FDA Warns About the Psoriasis Drug, Raptiva

Health is wealth. This saying remains true to this day. The hubby and I know at least a couple of loved ones who suffer from Psoriasis and we see that it can really be a serious disease if it is not managed and treated well. Psoriasis is an auto immune-system disease that is characterized by red patches around the skin and Raptiva has been a popular drug taken by people who has Psoriasis and has been found to be related to a deadly brain infection that is named Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalophathy or PML.

Warnings have been sent out about this medicine, people have been told about the possible effects. It will be best to have your doctor’s opinion about this issue. Investigation was initiated by the United States Food and Drug Administration on deaths that are possibly related to PML.

If you happen to know of someone who has been using the aforementioned drug and have suffered damages, you might want to check with Mark & Associates, P.C. provides services that is in direct connection to this drug. Know your right to claim if damages have occurred because of this drug. It is always best to be in the know than suffer the consequences when it is too late.

No V Date Yet and Some Events Coming

The month is almost over and the hubby and I haven't had a decent V date yet! We are both hoping that this coming weekend will be "it" day for us. I have already talked to my folks to take over taking care of my son for half of the day this coming Saturday as the hubby and I will attend a couple events.

We are excited to be meeting 198 other bloggers this coming Saturday in SM Marikina for the WiFi testing. My friend Mhel will be coming over with Rizza and I am hoping to be able to meet other bloggers as well. The hubby and I have met a handful of new online buddies via Plurk. Thanks to Earth of Earlingorgeous. I have created a Plurk account middle of last year but never got the hang of using it! Earth was the one who encouraged me to get active once again. I then deleted my old account and created a new one. :D And now I cannot stop plurking.

You can add me up if you have a plurk account. :D

Elegant Spectacles that Fit the Budget

I spend so many hours in front of the computer every single day, which is why I know I should not be surprised why eye strain has been almost like a permanent thing these past few weeks. Now I know there are prescription eyeglasses for only $8.

I’m sure you have read about Zenni Optical in the New York Times. Now seeing straight without breaking bank is possible because of Zenni. And I wouldn’t really mind if I sport this pretty pair in the future. It is guaranteed durable and looks hip enough for me.

Busy Everyday

I have long accepted the fact that with the choice that I made of being a work from home mom, comes the pressure from all corners of the home and more from the internet. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do. I wouldn't have it any other way. I tried getting a nanny, but our experience wasn't the most pleasant to say the least.

True, it can get crazy. Especially when the pressure would come from every corner. Which makes it necessary for me to keep a balance and resolve to have a sort of "me" time every chance I get - to keep my sanity.

A devotion to prayer each day is important. I miss one and I go silly with decisions I make, big or small. But so far, in our more than seven years of being married and caring for the little guy for almost four years, practically single handedly. I know this is something that I am not going to regret until my dying days. :D

One of the major issues that we know exists in the community where our church is located is drug abuse. It has been ongoing even in the urban area and is the number one cause of crime in our society. As a church we can only counsel and advise private drug rehab to those who are willing to listen. It is part of the restoration process of an individual who has given himself to drugs for some and who would like to get back to his feet.
