Hello everyone, Gonna try to be as honest as possible so that I get better advice. I'd like insight, and not sympathy. (I mean, sympathy is nice, but truth first.) So, for the past few years, my life has not been ideal, I've moved a lot, had a lot of abusive jobs, and been super isolated. I've been trying to scrape my way out of it, but it's been difficult, and I recently reached a bad, dangerous point with my anxiety. I think I'm only now starting to get out of it. Through all of this, I had a very kind friend who was supportive and tried to help me through it. I didn't view her aid, or her sympathetic ear as out of the norm. I thought she was just being a friend...but I realize how, and this is in her own words, that she was feeling like a counselor, especially since I was not making fast improvement. [more inside]

Asking for a friend: My friend is currently standing next to me eating Siggi's Icelandic Style Strawberry Yogurt, which might have expired two months ago. Or a month ago, if we optimistically assume the European date format (03/04/2016). Will he die or will he be okay? How long does yogurt last past expiry date? Does it matter that it supposedly have no preservatives? Does anyone know if the dates printed on the Siggi's yogurt cups are American or European format?

Prepared beef kabob from supermarket. Has been in refrigerator, uncovered since removing from package yesterday, and was purchased yesterday. I'm assuming this would be fine to grill up in a few hours for lunch, but would there be any reason not to?
I hate weekends. It's a struggle to get myself to leave the house on Saturdays and Sundays; I just want to hide under a blanket all day.

My go-to OTC allergy med isn't working well, and my ragweed/pollen allergies are going crazy. I went to the allergist and she gave me a nasal spray to try, then said I could use allergy shots in the fall. I told her that I would like to try them right away (she said they have a chance of eliminating allergies, which would be a miracle!), but she doesn't want to use them yet. The nasal spray doesn't seem to be working. Should I force the issue, or is she right to be cautious? [more inside]
I have this suede Australian outback hat that I bought at a garage sale a few weeks ago, for $6. I didn't examine it closely at the time, but it reeks of mold and must, leather small, and saddlesoap from a stab at self cleaning. Can I dry clean it? Here's pictures of the hat in question: My Poor Hat, two pics of it. It's a Walkabout brand Australian hat, size small. [more inside]

bullet points: - i recently had to get an i phone 5 for work at a new job. - i backed up the previous iphone 4 to i cloud. - when i re-entered i cloud, it said the backup is incomplete. - i thought i had changed my apple id username, but i have only been able to use the old id so obviously i must have done it incorrectly - i cannot sync my old contacts and photos to my new i phone. - i assume all the contacts are on the old sim, but it doesnt fit a 5. - i probably dont have access to the old handset. - i might be able to use my girlfriends handset, but not reset it. - i want the photos and contacts. i am starting to really hate apple. how do i do it - is there a way or have i lost all my contacts?

Huge jackpot lotteries in the USA, like Powerball and Mega Millions, offer the jackpot as either an annuity for the total amount of the prize, or a lump sum for a reduced amount. It seems that the vast majority of the winners pick the lump sum over the annuity. Which to me just makes no sense at all. [more inside]

I gave my boyfriend a surprise gift of a list of one hundred things I loved about him for valentines day. He found it after I left his house and called to say it was the most thoughtful thing anyone had ever done for him. I don't want to be the first to say "I love you" because I never have with any of my previous relationships and prefer a guy say those words first, but upon further reflection I am wondering if the list would count as the inadvertent equivalent of saying those three heavy words.

Songfilter: There was a song that I was listening on the radio a while back that I'd like to listen to again but my google-fu is failing me. The song is a little slow with light female vocals, and one of the lines in the chorus was or sounded like "I assume, I assume, I assume." Does this ring a bell to anyone?
