Please Double Check if You, Your Parents, and Grandparents are signed up for Fair Pharmacare

2023.06.06 04:43 PeensMagicalBeans Please Double Check if You, Your Parents, and Grandparents are signed up for Fair Pharmacare

My heart sank today at the pharmacy when I saw someone decline to pick up all of their prescriptions because they were out of this person's budget. For their privacy, I didn't approach them to tell them about Fair Pharmacare, but I hope this information will spread. Even if you are 13 years old, ask your parents about this. If they aren't registered, I am sure that they will be grateful for you bringing it up. Please also bring your laptop to your grandparent's place and help them with this, along with any immigrant family you know.
Note: I don't work for the government. I can't guarantee everything I say is accurate, but I can confidently say for the most part it is.
What is Fair Pharmacare: Fair PharmaCare helps B.C. families/individuals pay for many prescription drugs, dispensing fees and some medical devices and supplies. The plan is based on income. The less you earn, the lower your deductible (you might not have one). Everyone should register even if they make $1M/year.
I have benefits through work/school so why do I need this?: Many benefit plans will deny coverage if you have not registered for Fair Pharmacare. Benefit plans do not want to pay for something when the government could be paying for it. They may cover something at lower costs, but when you get into $10,000+ drugs, they will likely be auditing to see if you are registered. Also, what if you lose your job? You may as well register.
If I am here on a work permit or student visa do I qualify?: Yes. You might not be able to register online. Call 604-683-7151. You will likely need to manually complete some forms.
I think that I am already registered. Where do I confirm?: You can confirm via this link. A lot of people assume that because they have MSP, they are registered, but they are not. It is not automatic.
Where do I register?: Unless you are here on a work permit, student permit, or haven't filed your 2022 and 2021 taxes, you can register here.
What information do I need to register?: Your MSP number and information from your CRA notice of assessment.
Why aren't all British Columbians automatically registered for Fair Pharmacare?: My educated guess based on consent and experience is that the Provincial government does not have automatic consent to access information about your income from the Federal government. You need to provide that consent.
Do I need to register every year?: No. The Provincial government will automatically access your information from the Feds and update your deductible amount. There are some situations that you will need to re-register, like moving out of Province and coming back, but I'm not getting into that today.
I lost my job. Can I have my Fair Pharmacare deductible adjusted?: Yes. If your income went down by more than 10% of your net income from two years ago, you can apply for an income review. Visit this page for more information.
What if I can't afford my deductible and need my medication?: You can have your deductible spread out over the year so you are not paying it out all at once. There is some information here, but contact Fair Pharmacare for more information.
What prescriptions are covered?: You can see what prescriptions are covered by searching the BC Pharmacare Formulary. You can ask your doctor to prescribe something that is covered. Click on the hyperlinked DIN number for actual information. Some medications require special authority or are only covered under certain plans (eg. Plan G for patients receiving psychiatric care - don't ask me about this because I know nothing). Here is a general list of the supplies that Fair Pharmacare covers.
What is Special Authority?: Special Authority is full or partial coverage that requires a special circumstance. Your doctor needs to fill out a Special Authority Form to get coverage. For some drugs, all that is required is a diagnosis (eg. a diagnosis of Acne for Retin-A) or it requires you having tried one of the drugs that are already covered and it didn't work for you (eg. trying Dexadrine before getting Vyvanse covered for ADHD).
How long does it take Special Authority to be processed?: It can take up to business days for a Special Authority request to be processed. Some are done faster. You can login to BC Health Gatweway and filter by Special Authority to see if it is approved. I think that you need to register for the BC Services Card App to login to the health gateway.
How many days can be dispensed at a time on Fair Pharmacare?: This varies and you should be very mindful of this. Always ask your pharmacist about this because I have been out of pocket $200 when I wanted 90 days for convenience but one prescription would only be covered for 30 days at a time.
My prescription is not covered through Fair Pharmacare. What can I do about this?: BC has a drug review process%20or%20a%20non%2Dbenefit). Check to see if it has been approved by Health Canada and reviewed by CADTH. Take a look at what their reports said about the drug. If your drug was recommended for approval but BC still does not cover it, [e-mail the Ministry of Health](mailto:[email protected]). Maybe even the Minister of Health and your local MLA. Some years ago, I noticed that BC covered a drug for people under the age of 18, but no longer for those 18+. I e-mailed the government pointing out the reports, stating that it didn't make sense because the condition doesn't magically go away when the person turns 18, and guess what - they changed the policy a couple of months later.
The BC Government does regularly solicit feedback on drug coverage. I get an e-mail periodically with a list of medications that they will be soliciting feedback for, but I can't even remember how or where I signed up for it. You can subscribe for updates to this public page which I imagine does the same thing as the e-mail I receive does.
What else can I do to make a difference?: I am not sure which is the correct body (BC Pharmacy Association, BC College of Pharmacists, BC Government), but personally I would like a campaign that has a sticker, cards, or something at every pharmacy in BC that shares information about Fair Pharmacare. If someone is being rung up and Pharmacare isn't listed on their receipt, the cashier is required to tell them about it. Perhaps government employees or Pharmacists can comment and let us know which body would be in charge of making this happen.
Hopefully this information helps. We are very lucky in BC that we have this program that applies to all British Columbians instead of just seniors and children. This can save you a huge amount of money. I often hear people complaining about the cost of Vyvanse and they have no clue that they can get it covered through Fair Pharmacare's Special Authority program. I hope this helps you or someone that you know.
If you really want to give back to your community, stop making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and handing them out at Main/Hastings. Consider visiting a senior or hosting something in your condo's amenity room that walks people through the registration process. This will make a difference in a meaningful way.

