Is everyone’s family weird and toxic like mine?

2023.03.30 12:38 TechnoLoli Is everyone’s family weird and toxic like mine?

My alcoholic dad left us even before I was born and we talked 5-6 times until his death. I’m 22 now. My mom could never be present in my life because she had to work overseas to provide for me and my sisters. I lived with my aunt and her family until my mom came when I was 16. I was sexually assaulted several times by my aunt’s son from the age 6-10. When I started living with my mother she was extremely toxic to me. She wanted me to study at the best university(I get why and understand it) but was very rude to me when I couldn’t get accepted to a uni of her liking. I used to get panic attacks during exams.She used to call me stupid and ugly, tell me not to come home if I don’t succeed and eventually kicked me out of the house. When i actually got accepted to the 1. University in our country we couldn’t pay the fees even with a discount which led her to be mad at me again. I feel like it affected me a lot, I’m very awkward and shy but have uncontrollable anger issues. Most of the people I know had toxic parents too. I feel like the world is just fucked up at this point

The Importance of Letting Go: Moving on From a Past Relationship and Forgetting Someone You Love
Moving on from a previous relationship can be difficult, especially when it involves someone you care about. It is, however, critical to let go of the past and focus on the present and future.

2023.03.30 12:33 AridBlue 24[M4F] Florida/anywhere - How are we going to tell our parents we met on Reddit?

About me!
- Location: Florida, USA
- Height: 6’2
- Education: Some college
-Occupation: Amazon
- Religious: Atheist
- Political Leanings: Liberal / Leftist. Social Democrat / Georgist if we’re being specific
- Physical appearance: Heres some Photos
- Interests: Reading, Fossil Hunting, Philosophy, Podcasts, Kayaking, Video Games, Exercising/ Fitness, Archery, Sports, Politics, History.
- Favorite color: Purple
- Favorite animal: The Red Panda or Raven
- Music Taste: Pretty much an enjoyer of everything from Rap and R&B to Punk Rock, Indie and alternative, Some Country and Blues, Jazz and even some Classical. I love it all!
- Drugs/alcohol? Socially drink
- Travel? Work keeps me from traveling more but I’ve been around.
For starters I’m a pretty quiet and introverted guy, I was always the kid that would sit in the back of the class and not peep a word. I will open up once I get to know you though, I’m often just in my own head. When I’m not at work which is most of my time as I work 10 hour days 5-6 days a week, I’m mostly in my room playing video games on my PC or reading whatever book I choose at the time or practicing my archery I’m mainly just a target shooter and not a hunter. I love to get out in the Florida weather and go kayaking or fossil hunting!
Though I like having spirited discussion about a variety of topics I also like watching tons of shows and movies! I love and quote too much from Game Of Thrones despite that crappy ending, I play tons of video games it’s by far my favorite pass time currently playing a ton of Crusader Kings and Halo infinite , but games like Mass Effect, RDR, The Witcher, and Fallout are some of my favs.
What I’m looking for:
I’m typically looking for someone who is down to earth, Ambitious, can laugh, joke and have a good sense of humor and has a lot of the same interests as me! Not saying we have to be exactly the same but I’m also looking for someone who doesn’t need me to be their whole personality but two halves to a whole. I also like it if the girl is a bit more outgoing just to be the yin to my yang as I can be quite shy and quiet.
I’m not saying looks aren’t important they are but I’m much bigger on personality! The only thing I care about as far as looks go is I’m looking for someone that takes care of themselves and their health! You don’t have to be a greek god or anything.
That’s pretty much everything for me! Sorry for the essay!
If you’re interested feel free to chat or message… I Hope to hear from you!

2023.03.30 12:32 KittenDealinMama I don’t know how to tell my dad that my step mom hates me (New Update)

