Nine graduate from Drug Court program, celebrate healthy lives

As nine graduates of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit Drug Court filed into the commissioners' boardroom in the Liberty County Courthouse Annex on Thursday afternoon, it was impossible to tell the difference between those who once struggled with substance-abuse problems and those who had never touched drugs in their lives.

Patience pays off with discipline

The human desire for short-term gratification is satisfied by jet planes that travel coast-to-coast in four hours, fast-food outlets and all manner of new and ever-faster electronic technologies. Because people are no longer accustomed to waiting patiently, they tend to become quickly frustrated when natural processes can't be circumvented and they are forced to wait for a solution to "mature." When that happens, people are inclined to begin unwittingly engaging in self-defeating behavior.

Mosquito season here, be careful

Was this winter cold enough for you? I can't ever remember a winter when I had to dress so warmly for such long periods of time. And if we found it cold, hopefully some of our native insects did as well. Wouldn't it be nice if some of the mosquitoes didn't make it to spring? That certainly would lessen some of our health concerns and let us enjoy the benefits of living in coastal Georgia.

What constitutes 'verbal abuse'

It appears that a recent column of mine had an effect similar to a Rorschach inkblot: People read their own personal experiences and/or biases into it and reacted to it from that perspective.

Don't wait to seek diagnosis, care for diabetes

According to 2011 estimates released in January by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes now affects nearly 26 million Americans of all ages with another 79 million people having what doctors call prediabetes. CDC says that prediabetes, which affects 35 percent of adults, is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Many people first become aware that they have diabetes when they develop one of its life-threatening complications such as:

Don't fall for high school soap operas

Q: Our 15-year-old son, a high-school sophomore, was an honor student until he got to high school and took up with a group of kids who think good grades are "uncool." As a result, his grades have been in the tank all year (and most of last year). We put him on slight restriction after his first report card, but nothing changed. For the past three months, he's been on full restriction: no social life, no outside activities (unless at our church), no cell phone, television, computer (unless absolutely necessary for schoolwork) or video games. All the things he ...

Hesitation can be costly for diagnosis

I grew up in the days when you didn't discuss body functions. No, I'm not so old that you couldn't say the word "legs," but as a young nurse I often was embarrassed when I had to discuss their digestive processes with patients. And I found that many people obviously were equally squeamish when it came to talking about their colon and rectum. That hesitation still is evident today and may well play a part in why colorectal cancer is the fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States.

Be patient with those who haven't grown up

Q: Our 19-year-old daughter is dating a 19-year-old boy, who, in general, we like. He's not a partier, he doesn't smoke or drink, he's serious about his education and he has a rational career plan mapped out. Our daughter also is a responsible, level-headed girl. The problem is that the boyfriend's response to almost anything my daughter says is a cut or put-down, a dismissal of her accomplishment or mocking. She says his father does the same thing to him, his brother and their mother; so to him, it's "normal." Our daughter is an upbeat ...
