Annoying minor health problems Anonymous 9004[Reply]

Figured I would start a thread to discuss problems that are annoying which don't completely warrant a trip to the doctor's, in the hopes that some fellow anons might have helpful tips/insight.

I'll start:
>been having incredibly sore knees for the past several days, usually this happens around my period but that isn't due for a t
>go into a "food coma" whenever I consume a non-tiny amount of carbs or grease (literally can't control when and where I fall asleep) and wake up with flu-like symptoms after

I don't know what it is called but my sister had this and got an operation to fix it.

chronic constipation since i was a child
(neglectful parents didn't give a fuck to have me checked out)
i shit once a day or so but it's rabbit pellets and hard to get out.

Anonymous 9021

This could be a food intolerance (lactose?) or dehydration. Try keeping a food diary and excluding each of the top allergy good for a few days and see how you get on. Also try getting fiber supplements like fybogel. Btw, if you don't know already, you can put your finger up your vagina and use that to help push things out.

Anonymous 9036

>your finger
i'm very aware of that technique. luckily i'm female and not a moid. i'm trying to take a test to see if it's a thyroid issue, because it's not like i've had the same diet my entire life, but i've always had the same problems. hydration makes no difference either. i have other symptoms of hypothyroidism, but life without healthinsurance is hard.

my butthole is kind of ugly too

>it's not like i've had the same diet my entire life
That's true but things like dairy, wheat, and soy are in almost everything these days.

Makeup is fakeup?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous 7468

Makeup is an I teresting thing. I like it a lot, and I find it so cool what people are able to do with it. You can completely change yourself wearing it. Its like clothing, yknow? Its a form of expression. And it makes some women more confident, which is great.

Ive never been one to wear makeup. I did my freshman year of high school, but after a year of that I got sick of it. I honestly can't remember the last time I actually wore it.
But lately ive been seeing imperfections (dark areas on my face, I have this mole I'm self conscious about) and I think I could seriously revamp my face and feel more confident.

But I don't want to, like… Idk, lie to myself. I know I have the freedom to wear or to not wear makeup. It'd be weird, I don't eve know where to begin or what kind to buy.

Its conflicting when I feel like this should be a really straightforward decision. Its like an identity thing.

Anonymous 7473


Leaving the negative stigmatas aside, makeup has a lot of benefits especially when you're getting older.
"As much as necessary, as little as possible." is the key here to avoid looking like Homer shot you with his Makeup Gun. I like it classy and wear it every day.

Yesterday, something terrible happened to me, anon. I got my new glasses, and as soon as I put them on, I surprisingly realized how ugly the optician was. Then I got home and looked at myself in the mirror, only to find that I had a terrible skin, with giant pores and nasty wrinkles on my 31-y-o face. Living without glasses had kept me in a blurred world where everything looked soft. Now it all looks harsh, sharp, with strong contrasts, and of course, I now know that I look way less cute than I thought. I knew I did not have a perfect skin, but this was shocking.

Today I put fondation on before I went to work, and willingly left my glasses at home.

Anonymous 9000

I have the glasses experience every darn time I change them. But I prefer peelings and good face washers than foundation (never bought a bottle). I might make up a little bit my nose because I have some small veing around my nostrils.

Anonymous 9006

I feel bad for contributing to the expectation that women should wear but i love it. I don't wear it everyday and when i do it's no foundation/concealer, only translucent powder. My acne shows but i don't really mind.

I like to play around with colors, eyeliner shape and shadow texture and look soft or sharp when i feel like it. Sometimes i put it on just to hang around, it's like painting on your face.

Maybe go to college after it? seems like the best option and one i've been seeing more women take. It just makes no sense to go to college first, raise kids for years and then go back to work when you've forgotten almost everything / your knowledge might be outdated and you likely have no connections left from college to help you get a job. A year of gap in your resume is already enough for most recruiters to pass you on jobs that require higher education, imagine 4 or more if there's more kids.

Unless they are dumb enough to sign a prenup they likely won't be left destitute overnight though. And it's not like they will have a good paying job outright even with a degree, hell even for people who are fresh out of college, with internships and connections under their belt job hunting is hard. They will probably need to work minimum wage to survive for months or years.

Shit, sorry. Can't delete it now.

I wish young people would dress more modestly, specially at uni.

Anonymous 8986

I wish weird fashion was more acceptable. Ethnic and traditional wear, j-fashion, just… whatever weird shit people feel like wearing.

I don't care if the person is fat or ugly and it hurts my eyes, i love how fashion can be used to express yourself and i would find it beautiful if everyone could do it with weirdness cranked up to 11.

Business casual just makes me want to die and i hate how you can't even wear an a-line dress in my country without people asking if you are going to a party or dinner.

I like skirts over jeans. It's a fun and warm combination, makes me remember being a kid again.

Probably, but it seems like it that would be uncomfortable. You should probably reconsider what you're eating if that's a regular issue.


