About Me

  1. Hello! I have a new female friend but I kinda can't call her a friend. We have been "friends" for about a year and it was going good and she is so nice. But she doesn't respond to my messages. Sometimes she'll not respond at all or sometimes days later. It's really annoying. For instance she messaged me last night and asked how I was (i've had minor surgery so can't leave my house). She msg me before the surgery and I said I will need visitors as I can't go anywhere. Then I didn't hear from her for over a week until last night. Then I respond enthusiastically to her message she was
  2. Happy Friday Everyone! I am a married female who has had a gay male best friend for over 45 years.....yes, we are getting old. My best friend played the organ at my wedding in 1979. My husband, myself and friend...I will call him Brady, all grew up together. My husband is not jealous so that was never an issue. So Brady and I usually talk everyday on FaceTime. We visit then say the Rosary together as we are Catholics. This year has been mega stressful for me. I had to go to court and take my granddaughter away from my oldest daughter due to abuse and neglect. My Mother went into extr
  3. Hi everyone, I'm posting here because I wonder if there's anyone who can relate, there isn't as much on grieving a pet as there is people, but I've come to realise it's no different. My darling girl Delilah passed away in a dramatic turn of events about 10 days ago and it's shattered my world. I didn't even realise how much it could possibly hurt. Everything seems meaningless and my life is empty without my best friend by my side. I rescued her from a shelter 10 years ago, and we've been joined ever since, and deeply loved each other. Early morning the other week, out of the blue, she star
  4. Many years ago, I injured my back. Actually, I fractured it. And have been living with pain ever since. I finally got approval from insurance for surgery. But surgery for this is not easy. Doctor says it takes about 5 to 6 hours. They start with an incision in the front, and end with another incision in back to install rods & screws. This is something I'd been wanting for years - to finally live without pain! But the closer the surgery gets, the more I am freakimg out. Here's why: I don't have much family or friends, but I need to have someone who will not only take me to the hos
  5. I feel as if my life was in limbo for the past ten months. Back and forth to various doctors, not knowing what the heck the ‘mass’ was. Then a surgery and more confusion! I was feeling cast in this dim light that I might have bladder cancer. Then I saw a Urologist Oncologist whom did a cystoscope on me this afternoon. He did not only that! He read through all of my medical records and history dating far back. He looked at my most recent Urogram. He told me the Wonderful news: The urine shows no signs of a tumor or cancer cells. Then he did the cystoscope to find not only my bladder
  6. I've always known I had issues with things like depression and anxiety, but after turning 25 recently it hit me how dysfunctional I am in general and I'm not sure what the best steps are to take to get help. I grew up with an alcoholic narcissist mother (father wasn't there much) and she sent me away to a wilderness and boarding school program at age 16. After getting out at age 18 I didn't know how to adjust back to the real world and started smoking weed all day every day. I also started stripping as I had issues keeping other jobs and focusing in school due to my addictions. It's now be
  7. has anyone had or known someone who has had a sinus lift and dental implants? how was the recovery? surgery? were they happy with the results? I'm pretty terrified of the idea but I think it will make a big improvement in my quality of life.
  8. Hello, So i am 20years old and i had a circumcision surgery last year. I didnt have a girlfriend that time so around 1 month ago almost a year after my surgery i was with a girl and i finally had sex after my surgery. Before my surgery i could last atleast for 10 minutes minimum but now i barely last 3 minutes, even less sometimes. We even had sex 3-4 times a day and even at that time i felt i was cumming at the very beginning let's say around 30-40 second? Like realllyyy fast. I am feeling very bad about this so this is why i made an account on this site just to ask if anyone knows anythi
  9. Ok so I'm sure some of you have read my post in the relationship thread about my fiance working out of town and us barely talking and so on. Basically what this boils down to is I'm unhappy. I have been extremely stressed due to the fact that he still has not been able to contribute to the Bill's at all. Except maybe $50. Now granted I can see where some of you would say he shouldn't have to pay for any of the bills here, if he's not currently here which I understand. but he's not even trying to help pay our cellphone bill. His solution to the fact that our phones are going to be shutoff is
  10. Hi ENA, I broke my ankle at roller derby on 1/28/19; surgery to repair the bimalleolar fracture on 2/5/19. I had physical therapy for about 2 months after I was mobile, but due to an insurance snafu, I had to discontinue it about a month ago. I was given clearance to begin skating lightly again on 6/27/19, but after three attempts, my ankle just isn't having any of it. I bought new skates that come up over my ankle (as the surgeon recommended), and I wear compression socks to improve circulation, but I can't wear any type of sleeve or brace because my skates would be too small (although
  11. I joined the Navy out of high school. While serving, I was injured while working. I had small fractures in my ankle. Over the years, 14 to be exact, I've lost mobility, the pain gets worse and worse. I was referred to an orthopedic surgeon at the VA hospital and he stated I needed surgery. He asked if I smoked and I told him no but do use an electronic cigarette. He said surgery could not be done due to nicotine in my system. The juice I use for my e cig is 0.3% nicotine. Can I be denied the surgery for that.
