2023.03.29 11:31 ParaMoon42 Angry Now And Just Venting...

Hello, everyone. It's me, Dani. :-)
I'm the 42-year-old sibling/anime nerd/writer, who's trying to care for my 57-year-old brother named Rob with a brain tumor and a badly infected leg (due to diabetes, thanks to the brain tumor). Along with my sister, Ace, who is the true rockstar and angel in all of this. And Rob's wife is a SAINT! She's put up with this madness for over a year and deserves all of the flowers possible! =p
So, it's been *checks notes* NINE days since I made my first post here, which started out with me venting about the horrible state of Rob's leg, the difficulty in changing his bandages (and peeling chunks of his skin away in the process, because the infection was THAT BAD!), about me going into a room to silent cry after those changings - before putting on a happy face again and approaching Rob with empathy and compassion again.
And just like the erosion of his leg, so is the state of our sibling relationship - as I've reached the point of screaming, cursing him out, and blocking phone calls altogether from Rob! I'll explain...
So, Ace took him to the best VA hospital in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Once the medical staff saw the state of his leg, they IMMEDIATELY admitted him and set up a whole team of specialists for him. Two wound-care specialists, a new endocrinologist, a GP (that Rob loved and kept praising a lot), a head nurse named, uh... let's call him Calvin - that took to him as a fellow ex-soldier himself, a psychologist (as he voiced that he was feeling a lot of anxiety and wanted to talk with someone), a social worker, and a group of nurses to tend to his every need and whim.
This dream-team would football huddle together and work quickly with the goal to save Rob's leg from being amputated from the knee, as that was a real possibility on the table. (Keep in mind, this isn't on his Veteran benefits - no, it's on his wife's private insurance). And the treatments were super effective, with every one of his doctors pretty much giving the green light that he'd likely be released from the hospital by Monday. Meaning the Monday that's already passed now...
By Saturday, Rob decided, "My leg is healed enough! I want to go home!" He meant that he wanted to go back to our apartment for my sister and me to resume playing nurse-maid to him. Every doctor was adamant in their professional opinion that it would be unwise for him to leave the hospital in the middle of the treatment that will save his leg! So many times, the phrases "not recommended" or "I wouldn't recommend it" was repeated by every doctor and specialist. They would tell Rob this directly and oftentimes with Ace in the room to witness it.
Somehow, Rob heard, "Something-something... you can go home now if you want to." Every. Single. Time. And when Ace went home from her visit with him, he'd get the doctor to get on his phone, to relay to Ace that he can skip out on his treatment, but the doctor would repeat over the phone, "I don't recommend that your brother signs out of treatment prematurely, in my professional opinion." Then Rob would take the phone back and shout to my sister, as if he was vindicated, "You see? Doctor says I can go home!"
Calvin tried to warn him, "If you leave this hospital, you'll lose the leg for certain!" Rob tried to argue with the head nurse that his leg wasn't that bad, so Calvin stated the truth, "Dude, I can smell the infection, as we speak." I had experienced that smell for two days before he went into the VA... it smells of rotting flesh! No lie or "no cap" as the kids say these days.
Rob got angry and decided that it was all his wife's fault that he was losing his leg. He called her up on the phone, screaming at her, and asking for a divorce, as poor Ace tried to calm him down. His wife's account was, that she gave him his antibiotics - he refused to take them and the infection got worse. And that's an observable truth, as Rob has a habit of not taking his medication when he's at home and it's left up to him to do. And, he's too prideful to let anyone else manage his medications for him.
Either that or too paranoid. I don't really know.
Before Saturday, on Friday, Rob decided that Calvin was at fault and should be fired. He blamed Calvin for "lying" to him about the risk of losing his leg, deciding that it was never that serious at all, and that Calvin was purposely trying to get him to divorce his wife. And then, more bizarre conspiracy theories against the hospital and staff occurred. (see the previous post, if you're curious.)
So, it's been days of nonstop gaslighting and emotional blackmailing from Rob! And... for some crazy reason, he believes I'm the "weakest link" (even though, Ace has openly admitted that she's the weaker of the two of us and has been leaning on me for support to not cave into his mind-games), and his presumption that he's somehow "smarter" than me and that he can easily get his way from me only pisses me off MORE so! :(
And the worse thing is - the leg thing is situated now... It's not great, but they managed to stop the infection. Rob took it upon himself to flood my phone with photos of his bloody mess of a leg, to "prove" to me that his leg is fine. Even though it looks like a shriveled and dead tree limb with huge gaping bloody wounds, that are actively staining the white linens within the photo. Yes, there is no more liquid and pus, just lots of blood flowing now, but... Seriously, any special effect artist would be PROUD to recreate the way his "leg" looks now, for any horror movie!
BUT, on Sunday, his brain tumor swelled up so much that his eye is drooping, because it is pressing on the optical nerve. Rob's vision is impaired by the tumor and the surgeon wishes to schedule him for brain surgery as soon as possible. They're trying to get a spot for him in the OR and everything set up, but... you know, COVID, so the systems are still bogged down, and the soonest they could get it was in a few days from now. He has to STAY for a few more days to get the brain surgery that he most certainly needs.
And he will... because he has no other choice. =p
In my last post, I explained that Ace and I set an ultimatum to him - if he signs out AMA, he'll have to figure out on his own how to get back to our apartment and how he's going to climb the stairs to the second floor alone. Fat chance of him being successful at either - because he's too weak to sit up on his own, let alone stand on two legs without any help, and he's not been in Minnesota long enough to learn how to travel it yet. (FYI, we're far away from the hospital, in a suburban town many miles away! And he doesn't have any money to pay for that kind of cab fare, even if he wanted to!)
