I am a fan of vit c and taking extra during the cold-flu months can help. ...Read more
In many ways: Family members are more likely to themselves develop problems with addiction, as well as anxiety disorders and depression. People develop feelings of guilt, sadness, anger and many other emotions when a loved one develops addiction, and it is often family members who are treated shabbily and even abused by their addicted member. Enabling behavior - keeping the addict sick- is another consequence. ...Read more
If my cat bit off part of my blueberry eggo waffle, would i get sick if i happened to eat the rest of the waffle? I'm a normal healthy person.
Probably not: If your cat has been eating meat infected with the parasite toxoplasma gondii, there could be oocysts in its feces. (that's why pregnant women should not clean litter boxes.) if it's an indoor cat that you feed dry cat food and not fresh game, this should not be an issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

"compassionate care" is overrated. I don't know about the rest of the country, but in la/oc, health care is a business. Accordingly, i expect good outcome/output/advises given to me that's patient centered more than anything.
I hear "compassionate" by t
I : I hear you. For me, the best is a doctor who is extremely knowledgable, proficient and who listens and cares. If i needed general surgery, i would go for a doctor with exceptional surgical skills even if he or she didn't have much personality, over a nice surgeon with so - so skills. If i was going to see a therapist, i might want someone competent who appeared to really listen and care over the behavioral health provider who mostly had book knowledge going for them. With medical skills being equal, i think the average patient wants a provider who is compassionate too. You should not have to give up on medical skills/ knowledge/ communication skills and patient- centered care to get compassion. And vice versa. In other words, one should not be exclusive of the other. By the way, compassion in medicine does not need to equate to "mr. Roger's neighborhood". Compassion can also be expressed by candor and being tough. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
