Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and happiness


649848 tn?1534637300 Although weight is undeniably a risk factor for a host of medical comorbidities, especially at its extremes, it's not a guarantee that any of them will occur. And so the use of a scale to infer the presence or absence of health ignores the actual person standing on the scale. Similarly, scales don't measure lifestyle. There are scads of patients with obesity doing all of those good things—exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, not smoking, cooking with whole ingredients, etc.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!
Avatar f tn You can sue him for Alimony, and Child Support, and all the debts incurred in getting you mental health counseling. Get a job that will help you to save up money to make a move, if this becomes your choice. Then get your own place. As for your daughter. She is not guilty of your husband's behavior. She did not cause it and she doesn't deserve to have to pay that price, just because she is his baby. She is every bit your daughter too, and she needs her Mama more than you can imagine.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
1963551 tn?1325604592 And what if he gets out with a totally new pair of glasses on, gets involved with a new way of life living the 12 steps once and for all and experiencing all the promises that DO happen by working the steps. What if he finds a new freedom and a new happiness, comprehends the word serenity and finds peace. What if his feelings of uselessness and self-pity disappear.....C-mon guys, re-read the bottom of page 83 top of 84 in the BigBook. Has no body experienced these things?
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...
Avatar n tn I am trying to keep positive thoughts; The Secret makes it look easy. I wish you all much happiness and courage. I am not sure I have either today.
Avatar f tn read the story of tim mcgraw in this month's men's health magazine or google it. great example of how to change your life and live without alcohol. also, read through the alcoholism section of this site and you will thank your lucky stars you are not that far. good luck p.s. alcohol ages you dramatically. almost the same as before and after shots of meth addicts.
Avatar f tn how does a man who supposedly loves you say such mean and hurtful things? then today he got p!ssed at the xbox and spiderman game he was playing b/c he was loosing, threw the controller at the wall, broke it. once he was done breaking it he then proceeded to yell at me. first it was for putting the kids down for their nap early. they were tired. red eyes, rubbing them and yawning. so then he just keeps nagging me about it.
Avatar f tn They had a last cup of coffee and everything was fine. They said goodbye to their parents and brother and all was serene. They waved — and that was that." Under a 2002 law, Belgians are allowed to end their own lives if a doctor judges an individual has made his or her wishes clear and is suffering unbearable pain. The case of the twins was unusual because the two men were not approaching the end of their natural lives nor were they terminally ill.
Avatar n tn I know that Neutrogena has a men's line that is fabulous and Clinique also has a great men's line that my boyfriend uses and loves. Your obsessive picking and cleaning of your face might be aggravating it. I think if you are on a regimen that it would really help in addition to medication. Once your skin clears (in the future) there are things you can do to help with the scarring (fraxel lazer surgery - is wonderful:).
Avatar f tn However, happiness, good things, and enjoyment of stuff, can also stress your body. Stress caused headaches are from whenever we overwhelm our bodies. There's such a thing as too much of a good thing. I find that funny movies are a huge stress factor for me, as are days in the park, or things like that. Yes, I'm having fun the whole time, but I'm demanding my body do more than it can easily do.
Avatar f tn Hi All! Need some suggestions/advice. I am a 54 yr old woman who has been spotting/bleeding for the past 3 1/2 years. EVERY DAY! Only went away for 5 months 2 1/2 yrs ago, then on again. Just had an endometrial biopsy at the "clinic" (charity care), and they say I have this complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia. They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous.
1301089 tn?1290670171 All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama’s fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It’s all George Bush’s fault. Take for example the decision of Eric Holder, the president’s attorney general, to hold terrorists’ trials in New York City. Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian. Two disastrous decisions.
Avatar f tn He has mentors at the church and men's groups but he just doesn't open up to them. When he is drunk he lets alot out and I am always trying to comfort him. I am very forward with him. Yes this has caused us to argue, but after a bit it's like he realizes I am right. He started to stop drinking last week, but then we hit a moment that was heart breaking to both of us. And I let him buy more beer. My husband is a wonderful loving husband.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to say if anything I agree with you 100% about one thing you said. Happiness comes from within. You can not look to others to make you happy. People are human and everyone has faults no one can be perfect 100% of the time. I know if I had met my husband sooner, 4 years sooner (we almost met) it would not have worked. I was not at a place where I could be happy. I found my happiness deep inside me and boy when I met my I know this is for life.
