In December 2010 I resigned from my job. My house was in foreclosure and in June I was admitted to a mental health facility. I went back to work in July, found out I was pregnant in August, found out my dad had stage 4 brain cancer in September, and I lost the baby at 20 weeks in November. I was supposed to go back to work December 1 but had a breakdown in the shower and I just couldn't go back.
I haven't worked since. I started looking earlier in the year but ended up back in the mental health facility in April (this time for a week). Kaiser gave me a "working" diagnosis of rapid-cycling bipolar 2 with borderline personality disorder.
I now have no insurance, I'm looking at being evicted from my rented house, and I can't find a job. I can't go back to the hospital because I can't pay for it and if I don't find a job I'm going to be homeless. Does anyone know if my mental condition would qualify me for disability in CA?4 AnswersPeople with Disabilities9 years ago
My daughter has been potty trained for about 6 months and she started having accidents at school and home - sometimes 3 per day. She doesn't complain of pain while urinating, the urine looks clear (nothing floating in it - sorry), and she hasn't run a fever or anything.
I noticed this weekend that she would grab herself and then continue about her business. Everytime I saw it I had her try to "go" and she always did. Yesterday I must have missed that sign because she had 3 accidents in about 3 hours.
Do you think this is a urinary tract infection or just a 3-year old being too busy checking out life that she's not taking a "break from the action" to pee? Or could it be something more horrible...

I had a miscarriage at 20 weeks and had surgery to remove the baby. The surgery was on 11/4 and I bled for a couple weeks. It's now 12/17 and I still haven't had a period. Is this normal? I'm going to call the doctor when the office is open but hope I can get some info before that.

I have a 1 in 3 chance of having a Downs Syndrome baby. I'm having an amnio next Tuesday. But for those of you moms that have had a "Downs Pregnancy" did you "know" before you "knew"? Was the pregnancy different than other pregnancies you had? I'm freaking out so any info is good info. Thanks.3 AnswersPregnancy1 decade ago
I am 42. I had the 1st trimester blood test and U/S and the 2nd trimester blood test and am scheduled for the U/S next week. My tests came back with a 1 in 3 chance for Downs Syndrome. Anyone out there had this bleak outlook and have a healthy baby?6 AnswersPregnancy1 decade ago
Just had my 1st trimester u/s yesterday (13 wks today) and was told I have marginal placenta previa. The tech said they will monitor it. Does it move? What's your experience? 4th pregnancy and this has never happened before! So much for the same old, same old.3 AnswersPregnancy1 decade ago
I recently started taking Zoloft for severe anxiety and depression. I was on 50mg Zoloft and .25mg of Xanax as needed. I just found out I'm pregnant and the doctor has advised that I go off all my meds. Anyone else out there suffering? Did you switch to something else? Is there a "safe" anti-depressant like Zoloft that I can take?4 AnswersPregnancy1 decade ago
I'm 6 weeks pregnant with my 4th child and am blown away by how bad the morning sickness (apparently my body thinks ALL DAY is morning)! I haven't thrown up (yet) but I'm really tired of bowing to the porcelain goddess! I'm losing weight too! How do you combat your "morning sickness"?14 AnswersPregnancy1 decade ago
I'm 42. I have a 15 yr old, 13 yr old, and 2 1/2 yr old. My little one was compliments of Clomid. I just found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant!! We weren't trying but weren't protecting against it but it's been 2 1/2 years with not even a scare. And I was told I was not ovulating regularly now so we weren't really concerned. Obviously I know I'm a high risk, just wondering someone else out there can relate. We're in shock, we're thrilled, but OMG! I'm pregnant!4 AnswersPregnancy1 decade ago
From reading on the internet I'm pretty sure I've got a sinus infection (or they're atleast very mad at me). What's the best over the counter sinus medicine that will help with the stuffed up nose, green mucus, and the pain in my cheekbones and upper teeth? What's worked for you?
Thanks. I'm miserable.1 AnswerRespiratory Diseases1 decade ago
I got a cold-sore on the rightside of my lip on Sunday. Yesterday the right side of my nose and right cheekbone started to itch and tingle and it still is continuing. My eye feels weird too. I'm starting to get a headache too...like a migraine's aura. I did have chickenpox when I was a small child so I know it's possible. Do you think the cold sore started it? They are both herpes virus'. Does this sound like shingles to you? Should I call the doc or am I overreacting?1 AnswerInfectious Diseases1 decade ago
My daughter is almost 21 months old. She's always been a good go-to-sleeper (and count myself blessed). In the last few weeks its gotten more and more difficult to get her to take a nap (school is having trouble) and to get her to go down at night. She screamed the other night for an hour (I didn't leave her alone that whole time but I do believe in the cry it out method). Last night I ended up holding her until she fell asleep in my arms (and I feel asleep TOO!). She can get 1 leg and a foot over the crib railing (and for now gets stuck) so I'm afraid she's going to fall out of her crib but don't want to give her free rein of her room - she is NOT READY for that. Any moms have some advice for me. I'm exhausted.2 AnswersToddler & Preschooler1 decade ago
So I finally got 3 months behind on my mortgage and got "the letter". Yup...I'm in foreclosure. I really thought I'd be able to catch up but...that's how it goes. I do want to keep my house but now that I'm in foreclosure is there any way to do it? From what I understand President Obama's "help" only helps those that are not behind on their mortgage. How does that help someone who lost their job (bankruptcy after 50 years) in 2006 before the big financial fall out and was unemployed for 1 1/2 years because there were no jobs? I was at the beginning of the end of the country's financial healthiness when there was no help, no extended benefits, no bank "working with you". Help...anyone?2 AnswersRenting & Real Estate1 decade ago
