I'm a 16 year old girl who is 5'3" and 121 pounds. I've always been super insecure about my weight and appearance and I'm sick of being fat, so I'd like to drop to about 95 pounds.
My main diet plan at the moment is to just watch my carbs/sugars and eat about 900-1000 calories a day, but I thought of this diet and thought it could help me lose a lot of weight.
It has enough protein and fiber to get me by, and I do take calcium supplements.
Could I try this out? Do you think it'll work?8 AnswersDiet & Fitness1 year ago
I dropped my chromebook and now the screen is messed up. Can this be fixed and how much will it cost?
I accidentally knocked my chromebook off of my bed today and after opening it I could see the display was all messed up. The glass isnt broken but there's an area where I dropped it where there's a splotch and a bunch of colored lines (see the picture).
If I press on the back of my chromebook where it fell, the colors get worse and my display gets more funky.
I've had my chromebook for about two years and I'm not sure if I have the paperwork for it anymore. So if this can be fixed, how much will it cost? And how can I fix this issue?3 AnswersMonitors1 year ago
One year ago, during a music trip, my roommate sexually assaulted me several times and once pulled a knife on me. I was 15 at the time and so was she. I never said anything to my family because I am pansexual but in the closet, and I don't want them to know that their little girl was hurt. After the incident, I was very closed off and touchy. I did not let anyone touch me for a few months and the trauma from the event, combined with a history of mental illness, resulted in a suicide attempt and a relapse in my depression and anxiety.
I attempted to go on another choir trip a few days ago but was forced to go home early because I kept reliving the attacks and I began to suffer panic attacks again after nearly 4 months of doing well. This makes me believe I could possibly have mild PTSD from the incident, but because I have never talked to a doctor about it, I obviously can't be sure. My counselors know of the incident but the police or my relatives were never informed.

I am a 16 year old girl who is 5'3" and currently 125 pounds. At the beginning of September of 2018, I was 135. So I have already lost about 10 pounds over the course of three months through increased exercise and reduced snacking.
However, I'm going to Hawaii in late February and I'd like to get down to about 110. I calculated my body fat percentage and found that it was about 27 percent. I definitely want a slimmer stomach and skinnier legs.
I've been taking up dancing and such, which makes me break a sweat. On average, I do it for about an hour about two times a week. I also do some exercise in my P.E. class but I'm leaving that class at the end of January.
I've been looking at a 900-1000 calorie diet. Would this be beneficial to help me lose the weight by then?

This is the second night in a row that I have naturally woken up at 3. As someone who is invested in her sophomore year in high school and is playing a lead role in the school musical, you can imagine how frustrating this is for me.

My bestest friend in the world, who I will call Liam, is an avid runner. He's on the varsity cross country/track teams and his average mile is about 5:10. He's considered to be one of the best athletes in the school.
But, like everyone else, he has secrets. At a young age, he was diagnosed with mild Aspergers. He's struggled with severe anxiety and depression for years, and when he was 12, he tried to take his life.
I've known him since he was 14, and we're pretty much like peas and carrots. We tell each other practically everything. But something I've noticed that he's reluctant to talk about is his weight.
He's very skinny. Like, 5'8" and 110 pounds skinny.
Sometimes, Liam talks about how he hasn't eaten for several days but shrugs it off because "I'm fat, I need to lose weight anyways." He is secretive about his eating habits, and just becomes really withdrawn at times. I really worry about him because he's so thin but I don't know how to ask him about this.

