2023.06.03 06:32 lonely_dad84 Single dad, not sure who I am anymore

Created a new account, bc family has main. Please forgive formatting, on mobile, etc.
So I've been feeling really burnt out lately. It seems like parenting is taking up all of my time, to the point where I don't even know who I am anymore. I have 3 young kids ages 2, 4, and 7. Mom isn't in the picture anymore for "reasons". My job is 12 hour shifts, which I'm very lucky that grandparents provide most of the childcare. All in all, not a terrible situation. Kids are happy, know that they're loved, and we're scraping by.
My issue is, I feel like I've lost my entire identity. I work, I come home, get the kids dinner, baths, and go through the bedtime routine. Once they're in bed I pack lunches, get bags ready, take care of the pets, and generally get ready for the next day. After all that I'm exhausted, but I find myself staying up anyways just to have some time to sit finally. I always end up going to bed later than I should, and have a severe caffeine addiction because of it. I never really go out, unless it's to take the kids somewhere. Friends are almost non-existent, bc you can only say "I can't" so many times before you stop getting invited. I feel like the me I used to be is gone and I'm a shell of my former self, just going through the motions.
I know it's not fair to my kids to be like this, so I've been doing teletherapy on my lunch breaks. But it's still a very lonely existence, and it's wearing me down.

2023.06.03 06:30 777spam Medication dosage adjustment sent me into a depressive episode?

For context: So I have been on Cymbalta 30mg for the last few years and started Wellbutrin 75mg (immediate release) about 10 months ago. I recently had my Cymbalta brought down to 20mg and a week after doing that my Wellbutrin was bumped up to 150mg (extended release).
I'm not sure if it was just the Wellbutrin that is contributing to this or because I had them adjusted within a week apart but this last week has been absolute hell and it really started around the time my Wellbutrin shifted. I have no interest in anything, I've stopped responding to any messages from anybody, I have no desire to talk to anyone or leave my room. I had so many exciting plans during summer that I've canceled because I rather just lay in bed all day. I have been in bed for the last week and have barely eaten. I feel like I have been alternating between feeling numb and feeling absolute sadness. I don't feel love or excitement towards anything. I just have absolutely no desire for anything at all. I feel as though my mental health absolutely plummeted out of no where after switching this dose. I know Wellbutrin has an adjustment period but I never felt any of this when I started the 75mg. Is this a normal thing to feel when first upping your Wellbutrin dose? Do I just have to ride this out for another 2 weeks until it kicks in?
Side note: I do have an appointment with my psych to discuss adjusting my dosage and to tell him what I have been doing. Due to insurance issues, I saw a different psychiatrist and he was the one that managed my medication. After this whole ordeal, I decided I rather pay the expensive copay and see my regular psych doctor to manage my meds since he's been doing it for a while now, he is who I am seeing tomorrow.

2023.06.03 06:27 GaryGaulin Agnostic Neil deGrasse Tyson versus Intelligent Design and Atheists. Example of Scientific Method of Thomas Huxley. And a promising future for Agnosticism for All. Enjoy!