  12. I have a younger sister who is like 26 now. She is still in college in another country. My mom pays for her tuition and living expense. I usually give her some for the living expense every now and then. She goes to college full time and doesn't work becuase she won't make much becuase she lives in Asia. She has a habit of lying about everything especially when it comes to money. She lied to me about getting money for surgery for her puppy. She said she will do the surgery in a few months after she got the money and never get it done. Now also she said the doctor found a lump on her arm
  13. Hey everyone, this will be a long post so bare with me. I'm a 19-year-old college student in nursing school. I broke up with my boyfriend of two years a month ago. During the relationship, he lied to me on a daily basis. Worst of all is that the lies were him talking to other girls, snap chatting other girls, and finding girls to talk to you on tinder. He also hunts, which which I am strongly against. It was a constant topic for fighting during our relationship, and at one point he agreed to stop doing it. However, he did not stop doing it and went behind my back and hunted. He has a very
  14. Hey guys. So, I have been planning with this "friend" of mine to go to a concert with me. We have been planning this since May(2015). I'm in this age range 16-19 and my friend is a little older she's 24. This is one of my favorite bands and I have been looking forward to this for the past 3 months. My friend also likes this band as well. Well, I texted her today to confirm that she is still good to go(concert is on the weekend). And she said "Oh, I'm so sorry! I totally forgot! I have to get mouth surgery at the end of this week and won't be able to go with you. I hope you can find some
  15. Hello. I have been internet friends with a transgender girl (born with a penis, girl in her mind) for about a year now. It never bothered me before. She has always been super nice, and likes cool stuff such as guitar and video games like an awesome person should. We would sometimes only talk once a month or so during these times, but it generally turned into a quality 5 hour conversation that we both enjoyed. I have never met her in RL, and I don't think I ever plan to as she lives in the UK and I am in the US. A couple things have happened recently that have made me feel uneasy about
  16. I'm hoping somebody can give me some outside perspective, maybe you've been in her shoes or maybe you've been in mine but I'm struggling to understand the situation as it is from where I stand. I have been struggling with health issues on and off for the last few years. Within the last 6 months I had been diagnosed with an androgen deficiency disorder, had a breast cancer scare (my breast is still growing and I'm hoping to have it rechecked very soon), and had chronic pain in my lower pelvic to which my primary doctors disregarded it as "psychosomatic" and referred me to my psychiatrist.
  17. Hi everyone, I had an abortion (surgery) three months ago and until then I did not have sex. And now since I feel that I'm healed completely I had sex with my boyfriend but it was so painful as if I'm having sex for the first time and it start bleeding, and I thought it was just because I don't had it for so long and so we attempt for the second time the next day and the same thing happen again he can't just get inside of me. Please help I'm really in need of your help.
  18. I'm 30 and he's 26. Our relationship was great! We had a couple small arguments in the past and he would call his mom to come get him and all his stuff at my house. The Longest we stayed broken up was a week and the shortest was a couple days, in which he would always call or text telling me how much he loves me and can't lose me and he's miserable without me so I would then go pick him and his stuff up and everything would be good he would promise me he wasn't going to run again but then it happened! Everything was good up until I had shoulder surgery and I remember asking him plenty about if
  19. So I've been seeing this guy for over 4 years and he has a lot of health issues and had open heart surgery a few months ago and now diagnosed with beginning stage of CHF he is only 37, he's been stressed from that and his business and has been not himself we got into an argument and he was mad and then would write me for a few days then told me after I asked if it was over he only replied with this... "I'm not mad or aggravated at all. But you do keep repeating yourself lol..... Things will be fine it takes time you understand. Just a lot on my plate." I don't know what to make of this, is
  20. Hello, thanks for reading. So I met a lovely, humble, sweet guy online about 6 weeks ago. We have hit it off very well and have shared our growing like for each other, chatting on the phone for hours at a time for 4 weeks after our first date. He has come out of a relationship in jan, and admitted that he went online to dip his toes in, not thinking he'd find anything serious so soon. He went a little quiet, and upon me offering that maybe he was having some second thoughts about date two (and I told him that was fine if that's how he felt), he admitted he really liked me and was concerned
  21. I have written in the past about my grandma's issues here, and I was told in the past to get the heck out of her house... but I have had no where to go and no one else has stepped up to take care of her so I am still here, but moving in september. my grandma has parkinson's, fainting spells and a really bad memory that is showing signs of dementia. She had a spinal fusion surgery in april, and since then I have had to take care of her. for the month after her surgery, she was fainting and falling down up to 7 times a day. no one would listen to me when I said there was a problem, she ended
  22. Hello. This is my first time posting here. I am looking for some advice. For the past several months, my wife has been so negative. We have good times and bad times, but I don't remember the last day we had when there wasn't something negative that she has brought up randomly to bring us down. She is a beautiful woman, but she doesn't see it herself, and I know that's where all the negativity is coming from. I tell her every day how beautiful/gorgeous/etc. she is. The recurring topic is plastic surgery. I never liked the thought of plastic surgery, but supported her getting surgery a y
  23. So i have been visiting my dentist every 2 weeks since last September (I didn't think it would take this long but he's booking me in every two weeks for reviews and checks to make sure the procedures he has carried out are coming along properly) so yeah anyways I have been seeing him every 2 weeks.. He is very attractive and very friendly, but ever since about the third appointment he takes about 2 minutes to do the check up and then sits there talking to me for about 10-15minutes! His nurse is always stood there like... He asked me last year if I was seeing anyone and I said no and h
  24. I'm 22 years old and am struggling with body dysmorphia. BDD aside, I always had a very tiny flat butt and a few months back I had butt augmentation. (Save the judgment please, not what this is about) The surgery of all the procedures I want or have gotten is probably the one I actually sort of needed (not that anyone NEEDS plastic surgery, I just mean physically it wasn't a delusion that my butt needed work). It came out looking much better and pretty round though I wouldn't mind it a little bigger still. I started talking to a guy recently, we haven't had sex yet but are flirting heavily
  25. Last year around this time I started seeing someone, we exclusively saw each other on and off for about 6-7 months (his idea to be exclusive, not mine). I ended it because we were going nowhere, weren't falling in love, and he told me at the end of the day it made him too jealous to date someone with my job as an exotic dancer (I understand that, but it was annoying since I told him from day one what my job was and it took him months to figure out his feelings about it). So yeah, I peaced out, deleted his number, etc. (Please save the judgmental BS about dancing for another time, not what this
