  • Should I say anything to my friend?

    My friend asked me a question about a doctor's appointment I had had, I answered and then said I was still having some pain. She made me mad by saying I was just having tenderness. How would she know what I'm feeling. I said it wasn't tenderness, it was actually pain and she argued with me, saying she had tenderness also. I then... show more
    My friend asked me a question about a doctor's appointment I had had, I answered and then said I was still having some pain. She made me mad by saying I was just having tenderness. How would she know what I'm feeling. I said it wasn't tenderness, it was actually pain and she argued with me, saying she had tenderness also. I then asked (in a kind of loud voice) if the "tenderness" was stabbing and she told me to calm down and proceeded to assure that I only had tenderness. I felt it was totally disrespectful to tell me what I'm feeling. On the other hand, I don't usually make a big deal out of stuff. Also, a couple of weeks ago we were talking to another friend about her getting an apartment. My friend said that apartments were expensive but that I had lucked out by being where I am so long. Well, first of all, she has no idea how much rent I pay. For the fun of it, I looked in the apt listings and my rent is in the range of other 1 br apartments in the area. Anyway, I'm kind of mad about the pain/tenderness thing, and realizing that she's always assuming facts not in evidence, that she will actually argue with you about, and was wondering if I should say something, or just seethe in silence?

  • Has anyone ever heard of window etiquette in the south?

    Its something about not looking out of a certain side of the house because that's the neighbor's yard and you're not respecting their privacy?

  • Found an old piece of medical equipment?

    My great-grandfather was an obstetrician. We found a brown box somewhere in the 8 inches, by 8 inches by 8 inches range (just an estimate). It has a plug in, and then it has a cord with an odd-shaped lightbulb at the end. It was patented in 1913. Anyone have any ideas what this might be? My mom thinks it's a torture device, LOL.

    and then about a month later, when the baby had been placed with adoptive parents, I wanted the child back, what would happen? Totally hypothetical.

  • Why aren't 911 calls included in doctor/patient confidentiality?

    If the whole point of doctor patient confidentiality is to ensure that people will seek out help when they need it without fear of embarrassment, why aren't calls for ambulances afforded the same respect?

  • Who do you think voted for Chloe last night on Dance Moms?

    Choe got three votes. We know for a fact that Christie voted for her, and I'm pretty sure Paige voted for. Kelly pulled that thing where she voted for Paige, so I'm just wondering if there are any theories about who the third vote was from?

  • Should we abolish all laws?

    I see a lot of arguments for legal abortion and marijuana saying that people will do it anyway. Since most laws are broken, should we legalize, murder, theft, and rape on the grounds that people will do it anyway?

  • Is it true that if you work for a non-prof funded by government you don't pay as much income tax?

    I have a friend who works for a non-prof and she was telling her sister about a job opening and telling her she wouldn't pay very much in taxes because her pay would be funded by Medicaid. I wouldn't think that would made any difference. Earned income is earned income, right?

It was abour 4. Her sister told her that it was illegal to withhold food. You can't send a child to bed without his supper. And she also told of another story where a boy had just eaten supper at 5:30 and she was told not to give him any food as he had been naughty during supper. She reported them as she was going to have him for three hours and this was illegal. He was 9, if that makes any difference. Is it really illegal to withhold food for a few hours. Not even a whole or half of a day mind you, but a few hours? If so, when will the government interference stop?
