DIY odyssey key fob programming

2023.06.06 17:58 HardlyStrictlyCrabby DIY odyssey key fob programming

Hi folks!
I see a few threads on this, but nothing looked super helpful.
That dreaded moment has arrived where I’ve lost one of my key fobs. Honda dealer quotes near me are $350-$430 dollars including key fob, emergency key, and labor. I will pay this to make sure I get this done right, but I also want to explore the DIY option. Local locksmith quoted $250 FYI.
Does anyone have experience purchasing blank key fobs and self programming? (Bonus: tips for DIY emergency keys). I’ve seen some links that offer a set of instructions to do it yourself within your car, and some companies selling a DIY programming kit (I’m not touching those).
If anyone has helpful advice to get started I’d be very appreciate and will give back to the community by reporting my experience.

2023.06.06 17:57 inmanywaysitis I love toddlers/babies but get really irritated by older kids. Will this get better when mine are older?

I'm pregnant and I have an almost-3-year-old. I've always really liked kids in general, but now that I have a toddler I find myself getting really irritated by older grade school kids, maybe ages 8-10. They didn't bother me very much before, but a few situations I've been in lately re: my toddler that have really made me feel negatively toward this age (and I wish I didn't feel this way!) I know this is the reverse of the norm, which is "I really hated the baby/toddler stages but kids are so fun once they get to be more independent!" so just imagine that but unfortunately the other way around.
Now, obviously kids this age are still kids and should be given some grace...and maybe I'm being too hard on them. But I feel like I'm constantly guarding my toddler from them, whether they're scaring him off with loud screaming, running past him (and once trampling him when he was only 18 months old), etc....I just feel so negatively about them right now and I hate that because of course I hope MY kids grow to be 9, 10, 11, etc...and I want to love them just as much as I do now!
Another thing that worries me is that one of my favorite parts about being a mom is the snuggles, reading books together, kissing their cheeks, and I assume all of that is going to be really unappealing when he's 9. Are there other, equally rewarding things it gets replaced with, or does he just lose interest in me? lol. I know that sounds pathetic, but I can't help but worry.

2023.06.06 17:55 Ztaxas Have AC company reimburse bill from another company after they caused damages?

[Florida] I make a house call to AC company 1 to have my AC checked, there are no issues found with it, later that Friday night my AC doesn't cool so I call company 2 to have it fixed next morning (company 1 was REALLY pushy about getting a "service subscription" and getting a new AC unit when they stated mine was fine so I wanted nothing to do with them), company 2 fixes the issue (refrigerant was drained) and charged me $670, I contact company 1 hoping for a reimbursement but they staunchly deny saying it is "impossible" for the refrigerant to have leaked, we communicate for a few day and eventually I figure out what caused the refrigerant to leak, so I have pictures and videos proving how it can be done plus a statement from company 2 about something they did that lead to this.

Company 1 is still refusing and I want to take them to the small claims court, however they have this stipulated in the contract bill.

Contractor warrants that all labor and materials shall be free of defects for one (1) . All warranty work must be done by Contractor.
Customer will not be compensated for work done by other companies. All warranty work shall be
done during normal business hours (8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. weekdays). Customer will be charged for warranty work done other than normal
business hours. The foregoing warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, of
whether written, oral or implied (including any warranty of merchant ability or fitness for purpose). The warranty provided in this paragraph
and the obligations and liabilities of contractor hereunder are exclusive and in lieu of and
customer hereby waives all other remedies, warranties, guarantees or liabilities, expressed or implied, arising by law or otherwise (including
without limitation any obligations of contractor with respect to fitness, merchantability and
consequential damages) or whether or not occasioned by contractor’s negligence. This warranty shall not be extended, altered or varied
except by a written instrument signed by the contractor’s president and customer. The
foregoing warranty will not be honored if the customer has not timely paid all accounts Customer has had with Contractor. “Consequential
damages” as used herein shall include Customer’s time missed from work for which
Contractor shall not be liable.

The way I see it, company 1 is still responsible for damages, but now I'm wondering if this is legally binding and what are my options?

2023.06.06 17:55 SeramaSardines Losing the love of your life

Can anyone tell me how after a year of being together how someone can just ghost you for no reason for days?
Me (f27) we did everything together we were open about everything and our relationship was near perfect. He just walked out the other day and never talked to me again until today.
He said "go away" and blocked me from all social media. I gave this person my heart and soul and now I am so destroyed I can hardly function and I am at risk of losing my job as I have not been able to work for days.
Is this normal for someone to totally destroy you life.