Neil previously became very stuck in religious politics, and had to explain why he is fully Agnostic not Atheist. Here is a short video:
People try to bring him down with lists of everything he said that is wrong like "blind as a bat" and others. I myself left a comment on one of his YouTube videos to cool it on the "Theory of Intelligent Design" being scientifically impossible, because I have one and resources are now at Reddit IDTheory.
I could have held a grudge for indirectly making my work look unscientific. But in science a person has to get used to the science arena accidents that can happen, especially during a wedge war. Have to lick our wounds then get back into battle.
The universe likely always was and always will be, as in modern Cyclic Models. Big Bang Theory is wrongly believed to be suggesting energy came out of nowhere when the model uses math to squeeze the already existing energy into a tiny point in space then lets it go bang. Physicists including Albert Einstein have for decades been working on what happened before any "bang" or "whoosh".
You may have not known all this either, in which case everything you ever said about this was was wrong. You have to add all that to your list, for yourself. How long is that one?
I have to go by the percentage of time a person is right, and how they self-correct. In that case Neil is way ahead.
I'm also very much an Agnostic. In my case mostly because its founding father (Darwin's Bulldog) Thomas Huxley describing the methodology I was using, to write the 100% scientific ID theory. I have to be separate from the philosophical Theist versus Atheist arguments like "bad design" versus "good design" reasoning. Testable scientific grounds only. Agnosticism makes this easy:
Agnosticism is of the essence of science, whether ancient or modern. It simply means that a man shall not say he knows or believes that which he has no scientific grounds for professing to know or believe. Consequently, agnosticism puts aside not only the greater part of popular theology, but also the greater part of anti-theology. On the whole, the "bosh" of heterodoxy is more offensive to me than that of orthodoxy, because heterodoxy professes to be guided by reason and science, and orthodoxy does not. --- Thomas Huxley
Emerging Systems Biology led to an emerging Cognitive Biology and we all now need to understand cell intelligence, just to conceptualize how biological development works.
The biofilm in your toilet tank is now known to be wired up much like a brain. Bacterial cells grow their own long relatively high speed electrochemical communication pipelines, share genetic information too. I would not be surprised by some of them detecting our arrival then letting the rest know they just heard the seat go down, and prepare for another flush! While you thought you were all alone eh?
Being current in science as of 2023 is a whole new world view, where a theory that even Neil thought was impossible is no longer an issue. Became part of the science fun of Thomas Huxley level Agnosticism where there is a (scientific) method.
The scientific community putting all the thought they could into proving my hypotheses concerning "intelligent cause" to be false, is in a way like me using them to find out what can on scientific grounds be professed about such a thing. In turn helps to write the theory. The "scientific method" on steroids. No shame in that, at all. And I have to thank them, thank you.
Neil can roll his eyes and be thankful for the way it helped leave the past behind, while winning a wedge war with their own damn premise for a theory, using the same methodology Thomas Huxley was using by inviting heated debates with the best around. A traveling scientific arena, for before the communication age.
Agnosticism is this way destined have a very bright future. What it was, is now history.

Clot fell out of extraction site 7 days post op. Help.
Super scared about dry socket. Had this tooth pulled a week ago today. Been fine. Tonight while sitting on the couch, it began bleeding. I’ve noticed bits of clot coming out and can see a fat one just sitting in the hole. I had an extraction with a bone graft. I got the best picture I could. And i had the same tooth on the other side pulled around a month ago, no complications and no bone graft on this side. I’ve read that if you have a bone graft, your chances of a dry socket are a lot lower.
Fyi, when it began randomly bleeding, it did hurt. I did nothing to do, again, just sitting on the couch. Now I have the same gum irritation around it and trace blood, but no intense pain? Non-smoker. Don’t drink.

2023.06.03 06:25 Dj_acclaim Demo of my singing ability (or lack thereof) but mainly my songwriting skills

Write a song. After feedback on my writing ability mainly. I can handle my vocals in time with work. But it would be good know if there's potential.
Here's the lyrics. You Call me up on the cellphone It's nice to know how your day has gone I'm glad to hear that you've been having fun Even though I left like we're just said and done I'm feeling good I guess,Well probably just ok I've just been feeling like ,my head gets in my way Gotta stay present Gotta keep focused So I'll capture the real world In every moment It's good you've found a job Your making things work out I still wake up late, sometimes I don't leave the house But I'm still happy knowing that you're doing well. To find my heaven, I gotta push through hell.
But to say I haven't thought about it (💥💥) Wanting you back I know I can't turn around running on a straight track We gotta move forward (💥💥) and not let it crash Of course I've thought about it But i don't wanna talk about it no!
It's nice you're going out, seeing the world I just see myself, but I know I've seen worse Of course I love my job, but I just want some play Still need to find myself, through the nightclub haze See I know what I want but it's not easy to get it You know I've never been the type to just hit it and quit it Though I should just let go, but I'm too scared to admit it Don't wanna hit a rebound and just end up missing
But to say I haven't thought about it (💥💥) Wanting you back I know I can't turn around running on a straight track We gotta move forward (💥💥) and not let it crash Of course I've thought about it I don't wanna talk about it no!
Of course I've thought about you couldn't live without you Once upon a time you we're mine But I couldn't find Myself cause I was lost in all we had Caught up in the madness Of keeping life on track But I was falling off the rails Like Indiana Jones Trying to escape the heavy weight Of rocks and stones The bad thoughts and feelings weighing me down But now I'm free I feel I'm floating through clouds The weight has gone, but I still have thoughts The what ifs and buts are hooks they're keeping my caught Just gotta let go and be cool alone Cause the only way to find myself is on my own

Just got my PPSH 41 parts kit in the mail. Two problems. One and very obvious is the torch guy is a dick😂 now that that is out of the way, on to the latching hood.(bottom left part). I have never seen one like this. Through all pictures and videos of the gun I've seen I haven't seen a latching hood without a hole through it in the middle to make the "latching" work. Thoughts?

