Thursday Thoughts ~ November 14, 2013

Ramblings of a Suburban Mom's Thursday Thoughts. I really love her blog. If you're looking for the 101 on subscription boxes definitely check out her out. She's has a Monthly Subscription Box List that you should definitely check out!

What TV shows am I watching? Well, lets just say this. I don't watch much actual TV. And when I do, it's usually syndicated programming. (Law & Order, Big Bang Theory) Most of the time, I'll watch "The Good Wife", "Coronation Street" and "Wendy Williams: After Show" online. (Hulu, YouTube)

Check out that 5 pound of baking soda on our laundry room shelf! We use baking soda, in so many ways, around the house. And I love it in the wash. It's also great for stinky armpits, in hubby and son's work shirts! I found this big bucket at our local, Smart N Final.

100 million American adults live with chronic pain. That's more than cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined. According to the Institute of Medicine, the high prevalence of chronic pain suggests that the condition is not being adequately managed. Undertreatment of chronic pain creates large costs to the healthcare system and the U.S. economy; we spend more than $560 billion in the U.S. each year on chronic pain-related healthcare costs. Moreover, chronic pain can carry significant physical and emotional burdens. And I am one of them.

Please check out Pain Matters, on Discovery Channel, November 16, Saturday. The documentary will be exploring what chronic pain is, its individual and societal impact, and the future of pain management through the stories and struggles of individuals living with chronic pain, their loved ones, as well as perspective from leading national experts in pain management.
