2023.06.02 00:10 Snakesballz Any advice on what might be psychogenic pain?

Im havin a rough time and I wonder if anyone has experience w something similar. 3 weeks ago I tore my labrum, and only found out today after my mri came back. The tear is minor and the radiologist/my pcp expect it to fully recover with conservative treatment.
The thing is, it never even hurt besides at the time of injury. In fact, the only reason I went to get an mri done was because the shoulder in question was clicking a bit and swelling occassionally, the latter worrying my pcp. However, when my pcp read my results to me, I had a damn near panic attack. I couldnt stop thinking about it for hours, imagining my labrum torn like a piece of paper or something equally silly.
I thought "how come I never even FELT pain there before? Especially even yesterday, doing pullups and using a punching bag?" As if on cue, 20 minutes after that thought, I had this sensation as if someone quickly sliced through the back of my shoulder EXACTLY where my doctor said the tear was. I went bone white, and convinced myself yesterdays gym session somehow retore it completely half a day later spontaneously, in half a second.
Once i came home, I kept having similar smaller awful pains, like someone digging through shards of glass in my shoulder. I couldnt stop thinking about it to the point ive kinda semiconsciously completely immobilized my arm.
5 hours later, the pain is gone, and Im somewhat convinced it was psychogenic. It felt SO REAL, hurt so extremely, and behaved 'realistically'. But it doesnt make sense that I never felt it before, and it doesnt make sense to spontaneously reinjure it from nothing, only to go back to 0 pain now. I have a history of overthinking injury/hypochondria, and recently a fucked up head because of 3 back to back injuries I sustained, one of which i legitimately reinjured.
I dont really have a specific question tbh lol, just wanted to share with someone who wouldnt call me crazy for thinking its psychogenic or call me a reckless dumbass for going to the gym beforehand, even though i had been going for the last 3 weeks at the same capacity with no issue.

2023.06.02 00:10 redheadredemption78 I had a big win, and I really needed it.

I’ve been working in the OR for about 10 months now. I’ve been trying very hard to establish my place in this department, but it’s really easy to feel like I’m just dropping the ball all the time, especially with hardass surgeons.
Well, there’s one surgeon who is extremely particular and tense. I’ve always felt awkward in his room like I’m in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well, I caught a mistake of his a few weeks ago. He hadn’t prepped the leg (he insists on doing his own prepping), and I noticed this as he was draping. I called him out, and we had to scramble to fix the mistake. It felt so damn good.
Today, I found out he mentioned me by name in a meeting with surgeons and managers to say how I was really stepping up and doing a good job. I wasn’t expecting him to do that for me. I nearly cried.

2023.06.02 00:10 Skeecer Three more weeks...

It's crazy how my brain can go wild over the stupidest things sometimes:
I know that every time I see my LO for more than briefly in passing, I'm going to have a bad few hours/days. So today I purposely skipped the one class I have with her every week. Unfortunately, my plan didn't work out at all. We had a sports game tournament tonight and my LO participated as well. Officially I was afraid she might be there too, secretly I hoped so. It turned out that her team even had to compete against mine. Well, during the game, after a point, my LO accidentally threw the ball directly to me instead of to the person who had the serve. For that, she had to miss not just a little, but quite a bit. And that was not just once, but even twice, and it didn't happen to anyone else. And now, after being rejected by her a month ago, my limerent brain is going wild again, as if it wasn't just a mishap 🤡🤡🤡.
I somehow needed to get this off my chest, so thanks for reading.
Three more weeks and the semester will be over and I'll probably never see her again. I guess I should be looking forward to that. To all of you who are doing NC right now: Hang in there, better times will come again.

2023.06.02 00:10 Givemeallyourtacos How do you deal with derogatory comments?

