I was asked if I would like to get on mood stabilizers but I declined. I am now having spells where it seems like I am tearing up to crying over every little thing. I was wondering...

( this isn’t a conversation on trans people, so pls don’t derail because im talking about bio women) I personally feel like a lot of fonts ( and people IRL in general) conflate being...

If black families/communities of yesteryear didn't do anything else, they could keep a secret. In this age of anything goes and everything is told on multiple social media platforms, it seems unbelievable that previous generations were oftentimes just as messy and scandalous it simply wasn't known or discussed. That's somewhat true. Previous...

So I'm coming to terms with the fact I don't really fully believe in God right now, and never have. I've tried and even thought I was saved at one point but I guess I imagined it. I fear I don't have the capacity to truly believe in anything, right now I'm looking into spirituality and lean towards a different type of God/Source but I'm plagued...

I was talking to my cousin about this who lives in expensive LA. She’s from the south originally and she was saying that while she would love to own a home, nothing beats living by the water and beautiful nature. She said she is fine if it never happens and thinks she’s staying in Cali for the long run. I feel her as we thought about moving...

Anyone map out their family tree successfully? I am trying and it's coming together but the huge gaps of time and no records to provide at least some narrative is frustrating. I am talking 20-60 year gaps and migrations from one state to another for seeming no rhyme or reason. Found a probable ancestor in 1820s but nothing related to the...

Pretty much the above question. I have thought a lot about my portfolio, but have not given much thought to what I am going to do for health insurance in retirement. I looked into my job, and unfortunately, they do not seem to offer anything for folks into retirement, so I am on my own with that. How have you all tackled it? What do you plan...

My family friend has been desperately trying to reconnect with his 3 girls after a bitter divorce in the 90s. He told me he had an old number for the eldest girl and texts her every year on her birthday. He gets no response. I found all three girls on Facebook. Should I reach out and give them their fathers number? I’m trying...

I tried to make some peanut butter cookie brownies. I'm pretty sure I was supposed to layer it, like one layer cookie mix and then the next layer is brownie mixer, etc. But I just poured the chocolate in first and then the pb mix on top. It's not "pretty" because the chocolate surfaced during the baking process but it is delicious...
