2023.05.30 22:53 owhrhxjathrowaway Constant recurrent strep in urine culture HELP

22yo F. Have been treated a total of 3 times for this now. Augmentin, Penicillin VK, last course was Keflex 500 mg BID for 5 days I finished it yesterday. This has been over the course of 3 months at this point. I'm still having symptoms.
Symptoms: mild discomfort in my urethra, no pelvic pain. Just constant mild discomfort like I have to pee all the time. No pain when urinating.
I have always been extremely sensitive to UTIs, and they always got very severe very fast, typically urinating blood the next day.
This one hasn't really gotten worse, I'd say now the discomfort is worsening maybe 2/10.
They (prescribers) keep telling me my colonization rate is so low they don't usually even treat for it, but they're treating mine due to symptoms.
I'm going back to the urgent care in an hour and I'm going beg them for a long course of Cipro or whatever you all suggest that has helped you but the beta-lactams and cephalosporins are not working. They're just making me antibiotic resistant.
I am certain I caught this from sex with a not very hygenic male, I know exactly from who and when this occured. I haven't had sex since.
What antibiotic will help and have you ever dealt with this issue?

2023.05.30 22:53 wholalune In shock (TW: details abuse) ((Long post))

I don't know what to do or know why I won't just leave. I have a car, a good job/finances, and alternative housing immediately available.
I know I'm in a toxic relationship. I hate admitting it, but it is definitely abusive too. I am not sure if it is mutually abusive or if I am just a victim.
I started dating this person a year ago. It's been a rollercoaster from the beginning. We both have extensive childhood trauma. I have done over a decade of therapy for mine. When we met, they had been in therapy for a year. I have been very aware of how my actions in relationships were unhealthy and abusive. I know I have complex PTSD but I never used that as an excuse for my behavior. I know things I've said to past partners were absolutely uncalled for and traumatizing. It's been over 5 years since I have lashed out at someone in an emotionally/psychologically abusive way. I have never spoken to or lashed out at my current partner in the ways I have in the past. What I have done is be paranoid but not in an accusing way. I have not accused my partner of cheating or talking to others; but I have asked them about it. I have never told my partner they couldn't talk to or see anyone. I have been curious about their life and, depending on the situation, have asked whether they were interested in someone as more than friends. They consider my questions as paranoia and controlling.
Background: when we started dating they made it clear that they were going to want to fuck other people eventually. They lied to me by omission about sleeping with someone and then slept with me the same day (which really pissed me off). After that incident, I realized I would have to ask very specific and direct questions. At this point, they have told me multiple times that they don't want to fuck around and they only want me but it's been hard for me to truly believe them.
Other background info: This person is really sick, physically. They have a chronic debilitating condition that is preventing them from working right now. Their parents take care of them financially. A couple of months after we started dating they contracted HSV1 from me (which I was open about having the whole time) and because of their underlying health condition, the HSV almost killed them. It was incredibly traumatizing. They were home-bound for over a month and I was their caregiver. They continue to have problems with it but not nearly as horrible as then.
Their behavior: They have always had difficulty letting me leave when I wanted to go home. It was endearing at first. I liked that they wanted to keep me around so much. I liked the attention and extra love they gave me when they were asking me to stay. The extra attention turned into them becoming upset if I persisted in trying to leave. They would get very pouty, say "no" and bump into me in a way I now consider a push/shove. Other things they did/do that caught my attention but brushed off are teasing me a lot and even though I've complained, they continue to say "it was just a joke, lighten up", and get mad at me for not being cheerful around their friends all the time. They also grab me hard around the arms and neck to pull me in certain directions. If I'm upset and being loud/talking fast they cover my mouth. They insist I be around them all the time when we are together, including when they are showering. If i'm showering they are free to do whatever they want, but if they are they continually ask me to be in the bathroom with them and get upset if I attempt not to be. They ask me specific questions about my conversations with my friends/what i've talked about in therapy; basically, they want a lot of details about my life but if I ask about theirs they might accuse me of being paranoid and controlling. Also, they blow up my phone if I am not responding to them when we are in conflict and away from each other and they have come to my house when i didn't respond.
Their behavior has become increasingly violent. I stopped excusing it and started pointing it out to them. They always denied it at first, which just led to us arguing about it. When we are in conflict I just want to get away. I do have a hard time saying something like "I'm leaving, i'll be back at X time" and instead I am frantically packing my things and just trying to leave, which they say triggers their behavior. They refuse to let me leave though. They physically stop me, they have taken my keys, they have thrown my stuff around many times, and the pushing has gotten a lot worse.
Where we are now: I have begun fighting back and it is a lot worse now. I have lost it. A month ago, they chased me down in a parking lot and shoved me against a store wall demanding I fix things immediately (this conflict started because I didn't support them enough when they were upset at another driver). When we got back to their place, they pushed me against the corner of a closet and I got a huge bruise on my ass. This bruise is what finally opened my eyes to how bad things are getting. They have thrown me on the bed by my neck, which they still deny. Out of anger at being denied so much (after the second incident of this) I showed them what they did to me by doing the same thing and now if I ever bring it up they say, "yeah, well you did the same thing to me". In the past month they have moved to another apartment. Now they live alone. We have not been able to go a week without a physical altercation. After the incident that resulted in a bruised ass, I confided in a friend about some of their behavior. I also recorded some of the moments they were yelling at me.
