Ashley Spencer had a guardian angel looking out for her in the skies over Pennsylvania. Two of them, actually. Spencer, 28, of Bristol Borough, Bucks County, was en route to Cleveland on Saturday for an appointment at the world-famous clinic in that city. She suffers from a rare auto-immune disease.Not long after her American Airlines flight rose from the tarmac at Philadelphia International Airport she was hit by a wave of seasickness. She headed for the restroom to get sick. Then she noticed the hives and became unable to catch her breath. Spencer quickly realized she was going into anaphylactic shock due to her peanut and tree nut allergy. She needed to get the Epi-pen from her purse up in first class, where her mother was sitting unaware of her daughter's medical emergency at the back of the plane. Spencer rushed out of the restroom. "I took about five steps and face-planted in the aisle," she recalled. "I had a pulse, but I stopped breathing for about 45 seconds." She lost … [Read more...] about Anaphylactic shock in the skies: Docs react quickly to save Bucks County woman
By Jeanne Phillips Published 12:00 am, Monday, May 7, 2018 Dear Abby: My boyfriend’s best friend asked if we could drive an hour to visit them and their children on Saturday. I’ve met her twice, and we have chatted a bit online. I have met her fiance only once. My boyfriend just told me she wants to take off with him to a bar for a birthday drink — or two — while I stay at home with her fiance. When I heard about it, I said I am not OK with being excluded. He understood and agreed they would take a walk around the block instead. When I texted her saying I didn’t want to be ditched, she insisted that I need to share him, and her fiance is looking forward to getting to know me better. She also tried to guilt me, saying it’s her birthday weekend. I think she’s rude. I’ve never been to their house, and I’m not friends with her fiance. When you invite a couple over, I believe the expectation is to socialize as a group, not break … [Read more...] about Best friend’s invitation loses appeal as details are revealed

By Tom Bray | [email protected] | Southern California News GroupPUBLISHED: April 18, 2018 at 7:57 pm | UPDATED: April 18, 2018 at 7:58 pm By Shefali Luthra and Rachel Bluth, California Healthline When Surgeon General Jerome Adams issued an advisory calling for more people to carry naloxone — not just people at overdose risk, but also friends and family — experts and advocates were almost giddy. This is an “unequivocally positive” step forward, said Leo Beletsky, an associate professor of law and health sciences at Northeastern University. And not necessarily a surprise. Adams, who previously was Indiana’s health commissioner, was recruited to be the nation’s top doctor in part because of his work with then-Gov. Mike Pence, now the vice president. In Indiana, Adams pushed for harm-reduction approaches, which included expanded access to naloxone and the implementation of a needle exchange to combat the state’s … [Read more...] about Nation’s top doc wants the overdose antidote widely on hand.
