    It's probably too late to give advice now, so the one thing I want to know is:How did it go?!

    Well, after I started having skin issues on other parts of my body I did some research. Turns out my skin just doesn't like sodium laurel sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate, which are common ingredients in soap. My condition got better after just 2 days of using a different soap that doesn't have those ingredients.

    For the past week or so, I've noticed that the skin on my shaft and part of my scrotum has become less sensitive and more fragile. The skin itself gets irritated and tears easier than it used to and it has the appearance of skin with a thin layer of glue dried on it. I'm a virgin, no STDs, no drugs, etc. I put lotion on down there daily, but it doesn't help. Any thoughts/ideas?

    I'm going to go against the grain here, and say that you need to eat a little more meat (preferably red meat). Fats tend to have a soothing effect on the digestive system, so consuming less meat may actually cause the increase in gas. In my own experience, I have the highest volume and the smelliest gas when I haven't consumed meat in a while. When I get bloated, I just eat some red meat and the gas goes away without flatulence. Just some food for thought (no pun intended).

    Most guys are self-conscious and possibly don't want other guys calling them small, even if they are not. As for guys using stalls to pee, that is often an issue with "shy bladder," which is a legitimate problem where the subconscious mind makes it difficult or impossible for a guy to pee in the presence of other people. Sometimes you'll hear guys with this problem pee in "bursts" rather than a constant stream due to the brain trying to subconsciously stop the flow of urine.

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but I cannot give presentations.I freak out every time and I just look at my notes or my PowerPoint and just read it in a monotone voice. And that's after I can actually do anything. I am panicked, I can't breathe, and I am shaking so much that I can't even read my notes. Right now I am reviewing my PowerPoint and my mind and body are just shutting down out of complete fear and I haven't even started rehearsing the presentation yet. I've taken 2 speech classes before and I've researched every different way of trying to cope with this but nothing helps. It's just a quick, few-minute-long presentation and I've been nervous about it all semester long. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any ideas that could help?

    My stream has that flat twist to it. There's nothing wrong with that.I also pee sideways sometimes and it's usually because one side of the hole doesn't line up with the other one, usually due to the confined space in which it resides (my underpants). What helps me is just gently pulling the hole open before peeing.

    I'm 21, but I've never had a "real" job and I'm currently in college so I pretty much fit into the teen category. Anyway, I'm majoring in flight but I've been realizing that I do not have the energy to be a safe pilot (I have CFS) so I've wasted the last 2.5 years of my life in college working towards something that I am not going to do. I know this is relatively common and I have several friends that are also in the same boat but we've put too much time, money, and energy to just drop out of college at this point. Like I've said, I have never had a job so I don't even know what it is like to be in the "real world." I don't even know if I want to ever be in a romantic relationship with anyone (I've never been in a relationship before). I guess I could be happy working as a pizza delivery driver (if I could get that job), or I could be happy working multiple fast food type jobs. I just don't know. It would be nice to own a business one day, but my lack of social and business skills pretty much put me at zero for that dream and I can't handle any more college. No one wants to socialize with me and I am awkward when I am out in public, so I never meet any new people even though I am a member of multiple organizations on campus (schedule permitting). I'm just not happy with my life and the complete lack of direction. And with the economy the way it is, getting any job is difficult. I just don't know where I want my life to go and it's driving me crazy. 1/3 of my life is gone and I haven't done anything and I don't know what I want to do. I guess this is just a rant, but does anyone have any tips on how to figure out what I want to do?

    Yeah, I took that into account, which is why I actually hit the dog. I could have swerved more and missed the thing altogether but I chose myself over the dog, which is a thought that is helping me feel better.
