I got a nuclear stress test back in 2018, maybe? They did find a "reversible perfusion defect". I remember the doctor that saw me wanted to give me a "cardiac catheterization" and "give me a stent", but it seemed so fucking suspicious to me. I remember the hospital nurse giving me a stern warning not to let anyone stick ANYTHING into my wrist, and like a day afterward here comes the heart doctor asking to do just that.

It doesn't help that said heart doctor didn't even listen to me about my symptoms at first (I had an entire diary on my phone chronicling my day to day symptoms – he didn't read it, and I don't have it anymore) and tried to write them off as ~anxiety~. He also refused my blood test (under the assumption that I "didn't need one lol too young xD"). This was after he suggested the cath btw.

And yeah, I've had ECG's, but they've all come back normal. It makes me wonder if there's not some sort of conspiracy to keep me in pain kek.

Anonymous 11268


To add on to this, because I'm leaving out some stuff – from ordering tests on me (he had me wear a heart monitor and I just never got the results from that back) to sending his obviously untrained intern nurses to tell me shit, it just left a bad stain on my memory and made me sort of distrustful of doctors. I've been busy with school and stuff too.

I'm also reliant on medicaid so the number of doctors I can see is small.

All that being said, this semester wraps up soon, and I'm DEFINITELY gonna seek out doctors that don't suck cock to fix me. I'm tired of dealing with this pain, it's scary.

Been a long time for that chronic pain. Has it gotten any better? Is it getting worse? Does it fluctuate?
It’s sounding heart related, these are almost classic heart attack symptoms. But assuming no heart damage, it’s either your blood or your lungs. If not them, it’s your nervous system. A good doctor (WHICH I AM NOT PLEASE DO NOT THINK I AM A DOCTOR) would go through the list and attempt treatments for each.
There are a few theories I have. I AM NOT A DOCTOR:
1) pain is chronic and staying roughly the same
- possibly late-developing cystic fibrosis, maybe even a mild version. Can confirm with genetic testing. If your skin tastes salty, and you are coughing up mucus, that is a pretty good sign
- possibly an autoimmune disease presenting with anemia. Low blood counts would give similar sensations to decreased oxygenation of the blood. Autoimmune diseases can present anywhere from birth into your 30s, they can also present when the body is subjected to an infection or a shock (exercise after years of being sedentary).
- hormonal disorder. Your brain is not sending out correct chemicals to direct your body to give your blood enough oxygen or make enough blood.
2)fluctuating pain
- look at allergies. Can drop your blood count and oxygenation and vary daily based on environmental factors you can’t control. Allergies develop in the late teenage years for a lot of people.
3) worsening pain
- cancer is my first bet, can be detected with a CT scan if symptoms have been worsening for a long time. Could also be bone marrow cancer (multiple myeloma) which would not be detected on a CT unless it was very advanced. Would need a biopsy.

I have ideas for treatment but I am in no way shape or form a medical professional, so please don’t listen to me. I don’t want to tell you what medicines to take but talk to a doctor about Prednisone for suspect autoimmune disorder and anti-depressant for possible neurological disorder. Prednisone can fuck you up, but it can also be incredible. It may cause heart problems so please only take it under the direction of a doctor WHICH I AM NOT. BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE IT AND DIE I WILL FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT IT IF AN ACTUAL DOCTOR DIDNT TALK TO YOU ABOUT IT.

>how fat are you
this was one person, definitely not a means of a sperg town about how flat girls are "Extremely hostile therefore deserving of being insulted because of one anon"
>people on the porn industry are fat fetishists, since they mostly hire women with large boobs
can you link to this I can't find this
>Classical coping mechanism from chestlets: "s-s-size is not so important!"
that wasn't hostile at all, and they linked studies to it anyway
>Another poor lady with cursed genes being mean for no reason at all.

they made a good point though and just pointed out that most pics of the large boobs were women relying on undergarmets for shape where as the small boob pics were wearing unpadded bras and often in crop tops. Not hostile at all and if facts offend you then…
>You poor things can cope as much as you want. Don't bother answering because I won't see your wishful thinking anyway.
you literally insulted me and then claimed I was hostile because (1)anon pointed out that girls being compared to each other had unfair advantages with undergarments. You're the one that's coping. Grow a pair and I don't mean your tits

Anonymous 13121


All all those studies gave big breasts a narrow advantage when compared to average breasts and a huge advantage when compared to small breasts though.

Anonymous 13124

How were these criterias measured though

Anonymous 13130

No most of the studies favored C cups or average. This one shows that average or medium size is a very close second if not even with attractiveness, wife, etc and smaller breasts are even more favorable in aspects of other things.

That being said. Most studies I've seen everyone overall prefers average
And the shape preferably one did prove that shape > size. And it's not cope. Denying studies and trying to claim everyone else is out to get you for pointing out the obvious is cope

Anonymous 13131


Also when I googled the most ideal breast size the first page of articles basically said nothing but favorably towards medium sized breasts in most studies. You also have to remember studies from pre 1960 ish defined "big" very definitely since the average was a B cup and most things that would be considered small today would be considered large back then. I definitely see this in the media and among men I know since women who are considered to have the ideal body often have C-D cups which are less than the average of America and UK


Bangs too short Anonymous 13076[Reply]

I went to a hair stylist who fucked up my bangs. They're too short and now my hair looks pretty much like a bowl cut. It's like a half inch above my eyebrows.

