The real saviour born of a stable didn't have a building where people would go to but went to the people and ate with people society regarded as unclean and outcasts. He came to set us free. It's more about a God who loves us as individuals. After all Jesus asks "who do you say I am?". There's religion and then there's a King Jesus who shows us love. I choose Jesus over religion any day.

    Best answer: It is great that you were able to tell someone about it. To feel ashamed is normal, I just hope you don't blame yourself for what happened. You are in a whirlwind at the moment. Be good to yourself. Change your thinking. Don't close the door to loving yourself. I understand you are going through something you are struggling to deal with. I am pleased you have someone that you can turn to. Before the drink becomes too much of a problem, maybe she can help you. Tell her how you feel and you might be able to replace the drink with her support. Be easy on yourself. Don't beat yourself up. Wanting a hug shows your true nature. I hope you realise you haven't lost who you are. There is a way to get through this. I hope you receive what you need in life and don't hide behind drink or anything else. Keep talking and don't hide yourself. I hope you find support and keep with people you trust. The Samaritans might be a good place to start if you want to find a support group. Also, at some point you might want to make a formal report of what happened. It's never too late. Something to think about.

    I understand crying every day. I over-analyse too. It can take a long time, and yet a short time too in some ways. It's not easy being where you are. Is there any way you can take a year out? Is there someone at the college you can talk to? I had problems at Uni and dropped out in year two. I didn't know there was always someone to talk to. After I left I heard I could have had help if only I had asked. It seems bleak right now. I know you want to be happy for your mom. I do the same. I don't let her see me unhappy. It sounds like you are overloading yourself. Listening to the conversation in your head, it might help to stop the words that tell you negative stuff, the thoughts that are not true. It sounds like you have a lot of change to deal with. Also that you feel you have few people to turn to. I think someone at the college might be able to offer you someone to talk to and offload your worries. Sometimes it helps to know that there are others going through the same. Don't beat yourself up. Change the thinking. Remember the things you tell yourself when you are at your best. Think about your events as challenges and becoming a stronger person. Listen to the things your heart wants. Don't beat yourself up. Know you are an amazing person. Focus on the things you are thankful for. I know it takes time. I understand how it feels to not have close friends. It makes me tense to think about it. Think about the ones you love. Look after yourself. Don't overburden yourself. Try meditation(It was helpful to me to change my focus). Give time to yourself to relax. I enjoy relaxing in the bath with a hot flannel over my face.

    Best answer: Hi. It's a big world. I think your education is important. It is at the front of your thoughts. I think staying in Canada might seem like a big step, but once you have taken it you will be happier. I know it might be difficult telling your parents about it. It's something I hope they should understand. Being spoon fed is not allowing you to grow. Be your own person. If you go with the support and understanding of your parents, or even your grandparents, I would hope you can manage the move. To deal with the situation, if your parents are not supportive, and make you feel guilty it would be unfair on you. I hope they are supportive. It's not going to be easy considering that you probably feel close to them, or feel obliged to follow their wishes. Another way to look at it is imagine 5 years from now, after choosing the course of action. If you stayed with your parents, where would you be? Would you be living with regret? However, if you live in Canada, would you be happier that you followed what you wanted. It sounds like you are taking your options seriously. This is good. I hope that you are rewarded well for your final choice. I wish you every success and happiness. Success is sometimes making the brave move. Often it is a difficult choice that is not easy, but rewarding. Be realistic. It's not easy. It is rewarding as you acknowledge in that it gives you better opportunity. Look after yourself today, because another chance may not come. Take what is available today. That's my opinion. Because I don't know you though, I can't comment on how you will deal with life. If life gets difficult make sure that you talk about it. Usually colleges have someone to talk to for guidance or counselling. Always take the help available. Never let life get too much for you. We all need support. Find someone who knows you to give you some real guidance on your choice. Then, ultimately it's your decision. I hope this is some help to you. :)

I was also told by a colleague their partner suffered with the same trouble. It led me to buy Peppermint capsules and also Probiotic capsules, containing healthy bacteria. I only take them when I am really bad. The peppermint capsules I find are amazing. It depends on what your conditon is if they would help. I figured out I was eating the wrong things too. How we eat. How stressed I am. They all contributed to my condition. I eat more vegetable. This is a big help for me. I am not a doctor nor do I have any qualification to assess your condition. I hope I have given you something to think about. Before trying anything seek medical advice from a doctor.

