bikie gangs in aust
Posted: 12/3/2008 3:37:46 AM
NotWilted... Bikie collaborations may like to be called CLUBS now but they were gangs when I grew up... had Hells Angels on one side of the fence , Highway 61 locally and then smaller gangs who werent bike focused but now are like Black Power and the Mongrel Mob (president lived on the corner) and then came the Head Hunters ....yep I am a kiwi so well used to having neighbours and mates involved in gangs/clubs as they maybe now
In one of my former jobs I was constantly working with crims who happened to be bikies and in currently popular clubs ... but I do hear you on the its not all of them just some

What is the legal distance that a mother can shift away from the father - western australia -
Posted: 11/18/2008 12:33:09 AM
Shannon what you may not realise as another poster pointed out is that many men take off with the children denying the mother access to the children.
Like Bionic I have raised my kids and other ppls at times when they had no where to go by myself.
My ex husband doesnt bother with our kids ... not one birthday card christmas card or gift in 10 years, even when his eldest son had brain surgery he didnt ring the hospital to ask after him,... his new gf was way more important.
Mothers arent always evil or bad but there is often more to the situation than meets the eye same as the fathers arent always evil or bad.
At the end of the day its an emotional issue for all concerned and as adults we need to realise our relationship with the other parent has nothing to do with the kids and that a relationship should be nutured with the other parent if possible... if not an open door offer like Bionic ( which has been my method)

The Teacher/Student relationship
Posted: 11/9/2008 12:11:31 AM
There wouldn't have been a school nurse as they are rarely employed unless its a private school.
I am sorry your kid hurt himself but I do think stating someone calling your child weird as child abuse is OTT. I have to agree with other posters that kids need to learn about sticks and stones... but then your the one who is upset about the name calling not your son as he didnt hear her say it... so really its more of an afront to you to hear you gifted child called weird. Maybe ask yourself why you find it offensive that someone may see your child as weird?? As your child grows up you are going to hear a hell of a lot more than that said about him and you wont like everything you see or hear to do with your kid thats just life...

I wouldnt waste the energy on the teacher you have already made your mind up about her irrespective of what she based her views on and the fact she uttered the word has riled you up. But I would be challenging the school on their policy of leaving a child who is injured without adult supervision ( this happens in lots of places I have picked up on of my kids covered in blood before who wasnt supervised) write to the headmaster and ask him to clarify the policy so it doesnt happen again.
Hopefully your little man doesnt have anymore accidents

The conspiracy of the call centres...
Posted: 11/7/2008 11:35:37 PM
Heya Tweedle...

get on to www.broadbandchoice.com.au ( otherwise known as Whirlpool)
You can check out what service providers are in your area, what plans are on offer and what the ISP is like in the service forums. I recently did the battle of the ISP plans due to moving house and ended up with Westnet who have provided a brillant ADSL2+ service ... I cant get everyday ADSL or wireless according to Telstra yet the ppl next door have wireless... go figure lol.
When you get your new ISP look for an account that allows churning as you maybe eligable for this ( means less wait to get onto new ISP and lower fees) ,free or low cost set up fee, short (6mths) or no contract, good size on peak allowance ( I have 20 gig) with an equally good off peak allowance, shaping if over limit, peer to peer networking ( means free content) and weigh up the phone service inclusion.

Happy researching

Teenage males - are they out of control?
Posted: 11/2/2008 11:45:35 PM
There are laws restricting access to high powered vehicles in NSW... however they are floored because you can still drive a porsche as a P plater.

Driving education should be mandatory in high school from 12 mths before you can sit your learners permit then a number of mandatory professional lessons, subsidised if necessary, to get the kids on the road and before sitting their tests. There will always be kids who are susceptible to peer pressure though and go faster harder and riskier because it makes them feel cool.

Having said that I also think older drivers need to be tested regularly and if they cant or dont meet minimum requirements then its off the road until they can.

I have a 22 yr old who refuses to learn to drive and catches the bus everywhere because he says the world doesnt need another idiot on the road lol one day he will give in

Anti depressants. Help or hurt?
Posted: 10/18/2008 7:22:25 AM

A psychiatrist is someone who is a specialist in mental health but more importantly the MEDICATIONS used to treat them. There is no way a GP has the experience, training or knowledge to know how to best treat your problem. A GP is not aware of the newest drugs, the most common side effects OR which drug best suits your particular problems.


