    Do YOU Keto?

    In trying to figure out what my "balance" is, I tend to eat the same things over and over to make it easier until I feel like I've adjusted. Maybe I should have said "we are on break" - cause chicken and I are on break. Maybe eggs and I can try working things out.... or maybe I'll just forgo both chicken and eggs right now and not really care who was first because they both suck. Sorry about shrimp - have you tried fresh shrimp without the preservatives? It could be the tri-poly or whatever the fisherman puts on it. My fella is a commercial fisherman and I can eat them right out of the river, but not if anyone has dipped them (and almost everyone dips them so they last longer).

    Do YOU Keto?

    I am keto for medical reasons not related to weight loss. I did not choose this - it is the only way I can maintain "normal" function. I meet with a nutritionist weekly to actually learn how to function this way for the rest of my life. I will either have mashed potatoes for a brain or for bones - so I'm trying to find a nice compromise in the middle. I have to meal plan every meal every day - no cheating and no eating out - no exceptions. It really sucks. Eggs and I are currently not seeing each other. We apparently had a misunderstanding a little while back and now I just can't even put them in my mouth.

    Is anyone here a beekeeper?

    Its pretty awesome that they have established themselves. I bet that is interesting to watch throughout the seasons. Well maybe not so cool for you... I'm allergic to a ton of things, but so far not flying stinging critters.

    Is anyone here a beekeeper?

    I know enough to get hurt and possibly kill the bees I want to nurture. Total noob.

    Is anyone here a beekeeper?

    If so - can you share resources to get started (books to read, reputable places to purchase from, etc). With the decline in our bee population, I really want to establish a bee colony. I was initially going to wait until I finished school, but with the population declining so rapidly and knowing that it may take me some time to learn - I figured I should at least start learning now so that I can be ready to go once I graduate. Thanks!

    Nursing. The beginning.

    My first question to you would be - are you a church going man? If so - then other men in your church can help teach you these valuable skills. It isn't always about money - sometimes its about coming home to clean sheets and dinner on the table. We as females aren't any different from you. These assigned gender tasks are losing ground to a true partnership. It doesn't matter who makes the money, if today is her day to work - then its your day to make dinner and do the dishes. If she is off tomorrow, then maybe she can cook and do a load of laundry. It isn't about who does what - its about having enough. Enough time, enough money, enough patience, enough love, enough hugs, enough space, enough sleep, enough food..... enough. At the end of the day it doesn't matter who did it - it just matters that it needed to be done and it got done. Most women are just as touched by a man using the vacuum as they are coming home to jewelry - and the vacuum is probably more special since its cheaper and can be done more often! She didn't fall in love with you for your money. But she will fall out of love with you because of lack of motivation in the partnership. Figure out how to be her complement. FYI - if you aren't a church going man, observe men in your life that value their women and watch them. Spend time with them. Learn from them. Get counseling if you need it - but get over the idea that you have to make the money. What you HAVE to do is support her, make her feel special and loved and valued. Its a partnership - not a competition. Work together so that your family has .... enough.

    Feet & Shoes

    Thank you so much. I've been contemplating calling a foot doc - I just haven't wanted to figure out my new insurance... guess I'll be figuring that out! I appreciate your insight.

    Feet & Shoes

    Ok Y'all.... I know there are 9 million and 3 threads about shoes. I have all the shoes - abeo, danskin xp2.0, allegria, sketchers... I haven't bought shoes for crews yet. I'm currently using them for waiting tables, but I want to find a solution before clinicals because this is only going to get worse for me. Soon I'll be in clinicals during the week and waiting tables on the weekend. My feet may just revolt and run away. All the shoes make my big toes go numb (and it doesn't go away quickly - I last waited tables on Wednesday - now Friday and still numb. Maybe numb isn't the right word - altered level of sensitivity - similar to how a c-section feels....) I thought getting the allergrias with the big toe box would help.... nope. The tennis-shoe like sketchers do help some, but my feet ultimately still hurt. I hate the way the clogs slip on my foot and I feel like I'm clomping around but I wanted to try them. For clinicals I will need white shoes and currently I'm in all black non-slip. Question 1) I know we can't medical diagnose - but has anyone ever had this happen and if so - how did you fix it? I know its on the edge - but is there a name for this? Question 2) Insoles, another kind of shoe - seriously - how do I get my feet to stop hurting and my toes not be numb?? I'm ready to have someone mold my feet - I've spent enough money at this point. Ugh. I would give anything to have my feet not hurt at the end of the day. I'm working a double double and I know by Monday night my feet are gonna fall off. There just isn't enough aspirin.

    Is ADD / ADHD Real?

    In the past couple of hours I have found research that says it is genetic and causes a thinning of the cortial region detectable by MRI. If we were to add these criteria to the established diagnostic criteria maybe we wouldn't have so many children needlessly medicated. I also just found an article that states that not eating is a side effect of some of the medications and to give your kid pizza and fruit for breakfast instead. While I don't have a problem with giving kids pizza and fruit for breakfast - it does cover all the food groups - I just hate the idea of a child not eating because its medicated. What else is that medication doing?? I also don't believe fibromyalgia exists but that's another ball of wax. Thanks for your reply!!

    Is ADD / ADHD Real?

    In your opinion - is ADD / ADHD real - why or why not? Also, what are the leading resources in support (or against) these diagnoses? We had a discussion in class and I seem to be in the minority. While I believe that there are children with treatable issues, I think that the majority of the kids labeled with ADD or ADHD would be better served with discipline, physical activity to the point of feeling tired (i.e. soccer, jump rope or even just running) and getting off the meds. I think the meds are an excuse for children to continue bad behavior and parents to excuse it. Again, this is extremely generalized and I believe that there are children that do need medicines and assistance. Because of my strong and uneducated opinion, I want to do research to become informed. Like many things - certain websites look like the "authority" when in fact they are not. I want to use resources that teach truth instead of slanting one way or the other when doing further research. ** while I wrote this with children in mind, I'd love opinions on adults as well - my daughter who just turned 20 thinks that she has ADD. I may need to apologize to her for my eye-roll when all is said and done. Thanks for your opinions and direction!
