    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. leiahoff 107 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Right?! 20sF MD here. If I had a dollar for every time something like this happened, or someone asked to see my license because I'm not an older male and they don't believe I'm a physician, I wouldn't feel so underpaid for my time anymore. If someone tells me one more time I should "shop at an old lady store" to look older or "dress less attractively" to help prevent this.... The struggle is real, keep up the great work!!

    [–] Please help me figure out what to feed my diabetic mother-in-law who's a super picky eater leiahoff 5 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago) in HealthyFood

    The trick is protein to feel full and lots of vegetables plus complex carbohydrates.

    Beans/legumes/nuts (lentils, chickpeas) aren't on that list so would be a good source of protein. I'm thinking something like a chili maybe? Can also roast chickpeas to make them crispy to put in a salad.

    Also on that same note low sugar (usually in the health foods/organic section) nut butters to put with fruit to up the protein.

    Eggs as well The fat levels isn't as bad as it's made out to be and almost exclusively in the yolk. Could do a 3 egg omelette with only one yolk if she needs a little more flavour. Or hard boil them for a salad and take out the yolk.

    Greek yogurt (can be low fat but sometimes will up the sugar) into smoothies with veg/low sugar fruit is another good idea. You could even sneak in protein powder.

    Hope that helps a little but I always find working with a dietitian can be very helpful in these instances!

    Edit: didn't really address salt but general rule of thumb is that anything from a can or package has a ton of salt so scratch cooking and investment in a no-salt spice blend is always best

    [–] Your debit card pays for things with past hours of your life, and your credit card pays with future hours of your life. leiahoff 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Yeah, you try paying 30k tuition per year and living expenses on your 0$ income from working 50 hrs/wk x 4 years and studying on top of that. Let's not forget flying all over the country on your own dime to interview for residency positions in a system that demands you apply to basically anywhere for fear of ending up without a residency spot (without which you can't work btw). Then finally getting paid 40-60k/yr to work 70h/wk for the next 5 years and we'll see how "responsible" you are. Smh.

    [–] A small gesture the cashier did when buying Plan B made a huge difference leiahoff 8336 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I had a similar instance with a cashier buying a pregnancy test. She said "I hope you get the outcome you're hoping for" which is just a nice supportive thing to say in a terrifying situation (either way).

    [–] What is Kaycee's day job? leiahoff 4 points ago in BigBrother

    Isn't it brutal the difference between what a man makes playing professional football vs what a professional woman PAYS.

    [–] Hot take.. Angela isn't evil... leiahoff 17 points ago in BigBrother

    But actually though when she was giggling about Tyler being cute was probably the only time I suspect we've seen her be real.

    [–] I [26F] met up last night with [28M] after 7 months of talking online.. now feeling all sorts of emotions. leiahoff 1 points ago in relationships

    That's a totally different thing though. If she's only comfortable being physical with someone with whom she is in a relationship thats fine. Don't sleep with him. The problem I have with the statement is the implication that by not sleeping with him she is somehow making herself more valuable and worthy of a relationship/his love and that withholding her body to manipulate him into a relationship is the best course of action to avoid being hurt. Not sleeping with someone who is just chasing you for sex doesn't make them more likely to change their mind and suddenly want a relationship with you. The bigger problem here as many other comments have eloquently outlined is a difference of expectations for what would happen when they finally met up and requires adult discussion to resolve differences and (sometimes) come to a resolution not underhanded mind games and manipulation. If after such a discussion their barriers are incompatible then they move on.

    Please please please don't use your sexuality/body as some sort of prize to be won if he behaves well/earns it. If youre comfortable - have sex. If not - don't. The important thing is that it is up to you to decide what you do with your body. If he's only interested in you because of "the chase" then he's not interested. This is one of the cringier parts of our dating culture and I hate it being propagated.

    [–] Holy moly, it actually works!! leiahoff 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I'm so so happy for you! Another non-kegel helpful tool you can use is a pessary - weird idea, works great. Basically a ring or a cube inserted in the vagina to hold things in place. You can use it for all those extra strain activities (colds, trampolines, exercise).

    [–] My[M27] GF[F25] of 6 years has been going out of town one week out of every month so far this year. leiahoff 3 points ago in relationships

    Her behaviour is shady for sure and needs to be addressed but as an MD any young woman who comes into urgent care with belly pain gets a pregnancy test no matter what they tell me. People lie, ectopic pregnancies can be serious if not identified. Testing is the safest thing to do. That alone doesn't mean anything at all.

    [–] My (33/f) fiancé (30/m) of 4 1/2 years has a new friend (late 20s/F) that is making me uncomfortable. I KNOW he is lying about something but have no evidence and I’m worried that cheating has happened or may happen soon. Red flags or am I just jealous? leiahoff 10 points ago in relationships

    This is absolutely the best comment here. You set boundaries, he broke them. You're respecting yourself by standing up to him but also being humble by giving him a chance to make a choice to help repair your relationship. I say help because obviously at the core of this there is something up that you will both need to work on.

    There are so many negative connotations that go with the word ultimatum that absolutely do not apply here.

    [–] Okay tipping is getting out of hand... leiahoff 2 points ago in vancouver

    There's an Earls where I live that does this! No idea how its working though.

    [–] Okay tipping is getting out of hand... leiahoff 11 points ago in vancouver

    What's interesting is that most of my friends who work in the restaurant industry say they would never work at some of the places that pay a reasonable wage and don't have tips because it works out to being less (eg. $CAD18/hr which seems reasonable) and in the same sentence will complain that their pay relies on tips to be worthwhile. Servers work hard and take a lot of shit but I've seen jobs advertised in fields requiring education and experience posted less than that - how did we get to where its assumed you can make that kind of money without training?

    Am I the only one who thinks her breasts look totally lopsided in this photo?!

    Edit: taking all of the normal things that happen with gravity and stretching into account the volume of one breast looks significantly greater than the other.

    [–] DAE buy kids sneakers because they’re cheaper than the adult version? leiahoff 1 points ago in femalefashionadvice

    I have found quality/longevity to be slightly less on some occasions. The other thing is for things like soccer cleats or running shoes they just don't fit exactly right and end up giving blisters.
