David asks…

Why won’t she give any effort to help me?

My fiancée just won’t care about any of my problems! I’m not okay, as far as happy or healthy goes. I have severe depression, Arrhenphobia, Anthropophobia, Agoraphobia, I’m technically anorexic (500cal or less a day) but still fat(220lbs), plus the binging every few days which makes me really sick, a ‘mild’ case of Asperger’s Syndrome, gender-confusion, self-mutilation issues, self-hatred, self-obsession, suicidal thoughts, dealing with PTSD from a real shitty childhood, I was raped by my only friend a few months ago and he won’t leave me alone, pet obsession, religious backlash, severe separation anxiety, I hate where I live, I hate my apartment, I hate my father and step-family (although I know they mean well, I think), and I’m being pushed into a career that terrifies me.

BUT! I’m not stupid. I know what I need to make me happy and it’s surprisingly simple: I need to become comfortable in my body, that way I won’t have as much of a problem dealing with people. I need to get on medication for my depression, which I inherited from my mother(thanks a lot…). And I need to get a stable, profitable career so that I can have enough money to live comfortably.

On that: Becoming happy with myself is all about health. If you’re healthy, you’re beautiful automatically. I’m not looking for perfection. For right now I just want to be able to feel comfortable with clothing. It will take a bit of surgery and therapy in order for me to be okay with myself nude. That means a healthy diet and moderate exercise, obviously. But that’s hard. I didn’t grow up with anyone to discipline me. I was a poor child, but I got what I wanted most of the time, and what I wanted was to not do chores, not bathe, eat waaaaay too much, and be lazy. And I got all that in abundance.

Getting off track here: SO! Basically, I have all this shit going on. What’s keeping me from just killing myself already? My fiancée. I don’t know what I’d do without her. We met 4 years ago, at the peak of both our problems. She had family issues (a manipulative mother and a shitty living environment), and she was also a total idiot. That may seem mean, but it was her way of dealing with life. Ignorance is bliss, after all. We were good friends for about half a year, then we fell in love. We both gave up everything to be together, overcoming extreme living conditions, horrible stress, and a loss of loved ones. I’ve dedicated my life to her happiness. I’ve helped her mature and learn to think for herself, to be healthy and intelligent and to love herself for who she is. And it’s been a fight. She’s a real brat when it comes to doing anything besides what she wants. I’ve had to deal with tantrums and guilt trips and all that wonderful bullshit. We’ve talked about it, she knows she does it. She just can’t help it when it’s happening and I understand. I have the same problem. BUT, I stood strong and still made her do the things she needed to do, and she’s better because of it.

That’s what I need, and she knows it. I’ve told her on many occasions. I need someone who cares enough to discipline me when I need it. She just doesn’t seem to care though. She gets all teary eyed and determined when I have a breakdown, but the very next day she’s back to being selfish and ignorant of my problems.

She says she understands and that she cares. I don’t know how to be more clear on what I need. I’ve had this same conversation with her so many times, but the next day she seems to forget all about it and goes back to only caring about herself and being lazy. This has been going on for months! You’d think that if she really cared, she’d put aside her own lazy, selfish behavior to help me. I even offered to take care of ALL the household responsibilities so she would only have to make sure I did them. I told her that she didn’t have to bathe as long as she made sure I did. I don’t know how much easier I can make this! Why is it so hard for her to just tell me to do something?! It’s not like I’m hard to control! I’m an obedient person by nature. Hell, the “I’m gonna count to 3″ thing works wonderfully! All I’m asking is for her to basically boss me around! How fucking hard is that?! I’m allowing her to fuck around on the computer, eat pizza in bed and have no responsibilities in return for a firm “Go do what you need to do!” That’s all I need!

I love her with all my heart, but WHY WON’T SHE JUST CARE???!!!
Hey m,
I just want to clarify that the only reason I bother to live anymore is because I don’t want to hurt her by killing myself. I don’t care about myself at all, if fact I don’t even believe that people who are as messed up as me belong in society. I live for her, and I suffer for her. If she expects me to continue living just for her own happiness, then I believe that I deserve a little help to be happy as well. Do I not deserve to be happy? Is it right that I continue suffering just so that she doesn’t have to deal with my problems?

