  1. Squirrel looks a little chunky, shall we talk to him about bariatric,surgery,or would it hurt his feelings?[emoji7]

    Sent from my VS880PP using BariatricPal mobile app



    I was reading one day about how people shouldn't feed them peanuts because they're high in calories and not particularly nutritious for them. Yet EVERYONE and their mom feeds them peanuts lol. I've given them goldfish but they basically give me the squirrel finger when I hand them grapes and stuff [emoji23]

  2. I survived an entire childhood riding a bike without a helmet. Hell, I'd be up and out the door in the early morning and only come back for Kool-Aid until dark. Maybe they are trying to raise children that aren't complete pansies?
    As for homeschooling, it is a growing trend, and for good reason. And I am not talking about what passes as "bullying" in the school system. Testing results are consistently higher for home schooled children. Learn at the pace most natural to the child, take tests when you are feeling physically optimal and mentally focused.
    The only thing I don't like about homeschooling is the social interaction that is missing. I don't mean seeing friends, or participating in extracurricular activities; they actually have sports and clubs usually with the other home schooled kids. But learning to work with groups of people whom you may not like or find difficult to work with. You know, real world adult situations. Many of these kids will be ill prepared to deal in those situations.


    When I was 8 or so I saw someone fall off their bike and they died! Right in front of me!

    So homeschool is hit or miss. I did an entire research study on it. One of the problems is the parents that are willing to participate in tests just so happen to be the parents that are educating beyond what is required. There are other HS kids that are extremely far behind as well. Like...illiterate at graduation. Most are completely oblivious about sexual health and sciences.

    I'd love to HS but most of the groups here are Christian. We're very atheist so that poses a problem [emoji17]

  3. My husband has been snipped but now my uterus is out of wack. I was looking at Seasonale/Seasonique just to avoid blood transfusions!

    But yeah that price sounds right if you're in the US and insurance won't cover.
    As others have said, planned parenthood or something similar. Also try GoodRX which gives coupons. Literally has been a life saver for my family

  4. I finally went to my doctor the other day after almost a year of elbow pain. She touched it and was like "yep you've got golfers elbow." Pretty funny because I HATE GOLF lol. Anyway I took a break from some exercise because the darn thing hurts like a mother (and is on my dominant hand...yaaay[emoji58])

    Anyway my arms are starting to look like literal bat arms (all skinny and crap.) Anyone got any suggestions? I'm going to physical therapy for it soon but from my understanding, these things take a long time to heal [emoji53]

  5. I suggested it because people have posted about medications. I'm switching from Zoloft to Effexor and feel pretty alone. Go to a depression forum and get crap for having surgery. Go to a lot of surgery forums and get crap for being on pills.

    I don't feel safe posting anywhere. Last post I saw on here (about lithium I believe) was met with hostility.

    It's not about sensitivity. It's about having a safe place to talk to others with a unique digestive tract and how it affects mental health treatment.
