Lately I have been trying to walk faster to burn more calories but I can't seem to walk much because I start to feel extremely tired right away. I can't even jog because I immediately run out of breath. I want to change this, however. Any advice on how I can become a better walker/jogger and not get tired so easily? I exercise 5 times a week for 30 minutes, 3 times a day.

    I have a 20 year old daughter that is EXTREMELY sensitive. She seems to cry about almost everything. Like one day when she was in high school, she asked one of her teachers to give her the notes she missed a day she was absent and the teacher said no because she wasn't allowed to. She came home crying and told me she was worried she would fail her class for getting behind. Another example is when one of her classmates interrupted her mid sentence and walked away from her. She told me she started crying as soon as her classmate turned around because she felt ignored. After this, my daughter decided to avoid her and not talk to her again. One last example is when I was taking out the trash and she asked me a question but I kind of yelled at her saying that I was busy and that I didn't want to talk at the moment. She went to her room crying. My daughter suffers from social anxiety and depression and she has always have a hard time with rejection. When she was little she would get extremely bullied and rejected by her classmates and teachers even. What makes me sad is that I don't have the money to pay her a psychologist or get her professional help. How can I help her stop being overly sensitive?

    Today I removed an ingrown toenail I had at home. I opened up the side of my big toe and I removed a big chunk of it. This made me feel a lot of relief on the side of my toe. However, I also noticed that I still had a lot of pain on the tip of my toe. It is literally on the tip and on the corner of my toe. Every time I press on it I feel extrutiating pain. I was thinking about using an exacto knife to cut where it hurts and see if it relived the pain but I was too scared to do it because of the pain. Could this pain I feel be an I grown toenail on the tip of my toe or could it be something else? I already removed the ingrown nail from the side of my toe so I don’t see how I could have one on the tip. Honestly going to a foot doctor is not a possibility for me since the removal would cost me $800 and I don’t have insurance nor the money to afford a doctor. This is why I had to do the surgery myself.

At first I was very scared to talk to her because she looked very mean but she decided to help me. The next day I saw her in the bathroom and She aproached me and started having a conversation with me and I found this very weird because with her friends she seemed to talk very disrespectfully but with me she talked very fancy and formal. After this we started to hang out a lot and one day I told her I was beginning to have problems with some bullies and with some teachers. She told me she was going to protect me from them and led me to some secret places where I could hide from them. She showed me a tiny secret room in the bathroom, a secret passage in our school movie theater (Yes, I dreamt that the campus had a huge movie theater), and some others that I can't remember. For the next few days I would hide in these and sometimes my new friend would come to hang out with me. One day however she stopped hanging out with me and I wondered why. I checked my text messages and I read a message she sent me where she said that she was lesbian and she had a crush on me. I texted her back saying I was sorry but that I was straight and I could only see her as a friend. She didnt get mad but she did become very sad and isolated and after this I didn't see her as often as before. Later I woke up.

    I've never believed in ghosts and other paranormal phenomena stuff but lately I have read and even experienced things that make me wonder if these called "shadow people" are real. Lately I have read stories about these people and how you can encounter them if you astral project, if you lucid dream, etc. And I remember having a few experiences with these shadows but I don't know if they were actually real, if they were dreams, or if they were just product of my imagination. I remember that when I was little I saw a large shadow standing by my bathroom door. I even remember he talked to me...was quite friendly! He asked me some personal questions and we had a nice conversation but I started to get scared and I ran out of my room to my front yard outside my house. I looked through the window and I saw the large shadow moving towards the front door. I remember blacking out after this and waking up in my bed again and when I asked my aunt what had happened to me she said nothing. This is when I was 4 years old but a few years ago when I was about 16 I believe I saw another shadow person. I was exiting my room and as soon as I opened the door I saw what seemed to be a shadow running across from me as if he didn't want to be seen by me. The shadow seemed to be a very short man and was wearing a hat and seemed to know how to leap because I saw him leaping into my dad's bedroom but I never saw it again. These are the only experiences I remember having....

