Why Do Men Cheat?
~
PCOS Lady
I have been watching and hearing about women push their men away for years… You know who you are! Then those women get infuriated at their men and his new “woman” that they caused to happen!
~ For years i have been bombarded by men of all ages (20’s through 70’s) … I asked every one that was attached why he was looking outside his relationship… I then asked if they talked to their partners about it and their woman’s reply… Most women refused to talk about it! Most had hormone imbalance issues! Issues they refused to have looked into with a doctor!
~ Men seek what they do not have with their wife at home!
~ Men tell me they love their wife…
FACT: Men show their love for you in making love to you!
~ If you are refusing his love making you are not wanting him!
~ Affection counts big with men as well!
~
Women, you must look at yourself and weigh if he is what you want in life, etc…
~
If he is not your “perfect” man, turn him lose without:
~ “breaking” him over your mistakes!
~ punishment
~ abuse of various kinds and degrees
~ a vendetta schemed out over years
~ a nasty divorce
~ etc…
* THANK YOU! … When you treat your men bad, it really makes it rough on the next woman! You know the truth of a scorned woman, it goes both ways in various degrees, etc… *
~ KARMA… Read up on it!
~
Women please own up to your mistakes and get help!
~ You know who you are…
~ Fix, resolve your childhood issues!
~ Fix, resolve issues from past men in your life!
~ Learn how to love “YOU”, then you can love a man…
~ Oh, there are far more females in the world then there are men!
FACT: Females are complex (men try to figure us out), men are simple in their thinking, etc…
~
FACT:
* “Good” and honest men are out there… *

Why Do Men Cheat?
~
It’s Not Just About Sex…and She May Not Be Any Better-Looking Than You
~
Some men cheat… Faithful mean are out there….
Some statistics say that roughly 50% of married men will cheat, and the vast majority won’t admit to it even after a woman asks the searing question, “Have you been unfaithful to me?”
~
A marriage counselor for over 20 years, rabbi and author Gary Neuman conducted a two-year study involving 200 men — 100 who cheated and 100 who remained faithful. His findings form the basis of his 2008 book The Truth About Cheating: Why Men Stray and What You Can Do To Prevent It.
~
Of the men surveyed:
~
~ 92% say it’s not just about sex
~ 88% say the other woman isn’t better looking or in better shape
~ 55% don’t tell their wives or deny cheating even when confronted with evidence
~ 48% say cheating is about an emotional disconnection from their wives
~ 12% would cheat no matter what
~
* Men are much more emotional than women realize. Husbands regard pleasing their wives as akin to ‘winning.’ If they feel valued, they won’t stray; but if they feel under-appreciated they turn elsewhere or behave in ways that push their wives away. Men who try to please their wives but are met with criticism begin to think they can’t win. *
~
“Appreciation is what they first and foremost get from the mistress,” said Neuman.
~
Finding out the truth is another matter. Neuman’s study found that if a husband cheats, there’s a 93% chance he won’t admit it. And 12% of the men he surveyed will cheat no matter what.
~
M. Gary Neuman is a licensed psychotherapist and rabbi who has counseled thousands of couples over 24 years. After talking to many men who have strayed, Neuman has identified some of the most significant relationship issues that lead to infidelity.

Cheating Survey Finds That People Cheat With People Less Attractive Than Their Spouses

The age-old assumption that people cheat because with someone better looking than their current partner may not actually be true, according to a new survey by Victoria Milan, a dating site for married people looking to have an affair.

The website polled over 4,000 of their members and found that most people using the site consider their significant others to be more attractive than their affair partners.

Interestingly, male respondents said they consider their significant others superior to their affair partners in other ways as well. Only 30 percent of men cheated with women younger than their current partners, and only a quarter of the men found their mistresses more interesting or more in shape than their partners.

So why cheat at all? Men admitted that they found their mistresses to be more passionate, better listeners and more caring than their significant others.

Over half of the female respondents also found their significant others to be more attractive than their affair partners, but 50 percent said their lovers were in better shape. Similar to the male respondents, women reported that their affair partners listen better and are more passionate than their man at home. And a whopping 89.6 percent of the women indicated that the man they’re cheating with makes them feel more appreciated than their significant other.

This isn’t the first time a dating site for cheaters has looked into the habits and preferences of its users. Ashley Madison, another dating website for people already in relationships, found that cheating men love drinking Guinness. And in August, the same site revealed what affair anthems cheating spouses prefer. Check out the slideshow below to see which songs cracked the top ten.

