He was only 2 years old but had the mentality of a 4 years old, when he splashed into the water with his chest hitting first, I thought oh God is he ok? Parents asking him if he was ok, he quickly shook it off without shedding a single tear, replying I’m okay as he directed them to toss him again, he was ready.

Unless you feel that it’s an emergency, avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital. An emergency is a life-threatening situation in which you feel you may not live another day.

Most shampoos are filled with sulfates that strip the oils needed for healthier hair and most people shampoo their hair on a daily basis and without using a conditioner. When shampooing the hair, only lather up the scalp and allow the suds to slide down the hair to remove the dirt and build up on the hair.

Blood Clots

Blood clots were passed after my friends’ menstrual cycle had ended and she was terrified. The day after her menstrual cycle had ended and no signs of blood, suddenly she began passing large blood clots, size of a golf ball and passed several before conferring with her doctor.
