im losing my hearing and I am completely powerless to this, other miners also experiencing hearing loss?

Anonymous 16006

not had this but maybe you can prepare for it? like learn some sign language and how to lipread, learn about the deaf community, get some hobbies that don't involve sound, etc

I have to wear headphones 24/7 when I'm at home due to severe misophonia. I often hear ringing in my ears. My hearing will probably be very damaged one day.

It sucks, you will realize how little patience the world has for people that do not listen/understand them. Like when talking with somebody you dont understand the language of, people get desperste and are like "fuck it im wasting my time". Its a big deal to lose one of the senses.


pussy discharge? 15792[Reply]

You have to break in your moid and set the hierarchy correctly. When the moid eats you out make sure to piss in his mouth. He'll think you're squirting orgasm and believe he's doing a good job because thats what he sees from porn. At the end you want to be the one fucking his ass with a strap on or dildo or anything you can do to emasculate him and put the moid in his place. Don't ever suck his dick or allow piv

some things i want you to know:

discharge is normal and the amount, texture and color changes throughout your menstrual cycle from dry to sticky to creamy to wet to eggwhite etc (if you're not on hormonal birth control ofc). it's best to do some research and get to know what's healthy and what's not. porn might give you a very wrong idea about discharge. it did for me tbh.

if you worry about your discharge and feel uncomfortable about your bf wanting to go down on you, then just relax and tell him you're stressed about it. tell him you would love it (if that's the case ofc) but want to go wash your vulva first to take away the stress. a good bf will understand because he wants you to enjoy it and will find it nice of you that you wanna clean yourself for him
as you can see: communication is key in a relationship
avoid the situation where you don't mention that you're stressed about discharge and end up lying there being completely unrelaxed, not enjoying it fully while ur bf has no clue about this and tries to make you feel nice.
don't pretend to enjoy it while you don't, so tell him about it: worst case scenario: he feels you are not enjoying it but blames it on him instead of you being stressed about your discharge and doesn't end up talking about it

the worst kind of communication isn't an awkward conversation but a situation where you stay silent when you have something to say

he's ur bf, he should know.

ps: don't clean ur vagina (the inside), that's unhealthy. the vagina is able to clean herself! only wash and clean the outside: your vulva!

Anonymous 16001

Tbh just say you want to clean yourself or shower before.

I just tell him "wait", I go to the bathroom and I don't even shower, I just clean down there with water from the sink with my hands. It's fast and it's enough. I wash my hands, my face, and go back.

Anonymous 16002

Personally I don't worry about discharge only the smell especially when it's the evening yk, after the day has passed and you moved around a bit. But I noticed my bf doesn't smell bad down there so my guess is we should not smell so bad either even tho our genetalia is made different and "deep" sort of.

Anonymous 16003

And yeah DONT CLEAN YOUR VAG. DONT CLEAN IT! Let it beeeee. Men barely clean their peepee after peeing. Don't you dare put your health at risk for THAT

The Dance of Anger: A Woman’s Guide to Changing the Patterns of Intimate Relationships
>"Anger is a signal and one worth listening to,"writes Dr. Harriet Lerner, in her renowned classic that has transformed the lives of millions of readers. While anger deserves our attention and respect, women still learn to silence our anger, to deny it entirely, or to vent it in a way that leaves us feeling helpless and powerless. In this engaging and eminently wise book, Dr. Lerner teaches women to identify the true sources of our anger and to use anger as a powerful vehicle for creating lasting change.
The book is efficient.

Cindy Crawford's Basic Face is old but it taught me to have a very healthy relationship with my appearance

some of the advice includes:
>The best way to look beautiful is to be healthy, drink lots of water, and get your rest
>No one needs makeup
>If you choose to wear it, your every-day makeup routine should take 5 minutes or less and enhance the features you like, not hide the ones you don't
>Heavy ballroom-style makeup for regular occasions looks ridiculous and is bad for your skin


abortions Anonymous 12757[Reply]

Hot topic, but what's your opinion of it? I don't like the fact that so many young people act like it's nothing, it's a quite serious topic with many angles to look at it from.
In my opinion abortions should be available until the 8th week, which is around the time the nervous system and brain reach a level of development where the fetus can be called "conscious".
Special circumstances should be available for rape victims.

For fuck's sake, stop browsing r9k. No woman is like this.

>That "tee hee, off to get my 3rd abortion~" mindset makes me want to be pro life purely out of spite
It's not just you, pro life movement as a whole is motivated out of spite. These folks think that having an unwanted child is a punishment for irresponsible women. In the end of the day, no one cares for what actually happens to these children, it's pretty ironic.

abortion is a human (female) right :)

Anonymous 15810

In high school I knew a guy who was your typical brainwashed right winger teen (he only watched feminist get rekt compilations) and I remember i got to talk to him in the context of an english class and the subject of abortions was brought up and he said that he wished abortions were illegal because it kills too many white babies
im scared what he has become now if this was the stuff he'd say in high school

Anonymous 15812

Wow usually I see right wingers agree with abortions because non-whites are supposedly the ones who do it the most.