As a prior licensed bill collector:

It is far better to call your creditor and explain your scenario and what you can pay, etc…. Before being late is best…
KEEP NOTES! (date, time, who, company, convo)
Keep proof of payment with last statement showing o balance forever!
~
RECORD CALLS
Buy at Radio Shack: Removable Telephone Pickup… Attach it to your phone receiver and a tape recorder…
~ Check your state laws on recording though…

– Hope this all helps…

Tweak the letter how you want and need it to be…
Send it certified!
I have never been bugged after this was sent out!
Keep a copy for you…

Thanksgiving Morning Entrapment
~
Thursday, November 24, 2011

At 03:20, Companies 49 (Milmont), 43 (Holmes), and 62 (Vauclain) were dispatched to the 1000 block of Girard Ave for a reported vehicle into a pole. While en route, 70-7 confirmed they had two subjects heavily trapped and requested units to expedite. Upon arrival, Medic Ridley-7 requested the driver to be removed first. Crew from Rescue 43 popped the driver’s door and moved to the passenger’s side to begin the door pop on the that side. Upon arrival of Rescue 62, they were instructed by 43 Command to start roof removal along with the crew from Rescue 43. After roof removal was completed, EMS ascertained that the driver’s leg was entangled and the crew from 62 handled the driver’s removal.
~
43’s crew continued to work on the extrication of the passenger, who was heavily pinned due to the impact on the passengers side with a large tree. Crews from 43 popped the passengers door and made a third door in an attempt to gain better access to the victim. Due to the intrusion of the dash, firewall and rocker area, attempts were severely hindered. The tow truck was positioned to pull the vehicle from the tree for the crew to gain better access, but this proved unsuccessful due to a telephone pole and guide wire. 62’s crew utilized a ram from the center console area and 43’s crew utilized a spreader under the hinge area to gain enough room to safely disentangle the passenger’s legs.
~
All rescue operations were coordinated with Medic Ridley-7 and Ambulance 70. EMS was able to stabilize both victims throughout the extrication process and transport to a local trauma center. The Company was in service for approximately 1 hour and fifteen minutes to extricate both victims.

Diet Tips & Tricks
~
Diet for 2 days then add a few extra carbs every 3rd day! The body never gets used to it…
– Per research studies of late…
~
Water rehydrates you! I suggest keeping it with you all the time…
http://www.naturodoc.com/library/nutrition/water.htm
~ Naturo Doc on water…
~
Workouts:
Eat something like yogurt or drink a protein shake before you do… Otherwise you will lose muscle along with fat per Dr Oz… 5/8/2012 show…
~ www.Mercola.com
~ Sugar or HFCS eaten after a workout will completely shut down your body’s production of your Human Growth Hormone…
~ Dr Oz said do not grab an energy drink after a work out either for the same reason…
~
Isometrics:
A certified personal trainer told me to hold it 6 seconds each rep… 6 is the magic number!
~
Drinks – Clear soda is far better than colored ones… Colored ones have chemicals in it to hurt you… Mountain Dew is the worst! It has Bromade(sp) (Bromine) a poison in it shadowed by heavy amounts of sugar…
– Beer – Budweiser is the only beer loaded with chemicals which answers why most people get headaches drinking it!
(a beer distributor manager told me)
– * A headache is the 1st thing a person will usually experience when the body is rejecting what you are eating, drinking or taking….
~
Waist:
Healthy: Your waist should be half your height…
– To measure, suck your tummy in for a proper measurement per Dr Oz!
– Women, waist should be no more than 35″…
– Men, waist no more than 40″…
~
Do not ever eat a banana 1st thing! Tummy can’t digest it…
~
Biggest Loser says eat small meals, meat, veggies & sides the size of your palm…
~
Start with this list… I say modify…
~
You can always discard the bun and bread to use lettuce…
~
Remember to eat something every 2-3 hours…
Plus do not eat anything 3 hours before bedtime…
~
Always eat carbs with a protein! You never absorb the calories…
~
Drink a 12 oz of soda a day if you like…
Stay away from diet stuff – BAD for you!
Use butter never margarine, etc…
– Margarine clogs arteries!
~
Chew sugarless gum or keep hard candy or nuts or trail mix with you…
– 1/4 cup of almonds or walnuts daily are great!
– Pistachios are good too…
~
Know it takes 2 weeks to wean your body off carbs and cravings…
– Proteins keep your tummy satisfied…
~
Keep a high protein level daily of 30% to keep muscle mass….
~
“Key” Test
Get a blood test done called Serum Insulin Level test!
A blood test, level should be under 11 to lose weight… If 12 and higher you need a strict diet, hard exercise or you may have a hormone imbalance or something else….
~
PCOS Lady, I do say modify it for you…
~
Sensa

