The importance of taking care of your health

When it comes to your health, it is essential to prioritize and take good care of yourself. Health is a precious commodity, and it is important to recognize how important it is to be healthy and how much it contributes to overall wellbeing. Taking proper care of your health can help you prevent diseases and illnesses, feel better, and live longer.
It is important to ensure that you are eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Eating the right kinds of food can help provide your body with the nutrients it needs in order to function properly. Exercise not only helps with maintaining a healthy weight but also helps to improve your overall mood.
Getting enough sleep is also essential for keeping your body functioning at its best. When you don’t get enough rest, it can have a negative impact on your energy levels and mental state. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night in order to keep your body and mind healthy.
Lastly, be sure to take the time to relax and take care of yourself. Stress can have a damaging effect on your physical and mental health, so it is important to find ways to de-stress, such as by practicing mindfulness, meditating, or engaging in activities that you enjoy.

2023.03.22 05:00 Character-Loquat-383 I really don’t know why he’s with me I look nothing like them I wish I could just emotionally check out please help? 23F 30F 32F 40M

I’ve been with the same man for about five years now, it’s been on and off very toxic if I should say the least. I recently lost our first baby, well my first baby by him. he already has two kids it was a shock to both of us things got way too complicated he’s cheated on me before, he’s always cheated on me actually. He would always blame it on me being a stripper but even when I stopped dancing for an entire year like he asked me to, the cheating never stopped. He will be loyal to me for a few months then it’s back to the same thing. I feel like the only reason that I’m with him is because I don’t have any money, I don’t have any family, being with him I’ve developed low self esteem and major insecurities, he’s the only man I’ve basically known and been with my entire adult life so I’m very comfortable and attached to him I may also have Stockholm syndrome. He’s very emotionally and physically abusive. He’s put me in the hospital once and injured me many other times. Just recently he slapped me, about a week ago. I met him when I was 18 I’m now 23. All the girls I catch him cheating with are white Spanish girls with long dark hair and nice bodies mostly from surgery with tattoos vs me I’m African American course hair dark eyes brown skin i don’t have any surgery I have nice boobs but I’ve always struggled with my stomach/ back fat and I don’t have the biggest butt like he’s used to. (He’s from Miami he’s only ever dated plastic women) He recently made fun of me last night because he says I have a dark asz crack and I need to “bleach” it I always feel very insecure with him and it just makes me wonder if he can cheat and have all these thirsty Spanish girls all over him why does he continue to stay with me. He always tell me he doesn’t care about them but I find it hard to believe. If he doesn’t care why is he still in contact with them? I really don’t believe I’m his type at all. I found pictures in his phone of his ex wearing lingerie and heels just to sit around the house while we were broken up while I wear big t shirts and shorts to go to sleep and during sex. He’s told all of these girls about me and they don’t care. Just recently one of his exes told me she was pregnant by him before after I revealed my pregnancy to her and advised her to stop messaging him and his other ex is currently pregnant and I’m scrambling my mind wondering if it’s his baby because he cheated on my during my pregnancy now I wouldn’t put it past him. I’ve tried reaching out to this girl before she never responds she just keeps making sexual advances towards him and it really stresses me out. It’s hard for me not to feel a strong hate for her. What makes it worst is that his mom is friends with both of them. I decided not to keep the baby for this reason. We live together now but I wish I could emotionally detach from him so I can make clearer decisions and not be phased by him. It’s so hard to look at him without thinking about all the bad. I really wish I only saw him as a friend but the love I have for him won’t fade. It’s hard I always feel embarrassed around him like I can’t speak up for myself. Can someone please give me advice on how to loose feelings for someone while in a relationship.
Also I forgot to mention these girls are in their 30’s my bf is 40.

