    Snacking isn’t always bad. In fact, it can keep us from overeating during meals or when hunger gets the better of us and we binge. There are ways to do it right, and here are some of the top tips.

    Caregiving is one of the most stressful duties anyone can face. Family caregivers can experience PTSD, depression, high stress and other health problems and I should know. I’ve done it, twice, and the effects can be long lasting. That’s why it’s important to follow some advice that is sometimes too easy to ignore. Take it from me. Don’t ignore it.

    Ringworm is a contagious skin rash caused by a fungus (not an actual worm).   It can affect different parts of the body in similar ways and is most often seen as a circular red rash with raised edges and a clear center.  Sometimes it won't itch and sometimes it will itch in a way you'll never forget.
