On Holiday Gift Take-Backs

I gave one of my high school boyfriends basketball shorts and a framed pic of me for his birthday. It was a super great photo taken in Autumn with all the leaves and me in a turtleneck etc. This was before the age of digital, and as the photo had been taken by a family friend and I didn't have the negatives, when we broke up I wanted it back! One day in the hallway while he was talking to a friend, without even turning my head to look at him I all high-and-mightily said, "I want my picture back." as I walked by. A couple days later he was waiting for me outside of one of my classes, holding the picture like a dog with its tail between its legs. I walked up to him, snatched it, curtly said, "Thank you." and I think whipped my hair in his face as I turned around? Seriously, in high school I think I could have been on "Mean Girls", but...it was sooo satisfying.

On The Best Time I Met My Birthmother

This was great, thank you so much for sharing. I am an adoptee, too, and empathize about many of your sentiments and experience. I'm not quite ready yet to take the plunge and do a serious search leading to a meeting, but your story was encouraging!

On My Case With Accutane

GUYS. Accutane or other prescription meds are not the only choice for acne. I started getting acne when I was 9 and it developed into a serious case of bumpy red face. My dermatologist kept pushing Accutane on me as the last resort, but I knew a guy who took it and his family says he's never been the same, psychologically. I did my own research in medical journals and the possible side effects are SERIOUS diseases, not just dry skin!

So I went to my local health store and began naturally healing myself and haven't looked back. I can go on beach holidays and not wear foundation the entire time! Any of the following gel tablets are worth trying before using Accutane:

-Vitamin A
-Vitamin E
-Royal Jelly
-Evening Primrose Oil
-Omega 3

Everyone's skin is different, but natural remedies will always be easier on the system and more, well...natural!
