Just found out quidditch TLSQs are not retriggered, and Im little sad bc I just received the Comet TLSQ in the same day of Full Marks, and prioritized FM thinking I would be able to do the Comet one at another time. How do I know which TLSQs are retriggered and which don't? Also, when retriggered, how long it takes to retrigger them?

2023.06.07 11:59 Hiro-Kawa GG.Ace appreciation post

In this recent video ( Saksa listed Ace as one of the underrated players. Everyone already knows how good he is so he might not be underrated, but this made me rethink the one amazing play he made a while back.
I've been a long-time Secret fan (ex-Navi fan, changed when Puppey left) and have seen many players join and leave the roster. When Ace joined, I considered him an above-average player who could pull out a surprise meepo pick. He never had a bad game and was always solid but never thought he was the best carry player out there.
But the recent performances of GG have changed the minds of many including myself. This one play by him made me think he is one of the smartest players. In this game vs Liquid (match id: 7059257743), he pretended that he did not have high-ground vision when killing Insania, and used his E to provide *fake vision to kill him (the play I believe 99.99% of players would have kept hitting, but Ace is so damn good that he pretended not to have vision, so he does not give away the ward. This resulted in his hill ward not getting dewarded and provided valuable vision for the whole duration.
He almost always wins lanes and top 3 net worth in most games. He can play all offlane heroes from micro to non-micro (never seen him play bat, but mostly because Quinn is so good on it) and very good on all. He itemizes perfectly and I think he massively improved since the secret days. As Gorgc says, he never chokes and is always a clutch player.
TLDR: GG.Ace is good at dota.

2023.06.07 11:58 suqnfuq Wire withdrawal issues

I’ve had my kraken account active for a few years. However, I’ve never really been active on it.
Recently I had to transfer some funds and remembered kraken had the ACH withdrawals so I went ahead and had the btc sent to my kraken account.
After having sold the BTC I realized wiring was the only option provided at this time.
No problem, I called in to make sure I was doing things properly and was guided the whole time through while being assured it shouldn’t take more than 1 business day. I clarified if that meant from the time the bank opened up until it closed, and the rep said that was correct.
The rep checked the routing number I provided, said it was valid, so I proceeded. In between this first call and the 28 hour call I will be mentioning I spoke to two other reps and my bank. The reps said my money should come back quickly if something was wrong. My bank said the routing number was not suitable. The reps I spoke to after my bank said I should be fine.
The next call made 1 business day 24 hours. Called back 28 hours later and was told the case was being escalated being the wire is still being “sent” or “processed” after 24 hours. I received the email confirmation that the case was being escalated.
After browsing this Reddit, I am a bit concerned now as to how long it is going to take to get my funds.
I’m not in the best financial position as life comes at you fast and have been waiting for this money to come in to my account desperately.
I would like to know when is the best time for me to call to speak to someone who could assist me further. It seems I’ve been calling outside of business hours and even just got the same representative that guided me through the wire not too long ago.
It seems like these 24 hour reps are limited as to what they can do.
Please respond to this when you can. I’m not in a good position and really need and have been counting on this money having been in my account already.

2023.06.07 11:58 honeyredscreams My cauda equina story

Mostly just posting this for therapy, but also thought people might be interested to hear the variation in CES symptoms. Mine is a little different from most of the others I have read in this sub. This is my (relatively) pain-free cauda equina tale!
I had sciatic nerve leg pain for 4 months prior to getting CES. It was mild and I ignored it for six weeks before going to see a physio. They assigned stretches and did massage but things didn’t really improve. It never stopped me from doing anything, just made things more annoying/less comfortable.
In early January I woke up in the morning and sneezed. I felt bolts of pain shoot down both my legs, and struggled to get up. I had three days of 5/10 pain in my lower back when I moved around, but icing and an electric blanket helped and I went in to work on the fourth day.
The following day I sneezed again, and went right back to square one. 5/10 pain, hard to get up, couldn’t sit, pain all in the lower back and tailbone.
On advice from Healthline I went to see the after hours doctor who tested my muscle strength, gave me muscle relaxants and codeine and told me that if the pain persisted for more than six weeks I might want to get my discs checked out.
Went home, did more ice and heat and two days later was well enough to walk to to the supermarket and carry my groceries back.
That evening a hot, burning, bruised pain started in the backs of my thighs, a consistent pain where the other had always been movement related. When I went to bed I had to take a codeine to sleep, and I woke up as soon as it wore off (about 2.5 hours later).
At around 5.30am I noticed numbness in my mons pubis. The sensation was just gone. No tingling, not coming and going, absolutely nothing.
I immediately knew I was in trouble, because every single medical professional I had seen about my leg/back pain over the past four months had stressed to me, if you ever have numbness, tingling, incontinence, call the ambulance right away. No one had ever said cauda equina syndrome, but they were all so consistent and emphatic and clear. And that really helped, because I was so reluctant to call for help. Being scared, not wanting it to be serious, not wanting to take up resources if it wasn’t serious.
Once I ended up at the hospital I had a pretty speedy journey. Saw a doctor within an hour at ER, they pretty quickly checked if I could pee (no), did some more checking (iykyk), and then it was MRI time. From arrival at ER to going into surgery it was about 7 hours. I was so lucky and am so grateful.
I’m 5 months out from surgery now, and doing okay. Some numbness in my right heel, thigh, both buttocks and slightly beyond. I have a little limp. My tailbone hurts when I sit for too long or in a hard chair. I was horribly constipated for weeks, but have pretty much found equilibrium now. I’ve never really had any pain post surgery (other than my tailbone).
This has been my first experience in the healthcare system and it has been an eye opener. The emergency care was fantastic, the follow up care has been non-existent. It was so scary to have an uncertain recovery, for everything to be so hard, to need so much help.
The best advice I got was to keep a diary of your progress. It helped me see the improvements that I couldn’t feel whilst in the middle of it all. Reading that a month ago it took me 20 minutes to limp to work, whereas now I’m cruising along in 10 helps me see and appreciate that things are still getting better.
Congratulations to anyone who got this far, thank you to others who shared their stories, and if you’re newly diagnosed please have hope! It is so rough in the beginning, and you just need to be patient and see how your recovery goes.