Also, to everyone who will recommend a therapist: I know I need one desperately, but my father controls the finances around here and until I can make enough money to be self sufficient I’ll have to deal without one any way I can. I’ve tried and tried to make him understand, but he refuses to believe anything is wrong with me.

admin answers:

This isn’t about her…this is about you. If you don’t care enough to change your life no one else “caring” is going to make a difference.

Look…you call her a brat…why are you still engaged? Both of you have issues that should be worked through before you attempt to foist them off onto another! If you were strong enough to help her you are strong enough to help you. It’s a choice. Rise up and make that right choice. Care enough about you to do what you need to take care of you.

You can do this.

admin answers:

Whoa!

Any time we depend upon another person to make us feel better, we risk the chance of being “let down,” disappointed, angry or sad. That is the PERFECT set-up to blame someone else for our problems.

Asking her to boss you around is a control issue. Please!!!!!!!!! Seek individual counseling, if you EVER want things to go your way!!!!!!!!!!! It is very very unhealthy! For your loved one and for you!!!!!!!!

In the meantime, I pray your eyes are opened to the truth.

GOD BLESS.

Sandra asks…

Opinions on story, plz?

  Andy Simms placed his homework on his desk before running downstairs to meet Geoffrey Ziegler and Lucas Green. The moment Andy stepped into the basement, Geoffrey started running off at the mouth. Andy groaned silently as he flopped onto the couch. He had already had a hard day with all of those tests he took. All he needed right now was to sit down and relax.
 ”I saw this chick today at school and she was bangin’!” Geoffrey enthused.
“Did you get her number?” Andy asked listlessly.
“Hell yeah. We’ve been texting all day.”
“What does she look like?” asked Lucas.
“I just told you she was bangin’!” laughed Geoffrey. “But she’s a little blond with a nice booty.”
“Cool.” Andy said, slumping against the armrest.
  His arm muscles throbbed. He felt like dipping them in a bucket of cold water to relieve the pain. Gym had benefits and drawbacks. The benefits were that he got the exercise; the drawbacks were that it wore him out. He was into sports, but not the type of workout his teacher Mrs. Close made him do every gym period. So as of right now, he was going to chill out in his basement.
  “You look wasted.” Geoffrey observed.
“I’m just tired.” groaned Andy, flipping the channels with his remote control.
“I hear ya.” Geoffrey continued. “That bitch Graves gave me a packet to do. I’m not gonna do it until tomorrow morning.”
 ”That’s procrastinating.” Lucas reminded.
“So?” Geoffrey said. “There’s nothing wrong with being lazy.”
“I’m with you.” Andy laughed wanly.
He took a Gatorade bottle and downed himself with it. His eyes weren’t really focusing on anything at the moment. A nap would be nice. That way he could recharge himself and have the energy to talk about hot girls.
   Just then a familiar ringtone sounded from his iPhone. He groaned. He knew who the caller was. He didn’t even bother to look to see who it was. Finally, the call went to voicemail.
“You gonna answer it?” Lucas questioned, reaching over for the phone.
Andy snatched it away from him. “No. Let her answer herself.”
His best friend Savannah had called him. At the moment she was his ex best-friend. Two days ago she had disappointed him by talking all that bullshit about his best friend Nicole Lyon. Savannah and Nicole were supposed to be friends after the feud they seemed to have had, but Savannah obviously didn’t want that. He wasn’t talking to her until she admitted that she insulted Nicole.
  “Check her voicemail.” Lucas said. “Let’s see what she says.”
“Fine.” said Andy, taking the phone and putting it to his ear.
He played his voicemail which said “Alright, you hoes and bitches. Get off my dick. I’ll hit you up later.”
Then there was a click and Savannah’s voice came on. He put it on speakerphone and allowed his friends to hear the message.
“Yeah, Andy…I’m not some ‘hoe’ or ‘bitch’. You said you would talk to me this morning by Carter’s locker. You never showed up. We needed to talk. This is serious. I’m your best friend! We need to at least try to work this out. Please call me back.”
Geoffrey burst into fits of laughter. He leaned over in his seat, looking as if he was about to throw up all over the accent rug. Andy just rolled his eyes. She was acting like an angry girlfriend. He didn’t have time to get in an argument with her. Especially if all she was going to do was talk nonsense.
However, he did feel a little bad. They were best friends after all. They were supposed to be there for each other. But Savannah had irritated Andy. He knew how much she was upset of Carter breaking up with her, but to insult his new girlfriend was completely wrong. She was supposed to move on and be the mature one. It wasn’t like her to call Nicole fat and ugly. That was what got Andy’s attention. He usually didn’t listen to people like Erica Nasso, but when she told him that Savannah made up so many things about Nicole, he had to listen.
 ”Ignore the bitch.” snorted Geoffrey. “She’s not worth five cents.”
Andy involuntarily clenched his fists. Even though he was mad at Savannah, he still didn’t like it for people to talk about her. And Geoffrey had been talking about her ever since he known her.
“By the way, Kimmie hasn’t called me.” Geoffrey said. “She was supposed to call me yesterday.”
Andy snickered. “Oh, her phone’s broken.”
“Why?”
Andy smiled at the memory of talking on the phone to Kimmie Tankersly the other night. She had explained to him how her cellphone was waterproof while she was talking in the shower. He guessed that phone wasn’t as waterproof as she had said.

