About Me

  1. So I went to the hospital at 2:30 AM. They gave me a 30mg shot of Toradol. That only reduced it a bit. They sent me home. I took 2 Tylenol 1 and got in bed at 5:45. I woke up before 7:30 screaming in pain. My husband took me back to the hospital. This time it was another dr. He said he is sure I have Trigeminal Neuralgia and gave me another shot of Toradol 60mg. He gave me 200 mg of carbamazepine . I have to take 400 mg a day. It is an anti seizure medication that will relax the nerve. And he have me hydromorhone 2 mg for pain. They have me lined up to see a specialist. Sorry I am not maki
  2. By how much has the protection decreased? When I was up to the middle of the last week of my combined pill pack, I missed a pill. I took two pills at the same time the next day to "make up for it". A few days into the sugar pill week, I got withdrawal bleeding as normal. In retrospect, I really should have just skipped the placebo pills completely and started a new pack, but I seldom have sex (like I then had protected sex (with a condom) 2 days into a new pack. At the time I thought a condom would be enough, but now I'm freaking out. I really cannot risk getting pregnant at this st
  3. During badminton practice (for high school), we were practicing girls doubles, when both my partner and I went for the birdie at the same time. My partner was a strong player, and when she swung, the racket hit me right in the mouth, causing my lips to start bleeding (both upper and bottom) and immediately sending me into tears of pain. She didn't apologize, and acted as if nothing had happened. I think she might have genuinely not known that she had hit me, but it still hurts a lot and still causes me some trouble when eating (my parents applied medication, but the effect is slow). I kind of
  4. Hi everyone, I'm a little embarrassed and shy to go to friends and family on this one so here I go. My bf and I have been together for years. He's a very anxious man and worries about everything, even when it comes to sex. He is afraid of me getting pregnant. When we first started dating, it took him 1.5 years until we finally had sex. One stipulation to this was that I would need to tell him what future medications I take since some interfere with birth control. Simple enough, so I agreed. I am on birth control pills by the way. Fast forward 4 years. There was a time I got extremely sic
  5. I don't know what I can do to help in this situation. Any input would be great. I'm dating this guy just over a month. We have become really close quickly. It's a weird situation- he's been friends with this girl for 14 years. They have a 4 month old baby together. It's just one of those things that happened. He choose to live with her to help bring up the baby. There is nothing romantic there 💯. They sleep in separate rooms. So although this might seem like my problem... It's strangely not. It's a weird situation but I'm ok with it. All his money goes to the baby. He's such a great
  6. Hi everyone, I'm in a bit of a transition stage in my life at the mo and to cut a long story short I've moved in with my mum for a few months while I get money together for a house deposit and find a decent place. We have always had a strained relationship but it has gotten better in recent years. When I was growing up she was very critical of me and made daily comments about how I looked, especially my weight. I have carried a bit extra for most if my life except for a couple of stages where I lost an extreme amount of weight in extreme ways. I have recently put some weight back on and
  7. So, my girlfriend and I (both 29) have been together for two and a half years but we've been having a few issues (pretty much the same things that keep being mentioned). This is my first real relationship and I absolutely love her and I'm very sure that I'm still IN love with her but lately I've been finding myself a little more irritated when she brings up problems with me/our relationship. We have also started arguing a lot more too. It has got to the point where I'm considering taking a bit of time out just to clear my head. Most of the time we're really happy together - laughing at
  8. I have quite a bad depression for which I have to take medication. As far as I can tell it's mostly due to my loneliness. When you're nearing 30 and still hoping for your first kiss it just really wears on you. As long as there is someone I can view as a potential partner, I can manage it decently thanks to my medication, but as I recently faced rejection all my usual depressive symptoms came back in full force. I usually get stuck in a situation where I'm unable to do anything but lay down and cry and it can last hours. It is at these points, that suicide feels like the only option. As unfort
  9. I know I have depression and I do take meds for it. However, even with the medication I have absolutely no compunction or drive or whatever you want to call it to leave my house. I used to get excited to do things, now I am not. I am a new grandma, my grandbaby makes me happy, which hopefully means that part of me is still there, I just cannot access it for everything. I want to get excited to go on outings. I want to find events that I really WANT to go to..... I am just newly disabled due to back issue that has plagued me since I was a teenager, so that is one reason I stay at home. W
  10. I have never slept so good in my life except when I was on anti-seizure meds. One of the side effects of one of my blood pressure meds is feeling tired. I am a write off by 8:30. However, true I wake up at 5:30 AM. Most nights I am unconscious by close to 930. And I sleep rock solid till 530. I have never been like that in my life.
  11. I'm dating someone casually, and this is what I need right now. We've started dating this summer. He's a very wise and self-aware person but God help me his cold logic attitude can be hard to bear. We agreed to date without expectations. We've also talked about getting pregnant scenario - he said multiple times he's against having children now and would support me only in decision of abortion. We've jokingly called him "a fan of abortion". I'm not "a fan" myself and I'm 31 (but not in hurry to have a family if I ever want that), so in case of unwanted pregnancy I would strongly think about kee
  12. My wife brought my dinner over to me, knife and fork on the plate. And I picked them up and I couldn't remember how to hold them. Whatever I tried, it didn't feel right. A couple of moments later, it passed and I worked out how to hold them. I'm only 22. I'm on Sertraline for severe depression after having taken sleeping pills - which proved too strong and doped me up to the eyeballs. A similar thing happened a few weeks ago while watching something with the wife. She insisted we'd seen it before the week before; I said we hadn't and we had a little argument about that because we were
  13. Please help, i have been in a relationship for almost 4 years, one of them it was a long distance relationship but throughout the relationship there been a lot of fights and discussions, something that was weird but ultimately seemed normal, but as time goes by it has escalated. My gf main arguments is that I am not strong enough and I don't seem manly, that I am clumsy and that it seems as I was always with my head somewhere else, that I am slow, and she calls me a kid. I am an introvert, and I take my time to do things such as cooking something or sweeping the floor or such but I don't consi
  14. So i moved to Canada about 5 months ago, it started off bad, it got better i made friends. i made one great friend, and me and her started flirting, and we kissed about 2 weeks ago now, but it didnt end well. i am a guy and i am such a i keep wanting just to have someone to hold ontop of that i said to my mum i wanted to move back and now she isnt talking to me, i just feel stuck in life, i have considered pills and at the worst times i feel so stuck the only reason i dont kill myself is becuase i am to scared it would hurt, i wouldnt give it a second thought if it was painless, i

