I really want the vaccination. I have been fortunate so far, but don't want to press my luck. My doctor will contact me soon, I am sure. I see my doctor regularly and she knows I'll need the vaccination. But she has to go through the list of priority cases first. Anyhow, once the whole country - and...

I found your post interesting, imlisarichards. Having suffered anxiety and depression myself, I did not have the treatment you received. BUT I did have medication prescribed and saw a psychiatrist once in a while. I didn't suffer badly, but it is still there at the back of my mind. Because depressio...

I wash my face with a gentle soap each night and have no problems with blocked pores or spots. I won't say what soap I use, but it's really good. BUT soap does not work for everyone: everyone has different skin and one-size does not fit all. I'd say if you're going to give soap a go, use a very mild...
Lavender is incredibly good for the skin. Essential oils in general are often used in skincare products. They have a medicinal effect on the skin. I wouldn't advise mixing essential oils yourself, though: stick with readymade essential oil skincare products. They'll have the right percentage of oils...

I'm glad for you, navneet2020. Losing weight is an ongoing process. Even when you lose the weight you have to keep it off. Like just because you've lost a stone does not mean you can go back to eating fry-ups and sweets: the weight would pile back on. Losing weight is about healthy food choices and ...

I second MarinaTaylor's post. The best advice I've read online. I write this because MarinaTaylor's advice could've been given to me years ago. In fact, I wish it had. Anxiety is AWFUL and is hard for others to understand. Plus, it takes incredible patience to handle someone suffering with anxiety. ...

I don't have eczema but I do have a red skin flare up around my underarm area: and sometimes it's incredibly itchy. With your skin, perhaps using an aloe vera moisturiser could help? If regular moisturisers leave your skin with a burning sensation, perhaps natural products - like Neil's Yard - could...
Tea Tree Oil is incredibly good for the skin. There are so many skin products with it as an ingredient. The best place to buy such products is the Body Shop: their products are seriously nice. I don't mean to sound like an advert, but that is the shop I'd start with for skincare products: with any i...

I'm afraid such mental health problems cannot be vanished or gotten rid of. They can be treated but not eradicated. Mental health problems can certainly be treated and managed, though: so don't lose hope. Medication in the right doses is excellent, of course. Mental illness is very common these days...
