2023.06.07 14:33 chocobridges Start of Academic Year & School Summer Woes
Our son was born the first week of July. Very close to the holiday weekend. My husband is a hospitalist at a nonteaching hospital. Last year we got in trouble because he took every summer holiday weekend off. He didn't know about Memorial Day weekend. He ended up working July 4th. And basically threatened to quit for Labor Day weekend because that's when our COVID postponed wedding reception was. His boss doesn't have a scheduling system in place at all.
This year we're avoiding all the holiday weekends. And my parents decided to throw my son a bigger birthday party at the end of July. They live 5.5 hours away. Today we find out that everyone's taking vacation that weekend. They have two people going to fellowship, one person's finishing his non-compete and going back to his specialty, someone on maternity leave, and the graduating residents aren't starting until after boards.
Every summer keeps getting worse. Our school district has a 90% attendance requirement so we have to take vacation in the summer next year on. My husband is thinking of going indepent because it's ridiculous. I really wish we had a full year school option in our district.
Is it just this job? Or are a lot of attendings in a hospital setting dealing with this?
Bonus: my mom asked why all my cousins who are residents weren't coming before I told her about my husband's schedule. I think I should tattoo "July is the worst month" on my forehead.

2023.06.07 14:33 halffast Where can I reserve or rent a private room with WiFi for a video call?
I do monthly video calls with my therapist but don’t like taking the calls at home because I don’t live alone. I’ve been sitting in a quiet corner of a restaurant or cafe but would really prefer a private room where I’m not bothering other people, and not self conscious about speaking about private topics in public.
The library offers private study rooms for free which is perfect except you can’t reserve them in advance.
Any ideas for where I can reserve or (cheaply) rent a room with WiFi for an hour? Any location in St Louis City, County or St. Charles is great.

2023.06.07 14:33 moreganohh Programmed to feel guilty when I put in the same amount of energy as my Nmom.
Lately I've been fighting hard against the feelings of guilt that pop up when I don't initiate interactions with my Nmom. She has consistently wanted attention my whole life (I'm assuming her whole life, I cannot confirm past my own experiences), but refuses to put any effort in to get it. It's to the point that the rest of my family also believes it's my job (and theirs) to maintain a relationship with her. She very, very rarely initiates any interaction between her and I, but when we go extended periods without talking (or if she just feels like someone else has gotten more attention than her) she'll whine to my sister until my sister calls me and tells me to call my mom (my mom knows I have a hard time resisting my sister's guilt trips). My brother and sister both talk to my mom first thing every single morning (as is expected of them), and tell her absolutely everything. She's great at grilling people to get all the information she wants in a way that comes off as interest... It's really just data collection to use as manipulation. She needs to know if her children are paying more attention to anyone else to guilt them into paying more to her. It has been a really hard fight, but I've gotten to the point where I only call her once a week at most now. We do still text almost every day because of a group text she and my sister force me to take part in, though my sister is busy on weekends so Friday-Sunday is usually pretty quiet. I'm assuming it's because my mom won't text me directly otherwise and she knows I won't text her as much now, so she leans on the excuse of my sister sending pictures of her kids to both of us to keep conversation and contact going between us. When I asked to stop the group chat, her exact response was "but the group chat is what keeps me going every day". So I'm supposed to sacrifice my mental health and productivity to make sure she maintains contact with me, great. After that my low contact defense line became "I'm trying really hard to be productive and my phone is a distraction, so I won't be on it as much." Which definitely buys me time to put off responding, but still leaves the expectation on the table that I will eventually respond.
I've greatly reduced the amount of effort I put in, but it still weighs heavily on me in the form of guilt. I'm tired of being the only one putting in effort, just to be manipulated by the effort I do put in. It's so much work to filter absolutely everything I tell her and to resist her intense questioning. Lessening contact has been my only way to get some relief.
I keep hoping that some day she'll drop her manipulation tactics and just want to interact in an honest way, maybe even drop the expectation that I have to put in so much effort... But I know that will never happen. Even after the very long conversation I had with her about how she's codependent on her children, she didn't change a thing, though she did acknowledge that I was correct. 32 years of manipulating me into thinking it was good that we were ultra close has made it so hard to fight for my autonomy and independence. I've seen her for what she really is now though and that keeps driving me forward in my quest for freedom from her manipulation. I don't owe her anything.
Thanks for reading my rant!