2023.06.06 04:40 CaliRach Resume advice after unemployment

I was laid off from my manager-level biotech job on Jan 1, 2023. I’ve had little interest/few interviews after the nearly 200 applications I sent out, and no luck ultimately landing a new job. Everyone wants to interview me for manager-level jobs, but I only have 2 years of higher level experience, and I honestly hated being a manager so I’m looking for more of a lead-level job. These seem very hard to come by.
Anyway, since being laid off, I’ve become a personal assistant and professional dogwalker to pay the bills. Should I put this on my resume? Or just leave it as a gap and say that I’m still currently unemployed?

2023.06.06 04:39 justtoventxoxo Desperate for Advice: Juggling Debt, my dad's Cancer, and a Hope for a Better Future

Hello Reddit,
I'm reaching out in the hopes of finding someone who can share stories or offer advice for a situation similar to mine. I'm a 24-year-old male, and both of my parents are facing serious health issues. My mother has various mental and physical ailments, while my father has been battling cancer, including lymphoma and bone cancer, for the past ten years. Unfortunately, his condition has worsened, and it's been especially challenging since September last year when I was trying to pursue my college education (in the UK).
Currently, I find myself in a difficult position, feeling powerless, financially strained, lonely, and lacking hope. I'm struggling with a £1200 debt that I can't pay off due to my insufficient income. After enduring a year of mental abuse and manipulation from my ex-partner of three years, I suffered severe depression, resulting in reduced working hours and frequent absences. I blame my ex-partner for the situation, not my employer. Additionally, my father's health requires constant attention, preventing me from increasing my work hours. Living on my wages alone is nearly impossible, and I frequently find myself in overdraft, barely able to afford anything.
I believe that working from home would be the ideal solution, but I have no experience outside of retail/food service. I'm currently studying social sciences/humanities with the hope of pursuing psychology at university next year. However, I'm unsure if I'll be able to leave home due to my father's condition. Moreover, if he passes away this year, I fear I'll be completely shattered, making it even more challenging to consider university. I anticipate my mother will require my full support in that case.
I'm uncertain about the specific advice I need, as I may be rambling due to my ADHD. However, I'm seeking guidance on my options, available assistance, and how to make progress in clearing my debt, saving money, and providing more for my parents. They are also struggling with debt, particularly my mother, who has exceeded the credit limits on multiple cards. Daily living has become a struggle, and while we receive help from food banks, it's still challenging. Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to ask for any additional details regarding my situation. Thank you in advance for your support.

2023.06.06 04:38 ObjectivePoem9848 Getting back with my ex (21 M,19 F)

Me (21,M) and my ex girlfriend (19,F) are attempting to get back together, we started dating again about a week ago after talking for about 2 months again, things have been going really well, my birthday just passed and she spent all week with me, the only issue we’ve been running into is when I ask her about her past, now she has made it clear she doesn’t want to talk about it, but me being the man I am and loving to hurt, I ask anyways and even though she does not want to talk about it she does, (some back story) we met in high school when she was a freshman and I was a junior, we hung out the summer between her sophomore year and my senior year, we spent almost everyday together within a friend group we had, but it didn’t work out, she actually dated a guy (my arch nemesis) in a spiteful manner to get back at me for getting a blow job from one of her friends, we still liked each other though and kept in small contact whenever we could, eventually at the beginning of 2020 when Covid happened it was my senior year and school and all got cancelled, being away from everyone we reconnected and and started talking for months before starting to date in may of 2020, we dated for a little while and we had our ups and downs, she was 16 I was 18 she was still kid and I was trying to grow up, eventually near the end of February of 2021 we decided to take a week break and I decided at the end I wasn’t going to get back with her, we split off and as the memes go I was ok at first and she wasn’t, but the script quickly flipped and I found myself in a world of pain while she had taken her time and gotten over things, she informed me that she had sex with 2 of the guys I “shouldn’t be worried about” who ultimately caused our breakup in the first place, this was within the first 2 months of us breaking up, I had already had fun of my own but it wasn’t with anyone who interfered with our relationship, so this news made me very upset, we had nasty words with each other and went out separate ways, again we had light contact and saw each other a few times throughout the last 2 years occasionally hooking up but not discussing anything in our personal lives, she graduated summer 2022 and went off to college about 2 hours away, while I stayed in our home town working, about 5 months ago we really stared talking again and realized we missed each other at the end of April I went up to her college to see her and we had a great time, it’s now June 2023 and we are dating again, she has slowly revealed things she had done in our 2 years apart, and every once in a while I pry at her and get more info on all the guys she slept with and how many times and when , all this information hurts me but I can’t help myself, although it is in a way helping me get over it, but she hates it when I bring stuff up and ask her about it, but I just can’t help myself, this is causing a strain on my relationship but I don’t think I can stop asking until I’m fully over it and I tried to explain that to her, she slept with 11+ people in 2 years, I was originally her 3rd sexual partner, it bothers me and makes me feel insecure and I just don’t know how to move forward or how to get over it, sorry for the long explanation. Should I keep trying to make it work?

