Mandy asks…

messed up military exp read?

read this tell me if it was messed up or not

For those of you who don’t know, I’m in the Delayed Entry Program for the United States Marine Corps (DEP).

I have to meet the physical requirements of the USMC, so they sent me down to Portland for my physical and ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery – A ****ing annoying but simple test).

After I passed that with flying colors, they took us (roughly 20) back to the hotel where we ate, went swimming, played PS3/360, hung out with hot Airforce chicks, and made fun of the National Guardsmen. :D

Anyways, after we had our fill of fun, my roomate and I went outside and smoked a couple ciggs, played hackysack, and went to bed.

At 4 ****ing o’clock that morning, we have to wake up, we go to the front lobby, have an all-you-can-eat bacon, sausage, egg, cereal, pancake, and fruit breakfast, then got on the bus to Portland MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station).

We go in, I get my ass chewed out by the Gunny (Gunnery Sergeant) because my name tag was on the outside of my hoody. After that I go in for my physical. This is where the REAL fun begins.

I got my picture taken, blood pressure read, hearing tested, vision, and then talked to the head doctor, who asked me about past injuries and scars.

THEN they make us (like, 15 of us) strip down to our skivvies, and do the “duck walk” across the room. 20 minutes of freaky-ass exercises later, the doctor takes us into his examination room one-by-one, and after each person came out, they looked slightly less-happy than when they went in.


So they call my name, and I go in (still in my boxers). He asks me to sit down on the table, and I do.

He listens for my heart, gets my total body fat %, looka in my eyes, ears, and mouth, then says, “Alright, take off your underwear”.

So I do, and he starts grabbing my now shriveled nuts (it’s cold in the MEPS building!) and then places his forefinger and middle finger on my groin and tells me to cough. I do, and then he says “Okay.”, so I started putting my boxers back on.

He wasn’t having that.

He said, “Turn around, bend over, and spread your cheeks.”.

I feared for my brown-cherry, but did as he said. He again said, “Okay.” and told me to put my boxers back on.

I then walked out of that room so fast I nearly tripped on my feet.

I got dressed and went to the next station.

Which wasn’t really any better.

This Cambodian guy was like, “oh here, take this cup and follow me”.

The ****er watches me while I TRY pissing in a ****ing cup, and won’t take his eyes off my Leeroy Jenkins, ya dig? So I ask him why he was checking my meat out, and he says he has to do it to make sure I’m not using an “Artificial Urination Device”.

I pissed in that cup like nobody has pissed before. I filled that ****er up to the brim and walked with honor to the (HOT) asian chick who was going to seal my urine.

They took my blood to test for the AID’s, and I got the results back. Negative. I don’t have AID’s ;3.

I ended up waiting for 10 more hours, watching Full Metal Jacket on the TV, and playing Pool.

At like, 7 pm my ride got there and I fell asleep in the van, feeling violated and abused.

I ****ing LOVE Portland MEPS.

Um.. Nope not messed up that’s what happens to everyone at all the MEPS stations everywhere. But your narration of it was very um…. Colorful, thanks for the laugh.

George asks…

What happens when you are first diagnosed with Diabetes Type II?

I am 29 and I am going to be tested for Diabetes soon. Here are some of the things happening.

I am seeing spots, and my vision is somewhat blurred. I can’t really see objects that aren;t close. Also (not sure if this has to do with it) My eyes always feel like theres fluid in them. Its a weird feeling.

I have tingling in my feet, especially when I sit. Its in my hands and it tingles incredibley in the left hand every morning when I wake up.

I don’t pee alot, accept at night after I’ve gone to bed. I wake up 3 times at least to pee. And again, not that this may have anything to do with it but, it always smells like cereal….?

So, my question is, if this is diabetes, what will happen? WIll they give me medications? Btw, yes I am overweight, and thats probably why I have it. I started seeing these floaters a onth ago and made an eye appointment (app. is next week) and after some research got concerned that it could be diabetes. So I started eating healthy and exercising (sad that it takes something so dangerous to motivate some people) and have lost 25lbs, but still have a ton (not literally) to go. Will loosing all of the extra weight help at all? Will I still need meds? I’m fine with medication, I want to do everything possible to get better.
I did mention that I get up a lot to urinate. I also go a lot in the day, I just didnt mention that because I drink a lot of water… I figured it may have something to do with that.

