2023.05.28 15:05 owlyjules I am afraid of loosing her.

My wife (33F) and I (33F) have been together for 6 years but she has been really struggling with physical health (fibro) and depression for the last 2 years.
But recently it really took a turn where she cant even reply to texts from her loved ones and dread going outside or having people visit. For now i am doing my best to keep her in a safe place but her isolating herself even more rreally worry me. Even from me she sometimes feels distant even tought she tries not too for my sake.
She says she cant imagine a future or getting better.
She is thankfully followed by a Therapist (a good one) and a Psychotherapist (not so good since he barely remember what meds he put her on most of the time) and we are waiting on a reply from a mental health programm but its been months now.
Is there any tips or things you guys think i should try? I didnt know where else to turn and I am glad I found this community.

2023.05.28 15:04 kfellows91 Just Starting my Journey

Hi Everyone,
I’m new here and am looking for some advice on potentially starting a nursing career “later in life”. I’m currently 32 years old with a previous Associate’s degree in Human Services and I work full-time in one of the local county government offices. I’m also a single mom to a 2 year old which I know will come with its own set of challenges but I don’t feel like my situation is that much different than anyone else’s/hasn’t been done before. The community college that I graduated from in 2016 has an RN program which I am planning to apply to once I get the pre-reqs done and out of the way. I already met with an advisor and they suggested I enroll in the Health Studies certificate program so I can get Financial Aid while I do my pre-reqs and they were super generous in my opinion with transfer credit given that I already have a degree from them. They are requiring me to take Chemistry 151, Biology 151, and to have a passing score on the TEAS test before they’ll let me apply for the RN program. I also have to take Anatomy and Physiology 1 & 2 and General Microbiology but I think I can wait to do those once I start the program? I have read so many differing opinions about nursing in general especially now after the pandemic and I guess I’m just nervous because I truly don’t know what to expect. I would love to hear any advice that you all have for maintaining the work, life, school balance as well as your experiences and where you are in your journey. Thank you in advance! 😊

2023.05.28 15:04 DIYDLH Basement Door Install?

Currently have this “custom” door in there now from the last owner. Have never installed a new door and figure an unfinished basement is probably the best place to practice.
Top of the concrete is 80” from the floor.
Couple questions - what are those rusted metal rails that are bolted in? Should those be removed?
Should I remove everything else that’s currently in place and frame it out for a pre-hung door?
80” from the floor to the top of the concrete, would I want a 32x78? Maybe something like this:
Thanks for any advice

2023.05.28 15:03 Ibrahim2714 I want to create a question-answering system that would work on a specific study manual.

Greetings, I have a project coming up where I have to create a question-answering system that will give accurate responses to questions from a study manual.
I searched and found out that I can use the BERT transformer architecture for this. Further searching told me that the BERT model is already pre-trained on the SQuAD dataset and that I only need to fine-tune it on a dataset created from the study manual.
I have a couple of questions.
First, I learned that the fine-tuning dataset will be created manually and will be in the form of a JSON file (which I prefer). I was wondering if this is the only technique by which I can fine-tune this model, or are there other ways.
Secondly, I have the theory down in my brain, but I have zero knowledge of how to actually implement all of this. So I wondering if I can get an overview on how to tackle this project,

Hey hey there y'all :D
I wish to take the first step into meeting more people, and hopefully earn a long term friendship or two in the process! I'm 22(soon to be 23) and live in Greece (GMT +2)
Some stuff about me: major hobbies at the moment include gaming, cooking and writing/stories. As I am currently serving in my country's military, due to how Greek laws work, I might not be able to do as much as I would want to do, but I am a very talkative and friendly person nonetheless, so I bet I'll make it worth your while!
Other interests of mine include: adventures, traveling, the arts, animation, mysteries (especially of the weird/uncanny type), all sorts of lore and more!
If all that catches your eye, my discord ID is MedLabMech#1765
Please please please include an introduction about you in your message. Otherwise I'll probably be scared off/ ignore/be too awkward to make meaningful convo

2023.05.28 15:02 effy_stonem_1234 Cubao and stuff.

