From the blog: “Over the weekend, I was talking with a girlfriend who shared with me how frustrated she was with her husband because he wouldn't put the replacement trash bag in the bin after taking out the trash. She said, “Why won’t he freaking replace the bag? I’m busy taking care of the kids, washing the dishes plus working a 9 to 5pm full-time job. He is not picking up the slack.” On the other hand, a guy friend of mine mentioned just last week that he gets annoyed with his wife sometimes because while he cooks all the family meal, does the supermarket shopping on top of working a 13-hour day, his wife just makes a mess and doesn't contribute to keeping the house clean.”

From the blog: “When you are suffering from diabetes you could gain excess weight because your sugar levels are difficult to manage. In fact, according to different studies, 80% of patients suffering from type 2 diabetes are more prone to become overweight. If you let yourself gain more pounds, your condition could get worse and your life can be greatly affected by the debilitating symptoms of the disease."
From the blog: :"Recently, I have had the opportunity to speak with some major media outlets regarding kidney health, specifically as it relates to kidney failure and the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the health challenges that former NBA player Lamar Odom is currently facing. While I am always grateful for the chance to shed light on any urological health topic, it is often with a desire to dispel the myths that can come with mainstream interpretations of these health conditions.”
