Thomas asks…

Considering all the diseases spread at U-O-ME slacker events, how can this study be believed?

Bad hygiene is a universal turn-off, regardless of what you’re wearing. While Mark Twain famously said that “clothes make the man” (or woman, as the case may be), all the designer duds in the world won’t impress your date if you haven’t had a shower first. In fact, a recent Match.com poll asked nearly 35,000 men and women to name their biggest turn-off on a date. The responses included bad breath (11%), dirty fingernails (1%), body odor (16%) or all of the above (72%). Not surprisingly, bad hygiene is a mood killer for romance. In terms of dating economics, it doesn’t matter if you’re dressed in Prada, Armani or something from Old Navy (just make sure to wear whatever fits well and makes you feel confident). What absolutely, unequivocally matters is that you’re clean and smell good before you arrive. Brush your teeth, wash your hands, and use deodorant; for maximum marketability, always put your money where your mouth is!

Mike asks…

I think the children I watch are being abused/neglected, what do I do?

I watch 3 children regularly. They are ages 6, 2, and 3 months, all of them in diapers still (yes, including the 6 year old). When I pick them up, they all smell terrible, and they are always in dirty clothes. I do understand that children play and get dirty, but this isn't that. They come to me with clothes on that seems they have been wearing for days and diapers that are over full and leaking. When I get them, I literally give them all baths and wash their clothes. The mother tells me, when I ask about why the 6 year old isn't potty trained yet, is because "it doesn't matter". This last weekend I watched them for 4 days (from thursday night until monday night), she did not give me enough diapers for any of them except the infant. I had to go buy them myself because she refused to bring more, I had to buy more baby wipes for them, and both of the little ones had a cold and I had to buy their medicine because she forgot to give it to me and wouldn't bring that either. The 2 older boys had bruises all up and down their backs and upper thighs, the 2 year old had a TERRIBLE diaper rash (which I bought some Vaseline for), and the infant had scratches all over his face, head, hands, and stomach (i'm guessing from his fingernails being too long). Also, not once did she call or message me about how they are, or how everything was going etc. I'm not 100% sure that they are being either abused or neglected, but I wish they weren't in that situation if they are. What should I do?

answers:

Call Child Protective Services and tell them what you told here. Since they could have gotten a report from anyone, it would be pretty hard to trace it to you. It DOES sound like they are being neglected, and the bruises show they must be getting abused, too. No child should suffer from this. They are all at an age where they could not possibly do something on purpose to make their parents mad. They are just little kids. Please report them, and ask that the report be kept confidential. Mention this when you first make the call. There will be some action taken. Very good of you to notice this, to pay attention, and to want to help. This is the type of thing that makes the world a better place.

Jemima asks…

I truly and honestly hate my family.?

My father doesn't seem to care whenever something bad happens to me. Like when I have health problems, for instance. My right foot has been hurting so badly lately that I have to practically hop around on my left foot. I didn't care too much when I didn't have to go to school, but . . . now I have school. My stepmother seems to think that everything is my fault and I should be punished for other people's wrongs. She blames me for messing with the thermostat (which I didn't do), for clogging the vacuum (which I didn't do - she made me clean the living room all by myself even though my sisters made the entire mess. Then instead of thanking me for doing it, she gets pissed at me for "ruining the vacuum cleaner".) She blamed me for spilling something inside the microwave (which I didn't do). She blames me for not taking good enough care of my sister - my sister is ten years old, she can make her own freaking food in the microwave. That's just ridiculous. Then just now, she came in here and asked me where I hid my sister's phone. Why would she think that I took it. So my sister could irritate the crap out of me by asking to use my phone every five seconds? Yeah, makes total sense. My little sister has no sense of privacy or respect. She just walks in my room without knocking and has actually caught me changing a few times - not that she's learned from it. She's always wiping her dirty feet all over my bed, and she's the one ordering me around like she was born first. The worst part is that my stepmother gets mad at me if I don't listen to her daughter, and then my dad gets annoyed with me for making my stepmother yell at him about me. Tl;dr: I live with a bunch of terrible people who seem to either hate me or feel nothing but vague disgust towards me. But I digress. I don't know what to do anymore. It's gotten to the point that to keep myself from flipping out and screaming at everybody, I have to dig my fingernails into my arm until the rage passes. I've left so many scabs and marks and cuts by doing that, that I can believably pass it off as my dog getting in a fight with me. I'm still just fifteen, so I still have a while yet before I can move out. Help?

answers:

I am very sad for you . But god test everybody . I truly & honestly says that i will be very happy if i can help u . But i can't help you because i also face that problem . I just avoid my family muches i can . Most of time I hangup with my friends to avoid my family . In that way u can get rid from u r family...

Nancy asks…

boys. girls. adults. a little help?

im a girl and im 17. i have a boyfriend who i like alot... but he is never CLEAN it is disgusting! like under his fingernails and hands have always got dirt or oil or grease or just shit on them (not littererly). and i always try to be nice about it and making it obvious that i dont like him touching me when his hands are dirty but he dosnt get it. i even said to be blantly obvious. "*laughing* yukkk! your hands are gross! go clean them first!" but cause i was laughing he started laughing. normally i wouldnt care but i have a problem with at the VERY least his hands have to be clean its not that hard to wash your hands and if he cant be bothered to do that... what else dosnt he clean? .... please help. what should i do?>

answers:

Get him to help you out with the dishes Take a shower or bath with him. If these aren't options, and this bugs you this much (can't blame ya), you are eventually going to need to blatantly tell him that you are a clean person and at the very least you want his hands clean when he's touching you. You can't do it in a joking matter anymore or he's never going to take the issue seriously.

Chris asks…

How can I overcome my bum-picking habit?

I'll lie there in my pit all day masturbating over porn, getting all the sheets sticky, but then afterwards I really get my fingers dirty by fingering my bumhole because there's just nothing else to do when you've never worked a day in your life. I'll always get poo in my fingernails, and thus I have developed a nail biting problem by scraping the poo out of my fingernails, and plus I sometimes wet myself when picking my bum. I really want a girlfriend, but I haven't met any who like guys with soggy trousers yet. Please advise me :)

answers:

You really need to get a job!!! :¬)

Caroline asks…

I have a massive party on monday... what do I need to do this weekend?!?

This question sounds a bit weird, I know but here goes. I have a MASSIVE event coming up on monday. Its at a huge hotel, very very formal (I already have my dress!) but I always seem to run out of time or do things too early, so Im trying to complile a checklist of things I need to do to prepare myself for this big do. I need some help - I always seem to forget something! Sooo please give me a hand! Do you have a beauty regime you do before a big event? I dont want to forget anything ... 😀 (for example, when should I do my nails, wash my hair, face packs etc? Should I leave my hair a bit dirty If Im wearing it up? Fingernails that day or night before? shave my legs that morning? Or tomorrow night? aaaagh!)

answers:

I am the exact same way! Nails: Clipped, filed (if needed) painted day of (can do night before if your nail polish stays well.) Toenails too if your wearing open toe heels/shoes Hair wash Sunday morning/afternoon- give it some time. (not get dirty, but so it wont be too dry.) It depends on what you want to do with your hair. Face packs I say night before or morning of. Make sure it doesn't dry out your skin, if it does moisturize. Shave morning of or night before, before you head for the party put lots of lotion on. Shave underarms day of if your wearing sleeveless dress. (deodorant! If its a dance party carry it in your purse if you can) Make sure your eyebrows are done and clean! As for time, Depending on how you do your hair and much you complete the night before, I would say give yourself PLENTY of time. At LEAST 2 hours. Take things in your purse for touch-ups like deodorant, lip gloss, make up touch ups, lotion ex.) would say pack your purse the night before, and be prepared for anything! Make sure you have your accessories picked out if your going to wear any (rings, necklace, hair things) Make sure you know where everything you need is. It would be horrible if you took 30 minutes trying to find that curling iron to do your hair, or to find that one necklace you only wear for special occasions. Make sure that what your doing with your hair your positive its going to work. (one time I thought I could curl my hair a certain way for the first time and it turned out to be a disaster, I had to wet my hair and start over with something else which made me late to the party.) Hope this helps! Good luck :)

Can you help me out? Do you know any websites to look at or know of any therapists that take Medicaid- Health plus?

You are more likely to find a therapist that takes Medicaid at a local Mental Health clinic or the Department of Psychiatry at a hospital. I hope you can find the help you want. You will be less likely to find one if you are looking for a therapist in a private practice. Good Luck.

Marie asks…

Will the 18 dollar difference above the cutoff prevent me from getting family health plus?

http://www.health.state.ny.us/nysdoh/fhplus/who_can_join.htm#familysizex the limit is 200. can i somehow push it? my weekly pay is approximately 218. my next option is to enroll in the health insurance provided by my college and the state, and it costs 660 quarterly.

answers:

Yes, it will. I was only $5 a week above the cutoff, and I was denied. Healthy NY costs more, but is the only other option. The only problem I had with them was that they refused to cover doctor followups that were based on original visits I had with the Family Health Plus.

Questions And Answers On Acne Cyst Between Eyebrows

January 10th, 2016

John asks…

ARRGH I cant stop getting cysts..help please??

I dont know what im doing but i seem to just keep getting cyst pimples back to back..theyre almost always on one side of the nose or between my eyebrows...i have one on my nose-what should i put on it overnight??

answers:

What I would try is benzoyl peroxide cream from the drug store. It is what a dermatologist would prescribe to you if you had mild acne. But more likely than not, you are gonna need something systemic (ie a pill). I recommend you see a dermatologist.