2023.03.22 04:43 stitchrock Successful IM and surgical subspecialty couples match: our tips and tricks

Buckle up y’all—this is lengthy. It also assumes the reader has a basic understanding of how the couples match works.
In the years leading up to the 22-23 ERAS and match season, I’d been very anxious and stressed about couples matching. I desperately searched for success stories and found many, but they were frequently for matches like IM + peds or EM + neuro. I had a hard time finding any specific advice or success stories of couples in a similar position as us specialty-wise. So here I am, wanting to offer some advice as well as some hope: despite what you may see or hear, couples matching into a competitive specialty can be done.
I applied IM and my SO applied a very competitive surgical subspecialty (think neurosurgery, ENT, or plastic surgery). Would rather not be specific for anonymity’s sake, but I think my tips apply regardless of which one. Gonna call it surg sub from this point on for clarity. SO has been set on surg sub since early M1 and never wavered. SO had a pretty competitive application. I think mine was good for IM as well. We had Step scores in the 250s-270s and generally checked all the boxes (didn’t have any empty ERAS categories, but also weren’t over the top with ECs). We did not dual apply.
Leading up to ERAS season:
I didn’t do away rotations because they aren’t necessary for IM. SO did 3 away rotations, all in regions that our school is not located and that we had less connections to. Our aim here was to demonstrate that we were truly willing to go anywhere for residency. I do think this was helpful in garnering interviews (more on that later).
SAVE UP YOUR LOAN MONEY. The whole match process cost us about $5-6000.
Choosing programs to apply to:
SO applied to around 100 surg sub programs. Thankfully IM is so prolific that every institution with surg sub also had IM. I applied to all of these without researching the programs. Then came the work: deciding which extra IM programs to apply to. This was a key strategy of mine. In cities where SO completed an away, I applied to at least 2 IM programs, even low tier community programs that would normally not seriously consider my application. I also applied to more IM programs in cities where the IM program at the same institution as the surg sub program was top tier and I was worried about my odds of snagging an interview. Doximity and prior year IM match spreadsheets on Reddit were helpful for this process. I applied to well over 100 IM programs.
When I couldn’t get an interview at an institution SO had an interview at, some of those community programs really came through for me, and I think it’s because I applied to them when ERAS opened instead of late in the season. They knew I wasn’t fucking around, and that I was serious about going there.
Signaling and geographic preference:
I will focus on IM signaling as I think the strategy mattered most for IM. I signaled every IM program that my SO completed an away at that same institution, plus others that my SO and I discussed. For geographic signaling, despite us not having a true preference, I signaled the maximum of three regions that held about half the programs I applied to. It was a numbers game for me, even if I had to give a fluff/nonsense reason for why I geo preferenced that region in the supplemental application. I think both of these came through. I got 4/7 signals, all of which were T20 IM programs. I also got a ton of interviews in a region that SO didn’t do aways in and that we were not from, which I attribute to my geo preferencing.
Interviews:
When I got an IM interview, I emailed the IM program PC that my SO was applying surg sub and would also appreciate an interview at their institution. SO would also email surg sub program PC and let them know I had an IM interview, and that they would love one too. Vice versa for SO’s interviews. We also did this for programs in the same city but not same institution as the one who had extended the interview. We had pretty fair success with this method. Try searching Reddit for an email template, I’ve seen great writeups about this in the past.
