Meet The Contributors

Mandy ~ I am a stay at home mom who has been on a medical roller coaster ride going from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what is wrong with me. All of the doctors agreed that there is something medically wrong with me, they just don't know what... Basically, just about every time that I go to the doctor, I wind up with a new diagnosis. It is very frustrating. I hope that some of these links will maybe help you or lead you in the right direction.

Ferd ~ I have had the honor and pleasure of practicing Internal Medicine for over 25 years. I am now enjoying sharing my thoughts and experience in the blogosphere in a number of ways. I am grateful to Mandy for including me on her excellent blog, Texas Medical Freak!

New Year’s Resolution

I just found a great blog, just in time for my New Year’s resolution. This morning I was checking for new Entrecard blogs and found Quit Smoking Together.

I have tried over the years of smoking to quit many times without much luck. Even though I hate the smell, I really hate the fact that they are $5.00 a pack now (I said that I would quit when they hit $2.00 per pack LOL so much for that), not to mention my children want me to quit and my mother always nagged me to quit. Despite all of this and health problems…I still smoke?

I have signed up to stop smoking with Kelly come and join us a form a sort of online AA for smokers who want to quit. It could be OLSA (Online Smokers Anonymous).

That sound like a winner! I've been smoking Djarum Clove cigarettes for a few years and it's so hard to quit. Anytime I'm stressed out, I'm ready to go to the little gazebo we have at Baylor and take a puff. I'm definitely going to join in on the fight to quit and what a clever name! Take Care

Join us and spread the word! I can't tell you how many times that I have tried to quit and the ways that I have used.
I figure power in numbers, it has to work because I am tired of smoking.
Good Luck =^./.^=
