Long story-Quitting my job without another job lined up after finding out that other employees look down on me and others

2023.05.29 23:02 stbsw44 Long story-Quitting my job without another job lined up after finding out that other employees look down on me and others

I have worked at a hospital NICU as a unit clerk/receptionist since June 2022. I previously worked as a registration clerk from 2009-2011 in an ER at another hospital.
I recently finished up my master's in social work degree a few weeks. It was an online program. I'm not so young and I'm 38 and I know I'm starting a new career path too late in life. I initially hoped that working in a hospital would help me get a hospital social worker job. I thought everything was fine at my current job as nurses, physicians, techs, and others are never rude t to me when I encounter them. I never really felt looked down upon until last Wednesday.
A local church donated Crumbl cookies, cupcakes, and cinammon rolls to our unit in honor of a patient's parents who attend their church. The director of nursing took me a plate of a Crumbl cookie and cupcake. I was surprised and wasn't expecting it. Some nurses did see me eating at my desk. As a part of my job, I do supply inventory and I was in one of the supply rooms doing inventory with the door slightly open. I overheard a couple of nurses talking and I knew who they were by their voices one of them said, "I can't believe they let the clerks, receptionists, and EVS cleaning crew get some of the food gifts". The other responded and said, "I agree, they don't deserve the food and just remember we are always better than them".
Hearing this crushed me. I ended up crying later on when I took my last break of the day. I know that sounds stupid, but it hurt. Those comments were enough to turn me off from wanting a social work career in the health care field. I have decided to quit my job at the hospital. Prior to this, I had already been looking for other jobs specifically in hospital social work. Now, I'm expanding to other possible fields related to social work. Financially, I'll be fine as I have a lot of money in savings due to an inheritance I received back in 2020.
I just want to get away from an environment where it seems like nurses don't really care about non-medical employees. I'm meeting early with my boss before my shift on Wednesday to give my two weeks notice.

2023.05.29 23:00 HercHuntsdirty My (24F) Girlfriend Of 6 Years Ended Things With Me (26M) - Looking for Advice

I (26M) was recently broken up with by my (24F) girlfriend of 6 years right after opening up to her about how I had been struggling a lot mentally recently. That's not necessarily the cause, but it happens to be a terrible coincidence.
Backstory to the unfortunate mental struggles:
About 10 weeks ago I had a very long night out and woke up extremely hungover. My brother met up with me that night in our parents car and ended up staying with us for a few drinks, so evidently he left the car.
Of course, I woke up and had a boatload of caffeine so I was already on edge a little bit. My brother was still asleep, so my mom asked me if I could quickly drive my dad to the car so he could take it home. No problem, I hopped in my car and drove there with my dad.
On the way home, completely unprovoked and no anxiety prior, I had an insane panic attack. I’ve never experienced anything like it before. I think I’ve only had one panic attack in my life, and for some reason it left me with a very small amount of social anxiety. During this attack, my hands and feet were completely numb and sweating. At first, I had literally no idea what was going on - I thought it was a legitimate health issue. I ended up taking a bit to drive home, but I made it.
Since then, I've just had heightened anxiety. I've had one other panic attack in the past and I eventually got over the lingering anxiety, so I knew it wasn't permanent.
Mental Health Backstory on her end:
To preface this, we both have anxiety/depression in our genetics unfortunately. In fact, her mom spent some time in the hospital when they were young because of how bad it got.
She also apparently had a ton of anxiety from work recently (she's a nurse, I'm in tech).
On my mothers side of the family, my mom, grandma and great grandma have struggled with anxiety their entire lives, some of them taking antidepressants.
Not fun genes for either of us to have, but we persevered!
Our Relationship:
This is what has been getting to me, our relationship was very healthy. We argued probably 2-3 times per year, we spent the majority of days together - as we lived only a 5 minute drive apart. We were both fully a part of each other's families. All of the normal relationship stuff, we were completely engulfed in it. We had also been looking at engagement rings for a bit and ALWAYS talked about our life together.
When I was about 19 before we were together, I used to drunkenly talk about her all of the time to my friends saying "if she ever gets out of the relationship with her boyfriend (at that time) she's the one I'm going for". When I was graduating high school, I went into her class on yearbook day, grabbed her yearbook and wrote my number in it. Long story short, she ended up single and within a month of that happening, we were together.
The "problems" we had over the years that were semi-recurring:
I didn't suggest enough of our plans. I explained to her a number of times that I'd happily go anywhere, I just don't tend to suggest ideas because sometimes she wanted to, other times she didn't. I've lived by the motto "happy wife, happy life" in that relationship, so I tended to go along with whatever she suggested.
We didn't take enough pictures together. I don't really like being in too many pictures and that bothered her.
We didn't travel together enough. This goes back to the anxiety, I hate flying and haven't done it in almost a decade. However, I have an appointment with my doctor in early July where I'm requesting some "emergencies only" anxiety medication to use for that exact scenario. Note - she went on a number of trips over the years with her closest friends. Furthermore, we had done weekend getaways via car together but those apparently don't count. To add, her friends are hopping on planes at least once per month to go somewhere, I think comparison became the thief of joy here.
I didn't tell her I loved her enough or hug her enough. This one is hard for me because I felt like I definitely told her I loved her a lot. She used to occasionally say "do you even love me", semi-joking but also serious, and I always told her of course I did and even though I may not say it a number of times a day, of course I do. I also did a TON of things for her to show how much I cared (ie. she very rarely had to make a lunch for work, I cooked for her almost every day and we don't even live together) The hugging thing is a bit different, as she's always been extremely affectionate and I never really have been. I truly think it comes down to how I was raised, affection just wasn't a huge part of my childhood. (note, that's not a problem for me or anything, I had incredible family/parents, it just wasn't as prominent as it was in her childhood)
I cared a lot about money and how we could set ourselves up to move out. She had taken 5 trips (two of them by train, three by plane) with her friends in the past year and after the 5th one I asked if she planned on slowing down so she could focus on tackling her student debt and so we could start saving to move out, have a wedding etc. Specifically, I wanted us to be in the position where we weren't renting a home, ESPECIALLY given how much money we were making combined. This part kind of confused me because she was the first one to suggest moving out, but when it came time to adjusting the lifestyle to prepare for it, she didn't like the idea. But, I did use it as a crutch for my anxiety to get out of things sometimes and I did open up to her about that. As an example though, I still went with her to the Gucci store and helped her pick out a very expensive purse to celebrate getting her first real nursing job after graduating. I don't feel that I cared about money (especially given the stage we were in in our lives) more than any of my buddies with girlfriends. I wanted us to be set up well for the coming stages of our lives; they were fast approaching. Furthermore, her friends are catching a plane every weekend and are living with their parents but pay cheque to pay cheque with no prospects of ever leaving unless it's renting
The Situation:
About 7-ish weeks ago, a few weeks after my panic attack, my girlfriend was very adamant that we needed to book a trip together. She said we hadn't been on a "real" trip during our relationship (by real, she means getting on a plane). We were sitting down in her bed on my laptop looking at destinations and flights, but I was incredibly anxious about the whole thing. As we were about to book, I broke down and was fully vulnerable to her for one of the first times in the 6 year relationship. I said that I just don't see myself getting onto a plane right now without some kind of medication to calm me down. On top of that, it would stress me out financially a bit, as I'm a full-time masters student and working full time. Plus, it was during my one-week semester break, so I honestly just wanted to relax.
From that day on, our relationship started going downhill. She said she felt extremely disappointed by the whole situation and she couldn't shake the feeling. We then started only hanging out maybe once per week and it was very bland when we did. A couple weeks after that incident, I slept over at her house and I could tell she was genuinely just not happy at that time.
Brief backstory - despite being 26, my mom still gives me a ton of flack if I sleep at her house. It was rare that I got away with it. But, I did it that night anyway because she always asked me to sleep over but I rarely wanted to have to deal with my mom. I thought it would help show her I'm really trying to get better. She also invited me over the following evening and I obviously went.
After that day, I don't think we saw each other for about 2 weeks. I texted her on a Friday evening and said I just don't feel like she wants to be with me anymore. She picked me up so we could talk, and explained that she felt very disappointed about how we were so close to booking the trip and ended up not doing it. She said she needed a break and I was fine with it, I understood where she was coming from.
During this time, I started seeing a therapist. I found one online who was one of the highest rated in my province and was also extremely experienced in marital/pre-marital counselling so I could tell her about the relationship issues I was having along with my anxiety.
Fast forward about 2 more weeks (last weekend) she texted me saying she was ready to talk and picked me up. She said it's probably best if we just end the relationship for the time being. She explained that she felt she had been disappointed a few times over the years and was bottling a lot of things up. She said she needed time to "find herself again" and didn't know if we would get back together at all in the future or not. Then, we sat there talking in her car for another 30 minutes like things were normal so it really threw me off.
I ended up texting her the next day and asked if I could pick her up because I was confused from the night prior since we talked so normally after the breakup conversation. We ended up talking again, sharing some tears and what not, but I kind of understood why she felt she needed to be alone for a bit, even though she didn't know if we would get back together or not. She said that people do this all of the time and sometimes they come back stronger, but if it was meant to be then we'll get back together. I also told her about how much help I'm getting and how I'm setting a goal to take a vacation when I finish my masters in November. She was noticeably happy and asked a lot about how I was talking to my therapist about improving as a person and a (what I thought was soon to be) fiancé. She asked for all of the details about what we talked about in regards to our relationship and was very happy that I was putting that much effort in.
A couple days ago is when she deleted are photos together, but it came right after she posted an Instagram story while out with a friend who has no stability whatsoever. This friend has been on and off with the same guy (who treats her terribly) for as long as we were together. Not to mention, she sleeps around a ton. I can't help but feel like some of this breakup is being influenced by her friends (specifically this one) wanting her to be single like they are out of jealousy or something. Or, they want her to be flying somewhere once a month with them with no plans for the future. My girlfriend has cried to me in the past because she had been brought to places she didn't want to be because her friend wanted to go for a guy. That friend has also been binge drinking several times weekly for years. The following night, her two friends posted a story of her incredibly drunk in the back of a car with her feet out of the window I'm sure in hopes that I would see it. We're grown ass adults, I can't help but feel like that's just not a cool thing to do to your friend in general? I don't care how drunk you are, in fact I expected her to have a night out with her friends and let loose but posting someone else like that is just insanely stupid to me! To put the icing on the cake, one of my long time buddies from high school decided to go for one of her friends and I gave him substantial warnings about her. Within a year, that relationship was completely over with and she was on to the next.
Neither of us were ever the type one to have one-night stands or get around, so I'm not concerned about anything like that during the breakup. If it happens it happens, but I won't be sleeping with anyone until I've put in all of my effort to saving everything we've built. She's only ever been with me and her ex, while I've had a handful more partners before her - but I've experienced enough in my 26 years to know that there was is only one woman for me.
After all of this, I still couldn't shake the feeling that I felt I was being abandoned during the one time in my entire life I've opened up to anyone and really wanted some support. I'm also just having a hard time processing why it happened and how I can salvage it.
I've texted her once per week since the breaks & breakup happened just telling her that I loved her and wished we were going to XYZ events coming up. I also always say in the message that "You don't have to respond or even read it, I just want you to know". I'm having a hard time deciding if I should continue giving her that weekly text or not, but I really do want her to know how much I care and thought we were a dream team.
I just can't help but feel like we had "problems" that were very fixable and were very minor compared to 99% of couples. Her two best friends have had 5+ boyfriends each in the time that we were together and countless one-night stands. Every time they would break up, I'd hear a story from my girlfriend about how terribly they were treated by these guys and we talked about how lucky we are to have each other. There was no forms of jealousy or self-consciousness between us either, neither of us were bothered when we went out alone with our respective friend groups. I also never for a second worried when she travelled with her friends that she'd cheat or something.
This wraps in with why I can't process the breakup. Aside from the few things we argued about here and there (few times a year) it was an incredibly healthy relationship. I had a great relationship with her friends (despite some of the things I've said about them above) and would often times opt to go out drinking with her group over my group of buddies. I acknowledged my shortcomings as a boyfriend (ie. the affection) with my therapist and she's giving me some help with it. Am I crazy for thinking 1. that I can fix what's happened and 2. Part of this breakup might just be her wanting to see how much I actually care?
Anyway, I might add to this if I remember more important points. I just needed to get some of this off my chest. If you've made it this far into my story, thanks for reading!
TL;DR: A very healthy relationship was ended with a trickle down effect of my mental health being poor at the moment, but was healthy otherwise. How can I salvage everything we've built over 6 years?

