In an English course at Villanova University in 1981, Maria interviewed her mom, who likened her to Barbara Walters. She never looked back.

Meet Pamela

Pamela Oglesby, also known as Pamela99, is known in HubVille for her informative and comprehensive medical and health - related articles.

One of the first nurses I met when I joined HubPages, Pamela's work continues to make me so proud. I believe that nurses give the best patient education out of the entire health care team.

Pamela is a remarkably strong woman. Rather than giving up when diagnosed with lupus, she readjusted her life goals. As a writer, she can reach a much larger audience in the same thorough, meaningful and responsible style that she served as a nurse.

I encourage you to peruse Pamela's profile to check out some of the varied subjects she has written about. I am quite sure you will find a myriad of subjects that you are interested in learning more about.

The times I feel most relaxed are ....

At home I feel relaxed when it is quiet and I am sitting in my favorite chair reading a good book on my Kindle. I also feel so peaceful with prayer and meditation. My favorite times are when I am sitting with my children and their families laughing and talking.

The times I feel saddest are.. .

when I think about the reality of losing my mother, who has some serious heart problems and losing my husband. He had a stroke 5 years ago and has been having some stroke related problems recently and the doctors can’t treat the problem

Something I'd like to teach others...

I like to teach others about healthy living and new medical advances. I was a nurse for 22 years, so good health will probably always be a part of my writing. I have also done a lot of work with spouses of alcoholics

My secret passion ... my dream job....

I would love to have a job where I could travel, then write about my experiences

.Most hated gift I ever gave someone ...

I can’t think of anything specific, but I hate giving money as a gift. I prefer to try to pick out something special for that person.

The gift I could have done without ...

Some relatives brought me back a bamboo beach bag from the Bahamas, which was huge. They knew I have lupus and can’t go to the beach, so it sits in the top of my closet taking up space. I really should give it away to someone who can use it.

If you peeked in my junk drawer, you'd be surprised to find ...

a packed drawer with things like measuring tapes, small tools, tape, string, a jar of screws and nails, a small drill and work knife.

My date from Hades ....

When I was about 17 my mother made me go on a date with a friend’s son. We did not really hit it off at all and I was not happy with my mother. Then, he asked me to go to dinner and I grudgingly said yes. So, a week later after I actually turned down 4 dates and the guy stood me up!

My worst/ or funniest vacation story ...

.My worst vacation was a cruise to the Bahamas with some family members. First there was a bomb threat so we got onboard 3 hours late. Next, the seas were rough and we couldn’t even land on Freeport as they were busy having a tornado. I had been sick prior to the trip and was pumped full of prednisone, which makes me a bit nervous. Plus, I had to watch after my elderly mother. My husband seemed to be ignoring me to spend time with his daughter and that didn’t go over well. Fortunately, we spent time with other family members aboard and the last day was pretty good, but I don’t want to take that cruise again, ever.

A life goal on my bucket list....

Now that I am retired, I still want to do some more traveling, especially related to my ongoing ancestral search. I definitely want to visit England.

What I most look for in a friend...

I look for someone that is there for me in good times and bad; someone I can laugh with and someone I can trust.

Something I will never part with...

My mother’s ring. My 3 sons bought me a mother’s ring when they were fairly young and could hardly afford it. This was about 6 months after my home was broken into and all my jewelry was stolen.

A life lesson I will never forget ....

When you are dating someone don’t jump into a serious relationship too quickly as you are both on your best behavior in the beginning. It is important to be friends and gain trust before giving in to the hormones. I did it all wrong in my first marriage. These are so much better with this marriage as we were friends for some years before we really fell in love.

The worst part of getting older...

The worst part of getting older is having wisdom now that would have been helpful when I was younger, but now health problem limits my activities.

A writing lesson I learned the hard way...

I am doing freelance writing and the hardest thing is using commas correctly 100% of the time. I have been studying them as you can have no errors when you do this type of writing. Of course, on Hubpages I've made many errors over the years and reading out loud helps me find little errors better than any other method.

My favorite movie and why...

That’s a hard question I love romantic comedies, action and suspense movies (no horror flicks). I’m a big fan of the old Alfred Hitchcock movies. A couple of older movies I like are The Shawshank Redemption and The Blind Side. The Shawshank Redemption is a good story of friendship and a wrong that is made right.

What subjects / genres do you enjoy reading/ about ?

I like history, biographies, Christian themed stories, suspense novels (but no vampires or anything evil) and well-written fiction. I thought The Help was a very good book. I also read National Geographic.

What would be a subject/ genre that you would like to read more/ about..

I am interested in a large variety of things but I still want to read more about history.

Can you take us to a favorite piece of writing on HubPages by you that does not get much traffic..

Do Livestock Injections Harm You? I think this is such an important topic and people do not realize the harm it causes.

Thank you, Pamela....

I selected The Supremes and The Temptations: "For Better or Worse" for you, Pam.

Your life philosophy is truly inspiring and motivating. I thank you very much for allowing us to get to know you better.

