    👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️README: Internet Gaming Disorder is a very new area, and it falls under psychiatry. It takes a doctor with the appropriate training and time to make the diagnosis. If you or a loved one suspects something might be wrong, please see the doctor. Happy Medical Monday! 👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️

      It takes a Loving Parent 5 seconds to tell their kids to "Go Play Outside ! and be back in time for dinner !" Do Not purchase playstations or xboxes ! Get kids a basketball and a bicycle instead. :-)

                There was something underlying to cause this. From 5th grade to 10th grade i would stay awake for 5-8 days at a time during school and out. I even called myself off from school 36 times one year. I started working out too at 12 but i also wasnt hydrating at all until i was 16. I was even poisoned as a toddler and still survived. 25 now and still in golden health.

                            Did they shut off life support after the realization that neurological outcomes would be poor, or was he done in by the bouts of pneumonia? Either way, amazing video. Thank you.
