2023.06.06 21:02 iamprettyinpink I can’t do this any longer, I can’t!!

Everyday I’ve been thinking of taking my life. I think of the abuse my schizophrenic mother had put me thru, I get flashbacks every single day. I feel as if I was in danger when I know I’m not but my brain tells me otherwise. I have extreme anxiety, depression, im not going to work. I reinstated and started taking Lexapro again 15 mg & my dr added 100 mg of gabapentin. I have a therapist. It’s not helping at all. I have racing thoughts 24/7 about my abuse. I fear I’m going mentally insane. I had so much to live for, even if I had ptsd, now my brain is triggering me as if I was on danger 24/7, paranoia, fears, I don’t eat, drink water, sleep, take care of myself. I wake up wishing I didn’t. I has a very traumatic past with my abusive mother. I’m willing to take the damn Valium for the rest of my life if that means I’ll have a normal life just like my gm does with K, I’m just afraid they’ll take it off the pharmacy eventually. I don’t know what else to do. I felt fine for 2 weeks or so after taking Lexapro but now it’s way worse. I panic when I’m alone, I have the worse trauma thoughts, I fear I’ll go homeless, unwanted. I wasn’t even able to go to stay at the movie theater for more than 10 mins, I missed one concert and I will miss another one. I can’t watch tv nor YouTube thinking everything’s abnormal. Jesus, I just wanna live a normal life. It’s too much for me, I wanna have a normal life or rest in peace.

2023.06.06 21:02 WarmSplit2145 My (F18) new girlfriend (F18) looks almost identical to my sexual abuser.

The title is a lot to take in, I know. So let me provide some background before I get into the story.
Throughout high school, I was sexually assaulted and harassed repeatedly by this girl, I’ll call her Amy. I won’t go too into detail about all the things Amy did to me and others during high school incase anyone is easily triggered with this kind of stuff, but the things Amy did to me about 10 other people was almost gruesome. Junior year (11th grade) we finally reported it to our schools administration, because it had been happening since 8th grade for some of us. Amy got expelled, all was fine. I went to therapy to cope with all of this, and so did a few other people. Hundreds of dollars of therapy later, I felt okay with my body and I guess you could say I was as over it as someone could be. No one has seen or heard from Amy since she was expelled, and everyone moved on with their lives. I personally have had her blocked on all social media since Junior year but others still follow her.
Fast forward to the end of Senior year, (12th grade) I meet this girl, I’ll call her Emma. Emma is from a different school, and I met her through a mutual friend. She is so pretty, and is genuinely the first completely healthy relationship I’ve been in with someone. I sometimes got the feeling that she reminded me of someone but for the longest time I couldn’t figure who or what. For weeks we were happy together. Then it hit me. Emma looks almost identical to Amy. Everything from their body shape, to eye color, to facial structure, to haircut, right down to their skin tone is so similar. The only difference I’ve been able to find so far is height. Amy is much shorter than Emma. Now, it’s almost all I can think about when I look at Emma. When I realized this, all of those feelings of SA I went through came back, and I can’t stop thinking about what happened to me for all those years. I feel beyond terrible, because I thought I had finally found someone who makes me happy. And Emma still does. Their personalities are different, which is helping, but that doesn’t stop me from seeing Amy when I look at Emma.
What do I do?
Emma doesn’t know about the SA I’ve been through because we’ve only been together for a few weeks, and that’s not really a first date conversation. I genuinely like her, and had really been hoping that things go well for us. But now with this, I’m so conflicted on what to do. I have tried to forget about the fact, or to look past it to see how amazing Emma is. But they are just so similar, they could be sisters, if not twins. Do I tell Emma about everything? Do I go back to therapy and try to move past it on my own? Should I just wait and hope this goes away on its own with time?

