So, I think I am gonna go to Ikea and get patio furniture today to surprise my husband so we can have drinks on our patio this week. We haven't had time to go to IKEA (because it is a total time-suck) but what do you guys feel about the APPLARO series: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/series/14213/

Thank you for everyone who responded to me about my husband feeling traumatized after a workplace accident. Things at his work are getting worse: 12 hour shifts and no days off. But... he is working with a counselor and a psychitrist and it looks like he is going to be able to do light duty for a bit. I appreciate Read more

I think my husband is depressed. Well, not depressed but dealing with an incredible amount of grief that if he doesn't deal with, his grief is going to turn into depression. My husband is in the military and at his workplace, his friend died during a workplace accident due to safety violations. His friend was crushed Read more

So, I have been listening to Dr. Laura every afternoon. It always puts me in a better mood. My grandmother would always listen to her when she visited in the early 90's and she enjoyed how mean Dr. Laura was. Frankly, I didn't even know she was on the radio and I don't understand how people listen for legitimate Read more

Does anyone know how long the whopping cough vaccine is valid for? I am on the CDC website and cannot find a definite answer. My husband most likely got the shot when he enlisted in the military over 6 years ago. And I got it like 4 years ago in the military. Our midwife wants us to get immunized now during my third Read more

Anyone have a Dremmel? I was thinking of purchasing one for my husband for his birthday because I know there are tons of different bits to put on it and it is very multi-functional. He likes to do different projects and wants to build a lot of filmmaking equipment. Any input would be appreciated.

I am pretty sure I have perinatal depression. I don't know if I am depressed as much as incredibly anxious and that anxiety makes me feel sad. I have been to a psychitrist and he won't give me medication until 36 weeks of pregnancy, I am 25-26 weeks now. I do marriage therapy and individual therapy and ugh.... I don't Read more

I feel kind of pathetic. My husband changed shifts to second shift, which is the worst for our family, and I just feel so isolated. I have been crying for the past hour. His schedule shifts almost every month and since we are a one car household it really affects what I do with my time. I want to sign up for yoga for Read more

So... I need some perspective on my financial situation in order to make an ethical decision about whether or not to use WIC, which my family qualifies for. I don't mean to seem insensitive to others financial situations, I just have no perspective on how other young families live in metro areas outside of the Read more

So, I don't think I have posted on here about this but the last few weeks my anxiety has gone from manageable to out of control. I am 24 weeks pregnant and have already sat down with a psych. for medication post-natal and he does not recommend taking anything until the baby is born or if it is an emergency, to wait to Read more

In Groupthink, user Garebear is harassing me and other users. I asked the user nicely not to reply to my posts because he or she is overly agressive but that just started him or her to harass me.

So I kind of feel crappy about something. I shopped at H&M today and they had a buy one get one free on items of equal value or lesser if that applies. I purchased more or less doubles of each item but the initial cashier rang them up so that the cheapest item was the free one even though I had purchased 2 of the same Read more
