We discussed alternative approaches to the treatment of anxiety with different medications. The two medications my preceptor often suggests to patients that are non addictive are Vistaril and Seroquel.

Apparently, some people believe that making overweight people feel ashamed of themselves will motivate them to change their behavior so they start eating less, exercising more and finally start to lose weight. Others are just horrible human beings, plain and simple. Horrible people often feel comfortable saying things over the internet that they would not say in real life. However, when someone falls prey to body shaming, it puts a lot of stress on them and in the case of overweight teens, it can drive them to handle that stress by taking in more calories and gaining even more weight.

In the United States, approximately 49% of veterans who saw combat have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (Smith). PTSD is a condition in which an individual experiences a traumatic ordeal that causes a stimulation of the fight-or-flight response when no signs of harm or present. In health care, it is important for professionals to not only be aware of the symptoms of this disorder, but also be aware of what can be done to treat it and how this population is different from other individuals. After experiencing a traumatic event while deployed, symptoms of PTSD may not arise or be evident until months or years after returning from deployment.
