Here are the parallel parking steps
(Before parallel parking, make sure there is room for car to fix between both cars. The driver can drive next to the middle space to see if the car will fit into that spot).
1. The first thing to do is to pull your car next to the front car, 1 to 2 feet away from the front vehicle. (Make sure the driver's rearview mirror matches with the front car rearview mirror).
2. If parking to the right, put car in reverse and turn the steering wheel all the way to the right (before moving, make sure there is no pedestrian or oncoming traffic behind vehicle. Best to look from the right shoulder while glancing to the left at times when reverse parking)
3. When the passenger's mirror is behind the front car license plate, start turning the wheel all the way to the left (new drivers are almost home)
(Option 2: While the first method mentioned above is the best technique to me, new drivers can use parallel parking steps 2 and 3 as alternatives. For example for step 2, new drivers can turn the wheel one full turn to the right, and for step 3 make two full turns to the left, which is a technique that many drivers use. Sometimes for Option 3, the drivers start by turning the wheel all the way to the right, straight out the wheel (when at 45 degree angle), and then finish the parking off by turning it all the way to the left. I suppose the drivers use Option 2 & 3 technique so they will not over turn the car they sharply turn the wheel to the right, which is a technique used for angle parking).
4. Next and final step is to even or straightening the car by turning it to the right by having the wheels toward the curb
Friendly reminder: try to be at least 8 to 12 inches away from the curb once finished with parallel parking.
Before parallel parking with real cars, parallel park with big orange cones until you get the hang of it. If helpful, new drivers can start parallel parking without the cones for confidence builder. When new drivers are learning to park with their teachers, it may be best to ask them which direction to turn the steering wheel instead of them telling drivers as they go, which may eliminate confusion.

This disease can cause inflammation (great pain) in the joints, heart, skin, and brain, which initially starts two to four weeks after infection to the throat. Symptoms include involuntary movements, stiffness, non itchy rash, painful joints, and fever.
The heart normally associated with Rheumatic Fever, which is known as Rheumatic Heart Fever. RHF can lead to heart failure and infected valves. If Acute Rheumatic Heart is untreated it develops in 3 percent of people. This condition is high in the developing world. Rheumatic Heart Disease may happened after frequent episodes of Rheumatic fever or even a single ARF attack. Other risk factors pertain to malnutrition and poverty.
This disease might be triggered due to bacterial substances. Those with strep throat should take antibodies to avoid and fight off the infection. Also, penicillin is also an preventive treatment for Rheumatic Heart Fever. It is difficult to treat individuals once they have RHF.
Treatment includes getting X-rays, MRIs, synovial fluid analysis, using a legalize form of steroids by physician, taking DMARDs medication, painkillers, ant-inflammatory drugs, splints, braces, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and dietary changes, such as lack of fatty foods and alcohol consumption.
Symptoms of RA includes excruciating pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints, which may be described as a person's hands being glued to a burning iron. Other symptoms include fatigue, morning stiffness, loss of appetite, loss of joint function, loss of weight, fever, malaise, and etc. RA might be mistaken for gout arthritis since both conditions attacks the joints, which can lead to tophi (lumps) present in the skin. RA may also be linked to heart attack, strokes, and lymphoma, which is quite rare.
Here are common causes of Gout Pain
Drinking alcohol (e.g. BEER)
Obesity (having a body mass greater than 35 increases gout threefold)
Hypertension/high blood pressure (e.g. 150/100)
Being exposed to lead (lead poisoning)
Seafood (e.g. shrimp, crab, lobster, fish, and scallop)
Fructose sweet drinks (sugar fruit juices and icys)
Breads (please avoid eating a lot of sandwiches)
Meat (e.g. steak, sausage, and ground beef)
Aspirin and niacin contain acid
(Please heed for healing creams and rubbing alcohol that causes inflammation, which may worsen gout).
Treatment to Relieve Gout
Icing and elevating injured joint (use ice box or ice bottle)
Vitamin C (e.g. oranges, grapefruit, and lemon)
Drinking 8 to 12 cups of water
Mixing apple cider vinegar with water (drink 2-3 times a day)
Warm water with baking soda (please drink at least every 4 hours)
Please note that TB can range from latent, no symptoms, whereas, active TB consist of a host of symptoms and infections. People who have TB may develop TB, which means 1 to 10 latent infections progress into active TB. Unfortunately, 50 percent of people died from active TB after starting at with latent TB, which is similar to first developing AIDS when the conditions forms into AIDS.
When a person has TB, they must take antibiotics probably for the rest of their lives. However, antibiotic resistance is a huge concern in multiple drug resistance tuberculosis infection, which means other treatment (vaccine/needles) is required besides the antibiotics.
To properly diagnose patents, doctors uses radiology chest x-rays, tuberculosis skin test and blood test.
80 percent of the population in the African and Asian countries tested positive for TB. Whereas, 5 to 10 percent of the US population are TB positive. One third of the population is said to be affected with TB. 13 million cases of TB were documented in 2013. TB accounts for 1.3 to 1.5 million deaths annually. Due to weak immune system from HIV or AIDS, people are at greater risk of developing TB.
Treatment includes proper care of the foot, exercising, avoid gaining weight, healthy diet, avoid tobacco use, and surgery to remove the excessive weight gain.
Most people with type one diabetes usually take a insulin injection to produce in order to help their bodies produce insulin. Whereas, people with type two diabetes take oral medication with or without the insulin needle, which is found in people who are overweight. Finally, gestational diabetes usually resolves on itself for pregnant women who have gestational diabetes, but medication and treatment might be recommended for them as well.
