  1. Didn’t really want to make a new topic so I thought I would post this here. After nearly 4 years of hard work, literal blood, sweat and tears, failure and self doubt, finally came the culmination of a black belt for my son a couple weeks ago. I’m soooo fucking proud of him. I can’t even describe how great it felt seeing his Instructor finally tie that black belt around him after years of taking him to karate 4 days a week and endless tournaments and wiping away all of the blood, tears and snot off him from sparring matches, wins, losses and failed tests.

  5. Well, so far, the new dosages and new med is working. I don't have those dark episodes of depression, like I had a couple weeks ago. I am starting to feel back to normal, or what should be normal. I actually feel myself laughing more, too, which has to be a good sign. i also have been giving CBD hard candy a try, too. Just being able to share my experience here makes me feel better too, so thank you guys for bending an ear.

  8. Not only was there a pool, but earlier in the day we took them to one of those family fun centers for a few hours, a geek store which was mainly for me but they still got a few toys themselves, and got to eat junk for the whole day. For them, it was pretty much the best day ever. But the topper, of course, was that the surgery went well. My mom went back home before he ever woke up so no ones talked to him yet, but the doctors said it went as smoothly as it could. I just feel relief that at least this part of it is over. However it went, I just needed it to end, honestly. now I’

  9. Nightly stopped being a popculture discussion board years ago, it's down to just a handful of people who like talking to each other about movies and stuff. Trolls have all outed and flamed themselves out. None of us are interested in being an angst-filled anonymous place to yell at each other. So you come back 15 years later, still acting like a teenage edgelord, and you're mad that we're now just a small group of friends who are are adults talking about adult things, and it's our fault and we suck? Have you really run out of places to troll and you'd hoped we'd take your bait? If y

  11. Things are mostly good for me. I got my first shot two weeks ago so that's nice. We're hoping that by the end of summer Covid will be in control enough that we can put my kid into preschool. My husband has been a stay at home dad for most of the last year now, and that's been a hard transition for him but he's actually really enjoying it now. I did have a total covid anxiety dream the other night where I went over to a friends house and she had like 100 people over with no masks on, so yay anxiety! I'm looking foward to seeing my family without a mask on. I'm hopeful that we'll get

  12. I have an adult / late ASC/D diagnosis. I am 46, but got the diagnosis 11 years ago this spring. Every diagnosis is different in terms of difficulty with various things, so I have bad executive dysfunction (maybe ADD)* and any sensory overload issues are related to touch instead of hearing (Hobbes might have forgotten more about autism than I know), but a kind of immaturity is there and I am very self-conscious about it (other people's maturity often makes me anxious), and I know it is unlikely to change. (edit, point being don't focus on someone's immaturity, but rather their not be

  14. I don’t cuss, so this is really extreme: fuck them. If they think you’re the bad guy, then they either innocently don’t know what’s going on or they’re molester protecting pieces of shit and you’re better off without them. This is black and white, good and evil stuff. And if they want to choose to be evil, that’s not on you.

  15. My new guitar came in. It was 3/4 size (kid size) instead of full size. Drove to the other side of town to return it to a physical store to avoid shipping. Ended up spending $100 more to get a much nicer guitar, and the guy threw in a hard case ($100+) a strap ($20) and some miscellaneous odds and ends.

  16. Tomorrow starts medical leave. I get 3 weeks off. I'm going to get sliced open and have a bunch of bones removed, but unlike when I was in such horrible pain back last December, I can sleep the whole damn day if I need to for three whole weeks. Also, they're going to slice me open and remove a bunch of bones in a week, and I am so glad it's almost here and not seven weeks out like when I scheduled the surgery.

  21. My day at work was really light, so I decided for some reason to hit the high points of my relationship past: I went on my first date as a junior in high school, and it didn't exactly go well. It was my junior prom, and I went with a girl who was a senior, and she spent the entire prom in the bathroom with her friend who was crying over a boy she liked being with another girl. None of my friends went, but I danced with a girl I knew who's date also abandoned her. Didn't date again until my senior year, when I started dating a girl, we went on a few dates, then we went to prom together. I

  25. 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

  27. I think the people like that are the most afraid. They're afraid of anything being slightly outside the norm. Afraid of having to make hard choices and deal with things not being as expected. We're all struggling with life no longer being what we considered normal, but these are people who are SO wrapped up in what they viewed as normal that they can't deal with anything even slightly outside of that, let alone a global pandemic. Life must be ordered the way they want it, or it's wrong and evil. And they have the temerity to call mask wearers cowards.

  28. 1st house from this weekend did not go pending, which was a shock. We're going to go look at it again tomorrow. I'm more willing to consider knocking out walls and doing upgrades if I don't have to engage in a bidding war to win it.

  29. Oh hey guys, for any of you who don't follow me on Facebook or get my annoying texts at 2 AM, I totally finished this. After working on it off and on for 2 decades, I finally finished my associates degree. I'm glad that's over. Now I can devote my time over the next 2 decades to getting a bachelors. Maybe.

  30. Tonight at dinner, Eliza, my five year old, wanted a scary campfire story. Louis, the 8 year old, wanted a Star Wars story. So I ripped off your Star Wars slasher movie idea and told a story of Rebels crash landed on a planet being hunted by Vader. I just got super dad points for having that idea ready to go.

  32. So many things right now actually! It's helping me hold space for all my friends who are dealing with some shit right now. I started my new job last week! This week my boss is at Disney, so I'm on my own to do my training and start organizing this business. It's going well. I love working from home and on my own schedule. I just make myself available during the day for meetings and to answer emails/texts, but nobody is actually staring over my shoulder making sure that I'm always on task or micromanaging me in any way. This is new for me, and I love it. The boys are out of town t

  34. We don’t want, or need, a villain. People who try to fill that role pretty quickly find themselves removed from Nightly. We’d love to have you here, but if you really want to play a villain, there are better places to do it.

  35. Not trying to take over this thread--it's supposed to be about COVID not my parents--but they called to tell us to come out anyway. My mom is only allowed to visit my dad once a week now anyway, so they agreed it was worth it to take a week off so she can see the kids. So I guess the trip is back on. All the kind words are greatly appreciated though. This month has sucked a lot.

  38. I'm not sure if it's fully possible for men to truly and fully understand what it's like for women to be pretty consistently valued mainly for our ability to provide sex. But we are, pretty much from the moment our boobs begin to develop (if not birth). It affects literally every aspect of our lives. The world, and most of the people in it, regard women as little more than sexual objects. The amount of trust and bravery required to give physical intimacy (not sexual intimacy) to a man is enormous. Being able to trust that the man you're touching isn't going to "make a move" is so relievi

  39. Okay! Progress is made! I have a double laminectomy on the calendar for June 18. Turns out that *cough* age related degeneration was actually another severely herniated disc, so both thoracic and lumbar will be operated on at the same time. As for the cyst, I have a referral in to a cranial sacral specialist that I’ll be scheduling in the next few days. So my back should be healed up and I’ll be enjoying summer by late July, if my doctor is correct.

  43. I just registered for my final 4 classes of community college - Intro to Health and Wellness (I have to buy a Fitbit instead of a textbook, should be interesting), Business & Professional Communications, Texas Government, and Film Appreciation (I had my choice of Appreciation classes, I went with Film because I figured I'd have to watch movies or clips and I get to put on headphones and make my family leave me alone). By summer I should have an AA. Yay me. Trevor was accepted to Texas State, so he's starting online classes there in next semester as well. He already has an associates,

  45. 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.

  46. 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