2023.06.06 21:01 Party_Camel_788 Advice if anyone needs it

I am still in my journey to becoming debt free, but wanted to share some of the things that have helped me get to a good place if anyone needs the help.
  1. Reading helped me a lot. It opened my eyes to new ways of thinking and tips/tricks for saving money. I did not learn one thing from my parents about finances, so books gave me the education I never had. The Psychology of Money is an awesome book and I recommend it to anyone trying to get in a better place with money. I also found Atomic Habits really helpful.
  2. I made an excel sheet of all of my finances, I mean everything. I have columns dated every two weeks for when I get paid, I set it up so that the total at the bottom automatically populates as the beginning balance of the next month. I made this all the way out till the end of 2027, which sounds crazy but it really helped me. I could make small changes and see how that would impact me years from now. It gives you a good visual too see how even saving a little can create huge gains in the long wrong. It does not take into account any raises or bonuses I could receive, it’s just a baseline to know that I am covered at the bare minimum and headed in the right direction. I have 260k in student loans from pharmacy school starting up in September, I was terrified but making the excel sheet has helped me plan out how to manage this and I know I will be ok since I can map out the numbers.
  3. I used a personal loan to consolidate 19k in credit card debt, which saved me thousands in interest in the long run. Check your credit card statements to see how much you are being charged in interest each month. I was gaining almost $400/mo on my balance due to interest, that’s $4800 a year in interest alone, not principal. I was scared to do it but I’m glad I did, I now have a reasonable $420 CC payment. But DO NOT rack up more debt on your now balance free cards! Use your spreadsheet to determine what you can afford each month!! We also paid off $11000 on my husbands CC using savings bc it did not make sense to let the money sit there while we racked up debt.
  4. I did not completely cut out spending on things I want. I used my spreadsheet to figure out how much I can afford and plan around that. My Pilates class is $100/mo but the benefits for me have been priceless. Work the things you want into your budget or you will relapse and go on a spending spree.
  5. Therapy. You gotta fix what’s inside that’s making you spend, it may sound expensive but so is credit card debt. There are affordable providers out there, you can look through your insurance’s website to find covered providers. I am lucky to have an HSA that covers the cost of my $150 deductible every 2-3 weeks. You can go once a month if that’s affordable for you. Again, read books. There are tons of books written by reputable psychologists that are really helpful. The Body Keeps the Score and The Drama of the Gifted Child were both very helpful to me.
Good luck!

2023.06.06 21:00 ohellomadeline in need of advice about an aggressive cat

about a month ago i adopted a one year old tabby cat. he was super sweet and cuddly when we first adopted him. now he's changed. he's super hyper and will attack mine, my mother and my father's legs. he also does this weird growling-type meow when he's worked up. at first i thought that it was just the way he meowed but now i'm thinking it has something to do with his playful, almost aggressive-like behaviors. he still once in awhile cuddle, in fact, yesterday my sister came over and he laid with her for an hour while she napped. my parent's want to give him up and bring him back to where we got him. but i would really like to avoid that. i think all animals deserve a chance.
i've tried walking around with a long string to distract him in hopes he won't attack my feet. it works. but my dad won't do it. says it's silly. i've tried a couple calming sprays but those don't do much. i give him plenty of play time during the day and he's got lots of toys. i may take him to the vet and see what they think. but before i do that, i want to see if there's anything else i can try first.
has anyone experienced this? were you able to simmer your cat down? if so how. any advice would be greatly appreciated x

2023.06.06 21:00 AutoModerator What are the benefits and side effects of Ashwagandha?

What is ashwagandha?
The ashwagandha plant is one of the most powerful herbs. Various parts of the ashwagandha plant are used for medicinal purposes, with ashwagandha extract mainly being used in supplements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural agent that reportedly helps the body cope with stress. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may also therefore potentially help with anxiety and depression too.
What does ashwagandha do?
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha is known to help reduce stress and anxiety. One way it does this is by reducing levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress. Additionally, ashwagandha has been shown to improve mood and cognitive function, both of which can be negatively affected by stress.
Enhances Cognitive Function
Ashwagandha has also been shown to improve cognitive function. One study showed that it improved memory and reaction time in healthy adults. Another study found that it improved task performance in people with ADHD. Additionally, ashwagandha may help prevent age-related cognitive decline.
Boosts Energy Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to boost energy levels. One study showed that it increased stamina and reduced fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, ashwagandha may help improve exercise performance.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. These effects can all contribute to enhanced energy levels.
Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. One study showed that it improved insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce fasting blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of diabetes.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. These effects can also contribute to improved blood sugar control.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Ashwagandha has been shown to help lower blood pressure. One study showed that it improved blood pressure in people with hypertension. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can contribute to high blood pressure.
Is ashwagandha safe?
Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for most people. However, it can cause side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and vomiting in some people. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's best to avoid ashwagandha.
What happens when you take ashwagandha daily?
As a sleep aid, ashwagandha may help people get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer. It is also used to promote male potency. Ashwagandha has a variety of health benefits, including reduced blood sugar levels, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety relief, as well as an increase in muscle strength and fertility. Depending on your requirements, dosages vary from 250 to 500 mg per day for at least one month.
When it comes to stress relief, ashwagandha may be as effective as some prescription medications. A 2010 study found that the herb was just as effective as lorazepam (Ativan) in reducing stress and anxiety. click the link below to learn more about abhwagandha, and its real health benefits.