2023.06.06 17:54 godaniel11 Looking for a late-September/October rental: 1br+den or 2 br.

Got an intern who’s only doing a summer sublease? Want to have peace of mind that your next renter is already in place? Thankfully you’ve found the guy who’s enough of a planning freak that he’s looking this far in advance!
In seriousness: my partner and I are looking to rent and are very flexible right now in exploring options for when our current lease expires. We prefer to stay in DC near a metro stop that could get us to easily commute to Arlington.
Our budget is under $3,000 per month and we would prefer a place with a separate room for remote work, but are open to somewhere that is large enough to accommodate.
Please let me know if you have or know of anything! Also open to lease takeovers.

2023.06.06 17:54 pand0ra22 blind cockatiel advice?

I purchased a blind cockatiel from a flea market a few days ago. He doesn't like to be touched, should i stop? When he backs away i leave him alone, i make some noise before I come near him and talk to him. When i first tried he backed away very fast, but now he won't run or anything, just pull away, so i stop and keep talking to him for a bit. I honestly think he's been abused :( I want him comfortable and happy even if he doesn't want me to touch him, any advice is appreciated. I worry he's lonely but one my budgies will hang out near him and eat next to him occasionally, they're always chattering too so it's not quiet unless it's bedtime. He's figured out where one of his perches are so he'll fluff up, grind his beak and looks relaxed. He makes some noise but I'm not familiar with cockatiel sounds, he'll tuck his head under his wing and sing(?), not for long though. I don't know anything about his past so i want to be gentle as possible. Any advice is appreciated, I've never owned cockatiels, only budgies. I'll answer any questions as well if needed. Thank you

2023.06.06 17:53 reallarrydavid CMV: *Modern* men's suits are pretty ugly and I don't understand why they're so popular

It seems to me that men generally like the way they look in suits, women (who like men) generally like the way men look in suits, and they're widely considered to be the epitome of men's fashion. And I just don't get it. I want to like suits. I don't want to see a group of well-dressed men and think they all look bad. I hate thinking people look bad. It feels mean. I would love it if someone could come along and brainwash me into liking suits.
That said, I love vintage suits. Not all of them, but the ones with the high waistlines, the kind of straight-across shoulders, slightly oversized pants, big long jackets? Those look so sick imo. I don't know if that's an unpopular opinion. Maybe it is? Maybe this kind of suit is widely considered to be ugly by actual experts, but to my eyes they're totally sharp. I think I'd love men's fashion if this kind of suit and general silhouette were to come back.
Part of it is that I don't really find a lot of men good looking. For all intents and purposes I'm a lesbian - when I do think a man is attractive I usually find out later that I just thought his haiclothes were cool and that I never actually wanted him. So as you can imagine I never think men who wear suits are attractive.
Again, I do not like this fact about myself. It feels so mean. It's that thing where someone thinks they look their absolute best and you strongly disagree, so it creates that awkward cringe-inducing tension for you. Like bad American Idol auditions. I'm sorry, men.
Anyway, please change my view. This is a forum for defending the modern men's suit. If you want, I can provide a couple examples of suits I don't like vs. suits I like. I'm not going to do it unless pressed however, because I'm scared of revealing just how bad my taste in men's fashion really is.

2023.06.06 17:51 tempuntilifindyou 48 [M4F] #SanFrancisco I can look but I can’t touch

