Is Anxiety Disorder Generally Followed By Depression?

I am going on an assumption that you wonder if depression follows anxiety from your question. If so, they walk hand to hand, for me. You can make generalizations such is this. I understood my depression but I didn’t understand what anxiety was. You might consider reading up on these types of issues. I really like bumping into some writing by others sufferers on the subject. I use Mayo Clinic and, the one I go to first for information is Psych Central. Information really helps me understand my diseases. peace, Bob Continue reading >>

    As always a history is taken. Laboratory evaluation includes serum glucose, serum electrolytes (with calculation of the anion gap), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and plasma creatinine, urinalysis and urine ketones by dipstick, plasma osmolality, serum ketones (if urine ketones are present). That gives the needed information: diabetes with hyperosmolality and ketosis.

What Was The Most Incorrect Self-diagnosis You've Encountered In Your Practice As A Doctor?

Not myself, but a colleague of mine. This extremely embarrassed middle aged man informed him that he had done a Google search and discovered that he was suffering from venereal warts. This was going on for several years, he tried a multiple of ointments, creams, crystals and what not without any success. After a brief investigation my colleague found that it wasn’t warts at all, but rather skin tags. Now these are harmless benign growths resulting from skin-skin or skin-clothing friction. The patient had several of these in the groin area and on the inside of his upper thighs. It’s rather easy to work out why he came to the conclusion of venereal warts. In his mind he was already convinced they were warts and googled it, discovering that one basically gets three kinds (there are a few more) - common warts (the type that mostly children get on their hands and knees), plantar warts (on the soles of your feet) and genital or venereal warts. Since his weren’t on his hands, knees or feet, but rather close to the genital area, that was it! My colleague went on to explain to him that it was nothing what he thought it to be and that it could easily be treated. He needed several reass Continue reading >>

What Makes A Person?

I’ve been in mental health treatment since August. I’m currently on my third psychopharmacological drug and am attending therapy. Therapy has mostly helped by making me understand how much I already know, which I had previously grossly underestimated, and by increasing consistency of application of that knowledge. It’s been slow but useful. Drugs have been a lot more interesting. Descartes determined his existence by asserting that he thought. His self was proven because he was capable of performing the action of thought himself. Meanwhile, I have watched chemicals I buy in a bottle change my thoughts. What force does a self have to think, when chemistry can change those thoughts more easily and completely, for good and ill alike, than I can through my will and choice alone? What self remains if chemistry has more impact upon the thoughts within my own mind than my own agency? According to modern understanding, the brain is the house of the mind, which emerges from the soupcon of chemical and electrical impulses that surge through our nervous system. It’s those impulses that allow our thoughts, feelings, and reactions alike. Beyond that is nothing. Dead, unconscious flesh t Continue reading >>