      I was absorbed in this from start to finish. I "met" Pamela quite early on after I joined Hubpages and it is interesting to learn more about her life. I particularly could relate to her reply to the question, "What makes you sad?" since my father is in a similar position to her mother.

      Wishing you and your husband well Pamela.

      HubPages is graced with so many lovely ladies and Pamela is certainly one of the loveliest. I love her comment, "The worst part of getting older is having wisdom now that would have been helpful when I was younger" why didn't I think of that? It is so very true.

      I have been privileged to be a follower of Pam's and keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

      Maria, thank you for introducing me to Pamela 99. I am so pleased to see such wonderful hubbers with the courage and character of Pamela’s.

      Pam, I so identify with your struggle over the use of commas. I, too, always seem to struggle with them. A writer once told me, “Genna, you have the most prolific use of the comma I have ever encountered.” But we can’t sacrifice creativity for the sake of grammar.

      I hope you realize your goal in travelling to England. :-) By the way, I love that song, “The Long Day is Over.”

      Thank you , Maria and Pam.

      Until now, I wasn't familiar with Nurse Pam, but very happy to get acquainted with her!

      I was so very impressed the positive ambiance flowing through her comments. She has a great deal on her shoulders, and yet her attitude is most definitely on the upside, and her faith in Christ is obvious as well.

      Thank you for the introduction to your friend, Mar. I look forward to getting better acquainted!!

    • Nellieanna profile image

      Nellieanna Hay 

      8 years ago from TEXAS

      This interview has really affected me. I've known this lovely lady almost from the earliest of my Hub days, over 2 years ago and we've interacted throughout the time, but not so deeply. She's left lovely comments on many of my hubs and I've visited hers from time to time. But I am so amazed that I never dreamed she was ill and certainly not with a serious illness like lupus, nor was I more than in passing aware that she is a veteran RN! This is truly amazing. She's among the most pleasant, positive and cheerful people with whom I've mingled on here! That she has such an attitude in spite of what I know is not an easy situation is inspirational.

      I've a good friend who has lupus and she, too, is winning with it, but it is sometimes fiercely difficult. Pamela, I've just emailed Gail your hub link, "Lupus - My Story and Changes I Made". It's a mini-manual for everyone to improve their habits for better health and especially for someone with lupus. So many of your hubs are excellent resources for health matters as well as others that concern us all!

      Not to dwell on that, Pamela - because it's clear that you focus on it mainly to deal with it and work to live with it in the most positive of ways. You have my admiration and love.

      Your interview is so interesting, too. I see we share some favorite movies and types of movies. "The Shawshank Redemption" is such a classic. It was one which my beloved stepson has said was important to his personal odyssey, too.

      And I've never met a Hitchcock film I didn't like. Do you know of "Rebecca", based on Dauphne Du Maurier's timeless novels; - one of Hitch's earliest films in the 1940s? I saw it then and have loved it ever since. I looked and looked for a tape or DVD and finally my granddaughters found one for me! What a cast: Laurence Olivier & Joan Fontaine, with Judith Anderson,Gladys Cooper, George Sanders. We could enjoy an evening of classic movies together, I'll bet!

      Maria, again you've brought into the spotlight a marvelous person. Thank you! (the music is good too! I love Nora Jones and you've introduced me to a lovely new piece. The Temptations are good, too - and with the Supremes - wow.)

      Maria it is only through reading this interview that I realised that I don't 'follow' Pam, although we do drop in on each other now and then. I will be rectifying that because I see now that I am missing out on some really useful writing.

      Pam what an unfortunate cruise, really bad timing. Your positive outlook is an inspiration. Stay strong.

      Nora Jones is one of my favourite singers, just love her voice and this particular song.

      Janine, It is JUST like you to be sweet in your comments, my friend.

      Gail, I agree that Pam puts life in GREAT perspective and GIVES so much to us in her writings.

      Mary, I MIGHTILY agree with your synopsis of Pam.

      Linda, It is fabulous to have such a source that we all can LEARN from, you are so right.

      LORD, LOOKS like a cool LINE-UP of supporters, despite my bias towards nurses...LOL.

      For some reason, Pam, Gypsy Rose, Maria Couchara and always exploring come to my hubs, almost lined up. Pamela has sharee her grief with us through Lupus, DNA and getting prepared for a loved one's departure. Pamela is like an angel nurse to us. No wonder three ladies that I mentioned are in the RN field. I sincerely hope her hubby gets better and we should pray for her too. Thanks Pam for being such a good friend.

      How wonderful to learn about the personal side of Pamela, whose well researched, timely, and interesting medical articles I love and always learn from.

      Although I knew she had personal challenges with Lupus, I didn't know she was also stressed with medical challenges that her husband and mother are dealing with.

      She is a positive example for all of us that we can still live a meaningful and contributory life despite any challenges that we have.

      I admire and am in awe of this lovely lady and enjoyed reading this wonderful interview.

      Voted up across the board except for funny and shared.

      Hub Hugs & Love to Both of You,