    Best answer: Don't overuse your voice (e.g. no shouting or stressing of the voice). Keep relaxed. Drink plenty of water. Please read the following I found on google search. "Drink up to 8-10 glasses of pure water every day (any caffeinated drink does not count). Water thins your mucus and lubricates your vocal cords like oil lubricates a car engine. Thick mucous causes friction and trauma to vocal cords. More water, less friction, less trauma, better voice. Warm up your voice regularly. Simple warm ups are recommended, especially for auditions and performances (just as runners warm up for a marathon). Better yet, take a classical music approach: do glissandos (descending scales) and staccatos (punctuated breathing exercises) and messadivoce (controlling intensity of volume). Take vocal "naps". Your voice needs a rest, just like you do. So, find quiet time everyday - especially when on tour. Get adequate sleep. Sounds like common sense -- and it is. The more sleep you get, the more you will be awake and have more energy for a show. Do not smoke anything. No finger wagging here, it's just that smoke is an irritant that swells your vocal cords. And a reminder: New York bars are smoke free, so you can play in any venue without the damage of second hand smoke. Use your microphone. There is no need to sing to the back of the room. Let the microphone be loud for you. Using the microphone prevents straining your voice. Have good monitors. You need to hear yourself for vocal feedback. Use a floor monitor or ear monitor to be aware of what you sound like, what the band sounds like. You may be singing louder than you need and straining your voice. Develop good singing technique. Vocal training will not change your style. It will strengthen your voice and allow you to sing longer, louder, more often and without fatigue. Vocal training will help make you a vocal athlete. Develop a speaking voice to go with your singing voice. You speak 99% of the time and sing 1%. A poor speaking voice often leads to vocal strain that will carry into your singing voice. This is true especially on tours, when giving radio and other media interviews. Most importantly, listen to your voice. Like any athlete, you will be the first to know when trouble is starting. If you voice hurts, back off. Change your set. Chose songs you can sing without straining your voice. By Michael J. Pitman, MD, New Director, Center for Voice and Swallowing New York Eye and Ear Infirmary Second Ave. at 14th St. New York, NY 10003 United States"

    All skins are different, and you might find that a different cream might be more helpful. It might be you find there is another product to help. Unfortunately, I don't know much about acne creams. I had acne, but I used hot water to remedy, rather than creams. Could you avoid the acne cream? Trying a moisturising cream more for sensitive skins might help. My Mum used to occasionally clean my skin with some cleanser that contained distilled witch hazel (it worked really well). In brief: Consider changing or stopping the acne cream treatment. Think about how regularly you should wash your face. Shield your face from harsh cold winds. Use moisturising cream for delicate skin (e.g. E45) Drink plenty of water. I think washing more frequently helped me. As soon as I would get home from college I would get a flannel and run the hot tap, having the water as hot as I could manage (possibly too hot to be honest) -my hands would go red and the water would be steaming. I would wash my face a couple of times and hold the flannel over my face. I enjoyed long showers so the bathroom would be full of steam. Whenever I had the chance I used to sit in sunlight. However, it sounds like your skin is more sensitive. I am not an expert or have no knowledge of looking after skin. If in doubt seek help from your pharmacist or skin professional. Please note: I do not have sensitive skin. Hot water might not be helpful. %

    I don't believe anyone owns the stars. How could they possibly be sold. You could make up your own certificate of ownership. Or search star names and find an appropriate one for her. Make something unique, and let her know you thought about her. Include with it something else to make it more of a gift.

