It's Positive????
Posted By : Rona Gura

Have you had Covid?  If so, what were your symptoms?    I first noticed on Saturday that I was slightly congested, had a mild cough, and I felt tired. When I woke up on Sunday, given the symptoms and the fact that I was out of the country recently, I thought I should be vigilant and take a home COVID test.      I was genuinely shocked and surprised

It's Just A Cold
Posted By : Rona Gura

I came down with a cold last week. I knew immediately it was just a cold because my husband had one the week before. And he kindly gave it to me.    But in this era of Covid, congestion and coughing raises health concerns to new levels.  As soon as I started feeling unwell, I began taking in home Covid tests.  I even went to Urgent Care to take a C

As bloggers we are supposed to refrain from writing about political issues. In fact, I had another blog written to be posted for today. But the topic seemed trivial considering what we are witnessing happen in Ukraine. And so, I cannot stop myself from sharing my feelings about the horrors that are occurring in Ukraine.     I watch the internationa

I Need A Nap

I have seen so many articles lately which tout the importance of consistent nightly sleep. Apparently, some of the few benefits of having healthy sleep patterns are improvement in memory, reduction of stress and anxiety, aid in weight loss, reduction in inflammation, a sharper focus, and, essentially, help you live longer.   I, admittedly, hav

Don't Do As I Did

  As I wrote about last week, I am a horrible patient. While I am very conscientious about going for my annual check-ups with my internist and gynecologist as well as my annual mammography, I rarely follow up with anything else. I am sharing my recent experience in the hope that, perhaps, I help someone else.     Three years ago, during my annual

I'm Sick
Posted By : Rona Gura

  I am a big baby in two aspects of my life, my birthday (which I have already blogged about) and taking care of myself. As my husband who is a doctor will attest to, I very rarely go to the doctor (other than my annual check-ups) and, when I do, I complain incessantly. When I get sick, I revert to a whiney, whimpering ten year old girl.     I’m

Who's Choice Should It Be?

For the past several weeks, I have been following the story of Brittany Maynard. For those of you that are unfamiliar with her story in January 2014, at twenty-nine years old and married for just one year, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and told she had three to five years to live. Two months after she underwent surgery to remove part of the

Memory is a funny thing. There are some things I have a lot of trouble remembering. Several times a week, I’ll find myself walking into the pantry in my house or the file room in my office only to forget what I went in to get. And five minutes after I take my daily vitamin, I find myself trying to remember whether, in fact, I actually took the pill
