Is it possible that years of suppressing my appetite as a child have led to me not being ablt to detect hunger until I am ravenous (and thereby over eat?) and also because I was made to eat when I wasn't hungry, could it be that I have not 'full' signal, as I am able to eat until I feel very sick? I weigh my food to ensure there is no more than 400g bulk on my plate now, as this amount seems to suit me.

I banged my head yesterday, I still have a headache and it REALLY hurts there. Should I go to the doctors if it still hurts on Monday? I felt quite giddy yesterday.

Ds1 isn't very good at football, but we still go every Saturday because he likes it. How can I improve his coordination, speed and concentration? He's five and all the others (all five) seem to run rings round him - but he does enjoy going!

AIBU to ban all "screen games" bar 20 minutes a day? And then he only watches while I play (his choice)

1. yes
2. see how it is monday - if getting better then no
3. practice

yes, i should think it is very possible

yes, take paracetomal in the meantime and if you get dizzy again call NHS direct

Accept he may be bad at foot ball? let him practice lots and go for the enjoyment rather than skill factor

depends why you are limiting it so much, don;t think that is unreasonable

4 - the screen games thing is because it's ALL he talks about. A million and one things may happen in a day, but at bedtime all he talks about is Ratchett and Clank, Peggle, Mariocart etc.... so I've put the kybosh on it until he has a broader range of experience that he will talk about!!!

My sisters rabbits are called ratchet and clank


1 - yes
2 - keep an eye on your headache
3 - Both of mine are crapola at football but we go because they love it.
4 - 20 minutes seems aright. I have a timer for my boys, when it goes off, bam, game over, works really well for us.
