The problem is that a lot of young girls are looking at photoshopped pictures of women with the genetics for that body type. Its not realistic and can be harmful to our body image.

>photoshopped
Can you even prove this?

I actually can, because this girl doesn't look anything like this picture, I found her.Her boobs are plastic and also funny because her legs and butt are too skinny, she just used the right angle and a little photoshop. Even though it's fake- I'll use this pic as my ideal since I now know that I have more genetic predisposition than her for that. Thank you gals for all the advices and kind words.

Hell, I'm no influencer and I've edited my photos for social media. Nothing big, just making my cheeks less round and fixing scars on my arms. Social media is fake, pass it on.

Thyroid Issues Anonymous 6738[Reply]

Any girls here suffer from thyroid issues and willing to give advice?

I just realized that I have a lot of symptoms related to hyperthyroidism. I was looking at some lab results from last year and my TSH was 0.60 (norm being 0.4-5.00). Is this anything to worry about? The most troublesome is the fact that I've had a resting heart rate of >120 for at least since high school, and I did a bunch of cardiac tests and it's come out perfectly fine everytime.

Feel free to discuss all things thyroid.

Hormone Balancers Anonymous 4432[Reply]

My hormones have been screwed up ever since I hit puberty and a few family members told me it isn't normal to have chin hairs since I'm still a teenager. I want to get some pills that will balance my hormones or at least get rid of my facial hair, but I can't find the right ones because they all seem like they are scams. Has anyone else had this problem or should I get whatever looks most legit?

Anonymous 4441

I haven't had this problem, but if its an issue with your hormones then you should see a doctor before taking a "supplement" as most of the time they ARE scams and are full of unhealthy things. Maybe a doctor can prescribe you something! You also might just have a condition that means you'll be growing hair on your face, so if that IS the case, maybe look into facial shavers! not like.. ones for people with beard but the other kind!
Plus you may not know exactly what kind of hormone is the issue, and if you take the wrong kind it could make it worse, and not better!
Over all, just go to a doctor! ^^

super late but I will swear by Swanson's Ovarian Glandular pills. They prevent my hormonal acne (AND the single facial hair on my chin doesn't grow.)

Go to a gynecologist so they can check your levels you might have something. I'm currently in the process of doing this and it's looking like I may have PCOS

Denim skirts at this point are more of a relic from 00s fashion. I do think black denim skirts like pic related are nice though.

Anonymous 6673

I find them cute on the right person. I'm actually into 90's-early 2000's fashion tho. It's too tight on my lower belly/hips so I don't pull them off well.

They can be cute. I have something like pic attached that works with most of my tops if I don't want to think too much about a casual outfit. What matters most is the fit anyway. Treat it like jeans: high waisted for pear/bottom heavy figures, and ones that start at the waist for straighter types.

Broken vagina club Anonymous 6474[Reply]

Anyone else have trouble with having sex? No matter how much foreplay, I feel like everything is super desensitized down there. Its impossible for me to become aroused. PIV literally feels like nothing, albeit uncomfortable from a penis entering my unaroused vagina. Oral and fingering feels like nothing.

I kinda just have sex since my bf has a high drive. I would literally prefer to do anything else, since it is a little painful but i love him so w.e. Anyone else deal w this shit? I got of an antidepressant of 1 yr, 2 months ago and just stopped my birth control last week because im sick of it and trying new shit.

Basically, send help. Would doctors even take me seriously

Don't shun yourselves for not being exactly like everyone else! If that isn't what you want, it's not what you want. Don't force yourself into it. You'll only disappoint yourself with how little you're enjoying it.

>not wanting to have children is selfish hedonism

I'd be a horrible mother and I've got schizophrenia & major depressive disorder, me not popping out babies is an ethical choice. (I also think it'd be cruel to bring a child into this world, but that's not as relevant.)

OP, have you tried the "pink pill"/female viagra? It might not do anything for you, but it can't really hurt to try.

