I completely understand Marianne:) It's really up to us old timers to help the newbies out.  And I understand the frustration about duplicate posts. Oh well....:) lol You're not alone in your frustration.:)

(((HUGS))) Marianne I used to feel this same way...until I tried searching for a thread I knew existed, but couldn't find it. I searched using key words, but it never came up. I have also tried searching for an answer to a question I had, and the threads that came up didn't really help much. I do agree some topics are getting annoying, but I just don't read them anymore.:) Take care and stay cool! I've been dying down here in southern AZ!

Sticky's would be a great addition here and it has been mentioned several times. So maybe someday...:)

I totally understand your frustration Spirochete. I have taken several breaks from CC because I couldn't take it anymore, and somedays I just avoid some topics. I hope you stick around.:) I find it very difficult sometimes to read these types of threads. It is heartbreaking, and whenever I post in one, I am hoping maybe something I say will turn them around. Anyway, I do hope you will stick around.

I've seen it happen a few times, where a person is determined to eat too few calories, and with the help, support and encouragement of the wonderful people on this site, have turned around. They finally got it through their heads that eating too little was doing damage to their bodies. If some of you are tired of reading and responding to girlywhirly's post, maybe just not read them. Maybe just step back and let other people on this site, who are still willing to offer support, try to get through to her.

Girlywhirly- I do think you need to talk to someone you trust about this though. And maybe Trustwomen has a good point. Sometimes counting calories just makes you become more obsessive, and for someone who is suffering from an ED, it's probably not the best thing. I would reach out to some of the people on this site who are recovering from ED's. There are threads in the Health forum. Good luck to you.

Natural hair wigs can be very expensive. Since it's for Halloween, I would go with synthetic hair. Here's a website that you may find what you are looking for.:) Hope this helps! amp;filter_list=f_costume_styles

Weight Loss Food. Just sort of a complaint. Jul 13 2007

That happens to me sometimes too. I will lose my appetite when it's really hot outside. When that happens, I drink Ensure shakes to get my calories up a bit.:)
The Lounge I love my husband, but... Jul 13 2007
03:33 (UTC)
Some men are just clueless. He is probably just used to you doing everything, so he doesn't give it a second thought. One thing I have learned about my husband...never assume he is going to read my mind and just do something. I also never get angry and demand he do something. I instead asked him if he could please help me clear the table, do the dishes, etc. He's always happy to lend a hand when I ask him.:)
The Lounge OK, I'm going to get implants, and I need help Jul 13 2007

tina_b- If you do decide to go up a cup size or two, you will still need to wear a bra. Your breasts will be heavier, and if you don't wear a good, supportive bra, you will end up with stretch marks. Chances are, even with a supportive bra, you will still most likely end up with them if you decide to go bigger. I am a 34D, and I have always worn a supportive bra and I have stretch marks. Just something to think about.:)
The Lounge Out of "Plus Sizes" onto Regular. Where do you shop? Jul 07 2007

Apple Bottom Jeans are really cute, and made with a little extra room in the hips and butt. I know Macy's and Dillards (not sure if you have those stores in your area) carries them, and you will find them in the Jr's section.:)
