Is it possible to die of a broken heart?

Yes, but it's very rare. “Broken heart syndrome,” otherwise known as stress cardiomyopathy or takotsubo cardiomyopathy, manifests itself as intense chest pain that comes on suddenly as a reaction to a surge of stress hormones. This is caused by an emotionally stressful event, such as the death of a loved one or even something positive like winning the lottery. Unlike a heart attack, there’s no evidence of blocked arteries in broken heart syndrome. Additionally, blood tests show no sign of heart damage.

While many who experience broken heart syndrome make a full recovery, the condition is sometimes fatal. It has been speculated that actress Debbie Reynolds, who died one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher, and Johnny Cash, who died within months of wife, June Carter Cash, suffered from the syndrome.

How do you know if your marriage therapist is doing a good job?

If what he/she is telling you is helping then they are doing a good job, or at least what they are meant to do. But if they are turning you against each other and making things worst, the obviously not.

A good therapist will help you both find your strengths and work with them to help you resolve the issues. They should manage the "blame game" and no one should be shamed or blamed. There may be a combination of single and couples visits. I think there should be a positive feeling for both people as they find ways to do what they can, rather than spending time diagnosing the people. Success has to do with both people working toward a better relationship, not just in terms of communication or giving what one wants in exchange.

How long does treatment for Dissociative Identity Disorder take?


Finding a therapist or psychiatrist who agrees with the information contained in the DSM IV is important. I have also heard that depending on how experienced the therapist or psychiatrist is in dealing with DID is also a factor in the timeframe for recovery.

There are different schools of thought in regards to DID and treatment will depend on the patients ability to access alters, handle the stress of recalling painful or tramatic memories and working through them. It should not be rushed because the patient can become overwhelmed and at risk.

Recovery involves, getting in touch with the alters, opening lines of communication between the host and the alters and then, working through the painful mermories. There is only so much that a person can handle at a time. Once the memories have been processed, the goal is to integrate all alters into the host. This can occur as the memories are recovered, managed, and resolved.

Some are able to move ahead faster than others, and it just depends on the person's makeup. Personally I believe the speed at which a person can move forward depends on the extent of abuse, or trauma that has occurred and the length of time this occurred and the age that the abuse or trauma occurred and when it stopped. Sometimes it is still continuing.


With respect to the answers above, it is not necessary to find a therapist or psychiatrist who "believes" in DID. Although DID is a controversial diagnosis, any psychologist or psychiatrist should be equipped to handle treatment of this disorder. Those who disagree that this is a separate clinical diagnosis (and I am among them) do not doubt the presence of the phenomenon -- we just believe that it is a manifestation of a personality disorder (not a "social disorder") and can be treated successfully from this perspective. The treatment will not vary, regardless of the clinician's perspective. What will matter is finding a therapist you trust and like, and consistently following through with treatment recommendations.

I will also add that it is not always necessary to unbury every skeleton in the closet in order to get better. Often that kind of therapy is counterproductive and can lead to further fragmentation or even to frank psychosis. The idea is to consolidate the "personalities" -- which are just splintered off embodiments of your coping mechanisms -- so that you end up as one viable, integrated person who can cope with life's stresses.

How does one tell if a 4-year-old has attention problems?

Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder: The ADD symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder come in many forms and no two people display the same symptoms of ADD or ADHD.

The better question is: can psychopathic deviation be successfully treated? The answer is a resounding NO. Often treatment attempts are only successful in increasing deviant behaviour.

Is there a name or term for vivid dreams in which you are hurt or injured and when you wake up you can still feel the pain for hours or even days afterward?

Are you sure it isn't the other way around? -- The pain causing the dream? Yes. Study REM Sleep. Go on google and type in: what is REM? This will take you through many links. We all go through difficult sleep patterns. Usually when we are under stress we can have nightmares, or even the feeling of falling. If you really think of it, who has died from falling? No one, because your brain won't allow you hit the bottom! It is no different to dream of someone chasing you and waking up in a cold sweat (dripping wet) and out of breath. If you dream you have hurt yourself your brain and body organs (especially your adrenal gland) is actually activated as it would be during the day and thus, yes, you can be sore or have a bit of a pain for a few hours. Also look up photos or videos of "sleep patterns." You will see from this research how much we actually change positions in our sleep. It's incredible. Marcy

How do tears protect your body?

Well, tears don't really "protect" the body, as in like skin and bones protect internal organs. Tears are water with filth that has gotten into you're eyes. So if you got dust, pollen in you're eye(s), you can cry a little or create tears and the dirt and filth will come out with the tear. Usually using eye drops help, or you could lift you're upper eye lid over and tear tears will form.

I hope this helped!

Why do you dream of falling sometimes?

It's usually happens because of resent activities that happen in a day.

When falling dreams occur as one is drifting off to sleep, they represent the subconscious mind's literal depiction of "falling" asleep. At other times during the night, falling dreams usually symbolize the dreamer's feelings of being out of control and unable to stop something from happening.

How does truth serum work?

a drunk person and some one injected with sodium pentothal (truth serum) are about the same all it really does is about the same as alcohol ever noticed when you are drunk you find it easier to tell the truth all truth serum does is lower your talking inhibitions basically making you to not mind telling the truth

Answer 2:

In reality there is no such thing as a real truth serum as most people would imagine. Things that are considered truth serums are drugs that lower a person's inhibitions which should in theory cause the person to tell more truth. The problem is that many drugs used as a TS are CNS depressants such as ethyl alcohol, barbiturates, and other similar sedatives. The problem with sedative is they lower cognitive function and memory, this often leads to a subject mixing fantasy with fact. Another thing that adds to the unreliability of TS drugs are that they often simply increase talking but not actual truth telling.

Why did the settlers who founded Pennsylvania leave their original homes?


One item was that there was no more land in Europe. What there was had already been claimed. The property was being passed down to the oldest sons, leaving any other sons with no real source of income, other than to work for their brothers or other farmers. Coming to the new world allowed them to own their own property and be their own bosses.

The Pennsylvania Dutch included a large number of Hessian Mercenaries that deserted their units before they went back to Europe for that reason.

Others were moving out of the more heavily settled areas of New England, in some cases moving away from religious oppression.
People wanted to go to Pennsylvania to practice their religion- The Quakers.
