8 Ways To Survive A Long Distance Relationship

“According to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Communication, people in long-distance relationships were more likely to share meaningful thoughts and feelings with their partners than those who were not.” ~ Brittany Wong, Huffington Post

Indeed, some research does show that individuals in long-distance relationships may enjoy certain advantages over those who are not. Guess there is some truth to the whole “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” thing!

That said, the distance between couples can produce some challenges.

In this article, we’re going to discuss 8 ways to successfully overcome the challenges of long distance relationships. We’ll also quote a few people who’ve dealt with these problems – and defeated them by using these tips!

Let’s get started!

Here are 8 ways to survive a long distance relationship:

1. Keep in touch

This first one is a bit obvious but nonetheless important.

You and your partner do not have the luxury of face-to-face interaction, so it’s essential that some kind of communication schedule is established. Call, text, or – even better – video chat!

One man shares his story:

“My wife and I had to do the long distance thing twice in our relationship. When we first met she lived about an hour away in San Jose and I lived in San Francisco…We learned that you have to call and text each other during the day and share what’s going on.”

2. Use video chat

While Skype won’t replace the feeling of having your partner close, it’s probably the next best thing. Many couples who must endure the inevitable difficulties of a long-term relationship make it a priority to have regular Skype dates.

“It’s really essential that you and your partner have a schedule for when you talk … but texting is not enough to keep a relationship going. To maintain a strong relationship, you need to talk on the phone, but preferably something like Skype as often as you can.”

3. Remember the big picture

The long-distance thing won’t last forever, and it’s important that both individuals remind themselves of such. We’re wired for immediate gratification, especially when it comes to the person we love.

“…My partner and I met in university and had been together for about three and a half years before he had to leave (for) his Master’s degree. We were apart for about two years. We had to constantly remind ourselves that the distance was for a short while and as we really wanted to be together, we had to make it work.”

4. Remember to celebrate

When two people are apart for an extended period of time, one or both people will reach certain milestones in life (promotion, pay raise, individual goals, etc.). Celebrating each other’s victories can bring your relationship some morale by sharing intimate moments.

“(My husband) left for the Navy, and then we started dating…Right after we became engaged, he was deployed overseas for a year. What we learned is this: Celebrate everything, even if you can’t be together in person. Life is too short not to and that’s especially true when you’re in a long-distance relationship.”

5. Temper visiting expectations

If you’re in a long-distance relationship, the chances are that you’ll be able to visit your partner on occasion. It’s easy to anticipate that every visit will be heavenly – and hopefully, it is. Nonetheless, no relationship is perfect. Problems may or may not arise – and it’s important to remember this point.

“There’s so much pressure with visits…Some trips will be full of great memories and carefree times, and (others) will be full of fighting over big or small issues and that’s okay!”

6. Remember to compliment each other

We all love when our partner gives us a well-timed compliment. Without much face time, it’s easy to “forget” what you like about your sweetheart because they’re not there to remind us. (On that note, make sure to keep plenty of pictures and reminders of the person around!)

Compliments here and there go a long way. “I love your smile.” “I miss your great laugh!” “You’re so beautiful.” “You always make my day.”

7. Be honest

Things are never entirely okay all of the time. Many of us feel some added pressure to emphasize the sense everything is fine – particularly when we’re away from our partner.

This is a mistake.

None of us want our partner to worry. However, it’s healthy that you are both open and honest with each other despite the distance between you.

We’re not meant to allow unresolved inner conflicts to dwell; eventually, these conflicts will come to the surface – which is why it’s so important to be honest consistently.

8. Trust one another

It goes without saying that trust is the backbone of any relationship. When we’re apart from our life partner, it’s even more critical that we assure ourselves of their trustworthiness.

If possible, attempt to resolve any underlying trust issues before your partner leaves. In fact, try to fix anything that is causing a reasonable degree of uncertainty. It’s much better to address these things while your partner is still in your presence!