Ummm sorry this statement is wrong. GP's have as much knowledge on medications as specialists and are more than qualified to treat depression. Drug reps constantly provide updates and GP's attend on going training as part of their registration as a medical practitioner or even do post graduate study. GP's aren't medical students who graduate then go str8 to being a GP... they do 2 to 5 years in hospitals gaining skills in a number of areas including psychiatry.

Vege.. the programme you referred to is done via the GP. It is a national initiative called Better Access to Health which allows for 12 visits to a psychologist over a 12 mth period though Medicare are in the process of doubling that for those who need it. You can also access a physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, dietician and a few others on this programme but with fewer visits.

Guess there is always the herbal versions as well which need to be prescribed by a naturopath... So many choices of treatment so many things to try

Anti depressants. Help or hurt?
Posted: 10/18/2008 6:56:37 AM
Depends on the situation,, if its related to a situation thats causing you distress then trying counselling first maybe the best option, if this isnt working then contemplating additional treatment can be a good thing. Antidepressants help most ppl gain a moment of clarity where they can begin to deal with whatever caused them to tip over into depression.
Anti depressants take approximately 6 weeks to have an effect on the user but the family and friends usually notice some difference earlier than that. If there is an anxiety feature then this can resolve almost instantly. Like all medications there is always a side effects list and yes AD's have been implicated in worsening of symptoms, increase in suicidal ideation and suicide, aggression and other assorted things like sexual dysfunction, weight gain and loss and gastrointestinal upsets. The more serious the effect the rarer it is.
There are also 3 classes of AD's the most popular being SSRI's ( prozac etc). Its all about finding the right one for the person.
But before you try meds try increasing your exercise ( increases endorphins making you feel good) get some sunshine, plenty of sleep and if not counselling chat with a supportive understanding friend.

Wondering what sort of addicitions people have or know people who more then one addiction?
Posted: 10/13/2008 3:57:47 PM
Ciggerettes were and still are mine.. dont smoke now but took 4 goes to give up (didnt use any of the things available now to give up went cold turkey) and every now and then the smell of a ciggie will trigger off a craving :(

Hopster....
There are alot of ill informed over trained monkeys working in social services ( covering addiction, DADHC, DOCS, to name a few) learning to work with or around them is hard but can be done... there are also ex addicts working in addiction services who are bad at what they do as well but on the other hand there are some brillant ppl dedicated to empowering people to make changes (not forcing it or doing it for them) and advocating as much as humanely possible.
Social problems are on the increase sadly and the government is pulling funding out of services left right and centre.... government housing is becoming a thing of the past in some states, community services are being brokered out to non government services ( run by those ill informed do gooders)
Mental health services are a joke... dont ask for in patient treatment because your going to struggle to get it... I have a friend who rang every telephone help line she could think of in desperation one night ( Lifeline, Mental Health Intake and others) only to be continually put on hold or told to call back. She never did manage to get through to a service that night.

The current governtment has a surplus of $2.7 billion.... with half that there could be so much done

Pro Life or Pro choice?
Posted: 10/13/2008 4:04:35 AM
All the Pro Lifers... I ask this of you ... do you know how a child of rape feels as they grow older? do you understand the emotional impact on that child as they move into adulthood and want to have children themselves? the impact on the relationship between the mother and child? have any of you ever lived with a person who was the child of rape? Would you condemn a child to a life time of misery and assumed guilt and denial??

The reality is a fetus isn't viable before 26 weeks. Even given the maximum assistance in the NICU the chances are poor. Brain injury occurs in almost 100% of these neonates, their lungs dont work without bombarding them with chemicals and forcing them to breath. Most fetus born this preterm arent even sent to the NICU as they dont have a good chance.