2023.06.06 04:37 strawberrybrownnnn Ive improved myself to the extent that I can and I am still forever alone 29f

I 29f am a kind person, working in social work field. One thing I will say that is prob a huge red flag to guys is that I still live at home at my moms place. I have lived on my own but was back in school til recently which is why I am living at home til I save up for a few months. I have never had a committed relationship and it is really getting me down lately.
I am turning 30 in a couple months is getting me down bc I finally have my job sorted out, things are pretty good w my friends and family, my mental and physical health, but what I really want is a partner and to fall in love. Pretty much every guy sees me as just casual and the types of guys who go for me typically seek out younger girls. I look a lot younger than my age and so men will approach me thinking I am 21 then lose interest when they find out I am nearly 30. But even when I was younger, guys would lose interest quick or only pursue me for something casual. It makes me feel not good enough. I tend to overthink about my life dissatisfaction, but I know I would be happy with almost everything if I just had a positive relationship. Guys will ask me on a date and appear interested at first, compliment me a lot, then over a matter of days or weeks their interest drops, they start replying slower and it just fizzles out no matter how hard i try. This happens both on hinge and with guys I meet IRL ex. bars, through friends, etc. They always meet someone better looking and stop putting in effort with me.
I wanna give up and feel that I have missed the boat on finding love. I never am valued. maybe 1 guy in my whole life has treated me like I could be more than just a fling. I don't have too many problems having guys attracted to me but they never stay. I know I have good interpersonal skills as I am well liked by friends and colleagues, even strangers. Many of my friends are guys. But I cannot keep a guy's interest in me. Even guys who I have slept with but didn't want to date me will say "how do you not have a bf you are so cool, attractive, cute, funny etc". Yet they are not seeing that I would date them. They would sleep with me after some dates, tell me they dont want serious, then date another girl seriously the next week. its always like "Youre so great...for someone else...." I tend to get invested in 1 guy at a time only. But why does that have to be a bad thing? I value love and relationships more than money, career, etc. Yet I want a monogamous relationship so why is it impossible for me?
I feel cursed or something.

2023.06.06 04:37 sridges94 Advise About Diet

Hello all. First time caller, long time listener. Sorry for the poor formatting, I am on mobile.
I am seeking advise or suggestions on how to eat enough while on medication.
TL;DR: My medication is making me lose my appetite and it’s now affecting my health. What are ideas to help to eat when I don’t feel like eating?
For context, I have been taking Concerta name brand for over 20 years. I was diagnosed with ADD when I was a young child and have been taking the medication ever since. However, due to getting a new job - I had to get new health insurance. Previously, my insurance only covered name brand. Generics were considered too poor of quality for Aetna to cover.
Now, my new insurance covers only the generic and I have tried two different manufacturers version. Both are unreliable. The generics have an inconsistent extended release mechanism that you wouldn’t find with the name brand. Some days I find that I will peak around 3 hours but the next day I won’t peak until 6 or 7 hours in.
I have always struggled with my weight. I finally reached a healthy weight last year. Now, I have lost nearly 15 pounds in the last 6 or 8 weeks because I’m not able to eat as much as I used to.
Normally, I was able to comfortably eat 2-3 times a day with snacks in between and water. Now I am eating once every 24 hours, less water, ect.
I feel like if I start my mornings off right, and actually eating something when I take my medication, it’ll help reduce the lack of appetite symptoms I am feeling.
Any advise would be appreciated.