This past weekend we really fought. There was a fight earlier in the week, which included them refusing to let me leave, throwing my stuff on the ground and backing me into the fridge. I fell to the ground as well and was crawling away. They grabbed my shirt, pulling me back (choking me) and wrapped their arm around my neck to pull me off the ground. I got a scratch on my neck from this and some other bruises/scratches on my arm. Some days later we fought again and I don't remember what happened but I ended up telling them that I told my friend they have been pushing me around. This really upset them and they started saying I couldn't hang out with her the following day or go to her birthday party since now they couldn't go. I explained to them how hurtful and telling it was that they were more concerned about my friend knowing than how their actual behavior is affecting me (the person they say they love more than anyone). The next day they were super sweet and apologetic (they always are afterward, which I'm wondering if i'm addicted to this part), and wrote me a letter apologizing for lots of things. I read the letter Friday night. Saturday morning I woke up and snuggled them in bed for an hour before waking them up. I had my party to go to but was still trying to spend time with them by getting breakfast together. I had to wake them up for the timing to work out. Shortly after waking up they made a joke about how they didn't invite this one person out last night when they were with their friends (this is in reference to a previous conflict we had because at one point I wasn't allowed to hang out with their friends because I'm moody and I found out this other girl met up with them and they had been messaging through disappearing messages, so of course I had feelings about this). My response was, "well I hope you didn't secretly invite anyone else out" and they turned over and got pouty and all of a sudden I was the bad person and I was in a bad mood upon waking up. They ended up taking a shower and having a mental breakdown, screaming and what not. I was confused and angry. Really angry that they accused me of being in a bad mood when I had just been cuddling them for an hour trying to gently wake them. So I was unavailable to ease their emotional distress. At some point, they got out of the shower and I am over everything. I shoved them out of my way and they fell pretty hard and from there it's "look at what you did". They start acting completely different, talking in a small voice and saying things like "i'll do whatever you want, it's going to be okay." It was a trauma response. Seemed like they age regressed. And while I have sympathy and remorse, It made me angry that they were responding to me like this since I have been putting up with them shoving me and more for the past year. I am not sure what happened next but we kept fighting and then trying to de-escalate over and over again. At one point I made the remark, "yeah well I have plenty of recordings of you" and this is where things became very scary. They lost it and we fought fought over my phone. They were fighting me and trying to prevent me from leaving the room. They kept saying, "what kind of person would record another person" and forcing me to give them my phone passcode. At some point I bit them because they had their hands around me and they bit me back so hard I have a massive bruise because of it. They pulled out chunks of my hair. We both body slammed each other onto the bed/ground multiple times. I had my arm pressed against their neck at some point too when they were wrestling me. They choked me with their hands wrapped around my neck to the point I couldn't breathe. At some point they pinned me down and sat on me and refused to get up until they could access my phone again (it got locked because they were trying to get in it). I was defeated. After they erased all the evidence I had of them I decided I was going to look at their phone. They flipped their shit on me again and we started fighting more. At this point I was certain they were hiding something because of how violent they were being and not allowing me access their phone. They ended up slapping me after throwing me down onto the bathroom floor. Turns out they didn't want me to access their phone cuz they recorded me arguing with them after I shoved them that morning - literally the worst fight of my life began by them demanding i give them my phone and them making me feel like I was the worst for recording them when they did the same exact thing. They then went on to self-harm, and I insisted they go to the party with me becuase I was scared of what they would do to themselves.
I can count over 10 bruises/scratches from the past couple weeks of fighting. My partner has one bruise from when I shoved them Saturday morning. I do not want to minimize my violence towards them. I am just incredibly upset about how they are reacting about the bruise I gave them. When I bring up the marks they left on my body they usually respond with a sorry, but also with an "you bruise like a banana. And I'm not like one of those people who beats the shit out of their wives.", which i feel like dismisses my experience and pain.
OMG this was long, and it still doesn't convey everything. I am at work now and in shock. Been having panic attacks all day. I don't know what to do, and I am really confused about why I am staying in this relationship.

What antibiotic will help and have you ever dealt with this issue?
Unrelated (most likely): this male started getting heart palpitations shortly after sleeping with me. I did a few weeks after i have never had them. While I was on the Keflex the palpitations were completely gone on the last day. I've had a couple today. I know it's a wild theory to think the antibiotics are curing my heart palpitations because if the strep got lodged in my heart or was that systemic I'd have sepsis, but it is an odd correlation.

Communication issues!!

Communication Is Dependent On Devices

There is a world where people are dependent on various devices. And the devices that help them get information or advice or time pass. And these devices have become a substitute for real communication.