Avatar f tn A good part of a woman's libido is in their heads (as we don't have another that drives our thoughts like men do!) You get that fixed, and many other things -especially health problems that are aggravated by stress, will fall into place. Something that may be beneficial for both of you (if she hasn't already) is have your wife seek counseling to get some "survival tools" to help her get herself going again.
Avatar n tn He posted everywhere. Several threads, both Men's and Women's forums. Just a troll, never to be seen or heard from again.
Avatar f tn The sad thing is, no one wants her because she drains the life and happiness out of you daily. I also know it's deliberate most of the time because I can tell she knows what problems she causes and keeps repeating them after she's punished for them. I don't know what to do because I know factually I cannot do this for the next 10 years, I had no intention of raising anymore kids, it was made very plain to me that this mother would NEVER, EVER part with this child so I married again.
Avatar n tn Coughing causes a temporary rise in pressure in the chest and spinal canal, which blocks the areas in the spine where pain originates, according to Men's Health magazine editor Dave Zinczenko. Who knew? You can play tricks on your body to alleviate minor aches and pains. Zinczenko calls them simple self-healing tricks. "Whenever we're feeling achy or under the weather, we reach for the drugs in the medicine cabinet," Zinczenko told
495284 tn?1333897642 We have seen some changes here, some good and some very painful. It is time for all of us to come together and do what we do best and that is to help one another. Everyone here is valued. Noone is more important than the other. Each one of us bring something to the table. Noone should have to feel that they arent needed or wanted here. This forum saved my life and i want everyone to experience the blessings i have. Lets all try to remember where we came from.
Avatar n tn Dr. I think it's important that you read these men's posts. A month after my husband's surgery he said that the power of his orgasm declined... not as much was shooting out and that was a huge part of his sensation. Also if the penis is super swollen from drugs (Viagra) couldn't this also decrease sensitivity. Like when your fingers or feet swell and you lose skin sensitivity. I had a friend whose mother was almost taken off life support because she wasn't responding to pokes of her feet.
Avatar m tn One other feed back, we are all intelligent folks here and it isn't men's view verses woman's. It's just opinions. And believe it or not, we have other men who post here besides just you. You are very welcome to the forum and we are glad to have you but this isn't a sewing circle or something archaic like that. Okay, so I do wish you luck. Marriage is work-------- and that is for sure. By the way, marriage therapy an option???
Avatar n tn This stuff is so hard. I've been with my boyfriend for 10 and a half years and have lived together for 6 of these. I love him and he loves me and I've never once in a million years doubted this. We've been great and happy and all kinds of wonderful.......until the marriage issue raised its head.
Avatar n tn You all deserve better, and it starts with you. I don't know what your story is for playing with men's emotions, but for goodness sake, get a grip, wake up and realize that men are just as human as you are, emotions and all. Start treating them with respect, along with yourself by no longer putting yourself in these "abandoned by men" positions anymore, and your life will start looking up. Do this for yourself and your three children.
Avatar n tn But so many times we have seperated over this, only to get back together and try something different. He has got involved with a Men's Ministry and a rehab class at our church. At first it was going well, but here we are again -- ANOTHER relapse. He took my car a few days ago, and I haven't heard from him since. I am so sick of this disease. But what do you do? You are SUPPOSED to stick by your other half through good times and BAD, not just give up.
175662 tn?1282217256 Once we got married, we graduated a year later, and he started working and I looked for a job, and we were renting a house and had health insurance and that's when we decided to have unprotected sex (together for 4 years, and married for 1). We ended up mc twice after about 8 months of unprotected sex, but are now 38 weeks pregnant with baby number 1 and we just sold our house to move closer to the in-laws. We are both working full-time and have very good health care.
Avatar n tn Next to trust, the most important part of a relationship is putting the other's health and happiness before your own. It's pretty pathetic that a 19 and 20 year old were able to endure something so inconsequential (in the grand scheme of things) better than some of you who have been married for over a decade. I feel sorry for your poor, undervalued wives. I hope they some day find men who will be attracted to their other physical and intellectual aspects which you have failed to appreciate.