2023.06.06 04:35 Zestyclose_Youth3604 Job to career pipeline as a trans person

(Just to be clear, I'm grateful for the job, money is money. And while its not livable, at least I have a roof over my head. My rant isn't about being poor or anything, its just.. frustration)
To give some background, I'm 23, I live in Florida, and my parents who house me do not support trans people. Out of highschool, my mother and I had some disagreements about what I should do with my life (and due to some circumstances at that time, I wasn't strong enough to argue). It resulted in me going to work immediately instead of college. Now, several years later, I am only a part time freshman (and have been for two years) at my community college. If I am honest, I've been dragging my feet. My mother insists I need a vocational job, saying no other job will make me money or is reasonable. Plus she doesn't believe in four year degrees, saying they're a waste of time and will not get me a job. Even when expressing that most jobs ask for a minimum of a bachelors regardless of the degree field, she dismisses it and calls it ridiculous. Every time I bring up a vocational job that is even remotely tolerable, she shuts it down.
My mother, despite her disagreement, is obsessed with the idea of me being in the medical field.
There has never been anything I've wanted less for myself. That has been consistent for me since highschool. I don't want to be in the medical field, I hate it, it bores me, I dislike being in a service industry, and I don't support how it works in this country. My mother thinks I'm just underestimating myself.
Its been... maddening because I live with her and I do not feel like I can argue. And everytime I try to reason with her, she tells me I'm being childish and an asshole. Then blames millennials. I've had other people listen to her talk and they... definitely agree I'm not being an asshole in the conversation.
The truth is, I already work in a hospital. I do registration and insurance eligibilities. I enjoy working with insurance, even though I hate its reason for existence, the actual job is fun. Plus I've been able to help other trans people with their insurance issues if I've been aware of it. There's also been times where my presence has helped an LGBTQ person feel comfortable being in the hospital. Thats the only joy I've had working there. It does not balance out the negativity AT ALL. Because of my parents being very transphobic (not enough to kick me out but definitely too scary to comfortably discuss it), I have more or less gone back into the closet after highschool. Its very don't ask don't tell in my house. Cept for when they want to make fun of me for it or complain about trans people to me. I have been working in the hospital as if I'm not trans at all. Which, is good, because I hear the clinical team laugh at trans people, or say transphobic stuff. Even my own team, who are not clinical, has done this. On more than one occasion, I've been told to go peak at a trans person in their room because "they're so funny to look at". They all were normal people. I can't imagine coming out now in this environment... And its worse because while the company boasts for trans people (even the application has a pronouns section), I can't speak up about it because of the power dynamic. Plus, in Florida, that seems like a bad idea at the moment.
I want to... get on with my life. I'm twenty three. I wanted to start my transition by nineteen. I want to move out so I can safely do so. I want top surgery. I want to have my partner with me. I have to be so careful about how much I mention being trans to my parents because I don't want them to blame it on my also trans boyfriend. Since I spent so long scarcely mentioning it. Only when they questioned if I had grown out of it yet would I bring it up and remind them I've always been trans. I can't afford to move out and do things I'd like. I can barely afford my car payment and I'm getting 15 an hour!
If I want a job that pays better, I need a degree. If I want a degree, I need to move out. If I want to move out, I need a job that pays better. It never fuckin ends.
I'm so tired. I can't find anything that pays well enough for me to move out that doesn't require a degree. And even then, some places who require a degree don't pay enough. I feel so stuck. My mother thinks she's giving me this amazing opportunity to go to school and live under her roof so that I just have to pay for tuition and my car but not rent. Its just... not as grand as she thinks. I don't want to be in the clinical field. I want to get a degree and be an editor or a technical writer or in HR or SOMETHING. I even wouldn't mind doing IT. Except she turns it all down and I'm too anxious of what will happen if I ignore her.
My physical safety (in my house) isn't at risk at all. Which is good. I'm still scared though. There's a major power dynamic in my house. Their house, their rules. They've told me before that I'm lucky they let me live in the house as a guest. Which, I don't like the implications of.
I applied to Folx and Plume but I'm still waiting to hear back. The length of time feels like I definitely got passed up even with having experience in a clinical setting. My boyfriend says to have hope and that I might still hear back but its... hard. I feel urgent.
I just don't know what to do with myself? I regret not having more balls in highschool and applying to university. I didn't have faith in my grades and in my IQ to apply for scholarships or schools. I wish I had. I'm glad I went and got work experience but it seems like its doing nothing for me. I'm coming to a cusp of having to apply to a technical program. I'm scratching and clawing to find any excuse not to fall down the clinical pipeline and wind up hating my life in two years. I don't want to waste my life anymore than I already have but it feels too late.
Just... frustrated and upset. Wish I was more brave. Wish I had options to get myself out of this rut.

2023.06.06 04:30 tinkerbell158 Feeling lost and demotivated

I know these types of posts must be fairly frequent but hear me out. I am a 7 years experienced android dev joined a company 9-10 months back.. The pay is good but I feel like they were not 100% honest about the kind of things I would work on when I was hired. The rest of the team assists the main team in the US with backend work which seems to be just setting configuration or fine tuning parameters from the looks of it. I am the newest and most experienced person out of my team. It feels like there is not much growth for me.I am not the go to person when the team is concerned as I am new and do not work on the main part of the system. I have spoken to my manager and they are of the opinion that I should also start contributing to backend but that is not really my interest area. I am contemplating whether to look for better jobs aligned to my skills or keep my head down and start asking my manager to involve me in backend tasks from now. I know that the job market is not good right now so I am afraid to interview as well. Please give me some advice on what steps can I take. I feel lost in what to learn next and gain more knowledge to be looked at as a senior. Is being an android dev and a senior not worth it anymore?

2023.06.06 04:29 woongz DANB RHS exam

i’ve just started out as an assistant with no prior experience or knowledge whatsoever and i have to take the DANB RHS exam soon. i’ve worked at the office for a bit so i know basic stuff from learning on the job and i’ve taken panos, helped with PA and BWs. I’ve just been looking up the things listed on the provided exam outline but it’s hard to determine what specific information about each thing i need to know
should i just spend the extra $170 on the DALE foundation review course and practice test or are there any other good ways i could prepare without having to pay more than i already have for the initial exam fee? i would also be very grateful if you could share any good quizlets, old study guides, pdfs or anything that could be of help 🫶 i was not a very good test taker in college so this is stressing me out a bit 🥲

2023.06.06 04:28 AeneasDid911 Lost, out of options.

