    NON-Nursing Related: Problems with Family and in Need of Advice

    Thank you all so much for responding to my post. I know it is rather old but I haven't been on this site in quite some time due to working so much. Every one of you have helped me in my decision and it was a hard one. I didn't kick my brother out right away. In fact, he stayed for another 3 months until he decided to live with my parents. When asked why he chose to do that, he stated that he was just giving us a break. So, he did stay there for a while. My dad started having the same issues as I did with him and wanted him out. My mom was heartbroken and kind of caught in the middle and didn't know what to do. I told my parents that he couldn't come back to our place We were enjoying our time without him. He has been living in a motel for the past 2 months and has been working a lot. He has his money to my mom to hold onto so he can save it. I am still very much worried for him and hate that he is staying in a motel but that is his choice and now it's out of our hands...finally. Again, Thank you everyone for your awesome feedback!!!

    NON-Nursing Related: Problems with Family and in Need of Advice

    Marshall1, thank you so much for your powerful response. It wasn't harsh, it was truthful and I desperately needed it. I agree with everything you are saying. I just needed someone to confirm it if you know what I mean. Well, it was much overdue, but after we got into another argument last night, I told him he has 30 days to get out. He told me that he would be out in 1 week. He has been nothing but mean since. He hasn't taken it lightly by any means. He even text me that he was just going to get a motel and go back to doing crack and never see me again. I told him that what he does is up to him as long as he doesn't live with me. I try to show no emotion but it's hard. He then proceeded to tell me that he wants half the money he gave me last week back (he only paid me $100 in the last month). I am ill about it but I am going to give him his $50 back, or maybe the whole $100, and let him be on his way. I guess it's just the lack of appreciation that bothers me the most. It hurts that he doesn't even acknowledge that I've been helping him for almost 2 years. He just tells me what a "***" I am. Well, throwing something in the floor and calling me a "***" was the last straw. I've had it!
  3. I hope I put this thread in the right place. If not, please feel free to direct me. My brother has been living with my husband and me for 1.5 yrs. He his 10 years older than me. I have no kids, it's just my husband and me. When we first let him live with us, it was because he hit rock bottom (3 months to help him get on his feet has turned into 1.5 yrs). He just got a divorce and couldn't pay his rent. We cleaned out an extra room for him sleep in. He has also been taking Methadone for 12 years and this is where the majority of his money goes. He paints houses for a living so some weeks he gets paid good and other weeks, not so good. He is not open to help when it comes to getting off his Methadone. We have let him borrow money before just to get his Methadone when his paychecks weren't good. He has always paid us back. I've told him he needs to give me money weekly. He does this when he can (when he does get to work). Also, he's very depressed and has a somewhat dark mind. He draws pictures of zombies, skulls, and listens to death metal. A few minutes ago, I asked him not to fall asleep on my couch. He got very angry and stated, "Am I not good enough to sleep on your couch?" We argued a little and he threw his laptop in the floor. and slammed his door. I don't understand this. My husband I have been trying to hep him. I'm at the point to where I just want to tell him to get out. My mother told me though that she fears he would probably die if I kicked him out. He would probably get back on crack, crystal meth, or whatever and become homeless. I don't know what to do

    What is the best way 4 me 2 lose weight. Need 2 lose 60pds?

    Thanks for your input...I wanted to reply so I could "bookmark" this page. You have some great advice there.
  5. :yeah: You definitely speak the truth there...I could not have said it better myself!
  6. One thread mentioned Urban Decay. I tried this on at Ulta's beauty store, I think that's how you spell it...it's new in our town. Anyway...I fell in love with Urban Decays eye shadow. It was very shimmery though. Something I may actually purchase in the future. You can get it at Ulta.com if you don't have a store in your area. It has some major staying power. It's definitely not cheap. I'm currently in love with Estee Lauder's Double Wear. This stuff does not come off in 16hrs. It gives such a flawless finish, and the lady at the counter told me she has a lot of nurses as costumers due to it's staying power and I didn't even tell her I was a nurse, haha. I don't like to look like I'm wearing a lot of makeup, but I do like to feel confident and be presentable. If I feel like I look good, I can do my job better. : ) Sure, I have some weight to lose...but my makeup makes me happy. :lol2:
  7. Oh my gosh...this comment is so inappropiate. I was asking a simple question about makeup. Most women do wear makeup, whether they are a nurse or not. I don't see how getting "off the topic of nursing..."makes nurses sound petty and unprofessional". I was asking this question too, because a lot of us nurses work long 12-16 hour shifts, and some make-up doesn't have that staying power. Just looking for suggestions and comments. Hey there, supernurse, you need to lighten up a bit. :heartbeat It's just makeup. : )
  8. (sorry, the title should have read: what brand of makeup do you wear?) i've been on a make-up frenzy lately and have tried different department store make-ups. my latest try was mac...which i wasn't impressed with at all. i currently wear double wear by estee lauder. it stays on all day...through the sweat i endure during my shift. i haven't found anything i like better so far. so, what brand do you wear? what do you like about it? spill :lol2:
