I repeat words in my head all the time. Is that bad?

I repeat words in my head all the time.  Is that bad?

Not Necessarily: It is pretty common to repeat words, phrases, or songs.

I am more worried about the pain in your head that you describe as severe! you need to be seen in the emergency room immediately. ...Read more

Neck pain: Sounds like you are another of the thousands of victiims of acute torticollis i.e. wry neck. You are young, so it is very unlikely to be arthritis. IF You do not have any pain or weakness in your arms then you might try some neck mobility execises (many available on the internet) if this does not help then Medical Massage Therapy might be your answer ...Read more

I masturbate with my shower head at least 2 times a day every day, sometimes more. Is this bad for me? do I have a problem? I'm just confused.

I masturbate with my shower head at least 2 times a day every day, sometimes more. Is this bad for me? do I have a problem? I'm just confused.

Not necessarily bad: There is nothing problematic or wrong with masturbation with a few possible exceptions: 1. Make sure you're not physically hurting yourself--depending on the force of the water, you could wash away mucus and cause abrasions and pain. If it hurts, don't do it. 2. If it is upsetting you that you masturbate so often, or if it's impacting work or your social life, think about talking with a therapist. ...Read more
