Women Issues Speaker – Self Respect and Discernment to Deal With Players Preying on You

It breaks my heart to hear of women being taken advantage of by deceitful men. I recently heard of a lonely woman who got involved with a younger man and was duped by him to take out a second mortgage on her home to “invest” in building a house (on land he owned) in Jamaica.

She was promised the two would live there together.

The only problem is the two were not married and she financed the majority of the construction of the home with him doing a little oversight during the building.

Once the home was built (which cost her $180,000 USD), the two broke up. When she asked her former boyfriend to sell the home or refund her money, he ignored her entirely and stopped returning her phone calls. Living in a foreign country, the lady had little recourse by law as she had no contract nor marital covenant.

Being in an entirely different country with no written contract whatsoever, this player preyed on this foolish woman who was seduced by her emotions and promises of love to invest her entire life’s savings, children’s inheritance and basically her entire estate in an ex-boyfriend’s new Caribbean home (which she did not have any contractual interest nor a marital right to claim).

That was enough money to send everyone of her children and grandchildren to college. The woman never bought any of her children a car or house, but when some smooth talking player passed by ready to prey on her insecurity and emotional emptiness she opened up her entire bank account to be stolen right beneath her eye.

The moral of this sad story is don’t do business ladies on love, because it may later turn out to be nothing more than momentary infatuation, lust and you losing big time at the hands of a smooth talker and player preying handsomely on you!

When the emotional flurry, butterflies and romance is gone you had better be sure you have not signed away your personal estate and financial investments.

Guard your heart and your purse when dating men. I don’t care if you are in a “committed” relationship or not. I don’t even care if you are engaged. Until you are legally married, you have no business living together, sharing a home, nor bank account.

If you have to finance a man’s life – get rid of him asap! Tell him to get lost and to get a job. Don’t invest in any man’s dreams until you are married to him.

If you are so desperate and emotionally lonely that you are selling yourself (or rather paying / bribing guys to date and be with you), they are not worthy of you. They are purely playing you, making you no better than a pimp and the man the whore.

Get a grip and take a check up from the neck up. Listen to your Pastor, family and friends. The first sign of danger is when you “love him so much” and begin to feel “nobody else understands… we’re in love” etc. that you isolate yourself and remove yourself from outside counsel and wisdom.

Womens Issues – How to Overcome PCOS

PCOS. Do you know what this stands for? Many people, including women, don’t until they’re sitting uncomfortably in their OB/GYN’s office and this acronym gets thrown out. I’ve been there. At age 25 I was sitting in a very sterile room when my doctor came in and rambled out: “PCOS.” I was like, “PCO-what?!”

Polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, is not uncommon and affects many women in their childbearing years. This is typically the time when PCOS is diagnosed, especially if a woman is trying to conceive and having no luck. PCOS often interferes with a woman’s menstrual cycle and her ability to ovulate, which is necessary for conception. PCOS is only one of many causes of female infertility. Wikipedia says that PCOS develops when excessive levels of androgens are produced. When these levels are too high, they can interfere with the release of eggs through ovulation, which in turn can cause infertility.

There are many risk factors for PCOS, such as being overweight, but you can still be diagnosed with PCOS even if you don’t meet these criteria. I, for example, am not overweight, but still have PCOS. Common symptoms of PCOS include missed periods, irregular cycles or severe PMS symptoms. One symptom that seems somewhat odd is excessive hair growth, which typically indicates a hormone imbalance. It’s important to understand that having one or more of these signs doesn’t necessarily mean you have polycystic ovarian syndrome. PCOS is typically genetic, so a family history of the disease means you have a higher chance of developing it.

In my case, we were simply trying to conceive without luck. My doctor decided to perform an ultrasound, which showed a number of ovarian cysts. For my ob/gyn this was the biggest indicator for my PCOS diagnosis.

So now you are wondering: “Is PCOS treatable?” Yes, it definitely is treatable, but there is no cure. The treatment is often managing its symptoms. For women with PCOS who wish to become pregnant, fertility treatments can be an option. Of course, managing the symptoms often means making some significant lifestyle changes to reduce weight. Avoiding highly processed foods and added sugars is also helpful.
