I am 48 years old (yes that's old compared to some of you).

I have worked in nursing and/or healthcare management positions for 24 years. Primarily OB, Neonatal, Mental Health, Occupational Health and Geriatrics. In Jan 2008 I started my own business to board horses and do equine/human education. I am also a certified dog trainer.

I've been around the block so to speak and seem to be always helping others. I've been told that the reason people seek me out for advice is that I am approachable and caring. But on the same token even though I consider the person's feelings. I tell it like I see it. I've dealt with people in trouble with the law, dysfunctional families such as those with abuse & marriage problems. Not to mention problems with employees and employers.

I don't ever claim to know it all, and always keep an open mind.


14/f i'm scared to try tampons again and its not because im scared they will hurt or anything because the last time i used them (when i was 13) i couldnt feel anything. anyways when i was 13 i was wearing a tampon and i was supposed to change it at 4 or something and i totally forgot and i ended up changing it at 6. its just that whenever i wear them i always forget to change them because i can't feel the tampon inside of me and im scared because i dont wanna get TSS or anything. can somebody please help me on how to change them sooner? thanks soo much

Once you get into a routine, it will be easier. Think of it in terms of Before school, at lunch, and after school, and before bedtime. It is recommended that you wear a pad at night. You might try a schedule such as 8-12-4-8 also.
