2023.05.29 01:51 Swol_Bamba Chat GPT recreates the story told in the Blink-182 smash hit 'Ben Wah Balls'

In a small, picturesque town nestled amidst rolling hills, a vibrant community went about their daily routines. Among them was a sprightly old man known to all as Grandpa Joe. Every morning, as the sun peeked over the horizon, Joe would emerge from his cozy cottage, whistling a cheery tune that danced upon the gentle breeze.
His days were filled with simple pleasures and warm companionship. However, fate had a peculiar plan in store for Joe. One fateful morning, as he strolled along the cobblestone streets, his path intersected with that of a young woman. There was an instant connection, an enchantment that set their hearts aflutter.
Love bloomed swiftly, catching Joe by surprise. He couldn't help but be swept away by the unique charm of this woman. She was unlike anyone he had ever encountered, and he was captivated by her magnetic presence. Little did Joe know, their connection ran deeper than he could have imagined.
As their relationship deepened, peculiar moments began to unfold. During their tender kisses, the woman would inadvertently brush her fingers against Joe's beard, causing her heart to ache with a longing for her absent father. It was in these moments that the woman's true emotions surfaced, reminding her of the emptiness she felt without him.
One day, Joe, consumed by an uncontainable surge of love, found himself singing a heartfelt song from the depths of his being. However, the surge of emotion also brought forth an unexpected bodily response, which he concluded with a resounding fart. The woman, taken aback by the symphony of sound and fragrance, suddenly recognized the song.
A flicker of recognition danced in her eyes as she recounted a childhood memory of her father, who had left her and her mother years ago. Her father had a unique habit of combining flatulence and song, a peculiar concoction that only he could create. In that moment, the woman's heart whispered a truth that seemed impossible to believe.
Overwhelmed by curiosity and a deep need for confirmation, the woman beseeched Joe to recreate the song that had triggered her revelation. In a flurry of anticipation, they hurried out the door, determined to seek the truth that lingered on the cusp of their awareness.
With a mixture of trepidation and excitement, the woman carefully studied Joe's posterior, searching for a mark that would validate her suspicions. And there it was, etched within the folds of time and memory, the unmistakable sign that her heart had longed for. Tears welled in her eyes as she embraced Joe tightly, whispering the truth that had been revealed.
"I was just a little girl when my father left my mother," she began, her voice tinged with both sorrow and relief. "He possessed a unique talent for singing accompanied by the sound of his flatulence. It was this very song you sang today that he used to sing to me. Now, by the undeniable evidence before me, I know that you are my father. You use Ben Wah Balls."
Amidst the profound realization, the atmosphere became charged with a mix of emotions. Laughter mingled with tears, as the joy of reunion intertwined with the sorrow of separation. The woman and her long-lost father embraced, their hearts and souls mending the fractures of the past.
And so, in that quaint town, a new chapter began. The people marveled at the beautiful melodies that wafted through the streets, harmonies punctuated by the occasional, unexpected notes of joy. Together, they celebrated the profound connection between a father and daughter, their shared history merging with newfound love and understanding.
The story of Joe and his daughter became the talk of the town, inspiring others to reflect on their own relationships, and the threads that bind families together. In their song, there was a reminder that love, even in its most peculiar and unconventional forms, has the power to heal wounds, bridge gaps, and rekindle the flame of belonging. And with each melodious note that resonated through their lives, they reaffirmed the enduring power of family and the unique melodies that make them whole.

