• Lip is in constant pain after overplaying?

    I play trumpet, and have been practicing heavy for about a week. My bottom lip started to swell and ache about 2 days ago. Since I am in jazz band and marching band, I have had to play, plus I have been playing at home. (My friend lent me their Stradivarius, what do you expect?)

  • Why don't females not find me attractive?

I honestly only live to meet my soulmate, whoever it will be.

    Ever since the middle of May I haven't been able to stop thinking about my best friends sister. I text her almost every day (She lives an hour away) I also text their mother everyday. I suppose I'm pretty close with the family. I have become very obsessed with her, daydream all day about a future with her and drive myself crazy when I can't contact her. When ever I do talk to her, I get mad most often because I always read into everything she says and think she doesn't like me. If you know the story of Amnon and Tamar, I am started to feel like that as Amnon. (I have not raped her though, and will not rape her) I am emotionally drained and need help from this obsession, thanks. -Andrew

I have decided to quit masturbating, as that his driven me away from potential relationships because, well I already got the pleasure from the illusion of her. what else is their to get? So I have felt very nauseated, anxious, worried over nothing, snappy and zero appetite. I figured it was because of the girl, but I have known her forever. If you could help with some cures to ease the pain from this addiction it would be much appreciated.

  • Why are my games on my PC are running much slower?

    I just got back from a trip, and went to play Counter Strike GO. I noticed it had unusual fps dips. This also happened on Call of Juarez gunslinger. These are old titles, but my graphics card can run current games just fine like GTA V and Ark Survival Evolved (Before the issue) What is the cause of my problem?