Ace and I are doing a little "tough love", refusing to take him out of medical care, which would be actively helping him to die on our sofa if we did. Nope.
His wife is in FULL and EAGER agreement with this too, along with Rob's social worker as well. The social worker will speak to his new GP about getting a psych eval for him (because the doctor that he praised so much before was harassed and driven up a wall so much - he switched rotation to another floor, just so Rob could stop insisting that he speak with Ace on the phone several times a day and say that it's okay for him to leave the hospital with a huge swollen BRAIN TUMOR in his head!!!)
It's okay... I'm taking a breath. LOL.
So... in order to stop getting his gore-fest photos and his constant calls, still trying to convince me that I'm a better nurse to him than, you know, nurses who went through medical training and all. And trying to hit every pain point in me to get me to cave into what he wants, I blocked his number. Leading up to the blocking, I DID blow up at him on Monday and shouted, "No, you listen to me! Your leg is f**king falling apart! I was peeling off your skin, every time I changed the bandages! Why do you think I'd immediately go back to my room, every time? I went to my room to CRY!" Rob paused, but he didn't care at all, he continued to argue that his leg was NEVER that bad and now that the infection was gone, he should come home... ignoring the swelling BRAIN TUMOR!!!!
I had enough and erupted with, "You're not going to manipulate me, you mother****er!!!" I don't use that swear, usually, as it was my mother's favorite swear. Perhaps, I was channeling a bit of her short temper, at that moment.
Then Rob tried to argue that I can't see very well (trying to use my eye condition against me - I am visually impaired with Keratoconus, yet in my constant blurred vision, I could see his skin sloughing off his wounds anyway. And so did my sister, who isn't visually impaired... nor were his doctors who were shocked and stunned at the state of his leg too, and poor Calvin the head nurse too), that I was seeing his leg "wrong" and "imagining things"... and that's when I hung up and blocked him.
For the past two days... of blissful peace! XD
I went about my day and life as usual while checking in on my sister, from time to time, who was still taking his calls and being driven up a wall.
And the phone block on Rob should have remained...
Tonight, he used the nurse's desk phone to contact me and leave a message on my voicemail. Before he went into the hospital, I had happily presented him with a "house-warming gift". You see, I suffer from PTSD and night terrors (will not get too much into that, just mentioning it for clarity's sake), and my sister bought me a tank with osculating jellyfish in it, to help me sleep better at night. It's a lot pretty, and calming, and it does help me out a lot.
When Rob came to visit us the first time (in far better health than he is currently in and not at all the asshole that we know him to be as now - I know, I know... it's the tumor.), he saw it and thought it was the coolest thing ever. So, I asked my sister to send the link to where she bought the tank, so I that could buy one for Rob when he came back to live with us/seek medical treatment in Minnesota. (That was THE PLAN, after all, that Rob would move in with us for a while and seek medical care here in Minnesota, as he said that our state had better doctors here than in Maryland.)
So tonight, Rob decided to leave me a message, saying that he was sorry and that if he was to go back to Maryland - would it be okay if he took along the jellyfish gift with him? No matter how much of an asshole someone is to me, a gift is a gift. I don't take back gifts, NOT EVER. That's not my style at all. And so, I took him off the phone block to text him just that. Word-for-word.
He wrote back - his words jumbled and misspelled heavily, because of his vision impairments, that was along the lines of "I know that you hate me now." And I replied back, "I don't hate you. I'm just not willing to put up with emotional blackmail bullshit." So then he called me and I kind of KNEW it was a bad mistake to answer, but I did answer...
Immediately, he tried to convince me that he can come home now because there was a "scheduling error" and the doctors said that he can leave for two days and come back for the brain surgery this weekend! This began a shouting match between him and me! LOL! Ace had talked to the doctors and social worker YESTERDAY, who said no such thing. And they keep stressing, if Rob leaves now, it will take at least three whole weeks before he would be able to get in brain surgery. Because, COVID, things are stressed and short-staffed in every hospital.
He will not last that long. He will either die of starvation (as he's not eating meals - and that's not anything new. Ace and I noticed that for a while now, before he went to the hospital, and had asked his wife about it too. She confirmed that Rob wasn't eating much in Maryland either. It may be time for a feeding tube to be introduced soon), or the pressure of the tumor may cause him to have a fatal stroke or other grizzly brain horrors and he'll die on our sofa.
I said to him (and please excuse my swears), "Stop being such a bitch-baby and stay for the surgery!" And he grumbled, "Stop calling me a bitch-baby..." And I literally punched the air, because I was so pissed off, and I snarled, "Okay, I will when you STOP acting like one!!!" Then I realized that I was screaming my head off past midnight, caught myself, and said, "You know what? Ace is in the next room, trying to get some sleep, so she can work in the morning... I'm NOT doing this with you, Rob!"
Then he asked, "B-but... do you still love me, as your brother?" I answered, "Yes, I love you, Rob... even though you're f**king nuts right now!" And he sulked, "I'm not f**king nuts..." Then he said, "Okay, I'll let you and your sister rest tonight then." And... he's back on phone block. I don't think I'll unblock him until AFTER his brain surgery. =p
Fool me once...
Anyway, sorry for this crazy long post! I did try to edit it down, but... so much has happened in the last... *checks notes again* OMG! TWO DAYS, since I last posted here. Seesh! :(
I'll update - AFTER Rob has gone through surgery and is situated. I just needed to vent and blow off some steam... at, currently, 4:30 AM in the morning. I'm hoping that this long af post was at least a little entertaining and provided a few chuckles, at the very least. ;-)
Be excellent to each other. And peace out!