I know blurred vision is a sympton of HBP, but tingling, never heard/read that. Both ARE symptoms of diabetes.

admin answers:

First of all it is a MISCONCEPTION that diabetes is cause by being overweight. Recent research by the BDA has found that up to 20% of type 2 diabetics are overweight. Type 1 Diabetics tend to be younger but it can develop in anyone, this type of diabetes is due to a problem with the production of insulin, where as type 2 is a problem with the utilisation of sugar in the body it tends to run in families and is more likely to develop if you are overweight, but not everyone who is overweight and has a family tendancy for diabetes will develop it.
Sorry on to your question yes it could be diabetes, you doctor will do either a Glucose tolerance test or a HBa1 test the first measures how glucose is absorbed by taking blood before you have eaten (fasting blood sugar level) and then you will be given a drink with a measured amount of sugar in it and blood will be taken at intervals and the behaviour of the glucose level noted. HBa1 measures the average blood glucose level over the last 6 -8 weeks (names may vary depending where you live). |The doctor may also do a finger prick test and check the blood glucose level there and then as both the other two need to be sent to a lab for the results. If diabetes is confirmed you will be given advice on diet,exercise and medication. You will either be advised to get a blood glucose monitor or have one given to you and told how and when to check your levels.
Diabetes can be managed in various ways and depends on how severe your symptoms are and will include one or more of the following change in diet( No foods are banned but you will be encouraged to eat a healthy varied diet) more exercise and medication, normally tablets but sometimes type 2 diabetics need Insulin (not often) You may find that you changing to a healthy diet and exercising that you may not need drugs. There is a huge wealth of knowledge of diabetes about these days and it can be confusing but you will soon work out what foods affect your blood glucose levels and can avoid or limit them. I found using the Glycemic Index levels of foods to help me decide what foods to eat/try and experimented as time past.
Well done for losing the weight and keep on exercising but believe me it is a lot easier to manage diabetes these days.

Daniel asks…

HELP!! high bloodpressure?!?


I’m 15, female, 174~cm and weigh 58kg. I am fairly healthy with a good size. Exercise 3 time a week, nothing serious (just for my health).
I’m not really sure how long I’ve had this but for quite some time.
I am prone to getting head rushes, sometimes I’m just sitting down and I sill get them.
I have actually passed out from this maybe two or three times.

What happens:
- things start to spin/tilt in my head
- I have to walk very slowly and/or grab a hold of something so I won’t fall.
- I get tunnel vision or more common… blackout vision (like a darkness creeps in from the corner of my eyes)
- it feels as if I have pressure inside my head.

I have headaches sometimes (sometimes accompanied by nosebleed), I have had an extreme, stabbing headache that lasted for a while.
I think my headaches are more to the left of my head, I can sometimes feel it throbbing.
As I can see, there is no connection to this and my activities.

P.S. I wear glasses but this started way back when I still had perfect vision.

admin answers:

Go to the doctor to make sure it isn’t serious.. But the EXACT thing happens to me very often. I’ve been to the docor several times about this but my blood pressure is normal.. They say it has something to do with my sinuses and its nothing serious, but I don’t know. But try experimenting with your diet, it may have something to do with your sugar intake. I say this because with me, I’ve noticed that the more things I eat that have more sugar in it, the more I get thooseee ^^ symptoms. I’m not sure what it is… But if you haven’t been to the doctor go just to make sure its nothing serious.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

Donna asks…

Want to see your aura? Serious only please.?

Source: Thiaoouba Try the exercise and post your results.

Seeing the Aura

This exercise is designed to see Aura for the first time and/or practice seeing Auras. Choosing good conditions is important: not only you see the Aura better, but also to gain a confidence about what you see.
Situate the person in front of a very softly illuminated PLAIN WHITE background. A color background will change Aura colors, so you need additional knowledge about combining colors. Some combinations of background and Aura colors may cause misinterpretation problems.

