I have explained to my husband that I do not like him being in a bar by himself but he continually ignores me. What can I do to make him understand how I feel?

Discuss this question

Question found in People & Relationships In General
Maximum provided a great response.

I'm going to be more blunt.

I'd bet that he understands completely how you feel. Disregarding alcoholism, jealousy, philandering, control and other factors which could be involved, I'm going to cut to the bottom line.

He probably believes that his wish is more important than yours.

You probably believe that your wish is more important than his.

This is not a who is "right or wrong" dispute, it is a values conflict.

It is unlikely that either of you will prevail. You BOTH have to figure out a workable solution or decide that your conflicting values are insurmountable and go your separate ways.

Best of luck.

I am a preschool director and I observed a 5 year old child (boy) turning his head to the right, and looking through the left corner of his eyes to see a story book. Is this something visual or developmental? Do I need to alert the parents? Please let me know

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
It could be either, although I would suspect visual.

Yes, you should contact his parents.

Early detection, diagnosis and correction of this type of problem is critical.

Screening children for potential difficulties is very much a part of preschool.

I'm on the pill and I come off it last Saturday and I was meant to have my period 2 days ago and I still don't have it does that automatically mean I'm pregnant or can it b stress related?

Discuss this question

Question found in Miscellaneous
Stopping the pill is a major change in body endocrinology (hormones). Don't expect "normal" for at least a month or more.

Missing a period for two days after stopping the pill is insignificant. If you don't have a period for over a month, you might wish to call your doctor.

Concluding pregnancy two days late after stopping the pill five days ago is rather premature.

Discuss this question

Question found in Employment Law
If you don't know what Discovery Requests are, don't even THINK about drafting them yourself.

You need an EEO lawyer ASAP.

My Grand daughter is 2 yrs old and ever since she started eating table food (about 10 months old) she breaks out in hives all over her little body. She has an Uncle on her Fathers side who is allergic to food dyes so I tried watching what she eats and I have noticed when ever she eats anything with yellow #5 or #6 in it she gets these little circles under her eyes and patches under her arms and behind each knee, and if she drinks anything with yellow in it her little diaper area is bright red. We have taken her to her Ped. but all he says it is dry skin and not to use soap on her and put baby oil or vasoline all over her, but that has not worked. Can you please tell me what kind of Dr. do I need to take her to? I have heard that maybe a chiropractor could help but I thought they were for back pain.

Discuss this question

Question found in Personal Health Issues
Based on your observations to her reactions to specific dietary items, I would guess that you're heading in the right direction.

A Chiropractor MAY help, but unlikely.

She needs to see an Allergist. Bring ALL of your notes and experimental results. This will help direct them and may save some testing.

My husband and I are seeking divorce. We did share the matrimonial home. My husband has left the home and still comes into the house without warning, this makes me feel uncomfortable - can I change the locks without giving him a key?

Discuss this question

Question found in Legal Other
It depends on any FORMAL separate living arrangements (court supervised).

If he merely lives elsewhere for the moment and unofficially, he still owns the property equally with you. If this is the case, he cannot be criminally charged for breaking in to his own house if the locks are changed.

At the very least, he should respect that he is living elsewhere and grant you some privacy. It would be respectful for him to call first and state a particular reason for the visit. He should honor your reasonable wishes regarding his reason. "Checking on the house" in the absence of any apparent problem is probably bogus. "I need to pick up a few things" is fine. Put them near the door so he doesn't need to rummage around for them.

Things are tough enough without letting them become complicated over a house. If nothing else, put the house on the market and sell it, divide the proceeds equally and get your own place to which he has no ownership or tenancy interest.

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
Could be bruised, cracked or broken rib(s).

It would be good to see a doctor to rule out any serious complications.

If nothing else, they might be able to give you some pain relief.