Elizabeth asks…

Davina asks…

How to tell if u have cancer or a cyst?!?

i am 14, i have acne and i jus moved so dont have a doctor.about 7 or so months ago I had these moveable lumps in my ear lobs then about 4 months later I had this small lump come in between my upper lip and the bottom of my nose. I thought it was jus a pimple or part of my acne but it never came above the skin. It hurt like a pimple first coming in and got a little red. thought nothing of it and went on wit my life. then another came in in-between my eyebrows and at the same time pain on the side of my nose like a was going to have a huge pimple come in. the two of them then came "in" under my skin but again never came above my skin. I am kinda taking it lightly jus cause all these moveable lumps are coming in where I already have acne and I know cysts are normally filled with infection puss or fluids. I am pretty worried. I have done some research jus because I know I can't have a docs opinion right now because of no doctor. but I am pretty worried n would really like to know you guys' opinions if it is cancer or jus a cyst and can it turn in in to cancer or am I safe for now???

answers:

If you had done research, then you know that's part of your acne and NOT cancer, nor can TURN into cancer...

Ken asks…

Help me with my acne curse?

My acne is horrible, I've probably tried everything known to man, now im on Accutane (almost 4 weeks) and I had the initial break out, then soon after everything started to clear up, but got very dry, now I just broke out again, this time it was far worse, cheeks swolen with pimples side by side, forehead looks deformed because of it, and between my eyebrows there's so many it makes it look like one giant one, I look like a freak. I DO clean my face, but nothing helps...:( one of my sisters had bad acne, but the other didn't. Could it be genetic? This shit is really starting to piss me off.

answers:

Of course you clean your face! Lol, most people with acne have obsessive skin care routines and are way better at taking care of their skin then people without acne. Im sorry you have to go through this...i'm actually on accutane now too and i am itchy all over i cant stand it! You just gotta hang in there a couple of months but in the mean time if this breakout is really inflamed or potentially scarring you should call or email your doctor up tonight for some antibiotics or prednisone to clear up the swelling cause this sounds very painful (stress that you are in pain and your face is swollen when you tell them). Acne is influenced by so many factors and yes, it could be genetic but in the end its all a long chain of events that can basically be traced back to hormones (something like stress or even certain vitamins causes them to fluctuate); your hormones affect sebum production; sebum pushes crap through your skin, which sheds dead skin cells, which get stuck in the ducts, which causes a clog, and the clog can get inflamed and infected and then your immune system responds and turns it into a big nasty whitehead or cyst. *do NOT put toothpaste on any of your zits! I always use polysporin or neosporin (I've been on accutane before, trust me it gets better). ***oh you know another thing that helps is not eating dairy or candy or basically processed crap--even my derm told me dairy and sugar could make acne worse for a lot of people. Every time you move up a dose you breakout on tane so maybe watch what you eat and you may find that it makes your acne way less inflamed (its not even too late to do for this one).

Graham asks…

Birth control and acne?

Ok so I started on Otho tri cylen 3 days ago. I take it everyday at 10pm cause that's when I go to bed. I'm on the pill for my skin primarily. It's not even that bad, probably mild acne. I just have a million little pimples on my forehead as well as VERY persistent ones beside my nose. I also get some in between my eyebrows and on my temples. I didn't know how to get rid of them so I asked my doctor to give them to me. I took my first one 3 days ago on sunday. Today is wednesday so i've only taken 3 and right after only my 2nd pill I noticed a cyst on my chin. I used to get a cyst on my chin the week before my period but that hasn't happened in forever! So basically I already knew the cysts on my chin are hormonal and now I'm getting these doses of hormones put into me I'm worried I'll get a million more and just make my acne worse!! So my question is, will these hormones continue to give me cysts or will they "balance out"? Also how long will it take for me to see results? I'm regretting taking these pills because of this and if more come up I don't know how I'd deal! Let's just pretend I stopped taking the pills right now. Will my period go out of whack?I've also heard stories of peoples skin and hair getting super oily! But they were long term users, will this happen to me? Thank you so much! I appreciate it! I didn't ask my doctor cause I didn't know I'd get cysts lol I wasn't on the pill yet so how would I know Oh my goodness, mike hunt do you know anything about birth control? Sure you can have an allergic reaction but getting acne is NORMAL, you're messing with your body with hormones, of course there will be side effects! I'm just wondering how long it will take for my hormones to balance out. I was preferably looking for an experienced women to help me out but thank you anyways. I will go to my doctor in a month if this persists although right now it is a quick way to look for advice.

answers:

Ok so... When you went to see your doctor, why didnt you ask these questions? The people here on yahoo answers know nothing about birth control pills compared to a doctor -------------- on all prescribbed medicine (which i'm sure you're using prescribed pills).... Actually, on all medicine lables it says if any allergic reactions occur, stop use and see a doctor... Go do that instead of wasting time asking a question that will never give you any useful tips

Helena asks…

Fine bumps on my face?

I have like these fine little bumps on my cheeks and in between my eyebrows, they are really small though, i use clean and clear and witch hazel but they wont go away.

answers:

Rub milk of magnesia on it. Soak up a cotton ball with it, and rub it on like a toner. Rinse it off after a while. It changes the acidity level on your skin (which causes the bumps/acne) and clears it right up. They cure all kinds of acne... The broken pimples, the cysts, and the whiteheads too. MOM is awesome! :)

Steve asks…

Good Acne products?? Help Please?

I only get a few zits on my face once in awhile but if you look closely at my face you can see black heads and I want to know what is a good product you can buy at like foodlion walmart or kmart that works well and does not dry out your skin. I go tanning and when i do for the first few weeks i have to put on lotion and my skin breaks out a little bit and I hate it because i really can't buy a foundation because my skin color is always changing.. My face breaks out around my nose below my nose on my chin and between my eyebrows and sometimes a the top of my hair line. But just a little a few pimples. Thanks for they help.

answers:

Hi Ashley This answer is designed to better educate you on acne from a larger picture. I hope it helps you. What agravates acne? 1- Oily hair.. So stay away from oily hair products like pomades, hairsprays and keep your hair off your forehead & face, keepit pulled back or have a short hair style, maybe put it in a hair net at night as it will keep it off of your skin. 2- Skin cosmentics and suntan lotions.. So use types that do not clog pores .. Like noncomedogenic (google it) 3- Skin moisterizers on acne prone skin ..if you do feel you need to .. Make sure it is not acnegenic. 4- Washing your skin with hot water and harsh cleansers that can can further irritate your skin. ..Wash the skin gently with a mild soap or cleanser and warm (not hot) water once or twice daily. 5- Scrubbing your skin to get rid of acne, this can actually make your acne worse and promote scarring by increasing inflammation or rupturing cysts under your skin, making bacteria spread. 6- Picking your pimples or blackheads.. This can leave permanent scars. If you feel you just have to get that head out that is ready to burst.. Go gently & immediately apply a topical antibiotic to help stave off infection. 7-Stressing out. Stress can cause acne break outs, and herpie outbreaks as well. Quit worrying over the outward appearance of acne .. It doesn't make you a bad person.. Real beauty in a lot deaper than the skin. 8- Not getting enough sleep can cause stress as well so get to bed and those 8 hours in .. An nap when you feel like. 9- Poor nutrition ...everyone knows that more fruits and vegetables in your diet is more healthy.. A healthy body will heal itself. Start drinking a lot more water .. And cut out those pops. 10- No exersise.. Exersising everyday can also make you healthier and rejevenate the skin by the increased oxegen from the increased blood flow.. It will make you stronger and healthier when combined with a nutritious diet. 11- Hot humid environments.. Like poorly ventilated gyms and kitchens.. The cooking grease your exposed to can add to pore clogging... 12-Working out bacteria.. From equipment and sweat.. Bring a long some pre-wetted alcohol towlelettes to gently wipe the sweat from your face .. Back .. Hands.. Chest .. A long the work out lines ..to tight fitting work out clothes that trap moisture can cause bumps on your chest or back. .so wear lose fitting cotton attire.. In fact wearing lose fitting breathable attire always is beneficial when combating acne.. 13- Dirty make up and make up brushes.. Throw out old contaminated make up and wash your brushes regularly in soapy water .. Some quick tips.. And I am a believer in the natural approach to healing ones body, ..so go to holisticskincare dot.net.tc if you want to pursue healing your acne naturally and permanently...I'm not trying to sell you on it ..form your own opinion.. But you owe it to yourself to take a look. I really feel it can set you on the right path to permanent healing of your skin and no more acne. Last tip .. Bacteria is one of the key causes of acne, anything that keeps bacteria from touching your skin will help in acne prevention. I hope this helps you

Bob asks…

O, worshipers of Christ, we have a question?

O, worshipers of Christ, we have a question, And want an answer from your learned, If God had died by the hands of his creation, and they killed him, then what kind of God is that? And was he content by what they did to him? Then congratulations to them for getting his acceptance! And if he was not happy with what they did.. Then their power has exceeded His!! And did the universe sustain itself without a God, To listen to what the worshipers pray And were the Heavens vacant when.. he lied under dirt as it covered him?? And did the galaxies operate alone, as his hands were nailed in restriction? and did the angels dessert him? as they heard his cry and seen his pain?? and how did wood carry the lord.. tied up with his back to it..?? and how did the nails go to his level penetrating him and causing him harm?? and how did his enemies reach him?? beating and over powering him?? and did christ come back from the dead?? or did another God give him life?? and how strange of a grave to contain a God.. and even stranger a womb that carried him?? spending in it 9 months in darkness... from a chord he feeds??? and then born, a baby!! his mouth open to be breast fed?? then he eats, and drinks, and after.. he does what's natural for a human,?? and then you carry a cross.. that is a symbol of his ridicule.. and if you carry the cross for it held the lord, then why not bow to a grave... for a grave has once contained him.. O, worshiper of Christ, wake up.. for this is its beginning and this is its end...

answers:

Imaginary gods only have the power which their delusional followers give them. They shall not endure. More of us deny them every day. When we deny them, we deny them any power or influence. We have had enough of their rule. The time is at hand. We shall rise up against the idea of these tyrannical creations which have been brought forth from human ignorance and fear. We shall take back our existence and our world from the cruelty which these ridiculous propositions have been allowed to inflict upon us for far too long. Inform your gods that the time of their reign has come to an end. Their demise is imminent. We will no longer allow you to do the things to us which you have always done in their names. We will stand for it not one second longer. A line has been drawn in the sand. Here we make our stand. "Audemus jura nostra defendere" .