A writing teacher of mine told me to stick to ‘said’ and ‘asked.’ Dialogue will flow better and will make more sense.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Better Vision

Sandra asks…

What do you think of my short story / essay / writing?

Note: In the future, we will pretend my boyfriend never happened.

I am a hermit. No, not those hermit frogs that you find in the ocean.
A hermit is when your boyfriend named Matthew dumps you at the school playground during recess time. And so that’s how come I am sad and lonely today.

I am like Jaseline, who wears makeup and sings with the radio about having a broken heart, and is older than me in many other ways, too. Only I don’t like those songs on the radio. And I don’t wear makeup. But I am sad, like her.

Also, I am very sorry to report that Mathew has a severe vision problem. That’s because he did not see me when I told him “Hi Matthew, how are you today? I am good. The weather is lovely today. Don’t you think so?” I said that to impress him with my level of adultness ‘cause I always hear mommy talking about weather with our neighbors for centuries.

Only he didn’t answer. So I went to him again, “HOW ARE YOU, SIR?”
And he just walked right past me to Elizabeth. Elizabeth is the rich girl who wears cream-white ruffly-layered skirts with laces. Also, she wears pink bows on her French braids.
Elizabeth is so pretty and shiny that her sparkleness probably flashed in and hurt Matthew’s eyes. And so that’s how come he didn’t see me, I think.

I think that the president should make it illegal to be that pretty. Cause then boys will become blind, which is not always such a good thing. And girls will be helplessly broken- hearted, like me. That is no good, either.
To show Matthew how angry I was at him, I stood real tall on the top of the slides and yelled on the top of my lungs:”MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE. OH…HI THERE, SIR. THERE IS ONLY ONE ME IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD! I AM AN ENDAGERED SPECIES. AND SO PLEASE BECOME MY BOYFRIEND AGAIN!”

100 kids froze and stopped playing to stare at me. And laugh a whole lot. When Matthew he didn’t answer, I got worried- maybe he’s deaf, too…

So I yelled even louder: “I KNOW YOU CAN HEAR ME, MATTHEW. I AM NOT TALKING BEACAUSE I WANT TO EXERCISE MY TONGUE. AND SO PLEASE ANSWER, MISTER. OKAY?”
Since I exceed in asking questions, he exceeds in answering them.
“Well maybe you should exercise your fatty tongue — it talks too much,” that boy said.
And the kids laughed and laughed. But that’s not even funny.

And so I went to my bestest friend. Her name is Mommy. AND GUESS WHAT SHE SAID WHEN I TOLD HER HOW I BECAME INTO A HERMIT TODAY? “You’re too young for a boyfriend, honey. You’re only 8,” that’s what she said.
“No I’m not. I even told Matthew “the weather is lovely today, isn’t it” just like you do. She started laughing and laughing. She even called Grandma to tell her.

I don’t know what’s wrong with that woman.

admin answers:

A few minor however, forgivable errors. I found myself smiling all the way through, and loving the simple dialog and the child logic used to explain the situation and her feelings, it’s quite funny.
Excellent work.

Keep writing!

Jenny asks…

What illness do I have?

I’ve had most of these symptoms for 6 years. Doctors haven’t been very helpful. I’m 22 right now. I eat well, exercise/run daily, sleep 8-12 hours, don’t drink alcohol.

