it isn’t about birth control and it isn’t just from the right. It’s about women. It’s the continuous trashing from the left and the right and, sadly, from both men and women. The most striking example isn’t – and shouldn’t be – about contraception. That fight keeps the conversation about women in the bedroom instead of the boardroom. Instead, the argument should be about leadership, and most obviously, about women in politics....more

Heart of Gold

I travel around to people's homes to help families with children who have special needs. I was sent to a little town and found the address. It was a  tiny little house with several families living there. Living in southern Arizona is not easy especially in the summer. Some days are 115 degrees for months with no sign of rain and wind blowing, dust and tumble weeds.They did not even have a fan but they did have a water cooler in the window that you had to go outside to fill it with water every hour or so....more

Words fail me

For the most part, I'd say that I am a fairly positive person, and in general, I believe the tone of my writing reflects this. I'm struggling to find positivity tonight, though... as a matter of fact, struggling to string together anything remotely meaningful or even coherent... after coming across an article this afternoon that completely threw me for a loop. I'm not going to go into details as to what the article says, but I'll post a link and leave it up to you as to whether or not you want to read it for yourself. ...more

Are You Sure There's No War on Women? My Health Story

Are you absolutely certain there is no Republican "war on women"? Because I'm a little frightened to be a woman in this country right now, and from where I'm standing, I feel like I am under attack. Women are being bombarded with legislature at the state and federal level aimed at taking away our rights. And Republicans are leading the charge. ...more

Feminism Is About Men Too

 I started to write about International Women’s Day 2012, but the topic left me cold.Frankly I hadn’t even known there was an international day celebrating women—and the invisibility of the event surprised me. I mean, here I’d just gone and outted myself as a feminist and I didn’t even know about this? Talk about the media burying social issues!...more

Stereotyping in 2012: Necessary Lessons to Teach My Son?

 For the past month, I've listened to and read news articles about the killing of Trayvon Martin, an African-American teenager who was gunned down because he looked 'suspicious' while walking through his neighborhood wearing a hoodie. The absurdity of how and why Trayvon was killed is still under investigation, but it has shocked and outraged people all over the country, and now people from state to state are wearing hoodies, in protest, to publicly display how ridiculous Trayvon's killing was....more
