    Health fact: an inverted nipple, if it's not normally inverted, can be a sign of breast cancer. If you notice one, call your clinic and ask if they think you should get it checked out (the answer will most likely be yes). This goes for everyone, males females and intersex.

    I feel exactly like Barb. No matter the scenario, I have a sort of, "what if I did this", or "what if they did this to me/themselves" or "what if I did something to this person". It's always morbid as well. And it's really quite awful. Something in me just thinks like that. Now, I'll never ever act on those thoughts, but they're always there, and they're really quite frightening.

    Thanks to Lindsay, I now have a new potential coping mechanism. I've had a fear of needles since around 2013 when I went to the ER and had 3 doctors poke and prod at my inner arm trying (and failing) to draw blood because I have tiny veins. Now I panic at the thought of getting blood drawn and everybody that needs to just uses my hand... it's literally the worst place for a needle.

    Lindsey, I feel. Having medical problems recently, so almost every time I go to the doctor, I have to get blood drawn. Had about 20 vials drawn, about 6 the size you described, 8 of the medium ones, and 6 of them of the smaller size. Was not a fun time

    my irrational fear is so dumb. I hate feeling my own pulse or veins. I don't like to touch parts of my body like my wrists,top of feet or temples and I hate when's guys are really vascular. I haven't heard of a name for this so I hope someone can relate with this

    Arryn's fear is not that irrational nor uncommon.  It's called the uncanny valley.  When the human likeness of an inhuman object crosses a certain threshold, it becomes eerie and repulsive.

    I was super excited to see the wonderful voice actresses of RWBY  blake Such a great episode 
    Some guests that I think would be interesting to have on here would be Jeff Williams & Casey Lee Williams 

    What they do with the RWBY soundtrack team is really inspiring, it would be interesting to hear about how they fell in love with their craft & their life in general

    I'm similar in the belly button thing.  For some reason if anyone gets anywhere near my belly button I freak out because it is the most uncomfortable feeling I could ever have.  I don't judge you Lindsey xD

    With the talk about forums and apps to find people with like interest whether for friendship or other, I wonder why this site is lacking a feature to find others in your area. I know there are groups, but its still rather difficult to do a radius search. Now on to Still Open!

    My level of joy (aka high pitched screaming) at 2am was too much for the neighbors dog outside. it was great. Also Kara's the best. Also Lindsay and Barbara having a similar fear of belly buttons is weird like they're related or something

    The fear of dying is known as thanatophobia

    Also, in terms of where everything is in your body - from front to back it goes: Bladder, Uterus, Colon. If you think about it, it correlates to external anatomy, so it's pretty easy to remember. Of course, everything is pretty densely packed, so you have the end of the small intestine and the start of the large intestine 'squished' in above the bladder. But that's the basics.


    For men it's similar, but no uterus.

    The fear of deep water is technically 'bathophobia' but that's just a name. What Kara is feeling is probably closer to something like agoraphobia, which is anxiety induced by feeling unable to escape from your environment (often seen by people with severe anxiety in public places like shopping malls). Not the usual use of the term, but it seems very applicable.

    The fear of belly buttons is called Omphalophobia! I designed a dust cover for a book about Omphalophobia. People with this fear are also scared of their umbilical cord being still attached and getting pulled out.

    About the belly button thing, well my mom had surgery where they had to open her up and the belly button was in the path of the incision, well a year after the surgery she had a hernia and so she had a part of an internal organ peek out a bit. So it does happen but it takes a series of events to happen.

    On conventions, I can attest, behind the scenes, it's damned insane. Years working behind the scenes gives you a good idea of the chaos behind the curtain.

    I'm kind of like Lindsay but I have a fear of dying in my sleep- it's really weird and I don't even know why I have it. Like 5 out of 7 nights I'll go to bed and be like, 'If I fall asleep right now I'm going to die- 100%'. It's some Day 5 shit and then I spend 20 minutes convincing myself I'm fine and then I am but it's just odd.
