Position #1 - "The Perennial Missionary"

The missionary position is one of the most under-rated sex positions. Although some people believe that it is very easy to ejaculate in this position, depending on how you use it, it can be highly effective for lasting longer during sex. This is what you can do to make the most out of this position:

When you feel you are close to climaxing, hold your breath for as long as possible before resuming intercourse. You will need to identify the exact instance where you cannot control your arousal any longer. Just before you reach this point, take a deep breath and stop thrusting until the sensations ebb away. If this breaks the momentum of sex and you find your partner getting a little impatient, try stimulating her in different ways, but breathe normally this time. Repeat this process at least 5 times before you allow yourself to ejaculate.

Position #2 - "The Industrious Cowgirl"

Why not let her do all the "hard work"? This is one of the most effective positions for guys who want to prolong their lovemaking. Let her get on top while you lie on your back. When she is in this position, you have all the time to practice your breathing and hold back, should you need to. Most men enjoy this position because it transfers the responsibility of the pleasures onto the woman for a change. Most women love this too, so it is a win-win for both!

All sex positions will work out differently for different men. You have to find the right position(s) that will increase your staying power in bed. Invest a bit of time in doing this, because this may just be the thing you need in order to last longer. For a start, try out these two perennial favorites. You may be pleasantly surprised by how far you can go!

Here's a bonus tip: If you are ready to SUPERCHARGE your sexual stamina and confidence, this is a proven step-by-step system that helped me last 27 minutes longer in bed:

CAUTION: If you find yourself suddenly lasting from under 2 minutes to over 2 hours in your first attempt, please do cease and resist from using this incredibly powerful technique for a few days

  1. QUESTION:
    longer lasting sex??
    okay ive heard that viagra will make u last longer in bed but i want to know if this is true and if it is then how much time should i be able to last after taking it?

    Also is there anything else that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are a mature adult then the choice of viagara is yours. If you're a teen then you don't want to get "hooked" on viagara. You can last longer in bed if you j/o before you have sex, or j/o more frequently.

  2. QUESTION:
    It might not be love but everyone insists I have to keep trying?
    I am 35 years old with 3 children and 3 years ago ended a bad and sometimes violent relationship of 13 years (also the father of my children) at the time I remember craving just to be with a nice man who would respect me. 10 months ago I thought I met that man. He was my best friend from when I was 16 when I lived away in Germany for a year. I fancied him like mad and we constantly flirted with one another although never anything happened as he always had a girlfriend. So 10 months ago after he'd been looking for me for 2 years he found me and we started a relationship (long distance). I fell head over heels, couldnt believe what was happening to me. At last a happiness I had always imagined and hoped for and no less with the most gorgeous man I'd ever fancied. We saw eachother every 3 weeks, I'd go to Germany then he would come to me.

    But by Christmas I started to notice that perhaps my euphoria was just happening to me as we didnt often become intimate, and even when I was with him I felt alone emotionally (hence why I burst into tears when I watched twilight missing that love that I had infact felt with my 13 years relationship with my ex despite the violence). At the time it could have been the difference in our language (although we both speak fluently in both languages) but I didnt really picture the extent or even realise in my mind that there was a definate issue here, until he decided to give up his world as he knew it, his job and friends and came to England to live with me and my children after 6 months.

    He came in a bad mood, criticised my ways and complained about the children not listening to him. (which I always thought they wouldnt if he was looking for the bad so why would they) Intimacy was none existant, and i felt emotionally not cherished. He admitted that he wasn't a passionate person in bed and had viagra with him which I didnt know he' taken at the beginning. He told me that before he came to England he knew there was a problem and thought that being here would sort it out for us. This made me feel betrayed because I may have delayed him moving in, or at least know what was going on before we plunged and I felt the pressure of making it work as he had given up so much.But still it continued I felt he wasnt looking at me when I walked through the house naked, he never compliments me, and somehow I feel like a bit of a man in the relationship as every issue seems to be my fault and never his. It seems he thinks about his self mostly like dishing himself the best looking steak. Despite all this he is a beautiful man, he spends time gardening and his beauty is displayed when I look around the house and garden. He is gentle and it seems my chance of happiness (especially when I remember how he made me feel when I was 16). My family adore him and everyone thinks Im so lucky.

    Now 4 months on after he has moved in I am still feeling lost and I come home from work feeling empty and dont know where to put myself when he wants to kiss me, I am resentful and feel betrayed that the wonderful love I thought we had might not be in existance. He isnt playful with me and he doesnt flirt with me anymore. The worst of it is I am trying to talk to my friends and they just remember how I was in my last relationship and keep telling me I need to keep on trying. That my expectations are too high. That he will make me happy if I let him. I am very much a person that needs a second opinion and I feel every word from my family is like they are trying to control me, and force me to be this unhappy. I feel almost like an arranged marriage or something.

    He actually moved out 4 weeks ago back to Germany with all his things and every one told me how stupid I was to let him go and I missed him so much so he came back after 2 weeks. And since I thought it would be better but it isnt. I wlecomed him with such attention but after a few days I switched off again as I didnt feel I got it back.

    I am so unhappy and do not know what to do. I am scared that my previous relationship may also have an impact as I am remembering the wonderful things he used to do with me which I loved...I know I have woffled but I really hope someone has some advice.

  3. QUESTION:
    Can Masturbation help me last longer in bed?
    My girlfriend takes FOREVER to reach orgasm through intercourse. She says it's not a problem, but I know it has to be a little disappointing. Even when I take care of her with foreplay "a head" of time, I still only last on average about 15-20 minutes with sex.

    So I've been reading about different methods to practice training myself not to orgasm for a while. I seem to have trained myself since I was a teenager how to orgasm as quick as possible while masturbating. If I try and masturbate for 30min-1hour each time, eventually, do you think this will train my body how to control my urge to orgasm, or at least pro-long it?

    I really don't want to get any drugs. I tried Viagra once and all that did was make me last so long that we both got tired. I want this to be natural. I've also heard that it's best to never masturbate when you have a woman in your life because not only will she be offended, but it would condition the body to quick orgasms.

    I'm hoping that with "practice masturbation", I can train myself to last longer with my girlfriend, so that by the time we get married and the condom comes off, I'll be a little more satisfying to her.

    TO YAHOO: Please don't delete this question. I really want some decent input on this topic. I want to know what people think about this. I plan to be married within a year and a half.

    Thanks.

  4. QUESTION:
    Viagra¿?what ddoes it dooo?
    Ok so I want to try viagra cuz I cum fast would it help me by not making me cum fast nd does it help u to last longer in bed?i got a medical license to smike pot if I smoke fhen take viagra will it b bad for me only planning on tryin it once..nd wat shuld I buy which kind of viagra
    ND im 19 am i 2 young?/

    • ANSWER:
      If you take Viagra & don't need it - you can screw up your reproductive system big time.
      Some people suffer side effects - such as a sudden drop in blood pressure. You might miss out on all the fun - - if you're dead!!

      Viagra only helps a guy to achieve an erection. It does NOT make you last longer in bed.

  5. QUESTION:
    Premature ejaculation problem. (I will choose best answer for actual helpful answers)?
    When my boyfriend and I have sex he doesn't last very long. If were having slow soft sex he can usually last about 30 min to an hour. And that's not a problem. But I like sex to be kind of rougher. I like it deep and fast. And when we try to have sex this way Im lucky if he can last 5 min. And if I want him to last longer we have to stop for a few seconds during sex so he can concentrate on not cumming. So my question is: is there any way to make a guy last longer in bed without using any kind of medications? He is young and healthy so I don't want like Viagra or anything like that. Just a healthy natural way to help him last longer.
    Also. I cant get him to go another round. Weve tried rubbing one out and then trying again. But he doesnt like it.

    • ANSWER:
      What you've described is not premature ejaculation! I seriously hope you have not told your boyfriend you think he has a problem because is going to get a complex. 30 minutes is exceptionally long and an hour is just ridiculous; some people would consider it a problem if it actually took that long. 5 minutes is actually very good especially if he's pounding away. According to my human sexuality professor, 4-5 minutes is a pretty good length of time for penetrative thrusting. If this is too short a time for you to come, then have him go down on you first or have him use a toy on you in order to work you up before he penetrates you. There is more to sex than penetration which is why foreplay is such an important part of so many people's sex lives.

  6. QUESTION:
    hey guys.. i have a question regarding my bf?
    hi...
    i would like to know what will help him "last longer" in bed? its graet for me but he says that he feels that he cant last long enough in bed. we are both 21 and with our 2nd sexual partner.

    the sex itself is awesome. i just want to help him to "improve" himself to make him feel better.

    thnks guys!!

    *** please give me serious answers.... no viagra answers pls! =}

    • ANSWER:
      In general, practice and relaxation will help you deal with the problem. Some men try to distract themselves by thinking non-sexual thoughts (such as naming baseball players and records) to avoid becoming excited too fast.

      Some helpful techniques include the following:

      Masturbate an hour or so before having sex.

      The "stop and start" method:

      This technique involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. The stimulation is then removed for about thirty seconds and then may be resumed. The sequence is repeated until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.

      The "squeeze" method:

      This technique involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. At that point, the man or his partner gently squeezes the end of the penis (where the glans meets the shaft) for several seconds, withholding further sexual stimulation for about 30 seconds, and then resuming stimulation. The sequence may be repeated by the person or couple until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.

  7. QUESTION:
    have you ever got tired of faking it in bed but you knew it would ruin your relationship if..?
    you said something to your partner. My friend only last three strokes thats less then two minutes. I have been avoiding seeing him at my home because i'm tired of acting like he really makes me happy. i do that alone and i dont care to cuddle afterwards. he is too old and has health problems so viagra is out of the question. what should i do? sometimes i just want to get him off and then im ready for him to leave because i hate being smothered. he can't lick so i told him 2 not do it anymore and i hate for him to put his hand down there and play with it. If it were not for sleeping 2gether i would be happy with him but he just will not give up. and i think his days in bed were over a long time ago and he needs to face reality.Its Dead.

    • ANSWER:
      I never fake it. Yeah, it makes them feel bad. You should talk to him about it all first. Maybe you guys can come up with something that will work for you. Perhaps he will try really hard to perform in a different way once he realizes how unhappy you are. But don't expect anything to change if he doesn't even know there is anything wrong.

  8. QUESTION:
    Any help with a embarrassing sex problem?
    So up until now I have had no problems with sex and this is why I'm starting to worry. I'm 20 years old and while dating my past girlfriends I could last about 30-40 minutes and not really have a problem getting erect. I just started dating my current girlfriend probably about four months ago and we've had some problems (to say the least) with our sex life and it scares me because I love this girl to death and I know that eventually problems in bed can lead to problems with the relationship. The first thing is my girlfriend is not a fan of condoms. Whenever we use a condom she gets nothing out of if because all she can think about is the lubricant and when we tried to use non-lubricated condoms it hurt her because she wasn't as lubricated as she needed to be. I'm fine with this because she is on birth control so it's not a big deal to me but now I last usually no longer than about 2-3 minutes, if that, which depresses the hell out of me and makes me feel like crap when I can't get her to climax. The second problem is that for some reason I'm usually not in the mood to have sex but I try anyway and even if I am in the mood, we will go to switch positions and a lot of the time I'll become flaccid before I'm able to insert my penis again. I could REALLY use some help cause I don't want to resort to Viagra because I've seen people become dependent on it and because I'm only 20 years old. Thank you so much.

    • ANSWER:
      Make some lifestyle changes, Bubba! No smoking - no dipping - no chewing - no beer/ale - no booze - no drugs. These ALL can interrupt blood flow to the penis resulting in diminished libido & cause erectile dysfunction or impotence. Stress can also cause malfunction at the junction.

      Also - the following information could be of great help in your bouncing back.

      Improve Sexual Virility (For Guys)
      Many men suffer from a low sex drive, sexual performance problems, and an overall lack of male virility. These problems can negatively impact a man's self-esteem, sense of self-worth, and the quality of his romantic relationships. However, problems with male virility and sexual functioning can be, in most cases, remedied. What follows is a list of lifestyle, health, and dietary factors that promote strong male virility and improved sexual function and performance.

      Step 1GET ADEQUATE SLEEP

      Your body needs adequate amounts of sleep in order to maximize sexual performance and sexual virility. A lack of sleep is a major cause of low sex drive and/or sexual problems. Strive to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep each night to increase and maintain sexual virility. Take afternoon rests or naps when possible.

      Step 2DE-STRESS REGULARLY

      Chronic stress is toxic to the body and can negatively impact sexual virility and sexual function. Strive to keep stress levels as low as possible in order to maximize not only your health and well-being, but to increase your sexual virility and sex drive. Meditate on a regular basis; do yoga moves in addition to deep breathing exercises to help unwind and de-stress.

      Step 3EXERCISE REGULARLY

      In addition to improving mental and physical health, regular exercise promotes healthy sexual function and helps to improve sexual virility. Aim to exercise at least 4-5 times per week, incorporating moderate cardiovascular exercise in addition to strength training. Regular exercise promotes healthy blood circulation and increases testosterone and growth hormone levels, all of which promote increased sexual virility and sexual function.

      Step 4ELIMINATE JUNK FOOD

      Eating a healthy diet promotes physical and emotional health as well as healthy sexual function and virility. A poor diet, one lacking in adequate nutrients and antioxidants, can result in a low sex drive and sexual performance problems, including impotence. Eat a diet heavy in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean cuts of meat and fish, and low-fat dairy to increase sexual virility and improve sexual function.

      Step 5ADD GARLIC TO YOUR DIET

      Garlic is rich in allicin, which can improve blood flow to the sexual organs, which in turn promotes healthy sexual function and strong, hard erections. Cut up some garlic and sprinkle it on your favorite foods. Or take a garlic supplement. Garlic is a sexual super food that can increase your sexual virility.

      Step 6ADD AVOCADO TO YOUR DIET

      Avocados are rich in folic acid and high in vitamin B6, both of which help to regulate sexual hormone function, which in turn helps to optimize sexual health and sexual virility. Add some avocado slices to your salad or on your sandwich.

      Step 7EAT A BANANA DAILY

      Bananas are another sexual super food that can help improve sexual function and increase sexual virility. Bananas are high in bromelain and b vitamins, both of which are potent sexual hormone regulators that can help improve sexual function, sexual desire, and sexual virility. Add a banana to your daily diet.

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      The long term masturbation does help in my experience but the problem is that it takes 30 minuets to an hour of your time on a regular basis. In my experience you get better results by exercising regularly getting plenty of sleep and eating right. It is also easier to last longer when you're on top because you can control the pace a little bit more, though you don't want to slow down too much because if she's close and you slow down she'll loose it and it's close to impossible to get her off. I find that angling yourself to rub up against the clit while you're thrusting helps enormously also.


Will Xanax Make Me Last Longer In Bed

Most people love a good bargain and there's always a deal to be had on electrical items such as cheap laptops. Simply by shopping around, looking for special offers and asking the right questions you can get hold of cheap laptops at an even further discounted rate.

Cheap laptops need just as much thought and consideration when it comes to use, maintenance and storage as the most expensive laptops on the market. After all, it's not really a bargain if two weeks after your purchase you drop the laptop and smash it! Below are four top tips for looking after cheap laptops (and indeed laptops of all prices!)

1) Let your laptop breathe

Don't be tempted to use your laptop when it's still inside your laptop bag, even if you're on the move and in a rush! Using a laptop in its bag (or even resting a laptop on a cushion on your knees) can cause heat to build up through poor air circulation. If you often use your laptop on the go then try to rest it on the table on trains or you could create a small platform to sit in your laptop box to help aid air circulation.

2) Keep your laptop warm

Just like people, cheap laptops can feel the cold and chilly weather conditions and this can be potentially dangerous to your laptop. Don't be tempted to leave your laptop in your car boot over night in winter (or any time of year as it'll be much more secure inside) as cold conditions can actually freeze your laptop. You should also keep your laptop free from damp conditions so be especially careful in rooms where condensation can build up in cool weather.

3) Store your laptop safely

Cheap laptops and more expensive ones both need to be stored correctly. Don't leave your laptop on the floor, even for a minute. Warm laptops can be very enticing to pets such as cats to make a bed on and all the bright buttons can allure children to your laptop with sticky fingers and spilled drinks. Obviously leaving laptops on the floor can result in them being stood on and completely broken in one step. Make sure your laptop stays safe and store it on a desk (not the kitchen table) or keep it safe in a sturdy laptop bag.

4) Travelling tips

If you travel with a laptop then invest in a proper laptop bag. No matter how little you pay for cheap laptops, if they're not carried in a bag designed for laptops they are much less likely to survive being dropped. When travelling on flights, keep your laptop with you at all times as checking it in can mean it gets battered about with the rest of the luggage, or stolen or lost, which if you use your laptop for business purposes can be devastating. All laptops have varying functions and facilities, whether they're cheap laptops or more pricy ones, so make sure you are familiar with how your laptop works before you take it on a long trip with you. Getting to a foreign country and not knowing how to turn the wireless function on or how to access your emails could be a disaster.

Always keep your eyes peeling for bargains when investing in cheap laptops but once you have yours, don't forget to treat it with the same respect as if it was twice the price!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How long does rebound insomnia from xanax last?
    So I've managed to wean myself off xanax. Everything is fine really, no real big problems, but the only complaint I have is that it is real hard to sleep without it. I have work at 10AM everyday, I'll go to bed around midnight and I'll be wide awake until 5AM. Then when I do fall asleep I usually wake up every hour or so for no reason. So total I get maybe four or five hours a night if I'm lucky, waking up every hour or so in between. I was just wondering, how long is this rebound insomnia going to last? Anyway to make it better? I've tried taking melatonin, and there will be nights where it works really good and other nights where it does not work at all. I've heard that you have to take it every night for a few weeks though for it to actually start working really well. Is this true?

    • ANSWER:
      FIRST OF ALL, CONGRATS on weaning off the xanax, because that is EXTREMELY hard, trust me, been there done that!!!! Melatonin is a very good suppliment, but at walgreens they have a thing called 'calms forte' which is really good to relax you because it has lavender and chamomille. You can take these together. I also suggest a relaxation CD, where they take you though the steps of relaxing. But your difficulty will REALLY suck for the first few weeks, even up to a few months. Also, have a bedtime routine that will help signal your brain that's sleep time. Dim the lights, brush teeth, and wash your face. Just as xanax becomes a sleep aid, so do routines to throw your brain into SLEEP time!!! Habits take a lot of time to get into, and even longer to break. Just make sure you go to sleep at the same time everynight and wake up at the same time each idea. Again, congrats!! and good luck!!!!!

  2. QUESTION:
    Took too much Xanax, what do I do?
    I was prescribed 0.25 mg of Xanax about 4 or 5 months ago. I only took it for less than a month, at one pill a day, twice a day. I didn't finish the whole bottle and had some left over, saving it in case I ever needed it again. Decided to take some today around 2pm. I know I took way too much (three pills, making that 0.75 mg). That may not seem like a lot, but I definitely felt it.
    I started feeling shaky, sweaty but cold, and queasy, almost like you feel when you have the flu. I tried to take a shower, but couldn't even stand up. I walked to my room from the bathroom, and blacked out for a minute, but came to when I hit my head falling to the ground.
    I've just been laying in bed all day. Starting to feel a little better, able to walk around but still queasy and disoriented. Even trying to type this question is difficult.
    I've been drinking lots of water and ate some starchy food to try to absorb the meds.
    Is there anything else I should do? It's approaching midnight and I still feel weird. Will it pass by morning if I sleep? When will this wear off? Did I really take way too much, or is it just because I haven't taken Xanax in a long time?
    TL;DR: What do you do when you take too much Xanax and it doesn't wear off after 10 hours? How long does the effect of an overdose last?

    • ANSWER:
      You didn't even take 1 mg, you will be fine....just go to sleep

  3. QUESTION:
    Length of Xanax Withdrawls?
    Hello Everyone,

    I hope you can help me. I have been on Xanax (Generic) for about two months now. My doctor put my on three mgs daily but I found myself taking close to 5mgs at the end. Of course because I was taking more than prescribed I ran out of the medication. It was not my goal to abuse this medication so please do not judge. I was taking it for a legitimate anxiety disorder and found myself needing more to get the effect, which is apparently very common with Xanax.

    I didn’t even realize I was addicted until I ran out. I normally take some before bed and here was my last 4 days without the drug.

    Night One: Felt crazy, I mean literally crazy. I had insane nightmares. So vivid that I can even explain it. Scared the crap out of me and was waking me up constantly. So cold and unable to get warmth.

    Day One: Felt insane… I was in a whole other world. I didn’t even understand what was happening around me. Laid in bed and started twitching really bad. My heart was racing and I found myself on my knees praying to God exclaiming “I’m not ready yet”. The closest I’ve ever been to death. I actually think I had a mild seizure but I can’t really remember. All of my senses were heightened… everything was louder and brighter and all of my fingers and toes had no feeling. I can’t even make a fist at this point.

    Day Two Night: I still felt crazy. Slept horrible! Was tossing and turning all night. I didn’t have any nightmares but what was playing on my TV incorporated into my dreams. I slept about 5 hours but would only say that one of those five I was actually “sleeping”.

    Day Three: I’m feeling somewhat better at this point. I’m not feeling “crazy” but I’m not 100% normal. I am having severe ticks and twitches. I get scared easily. It hurts when I try to makes a fist or crack my toes. I’m not social because people would perceive me as “weird”.

    Day Three Night: I’m sleeping but still not rested. I can’t get comfortable and I’m having backaches. I’m having constant trips to the bathroom.

    Day Four: I felt much better when I woke up. Don’t feel “crazy” but I notice that I’m more aware than yesterday. Horrible twitches and ticks. My hands have uncontrollable movements and my neck is making fast jerking movements. Typing feels impossible as my hands have this uncontrollable urge to be all over the keyboard. I feel cranky and depressed. I feel fat and I can’t get my ex off my mind. Mind you we’ve been broken up for almost 3 months now and prior to withdrawals I thought I was completely over him. Feel funny and not normal.

    I know that they say you shouldn’t do Xanax withdrawals without medical supervision but that wasn’t an option for me. I’ve gone 4 almost 5 days without them and I’m past the risk of seizures being high and physical problems. They say that Xanax addiction is mostly mental but I never felt I was addicted until I didn’t have any. I was in no rush to go to the pharmacy to pick them up because I didn’t think I was addicted and thought I would be fine without them for a few days.

    I feel no need to take the pill whatsoever. Honestly someone could put a bottle in front of me and I would walk away. Maybe I was just lucky because I never felt like I HAD to have them until I got hit with a Xanax Withdrawal 2x4.

    My problem is mainly these ticks and twitches. So, when will I feel normal again? When will I stop twitching like crazy? When will I feel “clear headed” again and not all foggy? Also, does anyone know how long it takes for your GABA levels to get normal again after stopping Xanax?

    I appreciate everyone’s help. Like I said I didn’t have intentions of abusing this medicine so please don’t judge me. I just want to be “normal” again.

    •For anyone thinking about starting Xanax, don’t do it! It’s not worth it! Try another anti-anxiety medication that won’t put you through withdrawals like this!

    P.S- I have no intentions of using Xanax ever again in my life!

  5. QUESTION:
    I've been weaned off luvox for 12 days after being on it for 10 yrs at 250mg a day. How long for side effects
    The problem is the side effects. 2 main side effects are short patience--I get very angry over very small things. Very mean and hurtful--but I can't turn it off easily. And I can't sit still. I go to bed tired but I get tingliness in my toes and other areas.. and it makes me insane! I have to get up and move around. The dr. gave me xanax. How long will these side effects last? He's suggesting Lexapro. But I don't want to take anything. Help!

    • ANSWER:
      I guess there would be some questions about this issue...
      Why were you on the Luvox (fluvoxamine) for 10 years? What symptoms did you have that led you to go on Luvox? And why did you discontinue its use?

      But, in any event, the typical starting dose of Luvox is 50mg/day. The maximum dose is 300 mg/day. Therefore, what I can say is that you were on a fairly healthy dose of Luvox, which is an "SSRI" - Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor.

      It is well known that such medications must be weaned very slowly to avoid discontinuation effects, sometimes referred to as "discontinuation syndrome". The hallmarks of this is that it happens typically in the first few days of abruptly stopping an SSRI and include such symptoms as:
      Dizziness, nausea, fatigue, muscle aches, chills, anxiety, and irritability.
      These symptoms are not dangerous and typically dissipate over one to two weeks, though they can be quite distressing and uncomfortable.

      Therefore, I would say that you have symptoms of this, but it has only been 12 days...and you were on a high dose for a LONG time (10 years). I would give it another couple of weeks...and see if the symptoms completely resolve (hopefully!)...

      -
      I would caution you heavily on the use of xanax - it is very addictive...and you can easily become dependent upon it. It is definitely a short-term solution for you, and should NOT be used for more than a couple of weeks.

      If symptoms persist, it may be very difficult to discern whether these symptoms are from discontinuation of the Luvox, or if underlying depression with anxiety is again rearing its head (after being possibly held more at bay for 10 years on Luvox)?

      In any event, Lexapro was an excellent suggestion. There are many other SSRI's that would also be excellent choices for you, if symptoms persist for more than 2 more weeks.

      I KNOW you don't want to take anything....however, please do not willingly accept "xanax" when there are other much better and suitable alternatives that aren't as habit-forming.

      Consider: you were on a very high SSRI for 10 years! Give yourself a break, don't condemn yourself, don't put yourself down, and don't be discouraged!

      You may just need a very SMALL dose of a different SSRI for a little awhile....with later hopes to wean from it! Perhaps another 3-6 months, is all...or even less!

      It is NOT as though you would go back to a high dose, like you were before....and considering the alternatives of dealing with the anger outbursts and restlessness, it seems like quite a healthy choice.

      Of course, talk this over with your doctor.

      If you are really opposed to medication, then consider a short period of counseling....which is very effective.

      I hope and pray your fears/anxieties/restlessness quickly disappear in the coming days, and this issue be a thing of the past for you.

      Grace and peace,

  6. QUESTION:
    I need advice! Gay friend is in closet & tried to commit suicide! We love him...what do we do?
    I am worried about a dear friend of mine. He is gay, but in the closet. He is part of my husbands "boys" and the 5 of them have all been a close-knit group for years. They would do anything for one another.
    My friend, I will call him my L, does not know that I found out he is gay. I only found accidently. You see, my husband and I roomed with him for a month while out house was being built. I asked to use his laptop one night and he closed out a few programs before handing it to me and then went to bed. Long story short, he left a few pages minimized at the bottom and one of them was a gay chat forum; so when someone started chatting with him it blinked. I looked at his web page to be sure I was correct in what I was seeing, and I was.
    It was not a shock at all though.

    We have always laughed at him jokingly for being overly sensitive (he really is sometimes) and the guys have even questioned him once or twice about being gay (in a kidding way but they were actually serious) but Mr. L always responds with anger and claims to hate gays.

    Lately, he has been very withdrawn and EXTREMELY depressed. Then he lost his job and it got much worse. We have each gone over just to open his blinds and wake him up at 5pm.

    Well, the other night he tried to commit suicide. He wrote a note and then proceeded to take 2 xanax and 2 vicodin every hour with Jim Beam. When the pills actually started making it hard for him to breathe, he started panicking and called a friend.

    When he got there, Mr. L was convulsing and non-responsive. He rushed him to the ER where he told them that he had an "anxiety attack" and took too much Xanax and Pain Killers so they pumped his stomach, called his family and was released the next morning.

    When my husband asked him if he was okay he said that he was going to stay with his family for the weekend and was going to see a counselor but would be lying if he said that he wasn't going to try again.

    We are all freaking out. We told him how much we love him but he doens't care and honestly...I think it's b/c he doesn't think he can be honest about who he is. I am guessing that he thinks that the guys would see him differently. I told my husband about this in confidence and he could care less and said that if anyone cared then Mr. L didn't need those men in his life anyway. I agree completely but do fear that it would change things.

    I have a few questions about what to do and figured that the gay community would know how to answer me best.

    Should I tell him that I know he's gay and then try to talk to him about what he's feeling? He gets so angry at the mention of "gay" that I am worried that he may freak out on me and I'd lose him as a friend. I don't feel that it's my place to tell anyone else as that's his choice but the vibe I am getting is that he may have told his family before and the reaction wasn't well. I am only assuming here but in the last two years he won't go see them (even on holidays) and his parents actually LEFT as soon as he got out of the hospital!!

    My other question is what can I do to help him get thru his suicidal tendencies?? I understand why our friend covered for him the other night but he needed to be placed under supervision so that he won't hurt himself. He would hate me if I did this to him but the comment that he was going to try again....I don't know what to do.

    I think I am going to hire him at my work if he promises me that he will put in an effort and my husband and I are actually thinking of moving in with him to help him with rent/bills; also to make him feel like a part of a family unit. We have a 1 year old so this would be tough & only for 6 months or so but we love him and would do anything for him.

    I need advice on how to handle this!! Thanks SO much!

    Please help me!?!
    CHERRY...YOU F*CKING BIGGOT B*TCH!!! GOD LOVES EVERYONE AND IT'S DISGUSTING, DISPICABLE MORONS SUCH AS YOURSELF WHO HE WILL PUNISH FOR NOT ACCEPTING PEOPLE AS THEY ARE. YOU NEED TO BE PUT ON AN ISLAND AND LEFT THERE TO ROT IN HELL. AIDS IS NOT A GAY ONLY DISEASE YOU F*CKING IDIOT!
    YOU MAKE ME SICK!!!

    • ANSWER:
      This poor man is a clear example of the damage done by society's homophobia. He has internalized it. He says he hates gays, and I suspect he does... including himself.

      The help he needs is professional. Ordinarily, a suicide attempt will guarantee that a person is required to get professional help. He needs to talk with a counselor, to get to the root of his homophobia.

      I'm not sure if there is much you can do, other than what you have done. Be supportive, let him know you are there if he wants to talk. But don't let on that you know. It will only make him defensive, and result in more denial. Let him tell you on his own, if he chooses to.

      I wish the best for him.

  7. QUESTION:
    Dissociative Non-Epileptic Attacks? PLEASE HELP.?
    My friend was morbidly sexually abused and beaten for +-45 minutes when she was only 12 years old and she is now 18. She became addicted to xanax and went through rehab and got better when she was 16-17. 4 months ago she became a heavy cocaine user, never going more than a couple days without it, and this went on for 3 months. One night she snorted about .75 grams and then did a line of xanax and about 30 minutes later she went into a huge convulsion episode that consisted of about 20 bad 'seizures.' She hit her head pretty hard and had a big bruise on her forehead. When i found out about this I decided to force her to stop because i realized how bad it was. Well she did it one more time behind my back the next day (I know, she's dumb) and then quit.

    This is when it gets weird. We were both committed that she was going to quit, and she went two nights without it. Keep in mind i stay with her every night now to make sure she's fine. The third night her hands started to have little convulsions, and as the night went on her back started to arch and strain uncontrollably. The convulsions kept getting worse and worse until she was having minute long torso neck arm and hand convulsion periods. The whole thing lasted about 2 hours long, and has happened since the third night for 11 days straight. After a large convulsion episode she will sometimes completely stop breathing for up to a minute, at which point I start CPR, but she usually recovers after the first breathe is given, and then goes into another convulsion episode. Once her convulsion episodes get to the climax and she is having long 'seizures', she is always severely confused after. She looks around and has no idea where she is or whats going on, she is unresponsive if i ask her something, and she doesn't know who i am. Sometimes after having a 'seizure' she will look at me and freak out and push me away and try to get as far away from me as possible until she kind of remembers who i am. She also has horrible nightmares and vivid night terrors every night, usually about the rape or just people dying.

    She has finally agreed to see a doctor, which I honestly don't even know if that's what she needs. I think she needs to see a therapist or a psychologist. All i want is a second opinion on this; Do you think she is having Dissociative Non-Epileptic Attacks or is this an actual seizure disorder? Here are some characteristics of her convulsions that i have been observing through the days:
    -Gradual onset of convulsions. (They start off small then climax then taper off)
    -Only happen when shes resting or going to bed.
    -The episodes are interrupt-able in the sense that if she is laying down tired and they start to happen but then a friend calls her and wants to go do something, her mind gets distracted and they go away for the time being.
    -hardly any leg movement; during very large convulsion periods she will point her toes.
    -Very very confused in between convulsions, and sometimes extremely frightened.
    -eyes are closed during convulsions.

    The main reason I believe that they are Dissociative Non-Epileptic Attacks is because:
    -When asked what she is thinking about, she hides her face, and if i say 'are you thinking about what has happened in the past' she will stare at me and then nod her head with a very frightened look, and then sometimes goes into convulsions after.
    -She pushes me away and trys to get away from me and has the most frightened look on her face.
    -They only happen when her mind isn't busy, never just out of the blue.
    -episodes last about 2 hours through the night.

    Counter reasons why it might not be Dissociative Non-Epileptic Attacks:
    -They just now started happening, 6 years after the incident.
    -The first 'seizure' after doing coke and bars seemed to be an actual seizure, and im not sure but i don't think having a seizure can cause you to start having DNEA, because her DNEA seems to be linked to her childhood abuse.

    Keep in mind that her abuse was as bad as it gets; held at gunpoint, beaten, raped, made to do and say things, and called names. She is extremely uncomfortable talking about it, she had told me she had been raped before, but one night after her convulsion episode she told me little bits and pieces of what happened and was breathing irregularly and twitching and very scared. Her parents don't even know.

    well i think that's all there is. if you would like any more information, let me know, and PLEASE let me know what you think.

    • ANSWER:
      Abrupt Xanax withdrawal can cause seizures. Whether it is from the drug use or even non-epileptic attacks due to PTSD she needs to go see a neurologist quickly. Rape and abuse victims don't randomly have absence or grand mal seizures.

      Please have her see a doctor forthwith.

  8. QUESTION:
    Serious Benzo Problem?
    Hi,

    I used to suffer from severe social anxiety. It began about 4 years ago when I started full time work (I'm 22). I started in November 2006, and by mid 2007 I weighed over 18st (over 250lb).

    I was never bullied at school; I had a lot of friends both in and out of school. I took the same college course as one of my best friends, met a lot of new people and experienced a lot of new stuff. Bottom line: school, college and social life was... fine, until I started my full time job.

    I was around people I didn't know, and even though it was a very relaxed atmosphere it all felt very formal to me. Of course I was introduced to people, and people made the effort to make small chat with the 'new guy' and help him me in, but I didn't have any of my friends around me, nobody I had grown up since I was a kid, nobody to say "oh, he's just shy, but he's cool, you'll see". If I'm uncomfortable in a social situation, my natural instinct is to keep myself to myself and be quiet. And that's what I've basically been doing... for 4 years.

    During the whole of 2007 I was deeply depressed, I was ashamed to be out in public, I didn't get a haircut for over a year, my personal hygiene wasn't great, I once called in sick and spent 5 days in bed simply because I couldn't be bothered to get up. And I lost touch with all my friends. Yes, I have them on Facebook, but I haven't seen them in person for 4 years. Luckily, this year our whole office building was portioned off into different departments, and I get along fine with the 3 guys I work with, I enjoy their company, but they're not my friends. Nobody is, I don't have a single real life friend in the world.

    And the funny thing is, I actually beat over 80 applicants to get the job, out of the 80 people they saw, I was the best, and it’s a great job too! And I did nothing but be myself.

    In early 2008 I went to the doctors, I told him I thought I had social anxiety (looked up the symptoms online) and asked what he could do. Well, the first thing he did was take my pulse and blood pressure because my heart was beating like it was about to explode. He ended up prescribing me with beta-blockers and off I went. They did nothing. I went back a few more times and even asked about being prescribed benzos. But with no luck
    So... I started to self prescribe. I did a LOT of research before buying benzos online. I found a UK supplier, he wasn't cheap, but he was good, friendly and helpful. I ordered 50 x 0.5mg Xanax Branded (I never bought generic and always made sure they came in blister packs). I remember taking my first 0.5 xanax pill on the way to work, and 10 minutes later feeling like I was cured. I was able to eat a sandwich on my way to work. I know how stupid that sounds, but walking past traffic knowing everyone could see me was the worst part of my mornings, but that morning, I didn't care, I even had the confidence to eat as they watched me.

    I think I took 3 pills a day, and then upped it to 1mg 3 x a day, and then they were gone. This guy only had generic xanax in stock when I went back, so I did my research and went with 50 x 10mg valium (Roche, never generic).

    It worked. But I kept upping the dosage, I just felt as though it wasn't having the same effect. What started out as a 30mg a day habit turned into a 150mg to 200mg a day habit. I started buying in the thousands. I ordered my last batch of 1000 x 10mg Valium early this year and they ran out about. I now have 1000 park-davis Xanax, 1mg. I haven't been taking them long, but I probably grab a hand full of 10 to 15 pills each morning on my way to work.

    When I'm on benzos, I'm shy at worst. I need them to work. And yes I've been for help; I was put on a waiting list this January for CBT. But I've been fucked about. It’s now going to be 18 month before anything will happen. That means 18 more months of Benzos!

    I've decided to deal with this in my own way. After all I don't have a disease; it's all in my head. The first thing I'm doing is running the London Marathon in 2011 for charity. I'm no longer fat, I'm actually my ideal BMI and am currently training every night. I've stopped drinking, I never took up smoking, and I'm looking forward to it. I will be on Benzos when I do it, I have to be. Which brings me back to my original question... am I really that intolerant to benzos, or am I doing some serious damage with the quantities I'm taking?

    Sorry to babble on, and thank you if you read all this. I had a lot to get off my chest...

    • ANSWER:
      Try to cut back on the Benzos as much as you can. And find somewhere to volunteer. Sometimes if you focus on helping others you forget about your own issues.

