2023.06.09 16:50 Is_That_Riley I want to know what im feeling is OCD related before talking to a professional

I don't know a lot about OCD but throughout my life ive had odd behaviors and i want to know if these sound OCD related before speaking to someone. Im aware you're not doctors but id like to know if im being over the top or if this sounds relatable to anyone before furthering this.
I've been a constant nose pickenail bitespot picker for as long as i can remember. This is pretty normal for a lot of people but it doesn't necessarily feel like a bad habit for me it feels compulsory. For example for the spot thing i need to constantly check a spot in the mirrowith my fingers and that if i do it will help in some way/make it go away when it's obviously not the case. These feelings are accompanied with a sense of panic/anxiety that only makes the checking and worrying worse and once i start it escalates to where i disacossiate and its the only thing i can think about. I feel like im stuck in a daydream almost.
Ive had an appearance based issue develop in high school where i would obsess over the way my hair looks qnd felt the need to touch/check it every few minutes as it never felt right. In the ost few years ive had a problem with the clothing im wearing (mostly fit). I wont like how wrinkled or how a certain pair of chinos fits for example and the obsessing and checking will start. I will panic and impulse buy new clothes as a solution in the worst case. I will trim my beard and discover ive missed a couple hairs and i will not be able to relax until this is dealt with. These are just some examples and people misinterpret the obsessing and mirror checking as me being vain but it seems like a neccesity.
Importantly id like to add that these feelings arent constant. If im busy and in a good mood im usually fine, i will sometimes have the issue in the back of my mind but i can be distracted.
When ive got time to think i tend to spiral into the these thought patterns and they will be occompanied by nail biting, picking, overthinking, anxiety the lot.
This post is partially a vent as i feel particularly fustrated but if any of you can relate to this please let me know as i want to gain a better understanding of why i feel this way.
Thank you for reading.

2023.06.09 16:50 Calicat05 Can run 5k on the trails, but hitting a wall at 1k on pavement

I graduated from C25k a few weeks ago and have been running 5k 2x weekly and 2 miles 1x week, all on trails. I decided to move to road running because that's where all the local 5ks and 10ks are ran, and I'm hitting a wall at about half a mile in. My shins start hurting, my calves get tight, and I feel like I'm working much harder to go a fraction of the diatance (heart rate is around the same).
I'm running in a pair of Saucony Cohesion 11s, they probably have around 50 miles on them. I also have a pair of Saucony Excursion 10s I use on the trails.
I know my running form has room for improvement, but I'm unsure of what I need to do to change it. I'm in a rural area, so there aren't any running coaches or specialty stores around.
Should I see a physical therapist/my doctor or am I overthinking this and just need to keep doing it until I get used to running on pavement? As soon as I stop running my shins and calves feel fine. I had shin splints in high school from running in the hallways for sports practice, this feels similar but nowhere near as bad. I gave been icing and taking anti-inflammatories after a run.

2023.06.09 16:50 Matild4 So what's a sublime trilemma anyway?

So this is a sort of all-purpose post explaining what this webtoon is all about. Like your average transbian, I too am moved to tears by media where I'm represented. Doesn't have to be trans girls, but as long as it's girls being super gay I'm always touched. I've been a sort of on-off weeb since my teens. After reading some manga masterpices (YagaKimi *cough cough* Aoi Hana *cough cough*) I felt a need, or rather an obligation to create something of my own, a homage, but also something that didn't exist but that I badly wanted to exist. I did draw some comics in my teens, it was some god-awful Naruto doujin that I never finished. Then I went to art school thinking I'm gonna get better at drawing, but then I studied sculpture somehow and didn't really get much better at drawing :D And now I'm back at square one, but I have the determination of a professional, which is something I guess. Sublime Trilemma falls squarely in the "Japanese high school romance" genre, so you can expect some of the beloved genre tropes. You can also expect all kinds of LGBT representation, genre meta commentary (specifically in regards to yuri) and a very wholesome story with a healthy balance of comedy and drama. The name is, well... I want to be able to convey a sense of yuugen, and although I don't think I'm quite there yet, it's something to work towards. And trilemma, well... You know what that is ;)
I've set up a Patreon with the intent of posting NSFW content there. There will be more of it as the series progresses, but because Webtoons is for prudes I can't post everything there. I don't really feel bad paywalling content, since I'm shedding sweat and tears working on this series day after day and I live in a country where I can't ask for money without giving something in return anyway, so there you have it. In any case, I'm thankful for any support, even if it's just leaving a comment or something. The social aspect of it is one of the only things that keeps me motivated.
I'll be posting updates here and on Patreon. At the time of writing this post, I'm working on page 2 of the 4th chapter.