2023.05.29 22:59 jango_fetch (OH) Wife Injured by Chiropractor

About 2 weeks ago my wife got an IUD put in. The day after, she started having neck pains and headaches, along with some vomitting and nausea. OB said the IUD is unrelated. Nausea and vomiting stopped after a few days, but neck and head pain persisted. It got to the point last Friday that she needed something to help the pain, so she went to the Chiropractor. Chiropractor did not do any investigation or X-rays, just went to adjusting her neck (hard twisting). Immediately after she said the room started spinning and asked him to call 911 because she felt something was not right, then call her husband(me). Chiropractor called me at work and said my wife was showing signs of a stroke so I hurried there. When I got there EMS was looking at her while waiting for the stretcher. She said she could not see, her speech was severely slurred, and the right side of her face was drooping. They took her to the ER. She vomited quite a bit on the way there they said. By time she got there her symptoms thankfully mostly resolved on their own. We spent two nights, one in ER because they had no rooms available and one in the neurological unit. Long story short the Dr's said she had a pseudo aneurysm due to a minor dissection of an artery from the Chiropractor. She is currently on some restrictions for the next several weeks and we will be adjusting our schedules, including my work schedule to some extent to work around this. She is also already having anxiety and panic attacks because of what happened. Our two year old was with her when this happened, but thankfully he was oblivious to what was going on.
An ambulance ride and two overnights in a hospital are not cheap. Chiropractor tried calling myself and my mother in law since the incident, but we have not answered. She is calling her OB tomorrow to get the IUD removed. We will be looking into layers tomorrow, but would welcome any input into this situation.

2023.05.29 22:59 marzlichto Shoulder injury May 16, not getting better

F28, 200 lbs, 5'4"
I have hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and a number of other chronic pain and chronic health conditions. On May 16th I was folding laundry and reached across my body with my right arm to set a shirt on the correct pile. There was a loud pop, I felt my shoulder move, followed by severe pain and instant tingling from above my elbow to my finger tips. When I woke up the next day, the pain was bearable and the tingling was only in the tip of my pinkie. By afternoon, the pain was getting worse in my shoulder, neck, and back; and the tingling had spread back up to my elbow, plus nerve pain. Concerned about the tingling and nerve involvement, I made an urgent care appt. As I was also entering an endometriosis flare and the pain in my shoulder continued to get worse, I went to the ER instead.
X-rays were normal. They gave me a sling and a shot of toradol and sent me home. Physical therapist on the 19th advised me to keep wearing the sling until I saw Ortho, but my appointment with them isn't until June 5th. I went to a walk in clinic last week due to increasing pain. They just advised me to see Ortho. If I stop wearing the sling, the pain gets worse. I can't lift my arm more than 60⁰ or so without pain. My range of motion has gotten better, but the pain continues to get worse when it is triggered. I can barely even push a soap pump with my right hand. Numbness and tingling is frequent in my last two fingers and my palm. Nerve pain is more frequent from mid forearm down.
Toradol and tramadol have never given me any sort of pain relief. I've been taking ibuprofen (600mg doses) and Tylenol (1300-1950mg doses) daily since it happened but they're barely helping. Any weight on my actual shoulder triggers severe pain and nerve shocks down my arm. I've been using ice packs in my armpit, heating pads on shoulder, neck, and back, and using a TENS unit as well with contact points on front shoulder, back shoulder, back of neck, and mid back. My mom has also been using KT tape to tape my shoulder for hypermobility, which does help. Wearing the sling triggers nerve pain and tingling in my forearm, wrist, and hand, but not wearing it results in overusing my shoulder. The pain worsens throughout the day regardless.
I can add my meds and diagnoses if they are a necessary addition.

2023.05.29 22:58 vark1222 You think you know your wife.......

