A guide to adult tonsillectomies By Nicole (Pug Princess) Tonsillectomies used to be quite common among children to prevent complications down the road. Today, doctors typically don't suggest tonsillectomies unless the tonsils are degrading one's quality of life.

Most people probably think of fellow classmates running through the halls before the bell rings, whilst some would think of sitting at their kitchen table, with their books before them, taking instructions from their parent. For a few, learning in front of a computer could come to mind as well. Education is a broad spectrum that can be taught in many different settings....

Living with a mental illness By Chess ( *~Skittles Martinski~* ) It’s quite common for people with a mental illness to say they are suffering from it: “She suffers from depression” or “He suffers from bipolar” are phrases which sound familiar, but they may not be entirely accurate or helpful.

They may fear that their...