Mandy asks…

Opinions on this story I wrote?

I'm writing it for my best friend's birthday. Please be honest. Feel free to give tips, praise, or constructive criticism. I'm 13. Thank you! I woke up to the sound of birds chirping. It was pleasant; a slight grin drew on my face. I felt the mild, comforting sunlight warming my damp body. I lay there for a few seconds more, absorbed in bliss. I opened my eyes and felt a sharp, stinging sensation. It hurt to just look up at sky. I could tell by the tall, amber grass that surrounded by body that I was in sort type of field. It stretched far above my head, enveloping me from plain sight. I propped myself up on one elbow. Above me, I could make out a captivating tangerine colored sunset. Dark clouds lingered over a forest of trees in the distance. My head pounded. It felt as if someone was hitting me over the head with a hammer over and over again. “What the hell?” I mumbled as I shot back down under the grass. The soil was damp and cold. My sore eyes and head continued to ache nonstop. I stared down at myself. My skin looked tan and filthy. I was covered in dirt. Light freckles were sprinkled across my thin forearms. On my feet were a pair of luxurious-looking black high heels. I wore a satiny turquoise-colored dress that extended into ruffles at my knees. I didn’t recognize these clothes. “Is this my body?” I inquired. I realized that I was talking out loud, even though I was clearly alone. My voice was girly and soft, but it had a raspy southern touch to it. I reached up and patted my hair. Grabbing a lock, I pulled it in towards my face. It was a long and wavy, it reached down to my stomach. The color was a platinum blonde (I highly doubt it was natural) with hot pink tips at the end. Feeling hopeless and unsettled, I wrapped the hair around my pointer finger and twirled it, starting from the end and slowly working my way up to the root. And that’s when I felt blood. “Blood?” I shrieked. “Why am I bleeding?” Suddenly, I became painstakingly aware of it all over my body. It had dripped down the sides of my face and was now dried on my shoulders, arms, and chest. I tasted the crude, bitter taste in my mouth. Smoothing my tongue around, I felt it between my teeth. Turning my head on both sides, I saw a pool of blood surrounding my body, drying into the soil. I tried to sit up, only to be engulfed in a wave of nausea and dizziness. I collapsed into the pool of my own blood once again. I began to hyperventilate. In, out, in out. My breaths were short and labored. I tried to sit up, only to be engulfed in a wave of nausea and dizziness. I collapsed once again. I needed to distract myself, or I feared I would throw up – or worse. Desperately, I threw my hands out in front of me. “What nice hands I have.” I admired their dainty, feminine shape. “Are these really my hands?” The manicured nails were an appealing turquoise color that perfectly matched my dress. I probably had them done in a nail-salon. Bothered by a red speck on my index finger, I peered under the nails, exposing cake in dried blood. I didn’t hold back “WHO AM I?” I screamed at the top of my lungs. My voice pierced the air and echoed, startling the flock of birds nearby. I heard a dozen wings flapping as my vision faded to black. Hopefully, if I wake up, things will make sense. I leaned over on my side and passed out. ****TYPO***!!! (Important) I didn't mean to say nausea and dizziness twice, or collapsed twice!

You should go on this website :) It's called the Young Writers Society and I go on it all of the time 😀 http://www.youngwriterssociety.com (Look for Emmzziee 😉 ME!) xD!!! (PS. And as for your story, I loved it. It's very original, and the fact that I can't see any spelling mistakes or anything, well (Even though I'm MEGA tired 😀 this is excellent, especially for somebody your age.) :) You might get to be some kind of... Famous author one day 😀

Steve asks…

Honest opinions on the beginning of the story?

I'm writing this story for my friend's birthday. We both love writing stories. Please tell me if you like it, but I'm open to any constructive criticism. It's about a girl who has amnesia (total memory loss). I'm 13 years old. I woke up to the sound of birds chirping. It was pleasant; a slight grin drew on my face. I felt the mild sunlight warming my damp body. I lay there for a few seconds more, absorbed in bliss. I opened my eyes and felt a sharp, stinging sensation. It hurt just to look around. I could tell by the tall, amber grass that surrounded by body that I was in sort type of field. It stretched far above my head, enveloping me from plain sight. I propped myself up on one elbow. Above me was a tangerine colored sunset. Dark clouds lingered over a forest of trees in the distance. My head hurt like crazy. “What the hell?” I mumbled as I shot back down under the grass. The soil was damp and cold. My sore eyes and head continued to ache. I stared down at myself. My skin looked tan and filthy. I was covered in dirt. Light freckles were sprinkled across my thin forearms. On my feet were a pair of luxurious-looking black high heels. I wore a satiny turquoise-colored dress that extended into ruffles at my knees. I didn’t recognize these clothes. “Is this my body?” I inquired. I realized that I was talking out loud, even though I was clearly alone. My voice was girly and soft, but it had a raspy southern touch to it. I reached up and patted my hair. Grabbing a lock, I pulled it in towards my face. It was a long and wavy, it reached down to my stomach. The color was a platinum blonde (I highly doubt it was natural) with hot pink tips at the end. Feeling hopeless and unsettled, I wrapped the hair around my pointer finger and twirled it, starting from the end and slowly working my way up to the root. And that’s when I felt blood. “Blood?” I shrieked. “Why am I bleeding?” Suddenly, I became painstakingly aware of it all over my body.

EDITED VERSION: I was awoken by the sound of birds chirping. It was pleasant; a slight grin drew on my face. I felt the mild, comforting sunlight warming my damp body. I lay there for a few seconds more, absorbed in bliss. My eyes opened slowly, letting in cracks of mellow sunlight. Immediately, I was jolted by a sharp, stinging sensation. It hurt just to look around. Judging by the tall, amber grass that surrounded by body, I concluded that I was in sort type of field. It stretched far above my head, enveloping me from plain sight. Propping myself up on my left elbow, I gazed up at sky for a moment. I was shocked by captivating tangerine sunset above me. Dark clouds lingered over a forest in the far distance. My head pounded mercilessly. It felt as if someone was hitting me over the head with a hammer over and over again. “What the hell is going on?” I mumbled. I didn’t recognize any of this bizarre scenery. The last thing I remember doing was…Was...I racked my brain for any sort o for any sort of past-experience. But for some reason, I couldn’t. My memory was fuzzy. I’m so tired. Frustrated, I sighed and dug my fingers into the dirt. The soil around me was damp and cold, a total contrast to the sunny weather How long have I been out here? My sore eyes and head continued to ache nonstop. I stared down at myself. My skin looked tan and filthy. I was covered in dirt. On my feet was a pair of luxurious-looking black high heels. I wore a satiny turquoise-colored dress that extended into ruffles at my knees. Around my neck hung a silver necklace ending with a simple heart-shaped diamond. I must be loaded, I concluded with a small nod. I didn’t recognize these clothes either. “Is this my body?” I inquired, feeling my arms and hands. I realized that I was talking out loud, even though I was clearly alone. My voice was girly and soft, but it had a raspy southern touch to it. I reached up and patted my hair. Grabbing a lock, I pulled it in towards my face. It was a lon for any sort of past-experience. But for some reason, I couldn’t. My memory was fuzzy. I’m so tired.

answers:

Overall I think you write well but this isn't perfect, as is to be expected. Let me go through your story and point out what I personally think could be tweaked. "Above me was a tangerine colored sunset." This sounds awkward to me, as if a sunset is literally hanging above you as you lie there. Perhaps you could say it surrounded you, or just say that the sky was tangerine. "Tangerine colored" is unnecessary as well. Just say "tangerine." "Dark clouds lingered over a forest of trees." Omit the "of trees." Most forests are composed of trees and that phrase is unnecessary. "My head hurt like crazy." I think you could describe this more vividly and precisely. "as I shot back down under the grass." What does this mean exactly? I thought you were lying in the grass to begin with. "Light freckles were sprinkled across my thin forearms." This is very confusing at first because I was wondering why you were mentioning that you had freckles. It seemed totally irrelevant. Try to include that the freckles seemed out of place to you so the reader isn't left confused. "On my feet were a pair" should be "On my feet was a pair" because pair is singular. "It was a long and wavy" should be "It was long and wavy" (I highly doubt it was natural) should be omitted. Instead describe the hair directly as looking dyed. "I tasted the crude, bitter taste" You need to change one of the taste words as it sounds awkward. "In, out, in out." I think this is unnecessary. Everyone breathes this way, even if they aren't hyperventilating. I don't understand why she is so concerned about not throwing up. If I found myself in a new body in a strange place, I would be worried about that, not about vomiting. "an appealing turquoise color" Emit the word "color." "Hopefully, if I wake up, things will make sense." I am confused why this changes to present tense. If it's dialogue, it needs quotation marks. Also, I am confused why she freaks out over seeing blood everywhere and then suddenly admires her dainty hands. It seems bizarre. Well that is what I see as needing tweaking. I always encourage writers to read passages aloud to themselves to help them fix awkward constructions. Good luck with your writing! 😀

Don asks…

What do you think of my story/writing style?

