Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (MFS) Diagnosis

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an extremely serious, long-term condition that affects numerous body systems. Individuals with ME/Cfs are often unable to perform most physical activities. Activities of daily living, including work, school and social activities, are often severely limited or altered due to the inability to cope with symptoms. In some cases, ME/Cfs may even require special equipment, such as wheelchairs, for mobility. This article details ME/Cfs and discusses some of the causes, symptoms and treatments of this debilitating condition.


ME/Cfs is believed to be triggered by the release of excessive amounts of cytokines by the immune system. These” cytokines” are part of what is known as the “ergy response”. An excess of these inflammatory chemicals may be the cause of one of two different types of chronic conditions – infectious mononucleosis and Candida (yeast infections). Research has shown that the buildup of these chemicals within the body can result in a number of physical symptoms, such as extreme fatigue, muscle pain, joint pain, fatigue and depression.

ME/Cfs often begins during post-exertional malaise, or after strenuous activity or exercise. Common symptoms include extreme exhaustion, muscle and joint pain, fever, and chills. A number of researchers and physicians believe that a combination of these symptoms is used to identify ME/Cfs, as they share many similar characteristics with other illnesses such as cancer and the flu. Some researchers theorize that the body’s natural defenses are ineffective in combating the infection, leading to a prolonged exposure which triggers chronic fatigue.

Research has shown that many people with ME/Cfs have certain immune system abnormalities, suggesting the possibility of a neurological disorder. ME/Cfs typically begins when the body’s white blood cells (panleukopenia) are unable to fight off a virus or bacteria that invade the body. Since these cells normally attack viruses and bacteria before they cause serious problems, the onset of ME/Cfs suggests an abnormal response that can then trigger other symptoms. For example, if the ME/Cfs’ symptoms last for several days or weeks, they may be related to another condition that requires medical attention.

Since ME/Cfs usually begin during or just after peak activity levels, researchers believe that it is important to get better acquainted with patients before they determine whether or not they have this illness. Common signs and symptoms may include frequent urination, the inability to focus or concentrate, headaches, muscle and joint pain, sleepiness, depression, dizziness, memory loss, feelings of guilt and emotional upheaval, irritability, difficulty concentrating, nausea and vomiting. If you are experiencing at least four of these symptoms, you should seriously consider getting a full physical examination. If you do not get a conclusive diagnosis from a physician in a timely manner, you may still be misdiagnosed with another illness, resulting in a significant waste of time and money. Likewise, if you are able to properly diagnose ME/Cfs, you can then use various treatment options to help improve the quality of your life.

In addition to the above-mentioned symptoms, ME/Cfs patients may also have orthostatic intolerance, post-exertional malaise, due to the ongoing suppression of the immune system triggers that occur just prior to bedtime, low energy levels that cause fatigue, and sleep problems caused by disrupted sleep cycles. This list of symptoms can also be used to help determine when ME/Cfs is actually present and in what form it manifests itself. For example, post-exertional malaise occurs immediately after exertion, which means it could indicate a relapse of ME/Cfs, while chronic fatigue syndrome can manifest itself as long periods of poor sleep lasting several days or weeks, indicating a more severe case of ME/Cfs.

Avoiding the Pitfalls of the Love Language

Love Is All Around Us. It is all around us, but we need to find our way to love in all the right ways. Love encompasses a wide range of positive and deep emotional and psychological states, from our strongest personal virtue to the easiest recreational pleasure, the best imaginable relationship, to the deepest emotional bonding. There are so many ways that love can make us happy and help us grow individually and as a community.


But love also includes some negative emotions that can drain our resources and cause great pain to others. When love is persistent and enduring, it creates positive emotions like joy, satisfaction, contentment, and calmness. These feelings are the result of our continuing to love and nurture others. However, when love is lacking or is not well grounded, our experience of these positive emotions may be fleeting, with frustration building up as we strive to improve the relationship. Our self-esteem can also be damaged by having relationships that are less than loving and nurturing.

Some of the negative effects of romantic love on the other person include an increased sense of isolation, rejection, stress, anxiety, loneliness, and fear. These negative feelings create distance between two people, and distance breeds contempt and jealousy. These effects can actually destroy relationships instead of creating them.

