Apart from the acute diseases such as cancer and cardiac failures, we are suffering increasingly from chronic illnesses due to a variety of factors – sedentary lifestyle (lack of exercise in other words), unhealthy diet, stress and environmental pollution. Acute and chronic diseases are affecting not just the middle-aged and senior folks, but the younger people these days are not spared these health problems.

Lack Of Focus and Lethargy

My ApologyA thousand apologies to my regular readers or visitors of my blog for being insensitive about the need to update my blog periodically so that you can read or digest something for your health or whats-not.

To be frank, as an owner of several blogs and coupled with my slowness to improve my health after my major triple heart bypass surgery 18 months ago, it really affected me in a huge way when it comes to writing articles for my blog. My concentration level had dropped tremendously as I gets tired easily. Lately my eye gets dryer and tired even after 2 hours online. What I suspected most is that my medication is the real “culprit”. Have you any similar experiences?

My main concern for this blog is more on the communication aspect because each time an article was posted, there rarely is any feedback or comment from the visitors. Without it, there is no way of knowing whether my article sucks or is acceptable to the readers. What surprises me is that I have an average of 20 subscribers daily even though I had not posted any article for the past 2 months. Are these legitimate subscribers or Spammers? I have no answer!

Mind you, sudden pain in your limbs could sometimes be an indication of the start of the labour pains.
