    Am an a young adult(20 years old) Aspergers Syndrome & recently I've been doing alot of development personal development. I've come to know Jesus as my lord & savior. He's help me alot with my anxiety from being autistic, helping me to solve many demons in my head. But I've also realized alot of my anxiety comes from my brain. I've been praying to God about it & I'm thinking of trying to get prescribed some medicine to help deal with it. I'm still in prayer about it. If I do try to get myself prescribed something, I want it too be non-amphetamine cause I'm not taking Adderal no matter what. 1. Cause I was forced to take it in school coming up, 2. Even though many people say Adderal & Meth ain't related, I know for a fact they are as I've seen meth heads take Adderal in meths place when they don't have access to meth cause it gives them similar effects. My family has a history of drug abuse including meth so I wanna avoid amphetamine based medicine. What are some common medications I could get proscribed too that would help me with my basic anxiety? That also wouldn't turn me into a zombie? Any advice would be helpful!!! *If it also helps I'm on SSI so I get governmental health insurance, though I can't remember the name of my provider at the moment, I'll update when I find it out*

  • Will impetigo go away by itself/are there drugstore medications I can get for it?

    Best answer: Try calling the health department. A lot of times they have clinics that will see you for only $5. Also, I successfully treated impetigo with antibacterial soap- washing at least 2 x a day, and then putting on triple antibiotic ointment. You'll have to watch it closely though, as it can spread like wild fire in... show more
    Best answer: Try calling the health department. A lot of times they have clinics that will see you for only $5. Also, I successfully treated impetigo with antibacterial soap- washing at least 2 x a day, and then putting on triple antibiotic ointment. You'll have to watch it closely though, as it can spread like wild fire in a short amount of time. If you possibly can, go to the health department, or call around and ask if there are any free health clinics in your area. Also, eat fairly healthy, drink plenty of water, and get enough rest. Treating your body right will help it deal with whatever comes your way, and will help build your immune system.

  • How do I force myself to enjoy exercising?

    I hate running so much but I really wish I could enjoy it and be good at it. Any advice? If you exercise a lot and are a proud believer that it's stress-relieving and you feel good afterwards, can you give me any tips on how to enjoy it more? I dread working out.

My thing is I don’t make myself throw up,I don’t constantly exercise, I’m not on any diet or taking any diet pills.But I am terrified of gaining weight, if I notice I’m gaining weight I’ll just eat super small portions or nothing at all until I drop the weight. Another thing is I truly don’t believe in eating 3 meals a day to me I feel like that’s too much food. I’ll eat one real meal and then just have snacks or I’ll just eat snacks all day and not a real meal. Do I think I’m fat? No but do I have days where I think I have gut on me and that will cause me not to eat so I’ll have a flat stomach. I’m not sure if I have an eating disorder because I’m not anorexia or bulimic, it’s just something I want to understand because I’m not sure if I would “qualify” please don’t be rude it’s just something I want to know.

    I suffered from depression since I was a teen. I’ve tried exercise and anti depressants but they haven’t worked for me. I’ve come off anti depressants and gone for some CBT which has been very beneficial. Anyway, I’ve started meditating. First thing in the morning 20 minutes. Last thing at night 20 minutes. I cannot believe the change in my brain. I wake up more optimistic, my stress and anger has subsided. I don’t snap or get irritable like before and I’m looking to making positive changes in my life. I want to spread awareness to others who suffer from depression that this has worked for me. Has this really naturally cured my depression? Will the novelty wear off after a while like with anti depressants? Anyone have experiences they’d like to share. Many thanks.

    Every day when i go to school i panic on the bus, panic before class and when i try to do homework. It s only been a month since school started and I ve already cried in almost every class over silly things. It s really embarrassing and I m always scared at school because of it. I also get too scared to go to the wellbeing office because it s always the same people there and it makes me worried that I don t belong there and only people with real issues should go. My mum thinks I m just trying to get out of school if i mention it and usually tells me that because I m a teenager and I m supposed to feel like crap all the time.
