Alcoholism

Wife of an Alcoholic in Need of Advice

Firstly for all of suffering out there you are not alone. Treating any addiction is complicated. Firstly-generally yes -the individual needs to acknowledge that their alcohol use is affecting their life in a negative way. Secondly they need to be willing to commit as recovery process is long. To actually detox from alcohol is about two weeks-but what happens after ? In my experience people after detox have every intention of remaining sober for the most part- but have gone home and returned to work/home/routines /relationships and for many of these people their alcohol use had become an important part of this. Plus temptation is all around. Therefore a good treatment facility will always recommend long rehabilitation. Whether an an inpatient or as a day rehab and depending on the case itself, the use of counselling, medication such as Campril and above all will work with the person to address the underlying issues. My advice being someone working in this field is to not only contact Alcoholics Anonymous, but to contact detox facilities that incorporate rehabilitation on completion of detox or maybe even offer an outpatient program. Gather all the information and when you talk about treatment you will be armed with the information you need and can be guided by professionals about the particular program/ detox that your loved one needs. I I hope that this has helped.  (May 9, 2013 | post #439)

Health

What does a low blood platelet count mean?

Always with any blood result that is concerning to you if your regular dr is not providing you with the information that you need, either go and get a second opinion and /or ask for a referral to a specialist. Self diagnosing or self treating from information on the Internet can be very dangerous. Remember people can die from misusing over the counter (stuff that you get from the chemist without a prescription ) medications too. I wish you all good health and safe treatment.  (May 9, 2013 | post #824)

Heavy-Metal

Song lyrics

I will start- "I sure could use a vacation from this bullshit, three ring, circus sideshow" Tool. I find this reflective of the frustration I experience when confronted with ignorance and when I witness the worst of human nature daily. The fake celebrities, the gossiping, the stupidity that is revered by the general population. Anyone else ?  (May 9, 2013 | post #2)