I've noticed that when I meet people I haven't seen in a long time, I make an effort to boost their spirits and make them feel good. I avoid talking about things that might upset them and instead focus on using my conversations and mannerisms to empower them. I don't usually talk much about myself and my success because I don't want to overshadow their achievements. Honestly, it doesn't bother me at all. I only share stuff if it's relevant to the conversation or if someone directly asks me about it.
However, there are instances when I come across people I haven't seen in months or even years, and despite their questions about me, they make condescending or derogatory remarks instead of being positive in response. It always catches me off guard, and when I humbly address their behavior by having them understand my perspective, they either become offended or ignorant, acting as if they haven't said anything wrong and claiming it was just a joke. The "joke" thing I get often as a response, or "I don't know" once I've really analyzed the conversation and asked why they said that, so I can get a better understanding of where they're coming from.
So, my question is, how can I assert myself in a polite manner that doesn't allow them to turn it around and make me appear oversensitive or lacking a sense of humor? Particularly when their intention is to hurt or belittle me.
Furthermore, why do people behave this way towards others? What is the point of taking a jab at someone you haven't seen in a while? How does it benefit you or the other person by making a rather dull or negative "joke". Not harsh, but in a manner where it belittles you to them.

2023.06.02 00:10 Dieguete_Yo LFM People: Say Hello to your new Latifi

And it'll be me! As I just got my license for LFM!
I'm making this post summarizing my learning and giving some useful tips that helped me get here. This was my first sim and the first time I got serious on it:

1.- Forget of learning all the tracks: Get some variety of tracks and use a while to go around them, don't worry about the times, just learn the track, go fast and learn to go on the limit. One trick I also used to myself was to put the track conditions to "fast", as that gave me some leverage for the time.
2.- Give it time! And be patient, you cannot learn in a couple of days, and if you see somebody saying "it took me 10 hours to get the license", they are experienced simracers. You'll need easily 10 hours to learn a single track, without having a competent race pace. Just forget about that, you'll get there.
3.- Don't put the AI too aggresive: Practicing against the AI is the best to learn to be predictable, drive safe and get yourself used to trac conditions during a race. If you put too high aggresive AI, they will dive bomb like crazy and you're not really learning. Also, don't make short races, the key for this is consistency, and if you are able to make 30-45 minute races without issues, you're there.
Once you got this, practice a bit the license server, any other track will just need a few hours practice and a touch on your setup. With just this and practice I got through.
I wish you luck guys! Hope to see you all on the track soon!

2023.06.02 00:10 TreasureHunter112 Uncharted PS5 lagging

Hello everyone, I hope you can help me with this weird problem I have with Uncharted: The Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5. It's really weird and this will be a long post so bear with me.
Anyway, I have a PS5 for two years now and I never had a single issue with it. Recently, I bought Seagate Firecuda 530 2TB SSD and inserted it in expansion slot in my PS5. I just moved one game on it and I continued to use internal PS5 SSD for playing games.
At the time, I was playing God of War: Ragnarok and everything worked just like it did before I put SSD in PS5. Few days ago, I noticed that PS5 struggles to read disc. I turn on the console, put the disc in and PS5 struggles to read it. It takes a bit longer than it did before. Everything works normally but when you put the disc in you can hear the mechanism spinning and then stopping and then spinning again when the disc is read. But this is just a minor problem and it really doesn't bother me all that much.
However, bigger problem is with Uncharted The Legacy of Thieves Collection on PS5. I played the game in June last year and it worked perfectly. I didn't play it since then and I downloaded the patch they released in September 2022 but I didn't play the game since June. Today, I booted up the game and I noticed that the game has all these weired stutters/lags. They happen frequently but they are really noticable when you enter a new room on when a cutscene switches to gameplay. Cutscenes are 90% of the time smooth but they too get some stutter. Like Ragnarok, I played this game off PS5's internal drive. Ragnarok worked fine but this has all these stutters which didn't happen at all last year. I moved this game to SSD I bought and sutters are still present. Also, I noticed that PS5 isn't checking for disc when playing Uncharted every hour or so, but everything (except the stuttering) works normaly. I play in Performance mode on an old 1080p TV.
Does anyone know what causes this stutters? I played Ragnarok two days ago and it played great as always but Uncharted is stuttering whether I play it off PS5's internal of new SSD I bought. Can anyone please help me?

2023.06.02 00:09 Hannah-Banana-1 Is my(21f) bf(26m) violating my consent when I "let him" have sex with me?

So a little background: I 21f have been dating my bf 26m for about a year now, and I've been living with him for 4 months. We have a pretty active and fun sex life, and I would say we both have a pretty high sex drive (4-5 days a week and sometimes multiple times a day. However, his sex drive is still higher then mine. Usually it's when I'm tired from work or school, or just genreally not in the mood. Those times I "let him" have sex with me. Usually what happens is that he goes down on me for a while, then has fairly gentle sex with me till he cums, then he cuddles me till we move on with our night. It's pretty regularly enough to make me cum, and sometime it's even turns me on enough that I start participating. The thing is that my friend group says that he's taking advantage of me and that I'm not actually consenting, but I don't see a problem with it. I kind of fingure that it's just part of being in a relationship with a mismatched drive. He doesn't force me, and all I do is lay there ususally, and it still feels good even when I don't cum. What do you ladies think?