What would you recommend for a beginner at home? I don't want to get big just lean and stronger/healthier. Should I just buy light lifts and start from there?

Anonymous 15748

push ups
and pull ups if you can do them

there's all kind of tutorials on youtube with a lot of progression, check them out

and for cardio you can do long walks/running/biking

I'd look up r/bodyweightfitness recommended routine (RR). It passed the test of time.
Eventually from there, you might need the added weight, but at the beginning, your body weight is enough.


how to lower glucose levels Anonymous 15832[Reply]

any tips? mine are too high
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous 15866

Fruits mostly contain fructose, so they don’t spike your glucose as much as other carbs. Look up a hypoglycemic index and avoid foods high in glucose. That means anything with processed sugar added especially.

Anonymous 15867

Just stop eating processed/cane sugar altogether. It means cutting out a lot and making food at home, but it's ez once you get into it!
There are good sweeteners out there and making your own sauces/desserts/etc. can be fun. You'll likely lose weight as a side effect, too.
Make sure to check every label, even fucking ketchup and chicken broth (at least in North America) has added sugar.

You may experience cravings but taste buds can definitely be restrained.

Also, this is sustainable since I've been doing it for 2 years (both for acne and to prevent diabetes which runs in my family heavily). Moreso than keto, which may lead to crashing and giving up.

can someone explain to me why healthy recipe blogs and vegans tell people to use agave syrup or coconut sugar instead of regular sugar? its so expensive. is it really worth the money for health reasons?

Upon a search, there is very little benefit compared to cane sugar."Spikes your blood sugar a little less" isn't worth it kek.
Just use stevia.

Lactose intolerance generally results in diarrhea, nausea, or gas. It doesn't mean you dislike milk or that it burns your throat or whatever lmao.
Most people don't experience anything while they consume it, just when it is digesting.

Anonymous 15904

I think you're a bit confused. Lactose intolerant =/= allergic to milk. It's not like a peanut allergy, where you'll swell up or get a rash. That's not lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance means you can taste milk fine, you can drink it just fine, but when your body attempts to digest the lactose it simply lacks the tools. The sugar will get broken down in such a manner that produces a lot of gas and lower digestive distress. You won't die, it won't kill you, you aren't allergic, you'll just a fart a lot and maybe have other bowel issues depending on how severe your intolerance is.

The only other thing I'm aware of that causes massive farting is a sudden change in diet that involves massive amounts of fiber.

Anonymous 15905

Completely off topic, but for future reference, there is such a thing as allergy to milk, and it does act the way you think it does. If you were allergic to milk (not lactose intolerant, allergic) you'd be in a hospital bed at some point.

Anonymous 15906

Okay that is interesting. I always just thought I wasn't lactose intolerant because of how much I love milk lol. Thank you for explaining, i'll try to cut off milk from my diet and see if it improves my farting situation.

OK will try. Thanks!

PCOS Treatment? Anonymous 15380[Reply]

Maybe a weird place to ask, but any other femanons struggling with PCOS and not knowing how to treat it? I don't trust using birth control pills or the like because many seem to report a slew of shitty side effects messing with their already messed up hormones. I don't trust my doctor and don't have a gyno appt. until May.

I noticed symptoms about a year ago and got an ultrasound to confirm the ovarian cysts, and as of the past month I'm noticing an uptick in hormonal acne and I'm starting to notice thinning hair at my scalp. Looking back at old pictures it seems my hair growth slowed down majorly in the past 3 to 4 years and I don't know if that's due to unrecognized PCOS or poor diet (I've struggled to meet my nutritional needs for years) or just genetics or something. I imagine my diet has contributed to developing PCOS. I see a lot of women treat it "naturally" with herbs and supplements but they all say different things.

The effect on my appearance has been contributing to a newfound intense body image insecurity.

Ok, so, I have pretty much all the symptoms of PCOS. I won't go into details besides this involving a thoroughly screwed up cycle.

So, I told this to my primary doctor and she just asked if I
I then asked for a specialist and she said it's just hormones and literally the only thing that can be done is the pill.
I have never been on birth control and I don't really trust it per se.

Is this the normal response? What should I do? Try another doctor or what?

Anonymous 15851

oops, forgot to continue. She just asked if I take birth control. I don't.**

Go to an endocrinologist, a primary care doctor won’t know how to treat PCOS. She’s wrong btw, there are several treatment options.

Anonymous 15854

Thanks for the reaffirmation! Yeah, I sensed something off.
Like, I had two periods in two weeks, I am weirded out but she acted like the ultimate fix is birth control and there's no way of fixing it otherwise.

I will check with my insurance to see what I can work out.


Favorite/Sexiest Men's Clothing Anonymous 11679[Reply]

I'm curious. What type of clothing do you like to see on men? Care to post examples? I love muscular men who wear black v-necks for some reason…

I know other women who like men in 3 piece suits, but men rarely wear them.

I love hairy men and hairy chests and and and… Gimme dat man cleavage. Slightly unbuttoned shirts. Generally though men wearing basic but formal and well put together clothing is what I like, and a lot of nonas have posted in the thread. I hate baggy shirts on men and I despise sweatpants. But the sweatpant thing goes for both genders.
