  • Sharp abdominal pain?

    Last night as I was going to bed I was getting a sharp pain in my lower abdomen in the middle. I couldn't sleep because it was so bad and ended up taking a Tylenol to help me fall asleep. I woke up feeling better, but it was still painful. The fetal position is the only thing that works to keep the pain at bay. On Saturday I had a bad diarrhea episode but I felt fine, I'm not sure if this is related to that incident. RIght now I'm still in pain and have a nasty headache.

  • What could these skin bumps be?

    I first noticed a couple years ago some itchy bumps like mosquito bites that were appearing on my legs. As I itched them, more came so they were obviously contagious. I used apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and taped it to the bumps, and it seemed to have killed them because they scabbed over and healed, but left scars that look like the kind you get after picking a scab multiple times. I thought I took care of the problem but obviously not because they came back. I did the ACV again and all went well. But I picked a scab on one of them and noticed that it doesn't bleed like normal, instead it's like a crater that's maybe 0.5mm deep in my skin that's white at the bottom, it resembles fat. I don't think it's deep enough to be fat though. What could these bumps be?

  • How can I quit a job I like?

    I won't go into details, but I was stuck in the middle of a personal disagreement between my two bosses and I was demoted as a result of it. I didn't do anything wrong, it was nobody's fault, it just happened because of a situation that never should have occured. I enjoy my job there, but I can't stay. I've been working so hard there, I put in 54 hours there last week and for me to be subject to a demotion through no fault of my own is a kick in the teeth. I can't put up with that anymore so I'm going to quit. How do I do it?

  • What would you do in this situation?

    (Background: I’m 16 working at the till at a golf course. About a month ago I was promoted from being a cart washer, although I can’t be in the shop alone because I can’t sell liquor). Yesterday my boss (the owner of the course) demoted me back to carts for no apparent reason. She just said that it’s too risky for her liquor license and liability, which was completely random because I didn’t do anything wrong. I agreed to work 8 hours a day for 10 days straight because I know the course needs me those days, and for her to punish me after that is a real kick in the teeth. She clearly takes me for granted. The only thing stopping me from quitting on the spot with no notice is my respect for my other boss, the manager of the course (who agrees with me in this). I know that he needs me to help out and I don’t want to leave him hanging. What should I do in this situation?

  • Pros and cons of doing online school?

    I'm going into grade 11 this year, school starts in a week. My school has ridiculous measures in place like mandatory masks, making us clean desks before and after class, washing hands after each class, social distancing, staggered lunch times, and way more. I find it extremely overdramatic and unnecessary and I will definitely get sick of it. I have the self discipline to do online school as well as the ability to teach myself concepts that I don't understand. I did well doing online during the last semester, although my only concern is that grade 11 is the most important year, at least in my area. Universities primarily look at grade 11 marks when you apply, so I want to minimize my risk of messing up my grades this year. I can go to school for the first week and my school is allowing us to make the decision to switch within that week if we want. I'll have a better idea once school starts and I know what it feels like, but I want to think ahead so I'm not stuck to make a decision in 5 days.

  • How to make more tips as a golf course cashier?

    I'm a 16 year old girl working as a cashier at a golf course. People don't really feel obligated to tip the same way they do at a restaurant. I make around $30 on an average day compared to around a total of $4000 in sales. I have to wear a mask so smiling isn't so effective.

  • Pain in pinky side of wrist?

    For the past couple of days, the pinky side of my wrist has been sore. It's more on the outside/top of my wrist. It's a constant low level pain, but worsens when I move it. It's most painful when I bend my wrist backwards, so that my arm is perpendicular to the floor but my hand is parallel to the floor with my palm facing up. I can't think of anything I would have done to it, it just started gradually and it's worse today than it was yesterday or the day before. 

  • Is it normal for nobody to cook dinner in a family?

    For the past couple months, my mom has kind of stopped making family dinners. I live in a family of 5, kids aged 10, 14 and 16 (me). For my whole life, my mom has cooked dinner around 5 nights a week. Nothing seems to have changed in her life, she doesn’t feel like it anymore. Now, we’re pretty much fending for ourselves. Sometimes my dad will throw some chicken wings and fries in the oven to feed us. Most of the time, we have to cook something for ourselves and my mom or dad will make something for my 10 year old sister. Is this normal in a family?

  • How to bring a hamster camping?

    Next month my family and I are going camping for 3 nights. My 14 year old brother is staying home as he has to take care of his baby chicks. I would leave my hamster home, but my brother hates him with a passion and I’m afraid that he’ll hurt him if I leave him alone. My biggest concern is that it may get too hot in the day and too cold at night for him. Is there any way I can bring him camping?

  • How to say no to your boss?

    (Background: I'm 16, working 35-40 hrs a week at a golf course) My boss just texted me and said that the owner of the course is asking me if I can help her out a bit in the morning next Saturday and Sunday. I already work 2-10 on Saturdays and Sundays and I want my mornings to be open. I can't tell my boss that I can't do it because he knows that I'll be available those days to work my regular shifts. How can I tell him no without being rude?

  • Will a typo on car registration void it?

    I’m taking my drivers test in two days and I’m using my grandparents car. The name on the registration has to match the name on the insurance, but there’s a typo on the registration. It’s not a huge one, there’s just 2 k’s when there should be 1 and only 1 o when there should be 2. Everything else, the address and the rest of the name match. Will this be a problem?

  • Would I have failed my driver's test for making these errors?

    Yesterday I did a practice test with my driving instructor. I made two errors that he said may have failed me. The first one was that I went too fast through a yield, even though I checked for other cars a pedestrians and did slow down, apparently just not enough. My second error was with parallel parking, when positioning myself with the car I was going to park behind, I was closer than a meter away. He said that may have failed me as well.

  • How to relieve sore legs?

    My job requires a lot of walking, I typically take around 12 000 steps in an 8 hour shift. By the time I get home, my legs and feet are sore as well as my back. I can't take a Tylenol every time this happens, so I'm looking for a more natural way to relieve my leg pain.

  • Is it legal for a minor to restock alcoholic beverages in Alberta, Canada?

    I'm 16, and I was wondering if it's legal for me to move alcoholic drinks from the back to the front where customers buy them. I'm not selling anything, just restocking the beer fridges. One of my coworkers told me it's not legal, but my boss has never had a problem with it.