When you are in a committed relationship, you should pay attention to how you feel about your partner. Does your partner to show you that they care for you? Does your partner listen to you and take time to get to know you? These are all outward signs of caring and nurturing. However, within some of these areas, you may find hidden meanings. When you pay attention to your feelings, you will notice some of these subtle messages and you will be able to translate them for your partner to better understand what is happening.

One of the most common pitfalls with the romantic love language is not expressing love fully. In fact, there are many people who spend too much time together and talk to each other only to have sex. This is not the way to express love! You should spend quality time together doing things that make you happy. You should also find time in your day to do things together like going for a walk or going for dinner.

Romantic love means being able to let go of those base emotions of lust and desire. It also means being open and honest with your partner about your own feelings. You need to be vulnerable and honest when you are sharing your feelings with another person. You may not be ready to do this yet, but if you ever are, you will be surprised at just how strong your partner’s feelings can be for you. They may surprise you even more than you can imagine.

Effective Tips For Social Work Professionals

What do you need to achieve success? A goal is something that is desired for an individual to have a satisfactory life. Goals are distinguished from desires. In the case of desires, a lack of a goal results in a clear negative outcome: loss or a malfunction. A goal however, will usually require one to work towards it through various means. The attainment of goals may mean giving up some pleasures and even leading a solitary life for awhile.


The first thing that a person has to do if he wants to achieve success is to identify his basic needs. These need may be compared to human needs as they relate to basic survival. Human needs include energy, water, air, food and some other elements. In order to survive, these needs must be met on a daily basis. This way, according to a popular scientific definition, humans live in a survival-of – survival mode.

It is important however to understand that there are some basic needs that are inherent in every person’s body. These needs however cannot be fulfilled unless some other conditions are met. In addition, some of these needs can be fulfilled through means other than natural means such as technological advancements. For example, air transportation may be a good way of meeting air-conditioning needs but it would not be possible without fuel.

Another aspect of human needs is the motivation. Motivation is a term which has a wide range of meaning and is applicable to a variety of activities. In order to excel in any endeavor, it is crucial to develop and utilize your personal Gough.

A Gough is defined as a set of psychological principles used to assess the strength and importance of human needs. According to these principles, the strong willed or “doer” person is more able to complete tasks than the weak dealer or “inker.” Achieving any goal therefore requires adequate motivation from the dealer or “inker.” To be successful in social work, you must learn to apply the principles of moral theory and apply them to your everyday life.

The Gough theory is also a key concept in social work. For example, in social work theory, the emotional intelligence of a person determines his success and happiness in any undertaking. Thus, you need to be a person who can manage both your body and mind in order to be successful socially. The human mind is a powerful tool, but only a person with great social skills can use this tool to his advantage.

How to Make the Most of Your PhD Phds (3rd Edition)

So many people have asked me this question, so I thought I would write an article to try and address it. In my experience there are three main reasons why people want to label themselves. The first one is they are going through a change, perhaps in their mind or in their environment or both. The second reason is when you start asking yourself questions like, “who is this person” or “what does this person look like” or even “where is this person” this triggers you to look for that label.

The third reason I hear from interviewees is they want to identify themselves as being more than “just a pretty face”. Perhaps they are feeling passionate about an area they are passionate about and would like to convey this passion to employers. Perhaps they are really passionate about building an online business. Maybe they are passionate about starting a family. The point I am trying to make is if you don’t want to be judged, why are you doing the job anyway?

The most common interview question employers might ask questions like these: “Why are you passionate about [fill in the blank]?” or “What do you think your strengths are?” The problem with these questions is that often what the interviewer is looking for is a list of your strengths, and not the kind of passion you are showing towards your work. Indeed many people forget that in order to have real passion you need to do work in your spare time.

My challenge is for you as a PhD candidate who has done the hard work, to take the initiative to do more than complete a doctorate program. Take this initiative now and get involved in a local NGO, human rights organization, volunteer organization, even a political party or a business. Wherever you choose to spend your time, make sure you take the initiative to raise awareness about your Ph.D. and your work. The more you participate, the more you will learn and the more likely you will become credible.

What do you do with your degree? The truth is that most Ph.D. candidates do not find employment within academia. Yet even then there are many ways to apply your knowledge to the workplace. You can start working in an administration or HR department and focus on improving the efficiency of that department. You can also consider working as a manager at a startup, consulting firm, or investment firm.

