Sorrow Like Smiles
I was never diagnosed as I really don't have the money to see a psychologist. I did, however, take multiple screening tests online (from various sites, which I felt would be the most reliable). I don't know how reliable they may be but I scored quite high.
People at work have noticed my tendencies for boredum/mind wandering/lack of focus.
I feel whatever I have is severely affecting my personal life in many ways.
Now my questions are:
What does everyone do to ease the effects?
I have a son who is almost 2, what are the chances of him getting it? Will me having it affect his learning?
Does ADD normally go hand in hand with laziness (I have noticed a great lack of motivation in the past years)?

Please help me with this. My RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) has become unbearable.
It takes forever to fall asleep.
I have tried:
Putting my legs on a pillow (doesn't work)
Massaging my legs (Nothing)
Moving them around (Helps to relieve the pain... but it starts again as soon as I lie still.)
AM I missing something in my diet? What is causing this? It is absolutely driving me insane... Even now as I write this.. my legs feel as though I am wearing really tight socks pulled up to my knees.4 AnswersPain & Pain Management1 decade ago

For some reason my male cat seems to be larger than any other cat I've ever had. He is almost a year old and he weighs... I'd say about 17lbs if not more. People are always amazed about how big him and his brother are. Is it normal for a cat to be this big?
The picture shows him on my couch arm. It is a big couch, just to put it in perspective. He's my big beautiful moose. haha.11 AnswersCats1 decade ago
Is there anyone else out there that avidly hunts ghosts?
For some reason, when my friends and I do any ghosthunting of any sort, if I am not around... nothing ever happens. I do alot of EVP and get all sorts of voices. However, when my sister did it alone, she played back and got nothing.
I've been told before that I am a "portal". Is there such thing? Would there be a reason that spirits are drawn to me?
I don't understand. Even when I used to Ouija Board with my friends, if I wasn't touching it. The planchette would sit motionless. Am I, perhaps, creating these "illusions"?
Are they attracted to me because I am obsessed with death?

Ok, I work as a dog bather/groomer and I have noticed that ALOT of people with male dogs: Get their dogs nails painted (often girly colors), Have pink collars/harnesses for them, and sometimes even have sissy names for them.
My question is. Why don't they just buy girl dogs in the first place? I think it is really sad that they are treating male dogs like the opposite sex.
What is the logic in that?

Ok so a friend of mine, whom i've known for over 20 years (we basically grew up together), is in town for a few days from California. I haven't seen the guy in over 3 years.
I went to a graduation party for his sisters and I told him that he needs to come and see my house. Cause he has never seen it before.. Well anyway.. when I got home. I told my boyfriend about it, and he flipped out saying that he doesn't see the point in me having any contact with him. He acts like I can't have friends because for some reason he thinks they are worthless.
Is this unfair? What would you do? Don't I have every right to see this guy since I've known him all my life... I can't just toss a friendship like that out the window. And my bf doesn't understand how important it is to me... ( I don't have many friends and I really try to keep the few that I have...unlike him, it makes me feel wanted having friends around ).2 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
I wrote this poem about a friend of mine who died far too early.
If I could write.
This pen would draw.
If I could sing.
My voice would play.
How much I miss you.
More and more each day.
If I could whisper.
My breath would sigh.
After every question.
An unanswered why.
If I could feel.
My hand would reach.
Below the stone.
My arms beseech.
If I could cry.
There’d be a million tears.
For all this love.
After all these years.
If I could die.
My soul would sleep.
No more sorrow.
No longer to weep.3 AnswersPoetry1 decade ago
Does this sound ok? I wrote it when I discovered that I was falling in love with someone while I was trying to get over another.
A secret is,
A concealed disguise.
Unseen and hidden,
From prying eyes.
A secret is,
What’s under wraps.
Unexpressed, as times elapse.
A secret is,
A cryptic note.
Obscure to all,
Except the ones who wrote.
A secret is,
Shrouded in shadows,
Afraid of the spurn.
A secret is,
No longer strange.
Accept the truth,
Without a change.
The truth is,
With a certain validity,
To “I love you”.2 AnswersPoetry1 decade ago
I enjoy taking pictures of abandoned houses. I know I'm not the only one. If you do, could you provide me links to your work? Or let me know if you know of any around the Midwest.

Why the heck do they put a delete option on Windows trashbin. Instead of 'empty recycle bin', for some odd reason, I always click 'delete' instead. hahaha is there something wrong with me?
My brain just registers delete only. I always overlook empty recycle bin, even though it is listed first.

I have a 19 month old.
So my question is... What is your opinion on letting your child learning the consquences of his/her actions. I usually let my son learn what he can and can't do by letting him whereever in the house and letting him know that he can't go/ or mess with certain things by telling him so.
My boyfriend/his biological father on the other hand, gets upset when I let him roam and he gets mad at me when my son gets into stuff saying it's my fault.. it always seems like he would rather lock him in one room with a baby gate all day.
Is it just me or his the wrong way for going about things? I'd rather have my son know what he can and can't play with earlier in life rather than later, am I right?
He won't learn that by being locked up.. yeah?4 AnswersToddler & Preschooler1 decade ago
I was curious if any of you knew what it meant to have nightmares all the time. I don't think a night goes by without me dreaming something that is sometimes really upsetting.
Most of the time my dreams include:
murder, suicide, zombies, ghosts, and just really horrifying stuff. I've been known to wake up sobbing.

My 18 month old has eczema (poor boy got it from me). My doctor has prescribed me Elidel which works wonders whenever he can't reach to itch. If I keep him in feety jammies his skin heals wonderfully all EXCEPT for his hands which he can itch. I've tried keeping his nails short and then he just rubs his hands on my carpet to itch them.
Is there anyway I can remedy this situation.. His hands look awful. I'm embarrased taking him out anywhere as it looks like I just don't care.
I've lost alot of sleep over this.. and alot of patience to the point that I blame myself for his suffering.
Please tell me I am not the only one. (I do know how he feels as when I get outbreaks.. I can't stop itching almost to the point of bleeding... and if I can't stop.. then how can I have the hope to stop an 18 month old)6 AnswersToddler & Preschooler1 decade ago
You may not remember, Or maybe you don't care
But I really loved you, And that's why I'm standing here
You can't see the tears I cry, But I hope that you shall hear
There are things I need to say, That have been waiting year after year
I never got to tell you, Just how much I cared
Now, As I kneel here, Things are just as I had feared
I never thought I'd miss the chance, I had all the time in the world
I didn't see it coming, As my past became unfurled
I saw you in a dream, Telling me things would be alright
I wish I would've known, That you were to die that night
I would've held you in my arms, As I'd wanted in the past
But everything is done now, My world is spinning fast
I wish I knew your thoughts, I wish I knew it all
I remember our words, That night, I do recall
I should've said it then, Instead of crying now
However hard, I'll try, If Death shall even allow
So here's to you my friend, Unless my time is nigh
I shall say Hello, Since there was never a goodbye4 AnswersPoetry1 decade ago
My cat just gave birth 3 days ago and I rushed her to the vet cause she was panting. They had to spay her due to an infection in her uterus.
We are lucky enough to have a lactating queen that is feeding our kittens for the time being..
What I wanted to know is if anyone else has had this happen.. and how likely is it for my queens milk to dry up?
My vet said that it happens in some and others still produce milk.
Please. Any advice?1 AnswerCats1 decade ago
