Q. i dont feel normal..

A1I think everyone puts too much emphasis on the term "normal". Everyone has a different normal... What is normal for me is not going to be normal for anyone else. I think it is so important for everyone to refrain from comparing themselves to others... One will never feel normal when comparing oneself to others.

If you are feeling less than normal for YOUR normal, I am sorry to hear that you are feeling that way. Try to remember everything is impermanant and this feeling will pass. You are perfectly you!
A2Well, I feel that humanity is normal. I guess I disagree with you Joseph. I think our support group here can prove that we can help each other by talking and sharing our pain. I think that's a normal and healthy way of life.
A3welcome to the club- no one is normal. humanity is a frikazoid Serengeti which combines all sort of views, religions, quarks and mental states.
a bipolar disorder is just one of them. contemplate as much as you want but it's a part of humanity from the dawn of age... you just have to control your disorder for your own (and for your loved ones) sake.

Q. can you maintain a normal life with bipolar?

I saw a movie about a man who has it and I was wondering how do people who have it manage their lives.
A1Everyone has ups and downs wether or not you have bipolar disorder. A person needs to experience a variety of moods to experience life. Different situations call for a different mood/reaction. The goal is never to eliminate a person with bipolar disorders moods, the goal is to stabilize those moods so they do not become the extream moods that a person with bipolar will experience. It is natural to cry, laugh, get angry, get frusterated etc... Treatment is to stabilize those moods so they dont escillate to suicide, excessive spending, jail etc...
A2and then the ups and downs dissapear totally or are just lighter?
A3With treatment - yes. The treatment "stabilizes" and lessen the tendency towards both "ups" and "downs", enabling the intellectually-intact patients to function normally in their life.

Q. what is a blood test called methymalonate for and what is normal reading

loss of weight no appitate copd patient
AIt's a blood test used, with homocysteine, to evaluate deficiency of vitamin B12 and folic acid, especially when interpretations of blood tests of these vitamins are borderline or problematic.

The normal range is 70 to 270 nmol/L. However, the interpretation of blood test is more complex than simple range, so if you have any questions or concerns about this subject you may want to consult a doctor.

Q. I want to know is this normal to all.

My friend is diagnosed as having mania depression. Now he is 45. When he gets depressed, he gets high blood pressure too. I want to know is this normal to all? He stopped all his medicine.
A1I too have the same problem. My doctor advised that BP can be controlled with meds. I am under medication and my BP is in control. I shall suggest you to go for yoga classes to get peaceful mind and be on regular medication to become normal. First, take your friend to a doctor.
A2I will check this out this afternoon when I will go to a new cardiologist to let me check my heart. Probably he will meseaure the blood pressure too and i am for sure depressive. So i will tell you later this day what happened.

It is possible to regulate with water and crystaline salt the blood pressure. Go for this for example on this page and look out for Pr. Peter Ferreira (bio-physician):

Q. How are cancer cells similar to normal cells, and how are they different?

I know that a similarity would be cells regenerate, and a difference would be cancer cells grow uncontrollably. Is there anything else?
A1I learned a lot of new things from the answers. Thanks.
A2Well, normal cells found in our bodies are constantly dividing to provide replacement for the ones that are also constantly dying (apoptosis) in our bodies. These are all normal procedures.
Cancerous cells also divide continuously, the difference is that they don't die (apoptosis) and just continue to grow. Thus, they are abnormal in that they are not programmed to die. This is when the masses of cells form.
Sometimes cancerous cells can invade your lymphatic system or blood system and this is how they travel to different parts of your body. This is known as metastasis. Metastatic cancerous cells are malignant in that they are not self-limiting and can spread throughout the body.
A3There are 6 hallmarks of a cancer cell:
1 - They are able to produce molecules that promote their own growth
2 - They are resistant to molecules from other cells that would limit their growth
3- They are able to avoid apoptosis (normal cell death)
4 - They are able to replicate endlessly
5- They are able to promote the generation of new blood vessels to supply them with nutrients
6 - They are able to metastasize (migrate) to other regions of the body

Q. My blood sugars are usually in the range of 180 (when I first get up) to about 240 in evening.. normal?

I have been told I have Diabetes Type II. one doctor put me on metformin.. then that doc retired. Next doc said I don't need metformin. But I have noticed by checking blood sugars at home, they seem a little high. Also have been having some sweating, headaches, and some pain in feet and weird burning in feet.. Is that from high blood sugar? What is high? Should I tell my doc what my readings are? Do you think I need to get on a medication? I am trying diet modification and some exercise (I have a bad back and can't do much exercise or walking)... just don't want to get damage to my body from high blood sugars. thanks
AYour readings does describe diabetes, and metformin is considered as the first line treatment for diabetes, however, giving diet and exercise a chance before starting meds was considered a legitimate approach before. I think that informing your doctor is a very good idea. The complaints your describe may result from diabetes, although not necessarily.

Take care,

Q. is it normal to be addiected to oral sex

Ain an experiment they did on mice, they inserted an electrode to the pleasure area in the mouse's brain and every time he hit a certain pedal- it sent an electrical charge and aroused the pleasure area in the brain.
the mouse didn't care about food, females and nothing else. he just continued to push the pedal like crazy until he died.
we are addicted to pleasure too. what ever arouses your pleasure areas in the brain.
