2023.05.30 23:18 PerfectJury7481 Cannabis Grower Here Wicking System or DWC?
I have been considering switching from a DWC system to a wicking system. I am currently growing in the basement of my apartment, there is no water access in the basement, and it would appear that there would be fewer bucket trips with the wicking system. I am also finding myself having a lot of nutrient issues with the plants when I try and do DWC, should I try and master the DWC craft or just try out the wicking system? It seems like less maintenance from what the guy at the shop was telling me but wanted to get the opinion of my fellow Redditors!

2023.05.30 23:18 godjustendit Is this possible? I think the way my brain handles serotonin is still a little messed up
I can't be sure if it's because I took antidepressants for six years starting from when I was 15 or not. It has been about six years since I have stopped taking antidepressants. But I still deal with constant acid reflux.
During the time I took antidepressants, I would try to tell people that I felt sick and they would constantly tell me it was my anxiety. :/ Except, I had many gastrointestinal problems during this time. I even got a colonoscopy for them because I kept having to go to the ER (about five times) due to extreme stomach pain. They found no issue, though. Said nothing was wrong with me. Because I was autistic, the counselor I was seeing for autism kept telling me to go on a gluten free diet because there is some correlation between gluten sensitivity and autism or something. I have no idea if this is true. Those diets never did anything for me.
I ended up figuring out when I was about to have stomach issues and just drank a shitton of water whenever my stomach hurt. It kept me from the ER. Maybe I just couldn't tell when I was dehydrated back in the day. The issues stopped happening almost entirely when I stopped my antidepressants, and what do you know? My antidepressant caused almost every single symptom I was having that was dismissed as "anxiety".
They prescribed me shit in ways that I found out later they should not have done. I had sleep issues (to be fair, this has been the case all my life, but serotonin does not help with this) and they gave me melatonin. They didn't want to give me sleeping pills, which is great, because I knew they were addictive and didn't want them. But they just had me take it all the time, when you're supposed to do breaks with them for better results. Nope. They also made me take an acid reducer all the time. You're not supposed to do that. I was having a bout of intense acid reflux the other day so I bought OTC acid reflux medicine one day and was shocked that they specifically told you not to take it more than 14 days at a time every four months on the box. I looked it up and it's bad for you to take it all the time, and I cannot remember feeling better taking it all the time either. But they prescribed it anyways. And they prescribed me it because the antidepressants gave me acid reflux and now I still deal with it 24/7.
Everything I do now that gives me "good chemicals" makes me feel sick. I lay down and I get a headache. I feel nauseous when I play video games. I can get sick for hours if I'm not careful while playing games. If I eat, I get sick. If I don't eat, I get sick. You know, it goes on. Can serotonin mess with how the brain processes these chemicals this long-term or is it something else?
I cold-turkeyed my meds because I had been taking them so long that they plain stopped doing anything for me. I didn't feel any different. I now know that this is really dangerous and you shouldn't do that. But do you think that cold-turkeying could also cause these problems after this long? I have ADHD and I feel like that also may be part of the the problem. I strangely feel like I'm "overdosing" on "good chemicals" all the time, and it makes me feel sick all the time. It happens almost every time I try to do something I enjoy. I even looked up if you can get serotonin syndrome when you're not on meds and/or if you have ADHD.
I can't say if I know what the cause of this is. It may not be the antidepressants or other meds I took at all. And I can't say I've been flawless with my diet all this time, but I've definitely improved, and I just don't feel like I should feel like crap all the time with how I've been living, all things considered. Has anyone had similar experiences?

