Love Your Feet

I just talked with my best lady friend of mine. She was in the hospital for infected wound on her foot. The doctor tested her for diabetes because she complained that the wound was not responding to antibiotics.

Several years ago, a friend of my mother convinced me to have a pedicure. I was afraid that she may not be able to get all the ingrown nails and my toes might get infected.

A day after the pedicure, I got pus in my toe.

I like the tattood feet in the picture. It is henna. An Indian friend of mine gave me the henna and also some jewelries for the feet. Another friend cautioned me of using the anklets. He said that there are several kinds of these which tell what kind of a woman is wearing that kind of feet jewelry.

Hair Loss

Androgenic alopecia is the most common cause for hair loss for both men and women.

There are other causes of hair loss.

Alopecia Areata

The hair falls for unknown reason. It does not result to complete baldness--only a smooth patch about the size of a coin.


My mother used to explain the hair loss during pregnancy and childbirth to the baby getting most of the nutrition supposed to be for the mother.

The loss of hair may last up to six months after delivery.

High Fever and`severe infection

The loss of hair is temporary.

Lack of Protein

Diets that limit protein intake may cause hair loss. Not until, the person gets adequate protein will the problem be solved.


There are prescription and over-the-counter medications that may cause falling of hair. These medications include those four gouts, hypertension, depression, arhritis and heart.

Cancer treatments

The person may lose 90 per cent of scalp hair. It is going to grow back when the treatment is over.

Many women are not aware that they are suffering from lack of self-confidence.

It is a question of the women's regard of themselves. Is it confidence or cockiness?

Are you the kind of woman who is obsessed with your faults and mistakes that you hate yourself for them?

Are you the kind of woman who does not take risk?

Are you the kind of woman who define success as achievement only?

Are you kind of a woman who does not voice her opinion?

Are you the kind of a woman who rationalizes for everything that you do?

Are you the kind of woman who avoids challenges?

Then face the mirror and aks yourself if you have self-confidence. I am sure that the woman in the mirror will not able to answer the question.