Communication Is An Outflow. You Release Energy When You Talk

And as a result, people are forgetting how to communicate with each other. And believe it or not, it has become a problem and the problem is increasing, though people are in groups sitting with each other being with each other, somehow they do not even know how to start the conversation, carry on the conversation, or how to end a conversation and they’re sitting quietly next to each other, not sharing or talking to each other, whichever way they come, they go.

It Is More Common For People To Misunderstand Each Other Than To Feel Understood
It is something that should be urgently handled or taken care of because communication is an outflow, you flow out energy when you talk and very normal simple communication is more effective than full of big words or expressions or heavy mannerisms.
I work with people and most of the time I have seen that the simplicity of communication has gone out and as a result, the more prevalent feeling is that they are misunderstood rather than feeling that they are being understood. It is a problem that needs to be addressed.

It Is Important To Find An Effective Method Of Handling Or Winning Over The Communication Process.
So, I decided to work on it. I have been delivering courses in communication for years now, and I have done my own research on what are the fine prints of communication which can be missing, and as a result, the whole conversation or the relationship has gone out of the window. And it is no fun. It’s no fun having friends. It’s no fun talking to the family because the basics of communication are somehow out. So, this is going to be our next series, where we will be talking, discussing more and more about communication, and trying to find a workable way to handle or win over the process of communication.

2023.05.30 22:44 arcticbasket Will the use of weed make me ineligible for U.S Citizenship? Do they even check past medical records?

For context, I'm (18) a college student. I moved to the U.S. with my mom 4 years ago after receiving permanent residence status (commonly known as having a green card). Later this year, my mom and I can and will apply for citizenship separately because I'm of legal age now. I'm not very knowledgeable in immigration law and the internet hasn't been really helpful with this.
I don't have anything in my criminal records. Both my mom and I are perfectly 'good and moral' citizens, as the USCIS calls it. However, last month I sprained my knee which forced me to go to urgent care; the lady asked me if I smoked weed, to which I (very stupidly) said yes because at the moment I was in a lot of pain and I didn't even think of lying to my doctors about anything concerning my health.
I live in a state where weed is legal only over 21+. I did not purchase it from a dispensary and there is no proof of anything like that except my medical record. Again, I'm a college student and I know the consumption is fairly common. It is not a big deal at a state level and I know it is generally ignored at a federal level as well, as several states have legalized its use. But I'm aware that it is a federal offense, which is what concerns immigration affairs.

I've never been stopped or legally charged for anything. Are they allowed to look at my confidential medical records, outside of the immigration medical examination? Is this likely to cause me much trouble?

Edit: Just for the record, I will ask an immigration lawyer about this eventually when it is time to start the naturalization process; just wanna get some insight from people with a little more substance law and immigration knowledge than me.

2023.05.30 22:41 2006bruin Just found out my boyfriend of 4 years has been cheating for 6 months

I am NOT OP. Original post by u/WhiskeyGinger99 in TrueOffMyChest and relationship_advice
trigger warnings: infidelity, emotional abuse, potential animal abuse
mood spoilers: hopeful

Note: OOP posted twice the first day, once in relationship_advice and once in TrueOffMyChest. The update was posted in TrueOffMyChest

Post #1, in relationship_advice:
My(24f) boyfriend (24m) of 4 years has been cheating for 6 months. - May 14, 2023
So I'm on mobile and this is all very fresh so I apologize for any spelling errors or formatting issues.
Basically what the title says. I woke up yesterday to a text from the other woman (she found my facebook) telling me everything. She didn't know I even existed, but as soon as she learned he had a girlfriend she came right to me. I was just fucking sick, I kept telling myself this couldn't be real. That my baby wouldn't do this to me, that he loves me. But it was all true. She showed me the evidence and when I confronted him he didn't even try to deny it. Just made some lame ass excuses like "I was depressed" and "We had common interests".
This piece of shit laid in bed next to me every night, reassuring me that I was loved and he wouldn't ever hurt me. I've been so insecure for weeks now that something was gonna happen, that things in my life never stay good this long. Well, I was sure as shit right. He was doing us both in the same day just to try to keep up his lies. Now both the other woman and I have to get STD tests cause I don't believe him when he says we were the only ones.
I don't know how to move on from this. I kicked him out and I won't be taking him back, but how do I ever learn to trust again? He was my entire world, every aspect of my life is tainted by his memory. If someone who had dedicated himself to me for so long would do this, then how can I trust someone I just met?
I don't even have many guy friends cause he was too insecure, I had to be ultra modest and couldn't really hang out with guys. I don't even like the way I look anymore because all I see is how the other woman is prettier, skinnier, has a flat belly. Idk I'm just rambling at this point.
TL;DR My now ex boyfriend of 4 years was cheating on me for 6 months before he got caught. How can I even start to heal from this?