2023.06.06 21:00 Lucky_Swimming_8953 I had to buzz my hair off and I feel DEJECTED (vent)

I had to buzz my hair off and I feel DEJECTED (vent)
I'm completely gutted. Posted this in another sub but I need some curly solidarity. For my first day at the office after my vacations I went to the hairdresser get a haircut, look presentable again cos I let it grow a little wild and needed to take some frayed ends off. I have 3C curls so it takes a while to grow.
The hairdresser botched it, made a nonsensical assymetric mess which my curl shape hates, I told her but what can you do after the hair is on the floor? She was ALLEGEDLY a curly hair specialist but tried to give me 90s Monica (from Friends) layers saying it would suit me. I told the manager of the salon I'm never going back, got a refund but what does it matter? In the end I was giving As Told by Ginger and not Monica at all tbh
Then I went to my dad's barber to try and salvage it, he made it worse. I looked like a soccer player now. I went to dad's house and asked him to just shave it all off. I have a buzzcut now, think Kristen Stewart when she shaved hers. My dad was really sweet about it but I was just sobbing at the end.
This was last Sunday. I'm feeling so insecure, I played up my makeup and outfit, and I'm wearing some beautiful big earrings, but I feel so dejected. My hair before all this was shoulder-length already. I'm never going to a hairdresser again. This is the worst. Thanks for reading 😞

2023.06.06 21:00 LastStar007 [WTS](Chicago) G&G L85A1 w/ SUSAT scope

Glamour shots
I have a G&G L85A1. It could use a new piston, and possibly trigger contacts. It's also missing the charging handle and the EBB part that goes over the gearbox.
What it does have going for it, though, is a bona-fide SUSAT scope made, I think, by Ares. Whoever made it, this thing's metal, it's heavy, it'll take a beating, and best of all, it's got that authentic obelisk reticle.
Finally, don't know what happened to the original NiMH battery, but trust me, it's better this way. It was a PITA fitting the stock battery into the handguard; an 11.1v LiPo has plenty of space and will give better performance anyway.
Chronos at 390 with 0.2s. Wired to Deans. $160 shipped OBO.

2023.06.06 21:00 This_Bathroom_2967 Playful Dog, Aggressive Dog, Help!

In my house, there is a sort of rotation of puppies that we end up holding for a few days at a time; one is Blue (a greyhound? mutt who's 2-3 months old) and the other Ginger (who is at least a few weeks younger than her).
We also have a year 1/2 old dog, Logan, who is a pit mix of some sort. Now, Logan has had little positive experiences with other dogs since we've got her when she was a month-ish old herself. Logan is generally friendly to people who live in the house and generally aggressive to those who don't (including neighbors). She's mostly kept outside except in extreme weather for reasons.
When we first introduced Logan and Blue to eachother, Logan zeroed in on her and then immediately went to bite her. We managed to avoid this and any other attempts (on a leash/chain/harness of course) have not been good on Logan's side.
Blue is pretty friendly and impatient but playful and we don't think she gets that Logan really does not want to play with her. Or any other dog for that matter. Previously, when attempting to take her to a dog park, Logan did not play well with another younger dog.
When Blue is in Logan's personal space, she is very eager and excited but Logan always goes to bite her or otherwise get her to stay away. We've tried putting Blue in a cage to see how Logan reacts and she either a. ignores her, or b. growls and circles her when Blue goes to do a little play bow.
I'm sure just leaving them alone and away from each other is the safest option but I do want to know what could possibly be done to correct this behavior on Logan's behalf.
*I don't think it's her scent or anything considering she has little to no reaction whenever I pet Blue and then go over to her.

