Its come to my attention that some people on the forum have some deep-seated emotional, spiritual or mental problems. The purpose of this thread is let them talk about them and for others to offer advice.

Plea to mods: This isn't somethign I wanted to set up so people can be flamed about their problems, so I would greatly appreciate it if any errant flames or piss-taking were deleted from here ASAP.

Ground rules: Don't make up problems. Be constructive in your advice for peeps seeking it.



Okay, shoot.
Pecnut
OK, I've got a cold and I can't stop sneezing and I feel absolutely crap. What can I do about it?
Baldman_Sonetti
Lol it wasn't just about that.

Hmmm Pecnut...I find cod-liver oil helps.

<<< Advice king.
Toge
This topic might turn into arguing.
Baldman_Sonetti
It shouldn't, if people can act like grown-ups and respect that other people have problems.

ok... my problem is: My dad was recently diagnosed with some rare cancer (can't pronounce the name) and he could take medicine so that he could live up to 10 years, but that medicine is $20,000 a year. And we can't afford that. So my dad will have to go without the medicine. They said that without the medicine, he will only live 2 years or so. I've had so much to think about lately becaue a month or two ago, he had a triple bypass open heart surgey, because he almost died from a heart attack. With all this shit going on, I don't really know what to think. I'm really worried for him, and during school, thats all I really think about. If my dad passed away, that would seriously ruin my life. I don't know what to do or what to think.

Cant you borrow some money i.e. remortaging the house, or is that not possible at the current time?
Baldman_Sonetti
Does his work not offer him a health insurance plan? Say what you want, but this is whats wrong with the American health care system, you can only live if you can afford it.

Have you looked into getting treatment in another country?
Rank Outsider
As far as i know $20,000 is within the health insurance limit.
DavidOrtiz34
well, we have great insurance, and they pay for all of his medicine for his heart condition right now. But the thing is, the insurance is stupid and they won't cover new medicines, like this one. We can't remortgage anything, we are renting an apartment. He is going to go to clinical trials in Boston, MA and possibly darthmoth, VT, But idk what the hell that means.

I dont know if this really helps or not but i watched something on tv where a guy wrote a book about how the US doesnt let the cures for some diseases be let out in public. Cancer, Arthritis, Aids, Herpes.. All of it has a cure u only have to take the medicine once. The US doesnt allow it to be on the market because it would make drug companies go out of business and ruin the economy. I dont remember what the book is called but ive seen the advertisement a lot on comedy central between 6-7 in the morning.

ok, if this is true, then how would my dad even get this medicine? If he got ahold of it, then everyone in the world with cancer would be wanting to get it. The odds of this even existing are like, .0000000001%

I have a mental problem, thats why I am on medication smile.gif

Rank Outsider
Cant you borrow money from relatives or get a job that would help contribute towards the cost. These pharmaceutical companies actually have payment plans for most expensive drugs,you don't have to pay all at once as long as you have the ability to pay for it in the future. Its similar to a loan where you prove you have a job that can pay the debt in a certain period of time.

Thats not an uncommon problem then, hopefully it should pass soon.

Are you under any stress at the moment, that can make people a bit more irritable than normal. You should see if it passes or if theres some anger managemnet techniques you can use, getting doped up by a doctor can sometimes make things much worse.

The auther of the book gave out info about the cure for cancer. He said it was just a bunch of herbs from Africa. The dude was sued by the FCC for giving out this information. Wonder why? Ask yourself this question, if they did find a cure for cancer, if it was just a vaccine that cost $100 to produce, and you would only need to take it once, do you really think the US wants to lose millions of dollars from that? Nobody would need to go in for surgery month after month, they wouldent have to pay thousands of dollars worth of medical bills. The country would lose so much money.

Its like the thing with cigarettes, cigarettes would be banned right now if it wasent so important to the economy. But i guess the people that die from cigarettes each day are worth the money made to keep the country running rolleyes.gif

I got a problem...

Ok today at school my friend was fucking around and I tried to pull him out of it because he'd probably get expelled because he's done this quite alot of times.

Ok the threw a chair through a window and vandalized the class,I was there with him...

Now we are friends and I was wondering if I should dogg him in or just tell the teachers who are interogating me who did it.

I feel a bit guilty, but I'll live with it I guess but I got second thoughts.
Baldman_Sonetti
If the teachers can't prove that you were in the room, keep shtum. That way you don't incriminate your friend or yourself. But if they know for a fact that you were both in the room, but don't know which one of you it was, ask yourself if you want to be blamed for something you didn't do.

For the record, your friend sounds like a muppet.

First of all, don't let anyone interrogate you!
It would help to know why he may be acting like this. Is he doing drugs? Is he having panic attacks>? Does he get depression? Etc.

Sometimes a rough life can also spark violence. He could have some kind of hatred towards someone or a group of people that he's taking out on others. Are you of religion? Give more information about both of you. Because if you want to help him, it depends on both of you.
Rank Outsider
You shouldn't tell them anything.

If you wanted to then you should have done it at the start, now its too late so you'll still get in trouble because they'll say you lied before. A similar thing happened to me when one of my friends stole potassium from a science class, several of us got into trouble because we didn't tell anybody about it.

In mid-July, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. That means from now, I shall have to unwillingly inject myself with Novamix30 (Insulin) twice a day. The problem I have is explaining it to others. Yeah, it may sound easy, but it ain't. Try telling other people that you have to inject yourself daily. You sound like a junkie.

Two questions:

1.) How do I go about it?

2.) Is there anything else I can do besides insulin?
Baldman_Sonetti
1. Just explain that it's diabetes. It's not uncommon, and your friends should understand.

2. I don't think so, insulin is the hormone needed by the body for something, and when you have diabetes, your body stops producing it. I think eating sugar helps, but I think you can only have so much. I don't know, sorry mate.

I got a problem. My sleeping patterns all screwed up, and I'm not tired when I go to bed. I found myself up until daylight a couple of times.

I have the same problem. I have visions of murder, I get urges to go on killing sprees, I walk around with large knives. I feel so much anger, yet don't know the source. Is that anything like what you feel? And tons of people do the controller thing.

Well a teacher gave him after school detention, he was at detention his girl friend thought he was fucking around with someone else....guess what she dumped him.

So a chair through the window was the revenge.

Well anyways I've decided the both of us get the blame but it's not until Monday untill the teachers ask me what I'll say.

Why do you have to say anything, if you haven't realised yet the teachers are bluffing. If they had any real proof or knew for sure then they wouldn't need your confession, they would have begun the main punishment already.

Well dont worry about the virginity issue as its not as much of a deal as people make it out to be. Now being 40 and not having a job is quite an issue though. Have you considered going to a job service of some sort because they can probably help you out or is there a Salvation Army you can go to ring bell for that pays money? Once you get a job you'll be able to save up enough money to get an apartment at the very least. Good luck man wink.gif.
