Have you been suffering from regular pain in one side of your buttock, been facing numbness or weakness in lower back that radiates through pelvis and buttocks down to the leg? Does this pain get worse while carrying our normal activities such as sitting, standing, walking, twisting, sneezing or lifting? These all sound like symptoms of Sciatica. Don’t get scared as nearly 40% of people suffer from sciatica pain or irritation of sciatic nerve at some stage in life.

2023.06.01 18:06 lekongster Help! Bunny’s litter habbits are worse after neutering

Before neutering he was using the litter box regularly, he would never pee on the bed except for one time where he was left alone in the room and pooped sometimes but I could safely wake up to a poop-free bed, I would see him jump off the bed and go to the little box. Now after neutering almost every night he poops and pees on the bed. I can’t discipline him right away cause I don’t know how long had it been but I know he knows he did something wrong cause when I wake up to clean it at 3 am he runs near the litter box and seems nervous. When I’m awake I always shoo him from the spot when I see him digging on it but I can’t do that when I’m asleep and I don’t wanna leave him in the pen cause I put him there while I work in the morning and that would equal to a lot of hours locked up, before neutering he would get his exercise while I slept and then chill in the corner of my bed until I woke up, then turn around and greet me, now I wake up sleeping next to a pile of poop. Is this behavior gonna stop or do I have to start putting him on his pen before I go to bed? I neutered him cause he was circling and honking a lot, that got fixed and I thought that would also make the litter habits better but they got way worse.

2023.06.01 18:05 cmcclure975 How to become a car sales man

Just turned 16, trying to find out what I should do to get into car sales. I can't get a license for 6-12 more months so I don't think I could be a porter at a dealership yet. Anyways I was just curious if there's a good job I could do that could kinda build up my confidence/skill in sales, maybe just a door to door sales job or something not to sure. My dad was really good with people and so is my brother but I sadly seem to not be as gifted in this area, maybe it's just cause I haven't actually talked/networked with as many people as them. Im just looking for a good job that could improve my communication skills that I can get at 16. TYIA!

2023.06.01 18:05 gewbarr11 Trouble sharing splitting attention between both kids

Hey Daddit, so I have a question for y’all. I have two incredible young boys, ages 3 and 1. I love these two dudes more than life itself, working from home since they’ve been born due to covid has been the GREATEST thing to ever happen to me, I love being their dad and watching them grow and learn and become their own little people. My 3 year old, our first, is legitimately a spitting image of me down to his personality, quirks, looks, etc. even so much that he inherited my difficult tendencies I apparently had at his age lol. This has caused a lot struggle and triumph between he and I, where it’s hard to help him through his emotions but so rewarding when things click for him because of the effort. Because of this, I have an incredibly strong bond with him. Our second on the flip side is a spitting image of my wife, even down to looks and behavior. He is as easy as they come, always happy and always goes with the flow. We got lucky that we get to see this dynamic. However, because of my bond with our first and, and the fact that he’s so interactive now and can have convos, learn, is able to experience so much more with his level of maturity, I feel like I’m not giving my second child the attention he deserves. I think the bond isn’t as strong either because my second is so easy to deal with that the “squeaky wheel gets the grease” situation happens frequently too.
If you’ve felt this way, how do you deal and make sure both kids get equal and adequate attention? I love both kids so much, but want to ensure our second is getting all the attention we’ve given our first.

2023.06.01 18:05 ThatHartleyKid Metro Royale: Equipment Lock System

They need to implement some sort of system that prevents you from switching equipments in the game.
The inventory system is so bad to the point that sometimes looting can take a whole second for the loot to be updated, and this might cause you to mistakenly press the level 1 armor that's next to the loot stash, ultimately throwing away your fabled level 6 armor for nearby teammates / enemies to get.
The system will have locks next to the items. If locked, it will prevent you from putting the armors or weapons into inventory / throwing it onto the ground. Picking new armors and weapons will put it in your inventory instead of equipping it.

