  • Mom sleep deprived; affecting moods/emotions..?

She works 7pm-7am 3 nights a week and is attending CNA classes everyday from 12noon-4pm. She gets home from work around 8 am and usually gets up 10am or 11am.

    How do I get my 54 year old mother to understand that she's going to end up in the hospital if she keeps this up?! She works 7pm-7am 3 nights a week and is attending CNA classes everyday from 12noon-4pm. She gets home from work around 8 am and usually gets up 10am or 11am. She HARDLY sleeps, and it's reflected in her attitudes/mood swings. First of all, I'm 18 and about to leave for college. Right now, I'm kinda running the house and taking care of my 8 year old sister. The woman is slowly driving me crazy. She screams and yells about EVERYTHING and accuses me of trying to "taunt her" when I suggest she should sleep. Are you kidding me? So, basically, I'm ready to lose it and I need help before she ends up in the hospital. I almost stayed at community college because I'm afraid to leave my Dad & sister alone without me running everything because I feel like all they'll do is fight all the time and nothing will get done. However, a large scholarship is allowing me to follow my heart and break free from being "Mom" as I am right now. How do I start to help? Idk what to do, and our family (as well as her marriage) is falling apart because of her sleep deprivation. Please help me.

  • In Italy, is there a demand for English teachers?

    I'm from the Chicago area and will be entering college in the fall. I've had Spanish since I was in 2nd grade, but will be learning Italian at my university.

  • Ex-boyfriend now wishes to "be friends" and talk throughout college?

    Ok, Yahoo crew. I need serious, honest help. It's a long story, so I'll try to make it brief. I was 17, he was 16, and we were freaking crazy about eachother. It was insane. Definitely my "first love". So, one day after our 8 month, I find out he kissed some chick at a party and I immediately broke up with him bc that's the one thing I said I would never stand for. First of all, I'd had a lot of other crap going on in my life at that point including panic issues and depression.. (home life issues). He was a narcissistic ******. Then again, he was 17 when that went down. So. -.- ANYWAY, I was crushed & broken beyond my wildest imaginitive abilities. I was a stupid teenager. I had just turned 18 and somehow thought we'd "last". LOL! We had so many quirky things in common that I don't think I'll ever find again. But that's life. Since the breakup, he's become a totally different person... He cut his hair, got "hipster glasses" (good God...rofl.....), and started hanging out with younger people. Talking to him is weird because it somehow seems like his IQ has dropped. I don't even know this kid anymore....? So, here I am about to graduate in a week. A few nights ago I came home to EIGHT Facebook messages from him. EIGHT FREAKING MESSAGES. He proceeds to tell me how much he'll miss me and a list of 10 things he adores about me....after not speaking for 6 months..... My immediate gut response was "What does he want from me?". Because, you see, after going through 6 months of idiotic teen angst and emotional basket-weaving (lol!), I simply no longer give a flying rat's @ss. I can finally see how terribly he treated me, how he treats his friends & fam, and how unmotivated he is. But here he is pouring his heart out and I don't know what parts are bullsh!t and what's true! Now for the heart of the issue: As much as I find him to be of poor character & judgment, I will always find him attractive somehow and enjoy his personality. I wish we could be friends, but, I just don't know if it's a good idea... I find myself entertaining throughts of things working out, and I don't think that's healthy. I don't want to cut him out, but now he wants to "Facebook message" me throughout college. (He's a Junior in high school. Soon to be Senior.) So... Any advice out there? Do you befriend the ex-boy"fiend"??

  • Will I ever get over being cheated on?

    He was my 2nd boyfriend. He was 16 and I was 17 when we started dating. I've never been one to believe young love lasts I suppose, but I also didn't believe it would end the way it did.

