I chose Saturday to disconnect from the internet, phone, email, text, computer, and television. I prepared breakfast with my kids; we ate as a whole family, which rarely happens due to our busy school/ work schedules.

I felt connected to her in the same way that I connect to my patients in the hospital, I felt the pain and suffering in her voice, while there is no cure for her disease. She was telling me about the daily struggles of having the disease. Then I had to use the computer to search for medical centers that she can go to get advice or therapy for her arthritis disease. It was not that hard to disconnect from technology that day since I had so many things to do, but I sure did not last for 24 hours!

Electrolytes

hello, I guess my favorite electrolyte is potassium, because its crucial for human life. My least favorite is magnesium because we don’t hear much about it, its not that common.
