Truth. This is too close to home for not only me but millions of others like me.

1 in 50 people suffer from highly allergic reactions.

1 IN 50!!!

They are...and it really is an awful thing. This is something that I have used to keep my little girl alive long enough to get her to the emergency room. I was SHOCKED when I went to order her pens for her first school year. I couldn't pay for them even with insurance! +Jim Sharp  It's horrible that parents, and families have to make decisions like that.

Take a guess.

They were all allowed to....

1. Marry at age 10?

2. Select their own clothes everyday?

3. Have a voice from an early age?

Which do you think it is?

Insightful article about the commonalities between women leaders in the world.

1946. Collaboration between artist Salvador Dali, and the imagination of Walt Disney. The result? Surreal... Beautifully captivating.
Makes one wish both were still around to see it's completion.

Imagine being 5 years old...and having both parents die, and having to raise yourself. I can't imagine. The world is so big, and full of scary things for a kid...

Hello friends...please do this for me...signing the petition is simple, and I'd appreciate the help. If you have someone that you know that has allergies you can understand the seriousness of this issue. Something must be done, and well social media seems the to be the only tool I have at the moment.

If you don't want to sign, please share for me.
Thank you

We currently have to pay $800 for 2 epi pens for my son and I. This leaves no room to buy any extra for backup. We are blessed to be able to afford these, but I have talked to so many who can't! Mylan, the maker's of the Epi Pen, currently monopolize the market. They have continued to raise the prices...

This sickens me... I'm not sure if you have ever had a child with allergies...or watched helplessly while your little baby is writhing in pain because they cannot breathe after ingesting something they are allergic to, but it is HORRIFIC. I don't wish it on ANYONE. We were BARELY able to afford epipens for her, and upon discovering this news I am ANGRY...like SO angry.. I implore anyone that has been touched by allergic reactions to act out and call this company out. What they're doing by raising the price of the epipen 400% is insane.

They are the only company to manufacture it right now and they know we need it to help our families survive allergic attacks. This is insane. Please share this post and bear with me as I try to make a dent in their prolific armor through social media. People need this.

I can't afford this...without it...my child could die.

VIOLENCE IS NOT THE ANSWER.

No one deserves to die. ever.

10 Dallas police officers were fired upon by a sniper or 2 (still not confirmed) as they readied to protect peaceful protesters tonight in Dallas. They were fired on from a parking garage and 3 are dead and more injured.

Killing people to avenge other people being wronged doesn't work. It does not further your cause...or make others want to support it. It exacerbates the problem and creates chaos.

Stop.

Don't hurt....but HELP instead.

First let me say that at first glance Longorias BBQ isn't the prettiest spot in town. What they lack in aesthetics they more than make up for with their beans and brisket sausage...you read that right ...brisket sausage. By far it's the best I've ever had. The irony here is that I didn't like their brisket this trip... it was a little on the dry side. Maybe I'll give it another go next time through. HOWEVER....what really made my two meat plate hop was the beans!! I don't know who they have making those frijoles in the Longoria kitchen but they are GOOD. I'm talking like your abuelita putting a yummy bowl of beans in front of you when you're 7 good... that's really really really good for my gringo friends. I'd go back just to eat a bowl or two! The sausage is great...really good. The bbq sauce...not so good and the vinegar concoction doesn't blend well with the smokey meaty flavor of the meats. I'd prefer something a little sweeter...bit that's just the diabetes in me talking. It may work for you so try it. The pecan pie...oh sweet lort eat it all. The sweet tea...so good. Overall this was well worth the drive. I left full and with 3 dozen tamales for later. (What...I'm Hispanic. ..we always leave with a plate for later. :)) Give Longorias BBQ a go next time you find yourself in the Everman Tx area. Tell them I sent ya! They might look at you a little weird because no one knows who I am really...but we can pretend that their great customer service is a result of my sending y'all there! Ha ha.

The doctors at this practice are GREAT!...a little too great as I can't seem to get in to see my doc anymore. Appointments are always booked for weeks or months out. Often if you're sick or ill, the doctor isn't available and you end up seeing a nurse practitioner. It's annoying as you want to say you have a regular doctor, when in fact you have a regular nurse practitioner. It's unfortunate, but I'll be looking elsewhere for a more available doctor. :(

My husband and I have used Legendary Self Storage for the past 7 months and have been pleased with the level of service that the front office provides whenever we have any questions. Our questions are always addressed in a timely manner and we have had nothing but a positive experience in storing our items with this company. With 24 hr access and coded access gate, this location was perfect for us as we sought a place where our items would be secured and safe. I'd recommend Legendary Self Storage to anyone in the area seeking peace of mind when storing their items.

hWhen my daughter suffered a severe ankle sprain during a game we went to see Dr. McNutt, the staff was awesome and the Dr. was quick to see us. He checked out her ankle and xrays and we were thinking she'd need surgery, but he reassured us that she wouldn't need it. I'd recommend his office again and again.

I have to say that the food is great and the atmosphere is great. I have had a few problems with the people they've hired, but the manager has always been considerate enough to address our concerns and welcome us back. We'll be back.
