  • When would you say is the earliest we'll get a vaccine?

    For COVID-19 I mean, and then hopefully everything will go back to normal.

  • How does BMR factor in to how much physical activity you do (weight gain/weight loss)?

    Ok so I'm currently unemployed, and currently have a sedentary lifestyle because of the pandemic, and because of the recent heatwave in the UK, I've been looking for jobs and hoping to get one, but the dream job of mine is to become a horse riding instructor which I know is a fairly active job. On an average day I consume around 2000 calories, my BMR is around 1500, but your BMR increases with activity right? Most of the jobs I've applied for, and the one which is the dream/goal that I have, involve a lot of being on your feet for a lot of the day, and so the TDEE increases a lot too, and I don't wanna lose weight unintentionally while working, so can someone tell me how the BMR/TDEE/calorie consumption will work out?

  • What happens if you eat less than your BMR?

    Calories are used to fuel your bodily functions for your BMR right? I've lost a few pounds since lockdown started, but my BMR is around 1500, I do tend to overeat my TDEE sometimes (my TDEE for my current activity level is around 1700-1800), and at times I eat around 1900-2000 or just over 2000, but that can't be too bad hopefully.

  • I always wake up at midday and skip breakfast? It's just my routine, but millions of others do the same right?

    Apparently the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is just a myth? I don't even like most breakfast foods anyway, and I don't want what I eat in the rest of the day to be too same-y (in other words I know you need a variety, I do eat a lot of different balanced things but you know what I mean), and I don't wanna put on weight either. It's never caused me any health problems, but lately I've been worried others do the same? I can't be alone, right?

  • Should I wear my glasses when taking a driving lesson/test?

    I'm short sighted, but the only time I wear my glasses now is if I'm watching TV or playing a video game, I don't wear them other than for that reason because I can see pretty well without them. I'm thinking of learning to drive but I was wondering is it against the law if I wear my glasses one day and then not another day, or do you have to wear them all the time or does it not matter? I'm in the uk and apparently it's a law in some places but not sure about here?

  • Should I feel ashamed of myself?

    I'm 27, still live at home with my mother, on ESA (employment support allowance), because I am unable to work due to having autism combined with clinical depression and anxiety, and while part of me wants to say it's not my fault, another part of me feels ashamed of myself sometimes. I feel like if I did ever start work I would have to do it in baby steps as diving in all at once would be too much. I just can't seem to stop comparing myself to other people, but would you say it's not my fault, because I'm not lazy, I'm not a scrounger or sponge off the benefits, I don't deliberately choose not to work, even though I still live at home I am fairly dependent, like I do my own food shopping, cooking, cleaning, help my mother out around all the time and that kinda thing

    I do have some ambitions for the future but even then there's no telling how or if I'm gonna cope with them, guess we'll have to wait and see at the time, gonna be a long way off yet, I know you can reclaim ESA if you leave a job due to depression/anxiety or some other mental illness so that's why me going to work needs to be in baby steps as if I ever have to reapply for it then I wouldn't want the benefit office to get the wrong idea. But yeah, there's my question. Honest opinions?

  • Why is Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses actually nicknamed "Del"?

    Is it just a nickname for Derek or did he get it from somewhere?

  • iPhone charger suddenly stopped working?

    I got the cable with the iPhone (iPhone 11) for Christmas Day last year, it's still perfectly intact and not damaged at all and it just suddenly stopped working. I've ordered a pack of new ones off of eBay, but should I try to clean the charging port with a paper clip or something before Monday to see if that makes a difference? I can't do a force restart because the battery is flat and won't charge, and I tried to do one before it died anyway and it wouldn't work?

  • ESA question?

    Ok so right now I'm on ESA because I struggle with work, however I do have some ambitions for the future but once I reach that goal then it might involve me having to work full time (I can't work full time now as I wouldn't be able to cope due to mental health conditions and disabilities that I have), I was wondering if I did ever go full time working and then later on down the line found that it was too stressful and went back to working part time (16 hours or less a week), then would I have to reapply for ESA, as I know it gets discontinued if you work over 16 hours per week.

  • What's the point of moving out and renting someone else's property if you can still live with your parents?

    I've recently turned 27 and been quite stressed lately because it seems everyone else my age is moving out, but house prices are ridiculous round where I live so I guess some people rent? I still live with my mother but I pay rent every week and help out around the house as much as I can and am trying to find work, but if you can still live with your parents (including after they die and you inherit their house which is what I'll do if I haven't got my own place before my mother passes), then what's the point of renting someone else's property?

  • Asperger's and workplace?

    I’ve been quite worried lately because I’ve never been able to find paid work, I have been offered interviews but then none of them get back to me, and I have done some voluntary work but that didn’t work out because of a problem with the girls I was working with. I do have some future goals, as I rode riding school horses every week and want to build myself up to maybe getting a voluntary job there one day, and then maybe getting qualifications to have paid work there one day too. That’s been a goal of mine for a while now, and once lockdown has cleared up a bit I’m hoping to maybe either find some voluntary work in a charity shop, or find some paid work in a small shop where it doesn’t get too busy, and go back to working towards some of my goals. However if some places are too busy then I think maybe I don’t think I’d be able to cope (I would still try them first of course though) and I still do struggle with change, and eye contact, and socialising with some people, so I don’t know what impact a busy environment would do for me, but if it turns out that I can’t cope at least I can say that I’ve tried right? But I feel really useless sometimes because I’m 27 and I do have aspie friends who are well ahead of me in life, like some went to university, got degrees, and now work full time, and I feel awful compared to them because I can’t be like that Because of the issues that I have, and the possibility in future of me finding some jobs too tough to cope with.

  • Am I too old to listen to Ariana Grande and go to her concerts?

    I'm 27, female, I've become a big fan of Ariana over the recent years, and last year my mother and myself went to her Sweetener World Tour concert and we both really enjoyed it. I know her concerts are mostly attended by children and teenagers but yeah, we both really loved it and will  probably be seeing her again, but I've become quite self conscious about it but still try not to care what people think, as I don't wanna grow up really lol (as the Walt Disney quote goes, "growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional").

    Also, what about concert meet and greets? Do you guys think you're ever too old for them? Thanks.

  •  When will a coronavirus vaccine be ready?

    In your opinions, of course. I don't like seeing places closed and seeing people social distancing, every time I see photos and articles on them I just think I can't wait until there's a cure so things can go back to normal and the lockdown can be lifted and people can all start just enjoying themselves again?

  • Can you be against animal cruelty and still eat meat?

    So I've eaten meat all my life, I've been thinking about going vegan lately but I don't think I could be able to stick to it as it's such a big change, and most of my current dietary foods come from animal products, but I always thought before I was against animal cruelty, I don't feel like I want to support it because I would feel like a really crappy person, I don't like seeing animals being abandoned, or forced to work or perform for people, and I could never wear makeup that has animal products or used animal testing, and I could never ever wear real animal furs or skins, and I never really thought about it deeply before because I've always been this way, and I could never watch a video of an animal in a slaughterhouse.

  • Do you think it's too early for schools etc to reopen?

    So I live in the uk and our prime minister Boris Johnson recently said that schools will start opening on 1st June and other non-essential shops will start reopening on June 15th. I reckon this is far too early and the death rate will skyrocket. What do you guys think?

  • Can someone explain this to me?

    So to lose weight you need to burn around 500 calories a day or more, but how are you supposed to do that? I know you burn calories all day long doing whatever but surely some of the calories burning has to do with exercise in this case? I like walking, horse riding and swimming, but there’s no way I could burn 500 calories in just one session? Does the rest of the calories burned come from your metabolism speeding up or what?