Choose ONE SPOT to look at. The middle of the forehead is VERY GOOD. This is a location of so called Brow Chakra or the Third Eye. In some cultures (India) they put a mark on a forehead. Such a mark in ancient times could mean the invitation to look and see the Aura.

Look at this spot for 30 to 60 seconds or longer

After 30 seconds analyze surroundings with your peripheral vision, while still looking at the same spot. Continuing the concentration is most important. Resist temptation to look around. You should see that the background nearby the person is brighter and has a DIFFERENT color than the background further away. This is your own perception of the Aura. The longer you concentrate, the better you will see it. Remember, concentration on one spot increases your sensitivity by accumulating the effect of the Aura vibration reaching your eyes.
Please post the result of your exercise, if any. Thanks
Wow. Thank you everyone for your responses and willingness to try. Autumn, here are just a few interpretations of the colors you mentioned. Deep Red: Grounded, realistic, active, strong will-power, survival-oriented.

Muddied red: Anger (repelling)

Clear red: Powerful, energetic, competitive, sexual, passionate

Pink-bright and light: Loving, tender, sensitive, sensual, artistic, affection, purity, compassion; new or revieved romantic relationship. Can indicate clairaudience.

admin answers:

I tried it on myself using a mirror. Does that count? The background did get much brighter and I saw pinkish/redish. What does that mean? (Thanks for the post, I’ve always wanted to try this but didn’t know how)

Sandy asks…

What is going on with me?

Ever since the start of my xmas holidays, I’ve lost a lot of weight and I’ve only been doing moderate exercise, eating healthy, etc. I’ve also had chest pain, tiredness (I always need naps), itchy insides of my ears so much so I’ll scratch really hard and it still itches like mad, hair loss, sore dry throat, breathlessness, twitching/muscle spasms, trouble swallowing food (especially meats, such as chicken, beef, lamb, etc.), my legs constantly are numb, feelings of weakness, blurred vision/blind spots on my eye and aching joints. I’m going for a blood test tomorrow to see if somethings going on, people at school notice somethings different about me, that I’m not quite right. In a few days I went from 50kg to 48kg, without even exercising, although I am eating a very good diet. What do you think could be wrong? It’s so weird.

admin answers:

Hey, I understand the problems and frustration you’ve gone through when trying to lose weight, as I have a friend who is in the same situation as you. Nothing worked for him until he came across ‘The Diet Solution Program’. He’s been having great success with it, maybe this is something which could work for you.

Well, good luck!

John asks…

I need help determining the sickness I might have. What could it be?

I really need help determining what’s wrong. I’m 16, 5″2, and I am very well in shape. I exercise and get my 9 hours of sleep, all that jazz.
I wasn’t born with any disorders or health defects other than ADHD.
I take 30mg of Dexedrine capsule to help me focus when needed, which is only once every few days. I have never experienced anything negative while on the medication.
I don’t have high cholesterol. I have a pretty decent immune system,
and it is extremely rare that I ever get this sick.

Tonight, I walked to the movie rental place with my buddy. After about 10 minutes of looking around, I started to feel odd.
I was sweating like crazy and my body felt like a furnace.
It wasn’t anxiety.
It only worsened within the next 5 minutes or so,
and I started feeling like I wasn’t getting enough oxygen no matter
how deeply I breathed.
I decided to sit outside of the store and wait for him.
I didn’t feel too much better but the fresh air was relieving.

When he came out of the store we walked about a block away to the
mall so we could buy a movie from HMV.

