  1. I've been scratched and bitten so many times by cats and never had issues other than the one time when it was a really deep bite when I was about 16. I have a hand full of scars from that experience. My mum was not interested and didn't take me to the Dr (she was pretty neglectful when it came to health stuff) and was bleeding badly and got very infected. These days I don't bother doing anything much with small superficial scratches/nips other than clean them fastidiously but a proper deep bite I'd get checked out asap.
  2. For me, the difference between the teasing and bullying I received was that the teasing was more casual, odd comments on the fly that maybe someone less anxious, awkward and shy wouldn't have taken on board so much and the teaser generally wasn't spending their life planning how to hurt me. The bullying was highly targeted, led to me being isolated from my few friends, and it felt like the bully got huge joy from it. You feel like prey. It was just a whole nother level of nastiness. I can see the line between kids just being idiots and trying to wind each other up and actual bullying but
  3. Not very often. I had one that was full of writing that wasn't mentioned and one that had a ripped page. Mostly they are better than I'm expecting.
  4. Maybe it would work for mild teasing but I can't see how many socially awkward kids could pull off any of this. I know I wouldn't have managed it. I wouldn't have even coped with taking part in the group session to learn it. I'd still be a target. I think it blames the victims of bullying a bit too much too. I think that kids with bully tendencies will always find a target. As someone who was heavily bullied it was clear even as a kid that my bullies had serious issues. I found out a lot more about the awful home lives of my bullies after I left school. This approach seems at best to only dea
  5. My 14 yr old has loved warrior cats for a few years. I'll show her this. She does a lot of drawing and animation that is warrior cats themed.
  6. I've been listening to a podcast called This Podcast will Kill You and it's made me very grateful to have vaccinated kids and for that option to be available so widely. Diptheria sticks in my head as being particularly nasty.
  7. I don't really have a nightstand but I have a small dresser next my bed and the small top drawer closest to me kind of serves that purpose. It usually contains a couple of pairs of headphones, tissues, odd bits of medication, charger cables, cat treats, moisturiser, lip balm, pens and scissors and often tape and it tends to attract craft related bits and bobs and things like the stem clips for my orchids. My phone lives in there at night too.
  8. I always struggle, particularly because of anemia and how much it completely steals my energy and ability to think (amongst more serious symptoms from time to time). I think the reality is that women are really good at covering up period related stuff and just getting on with life until they get to the point that it's too much to cope with and even then people only share it with their immediate family/friends if they have to. So your husband is clueless about what most women he interacts with experience every month and how much they are putting up with quietly. It's kind of weird that he think
  9. We never really go to the doctor when it's clear we've just picked up the bug that's going around. It's not like they can do a lot to change the progress of your recovery. If it's clearly become a sinus/chest or similar infection then I would go but else I just stay at home and away from other people and manage it the best I can. 3 or 4 days isn't really very long to be sick and recover if it's a nasty bug. I always take absolutely ages to get over those kind of viruses when my family gets them mildly and gets through them in about 3 days so I'd totally be happy to go about 2-3 weeks before d
  10. Gap do tall tees that are nice and long. I'm just shy of 5ft 8 with a proportionally long body and they're a good fit on me. I get my t shirts and all other tops from tall ranges and they usually work without being so ridiculously long they've become tunics.
  11. If you are a complete newbie to building a site try something like squarespace. I love WordPress but I think it's too easy for people that are new to it to get bogged down in the technical side of it and also just how much you can do. I also suggest you plan on paper before you start building. Figure out what pages your site needs to include and think about the information that people visiting your site need and why they would be visiting your site. Write the text you want on each page and edit it down as much as possible. Gather photos too. I've noticed it's really normal for people to
  12. We use them in most rooms but in my room we have pull-out baskets in the bottom half of our open wardrobes which I use for smaller clothing items. I love that system. I do also have a dresser but it's just full of odds and ends, mostly craft junk and I hate it so it'll probably be going soon. Everyone else has dressers but I do think they are a poor use of space and I'd prefer the other rooms to have a similar set up to me but I haven't got around to making that happen yet.
  13. I usually go as early as they open on what ever day I choose. It tends to be less stressful and I avoid Christmas Eve.
  14. Mostly stream tv/movies or use apps, I also read documents. I used to have a 2013 fire hdx which was amazing but I recently had to replace it and chose the current fire hd and I'm really disappointed in it.
  15. I really like building websites but I still get fed up at times. I think it helps if you plan everything on paper and write and organise everything you want to include first so you don't get bogged down with staring at a screen. That makes a massive difference. I definitely find making sites for creatives more challenging whether it's my own photography or my friend's poetry or something.