2023.06.02 00:09 BigRecommendation720 Need help with backpedaling in my form

You could hold a gun to my head and tell me not to face backwards in the last step of my run up and I still wouldn’t be able to fix it. I do the exact thing Josh from Overthrow talks about where my second step in the x-step (the one where my back leg crosses behind my front one) swings my body around so when I take my last step to plant, the disc is directly behind me. I’ve tried to do the whole “up up down up” thing he says for hip angle and I just can’t get it, I’m sure that’s the best way but I’m hoping there’s maybe another way to think about it. Anyone else had this trouble, and what did you do to fix it? Anyone have any luck with specific swing thoughts to keep yourself from doing it?

2023.06.02 00:09 don17sch Where to put the filament spool on a Ender 3 V2 with a Sprite Pro Direct Drive Upgrade

I upgraded to a sprite pro direct drive and I am trying to figure out how to place the filament. I had it on the middle of the top bar but it kept stressing and breaking which resulted in clogs inside the extruder.

Should I place it on the side? and if so which direction should I route the filament? From the end of the top bar or on the inside edge of the spool holder?

2023.06.02 00:09 orangerosy The whole Rory liking Jess plot line is waaaay too drawn out

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a GG fan for life and it’s my comfort show, but I need to vent about something.
I’m in my millionth rewatch, on season 2, and I UNDERSTAND Rory is inexperienced and innocent when it comes to dating, but it feels like it takes her SOOO long to come to terms with her feelings for Jess. I don’t know if it’s bad writing or what, but until she finally admits it, it doesn’t seem like she’s in denial, it seems like she’s just acting clueless about it the whole time. All the while, she’s being a jerk to Dean, which she later admits to, but I don’t know, it drives me crazy the more and more I rewatch this season. I do love the dance marathon episode. Again, I understand it taking her some time, but wish it all came about a bit sooner 😅
Even without a shorter timeline, I wish somewhere along the way Rory confides in Lane about potentially liking Jess, but they talk it out and decide she should stay with ol’ reliable Dean. Or something to that effect.
Lorelai has the similar problem with admitting her feelings for Luke, but it plays out more in the background across several seasons, so it feels less annoying.

