    What do you know about abuse of women in LONOKE ARKANSAS ?

    Click the red escape button above to immediately leave this site if your abuser may see you reading it.

    Signs of abuse

    It can be hard to know if you´re being abused. You may think that your husband is allowed to make you have sex. That´s not true. Forced sex is rape, no matter who does it. You may think that cruel or threatening words are not abuse. They are. And sometimes emotional abuse is a sign that a person will become physically violent.

    Below is a list of possible signs of abuse. Some of these are illegal. All of them are wrong. You may be abused if your partner:

    • Monitors what you´re doing all the time
    • Unfairly accuses you of being unfaithful all the time
    • Prevents or discourages you from seeing friends or family
    • Prevents or discourages you from going to work or school
    • Gets very angry during and after drinking alcohol or using drugs
    • Controls how you spend your money
    • Controls your use of needed medicines
    • Decides things for you that you should be allowed to decide (like what to wear or eat)
    • Humiliates you in front of others
    • Destroys your property or things that you care about
    • Threatens to hurt you, the children, or pets
    • Hurts you (by hitting, beating, pushing, shoving, punching, slapping, kicking, or biting)
    • Uses (or threatens to use) a weapon against you
    • Forces you to have sex against your will
    • Controls your birth control or insists that you get pregnant
    • Blames you for his or her violent outbursts
    • Threatens to harm himself or herself when upset with you
    • Says things like, "If I can´t have you then no one can."

    If you think someone is abusing you, get help. Abuse can have serious physical and emotional effects. No one has the right to hurt you.

    Healthy vs. unhealthy relationships

    Sometimes a relationship might not be abusive, but it might have some serious problems that make it unhealthy. If you think you might be in an unhealthy relationship, you should be able to talk to your partner about your concerns. If you feel like you can´t talk to your partner, try talking to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor. Consider calling a confidential hotline to get the support you need and to explore next steps. If you´re afraid to end the relationship, call a hotline for help.

    Signs of an unhealthy relationship include:

    • Focusing all your energy on your partner
    • Dropping friends and family or activities you enjoy
    • Feeling pressured or controlled a lot
    • Having more bad times in the relationship than good
    • Feeling sad or scared when with your partner

    Signs of a healthy relationship include:

    • Having more good times in the relationship than bad
    • Having a life outside the relationship, with your own friends and activities
    • Making decisions together, with each partner compromising at times
    • Dealing with conflicts by talking honestly
    • Feeling comfortable and able to be yourself
    • Feeling able to take care of yourself
    • Feeling like your partner supports you

    If you feel confused about your relationship, a mental health professional can help. Remember, you deserve to be treated with respect.

HealthDay news image Organ transplants have saved more than two million years of life in the United States over a period of 25 years, new research shows.But fewer than half the people who needed a transplant in this period they received, according to a report in the online edition of the January 28 issue of the journalSurgery JAMA ."The critical shortage of donors continues to affect this field. Just 47.9 percent of patients on the waiting list during the 25 years of the study underwent a transplant. The need is increasing, and therefore the Organ donation should increase, "wrote Dr. Abbas Rana, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and colleagues. The researchers analyzed the medical records of more than 530,000 people receiving organ transplants between 1987 and 2012, and nearly 580,000 people who signed up for the waiting list but never received a transplant. In that period, transplants saved 2.2 million life years, with an average of just over four years saved for each person who received a transplant from a living body, the study authors noted in a news release from the journal . The number of years saved by type of organ transplant life were: kidney, 1.3 million years; liver, more than 460,000; heart, almost 270,000; lung, about 65,000: pancreas and kidney, nearly 80,000; pancreas, just under 15,000, and intestines, around 4,500. One expert noted the relevance of the findings. "This study highlights the importance of organ donation, and shows that solid organ transplants save lives. One organ donor can have an impact on up to 50 lives," said Dr. Kareem Abu-Elmagd, director of the Center for transplant at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. "The field of transplantation continues to seek ways to save more lives," said Abu-Elmagd. "For example, the program of ex vivo perfusion of organs of the Cleveland Clinic has been studying perfusion technology to better preserve organs donated." Powered by infusion, a machine pumps oxygen and nutrients to the donated enriched to prevent damage or deterioration of the body prior to transplant into a patient waiting, according to the Cleveland Clinic organ solution. Baylor researchers suggested a direct solution. "We call for greater support of transplantation and solid organ donation, valuable efforts have an impressive record of achievements and tremendous potential to do even more good for humanity in the future," concluded the authors.