Anonymous 6637

There's a pill for that. One meant to help you recover, and not be used permanently.

…am I a hoarder?

I use acrylics because they are the only thing I've tried that keep me from biting my nails. Otherwise I've got torn skin all around my nails and bleeding nail beds because I won't stop until I'm in pain. Over the years I guess I've gone a bit crazy with it, but I cant bite my nails anymore so I guess it works? Also the hour or two I spend a week doing tiny paintings or stickers on my nails is quite relaxing.

Fyi those press on ones are great if I'm in a rush. You can even use them twice if you peel off the adhesive they use, clean them, and use nail glue the second time.

I also have a little box of nail glitter in a couple colours and you can't really see the nail oil I made to heal up peeling skin and help my nails grow. I guess I must be good at it by now if my sister in law has me do hers for her.

On a side note, does anyone know why people would make a weird, sort of grouchy face at me when they ask me where I get them done and I say I do them myself?

Do you do your nails regularly?

Lol this.

>>6517
Oh hi, me too. It really helped the nail biting as it is impossible to do that at work.

I'm off work for a few months though so I found myself biting them again. I started doing the stick on acrylics myself so I can't get at them. I just do it once a week, and let my nails recover when they come off after about four days. Before I started this job I used to do them all the time and I was pretty good at it so I'm kind of happy I get to do them again for a little bit.

Not regularly, but I'd like to. I just did my nails today and looking at them makes me happy.

Meditation general Anonymous 6557[Reply]

Meditation is probably the only thing between me and daily nervous breakdowns.
Miners who get their Zen on,
What time of day do you like to meditate?
Where do you like to meditate?
Do you aim to be a blank slate or do you focus on a particular thought, image, mantra, etc?
How long have you been meditating?
What benefits have you noticed in your life?

I’ll start :
I prefer daily in the early morning in my house with the sun rising in the windows but if I’m particularly stressed or anxious then whenever is convenient will do.

I try to keep my mind blank and in tune with my body. I mentally put intrusive thoughts into imaginary boxes for storage.

I have been meditating for closing to 2 years and over time I have become less stressed, more socially capable, and more focused

Anonymous 6608

>>6557
i sometimes meditate by just getting in a comfortable position and focusing on the inbreath and outbreath as much as possible. id like to do it more often though as i did in the past. found it made me a less bitter person

Anonymous 6617

I meditate in the morning if I have time. I meditate at night before I sleep, after filling in a gratitude journal. I do competitive esports (ESL), I meditate before every game; mostly focus or intent meditation. I found I played so much better once I started doing this.

I use guided meditations, in my room, or I’ll find a quiet corner if I’m at a LAN event.

I’ve been meditating for around five years now, initially it started as part of the therapy I was having. I use it for more now. I find it to be incredibly life changing, for me personally anyway. I used to find it was a bit lame, most of my friends and team do. My captain backs it though, as do my family.

I think something like a sleeve or big piece can look nice, but when they're small and scattered they end up looking cheap.

Anonymous 4974

I love the artistry of tattoos. I follow a lot of tattooists on ig. But when I see a person with tattoos, I almost always think they would look better without them. Especially in artistic photos and such. It takes away from their natural beauty. I've thought about getting a tattoo since high school, but this is one of the main reasons I have never gotten one.

Anonymous 6588

I got a stick n poke recently and love it and it makes me want more, more legit, tattoos. I have ideas of what I want next I'm just not 100% ready to commit. I like smaller thinner tattoos too

Anonymous 6589

>Do you like tattoos? Do you have any?
No and never really had any desire to have one.
>Do you think tattoos make people look "cheap" or impulsive, especially if the person has too many?
Yes, but only if that person be it male or female isn't fit. If you just get a tatoo and look like a slob/unhealthy skinny then it looks very trashy to me.
If a person is fit and has good looking body i look at tatoos like minor enhancements to overall image, even if a person has plenty of meme tribal tatoos but still has good looking fit body
