Hi! I love to read. I have a beautiful daughter. She is my life!
My third, fourth and fifth fingers on my right hard are killing me. The knuckles (at the base of the fingers) are sore to the touch. They are also causing a jerky motion. For example, my fingers only have two motions: Up and down. there is no in between. There was no trauma to cause this. My joints were hurting the days prior, but I assumed that was associated with my autoimmune disorder. I ve never had my hand/fingers/knuckles to this before. Any ideas?2 AnswersPain & Pain Management6 years ago
For the last month or so, I have been experiencing electrical shocks throughout my body. It originally started in my head (kinda behind my eyes). It gradually got worse, spreading to my face, then my chest, then all the way to my fingers, and now affects my whole body.
I had been taking Celexa for anxiety for about 6 months but it was causing weight gain. My doctor decided to switch me to Wellbutrin. I cut my dose of Celexa in half for a week while taking half a dose of Wellbutrin. Once the Celexa was done, I switched to the full dose of Wellbutrin. My symptoms started about a week after stopping the celexa. I was on the Wellbutrin for close to a month. The shocking has been getting progressively worse. I finally called my doc a week and a half ago. She recommended I stop taking the Wellburtin (took half a dose for 5 days, then stopped). My symptoms have continued to get worse.
If I move my eyes to the left or right, move my head, move too quickly, I get shocked. Over the weekend, I got a sudden shock that made me see double and my legs buckled. I've tried to get in touch with my doc since last Wednesday (a week now) with no response. Not sure why or what's going on. I'm planning on just making an appt to see her next week.
Until then, any idea what's going on with me? I know that stopping SSRIs can cause these symptoms, but if it was the meds, is it normal for it to get worse before it gets better? Could it be something else?Other - Health6 years ago
I want to buy a new car (Ford Fiesta) but can't find one locally that isn't fully decked out (and pricey). I don't want/need all those extra features and don't want to pay for it. I haven't had a chance to actually go to the dealer and ask (won't be able to do that for a week and a half), so I'm asking here. Does it cost extra (and is it even possible) to get a car with only the specs I want to be delivered? Any advice on maybe finding what I'm looking for?2 AnswersBuying & Selling7 years ago
I am trying to make a photo book for a Christmas present but am having a really difficult time with it. Every picture I put in the book says it has low resolution. I was using pics from facebook but was told that was a bad idea...so now I am using the pictures directly from the camera, but it still shows low resolution. I used photoshop to crop pics and make the quality better and play with the size, but still no luck. I've tried making the pics in the book smaller...still has low resolution. What can I do to fix that?? I've called Walmart but they are absolutely no help at all.2 AnswersPhotography7 years ago
I looked up somebody I know on the sex offender registry and noticed that is says Custody/supervision: TERMINATED. His offense was 948.02(2): Second-Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, which I looked up and I think means he had sex with a child under the age of 13 (he was around 20 at the time it happened). Does this mean he is not allowed to have children (meaning he can't live in the same house with them)?4 AnswersLaw & Ethics8 years ago
This is gross and I am embarrassed for even asking, but I just passed a pretty large blood clot (I measured-it was 2 inches in diameter). I am on the third day. I have had smaller clots in the past, but not regularly and never anywhere near this large. My lower back has been killing me all day, I'm cramping, and I've been sleepy and lethargic the last 2 days, and it is getting worse. I have a pretty heavy flow (using a tampon and a pad at the same time because it is coming out so fast, and changing every hour or two). I've always had heavy periods, and they are irregular and tend to last 14 days or more, but that clot really worried me. I am calling my doc on Tuesday (the office isn't open on Mondays), but I am wondering if I should be concerned.
Anybody else have experience with large clots? Is that normal? I am almost 30, so I feel kind of stupid having to ask, but this is something new for me and it really scared me when I saw that clot...reminded me of a small placenta. It was grey in color, not red like the other clots I've had.

It can't be anything controversial (no gay marriage, gun control, marijuana, abortion, etc). I would like to do something a bit more fun and interesting, but it has to be a good topic (can't be why my favorite TV shows is the best show ever, etc). It will be a 10 minute speech and a minimum of 7 references, so it has to be something I can actually research and talk about. And, it is a powerpoint presentation, so it should be something that I can put pictures with. I've been searching the internet for days and can't find anything good. Subjects are either too controversial or too silly. Any suggests would be greatly appreciated!!1 AnswerHomework Help8 years ago
My mom works in a hospital. The other day, she passed out at work and was taken to the ER. She has had an ongoing problem with getting lightheaded and is under medical care by several physicians while they try to figure out what is wrong. It is suspected that she is having TIAs (mini-strokes).
According to work policy, after so many absences, you are written up and suspended for 3 days without pay. Well, her boss just told her she is now written up and must take 3 days off without pay. My mom explained that she is in the process of filing for intermittent FMLA for this ongoing problem, but the boss just told her that until the paperwork is in and approved, she is still under disciplinary action. The people in HR act like they don't know what the policy is.
What can she do to fight this? Am I wrong in thinking that any disciplinary action must be put on hold until the paperwork is either approved or denied? She is freaking out about having 3 days off with no pay, and with her health, she really needs to try to remain calm. What should we do to fix this??