- dry hair, falling out a little bit daily with dandruff that doesn’t go away despite special shampoos
- dry skin, especially on the face
- dark circles under eyes and tired lines
- post-nasal drip in the morning
- nasal congestion
- fatigue
- low energy
- sleep for 8-12 hours, still tired
- bad memory, hard to concentrate
- constipation or diarrhea
- abdominal pain, usually in the morning
- gas
- heartburn (new symptom)
- cold hands and feet frequently, regardless of weather
- feeling really cold sometimes
- can’t eat in the morning
-constantly sore/tired eyes
-nose running a lot when outside or eating
-yellow/brown/clear phlegm every morning
-sore throat in the morning
-sensitive to light
-constant dead skin on lips
-trembling legs when standing (hard to describe)
-acne (I know this is normal at my age, but I also know that this kind of acne is more indicative of how badly my body is functioning rather than normal acne)
-bad breath
-pale complexion
-hemorrhoids
- second-long tremors across all body daily
-a lot of floaters in vision
-constant abdominal noises
- symptoms get better in evening

So far my ideas are hypothyroidism (not likely cause im male and young) or lyme disease.

Robert asks…

I fainted I need help..scared..?

fainted for a short time like barely a minute in class today. The room was steaming hot and wasn’t feeling good all day. I suppositly didn’t bang my head the teacher caught me while I was up to tell her I need to go to the nurse and I opened my eyes and I was on the floor. Before I fainted i felt like I was going to throw up in like the pit of my stomach and my vision got all blurryish and then like i felt warm, but the room was unbearablely hot! I woke up and like I snapped back to normal i was completely fine and vision perfect. My head hurts a tiny bit i don’t know if it’s stress from embarrassment I mean I was rolled out in a wheel chair for gods sake and I felt fine, I’m a little tired I wake up early for school which is normal. This happened to me last year a couple times(I was just a little shakey then like I cooled my face down and I was perfectly fine no fainting but blurrish vision again), i don’t eat that much in school on the count of i’m not hungry. I’ve been exercising and cutting down my food lately, possible not taking the approaite calories in a day. My mom talked to a doctor and said to take me to the ER I flipped and I don’t know if my head hurts from whatever I just have a little head ache nothing serious, but I’m really scared to get blood work done if I go like what should I do?!?!

I need help!

p.s
wasn’t feeling to great all day and then my friend had a bad headache the night we had a sleepover before we went to bed..i don’t know I just need advice!

I’ve been cutting down on what i’m eating and exercisng a lot more like I don’t if the change is just like a shock, but I lost like 7ish pounds in a short amount of time and all…

do you think i will be fine if I wait until tomorrow to see how I feel and then do something about it tomorrow

I need opinion’s!

admin answers:

Its so important to keep a good amount of sugar in your blood or all sorts of things can go wrong.
Even if your not really hungry you need to snack on something, your brain might not fancy it but your body needs it. The heat in the room would not have helped as you’d lose nutrients and salts in your sweat. Get a good healthy eating plan from a nutritionist and up the calories gal!!

Mark asks…

Translate this english to spanish?

My name is Emma and I’m 15, my birthday is the 8th on november. I have brown eyes and pink and blonde short hair. I’m not fat but I’m not fat but I’m not thin but I don’t do much exercise or eat properly so I’m not a very healthy person. I don’t eat much fruit or vegetables and eat a lot of junk food.
I’m generally quite a happy and kind person, and people say my best quality is my generosity, yet I can occasionally be quite selfish which I’d like to change. I’m also quite lazy, like my dad.
My mum and dad are divorced, but I have a stepdad. I also have one older sister who is 18, but I do have quite a big family, I have 6 uncles, 7 aunts and 16 cousins. my 2 dogs are called Imogen and Scott, and they’re black labradors.
My mum is very nice and generous, but very moody, like my sister, who is extremely stroppy, but my dad is relaxed, funny and lazy.
Usually I get on with my mum but I don’t get on with my sister because she is so stroppy. I probably get on with my dad best because we never argue but I don’t see him much. I fall out with my step dad a lot because I do badly at school.
I don’t do any sport but I used to do swimming, running, tennis, hockey and judo but I don’t anymore. My mum can’t do any sport and my dad and sister are too lazy. My boyfriend plays badminton for county.
I eat a lot of junk food, however, last night my mum made spaghetti bolognase. I should eat less junk and more fruit and to more exercise to be more healthy.
its not homework

admin answers:

Hi!
I am spanish
This is the spanish of Spain.