Diabetes are divided into three subtypes type one diabetes, type two diabetes, and gestational diabetes, which are found in some pregnant women. Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes, which accounts for 90 cases. Unfortunately, diabetes contributes to 1.4 to 4.9 million deaths per year. Equal number of males and females can suffer from diabetes. It is estimated that 387 million people have diabetes in the world, which accounts for 8 percent of the adult population. Shockingly, this diabetic population will rise to 592 million by 2035. The USA spent over 245 billion dollars toward research in 2012; whereas, the entire planet sent 614 billion dollars to discover a cure to end diabetes.
Symptoms for cerebral aneurysm are fatigue, dizziness, double vision, speech problems, loss of balance, and loss of perception. Whereas, signs of ruptured aneurysm are severe headaches, double vision, loss of vision, neck pain and stiffness, and pain above and behind the eye.
Risk factors include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, alcoholism, tobacco use (smoking), and mature age.
To treat eclampisa, pregnant women should exercise while giving birth, take hydralazine (for hypertension), use aspirin, calcium supplementation, and may require having a c section.
Unfortunately, 2 to 8 percent of pregnant women have pre-eclampsia throughout the world. It was reported that 29,000 pregnant women sadly died, which is down from the 37,000 deaths in 1990, so that is some good news. People may get pre-eclampsia confused with eclampsia, which is a life threatening condition associated with seizures that can become fatal. While pre-eclampsia is a serious condition, it is not as serious as eclampsia. However, if left untreated, pre-eclampsia can developed into eclampsia.
I did not forget about the men. They have it almost as difficult as the females. For the next nine months, they will experience their most pregnant women being emotional at times, which may lead to frustration and confusion. Also, most pregnant woman may eat more than usual, which will cause the man of the house taking back and forth trips to the supermarket for the next 180 days.
After the pregnancy is over with, there are the risk of some females developing depression. For example, Gwyneth Paltrow talked about feeling blue after she gave birth to her second child; however, she overcome her depression, which means that depression comes and goes.
I am not hear to scare future mothers or fathers who are thinking about giving birth to a child. I am hear to make life easy for men and women who are ready to bring a new life into this world. Let's get started.
The pregnancy stage is developed into three stages, which are called trimester, 9 months being divided into three periods. The first trimester (1-3 months) is when the embryo, future baby, is developing. During the second trimester (4-6 months), the embryo is transforming into the fetus. The pregnancy becomes more noticeable during this stage since the baby is growing inside the mom's womb, which means the mother's stomach is noticeably larger. The final trimester is when moms reach the peak of their pregnancy, which takes place between 7 to 9 months.
Once females tell their men those two famous words, ladies should monitor their diet by taking care of themselves. For example, pregnant woman should not drink too much caffeine (if they are heavy coffee drinkers), no smoking, and no drinking when they are with child. These unhealthy behaviors, particularly drinking and smoking, can harm the newborn's health by potentially leading to premature birth, down syndrome, miscarriage and so on.
Also, once men find out their women are pregnant, they should call their doctor to schedule an ultrasound, which was created by Margaret Crane, for those wondering. If women believe they are pregnant they should wait a few days to two weeks after intercourse. False pregnancy test may be based on women being tested too early, e.g. having a test done after intercourse. It might be wise to have a second pregnancy test done to make sure that the mother is having an infant.
New parents may not know the ideal date having an ultrasound. Some future parents believe they should wait until the mother stomach is enlarging, which can be a few months after parents discovered their pregnancy. However, some parents believe the sooner ultrasound the better. Some parents may use the ultrasound as a double checking tool to see if the mom is really pregnant. Even though the two lines reveal pregnancy during the test (one line indicates non pregnancy on test), soon to be parents might make sure they are having a baby by having an ultrasound done. While the pregnancy test may reveal pregnancy, an ultrasound may showcase something different, which is quite rare since pregnancy test is usually a reliable tool in determining pregnancy. When in doubt, it is best for parents to call their doctors to see when is the perfect time to schedule an ultrasound. Most parents are excited about having an ultrasound because the device helps determine the sex of the parents' baby.
To help mothers with their giving labor to their baby, they should attend Lamaze classes to help with their breathing when they are about to deliver their child. Perhaps, it is ideal for parents to find a hospital that will allow them to give birth to their babies without difficulty. Parents should not expect for hospital to help them deliver their child without scheduling appoint to do so. It might be best to discuss delivery arrangements with the same doctor who gave the parents the ultrasound. In other words, if parents are comfortable with their doctor who gave them their ultrasound then that should be the doctor who helps them deliver their baby. However, if the ultrasound doctor is unable to be their medical doctor during delivery, please ask the ultrasound doctor for referrals for a doctor who has experience in child birth.
One final message, for future mothers planning to raise their children. Please keep in mind, when pregnant, they may develop hypertension (high blood pressure), gout (arthritis) and eclampsia, which is a rare yet life threatening condition. For more information, please read on articles or consult with your physician about this condition. While pregnancy might be a stressful times for mom and dad, it can also be an enjoyable period, which changes the couples life forever. Therefore, please have a safe, happy, and exciting pregnancy. God Bless to the pregnant women and their babies.
Risks of developing ringworms are sharing clothes, not cleaning blanket, sheets, wearing the same hats, not washing rags, touching animals on the bald spot or scalp. Vital reminder is to please wear sandals or water shoes when going swimming or using the restroom at home.
Treatments for Dermatophytosis is using antifungal creams (e.g. Golden Bond), taking oval medication, rubbing mustard seeds, vegetable, and coconut oil. If the ringworms persist for 1 month (unusual) please consult with your physician ASAP.
According to the Weather Channel, it takes 10 minutes for a car to heat up to 20 degrees; at 90 minutes, the automobile will sore at almost 140 degrees, which is lethal for even adults. When the human body reaches 104 degrees, they can experience heat stroke; if they body heats up at 107 degrees, they will most likely experience permanent damage or even death. Children's body heat up a lot faster than adults 3 to 5 times when they are trapped inside a vehicle, which means youngster's body are a lot more sensitive than grown ups.
