I've had toothache for 2 weeks now from referred wisdom tooth pain. I'm on 400mg ibuprofen and paracetamol & codeine. I had 1 paracetamol & codeine about an hour ago and an ibuprofen an hour before that. Can I take another ibuprofen even though the instructions say no more than 3 in 24 hours?
How do you say ibuprofen? Where are you from? I'm from south west England and say eye-byew-pro-fen. My dad says eye-bu-prufen
I have a friend that I'm in love with, yet not. It's strange. I would seriously marry him on the spot if he asked me, I could spend the rest of my life with him & being around him makes me extremely happy. I'm giddy with excitement because we're actually planning on moving in together.
Yet I have no interest in romantically or sexually. I even turned him down for sex when he drunkenly asked me. Plus he recently broke up with his girlfriend of 2 years & I was really disappointed because I loved her & she was a good friend, even though I wanted to be the centre of his attention.
I AM SO CONFUSED!
Does anyone else have similar feelings for someone? What would you call it? Pining? A strange fixation? Plain weird? I DUNNO PEOPLE!
My laptop that I've had for about 3 years just overheated and died. This has happened to me before with my previous laptop and it turned back on again but the screen didn't show. Has this happened to any of yall? What should I do to remedy this problem? I have a fan/cooler thing I got from fry's but it doesn't seem to work that well. Is my laptop forever fucked?
If you don't know/don't care, will you post a picture of a hairstyle you love? I'm about to get my cosmetology license so I've been obsessed with hair for a while now.
Im adopted. and like my previous posts, my parents always put the blame on me in which i destroyed their lives and taking me in was such a big mistake and nowadays my mum spends most of her time trying to repair me into the perfect daughter(stepford child if i may)
Last morning, apparantly she called my friend up and complained to him about me, and how awful I am.. and she double faced him.. I have showed him texts from her abt how awful he is and how i should be careful with him(coz hes gay.. gay=bad according to my mum), and she told him how happy she is to have him there for me. Oops for mum.
And my friend, told me that quote"Seriously your mum is a dumbfuck" and " she doesnt even know you!!" which is true.
I have felt guilty all my life for just existing, which resulted in many psychological issues (ED, Depression, etc). What makes me more guilty is that she does everything for me financially. Pays my uni, allowances, goes all out to get me the money needed etc.
My question is, what should I do? Should I start ignoring her and start living, despite having to rely on her finanlcially, which makes it very unfair for her. Or should I succumb and just do whatever she says? I want to enjoy my life. I only have one life. And Iits not my fault for their sufferings and mishaps.. they didnt plan anything and just did whatever they wanted in the name of making me happy, which didnt(like buying 2 extra houses, debts everywhere).
I feel very guilty in doing anything that makes me happy.. how do i address this?
Know i will get awesome answers here... Yahho answers just doesnt cut it
1. I'm trying to find information on gender reassignment surgery, specifically if there's a minimum requirement/pre-requisite put forth by individual states. Anyone know someone/had this surgery that could point me in the right direction? (Google yields nothing, sorry for quasi hw related question!)
2. Don't care/Don't know, what's a game/video game you play all the time and can't get enough of?
I walked my step-aunts dogs this weekend for 4 days and am meant to be doing it on Friday again. I need to go out of town on Friday, leavig Thursday. Do I a) just not show up. No one will be any the wiser and if they are I pretend i forgot b) text my aunt to get the person who's walking them the other days number to see if he will swap c) leave a note out for her step-son who is at home but working to let him sort it out?
If you answered yes to question A but no to question B, money means everything to you and you may be a greedy hoar. If you answered no to question A and yes to question B, you may be petty cause looks mean everything. If you answered yes to both, you may be a prude. If you answered no to both, you may be addicted to peen. What did this poll reveal about you?
What do you think my chances are of finding warm (fleece, etc) gloves at the store for a ski trip this weekend? Seeing as though there are bikinis and shorts out already, I'm thinking my chances are slim.
Also, what should the lolcat caption for this photo be?
After a rather interesting Valentine's Day with the boyfriend, I ended up needing the morning after pill/Plan B. I now have the box sitting in front of me along with non-drowsy Dramamine (I just took two, since apparently you're supposed to take them an hour before your intended...activity), original Dramamine, Pepto pills, SeaBands, and that weird syrupy stuff for nausea.
It's an understatement to say that I am terrified of throwing up. It is a lifelong phobia. It has never gone away. I have taken two Klonopin and I'm still nervous. :(
I heard that Plan B can make you sick, but the pharmacist said it's not that common. Another girl said, however , that she was prescribed an anti-nausea pill alongside it because it's such a common side-effect. Argh...
