David: I want to mention here that Alexandra is 15 years old ayurslim 60 caps with mastercard. Her Peace buy ayurslim 60caps on-line, Love and Hope eating disorders site is here in the Eating Disorders Community. Alexandra: In the beginning I lost about ten pounds, but after that, bulimia only caused me to gain a few pounds of water weight, but I never lost anymore actual weight after that. Unfortunately, with eating disorders, especially with bulimia, since those that suffer just from bulimia do not reach a dangerously low weight, it is almost easy to hide the disordered eating behaviors ( eating disorder symptoms ), so no one suspected there was a problem. Before starting towards recovery, I definitely did feel that I would be failing my eating disorder and also that I did not deserve help. I had to give it a shot, though, because I knew that I would not survive much longer eventually realize that you have nothing to prove, hon. There is nothing good about being successful at dying. I know how competitive the world of eating disorders is, but you have to learn that nothing good comes from being competitive over something that will wreck your body and mind. David: Some of the audience questions center around medical advice. Alexandra, have you made any efforts towards recovery from bulimia and anorexia? Alexandra: I can only give my opinion on medical related questions. No matter what, and I know this is hard to do for sufferers, see your doctor when in doubt. About me making any efforts towards recovery, definitely. Every day, I work harder to break free from purging and starving. I think the root of that is learning to accept yourself for you, not a sick person or a "broken" one or one that suffers from an Eating Disorder, but you as yourself as a person. You have to learn over time to accept yourself no matter what, instead of constantly finding flaws and believing that there is one true "perfect" person out there that you must attain. Alexandra: Because I am only 15 and still unable to drive, I am not seeing a therapist. I have brought the issue up with my mother, about seeing someone just to "talk," and she was none-too-pleased with the idea. So, currently I am fighting on my own and with the support of friends. I want to make a note here that you really cannot fully recover on your own or just from support from your family and friends. You eventually will need professional help at some point or another, as you are battling against your own mind and are unable to distinguish between what is too much, too little, etc. What was the main thing that helped you accept life and enjoy it, rather than giving in to the eating disorder? I think that when I started to come out of the extreme purging and fasting behaviors I started to feel more energized, and then, I was able to see life in a different light. I began ever so slowly to see that I did not need to blame myself for everything under the sun, and that if I tried to get rid of my pain by purging and starving, that I was not solving anything and instead just adding onto my problems. It was really a combination of things that helped me to start recovering. When I did eat, it was nice to not immediately think "Dear God, how am I going to get rid of this? Alexandra: I began to try and recover about a year and a half ago, when I was 14. It has to be something the person wants, and at that time I finally started wanting to end this battle. David: Was there something that happened in your life or thinking that triggered a change in your attitude - making you want to recover? My throat hurt constantly and I was breaking down crying everyday in my room from what was going on in my head. I always knew deep down that I could not continue on like this. Before I started to recover, I was cutting myself and contemplating suicide, and I knew that I had to do SOMETHING, anything, to help this situation. I had been told always almost the same thing by other people who I had met, that also had suffered or had recovered -- "do whatever you can to try and get better.

Shelters offer protection and allow the abused person to hide from their abuser ayurslim 60 caps overnight delivery. In some situations generic 60 caps ayurslim free shipping, it presents a practical problem, in that someone with a career may need to drop out of their job and economic support when making this change. Sometimes it is best to call the police and have the abuser physically removed, then take out a restraining order. Bein: A typical pattern is for the abuser to "see the light" after perpetrating the abuse. Often they are just as trapped in the cycle of abuse, as is the abused (not that this excuses them). I think it is more difficult for the abuser to change, and would need more professional help than it is for the abused to change. One can receive counseling at a shelter, even if they are not ready to go there to live. Abusers are usually cowards when they come up against someone more powerful. The domestic abuse builds them up, just for a moment, then they feel even worse about themselves because of what they have done. David: One of our audience members, NYMom, is being abused by her son. She says he has punched her several times and given her a black eye. Bein: She should call in the authorities, and make them do their job. This has to stop as soon as possible, or it will get worse. The authorities can and must deal with the medical issues. I feel like he throws the line out and reels me in repeatedly. However, this niceness only lasts no more than three to four days. Once he thinks he has me back, he turns into the monster again. I want to get out of this, without having to hear the begging and crying from him that he is sorry and will never do it again. Bein: If you are really ready to assert your rights, then I suggest that you call the police when he hurts you, then get a restraining order. If you feel that you would be in danger, then go to a shelter. However, you have to stay tough, and not back down when he is nice, and goes through the "roses" phase. It may be wise to seek professional help for this one. Recently, I was assaulted by a stranger and I want to know how these people find me. I must first say, Lumpyso, that it is not your fault! This may be your body posture, closing yourself in front with your arms, the way you look at someone, or other non-intentional ways that you show you are powerless, however, this is correctable! David: By the way, Lumpyso, and everyone else here tonight, we had a great conference on just that subject -- why those who have been abused are open to re-abuse and what to do about it. The transcript is from our conference on " The Damage Caused by Sexual Abuse. I found out after my husband died, that he was a child sexual abuser. It seems like child sexual abuse makes you a target for life. So, the abuse my husband dished out was not accepted by the courts in the divorce process. For me, I would not give someone a second chance if I were hit. Alohio: How many abused women feel they "deserve" what they get because they are females? Bein: Alohio, I think that a lot of abused women feel they deserve it. This idea that the victim deserves the abuse, somehow brought it on her/himself, is changing.

