What to do if I am about to go for my daily 2 mile walk, will I burn off the sausage I just ate and will it mess up my diet?

What to do if I am about to go for my daily 2 mile walk, will I burn off the sausage I just ate and will it mess up my diet?

Possibly: This will depend on the amount of calories in the sausage, and also on how vigorously you are doing your walk, as to whether the walk will successfully burn off all the calories. One sausage shouldn't mess up a diet, but that's going to be entirely up to you and your determination to get back on track. Good luck! ...Read more

Odd question: Hello, if the sense of this lies in an earlier email, I'd need to see it to make sense of this question. Without that , anyone who can make any sense of this question, has super human intelligence. Ma'am, if you want a sensible response from us, you must first present us with a sensible question. This question as presented just makes no sense at all. Perhaps you can re-craft it and we'll try again ...Read more

What to do if I have a dilemma. I love to smoke rocks on the weekends, but i need to stop. How?

This is your predicament. ...Read more

Just wanting to stop stressing so much and calm down I have already seen a psychologist and it didn't work just wanting to know what can help me now?

Techniques & Skills: Surprisingly, sometimes the more we want something distressing to stop, the more distressed we feel. This is true of physical pain - the more we say "I can't take this" the more it tends to hurt. Try psychologist skilled in helping people manage anxiety & esp one who can help you learn skills & uses techniques like Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYht-guymF4 ...Read more

Realize many types: Feelings are not always mutual. As we form relationships beyond our family, we discover many types of people and relationships. Unlike parents and siblings, it is harder to figure out who they are and what they want from us. Only way to find out is by observing their action. One friend may not want to chat with you. Another friend may be opposite, and get hurt by your rejection. We take turns. ...Read more

Bring her to completion with your mouth and hands. Put a bit of an anesthetic on your glans. Have her squeeze you if it's about to happen. Talk with her about the possibility, and with your doctor. ...Read more
