I have only one New Year’s Resolution for 2010 and that is:Read More
Addiction Treatment is not an easy process. A person who submits himself to a drug rehab will find himself in a long and painful process of healing his addiction. Sometimes it will be hard to see the light at the end of a tunnel. Sometimes they declare themselves healed from their addiction only to backslide and find themselves at step one again. Drug Treatment, nevertheless, is not something unattainable. The best way is to seek professional help. Like any disease that needs medical treatment, drug addicts need a professional and sometimes medical care to be healed from their addiction.
The first step is always the hardest to make and that is to admit that they need help. It’s hard to face the unpleasant reality and admit that they have a serious problem. Many drug addicts fail to do the first but most vital step. They believe that they can cure their addiction themselves and stubbornly hold onto that belief. Sadly, that can be the difference between life and death.
You can make a difference and help a person with that kind of problem but the first step is spotting a person with a problem. Here are some of the signs that a person might have a drug addiction problem.
* Bloodshot eyes
* Not normal behaviour
* Always disappearing for long periods of time
* Problems with work or school
* Excessive shaking or tremors
* Sudden weight loss or weight gain
* Avoidance of social situations
* Changes in clothing such as wearing long sleeves to hide injection marks
* Spacey or unintelligible conversation
It’s definitely not easy to determine if someone you know is taking drugs but once you do you might be able to save that person’s life.
This is what I want for New Year!
Just look at my pathetic blog. It’s no coincidence that it’s so simple. Look at the header and its white background color. Isn’t it the plainest header you have ever seen? Yes, you guessed it right. I don’t know anything about designing my blog.
That’s why when saw Gisele’s blog I just drooled over it. Come on take a peek. Okay, you can close your mouth now.
Isn’t that the most beautiful template you have ever seen? It’s colorful, vibrant, and just plain gorgeous!

Santa – er, Daddy has been generous to our little one this Christmas.Read More
We were everywhere last Christmas! First stop was at my Dad’s house in Caloocan. Z had a fun time playing with my younger brother. They’re of the same age bracket so they pretty much enjoyed each other’s company. Next stop was to visit our relatives (on my Dad’s side) at Malolos, Bulacan. Need I say that the food was delicious! I think I went back to the buffet table three times! Too bad my Dad got sick so we had to cut our trip short. He had a motorcycle accident the day before. It was nothing serious just some minor bruises but it was enough for him to call it a day. I hope he gets well soon!
Going home, it was S’s first time to drive in NLEX. Yipee, more driving experience for my hubby means less screaming time for him. haha He’s getting better and better at driving. Thank God!
Our celebration might have prematurely ended at my Dad’s side but for us, the fun was just beginning. Christmas day was also S’s lola’s birthday so we headed to Bicutan for the party in honor of her. We had such great fun there. There was the usual stuff – greeting the birthday celebrant, eating plus they added some really entertaining comedy stuff which made us laugh so hard our stomach ached from laughing. Oh, we wanted to stay there until the very end but poor S had to work that Christmas night so we had to say adios before the party ended.
To say we were tired was an understatement but then I heard my husband say it was his happiest Christmas ever. I guess it was all worth it, wasn’t it. I’m so happy too!
