Are You Losing Sleep?

Take note women! I've read a fact about a medical finding from sleep specialist Charlene Gamaldo of Johns Hopkins about a sleep apnea research.

Sleep apnea has been mostly focused on men. It may not hold true for women who have commonly cited symptoms such as excessive snoring at night and daytime sleeping and who are more likely to complain about trouble falling and staying asleep.
That means that these women are frequently misdiagnosed and their sleep complaints often blamed on anxiety or insomnia.

According to Dr. Gamaldo, if you experience insomnia-like symptoms, feel irritable during the day and have trouble concentrating, it's worth seeing your doctor to ask about a sleep study.

Have a Cancer-Free Skin!

Don't you think we should be protective about our skin care? Perhaps, the following recommendations might be of great help courtesy of dermatologists from John Hopskins :).
  • Slather sunscreen. - apply liberally and frequently with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Decrease exposure. - avoid long periods under the sun, particularly between 10am and 3pm.
  • Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. - despite manufacturer's claims, there is no such thing as safe UV radiation!
  • Screen your skin. - a strange looking mole or a family history of skin cancer warrants a visit to a dermatologist.
Enjoy the summer!

Philippines' Ex-President Cory Aquino is Gone!

Yes, to many Filipino people, Cory Aquino maybe gone physically, but her memories will live forever. She finally joined her creator on August 1, '09 (Philippine time) and it was overwhelming to see her supporters, friends, colleagues and families are all there. She was just a sweet mother to many, and I am a witness to that. I was there when the peaceful revolution took place, she became the president.

The past few days, I was touched watching her eulogies and the funeral. I spent some tears infront of the TV, lol!

Her life had been very colorful and full of history, and for sure, she will be a hero to many!

Hubby's Birthday!

Today is hubby's birthday. I have some gifts that I bought for him couple days ago, and he didn't know it! So, I will surprise him tonight! I can't drive yet, so it would be obvious to buy something for him if I would let him drive for me going to the store and buy something for him for a surprise, lol! He's always inquisitive, so I don't wanna run out of words :). So, all I did was to order online!

Well, thank goodness, he loves those shirts! Perfect for summer wear. I also thought of taking him to a nearby community night out just to see small things and a short walk.

So, I will have a date with my birthday boy tonight! ;)
