    It's only the very top of my leg. It's like my nerves are being pinched or something and it only happens while I'm riding my bicycle . Not even for that long either. Getting off of the bike makes it worse but then it fades away. My boyfriend thought it was the seat was set too low. He raised it and the pain was barely noticeable. I was able to ride just fine that day but then it came back again and I think it's getting worse. It doesn't make my legs sore at all just creates that darn sharp pain that won't go away until I stop and stretch it out. But I don't want to have to stop every 10 minutes or so just to stretch. Is there any way to make this stop all together? If this helps I'm 5'7 and my bike is a cruiser 26"

  • Is there anyway to help my mom understand that blasting the computer volume is getting very annoying and rude?

    I get it. It's her house and she should do what she wants. But this is getting a bit extreme. She'll be on YouTube for hours and then the second anyone passes by her she's blasts up the volume because she thinks anything she watches is so good that EVERYONE has to watch/hear it. She'll even replay everything and make my dad wake up after just coming back from work just so he can watch it to even though she had just blasted it so loud that it woke him up and he heard every video she played. But she doesn't care she wants him to watch it all with her anyways and then laughs at all the videos like each time is the first time she's watching it. Even going as far as putting guilt on us if we get annoyed at her for forcing us to rewatch everything. I almost can't watch any new episodes of my favorite shows either. I'll put it on tv excited to see what happens next and then my mom decides that she has to go on Facebook and BLAST UP CANDY CRUSH! It's so loud that I can't even hear the tv! I shouldn't even have to tell her how rude that is! If this is punnishment for something we did as kids I wouldn't know because she would just be like "Hmm?" And continue on with doing whatever she's doing on the internet as loudly as possible. You have no idea how many times she's woken me up just to make me watch something like a puppy playing with a ball or a baby talking funny. If we did that to her she would yell about how she can't go back to sleep because of us. Any advice?

  • Why would a parent do this to their child?

    I used to have a friend (21)who is in bad living conditions. It's just him and his mother who is jobless (he has a job now). At first it seemed ok but then I noticed that they hate their family. Apparently spreading rumors like the mother is going to bars to pick up guys, she does drugs and steals. And everytime she either gets pissed off or cries about how bad they treat her. Later I found out that she does do weed. And when she got caught she cried about her mother not believing that it wasn't weed. She went to bars almost every week saying she's a grown up she can do whatever she wants. And then she would sometimes go to the casino for a few days to gamble even though she barely has money. The more I paid attention to her the more it seemed like she would do something bad, cry about getting caught and then have her son comfort her and have him lie to others to make it seem like she never did anything wrong so she doesn't get in trouble. Oh yeah and saying things like she would be dead without him. When I finnaly tried to get him to see that his mother isn't as innocent as he thinks he got mad and we never talked again. He could be living a good life, he's nothing like his mother but she is dragging him down and keeping him as some sort of shield from life and consequences. Why would someone do this to their child? What is the reason for putting him through all this and making him think she's an innocent helpless person?

    I want to move out badly I can't stand living with my brothers who have anger issues, a sister who is lazy beyond reason and parents who don't enforce anything and let everything slide while putting all blame on us instead of actually doing anything. I can move out and I should have moved out years ago but never did because of no job and little money. I have been trying for almost a year to find another part time job but haven't heard anything back. My mom doesn't want me to move out unless I can afford my own house but that's not happening I'm not gonna wait my whole life away just to meet up with her expeditions of my life 😡I was going to move out with my bf in another town but he decided to save money by roomating with a friend (none of my friends live nearby anymore). My job only gives me 6-9 hours a week. I don't know when I'll ever find another job. How can I live off of a very low paycheck?

    My sister is 17 and sometimes I don't think she'll make it in the real world. She is taking classes to be a nurse but I don't know if she'll make it in that job really. If someone tells her to do something but someone else isn't doing anything she usually starts an argument about how that's unfair because she "works so hard". Whenever she has to do anything she'll do the bare minimal so she can go back to her phone as fast as possible (when we take the phone away she will just do something else like read a book, listen to music or pet the cats).Ex. Dishes (adds water/soap to the sink and then claims it's done), laundry (once her clothes is all dirty she'll just wear my mom's clothes even though they're too big). If we ask if she can do something she will just say "ok" and never do it (she will either say she didn't hear it or completely ignore us.) When we get upset with her about something she'll just act like we're not even in the same room, just keeps her eyes away from us while shaking her head. She does that whenever we say try to explain why we want her to do these things because she thinks ignoring it will " solve the problem".She has actually gone to bed without eating tons of times because she chose to go to sleep rather than making the family any dinner even if it's as simple as sticking burritos into the microwave ( she's too tired for that). Does this sound like anyone's sister/daughter when they were younger?

It looks like dirt but it never washes away and it's a bit rougher than the rest of the skin on my foot. It doesn't hurt, it's never changed size or shape. It's defiantly not any kind of like or wart because it really does look like my foot is just dirty until you try to scrub it away and it doesn't. Does anyone know what it may be and how to get rid of it? I've tried baby oil to moisturize it but it didn't help it at all.

One would be that I used to dream about driving and either crashing or not being able to control the speed and getting pulled over. When I test drove with my dad a few times I couldn't control the speed. My foot would soften on the pedal and I kept slowing down without realising it. I also kept pushing the break to early so when I was at a stop sign I was way behind than I needed to be and kept having to push on the gas to get closer. I'm also afraid that I'll get distracted while driving and end up crashing. Or I'll forget why I'm even driving and end up who knows where until I realise where I actually need to go to. Is there anything that can help me with that? A type of car that would be better to have? Or would a person like me just be better off the road?

