  • Why has my car stopped blowing both hot and cold air?

    I have a 2003 PT Cruiser. It has recently completely stopped blowing hot or cold air. If I turn on the AC or defrost, it's just blowing the same temp air back at me as is in my car. I'm in Florida... AC is like, super important. lol.

    Any ideas on what it is and how to fix it?

  • Stubborn puppy, taking forever to house break, suggestions?

    I've had him for about a month and a half now, and he's still not fully potty trained. He can hold his bladder for hours, he does really well over night in his kennel, but during the day he just won't let me know when he has to go.

    I've tried so many different things online, and nothing has worked and everything seems so contradictory.

    Sometimes I'll take him back inside after he pees, and he'll poop right on the floor, even though he was just outside.

    It's really beginning to get frustrating.

    Any tips?

    He is believed to be a whippet or italian greyhound mix, I don't know how those breeds normally do with training.

  • Anyone know where I can find baby Bowser, Link, Yoshi, or Toad costume crochet patterns?

    I have friends who have a baby due in December who really want a cute baby costume, preferably one of of bowser, link, yoshi, or toad (the mushroom guy from mario).

    I have only found a link costume, for knitting... But I don't knit.

    Or if anyone knows where I could possibly have a pattern made? It would really mean a lot to them if I could find something like this!

  • Pest control sprayed for ants, now they're EVERYWHERE?

    Why is that? I had issues with them in the kitchen, so they sprayed along floor boards, under cupboards, back of counters, EVERYWHERE.

    Now the ants are all over, but not where they sprayed. Why is this?

    I'm really getting tired of the ants... But nothing seems to have worked so far.

  • What conditions would low lymphocytes and high red blood cells indicate?

    I've been all over google and can't for the life of me figure this out. My mom just had a CBC done, and all the lab guy could say was the results and to call her doctor because something is wrong, but they couldn't tell what.

    We would really like to know of any possibilities of what could be going on. She was told her lymphocytes were low, but the rest of her CBC was high. I can only find on google what the case could be when lymphocytes are high and the rest low...

  • What are these bugs that came out of a sealed macaroni and cheese packet?

    I was making Macaroni and cheese last week, using an off brand. When I poured the cheese packet into the noodles at the end, there were these tiny pin point sized bugs all over inside the packet!! Since then, I have had an issue with them in my kitchen, but I don't know what they are, so I don't know how to fully take care of them.

    They're tiny, pin point sized black things. They're everywhere!

    I just went through and bleached and cleaned every surface in the kitchen, and I currently don't see any, but they hide.

    I have no clue what they are. I live in Florida if that helps any. I just moved here and am not use to dealing with bugs back home!

  • Rib pain three weeks after breast reduction?

    I had a mammoplasty/ breast reduction done almost three weeks ago and have healed amazingly since then, with very little pain. However, over the last few days I noticed my ribs were hurting and I can't figure out why. I haven't done anything that would have made it start, but it randomly started after virtually no pain. It feels like I cracked a rib or something and it bruised.

    Any ideas on why? My incisions are healed, I haven't had pain meds since a few days after surgery, was back to work 4 days after, and all that. I feel I was lucky, but I want to know why this is suddenly going on.

  • Its been 12 hours since I have had my wisdom teeth removed...?

    Should i still be bleeding this much??? I have one side of my mouth that has completely stopped bleeding, and the other side, one or two of them are still bleeding a pretty good amount. I don't want to call my dentists emergency number if I don't need to, but I'm still spitting up good amounts of bright red blood. I've been putting gauze on there and adding pressure to help it stop, but even after a few hours of constant pressure, the instant I remove the gauze, I start bleeding again. How long should I wait to call my dentist if it keeps bleeding?

  • How can I NOT be upset?

    My step dad went through my room when I was away and threw away everything that was on my desk and dresser, meaning various prescriptions and a few other items are missing. Among these items is something my great grandma made HERSELF back in like, the 70s or 80s. She made a little ceramic dish and lid, and it's just PERFECT. My great grandma passed away 8 years ago and this is one of few things I have left of her.

    My mom knew that he went in and took things, but didn't know what. She told me to try and not be pissed off about things, but I haven't had the chance to tell her that THIS is missing, among other things. How can I NOT be pissed off? This is the only handmade thing I have from my great grandma, I was named after my great grandma, and I miss her constantly. How am I suppose to just brush it off my shoulder and not let him feel like he has won?

  • My parents got mad when I went to Urgent Care for a bad dog bite...?

    Ok, I was petting my step dad's dog, she was happy at first, then suddenely snatched my arm and held on. I pulled it out of her mouth and it was bleeding a lot. Called my dad after I got it bandaged and told him what happened.

