My ADHD is a constant problem in my life, and I expect that will continue, but I've heard that there is software that can improve working memory and that, in turn, can improve ADHD over a course of five or six weeks. I'd like to try this! Do you have any recommendations for software?
I will try to keep this short. I have had lifelong OCD/Anxiety/Depression. I tried meds in the past. I have been in therapy for a decade. I’ve done it all, including ketamine infusions. Docs want me to try meds again. Info inside [more inside]
Sometimes when I'm getting sick, one of the first symptoms to manifest is perceiving recurring patterns of weird shapes in motion. Help me understand what's going on. [more inside]
Mr. Circle and I are thinking of hiring a doula for our baby's birth in June, but we are on the fence. Please share your experience, either as parents who hired one, professionals who've worked with one, or if you ARE one... we'd love some perspectives. [more inside]
Rather, how do I work them? Can someone give me instructions in how to pull tp off the commercial dispenser when the first roll is used up and the second roll drops down? [more inside]
I've been experiencing bladder pain for a couple of days. Never had a UTI or kidney stone before so I don't know if the pain is consistent with either of those things or something else (digestive/reproductive?). I'd be interested in hearing from people who've experienced this kind of pain before, and what the cause turned out to be. [more inside]
Bare minimum weight-loss related chat please. I expect some, but that's not the reason why I exercise. I tend to prefer longer routines to High-Intensity stuff, and the less equipment the better. Thanks.
You'll know from my question history that my life is pretty much defined by disorder. Long-standing cerebral palsy, depression and anxiety diagnoses, depressed parents, a messy house and no job, as of yet are just some examples of things that need changing. I have no energy to change much of this, and can feel my health deteriorating. I rely on way too many medications and caffeine to function. I almost never walk anymore. I need to lose about 100 lbs, but as someone in a wheelchair whose parents are not supportive, is WLS the right way to go? WOT and snowflakes inside, sorry. [more inside]
In looking at the 2017 annual stats from the Labor dept for medical care CPI, I noticed something rather odd. Unlike every other region in the US, and unlike the total overall CPI trend for the region itself, the medical care CPI for PA / NJ / DE / MD was almost flat in 2017 - 0.4%. This is a strange outlier. [more inside]
I'm looking for recommendations about specific models / brands, but also types that work well (e.g. ceramic blades?) I can't seem to find trimmers specifically for pubic hair (for a woman, if it matters). I don't know if I can use head-hair clippers or a beard trimmer. (I don't want to shave using a razor, as this makes me itchy. I want to trim, but the closer the trim the better.) [more inside]
My retainers are falling apart, and I need to get new ones. It's been stressfully opaque to try to figure out where to go, though, since pricing seems to vary by clinic. Looking for data points from any SF Mefites: what clinic did you use, and how much was it? I'm looking to get top and bottom Hawley retainers.
I have moderate hearing loss in my right ear, mostly high frequency. This was discovered when I was a little kid, and I'm 47 now. It has gotten worse over the years and has made social and professional situations difficult. I am currently trying a set of Otofonix amplifiers, both ears and want opinions on these vs. "real" hearing aids. More details inside. [more inside]
I almost never drink water because: (i) I am not thirsty very much; and (ii) I don't really like drinking plain old water. Is this bad? [more inside]
I would really like to start hiking/running, but I live in a mostly hilly area and have had an achy Achilles’ tendon for the past two years. Looking for protection, better habits, tips, etc. [more inside]
I'm having this sensation of vibration coming from the center of my torso which is mild and ignorable at first but then gets stronger over a while until it manifests in things like hand tremors so strong I can't write or type or eat, or also my legs nearly giving way under me when I try to walk. As the trembling gets stronger, a sort of mental fog takes over me making it hard to function. Then over time it fades out until it is just a slight internal tremor or is actually gone for a while.

Asking for a loved one with a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. [more inside]
How do you stay hydrated? [more inside]
Every morning I wake up with my hands clenched into fists, which results in tired and sore hands. How can I train myself to stop doing that? [more inside]
I feel wound-up physically and I would like to do something invigorating and physically demanding like have a fight, go cross-country skiing or run for miles. However I'm poor, unfit and have a bit of a delicate back so those things are currently out of the question. [more inside]
