The Dark side of ADHD in my marriage

ADHD goes hand in hand with many definitions: lazy, excitable, overstimulated. I've heard these and many more. And I'm sure that in many ways these describe it perfectly. But there's a darker side to having ADHD. One in which you can't comprehend unless it's you or your married to it. That place where all the medication and therapy still simply can't reach. There are funny parts for sure. I laugh and joke with my partner about them in some ways. Often to ease the tension and strain I know it puts on our marriage; or to hope he sees it in the colour of humour vs hurt and exhaustion. It's like a super thrill ride of a roller coaster until you reach the top and realize the bills haven't been paid. Or she's spent 500 dollars of your saved wedding money on absolutely nothing. Its hilarious to look back on the moment I tried to cook an entire meal from scratch for guests (although never having cooked more then pasta prior to this) and attempted a Gordon Ramsey recipe with a couple Pinterest desserts thrown in their simultaneously nursing a baby. We had to order Chinese. Because I almost burnt the house down. I love to joke about being a super fun parent until I remember we have to go to school and then lose my mind trying to get children dressed, fed and lunches made. And it's only then do I start looking for my keys. Its a funny moment when we laugh about how I put things in "special places." It's a running joke in my house. Because my mind is running so fast I actu...

Conclusion: Our research outcome paves the way to create a device for cough monitoring in real-life situations. Significance: Our proposal is aligned with a more comfortable and less disruptive patient monitoring, with benefits for patients (allows self-monitoring of cough symptoms), practitioners (e.g., assessment of treatments or better clinical understanding of cough patterns), and national health systems (by reducing hospitalizations).

Authors: Ha JK, Hwang CJ, Lee DH, Lee MY, Yoon SJ, Lee CS Abstract The purpose of this study was to compare various sagittal spinopelvic parameters between patients with and without degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis (DLS). A total of 165 patients who underwent surgery for low back and/or radicular pain were divided into two groups: those without DLS (non-DLS group; n = 85) and those with DLS (DLS group; n = 80). In all sagittal spinopelvic parameters, no significant difference was found between the non-DLS and DLS groups. The mean pelvic incidence (PI) value of the DLS group (56.4°) was almost similar to th...

We present the 10 years results of 33 patients operated on between April 2002 and May 2006 diagnosed with a "sports hernia". The injury was treated with a bilateral abdominal procedure according to Nesovic combined with a bilateral adductor release after unsuccessful conservative treatment of at least 2 months. There were 32 male patients between 18 and 43 years and one female patient aged 25 years with a mean age of 28.8 at time of surgery. All procedures were bilateral. Patients were seen in the postoperative clinic and a questionnaire was collected after 2 years and 10 years. Within 16 weeks, 30 patients (90,9...

We report the injuries recorded over a period of 10 years in 156 Greek elite male and female gymnasts. A total of 2390 injuries were reported for a rate of 1,5 new injuries per year per athlete. Most commonly affected areas were the hip (18.5%), the ankle (16.5%), the lumbar spine (16%) and the foot (16%). The most frequent diagnosis was tendinitis (32%), followed by low back pain (20%), and sprains (12%). Fifteen athletes (9%) sustained serious injuries that required surgery. Rhythmic gymnasts had significantly more overuse type injuries compared to artistic gymnasts (p = 0.049). Gymnastics is a sport with a high incidenc...

DISCUSSION: This Babcock technique with endoscopic necrosectomy has not been previously described in the literature, to our knowledge. Babcock forceps were an ideal tool in our case because they were able to gain access to the obstruction in the stent, but the "teeth" are small and dull enough to prevent from catching onto the metal stent mesh.

Authors: Kim J, Lee K, Lee W Abstract Eosinophilic esophagitis is a rare disease in Asian countries, but its incidence is growing rapidly in Western countries. The main pathophysiology of eosinophilic esophagitis is esophageal epithelial barrier dysfunction; disruption of the esophageal epithelial barrier easily induces antigen sensitization to foods and aeroallergens, which leads to subsequent esophageal inflammation as a result of eosinophil recruitment. Here we report a case of an 11-year-old Korean boy who suffered from fever, odynophagia, dysphagia, and chest pain. His upper endoscopic findings showed longitud...
