    I made the mistake of scheduling two doctors’ appointments on the same day. It happened because I had to go back for a follow up with my gynecologist for the lichen schlerosus. I scheduled that for after work, but didn’t realize at the time that I also had a mid-day appointment with my oncologist. I figured it would all be fine, although my oncologist is notoriously (and ridiculously) late every appointment. As it turns out, both doctors were really behind schedule and I spent 3 hours and 20 minutes just sitting — either in a waiting room or the exam room. Both…

    In this busy and often impersonal modern age in which we live, it seems like acts of kindness are rare. It’s sad, but true. No, I’m not saying that people are insensitive or cruel, but in our defense, we’re all so busy and often never see the face of someone we interact with or how our curt, surly or impatient act lands on the recipient (think driving or telephone customer service agents)! Between work and kids, obligatory events, the internet and machines that take the place of humans (like ATMs, self-service gas and grocery checkout), time is precious; and moments of personal…

  • Last ever period...

    Me
    27 Aug 2015 | 4:51 am
    This morning I got my last ever period. I’m 41. I know this for sure, because I’m getting my first Zoladex injection on Monday to stop my ovaries from working. And if I find I can’t tolerate the monthly injections, they are going to surgically remove my ovaries. Snip, snap, gone. Well, maybe not quite as easy as that, but you get the jist… How do I feel? – I don’t know. I guess I’m lucky, because I’ve had my kids, and I don’t want any more. Less lucky because I had breast cancer and cervical surgery for abnormal cells; lucky because we…
  • Change of Life, Change of Personality

    I frequently get this question, for which I’ve had no convincing data to respond: Do personality trait levels change as the result of menopause? I’ve decided to look for an answer. In a recent survey of the published research literature, I found no information. So, in lieu of answers from the known literature, I turned to my database. The U.S. norm group for our WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ personality assessment contains a balanced sample of 1,200 working adults. A detailed description of this norm group is available in our professional manual (available by ordering from…
  • Is Addyi The Miracle Sex Drug For Black Women?

    A new drug aimed to help women who’ve lost their sex drive was recently green lighted by the FDA earlier this month. Addyi (flibanserin), which has been coined ‘the female Viagra’ is reported to help with the prevention of HSDD in premenopausal woman. HSDD is a relatively new term developed to describe Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, a condition where the woman is otherwise healthy but lacking libido, or has a lack of sexual desire that is not due to a co-existing medical or psychiatric condition, problems within the relationship or the effects of a medication or other drug…

  • Health Awareness Fatigue? 3 Ways to Reconnect

    Tammy
    24 Aug 2015 | 4:00 pm
    The month of August holds the distinction of several awareness campaigns, Psoriasis Awareness being one. Next month staggers under the weight of 10. And that doesn’t include the ones without “awareness” in the title. What’s with all the awareness campaigns? It might feel like every week there’s a different awareness popping up, one more disease or sickness to recognize. It’s so easy to brush it off because we’ve become desensitized to the rapidly piling lists of problems we have in this world, from Sepsis Awareness (September) to Breast Cancer…
  • New Advances in Rosacea

    In the last year, two new advances in our treatment and understanding of rosacea have occurred that I am excited to share. For those of us who have spent our professional lifetime treating rosacea, it’s really satisfying to see pieces of the enigmatic rosacea puzzle come together. Genetics The first exciting rosacea puzzle piece is in genetics and is thanks to the new frontier of genetic mapping. Dermatologists and rosacea patients have long observed that rosacea-prone skin runs in families. Now, researchers at Stanford, working with the genetics company called 23andMe have substantiated…
  • What NOT to Say to Someone Going through Menopause

    I love the topic of menopause even though I have a personal love-hate relationship with it. I’m a post-menopausal dermatologist who has been blessed with the pleasure of enjoying the descending hormone ride twice, the first with my own natural menopause and the second with a surgical encore thanks to my BRCA gene mutation revelation at 55 . Recently, I was asked about what to say and what not to say to a woman going through menopause. Oh my! Where do I even start? Get ready, because this is going to be fun, readers! I have my own experiences, and I also stand by with many thousands of…
