    I'm taking a narcotic that is essentially vicodin, but the ratio of tylenol to narcotic is altered to have more narcotic, less tylenol. Either way, it's vicodin more or less.

    But my question is, could a side effect be sound sensitivity? I've been taking it for over a week, and this entire week, especially after every pill, everything seems very very loud and hurts my ears. It's overwhelming.

    I'm just curious if this a normal thing? It's not a huge deal, but I'm interested to know.

    The Rumor:
    Not using their codes for what? I'll probably give you mine but I'm not sure what you mean.
    you're able to get five free copies of your book this year sent to you if you won NaNoWriMo, but with my current monetary situation, i'm not able to do what i did last year and buy books, then sell them to whoever wanted one in person, which is what i want to do again this year tehe so the codes help ridiculously.

    My old laptop crashed and, because I'm an idiot, I hadn't backed up any of the music I had on there. I know I can re-download the music I bought from iTunes onto my new laptop for free but I was wondering if there was any way I could transfer the other music which I got off my CD's from my iPod to the laptop? I'm too lazy to rip them all again.
    It's okay if it's impossible as I accepted the loss of my music long ago but... a small part of me still hopes. XD

    If you know the name of the drug you're taking, you can look up its side-effects and contra-indications on http://www.drugs.com/, otherwise heightened sensory sensitivity is fairly common when you're in pain.

    I've had two moles (I think that's what they are) on my scalp since I can remember. One is about the size on the end of a pencil eraser and is shiny white, smooth, round, and raised. The other is wider--but not was raised--and is red (but this may be due to me picking at it somewhat). My father has had skin cancer, as has my grandfather. I'm young, though, and don't tan and I do not live in a climate where the sun is blistering hot or anything. They don't hurt, and I don't even notice them if I'm not fixated on them. I've shown them to my mother and my grandfather and they said that they don't look cancerous or like anything I should be worried about since they've been there since birth. Though, I'm still fairly worried.
    Do any of you have any advice or anything to offer? It's greatly appreciated.

    I had two small moles at the side of my head (just above the top of my ear) for as long as I can remember. When I finally got annoyed enough by them, I went to a dermatologist to have them removed (last year). Very simple procedure - they numbed the spot then sliced it off and did a biopsy to make sure it wasn't cancerous.

    So, I'd suggest going to a dermatologist if possible (if you have insurance that will cover it). You can also ask your general doctor to have a look - he/she should at least be able to tell you if you need to have it checked out by a dermatologist or if it's fine.

    Oh, I never registered for the code and now it seems to be too late. Otherwise I totally would, sorry. :[

    This is odd, but I'm interested in opinions-

    Would you feel bad/odd if you have the love of your life; your other half, the one you're going to marry, and couldn't live without- but had an explicit sex dream about a friend of yours?

    In potions? Just click on your wand (it'll be lying on the right hand side of the table - it can be a bit hard to see), and pull it up a bit, it'll do the rest.

    No, I wouldn't feel bad. To me it just means that you find your friend attractive. If I acted on the feelings I'd feel bad, but otherwise no.

    I wouldn't feel bad exactly, I'd feel startled. I had a dream like this before, and upon waking I had a burning feeling of regret in my stomach. It made me realise that I'd be lost without my boyfried. I do really think he's the one.

    Questions
    Does anyone else suffer from breakouts on their face closer to their period? I'm due mine on Thursday/Friday, and alread my chin has gone crazy! Any tips?

    ^Oh, hell yeah. My face is porcelain the majority of the time, but around my period it breaks out moderately.

    Well, I've read that having dreams about having sex with someone is often your brains way of "rewarding" that person, so it might not necessary mean you're attracted to that person, just that you like them a lot (apparently sometimes people have a dream about having sex with family members and freak out, but it's really just subconscious-speak for "hey you're cool.") So...I guess I'd still feel odd, but not bad? But I've never had a sex dream and don't anticipate falling in love / getting married, so. XD

    Breaking out during your period is super common; hormone fluctuations can be a big factor behind acne (that's why people tend to break out a lot in their pubescent years). Going on the pill is meant to fix that since it regulates your hormones, but if you can't/don't want to do that, then you're left with your standard acne-treatment options – I know lots of people swear by benzoyl peroxide, it's the only thing over-the-counter that kills the actual bacteria (although it stains fabric and it can be an irritant if you have sensitive skin). Oh, perhaps you could arrange your laundry schedule so you're sure to wash your sheets a few days before your period? It might even be worth it to change your pillowcase or lay a clean towel over it every night. I mean if you think about it, if you sleep on your side/stomach you're basically pressing your face into this piece of fabric for eight hours, so it definitely helps if it's as clean as possible. XD

    I wouldn't. I had this exact situation happen. It's a dream I can't control, not a drunken night in a club you're trying to forget. I mean, I felt a little odd 'cause I was just like 'cannot unsee', but that was it.

    No. I've had sexual dreams about my step-dad, my teacher I can't stand, two of my female friends who are 100% straight and I'd never even kiss, plus celebrities I genuinely don't find attractive or anything. It's a dream and you can't help it. It's not fantasies or wants. It's just a dream.
