    wful with lots of fighting and verbal abuse. To make matters worse, I myself, have bad ADHD, depression, anxiety and am over 70lbs overweight. I lay around a lot feeling awful about myself, my home and feel like a failure as a mom and in life in general. I have a college degree but never had a successful career bc of low self exteem (also messed up a lot at work bc of undiagnosed ADD). I am now approaching 50 and if it weren't for my kids I probably would just end it all. I feel beyond horrible.

    Tonight, President Trump choked on his well done steak. Efforts were made to revive him, though sources say the EMT's called to the scene stood back and discussed which one would need to perform the Heimlich maneuver. As they debated, Mr Trump drew his last and final breath. His children could not be reached for comment as they were still finishing dessert.

    Hi. My son is a sophmore in highschool, has oppositional defiant disorder, and just told us he was gay, and struggles with keeping friends. He struggles everyday with people making funny of him, bullying him and now a neighbor that he goes to school with has figured out he was gay and now my son is terrified he will go to school and tell everybody. He is already in counseling once a week, but I don't know how to help him. He was crying so hard tonight and I feel horrible. don't know what to do for him. I just feel like bad luck follows him everywhere. He keeps making mistakes and just when I think things are going smooth something else happens. Any advice as to help my son with all that he is dealing with, and how to deal with not having any friends. My heart breaks for him.