Couples matching often came up in my interviews, but I didn’t ask for interviews for my SO at institutions where they didn’t have one. I wasn’t bold enough for that, but I’ve heard of people doing it with success. There were times when surg sub asked SO about my IM interview invite status and got me one after the fact.
Sometimes you might hear that you should schedule interviews later in Dec-Jan if you’re couples matching to leave room to cancel unwanted interviews. I did not do this. I preferred to leave Jan as open as possible for last minute IM interviews, and I ended up being really glad I did this because dates get limited the later you get an invite.
I cancelled only two interviews where SO didn’t have an interview in like a 4 hour driving radius. SO cancelled one interview where there was a scheduling conflict. We went on 25-35 interviews each. Thankfully our school was very understanding of the time off we needed to accomplish this.
During interview season, I kept a personal rank list and so did SO. We didn’t share these with each other, just talked generally about programs. The reason we did this was to avoid influencing each other before it was time to build our shared ROL. I knew I was at risk of ranking an institution more highly if I knew my SO loved it.
Ranking:
When building a couples ROL, you can rank up to 300 combinations. We ended interview season with about 1000, which was clearly an issue. We used Google Sheets to work on our ROL, and it took around 20 hours. We narrowed the list of 1000 to same city, driving distance, and direct flights, leaving us 400. We culled the direct flight options to flights 2.5 hrs or less. This got us to about 250 combinations. Our last 50ish ranks were combinations of “I match, SO doesn’t” and “SO matches, I don’t.” YOU SHOULD INCLUDE THESE “NO MATCH” COMBINATIONS NO MATTER HOW LONG YOUR LIST IS. The ONLY reason to leave them off if you’d both rather go unmatched than be separated. We put the combinations of “surg sub matches, IM doesn’t” higher on the list than the “IM matches, surg sub doesn’t” because it would be easier for me to reapply IM than SO reapply surg sub. Essentially, we prioritized SO's match above my own, which for some people may be a hard pill to swallow.
Building the ROL was the most stressful thing my SO and I have ever gone through together. You must know your priorities: is it to live together, to be at your favorite programs, to avoid being unmatched at all costs, etc? It will be really hard to make a list if you don’t know what you value as a couple. You also need to decide if your top ranks will be something like #1/#9 or a combo of #3/#3. There may be significant disparity between how you feel about programs in a combination. We both had one program that were absolute vetoes regardless of how the other person felt about the associated program. These went to the bottom of the ROL.
Please watch all the NRMP videos about couples match and building your couples ROL! We only put our ROL into NRMP after it was final in Google Sheets.
Match week:
On Monday, we found out we matched! I NEED someone to lobby NRMP to include a “distance between programs” line on the Monday email for couples. The wait for Match Day not knowing if we matched apart or together was BRUTAL. We stayed home on Friday to open our emails together. We got the news we matched our #3! Knowing we’ll get to spend the next several years in the same place was a huge weight off our shoulders.
The couples match was a huge endeavor, and I went through a lot more than the average IM applicant. It was worth it to try to be with SO. I can’t tell you that it will work out the way you want it to, because so much of it is individual. But I can share our story as an example. I hope you found this helpful!

