    [–] Sephora VIB Rouge shipping is now 3 days GlitterberrySoup -1 points ago in MakeupAddiction

    I completely lost my Rouge status and all my points, and when I try to create a new account (in the hopes it will recognize me and give it back lol) it shuts me out. I'm not thrilled with Sephora right now.

    [–] Does this sound like an aura/no pain migraine? GlitterberrySoup 2 points ago in migraine

    This absolutely happens to me, and it can be caused by weird visual stuff like wonky lighting or a flashing pattern on a TV set like you said, OP. It is bad enough that I am now allowed to go outside during fire drills at work because the flashing emergency lights reflecting off all the glass in our building would ruin me for the rest of the day.

    I have brought it up to my neuro before but since I have never had anything out of the ordinary on a scan he doesn't have a solid answer for me. It could be a type of absence seizure or very intense migraine aura. My migraines do not tend to follow any kind of pattern so we don't have much to go by. It's worth a call to your doc anyway just to see if they have suggestions.

    [–] Everything I hate about MLMs: this girl is from a poor family, got pregnant right out of high school and is struggling. She’s been sold the “entrepreneur/business owner” line and is sacrificing for it. Her up line is encouraging her to quit her other job! They target women who need support not scams GlitterberrySoup 19 points ago in antiMLM

    This is very true, but I never mentioned that in my situation I didn't want the kids. I just hadn't planned for them to happen so close together. They are 15 and 16 now and I'm actually glad it happened the way it did because they are very close and have many of the same friends.

    But sure, I'm not against either of those things for other people and I would probably consider them myself if I had another instance of BC failure (much less likely now for about a zillion reasons).

    This isn't usually the case, but I'm one of those people whose birth control failed and ended up pregnant with my second when my first was 4 months old. I got all manner of shade thrown at me just like what you're saying. I was on BC for my first as well but probably wasn't hypervigilant about taking it at the same time every day. After he was born I had alarms on top of alarms set to tell me when those pills needed to be taken and never missed one... /rant

    I'm sure that's not what's going on in 95% of the cases we see, especially in places like this. But had to bring it up because of all the times I've been asked if I was aware what causes babies. Certainly not a personal attack, just a visceral reaction :)

    [–] Helpful Reality Checks from the Dean of Sexless Marriages GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in DeadBedrooms

    Shh, don't tell them about Visio! Just let it be impressive. I use it all the time at work and it makes some pretty complicated flowcharts with a relatively painless process. Honestly thought I must have opened the wrong thing when this popped up.

    [–] What it was like being a rural doctor in 1948 GlitterberrySoup 11 points ago in medicine

    One of the pictures showed him with a wife and two very young sons. It said that she had trouble with his erratic schedule. For that to even be mentioned, I wonder what the real story was.

    [–] Dude, you've let yourself go GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in TrueOffMyChest

    I had to dig in my brain for it but it was there! No one in my office could believe I could drink then because they were so freaking thick... But I'm also the person who everyone gives their frosting to when we have cake because I don't eat the cake part. Just the frosting :)

    [–] Dude, you've let yourself go GlitterberrySoup 2 points ago in TrueOffMyChest

    The Chantico? That stuff was so thick and so high calorie I gained eight pounds just now from thinking about it.

    But omg it was delicious.

    [–] Concerta question GlitterberrySoup 1 points ago in ADHD

    I couldn't agree more. I was on methylphenidate for years and I thought I was just turning into a tearful mess as I aged (this was in my early to mid 30's). I switched to Vyvanse two years ago and the difference has been incredible. It's a much smoother ride for me and I don't have the shaky anxiety when it wears off. Of course I'm not saying Vyvanse is the drug for OP's daughter, everyone is different, but methylphenidate is definitely not it. I tried so many before I found the combo that worked.

    [–] Your parents and their stupid fucking beliefs can suck a fat bag of dicks. GlitterberrySoup 0 points ago in TrueOffMyChest

    A lot of people still do this. It's a gesture of respect. It's not the usual for the father to refuse, unfortunately, so I'm not sure what the next steps would be other than to talk to your girlfriend. It may ruin the surprise but if her culture is important to her she will likely appreciate it.

    You dropped this /s. Or maybe I did?

    I wasn't trying to sound smart. Literally the opposite.

    Lol how would I know, I'm American

    [–] Taylor's two month Accutane update GlitterberrySoup 34 points ago in BeautyGuruChatter

    I am a pharmacy tech. When I worked retail and someone came in to pick up Accutane, we dragged out this big old ledger that they had to sign attesting that they were not pregnant and were currently on birth control. These ledgers are monitored at a state and federal level as each Accutane patient has a unique ID number.

    Nothing that was said in any of the previous comments was inaccurate or said in a way that would incite fear. Accutane is known to cause birth defects and the manufacturer is being extremely responsible with a patient population in which that could be troublesome.

    [–] What's something you never understood or secretly doubted until it happened to you? GlitterberrySoup 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Family day is a national holiday in Canada? That sounds so wholesome!

    My birthday is in February and I still hate it lol

    [–] What's something you never understood or secretly doubted until it happened to you? GlitterberrySoup 3 points ago in AskReddit

    My neuro wanted me to look at a bunch of images like that to get an accurate representation of my auras and I only lasted a few minutes before I was like, "yeah, I'm done." Just seeing it almost brought one on.
