No More Expensive Eyeglasses

About 5 months ago I have to check my eyes, since things are more blur than before. Than the eye-check resulted that I have to change my eyeglasses, I can't use my old eyeglasses anymore. Hmm.. New eyeglasses means more money to spend. The good lenses and frames are not cheap. And at that time I spent almost 120 USD, only for a simple pair of eyeglasses.

Recently I ran into a website that writes about cheap eyeglasses. Eric's Review of Zenni Optical made me realize that there's out there that sells eyeglasses below than USD 50! So cheap!

Then I went to the website, it is a reality. Zenni Optical sells pairs of eyeglasses in different ranges of price. You can get a pair of eyeglasses only for USD 8 for the cheapest price. Here you can get the lowest price progressive glasses ever! You also can choose the material of the eyeglasses' frame, depends on your choice. Zenni Optical is the #1 online Rx glasses store.

Getting Involved with Insomnia

insomniaInsomnia is a part of sleeping disorders. Insomnia is a symptom which can accompany several sleep, medical and psychiatric disorders, characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep despite the opportunity. Insomnia is typically followed by functional impairment while awake. Both organic and non-organic insomnia without other cause constitute a sleep disorder, primary insomnia. One definition of insomnia is "difficulties initiating and/or maintaining sleep, or nonrestorative sleep, associated with impairments of daytime functioning or marked distress for more than 1 month."

Living with a lack of sleep feels like being punished for something we have no control over. Insomnia creates a life for its sufferers in which it seems like they are living out their days in a complete haze. With people coming and going, and not remembering what you just talked about. It’s like having your life pass you by in conversation. Your life moves along as you stand still. Dealing with everyday pressures without the energy sleep provides, is like fighting a battle that was lost before it even began.

Insomnia is a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis or a disease. By definition, insomnia is "difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both" and it may be due to inadequate quality or quantity of sleep. Insomnia is not defined by a specific number of hours of sleep that one gets, since individuals vary widely in their sleep needs and practices. Although most of us know what insomnia is and how we feel and perform after one or more sleepless nights, few seek medical advice. Many people remain unaware of the behavioral and medical options available to treat insomnia.

Insomnia affects all age groups. Among adults, insomnia affects women more often than men. The incidence tends to increase with age. It is typically more common in people in lower socioeconomic (income) groups, chronic alcoholics, and mental health patients. Stress most commonly triggers short-term or acute insomnia. If you do not address your insomnia, however, it may develop into chronic insomnia.
Cosmetic Surgery Can Fix Scars

cosmetic surgeryYou will come across many cases where people have undergone one or the other cosmetic surgery. A cosmetic surgery is an actual surgery that doesn't include cosmetic procedures like wrinkle filling injection or others.

Apart from many people undergo reconstructive surgery as well. This type of surgery is meant to repair damaged or malformed tissues, bones or organs. It is often difficult to separate a cosmetic surgery with a reconstructive surgery. This is because in the case of a traumatic situation, has to undergo both cosmetic as well as reconstructive surgery at the same time.

Aesthetic surgery involves techniques intended for the "enhancement" of appearance through surgical and medical techniques, and is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal.

If a person has broken his bones of the face and his nose in a road accident, then with the help of an orthopaedic surgeon his/ her damaged body parts can be fixed and the person will be able to perform his/ her regular task once again.

I knew a woman who considered her lovely daughter's cleft palate plastic surgery unsuccessful. No one but the mother "saw" the residual damage on her daughter's face, the scars of surgical intervention as well as the traces of the original defect. Living inside her mother's vision of her, the daughter, too, saw herself as materially damaged. Where did her damage come from, and was it internal or external? Why was the mother blind to her daughter's beauty?

"The initial feeling of the mother is guilt." Perhaps the mother of a congenitally deformed child took medication or smoked or drank. But these are just ways of attributing concrete causes to what is psychically more elusive. Isn't it the sense that some secret defect has reached the light of day through one's child?

About Web Directory Again

What is a Web directory? Although the terms search engine and subject directory are sometimes used interchangeably, they are not the same thing.

A Web directory organizes Web sites by subject, and is usually maintained by humans instead of software. The searcher looks at sites organized in a series of categories and menus. Web directories are usually much smaller than search engines' databases, since the sites are looked at by human eyes instead of by spiders.

There are two ways for sites to be included in a Web directory's listings; either the site owner can submit the site to the web directory, or the directory's editor(s) will eventually come across that site.

Most of the directories are very general in scope and list websites across a wide range of categories, regions and languages. But there are also some niche directories which focus on restricted regions, single languages, or specialist sectors. One type of niche directory with a large number of sites in existence, is the shopping directory for example. Shopping directories specialize in the listing of retail e-commerce sites.

Yahoo Directory has one of the best web directories on the web, along with its own search engine listings and many other search services. The Open Directory has been around since 1999, and is a human-edited directory. Also known as DMOZ (Directory Mozilla), the Open Directory Project purports to be the largest on the Web, constructed and maintained by a vast, global community of volunteer editors.

By the way, I just submit a good website to one of the web directories on the web. The website is about Family Dental Health Center in Idaho Falls, US. Family Dental Health Center have a tag line about them: "Let us bring out the smile in you". The dentists are Galen J. Staley, D.D.S., Bryce A. Burtenshaw, D.D.S., and T. Brook Summers, D.D.S.