2023.06.09 16:49 3030thirtythirty Easiest way to deal with being not able to pull because of locally modified files?

Title basically. I am a computer science teacher but I am not really experienced in using git. When I was a developer (before becoming a teacher) the companies I worked for used CVS or SVN.
Sometimes, I split up my students into groups of four, with each group getting its own repository to work with. I also talk about branches and how to create them and this works pretty "okay-ish" but since my students are new to the whole thing (they are 16-17 years old teenagers) of working with git, the following situation comes up way too often:
  1. Student X works at school and pushes his/her commit with some modified files to the origin.
  2. Student X goes home and starts working on a different topic but within the same repo BUT FORGETS TO PULL first.
  3. Student X is done but because he/she forgot to pull first, he/she now has a problem because the local repo is behind the origin branch and a "pull" cannot be done.
What would you guys advise me to tell my students as "best quick fix"? Please keep in mind that most of my students are pretty unexperienced in working with computers. They may have never seen a command line before and they know git only from working with Visual Studio Code. That does not mean that I do not want command line solutions. But maybe there is a way to handle this without entering multiple commands.
(I know you can stash your modified files. But sometimes because they forget to pull before they work, they may be several commits behind the origin. So even if they stash their local changes and then pull the changes from origin they will come to the point where they want to pop the stash and may be overwhelmed with the conflicts/changes they would have to solve manually.)
If there really is no easy solution then this is ok with me. I have to tell them again and again to check for incoming changes first, I know. Appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.

2023.06.09 16:49 SomeoneIll159 25 Tips to Increase Your Productivity as a Student

Every student faces the challenge of distractions sapping productivity. As a student, it is important to be productive in your studies. However, distractions can often get in the way of productivity. It is important to identify when you are being distracted and find ways to minimize those distractions. To become a successful student, do not get discouraged, do not give up rather, work towards developing each of the study habits. You will then see your grades improve, your knowledge grows, and your ability to learn and assimilate information creates.

25 Tips to Increase Your Productivity as a Student

Below are some tips to help you stay focused and productive in your studies:

1-Get a good night’s sleep :

A good night's sleep is key to improving your focus and working memory. You should aim to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep every night. If you sleep for fewer hours or have a poor quality of sleep, then you will most likely be tired in the morning. To achieve this, you must keep distractions away from you while you sleep, such as by turning your phone off or putting it on silent.

2-Eat Healthily:

If you want to be more efficient, you should be more energized. And if you want to be more energized, you should eat healthily. Too much junk food and sugar can lead to severe energy depletion, so it's important to consider changing your diet. You should eat fruit and veggies, nuts & seeds, whole foods, and fish. Consuming healthy foods like this can help improve your cognitive function and aid your studies. Try changing your diet gradually and don’t forget to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.

3-Build a routine:

One of the most important things you can do to be more productive is to have a work routine with set times for waking up, working, and taking breaks, as well as for errands and socializing. Dividing up your day can help you to avoid feeling like you need to spend hours upon hours at your desk, struggling to work. A more effective way to work would be to set a rough schedule of working hours and to ensure that you have little rewards and breaks throughout the day.

4-Build a workspace:

The productivity of most students stems from the productivity of their environment. If you're looking to increase your productivity, one way to do so is to set up your room or workstation in a way that makes you feel more productive. If you find that you are still studying straight from your bed, you should put time and effort into creating a more productive space for yourself that will not encourage you to be lazy and unmotivated.

5-Choose open and light space to study:

Your choice of study location is crucial to your studying habits. If you study in a dark, cramped, and secluded space, you will likely find yourself wanting to put off your work.
If you want to study productively, you should pick a bright, light, and open space. It'll help you stay energized and improve your focus during the day.

6-Set small goals:

You will have various goals you will want to achieve throughout the span of your life. This is a never-ending process. The best way to deal with this is to set smaller goals that all work together to achieve the larger goals. Not only does achieving small goals help you to better use your energy and focus, but it also makes you feel more confident and motivated. Achieving your smaller goals makes you psychologically, emotionally, and skillfully ready to take on bigger ambitions.