    Legal question

    Hypothetical question. Say you had taken a large quantity of pills/done something to yourself and locked all your doors/windows ect. and someone somehow found out what you had done/become concerned u might have done something and called the police/ambulance/whatever. Are they legally allowed to break in to your house? Are they allowed to remove you from your house even if you say no?
  16. ive had practiv solutions now for about 2 weeks. i went to their website and they were saying "no acne in 2-3 weeks" and had all these testimnies about how well it works and how amazing it is. ive been using it exactly as they say to for the past 2 weeks and my acne looks the exact same and all it's doing is drying my face out to the point it's uncomfortable to yawn sometimes cause my skin is like tight as a canvas. i do use lotion all the time but it's just too much dryness. anyone else think proactiv is a waste? the only option i have left is accutane, and seeing as how no medication
  17. Ok - I'm a male in my early 30's, and I experienced something this weekend that I haven't experienced before. I couldn't climax. I have a new girlfriend and we have been really active for the last month, but I have never had a problem reaching orgasm until last night. I was hard - and stayed hard - but after about 20 minutes she was like aren't you going to finish? and I couldn't finish. I don't know if it was because this was the 6th time in the last 3 days or if I was "trying" too hard to finish? Anyone have any ideas or have any experience with this? I'm not on any medications that
  18. Hi fellas. Got a favor to ask. I'm looking for a cheaper alternative to regular CVS stores since some of my medication isn't covered by health insurance. Yes, those are non-prescription drugs and I've been thinking about some sort of a cheaper alternative like online drug stores. I've heard that Canadian ones are a lot cheaper than US-based. And judging by the news about their health system I don't think this theory is far fetched. Anyway, I need any feedback regarding real life experience of dealing with online drug stores. Any pitfalls etc. Will appreciate any kind of info regarding this iss
  19. Dear all, I am seeing a guy for over 2,5 years. We had a relationship label for about 6 months but it made him so anxious that we officially broke up but kept seeing each other and were exclusive still. I know, very strange. We finally really broke up a few months ago, we haven’t seen each other for a month until he came back again. We are not exclusive now but we do see each other a lot, we hang out with mutual friends etc. He had a really rough youth, his father was murdered and he has contact with his mother even though it’s not a normal mom-son bond. It is clear he has a lot of unre
  20. I have been using proactiv solution for about 2 years and it has worked really well for me. I decided to get some new medication because it just seemed that the proactiv was controling less and less breakouts for me. It still worked but it didn't work as well as it did when i first started using it. Anyways i just got some stuff from the doctor first off some pills. I think the pills are called doxycycline and i also got some 100$ cream called DIFFERIN GELL. I know iv herd about differen gell before but is it any good? Anybody know if these medications are good at all?
  21. Hello all, I suffer with anxiety, I have been on and off medication for around 12 years. I am receiving therapy to address this. My main problem is I often run out of my medication and I feel this is hindering my progress. I have tried a few different things to overcome this with little success. When I looked at when my last prescription was order it was about 4 months ago, on a 2 month prescription, so I’m missing meds nearly every other day. So far I have tried, leaving the last spare packet in my car but I always forget to reorder then I use this up and panic. Putting a reminder
  22. Hi all. I posted my story a while back, it really is a messed up situation. I am not posting again regarding my ex or my kids but about me. So we are 5 months on from the end of my 20yr relationship, married 13yr. NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!! I think about her constantly, it is consuming me. I am close to losing my job due to concentration levels. I work nights and can go without sleep in between shifts. As of now I have been awake since Thursday afternoon. I am down to 69kg in weight although I have made an effort to eat 3 meals a day this week. I went to the docs last week and he gave me pills
  23. I'm suffering from terrible relationship anxiety. I honestly don't know if it's coming from me (I do suffer from anxiety and am currently on medication and going to counselling), or whether it is a result of me needs not being met in my relationship. I feel the need for my SO to reassure me. A lot. But he doesn't at all really. He seems to think that my insecurity is my issue and I should get over it on my own. He once said that otherwise it would be a codependent relationship. Maybe he is right. But I feel alone. And lost. And so agitated with nowhere to turn for help or reprieve. I'm trying
  24. I've had a really hard time managing my depression lately. The medication doesn't work. Therapy isn't working either. I thought I was getting better but have since then nose dived. I've been reading about self harm and it seems to provide relief for many people. Has anyone tried this and did it work for you? I'm perfectly aware it's not healthy. But I'll try anything at this point.
  25. This goes deeper than just initiating contact. So, I will start where her and I left off. It was summer of last year and we had taken a break. From that break I decided that I did not want to live without this woman so I made plans to get engaged. I had the ring already and the break was more of a time to think what we wanted in life. Well, things went sour when we initially got back together. Most of it was my fault. I have BP2 disorder and I wasn't taking medication at the time. Its difficult to distinguish whether im sick or not mentally when I tip over the ledge, so to speak. We ended up
