Re: what is type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes affects my father and my best friend. I am glad to know what exactly it means. Thankfully I have had a blood test - a few weeks just gone - and I hope there is no diabetes. I shall be seeing my doctor in a week or two. I certainly don't want to have diabetes. A useful question: and a...

Re: what is anxiety and what is the solution of it

I have suffered anxiety: and hated it. It wrecked my life. I could not do normal things and people turned away from me: to be blunt. When anxiety is paralysing people lack sympathy and expect you to "just get on with it". But that isn't easy. Anxiety lost me friends and being able to work ...

Re: what is bipolar disorder and what is the solution of it

I do sometimes wonder if I've got this. My moods are like a rollercoaster: I can dip from high to lows at the drop of a hat. I have been diagnosed with something else, but I think I have bi-polar: not what the psychiatrist has said I have. My moods are awful and it isn't great going through motions ...

Would You Consider Shaving Your Head?

I would consider it. In fact, in a few years, I may well do so.

It seems radical, but I will one-day. Possibly when I am 50 years old. Note: I wouldn't shave my head because of cancer, but out of choice. I'd start with a crop, then see what I thought.

Over to you.

Re: Personal Behaviour

I'm sorry you're going through this: behaviour does change during times of stress and stress can make you lash out and just be aggressive generally speaking. I appreciate it is hard for you, but finding an outlet for your frustration - and grief, even - is the only way forward. I think talking to a ...

Re: How to reduce stress levels?

I do think everyone deals with stress in different ways: some go to bed early, so as not to wake up tired and cranky. Others talk to family and friends, while others see the doctor or a counsellor. Medication is an option, but there are many ways to deal with stress without resorting to medication. ...

How Do You Support An Older Father?

I don't mean physically, but emotionally - rather than mentally. I shall make sure to include my dad in daily activities and just help him out with the house, shopping, etc. But how do I encourage him to go out and socialize more? It must be very lonely for him with no partner in his life. His compu...

Re: Bereavement

You've suffered a terrible loss. These feelings will never leave: bereavement can last a lifetime. I have nearly lost a close friend - Michael - to dementia and I am always upset about it. I will never forget who he was. No one will ever forget those special memories of their loved ones and those im...

Re: I want to be okay with being alone

I can understand where you're coming from and the struggle you're facing. But you are NOT alone in your life and you must have friends who do care and do also want to connect with you. You need to open your heart in a way that doesn't leave you vulnerable. In a way that shows people you want friends...

Re: How to reduce stress levels?

I agree with those tips to reduce stress: I'd advise them myself. I do know that a lot of people try to reduce stress by drinking alcohol. But this is not a good way to deal with stress. Alcohol can actually worsen it. Plus, there is a danger of being addicted to alcohol if the solution every night ...