2023.06.01 18:05 Due_Statistician7242 high aneuploidy rate

We just got our PGT-A test back. Out of 7 blastocysts, we had just 1 euploid embryo. I'm 34 years old, and our doctor told us this was not what they expected.
The cycle went quite well; I had 18 follicles, they got 11 follicles, 8 were mature, 8 fertilized, 7 blastocyst, 5 day 5, 2 day 6 and all AA or AB. My egg quality seemed great they told me, but genetically apparently there is something wrong. I was wondering what could cause such a low euploidy rate? Is it bad luck? Can we do something to get a higher euploidy rate? Change medication protocol? Supplements? Food?
My partner was told to have high DNA fragmentation; 43% SS and 61% DS (COMET)
Two/three months before starting the cycle I was sick (food poisoning and influenza + sinusitus (we went to India)). I've had fever (on and off) for 3 a 4 weeks. Could that have had an effect?
And final question; is this result predictive for the next cycle?
thanks (a lot) in advance

2023.06.01 18:04 wodanob508 My Q quit drinking and I'm beyond pissed.

Back in February I filed suit against my SO in order to be granted a legal separation from her. The county Sheriff sat on the paperwork for almost 2 months before they served her. Once she was served, she quit drinking and now she has been sober for just over a month.
My Qs drinking has been bad for a long time, but the last year and a half have been pretty intense and increased to 2-4 handles of vodka a week. I asked her to leave over a year ago and a few times in between. Got her to agree to go to rehab before she backed out, I got family involved and asked her to quit several times.
Eventually she kept telling me to file and saying some pretty horrid things to be as well.
But now that she has been served, now she quits.
But here is the kicker, she asked me why I want to continue to go through with the separation/divorce if my reasons for initiating this process were due to her drinking and not quitting. My reasons are varied, but i will say because there is no remorse on her part for the damage she has done. Even in conversations now she denies having caused any harm to myself, or our children. Again, like so many other stories here in this sub, there is zero accountability, only justification and what 'caused' them to drink; even going so far as to blame it on the children.
Her quitting doesn't hurt my case, so I am not pissed about that, it is simply frustrating after years of pleading for her to quit and even saying to her "you won't do the one thing (rehab) that will give us a chance to start repairing our marriage; you won't sacrifice six weeks for us?!" her cold, snarky drunk response of "nope" and then telling me "even if I was sober, we would fail, so go ahead and file, pay me alimony and for a place I can live, and i will gladly go fuck other people." Hearing that was idk, I had heard those insults before, but this time I flipped a switch and went cold and calculated; I filed the next morning.
Its bad of me, but damnit do I wish she was still drinking.
P.s. for those that will read this and ask what I am doing for my recovery; I am currently in intensive one on one therapy

2023.06.01 18:04 mycotopian How to drop .5-1v" from a 9-12v dc feed

I am running a sensors input voltage at 14.2v dc instead of 12.9 just about 1v out of its ideal range . This is causing the sensor reporting to come out high. What is a reliable passive way to shave .5-1v off of the output voltage. Ideally a single component that can be soldered inline. I have small buck converter but it is not very efficient and drops a minimum of 1v.
Forgive my ignorance I am new to tinkering on the component level. I do have a some misc resistors , diodes, capacitors etc. to use if that helps. Thank you

2023.06.01 18:04 elgat0verde Leaving a narcissist family with nothing

Hi guys
I am back!
(used to be s0mbraverde)
I am not one to ask for opinions over the internet because I am a huge believer of "doing what feels right" as of late (moreso when I faced my trauma that one day... Ay ay ay)
But I am a bit troubled and I would like some advice from someone who has been through a similar situation
For starters I am 38, divorced (married a woman just like my mother... shivers)
I have two kids (5 and 7)
Was living in Utah in a good job and far away from my nfamily (sadly, far from my kids as well)
And was manipulated by my nfamily into coming back to work for them "cause of the kids, we also changed"
I bet some of y'all know how it it "we have changed so come back to us cause we're soooooooo depressed"
A narcissist will never let go of the abused because they LOVE to feel superior in any way possible
I am back at my parents house, just quit the job that i LOATHED at a call center (got tired of being insulted by random people) and only have around 45-50 bucks in my bank account (around 1000 pesos or so)
I have been thinking a lot about just grabbing my guitar, hopping on a bus and going to Texas but I also think about my kids (I have dual citizenship)
I wouldn't mind starting from 0 at all but I also don't want to feel like "I'm running away"
The first time I left was to run away and I spent 2 years far from my kids and only saw them about 20 days which was extremely hurtful (i adore my kids)
So IDK if I should wait to get kicked out of the house or just walk...
Any pointers? Any ideas? Should I just put up with them until I can just leave?
I can't find a good job that pays well (I live in a very small town in Mexico and am carless)
I'm sorry I'm just losing it, and in getting physically ill from the stress (have a bad rash on my arms)

