 Forum: Health, Fitness, and Sports   Topic: How can I eat meat and be healthy?

Just go for good quality, ethical sources, and eat small quantities. Avoid the processed stuff, like hot dog sausages, those are toxic. This is reasonable advice. Also, if you're going to eat red meat, grass-fed is a good way to go. I have a vegetarian friend who has tried to push me into giving up...

I think a lot of people in your shoes would feel some hurt and resentment, especially if they had a troubled relationship with their own mother, but would push it down and not acknowledge it, even to themselves. It's not necessarily a bad thing you're being honest with yourself about how you're feel...

Does anyone remember that episode of "Seinfeld," where Jerry and Elaine try to set George up on a blind date with Elaine's friend who has great eyebrows? Jerry and George were sort of like, "Eyebrows? Who notices eyebrows?"

This. It sounds like there's a lot of potential for you to get hurt here and it's not a level playing field when this guy is getting to "have his cake and eat it too" and you just have him.

OP, you're not at all alone in experiencing feelings of being disconnected from God or having doubts. It's natural and many, if not most, 'religious people' go through this, too. I wonder if it might be helpful for you to look up research that psychologists and other researchers in human development...

Oh, Techstep, where has the time gone? I come back and see you asking a question like this. You're making me feel old. But, to answer your question, I don't really know? I just sort of have a collection of stereotypical images in my head of what they usually look like and a sense it's undergirded an...

If so, please share.

Going through a rough time and could use some cheering up. Guessing the odds are that I'm not the only one.

Thank-you for your consideration, good people of Wrongplanet. :)

I wonder if we should start a hypermobility support thread somewhere. I am new to this and just learning, but it sounds like it's more prevalent in people with ASD. Maybe we're not the only ones. Anyhow, on the braces thing, I tried a pair of cheap compression sleeve style ones from Target today, bu...

Everyone has a right to accommodations in the workplace, whether that person is diagnosed with a specific "label" or not. If light is bothering you, your GP or even your optometrist can write a recommendation for alternative lighting. The fact you work with autistic clients is even more p...

Ordinarily I like any type of music with well written lyrics that makes you feel, but this stuff just has too many bad associations for me. My mother, who was abusive and has untreated mental illness, was obsessed with it, especially The Cure. She'd use it as an escape and take off to follow bands o...

Have any of the bendy, hypermobile folks on this thread had any success using braces? I ask in case it might help the OP and also for myself. I have been having a bad flare that seems to be going on forever and was considering trying ones for my knees. I don't want to totally hijack this thread, so ...

Yeah, there is definitely something to be said for keeping work and home separate, especially when working long hours. For my current situation, the pros of working from home outweigh the cons, but at times I really envy people who can leave work at work and just go home. Would something like Transi...

I love that. :lol:

I usually put whoever I'm dating at the time or, if single, one of my few non-estranged family members, then hope no emergency actually occurs, since I know they might not be entirely reliable.

I don't know that I really have a type and find a pretty wide range of physical traits attractive, so maybe that's weird, but there are also so many non-visual things that can make someone very attractive, too. Their voice, mannerisms, scent, etc. The smell of a guy who's all sweaty from just workin...

I have plenty of red flags and it's great to be aware of them, I guess, but my issue is managing to not overlook them and having the courage to leave if they show themselves after I've formed an emotional attachment to someone. My last relationship that ended recently left me wanting to work on that...