Post #2, same day, in TrueOffMyChest:
Just found out my boyfriend of 4 years has been cheating on me for 6 months - May 14, 2023
I am pissed to say the least. Also on mobile, sorry for any spelling errors or formatting issues.
But yeah 4 years, an entire life built together, just gone like that because he had to get his dick wet. He didn't even have a good excuse just "I'm depressed" and "We had common interests". Its honestly pathetic, I can't believe I loved this man. He had everyone fooled about what kind of vile trash he actually is. Now I have to get all his shit out of my house, find a new job since he convinced me to quit mine, and start over. I'm just so numb, it doesn't feel real yet. Honestly all cheaters deserve every kind of hell that comes their way. Grow a pair and just be honest. Don't traumatize someone the way he did me. Because now I have to figure out how to trust someone all over again.
I guess jokes on him though, both the side piece and I agree that he sucks in bed lol.
Edit: The other woman is the one who told me btw. She is actually very sweet and I believe her when she says she didn't know about me. Tbh I think she hates him more than I do.

Update post in TrueOffMyChest:
Update: I just found out my boyfriend of 4 years has been cheating for 6 months - May 23, 2023
First of all I just want to say thank you for all the love and support I received in the comments. All the amazing comments really helped me with knowing I made the right choice. Its been a little over a week now since I kicked him out now and I have some new updates.
My ex and his mother came to pick up his stuff the day after while I was with my own mom. I still feel awful that his mom had to spend mother's day moving all his crap out of my house. Since then all communication has been through her. She's come over a few times to grab things he left, and we've had a good time just talking. We were always close and she is 100% on my side in this. Honestly I think she is angrier at her son than I am.
As for me, well, I'm doing really really good. I just got a new job today, and I start on Thursday. Fingers crossed I'll be able to be completely independent of him in the next month. I've been slowly cleaning the house after he left it a disaster. His old office was the absolute worst, he just left piles of trash in the corner for me to deal with. I feel like I owe my trash guys some cookies or something for the amount of crap they hauled away.
But the biggest update of all is that I've started seeing someone new. My new boyfriend is so amazing, I can't believe he's real sometimes. We have been friends for almost a year now and he's been my biggest supporter through my breakup. There was some mutual attraction, but we kept our distance due to me being in a relationship. I didn't even intend to start dating again so soon, but I just fell head over heels for him. We're taking things slow right now, I still need to heal and he's perfectly fine with that. Although to be honest, it feels like the best revenge to be seeing a new guy who treats me like an absolute princess while having my ex still pay my bills.
I realize now just how abusive my ex was. I always told myself that because he never hit me and supported me through my mental health struggles that he couldn't be abusive. But the more distance I get, the more I wipe every trace of him from my home, the more I realize how much I lived in fear of him. I lied so much to the people I loved just so no one knew who he really was. If he was in a bad mood he would just pick at me and try to hurt me. I was his bangmaid, and nothing else. He spent all his time away from me, locked in his office. And I'm not the only one he treated badly. The change in my dog is absolutely insane, its like he's a new animal. I worry now what was really going on when I wasn't around. I never knew my dog was so playful, I always assumed he was just lazy. Turns out he loves to play and bark and just be a dog without a grown man screaming at him.
So yeah, life is going really well. I go to get the STD test done in an hour and a half, so I'll make a small update on this post when I get the results.
Edit: So I'm seeing a lot of people accusing me of having an emotional affair in the comments, which I totally understand given the information I provided. Firstly, he lives 11 hours away and we have never even met in person. When I say we had a thing for eachother, I don't mean we had feelings for eachother or even a crush. We both thought the other was good looking but drew a hard line when it came to flirting or anything like that. If we hung out in a voice channel it was only in a group, and our dms were exclusively asking if the other was joining the group for games. Something I still do to my other friends. I was admittedly checked out of my relationship for a while, but that was after the cheating started and he became distant. I worked a lot and really didn't do much else aside from play games online with friends like once a week. I totally understand if people still feel like I had an emotional affair, I just wanted to add some more context. Figured an edit would be easier than replying to individual comments.
Edit: Okay I'm sick of explaining this over and over. Whether you think I had an emotional affair or not is whatever. But I was not checked out of my relationship. I was actively trying to fix things with my now ex up until the moment I learned he fucked another woman. Do not try to sit here and tell me that my choice to start dating my friend is equal to the constant lies and gaslighting my ex put me through. This man sat there and held me while I cried about how scared I was to lose him. He told me over and over that he loved me, that I was just paranoid, that he would never cheat on me. He cared more about getting laid (and mind you we had a very active sex life) than he did about being faithful to someone he made a commitment to. How can you even think that me finding my friend's voice attractive, a friend mind you that I was never even alone with, is just as bad or the reason he cheated? True emotional affairs are awful, they're just as painful as cheating. I made sure every step of the way that I never crossed that line. I was respectful, I was loyal, and I never said anything that could even be registered as flirting until AFTER MY EX AND I BROKE UP. My ex was a horrible abusive piece of shit. There are holes in the walls of my home because of him. I get scared any time my dog bothers someone to play with him because I'm worried my pup is going to get yelled at. I spent 4 years on eggshells because of him. Don't fucking pity him or tell me that his cheating and abuse is my fault. I met my now boyfriend is August of 2022. I had been with my ex since December of 2018. So please, keep telling me that his behavior was because of a so called "emotional affair".
Edit: Clarified some statements that seemed to be confusing people.

