1 in 6 men have experienced sexually abusive issues by the age of 18. Why does this have to happen? This website (and yours truly) thinks that this number is probably a low estimate, considering many people do not report their sexual abuse issues. If you are that 1 in 6, or that 2 in 6, or whatever–remember, and keep this in mind–you are not alone. This site, and many others will help you remember this and keep supporting you along the way.

Many people think things or have questions that they are afraid to ask others and wonder, “Is it normal to feel this way?” The average citizen may or may not be able to afford a psychologist or have a friend who can inform them in the manner that they best feel necessary.

The Alzheimer Research Forum Home is a one stop site for those who have to deal with the awful experience of alzheimers. What can a person or a family do? First step: knowledge is indeed power.
Many times animals need good homes. They are often brought into a home where a person wants to take good care of them, feed them, water them and make sure their every need is taken care of.

These unfortunate few do not mean to harm these animals, and actually mean to help the pets they so lovingly bring into their homes–matter of fact, they normally know them by their names or by the dates the brought them in or where they found them or what shelter they got them from.
How do these people (and these animals) get help that they desperately need? What is the most important thing to treat first–is it to get the animals out, then treat the animal hoarder or is it to treat the hoarder while helping the animals then help get the animals out?
Have you seen the television show The Hoarders? Many people who watch this show may feel that this is just a very few people who experience such things, and those people on that show are not exactly “normal.” Well, unfortunately, this is more normal than most people think. Hoarding is very closely related to obsessive compulsive disorder, and there are people who have rooms and buildings and storage sheds that are full of items of things that they may never see again (or know they even have to begin with).
