If you still have trouble falling or staying asleep, a visit with your health care provider is in order. I urge you to forgo taking over-the-counter sleep aids until you’ve met with your physician. He or she may recommend over-the-counter sleep aids such as the supplement melatonin, over the counter antihistamines or a prescription medication such as one of the many available benzodiazepines or other hypnotic agents such as Ambien or Lunesta. Precautions should be taken with sleep aids as some have been known to cause unwanted side effects such as nighttime eating and/or sleep walking. In addition, prescription sleep aids are not to be used for long periods of time.

I began to feel like I was no longer a person – I was simply a caretaker and milk giver. By the time Mia was six months old I didn’t enjoy anything in my life, I felt a depth of rage that i had never experienced and i had a mind full of twisted, scattered thoughts.

To join the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Medicare Part D) you must choose one Prescription Drug Plan from dozens of plans that are available (there are up to 50 plans in some states). Once you have chosen a plan you are “locked-in” until the enrollment period the following year.

This means that the survival rate does not look so great when it comes to lung cancer. According to the Department of health and human services, lung cancer accounted for more deaths than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer combined in 2005. Lung cancer statistics show that, in that year, 107,416 men and 89,271 women were diagnosed with lung cancer. Also in that year, 90,139 men and 69,078 women died from lung cancer. (Also, note that you should use caution when comparing incidence and death counts.) However, despite these numbers, some people actually are cured of lung cancer.

Living for the moment with no regard for the future is dangerous business. As the old expression goes, “If you fail to plan you plan to fail.” You may counter with, “But we are not guaranteed tomorrow” or “you can’t know what tomorrow brings.” I would have to agree with your response. But you can have an infinitely greater chance of success if you seek an intentional outcome.