2023.05.29 01:51 silly_flying_dolphin Stop the War Coalition "It takes a remarkable amount of front to present the G7 summit in Japan as a decisive step towards peace"
It takes a quite remarkable level of front to present what has just taken place at the G7 summit in Japan as a decisive step towards peace. But in the Orwellian world of the western governments, this is what is now being proclaimed. The whole summit centered on building support for more weapons to the Ukraine war and attacking China. All the talk is about China’s ‘economic coercion’ and increasingly aggressive military stance. The cheek of this is almost breathtaking.
The richest and most powerful countries in the world, plus several carefully invited strategic allies, gathered in the Pacific to discuss that region’s most powerful state and accuse it of aggression, at a time when those exact same countries are developing new bases, creating new treaties and alliances, making huge increases in arms spending, and supplying non-nuclear power Australia with nuclear powered submarines.
Perhaps most sickeningly, the Japanese city of Hiroshima was chosen for the summit to, as we were repeatedly told by fawning journalists, highlight the dangers and consequences of war. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were all but destroyed by the first atom bombs, dropped by the US in August 1945, right at the end of the Second World War. Many died instantly, many more suffered radiation sickness which killed them. The justification was that these bombs would save lives because they would force Japan to surrender, when the US knew that such a surrender was already being prepared. The bombings were about demonstrating that the US had such a weapon and asserting its strength as a major superpower.
Not a mention of any of this as Rishi Sunak gave a press conference from a peace centre in the city. Of course not, because that might highlight the central role that this country and its allies, especially the United States, have played in wars over the past century.
It is absolutely clear from the summit that these powers have no interest in peace in Ukraine. Indeed, Volodymyr Zelensky continued his world tour by attending both the Arab League meeting in Saudi Arabia and then the G7 itself. The aim was to berate those countries who do not fall in behind the western analysis of the Ukraine war and put pressure on them to do so. According to a Financial Times article this was the main reason for his attendance at the summit. Sunak’s final press conference rejected calls for a ceasefire, saying it is not a ‘just and durable’ peace. This is also a rejection of the recent Chinese peace proposal.
Instead Sunak and the UK government have been at the forefront of pushing for the war to continue and for increasing the levels of arms sent to Ukraine. Despite US hesitation about supplying F16 fighter jets for fear of escalating the war further, Joe Biden gave into pressure on Friday and has agreed now from US to train pilots and support the planes going to Ukraine. While all the major powers were hesitant about sending offensive weapons at the beginning of the conflict that has now changed with supposed red lines crossed month after month, leading to the provision of German Leopard tanks, long range missiles including now British cruise missiles and the once vetoed F16s.
Despite the overwhelming pressure to send more weapons, the reality is that they will not be operational for months in many cases, so these decisions are as much political as military, but they are part of a very dangerous game. The war in Ukraine itself is at a stalemate. Whatever the truth about who now controls Bakhmut, fighting there has gone on for months with little movement, and the town itself has been destroyed. The long talked of a Ukrainian spring counter offensive has been deferred, and still there is talk of delay. The people suffering are the Ukrainians themselves, who are experiencing high casualties on the battlefield, and bombardment in the towns and cities.
The constant calls for more arms come from the US and European powers, but are not echoed by many other governments, especially in the global south. Zelensky’s calls to the Indian and Brazilian governments for more support will not alter that fundamental fact. Opposition to weapons supplies and sanctions will be for a number of reasons, some no doubt self-interest alone, but there is also a recognition of the aggressive role of NATO, of the failed previous interventions, and of the need to avoid what could rapidly become a global conflict. Nor is continued war the view of the retired diplomats and military figures who signed an ad in the New York Times last week, stressing the need for a diplomatic solution and saying that the war could not be won.
It is against this background that we have to see this Pacific summit and the tensions that will arise from it. The confrontational language has already been attacked by the Chinese government. Sunak went further than the official communique from the G7, saying that China is the biggest challenge to global security and prosperity, possessing ‘the means and intent to reshape the world order’. This is simply not true but it reflects China’s growing economic and military strength in relation to the US, which is in decline. What the G7 said this week is that it is prepared to confront anyone who challenges US and European hegemony and power. 22 May 2023 • by Lindsey German

2023.05.29 01:50 GOODWHOLESOMEFUN Looking for fun places to boat near southern nj, Philly, and shore points.

My wife and I just got a new to us 17’ bowrider and I’m looking for some new fun places to explore. Maybe sandbar islands or something fun to pull up on or fun waterways and places to tube and wakeboard. We’ve been out a little around philly which is close to us, and we’ve been out around Chesapeake Delaware canal, and her family has a boat in wildwood so we’re familiar with those areas, but looking for more adventures.
Also anyone have experience with the free docks At Wilmington Delaware on that main strip of shops where the blue rocks play?

2023.05.29 01:49 salvypena My girlfriend (22F) didn’t cheat on me (23M) but I can’t get over it.

My girl and I were just casual, fwb for about 8-9 months before we committed to each other.
We have now been in this new dynamic for another 8-9.
During the previous stage she slept with another guy twice which didn’t matter to me at the time because I told her I didn’t really care if she got with other people.
But now that we are together and getting serious I can’t stop fantasizing (in a bad way) about this dude railing my girl and it’s so frustrating.
Before saying what she tells me about the situation it is important to say that my relationship with her is very healthy. Honest, open communication and the bunch and I trust her with my life. She never gives off signals that she is a cheater and proves through actions and words constantly how much she loves me. I have never had to doubt her in that regard.
So I have had plenty of talks with her about my feelings on the situation because it is irrationally bothering me to the point I keep imagining a made up scene of them having great sex whenever I stop to think.
She makes it a point to try and help me understand how little it mattered and how much more she enjoys me in bed and how much the dude was a dirtbag one night stand but I just can’t seem to get it through my head. They are not even connected on any social media platform. She regrets it heavily.
The main thing that bothers me about it is that this dude slept with her first night, and for me there was a courting process so it is a big jab to my ego and makes me think that this guy was more of a man than me in some way.
Any advice or similar stories to help me process this bs and get these images out of my head?
I truly love her and don’t want the relationship to suffer because of this

2023.05.29 01:45 Sure_Record6573 rash

just for educational purposes
so sad i developed the rash and i was loving this medication. i’m just writing this because i was really freaked out about SJS and couldn’t find any information about the rash and i had it so i’m here in hopes some people will see this and have some peace of mind.
i went to the urgent care and had to stop my medication, and they prescribed me steroids and hydroxide for the itching and discomfort.
it started on my chest and quickly went to my abdomen and back, but everything is fine! just because you get the rash it does not mean it’s SJS!! my rash has since been going away and i’m feeling a lot better!
i would say watch out for fever and blistering of the mouth, talked to a doctor and those are the more common signs of sjs but regardless the rash isn’t always the worst case scenario.
this happened to me about 7 weeks into my treatment and a week after we titrated my dose.
good luck everyone be safe