How long until they will be just below my eyebrows? How much of my bangs will grow per week?

I've been cutting my bangs myself for years, i don't let any stylist touch them for this exact reason

Anonymous 13123

Everyone's hair has a limit of how long it will grow. Think about how your eyebrows only get so long, same as arm or leg hair. Head hair is the same. This might be as long as yours gets.

I wonder what the average terminal length is, I tried looking it up but there is no good estimate since very few actually attempt to reach it. Also I'm very inclined to say that many people who think they reached terminal could actually go farther if they changed something, like giving up heat tools and chemical dyes, or avoiding certain hairstyles that cause tension and breakage.
On an unrelated note, I'm just 2 inches away from my goal length with no signs that growth is stopping, which is pretty exciting

Anonymous 13127

I'd say my terminal length is around hip length. I had my first haircut in over a year in June and cut 13 inches off of that, to about armpit length, just for a change and that it'd be nice to have shorter hair in the summer. Planning on growing it out to mid-back length and maintaining there. Anything longer is too difficult to handle, imo.

Anonymous 13129

I reached classic length a few years ago. Back then I was straightening my hair once a week and not taking care of it at all, but it was still growing. Sometimes I regret cutting it because it would have been funny to see it reach my thighs or knees but the hair started to wash me out and look ridiculous. All that to say - don't worry OP, your bangs will grow out in no time.


Getting into sports as an adult? Anonymous 13073[Reply]

Has anyone here gotten into a sport as an adult? How did it go?

I have 0 sports experience, never played sports as a kid, and the idea of joining a team/group/class sounds daunting.

Anonymous 13107

I would recommend weightlifting.
It's not as easy as most sports(get a trainer in the beginning) but generally if you have no experience in sports you don't have muscle to get into them.
And you won't really enjoy them if you are the worst.

Anonymous 13111

Weightlifting scares me because it’s male-dominated and I always here about people being judged for the way they do it.

Find a women's gym and see if they offer any free consultations. Lots of gyms will give you a week long free pass.

Does it bother anyone else how fat positive the radfem movement is/can be?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for not caring what moids find attractive, but being fat or worse, obese is objectively unhealthy. I know moids say this as an excuse to insult fat women but moids use anything as an excuse to insult women, so yeah.

And when you bring it up they just go full libfem mode like "Not your body not your business" etc. and saying you can be overweight and healthy (even if you specifically state that being fat/obese is unhealthy, not just having a bmi of 25). Or that women should live not thinking about looking hot.

I just don't get it. Why is being fat suddenly acceptable now and if you're saying it's unhealthy you just want women to submit to beauty standards, but being underweight is a sign of a life threatening mental illness as a result of being surrounded with unachievable beauty standards?

Is that body neutrality? i thought body neutrality means you don't have to be beautiful or attractive etc. all that matters is your health and physical/mental functioning.

>who gives a shit if someone is killing themselves by being fat? just let them and get over it

>>13046 I agree. Fat families often raise fat children and even animals which I believe is abuse since they didn't choose to have snowballing health issues.

Anonymous 13049

If a lot of the population is getting fat then it starts to spread poor health as it becomes normalized, it isn't isolated to individuals. Aside from influencing children/animals like >>13048 brought up, it affects the standards for everyday objects and foods. It isn't good for most foods to be loaded with nasty things or for portions to be massive, and when that's most popular, a lot of people aren't even aware that what they're eating is awful for them because it's the standard. That can make it harder for people to be well-informed on their health or to access healthy food; a lot of poorer people have bad diets and thus bad health because unhealthy shit is cheap and accessible. People see those around them being unhealthy, so they assume it must be fine. Also I know this sounds like a humblebrag thing to bitch about but at a low-healthy weight, it's getting increasingly hard for me to find clothes that fit due to vanity sizing and it did impact my self-esteem

Anonymous 13066

This. And it's inaccurate to say that fat people kill themselves. Most of them claim they don't care if they get diabetes or whatever then in the same breath complain if they can't access meds for it. If they really didn't care about their health, they wouldn't care to medicate all the health problems they cause themselves. It doesn't just cost a lot of money to treat them, but it takes away resources from people who really need them due to genetic conditions and accidents. It's better for everyone if people would take care of their health and avoid illness when they can.

Anonymous 13109

No because I've never seen it. Literally anywhere this just seems like attempting to rip on radfeminism.

my bf keeps popping his zits. sometimes he even calls me to look at him squeeze out the pus and blood. he says i'm the weird one for not popping mine and just letting them dry by themselves. my questions are the following:
i. what does he mean by this?
ii. is he right?

Anonymous 13100

Let your pimples dry by themselves otherwise they will leave a mark which is pretty well known.
Also, others will grow in the same spot shortly after, but this is just something I noticed personally.

