It can be hard to watch you mother be in continual pain. She has been kept from thoroughly enjoying life. There are several gynecological illnesses that can be debilitating. Women tend to endure illnesses and not even talk to their doctors about them. So often they are more concerned about taking care of their families, ignoring their own health in the meantime.
Instead of suffering with an ailment, consult your doctor. The doctor can recommend a procedure to eliminate the gnawing pain. Now that the surgery to correct that medical condition is behind her it is your hope to ease her back into a joyful existence again. She can be on the verge of beginning a new lifestyle, one completely free of pain. Some examples of illnesses requiring surgery that can change your life are fibroid tumor removal, novasure endometrial ablation, or pubovaginal slings.
Removing fibroid tumors can end the daily pain and abnormal menstrual periods they can cause. This leads to being able to enjoy socializing with friends without frequent trips to the restroom or popping ibuprofen. In the meantime, you will be there to help her recover. Encourage her to ignore the condition of the house because you will take care of the cooking and dishes. Make sure she gets the adequate rest needed for recovery.
For those whose heavy periods cause you to stay close to home the first several days of your menstrual cycle in fear of leaking blood out on your favorite clothes, then your lifestyle will definitely change with this procedure. This can mean such a difference in your life. Once the doctor inserts the triangular mesh for just 90 seconds or radio frequency and then retrieves it, you can look forward to normal periods. She must make sure she is done having children, as it definitely interferes with fertility. Since those heavy periods caused her to stay close to home the first several days of your menstrual cycle in fear of leaking out on her favorite clothes, lifestyle changes will occur.
Stress incontinence. It is common for women to suffer in silent embarrassment from urine leakage with every laugh or sneeze. Rather than talk to their doctor about it, they just wear sanitary napkins and cringe each time they leak. Who can enjoy life when each time they blow their nose, laugh at a joke, or cough, they know this will happen? Once the surgeon surgically inserts a pubovaginal sling, all that discomfort and embarrassment can disappear. She can get back to living life as it was meant to be lived.
Now that Mom is back on track you can look forward to those trips to the mall. Taking her out to eat at her favorite restaurant can show gratitude for all the meals she prepared during your childhood. Sitting through a movie or a play will no longer be a burden. It will be heartwarming to get your old Mom back, the one who taught you how to live. Now you can return the favor.
It’s that time of year again- time to spoil mom rotten! Mother’s Day only comes around once a year, and it’s always important to live it up, and show dear old mom just how much she means to you. While it’s May now, winter will be here before you know it. Last time around, mom was complaining about how chilly she was in her home. It’s an old home, and heat is constantly escaping from it. While renovating her home, or installing a new heating system isn’t exactly in your budget currently, there is one thing you could get her that would completely brighten her day, and have her prepared for when December rears its ugly head.
If you’re looking for just the right gift for her on Mother’s Day, one that she’ll look forward to using throughout the year, get her a mattress quilt. They come in a shapes, sizes, and designs across a wide range of prices- one of which will surely match your budget and her sensibilities perfectly. And what’s even better is the mattress quit isn’t just for winter- any time it gets a little chilly, you can easily drape the quilt over your bed to give it just that perfect, extra little bit of warmth to keep you cozy through the night, or even if you are just taking a nap.
For that matter, a mattress quilt isn’t something that has to be limited to just the bedroom. If you’re the type to lounge around on the couch, marathoning your favorite tv shows, a mattress quilt fits comfortably on couches and chairs, and makes for a perfect binge watching companion- the only other things you’ll need are the remote, the dvds, and a big old bucket of popcorn, along with your favorite drink. The quilt will keep mom warm, and also serve as a constant reminder of just how much you think and care about her.
If money is an issue, don’t worry about not being able to throw tons of it around on Mother’s Day. Just spending time with her is all she really wants to begin with, and as long as you can afford it, the quilt will put a smile on her face, and keep her warm whenever she gets chilly. Make this her special day- one that she’ll remember warmly for years to come.
“How did that dent get in your Father’s car?” Words no teenager ever wants to hear, especially if they just got back with the family car. You better hope that nobody saw you and you particularly better hope that you didn’t get a ticket.
Truth be told, your mother can check just about anything these days by confiscating your computer. (And you thought that CSI course she took was for a job opportunity.) Mom can even test your urine for illegal substances with a kit purchased at the local drugstore. Don’t bother lying to mom about what might’ve happened last time you borrowed the car either. All she has to do is open up Google, Safari, Bing or her favorite search engine and type in the words ‘How To Get Your Driving Record’ and she will be bombarded by page after page of services that will allow her to check not only your driving record but your credit score, your criminal record, your work history and more.
Surely your parents already gave you the whole lecture about driving being a very big responsibility, but did you listen? Take a look at some of the public service videos online these days – many can be found at YouTube – that have to do with inattentive driving due to cell phone usage or texting. They are a sight to behold and very graphic in nature. Don’t be surprised if you get pulled over for texting or talking on that phone kids because, in more places than not, it is illegal. And, for very good reason. Drunk drivers may be responsible for the death of many an innocent mother, grandmother, father, sister, brother, even babies and pets but teenagers that are texting or chatting while driving are just as dangerous – sometimes more.
If someone killed your best friend because they were being stupid behind the wheel you would be angry, sad, frustrated – all sorts of emotions would run through you and you would undoubtedly blame that person for your friend’s death. Sadly enough however, it can happen to you, too. Pay attention behind the wheel – don’t let your Mom find out you’ve been irresponsible while driving. Make sure it never happens.
In between working a full time job, and spending time with you and your Dad, your Mom has a small business on the side that she’s been running for a few years now. It’s nothing major- sure, it brings in some money, but not enough to live off of. As she inches closer to retirement, she’s begun thinking about taking her small business more seriously, and expanding out towards a wider market. To get those extra customers, she’s going to need all the help she can get. There’s a few different routes she can go, but two of the wisest are a new business logo, and investing in business promotional items she can give out both clients and customers alike.
When a small business is first getting off the ground, it’s understandable they may not have the resources- financial or otherwise- to invest in an expensive, highly polished logo. If you’re going to make a serious go of it, however, at some point- the earlier, the better- you’re going to have to invest in a logo that’s highly polished, eye catching, and visually pleasing, along with easily getting across what your business is. Doing so will not only show clients, customers, and investors that you take your business and the industry it operates within seriously, but you also take them seriously as well.
When it comes to promotional products for your company, it’s important to keep in mind the public tone and appearance you want your company to have, as well as offering products that are actually useful, functional, and desirable. Also, it’s a smart idea to keep in mind that the product should be at least somewhat related to your service or product. For example, if you deal in software or hardware, consider mass producing usb drives with your logo and company info printed on them. To go the extra mile, maybe you could have a jpeg file on the drive itself that’s a first time visit or purchase coupon that offers a discount.
So, once your Mom has all of these things set in place, all that’s really left is the hard part of the equation. She’s got to work harder than she ever did before she retired. She’s got to network. She’s got to advertise. She’s got to get the ball rolling, and get her company name out there, and spreading via word of mouth.
While this may all seem like a lot of effort- and it is- if she can keep all of those plates spinning, eventually she’ll have herself a company that is generating more income for her personally than she ever received, when she was working for someone else. That’s the reward of being self employed, and owning your own business.
