With websites lurking on the internet such as seeking arrangement promising women who sign up a windfall of cash from Sugar Daddies who claim they to want to have affairs. Allegedly there are men who want to give a monthly allowance to their Sugar Babby. That’s a bunch of bullshit if you ask me but hey no one did…I am just saying you will be stressed from that nonsense and will need to get a checkup for things beside your teeth if you go that route. I read Midlife crisis| Not just for men, not anymore according to the Washington Post article. Getting ones loins tuned up simply for the sake of a few moments of pleasure is the least of one problem if your mid life crisis is a health scare that could have been avoid with preventive medical care.  I wonder have women thought about their health as I went for my mid year medical routines over the past couple of weeks.

No one has a perfect marriage and no matter how many stories that you read that are spewing “we are happily married.” A picture perfect marriage on the outside is a lot of work that requires both parties to participate to maintain the imperfect union. While your both screaming about who left the toothpaste off…have you both stop to get your yearly checkups? Do you know what is going on inside of your bodies? It was my right foot turning darker that alarmed me into submission this year….I pondered on this thought and realized that I myself has slacked off to get my yearly mammogram….especially when I felt a lump in my breast that did not feel like a lump of fat tissue. Jeez….a lump will have you pick up the phone quick to get it checked out and your praying the entire time that it is only a fluid filled cyst sack….!

When was the last time you had a check up for an mammogram – maybe you just ignore the lumps and flag them off to be a cyst or lumpy breast? Men are not exclude from getting their yearly mammograms either…..I learned about a few programs that may be a useful resource for individuals with minimal income and unemployed. Not getting our physicals every year due to dire strait circumstances is not a good excuse to not take care of our bodies….an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

What I find sad is that a lot of the clinics that serve the community lose their grant funding due to a lack of patronage from individuals who need medical services. Clinics are force to close or decrease their services. The Frederick County Health department lost their grant to help individuals with STD’s. I guess no one was visiting the clinic? Only a few folks in the Frederick County area was least curious about their HIV status? Pregnancy test? Wellness? Nah….guess not! I guess folks are more interest in Free Breast Implants and enlarging their boobs….

The National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC) is the only nonprofit 501c(3) organization whose mission is solely focused on the issues and needs of  the more than 1,200 free clinics and the people they serve in the United States.

“Free clinics are volunteer-based, safety-net health care organizations that provide a range of medical, dental, pharmacy, and/or behavioral health services to economically disadvantaged individuals who are predominately uninsured. Free clinics are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations, or operate as a program component or affiliate of a 501(c)(3) organization. Entities that otherwise meet the above definition, but charge a nominal fee to patients, may still be considered free clinics provided essential services are delivered regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.

Need to find out what that discharge is seeping out your penis or vagina….Plan Parenthood now provides screening for STD’s and a slew of services that keep your genitalia in healthy condition. Even if you don’t have an STD….get your regular wellness checkups simply to have a peace of mind. Be sure to request with your PAP a HPV screening. Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are common viruses that can cause warts. There are more than 100 types of HPV.

Studies have shown that women are eligible to receive the HPV vaccine. Did you know that more than 80% of American women will have contracted at least one strain of HPV by age fifty? If you contract HPV and your a smoker, your body will not be able to fight HPV. Gardasil has been shown to also be effective in preventing genital warts in males, and use for men and boys was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on October 16, 2009. I am phoning the doctor right now to have my young lad vaccinate against HPV

Doctors not strongly encouraging HPV vaccine to girls of certain age

The Howard University College of Dentistry clinics offer an extensive range of dental treatments and oral healthcare services for adults and children.

Some colleges offer reduced medical services to the general public….you will have to be patient as your sent from each department to department. The information is not typically posted openly on a website….I’ll use Howard University as an example.: After getting transferred and being on hold for at least five minutes intervals. I finally was transferred to the dental school department with that offer reduced services. I am looking for a dentist to extract my son’s wisdom teeth at the cheapest amount my money can afford…FREE! A reduced rate would be really nice…. when I had my three wisdom teeth pull many eons ago. Georgetown University dental school extracted all three of my teeth. I was put under with gas and woke up with no pain…I am listing this option to let folks know that you can get dental services too! You get the picture….
