    I have diagnosed MYSELF with depression. Its not a suicidal depression, its just like, sad and pessimistic all the time. i push most friends away and i just put on a happy smile so people assume everything is dandy with my life. i work 2 jobs and go to school to escape depression, and it works, but when i come home, i feel this sadness, dark cloud, feeling. theres no major problems at home either. i have had this feeling off and on for about 2 years now. i have always been against anti depressants but there just comes a point where im tried of fighting. i really dont want to see a dr unless i really have too. i dont like disclosing my personal information to people. i dont mind posting on here because i will never talk to any of you prob ever again…

    “In the last few days, it’s become more and more obvious that the country is headed straight for a war with North Korea. There really isn’t much we can do to stop it now, aside from nuking the whole place and calling it a day, which we cannot and should not do. When the United States military began conducting joint military operations with South Korea, it stood as a confirmation that should North Korea act against South Korea (which at this point is inevitable), we’re going to back the South Koreans.

    That’s great and noble and all, but the fact is that we cannot afford it. We already have such a high debt to China that we’ll never be able to pay it off. Even if we try, we cannot possibly grasp how long it will take. With the way our country is headed, spending money like crazy, we will never pay it off, meaning we owe China and we can’t deliver.

    Just a few weeks ago, the government announced that it had purchased an additional 600 billion dollars worth of bonds from the Chinese government. This alone serves to weaken the value of the dollar 10% over night, and up to 25-30% within months. This means that if you have $100 in the bank, it’ll be worth $70-75 in a matter of months.

    When China says no the next time we ask for money, we’re pretty much fucked. If our number one loan source refuses to pay for our wars or problems any longer, where will we turn? Other countries will see that China is refusing and they won’t loan money to us either. Our dollar will be useless, meaning you can’t use it to buy food or clothes or pay for the things you take for granted every single day. We’ll be in a worse position than we were in during the Great Depression. And on top of it all, we’ll still have two wars on our plate.

    So, at this point, our money is worthless and we can’t pay to fight the nuclear and chemical opposition coming from North Korea. It would make sense that we turn to our allies, right?

    In case you haven’t heard, Wikileaks released an absolutely MASSIVE collection of documents today regarding the relationships that the United States has with its allies. Earlier this week, the government warned Canada that it would damage relationships with our allies and lead to “countless deaths.” (If we need to warn Canada that they’re going to be angry with us, what are other countries going to think?)

    Basically, we’ll have no one to back us up, no money, and a country with nuclear weapons (I don’t care what the media says, North Korea has nuclear capabilities) fighting against us.

    So we turn to the UN, right? Wrong. The Wikileaks documents also reveal that Hillary Clinton ordered U.S. diplomats to spy on UN leaders, meaning they’re going to be less than happy about helping us. (Good job, Hillary.)

    In essence, America is fucked. We’re going to face rougher times in the next few years than any of us could have even imagined. Our safety is at stake. Our lives are at stake. It’s not only possible, but probable that this could be the end of the United States of America as we know it.

    I don’t think people understand the magnitude of this situation. It means that we might be looking at the end of an empire. We could be a third-world country in a matter of months.

    So what do we do? Prepare for it. Know how to survive if everything goes wrong. Think about what you’d need to do if an emergency arises. Most of all, ORDER A PASSPORT THIS WEEK IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE ONE. If you need to make a run for it, you’re going to need a passport to get into a different country.

    I can’t express the amount of urgency of the situation. America is at a time right now that our country could very easily cease to exist. Please try to understand that and act upon it. I care about you all enough to not want to see anything bad happen to you, but at this point, it’s virtually inevitable.

    Most of all, prepare yourselves. America is in a bad state of affairs right now it’s not going to get any better any time soon.”

    i really don’t know what to think, can anyone tell me if it’s true or not?

    my boyfriend and i had sex the other day. unfortunately, the condom broke and he already ejaculated inside me. after finding this out, we heard of a pill that a woman can take if such a thing happened that would prevent pregnancy from occurring. we went to the local pharmacy and bought Next Choice. i took the first pill about half an hour after we had sex and took the second pill 12 hours after ingesting the first pill as directed. so now we wait. i was wondering if this is as effective as they say it is. as you can imagine, my boyfriend and i are scared about this whole thing so some good news and further input would definitely ease our minds. thanks.

