  • OMG Dude What Happened? You're Growing Breasts, Nose Hair and Getting Out of Breath!

    Getting old sucks and it's made worse by the fact that no one really prepares you for it.

I thought "getting old" was going to happen to me in my 60's and 70's but now that I've hit 40 I'm wondering what the hell happened to me.

  • Ways Men Can Help Improve the Odds of Conception

    Hey guys, I know we all had health class in high school but too much of the fertility discussion is on women and not ourselves. Sometimes this can feel like we're all alone but trust me - it's more common than you'd think to have something down there that isn't working at maximum efficiency. I know that's a tough thing to admit but sometimes our swimmers can use a bit of a boost too. Even though it is difficult to talk about, it should be obvious that men are at least half of the equation when it comes to making a kid. Unfortunately, most of us just assume that it "will happen" and if not, it must be "her fault". However, the good news is that there are things that men can do to improve their own fertility and help have healthier sperm that's ready to do their part as they are trying to conceive.

  • Tips For Interacting With and Helping Disabled Veterans

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Sadly, over the past ten years, I seem to see more and more veterans in wheelchairs or with artificial limbs. Others have even more severe injuries. These aren't "old guys" with normal ailments, but younger guys too... ones that have sacrificed their youth and vibrancy for the relative peace and prosperity that we enjoy at home. While I think most of us welcome them in our hearts - it is sometimes difficult to express our gratitude to veterans in general... and only gets more awkward when they happen to be disabled. Hopefully these tips will help make things easier the next time you are in a meeting, dinner party, or simply sitting next to each other while waiting for the bus to work.