2023.05.29 01:45 yungcoco777 I’m trying to love some one with 0 emotions

Most people would feel like a million bucks if they where dating their crush. she genuinely so beautiful and I love her and care about her dearly. But she just isn’t all there sometimes. When we first met she said she was shy and didn’t talk to no one and barely spoke in general. Which wasn’t a problem for me. I’m ok with some one being a little less verbal. But where already 3 months into the relationship and she tells me she’s happy and she’s in love with me but its like, I can’t tell. She the perfect girl Yk. No red flags, doesn’t talk to anyone, stays home all day. But she seems to lack so many emotions that it’s hard to understand how she’s feeling. I’ve figured out some things that will let me know how she feels but if she was pissed off or sad or even happy and you didn’t know her already, you wouldn’t even be able to tell. I love her very much and I don’t ever wanna give up on her ever, but I just feel like I’m in love with the air some times. I know some things take longer for other people but I know there’s gotta be something so beautiful behind that quiet little wall she puts up naturally

2023.05.29 01:44 archaeob Infection/ingrown toenail causing a localized flare?

As background, I have UCTD that leans more towards RA and have been on plaquenil for a few years that leaves me basically pain free most of the time.
I've had an infected ingrown toenail for almost two weeks now that was set of by my work shoes. I've been on antibiotics since Monday and the infection symptoms are gone except for a bit of redness and I'm just dealing with the pain from the ingrown toenail. However, the joints around my big toe have been painful. There is no redness, swelling, hotness, or fever related to this so I don't think it's that the infection has spread into the bone or anything horrible like that (although my anxious mind does go there). I also never really swelled or got redness before being medicated, pain was always my main symptom. So, it feels somewhat similar to a flair of the UCTD, but its just super localized to the area around the infected toe.
I just moved so I don't have a PCP and my rheum is now 5.5 hours away until I can get a new one. So I will obviously go to urgent care and email my rheum if things get worse and am not asking for medical advice but I was just curious if anyone has had a small infection like this that set off a localized flare? All of my searching on infection and RA/UCTD comes up with info on reactive arthritis only.

2023.05.29 01:40 Ok-Reward-6390 21 [M4F] Brazil/anywhere - poet looks for a half to write about

Hello there! I haven’t flirted with anyone for such a long time that I thought this could be fun. I never quite know how to introduce myself but I am a 21 yo male from Brazil, a country in South America. I am going to university for a social sciences degree, and while this is not an application, it feels like one so yes my GPA is pretty high. Besides that, I write poetry on the side, and I work for a small online newspaper.
I am fascinated fairly often by many things so you won’t be bored. These days I was reading about Liberian history before the 1980 coup d’etat and last month I became fascinated by modern Spanish history after reading Preston’s biography of Francisco Franco. In general, I really enjoy all the humanities. I follow politics keenly, and I’d say I am on the centre-left – pro-abortion, in favour of a robust welfare state, LGBTQ+ rights, affirmative action. If you know about Brazilian politics, I voted for Marina and Haddad in 2018 (the voting age here is 16), and Lula last year.
As you can imagine, I also really enjoy reading and writing. Besides poetry, I often write little chronicles, and I have dreamt about writing a novel, but that definitely sounds like too much work right now. As for my favourite novels, they definitely would be Auto-da-Fé by Elias Canetti and War and Peace by Tolstoy. I also really enjoy TV shows and cinema, in general, and I am easily brought to tears in the movies. Yes, I cried during the last Minions movie – and I didn’t even go there willingly. And I really love music. My taste in music has been described as “fairly gay” by a few friends. Since last year, I have been especially fascinated by Rosalía, but I love tango, classical music, hip hop, pop, and indie. I'd have loved to be a musician, but ah, social scientist and amateur poet is good enough.
I'd say I am pretty introverted, polite, and timid. I am affectionate and I can be very passionate as well. I’m fairly funny – or at least, a few people laugh, that is. As for what I want to do with my life, I am unsure though I am inclined to go into academia. I have been considering applying to a PhD program in the U.S. after finishing my undergrad here in Brazil. My family does want me to go into their business, which is related to politics.
What am I looking for? I’d like someone curious about the world around her. And I’d like someone who would be willing to watch Seinfeld with me at times. Someone to love, someone to care, and someone to write about.

2023.05.29 01:40 hey___there__cupcake Struggling with how to help my anxiety/fear...