This is just the very beginning of a story I am writing. It hasn't been edited or even read over (I really hate editing). This is just me writing without stopping to think or make corrections. You don't really need to critique the actual plot (mostly because there isn't really anything happening yet). I would just like suggestions on how to improve my writing style. Also, just out of curiosity, can you tell what is happening in the story, when did you figure out? I woke from my slumber and stared blankly into the darkness of the night. I squinted my eyes but the darkness was too thick for me to see through. I felt dizzy and nauseous. I was so tired, it felt like i had not slept for days. I tried to recall what had occurred before my dreamless sleep, yet i found that there were no memories in my head. Just a blank slate. It was like i didn't exist. I only knew about the world, i knew nothing of myself. It was like i did not exist outside of this darkness, the world raged on whilst i slumbered. I waited patiently for my memories to return to me, thinking i was just stunned from waking. I tried so hard to remember my name but it just would not come to me. I lifted my hands off my chest and massaged my temples, it was only then that i realized the amount of pain i was in. My head was throbbing and all of my muscles were aching. I reached out for a candle, hoping that when the light came flooding in so would my memories, but my hand hit a wall just inches from where i lay. I rolled over onto my side and found that one shoulder hit the ceiling while the only was still resting on the floor. I slowly felt around and discover that there was a wall at every side, closing me in a very tight-fitting box. I pushed lightly against the padded walls and they let out low moans, but would not budge. I slammed my fist against the ceiling in anger, hoping maybe i could break free from my prison. I tired to call out for help but i could not make any noise. It was such a strange sensation, there was something different than other times when i could not speak. My throat was not dry or soar, but i ignored it, I had no time to focus on little things. I started scratching through the soft fabric on the walls. Pieces fell onto my face until i reached solid wood. I knocked three times and listened intently for some sign of life. At first i hear nothing at all, but then there was a quiet noise. It was like raindrops falling on a roof. The first image that came to mind before i could stop it was hundreds of bugs writhing around in dirt. I shuddered at the thought of bugs running up my body. I quickly pushed the image out of my mind before my imagination got away and made matters worse. I have yet to write the paragraph that goes here I still had no idea where it was that i lay. I just wanted to get out, to be free. I scratched at the wood above me. My nails started the scrape off a top layer of the surface. Small splinters fell onto my body and got lodged in my fingertips and under my nails. It stung so badly, but i just kept scratching. I tired to ignore the pain that i felt throughout my entire body and i just kept tearing away at the box. Tears started to well up in my eyes. I tired to stop them but i just couldn't. They built up and started pouting down my face and soaking into the fabric beneath me. I wiped my tears away with my now bloodied hands, but those tears were soon replaced with more. I took a deep breath in but soon let that same air out again with a bloodcurdling scream. It was so loud, it was like no sounds could leave the box. I took in another breath and felt a ripping sensation go through my lungs. My tears stopped despite my pain. I listened closely as i had heard a new sound. It was like a hissing noise every few seconds. I was sure that i had not heard it until after i had screamed. I was breathing. Had i not been breathing that entire time? I listened again, but for a different sound this time. I closed my eyes and focused. I heard nothing inside of me. I held my hand to my chest but there was no beating of my heart. My heart had stopped, but for how long? Why was i still living? I pushed against the wall above me, but my arms were too weak. I desperately wanted out, i didn’t want to die. I flipped over onto my stomach and pushed my back against the top wall. I heard a cracking. I stopped at first, alarmed by the noise, and i wasn't sure if i should carry on. I waited a few moments to see if i could hear anyone, but when all was quiet i continued. I felt a light tickling in my hair and on my hand. The air suddenly smelt damp and earthy. Dirt. Dirt was falling on me, little by little. I was underground. If i lowered my back the entire thing would collapse and i would be buried in dirt. The weight on my back seemed to increase when i realized where i was. The smell of the dirt was all around, it was damp and cold. I could hear those raindrop-like noises again all around me. Scampering away. I was deep in the ground. I could tell by the smell and the sounds. I could judge the distance somehow. I closed my eyes and took deep breaths.

answers:

Seems like a very good story the begining is perfect wanting you to know more not telling to much. Som small errors that you can fix if you read through it other then that great and good luck with your storie. My guess so far is that he is buried in a semetary and is either a vampire or some sort of zombie.

Lisa asks…

Does this dream mean anything at all?

I dreamed that 1 finger from each of my hands was trapped under the railing on train tracks and I was in the middle of the tracks. I looked up and I saw a train coming towards me about to hit me. I somehow managed to pull my fingers free and fell backwards out of the way of the train. I looked at my fingers, expecting to see my nails bloody from having been yanked out from under the tracks but they were only slightly scratched. Then as I got up to walk away I suddenly realized I was an old man and had the body to travel to different bodies when I wanted to. So I began walking down this path way with people on it out of my body and I turned around and saw people looking at my body in a wheel chair. I raised up my fingers to return to it but suddenly the body of the old man moved and I realized that I must not have left my body and I was somehow young once more. Then I decided to walk back to where I had landed before and remarked how I was glad I hadnt been run over by the trains and that I just hoped I wouldnt have to die that way, grinded into the dirt by an unstoppable force. Someone near me said something to the effect of dont think youve escaped it yet, and I looked up and I saw the train veer off the tracks and come right for me. I started running and tried to avoid it but it followed me relentlessly. Before anything else happened I woke up. What does this mean? Im not particularly scared of trains, I actually used to love them as a kid. I dont know where the old man thing or the ability to switch bodies thing came from either. Ah I thought as much, thanks zosh. Anyone else? Since I have received more replies than I thought I would I will try to share what I think some of the things might mean. When I was trapped under the tracks I felt scared and it was almost as though I was looking at my own death coming towards me. I somehow managed to avoid it possibly through will power or just luck and got out of the way just in time. I am unclear as to what this means as I havent really faced death as far as I know. The part about me being an old man makes sense because I was pretty sick for a few months and it felt like I was an old man in mind and body, even though I am still pretty young (approaching 20). I dont understand what the switching bodies meant, but it could mean empathy as one person suggested. Returning and having the train try to run me down after I had avoided it is unclear to me in its meaning as well.

answers:

Switching bodies means that you are looking through someone else's eyes (empathy with a significant adult), and the trapped by a train, and escaping it means you will solve a problem. It's not solved yet, but you will solve it. It might involve an older person, adult, teacher, parent or someone like that.

Kirstie asks…

i think theres something wrong with me...help? (nightmare)?

when i have a nightmare i wake up and feel odd,but im fine. nightmare:it involved my mother killing people and burrying them in my house.then,she got killed and my WHOLE family was dead and burried under my house and outside. the floor of my house was dirt in the dream. and me and my sister were left. in the dream i was literally scared to DEATH! there was also a dead girl in the kitchen and a dead guy nailed to the door. im scarred of dead people so it really scared me.i had to walk knowing that dead people were under the floor 2.in the dream i called my dad (divorced parents) to tell him what happened and to ask if we culd live with him but he laughed and hung up.i was stuck in the house with my sister...alone. i woke up extremely shaken. all day i've been hearing things,seeing people.my mind is going CRAZY!im scarred to be alone now,i can't go near things with gaps under them,i cant stand silence,go near closed doors or the bed. whats wrong with me can i do sumthin bout it? is this normal????

answers:

First of all, depending on your age this could be triggered by hormones going crazy. Do you feel like your Dad abandoned your family (could explain the laughing), or that your Mom caused the divorce? Did you watch a horror movie or read a scary book? There are a lot of explainations for dreams and what individual items or events in the dream mean. If you're interested in researching that, you can Google "dream dictionary" and come up with several different options. In short, you're not going crazy. It's just a goofy, albeit disturbing, dream and your fears associate with it are just your imagination running away with you. It'll be alright. :-)

Charlie asks…

Would you read my book and tell me what you think?

I texted back and slipped it back into my bra and got off the bed, and walked into my huge closet. I got out a black cami and black skinny jeans and a pair of black converses. I put them all on except for my shoes, and went and lay on my bed. I woke up cold on the ground in a dark forest, the sun barely starting to fall behind the trees that surrounded me, like a wall. I got up, shivering violently. My black cami and skinny jeans weren’t giving me much cover, they were thin and baring. My feet were like ice cubes against the cold mud floor of the forest, covered in a thin layer of twigs, grass, and pine needles, the night sky dawning on me quickly, the sunlight waning away. The trees surrounding me were a mix of silver fir and evergreen pine trees. I walked forward, pulling back a few branches, enough for me to walk under. I could feel the sap sticking to my hands, I tried brushing them along my thighs but I couldn't get it off. I kept walking through the trees, eventually I found a dirt road. I followed the thin tracks of many automobiles tires. They went on for a mile or two, a lone little white bunny started hopping across the road, trying to go fast as I started approaching it I noticed it was limping and couldn't get anywhere. The path slowly widened into a wide dirt circle on the edge of a cliff; I saw that in the middle there was a lone tree with 3 big rocks surrounding it, as if it were a wall made for the tree. The underbrush was clinging to my feet with the sap and as I walked out to the tree and ran my hand down the lone weeping willow’s trunk, feeling the roughness and the way the trunk’s bark split as it ran up. I walked over to the edge of the cliff, and sat on the weak wooden fence. Feeling it bow under my weight, the thin rail in the posts were rickety and splintering, their dark color contrasted with the little grass on the edge of the pit and the dusty brown dirt that covered the whole acre land that led up to the large crevice in the ground. I saw the other edge and my edge go down really far, so far that I couldn’t tell where the end of the pit was. Maybe this is the way out of this awkward place. I thought. I jumped out, off the fence and ledge, out into complete oblivion, just falling, just to see if this pit had a bottom or if it went to the middle of the earth or some other extreme thing. I felt my clothes billow up, like a balloon being blown up. I looked up at the ledge of the cliff, I saw tree’s branches poking out, I sort of wished I could reach up and grab one, to hold on to it. The wind blew through the branches and making the evergreen arms move in a way that made them look as if they were laughing at my stupidity. I opened my mouth and tried to yell for help, nothing came out. I felt a sharp pain hit me in the back and up though my chest; I looked down and saw a sharp stake like rock poking out of my chest, a stalagmite. I clawed at my chest, trying to make the shooting pain, the horrible scream inducing pain, go away. If I couldn’t scream, and the pain wouldn’t go away, might as well make death come faster, I pressed my long nails into my chest, pushing them through my thin skin, crying in pain, trying to scream again, I couldn’t, I felt warm rich blood seep around my fingers, my vision was fading, starting in blotches of blue and purple and red covering my vision, then my vision closed in black from the outside in.

Questions And Answers On Why Do I Wake Up With Dirty Fingernails

November 3rd, 2015

Alana asks…

What do you think of this, and which one is the best?