Nasa Cubao ako kanina to have lunch and visit music stores to check out ukeleles and guitars. I saw the Fender Venice in peach. Ang ganda ng fretboard pero ang mahal ng price. I got mine for a much lower price sa tiny music store sa Quiapo.
Naglakad ako towards Gateway from the parking spot tapos na-realize ko, wala talagang personality yung mga bagong malls. So I decided to go to Ali Mall. I love places that transport you to their heyday. Ali Mall has that charm.
I especially liked that alley na may mga antique stuff. To my right was a (pretentious) vintage clothing store that I basically ignored coz I don't like rip-off stores like that. Most of the clothing that they sell are also sourced online. In short, these people don't get their hands dirty sa mga ukayan (fight me). Then there were the antique shops. Hindi naman ako pumasok sa antique shops dahil hello, halimaw sa banga. But I stood outside and checked out their window displays. May art shops din. Sana lang marunong ako mag-paint. I also gawked and geeked sa vinyl store and naalala ko na may 5 months ko na nga palang pinag-iisipan kung bibili ako ng player. I guess that was a sign.
I felt I needed to pee so I looked for the restrooms. Nung nasa cubicle na ako, I sent a friend a message. "Have you ever wondered about the plethora of memories of different lives made in Ali Mall?"
May babaeng sinagot niya manliligaw niya sa Ali Mall. O kaya, may kuya na nakipag-break sa jowa niya sa Ali Mall. May college kid na na-inspire mag-banda dahil nadaanan niya yung mga music shops sa Ali Mall. May lalaking naglakad aimlessly sa Ali Mall dahil ang daming problemang iniisip. May Cubao office girl na bumibili ng lipstick sa Ali Mall para pretty siya sa office kahit maliit ang sweldo niya. And the list goes on.
Tapos ako, ayan. Nag-trip lang naman ako sa Ali Mall tapos biglang ang dami ko nang naisip.

2023.05.28 15:02 Myragarm Best tips to avoid dripping on the sides of the flair signature basket?

Hello, I only really use my flair when I travel or when I go to a family members house. It seems like more times than not I get dripping on the side of the basket. I use about 14 grams and also let it pre infuse for about 10 to 15 seconds. But once I start using more pressure instead of getting a nice single stream I get a very poor stream with drips on the side of the basket. The shots also don't taste the greatest when this happens. I saw in another post that someone reached out to flair about this issue and they told him its a design flaw with the basket. Anyone have any tips that helps with this issue? Thinking about getting a flair pro 2 if I can't resolve this issue. (also using a Kinu grinder)

2023.05.28 15:01 CheddarJade Batman: Ways of the Phantom (fandom roleplay)

PASSWORD LOCKED! Message me the password; no password no roleplay. So read everything.
This is something that could be a possible double up (OCxCC).
So when the name "Batman" is mentioned in here; I am using it loosely. I am okay with Bruce, Thomas or even Terry as it would feel like it could fit with any of them. Just let me know who you're most comfortable with.
A being was helping Batman, remaining unseen. Until they do show themselves to him. It was a phantom; she was helping him for such a long time, in hopes he would help her in return. The Phantom was names Veronica Savage; no relation to Vandal Savage or his family.
She had been by Batman's side for a couple years, during that course of time the phantom world begins to try and merge with the mortal world. Nobody knows how or why it was happening - it just was. They begin to speculate if was because so many individuals didn't have the chance to rest or was given a proper burial.
But it began to not make sense as a lot of phantoms began to show up. Someone was summoning them to allow them to roam. But who?
🖤3+ paragraphs with 7+ full sentences MINIMUM! Don't make me do all the work. 🖤No text slang! 🖤3rd person point of view only. 🖤you don't control my character, like full on actions (ex. She walks into the room) - but somethings are okay (ex. Shoves her and she stumbles). 🖤don't get upset about the decisions my character (aka me) makes - if you have something planned that involves my character let me know. 🖤romance is a possibility - must be slow burn only. 🖤answer the question (this is the password); who is your favorite sidekick to Batman? 🖤you must be okay with writing your own scenes - there will be times characters are not interacting with one another. 🖤don't spam me, I have a life outside of roleplay being a full-time college student. 🖤if you lose interest let me know instead of dragging it out.
🩵and we can move to a different platform if you want. Just let me know.
Make sure to message me the password. Don't comment it or you will be ignored.