Reminder - I am not the original poster.

2023.05.30 22:41 skitterybug My boyfriend is in the middle of a mental health crisis & his best friend wants me to be his mom.

As the title says, my boyfriend (Dave for this post) is in the middle of a mental health crisis. I live about an hour away from my boyfriend & we see each other every few weeks. He’s been doing poorly for a while but as his girlfriend I can only dispense advice, suggestions & be emotionally supportive.
When I brought my concerns to his best friend (Joe for this post), Joe said that Dave has a plan & we just have to get him to follow through. His suggestion was to basically be a parent instead of being his girlfriend. Joe is telling me I should be playing the roll of Mommy-girlfriend & or something to that effect. Joe told me I have to be on top of him as if I were a parent. Also says that I’m Dave’s gf & the fact that I live closer than Joe should make it my job. Is this sexist?
This feels so wrong on many levels. Joe has no experience with this type of mental health crises. I have been though it personally & I know that I’m not in any way equipped to give Dave the help he needs.
I told Joe I won’t be doing that. I will be filling in the roll of adult girlfriend. We will be getting Dave the professional health care that he needs.
Fuck you, Joe! You need to learn what a healthy relationship is.

2023.05.30 22:40 No-Light9581 GI stasis

I know this is long but if anyone can read and provide some insight or advice it would be so very appreciated.
My bunny, Jigglypuff, who is 2-3 years old, got GI stasis a month ago and has been perfectly fine since after a trip to the ER vet. They said his gut sounded and felt normal, but treated him anyways since he wasn’t eating.
Then, my other bunny, Venom, who is 7-8, got it yesterday. What’s odd is that Jigglypuff didn’t eat his veggies yesterday morning. However, he always follows Venom around, eats when she eats, etc. He was munching on hay and took a treat from me that morning, unlike Venom.
So, I take them both to the ER vet. Jigglypuff is fine, but Venom’s gut sounds slow so she got treated and was eating as soon as we got home.
This morning, their litter boxes were empty and full of poop. They both took a treat. I gave them their veggies and they both ran up to eat them but stopped shortly after once I entered their (temporary) pen to refill their hay. I didn’t have time to see if they would eat the rest before going to work, but I suspect/hope it was just because they’re scared of or mad at me for bringing them to the vet yesterday. It’s within their character to run away from me after I take them in.
I scheduled a visit with their exotic vet this weekend but I’m worried sick for what could happen in the meantime.
What are some potential causes? What should I expect during the vet visit? What can I do until this weekend to ensure they are in good health until their visit this weekend? I really don’t want to have to take either of them to the ER again this week.
I work 40 hours a week at an office and can’t be there to monitor them all the time. I also have a vacation planned in 2 weeks, which I planned prior to all of this, for just a weekend. I have a friend who’s going to come feed them and spend time with them, but she isn’t experienced with bunnies and I’m horrified that something bad will happen while I’m gone.
They eat about 2 cups of veggies and 1 small piece of fruit per day each, I fill their litter box with plenty of hay before and after work and before I go to bed, and give them about 1/2 a cup of pellets for both of them at night. They free roam and my apartment is 100% bunny proofed.
They’re both at a healthy weight and have both never had any issues at all up until this point.
I don’t brush them as often as I should because they hate it and run away from me every time I try to pick them up and I worry about causing them stress, but this is only thing I can think of that could have caused it in both of them near the same time. Perhaps they’ve consumed too much fur?
I guess I’ll see what the vet says, but if either ends up being seriously sick I don’t know how I’m going to nurse them back to health when I work a full time office job and I might even need to start working part time to help with expenses if they bc up needing longer term, intensive care. I don’t have anyone to help me.

2023.05.30 22:38 LPK94 Graduates working in the field, what would you suggest for a student who can’t realistically do an internship

Going to do my best to keep this as short as possible. I have a full time job in health care and am currently back in school in my second semester of CS as a transfer student. I truly do not think I have the option to pursue an internship for 2 major reasons:
  1. And probably about 90% of my concern. Leaving my job to pursue an internship is not feasible as my job provides me with all of my benefits (quite good ones that are difficult to walk away from) AND they are paying for my school with a tuition reimbursement program. After life expenses that we all gotta pay, I truly don’t think I could be back in school without my job paying for it (I think it’s important to mention that I absolutely live within my means)
  2. Going back to school after a years off, I transferred to a new university, and because I am a transfer student with a preexisting degree, I only have CS classes left to complete and only have 3 semesters left. I’m already a junior and have just the very basic fundamentals of Java and Python, nowhere near the knowledge to apply in a real world setting.
I am wondering what my options are here, has anyone had luck asking professors if research hours are possible or if there’s anything else I can do as volunteer work 1 or 2 days a week, or should I maybe keep doing what I’m currently doing and just building up my skills and create a portfolio. Thank you for any advice

2023.05.30 22:32 busyrabbithole What to expect for employment physical for PGY1? Is it still HIPAA protected?