Hello. I would appreciate if anyone could go over this weird short story I wrote. Any suggestions?
I am in 9th grade and after last year being entirely online as well as the first year of this semester and learning nothing leading to a total collapse in my writing skills. I'm writing one of the many graded texts I've written in a long time. I attached a screenshot of the short story and I'm asking for general advice and suggestions on how I can improve. The plot is very strange and I came up with it after thinking for some time. The themes and deeper meanings are strange if I were to divulge about them to you. This short story, or whatever this written text even is happens to be so stupid. I just realized how dumb what I've wrote truly is after reading it. I came across one or two topics whilst brainstorming involving my life, but I just stopped there and wrote about that instead of developing more topics and ideas. This whole topic limited me in terms of using senses and literary devices like similes or imagery. It had to below 1000 words. I've already written this text of total stupidity and now I do not know what to do. This is barely even a short story, it's just this very weird chronological description of this person that just doesn't sound like a story. I might have to rewrite this. I am not productive with my time. My teacher might think I am on crack or something for writing this, so I want to know if it seems like that before I actually submit this. Comment or PM for suggestions.

2023.03.22 03:24 dogsruledaworld Saving up for Surgery!

No, I do not look anything like that meitu picture in real life. I don't live out on my own yet that way I am going to be able to save up money for surgery. I don't have to pay major bills or rent, so this is the only way this is going to work out for me. My goal is to go from ugly to pretty without my glasses on. I don't know if I am going to do contacts or eye surgery, so I don't need to wear glasses anymore. I am so tired of wearing them and need a change. I will be having my surgeries first, then my vision. I am a grown ass woman and I can make my own decisions for myself.
Ways to Up my Game, Goals, and Expenses to Alter my Looks Drastically on the Outside! Things I NEED to Save Up 💲 for! 🌏❤️
All of this is going to be expensive, but it's going to be worth it!
I know surgery is is risky, but I know everything's going to work out and ensure my journey is going to be a positive one.
I deserve to see myself look stunning after all the insecurities that I have. I have a ton of insecurities which are not permanent because I will be doing something about changing my face. You don't know the struggles I face every day. I was born ugly. I want the benefits in society. I really want to get the pretty privilege so bad. If surgery is going to make me happy, give me the boost of confidence to be happy, then so be it. I can't tell you how excited I am about the prospect of being more beautiful. I am so stoked!! I can't wait! I have yet to speak to the doctor yet. I am going to. As far as the price tag 💲 goes for surgery, I may or may not have to do a lot. I am not sure yet. I am not a doctor. 🤷‍♀️ How many procedures? I'll do whatever it takes to become a pretty girl for a change. What procedures I am going to NEED on my face not my body? How long will it take me to save up? Every bit of my "hard earned cash" is going to be worth it!
Just the thought of having surgery is making me grin from ear to ear. Find a surgeon with excellent credentials. Agrees to do it and knows that I will look way better after surgery. After surgery, I am going to look like a totally different person and see my own drastic results. [My full blown makeover] My looks are what I am looking to craft.
I will be saving up for plastic surgery. Go from ugly to pretty and land me some temporary jobs, but not when I get my working line german shepherd. I am doing what I want and that's all that matters to me. My time and energy will be spent altering my looks on the outside.

2023.03.22 03:16 moustachelechon What are breed standards for?

Ive noticed people talk a fair bit about breed standards in the dog communities of Reddit. What color of dog can and cannot participate, what ear shape is appropriate, of the dog needs ear plastic surgery, if the dog should have it’s tail cut off. But like? If the slight appearance difference of the dog (like a color) isn’t hurting it, why shouldn’t that dog be allowed to participate in shows? If the dog behaves fine, who cares if it’s 0.1% not purebred? Why couldn’t it perform? Am I missing something?
I have trouble wrapping my head around the reasoning behind breed standards being kept the way they are. If we’re optimizing for health, why are flat faced dogs, dogs with many folds, dachshund and other « pure » dogs with anatomy that is highly conducive to health issues allowed to compete? I’ve been told Doberman should have ears docked because of ear infections, but if that’s the reason, why not cut all of the floppy eared dog’s ears?
If we’re optimizing for appearance, isn’t that super subjective? Why would only « pure » dogs be beautiful?
If it’s productivity, mixed breeds can also be excellent workers (think of the Mira dogs) and some breeds really wouldn’t be able to work much at all but are allowed to compete (pugs).
What’s the ultimate criteria here? Who makes these decisions? Are they updated regularly? Are they made by unbiased veterinarians?

2023.03.22 02:35 suwhoooop nmom pressuring me to get more plastic surgery

Hello, I want some advice on how to deal with this situation and I’ll try to keep this as short as possible.
When I was 15 my mother made a comment about how “I would become pretty after I fixed my nose like her”. I was insecure about my nose for years after.
In the beginning of the pandemic I was 18 and my mother suggested me getting a nose job as it would be a good time to recover because of lock down. By this point I wasn’t dying for a nose job like I had been a few years ago but I am interested in beauty and aesthetics and knew my nose wasn’t conventionally pretty so I thought why not.
My first nose job was completely botched, I hated it and couldn’t look at my reflection without wanting to cry. My nmom blamed me for “begging to get it and rushing the process and not vetting the doctor enough” even though this doctor was her close friend and her choice for who would do my nose.
Following year we went abroad and I got a a revision. I love it, its not completely perfect but I accept it and it truly it just my nose but better (and not to mention so much better than the first botched job).
Over the past nearly two years since my nose job my mother has been pestering me and making insulting comments about my nose and how I need to schedule the third nose job asap and using a lot of my insecurities against me. Saying that when I smile it looks wide and ugly, when another family member takes a picture of me and sends it to the family group she will reply: your nose looks so crooked here, you look like insert whatever rude comment because of your nose, still needs another operation. etc. etc.
Furthermore, I get botox in my underarms to prevent excessive sweating and once we were together she was speaking to the doctor the entire process and making suggestions as to what filler and botox he should inject in me; including lips, chin, cheeks, and eyebrows.
I don’t know what to do anymore, the more and more i hear her comments everyday that more the imperfections are highlighted and Its stressing me out and weighing me down.

