    My mom turns 48 on January 18. She’s not a very healthy person and usually eats what she wants, which is usually potoato chips, cracklings, pork rinds, sunflower seeds, and whatever other salty junk you can think of. We’ve also had shrimp regularly one or twice a mint which I know is high in cholesterol. She also has always bought sugary foood regularly since we were little kids. This is the basic stuff I can recall off the top of my head. She also doesn’t exercise, just watches videos on her phone when she’s at home. She’s not in bad shape or obese or anything but she seems to show no concern for her health. I’ve heard cardiac issues in women are more prominent around this age range. I haven’t asked her about the last time she’s visited the doctor but I wouldn’t guess anytime recently. I'm not overly concerned but someone with her diet and at her age couldn’t be in the shape internally, right?

    I’m 21 years old and I’m an African-American male. I’ve was usually active from a young up to now and have never had any serious medical issues in life. Although I’m not as active I’ve been thinking of taking up skateboarding but am stricken with anxiety because I’m afraid of having cardiac failure while exercising. I’ve been dealing with extreme anxiety since 2015 which has gotten way better as of now. But I often wake up with a fast heartbeat, experience occasional heart palpitations and become nervous that I have some underlying issue that has never been addressed. What are the chances that this is possible? Should I have a ekg performed by a doctor?

    At the beginning of the semester I had positive thoughts but as the sesmester wore on depression from my past and dread of the future set in so I wasn’t exactly doing keeping up with the schoolwork. I’ve basically failed every class unbelievably now and and am unsure of what will happen now. I’m certain I’ll have to retake all these classes next semester. This is horrific. I wish I could go back in time to the first day of classes. What is likely to happen with my standing with the school. I have no way of getting a job and almost zero support from my family. I wish I could go back and just focus on school. I let a lot of other things get the best of my mind and now I’m stuck in a rut.

    I’m certain I’m going to fail my English class this semester. I tried to catch up but it just wasn’t enough. I wanted to do well but thought too much about the end goal of passing the class and not actively doing the work. I lacked confidence and this caused me to fall behind and become complacent and regularly fall behind on the assignments and there definitely is too little time too catch back up. I can retake this class next semester but I feel guilty about allowing other things especially hard times in the past cloud my success. How can I move forward without letting this setback hang over my head?

  • Can electrolyte powder replenish all lost minerals on its own or am I supposed to eat foods with high electrolyte content as well?

  • How can I replenish electrolytes lost through sweat? How much should I increase my salt intake? And how much water should I drink?

    When I went to the doctor I was told I was dehydrated although I didn’t notice any difference. Is salt the only ingredient I need to balance this deficit? I’ve gotten some Himalayan salt? Is this all I need? How much should I take each day? Whenever I drink more water my urine is really clear like it’s not even being absorbed by my body at all.... show more

Is this all I need? How much should I take each day? Whenever I drink more water my urine is really clear like it’s not even being absorbed by my body at all. That’s why I’m convinced I have a salt imbalance.

    I’m 21 and I’ve been thinking bling about my past and how I’ve gotten to this point because I don’t feel comfortable around these people I’ve grown up with. They haven’t really offered me any real guidance to being an successful, independent person but I can clearly remember all the criticisms and mean or selfish things they done to me which affect my mental state even more. Even going to community college wasn’t my own choice and while I have been going I don’t have all the tools necessary to succeed or the mentality to stayed focused. I really don’t feel happy here at all and am keen to continue attending but there’s nothing else I can do. I also have been slacking this weekend on two essays and some typography project because this is just clouding my mind. How can I at least get through this semester?