My wife Shanda is a nurse who has been fired from four hospitals for stealing and consuming patients prescribed narcotics. She has had her nursing license on probation 2 times. Addiction is only one of her flaws. She has been with her husband for 18 years, married for 11. In October of 2022 they went away for the weekend to celebrate their 11th wedding anniversary. After returning from their trip, Shanda wasted little time by starting an affair with a co-worker just 2 days later. She had laid the ground work for this affair before leaving town. This winner she cheated on her husband with, is 7 years older than her (50 years old). He is also married, actually been married 3 times. He is also a nurse. She confided or should I say spread lies to her coworker about her husband to gain sympathy and attention from him. She also told him all of her husbands business and secrets. A little bit abour her husband. They have 3 children 17, 7 and 5 years old. Her husband workes 80 hours a week to ensure that Shanda could buy anything and everything she wanted. He loved her deeply, and tolerated everything she threw at him. Fast forward to 11/29/23. the affair had picked up steam, she spent less and less time at home and taking care of their children. She was 6 weeks in and played her wife role to ensure her husband did not suspect anything. A week prior, her husband was starting to notice weird things like changing passwords, less communication from her on a daily basis and she had become increasing guarded of her phone and spending more time than she ever have had on her social media accounts. Her husband finally had an opportunity on 11/29 when she left her phone upstairs and he grabbed it went straight to recently deleted messages and there they were 490 text messages that chronicled everything, the entire evolution of their affair. By the first week of November they were full blown sexting. She became enraged and assaulted him, saying she didn't love him anymore and didn't want to be with him. He was beyond hurt, he sacrificed his own happiness for years for her. December and January were brutual, she continued to cheat after telling him and the 17 year old daughter that she was sorry, used bad judgement and was going to focus on repairing their marriage. Her treatment of her husband was absolutely disgusting, she would assault him, broke his Imac twice, the 2nd time she hit him over the head with it. She's the one that caused all of this and she felt she had the right to take out her anger on him because he caught her. She had opened up 3 different snapchat accounts because this was her preferred way to communicate with her affair partner. Her husband had been documenting all of her violence and continued to stand by her hoping she would realize how her actions were destroying him and their children. Most of the arguing and fighting took place in front of the 7 and 5 year olds. By January she was openly cheating in the face of her husband. January 23, 2023, her husband had found a way to have her text messages sent to his phone, that evening she gets home from work, he pours his heart out to her, begging her to stop her affair and recommit to her family. While he is doing this she is texting affair guy lies about her husband, he is telling her how much fun the day before with her was and how he is divorcing his wife and wants her to refinance his house with her, she responds with I need to make plans to leave him and spend the rest of my life with you. The whole time her husband is reading this exchange in real time, he puts his phone down but didn't close out the messaging app, Shanda notices this because the last text sent from her was a blowing kiss emoji. I forgot to mention that in the middle of January her husband got into her snapchat account and found a message from her to him where she proclaimed her love for him. In the beginning of January she was busted by her nurse probation case manager for failing a drug test which resulted in an addtional year tacked on to her probation and mandatory outpatient rehab for 30 days. Anyways after she noticed his phone she got pissed and chased him around the house trying to get his phone from him, grabbing his car keys to prevent him from leaving the house. He shouted for her to stop and not in front of the kids, put the kids to bed and i'll give you my phone he said, but she wouldn't stop. Finally, he grabbed her to get his key from her, he leaves she calls the cops, he is arrested and put in jail for domestic assault. She gets him out the next day, he notices that while he was in jail she spent most of her time on the phone with her affair friend. She tells her husband that she will go to court and not press charges, that was a lie, and on Feb. 3, 2023 she files for divorce telling her husband she was going to have the charges dropped, he knew she was lying because he put a gps tracker in her car and new she as at a divorce lawyers office. February she claimed to have ended her affair, but really it was her lawyer telling her to be more careful with her affair till this is over. Her husband, is devasted by this, but vows to get her to change her mind. she at one point tells him she will stop the divorce and another time says she will pause the divorce to attempt reconciliation. Both these times were straight lies. By this time she is telling her husband "why are you here? No one here cares about you". She became very emotionally abusive after filing for divorce. So much so her husband contemplated taking his own life and actually staged an event to make it look like he was trying, that all backfired though. Then came March 29th, this was the anniversary of their first date, her husband comes home for work, he notices she has regular clothes on and not pajamas, she always changes into pajamas. She starts an argument on purpose for an excuse to leave and stay the night at her moms house. She leaves, he can't sleep at around 3:30am, he has a funny feeling, looks a her email and notices a hotel receipt from 12:21am that morning. He jumps in the car and races to the hotel, sure enough their is her car in the parking lot of a neighboring hotel and their is his car in the hotel parking lot that matches the reciept. Her husband calls the hotel and asks to be transferred to her room, no answer, he goes in the hotel and asks the front desk to try again, no answer, tries one more time. This time someone picks up but says nothing, he cries to her on the phone asking why? He returns to his car and now can tell what room they are in, he waits, 30 minutes later the punk ass 50 yr old walks out of the hotel and to his car, her husband just stares at him, he drives off. Hours later, she returns home packs a bunch of clothes and moves out to stay with her mom. 3 weeks later her husband has to appear in court for the charge, her divorce lawyer shows up and has the case prolonged for 2 more months. She appears to feel bad and returns home but says no affection or sex and she will let him know if she feels anything. Back up to her moving out, her affair friend started sending text messages to her husband threatening him and bringing up things only his wife knew about him, he crossed the line when the affair guy brought up his daughter's name. By this time it wasn't enough to for her to fuck another man and tell her how much she loves him, she had to mentally torment him and talk of their children to this low life piece of shit. Now here we are in May, he tries to give her a good mother;s day and she insults him. Four days later, here comes the phone call from CPS. They interview all 3 children and Shanda and her husband, now this has gotten way out of hand, he plans to comply with CPS, Shanda has no plans to comply, that is where we are at right now. She is a cheating whore who never had the balls to tell her husband that she was unhappy before spreading her legs for someone else. She has mentally destroyed her husband and their kids, she never has shown a bit of remorse, she is looking for an apartment because their house will have to be sold because her husband cannot afford it by himself. The kids will have to lose their house and change schools. Her husband is in financial turmoil and he is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She never put one ounce of energy into saving their marriage and has never apologized for the things she has done. Mediation is not scheduled till July 22nd, so this is far from over, who knows what the hell will happen next. This is a great example of how one person can destroy another persons life and makes you question if you even know your own wife. I will surely post updates as this seems to be far from over. I apologize for this post being in the 3rd person.

They didn’t call back, so I rang them today (29/05/23) and received the following information:
Unable to provide further context, however said person is in a safe location, they have not visited or been inside his property, but they know from a ‘reliable source’ he is safe and well, this organisation is apart of the UK government and they will return at some point and make contact with loved ones.
Have called local hospital, mental health rehab clinic and no one of his name has been admitted.

2023.05.29 22:41 teenworf1984 Grad story - labour fear, big baby, hosp birth, epidural, VERY POSI!

