    Addicted to drugs

    Long story short I had to hit rock bottom in order to get better. If there's any way around it, I hope nobody else has to. I had to be homeless, begging and stealing and sick as a dog before I could start getting better. I'm clean now. Sometimes I want to get high, most of the time I don't...

    My son is suffering from sleep paralysis. What should I do?

    If he is on psychiatric medications then one or a combination of them could be the cause of it. I only ever had sleep paralysis once in my life and I was on new medications.

    I want to transition from overwhelmingly negative to overwhelmingly positive

A little background about me: DISCLAIMER: it's a bit negative: I am a recovering addict with bipolar and Asperger's Syndrome (which is now usually referred to as mild Autism Spectrum Disorder.) I also experience...