2023.06.06 20:59 Valha28 EWW: The Limit

Hello and welcome to episode 66 in a series inspired by u/kamikazeb0y and CinemaSins, where I'll be sinning each and every episode of Gumball.
Quick Disclaimer: I know this is just a children's cartoon and isn't meant to be taken seriously. This, like the show itself, is not at all meant to be taken seriously or considered an actual critique of the show. It is all in good fun.
With that out of the way I present you, Everything Wrong With: The Limit!
Anais: Mom, instead of milk, can we have chocolate milk? Nicole: No. Darwin: Instead of eggs, can we have chocolate eggs? Nicole: No. Gumball: Instead of bread, can we have chocolate bread? Nicole: No She's refusing to get them any chocolate yet has marshmallows and rainbow cake in her trolley, which are equally unhealthy. +1
Also, why don't they just go and buy some candy themselves with their pocket money and then go and eat it in the car or something? +1
Gumball: Screams and cries while lying down and bangs on the floor] I WANT THAT CHOCOLATE! Nicole sighs, and just as Darwin and Anais copy Gumball, Richard starts screaming Okay, I get Gumball, Richard and maybe even Darwin doing something like this, but Anais? Sure, she's only four but she's more way mature than the three of them combined. it seems extremely unlikely for her to ever do something like this, as well as all the other childish things she does throughout this episode. +20
Darwin: You know what we should do? We should make full-sized paper models of ourselves, set the car on fire, and push it off a cliff to teach Mom a lesson. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST DARWIN! i WOULDN'T EXPECT THAT FROM GUMBALL, LET ALONE YOU! +10
Gumball On microphone Customer announcement! As support for our campaign, Huggy Bites are offering a life-time supply of jelly beans for the first to mega-hug the blue lady in aisle three How did Gumball manage to get access to the store's microphone like this? Surely someone would have stopped him. +1
Anais: What would it take, to make all this, go away? Richard: Eighty-twenty. And throw in some Huggy Bites as well for tricking me and those poor customers. Hahahahahahaha -1
Nicole turns back and gives a powerful and deadly death stare to Richard that somehow blows all of the items off of the shelves. Richard stares in disbelief as his chest goes limp and this is why you never mess with Nicole Watterson! -1
Nicole: Sighs Oh yeah... After the day I had, that's just what I needed to... A broken bone sound Gasps I can't move! What did you do? Can you undo what you just did? Hexagon lady: A...Actually, I...I need to go speak to my manager, 'cause I normally work on the deli counter and I... I gotta go. It's not clear is she's making up an excuse or if this is true, but If she really does work on the deli counter then why was she ever allowed to practice chiropractic on someone? Nicole is now prime for a lawsuit. +1
Richard: Oh come on! It's not that difficult! You open the bag Opens the chocolate bar, you eat the candy Munches on the chocolate bar, you put the bag back where it was, and no one will ever know. He threw away the bag when he opened the chocolate only to suddenly have it again +1
Nicole: Let me get this straight. I asked you to finally step up as a father and set a good example for your children, and the way you interpreted that was to take them shoplifting? Why was she still walking around with makeup on her face rather than going to the bathroom to wash it off? +1
Nicole: That's it. I think you've all done it. You've finally pushed me over... Laughs Darwin: Over what? Nicole: Her eyes turn yellow The limit!The rest of her family look confused Richard: Does that mean we can get a candy bar? Nicole's hands sprout razor-sharp claws. She moves reaches towards Richard but manages to restrain herself, breathing heavily, and instead punches the nearby electric regulating box. Electricity crackles as the supermarket loses electric power Nicole: You need to... Her eyes glow yellow Demonic Voice! and thus one of the coolest ideas in the entire series is revealed...aaand only ever used once, never appearing or being mentioned again after this episode. There were so many awesome things they could have done with the limit! How powerful is the Limit? What powers does it have? Does Gumball have a limit and the same anger powers too? How does Nicole even have these angers powers in the first place? All of this potential and absolutely nothing was done with it. Luckily some of us stepped up to the plate instead... +30
Nicole continues searching for Richard. She then sees him, and begins charging straight for him. Richard screams as she approaches, but Nicole hits the TV that he was broadcasting himself on instead. Richard stops screaming and continues to run Why was Richard screaming if he was inn a different isle and couldn't see Nicole charging? +1
Nicole then stares through the wrapping, melting it out of the way as she slowly approaches her cowering family. Why are the kids cowering? They know she isn't after them. +1
Guard 2: Peeks out from behind the shelf Speaks nervously Is she gone? Anais: Depends. Do you have what you promised?G uard 2 hands out candy bars to the kids Not gonna lie, little disappointed the kids got their way in the end. Means them saying they learned their lesson and apologizing meant nothing and was nothing more than a lie to appease their mother. +1
Total Sins: 67
Most Sinned Episode So Far: The Hero (1, 490, 894) Least Sinned Episode So Far: The Banana (-5)
Right, now speaking of Limits, I think it's way overdue that we checked in on Gumball and see how he's holding up after going past his...
...something tells me that the incident at school was only just the beginning, and things are about to get far, far worse.... ;)