Margarine vs Butter
~
In a head-to-head battle between butter and its artificial competitor, the original wins by a landslide. Sure, the spreads have the same number of calories, but Margarine has more trans fat, which simultaneously raises your “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lowers “good” (HDL) cholesterol, according to the Mayo Clinic. “That’s the one ingredient we dietitians recommend to avoid completely,” Moskovitz says. To limit your risk of heart disease, stick with the real stuff. And choose whipped butter, which has a lower caloric density.

Hashimoto’s Disease

Posted in HASHIMOTO's DISEASE tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 2:35 am by PCOSLady

Things unfold inside us as we age like a rose blooms petal by petal...



Hashimoto’s Disease

~
PCOS Lady
Years ago a woman had messaged me asking if you could have PCOS and Hashimoto’s disease… Back then (2003-2004) research had not mentioned them together… Today the two are connected… There was little online then about Hashimoto’s disease, she learned from her doctor….
~
Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. It also is called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (theye-royd-EYET-uhss). Hashimoto’s disease does not have unique signs and symptoms. The disease typically progresses slowly over a number of years and causes chronic thyroid damage, leading to a drop in thyroid hormone levels in your blood. The signs and symptoms are mainly those of an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism).
~
The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism vary widely, depending on the severity of hormone deficiency. At first, you may barely notice any symptoms, such as fatigue and sluggishness, or you may simply attribute them to getting older. But as the disease progresses, you may develop more obvious signs and symptoms.
~
Signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
~
~ Fatigue and sluggishness
~ Increased sensitivity to cold
~ Constipation
~ Pale, dry skin
~ A puffy face
~ Hoarse voice
~ An elevated blood cholesterol level
~ Unexplained weight gain — occurring infrequently and rarely exceeding 10 to 20 pounds, most of which is fluid
~ Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness, especially in your shoulders and hips
~ Pain and stiffness in your joints and swelling in your knees or the small joints in your hands and feet
~ Muscle weakness, especially in your lower extremities
~ Excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)
~ Depression
~
Without treatment, signs and symptoms gradually become more severe and your thyroid gland may become enlarged (goiter).
~
Consult your doctor if you develop these signs and symptoms:
~
~ Tiredness for no apparent reason
~ Dry skin
~ Pale, puffy face
~ Constipation
~ Hoarse voice
~
Have periodic testing of your thyroid function if:
~
~ You’ve had thyroid surgery
~ You’ve had treatment with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medications
~ You’ve had radiation therapy to your head, neck or upper chest
~
NOTES
~
~ High blood cholesterol might be caused by hypothyroidism. And if you’re receiving hormone therapy for hypothyroidism caused by
~ Hashimoto’s disease can cause hypothyroidism….

Prostate Cancer (Men – Important)

Posted in OFF TOPICS, PROSTATE CANCER tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:56 pm by PCOSLady

THE PROUD STALLION... Get tested to stay a proud stallion! 1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer ... It is the #2 killer in men!


PROSTATE CANCER
~
PCOS Lady
Men i care about YOU! That is why i posted this… Please have anything out of the normal of “you” checked out… Something minor can mean something huge in you!! Don’t take a chance!
~ Your pride is not worth dying over and causing your family years of grief for this!
~
Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer in men of all ages. It is rare in men younger than 40.
Realize one in six men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, getting a prostate test is no laughing matter…
~
* All men know if something has changed in their “private” area… That change needs researched online then looked in to by a doctor or specialist!
~ Dr Mercola is world renown and supports his claims by good doctors, research and reliable sites! (Doctors hate him cause he is on our side, the people’s side telling us the “TRUTHS”…)
~
Prostate Cancer Symptoms
~
When cancer is confined to the prostate gland, prostate cancer symptoms are similar to BPH and prostatitis, and can include:
~
~ Strong urge to urinate immediately
~ Difficulty starting the urinary stream
~ A weak urinary stream once it starts
~ Dribbling after you think you’re finished
~ Frequent nighttime urination
~ Pain and/or burning when you urinate
~ Pain in the genital and pelvic area
~ Pain when you ejaculate
~ Frequent urinary tract infections
~ Blood in your urine or semen
~
Other prostate cancer symptoms may include:
~
~ unexpected weight loss
~ anemia
~ fatigue
~ pain in the lower back or abdomen
~
Because prostate cancer symptoms are similar to BPH symptoms and prostatitis symptoms it’s easy for you to assume that you have one disease when you could actually be suffering from something more serious. This is another reason why you should get regular examinations, especially if you are experiencing symptoms.

