Hair Loss and Chronic Stress


Hair Shows Chronic Stress Levels, Heart Attack Risk – AARP.

I found some terrific suggestions on how to deal with those feelings of dissatisfaction that often spur on a mid-life crisis.  Here are some suggestions from web-md if you are in a slump and want to make wise decisions: Read the rest of this entry »