I'm a 36F that has never had an issue with anxiety until about 9 years ago. I have 2 kids, 16 & 12. My 12 year old is the trigger of my anxiety. He was diagnosed at 3 years old with Autism and was pretty much non-verbal until 4. He still struggles with expressing himself and language comprehension. Anyway, when he was 3 he had a cold. Typical runny nose, mild fever, and slight cough. He was acting normal for the most part minus the sniffles. One night, his ear started randomly bleeding. My husband and I didn't know what was going on and rushed him to urgent care & they referred us to the ER. Come to find out he had a pretty bad ear infection and it ruptured his ear drum. I felt terrible that I didn't notice anything and he had that happen to him. Ever since, even with his speech improving, I'm hyper-vigilent on observing his behavior. Any change and I'm asking him 50 questions. About 4 years ago we went out to eat and he was acting strange. I asked him if he was okay and he said he felt sick. Husband took him to the bathroom and he vomited in there. We immediately paid and left the restaurant. This happened again about 2 weeks later and we figured it was a certain drink he had upsetting his stomach (even though he couldn't tell us) and he hasn't had it since. He also hasn't had an issue since but that's because A.) The pandemic happened and restaurants were closed and B.) I avoid restaurants with him now if I can. I hate it. If he acts slightly different in stores, my stomach drops and I start to panic. I then have to leave wherever we are. My husband attempts to help. He tells me that he's just a teen now or something else. With his Autism he tends to get overwhelmed with certain things but to me overwhelmed = he's sick. I know I'm overreacting. I know it's ridiculous. I tell myself that. I've tried talking to a therapist even though it was embarrassing to admit why I get anxious. I've tried 2 medications but my anxiety is just around him in public so a daily medication doesn't really help. I'm frustrated and I wish I could turn it off. I know he gets frustrated with me and even though my husband is super supportive, he has to do a lot alone because I have to leave. The thing is, I'm fine at home. If he were to get sick here, I'm good. It's the public factor and I think the judgement. I don't want to avoid doing things with him but I'm not sure how to get over this...

2023.05.29 01:39 RoguePlanet1 Random encounter with a Christian today

Lazy Sunday afternoon with the husband, figured why not take a small dose of 'shrooms and wander around the neighborhood, having plenty of better things to do, but not wanting to do them.....
Came across a couple of vintage motorcycle guys outside in their yard, which meant that my husband had to chat them up. They were friendly and we all had a few things in common.
Husband was talking tech stuff with one guy, and I kept chatting with the other, an older guy who shared my cynicism. Of course my gut was telling me that while we shared a distrust of the way the world is going, that he likely had a right-wing version of why things are so off the rails.
Sure enough, he said "I know you'll think I'm crazy, and I know other people think I'm crazy" as he started an anti-vax rant. 🤨 UGH great, I thought, but figured it was a slow afternoon, so I might as well roll with it.
So I patiently listened to his (idea of) logic, how he's convinced that the polio vaccine was a scam because "polio was just starting to go away on its own, and that's when they claimed it was due to the vaccine" yaddayadda. I gently countered some of this but knew there wouldn't be any convincing done on that belief.
Conversation meandered along to some other predictable topics from there, and I'll give him some credit for listening to my side for a bit (often, these right wingnuts will just keep going without taking a breath at all.) He believes that the gov't wants us all dead, for some nebulous reasons which he couldn't explain when I asked for details.
At one point, he said something about "well there are some people I wouldn't mind killing" and I said "OKAY, let me stop you right there, take a step back and ask yourself WHY you feel that way about whatever people you're thinking about." He did seem to be a little embarrassed for a second, and I reminded him, "If you feel that strongly about something, ALWAYS ask yourself where you're getting that information, because it could very well be propaganda." I explained how the billionaires have been getting us to fight cultural wars against our fellow citizens in order to distract us from how we're being robbed blind by corporations. He did agree with that part and seemed to be well aware of the wealth imbalance.
He then said "Let me ask you, do you believe in God?" and I said "not anymore." He then asked "why did you stop believing?" I replied, "well, I took a look at the world around me, and I realized, nobody is driving this bus!"
He then talked a little about how he felt that Jesus was the word in flesh form, because the bible said as much, and cited a quote. I said "well the bible was written over the span of a thousand years, and was heavily edited. They even took out entire parts, like the Gnostic texts- why is that?" He didn't know how to respond, except to elaborate on how "they're trying to get rid of christianity. Why doesn't anybody complain about the muslims or the buddhists or any other religion?"
I said "well the christians are the only ones out there telling me how to live my life. I've never had a muslim tell me I should be wearing a burkah just because THEY believe that, or a buddhist tell me how to live MY life. But I've had christians making harsh judgments about me" and gave him a couple of examples. "Christians are around every step of the way when I'm trying to mind my own business, handing out pamphlets and knocking on doors and telling me I'm an awful person without even knowing me. THAT is what people have a problem with, not what christians believe, I don't care who you pray to as long as it's kept to yourself." I wanted to talk about Florida and the laws being passed down there, but I had a feeling he's either not hearing about that on Fox, or thinks it's exaggerated.
He said "well judgment is never a good thing......" at which point I should've reminded him "you just said two minutes ago that you wouldn't mind killing certain people!!" 😡 Which is in violation of the very first commandment, which is as un-christian as it gets, at least in theory! 🙄
From there, he said that "I really hope you don't turn away from God," yaddayadda, and by then my husband was finally done talking shop with the other guy. We parted on good terms, neither of our minds changed, but I hope I gave him a few points to consider. If nothing else, I'd be happy if he went back to his Jesus-y friends and asked them to tone down the judgment a couple of notches, and to maybe STFU once in a while. I should've trotted out some good quotes about preaching in public, but of course those quotes never come up on the spot when you really need them.....!

