Y is for…Youtube!

While I am not a Youtuber, I do occasionally post videos on there and watch videos on there. If you do not know what a Youtuber is, here is the definition according to Oxford Dictionary online.

Youtuber: frequent user of the video-sharing website YouTube, especially someone who produces and appears in videos on the site.

They even have “concerts” of Youtubers and they are quite popular with the youth of this day and age. So…here’s a book trailer for my Between the Bleeding Willows (Book 1 of Demon Hunters series) created by Stolen Glances and uploaded to Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBICLCIVERw

And here is one of my favorite Youtube videos (cursing in the video, so no little ones please):

And for those with little ones, Youtube has some videos, such as the one I listed that are not good for children to watch. BUT, they have created Kidstube, which is a safer alternative.

Ok, there is a shortage of cool X words to choose from so I went with Xanax. I used to be a pharmacist so I know a bit about the med that is often prescribed for anxiety.
What you may NOT know is that many people have stayed on this med long term and developed a tolerance and addiction to it. When they take Xanax they “feel normal”. When they don’t take it, they feel anxious and everything feels harder. But soon they find 1 pill is not enough to get the same effect so they up the dose to 1 1/2 pills. And so on and so forth.
Xanax is a controlled substance with abuse potential. It is meant to be used for a short period of time, such as, for an airplane trip, or after a loved one has passed away. If you or someone you know has anxiety and has been on Xanax for longer than 2 weeks, they should speak with their doctor about beginning talk therapy with a counselor and switching to an antidepressant/anti-anxiety that is not controlled and can be used long-term, such as Lexapro.