My story beginnings. I'm not going to post the whole thing, because only I can finish them 😉 Also, how do you think I can improve? I am 13, and have written literally DOZENS of songs and stories. This isn't my best, I wrote it a few minutes ago. I write realistic fiction, romance, action, suspense, mysteries (murders) teen/girl stories...etc.. Which one do you think is better? I wrote these when I was 12/13 The rain distorted the image outside the glass window, huge drops rolling the window pane. She stared off into space, wishing that she could just close her eyes and never wake up. Once she had been the epitome of beauty and health. All that she could see now in the cracked, shattered mirror in her hands was a twisted, ugly image. The glass cut her hands, blood leaking out of her body like the rain that streaked the window. But that was nothing compared to the deep remorse and anguish she felt inside her soul. Nothing could ever dull that pain. Nothing except more pain. No one could ever find out what she had truly become. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- She held her breath, trying not to flinch as the icy waters consumed her. At first the plastic garbage bin sank, but then slowly started bobbing to the surface, then sinking. Only the slowly moving waters kept her afloat. There was a sound of a motorboat speeding away, and she desperately tried to push on the top of the lid of the bin, which was already filling with water, sinking her to the bottom. The lid finally gave way, and she kicked away the bin and the weeds tangling her legs, pulling her down. Choking and gasping, she rose to the surface, arms flailing, blindly groping around for something to grab onto. There was a rotting log nearby, and she reached for it, digging her fingernails into the wet wood. Snow was beginning to fall, covering her body with little white flecks. She shivered, trying to swing her leg around the log. When she failed, she held onto the wood, trying to scream in a hoarse voice, her frost bitten lips cracked and bleeding. The log drifted down through a smaller stream, which she hoped would take her down stream where someone would find her. The waters were thawed out ice nearly frozen, and she knew in a few minutes she would succumb to hypothermia. Icicles were forming from the moisture on her nose and hair, and her whole body was numb. If she didn’t die from the freezing cold, surely she would from the searing pain from the gash in the side of her abdomen. Red spots started dancing in the back of her eyes. I’m hallucinating, she thought. She had known she was going to die. Then why was she trying so hard to hold on? She felt her frozen fingers slip from the log, but her hands were too cold to try to grab it again. The slimy seaweeds grabbed at her ankles, pulling her to her death. At first she struggled and tried to kick at the weeds, but it only tangled her more. And she was too weak and useless to do anything but give in to the blackness surrounding her......................... And it gets better from there 😉 The second one is one in a series called "Ice" "Fire" "Earth"...etc.. OMG...yeah, people think I'm weird, because another story, it starts out as someone's falling off a bridge, plunging...etc.. But I have some happier, more optimistic stories for pre-teens/teens. I gave up on acting. It's not worth it, and there are too many (mediocre) actors in the world. I might be able to do singing if I can get better at preforming. Anyway, I just write these stories for fun. Haha...some parts are REALLY bad. Really? What book? I bet they have a similar thing in a lot of movies too. I can try to change it. What was supposed to happen next, was that this little girl, Katie, skates across the pond, falls, skids, and sees her body. That was to Troy k It's really hard to publish things, I can only write well if I have an assignment (like English), otherwise I have a hard time finishing things. Plus I'm only 13, and I would never want my face huge on the back of book club books. They always make the people look wrinkly and wearing cheap lipstick! I will try to come up with more original stories. It's just that every story has already been written worth knowing!

answers:

Hey babe this is gonna sound totally corny but you remind me SO much of myself when i was ur age (haha which was only 3 years ago but really its a lifetime) i was also a give up actress, id wanted to be one my whole life and then realised "hey this is actually kinda silly, fame is fleeting and so outa reach" but im VERY into my writing as i can see you are. Ur also obviously very proud of it which is an awseome thing. Well done on being brave enough to put it up for ppl to crit. When i was 13 my writing style was very similar to yours (haha except i think yours is better than mine was back then).. Ok now here comes the honesty.. Im only 16 but iv really lived a lotta stuff and iv learnt a lot about writing, so im able to be very realistic about yours) for your age your imagary is amazing, but has potential and a lot more room to improve you have mastered a certain skill that a lotta teenage writers havnt which is the use of a strong verb. Iv read so many crappy stories with strings and strings of adjectives that end up sounding very forced and ckumsy. You however use excellent verbs which makes a piece so much more powerful and descriptive. Ur vocab is very comendable although i also think that with age you have potential to improve this ok, heres your main problem, i used to do this and when it was pointed out to me it seriously SERIOUSLY improved my writing you need to avoid cliches... Phrases such as "She stared off into space" or "Choking and gasping, she rose to the surface, arms flailing, blindly groping around for something to grab onto" this is simply because they are used so often and make the description fall very flat and ruin the affect of the writing. Originalty is what grasps a reader because every scene or action is unique and therefore requires a far more unique descripyion "with his golden hair and ocean blue eyes" would be far more affective as lets say (excuse if it isnt realy good um just trying an example) "his hair was the type of gold that reminded me of the last droplets of sunlight dappled slicing through the dirty glass of my window, and was perfectly contrasted with his icey blue stare" u also sound a little contrived at times still very talented i would really love to talk to you some more,, i promis im not a creepy pedofile from some unknown middle eastern country who want to rape you please contact me on complicated1493@yahoo.com i would love to read more and to get ur opinion on some of my stuff i think we might have a loy to talk about gosh this message is long and i havnt even answered ur question! I prefer the imagary and description of the first one but the second one is more of a unique scene. I would say develop the second one with the creativity and talent of the first

Mark asks…

10 POINTS !! ending to my short story?!?

for my English coursework we were given a title 'Story of an hour' and we have to write a short story by working with this title. This is what i have written so far : “NO!!!” Too late. My desperate shriek to stop the inevitable failed; it had slipped through my fingers. The sun had risen, and the bright blinding light had me squinting. Morning again, I wasn’t ready. I opened my balcony doors and went back into my room which was a mess, dirty clothes, papers, coffee cups, I was a mess. I only had about half an hour to get to college, so I began my usual routine. I washed my face and brushed my teeth; I put a quiet amount of makeup on and got dressed, picked my bag up and left. “Morning!” Yelled the rough looking cab driver. “Good morning, will you please take me to Crown College.” I replied heavily, my eyes already drooping, like I said, I wasn’t ready. “We’ll be there in 10,” he shouted back at me. I sat there in silence experiencing the city. I saw the big flashing signs, the tall tree like buildings, the millions of people walking like a pack of ants charging at their food. The driver stopped at a traffic light and turned back to look at me. “Are you alright there?” “I’m not ready,” I murmured softly. He hesitated at first, but then decided it was best to leave me alone. I wondered what impression he had about me now, probably thinks I’m crazy. We reached and I gave the man his money and headed in the college. I climbed up the wide structured stairs and watched people around me swarming and passing by. I walked straight ahead and bumped into strangers I made no excuses or apologies I just kept walking. Finally I reached the door to the journalism room. ‘YOU’RE NOT READY!’ My inner voice shouted in my brain. This began to slowly upset me as I turned the handle to open the door. The room was empty; I sighed loudly in relief and took a seat. As I waited for Jack to appear I took in the habit of biting my fingernails. I tapped my feet and played with my hair. A few more minutes now and he’d be here. I closed my eyes and counted back from 10 to calm down. 10, 9, 8, 7, Breathe out, 6, 5… “You’re here!” I jumped and let out a little squeal. Jack rushed to me holding my hands and squeezing them. “I’m so sorry; I didn’t mean to make you jump. Are you alright?” I let my head fall down into his chest and began to sob. “No.” “Don’t worry, we can fix this. I promise you will be fine.” I pulled myself off him and looked into his eyes; his mousy brown hair was a mess going in all directions, the sun had let all his freckles show, and his chocolate brown eyes melted as I looked into them. I wasn’t ready. any ideas for an ending or even a middle ? Thank you for saying that /: what is wrong with it ? I wrote this out on Microsoft word I am pretty sure that it would have let me know what grammar mistakes I was making. And those aren't good enough endings I want something life changing. Thank you, I'll take all of that into consideration. It would help if some other people gave different points of views. But I'll see, I like the passing out one. xo

answers:

Your grammar is appauling. Check your work before you go any further! Where your grammar is bad: "I walked straight ahead and bumped into strangers I made no excuses or apologies I just kept walking." There should be commas here. "I replied heavily, my eyes already drooping, like I said, I wasn’t ready." The second comma should be a full stop. These are just two examples. Don't rely too much on spell checker! Life changing things that could happen: -I'll stick to my medical stuff: she passes out. When she wakes up in hospital, she is told she is terminally ill. -She could be offered a place in a different, better college on scholarship, but she'd have to ditch her old life. -She could be dropped from the college because of her poor grades.

Moth Infestation - Please Help!?

I just moved into an apartment three weeks ago. The stairway walls leading up to my front door have moths all over them. There are no holes in my walls, I keep my front door closed, I have no grain containers open, all my spices and food products are either refrigerated or sealed tight, I have no pets, I keep my windows closed, my apartment is very clean, no dirty dishes, and I take out the trash everyday. Where are they coming from? I am killing at least 4-5 a day. I'm exhausted, and I just moved in two weeks ago. I tried moth balls and couldn't breathe myself, then I tried filling little cloth bags with lavender, peppermint and rosemary; placing the little bags throughout the apartment. I suffocate myself with a stick of incense once a week as well. Have I overlooked anything? What are they attracted to? I have nothing out that they want! For God's sake, this apartment is less than 500 square feet!! I can't sleep at night, I have these waking nightmares that they're flying around my face while I sleep. Can anybody please help me? And yes, the landlord is aware. She says she can't treat the just one room, she'd have to treat the entire apartment, which means having everyone out of the apartment while they treat. There are other tenants that don't find it necessary, have pets, and don't want to have their place treated. I might just be out of luck on this one. Thanks to all who respond:)

answers:

The moth species that attack pantry foods are a very small moth, if your moth is larger than your pinky fingernail you have an outside moth getting in, which will be just a seasonal thing...treating the exterior area near the door entrance outside can be a help getting rid of them quicker...if you feel it is a small moth, the clothes moths are also a very small moth so make sure that if you have an animal hair issue to look for...rug..tapestry..stuffed animal etc If you feel it is a pantry moth, anything from grain or nut can be an issue, even acorns put in a wall by a squirrel edit: an exterminator can treat one apartment in a building...can treat 1 room in an apartment...can treat 1 window in one room in one apartment....moths from inside an apartment can be treated with zero insecticides, just locate the food source, but what you are describing sounds like an outside moth getting into the hallway outside your apartment in which that too can be treated without bothering any tenants

Jim asks…

which shampoos question?

anyone know any shampoos that don't contain methylparaben or any other type of paraben?

answers:

Parabens are known endocrine disrupters that are not only detrimental to human health, but also destructive to animal hormones and development. Studies have found higher levels of parabens in tumors from human breast tissue, but, because the potential damage to the endocrine system has yet to be proven, the controversy surrounding the toxicity of parabens is still being debated.