7-Time management:

Another important part of productivity is learning how to manage your time well. If you have a couple of things to do, do the important ones first and then the less important ones. Getting your work done within your deadlines will allow you to have a more balanced and fun life at university or school.

8-Attend Your Classes :

It may seem obvious, but there are students who regularly skip classes. Though it might be discouraging to have to get up early, spend the day at university, and attend certain classes, regular attendance can make a big difference in your productivity. Once you get into the habit of attending class every day, it will be simpler to pay attention and understand the course material. Furthermore, it provides an opportunity to get noticed by the professor and gain some extra points, which can also serve as motivation to stay on track and be more productive.

9-Take notes:

You should get into the habit of making notes about everything you feel is necessary right from the beginning. Taking notes has the benefit of allowing you to always refer back to them. Taking notes during class not only helps you pay attention and will also be useful when you're trying to decide what to study for exams. Re-reading your notes is a much more efficient use of time than re-reading your entire textbook.

2023.06.09 16:49 TheGreatAndMightyNeb New position anxiety

Holy crap... You'd think I was either still in clinical training or just out of school. I've been a nurse for ten+ years outpatient, and just took a care management job. The staff has been great, 6 weeks of close training, and lots of support but woah... So anxious.
Dreading going to work, and feeling like hammered dog shit at the end of the day. This is as anxious as I have felt since contemplating my divorce.
It will get better... In 6 months.

2023.06.09 16:48 memesrthemeanstosucc Looking for edible plants/roots for NC

Hello garden people! My non profit after school got a grant to garden and grow food for the local food bank. Im in charge of planning/curriculum for it, and have a geology background so I’m familiar with USDA growing zones and soil types. We have silty clay as a base and purchased topsoil, and are in USDA zone 8a Would carrots, herbs, potatoes and tomatoes grow well this year in this area? A friend of mine also recommended ginger but I was under the impression that it takes a while to grow. Again, we need edible plants to donate. Thank you everyone for your help! <3

2023.06.09 16:46 Ghostepeppermint Today I probably ruined my life.

I'm 24M who grew up in a fairly wealthy family for my country's economy, i have to admit i'm very immature, do to many things being solved for me, which im not proud to say.
I was holding a job that i didn't really like, the work enviroment at first was great but it slowly worsen, if you're curious to know i'll explain. I volunteered my house for a party and some of the attendees trash my house, i was suposed to cook some meat bbq style which is tradionally done on social gatherings in my home country.
However i was doing everything by myself, the rain came pooring down on me like the november rain music video and everything was ruined, i did my best and cooked the meat half drunk on a stove top and oven wich didn't turn out great.
Next day work's group chat everyone was upset at me because i didn't cook the meat on time. I asked for help multiple times ans nobody helped, i got insulted on a personal and profesional level.
I didn't think much of it until monday came and everyone was distant to me. I felt really isolated and uncomfortable and i decided to quit yesterday. The eviroment was getting to hard for me to handle, and i only took the job to save some money to move away to a new country in the first place.
I was suposed to be leaving in july 6, so it was basically just a couple of weeks. However i decided i needed a break from my coworkers and work.
To clarify i still live with my parents, wich to some of you in america might look really bad bud trust me, here down in south america is nothing but common, i was saving to move away like i said.
I woke up today and my parents where yelling at me very nasty things kinda reminded me of that twisted sister video where the father yells at his son. But it was not normal yelling, they were calling me very abusive names, and basically treating me like garbage, the nail on the coffin was when they called me a disgrace and a mistake. That how can i at my age not graduated from college already and achieve everything on life.
This really hurted me because i have very strong complexes do to me being adopted. They kept on telling me how much of a disgrace and shame i'm to family and how i make them look bad as parents. This is not the first time they've done this. They always use verh hurtful words or physical violence to prove a point. I know this might sound weird to you up north but it's very common and normal to beat up your kids in third world countries.
I grew up suffering from bullying, and being told by many teacher's im a failure and i'm going to hell, for my music, my haircut and my personality. I'd like to clarify im not a college dropout, i stop studying law school to pursuit and culinary carreer my parents where very supporting i really appreciated that however, they always make horrible comments about me not being a doctor like them or my other family members.
After 2 hours of being yelled at, my mom threatened to throw my drums away and kick me out of the house and stop supporting me in me moving away. And yes, im not ashamed of telling you all that my parents where supporting me on moving out of the country, it's never easy. Anyways they said they will no longer help me do to me being a quitter and a loser and disgrace and all of that.
So i just walk out of the house, with some of my stuff. I told them i will no longer need their money or help, that im not moving away and that i'll pick up my stuff next week.
I have no where to go, im literally wearing basically my pjs on a wendy's as i'm typing this. I know i sound very inmature but dealing with bullys and abusers all my life has taken a toll on me.
This is also a very tough decision for me do to having a long distance relationship of three years with a wonderful woman i met online. And we've been visiting each other for the past three years. I was very happy to finally close the distance, however that wont be posible for at least a couple of years from now, do to the recent events on my life.
I feel lost and i feel like i have nowhere to go.

