Why do so many suicides fail before the age of 25? Is it easier to die after 25 because the body starts slowing down? Why do so many attempted suicides fail? Is it because people are stupid and they dont know how to do it? Also
(seperate question) i have a big obsession with being famous and i will do almost anything to acquire it like pretend i was kidnapped and tell Nine news about it just so im talked about. WHy is it so bad to have that as a goal? to be famous just to be famous. I even wanted to date a guy just because he had a big status. he was a rugby player. Please dont tell me boring shit like see a psychologist. I already have mate. they tell me that i want approval but i want you to tell me why i really wanna be famous? I will do about anything to acquire it. except for killing someone. that goes a bit too far.
Literary research. Scenario: Husband and wife in terrible car crash. One goes on life support and is declared dead as soon as possible. Right now I’m working on 3 days. The other dies of traumatic aortic rupture, and I want her to die even sooner. I can’t find info I’m looking for on web. What I’m asking is assuming she receives great medical help, what would be the worst case scenario for her to die as soon as possible by ruptured aorta. Thank you in advance for your help. I’m sure this isn’t your favorite kind of client.
Hi. I went for a blood test and results came in, haven’t seen my primary care doc yet, but all seems ok except for my ANA result it came in at .27. Does that mean there is a problem? I am really worried about this. Your answer would be appreciated.

How effective is Tarceva for cancer? My doctor prescribed tarceva after a few months of 1st line chemo and second line chemo which now is no longer working. But says tarceva might not do much. Is that right?
Do I have a rash on my breast or are they glands of some kind? For a few months now, I’ve noticed this pink/red patch just outside of my areola. It doesn’t hurt or bother me in any way. I assumed it was glands. I added a photo of it to another doctor site just to see, and the dermatologist there seemed pretty confident that it was folliculitis and told me to get OTC cream or see my PCP for antibiotics. I’ve used the OTC stuff for 2 days now with no improvement.
Medications: Birth control
I’ve been experiencing a constant pain in/above my first set of top molars. Sometimes it seems to affect the lower set as well.
I initially assumed it was a dental problem but I’ve been to two dentists and they both say everything looks fine and that there’s nothing they can do for “phantom pain”. They suggested a possible sinus issues to I went to a otolaryngologist and he did a scan which showed my maxillary sinuses are clear (and that was the end of it). The pain is constant (at the very least I can feel it) and has been going on for years. It seems to be worse after drinking the night before but alcohol and painkillers don’t stop it, they just make it more tolerable. It’s hard to describe or explain the exact origin of the pain; it stings when I speak and seems to shift when I turn my head. It’s driving me crazy and I don’t know where to go.
Hi, I have had redness on the my right side of face. It started around the temple maybe 7-8 years ago and has slowly spread. Trying to figure out if it’s seborrheic dermatitis. It’s not flaky, itchy, burning. No symptoms at all really, just redness. Will include pic. Thanks

I’ve been dealing with issues in my left foot for the past 3 weeks, with varying symptoms. When I wake up I usually feel a stabbing pain between the ball and arch of my foot when pressure is applied (probably 4/10 on the pain scale, but enough to my my mind subconsciously try to limp). The pain will often disappear if I am seated for 20 minutes or so, and come back after walking for a similar amount of time. Also, when I wear shoes the pain often subsides and I feel a very uncomfortable feeling on the top of my foot similar to the feeling of swelling… without any noticeable swelling, which feels as though it builds up in pressure if I don’t relieve it through stretching the top of my foot. This bothers me significantly since my job requires me to be on my feet, walking briskly, for 9+ hours a day… so I either limp rapidly or try my best to ignore it and stretch it when possible.
There are periods of time where the issues disappear for unknown reasons while walking. Taking my shoes/ socks off and sitting also alleviates the issue fairly rapidly till I have to walk for more than 15-20 minutes. This has made it very difficult to see the doctor, since my foot usually feels better by the time I actually get to see someone… which I have wasted money on 9+ doctors visits with no results
I would go more into the history of my issue, but the word limit is restricting… so I will try to go into it briefly.
I had a hairline fracture, about 6 weeks into the healing process I had to walk about 3-4 miles a day for college. This caused a swollen foot each day which I relieved by elevating it for a couple of hours. After the semester ended my foot would swell up every time I woke up/ walked on it for 15+ minutes, similar to now. After 2.5 years of seeing doctors the problem magically disappeared, with no diagnosis/ blood clots/ fractures found in my 9 doctor visits.
After working 3 years the issue reappeared to what it is now.

I am a white 52 yo heterosexual male. Sunday evening (4 nights ago), I was heavily intoxicated and for whatever reason i decided to try and stick a relatively thick dildo in my backside. There was a condom on it and some lube was used. After persistently trying I only achieved getting about 1/2 the head in until I realized it just wasn’t happening. Monday when I got up I was sore. Remembering what I did, I figured that was normal. By late that night and Tuesday morning I had developed pain and a hard swelling under the skin directly behind the anus. Over the last couple days much to my dismay instead of the swelling going down, it has continued to get worse, also increasing the discomfort. it is very uncomfortable to sit and nearly impossible to work or do much of anything and its been 4 days now. There is no bleeding and using the toilet hasn’t been a problem, so I’m assuming no damage to the anus itself. I have been hoping the swelling came from the blunt trauma of trying to put a big peg in a small hole so to say, possibly traumatizing the external sphincter, and will correct itself. I really don’t want to go to the hospital if I don’t have too, totally embarrassing and also no insurance. I really need to know if my swelling is normal under these circumstances and how long it may take to correct itself, or if It sounds like I have a more serious problem that definitely needs attention. Just to restate, the swelling is directly behind the anus under the skin and about an inch wide and a couple inches long extending up the butt crack, and the swelling has continued to grow for 4 days now. Thank You in advance for any insight anyone can give me.
My daughter belongs to a local health club. In lieu of her monthly fees, she takes home all of the dirty towels and washes them in our home washing machine. My fear is that any bacteria or anything else that my family could catch from these towels is in our home washing machine.
Is this safe for my family?
Hello, my husband is 52 years old. He has been taking amitriptyline 10 mg a day for approx 24 years, approx 3 years ago they increased his dosage to 30 mg a day. (He takes it for migraines). His personality has changed drastically, he has a lack of emotions, wanting to be alone, has recently decided to walk out of our 28 year marriage because he wants to be alone. These are things that are also out of his normal character. I am wondering if amitriptyline could possibly change his behaviour like this making him have next to no emotions, he seems like he just has no desire for anything which is not like him at all. We have always been a happy loving couple up until 3 years ago when he started becoming distant and wanting to be alone. Says he isn’t happy about anything in his life, his job or anything else. Could this be related to the medication? And if so if he went off the medication would we see a change in his personality and within how long. Thanks!
Medications: Amitriptyline (30 mg) husband
