Since someone in my family (not me!) takes Boniva for osteoporosis, I’m attuned to the goings on in the osteoporosis world. Did you know that one in three women and one in five men over the age of 50 will suffer a fracture that is caused by weak bones? That’s a fact! Check out this site for more info about osteoporosis HERE.
But enough with that! How to celebrate World Osteoporosis Day? We have plenty of bone-themed gifts that are perfectly suited for anyone with a bone break, fracture or crack. Doctors like these too! Take a few minutes this World Osteoporosis Day and indulge in some bone play. Build a skeleton model, tell a few bones jokes (see Skeleton Jokes post), or better yet get a bone density scan!
How about a Box o Bones? Or Skeleton Magnets? Or a pill box to help remember to take those pesky pills? We also created a book, “Laughter is the Best Medicine” filled with medical jokes such as,”Doctor! Can I have a second opinion? Of course. Come back tomorrow.” and one liners from the ever popular Henny Youngman. Losing bone mass should not equal losing one’s sense of humor.