2023.06.01 18:03 MethylceIl-OwI-3518 A "Sympathetic Reset" might be worth exploring to treat Hard-flaccid

So I've been reading about Goldensteins theory a little bit and I'm fully sold on the idea that sympathetic activity in the pelvic region is responsible for HF.
The one thing that I was unsure of with Goldensteins theory though is the methods he lists for treatment of HF for those without Tarlov Cysts. In essence, his treatment methodology is basically conservative management, which is a crap outlook.
I've been researching and managed to find something called a "sympathetic reset" which combines nerve blocks with other medications to essentially give a factory reset to the sympathetic nerves responsible for causing chronic pelvic conditions, including those that effect the penis.
You can read about the process here ->
It sure sounds like this could be a treatment option worth exploring for people with HF. It's not a surgery, it's permanent if it's successful, and returns to baseline after the procedure if it fails. I can't really think of anything to lose.
What do you all think?

2023.06.01 18:03 Karolinea12 How to give your life to jesus when you don’t want to

Since the beginning of year i’ve been feeling a pull towards God. i’ve been extremely depressed and anxious, something deep in my heart knows that it’s God calling me but the problem is that i don’t want to give my life to Jesus…i keep thinking about how boring my life will become, i will have to stop hanging out with my friends, will have to break up with my boyfriend, stop listening to music i love…you can’t even have a little cocktail on a night out…i don’t want that life and i just can’t bring myself to do it…i wish you didn’t have to completely destroy who you are for God to accept you. I’m so so scared to do it. i don’t want to. But the thing is that i almost feel forced, i’m tormented, i lack peace which is why i think God is forcing me to do it…it’s strange cause people always say God gives you free choice but i don’t want to follow god but feels forced to. i guess i’m asking how does one do it ? how can i want it? i don’t want to. i love my life as it is….i don’t know what to do

2023.06.01 18:03 OrdinaryBother1804 Advice (don’t be too mean lol)

Ok so I am a college student. I get stressed very easy, and it can cause my own mental depression. I just recently got a job at a bank and it was gonna be great until I saw that I had to work 40 hours a week for 3 weeks. Yeah ik to most this isn’t bad but just kinda look at it from my point of view. I never worked a real job like this , most I worked was target , cfa and I worked long hours too but it was never as shit as this job I had. I have been on the computer all day just doing virtuals. After the 3 weeks I get to go back to 20 hours and work which hopefully isn’t bad because then I can actually do my hands on job. I am also doing an accounting course this summer and it starts during that 40 hour work week I have. I am almost done with the first week, but I’m dreading the other 2 weeks I have to go to.

2023.06.01 18:03 Bigenemy000 Week 89 of Fan Made Perks

To everyone, if you can, drop your comment below on what you think of my perks, i would really enjoy it even more if its a detailed judgment.
It takes me a lot of time to do these weekly posts and i would love to see more people interested in them.
Info about fan made perk typology and status effects i made are below in the post!

Killer perk: Cluster Headache

Injured survivors get every 60/55/50 seconds a very hard skillcheck, if they miss it they will suffer the hemorrhage status effect until fully healed and the Crippled status effect for 1.5 seconds.

Killer perk: Shut Down

After hooking a survivor, the generator with the least progress gets blocked by the entity as long as there are still closed chests in the trial. While a generator is blocked by the entity due to this perk effect, chests auras are revealed to survivors 36/30/24 meters near them, if a survivor opens a chest all blocked generators will no longer be blocked.