2023.05.30 23:18 SteinerElMagnifico42 How often to moisturise 4c hair ? And how often to wash out the moisturiser
Is it safe to apply water based-moisturiser daily and only wash it out every 4days or so?
My current routine is this Shampoo once every 10 days
Conditioner every 4 days And apply my water based moisturiser daily with a spritz spray just after I sprayed on a few sprays of water.
Is there something I should change? Front of hair doesn’t grow as fast as the back

2023.05.30 23:18 jakoning How to remove woodland smell from tent
Went on a 4 night trip over the weekend and my tent is now hanging up airing out of direct sunlight as I always do after a trip.
I wildcamped in heavily wooded areas and the tent body, fly, and footprint all have quite a strong woody leafy smell. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the smell? I thought hanging it up for 24 hours might work but it doesn't seem to.
Would rinsing with water and a soft cloth work?

2023.05.30 23:18 Heff228 What was wrong with Tim Sabean?
Did he have autism or something? I'm specifically talking about the time he took a picture of Ross Zapins balding head or when he sprayed a fire extinguisher in a club.
It was wacky stuff that wasn't really funny, and when he always got called on it, he was so awkward with stammering and trying to get away as quick as possible (always said he had work to do).
In a show with no shortage of odd people, he kind of stands out as an odd person. What was his deal?

2023.05.30 23:18 AbleAd7013 Question about client behavior/reinforcer
Hello, so my client has problem behavior (peeing in pants purposefully)after denied access to specific high reinforcer. This has already been identified as function of access to reinforcer. She is also doing a toileting program which she mastered and is on maintenance with me. Her having accidents on purpose has been a pattern. I ignore much as possible meaning not give attention by commenting or verbal reprimand have her change her clothes and proceed on. We either do work time or lesser preferred activity right after. After she does this, does it make sense to give access to that specific reinforcer if she request? Or will this reinforce “i can have accident and later i can still get that toy” Or should i withhold that specific reinforcer the next time she goes potty and has dry underwear. This toy is usually one of her options to play when she has free time though as she has another specified reinforcer for toileting. Talking to my bcba about it but wanted to hear others opinions

2023.05.30 23:16 Fantastic-Ad-3314 30 Days Strict Carnivore
Yesterday I passed 31 days on the carnivore.
I started out lion style - eating only ruminant animal meat + water
This lasted for 10 days, before realizing that I was not getting enough calories.
From Day 10 - Until now I added in eggs and raw milk Reasons
- Arthritis (in hands)
- Skin (dermatitis + small breakouts)
-upon waking; I hit the gym fasted with an electrolyte (sodium, potassium, vitamin c — sugar free)
- 12 noon is the first meal consisting of 1.25Lbs ground bison + 5 eggs
- 6-7pm; 1+ Lbs Ribeye + 5 eggs
- in between there is roughly a gallon or more of water
- before bed I have a tall glass of Whole Raw milk (living in Washington State this is legal)
Conclusions so far;
- Arthritis has dramatically improved I have almost no pain in my hands, which would be most painful in the waking hours of the morning
- Skin; slight improvement- less flaking, but not a total remission
ADDED BONUS - mental focus and acuity. This cannot be understated. It’s a very cool, calm & collected response. Stable energy throughout the day
- Gym strength and power has definitely decreased
- Digestion seems almost non existent (very strange to only go once or twice per week)
-boredom in food. Now don’t get me wrong, Satiety is certainly a by product of this diet. It’s a great feeling to not crave sweets or carbs and to feel satiated after a fat ribeye. But I do miss simple things, like a side of coleslaw …… or gluten free pancakes
I have a link for the YouTube video I did if anyone wants it to see exactly how I did things. I know there has to be permission or something first.
Just let me know and I will provide in the comments if possible! NOTE
I am still eating this way. Considering another month to see if it will improve skin

2023.05.30 23:15 MrsMcGillacuddy153 Baby doesn’t like water
I have a 6.5 month baby girl and she does not like water. During bath time, she cries or has a wtf look on her face the entire time. We make sure the water’s warm, put a receiving blanket in the baby bath tub, cover her with a warm washcloth, talk extra sweet to her and have toys but no matter what she doesn’t have a good time. I picked her up from daycare today and they said they put her in an up seat in a kiddie pool filled with water and did not like it.
How can I encourage my baby to like the water?

