Five-Minute Friday~”AFTER”

  Linking up with The Gypsy Mama (Lisa-Jo) today for Five-Minute Friday. Today’s prompt is “After” Ready…Set…Go!     Defining moments. They tend to occur AFTER something happens…whether it’s an event, an accomplishment, a tragedy…and it made me think of the defining moments in my life. AFTER I graduated from high school AFTER I graduated from pharmacy school AFTER I married my high-school sweetheart AFTER my life was uprooted to move to Atlanta AFTER the birth of my first baby {Read More}

Join Me Today at “Inspire-a-Fire” to read A Letter to my Enemy

Join me today over at Inspire a Fire to read “A Letter to My Enemy” if you haven’t read it before. Satan has so many tools at his disposal, and he is so sneaky in the way he uses them. Don’t fall into the trap of prescription drug addiction like I did. Sure, I had grand-mal-siezures, broken bones, surgery…plenty of good reasons to need narcotics (Lortab) for pain. But even as a pharmacist, I didn’t realize the physical effect they {Read More}

The Honesty of a Child…{My Marlee-girl}

  When Marlee was in kindergarten at Mauldin First Baptist, her teacher had to test each of the children at the end of the year on their alphabet. Mrs. Alli called out the letters in no particular order for Marlee to name each letter…   When Alli and I had a conference at the end of school, she informed me that Marlee had received 100% on her alphabet, but she’d had to alter the rules for one particular letter. When {Read More}

Seven Important “P” Words That Can Make or Break You

  1. Peace~Claim it; God has already given it to us. I have said these things to you, than in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 ESV) 2. Procrastination~Stop it; We always regret it when we procrastinate. Why do we do it even though we know better? The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. (Proverbs {Read More}

Five Minute Friday~Broken

Broken. I get so frustrated over broken dishwashers, piled up laundry, and dog hair on the floor. I forget what’s important. I am broken. Young school children happily carrying on their day have their lives abruptly and horrifically taken by a crazed gunman. Our community is broken. Pornography is readily available to anyone on the Internet. Many dollars and days are being spent in Washington DC arguing gay marriage. Drug addiction is rising faster than ever before. Our nation is {Read More}

A Letter to My Enemy

  Maybe having my wisdom teeth pulled was my first mistake. At only 16, the decision was made for me. There must be a reason God gave us “wisdom” teeth, regardless of who actually named them. The pain from that surgery was the first time I let you into my life. You did a good job. You took away my pain and only made me a little nauseous. After a few days, the pain was gone, and so were you. {Read More}

Five-minute Friday~Remembering to be Thankful

  Five minutes. Okay. I can do this. This is my first time participating in the five-minute Friday linkup, but I thought it would be a great exercise to hone my writing skills…or just randomly throw my thoughts out to the world-wide web  I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker over at The Gypsy Mama and today’s topic is “Remember.” My hubby has been out of town for the last three days, so it’s been just me at home with the kiddos. Three {Read More}

How to Identify an Unknown Pill: Drugs.com Tutorial

A few posts ago I did a tutorial on drug interactions. As I said then, it’s so important for us, as patients, to take responsibility for our own health and educate ourselves so we are not so dependent on others.  With the availability of the internet and some direction on which sites are reputable, there is TONS of FREE education right here at our fingertips. As I love to say, my go-to’s are God and Google. (Care to tweet that?) {Read More}

Author Interview~The Greatest Book Ever Written

I don’t normally do author interviews on my blog, but this is one Author that had to be recognized. This is an interview with the author of THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK EVER WRITTEN. Click here to tweet 🙂 Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? I am the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. I do not faint or grow weary; My understanding is unsearchable. (Isiah 40:28) I am the Alpha and the Omega, who {Read More}

How to Find Your Own Drug Interactions: A Drugs.com Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a tutorial I posted on YouTube on drug interactions.  As I’ve shared in my last few blog posts, drug interactions are becoming a huge problem due to the increasing number of prescriptions people take. Take a few minutes (it’s short, I promise) to watch the video and then practice with your own prescription medications to see if there are any problems taking them together. If you do find interactions, don’t panic, and don’t abruptly stop taking your {Read More}

Seven Reasons to Become Your Own Pharmacist…Well, Sort of…

Working in retail pharmacy for 21 years, I saw the following scenario way too many times. The circumstances and drugs were different, but the result was the same. The patient had been placed in danger due to the pitfalls that can occur when getting a prescription filled. And I’m talking about when the prescription is filled correctly from the first step to the last. These pitfalls go beyond the actual filling of the prescription. In the busy, prescription-hungry culture we {Read More}
