1. I asked my doctor during my post-op. He didn’t know and took a picture of my knee😬 so here I am reaching out to Reddit

  2. Ok this might be far fetched but this happened to me after stopping Zyrtec. Could this be the case? I had to ride out the withdrawal.

  3. i rly didnt know that this is such a problem, i thought i am just stupid but i am getting so many comments saying i definitely need help. what is cognitive behavioral therapy?

  4. I have food anxiety too. I understand how you feel. This is a real condition and you can get help. Help will be best found in talking to a doctor if you can. They might prescribe antidepressants which can help with OCD type food and contamination anxiety and therapy. Please try to get help. You deserve to live a life that is less stressful.

  5. I’m glad I’m not alone in this. I’m guessing it’s a rare side effect.

  6. Yeah, I've also been taking olanzapine for six years and love it, no issues so far with my blood sugars etc but I have put on 10kg. Which isn't a bad thing, because I was underweight before. That sucks, though. I do want to eventually get off it and just be on lamotrigine and lithium.

  7. Never tried lithium! I know that’s a gold standard, and maybe that’s what I need to try. I really wish I could’ve stayed on olanzapine, but it would’ve eventually given me type 2 diabetes.

  8. Mixed breeds/muts! Dachshund and chihuahua mixes are particularly cute.

  9. I think I have whatever that fear is—the one of holes or seeds or round things like this. Yikes!

  10. Stuffit is what the company I work for uses, steel wool isn't a bad alternative, it just rusts so it needs to be replaced from time to time.

  11. Thanks. Two mentions of Stuffit seems like this is the way to go!

  12. I wonder if black widows can bite through oyster shucking gloves.

  13. Thanks. I am overthinking it—started second guessing myself that water shouldn’t sit out for hours like food

  14. you’re good, wouldn’t let it sit for days as it will taste stale, but it’s fine there’s nothing in it that will hurt you

  15. Thanks! With food there’s a temperature timeline, and in the wild, stagnant water can breed bacteria. So, it’s interesting to learn that these same conditions don’t apply to tap water or bottled water. I’m guessing it’s because in the wild the environment introduces contaminants from nature that aren’t found inside a home. And unlike food, tap or bottled water does not grow spores? Just trying to learn!

  16. So, as the person who asked a large number, if not all, of the questions referenced here as being stupid and annoying, let me just say a few words. I have OCD and severe health anxiety that is concentrated around food safety. I am on medication and see a psychiatrist regularly. I am miserable. This is no way to live. It’s really hard. My questions may sound stupid, but I have literally gone without drinking water for 8 hours because I was afraid my bottled water was unsafe to consume. I come here and ask questions because I am tortured mentally. I’m trying to learn about the science behind food safety to help with my issues. I get it, it’s annoying to read and pisses you off and makes you feel your time is wasted. If I’ve caused you those feelings, I am sorry. I’m not trolling. I’m just trying to find my way out of an anxiety spiral. I appreciate everyone’s patience and help.

  17. I’m allergic to Sulpha and Morphine, welcome to the club!

  18. Sulfa, macrobid, penicillin, erythromycin…I’m almost out of antibiotics.

  19. Most patients tend to prefer this method in my experience. Feel free to reach out directly with any additional questions or concerns you might have.

  20. Sertraline is infamously fairly easy to wean off of, and some physicians recommend weaning by up to 50mg per week at a time. That said, I prefer to move a bit slower with my patients to minimize the likelihood of withdrawal. I would cut back to 25mg for 2wks, OR until your body has adjusted. Then, cut back again to 12.5mg for 2wks, or again, until your body has adjusted, before coming off completely. The key to all of this is to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. If you drop down a dosage and you're having withdrawal, maintain that dose for as long as necessary until your body has adjusted before moving onto the next step.

  21. Thank you! I’m going to ask if I can do the slower taper. I think that would make me more comfortable.

  22. Physically: dirty, raggedy fingernails. Emotionally: selfish, mean, racist, homophobic, etc.

  23. When this happened to me I had a vaginal ultrasound and they found I had fibroids.