2023.06.09 16:46 OlayErrryDay Thoughts on James Hardie type siding?

Hello fellow old home enthusiasts!
I live in a part of a major metropolitan area where all the houses are large and built from 1910-1925.
Many beautiful homes and some really well done renovations.
One thing that has been throwing me for a complete loop are the house renovations that include this siding type. The houses no longer look like they are from 1915, they look like they belong in a modern cookie cutter upper middle class suburb.
I'm not entitled to tell anyone what to do with their house, but this siding complete transforms the home from a 100 year old beauty into something that belongs next to a modern high school and it drives me nuts.
Am I the only one that sees it this way? Am I too old and too ornery and need to shut up? What do folks think of this new trend?

2023.06.09 16:45 NightOwlGangRiseUp New GLASS CASKET drops TODAY!! Listening now - thoughts??

Respectfully, let's keep the conversation focused on the music in this thread. 👍
We Are Gathered Here Today was in heavy rotation the last two years of high school for me. I remember the first time I heard Glass Casket was on a late-night metal segment on the radio; they played "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made" . I remember being especially captivated by that awesome chugging outro that starts at 3:47. From there I got into the rest of the album, and imo there is not a bad track to be found on it.
Desperate Man's Diary was a great follow-up. Tightecleaner production (although the rawness of WAGHT is missed here) and a bit more expanded in their sound, it's a quality record from start to finish. Adam Cody's vocals are one of my favorite aspects on both records. His deep gutturals and piercing highs perfectly complement the intensity of the music.
And now, 17 years later, we finally have new music! A four track, self-titled EP, Glass Casket is sadly only about 13 minutes long. My initial impressions are positive, although I do wish after so long we had gotten a full-length. My hope is that this them sort of "testing the waters", to see what kind of reception/response it'll get. Perhaps we won't have to wait nearly two decades for a true full-length.
I'll have to listen to these tracks more to really get a proper feel to them. But I do like what I hear. 🤘

I work at a law school and am hoping to be admitted to it as well by the EOY.
I’m specifically interested in Criminal Defense and was wondering what kind of things you would want somebody with this plan to know or do for you that might not be immediately obvious?

2023.06.09 16:45 ncharles05 A 12 year Difference

Hey everyone I just wanted to place to lay out some thoughts i've been having.
Last year my wife gave birth to our second daughter. We had our first one in 2010 after only knowing each other for 2 months! I was a real loser at the time; worked at a minimum wage job, no college, sharing a studio apartment with a friend of mine (literally slept in the closet), no car, I biked and took the bus everywhere, doing a shit ton of drugs, and properly supporting my drinking habit/addiction. At the time I was doing a lot fo "soul searching" and when she told me she was gonna keep it, I made the decision to stick it out with her and see where it would take us. I found a better paying job, and started making arrangements to get back into school and pursue the dreams I had. I spent a lot of time away from my daughter, especially once I went back to school with crazy late nights. But the reality is I was terrified to be a father, I did anything I could to stay away from the home. Even after school and in my first job I had to "prove myself" a lot and "network" which meant long nights most of time, and more time away from the family. This is NOT to say I was never there, we made sure to do a lot of things as a family, especially when my daughter got out of the toddler age. So we have a lot of core memories and good times to share as well....
Cut to now where I have the career I've always wanted, a house, a car, pretty much reached what was once thought of as the middle class, so it's still a challenge to afford things sometimes. My wife got unexpectedly pregnant after 3 miscarriages and I was so scared, with a 12 year old now we had gotten used to a certain lifestyle, going out more, traveling more, freedom again, but my wife was so happy what could I do?
Well now our daughter is here and it has been wonderful! But it has hit me how much time I didn't spend with my now 12 year old when she was a baby, and it makes me sad. I grinned so hard to help provide a decent life, and ended up making a lot of the mistakes MY parents made with me. It feels nice to have a "second chance" to experience a lot of the things I didn't get to with my now 12 year old. It has help me foster a better relationship with her now as well.
Overall I just want to say to first time parents, take some time to really appreciate the infant stage. Let them get to know you through touch and feeling. Watch them learn to roll over, sit up, crawl. Try to make the time to enjoy these times because when it's gone it's gone forever.

