    [–] I feel violated and discriminated by my doctor. Am I overreacting? Shojo_Tombo 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 hours ago) in Medicalabusesurvivors

    I'm so sorry your doctor decided to be an asshole rather than a professional. Her behavior is not ok! You may want to file a complaint with her practice or the medical board for your location. Definitely get to a different doc asap. It sounds more like you may have PCOS, which is a fairly common and treatable endocrine disorder. Fibroids are another thing that can cause the symptoms you described. You may need some blood tests to check your hormones, sugar, and cholesterol. They should also check your blood pressure, and may need to do an abdominal ultrasound to look at your uterus and ovaries for cysts and/or growths.

    I also want you to know that the hymen has nothing to do with virginity. There is also no reliable test to determine virginity. Hymens come in a multitude of shapes and sizes. It's just a bit of vestigial tissue, that sometimes tears during sex. Some women tear once, some tear every time, some never bleed at all. Everyone is different, and that's ok! :)

    You have not been deflowered by Dr Douchecanoe. Your worth is not determined by what or how many things have entered your body. I highly recommend that you read The Wonder Down Under:, a book written by two female doctors that is basically the owner's manual for anyone who has a vagina and wants to know about their body.

    edit: I forgot to tell you, her less than gentle manner with your lady bits may have caused some cramping that flushed some leftover period blood out of your uterus. (Hence the dark color.) If you had tissue tearing, the blood would be bright red.

    [–] I'll be changing my primary care doctor Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in TalesFromTheCustomer

    I see this all the time in inpatients. A diabetic will get several albbuterol breathing treatments and their sugar absolutely skyrockets. Steroids are no joke.

    [–] My ex told me why he cheated Shojo_Tombo 27 points ago * (lasted edited 7 hours ago) in TwoXChromosomes

    Nah, OP was able to walk away without strings. I married my mistake. Divorce is a long, expensive, stressful way to break up. Thank god we didn't have kids!

    edit: Let me clarify. I'm only saying that yes they did dodge a bullet. I have no doubt their breakup was devastatingly painful and my heart goes out to them.

    [–] Judge Halts Deportation of 11-Year-Old Girl Who Was Ordered to Leave Without Her Family Shojo_Tombo 83 points ago * (lasted edited 7 hours ago) in news

    Why are they sending children to court without the family members they arrived with? This is a redundant and stupid way to do things and our government knows it. The system has been purposely set up to slow down the process and screw over immigrants.

    This needs to stop.

    [–] Baltimore sees biggest population loss in single year since 2001, census estimates show Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in baltimore

    This only lists where they say the money is going. I want a report that says exactly who the checks are being written to and for what. For example, the city is spending almost 90 million on "waste water debt services." What does that even mean, and why is it so expensive? Why are they spending so much on that and a relatively tiny amount on maintenance?

    [–] Baltimore sees biggest population loss in single year since 2001, census estimates show Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in baltimore

    This is exactly what my guy and I did. We areboth professionals with decent income, and we bought a fixer-upper on the edge of West Baltimore. We started fixing up the house, then people bought across the street and started fixing it up, which attracted flippers who reno'd another house and sold it for 80 grand more than I bought mine for.

    Now that our block is improving, a developer bought an empty lot and is putting in several more houses that should sell pretty fast, since homes around us all seem to be moving fairly quickly. (Even the rowhomes!)

    A lot of people around the neighborhood have very young kids, so I'm hoping we will start having an impact on the schools (which are shit) in the next five-ish years.

    I would love to see some property tax and utilities abatement. There is no reason for us to be paying so much and getting so little back. There definitely needs to be a large-scale investigation into where our tax dollars go, and appropriate actions taken to get our city government back on track.

    My point is, people are starting to try to help. Hopefully the city recognizes this and helps us keep the ball rolling.

    We pay a huge amount of taxes and our water/sewer bills are ridiculous. We should have plenty of money to fund infrastructure and schools, and yet parts of the city are left to crumble and schools are not maintained. Where the hell is all of our money going? Figure that out, and you will find the biggest problem to solve. Remove graft from the equation and it will be a million times easier to solve the rest of the problems.

    [–] My girlfriend’s CB cousin loses her shit when we don’t pay for her vacation. Shojo_Tombo 19 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    It's not your fault or your problem that she's in a bad financial state. You are a good person, and she's taking advantage of that. Hopefully you will remember this tantrum the next time she comes begging and tell her to pound sand.

    She's not going to die without your money. Welfare is there to help her. Let her learn the hard way not to bite the hand that feeds you.

    [–] Tailor keeps making up excuses for dress. Wedding is in two days.. Shojo_Tombo 25 points ago in TalesFromTheCustomer

    Not everyone is good at dealing with conflict resolution. If you can't be helpful, row your douche canoe elsewhere.

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 11 points ago in AskReddit

    That's because the models don't actually have huge boobs. They are wearing pushups with chicken cutlets and duct tape to make them look bigger than they really are.

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 3 points ago in AskReddit

    This would be amazing, but VS doesn't have this. There are a couple other online bra makers that do have this, though.

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Tell her to Check out Lane Bryant. They can be a bit pricey, but they have awesome bra sales. Honestly, it's worth the price to have a bra that fits and functions.

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 4 points ago in AskReddit

    It also doesn't help that they pretty much ignore women who actually need a functional bra. I am a 38-40DD and have never found a VS bra I didn't spill out of, or the band and straps were way too small. Meanwhile, at Lane Bryant or Torrid I'm pretty much the smallest size they carry in store so I end up having to shop online for bras, which sucks even more.

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Honestly, it's a really bad idea to post any pics or videos of kids in their underwear on the internet. Your accounts are easier to hack than you think, and sickos don't need kids to act suggestively to get excited.

    I also want you to know that pictures and videos have info called metadata attached to them. This data usually includes the date, time and location the pic/vid was taken. This is automatically attached unless you go into your camera settings and turn it off. It is very easy to see metadata if you know where to look, which means someone with nefarious intent could use those posts to locate the kids.

    That's why YouTube removed them.

    edit: a word

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in AskReddit

    And they aren't creamy anymore either. The chocolate tastes like a Hershey bar (meh) and the cream isn't even cream. Disgusting.

    [–] What company has lost their way? Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in AskReddit

    And their flavored coffee tastes like air fresheners.

    [–] When night shift doesn't troubleshoot instrument issues and leaves them for day shift Shojo_Tombo 84 points ago in medlabprofessionals

    Waaah. Night shift has less people, less resources, and the morning run. I don't feel sorry for lazy dayshifters missing one of their two or three breaks when we may not even get one.

    [–] Mood/Day Ruined because of a total POS Shojo_Tombo 3 points ago in TalesFromTheCustomer

    If it's a chain store, also complain to their corporate office. This ass needs to go.

    [–] Pinterest inspired child abuse Shojo_Tombo 0 points ago in insaneparents

    I only had one broken on me. Then they switched to a steel spoon. Ow.