After being in HMV for a few minutes I started feeling sweaty again with the same feeling of overheating.
However it was much worse, and my vision started getting a bit blurry.
It felt like my insides kept getting hotter and the hotter I got the more blurry my vision was.
It was average temperature in the building.
I started to feel really dizzy and eventually nauseous.
After my bud bought the movie I told him I needed to go outside. A few seconds after being outside I gagged but didn’t puke. I sat down on a ledge and my stomach started feeling really sick.
At the same time that my stomach was feeling sick, (like the kind of sick when you have a stomach flu), My left leg was also feeling very sick, it’s difficult to explain. Around my knee felt painful but also like there was a stomach ache in my knee.
Pain started bugging me a bit in random places only on my left side.
I still felt nauseous but didn’t puke or anything because I felt that if I was to puke, I wouldn’t be able to walk back home.
My bud called someone to pick us up and bring us back, and now we’re at home, but I still feel nauseous and like I can’t breathe,
and my leg and stomach are still having the weird sick feeling. I don’t have a headache but I did have an eye ache just before we walked to the video store.
This is all accompanied by a fever.

What really worries me is that when I feel this sick, I sometimes have seizures (I am not epileptic though). I really don’t want that to happen especially since my mother is not home right now.

This is what I need help with:
-Does anybody know of any possible explanation for these symptoms?
-What else should I be looking for?

admin answers:

You need to measure your body temperature, sounds like a fever and if your body temperature exceeds 104 Fahrenheit you can risk brain damage.

Wikipedia has an entry about excessive body temperature – fever of unknown origin:

You might have mononucleosis

Infectious mononucleosis (mono)

Or sepsis:

This one is extremely serious, sepsis is a general term for a whole-body inflammation.
Septicemia is the term for blood poisoning.
This can kill you, this requires emergency medical response.

If this is what you have, your youth and strength are keeping you alive for now, but you can’t recover on your own, this kind of illness attacks all the organs in the body at the same time.

Have someone take you to an emergency room.

Joseph asks…

We’re going to the eye doctor today?

I’ve noticed for the last couple of weeks that it looks like my daughter my have a lazy eye, or is cross eyed.

We’re going to the doctor today for an eye exam and also having her left eye checked out. I’ve looked it up on the net and it says that some eye problems can be corrected by glasses, patch and even eye exercises.

IF she does have a lazy eye or is cross eyed, what can i expect?

admin answers:

If you’re seeing a pediatric ophthalmologist, your daughter have a number of brief tests to assess how well she uses her eyes together, her vision in each eye (this can be done with pictures if your daughter doesn’t know all of her letters- I can’t tell how old she is from your question), and if her eyes cross, the doctor will measure the amount of crossing. Your daughter should be given eye drops to dilate her pupils, which will allow the doctor to make sure the back of her eyes are healthy and objectively measure her for glasses.

Some children have eyes that cross in b/c they are farsighted (hyperopia). It is like their eye balls are “too short” for the images they want to see to fall on the retina (the back of the eye that turns light into electrical signals that are sent to the brain). To see clearly, these children can accommodate, or change the shape of the lens inside their eye to make the light fall on their retina. When anyone accommodates, it causes our eyes to turn in a bit. If your daughter has some hyperopia, she may be prescribed glasses to focus the light on her retina for her so she doesn’t have to accommmodate/cross her eyes.

If her vision is different in one eye vs the other she may need to wear a patch over the better seeing eye to make her use the poorer seeing eye.

If you aren’t seeing a pediatric ophthalmologist, you may be referred to one, depending on what is found in your daughter’s exam today. Pediatric ophthalmologists are medical doctors who specialize in working with children and adults with strabismus (crossed, wandering, drifting eyes)

George asks…

So lazy…every little thing feels like so much effort…?

I’m 19, a full-time uni student (finance and accounting double-major), work 40 hours a week in addition, living on my own.

This is a normal, manageable life load, but lately I’ve been so exhausted, physically weak, and lazy.

I take Ritalin for my ADD, I eat healthy (2 bowls of granola cereal for breakfast, various candy bars or french fries as snacks, fast food lunch, and a bowl of salad for dinner). I get plenty of sleep, 4-7 hours every night, usually around 6 hours. I exercise daily and drink lots of water.

But I’m still so drained. I just flunked a finance test, I went over my credit card limit, and I have huge projects I’m worried about, and I’m freaking out about the viruses in my personal computer.