2023.06.07 11:58 petermorales2 30 [M4F] - A new leaf

TL:DR - 30 year old lawyeprofessor who’s been single af for quite a while is looking for a decent date, preferences are posted down there. ☺️
So, I don’t really know how to start this post because I’ve been browsing Reddit before just for gaming subreddits and it was not until a friend told me about the “dating” aspect that my curiosity was piqued and started lurking here.
While there are ALOT of hookup posts, I think there are people here that are still looking for something decent and interesting.
I’m a 30 year old freshly minted Law practitioner and currently a University professor. I’ve been single for quite some time because I decided to focus on my studies and my work. I’ve had a long term relationship which ended mid-Law School. Since then, I did date occasionally but nothing really materialized as I was laser focused in my studies.
Now, having achieved the pinnacle of what I have worked and dreamed for, I still somehow feel not as satisfied as I should be in life. No doubt I’m happy, proud, and grateful for everything but it still feels like something’s missing.
So while having dinner with some of my co-professors just last night, I somehow found myself ok the hot seat. And when asked about my dating life, that’s when I realized I neglected that part of my life.
So here I am, trying my luck here. Not expecting but definitely open to dating. But now I also know what I want. I hope you do, too.
I’m supposed to give out preferences but before I do, let me give a few details about myself:
So what am I looking for?
There you have it, I might not get a lot of replies kasi mahaba na to haha but anyway, thanks if you read up to this part. ☺️ DM ka nalang and hope we vibe!

2023.06.07 11:57 stewiemfgriffin rant: melissa is annoying and she didn’t need to come onto the show at all imho

(im not on either team as this point i think it’s redundant to pick a side) but i just really hate the fact that melissa and joe decided to come onto the show at all. they easily could have been like side characters this entire time. their relationship with tre was bad but they didnt care the show meant more to them and that set the tone for everything that happened subsequently. i don’t care for them having their own spot and regardless of what they had to do to get on or whether they even needed to do anything at all, they still shouldn’t have done it. i will never be able to like them because of that.
their driving factor was money, success, fame, they had shitty relationship with tre before they got on they certainly will while they’re on. it comes down to the gorgas wanting a chance in the spotlight to have melissa outshine tre but it just didn’t work out for them. sure melissa might be the star in a parallel universe but certainly not this one. the family being destroyed was a byproduct of their decision to come on with so much more fuel added to the fire over the years considering how terribly both sides deal with their issues with one another.
melissa is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. so as long as she keeps spinning the narrative to paint herself as the sweet and innocent one she’ll always be just meh-lissa. like do literally anything else let’s try to be interesting on our own (re: failed music career, “i want another baby”) like yeah girl you didn’t commit mortgage fraud but you’re still boring. bitter. blah. still without a unique storyline or any storyline outside of tre and joe at all. like i feel nothing from melissa she’s never expressed anything or exemplified anything remotely impactful or meaningful to me. the one thing i will always give teresa credit for despite her many flaws and toxic traits is her relationship with her daughters and she’s raised them well. another thing is the love she for her parents and it goes without saying teresa always took good care of nonno (RIP❤️) also throughout everything with joe giudice, she’s built a healthy coparenting relationship with him and respects him as the girls’ father and that takes work.
can you imagine how much better the show would have been if we took all the airtime the gorgas had and replaced that with airtime of teresa and her daughters doing literally anything and like juicy joe in the kitchen or some shit. melissa only gets props from fans when she puts teresa in her place but like what else is there to give her praise over that isnt her shady bs boutique. like the gorgas do nothing but bring out the worst in teresa which prompts teresa to bring out the worst in them too. literally oil and water the show would have been way better without them

2023.06.07 11:57 527pm Excessively sweating during night while on period

(I take the pill and I know that I technically do not have a natural period but I still call it like that)
Since 2-3 months I wake up every night, drenched in sweat during my period. It doesn’t matter what type of clothes I wear or how cold it is in my room. It also happens when I sleep over at my partners' house. I honestly don’t even know if it’s sweat bc I don’t smell in the morning but I still feel disgusting bc everything is so sticky. The funny thing is also when I take a nap I don’t sweat, it’s just during the night.
Does someone experience the same? I just had an appointment with my OBGYN and physician as well and my blood tests look normal.

2023.06.07 11:57 Jaded_Beginning_1222 My husband has been paying for sec for over a decade

Hello, everyone. This is my first Reddit post, please excuse any mistakes. I’m also not great with the acronyms…
Title is self explanatory. We have been living together since 2009, married in 2022, and he first had an EA (which became a PA!) in 2010. We had a one month ‘break’ then he started paying for sex around 2012 (I think he has always done this, but I can only find proof going back to 2012)
I found out on April 1st 2023. He doesn’t know that I know, but I have over 300 screenshots of him looking for sex online and offline.
I don’t know for sure why I’m posting here, I just feel so alone in this situation and perhaps need some advice and to vent.
We used to have sex fairly regularly, I am 37 yo F HL and always thought he was LL but I guess I was wrong, he did want sex (perverse that is!) just not with me.
He said to me once that he didn’t want to have sex more often for fear of getting bored of me! We haven’t had sex in nearly 8/9 years (at least, I haven’t!)
I am booked in for STI tests already. I know I should get a divorce and leave him, I’m just scared of his reaction and that I will be alone. Not that I really want to be anything besides alone right now.
This all came out at the same time I found out I had been abused as a child…
I’ve been reading posts on here and it does help a little, I though maybe posting may help even more. I will keep doing it
The biggest thing for me right now is to tell him that I know (he is 43yo M, by the way- online he pretends to be 35-38!)
I’ve written a letter (which is way too long to put on here, I tried) but haven’t had the strength to read it to him.
He couldn’t talk to me about what he wanted in bed but he could easily talk to strangers!
I just need to talk to him and I don’t know how…

