    Should I quit nursing school?

    I’m suppose to graduate in August. First 4 semesters were amazing. I felt I was learning a lot doing great. Straight As. 

    Now I’m slowly deteriorating. Anxiety everyday. Crying episodes everyday. My teacher doesn’t lecture or teach us. All he does is assign us 13 chapters to read each week, no study guide or any direction on what material to focus on. I’m so overwhelmed. At this point I’m debating if I even want to be a nurse anymore. If I’m this unhappy daily, how happy would I be when I’m an actual nurse? I thought this was something I wanted to do. But I guess it’s not. The horrible feelings I get thinking about it makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry. My chest feels like it’s going to explode from anxiety. All I do is sit at home alone all day and read and read and read. I feel like I’m falling deeper and deeper into a depression. I try to write positive affirmations and I try to meditate to relieve my anxiety. It doesn’t help. I still feel like I’m going to explode. This semester started in March, I have now lost 8 lbs. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. I’ve reached out to my schools counselors and they are no help, all they tell me is “keep studying, take deep breathes”

    I don’t want to regret my decision if I do quit. But I also am so tired of being so unhappy and anxious 24/7. I wish I could take a mental break and just breathe and relax and not worry. I’m so overwhelmed and scared and unhappy..

    Rolled my ankle and heard a loud pop, felt really nauseous afterwards. Should I go to the hospital?

    I was in a hurry, so I stood up while my leg was asleep and ended up rolling my ankle really badly. There was a loud pop or crack when it happened, and it hurt immediately. Still does. It didn't immediately swell up or bruise, but I got super nauseous afterwards and thought I was going to be sick, and it took me a minute to feel like I could move from the spot on the ground, beyond just because of the pain because of how sick and dizzy I felt suddenly. 

    Should I go to the hospital? What should I do?

    How to not be embarrassed taking trash out?

    Favourite answer:

    You can try taking the trash out at different times of day or early morning. You said the dumpster closes at 9pm so try and take two bags at a time if it gets closer to the closing time. I’ve been there before and I know how hard it is to do the little things like keeping a clean space. I just want you to know how proud I am of you for getting up and getting dressed and cleaning your apartment. You could also have a trusted friend who knows what your going through come over and help you and you could take turns going and taking the trash out

    Would you report this?! ?

    If you were a student and you had a clinical rotation with a doctor (psychiatrist) and he looked at you inappropriately as in checking out your butt and chest almost every time you are there. It was a glance but still it’s inappropriate....

    That’s what happened to me. He would look at my butt when I bend down and I turn around and he quickly looks away. Then when I get up to leave he checks out my body....it makes me feel uncomfortable and grossed out because it’s unwanted attention...And he is 60 years old...

    I can understand if he did it once but almost every time I was there...it’s not ok Would you report it to your school? Yes or no? Why or why not?

    What is the reason medical providers and hospitals list your race on your records?

    Favourite answer:

    You may not be aware, but different ethnic groups are subject to different health problems. Your doctors really need to know if you look white but have significant, say, African (northern or sub-Saharan) or Mediterranean or Asian ancestry.

    And Native American/Amerindian matters, too.Yes, oddly, it has been found that some medications work better in some groups than in others.  That's not widely true so far, but as more testing is done, it may be found that more drugs have that effect.

    If I get a prostate exam will I be considered gay?

    My doctor says I need a prostate exam but I’m afraid I’ll like his finger inside me and discover that I am gay. Should I get the exam or ask for an alternative?

    I'm not taking the covid vaccine?

    One again yahoo took down one of my question. I'm not alone as my mom and paternal grandparents as well as my great grandfather who's 97 or 98 doesn't trust the vaccine. Its too new and we have no idea what side effects it could cause us. Yes the main reason I'm not taking it is because i heard it can cause infertility. Yes it was on facebook I read this and yes I know it is probably not true but seeing as being a mother is really the only thing I care about, why would I take any chances with my body. This is not the inly reason though as I don't trust it in general. If somebody just handed you a bottle of medicine and said it can cure cancer would you take it even though you have no idea if it would work or what was in it or what it would do to you? My mom said she heard of someone getting covid after getting the vaccine. There are so many things in this world that we can get sick from and easily pass on others but nobody freaks out if you don't get the flu shot. One time I caught the flu from my grandmother just by stepping one foot into her bedroom, I had had no contact with her before then and I was sick for 2 days. I feel as though once the vaccine is not new anymore and we started hearing about more and more if he will be absolutely fine and still being able to get pregnant carry to full term and deliver a healthy baby, then I'll probably be fine getting the vaccine. I guess my question is what is your thought on it?

    Is it old to lose your virginity at nineteen or twenty as a woman?

    Favourite answer:

    No, it isn't. Some people lost their virginity at this age, others don't. Some people wait until they're older, so don't lose their virginity until they're an adult. Some people never do, due to not having children, or not having biological children.

    The average age when someone has sex for the first time is 16. Some countries it's forbidden until a certain age, for example in the UK, it's 16, and it's 17 in the republic of Ireland. In some countries, it's illegal to have sex outside of marriage.

    How to handle anxiety ?

    Hi, I’m here to ask one question because I want to know. So I have mild anxiety, I never really get panic attacks, my anxiety flares up mostly at night time because ten years ago I had my first panic attack in my sleep and ever since I’ve been messed up diagnosed with mild depression and anxiety. Long story short, recently I’ve been having issues driving over bridges with water or higher than normal bridges or long ones. Reason why is not because it’s water, or whatever , reason why is because I’m afraid I’ll get an anxiety attack and drive off and kill myself and my family. I’m afraid of dying and I’m afraid at the panic attack moment my brain will make that decision just so it doesn’t have to panic. Never happened before but I always get anxious driving over bridges. Is this normal? Like can you reassure me that I actually won’t drive off the bridge even with high anxiety during that 15-20 seconds? Also same goes with elevators and planes, I get scared of getting a panic attack because I have no way out if I do and I’m afraid of doing something bad even tho I never did. I think in a way I have agoraphobia. Help me answer this question so I can be peaceful? Btw I’m 28 and a male and don’t want to spend rest of my life worrying about this ****.

    Will my baby inherit my depression and anxiety?

    I suffer really bad with anxiety and depression and I have done for years.

    Me and my girlfriend recently had a surprise baby which we didn't have a clue about and she didn't even know she was pregnant.

    I am so happy, but at the same time I am really worried, because I keep thinking that she is going to have depression and anxiety when she is older because I have passed it onto her.

    HELP. I love my girlfriend very much. But every time we’re intimate I can’t help but notice how her vaj looks like roast beef. It’s kinda gross looking to be honest and a bit of a turn off. How do I tell her she has beef curtains without hurting her feelings?