2023.06.02 00:08 NBAjjchamberlain NBA Finals 2023 - Five Strategies to Watch

This year’s NBA Finals is already historic. The Heat are the first play-in team to claw their way out of a 44-38 record and 8th seed to land themselves in the NBA Finals. The Nuggets have never made a Finals, had the best record in the battle hardened West and the city is absolutely stoked. What are NBA heads saying about the series? What are fans around the world hoping to see? How are coaches going to keep these ballers away from Denver’s number one trending story of the year: Shotgun Willie’s Gentleman’s Club, which infamously siren songed the Grizzlies’ Ja Morant into stacking cash on every inch of the private dance room? Slap a booty and get ready for the last NBA basketball of the year.
Thanks for reading JJ’s Substack! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.
1 - How to stop Nikola Jokic?
The two time MVP is having yet another killer season. He’s been, arguably, the best player in the playoffs of all time. He’s averging a triple double on 29.9 points, 13.3 assists, 10.3 rebounds and around 1 block and 1 steal per game. This guy can do it all and has undoubtedly contributed to the Heat coaching staff’s lack of sleep. Luckily the state just decrminalized a fanny pack of plant based drugs that may help.
Everyone knows how much the Heat love running zone defense. Can the zone even stop Jokic? Doubt it but the Heat are going to try. They run a fluid 2-3 zone which can flow directly into a 1-3-1 formation. The Heat need to pack the middle of the floor and push Jokic to the sidelines on the pick and roll using their 1-3-1. If the Heat can keep Jokic out of the middle of the floor that limits his options on the center-point guard pick and roll that he runs to perfection with Jamal Murray. Look for easy rebounds and putbacks on the weak side from Aaron Gordon and Michael Porter Jr.
Can the Nuggets outshoot the zone? Damn right they can. Will they? We’ll see. The Heat run out and defend every single three point attempt. They held the sharp shooting Boston Celtics to 30% from 3, down from 37% during the regular season. However, this series may be won from the three point line if the Nuggets can run and the Heat can get Butler into the lane for kickouts.
2 - Who can guard Jimmy Butler?
Aaron Gordon most likely. We will see if he’s too slow to stay in front of Jimmy. If Butler still has that nagging injury he’s been battling the past two series that will help out AG. There are a couple bodies that the Nuggets can throw at James Effin Buckets. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is an underrated defender with sneaky strength. Reggie Jackson is rusty but used to be able to defend at a high level. Bruce Brown has the heart of fiesty chihuahua but he’s too small. Jamal is too small too. We’ve all seen what Jimmy’s done to smaller guards, he’ll bully his way to the lane and make defenders look stupid with his pump fakes, footwork, interior passing and little chip shots. If Jimmy gets stuffed this series, who will show up for the Heat?
3 - Malone vs Spo
Erik Spoelstra has solidified his standing as one of the greatest coaches of the era, possibly all time. This will be his 6th NBA Finals since taking over the reigns from Pat Riley in 2009. I have no doubt that Spo has some tricks in the bag and having the Godfather on speed dial doesn’t hurt either.
But Malone is no stranger to NBA legacies. His father Brendan was an assistant for the champion Pistons in the late 80’s and then again with the Knicks Finals run in 1999 and the Reggie Miller Pacers in 2000. Michael himself was an assistant during LeBron’s first Finals in 2007. So he does have some experience here in the promised land.
This coaching matchup will come down to, you guessed it, in-game adjustments. Each coach’s ability to change on the fly will be crucial to finding the weak points in each other’s schemes. Every possession will matter in these games. Look for Malone to push the pace with his crew and try to get some quick transition buckets before the Heat can set up their defense. Jokic excels in the rebound-and-go game. In the half court, Malone will try to move Jokic around to different points on the floor and it will be especially interesting when he puts Joker back to the basket in the post. He has the passing, vision, strength, length and creativity to be dangerous that close to the basket.
Spoelstra on the other hand will walk the ball up, play through Butler and try to swing the Nuggets defense from side to side. Expect him to set up Duncan Robinson and Max Strus on the wings where they can be dangerous driving or shooting the three off the Butler-Bam Adebayo pick and roll. Kevin Love can still knock down an open jumper and may have some post move tricks up his sleeve. But he’s so old he can’t even drive a golf cart anymore. Love can be another big body that Spo can put on Jokic to give him different defenders.
4 - Bench Scoring - Who will shine?
The bright lights may burn the bench guys but some will bask in the glory. Kyle Lowry is due for a big game after struggling against the Celtics top tier wing defenders. The Nuggets don’t have the bench defense to hold down all the Heat shooters so we will see a game won by a Heat backup, like we’ve seen in plenty of games so far this playoffs.
The Nuggets bench has issues. Jeff Green is too old. Christian Braun is too young. Reggie Jackson and Thomas Bryant have yet to work their way into the rotation. DeAndre Jordan is a mascot. However, expect some decent minutes from…Vlatko Cancar if the Heat bench is outperforming Green, Brown and Braun. Cancar can guard Love and Robinson. Really this Nuggets bench goes how Bruce Brown goes. If he has a hot game on both ends, the bench looks unstoppable. If he withers like a winter flower then the Heat bench will dominate like they’ve done all year.
5 - The crowd, the altitude, the experience, the refs
Intangibles. The stuff numbers can’t measure. The Nuggets crowd will be loud, fired up and intense. The Heat crowd, not so much. They’ve been spoiled over the years, show up late and leave early. They do wear the white shirts though which looks nice but makes the empty seats even more noticeable.
Do players play worse at altitude? Short answer, yes. Long answer, it depends. The altitude will effect the Heat at the beginning and end of games. The biggest concern is dehydration which means keeping the Heat out of the club and focused on basketball. Heat culture will play a big role here with everyone, top to bottom, 100% ready for each game.
The Heat have much more experience in the Finals than the Nuggets. They have two NBA champions in the rotation in KLove and KLow, three if you count the corpse of Udonis Haslem. They also have a few returning from their 2020 bubble Finals against the Lakers where they lost a heartbreaker to an Anthony Davis fall away three. This grizzled Heat team will be angry and hungry but what else is new? Their Finals experience may end up being the overriding factor in this series, especially among the coaching staffs. The Heat will stay calm and collected even with the intensity through the roof.
Finally, the NBA’s middle management, the refs. Who does the NBA want to win? What will revenue more? This is a coin flip. With the Lakers, Knicks, Celtics and Warriors all on the couch, gone fishin’ or 1-2-3 Cancunin’, the refs will likely call this series as even as they can. A Jokic ring would be the icing on the cake for Eastern European basketball which hasn’t ever had an MVP champion.
So who ya got? The Nuggets in 5 seems like a solid bet at +225 against a hobbled Heat team. But if the Heat push it to six and get back home expect them to finish hard and force a game 7. Heat in 7 is +1000 and it’s tough to bet against them the way they’ve defied all odds.