2023.06.09 16:44 ash2625 Fell sick yesterday the day before my AFM exam and missed it today. My request for reschedule/withdrawal was denied despite having a medical certificate.

I don’t know if its the stomach flu or food poisoning. But the day before the exam (TMI) I was having loose motion and severe abdominal cramps with a little blood. Hadn’t slept at night cause I had to wake up every hour to go to the bathroom. My situation didn’t get better in the next few hours so I went to the doctor, got a sick leave certificate and sent it to ACCA. I wanted to attend but I could not even sit up properly and obviously I don’t wanna shit my pants during the exam (centre based).
What i didn’t know is, apparently they made the cancellation and amendment process more strict. And since i wasn’t hospitalised they didnt find my case serious enough despite me explaining over the phone. Last year around the same time I had faced almost the same issue and my case was accepted so naturally I applied this time without a second thought. I understand if they didn’t want to refund my fees, but at least a rescheduling would have been good.
My parents are telling me its okay, I was sick and money is not important. But I feel so horrible, I feel like a failure because today was supposed to be my 5th AFM attempt. I kept failing repeatedly cause of family issues, and I panicked and procrastinated. The one time I prepared better this happens. I have been stuck with this paper for a year now. The people around me have already gotten internships/jobs or passed ACCA and I had to put aside my career for a year now after graduation to support my baby brother with developmental problems in school. I also feel super shitty about the money I lost today and for the previous attempts as well. Our financial situation is not the best right now too.
I just wanted to rant over here to people who understand the struggle of ACCA. Been sleeping the whole day to avoid thinking about this and since I was in pain. Thanks for listening.

2023.06.09 16:44 thevoidcaptain Pineneedle Geese and the Passers-by

I was driving home from work the other night. Two motorcycles ripped past me like I was standing still. I was doing 80. A couple of miles down the road I saw brake lights. I pulled over to see if I could help. There was a woman standing on the shoulder on her cell phone. I could hear someone cursing at the top of their lungs. The bike was in the pines on fire. One rider laid on his side piled up. His body twisted. His friend was talking to him, I couldn’t hear what was said. I ran up to them. The crotch rocket was ablaze at the base of a tree. I had always heard that you shouldn’t move someone that’s been in an accident because you might injure them further. But the fire was growing. We had no choice. His friend and I lifted him and carried him up he slope to the asphalt. We laid him down and I put his helmet between my knees. He was broken. I could feel that he was broken. When the police arrived an EMT relieved me and I stood on the shoulder watching as they attended to him. After working 60plus hours at the refinery that week I was exhausted. The fire grew and grew and I was no longer helpful so I left. I wrote this poem over the next week or so.
(Pineneedle Geese and the passers-by don’t ask why)
The turnpike shoulder
full of dead geese in spring
brand new Pumas
full speed grease in pines,
the garden state is burning
forward the median
The rain light full on light rail head case
ready set for a Friday night at the shore
toward a meaning
a slipshod living
asbestos siding
whipsaw giving
the best is hiding
O’er rumble strips guided
Our broken bodies lie
Ill costumed for the slide
Dead geese on the shoulder cry
Majic came
To the states in ‘03
Sylvester in ‘04
Big Lu form little Peru came in two thousand and two;
From Poland
From Ghana
From Lima;
From cracked land
From fortunes pilfered
From hidden gems;
The world gave us her donations and we gladly accepted
Let’s all occupy the same space And pretend that we are in control
Lets all utilize similar skills And pretend that we are in control
Purposely poised to be our best selves
Positioned by chance
Propositioned by chance
Equal opportunities presented presently
perfunctory purpose provided
by need
Our tired
Our hungry
Our poor
Majic quit smoking cigarettes when the baby was born but he has been on nicotine lozenges for four years now
Sly is a high school drop out One of the smartest men I’ve ever known
Lu, a compassionate man, a lapis lazuli man, drives his Toyota everyday, back and forth to work It has over 300,000 miles on it.
I clean the bathrooms and I mop the floors
I wipe down the microwave
inside and out
I toss heavy bags full of garbage into reeking dumpsters
I can hear the flies buzzing as I approach
When I lift the lid, the flies burst forth
A fountain of dreams
A cloud of smoke, blue-bottle buzzing
The language of radiation echoing across empty space
An Intermittent flash
As the defunct star from which it emanates rotates
Washing their hands in their own vomit
Burning themselves against the sun
Falling to the land that is mine
The land that is yours
The land that was made for both of us
We ply our trades
Turning with the world
Burning with each other
Burning with envy
Burning with hate
Burning with pity
I put up a small sign that warns of wet floors, so that no one falls, and if they do they can’t sue the company because the sign was there and they chose not to heed its warning
When my wife lost the baby these guys took me out for drinks
I got drunk:
Taking a piss in the alley behind the bar
I looked up
Between the slick brick buildings
The moon echoed in the puddles
The sound of a muffler-less car
I searched for shooting stars
My dick in my hand
But I saw nothing save stationary stars, the ones that are always there
And I cried
Majic called me a cab
Sly paid the fare
Lu buckled me in and tipped the driver
I made it home ok
and went to work the next day
Compromise is a thing meant to pacify you
Understanding is a curse uttered in your sleep
A promise you will keep
Something you’ve given
The vastness of the sky at night is a lie that sounds different than the lie of the sky during the day
Ferrous moments Kept in by the stars
Whilst fishing on the beach a rocket took off from the crypt of Cape Canaveral
the diminishing vapor trail burns lower and lower still Casting its leaden tail upon the face of the earth
Compromise is a lie told to you
by you
you can’t escape the atmosphere
Their ain’t enough fuel in the world