2023.06.03 06:23 pelicanfig Revision with lollipop/vertical method?

Hi all! I just had a consultation with a surgeon I sought out specifically because he was the only one in my area I could find that had pictures of patients with the lollipop/vertical method performed. During the consultation I told him this and he said he has mostly gone away from that and now prefers to do a traditional anchor reduction because he found that significantly more people with vertical reductions required revisions. Those of you who have had a vertical reduction, did you require a revision? Was it significant? Thanks!

2023.06.03 06:21 duhmbish Withdrawal symptom where the body can’t regulate temperature?

I ran out of my medicine 24 hours ago and needless to say I’ve been horrible. Other than the brain zaps and anxiety I’m having, is your body not knowing how to regulate its temperature a normal withdrawal symptom?
I am hot as hell…so I’m sweating enough to wake up to wet sheets and clothes….but I’m also shivering and freezing my ass off because of the sweat. Is that normal?!
Thankfully I got my medicine and I took it and I’m hoping I feel better tomorrow. But oh my god this is horrendous.

2023.06.03 06:20 sharkkite66 Thinking big picture, how to set dividend goals

So I'm new to dividend investing. I'm young so I throw a lot at more aggressive ETFs and stocks in my mix, but I still am shooting for having dividends and fixed income bringing in a regular cash flow for me.
That being said, I'm trying to think big picture when planning out my investments over the long term. This might not be a conventional way of looking at stocks but this is how my mind works.
So let's take SCHD for example, which let's say pays out a dividend of 3-4% annually. And that's on the somewhat higher end per my understanding. Right? So let's assume most good dividend paying stocks i would have pay out 1-2% annually. Let's say my portfolio averages out at 2% dividend payout per year. So, $100,000 invested would yeild $2,000 per year in dividends. To reach $1,000 a month, you would need $600,000 at that 2%.
2% is assuming no dividend growth, so obviously that is nice to factor in if you can. But this is an assume the worst hope for the best way of looking at things, that way I can be even more cautious and safe and then happy if things work out better.
Is this a terribly flawed way of looking at things, am I way off base or is this a decent way of looking at things: Setting an amount invested goal and a annual dividend yield based off that? What is a good "average" percentage of your investment coming back in dividends annually if you are considered a dividend investor? I set 2% but that's just a number I pulled out of my ass. I'm curious if anyone else thinks this way and what % they use as a baseline or goal.

2023.06.03 06:20 Buster1803 My best friend (22f) is too stressed / busy to meet with me (24m) before leaving the country for good. What can I do to support them and not take it personally?

My best friend (22f) is too stressed and busy to meet up with me (24m) before leaving the country for good. I need advice for supporting that - and not taking it personally
My best friend (22) is leaving the country next week and doesn’t seem to have time to meet with me (24) how can I ensure I best support them
My best mate is moving away in a little over a weeks time. We have been friends for a few years now and it’s mostly been online. They say they are stressed as hell and still have lots to do - despite gaming (but I think that’s as an escape from the stress)
I know it probably just means it’s not important to them like it is to me - but it’s hard not to take it personally - and because of this, it makes me more likely to need assurances. Which is pressure they don’t need
So how do I take this as ‘they just have different priorities’ and not ‘they don’t want to see me’
Also would it be bad to offer to get them a coffee. I jus kinda wanna give em a hug and see them one last time before they go - and that’s near no commitment compared to a day of hanging out.
I just don’t want to project this insecurity of ‘we won’t ever see each other again’ onto her. Especially not now when there’s clearly a lot more important things she has to be thinking about than me

Tank clarity difference
Recently made a small rack in my basement of 10’s and three of the four have terrible clarity. All four are cheap Aqueons I got on sale and the far left in person is crystal clear and the rest are not great. Has anyone else had a noticeable difference in glass? The picture shows it a little but can’t capture it clearly, at first I thought I had a water problem when only running two but once I got the other two going I figured out it’s the glass. Any easy way to fix to stop me from going crazy every time I look at them? I was thinking a black background might even it out. Sorry for the very amateunewbie set up

2023.06.03 06:18 massiveamphibianprod I'm looking for about 2 to 3ish players to help test my game I've been writing for awhile now.

