Depressed & need inspiration.

I am a single mother, down in the dumps and looking for mefites for a lightbulb or maybe just a bone.

How do I stop monitoring people's emotions constantly?

I am constantly monitoring other people's tone, actions, facial expressions, etc. for signs of anger, frustration, irritation, etc. I am not conscious of it until something happens, and then I tense up, feel some adrenaline hit, and generally become really conscious of it until the situation is resolved. How do I reduce this impulse? [more inside]

Sexual ethics: the giving of blowjobs

I'm a woman in a longterm committed relationship, and I love sex. Over the years, I've started to feel that I don't get anything out of giving my partner blowjobs, and the unfairness bothers me. Yet not being excited by giving it or wanting to give one also makes me feel guilty, like I'm not being a good partner or being the stereotypical woman who hates blowjobs, which frustrates me.

Then I'll end up gaining a few pounds and needing to start all over. [more inside]
