Halloween can be a scary time for some children. Attractions, decorations, costumes, haunted houses, parks and even trick or treating can stir up intense fear. When you have a terrified child on your hands, it can be difficult for them and your entire family to enjoy the popular holiday. Consider taking these few steps, and perhaps you can minimize their concerns before October 31 arrives.

As social media becomes more a part of our lives, there is a growing debate about whether social networks like ********, Instagram and Twitter are having an effect on our self-image. Several studies would suggest yes and, depending on the person and the feedback they receive from the public on these sites, eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia may develop. Is there really a connection between social media and eating disorders?

Life Right Now

Right now life is going pretty well. I was really sick about three weeks ago, and I think my boss was upset about it. I didn't mean to be, it was a really bad acute sinus infection. They put me on levaquin, apparently one of the strongest antibiotics out there. So I took it, but it scares me that a lot of antibiotics don't work on me anymore because I have had so many sinus infections. And of course when I get a sinus infection, my asthma acts up.

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - The New Player

Posted 09-22-2014 at 04:05 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

When I ended my last post I mentioned that a "new player" was coming, he has. Dr. PS is a plastic surgeon who was asked by Dr. S to do the necessary surgery. What does that mean? This is the last, option I have of healing this wound and it will be hard.
In my post of "surgical debrediment" I wrote about the procedure, but this is going to be so much more. The PS will do a significantly larger debrediment, down to the bone again. I will stop calling the procedure a surgical...

In an age where everyone is connected at all times, and when companies like Google are coming out with devices to make us even more connected, the idea of an Internet addiction may seem ridiculous. Make no mistake, even in a world where everyone has a smartphone surgically attached to their hands, it is possible to cross the line from normal use to addiction. So how can you tell if you have a healthy love for technology, or if you have an addiction?