In all honesty I never knew that there were so many opportunities available for PhDs. If you are feeling discouraged that you can’t get a job in academia then this is why. The world looks upon those with PhDs with reverence, respect, and not derision. What you are doing with your PhDs should be to use that recognition to not only further your professional development, but to go out and fulfill your dreams, and goals.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – What is ME?

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a debilitating, long-term illness that affects many body systems. Those with ME/CF experience intense and lasting feelings of fatigue. At times, ME/CF can restrict them to bed all day. The causes for this debilitating disease are still unknown, but many health professionals believe it is caused by a shortage of the nerves that deliver messages from the brain to the rest of the body.

If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should see your doctor. He or she will perform tests to determine if there are any underlying physical problems causing the symptoms. Often times, ME/CF is misdiagnosed because people confuse the symptoms for other illnesses. However, if someone has gotten better, they might still have chronic fatigue syndrome, which means they need to get treated.

Some of the more common ME symptoms include depression, anxiety, irritability, difficulty concentrating and insomnia. Other less common issues include gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, headaches, constipation, vomiting and nausea, loss of appetite, muscle pain and tingling in arms and legs, severe sweating in the face and feet, muscle weakness, urinary frequency and increased urination. If you have ongoing feelings of depression and anxiety, or if you are constantly fatigued, you probably have ME. Other physical symptoms include joint pain, swelling and stiffness, difficulty getting around and cramping, problems with digestion such as constipation, heartburn and acid reflux, dizziness and lightheadedness.

The most commonly reported physical symptom is pain in the muscles and joints of the body, especially in the lower back and the abdomen. Other symptoms include severe muscle aches, numbness and tingling in the arms and legs, headaches, urinary frequency and increased urination. Some sufferers also report having mood swings, lack of concentration, difficulty sleeping and depression. Chronic fatigue is usually the main symptom, whereas other less common types of ME include migraine headaches, aching muscles and joints, unexplained fever, lack of appetite and skin rash.

Treatment for ME varies from person to person, although most doctors use anti-inflammatory drugs, since it is the underlying cause of the illness, to help patients get better quicker. In more severe cases, doctors may prescribe a course of antibiotics to fight off the illness and to treat the symptoms. If someone thinks they have chronic fatigue syndrome, it is important to visit a doctor to get diagnosed properly. Only when the illness is properly diagnosed, can treatment be found that will get better patient’s lives back on track.

As of now, there really isn’t any way to test for ME. Doctors cannot test for the illness using blood tests or through ear pinning. A health professional who suspects that a person may have ME should see a physician for a proper diagnosis. I am usually treated with a course of anti inflammatory drugs, which are usually in the form of steroids. The doctor may also prescribe some form of a cognitive enhancing medication to help patients cope with the symptoms of ME.

Understanding Love-Doing – A Lesson in Love Coaching


Understanding Love-Doing – A Lesson in Love Coaching

Love is a broad collection of human behaviors and emotions characterized by passion, intimacy, commitment, and emotional care. It often involves reciprocity, proximity, trust, attraction, compassion, and joy. Generally, love is related with a wide range of positive emotional states, such as happiness, enthusiasm, creativity, vitality, hope, achievement, vitality, novelty, spontaneity, creativity, empathy, acceptance, and peace, but it can equally experience negativity, such as depression, self-pity, resentment, stress, sadness, guilt, distance, lack of intimacy and affection, anger, boredom, resentment, hostility, confusion, uncertainty, sarcasm, blame, fear, worry, isolation, incompetence, oversensitivity, forgetfulness, ambivalence, jealousy, envy, uncertainty, lack of self-esteem, worry, and stress. Overall, love is described as a powerful force that causes us to feel good about ourselves and others. It causes us to have faith in our power to be present in difficult times, to seek meaning and purpose in the lives of others, to take risks, to reach our potential, to cultivate creativity, to be a good and satisfying person, to be self-giving and faithful, to be responsive and loving, to share pain and pleasure, to see the beauty in other people’s lives, to feel connected and blessed, to have realistic expectations, to be aware of the needs and feelings of others, to cultivate and nurture creativity, to experience authentic romance and love, to be creative and playful, to accept and open-minded, to set dreams and goals, to take risks, to value and admire beauty, and to have a sense of humor.