I’m finally getting around to writing my graduation post! My baby is 11 months so it took me a while. I had better write it down now while I remember the details.
I was classified as AMA (38F) and all through my pregnancy, my baby boy was looking really BIG during my scans. As I approached my final weeks my midwife let me know that a predicted larger baby made me eligible to opt for an induction at 39 weeks. I was so big and uncomfortable, I jumped at this! Also, I had an insane fear of tearing and didn’t want to give birth to a double-digit pound baby.
I had a few cervical sweeps at 38 weeks. I hoped this might jumpstart things naturally and I could avoid a medical induction. To my surprise, the sweeps were TOTALLY manageable. I’ve had pap smears that were worse than my sweeps. A few reddit posts had REALLY freaked me out about how awful it might be, but luckily for me it was NBD. It was so exciting and surreal when my midwife told me she was literally touching the top of my baby’s head. I’d been eating 5-10 dates a day for weeks and I was told my cervix was pretty ripe, but not super dilated. That week I went for the longest walks my swollen-ass ankles could handle. I even ate a bag of ghost pepper chips to try and bring on my induction but it just ended up giving me indigestion.
Finally at 39 weeks exactly - a tuesday - I went to the hospital to start the induction process. Before this, I thought induction was just a one time thing I didn’t realize it could take days. I started with the insertion of cervidil (pessary) and got sent back home. I couldn’t really tell if I was having mild contractions or if it was just in my head - if anything was happening, it was definitely mild. I returned the next morning - Wednesday - and got my 2nd cervidil inserted. I went home and a few hours later, after peeing, I noticed the pessary had come out and was in the toilet. It was around this time I started to feel contractions though. Just waves of manageable but STRONG pain. I was mostly on all fours, leaning over my yoga ball when the pain came on. I was really afraid beforehand of the pain aspect of labour, but I felt like I could handle everything at this stage. I couldn’t really move around when the pain was happening and it started to seem impractical to imagine being seated in car while driving to the hospital so I told my husband (and doula) that I was ready to head in to Labour & Delivery.
I was terrified of the stories of being sent back home but they told me I was about 4.5cm dilated and ready to be admitted. Quickly after being admitted I was escorted to my (beautiful! palatial! FREE!) birthing suite. The suite itself was probably about the same size of our 1 bedroom apartment I quickly stripped off and got into the tub just labour through the contractions as my (angel) doula continually poured water over my back. That went on for a couple of hours at least. I was on nitrous (gas & air) only at that point. Of course the intensity and pain of the contractions continued to amplify and I started telling the midwife and nurses that I was ready to fold and get an epidural. My midwife checked my dilation and told me, very gently but seriously, “You are actually in TRANSITION right now. You’re over 9cms so if you want you can just start pushing now and we’ll have your baby pretty quickly!!” I don’t even think I took a full second to consider it, I just immediately said “No, I for sure want an epidural”
I had to get out of the tub and on to the bed in order to get the epidural and even that was an impossible agony but probably 15 mins later I got my drugs and the relief was AMAZING. The epidural kind of brings your dilation down (something else I didn’t know about) so I went back down to 7cms and got to take a power nap (as did my husband). We probably slept for 3 hours or something. Even though I felt no pain, I was absolutely able to move my legs around, get into different positions. It wasn’t like I was dead below the waist (a common misconception that I see on this sub sometimes).
It was early Thursday morning when I was ready to start pushing again. I got pitocin at some point, I guess to get me to dilate after the epidural. The room was FULL of people (residents, ob, pediatrician, midwife, nurses, etc) because I had some meconium in my waters. Something weird that happened was my feet/legs were up on a birthing bar to help me bear down to push but the elevation made me feel really light headed. At one point, everything kind of went dark and I ended up fainting. My heart monitor went a little funny and I just announced “I’m going to pass out” and sort of slumped over. I could kind of hear folks rushing around me but couldn’t move or anything. I did come around again once my feet came down and started pushing again.
By the way, once you get that epidural, pushing feels EASY. I honestly could have pushed out 4 babies. I’ve had spin classes that are more taxing than the epidural pushing. It was fine. My husband wasn’t going to watch what was happening directly because he’s incredibly prone to fainting but I guess he steeled himself in the moment and watched it all. It was really cool. He was able to see our son’s head coming out and even go with him to the baby warmer and put on his first diaper. (Neither of us were interested at all in cutting the cord!) They showed me my placenta afterwards (my doula had to sort of talk me into it) and it was actually really *amazing* to see.
My boy did end up being big - nine pounds, 6 oz - basically exactly what the ultrasounds were predicting. And, yes, I did tear. :( Only 2nd degree, so nothing crazy. It’s all fine now, but a week after the birth I ended up having to go back to the hospital with uncontrolled bleeding. It turns out some internal stitches had come out (how???) and I had to be re-sutchered. Again, I had some nitrous to take the edge off but THAT was so much worse pain that anything that happened during labour. It was almost, like, *blinding* pain.
Anyway, I’m never going to have a second baby. I don’t have enough money plus I’m old, lol. But I **wish** I could be pregnant and give birth just ONE more time, just now because I understand fully what’s on the other side. When I told people that I was nervous about labour pain, tearing, etc they’d always say “BUT YOU GET TO MEET YOUR BABY!” which didn’t really MEAN anything to me. But now I understand what it means to actually meet and fall in love with this little person that you made. I understand how magical it all is! Nobody had more dread about pain than me, and now that I’ve gone through it all… I feel like I could and would do it again! (I mean, again, if I was younger and had more money and space!!!) Every month I fall even more in love with my amazing and perfect kid. It’s funny to think back on all the time I spent worried that I would regret my decision to have a child. But, for me, being a mom is far and away the best decision I ever made. And my birthing experience is the most powerful and beautiful experience I’ve ever had.

2023.05.29 22:34 cjuea Stuck at 22

Hello you wonderful Reddits,
I'm a 22 year old guy and I feel stuck.
To better elaborate: After I graduated high school, my focus was to earn a degree as a biomedical technician and land a job in a local hospital. My reasoning was that this career would provide job security and a good baseline wage, thus creating a "safety net" and a good launching point for exploring other passions. I also wanted to develop a long-term relationship with a girl I was seeing at the time. I've managed to achieve all of those things.
Presently, I am not a fan of the line of work I chose (changed jobs twice now, same type of work, different locations), it wasn't at all what I expected, I make a decent wage for my area $30 hourly but Ive discovered I'm much more passionate about other things. I have been in the same relationship for almost 4 years now, which I am mostly happy with. However, I feel that I am missing so much of life. I've been living at my parents for the entirety of the last four years, saving everything I could to afford a house that I'm not sure I want anymore (lots of work and not much free time in my experience, especially a fixer-upper). Due to the nature of relationships, I'd feel guilty going out every night, or traveling alone to far-off places, but cant afford to pay for my girlfriend.
Most weekends I am just sitting at home, I feel that in an effort to develop myself financially, educationally, and in my relationship, Ive dug myself a hole in which Ive gotten little chances to experience what it is to be a 20-some year old: Overcoming mistakes, making rash financial purchases that may not be beneficial but ultimately provide great memories, and getting out often to make new friends, all things I am a stranger to. I'm stuck in a job that requires an hour commute one way, no benefits, I'd like to quit but I got the job through my cousin, and would hate to disappoint him. Plus I have no other options that earn me that kind of money.
Would anyone have suggestions as to how I could change things up going forwards? Or perhaps how to tackle one or two of my concerns?

2023.05.29 22:32 mylifeisajokelol123 What is it like to work ED holds (as a FT position, not a float)

This hospital is a large Level 1, like 700+ beds, so they’re one of the busiest regionally. Their ED is of course always busy so I imagine they have a lot of “holds.” But I thought ER holds were something nurses floated to when the unit was overflowed, not a designated full-time unit.
What exactly would you do on this floor? And is it a good spot for a new grad, or would all the skills like foleys, EKGs, IVs etc. already be placed in ER?

2023.05.29 22:28 Aisling_The_Sapphire Subnautica: The Definitive No-Spoilers Guide For New Players

Updated May 2023
I recently changed Reddit accounts and it's been about a year, so it seemed prudent to repost this for visibility. :)

Link to the Below Zero guide - This is an interactive map of the crater. However, be warned that it will show the general location of things you need to find. This can be toggled but if you have zero point of reference for the places mentioned in this guide, this map should provide one.

General tips are at the bottom, however, they rely on you having played at least part of the way through the game so I don't recommend checking them until at least part 3, AKA "Going Traveling"

Subnautica is a game primarily about exploring your environment while overcoming the trepidation that the game sets up in you over doing so. Although there isn't a perfect guide to being able to clear the game, there also isn't an unambiguous path of progression for the player, either.
Consequently new players often find themselves at an impasse in terms of progression and where to go. The following is a no-nonsense, straight to the point guide on how to progress, but it's not a bible. You can do most of this just by exploring and wandering around.
A blind playthrough is critical to the first time player experience. This is often true of every game but for Subnautica it makes or breaks the whole story - you need to have no idea what the hell is going on the first time you clear the game. If you spoil it for yourself you will regret it, please believe me in this. This guide is meant to give you a nudge when you find you don't know where to go next, it's not really meant as a walkthrough, even though it can be used as one. Do yourself a favor friends, don't go wandering /subnautica or the wiki too much and this guide will not lead you astray. It is written specifically for brand new players.

