My neighbor boy is eight and he is mean to animals. I don't let my kids play with him. Is this a sign of him being abused?

I don't trust any man. I was abused as a child and again in my first marriage. Is it possible to trust again? If so, how?

What is the link between depression and physical pain? And can you get rid of the physical pain while you are dealing with the depression? Or will the pain remain until depression is resolved?

I was just told by my doctor that I had IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Can someone help me understand a little about what is IBS? Is there any way to treat it, besides medication?

I have recently been battling with depression and can manage it most days. But recently, when I get into large group settings, I find that I start to feel physically awful. I get sweaty and shaky and dizzy...I actually feel physically sick. I have to go find a quiet, cool place for these feelings to subside. My friend said it could be anxiety attacks, but I don't recollect ever having anxiety attacks. Do these symptoms fit anxiety?

What can I do if I know a child is being abused? Am I obligated to call the police if I know a child is being abused?

My husband has changed since going into the military and being trained. Things are more tense at home, because he seems less tolerant, gets angry easily, and has become more likely to yell, hit or spank our children. I don't know what to do!

When we disagree, my spouse calls me names. Then I call him names and it becomes abusive and nothing gets resolved. What should we do?

My husband is always asking me to handle the issues of running the house and dealing with the kids. Then he criticizes what I do. What do I do?