Therefore, it is extremely imperative not to leave kids alone in locked car during the summertime, not even for a split second. It is vital not to leave a child alone in the car even if the AC is on, which is almost as bad. Parents and adults should take children everywhere they go especially during the summertime, and even late spring.
As important children are, the same thing goes for elderly people and animals, which is not to leave them alone in a humid vehicle. To play it safe, parents should take teens (13-17) who look like adults indoors during late spring, summer, and early fall whenever it is hot outside. It is the saddest thing in the world to see a child trapped in the car, which is viewed as child neglect and abuse.
If an adult sees a child locked in a car, please call for help, e.g. cops or fire department, and then try to open the door. If not luck, rescuer may need to smash car with a hard object; please make sure kid stays away from the glass. (If unable to break car window, ask kids to unlock the car themselves so they can escape the vehicle). If parents returns to the car and yells at helper to stop, please do as instructed, no matter how frustrating the situation is. However, do not leave until the parent opens up the car for his or her child. Before passing judgment, please ask parent what caused them to leave child in car in the first place. Sometimes, bad parenting isn't the result of car deaths among children; some parents were busy and forgot that kids were in backseat. Afterward, helper can let parent know how dangerous this was and how he/she is thinking about calling cops since adult put child in harm's way.
Here are some tips for adults to follow to avoid leaving child inside a car that can turn into an oven. Put important items, such as purse or car, in the back of the car, which allow parents to check in back of car for kids. Also, put child's favorite toys in the front and backseat, and then put it in the passenger seat, which is a visual reminder of child potentially being inside the car. In a nutshell, LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK, which will allow parents to keep track of kids' who inside the backseat. While I want children and parents to enjoy the nice weather, it is also important to stay safe in terms of driving during hot conditions. Please take care. GOD BLESS.
Painfully, symptoms associated with Lyme Disease are fever, headaches, neck stiffness, joint pains, rashes, heart palpitations, poor memory, lose of appetite, tiredness, and fatigue. Fortunately, for the rash, it does not itch or hurt for most people who develop Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease was first discovered as a separated disorder in 1975; wherease, further explanation was provide in 1981.
Lyme Disease is said to take place in the late spring and early summer. While everyone should be careful, please be extra cautious about animals and children, especially, playing in the grass since the weather is gradually becoming more pleasant. Please use bug spray to avoid being attacked by a tick. If infected by a tick, please use antibiotics, especially if the tick has full blood, which is when the tick is at its most poisonous. For those who do not know what a tick looks like, it is an eight legged insect, which resembles a small spider.
The Human Brain is made up of four major lobes, the frontal lobe, temporal lobe (the site for language and communication), occipital lobe (back of the brain), and the parietal lobe.
The frontal lobe is probably the most important part of the brain since it stores decision making, abstract thought, rationality, and other vital functions to the brain. To compare, the frontal lobe is deemed as the brake of the brain, which slows everything down when the amygdala (the gas/engine of the brain) is going out of control.
Other essential elements to the brain are the cerebellum and the brain stem, which receives signals from the spinal cord. The cerebellum is responsible for motor movement and coordination, which is also referred to as procedural memory.
The brain stem (the basement of the brain) can before the cerebellum, which is consider the first floor of the brain. Therefore, the brain stem is considered one of the key fundaments of the brain, which holds everything together.
Within the limbic system, the amygdala regulates powerful emotions, such as fear and angry, which pertains to flight versus fight. When angry people feel threat, they will use their amygdala to protect themselves during hazardous situations. The purpose of anger is to take action when something is wrong. However, too much anger may be unhealthy; some who have high levels of anger may suffer partial brain damage where the prefrontal cortex or frontal lobe is missing. In addition, some antisocial, sociopath, or serial killers have smaller amygdala, which cause some of them to lack empathy and remorse. Hippocampus is also located in the limbic system, which is mainly responsible for memory. The purpose of memory is to help people use their retention skills by learning from their mistakes so unpleasant events will not happen to them again.
Even Irish children as young as 10 to 14 years, and younger, old were affected by slavery as well. As much as 550,000 Irish people died at the hands of slavery. During the 1600s, almost of million Irish people were kidnapped, which reduced the Ireland population to nearly 50 percent from 1,466,000 to 600,000 native Irish residing.
The term red legs or red neck is highly offensive to Irish and British people, which describe poor Whites whose legs were brutalized while working as slaves in the islands. This derogatory term is as bad as calling African Americans the N word.
Irish people suffered a great deal of pain and suffering, which was just as bad as the anguish African Americans endured during the Atlantic Slave Trade in the 16th century. Therefore, Irish, African Americans, Native Americans, Slavs, Russians, The Jews, and other nationalities who were victims of slavery should be able to relate with one another by knowing what it was like to experience harsh conditions. The message is to use all this painful history to bring each other up during the present and future. So let's live from one another and instead of bringing people down for our differences.
Pathological gambling is part of the DSM 5 as an addictive disorder. Previously, the APA thought about considering this disorder as an impulse control disorder; however, American Psychological Association agreed with DSM when they said chronic gambling is closely related to substance abuse disorder by having similar features.
Unfortunately, there are high cases of suicide attempts and rates found for those who are pathological gamblers. It is reported that habitual gambling has the highest rates of suicide than any other addiction. 1 in 5 pathological gamblers have committed suicide in the United States. Also, severe gamblers with comorbid disorders, such as mental disorders or substance abuse, tend to have high rates of suicide attempts. Older people with gambling issues tend to have the highest rates of suicide attempts.