2023.05.30 23:15 TrentE22 Been Swimming for 2 Weeks and Loving It!
| || |
Hi all, I (26M) just joined this sub and I wanted to share my instant love for swimming. submitted by TrentE22 to Swimming [link] [comments]
I’ve always liked being in the water but I quickly realized I wasn’t the best swimmer when I got cut by my high school water polo team, because of my inability to swim efficiently; they haven’t had to cut anyone anytime before 2014.
Ever since then I was really involved in lifting until last year when I suffered from a severely herniated disc from a freak accident at the gym (L4-L5). Had to go through the surgery and gained 30lbs. All by a lack of self discipline, because I lost my routine and couldn’t do anything confidently anymore.
But as of the last two and a half weeks, I decided to hop in the pool. I always knew it was a great workout to help build lean muscle and improve upon cardiovascular health. My first week of swimming was brutal and I could barely swim for 50 yards without feeling like I was dying. Then, something clicked, I started watching a ton of videos on how to breathe and started being confident in what I was doing with my freestyle stroke and breast-stroke and in the last week and a half I’ve been in some sort of meditative flow-state and seem to be able swim for an extended period of time.
The major plus side for me, is that my hips aren’t nearly as tight as they used to be and I feel more core actively getting stronger. Then naturally all of my confidence is slowly coming back; and my S/O is noticing a difference in my day to day to mood and stoked for me as well. I’m looking forward to swimming pretty much everyday and I’m itching to just get in and go, as I’m typing this.
So for all the newbies like me, my message is to just get in and do it. Then for all the intermediates and advanced swimmers any advice will help, I’m extremely coachable.
I’m going to attach my most recent 1000 yard swims for reference.
Thank you and I’m looking forward to any reply!
2023.05.30 23:13 josejuliansoberanis Embracing Change: The Key to Personal Growth
In life, change is inevitable. It can be both intimidating and exhilarating, but it is through embracing change that we unlock the door to personal growth. When we resist change, we confine ourselves to our comfort zones, limiting our potential and missing out on new opportunities.
Change forces us to adapt and evolve. It challenges us to step out of familiar territories and explore uncharted waters. It pushes us to confront our fears and discover strengths we didn't know we had. It is in the face of change that we truly discover who we are and what we are capable of.
Though change can be uncomfortable, it often holds within it the seeds of transformation and progress. It presents us with the chance to redefine ourselves, to shed old habits and embrace new perspectives. Change propels us forward on the path of self-discovery, paving the way for personal breakthroughs and a deeper understanding of ourselves.
To embrace change, we must cultivate a mindset of openness and resilience. We must let go of the need for control and embrace uncertainty. By doing so, we free ourselves from the grip of fear and open ourselves up to endless possibilities.
Change is not always easy, but it is necessary for growth. It is through the ups and downs of life that we learn, evolve, and become the best versions of ourselves. So, let us welcome change with open arms, for it is in embracing change that we embark on a journey of self-transformation and create a life filled with meaning and fulfillment.
Remember, change is not the enemy; it is a catalyst for personal growth. Embrace it, learn from it, and watch as it propels you toward a brighter and more fulfilling future.

