    Alright so I got my 6 week old puppy 4 days ago ( yes I know it is too young and I honestly would’ve like to have wait, but he was not a reputable breeder and I spent alot of time researching how many side effects this can have, and how to prevent them.) The first 2 days and nights she was very lethargic and honestly didn’t care if she was in the crate or not, didn’t cry about anything. I got her on a Thursday night and took her to the vet Friday to find that she had roundworms and 2 other types of parasites. (Again, I knew full well that she was not healthy the way she needed to be and I had every intention of taking her to the vet and making her better before I even bought her, so please don’t criticize me for wanting to make a sick puppies life better instead of a happy healthy one that will end up in a nice home anyways.) Well after taking her medicine and pooping out a load of disgusting roundworms she is a comepletely new puppy with all the energy that is normal for a boston terrier. Well the problem is now that she actually cares she refuses to go in her crate without crying for an hour. I play and tire her out before I put her in to the point she can barely keep her eyes open leading her into it, but the instant I shut the door it’s like a screaming whimper. I also know you ignore it in order to teach them that whining is not the way to get what they want. The thing I’m worried about it because of all that’s going on because the parasites will take about 1-2 week to clear up her urinating and defecating patterns are comepletely random and I won’t know when she’s crying to go potty. She has had probably about 5 pee accidents in the house which I guess is normal even though I’m trying to take her out on a half hour basis except when she’s napping. As soon as I put the leash on her she knows exactly what I’m doing and she walks out and goes without a problem. I guess all I’m asking is what to do after rambling on, I’ve done so much research online and spent hours reading library books on the perfect way to train them. I just want the best for her.

    I was bored and curious so I decided to ask this question. I don’t have a major fear of flying, but I sometimes get nervous. Mainly during takeoff, if there’s a lot of turbulence, if we’re flying though thick/dark clouds, and landing. Specially when the plane makes a lot of turns right before landing, I get pretty nervous because since we’re so close to the ground I feel like the plane is just going to tip over and fall to the ground.

    So what makes you uncomfortable/nervous about flying?

    I just got home from college a few days ago, and when I got back I hadn’t eaten anything for the last 2 days, since I was traveling and I get motion sickness. Only since then I woke up, and I felt awful. A headache, a weird feeling in my chest. I got something to eat, but my body told me to stop – I ignored it and eat a normal meal, but then I felt a strange kind of stomach feeling that i can’t describe, getting worse over 4 hours, until i threw up. The same thing has happened every time I try to eat or drink since then, and it seems like my digestive system has just shut down – I’m just throwing up exactly what I ate, and not going to the bathroom. Also not sleeping, getting cold really easily, and not being able to stand up for long.

    I am in the US, and I don’t have any insurance or money, so does any one have any experiences or tips to see if I can clear this up in the next few days before I really do /have/ to go?

    hi all, i’ll tell a story…i usually don’t interact much with girls until that day, when this girl made her way in to my life. It was she who initiated the talks and i was a good listener. We chatted online, travelled together back home from office, had lunch together, and we lived like this for almost two months. I began to realise that i could never afford to miss her, for she was there in my mind day and night..She was a socially active kind of a person and on occassions i have wondered what exactly was in her mind. I was feeling choked and wanted to open my heart to her..On day i was missing her so much and voluntarily or unvoluntarily (i still don’t know) i texted her ‘”I love you, I care for you”. Next day I received her reply “Here after pls don’t talk to me”. I expected some rejection but not to the extent of this..For 2 days we didn’t speak..I was getting frustrated and apologised to her. I told her that i just expressed my feeling and there was nothing wrong to be taken on that..I also told her that she is my sweet friend and requested her not to leave me alone..But she did not care to listen. She says i have broken her trust on me and that she wanted just to be my friend and not more than that..I know how she feels, but at least can’t she forgive her friend who has apologised to her ( I don’t regret for what I had told any way). She is completely ignoring me. I wish i had all those good times back, the days we spent together as good friends..But I am happy that at least i have made her realise how i feel for her although the effect was negative. I’ll have no regrets later on that i didn’t express my love.
    Now my question

    1) Why she is ignoring me? Does she love me
    2) Why she does not react to my appologies and continue keeping away from me?
    3) What shud i do..? If not love atleast i want to be with her always as a true loving friend
    4) Give me some tips to proceed to win her back