Treatments use to assist those with their gambling problems are gamblers anonymous 12 step problem, medication, self help group, peer group, group therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavior therapy. SSRI paroxetine and nalmefene may help those control their gambling urges or desires. Specifically, lithium is said to be quite effective for gamblers who also have bipolar disorders.
At its worst, polio can cause arm and leg pain, which may lead to deformed arms or legs (severely bent body parts) from spinal polio. If the nerve cells are destroyed, polio can lead to permanent paralysis. More dangerously, some cases of polio may lead to permanent polio paralysis where suffer to have difficulty breathing, which may be fatal, if he/she does not use a breathing machine.
People can avoid suffering from polio if they take their polio vaccine shot. However, once some people develop polio there is no treatment to recover from the virus. Continents with the highest rates of polio is Asia and Africa.
A lot of people can recover from polio while others may live with this sickness for the rest of their lives. Please keep in mind that those who do recover from polio may develop the illness again in the near future, which is post polio syndrome. Unfortunately, there is a mortality rate of 2-5 percent for children and 15-30 percent for adults.
While there is no cure at this time, treatment tools to help those cope with their polio is physical therapy, occupational therapy, corrective shoes, braces, orthopedic surgery, ventilators, such as iron lungs to assist with independent breathing. Through research and experimentation, the mission is to hopefully find a remedy to treat polio by the year 2018.
At times, this disorder may be mistaken for OCD, eating disorder, and schizophrenia since the client is overly concern about being healthy or staying fit. To demonstrate, the doctor may see one thing, but the client may see something else despite the test results, which is someone to a schizophrenic seeing a monster that no one else sees.
An example of SSD is someone having an head ache, which makes him believe he has a brain tumor that requires surgery. Therefore, over diagnosing is one of the key terms when dealing with those who have Somatic Symptom Disorder.
Factors that might contribute to SSD is physical abuse or trauma, which cause some people to believe they have the perceived injuries. Also, if someone has histories of injuries or physical disorder individuals may believe they will have the same illnesses as their parents or grandparents.
During therapy, the counselors should meet the clients where they are at by asking how long have they suffered from their potential illness or how come they think they are not feeling well. If a therapist simply tells the client nothing is wrong with them that may do more harm than good, which will cause the client to fret someone. Therapeutically, the therapist can ask what if I were to your body is fatigue or you need to go to the hospital, how would you feel? Perhaps, cognitive and talk therapy can have those who have long history with Somatic Symptom Disorder.
Dissociative Identity Disorder is formerly known as multiple personality disorder, which affects more females than males, as much as 3 to 9 times. Some people report to having DID symptoms as young as 8 to 12 years of age. Globally, this condition tends to occur in Europe and North American (1 to 5 percent), in particular, which affects the general population 1 to 3 percent.
This disorder gained awareness throughout the 1970s until 1990s; however, there are some, not a lot of, findings on the causes and treatment for this disorder. Unfortunately, the prognosis for this disorder is not great because individuals rarely a recovery from DID, which means there is no remedy at this time.
Main symptoms are memory lost, easily distracted, and daydreaming. DID is one of the most complicated disorders for clinicians to diagnose since this complex condition causes confusing and bewilderment. The reason this disorder is so tough to pinpoint because some clients ranging from having 2 to 16 different identities in a short amount of time, which is called alters. The legal and court system reported a lot of DID cases in recent years, which might be due to clinicians misdiagnosing their clients.
Example is a client changing their names to fit their identities, which cause the doctors to ask who are they talking to at the moment. Some clients may intentionally change their identities to help them cope with trauma or an abusive past; therefore, they use daydream or being a different person as a form of defensive mechanism to protect them from their unpleasant past.
Fortunately, treatments that usually useful for DID clients are cognitive therapy, talk therapy, and maybe Gestalt therapy to help those who battle with dissociation tendencies. Therapy technique to conquer dissociation would be to encourage clients to use their 5 sense by putting tapping themselves or using a stress ball. Inhale and exhale breathing is said to help those who are battle with dissociation. Optimistically, with the proper coping mechanism, people with DID can live a healthy, pleasant, and successful life. God Bless.
Symptoms, included nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fevers, headaches, migraines, lost of taste, fatigue, abdominal pain, and lethargy. The highest cases of norovirus are reported in jails, overnight camps, hospitals, schools, dormitories, and particularly cruise ships during the winter time.
People can protect themselves from norovirous by using alcohol, detergent, hand sanitizer, disinfectants, and heating rooms. It this disease is lethal and an epidemic, most people who had the norovious tend to make a fully recovery within a couple of days while other can live with this condition for 6 months or even two years, which can be fatal. When in doubt, a person should make a schedule an appointment with their doctor for protection.
The other part of the story is when the white section of the bus was full; therefore, the bus driver asked the African Americans to move their seats so the Caucasians could sit in the colored sections due to the bus being crowded. Three black people got up, but Rosa did not. She thought it was unfair for her to move from the color sections in order for the whites to vacate her seat. Please keep in mind this was the same bus driver who left Rosa out in the rain back in 1942, which meant he did not change in his rigid ways. As a result, he called the cops since Rosa remained in her seat.
While she paved the way for bus desegregation, her courage led to some consequences, which caused him to suffer death threats as well as getting fired from her job as seamstress. However, she receive global recognition as the woman who took a star. Her accolades include the Presidential Medal of Freedom (highest civilian award), and having two days tribute to her, which occurred in Ohio and California on February 4th and December 1st.
