Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**E-Training Tuberculosis

I always have about 20 e-trainings to do each year.  I also have to get checked door TB annually, and got my poke yesterday, to be read tomorrow.  Risk of Tb is greater for those from countries with high tuberculosis, those with low resistance, and for those in close contact with others, such as in group settings or in jail.  Regular checks are important for these people.  Also of importance is the rapid increase in treatment-resistive tuberculosis.  For this reason it is important to verify that people take their medication.