2023.06.06 20:59 SOSLoverWangNumber1 6/6/2023 - SOS Limited Announces Planned ADS Ratio Change to occur 6/16/23 - What this means for you and me
" NEW YORK, June 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SOS Limited ("SOS" or the "Company") (NYSE: SOS) today announced that it plans to change the ratio of its American depositary shares ("ADSs") from one (1) ADS representing five hundred (500) Class A ordinary shares to one (1) ADS representing ten (10) Class A ordinary shares (the "ADS Ratio Change").
The ADS Ratio Change is expected to take place at the open of trading on June 16, 2023 (U.S. Eastern Time) (the "Effective Date") and is being effected simultaneously with the one-for-fifty share consolidation of the Company's Class A ordinary shares, par value US$0.005 each (the "Share Consolidation"), which was approved at the Company's annual general meeting of shareholders held on May 1, 2023. The planned simultaneous Share Consolidation and ADS Ratio Change will not affect the number of the Company's ADSs outstanding or the ADS trading price on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE"). ADS holders of record on the Effective Date will not need to surrender their ADSs to the depositary bank for cancellation or exchange in connection with the ADS Ratio Change. After the ADS Ratio Change, SOS's ADSs will continue to be traded on the NYSE under the symbol "SOS"."
So, what does this mean for you and me?
After the one-for-fifty share consolidation or reverse stock split, each fifty ordinary shares of the Company will be combined into one ordinary share of the Company. Therefore, the new total number of issued and outstanding shares will be reduced to 64,296,887 shares. Meth: 2,991,571,853 Class A Ordinary Shares divided by 50, plus 223,272,525 Class B Ordinary Shares divided by 50, which equals 59,831,438 Class A share plus the 4,465,449 class B.
Since one ADS currently represents 500 ordinary shares, the new ADS ratio will be adjusted accordingly after the consolidation. The new ADS ratio will be 1:10, which means that each ADS will represent 10 ordinary shares of the Company. Therefore, the new total number of ADSs will be 6,429,689 ADSs (64,296,887 divided by 10), or the exact same that it is today. Also, the CUSIP will change on June 16th. Note that our CUSIP already changed in July 2022 after the last 1:50 ratio change.

2023.06.06 20:59 ScrotumMcSemen Wait listed at NYC Consulate

Today I requested to book an appointment for Italian Dual Citizenship at the NYC Consulate and got notification that I am waitlisted with 6000+ people in front of me. From what I have read on the internet, some people are still waiting 2-3+ years for an appointment. Does anyone have an estimated time frame when I can get an appointment and citizenship? And if there are faster alternatives, whether it's 1948 case or applying directly in Italy? Feeling super jaded as it seems this process will take like 10 years especially applying at the NYC consulate.