Devoted Killer perk: Rust Reflection

This perk occupies 2 slots. After kicking a generator, you'll see for 5/6/7 seconds the aura of the survivors who have worked on that generator before it started regressing. After downing a survivor with a basic attack, any generator they worked on before getting downed will start regressing if no one is currently working on them.

Survivor perk: Watchman

After opening a chest, this perk gains a token. You can use 1 token to rummage a chest and find the special item "Spyglass" which can be used while standing still or crouching. While using the Spyglass, your POV becomes in first person and is zoomed by 75% while outside the killer radius and by 35% while inside the killer radius. Looking at a survivor, generator, chest, exit gate, totem, pallet, window or the killer with the "Spyglass" for 2 consecutive seconds causes their aura to be revealed to all survivors for 4/5/6 seconds and if possible has that object added to your map if you're holding one. The Spyglass can be used for a total of charges equivalent to 11 seconds.
(since the Spyglass is a special item, and in the next update the devs will separate special items from normal ones allowing to hold both of them, you will be able to have a map and the Spyglass at the same time)

Survivor perk: Humble Guess

After that a survivor is injured by any means, this perk activates for 30 seconds. When this perk activates, you gain a recover and heal bonus by a random amount between 15%~100%/25%~100%/25%~125% until the perk deactivates. This effects also applies to other survivors if they heal you while the perk is active. Not comulable with other healing boost perks.
(this perk was present in last week but it was a worse botany knowledge since the boost was only on healing and between 30%~60% or something like that, now it can be more beneficial since it also works with recovery and if other heals you)

Survivor perk: Résistant

After being unhooked this perk activates for 20 seconds, if while this perk is active you gain the deep wound status effect you will gain a 2% haste status effect until commiting a conspicuous action or after 120 seconds have passed. The haste granted from this perk increases by 0.5/1/1.5% For each hook state on all survivors
(note: dead survivors still counts as 2 hook stages, not as 3)

(Crippled Is a new status effect i came out with during week 34 of fan made perks. Crippled will make impossible for the survivor to sprint until the end of its duration, until healed if you're injured when it's applied or until injured by the killer. With this change i slightly buffed trapper, when a survivor escapes from one of his traps he will get Crippled for 3 seconds, this way trapper technically has even less rng against him if a survivor escapes last second in front of him)
(Devoted perks are new typology of perks i came out with during week 44 of fan made perks. These perks are incredibly powerful and are often Win conditions on their own, but they come with also some downsides, For example all Devoted perks occupies always 2 perk slots and they add also additional malus that changes drastically the gameplay, sometimes they might even make impossible to equip certain other perks! These perks exist both for survs and killers)

Sharp Roku TV LC-50LB481U Help
Hi everyone,
I have a Sharp Roku TV Model LC-50LB481U I purchased in 2018.
Everything is working on it perfectly except the other day I noticed right across the middle of the screen it is darker than the rest. It is subtle at first but in certain movies you can see it clear as day. I attached a photo to see. Any help on what could be causing this and how to fix it? Thanks.

I don’t feel anything holy or I can’t sense God’s presence whenever I enter the church. Yes this isn’t the true church at all but all the cult comments aside, I atleast want to feel fulfilled but how do I go about feeling this way?
If I’m going to be stuck in this church for another decade, I atleast want to try and revive my faith and submit to God (if there is one) whilst disobeying whatever EVM and his CA cause I still think they’re a bunch of frauds. I want to be someone like LJ Caraang who’s still very much a christian man but is woke from INC’s bs