—> Please do not even contact me if you are a day under 18. <—
It's not creepy. I'm just appreciating a work of art.
Maybe you've had a man notice you and you wish he didn't turn his head away?
Or maybe you don't get noticed like you deserve to be?
Maybe you've wanted to tease a man and watch the hardness grow in his pants?
Maybe you like to wear skirts sans panties, and would stand over me?
Maybe you've wanted to cheat, sort of, without really, actually?
Maybe you've wanted to feel sexy, without sex?
(While we both have masks on. Double masks, even, because covid. Even if you're married.)
I want to find just one woman to, while in her chosen state of undress, would like a respectful and respectable gentleman to just be there close and observe... and moan and ogle and take in the beautify before him, while keeping his hands to himself.
Don't get me wrong, I really do like sex. And I'm not a prude. I just really like the feminine form, these are not times to be exchanging bodily fluids, and truth be told I wouldn't want to actually get physical with anyone I don't feel an emotional connection to first. (Yes there are men like that.)
Now, I realize a woman would be cautious about being so vulnerable with a stranger so I expect a lot of our initial conversations would be about placating your justifiable concerns. I'm all about that. A gentleman bears the burden of making a lady feel comfortable enough to proceed.
That said, based on experience with a similar post I tried from a now-deleted account of mine that brought no success, what I won't do is play games, converse with someone who won't tell me where she's located, engage in virtual play of any kind, or just answer questions while not being allowed to ask a few of my own. I'm sorry but I will block one-liners and incoherence.
About me: Not a creep! Really, women approach me in public to ask for directions and children approach me to help find their parents. I'm told I look "smart" and "presentable." I attractive enough to be noticed more when I don't have my ring on. Brown hair. White.
About you: No age limit either way. I guess I'm open to anything for this but in general I have been attracted to relatively more innocent appearances on the scale of things. As for race, I have mostly been attracted to Asian, Black, Latina, and white (in alphabetical order. And I suppose just because I haven't even been around a lot of Middle Eastern women?) Be at least somewhat attractive. If you're exceptionally attractive and you're used to men noticing you, or if you're not so sure and want the compliment of having me in a state of agonizing desire, this might be perfect for you. Especially if you're much younger or older and just want the appreciation with no contact.
Important: Obviously I don't mean just "check you out" while behind in line at the grocery or watching you jog by while you are wearing tight clothes, because I wouldn't need to post an ad for that. This would need to be in a private or semi-private space or some place that is so vast that we're so far from everyone that they won't wonder what I'm doing examining you so closely . Consider wearing nothing, yoga clothes, a swimsuit, underwear, etc. Just as obviously, I am not looking for an "online thing" or even talk about this with someone who isn't in the SF Bay Area or Northern California.

2023.06.06 17:47 rEEfman_SK Lore bits from The Lost and the Damned [excerpt]