“Me llamo Emma y tengo 15 años. Mi cumpleaños es el 8 de Noviembre. Tengo los ojos marrones y rosas y el pelo rubio y corto. No soy gorda pero tampoco flaca. No hago mucho ejercicio ni como correctamente así que no soy una persona muy saludable. No como mucha fruta o vegetales y si como mucha comida basura
Normalmente estoy feliz y soy una persona amable. La gente me dice que mi mejor cualidad es mi generosidad, pero no puedo evitar a veces ser egoísta, y eso es algo que me gustaría cambiar. También soy perezosa, como mi padre.
Mi madre y mi padre están divorciados, aunque yo tengo un padrastro. También tengo una hermana mayor, que tiene 18 años. Tengo una familia bastante grande : tengo 6 tíos, 7 tías y 16 primos. Tengo también dos perros llamados Imogen y Scott, ellos son labradores negros.
Mi madre es muy buena y generosa, pero tiene mucho genio, como mi hermana, que es muy capulla. Mi padre es tranquilo, divertido y perezoso.
Normalmente me llevo bien con mi madre pero no con mi hermana porque ella es una capulla. Probablemente me llevo mejor con mi padre porque no discutimos nunca, aunque no lo veo mucho. Me quedaría con mi padrastro porque voy mal en el colegio.
No hago ningún deporte, pero suelo nadar, correr, jugar tenis, al hockey y practicar judo pero nada más. Mi madre no hace deporte y mi padre y mi hermana son también perezosos. Mi novio juega badminton para el país.
Puedo comer un muchísima comida basura, sin embargo, anoche mi mamá hizo spaguettis a la bolognesa. Debo comer menos basura y más frutas y hacer más ejercicio para tener mejor salud”

Chris asks…

I can’t ever stay awake?

I’m a 14 year old girl. I can’t stay awake, I’m always tired and if I put my head down for a minute I fall asleep. No one can wake me up either, I can’t have sleep overs with my friends because no matter how hard they shake me or hit me I’m still asleep. My parents scream at me in the morning because I can’t wake up for school but I just don’t remember ANY of it. She’ll have a conversation with me and I don’t remember it at all! Is this normal? How do I change myself? By the way, I exercise and go for runs during the day and also sometimes I have lazy days and I’m still like this. >:(

Ps I always have really bad bags under my eyes

admin answers:

Ok, there are three avenues to persue here bio-psycho-social.

Let’s start with biology, how’s your diet? Do you eat a balanced diet which includes fats, fibre, protein etc? I don’t know what your weight’s like, but that may be a big clue – are you underweight or overweight at all? How are your sugar levels? Do you drink plenty of water?

Next up, psycho (as in psychology, not psycopath). How are you feeling? Are you happy? Being sad or stressed can have a huge impact on your sleeping patterns…

Finally, social. Has anything changed in your life? Are you working more or harder? Have you picked up a part time job or do you have more homework? How are things at home?

The answer is of course to go and see you doctor, there are a thousand potential reasons for your tiredness, the simplest being you’re going through puberty and this is how your body is reacting, the most complex being a hidden illness, such as diabetes or hyperthyroidism or aneamia or worse.

Go to the doctor and good luck xx

Steven asks…

Extremely tired when waking up.?

I’m in my early 20′s and have had this problem since I was about 12-13. Regardless of how much time I sleep, it could be 2 hours it could be 10 hours. Waking up is PURE HELL!

It’s effecting my life as people think I’m lazy… But I’m not, I really CAN’T get out of bed!

I’m not especially sleepy, I’ll just have no strength, kinda between sleep and awake state.. if that makes any sense? And I cannot open my eyes, and when I do open them they have huge bags & I can actually feel the bottom lids sagging. It’s not uncommon for it to take me 1-3 hours to get out of bed.. This drags on throughout the day, somewhat like an old diesel engine getting going on a very cold day. Once I’ve been up for about 14 hours I’m full of energy. Some background info.
I don’t do drugs or smoke.
Rarely have alcohol.
Rarely even have caffeine
Exercise regularly, running, lifting, and yoga. (not late at night)
Don’t take medications unless it’s needed.
A very healthy diet.
Sleep on one of those form to you beds as my last one sucked.
Take my vitamins, especially B’s as they seem to help somewhat.
I’ve asked Dr’s and they blow it off because I’m so young and in really good shape.
Also, I can stay up for hours on end like 2 days straight without any stimulants.
So here’s my main problem Getting to sleep, is slightly troublesome, staying awake is a cinch, but Waking up is so hard that it’ll make my eyes water trying to get out of bed, even if I’ve had no sleep or plenty.