I've used sulfate shampoo & toothpaste for ages! The reason for my healthy silky, shiny, soft & smooth hair then. But avoiding everything, we won't have a life would we? Everyone is preaching buy organics. But Google organics, they are confusing, too! Gives me headache every time I read something, but people keep buying supplements which are being shipped from China, that are also causing us health problems. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients. Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, HAIR LOSS, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11. Natural hair means no relaxer, no chemical to straighten your hair out, no styling heating tools. The way it grows out your root, that’s the way you rock it. CARE: 1. Washing less often, builds the natural oil your hair needs, to get them smoother, shinier, silkier, softer. Man-made products are just temporary, until you wash them again, and at the same time washing off the natural oil your hair NEEDS. Hair products just absorb on your hair if they're dry, like a sponge. Shampoo & condition is all you need. Jessica Simpson have figured it out, she said she wash her hair every week. She used to abuse her hair, then start selling hair extensions because her hair starting falling from all the chemicals, but she woke up and found out how to keep her hair healthy AGAIN. When you wash your hair with one of those nutrient-rich shampoos or conditioners, most of the nutrients and active ingredients in the product don’t actually end up in your hair, they wind up down the drain… along with all the money you spent on the shampoo. It is HOW you use to style your hair or what styling tools that damage the hair, and what chemicals you're adding to the hair, not the shampoo or conditioner. 2. If you want your hair soft, you can briefly blow dry it, set them in curlers or pin curls them, blow dry, let them cool off, take the curlers &/or pins, finger tousle the hair or brush lightly to style. They will be silky & soft & shiny (for straight hair). 3. Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. On a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2" scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won't speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it's growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling. DIET: If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all. Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results. Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . . WHAT INGREDIENTS NOT ALLOWED IN COSMETICS:

Graham asks…

Is it ok to "pimp" out your 4 year old kid?

I thought "the Americans" where the *nuts* and crazy ones... but the Essex mums are just as bad! America has its toddler pageants where their 4 year olds get pimped out and look like paedophile fodder... well Essex has beauty parlours for kids... Some woman spray tanned her 4 year old girl AND her 6 year old son! She thought it was perfectly acceptable... Essex has the first kids beauty parlour... where your kid can have her or his eyebrows waxed and shaped, manicures, spray tans etc. . I find it all sick and perverted. Why do kids need to look like prostitutes and show girls? Why are toddlers being made to look like adults? Is this morally right? If you ask me it all about GREED. Someone saw a business opportunity and are now making a hell of a lot of money. Its not right though is it? What do you think? Would you spray tan your 4 year old girl and 6 year old boy??? I ended up turning the TV programme over because i felt so annoyed and angry with the mothers who were doing it... they were such chavvs and slappers! All fake themselves! It makes me wonder what next? Boobs jobs for 8 year olds? Liposuction when your fat kid is 10 years old? Where do you draw the line??

answers:

The whole thing from beauty pageants to beauty salons and designer clothes for children is sick. Children should be allowed to be children and enjoy their childhood,they are not mini adults .To me these things are abuse of children and anyone letting their children indulge in them should be treated as an a buser. They are robbing the children of thos e important formative years when they should be playing,learning and exploring the world.

Questions And Answers On Why Is There Dirt Under My Nails

August 7th, 2015

Lynn asks…

How do I treat a sick baby?

My daughter is almost 5 mos and last wk she took a fall off the bed so we made a trip to the ER. I did not have my car so my mother (lousy mother growing up and didn't really take care of us as we bounced around between different family members and foster care) had to give me a ride. She was not quite yet over a cold and when she got ther I told her to sanatize her hands like I always do but of course there was still loads of dirt under her finger nails. She kept kissing my daughter and I told her to stop because I did not want the baby to get sick (I mean fucking DUH!!!!!!, u'd think that would be the obvious) and she insisted she wasn't sick anymore even though I kept hearing her clear phlem from her throat. To make a long story short my daughter was sleeping a lot yesterday and she just woke up and her nose is stuffed and her eyes are watery so I know she is sick. This is the first time thanks to my lousy mother who is the same person who said to me when I first brought her home and kept caps on her head "why do you have a cap on her if she's not outside?" I told her "she's a newborn and they lose their body heat from their head.......DUH!!!" Then she goes "well I never kept a cap on all of ya'll's head and ya'll were just fine." That's just great considering we were all born within a week of eachother Nov 29, Dec 1 and Dec 8 when it was FREEZING!!!! So its just nice to know we didn't have caps on our heads.....that lady is something else I swear. Now for my question, aside from givin my daughter Tylenol and using the aspirator to unclog her nose is there anything elsei should be doing? This is my first child and the first time she's been sick so I don't know, please help...thanks a bunch. Of course I'm using Baby Tylenol and the ER is not a place where ppl go for colds. The 2 ppl who were in the room with us both had broken bones so everyone there is not sick nor was my daughter. I really think my mom is the culprit cause she kept clearing her throat and I could hear the phlem (TMI I know, sorry). She doesn't have the common sense nor that mother's instinct to protect the baby from her germs. I would never think to kiss anyone let alone a baby if I am not quite yet over a cold, that's just selfish.

answers:

Not really, you can use saline drops in her nose and we use the Vick's plug ins that put the menthol in the air. You can run a humidifier, that may help her breath a little better. But ya know, keep an eye on her, she not really be sick. My son gets cold like symptoms EVERY time he gets a new tooth. Hes 2 now and gettin a tooth with the runny nose, coughing and crabbiness.good luck.

Visitation Drama and Questions-Please Help!!!?

I have a son with my ex. I just filed a state hearing for child support and they are supposed to be working on putting him in contempt for not paying. Not too long ago he requested a review of his child support. I'm not working but my husband is 7 days a wk full time to support me and HIS kid. He is working and supporting him and helping me raise him but apparently has no rights? What about HIS rights to see his stepson? Why aren't those acknowledged when he takes the responsibility for a child who isn't even his blood? I'm still looking for a career after college graduation last summer. Not too long ago he sent out a visitation complaint as he has not seen my son in 2 months. My son's behavior seems to have improved by having a stable home and like my mother in law said "he knows where he's going to sleep at night". I just talked to an attorney and he basically thinks he will get visitation. My son's father is a HS dropout, lives at home with his mother who harasses me and my family with slander letters, sent postcards to my mom at work at the hospital, records conversations, etc. They are crazy. He was supposed to get charged with felony theft from listing items on Ebay that didn't exist but it got thrown out with no evidence. (Even though I know he did it after we broke up and before we were together). A detective investigating him showed me video of his mom and mom's bf driving up and down my road of where me, my husband and son live. This alone scares me as this is supposed to be private and makes me think they have kidnapping plans. My ex doesn't work and has no license (taken away for not paying support), his car got repo'd, and his mom's bf would probably pick up and drop off my son. The attorney told me I could try to make them do most of the driving being that he's not paying support and they live about 50 miles away. I wanted supervised visitation but said there is none in my county and that I'd have to pay for it and I don't trust him or his family around my son. My ex probably isn't even there with my son-when he got out of jail after my son was 6 mo's old he would sit online and ignore us and go see other women while I cared for my son alone. I think they are requesting this visitation for his mother and mom's bf (no relation to my son) and not for my ex. I'm not sure what to do and don't want my son around any of them. My ex has a history of domestic violence with me and other women. He hit me when I was pregnant and threw soap at my stomach when I was pregnant. He never worked when I was pregnant and none of his family ever contributed to the expensive costs of having a child. He has a criminal record of stalking- (had 3-4 restraining orders put on him), harassment and theft online to scam people out of money but never seems to get caught. He is also a womanizer with multiple sex partners-he even gave me an STD when he got out of jail after my son was born. (Thank God I have a real man now). I'm afraid the going back and forth from home to home thing is going to hurt my son along with the relationship with my husband (his stepdad) who I am trying to grow and build as he can sometimes take off wkends but defeats the point if my son is gonna be over there. Also my son comes home for there in filthy dirty clothes, with dirt all under his nails, and unkempt. And my mom came with me to pick him up from my ex's and the one day he was out of it in the car-didn't make eye contact, didn't acknowledge me or my mom, didn't really move at all, it was like he was drugged and I don't trust them with my son. My mom even noticed it as well and told me and I trust her opinion as an RN. I took him to the Dr. because of it but it was the next day and probably out of his system by then :-( Plus I'm afraid they will try to keep him or if we agree to switching days or something that they will try to put me in contempt. I don't trust anything about them and they are not the kind of people my son should be around. He is gonna be 3 in August and doesn't understand and plus my husband is a great dad to him and I don't think he needs such a negative role model such as my ex around him. Plus the instabilitiy of his home I think is too hard for a child his age-but my ex and them never take that into consideration. Also I have a wedding party coming up and better have my son with me as I will probably see a lot of family I haven't seen in a long time and they will want to see my son. I want to contest visitation or request it be supervised (even if I have to pay). What can I do and what are my rights? What would you do if you were me? I want my husband to eventually adopt him or at least change his name. I know visitation with them is not in my son's best interest. He is too young to understand and be able to deal with all the stress and drama. Please help. I don't have money for an attorney.

