It is likely because: It is what you were used to. It sounds like you have made a lot of progress with your paranoia.

Mom has been causing arguments for no reason at all. No one else does this but her. I want to move out fast, but I have no money to move. What to do?

Arguments: Your situation sounds difficult. Are you working? Many people have consolidated households during the recent recession, resulting in adults & parents living together. In many cultures this is usual, even in a normal economy. During a neutral time you might calmly ask your mother what she's angry with you about. Genuinely listen to her response. Discuss this together and go from there. ...Read more

I have lumpy boobs and they've been like that since I got them. I know it's not cancer, but iis it a reason to worry for any other reason?

Just remain alert: You know your own breasts better than any physician; check thoroughly at the same time each month and bring any dominant mass to your physician's attention. Naturally lumpy "(fibro)cystic" breasts are not a cancer risk and today considered a non-disease. Decide with your physician about the appropriateness of imaging and comfort measures such as less caffeine or wearing a bra at night. ...Read more

I haven't been able to urinate as frequently as I usually do. It would take six to thirty hours before I am able to urinate. Have been drinking even more now and I don't feel dyhrated. Should I be concerned? Could it be from anxiety?

Drink more water: Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. If you even after drinking more water, you do not produce enough urine, it would be time to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Dyspareunia causes: A woman can experience painful sex or dyspareunia if there is not enough vaginal lubrication. Relaxation, more foreplay and a sexual lubricant can help with this. Other possible causes include vaginismus, vaginal infections, cervix problems, ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis and injury.

I have been taking cortisone shots for eight months now. It seems that their not working any longer!  what can I do to stay out of pain?

Noninvasive measures: I assume you are getting epidural steroid injections for back or neck pain. Your best bets would be a combination of biofeedback for control of nerve pain and muscle spasms, and pilates for strengthening of the spinal muscles. Additionally, aquatic therapy would be a more soothing form of back strengthening. Try to minimize medications. ...Read more

I have an 18 1/2 month old and a 7 month old is it normal to not have any sexual drive? I want nothing to to do with, if so is there anything i can do

Yes: This is very common and very hard for husbands to deal with at times, but not insurmountable. There is nothing likely wrong with you, but you have 2 children under 2 years of age and that can completely sap you strength and drive. I would talk to your ob/gyn for more info and don't feel guilty or blame yourself. ...Read more