The dentists at Family Dental Health Center can now correct a wide variety of so-called "permanent" dental problems, such as missing teeth, gaps between teeth, general bite dysfunction, chipped, cracked or worn teeth, unsightly, stained, or washed-out fillings, permanently stained or discolored teeth, crooked or crowded teeth.

Today's advanced techniques and materials can make a real difference. And the skill, experience and commitment of the Family Dental Health Center, using a unique combination of science and artistry, which is can literally redesign your smile. Even a subtle change in your smile helps you to project an image of self-confidence and high personal esteem. When you feel good about yourself, it shows in your appearance.

The patient's appointment will consist of a consultation explaining the diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Patients may pre-register with the Family Dental Health Center by using the secure online Patient Registration Form. This will save the patients time when he or she come in to the office for the first visit.

The Effects of Stress

Stress is a term in psychology and biology, first coined in the 1930s, which has in more recent decades become a commonplace of popular parlance. It refers to the consequence of the failure of an organism – human or animal – to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats, whether actual or imagined.

Stress symptoms commonly include a state of alarm and adrenaline production, short-term resistance as a coping mechanism, and exhaustion, as well as irritability, muscular tension, inability to concentrate and a variety of physiological reactions such as headache and elevated heart rate.

The problems become larger, when negative effects of stress starts to take hold, just right before the person realize about this.

Signs of stress may be cognitive, emotional, physical or behavioral. Signs include poor judgment, a general negative outlook, excessive worrying, moodiness, irritability, agitation, inability to relax, feeling lonely, isolated or depressed, aches and pains, diarrhea or constipation, nausea, dizziness, chest pain, rapid heartbeat, eating too much or not enough, sleeping too much or not enough, social withdrawal, procrastination or neglect of responsibilities, increased alcohol, nicotine or drug consumption, and nervous habits such as pacing about or nail-biting.

Stress can significantly affect many of the body's immune systems, as can an individual's perceptions of, and reactions to, stress. The term psychoneuroimmunology is used to describe the interactions between the mental state, nervous and immune systems, as well as research on the interconnections of these systems. Immune system changes can create more vulnerability to infection, and have been observed to increase the potential for an outbreak of psoriasis for people with that skin disorder.

Chronic stress has also been shown to impair developmental growth in children by lowering the pituitary gland's production of growth hormone, as in children associated with a home environment involving serious marital discord, alcoholism, or child abuse.

In summary, distress can have a number of negative effects. These range from minor problems, such as fatigue, insomnia and irritability, to full-blown depression. Some consequences, such as poorer concentration, forgetfulness, mental blocks and lowered attention span, negative behaviours, may also be cognitive. Other effects of stress can include greater risk of accidents, alcohol and drug abuse and explosive temper losses. Increased occupational stress may also have an impact on marital relationships. In some cases, sustained exposure to high levels of distress can lead to complete psychological burnout. In a few extreme cases, severe distress can eventually kill people.

Nobody Dies From AIDS Directly

Yes, nobody dies from AIDS directly. People do not die of AIDS. In fact, AIDS weakens the immune system so that other diseases particularly pneumonia can kill the infected person. The AIDS retrovirus goes straight for the central nervous system, as well as the lungs, and it attacks the brain, causing AIDS virus encephalopathy also known as dementia.

Most people infected with HIV eventually develop AIDS. These individuals mostly die from opportunistic infections or malignancies associated with the progressive failure of the immune system. HIV progresses to AIDS at a variable rate affected by viral, host, and environmental factors; HIV-specific treatment delays this process. Most will progress to AIDS within 10 years of HIV infection: some will have progressed much sooner, and some will take much longer. Treatment with antiretrovirals increases the life expectancy of people infected with HIV. Even after HIV has progressed to diagnosable AIDS, the average survival time with antiretroviral therapy was estimated to be more than 5 years as of 2005. Without antiretroviral therapy, someone who has AIDS typically dies within a year.

There are three clearly definable stages of AIDS infection. Stage one is the Asymptomatic Carrier Stage. The person may look well and feel well. No sign of AIDS is detected. Stage two begins with sudden drenching night sweats, persistent diarrhea, chronic fatigue, severe weight loss, candida and psychogenic disorder. These are called Aids Related Complex (ARC) or the pre-AIDS syndrome. The virus has now settled in the brain, kidneys, lungs, liver even the eyes and multiplied until its dread presence can no longer be hidden. All AIDS-Related Complex (ARC) diseases are described as "opportunistic."

What makes AIDS such a lethal epidemic is that stage one, the asymptomatic stage, can last for years five years and more is not uncommon. Such persons appear to be in good health, and even remain in good health for varying periods. With nobody sensing danger, they may infect any of their friends or family or even strangers because their body begins "shedding" the AIDS virus through bodily secretions, including sweat and tears.

In this time, we should be wise about the way we live and stay healthy :)

New Year's Reflections Looking back on the months gone by, As a new year starts and an old one ends, We contemplate what brought us joy, And we think of our loved ones and our friends. Recalling all the happy times, Remembering how they enriched our lives, We reflect upon who really counts, As the fresh and bright new year arrives. And when I ponder those who do, I immediately think of you. Thanks for being one of the reasons I’ll have a Happy New Year!
