  • Card 10 / 32:
    Drugs such as lidocaine and novocaine act as Na + channel blockers. In other words, they prevent sodium from moving across the neuronal membrane. Why would this particular effect make these drugs such effective local anesthetics?

    The action potential is initiated by an influx of Na+ into the neuron. If this process is prevented, then no action potentials in neurons in a given area will occur. Therefore, any painful stimuli would not result in action potentials carrying that information to the brain.

why people suddenly bust into tears in nights or middle of the night?
N. Reply
did they laugh uncontrollably to?
Richard
how long have they been doing this?
Richard
Well people are more sensitive after dark, if they burst that means that what they gather (sentiments, ideas, feelings, etc...) are way to much for them and they need a realise... crying products endorphine that make you feel better...
Dani

if a person is in same sex relationship, is it a psychological disorder or is it just okay to be in it?
Prasuta Reply
Homosexuality is not a disorder. It is a form of sexual orientation. Being in a same sex relationship is a completely normal and healthy form of sexual expression.
Himshikha
Thanks for the answer.
Prasuta
It is not a disorder... It is a biological feature n various other patterns of relationship come into account. The one must consult to a psychologist if in trouble with her\her own appearance. It would be helping!
Lakshika
Thanks
Prasuta
just ok
Richard
👍Thanks
Prasuta
where would the psychological disorder come into play?
Richard
Richard, what do you mean?
Himshikha
In this case?
Lakshika
Its the thing that the society thinks it to be a psychological problem.. so.. most of the people discriminate & misbehave with the homosexual people.
Prasuta
yes in this case
Richard
A lot of it has to do with misinterpretation of religious teachings.
Himshikha
A lot of people believed (and still continue to believe) that someone with schizophrenia, a real and tangible mental disorder, is possessed by a spirit. It takes time for scientific research to be accepted by the common people. And now a lot of people accept that homosexuality is natural
Himshikha
unfortunately Society still has a struggle with acceptance
Richard
Society thinks that we are born to give birth to our next generation ONLY. And one's happiness is of no value to them. They try to drag and put everyone in the way they see the world.
Prasuta
Homosexuality is not a disorder..first thing.. In this case., uncertainty come into play when misterpreted self image and acts done by the person himself other than the society itself. Bodily orientation should be known n accepted completely.
Lakshika
Still in many countries it is illegal.. I don't know when will it change!
Prasuta
Sadly, that's true. Although evolutionary theorists believe that straight people who procreate should be more accepting of homosexuals since the latter cannot reproduce and hence do not pose competition for the heterosexuals. Homosexuals are also seen as more caring and family oriented.
Himshikha
The person become victimized with his\her wrong guidance n apply all relationship pattern.. That's why for self concept, one must visit psychologist. In normal cases, it is not required. Just accept oneself completely
Lakshika
It will take a lot of time for people to completely accept homosexuality but a lot of progress has already been made in the area which gives hope!
Himshikha
It is the basic nature of universe, if it snach u, it'll bestow u something else.!!! Equality rules smh
Lakshika
True!
Himshikha
hmm... But once I have searched in google. it showed the result that how two girls can reproduce without any male partner using skin cell technology.. Can anyone tell me whether it is correct information or not?
Prasuta
Skin cell? Do you mean stem cells?
Himshikha
May be.
Prasuta
hope is a powerful force

Richard
Why would it be a psychological disorder?
Katie
Can anyone suggest me how to cope up with such a situation, where most of the people (including family members) around will go against if anytime they come to know about it? How to fight with the society?
Prasuta
you can cope with it by not letting Society dictate what you believe or what you feel you decide
Richard
it should temporary not permanent.
Sandeep
Don't fight with anyone.!! Make peace inside n so outside... Basically.., accept urself n make an aroma at home to shw them tht homosexual one are very normal.. Like let them watch documentary on tht.. N society, nvr care abt it. Jst b urself!!!!!
Lakshika
Thanks
Prasuta
if you ever feel like you really need someone to talk to you can always call the crisis hotline 24/7
Richard
What is that? I did not get it. plz explain. @Richard
Prasuta
it's a hotline that anyone can call from everything from A to Z whether it's just needing someone to talk to or anything is there 24/7 there's nothing that you can talk about that we can't deal with
Richard
ok.. how to get in touch with that?
Prasuta
if it's not in your phone book and you can go online and look up the national crisis hotline from there it'll probably give you a location in your area to call it's a free number
Richard
if you go on the internet you can probably find them there they'll give you an 800 number to call and from there this should be a local number
Richard
ok...
Prasuta
They really can help you. I've been struggling in the last few years, and it helped.
Martyna
It'll be fine!!!! Dear.. Alwys accept n appreciate wht u r...
Lakshika
Yes...
Prasuta
not what you are..who you are 😀
Richard
yes... I hv got it. Thanks a lot
Prasuta
yes.. it should be the thing that I'm a human being and I can love anyone I want. This is what society needs to understand.
Prasuta
amen
Richard
Love and support to you, Prasuta xx
Himshikha
Thanks to all
Prasuta
I see people here they agree that it okay to have sex with a person from the same sex. Dear friends God created Adam and Eva how and the truth will stand strong forever that the same sex marriage is not allowed and it against nature. Be blessed all of you..
WILLIAM
Can your prove that there's a God and if you get to that, do let me know what he/she thinks about Two Adams or Two Eves getting together because honestly I'm dying to hear from this imaginary creature
Himshikha
a human existing, natural proof. such a complex being that creation is known. there needs to be a higher being to have created it
Braulio
Why did it take so long for this higher being to create Homo Sapiens when we know that Big Bang happened 3.5 billion years ago? What was the higher being doing in all the time in between? I suggest you to question the nature of reality and not take other people's word for it
Himshikha
don't go around raining on anyone's parade. God loves all its children, no matter who they have sex or who they decide to get married. Love is for everyone, even for people who decide to hurt others
Sofia
Don't give up on what u want @prasuta. I'm sure you will find ur place and some peace with it. don't give up so we make a world where the next generation doesn't have to worry about their sexuality like is a society problem.
Sofia
13.5 billion*
Himshikha
Sofia, it's honestly so refreshing to see people like you who do not use God to defend their own biases. Hope other people can understand that religion and acceptance of homosexuality can co- exist.
Himshikha
God, or known as Jehovah, has his own plans and has no one to report to. has no beginning and no end from when existed. could have been doing celestial or who knows what. the desire to have created could have came until when it did. when he decided to create it that was his desired time
Braulio
Seems like you're really confident about what you're talking about with your liberal use of the words "could have"

Anxiety and overthinking tend to be evil partners. One of the horrible hallmarks of any type of anxiety disorder is the tendency to overthink everything.

confidence level just doesn't increase on its own. first you have to accomplish something, anything big or small doesn't matter. after that your confidence increases, then try doing things that gives you fear, not everything together, in small parts.

it may take time but this confidence is alot more true than the confidence some people fake to hide their insecurity.
