Too Busy… for Everything???

“I am too busy to have sex.” My Fiance said this to me when I was trying to get him into bed. He said it truthfully, since he was working most of the time and studying for his 19 units. He has a lower sex drive than me, so it makes sense. Does not mean […]

Just Keep Moving – Literally

I have a friend who, I must say, is quite amazing. She has cerebral palsy and graduated from UC Irvine with a degree in psychology and wishes she can be a psychologist. However, in the last few years she lost her money she saved up in the money market. The money she gets for disabilities […]