2023.06.06 20:59 havefun2442 Seeking Advice: Trading a Paid-Off Vehicle with Poor MPG for a New RAV4 Hybrid - Considering Daily Driving Comfort and No Towing Needs

Hey fellow RAV4 enthusiasts,
I hope you're all having an awesome day! I find myself in a bit of a dilemma and could really use your insights and opinions on a significant decision I'm contemplating.
Here's the situation: I currently own a vehicle that is completely paid off, but unfortunately, it has poor fuel efficiency. However, the trade-in value for my vehicle is surprisingly higher than the out-the-door price for a new RAV4 Hybrid. This got me thinking seriously about trading it in for the RAV4 Hybrid, which offers excellent fuel economy and would better fit my lifestyle.
There are a couple of factors that are making me unsure about the decision, and I'd love to hear your thoughts:
  1. Towing Needs: I don't use my vehicle for towing purposes, so the RAV4 Hybrid's towing capabilities aren't a crucial consideration for me. However, I would like to tow a small trailer for yard waste and possibly a small boat.
  2. Duplicate Vehicle in the Household: I should mention that my wife already owns the same model vehicle, but the gas-powered version. While having two similar vehicles could make sense in terms of maintenance and familiarity, I'm concerned it might become redundant. Have any of you dealt with a similar situation? Does having two identical vehicles in the household complicate things or create any unexpected challenges?
  3. Trade-In Value vs. Out-the-Door Price: The fact that the trade-in value for my current vehicle exceeds the out-the-door price of the RAV4 Hybrid is certainly an enticing factor. Considering this opportunity, even with the concerns mentioned above, do you think it's worth taking the trade-in value advantage and making the switch to the RAV4 Hybrid? Based on the sheet the dealer gave me, i would get back $1300 after taxes, tags and fees.
I truly appreciate any advice, personal experiences, or insights you can share. Your valuable input will play a significant role in helping me make a well-informed decision. Thank you so much for your time and assistance!

2023.06.06 20:59 akujii_ I’m completely alone, possibly because of my disorders

First of all, I’d like to apologise for the language structure of this post. English is not my first language and I’m trying my best to write this in the most correct way I’m capable of.
I’d like to give you some background for the events i’m gonna describe later in this post. As long as I remember, I’ve always been the lonely and hurt child. I’ve come across toxic people only, I was SA’d by my uncle and never really recovered from that, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety at approximately young age. All of that and other things made me extremely untrusting towards people. It’s hard for me to make friends, to find a love interest whatsoever. The only ‘crushes’ I had, turned out to be only interested in my body and nothing more.
Now getting to the point. I’ve always been the so called therapist friend. Which lead to many people taking advantage of me. In December 2022 I met this guy, let’s call him Michael. I was surprised how freely I could talk with him since I built a wall around me to protect myself from being hurt all over again. Michael is very interesting, charming and funny guy. I finally felt like I met someone who truly wanted to talk to me. Yeah, as you can guess it never went any further. Lately he stopped talking to me, if he responded to my texts it would be a thing to celebrate. I tried not to be pushy and I just asked a few times if he’s okay, if something happened. I never got an explanation. It really hurts, because even tho I like my own company and being independent, I really lack love and care. I decided to not let it get to me and I try not to care about it. But it’s not that easy, you know? In my entire life, I’ve never experienced close relationship, love or anything. But it is what it is, I can’t do anything about it. The next and last person I want to mention is my best friend of 3 years. Let’s call her Avy. We are soulmates. So you’d thing why i bring her up in this post. I feel like she doesn’t care about me. I call it fake concern. She’d only get interested when something really happened, for example when I tried taking my life in December 2021. For a long time now, she never asks about my feelings and expects me to always be there for her. That’s why I stopped telling her anything. And if I finally decide to open to Avy, I always get response like “F”, “well that sucks”. Also I can never tell her when something she does bothers me, because she takes it as personal attack or something. I find it really toxic tbh. I don’t really text her anymore, maybe sometimes. These two people are the only ones i had any contact with, so now I’m again all by myself. I feel hurt and unheard. I’d like to add that I also suffer with Borderline Personality Disorder which makes me think I’m always the problem. I’ve met with so many opinions claiming not to get in touch with someone with bpd. It hurts even more. I feel like I’ve always tried to be good to people, make them feel validated and seen. I can’t think of any other reason why people leave me other than my disorders. I just want someone to truly care about me.
I’m sorry if this post is chaotic, I spontaneously decided to write this. If i remember anything else important, i’ll try to add it in different post or smth. Thanks for reading

2023.06.06 20:58 Raistlin43084 The Big Reason More Players Don’t Love Marvel Strike Force