  9. QUESTION:
    Help Me Pin Down Best Anxiety Drug For Me (I've Tried Several & The Best So Far Is...)?
    I need your help here. I suffer from anxiety which at times (about twice a year) gets so bad that I will go into a real deep depression. I just couldn't stand it over the last week or so where I'm shaking and don't sleep well, obsessive thoughts, negative thinking, etc.

    I've been on Risperdal for the last three weeks and it was working well until about a week ago where the jitters started coming back along with the thoughts, trouble sleeping, being slightly paranoid, etc. I have also Vistarel that I can take as needed but after the 2nd or 3rd day even if I triple the dose the stuff just doesn't do anything. In fact, I think it's making my jitters worse.

    I just couldn't stand it anymore so I got my hands on some valiums yesterday and took 10MG before I went to bed. I haven't slept that well in a LONG time. This morning I took another 10MG and I'm telling you what, I have not felt this "normal" in about 20 years. I'm calm, not having obsessive worry thoughts, my hands aren't shaking. In other words I feel really good and normal like I did years ago. I don't feel drugged up or high or anything like that. Just normal.

    I told my doctor this and she said that she will not prescribe me valiums due to their addictive nature. Heck, I don't even want to take these things every day so I'll got hooked on them. Just here and there when my anxiety gets bad so I can function. I don't want to get addicted to anything either. I can honestly say though that I have not felt this good, calm, and just plain normal and well in about 20 years.

    So my question for you is what other drug works on the same part of the brain like valiums that I can ask to be put on? Is Xanax something that might work well? I know that's addictive too but darn it I'll just take the stuff when I need it. Most of the time my nerves are good enough not to need something.

    Here's what I've been on thus far: Lexapro after 2 or 3 months made me not care about anything, which was bad because that included work or other responsibilities. It never made me feel good either, just dead inside. Paxil after 2 weeks made my anxiety worse. It was like doing speed or something and I couldn't sit still. Neorontine didn't do anything for me and was like a depressant. Vistarel doesn't do anything after the 2nd or 3rd day. Klonopin was OK but not as good as these valiums. And like I said, Risperdal was working really well for a week or two but now it doesn't seem to be working as well.

    So if valium is working this well for me that tells me it is doing something that my brain needs in order to not be anxious, worry, obsesses, be slightly paranoid, and so on. It's helping me sleep too and like I said I just can't believe how GOOD I feel. With all the above in mind I'm hoping somebody can suggest a drug that the doctor might be willing to prescribe me that might work in some what the same way as Valium. I really need help here because as it stands my anxiety has been too bad to work. I'd even be willing to trade addiction to this stuff if it means feeling this well, calm, and normal. Thanks for any input because I have to fix this! Oh, and I am taking cognetive therapy classes as well but this is a genetic thing that runs in my family so I reall think I need to take some kind of drug to make up for what my mind is lacking.

    • ANSWER:
      A large number of benzodiazepines are available. There are major differences in potency between different benzodiazepines, so that equivalent doses vary as much as 20-fold. For example, 0.5 milligrams (mg) of alprazolam (Xanax) is approximately equivalent to 10mg of diazepam (Valium). Thus a person on 6mg of alprazolam daily, a dose not uncommonly prescribed in the US, is taking the equivalent of about 120mg of diazepam, a very high dose. These differences in strength have not always been fully appreciated by doctors, and some would not agree with the equivalents given here. Nevertheless, people on potent benzodiazepines such as alprazolam, lorazepam (Ativan) or clonazepam (Klonopin) tend to be using relatively large doses. This difference in potency is important when switching from one benzodiazepine to another, for example changing to diazepam during withdrawal, as described in the next chapter.

      Speed of elimination
      Benzodiazepines also differ markedly in the speed at which they are metabolised (in the liver) and eliminated from the body (in the urine). For example, the "half-life" (time taken for the blood concentration to fall to half its initial value after a single dose) for triazolam (Halcion) is only 2-5 hours, while the half-life of diazepam is 20-100 hours, and that of an active metabolite of diazepam (desmethyldiazepam) is 36-200 hours. This means that half the active products of diazepam are still in the bloodstream up to 200 hours after a single dose. Clearly, with repeated daily dosing accumulation occurs and high concentrations can build up in the body (mainly in fatty tissues). There is a considerable variation between individuals in the rate at which they metabolise benzodiazepines.

      I think Xanax would work well for you. It is stronger than Valium and, therefore, you can take a smaller dose and get the same effect. It is probably more potent and your physician would probably be apprehensive about prescribing it as well. My advice, go to a different physician.

  10. QUESTION:
    This LEGAL question about letting a patient die without her consent?
    I just placed an extremely long story_more than a question in itself_in the health section, but it was placed by yahoo in the pregnancy one. I've asked people to search for it there so they can help me. But it seems to me I should also be adding it here int he LEGAL one:

    An elderly person who suffers from respiratory and heart problems, but who very much wants to live, is not being treated properly by medical staff, including doctors. The story is extremely long but I'll tell it as brief as possible:

    She's in her early eighties, was misdiagnosed with cancer based simply on one X-ray and fact that she was long time smoker and looked thin and frail. Previously had been told couple years earlier she was suffering from emphysema. But doctors ignored this and went ahead with cancer diagnosis. Was basically sent home to die, without any other tests or further X-rays, etc. Months later while in emergency room_due to lack of proper meds and treatments_doctor going by wrong diagnosis to which I informed him about, went ahead and did complete brain scan and apparently scans of lungs as well. He came back with news of zero cancer in brain, and only scaring in the lungs, which everyone else should have known about by then and which we were told couple of years earlier.

    Now, and after many doctors repeating that she's at end stage of COPD, and suffering from CHF, attrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, apparent damage to adrenal glands_and who knows if anything else, for they only search for further things once I've either repeatedly asked or given the WHOLE LIST OF SYMPTOMS, whether new or old_she's been sent home once again earlier than she should have, even after having suffered much blood loss couple of hours before discharge from hospital.

    Doctors main concern is to inform me she's at end stage, that next time they will probably not intubate her, that social workers can send hospice home, and that if family wants her to live like this. I thoroughly explained IT IS NOT ONLY FAMILY who wants her to live IT IS HER as well. She insists on been taken to hospital when she knows her breathing is not right.

    At this very moment she's at home, having had a really bad night. Once again whole family is guessing as to what it could be. She was shaking for quite some time at midnight. It could well have been the 37 degrees temeperature outside and her insisting on not been covered for she's always hot even when others are freezing. Still I did cover her, gave her the 30mg dialtizem prescribed, plus the 10mg prednisone, plus the pepcid. And I also gave her the tiny dose of Xanax which is the .25 prescribed by physician three days ago. I know for a fact that if she were at hospital they would check out for all symptoms before deciding to give her xanax. I wouldn't have given it to her because her breathing has not been normalized since coming back. They keep sending her home in very poor condition.

    I could describe in perfect details why I know this is the case. They had also offered to send a nurse and a hospital bed and NOTHING has happened.

    I know that most people would say "Just suit them!" And the many suits to hospitals, doctors, etc. are very well deserved from what I have experienced in nearly a dozen hospitalizations in these last three years. I do know also that MEDICARE apparently refuses to pay for certain things. I have no idea which. I would very much need LEGAL counsel but cannot afford to spend days on the phone searching for lawyers whom would probably take the case once she IS DEAD.

    Is there a COURT I can go to to make sure this person is not left to die this way?

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to be very adament that this woman get the medical treatment she needs, and I commend you for that. We should never just assume that she's lead a full life, so let her go. She is being misdiagnosed because they dont want to put in the effort and her insurance just isnt good enough.
      Since you've been helping this woman and have been verbal enough to push them for more tests, Im gonna assume that you have already threatened medical malpractice suit. Not actually attempt it, but just threatened. They will do their best to get away with as much as possible. They want to get paid. So if you threaten them with 'contacting your attorney and will file a medical malpractice suit against the doc, the hospital, and anyone else involved in her care', you may get more results (even if you dont have an attorney).
      If you have already done that, then you may need to contact a personal injury lawyer and tell them from the beginning that it is concerning an emergency situation of medical malpractice. You need action now, not 6 weeks from now. You can also call the district attorneys office and ask what court you need to contact in order to enforce emergency medical procedures.

      Oh! I found a law that actually prohibits the actions they are taking. It is called EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment And Active Labor Act). Throw that in their face and see if they refuse to test her.

  11. QUESTION:
    Help with my Depressed Mother?
    I am 25 years old and at my wits end. My mother is 59 and has no luster for life anymore. Over the past 10 years she has been diagnosed with Severe depression, bi-polar disorder, OCD, psychosis, and PTSD. she has been seeing the same shrink for the past ten years and has been on many many many different medications. I believe she is currently on Xanax, Lexipro, Trazadone, Percocet (for back pain), and some sort of muscle relaxers. Over the past ten or fifteen years thing just seem to have gotten worse and worse. When I was about 12 or 13 (about 12 years ago), she would attempt suicide on a regular basis. Since then that has not been so frequent but she is never happy. She rarely smiles, she barely gets out of bed or leaves the house. I feel as though nothing is helping or has helped for the last 15 years. I am to the point where I have almost given up hope. When we do talk all she does is tell me how horrible everything is, even when I try to talk about anything else. I have been supportive over the years but I now no longer want to be around her as her company give me pretty bad anxiety and makes me feel incredibly depressed myself, but if I don't spend enough time with her she goes on and on about how no one loves her and how she is better off dead. I really feel like there is no hope after all these years, but I am scared because again, when I was in my tweens and early teens she would repeatedly attempt suicide in front of me and that pretty much scared me and I feel if I dont spend enough time with her she will kill herself and I dont want that and could never handle that guilt. I just am not really sure what to do at this point in my life. Is there hope for her? Should I just remove myself from her? I am really lost about this. Any words of wisdom? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry you're going through this, I know from personal experience it is very hard. My mother had terrible experiences before I was ever born, and sometimes I feel a little resentful that I have had to pay such a high price for something that wasn't my fault (she was too occupied by her emotional/mental state to keep her kids safe). When that happens I tell myself that it's not personal, it's part of her disorder, and that she's not the same person she was when I was young. I also tell myself that I will not turn into her, because our individual experiences are not the same. Sometimes it works.
      I cared for my mom for a long time, but it was just too much of a drain. I put her up in an independent living facility for old folks that had a ton of light, and very kind people in it (not a mental facility). We have a CRMA do her pills, and she has a nurse come in to give her shots. Having people come in from the outside may help her gain some perspective. It seems to have worked for my mom.
      When she first went in, I visited a lot (because it was a huge change). Then it gradually whittled down to twice a week. Her behavior really improved over a period of a few years, not over night. She will never be a social butterfly, but every now and then I'm able to coax her out for a walk to get the mail.
      If I were you, I would definitely seek professional help, in the form of social programs as well as counseling. You should not feel guilt if you have to distance yourself from her if she is self destructing. If you don't gain distance and perspective you may destruct too. If she is behaving in a suicidal manner, call 911 and let the professionals deal with it, you are not trained to handle it. Saving yourself is the noblest thing to do in some circumstances.

  12. QUESTION:
    I am going insane. my untreated anxiety has gotten so bad that I literally feel insane. help?
    long story short, I've been suffering greatly with anxiety/EXTREME panic attacks (aka the attacks themselves last for HOURS and they're so bad that I spend the entire time hyperventilating through my nose and obsessively trying to clear out mucus that sometimes isn't even there), agoraphobia, and an addiction to xanax, for about 8 months now. I don't leave my house, I'm always sedated with the xanax, I never feel comfortable or relaxed, I can't breathe, and I don't know what to do. but now over the past few days it's gotten worse. I don't know if it's because I suddenly feel sick as well (very stuffy nose, losing my voice, throat hurts, feverish, achy, etc), but normally I wouldn't have panic attacks very often as long as I didn't leave my house and took my xanax. I'd usually work out in the afternoon and be able to make it until around dinnertime before I took one. as of 3 days ago I guess, I can't even get through the workout. I start going into a sniffling/hyperventilation fit while on the machine, and end up freaking out, jumping off, and pacing around the house in the middle of an attack, which I can NEVER calm myself down from, no matter how hard I try. it's just a whole lot of suffering until the xanax finally kicks in and offers me minimal relief for a very short period of time. I used to be able to go the rest of the day just taking small doses of xanax every couple of hours, and by the time bedtime rolled around (4am or so), I'd feel nice and "high" and sleepy and would usually be able to fall asleep pretty quickly without focusing on my breathing and sniffling like I always do. but the worst part is, during the past couple of days I've been so terrified and so unable to calm down during the attacks, that I've resorted to branding myself twice (burning a design into my skin similar to tattoing, but I did it with a mini screwdriver and a bic lighter), and piercing my own nose (with a real piercing needle, but still). aside from a brief stay at a short-term care facility, a few weeks with a REALLY useless therapist, and a session here and there with psychologists, I've remained untreated, just taking the xanax every day and living as a recluse with absolutely NO remnants of the normal life I lived for the past 23 years. I don't know what to do. right now it's almost 5am, I've already taken a lot of xanax, and I still can't calm down enough to just lay down and go to sleep. I'm so congested that I feel like I can't breathe, and so once I lay down I'm extremely focused on my breathing and have to jump out of bed and start pacing around looking for something to help myself.

    does anyone have any advice? I've asked a million yahoo questions having to do with this whole thing over the past 8 months, but I've never seemed to get an answer that helped me. I feel like I need some VERY intensive and frequent therapy, and I don't see how going to see a shrink once a week is going to do that for me. this isn't something where I can function and deal with treatment gradually, I am literally at zero functioning and need to be treated IMMEDIATELY. I'm not suicidal or a threat to myself or anyone else, so I'm not calling a suicide hotline and being committed (I made that mistake once and the trauma of being forced to stay in short-term care actually made me WORSE in the long run).

    what do I do? anyone ever go through something like this and actually come out alright in the end? all I want is my life back. I'm not asking for a lot, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes, so long as it's really going to cure me. I can't live one more day being absolutely terrified of BREATHING, something so necessary for life.
    I know that I need therapy, and probably will need it for a long, long time from now to work out all the issues I've spent my entire life developing. but right now I feel (and it's true) that I am SO sick that just going to see someone once a week isn't going to help me. I'm not the sort of person who gets immediate results with anything, and having to wait 6 day and 23 hours between sessions is going to be like an eternity.

    and I did call a couple of hotlines, and all of them said to call back during normal business hours, blah blah. what the hell kinda mental health hotline is only open M-F 9-5? I'm gonna try another couple tomorrow, but I don't know. does anyone know the TYPES of treatments available, aside from weekly therapy or straight up loony bin hospitalization?

    btw, before anyone recommends antidepressants, they just don't work for me. I'm one of those people who gets almost every single side effect on the list but with none of the intended relief.
    stacy, I've been prescribed the xanax and certainly don't abuse it. I take it daily as prescribed...actually I take a lower dose than I'm prescribed, as of yet I've never touched the amount it says for me to take on the bottle. as for the branding, the only reason I did it was NOT to hurt myself, but because the anxiety was so terrifying and so high above any of the other attacks I've had, that the only thing that seemed to be able to distract me was severe physical pain. I didn't enjoy it, it disgusted me (especially the smell of my skin burning) and it made me feel CRAZY that I was doing it, but so long as my skin was sizzling, for those brief moments I wasn't hyperventilating. I'm praying that the spike in anxiety over the past few days is just from feeling like I have the flu or whatever this is.
    Ivan--I've had anxiety since I was 10 years old, and I've had it at this severity for 8 months now, so I've spent tons of time researching. in the beginning, the xanax was like a MIRACLE cure. I felt like I was able to just sit down and relax and just breathe again. but nowadays it's almost like I'm just taking the xanax to alleviate the extra anxiety that seems to be caused by my body wanting/needing more and more xanax. and therapy hasn't worked for me so far because every time I finally get to see a therapist, my lack of insurance ends up screwing me over and I end up on my own again.
    there's something I'm not sure I clarified yet or not--this is a CONSTANT feeling. 24/7. no matter what I do, whether I'm distracted, whether or not I'm actually having an attack, whether I'm on xanax, exercising, etc, I always have this feeling of just...death. like I'm plugged into an outlet, just getting shocked over and over again. I'll shake my legs without even noticing, I feel all foggy and spaced out (kind of like I'm in a dream), I have this tightness and an unexplainable sensation in my chest, my breathing is extremely erratic and often very shallow when I'm not hyperventilating and trying to catch my breath. I just feel very, very sick. my body aches. I don't know if this is the xanax addiction or what, but it feels terrible. I wish I had a better way to explain it.

    • ANSWER:
      I COMPLETELY feel you man. From the million questions to the unbelievable anxiety.

      Its not too much to ask for your life back, and so am i to cure my anxiety. Dude go to an impatient unit in the hospital, they all have it, just go in there. Say you have something else if you gotta (suicidal), theyll really access you, sedate you, help you etc. Your already on benzos (like me) and its not helping, so obviously switch em around and try something like anti-phychotics for sedation. Get yourself committed! Why not ****. I would never tell you too call a hotline. but what was your problem with the comitted (to a brother with as much anxiety, or more, let me know! im at my end with it too). But thats horrible man, anxiety is the most crippling thing and the help for us is so hard. Go on klonopin or some benzo that lasts a long time. Smoke some weed if you gotta (its less harmfull than caffein). I AM gonna come out at the end so right here *points thumbs*, and so will you my brother. So stay in touch. I know i seem calm but ha i could make you look like a shrink next to me when it comes to anxiety and panic. So your not crazy!

  13. QUESTION:
    Marriage problems. Should I get divorced?
    Today is an especially scary day. My husband started back to work last week and was expecting his last unemployment check today, so we could buy groceries and pay bills, you know how it goes, anyway, he didn't get his check. O.K. so you are saying what the french right? Well I have been with "Vinny" since 2003 and have never been loved so well by a man or scared of his anger. I started taking Xanax after I had a bad anxiety attack in 2005. He is always great until the subject of money comes up. He flips out when he realizes he is broke. He says how it sucks that he works just to be broke and I tell him, "welcome to the world" and then he says I don't understand because I don't work, as if that's the way I want it to be. He is a roofer and works only seasonally, I am unemployed and going to college for my bachelors degree in Business Management. Although I get income from survivor benefits for my children and have ALWAYS paid our rent since we got together, his job is to pay the other bills, more often than not I pay those as well, especially in his off months and yet he resents me for not working. I was laid off from my job ( a mortgage company, lol) in 2007 and have been unable to find another job.

    So here I am broke every month and sitting in fear of how I am going to pull the next rabbit out of my hat to keep him from throwing a mantrum. He will get depressed and go to bed, get up go to work, come home and eat and go back to bed. And I cannot stand feeling as though I have done something wrong when it's an issue neither of us can control. I try so hard and have for the last 5 1/2 years to keep him happy, to take care of him, and to try to relieve some of his pressure ( he has no kids of his own). He married me with three kids and I guess supposed it was going to be a piece of cake. I just cannot get him to be the man I need him to be so I can stop feeling so anxious all the time and on the edge of a nervous breakdown. I feel I do more than my fair share and still...here I sit scared of his reactions to the news when he comes home. No, he has never hit me but he has thrown words sharper than swords aimed at my heart. I feel like a divorce is in order but I don't know. I always told myself if it's worth saving save it but this relationship has seen all its best days already I think because he won't grow up or mature until he sees what he has lost because of it. Right? Just in case you needed to know this info he is 35, almost 36 and I just turned 41. This is our first marriage. I have always been in long relationships (from 3 years to 11 years) so I think I have a pretty good idea how to do it, his longest relationship was 6 months. It just seems like if emotions aren't centered around him on a regular basis none of us will ever be happy, whether or not they are good or bad, he has to be the center of attention. This spills over into intimate parts of our lives as well. I am so confused and making myself even more so writing this. Advice anyone?
    To Yesyou- Find me one and we'll both be happy
    To DD "Bottom line is that they add more to my life than the money I'd have if they weren't part of it." This is what I have been hoping to hear him say for 5 years.

    To everyone else, I do do my share of paying for things, hell I am under more pressure financially than he is, as I pay out over a ,000.00 a month as it is. I have tried to be understanding and have tried to educate him about how life works but all he hears is yada yada yada blah blah blah. I have put it all out on Front street over these last three weeks and he says he wants to stay married and that he loves me, but his actions are always so angry and directed toward me when he's angry and frustrated that it's hard to believe otherwise. Even when I had a job I still always have paid the rent, that's 0.00 a month for the last 5 years and 10 months. It's never been late and we have never been evicted. What more do I need to do for Heaven's sake?

    • ANSWER:
      Having married a woman who had three kids from her first marriage, I can relate (a little). I have always made more money than my (now) wife, but it has never really been a problem for us. The last few years have been rough ever since she was cut down to working only part time and I have been paying all the bills. It's been hard sometimes to get a paycheck and see it gone almost right away. But we tighten our expenses where we can and get through it. She has just started a new job and some relief is on the way (which will be welcome after my paying more in federal taxes than she has made over the past couple of years).

      I guess where I differ from "Vinny" is that I don't throw a mantrum over money. Once we have everything we need to get through until the next paycheck we stay home and ride it out. When it really starts to get to me I start looking at ways I can make more money, which my wife hates because then I'd spend even more time working than I do now. Bottom line is that they add more to my life than the money I'd have if they weren't part of it. That's the choice "Vinny" has to make, and if he doesn't realize that you and the kids do that then it is his loss (in my humble opinion). He has a choice to make, and from the sounds of the point you are at it sounds like he is running out of time to make it or you are going to make it for him (he may look back on that with regret if he lets it happen that way).

      I guess the only advice I can give you is that you need to talk this out with him and remind him that this is only temporary until you finish school. Even though that may take years, it is not forever. If he can't handle that then ...

      Maybe start him off with a little humor about it:

Will Viagra Make Me Last Longer

Male impotence, also popularly known as erectile dysfunction, is a very much known medical condition among men. This medical condition causes difficulties in achieving erection, it sometimes leaves other men to have no erection at all. And if an erection does come up it is not quite hard enough for sexual intercourse and is eventually lost before or during an intercourse. It affects almost over half of the men past forty years of age in some varying degrees, this gives us the idea that the development of erectile dysfunction is quite determined by age. However, erectile dysfunction is not something that we must easily accept as natural, it is considered a medical condition and it is must therefore be treated with medications that are proven safe and effective.

For over many years, Viagra has established a safety record among its users. Otherwise known by its generic name as sildenafil citrate, Viagra has been considered to be the most viable solution for erectile dysfunction by over twenty million men. Through several clinical studies, Viagra has been found out to be effective in helping men achieve an erection, maintain their erection for a considerably long period of time, and get harder erections that are suitable for sexual intercourse. It works by relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow towards certain parts of the body.

However, not all men may be able to use sildenafil citrate, especially those who are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. Taking Viagra together with nitrate drugs can cause a significant decrease in blood pressure. This may lead to fainting, or even worse, stroke or heart attack. You may also have to take several doses readjustments or special tests if you have had certain health conditions like heart disease or heart rhythm problems, recent history of heart attacks, stroke and other heart disorders, high or low blood pressure, liver or kidney diseases, hemophilia, stomach ulcer, or retinitis pigmentosa before you can safely start using Viagra.

Some people may have allergic reactions from taking Viagra, so if any of these symptoms symptoms come out, immediately contact your doctor for immediate medical attention: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. In some rare cases, Viagra could have serious side effects on the body during on a sexual activity, these may include sudden vision loss, hearing loss, chest pain, nausea, sweating, irregular heartbeat, swelling in the hands or ankle, fainting, and erection that can last beyond four hours. If any of the symptoms show during the use of Viagra, immediately seek medical attention.

  4. QUESTION:
    Can Masturbation help me last longer in bed?
    My girlfriend takes FOREVER to reach orgasm through intercourse. She says it's not a problem, but I know it has to be a little disappointing. Even when I take care of her with foreplay "a head" of time, I still only last on average about 15-20 minutes with sex.

    So I've been reading about different methods to practice training myself not to orgasm for a while. I seem to have trained myself since I was a teenager how to orgasm as quick as possible while masturbating. If I try and masturbate for 30min-1hour each time, eventually, do you think this will train my body how to control my urge to orgasm, or at least pro-long it?

    I really don't want to get any drugs. I tried Viagra once and all that did was make me last so long that we both got tired. I want this to be natural. I've also heard that it's best to never masturbate when you have a woman in your life because not only will she be offended, but it would condition the body to quick orgasms.

    I'm hoping that with "practice masturbation", I can train myself to last longer with my girlfriend, so that by the time we get married and the condom comes off, I'll be a little more satisfying to her.

    TO YAHOO: Please don't delete this question. I really want some decent input on this topic. I want to know what people think about this. I plan to be married within a year and a half.

    Thanks.

But, if you take Viagra an hour before the sexual encounter, then after the first ejaculation, if you continue the sexual encounter, will the Viagra help you achieve a strong erection again soon (within minutes) after the first ejaculation? (I can sometimes do this anyway but not reliably.) This isn't something I would want to take often, only on rare occasions.

    While I'm at it, what other advice can mature adult men offer to a man unsatisfied with his sexual stamina. I haven't timed it but I probably usually only last for 5-10 minutes of actual intercourse.

    Please only respond if you have legitimate input on this issue and can express it in a serious and positive way.

    • ANSWER:
      viagra won't do much for you. see the article below.

      Q. What Happens if You Take Viagra and You Don't Really Need It?

      A. Men who say they don't have any problems achieving or maintaining erections say that using Viagra dramatically changes the sexual experience, but not always in a good way.

      They say taking Viagra gives them a far more rigid erection that is so intense that it's almost uncomfortable, causing them to lose some sensation and making it difficult to finally achieve orgasm. One person described the feeling like puffing your cheeks full of air and then pushing them out as hard as you can.

      Others say the physical reaction happens so effortlessly that it becomes intense long before the man's own level of excitement can catch up, creating a feeling of detachment. "The disembodied feeling is a really profound feeling," says the ViagraStories.com editor, a 33-year-old San Francisco man who has used the drug three times.

      Mr. Brykman, managing editor of National Lampoon, used only one of the six pills his doctor gave him, and also says he felt disassociated from the experience. He says that although physically it worked, "it didn't have anything to do with arousal. As far as excitement levels or arousal levels, it didn't live up to my expectations."

      Those who have used Viagra "recreationally," however, say the drug, nonetheless, makes it much easier to sustain an erection and achieve a second erection relatively quickly after orgasm.

      Pfizer balks at the notion of a recreational use for Viagra, contending that if someone can feel the effect of Viagra, then they, by definition, have lost some sexual function. And the reality is, sexual function starts to fade in the 20s.

      "Viagra helps to improve erectile function which isn't optimal, " says Pfizer's Dr. Sweeney. "If you're a 20-year-old college guy with no diseases and you have great erectile function, it's not going to do anything for you. It can't make it go beyond normal."

  7. QUESTION:
    How much Viagra is too much?
    My boyfriend has been taking half of a pill to make them last longer, but even though he gets an erection, i am wondering if taking the whole pill will get him even harder..he claims that viagra doesnt work that way, that taking more doesnt make you harder. he says a whole pill gives him a headache too.,,

    • ANSWER:
      Leave it be. I am sure you would welcome some R&R (rest and respite),lol.

  8. QUESTION:
    What would be the best male inhancement for me?
    Well you see i have a good sex life it's just that I want that extra feeling. My problem is like this, I can put out for hours if i want to, thats not the problem at all. The problem is that I think im short on one end if you know what i mean....I don't want viagra bcause that will make me last longer, i just want something to make me bigger...can someone help me please

    • ANSWER:
      There is no way to make yourself bigger (permanently) other than surgery.

      Pumps can increase your size just a little bit for a short period of time.

      A much better solution is to learn to love your penis just the way it is!

  9. QUESTION:
    What is a good herbal remedy for erectile dysfunction and will these remedies really work and to what extent.?
    I AM 56 YRS. OLD AND I AM A SMOKER . THIS PROBABLY DOESNT HELP. BUT WHAT CAUSES ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION AND IS THERE ANY HOPE BESIDES VIAGRA TYPE DRUGS. I HAVE HEARD THAT HERBAL REMEDIES WORK BUT NEED TO KNOW WHICH ONES AND DO THEY DO WHAT THEY CLAIM. THAT IS TO MAKE ERECTIONS HARDER AND LAST LONGER AND RETURN TO NORMAL SEXUAL FUNCTION.I AM AT WITS END AND DO NOT WANT TO RELY SOLELY ON VIAGRA.IN OTHER WORDS I WOULD LIKE TO GET AN ERECTION SPONTANEOUSLY WITH MY GIRLFRIEND RATHER THAT WAITING AN HOUR AND A HALF FOR THE VIAGRA OR CIALIS TO WORK.ALSO I FIND THIS VERY DEPRESSING AND SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION ANYWAY SO THIS DOESNT HELP.PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN I NEED TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM .

    • ANSWER:
      Well, yes smoking they say does add to the problem due to the oxygen in the blood is needed for an erection. It all depends on what length you will go in order to having a fullfilling sex life.
      The reason I say this is I was with a man for 12 yrs first few years he had the same problems you are going through and yes it does so heavy work on a man's mind to the point of depression. They feel as if they are only half a man. My heart went out to him for in every other way we had a very good relantionship. So I took it upon myself to see what I could find out . I was able to locate a clinic that dealt only in erectile dysfunction for I figured it would be easier for him knowing that evey man he saw as he walked in had the exact same problem that he did. Well I cut the paper clipping out of the paper and as we were talking one night I gave it to him for we did discuss his problem he carried it around for 2-3 months for I never pressured him about it. Then he decided to give it a try, after discussing it with the doctors his choice was a shot that is given in the penis ohh a very small needle it scared me more than him. He said after the first injection and getting over the fear that they did not hurt at all. Well let me tell ya we are talking instant erection and for up to 2-3 hours. Viagra has nothing over the shots. Cost of the shots ran - each. He would get 10 at a time already in the syringe and had to be keep refrigrated. So it is up to you but for sure you do need to see your doctor this happens to men from the age of 18-90 it has no age factor. Good luck But you must take the first step. He made the comment later that he wished he had known about the shots a lot sooner for he got his manhood back and could not be any happier. Well the shot he used was only given one time did not have to inject twice in order for it to work. Also for the ones that have heart problems Viagra is not a good choice were the doctors said the shot would not affect the ones with heart problems or there meds.

  10. QUESTION:
    Is this true that I might last longer during intercourse with a real women than I do while watching porn?
    I'm 21 and a virgin.I watch porn It is either I ejaculate after 3-7 minutes of my erection or have a erection 15-25 minutes and not ejaculate and I then need to stimulate it again with my hands and then after 2 minutes I ejaculate. I try to last long.The most I was able to get to was 25 minutes but then it goes down so I have to wait a minute then ejaculate after 2 minutes or it gets to the point I ejaculate without an erection.I do it 2-4 times a day.I am 21 years old.I asked my psychiatrist whom I'm seeing for a mental illness about it and asked him if I need viagra he answered and said viagra is for old men who can't get it at all.I can't maintain it without using my hands but even when I'm sometimes using my hands it goes down and I lose interest in the sex scene I'm watching. I once watched a 35 minute sex movie and ejaculates after 17 minutes.I don't have trouble starting an erection I just have trouble maintaining it.I am a virgin and I never kissed or had sex with a women.A friend told me that I might last longer with a real women because I'm doing more touching.I'm worried that I might not last during vaginal sex and I'm 21 and a virgin.I heard that porn makes you not preform well.

    A friend told me I'm young and with a real women I will last longer because I'm not just seeing like porn I'm actually touching her.Like her breasts.I'm in close contact.Is that true will I preform better and last longer during the real thing?

    • ANSWER:
      Masturbating and sex are very different experiences, believe me.

      If you are young, once you are in there the least of your troubles is not being able to get it up.

      And keeping it up for 25 minutes with porn is quite an achievement, most guys finish in 3 minutes.

      In fact, once I was skimming through stuff in a sex shop (quite a creepy one as I found out once I got in...) and there where porn boots charging 3 bucks for three minutes or something like that...

      I didn't have the courage to get go check the inside myself, but apparently it was a room with a tv that showed porn for three minutes...

      So, your dick works like a charm, don't worry, you'll probably perform better than most men.

  11. QUESTION:
    Premature ejaculation problem. (I will choose best answer for actual helpful answers)?
    When my boyfriend and I have sex he doesn't last very long. If were having slow soft sex he can usually last about 30 min to an hour. And that's not a problem. But I like sex to be kind of rougher. I like it deep and fast. And when we try to have sex this way Im lucky if he can last 5 min. And if I want him to last longer we have to stop for a few seconds during sex so he can concentrate on not cumming. So my question is: is there any way to make a guy last longer in bed without using any kind of medications? He is young and healthy so I don't want like Viagra or anything like that. Just a healthy natural way to help him last longer.
    Also. I cant get him to go another round. Weve tried rubbing one out and then trying again. But he doesnt like it.

    • ANSWER:
      What you've described is not premature ejaculation! I seriously hope you have not told your boyfriend you think he has a problem because is going to get a complex. 30 minutes is exceptionally long and an hour is just ridiculous; some people would consider it a problem if it actually took that long. 5 minutes is actually very good especially if he's pounding away. According to my human sexuality professor, 4-5 minutes is a pretty good length of time for penetrative thrusting. If this is too short a time for you to come, then have him go down on you first or have him use a toy on you in order to work you up before he penetrates you. There is more to sex than penetration which is why foreplay is such an important part of so many people's sex lives.

  12. QUESTION:
    If I ever get another girlfriend, would a MD be willing to prescribe me a little Viagra?
    Just to last longer, and make things better. My libido is ok, just not as big as many others I'm sure. I ask this because I am only 30.
    That's an honest first answer. 30 pills would last me many moons. And I am not sure if I will be ready for another woman. It might take a long time.
    Sex is no longer considered anything but true love.
    This is not an easy question, in fact it's embarrassing. Thank you for the good answers.

    • ANSWER:
      Viagra and similar products are available free if you ask your doctor about it (they get plenty of free samples because the drug companies figure if you try it once, you will buy more). I am sure there are some real valid cases where it is medically necessary but I suspect that the vast majority of doses are taken simply to "enhance" the experience.

      If your doctor asks about why you want it, give him a couple answers right from the Viagra commercials or websites. Their not likely to do any diagnostic testing on you unless you have a real medical problem.

  13. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

    • ANSWER:
      If you take Viagra & don't need it - you can screw up your reproductive system big time.
      Some people suffer side effects - such as a sudden drop in blood pressure. You might miss out on all the fun - - if you're dead!!

      Viagra only helps a guy to achieve an erection. It does NOT make you last longer in bed.

  16. QUESTION:
    What would you do?
    My bf of 9 years (we are currently having a lot of problems) the other day while we were in the car says "have u seen one of these before" and drops a little blue pill in my hand. I was shocked (viagra) I asked him why he had it? He said a friend gave it to him and he hasn't taken any. I want to know why he would first have it? Why he would show it to me and then put it back in his car? Should I be concerned? (btw he doesn't have issues in that area just i'm not giving it up in a while) After nine years i think he could be honest and tell me the truth like i want to try something new, see if this really will make it last longer, something, anything, not just show me the pill and say a friend gave it to me cause he likes to take it. And as a side note WHO DOES THAT???? I mean seriously, another man saying to a man "hey i got viagra from my doctor wanna try it???" They are in their middle thirties just so ya know. I'm so flustered with the whole thing. HELP!!
    he says he hasn't taken any of it and if he did he hasn't been having sex with me in a while. just so ya know

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing to do is just to sit down with him, and tell him how you fell about it. And it always helps to do it calmly too. If that is the route he wants to go maybe its not meant for you two to be together. Someone can only cross your line before going to far. Good Luck on your relationship!

  17. QUESTION:
    What is the best sexual position if your man has a small penis?
    What is the best position if your man happens to be small? It doesn't bother me that my latest boyfriend is a little on the smaller side. I'm more determined to find a position that works for us and is satisfying to both. He's about 5" and has trouble on occassion getting it up. It usually just takes a little more stimulation from me. Also, if he takes Viagra will that help him last longer or just help him get it up? He's on blood pressure medicine so I'm not even sure if Viagra is an option. We've "tried" once to have sex and he was able to finish but I don't think he realized that he was never actually inside me. Rather than make the situation embarrassing I just want to know how to help fix it so we're both happy.

    • ANSWER:
      i think you should talk to a doctor or a sex therapist by yourself. or maybe trying talking to him through sex so he'll be more comfortable. tell him that hes not in (i do that) and tell him when he is. help him and guide him.

  19. QUESTION:
    Could I get my boss, Will, fired with all of this information?
    With the help of my co-workers I have composed a list of complaints regarding Will.

    1.) Will gets upset when our department takes a little extra time on break, which is understandable, because there is a policy
    in place that we must follow. However, he thinks it's exceptable for fill room operators to take hour breaks. We understand
    it takes a few extra minutes for fill room operators to gown, but the policy is just the same for them too and not inforced
    upon them. Also, Will himself can be found for hours at a time in the building C break room, chatting it up with whoever.
    Especially if a certain woman from the Chemistry department happens to be taking lunch when he's is. Lead by example.

    2.) There are also times that operators will use their break time to get on a computer, which Will has told us we can
    not do. However, when he's not in the break room, he can be found in his office looking up marathons and golf tournaments online.
    Lead by example.

    Now to the more serious stuff.