2023.05.29 01:38 Sea-Geologist-8727 Scary Experience & Lesson Learned

So today I (27f) was at the farm park with my partner (29m) & 15mo toddler. We were playing in the small splash location with some other kids & one family had a neurotypical son (8ish) & severely autistic daughter (+8 I think) in a wheelchair. My toddler went by her chair, she grabbed him & almost threw him face first into the large rocks about a yard away.
It all happened so fast, the father was apologizing profusely & we were all thankful that my toddler stopped a meer INCH from hitting the rock. I reassured the dad, it's not his fault, it's not his kid's fault. If it's anyone's fault, it's mine. I should have had a better eye on my toddler, but I just didn't think that that was a possibility.
I feel so bad for the heart attack I caused this family. She didn't know, I assume she just wanted to play with him, but she got yelled at a little out of fear by her dad. We ended up talking & he expressed that he & his wife try very hard to make sure things like this don't happen, but sometimes... "This is why [they] don't take her to places when it's crowded."
I wish I could take the experience back. I wish I had paid better attention. We were all having such a great time... I feel bad for the family, because I caused what was supposed to be a fun day at the farm park, their FIRST TIME there, to be filled with massive anxiety & worry.
I don't want to be a helicopter parent, I keep him close in places with lots of people. This was a small area & we were right there, but how was I supposed to know that this would happen?
Lesson learned. Keep a better eye on my child & stay closer to his side.

2023.05.29 01:35 Billyrazer88 (WTS) Sebenzas Spydercos and a Cold Steel
I am the second owner. This was originally a large insingo but it was sent in and rebladed by the previous owner through CRK to a drop point double lugs blade. It's in great condition, I've only carried it two or three times. It is slightly off center towards the show side.
This was a slight user. Wear is mainly on the scales and clip. This one was also rebladed by the previous owner and they kept the original insingo blade that is stated on the birth card. On the bright side the blade is in great condition compared to the scales. Also comes with an MXG black clip, box, paperwork, and sticker.
Has been used a little bit but is in all around good condition and still sharp. I believe I have the correct box but I will have to check.
I am the second owner and I carried it two times when I received it a few years ago and it's been sitting at home since. Still very sharp and great condition. Comes with box. I'll throw this in for $80 with any other knife if anyone would care for a bundle.
I just received this as a back up to my other Chef that is one of my all time favorites but I need the cash now instead. Overall good condition and comes with an extra aftermarket Lynch clip.
Please feel free to ask any questions. I'm not really looking for trades except possibly for the right SnG.

2023.05.29 01:34 dark_signals What's with the money stuff?

Still coming off the end of a roommate who I felt very deeply for. One of the things that hurt most for me and one of my other roommates caring for this person was the money stuff, because we both were working hard to earn what we had and our pwBPD would just take and take. They couldn't keep a job and put minimal effort into looking, citing how tired or disabled or sick or depressed they were, but they refused to go on disability and gave up trying for unemployment after a month or so (this was one of the things that made me decide to stop talking to them).
Meanwhile, their needs were constant. They needed cigarettes, alcohol, takeout and delivery every day, and then would insist on giant grocery sprees where we would go to multiple stores and spend hundreds of dollars for a couple meals. This was in addition to us splitting their rent because they could never pay, covering their utilities which they never paid either, insurance for their car they couldn't pay, and, at one point, $300 each to keep the bank from taking their car due to lack of payment.
Once, my roommate mentioned to me that they didn't think our pwBPD could see money as real, despite claiming over and over that they grew up poor and were very aware of money and what it meant; this was absolutely something you could never ever say to them or indicate in any way. I've never met anyone else who tried so little to get a job while being paid for by other people-- or even like, tried so little to get financial help at all? After one of their car crashes my roommate offered to help them knock down their fees significantly and they declined. Found an excuse to give up on unemployment. Wouldn't take disability. Called me bitchy for asking them to find a replacement to sublet their room when they said they were moving out, then found an excuse for why they couldn't and I had to do it instead, so we still are paying for the room to this day. And for what? Why?
Sometimes they acted like they felt actually bad about people buying stuff for them, but it didn't stop them from taking, and I just can't understand why you wouldn't want to put in the effort? I did all the cleaning in our house too, including cleaning up after their constant messes, and after a while it was almost like they avoided putting any effort in out of spite. And also, after all these things they just... still made up conspiracies about why I hated them. In reality, my whole life revolved around taking care of them.
When they got fired from their last job after talking back to the boss, I sent them jobs that were perfect for them, fitting their very specific needs for a job. They said they understood where I was coming from but they 'just needed some time to be sad' before looking for something new. They didn't get a job for the rest of the time they lived with us. We paid for everything.
One weekend they pressured another one of our friends into coming with them back to their home city for the week. She didn't want to do it at all and not for that long and actively refused but they can't take no for an answer and kept pushing until she broke. Once they got there, our pwBPD made her pay for a bar crawl, several hundred dollars. She could only leave when she stressed to them that she didn't have any money left to give them, because she was unemployed and was very stressed looking for a job and wanted to save. This was another incident that made me go NC with our pwBPD; it made me lose even more respect for them, even though they had been disappointing me every day for months, to be honest.
Just like... why? It still haunts me. Like what thought process leads them to think this is okay? Personally I think thinking about how much we were spending on them made them feel guilty or ashamed, and instead of doing something about it they just decided not to think about it anymore. They once told my roommate to never mention how much they'd spent on them over the years (which totaled to far more than what I spent on them when they lived here) because it made them feel bad. It's just so strange, this juxtaposition of like, constant victimhood and weird entitlement and refusal to help themselves.

