My daughters, ages 2&4 were in a serious car accident 10 months ago and don't seem to have any physical injury. Any symptoms we should be looking for?
Car Accident: I'm so sorry about the accident. I'm sure that was a very scary time for all of you.

Not a good idea: When you say you are swallowing weed smoke, I assume you mean that you are gulping air which contains that smoke.

Also, absorption of chemicals in smoke may have undesirable health effects. ...Read more

Is it true that you don't get resuscitated if your in an accident if your on the organ donation list?
Completely false: People are cared for - resuscitated - to the fullest extent possible, in all circumstances. It is only once brain death has been declared, or once a decision was made to withdraw artificial support, that organ donation will be raised as a consideration. Though rumors abound, they are untrue. I am personally a part of "the system" and have sufficient confidence in it to be an organ donor myself. ...Read more
How can try to potty train my child (at 5yo) who's having accidents and just doesn't want to go on his own?
Assist/ Reward: One drag on toilet training is the mixed messages a kid gets if you follow him around asking if he needs to go. If he doesn't, he is sad he can't produce, if he needs to go & you are not there asking, he may not be able to hold it until you do. (again sad). If you tell him you will help, he picks the time (which is crucial)& you assist. (no sadness).A reward system helps motivate & can work overnight. ...Read more
I'm going through memory loss and I don't know why. I haven't been in any accidents either. What's going on?
Many things: Memory is a very complex process and as such, any unusual changes in ones memory can be due to complex reasons. Accidents can be one. Depression is often over-looked as a cause of poor memory recollection. There are special cognitive tests that can quantify memory loss-into 'long-term" or "short term" or even the ability to create new memories. Other organic causes (disease) should be ruled out. ...Read more
