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?

Posted 07-24-2014 07:33 AM by RABG

Well here I am writing about the end, but it isn't, it is a stand-off. I have mentioned frequently about 1. Wound Nurses. 2 The surgeon and my husband. I am in the middle, how did this happen? Easy, I don't want to let anyone down.
This is such an emotional ride, up and down. As of yesterday my VNA came and measured the wound, it is not healing in the undermining. I know that because the pain is so intense. Yet at the wound center their measurements are much different, it shows that the...