2023.06.01 18:02 Leading-Button9057 Betta eating problem

I know this might not seem like a big deal because of how shortly of a time period this is, but if my betta is sick I would really love to find the problem as soon as possible. He’s been a little bit slower the past week, not anything extremely noticeable just moving a little bit slower, and last night after about a 25/50% water change he wouldn’t eat his dinner. I chalked it up to him having stress from the water change, even though that hasn’t happened before? His water is the correct temperature, added conditioner, everything, so I’m worried as this is not usual behavior for him. He also refused to eat this morning. I’m going to attempt to feed him again tonight but if he refuses to eat again I want to make sure I’m doing everything I can be doing. He doesn’t look physically ill, just has been a little bit slower moving and hasn’t eaten his past two meals. I don’t have a water testing kit available to me now. If you have any ideas please let me know! I have been feeding him like usual twice a day but am worried it could be an over feeding problem due to the portion I’m giving him? His stomach isn’t super noticeable as in I don’t see any noticeable bloating. If that’s the case, then, when would he go back to eating normally? Is there any way I can help him? He’s in a 10gal with heater, filter, live plants and areas to hide/rest

2023.06.01 18:02 Electronic-Hat-1320 AITA for not wanting to travel with my girlfriend for EVERY trip that she plans out?

This is a new relationship. I’m 25M, she is 29.
Here’s the thing, she loves traveling, I personally hate it. Maybe because all the traveling trips I took as kid/teen with my parents left a sour taste in my mouth. That and I guess I never gained patience for sitting in a car hours on end, or going through the process of checking in at airports and waiting for you flight. In addition I’m a BIT of a anxious, neurotic mess of a person. Don’t enjoy leaving my comfort zone, and like growing and experiencing at my own slow pace. And on top of all that I have tinnitus, which limits me in being “fun”.
My girl is the opposite, she’s more confident, strong willed, extrovert, and loves traveling. We have talked about our thoughts, and I expressed hating traveling. When we talked about building relationship, she mentioned once it was important that we travel together once in a while. I agreed to make an effort, as long as she knew I had my limits, and also limited where I could go (loud places that are ear damaging for example, so concerts and clubs). But that I will make an effort to travel with her on trips.
Going out of town often I don’t mind, short trips to big cities a couple hours away. And we’ve already gone on one several weeks ago actually where we stayed the night.
Big trips that require longer travel and more days is where I start requiring a stronger will and energy. So last night she said that we should go to two different states at different months this year. I told her I wouldn’t be able to go to both.
She then replied “why cause of your limited days at work or money reasons”
Me: “both haha”. (Its true, i can’t take many days off work, limited sick/vacations days, and this year I started living alone, renting an apartment that eats up around 40% of my monthly take home salary).
Her: “haha well if would spend less stuff on dumb things like cigars or blu rays you’d have more money. You’re just afraid of getting out of your comfort zone”.
Right here is where my emotional state started changing to a bit of anger because I can feel the pressure coming from her. And I strongly dislike being pressured from anyone. And for some reason I’m surrounded by people who do that to me even when I say no decisively and don’t change my mind.
So I said “yes thats true, I don’t like to, yet here I am still offering to go on some trips with you, even if not at all”.
“Yeah i appreciate that a lot but you should come to both, we go on weekends so you don’t have to take many days off, and just stop spending so much”
“Look, most of my money goes to my apartment and groceries and bills, i can liberally spend money on maybe one hobby of mine, while the rest I can barely do due to lack of money. And in truth you know i dont like traveling, and only do it with you cause i know its important to you and want you to be happy. I can go on a few trips with you but there’s a limit for me and dont wanna feel pressured doing something im not comfortable with”.
She got more serious here and just said “yeah understood”
After that she said we won’t go to our out of town trips we had planned for the next month or two. I insisted that I wanna go to those with her, because I do, cause I know it’ll make her happy, and because even if I don’t like traveling I’m sure I can find interesting places to go to to enjoy myself. But she was stubborn and just said we dont have to do anything and that she really doesnt want to force me to do anything. She was saying considerate things but I can tell she was pissed and disappointed.
I said goodnight and fell asleep to avoid making the issue worse.
But yeah I don’t know if im the wrong here. Is it bad that I don’t like getting out of comfort zone? every time i try, I don’t like it. It can have its moments and I will enjoy myself sometimes but I really do prefer just doing my own thing and living in a smaller scope. I’ll do it for my girlfriend to make her happy and I know its important to her.
And Im not sure if my anger is justified. I know I can be boring and a homebody, but shit I always try my best to grow. Maybe at a slow pace but I don’t always stay in my show. Up utnil last october I had never driven out of town at all and was scared of the highway. Now Ive gone put of town 6 times since then. Living alone and doing my own chores sounded shitty to me but here I am, with my own apartment, learning to cook, do laundry, cleaning etc.
I understand I’m not mature or the ideal, but shit I try and have my small success, even if they come slow. Just sucks when somebody comes a long trying to speed up the process and demand more of you.