The experience love is the key to feeling emotionally secure and capable of loving another person fully and generously. Love can affect any human emotion and change as the individual experiences different situations and emotions. Love can include being compassionate, kind, confident, committed, honoring, loving, confident, socially competent, self-confident, forgiving, perceptive, mutually supportive, optimistic, truthful, reliable, responsible, open, accepting, motivated, responsive, pleasant, forgiving, sympathetic, positive, relaxed, safe, secure, sympathetic, responsive, present, playful, spontaneous, relaxed, secure, touchable, mutually supportive, spontaneous, joyous, spontaneous, thoughtful, intelligent, stable, thoughtful, tender, present, giving, open, giving affection, affectionate, present with no strings attached, nurturing, non-judgmental, present without expecting repayment, self-giving, non-critical, accepting, giving without expecting anything in return, accepting and giving with no strings attached, sharing without expecting anything in return, showing love and giving love to someone else, showing love and giving affection to yourself, without expecting anything in return.

Loving is not lust; it is the desire to give that arises from a deep personal or relationship with another person. It can also be the unfulfilled yearnings for love, belongingness, security, order, stability, an absence of loneliness, an absence of dissatisfaction, an absence of conflict, the awareness of a commonality shared values, or a sense of oneness shared feelings. A lover or spouse, whatever your sexual orientation is, you can be in love or in lust. In either situation, feelings of love, the very basis for any relationship, exist.

Some couples go through the motions of falling in love more quickly than others do. When two people in loving relationships decide to make their relationship “official,” the lust for each other usually takes control of their relationships. They usually hope that the sexual attraction that was once there will be replaced by the deeper emotional attachment, which is a kind of magnetic force, attracting the other person’s presence. Relationships that experience this kind of dynamic are not sustainable, since the desires for each partner to be loved and to be desired are usually not fulfilled.

For most people who have not found a way of expressing their feelings, their brains send a message to the body: “I need you. I need your love.” But in this competitive society where there is so much competition, there are other impulses in the brain that can override the intuitive “feel like” signals sent by the brain. Instead of sending a “feel like” message, however, the message may be “I want you” or “I need you.”

If one or both partners in a loving relationship are not meeting each other’s needs, the absence of desire may lead to feelings of emptiness that can be the beginning of affairs. It is possible, of course, that feelings of familiarity with the other person lead to falling in love or a deeper commitment, but unless those feelings of intimacy are sustained by fulfilling real relationships, the feelings will fizzle out and the affair will continue. The same dynamic could occur if the couple does not realize the depth of their connection until it is too late. So, one of the most important lessons to learn about loving relationships is that love does not just “fall out of the sky,” but needs to be cultivated, nurtured, given away and then kept alive throughout the years of a relationship.

What Is a Long-Term Strategy?


What Is a Long-Term Strategy?

A need is something that is required for an organism to survive. Needs are different from desires. In the case of desires, a lack of something causes an obvious harmful outcome: a defect or premature death. On the other hand, a need requires a more complex analysis because it is not quite clear what is meant by “a need.”

People’s perspectives about healthcare issues differ because they have different understandings of what they mean by ‘a need.’ To a physician, a need could be a serious problem and require immediate attention. For a layperson, however, healthcare issues are usually treated on a case-by-case basis. It is important to be fully aware of what your healthcare needs are so that you can make informed decisions about your treatment. The following paragraphs describe some of the more common concepts in healthcare.

A healthcare need is ‘a need’ when the body doesn’t have the resources (means) to provide or attain what the person needs, even at a minimal cost. This concept is the foundation of the ‘HHS’ or Health Services Assessment. The primary objective of a healthcare needs assessment is to provide a ‘needs assessment,’ which refers to a comprehensive listing of all known health services that people need or would require, and the means by which they can acquire them. This is considered the first step in designing a health care plan.

In most cases, once the needs assessment has been completed, the resulting list is used to develop a long-term strategy to ensure that people get the healthcare services that they need and at reasonable costs. However, since the methods used in the needs assessment are not entirely accurate, it is sometimes necessary to revise these health care needs assessments on an ongoing basis. This is why there are professional organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Association of Retired Persons, and the American College of Rheumatology that provide support for health care needs assessments.

