The PCOS Diet Plan

“A Natural Approach to Health for Woman with Polycystic Overy Syndrome”

written by Hillary Wright, M.Ed. RD
Forward by Alice Domar, Ph.D.
Director of Mind/ Body Services at Boston IVF

September is PCOS Awareness Month- so I thought it appropriate to share this. I was diagnosed over 10 years ago.

I had my eye on this book for some time. Ath3na gifted it to me in Aug 2015. It’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. The PCOS Diet Plan is filled with detailed and well-researched information. In my opinion, Any woman with this condition should invest in a copy of this book.

Wright takes care to simplify her explanations and offers comparables to help understand her research. She makes it easy to under this syndrome, how to manage to live with it. She specifically delves into how to prevent conditions that women with PCOS are at greater risk for developing. Conditions like diabetes and heart decease.

Knowledge is power! If you have PCOS or know someone who does- and have lots of questions- this is THE BOOK to start with. Make this the first book in your arsenal against PCOS.

Thank you Ath3na, I am forever grateful to you.

Sunshine & Nieca 2005 – 2017

They were only months apart in age, I had them for 12 years. Sunshine passed on August 1, Nieca passed on Augst 29.

Each brought a unique light into my life. There was laughter, and snuggles, and countless moments of wonder in watching them. This is one of the few images I have of them together. It is my favorite among them. It looks like they’re praying.

My angel kitties, I’ll miss you.

Goodbye Nieca (bugs)

Goodbye Nieca, you were a joy and a love in my life. People will miss you greeting them and saying goodbye at the door. You were a fun and loving and lovable cat. You will be missed.

She passed tonight, peacefully, and joins our beloved Sunshine across the rainbow bridge. I am heart broken at this sudden loss and yet comforted to know that they are together. Nieca will be buried next to Sunshine.



Sunshine’s Memorial

Thanks to excess donations I am able to do this. I was looking for a garden stone shaped like a sun or had a sunshine on it. What I found at Earl May’s was a figure that looks remarkably close to Sunshine. It is 4 pounds of polyresin, so not movable by the cats. I already have a spot picked out.



GFM Help for Sunshine Vet Bill

Noone wants to wake up to find their pet in distress. This is what happened to me today. I found my beloved Sunshine lying by my desk. All she could do was breath, shake, and cry. After a visit to the vet, I set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help with the medical expenses. Please visit the link and you are able to- for Sunshine. Please, help me help my kitty.





BSG After the Fall

I would like to see a series based on life among the colonies after the fall. We know from episodes like “The Farm” that there were survivors from the holocaust. We also know that Caprica was spared from annihilation, unlike some of the other colonies. Which others had survivors? I also think it makes sense, that there may have been ships that were able to hide or evade the  Cylons in space. Ship’s captains and crews thinking outside the box could make it happen.

What would life be like among the Colonies? Is Caprica the only planet inhabitable? How do they deal with the radiation? Would people resort to Grace, being in a virtual existence while their bodies are in shielded chambers? How do they deal with each other? How do they rebuild their society?

What I see is the rise of a godless society. People coming to the belief that their gods had abandoned them in their hour of need. They also have resentment and anger towards Galactica and the fleet for leaving them behind.