2023.05.29 01:34 gkstaysolid 30 Day Water Fast Complete ✅🎉

30 Day Water Fast Complete ✅🎉
What a journey it has been. Not sure where to even start, but I want to first thank God for being with me through out this journey. 30 days water fast & I’ve lost 18kg which is 40lbs! The mental battle you go through during the fast is by far one of the most challenging things you can ever go through. Hunger subsided after day 5-7. Anything after that isn’t physical hunger just psychological hunger. I want to mention to anyone who is planning to do a long fast in the future to not be STUBBORN like myself and think you are superior and actually take ELECTROLYTES & SALT through out the fast. I survived 26 days on only tap water, no electrolytes, no salt, no vitamins & on day 27 (a few days ago) I passed out and blacked out 3 times within 10 minutes, I severely cut the corner of my eye in the midst of all this and went to the hospital to get stitches. My blood sugar was so low. I’d like to mention that I’ve been working 5 days a week 12 hour shifts during my whole fast. At the hospital, they tried to feed me however I declined as I was so close to finishing, they gave me potassium tablets as I had little to no potassium/sodium in my blood. Now it’s been 30 days and I can happily say, what a beautiful challenging journey. I feel better, lighter, still got a lot of weight to lose but it’s about maintaining the deficit from now on. I didn’t do this purely for the weight loss, I wanted to detox my digestive system & eliminate my bad eating habits. Biggest binge eater here so to not go without food for 30 days shows me a lot. I can definitely say that the biggest negative about this fast is the strong metallic taste in your mouth which never goes away which you have to get used to. If you have any questions, feel free to leave one. Take care & stay strong. ❤️🤝🏼

2023.05.29 01:33 FinalFantasy_Nerd Battling depression because of my toxic mother