2023.05.28 15:01 KooKooKangaRoo42 My Chiari Surgery Experience

Hi there,
Just sharing my Chiari Surgery experience for anyone who is thinking about getting it done and wanting to hear about people's experiences/recovery.
I (43 f) just had my Chiari Decompression Surgery with duroplasty and C1 laminectomy at Weill Cornell with Dr Stieg in NYC on Wed 5/24 and was discharged home this AM (Sat 5/27). They were actually ready to discharge me on Fri 5/26 even — but because I live so far (5 hrs) from the specialty center, I felt more comfortable staying one more night, which they were fine with.
For background, I was just diagnosed with Chiari I.5 malformation (13 mm cerebellar tonsillar descent, with the obex or bottom of medulla being squished down there even lower) on MRI on 5/5/23. (No syrinx in the spine, though, fortunately.) I am so glad the neurosurgeon got me in so fast. Doctors including my neurologist had been blowing off my increasing symptoms for the past 5 years. (“Oh, it’s probably just migraines — oh, it’s probably just cluster headaches — oh it’s probably just neck strain.”) So frustrating! But once I got the MRI showing the Chiari, I just took the initiative to find a neurosurgeon to consult with. And Dr. Stieg’s team was very good about getting me in quickly. He did a full brain and spine MRI, with and without contrast, and consultation with me within 2 weeks of my reaching out to his team. I could already tell within 1-2 days post surgery that essentially all my major problems had been resolved (though of course there’s a lot of neck stiffness and soreness from the surgery itself, but it’s already so much better just 3 days post-surgery).
I had problems since at least 2018 including: Chiari headaches (excruciating, incapacitating collapsing to the floor moaning with my head in my hands headaches, triggered initially by coughing episodes — but then progressively over time even by just standing up too fast, yelling for the kids, bending or tilting my head wrong, by the end even sitting up or turning over in bed by the end). Also terrible chronic neck ache at the base of the skull (that I thought had been caused/worsened by car accident whiplash, but now I think 100% caused by the Chiari). And increasingly weird neurological symptoms due to the compression of the brain stem, including: trouble swallowing (seemed like I accidentally choke liquid down the wrong tube every single day when I took a drink), excessive drooling, numb/weak hands/clumsy hands, poor balance/coordination (walking into walks, trips/falls going up and down stairs, a few faint episodes), excessive yawning, and hands(not just a little — like shaking violently after every yawn or sneeze).
My surgery was at 7:30 AM. I had to show up at 5:45 so they could get me checked in and everything. The neurosurgeon and anaesthesiologist were very good about explaining what would be happening and answering any questions I had. They took special care talking about my anaesthesia (because in my case a sleep study had shown that the Chiari puts pressure on my brain stem, and has caused me to have central sleep apnea — different from obstructive apnea. It’s the brain signals telling my lungs to breathe don’t always get through at night. So that is part of why I’m always waking up in the middle of the night and still feeling tired in the morning.) So concerns about that were thoroughly discussed and they would use a CPAP mask to help with my breathing if needed. They still went with Methadone as IV painkiller as planned. The surgery took about 3 & 1/2 hours. (They told me 2-3, so pretty close). They will put your IV in of course and give you something to relax you and put you to sleep and you won’t remember anything afterward except them telling you the surgery is all done and it’s time to wake up.
I’m not going to lie, there was some pain obviously. But for me, it was manageable —never more than a 6-7, and with the Oxycodone and Tylenol they gave me, got me down to a 3 (on a 10-point pain scale) pretty fast. For the day of the surgery they had me on 10 mg Oxycodone dose immediately afterward, tapering down to 5 mg. I had some nausea the first day after surgery too, which the anaesthesia and pain meds can cause, I guess. But they gave me something for it whenever I complained and whatever they gave me worked quickly. The steroids for swelling also tend to cause some side effects -- high blood sugar, which they did finger pricks to check and which were always a little high -- though they didn't end up having to give me any insulin. And heartburn, which they gave me protonix for every morning. And Maalox once, when I complained about it still bothering me
