We need new vocabulary. We require more extensive terminology for social media friends and electronic interactions. My kids do not know a world where social media friends did not exist, but still, they seem to know that there is a difference between a Facebook friend and a friend who knows your heart. Depending on your personality and social comfort zones, however, it might not be so easy to know the difference. My kids enjoy interacting with people in person, talking with them, hanging out with them, so they know that an internet-based...

Hospital VP Rides to Conquer Cancer in Honor of ‘Grand’ Grandfather

Posted by on Aug 25, 2015 in Cancer, Events | 0 comments

I have decided to participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer to honor my grandfather, Angelo Incorvia Jr. who fought lung cancer for several years. My grandfather was part of the highly respected Greatest Generation. Similar to many of his generation, he honorably served his country in World War II. He was so compelled to enlist that he found a creative way to circumvent the minimum age requirement and hearing screening to gain acceptance in the Army and ultimately served for three years in Europe. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had...

How to Deal with SWAT: Stress, Worry, Anxiety, and Tension

Posted by on Aug 20, 2015 in Mental Health | 0 comments

Modern life is riddled with many problems and situations involving SWAT. This is a constant, perennial, and vexing by-product of our current lifestyles. As such, SWAT, in one form or another, follows us like a shadow, everywhere. They rob us of the sense of freedom and enjoyment we should experience from living our everyday lives. Stress is caused by feelings of anxiety, tension, and worry about situations (or unpleasant experiences) that are happening to us. They cause a great deal of psychological and emotional distress and pain. Often,...

Inch Deep, Mile Wide: Parenthood…We Laugh to Keep from Crying

Posted by on Aug 6, 2015 in Parenting | 0 comments

By the time you read this, I will be in Costa Rica on an exciting vacation with the hubby and our two cheeky monkeys…or possibly rocking back and forth while curled in a ball alternating between laughter and tears, having just traveled several hours on a plane with the aforementioned cheeky monkeys. This, of course, is an exaggeration (as you may have noticed, I am sometimes prone to exaggeration). The monkeys, though still only in elementary school, have become quite the seasoned travelers, having already traipsed all over the United...
