Conditions with symptom: 'difficulty forming words and phrases fluently'
My son is almost 2, he doesnt seem to talk, he makes noises but is not forming words, he is my 2nd son and my 1st son started talking very early, should i see a doctor or is he just lazy?
i am 15 years old i have a lot of difficulty talking about my penis but after looking at your websites i have become a little concerned. is it normal for the foreskin to remain over the head while both flaccid and erect? i suffer from no pain when masturbating or urinating its just other sites say this is a problem and needs to be sorted. because of this i am also afraid to let my girlfriend see me.
Does anyone find that often Drs/ Hospitals have very little information / advice on Coeliac Disease? It sometimes seem like they feel that it's dead easy to just avoid 'wheat' (their words not mine!). They don't appear to grasp the cross contamination, mass produced, hidden gluten in products and the various levels of 200 ppmillion of gluten which often cause reactions in Coeliacs. I think the C4 programme is great at this but I'd welcome knowing what others find and which hospitals are the best. I've found I've learnt more from groups like Coeliac UK, GFGuerrialls etc than from the Dr. Sad but true. I wish there were more online resources for teenagers as it's hard for them to come to terms with GF when their mates are snacking on fast foods...
While in hospital last year (the one i was diagnoised in) for an operatation, when i told staff i needed gf food (including nurses) they looked at me like i had two heads, hadnt a clue what it meant. They coped alright till my last day, wasnt supposed to stay for lunch but did, didnt get the right paper slip to say i needed special food. complained to staff, they said just write it by hand that i needed it to be gf. got soup which had bread in it, not exactly gf!!!
i am gettin to this stage now with my 9 year old daughter who was diagnosed at 15 months with coeliac it is very hard to find eating out places at best of times never mind fast food i have saw a gr8 improvement over the last 8 years about the knowledge but its still not enough
It is very difficult for us mums and dads to objectively see our children. My son has aspergers and he displays none of those traits. However I know children who are 'normal' how have some of those traits! I personally watched how my son interacted at playground and nursery and realised that all the children have quirks at that age (lots of really bossy girls!). By Primary 1, it became evident that he understood the school interactions less than other children. However, he was a 'nice boy and never bothered the teacher too much, so she admitted that she tended to forget about him'. Basically the school nurse was my saviour, she realised that he had difficulty hopping (he has hypermobile joints)and he was referred to the occupational therapy team, this lead to a referral to psychologist. Intially, I was put down as over mumsy (I explained too many things to my son - the school blamed me!). The psychologist was my ally, he realised what was happening and expalined the situation to the school from then on the school have been much better. He has specialist help with motor skills, language (social stories) and reading. I hope this very brief summary helps.
