Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSP) -- or Munchausen by proxy -- is a psychological disorder marked by attention-seeking behavior by a caregiver through those who are in their care. ... The person with MSP gains attention by seeking medical help for exaggerated or made-up symptoms of a child in his or her care.
The person with MSP does not seem to be motivated by a desire for any type of material gain. While health care providers are often unable to identify the specific cause of the child's illness, they may not suspect the mother or caregiver of doing anything to harm the child. In fact the caregiver often appears to be very loving and caring and extremely distraught over her/his child's illness.

A Neurochemical process that occurs when you are in love. Your body is releasing adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin.

Once you've fallen for someone, your body naturally speeds up its processing of these feel-good hormones, which creates a chemical intensity that is often described as "love." It's not long before our bodies become addicted to the euphoric feelings of love triggered by that special someone.
Contrary to You, separation can create
feelings of sadness to downright agony depending on the relationship and the amount of time you've been apart. Naturally, missing your loved one is a totally normal reaction to being separated from them. Whether you're apart for weeks, or even a matter of just hours and days. Pining after someone who isn't physically with you can give a sad-like feeling. So it's not suprising the chemical reactions your brain may experience when you miss your partner.

Its hard to explain the empty feeling in your heart. Why does it hurt so much? Why wont it go away.

You had hopes and dreams with a certain person but they'd continuously hurt you. Was it their way of pushing you away? Why couldn't they just leave the relationship?

You made yourself vulnerable to this person and they broke you down time after time. The pain was unbearable. You tried to ask why they did these things to hurt you, but they'd laugh at you and call you sensitive. The unanswered questions are the pain now.

Someone far more special will soon come into your life, someone who brings you up, who cherishes the small things, who doesn't feel entitled, and who brings the best out in you not the worst.
The pain is not forever. It was just a lesson along the way. It's okay to be vulnerable. It's all worth it in the end.

We know chemistry when we feel it with another person, but we don't always know why we're drawn to one person over another. Is it just a cascade of neurotransmitters and hormones conspiring to rush you toward reproduction? Is it attraction borne of a set of shared values? Or is it bonding over specific experiences that create intimacy?

It's probably a combination of all three, plus ineffable qualities that even matchmaking services can't perfectly nail down.

With few exceptions, behavior has features of both genetics and history. It's nature and nurture.

Scientists who study attraction take into consideration everything from genetics, psychology, and family history to traumas, which have been shown to impact a person's ability to bond or feel desire.

Love can be broken down into three distinct stages: lust, attraction, and attachment. In each stage, your body chemistry behaves differently. It turns out that "chemistry" is, at least in part, actual chemistry. Biochemistry, specifically.

In the lust and attraction phases, your body is directing the show, as people can feel desire without knowing anything personal about the object of that desire. Lust, is nothing more than the existence of a sex drive, or the craving for sexual gratification. It's a sensation driven by estrogens and androgens, the female and male sex hormones, based in the biological drive to reproduce.
Attraction may be influenced less than lust by physiological factors -the appeal of someone's features, or the way they make you laugh—but your body is still calling the shots at this stage, pumping you full of the hormones cortisol, adrenaline, and dopamine, effecting your brain in a way that's like the way illicit substances do.

The attachment phase is characterized by increases in oxytocin and vasopressin; these hormones are thought to promote bonding and positive behaviors to sustain connections over time in order to fulfill parental duties.

Additionally, while oxytocin has long gotten the credit for being the love hormone, scientists dont use oxytocin freely anymore, because it has broader functions than simply bonding. It also plays a role in the contraction of the uterus to stimulate birth, instigating lactation, and sexual arousal; low levels have been linked to autism spectrum disorders.

Chemistry has been linked to a charmingly named hormone known as kisspeptin. Produced in the hypothalamus, kisspeptin plays a role in the onset of puberty, and may increase libido, regulate the gonadal steroids that fuel the sex drive, and help the body maintain pregnancy. There is a lot more study about the role kisspeptin plays in attraction.

Chemistry predicts nothing but chemistry. This is because chemistry can make people blind to actual incompatibilities or warning signs. A spark can build based on what you have in common. You can grow into love, but you grow out of lust.

An annual event in most educational jurisdictions, ostensibly for the presentation and discussion of educational research developments, and to satisfy educationists' professional development requirements. However, the true function of the seminars, held over weekends in five-star hotels, is to foster an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity, to kindle group learning experiences, and foment pedagogical stimulation between teaching colleagues, away from the constricting influence of family, work, and routines.
Judith paused and turned to stare at a sparrow fluttering under the eaves outside the window. She could not remember how many men were in the spa bath that night in her luxury hotel suite on the last night of the teachers' conference, her memory of the watery group encounter was just a champagne and cocktail-fuelled haze. All she knew is that now, four week's later, the pregnancy test was positive. How could she explain things to her husband? They hadn't had relations for years. Were there five men, or six? That ancient bearded professor had been at the back of the queue, she remembered that...
"Miss, oh,Miss.." one of her literature students calling out snapped her out of her reverie....
What the hell was she going to do now?