How To Trust Someone After You’ve Been Broken

22310475_10154931857317371_8670945786428502106_n

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” – Maya Angelou

They say it takes a while to build trust, but only one moment to break it, and most of us know how true that statement is. Most of us have probably been betrayed and hurt before by someone we thought we could trust with our lives, and it makes you wonder why you ever put your trust in them to begin with.

However, shutting ourselves off from people only makes us bitter, isolated, and lonely, which can do even greater damage than attempting to trust someone again. It might be hard in the beginning, especially if you’ve just gotten out of a broken or abusive relationship, but with the tips below, we hope that you can open your heart once again.

Here’s How To Trust Again After Getting Hurt

1. Understand that people make mistakes.

Now, this doesn’t excuse them from hurting you, but you have to realize that humans have complex emotions and thoughts, and no one is perfect. Maybe the person didn’t mean to hurt you, and didn’t realize the consequences of their actions until it was too late. Even if the relationship or friendship ended, perhaps it was for the best, and you can decide to remain grateful for the lessons and memories rather than close yourself off from future relationships.

Try to see things from the person’s perspective, and maybe you can gain some new insight on the pain that will allow you to forgive the person in time.

2. Don’t assume everyone is the same.

Maybe you just got out of a relationship with someone who betrayed you, and therefore have a skewed opinion of what other people are like. This could hinder you from forming relationships with others, but don’t allow it to. Remember to use your logical brain and keep an open mind when it comes to meeting others. Not everyone is out to hurt you, and not everyone will betray your trust. There are good people out there, but you’ll never cross their path if you don’t even get out on the road to find them.

3. Forgive yourself.

You might be wondering, “Well, what the heck did I do wrong?! I was the victim here!” This is totally understandable, but you might also beat yourself up half the time about what happened. Maybe you partially blame yourself for how the situation unfolded, and wish you could go back in time to do things differently. To truly move on and trust others again, you have to forgive yourself, too. Realize that hurt people hurt other people, and that you had no control over how that person would treat you.

4. Use your gut instincts.

Not everyone in the world deserves your trust, so you have to listen to your gut to figure out who is worth giving it to. Learn from your past relationships so that you can avoid the same situation before you get too heavily invested in someone, and if they give you a reason to have doubts, don’t be afraid to bring it up with them. After all, trust is earned, not given, so if they can’t pay their dues, so to speak, then they don’t deserve your time, effort, and trust.

If something feels off about someone, then it probably is. Pay attention to how you feel when you’re around the person; if you feel at ease and comfortable, then maybe try opening up little by little. If you feel uptight and cautious around the person, then chances are, you won’t be able to trust them in the long run.

5. Leave the past where it belongs.

If you bring the past with you wherever you go, it will always haunt you and stir up bad memories. In order to move on and learn to trust again, you have to leave the past behind you and accept that you can’t change it. All you can do is learn from it, and hope to meet better people that will appreciate and cherish your feelings and not take advantage of you. Dragging the past with you will only weigh you down and make it that much harder to develop solid relationships with good people.

You might feel like you’ll never trust again, but you can learn to open your heart and allow yourself to be vulnerable after you’ve given yourself time. Take things slowly and keep your guard up in the beginning if you have to, but also know when to knock down the walls that separate you from others. Take a chance on people that you have a good feeling about, because you can only get over your past once you embrace the future and turn the pain into power.

Acetaminophen use in pregnancy linked to ADHD in study, but no cause is proven

Acetaminophen use in pregnancy linked to ADHD in study, but no cause is proven

WATCH Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy Linked to Childhood Behavioral Problems, Study Finds

A new study associates the long-term use of acetaminophen, the active ingredient in over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol, during pregnancy with the risk that the children born from those pregnancies could develop attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But many in the medical community say the study, published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, should be taken in stride.

