Health Sense

For a busy mom like me, working 12 hours a day, every minute counts. At my age I have come to a point that I need to prioritize my activities for the day. I hate traffic and queuing because I believe those times are wasted. Sometimes I wish I am a senior citizen who enjoys discounts and always the priority when it comes to service.

One of the trend in today’s way of life is  buying online, products from food to books can be delivered right at your doorstep. Our family is fond patronizing online shopping. This saves time  and effort and most specially discounts are available. Aside from groceries , the drugstore or pharmacy is one of the place I frequent for our essential medicines needs.

When was the first time you learn about how your body works? At what age were you able to know the answers to the following questions : Why am I menstruating ?  Why am I perspiring a lot and I don’t smell good ? How do girls get pregnant? Mom and Dad didn’t say anything about these things. Where do I get to know these things?

Sex education. Lets talk about it.