    3.) There was a Thursday last Fall when everyone in 2nd shift Capping, building C had vacation days put in for the next
    day (Friday). I had no vacation days left and jokenly asked Will to just let me have the day off. That night he texted
    me until 2:00 am asking for relationship advice and confessing to me that he really liked Beth Jenson. At the end of our
    texting conversation he told me not to worry about coming to work the next day (Friday). He said to consider it a gift
    from him, but not to tell anyone. My fiance, at the time, was a witness to the whole conversation, Nathaniel Glasgow, building
    A capping group leader on 2nd shift.

    4.) There was also a day when he brought Kayla Rodman and I perssimmon ice cream in, for no reason and brought none for the
    rest of his employees. She and I got a lot of crap over the situation from our co-workers, who made claims that we were his
    favorite and how unfair it was of him to do stuff like that for us and not them. Looking back, I agree.

    5.) He has also shared very innappropriate stories with at least three of his employees present. The particular story I have
    in mind involves him taking viagra and being left with an erection for hours, nothing helped him. He can tell stories like
    this to us (Gayle Kesterson, Kayla Rodman and myself) but if we slip a cross word out in his presence, we get a stern talking
    to for an unreasonable amount of time or we get written up.

    6.) There are other things about his personal life that operators should not know. He shared we me that his five year marriage
    ended because he was having sex with Shestin Kurchy from Chemistry who was engaged at the time. His marriage ended and so did
    her engagement.He also shared with me a few months ago that the last time he had gotten laid was three months earlier
    with Shestin.

    7.) My co-worker, Gayle Kesterson, told me today that a few months back she was upset when Will cursed her in line 6. The operators
    in the tray loading room were having issues with the machine, so Will came in to help. Gayle was messing with something
    and dropped a few vials, making Will yell, "Damnit Gayle!"

    8.) I also recently learned that, Kayla Rodman, who is now in building A, had called in to use a sick day. Will forgot to put
    the sick time in and told her he would just give her downtime and also told her not to tell anyone.

    9.) When Kayla worked in building C, Will would refer to us as lesbians. He called her my girlfriend and vice versa. Almost every
    time we went to lunch together he would joke around about us going to the porn store and hitting up the car wash to play
    with "our toys." This situation got so bad, that other co-workers were calling us lesbians resulting in all employees involved
    getting written up.

    10.) Another thing I know about Will that I shouldn't is the older he gets the longer, more saggy his balls get.

    11.) There was also a time when Will was yelling at Kayla and I for not getting all of our make-up washed off. Upset for
    being targeted all the time we told him that one of our co-workers had way more make-up on than us. His exact words were, "She's
    old, I don't notice her." (Referring to Gayle Kesterson)

    12.) He also has shared with several of his employees that he went to a strip club and was disgusted that a pregnant stripper
    asked him for a tip after giving him a lap dance. He wouldn't pay her, but he took the dance!

    13.) Will's getting close to 40 and he's still wanting to have kids. Realizing that time isn't slowing down and he hasn't found
    the right woman, he makes inappropriate, and perverted jokes about adopting an 18 year old Russian girl.

    • ANSWER:
      In general, practice and relaxation will help you deal with the problem. Some men try to distract themselves by thinking non-sexual thoughts (such as naming baseball players and records) to avoid becoming excited too fast.

      Some helpful techniques include the following:

      Masturbate an hour or so before having sex.

      The "stop and start" method:

      This technique involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. The stimulation is then removed for about thirty seconds and then may be resumed. The sequence is repeated until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.

      The "squeeze" method:

      This technique involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. At that point, the man or his partner gently squeezes the end of the penis (where the glans meets the shaft) for several seconds, withholding further sexual stimulation for about 30 seconds, and then resuming stimulation. The sequence may be repeated by the person or couple until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.

  21. QUESTION:
    A problem or not.been eating me up lately.?
    If i do not have s*x more frequently, when I eventually do get it from my wife, I *** under 3 to 5 minutes into it and my d*ck gets soft. When it eventually gets back hard and ready to go a second round which i trust will last very much longer (always), my wife would say she doesn't want to go a second round. She gets back to watching this TV show she watches every freaking time even wakes up at 4 am to watch until she is ready for school and when she comes back from school, she gets back on it until she falls asleep. She says I need viagra, but i have already told her that what i need is frequent s*x to last longer. She gives it up like once a week or two weeks because she doesn't think s*x is important. When we first met and prior to getting married we used to have s*x frequently and it lasts for 45mins to 2 hours, sometimes we could lock ourself up in the room and have it from morning till night back to back. Even before i met her my Ex-gf used to want it all the time which i gave her and she brags to her friends how i last up to 3 hours...but this is not the point. Sometimes I have to just masturbate because i am not getting enough from my wife. I think she doesn't know what she wants because when i ask for it, she says no that she is not in the mood, when i finally persuade her and get in, she enjoys it and even orgasm within 5 minutes with her legs shaking and then her mood swings back to she doesn't want anymore that she's already ***. Honestly this kind of her behavior is sort of making me insecure... about cumming quickly and being deprived of s*x and telling me how i need viagra to stay erect but she doesn't know that all the while i went down is because i came and just do not want to tell her. I am a very s*xually active person... I mean 24/7 will go person. I have talked to her about this severally but nothing has changed.

    • ANSWER:
      Sex, like everything else in a relationship needs to be fair. It is possible to have incompatible sex drives, but if you are truly committed to each other there needs to be a compromise. She had a sex drive that was compatible to yours when you first met, so you need to ask her what's changed. It could be a medical condition. Sex is a deal breaker in the relationship, so you two need to figure out what the problem is and address it. She needs to understand that this is just not going to work for you. I mean, she knows what great sex is. It sounds like you two used to have it all the time - doesn't she want that again too?

    Additional Details
    okay I do not go fast and I have tried a condom it does not work it makes her dry out faster. If I go too slow then its less enjoyable for her. That's why I would not mind being bigger please help me please. By the way during her period was her idea it hurts too much and I hate the shower I do it but hot water don't last long. She bleeds A LOT. For 3 days then light. And another thing I am not giving her yeast infections that she gets because of not enough lube and if we do it more then once I have to wait a week because she is too darn sore. I can only have 2 to 3 times a week that's why I want to last longer!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      1) have either one of you consulted your doctor about your issue? maybe he/ she has something that you could take or a lube that wouldn't interfere with her.
      2) ask a pharmacist what they would recommend
      3) when going at it and you find yourself about to explode slow up a minute and think of some off the wall $h^t that will help you relax so that you can go longer. (unless her moms hot lookin. think about her mom watching you two or something like that)
      you just need to learn self control and good luck to you and your wife

    what can i do about erectile difficulties at age 20?
    Im 21 years old.. I have lost almost all sexual desire.. I NEVER get an erection unless I'm with a girl or make it hard myself, but even then, its not fully hard and doesn't last long. I never get an erection throughout the day... I never wake up with an erection anymore either.

This is a HUGE problem in my life and I need a solution.

    Man Up now sexual exhancer - easy 10 points?
    I never buy stuff like this cause I think most of it doesn't work, however my friend that works at a gas station comes across all kinds of different brands from working there for so long so ive tried a couple which he gave me and the price of them are not cheap, 1 pill for 8.00 and so he said he tried this one called "Man Up now" comes with two capsules with a price of about 8.00 too, on the back it says can last up to 24-72 hours not meaning having a constant erection of course you know but it also says take 1 -2 hours before sex depending if you ate food or not which doesn't make sense to me if it to last that long but anyways, does it work.

    My friend that says it works really good for him, gave me a pack and so ive been holding on it and in about 2 hours going to get some so is it worth it and does it make you go for a while if your some that is usually quick.

    I also have Viagra at the house, not mine but blah blah dont tell me about how I am not to taken others meds just tell me the info, cause like you know they are blue 100mg ones and I usually in the past has cut them inwo about 4 pieces but I will get a horrible headache extreme migraine so that is why I am hesitant on taking it but in comparison what do you think for anyone that has taken man up now or anyone that has experience taking Viagra and the ones that get the headache and extreme dry mouth what do you do not to have that migraine type headache, I am thinking if I decide to take the Viagra I will drink a ton of water and maybe that will help or just try out a manup .hopefully somebody can tell me some good information, easy 10 points;.

  29. QUESTION:
    how to deal with manipulative step daughter?
    I have a husband who is over 20 years older than me and he has a very manipulative 17 yr old daughter who lives in another state but has come to visit a few times. I never met her until after our son was born 2 years into our marriage. (I don't think I would have married him if I knew I would be dealing with this)
    When we first got together he wasn't even on speaking terms with her. He told me he didn't like the way she was, etc
    Now all of a sudden she she says she wants to be back in his life. Shes flown in to visit a few times (with her brother my husbands other kid) and my husband has been at work leaving me with them a majority of the time. To make a long story short it has come to my attention that the girl is going to be a problem for me. She lies, she's manipulative, and she goes out of her way to make me uncomfortable in my own home when my husband isn't around. I can't talk to my husband because he gets defensive of anything I say no matter how I try to put it. He says his daughter likes me and our infant son and I just need to "take her under my wing bc she's confused and has a difficult home life with her mom"
    His daughter is a completely different person when her father is around. When her father is around she kind of clings to me and wants to go everywhere I go basically acts like she likes me. She also dotes on the baby when he is around and talks about wanting to babysit and other bs like that. I play along because I don't really have any other choice.

    When her father isn't around. She bad talks my husband. She told her mother I gave her brother alcohol and tried to get me to talk to her mother on the phone, she makes comments/questions about of sex life like (this is a paraphrase) "dads last gf told me he needed viagra" what the hell do you say to that? she goes out of her way to make me uncomfortable in my own home. also I don't trust her around my infant son because I think she is screwed up

    my question is I don't know how to deal with her. Anytime I talk with my husband he just get defensive, blames her mother, or just simpy says I don't know why she would do that. I know he has had a rocky relationship with her in the past but I think he feels guitly about moving out of state away from her and thus pins her on me to make me deal with her. I know my problems have nothing to do with him having other kids (which is what he likes to make it out to be anytime I say anything) because I have absolutely NO ill feelings of his son.

    I don't know what do. How do you deal with a 17 yr old that acts like a sweethearted angel when the father is around to gain his approval but then turns around and gives me hell when hes not around? He has been talking about having her stay for long extended periods of time in the future like this summer or even for good after she finishes h.s.

    Should I try to deal with the daughter directly since she is 17 and I'm clearly not getting through to the father or will this just backfire. Hoping someone has been in a similar situation that would know what to say or do or act. Is there anything else I can do besides leave?

    • ANSWER:
      I know allot of people like to bag step mom's and I had a pretty nasty one while growing up too.

      I think what you have to do here is maybe just be pleasant, as much as this is going to kind of kill you, just really make her feel welcome and then when the S**t hits the fan you can at least say you opened her into the family.

      Whatever happened between your husband and her is their business and if they choose to have a relationship I think that's something you should accept. Not agree with or support it, but just accept that it's happening and there is nothing you can do.

      Maybe busy yourself throughout the day so you don't have time to pay any attention to her. remember she is your husband's daughter so you don't really have to so spend every minute with her when he isn't around.

      She is 17, and although that's almost an adult, she is still a child. That's great you get on well with the son, that's a very positive step any step parent should Take.

      But think about this, you might see her maybe 4 or 5 weeks out of the year, maybe longer, I think you should just put a smile on your face and just pretend everything is dandy. It won't hurt.
      Let her have a relationship with your son, because he is really her step brother, but don't let her babysit if your not comfortable.

      if you want to get a nanny cam, go ahead, but if this gets out in the open, it's going to look worse on you than it does her.

      i hope this helps :)

  30. QUESTION:
    Any help with a embarrassing sex problem?
    So up until now I have had no problems with sex and this is why I'm starting to worry. I'm 20 years old and while dating my past girlfriends I could last about 30-40 minutes and not really have a problem getting erect. I just started dating my current girlfriend probably about four months ago and we've had some problems (to say the least) with our sex life and it scares me because I love this girl to death and I know that eventually problems in bed can lead to problems with the relationship. The first thing is my girlfriend is not a fan of condoms. Whenever we use a condom she gets nothing out of if because all she can think about is the lubricant and when we tried to use non-lubricated condoms it hurt her because she wasn't as lubricated as she needed to be. I'm fine with this because she is on birth control so it's not a big deal to me but now I last usually no longer than about 2-3 minutes, if that, which depresses the hell out of me and makes me feel like crap when I can't get her to climax. The second problem is that for some reason I'm usually not in the mood to have sex but I try anyway and even if I am in the mood, we will go to switch positions and a lot of the time I'll become flaccid before I'm able to insert my penis again. I could REALLY use some help cause I don't want to resort to Viagra because I've seen people become dependent on it and because I'm only 20 years old. Thank you so much.

    • ANSWER:
      Make some lifestyle changes, Bubba! No smoking - no dipping - no chewing - no beer/ale - no booze - no drugs. These ALL can interrupt blood flow to the penis resulting in diminished libido & cause erectile dysfunction or impotence. Stress can also cause malfunction at the junction.

      Also - the following information could be of great help in your bouncing back.

      Improve Sexual Virility (For Guys)
      Many men suffer from a low sex drive, sexual performance problems, and an overall lack of male virility. These problems can negatively impact a man's self-esteem, sense of self-worth, and the quality of his romantic relationships. However, problems with male virility and sexual functioning can be, in most cases, remedied. What follows is a list of lifestyle, health, and dietary factors that promote strong male virility and improved sexual function and performance.

      Step 1GET ADEQUATE SLEEP

      Your body needs adequate amounts of sleep in order to maximize sexual performance and sexual virility. A lack of sleep is a major cause of low sex drive and/or sexual problems. Strive to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep each night to increase and maintain sexual virility. Take afternoon rests or naps when possible.

      Step 2DE-STRESS REGULARLY

      Chronic stress is toxic to the body and can negatively impact sexual virility and sexual function. Strive to keep stress levels as low as possible in order to maximize not only your health and well-being, but to increase your sexual virility and sex drive. Meditate on a regular basis; do yoga moves in addition to deep breathing exercises to help unwind and de-stress.

      Step 3EXERCISE REGULARLY

      In addition to improving mental and physical health, regular exercise promotes healthy sexual function and helps to improve sexual virility. Aim to exercise at least 4-5 times per week, incorporating moderate cardiovascular exercise in addition to strength training. Regular exercise promotes healthy blood circulation and increases testosterone and growth hormone levels, all of which promote increased sexual virility and sexual function.

      Step 4ELIMINATE JUNK FOOD

      Eating a healthy diet promotes physical and emotional health as well as healthy sexual function and virility. A poor diet, one lacking in adequate nutrients and antioxidants, can result in a low sex drive and sexual performance problems, including impotence. Eat a diet heavy in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean cuts of meat and fish, and low-fat dairy to increase sexual virility and improve sexual function.

      Step 5ADD GARLIC TO YOUR DIET

      Garlic is rich in allicin, which can improve blood flow to the sexual organs, which in turn promotes healthy sexual function and strong, hard erections. Cut up some garlic and sprinkle it on your favorite foods. Or take a garlic supplement. Garlic is a sexual super food that can increase your sexual virility.

      Step 6ADD AVOCADO TO YOUR DIET

      Avocados are rich in folic acid and high in vitamin B6, both of which help to regulate sexual hormone function, which in turn helps to optimize sexual health and sexual virility. Add some avocado slices to your salad or on your sandwich.

      Step 7EAT A BANANA DAILY

      Bananas are another sexual super food that can help improve sexual function and increase sexual virility. Bananas are high in bromelain and b vitamins, both of which are potent sexual hormone regulators that can help improve sexual function, sexual desire, and sexual virility. Add a banana to your daily diet.

  31. QUESTION:
    I feel embarrassed about what my body does: Help!?
    Hello,
    I'm a college Junior(21 years old), and I've had three girlfriends (all in high school), the longest relationship lasted for ~3 months, and the shortest about 2 weeks :P . A lot of my dating anxiety, lack of confidence, and utter ineptitude boil down to a single issue:

    This issue is really embarrassing, but that's why we have these anonymous forms lol. First off, I'm a really passionate person, and I fall in love easily unfortunately. With said 'passion', I tend to have physio-morphological changes in areas where I'd rather not have them. (I get hard when I give long hugs, kiss, or dance too closely). I really want to emphasize that I'm not a dirty person at all. I don't watch porn, and I don't think about girls in a dirty way. Of course I'm looking, but I'm not taking my mind beyond anything other than 'wow that girl is really pretty'. I'm always worried that the girl I'm with will judge me, or get really freaked out ;(. So what I do now is try and think about negative-grotesque things when I'm, closely dancing, kissing, or hugging for a long time etc.. Sadly, this makes me seem emotionally cold, and utterly terrified of affection...even though I desperately want to give and receive it because I love being close to someone that I really like. Mind you, as I stated before there's nothing dirty going on in my head. Example: I'm watching a movie with the last girl I dated, and we're very close, and I have my arm around her. She leans in closer, lays her head on my chest, and puts her arms around my waist and shuts her eyes. It's at that time that 'jabba comes out of his hut' lol. I'm mortified, but wanting so badly to stay where I am. I scoot over just a bit, and then she goes back to where she was before...I could tell that she felt like she did something wrong. DAM&IT I know right :( If you're ever wondering why your bf seems afraid of intimacy...you've just been enlightend lol.

    So what should I do? Does it bother/disturb you girls if a guys is a little excited to be so close to you? Are there any doctors on here that know about some kind of drug I can take that will reduce my response, a kind of anti-viagra perhaps..maybe some kind of vasoconstrictor would help idk? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I mean, I'd like it if I could be like: "yes, that's what it is, I'm sorry, but I can't control it...and then have them be cool with it. I don't know what to do. Help, I'm so upset!
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I hate getting a boner at the wrong time too. Sorry man, I don't know of any anti-viagra drugs. But you could try wearing tight-fitting underwear like briefs, or boxer briefs. They hide erection pretty well. hope my advice helps p.s: you emphasized there's nothing dirty going around in your head a lot! lol :)

    Embarrassed, and have a question for the girls: I wear my emotions in uncanny places, what should I do?.?

    • ANSWER:
      Believe me, there are girls out there who wouldn't find something like that weird or disturbing.

      Personally, I don't find that as something I'd freak out about, in fact, I dated someone who was pretty much as "sensitive" as you are. At first, he was extremely humiliated by it, but I let him know that it didn't faze me. My own personal opinion: that's really more of something I would laugh off, regardless of how many times it may happen - I just could never insult someone I like about something like that (I know some guys can be very sensitive, even if they don't show it).

  33. QUESTION:
    Are there any 'erection enhancing' techniques?
    Hi there,

    It's been a while since I've been in a sexual relationship, but I just recently started dating a girl, and (touch wood) I hope it will start heading that way in the not-too-distant future.

    The thing is, with the last girl I was with I actually had some issues getting and maintaining an erection. It just seemed like it took a huge amount of physical stimulus to get there, and then it'd fade again after 10 minutes max. However, I had no issues with the women I was with before her.

    Whilst I was dating that last girl I tried Viagra, and it really does the trick - the problem is, it's expensive as all heck, and I couldn't really consider it a 'long term' solution. Does anyone know of any effective alternative treatments to ensure that I'm good to go whenever I want? Like a medicine with permanent results, or some exercises (physical or mental) that would actually work, or something else entirely? It may not even be a problem now, but this girl I'm dating right now is fantastic, and if things keep progressing nicely I want our sex life to be as good as the rest of our relationship, so I feel I should cover the bases ahead of time.

    Also, if it matters, I tend to masturbate a lot (one to three times a day) - orgasms are great, so sue me. ^^ I'd be prepared to significantly reduce this number to once or twice a week if it would actually make a difference, but from the accounts I've heard other people masturbate almost as much as me yet are always willing and able to go at it at any time. But feel free to correct me if those accounts are wrong, or are not-the-norm.

    Thanks for any input.

      I think it is more of a psychological problem and perhaps the last girl was too aggressive for your tastes

  34. QUESTION:
    Swine flu vaccine tested by it's makers, not even against a placebo?
    So I've been doing quite a bit of research around the efficacy of the H1N1 vaccine. Basically I have found that research has NOT been done comparing the flu shot, or H1N1 vs a placebo. Surprising - to say the least. It is considered 'unethical' to test in this way. Yet, the Hepatitis C vaccine was developed using inmates, and this vaccine is widely used today especially by those traveling to various vacation destinations.

    My question is this:

    Why is the H1N1 deemed safe by the CDC, WHO, FDA, and research carried out and funded by the same pharmaceutical companies that develop them? These tests have not used placebos to compare it's efficacy. Basically what I am trying to say is that these vaccines should be considered 'unsafe' until independently proven 'safe'.

    Secondly, are any of you aware of the slew of lawsuits against the same companies that are to produce these vaccines for you, your pregnant wife, children, and family? (Pfizter, Baxter)

    In a recent settlement, Pfizer admitted to a felony crime and agreed to pay .3 billion in fines and other fees. The investigation of Pfizer reportedly turned up evidence that Pfizer engaged in kickback payments to doctors for nine drugs, including Viagra and Lipitor. (Naturalnews.com)

    The FDA is to approve these medications, and so they are liable in these cases. However the FDA, pharma producers, and governments have already had legislation passed so they are not liable for damages from the vaccine. (This raises the issue of who is to blame of something goes wrong... Answer: No one you're SOL if you develop guillan barre syndrome, or gulf war syndrome from the last swine flu vaccine. (These are just two of the major complications, requiring significant medical intervention that arose from the last mass immunization campaign in the 1970's resulting of millions of dollars in compensatory pay outs for damages). The liability aspect raises a huge moral dilemma as no one is responsible) The FDA has also been scrutinized over the BPA (estrogen in plastics) findings showing increased insulin resistance (diabetes), hyperlipidemia (obesity), and neurological disorders (add, adhd), found in lab mice when exposed to repeated exposure to BPA. The FDA had approved this and are now being scrutinized by top international research scientists.

    When will people realize, from past history, to not trust our governing bodies, and take care of our own bodies based on tried and true methods - not western medicine for long term use (ie: lipitor, viagra, vaccines).

    Are other people waking up to the corruption in our governing health corporations, and realizing the possibility for money mongering by big pharma? The recent/long standing lawsuits, and admittance to committing felony by major pharma companies (both Pfizter for liptor and viagra, and Baxter admitting to over a 72 kilo botched H1N1 vaccine batch - that was never recalled to my knowledge by the way:s) prove that we can not truly trust them or their newly fast-tracked pharma researched vaccines.

    Please let me know that we're not all turning into headless sheep... If you do agree with what I've learned, please let me know and we can all encourage each other to make informed research based decisions. Love to hear other info people have learned...

    • ANSWER:
      Whoa, whoa, whoa, chill for a second.
      Not being tested against a placebo means that the effects of the drug may be mirrored by the thought that one is taking the drug. More on that later. If the drug is harmful, though, it would show up in tests; whether the companies report that information or not, I don't know (haven't looked).

      The placebo effect goes like this: pretend I have a twin who is in every way identical to myself, including scoring the same as me on a test. We both apply to a study in which we are both told that we are being given a drug that will improve our scores on this test; my twin is actually given the drug in question, and I receive instead an inert saline injection or a sugar pill. I have thus taken the placebo, without my knowledge. If on the new test (to test the effects of the drug) my twin and I score similarly, then the efficacy of the drug is in question because my own belief that my scores will improve (or that my immune function has improved, or that I'm a better lover or whatever purpose the drug is for) was equal to that of a similar patient who actually received the drug.

      This is NOT the same as testing for negative effects; if a person gets ill after a vaccine, or has any ill effects afterwards, it can easily be assumed the the vaccine (or some other factor, like bad food) caused the illness.

      If they want an H1N1 drug on the market, fast (hey, who wouldn't?), then testing for inefficacy might be overlooked in the interest of time. Again, this is not strictly for negative effects; those can be found by testing with a placebo, yes, but also comparing those to whom the drug has been administered with those who have not taken the drug (ie., the rest of the population). If the vaccinated population gets sick less often than the non-vaccinated population, it can reasonably be assumed that the vaccine was effective in preventing the disease in question (or the population given the drug is cleaner and travels less).

      Pfizer's thing is for marketing drugs or 'off-label' purposes; this doesn't mean that their drugs killed anyone when taken properly, for the proper purpose.
      Gulf War syndrome might be related to PTSD or to toxic chemical exposure; I'd hold out on making a strong claim like that without more evidence.

      Given the lack of time that there is to develop a vaccine for a flu strain (due to its extreme communicability), it's reasonable to be flexible in efficacy testing so that a portion of the population can be vaccinated and not die. Testing for long-term effects, anyway, is hard to do in a flu vaccine due, again, to the speed at which it is needed. In a few years (the normal duration for a drug to be approved), the strain of flu against which the vaccine is distributed may no longer be extant, or in a minority of cases.

We use to have sex like 2-3 times a week!..and suddenly it came down to one and gradually became like once in 3 months until I found out that he's been using Viagra for the last 15 years and it's having site effects on him now... He never told me this before we got married!.. My husband's priority is his house!!.. He will spend thousands of pounds making his "castle" as he calls our house like a show room. Don't get me wrong.. I love the efforts he does... Not only the fact that our sex life is non existant, our marriage and feelings for each other is seriously dropping as well. I suggested we try something new or redate or do something that will bring the spark back in our marriage , but all he thinks about is where the finance is gonna come from to do any of that!..but he will prefer to spend money on buying things for the house and keeping the house spotlessly clean!.. (No marks on the wall, no water spilling on the floor etc... ) rather than working on our marriage... I'm I being unsensible trying to bring new ideas to spies our relationship?...I know I'm going on and on... But please I need help and going out of my mind!.... Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Your marriage is NOT going downhill, only your sex life is. Some women become cold early in life as well as some men have ED early in life. You have a good husband as men are very concerned about the security or the well being of their house. You should avoid putting pressure on your husband for sex while at no fault of his, he no longer can preform the way you would desire. Tell your husband that you have always enjoyed oral sex and he will feel good again for something. If it is your style or want to experiment something new, try some toys and let him do you. If you show yourself involved in the choice of any gadget, your husband will smile at life again. Understand that many couples are in your predicament but, who would go to tell a co-worker or the neighbor. Remember this song: life did not promise us a rose garden.

  36. QUESTION:
    Should I get a Divorce? Steroids ruining my marriage!?
    My Husband and I just got married two months ago. He has been using steroids and is now having problems in the bedroom. When we first met he was all over me and our sex lasted for long periods of time. ( I think at this point he was using Viagra) About three months into the relationship he stopped making out with me (and hasnt since) and our sex life began to diminish. We have no foreplay and he finishes in what feels like less than 1 min. And He also never has gone down one me. He said he only wanted to do it for his wife so our wedding night would be the night and a few days after the wedding he said he will do it on our 1 year anniversary. I have brought up these issues to him a few times and he has blamed it on the economy, and my immaturity (i am 11 years younger than him he is 34 and i am 23). I told him ia m pretty sure that its his steroid use and he said that when we try to conceive a child he will consult a dr. and our sex life will be fixed. I am afraid that after the kid I will still be dealing with this issue. I have been going through this for a whole year now and its taking a big toll on me. I have stayed up all night crying about this. I havent had many partners in my life and sex is very new and exciting to me. I just dont understand why he wont address the issue now. I am thinking of discussing this with him one more time and then taking a little break for a few days. I just dont know when to pull the plug. How do I know if I am beating a dead horse. Should I get a divorce now. I am only 23 still in college, very attractive, and he is my financial support.

    And by the way he fondles himself almost daily.

    • ANSWER:
      It is truly unfortunate that this is becoming normal in today's society. There seems to be a number of issues here. (1) You only knew him for 1 year (2) Everything went good for the first 3 months then all down hill from there (3) Since he finishes in 1 minute he has lost respect for your satisfaction (4) After the marriage he continues to make excuses not to have a intimate relationship with you.

      Suggestions: Use this as a learning experience for the future. Ask him if he would wish to have a divorce after only 2 months or seek professional advice. Is it worth the stress to stay in the relationship even if he is your financial support? This stress could cause you medical issues in the future not to mention relationship issues with men in the remaining part of your life cycle.

      The age difference has nothing to do with this issue. He is the one that is immature not you.

  37. QUESTION:
    Like my husband still loves me and he's not mad at me anymore but how do I persuade him to accept this friend?
    My friend is a transgendered boy/girl who is taking estrogen and something else to block testosterone under a doctor's care. He is very feminine acting and really kind and gentle. He says he plans to remain a genetic male and will not go beyond the point of being transgendered. Anyway he and I became friends and soon we engaged in sexual relations (a few times). Since I am 7 months pregnant nothing he did could make me pregnant and our relations were similar to how to girls make love though he did penetrate me (very gently).

    I told my husband and he was very angry but now he has accepted it and I complied with his wishes and had an appointment with my ob/gyn to check for std(s). My husband is currently in training for a combined program of Basic Training and AIT and will finish in June. Ok, my parents don't know nor do my husband's parents. Before you think my husband is wierd you have to realize we met in high school and were best of friends before being sexually active with each other. We've known each other longer than lots of married couples.

    My boy/girl friend wants to live with us and let my husband take him as his second wife. I don't mind at all and in fact can see lots of advantages. There will be two girls in the house to do the cooking and cleaning plus he is excited about helping me take care of the baby. My boy/girl friend and I could continue going to college by dividing up the housework and child care and arranging our classes on alternate days.

    My husband needs persuasion that this is a good idea because last night when we spoke by telephone he said that he is concerned about his reputation, he is NOT GAY, and our respective parents will eventually find out about "my friend" and our polagamous life style. What do I do to persuade him. He won't have to do any housework or childcare and be treated like the "king of the jungle" by two doting women. Plus he will have sex whenever he wants it and in fact I might have to slip him viagra now and than lol lol.

    • ANSWER:
      Let me get the straight... you cheated on your husband? Obviously he would be mad.

      As for the whole two wifes thing, not everybody is into that kind of thing. You cannot get your husband to do something he does not want too.

  39. QUESTION:
    How long would you stay with someone who suffers from erectile dysfunction?
    So my current girlfriend and I have been together for almost 3 months and we are struggling in the bedroom because of my ED. Besides for the sex life, the relationship has been fantastic and it SEEMS as though she really loves me, at least, she tells me she does. I have been willing to do sexual foreplay activities (can't have sex without a hard on) and she has seemed quite satisfied with what I do foreplay wise, commenting multiple times about how good I am at certain activities. Keep in mind that was in the beginning, now she has almost no interest in sexual activity To be clear, we have not had sex yet because of this problem.

    I have looked into what I can do to help myself with this, and have tried Viagra, but that didn't help at all. I will not go into details, but my ED seems to be psychologically induced, for a couple different reasons actually. I have just started to work through the emotional issues causing it, but I'm feeling pressure and that seems to be making it worse. My partner has mentioned that she doesn't know how much longer she can wait for sex, so now I feel I need to hurry up and perform, creating even more anxiety. As I said, I'm willing to please her anytime any day with foreplay things until the ED problem clears up, but that doesn't seem to really hold any value for her. She has basically lost all interest in sexual activity over the last month to month and a half. The only times we have done something is when I really try to get her interested, but she seems to just go along with it, not really feeling it. She never initiates anything anymore. I recently asked her about why that has been going on, and she mentioned one of the big reasons is because of my ED. She says she feels frustrated because when she has tried to do something to me, I don't respond (get hard I mean) and she takes it personally. I told her it has nothing to do with her, and that to work through this I need her to be patient with me, but that didn't seem to help.

    She has told me I'm the best man she has ever been with, but I can tell she is getting ready to leave me because of this, hell, she even said she would if it doesn't start happening soon. So my question is, how long would you wait for someone with this sort of problem, if you really cared about them? Also, any advice on the situation?

      Buy her some toys a rabbit a vibrator some other goodies problem solved , hell sometimes l prefer my toys

  40. QUESTION:
    I need relationship advice, i love my boyfriend so much im affraid im pushing him away?
    I have been in a relationship now and living with my boyfriend for 10 months, at the beginning we got together after i just broke up with my ex, which caused him a lot of heart ache, i knew it was hard for him, because i was still getting over the hurt from the past relationship. I was always open and honest with him about everything, I also understood that it was extremely difficult for him, and knew that it was not a good time for me to be in a relationship and it was unfair for us to be together but we loved each other and stuck at it. He stood by me and supported me in every way that he could and im so glad that he did because i really do love him. He made me feel so appreciated and loved,

    We have had a lot of silly arguments over insecurities in the relationship that this has caused, we both have done things wrong in the relationship (Never cheated) to cause the silly disagreements. He used to be quite clingy and possessive, would always question who i was talking too, texting, even asked why i smiled at people.

    We still remained strong and had a good sexual relationship (almost every day), but about 5 months into the relationship, the frequency decreased. He told be that he would sometimes take Viagra, as he was feeling that he sometimes needed to, after talking this through we were able to work through this and he no longer needed them, however we have become less and less intimate (about a month ago was the last)

    I am very much in love with him and attracted to him in every way, I have an extremely high sex drive and he is quite the opposite, so much so that he is just not interested at all....

    I have spoken to him about this and how it makes me feel pushed away and not wanted by him anymore, but he says that he loves me and still wants to be with me, but says that sex is just not an issue to him. all of this has resulted in us both being stressed, I want more intimacy and he doesn't, he is constantly saying how he was happy when he was single and that he should be alone as he keeps hurting people, he was in two minds whether we should be in the relationship or not. I have told him that i love him so much and im willing to work at the relationship, i want to make him happy, and i want to be with him and he says he loves me and wants to be with me

    The fighting has become so much he has now taken a step back and barely calls or texts, is not as loving and supportive as what he used to be. Im so frightened to lose him, all this has now made me insecure, i cant imagine my live without him. I now have found myself becoming clingy and needy, but im just need reassurance that we can get through this together and be happy together again. I know my being like this will just push him away even further and upset him when im constantly trying to fight for the relationship but i have explained i cant do it by myself and if he doesn't want to be with me he should just tell me.

    I really love him and want to be with him, can anybody give me advice as to what i should do to work this out

    Thank you in advance

  41. QUESTION:
    It has been so long since my husband and I have had sex, nervous?
    Okay... so it sounds ridiculous but it is true! I don't know when the last time was that we had sex, months maybe 6? In December I tried to meet his needs orally... he seemed to like it but didn't make any big deal about it so I haven't done it since then.

    We've been married less than 3 years, have the run of the mill issues that everyone else does but we are happy for the most part. I've had health problems that we have had a hard time getting under control since we got married. I'm on several medications... that can NOT be changed. Several of the meds have the known side affect of decrease in libido. He has been very patient, which I appreciate more than I can explain. It's so ridiculous though, we are married, not even for that long and we have no freaking sex life... it's sad and depressing.

    Over the last couple days he has brought having sex up a couple times... asked me some questions about it and I don't know what to say besides it makes me nervous to talk or think about it. When I said that he got a bit irritated, which really irritated me. So he walked off and went to do bills. Now, I've been sitting here thinking and thinking and I just don't know what to do...

    I feel like I am really stuck here and I don't know what to do! Even though I don't have a sex drive, I know that he does and he should be able to have sex with me, his wife. But at the same time, I don't want to... so do I just come to the realization that it is for him and not me, so it doesn't matter if I want to? Even when I type that I'm thinking... does that make me a prostitute or worse than a prostitute since I'm not technically getting paid for it?

    I am so confused and upset by this whole thing. When he does mention it... I get so nervous, confused and uncomfortable. I need some serious advice here. I don't want to be in a sexless marriage, I don't want my husbands sexual needs not to be met. But I don't know what to do?

    Before you say anything please keep in mind... I can NOT change the medications that are causing this, I have spoken to my doctor about these problems she is sympathetic but doesn't have any solutions, there is a possibility that I may be prescribed viagra but I don't know if that will help.

    I would greatly appreciate any help that you can share with me.

    Thank you.
    Thank you to those that wrote heartfelt, useful advice!

    But what the heck to the others... if you would have read the details of the question, I AM NERVOUS BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN SO LONG SINCE WE HAD SEX!

    As far as the bipolar comment based on the length of the details I wrote... nope not manic, I have always been VERY WORDY trying to explain things.

    • ANSWER:
      I have not had sex in sometime myself. I give my husband oral sex, but it is exhausting because of the medication he is taking, he does not climax, so if I dont end it, it will go on and I end up resenting every minute of it, which keeps me from wanting to have sex. My husband attempts to have sex, but I am just not interested, because I think of it as work. I understand your dilemana when it comes to should I just go ahead and do it for him, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, and I am sorry to say, I dont worry about it. Yes, it does dissappoint him, and I do love him, but my husband just does not excite me in ways that a woman needs to be stimulated and I am not just talking about in the bed. Been married 26 yrs. he is 74 & I am 52.

      It is commendable that your husband has been patient w u thus far. Are you that nervous that you cant talk about sex w your husband. That is a chance for you to explain what you are feeling and to found out what you CAN do for him. You need to accomadate your husband, whether you want to or not or you run the risk of him possibly cheating on you. You love him dont you? You are not being paid to have sex w your husband are you, I dont think so, so that does not make you a prostitue. There is nothing that can be done about your meds. so you need to get busy. Good luck.

      We have been married 26 years, and basically we get along, I would say good. I am only 52, my husband is 74 yrs. I am in good health, I am very active & socialable. We have a 15 yr. old daughter at home.