    Last night I had one of the most horrific dreams I've ever had. It started with me being in my bedroom and looking up something to watch on YouTube. I decided to look up one of those Top 10 videos. Suddenly, I get pulled into the computer and I start seeing some really horrible things. A dead body, the actual murder of a person, the devil up on my ceiling looking at me, people suffering from spontaneous human combustion, among others. It's like I was stuck in a horror video that I couldn't get out of. While I was seeing those awful things, I kept hearing the word "Macabre" and the sentence "The most macabre things to ever happen." The image I remember seeing the most was a deformed man (quite demonic looking) entering a house and pointing at a woman holding 2 babies in her arms. The woman was against the wall crying and screaming. Suddenly the deformed man looks straight at me and tries to approach me stopping midway and turning around. The man then grabs both of the woman's children and runs away with them holding them upside down. I back away and the woman starts to scream historically that the man is going to sell her children's souls to the devil himself. After she yells this, I wake up. The dream felt pretty real. What does this dream mean?! I didn't watch anything bad or horrific before going to bed so I don't understand why I had this dream. Any ideas??

    I have depression and social anxiety, I cannot afford psychological help, and my parents don't understand this mental illness. Second, I have no friends and family members. I lost my best friend years ago because I couldn't afford to travel to see her. The only family I have live far away so I never see them. Third, my family and I are facing financial issues. My mom works 3 jobs everyday, barely sleeps, and is even losing her memory because of this. My dad works 1 job but he is extremely negative about his life and our situation. He always complains about everything. Fourth, my mom's siblings and friends make fun of me all the time just because I don't fit into their "perfect" family. They are skinny while I am chubby, they have colored eyes while I have brown eyes. They have straight hair while I have frizzy curly hair, they don't wear glasses while I do. They are all atheletes while I'm more into theater and dancing and writing stories (Even though I can't afford to do these things) but that's something they find very lame and useless. They always critizicze me because I don't want to have kids, because I've never had a boyfriend, because I haven't had my first kiss, because I want to become a teacher while their children and my brother want to become doctors and lawyers and business people. I'm 20 and I know I have a life ahead of me but I don't see the point of living it if my whole life I'm going to be criticized and rejected.

    I want to lose weight but I'm scared that I won't be able to make it due to the fact that I spend most of the day seated and being unable to move. First, I go to school from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM. In all of my classes I sit down and listen to my teachers talk. On my break, I go out on walks but I'm only able to walk around the school for 30 minutes. After school I go to my job. I am involved in customer service and this requires me to sit behind a desk for 4 hours straight with only a 15 minute break in between. After my job, I go to the gym, where I spend 1 hour exercising (Running on threadmill, stairs, or sometimes ab workouts) And when I get home I immediately sit, do homework, and study. This takes me 3 to 4 hours. When I have free time I like to sit at my computer desk and play games or sit on the couch and watch TV. So far, I have been eating 3 meals a day with a small snack in between. I know eating healthy is the most important thing to lose weight but can I still do it even though I don't exercise much and I spend most of my day seated?

However, about 2 weeks ago I started to feel pain in my toe again and today I woke up with an unbearable pain. I thought maybe my nail grew again for some reason and I checked but the side of my toe/nail is still cauterized, my nail hasn't grown, and I'm not able to remove the cauterization to check inside so I don't see how it can be another ingrown nail since I had it cauterized...What I did notice is that my nail is a little bit red but I don't see any puss or anything. What could be causing this pain?

She is always licking and scratching herself and can't sleep sometimes due to this. She doesn't seem to be in pain, she's just very annoyed about the fleas. When I give her a bath I use this flea remover shampoo called ADAMS and I also use the ADAMS flea and tick remover spray. It helps a lot when it comes to getting rid of fleas but I still can't get rid of the eggs and the scabs. Sometimes I use my own hand and I try to remove the eggs but I know its a lot of pain for my cat so I don't want to do that anymore. If there are some things you should know is that I CANNOT afford taking her to the vet, so that is not an option for me, she is an outdoor cat, she is 10 years old, and she doesn't have allergies or any other disease.