2023.06.02 00:08 Funkrusher_Plus Asian ladies moving further away and "turning their back" every time they see me and my dog.

I live in a residential building with my dog. Although my dog is very friendly with humans, he is an all-black pitbull mix and his appearance can be considered intimidating or scary to some.
Earlier today as I was walking to the elevator with my dog, a middle-aged (late 40s or 50s) looking Asian woman was already waiting for the elevator, but as soon as she saw us approaching she quietly moved further away from us and in a very blatantly obvious way she turned her back on us and basically stayed in that position even when the elevator arrived. She didn't even turn her head once to see where the elevator was. And when the elevator arrived, even though she was there before us, she didn't take the elevator.
Now I understand if she was scared of my dog she would move further away... But the thing that kind of bothered me was her completely turning her back, as if she saw a ghost or if we were Medusa and even "looking" in our general direction would cause her to die. On the surface it just seemed extremely rude. But I don't want to jump to conclusions, and perhaps this is a cultural thing that they normally do in whatever country she is from. Last year I had an identical experience with another person who lived on my floor (she did the whole "turning her back on me" thing as well). On both occasions, the person was a middle-aged immigrant Asian woman presumably from either China or a SE Asian country. I say this because I too am Asian (American born) and I know for certain they were not Japanese or Korean.
I also want to point out that there are a lot of people who--for whatever reason--are naturally scared of my dog the second they see him and many of them are not Asian. But it is only those two women I described above, who happen to be Asian (Chinese or SE Asian) that did the whole "turning their back" thing. Every white, black, or hispanic person also afraid of my dog will keep their distance, but they don't go full 180 like those two women did.
So basically my question is... Is it a cultural norm in Chinese or some SE Asian country to not only move further away from something you're fearful of, but completely turn your back?

2023.06.02 00:08 Halcyon8705 "Insurance" shenanigans

So after a couple hours trying to find a pharmacy stocking generic concerta (haven't had to do this in a while, but used to the run around every few months) I've been informed by my pharmacist that my insurance no longer carries this medication.
Without any notice to me, after half a decade on a slowly increasing dosage, I have been told that I can no longer take the medication that I need to perform competent-ish.
(So Many Expletives)
Nevermind that it took me over a year to figure out that Concerta (and then the generic, after being railroaded into taking the generic) was the one that worked. I guess I'll try Vyvanse, but I'm pretty sure I've tried that one already and the effect was negligible. Whatever, just my career and sense of self worth.
Worst part of this is how it feels like my brain is being monkeyed around with. I've heard someone compare it to driving without your glasses, and I think that's generally true.
But my vision isn't terrible, just bad enough that I'm not allowed to legally drive without my glasses. So here I am, driver's seat of life, nervously crawling along hoping my booked perceptions about what I can and should be doing aren't being royally screwed by a perception that I can't even understand has gone haywire, and heaven help the people who depend on me as a manager I guess.
I am just so tired of all this, of every fucking bit of this.