For expecting mothers with pain or fever during pregnancy, acetaminophen has long been the pain reliever of choice. In the U.S., about 65 to 70 percent of pregnant American women say they take acetaminophen-containing products during pregnancy, according to the CDC. Ibuprofen, the other most popular analgesic, isn't recommended in the latter months of pregnancy because of the risk it could harm the fetus.

“Acetaminophen has been used widely in pregnancy,” Dr. Alison Cahill, chief of Maternal-Fetal-Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, told ABC News. “It’s always important to ask what we know and what we might need to know about the safety of prescription and non-prescription medications in pregnancy.”

Over-the-counter medications containing acetaminophen do not require a prescription, so there’s little control over how much people take at once or how they take it.

White pills and a plastic prescription pill container.

And few studies have been done about how drugs taken during pregnancy can affect babies and fetuses; doctors know it is unethical to design a study that hands medications to pregnant women and tells them to take it as part of a trial, particularly if part of what they’re asking is if that the medication could be harmful to the child.

Weighing the risks of antibiotics in early pregnancy

But, research is needed. And because of the large number of women who use acetaminophen during pregnancy, researchers in Norway decided to study the possible risks to the children, looking back at medical records, as well as information from mothers and fathers.

They analyzed a registry of 112,973 children born between 1999 and 2009, including more than 95,000 mothers and 75,000 fathers in Norway. The registry, compiled by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, used questionnaires given to mothers and fathers during the pregnancy period at multiple time points that asked about their medication use.

The study calculated how many of the children born from those pregnancies were diagnosed with ADHD by searching Norway’s national electronic medical records.

Researchers took risks factors that could also have contributed to ADHD diagnosis into account in the study. They controlled for a number of different possibilities, symptoms of ADHD, depression in the mother, the amount of acetaminophen the mother was using before getting pregnant and the reason she gave for using acetaminophen.

The results of their analysis showed that children of pregnant mothers who used acetaminophen for 29 days total, or more, during the pregnancy were associated with a 220 percent increased risk of ADHD.

Some previous studies have also shown an association between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and ADHD. But the results have not been consistent.

Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy Linked to Childhood Behavioral Problems, Study Finds

This study, like many others, had a number of issues that limited what researchers and doctors can take away about any connection between ADHD and taking acetaminophen during pregnancy.

“It’s very challenging to do this sort of work,” said Cahill. “It’s unfortunate that this study is not precise enough to draw any conclusions.”

One problem is that how much acetaminophen was used relied on the parents’ self-reporting. The researchers were only able to collect information on the number of days mothers believed they had taken acetaminophen-containing products in their surveys. The study does not account for how many pills, or the total dosage, the mother took in a single day – which is a very important gauge of whether the medicine was used according to directions – and assumed her memory of when and how much she took was accurate.

Since providers can only diagnose ADHD through behavior, since there's no medical test for it, doctors may vary in how — and if — they diagnose ADHD. The authors acknowledge that the diagnosis of ADHD was not confirmed in a laboratory, but were simply noted in electronic medical records.

Short-term use of acetaminophen in pregnancy – meaning fewer than 29 total days in this study — did not show an association with the development of ADHD.

In fact, if the mother used acetaminophen for fewer than eight days, the opposite result appeared to be true: the child had a lower risk of ADHD.

“If the hypothesis is that acetaminophen causes ADHD, but at some level it’s protective, then it really doesn’t make any biological sense,” said Cahill. If the hypothesis were true, investigators would likely have found a dose response.

And another discovery of the study, which cannot yet be explained: the father’s use of acetaminophen in the six months before the pregnancy independently increased the risk of developing ADHD by just over 200 percent.

Younger Kids in Their Grade More Likely to Get ADHD Diagnosis, Study Finds

While it is possible that acetaminophen use alters sperm, such as the authors suggest in their paper, it is also possible that a dad's use might mean that parents have their won higher risk for ADHD, “may be more bothered by pain theoretically…and therefore may take more acetaminophen,” Dr. Mark Wolraich, a pediatrician and chief of the Section of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center, told ABC News.

