I don't smoke but I'm curious about weed smoking because people argue about it when I tell them any kind of smoke is bad! Is weed bad?

I don't smoke but I'm curious about weed smoking because people argue about it when I tell them any kind of smoke is bad! Is weed bad?

Bad and maybe good: Unfortunately most info on 'weed' is generated by government funded research. If the researchers find positive aspects they say they won't report them due to the threat of not being funded the next time. Until weed is legal we won't know the real story. Many cultures claim it as a sacred healing herb. The us pharmacopeia, pre-1950's, included it as a treatment for a variety of illnesses. ...Read more

Why do they argue about the chikfila chicken place? My teen son is very upset.

Media Bias: There are media & politicians who are quick to criticize anyone that doesn't follow their views. The company closes its stores on sunday & follows christian beliefs is branded as out of touch or intolerant by politicians who want to gain notoriety of favor with their political base.

I feel lost for words when I argue or insulting someone, intimidation is a worry for me and I fear. How to get through this?

Remain calm: When driven by anger or hostility, we get a response from adrenaline release and can get flustered or react without thinking. A better approach is to remain calm in the face of feeling threatened and walk away from the confrontation. Sometimes acting rashly or impulsive can cause more harm and lead to escalating violence. ...Read more

When I argue with my spouse or get upset quickly, I vomit every time sometimes more than once what can be happening?

When I argue with my spouse or get upset quickly, I vomit every time sometimes more than once what can be happening?

Situational vomiting: Vomiting reflex is controlled by two units in the brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from the GI tract, other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only the GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, ; taste. Thus, vomiting apparatus responds to a variety of GI ; brain inputs, like emotions. ...Read more

Why do I argue with myself in my head, and usually move my lips while doing this which creeps my friends and family out?

Why do I argue with myself in my head, and usually move my lips while doing this which creeps my friends and family out?

Not entirely unusual: Many people tend to think aloud when in dilemmas. This helps them rationalize the problem. While you are not speaking out loud, you are wording your thoughts through 'silent' speech and while this may worry some family member, they can be reassured that this is only a habit, and it helps you to think things through. Good luck! ...Read more

Sometimes when I get really mad and I argue I cry for no reason like if I was a child. Why is that? And how can it be controlled?

Brain Development!: Talking things through and getting enough exercise & sleep may be enough to help with the adolescent ability to recognize other people's emotions and deal with what may be normal "outbursts! " a "noisier brain, " as we say! But, have a conversation with your pediatrician and let him/her know of your concerns. There may be other, more troubling, causes & though rare, should be considered w her/him! ...Read more

Is it abuse for daycare workers to argue in front of children?

Is it abuse for daycare workers to argue in front of children?

No: I would not consider an argument that daycare workers have amongst each other abuse. Inappropriate, yes. Adults should refrain from arguing in front of children. It is inappropriate for daycare professionals to be doing this. It may be scaring the children who are witnessing this, and teaching them inappropriate behaviors. ...Read more

Sexual intercourse 3x a wk. (57 yrs) partner (53 yrs) says it is too much always argue on the frequency need new compatible partner?

Sexual intercourse 3x a wk. (57 yrs) partner (53 yrs) says it is too much always argue on the frequency need new compatible partner?

Sexuality: If your reason to have a partner is primarily to have sexual interactions - then it sounds like this is not likely to be satisfying. If on the other hand you want a partner to enhance your life in other ways (i.e., emotional intimacy, dialog, enjoying each other's company etc.) than it may merit bridling your strong sex drive. If you tend to find sex addictive then examine yourself. Like wise, >>. ...Read more

Will I be able to argue for C-section at 37 weeks?

Will I be able to argue for C-section at 37 weeks?

Not likely: The decision regarding when to have a c/section is made on a case by case basis, as a joint decision, between you and your surgeon (since you both must be present for surgery.) The American Congress of Ob/Gyns recommends that elective c/sections not be performed prior to 39 0/7 weeks. If there is a medical reason such as diabetes or hypertension, the c/section may be performed earlier. ...Read more

Argue? /Dicuss?: I don't have all the information but I think a discussion is a better word. There are reasons people need c/s's and it sounds like someone really feels you need one. If you have a very large baby and the chance of a shoulder dystocia is great, then the person wanting you to have the c/s may be concerned because liability.. ...Read more

At physical they always note my bmi. It is always over 30 plus. I argue with doc why he puts it in my chart. I am under 10% body fat bodybuilder?

At physical they always note my bmi. It is always over 30 plus. I argue with doc why he puts it in my chart. I am under 10% body fat bodybuilder?

Don't think about it: Doctors record your normal weight, even when it is normal. We record normal heights, normal blood pressures, and lots of normal findings. Recording a normal bmi is part of that (and the government wants it recorded as preventive care, due to other's - not yours - weight problems). Medical data is going electronic, so bmi is now calculated from height and weight, regardless of what the doctor does. ...Read more

I have had 7 concussions. ...I have head aches...I argue a lot and my emotions change. ...Do I have a serious issue.....

Possible: We know from studies of professional athletes that post-traumatic encephalopathies are due to repetitive head injuries. Perhaps your emotions are getting labile, and, if you have memory and organizational problems to boot, seek help, and get evaluated. Sooner the better, and even if this winds up being only post-traumatic stress. ...Read more
