LOL I was bulimic when I was younger but have heard that the symptoms don't usually present at this age. That the odds of it being bulimia or something else, the something else has far bigger odds. Any ideas?

  • Can Attachment Disorder be corrected in adults?

    I was raised by people who did not believe in touching. If someone hugs you, ask what they want. Also no words of affection. To say I love you shows weakness. To my people, YES, every man is an island. We are all separate. They once warned me about turning my baby gay by kissing her. If I was caught hugging someone, I was ridiculed as needy or... show more
    I was raised by people who did not believe in touching. If someone hugs you, ask what they want. Also no words of affection. To say I love you shows weakness. To my people, YES, every man is an island. We are all separate. They once warned me about turning my baby gay by kissing her. If I was caught hugging someone, I was ridiculed as needy or weak. I have seen a therapist almost constantly since 1972 and recently lost my insurance for mental health. Well, around here, NO body takes Medicare or state. Which is funny since everyone talks about depression in seniors. What can I do? I am 60 and outside of my mate (My if I'm touching I have to be sleeping with theory), I have no one. I never bonded with my baby 40 years ago, I feel, because after her birth I didn't see her for 12 hours. My neighbor is "gramma" to every stray kid around and I tell her the parents saw her coming. All they want is FREE babysitting!! who would volunteer for that? There are day care centers. Also foster homes. Why would anyone take in a grandchild or niece? Isn't that what the foster system is for? Someone help me figure some of this out! I hugged someone at a NYE party once, she stole my wallet. Still think hugging is good for you?

  • We live in TN. I have been hunting on land my daughter is renting.?

    The landowner knows nothing about this. I am not clear where her property lines are, she kind of told me where they were but there is no fence. Should I carry a note from my daughter? If I get a deer, I have to report it (I have a valid license) but it should be cool, right?

  • Why does the government give away free money?

    The government is always saying how bankrupt it is. Could it be that they are giving away money better used for other things? Example: a single man who has 2 teen granddaughters living with him.

    The government is always saying how bankrupt it is. Could it be that they are giving away money better used for other things? Example: a single man who has 2 teen granddaughters living with him. He doesn t have custody and in fact, others are receiving child support for them. They just stay with him. He works full time and has had $2500 deducted for taxes over the year. He sees his accountant and files taxes. He claims the 2 teens. He receives a check for in refund for $9000 even tho he personally only paid in $2500. That is $3500 directly from the government. Now before you say Child Care, think. Daycare centers don t take kids over 12. And what 16 year olds do you know who go to day care. In fact, one of the teens worked 20 hours a week but checked the box on the W-4 saying he was exempt from with holding because someone else was claiming him on their taxes. Explain how the government expects NOT to lose money?

Something about Obama gives you money just for having kids. "It is not dependent on working" as an accountant told me. This could be why the government is bankrupt? Handing out money just for having kids? Sounds like one payment welfare to me. One friend gets $12000 a year without the hassle of working! Help me understand!

  • A friend told me of a job he was getting with a High School diploma that pays $48K a year. Is it real?

    J was staying with elderly W. Suddenly, he was bragging up this job where J continued living with W but earned money from the government (or so he said). They had a falling out and both moved separately. Then W gets a call from this "agency" asking if J still wants the job. Well, J's sister was there and jumped in and said, "No,... show more
    J was staying with elderly W. Suddenly, he was bragging up this job where J continued living with W but earned money from the government (or so he said). They had a falling out and both moved separately. Then W gets a call from this "agency" asking if J still wants the job. Well, J's sister was there and jumped in and said, "No, he doesn't want it but I do!!" So she was scheduled for this mythical job. Then she was told that because her young son is on disability for ADHD, she had to earn less than $35K a year. So she agreed to do it for $32K a year. But she ended up turning it down because she doesn't like the family members where W is living. So why don't the people he's living with apply for this money? Has anyone ever heard of watching a relative for $48K? I mean, my mate works a full week night shift for $32K a year. If this is real (and some how I doubt it because no one ever got any money) then why don't we all get the money for watching gramma? I'm only asking because maybe I am old and dumb. Should I have a grandchild move in to cash in? The myth has been round and round in our family. Every couple of years, someone is going to clean up watching W but no one ever does.....

  • Will it hurt to do without my Lorazapam for a few days?

    My doc and my pharmacy routinely play Mano y Mano over my Lorazapam. Every two months, like clockwork, I phone in my refills. If I need more the pharmacy faxes the doc. I go to pick up the pills and they tell me how he hasn't faxed back their request and they have called him. Then they call while I wait. Nothing. I go home and call the doc. His offices always says he faxed it over "days ago". Call pharmacy, they have no record but have him call them. I call the doc back and she says she will call "right now". One time, it was last Thanksgiving weekend on Wednesday. The pharmacy was closing early and the doc wasn't even in the office. I called and happened to get one of his staff who had stopped in because she forgot something in her desk. She only answered the phone "out of habit". I asked her flat out what to expect over the holidays with out it. She sounded alarmed and somehow got the refill to the pharmacy. Then I had to drive 30 min back to town to get the meds and got there as they were leaving but I convinced one of them to go back in for it. (The cash register had been cleared so no debit but I found some quarters in my car and over paid by a nickel but told them to just keep it) This med is for anxiety. Why should it make me so anxious just trying to get it? I ask this as I enter another weekend with out them. The doc takes a couple of weeks off every month, let's see if anyone is there Monday...(He's the only local doc that takes my insurance)

  • Why do you have to burn your Pampas grass every year?

    My neighbor recently set fire to one of their clumps, taking out a rail on the split rail fence (their own fence). She admitted that the rail was an accident but burning the bush was not. In fact, she has plans to burn 3 others on the fence line. She says, "For a healthy plant, you have to burn them each winter!" This is our first year in this home, moving in last July. As a child, I remember our neighbors having these bushes but DO NOT remember anyone just dowsing them with gas and setting them on fire. I would have remembered because, as a kid, it would have been so cool to see. Shouldn't you cut them down first? Do they have to be burned in place? I know it's her fence but it seems like a few more rails are destined to go....

  • What can I do with a coffin flag?I don't want to display it nor do I think it's fitting for me to stick it in a box in the back of the shed.?

    Ok. My mil by my late 3rd husband had a brother who died. At his funeral, his widow gave my mil the flag. My late hubs took it and hung it for years off our porch. It was against lattice and has faded in a lattice pattern. I have folded it properly into a triangle. Now what? (The respect I want to show is to the flag/country, not so much the man)
