I can totally sympathize with this one. I support car dealers who use my company’s mobile app - I can’t tell you how many times older dealers will ask to speak to a man because not only am I a woman, I am also Southern. I have had to learn to actually suppress my accent so I’ll stop being insulted by callers. I had a “gentleman” just last week tell me to “shut my jaws and listen” twice because he didn’t understand what I was trying to tell him - which was to turn his phone off :/ (btw, my accent is NOT Julia Sugarbaker-thick so it wasn’t that he misunderstood me due to accent…he was just a patronizing old jerk)
Just had my first child 4 months ago, and I went from 3cm to delivering within 20 minutes of my water breaking. Totally possible.

Misophonia is no joke. I am filled with a completely unnatural rage any time I hear utensils on dinnerware, crunchy foods, and smacky noises.

I wish this worked for me. I grew up in a house that never had less than 2 cats at a time (once, both had large litters of kittens and we had about a dozen of the little furballs!) I love cats. I never had issues with them until after I turned 30. Suddenly, I was no longer sleeping thanks to sneezing/runny nose fits every 2-3 hours during the night, and was just miserable most of the time. After seeing an allergist, we discovered I had DEVELOPED an allergy to cats :( A very sad day, indeed. We still have our cat, naturally, but I’m currently taking weekly allergy shots to help battle the wheezies and the sneezies. I also take 3 pills daily, and rely on claritin at least once a week as well. Haven’t tried the vinegar in the wash, but will definitely give it a try! Thanks for the tips. Anything that can help is definitely appreciated! Living with cats for over 30 years only to develop a freaking allergy to them was just the worst!