What is meant by a long-term strategy is not just a series of short-term solutions, but a system-wide approach that ensure that the needs of those living in a community are properly met through a comprehensive health care plan. This approach is implemented through the use of health care professionals, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical personnel, community organizations, employers, and government officials. All parties involved in health care have an interest in seeing that all health care needs are satisfied, through a coordinated and comprehensive health care plan. This is why it is especially important to use the services of a health care provider who can conduct health needs assessments, when needed. These professionals have the necessary experience and training to make sure that a health needs assessment is conducted and provide the results needed in developing a plan of action. They can look into your health history and determine the health service and other resources that you need in order to meet your current and future needs.

The health services of these professionals should include access to a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals, including specialists, nurses, physicians, and other licensed healthcare providers, and the support they need to implement and maintain a coordinated health services delivery system. When you work with the health professionals conducting a needs assessment, make sure you fully understand their role. You may be at a point in your life where you need help determining what your basic health needs are and how you can meet them. In these times of increasing costs of health care and limited resources, it is important to invest in your health and the health services you need to keep you healthy. It is never too early to start planning for the future.

New Song by John Entwistle

The use of “you” in an imperative sentence is quite common. You see it all the time in television commercials. It is used very often as a polite way to ask someone for their assistance. The good I’m fine, thank you is nice to use if you do not want to actively pursue the interaction. For example, if you are in a store and a cashier at the checkout counter asks you for your assistance, you could simply give that answer as a polite gesture.


However, its definitely a conversational stopper, unless you know someone who is black or Latino who is doing the asking. This is why knowing the race or ethnic background of the other person can be very useful to break the ice. If you know someone who is of a different race from you but also of a different cultural background from you, it can be very helpful to know how they might be offended by something you have said or done. Especially if you have already started a conversation with another person who may be of a different race than you, the subtle racial comment could easily get lost in the heat of the moment and never be heard again.

“You are such a talented singer” is a phrase you hear a lot in the music of today. I wonder what artists of tomorrow will think of the phrase “You are such a talented singer”. I bet some of them will be using it in their lyrics. It conveys that you have a great sense of songwriting. However, I don’t really know John Entwistle’s view on this issue. I’m only guessing.

In his new song “Your Honor”, John Entwistle seems to take his ideas a bit more in depth. Instead of just saying you are a talented singer, he takes the reader into a private meditation with some enlightening comments. He even tells us his belief that music must change. In an age where most music is pretty much carbon copy, he states, “I’m fed up of hearing the same old things.” And he gives an alternative view of what music must change to be more interesting.

As a writer, John Entwistle must be trying to get people to pay more attention to him and listen to his music. After all, the last few records that I heard him on were very forgettable and the subject matter did not captivate me. But then, maybe he needs to be more creative with his lyrics if he wants to make an impact. “You are such a talented singer / You have the gift of imagination…” Perhaps listeners of new song by daltrey lead vocals will be more enthralled with this collection because of all the deep and meaningful lyrics.

In summary, I liked this collection more than previous ones by daltrey and bundrick. The stories and quality of writing are high standard and worth your money. This collection contains songs about love, moving, and insecurity that will stick in your head. Overall, this is a must-read for all music lovers.

Criteria For Diagnosing ME


Criteria For Diagnosing ME

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) has been described as a very long term illness with a wide spectrum of symptoms. The most frequent symptom is extremely tiredness. CFS is sometimes referred to as ME, which just stands for myalgia encephalomyelopathy. Many patients also refer to this condition as CFS/ ME.

This condition can become a major burden to a person’s life if not diagnosed properly. ME is usually diagnosed through a physical examination and a medical history of symptoms such as sleep deprivation, pain, and muscle weakness. A doctor will look at the patient’s medical history, perform a physical examination and do laboratory tests to make a diagnosis.

Once diagnosed, the proper course of treatment will be recommended by the doctor. Treatment can involve anything from lifestyle changes to medication to surgery. The important thing to remember is that once ME is diagnosed, it cannot be cured. People with ME must learn to deal with their condition, or they will eventually suffer from serious health problems that can include disability or death.

There are many international criteria used to diagnose ME. However, the most widely accepted criterion for the disease is the criteria of the International Association for Systematic Therapy (IASS). The list of these criteria can be found in the second edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Research on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (DSM-2).

