Wife: OMG we got an invitation to Rachel's wedding!

Satan's Bunny Slippers: And women wonder why a large portion of the population think know they are crazy.




Women And Prescription Drugs: One In Four Takes Mental Health Meds

One of the more startling statistics in the report, which analyzed prescription claims data from 2.5 million insured Americans from 2001 to 2010, is that one in four women is dispensed medication for a mental health condition, compared to just 15 percent of men.

Antidepressant use especially is high among women, up 29 percent since 2001, the report showed, and anti-anxiety meds are used by women at almost twice the rate seen among men. In 2010, 11 percent of middle-aged women were on an anti-anxiety medication, while only 5.7 percent of men that age were. There's also a gender shift when it comes to the use of drugs for ADHD in adulthood: although the disorder is thought to afflict primarily young boys, slightly more women use ADHD medications as adults than men.

There is a lot of cra-cra in this article.  I don't mind someone embracing the single lifestyle and celebrating it.  But what she did was akin to a sterile woman walking around with a doll, constantly trying to nurse it.

And the dude who feels like his only options are to cower away from her or show up in full armor, yeah, that's stable.

Ask yourself this - going by the (stock) photo, she's attractive, young, and if the clearly bogus story is to be believed as written, apparently can afford to throw a lavish, pointless "wedding." So, why is she single? Always ask yourself this question.

The story's a long, pointless advertisement for a wedding planner, nothing more.
 
2013-10-17 10:21:34 AM  
After rereading the story and looking at her picture I agree that it's definitely a publicity stunt. She has looks and money.

Couldn't possibly be that women are *gasp* different from men and are treated differently than men, and are thrown medication instead of having a way to actually deal with the underlying causal issues?

Ugh, he could be a twin of a guy I have to be in meetings with fairly regularly.  This is going to be interesting now that I will forever picture him in a chain mail hat.....

A former coworker of mine was planning her future wedding, she had the magazines out all the time pouring through them cutting out pictures of stuff she liked. She was online looking at venues to hold the wedding and on weekends she would visit some of these places. She had everything except the guy. She would go on about her list of the qualities her man. If a man like the one she had dreamed up existed he would have been snatched up quick or he was a Disney character.

Women And Prescription Drugs: One In Four Takes Mental Health Meds

One of the more startling statistics in the report, which analyzed prescription claims data from 2.5 million insured Americans from 2001 to 2010, is that one in four women is dispensed medication for a mental health condition, compared to just 15 percent of men.

Antidepressant use especially is high among women, up 29 percent since 2001, the report showed, and anti-anxiety meds are used by women at almost twice the rate seen among men. In 2010, 11 percent of middle-aged women were on an anti-anxiety medication, while only 5.7 percent of men that age were. There's also a gender shift when it comes to the use of drugs for ADHD in adulthood: although the disorder is thought to afflict primarily young boys, slightly more women use ADHD medications as adults than men.

You've come a long way, baby.

darwinpolice: pivazena: Couldn't possibly be that women are *gasp* different from men and are treated differently than men, and are thrown medication instead of having a way to actually deal with the underlying causal issues?

Naw, fark that.  biatches be crazy.

And maybe, JUST MAYBE, men are shamed more for being open about depression and other mental issues and so avoid going to doctors, let alone getting medical treatment for their problem.

don't know if she was hot.  All the photos in the article were stock photos.

So, her only life goal is to get married, and she's so upset that she isn't married by THIRTY? She didn't need to throw herself a wedding, she needed to throw herself into a mental institution. It reminds me of the people whose only life goal is to breed.

Methinks she has seen this movie too many times.

All of the guests brought gifts. She had the big cake but on the cake she just had a bride figurine. It was everything except the actual ceremony."...

"She made it really fun," Ms McCawley said.

"She knew it was a bit crazy but she thought 'well instead of having a 30th why not do this and invite all of my friends?'...

Well, its certainly the most unique 30th b-day party I've heard of this year.

/my sis-in-law is throwing my bro a ($100 a couple) 'surprise' party but he already knows all about it, plus he only got her to do it because he whined that he'd 'never had one'. Of course he's -never- bothered to organize a surprise party for anyone else.
So all-in-all I'd rather go to this crazy bride party than his b/c she was upfront about everything.

most people don't live in sitcoms.  most people never have or throw or attend a "surprise" party.  much like the gigantic house party, those mostly only exist on film.

Gigantic house parties happened fairly regularly in college. I've been to a surprise party too although it was pretty boring. I suspect surprise parties are only really fun for for that group of people who end the party at 9 because they're volunteering at their church in the morning.

Literally Addicted: tillerman35: The Third Man: And this story hasn't been made into a rom-com yet why?  Every single woman over 30 would watch this movie about 5 times in the theaters and then about 100 times when it came on Lifetime.

Not just single women.  I did not know it was possible to wear out a DVD until my lovely and beautiful wife (who couldn't possibly know my Fark handle, uh, right Honey?) got a copy of Bride and Prejudice.

Don't speak for this single woman, please.  Rom-coms make me want to throw up.


Please tell me it's only the majority of Rom Coms from the past 30 years, as there are some pretty awesome Rom Coms from 1930 to 1970. Some Like it Hot is one of the funniest films of all time, and I would argue that it's a Rom Com. Design for Living is also pretty awesome too, and that was from the 1930s. Pierrot le fou is also a demented rom com of sorts too.

/single woman who doesn't lump all rom coms together, and thinks the classic films are awesome
//also, one could argue that Disney films and Despicable Me 2 are rom coms, and those movies are entertaining

Animation doesn't count as Rom Com, nor does anything made before 1979. Those are silver screens, and yes they are awesome. 
1980- onward? MOre likely.
Anything with insipid writing? Definitely.
Pacific RIm? Too close for comfort. But then again, I root for C'thulu. <.<

All the girls I know who were like this wound up settling when the call of the uterus became too great. I'm not shocked that their relationships suck these days if they even still exist, I just feel bad for the kids.
