Every other weekend the man and I head out on a random road trip. We don’t always have a destination in mind, but one time months back my man had a destination in mind. He was going to test my dang anxiety and see about playing Bingo near the seacoast. He had told me about this Bingo option in the past but I was reluctant to agree, so he just brought me knowing that my anxiety may take over and I wouldn’t go in.

When Should I Go To the Emergency Department?

When Should I Go To the Emergency Department

When Should I Go To the Emergency Department? As a busy Mom of three that works from home, there are often times where I will debate heading to the emergency department because time simply is precious to me. One would argue that my health is what matters most as a means to have more time on this Earth, but the reality is, with the day to day hustle and bustle of motherhood and client work, I tend to put myself last on that priority list.
