This blog was started in March 2013 by Maria H. Rexach-Rivera, MD …. aka Dr. Rex and Horty Rexach, to disseminate “eclectic” information through cyberspace.

She has devoted her complete professional career to the provision of medical care to those in need. Initially through the government health facilities in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. Then through the federal government facilities.

In 1985, there was a major change when she started working with the Department of Veterans Affairs. This is a position that she held until her retirement in February 2013. She worked for 14 years in the VA Mayaguez OPC. In 1999, she transferred to Jacksonville, Florida, where she remained for 7 years at the VA OPC. In 2006, she transferred to the VA Leesburg VA CBOC where she completed almost 28 years with the federal government.

  2. Hi Dr. Rex. I had to stop and read about you just now! Wow you are a real MD doctor and that excited me because my girl Alexanderia just went to work for a hospital here in Tulsa for Internal medicine doctors at St. John’s hospital. Wow! What a fantastic career you have and it’s so exciting to read about you and all your accomplishments. I can imagine when you started you wanted to help folks be healthy and with all you share it is like mind, body, spirit and soul health for you. I just realized this.
    I saw Yanni on your about me and I’m listening to this while I type to you!
    I have to stop and tell you I am blown away! I listen everyday to my girl tell about her doctors that she works for and I’m fascinated by the fact that you worked in Puerto Rico and then also for the Veterans, my Pa was a veteran and I think that is so amazing.
    I’m on vacation this week so I’ve had more time to read about people I see all the time and have never stopped by to say HI. You are a wealth of information and your blog is beautiful! Yay for you!

  3. Incredible Dr. Rex. I also graduated from RCM and became an OTR/L in the state of FL. I mostly did traveling contracts in nursing homes and some hospitals. But I also hold degrees in Art and education. Great to hear from you.

  4. Dr. Rex I did not read your “about” until just a few minutes ago. I read it only (I am sorry) because I have grown ever more impressed by your writing, by your kindness, by the way that you reach out even in your writing and by your astute observations of life. I felt compelled to comment on this even though I wasn’t sure if I could express my thoughts well enough to do o (I had to try.) After reading your “about” I am in awe!

    My deepest respect and gratitude.

    • Dear GK … you have made my day!! I really appreciate your very kind words. Many times I find that I wonder if what I post is being read by someone and making a difference in someone’s life. My main goal is sharing what I know, what I learn and what I have come to embrace as my personal beliefs.

      No need to be sorry!! LOL … Your thoughts and words have made the mark, believe me.

      From the innermost feelings, I really thank you for stopping by and writing these words. From the heart …. thank you!! 🙂

  5. Hey! Just a heads up. It seems to me that the US market is about to crash, and the ebola has been intentionally encouraged to ensure the compliance of the military against the US people in the resulting chaos. A controlled crash they must believe more desirable than otherwise.
    This chart indicates a well developed head and shoulders formation, one of the most reliable of technical patterns. The market is rigged and they will stop buying to support it when the pattern completes itself causing wide scale capitulation and damage.
    I’m going to buy some 1 gram gold bars Monday from http://www.jmbullion.com/cart/ .
    I am going to buy several 25 kg bags of rice, and a case of pink canned salmon Monday also. Im going to store some water, and hope like hell that if it hits the heat does not get shut down in Edmonton.
    Good Luck!
    Hopefully Im just a quack!

  7. Dear Horty..
    Forgive me for adding this link here.. but I just wanted your opinion upon it..
    I have for sometime had my suspicions on some reasoning on vaccines.. And agree there are some Very good vaccines out there which have irradiated certain diseases ..

    However this year my granddaughter was given a Nasal Flu vaccine, she is 4.. since having this she is pale and has constant colds.. is tired and I feel its due to the nasal spray.. She got very sick afterwards with high temp..

    Only this week on the BBC News,,, it was revealed that people who were being given flu shots were still getting flu and the medical profession released a statement saying the batches had been infective..

    I do not know if you know of Jeans Blog.. she posts lots of Posts which I am sure you will find of interest too.. But this one stood out for me today in my reader.. So I hope you do not mind me sharing the link..

    Thank you for taking the time to read… I would be delighted to have your thoughts upon this.. Love and Light. Sue

  9. Horty, thanks for nominating me for the “Challenge of Quotes.” I found it to be challenging, for sure, but I think I did a good job. I have already received acceptances from two of the three I nominated, so I’m sure it will continue and perpetuate, hopefully. It is a wonderful idea. 🙂

    The following is what I commented to the three on their About page, asking them to participate:

    “I have nominated you to participate in the “A Challenge of Quotes.”

    It is a consecutive 3-day challenge, that promotes inspirational sayings. Please click on my link https://sunshinebrightblog.wordpress.com/2015/09/18/a-challenge-of-quotes/ to follow the easy directions.”