2023.06.09 16:44 SpellboundTutor Dealing with Emotional Numbness / Dullness

Hey everybody!
So a little bit of a background about me to set the stage, if that's okay. I'm 34. I'm a cis gay man. I am Autistic and I deal with anxiety, depression, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Over the past couple of years, I have managed to crawl from rock bottom to achieve goals with my mental and physical health I never previously would have thought possible. I've become someone I can really be proud of. Lost over 100 lbs, going back to school learning something that I both love and am talented with, working on straightening out a lot of things in my life I wasn't able to.
However, I have noticed, in recent weeks and months, that my emotions have been... dulled, I guess. And that wasn't made sharply apparent until the other day when I got the news that my rent check had bounced. Were my emotions fine, I'd probably have been an anxious mess. Crying, swearing up a storm, beating myself up over it, the whole nine yards. Instead, I just feel this sharp pain in the core of my chest that I can't get rid of. I was advised to try screaming into a pillow to force it out. I screamed my throat raw into a pillow, but... there was no emotion attached to it. All it did was make my throat hurt.
My therapist and I have been working together on this and the way I kinda visualize it is like a pipeline that hasn't been used in a very long time, so the contents of the pipe solidified and hardened, causing a blockage of emotions that I am struggling to clear away so that I can feel again. He advised that I attempt trying to pursue acting in a casual sense, utilizing physical and verbal action to reinforce that mind-body connection. Classes and such. But that hasn't been an available option for me right now.
It's been about 30 hours since the initial shock of my check bouncing. For a mercy, I was able to adult and get the wheels in motion in order to get the issue resolved quickly, so that's one upside to this. But I find that I can't cry, I can't get angry, I can't be happy. Everything is just... grey. And with that comes a lack of motivation to take care of myself, much less work on the things I both want and need to work on to keep my life going in a positive direction.
With this post, I am seeking two different, but related things:
1.) Short-term treatments or exercises I can do in order to, at least temporarily, free me from this bottled up emotion that's causing me physical pain in my core.
2.) Long-term treatments I can then do on the regular to help me work through this dullness and allow my emotions the release they desperately need.
I am more than happy to answer any relevant questions to help others help me as needed. Thank you very much for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you!

2023.06.09 16:44 eggnog_2go My sleep cycle has been off

I always end up sleeping at 3 am, 4 am etc. I try to sleep at 1am or before and it's just hard.
This happened after I got fired from my job due to that they don't like me working less hours and I was only working 10 hours per week as it's my only availability. I also had to drop out of school due to recurrent infections and doctors advised I can no longe pursue a degree in healthcare as I'm prone to health issues. These all at the same time.
I got in so much depression and stress then my brother got COVID while I was immune compromised. After him, my infection came back. Then after me, my boyfriend who I live with got sick as well. Then after him, my cat got sick too and her bills were the worst out of all of us.
It was a hard month.
I got a new job now but I fear due to my messed up sleep scheduld that is hard to fix. I don't know how to fix this.
I tried that waking up for the whole night and it's not possible.

