In Topic: Sister Taking Bc Pills, What About Me!?

09 July 2014 - 03:16 PM

Other than saw palmetto which I don't suggest, there is nothing in the form of a pill other than accutane/ antibiotics that would be prescribed to you for acne. BC is hormonal way of controlling it now, but won't last for ever if she wants kids, I've seen people relapse too. Some don't but not common atleast from my experience.

Become an emancipated minor so you can make your own medical decisions. Sure that will piss your mom off.... Might need her insurance to pay for it in the end too  ... Well there isn't much I can say besides off my prayers and wishes that things will turn around. I wouldn't put all my faith in accutane. It's no miracle drug. There maybe another route. I would keep on encouraging you to express your feelings realistically to your mother. I would get other family members involved too. This isn't something you just grow out of especially if it starts at an early age which suggests it's possibly more of a hormonal issue than other culprits. Granted puberty is rough, but this still warrants treatment.

I personally have had limited results with Zinc. The cheaper forms caused gi distress, and terrible nightmares.

If I was to do it again I would suggest ZMA I think it's called or zinc picolinate? Both I believe are better used and absorbed by the body. Avoid competing minerals like iron, calcium in high doses is necessary for absorption.

I know in this section of the boards there is an old thread on zinc on which kinds to take and such.

You're misunderstanding the "Nice guy" stereotype. I'm not saying you can't be nice, I'm saying "Nice guys" generally have weak behavior such as weak emotional control, seeking approval and putting woman on a pedestal. I'm not saying be an a-hole but when push comes to shove you need to be assertive and know how the dating scene works. The more attractive and confident the woman is, the less she will tolerate weak behavior and putting her on a pedestal. I'm assuming it's a girl that told you "you're cute when you're angry"? She's most likely just saying that in a friendly way because you lost your cool unless I get more back story to that situation. Anyways, this isn't a dating forum and I'm not going to go into a lot of details about this. 

You have a point in that this behavior can be seen or interpret generally as "weak emotional control" from the onlooking person. Seeking approval is somewhat what we all do as humans in many things but it represents its self heavily in dating. Its kinda hard to avoid, but in the same sense should not be used to put a person on a pedestal as you speak and then seek their approval.


Lol..i laugh as i read this because I delegate in my job a lot. I tell people what to do in a sense all the time either from a doctor order or going back to the doc and stating my recommendation and then passing it down. I am assertive when i need to be. Work a couple 12hr shifts in a row and that second nature starts to come out a lot more. I become more assertive: "do this" without a please and sometimes not a thank you in return. I try to "tame the beast" and leave work at work when outside of it. Because my attitude of "just doing" or aggressive, assertive nature is something that reminds me of an old movie quote "break glass only in the event of war" . 


To me i think it misrepresents me because outside of that area people do not that im not trying to be dick or that im not angry. People take it personal because of body language, tone of voice, mood, etc. I am more of the nice guy. 


But nowhere does that mean to me that im weak im my opinion; i've been through hell more than acne alone. I don't let those emotions flow wildly or speak of them. I do not let people in. I'm a close book with a lock'n key. I speak my mind, am blunt, judgmental, have and display colorful language, believe most people are idiots and society is helpless-i have strong beliefs as  you see. But i keep that on the down low to myself most of the time because most of it is negative and its not a way i want to live all the time.


Yes, this girl actually likes how and when im angry. Kinda goes back to how i become more "assertive" and direct. So even though i dont see myself as weak, maybe the attitude still shows it. Actions speak louder than words. I am  a strong willed person. Just need to show it i guess


I have all day. Lets talk. I can bore you with nursing knowledge in return.