2023.03.29 11:28 houstontexas2022 How a legal battle over an endangered chicken could reshape the Texas oil industry

How a legal battle over an endangered chicken could reshape the Texas oil industry
POLITICS How a legal battle over an endangered chicken could reshape the Texas oil industry
Edward McKinley March 28, 2023 A lesser prairie chicken is seen amid the bird's annual mating ritual near Milnesand, N.M., on April 8, 2021. A lesser prairie chicken is seen amid the bird's annual mating ritual near Milnesand, N.M., on April 8, 2021.Adrian Hedden/AP A wild chicken species in the Texas Panhandle could stymie the nation’s oil and gas producers, industry insiders fear.
After decades of advocacy from environmental groups, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week named the lesser prairie chicken as an endangered species. The bird, which lives in grasslands across five states, including the Texas panhandle, once numbered in the millions. Recent estimates suggest there are about 32,000 remaining.
RELATED: Big Oil is making billions, but don't expect lower gas prices
The bird was previously categorized as endangered in 2014, but a judge repealed that as part of a lawsuit from the Permian Basin Petroleum Association that asked for more time to prove that existing conservation efforts would work. Nearly a decade later, the service is trying once again. Industry groups and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton oppose the move and have sued, claiming the plan in place is working.
An endangered species designation triggers stringent conservation rules to protect the animal and its habitat. Existing oil and gas projects, as well as certain renewable energy projects, could be grandfathered in, but new projects could be blocked entirely or require expensive additional permits.
“This will add significant time and uncertainty to those permitting requirements," said Ben Shepperd, president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association.
“We’re talking about the most prolific oil field not only in Texas but in North America," he said. "And we think significant portions of oil and gas could be shuddered or negatively impacted, dramatically impacted, in such a way that it would disrupt the state of Texas’ economy, and frankly our national security and our energy security."
The listing also affects ranchers, as livestock grazing in certain areas could be harmful to the prairie chickens. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller lambasted the decision as a power grab and overreach from the Biden Administration, and he suggested it could contribute to rising food costs.
The decision to name the bird as endangered was announced last fall.
Industry groups, including Shepperd's and several cattle groups, are suing once again to stop the listing. And Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing separately on behalf of the agriculture and energy arms of the state government.
Are the birds rebounding?
The current argument boils down to whether or not the existing conservation plan is working to save the birds.
Known as the “rangewide plan,” it’s administered by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, which is comprised of the Texas Department of Fish and Wildlife and its counterparts from other states in the region. The effort began about a decade ago.
Critics of the new designation say populations of the bird are either stable or growing, and its habitat is protected. The plan requires oil and gas companies seeking to develop land in the chicken’s habitat to invest in conservation efforts elsewhere to cancel out the damage from their projects.
David Yoskowitz, director of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, also disagreed with the decision, writing, "We believe that the listing decision jeopardizes years of voluntary conservation efforts by landowners and industry."
But the national Fish and Wildlife Service said that active oil and gas wells in the chickens' habitat have increased by more than 80 percent over the last 10 years, a significant threat.
"Voluntary conservation efforts have helped conserve key habitat for the lesser prairie-chicken," the agency wrote in its announcement of its listing decision, "but have not demonstrated an ability to offset the threats and reverse the trends of habitat loss and fragmentation facing the lesser prairie-chicken."
An internal audit, which was shared as part of a federal public comment period, said the plan is on track to run out of money in the coming years, in part because funds were diverted from their intended purpose.
For instance, it said, the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies borrowed money from the supposedly permanent conservation fund, spending some on paying staff and more on a new, $650,000 headquarters building in Boise, Idaho, which is nowhere near the habitat for lesser prairie chickens.
Michael Robinson, a senior conservation advocate with the Center for Biological Diversity, described the rangewide plan as a “scam.”
“We’ve had a chance to actually look at how that plan that was supposed to obviate the need for a listing has played out,” he said. “It’s shocking, and the lesser prairie chicken has lost a great deal of habitat that was not replaced.”
Robinson's group, which has since the 1990s petitioned the federal government to name the bird as endangered, says the chicken's habitat has declined over the past decade and that oil and gas companies are generating “phantom” restoration credits without actually preserving any habitat.
For example, the group argued that the rangewide plan claimed to have restored 8,000 acres of chicken habitat by thinning out shinnery oak. But according to academic studies, those trees are “critical to conservation of some populations of prairie chickens.”
“The lesser prairie chicken has been on a downward trajectory for a long time, and with that and many other species, it takes years and even decades to recover them," Robinson said.