Anyone have any experience taking the pill? I have every anti-sick pill I could find (plus SeaBands), and some more Klonopin to hopefully keep me from bursting into tears and frantically writing my will in case I must jump off a building.
Seriously, though, I really am scared. Am I overreacting? It's been about ten hours since the "oops" moment happened, so I still have some time to calm down about this. Or write out my will.
ETA: I took the first pill. I feel a bit calmer now. Thanks, guys.
can you recommend some wine for me to try? i like sweet table reds such as bully hill or red zeppelin as well as riesling and sweeter blends on the white end of the spectrum. i can always enjoy a nice glass of pino gris as well.
My son wanted to give some valentine's day treats to the dogs who live at his residence, so we decided to bake dog cookies. Saturday I went shopping for ingredients - I needed whole wheat flour, corn meal, wheat germ, and chicken broth. I went to three supermarkets looking for the flours I needed, and at all three the flour section was mostly empty. There were some of the more expensive brands left, but the store brand flours were sold out.
Where has all the flour gone?
My wife thinks it was used up at the normal rate, but not replaced because stores have had trouble restocking because of the snow storms.
My son thinks that people stocked up on extra flour because you can't risk not having any during a snow storm.
I'm wondering if there is something about the holidays and holy days this week that caused extra demand for flour. I can't think of anything that would cause oodles of extra people to buy extra flour for Valentine's Day, or Lunar New Year, or President's Day, can you? Or is there something about Fat Tuesday/Ash Wednesday/Lent that calls for flour? (I'm not any sort of Christian, so I don't know the traditions.)
a question for any of the lesbians or bi females: do you see yourself as a "butch" or "femme" type, or do those labels not feel relevant to you? are you generally more attracted to more masculine or feminine women?
A friend of the family gave me the contact information for a recruiter that her company is involved with. I'm unsure of how to word the email I'm sending him. Specifically, how do I begin the email and what do I use as the subject line if I'm not submitting my resume for a particular job opening?
Can anyone explain the reasoning behind the restrictions on foodstamps/SNAP benefits to me? Like I get the "no alcohol or tobacco or pet food" rule. I can even understand the "no toothpaste or toilet paper" rule if I squint...ok, not really, everyone has teeth and goes to the bathroom, but whatever, those aren't food so I can at least see the technical distinction. But why no prepared food? It's still food. And if you don't have access to cooking facilities, it may be -really necessary- food. And you can buy pre-made food and candy and whatnot (I am not against this! Far be it from me to dictate anyone's shopping habits.) so I don't get it.
Question because--I /like/ my rotisserie chickens, dammit. They're cheaper than buying a whole chicken and roasting it myself (especially at the end of the day when they get 'discounted'), they taste better, and then I have the carcass for soup-making. They are basically a freaking staple! But oh well, I can't complain too much.
I am looking for a pair of flip-flops. I have a few requirements:
---$40 or less (ideally $20 but who am I kidding, no one sells decent shoes for that little) ---Will not be damaged by water ---Have some arch support ---Will last at least a year. For the record, $3-for-a-pair flip-flops last me 3 to 6 months. ---Have at least a little grippiness to the soles ---Have a relatively thick sole, so I can skateboard and not kill them $3-a-pair flip-flops have a sole this thick, so I don't think it should be a problem, but I could be wrong about that.
Does such a pair of flip-flops exist? If so, where can I find them?
There are several sports that I only hear anything about/see/etc during the Olympics.
Have you ever learned how to play (?) a relatively obscure sport (bobsled, etc)?
Or have you ever competed in a well-known but not very public sport? As in, I learned how to do archery at girl scout camp, and was pretty good at it, and could probably find an archery range to practice at easily, but I've never heard of any archery competitions.
Also, not an Olympic sport, but have you ever witnessed a match of elephant polo?
For those of you with mild or moderate food intolerances or allergies, how often do you indulge in the foods that make you feel icky? Do you find that you feel worse after eating them if you've gone a long time without, or no difference?
What food would you never give up, no matter how badly you were allergic to it (assuming the allergy wasn't so bad it was fatal)?
The housing office of my school emailed me today to come in and get my key for my new room (a single room in another building). I took a bunch of stuff over there this evening and discovered someone elses stuff is already in there! I have a deadline of Wed at 11am to move in there and I have classes all day tomorrow. What should I do? I left a message on my current RA and my new RA's doors and on the housing office answering machine.
How do I get this guys number? I have his friends number, should I just text the friend? But then if he wanted me to have his number, he would have given it to me like when I had sex with him. But then again maybe he doesn't want to see me again BECAUSE I had sex with him like three hours after meeting. Hm... I just really want his number! But the friend is kind of weird? So I have to text him, but he keeps pestering me to have a threesome with me and my other friend? Like proper STALKING her, can I tell him to stop? No, oh no!