2023.06.07 14:32 aviationkay The only thing I hate.
I rarely use the word hate. But some of my jobs policies are pretty outrageous. so back story. I went to the clinic we have and I have strep throat. I can barely swallow, breathe, or turn my neck. My tonsils are really swollen. They told me take a couple days off. And gave me the meds. I was told to turn my paperwork (the clinic gave me) to scheduling. I was told that I would be penalized point wise. Because I’m calling off sick. Even tho I am contagious. And I also have sick time to use. But I will still be penalized. The same thing happens when people have covid. Is anyone else’s job like this?

2023.06.07 14:32 redditreader8148 35 days free
I haven’t taken a single mg of adderall in 35 days. What is helping: - went to AA - got a sponsor - did a full month of exploring my powerlessness - built a network of women to text or call when I felt weak - did 1 thing a day to make amends to my body (run, walk, yoga, meditation) - told my doctor I think it’s a horrible drug and I don’t ever want another prescription and I didn’t want to hear about alternatives - was prepared to suck at my job and told my boss I had a temporary health issue that might require me to take some time off for “appointments” - aka naps, walks, online meetings, sitting & scrolling, whatever I needed to get through a hard day
I can say it was going pretty well until I quit vaping 5 days ago, my focus is nonexistent, the mental obsession is real, and I feel like I’m going through a dark night of the soul, but I know there is a new level of freedom on the other side of all of this and I’m using the same tools that got me here to get me through another 24 hours.

2023.06.07 14:32 Ok-Reward-6390 21 [M4F] Brazil -3/anywhere -- not uninteresting man looks for a good thing
I haven’t even flirted for such a long time, and lately, during those boring lunches where people just talk about heiresses’ dogs’ illnesses (a Pomeranian dog shares all her illnesses with her owner) or gossip about some technocrat who has a limp and who may be cheating on his partner, and while rice with cod is served, I am asked “darling, are you dating yet?”. No, I am not, and here I am, mostly because dating apps are too dull – unfortunately the odds of being flashed by a Jewish 19 year-old from Manchester is smaller on these things, though sometimes you might have some luck and end up being insulted randomly by a Portuguese girl, who is visiting her uncle.
I do have names, and surnames, and I was born in a big city in Brazil. My sister used to describe our childhood address as “a building with cars and trees and buildings”, which is a rather good description of much of the city. For a while I wanted to join the seminary but after having to face the fact that this was an inadequate career choice considering I didn’t believe in God and had always found masses to be awfully boring (though fascinating at times – the priest at my childhood church used to go on long rants about things, of which there are many) often turning my back to see the watch, and so I chose the next best thing: I am studying sociology, which involves, in many ways, taking a vow of poverty. I also work at a small online newspaper so I am well informed on sub celebrities and local occurrences such as babies heroically rescued by policemen after choking on the thing babies eat. And yes, I write poetry sometimes.
I am fascinated fairly often by everything, or many things, at least so you won’t be bored. These last days I ended up reading a lot of things about Egypt after reading about Ottoman chief eunuchs being exiled to Cairo after their tenure. In general, I really enjoy the humanities. I follow politics keenly – in fact, there is some chance I might have some thoughts on your country’s politics – and I’d say I am on the centre-left – pro-choice, in favour of a robust welfare state, LGBTQ+ rights, affirmative action. If you know about Brazilian politics, I voted for Marina and Haddad in 2018 (the voting age here is 16), and Lula last year.
As you can imagine, I also really enjoy reading and writing. Besides poetry, I have often thought about writing a novel, but this seems like too much work – and it seems that it would be arrogant of me to write a novel having lived this little, though it wouldn't be uncommon. I really enjoy learning about other languages and cultures and I know a bit of French, German, Spanish, and Russian, besides English and Portuguese. I’d really like to learn Arabic and/or Mandarin. I am really into genealogy, and I know quite a bit about it. I often cry while watching dumb movies (I cried during Minions!) or listening to beautiful music; my music taste has been described as “fairly gay” and in movies as “slightly gay”.
I guess I am pretty introverted, polite, and timid (well, I am on here after all). I am affectionate and I can be really passionate as well. And I am fairly funny, or rather, I have made a few people laugh over the years. I asked a close friend to describe myself, and that is what he said:
I think you’re very communicative. Shrewd, funny, a good companion. Kind of withdrawn but not necessarily shy. You avoid conflict and unnecessary arguments, but love to participate in good conversations. I think you’re very kind too, besides being polite.
As for what I want to do with my life, I am unsure though I am inclined to go into academia. I have been considering applying to a PhD program in the U.S. after finishing my undergrad here in Brazil. My family does want me to go into their business, which is related to politics. I have also considered going into diplomacy.
Who am I looking for? I’d like someone curious about the world around her, and open-minded. The rest? Cultural differences can be interesting and I am open to converting (nominally?) to most world religions.
Some poems I really like:
Some songs I have been listening to:

