Preventing Rheumatoid Arthritis

I still remember that, at very young age, I started to suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis. I felt some pain at the joints of my knees. At first, I ignored it. I told to myself that I am just tired of walking. But there were times that the joint pain goes back and it's even more painful than the first one. Sometimes, I can't even concentrate on studying my lessons at night because of what is happening. That's the time that I decided to start taking a pain reliever medicine just to reduce the pain. Then one morning, I can't move my leg and I can't get up from the bed. This incident made my mom very nervous and she decided to call her best friend, who is a doctor, to come and see me. Dra. Alipio (that's what I call her), checked my condition and she told that what I am suffering is an illness called RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis). She told that sometimes this illness comes from the genes which is true, because my dad is also having a Rheumatoid Arthritis for a long time already. To treat the pain, Dra. Alipio advised me to take a Celebrex, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. She told me to take Celebrex everytime I can't resist the joint pain.

Having RA gives me the opportunity to know more about it. And based on what I've learned, RA is most frequently experienced particularLy by women more than men. It is believed that the tendency to develop rheumatoid arthritis may be genetically inherited or suspected that certain infections or factors in the environment triggered the activation of the immune system that will lead to RA. I learned also that aside from Celebrex, there are some RA medications like Enbrel, Arencia, Humira, and Remicade that can help in reducing the pain caused by RA. I know that these medicines are very effected like the one that I'm using, Celebrex.

So, to those people who are suffering from RA, I recommend you to... TAKE A MEDICINE, FIGHT RA...MAKE YOUR LIFE LONG AND HEALTHY.

Having a medicare is very important especially if myself or someone in my family are suffering from illness. Because if you are a member you can received a lot of benefits. For example, you can avail to have a discount once you are going to buy a prescribed drugs or medicines, a discount in the payment of hospital bills also in doctor's services, and many more.

So, if ever you don't have yet a Medicare, there is this site that can help you in selecting what kind of medicare plan you are going to choose. Since in this site, they explain the benefits of the different kinds of medicare supplemental plans like Original Medicare Plan, Medicare Advantage Plans, AARP Medicare Drug Plan and many more, which is very important in choosing what kind of plan is best for your needs.

Like Part A (hospital insurance), Part B (medical insurance), Part C (combination of Part A and Part B) and Part D (prescription drug coverage).

I Found A Very Low Interest Credit Card

I am currently using two different kinds of credit cards; one is a credit card which is valid only in my country. It's widely accepted because it adds a low charge for the dealer, it has no additional fee when withdrawing money or paying at the gasoline station, etc. The other credit card can be used, if for example, I am going out of my country. This credit card is very well known. It has a high monthly expenses limit.

I have been using the first one for a very long time and I'm not thinking to change it to other kinds of credit cards because I am very satisfied of it. While the other one, I switched recently. The reason is, I realized that there is a parameter in choosing one or another that can make the difference.

One time, when I am browsing on the web, I came across this site about is a site that gives an opportunity to compare credit cards who offers a better interest rate. Through this site, you could compare, see and choose what kind of credit card do you prefer according to your needs. In fact, I discovered a very low interest credit card in this site which is the reason I switched immediately my other credit card. So, if you are searching and looking for a good and nice credit card, just go and visit

Hot Climate

Here in Italy, we are already experiencing a very hot climate. Maybe because it's sunny day for almost one week. And the wind comes from the south. I even told my husband, that maybe this coming summer, it's much hotter than last year because last April, we didn't felt this hot weather. Since we are not using an airconditioner in the house during summer, I told my husband to buy a ceiling fans which will be put in the bedroom where we are sleeping and also in the living room where there is the computer.

Yesterday, I came across this site about Farreys that sells different kinds of ceiling fans like casablanca ceiling fans , craftmade ceiling fans , ellington ceiling fans , fanimation ceiling fans , hunter ceiling fans , minka aire ceiling fans , modern fan company , monte carlo ceiling fans and many more. They have the best and the latest style of ceiling fans that comes from different brands and best manufacturers. I find their site very interesting and very easy to shop because by just clicking the ceiling fan search and the categories of the style and brand of the fan, you could now see the fan that you need. To assist someone in configuring and ordering the ceiling fans to exact specifications, they have their ceiling fan customization to help you. So, if you are looking for a right place to buy ceiling fans, visit Farreys.

Roaming Around Fabriano And Sassoferato

Usually if it's Holy Week, my husband is working. It's only now that they had their holiday during Holy Friday. So, after eating our lunch we decided to roam around Fabriano and Sassoferato. When we are at Sassoferato, my husband saw that there is a newly opened small Vivaio (a place where to buy ornamental plants, trees and fruit trees). We decided to go inside the vivaio. My husband saw a pear tree which is good during autumn and winter. We bought the tree for £14.00 and we planted it near the house.

Here is the photo of the pear tree.

Shoe Addict

When I was still teaching in the Philippines, one of my favorite hobbies was collecting different kinds of shoes. Sometimes, when me and mom go to the mall, I can't control myself buying a shoes especially if there is a sale and I like the style. Most of the shoes that I had were a Comfort Shoes. Some of them are Name Brands Shoes but there are some wherein the brand is not familiar but the quality is good. Before leaving the Philippines, I gave some of my collections of shoes to people who are very close to me like my friends and co-teachers in the school where I was teaching before.

Now, that I am in Italy, I am still fond of shoes. I'm still a shoe addict. In fact, I have different kinds of shoes which I use in different kinds of climates. For example, at the end of autumn and during winter I used the Ugg Boots that my husband bought me when I arrived. I like using this shoes because they are very comfortable to the feet. During summer, because it's hot I usually use an open sandals. How about you guys, are you a shoe addicts as well?