Hello. I’m starting a PGY1 and have an appointment to do a physical at their employee health center. I never actually did this before. Usually I’d just get my own doctor to sign off for me. I guess I’m a little nervous bc I don’t like the idea of my “employer” having my health records. My specific worries are that I have depression and take effexor for it (I kinda don’t want them to know about that bc of discrimination) and I’m not the healthiest :/ which I dont need them to tell me. like I dont want them coming after me and being like “your liver enzymes are high” (from graduation celebrations 😅🥲) I have my own doctors that I see and kinda don’t want to see theirs if Im honest. I have no worries about passing a drug test though (yay me) but has anyone had issues with the physical before?? Are the details of your health physical still HIPAA protected? I’m not comfortable with the RPD or preceptors knowing about my depression bc I take care of it with my own doctor. Or am I just overthinking :/ and worried about nothing? Any advice would be appreciated!!! Thank you

2023.05.30 22:30 WRX_MOM Insurance hiccups and shenanigans at an all time high?

I take basically every plan other than Medicare and Medicaid, I have a billing service, and also use Headway for Aetna and some CareFirst. I also run benefits checks myself sometimes. Availity is down almost all of the time. I/ we are being flat out told the wrong benefits when we call, plans are randomly “deciding” that they are covering mental health at 100% in April for the year and want me to reimburse the client, plans kicking back claims but then stating they made a mistake and are processing them when they are resubmitted. I could go and on I have more examples of random mistakes like this and it seems to be every insurance plan. This is my FIFTH year in PP and I have never seen so many billing mistakes. Is anyone else experiencing this or is there just a black cloud over my practice? Could it be due to insurance companies laying people off and there are fewer people outsourcing claims? I feel lost.

2023.05.30 22:28 finallysecret Probably not what they were expecting, but the doc made me like them and the show less. Anyone else?

I've listened to every single episode since the beginning. I love how quick-witted and funny they are, and how much they seem to care about each other. The way they tease was always a little uncomfortable but I just assumed it was part of their relationship and nobody minded.
But after seeing the doc, how Jason bullies both of them about their diet and health, how Will calls them names endlessly, and especially how physical he got with Sean, I just have lost interest in them and the show. The most distressing scene was where Will and Sean were slap-boxing, and Will was being so aggressive and overpowering -- it made me think that Sean had endured a lot of that as a kid and teen, and now he's getting it from a "friend."
Did anyone else have a similar reaction? I'm sure the purpose of the doc was to increase interest but it's had the opposite effect on me.

Know roles and responsibilities of a prison officer
Prison officer or corrections officers are a uniformed law enforcement officer who is responsible to take care of the custody, supervision, safety, and regulation of prisoners. Prison officers are responsible for the security of people who are convicted of a crime and sentenced to imprisonment. They are responsible for the security of the facility and property.

2023.05.30 22:21 Boring_Tradition_581 A clock I was working on literally almost got me killed.

A clock I was working on literally almost got me killed.
I was working on a over oiled mantle clock mechanism, and was removing the brass plate that keeps the gears held in place so that I could was each piece individually. I intended to unwind the mainsprings once I got there. But then I removed the plate, the mainsprings released for a reason I still don’t know. The springs unwound, making the entire mechanism explode. I did have a mess to pick up, and had to go to a urgent care to get a TDaP shot. But a week later, I can confidently say I’m OK.

2023.05.30 22:20 ZookeepergameOne5236 Please read this if you are struggling with ANYTHING

