Thank you for referring Scott back to see me for his ongoing management of his idiopathic hypersomnia, obstructive sleep apnoea and restless legs syndrome, alongside his new emerging issue of chronic cough. With regards to his sleep, he has noticed significant worsening of this since his trip to Thailand. Of note, whilst in Thailand, he was unable to use his CPAP machine and on return has found it difficult to readjust to, but has started using it in the last couple of months. Whilst he was he off the CPAP machine, he did note that his restless legs worsened significantly to point where he was having to go for a walk just before bedtime.
Nearly 19 years ago, my Dad suffered a severe heart attack. The family was summoned to the emergency room. There we met with the surgeons, and were informed his condition was grim and he was not likely to survive the night. They advised if he did recover, he was likely to have suffered brain damage due to lack of oxygen. After the initial shock, for an unexplained reason, I felt at peace.
This movie was made in 1999 and is based on a novel by Joe Connelly. He was a New York paramedic and a novel was based on the life of paramedic. The movie is all about the exhausted and depressed paramedic who is haunted by patients whom he failed to save. He was Frank Pierce, who works night shift with various partners, and he looks tired and depressed throughout the movie because he was not able to save any patients for a long time. Rose was one of them whom he was not able to save, and her face appears on the bodies of others.
He worried he would lose jobs from the disease (31-32) or his children would be targets for teasing because of it (49). He was constantly trying to hide signs of his disorder from the tabloids for fear of his diagnosis leaking (47). Consequently, he hid his disease for a long time (Apte
He was one of my first friends and my first role model. We lost him last year due to lung cancer. Through the journey of us trying to get him better he was so calm and accepting. I am the man I am today because of my grandfather James Gaddey My grandfather had a rough life.
I mentioned in the above paragraph that my father no longer experienced pain his back after the operation. However, a new setback came up; since he was in pain for months and not being able to walk upright this caused the nerves in his left leg to become damaged. I have been serving as a part time caregiver along with my mother and a professional caregiver. After my father was released from his final rehabilitation facility it has been an ongoing excruciating experience having him home. My shift for taking care of my father starts right after my mother goes to bed which is around 11:30pm.
A lot of people might not realize how PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) can affect people’s lives. It is a mental disorder that can drastically alter someone’s life. I have friends that have been in combat zones and have flashbacks due to certain noises. It is terrifying to watch them go through this. Just the sound of some fireworks could trigger an episode and they are truly scared for their lives.
(Sayre 1144) One may endure physical hardship during was but one may also suffer emotional damage as well that can even be more detrimental. Regardless, Kirchner also painted Self Portrait as a Sick Person in 1918, which illustrates himself suffering with post traumatic stress disorder, alcoholism and a few other conditions he suffered from. (Aronson and Ramachandran) Even though Kirchner was still well alive after and during the war, he was not a reliable source of consistent artwork because of his mental
Many American soldiers are troubled by the various aspects of warfare. In this world, the threat of war is always present. War by Sebastian Junger, as well as other sources, shows that the living standards for many current and former soldiers is grueling. This is because many troops suffer from mental illness, poor or no shelter, and soldiers can spend long periods of time away from their families and far from their homes, thus leading to several emotional consequences. Soldiers returning from deployment are often plagued by mental illness.
One of the well-known psychologists in the whole world, John Bowlby has researched and concluded how important it is for every human being to create social attachment. Important Bowlby’s theory is the theory about attachments that says how every child that is born has an urge to create attachments, because these attachments are necessary for our surviving skills. He said that if a baby that is six months old is separated from his mother, he will suffer as a grown-up person in a way where his responses to situations where he has to separate from his company, will result in a destructive behavior. Bowlby emphasized how important mother-figure is in an infant’s life by stating that without that first connection, it will be hard for that person
