It didn't change. They probably are late on the package arrival due to delays like late departure of planes. After it's been delivered and invoiced you can call for a refund or bill dispute. You don't have to pay for a service you did not get, but their revenue dept won't do anything util they can work with an invoice which is 3-7 days after delivery. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am a former party girl. I'm probably an alcoholic but in recent years I have scaled back the drinking and only drink under certain circumstances, but basically don't drink or go to bars anymore. Just visiting my hometown and I'm sort of shocked by the number of people I grew up with who are alcoholic wrecks. We're talking arrests, hospitalizations and even death. I'm 50. Has anyone else had their peers hit so hard with alcoholism? I grew up in a wealthy community with plenty of opportunity. I'm just surprised so many have done so badly. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I totally get it. I'm trying to scale back now and if there's a social event on the horizon, I tell myself "I can't start scaling back that week!". I think the idea is to get through that first hour where you really want a drink. Arrive late, or have a preset excuse (taking medication, on a new diet, physical tomorrow morning, early flight/meeting). Good luck. [ Reply | More ]

OP: In this case I think that there was a well established drinking culture of partying and drinking from a young age. It does seem to hit those who have had some family strife (divorce/economic) problems but there it's hard to say what caused what.

Good you scaled back! Yes I think there are certain areas (many areas) where drinking is ingrained and it's hard to distance yourself from it, and some people go down that road and can't come back.

Derm is good but if she doesn't do basic skin hygiene, it's a waste. Tell her to not touch her face or pick at it. No resting her chin in her hands. Wash her hair frequently enough that it's not adding more oil to her face. Change her pillowcase often. Mild cleanser and prescription acne medicine where needed. No scrubbing or harsh face washes. If it gets really bad, some girls benefit from birth control. Good luck. [ Reply | More ]

THIS is why it's better to ignore problems and never share them, like I do. It's what adults do." His strategy for tackling an issue is to sweep it under the rug and ignore it completely so it doesn't cause a fight (or ever get resolved). I am much more direct and prefer to discuss problems as they come up. However, because of his stance, my efforts to discuss a problem are often met with extreme resistance and anger. Do you know anyone like my boyfriend? Is there any hope for us? 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes, my sister's husband is like your boyfriend. Though he deals with it more with silence rather than saying 'we just shouldn't talk about it.' It's a complete pain in the ass for her. She spends countless hours trying to figure out benign ways to approach him about things and writing drafts of letters, etc. because they can't just have a 5 minute conversation and resolve things. My advice would be to see a therapist and if that doesn't work, bolt. [ Reply | More ]

I would move on. Disagreement is a part of relationships and to have a potential life partner who refuses to communicate AND make you feel badly about it? Not for me. And, yes, I know someone like your BF, I married and then divorced a guy exactly like him. The issues in life get bigger and more complex -- money, children, retirement, careers, buying a home -- seriously, if you can't discuss whatever you need to discuss now do you really want to spend your life with this person? If so, get a prenup so that you don't lose anything. I find UB women willing to put up with shit so they can claim they are married and blissfully happy. I'd rather be on my own. My guess? If you're here asking us, you already know the answer. [ Reply | More ]

Mine said drink water, including a glass an hour before so you can give a normal urine sample. A urine sample if you aren't hydrated is going to be funky. [ Reply | More ]

https://www.bankrate.com/finance/insurance/ace-life-insurance-medical-exam-1.aspx#slide=6: Fast during the 12 hours before your physical. Drink water as needed, but not to excess. Limit extreme exercise (anything that might leave you dripping in sweat), because that can marginally mess with cholesterol levels in the blood and elevate protein levels in the urine. “When people do have protein in their urine, the insurer will always recheck the urine,” she says. Get a good night’s sleep. “Eight hours if you can, especially if you are borderline for blood pressure,” Kamhi says. “Avoid stress.” [ Reply | More ]

I'd assume laziness but I'd also be bothered. I don't want his ex girlfriend checking out what shows he watches and vice versa. It's just a little too personal a connection (which I know sounds dumb, but my ex boyfriend shouldn't know that I'm halfway through episode 6 of The Queen, it's weird.) [ Reply | More ]

How do you know its her account? If he is keenly aware of this and mentioned it to you, he probably gets a secret thrill from it (maybe the cheapness or :sticking it to her"). Otherwise, he probably just doesn't want to deal with changing accounts, his profile,, paying, etc, [ Reply | More ]

I made a big switch when I was 54 (about a year ago). Similar work but it was tough coming in as the new person without institutional knowledge. Love it though despite the adjustment. For me, it had less to do with age than just adjusting to a new environment after I had been in another for so long. [ Reply | More ]

give it time and keep telling yourself to be "open" you don't want to get labeled the "old person set in their ways" - two weeks is not enough to know whether it is you or them [ Reply | More ]