Many experts caution that it's too early to ask pregnant women to change their behavior based on the findings of this study, including OB/GYN groups.

“This latest study shows no clear evidence that proves a direct relationship between the use of acetaminophen and developmental issues in children,” Dr. Hal Lawrence, executive vice president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, told ABC News. “Physicians should not change clinical practice until definitive prospective research is done and, most importantly, patients should not be frightened away from the many benefits of acetaminophen.”

Cahill expresses similar concerns.

“There is an old notion that it is not safe for patients to take the medications that they need during pregnancy,” she said, adding that patients should work with their doctors and specialists to continue treating any medical conditions during pregnancy.

Wolraich suggests similarly that the current findings, “are not strong enough to cause a major warning.”

“This study identifies a possible association. From an association, you can’t necessarily infer a causal relation,” he said. “There may be a third factor that causes the relation to go in either direction."

Therefore, more research is needed before pregnant mothers would be advised to stop or change their usage of acetaminophen products.

“Acetaminophen is generally indicated for pain or temperature,” Wolraich said. “It tends not to be a medication that is essential for taking. To my knowledge, things like low-grade fever are not harmful to the fetus, so if the medication is not essential, one could err on the side of not taking it.”

Catalan independence: Spain high court summons dismissed leader

Catalan independence: Spain high court summons dismissed leader

Media playback is unsupported on your device
Media captionCarles Puigdemont: Spain has a 'democratic deficit'

Spain's high court has summoned sacked Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont and 13 other members of his dismissed government to appear later this week.

It also gave them three days to pay a deposit of €6.2m ($7.2m) to cover potential liabilities.

The summons comes after Spain's chief prosecutor on Monday said he would press charges including rebellion.

Mr Puigdemont is in Belgium with several former ministers. He earlier said he was not there to seek asylum.

Carles Puigdemont triggered a crisis in Spain by holding an independence referendum in early October in the semi-autonomous region despite Madrid's opposition and the Constitutional Court declaring the vote illegal.

Spain's central government has now taken direct control of Catalonia.

Mr Puigdemont turned up in Brussels on Monday as Spanish Attorney-General José Manuel Maza called for Catalan leaders to face charges of rebellion, sedition and misuse of public funds.

  • Catalonia crisis in 300 words
  • Madrid's enforcer for Catalonia
  • What next for Spain?

The Audiencia National has now summoned the sacked Catalan officials – who are yet to be formally charged – to testify on Thursday and Friday. If they do not appear, prosecutors could order their arrest.

Meanwhile, the speaker of Catalan's dissolved parliament Carme Forcadell and other former lawmakers have been summoned to the Supreme Court because they still have parliamentary immunity.

Mr Puigdemont earlier said he would return to Spain if guaranteed a fair hearing.

Several of Mr Puigdemont's former colleagues who remain inside the country may decide to accept the summons and appear in court, reports the BBC's James Reynolds from Barcelona.

Prosecutors' arguments against the group were "serious, rational and logical", Judge Carmen Lamela said in a ruling, according to the AFP news agency.

The charge of rebellion carries a maximum 30-year jail term.

Upcoming election

Speaking at a press conference earlier on Tuesday, Mr Puigdemont said he was not trying to escape justice by travelling to Belgium but wanted to be able to speak freely.

His comments came as Spain's constitutional court suspended the declaration of independence made by the Catalan parliament on Friday.

Puigdemont: The man who wants to break up Spain

Mr Puigdemont also said he would accept the result of snap elections in Catalonia on 21 December, which were called by Spain's central government after it invoked Article 155 of the constitution, temporarily suspending the region's autonomy.

"I want a clear commitment from the state. Will the state respect the results that could give separatist forces a majority?" Mr Puigdemont asked reporters.

The Spanish government has previously said he is welcome to take part in the fresh polls.

In a separate development on Tuesday, Spain's Guardia Civil – a paramilitary force charged with police duties – raided the offices of the Catalan police force.