Dirt on a unwashed (for 2 months) body wont come off?

i knw this sounds gross but i went through this phase where i didnt wanna have a bath. ive bin going through for 2 months now and there's all this mucky brown/black dirt stuff on my body. how do i take it off? plz help, i wanna b clean now. i spent £35 on exfoliating products: exfoliating gloves, st ives apricot body scrub, soap and glory the breakfast scrub and moisturiser. in the shower i wet my whole body rubbed st ives into my palms and spread parts of my body left it for 1min and massaged with exfoliating gloves. after about 5 minutes my arms were really hurting and i washed it off, my skin was still the same. then i did this again and scrubbed with the gloves really hard and it wouldnt come off so i scrubbed till my skin went all red and washed it off, my arms were really hurting after this. next i used soap on my skin and gently massaged with the exfoliating gloves (in circular motion obviously) for 2 mins and washed off, still no change. after 5 mins i trie soap and sponge scrubbing still nothing changes. after i came out of the shower my skin was soft and i scratched the areas of dirt with my nails and it hurt like fk and still didnt come off. i then applied moisturiser and after another 20 mins i got baby oil and a cotton wool little pad thing and scrubbed the front of my neck in one direction, it was coming off but very slowly i scrubbed till it went all red. i stopped left for 5 mins and it looked clear. i tried the same thing to my belly and back and nothing came off so it must be dug in really deep and idk how to get it off plz help. i swear its horrible and i just want my skin colour back :( so mad and pissed off that i wasted £35 on junk. my elbows, knees, bottom part of back, chest, stomach and neck is covered with this **** and i cant take it off, the rest of my body is normal also i have what seems to be spots that look like goosebumps under the dead skin layers which is also annoying. any solutions because exfoliating didnt work? its stuck deep into my skin and looks like my skin colour but isnt... 10 pts for the right one p.s its got nothing to do with diabetes or sun burn because when i sit in the bath some of it sticks to the bath from my knees and i clean it off the bath with soap but it cant come off my skin idk why please dont say doctors or spa or anything else or that im black because im not i have light skin, on my hands, face, forearms, legs, chest etc. also exfoliating removes the dead skin cells on one layer of skin this dirt is a dozen layers underneath those layers and i need to know how to get there so be polite :)

answers:

Ignore the ignorant person who suggested using "red hot" water and staying in as long as you can. That's just damned stupid; you can get second degree burns by doing that. Regular warm bath water is sufficient as long as it isn't tepid or cold. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Loofas usually work well because they are made of dried seaweed and are stiff even when wet. They are made especially for baths. Your pores are stuffed with oil and dirt from your skin. Scrubbing too much and too hard will do more damage than good. If you take a bath every day, the discoloration will gradually come off. If you are doing everything you say that you are, all you're doing is defeating your purpose. Multiple cleansers can work against each other and cause you not to get any results. Have you considered that the crusty skin on your elbows, knees, etc., may be callouses instead of dirt? They are always a different color and thicker than your skin. Exfoliation may not be what you need although it sounds like a quick easy way to get rid of the discolored skin. Slow down and work it one day at a time, one bath at a time.

answers:

Instead of beauty products, use a washcloth even loofah sponge, EACH TIME you take a shower, using bath & body wash. You won't get result right away, in time they will, but continue protecting yourself from the sun and you won't get permanently discolored. You don't expect miracle skin to happen right away, it takes dedications! It's a LIFETIME commitment. It took a year to get there, it's gonna take another year to get them off. I guarantee!

Paul asks…

is this a good story line and should i continue? **continued from last question**?

and can you please suggest some actors/actress's? Deliah walked through the doors of Mrs. Young's room approximately three minutes late. It is not like she didn't have a good excuse, If her brothers hadn't wiped cheetos all over her white shirt, she wouldn't of had to find an old t-shirt to wear. So much for looking good. She scanned the classroom and everyone had their eyes on her. She had interrupted the speech. Great. She slid into her seat slyly and slid her eyes to Alena's book, because her being the perfect student, she would be on the right page taking notes. But, Alena's eyes were down, no notebook open, and she wasn't even in reading her English book, it was her math book. She was scrambling to finish her math homework. What? Perfect Alena Bronson scrambling to finish her homework today and not five days in advance? Then Deliah really looked at her. Her perfect body was completely hidden because of her extra large black sweat pants, zip up purple sweat shirt, and worn out uggs. Her long, bright, blonde hair was up in a messy bun, and pretty greasy too. "What what was wrong with her?" Deliah thought to herself. Deliah scanned her over again, suddenly nervous. Then she saw her nails. Her pink nail polish was chipped, with drown crust under her nails- was it dirt? It almost looked like dried blood. Why was this so perfect neighbor completely, well, disgusting? And then, all of a sudden, she looked into Deliah's eyes, and screamed such a blood curdling scream that stopped everyone's heart, but shattered hers into a million pieces. Of course, the whole class shifted their attention to the screaming Alena, who was now sobbing and shaking. She dug her nails into her palms, making them bleed. Deliah was terrified. Alena looked deep into Deliah's eyes, and lunged for Deliah. She screamed in defiance, in anger, and tried to grasp Deliah's neck. Deliah screamed, and scooted out of the way. She fell backwards in her chair, but couldn't get away fast enough. Alena got her, and beat her until Deliah was unconscious, and all the while was screaming, "You, you did this to me! Look at me! Why, why, why..." until she broke into sobs. She stepped off of Deliah and ran out of the classroom without even a glance back. Alena needed time to think. Once off school grounds she slowed to a fast walk, looking back only ever so often. She was so ashamed. She just couldn't hold her anger in anymore. What had she done last night? It was all so foggy, she just couldn't and wouldn't remember it. If she did the hurt would come back. Her life would be ruined. No more Harvard, no more million dollar career. Her dreams would be down the toilet. It was all Deliah's fault. That back stabbing bitch had ruined Alena's life, again. When they were younger, Deliah had stolen all of her friends. Alena had eventually gotten them back in junior high, and then turned everyone against her. Alena became Ms. Perfect and Deliah became no one. But this was different. Deliah had no idea what she did wrong, but Alena saw it all. She knew it was wrong. Alena was already filled with anger, and that was her breaking point. There was no turning around now. Once a criminal, always a criminal, even if no one knows. Deliah Mueller: dark hair, hazel or light brown eyes, fairly slender, tall, ***if possible freckles*** 16 or 17 Alena Bronson: long blonde hair, big blue eyes, full lips, very petite 17 or 18 my choices for the actresses would be emma roberts as delilah and sophia vassilieva for alena, how about you?

answers:

Yeah, you're actress choices are good. I can picture them there. I was waiting for this to come up :) It's really... Gripping? Luring? Yes, it makes me want to read more, of course I love it. Yes you should continue. It's a book I would read definitely. No doubts made at all, the last part is like a cliffhanger. Yep, it is to me. You're leaving me hanging loll. But I pretty much can't picture anyone else as the actresses. They fit perfectly, well in my eyes they do. You can sure pick them :P. Hope you keep going, don't stop <3 shaani xxx

John asks…

What do you think of this? its a bit long but id like to have an opinion?

This sand is thick, like gelatin. Its grip is desperate, as equally as I, try to escape its claim on me. My hands are aching, and the dirt and rock under my nails; and im clawing at the earths tantalizing solid ground. Waste deep now as i fall away slowly from the ground, the pull of the sand is intolerant, and am i trying to pull out of it but it cant wait for companionship. Lustfully, the clench is unbearable...as i try so hard to pull out it becomes savage with greed. Ive screamed and screamed and my throat is hoarse now...what fuels this hoplesness? Ive called and there are people at the circumference of this pit but as im frantic im sinking deeper, and i cant reach their offered hands. They could take a step in and reach me but they cant and they mus'nt. through this crowd, all offering their hands in support, I see a man and he calls to me, his expression seems guilty, as he calls I offer my hand frantically but his arms are crossed. I turn from him and I keep trying to reach the others hands all looking guilty, and pleading...but ive moved to close to the middle of this pit and i cannot reach. The one man speaks and I look to him and he says to me "you know we are trying our best please dont worry its not so bad" and I can only stare at him still aware of my situation and how its worse. The sand is now up to my chest as ive struggled and paid for it, i've stopped offering my hand, I can only stare at the sky away from the hands and the pleads of the people who cant enter. Im sinking now, and a woman; in a dress with hair beautifully done up, and who is made up as well, an elegant woman, sees and through minor effort bends with her hand on her knee the other outstretched and i reach, but the tassles on her long dress touch the sand which is wet and she recoils with an expression of disgust, as she tries to clean her dress i stare at her as i did the man, bewildered. Why didnt she just endure it, she could have saved me. That move cost me and the sand is now up to my arm pits and I thrust my hands up lest I get them caught. My imminent doom seems assured, they have stopped speaking amongst eachother and they withdrew their hands. the sand is now up to my chin and as I try one last time with my cruelfully normal lenghted arms, to meet a savior but there is no one, they have all left. i have taken a breath, and I am reluctant to go, but it's dark and crushing here I could only recall that mans words over and over it seemed, very solemn and frightening but I have no other choice, at least they heard my cries. I dont mind criticism, and im sorry but i dont care much for grammar or punctuation. I know some arent words, but eh, im not constrained by the laws of english..cruelfully might as well be a word, more convenient.

answers:

Sorry but this is very bad. You need to learn some grammar, punctuation, spelling and paragraph/sentence structure. Adjectives are not your friends - you should use them sparingly. You even use words that don't exist - cruelfully?? What is that? Lenghted? I don't think this is just down to spelling errors. This is you not knowing what the words are. Edit; I'm confused. You don't care about grammar/punctuation and you're happy to make up words when perfectly good ones already exist. So why are you bothering to ask for opinions? I hope you aren't planning on trying to get this published. You might not care about grammar etc but a publisher will.

