Question: I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia a few months ago. After many different references, doctors, states, hospitals, some have told me that chemotherapy would be best way to go. Others have said that bone marrow transplants would help. What are the pros and cons of both? Which would you think would be best? Advice?

Normally, Chemotherapy is tried first. If it is successful, a bone marrow transplant may not be necessary. Do your research on this disease and it's treatments. Go on line [Google: Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia], call cancer treatment centers, call cancer hot lines, call cancer hospitals. Do not wait, and do not do anything that you don't feel completely comfortable with. If you have questions about anything, ASK. This goes for any doctor, nurse, therapist, or tech you will run into during your treatments. You have rights as a patient, and the most basic one is the right to be informed. [Google: Patient rights] The only way to make a good decision, is to make an informed decision. God Bless you in your research, treatment and recovery!

How old is he?That makes a big difference. If he's in high school..could be hormones and "growing pains". Sounds like what we used to call a "brat"...having a "temper tantrum". If he's been like that for ten years...has anyone tried to stop him or change him? Did he ever get any punishment for it. ? If he keeps on..he'll end up in prison. You say don't mention getting him any help...then what do you think we can do from here? I'm pretty sure he needs some medication. It could make all the difference in his life. He can't do this by himself. He probably doesn't even think anything is wrong with him if he's gotten away with it this long. They had a boy on Montel who was similar to this. They sent him off to some kind of school or something. If you don't get him any help...hopefully he won't get married. Hope he doesn't kill ya'll or himself. He must be miserable. Ask a dr. about giving him risperdal.

Anorexia nervosa. And Social Anxiety Disorder. I haven't dealt with either. My whole family is full of mental illness! My parents are BOTH depressed, as well as my older brother. My younger brother has MAJOR OCD and a phobia of school and ALL school related objects (paper, scissors, crayons, pens, school buses). And my younger sister has some mega anger management issues. Not lying! Just thought I'd share...

Gender Identity Disorder (though whether it should really be considered a mental illness is currently up for debate). I'm doing all I can to move forward in my transition, but unfortunately there isn't a whole lot I can do right now to speed up the process. I just have to live with it for the time being, just like I've always had to...
