I think my nephew has aspergers?

I think my nephew has aspergers?

Maybe he does: There's no magic cure for Asperger's. I'm going to assume that Junior isn't just withdrawn and awkward because Dad's an ineffective model / teacher. Asperger's offers many advantages especially in the computer age. The key is getting guidance learning how to talk to people, read people, choosing a strength or endurance rather than coordination or ballgame sport, and achieving to be respected. ...Read more

My dad has had OCD since he was 14. When i was 11 my counselor said i had OCD symptoms but very different ones from my dad. Did i get OCD from my dad?

My dad has had OCD since he was 14. When i was 11 my counselor said i had OCD symptoms but very different ones from my dad. Did i get OCD from my dad?

To a degree, yes: It's likely that you inherited some of the genes influencing ocd from your dad. Like many behavioral and psychological traits influenced by genes, ocd is "polygenic"--many different genes affect its appearance, strength and configuration of symptoms. So you probably received a mix of those genes, some being expressed from your mom's side, some from his. ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend has sex in April and ever since my stomach has felt very bloated . I worry over everything and I think I am just worrying help. ?

Me and my boyfriend has sex in April and ever since my stomach has felt very bloated . I worry over everything and I think I am just worrying help. ?

Not pregnant?: Assuming pregnancy test was negative (at least a few weeks after sex), it's unlikely that bloating alone is serious. Sexual infections usually cause other symptoms like discharge, genital sores, etc. Viruses like HIV & hepatitis B don't typically cause bloating. However, further sex can certainly result in pregnancy with all its risks, as well as serious infections. Please be very careful. ...Read more

Umm my girlfriend has a slowwel gland and i kissed her do i have it now cuz my throat just recently started hurting?

Possibly: This is a reasonable assumption, although devoid of proof unless both you and your gf are seen and cultured and this is actually Strep. If this is viral, again without proof there is only a high likelihood that she transmitted it to you, but possibly not. ...Read more

I have been gettin horrid thoughts an been quite nasty to my husband last night i slapped him?

Feel out of control?: Thoughts like you are having are terribly uncomfortable. Perhaps you wonder if you would carry these beyond a slap - not to imply that a slap is ok. Whenever you are having thoughts about harming someone - including yourself, it's time to get some professional help. Talk to your doctor. They can evaluate you/refer for counseling. Do not hesitate to call 911 if things are moving out of control! ...Read more
