No doubt, it's trial and error with those meds. I hope they can find one that works for you. If not,  you can get better without them.  I did.  :highfive:

When I was in Rehab, one of the nurses said that there is a machine they use in Europe that can read your DNA and determine which meds will work with you so you don't have to do trial and error. I have been lucky because the majority of meds I have taken work great for me. :)

Ok I have a question. I am writing a blog, and I want to add pictures and stuff to it. What are the rules regarding using pictures, memes, gifs, etc that are found on the internet. Is there a copyright or can I use the stuff on my blog?


Thanks!

To be strictly legal, all images would need to be purchased or acquired from a free to use image bank.

That said, most people don't follow that rule....even large corporations.

To use an image you are supposed to get permission from the copyright holder, copyright is automatic when anyone creates something (picture, book, art, etc.).  The problem is this gets abused so much on the internet it's often very hard to know who that person is.  As Kete said there are banks of images the people have given their permission for anyone to use, royalty free.

There are various rules that fall under fair use, education, parody, etc.  That's a more tricky area to get into.

In reality so many people don't follow the rules and if there is no money being made violations get ignored.  Unless of course you use an image from a company that goes after people no matter what (cough,disney,cough).

So, I should just go ahead and use the images and wait and see if I get in trouble?

I'd say use the pictures. If the owner has a problem they will email you.

Might help to give credit where credit is due. Sometimes I post screenshots of interesting articles I find, but I always include a link to the original website.

We violate copyright law all the time on this forum.  All of the image threads are in violation, and anytime someone quotes an article or other written material, they are in violation.  While citing a source doesn't make it not a copyright violation, it may make you less of a dick (although some creators would still be completely upset about using their image at all, as is their right).

Also, be careful about what images you use, and try to understand their context.  Here are some examples why: http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/4-reasons-not-to-use-stolen-images-to-make-political-point/

I'm glad your meds have worked. :)  It is, unfortunately, trial and error for so many doctors to find just the right ones for people.

In the US, Dr. Amen's Clinic does SPECT scans, which show the areas of the brain that are functioning well, and those that aren't functioning so well, and has had great success with customizing treatment that way.  I had not heard of a DNA scan in use in Europe (since I'm retired from the field, I don't do as much research/learning about it as I used to).  While some difficulties show up in DNA, there are so many factors that feed into dysfunction (both 'nature' and 'nurture') that, personally, I think scanning the brain would be the more direct - and more accurate - route.

I feel like an idiot. I placed an order at Dominos and I couldn't find the giftcard I was going to use to pay for the order. I thought there was a chance they didn't give it back to me after my last pick up there and I called to ask if they had it up there. They didn't. They were totally cool about it and zeroed out the order even when I insisted I should still pay for the order anyway.

What the fuck is wrong with me? I let some shit affect me to the point where I can't even live my life and keep track of shit that has actual value. What the fuck is wrong with me?

Actually, my therapist has recommended that I do that. Any doctor can do the test, they just send the samples to the people who screen them.

In THOR, Odin says that Mjolnir has "no equal as a weapon to destroy or as a tool to build". In one of the Marvel movies I want to see Thor using Mjolnir to hammer in nails in a fence or something.

Speaking of hating Disney...
   There were some posts somewhere about Old Yeller dog food.  I was at the grocer's tonight, and saw the stuff.  And yeah, it has a prominent Disney logo right on the bag.  That's pretty shitty.  What next, effers?  Disney's line of Bambi brand hunting clothes?
