What do I tell my parents? They keep getting furious with me for asking simple questions like ‘what did I eat for lunch yesterday’.
I’m supposed to keep a food journal for medical purposes and sometimes I forget to write something down. Then I’m stuck trying to remember what I ate.
Maybe it’s better if I just shut up and stop asking questions and such. It just makes me cry when my mother starts yelling. Then she asks why I’m upset and makes me feel stupid for even being upset.
It’s making me kinda depressed, especially since my health is stressing me out right now too.
But maybe not talking at all around them would fix things?

I know I’ll need a Doctor to diagnose it fully, but I want to have an idea of what I might have.
Constipation (pretty much throughout my whole life)
Irritable bowel syndrome seems to fit what I have the best. It’s been a problem all my life but once I hit my teen years, things definitely became more noticeable, and in the last year, way more noticeable.
It’s a constant problem at this point. I’m unsure of what to do. Sometimes (very rarely) there will be pain that makes it hard to even get up.3 AnswersOther - Diseases5 months ago
I’m going to be really sad if I ever get it truly diagnosed. Not sure what it is or if it can be cured.
But the top two likely things it could be is a gluten intolerance, or a dairy intolerance.
My family wants to try skipping gluten products for a little while to see if it helps. And then the same for dairy.
Most of the food in my home has gluten unfortunately.
So when I go on this, breakfast is definitely out of the picture. Cereal 👎 toast/pancakes/bagels 👎
Snacks too. Most of my snacks on hand have gluten. With quarantine going on it’ll be harder to get my hands on stuff without gluten.
For dairy too. I really like dairy. If I cut that out that’s a big chunk of everything I eat. I already cut milk out mostly so it’d be more manageable but still. Cereal without milk?
And then what if I somehow end up with intolerance of both. Because a lot of my symptoms match up and my stomach always ******* hurts or I feel nauseous.
Seems like I’m about to be forced out of eating all my favorite foods and meals here.
Whatever I guess.1 AnswerOther - Diseases5 months ago
How does one confront their mother (who means no harm) about them referring to their coworker as their ‘trans coworker’.
I don’t really know if this is something something should or shouldn’t do, but my mother thinks it’s okay to talk about them as if their one defining feature is that they’re trans.
I think she does this because she wants to show she’s supportive of the trans and LGBT+ community, however, I wouldn’t want to be known only for the fact that I’m gay. I’m just me. Sure I like girls but why should that matter. You don’t go up to someone and say ‘hey this is my gay friend’
Just like you don’t go ‘hey this is my trans friend’
You just say ‘hey this is my friend (insert name)
Idk I just don’t want to make my mother feel like she’s a horrible person. And I don’t know how to bring it up in a delicate manner.6 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender5 months ago
It happens semi frequently. Once every month/every other month
Intense cramps are followed by a long trip to the bathroom or multiple trips.
My **** is mostly liquid and it BURNS.
I do not believe this is due to any food related allergies and I’m not taking any medications.4 AnswersPain & Pain Management7 months ago
No, it’s not like a full on nose bleed.
My snot is bloody, and when I blow my nose there’s some blood too.
In addition, it makes it hard to breathe through my nose.
Sometimes it’s just in one nostril, but it switches between them and sometimes it’s both.2 AnswersAllergies7 months ago
One side of my face feels rather odd. (Sorta feels numb but I can still feel it. It’s like it’s halfway to being numb. )
It also feels heavy kinda.
It might not be the cause but I’ve started eating bananas and it seems to happen around the time I eat them.2 AnswersPain & Pain Management7 months ago
I want suggestions on how I can alter my diet to help avoid constipation.
My stomach always hurts. I drink plenty of water each day too, so that’s not the issue. I also have the same diet as my immediate family and they do not have this issue5 AnswersDiet & Fitness8 months ago
For as long as I can remember I’ve never had a ‘normal’ poo.
Like, there’s been isolated times that I’ve actually had a normal one but not usually.
Right now I’m not on a normal schedule either. Just passed some stool for the first time in 5 days. And before that I’ve had times where it’s been 9 days.
My ‘normal’ is every other day, and the stool is round and hard to pass.
I have constant stomach pain/ache/nausea
Gone to doctor once. Told me to drink more water, eat more fruit

I’ve been doing just that and have the same diet as my direct family who does not have these problems4 AnswersOther - Health8 months ago
A sex refers to what sexual organs and secondary sex characteristics one is born with. It defines the way you are able to reproduce. That is all it refers to.
A pronoun is a word to describe oneself, regardless of what sexual organs, and secondary sex characteristics you have. This is not related to reproduction. This is completely separate from sex.
A lot of people will appreciate if others are more educated about this.
[Please do not comment hatefully. These are definitions of certain words and how to use them correctly. If you do end up finding yourself wanting to type hateful words, please reconsider. Do some genuine research first. Drink some water. And then get a good nights rest before you even think to criticize others and pull them down into suffering.]3 AnswersPsychology9 months ago
I had a timer set on my phone. I deleted it however.
It still goes off. It’s kinda annoying. I don’t want this to continue. This is an iPhone 8 (I think)
The alarm had been set to go once a week.
Please don’t suggest I replace my phone. I don’t have the money to take it into a store and get it fixed. I want solutions I can do myself.2 AnswersCell Phones & Plans9 months ago

I have a bearded dragon who keeps seeing his reflection in the glass and then goes running around his tank trying to attack his reflection. How do I stop this from happening ?
I still want to be able to see him though, I’ve already covered two of the sides with non reflective fabric.
I need him to stop climbing around he’s already concerning me that he might hurt himself if he falls off something recklessly.4 AnswersReptiles2 years ago
I’ve had abdominal pains for a while. The other day my motor skills in my right arm were lacking and it felt odd.
I am only 16 and I can’t really go to a doctor on my own.2 AnswersPain & Pain Management2 years ago
I know sometimes stomach pains once in a while are fine but occasionally I’ll have a sharp pain in random places. A few years ago I had thought I had appendicitis but I went to the hospital but they said I was completely fine. There’s no patterns really. I can be sitting completely still and I’ll feel pain randomly throughout my day.3 AnswersPain & Pain Management2 years ago