2023.03.29 11:21 nileshcarrerhopital The word “sexually transmitted” is preventing people from taking the vaccine.

In India Cervical Cancer is the 3rd most common cancer affecting both males and females. Around 53 million Indian women aged 13 years and above are at risk of developing cervical cancer yet the percentage of vaccination per year is not increasing.
Cervical Cancer is caused by the HPV virus, the human papillomavirus. This virus is only transmitted sexually. In a country like India where sex is taboo, it’s difficult for parents to accept that their children could be sexually active before marriage. This is one of the main reasons that the vast population below the age of 26 is unvaccinated. The HPV vaccine is most effective when administered between the age of 9 and 15.
There is a lot of misunderstanding regarding the virus and the vaccination. Many believe that their children would become more curious about sex or indulge in sexual activity after being vaccinated which is absolutely false. Some are of the opinion that if a person is monogamous (has only one sexual partner) they will not contact the virus which is again not true. The virus can infect anyone.
The vaccination is not recommended after the age of 40 since research indicates that most people have already been exposed to the HPV virus at least once in their life span and have developed antibodies.
Contacting the virus does not always lead to cancer. Usually, the human immune system fights back and with the help of medication the virus dies out. It is when the virus does not leave the body or even after symptoms subside a small amount of virus still lingers on in the body this causes the cells that line the cervix mouth and throat, anus, penis, vulva, or vagina to grow abnormally, these are called pre-cancerous cells. If these cells are not killed, they will continue to become cancer.
The HPV virus infects both boys and girls, men and women therefore it is equally important to vaccinate both girls are boys.
A large part of Indian society is unaware of this virus and the need to vaccinate against it. In fact cervical cancer can be largely prevented and the number of deaths can be decreased drastically with the help of the vaccine.
Today India has 3 vaccines - Cervarix, Gardasil and the latest Gardasil 9. Serum institute of India is already making its own vaccine Cervavac which has got approval from the government and will be commercially available by the year-end. Cervavac will be priced at a much lower rate and the medical fraternity is hopeful that this will lead to a decrease in cancer caused by the HPV virus. td {border: 1px solid #cccccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}https://careerhospital.in/cims-at-a-glance
The need of the hour is more awareness and acceptance that physical intimacy is part of human existence. By ignoring or choosing to disregard this fact we are only putting our younger generation at risk of developing cancer.
2 doses spaced out with a gap of 6 months between the age of 9 to 14 years and 3 doses spaced out between the age of 15 to 26 years can save individuals from cancer. https://careerhospital.in/cims-at-a-glance
Schools, colleges, and community centers need to accept this as their duty to spread awareness and organize vaccination camps. With more doctors recommending and informing patients about the effects of the HPV virus, the country hopes to see a fall in the number of cases.

