Anonymous asked: i have a serious binge eating problem. i don't know what to do anymore i've tried everything, from portioning my meals to drinking lots of water and keeping myself busy... it doesn't matter what i do, i always end up eating absolutely everything in sight. i want to lose weight for summer but at this rate that won't happen. i'm totally addicted to food and i have no control :( Is there any advice you can offer? thank you

This is a tough one. It seems psychological, which is always hard to work with. I’d say talk to a doctor for help, sometimes they do help a lot but if you want to try to do things at home, try rewarding yourself when you eat “properly” and don’t get down on yourself when you can’t! Also, if you eat foods with higher fiber content, it’ll make you feel fuller faster so it’ll be harder to eat more.

Anonymous asked: I exercise 2 hours a day 5 Times a week, I haven't had my period, I'm one week late. Do you think it has to do with that? I'm a virgin so I can't be pregnant.

It actually wouldn’t! Studies have shown exercising at least an hour a day can help lessen them. sometimes periods are late, but if it gets to be 2 or 3+ weeks late, talk to your doctor because it could be a hormone imbalance. Good luck and be well! 

a-vintagenightmare asked: I've been having back pain recently due to sports, but this morning I started having shooting pains on the right side of my my lower back, is it just muscle pain or could it be kidney stones.. I'm 15, and the thought of kidney stones scares me..

I’d get it checked out if you can! Even if it’s just muscle pain, it’s not normal for it to be shooting pains! it could mean something is torn

Anonymous asked: I have been on the pill for about 4 months, i came off it and had a normal period about 2 weeks ago but i got some blood clots and I am not sure it's because my cycle is sorting it's self out and I have not had any unprotected sex either, im just getting a little worried ;o

Believe it or not, clots are quite normal with periods! I mean if you’re really nervous get it checked, but it’s normal! when the uterus shed’s it’s lining it might not come off little by little, and coming off and out in a large amount can actually form a clot.

Anonymous asked: hello! so I'm a female and I'm 15 years old. My stomach area was extremely hairy (although it was still light/fine) so I decided to shave it. I realise shaving it was a bad idea now :( it is now thick and dark and it's left me with a snailtrail like a man. Is there a cheap way to remove or lighten the hair for a long period of time so I don't have to constantly attend to it? Just anything. It gets me down and I need help please xxxxxx

bleaching hair usually works for a little while, if it doesn’t grow fast. Sometimes waxing or using a hair removal lotion keeps it away anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. These how ever aren’t permanent, and bleaching needs to be done carefully, because likely there is still more skin than hair. More permanent options are laser treatments, but those are rather costly. I hope this helps! I’m sorry I couldn’t give clearer advice xxxxx

So, I just learned today that these adorable little fuzzy caterpillars are scary as hell.

You’d probably never guess that petting one can cause agonizing pain, rashes, internal bleeding, breathing difficulty, welts, or other violent reactions. Their fur is venomous spines. Look at how they purposely appear so cute and soft and make you want to touch them.

Deceptive deadly little motherfuckers.

The more you know.

never petting cute fuzzy caterpillars again omg

Never touch any fuzzy ones. Most will give you a annoying rash, in the least. Don’t chance it.

So Folks, Livvie has strep throat! I’m going to do a quick write up on it in a bit. And now for a PSA

I won’t be updating for a bit, I have to turn my laptop in on the 11th, because i am using a school loaned one. Once in a while I’ll update from my Ipod or my moms laptop, but since both are hard to use…… Yeah. It’s not like I update everyday or anything, but i won’t be able to. So in the mean time, send questions, and or things you’d like me to talk about!

…. So you’re saying that we should be drinking human milk. Oh. Cause this makes sense.

Doctors do some stupid shit to make you keep going back to them, so they get more money, but actually put you in danger? No. I’ve gone a couple months without milk, now i didn’t get a fracture, but guess what. I had more joint pain, I was stiffer, I was having bonepain.Yes, that’s right. You can have pain, IN YOUR BONES. Cow’s milk isn’t that bad for you. It really isn’t. Yes, you could argue with the pasteurization, But be my guest to drink unpasteurized milk. see how fast you get sick/gain weight. And I know the hormones put into the cows is awful. but it’s only the hormones making our bones long, and a little weaker. If you keep up your vitamin D and your Calcium intake, it’s really not that bad for you. Guess what folks? If you stop drinking milk because of hormones, Stop eating chicken, beef, pork, turkey, soy products, wheat products, vegetables and fruits.Farms use steroids, and other growth provoking products, even in organic products. There are reasons, people, that places all around the world have been drinking COWS milk. For real, guys. They may have less fractures, because the doctors take better care of the people, For christ’s sake, in Europe, most countries have government health care. Which means everyone has it, so, more health care. Less fractures? They take better care of their athletes, which is where most of our fractures total up from. Have you noticed the US schools push their athletes so hard, and over the edge? Or maybe just think, we have stupider people who do stupid stuff. Cow’s milk is the best source of calcium, I mean, who wants to be popping pills everyday? You’d need to eat approximately 7 cups of broccoli to make the days worth of it. http://www.fitsugar.com/How-Much-Calcium-182622

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease of the skin. This disease occurs when one of the main features of the immune system – recognition between self and non-self — is compromised.
We shed skin periodically as an immunity measure for the body. When cells of the first layer are shed, the second layer is already beneath it. Since this takes place on a microscopic level, we do not notice it. However, in psoriasis, our brain gets confused and identifies our own skin as a potential threat to our body. Therefore, T-cells attack our skin at various points on our body. This causes a major inflammation and in order the heal the damage, the skin undergoes rapid growth which leads to over accumulation of skin layers. Since the upper layers haven’t been shed yet and there are already multiple layers formed, the skin  appears scaly and reddish at various places, similar to a rash. Having such rashes all over the body due to major confusion in our immune system is known as psoriasis.
People afflicted with Psoriasis exhibit the following symptoms:
Rashes
Scaly red inflamed skin
Flaky scalp and skin
Pitted fingernails
Psoriasis is caused by immune system, hence drugs like methotrexate and cyclosporin are used. Sometimes, drugs like infliximab and adalimumab are used.