This is a new update on a story that has been shared here previously.
Originally posted by u/unfair_impact_1400 in relationship_advice on July 21, '22, updated August 8th, September 5th.
Newer updates, marked with 🔴🔴🔴, on Sept 27th, Dec 2nd, Dec 6th, Dec 28th and Jan 31, '23.
I (17m) don’t know how to tell my dad (32m) that my step mom (37f) hates me
Hey this might be long one I’m sorry. There is a TLDR at the bottom. I really don’t know what to do about my situation and I don’t have anyone close to give me advice so I thought here I can maybe get some advice. I have an amazing dad who raised me since my mom passed away when I was 5 years old. He is my friend, my supporter and someone who I want to be like when I grow up.
When my dad first introduced my step mom to me I was 10 years old and she was very nice to me and he looked so happy that we met and hoped we could get along. They got married when I was 13 and I was so happy that me and my dad had a new member in our family. I thought me and SM were getting along until I think a few months after their honeymoon she told me one morning that we just need to pretend to like each around my dad but when he is not here that I shouldn’t bother her, honestly this shattered me but I agreed cause I didn’t know what else to do.
After that day whenever it was just me and SM she would say things to get to me and I would just not say anything. I’m introverted and don’t like confrontation so I just took it and thought overtime she would get over it but it got worse. She would talk about my height and weight and say I was funny looking version of my dad. I hoped my dad would notice but he didn’t, he actually thinks me and SM are so close and she understands me. He looks so happy with her that i maybe its worth not saying anything and giving it time.
This year my SM has started picking on me around my dad and he has either joined in or ignored it. I have voiced that what she says makes me uncomfortable and hurts but my dad says she is teasing and doesn’t mean it to hurt me. Well right now I’m at my ends and I’m scared I’m angry, frustrated at my SM and my dad. Dad was away for work and it was just me and SM at home, she had a party at home with a couple of her friends. I helped set the house up and cook dinner cause dad asked me to help out which was fine. After they ate and just hung out they were hanging out on the porch when I heard SM and her friends talk very loud outside my window while I was in my room. SM friends talked about how lucky SM was to have a nice husband and a house, when they mentioned how nice it was that I cooked for them SM told them that I was annoying and weird and she hated me and living with me and couldn’t wait till I was 18 to kick me out. I was shocked that she hated me that much but I didn’t know why? tbh I thought we were tolerating each other but to hate me I must of done something but I can’t think of what I did
I’ve been kinda down since that day which was 2 weeks ago and I thought I was pass the initial feelings but at rugby training today I bursted into tears and my coach sent me home so I drove to a beach and cried I was feel so much I honestly can’t describe my emotions, I eventually fell asleep in my car, now I’m here hoping I can get advice on how to talk to my dad about it, cause I’m scared about how he will react. I don’t want my dad to be sad cause he does so much for me but I’m not strong like him, I’m really struggling.
My question is, How can I approach this conversation with my dad about my SM hating me? Or should I tell him at all?
TLDR I heard my SM tell her friends she hates me, and I want to tell my dad about it but don’t know how.
Edit: someone questioned my dads age and I’m sorry but it was supposed to be 42 but I can’t change it sorry
Thank you everyone that provided advice and kind words, It means a lot to me I have read every comment and have an idea on how to approach this situation. Im honestly terrified of the outcome being negative but the encouragements and support are making this a bit easier to deal with.
I am going to talk to my dad on Sunday and show him this post, I hope it goes well and I hope all of you stay safe and take care.
Edit 2: I’m not sure what I am able to do what I planned cause Amy just took my car keys away and she wants my phone but I won’t give it to her so she is waiting for my dad to take take it off me because apparently I’m doing drugs but I told her I’m not I’ve been at the beach. Im not sure but I just want it to stop cause I can’t handle it I’m sorry
Ok so my post was locked but hopefully it’s ok now I’ve posted the link and tried my best with spacing (I’m on mobile) if I can’t post it I give up
For all the support and advice received, I really appreciate and wholeheartedly so grateful for all who dm me to see how I was, thank you.
This will be long cause a lot has happened but many things are still not resolved. TRIGGER WARNING i will mention self harm, so please if it might trigger you pls don’t read further
I wish I was able to say I followed the advice that was provided and now everything is better but some things in life don’t play the way we want it to and we can either let it destroy us or make us better.
After writing my edit where my SM was taking my things away and assuming I was on drugs I started recording on my phone and she said a lot through the door, many things about my mom and me, and just plain hateful words that I don’t want to repeat on here. I fell asleep while I was barricading the door with my body when my dad demanded me to open the door, at this point I don’t remember much of what happened but my SM told me I had to leave the house and my dad agreed. I didn’t know who to call but I decided to call my coach and he picked me up, and I was a crying mess. He didn’t ask any question but just told me that I was safe and if I need to talk he was here for me, I stayed over one night when the next day, dad picked me up, SM was not at home when we got there. Dad told me we needed to talk.
We had breakfast and my dad spoke to me about many things my SM told him and I couldn’t believe all the lies she told him. It was a long talk but in summary it was:
My use of drugs and alcohol
How I disrespect her in our home
I don’t do my responsibilities like chores at home
I’m nasty to her when Dad is not around
He asked me why I was acting like this and if I had a problem with SM I should’ve spoke to him. I let him talk and when he was crying and asked if I had anything to say. I was so lost for word I knew whatever I said my dad was on my SM side. So I told him I wanted him to watch the recording of the incident that I can send through as an email attachment and the link to my reddit post and than we can talk more, I also said I didn’t want to be here when he was reading and watching so I’ll go for a drive and he can txt me when he’s done and ready to talk. He was hesitant at first but I told him it was important to me so he agreed and I left in my car to the beach and sent the email with the video attached and the link to my reddit post.
I don’t know how long I waited but many thoughts were going through my head, I was missing my mom so much and what if my dad still sided with my SM what can I do now? I fell asleep at the beach spot and was woken up by a police officer knocking on my car door and asking for my name, after confirming my name he advised me to get out my car and to hand over my keys to him and to follow him to his car, he handcuffed me and assured me that I wasn’t in trouble but this was a welfare check cause someone made a call that I was possibly suicidal, I didn’t talk after he told me that and all I remember was just crying. He made me sit in the back of the police car until the ambulance came and they took me to the hospital. I was asked many questions and was evaluated and was told I was depressed and may have extreme anxiety. The physician did say I might have other things but will require further testing and some sessions with a psychiatrist.
My dad came and visited me while in hospital and when I saw him he looked really tired. When he spoke it sounded like he was crying and he told me he called the police on me because the video recording I did, he heard everything my SM said but he also saw my cuts on my thighs and was scared and thought the worst. Honestly I never watched the video so I didn’t know my thighs were visible.
