Grieving the Loss of a Pet By Shaz When a person you love dies, it is natural to feel sorrow, express grief, and expect friends and family to provide understanding and comfort. Given the rich and intense relationships most pet owners share with their animal companions, the loss of a pet can be very painful.

The Gun vs. The Needle Your Guide to Piercings By Marionette. ** Please go to a professional when getting any part of your body pierced, lobes or otherwise. ** All piercings, besides the lobes, should be done with a needle and NOT a gun. Guns are typically cheaper, but there are so many more risks involved. Piercing guns have been used for years for piercing people of all ages. Today, though, professional body piercers want to see the gun banned. Why?

The Relationship Game Written by: devs711 Here is my long awaited (or not so awaited) sequel to my article from a while ago entitiled "The Dating Game". OMG! You have a boyfriend/girlfriend! Congratulations!!! Now, I would love to tell you that the hard part is over, but, to be honest, I would be lying. Relationships can and usually will test your inner thoughts and emotions. In order to keep it all going smoothly, you are going to have to be completely steadfast on what you want...

What is OCD? Written by: Casey You pick up your keys and set them back down. You do it again and again, until it feels right. Then you place the keys in your pocket and take them out. You keep doing it, counting silently, breathing deeply. Thirty minutes later you finally make in out the door. These little 'quirks' rule your life. You plan your day around them. People around you throw out a term repetitively: OCD. But what does that mean? What is OCD? What can you do about it ? What...

Panic Attacks Written by Lee and Marie. What is a panic attack? A panic attack is an unforeseen incident of extreme fear caused by a sudden onset of anxiety. Depending on both the type of anxiety and the situation, there may or may not be an external factor triggering the event.

Dissociation and You: Making a Grounding Kit. If you ever find yourself unable to remember what you have recently done, be it for five minutes or hours at a time, you may be dissociating. Being unable to remember recent events is called amnesia or memory loss. For some people this is a medical condition but for others is due to dissociation.

Online Safety and You: Protecting Yourself by Jer Did your mother tell you not to talk to strangers? Probably. This bit of advice has been repeated time and time again by parents who are afraid that someone might hurt their children. Let's face it, not everyone in the world is trustworthy. With the advent of the Internet, especially social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, predators have found a new way to find and track down potential targets. A dedicated person can run a...

Healthy Relationships: The Fundamentals by Jer Relationships sure are awesome! You meet someone--at a party or school event--and start talking, get to know them a little, and pretty soon you're thinking, “Wow, this person is really cool. I think I want to spend more time with them.” So you end up going on a couple of dates, or just hanging out for a while. One thing leads to another, and suddenly you're “together.” Excellent! Congratulations. However, from the first moment you set foot...

Online Safety and You: Protecting your Computer by Jer If you spend time online, you know how great the Internet can be. Through the Internet you can access games, music, movies, books, educational resources (like dictionaries and encyclopedias), online communities and their members, market sites (like eBay), and of course, just about any bit of information you could need. However, even with all the advantages of using the Internet, there exists a darker side. Hackers that patrol the...

Know Your Rights - Bullying at Work Written by: Casey, Katrina, Jessie, and Shaz We have all heard about students being bullied at school, but many of us do not realize that bullying is also quite common in the "real world".

Bullying can happen anywhere, not only in the form of physical assault but also as verbal...