The Vexation of 3.7 Spiral Abyss' flawed design
The day is 1st of June, 2023. We log in to our favorite game, Genshin Impact, to do our dailies, spend the day of Resin, some of us do some crazy things like walk from King Deshret's Pyramid to Mondstadt. But, since it's a first day of a month, we get to enjoy our ever so distant monthy content - the reset of the shop, new free wishes, and the reset of Spiral Abyss
To no surprise to anyone, the 3.7 version of Spiral Abyss is one of, if not the most aggravating one since launch despite the obnoxious cycle of last abyss rotations. We came from hating Golden Wolflord to Triple Kenki, from Triple Kenki to the Wenut - Abyss isn't spoiling us to be fair. And we have to deal with those Consecrated Beasts, our most beloved all the time.
Yet this round up is the worst not because the monsters are annoying as hell, not fully at least. 3.7 Spiral Abyss is inherently badly designed

Let's have an overview of the latest Floor 12, and analyze it's infuriating flaws. Sidenote - i am aware of the difficulty increase in Floor 11 as well, yet it's much more generous timers offset that spike for now.

We'll start from the whole 1st Half, since i want to go over half individually
Floor 12-1-1

1st Wave - 1 Pyro Whopperflower, 2 Cryo Whopperflower, followed by 2 Pyro Whopperflowers and 1 Cryo Whopperflower 2nd Wave - 3 Primal Constructs, followed by 3 Primal Constructs
The starting part of the Floor 12 is the probably the second least daunting one of the 6 halfs, but it's lineup still forces a certain playstyle upon you. While the 6 flowers may be annoying with their hopping and underground digging, they do fall quickly, and their inexistant poise makes them easy to stagger and quickly eliminate.
The Doritos however are a diffirent story. If you don't blitz them down, they go poof and enter stealth, unallowing you to comfortably attack them since the auto target system in Genshin will bruteforce you into one of their "beyblades" they leave while vanished. To burst the state prematurely, you ought to trigger a Quicken reaction on them, which will also stun them for a while.
Obviously then, running a Dendro/Electro duo is rather a must, that's alright, Genshin is a gacha, the amount of characters available is there for something, we cannot just blitz through everything with just Raiden National and Kuki Hyperbloom.
The other issue is the matter of the enemy spawn. The half consists of 12 enemies total, 6 for each type. However only 3 of them can be alive at a given time - once 1 goes down, it's immediately replaced with a diffirent one, providing a steady stream of foes. It might be an non-issue if you play someone like Alhaitham/Yae, but if you play something like Nahida, you constantly need to refresh your E, which may vary from a mild inconveniance (Keqing) to a serious displeasure (Cyno)

Floor 12-2-1

1st Wave - Jadeplume Terrorshroom
Chicken. Our dear and beloved Chicken. Will anyone be surprised if i say this is the easiest half of all 6? I mean, it's just one singular boss, a damage sponge who may hit you, but is rather fair to play against, it doesn't zoom from one edge of the arena to the other while chain knocking you up, right?

Floor 12-3-1

1st Wave - Consecrated Horned Crocodile & Consecrated Fanged Beast 2nd Wave - Consecrated Horned Crocodile & Consecrated Fanged Beast
Game's public enemy nr. 1 right now, and it's easy to tell why if you fought them once.
The Beasts have around a million HP each (tankier than Azhdaha), 40% resist to every element, increased to 70% for their own (Hydro for Crocodile, Dendro for Beast), have insane knockback on their attacks, deal gargantous amounts of damage and are surprisingly fast. The Fanged Beast even has an untargetability state to it.
We already had Consecrated Beasts in the Abyss. They actually are with us for nearly the whole 2023 - first ones appeared in the 2nd Chamber of 3.4 Floor 12. Up to this point, each time they were present, they fought in 2 each half. This time is no diffirent, we will face 2 of them at the same time - but this time, twice.
After defeating the 2 beasts, you fight the exact same line-up over again. This really makes the blood boil, since they were already a problem in 2, not to say 4. While this may come off as a hyperbole, shields are mandatory in this half, or at least something that grants resistance to interruption, such as Xingqiu's Rain Swords. You are going to be thrown around like a bag of potatoes otherwise.

Despite it's catastrophic finish, i'd wager to say that the First Half of Floor 12 is fairly designed. You might say right now "THe hell? How 4 Consecrated Beasts be fair desing? DOWNVOTE!" - hear me out. I am as pissed off about their existance as you are, but if you pick a Dendro Character for the Doritos in the 1st half, you will not be regretting that, despite the increased resistance of Chicken and Fanged Beast.
Second Half, however, is diffirent