I cannot even read one sentence in a textbook. My eyes skim the words, but my brain is absorbing nothing. It’s like my brain is out of battery. I can’t even walk a few steps up the stairs without stopping for breath.

Has nothing to do with my “cycle”, had a clean bill of health at a recent checkup…

How can I get over this laziness? I’m completely disgusted with myself. Even caffeine doesn’t do the trick (for long, anyway).

admin answers:

4 hours of sleep isn’t much and you’ve got to get up the motivation which is not really all that easy unless you just want to tell yourself to get up and do it- thats the thing that works for me when all else fails- get up and go or else

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

May 23, 2012

Michael asks…

Best screen for saving my the eyes?

Does any one know any good monitor or laptop screens that are good for the eyes? I am a student and software developer as well. For my eyes this means I have to spend almost 80% of my day in front of a screen.

My main problem is stability of vision. I got blurry vision some years back because of playing games on Ethernet that gave me my present spectacles. The condition has been deteriorating. And now working for long long hours at the screen, I feel my vision getting less stable and further deteriorating.

I know taking regular breaks and rubbing the eyes with the palm helps. Is there any other information you guys can give me? w.r.t screen or exercises. Appreciate your help.

Thank You.

admin answers:

With your computer monitor, I would suggest you use a lcd monitor. Lcd monitors apparently reduce the glare of the screen, hence making it friendlier to the eyes.

There are not many eye exercises which help improve vision. However, make sure you take enough of vitamin A and visit your eye doctor regularly.

Steven asks…

What’s going on with me? Can anyone please diagnose all of this?

I’m a 17 year old male. I try to live a very healthy lifestyle. I exercise, I eat well and in good portions, I sleep about as much as anyone else my age does, and I live a pretty happy stress free life. But recently, probably ever since I turned 17 back in May, I’ve been experiencing this very annoying mental issue that has stumped me and doctors since I started noticing it. I’ve also been experiencing many different kinds of other health issues along with it.
The head issue is very difficult for me to explain to people… But everything just seems to not seem real anymore, like it’s no longer my life or something. It all just seems like a big dream. I’m not performing very well cognitively, every time I try to analyze a problem or question in school, it feels like something is stopping me from figuring it out to my full ability. Recent memories, seem like dreams I had long ago. While talking to people, I sometimes say things that are completely ridiculous and stupid out of nowhere, and I don’t even know why I would say those things.
I went to see a psychiatrist/psychologist not really sure what they were called, I was just hooked up with them through my family doctor when I told him about the problems I’m having, which he also put me on a large waiting list for an MRI and CT scan. The head doctor told me that it was most likely because of all of the activities I involve myself in, stretching my brain in all different directions. I told her about this fantasy book that I am writing, that I have spent months on creating the mythology behind it all, also about my guitar playing, piano playing, my singing, I have been in several bands and jam with my friends a lot, about how often I play video games, how I can speak French like 50% fluently, and am starting to become fluent in German. She told me that all of these things, including school, were making me feel this way because I am stretching my mind in many different directions that overwork it and put a lot of pressure on it. So I stopped with the games as much for about a month, other than Call of Duty recently, I stopped writing my book, am trying to get more sleep, but none of this is making me feel better.
I am also very concerned about the head problem, because just recently (which I am going to the clinic tomorrow to get this checked out.) My right pupil has been about 2/3 dilated than my left pupil, and always stays this way. My eyes have been giving me many different feelings; dryness, soreness all around, lots of veins. Which brings me to another problem. My sight has gradually been getting worse for the past few months. I used to have perfect vision, but now everything that is far or even mid length away from me is blurry. Digital clocks, text on TVs, all blurry with halos around them. It just seems to be getting gradually worse. I have a eye doctor appointment for two weeks from now, so I will get the report on that. But I am just worried that I have some sort of serious brain problem that ties both of these problems together. Like a tumor, or an aneurysm. I’m really scared. I’m afraid to even sleep, because I worry that the aneurysm will go off or whatever happens, and I’ll die or go into a seizure and have serious brain damage for the rest of my life (I don’t know much about aneurysms). I’m just scared…
Other problems include serious back problems, my spine is bent sideways and I have to see the chiropractor every two weeks, I recently seemed to have developed lactose intolerance which was confirmed by a blood test, I get strange headaches a lot, I am very badly flat footed, and I’ve had to go to the doctor’s for a number of random infections, cankers, or any other simple thing, but this all just seems to be happening way too often.
Thank you so much for reading all of this, if you did. I’m just really scared and can’t sleep right now, but can’t do anything else about it at the moment.
None of this! used to be a problem about a year ago or so. None of it. This all has just been happening within that time line.
I also do not do drugs, or drink.