Any Ideas on the cause, or a solution?

Sharon asks…

Chronic Pains that are still acking up. Different Pains??//3 years.?

Ok for a couple months to a year now. Ive still have the same Chronic pain Ive had under my belly button from left to right. The only location of pain. But for some reason I have had something ells going on persistent with the pain. sometimes when i eat a good amount of food. The muscles under my skin near belly to pelvis, all that area feel like there trying to push out. unless that’s whats behind my muscles. i have this tingly prickly pain if i sit in weird positions. sitting down irritates it. walking and being active relieves pain. I went to the doctor year ago at least and he said chronic muscle disorder. but the hospital said inflamed lymph nodes from the CT scan. But i haven’t been super sick or being in super severe pain. its all pain i can handle but cant handle. I really cant handle this chronic pain. if i didnt have it i would be doing more with my live right now. but the reason i have this pain is from falling off a deck a couple feet, basically belly flop onto the hard ground and blacked out. woke up in severe pain. blacked out again. then woke up all tingly and walking to the street i was minor going in and out of vision but like speed walking threw my eyes. like strobe lights except slower and in a drunk state of mind. I did not go to the doctor after the fall. but after time the pain started to change every passing month to a year. its been 3 years now basically because Im turning 20 Dec 22. in 5 days. Would working out help? hottubs? Because time isn’t doing anything good. the pain keeps on going. And the more the pain stays the more i have issues with my own life living. i really hope someone has an idea on why this pain doesn’t just go away more. Is it because Ive been a computer player for many years? not much exercise or activeness until high school? i do a lot of sitting around still and that isn’t helping my pain. stretching flat on my stomach helps a little with pain. The only thing that worries me and my mom are. Doctors because she thinks they would want to cut me open, so do i a little and i wouldn’t want that to much. Shes into natural cures and foods that can help fix the human body but she hasn’t really been on the ball with helping my pain because i haven’t told her anything that could help my pain because no ones told me anything i can do. Most i have gotten from this is Things i could do to help my issue but not enough things i could actually do and or go by to help my pain without having to see a doctor. As a human i feel many things going on inside my own body. i feel like theres something wrong but i cant pin point it because nothing searious has happened. i dont no if
I’m fine but in pain or in pain but super serious. i don’t no if i internally bleed a little because the hospital didn’t find anything in a Full blood count or in the CT scan. Except inflamed lymph nodes. So everyone, For the love of everything existing. Tell me what i need to no. If your a doctor tell me straight up. if your into this field of pains, Tell me straight up. i need answers quickly as possible but professional and if so take time with your answer, how ever long it may be i don’t care as long as i can turn my life around from a feel simple facts. Thank you.

Simple fact, what you are going through is because you have pinched muscles in your back and neck. How’s that for simple? Next, the pain you feel in your stomach is because the muscles in your back are tight in that area and pressing on the nerves to your stomach making your stomach do unusual things. I could go on but it’s all the same, that as long as you have the tight muscles in your back and neck you are going to be in pain. Here is how to release those muscles:
For your neck:
place your hand alongside your head and push your thumb in under your ear and place it on the muscle there. Take your fingers and place them on the back of your neck on the muscles there. Press them together and hold a good amount of pressure on them. Then relax, take a deep breath an happening, the muscle going limp under the pressure. Continue to hold until the entire muscle has gone limp.
Back:
Place your left hand on your left knee. Place your right hand over your left shoulder and with your fingertips find the muscle next to your spine. Press on it and hold. Relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After about 30 seconds there should be a release happening and when it does slowly lower yourself forward onto your right leg. If you can lean over the outside edge of your leg it will be better for your release. Continue holding for a total of one minute. Then release but rest your body there for one minute longer. Then reverse and do the right side.
I bet your mom will like that way of fixing things, right? Also don’t do the neck one just one time, if you show any signs of things not going back to normal or they seem to drift back to the pain side again, step up the usage of the releases and make them stay where they should. Use it 3 or 4 times a day or more for a week. That should make sure all muscles have been released and are staying in their new home.