As another poster pointed out contraception is a form of abortion ( the pill, IUD, implant, male pill, condoms and herbal and other natural methods)

At the end of the day if the social and emotional impact is too great for the woman to carry then her decision to terminate the pregnancy is hers. All the moral judgements in the world based on whatever code you like.. religious, personal is your choice but entirely inappropriate to be shared with the woman. For some women the choice is easy for others it is fraught with heart ache and guilt.
Anyone who is considering a termination for whatever reason should be given unconditional support to make the decision that is right for them at the time and not be told its a sin to have an abortion or wrong.... and for all the condemers I hope your not practicing ANY kind of contraception because every month your on the pill or an IUD you make your uterus a hostile environment into which fertilised eggs cant implant... but your eggs can still be fertilised making them into fetuses that never had a chance

As a health professional and midwife I have no issue with terminating a pregnancy that has a high risk for the woman or is going to result in profound disability and life long health defects for a child.

Posted: 9/11/2008 5:24:26 AM

hey rama , this is a long and drawn out fight getting my nephew out of the n.z. foster system and into my care . has taken 4 1/2 yrs but well worth the end result.


Hey Typical... thats really cool :) My uncle has raised his nephew ( through marriage) by himself when his ex wife refused to care for the boy after his parents were killed in a car accident ( she went weird) He brought the kid here from NZ and has had him ever since and believe me the women love him :)

A Change can do you Good ????
Posted: 9/6/2008 5:23:19 PM
Yep people can change but they have to want to. People with borderline personality disorders and personality disorders ( yes there is a difference) can change when they get to a point that they realise without change they cant go forward. This usually happens in their 30's and they will either succeed in retraining their behaviour or they wont but they will always have the BPD or PD.

Once we gain insight into our behaviours ( and not everyone will) we can change if we choose to but we must want to otherwise out changes wont be effective or permanent. And it does take practice and hard work to maintain a change.

Check out the Cycle of Motivation, (pre-contemplation, contemplation, determination, action, maintenance and relapse) its amazing how often we run thru these stages each day even over something so simple as procrastinating about doing the housework.

LOL you gotta live here where Iguanagate occured to know what the whole hulabaloo is.. most locals think the pair should be sacked, but there is an element of truth on both sides. Kevin can give her a warning because her alleged behaviour has brought Parliment and the party faithful into disrepute and thats a no no...

And just an aside... put a pic of Belinda Neal next to a photo of Martin Bryant... seperated at birth me thinks

When is it TOO late to have children??
Posted: 9/1/2008 10:31:28 PM
Well as a midwife I guess I look at it in a different way. Risk factors in some areas increase others arent as much of a problem. All of the serious issues I have seen in the last six mths have been under 30's bar one.
I came across a 46 yr old primip the other day and I can honestly say I have never seen someone so in love with the experience.
Milly you are at the average age for women having babies at the moment so its no big deal. If you want to have a baby spend a few mths getting in tip top shape ie: get onto folate or a pre pregnancy supplement and pick a suitable sperm donor lol
It can be harder to fall pregnant as you get older so it could be worth having your hormone levels checked and that gives you an idea will you need fertility drugs... having said that men produce poorer quality sperm as they get older and are less likely to impregnate a woman so perhaps a man around the same age or younger??

Anyway good luck if you go ahead with it

Alright then you lot, what is your cure for gastro??????


Weeellllllll lol
Lots of rehydration fluids so water tea clear broth. NO lemonade as the sugar increases dehydration by leeching more fluid from the intestines.
An old chinese Dr I know swears by rice cooked with grated carrot and a bit of home made chicken stock..

If you have gastro for more than a day or so get some Gatorade or Gastrolyte ( if you can stand the taste) and there are some over the counter medications which help. Its important to keep your fluids up as dehydration isnt good for you and the electrolyte imbalance can cause all kinds of problems.

Another wonderful Australian lost to Suicide
Posted: 8/30/2008 10:32:23 AM
Its sad to hear United I stand's story but the fact is ALOT of mental health disorders share features.
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has a depression trait which often "features" significantly and tends to get diagnosed as this is the presenting phenomena when a person presents. Not all people want to disclose they have had traumatic events so just talk about the "now" , so whatelse can a clinician diagnose but on the symptoms offered?
People who experience significant trauma be it sexual, violence or emotional, are all at risk of PTSD even years down the track when memories are triggered if they havent dealt with the trauma completely, and this can take years and repeated times back in counselling. It is not uncommon to experience depression and psychotic episodes as part of PTSD, and not ALL people will develop PTSD.

