    I bought a barely broke Connemara mare that was too small for me. I sold her because of it and regret it 2 years later :(

    I bought a mare that was pretty much perfect on paper (although still a...

    OMFG I agree! I am a carb-o-maniac and 5'6", 125lbs, and don't struggle with my weight. I lost 25 pounds 3 years ago by cutting down on the amount of alcohol (calories) I was consuming. I eat real...

    As gorgeous as the weather is, it's pretty scary here in CA. All our reservoirs are lower than I have ever seen. I drive past one every morning, and I have never seen it look like it does (and I have...

    You mean like Wall Street bankers? Politicians? Executives that hide billions of dollars offshore, and practice widespread tax evasion? Companies that offshore jobs so they can take advantage of...

    Well my mare was called "sound" by a dozen vets over a period of 3 years. I also had plenty of trainers think she was "fine". I could clearly see she was "weak" on her right hind.

    She was most...

    My uncles friend used to try to fondle us girls in the swimming pool when we were around 10-12 years old. In the summers we would spend time at their ranch riding horses and swimming and he'd want to...

    No, studies say they work about as well as placebo. And the person is taking one and simply "feels better", when they "don't work like that". Clearly it's in her mind.

    It's more likely the placebo effect. Anti-depressants have been found to be about as effective as a placebo anyway. Just the act of taking something you expect to help you is what helps. You might...

    My thoughts exactly. We are middle class, both working, no kids. I pulled myself up by my bootstraps, but realize not everyone can do the same. Objectively my life is better now than it has ever...

    Ditto this. Being another Bay Area resident, the circus around it all is a nightmare. Let the kid's body go already, for everyone involved.

    Yes, none of the things I have said contradict each other. You can be caring and compassionate, talk to the person, and still leave. Like I have said over and over again, maybe he'll lie, maybe he...

    Common, let's not bring reality or any sort of discussion into this. He's simply a disgusting douch-bag that she should escape in the dead of the night. And he's probably given her AIDS on top of it.

    For me, it's just concentrating on now. I realize I've always done this, as well as meditated, but lately I have tried to get more mindful about it. I have been totally lost, homeless, suicidal at...

    Funny enough, I am a white woman and have been on the opposite side of your problem several times (with latino and asian men). It is hard, feeling like or knowing that the family of your partner will...

    Yes. When I was in college I saw a therapist from a Phd program at a local private college. They are students in clinical psychology doing internships right before being licensed. Might be a good...

    My feelings exactly. I don't hate the rich, but I am saddened by a world and a society that glorifies the hoarding of wealth, the living of extravagant lifestyles, and blames the victims of the...

    Yeah. People can just go on telling themselves they look great...but most don't. It looks weird. I know a number of people that have just had a couple shots here and there,they all start looking...

    I think it's really fascinating how 95% of the people who do botox don't realize how weird they look to other people.

    I guess if it makes you feel better when you look in the mirror then knock...

    I don't think she OWES him anything, and he might just be a total d-bag. I think the OP owes it to herself to work through this in a healthy and compassionate way for both of them. I think we tend to...

    Listening to what someone (you love) has to say doesn't mean you have to put up with it.