-the setting is post apocalyptic and below is the books current summery for ya, my time zone is PDT and the preferred age range for testers is 18 to 25 but there is a bit of wiggle room.

-The core book for this Table Top Role Playing Game takes place within the united states of america during somewhere around 2045 about 20 years after the beginning of WW3 the war was started over a mixture of greed, paranoia and rising tensions over the years.
nearing the last few years of the war something weird happened suddenly something has collided with our world causing quickly appearing wormholes then eldritch creatures and cryptids from folklore started appearing slowly at first but suddenly they were becoming a new part of our ecosystem like a invasive species almost around the time of the first appearances is when earth was hit by a powerful solar burst from the sun and fried a lot of our electronics and cut off the world from each other.
When people were struggling from the wastes about a year after the solar burst slowly over a few months creatures from the wormholes appeared now called oxy nets or oxygen networks these weird animal fungal like beings that live within the breathing canals of animals and the root networks of forest started to become compatible with our worlds bio organisms being symbiotic with native flora and fauna.
In 2045 people regained some power and it's now similar to the era of the wild west if they had automatic guns, strange artifacts and limited tech like electricity and rarely computers.

-im planning on just a short one shot for the first test to make sure the basics of the game works including charter creation and you can leave whenever you like but there will be subsequent one shots and i highly encourage you to stress test the hell out of this game.
if you have experience in breaking games and there rules id love if you would do the same here so i can either patch it or have it as a actual play style/mechanic.

-fill out the form below in your comment or DM and ill get back to you about any questions and reports of if your invited to my discord for the test.
-if you help test the project i will put your name in the credits section if you'd like if not i will not name you specifically.

1-(preferred name/pronouns) 2-(age) 3-(relevant experience)[optional] 4-(days/times available) 5-(tell me about yourself)[optional]

2023.06.03 06:17 PrettyPisces83 How to deal with Ex who doesn't respect no contact

Almost a year ago I found out the guy I had been dating for over a year was cheating. The other girl contacted me and we met and talked it all out. We took a picture together of us flipping off the camera and sent it to him. The next day I changed more door locks (as he still had a key) and changed my key locker code.
Three weeks after that we had a bittersweet phone conversation where we aired everything out. We laughed and I felt like I understood him better. But as the conversation came towards the end I told him, "Unfortunately, we can't even end this relationship as friends. I don't trust you after what you did and although I wish good things for you I can't have you in my life. I will never call or text you again and I don't want you to ever contact me again." We hung up the phone and I started the healing process.
A month later he tried texting me acting like nothing happened and despite the urging of my best friend, I blocked his number without responding at all. My ex is a narcissist and after a bunch of reading and hindsight later, I realized that ANY response would be viewed as encouragement.
This past March (8 months later and just before my birthday) he requested to follow me on my private Instagram account and a few days later sent me private messages. I didn't respond and blocked him, hoping that would be the end of it.
But this past Monday, when I went to send a meme to my friend through FB messenger, I had a message request from my Ex. Again, I haven't responded but now I'm almost wondering if I should. I really wish he'd just leave me alone.
Going no contact was in my best interest and although our relationship was toxic, I learned a lot from it and don't regret it other than how it ended. Fortunately we don't live in the same city so I don't have to worry about running into him regularly.
I'm just curious what others would do. Part of me wants to break the no contact to tell him to leave me alone, but part of me wants to stand by what I said that I will never contact him again.

2023.06.03 06:16 UsefulCauliflower2 18F want to move out

Hi! I just graduated high school and I’m going to go somewhere to a school in my state to be an esthetician. I am growing up. And I’m sick and tired of living at home. I do have a job, I am an assistant manager at a pool. I also coach and I teach swim lessons. I’ve been at the same place working for just about 3 years now.
I am sick and tired of living at home, everyone around me is going to college. I just don’t think college is going to be for me, so that’s why I’m not going.Save me and my parents money.
I am tired of rules, keeping my room clean every single day, getting yelled at for the little things, my two younger sisters who I can’t stand with a passion, sharing a bathroom with them. And most importantly being forced to go to church every weekend.
I know it’s so much easier said than done but I need to live on my own, it’s becoming hell everyday, I don’t want a relationship with my siblings when I move out. And I don’t want to practice religion after I move out either. I don’t think I will have a car, the car I have now my parents technically own, so unless I would be able to get a loan I’m not sure I would be able to afford it.
Any advice is appreciated!
