Patient discussion about SMILE

Q. Depressive? How many jokes do you need a day to have at least one smile in your face? To be depressive is no fun. I started my depression 26 years ago. During 12 years I could not laugh loud anymore. You know - the " lol " in your chats. So my personal medication were jokes, comedy films on tv or to rent a funny VHS or DVD from a store and have the fun that I needed to forget a little bit all my trouble. Find out what you need. Here I will put from time to time a joke, to keep you laughing a little.

A. I love the jokes. Made my day!!!

Q. if a baby hardly smiles at 3 months, can it indicate autism? he smiles only once a day more or less and even then it looks more of a spasm in the face than a real smile...

A. everything is under control!!!! just wanted to let you know that the baby is fine! he smiles at last and grabs fingers, communicates... that was a very big stone I just got off my chest...thanks for listening anyway. you're great!

* Geographer Vaclav Smil regards China's water shortages, high population, declining farmland, pollution, and ecosystem degradation as "realities that weaken its food production capacity."