After our cry we spoke about a few things. I told my dad that I don’t feel comfortable living with SM after everything she said and done to me over the years, and I’m not sure I can handle being around her cause I don’t trust her. We spoke about arrangements and knowing my dad still loves my SM and I didn’t want him to choose between us, i told him that I could talk to Coach if I could stay with him, and after calling him he agreed. I’ve also been admitted to an agency that will support me cause I am mentally unwell. I have been to 1 session and waiting on another evaluation to be done on me and some testings with my GP so they can diagnose me.
I’m currently staying with my rugby coach who has been an amazing pillar. He has set out some house rules but I respect the fella and don’t mind following them. My coach even set a date next week for me and dad to catch up on. My coach is an awesome dude, I thought of him as just a coach who just wanted our rugby team to win but when he allowed me to stay over he showed so much care for me and I saw a side to him and understand how much he cares for my team, he has a lovely wife but I’m kinda anxious whenever it’s just me and her at their house.
That’s it right now, my dad lives at home with my SM and is trying to sort that out. I have many appointments to get the help I need and alot of school work to catch up on and rugby trainings to attend. I’ve taken a leave of absence from my maccas job. I’m gonna miss going to the beach for a while but I understand that it’s not a forever thing so I hope that the next time I go there I’m not crying my eyes out. Im kinda working on being ok if my dad and SM after those of you who shared your similar experiences, some day I’ll be ok.
Thank you all who advised me and encouraged me. Those who reached out through DM, thank you for the kind words and reaching out. I’m not sure if I’ll update again but maybe I’ll let you know if something happens in the future.
Take care everyone, also be kind to one another and most of all be kind to yourself cause you deserve it
TLDR i showed my dad my reddit post and recording of my SM being verbally abusive and now I’m staying at my coaches house trying to sort out my mental health
2nd Update I (17m) don’t know how to tell my dad (42m) that my step mom (37f) hates me
Hope everyone has been doing well.
I wasn’t going to update at all but many who reached out shared there stories and kind words it truely helped me. I wish I was able to reply but so many things were happening and I’m sorry. This will be a long one but it’s because this will be the last time I hope.
In my last post my coach sorted out time for me and my dad to catch up weekly I have met up with my dad twice and this is how it went
First catch up at the beach
We spoke and I told him alot about what happened between me and his wife. I mention how she would treated me when he wasn’t there, what she spoke to me after they got married and how she was awful to live with. I told him how I dealt with it for his sake cause I wanted him to be happy. I mentioned to him that I spoke with coach about staying there until I go to university and than I’ll move away cause I cannot live with his wife anymore cause I’m not sure what ill do. I’m never going to try and get along with her anymore. He listened and was crying and asked if I would ever get over this. I told him no and I never wanted to see his wife and walked off cause I was pissed off at what he said and drove back to the coaches house.
He messaged me later I was acted like a kid, and I responded Cause I am a kid.
2nd Catch up Dinner at the coaches house
Second catch up my coach invited my dad to have dinner and hang with me (my coach has a pool table in his man cave and a pool) I was excited to hang and catch up with my dad even after our last meet up cause I was feeling a bit better, but at the same time I was feeling anxious about the meet up like I had a bad gut feeling, but I ignored it. Dinner went great and me, dad and coach had fun playing pool, later on that night coach gave us space to talk.
Dad talked about my mom and me as a kid, just things he would tell me when I was a kid and it was just me and him, it was fun and I really enjoyed our time together. When it was time to go home I offered to drop him off since he drank but he said his wife was here to pick him up so I hugged him and he went I kinda stayed in the garage and waited for her to leave so I could walk in the house but I heard her say “How’s the little shit?” And I bolted out the door and told her to fuck off, boy was I not ready for the slap my dad gave me but all I remember was swinging a punch at him and knocking him down and my coach pulling me off my dad.
My coach told my dad and his wife to leave. After they left I told my coach I never wanted to see him again and txted my dad we were done.
It doesn’t end there.
Last week I planned to not go to school on Friday and go for a drive up the line with a few team mates to just get away from everything, they ended up bailing so I went by myself. I ended up driving to a lake and parking up and just chilling for the school day and just drive back home later on. When I got home at my coaches house I saw my dads car parked in the driveway and thought I would have to square up with my dad. When I parked up my dad ran out the house and looked like shit, he looked like he cried for days and he started hitting my car screaming to get out the car and tell him where I was the whole day. I thought he was mad that I wagged school so he ripped the door open and hugged me so hard and cried, I had no idea what was happening or what he was saying but all could understand was I’m sorry and I love you.
After what felt like forever he kinda calmed me down and I asked him why was he here, and than he told me there was an accident with a kid getting hit by a train, and it clicked my dad thought it was me. He said when he heard the news he called the school and they said I was a no show and called everyone he could think of, my mates said I went for a drive somewhere but didn’t know where and my dad said he lost it.
He calmed down eventually and said he would divorce his wife if I wanted him to but I told him, he needed to choose that for himself cause the reason I stayed quiet was to make him happy, if he is unhappy to make a choice for himself cause I don’t want to be the reason he is unhappy and that now I have to look after myself and that is getting away from her and he cried and just said more sorry’s.
He ended up sleeping over in the same room as me that night and the night after cause I think he was scared and just trying to deal, I was ok with it and coached allowed it
He left after the weekend to sort himself out back at his home. I told him that where I am is good for me and to not worry and that I’ll turn off Do Not Disturb on my phone so I could see txts.
That’s pretty much it really, I don’t know what my dad is going to decide to do with his wife but I am definitely not ever going to associate with her, ever in the foreseeable future. I love my dad too much to stop seeing him but he knows my boundaries since I’ve set them out clear as day and he knows as much as I love him I will cut him off if I feel like it’s not for me. I’m moving pass what happened between me and my dads wife for me cause I’m tired of letting her beat me in my mind so I just gotta work on me.
I’m currently happy staying with my coach and his wife, they have been amazing and have shown me so much love. They have awesome kids who I have met and they have invited me to they family Christmas. I feel bad that I feel anxious when I’m around coaches wife but I’m working on it with my therapist and I have a good support system. I know I want to go to University but not sure if I want to study Commerce or Law, but I know i am on track with my studies, I just can’t afford to skip anymore school.
Thank you to everyone who sent messages of support and reached out to share your experiences. Y’all gave me the strength to believe I could get out of this mess and be ok.
And if you ever feel down that there is help out there for you no matter where you are in life. I’m glad I shared on Reddit cause I’ve learnt so much about me and many things I won’t forget and teach to my kids.
Now I gotta go school
Take care and cheers

