Embrace Positivity

I came across some words of wisdom from a guy named Omar Periu that intrigued me and so I'm sharing it here on EverythingHealth.

Most people live lives that aren't completely fulfilling because they’ve never learned to manage their minds and emotions. These are 10 rules for living a motivated life.
  • Condition your mind. Train yourself to think positive thoughts.
  • Condition your body. It takes physical energy to take action.
  • Avoid negative people. Don’t take anything that they say seriously.
  • Always remain flexible. No plan should be cast in concrete.
  • Act with a higher purpose. If it doesn’t serve your goal, it’s wasted effort.
  • Take responsibility for your own results. Don’t credit luck, good or bad.
  • Stretch past your limits on a daily basis. That’s how you grow and evolve.
  • Don’t wait for perfection; do it now! Perfection’s the enemy of good enough.
  • Be careful of what you eat. It takes physical energy to succeed.
  • Hang around motivated people. The positive energy will rub off on you.
This resonates with me....especially the part about avoiding negative people and making sure you are not one of them!!!

scintillating scotoma

Nothing like experiencing a medical condition first-hand to really help a doctor understand it from the patient's point of view.  After all these years, I had my first (and hopefully last) scintillating scotoma while sitting on the couch playing "words with friends" on my ipad and watching TV.  A scotoma is a partial loss of vision in a normal visual field.  Scintillate is flashing, sparkles.  Put them together and you have moving, flashing sparkles with a blind spot in your eyes.

This visual aura was first described in the 19th century  by a Dr. Hubert Airy who had migraine headaches.  The visual sparks and flashes are in a zig-zag pattern and they can precede a migraine headache or occur without any pain.   The scotoma affects both eyes and closing one or the other does not make it go away.  Sometimes the term "ocular migraine" or "retinal migraine"  are used to describe this phenomenon but these involve only one eye, not both.  The terms are often …

Do Doctors Make Too Much Money?

An article in theNew York Times says the reason health care costs are so high in the United States is because doctors are paid too much. I saw that and my eyes bugged out. I just came home from a meeting with physicians and hospital administrators and the entire meeting was spent discussing the financial challenges physicians face in keeping their doors open to see patients. The goal of this meeting was to keep health services in that community so patients will have someone to care for them. Not a person in the room would agree that the doctors earn too much.

Physicians paid too much? Lets break that down. A doctor spends a minimum of 11 years in education and training after the age of 18. Many are in training for 15 or more years. They are living on student loans and contributing zero to their family's income until the residency years. At that time they earn less than minimum wage if you factor in the 80-100 hour workweek. When a doctor emerges from training (and believe me…