They actually tapered me just the day after surgery down from Oxycodone to just regular Tylenol and muscle relaxant every 8 hours — but would check in with me regularly about pain of course and offer Oxycodone as needed or if it got worse. I did take just ONE more dose of Oxycodone that next night, the day after surgery — I think it’s my own fault for doing a little too much walking and self-directed P/T (trying to turn my neck a bit side to side to loosen the stiffness) that first day. So maybe give it a few days before you do much active attempt to turn/stretch the neck. (Don’t be a hero by trying to taper too soon — the one extra dose of Oxycodone I asked for that night provided me a lot of relief and allowed me a good night of sleep and was feeling much better the next morning and able to taper to Tylenol without a problem.)
But by two days post-surgery, I was doing really well and managing with just 3 Tylenol and 1/2 muscle relaxant every 8 hrs. Steroids too to keep down the swelling every 6 hours. The recovery has really been so good so far from what I had feared. Not so bad at all. They did give me some Oxydone I can have at home if pain flares up again, but I don’t think I’ll need it.
Literally, as soon as I woke up from surgery, my very first sip of juice that I had, I realized I could swallow again without choking. By the day after surgery, the numbness in my hands had mostly abated. (That one I was worried about, because I know sometimes if nerve damage goes on too long it can be permanent so I thought the numbness and hand weakness might not resolve). I could sit/stand/turn over in bed etc without triggering the usual Chiari headaches. Some other symptoms that I didn’t even KNOW were related to my Chiari (a nagging constant earache in my left ear that my GP just always told me there was nothing wrong when she looked in there — miraculously also gone! Must have been due to blocked CSF or something).
I am already so happy I had this surgery done, even though my husband was nervous about it happening so quickly. I’d been suffering for 5 years already, with it impinging a lot on my quality of life, ability to play with or carry my own kids, and neurological symptoms can get worse over time, so as surgeon said — now that you know the diagnosis and likely solution, what are you waiting for?I do realize that everyone’s story is different and I am quite lucky that (so far) everything has gone according to plan, with such rapid and obvious symptom relief for me, incision healing seeming to go so well, etc — so bear in mind everyone’s situation and recovery is different and consult closely with your professionals. This is just my own story. But I had a *very* good experience and would definitely recommend the Chiari surgery to anyone who was suffering the level of symptoms that I was having.
I will second the recommendations others have made about taking stool softeners (and laxatives or suppositories if needed to get things going) in your first few days post-surgery. I am very sensitive to the constipating effects of opiates like Oxycodone (I went 8 days without pooping after my C-Section — by which time it was very tough and painful, as you can imagine). So although they were giving me stool softeners — Senna, and Miralax every day — when I still hadn’t gone for 3 days, I asked for prune juice, and when that didn’t work, and I was still straining and having trouble passing, I requested Milk of Magnesia. It gave me unpleasant stomach cramping for a few hours, but was worth it to me, because it got the job done so I was all cleared out by the time I left the hospital, which was important to me. Given all the warnings they give you about not straining on the toilet because it can increase CSF pressure in the head and potentially cause your dura patch to leak.
I showered for the first time the morning of my discharge (3 days post surgery). My surgeon said ok to shower, but don’t submerge — no pools, hot tubs, etc as that can increase risk of incision infection. No rubbing any lotions or oils back there, though bacitracin or neosporin to put on with sterile gloves/hands is ok if incision is itchy. They removed the bandage 2 days after my surgery and said everything looked beautiful. (I can PM you a picture of the shave line and incision of you want. You can’t even notice the incision or that they shaved any of my hair when my hair is down.
