It's 2017 and it amazes me how many people can't grasp how to use their credit cards/bank cards. "WHERE DO I WRITE THE TIP??" ...honey, I haven't even run your card yet. This isn't Denny's. Another alarming thing is the amazing math skills I witness daily   Read more
The real thing sounds a hell of a lot better, tbh.
That's what it basically is in this ridiculous trend though.

Flavored mayo = "aioli."

Yep. I was having a debate with this with a friend who is always trying to sound pretentious as treetrunk and I keep telling her to stop using aioli because it's just a trendy word at the moment for mayo (and she's referring to garlic mayo when she uses this t   Read more
"Garlic mayo, chipotle mayo, basil mayo, etc."

It's just silly and pretentious, nevermind they use it as justification to overcharge on their basic cookiemonster dishes haha.

It's mayo. Garlic mayo or whatever other flavor it's given with what it's mixed with. But essentially, it's mayo.

"Aioli" is trendier and making something plain into something pretentious. The creative community showing their douchebaggery at its fines   Read more
Bwahaha.

I bet gastropubs "deconstruct" their dishes too.
Just fricken call it mayo. The "foodies" are trying to fancy up common foods by renaming them something else. It's lol when people just fall in line with the douchebaggery without thinking.
"Aioli" is such a douchebag word.
Stop acknowledging trolls, dear.
When you're the chicken teases of the zodiac....

But generally, I'd blame it on guys generally are used to getting their way because society dictates it and women let them push them around like that.

"Remember, you 'pursue' her enough, she'll break down and say yes!"

We have similar injuries and scenarios. In highschool, I hyper extended my knee and I damaged one of my ligaments. I'm assuming I have a slight tear on my right leg's LCL and Meniscus. Anyways, what I was getting to was I never seen a doctor. Years of just living with it has made my left leg overcompensate the grunt of any sport activity or impact towards my body. If I would need to fall, jump down a ledge, get hit, I made sure my left leg was ready to absorb my weight. Now it hurts too recently. I have to be careful with my right knee when I do any high level activity.

It can be treated without surgery.


Seriously???? How? I'm actually considering seeing a doctor somewhat soon. Is it only the ACL that needs surgery if damaged?


He's full of butter. If you've gone this long without any sort of treatment, it could likely need surgery since you could have made the tears worse.

He needs a professional to look at it, and maybe do a McMurray test or something.

I agree that advice over the Internet is difficult without a physical exam.


Obviously.

Did you Google that one? Because you forgot the anterior drawer test.

Lol.

MSK was actually one of my stronger subjects in med school.

Explains why you're getting all crazy with over diagnosing something so basic. The general medical community is notorious for over medicating and over diagnosing basic, structural issues. Examples- carpal tunnel and unnecessary spinal surgeries.

What you touch on in med school pales in comparison to what orthos and PTs cover. I've heard of GPs putting people in wheel chairs for grade 1 sprains because all they learned was "keep off of it and give it rest."

Are you specializing in ortho?

Omg this thread. Dxp is so awful for any sort of health advice. Remember, this is a place where the "healing crystals" mentality exists. Magic oils and spices will cure all and lol @ whoever mentioned timed eating, which has been debunked over and over.

OP, you're a former athlete and you're doing an exercise regimen that's bothering your knees.

Stop the regimen and let them get better. Two, people who did athletics growing up tend to have joints that age a bit faster than most. You're now older and going to feel it more often, which means you need to be careful when starting up a new routine out of the blue.

Also, it could be something as your hamstrings and quads are too tight/creating an imbalance, hence the knee pain.

Low back could be out of place which affects the q angle of the hip/knee. Women also tend to be more prone to knee pain/injuries because of the imbalance between the strong quad muscles and the weak hamstring muscles, so that should be compensated by getting the hamstrings up to snuff to balance out the quads.

There could be many, many reasons why your knees are bothering you, but based on the info provided, it could be something as simple as tendinitis, which is treated by rest, stretching, and ice.

She is African American and has a family history of arthritis.

I think it's more complex than a simple compensation. You're right about the Q-angle though.

You're overlooking, which is what a lot of people do. Structure first. A LOT structural injuries are caused by poor biomechanics which can be simply fixed vs going gung ho and extreme diagnoses and over-medicating. It could very well be linked to family history, but what I suggested would also benefit arthritis. After all, and you should know this considering this post is all about you and your medical insight, that both of those are the same thing on a basic level, hence similar treatment options.

I don't know what your intuition is trying to tell you but is trying to tell you something which is why you are feeling fear.

Vibes are real! It sounds like you're feeling A vibe that you don't understand. Like the Libra switched up on you.

I think that he is showing you that he can be quite inconsiderate of your feelings. I wouldn't treetruk with him.




Uh, I'd say the same about her. The cling factor with this chick is over 9000.

Op, I feel you. You two have a connection, where no matter what went down, you two talked.

I think maybe your intuition is trying to tell you something.

This is not the case for everybody cuz but a dominant vibration on those dating apps are married men looking for side chicks or people in primary relationships looking to play.

I don't know if you met him in person yet but people online you got to take everything they say with a grain of salt.

Like his story just doesn't make sense; men who are like brothers would rarely kick their bro out, out in the middle of night.

It just doesn't make sense like on a gut level it just doesn't make sense. And if it doesn't make sense is usually a lie.

Now a bytch with throw a man out in the middle of the night !!! Lol!


I was thinking the same thing. One argument and he's kicked out? Either he thought WAY too much into his roommate's friendship or he's full of butter and something else went down.

I always lol when people come here with "I met this person on a dating app, things escalated quickly between us (sex, hanging out, whatever), and now it's going to butter/I'm finding out weird butter!"

....*sigh*

Dating. App. Are people really this treetrunking clueless?
