Why do single moms get a bad rap all the time? They work harder than most

Why do single moms get a bad rap all the time? They work harder than most

No respect: Single moms work very hard and have little time to socialize, have recreation, date, travel or even shop in the ordinary fun way. I don't think they get a bad RAP however. But since they frequently are part of the lower socioeconomic spectrum, their feelings and opinions are not usually respected. ...Read more

Why did pigeons get such a bad rap for being dirty and disease ridden?

Why did pigeons get such a bad rap for being dirty and disease ridden?

Below: Pigeons are in fact very clean; they LOVE to take baths and discard of the empty eggshells after the young hatch. Ferals may have the occasional case of feather lice or mites, but that goes for EVERY animal. Even we have microscopic mites in our eyebrows and eyelashes! There is evidence that pigeons are the least of our concerns in spreading diseases to us, especially the bird flu, as they are immune to all but a few more recent strains of it. You can get Pigeon Breeder's Lung from years of exposure to their feather dust/protein, but that also goes to just about any other bird or animal. Years of being in a barn can also result in a similar condition. It is treatable, and only people who breed pigeons are in danger of Pigeon Lung.
People probably got fed up with their droppings appearing in places they didn't want, and decided to hate the poor birds. The salmonella and avian flu scare in chickens apparently sparked the idea that people in cities full of feral pigeons were in danger of having it spread to them ...Read more

Pain on my back kinda raps around my rib but only when I’m moving a lot on my right side if I’m laying down or sitting no pain?

Pain on my back kinda raps around my rib but only when I’m moving a lot on my right side if I’m laying down or sitting no pain?

Costochondritis: The ribs have nerves that travel around your rib cage. You may have an irritation to the nerve.
Muscles wrap around the rib cage as well. Could have pulled a muscle, or a contusion- a trauma due to fall or blow to the rib area.
Laying down or sitting has no pain likely because of the positional nature of the problem. This usually is a benign thing, resolves by itself. If not see a Dr. In a few. ...Read more

The bad rap psychiatrists are getting for their "15 minute" appointments is a shame, if many patients start treatingthemselves over internet. Thoughts?

Self- care using the: Internet is a pretty risky business. Many psychiatrists are willing to see patient's for longer sessions but the individual's insurance company often will not foot the bill. I am a psychiatrist ; I do therapy/ medication sessions that are up to 90 minutes long. Why? I do it because my system allows it ; I do it if medically indicated.

Would rapper Eazy E have been save-able with modern medicine? He presented with aids, pneumonia, and t cell count of only 14. But this was in 1995

HIV AIDS: That is a very low T-cell count. But if he had no serious intercurrent infections it seems likely that he could be treated effectively in this day and age. Tremendous advances in care and management of HIV, but AIDS still carries risk for mordidity and mortaility. So it may depend on the pneumonia that you mentioned and how severe etc. ...Read more

24wks prgnt, will prentl yoga flip my baby around or rap umbilical cord around his neck? Iam doing these exescies but a fam. Member scared me. Help!

NO: Prenatal yoga will not flip your baby around, nor will it wrap your baby's cord around its neck. If a family member suggested either of these they are ill advised! Your OB MAY have some restrictions on certain poses in yoga, namely inverted poses but only late in pregnancy so ask about these. Yoga is fantastic exercise, relaxation for pregnant moms. Yoga breathing prepares you for labor. ...Read more

Effexor (venlafaxine) XR 150mg isn't working for me. Have been on it for a yr. I hear withdrawals are bad, i'd have to switch to prosac? And rapper off Effexor (venlafaxine) slow

Effexor (venlafaxine) XR 150mg isn't working for me. Have been on it for a yr. I hear withdrawals are bad, i'd have to switch to prosac? And rapper off Effexor (venlafaxine) slow

Why would my testies hurt so bad that I can't walk when I have sex or even get aroused? They hurt when I have sex and /or get aroused, and cause "e.D.". The pain raps around my entire right side hip. It feels as if it is near my prostate area or deep in

Why would my testies hurt so bad that I can't walk when I have sex or even get aroused? They hurt when I have sex and /or get aroused, and cause "e.D.". The pain raps around my entire right side hip. It feels as if it is near my prostate area or deep in

From: From your description, it sounds like you had a traditional appendectomy. If you have sex too early after surgery, you could put strain on your wound and the surrounding abdominal muscles. If your appendix developed an absess or ruptured, this could delay your healing time. The surgeon should have given you post-operative instructions such as: don't lift more than 10 to 15 pounds for four to six weeks after surgery. The instructions most likely addressed when you could return to sexual activity. If you were having sex sooner than two weeks after a standard appendectomy especially if it is causing pain, it is most likely too soon. It sexual activity is causing you this much pain, you are not ready for this activity. Please contact your surgeon to get more specific advice because he/ she knows what they discovered inside your abdomen and can also examine you if there is concern about a complication. ...Read more
