Re: Confessional Thread - A black hole of emu

Confession: I've never forgiven my mother for bitching about having to stay home for a week to look after me when my crazy ex did this to me (spoilered for size): DSCN1093.JPG And this photo was taken when I was loads better. You don't have to see the weird green, brown and yellow pus variations see...

Re: Woman thread - Is it as good for you as it is for me?

GOD DAMN IT, sometimes I really hate some of these damn doctors. :evil: Yesterday I went to my usual GP, and he said that he'd like to re-do the pap test because it wasn't at an ideal point in my cycle (PCOS- we never know where in my cycle I am until I start bleeding), but I was running late, so I ...

Re: sets, trilogies, series of books that dont get worse

I actually quite enjoyed The Black Jewels trilogy by Anne Bishop. It didn't get any worse, and her other books were pretty close in awesomeness.

Re: The English Language is Disappearing

"It's only a dead language if no one speaks it."

Everyone I know who studies Latin is completely obsessed with it. We try to have conversations, but, sadly, our vocabulary is somewhat limited to wars and Rome being saved by sacred geese.

Re: Woman thread - Is it as good for you as it is for me?

I guess we all do it for different reasons. I used to wear make up every day, even just to school and work, but my reasoning behind it was that I wasn't attractive enough, and so I "needed" it. I still do the whole ritual of face cleansing and moisturising, but that's more of an issue of c...

Re: Woman thread - Is it as good for you as it is for me?

To me, the pap test hurts, but it hurts for roughly one full second, and that's it. It's rather like, "HOLY OW ...nevermind." Take a couple of advil before you go and you'll be fine. also, if Shark Week is very irregular, that could be an indication that you SHOULD go on the pill, to keep...

Re: Woman thread - Is it as good for you as it is for me?

I'm going to get my first pap-test tomorrow. Not so sure how to feel about it. None of my friends have gotten it done, even though most of them have been having sex for years. The only thing I've heard is that it hurts. Any ideas on how to minimise the ouch? I just hope I'll have the prescence of mi...

Re: Confessional Thread - A black hole of emo

Thanks, everyone. Concern is really sweet. The problem with the advice is my mother. She's flat out refusing to let me take my meds or see my psychologist. If I'm a little depressed, she'll offer to cut off my arm. Things being like this with her, even if I found the money or got a chance to go by m...

Re: Confessional Thread - A black hole of emo

Confession: I'm not so sure who I am. To understand this, I need to give a bit of context. Within a year of entering high school, I got really, really depressed. It happened slowly, so I barely noticed it at all. I just started eating less, talking on the phone less and began avoiding people. I woul...

Re: Antidepressants, Neuroleptics, and Amphetamines

In my opinion, anti-depressants can be very important. A couple of years ago, when I was at my lowest, I kept trying to kill myself, I wouldn't go on the meds, and I just didn't want to keep going. After a few months of being forced to take them, I started to think maybe there is a point to living, ...

Re: Girl Thread: The first rule of PMS - Only talk about chunks

I've been having a problem with tampons lately. I've been using them for a couple of years now, but I stopped about 6 months ago, and now I don't seem to be able to anymore. Even those tiny little ones with the "silk-ease covers" and all that, I just don't seem to be able to get them in! I...

Re: Strange or even mildly amusing things about your body

I have an "x"-shaped scar on my upper lip as a result of being dropped on my face when I was 14. The same incident left me with a hypertrophic scar just under my right nostril, a sun-shaped (as in a circle with rays) scar next to my right eye and having 2 of my teeth knocked out. My dentis...

Re: Rising voice inflection to indicate a question

I'm a little confused about this Russian thing. I've been speaking it since I was two, and to my knowledge we use rising inflections too. Such as: ti ne hoch esh ? (don't you want?). And its similar when just using 'hungry': golod ni ? And I've only ever noticed falling inflections in statements. Th...
