  • My dad randomly gets dizzy and I don’t know what to do?

    He’s 56 and smokes heavily. Drinks daily, but not to the point of blacking out. Idk the medications he takes, however he hasn’t gone on anything new recently. For the last 4 or 5 months I’ve been helping him with work, he works as a pool man and has been working more due to Covid. Lately I’ve noticed moments where he says he feels dizzy or he’s going to faint. One day we were cleaning a pool he said he felt like he’s going to pass out so I told him to sit down in the shade and made him drink water when we went back to the truck. Another day we were driving on the freeway and he said “whoa” and pulled over saying he got dizzy. He rolled down the window, and after a minute of him getting some fresh air he was seemingly fine again. Just today I went to work with him and we were driving back home on the freeway when I noticed his hands starting to kinda tremble and he was slightly shaking when breathing, and he rolled down a window without saying anything. I knew it was another dizzy episode and got worried and asked if he was okay. He didn’t say anything and kept driving. I held onto the door handle because I didn’t have a good feeling of him driving so close to the edge of a cliff side and the rest of the ride was anxiety-inducing. 

    I’m just a concerned daughter. He’s been doing this for 30 years, but now I’m always scared for him to work alone. I have school so I can’t work with him always. He doesn’t listen to my advice of going to a doctor and never will. That’s how he is. 

  • whats a good distraction/substitute for smoking?

    ive been smoking since i was 14 and now that im 16, ive been planning on quitting for some time, but never seem to do it.

    I am going to Vegas with some friends in about two days. They hate the smoke, and i feel awful when i do so in front or around them. I bought a vape pen a couple months back, to see if that will help, but it didnt do anything and i feel like a 13 yr old wearing a monster snapback when i vape, so thats not an answer.

    is there anything to distract me when im alone or theres nothing to do so i dont whip out a cigarette?

    or a good substitution for it?. any help would be great :-)

  • why does my mom never get me the things I actually want?

    ok I understand that reading that question makes me sound like a self absorbed, whiny brat, but the thing is, is every one of my birthdays or Christmases my mom never gets my anything I will actually use or wear. I once asked for a cute dress that was about 25 and it was black with a dark red collar, and she went out and bought hot pink slippers and neon blue and green shirts. all of those together would have been more expensive than that one dress. I love my mom and appreciate everything she does for me, but sometimes I just don't know if she knows me well enough to know the things I like. I once told her anything in black would suit me fine, and instead she got a bright red 50$ bag, and I don't have a lot of things to hold anyways. maybe she's just getting me things she wants me to like, but really I hate??? honestly if she wrote a card about our inside jokes and made it with a little bit of my personality, I would love it. help me?

  • Should I run away to see a concert?

    Ok I'm 15, my favorite band Joyce manor is playing tonight and my friends invited me to go. My parents said no because it's "last minute" but it's not like I have any plans anyways. I would rather sneak out and go see my favorite bands concert than stay home all day watching tv and sleeping. I mean it's ok to have some risk in your life right? Why listen to everything you parents say and go have some fun for once. I already know that I'll face the wrath when I get home. Should I just go and have a fun time?

  • Did I make myself deaf?

    Ok so I had earwax in my ear and I heard a good way is to put hydrogen peroxide in there, so I did. Then it felt like not all the hydrogen peroxide came out, so I put a q-tip in it and I think I accidentally went too far, because it was a quick small pain when I poked inside too far. Now it feels like I still have a lot of that liquid in my ear and tilting my head and yawning isn't doing anything. Am I deaf out of this ear now?

  • What is it called?

    I have urges to physically injure people, like friends, family, animals, and sometimes strangers. They're quick impulses, but I am unsure what it is. A close friend mentioned a type of OCD.

  • What's good for decoden whip?

    I want to make a decoden phone case and I was wondering what I should use as the whip. I've heard of 100% silicone caulk but I also heard its a hassle to clean up. And also I've heard of polymer clay? But I'm not sure if that's the same squishy feeling I'm looking for in the whip. Also what brand is best? Any help please :)

  • How long until cigarette smoke leaves a room?

    So I usually smoke but I'm trying to stop, yes. So no need to tell me to quit while I'm ahead. Because trust me, I'm working on it. But I had like one in my room and my windows are jammed and won't open so I'm just curious of how long the smell will last. An hour? Two to four hours?

  • Should I admit myself into the hospital?

    Recently, I have been having thoughts of hurting myself. I have self mutilated myself in like 7th to 8th grade? And I stopped for a temporary amount of time. But now the thoughts have returned and gotten worse and I have been thoroughly planning on how I want to kill myself. Also, I have been thinking of hurting others too. Like family, friends, and sometimes people I don't even know. I'm only 15 so I feel like its ridiculous, but I honestly do not trust myself and neither do my parents. My parents won't let me see a therapist or take meds or even consider taking me to a hospital. Please, I just need an honest answer of what I should do.