The Beginning

When you first arrive on 4546b, you find yourself with basically nothing. You're hungry, thirsty, your lifepod is broken and your cookies are gone. The Aurora is burning (and you nearly did too) but despite all that, you're alive and this planet is about to get some Ryley in it.
The environment around you has most of what you need to get started. The metal scrap strewn around the shallows provides an easy source of Titanium while you can break limestone and sandstone to get the minerals you need for your starting tools. You'll want the quartz you find for glass.
Although you have a number of options for making equipment, at this stage I don't recommend using resources for the air pump or pipes. Truth is they don't really have much use; they create a breathing line from the surface for when you're diving, but they're expensive and there's better alternatives in your near future.
Once you have a scanner and knife, take the time to scan everything you can. All the local wildlife can be scanned and most of the flora.
Your objective at this point is to build a repair gun, knife, seaglide, flashlight and scanner.

Branching Out

Now that you've got your basic tools and you can get around a little, it's time to begin exploring. At this point you've seen the deeper waters on the edges of the kelp forest.
It's time to go take a look.
The red grassy plains have what you need to progress to deeper waters. You'll want to explore the wrecks there. There are four grassy plains surrounding the shallows at compass points and cave systems exist in three of them which will become relevant later, but are largely out of your reach for now. It is out here that you will find fragments necessary for an important task you must complete soon. Raiding the aurora will require the laser cutter you learn to make here. You'll also want a propulsion cannon, which you can find the fragments to near the side of the Aurora. DO NOT GO AROUND THE BACK OF THE AURORA. SERIOUSLY. You are not prepared for that level of giggling insanity yet.
By now you've fixed the radio and may have triggered the sunbeam event, in which case you will want to go follow that. Give yourself the full span of time to go to the island and explore unless you'd prefer to explore after the event, but don't let yourself get distracted by what you find there and miss the ship arriving. The signals you've been getting are important prompts and need to be checked out when possible, so make sure you take the time to do that. Also, when you go to either island DO NOT PARK YOUR SEAMOTH NEAR THE BEACH. DO NOT PARK YOUR SEAMOTH NEAR THE BEACH. There is a real risk of it phasing through the ground and becoming inaccessible and then you'll end up on this subreddit asking how to get it back like the other 5 guys a week. Seriously.
Also note that bringing an ion cube to the top of the mountains caves will let you do something interesting up there, but I won't be specific. A scanner room at this spot is ideal not just to track the reaper leviathan on the eastern side of the island but there is quite a lot of shale and lithium here as well, which is probably something you're gonna want.

Going traveling

At this point you should have a seamoth, your basic tools, a laser cutter, propulsion cannon and lead suit. You are prepared. It's time to go to the Aurora... but only if you've gotten the communication from Alterra with the captains door code. Otherwise, you must wait for that radio event. You can go explore the ship anyways of course, but not having the code means you can't get into the captains room, requiring you to go back and get it later. So it's up to you. You can open the door anyways if you get the code off the internet or something but since the game gives it to you anyways, you can always wait for the prompt. If not, the door code is 2679
If you have a cyclops I don't recommend taking it, since reapers hang out at the front and back ends of the ship. However, a seamoth is small enough to fit through the broken superstructure of the ship at the front and thus avoid this danger. There are two ways to access the ship and although it seems impossible, you CAN in fact climb up to access the open one. Otherwise, you can use the prop cannon to move the debris out of the way of the door near water level. Be sure to take the time to explore inside and use the carry-all bags to leave stuff you want to keep from the ship out the front so you can come back and pick it all up later. There's lots of useful stuff in there.
As a side note here, the leech-like things that annoy you in the reactor room are called Bleeders. I hate Bleeders personally, but I noted that if you grab one with the propulsion cannon and fling it into the wall out of sheer spite then other bleeders will be attracted to the body, which makes grabbing and doing the same to them quite easy. Clearing the entire room of those little #*([email protected]'s only takes a couple minutes.
You can get the codes for various rooms inside from the PDA's you find. Also note that some doors can only be opened once you repair them. Sometimes the Aurora glitches and these repair sections don't work but because the ship has two entrances, you can always go around the back to clear the whole thing, which is... annoying. If you don't mind being patient, leaving the Aurora and doing other things for awhile will reset the wreck, allowing you to come back later and potentially be able to repair the doors then.
The codes for the ship are:
Cabin No. 1: 1869
Captain's Quarters: 2679
Cargo Bay: 1454
Lab Access: 6483

Time to go down

With the Aurora repaired you have the ability to wear things other than the lead suit, so it's time to chuck that in the trash 'cuz you won't need it again. It's time to get the outer wrecks in the zones beyond the shallows and hoo boy ain't that gonna be an experience.
The cyclops is your friend here. But what's this, you don't have a cyclops? Well, that's okay. You may have found one of the engine fragments on the aurora in the cargo bay but if you missed it, it's not really a big deal. Your next objective to build one is to go explore mushroom forest and the underwater floating islands for the fragments you'll need. If you've been following your radio signals you've probably been to the aurora rendezvous point by now, but if not, take the time to go thoroughly explore that island. One of the PDAs you need to find the next place is not at the degasi base, but on one of the paths of the island near an arch of rock. You'll need to explore the island thoroughly to find it. Make sure to scan everything and bring back plant samples if you have a seabase. You can use plant pots to keep food trees on your cyclops for easy access to food without worrying about curing everything all the time.
Once you have the cyclops, you need to take the time to upgrade your seamoth to depth so you can explore the various wrecks, supplement your PDA database and establish yourself properly for long-term operations. At this point in the game you should be aiming for or already have:
A seabase, even a basic one. A couple corridors with lockers are invaluable for storage and operations and the scanner room is MISSION CRITICAL. If you haven't built one yet, get on that!
A seamoth, either at or being upgraded to 500m depth
Knife, flashlight, repair gun, seaglide, scanner, laser cutter, propulsion or repulsion cannon, rebreather
Be sure to check everything, then check it again! It's easy to miss things on the island. Be sure to check the buildings on the tops of the hills there too. Although it would be nice to be able to plant land beacons (hint hint, Unknown Worlds), it's not feasible for marking out the precursor gate on the floating island so unfortunately, it's not of much use unless you have your base on one island or the other. I don't recommend the floating island for this for reasons which will become apparent later in the game.

Looking into the abyss

If you've explored most of or all of the wrecks and no longer have missing technology, it's time to go deeper. If you've been following your PDA signals you need to check out the degasi bases and follow their story, as they lead you to a large, deep cave which is the path to deeper places you need to explore.
There are several inlets to the place you need to reach. Northern Bulb Zone where it meets Mountains has a large entrance. Blood Kelp Zone and Trench both have entrances. The last one is in deep grand reef, where the final Degasi base is. I personally recommend either Deep Grand Reef or Bulb Zone but the latter has the most accessibility.
Raiding the final Degasi Base before exploring this cave system will get you the orange precursor key which you'll need to access something hidden at the southern end of the caves near blood kelp trench's entrance. While working down here I strongly recommend making liberal use of beacons as navigational guides if you're new to this place. It is VERY confusing and looks very same-y if you haven't spend a lot of time here.
Deep inside the caves you'll come upon a chamber with a massive skull sitting on a chunk of land in the middle and access to a slightly lower part of the cave system which is not green. This is the Cove Tree Cave and the brine there will not hurt you the way the green brine does. This leaves you able to free dive there to gather materials without needing to rely on your prawn.
This chamber with the skull is, in fact, the central chamber of Lost River. It is an excellent place for building a scanner station and the entire area is ludicrously rich in resources. It's a perfect place to stock up and catch up any upgrades, tools or devices you may be lacking so far. You'll want the resource stocks for later and honestly, it's just a really cool place to have a base in general.
The Disease Research Facility is in the north-eastern arm of Lost River, accessible through the Bulb Zone entrance. A juvenile ghost leviathan guards the path but as with most leviathans, operating in silent running and staying above or below it while sticking to the cave walls will get you by without any issue. If they do notice you, just pop a decoy, go full speed for about 5-8 seconds and then drop the engine to low and stay in silent running until you get far enough for the big ugly to stop bothering you.
The southern part of Lost River holds a large chamber with a ghost leviathan juvenile and houses another rather large skeleton. This area in particular is rich in large ore deposits and crystallized sulfur that you'll be needing for some big upgrades.
By the way, remember the cyclops shield? By now you're probably noticing that using the auxiliary functions on the cyclops eats a lot of power. Redundant power cells are your friend and if you feel you're worried about power costs while exploring, you lose nothing by having a buttload of spare power cells. It can pay off, being able to spam the shield for awhile and run away.
You'll want that shield for what's coming next.

