My Lupus Story (World Lupus Day)

   In April of 2015 I was diagnosed with a “Lupus like disease”. Which means my doctor thinks I have Lupus but I don’t have enough symptoms to receive a proper diagnosis. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, heart and other organs inside the body). Normally your immune system produces antibodies which fight off invaders like the flu, virus, and other bacteria. When you have an autoimmune disease like Lupus your immune system produces autoantibodies which can’t tell the difference between virus and your healthy tissues. So basically your body is attacking itself. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.

Organic Tampons VS. Regular Tampons

   For the last few months I’ve wanted to try organic tampons because regular tampons are not good for your yoni (vagina). Regular tampons are bleached with chlorine which leads to a toxic byproduct called dioxin, which is linked to cancer. In the late 1970s and early 1980s there were a lot of ladies dying from Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), which is caused by toxins used to increase absorbency, which is why they put warning labels on tampons now. I don’t know about you but I don’t know if I want to stick something in me that warns me that I  might get sick and die from it.

  One thing I was iffy about was the absorbency of the organic tampons. I searched online for articles or videos about organic absorbency vs regular but I couldn’t find any so I went out to the store and brought a pack of organic tampons to try out myself.

Mini Review Of "No Good Deed" Staring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson

Last Thursday I was invited to an early screening of “No Good Deed” staring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson and it was good. The movie starts off with Idris’s character Collin breaking out of jail which he was in for murder. He gets into a accident and ends up a Taraji’s character Terri’s house. She gives him the phone to call for help and then she invites this fool into her house. You can tell Terri was feeling Collin. He was giving her complements that her husband wasn’t. She ended up telling Collin that her husband went camping, I think she thought she was going to have a little one night stand with Collin once she put her kids to bed but Collin had another idea.

 I don’t want to give to much a way but the movie will be out September 12th. Ladies this is the perfect movies to see with your girls, you have sexy Idris and then you got Taraji kicking butt. I was jumping and getting nervous for Terri lol. Every time they showed Idris I was thinking “He is so fine but he’s crazy” lol. I will most definitely go see this movie again. If you haven’t seen the trailer for it you can check it out after the jump.
