  • When I first wake up or even just after lying down for a long time my heart feels like it is racing?

    My heart feels like it is pounding out of my chest and my chest feels very tight. I usually also feel light headed and have a slight headache. I have been known to get liht headed if I stand up too fast but this is always before I even sit up whil still lying in bed. When I check my pulse it is normal and if I concentrate on the pulse the "racing" goes away and heart feels normal. What would cause this? Any ideas?

  • I think he is lieing...help?

    My nine year old son told me he wrote this and Ido not believe him. It does not sound like something a nine year old would write or even think of. I know it is not a huge deal but if he is plagiarizing now I believe he will continue. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Maybe you're the one

    Maybe you are the one for me

    because you own my heart, my soul

    you own all of me, baby.

    There is only one way to figure

    if I am going to be right back

    and if you're still here when I get back

    I will know you are the one for me

    but if your not I won't know.

    You're the one for me but

    I don't know because you are so beautiful or

    because we have so much in common

    but because your still here which means

    you listened to my song so let me

    sing it one more time.

    I know you're the one for me

    but I don't know if I'm the one

    for you and I can't stand

    not knowing so please please please

    just tell me cause I can't stand it.

  • Is it possible to be pregnant?

    I had my tubes tied in April. I have had my perios every month since. Before the surgery I had a light period that lasted 7-8 days since the surgery I have a had a heavy period that lasts only 3-4 days.

    Four the past 5-6 months I have had serious cravings for bacon and eggs. I never really thought about it i just ate the eggs.

    I woke up the this morning with a bad stomach ache. I do have diareah so that could explain it but since this morning it went from an ache to more and more pain. The pain is coming and going and getting worse. I do not have innsurance and can not afford to go for a doctor for them to tell me I have the flu.

    The pain really resembles labor pain. Can I be pregnant and not have any symptoms including weight gain.

  • Should I take the gifts back?

    My son is six years old and is usually a very good little boy. Last night he searched through my closet (where he knew where he was not supposed to be) and found all his Christmas gifts. I have finished shopping so these were all his gifts many of whom he has really wanted for a long time. We have very little money to go around so my kids only get things on their birthday and Christmas and NEVER for just because.

    He still believes in Santa (probably for the last year). If I still give him these gifts he will know they did not come from Santa because he has already seem them in my closet. If I take them back not only do I not know what to replace them with but his birthday is not until June so it will be a very long time until he can get the things he truly wants.

    Please give me your opinions and advise. If your advise is to not take the gifts back please include what I should do about any consequences that should happen for the snooping.

  • Should I let my son be discharged?

    My son is 23 months old and as of friday weighed 19 pounds. He has lost more and more weight over the last two months. He has thrown up almost all food eaten all his life. So in August he has surgery that made it impossible for him to throw up. Now instead of throwing up he has had constant diarrhea. 14 months age a g-tube was placed and since then has only gained 2 pounds.

    Friday I flew 2000 miles to take him to Riley Children's hospital in Indianapolis where i lived until june and then moved to Montana. In Montana there is no specialists and the PCP has given up so we flew here to see the specialists again.

    We have been here 6 days. The doctors have run no test at all. They have placed him back on a feeding pump and I am being told he will stay on the pump indefinitely...until he can eat enough by mouth. At this time he eats almost nothing. Dinner tonight he ate 1/2 chicken nuggets and 1 french fry. He did not eat any food by mouth until 19 months old because he aspirated. Now that he can eat he fights it with all he has.

    They are planning on releasing him tomorrow. i still do not have any answers to why he can not handle 6 - 8 ounces of fluid at once without getting sick. He is the size of a 12 month old and a normal 12 month old can easily handle a 8 ounce bottle but he can not. I want to why but I have gotten no answers. I feel as though the Pump is a band aid. yes he can eat and not get sick and therefore will gain weight but what happens later on after he is taken off the pump. I think he will lose all the weight that he has gained and we will be right back where were at now.

    Do I allow him to be discharged and take him home to his Daddy and brothers or do I demand the 2nd opinion no one thinks I need. I know that you can not give me medical advise I just want to know what others would do.

  • Am I a horrible mom or doing the right thing?

    My son turns two in a month. He has the intelligence (I think) of a two year old but the body of a nine month old. He was born three months early and was also in my car when I got hit by a semi causing a brain bleed.

    He is now starting to throw temper tantrums (just like most two year olds try). He throws his self backwards and screams. More then once he has smacked his head into what ever is behind him. My almost three year old nephew does the same thing. When he is throwing a tamper I make sure he does not hurt himself but ignore him until he stops. I figure if I give in and give him what he wants he will continue to throw the tantrums.

