Available treatment facilities for mental illness

MentalHealthFilter: To try and sum up a fairly long and complicated issue: My brother, 23, is diagnosed as bipolar. It's been an uphill battle ever since he was admitted to the psych hospital at 11/12 years old. Although his diagnosis and medications have switched many times, nothing seems to work. [more inside]

What can be sent as a present to an 8 years old kid recovering in a hospital from serious cardiac surgery?

This 8 years old kid came from Madrid, Spain to New York where he was treated for a serious cardiac problem at Mount Sinai. He had surgery and is recovering well. He will leave the ICU soon and a group of friends from Madrid wanted to send him some kind of present to cheer him up. I don't actually know the kid. But a friend of mine is part of said "group of friends" and they asked me to figure out what can be done. Hire a magician? send him a bunch of toys? books? a stripper? all of the above? I suppose the stripper would be a bad idea, what with blood pressure and all that. But I'm sure there are plenty of "special surprises" and original ideas for his age group and health condition. Oh, and he speaks both english and spanish, so language shouldn't be an issue.

A Real Pain In The Ass

Every once in a while I get a very sharp pain in my bum-hole that seems to be related to a:) Gas or b:) BM (Bowel Movemement). Once it was so bad I thought I was going to pass out from the pain... until the BM happened. The pain feels as if I would be clenching my bum-hole as tight as I could beyond normal pressure and is usually relieved after a BM. Sometimes this pain comes after sexual intercourse (NO, I am not sticking things up my bum-hole, not that there is a problem with that sort of thing) which leads me to believe it has something to do with the tightening of the sphincter muscle? I have heard that there are ways to relieve this pain in the ass, but how? Any relief tips or suggestions?

I am not a pretty man. Help me best use my 6 weeks off to improve my health & fitness.

With my holiday and time off from work this summer, I’d like to utilise this time to whip myself into a good health regime. I’m not looking for a crash diet, or to lose weight before a certain point in time, just a method to get myself disciplined. Exercise-wise, I’m looking to tone my chest and stomach (flabby & lumpy) and arms as well as strengthening my back. Quitting smoking isn’t a problem as my habit is primarily work-related.

Are my Nads working properly?

Ok, here's the situation. Ever since puberty, during sexual activity, I've only ever experienced pleasure from one testicle. I have both testicles, but only my left one seems to function. Whether it be stroking/rubbing during foreplay, or upon ejaculation, all the pleasure seems to emanate from leftie. [more inside]

bipolar ex

my ex gf who has bipolar recently packed up her things and left the state of Florida WITHOUT TELLING ME. She was apparently manic depressed etc and cut her hair. After two weeks I found out she eventually made it home with her parents. I supported emotionally and financially and boy was it crazy. And then my mom passed away and my ex wont even acknowledge the passing only to tell me that everything is my fault i ruined everything etc. She hates me for whatever reason and will not have contact. Are her actions ever forgivable if she ever calls me. Having no contact has been good because i need to figure out if i want to be a caretaker for the rest of my life....Any advice?

Need help in setting up a research project

I need your help. I'm a licensed acupuncturist and a herbalist. I have been involved in many out reach programs in the past. My goal was to reach out to as many immigrant groups with no to low health insurance coverage and educating them of available resources. The unique experience came working with the Korean community in New York City. This group tends to have such a high stomach cancer rate and about 70% of the patient population I came in contact with tested positive for H. pylori. The standard of treatment for H. pylori is course of antibiotic drugs. I don't know if you guys are aware but if you don't have health insurance to cover for these meds, it cost about $300 out of pocket expense. So, my thing is this - I wanted to set up a research program using simple herbs that are readily available and in low cost. I know nothing about setting up a research program. What do I need to do and who do I need to talk to? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi. I recently (about six months ago) switched health insurance providers.