I hate that my current reality is that I don’t have people I can rely on right now in my life
I am trying to do the best to survive and better my current situation.
I’ve had so much happen to me this year and I feel like I can’t afford to take time for me, to catch a break or else I’ll lose what I currently have which is not much.
I know I’m young and have so much to look forward to but it’s hard, like so hard to want to carry on when so much shit is going wrong.
I’m trying to find a place to stay even a flatmate situation to be more independent but I can barely afford anything. My job offered me a better paying position at the expense of full time bourse and even though I would love more money that means I will have to give up my dream to go university.
I know many people have had worse situations and honestly I don’t know how they found the will and help they got. It really feels like the world just hates me and I know I’m feeling sorry for myself but I honestly giving up hope

What can I get the family I’m staying with for Christmas?
Dec 28th in advice
I (18m) feel indifferent about catching up with my Dad (42m) I (18m) have a strained relationship with my Dad (42m) . A lot has happened this year between us and it really ruined our relationship. He was my best friend, would be there for my rugby matches and push me to do my best.
Earlier this year I had a fall out with my step mom and my dad which caused me to move out of my home and in with my Coach (37m) who I call uncle; I have been here ever since.
We did try to mend our relationship but harsh words were exchanged and I stopped reaching out and focused on passing my exams. I have worked hard on myself by working at my job and helping out at the place I’m staying. I have made some sort of peace about my situation and focusing on my future.
Now my dad reached out last night to meet up with him to hang and we planned it for next year on the 4th of Jan, I agreed and that was that. My uncle talked to me about what me and my dad spoke about, he is kinda worried about my feelings about meeting my dad because of my feelings towards the day. I explained the best I could, is that I just feel indifferent about my dad right now. I am not excited nor scared about this meeting, I just see it as a date I’ll be seeing him and that’s it. Whether we meet up or not I’m not bothered by it at all.
My uncle and his wife care a lot and have done so much for me so I care about what they say. They think I should have a reason to meet up with him since I haven’t spoken to him in a while and worried I could get hurt. Should I have a different mindset towards the catch up with my dad?
TLDR: Dad planned a catch up next year for me and him, we had a fall out so my uncle thinks that I should be feeling something but I feel indifferent.
A commenter asks how it went
Reply on Jan 31, 23
Ok this reply took a while because I wasn’t ready to share but I’m ok for now.
My dad turned up with SM and told me that they were having a kid, I congratulated them and we spent time talking about my future and dad telling me he can pay for my university studies as long as I keep my grades up. We spoke about a lot and than we said our goodbyes and I left. I wasn’t able to drive home cause I started crying and had to call my uncle to come pick me up.
It’s been a few weeks since the meeting and now I’m not sure about my feelings about everything but focusing on getting ready for uni so I’m working alot more. My uncle and me are planning to go check out his other house that was affected by floods so that’s something to look forward too cause I need a change of scenery.
Thanks for checking on me it means alot
You'll do well OP. Go out there and be successful for yourself. Your uncle and wife are really a gem. Thats a couple you need to return the favour or love one day. So hv you decided what major you will do in uni?
OP: Most definitely. They are honestly the best support I have and I am forever grateful to them both for sharing their home, family and love. Sometimes I wonder why they do it and they always remind me it’s cause they care and love me which means a lot.
For uni I am going for a Bachelors in Commerce, majoring in Commercial Law and Accounting. Very excited about it and looking forward to it. It will take some years but that’s ok for me right now
The father is not leaving the stepmom and OOP is working to move forward. I'm flairing this concluded
Reminder, DO NOT comment on the original posts or contact the original poster. I am not the original poster. This is a repost.