2023.03.22 02:24 Lipstick_On Of all the things I can control, there’s one thing I can’t change… technically speaking

I always heard how much I look like my nmother. I never saw it until a few years ago. The older I get the more I see her eyes when I look at myself and it’s unsettling me a lot today for some reason.
I always thought plastic surgery was a vanity thing to make yourself look like someone you idolize, but now I wonder if there are people that do it so they stop looking like someone who hurt them.
Would I get surgery to change my face? Nah. But I don’t think I’ll jump to the same conclusions about people who have done it anymore.
Just thinking out loud I guess. I’ll probably have to take this one to a shrink LOL.

2023.03.22 02:16 Tasty-Royal-4427 Fear of surgery and general anesthesia

How did you get over your fear of surgery, specifically for an elective surgery/plastic surgery? Scared of being put under but this is always on my mind to get something done for myself.
How did you just go for it and what helped with your anxiety over it? I’m sure if it was a surgery that I needed, it would be a bit easier to process.

2023.03.22 01:46 Sailing_Grey_Rabbit Being 'positive' all the time for the convenience and comfort of others is fucking exhausting.

Warning: long rant.
People love to go on about how people with chronic illness are negative and a drag to be around. But you know what is more draining? Pretending to be "positive" all the time to make others feel more comfy while we have to suffer in silence. I am so fucking tired of it.
I've had to hear from a friend recently, who I haven't seen in over 4 years, that she didn't reply to my messages or make any mutual effort to see me when she was visiting our home town (Cape Town, South Africa), for THREE MONTHS, because she "needs to be surrounded by light positive people", and "in all honesty, you're a lovely person but your energy is very heavy". This is what she says to me, literally only basing it on my Instagram stories about my chronic illness over the last 4 years, and nothing else. She just decided for herself already that I was going to be depressing to be around, before even giving me a chance. Does she think I don't want to be surrounded by 'light positive people' either?? As if I enjoy being depressed and only talk about my illness and shitty things? I wanted to see her to have fun like we used to, and to actually get my mind OFF this shit, it's all very ironic.
She now lives in San Diego. The last time I saw her was November 2019, I was x5 more able bodied than I am now and we had such a fantastic adventurous day at the beach in Simon's Town (quite a far drive from where I live, but I still made the mission there to see her) and all along the coast, as summer was starting. It was right after a break up with someone I was absolutely besotted with who dumped me out of nowhere after 9 months of a long distance relationship, someone across the world in the Middle East who I'd only get to be with every 3 months for a month at a time, either in his country or in mine.. a lot of money, energy and time gone to waste from that. And I honestly had so much fun that day with her. It really cheered me up. I thought we'd be able to do it again, but at a more manageable pace for me because I can't drive that far anymore and I can't be active for hours and hours like I could back then. I just had a harrowing break up but I was still cheerful, positive, laughing and joking around, and being fun, even though I was suffering in pain physically and emotionally. I wouldn't have behaved any different this time around had she decided to see me.