Nonetheless, when Emmett's mother heard that her son was kidnapped and killed, she wanted her son's casket to be open so the world could see what these men did to her boy. The guys did not only murder the teen, but beat him with every inch of his life until his face and body was unrecognizable. This event receive worldwide recognition and press, which headline newspapers. This incident paved the way for the Civil Rights Movement where individuals would receive serious jail time if they harm an innocent person. However, some people tried to justify the Caucasian men's actions by saying Emmett had no business talking to the white lady in the first place.
Mind you that this event was historical for many years since it took place in 1955, which was also the year that Rosa Parks refused to give her seat to a Caucasian man (December 1, 1955). Also, this incident is monumental because it took place on August 28, which is 8 years before the legendary Dr. King I Have a Dream Speech.
Quiet Borderline is very similar to Borderline Personality Disorder, which is an impulse control disorder that sees most patients become easily agitated and suicidal. While Borderline Personality Disorder is external lashing out on people, Quiet Borderline is internal when the individual tends to be hard on him or herself. Those with quiet borderline tend to repress their thoughts by keeping everything bottle in, which includes fear and anger. Therefore, a lot of people may not know that the person suffers from Quiet Borderline due to the person withholding inform from others. According to the DSM 5, 50 percent of people who have Quiet Borderline or Borderline Disorder tend to recover from their disorder, which means they is a cure from this mental illness.
For more information on Quiet Borderline, please check out Kati Mortion videos who is an expert counselor on the field of counseling.
The criteria of a blizzard is taking place for three hours, poor visibility of less than 1/4 mile, winds gusting up to 35 mph, and drifting or blowing snow, which is very interesting. It does not have to snow from the sky in order for a blizzard to take place. The wind can blow off the roof or ground, which is also known as a ground blizzard, which blew my mind. It is intriguing because it does not have to be a 12 inch storm for a blizzard to take place. This may sound strange, but there could be a 1 or 2 inch blizzard, if the winds howl for 3 hours, which reduce visible to 1/4 of a mile. It is funny because has anybody heard of a 1 inch blizzard storm before?
The worst blizzard took place in Iran in 1972, which dumped between 10 feet of snow accompanied by blowing winds. Remind snow and blizzards are two different things. Also, blizzards tend to occur the most along the Great Plains. Personally, I became fascinated with blizzards during the blizzard of 96 since the Tristate area received 2 feet of snow, which was a surreal and life changing moment for me.
Light year is how fast the speed of light can travel within one year. People get stars and galaxies mixed up because they look similar. Galaxies are usually spiral, which are larger than stars. Therefore, stars live within the galaxies. Some individuals also get solar system mixed up with the universe. Allow me to break down the data. The solar system contain planets while the universe contains everything in outerspace, which includes the planets and solar system.
Risperdal can cause symptoms, such as weight gain, diabetes, coughing, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, parkinsonism, agitation, insomnia, increase hunger, anxiety, fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, sore throat, increase hunger, and much more.
Please listen up. This drug is said to increase the risk of death for those who suffer from dementia. Therefore, elderly people with memory lost should stay far away from this due since it produces life threatening consequences.
Since this medication is stirring controversy and confusion, it should be took off the market to avoid other people suffering the unpleasant side affect from this pill. However, if the drug is still marketable, the only people who should be allow to take Risperdal are females and males (over the age of 18) with severe mental disorders, which was mentioned above this passage. I would advise males even older than 18 years old to check with their doctors to see if it is safe to take Risperdal to treat their mental condition.
Crohn's Disease equally affected males and females across North America and Europe. unfortunately, it was reported that over 35,000 people died from this disease in 2010.
It is recommend that surgery be the last option unless Crohn's disease causes severe pain or bleeding. There are no cures and the cause for this disease is unknown. This disorder is not classified as a autoimmune disease since the immune system does not attack itself at the hands of this disease. It is said that smoking increase the risk of a person developing Crohn's by twofold. Therefore, is best to stop smoking or not smoke at all in order to avoid developing this harmful disease.
It is a good idea to get tested by having a colonoscopy to see if there is cancer every few years, which should begin eight years after developing this illness.
People with Crohn's disease have a somewhat reduced life expectancy, which is a few years shorter than the average life expectancy. For example, if the average person is should to live 75 to 80 years old, a person with Crohn's may live 75 years old instead of being 80.
This disease is named after Dr. Crohn who discovered people were becoming sick and dying from Crohn's in 1932 in a New York hospital.
Levodopa and dopamine agonist is stated to be effective in treating those who have early or mild form of PD. If PD progresses, these medications can become ineffective. Proper dieting is said to be effective in managing those with Parkinson. Surgery and deep brain stimulation is used as a last resort if the drugs are not working for those who have extreme case of this disorder.
The disease is named after Mr. James Parkinson, English doctor, who wrote a detail essay about PD on April 11, 1817, which is also known as Parkinson's Day.
Do people remember the commercial where the lady created more awareness for babies who have Pertusiss a few years ago?
Pertusiss is a whipping cough disorder that usually affects youths, such as babies and toddlers. This condition is often referred to as the 100 day cough since this disease can last six weeks before subsiding. This disease is caused by bacteria, which is also contagious that can be spread by one person to another. They suffer from chronic coughing that causes discomfort and pain. Some youths have an extreme form of Pertusiss to the extent of them choking or grasping for air.
It reported that this disease affects 49 million people, which is sadly stated to claim over 295,000 deaths.
Possibly, parents who smoke a great deal can increase the probability of their child developing Pertusiss. However, Pertusiss can in kids even if their parents do not have no history of smoking. It is recommended that parents visit their doctors ASAP if they suspect their child has Pertusiss if their baby is constantly coughing. Parents can help their child defeat this disease by making sure kids take antibiotics and vaccine, which helps the kid to avoid developing this disease.
For more information, please watch videos online that offer description of this infectious disease that is harming innocent people, especially children.