2023.03.30 12:30 SnooComics3578 What are the 5 major causes of intellectual disabilities?

Significant limitations in intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviour are symptoms of intellectual disability. It has an impact on a person's capacity for learning, communicating, and carrying out daily tasks. There are many possible causes of intellectual disability, such as genetic, environmental, and health-related problems. We'll talk about the five main reasons for intellectual disabilities in this article.
Genetic factors:
Genetic factors play a significant role in the development of intellectual disabilities. Genetic abnormalities like Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, and Prader-Willi syndrome are known to cause intellectual disability. These conditions result from genetic mutations or chromosomal abnormalities.
Prenatal factors:
Prenatal factors can also contribute to intellectual disability. Maternal exposure to toxins, drugs, and alcohol during pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome or other developmental disorders. Infections like rubella, cytomegalovirus, and toxoplasmosis during pregnancy can also result in intellectual disabilities.
Perinatal factors:
Perinatal factors refer to events that occur during childbirth. Oxygen deprivation or trauma during childbirth can result in intellectual disabilities. Premature birth or low birth weight can also cause intellectual disabilities.
Postnatal factors:
Postnatal factors can contribute to intellectual disabilities in children. Head injuries, infections like meningitis or encephalitis, and lead poisoning are common postnatal factors that can lead to intellectual disabilities.
Environmental factors:
Environmental factors like malnutrition, poverty, and lack of stimulation can also contribute to intellectual disabilities. Children who grow up in poverty-stricken areas may not have access to good nutrition or proper healthcare, which can impact their development. Lack of stimulation can also affect brain development in children.
Individuals with intellectual disabilities can lead fulfilling lives with the aid of occupational therapy. The goal of occupational therapy is to support patients in carrying out daily tasks and contributing to society. Numerous occupational therapy clinics in Ajman provide services to people with intellectual disabilities. These clinics help people acquire the skills they need to be independent and lead fulfilling lives by utilising evidence-based therapies.
The Speech Therapy Center in UAE can also be found in clinics that use a holistic approach to therapy. Holistic therapy focuses on the individual as a whole, taking into account their physical, emotional, and social needs. These clinics use various therapies like sensory integration therapy, play therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help individuals with intellectual disabilities.
In conclusion, intellectual disabilities can be caused by various factors, including genetic, environmental, and health-related issues. Occupational therapy can help individuals with intellectual disabilities lead fulfilling lives by helping them develop the skills they need to be independent. If you or someone you know is struggling with an intellectual disability, seek the help of an occupational therapist in Ajman or Sharjah to get the support you need.