If that doesn't interest you, have you ever ridden on a motorcycle?
In a long term relationship, how important is it for you that you get along well with your SO's family?
I didn't used to care that much if my boyfriend's family members liked me. Most of my previous boyfriend's parents were indifferent to me, but now that my current SO and I are thinking about getting married, and his family has been so warm and kind to me, I can't imagine going without getting along with and feeling accepted by them.
My good friend is about to bring his 130lb 1.5 year old rottwieler he just got to meet my 2 year old 13lb pomeranian. We really want these two to be friends. How should we introduce them to each other? Meet outside, I'm guessing... right?
The rotti is at home laying around with a 5lb fox terrier completely ignoring him... so I should have nothing to worry about right?
I don't know why I'm asking these, please say something to calm my currently over-reacting "my baby's gonna get hurt!" nerves? Or perhaps tell me about weird animal friendships?
Dogs that cuddle with cats-stories? Big dog & little dog friendship stories?
Alright. I am in need of some assistance RE Surviving the Australian Outback. Basically, (I'm clueless) a work friend from England is going on an epic journey across Australia and up the east cost. At work we are going to be collecting money to buy a gift for him and we were thinking about a survival kit for the outback.
I dont want anything overly serious (it is supposed to be a going away gift afterall) - eg flares, big bottles of water, petrol can etc because he already has a lot of that sorted.
So far all I've come up with is Stingoes and ;) mags.....
i got a packet of chips today that has this promotional thing where you enter the code on it to a website and it gives you $1.79 to purchase any song out of their 1/4 million selection. now the thing is, is that my my itunes collection is pretty jam-packed already so i cant think of any song that i dont have, that i want.
Let's say you're a 21 year old living in your parents' home while going to school. You work two part-time jobs also, so you're not a complete moocher. On Saturday evening, you were out and on the way home, you bought yourself a Chinese food dinner (almond boneless chicken and rice, if it matters). You only ate half, so you put the other half in the fridge, clearly labeled with your name.
On a scale of 1-10, how pissed would you be if you came home from class tonight, expecting to have the leftover Chinese for dinner, only to discover that someone else in your house ate it?
Would you eat someone else's food, without asking, even if their name was on it?
A question for us not from the US. Although for those who are, feel free to join in too!
What's the last thing that made you go 'lol Americans'?
I just discovered that they're remaking the hilarious (and only 3 years old!) British comedy Death at a Funeral. With bloody Martin Lawrence & James Marsden of all people. WHY DOES THIS NEED TO HAPPEN?! *headdesk*
Stupid people asking stupid questions about taxes.
Story: My previous employer supplied our W-2s through an online service if we were employed with them at the time. I got last year's online and tried to file, but because of an error, it didn't get filed. I no longer work at the company and need a copy of last years so I can try to file it this year. How do I go about getting a copy of last year's W-2?
And now for something completely different: What's your favourite creepypasta?
What is that website called where you think of someone and the guy asks you like 20 questions and then guesses who it is? I'm only an hour and a half into my 9 hour bus ride and am bored. What should I do to entertain myself? haha
i had part of my thyroid removed in march and since then have had hypothyroidism. the last time i had my levels checked was... i believe august and everything was a-ok. i have 3 refills left for my levothyroxine at which point i will have to see a doctor for a new script. i do not have insurance anymore and i know blood tests can be really pricey. if i go to a doctor will they make me get more blood work to make sure my levels are ok or would they be able to just write me a new perscription?
eta: OR should i just use one of those sketchy online pharmacies?
So TQC, I think I feel the beginnings of a hypomanic episode coming on. Before I find myself fully in the throes of madness, will you suggest to me some great things to do with this excess of energy? Bonus points if I can do them without moving around much, since I have torn a bunch of ligaments in my back.
Alternately, what is the longest period you ever stayed up in one stretch? What did you do with your time?
Have you ever had a period of time where it seemed like you were disconnected from your body or all your senses were dulled?
I can scratch my face and I can hardly feel it. I can hardly taste anything, feel anything, or smell anything. This has been going on for 3 days. I also have a migraine (which I know is there, but is dulled for the most part since I can't feel my body). It started before I even took any medicine for the headache. What is wrong with me and how can I make myself feel again?
And this is not the first time its happened to me, although it is the first time its happened and I've gotten a migraine.

I have a neatly trimmed beard and have an interview tomorow. It's not an extremely important position, nor one I absolutely need. Do I keep it, or shave it off completely? Btw, it's a supervisor's position.