Once More Unto The Deep

By now you've probably explored Lost River a bit and you're wondering where to go from here. If you've built a scanner room in the central chamber, you'll have noticed that the scanner, when at full range, shows a chamber below Lost River.
This is the inactive lava zone and it is here your answers lay.
You have two access points to reach this chamber. The North-east arm past the disease research facility and the cove tree caves. Both entrances are equally difficult to get through but the first one feels more open, if you don't mind the ghost leviathan circling around above the opening.
This chamber is rich with even more valuable resources, if you somehow haven't got enough already. The cove tree cave entrance leads to the western part of the ILZ chamber. The North-east entrance leads to the north edge of the chamber. The chamber itself is rather oval-shaped, with the western edge of it relatively empty and the eastern part containing a massive lava bubble.
If you wander around down here long enough the PDA will prompt you to take a look at that bubble a bit more closely. You will need two purple precursor keys to access the facility inside. Now that you're down here you'll notice there's a fair number of warpers, crimson rays (who are harmless) and leech-like things which will attach to the hull of your ship and drain power. That sounds like a problem, doesn't it?
Don't worry though, we got you covered. Once you're down here, go grab some kyanite and you can build the cyclops thermal reactor which pretty much eliminates the whole running out of power problem. The shield is a great way to get the leeches off your hull at the same time.
As for the leviathan, the sea dragon isn't actually a whole lot of threat. It might spit fire at you and is capable of picking up and biting the prawn but will mostly ignore you if you don't go hanging out in front of it.
With that said, treat it like any other leviathan while in the cyclops. Drive slow, keep an eye on it and if it gets curious, drop a decoy and move away ASAP. Cutting your engines once you've gotten a little distance will almost always make them lose interest.

But Wait, There's More!

If you've explored the inner depths of the lava bubble, then you have the blue key, ion battery plans and have opened the portal to the QEP. Great! Now coming down here in the prawn isn't a big deal and you don't have to drive the cyclops all the way down here to go grab resources. A small scanner base down here would be great for quickly finding what you need.
As you can probably guess, there's an even deeper chamber than this, which is the active lava zone. You can find the entrance by following the lava flows around the ILZ and keeping an eye on the floor. You'll find a large space big enough for the cyclops to lower down into.
Down here you'll find 2 sea dragons to avoid, so don't you get conservative with your power. By now you'll probably have built ion power cells and those can run your shield and sonar together for a full 5 minutes with silent running going so don't be shy about using them!
Getting into the alien base down here will require two blue keys, one for accessing the facility, the other for accessing the inner facility. It is here you will find the ion cube fabricator which requires the prawn. You can use this to open the warp gates in the facility. Six ion cubes in total are required for this. Four for the warp gates on the upper floor and two in the Sea Emperors tank. One of these leads back to the upper floor, if you find you're struggling to get back out. This gate in particular is about halfway up the tank at the back and sits on a large ledge. An ion cube is provided to activate it, giving you a way to walk out of the tank if you find you're struggling to get out.
And... that's pretty much it, really. After that encounter you'll know where to go and what to do. The paths laid out for you in the final facility lead you to the places you need to go to find the things you require.

2023.05.29 22:26 SpecificAlone1926 Things to help my terminally ill father fight boredom

My father was recently diagnosed with cancer, he is currently in a hospital that is over an hours drive away and we are trying to get him transfered to a palliative care facility closer to home. I'm wondering what some good suggestions would be to keep him entertained for the times he is alone. My sister and I visit as much as we can and split it so at least one of us sees him every day. More family will be flying in to visit him soon. We got him a tablet so he can watch the baseball games(he really enjoys it) and some puzzle books. Hes not much of a reader. Now the cancer is in his brain and has greatly affexted mobility and motor skills, also cognition is at the point where we have to enact POA. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

2023.05.29 22:22 Theyul1us Aliens cant understand metaphors or tv shows

Nathaniel looked into the eyes of the reptilian companion that was accross the table. He reached with one hand to grab hers
-you know... if anyone told me back in the day that I would fall for snake alien I would have called them crazy. But here we are now
Her partner, a snake alien that went by the name of Selenthiss, laughed
-here we are now, as you said. Was it weird for your friends?
-kinda- he admited "me being a captain of earth and you a commander of Nike... but I dont care. Everytime im not here I die to be wi-
he could not finish the sentence. Her partner stood up so fast that she flipped the table
-No wait its a missu- selenthiss grabbed him and rushed as fast as she could to the doctor's office, breaking the door
the doctor, a gonkosian, secured his fishbowl looking helmet and pointed to the hospital bed, in wich Nathaniel was promptly thrown
-Have you been feeling ill lately, captain?- grabbing a light and pointing it at ther eyes of the bewildered captain
-I never felt better doc. Im just in love... allright, what now- noticing how, somehow, how the plasma face of the doctor changed expressions
-by the sun, its worse than what I expected
selenthiss grabbed Nathaniel's hand so hard that the human could feel his bones breaking
-according to the human documentary, "futurama", falling in love is a strange type of dissease. The human called Fry replied that being in love is like "making an idiot out of yourself". No cure has been found yet by that strange human condition
-allright allright, thats it- standing up -doc, futurama is not a documentary... as much as earth looks like it nowadays. What I said about dying was just a metaphor. Its just that I really miss Selenthiss when im not with her
-so... you will be allright?- said the reptilian alien
-yeah.- he laughed -its because of this things that I love you. You really take my breath away- Nathaniel inmediatly regretted saying that, as Selenthiss squeezed his hand again, this time definitely breaking a finger
-its worse than I imagined then. According to the works of the great Doctor Gregory House, its lupus
Nathaniel could only sigh, taking a mental note to both use less metaphors in the future and kill his friend Otto for showing human television to the gonkosians
-you two can go suck a lemon

2023.05.29 22:17 Jynandtonics Has anyone tried Magnesium L-Threonate to offset akathisia?

As magnesium L-threonate is the form of magnesium that can best elevate magnesium levels in the brain I am hoping this particular form will have a great impact on the akathisia. It gets delivered tomorrow and I'm sort of hanging on to this hope that it can cure me. Would love to hear anyone else who's tried it?
Just some background on my current akathisia issue... I went to the ER Monday May 22nd for severe stomach pain. I get stomach strictures and severe pain a few times a year thanks to a stomach surgery in 2017. This wasn't my usual local hospital as we were out of town but I gave them my background and list of meds. Doctor told me he was giving me something for the stomach pain as he started to push the medicine into my IV. He didn't tell me the name or even what type of med it was. I assumed it was Dicyclomine which is a muscle relaxer that works well on stomach issues and is usually what they give me in the ER.
Turns out he gave me 2.5mg of Droperidol. Which is confusing on many levels. I wasn't complaining of any nausea or vomiting. That dose is on the higher end. I've learned that a starting dose would generally be 0.625mg and it's usually given in a drip not a push. Droperidol is also not supposed to be given unless other meds were unsuccessful. He was monitoring my heart rate at least.
As soon as it went in the IV my stomach pain stopped but the worst feeling I've ever had in my life came over. I wanted to rip the IV out and leave the hospital immediately. I couldn't get comfortable. I couldn't stop moving my legs. I wanted to crawl out of my skin. No one asked me about any of these symptoms or mentioned akathisia. I still didn't even know the name of what they gave me.
They finally released me and an awful night began. Finally I managed to drive myself to a motel, rent a room, take some of my rx Ambien that I thankfully had with me, and get some sleep. The worst came the next morning. I needed to get up and get a shower and leave since the motel had an 11am checkout. I couldn't do it. I had no idea what was wrong. I just stayed in bed wrapped in blankets, shaking, crying, moving my legs restless. I forced myself into the shower thinking it may help but ended up jumping out halfway through with soap still all over me and practically throwing myself back into the bed crying the whole time. I thought I was losing my mind.
I finally called the front desk and asked if I could extend my stay another night and thank God they were able to charge my card on file without me coming in. My husband was expecting me and I had to call him next and tell him, "I'm so sorry, I know you need me there, I don't know what's wrong with me I think I'm having a nervous break down I can't get out of bed." thank God as well that he was so understanding and took care of everything then showed up with some benadryl and magnesium.
We still did not know it was akathisia but benadryl and magnesium are good for anxiety so that's what we tried. He logged on to the mychart app to see what they had given me then looked droperidol up and saw all the info about akathisia. That's when we finally figured it out. He called my psychiatrist (thank God I see her every month anyway for adhd) and she was able to do a telehealth visit and see what bad shape I was in. She called in Ativan 3x a day for 2 weeks and I see her for another appointment when they run out.
I luckily had a lot of "experimental" type meds because I've been trying to biohack some other health related issues and I think they came in handy. One is an injection combo I get from Unchained Sarms called sweet dreams that has 100mg GABA, 50MG Theanine, 100mg Taurine, and 100mg magnesium per ML. It never did help me sleep enough for me to stop taking the ambien so it was just sitting around mostly unused in what I (jokingly) call my pulp fiction kit but I believe it came in really handy for the akathisia. 1ml of that pinned in my thigh and my legs calmed down immediately. I also had some BPC157 intranasal and some nad+ intranasal and I think they helped a little as well.
The thing is... It's been a week today and while I'm not as bad as I was I'm still a long way from my normal self. Really hoping the delivery of magnesium threonate is the cure I need. If it's helped anyone else let me know.

