Number of Young Adults on ADHD Drugs Soars
Wed Mar 12, 2014
I am a 40+ woman that is currently going to a university in Florida and see where some of the spike in prescriptions is coming from. College students see nothing wrong with using Adderall in order to study for exams. They openly talk about it and share ways to get prescriptions. College is hard&hell …
Drugstore Clinics Aren't Best for Sick Kids, Doctors Say
Mon Feb 24, 2014
Drugstore clinics are there for when it is not feasible to go to your regular doctor. I have brought my son to one twice, both times on the weekend. Once for waking up with Pink Eye and the other for an ear infection. These are both issues that needed to be addressed and could not wait until Monday. …
Doctors' dress code aims to halt nasty germs
Mon Jan 20, 2014
Being someone that wears a lab coat often, I have several. Providing that the doctors do not get custom embroidery, even the most expensive lab coats at a uniform store are about $40. But they can be as cheap as $10. There is no reason for someone to not wear a new one each day. My scrubs are launde …
Biden: One year after Newtown, $100 million to mental health services
Tue Dec 10, 2013
I fully agree that access to mental health services is lacking in every state. Insurance rarely pays to see a therapist that is needed to make an accurate diagnosis, even if they do… there is a 6+ month wait. Unfortunately, primary care doctors are the ones at the front lines of the mental he …
New EpiPen law could save lives of schoolkids with severe allergies
Wed Nov 13, 2013
I agree that this law is needed. Maybe now that the importance of Epi-pens will prompt all schools to allow the students who do have known allergies carry their Epi-pens and inhalers with them at all times. There are still some school districts that require the students to keep them in the nurses of …

So let's see here..... Diabetes patients account for over 44% of renal failure patients needing a kidney. And diabetes is becoming an epidemic in the U.S. What will happen after we start letting people get paid for their kidneys? It is probable that many of the donors will at some point in their lif …
Voters weigh $15 hourly minimum wage for airport,hotel workers
Fri Oct 18, 2013
If they want to earn more than minimum wage.... then learn a skill that is greater than being able to load baggage onto a plane or clean a toilet. There are jobs that require no skill, hence the reason that they earn a minimal amount. If people want to make a living wage then go to school to learn a …
'Required reading': As textbook prices soar, students try to cope
Sun Sep 15, 2013
There are ways to save money buying textbooks BUT renting & e-texts are not the way to go. I currently attend a large university in Florida and always save tons when buying textbooks. First, I go to the bookstore to check out what comes with the book in order to make sure that I buy everything t …
NSA leaker hunkers down in Hong Kong -- for now
Wed Jun 12, 2013
Has anyone questioned what this guy really did for these companies? He dropped out of high school, got a GED, kicked out of the Army before the end of bootcamp, then worked as a security guard for the NSA.... OK maybe. But from security guard to IT Security at the CIA and shortly thereafter getting …
Student loan woes put dreams on hold
Sun Apr 14, 2013