    My parents married at a later age, and had me two years later, they old went out for six months.
    My mom discovered that my dad was not the person she had thought she went out with when it came closer to marriage and she almost left him but decided not to against her family’s wishes.

    My mom realized that this relationship was abusive and my dad did not treat her well and she had to serve his parents for many years.

    After they married, my mom had to move away from all of her family to a small community where my dad worked.

    She found a job there and is still working.

    When I was younger my dad was not very close to me, and was physically, verbally and emotionally abusive to my mother and I. I remember my parents fighting every weekend, and I don’t recall why. I do remember that I wasn’t close to him and he made no effort to be close to me. My mom was always the one I talked to and was the one who was always there for me. My mom did not like his parents because they took advantage of her and accused her of many things. When I was 8 or so, my grandmother (my dads mom) moved in with us because she had dementia and was unwell and because her husband (my dads dad) died. My dad put her in our dining room, and she needed a caregiver because she would need assitance going to the washroom or getting up. During this time, my dad completly ignored me, and my mom was the only one there for me. My mom shortly after fell into depression because of what my dad did, after he knew she didn’t want that. This grandmother was incontenent and wrecked our dining room. She lived with us for four years before passing. My mom came out of her depression in the third year. Prior to this, I would run after girls, and got in trouble once for kissing a girl. During this time though, I started looking up pictures of shirtless men and men with tattoos and kept copies of them hidden in my room. I recall searching for tattooed men and printing their pictures out. When my grandmother died, my dad was somewhat better as I had grown older but he realized that all he had left was my mom and I. In school I was bullied and I had no friends so I did not have a good time over those years. Into the second year we moved into a bigger house, and my grandmother moved into a suite with her caregiver in the basement. My mom felt it was neccessary for our well-being, as she felt she didn’t want to have me see all this or for her to see it. Even when moving into our new house, my dad was very far from me and I continued to look up pictures of guys on the internet. Ironically, I had a crush since grade 4 and still do to this day to a really pretty and smart girl. Closer to the end of elementary, I hung out mainly with girls. As I got into middle school, I learned about what gay and straight was and about sex later on. I have to say I learned about masterbation quite late from another student. I then learned from school highschool kids what porn was and began to watch straight porn. I have to say I watched it for the men, not for the women. Since getting body hair, I have always shaved everything cuz I find it disgusting. I was called gay in middle school because they felt i was, I denied it, because I did not know myself. In grade 8 and 9 I started making male friends. Today, I’m in grade 10 confused about my sexuality orientation and I think I’m gay. I materbate to gay porn and have the urge to get intimate with male. I have an issue with younger kids in my school calling eachother gay and stand up for those who are despite not knowing if I am or not. I am not attracted to every guy out there and not the every girl either. I am not really like other boys my age, I like to interact with guys I find HOT. Personally, I’m not sure if I am or not, though I feel good looking at muscular males on the internet, not at girls, however I am mainly friends with them. I also read this article that said many of those who are anti-gay are gay themselves, and I must say till grade 9 I was extremely anti-gay. On a seperate note, I am still abused verbally and emotionally by my dad and my mom does not say anything. I do really good in school and have a job, which allows me to make friends with others. I have two more years before I got to university and I want to go far from my parents because I need the breathing space. I think will know better what I’m into when I get that space. My dad is a doctor and my mom is a nurse. My dad is anti-gay and my mom is too. I hinted once that I may be, but my parents went on about AIDS. I sometimes have those moments like its just a stage and you’ll like women if you just go along with the flow, but I’m not sure. I don’t have any other family here besides them, the rest are two hours drive from here, which I see sometimes three times a year.Am I gay? Should I come out to them? Should I come out to everyone?
