  3. By some of you no less!! But I believe that I've definitely decided to go back to school...again. I was doing rather well before Luke was born, but then I decided to take a break because newborn, but I never went back. That kid just turned 4. So I looked into it. I'm actually only 6 classes away from wrapping up an Associate of Arts. I need: a 1 hour phys ed class Texas Government a speech/communication class a creative arts class (art history, art/music/dance/theater appreciation) a language/philosophy/culture class (mostly lit, philosophy, and humanities classes) and another science

  6. I’ll third what they’ve said. Don’t be ashamed for asking for advice before doing the right thing, be glad that you did the right thing. Family entanglements are tough and even more when dealing with a parent. You’ve done nothing wrong. RV did something wrong, and it absolutely false that he didn’t know what he was doing, because he knows enough to hide it. If he was groping your wife openly in front of everyone, or tried to touch your son in a crowded place, you could argue he doesn’t know better. He does, but like any predator he knows how to hide it. I want to applaud you for not

  8. I went to the ER, on doctor recommendation, about three weeks or so into shut down because there was a lump in my sack. It had been a little uncomfortable for a day or two before then, but soon as I felt basically a third ball, I called and they said to go on. Went through basically the same as you: a lot of ball touching and an ultrasound. It turned out to be just a cyst that went away on its own, but I did get this incredible statement on my discharge papers. All time great.

  9. Now that I am working maybe I will come back to this thread to keep myself accountable... or at the very least prove to myself I am not wasting away. I am currently on TWO paying jobs. I mentioned in my last update that I had landed a pitch-- that is job one. If anyone is familiar with the website CryptTV, they are a repository of horror short films. They got a big influx of money from an investor and are taking some of their short form IP and giving them a glow up to become full on TV shows. I can't say which of their things I am working on, but they hired me to write a pilot episode and

  11. It's ridiculous how stigmatized mental health issues and how demonized therapy is.

  12. 5G makes sense, though. 5G. China has 5 letters, and G stands for Global elite. Its all right there. China and the global elite are conspiring to take down Trump by indiscriminately killing people all over the world, so he cant take down the Clintons and their vast pedophile ring.

  14. Ever since my cat, Stormy, died of cancer in July, I've been wanting to get a kitten. It feels empty here with only one cat, plus I think Elvira needs a companion, especially when I go away for a weekend at a friend's house. So, yesterday, I adopted this little girl from the Yavapai Humane Society. She is three months old, feisty, fearless, and opinionated. That was what attracted me to her at the shelter: she was YELLING louder than the other cats! And when I held her, she immediately began purring like a motorboat. I held another kitten, a beautiful calico, but the grey one kept hollering. S

  16. You shouldn't feel ashamed. None of us can know how we're going to react to a situation like this until it happens. And I think instinctively, we try to take the path of least resistance. It doesn't matter that your change of mind occurred after asking for help, it matters that it happened at all. Good for you, man.

  17. So I really, really want to thank everyone for this. This is exactly what I needed and I appreciate EVERYONE. It really helped me self-reflect. Everyday my job is to advocate for those who can't advocate for themselves and yet it was my own son whom I didn't fully advocate for when he needed me to the most. If it wasn't for this thread I wouldn't have realized this and I am ashamed and embarrassed. What I am even more ashamed about, and I didn't realize this until this thread, but knowing that this is unlikely to ever be prosecuted, I was afraid that this would give my mom and a fa

  19. Hey, everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you. Not only have you put up with me in being essentially my collective second therapist (or third now, technically), but the advice you've given me has helped me out in my personal life tremendously. I know that sometimes I have a hard time sensing someone's tone, or I think a piece of advice is an insult, and for that I am sorry. Honestly, this is the most civil and mature community I have ever belonged to. I used to hang around only in the Star Wars forum, but I've only recently started poking around e

  21. Well, it took over 6 months, but I finally took the first step! I signed up for 2 classes for the upcoming semester. Turns out my academic probation hold (which is pretty permanent thing on my record thanks to my fun-loving 20s) was lifted automatically by the college for COVID reasons. They granted an automatic lift to everyone on probation with a GPA over 2.0. Mine is apparently a 2.01. So go me! I'm opting to retake 2 classes that I'd signed up for in like 2003 but then stopped going to, earning an F. That way the new grades will replace the old grades bumping my GPA hopefully into non-pr

  23. Yeah, man, let's end the stigma. My daughter is currently seeing a psychologist for anxiety, my son has a psychiatrist appointment next week, and we just started 13 weeks of parent-child interaction therapy because my son's behavior is so out of control that we need a crash course on how to become a behavioral expert because normal parenting rules don't apply and he's too young for individual therapy. I do what I have to do to help them and I give zero shits if anyone has an issue with that. Investing now means not waiting until my daughter has a nervous breakdown or my son ends up in jail. I'

  24. The only thing I'm gonna comment on is the two therapist thing, "twice as many as a normal person." fuck that. See as many as you need. See one, see two, see fourteen thousand. There's no such thing as a normal person or a normal amount of therapy. Get that concept out of your head. Or tell your therapists about it lol. Seriously though therapy is therapy and there is no right or wrong amount.