2023.06.07 11:57 Alliejam1 ACIM WORKBOOK LESSON 158

LESSON 158. Today I learn to give as I receive.
What has been given you? The knowledge that you are a mind, in Mind and purely mind, sinless forever, wholly unafraid, because you were created out of love. Nor have you left your Source, remaining as you were created. This was given you as knowledge which you cannot lose. It was given as well to every living thing, for by that knowledge only does it live. You have received all this. No one who walks the world but has received it. It is not this knowledge which you give, for that is what creation gave. All this cannot be learned. What, then, are you to learn to give today? Our lesson yesterday evoked a theme found early in the text. Experience cannot be shared directly, in the way that vision can. The revelation that the Father and the Son are one will come in time to every mind. Yet is that time determined by the mind itself, not taught.
The time is set already. It appears to be quite arbitrary. Yet there is no step along the road that anyone takes but by chance. It has already been taken by him, although he has not yet embarked on it. For time but seems to go in one direction. We but undertake a journey that is over. Yet it seems to have a future still unknown to us.
Time is a trick, a sleight of hand, a vast illusion in which figures come and go as if by magic. Yet there is a plan behind appearances that does not change. The script is written. When experience will come to end your doubting has been set. For we but see the journey from the point at which it ended, looking back on it, imagining we make it once again; reviewing mentally what has gone by.
A teacher does not give experience, because he did not learn it. It revealed itself to him at its appointed time. But vision is his gift. This he can give directly, for Christ’s knowledge is not lost, because He has a vision He can give to anyone who asks. The Father’s Will and His are joined in knowledge. Yet there is a vision which the Holy Spirit sees because the Mind of Christ beholds it too.
Here is the joining of the world of doubt and shadows made with the intangible. Here is a quiet place within the world made holy by forgiveness and by love. Here are all contradictions reconciled, for here the journey ends. Experience–unlearned, untaught, unseen–is merely there. This is beyond our goal, for it transcends what needs to be accomplished. Our concern is with Christ’s vision. This we can attain.
Christ’s vision has one law. It does not look upon a body, and mistake it for the Son whom God created. It beholds a light beyond the body; an idea beyond what can be touched, a purity undimmed by errors, pitiful mistakes, and fearful thoughts of guilt from dreams of sin. It sees no separation. And it looks on everyone, on every circumstance, all happenings and all events, without the slightest fading of the light it sees.
This can be taught; and must be taught by all who would achieve it. It requires but the recognition that the world can not give anything that faintly can compare with this in value; nor set up a goal that does not merely disappear when this has been perceived. And this you give today: See no one as a body. Greet him as the Son of God he is, acknowledging that he is one with you in holiness.
Thus are his sins forgiven him, for Christ has vision that has power to overlook them all. In His forgiveness are they gone. Unseen by One they merely disappear, because a vision of the holiness that lies beyond them comes to take their place. It matters not what form they took, nor how enormous they appeared to be, nor who seemed to be hurt by them. They are no more. And all effects they seemed to have are gone with them, undone and never to be done.
Thus do you learn to give as you receive. And thus Christ’s vision looks on you as well. This lesson is not difficult to learn, if you remember in your brother you but see yourself. If he be lost in sin, so must you be; if you see light in him, your sins have been forgiven by yourself. Each brother whom you meet today provides another chance to let Christ’s vision shine on you, and offer you the peace of God.
It matters not when revelation comes, for that is not of time. Yet time has still one gift to give, in which true knowledge is reflected in a way so accurate its image shares its unseen holiness; its likeness shines with its immortal love. We practice seeing with the eyes of Christ today. And by the holy gifts we give, Christ’s vision looks upon ourselves as well.

2023.06.07 11:56 Crafty_Thought I am being harrassed by my co-worker. Help needed!

TW: Mention of sexual assault and depression
Hi, I am a 25F living in India and working at a wedding planning company.
So I have this senior colleague who used to work with us as a freelancer and joined as an employee recently a week back.
In December 2022, while at a wedding my collegue (let's call him D) started behaving a little too friendly and touchy touchy. I got a little scared and I didn't know what do so decided to just ignore it for the moment. The night we were leaving for home he kissed me, I initially tried to push him but then just let him continue. This thing went between us for a 2 months or so. Where we would just make out and max 2nd base since I have a traumatic past I didn't want to indulge in any sexual activity further than that as I was not comfortable. I didn't have any feelings/crush on him, i just let it continue for these few months also as I liked the attention I was recieving from him, which now I know was wrong, since it gave him the idea that I enjoyed whatever we had.
When I said no to sex the first time, he was disappointed and asked why, to which I explained to him in detail my past and the reason why can't indulge. He said he understood, however over the two months he would try and persude me to sleep with and each time that I said no would make him upset. Almost like a child throwing a tantrum when he didn't recieve what he wanted. It felt like each "no" was a attack on his ego.
In the month of March, D was away on a work trip for half a month. Just the night before he left,he came over to my place but didn't enter the house since he is sacred of animals (I have a cat), so we were chilling outside in the corridor of my building. This is what we have always done when he used to come over. He again tried to persuade me to have sex. By this point I was done with our extra curricular activities and I just wanted to end it. Me being a people pleaser I didn't want him to be upset or angry with me if I told him directly that it's over, so I told him that I am seeing a psychologist who is helping me and has suggested to heal myself before getting involved in anything.
To this he decided he to make up a story based on my trauma to persuade me to sleep with him. I am a sexual assault survivor, he said that sometime back...he had met a girl in a club and had a one night stand. The girl apparently started crying right after they did the deed. The girl said to D that he is the first guy she slept with in a long time as she was sexually assaulted and has been afraid of sex, and then proceeded to thank him for helping her get over her fear. To me this sounded like a bullshit story as he could have told me this multiple times in the past when we spoke about my situation. How are you suddenly telling me this story, as your leaving for good number of days? And if you could help someone else with situation similar to mine you could have told me this to make me feel better or something idk. However I didn't react to this much as it was almost 4am and I had work that morning, so slowly and calmly and nicely I told him to go home. From that moment I knew I didn't want to be around a person like him who could make up such a story just to have sex.
The whole time he was away I didn't respond to his calls or messages, completely ignoring his existence. At that time I was going through a depressive episode so I was maintaining distance from almost everyone to get my head straight. Once he returned, I kept ignoring him, I had no worry since he was a freelance and to my knowledge he won't be coming to office, I'll be just seeing him during events. ignorance is bliss. When I wouldn't respond he came to my place one night after midnight. I was living alone in the house that and was unwell. Someone had and come rang the bell (I was a little supremosed since I knew no was supposed to come home for anything) and didn't stop for atleast 20 min. It was continuous and aggressive ringing of bell that scared me to hell as I didn't know who was out there...I couldn't see anything from the peep hole. During this moment I was on call with my friend who also got scared for my safety. Later he messaged me saying that he had come to place as he was worried. Usually in my experience if you're ignoring a person completely, they take the hint and stay, and I was baffled to see him continue to approach me and I found him incredibly insensitive for coming to hous late at night without anyinvitation and sort of harrassing me. I don't reply to his messaged and just ignored.
When he joined work a week ago or so, for 2 days he was very curt and standofish towards me. Then he again started behaving the way he used to with me before. Being friendly, teasing me, light touches here there, trying to have private convos with me at work place. I have maintained my distance from him, I don't indulge in any of his forward behaviours, I have instead asked my work girlfriends always be around me, not to leave me alone with him and I have been very much passive aggressive towards him to make him understand through my actions that I am not interested in him. Just yesterday while I was call with mom he grabbed my hand tried to pull me towards him to probably hug or something as he could see I was stressed on call but I instantly pulled my hand away slowly walked away whole talking to my mom. Now my boss has made him sit next to me, which gives him enough excuse to touch me innocently or interact with me. I am totally annoyed maybe even angry to be in his presence, his smell and touch annoys me and makes feel disgusted.
I have told my parents of the situation but just the his advances part since they are traditional Indian parents and can't tell them I was sexually active with a guy before marriage. They suggested i report to my boss and she'll help sort it out, but I know that's not a solution since I allowed myself to get involved in the beginning.
I just don't understand how to go about this. As this thing is going to make me slowly go crazy, give me anxiety and will end my fucking with head so much that I fuck up at work. I don't know how to make him understand to stay away from me, without hurting his ego or causing problem to our working relationship.
Please advice! Any advice is appreciated.

