Episode 96: TDC080522 Dr. Lisa Lichota

Join Sharon and Julie as they talk with Dr. Lisa Lichota, a pain management specialist. We discuss the best way to find relief for chronic pain and some of the things to avoid. Dr. Lisa Lichota clarifies common understandings and gives helpful suggestions to make sure you get the help you need! As women, we often put our needs behind everyone else's. Use this information to become informed and empowered! After reviewing the podcast, Dr. Lisa Lichota wanted to clarify a few points: - Pain as a symptom: While Dr. Lichota discussed pain as a symptom, many healthcare professionals in the pain management arena, including national key opinion leaders, discuss pain as a disease in itself, not a symptom. - The use of anti-depressants to treat pain: Many chronic pain patients are depressed and need and use anti-depressants to treat their depression. While some clinicians may use anti-depressants to treat the pain itself, the relationship between pain relief and anti-depressant effect remains unclear due to a lack of published research on the subject. There is not sufficient data to back up the claim that anti-depressants can effectively relieve chronic pain. - Keeping pain prescriptions to a minimum: Pain patients should have access to the various treatments and therapies they need to adequately relieve their pain. Physicians should not limit the amount of pain medication a patient receives due to fears that the medication may get into the wrong hands and be abused or misused. Patients should receive the appropriate treatment and be educated on the risks associated with these treatments. Specifically, parents and grandparents should be educated on how to manage their medications responsibly, including ensuring that the medication is only consumed by the person to whom it was prescribed.

Episode 90: TDC080327 Dr. Phil Part Deux

The Divas dish about dreaded pyramid home parties disguised as "just a little get-together." If you invite a Diva to a "party," you better be upfront and let her know she's expected to bring a voided check as a hostess gift, so you can withdrawal a monthly installment from her account. Whether it be chocolate, vitamins, cleaning supplies, or sex toys a Diva needs to know that you truly don't want to spend time with her, but rather need her to supplement your income. And how 'bout asking a Diva to pay for her plate at your wedding reception? But what tops the (wedding) cake is asking a Diva to chip in for the bride's sex toys? Ewwwwwwww...THAT is one for Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck..." On a more serious note, the Divas go back for a double dose of Dr. Phil's Life Strategies: Doing What Works, Doing What Matters. Divas share about their "families of origin" perspectives, because afterall, like Dr. Phil says, "There is no reality, only perception." We talk about forgiveness and "forgetting." We share, we ponder, we laugh...join in the fun.Sign up for our newsletter to enter in the drawing for this great cookbook.Listen to the Divas on your phone.
