Essay; Marriage is Prison for Some Women


  One of the main comments I've heard from women patients in my office is, "I want to be alone, not married. I wish I was free and single like you." Many women feel like prisoners in their marriage and their physical ailments and stress level are consequently very high. I bet many married men …

Body Truth; Do you know about your own body?


   Everyone walks around in their body 24/7 yet know very little or think it's too complicated to figure out. I'm supposed to know something about my car, my house, the grocery store, my money and food, drugs, how to drive, the highway system, office politics, and the holidays, but knowledge about my body, or …

Essay; The Feminine Word Equivalent to the Masculine Word, “Emasculate”


It's time for this conversation.  So the first emotional, resistant response from blogger "Anonymous": on here was this; "Was hoping to find an answer to an interesting quirk of language, but instead found a rambling, borderline nonsensical Feminist rant about gender roles. I'll do you a favor; TL; Dr. Is there a female equivalent to …

Essay; Middle Age Dating


I'm fifty-six.  My twenty-year-old son says, "Mom, you're such a hippie". Well, sort of. The birth years for hippies are 1945-1965 so I was born at the tail end; in 1963. But if you sat in the middle west in a Christian church, surrounded by white people and Republicans, you didn't get the hippie memos …

Essay; Men Have Feelings During Sex


WHAT?  Seriously? I read this article two days ago because I'm trying to figure something out. Sex Reveals His True Feelings My jaw was dropping open as I read it.  I'm not sure I believe it but it is from "The Huffington Post" and the fellow sounded sincere.  Then I discussed it with some women. …

Body Truth; Bruce Lipton’s book “The Biology of Belief”


I read Bruce's 1st edition of this book several years ago when it came out and now finished his latest one with changes just now.  I recommend this new 10th Anniversary Edition. I was reading it because I'm writing my own book that is a memoir encompassing the first half of my life, with the …

Essay; Sad and Sorry…Pivoted


I was just, in the flow of things, feeling sad and sorry today thinking about the fact that we are heading into the Memorial Day weekend and I am mate-less because he died March 13th.  That could make you feel sorry for me in and of itself, especially since he was my soul mate but …

Body Truth; “Hand Over Your Body!”


In 2012, the US spent an average of $8,915 per person on health care, reaching a total of $2.8 trillion.  Wow.  I've been gauging the tone of social media and TV media for people's feelings about their health, healthcare, physicians, and wellness.  I believe we may be reaching a saturation point with the public's patience …

Body Truth; size bias has changed so much in six years


“Fat’ is usually the first insult a girl throws at another girl when she wants to hurt her. I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me; but then, you might retort, what do I know about …

Re-Program; Prejudice Toward Fat People


I have been a clinical massage therapist for 11 years.   I have worked on thousands of bodies, all body types, male and female.  I had one young female patient ask me once, "Do you ever hate someone's body?"  Wow.  "No".  That would be a bit incongruous with being a healer, don't you think?  Yet, …