2023.06.09 16:44 Due_Lengthiness_5690 Advice on pursuing MBA

Hi All,
Looking for advice and information on going for an MBA. Have a BS and MS in mechanical engineering and looking to add an MBA to pursue more supervisory roles. I was looking at a program that would fit my companies tuition reimbursement program and it seems like Kansas U (online) fits the bill. I know the name probably doesn’t move the needle but if I’m not able to do a T15 school does it matter? Is doing a fully online MBA a bad move?

2023.06.09 16:44 GuyWithLongEyelashes Nursing has wrecked me mentally

Hey, nursing has taken a huge toll on me mentally and I'm really regretting entering this field. I know that everyone in this field is suffering right now but I just wasn't a good fit for nursing in the first place.
I'm currently working in the OR after realizing a few months post graduation that floor nursing was not for me. It's going ok and is definitely a stable job, but honestly getting to this point, of simply surviving as a nurse, has ruined so many other parts of my life, most notably mental health.
Before nursing I had a very active mind. I loved daydreaming, reading, and strategy games. Had a 4.0 in high school/college, and put my all into presentations, challenging classes, and being a lab assistant. I was pretty witty, friendly, and lived with some good friends. I wanted to get into nursing to help others and because medicine/ the human body really interested me.
But for some reason, nursing school and working as a nurse wrecked me. Classes got me so anxious despite doing well in them; I got good grades but didn't retain info like my classmates. I didn't get along with the other nursing students and often felt left out and alone. While most people took to clinicals really quickly, I dreaded them; I never knew what to do and felt overwhelmed the whole time. I should have quit but just kept pushing, despite it going so poorly that I had to go on meds to keep going.
When I graduated, I was an anxious mess. I felt like I knew nothing despite graduating with high grades. Plus my critical thinking skills felt shot. My brain feels like it went from wanting to explore and learn to just wanting to block out the chaos and protect itself.
Now I'm 25 and feel like, besides making a livable wage, my life is worse than it was 2 years ago. My mind is blank most days and I feel so apathetic; I don't really try anymore, whether that be at or outside of work. I don't read, just watch tiktok. When I play strategy games, I notice I do very poorly and can't plan/critical think as well as I used to. I don't actively pursue my old hobbies nor exercise as much as I did before. I feel more shy, less creative, and lost a lot of friends because I couldn't maintain those relationships with the stress of nursing. Currently living with my parents.
I don't know what to do guys. I want to climb out of this hole. I want the last 2 years back. I want my old brain back. I want out. Maybe I can switch jobs/careers in a few months but I don't know if I have the energy to try.
Do you guys know anyone who was in a similar position? Did they get out of nursing or got a desk job? Are they doing better now?

2023.06.09 16:43 DrakeB2014 Looking to form a Day One Team for the new raid in Season 22

Look, I've made this post before and it didn't go anywhere because people are too hung up on raid reports and "skulls on belts" but I have no choice because my clan is full of folks who're already in preset teams like high school cliques so I'm stuck sifting through the Salty Spitoon once again.
I am looking for folks to form a day one raid team! I don't need you to be Enlightened or Rivensbaned but I do need you to be someone who raids regularly, is up to date on DPS metas and is willing to be part of a team as opposed to a know it all who doesn't communicate or listen to the team.
I'm not expecting you to be a lowman raider or a flawless raider but I do expect you to like, play enough that you WON'T crumble to a Fallen Acolyte on contest mode.
I am not opposed to breaks to strategize, take a breather or whatnot but I do intend on going until time's up or until we get it, whichever comes first.
With that in mind, if you are interested in forming a team. DM me or reply here and we'll set something up! Ideally I'd like to raid with people to see if we vibe and whatnot because no one wants to spend 24/48 hours with someone they find irritating. That goes for me too, you may find me irritating and may want to bail, that's fine. As long as we communicate all this beforehand, it should be GGs
TL;Dr: I want to form a raid team, be a regular raider, not necessarily a lowman or flawless raider but experienced, don't be a cunt, play nice with people.