2023.03.30 12:27 UnderstandingOk2399 Bipolar and alcoholism

First off I wouldn’t consider myself an alcoholic because I don’t drink every day or even every other day. More like twice a week I guess but when I drink, I drink too much. Lately I’ve been drinking so much I throw up every time. You’d think I’d learn but I keep doing it. I hate myself for it. I don’t know if it’s connected to bipolar or I’m just stupid and don’t know how to control myself. I will say I drink more when hypomanic/manic because I feel good and don’t care about consequences. How do I stop this cycle? I’m so scared of this problem turning into real alcoholism

2023.03.30 12:23 StarkWines Start Using These Fantastic Wine Tips Today

Start Using These Fantastic Wine Tips Today
Are you hesitant when it comes to choosing a bottle? Are you aware of the differences between Merlot and Burgundy? If you’re lost when picking wine, you need to expand your wine knowledge. The following information can help.
Store wine properly to maintain its flavor. Any wine can be negatively affected by temperatures outside its optimal range. The best temperature for storing your wine is around 55 degrees. If you have a cool basement, it is perfect for storing wine. You can also purchase a wine refrigerator for this purpose.
TIP! Attend all the wine tastings you can. They’re fun and can help you discover new tastes.
An amazing sauce for any beef dish can be made using wine. To make the sauce, just add a pat of butter to your preferred red wine in a saucepan. Simmer the sauce while it thickens and evaporates a little of the alcohol content. You should then drizzle your sauce over your beef dish.
All cheap wine isn’t bad. Chile is one great region for affordable wine options. A lot of their wines have a reasonable price. Cabernet Sauvignons and Sauvignon Blancs are especially tasty from this part of the world. Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa also offer great prices on great wines.
TIP! When you store your wine properly, you enhance the flavor it can produce. Temperatures that are really cold or hot may damage any kind of wine that you may be storing.
To make the most of each glass of wine, make sure you serve it up at its optimum temperature. Red wines are best when they are served at about 60 degrees. The wine will warm up in the glass, and you should pour into the glass at about 58 degrees. White wines need to be served at approximately 47 degrees. If it is served warmer, it may result in a dull tasting wine.
Never allow a sulfite warning to alarm you. There are sulfites in all wines, but distributors in America are the only ones required to put it on the labels. Sulfites have the ability to trigger allergies in some, though if you have never had a problem with them, you need not worry.
TIP! Buy yourself a wine cellar in order to maintain your wines properly over time. This can really be important when you spend a lot of money on a wine and you wish to have some later on.
Not all white wines should be chilled when served. Every white wine is not the same texture, so they may be better served at different temperatures. While serving saugvignon blanc cold is best, serving chardonnay and pinot gris taste better a bit warmer.
Sparkling wines and champagnes must be served very cold. The flavor is enhanced the colder it is, and it will not taste the same at room temperature. Put champagne in a refrigerator one or two hours before drinking it.
TIP! Cheap wines are not necessarily a bad choice. If you want to find wine that tastes great and costs less, give Chilean wines a try.

Wine country is a place to visit if you have a passion for wine. You will really appreciate your wine more if you get to be where it grows and ferments. It is also an educational experience about the business and process of making wine. Therefore, your visit can be both fun and educational.
Now that you’ve gone through this article, enjoying wine should be a lot easier. Keep this advice handy whenever you take a shopping trip to buy wine. This way, you can refer back to it when you are confronted by endless rows of wine bottles. Using these tips can help you select the perfect bottle.

