@like a rabid squirrel and @frigwiggin i'm sorry your boyfriends feel this way. i know medication can be an iffy subject, but if it can seriously improve your quality of life, i say go for it. better to find people who can recognize that your mental health comes first and that medication, for some, is a necessary part of the equation.

@thebestjasmine you can try something like the Nasopure which is the same idea as a neti pot but is much easier cause its basically a squirt bottle. so no head twisting/bending. seriously thought irrigate your sinuses, you will feel so much better it will flush out all the goo that's making you feel terrible and you will be able to breath easy.

On [Move/Do Not Move] Directly to [New City/Another New City]

I say move to new city, but don't make your ex you're only friend. Look online for pin ups, book clubs, sewing circles, bike clubs, yoga classes, etc. You want to start meeting new people ASAP, when you get to new city. You can still keep your friendship with your ex, but keep it distant. Meet up for coffee/farmer's market once a month. But no late night dinners/spending the whole day together.

Also move as far away from your ex's neighborhood as possible. The physical distance can make it easier to no rely on him. Especially if take 1 hour+ one way to meet up. Plus you want to explore the city on your own, discover that cool little coffee shop that feels like your place to just chill. So go and have fun but definitely limit contact with your ex when you get there. Good luck!

@BosomBuddy Clinton Street Bakery. Have the sugar cured bacon and pancakes with maple butter. I will be honest the wait is forever (60-90min) but it is more then worth it.

@rosielo You did the right thing. I had a boyfriend tream me the exact same way, if he doesn't want to change or recognize how he failed you as a boyfriend once you get back together it will still be the same. I know it hurts more then you can stand right now. But having someone you love be indifferent to you is so much worse. Good luck

@rimy and @TheclaAndTheSeals About that "other thing" is she doing it cause of legal troubles or because she's having seconds thought about their lifestyle choice"? I just thought it was cause she was rethinking her lifestyle choice. But then I read people who thought well if she's in the same situation as Gillian, then Gillian's issues against her are no longer valid cause they are the same.
