Recognizing Your Addiction

Dealing with addiction is not only difficult, it can be heartbreaking. From the intensity of withdrawal to the second chance at life after rehabilitation, any recovering addict will tell you that the journey is a rocky road paved with hardship. Yet for some, the first step is the most painful and the most difficult: admitting that you have an addiction or being able to recognize the symptoms. You could have around the corner a drug rehab in northern California and still continue to live in denial or ignorance. If you struggle with drug use and its effect on your life, consider these statements and begin to help yourself.

You Have Lost Friends or Partners Over Your Drug Use

“I’m worried about you.” “You are high so much.” “Where has my friend gone?” These are all statements you might have heard from someone who was in your life but chose to leave it because of your drug use. No one wants to examine their friend or partner and see an addict, so statements like these are made out of love and concern for you. Has your relationship with drugs has become the main, or only, one in your life?

You Spend Beyond Your Means – For Drugs

Perhaps this is how one’s drug addiction begins: instead of that new cell phone or designer bag, a casual user will spend a nice bonus on cocaine. As use turns to abuse, however, addicts will find themselves sacrificing the things they need – clothes, food, rent – on drugs that they don’t. Credit card bills may pile up because they’re charging everything in order to use their cash flow to pay the dealer. Addicts are horrified when their checking accounts are wiped out faster than the blink of an eye and there’s nothing left to buy groceries. Read more…

What is Premenstrual Tension?

Some women experience certain premenstrual symptoms called premenstrual tension about 7-10 days before the start of menstrual bleeding. These premenstrual symptoms include irritability, malaise, lassitude, headache, gastrointestinal upset like constipation and spasm of colon, feeling of fullness of the breasts and abdomen, frequency of urination etc. There may also be feeling of congestion in the feet and face. In some women these symptoms become exaggerated and form a well marked psychosomatic disorder.

In some of the cases of premenstrual tension water retention can be demonstrated by an increase of body weight up to 5 kilos which is accompanied by pedal edema. This is more marked if the patient has history of phlebothrombosis. The fullness of breasts can be prominent symptom and can be accompanied by breast tenderness. On examination of breasts, there is hardness and lumpy feeling and there is also tenderness. Some women with premenstrual tension suffer from migraine headache which disappear if the woman become pregnant.

The cause or etiology of premenstrual tension is not clear. It is suggested (but not proved) that premenstrual tension may be due to excess production of estrogen and abnormal or disturbance in adrenal function, because there is always an increase of extra-cellular water throughout the body. This is because estrogen is recognized to cause water and sodium retention as seen in carcinoma of prostate, where there is excess production of estrogen. But presence of large amount of estrogen does not always produce water retention as seen in granulosa cell tumor. Adrenal cortical steroids and progesterone (progesterone containing oral contraceptive pills may are well known for their water retention properties) can also cause water retention, so it may not be always due to estrogen excess.
