Admissions of a Hypochondriac

Sensitive Eyes Sensorimotor OCD

Posted 12-23-2014 at 08:29 PM by daniel90

Hi friends,

So Stressed

So I'm not even getting unemployment because my boss is trying to fight me on it and say I quit. Yeah, right, like I would be stupid enough to quit a job without another job lined up. I am still having stomach problems, but they are not as bad since the gastroenterologist put me on a really strong probiotic called VSL#3 (it's some kind of medical food that you have to present a card to the pharmacist to get from behind the counter). So I take that every morning and Bentyl when I get cramps. I don't...

Halloween can be a scary time for some children. Attractions, decorations, costumes, haunted houses, parks and even trick or treating can stir up intense fear. When you have a terrified child on your hands, it can be difficult for them and your entire family to enjoy the popular holiday. Consider taking these few steps, and perhaps you can minimize their concerns before October 31 arrives.

As social media becomes more a part of our lives, there is a growing debate about whether social networks like ********, Instagram and Twitter are having an effect on our self-image. Several studies would suggest yes and, depending on the person and the feedback they receive from the public on these sites, eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia may develop.