2023.03.29 10:57 Brahmaster A forum post on quality of life improvements for Diablo IV

  1. Add a party recruitment tab/Party Finder. Say, a bill board at a town tavern, town square, guild building, or at least accessible from a menu tab.
  2. Add a Quest Tab/ World Event Calendar tab, where you can keep track of world events and their local time countdowns.
  3. Add Event Planner attached to Event Calendar, feature to set a reminder alarm for events you want to attend with their timers.
  4. Allow us to save our communication rose settings to all other characters on our account. Currently we have to set up the emote/quick bar manually for all characters.
  5. Allow players to choose a Title that is prefix- or suffix only, not both. So, not "Unfettered Drifter" but just "Drifter".
  6. Add a rare travelling vendor that moves across overworld randomly that sells rare ingredients (like "fiendrose" that is needed for enchanting affixes, but only available during hell tide).
  7. Add export option for saved build presets to external databank, social media, or friend message (like in HotS).
  8. Make "inspect player" able to see some of their skill build too.
  9. Add model talking animation on vendor window. They move, and talk but mouths aren't animated.
  1. Add practice dummies in a section of town (damage gauge for build/rotation testing).
  2. Evading when standing over the laddejumping terrain should do a dodge if mouse cursor isn't over the footsteps icon. Some ladders had this problem.
  3. Add Ability to use potion on ladder (panic saves and DoT).
  4. Add Ability to cancel going down ladder within the first 0.75 sec of descent/ascent if you've made a mistake, by double clicking "interact".
  5. Add Option to disable potion sound from allies/raid members (12 people doing a world boss all "blurbing" potions loudly ruins the immersion).
  6. Add Option to disable excessive item/cooldown voice prompts; ie. "It's not ready", or relay it with a sound effect, ie. a tick.
  7. Reset deathblow cooldown if the target dies when the animation initiates. Sometimes it dies mid-swing animation and Deathblow goes on cooldown.
3) UI
  1. Make Area name labels, event complete label ("EVENT COMPLETED") overlay at the top of screen able to be dismissed or made transparent- it covers a 3rd of the screen while you're mid-fight.
  2. Add function to hide Quest summary under minimap.
  3. Add Health bar indicator to show 80% Life (a mark/horizontal line) - Important to know where Bubble shield buff activates, or where you are in "Healthy" 80%+ range to apply certain buffs.
  4. Add Party Stat breakdown after boss fights, and world boss fights- display to all members the top damage and CC (stagger bar) contributors. Something to compete for.
  5. Add in-game clock showing time of day/night. Announce morning and evening with a rooster cockadoodle/ wolf howl (Warcraft 3 feature, optional).
  6. Some aspect modifiers do not have status effect icons.
  7. Remove "IMMUNE" status effect (bug) over enemies, and add function for selective status effects (I dont want to see "TAUNT" + Skull icon covering the screen if using "Challenging shout" in a big group of enemies).
  8. Add function to rescale or move action bar, not just "center or left".
  9. Add separate tab for character "stats".
4) MAP
  1. Tabbing in and out of map should resume/keep the same location and zoom as before being tabbed out, not reset automatically to character location.
  2. Add Ability to ping map for allies with warning, and waypoint signals.
  3. Add function to highlight your own position indicator on Tab map, and also ping your own location to party.
  4. Add function to lable waypoints on map, or have different waypoints active at the same time with different colours like BotW.
  5. Add highlighted icon on Tab map to show exit portal that connects you to the town from where you teleported.
  6. Add a clear indication on world map which dungeons have been completed, not just a recent and expiring green check mark. When you load back into game you don't know where you've been by just looking at the map.
  7. Make it obvious that players can zoom out to Overworld map from the dungeon map.
  1. Separate body and face tattoos.
  2. Separate earrings from nose rings.
  3. Add function to change hairstyle in wardrobe, or at a vendor that can provide this service like FF14. Keeps things fresh and we don't have to remake a character to get a new hairstyle.
  4. Add "SNAPSHOT MODE" for wardrobe to export fashion photo and share on social media. (Potentially add emotes to this mode).
  5. Add Ability to set default character that greets you in the main menu showcase background, seems to be the last character you create/use.
  6. Make Rogue able to hide bow on back. Can show "unequipped look" in wardrobe, but upon "confirm" re-equips bow, so might be bugged.
  1. Add an optional ("don't show this message again") CONFIRM prompt on gem drops. If you missclick it costs 5k gold to remove that gem.
  2. Add option for players to salvage the transmog of an item that gets an aspect imprinted onto it, and thereby changes the look of item when it gets upgraded to legendary. This has robbed some from the desired transmog without warning.
  3. Add text window that shows what slots that aspect can occupy before extraction. Sometimes you extract an aspect only to realize the aspect will not be placed on gloves, but only weapons.
  4. Clicking outside of Character Window (C) should automatically close it (optional). Makes quick view and quick move possible, especially if you accidentally tap it in battle.
  5. Add a "confirm" prompt on skill point reassignment so that you can reassign points without having to free up other supporting nodes before migrating them to a new supporting node. (Let players lift skill points and put them down again without having to temporarily refund points).
  6. Add Drag-select/ window select function for multiple items in inventory.
  7. Add a Preset loadout tab for skill point assignments, I assume this is coming, but a saved list of aspects at time of build would help too. Make it exportable too.
  8. Add function to lock in item text tab of a particular item so that it stays up while cycling through other items for comparison by mouseover.
  9. Add function to, eg. "Press ALT" on item window over an aspect to instantly highlight all other items in inventory that have the same aspect for quick locating.