According to media reports, they searched eight offices for communications relating to the referendum on 1 October.

Katrina Evemy murder: Petition over Dylan Harries Facebook profile

Katrina Evemy murder: Petition over Dylan Harries Facebook profile

Image caption Miss Evemy's family said Harries' Facebook profile is a "constant reminder" of a monster

The family of a young mother have petitioned Facebook to have "all ties to her murderer" removed from the site.

Dylan Harries was jailed for life last month for the "merciless" killing of Katrina Evemy in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire.

Amanda Dewsnap said it made her angry to see her daughter in his "loving couple" profile picture and his status saying they were still in a relationship.

Facebook said it was investigating.

A spokesman from the social media site said they understood the "upsetting nature of the issue" and are looking into it "as a matter of urgency".

Harries stabbed Miss Evemy, 19, in front of her 22-month-old daughter at their home in Graig Avenue on 13 April.

He denied murder but was found guilty by a jury at Swansea Crown Court and was jailed for a minimum of 27 years.

Image caption Katrina Evemy died from stab wounds six days after the attack

Mrs Dewsnap said Harries' profile picture of the pair pops up whenever she goes on Facebook.

"It's devastating enough that she has been murdered by him but his picture shows he still has a hold on her," she said.

She said the family had contacted Facebook requesting the picture and relationship status be removed, but had received no response to date.

'Monster'

It has prompted a petition which has received almost 6,000 signatures.

It said: "His [Harries'] Facebook profile picture is a constant reminder of the monster still having power over his late victim that he cruelly stole from our lives."

Mrs Dewsnap said his sentence would allow him to "have another life when he got out" but her daughter was gone forever.

"No time would have been enough for him," she said.

"The whole family have been left devastated and we just don't know the effect it's going to have on Katrina's daughter."

A Perfectly Round Butt:

Here Are 15 WWE Superstars Who Really Need To Be Fired Before 2018

t1

The superstars of WWE are some well known wrestlers on the planet. WWE does not have the habit of hiring the scrubs, as the ones who they push at the top have something very special. It is a fine possibility that they may not perform well in the ring but there is something special about them that makes them cool among others. This company has a lot of great talent and many of them are hard to be ignored. Many of them are so impressive that it is not possible for everyone to be at the top position. Check out list of WWE superstars who need to be fired soon!

She was so frustrated over that she was all around the WWE RAW Women’s championship for approximately a year and others have been attaining many reigns with it. All this resulted in her leaving. Her wrestling style might not be up to the mark but she is someone that is much easy to be noticed.

He is one of the best performers and when you are looking for a guy who does his tasks well and soundly, Tye is your guy. The biggest problem might be that he is good at everything but he doesn’t scream WWE champion. He has a quite a good luck and performs excellent on the mic and in the ring. Though he is acting on WWE Smack Down Live to prove himself but many feel like it isn’t enough and that he must have stayed on NXT and won the title as well. It might be intelligent for him to get out of WWE while he have a fan following.

Unfortunately it did not work out well and many superstars got unhappy with the results. Dar would have to leave for indies to develop a bigger name and come back with the bang.

4. Heath Slater

Heath has been much liked star for many years but seems like he has not lived up to the expectations of his fans. He has won many tag team titles but is far away from winning single titles. Despite the demand of fans he has come up short each time. Many people he led became major champions, he is already liked by fans, all he need is an opportunity. He runs a wrestling training school now and train the future talent but he still deserves a bigger opportunity to do things in a better way.

5. Dana Brooke

Looking at Dana, a strong, athletic and independent woman is reflected from her personality. She was top female heel at WWE NXT at that time which ed to big matches but it also seems like she has to work a lot harder. Her wrestling style wasn’t that good, hence she was put aside Charlotte Flair to improve her out. She did try to do a better job but could not reach the requirements. It is a possibility that that she would leave wrestling permanently or will go to indies and would do things more efficiently.