2023.05.29 22:11 DouggieMohammadJones Behind the Bastards' first episode on Vince McMahon really made me realise how bad of a father Fritz Von Erich was.

The host of the podcast basically said that Fritz made Joe Jackson look like a good father, and if everything covered in the episode is true, then that's a very fair summary of how bad Fritz was.
Starting off from the time David, Kerry, and Kevin were just adolescents, he would immediately follow up their sports training after school with 3 hours of wrestling training every night, even though they just wanted to focus on high school and sports.
David was exhibiting a lot of bad health signs before he died, and people outside the Von Erich family insist it was a drug overdose that Fritz tried to sweep under the rug. Fritz is basically the guy that got them hooked on every drug under the sun so that they could perform night after night after night. So him insisting David wrestle while he was in bad health AFTER maybe being the reason he was in bad health to begin with pretty much directly caused David's death. After David's death and at his funeral, Fritz hiked up the prices for coloured photographs of David to 10 dollars because he knew people would buy it. Just pimping out his dead son basically.
When Kerry had his motorcycle accident that required the amputation of part of his foot, he was whisked away to the hospital for major surgery, and right after the procedure was done, Fritz took him away to do a wrestling show that injured his foot even more and caused him to require a bone fusion that made the rest of his wrestling career horribly painful. It's speculated that the drugs in Kerry's system was the reason for his motorcycle accident, which would indirectly damn Fritz because Fritz is the one who encouraged his boys to get hooked on painkillers so they could perform. Kerry would end his life in 1993 after nearly a decade of horrible pain from the injury.
Mike Von Erich, who by many accounts never wanted to be a wrestler at all and was pushed into it by his father, underwent a shoulder injury that required surgery. In Tel Aviv, Israel, he underwent surgery, and then contracted toxic shock syndrome which nearly killed him, gave him permanent brain damage, and caused him to drop from over 200 pounds to somewhere around 150 pounds. A week after he beat the toxic shock syndrome and began his recovery, Fritz wheeled him out in front of a crowd of people to announce his return to wrestling. Mike was slurring his words, sitting in a wheelchair, and obviously could never actually return to wrestling. It was just adding more humiliation and pain to him when he was barely making it as-is. He would later get into a car accident himself, and took his own life after failing to live up to Fritz's expectations. By some tellings of the story, he left a note to his younger brother Chris, as well as a bottle of painkillers (the same thing he would use to kill himself), saying to use them when the time came. The reason for this is he suspected Fritz would push him the same way he pushed all of his other sons.
Chris Von Erich was called up a few years after the deaths of Mike and David to fill in for the family and continue their legacy. The problem with Chris is that he was a very small man, from a lifetime of illness and taking prednisone to deal with asthma and upper respiratory conditions. This made his bones very brittle and he couldn't even take normal wrestling moves without it seriously hurting him. Like his brother Mike, he also experienced severe depression and drug issues, and felt immense pressure to perform for his father, which culminated in his suicide in 1991. Kevin found his body after discovering the suicide note.
Kevin Von Erich is the only son of the 6 to make it out and have a relatively normal life, but even he has dealt with a lot. When his father was entering dementia, he pointed a gun at Kevin's head and threatened to kill him. This is probably not really Fritz's fault, but I think it's a testament to how he could be controlling and refused to get help the way he also refused to get his sons help when they needed it most.
I think it's under-appreciated how much of the tragedy of the family is a direct result of Fritz's machinations. Often it barely gets talked about, if at all. Even the Dark Side of the Ring episode pulled punches about how involved he was in all of this. Grooming teenaged boys into being indentured servants to him, basically. And most of them died. It's horrible.

2023.05.29 22:03 Minute_Story377 Are my grandma and my grandpa toxic?

Now, my grandparents have done a lot. They have spoilt us with toys, gifts, and love, but we always get in fights anytime else.
I’ve lived with my grandparents my entire life because of my mom’s and my dad’s drug habits. My mom has gotten better now, though. When I get to talk about my interests, my grandma always says I’ll make no friends. That no one likes what I like (I like science). Everyone I’ve met so far was interested, though. She always says I smell bad. It got to the point I was washing 5 times conditioneshampoo and body wash. I was “the best smelling person in school” but as soon as I got home she said I smelled so bad I made her want to vomit. When I said that the amount of gifts they give me won’t help our relation ship, my grandma said she’ll “take everything away then and I’ll only have white shirts and shorts to wear from then on.” Every time I have a problem it’s pushed to the side. “I want to get my room done”, I said, then it’s pushed off and now it’s dirty cause they don’t allow me to vacuum. I have an ant problem now, and I don’t know what to do. Bugs died behind my dressers and the ants got to them. I was constantly ridiculed for my weight and looks when my sister was borderline diabetic (and I wasn’t even close). They gave her special treatment. Any time I gained muscle my grandma would make fun of anything I didn’t gain. She said that because of my confession to my ED, they may take me out of the house if they “act out of line” and it’s all “my fault” I am disabled but she won’t let me get a disability thing signed even though I have a hard time walking, talking, and processing (FND). Plus stomach problems now. She believes I’m not “disabled enough”. Any time I mention the things I do have she still dismisses them. My sister and I may have Ethlers Danlos Syndrome 4 but she somehow doesn’t understand that we could get it cause it’s dominant and she has it and my mom has it? My sister and I have the symptoms. (Hyperflexability and artery/digestive problems) She keeps threatening to hang herself and she did that today when I mentioned that she told me I shouldn’t eat because I “ate yesterday”. I developed an eating disorder (because of my chronic stomach issues) a month ago and was in the hospital because of it and she keeps shaming me for telling them about my “fake” problem. When I got over my stomach issue, I wanted to be more strict on my eating to make sure I was helping my body. I was planning on eating 5 times a day (smaller portions). She said “I eat once a day and I’m still fat, so why should you eat 5 times a day?”. One day, I went to beg her about getting my room done and she lunged at me. When I started crying, I guess she heard me and decided to throw me off the couch and say I’m “fake crying”. I called the police on my self because I felt suicidal and while I was on the phone she said that if I didn’t give it to her, she’d “report it stolen” to get me in more trouble. When they released me, they took all my stuff away and I had to sleep on the floor. they recorded me as I poisoned myself and refused to take me to the hospital. When I walked closer to my grandma she pretended I hit her and said “now you’re going to be arrested” and called the police. The police knew she was lying. They’ve been preventing me from talking to my dad. My dad has custody agreements (but he’s in another state). When I started to call him for movies and get in touch with my half siblings she made me block him on everything. She said she’ll take my phone if I talk to them again. Isn’t that illegal? Turns out they physically abused my mom when she was young. My mom was sick for 15 years. When I make attempts, they mock them. My mom is now trying to go to court for custody of us, because I told her what’s been happening at home. I have been hiding my true feelings about this situation to my grandma. I don’t know if my mom is financially stable for us, though.