Medication is not meant to cure depression. It is meant to lift seretonin levels to alleviate the mood. In those whose brain chemistry is out of whack causing depression ( a small number) medication will work even better. Without counselling or group therapy not alot will change. The only fast response to medication is relief from anxiety ( often a co feature of depression) otherwise your looking at up to 6 weeks before medication kicks in.

But having said all that, exercise, chocolate, sex, sunshine and being kind to yourself are all things that can lift a depressed mood. So if your mood is low try going for a walk in the sunshine and take a bit of chocolate and a good mag or book with you and relax, maybe reflect on what has brought you down and see if you can work a solution, if not just relax in the sunlight and enjoy.
And to the poster who said he had no one to chat to when he was depressed... there is always someone. Contact your GP, Mental Health intake line, Lifeline, BeyondBlue website or other websites that deal with depression. If you have a friend you can talk to ... do it ...or a family member, even come on the forum and yell help there is always someone around here.

I prefer aboriginal history sorry.. not your version...


Tutt tutt HLV... rather inflammatory of you towards your host nation. History is made up of good and bad events. The aboriginal and white/multicultural histories of Australia exist as seperate and blended entities as they weave together the story of the land.
The Don did bring smiles to alot of ppl NZ included when he was part of a team that trounced the pommies at a game they considered their own. Your neighbour is just one man and the way he uses malarki .. (charming word given its translation) is he of greek origin?

Whether you agree he is a legend, a hero or just a man is irrespective, he did what he did and in true Australian fashion tall poppy syndrome strikes again where a "legend of the sporting type" this time is now being pulled down.
Gee isnt this just history repeating itself..clearly its not ok for someone to excel at anything because at some point someone is going to disagree that their achievements were important to the nation or the people.
I cant stand cricket it has a yawn factor of 100 for me but I admire anyone who is willing to get off their bums and give it a go and if they do well ... well good on them. I dont agree sportsmen are hero's and believe that they shouldnt be referred to as such but the media is a world unto its own

Now all I have to hope is the Kiwi's win the Tri Nations and the Bleddisloe cup lol

Saiun..

They were sincere. Depression has alot to do with Seretonin is impossible to "help" someone overcome a debilitating disorder like this in the short term. It takes counselling and in some cases medication to help resolve the symptoms so the underlying cause can be dealt with. In extreme cases hospitilisation. Depression is a silent killer, you can put a face on for the masses and on the inside be screaming out. On the surface life can look good to the observer. As to this guy.. things must have been pretty hopeless for him and he saw this as the only way to end the torment he felt. Its important to ask family and friends how things are with them and be supportive as needed.

and like MSG 1 says Beyondblue.com.au is a good resource or Reachout.com.au if your 18 to 24 and prefer a slightly different angle or google Headspace ( new youth mental health that services up to 24 year olds) and your GP.

Take care of your mental health and be mindful of those around you

Should parents be penalised for the behaviour of their children?
Posted: 8/28/2008 1:12:36 AM

^^ and while working parents are having to pay through the nose for child care or babysitters. How can someone who isnt working need childcare????? Arent they being paid already to care for the child? And what on earth are they doing that they cant have their children with them?


WOW thats an arrogant posting!
The children are socialising with other children gaining valuble skills in communication, neogitiation, sharing, motor skills both fine and gross and other things they need to survive in this world. For all you know these parents could have mental or physical disabilities, they may volunteer at their other kids schools as parent helpers, they may just need time out.
Since when has it been a sin for a woman to have her kids spend some time in childcare ( which used to be called Kindergarten)? Is it only the wealthy and working women who deserve to have their children exposed to different environments?

Children shouldnt be punished because their parents are on welfare and unable to fit in to mainstream society for whatever reason.. maybe the families in some of these examples are illiterate or socially inept, poorly skilled, or just so beaten down by their situation they just give in and accept it? No work skills, license, OHS cards gee the list goes on! Yes there is a small minority of people who breed for welfare purposes but FFS $5000 isnt gonna go far is it? The pension doesnt cover rent in the private sector.. and public housing lists are long ( min 7 to 10 years) and there is no inheritence of tenancy anymore so you cant get mum and dads DOH house. There are lots of reasons these families do as they do... maybe instead of judging them looking at ways of improving the system so their kids get better role models and opportunities to get somewhere in life might be a starting point.

