    uncompetitive, and the other kid is super competitive and bossy. this is not the first time that ds has been bullied, and we're trying to understand why this happening..I'm so upset. I'm not sure what we're doing wrong. turns out this kid has been pointing and laughing at ds for months when he sees him in the hallway. I'm heartbroken and I feel helpless, especially since ds has been bullied before. he just isn't advocating for himself, and now I have to talk to our friends about it.

She is a normal kid who is sweet and nice and smart and has friends, but there are some kids who have been persistently nasty to her for the past 2 years and it is unfathomable to me. There is no reason for it really, she's just their preferred victim. I'm sorry to hear about any kid being bullied. It's arbitrary and unfair and it just sucks.

    ab muscle lining was stretched so tight that muscles bulge out a bit. I am really fit, no belly fat, you can see outline of my abs, but not a flat tummy. So annoying. The dr said correcting it would mean putting in a mesh and its such a minor thing- slight bulge- that in his opinion not worth surgery and I should find exercises to pull muscles in. So far found nothing.
