Isn’t it one of the deadly games we play in Addis?

It has become pretty common to play a deadly game in Addis Ababa actually almost in the whole Ethiopia. Some of those are drinking and driving, unprotected sex with some one we never even met before and so on….But i am not talking about those issues today. My topic today is about something which also become one of the only options of fun we think we have in Addis Ababa. ”DRINKING ALCOHOL AND GETTING WASTED”

What does it do?

I think we all know that alcohol is a central nervous depressant which affects all body tissues and we still don’t mind having a sip or some more specially when we are at either on wedding parties or any parties we mostly have on weekends in Addis right?…:) Any ways, it’s not my intention now to write about that since it could be fun sometimes for some of us….ok my point is many people don’t recognize it when it gets out of hand and develop alcoholism and eventually showing unusual signs both physical and psychological which will cause losing life eventually.

By the way there are two obvious dependence to alcohol consumption. Ok so, one is Physical dependence and it is when there is a physical/biological need for alcohol to avoid physical withdrawal symptoms. The other one is when a person is psychological dependance which is expressed when a person is craving for the subjective effect of alcohol. Now that i said some things about alcohol…..

What are the risk factors of becoming an alcohol abuser?

  1. Biological predisposition
  2. Depression and highly anxious characterstics
  3. Low self-esteem
  4. Poor self-control
  5. History of rebelliousness, poor school performance, delinquency
  6. Poor parental relationships

What are some of the signs commonly seen in alcohol abusers?

  1. Missing work or school ( where ever he/she has duties)
  2. Drinking alone
  3. Increased tolerance to alcohol
  4. Arguments about drinking
  5. Careless physical appearance
  6. Creating/making excuses to drink
  7. Confusion
  8. Restlessness
  9. Denial that a problem exists
  10. Suspiciousness
  11. Depression
  12. Decrease in self – esteem
  13. Irritability
  14. Isolation
  15. Blood alcohol levels of 0.1% which is 100mg alcohol per deciliter of blood or higher

We all know there are consequences to all the unhealthy things we do in general but what are the complications of alcohol abuse and what can it cause to our body? With chronic alcohol use one can end up having:-

  1. Hepatitis; cirrhosis of liver
  2. Brain damage
  3. Esophagitis and gastritis
  4. Vitamin deficiencies
  5. Pancreatitis
  6. Immune system dysfunction
  7. Cardiac disorder and etc…

All of these things which could  lead to – DEATH!! So let’s evaluate where we are today and take action accordingly right now!!


On Love study: Heart Breaks

Falling in Love hurts, and it sometimes brings heartbreaks. It is very common that people say to friends and families that their heart is broken either when someone gets away or still around you. It is a very strange term but explains the extent of the pain a little bit. But yet we don’t see any physical injury anywhere in or on our body and still hard to explain.

New research finding that i read today written on medicalnewstoday tells  that when you reminisce about the one that got away, the brain actually triggers sensations that you also feel in times of “real” physical pain, making heartbreak truly, physically painful to add to the emotional distress it sometimes causes.

It says that heartbreak is like one big emotional pain but it also seems to spark off hundreds of other emotions. We hate the feeling of heartbreak, and yet we find ourselves compelled to go over and over memories, ideas or fantasies which make the feeling worse.

Later in the article it illustrates that forty people analyzed from New York City and all of whom felt “intensely rejected,” took part in the study. While participants were told to look at photos, including photos of their friends (they were directed to think positive thoughts about them), and photos of their exes (they were directed to think about their breakup), their brains were scanned for changes in activity. The participants also underwent brain scans as they felt pain on their forearms similar to the feeling of holding a hot cup of coffee in comparison. Several of the same areas of the brain became active when the participants felt either physical pain or emotional pain.

Can you believe it?

 


Self exam for tesitcular cancer?

Ok what made me write this today….observing another risk incident on some one who is almost like my younger brother . Did you observe that there is an increased number of risk factors to cancer which is existing in Ethiopia? As far as I’ve seen there is really an increase in risk factors among friends and family members as well as increased cancer victims in our society these days. It includes increased in dependence on canned food, in peptic ulcer disease, in smoking generation, chemicals etc…  One of these common cancer findings in the health sectors is testicular cancer. It occurs most often between ages of 15 and 40 and it could easily metastasize to the lung, liver, bone and adrenal glands.

How can we prevent this?

Well one of the prevention method is Routine testicular self-examination which any one can do at home any time.

How is it done?

  1. The best time to perform this examination is right after a shower when your scrotal skin is moist and relaxed, making the testicles easy to feel.
  2. Gently lift each testicle. Each one should feel like an egg, firm but not hard, and smooth with no lumps.
  3. Using both hands, place your middle fingers on the underside of each testicle and your thumbs on top.
  4. Gently roll the testicle between the thumb and fingers to feel for any lumps, swelling, or mass.
  5. If you notice any changes from one month to the next, consult a doctor.

That is all!!


Power cuts in Health

It’s amazing that i never thought of how power cut can also affect clinics, hospitals and the whole health care. I don’t want to mention the place but when i was walking in to the clinic there were too many patients lying and sitting waiting for examinations. Some for ultrasound some for lab tests. The receptionist was really mad when the patients were asking again and again if it will come back or if they have a generator or something wondering if they will go one more step in identifying what’s going on in their body….being eager for treatment after diagnosis. Some were leaving losing their patience and some kept wating. I wonder how i would feel if i were in their place…..waiting for power while in pain. Just imagine….

The health system is already hard enough to support all the people in need of health services but i hope sometime soon the new hydro-power project that was launched will solve this problem very soon