Not seeking advice here. Just need to get it off my chest. Also, English is not my first language and I don't live in the US.
My mother is a toxic person and might even be an entitled Karen. I don't know. What I do know is that my mother has some serious psychological issues. Especially with infants and small baby's. She calls herself "crazy for babys" and proved time and time again, that she only cares for a human as long as it's tiny and cuddly. She has a massive reborn collection, which are baby dolls that look like newborns. They are very expensive but she has to have them around. I am pregnant right now (37 weeks) and constantly on edge, terrified because she will take my baby away. I can't sleep and can't concentrate on anything. It causes me stress to know they will do anything in their power to come visit. The story is long and difficult to explain. In order to make this logical, I need to go back in time.
The past: I am one of 6 children and a twin. I have two older brothers, my twin sister and two (much) younger sisters. My parents were never the emotional type of people. We never heard any words of endearment, a simple "I am proud of you" or even an "I love you". Physically we were not abused but I'd say we were starved of any emotional connection we needed. We never heard a bed time story, never talked about our day at dinner table and even had to be quiet at dinner because my parents wanted to watch TV. To this day, the TV runs all day long. Both of them stopped working in the mid 90s and are living off of benefits from the government. So there wasn't a lot of money growing up. We didn't have fun outings or something like that. Little to no attention was paid to us and if we were annoying while spending time in the living room, they would send us to our rooms. My younger sisters were born when I was 13 and 14 and I remember that as they were babies, they would get all the cuddles, hugs and words of love especially from my mother. I love my little sister's to death but I can't deny that I was a little jealous. I never acted on it tho. In one particular incident I was cleaning the living room since my sister spread her baby toys around the whole area (we did a lot of chores back then). Meanwhile, my mother was cuddling my sister on the couch, telling her how much she loves her. I went to my room crying because I never heard her saying it to me. This stopped after a few years tho, as it is always the case with my parents. Once children reach a certain age, they will receive little to no attention, no love, no hugs etc. She admitted to me today that she is the most interested in babys - as they are her favorite stage of kids - while others may prefer school kids, teens or even adults. I'd like to imagine parents always having the same amount of interest in their children no matter the age. But let's move on... Other examples that started to spark my anxiety were when she told my twin sister and me point black, that if we end up pregnant in university, they will gladly take in our babys so we could continue studying and we could "visit" our babys on the weekends. Mind you, we attended university in a different state, a few hours by public transport. She added that we could have them back once they would need to go to school. Also, since our major contained a year abroad as an exchange student, she told us she would be so sad if we end up falling in love with someone over there, at the end of the world and end up having their grandchildren on the other side of the globe. Because they would never be able to meet them (reminder: to this day they have no job). And even tho my brothers could provide them with grandchildren, my mother was not satisfied as it was not the same with daughters. In her explanation, her own daughters would keep the baby's in case the parents would split up so she could still see her grandkids. Whereas if my brothers would split up with their partners, the daughter in law keeps the grand babies. A rather selfish thought if you ask me. All these instances made me wary of having children of my own.
Present: I moved to a different country 3 years ago since my husband lives here. We are married for one year, together for 5. My parents only attended the wedding because we paid for all of it: travel costed accommodation etc. They never shown any interest in my husband tho and I apologized for their cold behavior toward him multiple times. When we visit them, not a single soul asks how we are or what's new in our lives. They don't even congratulate my husband on his birthday, not even sending a simple text. No interest at all. Her reasons behind that is that they "are not social people and just can't come and ask Somebody how he's doing in life". My own husband. Their son in law. After 5 while years.
I am 37 weeks pregnant with my husband's and my first child. A baby girl. It is not the first grandkid as I have a nephew (5) and a niece (4) already. Children by my oldest brother. I told my parents that we were pregnant on a messager app but the conversation went cold soon. During the whole pregnancy, there were only one sided conversations with me sending ultrasound pictures or news about the baby and only an emoji as a response. As time went on, I send less and less info's as it is really exhausting begging for attention. Today she told me that she is often too busy to answer straight away. And apparently also too busy to write to me - anytime, anything. As mentioned above, they never asked us children how we were and so I never even got a "How are you" during my pregnancy. Never. I admit that I was hoping for a bit of attention in the beginning of pregnancy but as I am used to the coldness, it didn't bother me really. I had some really relaxing first few months of pregnancy. It did however bother me that from the beginning she had demands - not questions! - but demands regarding my baby. Some of them were: - since they cannot afford coming over anytime, they want to schedule a visit at our city on their terms: their time schedule (we are expecting end of June, they want to visit mid July), they want to come over during the week, not on weekends as it is more expensive, so they say (it's holidays anyway in July/August so it's expensive whenever they come). Both my parents said they don't wanna come later than a few weeks after birth, like August or October because then the baby would already be "too old". She said today that "babys grow up so fast and if we don't come right away we will never be able to see her that small again" - my mother wants to put lipstick on her lips, kiss my baby all over her face and make cute pictures. She never wears make up, ever. She would buy any cheap lipstick as she has no money or knowledge of makeup. - she is all into photography which is not bad per se but she already bought special photo books for all her grandkids, that she wants to fill. Last time we talked (my dad's birthday so I called) she demanded "And I want lots of pictures" when the baby is here. As if she is entitled to them. She bought six books in total, one for each grandkid (she already has two and mine coming soon) and proudly told me I could make three more kids as she is already set and prepared book wise. This was the first direct message at me after months of not asking how my pregnancy is doing. The first information she seemed to find necessary enough to share was that I could give her three more baby's. - my mother also asked me if I wanted some foot-and handprints of my baby since she is doing some when she comes over (as if I couldn't make them myself). You know, she still got some colour's left from my niece and nephew and would bring them with her. "nice as she is" I could then also have some prints. Of my own babys hands and feet! Again, not asking but rather demanding as if she is entitled to just do it. And again explaining that the hands and feet only stay tiny for a bit since babys grow so fast. - she told me time and time again that she only wants to visit for 2-3 days if she can come and hold/cuddle my baby. Since that is what she comes for in the first place. If she can't hold the baby, she won't come. She will not spend the time and money just to watch the baby sleeping in her crib. She told me today that she is baby crazy but of course she also comes to see my husband and me but said "I already know you two. Now I want to get to know the baby".
There are other examples but that sums it up quite nicely. All of my siblings know that the attention they now put on my baby will soon fade away. They might send a birthday card till she goes to school but then it will slowly fade away.
So why don't I just forbid her from coming you might ask? Well, she is a master manipulator and really toxic. My dad stands behind her every word. Whenever she won't get it her way, she starts crying and we are to blame. It was always that way and we were always forced to apologize even if it wasn't our fault. I feel guilty. Constantly. She says that if they can't come visit, I will always hold it against them that they didn't pay attention to my baby. When I reality I would gladly just love my life without them but I can't tell her that since it makes me the AH. It breaks me and I know I have to work on myself. My husband and twin sister are my biggest supporter. It all escalated today when I told her exactly what my problems are and she send a 50mins (!) voice recording via messenger arguing with me. It was full of excuses, denial, lies and most of all accusations. She constantly puts the blame on us, saying things like "Well, if you don't want us there" making me the villain. I talked to my in laws about this (who are amazing people Btw) and they suggested we talk it out. But one cannot talk it out with her. Once she feels like she is in the wrong, she will cry, shut down and run away - literally. She is constantly in denial about the emotion abuse she put us through while we were children. And as adults. She is in denial about the lack of interest she puts in contacting me and asking her own children how they are. She constantly puts herself in the role of the victim, crying how many issues she has - issues like my younger sister (18) now moving out and the extreme burden they have helping her finding an apartment and stuff. As if she is not their child and as if it's not their responsibility to help their children!
The last message I send her today was a confirmation that she can come visit but only under following rules (condensed): Rule #1: no holding the baby unless you ask us or we give her to you. Rule #2: no pictures taken or distributed unless you ask us. Rule #3: no hand- or footprints, no lipstick kisses on babys skin. Rule #4: if you want information about the baby you have to come to us, not the other way around (I was sick of always hearing that I am the one who has to inform her of every step since that's "how it was in my youth when I was pregnant with y'all").
So far she hasn't answered but I expect one of the two outcomes: either she agrees to the terms and I feel a bit lighter or she says she can't agree to the terms and thus, can not come, which also takes the pressure off of me. I won't beg for them to come. If they can't follow our rules and rather stay home, so be it. I try hard to focus on my baby right now and I don't want the stress they are causing me.
It is really hard to sever the bond that ties children to their parents and as hard as I try, I am still not able to cut them off completely. Not untill my little sisters moved out. I don't want to let them down and first want to help them escape the toxic hell. But I want to put my foot down and will not let her have it her way. It's time someone shows my mother she can't demand anything she wants.

