Do violent video games cause violence?

Do violent video games cause violence?

Controversial: That's a tough question to answer. Certainly playing violent games seems to be associated with violence, though that doesn't mean the games actually caused the violence in the real world. I would say that in my judgement, children who are already vulnerable may be more easily influenced, and that kids who play these kids of games constantly are more likely to be affected. ...Read more

Can lithium cause gasy feeling or indajetion?

GI effects possible: Since there can be nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea with lithium, especially early in treatment, it seems to me that a gassy feeling and indigestion could also occur.

How do I detatch an adult family member from a video game?

Possible addiction: Video games can be very compelling to the point of addiction. I am guessing that the adult in question does this frequently and is reluctant to leave the game. The ability to get this person to stop depends upon your place in the household pecking order. If you are higher you can probably be successfully verbally. It will require more force of will if you are lower on the ladder. ...Read more

I'm starting to give up at being single and 38- how can I stay in the game?

Never give up if you: Don't truly want to stay single - but don't try to force anything either. At 38 it's not even close to panic time. More than anything you have to believe in yourself and persue your life goals, single or not. That positive approach is more attractive and winning than almost anything else imaginable. The best relationships come when people are most comfortable with who they are and what they do. ...Read more