Unfortunately, ME does not have a standard laboratory test to determine the illness. There is not a cure for ME. However, there are several different types of treatments that can help to control some of the symptoms of the disease. It is important to understand the symptoms of ME and to learn to cope with them. This is the only way to ensure that your life is as normal as it can be for someone who has ME.

The second most common syndrome associated with ME is cognitive dysfunction. People with ME often exhibit poor judgment and poor impulse control. They may suffer from problems such as: poor concentration, inability to focus, inability to organize, difficulty remembering things, difficulty completing tasks, and excessive fatigue. People with ME also tend to have more physical complaints such as: lower bone density, loss of muscle strength, muscular weakness, and a lack of muscle flexibility.

The other two main criteria related to ME are fatigue and immobility. Someone who is experiencing fatigue needs to be evaluated for a more serious condition such as chronic fatigue syndrome. The other criteria required to diagnose ME include the existence of at least four of the following symptoms: persistent fatigue lasting for more than six months, recurrent tiredness that disrupting day to day activities, a loss of balance, and a decreased ability to perceive or provide a definition of reality. The most important thing is to recognize that anyone can experience any of the symptoms of ME. That’s why it’s important to get a proper diagnosis as soon as possible.

If someone thinks they have ME, you can ask them to do a battery of tests to determine their specific diagnosis. If further diagnostic testing isn’t possible, anemia, calcium deficiency, thyroid dysfunction, hypothyroidism, and vitamin D deficiency can be ruled out. Those three can also be associated with another illness, so it’s important to get a confirmation from the doctor. Once an ME patient is diagnosed, they can receive additional support. They may be referred to a nutritionist or assigned a physical therapist to help them practice coping skills, improve their fitness level, and develop a personalized exercise and diet plan. Although ME isn’t a life threatening disease, people with ME need to realize that it can be controlled and overcome.

Love and Relationships – Are Physical Attraction Enough?


Love and Relationships – Are Physical Attraction Enough?

We have all felt love at some time in our lives. We have loved (and received love from) family members, siblings, friends, pets, even just strangers. However, unique romantic love differs from any of those other types of love in a number of ways. It is an intense, uncommon sense of love unlike any of the others we know. Here are a few ways it differs from other types of love.

First, unlike familiarity, there is no constant state of love between two people. There is always the potential for love, but it exists in moments, not in moments. This makes it hard for us to fully understand the depth of romantic love because the concept seems to stem from the idea that one person fully understands the love of another. When we experience a full and complete love from another person, they completely understand what we feel and this creates a relationship with each other that is totally different than any other relationship we have had.

Next, unlike familiarity, there is no understanding or feeling of connection in our relationships. This is because we do not connect with one another on a fundamental level. Instead, we connect to our partners on a superficial level-based on the physical pleasure and sexual satisfaction generated by intimacy. This shallow connection is what makes the experience of love so wonderful and intense. Because of this, when love is experienced, it is often because the individual has had physical pleasure and/or sexual satisfaction, rather than because they fully understand what love feels like on a deeper level.

Lastly, we do not have a language (emotional or otherwise) with which to speak about our experiences. Rather, we experience our emotions and feelings as separate entities. This separation also makes it difficult to fully understand our partner’s feelings and needs. In short, we are often communicating ‘blindly’ or without much information. This lack of information makes it very easy for either party to hurt the other and create disharmony in their relationships.

When love is experienced, it is usually accompanied by feelings of affection, trust, respect, care, and caring. When these are present in the relationship, the overall quality of the relationship is improved. In addition, love may also be experienced when the individual is alone; however, because of the deep depth of love, the need to be needed by another person is usually strong and, therefore, the need for companionship is often strong. The lack of companionship would then likely cause an individual to experience loneliness or even loneliness at times.

All of the above described components make it possible for love to truly manifest itself in a relationship. However, it is important for both parties to experience these components at the same time. Otherwise, the benefits created by the physical attraction and the desire for intimacy may be offset by the feelings of loneliness, resentment, and jealousy that are felt by the individual who is involved in these kinds of relationships. While feelings and actions may differ, both feelings and actions have a profound impact on the quality of the relationships they create and the longevity of those relationships. The key is to find a balance between the physical attraction and the feelings, as well as the needs of the other individual involved in the relationships.