    He was my 2nd boyfriend. He was 16 and I was 17 when we started dating. I've never been one to believe young love lasts I suppose, but I also didn't believe it would end the way it did. Especially with him. He was everything I'd ever hoped for in someone else, and it scared me that we were so young & stupid. I always had a nagging fear in the back of my mind that he would cheat on me, but he swore up and down he never would. People said he seemed to worship the ground I walked on and they'd never seen him act that way with someone. He always told people, "She's a good girl." and that he was finally dating someone he really cared about. So, I let my intuition/paranoia go. I chalked it up to a lifetime of being teased when I was younger because I had been "the fat kid". As I'd grown into a young woman, I didn't resemble that girl at all anymore. I couldn't recognize my own beauty and constantly told myself how worthless & imperfect I thought I was. I can honestly say I was in love with him, though I hesitate to say that because people assume young people cannot. We dated for 8 months.. Everything had seemed fine I suppose... I don't know anymore. By then I was 18 and he was 17. One Saturday night after work I had a terrible stomach ache. I couldn't figure out why. The next day (Sunday), when I got home from hanging out with him ALL THAT DAY, I went on Facebook and read a message from some girl stating that the night before he'd kissed her at a party.... Now, I called him as soon as I read it. He just burst into tears. I started swearing at him like I'd never sworn before. I TOLD HIM that the ONE THING I'd never stand for was cheating. That night they were supposed to be having "band practice"...it turned into a party. The girl was apparently making out with everyone and he CLAIMS he kept telling her to stop and she wouldn't leave him alone, so he relented. -.- sure. The reason a kiss is such a big deal is that it's all I ever did. I am keeping my virginity til marriage. That's why it hurt me so freaking much. He always swore he didn't need anything else and that he agreed with me. It's clear to me now that he was incredibly immature. He never attempted to get his license, thought his punk band would be famous, and never got a job. The list goes on and on, but long story short, I can't get over him. Even though I broke it off straight away, I still miss him. I was in love with the person I thought he was, NOT WHO HE IS. Somehow I can't make myself remember that. HE was the one who never tried to fix anything. He KNEW the trust issues I already had and STILL didn't even attempt to make amends. We had so much in common and he knew what I was thinking without me ever saying a thing. I don't know if I'll ever find that again. I am embarassed, humiliated, confused, and feel completely used and worthless. I doubt he ever would have told me. It's been 2 months and I still find myself crying about it when no one's around. I put on such a brave face for everyone and preten I'm fine. Despite knowing we're young and that we want completely different things out of life, I can't let him go yet. I want to. I want to want someone else. Will I ever heal? How do I get over this? Thanks if you made it through all that. Please, no dumb answers. This hurts to talk about, no matter how stupid you may think it is.

I'll be a Senior, he'll be a Junior. We started dating nearly 6 months ago. We're both thinkers, highly value intelligence, are musicians, love to read, cook, talk.... We're also very into psychology. I'm an INFJ, he turned out to be an ENTP.... which is ironically a supposed "complimentary match"...lol! Anyway, we both value relationships seriously. He's a very loyal person, and very straightforward. NO bs. Something I love about him.. Anyway, he's always been very affectionate with hugs & kisses..loves to cuddle... But it's not in a childish way. I can't really describe him. I always forget he's 16. He's... different. We've never had sex. Both of us have always wanted to save that for 1 person. Anyway, recently we were talking and he said things like "you know, i wish i could just sleep with you...not have sex....just...be with you like that." and "i don't get it, but, somehow you've gotten even more attractive to me! like... you're more beautiful than ever and idk what it is!!! it's crazy..." and like i said, he doesn't just say crap like that. he's painfully honest. he's even accidentally said things like "when we're marri---i mean.....if......um......" multiple times and then apologized bc he didn't want to scare me off... it never does obviously. I've never felt this way about someone. I can never get enough kisses from him or just sit with him long enough. We never run out of things to say. I miss him the moment I leave. I'm just skeptical... We're so young, and ik we have life to live, but isn't there some grain of hope that this isn't just a stupid teenage thing? it doesn't feel like that this time. I'm afraid to call it "love" because tons of stupid kids do... We've even talked about how it would work if we went to different colleges. Idk... maybe we're just idealists? Are we too young to be in love? It hurts to think so...

    Hello. I've been going through episodes of what I now know to be panic attacks for over a year now. I used to just get nauseous or not be able to breathe. Gradually, it progressed to having a "weight" on my chest, dizzyness, sweating, shaking, and me feeling the need to escape from ....well...something. Wasn't sure what it was, but I felt like I was dying. I've been miserable. I also began having suicidal thoughts out of nowhere. This is all largely uncharacteristic for me, and I was too embarrassed to seek help. I'm a perfectionist and didn't want to lose my pride... Here's a girl who's about to become a senior in high school with a 4.0, classical piano training under her belt, 2 jobs, and amazing friends... I didn't want to be seen as "the psycho" who needs to see shrink. I'd already seen one before. Didn't help. After my Nani's (grandma's) death, things just kept getting worse. Life was spiraling out of control. Sleeplessness, weight loss (30 lbs!), and mood swings finally made my incredible boyfriend pull me aside & make me get help again. So, I did last week. Diagnosed with a panic disorder and minor depression. What are some steps I can take towards controlling these attacks b4 I start seeing someone once a month? That's all I can afford on my own as my parents can't help...too many expenses right now. Thanks a million if you read all that. Blessings -Indie G

She's friendly, considerate, the whole thing. However, she's like obsessed with my little sister. I'm 17 and she's 7. I've always been able to spend some time with her when I'm home from school and not working. Well, now all she does is hang out with this girl. I really want my sister back. Sounds selfish, I don't really care. She has a sister in China she says she thinks is weird b/c she likes black and plays with trucks. My sis is a total girly girl like her. (Gotta say, I think i'd get along quite well with trucker girl.) Anyway, she even takes tons of pics with her. Here I thought maybe I'd gain a friend this time and instead I lost a sister. Her great manners also make me feel like my parents might as well adopt her and send me away. I'm just tired of being the one with all the responsibilities and work and then just have some other kid slip into the spot I used to have in my familiy. but she's so great & i'm not like "mad" at her...just.... Feeling alone in my own house. Thanks for any advice. ~Indie G