2023.03.29 08:53 GrievingGrandson I love you Grandpa. You were my Grandpa, my Dad, and my Best Friend.

I never thought I would use Reddit for this, but here I am. I want to start out by saying how much I appreciate this community and the support everyone provides. I lost my Grandpa on 2/14/23, and reading posts on here helps me to see that other people handle their grief in different ways. The non-grieving world keeps turning and we are expected to put our loss behind us and function normally. Reading about how others have experienced sorrow, anger, guilt, and all of the other emotions lets me know that there is no certain way to grieve. I'm not sure why I wanted to post this now since it has been over a month since my Grandpa passed. I guess I just wanted to share our story to add to the community and if it helps me and someone else with a similar experience then I consider it being worth it.
I was brought into the home of my grandparents when I was 8 years old due to my dad falling into drug addiction after the passing of my mom from cancer. My Grandpa made a promise to my Mom before she passed that he would make sure I was taken care of. They raised me as their own son, got me through school and college, and have supported my adult profession as a police officer. My Grandpa was a retired firefighter and when he loved that I was a police officer. He even did a ride along with me, and was planning on doing another one. I'm 31 now, and my Grandpa was 85. Even up until the last few weeks of his life, he was always very active. He did exercises everyday and went on long walks. I've always seen him as the strongest man I know. One of our favorite things to do together was to go and shoot his guns that he bought and collected.
Several years ago my Grandpa was diagnosed with a skin cancer on the top of his head. Every time a new spot popped up, it usually just required some radiation treatments and then life would go back to normal. In 2022, it became more aggressive though, but the doctor made it seem that it was still treatable. This time he had to do a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. It was very hard on him for an 85 year old man, and he wasn't able to do much due to the sickness and fatigue. He eventually had to stop the chemotherapy and was able to finish the radiation treatments. Everything appeared to be going back to normal at the end of 2022, and we were able to enjoy Christmas together one last time. In January 2023 though, he had a seizure at home which we initially thought was a stroke. At the hospital, they found out that it was actually a seizure and his scans showed that there were cancerous lesions in his brain from the cancer spreading. When he got out of the hospital, we immediately made an appointment with his cancer physician. His doctor told us that he would try to treat it, but it would require 10 back to back radiation treatments every single day. He told us that since the cancer (angiosarcoma) had now spread to his brain, that the radiation treatments would have more of an effect on him since it was no longer just on the surface of his head. But everything seemed hopeful and we decided to go through with the treatments.
My grandparents got a hotel room in the city where the hospital was, since it was an hour and a half drive away. It happens to be the same city I live in. I was able to spend almost every day with him, besides when I had to be at work. We went to a pipe tobacco store, a gun store, several restaurants, and spent time together in the hotel room. I'll never take that time for granted. The treatments went well, until about halfway through he became very tired and had lost a lot of weight. But this was to be expected. On the last day of treatment, he was having a hard time walking, and needed to use a cane, which he never used. As my grandparents left to go back home, I just thought that once he got back to the comfort of his own home, he could rest and would eventually start eating more again once the radiation effects wore off.
