I'm a writer and -must confess- hypocondriac who loves to write about anything        medically-related. More knowledge helps me better cope with my fears. Please acknowledge that I am not in the medical field, just an avid researcher so I am not qualified to give medical advice. My only medical background is having worked as a certified pharmacy technician and being medical office asistant certified. I am also a dog lover and have owned many dogs who are the joy of my life.