For example order 60 caps ayurslim free shipping, studies show that parents of some children suffering from ADHD also were diagnosed as having the illness buy ayurslim 60caps amex. Investigators have suggested many other theories, but their validity has not been established. A child should undergo a complete medical evaluation to ensure an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment. Or another physical or emotional illness may be contributing to the behavioral problem. Treatment can include the use of medications, special educational programs that help the child keep up academically, and psychotherapy. Between 70 and 80 percent of children with ADHD respond to medications when they are properly used. Medication allows the child a chance to improve his attention span, perform tasks better, and control his impulsive behavior. As a result, children get along better with their teachers, classmates and parents, which improves their self-esteem. Also, the effects of the medication help them gain the benefits of educational programs geared toward their needs. Like virtually all medications, those used for ADHD have side effects. These include insomnia, loss of appetite and, in some cases, irritability, stomach aches or headaches. Such side effects can be controlled by adjusting the dosage or timing of the medication. Psychotherapy is commonly used in combination with medications, as are school and family consultation. By working with the therapist, a child can learn to cope with his or her disorder and the reaction of others to it, and develop techniques to better control his or her behavior. At certain ages children seem to have more fears than at others. Nearly all children develop fears of the dark, monsters, witches, or other fantasy images. As in adults, simple phobias in children are overwhelming fears of specific objects such as an animal, or situations such as being in the dark, for which there is no logical explanation. One study reported that as many as 43 percent of children aged six to 12 in the general population have seven or more fears, but these are not phobias. In fact, few children who suffer from fears or even mild phobias get treatment. However, a child deserves professional attention if he or she is so afraid of dogs, for example, that he or she is terror-stricken when going outside regardless of whether a dog is nearby. Treatment for childhood phobias is generally similar to that for adult phobias. Combined treatment programs are helpful, including one or more of such treatments as desensitization, medication, individual and group psychotherapy, and school and family consultation. Over time, the phobia either disappears or substantially decreases so that it no longer restricts daily activities. As its name implies, separation anxiety disorder is diagnosed when children develop intense anxiety, even to the point of panic, as a result of being separated from a parent or other loved one. It often appears suddenly in a child who has shown no previous signs of a problem. At home, they may cling to their parents or "shadow" them by following closely on their heels. Often, they complain of stomachaches, headaches, nausea and vomiting. They may have heart palpitations and feel dizzy and faint. When they are separated from a parent, they become preoccupied with morbid fears that harm will come to them, or that they will never be reunited. Separation anxiety may give rise to what is known as school phobia. Children refuse to attend school because they fear separation from a parent, not because they fear the academic environment. Sometimes they have mixed fears--fear of leaving the parents as well as fear of the school environment. Children should receive a thorough evaluation before treatment is started. For some, medications can significantly reduce the anxiety and allow them to return to the classroom. These medications may also reduce the physical symptoms many of these children feel, such as nausea, stomachaches, dizziness or other vague pains. Generally, psychiatrists use medications as an addition to psychotherapy. Both psychodynamic play therapy and behavioral therapy have been found helpful in reducing anxiety disorders.

This type of music can have a pronounced beneficial effect on your physiological functions. It can slow your pulse and heart rate, lower your blood pressure, and decrease your levels of stress hormones. It promotes peace and relaxation and helps to induce sleep. Nature sounds, such as ocean waves and rainfall, can also induce a sense of peace and relaxation. I have patients who keep tapes of nature sounds in their cars and at home for use when they feel more stressed. Play relaxing music often when you are aware of increased emotional and physical tension. Massage can be extremely therapeutic for women who feel anxious. Gentle touching either by a trained massage therapist, your relationship partner, or even yourself can be very relaxing. Tension usually fades away relatively quickly with gentle, relaxed touching. The kneading and stroking movement of a good massage relaxes tight muscles and improves circulation. If you can afford to do so, I recommend treating yourself to a professional massage during times of stress. There are also many books available that instruct people how to massage themselves.
