1000 kids get 99, of which about 400 live in D2. both schools have 35 non sibling spots avail. its a lottery as to what you get, so similar parents and kids. A goes through 8th grade which is the only obvious benenfit. LL has more of a zoned feel with about half kids living in walking distance. scores are very similar [ Reply | More ]

wife of ER doc. Anything that diverts energy and resources from your primary immune response is going to have an impact on how well or poorly you respond to some random virus or bacteria. On the flip side there are intense viruses and bacteria that can incite what they call a "cytokine storm" meaning that the younger and healthier you are the more overwhelming your strong immune system is - and that actually is what kills you.

It's called ribbing, joking, we don't think we are having serious discussions. For most of us this is a distraction. Nothing more. Although I will offer my best advice when I suspect a serious poster is in need of it. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I was about to give to (MSF) Doctors without Borders, but now it has come to light that an american doctor working on their behalf returned home and did not self quarentine. He then went to a bowling alley in brooklyn and took uber around the city even though he didn't feel well. Shame on you doc and MSF. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

^^Red flags include: His mother made it clear that she hated me, and DH took her side on everything. DH made lots of critical comments about my weight (He was 6'0" 200 lbs, now 300 lbs, and I was/am 5'5" 115 lbs). DH often seemed jealous of other men's wives/girlfriends. If one of his friend's wives was a SAHM, all of the sudden he decided I should be a SAHM. Then if another friend's wife had a great job, all of the sudden he'd decide I should keep working. He was very controlling and seemed to have no internal values, he was/is very easily influenced by his jealousy of others. Lastly, DH did not buy me an engagement ring. [ Reply | More ]

I'm the other poster who regrets marrying my husband. I should have seen things also, small lies that I let go, jealousy (eg didn't like me speaking to other men). Controlling, I didn't notice this one, but things like showing up without any notice (eg checking on me), driving me places (so he'd know where I was going). Also married young. 26. [ Reply | More ]

12 years and very happy. He knew the first time we met. For me it was slower. he grew on me. I knew when I went to his family for passover about 3 months in (8 months after we met). Then I knew with certainty when he met my grandfather. there was something in the way they interacted that just made it clear. My grandfather was very special to me. We moved in together 1 month later. [ Reply | More ]

I developed this knowledge over time (about 5 years - we met in our early 20s). He let me be myself, have my own friends, do my own thing; wasn't jealous or clingy (I was pretty hands-off with him as well). We had (and still have) fun together and have the same sense of humor. No red flags. We've been married 8 years and together for 13, and are very happy together. [ Reply | More ]
