Philnoir is completely spot on ....it takes time for the body to heal, I had the spinal fusion 4 years ago and it took a good 18 months to even feel like the human I was before the surgery.... Rehab is very important with any surgery, especially back surgery, I hope you have a long range plan with motion and rehab which will make all the difference in the ...
Drifter 0213 is correct that your husband needs deeper help. Has he been diagnosed with PTSD and does he go to therapy or is he on any medication to help with the PTSD. Many mental illnesses can mimic PTSD and your husband does need to be diagnosed by an qualified professional. As for yourself, there is nothing wrong with taking a time out and moving t...

I know that Opus has alot of good allergy sites that may really help you. For myself we stopped all smoking of any kind in the house, started using allergy free soaps and clothes softeners in the wash, changed the filters in the heating and cooling ducts on a more frequent schedule, kept the windows closed in the summer so dust and pollen would not blow in...

Reduce the urge to fight by adding more territorial space so the cats don't have to share climbing, hiding, and perching areas. Create a house of plenty with MORE toys, cat trees, litter boxes and feeding stations than the cats can use all at once. Your 8 year old is the Queen of the house and it may take awhile for this to resolve. I know kittens ...

i think specialmom is correct. but what he needs to remember if that is the case is that sperm can leak out even if not a full ejaculation. many babies are conceived by what we call fooling around, and i was wondering if the two of you have talked about birth control and other deeper issues. Good luck to you

I have noticed with my girls, that every once and awhile they do not get out of bed at all except for their gravy treat. and then go right back to bed. This is not a normal occurence for my girls, but the next day they are back to normal behavior...I sure wish they could either human talk with me or write on my chalkboard what is going on with them in most ...

i know you said you cannot afford a light box, but i have one from an online retailer and it does wonders. i did save for it and that was worth while saving for. while you are sitting in front of the light box, you can read, watch videos, chat with Facebook friends and in 20 to 30 minutes the light shuts off. I journal and read most days in front of it an...

With most cases of depression there is many times obsession with health, especially with sex health. From what i have read, most times HIV does not show up for years after the sexual encounter...it may be a good idea to return to that doctor who prescribed depression medicine to you and tell him/her that you don't think your dose is working and that you...

I do hope you find a better way to deal with your anxiety and depression then trying to drown it in alcohol....it is said in many AA meetings that those problems learn how to swim very well..... Have you ever considered AA or some other program or even a therapist to help you sort out your fears that may allow you to live a fuller life then inside a bottle...