Color Confusion affects more male than females since they have one X chromosome while woman have two X chromosomes. In other words, ladies have extra chromosomes that men lack, which help their eyes from experiencing color bewilderment. Color blindness can be caused by eye injuries, such as the optic nerve being damaged.
Unfortunately, there is no treatment to cure this disorder. Those with this condition must be careful when driving on the roads. For example, when they approach a traffic light, they may have become confused on whether the light is green or red. Therefore, it is recommended that a passenger, who is also an experienced driver, accompany the driver with color blindness by warning him or her when the light is about to change from red to green. I believe there are special glasses and contacts to help those to manage their color blindness difficulties.
English Chemist John Dalton wrote an essay to help cope with his color blindness in 1798, which is the first time this topic received significant awareness.
Interestingly, people with colored blind people are said to have been sense of color when it comes to observing camouflages. In terms of color, most colored blind individuals are able to spot colors that people with normal vision are not to see.
Depressed individuals compared getting out of bed similar to climbing Mount Everest. Most depressed people do not want to do anything except lay down and be alone. Most even lose their appetite.
Traumatic events can be a factor, which triggers depression. For example, if a person experience family or job loss, they are more likely to be in a state of melancholy. Typically, people with depression may have poor coping skills, which cause them to respond negatively to tragic events. For example, if a person lost a relative, it may take them a few weeks to grief over the lost of his loved one. More often than not, it may take a depressed person months or even years to get over the lost of a loved one. To put if differently, most depressed people may dislike change and unpredictability, which if it affects their life in a negative way. Other risk factors are genetics; if there is history of a person having family members who are depression, he is more likely to develop this mental condition himself.
Counseling and antidepressant is some of the most effective treatment in those who are battling with depression. It is recommend that clients see a therapist before taking medication since meds can produce some side affects. However, if people want to attend counseling while receiving mediation, they can do so, as long as it is done with moderation.
Signs of ulcers are experiencing abdominal pain 3 hours after mealtime for Duodenal ulcer, vomiting, nausea, lost of appetite, weight loss, and vomiting of blood.
Carafate has been said to be a effective treatment for those who have peptic ulcers.
If the pain is severe, emergency surgery might be required. People ages 45 and old have a high risk of developing peptic ulcer. Therefore, please see a doctor to see if middle age people suspect they have signs or symptoms of peptic ulcer. Even, if people in their mid 40s feel fine, please seek advice from a medical professional to see if they will develop this condition in the future. Best wishes on a speedy recovering to those who are in excruciating pain with the stomach ulcer.
Caffeine is consumed by 90 percent of people everyday. Caffeine is a CNS (Central Nervous System) stimulant, which is the most common psychoactive drug in the world. Liquid caffeine, coffee, usually helps people to be alert, awareness, energize when they are tired or fatigue.
Symptoms of overdosing are irritability, confusion, delirium, ears ringing, rapid heart rate, breathing fast, depression, mania, bladder cancer, and death (extreme overdosing from caffeine pills instead of coffee). In other words, consumers are more likely to die from overdosing from caffeine pills instead of drinking large quantity of coffee. Caffeine is similar to drinking alcohol; as long as people drink coffee moderately they will be able to live a normal and healthy life.
Another case of caffeine being similar to alcohol is when the drinker abuses caffeine or coffee, it is referred to as caffeinism akin to alcoholism. Caffeinsim is also referred to as caffeine intoxication, which is consuming amount of amount of caffeine. There is also moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms when consumers decide to quit caffeine, which can include stomach pains. Caffeine withdrawal usually last anywhere from 2 to 9 days depending on the severity of the caffeine consumption. Caffeine is listed in the DSM 5 as a mental disorder due to reports of it causing people to become tolerant, dependent, and experience withdrawal symptoms.
Pregnant woman should be careful of consuming large amount of coffee should it will not have any affect on their babies. It is up to future moms if they want to drink little to no coffee. When in doubt, they should see their doctors for advice on whether or not they should drink little to no coffee.
Overall, caffeine has it pros and cons due can reduce the risk of diabetes, some forms of cancer, establish wakefulness, and alertness. However, the dangers include irritability, restlessness, confusion, anxiety, depression, and stomach pain. Therefore, would I drink coffee? My answer is still NO due to the risk of heart palpitations and breathing heavy after drinking a cup of coffee.
Bipolar 1 is described as having at least one episode of hypomania while Bipolar 2 indicates someone having one episode of major depression and hypomania. Bipolar disorder may be comorbid with anxiety disorders and drug misuse.
No absolute cause has been found to determine the etiology of this condition. However, environment factors, such as stress and child abuse, may play a role in people developing bipolar.
People who have bipolar disorder are at great risk of committing suicide, up to 6 percent. There is 30-40 percent rate of self-harm reported for those with this condition.
Lithium is the common medication that clients take for mental condition. If bipolar people experience manic episode, they should not take antidepressant. If bipolar clients are in their depressed state, then they can take antidepressant with mood stabilizer. Electroshock therapy is also an option if the patients doesn't respond to the treatment.
3 percent of people suffer from this mental illness, which is equally present in males and females. People with this disorder suffer from social stigma by caring what people think of them. Signs of bipolar symptoms begins at the age of 25.
In the early 1990s, 45 billion dollars spent on research to study those who suffer from bipolar.
Some people think they can get rabies after being bitten by a rat. Surprisingly, rats are not as poisonous as one think, they have very little to no rabies. People still have to be aware of these flirty animals because they can contain germs or diseases; however, they are not as poisons as other animals, such as cats, dogs, and bats. People can develop rabies after they are bitten, scratched, or touched contagious animals. Coming in contact with these animals' saliva will pose a threat of encountering rabies from these vicious creatures.
