Dec 17th 2012 11:13AM Because it's the scariest. I fear however, this is the reason why so many people are going nuts. They figure if the world is ending anyway, it might as well be on their terms. It makes me want to hide until the weekend. Actually, I have to work the weekend, so I'll hide until Monday. lol
Jun 17th 2009 12:13AM We've had great results with coffee (NO sugar, but a sugar substitute is ok). Caffeine is a stimulant, like many of the ADHD drugs, and will work the same as the medication. Children often respond to medication differently than adults. Usually the effects are opposite. Do know, also, that kids are taken off of the drugs when they reach adulthood because it doesn't work the same anymore. Sadly, a lot of them end up turning to other drugs,( coke and meth for example). and really become addicted. (My mother is a drug/ alcohol detox nurse and sees it often.) Other sugar free beverages with caffeine work well, too.
Just don't give a child a super strong cup of coffee, like Starbucks, or Dunkin' Donuts. And DO NOT give a child any energy drink, like Red Bull. A 1/2 cup of coffee in the a.m. before school, maybe he or she could bring 1/2 cup in a thermos to school. When he gets home, 1/4 - 1/2 cup, and homework is much easier. The trick is to not over do it.
Feb 11th 2009 7:00PM I have a son with high functioning autism.(Aspergers) He had symptoms present long before he had his MMR vaccine. One thing I've never heard anybody bring up is that fact that vitamins were added to food to enrich them about the time we started giving vaccines regularly. I know vitamins are supposed to be good for you, but there really hasn't been as much research as there should be. We know that iron in high levels can be toxic. I wonder if other vitamins and minerals could have the same effect, especially in prenatal vitamins, which contain higher doses of vitamins. Maybe in utero, when the fetus is forming, certain vitamins can stimulate parts of the brain and nervous system too much, (or too little) causing unintended effects, such as autism and related disorders. I really would like to see doctors and scientists look down this avenue. We can't keep dancing around the vaccine issue, without looking at other things. Another thought, too: My son, while he has many social issues, is an extremely smart boy. I wonder if these kids aren't supposed to be like this. Einstein had Aspergers, supposedly Marie Curie did, too. Bill Gates definitely has characteristics of it as well. I feel that if these people had social skills and people skills, then they may not have been able to accomplish all that they did. They probably would've been out partying instead of concentrating ( obsessively) on the task at hand. I really believe that people like this are going to be the ones to save the world.
Feb 3rd 2009 1:06PM No matter how much money she makes off of deals, her children will never have what they need the most: Her undivided attention. The poor kids will probably have to take a ticket, like at the deli counter, just to get some one on one time with Mom. The most loving, selfless thing she could do for all of her children, would be to give the babies up for adoption.
Sep 17th 2008 10:03AM I wonder if Palin will change McCains' diapers along with her babys' diapers?
Sep 11th 2008 8:26PM coffee is GREAT for kids with hyperactivity. I give my son 1/2 cup in the a.m before school, I send him to school with an 8oz thermos, and if he needs it another 1/2cup in the afternoon. NO SUGAR, just splenda or another sweetener. Sugar will make hyperactivity worse. Caffeine is a stimulant, just like Ritalin and other ADHD drugs. It's just a whole lot safer. It's amazing, too, how fast coffee works. Results are pretty much immediate.

Sep 4th 2008 12:00PM Hi Brenda. My brother in law suffers from psoriasis on his skin and in his joints. He has it severely. He has to go once a month to have a drug called Remicade. It is and IV drug that is actually is for cancer, but they've discovered that it works for autoimmune diseases as well. When he first started it, he was sick as a dog from the drug itself, but after a few treatments,the side effects have pretty much disappeared. The
psoriasis seems to be completely gone, but he still has to go for Remicade once a month. It is very expensive, though,so check with your insurance provider first. It is a last resort when all else fails.
Aug 29th 2008 12:49AM A few weeks ago, there was an article on AOL about a woman being harassed by a flight attendant for breastfeeding her infant on a plane. It's OK to watch porn on a plane, but not breastfeed your child?
May 15th 2008 11:59AM I wonder what pedophiles would think of this line of clothing?