2023.06.07 11:55 byte_marx Throw the towel in on finances in order to achieve a clean break?

Hi Folks, I'm UK based and filed for divorce back in January. Our condiional order has just come through and we employed the services of Amicable for our mediation and finance agreement.
We have only really our house and some savings. My ex is due to receive some inheritance towards the end of next year but we dont know how much yet as its dependant on a house sale. We have two kids at Uni and two at secondary school. Only the younger two are under 18. At the moment I live in the family home and my ex has moved into a rental. she is in a new relationship so this works better as far as that is concerned. We have the kids 50/50
My ex earns a much lower income than me so that any split would end up with her needing about 80-90% of the money to meet her housing needs.
Amicable told us that our choices are putting it very basically:
1 - I buy my ex out but I dont have enough unless she agrees to take her inheritance into consideration.
2 - We sell the family home now or later, split the money accordingly and move on.
For option 1 - we have to stay married on the conditional order step until we agree on the financial settlement. For option 2 - we could potentially negotiate a settlment right away and divorce sooner.
I was wondering if it might be easier to sell the family home give her all of the remaining equity and keep my pension (she could use her inheirtance for hers). This will allow her to live mortgage free and then I could rent and then save for a deposit and start again. Assuming she agrees to this then does anyone see any issues with this? Of course I could push for more but I feel like I want to just draw a line, close the book on this part of my life and move on.
Have any of you just "thrown in the towel" and givne your ex everything and found that its better this way? Interested to hear opinions

2023.06.07 11:55 kiindredblogs Do I owe a sibling to my only child?

Do I owe a sibling to my only child?
The decision to have children is one of the most significant choices individuals or couples face in their lives. For some, the question arises after having one child and contemplating whether to expand their family further. Parents who have only one child may find themselves pondering whether they owe a sibling to their son or daughter. This internal debate can be complex, emotionally charged, and deeply personal, as it involves weighing various factors and considering the long-term implications for both the child and the family as a whole.
To address this question, it's important to recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Every family is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Instead, it is essential to evaluate the various perspectives and factors that can influence this decision-making process.
First and foremost, consider the well-being and happiness of your only child. Many parents worry that without a sibling, their child may miss out on the benefits of companionship, emotional support, and shared experiences that come with having a brother or sister. Siblings can provide a built-in playmate, someone to confide in, and lifelong companionship. Growing up with a sibling can teach important lessons about sharing, cooperation, and conflict resolution. Furthermore, siblings often offer support in adulthood, particularly during challenging times such as the loss of a parent.
On the other hand, having a sibling is not a guarantee of a positive relationship or increased happiness. Siblings can have diverse personalities, interests, and temperaments, which may result in conflicts and rivalries. Adding another child to the family also means dividing parental attention and resources, which could potentially strain relationships or impact the quality of care provided to each child.
Financial considerations are another significant aspect to take into account. Raising a child requires substantial financial resources, and expanding the family further amplifies these demands. Parents must evaluate whether they can comfortably provide for the physical, educational, and emotional needs of another child without jeopardizing the well-being of their current one. It's crucial to assess the potential impact on the family's financial stability, lifestyle, and future goals.
Additionally, parents must reflect on their own desires, aspirations, and capabilities. Some individuals or couples feel complete and content with one child, enjoying the freedom, flexibility, and closeness that comes with a smaller family unit. Others may have always envisioned a larger family and yearn for the experience of raising multiple children. It's important to be honest with oneself and communicate openly with your partner about these desires and expectations.
It's worth mentioning that the decision to have or not have a sibling for your only child does not have to be permanent. Families can choose to have another child or remain with a single child at different stages of their lives. Adoption, fostering, or blended families can also provide opportunities for siblings to enter the picture, if desired, even if biological siblings are not a possibility.
Ultimately, the decision regarding whether to provide a sibling to your only child should prioritize the well-being and happiness of all family members involved. It should be a decision made through thoughtful consideration, open communication, and an understanding that there is no right or wrong answer. What matters most is creating an environment of love, support, and stability for your child, regardless of the family size.
In conclusion, the question of owing a sibling to your only child is a deeply personal one. Parents must carefully weigh the benefits and challenges of adding another child to the family, while considering the happiness and well-being of their current child. It is a decision that should be made with open dialogue, self-reflection, and an awareness of the unique dynamics and circumstances of each individual family. Remember, there is no universal answer—what truly matters is the love and care you provide to your child, regardless of the number of siblings they may have.

