When I was growing up, I had few pleasant memories of the holidays but the ones that I do remember invoke a feeling of excitement, gifts and anticipation. When I had children I wanted to recreate those emotions in myself and wanted to create those feelings in them and make the holidays special. I would decorate the house and the tree and get excited about shopping for each unique gift. And then as my children were born we started on our traditions, buying an ornament for each of them to…

Prescription Addiction

Written by Emily S.
In July, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that every day 46 people die from prescription drug overdose. This finding is in alignment with similar data released this month that shows a dramatic rise in painkiller and heroin use, with the amount nearly doubling from 1999 to 2012.
