after a death when you realize it is that your breaking point. or even so is it normal when it finally hits you too just lose it? Im havin to help my friend Lene' & I really am lost for words, I dont know what to say- she keeps askin is he really dead...helpful suggestions would be nice Thank you

No matter who or what dies it is always a shock. You are doing everything in your power it seems to help your friend. However, the best help is to be there for your friend. If your friend needs more help and you're at a loss for what to do... like it seems you're doing now by posting, I would suggest trying to get your friend help from someone who has studied and is educated in this field :) Your friend needs a shoulder and probably some repetitive answers ie: yes they're really dead. You're doing a good job already you seem to be a really good friend.
I hope this helps :)  (+ info)


Does anyone think it is like really weird for a 14 year old girl to be completly obssesed with writing about death??? Or just that they are fasinated with death? Cause yeah I am and I am a happy person... even ask everyone who knows me but yeah do you find thats weird... the whole writing about death thing??????

You say you are a happy person.
You may have a talent for writing or poetry.
As long as writing about death does not get you feeling down, it seems OK.
Perhaps in time you will find other subjects that interest you as well. Best Wishes.  (+ info)

You sit tell the kids to sit down with their mother. Talk to them. Ask them what they would do if they lost their mother. Ask them why they are so mean to her. Tell them they are making their mother sick. They need to be informed about this.  (+ info)

How does a miscarriage compare to the death of a child?

I consider a miscarriage a death of a child, but for the purpose of this question, "death of a child" means a child that had already been born. Are the two comparable? Is the death of a child worse?

Both loses are devastating but the main difference is how people will react to the person who lost the child. Miscarriages are seen by many as not "real" relationships so the person's grieving period is suppose to be shorter. In some case people do not even expect you to grieve. (Even though that is totally ridiculous) For a born child, people react totally different.

It really has to do with how a person percieves their miscarriage. For a born child a person has had more time to bond, however, carrying a fetus has a lot of bonding qualities attached to it. So to answer your question, it depends on the person and how they react to it.  (+ info)

What are the chances of death and complications of gastric bypass?

What are the chances of death and complications for me getting gastric bypass surgery? I already know I'm getting it and I'm about to go through therapy. Here are some details that might be of help:
• I'm 15.
• I'm 330lbs.
• I'm 6'5".

Please give me an estimate on what my chances of death or major complications are! I really want to know!

The chances of death during gastric bypass surgery are very slim. The procedure is very safe. Every patient is different, so the chances or complications will differ. Much of it will have to do with what shape you are in prior to the surgery. Your doctor will take all of that into consideration and will tell you what complications can arise. At your age they may not even consider the surgery. Your body is going through a lot of changes.

See your doctor and have him/her refer you to a bariatric surgeon. The surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate and will probably put you on a weigh loss program first. The process from the time of your initial consultation and when the surgery takes place can be several months.

I had a gastric bypass three years ago and now head the local support group for weight loss patients. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

What causes the death rattle in elderly before they pass away?

I've been working as a CNA for the past three years, and I noticed that people tend to get this rattle in their chest as they get close to death. My best guess is its fluid build up from heart failure, but really I have no clue. Anyone know why?

It's generally a build-up of fluid and/or collapse of supporting tissue. Not able to adequately clear or cough.  (+ info)

How are the Black Death and the Bubonic Plague two different things?

As a history B.A., I should know this but I keep getting the two confused. I know from a medical standpoint that these two things are different.

How are the Black Death and the Bubonic Plague two different things? I am aware that the Bubonic Plague was a result of the transmission of "yersinia pestis" to the known world (at the time anyway).

Thanks for clarifying this for me.

Well, the above answer is sort of correct. The Black Death refers to the plague which swept Europe from 1347 to 1351, killing an estimated 200 million people in 1347 alone.

Plague refers to Yersinia Pestis, in the Bubonic, Pnuemonic, and Septicemic forms known to science today.

There was a study done in 2002 that seemed to show that the Black death may not have been Plague, specifically because of the lack of rat population die-off, and because of the speed of transmission. Not all the experts agree, however.

See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/1925513.stm

Also, the BBC History Series has a great set of articles about the Black Death at http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/middle_ages/black_01.shtml

This has interested me over the last 40 years because as a young Army Medic in Vietnam I was with a unit that encountered Plague infecting human beings. It was a real wake up call to learn that this medieval killer was still a modern day problem.  (+ info)

What's the difference between a death investigator and a medical examiner or Coroner?

My 25 year old son died and a death investigator was sent out and not a medical examiner or coroner??? I have unanswered questions concerning his death. Any information given would be appreciated. No autopsy was performed on my son.

A death investigator works for the county and is sent to the scenes of death to investigate, photograph and document the circumstances surrounding the death. It is not uncommon that the medical examiner did not come, they are the doctors who perform autopsies (basically they work 9-5). They do not go to the scene of death. I presume you live in a city where they employ a medical examiner, as a coroner is an elected position (not necessarily a doctor), yet they may not always go to the scene either if there are death investigators. The investigator must have determined from the circumstances that an autopsy was not necessary or they would have ordered one.  (+ info)

What are the unpleasant things that happen after death?

I'm trying to write a story but I keep getting too general of answers for what happens to the body after death. What I want is an non watered down version of what happens. Do people really deficate themselves after death? What other less pleasant things happen?

i am a nurse and have seen more than my share of death in residents, yes all the body fluids do come out, and the person first turns a white color, then after time a ashen color. then like others say the body goes into rigor mortis where everything becomes very stiff, that is why we tie the wrists together on their stomachs, and keep thier jaw tied shut.  (+ info)
