Decreasing the Scariness of Starting Therapy

The researchers don’t know if their findings also apply to men, but they note that Alzheimer’s disease is 1.5 times more likely in a woman than a man. The body of research findings available now favors a most simple explanation for this – women live longer than men, and in the case of Alzheimer’s disease, time is important. Women also are more likely to have health conditions that up their risk, being obese, diabetic or having high cholesterol.

Understand that whether you are pear or apple shaped (larger waist compared to hips), you have this shape for life, even if your weight changes. So while you might not be able to change the fact you carry extra hip fat, you can take steps to be carrying less of it. Eating a well-balanced, nutritious diet is showing itself to be quite important, as is being active physically and socially while enjoying mentally stimulating activities.

Right now it may seem like taking on an impassable mountain, but you can beat your OCD. OCD is a disorder characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive actions, such as cleaning, checking, counting, or hoarding. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a potentially disabling condition that can persist throughout a person’s life.

Understand that having OCD does not mean you are crazy. OCD is an anxiety disorder. Having OCD simply means that you have developed illogical stresses and fears and your mind has come up with rituals to help you deal with them.Be careful making a self-diagnosis. It is never a good idea. It is easy for someone who is not a therapist to mistake normal worry for symptoms of OCD. Get a proper diagnosis to confirm you truly have or don’t have OCD. Don’t play guessing games with your health.