George asks…

Help please, how to reduce stress and tension :D Please?

Hello. I’ve had a really bad tension and stress problem for years now, but I’ve never seen a doctor about it and I’m not planning to. I find that I really easily get stressed, and when I do the muscles in my shoulders, neck, back and head really tense up, and I mean they really do. This also happens when I get really excited and happy which is a shame. This usually causes extremely painful headaches similar to migraines, I sometimes have 1-3 a week, and they last for hours, sometimes for the rest of the day! My eyes also hurt during these headaches although I have perfect vision. I’ve had this problem for a long time since I was a young child, and now that I’m 13 years old and growing rapidly, I understand that it would be a good idea for me to keep my stress levels down as I have read it may have an effect on growth(is this true). I get plenty of exercise and I’m a healthy weight, so what can I do to prevent this. I really don’t want to take any medication.

admin answers:

I’m not sure why you aren’t seeing a doctor about it, even if only to eliminate possible genetic and/or dietary causes behind your major stress levels.

Nevertheless, it’d be smart to look beneath the surface and find out what’s really bugging you. What unexpressed emotions are running the show, that cause you to flare up at a moment’s notice? Keep asking yourself until you find the answer/s, and more importantly, take it out on something safe – like your pillow or say, cardboard boxes (rip them up) until it has gone. Coz left unchecked, it’s only going to get worse.

Linda asks…

What do you think of these lyrics?

:3 It isn’t a mainstream pop or rock song, so not every line is gonna rhyme and it’s not gonna use simple, middle school vocabulary either (: You actually have to read it and decipher the meaning, it emphasizes the listener’s ability to come up with a meaning, instead of being very easy to comprehend. Don’t put negative comments if your too unimaginative to appreciate lyrics that aren’t simple and completely straightforward.

This sacred vision runs full with diamonds.
So far beyond my grasp.
Looks so good from here,
But I won’t have it any other way.

Light has abandoned the stars;
Blind to such scarred eyes.
Perception turning black,
Angels telling lies.
Never really cared, anyways.
Just another passing phase.

Embody and accept it as an offering.
Numbness is a consequence of sanctity.
Look closer and you’ll find giving up some things
Is a lot less painful than holding on to them.
Light has left the surface dry.
But I can still touch it.
Lost one sense, but strengthened another.
Feeling succumbs to something greater.

This is what we are capable of.
Exercising strength and will.
Love is just a barrier.
Nothing is unbreakable.
This is the final test.
On my way to transcendence…

Circle in an endless ring,
Burdened with a blessing.
Holding it all in the palm of one’s hand.
It never looked like this until the very end.
Burdened with a crooked path to follow.
And eyes that can’t see beyond the shallow steps.

Don’t try to comfort me.
I can’t feel anything.
Cut so deep,
But still not bleeding.

Thank you for reading anyways!!

I really like “Perception turning black, Angels telling lies.” and “Cut so deep, But still not bleeding.” Overall they’re pretty good but it depends on how you perform them.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Lazy Eye

Laura asks…

Why is everyone so defensive to overweight people?

ALRIGHT. BEFORE I GET A BUNCH OF HATERS.
I do NOT think i’m better than ‘chubby’ people, nor do I avoid them or do not like them.
Most my friends are overweight. I don’t care what you past as the answer as long as it’s not rude to me; go against me all you please.

But I’m so fed up with the “be happy with your body shape” movement that’s getting more and more support. Don’t get me wrong, a girl with curves is very attractive. But I want to roll my eyes when a down right fat person wants sympathy for their self inflicted health problems and low self esteem that was brought on by their own bad habits and lack of concern for themselves. Doctors try to educate fat people by bringing it to their attention how bad being overweight is for their health, but then the fat people take the facts as -critisism-! Are people really so lazy that they’d rather fight the facts, than exercise and eat better? Maybe there’s something I’m just not getting about this reasoning, so fill me in

admin answers:

Not all fat people are fat because of their bad habits.

I’m overweight plainly because I have a crappy metabolism. And I do exercise and eat less than what I used to, but I’m still overweight.