The next morning, I got a phone call that he had collapsed and had to go to the hospital where they live. I felt terrible. I still feel terrible. I'm so mad at myself for not recognizing that he was so weak and sick, and I should have went home with them to help take care of him and to encourage him to eat and drink. Apparently he collapsed from dehydration, and he went from the emergency department to the ICU. When I arrived at the hospital and found out he was in the ICU, I was told it was because of the medications he was being administered to stabilize his blood pressure. We then found out that he had went into septic shock from a perforated colon caused by diverticulitis. I didn't even know that he had that. As he spent more days in the ICU, the nurses found out that he had bed sores when they took him for an MRI. And now as I am writing this I am starting to tear up because I knew how much he hated MRIs. And he had it done for nothing. The nurses even bumped his head when doing the scan which tore a part of his skin away since his head was so tender from the radiation. He didn't deserve that.
After a few days in the ICU, his vitals appeared to be better and they took him off of the medications, except for the antibiotics. They put him in a different unit, and that's when it all went downhill. He started getting really sick, saying that his stomach hurt, and he didn't want to eat or drink anything. I tried to encourage him to eat and drink, but he was in too much pain. As time went on, he started breathing really heavy, did not want to try and get out of bed, and stopped talking. I don't want to go into all of the details, because it's really difficult for me to relive them and I'm still processing them. After a few days in that unit, his vitals and labs were bad again, and we were told that he would either have to go back to ICU and be put on life support, or we could let them give him some medicine to ease the pain so that he could go restfully. We decided as a family that it would have been cruel to extend his suffering and we know he wouldn't want to have been put on life support. We had to watch him take his last breath, and as traumatizing as it was, I couldn't leave him and let him be alone. After everything he has done for me, that was the least I could do.
After his passing the next few days were a blur. I never imagined that I would have to plan my Grandpa's funeral. Finding pallbearers, picking out a casket, picking out music, putting together the photos for the slideshow, and writing the tribute. Now that the funeral has been over for over a month, and people try to go back to their normal lives, it hurts even more. My job as a police officer is especially hard for me to go back to. I have to try and put on a straight face for the public, so in between calls I'm usually about to burst into tears so I have to go find a solitary place. At least that's one good part about my job. I can just go drive to a secluded area like a park and get my tears out. I know that most of you on here probably don't have that luxury and I'm sorry that you may have to try and hold it in for a full work day. Everything I see around me at work reminds me of him. I drive by the hospital where he was receiving cancer treatments just about every shift I work. It just feels so unreal that he was there just not that long ago.
I know that he lived to be 85, and that's a long good life. It just still feels like it was so sudden. And maybe that is better than a slow, suffering death from the spread of cancer. But he was my everything. He was my Grandpa, my Dad, and my best friend. And now I have to live the rest of my life without him here. The days feel so dark now. I was having a lot of dreams about him the days after his passing, but they don't happen much anymore. I have cried every day since he passed, but the feeling is becoming more of a numb feeling of sadness with periods of anger. I get angry at the nurses and doctor that seemed to have neglected him in the hospital after he left the ICU. I trusted the people who were medically trained to take care of him, and didn't speak up enough for him while he was in the hospital. I feel guilty for not spending more time with him while I could, for not recognizing how negatively the radiation treatments were affecting him. I know that he wouldn't want me to feel this way, but I feel like I failed him and he could still be here with me today. But then I tell myself, it would only be a matter of time until something else happened or the cancer spread again. We can't live forever.
I always thought that my faith was strong and I was a spiritual person, until this happened. Your beliefs really are challenged when going through the loss of a loved one. It's went from a hopeful "I believe because an afterlife sounds nice and I hope I get there" to a desperate "I hope that my loved isn't non-existent now and that their soul is still alive and I can see them again". I just can't think of my Grandpa being nothing now. He was so much more than just a physical body. I have to believe that he's still out there somewhere.

