Throwback Thursday: Battling A Memory Monster

MEDICAL CORNER ….. from an awesome blogger friend!!! PTSD ….. “Battling A Memory Monster”. Take a look!!


On ‘Throwback Thursdays’ I want to share some older Poems and post of mine. I hope you will enjoy!

Today I want to share an article with you I wrote some time ago entitled ‘Battling A Memory Monster’.


It’s an article about PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome)

I think it’s very important to know that a lot of people are battling this. Especially around the Holidays! 

Not just veterans, but also victims of violence, abuse and other traumatic experiences.

I have severe PTSD myself and I want to give the people who are battling this, and any other mental condition, a voice, strength and support.

Please, read it. It might give you a better understanding of something that is not visible.


Don’t Judge, Just Care.

Lots of Love,

Just Patty

Not everything is “kosher” at Monsanto …… where the GMOs are made!!

As the “Doctor’s Voice” & MEDICAL CORNER …. a throwback post on GMOs. Very important to our health!

It Is What It Is


January 3, 2014 

14 Lawsuits filed against Monsanto. In May 2013, a farmer in eastern Oregon discovered GMO wheat growing in one of his fields, even though it is not commercially available and the field was never used as a test field. Japan and South Korea cut off their purchases of wheat from the Pacific Northwest, but have since resumed imports. Lawsuits against Monsanto ensued after the discovery.

A total of 14 lawsuits against Monsanto arising from the discovery of genetically-modified wheat in an Oregon wheat field earlier this year have been transferred to the U.S. District Court for Kansas, and assigned to Magistrate Judge Karen M. Humphreys.

MEDICAL CORNER … Healing power of cats’ purring!!

MEDICAL CORNER …. healing power of a cat’s purr!!

It Is What It Is

~~November 15, 2014~~

Our feline friends provide us with more than just emotional support. House cats may actually be contributing to our physical well-being. When a cat purrs within a range of 20-140 Hertz, nearby humans may be therapeutically benefiting from these vibrations. Purring has been linked to lowering stress, decreasing symptoms of dyspnea, lessening the chances of having a heart attack, and even strengthening bones.

Pet therapy is apparently gaining momentum in many medical communities, and according to Animal Planet’s website, there is scientific research that suggests pet owners live longer than those without pets.

It seems that our own animals have the ability to relieve us of our troubles, or at least make our worries seem less important. The bond between pets and their owners may never be fully understood (cats in particular have always struck me as magical and mysterious–and now they have healing powers?!) but it’s…

Google Doodle …. Celebrates Dr. Jonas Salk’s 100th birthday!!

MEDICAL CORNER …. Celebrating a pioneer’s birthday … the first polio vaccine. Not patented …. no personal profits!!

It Is What It Is

~~October 28, 2014~~ 

Google has celebrated the 100th birthday of Dr Jonas Salk, the American scientists who developed the first successful polio vaccine, with a doodle on its homepage.

The heart-warming illustration depicts two children holding up a sign reading “Thank you, Dr Salk!” – a tribute to the virologist’s work against a disease whose main victims were children.


Jonas Edward Salk (October 28, 1914 – June 23, 1995) was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed the first successful inactivated polio vaccine. He was born in New York City to Jewish parents. Although they had little formal education, his parents were determined to see their children succeed. While attending New York University School of Medicine, Salk stood out from his peers, not just because of his academic prowess, but because he went into medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician.

Until 1957, when…

MEDICAL CORNER …. Beware of corn!!

MEDICAL CORNER …. Corn: GMO versus organic!! Take a look!

It Is What It Is


~~October 4, 2014~~ 

Do you know what’s in your corn?

The FDA maintains that GMOs are “substantially equivalent” to real food. What do you think?

(NOTE: The Environmental Working Group tested produce for pesticide residue and found that sweet corn was among the 15 cleanest fruits & veggies. But GMO Bt toxin corn produces insecticide continually in every cell of the plant. There’s absolutely no washing that off. To be absolutely certain you are not eating pesticides, it’s best to buy organic).

It Is What It Is

~~October 2, 2014~~

There are too many negative events occurring in our world as we speak. I have already seen posts that attest to that. Mind you, I get my news here …. not through the TV. I feel I’m more educated and updated through you.

However, I wanted to start today with a bit of inspiration, motivation and something uplifting. I hope you enjoy this …. it came through my Facebook timeline today.

I may be behind and some may have already seen this. It’s an inspiration for me today.

MEDICAL CORNER .. October is all about pink!! Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!

It Is What It Is

~~October 1, 2014~~

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!


Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to…