November 2022, she's now seen my posts for the past few years on Instagram about how my Fibro has gotten worse, and when I went through long covid and microclotting for half of last year, and another break up at the height of my illness. But she tells me she's coming here in December and she promises we'll see each other, because she came last year (before I got LC) and didn't even tell me, so I never saw her. Having both Fibro and Long Covid & blood clots, at the same time was my lowest point in terms of my history of health issues (I'm now 28, I've had chronic pain for 14 years, diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in 2019, had a Thoracic Outlet Nerve Decompression surgery and cervical rib removed, from my collar bone area, right before the pandemic started. Diagnosed with Fibro May 2021, and still have not found a way to manage it, it's just gotten worse and I now identify as disabled).
For context I was first diagnosed with PoTs last August (I made a post about it here) and then 2 months later after not getting any better from heart meds and the non-pharmalogical methods, I went for testing and was tested positive for microclotting and hyperactive platelets, and diagnosed with Long Covid. I went on treatment for the microclotting and I got better. Now my PoTs symptoms were gone, I just had Fibromyalgia, again, but with all of the stress I endured from last year it probably got worse. I went through another break up for a month during my treatment, my bf of 3 years, who I am now with again, but did not have his full support when I needed it, either. I started to get physically better last year November-December (during the breakup) and started to socialize again. I had to. I was heart broken and trying to get my life back. But it has never been the same again since before I got sick with LC.
I currently feel like I have no friends anymore. This is the loneliest I have ever felt in my life. Even with all of my health issues since I was 15, I've still always managed to maintain an active and vibrant social life, until last year. I thought this would pass once my LC got better and things would shift back to how they were before. But they haven't. It's been 3 months since I finished my treatment, but people forget that I'm still alive, that I am trying to readapt back to a semi-normal life. They know my closest/best friends abandoned/ ghosted me at my sickest without explanation, and about the breakup, they know I have little to no support. They know how badly I need people in my life. I've expressed this both directly to them, and publicly on my social media. But I have given up. Because Nobody. Fucking. Cares. I'm not the person I used to be, I can't go out and party til 4am anymore and drink and do drugs (even with my Fibro I pushed myself just to socially survive, and ofc I got worse from doing that). These people do plenty other types of chilled out activities that I can do, but they still don't invite me. I introduced people to each other and while I was sick they formed a friend group, now they do everything together, they have their own Whatsapp group, but without me. These people wouldn't have ever met each other if I didn't introduce them, before I got hit with Long Covid. Now they are attached at the hip and I'm no longer part of the equation.
So this girl who now lives in San Diego now was my best friend in my teens. I saw on her Instagram stories that she's already back in the US, after ignoring my efforts to meet up since December and avoiding me for 3 months when she was here. I know she was in my neighborhood, my brother and other people bumped into her, but she still didn't bother to pick up the phone to tell me she's right on my door step. And so when I asked why she didnt, that's when I got told that my "energy is heavy", even though she hasn't felt my "energy" IRL in +4 years, before I even knew I had Fibro. Honestly, the way people have treated me is making me more depressed than my illness is, at this point. Like I am no longer human. Like I simply do not exist anymore. I am so tired of censoring my pain and suffering in hopes that my friends will come back and like me again. I can't do this anymore. I fucking give up.

