Questions and Answers
What is a good shoe to wear being on your feet all day cashering ?Feet hurt.
I need to hide my cuts on my wrists!?I don’t need a “cutting is stupid, it’s unhealthy”, and all that cuz I KNOW! I’m trying to stop, i swear. (not to sound bitchy or anything)So problem is I have a home game for basketball tomorrow. Uniform is sleeveless. White, and I need white under armor to wear with it. I don’t have white under armor.
Plus, make up I used once, and omfg did it hurt like hell. So PLEASE any other ways to hide the cuts. I’d rather not have the whole school knowing I’m a cutter and insulting me and all this other shit people do when they find stuff out about people they don’t like.
Outlawed: Arm warmers, Under Armor Long selves, Wrist bands…and…I’m forgetting something, I know I am.
MiddemsI’m not sure if this would be outlawed, but try some of that gauze bandage wrap that people use to wrap up a strained muscle (I used it to wrap my shins when I got shin splints in cross country, and to wrap my wrist when I sprained it). They are usually white or beige-colored and should be ok for a game. I would wear mine during cross country meets to prevent more injury to my shins, and the officials at the race were fine with me running with it on. I often see basketball players with gauze bandage wraps like that around their knees and shins for similar reasons. You should be fine.The wrap that I have is reusable and attaches securely with vel-cro. You can find one at a sports store or probably at like a walmart (I got them from my mom, who’s a nurse and has them in her closet. Ha.) Wrap one around your wrist and secure it around your hand (like in the picture below), between your thumb and pointer finger. Just be sure not to cut off circulation with it! (I did that too often with my wrist… My hand turned blue and numb, not good. Haha). If you wrap it right, it should be perfect for you to play comfortably at the game, and with no one able to see your cuts. Here is an idea of what I am referring to: (don’t worry, this is a picture I found off google) :]
Good luck! With the game and especially with overcoming cutting. I’m glad you know it’s harmful, and I’m sure you can do it! Don’t feel bad about yourself. That’s just how you cope, and it is understood. Just keep trying hard and find healthier outlets, and you’ll be alright. Email me at email@example.com if you need to talk! I wish you all the best, hun! :]
I am pregnant I think?Okay, my period is 2 months late and I had morning sickness (all day) last month. Now, when I suck in my stomach there is a little bump that won’t go away. I am scared to go to the doctor because then my parents will find out. But my closes are getting tight on my bum. I have 3 weeks left of school and I have to wear an uniform. So, there is no way I can get bigger closes. I thought about an abortion but I am to scared to get one. I guess I have been avoiding the topic for 2 months. Except today my friend said my boobs looked really big and that last month I was sick all the time at school and she asked if I was pregnant and I told her I was. I took home pregnancy test (10) they all came back pregnant. I have this baby in me and I am stuck with it. The guy doesn’t know I don’t know how I can ever tell anyone. So, what should I do? What should I do about my clothes? What should I do about the people in my life? I AM ONLY GOING TO GET FATTER!!!!!!
MiddemsI would suggest Food Stamps, WIC and Medicaid – see if you qualify. Medicaid covers midwives in some states, so be sure to check out all your options.Get, beg, buy, steal or borrow one of these books. Even if you choose a hospital birth these books are still great reads. It shows birth as a positive, beautiful and empowering experience.
Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth: Discover the Proven Wisdom That Has Guided Thousands of Women Through Childbirth With More Confidence, Less Pain, and Little or No Medical Intervention by Ina May Gaskin.
Spiritual Midwifery, 4th Edition: The classic book on home birth! The first section details the experiences of parents and midwives during the birth experience. The second section is a technical manual for midwives, nurses, and doctors. Includes information on prenatal care and nutrition, labor, delivery-techniques, care of the new baby, and breast-feeding. Very informative stuff.
Consider hiring a doula . . . . .
A doula is a knowledgeable, experienced companion – who stays with them through labor, birth and beyond. Birth doulas offer emotional support, encouragement and wisdom throughout labor and birth.
Consider giving birth upright so that gravity helps instead of having to push a baby up hill out of you (such as giving birth laying flat on your back) Even if you are in a hospital request a squat bar, squatting also allows your pelvic outlet to increase that crucial 1/2 – 1 inch. Http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h…
Also when in labor – walk as much as possible, stretch and just n general keep moving – do not let the contractions paralyze you. You will feel more pain if you do let them paralyze you.
I went though childbirth without any meds for the pain. Focus on the goal, not the pain.
The Portable Pediatrician is another useful book to have around, it covers everything from birth to age 5. Http://www.amazon.com/Portable-Pediatric…
Please breastfeed! I am not a militant pro-teat crazy but it has great immunological benefits, it also helps you loose the weight faster and it’s a great bonding mechanism. Http://kellymom.com/ Is a great site and so is Http://llli.org/ Le Leache Int’l Conversely is you choose not to or cannot breast feed, formula feed and don’t feel guilty or look back. WalMart brand is some of the cheapest formula around. Try to stay on a schedule for the first couple months this will make having a schedule later easier on the both of you. For the first couple of month the baby needs to eat every 3 hours barring them sleeping through the night whenever they get to that. Investing in a co-sleeper is a great idea, so you don’t have to wander far to get the baby in the middle of the night. Sleep every free moment you have! Http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.d…
Take you multi-vits and take your iron pills with a glass of orange juice – better absorption. You can over-indulge on healthy stuff all day long but keep your sweet tooth in check – also munchy foods, not too much. This will also help you from gaining too much weight.
Also bundle your baby when they should sleep, this will get hir programmed that when they are bundled they should sleep. I still bundle my 16 month old and she never gives me trouble going to nap or bed.
The best suggestion I can make is get a Paragard – these reasons I got mine; no hormones (can’t do regular birth control due to the synthetic hormones), is idiot proof (no pills, patches or rings to remember or forget) and it’s good for up to 12 yrs. Also it’s compatible with breastfeeding.
That’s all the advice I can think of, I hope it helped. If you need someone to talk to email me.
Sorry ttried taking of the second hand from the clock I have and it was still ticking and I have also deformed the clock in the process. It was worth a try. Thanks any way
Sorry can’t tock either. No ticking, No tocking.
Middems Seiko makes a line of clocks they call “QuietSweep”. Their movements are designed not to tick. But some can be a bit pricey I think. If I stumble on something else, I’ll try to update.Here’s a website where you can view some of what Seiko has to offer. Please note I am not affiliated with this website nor do I particularly recommend it. It always pays to shop around in order to buy brand name watches at discount prices
UPDATE: If you’re looking for something more fashionable and are willing to “buy a pig in a poke”, you can go to e-Bay and search for “vintage wall clock” or “kitchen wall clock”. Specifically you need to look for older clocks which cords that plugged into a wall outlet. That sort of clock didn’t usuallly tick. Although the motors and gears in some created a soft hum that shouldn’t be too obtrusive.