2023.06.07 11:55 Ahordeofbadgers Please Help Me Understand My Son

Hello all,
So I am hoping a group with 300k+ members might have a few people willing to take a stab at helping me. My son is 20 and recently was duagnosed with BPD and some other common neighboring diagnoses. He is getting through school pretty well and no problems working. He has had a steady GF since high school who he lives with and they seem to be pretty good together 90% of the time. He's absolutely great and has a lot going for him. I love him to the moon and back.
What I am asking for advice with is how to better help him and avoid triggering him. When things go upside down in his relationship, he shares and vents with me (a good thing) and that's fine. I ask him questions to understand and he seems to be making good decisions or at least has a good logical thought process for understanding what's going on. The problem is, when he shares like this, his GF seems to be manipulating him and actually not too great at supporting him. He has been sent off the deep end a few times when she treats him poorly or they fight. He has legitimate reasons for feeling abused by her, but he always goes back and doesn't take action on the things he knows and says he should when talking to me about it (take time for himself, make his own calendar and decisions, do things he enjoys and occasionally be separate from hespend time with family).
Recently we had a disagreement about how much time he was spending at GFs house after a fight and all his stuff landed at home. Obviously I can't force him to end the relationship, and sometimes I'm not sure if maybe what he tells me is exaggerated by his emotional state when he vents. Often if he feels she is not supporting him, he vents to me that I'm not supporting him and nobody does anything to help him/support him (conflating one person's actions with the whole world being against him).
When this happens, I try to validate his feelings, but I push back a bit about the not-quite-reality of his viewpoint. After all, there are lots of people that love and support him. He sometimes exaggerates a memory (his asking for a general favor turns into "that one time you didn't do that favor and I gave you a 1 day time limit and you didn't do it in a day so you failed me) to match his current emotional state (everybody fails me). I will ask him to explain why he feels this way and he resorts to hypotheticals about why he should feel this way, and I ask him to give a concrete example and he gets upset and says "I was just giving you an EXAMPLE!" even though he is basing his current hurt feelings on a made-up example.
I guess what I am trying to ask is, how can I validate my son's feelings and be a good listener and support that he can rely on, without reinforcing and enabling his tendency to conflate individual problems into "the world is against me," or how can I sensitively remind him that he should check the facts on the ground and not just the story he has in his head about someone's actions??
I want to listen and validate but I don't want to enable him to engage in downward spiraling by agreeing with "facts" about why he feels the way he feels, that are not things that actually happened, or memories that are being edited/imbellished, or attributions of people's thoughts and reasons for their actions that he can't possibly know?
Every time I try to reality check him on these things, he gets angry and tells me I'm a bad listener and I don't validate him and do the simple things he's asking me to do. It's like he wants me to just be a sponge for his emotional tripping and not try to help him sort things out or go with the facts. I really struggle to do this, and I refuse to help reinforce negative thoughts or feelings or exaggerated memories about people that do, in fact, love and support him.
Please, if you have BPD or have dealt with similar situations, please share what your own journey/perspective is or was and please, please help me better understand and help my son through this.
How can I be a good listener for him without enabling and validating his negative tripping about others, myself included???
Thank you for trying!

2023.06.07 11:55 Havok1394 (38M) Ankle Non Union

[M38] Medial Malleolar Fracture Non Union
38M - Canada December 2021 Fell off a 20 to 25 foot ladder. Landed upright on both feet. Broke left ankle. Still suffering from pain and mobility issues.
Medial Malleolar Fracture 3mm gap between Fracture and tibia (now down to 2mm)
Half this report is in French…
“Il n’y a qu’une legere consolidation partielle de la fracture a son tiers posterieurs. Il n’y a qu’un petit cal osseux le long de la fracture au niveau de la vis. Ce cal osseux s’etend sur environs 25 a 30% de la fracture. Plus de 70% de la fracture n’est pas consolidée”
Basically translates to: Only a small consolidation (union) of fracture. There is a small bone callus (cal osseux) which covers about 25 to 30% of fracture. More than 70% of fracture is non consolidated (non union)
From the MRI report: Superficial deltoid is not well seen and may be torn. Chronic thickening of tibialis posterior tendon partially obscured by artifact but not completely torn.
The “experts” completely ignored the MRI and CT scan. They both clearly show a non union with partial healing of the fracture.
Complex file. Don’t have access to much imaging. Shown is an xray from April 2022.
My Orthopedist refuses to operate again (he has yet to see MRI/CT scan, appointment in a few weeks). Physio keeps me stable but I have shown little to no improvement since last year. Currently waking with a cane, most days I’m in so much pain that I think of taking out the crutches.
How screwed am I? What other options can I try?

2023.06.07 11:54 TheDoomedHeretic Unbound: Dragon Age [And other fandoms.]

Looking for a GM interested in a retelling that takes place during the events of Inquisition or Origins with a similar starting stage of the games; we'd be following the road of a runaway elven slave from Tevinter. I'm an advanced-novella writer and will provide writing samples. My aim with this is to be much more thorough and methodical with our storytelling than the RPGs; less whitewashing during Inquisition, etc. Below serves as the loose opener I had in mind for an Origins story, but I'm very much not married to it and will abandon it entirely. It's worth mentioning that my profile has a pinned message that contains a variety of other prompts if this one isn't of interest.
Dark figures haunted the cliffs around them, hazily falling in and out of sight as they drew close before disappearing into the far distance, what little she could hear from them draining away into the cool, midnight air. Her and her companions had started running into other caravans three nights ago, Duncan’s presence alone keeping them from being absorbed into any of the other troupes even when they far outsized her own. Some decided to tag along, but most decided to keep their distance when they spotted the Qunari, or the blood mage, or one of their elves- especially her. None dared to speak outloud what their eyes said, and, whether they joined them or not, just as few refused to trade words or supplies. The good word from the front was everchanging and plentiful. Many wished to know whether their Lord had arrived and would slink away if Sylvan’s crew had nothing to offer them.
‘What about the skirmish at Fuck-all-Woods? Did you hear anything about a knight with a powderkeg on his shield? He’s my cous, and I fret for him so. My wife ran off to join the Wardens, have you seen her?’
Some of the Wardens would step away to speak quietly with Duncan. Not seeing fit to tell her commander her secrets, she hadn’t bothered to tell him about how keen her hearing was. Perhaps he knew, considering she’d never managed to hear anything interesting. Deaths, mostly. Names she didn’t recognize and sullen looks on faces with practiced, comforting words to stem some of the heartache.
The Wardens had, nearly to a man and woman, stuck around. They littered around the campfires like debris, enjoying one another’s company with the scattered few faces she recognized joining them. Looking for advice, maybe. Wisdom from their elders. Or for whoever had the best beer.
In the distance, her eyes caught the faintest peaks of Ostagar. She’d joined the crowds when the sun had fallen, but she could only tolerate soldiers for so long, and she’d already talked a frizzy haired, pleasantly shaped serving girl two taverns back into handing over a few bottles of the ‘good stuff.’
It was good. Shit at getting her drunk, and barely passable for piss back north, but it teased her taste buds and left a pleasant buzz in her eyes that made the colors on the horizon form into colors she was trying to fall asleep to. They hadn’t succeeded yet, but there was half a bottle left until she could decide she’d been swindled.

