I agree 110% with Penny. It is a big surgery and you have every reason to be stressed, but please have it done! CABG is a routine surgery these days, and most people are worried until it's done, and then once you are over that hump, are so relieved just to have it over with. You will have a team of doctors and nurses following you along the entire journey. My Mom had TWO bypass surgeries, all before the age of 60 and she is doing great now. When she found out she had to have it done a second time, she was so upset, and wanted to call it quits right then. But after it was over, she recovered very quickly and was home in less than 4 days. Now she's walking 2 miles daily, and feels great. Please don't give up. You can do it!

I am a 62 1/2 year old Black Female. I tend to be very, very emotional and depressed lately. In the past three years 3 of my loved ones have passed away: my husband, my mother, and my oldest brother. Am I menopausal compounded with grief? And what are the symptoms and what can I do about it? Thanks

Hello. Well I am a 15 year old boy, and I never feel happy anymore. I really don t know what to do, I have thought about where my life is heading ect. and I don t really like it. It all started back when i was about 11, my parents split up because my dad cheated on my mum for some bitch of a woman which ruined my family, and family was a major key of my life. That night, my sister and I slept in the same bed because she was talking to me trying to cheer me up cause i was balling my eyes out, and I said to her, I m going to turn into a kid like every other kid who s parents are split up, a failure. As i said, this has pretty much become true. I am now seeking help off the internet because I don t know what to do anymore. I started a new school because in year 7 and 8, i lost most of my friends due to them doing drugs and I would never do such a thing, so i moved out of that group and moved school. I am friends with people who I don t particulary like, and I have been asked to join the cool group several times, each time denying cause I know that they are druggies. When i moved schools, my first term went horribly, i am now in 2nd term. I feel as if though I had anxiety to go to school, I literally had to have someone drag me out of my bed to get me up, and alot of the time I would just stay in bed and cut school without my parents knowing. I use to be a sport star, succeeding every sport possible because of my natural ability, but that has all dropped cause I thought to myself whats the point? I have lied to my parents like any other teenage boy about some things, but my dad, he ruined my life, my family, but I can t say that to him, I don t know why, and when he accuses me of being a liar, everytime I just crumble inside wanting to punch him in the face. Now, to my schooling. I use to get 80% or above on every test, come home, do homework or revision, now I can barely pass a test, can t get any motivation to do study or homework so I fail regardless of how much my parents shout at me for not doing it, so please help me. Thank you for reading this.