So as a preparation for The End and the Death: Volume II, I decided to re-read the Siege of Terra series and I totally forgot how amazing is this conversation between Malcador, Valdor, Sanguinius, Khan and Dorn. I think it contains point of view answers to some of the lore questions - some quite major - that regularly pop up in this subreddit. Excerpts from The Lost and the Damned by Guy Haley.
On the size of Horus's army.
‘They are almost incalculable in size. There are representatives from every Traitor Legion within the Solar System. He commands thousands of regiments of traitor soldiery, hundreds of Knightly houses, dozens of Titan Legios, which though they were diminished at Beta-Garmon,’ he indicated Sanguinius, ‘still outnumber our own. Now the innersystem blockade has been swept aside, the unified forces of the Dark Mechanicum are heading for Terra from Mars. We are beset on all sides.’
On the size of incoming Guilliman's army.
‘Horus brought most of his armies here. Roboute’s forces are formidable. When I left him, he was busy sending orders that Ultramar and all the Ultima Segmentum be emptied of men. More forces flock to him on the way, including elements of Vulkan’s and Corax’s Legions we thought lost. When he arrives, it will be at the head of a force the near match of Horus’ said Sanguinius.
Malcador explains why the Primarchs - except one - were not briefed about Warp. Which one was it? The book does not say. I think it was either Lion, Russ or Corvus.
‘My boy,’ said Malcador wearily, ‘you cannot understand because matters of the spirit were not given you to understand by your father. I could explain them at length and you most of all would never comprehend. Do you not think if it were possible that I or your father could have explained them already, that you would have been told of the threat in the warp from the very beginning?’
‘I deeply regret that it was not done,’said Dorn.
‘The results would have been disastrous, believe me,’said Malcador.
‘Not telling us was arguably worse,’said Dorn.
‘Was it?’ said Malcador softly. ‘Very well. Let us take you, Dorn. You were made to command the material realm. Nothing in this world is beyond your grasp. But understanding of the warp would have eluded you. Being a man who desires mastery of all things, you would have been drawn to study it, and in doing so, you would have fallen. You are resistant to the dangers in the dark, but no one is immune.’ He paused. ‘Only one of you had the mettle to resist the whispers of the gods at the start. He was told.’
‘Who the Emperor told is not important. Even now it is better that you do not know,’ said Malcador. ‘To name the powers in the empyrean is to invite their attention. The knowledge alone is corrupting – that is all you need to know now, and far more than you needed to know then.’
Seems like Malcador knew Sanguinius will die in Siege of Terra.
‘You must perform your part. I shall perform mine when the time comes.’ As one of the few men in all existence who could look into a primarch’s eye without flinching, Malcador met the gaze of each of the three loyal sons in turn. ‘All of you have your parts to play in this struggle.’ He smiled sadly at Sanguinius, and the Angel looked aside.
The Phalanx was not a part of Siege of Terra, because Dorn wanted to use it for the evacuation of the Emperor.
‘If Terra falls, the Emperor must survive,’ said Dorn. ‘We all agree that the Emperor, not Terra, is Horus’ objective. The Phalanx represents our best chance of effecting His escape. Only my flagship has any chance of fighting in and out of the system to carry Him away. In all other cases, the perimeter ships will remain out of engagement range until Roboute approaches,’ said Dorn.
Dorn admits that Alpharius was not entirely pro-Horus. This ties to my theory that Alpharius was running the Orpheus protocol for a long time - .
‘Could Mortarion have had a change of heart?’ wondered Sanguinius aloud. ‘I am certain few of our brothers expected to find themselves allied with daemons. Mortarion least of all – you know how much he hates the warp.’
Dorn’s eyes narrowed. He thought momentarily of Alpharius. When the twentieth primarch infiltrated the Solar System, he had spoken with Dorn, and what he said could have been interpreted as contrition. Dorn had not listened, and had slain Alpharius at Pluto, a fact he still kept from his brothers.
The Primarchs did not know that Vulkan is perpetual. Kurze has definitely found out the wrong way - hammertime.
A sly look crept across Malcador’s face.
‘Vulkan lives,’ he said.
The shock visible on Sanguinius, Dorn and the Khan’s faces gratified the Sigillite, and he smiled like a conjuror pleased with the effects of a trick.
‘I’m sorry?’ said Dorn.
‘What do you mean, Malcador?’ said Sanguinius. ‘I saw him dead upon Macragge. I witnessed his corpse borne away by his sons myself!’
‘Vulkan’s corpse is not like other corpses. The Salamanders took him back to Nocturne, where they were successful in restoring him to life. Vulkan has… certain abilities, as you all do,’ said Malcador.
The Emperor was apparently close to completing the Webway gate on Terra.
‘Disaster struck when He was close to completion. Your brother Magnus, my lords, was loyal, but arrogant. In his hubris, he used sorcery to warn the Emperor of Horus’ treachery. The sorcery he employed, that he had been forbidden from, destroyed the wards around the bridge, and all the foes of men came rushing in.’
‘That is where Valdor’s men were for so long when you returned, my brothers,’ Dorn said to Jaghatai and Sanguinius.
This one is very hotly debated topic in this subreddit, but Malcador clearly says (could be lying though) that Horus pushed Russ to kill Magnus.
‘So Russ was sent to punish Magnus without reason,’said Sanguinius.
‘Not without reason,’ said Malcador. ‘But the chastisement was never meant to be so harsh. We determined to despatch the Wolf King to bring Magnus back to Terra for censure for defying the judgement of the Council of Nikaea. Horus manipulated the order.’
In 40k the Emperor cannot leave the Golden Throne or be externally killed, because he is holding the warpgate on Terra closed.
‘Let me explain, Constantin,’ Malcador said. He paused to gather his thoughts before he went on. ‘What none of you know is that your father is trapped upon the device He created to keep the bridge to the webway open. It was intended to be a temporary measure, until the Mechanicum could stabilise the conduit. But all their work was destroyed. If He leaves the Throne now, the doors into the warp will open, and Terra will drown under a tide of Neverborn and all their infinite malice.’

2023.06.06 17:47 Sir_sirmilitary "GOOD FRIENDS DONT CALL IN NIGHT"

