Letter Home

The following is a letter written to her parents while she is away at college.

Dear Mom and Dad,

I am sorry it has taken me this long to write you, but I will update you on all the latest activities happening in my life.

You are not to read any further unless you are sitting down, OK? Are you sitting? Things are going pretty good now. The skull fracture and concussion I got jumping out of the window of my dormitory when it caught fire are almost healed. I did have to spend two weeks in the hospital and now my sight is almost back to normal and I only get the violently ill headaches once a day.

Since the dorm was destroyed I moved into an apartment with a gas station attendant who lives nearby. We are hoping to get married soon! Although we don't have the exact date picked out, we would like it to be before my pregnancy begins to show. He is of a different race and religion than ours, but I'm sure you will love him as much as I do.

Now here's the good news. There was no dormitory fire, I did not have a concussion or a skull fracture and I was not in the hospital. I am not pregnant, I'm not engaged and to be honest, there isn't even a boyfriend in my life. However, I am getting a D in French and an F in Chemistry and I wanted you to see these grades in proper prospective.

Love,
Your daughter

Believe it or not? Was this letter really written or all we all suckers who believe everything we read? Take our poll and see what other think.

Last weeks story, Cheese Chase, about those crazy Brits who chase cheese down a dangerously steep hill had a lot of you thinking it was true. I don't know for a fact if it is true or not. Every story I've read about this tradition is the same one and they all say it really happens. You can either head to England yourself to find out or decide for yourself if it's true or not.

Here are last weeks poll results:

Believe It or Not?

Yes: 85 percent
No: 4 percent
I don't know: 9 percent

On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.  ^^This There are so many variables, it's hard to make sure polygraphs are working to model standards.

wow this topic is rarely spoken, thanks for sharing it!! [s:p/zxl] 8) 8) Thank you for reading! I think as days go by it gets more and more talked about, but I don't think there can ever be enough said, especially about positive strategies. It seems like we tend to dwell on the worst and not the solution sometimes. Not to mention I don't think there's anything inherently bad about these things.

Ok so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now Thank you so much for sharing? You're really brave to talk about that, and I know that sharing your story is going to help somebody else. Thank you. :)
