    How I Avoided Prednisone Withdrawal And Its Side Effects

    in Health

    A crazy thing happened to me last month. I ran out of prednisone and had to stop taking it, cold turkey.


    Many of you know that you don't just go off prednisone cold like that. You're supposed to wean yourself slowly, or risk serious withdrawal symptoms.


    In prednisone withdrawal, you can experience fatigue, flu-like symptoms, mood dips, inflammation and swelling, among other symptoms. 


    All of these symptoms flare up while your body gets used to making its own cortisol again.


    Some quick background info on me: Seventeen years ago my diagnosis was autoimmune disease. Over the years, my symptoms have included rheumatoid arthritis in every joint of my body including my neck and rib cage, along with brain and nervous system symptoms, skin rashes, hormone imbalances, etc. Some doctors have told me that my autoimmune disease was triggered by lyme disease, and is now considered chronic lyme disease. 


    It's complicated, I know. What else is new? 


    So anyway, back to the prednisone. I was almost off of it, finally, after using it for a flare in symptoms that I experienced this past winter. 


    I ran out on a Friday. I thought I had another full bottle in the bathroom cabinet somewhere. But I could not find it anywhere! My prescription didn't have any refills and my doctor's office wouldn't be open until Monday.


    I freaked out. This meant that my knees and fingers and wrists were going to swell. I was going to get night chills and a sore throat.


    I went into emergency mode and...

    Strengthening the Families: Issues of Life - What Do I Tell My Children?

    in Religion

     


    FRESH MANNA OUR DAILY BREAD


    STRENGTHENING THE FAMILIES:  Apostle Williams is available for Conferences, Seminars and Workshops that will build your ministry or church group.  Our Ministerial Team is comprised of educational and motivational speakers for your church meetings and special events to strengthen members, individuals and families, within the community or church. 


    Her goal is to provide Educational Seminars and resources for victims and families dealing with domestic violence, mental and emotional stress, and substance abuse that weaken the family structure and values.  These seminars are to help improve parenting skills, promote abstinence among our youth, and provide Christian counseling relating to family values and issues.  To strengthen, encourage and motivate men and women. Strengthening the Families Outreach Ministries Programs airs on Tuesdays on Fresh Manna Our Daily Bread Blog Talk Radio.


    Today’s Discussion: Issues of Life-What do I tell my children? There are so many questions that are being asked by our children and young adults regarding the moral standards of our society, in our churches and even within our own family structure that need to be addressed with truth and honesty, yet we shrink away from the responsibility of discussing the issues of life that are affecting us all one way or another.  It’s past time that we have an open discussion and be prepared when you are asked about things that may be unpleasant or controversial.  What do you tell your children?


    Apostle Loretta Williams is also on Facebook, Google + and Linkedin.

    How To Have A Million Dollars By Your 65th Birthday

    in Education

    Dear friends,

    It is painful to tell our true story because we can see the results of this truth all around us.  Even in our own lives and families. Here are 8 mental obstacles we must stand, face and conquer to do more than just survive, so we can thrive. 

    Our community's money story is painful because:
    1. we do not plan for a prosperous future, we hope & pray
    2. we do not seriously implement a plan, we talk about it
    3. we are ignorant due to lack of knowledge
         (we reject the knowledge when offered)
    4. we are unwilling to change and grow to succeed
    5. we value the opinions of those who don't know or care
    6. we've been conditioned - unconsciously taught lack
    7. we let that conditioning cause us to make excuses
    8. we wait until it's too late, from the cradle to the grave

    Here’s an example of AMAZING: You can have $1 million in the bank on your 65th birthday, here’s what you would need to save each month depending on your age when you start.  Together we can create the cash flow to do this. These figures assume an interest rate of 10%.

    25 years old - $160/month
    35 years old - $440/month
    45 years old - $1,317/month
    55 years old - $4,822/month
    60 years old - $13,200/month

    Don't wait.  Let's get together to change this story one family at a time starting with you and those you know. Let's do  AMAZING prosperity!


    Best wishes for a prosperous & happy future,

    Robin

    Should Blackmen Marry Single mothers? What is the advantage or disadvantage?

    in Entertainment

    There is a multitude of single black women who are divorced with kids, separated with kids and continue to go through men like a 90% off sale at Macy's.


    Why is it so hard for men to set standards for themselves when it comes to choosing a mate?  Is he molded by society to think he should not have standards


    or is he thinking with the wrong HEAD?


    A womans standard should be to get married first then have children, not have children then look for another man to be Husband and Father. Is that really normal?


    A man should have a standard to say I want to start my own family, not a LAGO family. Should that be his thought?


    What are the real advantages of marrying a single parent from a male perspective or a female perspective?


    What are the real disadvantages of marrying a single parent from a male perspective or a female perspective?


    Are men put at a disadvantage if he marries then have to pay CHILD SUPPORT if it is not his child? 


    Do you think being in someones life as a father figure binds you to take care of the child that is not your biological.


    What are some things men can do to protect themselves from false fatherhood?


    Should you know your blood type and your partners blood type and the babies blood type before you sign the birth certicate.


    Should you make sure the man does not have any other children before you sayy I DO?


    Join me tomorrow at 2pm Central Time and lets find out answers to these questions.
