  • My therapist dosen't like me?

    He doesn't show it but his feet always point away from me and I've read that people do that when they dislike you. Should I get a new therapist?

  • Is this a suicide note?

    My dad sent me a message saying “life is full of surprises... I love you all.” And messaged my sister saying “I wish I could’ve been a better dad, I love you both” and also posted a status saying he loves everyone. He won’t answer my calls, does anyone know what this means?

  • I should be skinner than I am?

My thighs still rub and touch each other and I can wrap my hand around my wrist but I wish I could do it more. How come I weigh so little but I don’t look underweight or skinny enough? Even my stomach is pudgy like jello and it’s disgusting. My waist is 24 inches when it should be 20-22 inches. Would it be okay to get down to 95 lbs?

    Best answer: Sounds like a panic attack. I have had one and it was diagnosed as such by a doctor.

    Although frightening you are not going to die because of one.

    The best advice I can give you and this is what the doctors told me so I know it works is find a PAPER bag it must not be plastic.

    Hold the paper bag over your mouth and nose and breath into and out of the PAPER bag (I stress it cannot be plastic) .

    No-one knows why panic attacks happen but they are real and potentially dangerous, they will not in themselves kill you but if in your panic you rush for help the bus you didn't see as you run over the road will.

    If a panic attack occurs then you breath too quickly. Your body takes in too much oxygen so your body gets over loaded. Believe it or not too much Oxygen is not good for you without the required amount of Carbon Dioxide to balance it.

    When you are having a panic attack you will be gasping for air. Because of your rapid breathing your body is receiving more oxygen than it can cope and release as Carbon Dioxide.

    That affects the amount of both getting to your brain and causes the sense of dread and imminent death which only increases your anxiety and panic making everything worse.

    The reason for the PAPER bag (never plastic) is when you breath out most of what comes out is Carbon Dioxide. You are panicking because your body, through your increased breathing is expelling to much Carbon Dioxide.

    When you breath into and inhale from the bag you are getting a load of the Carbon Dioxide you have just exhaled back, and you recover.

    Believe me I have been there done it and once told to try it, it does work.

    However I can't stress enough it must be a paper bag. If you try breathing in and out to a plastic bag the panic attack won't kill you but suffocation will.

  • How do I deal with work life? I can't deal with 8 hour workday?

    I go crazy. I've been able to survive at my job because my boss is in another state and instead of working 8 hours I can work 12 or even 14 hour days but with some rest and relax in between.

    I go crazy. I've been able to survive at my job because my boss is in another state and instead of working 8 hours I can work 12 or even 14 hour days but with some rest and relax in between. Going straight at it is so difficult for me. This has changed as they hired a new coworker and he sees this but just works his 8 hour day and he thinks I'm just a bum I'm being lazy, I may be in my style but I do all the work that is needed, just take longer, I don't get paid overtime. How can I deal with this situation. At work it's becoming unbearable with this coworker keeping tabs on me, now I try to do everything in 8 hours but finish with huge headache and feeling horrible. I know it sounds whiny, but does anybody have this problem? Like I said I have no problem being at a place 14, 12 hours without extra pay, I just can't deal with stress.

    Best answer: The answer to this SHOULD be 'in what way?'

    But I think alcohol is worse than marijuana in MANY ways. Just about every way.

    You can's poison yourself with marijuana. People actually die from 'alcohol poisoning'.

    You can't smoke yourself into gross ataxia, passing out, not being able to remember what happened. Really you can only get so high no matter how much you smoke (within reason).

    Pot has never been shown to cause permanent physical damage to the body. It doesn't threaten the liver, the heart, etc.

    Some people get angry and even violent when they drink. I've seen this myself. They get into fights in bars. They abuse their wives and kids. I've never seen anyone get ugly on pot.

    Marijuana is NOT PHYSICALLY ADDICTIVE. It's 'habit forming', like brushing your teeth every night, but just stopping 'cold turkey' is not actually physically dangerous, as it is with some drugs. You don't need 'rehab'. Some people use weed, as some use alcohol, to run away from their problems. And weed doesn't really do that any better than alcohol, but at least weed itself doesn't BECOME the problem, as alcohol does.

    Alcohol kills. Excessive alcohol consumption is responsible for 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults! The only way you'd die from weed abuse is if a truckload of the stuff fell on you.

  • How do some people eat whatever they want and stay skinny?

    Do you they actually count their calories or just stuff their face with whatever? My thyroid test came back as normal but I still need a faster metabolism. I eat about 2500 calories a day and I’m not a size 0 or a size 2.

    Best answer: That's perfectly normal, sweet.

    Best answer: That's perfectly normal, sweet. At thirteen years old, it just means that your body's changing from a child's body to an adult one, and the bleeding- (which, by the way, is called a "period"), is all part and parcel of that child-to-adult transition. I don't wanna scare ya, but brace yourself, sweet, 'cos there'll be times when you're on your period, that you'll probably be in absolute bloody agony with it, and have the worst lower stomach pains that ya could possibly imagine- (one of my Xs used to double up on the bloody floor, crying, 'cos it hurt so much at times), but again, that's perfectly normal and absolutely nothing to worry about. Welcome to the big, bad, grown-up world, sweet! It's all downhill from now on!