2023.06.07 14:32 ZealousidealLaw3169 Refusal to address issues in relationship/intimacy issues?
So my pwBPD and I have been going through some rough patches recently. So far, we've had a good week (which I think is because it was their birthday this week) and both of us have been making a conciencious effort to be there for one another. I really so appreciate their efforts thus far, but anytime I try to address some issues with intimacy and vulnerablilty, I'm accused of ''trying to pressure them into sex.' and they'll completely close up and will ignore me. I respect and love my partner, I would never force them into a situation they don't want to be in. I respected their decision but the intimacy issue kept creeping up, so I was explaining how I was feeling hoping for some reassurance and understanding. I had no expectation of anything from my partner, just to listen. I just get hit with ''it's not my job to manage your emotional labour, you're literally whinging at me every day.''I rarely ever bring this issue up, because I know it gets them upset but at this stage, it was making me feel even worse not addressing it (like holding in a massive shit for ages). They don't like to reassure me when I feel particularly insecure.
I told them ''When you're in a relationship, you need to be prepared for emotional labour. If you don't want emotional labour then don't fucking be in one.'' I was, of course, really angry at their staggering lack of care and self-centeredness.
Does anyone else have similar experiences with a pwBPD like this who refuses to reassure you and explicity states that they won't be there to reassure you?

2023.06.07 14:31 xlIIlIIxxIIlllIIlllx Just because I like my work doesn't mean I'm pro-establishmentt
I was talking with a family friend and he was saying that he does the bare minimum because he feels he doesn't get compensated fairly for the work he does. I agreed that pay needs to be raised for everyone. He really got onto a rant about how people need to stop trying so hard at work.
I asked him about people who like to do their work and enjoy it and he went off on how there is nobody like that and if they are they are just brownnosing and probably suck as a person. I told him that I like my job. It's rewarding. Working on tasks I enjoy makes the time pass quickly. I like learning more in my role and I like taking on more tasks. I understand I won't be compensated with anything but more work, but I am good at setting boundaries and saying No when I don't want to do something.
Guy had an absolute meltdown. Even though I genuinely agreed with him about every other point because I like my job. He went on about how I was part off the problem and was part of the establishment and not "the people" and was what was wrong with the world.
I think our friendship is over because he just stopped talking to me and blocked me on all media.
That's too bad (I guess)

2023.06.07 14:31 PresentationLivid822 My men thong obsession.
It started with me being curious about men thongs, "what would it feel like to wear one?" I wondered. So I've found on Amazon a 5 pack of best selling black men thongs. "Just these" I said, "I don't need more".
Well the men thongs were suprisingly comfortable, so I decided to buy 10 more thongs of the same brand and type, 5 dark blue and 5 dark green, "15 is more than I need, and these are 3 manly colors" I justified to myself.
Then I saw on Amazon some men's G-strings, smaller and sexier than the thongs, I had to try them. They had vivid colors like blue, red, green and yellow, "but it doesn't matter, no one's gonna see them". I like them so much I had to get them in every color: orange, purple, lime, teal, nude, and even, pink.
I was obsessed.
I started buying a lot more thongs and G strings, different cuts and different fabrics, in search for the best one. See through, mesh, elephant nose (those are fun to jerk off in, or do the "windmill"), I even bought jockstraps that reveal the whole butt, or see through / mesh boxer briefs to wear in my job (I'm a maintenance men, and sometimes I do plumbing work, and if you think that a plumber's butt crack is bad, than imagine a plumber's pink G string. But the mesh / see through boxer briefs are modest enough for people not to motice if they pop out). On days off I'm happy to wear my thongs / G strings, especially if I won't be meeting anyone, just to be safe.
Anyway I wasted a lot of money because in the end, the comfiest ones I have are the first thongs I've bought, Amazon's best selling men thongs. They are the least sexy out of all of them cause they cover a lot in the front, but this coverage gives my junk good support. No one knows about my collection cause I'm a lonely virgin. At least, I hope no one knows.