I've posted a lot of versions of this in comments and it's my OC however I feel it needs a post of its own for people who are struggling. Whether that be mental health, sexuality, life worries or anything. This one is for everyone, so feel free to send it to someone who may need it even if they haven't said as much.
You're struggling now but look at your past struggles and just assess them for a minute. You have faced, and won, every single battle that life has sent your way. You know how I know that? Because you're still here. Still fighting. Take a moment to look back at your past battles. Go on, take a moment and reflect on them. You can pick up HERE once you've had a minute to assess them.
You see all those daemons you've defeated? Did you see each and every challenge that has ever been put in front of you? Notice that they're BEHIND you now? That is because you have come through them and that means that you are AWESOME. You have left legions of daemons broken and vanquished in your wake, some of those daemons were created by your own psyche. Your own mind that knows EVERY vulnerability and hidden fear that you possess and you have STILL beaten them and got to this point. That is not something easily accomplished but you have.
Now you're facing this new challenge and what? You're going to let this be the one that defeats you? The one that makes you tap out and give up? You're telling me that THIS is going to be what finally breaks you? No, I didn't think so either. Compared to all that other shit you've just looked back on this next battle is like a teletubby holding a wet dandelion. You have come through so, SO much and to think that whatever life throws at you now can even trouble you is a ludicrous notion and I won't have it.
You may have battled with addiction, your sexuality, mental health issues, physical health issues, employment struggles, money worries, trauma, housing challenges, social and familial trouble, legal challenges, heartache, heartbreak, loss, longing or even just the fact that they don't make great rock music like they used to after the turn of the century (yes I know, I'm old) but you battled them and the very fact that you're reading this means that you've WON!
I'm Germanic Pagan (think Norse with slightly different names) and I'll tell you this now there is a seat in Valhalla or Folkvangr for you. The Valkyries don't come for those that lose their battles, they come for those who stand and fight them rather than turning and hiding. Any fool can have a fight with someone else but the battles that take true courage are the ones you've already won. The daemons you've already beaten. Woden (Odin) and Freya cannot wait to hear your tales of how you found your inner strength but you won't be telling them for many years to come, and in time the great heroes of the ages will toast and roar to hear more about how you overcame not mere mortals but the trials life placed before you.
Now, let's get back to this teletubby in the room shall we? This latest issue that life has dared throw at you. I don't need to know what it is I just know that compared to what you've already overcome this is nothing more than an annoying children's character holding a rapidly drooping weed. This isn't going to be what breaks you, it's nothing more than an inconvenience compared to what you've already bested. Show me whoever told you life was easy or fair and I'll show you a barefaced liar who needs a high five to the face and I'm not saying this is going to be easy. I'm saying you've come through worse so to give in to this...this... Quite frankly this insult of a challenge would be beneath you and you know it, even if you don't always believe it. Well you're going to start believing it because the next time life knocks you down merely stand back up, adjust your hair and clothes just so and politely inform life that it clearly has no idea just who it is messing with. Glance and the vanquished daemons behind you then look that purple bastard in the eye and watch it shudder and say "eh oh... Shit" when it realises it's picked the wrong fight.
Whatever this latest battle is you've already got it beat, it just doesn't know it yet. Things may not go how you'd like them to go but I refer you back to tha fairness of life and the facial application of a high five to anyone who would say otherwise but again, you're not going to be beaten by that. It didn't go your way, you're not the kind to give up after a setback because you're STILL fighting. You're STILL moving forwards leaving even more daemons banished in your wake.
Just because it's your battle does NOT mean that you're facing it alone. Ask anyone for help whether it be friends, family, coworkers, professional organisations, the postman Hel, even some aging old sod like me on the other side of a screen. I'm going to be honest here and say I don't care WHO you ask just so long as you ask. We're a social species and whilst a few idiots continue to defy Darwin in that respect the good FAR outweigh the evil in the world.
Now by all means have five minutes to yourself, we all need it now and then but you're only getting five minutes so make it count. Cry, shout, scream, punch a pillow, write as many words that would make your mother blush as you can in five minutes then throw it in the bin. Whatever it is that works for you do it but you only get five minutes. After that dry your eyes (I personally cry like a newborn but that's just me), put the pillow back on the bed/sofa and do what you do best. Make the world a little more fabulous than it was yesterday. If you're really in a "sod it" mood then do something a little different to claim the day for yourself. Try a new hairstyle or wear that outfit that makes you feel invincible (we've all got one, don't deny it), play your music extra loud in your headphones and imagine belting it out on stage with thousands of people screaming for more. Flirt with your partner like you're teenagers again or do something to melt their heart. One of their favourite flowers 'just because' or order their favourite takeaway. Perform a random act of kindness for a stranger and do so whilst unashamedly being your fabulously awesome self.
Whatever it is that you're struggling with you got this, and we've got your back. You'll never walk alone.

2023.05.30 22:15 DarkDetectiveGames Privacy laws in Canada could get worse, Bill C-27 Digital Records Act/ Consumer Privacy Protection Act

