It kinda was. But i didnt know what else to do
tell me a little of what you two talked about. Was this the friend you had lunch with yesterday?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
No this was a different friend. This friend knows a lot of my past. We talked about both my real mom and my mom figure and we talked about marty
Fantastic--really great. At least did it help some to share that with someone who cares about you?
Ask Your Own Health Question
I nearly fell of my chair when you told me this--it was a major step forward for you to have called her and to have asked her to come over
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I think you are being overdramatic
Not at all--maybe with the falling off the chair part, but I have been trying to get you to this point for months
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Well last night you told me not to let you down. That was the only thing i could do to avoid letting you down
it was exactly the right thing for you to do. I know you're crabby and having a lack of sleep issue, but did this at least show you that sharing and companionship does help defuse the bad feelings?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
it did
there was a time when you really didn't think I knew what I was talking about
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
you are correct.
Well, after taking that first step--that plunge, if you will, it gets easier
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I believe you.
Good. Maybe it'll help with your therapy sessions, too
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Maybe. Do you think if i physically felt better id be less depressed
Sure. Nobody can withstand the predictable depression that comes with chronic pain and feeling physically bad
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
you dont think its all in my head
Not at all but as I said before--it's kind of a vicious cycle. Pain and illness leads to depression and depression can make pain feel worse. The example I give my patients is when a mother with a bad back--chronic severe back pain--sees her two year old heading out onto the road with an oncoming semi heading for him, she runs to him and grabs him and pulls him out of harm's way, and, at least for that period of time, she is totally unaware of her back pain

How do i gain weight but not fat
Well, muscle is denser than fat so doing toning exercises--anaerobic muscle building exercises--actually allows you to gain weight but getting slimmer
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
What kinda of things do i have to eat
Gave you the best diet before--nutrient dense--fresh veggies and fruits, coconut milk, tofu or tempeh, and no more than three servings per week of lean meat, fish, or poultry
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Can i nap today
Sure but don't overdo it--an hour at the most
Ask Your Own Health Question

Do you get sick of my dumb questions?
No
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Do you think im fat
Fat isn't a medical term and again, I'd need your present height and weight to give you an opinion on any amount of weight I thought you should try to lose
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
67.25. 131.3
OK. Not even medically obese. Health-wise, your weight should be about 125
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
im like 6 pounds too fat
Don't use the word fat--that's your perception. You're just a little over your ideal weight

If you say so
I do.

Trial and error, really. For now, nothing fatty or spicy, no dairy, nothing citric like oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Ok. I know you hate when i ask medical
Questions like that. So thanks for answering
No problem with the medical but sometimes I just don't have anything to add
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Why do you suppose the dr who gave me the restoril didnt tell me that it can be
Addicting. And whybwould he give me enough fir 90 days
We are supposed to tell you about all the potential side effects of any drug and in the cases of something like this, we're supposed to tell you about the addictive properties and the withdrawal problems. And in general, no controlled substance should be written for more than one month at a time. He dropped the ball there

Just so you know i would have been more than happy with ambien then the temazepam.

Something just happen?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I went to town to pick the girls up cuz he roads suck. And my mom texted me to see where i was going. I texte her back and told her. She told me to let them drive and let them get in an accident cuz that will teach them a lesson
You're right--she's got major problems
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
The girls have done nothing to make her resent them like she does
You have to realize that she suffers somewhat from the same problems you do. Don't know much about her but when someone lashes out like that it's a way of redirecting the anger they feel towards themselves and from unresolved resentments. Not trying to justify her behavior but it really isn't caused by you or the teens

Not likely but always a concern with multiple antibiotics

Do i tell my therapist about the stong urges to take the pills? What else do i need to work on with my therapist
He already knows, doesn't he? If not, yes, of course. Next time you need to go over calling and talking to your friend, you're need to deal with you mother, and how you think you let the teens down
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
He knows that ive been thinking about it. He doesnt know that i have a plan. As for the teens, i was 22 when i got custody of them. What judge in their right mind would give 2 teenagers to a 23 year old
Obviously he thought you were best for them and I think he was right.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I dont know ifvi was the best thing for them. Why do you think i mainly thonk about taking pills at night
Depression is always worse at night and loneliness can set in
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I didnt know that
Just a fact
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
How come
Just the circadian rhythm coupled by the fact that most of us are less active at night, especially in bed at night. And we're starting to chat

Sorry.
OK--but again the page is getting very long
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
to recap, When i think about doing something stupid i call a friend. Have you ever thought of doing it? Do you think it makes me weak for trying it
to calling a friend. I have had the thoughts before but never considered acting on them. No--not weak but you just need to consider it a bad idea. Time to close the page--OK?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