2023.05.30 23:13 NoAccountant5588 My mom is dating someone who tried to groom me when I was 13
My mom (45, female) is dating a man who tried to groom me (28, male). I came on here because I don’t know what to do anymore I’ve tried to speak to my mom, dad, brother, many other family members but it just seems like no one cares and nobody is taking my side. Back when I was 13 my mother just went through a break up with a man who verbally abused her and physically and sexually abused me. Although she only knew about the physical abuse not the sexual abuse. (He is now a husband to a new woman and has a child and I blame myself everyday for not telling anyone about because now I feel like if this child goes through anything it’s my fault but this isn’t what the story is about.) Anyways at the time my mom was a cult like christian and we went to church very often where we met my mom’s now bf. Since day one he was always creeping on young teenage girls until I became one of them he would ask for my number and ask to hang out. At the time I was honestly flattered because I had extreme daddy issues and any male validation or attention meant a lot to me. He began to try and win my mom over so that dating me wouldn’t be a problem. Again I was 13 he was 24 which is a year older than my oldest sister. This went on for a year where he constantly flirt with me at church and ask if I was single he even one time back me in a corner at a wedding in front of my cousin. At this point I began to see how weird and creepy he was and began to distance myself. I just began high school at this point and began crushing on this guy. I told my church friend that I had a crush at school and he over heard and got extremely upset and he began lecturing about how high school relationships are puppy love and is stupid. Anyways one day we noticed he stopped coming to church and we also did because we had an altercation with one the church members and we left and never came back. Years later he reached out to my mom to confide in her of why he left the church. He said he was being accused of grooming a girl the daughter of the church member we had an altercation with so already my mom was biased and believe everything he said me on the other had already knew what the real true story was. He had said he was being nice to the girl she fell in love and he rejected her and she told her parents who confronted him. But I knew that he groomed her and she fell in love and he got caught by the parents. My mom began inviting him to hang out with me and her. One time we were going swimming and we stopped and a gas station where I was in the back seat asleep my mom got off to pay for gas and he pulls my blanket off of me where I was just wearing shorts and a tank. I pulled the blanket back and covered myself and gave him a dirty look. The whole he kept staring at me and kept being weird when my mom wasn’t around. He called her to ask me out on an ice cream date and my mom obviously was weirded out and said no. She was very weirded out and annoyed until he contacted her again and said he was just joking and she believed him. All of a sudden my mom and i stoped hanging out being she was always “busy”. I somehow found out they were hooking up and she invited him to thanksgiving where my dad was. My parents constantly try to coparents but my dad is an alcoholic and constantly tries to argue with her. He noticed her and her bf being flirty and began cussing her out. He also noticed him staring at me and went crazy on him cussing him out left and right. He was intimidated by dad and left and that’s when my mom went with him and left me and brother. I broke down and my brother asked what happened and I told him everything my brother is a very closed off person and doesn’t like to show any emotion towards me so he ended up leaving the house as well. The day after my mom and I got into it where I told her everything and she completely dismissed me. After that my mom began inviting him to family events and began to talk about me saying how I was rebelling against her just like my oldest sister did at my age and everyone and the family keeps telling me so stop being selfish because my mom always did everything to put my happiness before mines so I should do the same. It hurts me so deeply because I genuinely have a good and trusting relationship with my mom but this one thing is really ruining it. I keep telling her what he did to me but she refuses to listen. It feels like no one is listening or taking my side. This has genuinely been taking a huge toll on me and at such a young age began using alcohol as a way to cope and it hurts that after years of keeping quiet after being sexually abused by her ex because I saw how happy SHE was I have to keep getting hurt by her just to keep seeing her be happy. I don’t know what to do anymore all I do is cry at night and just want to leave this earth. I think the betrayal of a mother hurts more than any other.

