[ - ] Just watched Elizabeth Warren on Colbert. She is so much smarter and more impressive and more likable than Hillary ever was. How DNC thought Hillary was a good candidate is mind blowing to me. Really wish it would have been Bernie and Elizabeth Warren in 2016, but hoping they will win in 2020. To those who don't like Elizabeth Warren, what are your reasons? What has she done wrong and what makes her not a good candidate in your opinion? 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

For what that's worth, I spent 50 years telling people I was French and German because that's what I was told. I did DNA and found out I'm only 8% French and German. Are you going to call me Marie Antoinette or Eva Braun? Sometimes you only know stuff because people in your family told you, and they don't always know what they're talking about. She said she had a native american ancestor, because that's what she was told. Stop beating this dead horse. It's going nowhere. [ Reply | More ]

I love her (MA mom here) but I just don't see her appealing to the flyovers and the south. She's SO intelligent, logical, etc. but she always sounds like she is going to burst into tears, like an old schoolmarm desperation to her voice...I think that unfortunately Drumpf has poisoned the well for her and the way she comes across will not click with middle America. She's way East Coast Ivy Elitist, and her record won't matter to them...her vehement anti-gun/pro-choice will matter to them, negatively. [ Reply | More ]

if you are coming in from a private school, or out of the district/cit/state your chances are better. There are always open seats here and there.

If it was a lump but the mammo and ultrasounds come back clear, then it means they know what it is, right? what did they say? [ Reply | More ]

They told me they saw cysts. She has report by now. I'm guessing if what they report does not match what she felt, there is a disconnect. But we've been playing phone tag. [ Reply | More ]

Doesn't sound like anything is needed unless it is bothering you. Then, you can have it drained. Otherwise, I would think they would just want you to get screened again in 6 mo. [ Reply | More ]

This happened to me -- mammo/us fine but my dr. wanted 100% confidence, they did a biopsy (left the tiny "seed") and that was it. It changed shape about a year later so she did a lumpectomy-- everything fine and normal but they tend to be VERY careful these days. [ Reply | More ]

Radiologist here. First you would get a referral to a breast surgeon. The breast surgeon examines you and if she agrees that there is a lump, she would do a core needle biopsy under palpation. There is no clip left in this situation (clips are only left during imaging-guided biopsies, which you would not have since your mammo/ultrasound are negative.) Hope that helps. [ Reply | More ]

np. Question for you. I had a stereotactic biopsy for calcifications. Came back negative. It took forever to heal and I now get pain sometimes before my period and where they put the seed if I have inadvertently touched it. Is there anything that can be done, or is this just scar tissue in the wrong place and a seed in a bad location? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] WWYD? DH and I casually started discussing baby names when we found out the sex and I mentioned a name that was a favorite of mine when we were pregnant with our first (7 years ago). DH wasn't sure he liked it. We discussed a few other names here and there but as time passes I become more and more set on that name. Should I keep pretending or be upfront and say that's the name I want? It was so easy with my first where DH liked my favorite name and we finalized as soon as we found out the sex.

I posted about it a few weeks ago and got mostly positive results on here but didn't expect to get 100% approval. Name i like is Juliette Rosalie. Both family names or derivations of family names. Rosalie was my dad's mothers name (she died from childbirth complications with his brother) but I don't want to use as a first name and I prefer to use her real name to a derivation like Rose because I feel like it's a rare and beautiful name. Juliette is a name I have always loved and is a derivation from my grandmas brothers name Julius. DH isn't sure he likes Julie as a NN but I am open to other NNs [ Reply | More ]

Thank you for these ideas. DS2 doesn't have a name that lends itself to nicknames so I call him by his initial or pet nicknames that are not based on his name. I am fine with doing the same for this baby too. DS1 had suggested Ellie as a name and while its not a real match I could consider that as a NN too. I am really open on nicknames... [ Reply | More ]

India, South America, all of the African countries, even Indonesia charge less in taxes than the United States. But these people don't want to live in those shitholes. They want to live in a country where they know that their food is safe and that their office building isn't going to collapse around them or light on fire, where they can have a house that doesn't require a fortified wall all around it, and where their kids can go to good schools that have globally low levels of corruption and they can get helped at the hospital without having to walk in with a bag of cash.