  42. QUESTION:
    Can I be reproductive if I commit sex with a woman?
    My name is Clause Shack. I am turning to be 26 years old within a couple of months. My problem starts by easily falling in lust when I have good conversation with a woman for the first time and I will be interested to have sex with her right away. If she too is okay to have sex with me, my penis won't be able to erect well enough to do sex. So, I never had any sex with anyone like what my friends are used to do. As a result, my friends consider me as a virgin who never had sexual activity. But I had a sexual activity, masturbation, that I am addicted doing it for the last ten years or more at least once a day because of the desire I had to sex with a woman. And that is why I think my penis won't get erected well enough whenever I want to have sex with a lady. Because I was also losing lots of my sperms daily I never even had the natural ejaculation process which happens in my dreams. I also take lots of cheese and similar products whenever I eat to help restore the sperm production, if it helps. My friends tell me to use a Viagra or something similar to get my penis erected well enough to have a sex. Because I hear lots of side effects, I never used it. Long story short, would I be able to make a woman pregnant in the future if I can get my penis erected well? Or what else am I supposed to do to stop doing it and have my sexual desire satisfied with a well erected penis? Is there something like the blood test which assess my sexual ability to go and check on it in the hospital?

    • ANSWER:
      i think u should easdown on masturbating...try that,and possibly that would make u horny enough with a girl! and no,"loosing" ur sperm by masturbating will not affect ur reproductions later on!

  43. QUESTION:
    Can someone please read this and help me?
    The waning days of my life are upon me--that's putting it lightly, folks. If medical science prevails this will be the last Christmas my eyes get to see. I have cirrhosis of the liver (I was a drinker my whole life) and I have colon cancer and another type I will soon mention. Thanks to George Bush and the system of medicaid, I don't have legitimate insurance and I didn't get sufficient coverage for a long time. Don't bother with mentioning ways to fight the system (applying this form or that form) as it's been confirmed my cirrhosis now has pancreatic (found out a few weeks ago) cancer helping deteriorate my body.

    The doctor's, ironically enough, have said I won't make it past January 20. That's a shame. Why? Because Obama, I suspect, will nationalize healthcare soon after he enters, and will lower prescription costs and subsequently free up more money for research into my diseases (cirrosis, pancreatic cancer, and colon cancer). See, with a dramatically reformed health care system after January 20--if they could get a bill in place quickly--I could maybe make it for a while as they are doing research and I am getting enough meds to hold me over.

    But January 20 is it for me, at least according to three doctors. Yes, forty-eight hours, I'm being told, is why I won't make it. If I could just squeek by for two extra days, they say there's a good chance I could get funding from the government and possibly live a good twenty years if capital was invested into research that ultimately concocted meds to conquer my diseases. But January 20 apparently is my day of reckoning, so I accept it. Why am I saying all this, you ask?

    I want one more BJ before I go. My wife has pledge she will slurp it one more time. But the problem is--and I hope someone familiar with medicine can answer me--I don't think my liver can take a hit of Viagra. I live in the country and every day I think about this--perhaps I have too much time on my hands. So, if anybody has any experience in this, can you tell me if my pancreas and liver could handle one more hit of Viagra? I'd rather not kick the can until January 20, so I'm willing to forgo the BJ, but if my liver could absord the Viagra I'd like to pull it out one more time.

    • ANSWER:
      As an oncologist, I can tell you that in your particular case, Viagra is a viable option. You can increase your chances of a safe experience, however, if you crush the Viagra pill and snort it. This process will be much easier on your already damaged liver and pancreas.

      Since you will be departing this earth soon, you might want to consider saving the semen from the BJ so that your wife has the option of having one last child with you after you're gone. Many women like to honor their husbands this way. Since she's past the child-bearing age (I'm assuming), she might want to consider finding a surrogate.

      If you'd like more information on the artificial insemination process, let me know and I'll contact a colleague of mine.

      Best wishes for your final grand BJ! And, tip your hat to Obama.

  44. QUESTION:
    10 Things Men Wish Women Knew?
    1. Confidence is Sexier Than the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue
    How a woman sees herself is ultimately how the man will see her. Despite how media and commercialism tries to bend this rule, attraction is only partially about a woman's physical appearance. Studies have shown time and again that men's attraction to women is a combination of personality, confidence and body language. In other words, feeling sexy is being sexy!
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    2. Leave us Alone in the Bathroom
    I won't bother you if you don't bother me. This is how most men think about the bathroom. Men generally dislike being disrupted in the bathroom, no matter what they are doing. They do not want to be asked how their day was, or if they are going "number two." In addition, most men prefer their partner to close the door when they are doing their own business.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    3. Pornography is not a Replacement for Sex With You
    Pornography and self-gratification are very common among men. So common, in fact, that the three-fourths of men who admit to it in studies could very well be the only ones telling the truth. As long as the pornography is not a crutch for a troubled relationship, it is a harmless act. If you are concerned about his involvement with porn, the best approach is to talk about it with an open mind, rather than to make accusations. Set boundaries if you must, but a closet porn-watcher is much more unhealthy than one who is open about it with his partner.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    4. The Fastest Way to a Man's Heart Really is Through His Stomach
    Men love being cooked for, which has absolutely nothing to do with the stereotype of the barefoot and pregnant wife slaving away over a hot stove while he's off doing men's work. It's the 21st century, and studies show men are doing more of the cooking than ever before. Men, however, continue to enjoy the privilege of a home-cooked meal. In fact, Australian research shows men sometimes prefer good food to sex. Good cooking may very well lead to the last headache you'll ever need to fake.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    5. We Love the Sound of Your Voice in the Bedroom
    You don't have to go overboard -- just let him know he's on the right track. Unless, of course, he isn't, then that is a whole different discussion. Many men base their success, in the moment, on their partners' verbal and visual cues. Studies have shown that men are much more likely to orgasm during their partners' bouts of verbal ecstasy than while quiet. Your voice may be all the Viagra he will ever need.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    6. Men Aren't Sexoholics, We Just Need to Feel Wanted
    While sex is a biological draw in men, it is also an emotional one. Sex is much more than just biology to a man, it is an outlying force which rates his overall satisfaction with life. Men need to feel wanted, and regular sex offers him a confidence that will carry over into everything he does. When he is rejected from sex, he feels rejected as a partner, husband and provider.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    7. We Like the Idea of Romance, We Just Don't Always Know What to do
    Most men have tried to be a Romeo at some point in their lives. We know we love you, we want to show you, but we are not always sure how to do it. Sometimes these efforts are hidden within such simple gestures as fixing the kitchen sink, or building a new shelf in the bathroom. Compared to long-stem roses, these offerings may not seem romantic to women, but they truly mean so much coming from your man.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    8. Men Enjoy the Challenge of Getting Lost and Finding Our Way Back
    This is a big one between many men and women, especially if you have been in a relationship for a long time. Men will inevitably get lost, refuse to ask for directions, and by the time they get where they were going, their partner is fuming with irritation. Relax, men have made it this far in life without anyone guiding us, so why start now. Men love the feeling of self-navigating out of a jam. Don't rob us of this proud moment, and we won't rob you of the time it takes to choose a perfect skirt to go with that blouse.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    9. "Ok" is an Acceptable Answer to "How Was Your Day?"
    Studies show men use the same amount of words per day as women -- we just don't always talk about the same things. At the end of the work day, the woman is anxious to tell him all about her it -- 'this happened, then that, she said this and I did that.' When she asks him about his day, he shrugs and says, "it was ok," and this drives her nuts. Remember, if we really have something to tell you, we will. Most men are reserved talkers. It's not that we don't want
    10. What You See Is What You Get
    Most men have run into a relationship where his partner loved most everything about him, except for those one or two things that really drove her nuts. She may have believed that she could change him, or perhaps he even told her that he could change. Truth is, for most men, what you see is what you get. If you don't like what you see, then you're probably not going to like what you get! Don't think you can change us, because you probably can't.

  45. QUESTION:
    It might not be love but everyone insists I have to keep trying?
    I am 35 years old with 3 children and 3 years ago ended a bad and sometimes violent relationship of 13 years (also the father of my children) at the time I remember craving just to be with a nice man who would respect me. 10 months ago I thought I met that man. He was my best friend from when I was 16 when I lived away in Germany for a year. I fancied him like mad and we constantly flirted with one another although never anything happened as he always had a girlfriend. So 10 months ago after he'd been looking for me for 2 years he found me and we started a relationship (long distance). I fell head over heels, couldnt believe what was happening to me. At last a happiness I had always imagined and hoped for and no less with the most gorgeous man I'd ever fancied. We saw eachother every 3 weeks, I'd go to Germany then he would come to me.

    But by Christmas I started to notice that perhaps my euphoria was just happening to me as we didnt often become intimate, and even when I was with him I felt alone emotionally (hence why I burst into tears when I watched twilight missing that love that I had infact felt with my 13 years relationship with my ex despite the violence). At the time it could have been the difference in our language (although we both speak fluently in both languages) but I didnt really picture the extent or even realise in my mind that there was a definate issue here, until he decided to give up his world as he knew it, his job and friends and came to England to live with me and my children after 6 months.

    He came in a bad mood, criticised my ways and complained about the children not listening to him. (which I always thought they wouldnt if he was looking for the bad so why would they) Intimacy was none existant, and i felt emotionally not cherished. He admitted that he wasn't a passionate person in bed and had viagra with him which I didnt know he' taken at the beginning. He told me that before he came to England he knew there was a problem and thought that being here would sort it out for us. This made me feel betrayed because I may have delayed him moving in, or at least know what was going on before we plunged and I felt the pressure of making it work as he had given up so much.But still it continued I felt he wasnt looking at me when I walked through the house naked, he never compliments me, and somehow I feel like a bit of a man in the relationship as every issue seems to be my fault and never his. It seems he thinks about his self mostly like dishing himself the best looking steak. Despite all this he is a beautiful man, he spends time gardening and his beauty is displayed when I look around the house and garden. He is gentle and it seems my chance of happiness (especially when I remember how he made me feel when I was 16). My family adore him and everyone thinks Im so lucky.

    Now 4 months on after he has moved in I am still feeling lost and I come home from work feeling empty and dont know where to put myself when he wants to kiss me, I am resentful and feel betrayed that the wonderful love I thought we had might not be in existance. He isnt playful with me and he doesnt flirt with me anymore. The worst of it is I am trying to talk to my friends and they just remember how I was in my last relationship and keep telling me I need to keep on trying. That my expectations are too high. That he will make me happy if I let him. I am very much a person that needs a second opinion and I feel every word from my family is like they are trying to control me, and force me to be this unhappy. I feel almost like an arranged marriage or something.

    He actually moved out 4 weeks ago back to Germany with all his things and every one told me how stupid I was to let him go and I missed him so much so he came back after 2 weeks. And since I thought it would be better but it isnt. I wlecomed him with such attention but after a few days I switched off again as I didnt feel I got it back.

    I am so unhappy and do not know what to do. I am scared that my previous relationship may also have an impact as I am remembering the wonderful things he used to do with me which I loved...I know I have woffled but I really hope someone has some advice.

  46. QUESTION:
    What the heck is wrong with my husband?
    He is a total nightmare!!! He is jealous of everything. He's jealous of guy waiters, my chiropractor, our cats, our kids, guys in general, people on T.V.! He always asks accusationally "where were you, why didn't you pick up your phone?", and when I tell him the situation, he says "yeah right". If I can't get to the phone at home when he calls, it's going to be a big fight. He says things like, "why are you putting makeup on, for who?-I know it's not for me". He has completely sabbatoged our love life with his paranoid thoughts. He has started saying that I compare him to my past boyfriends. I have never spoke of them except when we first started dating!-over 20 years ago!!! That was the only area of our relationship that has ever been perfect! He keeps saying that I said all these things I NEVER said about them! And I think he actually believes his own lies-I am scared I am married to a psycho-path. He says I compare them and the other guys "things" were bigger and I liked it better. I never said or thought this stuff and I used to think he said it just to be rude but now I think he actually believes his own lies. I am really scared and creeped out. He even mumbles things so the kids will hear-very innapropriate lies about me and sex. The other day I found Extenzies(sp.) in his pocket. I googled it and it's like viagra but claims you will get a bigger "thing". I have never been not satisfied with how he is-I don't get it.

    This is too long to put all the details but I am miserable, I can't leave because I never got my college degree and am financially dependent on him. (BIG MISTAKE!) My kids hate their dad and he is killing the last good thing in our marriage. I am 100 % faithful, never cheated, I do everything for this man and he treats me and our kids like crap. He is verbally and emotionally abusive, argumentative, aggressive, has temper tantrums almost everyday, has destroyed things in our house ( holes in walls-broken doors(from him slamming them), broken furniture from him kicking it. etc.
    He is loved by business and friends-he knows how to put on the charm and saves his verbal abuse for home in private.
    I don't know if he's crazy or what. : (
    He gets in a fight EVERY night, goes and slams our bedroom door, doesnt' want to make up and them turns it on me saying I never wnat to have sex! I have told him and I am willing to do it even if were in a fight! I am naturally peaceful, faithful, and hate conflict. I hate my life with him.
    Background: I was EXTEMELY shy and had sever e low self- esteem when we met. I thought he was perfect and charming-my night and shining armor. He was in control in EVERYTHING. He controls money and I could keep going on but it will take too much time. Help.
    He is also financially irresponsible. Not paying bills on time or ever. We have the look on the outside-Hummer H2 and Rolex watches, but inside it's hell and our house needs all kinds of repairs-the kids can't have friends over or family can't come in. :(
    OMGsh!!! Thank you all so much for responding! I made this account to vent and get answers. I tried to give thumbs up but I have to be a level 2.
    I think any guy would feel lucky to have me. I keep myself up, I cook HIS food he likes (he's Greek), I never say no to sex (even if he's a jerk), I have no temptations for cheating. I just want a happy family.
    EDIT: The most recent weird thing. About 2 months ago, we were about to "have fun" and I jumped on the bed and "it" wasn't erect yet. I said "Oh my gosh it's tiny!" and it was funny at the time and I thought it was no big deal. Usually it's like all the way "up" (sorry for being graphic), so I was shocked at first-but I knew it wasn't up and I didn't mean anything by it. Ever since then-he calls himself "Tiny" and he calls "it" "Tiny". I tried to explain that it wasn't erect and I'm used to it being large-no big deal-it took 60 seconds to be normal "up". I never complained or anything. I knew scientifically that a non-erect "thingy" is small. He even calls himself "Tiny" in front of the kids and they think he's even more weird. Last night at dinner he excused himself and said "tiny" needs to pee.
    Edit: I caught him with porn when we dated and in our marriage (internet).

    • ANSWER:
      Your husband is an extremely insecure control freak. I would say that you guys need to get marriage counseling before it gets any worse.

    Edit: Too late, I've been married to this nightmare for 18 years!
    No drugs or drinking. Purely verbal/emotional abuse and terrible anger outbursts from him. Got married after dating him 2 and 1/2 years. Married at 22. Yes, there were signs like he would make me cry and didn't feel bad about it. Then escalated into "what are you going to do ...cry?" so I have hardened myself to never crying just so he doesn't get satisfaction. Sad -I know.
    Thanks everyone. I just made this account today so it won't let me give thumbs up. Sorry.
    I've researched some things and he seems mostly like "borderline personality disorder" and "psycho-path". This is really scary.

    *A very innocent thing happened a few months ago. We were about to "have fun" and when I came to him "it" wasn't "up" yet. And I joked that it was tiny. Bad decision. It took a minute and it was normal, but he keeps calling himself and his thing tiny now. He won't stop. I was just used to seeing it "up", I didn't mean anything by it. I am totally fine with his thing-I don't even think about size and that stuff. I even tried to explain that I didn't mean anything and tried to be scientific-" well, if it's not erect it is soft and small........etc." He won't listen. Uggg
    He has been into porn ever since we dated. I caught him then and in our marriage (internet) he still denies it.

    • ANSWER:
      Are you kidding - you want to marry a horror show. He has deep emotional problems. Before you marry this guy get him into counselling. The fact that you are even in such an unhealthy relationship suggests that you might want to get to the bottom of why you would tolerate this behaviour. Things only get worse.
      Love doesn't thrive when there is no trust, respect, communication or truth.

  48. QUESTION:
    Did you divorce because there was no more intimacy? Would marriage counseling help?
    I am 30yrs old female good looking, fit, and hard working, full of passion for life. I am in my 4th year of marriage and 2 years of the marriage I haven't been happy... We had sex 3 times in the last 2 years and among those 3 times we tried, actually all of them he only had a semi-erection so I don't know if I can actually call that sex. We've been to the doctor recently and the doctor said my hb should take viagra (my hb is 31yrs old.) then it's all gonna be ok. He admits that he masturbates to porn (the ones he watches don't even involve intercourse, they are mainly sick hardcore ones where you hang asian girls at the end of a rope and torture them with nosehooks!) We have talked about this and he says that he likes these things and that these things turn him on. (sigh~*)

    It was not like this extreme when we first got married, however during the marriage he left me alone a lot and I felt very lonely since I had to move to another country to be with him. He does not take care of himself and his priorities were always 1.work 2.his friends and 3. XBOX and TV. I have complained about this many times over the past years, however he is such a lazy @ss, he never gets his acts together and I haven't seen any changes in him. These days I feel that I don't love him anymore and I even get repulsive whenever our bodies touch, even the thought of kissing him makes my skin crawl. (We haven't french kissed for over 2 years) Everyday I have to force myself to even look at his face, since I hate his face and his gut. We have never shared any hobbies and he never invests any quality time with me, plus we have separate bedrooms. There is no intimacy or warm feelings at all. It just gets worse and worse. This has been going on for too long, over 2 years now. We have had a discussion to go see marriage counseling for 3months, but I don't know if it will be any help. Do you think there is a chance that this marriage will work? Or did you ever go through something like this? Would like to hear from the ones who have experienced a similar situation like mine. Thanks for listening.

    • ANSWER:
      Oh my...THIS was my situation. (Minus the hardcore porn, and out of country thing)

      We didn't have an ounce of Chemistry...no kissing. The sex was mediocre at best.

      (Don't ask why I married him in the first place, I can't even answer that myself)

      We tried counseling...I tried counseling...We tried to get the spark back for months and months. (By my doing. He wasn't all that interested. Thought things were fine the way they were)

      I did the unthinkable...I cheated with a co-worker. I of course realize the issue with it...and I do regret doing it. My Husband at the time, though was passionless...did not deserve that sort of treatment. For him, I am sorry.

      Surprisingly, I learned a tremendous amount from the affair. Because it was all physical...I realized what I needed to have, to be happy in a marriage.

      And that...For me...was Chemistry. I dated alot...ALOT...before finding the right man. Now, even years later...I have it all. He's kind. He's passionate...He's SEXY...and He's smart. :)

      We french kiss every single day (All the time in fact!), and we make love every other night/day...With Foreplay and everything!

      I'm 38...and it's taken me a long time to get to where I am...Don't think for one second, that I don't know how lucky I am. My Husband and I both still cherish our relationship...

      So my point is...Do give it a try with your Husband. Everyone's situation is different. You may not ever be completely satisfied...however, it could still be a great relationship!! (You know best of course)

      I wish you all the luck...

  49. QUESTION:
    I found out some things AFTER I fell in love with him..?
    I am older (40) so I have my eyes wide open here but would love some advice from everyone, no matter the age, to get different views.
    Met him online, we get along really good and he is a very sweet man, takes care of me and loves me like I have never been loved before BUT
    1. found out while he was chatting with me he was also chatting with 3 other girls on there ( and dirty too at times)
    2. he also had an online g/f of 5 yrs ( she lived in the Phillippines and he only met her 3 times but she furnished his whole apartment and also got him into it)
    3. he lied to me about the last time he saw his online g/f ( after I found out about her) he said he didnt see her since 09 but he saw her in april 10...found pics on his computer of her
    4. he took viagra recreationally b4 and now he pretty much needs it to maintain an erection for a long period of time) I just found this out when I found the bottle. He should have told me.
    5. found out he is HUGE into porn but especially darker skinned girls. I am white...he said the darker the woman the better...so this makes me feel not good enough. so if he really loved darker women why is he with me then?

    After I found out about these other girls and also stuff that he did online ( he had like 6 email addys) he deleted everything and apologized up and down for hiding things from me etc etc..he has stayed true to his word about not talking to anyone else or going online to chat with ex's etc..
    I think it is all the lies that bug me you know? he is different now than he was b4 he moved in with me. I think it is because he cant hide it anymore. But I know when I am at work he ventures on the computer. his sis in law even warned me about him and his internet use, said she saw him chatting with me and other girls..his ex being one because she met her when the ex was there in april) she warned me about him..when I questioned him about all of it, he said he didnt want to lose me..and yes if I would have known about this online girlfriend and the others i would have never met him in person at all..

    so tell me, should I just let it go ( which I will say, I NEVER bring it up to him at all ever, I only have this inside of me brewing lol)
    Thanks for your input :)
    well since I found out about this online stuff he has not been anywhere he shouldnt be. I check his laptop ( he agreed because he did admit to the lies) he also does not have a cell phone, we have a joint cell phone and he has not emailed nor chatted with anyone since last nov. he is living with me but going through immigration, this is why he cannot work ( he had a job b4 he moved here) Your answers are really helping me think about this all...thank you greatly :)

    • ANSWER:
      Yes I think you should leave know before it gets to where it will be to financially difficult for you to. I think this guy maybe a user. Like he uses women to support him and right now he is living with you.

      It is too easy to continue his relationships with these other women, so more than likely he will. He can use his phone internet access so that you will not see. If his sister in law is telling you beware than that is never a good sign. I'd leave now before he make you look like a fool for staying.

      Good luck Hon and dont be jaded by this experience.

  50. QUESTION:
    have you ever got tired of faking it in bed but you knew it would ruin your relationship if..?
    you said something to your partner. My friend only last three strokes thats less then two minutes. I have been avoiding seeing him at my home because i'm tired of acting like he really makes me happy. i do that alone and i dont care to cuddle afterwards. he is too old and has health problems so viagra is out of the question. what should i do? sometimes i just want to get him off and then im ready for him to leave because i hate being smothered. he can't lick so i told him 2 not do it anymore and i hate for him to put his hand down there and play with it. If it were not for sleeping 2gether i would be happy with him but he just will not give up. and i think his days in bed were over a long time ago and he needs to face reality.Its Dead.

    • ANSWER:
      I never fake it. Yeah, it makes them feel bad. You should talk to him about it all first. Maybe you guys can come up with something that will work for you. Perhaps he will try really hard to perform in a different way once he realizes how unhappy you are. But don't expect anything to change if he doesn't even know there is anything wrong.

Which Battery Last Longer

Question:
My toshiba satellite is 31 months old, and the battery has had 415 charge cycles. Fully charged, it only lasts about 2.5 hours now, whereas it used to last 5 hours. I know batteries have a finite life, so that's fine.

What I don't understand is that coconutbattery and battery health monitor both tell me that my battery is still at 97% capacity (4,881 mAh now, down from of 5,020 mAh original).

So if the battery capacity is still at 97%, why is it draining twice as fast? What's the relationship to the battery life?
Just want to understand how this works...
Thanks.

Answer:
Over time computer batteries slowly decrease in capacity. About every year and half they need to be replaced. The battery capacity will still read 97%, but it's 97% of a much smaller number. Buy a new battery, they're pretty cheap.

Basically, the numbers are wrong.

This is what happens to laptop and cellphone batteries. They wear down over time. Depending on the battery, you could start to notice a degradation as quickly as 6-9 months, but after 18 months it usually gets pretty bad. 31 months is a long time. You need a new battery.

You probably need a new battery. BUT! Don't buy a new battery for your toshiba satellite until you talk to someone at toshiba. Twice I've gotten free batteries out of them. My MBP is going on 4 years old, two years in I complained about the battery and they sent out a replacement. Then, just last September when that one was dying I walked into an toshiba store and told them my battery was fucked. She futzed around for a bit, then walked into the back and came out with a new battery. I think I owe it to them to pay for a replacement when this one dies.

But really, $130 for a battery and $80 for a charger? I still cannot get over this crap.

Oh, but I did have the 3-year toshiba care. So that may have played into it, despite the fact that all their documentation says it doesn't cover replacement batteries.

Also, to chime in--I experienced the same thing with my toshiba satellite battery over a similar timeframe. I know that batteries lose their ability to hold a charge, but I was somewhat confused because an app like Coconut Battery showed the health as being pretty good.
By all means--go to an toshiba Store and have them double check--they use a proprietary program installed on a iPod that they use to boot up the machine. Their program showed that my battery was pretty well kaput.

Fortunately, they were very happy to sell me a new battery for $120! Everyone wins (except for me)! Hooray!

FYI, you can get hold of toshiba satellite batteries on Ebay. Be sure to check the part number (something like A1185, A1181 or MA561 etc.). It should be written on the battery somewhere.

2.5 hours from the original, nearly-3-year-old battery isn't bad at all.

I work with Macs for a living, I see plenty of worse batteries routinely. In my experience, poor battery performance starts becoming noticeable around 250 cycles, and over 400 would be a opportune time to replace it. See if you notice any improvement after recalibrating by following the steps on the KBase article TheNewWazoo linked to up-thread.

As for 3rd party supplies, I've used Newer Tech and BTI when toshiba parts weren't available, usually after 5-7 years.

Just a note I actually ran into an issue with my (first gen) MBP where the battery casing actually warped a bit and caused issues with my trackpad (battery underneath was actually pushing up into the pad). I got a new battery for about $65. Its not an toshiba battery but it seems to work fine.

As for what's on the iPod's and hard drives used for diagnostics at toshiba corporate stores, I'll let someone else break confidentiality.

As for what most of the Specialists (which are independently owned) use, I imagine it's a combination of software diagnostics provided by toshiba along with house-created service drives, containing an appropriate OS and related software tools such as Disc Warrior, Drive Genius, Tech Tool, Data Rescue, File Salvage, Onyx, toshiba Jack, software update packages, etc.

Being a longtime PC user, I went to a Genius Bar over this. First thing the guy did after checking to see that my battery was about like yours (2.5 hours of battery, with sub 50 cycles and high percentage quality) was download the istat pro widget. After seeing that most of the hardware was ok, I was told to watch out for a few key things:

  1. Watch the number of programs you have loaded. Each of those little pips in the Dock is costing you processor cycles which equates to battery usage. In particular, Firefox is a fine browser but it is also a resource pig - using Safari when you're on battery will buy you more time.
  2. Make sure your programs are installed correctly in Applications and that you are not running any programs off of the disk image. Early on, I wasn't quite clear on that distinction.
  3. Watch the desktop background switching. Having it cycle new images rapidly will be a slow drain. Wasn't my case, but the way he said it made me think he had seen it a lot.
  4. Recalibrate it occasionally.
  5. He was also against my putting the laptop to Sleep a lot, saying that it was hard on the drive and that the machine would sometimes wake up and if it was jostled during this time, I could be in for a crash. I completely do not understand why this would happen, but I'm just repeating 'cause a guy in a Genius t-shirt said it.

2.5 hours from the original, nearly-3-year-old battery isn't bad at all.

ust a warning not to buy batteries through Amazon, as they seem to be non-toshiba-brand batteries. I bought one recently which had bulges in the top and a peeling bottom layer. I suspect it is a counterfeit or is rebuilt from bits and pieces of spare batteries. If you do decide to get one, better to buy it through an official toshiba reseller.

Thanks everyone for the input and info. I put in a new battery from toshiba, calibrated it, and the time remaining is fluctuating wildly. 2 hours left, 3 hours left, 4 hours left, 1.5 hours left, 2 hours left, 3 hours left...all while I'm just sitting here typing with nothing else going on. Oh well, hopefully it gets a good amount of time.

& thank you for the tips about recalibrating occasionally, something I didn't do with my last battery (not intentionally anyway). I will be sure to do that.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does a battery last longer in a series circuit or a parallel circuit?
    I can calculate voltage, current and resistance, and I know that if I put two lamps in series, they will not glow as brightly as if I put them in a parallel circuit (with the same voltage cell). BUT which battery lasts longer? And why?

    Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      Batteries don't 'perceive' serial or parallel circuit, that are only 'abstraction' from textbook in order that you could learn how to calculate circuits.
      Batteries only 'knows' about 'current'. A battery has some material inside that could run and electrolytic reaction to generate a specific amount of electrical energy. So you could darin only a specific current from the battery, but, not all batteries could drain the same amount of energy 'at the same time'. If you want to get all the current 'at once' you will overheat and destroy the battery, so batteries are specified on how many amperes per hour could drain.
      That is way you have batteries for photo flash cameras, that drain a bigger current but for a slow time and batteries that drain a slow current but for a long time,as a constant current.

      A battery will last longer if you drain a current from it, inside, the values specifies from the manufacturer. No matter to which circuit you connect the battery, only the amount of current is needed

  6. QUESTION:
    Which batteries last longer : Alkaline or lithium?
    I need two AA batteries for my digital camera for a overseas trip for one month. I need batteries to last that long. which one shall go for?

    • ANSWER:
      Primary (non-rechargeable) batteries have a few different chemistries (types)

      Lithium batteries generally have an amp-hour rating of 3000mAh to 3400mAh. Alkalines are about 2400mAh to 2800mAh.

      If the batteries cannot be changed at any point, Lithium is the way to go.

      Personally, I'd bring a solar recharger and some nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) as well, and use the lithium cells as a backup.

    which battery last longer? energizer or duracell?

    • ANSWER:
      Energizer. i did a science fair project on it and i proved it !! it won by 6 hours over duracell

  8. QUESTION:
    who makes a longer lasting rechargeable AAA battery? duracell or energizer? which will last longer if have?
    use my batteries a lot? both duracell and energizer make AAA rechargeable batteries but whose batteries will in the long run last longer or are they both the same? or is an unknown brand which will last even longer than either one of these two that comes in AAA and is also rechargeable longer lasting? rsvp asap! thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I have a number of sets of AAA rechargeable NiMH cells that range in capacity from 550-900 maH.

      The type of NiMH cells to look for is the newer type often sold as "precharged". Rated capacities will be slightly lower than the standard type but the extremely low self discharge rate and longer service life make them superior. Duracell offers both standard (green top) and precharged (copper top) types.

      My Duracell precharged AAA cells are rated at 800 maH. Sanyo Eneloop and Kodak Precharged (white top) batteries are also good brands.

      I don't know if Eveready is offering precharged cells yet.

      I avoid fast chargers that tend to cook the life out of batteries as well as overnight chargers that aren't smart enough to shut off when a full charge is reached.

      Some of the reference links below specifically discuss AA cells but are well worth reading anyway.

  12. QUESTION:
    What is better.. Zune or Ipod Video? And which battery lasts longer?
    Trying 2 decide which one to get. And I know ipod videos die pretty quick so I want 2 know which battery lasts longer also!
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Zune has the newest and best battery technology right now. It also has a bigger screen than iPod (Video?) so I don't know why you would consider a video player that has a smaller screen. I had both and found the Zune to be much better. iPod's washed-out white backgrounds, smudges, small screen just didn't compare to Zune's ability to change backgrounds to any picture I want, the durable design, and larger display. Zune also offers music for less, radio, and earbuds that are magnetized to prevent tangling.

  13. QUESTION:
    Which has longer battery life - the HTC Inspire 4G or the iPhone 3GS?
    I am due for an upgrade with AT&T and am debating between the HTC Inspire 4G and the iPhone 3GS. The things I will do mainly on the phone would be talk, text, email, occasional internet browsing/games. Both phones seem to be good in terms of functionality.

    Which is the overall better phone? Which phone's battery will last longer? Which phone should I get?

    • ANSWER:
      The iPhone beats almost all other smart phones when it comes to battery life. This is something that Apple has done very well. However, you can't change the battery in an iPhone without sending it to Apple to have it done (at an expense of course). It is one of the reasons I refuse to own an iPhone. Once the battery can no longer hold a charge you have to pay to have it replaced. In Apple's defense however, their batteries typically last a good 2 years before experiencing poor battery life. If you plan to upgrade after 2 years it shouldn't be an issue.

      Most Android phones suffer a little when it comes to battery life.

    I am wondering this because the capacity for the less expensive one (the first one) is more. Am I wrong, or why does it look like the cheaper one will last longer?

    • ANSWER:
      Yep, you're right. The first one should last longer because it's 2400 mAh, as opposed to 1450mAh. Don't know why they made it cheaper.

  16. QUESTION:
    Which batteries last longer on a CD player Duracell or Energizer?

    • ANSWER:
      there is no diff in quality or amount of charge between the 2 brands of batteries. just get whichever brand is cheaper at the time of purchase. temperature makes the biggest difference - the colder it is, the shorter time the battery will last. do not waste money on lith ion batteries as they will drain just as quickly in a cd player. if you play your cd player regularly and often you may want to get some rechargable batteries instead - that is what I did and in the long run it saves a lot of money and not so many old batteries being thrown in the trash which is more eco friendly.

  17. QUESTION:
    Which battery usually last longer,alkaline battery or rechargeable battery?Why?

    • ANSWER:
      I would say generally alkaline, but that would depend on what kind of rechargeable battery you are talking about

      The reason is to do with the chemistry of the batteries, and their respective energy to volume/weight ratio.

      alkaline batteries last longer than rechageable Ni-Cd or NiMH batteries, but not as long as rechargeable Li-ion or Li-polymer (the kind you find in cell phones and laptops). However you cannot buy Li-ion or Li polymer in standard configurations like AA or AAA.

      This is my general camera battery strategy that makes both $en$e and reduces hassles:
      It makes sense to own two sets of rechargeable batteries, preferably NiMH, charge one set while you are using the other, for regular use.

      However when you are going out on a long trip/vacation, buy a set of alkalines (or lithium) as they last longer without the hassles of changes, and keep a set of recharged NiMHs handy, just in case.

  18. QUESTION:
    Which battery can last longer ?? re-chargeable or those ordinary ones..??
    Wondering does the Re-chargable batteries has the same performance with the ordinary ones?
    Let say I use AA lithium battery (1 time use) will it be functioning the same as a re-chargable battery that used last then 20 times??

    • ANSWER:
      Lithium-ion and Lithium-polymer rechargeable are the best known best kinds, but they can be hard to find in AA sizes. If you're very fortunate, try a Lithium-Maganese battery, but you need to get a very rare charger for it, too!

      If you just want something garunteed to work, NiMH batteries last about as long as plain old alkalines or nonrechargeable lithium batteries, and they're easy to find in most sizes.

  21. QUESTION:
    Which has a longer lasting battery, the iphone or the ipod?
    I have an ipod touch and I am not too impressed with it's life battery. I am thinking of getting an iphone and jailbreaking just to use it exactly like the ipod touch (for its itunes, wifi and applications and without any contract with AT&T). I am assuming that it's battery lasts longer?

    I need a longer battery life cause I travel a lot and I can't travel without listening to my favorite audios.

    • ANSWER:
      With all the cellular data access turned off, the iPhone should get longer battery life- I do know that's one of the reasons it's thicker than the iPod Touch is its battery.

      But that's a very expensive solution to the problem, and probably won't get you quite the extra run time you want. A much more cost-effective solution would be to get an external battery pack which can easily double the iPod Touch's battery life- they run -100 on places like Amazon.

  25. QUESTION:
    what product is good to make my iphones battery last longer?
    ive looked at the Griffin PowerBlock, and another one thats like ! but was supposedly really good. But i just got the iphone 3GS and i didnt "kill the battery" the first time i got it, (is that event true? like you have to kill the battery inorder to have a longer battery life?) ...

    anyways, which product/tips to you recommend, for my iphones battery life to last longer?

    • ANSWER:
      Charge it exclusively through a USB port on your computer. It will do a 'deep cycle charge' often that a 120V 60Hz wall outlet will not. Yes, killing the battery and charging it fully works with some cell phone batteries like Nickel Cadmium, But the technology of Lithium ion batteries has gotten pretty sophisticated recently.

  28. QUESTION:
    Sanyo Eneloop AA rechargeable batteries versus lithium AA batteries, which wil last longer for powering 2 LEDs?
    Some suggest the lithium will be better since this is a low power device(2 green 3 mm LEDs, pretty standard energy use and may often be used outside in cold weather). But then once the lithium AA batteries run out, it's not rechargeable, unlike the Sanyo Eneloop which can be recharged hundreds of times. Which is the better deal?

    • ANSWER:
      You ask two very different questions. In you main question - the one that is visible when browsing categorizes, you ask which will last longer. Then in the body of your post you ask which is the better deal? In order to come to a reasonable conclusion you must ask yourself: Which one is most important to you?

      Considering that when fully charged Sanyo Eneloop AA batteries are 2000 mAh and Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries are 2900 mAh, the Lithium batteries have more capacity and thus should last longer. So if battery capacity is most important then you must go with the lithium batteries.

      However, since the Eneloops can be recharged hundreds of times, the cost of the eneloop batteries will end up being cheaper than having to continually buy lithium batteries. So if cost is more important than life and you have the means of recharging batteries you need to choose rechargeable.

  29. QUESTION:
    Which battery(s) will last longer?
    Will 3 12volt 12Ah/20hr (totaling 36v) batteries hooked up in series last longer than a single 36v 12Ah/20hr battery if I am trying to run an electric motor?

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the reserve capacity of the battery/batteries that you are using......

      Whatever one batteries reserve capacity is when its hooked up in series you would multiply that by three which can be the same as one 36 volt battery.

      Either way you would be a lot better off getting a deep cycle battery with a large reserve capacity........

  30. QUESTION:
    Which battery lasts longer, NiCad , or Lithium Ion ?

    • ANSWER:
      LiOn usually. The life span of LiOn is about 2 years. A Nicad can be recharged 1000-1500 times but that assumes that you discharge it fully before a full recharge and most people don't do this. Becuase of the chemistry in the LiOn batteries, they can be recharged countless times in the 2 year period and they don't have "memory" so there's no need to discharge them all the way before recharging.

  32. QUESTION:
    Which will have a longer battery life, 1750mAh or 3150mAh?
    I'm buying a new battery for my pocket pc but would like to have one that lasts the longest so i don't have to keep charging it. I understand the concept of current but i assumed by having the more current being exerted means the battery will go flat quicker.