I'm writing this post with a heavy heart and a great deal of trepidation, but I find myself in an extremely difficult situation and I'm reaching out to this incredible community for support. I never thought I would have to ask for financial assistance, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
Over the past few months, my life has taken a devastating turn. A series of unfortunate events, including unexpected medical bills and the loss of my job, has left me struggling to make ends meet. Despite my best efforts to find new employment, the job market in my area has been unforgiving, and I have been unable to secure a stable source of income.
As a result, my savings have been depleted, and I'm now facing mounting debts, eviction notices, and an uncertain future. The weight of the financial burden is becoming unbearable, and I'm left feeling helpless and overwhelmed.
I'm not asking for a handout or a solution to all my problems. Rather, I'm humbly requesting any assistance that you can offer to help me get back on my feet. Even the smallest contribution can make a significant difference and provide a glimmer of hope in this dark time.
If you're wondering how your support could make a difference, here are some ways it would help me:
Basic Necessities: I'm struggling to afford groceries, utilities, and other essential items. Your contribution could help me meet these basic needs and prevent me from going hungry or being without electricity.
Housing Stability: The fear of eviction is constantly looming over me. Your help could provide me with the means to pay my rent and prevent me from losing my home. I'm determined to get back on my feet, but stability is crucial for me to regain my footing.
Job Search Assistance: I'm actively looking for employment, and any financial support would allow me to access resources such as internet access, transportation, and interview attire. These are all critical factors in my pursuit of a new job opportunity.
I understand that times are tough for many people, and there are countless others who may be in a similar or worse situation. If you're unable to contribute monetarily, I completely understand. Your kind words, advice, or even sharing my post with others who may be able to help would be immensely appreciated.
For those who can offer financial assistance, I promise to pay it forward when I am able. I'm determined to overcome this difficult period in my life and help others who may find themselves in a similar position.
If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to reach out to me. I'm an open book and willing to provide any necessary verification or details to give you peace of mind about the authenticity of my situation.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read my plea. I'm truly grateful for this supportive community and any help you can provide. May kindness and compassion guide us all through life's challenges.

2023.06.06 04:28 meltingsnow265 idk how to salvage freshman summer and would appreciate ideas

I know it's not the end of the world to not have any internships or stuff going on over the summer especially after freshman year, but every single college freshman I know, both from my college and people I knew from high school, have huge internships/reus/nonprofits/things going on. my college is also kind of competitive so it kind of makes sense but it's a lot more than I thought it would be :( I didn't apply to nearly enough stuff over the year and I was kind of burnt out/assumed I wouldn't get into anything, but now I'm just panicking that I'm behind and I don't know what I should do to try to salvage this summer. I had a small summer research job on campus planned but due to other circumstances the person renting to me couldn't rent it anymore so I can't do that either :(. I'm an applied math/computer engineering major for reference, and I'm just so neurotic and panicking right now and I feel nauseous just sitting at home doing nothing and I'm just so mad at myself for not trying harder over the year and pushing myself to just apply for more things and this is becoming a rant/vent now :( idk i'm partially just exhausted and partially just extremely anxious that I'm falling behind everyone and I want to find something I can do to feel a little bit on top of things??? idk anymore

tl;dr i didn't try hard enough to find things to do over the year and now I'm going through a neurotic episode bc of it and any advice/ideas for things to do to feel less useless would be appreciated

2023.06.06 04:24 ocean-cowboy I thought my ED was in remission (basically gone), but then I started working in food service. Help.

As the title said, I thought my ED was in remission when I came home for the summer from college, and then I got a job at a fast food chain where I'm surrounded by it my entire shift. Being forced to be surrounded by food that I am not allowed to eat has translated to my home and social life making it difficult to eat at all. I have major anxiety now going to my shifts because I'm scared of making it worse for myself.
I'm scheduled for 5 more shifts this week (weeks starting Monday, ending Sunday btw) - and I genuinely don't think I will be able to tolerate it. How can I quit without a two-weeks notice, if at all? What do I tell my boss (who I've only met once tbh)? I also don't want to share personal medical information but I feel like I will have to in order to be taken serioiusly, and it is making me nervous. Any tips on what to say or do in this situation? Tips on making the food at work less triggering?

2023.06.06 04:18 makemeadilf 42 [M4F] #Washington State. If you look cute in a skirt, click me!