Sleep patterns Anonymous 4779[Reply]

What time do you wake up?

And do you go to bed at regular times during the week?

Anonymous 4781

Between 5am and 6am now. Am NEET.

I always sleep at the same time.

Anonymous 4788


Depends on my schedule on what I'm doing the next day. Either way I don't think my sleep schedule is so good as I tend to usually get about 4-5 hrs of sleep plus no naps throughout the day.

During weekdays it is usually between 7 to 8 AM.
Weekends are from 11 AM to 12 PM.

As for going to bed it's usually about the same time between 2:30 AM to 3:30 AM. I'm a night owl, but I always want to wake up in the morning to have as much time to do work so then I can have more time to goof off.

Anonymous 4792

This week I've been going to sleep around 2am and waking up around 10:30-11. I usually go to bed later, though. Naturally, I function best going to bed early and waking up early. But my work/living situation doesn't allow for that at the moment.

Anonymous 8892

I sleep from 23h to 7h/ 11pm to 7am. I can't change it but I'm quite okay with it, I love doing things in the morning although I wish I could be so active at night as well.

Anonymous 8896

I'm an extreme night owl who also happens to need 9 hours of sleep per night. I usually end up sleeping 2am-11am, if not later. Wish I could have a more normal sleep schedule.


eyebrow fit Anonymous 8666[Reply]

Hey there, what style of eyebrow should I head for? I have a textbook definition of a heart shape face yet I have prominent fierce eyes. My eyebrows don't help soften my look. I keep them in clean shape, just waxed out dead space hairs every 2 weeks. Does not drastically change my shape doing that.

I've had an arch thin eyebrow before and I didnt like it. I think it was too dramatic for my face. That was years ago so maybe Im open to the idea again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Anonymous 8668

go to the most expensive eyebrow salon near you. get them to pick the shape for you. then just keep tweezing when hairs grow back.

Anonymous 8692


Anonymous 8796

Eyebrow styles are a fad and I would not go after some specific shape to "fit" your face. For example, in the chart anon posted just above, the high arch examples already look stodgy and out of fashion to me.

Keeping them neat like you do is the most important thing, but after that is keeping them (reasonably) even. For you, OP, I would pluck above the brows where they are higher towards the outside of your face, and try to get the top line smoother. I think that alone would make your face a lot softer.

Anonymous 8842

Please don't try and "shape" your eyebrows. Well defined eyebrows look best so maintain them so they're neatish

How do you stay motivated for weight loss?

I find it a hard time keeping motivated for weight loss. It doesn't help that I'm a foodie and seek food out for emotional comfort. And I have no self discipline.

I'm just curious how other people stay motivated. Do you set up wallpapers? Keep photos around. How do you remind yourself?

You mean like Eugenia Cooney? I'm not really sure.

Anonymous 8784

That's a bit extreme. But I find very thin legs appealing.
I don't follow her drama but wasn't it revealed that it was her mother pressuring her to be like that?

Anonymous 8786

I never really followed her either, but yeah there's nothing wrong with being thin. It's just fetishising it is what's weird. You never know if being just thin will be enough, if it gives you that kind of feeling. Might be addicting.

>no pictures to attach
Any tips for exercising with painful scars? I had my appendix removed years ago and the scar has always caused pain when stretching it, even mildly. I'd say it's even gotten worse in recent months where I try to exercise. If I try to do push ups, planks, whatever, I just feel this stretching that gets unbearable after a minute, and I usually have a pretty high pain tolerance.
It's particularly annoying because I don't have the ability to do much exercising other than walk a lot (which is difficult for other reasons, but improving) and things I can do at home.

Do you apply anything to your scar? Pic related is good.

Anonymous 8671

I have some scars on my knees from 3-4 years ago that still haven’t healed. They’re mostly a pink color. When they were still newer I tried bio-oil but it didn’t seem to have much/any effect. On a whim, I recently started putting hado labo gokujyun moisturizer on my knees every time I moisturize my face, and it’s surprisingly lessened the appearance of the scars. Ymmv.

Anonymous 8674

Is it good for stretch marks?

Anonymous 8675


Yes, sadly it's very expensive, always search for a good quality oil in a dark glass bottle. I have a lot of stretch marks and I used to aply it whenever I could buy a (small) bottle. But right now I'm using literally pic related, which also hydrates fairly (gives me fewer pimples than cremas), smells really nice as well and is cheaper.

What are some good wristwatches for women? I feel like we are missing out on all the good stuff, the watch market is mostly aimed at men.

I bought this a couple days ago. Less than 24€, I really like this brand. The pic is not mine but I decided a photo of someone wearing it would give you a more accurate idea of how it suits my wrist. My mother said it's a winter watch!!

Here's a picture of the model.

This is nice. Simple, understated, elegant, and austere. Casio is a reliable brand too. This watch would probably look great if you dressed in black and white formalwear

Only watch I will ever wear tbh.

Anonymous 8649

Yes! I wanted something formal and discrete.