2023.06.07 14:31 Una_gatita03 Gallbladder removed two days ago!
Haven’t posted here before but this page and everyone’s advice and stories was a huge support and helping force for me to get my gallbalder removed and I got a lot of positive tips from reading everyone’s posts so I wanted to say a collective thank you to the community :)!
I’m 22 female, curious to see if there are other people on the younger side who have had to get their gallbladder removed! I’ve had lots of general remarks from people that they’re not used to someone in the you get side having to go through a removal. I had two pretty back good back attacks end of February that landed me in the ER and I was highly recommended getting it removed, ended up waiting until after grad to get the deed done (exactly a week after I graduated such a lucky duck).
Anywho! I woke up from the surgery in a lot more pain than I anticipated, particularly a very persistent shooting pain on my right side that took a good amount of fentanyl and something else to ease down. I was in recovery for about four hours before I was able to sit up and change, the car ride back home was a pretty big haze and spend most of the day in bed. The hospital gave me a waist compressor that’s helped a lot when I’m walking around to keel everything feeling tight and my back straight, it definitely helped with reducing inflammation.
Yesterday was better, had a big energy bursts in the am and walked around, sat in the living room to watch tv, but lost steam by the afternoon and wasn’t able to last being out of bed much. My incisions were definitely more bothersome yesterday. I’ve been icing my stomach a lot with lots of cold gel pads my family got me. Very minimal eating since I haven’t been too hungry. Sitting up from bed has felt quite difficult but I’ve finally found an awkward roll over process that’s less painful.
I’m definitely going to try to get up more and wobble around extra today. Anyone have any tips for first week/ second week? I’m feeling a lot better, still some discomfort in the incisions but not super bad, haven’t been able to achieve any bowel movements (mostly because I’m scared it’ll hurt a lot, making any pushing pressure hurts my cuts and old gallbladder spot).
Sorry this is all just mainly unorganized ramble, I appreciate anyone who reads it and goodluck to all in whatever step of your gallbladder journey you’re in!

Guten Morgen bears,
I'm an EAP reciprocity student from the Free University of Berlin, Germany🇩🇪. Our university has asked us to help answer questions for those interested in coming to Germany as an exchange student, so I thought I might as well do that in an AMA here, as that seems a more efficient approach.
If you're interested in studying abroad or just curious about the university you could attend here, about the city of Berlin (nightlife, lifestyle, etc), beautiful Germany and its culture, the experiences of the American exchange students that Ive met with in Germany, or anything else, feel free to ask:)
PS.: if you aren't already, you should really consider coming^^ It's great here

2023.06.07 14:30 DancesWithTreetops An offer to settle
Camping World corporate has made me an offer to settle. Their initial offer is a 1000 dollar gift card with a W9 and a release that if signed would have prevented me from talking about my experience. I rejected that offer and told them I plan on filing a suit in small claims. They responded and said they would remove the non disparagement and confidentiality clauses. They went on to tell me that if I promised to sign they would send over the release. Since I am no longer willing to go back and forth with them, I haven’t responded. Instead I will just write about it here.
I dont know anyone that would promise to sign something sight unseen. The first release was a shitshow. Was I to assume that the second release was going to be any better? Apparently the answer to that question was supposed to be yes.
A gift card restricts me to using Camping World to obtain and install the equipment missing from my motorhome. Which is great, but why the hell would I trust a Camping World with my vehicle after having the Hatfield Mass location put a bunch of miles on my vehicle before I even picked it up?
According to the BBB Camping World has a pattern of deceptive business practices. They actually have a warning on their website stating that. A fact I was not aware of when searching for an RV. But, now that I am aware of their patterns, why the hell would I choose to participate in that bullshit?
I have immersed myself in learning about the consumer protection laws in Massachusetts. Turns out the law is heavily in my favor, and Massachusetts has a great step by step outlining how to use those consumer protections. So I am going to embark on a small claims journey. This will mark a first for me and I will write about it here. The first step is a 30 day demand letter. This is letter summarizing my issues, and the solutions I require. It puts them on a clock to respond.
Rather than endless emails, unreturned calls, and unneeded frustration on my end, the law allows me to transfer that stress to them. I dont expect great things, but I do appreciate that my issues cant be ignored any longer. I also fully appreciate that my issues with Camping World will be a matter of public record.

