Terry, thank you for your concern for my daughter and her BF, she is in rough shape both emotionally and physically right now.

But more importantly, I agree with Stacy and Kades, that you need to relax and and just take it all in slowly. Get yourself informed about these problems so you know where you stand. And yes, converse with Kades, she will guide you right. Also, PM me any time if you need to "let it out". I too know about getting diagnoses "sprung" on me. My prayers and thoughts are with you. You, yourself say you are a strong and healthy person and you will get through this.

Why?

I have taught my kids from little on not to have prejudices. So far they have been terrific! Sons had friends who are homosexuals, porno business, some selling things that were not legal. Girls pal with lesbians, pregnant and moms not married, also some prostitutes. instead of condemning them for it, I look to it as form of life that we all hear about. Isn't that what we are supposed to do is help one another if they ask? These kids that they pal around with are considered not acceptable by most. They come to the house and I do not want to know what they do, treat them all the same. Kind of bothers me that the parents aren't more involved in their lives and try to understand their problems.

My question is why do people look down on my family when they are only trying to befriend these kinds of people with their lifestyles. They never ask them about it but only give them his feeling about his own lifestyle. I brought them up to know that what they do in life they have to answer to a power much greater than the local authorities. None have been in jail, (so far) gotten any kind of tickets, but my family get criticized for acceptance of these individuals.

In this world, you have to be very strong and trust your gut feelings about many things. It truly hurts when someone makes comments about your kids and don't know the reasons why they do the things they do. I don't like the lifestyle but why condemn them for something they may regret later on in life. Can we not live and let live?

Not only that but when you change the dressing it wont stick like plain gauze those little pads are a great thing to keep around along with first aid tape. If you can manage to keep it clean you can change it every two or three days. I have never found bandaids good for much because the cut is so small you don't usually need one and maybe because my cuts are usually pretty bad but the are great for kids and their boo boos. Also I think Bag Balm is one of the best things for cuts ever.

Tried the mini pad thing, jp. Perfect for "soaking" up the blood and kept the sheets pristine.

When I got up this morning, the "bandage" was soaked so I took it off. Turns out the panty liners I have don't have the nonstick surface, so I opened up the flood gates again. In between sessions of mopping and compressing, I found a Band-Aid large enough that DID have a Telfa surface. Put that on, then a panty liner bandage. Gotta get some of the nonstick liners 'cause I know this thing's going to take a while to stop "leaking."

Thanks for the tip.

I was thinking something different than the panty ones but the other ones that are light. Also make sure you tape real snug but not so much you lose circulation. Sounds like you are a bleeder when you get cut I'm the same way. I think thats why I like the Bag Balm which is actually used for cows udders it's a salve for rough dry udders but also has an antiseptic for minor infections I have even used it as a lip balm. Once I cut myself so bad on the mandoline I had a thick slice on my finger that was just barely attached I used the balm and the cut pads and wrapped snug the flap it actually grew back together. Still have a scar but other than that it worked out great. Are you familiar with Bag Balm? I know it's for cows udders but I have used it for many years it works great on the cracked skin on hand and fingers. Many people keep a container in the house for these purposes. Will put up the web site I really believe it's better than Neosporin.

Yes, I'm familiar with Bag Balm. Live in a farming community. Readily available here. Good to know as I have a negative reaction to Neosporin. Thanks again.

It is so good it's sold in some druge stores. For DC folks that are not familiar with this product. Just read the feed back on this site.

There are a lot of different reasons:
People fear what they do not know or understand
Some people can only feel good about themselves by putting others down
Some are just plain insecure
Some turned their bible upside down so instead of reading "Love the sinner hate the sin" they read "hate the sinner envy the sin"
Some are full of hate and anger and love to share
Some have gone senile, and people actually still listen to them anyway
etc etc etc