2023.03.30 12:18 Rupertfromfg I have a minor drinking problem

TW: substance abuse, suicide
It started fairly recently, but basically when life bends me over and assfucks me sufficiently, I’ll be spiralling terribly and just take a shot of like gin and it’ll make me feel much better (it’s 25% alcohol content, I feel like a lot of it could be adrenaline doing it’s thing). I have a family history of addiction and I’m just worried I could very quickly spiral. I’ve been drinking like every other day for about a week or two, but haven’t had anything since Monday. I’m worried because I also have a history of suicidal behaviour, and so I’m scared that when something bad enough happens, and I’m drunk enough, I’ll just throw myself onto the street and end it all. Advice would be welcome, sorry for ranting.

There are some dental care solution for everyone.

  2. Floss daily: Flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from between your teeth and under your gumline. Use a gentle back-and-forth motion to clean between each tooth.
  3. Use mouthwash: Mouthwash can help freshen your breath and kill bacteria that cause bad breath and gum disease. Choose an alcohol-free mouthwash for best results.
  4. Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks: Foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid can erode your tooth enamel and lead to cavities. Limit your consumption of sugary drinks and snacks, and drink plenty of water to help wash away harmful bacteria.
  5. Visit your dentist regularly: Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist can also identify any potential problems early on and provide treatment before they become more serious.

2023.03.30 12:10 Amorfatimeraki Overwhelmed with questions

This will be a semi-long post as what I'm feeling is overwhelmed with everything Saxenda and weight loss related.
I started at 99 kilos (218 lbs) in January and began Saxenda on 19 February. My current weight is 94kg (207 lbs), hovering a bit towards 94.75 and its been stuck there for 2 weeks now.
When I began, I felt the appetite disappear and found it easy to eat less. I'm in a weight loss program where I work with a dietician, lifestyle coach and doctor, along with my general practitioner who all support and monitor the progress. My dietician highly recommends a plant based diet which I've tried with her before. I was an excellent candidate for Saxenda; when I first worked with my dietician, following the plant based diet and working out, I only lost the first kilo after 4 months. In addition, I have chromic asthma, severe sleep apnea and my body mimics PCOS symptoms but it was ruled out multiple times. Thus why my doctor thought Saxenda would be good for me.
When I got to the dosage of 2.4mg, it felt like my body turned against me. The nausea hit massively and I couldn't get out of bed for days. The doctor had me toggle back to 1.6mg where I stayed for 2 weeks and made my way towards 2.4mg and where this stall is happening.
I'm trying not to be too worried about the stall but I want to make the best of my Saxenda journey which is why I have a few questions.
Working out: I have yet to work out; I try to get at least 5000 steps a day; some days I get 3000 and others I'll make it to 10,000 easily depending on what I'm doing. The thing is, I've seen a lot of people mention fatigue whilst on Saxenda. This has been extreme for me. I'm already fatigued because of my asthma and sleep apnea; I'm seeing specialists for both and thats a journey within itself. Getting to a healthy weight would obviously help these conditions as well but I am finding it counterintuitive to work out when I'm so fatigued, brain fogged and dizzy a lot of the time.
I am also having problems with low blood sugar episodes. After eating, I've seen it dip down to 4.5 mmol/L or 81.08 mg/dL which isn't too low but the symptoms I feel are. I fainted on the metro the other day and once I ate something sweet and salty, the symptoms disappear. I've already mentioned it to my doctor but she wants me to push through and start working out.
How much to eat in a day? My dietician doesn't want me to calorie count which I find counterintuitive as well because wouldn't I need to make sure I'm in a deficit otherwise using Saxenda is pointless? I've used the Sail Rabbit BMTDEE calculator to figure out my numbers but it is so overwhelming! To lose a kilo a week, it says my calorie intake should be 1275 with an additional 500 to lose through exercise. Without exercise calories, it recommends 775 which I know is too little.
In regards to what I eat:
Breakfast: oatmeal with seeds, fiber powder, plant based milk and half an apple.
Lunch: 2 slices of whole wheat bread with a tofu scramble (sometimes egg whites and yes I know this is not plant based), with hummus and homemade salsa.
In between that meal I'll have the other half of the apple, a mandarin, 2 brazil nuts and maybe a cracker or two when I'm feeling dizzy.
Dinner varies but once in a while I'll have fish (again, I know not plant based but she is okay with me doing), or a meal based on beans, tofu or tempeh with lots of vegetables.
I've cut out meat completely, no sweets or chocolates after dinner, I don't drink alcohol and I don't eat past 8PM.
I feel like with doing all of this, the progress should be moving more but I just want to know what others think or have a similar experience?
So I'm asking the community: are you working out and how are you doing so? and How much do you eat in a day and if you track calories or not?

