Sick with the flu? These tips will help you get the care you need.
3 Ways To Teach Your Man to Be More Nurturing [EXPERT]

Flu season is upon us, and by all accounts its a doozy. Thousands of people are being hit with the flu bug and every woman’s fear is that she will be next. What mom doesn’t worry how she’s going to manage the house, the kids, and work if she’s stuck in bed with a fever and chills? Not to mention that other worry--who wil
Stress can make you physically and emotionally sick. The effects can be worse for the disabled.
Here’s a news flash: stress can make you sick.
Maybe you haven’t gotten the message that stress can have a permanent effect on chronic illness. Clouds your thinking, screws up your judgment. Gives you the weepies and the angries. Can take away your will to vacuum the house or cook a meal. The effects of stress on the mood and memory components of your brain can get screwed up or even shut down.
One would think wedding vows are unambiguous. Straightforward. No subtext, no exceptions. Love is love.
"Not so,” say some men. “If you get really sick or disabled, I’m outta here.”
A study published in the journal Cancer reported that, of the 515 married patients with serious cancer or multiple sclerosis followed over 5 years, the divorce rate was about the same as among the general population, 11.6%. The difference was that women were 6 times more likely to be the ones bei
Can swallowing semen really cure your morning sickness or is this just what men want you to think?

Cold and influenza season is a real problem for romance. Singles can just forget about getting any action, because mucus is gross and bright red noses are only adorable if you're full of booze and only then if you're the former president of Russia.
