    The article below is full of great ideas on how to find a good new doctor…please add your own experiences, tips and suggestions

    Great article that talks about the importance of good bedside manner, doctors that listen, checking your insurance at the start of your search, asking good questions and do your homework of course! It has lots of good ideas especially at the end under “Finding a good fit”…like…

    “…During that first visit, think about how the doctor and office staff make you feel, HHS advises. If the doctor doesn’t make you feel comfortable, show respect for what you have to say, know your medical history, and spend enough time with you, then they might not be the one for you.”

    I need help.

    Hello, everyone. I hope you all are doing good.
    This is a long post but please read it if you can.
    I've been inactive here for more than a year now. Due to my mental illness, I was not able to keep up with things. Personally, and Socially. I need some advice and if anyone could help, that woul be great.
    I have completed my graduation and I'm about to complete B.Ed (Bachelor of Education), this is a degree that you need to have in order to go into the academic field. I want to become a professor. On fourth of July I'll complete my B.Ed and then I'll be eligible to teach in school upto class 8th as I have done only undergraduation and not postgraduation. After completing undergraduation and B.Ed, one is eligible to teach in schools upto class 8th in India, and if you have completed your postgraduation, then you're eligible to teach upto class 12th.
    But the thing is I want to be a college teacher (a professor) and for that I have to do M.A. (postgraduation) and then clear NET (National Eligibility Test) and after that I'll be eligible to teach in colleges. But I have to give an entrance exam to study M.A. and I was not able to prepare for it at all due to my increasing mental health issues. And now I've my entrance exam some time in August, most probably. And I can't prepare all of it in such a short duration of time. If I'm not able to clear the entrance exam this time, I want to take a drop year and study for the entrance and then give it again. But my parents are not supporting this decision. They are saying that if I clear my entrance exam this time, then I can study from Delhi. Otherwise, I can study from Raipur, Chhattisgarh. I've done my undergraduation from University of Delhi, and now I want to do my postgraduation from JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University). Both these universities are the top most universities of India and after having the experience of University of Delhi, I want to get an experience of JNU. I've set my level according to that. And studying from Raipur, Chhattisgarh (where I live currently) is not appealing to me at all. The level of education over here is not as good as Delhi not is the environment.
    But my parents want me to get a job as well and their suggestion is that I apply for a job at a school and then do my M.A. simultaneously. But I don't want this. I want to do my M.A. properly, clear NET and then become a professor. My school teachers are also suggesting me to apply for a job at a school.
    All this is very confusing. My aim was fixed but due to all this I'm having multiple doubts. This is increasing my mental health issues a lot. I have depression and anxiety disorder and my self-esteem is becoming low day by day. It's getting worse with time and with so much pressure and confusion. If anyone of you can suggest as to what I should do, then please suggest, it would be of great help.
    Please tell me from the options below:
    1.) I should take a drop year if I don't clear my entrance exam this time. And then give it again next year. (The entrance exam is for University of Delhi and JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University)
    2.) I should apply for a job at a school and then do my M.A. from Raipur, Chhattisgarh.
    3.) I should do my M.A. from Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Then clear NET and then apply for a job at a college.
    Or any other suggestion that you want to give apart from the ones mentioned above.
    Please help me.

    Suffered Loss

    Yesterday I ran into the bathroom and dropped onto the floor,
    crying out “please make it stop” as the blood began to pour;
    my stupid body had let me down once again,
    it took you away in a whirlwind of blood and pain.
    Forget the colours blue and pink and who you would’ve been,
    for all that’s left now is the colour red that cannot be unseen.
    Now I am blanketed by only grief and sorrow,
    knowing that my love wasn’t enough to keep you living through each and every ‘tomorrow’.

    The Hurting

    It’s a dark, cold September night sitting beneath the oak tree,
    watching the sky as the stars come out; making a wish for me.

    Wondering if I’ll ever feel the warmth spread through my veins like wildfire -
    if I’ll ever feel the glow of happiness again or if the sadness will never tire.

    If only I were like other teenagers...

    these days I am very sad. My best friend is going to move in in a few days and from now on I will very rarely see her. She is the only one with whom I sometimes talk about my illness, who understands me and distracts me by making me laugh. Plus I don't feel ready to undertake a new path alone. I am going to start college and I already know that I will have a hard time finding new friends. It always takes me a lot and other people are skeptical of talking to me. I am shy and because of my short stature I am older than I look and other people give nasty looks at me that make me uncomfortable. Maybe I'm worrying before I should but I'm sure that at the beginning it will be very hard for me and I am getting anxious and nostalgic for the past. I would like to go back to my school where I had many friends and my teachers supported and knew me very well. I miss them so much... I would like to live this new period with the same serenity as my friends...

    I don't know how to "blog" but i guess ill give it a shot.. I'm CAT.. Hello everyone! I am a pagan, basket case, mom of 4. I have 2 boys and 2 girls. The girls are the new ones. I have only recently gained custody of them. 11 and 8.. man. I have been a boy mom for 14 years. I am also not very feminine . My husband of 9 years and his missing clothing would agree. It has been a tough adjustment so far. All in all I think we have it covered! HAHA I WISH! I have no idea what I'm doing. Not a clue.. My boys are 14 and 5. The teenager is an ass with his fathers temper and my 5 year old is an Autistic god sent from the heavens to challenge and teach me how to be better at.. well, just life in general. .hahah.. Keep in mind that I'm not your everyday suburban mom with a starbucks coffee and leggings.. I'm the one covered in tattoos and piercings. The you will most likely spot on your morning run, snagging the bones of dead animals, and making magic with my new found pagan daughters on the side of your hiking trail.. I'm from the hood but have a soul of a 600 year old witch with a backache... My mind is wise even though I'm a a basket case. I'm a libra so I guess that makes me a good listener... Animals are my thing as well. I have 2 American Bullies and will advocate them 'til the death of me. DON'T BULLY MY BREED! My most recent, Ms. AveryJade is the star of a business venture for my husband and I. But that is enough about me!. idk how I'm gonna handle all this. It has been tough. But I believe everything happens for a reason. Some too sensitive to discuss atm, but I'm sure we'll figure it out. Who knows maybe ill meet a couple of people here to share my adventures into this new world with. Don't be afraid to hit me up.. I'm literally stuck in the house all day making potions that allow me to summon the dead to do my bidding. I vibe with anyone who's able to vibe with me.. It is a weird vibe. I promise. Just know it will be just like woody and buzz.. After a while, even though you believe me to be from a distant planet, you will realize you've got a friend in me.. Yes. I sung it.. You're judging..
