Q. i am diagnosed as bipolar ii and my doctor told me that i will not be able to participate in any activities. I am a son of a single parent. My father left my mom when I was 14. My mom worked hard and brought up me and my younger sister. For the past one year I forced my mom to stop going for job then I became the bread winner of my family. But recently I am diagnosed as bipolar II and my doctor told me that I will not be able to participate in any activities to prepare for work for more than six months, am I eligible for social security to take care of my family who is depending on me. I don’t want my mom to go for job again after she is used to be at home. Kindly be in my shoes and guide me please.

A. It is very refreshing to see a person so concerned with their family. It is however a big responsibility, you have to be careful not to put too much pressure on yourself. Look into the social security and I agree with Smith talk to a lawyer and see if they can help you. You have to be sure with all of your responsibility that you are taking care of yourself and taking time for yourself. You are very lucky to have a great family, if they want to help out and get jobs to help financially let them. Think of it in terms of the long run. They may have to work for 6 months or a year but in that time you are going to be working on you and your health. You will be more help to them in the future if you take the time to help yourself now!

There are options here make sure you talk to your family and educate them along the way about your illness. I bel

Q. Regular participation in aerobic exercise lowers an individual's risk of developing cancer? I am a regular participant of aerobic, so the regular participation in aerobic exercise lowers an individual's risk of developing cancer?

A. You have some reason to be happy. Research suggests that exercise often modifies some of the risk factors associated with certain kinds of cancer. Obesity has been linked to cancer of the breast and the female reproductive system. Regular exercise has been shown to help promote weight loss. Several studies have also found that men who worked at sedentary jobs for most of their lives had a greater incidence of colon cancer than those in more active jobs. Exercise will not compensate the effects of a high-fat diet or smoking. Still it can contribute, even indirectly, to a reduced risk of cancer. As such, exercising regularly is recommended by the ACS [American Cancer Society] as an integral part of its cancer prevention program.

Q. when i do sport i feel kind of a weakness all over my knees and i get really tired moving forward .. is there any medical explanation for this ?

A. It is hard for me to understand if the weakness you're describing is originally from your legs, or it is general weakness / shortness of breath like symptoms. Also, not knowing your age it is hard for me to think about several arthritic conditions that occur mainly to adult over 50. In any case, if this tiredness bothers you, you should see your doctor or an orthopedist, to see if they can examine you more extensively and try and help with this problem.