(This was longer than I intended; there is a TL; DR at the end.)
I think Marvel Strike Force is a great game. I will 100% stand by that belief. The problem is Scopely. And by Scopely, I don’t mean the devs or the community managers. When I say Scopely, I mean the decision-makers.
The problem with Marvel Strike Force is that Scopely does not seem to make any genuine effort to design the best game that they can. They seem to have no interest in making a game that is simultaneously fun, thoroughly QA’d, and extremely profitable.
Instead, Scopely seems to take almost the opposite approach. Scopely’s goal seems to be to try and make the game just not quite bad enough for players to quit, and make money by any means (regardless the cost to product quality or players’ experiences).
The last few years it feels like Scopely has increasingly designed this game to have an adversarial relationship with their players/customers. Too often, I have felt like the challenge in MSF was dealing with Scopely obstacles, not game content.
Information and events are so unnecessarily convoluted. Scopely is actively trying to make the game less approachable, if not outright sabotaging players and/or alliances from being successful. Moreover, many of these events feel like mindless, low quality screen time designed solely to coerce us to hoard/spend resources how Scopely tells us and when.
Lately, new content seems crafted almost solely for the purpose of making old teams prematurely obsolete and sell new teams (that pretty much come with shorter and shorter expiration dates). From the Incursion raids to seasonal room buffs, Scopely has made their intentions abundantly clear.
The latest example is players need 20 g18 non-horsemen characters to complete dd6. For the last entire year, players spent money and time unlocking and building horsemen. Yet, Scopely went out of their way to make sure the horsemen would be completely obsolete for the purpose of gaining access to dd6 content.
Maybe all of this allows Scopely to make a lot of money, but it makes for a horrible customer and playing experience. When I play other games like Marvel Snap, I feel appreciated. My time, my money, and my playing experience all feel appreciated. I feel like Scopely appreciates none of these.
For the record, I want MSF to make money. I am proud when I see the game is doing well. But at the end of the day, this product is supposed to be a live service mobile game. That means things like QA and fun should be more than just punchlines and lip service.
TL; DR - Some jobs pay just enough so employees don’t quit. Scopely has taken that philosophy into mobile gaming. They try to design MSF to be just not quite bad enough for players to choose the option of quitting.

2023.06.06 20:58 asdbnmrty AP Mines - How does AOE damage work?

Don't have much experience with mines, thinking of investing in AP mines.
How does the AOE for AP mines work? Is the damage a sphere around when it blows, or is it direction based opposite of how it was placed?
I ask because several instances I know I walked over and tripped enemy AP mines (heard the click, followed by the explosion) and sometimes I die instantly while others I take literally no damage. I was walking (not sprinting) so I doubt I outran the explosion radius (though some soldiers have +10% run speed perk, don't know if I was on these soldiers at these times). Can't tell if bug or something to do with mine mechanics.
Any AP mine placing tips to get the most out of them would be appreciated.

2023.06.06 20:57 PhysicsKush How to deal with slow repliers at work?

I think I'm going crazy. There's this senior in my team, I've never experienced this before, every time I ask him a question he takes at least 30 minutes - 45 minutes to reply. Usually it's 1 hour and more for a reply. Today I waited 3 hours for a reply. He's not in a meeting, he's not absent, he just sees my Teams notification asking for help and just quite literally ignores me, all the freaking time.
I ask him at most 4-5 questions a week so I'm not spamming him. I would ask other seniors in my team the questions instead, who always answer immediately, but I have to work with him on this long project.
I would tell him about it, since it's literally driving me insane and it puts me in a bad mood for the day (I see this as a massive lack of respect), but he's the one who does my follow-ups with the manager (who gives me promotions) so I must maintain a good relationship with him.
I feel stuck, this sucks. Taking 2 hours to answer a junior who asks for help is sad, especially when done multiple times. I want to collaborate and to finish my tasks, idk what to do. How do you deal with slow repliers?
Every time I want to ask him a question now I'm like: "Oh well here we go, I'll have to wait for a few hours for a reply while he's literally active and not in a meeting, fun". This is not pragmatic and promotes a bad team work engagement.
[Note] Please don't tell me the utter obvious: "Do something else while waiting", I am.