Race - Caucasian
Duration of complaint - Few months, seemingly getting worse
Location - Arms and legs. More noticeably in the legs. Right leg in particular. Around my shin area is a burning/aching pain that only goes away to be replaced by pain either in the forearms or other leg. Right now it's just pretty bad on the right lower leg.
Any existing relevant medical issues - Not that I know of.
Current medications - None
Include a photo if relevant - Not relevant
Comment - How do I get this looked at? I saw a doctor about a month ago and received a nerve study at a neurologist. They zapped me a few times but didn't really find anything. Doctor wants me to go back but due to a few ongoing things requiring me to take time off work, I stepped away from neurologist (Braces tightening, general dental, a few heart scans). The pain today is so bad I'm regretting that choice. What could it be? How can I test for it? I'm in Australia

2023.03.29 08:34 throwaway02749274 I am not a good pet owner.

Ever since I got my first dog 10+ years ago, I've had Dog #1, #2, #3, and #4. Dog 1 is 13 years and still kicking. Dog 2 was abandoned on the side of a country road by my dad, because I talked back to him once. Dog 3 had to be given up and have a safer environment, as the neighbor who is psycho, purposely tempted him to go to her, to finally have her chance to shoot him. Dog 4 is still in my home, she recently turned 2, and is the bestest friend I have in this dark period of my life.
As a child, I was very violent with animals. Me and cats do not mix, and I avoid being around them to this day, as I black out with anger to this day. I am currently in treatment for this. My dad wanted photos and videos of me as a child, documenting everything. As a result, I saw my 6 year old self continuously throw a small cat into a dog-igloo type house. I was even scratched on my eyelid by the same cat. Luckily I stopped doing this to the cat, but I was never told exactly when.
Dog 1 was given to me when I was 7-8. Still had violent tendencies, and I hate to even recall this. I yelled and hit her, forced her to listen. I was evil to the point of sitting on her stomach, with the intention to, well, it's clear what the intent was. Somehow I got over it, I got bored or felt bad, I don't remember exactly what I did after. Despite this, I still yelled at her, hitting still. I never again attempted what I did that night.
Somewhere around that time I was given a cat. The cat had to be buried not long after. I admitted immediately what I had done to my mom. I can only describe it as pure evil. Anger issues is quite the understatement.
Now that I have Dog 1 and 4 still, the anger has dramatically decreased, partly due to finally being medicated, and learning that animals are not human, they do not understand right and wrong. The only thing I do now, to Dog 4, is yell at her. Im not sure if this is included, but I manhandle her to simply trim her nails. Peanut butter, talking to her softly, or continuous treats don't help. to handle the solution to this with her vet, but they say I should continue the manhandling. I don't feel comfortable with that.
I am not trying to get sympathy or pity. I want to be better, and the anger reactions to go away. It's a shit excuse to say I can't handle it when it gets to that point, so I won't use that. But I honestly don't know how to get the help I need.
We can't afford training for her, she isn't violent, not that I know of, nothing has ever happened yet--but I can't risk it. I try what I read, but she doesn't really take me seriously. Are there alternatives to training her, or is it too late since she is 2?
Please try not to be rude. I know people want to burn animal abusers on the stake, but I am looking for resources to be better.

2023.03.29 08:20 superduperyahno I think I'm tone deaf - How to match pitch?

I know everyone says this, and I know it's medically rare. But I'm genuinely starting to think I'm tone deaf.
I sang a song and recorded it. I thought I sounded okay, not great but not bad either. I listened and it was absolutely horrendous. Seriously, the most horrific singing I've ever heard and that's saying something. There was not a single thing that sounded good. I couldn't even finish listening, it was that horrible. I should note that my mother has the exact same plight and we sound very similar, and she also thinks she sounds fantastic in her head. I can vouch that it's definitely not fantastic outside of her head. Can tone deafness be hereditary?
I looked up how to match pitch and watched several videos with people hitting notes on instruments - mainly the piano - and then "matching" it.
I don't know if I'm going crazy or what but I do NOT hear how they are matching it whatsoever. Both sounds are beautiful, but they are not even close to the same to my ears. They sound completely different. I've noticed the sung note usually sounds higher to me. For years I've honestly thought that people weren't actually matching the note to the instrument and that it was all for show. Because it just sounds completely different to me.
I downloaded a pitch monitoring app but it's not helping me, because I don't even know what pitch a lyric in a song even is to begin trying to match it. I have no musical experience. I don't own an instrument and neither does anyone I know. I live rural and there's no local music center. There's no singing coaches near me that I can access. How am I supposed to learn to match pitch this way? If anyone has any tips that don't involve me spending money (can't, I'm poor) please let me know.

2023.03.29 08:20 Soggy-Pressure-8745 What am I supposed to say when I come out?

This may be a bit long for context. I don’t do so well in social situations and genuinely don’t know what I’m supposed to say. It’s incredibly awkward to come out to people who I don’t converse with on a daily basis. I specifically want to ask this sub because I view my transness as a medical condition and I’m not willing to cut certain people out of my life if they have trouble understanding.
So there are 3 groups of people I want to come out to. My maternal family, my paternal family, and my piano teacher. I’m already out to some of the cousins. I have one confirmed transphobic aunt, but I don’t really care. There are some other complications.
Complications: 1. My mother is transphobic. However, coming out to the rest of the family would NOT put me at risk. But I believe that she’s already started to corrupt them. She badmouthed my chosen name to my paternal family despite no one knowing about it. This is what lead to some of my cousins knowing (they were the only ones who could pick up on the clues). She started corrupting a maternal aunt, I’ll see if I can link the photo in the comments. I’m afraid that if I come out and they all support me, but my mom will corrupt them all (except the cousins). 2. My family is progressive (mostly Democrat and NDP) but I’m afraid they’ll have a hard time understanding. My grandfather told my sibling that he’d always love them and it didn’t matter if they were gay, straight, or bi. I don’t think he was trying to exclude trans people, maybe he forgot. 3. My grandparents are getting old and maybe it’d be best to stay closeted before they pass and avoid extra confusion. 4. I’m not always good at expressing myself and I would need to script out the whole conversation, but I don’t know what to script. 5. My piano teacher seems progressive, but she is older and I fear that she may not understand. I value my relationship with her A LOT and really look up to her and I’m afraid that I would lose that. I’m afraid that it’ll feel incredibly awkward and out of place to come out to her.
I want to come out to everyone so I could have a senior recital where I don’t feel disgusting. All of this would have to occur over the phone because we don’t live near our family. The only exception is my piano teacher but I don’t want to lose previous lesson time.
I only have a couple supportive adults in my life (some of the cousins) but they all live far away and I didn’t know where else to go with this :(