Top Ten Reasons to Avoid Your Doctor
~
July 25 2012
~
PSA Tests for Prostate Cancer
~
These tests actually reveal very little, and an irrelevant positive result will likely lead to a biopsy that comes with infection risk. The prostate-specific antigen test (PSA test), analyzes your blood for prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a substance produced by your prostate gland. When higher-than-normal levels of PSA are detected, it is believed that cancer is present. However, PSA screening barely has any impact on mortality rates from prostate cancer. As a result, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force will soon recommend that men not get screened for prostate cancer.
~
Today, many experts agree that PSA testing is unreliable at best and useless at worst for accurately diagnosing prostate cancer. Many also agree that routine PSA blood tests often lead to over-diagnosis of prostate cancer, resulting in unnecessary treatments. Similar to mammograms, the PSA screen has become little more than an up-sell technique. The false positive rate is high, and the bulk of the harm is a result of subsequent unnecessary treatments.
~
Diet is actually a factor that can greatly impact your prostate health and help prevent enlarged prostate and prostate cancer, but many physicians fail to address this.
~
You’ll want to eat as much organic (preferably raw) food as possible, and liberally include fresh herbs and spices, such as ginger. Make sure to limit carbohydrates like sugar/fructose and grains as much as possible to maintain optimal insulin levels, which will help reduce your cancer risk in general. Highly processed or charcoaled meats, pasteurized dairy products, and synthetic trans fats correlate with an increased risk for prostate cancer and should also be avoided.

Pat Elliott, ND

~
Symptoms:
~
~ anemia – anemia means a reduced number of red blood cells in the blood and is revealed on screening blood work as a reduced number of red blood cells (reduced RBC count and/or reduced hematocrit) In this type of anemia, the red blood cells are often microcytic (meaning the cells are smaller, which shows on bloodwork as a reduced “MCV”) and/or hypo chromic (meaning the cells have low hemoglobin content per cell, which shows on bloodwork as a low “MCHC” or “MCH”) Often the MCV and MCH/MCHC values begin to fall before the actual anemia begins to develop; these changes represent the body’s final attempts to continue producing red blood cells without an adequate supply of iron.
~ fatigue
~ poor physical endurance
~ excessive sleepiness
~ pale skin of face or hands, pale or bluish fingernails, pale inner eyelids
~ sore, inflamed tongue
~ lightheadedness or dizziness

Melatonin – Natural Hormone

Posted in MELATONIN tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:17 am by PCOSLady

PLEASE LAY DOWN... MY NERVES ARE WEARING THIN, ERRRR!


Melatonin
(N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine)
~
Melatonin is a hormone that naturally occurs inside the body and helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle of a person. Melatonin is available in supplement form and is used to treat sleep related disorders like insomnia and jet lag. Melatonin dosage that is considered to be safe and effective is around 1mg to 5mg. The effects of overdosing on melatonin will vary depending on the dosage and also with other factors like the genetic makeup of a person and age. It is best to seek immediate medical attention if you happen to overdose on melatonin supplements.

Melatonin, i became aware of it from a friend’s autistic child who had racing thoughts 24/7… It calmed him down and he slept through the night… Dosage is by weight and takes 30 days to build up in the body…
~
A good friend said his mother and he could never sleep soundly their whole lives… I mentioned trying melatonin… He has and has been getting several hours of sound sleep now… He is a person that worries and frets so does have nights he is awake for periods some nights…
~
You can try eating 2 bananas before bedtime… They are deemed the sleeping pill in a peel!
~
~ Melatonin is for kids, adults and dogs…
~ Melatonin is a little known natural hormone that effects many, as you can see by the deficiency list…
~ The Deficiency Test covers all hormones… A “KEY” test to take IMO….