2023.03.30 12:03 fleurette_africaine I just quit!

I wasn’t planning to…kratom helped me quit drinking alcohol and seemed like the lesser of two evils, so I was quite happy with it. I’ve now started on Wellbutrin, and while I’ve seen people here saying they take both with no problem, my body didn’t like it. I think the effects on norepinephrine was the issue. Heart palpitations, feelings of dread, shakiness. I tried to force it for about 3 days before finally saying fuck it. I’m nervous, not drinking alcohol or using kratom. So used to having a crutch to fall back on when I’m stressed, but I want to be on Wellbutrin more. It helps with pmdd brain fog and irritability (surprisingly), and is already helping me lose stubborn weight. I just dumped all my k out tonight. I’m as ready as I’ll ever be! 🤞🏼
Side note: has anyone lost weight after quitting? It seems to affect more people by suppressing appetite but I ate a lot while using. It would make me a bit queasy so I’d instinctively start munching to settle my stomach.

2023.03.30 11:57 peachesandpigeons I am a mess.

I’ve been browsing this sub for awhile and I have been going through brief periods of not drinking for years but I always fall and go back hard. At the start of this year I lost my favorite job because I was drunk at work after they gave me many chances to get better because it surely wasn’t the first time it happened. Needless to say I got fired and I immediately admitted myself into an inpatient rehab because I always told myself I would if I lost this job. After I got out I had two months alcohol free and thought I was doing great and then some personal shit happened and I spiraled out of control, hurt myself and got arrested for my second DUI. I don’t even know what the point of this post is but it’s just wild to me that no matter how much we hate the bullshit we get ourselves into with this condition we still get tempted to go back and drink. I’ve upset so many friends and I’m always apologizing because I truly am sorry I keep doing this shit and they have to watch me self destruct but obviously it doesn’t look like I am actually sorry to them because I keep doing what I shouldn’t be doing. I guess I’m just venting here but it makes me feel like a psycho. I don’t recognize the person I see in the mirror anymore.

2023.03.30 11:57 Hentai_God1001 what your opinion on non gas powered car?

What you think about non gas powered car? Like ev and stuff like that or the latest one hydrogen powered car? In my opinion ev is just as dirty as gas powered car because of the crap you need to make the battery,chip,etc that needs to be made separately from multiple different rare resources that involves dirty mining industry and the battery life span and how it's end up as toxic junk,rather than making ev and hydrogen powered car why not convert gas powered engine into ethanol or common alcohol powered car?

I decided to repaint an old leather bag today but I forgot to check the label of the Angelus paint remover and deglazer (ingredients acetone and ethyl alcohol) my hands were heavily exposed for like 10 minutes (I tried using gloves but it broke the gloves. 5 minutes into working I wore mask but the smell was much awful. I know it is my fault for not reading the label. I went through a seminar recently wherein the trainer said the deglazer is safe to use however, I forgot that I am using a different brand this time. I am extremely worried, so I would like to ask if you can avoid rude comments pls. I know I am at fault. Just wanted to know if someone else has been exposed and still had a healthy baby?

Trip Report
So we were 3 people and i took 2 bhang gola and my other 2 friends smoked 2 J's each and we started Third eye meditation and we all three had out of the body experience. It was like our soul has left the body and we 3 were able to see each others body after that we felt lord shiva's presence he kept his trishul on our third eye area (between eyebrows) our soul left our body again and we were traveling in space with the speed of light and we were very close to leaving the dimension but then lord shiva said that your (we all 3) brain is not yet evolved to leave this dimension and we went back to our body and had a very bad 5 min headache and we slept.
And after this trip we all 3 are motivated all the time idk why and our urge to smoke cig or to drink alcohol has gone to 0 we have become so productive and goal driven idk how,why,what has happened.

I decided to change my major and work hard on becoming a clinical psychologist (as I always wanted), I create more than ever, I found a special person that makes me doubt my antinatalism..hope I'm on the right path.
It might be off topic or maybe I'm bragging, but I wanted to share this with a community that embraced me.
Hope you guys are doing well. Stay strong. Cheers!
