Please ask your friend about her culture and religion. Many different religions have traditions and beliefs around menstruation and what might be odd to us is accepted tradition in their faith. I grew up near an Orthodox Jewish community and there is a set of rules and laws surrounding family purity. Learn from your friend. Dad may still be a nut case.

My mom took my dad to the hospital with some mild chest pains. At the hospital, his blood pressure was fine, the ekg was normal, and his blood work showed nothing. They want to keep him overnight for observation adn they want to do a stress test in the morning. What should he expect? Should I be even more worried? I guess it is a good sign that his blood work showed nothing. is it? Im sorry, but I am just scared.

What could this be? It only tends to happen when I have alot of stress on my heart. For example : I hardly got any sleep today, my dad got rushed to the hospital, my mom caused my anxiety to sky rocket etc. I went to lay down after talking to my dad in the hospital, and my heart started racing really fast, but I wasn t breathing hard or anything. Is this serious? Or only because of Anxiety? Please help, I m really worried.