Just a note, following surgery, that first day I found it more comfortable to rest on my side than my back because the neck incision pain hurt too much while on my back. But by 1-2 days after surgery, lying on my back with head elevated was fine. I second the recommendation for buying a wedge pillow in advance of your arrival home. (I didn’t know how helpful that elevating/reclining hospital bed pillow was until it was gone!) Right now I’m stacking pillows, but I think a wedge would have worked better.
They told me no bending, lifting, twisting - don’t carry anything bigger than a gallon of milk for 6 weeks. If you drop something and do need to pick it up, bend at the knees. No picking up kids (at least, not if the one who wants picking up is 5 years old and 40 lbs, like my youngest!). Avoid driving for 2-4 weeks if you can, both to avoid needless jostling of head from sudden stops , and strain from having to turn your head too much. Do P/T if recommended.
I did have one slightly scary experience during my very early recovery (harmless, apparently, but freaked me out since I had never experienced it before). I had an episode of “vasovagal syncope,” which involves an automatic bodily reaction where your blood pressure and heart rate suddenly drop precipitously. (It happens to some people when they see needles or blood or get stressed or scared — essentially “fainting.” But never happened to me before). Apparently, it is not uncommon to occur after anaesthesia, brain surgery, etc.
So this was on the very day of surgery. Remember my procedure only started at 7:30 AM on Wednesday. But after dinner the same day, around 6:30 pm, they were already encouraging me to try moving to a sit-up chair for a while — with the idea that if that went well, we’d go on to do a little assisted walking (I guess walking as soon as you can helps with recovery time, reduces risk of blood clots, etc). So I sat up in a chair for about 30 minutes, not even standing, just sitting in a chair. And was fine at first. But then my legs started shaking a lot and I started to feel very nauseated. I asked the nurse to get me something for the nausea, afraid I was going to actually throw up, and while she was gone, started feeling even weirder - like flushing hot and cold sensations, sudden sweating. More shaking. Just feeling weird and terrible. My husband said I turned white as a sheet and my lips as white as the rest of my face. My husband got the nurses who helped me lay flat, and neuro came in a minute later to see me and ask what happened. He said what I described was a classic vasovagal syncope reaction - just put some fluids in my IV and had the bed headrest inverted a little (so my head was slightly tipped back — I didn’t like it, because put a little more strain on my neck, but he said just for 5 minutes or so to get the blood back in my head.)
After 30 minutes lying down with my legs up and my head back, I was pretty much back to normal and feeling better. Just a little scary because I didn’t know what was happening and hadn’t experienced it before. And usually I guess people experience it when standing up and walking, not just sitting in chair, so probably took nurses and dr a little by surprise too. But neuro team said it’s not too uncommon after surgery.
I didn’t do any more sitting that night. But next day after lunch, neuro team told me to go ahead and try again — and I had no more problems. Did plenty of sitting, standing, and walking with my husband. They said, by the way, that during your 6 weeks initial recovery, do as much walking as you want — but nothing more vigorous than that.
I am so happy already about the improvement in my quality of life without those horrible headaches and neck aches and other bizarre symptoms. I wish my doctors and neurologists hadn’t been such dummies and had figured it all out 5 years ago… but better late than never! The 5-hour car ride back home from NYC yesterday was a little rough (Memorial Day weekend traffic didn’t help), but I am glad I went the route of seeking out an expert Brain & Spine Center that really knew what they were doing. 4 days after surgery I am sitting here in bed at home with my cat in my lap (and warning the kids not yo jump on the bed) and feeling so much more optimistic about the future.
Wishing you all the best with your own journeys and recoveries. The first 4 days post-surgery really hasn’t been at ALL as bad as I feared. I was scared because I’ve never had surgery other than C-Section before, but it has bern totally manageable with the pain meds they give you. And neck stiffness by day 3, already SO much better than day 1-2. Hang in there!!!

