You need to first rid your self of the guilt you are feeling after masturbating. There is nothing morally wrong in what you are doing.

How can I overcome stress and strain after completion of my examination and at the time of releasing results.
It is a natural phenomena to experience results anxiety. First it is important to identify the real reason of stress. The real reason often is different. Second you need to think rationally about its validity. Remember emotions are always valid but reasons are not. Keeping your self busy will be helpful in freeing your self from the nagging unwanted thought. As the saying goes" keeping busy got me better" keep a second line of action ready towards your career plan. A healthy schedule that includes exercise wld be helpful.

Cbd oil for epilepsy


Cannabis indica and cannabis sativa have been used therapeutically for thousands of years, including for the treatment of epilepsy. Today, cannabis is viewed as a controversial medical subject - thanks in large part to prohibition and decades of misinformation - but prior to 1937's 'marihuana tax act' cannabis was accepted by doctors and patients as a true medicine, and considered one of the safest and most effective forms of seizure control medication.

A controversial film about the discredited link between autism and vaccinations has been pulled from Robert De Niro’s Tribeca film festival, after the actor consulted “the scientific community” and found “concerns with certain things in this film”.


Robert De Niro steps into autism vaccination row by screening film

The father of an autistic child and co-founder of the festival, De Niro at first defended the decision to premiere Vaxxed: from Cover-Up to Catastrophe, despite outcry from doctors and researchers.

Repeated studies involving more than a million children have found there is no evidence to link childhood vaccines to autism. But a small movement of activists persists in the belief that vaccinations might somehow harm children.

Nexito (5 mg) is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris). Nexito (5 mg) affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression or anxiety. Nexito (5 mg) is used to treat anxiety in adults. Since you have reduced the dosage to half depression and anxiety symptoms are resurfacing. Psychiatric medication must be backed by psychotherapy, any change in the dosage should be with the consent of your doctor only.

There are many possibilities to this, it is not necessary that there cannot be possibilities of lesions or other abnormalities even if the mri is clear. At the onset it appears to be that you are extremely stressed and are undergoing a anxiety disorder. Yet you also need to rule out seizure disorders since drowsiness accompanied with headache is present.

poor academic performance and Learning disability an eye opener
How often have you reprimanded your child. Write neatly! stop being so careless. Why are you so distracted. You cant remember any thing. You are hopeless at studies. And so on and so forth. Your child could be having a learning disability and you haven't even noticed it. And your young child is emotionally scarred, has lost his/her self confidence and gone into a downward spiral both academically and psychologically.

Today ld is prevalent among 12% of school going children and is often left unnoticed. If identified at an early stage it can be remidiated (if not cured).

Unidentified ld can leave a child emotionally scared and academically backward.
