As a health care provider I know all too well the consequences and reality that depression and suicide brings, not only amongst patients I have cared for, but with coworkers as well. Depression amongst healthcare workers is rarely talked about but is something that effects many of us, myself included. The Netflix show @13reasonswhy recently came out with season two highlighting mental health awareness, the effects of bullying, and suicide. If you have seen the show, do you think it glorifies or brings understanding to suicide? Comment below!
When you choose Mainstreet as your #pediatric clinic, you choose 24-hour care, 7 days a week. Not only do we provide regular office hours, we also offer extended weekend and walk-in hours, after-hours care, #telemedicine , and in-home visits.
Our goal is to make #healthcare accessible and cost-effective for our patients, because we all know that children don’t get sick on a set schedule.
Ok, world...universe...I give up. You win. Healthcare for me is rapidly failing and I will definitely fall thru the cracks. Knowing you need a procedure and doctors saying they won’t be told what to do. Well, I know my syndrome. I know my body. And I know that 95lbs is NOT a healthy weight and should NOT be the threshold before considering helping. And thanks to insurance—or lack thereof—there’s only so many referrals I can have, PT to be used, home health checks to see if I’m ok. It’s easy to go home and forget people like me. It’s not your pain. No amount of crying or pleading for help changes anything.
My kids...thank goodness they are here. If they weren’t, I’d have no reason. I’m so tired of people feigning that they care, then walk away.

What are you waiting for?? Seriously? The only regret you'll have with these oils is not jumping in sooner.
I've been oiling for 4 years and all the time I think: Man, life would have been better if I had peppermint and lemon in college to help me study. Imagine the lavender I could have used all those years I lifeguarded. Oh and if only I had digize when my tummy was so messed up in my early 20s. Pregnancy-these kinda would have been a lifesaver. Babies...oh babies. Thankfully, I had them in my hands when Boyd was a year old.
We really do use these 11 oils, diffuser, household cleaner, and Ningxia EVERYDAY.
I just went outside without insect repellent, I am now covered in lavender. I start each day with a drop of lemon in my water, citrus fresh in the diffuser, Copaiba and panaway on my husband after his weekend trip to skyzone, frankincense in my face moisturizer, thieves blasting in the kids' classroom, digize as needed (not needed often thankfully!), Stress away and lavender in the diffuser for an amazing night of sleep. Mark likes Raven to help him breathe better at night and sleep hard.
Whew. What a list. We also all have an ounce of Ningxia in the morning and wipe the counters down with thieves household cleaner. $325 worth of products for $144. All those oils plus a diffuser and a membership that gets you 24% off for all future purchases (but not locking you in to any commitments)
Ready? Yes, I know you are! Link to order on my profile.

🚨 3 EASY THORACIC EXTENSION MOBILIZATIONS [thoracic mobility] 🚨from @lustrengththerapy⠀
The thoracic spine refers to the upper and middle back and consist of 12 vertebrae.⠀
Lifters often lack thoracic mobility due to repetitive motion/overuse and a lack of stretching and mobility training. A lack of thoracic extension can affect your arch during a bench press, difficulty maintaining a neutral spine during a squat/deadlift and chronic middle back tension.⠀
To help improve your thoracic extension, perform these exercises:⠀
1️⃣ Thoracic Extensions on Foam Roller:⠀
➡️ Lay on the ground and position the middle back on a foam roller⠀
➡️ Interlock hands behind your neck and extend the spine over the foam roller⠀
➡️ Be sure to keep the rib cage pulled downwards!⠀
2️⃣ Thoracic Extensions with Barbell:⠀
➡️ Place a barbell slightly lower than shoulder level on a squat rack⠀
➡️ Hold onto the barbell while standing arms length away from the squat rack⠀
➡️ Posteriorly tilt the pelvis and push the torso towards the ground⠀
3️⃣ GHD Thoracic Extensions:⠀
➡️ Lay face up on a GHD while grabbing onto the pegs⠀
➡️ Do not allow the rib cage to flare upwards and excessively arching the lower back⠀
➡️ Focus on deep, diaphragmatic breathing for the best stretch⠀
Incorporating these thoracic extensions mobilizations can help with chronic neck and middle back tension, increase your arch in the bench press along with unwanted shoulder tension. Aim for 30 - 60 seconds per mobilization!⠀

Dig together for the common goal of clean water. We all deserve it!
@instagraciee's #MyGBStory | "Gandhi said “the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Having the opportunity to travel to Honduras for an engineering trip with Global Brigades has been one of my most worthwhile and humbling experiences yet. Throughout our stay, our group had the opportunity to help design a water distribution system for the under resourced rural community of Los Pozos, in order to provide community members clean water for years to come. I recommend everyone I know, whether you are pursing engineering or not, to go outside of your comfort zone and travel to go help those who need your time and care. You can learn so much – just the feeling of hope you offer the people can impact them in ways you never thought possible. If you are not able to volunteer outside of your country, I’d encourage you to do what you can, when you can. Everyone should have the right to clean water, but the reality is that not everyone does and to help bring those rights to people creates a whole new awareness and emotions that cannot be explained without experiencing it yourself! By working with the community members, we had the opportunity to learn, understand and appreciate a culture outside of our own. I am fortunate to have been able to participate in this project alongside motivational co-brigaders, staff and community members."