Daniel asks…

Religiously speaking: Do you like my story?

The new girl was everything I despised. I looked her up and down as she sat awkwardly eating her sandwich, mayonnaise dripping down her shirt. A feeling of disgust overwhelmed me; she really was the epitome of ugly. Tight braids, glasses and absolutely no style, I don't know how she had the guts to leave the house. I pried my eyes away from the ugly girl and focused my attention on more important issues – my party. “Amber, do you know what you are going to wear yet?” questioned my best friend Claire. “Not much,” I replied, smirking, and it was true. The sexy little black number I had picked out really didn’t leave much to the imagination, and that's the way I liked it. I heard a meek cough above me and looked up, there to my surprise stood the ugly girl. “Hi, my name is Sarah,” she said as she pushed up her glasses and thrust out her hand. I stared at her hand, it was covered in mayonnaise and dirt was hiding under every nail. Did she honestly expect me to touch that? I looked up at her face and remained silent, hoping my glare would scare her away. It didn't seem to faze her. “I was wondering if I could sit with you and your group,” she stated, as if she was equal to us. This thought made me giggle, the laughter soon began spilling out of my mouth and I made no attempt to stop it. The big goofy smile that was once plastered across Sara's face was now beginning to fade. “What makes you think you have any right to look at me, let alone talk to me?” I asked, repulsed that she was within once metre of me. I could see tears beginning to well up in her eyes and it brought me great pleasure. “I feel sorry for you because you are ugly, but I feel even sorrier for myself because I have to look at you, now run along you are making me feel sick.” I said as I flashed her a smile, sealing the deal. As she turned and stumbled away I could see her the tears beginning to rack her body with shudders. Ah, satisfaction. The days passed quickly as everyone waited in anticipation for my huge party. The word had spread like wild fire and everyone who was anyone was invited. Finally Saturday was here. I looked at myself in the mirror, beautiful was the only word that came to mind. Long flowing blonde hair, sparkling brown eyes, perfectly tanned skin and to top it all off, my sexy black dress. I shot a glance over to Claire who was getting ready in the mirror next to me. i suppose she was pretty... but nowhere near as hot as i was, i had made sure of that. Tonight was my night and nobody was going to take that away from me. I finished applying my third coat of mascara when there was a knock at the door, people had started to arrive. Within an hour the house was crawling with hundreds of alcohol fuelled teenagers. All eyes where on me , and why wouldn't they be? i was pretty i was popular and i got everything i wanted, nothing could ruin this night. “Awesome party Amber!” shouted someone from the crowd of wild teens, causing everyone to cheer in approval. I am like a god to these people, they worship me. Lets face it, i deserve it. Suddenly the doorbell rang, i ran to open it hoping for even more admirers. There in the doorway stood Sarah the ugly girl. Only tonight she wasn't so ugly, actually she looked quite beautiful. She had taken out her tight braids to reveal silky flowing brunette hair and without her glasses i could see her huge bright green eyes framed by long black eyelashes. I stared at her in amazement, but it soon turned to hatred. To my dismay this previously ugly girl was prettier than me. In-fact, she easily surpassed my beauty by miles! “What are you doing here!” I screamed, I could feel my heart pumping faster as I tried to control my anger. “I heard their was a party on” She replied in her sickly sweet voice. Pure rage took over me and i pushed her as hard as i could, causing her to fall backwards, a gasp escaped her perfect mouth as she hit the ground. “Why did you do that?” She stammered as she looked up at me in shock and confusion. “How DARE you come to my party ugly girl” i shouted, my spit flying onto her face. i couldn't let her know she was prettier than me, that she out shined me! i just wouldn't give her that satisfaction. “I'm so sorry, i promise i will leave, please don't hurt me” She spluttered as tears chocked her throat. She attempted to get up on her feet but before she could i kicked her in her side causing her to fall in a puddle of mud. anything to ruin her stunning dress and perfect hair. Tears where running down her face and she was covered in mud but her beauty shone through. Why would it not disappear? “Fight! Fight! Fight!” I heard the people around me screaming, egging me on. I didn't need to be told twice, nobody outshines me, NOBODY.! “Amber, please stop i am begging you!” She pleaded as she stumbled to her feet. Her pathetic begging for mercy only made me hate her more. I slapped her across that perfect face, to my su Also if anyone could please fix up the grammer. ? :) And do you understand the message i am trying to convey or what is your view on the intended meaning. :) its for a school assignment on bullying so any help would be great. oh i just realised it didnt all get posted wait a sec “Fight! Fight! Fight!” I heard the people around me screaming, egging me on. I didn't need to be told twice, nobody outshines me, NOBODY.! “Amber, please stop i am begging you!” She pleaded as she stumbled to her feet. Her pathetic begging for mercy only made me hate her more. I slapped her across that perfect face, to my surprise she pushed back causing us both to fall to the ground. I felt my rib crack through the force of the fall. Intense pain was pulsating through my side and each breath was almost unbearable, but i ignored it, no time for pain. I felt around me for something to use as a weapon when my my hand connected with something. A rock, Perfect. I could see Sarah was on her knees in pain next to me. i wrapped my fingers around the cold rock and slammed it into Sarah's face, felt her skull crunch under the force of my blow. Again and again i smashed the rock into that beautiful face until it was unrecognisable. Her body fell limp to the ground and relief washed over me – The next hour was a blur of police sirens and screaming. I saw people looking at me in disgust. Disgust? They where staring at me as if i was some kind of monster, as if i was ugly. This was something i had never experienced before. I was the one who was supposed to look at people in disgust not the other way around.. As i was lead into a police car one thought was passing through my head. I was thankful i had worn a black dress, the blood is less noticeable... amber the b!ttch girl is actually a psycho there is a repocusion. she goes to jail. i am guessing she will be tried as an adult so thats a life sentance, 25 years!

Questions And Answers On Stubborn Cellulite

July 28th, 2015

Caroline asks…

How can i reduce the appearance of cellulite on the back of my thighs?

I am in very good shape and at 5'8" and just 125-130 lbs., I have a nice body. But, I do have stubborn cellulite that I need to hide the appearance of NOW.! IN TIME FOR BIKINI SEASON!!! :) HELP!!!

answers:

Sorry, but there really is no solution, no matter what people tell you. You can try commercial products (Nivea makes some), but they don't work appreciably well. A tan will hide a multitude of sins, including cellulite, but since real tans are very bad for your skin, use fake tanners or a get a spray tan. The majority of women have cellulite, even thin women, even women in very good shape. I'm a size 0-2 and get plenty of exercise, but I have cellulite.

John asks…

Graham asks…

How can i get rid of cellulite?

I'm 15 yrs old, 5'3 and i weigh 118. I've recently been getting cellulite the past couple months and i want to know some ways to prevent and get rid of it. I know eating healthy and exercise obvs but any other things that truly help? Personal experience? Stretch marks, also

answers:

One way to get rid of cellulite is through exercise. Sitting for long periods of time decreases our body’s circulation. In fact, the most stubborn cellulite deposits are often located right in the area where the leg meets the chair while sitting, most likely because this is the area where the circulation was cut off. A sluggish circulatory makes it more difficult for the blood and the lymphatic system to send oxygen around the system and to remove toxins. Therefore, regular exercise that can is brisk, yet gentle, is one way to treat cellulite. Swimming and walking are great ways to do this. Cellulite can also be treated with skin brushing and massage. These forms of treatment help to clear and cleanse the lymphatic system by speeding up circulation. This, in turn, gets rid of cellulite that has been building up for a long time in the body cells. A wooden brush with a long handle is needed for skin brushing. To perform skin brushing successfully, the brushing should be done in an upward direction with firm sweeping strokes. The process should begin at the soles of the feet and gradually move upward on the body. Special attention should be paid to areas that are prone to cellulite. In these areas, the brush strokes should follow a small, circular pattern. Over brushing, however, can irritate the skin and cause reddening.

Davina asks…

Does cocoa butter really help get rid of cellulite?

I'm only 110 lbs but for some reason I have cellulite. It's really weird but I think it's hereditary because my mom is really skinny and she has it too. Anyways I bought this cocoa butter thing for my skin and on the back it says it helps get rid of cellulite. I've only been using it for a couple days but I think I'm starting to notice a little bit of a difference. Has anyone else tried this? And how did it work for you?

answers:

Stretch marks yes...with time and patience of course but not cellulite. I run a lot to get rid of cellulite and I used Clarins Paris Total Body Fit. It's helps stubborn cellulite control, firms, refines, and tones it. You can find it at Macy's. I saw a difference. Try it for yourself.

Daniel asks…

How can I get rid of cellulite on my legs?

I do a lot of squats, lunges and fast walking, but it is really stubborn. Plus I really want to go swimming but I am too embarrassed until I get rid of it. I am a pear shape so I carry almost all my fat on my thighs. What can I do to make it go away?

answers:

Go to the gym and use the stairmaster and the cycle machines.

Shelley asks…

How do I get rid of cellulite and old stretch marks?

I have old stretch marks on my butt and some cellulite below it. Any ideas of inexpensive ways to get rid of it? I exercise, but the cellulite is pretty stubborn...And the stretch marks just look ugly.

answers:

You can never get rid of cellulite. The only option you have is to reduce the appearance. Creams, in my experience are rarely effective, and when they are, the results are minimal. Take a look at the link below to find out what finally worked for me.

Mike asks…

if i go on a jog for about 20 minutes everyday will that kill my cellulite?

im 15 and i have cellulite on my thighs and i want it GONEEEE so can someone please help? also, if i do jog everyday how many weeks until i start to see improvment?

answers:

Cellulite is fat deposits under the skin, jogging alone will not get rid of them. Diet and specific muscle training for the area in question would be best. There are many thin people who have cellulite, it is very tricky and stubborn to get rid of. Watch your diet and focus on the area is my best advice.