    Best answer: The reason I answer this is because I know how it feels to experience that feeling of being alone, having no one who really seems to be there for me. It's a struggle. I have put many ideas through my head as to why some people are the way they are with me, and sometimes it's just that I haven't noticed what is really occurring. It was said to me before, "there is nothing as queer as folk." -meaning people say things often they don't mean. So, when I hear someone has said something it is sometimes not what they would have said to my face because it was said in frustration. That aside, my reason for living, although much has gone wrong, and lost, I know that I am becoming a better person, learning to keep my love alive. Perhaps the part of me that wants to die, is only those parts of me that are bad. It is the things of darkness that call me to death. It is the beauty of love that calls me to live. I will not die for any wrong I have done, because that is what it would have me do. I will allow my failings to fall away from me and die. I will learn to love myself with happiness. If I were not here, I would no longer be able to have a positive impact on the people I meet. I would be lost. I would be a memory of one who gave away potential. I will live through the times of hardness, and endure. I will feel my sadness, because it will make me stronger. I will have tears, and feel better sometimes for having them. I will turn my thoughts into good thoughts. I will master my thoughts and stand stronger. In this life we can learn to control our thoughts. I realised that I had a story in my mind, where I was telling myself the same story, and those thoughts were not true. I had a note book to record my negative thoughts. I would challenge them, and ask myself if they were true. I realised they were not. I also kept a gratitude book. This book was my help. I was thankful for so much. I realised I had become unaware of basic things in life I should be thankful for. I now look to be generous to people. There are so many people we can help out there. Each small act makes a difference I believe. Without giving away so much it leaves nothing for ourself. We need to be happy and good inside before we can help another. So much time and effort goes into appearance sometimes. People don't stop to think about the inside. Our thoughts, our self-talk. Think about the now, the power we have to be at peace. I enjoyed listening to songs about hurt and about strength. I enjoyed listening to talks on the moment of now, because now is what is real -the past has gone. The now makes the future. Youtube had some good meditations. I enjoyed the bible. I enjoyed reading what God has for me. What hope His call holds for us. How He wants us to be encouraged. I hope some of this helps.

    He is very protective of you and doesn't want you to get hurt. He has heard the talk of many men and their brag of their actions with women. Sometimes they think things they choose not to say to their partners. I hear things I would rather not with people whom I have worked with in the past. It's difficult to trust when sometimes the ones we trust most let us down. So, when we first set out dating we sometimes have a naivety about who the person is and trust their charming words. It's easy to slip into a fantasy world where we want to believe the person is everything they say they are, and more. If your Dad knows that you are aware of how some men are, that you are not naive, that might be a little help for him. Dad's always worry. He bases his fears on what he has experienced and seen happen. I just hope you meet someone who cares for you and not someone who thinks what they might get from you.

    Best answer: Hi. It sounds like she is going through stress and the words in her head are not settled. I hope you realise that she has is going through something of her own. You are unfortunately in the firing line perhaps because there is no one else around at the time. It sounds like she really loves you but hasn't found a way to deal with her issues. I hope soon you find a way to find your own space to be away from the tension. It doesn't mean that you don't love someone when you find your own space. I wish there was some way to resolve things with immediate results. It's probably not going to get easier for you in the immediate days ahead. I hope that by your sharing the situation that you find some relief. Sometimes talking about a problem makes it easier to deal with. I understand it's probably something you can't talk to your Mom about though. Counselling might be helpful to you for emotional support. I hope your Mom finds help. Find someone you can trust to share your feelings with and I hope you will feel better for it. Don't accept a situation that you can no longer handle if it gets too much for you. There is always help. If you need to get out of the situation you might talk to someone at your school/college. There is usually some support there. I hope you find a gift of perseverance or a way to get out of the situation. Once you find someone to talk to about the situation it will hopefully seem a lot less difficult for you. We all need someone to talk to. I hope you can see the possibility of a different and better situation for you, where the air is light and happiness and love surround you.

    Best answer: I found personally that reading about cognitive behaviour, or NLP helped. More importantly, time for meditation. To relax. To listen to myself thinking and stop being so stupid or hard on myself. I listened recently to Paul McKenna, talking about confidence. Most of his works have helped me calm. On Youtube I found a video about living in the now, being in the now. I forget who by, but I found it relaxing and helpful. Remembering to breathe. Sometimes when we stress we tense up and hold our breathe. Taking in air and focussing on our breathing can be a help. There is a page on NHS website (link below) where you can answer questions and it will advise really well if you could be depressed. There is a contact number for help. I have included links to other websites that help with depression. I personally find the samaritans good to listen. I was also referred to Mind by my GP. I learned how to notice stress in my body. I learned how to relax. Deep meditation was great. I hope you find something helpful here. I have included a link to a video about stress. The first is by Eckhart Tolle.

By those who love her she is readily seen, and found by those who look for her. Quick to anticipate those who desire her, she makes herself known to them. Watch for her early and you will have no trouble; you will find her sitting at your gates. Even to think about her is an understanding fully grown; be on the alert for her and anxiety will quickly leave you. She herself walks about looking for those who are worthy of her and graciously shows herself to them as they go, in every thought of theirs coming to meet them". Book of Wisdom. 6:12-16. In a nutshell, how we think helps how we deal with things. Best of luck.
