TRUE LIFE: I’M HAVING TWINS

Are you pregnant… with twins, triplets, or even more? Were you previously unable to conceive, but with the help of fertility drugs, now expecting multiple babies? Are you concerned about the financial, physical, and emotional toll of taking care of more than one newborn, or the possibility of complications during pregnancy or birth? Is this your first pregnancy, and perhaps an unexpected one? Were you looking forward to an active lifestyle or career that you are now going to have to put on hold? Or is this the first step in creating the big family you’ve always wanted? Have you always wanted twins, and now your dream is coming true? If you’re pregnant with multiples, MTV wants to hear from you.

 

If you appear to be between the ages of 17 and 28 and identify with any of the above, MTV wants to hear your story. Email us at twins@mtvn.com. Please be sure to include your name, location, phone number, and a recent photo.

TRUE LIFE: I’M STUCK AT HOME

Are you at the age where everyone has left their parents’ house but you’re still living at home?  Do you like the idea that your mom still cooks and does your laundry, or are you ready to take that on yourself, but you can’t figure out how to get out of the nest? Do your parents nag you to get a place of your own, but you can’t, or just don’t see the point?  Are they about to cut you off or kick you out? Or do you have a significant other who wants you to get a place of your own at last?

 TRUE LIFE: I’M A KLEPTOMANIAC

At one time or another we’ve all had the desire to take something that wasn’t ours. But those who suffer from the impulse control disorder known as kleptomania find it impossible to resist the urge to steal. And it’s not about the money. Kleptomaniacs constantly feel compelled to steal for no apparent reason. Often they don’t even want the object they take and sometimes even pocket things without realizing it.

 

Do you constantly take objects with little or no monetary value?  Do you steal things without premeditation?  Have you actually been diagnosed with kleptomania?  Are you trying to control your impulses with therapy or other methods? 

 

If you appear between the ages of 16 and 28 and kleptomania is a part of your life we would like to hear your story.  Email us at kleptomania@mtvn.com with your name, location, age, phone number and a picture.

TRUE LIFE: I’M STARTING A DANGEROUS JOB

We’ve all got to make a living somehow, but it takes a certain kind of person to pay the bills by putting their lives on the line.  Are you entering a field that has a dangerous or hazardous reputation?  Are you spending your day deep in a coal mine? Taking measures to become a lumberjack or a logging worker?  Are you training to work on the bomb squad? Do you want to support yourself by constructing bridges and skyscrapers?  Are you seriously considering putting your neck on the line as a rescue worker, firefighter or commercial fisherman?  Are you training to become a medevac pilot or flight engineer?  Is the risk worth the money? Or do you just enjoy the rush of a job that very few people can do?

 

If you appear between the ages of 18 and 28 and are training for or starting a dangerous job we want to hear from you.  Email us at dangerousjob@mtvn.com with your name, location, phone number, photo and story.