2023.05.29 01:32 Impressive-Potato-89 8 week update (41,m)

8 weeks ago i had labral repair with a little bone shaving, and i always said i would post here if i had a somewhat positive recovery to balance out a lot of the horror stories you find on the internet.
2 years ago i had a mtn bike accident that meant i have to have shoulder reconstruction, hand reconstruction and rehab of left knee for a torl MCL.
my hip hurt after the accident but it was the least of my concerns so i focused on other injuries.
in the past year however as i returned to sport my hip never felt right, so after 8 months of trying conservative options i elected for labral repair.
unfortunately when the doc scoped me he found i was missing a decent chunk of my femur, so i may be due for a hip replacement at some point.
Recovery was shockingly not very painful, compared at least to my shoulder. Crutches for two weeks and probably 5 or 6 weeks until i could walk with out a limp,
8 weeks in and i can walk 10,000 steps a day and sit on a bike putting out around 160 watts.
looking to get back into racing in 3 months or so.
Am back to upper body workouts while still being careful, and am goblet squatting with 60lbs to almost paralell. (video attached
any questions ask!
All the best in all your recoveries

2023.05.29 01:32 SteinerScoutLance 30 [M4F] Ontario/Anywhere - Gentle Giant & Nerd Seeks Cat Ladies, Gamers & Geeks

Hello ladies! I hope you are having a nice day, and if not, that you find someone who can bring a smile to your face! I come to you looking for a consistent chat partner with whom I can hopefully develop an emotionally intimate relationship with. I’m open to anything that happens, but not looking to rush into anything. Let’s just chat, spend time together and see where it goes?
I’m very left leaning, child-free and emotionally available. I’m a tall, hairy and chunky boy, happy to provide pictures of myself and my cats on request! I love board games, television and film, history, animal care and food of all kinds. I am a big proponent for being active in local community support organizations and do my best to be a faithful friend. I’m far from perfect, but making other people laugh or smile is what makes my day!
I currently have three foster cats who take up a lot of my time, as I am working on socializing two of them who were born outside. We are making great progress! I’d love to meet another animal lover, as my eventual dream would be to open up an animal sanctuary that doubles as a therapy center for humans. I have an unbreakable love for animals, and faith in their ability to help us heal. I think seeing a battered, scarred or withdrawn animal come out of their shell, seeking love, attention and comfort is one of the most rewarding things on the planet.
I’m a sucker for a cute giggle or laugh, freckles, curly hair and genuine passion about what interests you. Intelligence and emotional maturity are big things for me, but I’d also love someone to watch trashy reality TV with! Tell me about your pets, your D&D campaign, your favorite movie, or your dirty little secret! Let’s get to know each other. Please give me more than ‘hey’ or ‘how are you’ to work with!

2023.05.29 01:32 exodia04 Life is becoming a little too difficult

I’m working two jobs (cannot escape the first job before July due to contract and commuting for the second job twice a week) and taking care of my mother since she broke her leg. I also have multiple sclerosis so I have to force time for the gym and cook healthy balanced meal for both me and my mother. I try to escape my responsibilities a little by playing games and occasionally going out during weekends but it’s becoming unbearable. Knowing that I cannot discard any of the mentioned responsibilities for now what can I do to just relax a little more?
