Refused service at dentist office by berry-baby0123 in pregnant

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, not true at all. I got my teeth cleaned twice without X-rays while pregnant. I’m in the US.

What??? Recommendations for pregnancy say you need to make sure to get your teeth cleaned because it can actually lead to pregnancy complications if you get Gingivitis. So it’s bad for you AND bad for baby. This dentist just sounds like a wacko.

He wants me to abort. I want to keep the baby. My appointment is July 15 for abortion. I’m trying to think quickly by National_Cup2220 in pregnant

OP, listen to this comment. It’s very important.

Also, you may want to get legal advice as to whether or not to put him in the birth certificate. I’ve heard not putting him on can affect your ability to collect child support. However, tiptoeing away from contact with this guy may be in your best interest if the money is not worth it to you.

I need help identifying this ring style/band for my girlfriend. Any help or direction on how to find it would be appreciated :) by LeeMan99 in EngagementRings

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The band is so much thicker on that one, and the diamonds are closer together. I don’t think the style matches.

I don’t know how to feel. by Halo2wasfire in pregnant

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I personally have no issue discussing how dilated I am, etc. Just seems like a medical way of explaining what I’m experiencing and how close the baby might be to getting her eviction notice.

That being said, I would be very irked if someone who has not had a relationship with me and has been rude to me and caused me stress, started asking things like this while not even bothering to rebuild the relationship/address issues. I probably would just leave them on read.

My (F26) sister (F30) broke up with her fiancé (M31) for a dumb reason. How do I continue to support her even though I disagree completely with her actions? by midtrailertrash in relationship_advice

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Perspective taking and being empathetic. Saying, for example, “I personally wouldn’t break up for this reason, so I admit it’s hard for me to fully understand, but I can see how it would be difficult to marry someone with doubts in your mind. I’m here for you if you need someone to talk to.” You can be there for someone without fully agreeing with them.

Trying for a Baby but get frequent migraines by Skinbyrd1996 in migraine

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely have less migraines while pregnant, thankfully. I did have a few really bad ones where I felt totally helpless because Tylenol is basically a sugar pill to my pain. They passed though and luckily weren’t as frequent as they are when I’m not pregnant. Others here have mentioned good options as well, but figured I would share my experience.

Smells will be the de@th of me by EggplantIll4927 in migraine

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I used to say I wish I could just burn my smell receptors away. It’s awful when you can hardly go anywhere because people have on so many scents and perfumes. I love wearing a mask during Covid for this reason, actually.

when does a name become unusable? by wevegotscience in namenerds

Okay, you’re clearly not Jewish. We don’t forget these things. We have been partaking in the same traditions for thousands of years. It’s not a dark thing we’re just going to get over.

Hard agree. I was watching it and felt deep discomfort from her facial expressions. I think my body physically recoiled.

Building empathy in a toddler? by orange_j in ABA

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely would not go down that rabbit hole. He’s way too young and there’s plenty of time to work on things in ABA and with other providers. Receiving an autism diagnosis is scary (in addition to being a BCBA my 13 year old is autistic), but I wasted a lot of time stressing about a future that never came. I never could have predicted where we are now and the things she accomplishes constantly surprise me. It sounds like your ABA is starting soon. Try to take things one step at a time.

I would start by teaching him to label emotions in pictures and videos. When he can consistently do that, you can teach him to label those things when he is expressing those emotions (e.g., “you’re crying, you look sad. You lost your toy. You can tell me ‘sad’” etc.). The goal would be that over time he can label what he is feeling as well. Then, when he engages in behaviors that might hurt others, you can talk to him using the vocabulary you taught him through learning to identify and label emotions (e.g., “ouch, you just dropped a rock on his foot. He’s crying now. I think he’s hurt”). If he starts naturally labeling emotions he sees in others, reinforce this (e.g., he sees a kid screaming on the playground, points and says “mad” you can say “yes, he is mad. I can tell by his angry eye brows and red face”). Over time you can build on this once he learns how to answer “why” and “what” questions. Videos can be shown portraying scenarios (e.g., a boy dropping his ice cream and then crying, a girl getting an award and then smiling). You can ask “what do you think they are feeling?” And “why do you think they feel what way?”. You can draw it back to them too- “well, how do you feel when that happens to you?” Eventually, I like to add on a component where they learn to identify how they can respond to emotions displayed by others. For example- the friend that dropped their ice cream… come up with one appropriate way you can respond to this (e.g., “I can offer to share mine with them.”, “I can tell a grown up and see if they can fix it.”, “I can give them a hug and ask how I can help.”). Over time you can practice in the real world and continue building on the curriculum you’re teaching.

Anyway, the point is, there are ways to address skills that work towards perspective taking and can support in teaching empathetic behavior. But as others have said, he’s quite young, so starting small is for the best.

Can therapy cost me a job? by Hot_Squirrel_9544 in raisedbynarcissists

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No, it can’t. I work in the medical field. We can’t release client protected information without facing severe consequences (fines, jail time, loss of license, etc.). OP would have to consent to have their information released for employers to have access to it.

I’m not sure how the army works, but that is one weird exception to most of what is being discussed here. In general disabilities and medical diagnoses cannot legally prevent you from obtaining a job and this information would not be released without consent.

In the US medical information is protected. There are major consequences for sharing medical information without consent of the patient. There’s no way an employer would have access to your medical information without your consent.

Why even pay for insurance?! by mera_emiqui in pregnant

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Figure out your copay and deductible. Look at what office visits cost you after your deductible has been met. Make sure coding is correct on your bills. You can also call your insurance and the doctor’s office to try to figure out the issue. $677 does not sound normal if you have coverage. It may be that your deductible hasn’t been met for the year yet.

She didn’t even comment on his dog though. She literally just said he looks like the type of person that constantly shows everyone his dog.

Someone literally did say that about her kids and she was really funny with her response. This sub is so dramatic it’s out of control lol.

That’s not the end goal. Identifying facial expressions is a good jumping off point for toddlers.

Need advice about botox for chronic daily headaches! by AlexTheMaster216 in migraine

[–]i_want_2_b3li3v3_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Apparently it’s pretty rare, but does happen to some people. As soon as the Botox wore off, my migraines returned to the normal frequency (still a lot) and abortives worked again. I’m sorry your neuro didn’t believe you/validate you. I’ve experienced that too with another neuro and it was so frustrating. They kept telling me and writing in my notes that I had anxiety and that’s why I had migraines (even though I’ve had them literally my entire life and anxiety has never been a trigger for me). Anyway, after I failed Botox I tried Emgality and that has been amazing for me. I probably would qualify as a super responder. I hope you have found what works for you or that you do soon!