6. Zack Ryder

People who create their own opportunities, Zack will be one of them. He was not getting any poplar on WWE, is when he started on You Tube and became the creator of True Long Island Story, a type of series that would display the character of Zack and his personality. Fans loved him from his videos and it was then, when WWE started featuring him more. Moments are quite slim for Ryder regardless of how good he performs.

7. Rusev and Lana

Rusev has been bestowed with WWE United States Champion many times. Everyone took a notice of him when he used to wrestle and of course everybody has set their eyes on Lana when she used to arrive in the arena. She being the hottest star of WWE superstars, much trouble was faced while booking her. They had the best combination of management and wrestling style, but WWE restricted to use them together. WWE would not want to lose them as they are much valuable to them. However, the refusal to see them together seems a bit shady which the indies would provide freedom in another case.

8. The Ascension

Victor and Konner became the longest reigning champions on WWE NXT for a brand. They had such impressive matches and characters that led them towards success. They are now relegated to Smack Down and it seems to be very heart wrecking that from being amazing they have gone to the level of being nothing special. They are not getting enough chances to prove themselves worthy at WWE but if they try tag divisions at indies they would be loved by their fans and could prove themselves efficiently.

9. Neville

Neville has been on hot news due to his statement for WWE, that they are not letting his character go in a right direction and he wants to let go. WWE took his and Austin Aries match from the DVD, Wrestle Mania 33, which costed him and Aries the spot which they had to pay for. WWE would never want to fire Neville for any reason but if he refuses to work for the, they would probably cut him. Neville became the star even before he arrived at WWE.

10. TJP

????The world was on fire and no one could save me but you…strange what desire will make foolish people do..???? #WWE #RAW #205Live #TJP #CruiserGreat #FilAmFlash #ForeverChamp #NerdLife

A post shared by TJ Perkins (@megatjp) on

He was the first ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion of this era. He mostly work against the guys who are much bigger than him, which technically doesn’t makes him a cruiserweight performer. WWE did the best thing to put him on NXT to show he was much worthy of such treatment. He has fallen back and seems like once everyone has to taste the bitterness of loosing something. A man needs some recognition in order to prove themselves in front of their fans. TJP needs to be let go if he is not paid enough for the talent he encompass.

11. Darren Young

What a great evening. I just want to thank @nylatinofilmfestival for having me at the premiere of #saturdaychurchmovie at #CinepolisChelsea. SATURDAY CHURCH tells the story of a shy 14-year-old Ulysses, who finds himself coping with new responsibilities as "man of the house" after the death of his father. Living alongside his mother, younger brother, and conservative aunt. Ulysses is also struggling with questions about his gender identity. He finds an escape by creating a world of fantasy filled with dance and music. Ulysses must find the courage to be who he truly is, all while risking losing those he cares about most. I had so much fun @thisiscalixto. Thank you again. #saturdaychurch #nylff #nylff2017 #nyc #BLOCKTHEHATE #thedoubtersmademedoit #MEVSME #theresroomforeveryoneatthefinishline #momshot ???? @rosser1961

A post shared by Darren Young aka Freddie (@fredarren) on

Darren has faced a lot of problems at WWE and while winning the Tag title he has also potential as performing single in the ring. The problem is that he has got injured so many times that that has resulted in putting the titles on hold. He is one and only openly-gay character and talks about it freely and fan adore him a lot. WWE would love to have him in the ring but problem is, he gets hurt much often.

12. Dolph Ziggler

#tfw you don't have to fake it #sdlive

A post shared by Dolph Ziggler (@heelziggler) on

It is a confirmation that Dolph is unsure whether he will re-sign with WWE in coming year or not. It has a lot to do with his position in WWE but he can still cope up with the best. He has been art of it for much longer but now WWE wants to give new talent some chances. hence resulting in making his job out.

