I Am No Longer Embarrassed over My Smile

meWhen I was younger, my mom was busy raising me and my three younger brothers on her own. She was working two jobs at any given time, and sometimes even three. She was so busy trying to keep us in a home that she did miss out on a few things like teaching us about proper oral hygiene. I do not hold that against her at all, but I knew that I was going to need to see a cosmetic dentist in Greenwood Village if I wanted to have a nice smile.
I was really embarrassed over my smile because my teeth were crooked and stained. I was brushing them two to three times a day once I realized I was in danger of maybe losing some of them, and I also used a rinse and floss. While that routine did save my teeth, it was too little too late … Read More

The Quickest Way to Lose Weight With Hypothyroidism

Is there a really quick way to lose weight with hypothyroidism? Read on to find the answer to the question

Before I go into answer the question let us understand what hypothyroidism is and how do we gain weight with hypothyroidism.

Thyroid is a gland that produces hormones (namely t3 and t4).These hormones control the rate of metabolism within our body. Metabolism is the rate at which the food is converted into energy in our body.

Feline Contentment

Grigsby loves the amenities offered by inside living. He fits into our crew beautifully here. In this photo, he is even sharing the couch with my beloved Gumbo. Grigsby has worked his way into our hearts.

He does have a health issue right now. Not quite sure what happened, but his upper lip is swollen. I had noticed a little bit prior to going to the vet. Once the stress of going to the vet kicked in and he licked and licked and licked, he made that adorable little crack in the middle bleed. Both lips swelled up even more. They remain swollen to this day. I’m watching for evidence of infection, but thankfully none has been found. No point in putting bacitracin there as that would just encourage him to lick. I am monitoring closely just hoping it settles down and goes away. Thankfully, nothing else is swollen on … Read More
