I : I think i may have responded to a previous question about this, if so i won't repeat that information. I recommend that you prepare yourself before you go in for your court directed mental health assessment. Ensure that you know the names of your medications and your doses. You might want to make a list for yourself of the things that you do independently to take care of yourself. For instance, do you take a bath or shower most days? Do you change the clothes you wear regularly? Do you brush your teeth at least daily? How many meals do you eat a day and who makes them? Are you able to self administer your medications? Can you handle your money? The evaluator may want to know if you have been having problems with violence or with the police. The evaluator usually needs to assess things like if you are a possible danger to yourself or anyone else or if you are able to take proper care of yourself. I also suggest that you discuss your concerns with your legal counsel. ...Read more

I have a bag of weed stuck in my throat. How can I get it out? And if II go to the hospital will i get in trouble?

I have a bag of weed stuck in my throat. How can I get it out? And if II go to the hospital will i get in trouble?

Priorities: Oh gosh. You have gotten yourself into a predicament. What is the priority here? Hopefully, you believe it will be saving your life. If the bag obstructs your airway, it could become life threatening. Is it better to die & have the bag of marijuana discovered at autopsy or would the better choice be to get medical intervention & then just take whatever consequences may or may not come your way? ...Read more

I am in a 60s dorm built for guys. Now it is coed and we have to share the showers and toilets with them. How can I overcome shyness?

I am in a 60s dorm built for guys. Now it is coed and we have to share the showers and toilets with them. How can I overcome shyness?

Not sure as: This is a bit different. Expecting you to share toilets and showers with strangers is not really shy...It is appropriately modest. I doubt you grew up in a house where anyone from your school could come and share your bathroom at any time. Are there times that more women than men are in the bathroom? Are there floors that are just male vs female? See more..... ...Read more

How do I get my meds refilled if I'm unable to get to my appt 45 mins away with no car and a 4 year old in the winter which is when I have all my pain?

Med refills: Ask your doctor for 90 day supply on the prescriptions and find out if your insurance or your pharmacy offer mail order service.

My niece has smallpox and I have a new born( 6days) can she catch the smallpox?Knowing we live in the same house.What can I do to keep the infant safe

Odd statement: Smallpox has not been reported in the world since 2 lab associated cases in 1980. Perhaps you mean chickenpox. Baby would be at low risk if you ever had them.If not, being in the same room for half an hour is enough time to expose the infant.Best clarify the issue with your local doc.If it is really smallpox, the world needs to know. ...Read more

My baby's almost a week old, when can I take him outside? And when can I leave the house to do things?

My baby's almost a week old, when can I take him outside? And when can I leave the house to do things?

No official time...: The american academy of pediatrics has no specific age cutoff before going in public. Airlines need a docs permission if newborn flying is less than 1 week. It's really up to you. The newborn's immune system isn't completely developed yet, so viruses and bacteria can be more harmful. Use common sense, and lots of hand washing. Make sure close contacts have their whooping cough booster (tdap). ...Read more

The : The good news: women have been sleeping on floors for thousands of years. Despite being uncomfortable for you, it should not harm your unborn baby. The bad news: you may be sore in the morning and it's not safe to take Ibuprofen while pregnant - only tylenol (acetaminophen). I hope your bed comes soon! ...Read more

Am i halucinating or am i just paranoid? I was recently removed from my mother's house where i was abused physically and mentally. I currently live with my grandparents in a nice safe neighborhood. They have alarms on the doors and cameras around the hous

Even : Even if you have just moved to a safe neighborhood, it doesn't mean that your fears are going to vanish. If you have a history of being mentally and physically abused it is likely to make it difficult to trust that you are safe. Many things can act as triggers- people, places, things, smells, flavors. Part of a post traumatic response is to be overly reactive to certain cues. Your fight or flight system is likely to be over-sensitive, so you may panic more easily. Additionally, if you experience a flashback, you may hear things that aren't there or you may mistake actual sounds for something else. You might see things that aren't there during an episode of reliving, or you might have an illusion. An example of an illusion is seeing an electric cord but mistaking it for a snake. Nightmares and difficulty with sleep are common. Checking and rechecking that windows are closed and that doors are locked is also common (especially at night). This does not mean that you are crazy. The mind has unusual ways of dealing with trauma. If you are not getting mental health care already, please let your grandparents know what you are experiencing so that they can get you good care with a pschologist and a psychiatrist. I wish you well during your healing process. ...Read more

My mother died in 1970 at that point it affected me greatly and I have never got over the loss of her i now feel i want to die to be with her again?

Help available: Please reach out for help to a mental health professional, friend, clergy, support group, anything to help you connect to others. You are a whole person w/out your mom physically here but you can't feel it. People adjust to such a loss and there is every reason to believe you can also. Peace and good health. ...Read more

In the nursery I work in a child projectile vomited in the same room I was in. I didn't touch the child or the vomit. How likely am I to get ill?

Lower than the kids: Most adults have experienced enough of these viruses in their life to be immune & lack of contact with the kid/debris would also make your risk minor. ...Read more
