Patient discussion about lie

Q. Hello I have a problem here.Can alcoholism make you lie and cheat? Hello I have a problem here. I have a baby through a married man. He claims that he was not in his senses due to alcohol and that’s how I got pregnant. Can alcoholism make you lie and cheat? He will continue to lie and cheat for the rest of his life. I don't think he'll want to be cured. Do you really want to live with someone like that? Are you going to tell your baby that his daddy is allowed to lie and cheat?

A. Dear Saloni. I wish you had not got into this situation. Extreme desperation is filling you with a very foolish hope. If you had your head together then you'd know damn well that this guy is a scumbag unworthy of your time. This guy already has two women too many, while on the other side of town there are good men who are all alone. Get away from him now!

Q. If the lie is our truth & living the truth feels fake & unreal how do we persevere to the needed chang there's the real me, good & underdeveloped. there is the worldly me, challenged as all of us probably are. there is the addict me, afflicted half or more of my life, developed & strong. two out of three are tough odds to deal with...

A. the battle against your own self is harsh and there will be casualties. reality is based on your own definition of the world around you, but it also based on how the world defines you. this is your escape from the inner struggle- define yourself and your actions not by your own faulty judgment but by how the world and it's moral judge you.
good luck.

Q. Having chronic headaches, start in base of neck and progresses to migraine, worse when lying on stomach. Why? I have been having chronic headaches for the past 2 weeks. They start in the base of my neck and become migraines. They intensify when I lay on my stomach, blood rushes and they throb. Sometimes I can give myself relief by pressing firmly on my head or keeping my neck in a certain position. Just wondering if anyone knows what might be causing them.

A. Pinched nerve, bad posture is my problem anyway. I have a pinched nerve in my neck and my posture is horrible which causes me to get the worst headaches and they always start at the base of the neck and I always thought I had great posture (set up straight and all), but I was soooo wrong. Check with a Doctor and seek help from a Chiropractor if possible. They can do wonders. But for now, try lying on your back with a pillow or towel rolled up and placed under your neck only. It will support your neck and give it a nice crack too that helps a good deal too. That also helps keep the headaches away. Do you get sick to your stomach when the headaches come on?
