As a 30 year old man suffering from Hypopituitarism which is an abnormal decrese in the activity of the pituitary gland. I have the most severe decrease of growth hormone which has caused dwarfism. The hardest symptoms growing up was seeing the difference in height and development compared to everyone else. Now I would say it is decreased libido and the loss of facial and body hair, this has made it hard to keep a relationship and going bald at 25 years old was very depressing and harmful for my image considering I have other body image issues to deal with. The current treatment I am on is hormone replacement of testosterone which is the hormone I am deprived of. I have been under constant monitoring and adjusting of hormone which has taken a toll on my whole body. The side effects that I have been experiencing from this treatment is mood swings, irritablity and depression. This is on going and it is very frustrating to deal with even though after so long I am seeing results but it is very hard for me to deal with on a daily basis. My questions for the doctor are more personal such as would seeing a psychologist help? What else should I do to try and make my symptoms better? Is it ever going to get better? Are there any other treatments or clinical trials? My advice for a patient who has been recently diagnosed with this is that be patient and stick to the treatment and just take it day by day your body is going through a lot and unfortunetely there are no known preventions or cures. This condition really has taken a lot of me emotionally I would love to be married and be happy and have a good life but I am in a constant battle with myself and this condition, I hope that by getting professional help I am able to learn how to cope with it and hopefully start building my life. I just take it day by day but it is exhausting.

This reflection should be about 1 page (typed/double-spaced) in length and will not require additional research outside of your book and/or lecture material, though you are welcome to add outside research if you wish. If you are using direct quotes from the book to make connections, remember to cite your book as a reference (any style is acceptable, just make sure to give credit where credit it due!). If you are using direct quotes from knowledge you have learned in class lectures, you do not need to cite.
Research shows that eyewitnesses allowed both to return to the scene of a crime and to recall all they can without prompts or questions from lawyers or police officers have more accurate memories of what happened.

The five stages of dying according to Kubler-Ross include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. With denial comes avoidance, confusion, shock and fear. Anger then brings frustration, irritation, and anxiety. Bargaining begins, you struggle to find meaning. People often reach out to others that have already gone through this to hear advice or their stories. Eventually depression takes over. You become overwhelmed, helpless and hostile. People often are close to giving up at this stage. Then comes acceptance – exploring options, new plan and moving on.
I believe someone who were to lose a family member would experience one if not all of these phases of emotions, as well as a close friend. In my opinion it affects people differently of different ages. A young child wouldn’t necessarily understand how to process all of these emotions. A teenager would emphasize the anger and add resentment, also not yet knowing how to process all of these emotions.