2023.06.01 18:02 PreviousHousing6588 my (f19) crazy first boyfriend (m20) experience : he almost kills my dog and that is not even the worst part

I don't even know where to start.
We both go to the same university, where we met, and were together for four months total. In the beginning I always had a lot of fun around him and his friends, but I knew that we probably weren't going to end up working out, especially because of the long distance over summer.
The term 'himbo' perfectly describes this man: his lack of general knowledge is astounding. The first time I met him, he didn't know what the word homophobic meant, he didn't know Montana is a state, and he didn't know what paprika was. Throughout our relationship more of these shocking discoveries came to light: he didn't know what a hate crime was, and has almost zero basic historical education. My personal favorite was that he could not name the seven continents. He guessed first The United States, then Alaska, and then corrected Alaska to Argentina. He did end up figuring out Antartica, props to him, but I feel understanding his absolute stupidity is necessary for the story.
At college, anytime I brought him around my friends, he was horrible. Inexplicably horrible. He was on his phone the whole time, did not engage in group conversation, and at times, was actively rude towards my friends. I ignored the red flag, and talked to him about the problem, hoping he would change his behavior (he said he would), but in the few times that he came around my friends I felt incredibly embarrassed by him. His excuse was always that they aren't 'his type of people' and even went to far as to call them obnoxious.
Fast forward to summer, he comes to visit my family for the first, and stays for a week. He treated my family the same way he treated my friends, paying them no mind, and thinking only about himself. Throughout his stay, he cried 3 separate times, in a seemingly manipulative way, managing to end every day on a tense and sour tone. Almost like he wanted to be miserable, and make me miserable. This trip my parents also generously got us Universal tickets, and he did not even thank them, even after I reminded him to. On top of this, he left his stuff scattered around my house, and generally made a mess, which doesn't necessarily bother me, but it was definitely disrespectful.
The next time he visited for just a weekend, but it is where the story gets really interesting. He brought into my house chocolate square edibles, and left them in his bag on the ground. The day prior, I talked to him about the importance of closing my bedroom door (where he was staying) to keep the dogs out, but I was not aware of the weed at this time. Come Sunday, my four girlfriends are at my house hanging out with both of us, and he is acting the same way towards my friends that he always did. Then I noticed my dog acting really weird. My mom wasn't home at the time, so first I called her to get home ASAP, about 20 minutes. In those 20 minutes I was with my extremely sick dog and 7 year old sister on the couch hoping that my dog didn't die before my mom could take her to the vet. My boyfriend walked right past me, and didn't come to sit with me, despite my obvious concern and need for help, until I called him over. He stood behind me, pet the dog twice, and then went into my room to call his friend and watch Fortnite youtube edits.
When my mom got home, she took the dog to the vet, where they first ran a drug panel. It tested positive for THC, caffeine, and Benzos. Remember when I said he left his stuff everywhere- he left packets of RunGum (caffeinated gum for running), and chewed up pieces around my house that my dog got into. The dog also obviously got into his edibles. He still won't admit to the benzos.
Before my mom called me to tell me about what showed up on the tests, or give any update, my boyfriend was frantic. He was yelling "NO!", and "FUCK!" to himself. I didn't really know what to make of it, but looking back, it's clear he knew that whatever happened was due to him, and he did not speak up to tell me, even though my dog would have definitely died without the wonders of modern medicine. By the time my mom calls me with an update about the drug panel, my boyfriend is crying hysterically, making it really hard to get any pertinent information out of him regarding the drugs.
Already this situation is not ideal, and his reaction to it made the problem much worse. I don't say this to be rude, I know that people cannot control their emotions but DAMN I have never seen anyone cry as much as this man does. At this point, my parents want him to be gone before they get back from the vet, but I can't get him to leave because of the emotional turmoil he's going through. I ended up getting my aunt to come over and help me calm him down, because I seriously could not do it alone; he was in crisis. Finally he leaves after his two hour breakdown, but of course this experience caused significant issues in our relationship. He proves disrespectful and self-serving at every intersection.
At this point, my whole family and all my friends wants me to break up with him, and they are certain that we will not work out. As a side note, earlier in the weekend, my boyfriend did not help my mom bring in the groceries, and stole the aux from her when she went to bring the groceries in. In my mind, this is worse than the dog. It was intentional. I agree with them, and after a week, I muster up the courage to call him and break up officially, though we had been rocky, and I think he knew it was coming. I said the words 'I want to break up with you' three times, and each time it got ignored. He begged me to at least go on a break for a few weeks. To give us a chance. I conceded, and decided to sit on it. Much to my surprise, the next day at 3pm I receive the following text from him: "Its over. I'm breaking up with you." I responded, "you're texting me this?", and he said (and I quote), "I can pull the trigger unlike you. Neva cared." NEVA CARED????? That's why you cried for hours?
Well a few hours after he sent those messages, he told me he started to really regret his actions. He called his friends, and they all told him he was stupid, and then he told me he cried again for another 2 hours. He called me later that night and begged me to get back together and go back onto the break, to which I obviously declined. I told him I would not be getting back together with him, but that I would talk to him in two weeks.
This is where, once again, the story becomes really funny. Yesterday I received a tag on a TikTok video from his account posted two years ago. The comment was asking if we were still together, but I thought it was really strange because I never met the person, and they were tagging me on a super old video. My boyfriend, of course responded to the comment and said "we are broken up as of now, but we are going to talk in two weeks". This struck me as really fishy. I called my boyfriends best friend about it, and we came to the conclusion that it was my boyfriends own alt account, and he crafted the comments to get my attention, and probably to remind me that he's thinking about it. Extremely manipulative, but also soooooo funny. That was my final straw. I knew I needed to tell my story, because everything that happened was so fucking crazy.
Also, just for fun, he told me the reason he didn't interact with my friends at my house is because they are "reasonable attractive and he knows how he is with girls, and he didn't want to accidentally flirt with them". He also has no female friends, and no desire to have any. He told me he "wasn't dating me for my looks" and that he doesn't want to date anyone "too attractive". This is the tip of the iceberg, but honestly I don't regret any of it, just for the humor of it all.

