I take Enbrel for Psoriatic Arthritis and I want to get pregnant. Doctors have different responses about whether I will have to stop taking it in preparation for and during pregnancy or not. Enbrel is a category B drug. Do I have to suffer joint pain and horrible skin for 9+ months?

Rather than go into the American Dream or the New American Dream, I would like to find out about the real or philosophical "...Dream" of other countries, like what is the New Dutch Dream and the Chinese Dream? Note: don't tell me about sagas! dreams only, please.

I can't stand my doctor, and I don't think she likes me much, either. I need a prescription, though. How can I hint at her to refer me elsewhere? GPs are in short supply here.

I've spent the last fifteen years suffering from bipolar disorder (bipolar II with the emphasis on depression) and a sleep disorder. Four months ago I switched to a medication that turns out to be perfect for me. I feel normal. Assuming this continues, my mood disorder is essentially cured. Fifteen years of mental illness have really screwed up my life. How do I get it back?
