Childhood trauma leads to lifelong chronic illness — so why isn’t the medical community helping patients?

ACEs Too High

ADonnaDadWhen I was twelve, I was coming home from swimming at my neighbor’s dock when I saw an ambulance’s flashing lights in our driveway. I still remember the asphalt burning my feet as I stood, paralyzed, and watched the paramedics take away my father. It was as if I knew those flashing lights were a harbinger that my childhood was over.

At the hospital, a surgeon performed “minor” elective bowel surgery on my young dad. The surgeon made an error, and instead of my father coming home to the “welcome home” banners we’d painted, he died.

The medical care system failed my father miserably. Then the medical care system began to fail me.

Life is beautiful. Never allow others to gain power over your temporary struggles. When you change, things change. Think of all the things you can do differently, change your attitude, behavior, actions, words. You have to do things with a positive attitude and intentionally to attract the right people and situations! To do so write down your goals and the actions you need to take to get to those goals! Stop indulging negative thoughts and feelings. Madeleine Pujals Maya

James Michael Sama

Do you remember the first few months of your relationship? When the sparks were flying and you couldn’t keep your hands off of each other? But now, you find yourself going through the motions, no longer as excited as you were to see him/her, seemingly just passing time.


It doesn’t have to be that way.

Obviously, there are many reasons that some relationships fade over time, but one reason is often prevalent:


Comfort, I’ve always said, is the enemy of progress. It is also the enemy of romance.

Don’t get me wrong, being comfortable with someone is the very foundation of a healthy relationship, especially for women. If a woman feels uncomfortable around you, it doesn’t matter if you’re Channing Tatum, she’ll be running the other way.