  25. I am not proud to be an American. Every major civilization has had its atrocities, but the fact that we ignore, downplay, and outright pretend as of they never happened let alone refuse to acknowledge how they impact current society is sickening. I know this isn't exclusive to America, and other countries are far worse, but fuck...do we have to fuck over Native Americans every chance we get.

  28. I lub you guys and gals. I'm weirdly at peace but still super sad. The hardest part is going to be telling my Nan. We haven't told my Mom's Mom. She's 102 as of last month. I think secretly she knows because they had this strange connection. Nan always knows when Mom is in trouble.

  29. I'll add, Zerimar, that being reflective is a great thing- trying to make sense of things in order to better ones self is an admirable thing. So kudos to you. But also don't try over think things, it can lead to dark places if you spend too much time in the internal upstairs. Let shit go and keep moving forward. Just not with 20 year olds, or co workers... But you already came to that conclusion. Also clients aren't a good idea either. In fact personal/professional should be kept well separate. fuck im glad I'm not trying to date people anymore.

  32. I have used Rogaine for the last seven or so years. I put it on every money and night like clockwork. My morning routine (workdays) has stayed the same for like twenty years and my mind is essentially on autopilot. A few years back I had a hemorrhoid. Being on autopilot, I accidentally put the Rogaine up my ass and the Preperation H on my head. It took me a few seconds to figure out what was happening. Anyways, to me that was kinda symmetrical in an existential kind of way. Dude...I don't know....it's been a ****ing week.

  33. I have to agree with some recent posters. You seemingly only look at this from your perspective. I mean the line "they dont know how much love Im capable of" or whatever exactly you said sounds like somethihng a crazy person would say to their captive. You say that girl is giving this other guy the chance she should have given you. Why? She likes the other guy better, plain and simple. No one SHOULD give you a chance. Your attitude seems to be "im awesome and these other idiots need to realize it."

  34. BACK TO ME I got the place. My stress levels are much less now that I know I have a place to live and I could get what I wanted. I'm still paying out the nose for it, but right now I don't care. I want my own place that will make me happy and it is exactly what I want.

  37. If you need to carry a gun when you go outside to feel safe or free, I question the very concept of freedom and safety these people hold dear. I can understand gun ownership for hunting, home defense and these sort of things.. but if you need to be armed to go outside? Says a lot about the correlation between the illusion of safety and freedom.

  38. The strange thing is people use the term "socialist" as if it's an inherently bad thing. That's fucking bizarre to me. Like universal healthcare, education and housing for the entire population is somehow bad? What? Was ist das? I get that Capitalism in its pure definition is human nature. We should all be able to be rewarded for our labour. But capitalism and socialism are not mutually exclusive and socialist policies can really protect the people of a capitalist society from getting utterly trampled by the system, particularly if said person has slipped through the cracks.

  39. I hope it goes well, Ender! I have an interview tomorrow morning for a job maintaining and updating contracts for a property management company. Basically stuff that an attorney would do, but who wants to pay for that? I have an interview on Monday with a dental insurance start-up for positions not yet listed. One is related to a position that is listed, as a Member Success Representative, which sounds a lot like customer service and would be a step down for my career, but if the money is right, I’m willing to consider it. Especially since it’s not an entry level position. The other

  41. Were glad that you want to be more part of the community, Zerimar. I dont think anyone here thinks they understand you completely, we understand that people have depth and cant be pigeonholed easily. Except Krawlie. Hes an ass, and loves to be pigeonholed. Which is like being cornholed only with a bird.

  43. Oxygen is normal-low, steroids seem to be helping. As long as I can stay normal for several hours, including while walking around my room, I'll be out today or tomorrow. That also pends additional tests coming back and showing my various symptoms are still doing okay. They'd rather get me out as long as I'm stable and responding well to treatment, but if something happens again and things go south, they'll readmit me without going through the ER. But if my oxygen drops or if the second round of tests comes back showing that I'm getting worse, I'm in for at least 24 hours, probably until at