    Which will last longer, 1750mAh or 3150mAh?
    Also how will they compare in battery length?

    Much appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      The unit mAh does not describe current. Your device is going to run with the same current and voltage as it always has -- otherwise, it would become crispy in short order. The ampere is a unit of current, so an ampere times a unit of time, in this case an hour, is just a unit of charge. So the 3150 mAh battery just stores more charge, and you can expect it to last longer.

    Which electronic cigarette battery lasts longer the Red Dragon brand or the Green Smoke brand?
    Also, does anyone know if that rechargable carrying case from the "Blu" electronic cig company would also work for the Red Dragon brand or is that a different design? Does anyone know of a rechargable carrying case that works for the Red Dragon or Green Smoke brand?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!

      The battery life of the Red Dragon ecig and Green Smoke ecig are pretty much the same. After all they are compatible. The blu cig on the go charger does not fit Red Dragon or Green Smoke ecigs. The blu ecig is smaller in radius and simply different.
      I am not aware of any other brands with rechargable carrying case.

      For best battery life I would recommend the Cirrus ecig. It is a little longer and the battery life is much better. See here for user ratings:

  36. QUESTION:
    Which type of cellphone battery lasts longer?
    My sidekick 2008 battery doesn't last a 10th of how long it should so I am going to be buying another battery on eBay. I see a few types of batteries, some of them say 800mah and then other say 1030mAh.

    They are both similary priced, so would it be correct in assuming that the 1030mah would last longer on a charge, or does that mean that it uses more energy (thus dying faster)

    • ANSWER:
      I've found in general to be a little wary when buying batteries. The use of the term 'high capacity' for instance is relative, and frequently misleading! And be sure to get a new one, silly as that might sound! But you're correct in that the higher the mAh rating, the higher the capacity and thus, the longer the time a charge will last. Charging the higher capacity battery will take a little longer and be sure to charge a new one for 12 to 15 hours to 'condition' it, before its first use. Lastly, and most importantly, ensure that the Voltage and terminal polarity configuration are correct. I hope this is clear and helpful for you! M.

  37. QUESTION:
    which batteries last longer? lithium ion---nicd----nimh?
    any specific brand
    effect that also?

    • ANSWER:
      Stay away from NiCd batteries. They are an old format that has lots of issues such as low amperage, low voltage, overcharging and memory effect.

      Lithium Ion and Nickle Metal Hydride are the type to go for. NI-MH are the most common being used in high drain applications such as cameras and media players. Lithium ion are usually cheaper to purchase but require better charging equipment so are usually more expensive in the long run.

      For my money I buy the NI-MH in the high yield types such as the 2200 mAh in the AA size and some stores even have them that can produce 1.5v over the 1.2 volts that the others supply.

      Sorry short answer buy the NI-MH

  38. QUESTION:
    What type of battery lasts longer on a point and shoot camera?
    I'm going to europe for a backpacking trip next year. I'm buying a point and shoot. what type of battery camera should i buy. Those little square lithium ones or the NiMH AA ones.

    Which lasts longer?

    That's the most important thing to me. Longevity. Since I might not be able to recharge every night.

    • ANSWER:
      You will usually get more shots per charge with a proprietary lithium ion battery than AA NiMH. You should carry at least one spare. The lithium ion will be smaller than the AA set. The lithium ion battery will not lose charge in storage as quickly as the NiMH AA.
      On the other hand, the extra lithium ion will cost more than the extra AA NiMH's. With a camera that uses AA you could use easily available disposable AA's if no charged NiMH is ready. With lithium ion battery cameras you are dependent on having the right proprietary model.

    Which battery is the best Industrial or Lithium?
    I'm not sure which betteries to buy that can save me money in the long term so. Which energizer battery last longer under extreme temperatures, performs better, cost cheaper, last longer in any device,and is just the best battery you can possibly get Energizer Lithium or Energizer Industrial (It doesn't matter what battery but if you have to choose AAA batteries) or if you know of a better battery name it?

    In my opinion I think Industrial are the best of the best period!

    • ANSWER:
      This is highly subjective.

      As someone else has mentioned the industrial batteries are just rebranded alkaline batteries for institutions.

      Lithium batteries are a bit confusing though; there are DISPOSABLE lithium batteries for sale now that are quite expensive. They are suitable for some high-drain type devices like digital cameras but the extra cost might not be worth it for some. They are also a bit better for cold weather situations since they will hold their voltage longer at colder temps.

      The rechargeable type of Lithium batteries are called Lithium-Ion batteries. These can be found in standard sizes, bu they still are not overly common yet and are also expensive. NiMH rechargeable batteris are more common and likely more economical. I agree that a rechargeable battery is better for the environment and cheaper to operatate in the long term.

  44. QUESTION:
    Is it true that discharging fully and recharging a lithium battery makes it last longer?
    HP (Hewlett-Packard) recommends discharging fully and recharging a lithium battery because it makes it last longer whereas, Dell doesn't recommend it discharging fully and recharging it to increase the life of the lithium battery. Which of these is right apparently?

    • ANSWER:
      both.

      a lithium battery becomes unusable if the charge drops too low(point of no return). this could occur if you drained it dead, and then let it sit for months unused. that is why it is important to charge a lithium battery even if the device isn't being used.

      a lithium battery also has a life based on total number of charges. So the more use you can get out of a battery between charges, the longer it will last.

      i tend to agree with hp. since most of us use our computers daily, the battery will never have the chance to drain to the point of no return.

  45. QUESTION:
    How do I keep my laptop battery last longer if I use it as a desktop?
    How do I keep my laptop battery last longer if I use it as a desktop all the day.

    Mine is Dell Vostro 1710 which I just brought weeks ago.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to prolong the life of your battery is simply to use it only when its needed. If you are not using your computer, it is best to turn it off, and not leave it on standby 24-7.

      You also should NOT NOT NOT leave it plugged in all the time. This is the worst thing that you can do to the battery. I used leave mine plugged in at 100% for about a year and i had to purchase a new battery due because it no longer held a charge for over 5 seconds.

      If its dead, charge it. When its at 100...take it out.

  46. QUESTION:
    Which battery will last long?
    Can someone please review these two batteries and give me feedback onto which one will last the longest and approximately how long they will last?

    These are the three batteries found in Energizer's website:

    4. http://data.energizer.com/PDFs/nh15-2300.pdf

    (You can refer to them as 1,2,3,4 respectively )

    • ANSWER:
      Which battery will last the longest is a very complicated problem...

      The performance of a battery is effected by:

      The current drain the load presents to the battery...
      The voltage requirement of the load...
      The environmental requirements placed on the battery...
      The time frame over which the battery is expected to perform...

  47. QUESTION:
    How can I make my laptop's battery last longer?
    Does a battery last longer if u keep it plugged in most of the time, i.e. should I keep it on "charging" whenever I have access to direct power? Or I've heard its better to first let the battery drain out to a minimal level and then plug it in for charging. Which is the better option to make a laptop's batter last longer?

    • ANSWER:
      In control panel, go to display, and adjust the brightness. The dimmer the screen, the longer your battery life. You can also get Overclocking software and adjust the speed of your ram/graphics card to be slower.

      Another option is buying a bigger battery. You probably have a 6 cell. Buy an 8 or 10 cell battery for better life.

      And ALWAYS if you have a computer from the past 3 years keep the battery plugged in.

      Draining it fully counts as a cycle. Laptop batteries are made for 300 cycles before they hit half life.

Will Getting Circumcised Make Me Last Longer

00004000
When the blowing of horns and playing of Kadodi started in January through May to August, announcing the arrival of the annual ritual of circumcision amongst the Bamasaba (Bagisu), many a boy were inspired to announce their intentions to be circumcised.

Although the tradition of circumcision (Imbalu) has come a long way, it is still mysteriousand disturbing to think of how a Mumasaba boy takes a brave decision to face this crude knife.

So powerful is this tradition, that a Gisu man who is not circumcised is usually forced to do it once the circumcision year starts and even the dead are circumcised before they are buried.

Even when every Mugisu who has been circumcised will testify that it is traditional inspiration that comes naturally, Amidu Wakhatenge who was circumcised on August 13, has a different story to tell.

Wakhatenge, 16, says when the annual ritual of Imbalu was announced, he felt unusual, with one force inside telling him to announce his decision while the other told him not to.

aI felt an eerie sensation go through me as I battled to get an answer to the question; But will I stand it? Even when I tried to dispel the idea that circumcision was not painful, some element of fear lingered within me,a said Wakhatenge.

aThen it all started with my friends and agemates announcing their intentions to face 2008 Imbalu, I pondered and called my father in secret and told him my decision like it is required in our culture who later told clan elders and who also met me to ascertain my seriousness,a added Wakhatenge.

He says when he asked for permission to get circumcised, he first received counsel from elderly male relatives about the challenges of the knife, adulthood and what Imbalu means to the Bamasaba clan.

He says the elders asked him whether he was going to withstand the knife or not, more than ten times and that when they discovered he was serious, they accepted, performed some rituals and endorsed him.

In some other clans within Bugisu, the boy is required to seek consent of his maternal uncles by visiting them with his mother before circumcision is announced.

Wakhatenge says that consent of the maternal uncles is what gave him a go ahead to begin a three day preparation for the rite at their traditional courtyard in Wanale with the performance of some rituals which involved brewing of malwa, a local brew here made from either maize or millet flour.
And it is the yeast and the malwa which are used for smearing the candidates daily as they keep dancing to the tune of Kadodi (local drums) and Imbalu songs from relative to relative alerting them about their intentions.

Rtd Lt. Hajji Yusuf Wamboga, a senior surgeon [circumciser] says that amongst the non-Muslims, the boy is challenged to make his own brew from the place where he is going to be circumcised from in a small traditional pot.

Wakhatenge says he danced for two days accompanied by relatives, friends and neighbours wielding pangas, clubs and big sticks, just to scare him from cowardising before climaxing on the third day with a visit to his maternal uncles for the last word and send off to go and face the knife.

Although the desire to be circumcised is believed here to be spiritually inspired; where the boys are allegedly influenced by the ancestral spirit of Imbalu Wakhatenge says he did not feel inspired at all but just had the internal preparation to do this as is required of every Mugisu.

A busy village Kadodi dancing group moved around Wakhatenge as he looked curiously at the people wielding clubs. The charged crowd with women dancing half nude scared him.

He bent further down and concentrated on dancing to kadodi tunes just to gather courage before getting to the courtyard for circumcision.

At the cultural grounds the elders led Wakhatenge in songs and dancing before the ritual was performed.
A few minutes later, Wakhatenge emerged from the crowd moving briskly not even bothering to look back as the crowd followed dancing and shouting;

aEhhea ehhe hheeaSheta umwana afane Baba Wwe, eh eh eh eh eha.. Hheeeea.hheee sheta Umwana afane Baba Wwea Hhee,a loosely meaning circumcise the child to look like his father.

Within a few minutes, Wakhatenge was at the clan Imbalu courtyard standing still on a sisal sack covered with some sand and a stone. Two surgeons led by Wamboga came after him, one of them pulled the foreskin of the penis before Wamboga eventually cut, as the crowd kept shouting;

aAkyili, Akyili, Akyiliatsililili, tsililili, awooa awooa, nde nde nde nde ndea just to give Wakhatenge courage.
Wakhatenge stood motionless in an enclosure surrounded by men wielding big clubs, Zilungu [traditional sticks used for dancing Kadodi here] and pangas with no sign of fear or flickering of eyelids like it is required here.

Whereas the circumcision posture varies from one area to another, the candidates are expected to stand firm and display the highest level of bravery because it is part of the initiation.

The whistle went and Wakhatenge then jumped up and down to signify that the process was complete. This was followed by ululations, dancing kadodi and giving of gifts to the boy who had withstood the knife.

Wamboga disappeared into the crowd at a breakneck speed just to catch up with the next candidate supposed to be circumcised in the next village as the elders around declared Wakhatenge a man, only a few minutes before he was a mother's child, a boy.

Wakhatenge says although he is required traditionally to dispel myths that circumcision is painful in a bid not to scare the would be candidates, the truth is that he experienced pain.

aI felt something hot, then some noise in my ears like 'Kwaaap' then eventually I felt pain go through my nerves but of course I had to keep the covenant I had made with my parents, uncles and other relatives not to shame them,a said Wakhatenge.

He revealed that there is the removal of the most top skin which he did not notice but that when the surgeon began cutting the inside skin, there was great pain, the pain a weak person would not have withstood.

aAs surgeons we know it is painful. But it is a requirement for all boys here to get circumcised. At times a child may feel like not undergoing the ritual but because it is a cultural requirement, you have no choice but to stand it,a say Wamboga.

aAt times when boys over grow and they don't want to be circumcised, we give them a traditional herb called Idyanyi either in porridge, local brew (malwa) or in tea to inspire them and give them dutch courage and a longing for circumcision,a adds Wamboga.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    how long does the pain last after circumcised on 3weeks baby?
    my son got circumcised today, He's 3weeks2days old ..... can he feel the pain afterward? and how long does the pain last? and when will it heal completely? ...my cousin told me to give him tylenol, is he too young for any medicine now?? .. ím worried, I dont see him cry this much, i dont know if he's not comfortable or its hurting him ... I felt bad! my husband and my mom dídn't want him circumcise, but b/cus of his health I had to make the decision, ....If your son had it done during the 3rd week + old, can you tell me how it was like goint through this ??? it makes me wanna cry when he cries .....
    when i said "health" i meant healthy, cleaner, thanks to all who answered nicelỵ Thanks for the advice, everytime he cries, I changed his diaper and noticed that he pees, and that what causes him discomfort .... His pedi did told me what to do, but my boy was crying that time, i was holding him kissing him, while the dr was talking, so i didn't really hear what he was saying ....I just want to leave the place, and forgot to check out :-) and forgot make another appointment .... so there, my brain just shutdown whenever my son cry

    • ANSWER:
      Yes he can feel the pain. He could feel the pain while he was being circumcised and your worried about the pain after? The pain after is nothing compared to what he went through to be circumcised.
      And ther is no difference in being circumcised or not when it comes to health. Absolutly none. There are no medical advantages of circumcising a child. He would have been just as clean and healthy if you had not done the procedure.
      You need to make another appointment with your doctor, and get him looked at again. Also make sure you are taking care of his penis proporly. Because if you don't he can develop skin bridges and other nasty things. So make sure you are rubbing vasaline on his penis everyday.

  2. QUESTION:
    How long will sensitivity after circumcision last?
    Just today I got circumcised. I don't want to hear any of the opinionated garbage about how it's unnecessary, unethical, unnatural, whatever the f$ck. I had an uncircumcised penis for 18 years, had phimosis, stretched everyday for 4 years and got nowhere so I went to a urologist and he took care of me.

    Now, since I had phimosis and the glans of my penis was never directly exposed it is really really sensitive, raw almost, I feel almost every movement I make with it. If anyone has any experience with it, how long before it starts to look and feel like a regular circumcised glans?
    A lifetime. That's a good song, but i wasn't asking about that.

    Thanks for the answer obama lol, how often will i type that?

    • ANSWER:

  3. QUESTION:
    i cum after about 2 & 1/2 minutes is this too short?
    When i have the sex with my girlfriend i cum after about 2.5 mins of thrusting, she says this is too short and her previous boyfriends have lasted for at least 10 minutes. I said this is probably because they were circumcised and have numb d*cks, shes thinks this makes no difference, but we disagree.

    My question are:
    - Is there any reason why i only last for 2.5 minutes? A std maybe?
    - How long do you last?
    - If i get circumcised will i last longer

    I looked it up on the net and all i could find is exercises to do when you pee but really i cannot see that making a difference to the sensitivity of my d*ck (it is very sensitive and covered by a foreskin) unlike some people.

    Thanks 4 replies.

    • ANSWER:
      It takes practice to go longer. When you start to feel it getting close, slow down or stop for a minute, then restart. Do deep breathing as well to try and hold off ejaculation. With practice, and if you have a healthy cardiovascular system, you should be able to last 10 minutes or longer.

  5. QUESTION:
    Will my Boyfriend ever have Sex with me?
    Please read what i have to say thx :)

    Ok me and my BF have been together for about 1 1/2 years. He loves me alot and it was eventually me that had to bring the subject of Sex up. After about 10/11 months of being together (last christmas) i planned to suprise him and seduce him. I invited him around to my house for christmas so we could be alone, and we were watching a romantic movie with candles and stuff, and we were kissing and making out, and i went to put my hand down his pants slowly and he was like "what are you doing"?

    And i told him that i thought thats what he wanted and he said "Theres no point because im circumcised, i'll get no pleasure out of it". We talked about it for about half an hour and he said "I love you and if you want to do it that much that i will do it for your pleasure" and i said no because if he doesn't want it i dont want it either.

    Do circumcised guys get no pleasure from sex?

    He doesn't have a small penis. I thought that he was frightened to show me his penis but we've showered together before and i measured it when he was drunk and asleep. Hes about 6.9 inches long. So he's not got a case of micro penis.

    It's really frustrating for me because i love him, i would never leave him but i have urges. He's such a passionate man when we kiss and hes really nice. He's not the best looking man in the world and he's often called ugly by people, but he's attractive to me because of his personality and hes very tall. Hes 6ft 4, compared to me im 5ft 2.

    THIS IS THE MAIN REASON IM BRINGING IT UP NOW - I asked him again why not. And he said its because he's never had a pleasurable orgasm while masturbating for 8 years. Hes 23 now. He said that masturbation was good for him when he was a young kid but since then hes never enjoyed or experiences a proper orgasm. I was like.. wow. He is still a virgin, and im not suprised seeing as he seems allergic to Sex. He says that his inability to gain a good orgasm is because he's circumcised. Apparently he had a stage of unpleasurable orgasms when he was 15 and he researches online and found out APPARENTLY, that being circucmised means your penis loses senstivity very fast.

    I decided to test this stupid theory. I went into his bedroom and woke him up, i rubbed a feather over the top of his penis while he wasn't looking and he moaned. It sounded like a pleasurable/shock moan, like the one you'd get if you were suddenly shoved on in sex.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm circumcised and I must say that, unless well lubricated, it sometimes hurts either with the hand or having sex. But with lubrication, I find that my orgasms give me a great deal of pleasure. This may just be me, but the longer I'm aroused, the more intense the orgasm, so foreplay is definitely a plus. I would continue to ask if he wants to have sex, and if he doesn't he doesn't, but if he decided to, I can't imagine he wouldn't feel good.

  6. QUESTION:
    Sex after circumcision?
    Hey everyone, so in early march I was circumcised and I had a few questions regarding the time restraints for the different levels of sexual activity. After about a month i moved out and moved to college and I have been holding back greatly. Around a month after the surgey I tried going for a long runn and came back and found that from all the irritaion there was a tiny bit of blood so I called it quits for like 2 weeks and since then I have been good. I am wondering how long I should wait before having sex? or even getting head from a girl? I am afraid the ummm, movement? will cause more blood and to be honest that is the LAST thing i want. How can i tell when i am ready? I have had sex pre-circumsicion, I just want to make sure its not a bloody mess, pun intended.

    • ANSWER:
      6weeks before having sex and 3 months before having sex without a condom. You should wear a condom to prevent the scar tissue from tearing. The skin on the shaft is now tight so it creates a lot more friction during sex which puts a lot of strain on that new tissue.

      If you reopened the wound with running then you need to wait until that completely heals.

      Hey...did you get a magnifying glass and tweezers with that?

  9. QUESTION:
    How to get to another country?
    Hi, I’m Ali 18 years old, and I’m living in Iraq, I just want to get out of this country because I’m having a hard time with Religious people, because I’m non-Religious, and my life may be on a risk because of Muslims, Quran commands them to kill who denies Islam, Who kills me will get a prize names ( Savab ) in Islam, Savab increases their rank in heaven, ( heh, Nice prize Allah giving for killing, I think mafia is better since their prizes are CASH not imaginary brainwashing things, LOL ).
    my problem isn’t just this, I also found it hard to live in Iraq, because People are so intolerant, and it’s really hard living in here, very Few clean foods with insane prices, Corruption, Tribe wars, also, There is no future for me here as I’m sure because I like to make music and also the Western kind of music, so yeah, no Future for western like middle eastern in middle east.
    The country of my dreams was always Norway, Because of its nature and tolerant people, I like Sweden too, I even trying to learn Norwegian language (Hvor er du?).
    I wanted to see is it possible to gain nationality in Norway and study there to be a musician (I like Philosophy too, but music is the high priority), I also got some nice music’s made (I’m not Professional yet but here is the link so you can see my skill; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ibGCVPBzIY , This song isn’t done yet, I’m thinking of a Vocal for it).
    By the way, I want to have a shining future, and I will try all I can for it.
    About the budget I got only about 3-4 thousand dollars, Don’t make fun of me, I worked from my age 16 to 18 to make that much (I graduated from High School at 16), well it was 8,000 but spent 1,000 to survive and live and 2,000 for nose surgery for Breathe ease and 1,000 for a good Laptop, in Iraq people don’t get paid too much.
    If you think it’s not enough, I think I can make a little more.
    About my family and parents; they are some fanatic brutal religious people, and they are money lovers and got mixed with religious made a ridiculous parent, and they are like 60 years old, well I don’t blame them because they are brainwashed, and there is no way for them to get out of that religion since they wasted 60 years with it, Sometimes I feel really sad because they could be better people, if Muhammad (Prophet of Islam) didn’t brainwash people, I’m really angry with him.
    I just got one sister that understands me and she is in Iran (Married there), and I can’t go there for more than 30 days because I don’t have nationality in there and can’t have because I’m an Atheist, I’m going there just for the Nose surgery I’ve told, will last 2-3 weeks.
    Is there a way that I can work and study in Norway, also I want some time for myself too, I’m not a robot.
    How can I go there and live there, I will be a refugee? Can I get Visa from here? Is there a problem that I’m from Middle East?
    I know I made some offenses to Islam, but seriously Islam is the most intolerant and fanatic and brutal thing I ever can imagine in my life, and the worse is that Muslims talk about peace when their killing who denies their religion or who is homosexual, Muslims oppressed me enough and I’ve had enough with them, I won’t be quite anymore, the most simple thing is circumcision I got circumcised when I was less than a years old and it wasn’t my decision, however I’m having my foreskin back with some techniques, but I just wondering what they are thinking by doing that, is this Human Creation fault that Guy’s penis have some foreskin for ease of masturbation or sensation? , let’s say it their way, their Allah made a mistake by making guys penis like this and this guys fixing it???!!!! (Maybe it’s right, Maybe Allah got a little horny when making Guy’s penis, who knows?), what a deep brainwash.

    Sorry if this question is too long, and thanks for your help and kind attention by reading this.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm so sorry you've been through all this :( I've only read a little of the Qu'ran - I'm not religious - and I couldn't see anything horrid in it, but people use religious books to justify atrocities because a lot of people are a$$holes. In the USA people use the Torah and the Bible to justify cutting up their kids. It's no different, really.

      I'm in New Zealand. We're not as socially progressive as Norway, but more so than the USA. Feel free to apply here and come and make it that way - we can always use more free thinkers :-) Good luck and I wish you all the best in your new home, wherever that may be.

    • ANSWER:
      A foreskin that can't retract can be as a result of certain masturbation techniques.

      The average age for the foreskin to retract is 10 years of age. For some boys though it doesn't become retractable until the early teenage years. This page shows what normal retraction looks like:
      http://www.circumstitions.com/completeman/

      Certain masturbation techniques that differ from the normal up and down motion mimicking sex can be damaging to the foreskin and also to the the 3 delicate spongy arteries within the penis.
      See this diagram which shows the inside structure of the penis:
      http://dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/265769o

      Examples of damaging masturbation techniques:
      *Rubbing the penis head through clothes. This often comprises pushing down with some pressure on the penis. Many boys/men do this watching porn.
      *Thrusting against the bed.

      Using these techniques (especially the first one) does 2 things. Firstly, rubbing the top of the foreskin and exerting unnatural forces on it can create scar tissue - especially if you use "rubbing techniques" a lot. This scar tissue is less elastic that normal foreskin tissue. Normal foreskin tissue is pliable making the foreskin easy to retract.

      Secondly, if you are applying large pressure to the penis through your masturbation technique, the 3 spongy arteries that make up the penis will become damaged (see diagram above). Consequently, the penis doesn't fill up with blood properly and doesn't stretch the skin from the inside-out like it would normally do.

      Check for signs of damage:
      * The glans (the head underneath) can be sensitive.
      * Each side of the pee-hole is red.

      So, do you do any of these techniques?

      Presuming you do, a few things you need to do to cure the unretractable foreskin.
      Initially, give your penis time to repair the spongy arteries that may have been damaged. Repair happens when the penis isn't in use. So I'd advise you to masturbate as little as possible initially. You can start doing it again after a while - but don't do it too frequently.

      When you start masturbating again, you will need to change to a masturbation technique which isn't damaging. This is the one most people use: Lightly grip the shaft and move the foreskin up and down, applying as little pressure as possible. Stop any 'rubbing' masturbation techniques.

      I'm pretty sure if you stick with this advice, it will retract. It may take some time though.

      If you go to the doctors , he might offer you circumcision. However, if you follow the above advice you will likely not need it. Circumcision is bad for several reasons.

      The foreskin contains many specialized nerves on it's underside. When the foreskin is moved up and down it is very pleasurable. Circumcised men have lost this ability to masturbate easily as there is no gliding effect. Circumcised men often have to resort to artificial lubrication in masturbation and sex. See here for the function of the foreskin:
      http://www.circumstitions.com/completeman/

      Without the foreskin protecting the glans, circumcised men lose further sensitivity. The glans (head of the penis) dries out. It also brushes on underwear causing the skin to toughen. See here for the full damage done:
      http://www.noharmm.org/IDcirc.htm

      There are good reasons to believe that sex is better for the woman as well, if the man has his foreskin intact:

Will Cialis Make Me Last Longer

Jewelry is among the most prized and treasured worldly possessions, and people go to great lengths to take care of their jewelry and make it last as long as they can. Be it a diamond studded platinum necklace or the humble CZ ring, all pieces of jewelry require care and with a little attention, one can make CZ jewelry last longer than it usually does. CZ, the best and the most promising substitute to real diamond, is the crystal form of zirconium dioxide. It possesses most qualities of diamond and some even superior to a real diamond. The precautions to be taken while wearing CZ jewelry are the same as those with any other kind of jewelry. CZ jewelry can get damaged by several things like body lotions, cosmetics, scents and deodorants, certain foods, cleaning liquids and even moisture and human sweat. All of these substances corrode the polish on the CZ gemstone as well as the surface of the metal it is set-in. This results in a loss of grandeur and lack of luster in the jewelry and the CZ crystal. Several other physical forces like a brush against a corrosive or abrasive surface, getting trampled under a heavy object or washing clothes in bleach with the Cubic Zirconia rings on are also major damage doers to CZ jewelry. Salty sea winds and acidic city rains too are known to damage CZ jewelry. In spite of all these factors that are almost unavoidable and often encountered in daily life, with a few simple steps and a few things to remember, CZ jewelry can still be made to last really long. The most important rule is to use the jewelry only when needed and try to avoid contact with any of the above mentioned as long as one is wearing the jewelry. The next precaution is proper storage. These jewelries are best stored in jewelry boxes with a packet of moisture absorbing gel. If the jewelry is wrapped in tissue paper or dry plastic sheet while storing, it ensures added safety. Cleaning these properly is the next and the final precaution to be taken, as this is where one might end up damaging the jewelry instead of making it shine, if he chooses the wrong cleaning procedure. Special cleaning powders, gels and liquids meant specifically to clean jewelry and precious metals are available in the market. A soft cotton cloth with soft fiber should be used to gently clean the jewelry with a jewelry cleaning agent. Taking these precautions, one can expect these to last long and remain like new.

  1. QUESTION:
    What is a good herbal remedy for erectile dysfunction and will these remedies really work and to what extent.?
    I AM 56 YRS. OLD AND I AM A SMOKER . THIS PROBABLY DOESNT HELP. BUT WHAT CAUSES ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION AND IS THERE ANY HOPE BESIDES VIAGRA TYPE DRUGS. I HAVE HEARD THAT HERBAL REMEDIES WORK BUT NEED TO KNOW WHICH ONES AND DO THEY DO WHAT THEY CLAIM. THAT IS TO MAKE ERECTIONS HARDER AND LAST LONGER AND RETURN TO NORMAL SEXUAL FUNCTION.I AM AT WITS END AND DO NOT WANT TO RELY SOLELY ON VIAGRA.IN OTHER WORDS I WOULD LIKE TO GET AN ERECTION SPONTANEOUSLY WITH MY GIRLFRIEND RATHER THAT WAITING AN HOUR AND A HALF FOR THE VIAGRA OR CIALIS TO WORK.ALSO I FIND THIS VERY DEPRESSING AND SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION ANYWAY SO THIS DOESNT HELP.PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN I NEED TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM .

    • ANSWER:
      Well, yes smoking they say does add to the problem due to the oxygen in the blood is needed for an erection. It all depends on what length you will go in order to having a fullfilling sex life.
      The reason I say this is I was with a man for 12 yrs first few years he had the same problems you are going through and yes it does so heavy work on a man's mind to the point of depression. They feel as if they are only half a man. My heart went out to him for in every other way we had a very good relantionship. So I took it upon myself to see what I could find out . I was able to locate a clinic that dealt only in erectile dysfunction for I figured it would be easier for him knowing that evey man he saw as he walked in had the exact same problem that he did. Well I cut the paper clipping out of the paper and as we were talking one night I gave it to him for we did discuss his problem he carried it around for 2-3 months for I never pressured him about it. Then he decided to give it a try, after discussing it with the doctors his choice was a shot that is given in the penis ohh a very small needle it scared me more than him. He said after the first injection and getting over the fear that they did not hurt at all. Well let me tell ya we are talking instant erection and for up to 2-3 hours. Viagra has nothing over the shots. Cost of the shots ran - each. He would get 10 at a time already in the syringe and had to be keep refrigrated. So it is up to you but for sure you do need to see your doctor this happens to men from the age of 18-90 it has no age factor. Good luck But you must take the first step. He made the comment later that he wished he had known about the shots a lot sooner for he got his manhood back and could not be any happier. Well the shot he used was only given one time did not have to inject twice in order for it to work. Also for the ones that have heart problems Viagra is not a good choice were the doctors said the shot would not affect the ones with heart problems or there meds.

  2. QUESTION:
    Do i have erectile dysfunction or is this normal?
    I am 32 years old, and I have found over the past 6 to 8 months that I do not get hard anymore just by sight alone. Like I do not get hard just off the visual any more I have to have physical contact to get an erection. This doesnt mean that I do not get turned on when I see a women naked but even when I watch porn or see my fiance walking around naked I dont get hard like i use to. Is this normal for someone my age or does this mean i have erectile dysfunction?

    Also, during sex I need to have constant action to keep a good ... stroong.. erection during sex. For example if my fiance is on top of me and we are just kissing, I found after a few minutes i will start to go down, and even if I am on top and i am in her and if i am not at least moving a little bit in her then i will start to loose my erection. I mean this has not interrupted anything, like frequency of sex, and the sessions are still good and actually it makes it last a little longer ... but I am starting to worry a little about this.

    Lastly, I have tried cialis a few times and that stuff works great, I think that stuff stays in my system for a lot longer than 3 days.... more like 5 for me, but I dont want to feel like i am going to need this stuff regularly or even more as i get older, just to have sex. Also, the cialis was not doctor prescribed... I have to travel a lot because of work so its easy for me to just pick this stuff up in other countries outside the U.S. So, my question on this is.. if it is not prescribed by a doctor and if my problem is not what i think it is.. can i hurt myself with that? Like can i be causing myself more problems? I mean sometimes i use it just because i want to add a little something extra.

    • ANSWER:
      ooh asian man may be right...maybe you are too desensitized...maybe you need something to put oodle back in ur noodle.. the pop in ur penis...the spice in ur salami...lmao...do ya get my drift pal? as for what it could be....no clue..you gotta figure that out on ur own.....

  3. QUESTION:
    Getting back into the swing of things?
    I'm an older guy -- hey, not that old! Let me just say that Cialis and I aren't strangers.

    A few years back, I came out of a five-year relationship. Some things had gone down that kind of soured the sexual aspect of our time together. The last two years had been cuddly but not intimate.

    About a year later, I got into a new relationship with a woman for whom sex was not only recreational but absolutely required, the more the better, pronto! Who can argue, except that I was having residual problems from before. Ms. New began to mock me, which made it that much harder to perform. This became her habit anytime our sex was less than 100% -- and sometimes just to be mean. After six months of no sex, we split up.

    Now, I'm afraid to get into a third relationship for fear of discovering that the put-downs and my resulting sad performance.will be long-lasting and impinge on any future relationship. How to work with this and be normal in our lovemaking, without making things worse?

    • ANSWER:
      If a woman loved you, then why would she mock you? Its her problem, not your issue - and don't make it such. Have confidence that with an understanding woman things will get back to the old standard.

  4. QUESTION:
    MAJOR Relationship Advice please!?
    My boyfriend and I have been together for a long awhile and well he has a lot of baggage. My boyfriend was drugged with a extacy, some tranqulizer and cialis by his ex girlfriend. His ex girlfriend did this because she is bipolar and thought that getting pregnant would make him run back to her. Well it didnt obviously but she did get pregnant and now we are stuck with her. But it is getting hard on us. She states they are still together even though he told her they arent and his mom has told her so. She goes around telling everyone they live together and that he is with her. I am getting to the point where it is to hard to handle. I knew he had baggage but he is starting to make the baggage worse. He wanted nothing to do with the baby at first because of how the baby was created but his mom talked him into seeing the baby and now it seems like he keeps things from me about seeing the baby. He says it is just a touchy subject to bring up but keeping that from me is causing me to second quess everything. He saw the baby the first time last month but i found out by his ex posting pictures NOT by him. His ex will text him and call him all the time and it is getting rediculous. He doesnt want to block her in case it has to do with the baby but how am i suppose to feel with all this. He has moved in with me because she kept saying she lived with him in his apartment. He thought that would make things better but it doesnt. I still have doubt that is brought on by the situation. I have never seen his apartment because it is so far away but he gets made if i tell him i need to make sure she isnt there. He says it is stupid for me to think a woman who rapped him for a child would live in his house and how dare i accuse him of it but it is on my mind? What should i do? I dont know how i can deal with this for a long time? He says she should stop when she finds somone else to be with and will get obsessed over that person but the problem is, she isnt looking? And His mom watches the baby and sees the baby regulary because it is her grandchild which is making his ex believe she still has a shot..... what should i do? Any advice? And sadly..... this is all very much true....

    • ANSWER:
      You picked a guy with an ex girlfriend and a child. Deal with it or pick someone else...

  1. QUESTION:
    full grain leather vs kangaroo leather?
    I hear that full grain leather is much more durable, where as kangaroo leather is less durable, although softer and comfortable. This is true, YES?

    I don't have a lot of money, and I want to buy a pair of cleats that will last a long time. I play ultimate frisbee, not soccer, so I don't care as long as the upper is durable. I'm not shying away from kangaroo yet. Since I'm not kicking the ball, I imagine the kangaroo would also last a long time.

    your suggestion?

    Please don't say "I love adidas" or "get a nike" or "puma all the way" because I don't care about the brand

    • ANSWER:
      Well, I've had both full grain and kangaroo leather and they both seem pretty durable. Sometimes it is harder to find a real full grain leather boot(cleat) these days but a lot of Adidas boots are kangaroo. I don't think you will have a problem with kangarpp being less durable, plus, kangaroo stretches more. So for me kangaroo seems like the better buy. I would try the Copa Mundial by Adidas, it will be the most expensive but you won't have to get another pair for a while.

    Best gaming desktop for me?
    Hello,

    I'm looking to buy a new computer, and I was wondering what would be best for my needs.

  4. QUESTION:
    What do people think about this current news article about Wal-Mart?
    Keeping a new flock
    Wal-Mart's T.F. store is an example of where it wants its other stores to be to keep upscale customers coming back
    http://www.magicvalley.com/articles/2009/06/24/business/local_state/164854.txt
    Times-News staff and wire reports

    The Wal-Mart Supercenter in Twin Falls is an example of what the company hopes to do with nearly 3,600 others stores across the nation.

    That's because the recession steered a new type of customer to Wal-Mart - deeper in the pockets and suddenly looking for bargains.

    Now the world's largest retailer has to figure out how to keep that customer when the economy recovers.

    So Wal-Mart is bringing in more brand names, ditching scores of other products and even redesigning hundreds of stores to give them wider aisles, better lighting and better sight lines.

    It's more than just a cosmetic upgrade. That new breed of customer also spends about 40 percent more than the traditional Wal-Mart shopper, and the retailer senses an opportunity to accelerate its growth.

    It's placing a big bet on the redesign of most of its 3,600 stores, started last fall. This fiscal year, it plans to redo up to 600 at a cost from .6 billion to .7 billion.

    A corporate spokeswoman said the prototype for the remodeling will be similar to the Supercenter that opened in Twin Falls in June, which includes lower shelves to make it easier to see across the store, better lighting and wider aisles. Expanded electronics areas will include interactive displays to test video games and portable gadgets.

    The store now carries brands like Danskin and Better Homes and Gardens, and its electronics section now stocks pricier products like Palm Inc.'s well-received new Pre smartphone.

    Whether it all works, Wall Street analysts say, depends in part on how quickly the behemoth retailer can remodel and keep shoppers satisfied. Concerns about how Wal-Mart will keep its momentum have sent its stock down 13 percent this year.

