You’ll never forget your first EpiPen experience, especially as a parent. Strangely, I had my first experience this weekend amidst all of the swirling controversy around the big pharma company that’s been price-hiking the darn thing into the stratosphere.

This doesn’t surprise me one single bit (via MIT): Your mental health is reflected in the images you choose to post on social media, say researchers who have trained a machine to spot depression on Instagram. And this shouldn’t either: The researchers found that depressed individuals tend to post images that are bluer, grayer, and … Continue reading "Instagram and Depression"

This is sad: More than 50,000 Americans with autism become adults each year, but more than 80 percent of them are unemployed. 80% unemployment is too dang high… although, since ASD is a spectrum disorder there are many who are not literally able to work.

One of the most motivating reasons to have people in our lives that can speak honestly and truthfully to us is so that can be challenged in the ways that truly push us forward.