    My step dad yelled at me for getting bit, then threw the first aid kit at me and told me to clean it up. After he saw me having issues wrapping my wrist one handed, he came over and angrily did it himself. I went upstairs and put pressure on it and tried to get it to stop bleeding. It bled through the gauze and tape we used. I then called my dad and said "What do I do with this?" because he's a nurse. He said to go to Urgent Care, get it cleaned out and see if stitches were needed. At the very least, I'd most likely need antibiotics to prevent infection.

    So my friend picked me up and I went to Urgent Care. I didn't bother asking my step dad to take me because I knew he wouldn't and my mom was out of town so she couldn't. When I got there, the doctor cleaned it and said that it was just barely below the point of needing stitches so he put three seri stips on it and gave me antibiotics because of how deep it was.

    I called my mom on the way and left her a voice mail saying where I was headed. She called me back later yelling at me for doing that when my step dad told her it wasn't bad. He didn't even look at it at all. Just slapped on some gauze and taped it.

    It then continued to bleed for about 3 hours after she bit me and I got the seri strips from the doctor. I got it to stop temporarily, then it started back up again, but not nearly as bad this time.

    So anyway, my mom is pissed off that I went to urgent care saying it was a waste of money, she just got a check for about 15 grand yet acts like we're hurting with money. She then didn't believe me when I told her EXACTLY what the doctor said. He said that I did need to go in and that it wasn't just a "little" dog bite. Yes, only one tooth went in, but it went alllll the way in. My mom is mad that I took the advice of my dad and the advice nurse for Providence instead of just ignoring it. This isn't the first time she's been mad at me for ignoring an illness/injury. She ignored it when I had a horrible ankle sprain and needed crutches, she ignored it when my face started swelling until I couldn't talk any more and we discovered I had an infection in the bone, she ignored it when I got sick until my throat swelled almost completely shut, and she attempted to ignore it when I broke my collar bone.

    I guess what I'm asking is what do you think about all this? Do you think I should have just stayed home to "wait it out" with this one or was it okay for me to go in and get it checked out. I don't see why things should wait till you're infected or horribly sick before getting them taken care of. She takes care of herself quickly, why can't she do that for her kids too? Any ideas from parents out there as to why this might be? She got mad about "yet another medical bill" when none have been my fault! I had ear infections as a kid all the time, so she had to treat me for those. Have depression, and so I had to be treated for that too. Then there was the broken bones (both collar bones but years apart.) Maybe she's just tired of doing it, but I can't control when I get sick or hurt. You would think this would be the sort of thing she'd expect to have to do at some point in the life of her 4 kids, but I don't know.

  • Anyone know of any illnesses that can cause multiple cysts in dogs?

    I have a German shepard/chow mix, he is about 8 years old and gets numerous cysts. We don't know what causes them, but the vet just says to watch them. Said as long as they're soft and can we can move them, then they're fine. Once they get hard and stop moving they can end up killing him.

    There is nothing we can afford to do for my dog in the event a cyst starts to kill him, but I am really curious as to what type of things would cause these multiple cysts? I found two more today as I was giving him his annual shaving. He has about 5 now, use to have another one but he chewed it off. We had to give him antibiotics and everything because it got infected. It healed and hasn't come back, but it probably is only a matter of time before he starts chewing another one.

  • Causes of missed period other than pregnancy?

    I've been on birth control, that seasonique stuff, for almost a year now, because of irregularity. I haven't been taking it the last two weeks for whatever reason. Have not had sex since quitting the pill, Im not that stupid and don't want a baby. However, since quitting about two weeks ago, I haven't had my period. I am very certain I cannot be pregnant because the pill is not the only form of birth control we use and I make sure to take it every day and around the same time. We also use condoms with spermicidal lube and, yes I know it's not the best form of birth control, but he even pulls out as well. So there really is like, a super super slim chance of ALL forms failing at the same time.

    I've read about stress and weight and stuff like that causing a missed period. But I don't feel Im too overweight or too stressed/anxious or anything like that to have it cause me to miss my period. But I don't know.

    Anyway, here is what happened recently that may have caused it...

    I recently stopped taking antidepressants. I was on Prozac and Abilify and Seroquel (for sleep) I haven't taken any in a while, maybe since mid January.

    I am currently a full time student, but I don't feel I am really too stressed by that.

    Home life isn't the greatest, but it is doable I suppose. I am in a long distance relationship. He lives about 3 hours away and I get to see him every once every few weeks or so. So I guess that could add to the stress?

    My weight isn't the healthiest, but I guess it isn't really the worst either. Im roughly 210 lbs, 5 foot 6 inches. So over weight I know, but would it be enough to cause me to miss my period?

    Also, I started birth control to regulate periods. But since I haven't had one in a few months because of the birth control, I figured I should at least have it now because it isn't like I just had it last month or anything.

    I am going to an OB/GYN in about 2 weeks to get Mirena, and I was told they would do a pregnancy test before that. But I seriously don't think Im pregnant.

    What do you think could be the cause of my not having a period since stopping my birth control aside from being pregnant?
