Have you called your doctor. I don't want to scare you, but abdominal pain so bad you had to miss work is not normal (lower back aches and the occasional shooting pain through the vajayjay are very normal.) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Look, docs. I know you're still around. Weigh in on this analogy. You bring your car to the mechanic because it's making this wacky noise that it's never made before. The mechanic says "oh, it's cool, its because you put the wrong kind of gas in it. It will go away." Then three days later the engine seizes while you're on the highway because actually that noise was the pistons grinding in the cylinder because you had an oil leak that the mechanic didn't look for, and your car lurches to a stop, veers out of control and flips, killing your kid. Would you be comfortable with the mechanic's response being "look, I'm not perfect! Most times that noise is caused by gas. I don't know what you would have wanted me to do." 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] On "learning to get drunk before you go to college" - no, drunk in itself is not usually safe at all. But there is something to be said for learning in a more safe environment about how YOU and YOUR body react to alcohol. Everyone is different. When as a teen you have gone through the point where you have had too much, you have learned what kinds of alcohol agree with you and what will make you sick, whether you are angry, happy, depressed, confused, obnoxious, silly or sleepy when you drink - these are all important things to know about yourself as a teen BEFORE you get to college where they throw the booze down your throat and there are no adults other to be found other than campus police, who only respond when called. The kids who have no history with alcohol at all are at a huge disadvantage when the reality of college social life hits. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My son was already telling me about an "initiation" for freshmen that involved timed consumption of a certain amount and type of alcohol. I'm not thrilled that he partied as much as he did in high school, but I was actually a little proud at that moment when he told me he knew immediately it was not a game you wanted to win, because if you were the winner it meant you were going to be immediately out for the rest of the night and feeling like crap for 2 days. What a prize. You don't even get to enjoy the rest of the night because you are throwing up or in the infirmary. [ Reply | More ]

I think it's about maturity, not experience.
