  • I want attention from boys but I don't want a relationship?

    I broke up with my boyfriend a few months ago and ever since, I've wanted attention from boys. My ex made my self esteem really low (I actually became bulimic while dating him but I got help and that is over now). I'm in high school and I don't want to get into another relationship right now because I want to recoup but I really like getting attention. Is this normal? I flirt with them a little but once I get the feeling that they seriously do like me I try to back off a little because I don't want to hurt them. Even with my guy friends I flirt a lot until they get a crush on a girl. Then I immediately stop and let them be and if they have a girlfriend then I don't mess with that. Once again, is this normal? Thanks.

  • One of my breasts is much larger than the other?

    My right breast is a b cup or a small c but my left breast is a DD. My left breast also hurts really really badly quite often where as my right, the smaller of the two, NEVER hurts at all. Should I be worried? I'm 17.

    I try to wear a D cup bra and stuff one side but my left pops out of the cup towards the top. I'm very embarrassed about it because I think it is very noticeable and the other day my friends made fun of me for them being different sizes even though I was wearing a bra.

    Also do you know of any stores or online sites where I can buy bras which have different cup sizes but look like the same ones (so I'd get a DD on one side and a C on the other except have them both look like DDs?

    Thank you!

  • What should I do about prom?

    I know that this will probably sound petty but even though this shouldn't be bugging me it really really is.

    Okay, so I really didn't want to go to prom this year (it's my junior year) because I broke up with my boyfriend a few months ago and didn't want to go alone. I'd be going with my two best friends, one of which would be going with her boyfriend and me and the other one would be going together because we are both single. All of a sudden the boy who has had a crush on her asked her to prom randomly and I'm going to be the only one who is single. This isn't just out of the three of us either -- all of my friends have dates and the ones who don't just aren't going because it is extremely couple oriented. I really don't want to go anymore but I know that I can't just not go because my friends would be upset with me or think that I'm being really dramatic (which I guess is sort of true. I just don't want to be the only one who is going alone). I don't know what I should do. I don't even know what this question really is asking. I guess I just needed to get that out to somebody because I don't know who I can really vent to about this. I guess if any of you have any suggestions for anything feel free to answer. Thanks for listening.

  • Would this help me or hurt me?

    About a year ago I started cutting myself and when I did it, I'd listen to music just because, well, it's music. There were a few songs that I listened to, but there were two in particular that I always had playing. Ever since then whenever I hear either one of those songs it links directly to me cutting myself. I want to break the connection between me cutting myself and those two songs because I really really like them but can't listen to them without having a massive urge to cut. I haven't cut myself in quite a while and when I do, it isn't as bad as it used to be -- I'm working on getting better.

    Anyways, should I keep listening to these songs over and over again until the feeling goes away? I don't want to avoid them anymore. Will this help me out or will it end up hurting me?

  • why was my vomit black?

    So I didn't really eat much today because I was really busy and didn't think about it much. At work I took two pain meds because my knee really hurt. This happened around an hour after I had a peanut butter and apple sandwich (the second thing I ate that day, the first being a yogurt at least 5 hours beforehand. All night I had been drinking a ton of water to try to hold me over but it didn't reallly work. By the end of the night I was so hungry and having such bad hunger pangs that I was incredibly nauseas. I actually had to sprint to the bathroom while I was in the middle of doing something and I projectile vomited into the toilet twice. Both times the vomit was very black and kinda grainy around the edges. I guess like coffee grounds. Nothing I ate today was black, either. Afterwards I felt extremely weak. I was sort of shaking and zoning out (I became super tired all of a sudden). The night at work was very stressful for me, too. I also was very active all night. Any ideas?

  • I need an opinion on whether to join GSDA or not?

    So, it's going to be the start of another school year and seeing how I'm almost done with high school, I want to join some clubs. One of the ones I've wanted to join for quite a while now is GSDA, or the Gay-Straight-Diverse Alliance. The thing is, I strongly believe in the message behind this group and while I want to join, there are some problems.

    -I don't know if my mom or dad will let me join (I'm kinda late on getting my license even though I really should already have it) because they don't agree with gay rights so they might not let me join. I am old enough to make my own decisions, but the ride thing is sorta something I'd have to work out. Any ideas on how I can get them to let me?

    -I'm straight and I will be the only straight ones in the club. I actually am friends with everyone in the club, so I don't think this is too big of a deal.

    -Since people jump to conclusions and my cousin goes to school with me (she's in the grade above), if she finds out, I'm afraid she'll tell my family that I like girls. To them, that'll be a huuuuge deal.

    -My best friend doesn't want to join with me because she doesn't want people to know that she's bisexual even though I'll be joining too and it's called the gay-straight diverse alliance, but she seems against the fact that I'm joining even though it's a gay-straight-diverse club.

    -my brother (who has a partner and they are going to be planning a wedding soon) makes fun of me for wearing my "love has no gender" bracelet and for having a rainbow bracelet. He thinks that it's weird that I support equality and such.

    (My dad supports him but my mom keeps telling herself it's a phase and once he came out to her, she stopped talking to him for a while)

    -I don't know how my boyfriend will feel. To be honest, I could care less. I know he agrees with it but I don't know if he'd be uncomfortable with being tied to someone who is in a club for them.

    These just sound like a bunch of excuses to be honest, but for some reason they seem like things I need to try to resolve or learn to ignore before I join the club. I reaaaally want to because it would be fun and I love the people in it, not to mention, it's something that I agree with. Meh. Opinions please?

  • Should I tell my friend that I am bulimic? How?