Hi! So I’ll try to be as clear as possible about what I’m looking for. I’ve taken a minute off of dating completely and I have a really good idea of what I’m looking for in a relationship.
First, if you’re just looking for a text buddy or something “online”, I’m not for you. I’m open to meeting someone from anywhere, as I realize what I’m looking for might not be right down the street. But I’m not looking for months of endless texting. I’m looking for something real. Distance isn’t an issue, I literally solve problems for a job, but if you’re not open to living in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest I’m probably not for you. I moved here a few years ago and I’m absolutely in love with it.
Anyway, about me. I guess in a nutshell I’m the most athletic nerd you’ll ever meet. I’m 5’8”, brown hair and green eyes. I play and coach soccer. I’m out on my mountain bike as often as possible. I love books, video games, crosswords, medical journals, and my dog and cat. I have a happy, chill little life that I love. After taking a minute away from dating I’ve decided I should probably make room for the right person. I’m not looking for a girl. I’m looking for “the” girl. Also no one thinks I’m 42. Most people guess early 30s and are shocked to find out my actual age.
About you: Small to medium sized. Cute. Sweetheart. AFFECTIONATE. Not constantly depressed. Loves animals. Wants something serious/long term. Funny is a bonus. Clingy is fine, as I keep my close friends circle pretty small.
Sexually: I’m pretty (very) Dom. So please at least lean submissive if not full blown. I don’t want to punch you in the face or anything, but choking, light slapping, and a good girl that gets hot being told what to do and loves getting praise for it is insanely attractive. I love affection. Kissing, touching, contact. Please LOVE having a guy go down on you. Please love holding hands in public. There is nothing hotter than a girl who acts like she knows who she belongs to.
Annnnnyway, if I sound like your type send me a message. I have some NSFW stuff on my profile if you’re curious. 🙂. Talk to you soon!

2023.06.06 04:17 katisright Moving to Calgary from Aus

Hello hello,
I am currently contemplating a move to Calgary from Aus on a working holiday (with the hopes of relocating permanently).
I work as a criminal lawyer in Aus at the moment. I intend on working while I also study to transfer my solicitor accreditation over to Canada. Could anyone in the criminal law field or legal field in general give me some insight on the job market? Would be looking at perhaps working as a legal assistant or paralegal while I study for NCAs - not too fussed on where (I.e. community legal centre, legal aid or private). Have not been able to confirm this with research so far but I presume I may have difficulties or be precluded from working any type of government job on a WHV?
Thank you so much for any reccos or advice!

2023.06.06 04:17 Ok_Mycologist_1938 Trying to Rebuild Trust

Hey all,

I've created a throwaway for this, but recently I have had some issues in my relationship and I am hoping that this community may be able to offer some advice. I'm not extremely familiar with the subreddit, so please feel free to pull this if any rules have been violated or to direct me to a better place to post. However, in the little time that I have lurked, I have found this subreddit to be populated by generous people who all seem to give reasonable advice. Due to the particulars of my situation, I think this may be the appropriate place to post and I would greatly appreciate any advice from more experienced members of this community. It's a bit of a long story, so thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

My fiance and I have been together for over five years. Altogether, we have a wonderful relationship. She is an absolute darling and I cannot imagine another person better suited for me. I believe she feels the same. We are recently engaged and I am overjoyed to be spending the rest of my life with her.

Throughout the course of our relationship we have had a policy of nonmonogamy. We both love each other greatly, but also understand that novelty and new experiences are attractive. Neither of us wants to feel betrayed by a natural urge to seek out someone else for a night or two. While we talk about this frequently, neither of us had found much cause to seek outside relationships. I have asked her to always tell me if she does find someone else she is interested in or chooses to sleep with, I feel as though openness is one of the only things that can sustain an open relationship, and I don't want to allow suspicion or resentment to corrupt our love.

In the past, when we first started dating, she had a few flings with some other men. The first she didn't tell me about until I confronted her with clear evidence. Following that discussion, she reaffirmed her intention to tell me if anything were to happen, so that suspcion does not take root.

I travel a lot and my last job had me out on a boat for three months. The conditions for both of us were not ideal, we both have a history of depression and both of us were experiencing a degree of it while we were separated. I was not able to give her the support she needed and I believe she may feel that she was somehow lacking in her support of me. Given the circumstances of the job and the grinding and unpleasant nature of those three months, I do not believe that she is at fault at all in this.

However, near the end of the contract, she told me that she had slept with a guy. My initial reaction was poor. I had hoped that there was an understanding that, even if we espoused nonmonogamy, we would see fit to remain monogamous while the other was away. I had turned down advances in the past over concern that she might feel jealous or insecure. Now, on reflection, I realize that that was an unfair assumption to make. If anything good has come out of this situation so far, it is the realization that we can continue this relationship, and practice nonmonogamy, without the need for jealousy. While my initial reaction was one of anger and insecurity, all born from jealousy and longing, I no longer feel that way. We were able to discuss the situation and I am very comfortable with the possibility of her sleeping with other people and with the fact that she has slept with this individual while I was out of town. In fact, I feel a degree of security in it, knowing that this will not destroy the relationship, that jealousy fades and does not need to come up again, and knowing that I am free to make advances and take up other advances without fear of harming my fiance.

I had asked her to, for the duration of the rest of my contract, refrain from sleeping with anyone else. I was feeling very insecure and wanted to be able to simply cap this episode until we had time to see each other and work through it. She agreed and, while I had suspicions, I believed her. Since I have been home she has told me that she had slept with a few others before this individual, people she had neglected to tell me about at the time, and that she had also continued to see this individual for a period of about a month after our initial discussion, all while assuring me that she was not. She had, one night soon after our first conversation, gone out drinking and later met up with this guy. When I had tried to call her that evening, we talked every evening, she had ignored the phone calls and turned off her phone. I was at a loss, stuck on a boat, and frantic. I thought she was dead on the side of the road, arrested for DUI, or seeing another person and cutting me out. Eventually, the next morning, I did speak to her. She lied, said that she had simply forgot to charge her phone.

