She is rude, disrespectful and can't close doors, cabinets or lights off, clean up after herself or lock the house when she leaves. She wants to do the very few chores we ask her to do with a "I will, later" they don't get done until day 3 after several times attempting to work with her. She parties and is making careless choices sexually. My husband and I are so done with her behavior which has gotten better than when she was 13 but she is so hard to live with.

I am a male 48 years old and my wife is 27. We are trying to

Hi I am a male 48 years old and my wife is 27. We are trying to conceive a child and are getting assisted help. Our concern is that I am my age and that this can give our child much higher risk of becoming autistic, adhd, bipolar, schizophrenic, lower iq, learning difficulties and so on. I do not suffer from any of these illnesses and my wife neither, but I have a brother who is schizophrenic. There are lots of information online on the danger of these, where there are statements like, 3,5 times more likely, 13 times more likely. Could you tell me in precentage what the odds are that this would happened? It is hard for us to analyse these 3,5 times etc. If the percentage is too high we will not go for this, or what is your recommendation? Sincerely

My doctor put cyclothymia on my sick note reason absence

My doctor put cyclothymia on my sick note for my reason for my absence from work. My employer says that because cyclothymia was the reason for me being too poorly to work there is concerns about my safety to myself, other adults and the children I work with so I have to be supervised at all time. I was assessed for bi-polar about 6 years ago and was found not to be bipolar. I have now recently been diagnosed with adult ADHD by two separate psychiatrist. Is cyclothymia a symptom of ADHD or should I seek another psychiatric assessment to clarify or rule this out. Cyclothmia has been on my medical records for many years, I think it was put on there when I was referred for the Bipolar assessment. How would I be a danger to myself and others at work.

I have a very itchy rash on the backs of my thighs and

Hello, I have a very itchy rash on the backs of my thighs and palm of my left hand. Discovered two mornings ago. The rash is pink-red, raised, not crusty. I have not been in contact with any new substances/toiletries/foods, and not allergic to anything that I'm aware of. I'm currently taking Topamax 100mg daily for migraine, Adderall XR 10mg daily for ADHD and Amoxicillin 250mg twice daily for severe cystic acne that was unresponsive to other treatments(isotretinoin twice). My doctor can't see me until the 19th and I'm hoping to find out if this is fungal/bacterial/systemic or if I should just go to the emergency room. Thanks for your time
