Apartment-finder sites and advice?

I'm apartment-hunting right now, and I was wonder if anyone had suggestions on what sites I should be looking at to get some ideas. I've just been using the first ones to come up on a Google search thus far—rent.com, forrent.com, and apartmentguide.com, I think. Anyone know some good sites or apps? It would REALLY help … » 3/26/14 8:25am 3/26/14 8:25am

You may want to bring up the possibility of the Skyla IUD with her. She may not know of it yet (I mean, I would hope she would, but I know my doctor didn't when I asked her about it). It's specifically designed for women who haven't had kids yet, so it's smaller. On the downside, it lasts three years rather than the… » 3/26/14 12:24am 3/26/14 12:24am

That time I almost died: The story of how Death almost came for…

This is the story of how I almost died. I mentioned earlier today how I was unexpectedly emotional about being alive today, and upon your urging, I finally took the time to write down my story. I'm warning you in advance—this is long and unedited. I'm throwing in some gifs to try to keep it interesting (which I assume… » 3/23/14 6:39pm 3/23/14 6:39pm

It could quite possibly be orthostatic hypotension. Basically, when you've been sitting down too long, the blood pools in your lower extremities. You stand up, your brain isn't getting enough blood, your blood pressure drops, and it can cause you to fall down. Suggestions you may hear might include significantly… » 3/16/14 11:25pm 3/16/14 11:25pm

Breaking out of my shell, meeting new people, and having productive…

I don't know that anyone will really care that much about this, but I'm super excited and proud of myself, so I thought I'd share. This weekend I finally did something new! I'm usually a rather shy person, and I'm quite content to sit at home on the weekends watching TV or Netflix. This weekend, though, my best friend… » 3/16/14 11:19pm 3/16/14 11:19pm

Here's a link with some dietary recommendations for people with renal issues. I was in kidney failure (among other things) at one point a few years ago, and the doctors were rather opinionated about what food I could and could not eat at that point. (I will say, though, I was on the brink of death, in multi-system… » 3/12/14 12:25am 3/12/14 12:25am

Mine was rough. =( I found out today that someone's made an offer on my childhood home, the home I grew up and pretty much the only place I've ever really lived, outside of college. I've been helping my parents pack things up here for a while, and I knew they were planning on selling it, but it all became real today. I … » 3/03/14 11:40pm 3/03/14 11:40pm

I got ALL THE MAKEUP!

At the end of last week, I finally received the massive makeup order I made after GTers helped me and gave me a ton of recommendations and after getting my first real red lipstick! I'm almost embarrassed by how much I got. It's very rare that I splurge, and in my defense, all the Urban Decay stuff (except Naked 3) I… » 3/03/14 8:55pm 3/03/14 8:55pm

As multiple people have mentioned, it's super easy to improve your Vitamin D deficiency! Any drugstore or Walmart/Target that sells supplements will have Vitamin D, so it's not hard to find at all, and it's not very expensive. » 3/03/14 11:46am 3/03/14 11:46am

I do, and I have for years. That's one of the reasons why I started hormonal birth control in high school. If you use packs back-to-back like you do with Seasonique, you have no periods and, at least for me, no migraines or flare ups of other conditions. If you're not already on HBC, I'd talk to your doctor about it.… » 3/03/14 11:29am 3/03/14 11:29am
