Sick, Confused, Stressed out.

  • I am sick as a dog. Coughing, sneezing, ear hurts. I just wanna feel better. If anyone has a simple home remedy for a summer time cold I'd appreciate it.

    Also, I've been feeling pressured by my boyfriend of 11 days. What do I tell him?

    I'm almost 17 years old and I'd love for people to give me advice and listen to what I have to say.

    I appreciate it very much.. Thank you.

  • KristinJean,

    Hello Hunn, Hope You feel better very soon.

    Have you tried taking any nyquil ? Tea ?

    coughdrops work very well for colds. as well

    hope something works.

    I would love to hear the story with your boyfriend as to why,

    your feeling pressured and offer some advice.


  • Well, not to be too blunt but he's pressuring me to have sex with him.

    I told him no.

    He keeps touching me.

    He says he feels bad about pressuring me.

    (So he's aware of what he's doing)

    He apologizes and stops for a while.

    Then he starts again.

    He says I'm teasing him,

    but I don't notice anything.

    And My nana bought me some cough syrup and alieve haha. 🙂

    Thank you.

  • Hey KristinJean,

    Do you have a fever? How long have you had this cough? For the fever I usually take

    tylenol cold and flu (am) in the morning and (pm) for the evening. Hydrate yourself. Lots of

    fluid. Hot soup! As for in betweens hot tea w/honey and some ginger. Also it also helps to

    gargle w/listerine every three hours. Make sure you water down a little bit. This usually helps

    combat a cold and a bad cough. If this coughing persist for another week or you do develop

    a temperature its best to see your primary physician. They may need to prescribe you some


    As for your mr. touchy feely boyfriend - Kris you seem to feel uncomfortable with him I suggest

    you tell him to get the **** out. He doesn't respect you, nor your feelings He does the things he does to you knowingly you don't like the things he does. You need a boyfriend that respects your wishes and doesn't make you feel pressured - period. It may seem too direct but "no" means "no." Stand your ground.



  • I really like him.

    He helped me to get over my ex of two years,.

    I honestly truly believe he really does like me.

    He's so sweet.

    He just get likes that if we kiss or something.

    I'll give him another chance...

    I haven't heard from him today, i'm really worried.

    His parents are really abusive to him.

    I don't think I have a fever but I have no way to check it.


    I got alieve and robitussin.



  • KristinJean

    What are you looking for in a guy, ask yourself... NO LIMITATIONS

    then, ask yourself do he reach at least 65% of the requirements ?

    and is he worthy ? You should tell him what you want why and if he cant

    agree to your standards which is just mutual respect than he is'nt

    deserving. Sometimes if we dont have standards we are put in a position

    to accept anything, stand your ground hun.

    Hope you feel better very soon.

  • thank you so much.

    he got grounded so i haven't seen him since i wrote this.

    but i'm gonna give him another chance.

    thank you all. 🙂

    God bless you.