2023.06.07 11:53 Its-delicat 2 years after “the change” and it’s not getting better

I’m at my wits end. I don’t know why I feel the need to chronicle but I feel like it’s been built up and I’m so frustrated and at my wits end I need to somehow write this all out. Maybe once it’s in text it’ll make more sense to me? Now that I wrote it out im realizing this is the longest rant I’ve ever written and it’s pretty stream of consciousness. I’ll summarize at the bottom for ease because you definitely don’t need to read my scattered frustrated tirade!
We’ve only been together 3 years. It started with multiple times a day, which I know is not sustainable and I did not expect to last after puppydog stage and that was FINE. After about 2 months it dropped to a couple times a month, with a little vibe action on the side or mutual parallel play, also very satisfying and fun and felt like a great settled-in normal. Things were fun, experimental, and we bought lots of fun toys and gear to try out and explore! It was going great and we were creating a life and home together and delving into left field sexually and it was working GREAT! From my perspective and according to all conversations (which felt honest and open the whole time) we were having fun and always excited for new things!
After the first 10 or so months, one day little did I know was the last time. Suddenly he’s “too tired” or “not in the mood”. We were on opposite shifts but every weekend I fucked up MY schedule to be on his. I was up 36 hours straight or slept 4-5 hours over 3 days so we could spend time together. He never stayed up late or got up early… how the fuck is he “too tired”? I was ready to go all the time and it was always a no. After a full day of dirty talk and expectation I’m getting all done up in something kinky and crawling into bed ready to realize a days worth of conversation and innuendo and “ahhhhh well maybe not tonight”. You can only shamefully shed a strappy skintight bodysuit so many times and stuff it back in the drawer embarrassed before you just stop trying.
But then when I try initiating in a baggy T-shirt and briefs I “never dress up” and “sometimes guys need to be courted too!”. So I dial up the dirty talk, I send little peeks from the stall at work, I flirt by text, send sexy memes. I take him out, buy him dinner and random “just cuz I love you!” Gifts. I flirt and grope and hint and it’s always met enthusiastically and positively when it’s just talk, but it goes from “let’s go shower! I’ll suck your dick!” met with grins and nods, to “hey can you move I need to wash my hair… ok all done here’s your towel”.
Multiple MULTIPLE discussions of “well work is really hard right now” or “I’m just tired” “I just haven’t been in the mood” etc. If I directly ask it’s “well I’m not in the mood but please don’t go look for sex elsewhere”
A year and a half. We had sex once last summer out of the blue. Just trying to sleep and I had hands on me and I was so excited. I don’t know what I did and that was awesome!….and next morning back to the same. We went on an extravagant vacation in December. Lots of alone time, beautiful places. We had sex once, out of the blue, so drunk I don’t know if he remembers and I hardly do. And we got home and back to the same. I beg and flirt and ask and I get “well I’m not in the mood but please don’t go look for sex elsewhere”.
Dressing up, making an effort, rejected over and over. Stop dressing up, bring up my frustrations and it’s “try dressing up and flirting more im just not in the mood TODAY”. Always that unspoken hope of maybe tomorrow? Until tomorrow I get “well I’m not in the mood but please don’t go look for sex elsewhere”.
Then in January I suffered a significant spinal injury. For the last 6 months I could hardly walk, constantly in pain. I basically just did physical therapy, slept, and suffered. And it became “I’m so sorry we can’t have sex, but with your injury I would never be able to without hurting you!”. Which was true. I couldn’t think about sex when I needed all my energy and focus to walk across the room, and even then I was in blinding pain.
During my worst pain and nerve impairment in my lower body he was so supportive! We had consistent eager sexual conversation, constant encouragement and support for masturbation because it was all I could handle. I really felt that once I healed we’d be back on track.
Then 3 weeks ago I finally hit a milestone in recovery. Thanks to the most recent treatment I have full feeling below the waist, and full mobility. I can work out, walk, lift, jog!! Everything seems perfect! My body is back! During those 5 months I gained about 10lbs because of the immobility. I’ve always been very fit, almost no jiggle and work a very physically strenuous job so I had no issues with staying trim and small. Im tall so 10lbs on my frame filled out my hips a little, a little more cellulite but no rolls, no belly, no face changes. I cannot honestly believe my body changed so significantly it’s no longer attractive and he still insists he can’t even tell. Tells me I’m still just as attractive and my body is perfect, but I touch him and it’s like I’m a hideous beluga from hell. Chaste kisses and quickly flipping to face the other way.
Verbally he seems so proud of me, so interested and so flirty ALL THE TIME, but we climb into bed and it’s “Goodnight!” Quick flip, lamp off, snoring.
The worst part is my worst day was the time we finally had sex again. Once again, out of nowhere lusty kisses, sex, everything I’ve always liked. All the details with a cherry on top! I don’t know what I did.
Now a couple weeks go by and it’s chaste closed mouth pecks, “goodnight” quick flip away, lamp off, goodnight, “too tired”.
I express how I’m finally back in my body and after so long I finally have my libido back and how amazing, exciting and wonderful this is. Every time the conversation goes “well I’m not in the mood but please don’t go look for sex elsewhere”.
How does someone with the libido I saw for those first 10 months just turn it off for YEARS? I’m struggling and he says he’s fine just whacking it out. That’s all he wants or needs. He’s not straying, we’re pretty tightly scheduled, we have shared GPS, we’re in touch pretty much all day every day. He’s not getting it elsewhere, but for me this level is not sustainable or survivable.
I always thought a DB was the sign of a relationship in decline but outside of sex our relationship is so strong and open and developing into the life I want… Except I need the physical connection like I need to breath and I’m fucking suffocating. I can’t even put myself in a headspace where you’d live like this by choice, so I simply cannot understand how this can seem ok.
TL;DR: 10 months of our 3 years was an active experimental sex life. And then like a flip of a switch one day he’s always too tired, or not on the mood. Verbally always eager, complementary, and excited for sex, but it almost never actually happens. In the last 2 years I can remember having sex 3 times, all out of the blue, no explanation or attempt on my part it just happened. But come morning we’re back to chaste kisses that get broken off if I try to turn them into anything.
I got injured and couldn’t have sex, which in retrospect seems like it was the best thing ever for him because I stopped asking. Once I healed and expressed my return to HL, I feel like I got one night of fun and now it feels like the expectation is we return to no-sex status quo.
Despite every other aspect of our relationship blooming and becoming better over time, the bedroom is dead as doornails and I feel I can’t get past it.

