When ladies reach mid-forties to mid-fifties, there's a lot of changes that we can accurately blame on hormones. I hear it in clinic through snippets like, 'I'm just so tired all the time' or 'Doc, I just want my wife back'. Let me reassure these ladies from the get-go...

Taco Bell. That’s my guilty craving. If I text my wife and tell her I’m running by Taco Bell on the way home, she knows I’ve had a long day. We all have cravings. Some people have more cravings than others. And some cravings are stronger than others. My Taco Bell cravi...

My mom has advanced metastatic pancreatic cancer.  I don’t know how to describe it better than to say it sucks.  I’m usually not one for language that strong, but it’s honest and accurate.  Cancer tends to have a mind of its own.  Some kinds are worse than others.  Pan...

We all have friends.  That’s a safe assumption.  If you don’t, then read last week’s article to see why you need them!  Here’s the thing, though: how do you know whether or not the friendship is healthy for both of you?  Or maybe it’s healthy for one of you and not the...

My family and I recently traveled to Texas.  My oldest son was slated to play in the Southwest Regional for the Little League World Series.  What’s the first thing I did?  Text a long-time friend of mine who was real involved in Little League in Texas and usually volun...

Someone once told my wife that when God was giving out thyroids, she and the ladies on her side of the family were in the back of the line.  They didn’t get good ones.  She, her mom and her sister have all had their thyroid surgically removed due to large multinodular...
