Q. Dear friends, I am 90 or 85 pounds.Is it because I’m eating too much?

Dear friends, I am 90 or 85 pounds and every one at my school always say that I’m skinny but it seems like my tummy is growing a lot faster than my body. Is it because I’m eating too much? Please help! I can cut down on eating, but do I need to???? (I am using my uncles’ user id)
AI don’t think you need to stop eating Liam, to make yourself feel better, engage in a physical activity like walking, gym, cycling, shuttle, tennis etc. There was a time I thought I was fat then I stopped eating as much, now that I have lost 2stones in 1year everyone says how did you become anorexic.....I regret it badly and now its hard for me to gain that weight again!!!! I am only 16 and when I thought I was fat I believe that was puppy fat and myself, so may be your age matters too.

Q. I’m Markel;one of my friends is suffering from depression.

I’m Markel; one of my friends is suffering from depression. I forced him to consult a doctor but he refused to go. From his young age he hates meds. I would like to know the treatment mostly doctors prefer?
A1Hello Markell, most of the doctors prefer psychotherapy as the first treatment except in cases where depressive symptoms are so severe and immediate relief is necessary. Meds is usually the second choice, which doctors prefer after a comprehensive and competent trial of psychotherapy. Combined use of medications and psychotherapy is another treatment. Psychotherapy can be effective alternative to the use of medications. So explain this to your friend and take him to your local doctor.
A2...there is always at least one good solution. It can be, that it will take some time, so it is important to coach him. Don't let him drink to get drunken. So you will win his trust and then he will be more open to see a psychiatrist. To visit a psychiatrist is not the end of the world. He is not mad. The doctor is then able to give him for example a mood-stabilizer. Keep always contact with your friend. A phone-call, a mail, a letter, a little present. Give him again the pleasure to live with us here on this planet. Perhaps he would love to have a pet. This will keep him occupied and give him a job to take care to a living being. Keep us informed and tell us what you can share, so that we can better understand his situation. Show him that he is not alone, that you love him with all your heart, because he feels himself alone with all his problems.
Thank you Markel to be here with us. I wish both of you success.
A3Hi Markel, don't force your friend. It should be an invetation. What is the greatest problem that your friend has? Did he lost his job? Did his girl-friend quit him without any reason? You have to find this out. Then you can start to invite him to make some activities he loves. Invite him for a game of billiard for example. Pay the bill for your friend. It is important that your friend can during these moments stop to think about his problems, because they are consuming his vivacity, his happiness, the pleasure to live and so on. Play parlour games with him. Triomino, Rummikub or make with him other games that he loves. You must look as good as you can, that he has again some pleasure, by showing him your true friendship. Forgive him when he is sometimes not so kind. He has really trouble and needs a lot of compassion. Don't suffer with him. Stay over this. Help him to get a new job, a new girl, whatever it is. Guide him, protect him. Tell me if he thinks to make suicide...

Q. I’m very upset. Plz give me any suggestion.

My 3 year old kid is showing some symptoms of Fibromyalgia. I want to know the best way to cure fibromyalgia in children, or at least ease the pain. I’m very upset. Plz give me any suggestion.
A1fibromyalgia is a rare disease. and to determine very decisively that your 3 year old son has it- well...i would consider something else first. and if you are so worried- go see a doc to check him out.
A2My best advice is to make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep, take a multiple vitamin, and keep him/her active in at least low impact sports. Fibromyalgia is a neurotransmitter disorder and certain foods can trigger similar symptoms to Fibro.

Q. I’m often getting mood swings and depression.

I’m fresher to my college. I’m often getting mood swings and depression. I don’t have close friend in this college, to share my thoughts. And I think there’s no point in life. And I don't want to do anything. Help me.
AWell, depression and mood swings are common to all. So don’t worry about that. You need to talk to someone who is close to you and try to talk with your doctor, and a small amount of meds will help out a lot and won’t make you sick. Good luck!!!

Q. I’m doing a dissertation on alcoholism and I’m looking for recent books written on the subject?

Looking for recent books written about alcoholism, need some up to date books with recent research on the subject. Does anyone recommend or know of any.
A1There is a recent true book called Mother's Ruin by Nicola Barry which is a bout alcoholism. And also the writer Augusten Burroughs writes a lot about alcohol Hope this helps.
A2It's really quite simple. Go to the Barnes & Noble website, search for "alcoholism" and you will have over three thousand books from which to choose. The question is: how much money do you want to spend?


AThe current preferred therapy for Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is catheter ablation. This procedure involves inserting a tube (catheter) into an artery through a small cut near the groin up to the heart area. When the tip reaches the heart, the small area that is causing the fast heart rate is destroyed using a special type of energy called radiofrequency.
Catheter ablation cures this disorder in most patients. The success rate for the procedure ranges between 85 - 95%.

ask your doc about it.