It was 2 AM. I realized that my sleep was over when someone was already the third time calling me on my phone. Sleepy, I got up, rubbed my eyes, and saw, that my friend "Michael" was calling me. Understandably, I was angry. But I decided, because it was my friend that I need to pick up the phone As I picked up, he said this:
"Ayo, so I have a problem... My car stalled near the forest on the outskirts of the city.. can you pick me up, please. I'll send the coordinates."
I swear, in his voice, something was.. a little bit strange. I thought it was because of stress that his car was stalled.. actually, how did he get there?
I looked at my phone, as he sent the coordinates. It was 70km away from the city. Before I even asked something he got offline and didn't answer the calls.
Even though it was a long way there, I decided to drive there. My worst error.
I put on the jacket, opened the front door of my house, passed the garden, closed the door, and sat in my Chevrolet. As I started the car, I saw that nobody was driving that night time. After I left the city I saw a black figure, that quickly disappeared into the forest. As I came closer, I saw my friend's old BMW. I opened the doors of my Chevrolet and knocked on Michael's car's left window. I saw him, sitting in his car. The first time he ignored me and then turned to me.
He silently left his car, slowly coming to me. As I saw, his car was in minimum damage from the accident. He didn't even try to start it when I drive. As he came to me, he said "thanks" and sat in my car. He didn't answer most questions, and when I asked about how he got there he answered "I was going to my grandma." Perhaps he was sleepy... As I started the car, we move forward but the road was the same even though we moved.
Then I saw this - I saw another BMW, the same one that my friend has. As I looked into Michael's eyes, I left the car and I came to the same BMW car. This BMW was extremely damaged, and I saw the body of Michael...
Then who is the one I picked up? I was feared to turn around and even got paralyzed because of that situation. As I turn around I saw Michael standing near my car. In a matter of seconds, his skin starts to get off like a costume. I stand paralyzed for some seconds but when his skin lay on the road, I saw the true one - tall, like my friend's body, sharp claws and jar with long sharp teeth. His eyes were pure white and he ran at me, soonly after he would scream that my ears were hurt. I run and hide behind Michael's BMW. It was all dark, only the headlamp of my car lighted the bumper of the BMW.
Then I heard noises behind me. As I turned, the monster was already 10m back from me. As I looked into his eyes he ran at me. I had no other choices as I run forward, soonly after hopping into my car and trying to start it. I lost track of the monster and turned off the headlights and light in the car and hide in the back seats. Soonly after, my eyes used to darkness and I saw the monster, standing near my car. Then, I saw Mercedes driving near the road as its doors would open. As the men left, Monster attacked the men, ripping his internal organs on the road. as the blood would spill everywhere. I used this to run away. I started my car successfully, and at full speed, I'd drive on the road, so only after losing track of the monster. So only after, I would drive into a village... I was surprised, and my calmness ended when I looked back. The monster was already in the back of my car. Then the car stalled. On the windows of the car, I would see shadows. Then, the monster broke the frontal window and plunged his claws into my shoulder. I shouted, as my warm blood would be spilled everywhere. I already thought that my life was over, but then I would see the sunrise.
As the sun set, everything disappeared. I fell on the road, exhausted and having no powers whatsoever. I was happy, that monster didn't rip my organs, but soonly, I saw a car. Then, I don't remember anything, but I woke up at the hospital, with the bandage on my shoulder. I didn't say a word. Then, I woke up and the doctors told me that the operation is done.
Continue or not?

2023.06.06 17:47 Flashy-Biscotti2874 My dog runs away -and other obedience problems

Our one year-old mix breed(most probably a hunting breed mix) dog ran away two times. One time because I let her off-leash when I should not have (she was playing with her friends, saw a black cat afar and chased it outside our residential borders), this time my mum accidentally left the house door open. Thankfully I found her and could bring back home after chasing around and tricking her to come near me. She has a habit of running away when I call her name. Her recall is better at home even though not perfect. She has been with us since two months old and I thought I managed to teach her some stuff like sit, stay, lie down. But now I see that none of them are working in real life situations. She also has a resource guarding attitude around some specific foods and she bit my mom once seriously. How do I repair my relationship with my dog and go back to basics? Is it possible to fix these problems? I know it has been a complicated question but I m really struggling on where to start to turn things around. It is my first time owning a dog and any suggestions/similar stories I would appreciate so much.

2023.06.06 17:46 ChubbyBulbasaur How to encourage selecting the best players during Immortal Draft?