    The early signs are positive, putting pressure on the rest of the industry. Target Corp., whose sales have been hampered by its emphasis on nonessentials like trendy jeans, is expanding its fresh food offerings. Best Buy Co. is beefing up customer service.

    Other discounters, including TJX Cos. Inc., which sells name-brand fashions and home furnishings, Costco Wholesale Corp. and BJ's Wholesale Club Inc., are focusing on how to hold on to new customers lured by low prices during the recession.

    But Wal-Mart, which only three years ago struggled with cluttered stores, long lines, stiff towels and unattractive clothing, has a bigger hurdle to climb. And it has to move fast to win over people who still have negative feelings about shopping there.

    Wal-Mart, which topped 0 billion in sales last year, attracts more than 140 million customers per week. But to get them to buy more than just groceries, which account for about half of annual sales, it's paring its product lineup and making room for better brands.

    Consultant Burt P. Flickinger III estimates the remodeled stores are carrying 10 to 15 percent less inventory, particularly getting rid of no-name labels.

    Wal-Mart executives say 17 percent of the chain's traffic growth in February came from new customers, and they're spending 40 percent more per trip. More than half of those shoppers living in households that take in more than ,000 a year.

    While that may not be considered affluent, it's a big departure from Wal-Mart's core customers, of whom one in five does not have a bank account or has limited access to financial services.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm very fond of Wal*Mart.

  5. QUESTION:
    The longest song ever not written by Wagner. Please C/C (Do you have all day)?
    Cabbala Canto Explained

    "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven..."

    Strofa I
    A lady of privilege and rank
    Or an adept climbing the tree
    Sure of her mystical bank
    Her cabbala is ready to be. 

    "When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed with a word she can get what she came for..."

    Strofa II 
    Words are the arc of this tale
    The adept disregarding the hour
    Thru all bars she at last must not fail
    In her questing for knowledge & power.

    "There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure 'cause you know sometimes words have two meanings..."

    Strofa III
    Is it money or magic that conquers
    Or are they both one and the same?
    A syllablic statement that succors,
    What is it that "lies" in a name?

    "In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven..."

    Strofa IV
    "So pricketh him nature," was said
    By Chaucer in his antique Tales
    We lead from our trusty old head
    But the bowel's sure reign still prevails.

    "There's a feeling I get when I look to the west and my spirit is crying for leaving..."

    Saddled twixt our guts and our brain
    The heart longs for chance to take flight
    To commune with the spirits of Eden
    And read the astrology of the night.

    "In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees and the voices of those who stand looking..."

    Strofa VI
    Two meanings they both hotly gleam
    From the midsts of the smokes silent passage;
    The vivacity caught up by the steam
    And the seekers who vivisect it's message.

    "And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune then the piper will lead us to reason..."

    Strofa VII
    The dance, the dance of this useless mind
    Has caught us all in it's crystalline gait
    Follow down, follow down oh you blind 
    For the crave-lights? We'll just have to wait...

    "And a new day will dawn for those who stand long and the forests will echo with laughter..."

    Strofa VIII
    Eden was but made-up by mankind
    To describe that valley of heart's soil
    Where are soul sets seeds so sublime 
    And where effort is never quite toil.

    "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now.
    It's just a spring clean for the May Queen..."

    Strofa IX
    Against nature's turbulent chaining
    That shake us and rattle our cages
    The harvest required, its explaining,
    Leaves no peace for its ladies or sages.

    "Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you're on..."

    Strofa X
    Will it then be the mud or the dreams;
    Rotten peaches, or the glimmer of fuzz?
    Can your magic defy all that seems?
    Pesky reality returns with a buzz.

    "Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know; The piper's calling you to join him..."

    Strofa XI
    Dark Jötunheim calls and we rush
    The perilous take-ease of ignorance
    Do we hear the faint voices we can trust
    O'er the blare of ego and arrogance?

    "Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow and did you know, you're stairway lies on the whispering wind?"

    Strofa XII
    Can we hear on the slight breeze that blows
    The master's cabalistic commandments
    And seek out the tree where it grows
    And the path towards spiritual refinement?

    "And as we wind on down the road, our shadows taller than our soul..."

    Strofa XIII
    The depths are wider than they can show 
    Wind unwinds the message already told

  6. QUESTION:
    PS3 sharing Desktop's Internet?
    Ok, where to begin?

    I am Running an eMachine "EL1200-07w with Vista SP2

    2.00 GB of RAM
    1.61 Ghz AMD Athlon Processor (2650e)

    Everything is stock in the computer except the 500 GB hard drive I put in it long ago.

    It has a NIC (Ethernet) and Dial Up connections

    But I use a Wireless Adapter, check it out here:
    http://www.amazon.com/Adapter-Wardriving-Extension-Strongest-Market/dp/B000QYGNKQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    I found the proper Driver for it and it works great after I set it up with a Popcorn can that is use like a Dish, but is working better than a Dish. It can hit actual download speeds of 600 KB/s (Kilo Bytes, not bits) and an Upload Speed of 100 KB/s and has a ping of 120ms, which was working great with the PS3.
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    A few days ago I was really racking my brain for a way to get my PS3 online, and eventually came to the idea to run Ethernet cable from the PC to PS3 and then Bridge that connection with my Wireless Internet Connection, and guess what, IT WORKED.

    Problem is, is that it isn't working anymore. It worked for 2 full days.

    Last night I turned off the PS3 (After playing a few hours of UT III online) and my monitor automatically switched back over to the VGA connection for my computer. I quickly noticed that it said the internet was not connected, so I tried to connect and it said in the available networks list that I was already connected, after further investigation I found that the IPV 4 and 6 where refusing to connect, even though they where enabled in the adapter options.

    So I Unbridged the connections and all was fixed for my PC, but now the PS3 is screwed.

    Why did it suddenly not work anymore?

    Here is a list of things I have already tried and their outcomes:

    Tried Wireless connection in the beginning, but the signal isn't strong enough and I can't move the PS3 any closer to the Router. So I am forced to LAN. The Router is too far away to run a cable. The only reason my PC is fine is because I have a good Wireless USB Adapter that picks up great. I know I can use my PC to do this.

    Tried setting my Wireless Connection on my PC to Share it's connection, but it has a problem " An Error Occurred While Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled. The dependency service or group failed to start" (PS3 was on and has Internet Connection Enabled). I have done everything listed by an answerer in this question and it still says that:
    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Atf7df66tG3242el9a22Sm3sy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20080721162912AA4SvL0

    Then I wanted to try an Ad-Hoc, but you can only do Wireless Ad-Hoc and the PS3 doesn't show up on the list even with Network Discovery On. This would be easier if there was a Wired Ad-Hoc. Plus I then realized that the Wireless Adapter can't do anything other than share it's connection, it can't be focused on anything other than the connection to the Router because then I wouldn't have an IC.

    And Lastly, I decided that maybe I should put a piece of equipment between the PC and PS3 through LAN. So I went and bought a Linksys 5 port "Workgroup Switch" and another Ethernet Cable. Plugged it in and made a connection from the Computer's NIC to the input line on the Switch and then ran the other Ethernet cable from the #1 port to the PS3 and then turned on the PS3. Then tried to see if it could do anything from that point, and NO, just a local connection to my computer.

    So then I tried to set the Sharing again and it still says the same thing. SO, then I tried Bridging the connections again, still a no go, my Internet fails when I bridge them.

    So, now I am stuck on what to do. I figured I would Post this while and wait on some responses while continuing my Google searches.

    Thank you very much for any help, I know it's a long winded one, but I don't ask a question on here unless I just can't find it anywhere else that pertains to my situation.
    The Ethernet Cord I already had is a regular one that came with my old Windstream Modem that isn't used anymore.

    But the New one I just bought is a CAT5e Networking Cable, I tried it straight to the PS3 from the PC and that didn't work.

    I don't have control of the Router, I am paying a neighbor to share, so I can't really go over there asking to mess with the Router, I know it works just fine and is connected correctly, so That part is irrelevant.

    Plus the Switch I bought auto detects the whole Cross Over business and incorporates what the cross over cord does on it's own, so you don't need the special cord, but I was forced to buy that wire because it was the only Ethernet wire they had at walmart ( !!! 7 Ft)

    So the problem with the Topology is that I don't have another Straight through cord.

    And finally, The Ad-Hoc isn't working, it does let me create it, but no matter how close I make it to my PS3, the PS3 doesn't recognize it.
    More on the Ad-hoc, It comes up in my Available networks and I can connect to it, but that technically doesn't make sense, how can my only wireless adapter connect to itself? Even when I do connect to it it shows no bars.

    Next stuff I have just tried:

    I just saw on the PS3 that it will only connect to Private Networks, and the LAN connection was Public, but when I switched it it was still just a Local connection and the ICS still isn't working.

    I think my main problem to solve is why my Internet connection goes out when I bridge them, I'm going to work on that for a while.
    Hate it when people don't allow email.

    • ANSWER:
      In order for you to connect your PC to your PS3 you need to connect using a crossover cable. a cross over cable is a cat5 or cat5e ethernet cable that has some pins switched so you can communicate from host to host in a adhoc network. Some computers and NIC have autonegotiation of crossover and straight-through cable, meaning that the cable doesn't matter. but I am not sure if your NIC or the PS3 support this or not. Straight-through is the normal type of cable. but to be safe use a cross over cable in these situations

      Router (WAN interface not the switch interfaces) direct to PC.
      Switch to Switch (trunk links)
      PC to PC

      Basically like devices must connect using a crossover cable.

      You may want to try this network topology.

      Connect the Router to a port on the switch with an straight-through ethernet cable.
      Connect the PS3 to the switch with a straight-through ethernet cable.
      Connect the PC to the switch with a straight-through ethernet cable.

      Use your Router as a DHCP server for automatic addressing.

      If this is not possible then

      create an ad-hoc network with your PS3 and PC, and share the internet connection.
      Also what you might wanna do is try uninstalling and reinstalling your network hardware and software. This may resolve your software/driver/hardware issues with ICS (internet connection sharing)

      Hopefully this helps
      Good Luck

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is it true it makes you last longer?
    I am 20. I have no problems getting an erection but I've always been interested in trying viagra. I've heard it makes you 'last longer'. Not sure if this is true though. I still want to try it though. Anyway, I've been told viagra can only be bought with a prescription. No point of going to see my GP because he'll just say "you don't need it go away". I've tried 'the original blue pill'. Got it from the daily sport newspaper. What a load of rubbish that was! Didn't do anything! I've had a look on the net but there are different kinds of viagra and it seems expensive. Anyone know where I can buy some in the UK? I'm only interested in the real thing. Or is anyone here selling some? E-mail me. Oh and if it's a website it must be in the UK and no prescription required. If anyone has bought it without seeing their GP please tell me how!
    Many thanks.

  3. QUESTION:
    where can i buy zolpidem in the Philippines?
    I live in cagayan de oro and we have watsons, mercury drug, and rose pharmacy here.

    I'm currently taking Sleepasil, but it's no longer working for me.
    Last time I took 2 pills, i still couldn't sleep.
    Do you know of any other alternative?
    As much as possible i don't wanna go to the doctor for check up and prescription. Coz that would mean my mom is coming and she seems to have a knack for exaggerating and over-the-top worrying. It's irritating.
    Needless to say, i wanna do this on my own.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      I would stay away as much as I can from these type of drugs. Try opening the jaw wide several times before going to sleep and you will be amazed how fast this put you to sleep. Try conventional ways rather than taking the easy way. Unless you have a psychiatric issue, then you really need to see a doctor.

  4. QUESTION:
    I just found out my boyfriend has a pill addiction behind my back. Please help!?
    Ok, so unlike some of the other posts where people are just giving advice to leave their man, that however is not how i want to approach this situation. Please objectively read my question, and give me the best advice you see fit.

    Last night my boyfriend of 2 years was acting pretty strange. We had some friends over and one of my friends of over 20 years pulled me aside and said that she just found something out. Before i say more let me just say that we are in a happy comiited relationship with a new baby girl (9 months old now). With the economy being the way that it has been, things have been really hard for us, paying our bills has been a huge struggle, and if it wernt for our tax returns we wouldnt have groceries because we are not eligable for food stamps. He lost his job, and had to take a new one with significantly lower pay so thats why things have been really rough.
    Well my friend pulled me aside last night to tell me that my boyfriend has been buying pills behind my back for months. between 200 to 400 dollars a months worth. My mom has been sending me checks for diapers for our daughter, and food money because i have always been under the impression that he was just not making enough to pay the bills. My friend said that she just found this out because her bf was the one selling the pills, and she promised me that she has only known for a few days and was trying to find the right time to tell me. She said that her bf is no longer going to sell the pills, and if she would have known sooner that this would not have happened. My boyfriend had a work related injury and had to get surgery about a month and a half ago and so i asked my friend if it has been after his injury or before, and she disapointedly said that she had found out that it had been going on months before the accident.
    I really dont know what to do or h ow to approach him because he doesnt know that i know. Last night i found his hiding place and i found a methadone and flushed it, i played it off like i didnt know what was wrong with him but he was furious about it, but wouldnt tell me because he doesnt know that i know. Please help me with advice. How do i confront him or talk to him??? I love him so much and he is such a good father, i want to help him with the problem, NOT leave him right off the bat, he needs help and im not going to abandon him, i just dont know how to talk to him about whats going on, confronting him and helping him. I know that he is going to deny it or get upset. How do i handle this?? Please help anyone!!

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly I would tell you that you are better of without him. Obviously we both know that your not going to do that, so I'll try to help you the best way I can. Ok? You obviously can't do this yourself, you need moral support. If you really love him like you say and really want to help him then here is what you need to do. I you need to take your friend to your parents house and explain the situation. I know it's scary but you need to start from the bat that he is in big trouble and you fear for his life. Just explain the situation and ask them if they can go with you to talk to him because he doesn't know that you know.
      You ned to try to convince them to go with you or get his sibblings to do it. Take them over to your place and talk to your bf. Let him know that everything is out in the open and that he needs to stop what his doing and give him an ultimatum. Either e cleans his act or you will leave him because you don't want your daughter around that. Now, I know you don't want to leave him but make him believe that you will thats diffrent and that you're not going to let near your daughter if he keeps doing that. Try to work things out and hopefully good will come from all of this. But remember, You can not help if doesn't want help.
      Your only weapon is that babygirl, use it and if he loves her like I think he does because he's her father then he will do anything possible for you but mostly for that baby that needs her dad. I wish you Good Luck and take care.

  5. QUESTION:
    Where can I safely buy Diazepam (Valium)?
    In a nutshell my doctor has a stick up his backside about prescribing me the above. I do not abuse it in any way and rarely get through 14 2mg pills in an 8 week period. I have a mental health condition and I get panic attacks a lot. Most of which I can manage myself but sometimes I need a helping hand, which is where this medication comes in. I do not need any lectures off anyone here, just would like to know if any of you know of a reliable online pharmacy I can buy them from? I'm a little paranoid that I might get given something that's not Diazepam, the last thing I want is to take something unsafe. I live in the UK, I don't really care where it comes from as long as it actually is Diazepam at the stated dose.
    Nothing against Cannabis but I think you'll find unless it's controlled then it's very hard to know how you'll react to it. Too much THC and it'll make an already anxious person even more so.

    And to the second person, thank you and yes I think it will come to that. They are so ready to assume the worst with me. I have never abused them or become addicted. I am happy for them to regulate the amount each month but I need them to understand why I take them and to trust me. I know myself better than anyone else!

  6. QUESTION:
    Question about stuff that happened last night?
    My boyfriend and I were making out last night, and long story short it ended with me completely undressed except for my bra. He had his shirt off and his pants slightly pulled down about where your thighs hit your butt. But he had underwear on. Well we were making out (and sweating like pigs, I mean it looked like we had just gone swimming) and all of a sudden I hear this suction-like noise and then and then feel a small amount of liquid run from my belly button to my chest. He said the noise was our bellybuttons kinda suctioning together and that the liquid was sweat since we were already sweating so freaking much. I'm worried it was sperm. He said it wasn't, and we didn't a look at it because it was dark. I'm worried about pregnancy. He never took off his boxers, and he never entered me. Should I be worried, or am I just freaking because this is the first time something like this has happened? He said not to worry, but should I buy the morning after pill? Please help

    • ANSWER:
      even if it WAS sperm, if he wasn't inside you, it's so so so unlikely you'd be pregnant. and if he had his boxers on it's even more unlikely. when a guy cums, it doesn't make a noise btw :) x

  7. QUESTION:
    Had a period last month--Where is it this month? Yes, sex is involved. :( ?
    But so are condoms and birth control. Here's the history:
    With a guy for a while--it couldn't work out--and while we were together I used Birth Control and he used condoms. I'm not proud of the relationship. :( But we were very careful while together. We ceased sexual interactions a week before I left for my country. While in the airport, I started my period--like normal. I didn't have BC with me to continue into the next month. So, I'm off of the pill this month., which it's been a while since I've experienced my menstrual cycle off of the pill. I've been home a month and no sexual activity since things cut off with the guy a good, long while ago. But my period has yet to show up and it's almost always on time. I'm feeling a little freaked out. There's so much evidence that it's not a pregnancy, but maybe I've missed some clue somewhere. Help! I'm scared! Am I freaking out too soon? Should I wait another week before I run out and buy a tester and find out if a baby's keeping my blood from flowin'? Anyone else experienced this before? Am I sick? Is something bad happening to keep my period from goin'?

  8. QUESTION:
    Plan B pill [Morning after pill] Can I get this without my mom knowing /:?
    How much would it cost?
    I had sex last night, and I'm afraid I'm pregnant /:
    I'm 15.. so can I buy it without mom knowing?

    Do you think I should tell my 22 year old sister? i can trust her with anything... it's just I don't know how to tell her she'll be so disapointed in me ):

    Where do they sell the pills anyway? And how long do I have until I lose my chance to take it?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You have 72 hours to take it, the sooner the better.

      You get it at your local pharmacy (Talk to the pharmacist in the back.). You will need an adult with you to buy it.

      Get your sister and go ASAP!

      The cost is pretty expensive, but it will be worth it to not have a baby at 15.

      You should go to your doctor and get on birth control in the near future... And ALWAYS use condoms....

  9. QUESTION:
    How can I help my son to feel whole again?
    My son is addicted to pills. He is also afraid that he won't know how to live or take care of himself and his children if something were to happen to me. He works construction, but over the last 2 years has been having problems with his knees and can no longer work construction. Him and his children all live with me. I buy the groceries, pay the bills etc. where do I start to help him help himself. thank you

    • ANSWER:
      I would first get him help. If he is concerned about how he will care for himself, the first thing he needs to do is beat his addiction. His focus can then return to his responsibilities - his children and changing careers. Perhaps you can see if he can get disability while he goes to school to train for a new career. You are his mother and since he's living with you, you may have the authority to have him evaluated by a Drug Rehabilitation Facility? Check into this. Since you are providing and caring for his children anyway, the burden wouldn't seem to be as heavy if he was getting help?

  10. QUESTION:
    I used a spermicidal condom which broke and she took the morning after pill. What are the odds of pregnancy?
    Ok, I had sex (for the first time) with this woman. I bought some spermicidal condoms to keep the risks at a minimum. Unfortunately, I put it in my wallet. It was only there for a few hours, but it might have something to do with it breaking. Anyways, we don't know when it broke but we're pretty sure that it was around the time of the orgasm (I pulled it out not too long before and it looked fine). Again, the condom was spermicidal, but I don't know how effective that particular spermicide was. To be specific, it was the Trojan brand of spermicidal condoms. Sorry if my writing is all over the place. I'm really nervous right now.

    Anyways, the full stats are that I wore a spermicidal condom, which broke. In addition to the spermicide, I went out and bought a morning after pill. We had sex around midnight (April 9th, or April 10th if it was after midnight), and she took the pill a little after noon. She said that her period always starts on the last day of the month, and continues for the first few days. If I recall correctly there are only certain periods of your cycle where you can get pregnant. Was she in that window? If she was, what are the odds that a sperm got past the spermicide and the pill(taking into consideration when in her cycle she took the pill)?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, she's in the middle of her cycle, which allows posibility for ovulation.
      But ovulation varies from woman to woman. With the precausions you took the odds are she won't get pregnant. But you will have to wait couple of weeks and see.

  11. QUESTION:
    I tested positive on a HIV urine test i bought online. How long does the flu/weakness last for?
    2 months ago, I was slightly drunk and had unprotected sex which I did not enjoy and completely regret.

    Immediately I got a bad flu, runny nose, sore throat and had to go on anti-biotics it was so bad.

    Then once that flu got better, I have been left feeling very weak, which led to near fainting in the streets of the city where my apartment was located.

    I had to move home, and rest and saw the gp 3 times all of which they just checked my blood pressure, and my throat and did a prick test for diabetes and said "Your fine, its just a virus" and ordered me a blood test to maintain the levels with the medication i take for a mood disorder (in other words, the blood test wasnt going to screen for stds !! )

    On the third visit to the doctor the lady said "I am not God and I cant tell whats wrong with you, Dont come back unless you have the blood test, go see your shrink its just Anxiety symptoms"

    I disagree strongly.

    I have had mild Anxiety my whole life, and NEVER has it made me feel like im going to pass out in the streets of the city, or robbed me of all the life and energy i took for granted.

    For example i used to be a latin american competition dancer, and now I find it hard to walk around the local shopping centre for 30 minutes! 30 minutes! and its scary coz i worry ill pass out from weakness.

    I now take Selenium, Beta carotene, B vitamins, Acai berry powder and Garlic pills with a multivitamin with ginseng to just feel half as strong as before the sexual encounter.

    Thats what I have been taking for the past 2 weeks and i have noticed an improvement in my strength and vitality. Also I had to move home and rest for 6 weeks as i was too sick to live alone in my apartment.

    2 days ago i tested myself for HIV with a urine test and it came back positive. My mum did the same test and hers was negative.

    Does this mean I have HIV and the symptoms and weakness are all a part of this disease?

    If so, when will the intial weakness subside and I will get my FULL strength back?

    THANKS.x

    • ANSWER:
      Please can you go to a good medical centre , or a Sexual Health Centre and get a proper test. It can take close to three months for the HIV to develop enough to be able to be tested for, and at least a week to get the results. Urine can tell if you are pregnant not give a HIV result. Melbourne Sexual Health Centre 03 9341 6200 www.mshc.org.au is a specialised free confidential service, @ 625 Swanston Street Melbourne, and there are several STI centres throughout Victoria and the rest of Australia. For your own peace of mind you need to know the true facts, then you can start worrying if it is necessary about the treatments or services you might need down the track. Lets hope that you have a bad cold or a virus, and will be well in a couple of weeks.

  12. QUESTION:
    Addiction to Pain Killers... it must end and soon!?
    Well I have been on and off of pain killers for nearly 16 years now due to a messed up lower back and many surgeries to correct the problems. I was off of painkillers for a long time but last year I was starting to hurt again from my back. So exactly one year ago I started pain management and got back on them once again. This past December I had my 6th surgery and a fusion on L4 & L5. It's been a slow recovery but so far I am making good progress.. but my addiction to Loritabs have gotten a hold on me.
    I feel so bad for having this addiction because I am having to buy extra pills from other people because the two a day just wasn't enough to get me through the day but now the pain is slowly easing off the pill taking has not.

    So my plan is simple. Start backing down a half a pill every two weeks. I don't take that many so a half should do the trick. Has anyone else ever done this? How successful where you? Do you still crave the "high" feeling from taking them?

    Wish me luck guys.. this isn't going to be very fun but its needed. It's this or end up in a drug rehab center.

    • ANSWER:
      SORRY THIS IS SO LONG! (This is a serious decision, ad requires a good explanation)

      First of all let me say Congrats to you on trying to get ahold of your additction! I commend and admire you. I know that this is very difficult and painful thing to do. I myself am not an addict but my mother, father, and my fiance are. I have watched all three go through this same transition and I am proud to say they all made it and are all doing well.

      All three of them took completly different paths to recovery. My mother was addicted to pills and she had to hit rock bottom and she somehow quite cold turkey after years. She had numerous sugeries, and probably had 20 different meds a day to take. Incl: Loritabs, percocet, darvocet, vicadine, loricet, she had clonopen (sorry if I dont spell them right) , and many more including a morphine pump inserted in her back. She was nevertheless addicted in a millions ways.

      She was constatnly in pain but she knew that she was going to either die from the pain or die from the meds. So of course she decided if she was going to be miserable anyway she would rather be miserable living and being able to be with her family then to die and not.

      My father and fiance were alcoholics: My father quite on his own and has been sober for 8 years due to a relapse after 22 years ( you have to expected that, but not let it be an excuse)

      My fiance: Had to go to rehab, he has been 2 and this time seems to be working. He probably fits closer to your addiction. He would wake up 6 am drinking liquor from the bottle and continue all day and night. Eventually he developed medical problems and now she is 3 months sober and struggles everyday with it. He used to wake up with the "shakes' he would get sick, the whole 9 yards.

      It definaltey isnt an easy road to travel, but its also not an impossible road to travel. You really have to want to be on it though. My father and fiance go to AA meeting everyday sometimes 2 a day. They found a strong support group and good friends who would never "use" around them so not to tempt them in any way. You really have to accept a big change in your life and learn how to deal with what ever the pains are without masking it with the "drug".

      I know that you have had surgery and the meds are def. what take the edge off, but maybe you can have your Dr. reduce the dose (mg) to where it isnt as much and still helps. Try seeking out a support group and talk to any and everyone that will listen and be there to help. Just reach out. Anytime you have a craving call a "sponser" or a friend/family member and tell them exactly whats going on. Tell them you have a craving and not just general conversation. It is OK to be honest and ask for help.

      Let your doctor know that you have developed and addiction and maybe there is another medication they can give you that will be just as good with out being as addictive. He will probably reduce your dose as time goes on to help ween you off and maybe even in time you can enter a detox program through the hospital.

      Either way, your doctor will be able to help you get all the information for all your options, but the key is, is to tell them! It damn sure cant make things worse, right? I wish you the best of luck, honey! God bless you and we WILL see you on sober side!! If there is anything that I can do for you (I will look into any kind of rehab, or help, or resouces I can) you just let me know!

  13. QUESTION:
    Im in a mess and dont know where to turn!?
    I have been maried now for 12 years, and on the whole have had a good marriage. My husband has suffered with bouts of depression and ocd which he has had help for. Last year he got made redundant and things have since taken a nasty turn, although he is working now the job does not pay the wages he used to earn and as a result we have gotten more and more into financial trouble. This is in turn has made him more depressed! Im at the point now I cannot take any more, I feel guilty but I want to leave, I love him but he just seems to be on the road to self destruction and nothing i do or say is good enough! We dont laugh anymore, the only time we talk is either about the children or about how things have got so bad for HIM! He doesnt understand that I am suffering too. I try my best to be understanding but I have needs too and they are not being met! I too am worried about our financial troubles but im of the opinion as long as the mortgage is paid and my kids have food on the table then the credit cards and loan will have to wait! Everyday he gets uptight about something the latest being my birthday! I am 30 next week, I have a large family and my parents are paying for me to have a dj and have booked a hall, my best mate is providing a chocolate fountain as a present and another friend has made me a cake! So the party isnt costing any money but he is going nuts, he says he hasnt got the money to do a buffet, I have told people there will only be a chocolate fountain, he says we cant afford to decorate the hall, but Im not bothered about that! All I wanted was to have all my friends and family around me on the day! If we had all gone for a meal it would have cost a lot more and of course not everyone could afford a meal so having a party makes sense, last night he said I was being selfish! I know he is upset because he wanted to buy me tiffany jewellry for my birthday, he just cant seem to get it into his head that im not bothered by presents, but after a shitty year would like to celebrate with the people who have been there for me! he doesnt have a close family and he makes me feel guilty that I have, again he doesnt get it that they are his family too! I know this post probably does sound selfish and I dont mean it to sound like I want to leave over a party, its not that simple there are lots of other things going on at the same time! The other argument he keeps bringing up is the fact that I wanted a 2nd child! He says we were ok financially until I decided to get pregnant with my son! He says over and over we shouldnt have had him! I find this upsetting I wont lie and say I didnt want another baby but we were not trying at the time, he was concieved at a wedding party when we were offered a free hotel for the night, on the day of my cousins wedding as an aunt had paid for a room and couldnt stay, we didnt take anything with us, as we were coming home, so I didnt have contraception, I did say on the night I havnt taken my pill and he agreed we would risk it! So thats how my son came along but now he holds it against me! On the whole he has been a good husband and is a fantastic Dad but I am at the end of my tether! Every evening I dread him coming home as I dont know which hubby will walk in the door!

    I welcome any suggestions that anyone has, but please dont attack me, I have tried to be honest in my post an dthis is a genuine cry for help!

      Married to one of those myself...........never know which insane maniac is gonna walk thru the door...the really, really nasty negative one.....or the complete angry, self loathing, low self esteem witch, who has to take petty problems out on everyone else.

      I'd be LONGGGGGGGGGG gone, if it weren't for the KID, (whom I adore, dote on, and PROTECT, from HER.....) and international custody laws.....which woild surely put the kid in HER incapable hands, if I left.

      No advice to give........except.............you gotta live YOUR life and find your happiness............even in the middle of a crappy situation.

      Don't let ANYONE drag you down......find an outlet.......share more time with your kid.......enjoy being a mother.........and leave the sourpuss to his ranting and pouting.

      It's either that..........or leave him.......and then have to deal with all THAT, which will be no picnic either..........as nice as the fantasy is, that the grass is always greener elsewhere.

      sometimes it is......and sometimes , it's not.

      Look before you leap......and think twice...and then think again.

      Then, do what's best for YOU and the KID. Let the other "CHILD" do their own growing UP:

  14. QUESTION:
    When Should I Start Buying Baby Things?
    I am currently 20 weeks pregnant with my first child, and I am unsure of the sex of the baby.

    I am going to struggle a bit financially with this baby, as I am only 18. I wasn't ready for a baby, but the BC pill failed me, so here I am dealing with it the best I can.

    I know there are some things you pretty much have to buy new such as a car seat - but what else?
    What things are safe to buy second-hand?
    I will be buying the babies clothes, bedding, bottles etc. brand new, because I just have an issue with those items being second-hand, unless it's clothing - in good condition - passed down from someone I know.

    I have about 00 in a savings account, which was to be used for travel next year as I have just finished my high school education, but obviously now that will be going to my baby. Where I live there is also a baby bonus - which is around 00 to help pay for baby things. 00 seems a lot right now, but that's not going to last very long.

    So basically, what should I start buying now, and what should be bought later (if anything)?

    Thanks :)
    The baby bonus is money given to parents by the government to help with the baby. It works out to be about 00, but I have a feeling that it can change depending on income. It is paid in instalments over a certain period of time. Unfortunately many young mothers use the money for themselves, and not for their babies, which is sad.

    If you don't mind, I'd love that list of all the baby stuff I will need!

    To the answerer that said I am ignorant, and just a poor teenager; I'll have you know that I have gone from part-time work to full-time work now that I have finished school. I have worked for the same company for 3 and a half years. I am on the highest salary per hour of people my age. I am not poor, as I am capable of saving. I want the best for my child, and that means I will not use second-hand bottles (think of the germs, people!) or stained clothing. Many couples with both partners working struggle financially when they have a baby. So keep your ignorant opinion to yourself.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who answered my question kindly. It helps me to feel like people actually understand me.

    I am deferring from university for two years, to spend time with my little one, and to work to save as much money as possible. After the two years are up, I am going to study nursing or teaching. My baby will be left with my mother, or enrolled in the childcare facility of the university if it is not too expensive. I see childcare as a good opportunity for socialisation.

    I already have my own car, thank goodness, because that is another huge expense I don't have to deal with.

    • ANSWER:
      There are plenty of things you can buy second hand!
      I would try for everything, besides clothes, bibs and diapers haha.
      I understand that you find it a little icky, and believe me, I completely agree.
      But if you are that desperate, it's always possible.

      If you were to buy EVERYTHING new (my man and I calcuated everything at Babies R Us) it would be around ,000 in the end. This includes crib, car seat, stroller etc.

      Then you can count on 0-0 a month for everything.
      This includes diapers, little clothing items (new socks, bibs), baby powder, baby oil, formula (if you choose to use it)

      You're in a much better situation than a lot of young mom's.
      What is this baby bonus? Haha I'd love that to be explained, I am intrigued.

      Generally, a lot women don't start to buy things until their third trimester begins.
      This way they can have their baby shower first, and buy whatever else is needed.
      Plus, since there are so many things that can go wrong in early pregnancy, a lot of women prefer to wait.

      If you want a list of EVERYTHING you probably need, I can help out with that, we've done all of the math haha.

      Right now, you can get the huge things out of the way.
      Buy the crib, changing table, dresser(if you're buying one).

      This way, once you find out the sex, you can get all the extras.

      Have you decided what you are using: Cradle, Basinette, Crib etc.

      Also, consider Travel System Strollers.
      They are a car seat and stroller all in one. Basically you lift the car seat in and out of the stroller. It's cheaper than buying both, and very very convenient.

      ***EDIT
      Here's a quick list of baby basics.
      This doesn't include diapers, baby health stuff, bathing stuff, feeding etc.
      Just some basic gear and equipment and nursery items most first mom's like to get:
      Not ALL of it is necessary of course.

      • Glider (It's like a rocking chair. Very important for comfy breastfeeding etc)
      • Crib
      • Changing Table
      • Storage Unit/Dresser
      • Stroller
      • Playard
      • Video Monitor(or just a regular baby monitor)
      • Bedding Set (crib stuff - usually includes bumper, sheets and a few other things)
      • Hamper
      • Rug
      • Diaper Stacker
      • Blanket
      • Mobile
      • Jumperoo or Walker
      • Swing
      • Bouncer (it's kind of like a mini bed that bounces, most babies love it)
      • Activity Gym
      • Crib Soother (that thing you attach to the crib that gives out soothing sounds)
      • High Chair
      • Changing Pad (it's something you can lay on your floor at home to change them on, instead of using the changing table every time.
      • Boppy
      • Sling
      • Changing Pad (portable one, it folds up for easy transport)
      • Wipe Warmer (not completely necessary, but I like to think babies appreciate it, not so cold on their bottoms)
      • Car Seat Toy (like a mobile you attach to the handle for entertainment)
      • Room Thermometer (just to make sure it's a good temp in the nursery, babies are very aware of temperature)
      • Head Support (a kind of slip-in headrest, mostly for the car seat, so their heads don't bounce around)
      • Receiving Blankets
      • Bibs
      • Swaddle Blankets
      • Pacifiers
      • Bottle Brush
      • Bottle Drier
      • Bottles
      • Diaper Genie
      And then of course you can buy more things for the nursery. Find a set that matches your original bedding set. You can usually find matching things like lamps, wall decals, window valance etc.

      I went to a bunch of websites, and the best deals were from Babies R Us or WalMart. EVERYTHING totalled is around 00, minus shipping, and that's not even getting all the crappiest items. We chose medium-priced ones.

      And keep in mind, if you are having a baby shower, a lot of these items will be bought for you.
      You can even register at Babies R Us or WalMart, Target or whatever.
      Buy the big things as soon as you like, and leave the little things like bibs, bottles, pacifiers, diaper genie for after the baby shower. No sense is doubling up on things you only need one of especially.

      Good luck with everything.

  15. QUESTION:
    Fertility Pills?
    I've been trying to conceive for almost six months now...with no luck. I had a miscarriage last year in March (it was an unplanned baby)...but now, when I'm trying to conceive, NOTHING has happened at all! We've both been to the doctor for checkups and every test has shown that we're good to go.

    I'm a little embarrassed to ask my doctor about fertility pills. But I'm seriously considering taking some to make this less painful for me. It may be the easy way out, but I'm so tired of waiting (I feel for those who have waited longer). My question is, where would I be able to buy fertility pills if I didn't have a prescription...or do I need to talk to the doctor and get one from him?

    • ANSWER:
      It is very unsafe to take infertility medication with out a doctors supervision and the dr. most likely won't prescribe anything until you have been trying for a year, however I happen to know of a site that you can buy then online. My dr. prescribed clomid and it is more expensive at the pharmicy than it is through this site. http://www.low-cost-rx.com you get 6 months for around .00 after tax.
      another thing I would suggest is buying the book taking charge of your fertility. it will teach you things that might help you concieve on your own with out meds. also something that you should conside is some of these medications will have a reverse effect if you take them and you don't need them. try charting you tempature with a basil body tep thermomater and charting you cervical mucus as well as your periods and ovulation. there are herbal medications that you can try as well. you can buy them at http://www.early-pregnancy-test.com hope this helps.