2023.05.29 22:03 gsusugsy Het toepassen van een taxonomie in SharePoint: Een efficiënte manier om je site te organiseren

Beste collega,
In deze reddit post/blog wil ik graag met jullie bespreken hoe je een taxonomie kunt toepassen op je SharePoint-site. Het gebruik van een taxonomie is een geweldige manier om je site georganiseerd en overzichtelijk te houden, vooral als het gaat om het categoriseren van specifieke documenten. Als voorbeeld zal ik laten zien hoe je een taxonomie kunt toevoegen aan contracten, zodat je contracten gemakkelijk kunt categoriseren op basis van hun functie. Laten we meteen aan de slag gaan met het stappenplan:
Stap 1: Navigeer naar de documentenpagina
Ga naar je SharePoint-site en zoek aan de linkerkant van de pagina naar de lijst met opties. Klik op "Documenten" en navigeer vervolgens naar de map "Contracten" waarin je de taxonomie wilt toepassen. Zorg er ook voor dat je de weergave hebt aangepast volgens de eerdere instructies om het overzicht te behouden.
Stap 2: Voeg een nieuwe kolom toe
Om de taxonomie toe te passen, moet je een nieuwe kolom toevoegen. Klik op de optie om een nieuwe kolom toe te voegen en je ziet een lijst met verschillende beschikbare kolommen. Scrol naar beneden totdat je de optie "Beheerde metagegevens" ziet staan.
Stap 3: Geef de kolom een naam en selecteer een termen set
Geef de kolom een passende naam die de categorie of het aspect van de documenten weergeeft waarop je wilt categoriseren. Je kunt ook een beschrijving toevoegen, maar dit is niet verplicht. Selecteer hetzelfde type dat je eerder hebt gekozen en klik op "Selecteren" bij de termen set.
Stap 4: Kies de juiste termen set
In ons voorbeeld willen we een functie toevoegen, dus klik op "Personen" en zoek de functie die het beste past bij jouw behoeften. Het gebruik van een taxonomie met een hiërarchische structuur stelt je in staat om klantgerelateerde documenten te organiseren en classificeren op basis van functie. Hierdoor wordt informatie gestructureerd en logisch georganiseerd, wat het begrijpelijk en bruikbaar maakt. Door gebruik te maken van de taxonomie in SharePoint kun je klantgerelateerde documenten consistent opslaan en beheren.
Stap 5: Geniet van een georganiseerde SharePoint-site
Gefeliciteerd! Je hebt nu een taxonomie toegepast op je SharePoint-site, specifiek op de map "Contracten". Hierdoor kun je contracten gemakkelijk categoriseren op basis van hun functie. Dit helpt bij het organiseren en snel terugvinden van documenten, waardoor je tijd bespaart en efficiënter kunt werken.
Ik hoop dat deze reddit post/blog je duidelijke instructies heeft gegeven over hoe je een taxonomie kunt toepassen in SharePoint. Als je nog vragen hebt, sta ik klaar om je te helpen. Geniet van een georganiseerde en gestroomlijnde SharePoint-ervaring!
Met vriendelijke groet,

2023.05.29 22:00 gsusugsy Hoe maak je een nieuwe weergave in SharePoint: Een handige gids

Beste collega's,
In deze reddit post/blog wil ik graag met jullie bespreken hoe je een nieuwe weergave kunt maken en aanpassen in SharePoint. Het creëren van een nieuwe weergave is een handige manier om je mappen georganiseerd en overzichtelijk te houden, waardoor alles gemakkelijk toegankelijk is. Laten we meteen aan de slag gaan met het stappenplan:
Stap 1: Ga naar de SharePoint-site
Om te beginnen, ga je naar de SharePoint-site waar je de nieuwe weergave wilt maken. Dit kan de startpagina van je team- of projectsite zijn.
Stap 2: Navigeer naar de documentenpagina
Eenmaal op de site, zoek je aan de linkerkant van de pagina naar een lijst genaamd "Documenten" en klik je erop. Hierdoor kom je op de pagina terecht waar al je documenten worden weergegeven.
Stap 3: Maak een nieuwe weergave aan
Op de documentenpagina zie je rechtsboven een knop met de tekst "Alle documenten" en een pijltje. Klik op deze knop en er verschijnt een lijst met verschillende opties. Kies hier de optie "Nieuwe weergave aanmaken".
Stap 4: Geef de nieuwe weergave een naam
Nu komt het leuke gedeelte! Geef de nieuwe weergave een passende naam, zoals "Contracten" voor de contractenmap die je wilt organiseren. Neem even de tijd om een goede en duidelijke naam te kiezen.
Stap 5: Bewerk de weergave
Nadat je de nieuwe weergave hebt aangemaakt, klik je weer rechtsboven op de knop "Weergave" en selecteer je deze keer "Weergave bewerken". Hiermee kun je instellen welke informatie je wilt zien in je nieuwe weergave.
Stap 6: Selecteer de gewenste kolommen
Je ziet nu een lijst met alle beschikbare kolommen die je kunt toevoegen aan je weergave. Maak je geen zorgen als de lijst lang is, neem gewoon de tijd om de juiste kolommen te selecteren die relevant zijn voor de weergave die je wilt creëren. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan kolommen zoals "Datum gewijzigd", "Auteur" of andere relevante metagegevens.
Stap 7: Opslaan en felicitaties!
Scroll naar beneden en klik op "Wijzigingen opslaan" zodra je klaar bent met het selecteren van de gewenste kolommen. Gefeliciteerd! Je hebt nu een overzichtelijke SharePoint-site met een nieuwe weergave die je hebt gemaakt.
Hoewel dit een handige manier is om je SharePoint-site professioneler te maken, moet je er rekening mee houden dat je de weergave handmatig moet aanpassen voor elke map om de juiste kolommen te zien. Dit kan een beetje tijdrovend zijn, maar het zal zeker de moeite waard zijn als het je helpt om je documenten gemakkelijker te vinden en te beheren.
Ik hoop dat deze reddit post/blog je duidelijke instructies heeft gegeven over hoe je een nieuwe weergave kunt maken en aanpassen in SharePoint. Als je nog vragen hebt, aarzel dan niet om ze te stellen. Veel succes en geniet van je georganiseerde SharePoint-ervaring!
Met vriendelijke groet,

2023.05.29 22:00 fillyagoda Jobs in Brooklyn

Soon to be new grad here hoping to live/work in Brooklyn.
Job openings anywhere in Brooklyn seem to be scarce. I would be eternally grateful if someone could point me in the direction of any openings I might have missed or provide any general tips for my search. Open to opportunities outside of the hospital as well.
Thanks in advance!

2023.05.29 21:55 OBLIVXIONN Loss of appetite?

I haven’t been diagnosed with endo, but I have been referred to a gynaecologist at the hospital in the next few weeks to try and figure out what’s up.
I’ve always suffered with painful periods, my whole life, but regular periods. I’m 25 now.
From 23-24 I was on Yasmin after a false-positive pregnancy scare. When I was on Yasmin my periods were like clockwork; they’d come every Tuesday (4 days after I started my pill break), wouldn’t be painful at all, and would only last 3-4 days. Towards the end of my time on Yasmin though, my periods started 1-2 days later than they usually would. I decided to come off it because I knew I wanted to start a family in the next few years and wanted to give my body a chance to get back into its natural rhythm.
The first 3 months were okay, my period was still fairly predictable, though I never tracked it. My last two periods have been VERY irregular. I’ve started tracking them now, but I’m pretty sure my last two cycles have been 35-40+ days. I was adamant I was pregnant last month, even my boyfriend was concerned, but my period showed up eventually (albeit 2 weeks late).
I’m currently on day 30, and this cycle I’ve suffered with a lot of unfortunate events. Constipation, pain, bloating, diarrhoea at one point, spotting (spotting has happened my last two cycles), bleeding after sex (sometimes quite heavily, like I once bled for 24 hours, I thought it was my period. I was wrong), debilitating UTIs, HSV1 flare ups, and most recently, appetite loss.
The appetite loss is really concerning for me, because I usually have quite a big appetite. But I don’t get any hunger pangs at all, literally zero. I barely eat 1000 calories a day, and I’ve lost 4kg in the last 1-2 months. It’s starting to impact my energy levels.
I take a multivitamin, because I was diagnosed with folate deficiency anaemia last year (this multivitamin has 400% folic acid), so I’m at least getting some sort of nutrition.
I was just wondering if any of you have experienced appetite loss? It’s not because I’m currently in pain (although I have been in and out of pain with cramping, UTI, and HSV1). It’s just… my appetite has completely evaporated?
What’s your experience?
