    Question: My boyfriend likes to have sex with me when I'm asleep. Is this normal? Is there a name for it and where can we find more info?    Dr. Pies' Answer


    Question: I have been looking for a survey tool that would measure stigmatization. I have not been able to find one, do you know of any such tool?    Dr. Pies' Answer


    Question: I often am overly intense on everything, from making coffee in the morning to completing work assignments. If other people are involved (like my family) I am intense at them as well if things don't go the way I expect them to. At the same time, I am most intense at myself, where I have certain expectations and if I don't meet them I beat myself up about it, sometimes for days. It is causing me to be very moody, on-edge, and I'm losing sleep. It is really starting to bother me, and bother my wife as well. I have a good diet, I excercise regularly. Since I'm writing this, I guess I've decided that it is a problem. What can I do?    Dr. Pies' Answer


    Question: I am looking for information on screening symptoms of Tardive Dyskinesia and have not had any luck. Is there anything you'd recommend? I seem to recall something called AIMS?    Dr. Pies' Answer
