Why do some new houses make me sick when I go to view them?

Why do some new houses make me sick when I go to view them?

Toxic chemicals: New houses are pretty air tight in construction. Add to that all the glues, varnishes, synthetic chemicals in carpet, cabinets, laminate flooring, etc and you walk into a chemical soup of toxins that can damage your health. Your sensitivity makes me worry that you already have a load of toxins on board and your detox systems may not be doing to well. See a functional med doc to evaluate and treat. ...Read more

People keep telling me they think i'm bipolar and I seem to have all the symptoms, where do I go to get tested?

People keep telling me they think i'm bipolar and I seem to have all the symptoms, where do I go to get tested?

Seek expert help: The primary way to evaluate someone for a diagnosis of bipolar disorder is through a specialist such as a psychiatrist or psychologist. A self-questionnaire can give you a clue to possible illness but does not tell you if you have it. Diagnosing bipolar disorder is extremely difficult and should be left to specialists. A primary care physician may provide you with a referral. ...Read more

Talk to someone: You are at a rough time in life. Hormones running crazy, wanting to be an adult, but not quite ready.

Why when an authority figure tells me what to do, do I feel angered? Especially if they yell or talk down to me, it makes me want to rebel. Why?

Childhood Trauma: Often children who grow up in homes with a parent(s) who are very rigid, punitive, controlling, and restrict verbalizing feelings/ asking questions (authoritarian parent) will either engage in rebellious behavior as adolescents/young adults. Growing up in this type of home restricts a child's ability to express his/her frustration or explain his/her behavior out of fear of negative consequence. ...Read more

In hospital, want to go home , feeling so much guilt for what I feel and where I am, I just want to go home so everyone can forget me?

In  hospital, want to  go home , feeling so much guilt for what I feel and where I am, I just want to go home so everyone can forget me?

Don't sound ready: Before you're discharged, I'd hope for you to turn the corner on that guilt. It's okay to have regrets especially once you have ideas of how to make other choices and even amends, but guilt has got to be left behind. It does no one any good. I've rarely had a patient who wanted to behave badly. They did the best at the time even if it was very bad. Others will forget or not on their own. Get well. ...Read more