Anonymous 13101

Popping them just spreads the bacteria underneath the skin, worsening the problem and can cause scarring. Tell him to keep his paws off his face and tell him to buy pimple patches and benzoyl peroxide and enjoy a bf with improved skincondition

Anonymous 13102

It's pretty common to pop pimples. It's kinda weird to really enjoy looking at it that much but there's an entire r/popping subreddit, so evidently he's not alone
It isn't a good idea since it does leave scars, so it's better to go with your way. It's just a really common bad habit like biting nails

Anonymous 13105

Well, popping certainly doesn't help with his acne because it spreads bacteria all over the area.

But honestly though, I don't think it makes a huge difference in scarring from MY PERSPECTIVE.
I'm prone to hyperpigmented scars so I notice that the pimples I never touch end up with the similar scarring pattern as the ones I do squeeze. That is because most of the scarring comes from the inflamation itself and inflamation happens to any pimple.
I'm super sensitive to touch and the feeling of pressure below my skin from a really infected pimple drove me nuts so most of the time i'd pop those (and ironically sometimes
they healed faster once the pus was out). That's probably the reason why he picks at his pimples so much.

But at least get him to wash his hands before and after and to do it with q-tips or clean toilet paper wrapped around his fingers so he doesn't hurt himself more than necessary, and that he apply some cleaning agent such as benzoyl peroxide to kill some of the bacteria that came out with the fluid. Or don't, you're not his mom lol.

And remember that the only effective treatment to skin picking is to just not have anything to pick at

Anonymous 13106

I pop my own pimples and it doesn’t make a difference in scarring for me. In fact, if I don’t pop some of them, they will turn into full-blown deep cysts and possibly spread and create more cysts.


Can we overweight women get hot? Anonymous 8761[Reply]

Hair is greasy and you can tell she has high blood pressure from her face which is obviously filtered. Breasts are saggy and pancake shaped which is seen as unattractive and usually is a sign of low collagen, low health and considered unattractive. She has nice eyes but who even knows nowadays with how many girls basically refuse to post a single picture that hasn't been edited to hell and back

Anonymous 13096


She sure as HELL does not look like that in person. The fake freckles she put on her nose are also weird looking. You can already tell her chest is going to look like this in a couple years because she doesn’t use sun protection. This woman visibly doesn’t take care of herself. Fat people are straight up incapable of being attractive unless its to fetishists.

Anonymous 13097

NTA but you sound nitpicky as hell, and her hair is NOT greasy, it looks like it has a moisturizer in it. You can tell the difference by looking at whether the hair is clumping together at the ends (like hers) or at the roots. Roots = unwashed grease, ends = product. And her picture doesn't look very edited, it just looks like a cell phone picture with a filter on it.


Big breasts thread Anonymous 11662[Reply]

Who here /titcow/?
There is a small breast thread, so I thought we could make one too to discuss our ailments/blessings.

>Do you like having big breasts?

>Would your change your breast size? Have you ever considered surgery?
>How has it affected you growing up? Any bad experiences with moids? Any nastiness from other girls?
>Has anyone ever made assumptions about your personality/character/libido because of your breasts?
>Do you consider any types of clothing a no-no because of your breasts?
>Any favourite bra brands or types?
>Any perceived advantages?

Also don't forget to self-check for lumps. Goes for our itty bitty sisters too.

Anonymous 13059

There's this super prevalent but outdated method where you add 4 inches to your underbust measurement. There's some history about why it came into place but nowadays it persists mostly because of ignorance and because it helps brands cram more people into their size range. Basically ignore it, even if a brand says to +4 for a good fit, I haven't heard of any where that's reflected in the design of the bras. The bra industry is a mess.
I'm guessing that at 34E you're approximately 34 inch underbust and 40 inch bust, which is a 6 inch difference. Count 6 letters in the bra alphabet and you get E cup in UK sizing, so 34E.
But if you added 4 to the underbust, you have a "38 inch" underbust and a 40 inch bust, which is a 2 inch difference and thus a B cup, 38B. I hope that helps explain where this result came from
By the way UK sizing is recommended regardless of your country because it's the most consistent and it will be easier to find bras in your size of UK origin. UK letters go A B C D DD E F FF G GG H HH J JJ etc.
note that DD and E are not the same in UK even though they are in US

Anonymous 13093


This. I'm a 28H and wearing the correct bra size made me realize how uncomfortable a lot of bras are since they have weird measurement systems instead of acknowledging most women have rib cages between 26-34 inches. That being said I most certainly can't fit into a 32C which is what I would be for the +4 band size. I got measured at Victorias secret once and they told me I was a 38B!! basically looked similar to picrel who was a 34F and was told by Victoria secret she was a 38B, not even close to a comfort Victoria secret bra size for me or here which would probably be a 34DD lol it's absolutely ridiculous and the reason why so many men and women have warped ideas of what boobs are supposed to look like

Pepper the bra company and the American girl puberty guide is also guilty of this. According to those then me, someone with breasts I have back problems from, would be a A-B cup like lol most certainly not
