    I love the Canadian health care system. For every story like that, there are thousands of other much more positive stories. A family friend had cancer, received treatment extremely fast, then had a brain tumor, again, received treatment very fast. He's still alive and well, and doesn't have any debt from the medical treatment (and it certainly didn't cost upwards of $100,000). I feel terrible for the woman in that article, though \:\(

    For my non-priority shoulder stabilization surgery, the wait was only about a month and a half.

    Heheh, they are very expensive. Gym memberships usually are a bit cheaper, and you get access to so many more machines there. But like Pete said, the second hand weights are much less expensive. I got my benchpress new, which was ~250 on sale, and then got all the weights second hand (Not very expensive at all, some of the weights didn't even cost a dollar! I think I picked up two fives, four tens, and two twenty fives).

    Of course, you could alternatively go for a jog or purchase a skipping rope if you wanted to lose weight. Or if you have a pool do some water aerobics/laps.

    Yeah, I myself have (or rather, had) social anxiety for a few years. My chest would feel tight, I'd have trouble breathing, my palms would be sweaty. I know someone who didn't really have a 'reason' for her anxiety, too. She would just randomly have panic attacks. I tried medication and it worked for me, then I gradually weened off it when I felt I no longer needed it.

    Best of luck!

    It does sound like it could be. Do you find it harder to breath? I have anxiety, and when I have an anxiety attack those are generally my symptoms - minus the redness. Feelings of nervousness/uneasyness, even crying, and especially shaking or being jittery (or 'twitching' to an extent) are fairly normal for anxiety attacks (at least in my experience).

    I think you should try talking to your doctor or a psychiatrist, even if you do not wish to take medication.

    Yep, like sdp said. Plus, firmer breasts are nice \:\) but they're all different.

    I'm very interested to see if anyone has any ideas. I've done the same thing as you! I can NEVER wake up to my clocks. I have three clocks (two electronic, and one wind up). I thought it was just the tone or sound of the alarm, but I have three set up here and none work. If I put them farther away they don't even wake me up. Sometimes, I'm not even sure if I wake up at all (but it seems like I must sometimes, because my alarm has been messed with).

    Welcome to A2A :smile:

    It does sound like he might have only been in it for a hook-up. However,it also sounds as if he's trying to make you jealous by saying he left to be with a girl he knew. It could be that he likes you, and you saying no (even though it was reasonable to decline him) hurt his feelings.

    I don't want people bitching at me for trying to give him a chance here. I just want to know what other people would do. We've been dating almost a year! And I love him. And he loves me. He has no explanation for what he did. I mean, other couples go through things that are worse than this, and they can work through it. So do you think there is any hope left for us? I want him working his ass off to get me back. We're still together, but we both know that I could dump him at any minute, and honestly I want him scared shitless. He's scared but I think he's expecting it... And I don't know when I will even see him again. He lives 4 hours away until the fall when we had plans to live together. I had plans to see him next week, but now I'm doubting it, unless he wants to pay my way out there. I feel like taking part of the bus money and buying myself a sexy pair of shoes.

    Oh, and mom really hates him for this. And says that he will probably never be welcome back in the house again \:\( At least not for a long time. And I told him I hated him for what he did to me I love him, but I hate how he risked our relationship for some skank bitch that he hasn't even met in real life!


    I can relate, I once found pictures of my own girlfriend that had been sent to another guy that lived pretty far away. I was devastated, and from then on the relationship never had the same trust. I don't think comparing this situation to other couples' is really wise - maybe it's good to try to rationalize the situation, but at the same time every relationship is different. It's been a week or more now since this happened (I think), so the initial reactions and feelings should start to wear off and you can think about it more clearly. You'll probably find that it will take a long time, if ever, for the same level of trust to return to the relationship. Obviously this is terrible timing because you were going to move in with him - but it could be a positive, if that's possible. It allows you to take a step back and analalyze the direction the relationship is going and whether you want to make that commitment. Sometimes just loving a person isn't enough.

    I can also relate to a parent having a dislike for someone you're in a relationship with. My parents, atleast, made it really awkward because they weren't receptive to her, at all.

    You mentioned you hated how he risked your relationship. Do you feel he values it as much as you do?

    Yep, my exgirlfriend was definetly into scratching. Either way, me scratching her or she liked scratching me. She did it ridiculously hard, not to complain, but it'd leave marks and occassionally bleed a bit. It doesn't particularly hurt, so I wouldn't worry about that. Especially in-the-moment, it just feels good and not painful (though I guess it depends on the person)

    Yeah, I'm not too sure on the fingersucking thing. If she likes it then that's good and it doesn't matter if it's weird or awkward (how does it make you feel - awkward?). My girlfriend used to suck on my finger. I guess a lot of girl's find guy's asses attractive. I have no idea why personally, but I've known a lot of girls who openly admit it.

    Sounds like a nice weekend, anyways \:D

    I'd say it's nearly impossible you have anything other than a 'pimple'/infected hair follicle. I've had a few too, I generally either leave them alone and they go away, or when they get white I just pop them like a normal one (I'll warn you that it hurts quite a bit, though) and then it just heals and is fine.
