World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.

During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks people around the world to take the Purple Pledge and use their brains to fight Alzheimer’s disease. My grandmother passed from this dreaded disease. This impacts families all over the world and there needs to be a cure.

I must need the rest or something because I took some pretty long naps yesterday and today. Resting on the weekends is a great thing because it does help you for the week ahead but there is so much you wanna do other than sleep but your body says differently. The stress of the week before can really impact your weekend activities. Waking up from a nap is hard because you are comfy and cozy. Resetting for the week ahead can be a good thing to help one cope with the stress that lies ahead. One thing you should never do is apologize for taking care of yourself in this way
The flu bug has gotten bad where I live. So bad that schools have used some of their built-in snow days and cancelled classes so the children and staff can get better. Everyone loves a day off but this is not the way many wanted it to come about. Several people I work with were scrambling to find child care options for tomorrow as our local school system has also called off school for Friday. I got a flu shot in November. I can’t remember the last time I had it. Those who got the bug are sitting at home trying to get well.
Here’s a graphic that shows the difference between the common cold and the flu. Stay healthy my friends.