2023.06.07 11:53 EconomyAdvantage2492 When will the UAE Corporate Tax become effective?

The implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax marks a significant shift in the country's taxation landscape. After years of operating as a tax-free haven for businesses, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced its decision to introduce corporate taxation. This new policy is set to become effective on January 1, 2023. As this date approaches, businesses operating within the UAE are preparing to navigate the complexities of this tax regime and adjust their strategies accordingly. This introduction of corporate taxation in the UAE will have far-reaching implications for both local and international companies, shaping the economic landscape of the country and influencing business operations and decision-making.

Effective Date of the UAE Corporate Tax:

The Corporate Tax in UAE is scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2023. This marks a significant change in the taxation landscape of the United Arab Emirates, which has traditionally been known for its tax-free environment. The implementation of corporate taxation signifies the country's commitment to diversifying its revenue sources and aligning with global tax standards. Businesses operating in the UAE are gearing up for this transition, adjusting their financial strategies and compliance practices to comply with the new tax regulations. The effective date of the UAE Corporate Tax serves as a milestone that will shape the future of taxation in the country and have a profound impact on the business community.

Transition Period and Preparation:

During the transition period leading up to the implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax on January 1, 2023, businesses have been given time to prepare for the changes ahead. This phased approach to implementation allows companies operating in the UAE to adjust their financial and operational strategies to comply with the new tax regime.
The transition period offers businesses an opportunity to understand the intricacies of the corporate tax framework, assess the potential impact on their operations and profitability, and implement necessary adjustments to ensure compliance. It is crucial for companies to engage in thorough tax planning, reviewing their financial structures, and evaluating the potential tax implications on their business activities.
Preparation efforts during this period may include conducting tax impact assessments, revising financial models, enhancing accounting systems, and ensuring accurate record-keeping to facilitate proper reporting and compliance with the new tax regulations. Additionally, businesses are advised to seek guidance from tax experts and consultants who can provide valuable insights and assistance in navigating the complexities of the UAE Corporate Tax.
Proactive preparation and early adoption of necessary measures during the transition period will enable businesses to smoothly transition into the new tax regime and mitigate potential risks or disruptions to their operations. By diligently preparing for the implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax, companies can position themselves to meet their tax obligations effectively and maintain compliance in the evolving tax landscape of the UAE.

Key Changes and Considerations:

The implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax brings about several key changes and considerations for businesses operating in the country. Understanding these changes is crucial for companies to adapt their strategies and ensure compliance. Here are some key aspects to consider:

Taxation of Profits:

Under the new regime, businesses will be subject to corporate tax on their profits. The tax rates and thresholds will be defined by the UAE government, and companies will need to assess the impact on their profitability and cash flow.

Compliance Requirements:

Businesses will be required to fulfil various compliance obligations, including maintaining accurate financial records, filing tax returns, and adhering to reporting deadlines. Compliance with these requirements will be essential to avoid penalties and ensure a smooth transition into the new tax system.

Financial Planning and Restructuring:

With the introduction of corporate taxation, companies will need to review their financial structures and assess the potential tax implications. This may involve considering restructuring options, revisiting intercompany transactions, and optimizing their overall tax position.

Impact on Business Operations:

The implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax may have implications for the overall cost of doing business in the country. Companies will need to evaluate how the tax burden may affect their pricing strategies, investment decisions, and profitability.

Double Taxation Agreements:

Businesses with international operations will need to consider the impact of the UAE Corporate Tax on their existing double taxation agreements (DTAs). DTAs may provide relief from double taxation by allowing for tax credits or exemptions, and companies will need to assess the impact of the new tax regime on their treaty benefits.

Tax Planning and Advisory Services:

Engaging tax experts and advisors will be crucial for businesses to navigate the complexities of the new tax framework. Professional guidance can help companies understand their tax obligations, identify opportunities for optimization, and ensure compliance with the UAE Corporate Tax.
It is essential for businesses to carefully assess these key changes and considerations to effectively adapt their financial strategies, comply with tax requirements, and mitigate potential risks associated with the implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax.

Potential Benefits and Challenges:

The implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax brings both potential benefits and challenges for businesses operating in the country. Understanding these can help companies navigate the new tax landscape effectively. Here are some potential benefits and challenges to consider:


· Diversified Revenue: The introduction of corporate taxation allows the UAE government to diversify its revenue sources beyond oil and gas. This can contribute to the sustainable development of the economy and provide a more stable fiscal base.
· Enhanced Infrastructure and Public Services: The revenue generated from corporate taxation can be channelled towards the development of infrastructure projects and public services, such as healthcare, education, and transportation. This can lead to improved quality of life and business environment in the long term.
· International Alignment: The implementation of corporate taxation aligns the UAE with global tax standards, fostering transparency and strengthening its position as a reliable business hub. This can attract foreign investment and promote economic growth.
· Stimulated Economic Development: The UAE Corporate Tax can incentivize businesses to reinvest profits locally, stimulating economic development, and fostering entrepreneurship and innovation within the country.