2023.06.01 18:01 AutoModerator What are the benefits and side effects of Ashwagandha?

What is ashwagandha?
The ashwagandha plant is one of the most powerful herbs. Various parts of the ashwagandha plant are used for medicinal purposes, with ashwagandha extract mainly being used in supplements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural agent that reportedly helps the body cope with stress. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may also therefore potentially help with anxiety and depression too.
What does ashwagandha do?
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha is known to help reduce stress and anxiety. One way it does this is by reducing levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress. Additionally, ashwagandha has been shown to improve mood and cognitive function, both of which can be negatively affected by stress.
Enhances Cognitive Function
Ashwagandha has also been shown to improve cognitive function. One study showed that it improved memory and reaction time in healthy adults. Another study found that it improved task performance in people with ADHD. Additionally, ashwagandha may help prevent age-related cognitive decline.
Boosts Energy Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to boost energy levels. One study showed that it increased stamina and reduced fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, ashwagandha may help improve exercise performance.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. These effects can all contribute to enhanced energy levels.
Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. One study showed that it improved insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce fasting blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of diabetes.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. These effects can also contribute to improved blood sugar control.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Ashwagandha has been shown to help lower blood pressure. One study showed that it improved blood pressure in people with hypertension. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can contribute to high blood pressure.
Is ashwagandha safe?
Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for most people. However, it can cause side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and vomiting in some people. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's best to avoid ashwagandha.
What happens when you take ashwagandha daily?
As a sleep aid, ashwagandha may help people get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer. It is also used to promote male potency. Ashwagandha has a variety of health benefits, including reduced blood sugar levels, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety relief, as well as an increase in muscle strength and fertility. Depending on your requirements, dosages vary from 250 to 500 mg per day for at least one month.
When it comes to stress relief, ashwagandha may be as effective as some prescription medications. A 2010 study found that the herb was just as effective as lorazepam (Ativan) in reducing stress and anxiety. click the link below to learn more about abhwagandha, and its real health benefits.

