    ***Possible Trigger*** A nightmare I've had before

    ***TRIGGER WARNING*** If you are easily triggered than don't read this. I can't tell anyone about this dream, because I don't have many people in my life - just my family, really, no friends that I can share things with. Last night I had this dream for the second time - a really awful dream -...

    Are newborn baby hiccups normal?

    About 2 weeks ago, my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Our baby’s quite healthy. He eats and sleeps well but one thing that’s been bothering me about him is his hiccups.

    I've been taken for granted, treated like a crap and I lost my baby

    Okay, so there was this guy named Dark (not his real name), I used to like. I really love him so much that I even decided to give him my first (if you know what I mean). Yeah, he got my virginity. He begged for it because he was also a virgin that time and wanted to try sex. Actually, I didn't...