Therefore, a person has a higher chance of developing rabies from these warm-blooded animals besides rats. However, I do not blame people who still think they should be wary of rats containing rabies since they are somewhat related to bats, which is a valid assumption. Individuals may assume rats have rabies based on the fear of the animal's appearance. Overall, if cats or dogs look sick by having cuts around the eyes or mouth, they should keep their distance from this potentially infected animal. If the dog is drooling profusely, the human should play it safe. . Please keep a careful eye on the kids who love to play with dogs and cats, some may not know that they are play with an infected animal.
Signals and symptoms of rabies include confusion, fear of water, high fever, tingling, inability to move parts of the body, and loss of consciousness. The duration of signals of rabies varies. To elaborate, it could take days, weeks, months, or a year for people to feel the affect of rabies.
If a person picks up a bat or gets bite by a dog, they should wash their hands with soap, water, alcohol, and detergent for fifteen minutes, which is a golden rule of thumb that is somewhat effective. Additionally, people can fight the disease if they are rush to the hospital by receiving rabies vaccine, a shot, by a doctor ASAP.
Unfortunately, rabies is usually a fatal and life threatening disease. People more often than not suffer from brain damage when the viruses travel and attacks the brain, which causes severe and permanent brain damage. While the disease is typically deadly, a few people prevented themselves from dying by participating in the Milwaukee experiment, which saved 5 out of 43 patients lives (equals 8 percent success rate).
There was a 2004 story of Jeanna Giese, 15 years old, suffering rabies after she picked up a dead bat in her room. At first she did not feel the effects of the rabies; however, her condition deteriorated as time progress within a month. Therefore, she was rushed into the emergency room where the doctor tried an experiment on her known as the Milwaukee experiment, which put her into a coma. The Milwaukee experiment is where the doctor use antiviral medication to make sure the rabies does not touch teenage patients brain.
A month later, she regained her consciousness, which meant that the operation was a success. She was checked into the hospital on September 4, 2004 and exited the medical center on January 1, 2005. While she suffer little to no brain damage, she had to relearned how to walk and talk all over again. The teenager decided this experience as being a baby all over again. Successfully, she managed to graduate from college in 2011. Some people suspect that this young lady had a mild form of rabies, which is why she was able to beat the disease. This discussion is open to debate, which means it is up to reader to decide if she had mild or severe rabies.
Once more, if more information is need about this fatal disease, please do research or seek consultation from a primary physician or doctor. Thanks.
An epileptic person does not have any control of his or her when suffering from a seizure, which can occur randomly. Also, sensations, such as sound, touch, and lighting, may also cause an epileptic to experience a episode, e.g. cold weather or a wind may cause a person to have a seizure. Epilepsy is broken down into two subtypes tonic and absent epilepsy or seizures.
Epilepsy is a series of seizures, which means it is more chronic than having a seizure. A patient with epilepsy suffers from seizures all the time. Alcoholism can increase a alcoholic risk of having a seizure or developing epilepsy.
When a person suffers epilepsy, all the muscles in their body are contracting, which means the victim is experiencing a lot of pain and suffering.
Some seizures last for a few seconds while some can last for minutes. Please note that a person can suffer brain damage within 4 minutes, which means seizures can attack brain, if the episode is longer than 4 minutes. If a seizure last for 2-3 minutes, the person will most likely not suffer any traumatic brain injury. A huge part of a epileptic suffering brain injury them falling down backwards and hitting the ground hard on their head, which may also be fatal.
The protocol of a person having a seizure on the ground is to not panic. The first thing a person must do is call 9-11. Move any objects (bottles or glass) that will not happen the martyr. Also, please do not put hands into the epileptic mouth while having a seizure, which can be very harmful to the helper. Most people fear the person having the seizure will biting their tongue, which will come off, causing that person to swallow it down their throats. If the person is hitting his or her head on the ground, slowly put a pillow or something soft underneath the individual head so he will not continue bagging it on the ground. It is vital not to touch the person while he or she is having a seizure. Another important note is to turn the person over once their episode has passed, which is usually result to the suffer vomiting. It is not ideal for the person to vomit when they are lying on their back.
Epilepsy is a life threatening neurological disorder that prevents people from driving depending on the severity and frequency of the mental condition. 70 percent of epilepsy can be controlled through medication.
Down below is a list of my favorite inventions (e.g. Carver and Morgan) as well as people missing from the poem (e.g. Bath and Johnson).
Seriously, ALS is also known as the Lou Gehrig Disease, which took the life of Baseball hall of famer at the age of 37 in the 1941. This disease is named the Lou Gehrig because he was one of the first superstars to have this disease, which received worldwide recognition and awareness.
ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is a neurodegenerative disorder that weakens the muscle. ALS one of the most common motor neuron disease, which also makes it difficult to speak, swallow, and breathe.
The onset age for this illness is 60 years; however, people can develop ALS at 50. The survival rate with this condition is 4 years. There are small percentage (4 percent) of people living up to 10 years with this sickness. There are rare cases of people living as much as 50 years with ALS. 5 to 10 percent of children will inherit ALS, if their parents were born with this disease. As much as 30,000 Americans suffer from this ALS, which kills 2 per 100,000 people annually.
The term was first described by Charles Bell in 1824 while ALS was first coined by Jean Mean Charcot (French neurologist).
Children tend to choke on toys while Adults are prone to choking on food. e.g. usually steak or bones in fish. Also, when people are talking and eating simultaneously that can also increase the risk of food being trapped in the throat.
Signs of choking is if the victim struggles to talks, put hands over throat, and face becomes pale.
If the victim is coughing on food, encourage him or her to keep coughing until the food comes out. The helper should ask a witness to call 911 for help to arrive. If that does not, pat the person on the back, with a firm blow between the shoulder blades, 5 times.