2023.05.30 23:13 ColdBlackWater Candlestick
A couple of years ago I was staying the night in Charleville Castle, Tullamore. I was volunteering with a group of friends at the time making preparations for a festival that was to take place and we were all staying in a room at the top of one of the towers. https://www.boards.ie/discussion/comment/73649106/#Comment_73649106
Now the place is supposedly very haunted, and I'd heard a multitude of stories about sightings and spooky experiences, but I didn't really think much of them.
Anyways, as we were all getting into our beds ready to go to sleep I realised I needed to use the bathroom. I decided I wouldn't be able to sleep a wink if I didn't go so I ventured down the tower staircase by myself towards the bathroom, which was located on a lower floor.
Now there's a big scary story surrounding that particular staircase, concerning a young girl who fell to her death and is continuing to haunt the castle, but I won't get into it. All I'll say is that even though I don't really believe in all of it, it still felt pretty spooky walking down there in the dark by myself.
As I approached the bottom of the staircase and was about to open the door to the landing, my stomach kind of flipped a bit I guess, weird sudden anxiety took hold. I went through the door and immediately could hear a crackling sound, and could see a flickering amber light coming from one of the rooms to my right through a door that was ajar.
I ran over, opened the door and immediately saw the weirdest thing.
There was a candle, thicker than my arm, sitting on top of the piano fully on fire from top to bottom. We're talking a full, thick column of flame coming out of brand new candle, just there for ornamental purposes. I knew there was a fire extinguisher in the next room, but I also knew if I went and sprayed down this restored antique room without anybody else seeing the fire I'd likely get in trouble.
So basically I ran back up the tower and woke all my friends, who took a painstaking amount of time getting out of their beds, all the while telling me to F off and go to sleep, stop taking the piss basically.
Finally, they sauntered down the staircase with me running around in front yelling Fire. As soon as they opened the door to the landing and heard the flames, they sprung into action and one of them grabbed the extinguisher and doused it.
That's basically the story, we were all a little shaken up by it, but we haven't really talked about it much to this day. It's always plagued me that a thick run of the mill candle could go on fire like that. It was about a foot or so tall while it was burning so it was still fairly new.
Also I've always thought with a candle that thick, if left unnattended, it would pretty much melt middle first. I just can't see how it could have lit up like that simply by itself.

2023.05.30 23:12 constantchsnge SS10 told me he’s afraid he won’t get attention from us when new baby is here
I am currently pregnant with mine and my husband’s first child together. My SS lives with us 80% of the time. He’s a sweet kid and thoughtful BUT He is VERY clingy and attention seeking… he cannot be left alone because he’ll start crying. Like, this morning, I went to water the garden outside at 6:30am while he was sleeping and he comes outside crying at 6:40. I thought he maybe hurt himself and asked what’s wrong to which he said “I thought you left me?! Why didn’t you say anything ?! I kept calling for you!”. Nobody has EVER left him alone, threatened to leave him or anything of that sort.
If I’m cooking, he’s right there in the kitchen. In the bathroom, he knocks after 10 mins to see if I’m okay. If I’m laying down on my phone, he’ll sit down next to me and asks what I’m doing. I love the kid but it’s fucking annoying and draining to say the least. And anytime I say something, i have to be mean about it or else he will not leave me alone.
He told me that once I have the baby, he is worried that he won’t get attention from us. I can’t split myself in two and obviously the baby will get more attention than he will. I don’t know if I’ll be able to take this kid being up my ass 24/7 while I’m trying to take care of the baby.

2023.05.30 23:12 gayforjimmyG The Nahel Bond Terrifies Me
This might already be accepted, but the copper mind doesn't mention it on the Nahel Bond page. The mechanism of the Luhel is a symbiosis that is not wholly mutualistic but parasitic in certain ways. Tress gives up water for control of the midnight essence.
The Nahel Bond is stated as returning "anchoring in reality" for access to surgebinding. What exactly are the radiants giving up though?
Does it have anything to do with the Recreance or was that only tied to surge bind itself? Is the behaviour of the Sky breakers evidence of a loss of anchoring to reality?
It terrifies me, but it also gives me Legion vibes from X-Men which would be cool.

This is year 3 of my grass. I water this Bermuda once a week for 20-30 minutes at least once a week if there's no rain. I've aerated, I use Scotts either triple action or summefall winter bags. I've used 50lbs of Scotts soil improver, 100lbs of humichar. Every year it gets thinner and thinner. Last year I even spread 70 bags of Scotts top soil (red . 75 cubic foot) and it helps a lot for about a week and after the first cut it's back to normal. I have a poa annua issue in some spots and my area had a major chickweed problem I got under control over around a month and a half of work. submitted by postmodernroot to lawncare [link] [comments]

