"For me, it would depend on who you were asking for help. If it's from your doctor, I personally would hesitate. Medical records aren't really private. And a depression diagnosis has implications in life.
Sorry to say that, but it's…"
"Maybe it's an age thing - I'm over 50 - but I'm a big believer in not using chemicals to alter my mood, any more than coffee or tea will.
Personally I think that school having an outlet for boys boisterousness and the kids learning…"
"I have wondered about this as well and suspect it is a combination of factors:
1. Boys' part time jobs tended to be blue collar jobs - lawn maintenance, grease monkey, and so on. Our society says you are a loser if you're blue collar.…"
"isn't the labor force participation rate calculated based on those eligible to be working, aka non incarcerated?
So while one must ask why we lock up so many, I'm not sure it's relevant to declining participation."
"For some reason my replies aren't going where I expect them to -- but the comment in this thread where "Small business used to provide most of the jobs."
Small businesses started being crowded out with FDR. Why? This is because the…"
"This isn't new, either. I remember reading Paul Ragonese's book _Soul of a Cop_ - he was a NYC policeman.

"I think the important thing is to do what you can do, and do it well.
I REALLY want to get back to regular exercise, and once I'm through with a current short term intense job I'm doing I will.

"Before I was 50, I spent 8.5 years going to school at night finishing a bachelors and getting a masters.

Best I can tell, your complaint is that men -- particularly Asian or Korean men -- aren't into dark-skinned women. You say your parents immigrated to the U.S., so it doesn't sound like you live in Asia. You call yourself a…"
"I'll have to think about this some more, but one things comes to mind right off.
The volatility of the classes makes for some of the mismatches you mention. Purely income-wise I grew up probably somewhere between middle-class and…"
1. You seem to have self-loathing, low self esteem, and bad self image.
2. You live in Korea? Asian countries can be tough to deal with if you are not Asian. However, I can tell you many other countries in the world DO in fact like black…"
Just saw this and figured Id reply. I was a BLM/Forest Service firefighter for four years, two on engines and last two on a hotshot crew. The biggest thing honestly is calling and or visiting fire captains to show your interest. Some of…"
