My Allergies Are Bothering Me, Now What?

It’s Cherry Blossom time in my beautiful city of Macon, GA.  We happen to be the Cherry Blossom capital of the world, despite the weather preventing the blossoms as usual this year.   The people have still traveled here and the event calendar is still jam packed with a host of activities for you to enjoy.  Here’s the thing….quite a bit of the festivities are held outside.  That’s no problem if pollen does not affect you.  However, if you are like me, pollen season is your least favorite part of the year!

There is good news!  There are some approaches you can take to hopefully get relief.  You may not want to subject yourself to the Cherry Blossom festivities, but at least you can get along with the regular day to day routine with minimal suffering.

My God son and I had lunch yesterday and every time he sneezed, he said “sorry, my allergies are bothering me”, lol!   He gets the shine for today’s post!

A Review of the Transderm Scop Patch: 15 Years Anchored in Sisterhood

On April 22, 2016 my line sisters and I celebrated 15 years of sisterhood and service in Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority, Inc.  In honor of this anniversary, we set sail for 4 days on the Carnival Victory Cruise ship from Port Canaveral headed to Nassau, Bahamas!  I was a nervous wreck because my previous experience with cruising was not a good one due to extreme motion sickness.

I agreed in the reunion planning stages to try a cruise again after my mother had success with the Transderm Scop patch. I do not regret that decision at all. Editors Note: ***Transderm Scop patch requires a prescription from your doctor.***

January Addictions

Have you ever thought your were addicted to something?

So many miscellaneous things crossed my radar in January that deal with addiction that I decided to end the month with a My Health Monday on a Thursday 😉 !



No, I’m not addicted to gambling, but I was addicted to the show “Sex in the City” so I had to get a picture at the casino on the machine 🙂  Continue reading

Ladies, Do You Want Viagra for Females

***Warning, this My Health Monday post is more explicit than a typical day on PFL***

Would you be surprised if I told you that a common question amongst 30 – 40 year old women for me has to do with decreased libido?

Ladies, Do You Want Viagra for Females

I actually generated this post after reading a post about the FDA’s recent rejection of a Dopamine pill that increases female sexual libido.  I found the discussion on the post less than intelligent so I decided to draft a conversation topic for the PFL community.  Continue reading

The Controversy of Emergency Contraception in the Pharmacy

Did you see the episode of Law & Order last season where it started with the disoriented young lady strolling into the pharmacy and requesting a Plan B pill?

The pharmacist was very rude and judgmental then proceeded to lecture the girl about safe sex, abstinence, etc.. Unbeknownst to the pharmacist, she had been raped.

That was very extreme in my opinion, but the fact of the matter is; by law, pharmacists have the right not to sell Plan B if they don’t want to.


The Controversy of Emergency Contraception in the Pharmacy - Rx Fitness Lady


I was thinking of using this post for the 2nd Mini Blog Challenge Party  Controversial topic, but chose to discuss a hot spot for me “If you say “She’s Cute to be Dark-Skinned””!


A few weeks ago in Sunday School, we discussed the controversy amongst pharmacists (To Sell or NOT to Sell).  I thought I’d chat with you here at Rx Fitness Lady for a hot My Health Monday topic.

I was motivated last month to get my 2013-14  flu shot after the overly anxious overnight shift crew nagged me to give them their shots!

Have You Ever Thought About Killing Yourself

It is true that white men have the highest risk of attempting suicide.  Women and teens have had reported attempts as well.

No one is excluded from the possibility!

A young white man that I used to baby sit when I was a teenager, committed suicide at the age of 21 right when I came out of pharmacy school.

I had a cultural eye opener a few summers ago when 2 suicides of young black men occurred within 1 week & I experienced the community fall out surrounding those 2 incidents.

Just this summer, I had an older white female patient commit suicide.

That is a diverse pool of people!

For My Health Monday, I am bringing awareness on Rx Fitness Lady for the observance of “World Suicide Prevention Day” tomorrow, September 10th.  You can click the link to get a wealth of information or here for the prevention lifeline.

Responsible Pharmacists Recycle

It’s DAY 3 of my first blog event: the 7 Day Mini Blog Challenge Party!  Today’s topic for bloggers participating is “My Passion Is (Fill in the Blank)” or “A Virtual Vision Board“.

If you’re just tuning into this PAR-TAY, ENTER MY $100 GIVEAWAY HERE!

Many of you probably gathered that I’d talk about group fitness or maybe breakdown my vision board from the girl’s weekend!  I beat that horse on a regular around these parks! Today for the party, I’m sharing something very near and dear to me.

My childhood best friend’s mother instilled in me these recycling habits and they stuck!   Nothing irritates more than to see things being wasted. That’s exactly what we do when we don’t recycle…create waste!  I recycle all kinds of stuff and I advise you do the same if you have access to recycling pick up in your neighborhood.  All though, my best friend’s mom use to transport that stuff downtown herself!  Anywho, Today I’m talking recycling in the pharmacy.

Almost three summers ago while I was awaiting these two to enter the world…