admin answers:

I’m not trying to be rude… But do you do drugs? Heavy drug use can permanently damage your brain in this way. If your answer is yes, then I’d say that’s what is causing these problems (minus the back and foot problems). If your answer is no, then I wish you the best of luck in finding the answer to your problems.

Mark asks…

I am half blind and I have a question.?

Dear friends,

Two years ago I was driving my car down the road and I was on the stop signal waiting for the green light. In that few minutes of waiting I started to stretch my neck leaning forward and sideward and then turning my face to the left and to the right. Normally when I am turning my face to the left and right I have this habit that I will give a little push with a help of my fingers on my chin and I normally apply a little force by pushing sideways and this way I can hear cracking sound at the back of my neck that gives me a little feeling of relief. But I am doing this action not because of I am feeling fatigue or tired but I feel it has become my habit of stretching my neck and sometimes I am stretching and cracking my fingers as well.

On January 4, 2007 something has really happened different after stretching my neck and this is the time when I felt my vision turned into like a scrambled TV Channel it looks like a horizontal lines that is moving up and down so fast. Then I tried to close my eyes for about 30 seconds then when I opened my eyes the scrambling vision was gone. I thought I can continue to drive so I stepped on the gas pedal and the car started running slowly but I was feeling of so much discomfort and worried about what is going on. After about 50 meters I am approaching a corner when my brother who was sitting next to me grabbed the stirring wheel and turned it to the left and in that, I was surprised and I break the car abruptly realizing that something is in front of us that I can not see. When I turned my whole face to my right side I saw that there was a car parked on the side of the road and I could have hit it if my brother wasn’t there. This is the point where I came to realize that I lost my peripheral vision. I also lost my balance but I can still walk, I am feeling drowsiness and vomited few times during the time when I was admitted in the hospital. I was in the hospital for about a week and I have been monitored and tests were also conducted such as Blood full profile, CBC, Absolute neutrofil count, CT scan
Vision field analysis, ECG, Carotid duplex scan. All the test have shown normal with some which is little above high level and this is the cholesterol level. The findings from the doctors show that I had a mild stroke which I am still doubtful to believe and so I am seeking for other opinion.
After two years my vision is still the same, but I don’t feel too much of drowsiness anymore which is a good improvement, I am doing exercise regularly and taking multi vitamins more on B1, B6 and B12, Aspirin is also required as blood thinner.
I need your help what is the best test to find out the actual problem? Can MRI test find the exact location of nerve which is affected? And what is the cure and prevention for this problem? I really appreciate your help and thank you in advance..

admin answers:

I have to agree with your doctors. I would like to reserve judgement as i haven’t seen your scans of course, but the symptoms you describe are pretty convincing for a small stroke affecting the occipital area of the brain, which deals with vision. A CT scan will often display evidence of a stroke, especially 24 hours or more after the event. MRI is an excellent modality for imaging the brain, but may not give any information not already gleaned from the CT. However if your CT was normal and the symptoms have persisted, it may be worth an MRI.
It is unlikely that you will recover the lost vision. If, as seems most likely, it was a stroke, the area of the brain has died and will not regenerate. Having had one stroke, you are at increased risk of further strokes, so no cigarettes, low fat diet, exercise, continue on aspirin, and get regular check ups with your doctor.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Lazy Eye

May 22, 2012

Sandra asks…

How do you decrease the fat around your mid-section?