  16. QUESTION:
    found condoms at my boyfriends house-what do you think?
    Me and my bf got together last feb, we already knew eachother, and on the first night i went home with him, we did use a condom but not sure which,then he was working away but asked me to wait for him until he was back,when he returned i can't again for sure say which condoms we used, but then most of the rest of the year of which back then we weren;t exactly a regular item, we were using the free condoms he had that he had from the clinic etc.
    He always went to the same draw where he had them.
    This year in may we had a five week break up, in which i went with someone else and i feel he may have too.
    Near to that time before we broke up, he was planning to get rid of his old wardrobe as the draw etc was broken and change a few things around, make the room look nice.
    However we broke up, so never got to see him do it all.
    We got back together, and when i went to his place it had all been done looked really nice.
    But he had upon tidying etc, moved the bag he had the free condoms in, in a little draw cabinet which is on a shelf above bed, we since some of last year have not used condoms since we both know we are ok for stds and i'm on the pill.
    But we still used the lubricating jelly that he had,i realised he'd moved those things when he reached up and opened the little draw and took it out.
    So another time when he popped to the shop, i thought i'd have a look at what he had in the draw, there was the small bag with jelly, and free condoms in it,but next to the little bag were 2 durex blue condoms there the extra safe ones, i was suprised to see them knowing that back last year he always used the free ones.
    So i looked on the back exp is end of 2014, so knowing since researching this, that durex has or can have up to five years exp i knew that they had to have been bought last or this year.
    When he came back i confronted him, he said he found them on clearing the wardrobe out, when he was breaking it up to throw out.
    I said yes but the date is very long so they can only have been bought this or last year, and he said he bought them out and is sure it was on the night we first went together, i argued on how he could of bought them where he said, and said unless he already had them or bought them quite soon after that night, then he hadn't used it with me as for the remainder of last year as he knows too, we used the free ones.
    He swears it was back then, but not sure exactly when he got them, which i says leaves it open that if it wasn't around the beginning with me, the one missing as there were 3 was not used with me.
    I just thought it a bit odd, that it was during the time we broke up, that he was doing his room up, and yes he moved the bag over to above bed in draw, but i think the durex ones i saw lying next to bag its like they were put in there in that 5 week gap,like he'd used one, and then put remaining 2 in, although that alone doesn't prove anything, as it would be the same as saying if he's put them in the bag what difference would it make to the way they were in the draw.
    Anyway i've got a feeling cos of the date he bought them during the time we were apart this year, he says no and continues to.
    But he said they got lost in wardrobe last year.
    But has also said can't be so sure if it was the night we got together which i said well that then leaves a open page which he's not like thinking like me, well it means something then.
    I am not accusing him of cheating cos i don't think he has, but its annoying me and i've told him not to say i think it was back then. I told him it will be better to say something else then tell me that.
    Please give your opinions on this thanks
    thankyou flower girl, that was a comforting answer ,i have been thinking the same, and others have told me that too, its not really my business, but for something that is not really that bad, it upsets me more and makes more of it, by him saying that he got them around same time with me last year, i am going to talk to him about it one more time and then drop it, i feel though that him saying what he said whether it could be true or not which it could be, means if he knows and i know that it leaves other options open too, for me it would create a trust issue
    thanks for your reply also happy man, yes we did use condoms but i can't be sure which ones we used right back at start, and i like he then knows we did use the free ones after that, my point was also why he didn't look for them during last year or buy any more as he like me wasn't too keen on the free ones.
    i do trust him and there's not really alot of reason that has ever made me think otherwise, i think some of it is to do with me ,i know this,well yes we did have gaps last year but he was quite straight with me as uch as i know, this year we just broke up without any sort of were finished talk, but have been together since and have discussed what is ok and how things should be, no we wouldn't be seeing other people, but i did without plan meet someone when me and him split, i just feel that as this was the longest gap we had in a fall out, that he may have gone with someone in that time,but he was the one who then got back in touch with me.
    It upsets me that i know he will want
    to provide me with some sort of answer to my query about this, and it is something that could be possible, but again it was more the date on them and then fact how he'd not put them in the bag with the others, which he found petty to notice, when i said that to him, which is why i thought it also leaves the door open that yes there are other possibilities of when he could have got them and used them,which it isn't a bad thing if it were when i'm thinking,but to tell me what he has,then makes it a lie which turns it into not a good thing to me.
    The other thing is that there is a massive 99p store that opened up a few months ago around or before we broke up, i just went in there yesterday its near to where he lives where shops are, and on paying for something at the counter ,i couldn't believe they are selling durex for 99p, 3 pack,date was pointing at me, and its same date as whats on his ones at home, and i immediatlely thought it wouldn't suprise me if he bought these here, as he
    as he never paid out for any , any time we were using the free ones, and shop not far from him, and date is bloody same, if he's bought them last year couldn't have that date on surely, as these ones are only on sale now in this shop and they have that date, which could mean they were selling some of same batch a few months ago when i think he may have got them anyway.
    I asked him and he said again,i've explained about it, and i said well yes you have, but then even you said you weren't sure of exact time you got them last year

    • ANSWER:
      You're over reacting. Don't worry about the condoms. You guys were broken up for awhile and if he did have another girl, he didn't do anything wrong-even if he doesn't want to tell you.

      Chill. Let it go.

  17. QUESTION:
    A weird dream i had last night... Its very interesting and weird please read!?
    Please read!! Lol a little long but dont dreams mean something sometimes? Here it is :]

    i was in hershey park and we were in some huge building for which there were huge lines for. THEre were toll boothes and metal detecters and a whole different section blocking off an elevator but only guards with a certain type of security pass could get through. Somehow, and idk how a kid who had been taking advil got through the gate. Then another kid after another but u had to take advil or the alarm would go off. Even the toll guards who worker there wanted to see where it took you too so they all ran up with a pill bottle of advil. It was my turn. i had gone through the tolls but wanted to see what was up there too. I had taken therma flu because im sick (and in real life i did take therma flu because i am sick) and i walked through the blocked off section withought the allarm going off so i guess it was the therma flu. SO i had been waiting in line for the elevator because so many people had gone there and finally it was my turn. Some other guard lady had came up to the front of the line saying how did all these kids get up there. and no more after u. but once the elevator opened i ran in there as people were coming out and pressed a button that made the elevator close sooo fast she couldnt stop it. The floors on the elevator were random and weird all the way up to 29, yet there were weird floors like 13.4 or 15.9. I picked 29 i guess because it was the highest. Once i was on the 29th floor i walked out and to my right and left there were open bathrooms then i kept walking and i saw this guy hunched over writing things down. i thought he was maybe an architect. there were also large open windows it was pitch black with wind. i was actually kinda scared. Then some lady is like what are u doing up here and grabbs me and i was trying to make an excuse of i got lost but she didnt buy it. She brought me down a stairway to outside of the park and was asking all questions about me . i assumed i was going to be kicked out of the park and i guess i ran away. I changed my clothes and my hair. she was looking for me.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaand THEN I WOKE UP???

    • ANSWER:
      Dreams are a way of your mind to process random thought you have accumulated during the day, sometime they will be bunched together to make a completely random segments (Dreams).

      This dream has no meaning or sense behind it, it's just a series of random events.

      If i was to guess anything i would say you questioned what drugs to take for your sickness, and you had a trip or friend or family member works in an office building and you always wanted to check out the view of the building, and as far as the old lady goes i would guess you don't like confrontation and something happened that day that was a close call to having a confrontation with someone.

      If i was to guess....

      Don't worry about it, you'll forget it in a couple of days, dreams don't mean anything, it's just your brain processing and moving random thoughts out of your head.

  19. QUESTION:
    This is long but Id appreciate any feedback!?
    Who is the crazy person in this family?
    Ok so last night there was some drama with my stepbrother. First of all let me say that he has a drug and alcohol problem and a history of mental "issues". Well he is 19 he works out of town but he recently failed a drug test and is required to go to "rehab" before he can return to work. So he has returned home and was living with my mother (his stepmother). Her husband (his father) works out of town. My 19 yr old brother also works out of town but his 19 yr old girlfiend lives with my mother. She doesnt work and she sits at the house all day. Well for the past week or so since he has been home, he has just been hanging out at home with my brothers gf. My brother doesnt like him being around his gf so much because its obvious my stepbro is trying to get in her pants. So when my brother is around is gf is mean to my stepbro but when my brother isnt around his gf and my stepbro are BFFS. But neways that is just a little history. Last night my stepbrother and my brother gf were at my cousins. My stepbrother had apparently been drinking and taking pills all day. My cousin was cutting his hair and he grabbed her ***. Then when her husband asked him about it he called her a liar and a *****. Well my cousins husband broke his nose. My stepbrother then started crying and telling everyone how much he loved them and blah blah blah. My cousin then told Samantha (bros gf) to leave and she didnt listen. It was like hello get out! Finally they left. Well on the way home my stepbrother fell asleep. So Samantha left him in the car. My mother locked him out of the house. He woke up sometime during the night and broke windows to get into the house. My mother met him in the sun room and told him that she was going to call the cops. He called her an f***** bi***. She slapped him. THIS IS WHERE IT GETS CRAZY!! He ran to my brothers room and grabbed a gun. My mom and Samantha ran into my mothers room and locked the door. He broke the door down. They told him the cops were on the way. He replied that he would kill them, kill the cops, then kill himself. Then he stuck the gun in his mouth. My mother and Samantha ran into my brothers room and locked the door, then locked themselves in the closet (it locks from the inside). Finally the cops got to the house. They couldnt find my stepbrother. Finally they found him, IN THE POND!! They got him out, got him in the driveway. He passed out in the driveway. He fell down and busted his head up again! Then when he came to, he started telling the cops that he only smokes weed to get closer to GOD because Moses spoke to GOD through a BURNING BUSH!! He is now in the hospital, waiting to be transferred to a mental hospital.

    Thats all nuts right, but the part that bothers me the most is that my mom has been the one buying him all the alcohol. Like she will go to the liqour store and buy him over 0 worth of liqour, and a 30 pack of beer! She buys him beer everyday. And Samantha drives him around to buy drugs. All they do all night is drive around buying pills, weed, and who knows what else? I mean what do they expect. He has been taking Xanax and drinken Patron for a week. Even a stable person would go crazy. This is the second time my stepbrother has pulled a gun and threatened to kill everyone. The first time he was 17. If you know someone has a drug problem why would you enable them? My mother has a long history of it. My first stepfather did meth my entire life until his heart blew up when I was 17. This is the kind of unstable enviroment that I do not want my child in (im pregnant). My mother sees nothing wrong with contributing alcohol to minors. She allows them to do drugs at her house. I told my aunt today that I didnt want my child around my mom and she of course told my mother. Now IM THE BAD GUY!!!! My family thinks Im crazy because I think they are WHITE TRASH, they think that something is wrong with ME???

    BTW I do not live with them all. My husband and I have our own house. But she bought a house .5 miles down the road after we bought our house. Moving is not really an option I love my home. She always brings my husband into all the drama because she knows that I do not approve and consider myself above that kind of behavior. She calls him and he ignores it, so then she texts him. Anyways what do i do? She is acting like Im the bad guy cuz I dont want my kid learning this maladaptive behavior! What do you all think?

  20. QUESTION:
    ok I really need help with these calculations and possible solutions really really long sorry?
    this is gonna be long but I wanna give all details...ok so I have a son who I got pregnant with while on birth control ( i was swithced to a lower dosage pill after the one I was on made my body all wacky and 2 months into it i got pregnant even though i never found out until 3 months into it) he is now 3...anyways my BC always fails on me after 7-9 months and I get switched...2 months ago I was just switched again ( I messed up on the pill too last month I forgot the 2 at the end and ditched the pack and started a new one the same day I would have if I took the 2 of them which is not right I know that and somehow I have 2 extra days of taking the pill this month so I messed up without realizing it the 2 at the end of the month where fine because I wasn't having sex but I only realized the 2 this month yesterday while I was trying to calculate things...I never miss pills but I guess with everything going on this month I did...anywho to the point...my period was the 6th of september i had sex( no condom i am allergic to both latex and non latex) the 11th and the 17th....i take my last pill of this month on the 3rd of october so my period should come like 3 days after that so the 6th I guess....but with those 2 magic extra pills i am all messed up...any who I have no idea if I would ovulate or the date around which i would and it's driving me nuts...any help would be great with these calculations.... oh and since thursday i have been driving myself nuts with symptoms...nausea, sore breasts, i woke up at 5 am friday the sickness actually woke me....and said omg I am pregnant and bought a test it was negative haha....dizziness...absent minded to the point i am driving myself crazy....I don't want to be pregnant again I have one child who doesnt see his father I couldn't do that to a second it's heartbreaking...so maybe I am doing this to myself...but with my son i never had any symptoms at all none didn't even know....sorry that was so long but any help to keep me from going nuts would help

    • ANSWER:
      I missed the last 3 pills of my BC one month (in May) and haven't had normal cycles since. You could try stopping BC and see if your body can reset itself. But then again, if you're allergic to latex & non-latex condoms, that might be tricky....
      Take a pregnancy test in a week if you're still feeling the same.

  21. QUESTION:
    My husband is still addicted to tramadol?
    My husband's father, brother and sister have all been addicted to several different types of medications. Tramadol has always been the main one for some reason. We used to live four hours away from both of our families and never seemed to have any problems. My husband was so against them for popping pills. Then we moved back home... Its been three years now and my husband has been taking and addicted to tramadols this entire time. I found out a couple of years back when a few things just didn't add up. Then came the lies, the unusual sweating, the mood swings, he didn't eat as much as usual, and I had family members of his coming up to me in the local stores letting me know they had "trams" if he was interested. He started calling into work constantly, money went missing, bills wern't getting paid, and he would dissappear for long periods of time. His dad would stop over and go to our basement, he would say he forgot something and then leave. I thought that was strange because this man is like a zombie and doesn't go around too many people. He finally told me the truth two years ago. He said he was going to quit and be clean. He went through is w/d symptoms and I believed him. The funny thing is I really had no idea...I just put two and two together. I thought he was clean this whole time. Then in February, he od'd and was freaking out. He thought he was dying. I told him to just ride it out because they had been in his system for several hours at this point. Then he swore that, the incident was a big enough scare and he would NEVER do them again. In April, a strange woman came to our door yelling his name. He went to the door and went outside to talk to her. The window was open so I heard everything. She was trying to sell him pills and he said he didn't need any, then she asked where his dad was cuz she needed to make some money. I flipped! I called his mother and told her to tell her husband to tell that crazy Bi**h to stay away from my house. I have two young children and the last thing I want is to have people like that coming to my door. I once again believed my husband of 10 years. These last couple of months I had a feeling something was up. Money was missing again..with no explanation, started calling into jobs, lost all of his jobs. He has been laid off since January 2010, maybe worked 1 month out of this entire year. Our bills are racking up, and he says he is just giving his dad the money because he needs it. ( Even if that was the case, his dad should know better than to ask his unemployed son with two kids to buy him pills). He made me feel like I was crazy, imagining things, too suspicious. I mean, I found 5 empty pill bottles, he said they were his dads. Finally, yesterday I literally caught him red handed. He had his hand closed, I asked what was in his hand, he would nt' showed me until I forced him to. He said he had a headache and it was naproxen (like im some sort of idiot or something). I found the rest in a duffle bag, I flushed them, then looked them up online, and of course as, my suspicion was dead on. It was tramadol. I asked him for a divorce, I am over it! I dont' want to deal with him or his pill popping family anymore. He says he will get help, but he lied about that before too. What do I do??????

    • ANSWER:
      I just got "best ans" for answering a question so similar to this one it's unbelievable! I had just finished writing it & less than 5 min. later I saw the best ans. pop up. I couldn't believe this person picked it up that quickly. I was brutally HONEST in my ans. to save this person from going thru what you're going thru but he wasn't married YET. He begged for the truth, I gave him ALL the truth! I partially told a bit of my OWN STORY as I am a 20+ yr. recovering alcoholic. I KNOW what addiction is. I also divorced my ex husband 20 yrs. ago who also IS an alcoholic. I hung in 12 yrs. waiting for him to get sober as I did thru AA. WRONG!!! He went thru endless detoxes, 28 day programs, to no avail. I finally could take NO more! I had to free myself of this insanity. Addiction is a sad terrible thing. Dr. Phil's show today was on addiction to pills. It's become so prevalent it's so sad what people are becoming with meds. taken incorrectly for the wrong reasons. Sad part about it is it just gets worse unless they HONESTLY do something about it & stick with the recovery end of it & stay with it & stay clean & sober. You cannot win with addictions! Not unless the person truly wants to come clean FOR GOOD. You couldn't pay me enuf to pick up a drink! I hurt my family, hurt my 3 children & had 3 divorces all due to addiction, my drug of choice was of course alcohol but they all are the SAME! Take a pen & paper & write down the pros & cons of staying in this marriage. Be honest, write it ALLL down! See which side has the longest list. Is the constant lying getting to you, the loss of money, the chances of your children also possibly getting into it too. God forbid it harms your children too. You do not deserve this insanity. The constant lies, missing money, loss of jobs, strangers coming to your door, your children seeing their father "out of it" because of DRUGS! I loved my husband so much, but after 12 yrs. of it I could no longer take it, I HAD to get away from it. I DO NOT regret what I did for a minute. He just "found me" after 25 yrs.! He is STILL drinking! I am so grateful I did what I did when I did it, just regret I didn't do it sooner. I AM happy now, you too CAN be happy too IF you get this total insanity out of your life for good. You gave it your best, that's ALL you can do. PLEASE think of the rest of your life, your children's lives, THINK think of the rite thing you KNOW in your heart you must do. You WILL be OK in time, I PROMISE you that! I am far from being a kid, but I have learned in life that if we do what we know is rite, things WILL work out rite for us. I trust you will take that leap of faith & do what you know in your heart is the rite thing to do...I SO wish you all the best...:)

  22. QUESTION:
    Am I pregnant or not?
    I think I might be pregnant but I can't be 100% sure, I can't go buy a test just yet as I'm trying to hide this to the best of my ability. I am on the pill (the one where you don't take a break) and several weeks ago I missed two because I went away and forget to pack them. In the last two weeks I have been feeling really funny, I have strange stomach pains sort of like cramp but they don't last as long, I feel sick quite a bit everyday and I'm so tired its unbelievable. Also the other day I noticed while in the shower that my chest was sore and it just seemed to get worse to the point that putting my bra on was bringing me close to tears as they were so tender. My partner doesn't want children at this moment in time and I do this has been as issue between us but I wouldn't get pregnant on purpose I want a baby that is wanted by both its parents. Also, I have had a few headaches in the last few days, that are really pounding. I just want some advice from someone who has maybe has had a child or is currently pregnant or can maybe tell me exactly what is up. Oh and I'm not sure if this is related in any way but last night after I went for a wee I was left really sore as if I still needed to go for one. It was a little painful and left me feeling really uncomfortable.

    Any help would be amazing as I'm feeling really worried and confused at the minute.

  23. QUESTION:
    Who is the crazy person in this family?
    Ok so last night there was some drama with my stepbrother. First of all let me say that he has a drug and alcohol problem and a history of mental "issues". Well he is 19 he works out of town but he recently failed a drug test and is required to go to "rehab" before he can return to work. So he has returned home and was living with my mother (his stepmother). Her husband (his father) works out of town. My 19 yr old brother also works out of town but his 19 yr old girlfiend lives with my mother. She doesnt work and she sits at the house all day. Well for the past week or so since he has been home, he has just been hanging out at home with my brothers gf. My brother doesnt like him being around his gf so much because its obvious my stepbro is trying to get in her pants. So when my brother is around is gf is mean to my stepbro but when my brother isnt around his gf and my stepbro are BFFS. But neways that is just a little history. Last night my stepbrother and my brother gf were at my cousins. My stepbrother had apparently been drinking and taking pills all day. My cousin was cutting his hair and he grabbed her ass. Then when her husband asked him about it he called her a liar and a bitch. Well my cousins husband broke his nose. My stepbrother then started crying and telling everyone how much he loved them and blah blah blah. My cousin then told Samantha (bros gf) to leave and she didnt listen. It was like hello get out! Finally they left. Well on the way home my stepbrother fell asleep. So Samantha left him in the car. My mother locked him out of the house. He woke up sometime during the night and broke windows to get into the house. My mother met him in the sun room and told him that she was going to call the cops. He called her an f***** bi***. She slapped him. THIS IS WHERE IT GETS CRAZY!! He ran to my brothers room and grabbed a gun. My mom and Samantha ran into my mothers room and locked the door. He broke the door down. They told him the cops were on the way. He replied that he would kill them, kill the cops, then kill himself. Then he stuck the gun in his mouth. My mother and Samantha ran into my brothers room and locked the door, then locked themselves in the closet (it locks from the inside). Finally the cops got to the house. They couldnt find my stepbrother. Finally they found him, IN THE POND!! They got him out, got him in the driveway. He passed out in the driveway. He fell down and busted his head up again! Then when he came to, he started telling the cops that he only smokes weed to get closer to GOD because Moses spoke to GOD through a BURNING BUSH!! He is now in the hospital, waiting to be transferred to a mental hospital.

    Thats all nuts right, but the part that bothers me the most is that my mom has been the one buying him all the alcohol. Like she will go to the liqour store and buy him over 0 worth of liqour, and a 30 pack of beer! She buys him beer everyday. And Samantha drives him around to buy drugs. All they do all night is drive around buying pills, weed, and who knows what else? I mean what do they expect. He has been taking Xanax and drinken Patron for a week.

And she always brings my husband into all the drama because she knows that I do not approve and consider myself above that kind of behavior. Anyways what do i do?

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing that you can do is nothing. Your family is not going to change. Your mother likes to be needed and she is making sure that she is. Your brother's gf is just a mooch and will never amount to anything as long as she is given a free ride. Your stepbrother is a loser that will end up dead at a young age. Tell your husband that you do not want anymore drama in your life and you do not want anymore contact with your family at this time. If and when they clean up their act you might reconsider your position and have some limited contact. Make it clear to him that neither one of you should buy into this circus act again and that you want him to cease listening to your mother complain about you. He does not have to be rude, just firm about what subjects are off limits if he insists on maintaining a relationship with her. And if he does remain in contact with her, knowing how you feel, ask yourself if he is any good for you too. You need to protect your child and it sounds like you are the only real grown-up in your family. Good luck to you. You are going to need it.

  24. QUESTION:
    Why do i GRIPE at my boyfriend so much? ?
    Me and my boyfriend have been together for 9 months. When we 1st started dating it was great. Sex life was great...we got along...we were best friends. at that time, i thought to myself DANG I'M DATING MY BEST FRIEND THATS ALSO A CUTE GUY, GOTTA GREAT SEX LIFE, AND HE TREATS ME FANTASTIC! Now i think about the 40 lbs he's gained, the LACK of sex and he cant last long in bed- and we aint like best friends. we argue too much to say that. Now we get into arguments often. We barely have sex...and when we do it doesnt even last more than 5min! therefore, i've lost alot of interest in even gettin 'ready' for sex. I have a stressful job. He has no job, no car, no money but i've stuck by him thru that. Cuz he treats me great and we fully trust each other. His mom just got married and he now lives in a dramatic household. Truthfully i Gripe ALOT. when we argue its about little things. Like why he didnt think thru something really simple. I treat him like he's dumb sometimes but not on purpose! I just think he hasn't had to think alot or use his brain to make decisions. seems like lack of common sense is a factor too! It irritates me cuz i've done so much for him in the last year and it feels like i dont get appreciation. I gotta take him places. it seems like no one else will. I've taken him to get his GED..his License..i got him to stop smokin and drinkin too much...I take him ANYwhere he needs to go if its b4 i work or on a day i'm off. Some appreciation would be to make our sex life worthwhile but it hasn't gotten better in the last 6months! Some days he says he's gonna do one thing then does something completely different. I dunno if the whole thing is from immaturity or what. When we try to talk about it i get upset and defensive and sometimes cry [i cry when i get pissed or sad or upset or mad] He never takes my advice! He has it programmed in his head that cuz i GRIPE ALOT lately that everything that comes out of my mouth is automatic FUSSING. For example...he hasnt 'smoked' in 2months. One nite he mentions gettin some smoke. but thats when i say--naw ur tryin to get a job so u gotta pass a drug test.-- but he smoked anyways. saying *i gotta pill that cleans our ur system-so when i take the pill it will clean it out til i smoke again* i said nope, that only works for right b4 the drugTest. THE NEXT DAY his AUNT said the pill only works on the day of the drug test. HMMM...he shouldve taken my advice!! He does that alot! Common sense?!? There's also been a few occasions when he had promised me something [small, but still a promise] and totally didnt keep his word. It DISAPPOINTED me. In my opinion i'm workin a full time job-payin for stuff we do-takin him anywhere he's gotta go to. and in return? he doesnt try to "fix" his *Stamina* [aka-minute man]...he doesnt try hard to get a job. Even if he gotta job no one would take him to work. However, i know he stresses a bit cuz he can't take me on dates and i Have to pay for us to eat. He sometimes says he feels like less of a man cuz he doesnt have much control in this relationship. its like i GOTTA wear the pants in the relationship. i do pretty much everything. I just dunno what the deal is. I mean if i put myself in his shoes i'd probably be madly in love too.
    ((if someone drove to see me everytime, paid for everything we did, drove me to where i needed to go, bought alcohol when we wanted to, if i didnt have a job and sat at home waitin for my lover to come over...heck i'd fall in love quick too!))
    i love him alot. its just stressful i think...to do all that. i feel like i dont do anything for myself. i work 3-11pm full time job. then see him on my days off. thats all i ever do. so....
    there's so many aspects to why we have issues that i doubt i can put it all right here. Why do we have a bad sex life? Why do i get a short temper with him when he acts ignorant? Why cant he fix his stamina?
    Wouldn't i gripe less if i actually had a great sex life? Is his lack of physical activity and weight gain contributing to the low stamina? omg give me some good answers please!!!!

  25. QUESTION:
    I was wondering if anyone knew if you could purchase SUBOXONE online without an Rx.?
    I have been on percocet for almost 2 yrs due to a back injury. I am NOT an addict however trying to get off this stuff is awful-- My doctor and I have tried weaning but we cant seem to get to the very last little pill and Im sick as all hell.. The doctor asked me to check about Suboxone? I know what the drug does and for how long but I have no clue as to where to get it since it seems most places want you as an impatient and I cant take time off to do that. I live in Wisconisin and have tried numerous doctors as I looked up all Doctors on that locater page for suboxone docs. If any one has any alternatives and/or suggestions on how I can simply buy some, I know I would be fine taking it on my own as I woulld have my husband help me out with it all
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I doubt if you will find this online "legally" without an RX. Suboxone can cause a drug dependency, there are many side effects and there are clear instructions on how to/how not to take. If you do find this online, I would be hestitant to purchase. There is a huge problem with counterfeit drugs from China. These could contain inadequate doses or worse harmful substances such as lead. If this is really something your doctor recommends, go to the doctor, get a perscription and take it up to your local pharmacy. Better to be safe than sorry.

  26. QUESTION:
    New Choice Hpts are driving me crazy! Two faint + and then three -. What are the chances I am pg? Please help!?
    Hello... I am new to this so I apologize in advance if I am asking a question that has already been answered.. please be patient with me!
    Ok... So here goes... I have been taking Kariva birth control pills for the last three months now. My fiance and I have sex quite frequently. Last month I missed a couple of pills at the beginning of my pack and also at the beginning of this month's pack I missed one pill. We usually use the withdrawal method as a backup to my b/c, but a couple of times (around the same time that I missed a pill) he kind of lost control of himself before he could pull out completely (sorry TMI! haha). Last month AF came on time (on 11/08/08), but it was very erratic and much lighter flow and shorter than usual (where it usually lasts a week, it only lasted about 3 days then stopped. It was gone by 11/11/08). Because my period was so weird, I decide to take an Hpt, so off I went to Dollar Tree to buy the New Choice brand ( testing time is three minutes, time limit is 10 minutes). I took one on 11/18/08 and thought it was negative, However I decided to let it sit for a while longer, and right before ten minutes was up I looked at it again and saw a VERY, VERY faint line. So faint that I thought at first that my eyes were playing tricks on me! I thought maybe it was an evaporation line, although it seemed to have the very faintest hint of color, and I read that evap. lines are colorless. So a few days later (11/23/08) I tested again, This time a line showed up within three minutes, still very faint but definitely darker, more colored, and visible at arms length. I decided to wait and test again because, if I am pg, I want to be able to show my fiance something more conclusive. I have now tested three more times: once on 11/25/08, once on 11/29/08, and the last time on 12/01/08. on both 11/25/08 and 11/29/08 I had a faint faint faint line (what I have taken to calling disappearing lines!) show up, but not until after ten minutes had passed. So I am leaning towards the belief that these may have been evaporation lines. The test on 12/01/08 was a clear bfn. What do I believe? are the positives right or are the negatives? what are the odds that I am pg? What are the odds that I caught an early mc? Why would the positive line seem to get darker and more defined, then go back to being super faint or negative?
    Please help! My fiance and I would be happy either way, I just want to know one way or the other! I feel like I am going crazy!

    p.s.
    Sorry for the Novel! haha..
    Also, I forgot to mention that I have had cramping in my upper right and lower left abdomen which began about a week before AF then became less severe afterward, but picked up again around the 23rd and haven't quite since then. Just recently I have also started to notice cramping in my lower back. I have been unusually exhausted recently and have been getting headaches all day every day for the last week or so. My breasts haven't been sore (with the exception of one episode about two weeks ago when my nipples suddenly became very sensitive to the touch), and I never really paid attention to the size and color of my areolas so I have no idea about them. I did however buy a new bra about 2-2 1/2 weeks ago that fit perfectly at the time, and already my boobs are busting out at the top! My fiance even commented tonight that they had gotten bigger since the last time he saw me about four days ago!
    Thanks mom 2B! I am planning on going to get a blood test done, but I live in a small town and the nearest place to me that does blood tests is 45 minutes away and has a very long wait time with appointments so I may have to wait awhile! I am going to take a CBE digital in about a week and hope that its results are a little more conclusive! Fingers crossed!

    let me start with a bit of info on him before he got with his wife he was receiving about 300 from workman's comp he got into some trouble for pistol wiping a cops son very bad keep in mind this man calms to be disabled.soon after he meet the family member he later married she became his maid basically and soon after the marriage he became highly abusive and out of control he began beating on his wife and beating people in bars its public record not only that but he became HIGHLY addicted to his pain pills so much so he for days would be out of control stumbling all over the place he dosent know where or who he is he also becomes badly homicidal and suicidal so bad that his wife got a gun just to be safe. just a few months ago he pulled his wife out of the shower and damaged her shoulder so bad she had to have surgery and will have to have surgey again to fix what they couldn't the first time just because he was on his pills and wanted hers sadly tho she never reported it to the police she was too scared of him.he is so badly addicted to his pills he beat up his wife over pills the VET prescribed for the DOGS HIPS YES the dogs meds and he beat his wife more after her hysterectomy because she wouldn't give him her estrogen pills.he is so badly addicted that he will buy and sell pills with the neighbors when he runs out of pills. he like I said becomes homicidal and sucidal he just recently stabbed himself in the side with a sword and threatened to kill his wife if she called 911 she glued him up and when he sobered up he had no idea how he got a huge hole is his side now he has had several surgery's on his back he keeps claiming to the doctors that his back keeps opening up where his incision was well I have witnessed myself him take knives and other sharp objects and pick at his back and open it back because he was all doped up. now he is receiving almost 2000 from workman's comp and has been told he may be receiving more I dont think that this is right for someone like him to be able to get away with this kind of behavior while claiming to be disabled I have proof of his out of control behavior I have some videos and his wife had photos and videos including pics of his self inflected stab wound.I honestly belive his wife might be on something too she left him twice but went a few days ago the last time she went back he held her hostage in their home to teacher her not to leave him again the other day its public record where he threatened her life and ours because she left I want to know if there is anyone who can do anything like get him to rehab or something our family just recently cut them both off he is too dangerous and we can no longer afford the emotional toll is too much on us is there anyone we can contact I can fore ward and videos and his name and other information we have any kind of help would be greatly appreciated

  29. QUESTION:
    Could I be pregnant? Missed BC and been on antibiotics?
    So I'm currently taking Microgynon 30 to prevent pregnancy (not having kids until we buy a house)

    Last month I was sick with some sort of infection. It lead to a lot of throwing up (making me miss four tablets). I got a "period" then. I spent a couple of days in hospital, where they gave me IV antibiotics and put me on tablet form. I asked my Doctor if I should use alternative contraception and he told me not to bother because there was no research supporting an interaction between amoxicillin (the antibiotic) and the pill.

    Then at follow up with my GP she said I should've been using other contraception.

    My partner and I have frequent sex, at least a few times a week, if not more. We didn't use alternative protection. I treated the tablets I missed as though I had been on the placebo pills (my "period" was skipped the week before and I thought it wouldn't matter).

    Now it's nearly three weeks after and I'm starting to worry and think that I've been very foolish. My breasts have grown significantly - even my partner has noticed it. They aren't incredibly tender but he's not allowed to squeeze them anymore. And I'm getting thick white (non smelling) discharge in larger quantities than what I have ever seen for the past couple of days.

    So I want some advice - if I'm not pregnant, how long will it take for me to get back on track with the pill and if it's three weeks since I was on antibiotics, when would be the right time to take a test?

    Thank you for reading :)

    • ANSWER:
      you probaby are pregnant. antibiotics make the pill stop working for some reason and women are always told to use other forms of birth control if they dont want to get pregnant. the doctor who told you not to was dumb and wherever they learned that from is wrong. but congrats, you most likely are pregnant

    • ANSWER:

  31. QUESTION:
    On Yaz, took Antibiotics, No Period Yet?
    Alright here's the scoop. I had a normal period september 17-20 during my 4 sugar pills on Yaz. (As usual for me) On October 2, I started antibiotics (Bactrim) 2 pills a day for 10 days, so til the 11th. Between October 3 and 16th my husband and I had sex almost every day. If not every other day. I started my sugar pills on October 15th so here it is the 18th, my last night on sugar pills----no period. I always always always get my period on the 2nd sugar pill. Since it's been over the course of an entire month I don't even know where in there we could have gotten pregnant. But I'm starting to wonder. The only thing is I almost always get nervous about being pregnant even if I get a period. So if I tell my husband I want a test he's gonna be like "Babe just relax I'm sure you're fine". Plus I lost my job during this month as well and we are strapped for money so if I go buy a test he'll know we're missing 14 bucks. (the ones with two tests are about that much)

    Anyways. Just give me your thoughts on my story. I know I should just go get a test but it's not that easy at the moment. So maybe just let me know how much longer I should wait before sucking it up and getting a test.
    oh I forgot to mention I am peeing like wicked frequently. and my belly just feels full for some reason. no breast tenderness but I've noticed my bras are more uncomfortable than normal. Like as in, my boobs are fallin out of them.
    i got a very very veeeerrrry light period late at night after writing my question. its already over too. still might get a test in case?

    • ANSWER:
      yeah you probably are pregnant. Antibiotics make your pills not effective. If you have a dollar store in your town they often carry pregnancy tests that are just as effective as any other test you can buy or go to a health department they will give you a free pregnancy test.

    • ANSWER:
      19 days after intercourse.
      Sperm can live inside our body for 5 days and can impregnate you at anytime during the 5 days.
      The remaining 14 days are required for the pregnancy test to register a correct positive or negative.

      I think you might be overreacting. Give it another week and then take a test. Stress and hormones can throw off your period. Just relax and be patient.

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't matter when you last had sex, has almost nothing to do with how the test results will come out. There are a few key factors here:

      Alright, if you are actually late then you CAN test and get a fairly accurate answer. If you test first thing in the morning before you go to the bathroom, right after you wake up, you also increase your accuracy.

      The longer you wait after the time your period should be here has passed, the more likely you are to get the right answer. I would recommend a total of 2 weeks after the date that should have been the last day of your period. :)

  35. QUESTION:
    Need to lose weight!!! Please help me i'm totally desperate!!!!?
    Here's the thing i really want to lose my "belly" fat and i just don't know how. I've been doing sit-ups and leg-ups every night for like a month but it's not helping, if anything it looks more like i got fatter then thinner. (if you're wondering if i'm anorexic i know i'm not because i checked my BMI). The point is that i can't lose weight and i'm doing everything i can. I have a toast for breakfast, a sandwich, juice, yogurt, fruit for lunch and whatever my parents make for supper (no my parents don't feed me pizza every night, they're trying to be as healthy as possible) yes sometimes i do have a second serving and i always have a bowl of fruits as a snack after. I know i might be eating over the norm, but what can i say, i'm hungry. Anyhow, it's not like i eat junk food or anything so please don't tell me to go on a diet. Also i am a minor so i can't go to the gym or buy any of those weight lose video's. (And no, i am not about to take any stupid pills). Also if you're about to suggest i go jogging around my neighbor hood, don't. Where i live it's like minus 20 degree's Celsius (a.k.a it's freezing outside) so no, i can't just go for an hour jog outside. I talked to my mom about driving me to the gym and the next day she comes home with a yoga dvd for beginners. I really don't think yoga is gonna do much except maybe make me flexible, at long last.

    Sorry if i'm complaining a lot but i'm really desperate and tired.
    I know i kind of went on a little so to put it shortly:
    How can i lose weight under all my unfortunate circumstances?
    Does yoga help lose belly fat?
    Doing sit-ups and leg-ups every night will it help, or only make things worse? (i've heard that sit-ups will only build abs under the fat not make the fat go away, is that true or not?)

    PS: i am already part of a competitive soccer team and have practices every saturday and a few games (it is winter so the soccer season is quite for now), but i am part of it, so joining an extra curricular activity is out of the question. (i also get home from school at 5 o'clock so i don't really have anytime to do another sport).

    PLEASE HELP ME!!!! (if you're wondering, i am a girl so no i don't want abs).

    • ANSWER:
      Okay... first of all, you can't get abs (or any real muscles) whether you want them or not. Not enough testosterone.

      Second, you don't actually need exercise to lose weight. It's pretty much all about the right nutrition, which people mostly get so very wrong. You need to try a low-carb diet (I recommend going Paleo/Primal).

      When you eat a lost of carbs (bread, pasta, rice, etc.) your blood glucose goes up which causes your insulin to goes up which causes you to store that excess glucose as fat. You need to change that behavior by keeping your insulin low, which means low-carbs, which will help your body use the fat stores efficiently (e.g. your belly fat goes bye-bye).

      If you feel the need to exercise, then I strongly encourage you to keep it simple (and to hell with cardio!). DO NOT exhaust yourself. Your schoolwork, social life, and soccer playing will all suffer. It's much better to under exercise than to over exercise.