I am writing a paper on endometriosis and need some good sites to get my info from. They have to be scholarly articles. They can't be patient information articles.
I am having a tough time finding any good information. I tried google scholar, but they want you to pay for the full article, and I'm certainly not going to pay for information for a school paper. Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I make several different items (from cat toys to hot/cold compresses to hot pads). I do have a listing on etsy.com (though it is only a few days old and haven't sold anything yet). I have put my items on facebook and craigslist, but no bites as of yet. Any ideas of where else I can advertise? How can I get my name out there and promote myself? Anybody else sell on etsy and have some advice for somebody just starting out?

I am going to be doing an internship for school and will need an occasional babysitter for my 7 year old daughter. I have tried care.com and sittercity.com, which are both great sites...but they charge a fee to contact the sitters, and I am extremely limited on funds. I am also new to my area, don't have a job, and am taking my classes online, so I know absolutely nobody in town. I am hesitant to use craigslist to find somebody to watch my child. Any ideas of where to look?? Thanks!

I have a dell laptop computer with Windows 7 on it, about a year and a half old. When I turned it on this morning, the desktop came up, but nothing would open or respond. After a few minutes, a message popped up saying "the application microsoft windows is not responding." The screen then goes completely blue. It will do that every time I turn the computer on.
I am currently in safe mode, which seems to work fine. I ran a couple of antivirus programs and nothing was found. What in the world is wrong with my computer and how do I fix it?!?1 AnswerSoftware9 years ago
With the new KH game coming out, I would like to get caught up on the storyline. I have played almost all the games, but it has been so long that I can't remember the storyline. Plus, the storyline is rather confusing. Can somebody give me the rundown on what has happened so far so I am up to date when the new game comes out next month?
I have looked online and haven't been able to find anything that says, simply, Sora was on an island, got transported, fought the heartless, etc. I need to know what happened at the beginning and end of all the games (such as where Riku went, Kairi, who the bad guys are and why, etc).

I am wanting to make a braided rug. I have done a lot of research and have patterns, know how to do a few different braids, etc.
The trouble I am having is deciding what kind of material to use. I know most people use scraps. I have some old clothes I can cut up, but what material is best? I have mostly old cotton t-shirts. Would that work? Do jeans work? Or should I just buy some sort of material at the store? Any recommendations??5 AnswersDecorating & Remodeling9 years ago
I am wanting to get started making crafts -- nothing too technical or complicated. I need a sewing machine. It should be under $200, and I'd prefer a new one. I've been looking on Amazon, but there are so many to choose from.
I have worked with sewing machines before, though it has been a while.
I need it to do buttons and zippers and at least a few different stitches.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks!!3 AnswersHobbies & Crafts9 years ago
I am in desperate need of extra money. I was thinking of making things to sell, but am having trouble coming up with ideas. I have a good sewing machine and can follow patterns. Would anybody be interested in buying baby doll clothes, or should I go in another direction? I would appreciate any ideas on things I can make with a sewing machine to sell, or other things I can make--I'm just not good with crocheting.

My mom is wanting a new car and saw a nice looking 2003 Chevy Malibu (111,000 miles). The dealer said it gets over 30 MPG, but after looking on the internet, all I can see is that it gets up to 28 hwy, only 21 combined.
It is a v 6 engine. She was also looking at a 2009 Chevy Cobalt (56,000 miles), which is supposed to get great mileage, but I heard it won't last as long.
Any advice would be great. Both cars are in excellent condition and priced below blue book value. We are just worried about miles per gallon (she drives about 25 miles each way to work). Which car would be better in the long run?4 AnswersChevrolet9 years ago
My computer has been slow recently and is getting worse. Yesterday, I did a search for something and when I clicked on a link, I was redirected to a spam site. Now, I have to click a link multiple times before being able to actually get to the site I want--it keeps redirecting me.
So, I know I have a virus. I went through and deleted all the programs and applications I'm not using (in the add/remove programs). I downloaded Spybot S&D and ran it. I also downloaded AVG and ran it. They both found a few things and removed them (one was a trojan).
I ran them again in safe mode, then again in regular mode and neither are finding anything now. However, the problem is persisting and getting worse!!
What can I do to get rid of whatever is on my computer? Any other anti-virus programs I can try? I'm getting really frustrated. Thanks!5 AnswersSecurity9 years ago
