Let's Get to Know Me (Bipolar Disorder)
Maybe you guys thinking why I put that as my title (Let's get to know me) for the Bipolar Disorder? I don't want to hide anything from anybody especially from you guys ...
Yes...Yasss... I do have Bipolar disorder... So let's talk about it...
What is it exactly? We keep hear about it.. you Bipolar, She/He bipolar... but what is it exactly?
If we google it, Bipolar disorder, we can find that Bipolar is a mental disorder marked by alternating periods of depression.
Bipolar is manic-depressive illness when the brain causes weird shift in mood , energy and the ability of people with bipolar to do activity to do day to day activity.
There's 4 types of Bipolar which are:
So if you have or you know someone that have this, please help them. Bipolar can be treated. How to treat the Bipolar?
Some people with Bipolar sometime thinking to commit suicide. To prevent that. (Suicide prevention)
Hope this is help! I HAD suicidal thought ONCE! but ThanksGod ,,,,That went away....
It's hard to live with this alone. friends and family who understanding walk with you through it are best. Thanks God, I have the best MOM in the world and also Aunt that help me go through it.
Ladies... (and maybe some gentlemen who want to know about this), I write this blog especially for you (and also for me). Before I went to the BLOGHER16 and interview Karen (one of the patient with endometriosis) and Doctor Parveen Vahora. I don't really think that endometriosis really serious.
So what is endometriosis? Hmmm... every women have uterus right? And in the normal uterus, there's a tissue that line inside it (it called endometrium). BUT.. in women who have endometriosis, that endometrium / tissue lining outside the uterus, it can be in the ovary, fallopian tube, even in the bowel (IMAGINE how painful it will be???)
This will cause pain (Duh !! of course!!) and problem with the menstruation. Some women will experience the inflammation of this endometriosis or even bleeding and it will make it difficult to get pregnant.
But don't worry... fortunately there's treatment available for this :) ...
Usually MD will offer you the pain medication first before they offer you to get the surgery. Hormone therapy also sometimes used by MD to relieve pain for the patient's with endometriosis.
Hmmm..... How do I know if I have endometriosis or not? This are some signs and symptoms so you can decide whether you need to see your MD or not yet :
Now you know what is endometriosis, what is the sign and symptoms, and what are the treatments available for it. But what should you do if you still waiting for your MD appointment? And in the meantime you have a lot of pain?
Great! You know now that endometriosis is serious but this is treatable. Even though nobody know why and how this happen? Some people said it's because the retrograde menstruation, the blood go backward to the fallopian tube (huh?!) or the surgical scar (the scar from the surgical attach to the endometrial cell) or even immune system disorder (in the other word, because this immune system have some "disorder" so this is become stupid, can't recognize that this endometrium cell is inside or outside uterus).
But again... nobody know what the real cause of it. The important thing is this is treatable! That's it!! Thanks GOD! Ok,Ladies! I hope this information help you understand what is Endometriosis and when you need to seek help.
P.S: Thank you www.MeInEndo.com
I often hear people googling about their symptoms first before they really go to see doctor. But do you think the information in the Internet can replace your doctor visit?
Especially in this era where we can call it the telemedicine era. We can easily download the application in our smartphones. With this application, you can texts, call, video chat, etc with million doctors not only in USA but all over the world.
I realize that sometimes going to see doctor is a pain in "you know what". From the parking cost, the line in the reception, and the waiting hour. But do you really think you can replace your doctor with this "telemedicine" ??
Let's talk about some of the applications that people use to get their health.
So now it's up to you.... Do you think you can replace your doctor visit with this "telemedicine"??
When the first time you hear about the words "Autism" or "Autism Spectrum Disorder", you probably wondering and have so many questions. I read about the confusion in the news, social media, and every where about this disorder. Some people believe that this cause by the vaccine that children receive so I tried to collect informations and I want to share with all of you. But first of all, let's find out what is Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) ?
The study said that Autism is developmental disability that appears in the first 3 years of the children life. It is the disorder of the brain. Autism more common in boys than girls.
So how do you know if your children is autistic?
In the medical field, there's no test for Autism yet but we can find out by the presence or lack of some behavior.
Children with Autism usually have behavioral symptom in :
The first year of life, most of children learn to walk and talk, the children with autism has very inconsistent development, she or he might start to develop normally but then she or he seem STOP, may start to talk but then STOP. It is really important to making an autism diagnosis.
Children with autism also have difficulty to socialize with other children. It's not because they can't interact with others but they interact with others in the odd way. It's not they don't want to have a friend but they don't know how.
Other area that autistic children have difficulty are speech, language, also nonverbal communication. The problem is not that he or she does't want to talk but they don't know how to starting conversation so they rather do not communicate.
The last area is the interests. Autistic children have some odd behavioral or interests, for example rocking, hand flapping, spinning, or pacing.
So what the cause of autism ?
A lot of people thinking that the vaccine cause autism. Some people think that there's a link between thimerosal (a mercury-based preservative used in some vaccine) and autism but IT NEVER BEEN PROVEN.
Even though never been proven, thimerosal has been removed from all routinely given childhood vaccines in USA.
Autism is developmental disorder. We still do not know what causes autism but scientists are making significant breakthroughs in the genetics of autism.
Is there any cure or treatment for Autism ?
Research found out that early intervention will help autistic children to learn social and communication skills plus daily living function.
Most of children with autism can improve with early diagnosis, complete intervention program, and support at home !!
The intervention that used to treat autism are:
But any kind of treatment that you will do for your children, it is important for you to always do your own research and read more information about it.
I know it will be hard to parent or any family member to have your loved one diagnose with Autism or even any kind of disorders. Parent can be helpful for other parents. As a parent, you can educate more by read and do research about it. But most important is LOVE YOUR CHILD, TREAT HIM or HER AS NORMALLY AS POSSIBLE. Your child is just different but again, every child is different.
Finally, please think twice before you blame the vaccine which can help your children, protect your children to get other disease. (just saying)
