In this last segment on my knee replacement surgery, I am going to describe the process by which I believe I significantly expedited the healing of the surgical scar.Continue reading
So, day three after surgery was not as easy as days one and two. Primarily because I had a splitting headache. This is apparently a common phenomenon post surgically.

If anyone would like to share their secret for peeling hard boiled eggs, I would love to know. I have some theories and I’m willing to share them of course, but I really think it depends on the egg!

We use the word “binge” very casually in our society. We “binge” watch episodes of our favorite shows on DVR or Netflix. We “binge” listen to podcasts. Most of us probably “binged” on Star Wars movies before.
But when is bingeing on food actually Binge Eating Disorder?
Consider a time when you thought you were bingeing and ask yourself the following questions:
*. Did you consume an abnormally large amount of food in a short period of time as compared with what others might eat in the same amount of time under similar circumstances?
*. Did you experience a loss of control over eating during these episodes?Do you consume food faster than normal?
*. Do you feel fuller than usual?
*. Are you consuming large amounts of food when not hungry?
*. Are you consuming food alone due to embarrassment over the amount of food you are eating?
*. Do you feel disgusting, guilty or depressed after the binge?
*. Do you feel distressed about the binge?
Finally, think about your behavior over a period of time.
Has the binge eating occurred at least once a week for 3 months?