2023.03.22 01:38 cjtsang I’m so tired

I just don’t see a point to my suffering, I don’t understand it, I want to know what I’ve done so wrong to deserve everything, I’d say sorry and do anything to make it stop! I already have a burial plot in my home town due to my family buying some after my father over dosed on a cocktail of pain meds, I know I’m not perfect I’m sorry if I could be better mentally and get plastic surgery to look better, if I knew if I could just change I would I’m tired I’m so tired I have nothing to keep me here, I honestly believe even my boyfriend is probably just waiting for me to realize that he doesn’t actually like me, I’m just tired I’m living any more, my closest friend knows what to do when I die

2023.03.22 01:30 visforvendetta777 My 17 Year Old Brother's Dream

The primary source (good luck):
Jesus... i legit like am seeing the cuh differently now after last night... 1/3rd of the dream was i waa trying to create a sea creature sanctuary on the coast... there was this crazy rope bridge... and all was good in the begining.. but then when i started getting boxes and stuff and i went from cardboard to plastic cuz after i put some creatures into cardboard i realizesed it was not gonna work cuz its cardboard... and then da cuh and matt started picking up the seacreatures and harrasing them (suprisingly my mind didnt default to burning and mutilating (that comes later dont worry)) and so i got EXTREMELY agitated and i got fucking actually furious at da cuh and mini cuh cuz they WOULDNT LISTEN AND LEAVE THE SEACREATURES ALONe. And so god no there was so much other shit it was actually so amazing the shore and shit so detailed... actually most detailed dream iv ever had and that saying something....... iv had CRAZY dreams about being in a droid factory from starwars and shit
But that was yeaaaars ago back in homeschool days and another dream that i only told da cuh about that was shorter but very detailed indeed also from a long time ago involving 2 anime-esk cat girls on cubberly roof... no more shall be detailed on this at this time. But back to the original dream da cuh and matt WOULDnt stop fucking harrasing the creatures and it got the the point where i LITERALLY WAS YELLING AT THEM TO LEAVE and i was legit suprised idk if i was suprised after i woke up or during the dream, cuz i was so supprised i could be so like RUDE and COMBATIVE twords da cuh... and it only escalated cuz it literally just got worse and worse and da cuh and matt started destorying the aquarium/like shelter for the seacreature thingies... and i literally was SCREAMING AT THEM TO FUCKING LEAVE and they just wouldnt i remeber da cuh was like "oh shii mah bad" and "u juss bitchin bruh" LMAOAOAOAOAO and so i literally decided to call the police.... LMAOAOAOOAOAOAO i still just cannot Belive i would ever do such a thing even in the dream LMAOAOAOAoa but i remeber i LITERALLY COULD NOT ENTER THE FUCKING NUMBER 911 i would always put it in and then it would be a few digits off and id have to retype and this happened OVER AND OVER FUCKING LIKE 10 TIMES and i was literally freaking out and like about to cry and EVENTUALLY i got it and so they said they would come because i said there were people in my house that wouldnt leave and they were hurting the seacreaturs. And so they said they would come BUT they came lime 1 HOUR LATER and during that time i decided to call da cuh PAPS and then he huh i dont remeber what i said on the call with him but next he showed up and just stood there and then left LMAOQOAOAOAOAOAOA
That concludes section 2/3 section 1/3 isnt remotely related to 2/3 onward and is highly classified dangerious information that da cuh nor any living soul can ever obtain LMAOAOAOAOAOAO hehehejehehehejehehrhehhehejeheh wait oh my god... i literally mustv felt so releaved cuz i remeber in part 2/3 started i was literally like the most peacful i had ever been in my whole fucking life cuz in 1/3 i like ue8eh28dur28d28ifuwuSTOP okeyeyehe... everything was good and calm and all past dangers resolved and everything was just wonderful... and then da cuh came
LmAOAOAOAOAOAOA and then okeyeyeh part 3/3 leaves off when cuh paps just like leaves he just dissapears and then LITERALLY like 10 random dudes with chainsaws come and start dapping up da cuh and they were all in the living room of my super old house 4152 which i remeber for some reason was right next to coast bridge and then the backyard and then the house and so they were all in the living room just doing "gang shizz" with da cuh LMAOAOAOAOAOAO and then the POLICE FINALLY CAME and they were positioned on the side yard where our old landlord had his work shed but i realized when i was telling them the issue and da cuh with his chainsaw gang being in the living room jusf drinking and ganging i had a thought literally IN THE DREAM I like had this feeling something wrong was about to happen like i think i talked too loud to the oppas AND OMG IT WAS ONLY 2 POLICE THE LADY AND THE DUDE from when we almost got shot a few days ago coming home from the beach with da cuh (irl) AND so suddenly there was like 3/4 shots cuz i remeber seeing the bullet holes on the wall and the 2 police GOT SHOT and so i was just there and then suddenly they all FUCKING burst through the wall with THE CHAINSAWS and then i think thats the end of the dream..... cuz thats all i remeber...

2023.03.22 00:31 Kolbenfresserle I decided to finally save up for cosmetic surgery. Can't tell anyone, because they'd think I'm vain, when in reality...the truth is so much worse.

