The Ultimate Cure for Hiccups

Everyone thinks they know the best way to cure hiccups - so-called “sure-fire solutions” like chugging a big glass of water or holding your breath for as long as you can or standing on your head while doing both of those things. But now there’s a much easier solution. Kidzworld has found a new cure that works, but only if you’re able to catch those nasty hiccups early. Check it out!

The Ear-Rubbing Method

In order for the ear-rubbing method to work, it’s important that you notice your hiccups as soon as they begin. You can’t let them get out of hand. Any more than 1-3 hiccups and it may be too late.

Here’s How it Works

Place your thumbs behind your earlobes and place the inside edge of your index fingers on top of your earlobes (see the image above). In that position, rub the entire earlobe from top to bottom for 20 seconds or more. Concentrate on the motion and soon the hiccups will be forgotten.

The Ultimate Cure

Does it seem too good to be true? Well, it’s not! By some strange miracle, the ear-rubbing method actually works! No more bloating yourself with big glasses of water, downing spoonfuls of sugar, or drinking pickle juice (yuck!). This is the easiest method to rid yourself of hiccups, and you can do it anywhere, any time. Next time you or your friends have the hiccups, give it try!

I think the title is fairly self explanatory. I don't know how to explain self harm scars and cuts to my friends (don't even get me started on my father) without having them completely freak out on me or think I'm a total basket case. I can't hide most the scars and cuts given their placement. I'd also like to know how to explain it to a friend's parent bc I know that will be a problem too. - (Note: I'm not insane. Just have been a tough time lately and I snapped under too much pressure. I'm not a danger to myself anymore. End of story.) - I don't like to go into detail when discussing my self harm and why I did it, but I know my friends are very inquisitive like their parents. I just want to know how to ride out the conversation and would appreciate any help in the matter. Thanks!

But you're not in your right mind when you make that decision, or even think about it seriously.Bullying can lead to suicide, but I urge everyone thinking about it to also think of the good in their life. Exactly, because, I promise, life gets better. Even when it seems like it's not, it does, in the darkest part of your life, you'll find the hope that you lost.

TALK TO SOMEONE... it really helps to understand and get the emotions out and get help.[Jordan I hopes you doesnt mind but I moved to the Dear Dish It and done the sticky toffee :angel] It's okay Huge, I didn't know which one to put it on, because I knew you'd move it if I got it wrong, but thank you.
