  • Realizing my mental health, especially ADHD (or autism), means I struggle with daily living stuff/things I need to do to survive. My friends can't help and it's unfair of me to ask them.

    • When I have a cold or flu, I treat myself and never go to the doctors. Only when something hearty, such as loss of appetite (although in such cases, I often look for a way out on Canadian pharmacy ), sore throat, hearing loss, and so on. Sometimes I don’t always trust doctors because my sister was prescribed a lot of diagnoses which it turned out doesn’t have. So I think that if you already check with doctors, you should already turn to several

        • ADHD Assessment:

          The computer portion was today and the results revealed I have ADHD to the extreme, including really high inattentiveness scores.

          Explains so much, including career and relationship instability.

          • My friends baby went down for a nap this week and never woke up.

            looks like SIDS but they aren’t likely to ever know.

              • I feel good at 68 and consider myself in good health, but doctors have saved me from cancer 3 times and had my heart stop for minute and a half on the table before they brought me back. Last fall my hearing went from moderate loss to absolute stone deafness in about a month (very strange experience), and I will get cochlear implants this spring to restore a substantial amount of hearing. In the natural world I'd be a straggler, and the local predators would have taken me down by now. Medical science is indeed amazing. And I realize that is a problem in its own way.

                Edit: That seems an insensitive post after reading DGF's. I can think of nothing more painful than losing a child.

                      But please, have them investigate the cause.
                      If there's something preventable (genetics, environmental, allergen) please find out so they don't suffer this type of loss again.

                        • Jesus, that's awful.

                          A similar thing happened to a close friend's 3 month old, probably 4-5 years ago. Suddenly started siezing. They discovered that part of his lower intestine never developed fully. It necrotized, turned him septic, and he was effectively dead within a few hours. Life support kept him technically alive for a few days, but he had no chance of recovery and they pulled the plug.


                          The tiny casket at the wake was the worst thing I've ever seen.

                            Yeah, they’re looking. I had another friend this happened to years ago and despite the medical investigation, no clear answer ever came.

                            nothing makes the family feel any better, I guess? No way to feel good here

                              Not to make this about me, but I’m shook thinking about seeing a tiny casket this week. Never want to

                                Actually facing death certainly changes perspective on things doesn't it? Even the light hearted and mundane.
