I suffered a Broken Ankle 2016 and the PAIN was Remarkable in comparison to PAIN I suffer on a regular basis ( right hip- needing Desperate Replacement) so I was given Tylenol 3 which without would have caused a meltdown of catastrophic proportion,however, if I had taken 1 every 4 hours I would be sedated to the point of Never waking up except for food and bathroom needs. My thought I wish to express is that Every Body is Different & if you are not comfortable taking 1 every 4 hrs. , Simply take 1 as NEEDED. We are
ALL PUT TOGETHER A BIT UNIQUELY and Yes ,we are all Human, but are all different and to quote the Best Doctor I have had as a Primary care physician" Debra,Doctors don't know Everything"

I was involved in car accident April 1 ,1990 and afterwards suffered migraine headaches worse than the ones I endured prior. I asked one of my Drs. What caused these & his response in Short was
Salt ,& dehydrated state.
I had just been eating salted pretzels during 1 hr. drive to NJ. and
My first devastating headache was age 18 spending the day walking around Manhattan.No h2o Blazing hot sun ,I collapsed on a sofa in Alexanders Dept store ladies room on 5th Ave.
So when my Dr. said
"Dehydration" as a cause of migraines, it all made sense.so I keep the previously mentioned facts in check on a regular basis.its standard operating procedure!
The ABSOLUTE Best remedy in medication form I have found is Butalbital with Aspirin.
Not sure what the Medical world thinks of this,but it is a very subtle, almost unnoticeable drug in my opinion,from my ex

Jun 29, 2018 · The psychological aspect of dealing with bronchiectasis and MAC. in MAC & Bronchiectasis

Hi, let me try again
I have a 24 yr.old son who I believe has mentally related anger issues.I have been trying to break the details of his life down and Realizing that every
individual is just that, an INDIVIDUAL,it is hard to
diagnose him with 1 named disorder.
Intermittent anger issues seems to fit his behavior. I feel many factors are responsible.
Joint custody, internet usage( non available @home), video games, EXPOSURE to LEAD! & more I can't think of at this moment. He has melt downs & I feel quite confident they are something
Directly and physically tied to some ACTUAL Thing in the house. I experience feeling sick indoors at same household. Do you have any suggestions?
I love my son and want him to be happy.
Thank you sincerely

May 25, 2018 · Upset, scared, and mad - Had a big fall, concussion, numbness... in Mental Health

In 1990 I was driving my 64 Plymouth Valiant convertible on a narrow winding,2 lane rd.in Westchester co.NY.my speed was approximately 10-2 mph. & slow as that sounds,it wasn't slow enough for the approaching,notorious curve and the pouring rain and crimped brake line on my car.
I put slight pressure on the brake pedal and my tires hydroplaned across wet surface. Being too short to go through the windshield,my face went into the Big hard poly steering wheel,breaking the chrome horn device which was inside the steering wheel.the broken chrome knocked my top front 5 teeth out & flattened my bottom ones. Post concussive syndrome was diagnosed & I was fortunate to not have broken any bones.it was almost a year before I looked normal,not like a hideous monster ,in fact walking in the hospital hallway one day, I said hello to the neurologist who had examined me April 1,1990. He stopped
And asking"do I know you?" I responded" car accident,april 1, 1990" . The look on his face was bewilderment.He had not seen me ever prior to accident & could believe I was actually a cute blonde girl. I'm sure he figured out who I was after going through my medical records .
Once you have a concussion you are more vulnerable to having another.Not sure exactly why
but it has to do with equilibrium.
My next concussion was 5 years ago on my "SPECIALIZED" Bicycle,my son saw the entire thing. I rode over HUGE POT HOLE,where the road was washed out next to a small bridge in a wealth community,River Hills,in Milwaukee county.
The day prior,there was white & orange Road Blocks with flashing orange lights. They were removed so I assumed road was repaired.
Hitting the rough washed out grit,i flew over my handle bars ,put my hands out to protect my body
Then my head hit,cracked my helmet and knocked me unconscious briefly. That was a worse head injury than my auto incident. 2 days later I split my head open on metal edge of cranking Window while gardening,BLOOD EVERYWHERE!
I used to say"I've been rewired" but now I am so disorganized and STRUGGLE Everyday to keep a schedule,get my life simplified.I need a Dentist,Teeth, a place of my own with a bed & closet / place to store clothes.without a car or Family members to lean on,its a Big Challenge,
But I know,IT COULD BE WORSE, so I constantly remind myself of this fact. PERSERVANCE is key.
They should teach it in elementary school.

I am searching for information regarding a 24 year old male,who was diagnosed with”ADD”in the 4th grade and was prescribed concerta( new patented
capsule form of Ritalin). Because of joint custody situation,i can only assume he was taking it all 5 school days. Fast forward to middle school where he was given the gift of a rare,caring neighbor,who worked & still does,at my son’s school. Mentoring
is to minimal a term to describe her investment in my son. She knows and Believes in the Power of Education. All things considered, Parents
Remain the significant influence and “Joint custody” is a Huge road block in the way it blocks consistency in the child’s life.
Now it’s high school and Dad buys a phone and despite School policy,son brings phone to school.
Repeatedly,he is given phone back, with no respect to calls from the School Principal.
It wasn’t a healthy situation,for all involved,especially for student/son. He graduated
Not with his class,but during summer with help from Mentor Neighbor.
Fast forward, 5 years , social media,video games, no job or further education,he finally got a great Job & bought a car .He was track for a self reliant
Independent lifestyle. One problem, a girl who had introduced herself to young man 2 years prior,
became an issue. Although they only met that once, social media communication became a problem to the point that an arrest for stalking hangs in the balance. This is a SERIOUS ISSUE
that Parents NEED TO REGARD SERIOUSLY!
It will ruin a person life if not K kept in check.
My phone is an Amazing Educational tool, but in the hands of young people,it becomes an obsession.
So my question is this,what psychiatric assessments
Are used in the”NGI” process at correctional facilities and is it possible to confirm a diagnosis of a persons mental health after a 45-60 minute discussion?
This is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to me, so I will
Appreciate Any and All opinions given to me.

In regards to typing / using a keyboard,i too have trouble with this task. At this very moment am using a 3 inch Android on which it takes me 40 mins to construct a few paragraphs. If using a pen & paper it would be a15 -20 minute task.I have Raynaud's syndrome & my hands are ALWAYS COLD,which dramatically affects my speed.I find "Hot Hands" quite helpful and I am using one now. I put them in my shoes also. At first I thought it would be too uncomfortable,but it isn't as long as you place them strategically.
The best remedy for writing/typing as fast as you think is something I thought of over 12 years ago, a device
one would connect to the Brain which transmitted thoughts onto paper. Even if it existed,i wouldn't be able to afford one.

In the Upper Peninsula Saunas are a common thing. I miss them. Also, you discussed Light and I feel EXTREMELY
Positive about the Need for Supplemental
Sunlight Source All year,but especially during winter. It has been 7 years since I stopped Tanning regularly and I have Never felt WORSE! It was a slow & steady decline,from the fungus on my feet/ toenails, to my aching joints and the color of skin.the Artificial light in tanning beds
may not be totally healthy,but just as with medications, the right dose is Beneficial.