Floor 12-1-2

1st Wave - 1 Cryo Abyss Mage, 1 Hydro Abyss Mage 2nd Wave - 1 Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, 2 Abyss Heralds: Frost Fall
This lineup is a straight up "f**k u" from Hoyoverse.
The Abyss Mages are not really an issue here - they are alone and they die fast. The Heralds are the problem.
All the issues of this half stem from one thing - their elements. Combination of Hydro and Cryo attacks will result in constant Freezes, while the wide coverage and high range of the Heralds will make it hard to avoid the Freeze. Then, given the design of Heralds, you have to deal with a chunky Hydro and Cryo Shields. This sparks a seed for a big problem of this phase's Second Half - Elemental Restrictions.
You cannot go Freeze Teams in the second half. You cannot go Nilou Bloom team (not that you'd want to, Second Half is nearly exclusively single target). Hyperbloom teams are hindered because of Cryo. Hydro Teams also do not work. That leaves us with Mono Geo, Anemo Carry, Pyro and Electro teams. Since the former elements are inert, and react in a diffirent manner, let's close up on the latter. Electro teams can certainly do this phase, but it's not worth the time, as Electro needs time to chunk both Hydro and Cryo shields, while Pyro will only slightly struggle with Hydro.

Floor 12-2-2

1st Wave - Thunder Manifestation
Remember that bit about Electro being able to do that? Yea, don't bother, there's a Mosquito waiting to ruin all your plans.
The whole boss honestly isn't too bad, however it is more unpleasant compared to the Shroom. It can blink, quickly make or close distance, and flies in the air, which may come as a discomfort for certain melee users. But it's attacks are telegraphed, easy to dodge.
The existance of Thunder Manifestation in the Second Chamber solidifies the Second Half as a Pyro-focused one. And as i said in the 12-1-1 analysis, it's ok. Genshin is a gacha game, it's made to test multiple diffirent strategies. There's nothing wrong with making a Pyro-centric half...

Floor 12-3-2

1st Wave - Iniquitous Baptist - (forget the title)
...unless it then requires other elements.
Iniquitous Baptist is a new Abyss Boss released in Version 3.6. The boss itself is actually one of the squishiests ones in the game, but it has a gimmick. Since it's an Abyss creature, it has a benefit of Elemental Shields, which are used in the battle. Shortly after the he spawns, Baptists creates 3 crystals around himself and channels, gaining approx. 270% damage reduction and a shield. To destroy the shield, you need to destroy the crystals - which require attacks from various, diffirent elements. After that shield dissapears, the Boss will cover himself in another elemental shield, which needs to be destroyed in a more traditional way.
Normally, it wouldn't be a problem. I think that it's a cool boss, and it's existance in Abyss doesn't frighten me. However, Floor 12's Second Half already excluded Hydro, Cryo and Electro from optimal usage by the way of Heralds and Thunder Manifestation. This creates a situation in which you need to pray that the Baptist never covers himself in a Pyro shield nor will he spawn a Pyro crystal which will be impossible to destroy. Aeonblight Drake did the similiar thing with forcing players to use bow characters against him, but following ASIMON did not punish you for having a Collei or Yelan the way that Baptist punishes you for going mono-Yoimiya for example.
Now, you can say "U can use supports to kill the shield". Sure, but that takes time. We are talking about Abyss 12, we have 3 minutes to complete BOTH halfs in order to get 3 stars. Some people want to 36 star the abyss for those extra primos, some for the personal achievement. The last chamber already has beasts, which can take up even 2 minutes in optimal scenarios, leaving 1 minute for a boss which sometimes will be impossible to tear down. This isn't even a numbers thing - You can whale 10k $ on Yoimiya's banner right now to get her C6 and a R5 Thundering Pulse to top that yet you still won't be able to damage the Baptist if he gets a Pyro shield. The design of this Abyss just doesn't make sense in any way, which sparks frustration.

I will allow myself to compare the new Abyss to the one from 2.5, when the rise of difficulty in Abyss started to become noticable

Now how is this one fairly designed? It has Wolflord!
Look, this Abyss cycle is practically neutral Elementally. The only place where usage of a certain element is either encouraged or prohibited is in 12-2-2 against the Wolflord. Indeed, that boss is a pain in the butt, taking a lot of time, and i agree that it's presence is not satisfactory, but it does not require us to use an element previous chamber disincentivized.

To summarise, the irritation that the new Abyss generates comes from it's bad design. First half shows us the issue of bloated health bars and overpowered mobs, while second half has inconsistant elemental requirements for it's enemies.