So yesterday, while I was getting in the car, I hit my "knee funny bone" (yes, I'm aware that there is no ulnar nerve in the knee but that's the closest analogy I can think of). It was extremely painful, sending me into my friend's lap for a good minute or so while I composed myself.
I was sitting for a good twenty minutes in the car, and when I got out, my knee practically buckled beneath me.
For about ten minutes I walked around the house, feeling tenderness and pain on my knee. It intensified when I put pressure on it, but even after elevating/icing it and taking some painkillers, it still hurt pretty bad.
I woke up this morning with a very small but noticeable bruise on my kneecap. But the pain was everywhere around it as well.
I can honestly barely walk, and I have no idea what to do, because I cannot miss school right now. Why is my knee hurting so bad? Is it a minor or serious injury?1 AnswerInjuries2 years ago
To put things simply, my father is a very heavy drinker. His addiction has torn apart our family and led to fights and infidelity.
My brother turned 21 earlier this month, and immediately celebrated with a drink. That's fine, of course. It's probably what I'll do when I hit that milestone as well.
It's been a few weeks since his birthday, and he drinks two beers a day now. All he talks about is alcohol. He makes it a priority to always stop at the store and get beer. And when I asked him why he drank so much and told him I was worried he could turn out like our father, he got annoyed and told me that beer is good for you. (I know that it does have some health benefits, but it also has some infamous negative effects as well. Just like fast food.)
Is he going down the wrong path? I'm just really worried about him. I already lost my father to alcoholism. I can't lose him too.3 AnswersFamily2 years ago
Because of nonstop drama performances, community service, etc. I was unable to shower for, embarrassingly, three days. I had some pain near my anal area yesterday but didn't really think much of it, I just figured I had a bad bowel movement or something. This morning when I showered, I noticed a lump on the wall of my anus which seemed to be the source of my pain. It itches, but I'm not messing with it. Mostly just clenching because that makes it feel better. Passing gas also provides some relief.
I'm a 15 year old girl...what's going on? It's a bit embarrassing. I asked my mom about it and she said it was probably a swollen gland. Is that it?
Edit: It's Monday, I originally posted this on Sunday. The lump hasn't gone away, and I threw up mostly water this morning, so I had to leave school. I think it was an anxiety attack but could it be linked to the lump?2 AnswersOther - Diseases3 years ago
So my friend got a text from the wrong number, saying stuff like "Hey honey, are you asleep at home? Or at Ray's? It's okay if you're with him right now. I'm not sure where you are but please answer me. I love you." So because we're idiots, we responded with some puns and jokes. The person said "Melissa, this isn't funny. I'm worried sick. Answer me. Please." So we freaked, and she answered with "I'm so sorry but you have the wrong number. I was trying to just pull a prank. Which wasn't okay. I am so, so sorry. I really hope you find Melissa soon." But this person wasn't having it. They said that "Cut it out. Where are you? I'm f**king sick of you hanging out with John and doing drugs and s**t. Do we need to get the police involved?" The person called my friend but she was AFK when they called. So they texted us again, saying "I'm calling the sheriff now. We are going to have quite the talk when I see you." My friend repeatedly tried to tell them they had the wrong number but they won't answer us. What the hell are we supposed to do?3 AnswersFriends3 years ago
I'm writing a story where a side character commits suicide and I want to know if it is plausible at all.
It's a hot summer day. Every year, their family buys an inflatable pool for their dogs to play in and to maybe just chill out in. You know, sip some wine, read, relax. The character takes about five to ten Benadryl to really knock themselves out, and then they sort of just float in the pool and wait to fall asleep. When they do fall asleep, assuming no one finds them, they will peacefully drown in their sleep and die that way.
Would this work? Thank you4 AnswersBooks & Authors3 years ago

About a week ago, I started feeling ill. I got bloated. Nauseated. I felt like I was going to puke at any given time but I never did. Like, I'd feel the bile in my throat but I never vomited. I kept getting chills. I have no fever. I still feel this way but idk what to do. I'm a 15 year old girl. I take Aviane, Prozac, Allegra, and Minocyclene. I've been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and panic disorder. I feel more ill if I'm near other people and feel a bit better alone. I'm actually writing this in the school bathrooms because I felt really, really bad at lunch and during class. I have a counseling appointment at 2 and I leave school at 1:30 for it. It is 12:30 right now. Then, I have drama rehearsals until 6. What should I do? Why do I feel this way?3 AnswersMental Health3 years ago
So during lunch today, someone tried to flash lasers in my eyes from across the cafetera, about 50 feet maybe. At the time, I felt a bit disoriented and my vision was effed up for a few seconds. Then, they walked right up to me and tried it again, but the effects weren't as bad. The person left. It's been an hour and my eyes feel dry and sore. I had to lower my screen brightness to type this because the brightness made the pain worse. I don't want to say anything about it, but what should I do to make my eyes stop hurting?