Yes, I know. This is probably what, the billionth weight-loss question you’ve seen on here? “Well, dude, if you knew that, why would you ask your own question rather than looking up another person’s?” I’m lazy. I don’t feel like straining my eyes to search for one.

Anyway, onto the question. I’ve seen one hundred million things of, “Lose 9 pounds every 11 days!” “Get abs in 23 days!” They pretty much tell me how so many people eat as much as they want and don’t gain weight. What exercises do these people do? Do they eat with this special schedule? Do they count calories? I mean, I’m not hopelessly overweight. Around the 15-pound area. Maybe a bit less.

So do I have to do 5 billion crunches a night or something? Or eat an apple every hour? I can do that, but you know, does it work? How long? I can wait a month, or two, or three. So yes, around my mid-section. I am, right now, probably around a size 6 (womens, obviously) I believe. Anybody care to help me?

-I have always been eating the wrong way.. I do not eat healthy food.. Lately, I have been depressed for few months, and this week I feel so lazy and tasteless. I’m doing nothing, always inside my room.
-Another thing, for few years until now, I also have obessive-compulsive disorder. It worsened last year when my grandmother died.
-Another one, I am always sleeping around 4 AM and wake up at 11 AM or 12 noon. I have big dark circles under my eyes.
-What should I do? I do not eat healthy food and I do not exercise. I feel so lazy. I don’t want to do anything. I’m always here inside my room.

-By the way, I just graduated and I resigned with my job. So I’m doing nothing. I don’t feel like working as of this time because I’m just feeling lazy. And I certainly don’t want people to know about my depression and OCD.
Thank you! ;)
Another thing, even if I don’t feel like eating, I still eat a lot.
I’m currently living far away from my family and close friends so I’m always alone.

I think you need to build your confident back and get something you might be passionate about.

Depression sometimes comes from many other feelings bottle up inside of you till there is a moment when you cant identify what is bothering you.

Try to vent your feelings in paper or on the net or with someone, that will help to clear your mind and solve one thing at the time instead of having lots of things in your mind which make it more difficult to solve.

I would recommend you to use a forum I use to say anything I have on mind, sometimes I don’t even need an answer, but is still nice to see that other people follow me and try to help me. I can also keep track of my post to see those different things that it was on my mind.

The forum I use is in

Good luck, and don’t give up, live is short and you have to make the most of it.

PS: Please don’t take any medication, leave that for the doctor, if you feel you need professional help, please go to the doctor.

Joseph asks…

Why am I so ugly and fat and how can I get rid of this fast?

I am obese, with a BMI of 38.7, which is obese. By far obese…and I can’t seem to lose weight. I hate exercising, I’m lazy and I don’t have any influence to because it never works for me. I never see results and I’m sick of starving myself and going on diets that never work. I don’t know what to do. I’m only 15 nearly 16 and I want to lose weight. Anorexia or bulimia is the only way I can think of. I am so fat it isn’t funny. My gut is discusting and my legs are huge. My neck is full of fat and I’m so self-conscious. I hate being who I am to begin with. I’m ugly, period. Ugly blonde hair, ugly blue eyes, ugly body, ugly voice, ugly brain and mind, ugly heart, ugly everything. I’ve been depressed for 3 years and I swore to myself if I’m not skinnier by the end of 2011 I’m going to commit suicide. What do I do?

Please, please don’t revert to suicide; there’s people that love and care for you, and you’ll lose your only chance at life – and I know that’s easy to say, and that, right now, life really isn’t worth it, but it’ll get better. Losing weight is difficult, and giving up is really, really easy, so you have to remember why you want to lose the weight, what it will do for you. Think of how amazing life will be once you lose the weight and use that as a goal. I really don’t know any effective diets and exercises, but I’m sure If you research or maybe even see a dietician, you could learn a lot about it. The main thing is, when you start your weight loss, don’t stop. Start slowly, increasing exercise as you go – it will only get easier, the more you try. Don’t give up, and try to stop doubting yourself.   

I really hope that you can achieve your goals and live a happy life. You seem like a really nice person, you just need a little help and some confidence. :)