Bill C-27 is a Bill in Canada that would replace the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) with the new so called Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA). It has passed second reading. This new law is worse than PIPEDA.
1 The Protections (or lack thereof)
CPPA offers less protection than PIPEDA. Under PIPEDA organizations are required to give purposes must be stated in such a manner that the individual can reasonably understand how the information will be used or disclosed. Under CPPA organizations still must give purposes, however they do not have to give individuals an understanding of the information will be used or disclosed.
This law introduces vague new exceptions to consent. These are the new exceptions (note de-identified means pretty much nothing. You can still be identified): Business Activities
18 (1) An organization may collect or use an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent if the collection or use is made for the purpose of a business activity described in subsection (2) and
(a) a reasonable person would expect the collection or use for such an activity; >and
(b) the personal information is not collected or used for the purpose of influencing the individual’s behaviour or decisions.
List of activities
(2) Subject to the regulations, the following activities are business activities for the purpose of subsection (1):
(a) an activity that is necessary to provide a product or service that the individual has requested from the organization;
(b) an activity that is necessary for the organization’s information, system or network security;
(c) an activity that is necessary for the safety of a product or service that the organization provides; and
(d) any other prescribed activity.
Legitimate Interest
An organization may collect or use an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent if the collection or use is made for the purpose of an activity in which the organization has a legitimate interest that outweighs any potential adverse effect on the individual resulting from that collection or use and
(a) a reasonable person would expect the collection or use for such an activity; and
(b) the personal information is not collected or used for the purpose of influencing the individual’s behaviour or decisions. Research, analysis and development 21 An organization may use an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent for the organization’s internal research, analysis and development purposes, if the information is de-identified before it is used. Information produced in employment, business or profession An organization may collect, use or disclose an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent if it was produced by the individual in the course of their employment, business or profession and the collection, use or disclosure is consistent with the purposes for which the information was produced.
Employment relationship — federal work, undertaking or business
24 An organization that operates a federal work, undertaking or business may collect, use or disclose an individual’s personal information without their consent if
(a) the collection, use or disclosure is necessary to establish, manage or terminate an employment relationship between the organization and the individual in connection with the operation of a federal work, undertaking or business; and
(b) the organization has informed the individual that the personal information will be or may be collected, used or disclosed for those purposes. Financial abuse
34 An organization may on its own initiative disclose an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent to a government institution, a part of a government institution or the individual’s next of kin or authorized representative if
(a) the organization has reasonable grounds to believe that the individual has been, is or may be the victim of financial abuse;
(b) the disclosure is made solely for purposes related to preventing or investigating the abuse; and
(c) it is reasonable to expect that disclosure with the knowledge or consent of the individual would compromise the ability to prevent or investigate the abuse. Statistics, study or research 35 An organization may disclose an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent if
(a) the disclosure is made for statistical purposes or for study or research purposes and those purposes cannot be achieved without disclosing the information;
(b) it is impracticable to obtain consent; and
(c) the organization informs the Commissioner of the disclosure before the information is disclosed.
Socially beneficial purposes
39 (1) An organization may disclose an individual’s personal information without their knowledge or consent if
(a) the personal information is de-identified before the disclosure is made;
(b) the disclosure is made to
(i) a government institution or part of a government institution in Canada,
(ii) a health care institution, post-secondary educational institution or public library in Canada,
(iii) any organization that is mandated, under a federal or provincial law or by contract with a government institution or part of a government institution in Canada, to carry out a socially beneficial purpose, or
(iv) any other prescribed entity; and
(c) the disclosure is made for a socially beneficial purpose.
2 Enforcement
CPPA's enforcement is similar to PIPEDA's but worse. At least there are penalties. The process:

  1. An individual files a complaint with the OPC. There are several reasons which can the commissioner can use to not investigate but not talking to the organization first isn't one of them.
  2. The OPC investigates during which the Commissioner may attempt to resolve a complaint by means of a dispute resolution mechanism such as mediation and conciliation, unless an inquiry is being conducted in respect of the complaint or try to enter a compliance agreement. There is not time frame for this. (note under PIPEDA, a report of findings must be issued within a year see my last post)). It doesn't really say what an "investigation" is.
  3. If the matter is still not resolved or the commissioner believe a compliance agreement is being breach an inquiry will start. The Commissioner must make rules respecting the conduct of an inquiry, including the procedure and rules of evidence to be followed, and must make those rules publicly available.
  4. After the inquiry, the commissioner must make a decision.
(a) the Commissioner’s findings on whether the organization has contravened this Act or has not complied with the terms of a compliance agreement;
(b) any order made under subsection (2);
(c) any decision made under subsection 94(1); and
(d) the Commissioner’s reasons for the findings, order or decision.
"Compliance order"
(2) The Commissioner may, to the extent that is reasonably necessary to ensure compliance with this Act, order the organization to
(a) take measures to comply with this Act;
(b) stop doing something that is in contravention of this Act;
(c) comply with the terms of a compliance agreement that has been entered into by the organization; or
(d) make public any measures taken or proposed to be taken to correct the policies, practices or procedures that the organization has put in place to fulfill its obligations under this Act.
This must happen within 2 years of the complaint being followed, except it might not, see my last post.
  1. The commissioner may recommend a penalty be imposed. This seems irrelevant because of,
  2. Appeals may be made by the complainant or respondent to the tribunal with respect to a finding made by the inquiry, an order made by the commissioner or the commissioner's decision not to recommend a penalty. You only have 30 days to go to court. Under PIPEDA you have a year.
  3. The tribunal may impose a penalty for all the contraventions in a recommendation taken together is the higher of $10,000,000 and 3% of the organization’s gross global revenue in its financial year before the one in which the penalty is imposed. Those numbers are the maximum. The law sets out relevant factors.
  4. You may sue for damages if a finding previously made says the respondent has violated the act. This is done in federal court or the superior court of a province.
  5. An order by the tribunal may be reviewed by the Federal Court. The judgment of the federal court may be appealed to the Federal Court of Appeal. The Supreme court may also take an appeal afterwards. This is much longer than PIPEDA and although there are fines, the protections are so weak that the fines barely matter.
