Abstract
In this book, Sarah Smith Rainey examines the subject of care between couples consisting of a disabled person and a nondisabled person, focusing on the nature of care in loving and sexual relationships. Rainey illustrates that the bulk of existing research posits care as a burden most often placed on women and that caring of disabled people is portrayed as stressful, and more often than not, a major factor in relationship disillusion. Rainey asserts that in many cases care between disabled/nondisabled couples offers a profound aspect of intimacy that enables relationship resilience.

Abstract
Puberty is a time of huge change in the physical body, in emotional experience and in social relationships. Having an understanding of these developments and learning how to deal with them is essential, and for people with Asperger's syndrome it can be a challenge to get to grips with the social and emotional aspects of puberty, sex and relationships.This book is ideal for those who need clear, detailed explanations and direct answers to the many questions raised by puberty and sexual maturity. Sarah Attwood describes developments in both the male and female body, and explains how to maintain hygiene and personal care, and to promote general good health. She examines emotional changes, including moods and sexual feelings, and provides comprehensive information on sex, sexual health and reproduction. She looks at the nature of friendship, how it changes from childhood to adulthood and its importance as a basis for sexual encounter. She also offers coping strategies for different social experiences, from bullying to dating, and includes essential tips on the politics of mature behaviour, such as knowing the difference between public and personal topics of conversation. Making Sense of Sex is a thorough guide written in unambiguous language with helpful diagrams, explanations and practical advice for young people approaching puberty and beyond.

Abstract
Human newborns exposed in utero to maternally administered SSRIs such as fluoxetine (FX) have an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes including poor neonatal adaptation. This comprises respiratory difficulty, jitteriness, cyanosis when feeding and persists for several days after birth. Several potential mechanisms underlying these symptoms have been proposed: 1) acute toxicity to the drugs (i.e. serotonin syndrome), 2) withdrawal syndrome due to the sudden discontinuation of maternal-fetal placental drug transfer at birth or 3) an SSRIs-elicited alteration in fetal brain development. However, the actual mechanism has not been elucidated.