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 70%. (I'm a bot)
KYIV, May 28 - Russia unleashed waves of air strikes on Kyiv overnight in what officials said appeared to be the largest drone attack on the city since the start of the war, as the Ukrainian capital prepared to celebrate the anniversary of its founding on Sunday.
In what also appears to be the first deadly attack on Kyiv in May and the 14th assault this month, falling debris killed a 41-year-old man, Mayor Vitali Klitschko said.
The pre-dawn attacks came on the last Sunday of May when the capital celebrates Kyiv Day, the anniversary of its official founding 1,541 years ago.
Air Force said on Telegram that Russia had targeted military and critical infrastructure facilities in the central regions of Ukraine, and the Kyiv region in particular.
10/10] Mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko uses a mobile phone ahead of "Special Dialogue with CEO's" meeting in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, January 18, 2023.
"Today, the enemy decided to 'congratulate' the people of Kyiv on Kyiv Day with the help of their deadly UAVs," Popko said on the Telegram messaging channel.

2023.05.28 14:59 eternal_blackness17 Help: Dental Anxiety/Severe Gag Reflex

Alright, so I have little to no dental experience. I would go regularly as a child, but I’ve never really had my teeth properly cared for by a dentist due to a lack of insurance/parents who didn’t prioritize my dental needs growing up. Both of my parents didn’t have good teeth either, so genetics aren’t in my favor. When I was a teenager, my mom was sick with cancer, so priority didn’t go to my teeth at the time. I’m now in my late twenties trying to get my life together, including my teeth with the help of my Dad.
My teeth are not that bad, but they are not great. I haven’t had a cleaning in a long time. I know I have a few cavities. I do have some crooked teeth on the bottom front and some overcrowding on the top because I should have had some teeth removed as a child and then braces. I have a very narrow, small mouth. I do not smoke and I only drink alcohol occasionally. I am very hygienic so I brush and floss thoroughly. I still have my wisdom teeth, they are impacted (yes I know I need to remove them), it’s just a matter of funds since I’d be paying out of pocket.
I have severe dental anxiety due to a lack of experience with going to the dentist on top of an absolutely horrible gag reflex. I can’t even complete X-rays it’s so bad and my mouth being so small, doesn’t help. I’ve tried all of the tricks in the book like the salt, numbing gel, wiggling my toes, breathing through my nose, etc. None of that has ever worked for me. I had horrible experiences in the past as a child/pre-teen with dentists because of it.
Back in early March, I had a top pre-molar chip off a very tiny piece so I made a dentist appointment. I went this past week, the earliest I could get an appointment with this office, and it was a horrible experience. I felt judged by the young female hygienists and the dentist, who did not give me proper care at all. I was scheduled for a cleaning, half of the reason I went in, and didn’t even get that. All they did was a panoramic X-ray and dental probing (I have never heard of this and no one I know knew what it was or had ever had it done either, I am aware of what it is now, but was not told it would be a part of the visit). I gagged a few times when they tried to probe my very back teeth, but was fine with the rest. The dentist hardly examined my teeth at all and said the chipped tooth needed to go along with my wisdoms (like I said, aware my wisdoms need to be removed already and I told her that). The dentist had only completed dental school not long ago and I just felt they lacked much experience and empathy. They told me not much could be done because of my gag reflex and essentially scolded me for having one plus for my inability to complete all of the X-rays. I understand that a gag reflex can make their jobs difficult, but that is their job to take care of people’s teeth, so wouldn’t they have experience dealing with that? Wouldn’t they be patient and work with someone? It felt like I was not worth their time due to my gag reflex, so I was just quickly seen and dismissed for $300.
It took me so much courage to go to the dentist to begin with. I left with more questions than answers, not to mention it made me feel more embarrassed about my teeth and my gag reflex than I ever was before. I don’t think I will return to that office based on my own experience and the reviews of others with similar experiences who felt the dentist had no experience, didn’t receive scheduled cleanings, or just felt uncared for. I’m now even more scared to go again and see someone new. I feel like I will never find a patient, kind, and experienced dentist with experienced staff who can help me after this failed attempt. Ideally, I feel like someone who is older with a lot of years in the field would be my best bet.
I know I need to get a few fillings (not sure how many cavities I have because they didn’t even tell me that), my wisdom teeth removed by an oral surgeon, and possibly Invisalign down the line to fix the overcrowding issue, but I’m terrified of how I’ll ever do these simple things because of my gag reflex, which just worsens my dental anxiety. I’m only 26 so I feel I shouldn’t be so quick to just pull any teeth aside from my wisdom teeth, so I think I should get a second opinion before I’m quick to have the chipped pre-molar removed. I’m terrified I won’t find someone willing to be patient and help me though. For me, the gag reflex is not a mental thing. I won’t even be thinking about it, yet I gag when brushing my own back teeth.
Should I get a second opinion before I schedule to have this pre-molar removed when I get my wisdom teeth removed? Does anyone have any advice on how I can maybe get rid of my gag reflex or how I can find an experienced dentist who will give me the care I need, despite my gag reflex?