    The problem is is that he is the size of a little baby. He still wears 6 - 9 months clothes. He can not walk or talk yet. He is only starting to crawl. Anyone looking at him thinks he is at least a year younger then what he is. They think I am being cruel by not picking up the screaming baby. I am told you can not spoil a child under the age of one but he is almost two. I know he gets frustrated because his body will not allow him to do what his body wants and he does not understand why he cannot be allowed to do somethings but if I spoil him now as he gets bigger it will only be worse.

    Please give me your opinion and maybe some advise.

    Thanks

  • Is this malpractice or just stupid?

    My 22 month old so has a feeding tube that was accidentally pulled out. I took him to the ER but by the time they got to him the hole had closed up enough that they could not put a new tube in. I was told that he would need to go to the OR. I was directed to the waiting room and told the procedure would only take about twenty minutes.

    I thought I would be taken to the recovery room as i have after any of his other surgeries (He was born three months early and has been in a car wreck when we were hit by a semi) but instead they brought him to me in the waiting room. When I asked why he did not go to recovery I was told he received no anesthesia so he could go right home.

    Two days later when I took him to his pediatrician I told he received no anesthesia she was outraged. She said that it was cruel to shove a scope down a baby's throat without anesthesia or at least without some sort of sedative (this is what I thought as well). In addition she said that it was dangerous because shoving a scope down a baby's throat that already has feeding aversions could and probably would cause the feeding problems to be worse.

    I would like some professional advise as well as anybody's opinions before I attempt to bring disciplinary actions against this doctor.

    I know I should ask a lawyer but I do not want to look stupid myself.

  • Not a question but a reply?

    I recieved a question from Adolpho via email but when I sent a reply it was returned unsendable. I hope he is able to get this.

    It concerns his child who has been recently put on a NG tube like my son's.

    I am sorry if I upset anyone by doing this but he seemed really concerned.

    Hello,

    I know right now it feels helpless but it will get better - both you and your baby. Everyone expects to give birth to the perfect baby and unfortunatly there are the ones that are not so perfect. Then as a parent you start asking yourself why me why my baby? It does not seem fair and you what it isn't. But all you can do is get your baby the best possible doctors and never give up.

    An NG tube or a G-tube I thought was really horrible but I have learned that it could be a lot worse. My Trystan goes to Riley children's Hospital. There are baby's there with cancer, some that are one vents for the rest of there lives, others who will never go home whose parents will have to bury them. All I have to do is pour formula down a tube. Although he is very delayed I know that he will eventually catch up. I have had to learn to except things for how they are and realize the good parts.

    Trystan is now 19 months old. He can make the worse day okay just by his grin. He has learned his first word (puppy) and has begun to crawl. Everyday there is something new to be excited about. I promise you that you will find it in you to get through the bad times.

    The only suggestion I would give you is if he needs the NG tube must longer talk to your Dr about a G-tube. As your baby gets bigger he will start pulling out tube and it is agonizing to have to keep shoving the tube up the little nose. The G-tube is so much easier to maintain and it only has to be replaced every three months.

    I will keep you in my thoughts. If you ever need someone to talk to please feel free to write.

  • Should I seek custody of my 13 year old son?

    Two years ago my son was a straight A student. This year he has flunked three of five classes, has gotten in trouble with the law, and when visiting me has been sullen and withdrawn.

    I have asked him if anything is wrong and he says no. I have spoken to his father and and all he says is that he has taken him to therapy and the therapists say there is nothing wrong. I gave up custody when Ben was two because I was not financially stable and lived in a hotel room. It is now 11 years later and I am remarried and living in a new home and have three other beautiful children. My ex has been a good father for many years but there is something going on and I can not get any answers. Should I get a lawyer and try to get custody...or do you think that taking him from his father could make things worse.

  • Why do I need two mothers?

    A question was asked a few days ago about the effects of adoption on mother and child and I answered it to the best of my ability.

    This was my answer:

    I am a 35 year old child of adoption.

    I have never been interested in finding my "real" parents. I was raised by two of the best parents of anyone I knew. They loved me unconditionally through good times and bad. I gave them reasons to not continue that love and they loved me anyway.

    I was chosen. How many children can say that. They are born to parents who may have chosen to give birth but they got the child that was given to them.

    My parents chose me. They could have picked any other little girl up for adoption and they chose me. I believe I have disappointed them at times but I have been told that even if they could have looked into the future and seen all the good and the bad they would have still chosen me.

    I have real parents i do not need biological ones.

    __________________________________________

    How did I get 10 thumbs down. I am so sorry that I had a good life while other adoptees did not. I don't understand should I feel bad about having that good life and reject the good and look for a mother I have never known.

    I am grateful to her for making the right choice and giving me up for adoption but I do not know what good would come out of finding her. I have a real mother. Why do I need two?