· Compliance Complexity: The new tax regime introduces compliance requirements that businesses need to navigate, including accurate record-keeping, tax return filing, and adherence to reporting obligations. Ensuring compliance can be complex, especially for businesses with intricate financial structures or multinational operations.
· Impact on Profitability: Corporate taxation may reduce overall profitability for businesses operating in the UAE. Companies need to assess the impact of the tax burden on their financial performance, cash flow, and pricing strategies to maintain competitiveness in the market.
· Transition and Adjustment Costs: Businesses may incur costs associated with transitioning to the new tax system, such as restructuring financial operations, implementing new accounting systems, and training personnel. These costs need to be considered and managed effectively during the transition period.
· Double Taxation Risks: For businesses with international operations, the UAE Corporate Tax may intersect with tax obligations in other jurisdictions, potentially leading to double taxation. It is important to consider existing double taxation agreements or seek expert advice to mitigate this risk and ensure tax efficiency.
· Potential Business Disruptions: Adjusting to the new tax regime may require changes in business strategies, financial models, and operational processes. Companies should anticipate potential disruptions during the transition and take proactive measures to minimize any negative impacts on their operations.
By carefully considering these potential benefits and challenges, businesses can adapt their strategies, implement necessary changes, and leverage the opportunities presented by the implementation of the UAE Corporate Tax.

2023.06.07 11:53 Mamagirl1990 AITA for cutting off my mom?

So…Me and my mom used to be thick as thieves until she met my stepdad which is now her ex husband (still my stepdad though he’s a great man) and idk if she just got older and did a whole 360 or I got older too and just started realizing how much I don’t like her as a person. I’m 33 she is 54 soon to be 55, and she irks every ounce of my existence. She is narcissistic selfish dramatic past obsessed she lies and twists things tickle her fancy and NEVER takes blame..she is also extremely intrusive. My husband and I have a son now who is 19 months old. She always claimed she wanted to be a grandma but the times when we are speaking she hardly ever asks about him..doesn’t buy him anything (which isn’t really important it’s the principle) when she does stop By it’s always and I mean ALWAYS either before any of us are awake or RIGHT when I’m getting him down for a nap. Hell she beats the damn door down like the feds finding the biggest drug dealer ever. Then she stays for 5-10 mins long enough to take forced pics with my child so she looks like a real grandma on Facebook 🤦‍♀️ she’s always in a hurry or some bullshit. She never even calls to see if she can come over or if we have something else going on and I’m a big fan of at least a text ahead of time..but God forbid we not be home or have company then it’s “oh I see you or you keep him away from me” she doesn’t work she has like a thrift store and my Sons other grandma who is extremely involved btw my mom always acts like she’s in competition with her because she owns a well known restaurant in our area and she does A lot for my Son. She doesn’t offer to help me do anything like babysit or help me clean when she says my house is “filthy” and she’s always got something negative to say or has something to blame me For like being close with my nana who is her mom and she always tries to tell me Things she supposedly said About me trying to get us against each other. Mother’s Day I spent all day with every little dime I had made from a yard Sale which wasn’t much to try and find her the best present and get some Pics of my son printed for her as well and it took forever and I wanted one on canvas for my mother in law they then come up and tell me they have to redo that one. Btw we had been sick the previous week and so I did a yard sale the Saturday before from 7-4 and I was too tired to go shopping afterwards so I went when we got done seeing my MIL who was at work. My mom is very big on gifts and is hard to please with them so I really wanted to find something great well I got home about 6pm and she refused to see me I took my Son to her house anyway we banged on doors and windows my phone was dying so I sat on her porch charging it trying to call her she never answered my calls texts or the door and I broke down crying because I wasted my own Mother’s Day trying to make hers special and didn’t even get to spend much time with my own kid. So am I the asshole for ceasing contact with her after that? Oh also she posted my newborn son on Facebook Right after he was born and we hadn’t even decided to do so yet, she never asked and then told her friends and my family I didn’t want anything to do With him because I was on a lot of pain meds and felt so messed up after my c section so the nurse asked if I wanted her to take him to the nursery so I could rest an hour or 2. Mind you I had held My child before this happened.There’s so much more I could write and I have so many texts of her narcissistic behavior but this is long enough lol now She’s trying to get me to apologize and I’m so just confused and exhausted by her.

2023.06.07 11:52 JackedAndStacked Monogamous man, with two partners. Can't figure this out...

Last year, me (M26), and my partner (F28) of 5.5 years decided to open up our relationship. This was upon my suggestion. My partner was initially insecure and anxious, as one would probably expect after hearing a suggestion like this while in a long term monogamous relationship. But she is incredibly supportive and agreed, believing it would help the relationship if I felt that it was something I needed (reasoning was mostly due to meeting at a very young age, being romantically inexperienced, and craving exploration etc).
9 months ago I met someone (F23) who I vibed with really well. Our dates were great, she was sensibly cautious about the enm concept, but clearly very open minded, very understanding, and respectful of my primary relationship. Fast forward and I have fallen in love with her and her with me (so she says). This was upsetting to my primary partner when I told her, but she being the supportive angel that she is, accepts this, knowing it was always a possibility. She hasn't been able to find a connection like the one I have, as the guys that she has liked, have all been very monogamous and they can't get past it. Most nm dudes just seem to want to get in her pants which she doesn't want.
The issue is, I have come to the realisation after this non-monogamous experiment that I am monogamous after all. I too seek strong connection, and casual sex while somewhat exciting in the moment, actually leaves me very unfulfilled and craving emotional intimacy. While I love my primary partner more than anyone else on Earth, I am no longer romantically connected with her. Its not that she isn't attractive, she very much is, but our intimacy (both sexual and general) has heavily declined over time (perhaps the struggles of enm didn't help either). I see her more as family, the closest family I have at that, but I can't get over the fact that we don't seem to be romantically compatible. At the same time, I would like to be free to progress my romantic relationship with my other partner.
On the other hand my primary partner and I share an incredibly strong attachment. There is a level of trust there that I can't compare to anything else, and that same degree of trust does not yet exist with my other partner. I want to maintain the emotional bond that I have, but know that leaving would likely jeopardise that. At the same time I am fearful that if my relationship with my 'secondary' doesn't work out in a monogamous context, I could be left with nothing, so naturally I'm riddled with anxiety atm. I also live with my primary and we are fairly financially entwined which adds another complication.
To summarise, I feel like I can't continue with my primary in a romantic context, but desperately want her to remain in my life and to be a part of hers. I also want to be romantically monogamous with my current secondary, but am uncertain and insecure about our future, and the cost of pursuing it is likely huge. I also don't want to hurt anyone I love, but it seems impossible to avoid.
Any suggestion on how I can work through this would be deeply appreciated. I am not in a great place right now, so I'm hoping other people insights might present some unexplored paths.