2023.05.28 14:58 cumonyourtitss Thermal paste that came with the box or buy one?

Help, I just want to know your opinions if I should go with pre applied thermal paste that came with the cooler (It's in a little pouch) Deepcool AG400 plus. Use it for now then buy a much better thermal paste in the future when the time comes or just buy (a much better paste) now then use it now for better temps.
CPU: Ryzen 5 5600, non x COOLER: Deepcool AG400 PLUS

2023.05.28 14:58 BioNewStudent4 Being “Pre-med” is bad?!?

What ppl think: Cutthroat, no social life, arrogant, crazy, and awkward.
Actual definition: someone learning and trying to be a doctor
There’s a stigma against “pre-med” even being “pre-med” just because of a small group of ppl who fit in the first category. Don’t let some few bad apples ruin “pre-med” for the rest of us. Because for the rest of us, we genuinely just wanna do good in the world. We gotta work together, nobody ever did anything themselves. Everyone had a coach, mentor, or friend help them out. PEACE

2023.05.28 14:58 yoyikix194 42F getting temple area headaches for a month like 3-4x/week, not caffeine headache

Hi and thanks your time :) 42f 5'0/130, no meds or smoke/drink/drugs. Im getting temple area headaches (one side at a time, mostly left side but sometimes right) for a month like 3-4x/week. They AREN'T severe, just very annoying. I can't tie them to anything. steady coffee intake, 16 oz/day, no meds or new things I'm ingesting, and nothing else I've been doing I could to tie to that as a cause other than some extra work/stress at work, but mild stress and I've never gotten headaches during work stress before.
keep getting temporal arteritis when I'm searching but are those more severe headaches? these aren't severe and they last a few hours, not chronic/no head sensitivity when they aren't present. I can feel my pulse in temples when I feel with fingers.
I really can't afford a visit, labs, others expenses if possible it's something not as serious as TA.
Thanks again all!

2023.05.28 14:58 Immediate-Hotel-44 My husband said he wanted a divorce and I'm not sad

A lot of things have happened in our short marriage. My husband (23M) and I (23F) met senior year of high school and started fooling around as teenagers do. I went off to college an hour away after highschool and he stayed home and eventually left for the military (first red flag). The summer after my first year of college, he was coming back and forth from where he was doing training and I fell pregnant. We decided to get married and our little boy was born. After our son was born, he was stationed overseas when our son was just two weeks old. I spent a ton of time trying to get everything prepared to move overseas and we finally arrived just before our son's second birthday. So at this point, we had been married two years and not been physically together for basically any of it. We never lived together so I assumed there would be some growing pains with that, along with the transition of my husband going from essentially bachelor living (drinking with buddies and doing whatever he wants, another red flag), but I was not ready for the actual amount. I basically moved across the world to take care of another alcoholic kid. Then, the summer following me moving here, I found out he cheated on me multiple times while he was here partying and I was solo parenting in the states trying to get over here. I always said if he ever cheated I would leave him, but I decided to try and stay and work things out. Things were still not great, but better communication and more cooperation. Then all of the sudden, my husband comes home from a work trip acting weird and says he doesn't see us married long term and wants me to start going back to school and getting set up on my own. The more I think about it, the more angry I am. He put me through so much and I dropped everything and moved my whole life to follow him. But also, the more I think about it, I feel free. I feel free from a marriage where I'm basically alone, and taking care of another person I did not give birth to. I'm only really sad for my son, because with his dad being in the military he won't get to see him much, but we have so much family who loves him with all their heart, I know he'll be fine. I'm ready to move on with my life and find someone who won't treat me like dirt.
