    Surviving Mother’s Day Without a Mother

    It’s that time of year again. When everyone is changing their blackberry display pics, facebook and twitter avatars to a picture of their mother. Work is sending out emails, everywhere is advertising Mother’s Day is this weekend. Sunday, tomorrow to be exact. It’s a beautiful day where you get to celebrate a mother’s love and how it has shaped you in your life. And although you show her love throughout the year, this one day you put ALL differences aside and tell her “ I appreciate and love you”. It’s a great day and one to be celebrated. Unfortunately, I like many others have lost my mother and so Mother’s…

    When Money Matters (and when it doesn’t)

    I am not ashamed to say that in my adult life I have lived in situations where I have had more than enough money to meet my needs and had situations where I am mentally adding up (down to the tax) all the items I am putting into the shopping cart.  I am also blessed with a loving support group who are there when I have it and, even more so, when I do not.  So, I am here to share two very important life lessons that I have picked up in my complicated, chaotic and circuitous life. As you may suspect –  having more money is a very nice…

    Last week, my company was involved in the Medical Association of Jamaica’s (MAJ) annual symposium, which allowed businesses in the field of health care to display their latest product offerings. I was pleased to see a few involved in health technology like myself. It tells me that the market is really changing as we are beginning to embrace technology more and more and understanding its importance to the health-care business. I was also impressed with the receptiveness of the audience which primarily consisted of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, medical technicians and even some outside of the medical field. As we went through the technology offerings with them, it struck me how much we have changed in…

    Should Women Propose?

    Should women propose to men? That was the question I asked my God mother’s dinner group and got an earful. I’ve been asking this question on IG Live and in person and the dynamics are always the same. The men are ok with it but the women say “over my dead body”/ Sorry about the background noise but they were pretty lively as well.

It is often caused by fluctuations in hormones (like serotonin) before your period. Some women barely experience these symptoms but for those who do, we understand how frustrating it can become.