2023.05.30 23:11 gabagool610 New remote job has crummy break system. Is this normal/similar for other people?
Hey everyone. I was laid off from my prior job august 22 and recently got hired on remotely for a healthcare tech company as a customer service associate.
During new hire training (which lasted 6 weeks, technically 5, since week 6 we are by ourselves), we are told if we have to go to the bathroom, just switch the Salesforce status to "on break." We are also told that all company policies (PTO, break times, holidays, etc) would be reviewed at the very end during our meetings with our managers (technically week 7).
We are told we get (2) paid 15 min breaks and (1) unpaid hour lunch. Which is fine, my last job was similar. (But it was paid 30min lunch).
During the last 3 weeks (I'm in week 7 right now) I get a DM from my manager stating I've gone over my paid 30min break time like 3 times (at least once a week from him). Confused, I ask my trainer about this and she is not aware of going over as we are told in training not to worry about it.
I had a one on one meeting with my manager and he explains that if we go to the bathroom, anytime spend should be deducted from one of our 15 min breaks. So if I step away between calls to pee since I'm trying to stay hydrated, and am in the bathroom for 3min for example, my break is now 12min long. It is conflicting because I said I was trying to stay hydrated and he said, "oh well of course we want you to drink water and we're all human. So I don't want you feel like you need to keep a stopwatch when walking away."
HOWEVER the follow up after that statement is: "just deduct however much time you are away from your work station from your break. Don't go over your alotted 30min of break a day."
I lowkey had a little anxiety about it because in any previous position I've had, you could just go use the restroom and also have your regular breaks?
Additionally we were told if we have a tough call that "hey, were human go take care of yourself after." Which just happened for me for the first time today. But before I even thought about stepping away for a quick deep breathing session, I asked my manager if we had to deduct that time too and, of course, he said we do. So I was like "I'll just wait for my break."
This is all on top of the fact that they don't review any break, PTO, holiday policies until Friday of week 7. But I'm already being called out once a week on a policy that was never officially reviewed.
I'm not looking for any snide comments about how I could be a snowflake or anything. I'm honestly curious if anyone else has experienced this. If so, what did you do? Did you talk to the team? Did you quit? This just seems so micromanaging and fake to me. I get needing to police remote employees to reduce taking advantage of breaks. But I feel like there should be a better way to allow bathroom breaks and breathing breaks if needed. I'm also looking to get out of the customer service field. Any tips would be appreciated.....I'm just one person in a sea of millions looking for some kindness is all....it's been a rough couple weeks. Thanks for your time.

2023.05.30 23:10 Jealous-Nectarine-74 Help! I can't make pour over that tastes any better than Timmys!
Help! I can't make pour over that tastes any better than Tim Hortons!
(Tim Hortons is a Canadian commodity coffee chain)
What I'm doing:
- measuring out 15 g of beans, grinding in a jzpresso grinder set to a similar grind that I'd use for espresso (so this seems like the obvious place to start but wait!) - usually using medium roast beans that were not specifically roasted for espresso - right now, the Costa Rica Cedral Red Honey from my usual roaster, but I've tried other beans and roasts - pouring charcoal filtered water heated in a long neck kettle - over the coffee above in a Hario V60 (white ceramic if you must know) with a paper filter - letting it bloom first, then pouring more and more water lightly stirring part way (throttled by the slow drip speed and small basket in the V60) - aiming for a 20:1 ratio; so 300ml of beverage from the 15g of beans
And like I said it tastes like perfectly fine medium roast coffee, but very little in the way of difference from bean to bean.
When I dial in espresso I can tell right away "too sour" or "too bitter" and adjust accordlingly, and I'm getting some great, unique flavors out of the beans. With pour over, however, it always just seems ... the same.
Am I expecting too much? Is that one of the things about espresso is the extra flavor intensity? Am I doing it wrong? I've tried adjusting the grinder to a bit of a coarser grain, but it doesn't seem to change much, or at least not in the ways I'm expecting.