Ignore the advice not to take anything for your fever esp if it gets over 38.5. It is quite dangerous to have a high temperature.
I use Natures Way Garlic, Fenugreek, Marshmellow and Vit C tabs for the whole snotty nose thing works brillantly as well as Vicks First Defence.

Just remember if your coughing up green shite and have infected sinuses you may need Antibiotics and Pneumonia and Bronchitis is rife this year with alot of colds and flu going this path so dont forget a medical check up if things dont get better in a few days :)

funny stuff yourkids come up with
Posted: 8/27/2008 4:47:53 AM
My eldest as a 3 yr old was in a shop similar to David Jones with Grandma queued up to buy tickets for a pantomime. Along comes the shop window dresser who strips off a store model and places the hair on the ground next to the dummy and walks away to get clothes. B walks over to the dummy looks it up and down, circles it still looking it up and down, looks at the wig on the floor then looks at the dummy's front and asks rather loudly... "Grandma why doesnt she have hair down there" as he points at the dummy's groin. My mother of course erupts in giggles and cant answer ... thank god for the retired school teacher who walked over and coaxed him away while mother dearest got herself together!

Missfeel you had ya fingers burnt before?
Whats wrong with generosity of self and spirit? I am happy for either party to pick up the bill doesnt really matter as long as its done respectfully and not in the spirit of "he can pay he is the man" ... those days are gone when women dont work anymore and have no income though if you ask someone on a low income out you wouldnt expect them to pay for the meal. I know my friends and I always share costs one picks up the meal the other the coffees etc and the same on dates.. if I pay for the meal then he should pay for drinks and vice versa but its all personal .. if you ask someone out and they say I would love to but cant afford it would you say o well another time then or would you say dont be silly you buy the bottle of wine I'll shout dinner this time??

Chiny... thats FEMInazi

and ALL families receive some form of assistance be it family tax benefit part A or part B.
There is a small number of families who dont ( income over 121K) so it affects all families, though I have to admit it looks like Old Duddles and the Feminazi are on the warpath trying to eliminate the ferals, bogans and welfare bludgers to make the country clean and perky bright

Just sounds like another government war on something ... this time families. Rudd promised a family friendly government --he just happened to mumble the caveat that you needed to be a perfect family to benefit under his rule.

Should benefits be taken? no not at all thats a stupid and dangerous thing to do. As stated by other posters families depend on these benefits to survive.. taking it well lets see how many child deaths we have then or homeless kids.
Kids wag school for loads of reasons how about good old Kev spends some money working out the why and introducing programmes to reengage kids in school?

GOD has a point in that childless behaviourists and sociologist make up the rules for parenting these days. Research shows that some ( not ALL) children are negatively impacted on by what is perceived as parental violence. Not all parents stop at a short sharp tap on the bum or hand. Children raised in households where deprevation is the norm and punishment is physical often dont do well socially or mentally and end up being diagnosed with conduct disorder ( if they are lucky enough to see someone) or get into trouble with the police from early on. How can a child respect a parent who cant talk to them, negotiate, forgive, and love unconditionally to teach them a better way of living? I know I wouldnt have respect for a parent who believed physical punishment is the answer. But equally I cant stand parents whose little darlings run amuck undisciplined.

Should parents pay for their childrens offences? Depends on the offence in some respects... personally I think the crime should fit the punishment ie: Grafitti.... kid cleans off wall under supervision and if old enough repaints wall, second offence.... community justice panel, clean off wall etc... and also add in some Youth Worker support or programmes where the kid can put his "talent" to use in a positive way. and the Parent should be sent off to do some work on their parenting skills or the issues impacting on their ability to provide a good role model. Gaol is just a waste of time and costs the taxpayer way to much to countenance sending a parent there because of a childs offence.


And before I get shot yes I have kids and hardly ever smacked them as toddlers and they are now way to tall to slap unless I stand on a box or chair lol I just hide the PC and XBOX cables as punishment ~evil parent grin~