That night sticks with me, it may seem hard to believe, but it is almost certainly the worst I have felt within our entire relationship. Eventually, when I was back home and believed we were being open and honest with each other, I asked her directly if she had been with another man that evening. She lied to me a few times, and then eventully told me the truth. Later that night she told me about the other people she had slept with while I was gone. I appreciate that she is being honest now, it's not something she had to come forward with, but I am extremely hurt by her lies of omission and commission.

I had been open and honest with my fiance throughout this period. I had poured my heart out and had been lied to about things we had promised to tell each other. I feel as though she has cheated on me, I feel betrayed and suspicious. I am not accustomed to feeling anger or insecurity with her, but I have been intermittently dominated by these emotions since this has begun to come out. She has promised to be honest in the future, and promised to be honest about anything that may have happened in the past, but I find it extremely hard to accept that. I often feel compelled to ask her if there is anything she is not telling me, or to ask her to talk with me about these previous episodes. My intention is not to bring up things that may hurt her, but I feel that the only way I will be able to accept and move through this period, to trust her again, is to be able to approach this from a position of complete and open honesty.

She has expressed many times that she is being honest. She has also expressed that she wishes we could just move on. This is the reason she has given for withholding information once I was back in town, and for not wanting to speak about this at any depth. There is nothing I want more than to move past this, but there are times when I cannot lay next to her without betrayal and anger boiling in me, when I cannot help but bring this up again and try to lay the details bare. I am afraid that I will push her away, or reinforce her sense that by being honest she is making me unhappy and harming our relationship. I do not want her to feel as though I am asking her not to sleep with anyone else, or to have to hide any relationships she does have. In order to bring closure I need to believe she is being honest and forthcoming, but I'm afraid my insistence upon this will drive her to dishonesty and widen the rift between us.

This woman is my world. I do not want to harm our relationship, and so I'm writing this post to seek help and advice from this community. I don't have friends who I would be able to discuss something like this with, I don't believe the conventional wisdom that someone cheating ought to end a relationship. However, I also feel torn and hurt and don't know how to digest and move past this. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I cannot imagine allowing this to open a rift between us, but I also cannot bring myself to live in suspicion or insecurity.

I greatly appreciate all those who will take the time to read this, and I look forward to hearing from people who may have worked through a similar situation before or have any advice that they can offer. Thank you for your time and help.

2023.06.06 04:17 CertainlyHamStick How to call the store asking about the status for working in OGP without sounding like a dick?

I applied a few weeks ago to a Walmart near me and haven't heard back yet. No call or email, so idk. I really wanna work at Walmart again because the pay is decently better than other retail around me.
Idk who exactly to call in the store and what to say. I don't want to act entitled and say something like "hey, give me this job". Any tips would be appreciated. It's not the same walmart as last year so idk if that matters

2023.06.06 04:15 Consistent_Parking63 something important happened today

A few hours ago, my Dad took me to get a couple burgers and as he was taking me home, there was a homeless man standing in the exact spot I held a sign for a sign holding job a long time ago. The homeless man was holding a sign that said 'need food' and my dad's car was sitting near him for a good 75-90 seconds and I was so selfish that I did not give him one of the burgers when I had two. When the light turned green and we drove off, he looked at me and I looked at him and gave him a half smile but a fake smile. I did not think about him until 30 minutes ago. I thought, how selfish and ungodly of me, seriously. I was homeless from 2013-2016 and even though I am thinking about how nobody did anything for me when I was homeless except at the shelters where I got a bed and meals, I am really beating myself up over this man. That was clearly a sign from God. Hitting me right in the face. I need to do better for others. There are homeless people everywhere in my area and it has been well over a year since I handed someone a few bucks. A prayer for that man is pointless, he needed a burger.

2023.06.06 04:10 Wififish05 I had a dream my dad murdered my entire family, but he is a good person

So last night I dreamt that my dad murdered my entire family, and I had to hide with my grandparents to stay safe. My granddad then nearly killed my dad, but my dad was trying to get to my cat (who is deceased in real life) to kill her. I told my granddad to not let him touch her, so he finished the job. Then out of no where my granddad picked up my cat and started torturing and killing her. By the end of it I said, just kill me, and he sent the knife through my stomach and I woke up.
I often have horrendous dreams/nightmares, but this one just didn’t make any sense. I trust my dad with my life, he cares for me so much. I have issues with my mum but he is always there to support me. My parents are married and there’s conflict but they get along when I’m not present. This dream is really confusing for me. Maybe my dad was protecting me in my dream, because he didn’t kill me?
What does all this mean?