If the person continues choking, it is time for the Abdominal Thrust, which means the rescuer must get behind the choker. The rescuer should put his or her foot between the person's feet for balance. Then, make a fist and have the other hand cover the fist. Both hands should be together, which should be placed right above the belly button. While hands are still connected to each other, the helper should forcefully move both hands in a J shape or S shape motion, 3-5 times, which should cause the victim to spit out the food. If that does not work, return back to applying back blows on the person's back until the food comes out the victim's mouth. Return to Heimlich Maneuver, if the back blows are not successful.
If a baby or pregnant woman is choking, would do everything except the abdominal thrust. They must apply the chest thrust, using the index and middle finger, on a pregnant female or infant, 3-5 times. If does not work, restore to using the back blows, and then return to using the chest thrust, if the back blows are not working.
While marijuana is said to help people battling with cancer, I personally do not see much benefit in legalizing marijuana for recreational purposes. I know some people are excited about marijuana being legal because it can become profitable, which means paying taxes will make this drug official. However, is this drug worth the price when it is said to have side affects, which includes brain damage?
To heal patients with cancer, maybe. However, passing the bill for marijuana to be legalize across the nation might be overdoing it. As mentioned, marijuana causes small brain damage. Even if this plant causes slight mental corruption is putting people's mental health in harm's way. Helping cancer victims is one thing, but smoking cannabis for leisure is another story. Therefore, I would not mind marijuana being used as a pill form to help those battling with cancer. g confusion and reduces the reaction time.
I will be open-minded to people's comments and opinions on this controversial topics, which appears as though this topic is going anywhere anytime soon.
People with bipolar and depression are at high risk of committing suicide. If people suspect that someone's personality is off by having a specific plan in harming themselves or others, please get help at once. When in doubt, call the suicide hotline to discuss the suicidal person situation.
Please do not give up on life just because the going is getting tough. If a person is feeling suicidal, seek help ASAP whether it is from a doctor, friend, or a loved one. The grass is green on the other side as well as the light shinning at the end of the tunnel.
On the other hand, autism spectrum is a milder form of autism, which is less severe than being autistic. ASD occurs in 1 in 68 children, which affects more boys than girls. Much like autism, many people with autism spectrum are sensitive to sensation, which means they usually dislike to be touch, even by friends and family. Autism spectrum has cases of it being comorbid with learning disabilities, depression, some levels of mental retardation, intellectual disabilities, ADHD, seizure, epilepsy, and anxiety disorders.
It is said babies born to older parents are more likely to develop ASD. Early diagnosis is key in helping children deal with their struggles with speech and communication. The sooner parents find out their children have ASD, the better it will be for them to address the issue a lot sooner. Doctors are usually able to diagnose toddlers who are four years old. However, parents are welcome to see doctors if they suspect their kids are displaying ASD traits before the age of 4.
Asperger syndrome is a form of autism spectrum disorder, which is characterized in difficulty in social interaction, nonverbal communication, and clumsiness. The difference between Asperger and autism are cognitive development and linguistic. However, Asperger syndrome was removed from the new DSM V manual, which was replaced with Autism Spectrum as the dominant disorder.
Signs of breast cancer are lumps in the breast, shortness of breath, weight loss, hair loss, pain in the bones, yellow skin, and lymph nodes. Other symptoms of breast cancer are skin dimpling, nipple changes, reddish in the breast, and blood or fluid that comes out of the breast.
Obesity, excessive alcohol, poor exercise, late pregnancy, or even no pregnancy are risk factors of breast cancer. Unfortunately, African American woman have the highest risk of developing breast cancer. Asian American females are said to have the lowest risk of developing breast cancer, which is a good thing. Breast cancer is broken down to two types, Breast Cancer 1, BRCA 1 and Breast Cancer 2, BRCA 2. There are 18 different subtypes of breast cancer.
Thankfully, there are a various treatments available for those are battling with aggressive cases of breast cancer. Breast cancer treatment includes radiation surgery, chemotherapy, mastectomy (removal of the female upper parts), target therapy, and lumpectomy, which is a less intense surgery that removes the lumps on the females chest.
Fortunately, 96 percent of females who track breast cancer early, will be cancer free for 5 years. Personally, I think it is better if it is worded as breast survivors are cancer free for 5 years instead of survivors having a 5 year survival rate. It can be alarming by making some females think they only have 5 years left to life.
A rule of thumb is for middle aged females, 50 to 74 years, to have their breast exam, e.g. biopsy or breast screening, every 2 years to see if they are at risk of this disease.
Technically, cancer is characterized with abnormal cell growth. There are over 100 types of cancer. Smoking (can lead to lung cancer), excessive alcohol, and obesity can greatly increase a person risk of developing cancer. Cancer is one of the most painful illness out there, which are associated with lumps, abnormal bleeding, prolong coughing, weight lost, and hair lost. Typical cancer for males are prostate, stomach, lung, and colorectal cancer. Breast, colorectal, lung, and cervical cancer are high for females who have history of their family developing cancer.
Statistically, cancer claimed the lives of more than 8 million people in 2012, while there were 14 million cases of cancer in 2012. Emotionally, children, under the age of 15, with cancer usually have 5 years to live, in the develop world and in USA. Therefore, cancer is a huge target in the youth population, especially those younger than 15 years old. Leukemia and brain tumor are the type of cancer that affects children with cancer the most.
Emotionally, this sensitive topic is here to inspire those who are battling any type of cancer, which can be disheartening to the victims as well. In addition, it can be very emotional for friends, family, and fans to witness these stars battling this difficult sickness. in front of their eyes. Positively, with technology and extensive research, most cancers are treatable.
Please let know me if anyone has questions or comments regarding this important matter.
