It depends on the door. if its a door I can't lock, then I'd rather be facing it. Doors at work don't bother me much, because they are restricted-access and only people who are supposed to be using them are able to. At a restaurant, I like a seat facing the door.

I took Hydroxyzine for allergic hives and skin itching from an environmental allergy. It did make me less anxious, but that was a side-effect of being drowsy more than anything else. Eventually that lessened as I got used to taking it, and now it has no effect on anxiety at all and doesn't cause dro...

no, its single-supplier per territory - you get the supplier that serves your region. You can pay more to get "green energy" but all that means is our utility will try to produce electricity using wind, or hydro, or solar to offset your use. The reality is the energy you are actually getti...

Electric care have their good points, but they aren't all they are made out to be. The electricity that powers them has to come form somewhere. I wonder how many people would buy them if they knew the electricity was still being produced by burning coal or fossil fuels...or even nuclear energy?

If you have short to medium length hair and want to add a bit of wave you can try a salt-water rinse or buy a "beach hair" spray for the purpose. If your hair is longer, you can blow dry it in sections over a round hairbrush. Both of those are fairly easy without needing a lot of different...

All of those symptoms are also to be expected when Starting paxil as well, with the exception of "flu-like symptoms" which of not cased by a cold or flu are psychosomatic, so no it doesn't really sound more that psychological. Starting and stopping any anti-depressant will cause side-effec...

Were the black players active participants, and if so, were they sanctioned along with the others? I can't help but notice the similarity to the rhetoric used recently by Colin Kaepernick likening the NFL draft to a slave auction, which was pretty cringe but didn't result in him getting canceled. I...

It depends on your definition of addiction. Paxil use does not lead to chemical dependency, but it can lead to a psychological one. Anti-depressants my their nature alter behavior so it makes sense that as you stop taking it you would have unpleasant side-effects from lowering or stopping the regula...

Nuclear powered or not, Carriers still have to carry jet fuel, and gasoline. So its fairly easy to see how cross contamination could occur.

Income is only a small part of judging a person's credit worthiness. You also need a good credit history. As has been said, you need a reason for a loan that is acceptable to the lender. Using it for rent? That a "red-flag" because it implies you cant afford to pay for your shelter, making...

Narcissism as a derogatory term gets way overused. Especially on the internet. So it makes sense you'd feel that way. You are probably seeing and hearing about it a lot more these days. Yes, NPD is real. And yes, there are people who have been traumatized/abused by them. There are also a lot of folk...

Be open and honest about it, especially beforehand if possible. People will respond a bit more positively when they aren't taken by surprise if you respond intensely to a situation. It might put some people off, but the ones that stick around are the ones you want to stick around.

I wouldn't use the word damaged, but most of the anti-depressants and anxiety meds I have tried have never really helped in the long-term. I always used to think it was because there was something about me that just didn't respond well to them, but I recently had a psychiatrist tell me that it was p...