Whoever the father is they should cut his balls off so he can never violate another animal again!" And then when you try to explain that it's not half human and that it's impossible for 2 very different species to have a baby they just say something like "You never know!

    No I'm some dumb 18 year old trying to run off with my boyfriend because I love him so much and want to be with him.It's not like that.I've been having a really hard time finding a job for the past 5 years. It took me 3 years just to get a job at McDonald's but after I got fired a year later it took me 6 months to find another job and that was only because I had family relation with this job. I'm 24 and I can't stand how things are going. I've been wanting to move out for a few years now but I can't because I was either jobless or was hardly making any money. And now it's almost worse because I'm only getting 6-9 hours ( at McDonald's I was at least getting 15-21)! My boyfriend is moving to a bigger town an hour away to save gas since he goes to college. I know once I find a job there I would be able to get more hours and will have a place to stay with him. We already found an apartment and we both liked it. He's even going to start working a 12 hour job at a warehouse just to make sure we have extra money. Problem is my parents don't agree with unmarried couples living together and the town/city we're going to live in isn't always safe (Its only bad if you affiliate with gangs/drugs which we dont). They see the town as the only people who would actually want to go there is if they want to get shot at. But this may be my only chance to start a better life. Plus it'll only be for 2 years until he's done with college then we'll move out to another safer town. What should I do?

I don't like the way things are at home it drives me nuts but I can't say anything about it or my mom will guilt trip me and make me feel bad for anything I say about it. I can't find another job in this town so I'm making less than 200 a week. Moving out to a bigger town will be great for me but my mom doesn't like the idea of 2 unmarried people living together ( idk about my dad). My mom has told me a couple times that I better not even think about living with my boyfriend.I'm 24 they can't really stop me. But a few days ago I was arguing with my brother just before heading to the store with my mom and I told him that he will be happy because I'm moving out. That's when she litteraly blocked me from the door and gave me a look to demand an explanation. She wouldn't budge until I told her that I wasn't actually moving. But that scares me now. What if when I tell her that I'm moving with my boyfriend she gets mad and drags me to my room so I can't escape? She's much stronger than me so it's not impossible for her to do. She doesn't want me to live with my boyfriend because she's afraid that I'll get pregnant and he will end up leaving me and she expects me to just wait at home until I either get married or save enough money to move into my own house. What should I do?

She thinks she's singing but it seriously sounds like someone is saying UUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHH. And it doesn't help that she won't do ANYTHING without having to listen to music! Doing the dishes or cleaning? Turns on the radio. Doing homework? Music. Relaxing? Music. Trying to sleep? Music! And she just HAS to sing to every song she hears! I've tried to tell her nicely "please just stop singing." "Can you just not have the music on right now?" And I've tried to be firm and mean "Stop Singing! It's annoying!" But she just says "Its my body I can do what I want with it." -_- What's the best way to just keep her quiet more often? Should I blast my music and just sing worse than I already do? I've already tried recording her but that does nothing but give me the omg I can't deal with you right now face and if I keep bugging her about it she gets mad and runs to the bathroom to watch herself cry in front of the mirror....idk why she does that.

    I'm 23 but living with my parents. I'm hoping to move out sometime this year. For a long time the house has been dirty enough that if a cop came in when I was young I would have been sent to another home. I used to be lazy when I was younger but I couldn't stand cleaning when my brother with anger issues would just throw everything on the floor or throw things in another room. Because of this my mom gave up cleaning. Instead she just makes a mess, tells us to clean up the house and then goes to sleep. Ive tried to ask her for help but she gets mad saying she's too tired .We did get help from relatives but it never stayed clean. If something gets lost in the house my mom will just buy another. We have so many clothes because people would give us their unwanted clothes and then my mom wouldn't let us throw out our old clothes because " We can wear them in the house". Sometimes they find free stuff and just bring them in the house. It doesnt help that we dont have much storage space for anything. No attic or basement. Even the bathrooms don't have any drawers. My other brother and sister refuse to clean. If they do it's extra slow or they fight over anything so they can stop cleaning. The one with anger issues is a slob. Then gets angry at us for not keeping his things clean. My dad doesn't clean cause he works long hours and it's not his job to clean up. I've tried to keep the house kept up but with everyone making a mess and I'm the only one cleaning I can't keep up at all!

But most times when we ask something like this to my mom she kind of just gives the silent treatment. Acts like she didn't hear what we said. If we wait and keep asking to get an answer she will usually brush us off by saying " I don't know yet!". But what really gets to us is when we decide to make the decision for ourselves. Sometimes if we do go do it she will get mad and say " Why did you go!? I never said you could go! And now you're in trouble!" And sometimes if we decide not to go she will see us still home and be like " Oh I thought you were supposed to go somewhere today?" "I would've been ok with it." The part that hurts us the most is when she gets silent with us and then instead of saying something like " You didn't wash the dishes like I told you for a few days so you're not going." Oh no she will rub it in our faces and be more like " Did you wash the dishes like I told you to? N...O. that spells NO! So are you going to go with you're friends today? N...O! That means NO!" Why!? Why does she do this!!?

When we talk to friends either by the phone or messaging them we usually run out of things to talk about and will either tell them something that happened in the house or what we or someone in the house is doing at that exact moment. And my mom likes to add in something like "Do you have to tell them everything!? Do you also tell them when you scratch your butt?" It's super annoying and I think even rude. We don't really do anything what are we supposed to talk about! I know whenever my mom talks to other people she doesnt usually talk about what's going on at home she just sits there and listens quietly. I can't think of what to say to her to let her know that it's not wrong to talk to others about what we are doing at home and her side comments about it are unnecessary.