Since I was a kid, I had issues with sugar. I have memories of pimples since I was a Kindergartenkid. The shit got worse as a teen. But in comparision to other teen-girls, I never learned hygiene. My abusive mother would throw expensive creams at me, and all in all made it seem like I was attacking HER for how I looked, so in my depression & learned helplessness, I started to care even less about it.
Now my entire face is filled with acne scars. Though they are not as horrible like other scars, they fuck up my life consistently. Be it makeup, or otherwise. However, the biggest reason I am saving up is...because of homicidal/suicidal thoughts they're giving me.
I sound nuts. I know. But these little scars created a personal "Buffalo Bill" complex in me. Like...you have no idea how this shit wore me down over the years. It was not just these comments of "Hey Kolben, you like warts?", or "Jesus, lay off the cookies". No matter where I went, people would remind me of my uneven skin. My mother would point out girls with smooth faces ("Her mother must be proud") and after a while, I started staring at them automatically on my own. I started getting intrusive thoughts when I saw my face in the mirror. It's weird to explain how I feel. There is just this...desire, of wanting to cut my face off. Like, I'd be having dreams about me just pulling my face off like a facial mask and putting someone else's face on. I think I even tried "shaving" my skin with a knife, or razor, but it ended up hurting too much.
I always thought makeup would do the trick. I've seen burn victims getting expert makeup and look decently normal -so why can't I? But in the end, all in all I ended up was finding tutorials in which the girls would always need to use products just to prep the skin. Like...8 different highly specific creams JUST to reduce redness. Little bottles each $45. I lauged when I saw the first vid, but after 4 I was crying.
Surgery has been on my mind for years. However, I scoffed it off for the same reasons anyone looks down at plastic surgery. I didn't want to look "vain". I saw all those easy cases of botching and women who were praised as "cool" for owning up to their imperfections.
But...I'm done.
This shit is nothing a "Aw, you look perfect just as you are <3" could fix. It's not that I just want to feel attractive for guys, or society or...whatever. I also know that I will never be able to have baby-smooth skin. I will continue to have breakouts. But again: That's not the point.
I need to feel like I have a start-over. I want the feeling of my skin burning away. Like my skin is somewhat "reborn". I can't get myself to even care for any skin-care (not even washing my face regularly), because I just feel everything is already destroyed.
So yeah. Sorry. Had to get this off my heart in a trusted space.

2023.03.22 00:06 catskraftsandcoffee Panniculectomy coverage in AZ?

So long story short I had my RNY a few years back and, I've lost about 180 pounds. My pannus is bad and the rashes just won't stop. My excellent doctor put in my referral to plastics for a panniculectomy, but the referral department called yesterday and said all in network doctors either no longer perform the surgery, or are self pay only. They put it on me to find someone who takes United Healthcare AHCCCs and they will send them over the referral and pre authorization. I've been calling all day all over AZ and have come up empty handed. I'm so upset, I've worked so hard and I can not imagine growing old with this skin and trying to deal with rashes the rest of my life. If anyone has any advice or gotten theirs covered in AZ with AHCCCS, I would appreciate any information you can provide! Thank you in advance!

2023.03.21 23:56 catskraftsandcoffee Panniculectomy in AZ Help!

Cross posted to try and find the help I need ❤️So long story short, I've lost like 180 pounds. My pannus (lower belly skin apron) is bad and the rashes just won't stop. My excellent doctor put in my referral to plastics for a panniculectomy, but the referral department called yesterday and said all in network doctors either no longer perform the surgery, or are self pay only and for me to hunt down on my own someone who will do the surgery and accept United Healthcare AHCCCS. I do not have thousands of dollars lying around to do self pay, and I refuse to live with this the rest of my life. If anyone has gone through this and has resources or knows who to reach out to, please let me know as it will be so appreciated!

2023.03.21 23:02 ohjasminee Why are the triplets?

I was so excited for the triplets. A first for the show, they have their own weird language thing, hot girls that game and actually make a living on it…but my god, this extreme failure in production.
1) They have a home they pay for via Twitch. Everybody says they’re unemployed. But they have income. Cycle continues, but only for one episode. Also we’re not going to talk about their plastic surgeries or that journey bc why give them any depth outside of “Responsible and Beavus and Butthead.”
2) We’re opening a vegan Italian restaurant in Staten Island because the whole family is vegan and….eating chicken wings at the restaurant. Are we actually vegan or do we just enjoy vegan food and want to bring it into our community? We’ll never know! Mom complains she wants to open a family restaurant but has no plans, just complains. Next they should open an outdoor sauna in Arizona.
3) Segments entirely of the family just saying how useless they are. Editing or not, it does not seem like these people even remotely like their family members.
4) Why didn’t we focus on their dad, who might be the only relative that wants to be around them? Why did they move out at such a young age to live with grandma, and how did that impact their relationship with their mom? Why didn’t their storyline be something attainable, like relaunching their brand and not “Let’s cook for 40 people or otherwise we will bring unbearable shame to the family.”
Such a waste 😪I know nothing about them as people, just that their family who helped raised them into the people they are also find them insufferable but will take zero responsibility for it, and the one sister is the “responsible one.”