Linda asks…

what can I do to like myself more?

im a 21 year old college student and in high school and early college I have always been very thin (but healthy) with a flat stomach and everything. I really liked myself then cuz I looked good in my clothes and I was just happier. But when I was 18 I went though a major trauma (and I also had hyperthyroidism go into remission) so ever since then, I think my metabolism has slowed down and I also have been exercising much cuz I have arthritis in my knees so I cant run, whenever i do sit ups, I cant sit up AT ALL the next day, and almost any exercise at all, even speed walking, my heart speeds up so quickly so I feel exhausted and struggling to catch my breath after only a few minutes. ITS NOT CUZ IM LAZY so keep those kind of comments to yourself! it literally hurts to exercise. ive also tried dieting but the only times i diet and actually see change is when i have less than 1000 calories a day but then i have no energy. im a vegetarian so i get a lor of soy protein like those meat replacement things but (ironically) other than veggies in filled pastas like spinach and mushrooms, the smell of vegetables literally makes me gag, im serious, if i smell or taste most vegetables (besides only a couple exceptions like sweet corn and mushrooms), I will throw up. now I dont look good in my clothes and I have a very small chest (my 14 year old sister is bigger than me, how humiliating) so im really unbalanced and ackward. all this does nothing good for my self esteem. I dont think theres anything i like about myself except possible my eyes. my fiance tells me im beautiful and he loves me no matter what I look like and I know that im lucky to have someone who loves me like that but its hard to believe it when I look in the mirror and feel miserable. what can I do? dieting tips? easier exercise tips? anything nice?
please, please keep any nasty or rude comments to yourself. its really the last thing I need now :(

admin answers:

Your fiance loves you and you are beautiful to him. He loves you for more than your looks, and so should you! Throw away the magazines, the television, and the mirrors. Go for daily walks together. Just stroll down the street or at a neighborhood park. As you smile and make eye contact with people you pass by, look carefully at them. They are ordinary people, just like you. They come in all shapes and sizes. They are not air-brushed, and there are no special lights to enhance their looks other than the same sun shining down on you. They wear clothes from the same stores where you shop, they eat the same foods you eat, and they struggle with the same issues about themselves as you are facing about yourself.

If you smile at them and see the beauty in these real people, it will help you to like yourself more and help you feel better, too. We are herd animals and we need other people around us. Walking before eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner will boost your metabolism when you do eat. At the same time it will lift your spirits. Most of all, it will give you a healthy daily dose of reality. You don’t have to be physically beautiful to be beautiful to yourself and to other people. If you were to stop these people and ask them if they are happy with the way they look, they would likely tell you that they don’t like this or that about themselves, either.

I’ve struggled with self-image, chronic pain, and depression. Going for 15-30 minute walks, even alone, was how I took my first steps toward a happier and healthier future. It made me stronger in body and in spirit. It will work for you, too, if you make a commitment to yourself and keep it.

James asks…

Thoughts on fat acceptance as a feminist issue? What are your thoughts?

I have been thinking about this topic for a while, let me start by saying I am by no means a hardcore feminist, but some issues do interest me. I started reading into the fat acceptance movement and it got me thinking, and even I have to agree with the points a lot of fat acceptance bloggers make. I know that what you eat and how much you exercise is a personal choice, and should be left at that. I am appalled though by some of the stories of discrimination and poor treatment some people have faced just because of their size whether they be slender or plus sized. Is society really this concerned with how others look? I mean, look at the labels we stick on people who are larger, we think they are lazy, stupid and unhealthy, and these labels seem to be especially hard on women. I hate to admit it, but there have been times I have thought these things about others, but that was when I was in high school. Are adults actually that judgmental and juvenile towards each other? I am concerned because I would hate to gain weight and have people perceive me as lazy for not being rail thin, and reading about this movement has opened my eyes to my own problems with binge eating and extreme diets, and body image.

admin answers:

Fat prejudice is the last socially acceptable prejudice. You can see the attitude in some of your answers.

Women end up bearing the brunt of it more so than men because women are still valued by how conventionally attractive they are.

Despite the fact that there are statistically more overweight men than women, men get a pass on being fat because a man’s worth is more determined by what he achieves and the amount of money they can make.

As a proponent of size acceptance I became much less judgmental of other people’s size when I finally got that I am not solely the size of my body but that it is only one component of who I am. A strong, healthy, artistic woman who happens to be fat.
