    Adding accountability to the practice vocabulary


    Putting It In View By Dianna E. Graves, COMT, BS Ed

    Before I begin, I must apologize to the caretakers of the Liberty Bell for any potential new damage that may have happened when I went ballistic on a recent business trip to Philadelphia.

    I worried all evening that I would see on the 10 p.m. local television news that there had been aftershock damage that had occurred to the bell and a second crack had suddenly occurred!

    Having a conniption

    On Friday afternoon, I literally had a “conniption fit” while sitting in my hotel room. I always wondered what a conniption fit was and now I know. It’s defined as a sudden, violent emotional, outburst generally triggered by shocking news or an unexpected turn of events.

    What could have caused this rapid explosion of emotion while on my trip? 

    While I was out of the office, the largest clinic in our system had hit an iceberg, full speed ahead, and was taking on water!