2023.06.07 14:30 lablabai 🦍 Gorilla: Large Language Model Connected with Massive APIs
2023.06.07 14:30 MakerOfMillionaires [Announcement] /r/MillionaireMakers stands in solidarity with other subreddits in protest of Reddit’s API changes!
In case you haven’t heard, first of all, congratulations.
On July 1st, Reddit plans to change their API pricing structure to a model that will directly affect app developers, moderators, and third-party app users, among others.
Here is a link to an open letter by many of the moderators and communities on the platform in protest of the changes: https://www.reddit.com/ModCoord/comments/13xh1e7/an_open_letter_on_the_state_of_affairs_regarding/
How This Affects Us
The moderators of /MillionaireMakers
use third-party apps to perform their moderation duties best on Reddit. Apollo in particular has been used to post on different accounts, post and sticky relevant threads and comments, access mod mail to communicate with winners, and monitor user activity on the subreddit, some of the features personally paid for to both support the developer and be able to moderate more effectively. It’s also a good app to browse Reddit with, the functionality is intuitive and the design combines the best of Reddit and iOS’s design language.
Another aspect that this could affect us
is that the introduction to API pricing can now mean being charged to run an Entry Thread. I say could
as our API usage in contrast to a third-party app is minuscule, both in scale and in frequency (occasional Decembers not withstanding). However, this is still a serious concern as currently the only financial costs of maintaining the subreddit have been in renewing the website running the mailing list.
How This Affects You
For you, if you use a third-party app like Apollo, Reddit Is Fun, and Sync, then the main way you use Reddit is going to be changed. You must use the official app to explore the platform, of which there could be features lacking in the official version and the potential for trackers. This also puts into risk other features that you may use, such as navigating on old.reddit.com to access the platform.
In addition, your moderators will not be able to moderate. People that rely on third-party apps to access Reddit and perform their moderation duties will find it much more cumbersome or even impossible, as there will undoubtedly be times where there is no easy access to a computer. You will see more spam and irrelevant content without the help of moderators.
What Are We Doing
First of all: We will not be putting our subreddit on private, nor will we cancel the Entry Thread!
We believe that setting this subreddit to private will be either ineffective or, more consequently, detrimental to what the subreddit stands for, and cancelling the Entry Thread, even moreso. Threads here are already limited as it is, with the only posts being from the mod team and from the winners. Additionally, a shutdown will prevent easy access to winner’s donation information.
However, we want to bring as much awareness to the issue as possible! We introduced the API changes when they were first announced as something we’d pay close attention to, we are currently making this Announcement thread expressing our solidarity with other subreddits, and we will once again highlight the issue come this month’s Entry Thread, which will take place as scheduled on June 16 at 23:00 UTC. The most unfortunate case scenario is for this issue to evolve into the new normal, and we want to do everything in our power to prevent that.
What Can You Do
If you’re a user, there are many things you can already do, such as spreading the word on a different platform or contacting the admins expressing your concerns. However, I would also like to encourage the idea of joining a new platform, even if at the moment there are not as many users as you’d expect there to be. After all, if you are the product, then it’d be a shame if there was no more product to go around. I’d recommend taking a look at Lemmy and Tildes. Note on Lemmy though, as you create your profile, use a less popular Lemmy instance such as sopuli.xyz or lemmy.one as the main instance is already sharing they’re experiencing server overload from the influx of people joining. Tildes also has a decently active subreddit as well over on /Tildes
that you can access.
If you work in Reddit, please emphasize to the people around you how detrimental this can be for the health of the users and for the future of the platform. Reddit is not like Twitter, many users here actively participate in and read discussion, others volunteer their own free time out of passion for a community, and if an idea is popular, the community can band together to do incredible things. It is very possible for the people key to moderating on this platform to migrate away, thus introducing a host of problems that you all may not have even considered, and it may not be worth the risk of changing from the status quo into a structure that could have ramifications for communities on here.
We stand in support of subreddits for the ability to use third-party apps to perform our duties as moderators. We will continue to highlight this issue in the times to come. We encourage everyone possible to responsibly take action and see that a difference can be made.
As for the people working at Reddit, as moderators, we again implore you to think of the negative effects that the changes being brought can have as a whole. Moderators rely on these tools immensely and for them to be taken away can be incredibly detrimental. We appreciate your time and we hope that our actions all across the platform have helped you reconsider or become more active where you are.
Finally, thank you to the community at /MillionaireMakers
for taking the time to read this. This is unprecedented for this subreddit, the last time there was a big non-traditional post was around the time of [Draw #73]. Thank you all for your kindness and your attention. /MillionaireMakers Moderation Team

2023.06.07 14:30 standing-ogaytion Tips on finding a career you want to pursue
So, a bit of background.
Been working for years in education, but with how its going in the U.K it isn't the career path I want to follow and after 3 years, I've figured out I really do not like kids.
My current experience is weighted about 2 years hospitality/3 years education, with a degree in English Literature. I'm 26 at this point, so I fall short on apprenticeships for trades sadly, as I wouldn't mind pursuing a tradie career since it's safe from A.I take over lol. The only issue is that I can't deal with heights.
I guess the question is: how to go about finding a career that I might enjoy. The job market here seems to be oversaturated with T.A work and Care work, which isn't ever going to be an option again. When I think about what I want to do, I draw up blanks, as I don't have strong feelings about any career and would do most things for money.
Alternatively, any other avenues of searching other than Indeed/Gov/various job websites? Looking for help in looking outside the box and hopefully get some outside perspective that may make me look at the job search in a different way.