2023.06.06 04:09 kmtwb I was tormented by a spirit during my first 2 years at University

In 2020, I moved over 6 hours away from my hometown in Southern Ontario to attend University up north. I moved into my down with my best friend from high school whom I had known for years. In this building, it is important to note that it has been around since the school was first built however it is frequently renovated and worked on because it more often than normal, catches fire (more details later).
So, to set the scene: it's 2020, mid-pandemic and I had just been discharged from the army. My best friend and I had applied for the same university major and had decided that if we got in that we would live together. Well, sure enough, we got in and the only dorm that could accommodate our room request (i.e. moving into the same apartment with separate bedrooms) was situated directly across from a hospice. and for those that don't know a hospice is a medical facility where people go when they are close to death to live out the end of their lives in as much comfort as possible. This hospice was the only view out of our small windows and was the only one in our area.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, the building frequently caught fire, but what was odd and worth mentioning about it, was that it only caught fire in apartment #5 on any given floor. My best friend and I lived on the 5th floor in the 5th apartment for 2 years even throughout the summer and fortunately, we never had a fire, but frequently found ourselves having to accommodate firefighters and other workers entering our rooms due to the smoke and water damage from various different fires from random floors directly above us. Along with my BFF, I had two other roommates who were very vocal about when they were home or not (we had a group chat), and for all these experiences they were never home. or even in the city for that matter. My BFF and I both got jobs working at a Lvl 1 Trauma Center as nightshift security and thus paranormal stuff didn't scare us as we frequently were forced to work in the morgue and even witness people die on a daily basis, with whole bunch of other things happening (maybe stories for another time).
The main experience that happened early on was when my BFF and I both awoke to hear someone going through our cupboards and garbage in the kitchen, which was right against my bedroom wall, thus making it super loud. it was about 1pm and because we were on night shift, it was our version of 1am. So, thinking my best friend had gotten up oddly early I went to talk to her, but when I opened my door there was no one. I woke her up quietly and we searched the entire apartment and hallways with whatever we could use as weapons. There was no one but everything was open, our fridge, the oven, drawers, and cabinets. As well, our garbage had been thrown across the room. All the breakers in our apartment had been switched off as well, which we didn't discover at first. It is important to mention that the only entry into our apartment, that being the front door, automatically locked when closed so it was most definitely locked 24/7. I called building security and no one had been seen on camera entering our dorm except for my BFF and me around 8am after we had gotten off work at the hospital. there was no explanation for who had done this but still, they took our statements and said they'd do patrols, they never found more information.
Over 3 months later, it was summer and my BFF and I had been 2 of 11 people left in the building over the summer, with the rest being mostly just international students who could afford to do quarantine protocols again in September as it took 2 weeks. We were the only ones on our floor but regularly heard stomping outside in the hall but neither of us never saw anyone through our peephole or even when we often heard knocks on the front door, however when we checked, no one every time. So aside from the knocking and stomping, super quiet summer except for one morning. I'll never forget it it shook us to the bone.
It was 10am and my roommate and I were asleep after work. I never locked my bedroom door as my bff loved to come in and hang all the time but for some reason, I locked it that entire week. and good thing too because I awoke to frantic and I mean FRANTIC knocking- no pounding on my bedroom door. I was obviously super disoriented as I had just finished a 12 hour shift a few hours earlier, but I saw two dark shadows under the door resembling feet. I figured my bff needed something and woke up but I called out before getting up because I was annoyed to be awake this early. The feet stayed unmoving but the knocking stopped. with a heavy sigh, I got up threw on a sweater and checked the time (it was around 10am), and went to open the door, with the shadows still there I assumed it was my bff. When I put my hand on the handle to unlock it, I heard a thud, and then, worried if my bff had fallen, I threw the door open to see my front door closing as if someone was just leaving. I ran over and saw a completely black figure turn the corner. I followed (my security guard instincts kicking in) but when I turned the corner, nothing. I went back and my roommate asked why I was knocking on the walls like that, she heard it from inside my room on an adjoining shared wall to both our bedrooms. we again called security but only I was seen chasing after nothing on the cameras. After my boyfriend, a firefighter started sleeping over frequently because were both spooked, the fires stopped, and most other things did too. We never had another incident on this level. We moved out after 2 years there and beyond hearing the usual bang, no other issues.
edit: also important detail I forgot to add is that we had an anti-break-in security stick against our front door while we slept, and they were conveniently moved into the living room or against the wall after these events. we also tested the stick to see if it actually worked and trust me even my firefighter boyfriend and his bff couldn't force their way in

2023.06.06 04:07 Remarkable_Bake_7325 Advice

I’ve been struggling with anxiety/ocd for a very long time. I’m a college student so I am home from school for the summer and my mental health has been horrible since my “normal” routine is nonexistent. I’ve been trying to get a job and work out to create a schedule but I am still extremely anxious. I’ve been off and on medication for years. I’ve only ever been on Zoloft but when I was on it, it completely destroyed my sex drive which totally sucked plus some of my ocd is based on ROCD (relationship ocd) Since my sex drive would go down when I was on medication, my brain would try to convince me that I wasn’t attracted to my partner, that I was asexual, that something was wrong with me etc. I’m wondering if anyone has any advice on where I should go from here. My doctor said I could try other medication that might not interfere with my sex drive but I don’t really want to go through the process of waiting 6 weeks and possibly not getting the results I want.