2023.06.01 18:01 DDumbBear Leopard gecko pale after shedding

So last week my leopard gecko just got done shedding, and today when I went to replace his water I noticed that he was looking really pale. After removing the water and kind of looking at him, he wasn't really moving all that much and he seemed extremely lethargic. The temp in his enclosure is perfectly normal, and the only thing that seemed off is that his humidity seemed abnormally high in his tank. I am wondering what I should try and do, or if it is any cause for concern? A vet visit is something that I can perhaps do, but is a little difficult at the moment monetarily so this is my best bet. If you have any questions I will answer as best I can. Thank you!

2023.06.01 18:01 ttrizzyt The Universe always finds a way

I want to preface this by saying I’m not looking for advice. I know my situation, and I know that there is no way to change this. I guess I just want comfort.
The Universe always finds a way to take the common statement “it can’t get any worse”, and prove it wrong in every way. A year ago I was so happy, I had everything I ever wanted; a partner who is the love of my life, a job which I enjoyed, and friends to surround me.
One thing after another has led all of this to end. My partner broke up with me and I thought “well, it can’t get any worse”. Then my friends got tired of me and left, and I kept thinking “well, it can’t get any worse surely”. The final nail in my metaphysical coffin has finally been hammered home today. I have been let go from my job, and even still I can’t help but think “it can’t get any worse”.
I know that it will get worse, somehow, and I know that exchanging a metaphysical coffin for a physical one is the only way to end the endless repetition. Nothing has gone right for me in the last year, no matter how hard I have tried to make my life better.
I don’t want to die, but I have become a leech on everyone and everything I love, and my continued existence is causing them the pain I so desperately want to escape.
I don’t want to live like this.

2023.06.01 18:01 TheRealStaray 🚫🪞STOP THE MIRRORS🪞🚫

Listen up, folks, because it's time we had a serious talk about the most dangerous, divisive, and downright political objects in our lives: mirrors. That's right, those seemingly innocent reflective surfaces that line our walls and fill our bathrooms are nothing but trouble. It's time to expose their true nature and call for an end to their reign of visual deception.
Mirrors, my friends, have become the ultimate weapon of the political elite. They manipulate our perceptions, distort our self-image, and fuel a culture of narcissism. They trap us in a never-ending cycle of self-doubt and comparison, robbing us of our confidence and mental well-being. These treacherous objects have transformed into political propaganda machines, warping our minds and controlling our actions.
But that's not all! Mirrors have even infiltrated the world of fashion and beauty, reinforcing unrealistic standards of perfection and body image. They push us to strive for an unattainable ideal, causing insecurities and perpetuating a culture of self-loathing. It's a vicious cycle that benefits the powerful, leaving us in a perpetual state of dissatisfaction and dependency.
Let's not forget the divisive nature of mirrors. They pit us against one another, turning friends into rivals and fostering jealousy and envy. The mirror has become a battleground for comparison, where every flaw and imperfection is magnified, leading to toxic competitiveness and a fractured society. The obsession with physical appearance promoted by mirrors distracts us from addressing the real issues that plague our world.
Enough is enough! It's time to take a stand against the tyranny of mirrors. We must shatter the illusion they create and embrace our true selves, free from the influence of distorted reflections. Let's redirect our focus towards inner growth, personal achievements, and genuine connections with others. By dismantling the mirror's stronghold, we can reclaim our autonomy, self-worth, and the power to define our own beauty.
So, my friends, I urge you to join the movement. Let's rip those mirrors from the walls, banish them from our lives, and free ourselves from their manipulative grasp. Embrace your uniqueness, reject the mirage of societal expectations, and remember that true beauty lies within. Together, we can build a world where mirrors hold no power and where authenticity reigns supreme!