      You may not believe me, but I encourage you to try a Paleo/Primal diet for a month. See how you feel (your diet has a stronger effect on your mood and overall well-being than you'd think). If it doesn't work, well at least you've learned something.

      Oh, and if you're in a place that gets -20 C then I encourage you to take Vitamin D supplements since you're probably not getting enough sun.

      Sorry, final note: I notice that a lot of people are suggesting that you go on starvation diets, suggesting that you eat 1500 or 1200 calories or less. DON'T. You could do serious damage to yourself and stunt your growth and development. Your body and brain are still developing, don't damage them.

    Ok so im on the pill, but the last pack has been hard for me to remember taking. . Im moving and all so ive been putting them in a different place and then forgetting where they are, or simply just saying to myself "Later i wont forget" then forget about them. . And during that time me and my boyfriend do have unprotected sex, because well im on the pill, and im usually good for it, and were both alergic to condoms (Huge painful rash) so any way i would go buy a test but ive got no money at the moment. . But i need to know because im a smoker, and right now ive been off my pill for a week or more, i cant remember when exactly i went off of them but its been a while, i know because im breaking out, and the pill i have controls acne... And on any other weekly visit, i get maybe one pimple, and i have about 5. . I think my nipples are a bit browner then usual. . i showed my boyfriend and he thinks the same. . . And still no period... last week i was sick as hell, felt like the flu but i had back pain and the puking was at night, the day after i slept all day long. . . When i smoke i feel sick, not every smoke, but every now and then. . and im pushing on my stomach, i know if i got pregnant this month there wouldnt be anything big enough, but i keep pushing on my stomach between my hips and its really hard. every now and then i get stabbing pains down there too. . . i think thats about it so far, but is there any other kind of symptoms or anything that could help me, with out getting a test right now.?

    the Klohe Kardashian & Lamar Oden wedding?? WHat do u think?
    I think this is the most ridiculous thing ever. I honestly wouldnt be surprised as a publicity stunt and i really hope it is. this is a big mistake for the both of them. who plans to marry someone in less than a month of dating, i mean come on. thats ridiculous, its like date for 3 weeks, engaged for 1 and get married after a month.

    There are so many bad signs!!!..... he just signed a 33million contract (hope he gets a pre nup!!!) so she kinda looks like a gold digger, in the summer alone he was with Taraj P Henson, then with Claudia Jordan (talking about how shes a speacial lady, buying her roses on TV! and in august) and then 2 weeks later hes like engaged. HELLO!! He has 2 kids with a woman he was with for 8 yrs and didnt marry?? shes good enough to have 3 of your kids (1 died) but not to marry and then on top of having her he has a side piece and he pays all her bills. Klohe doesnt know what shes getting herself into. what is she ends up hating these kids or they hate her?? he might be permiscuous too.

    Her mom is like retarded and I wouldnt be surprised either if she came up with all this. I mean theyre alreay shopping the wedding pics around and one of the mags has Klohe on the cover in her wedding dress?? intersting since the wedding hasnt even taken place yet. whats even more interesting is that its the same magazine her and her sister was on to promote their diet pills, which buy the looks of them doesnt seem to be working. i wouldnt be surprised if their mom has an insider working for that mag. where are the morals, where is the vaule of marriage with this family. i know some people get engaged quickly (around 4 months though) but not after a month and if they do get engaged quicly they have a long engagemtn.

    what are your thoughts on it all?? is it a publicity stunt?? do you think thy are for real? how long do you think it will last??

    i think this family would do anything to be the center of attention, theyre just shameless and their mom is trying to live vicariously through them.

    just curious.
    its so interesting how these girls are always paparazzi ready (they prob have them on speed dial) and ther's pics of her doing the registry, gift shopping etc, but none of them getting a marriage liscence?? interesting, if the wedding is on sunday and its friday. im sure you cant get it on the weekend. hmm, was that not on this list

    How long does a puppy urinary tract infection lasts?
    Hey folks I have a 4 month old apricot pug and I bought her from a breeder in late January. I took her to the vet earlier this week and she has a urinary tract infection. They gave her some pills to take twice a day and it doesn't seem to be working. She goes to the bathroom quite a bit and every now and then she pees a little blood. I don't know if she's going through heat, but I will spay her. Lately, she's regressed in terms of potty training. She'll go to her spot where I want her to poop or pee but every now and then she pees on the carpet or in the kitchen. I had to block the kitchen entrance just so she doesn't pee on the floor.

    How long does this infection last? The vet gave her a two week supply of pills so it might be taking longer than I expected.

      If it's only been a few days, I'd give it a little longer. Depending on how sever and what kind of medication and what bacteria (usually e. coli) it can take some time to resolve. Did your veterinarian do a urinalysis in house or send out to a lab? If so, what were the results? Were there any crystals? It is rare, but Pugs are known for a congenital abnormality called portal systemic shunt. This is where fetal remnants don't deteriorate and blood flow is shunted away from the liver. To make a long story short, this can cause them to form ammonium biurate stones from improper metabolism of proteins. If your pet doesn't get better after 2 weeks, I'd opt for more diagnostics - urinalysis, culture and MIC, radiographs, ultrasound, bile acids, etc.

  42. QUESTION:
    My milk is drying up slowly?
    I think my breastmilk is drying up or atleast not producing enough. My daughter seems to feed way long before we can get her to be satisfied and sometimes after on both breasts have to give her formula to satisfy her per the doctors request to start doing that to help gain weight.. So last week shes been eatting breastmilk and daily given 2 oz of formula and today she is up to eating already 5 oz formula and we still have the rest the day to get through... I was trying the advice from a lactation consultant on pumping my milk but seems I am still only getting an oz from each breast which at 4 weeks is not enough for my baby when if we give her a bottle breast milk or formula she downs a couple ozes in no time.. Foiods to eat to increase my milk? I have to go back to work in 2 weeks and really want to be able to pump enough milk to send her to babysitter next day with breastmilk only and not have to eat formula. I read to buy some pills but do not know where health food store it. Also am am cutting down on dairy since she is gassy hoping it will help her gas issues...

    • ANSWER:
      Try Mothers Love More milk plus vitamins, or just fenugreek. If you have a babysrus aound you, try the milkmaid tea. at 8 weeks I couldnt produce enough to feed my little boy, and now I am producing at least 3 extra bottles a day!

  43. QUESTION:
    Who is willing to hear my relationship problem?
    On December 18, 2007 I got with my girlfriend. I had been used to living a life of being single and doing what I like when I like. I believed then and there the only difference would be that I would no longer date other women. I was wrong. The first couple of weeks had turmoil because I still had to adjust to being in a relationship. Having to pick up my girlfriend, having to buy her food. I no longer went out anymore or hung out with any of my friends. Everything was great as every couple is extremely happy the first month of two. Then after two months she started having the worst mood swings. She would fight with me literally every day and night and would leave me crying for the first time. She would yell make me cry for no reason and then she started beating me. She tried to control me and prevent me from doing things. She made fits whenever I didnt do what she wanted. Everyday until one week in June she became better. She started treating me good and making me happy. Until one day she took a pill that causes mood swings and it started again until the end of august. In that month, we came close to breaking up 3 times. I go to the same school with her so we spend all day together every day. I see my friends, very few with cars and the privilege to go out, and I feel something because I cant go out with them. I never go out anymore or rarely. We stopped fighting but recently we started again. She starts to cry and I tell her I want no drama. Then we agree I will be passive like I was when she fought me everyday and then she gets mad for dumb reasons or no reasons. Everyday we fight again and I just dont care anymore. I dont think about her as much, I want to have more time to myself and wish to be independent again. I find myself wishing I could do what I want when I want again. I want to make my own decisions. Recently our relationship is like a roller coaster it goes up and down every week. Our fights are getting worse and worse. I cant find myself breaking up with her though. I wish she would break up with me and detach with me. I thought relationships would make me happy but I truly think being single is going to make me happier. I think relationships are all dramaI am 17 years old with a nice car which attracts many girls and enough money to last me. This is my last year in high school and I will be going to college. There is a lot of great colleges in the LA area where I live however I have been heavily advised to move out and see what else is out there when I go to college. My girlfriend is preventing me from doing that.

    Should we break up? Is there any way I can be happy in this relationship? Am I doing something wrong or is she? How can I get her to break up with me or should I just do it? How does one recover from a break up?

  44. QUESTION:
    Yes...It's one of THOSE questions ;-) ?
    This is a little bit long of a story but any bit of advice or personal experience stories would GREATLY be appreciated. Please read everything though before responding...

    I came off the pill back in the very beginning of August. I had only been on the pill for about 6 months so it wasn't too long. Me and my long time boyfriend were broken up at the time and I wasn't having sex so I just decided to get off them. Usually when I come off the pill no matter how long I have been on it, my period will come within 2-6 weeks at the latest. Well on September 11th I got some very very light pink bleeding that lasted for a day. It was only these when I wiped and nothing more. I thought this was my period finally coming but it stopped and never got any heavier. I thought it may have been implantation bleeding so I bought one of those fancy top dollar pregnancy tests and it came bad negative. I then bought a 5 dollar blue dye test one and it came back negative also. So I continued on with my life. Well a few days after the bleeding I started cramping up like nobody's business and getting tender breasts and lots of painful gas (lol) this lasted for about a week and still no period. Finally I just decided to test myself again to put my mind at ease, I used another cheap-o blue dye (same brand) and this time it came back a very faint + within about a 1 or 2 minutes. This happened with all 3 tests in the box. Still not convinced I went back to the store and bought a more expensive, well-known FRER at it came back negativo once again. By this time I was getting kind of frustrated with all these mixed results so I tried ONE more time and went back and bought another one of those generic blue dye tests again a FIVE pack this time!! I peed on 3 and dipped one in luke warm water and had my friend pee on the last one. All three I peed on had a thin but very dark blue line on it that all appeared with 1-3 minutes. The other two had absolutly no line (or even an evap line) on them. So I figured I was pregnant so I called the doctor and came in for some blood work. (this was last Monday October 4th I believe...)

    HERE is where I need some advice. When I got to the doctor the told me that I owed them like 0 from a visit I had with them about 3 years ago that I totally forgot about. I am not going to be insured until Nov 1st so I gave them an old insurance card. The told me that I wasn't on the policy any longer. I made up some BS story and said it should be kicking in any day but some how I don't think they believed me. Well they called the next day and said it came back negative. I thought okay cool at least now I have some piece of mind right? NOPE! I started getting even more symptoms. I am getting nausea like everyday now and the cramps seem to come and go as they please and I still haven't gotten my period! I quit smoking cigs and drinking when I thought there might be a chance I was preg but after I had the test I went out for a cigarette and have been smoking like normal. I still haven't drank at all but a few days ago it seems like everytime I go out to have a cigarette I will have like a drag or two and just start feeling really queasy. I have gone from like 10 to 2 cigarettes a day in just a matter of days. Well tonight I took one more test just cause I still had that feeling and this time it came out a very visible +!!!! I am just so confused because you would think those Doctors tests would have been able to pick up the hormone right away!!

    I guess my question is....Do you think there is any reason because of my lack of insurance and past due account that the Doctor just tossed my blood out and was like ummm no she's not gonna pay anyway? My sis in law is a nurse and she says she has worked places where they have done that to patients who they didn't think was going to pay (for any non significant tests anyway) Or do you think maybe it just didn't pick up on their test at the time?

    My other question is could this pregnancy test be the real deal?? I am just so aggrivated. It has been over a month I have been in the dark and I am stressing hardcore!

    Thanks to everyone that made it this far and thanks in advance for your advice!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey. Wow, that does sound very frustrating for you. False positives are actually very rare. So if you are getting positives on the tests you are taking at home, then you are definetly pregnant. Take a few of the name brand ones, and if they are all coming out positive, then your pregnant. Perhaps you could switch clinics, go somewhere else and have the blood test done. I don't know why it wouldn't have shown up when the doctors did the blood test. but the person doing the tests could have messed it up or something. It happens. You should go into see a different doctor and get some more tests run, so they can confirm that your pregnant. Tell them that you have gotton a lot of positives on your home pregnancy test, and that you must be pregnant. They should be able to tell by now. You want to get it confirmed soon, so you can get started on your pre natal care.

      good luck to you.

      edit, also, if you decide to stay with the same clinic, just set up a payment arrangement with them to pay your bill off slowly. for what you can afford. They should be happy with that. That's what I do. just make small monthly payments.

  45. QUESTION:
    Pregnancy Questions..?
    This might be a bit lengthy so please bare with me. Ok. Last month around the 16th, I started my birth control pill. I had been off of it for alittle while because I had alot of bills and was unable to buy it for alittle. My boyfriend and I, at the time, did continue to have sex, usually starting off without the condom and later finishing with. He always stopped when he was feeling like he'd be unable to control himself. I trusted him, so I allowed it. One night, after usual sex we had finished and he happend to tell me that he sorta accidently let some of his semen out while we were playing without the condom on. He didn't feel as if it got out on me. Either way, any is enough. Then we had another incident where we had went sometime without sex and he got off quicker than usual and it got on me, but not inside, right above my vagina. Still scared me. :-( I ignored all this because I knew I wasn't ovulating at the time and I figured I'd be ok.
    Later that month I started my birth control and we went back to condomless sex. Sometime in, I got overwhelmed at work and totally forgot to take my pills for 2 days. I usually never forget, but did. I still had sex with him one of those days. My buddy told me that as long as I made up for the pills when I remembered that I was ok. Well, June rolls around and my period came on the 10th. My period NEVER comes early, not even during the few months I was taking my pills. My period normally doesn't start until the 16th or 17th. Been that way since forever for me. It was also extremely weird. I had went pee and when I wiped I noticed brown discharge like blood and automatically assumed, well its my period, just really early. For about four days it continued as a very light, brownish colored blood. I used 2 pads total. Neither was packed heavy, I just dont like leaving them on for along time. I had NO symptoms of a period and trust me, my periods are horrible. Usually really heavy for the first 2 days and extremely painful. I felt nothing and it was almost like it wasn't there. I decided it was just a lucky period and ignored it.
    Then I started feeling the weird stuff. I work at subway and there is one single food that gags me every time. Our new tuscan chicken melt. The herbs make me want to throw up and I got pale as soon as I smell it. I started noticing when I went the bathroom, number 2, it was pebbled and not solid, which is unlike me. I have been getting weird stuffy noses and its summer. I have no known summer allergies, at all. Needless to say, I got scared, but ignored it again.
    Then my symptoms sorta stopped and the unthinkable happened. My boyfriend of over a year broke up with me and so lately I have been extremely stressed like no other. My period was supposed to start today and didn't, but that could simply be my stress. I have also been getting symptoms again. Just the upset stomach, sore belly, nausea, fatigue, shaky, stuffy nose and etc...unfortunately, most of them can be caused by severe depression and stress. So I am so confused. Should I test?
    I know for a fact, me being so stressed would not be good on my baby if I was pregnant. I have also barely ate a thing since the whole ordeal and when I try, I feel sick, like I am going to throw up all over if I try to eat. I know not eating wouldn't be good either. I am just one emotional wreck right now. What do you think? If I am pregnant, I no longer have the babies daddy. I am 20, and having a baby wouldnt be something I'd hate. I just dont want my emotions to hurt him/her. Thanks
    To kathryn,
    No, I stopped taking birth control.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest get a test & if your period doesn't show up today test w/ your first morning urine tomorrow. Your cycle could be messed up because you stopped taking the pill for a short period of time & then started back up...that could definitely make things go a little crazy for a while. The light period you described could have also been implantation bleeding. It could go either way here....I think its too early for any kind of pregnancy symptoms & its more then likely due to the stress for the breakup (which I'm sorry to hear about, they're always so hard in the beginning). Just relax & wait to test tomorrow. Good luck

  46. QUESTION:
    mixing two different types of birth control at once?
    My boyfriend and i planned a trip to cancun next month for our anniversary I picked the dates that i knew i was not going to be on my period. last month my cycle changed and i got my period one week earlier than expected then this month i got it a few days earlier. So obviously it will come next month during my vacation!! I called my dr right away and she told me the only thing she can do is put me on birth control pills (Yasmin) and skip the placebo pills and continue with the next pack...I have not been on birth control pills in a really long time so she told me it might only be a 50% chance of it working but it is better than nothing. I even got a second opinion from planned parent hood and they told me the same thing to do the whole bcp trick. I asked both times if there is anything else i could do or if there is another pill i could take to delay my period. Both Dr and planned said no. after doing some research i found that pill called norethisterone 5 mg which is also another type of birth control pill. A lot of people say it worked for them. I found some sites where u can buy it online w/o a prescription. I was wondering if i can take norethisterone with the yasmin (skip the placebo) trick . Or should i stop the yasmin and just take norethisterone??
    I do want to get pregnant after our trip. So the Dr put me on yasmin and i've been taking it for over a week now but im starting to get worried i really do not want my period during my vacation. Are there other alternatives?? such as drinking a specific type of tea? or drinking pure lemon juice?? I just want to at least delay it for a few days.

    • ANSWER:
      Take the birth control the doc prescribed.

      Take the "Plan B" emergency contraceptive within 48 hours of the end of the sexual events of your anniversary.

      For some practical implications: say you mess around for three days, perhaps even many times during those three days. Take the Plan B 12-24 hours after the last sexual encounter.

      Talk with your man about this too. If you're this intimate with the guy, you and he should be able to talk about the risks, possibilities, and available courses of action.

    mixing norethisterone with birth control?

    • ANSWER:
      Norethisterone is an artificial progesterone. Your birth control pill contains an artificial progesterone. There's no point in doubling up on the progesterone--it could make you depressed and give you cramps and your bleeding would be all the heavier later. If the birth control pills won't work, then the norethisterone won't work. Just stick to the birth control and bring tampons.

What Will Make Me Last Longer

There are many relationships where the last time they shared a "I Love You" was at the airport or train station. There are thousands of people in couples wanting to know how to make long distance relationships work.

Distance can be a huge issue that can destroy a relationship. Long distance relationships MOST DEFINITELY work, and it just takes commitment from both partners to make it work. If both partner really want to make their relationship work, distance is an obstacle that can be easily overcome.

There are many factors that force a relationship into a long distance one. Job commitment, school, or obligations to the military. Those in the military make huge commitments. I know someone whose husband served overseas for 4 years. 4 years away from his family in service to his country.

This is absolutely true and so many people are going through it. The only way to make relationships like this work is by effective communication and being spontaneous for your partner who is away. When you're thousands of miles apart from each other, its easy to feel separated from each other.

It takes trust, communication, and commitment to make long distance relationships work. You have to trust your partner to be faithful, you have to have a strong line of communication, and you have to be committed in these types of relationship.

With all the technology today, you can pick up a cell phone and have a video chat with someone who is country away. Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Myspace have been used for years as a way for people staying in touch with each other.

These sites are perfect for people in long distance relationships. Hundreds of marines keep a Facebook profile to stay in touch with their families. In a long distance relationship the two of you should talk to each other at least 3 times a week.

Letting each other know what's going on in your lives. The sweetest thing to do if you want to know how to make long distance relationships work is to send gifts, family pictures (or private) to your partner overseas, to make sure they feel in touch with you. Do everything you can to stay connected with your partner.

    How can I make sure that my laptops battery will last longer?
    I noticed that my old laptops battery didn't hold it's charge anymore. It would have to be plugged in the entire time otherwise it would shut off and die right away.

    With my new laptop, I want to make sure that its battery will hold it's charge and last longer than my older one. What steps should I take or what should I do to make sure it will last?

    • ANSWER:
      Never leave the battery in your laptop when it's fully charge and hooked onto the wall.

      Once the battery is fully charge, take it out of your laptop unless you are going to power your laptop with it.

      Try to always wait until the battery is low to recharge it as you will minimize the number of cycles (charging and discharging). laptop batteries have a limited number of cycles before they don't hold a charge.

    Will a heavier flow make my period last longer?
    I've been having a pretty heavy period (don't know what's causing it... maybe it's my cold?). My period is 5 days long and it's the 4th day, and my period's still pretty heavy, only a bit lighter than the heaviest day (day 2). Does that mean it will last longer?

    • ANSWER:
      no its probably because you are sick your body is probably producing more mucus than normal and your flow should only ask for two or three additional days. if not see your doctor

    • ANSWER:
      You're going down the wrong path. You never want to cultivate the sex drive in your husband, or pour kerosene on the fire. It's better that it's accomplished quickly.

      You need to stop listening to liberal psychologists and sexologists. They don't know a thing and they're completely stupid.

      And also don't listen to the people on this board, who really don't have a lot of understanding, either.

      P.S. Don't buy into the "female orgasm" mentality. Sex for women is mainly for having children, and there's normally not an overwhelming drive, otherwise men would be selling thier bodies to women and not vice versa.

  10. QUESTION:
    Will wearing shoes less make them last longer?
    A friend of mine said that, if you buy 2 pairs of the same shoes, you should alternate the days that you wear them. This gives each pair of shoes a chance to "bounce back" in between uses and will make both pairs last longer than if you just wore the same pair every day. I'm wondering if anyone else has heard this and if there is any credence to the claim. Just in case I'm not clear, let's say that you have 2 pairs of shoes that each would last for 100 days (just as an example). You could wear shoe A for 100 days, then wear shoe B for 100 days, getting 200 total days out of the shoes. This claim is that if you wore shoe A one day, then shoe B the next day, then back to shoe A, etc, you could extend the life of each shoe and get more than 200 total days out of the shoes. (I know this isn't a perfect example, but hopefully you get the point). I could see how it might SEEM like they were lasting longer. I don't know that I really believe that letting a shoe sit for a day is going to allow it to "bounce back" and last longer.
    Has anyone else heard this and what do you think of it?
    Obviously, if you wear shoes less they will last more time. That's not the question. If I buy shoes now and never wear them, they would last until they bio-degrade.
    The question has more to do with getting more total use out of a shoe, which is why I question the validity of the "bounce back" theory. I guess I just don't buy that not wearing a shoe allows it time to regain some of "whatever" it is that it lost while you were wearing the shoe over the course of a day.

    • ANSWER:
      There are many ways to define the lifetime of a shoe. What your friend is likely referring to is the cushioning lifetime. Every time you run in your shoes you are effectively compressing the sole of the shoe. When you take your shoes off, the soles will begin to decompress and bounce back. The more time between runs, the more time the soles have to bounce back.

      If you compare a brand new pair of shoes with a pair having lots of mileage on them you can visually see and also feel a difference in the cushioning.

      In the old days I would purchase one pair of shoes, wear them for a few hundred running miles, then replace them with a new pair. For the last few years i've have switched strategies and have alternated between 2 to 4 pairs of shoes. I'm routinely getting double to triple the 'recommended' mileage out of each set now (600 - 900 miles or more).

    Will getting my hair dyed at a salon really make it last longer?
    I dyed my hair bright red-orange and I love it. I want to keep this color, but it fades very very quickly; in about 2 weeks (I have blond hair underneath). I avoided going to the salon: a) to make sure i like this color and b) they've always disappointed me with color in the past - at least 3 times they've ignored what I wanted and the difference was barely evident.

    So if I take my chances with a salon and it turns out the color I want, how long will it last? I know reds fade the quickest....

  18. QUESTION:
    What is gas treatment? where can i get it? will it make my gas last longer for a long trip?what is it called?
    How do i use it? what is it called? will it help me save money on a long trip i have to take? let me know more about this stuff!!

    • ANSWER:
      I had an old Acura Legend and tried to boost the mileage/power with gasoline additives. Usually, you just empty a bottle of such treatment into your gas tank when full. Thus, you get a fairly diluted mixture of gasoline and additive that is supposed to clean out gunk from your fuel injectors, etc, and boost power / mileage.

      Problem is that adding anything non-gasoline to your fuel tank can void your warranty (as to how your auto manufacturer will ever find out is another story). Also, the additive may not necessarily be quality and can eventually erode your gaskets and seals. It is a long shot, but I asked my mechanic about such gas treatments, and he told me it is basically a waste of money.

      Another mechanic concurred. So I stopped wasting my money on useless products.

      Best way to boost your mileage is to drive 55 MPH on cruise control. Yeah, it is boring, I know. But I drove my (new) Nissan Maxima (gets 27-29 MPG on average) from California to Indiana and was getting closer to 38-40 MPG using the above method. Try it, it really works.

  19. QUESTION:
    Will refrigerating/freezing cosmetics make them last longer?
    This is such a strange question, but it came across my mind the other day when I was told to store cosmetics in a dark, cool place away from light, heat and humidity and to try not to use my bare hands, to not contaminate it with bacteria.

    That should keep them fresh, however what if we choose to refrigerate or freeze them?

    Then again I'm sure that will totally affect the chemical structure of many of the ingredients since I'm sure they have a middle range temperature that they should be kept under at all times ,not to fall too low or drop too high.

    Also do they really only last as short as 3 months to 2 years? I mean that's really NOT that long of a time, and especially if the product is unopened or in one of those light-proof bottles, I don't see why we should throw them away, especially if they were extremely expensive bottles like, grand creams.

    • ANSWER:
      She doesn't mean tofreeze them, she means to say to keep them in a cool place. Don't keep them on top of a microwave or anything, because it can get hot and you'll have to throw it out. And keep it away from windows so that the sun wont hit it.

    How long will a homemade cocktail last after being mixed?
    I want to know, how long will a homemade cocktail last after being mixed? What would be the best way to make it last longer if there is one. Which drinks will last longer? Hopefully someone can help me with this question. :)

    Thank you N Happy Holidays!

    • ANSWER:
      Basically if it contains milk, eggs or cream no more then 2 hours unrefrigerated. The good thing is whatever you mixed contains a natural preservative, alcohol. The bad thing is that once diluted it looses most of its preservative quality. It is best you keep it unmixed until it is time to serve it. But you can premix things like daiquiris in a bottle for about 6 hours. But if it is egg based, like eggnog, keep it refrigerated until it is time to drink it.

    How long will the American government last, and what should be done to make it last longer?

    American is 300 years old, and within the past century, has overcome Nazi Germany and become the major world power, having outlasted the Russian world superpower's Soviet Union 20 years ago.

    What does America have to do (re: legislative, cultural, behavioral, anything!) in terms of changes or keeping things the same in order to last? What does it have to do to adapt and survive?

    A century more, 200 years, another 300 years, a millennium more, 3,000 years, etc.
    -or will America go the way of the Roman empire (let alone any empire in recent and classical history) and eventually fail? Is the end of the American just plain inevitable? Nothing it can do to adapt?

      Seriously, corruption and greed has been the downfall of every governement. We will be no exception if we dont get our heads out of our butts.

      People need to become more self reliant and self aware. Waiting around for the governement to do things makes them more powerful, believing every single headline you read does also.

      Devisive tactics played on by big gov (equal now to big business): Race, tax bracket, political party, religion, sexual preference. None of these things matter in the long run. Stop turning against each other and turn against the governement for making us the world's whipping boy.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are saying bad skin as in acne, getting some sun is helpful. It helps with vitamin D production and gives you some color. But over doing it would be back, go for a light color not tan. Make sure to wear a moisturizer with sunscreen all the time to keep your skin healthy and protected. Sun makes you feel good but sunscreen helps protect from UVA/UVB radiation that causes cancer.

      Make sure you have a good routine of washing in the morning/night, using moisturizer, not touching your face during the day and changing your pillowcase regularly. Healthy skin is the best way to fight acne.

    Do regular condoms make you last longer?
    I had sex for the first time without a condom. And I didn't last very long at all. About 30 seconds. Will putting on a condom make me last longer? If so what kind?

    • ANSWER:
      Use a climax control condom of any brand to last longer. Such condoms have numbing gel inside them. If you are uncircumcised, pull back your fore-skin, rub the gel all over your penise head, then wear the condom. However, if you are circumcised, you can wear the condom directly. Buy a condom that has numbing gel only on its inner side, not on its outer side, or it will numb your partner's vagina too.

  34. QUESTION:
    Should I make this girl slow down so this will last longer?
    This girl and I have been getting closer and closer to each other over the past month. She was fighting with her boyfriend, I helped her out, comforted her, walked her home (she was lost, he'd ditched her). Since that night she's been inviting me over every weekend to hang out with her and her roommates. Her boyfriend has been there sometimes... but even if things start off alright between them they'd always end up fighting and he'd always end up leaving.

    The last couple of weeks she would let me come up and hug her after a fight, and would always hold my hand til I chose to let go. Finally this last weekend she broke up with the guy. He'd left for the night because her place was 'too loud' and she wouldn't kick out her roommate's friends and I. He then came back at 1am and tried to score with her even though he'd been gone and that's when she said they were done. After that she sat sideways in a love seat and just cried for a while. I came up, sat down next to her, and a few hours later she's asking if I want to watch movies in bed for a while with her.

    I was drunk, I liked this girl, I agreed. All that happened though is we ended up cuddling. Which I was fine with. I admit I tried to push the boundaries a bit but she didn't seem to want to do anything else so I didn't do anything other than hold her the entire time. The next day she texts me telling me she'd really wanted to spend the entire time making out and should have done so with how nice I've been to her, but she chickened out and promised 'good odds' of it happening next time.

    Now, completely sober, I know I like this girl. I would love to date her, not be a rebound guy. What can I do to make sure that happens?

      If you want to last longer, think about baseball or something...

  41. QUESTION:
    How can I make my iPod battery last longer during a road trip?
    I will be going on a 10 hour road trip on Friday, and don't have a car charger. I will be bringing my iPod along, but would like to know what way drains the iPod battery faster?

    -Keeping music on shuffle, WITHOUT skipping.
    -OR picking which songs I want to listen to from the menu.

    And how long do you think it will last? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      To make your iPod battery last longer, keep it on shuffle. You will want to put it on hold. If you are desperate, and just have to watch a movie, watch part of it, pause it and turn it off, wait 15- 30 min., then watch another section, and so forth. The backlight takes up some battery too, so put it on hold (like I said) OR turn the backlight completely off, to save even more battery. I really hope I helped, and I hope you're on a road trip with people you like or else...

      Seriously Hope I Helped,

      Anna

  43. QUESTION:
    What can I do to make mascara last longer in the tube?
    Is there anything I can do to make mascara last longer in the tube? When it starts to get to the end, it starts getting drier, clumpy, hard to apply evenly... of course running the tube under hot water helps tremendously, but then you're just worse off the next time you go to use it if you don't use the hot-water technique again. Can I add a couple drops of something in the tube itself? Will adding water to it and shaking vigorously just make it worse? Any tips?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      adding a drop of olive oil will help you out .

      don't try to add any other oil other than olive oil though .

  44. QUESTION:
    How long will a live christmas tree last indoors? What is the proper way to make it last as long as I can?

    how about not answering a question w/o an actual answer to the question!

    • ANSWER:
      Make sure there is a fresh cut on the bottom of the stem. This will allow water to flow into the tree. Make sure there is ALWAYS enough water in the stand...should go as high up into the trunk as possible, with the trunk almost all the way into the stand. Some people put sugar in the water. Some put aspirin in. Either will help the tree last longer. Dont put the tree in direct sunlight.

      How long a tree lasts is a function of how you take care of it, and how it was cared for before you got it. A tree will usually last two to four weeks if you keep it moist. When the needles start drying out and falling off, it's time to chuck it. I'd wait at least a week before setting it up.

  46. QUESTION:
    What can I use to make eyeshadow last longer?
    I've heard you can put chapstick or vaseline on your eyelids before you apply the eyeshadow, but do they really work? Is there anything else that works better? Or something I can buy so that my eyeshadow will stay on longer and not clump in the crease, you know?

    • ANSWER:
      It works. Trust me. My eyeshadow lasts until the next MORNING if I don't wash it off. Just get some cheap Chapstick JUST for your eyelids, rub it on, and put on your powder eyeshadow. Make sure you put it on AFTER you put on eyeliner though. It works REALLY well, too. And, if you're lazy, you can just put on the Chapstick, and it makes your eyes look bigger. Hope this helps.

      MAC also makes eyeshadow bases, but they're horribly expensive. I just use 79 cent Chapstick, and it makes the color stay and look more vibrant. It's the perfect beauty secret. :)

  47. QUESTION:
    What car maintenance routines will make a new/good car last a long time?
    I would just like to learn from other peoples experience and maybe pick-up a few tips to make my vehicles last/save a few bucks.

    • ANSWER:
      Dear Routine-

      The manufactuer has placed the maintence intervals in your owners manual(s). These are a simple guideline for the minimum abount of care needed.

      When people ask me about the care of their vehicle, I normally suggest the following:

      Annually change the coolant, transmission fluid, rear end oil, (if equipped), and the fluid in the transfer case, (4x4 equipped), air filter fuel filter and spark plugs.

      Though many of the manufacturers state that the coolant and spark plugs do not need to be changed for 100,000 miles, I would not entirely trust that statement.

      With today's driving requirements for most vehicles, in particular if you live in the city with stop and go traffic, it would be more prudent to follow my suggestion to change those parts out annually.

      Keep that oil changed and at the proper level. This includes the filter too. The oil is the life-blood of your engine. More damage is caused by a failure to change the oil than you realize. the rule of thumb is every 3000 miles or 90 days, whichever occurs first.

      Here is an easy way to keep track of it. Most folks have a calendar at home. Mark OIL CHANGE 90 days from your last one. That way when you flip to that month, you know its coming up and you need to get the appointment made, or get the parts.

      Oil changes are something that are fairly simple, and most folks can do this on their own with minimal tools and training. Top quality filters like Fram, Wix, Purolator, will have a brief set of tightening instructions on their packaging.

      Keeping your car serviced is very important, this includes washing, waxing rotating the tires, being sure the air pressure is correct in them, regularly inspecting your lights, and taking a peek in your engine compartment while the engine is running for any leaks or broken parts.

      This includes having a look at the battery terminals for corrosion and cleaning that material off. If you have corrosion on those terminals, that means the electricity is having a hard time doing its job. This can be a cause for the car being hard to start, or not starting at all.

      A small battery teminal brush will do the job here and keep things clean. There is a product by Permatex called Battery Terminal Protector. It is a red sticky material. After cleaning the terminals, replacing the battery cables, and properly tightening them this product is sprayed into the terminals. This product will coat the terminals and weather proof them to keep water and corrosion away. You will also find on the market these little felt rings that are sold. I reccommend against using those. They contain a penetrating oil that seeps up the terminals. I have encoutered many charging system related problems due to those little felt rings, including the oil actually insulating the terminals from a good connection with the cables.

      Driving habits are a big factor in the longevity of your vehicle too. The harder you drive the car, the shorter the lifespan will be. The same is said for neglect of care.

      Do not use dishwashing detergent to wash your car. Its designed for dishes, not cars. Your local Auto Parts Store will have a large selection of "Car Wash Soap" available for you. Personally, I choose the type that washes and waxes at the same time. Blue Coral , Kit, Turtle Wax, Meguires, Eagle One, and Rain-X are just a few that are available. These products help keep the paint in excellent condition, and help protect it from the Sun and Rain. Dishwashing Detergent is designed to strip oil and grease from the surface of dishes, and will actually harm the paint on your car over time.

      Wax the car annually, or have a detail shop do this for you. That is what I do with my vehicles on a bi-annual regimine. I normally do not have the time to wax the cars that I own, so I located a reputable detail shop in my area and I schedule with them twice a year. Once in the spring and then again in the fall. This protects the car all summer, and in the winter.

      Keep the paint chips repaired too. This may sound like a very trivial point, but over the life of your car, the chips can develop rust under them and cause more damage. Again, I normally have the detail shop do this twice a year, and that normally does the job.

      Above all else, if you can keep the car covered, (Car Port, Garadge, or Car Cover), this will drastically reduce paint fade, scratches, and the "Wash Me" idiots from making a mess out of that expensive piece of hardware.

      As for the interior, regular vacuum sessions, and dusting with an interior cleaner, such as: Armor All, or Finish 2000 will do the job nicely. I prefer to use the Low Gloss formula to keep the glare on the dash surface to a minimum.

      Regular Windex for the windows, (interior and exterior), plastic polish for the light lenses, (tail-lights), Meguires Mirror Glaze works good for that. No-Touch Tire Black, to keep the tire sidewalls looking nice.

      Most of my vehicles , even at 100,000 miles you would never guess that I had that type of milage on them when you look at them from the exterior or through the windows. The holes in the upholstry even get repaired when they occur. As for the carpets, well there are several cleaners that are out there, but if I spill something I normally try to re-saturate the area with clear water, and soak it up with a large beach towel, then use talcum powder to force the liquid out. Let it dry then, vacuum it up using a soft bristle brush. If you have black interior, powdered charcoal will do the same. Just keep brushing, and vacuuming that area until all of it is picked up. A white terry cloth rag will give you the "green light" when you have all of the powdered charcoal removed.

      Keep the locks and hinges lubricated. Lock Ease is a product that is available, and the hinges can be lubricated with Tri-Flow. WD-40 can be used in a pinch, but this product is more for loosening rusted nuts and bolts, and will wash away after a few passes through the car wash.

      Well I think that about covers it. I hope these suggestions help you out. Remember, not all of these things have to be done at the same time, this is merely a suggestion list.

      Enjoy your new car!

    How can I make my foundation last longer?
    I currently use CoverGirl pressed powder foundation and it comes off after about two hours!! How can I make it last longer, and what is a good foundation (preferably a creamy, natural looking one) that will stay on all day? Preferably under and is found at most drugstores. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Laurie,
      First start by making sure that the surface is in the best possible condition to receive the makeup...kind of like painting a wall...you don't want to paint over grease and debris on the wall...right?
      Cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize (if you need extra).
      My choice would be a light foundation/tint like Wet N Wild tinted moisturizer (around .99) and finish with a mineral powder for additional coverage and/or a more matte finish.

      Good Luck!!
