Does anyone have kids with anxiety- how do you handle/deal with it? Help them deal with it?
I don’t get a period anymore, but would like to know where I’m at in my cycle so that I can figure out my moods and see them coming better
This my 1st time posting. I’m a father to a 4 year and a 1 year old, ever since our kids were born they have been attached. I know kids want to spend time with their parents, but sometimes my wife and I just want quality time . Even if it’s just for a night. Any ideas on getting the kids to be more independent? I hope this doesn’t sound selfish of us
I have a 3 year old and I have been exhausted since the moment I gave birth. I'm always tired and sleepy. When time permits it on my days off from work I will sleep 9-10 hours through the night but even then I feel exhausted. Does this feeling of exhaustion ever go away and when?
My husband and I have always been a little switched from the stereotypical couple. I’m the one who constantly wants sex, and my husband doesn’t feel that it’s as important as other things in a marriage. In my personal opinion, a sexless marriage isn’t a marriage. For me, sex is a way to gauge how we are as a couple. If things are good, and we are communicating well and relatively content, we ar... More
So i got my IUD in September of 2016 and I just took it out on the 5th of this month because my husband and I are going to start trying again..my question is how long should I be bleeding? I’m going on day 5 and I am starting to get super irritated. It’s heavy and nasty, I know that the IUD regulates my period to every other month and it was only 3 days long and now it is gone so should I expec... More
My doctor recommended an iron supplement, so I took the first one with dinner yesterday. Today, around 3pm, I started having bad lower stomach/abdoninal pains. The doctor warned me that it may cause constipation, so I thought it was that. Then I began having diarrehea. I feel like I have the flu. The pains come and go but I'm still experiencing this at 10pm. Has this happened to anyone? Upo... More
Two months after breastfeeding my second for nearly two years, I rushed for breast enlargement surgery. My husband didn’t want it, the two friends I spoke with also disagreed, but I went and did it and now am full of shame and regret. I was trying to claw back a little of the body confidence I had before my body and breasts stretched and sagged. 3 days post-op, I look like I have one of those... More
My son is nine and doesn’t want to leave the house. Not only that but he doesn’t want to play with toys, hang out with friends and is a lot more withdrawn than usual. This is a very new thing going on with him but he also suffers from anxiety. I feel like he’s depressed, what do you think? Should I bring him to a doctor? Therapist?
Recently, my own Dad has been facing some health issues. Very serious. I’ve been reflecting on loss, grief, “what-ifs,” and most importantly my own death. It fills me with such heartache at the thought of losing my own parents, but also should something happen to me or my husband. Is this normal? Does anyone else think about the loss of themselves and how it would impact their family? Every c... More
So, I'm attending a wedding soon. I know the traditional rules are to not wear white so I selected a pink sheath. However, I recently found out from the brides mother that the wedding dress is actually a blush pink... the same shade as my sheath. Would it still be appropriate to wear? Or should I return it?
Crazy read about how this stroller should have been recalled long ago after the front wheel kept falling off. I actually have this stroller but never got around to using it. Now I feel lucky I was lazy! https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/after-hundreds-of-crashes-this-britax-jogging-stroller-faced-recall-then-trump-appointees-stepped-in/2019/04/02/faf23c20-4c06-11e9-b79a-961983b7e0...

Looking for some information/insight on radon in homes? We’ve been living in our home in Hamden for 2 years now and the radon levels were very high when we did the inspection before moving in. We took the necessary steps to “fix” the problem at the time but it’s something that still worries us. We know that the couple who lived here for a long time before us both had cancer in recent years, and... More
Has anyone experienced or knows someone who has had silent migraines? Silent migraine has all the symptoms of a migraine without the pain. My doctor believes that’s what I have. For the last two months are so, I have been having 1-3 days of bad nausea and dizziness, which goes away, then comes back. I’m on day four of my 8th episode. During this time I’m extremely irritable and pretty depressed... More
I don't understand why my husband feels cuz he works 12 hours a day he shouldn't have to do anything for the kids my kids are 18 14 + 8 and when he gets a day off of work while he wants to do is sit around the house and still wants me to do everything and then when I do want to go have me some me time he wants me to take two other kids with me.
Okay so this is probably TMI but I really don’t know what else to do and I’m too embarrassed to call my OB yet. I am 13 months postpartum so I’m obviously cleared for sex, tampons, etc., but I haven’t done any of those things yet (I’m a single mom). I had a vaginal delivery and a 2nd degree tear in both directions and was stitched up. At my six week check up my OB said I was good to resume norm... More