    So for about four months now I've been struggling with bulimia. The thing is I have been denying it for so long but the other day I finally talked to my doctor about what I've been going through with purging and binging to the point that vomiting my food is like second nature and he ended up telling me that I have full-blown bulimia. I told my best friend the other day because she's had a suspicion and knows that I've been purging. A few days ago I was vomiting blood and I was worried and since my best friend wasn't available I started talking to another friend, let's call him Ryan. Ryan is my guy best friend and I trust him so much and he was so concerned about me. She and him both know about other things I've been through, like how I used to self harm really badly and be suicidal (I was hospitalized so it's better now) and they've been by my side for years. I want to tell Ryan but I don't know if I should or how to do it. I know I should eventually but I don't know when and in which context to put it into. Any advice would be wonderful. Thank you!

  • Is it okay that my friend hurts me?

    So my guy friend at school has anger problems and he doesn't realize how strong he can be. He hurts me all the time and I pretend to brush it off, but it is getting worse and worse and I don't know if what he is doing is okay or not. It started about a month ago when I ruffled his hair as a joke and he shoved me into a locker. Then throughout that month little things happened where he'd hit me and such, but it was in a playful way and I allowed it. He was upset and said he wanted to hit something and so I held out my arm and let him hit me until he was okay. It didn't really hurt and my hand just turned red, so I didn't think much of it. About a week ago he kept poking me in the sides/waist area and it hurt really bad when he did so I asked him to stop but he didn't because I flinched when he did. By the time I left school and got home, my rib cage was bruised. Then today I ruffled his hair again and so he crumpled up all of my papers that I was working on for class. After that, I poked him in the side and he poked me in the side again so I poked him back (we usually do this, he still knows it bugs me but he does it more gently now) and when I went back to poke him again, he grabbed my wrist and twisted it until it popped. I immediately started bawling my eyes out because it hurt extremely badly and my wrist swelled a lot and I couldn't bend it for most of the day and I had to take some pain killers. He apologized a lot for that happening, but honestly he scares me when he's around a little bit. He doesn't mean to hurt me. He tells me that whenever he does. Am I just over reacting? Is this normal? Is it bad? What should I do about him? I want to stay his friend but he's always hurting me, even when I tell him to stop. Help please?

  • I want to take up a sport, but I don't know which to choose?

    So, I want to join a sport of some kind. The problem is that I'm terrible at most sports, but since I have a lot of free time and I'm not that physically active I think it would be a good idea. All my friends are in sports like basketball, cheer, softball, tennis, soccer, etc. Any ideas on what sports I should maybe try?

    I want to find something that I'm good at, or at least something that I could focus my time into. Maybe something with competitions or games? I'm 15 and a freshman in high school, by the way.

  • My parents are getting sued. How can I help?

    My mom, more specifically, is getting sued. I feel like it's my fault, too. You see, about a year and a half ago, my sister had to go to the hospital for two weeks due to a complication with her pancreas. About a month ago, a man came to the door of my house with some papers, so I answered the door and got the papers and set them on my counter. The next thing I know my dad is screaming at me for getting the papers from the man and I had no clue what was going on. Last night I heard my mom throwing up and she came out of the bathroom shaking. She was still shaking this morning and I asked her what was going on. She said that the hospital was suing her and she was scared. I want to help out my parents but I don't know how to. I'm only fifteen. My mom's been sued before by a mental hospital for $10,000 a few years back because my sister was dealing with some problems. I remember that it was a very hard time for our family to go through. We barely had money for food, we couldn't go to the doctors, we couldn't get new shoes, etc. and I don't want that to happen again even though it will. Is there ANYTHING at all I can do to help? I've been trying to avoid asking my parents for money, even if that means that my shoes have holes in the bottoms and all my jeans are ripped. I only go to the doctor if I have to be taken to the hospital or it's been preventing me from going to school. I've opted out of joining high school clubs and sports and for lunch and dinner I've almost stopped eating as a whole to save money. Is there anything more I can do? Besides, I know this is extremely hard on my parents, too. Please help..

  • My parents won't let me hang out with older people. Help?

    How can I get my parents to let me hang out with someone older than me? I have this one friend who happens to be four years older than me (she's 19 I'm 15) and she invited me and a ton of mutual friends (who are all about my age, some a year older or so) to hang out with her on Friday. She's a really nice person and I go to school with her little sister anyways. How can I let my parents let me hang out with her? My mom asked how old she was and I said 19 and she told me that being friends with older people wasn't normal. Please help? It's not just about Friday. They are my friend and I want my parents to approve of them. I've hung out with them before. Then we get to the other problem..this friend is a year younger than my older sister and they went to school together. I can see why my mom wouldn't like this, but still. It's my life and I can be friends with who I want to, right? Please answer? Thanks.

  • Problems with my crush..advice?

    So, there's this girl that I am just going crazy over. We are friends, and last night I told her that I liked her. She said that she thought I did and she asked my why, so I told her this giant, long list of things that are just so amazing about her. After the list, she said that she doesn't date friends, but she MIGHT step out of her boundaries, and she kept calling me cute and saying that my reasons were adorable. And she kept telling me her reactions (all of which were really good. She said that I made her heart speed up and smile and think). We talked for two or three hours after that.Today, she's acting like nothing happened. My other friend told me to ask her if what happened last night changed anything, so I asked, and she said that it didn't. And now I'm just sitting here feeling stupid. Usually my crushes go away the second I know they aren't interested, and this one is just here. It won't leave. Now what? Will it be weird when I see her on Monday? She was totally casual about the crush thing and I feel better after telling her. It's just a weird situation. Advice, anyone?
