How can I talk to my mom about my problems when she always makes fun of me?
Topic: Anonymous person writing a book
July 20, 2019 / By Hanley Question:
I go through periods of depression and anxiety. When I do, I move slowly, stutter, and avoid a lot of contact with people. I really want to get some sort of help or medication. My mom is the only person I can ask to bring me to a doctor, but she never takes me seriously. She mocks me and tells me I'm selfish. Is there anybody else I might be able to talk to? I'm not comfortable with talking to any family members or friends, or the school counselor. Something anonymous would be best.

The fact is that mental illness is just like any physical disorder. In this case the organ that is affected is the brain. With medication and psychotherapy people find relief from their emotional problems. This relief is made possible by the fact that the chemical imbalances in the brain that contribute to mental illness are restored. The individual is able to continue their daily life without interference from their moods. In fact, they are then better able to handle the stressors that plague all of us from time to time.
It is time we came out of the dark ages with regard to mental problems and admit that every one of us is capable of and probably will experience some type of emotional disorder sometime during the course of our lives.
I get extremely angry at people who make nasty comments about those with mental illnesses. If you ask me, I think they're plagued with mental problems and know it and therefore are projecting their garbage onto others! ;) When I point this out to the ignoramouses, they sure do throw quite the temper tantrum. Then I say "What's the matter? You can't control your temper? Sounds like you need anger management therapy!"
I deal with stigmatism in my own family too. When telling my brother for the first, actually we never discussed it again, time he began to chuckle and say "Oh boy". I was giving him detailed information and asked if he would like to write it down but he said "No thanks". I suggested a book, but he showed no interest. This is a college educated, succesful, high income, upper class man.
The first time I ever went into therapy I had to turn in the claim to some one in the office that I worked in and I was fired with in three weeks with the excuse that I was under productive. All this said, I consider myself to have a good life, but it angers and frustrates me that we are still dealing with this stigmatism. I sometimes wish all those who look down upon us would have a sudden panic attack.

Originally Answered: Anyone heard or have had problems with his cat having urinary tract problems using Wellness pet food?
ANY dry food, even the highest quality, even the ones that are supposed to be for urinary tract problems, can put your cat at risk for developing crystals. Dry foods by nature have to contain more carbs than are really good for cats, in order to have that crunchy consistency. The carbs themselves can contribute to the pH levels that are favorable for crystals to form. But the really big reason is that dry food contains too little water. Cats were originally designed for desert survival. Typically, small desert predators derive most of their liquid requirements through the bodies of prey animals. Because of this, cats' thirst instinct is not well-developed. Even offering a supply of fresh water via a pet drinking fountain may not be enough to compensate for this when feeding a cat a diet that primarily consists of kibble.
I have an article that will tell you even more, that I can send you in pdf form - email me if you are interested in reading it.
As for the dental care aspect of the dry/canned debate - dental decay in cats is caused by the same things that it is caused by in humans: too much carbs, feeding the bacteria in our mouths and causing the bacteria to flourish. Cats do not chew their dry food enough to get any real scrubbing effect from it, and dry food often contains more carbs than canned foods. Cats who eat dry food still need regular dental care. And my cats who have been on a mostly canned (once in a while I give them something crunchy for a treat, but it is not a regular part of their diet) for several years get good reports on their dental health - no cavities, no gum disease. I give them higher quality canned foods, such as the Wellness canned food, along with Innova, Eagle Pack, Natural Balance, and Felidae - that have a low carb content.
You will also find that higher protein, lower carb canned foods go a long way toward preventing other diet related cat health problems such as feline diabetes.
Is there any sort of Teen Help-line in your area ... a number you can call and talk out your problems over the phone??? that could help, but your best bet would be a school counselor since your mom seems to be so unhelpful. Or maybe the school nurse might be very helpful----especially since she has a medical background....... I'd give HER a try

i'm sorry that it really is taking position. you would possibly want to write them a letter obviously expressing your emotions. you may also write Dr. Phil, who's on television. He focuses on those forms of relatives complications. dad and mom should be tender, form and worrying. no individual is optimal. remember, each person have or have had to do some thing to advance ourselves. Teasing, bullying and different impolite and disrespectful habit does no longer help someone favor to modify or advance. i imagine that it really is staggering that you want to do activities. I a great deal appreciate athletes. i became not in any respect good at activities. move for it! Do it because you want to, no remember what all and sundry says, and also you would possibly want to a great deal take advantage of those activities because you try demanding to attain. ignore with regard to the haters. they're going to not in any respect outline who or what you're. look interior your self and be conscious the attractive, tender man or woman that you're. I say real the following quote typically, yet I obviously propose it. "you're fantastically and fantastically made by utilizing God." remember, God does no longer make blunders. merely human beings do. stay the most perfect you and be in activities, lecturers and as a pal. hunt down supportive human beings on your , in college or in different sensible circumstances. i'd be praying for you! might want to God bless you incredibly and miraculously for desirous to attend to a demanding and tricky project in a brilliant way!

Originally Answered: Can problems with your ears be a sign of heart problems?
You have problems similar to airplane ear and is not a sign of heart disease.You have symptoms of ear barotrauma.
If you experience severe pain or symptoms associated with airplane ear that don't go away with self-care techniques, you'll likely see your family doctor or a general practitioner first. However, in some cases when you call to set up an appointment, you may be referred immediately to an ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT, or otolaryngologist).
If you're experiencing a spinning sensation (vertigo), there may be damage to structures of your inner ear. Your ENT may suggest a hearing test (audiometry) to determine how well you detect sounds and whether the source of hearing problems is in the inner ear.
See your family doctor or a general practitioner first.Ear barotrauma.usually isn't serious and responds to self-care. Long-term complications may occur when the condition is serious or prolonged or if there is damage to middle or inner ear structures. Rare complications may include: Permanent hearing loss or Ongoing (chronic) tinnitus
Take care always! OIRAM