13. Cesaro

That face you make when you're about to clean 345. This equaled my PR from a few years back and was the highest I cleaned post rotator cuff surgery over a year ago. Failed at 350… still, I take 345! Also Form was ugly but getting better little by little (video provided to @hardnockssouth for verification) @mogyapp @progenex @onnit @romwod @getworkt @reebok @crossfitkrypton #BeTheBar

A post shared by Cesaro (@wwecesaro) on

He ha a pretty good run when he arrived at WWE. HE became a multi time WWE Tag Team Champion and WWE United States Champion and this is all he has done. He made it possible that when Tyson got hurt, he could manage as a single performer. He has given many good matches but it seems like WWE do not want to give him much opportunities. He could easily go back to indies and get the opportunities of his life.

14. Apollo Crews

Went down to Tampa along with @sashabankswwe to show our brother @titusoneilwwe some support with #TBBF2017. Proud of this man and everything he is doing. Thanks for having us my dude! #Worldwide ????????

A post shared by Apollo Crews (@apollocrewswwe) on

He has been almost useless since coming to WWE. He first got at WWE NXT, where he could be on top pretty quick. Apollo Crews has been practically useless since coming to WWE. Vince McMahon like him a lot and wanted him reach upper ranks quite quicker, which Triple H gave in to. He first arrived to WWE NXT, where he would shine pretty quick. Apollo would have hit the main roster after Wrestle Mania 32. Putting him already on main roster seems a bit query! HE might at least get some time to prove something but he basically zip.

15. Daniel Bryan

Tonight in Seattle for the first time WWE is selling @seahawks colored Yes shirts! Hoorah!!!

A post shared by Bryan Danielson (@bryanldanielson) on

He has not been cleared by WWE because every neurologist in America is the one reason. The reason is a scan that scared him and WWE, as they are going through a concussion lawsuit, thus forcing him to retire even before his contract ends. Later he found out that the scan was nothing to worry about but WWE would not let him in, not because of health problems but business issues.

Ex-boyfriend Slashed Screaming Student 25 times Then Left Her to Bleed to Death a Week After She Dumped Him

Stabbing-shutter

A student was slashed 25 times by a bitter ex-boyfriend in the toilet, after which she bled to death.

The victim Karolina Chwiluk, was 2o and studying architecture when she was stabbed to death by her 22-year-old jealous ex-boyfriend, Grzegorz Kosiec, after she started dating another man.

The victim could be heard screaming ‘ouch’ and ‘stop’ as the blood as her enraged unleashed a lethal knife attack on her. Her cousin Monica Fijak, 42, and her daughter’s boyfriend David Czerwiwski, also got wounded when they ran to her aid and Koisec turned the blade on them

Fijak and Czerwiwski were rushed to the emergency room after the killer fled the scene where they were treated for multiple stab injuries but they were lucky to survive. Ms Chwiluk however, did not. She was declared dead around 11 pm on May 4, 2017, in Limehouse, East London.

The victim, originally from Poland was a student at the University of Westminster. She was studying interior architecture and part-time working as a waitress at the Polish embassy.

Kosiec, also Polish and working as a labourer first met on Christmas 2014 at the same two-bedroom apartment on Dora street, where she was killed.

She and Kosiec had been dating for a while until this year when Ms Chwiluk had had enough of his drunken episodes. He pleaded with her to not leave him and repeatedly tried to contact her through Facebook and followed her around in London.

Kosiec was arrested after which he pleaded guilty to one account of murder and two charges of attempted murder. It’s been three weeks since Ms Chwilkuk had broken with him due to his inability to keep a grip on himself under the influence of alcohol, and a week since she started dating another man. He spun out of control when she chose her new boyfriend over him.

“It seems she was unable to deal with the fact that his girlfriend had left him.”

The victim and the perpetrator were on friendly terms when Kosiec decided to visit her on Ms Fijak’s flat where he repeatedly stabbed her in the neck, head and body after she died from blood loss.

The killer, in his statement, said he could not believe that Ms Chwiluk had left him. The case was taken to the Old Bailey where he is yet to be sentenced for the charges he himself plead guilty to.