Let me preface this by saying I am nowhere near immortal, but I like watching DOTA streams. So when I read the patch notes about Immortal Draft, I was excited. Maybe we’d finally see whether it’s better to pick the Rank 60 support or the Rank 20 carry in a game where there’s mostly core players? Then drafting players might become a legitimate skill in pub games.
But, alas no. The high ranked streamers I watch are often chosen as the captain, proceed to pick the lowest MMR players available, and then complain all game long that their teammates are terrible.
Like what did you expect when you’re rank 2 and deliberately pick rank 500s instead of the rank 50 player that was available?
Now, we all know why they do this: You lose less MMR when you lose and you gain more MMR when you win. But man does it feel stupid.
That said, I’d like to discuss ways to encourage captains to actually pick the “best” players available first.
Here’s a couple potential suggestions: 1. Calculate the rating difference based on the highest MMR player available at the time you picked. So if there was a 10k player available and you picked the 6k player, that’s on you. 2. Add a flat 10 MMR to the amount gained or lost when you’re captain. I goes a bit against Glicko, but it’d promote actually thinking during the player picking phase. 3. Make the variation in MMR gained or lost per game significantly smaller. No more +40/-10. Maybe have a max of +30/-20 instead.
For the sake of this discussion I’d like to focus on strict solo queue, though I understand that parties are another complicating factor.

2023.06.06 17:45 AgileAdvice2066 I hate Zelda

I hate Zelda. I hate the fact that it exists. The mechanics are anywhere from obtuse to the gameplay equivalent of Quaaludes.
I wish the gameplay could do anything to excite me or anyone else, but even after inserting a Breath of The Wild Cartridge directly into my pons, I still can't fathom the appeal of a mute little chimp running around swinging metal with the visual flair of a starving POW.
The music makes me feel like I'm in that moment right after my toe finally pulls the trigger but before metal meets meat and my whole life flashes before my eyes. Why did I boot this up? Is what I'm doing even something that constitutes 'play'? Is there a hell hot enough for the developers of this 64 bit torture?
Did development begin on TOTK in Guantanamo Bay to get prisoners to break? If not, I'm sure someone would be glad to give it a try in the near future as soon as someone dumb enough to purchase this game finally does so and reports it to the authorities for the abuse it is.
Compare this GARBAGE to the zen, tranquility, the masterpiece of experience, Dark Souls II. Every moment from the second you boot up the game is handcrafted artistry. It's a good thing Miyazaki didn't even get his greasy mitts on this game to fill it full of feet and over the top 'lore'.
Dark Souls II not just refined, it perfected the metroidvania, Zelda-like experience and honed it to a razor's edge by which all other games will prove if they can be cut from the same cloth. It's a rare gem in a sea of mediocrity and trite sequels and remakes.
Is what I would say if I had played any Zelda or Dark Souls II.
But I've only played Bloodborne, so pic unrelated.

2023.06.06 17:44 Far_Problem_8051 Soundbath Healing Tent by SoulPatch!

Not sure how many sat in the soundbath teepee near Moonshine and SoulPatch, but I was trying to find them on Facebook and I can't!
I know I met many of the workers, guides, whatever they want to be called: Drake, Precious, Bear, and Hitz was apparently the guy in charge.
All awesome people, but I now realize I don't know how to get in touch with them.
Any redditor sleuths able to help me out?

2023.06.06 17:42 MissFrijole Hospital Bill scam

I am fairly certain this is a scam, but I feel like I should share it, in case anyone else gets something similar.
I received a text message that looked legitimate, coming from a medical clinic telling me I have a bill I need to pay (in a state I done live in or near.) There was a link and a phone number in the message. I did not click the link, but I went to the URL in my browser. The website is legitimate and I entered my phone number in the login, but the next window asked for a statement number, which I obviously didn't have because I never visited this hospital.
I did a search of the contact phone number and reviews of it said it was some woman calling people asking to speak to someone else about billing. They were vague, but that raised a red flag. Then I searched the number that actually sent the text message and it was not associated with anything related to the content of the text and had a different area code.
Two weeks later, I got a reminder text of this bill with the same URL and billing phone number.
I have blocked the number, but I haven't reached out to the clinic to find out if someone stole my numbeidentity, or if it's a scam. I'm fairly certain this is a scam to get money out of me. I don't live anywhere near the clinic and haven't had any procedures done recently.
If anyone receives something similar, be sure to investigate!

2023.06.06 17:42 xmcchillinx1 Thank you - Finally submitted the claim

Intent to file was 10 months ago. I feel like the process so far was physically exhausting and mentally draining. Putting the claims together nearly broke me quite a few times. I’m hopeful that the hard part is over. The statement in support of my MH increase was by far the worst part and I don’t even want to think of the C&P exam..
Thank you to this group for the wealth of information available as I would have surely given up without this. I did not know of this subreddit 4 years ago and got overwhelmed and let my intent to file expire. After finding this group I chose to try again.
It’s not much, but actually submitting the claim is a huge victory for me and I just wanted to express my appreciation.
