2023.06.06 22:09 randyclause When do you know it’s Long Haul?
This was my fourth infection. The other 3 I recovered from, but this time I tested positive 5/26 and negative 5 days later on 5/32. Fever, congestion, sore throat is gone.
Now I’m left with fatigue, nausea, muscle weakness, joint pain, twitches, chest tightness, trouble concentrating, and insomnia.
I pushed myself too much while I had Covid, walked up a bunch of stairs, worked from home, and had a major stressful even in my life. So I’ve also had a lot of anxiety and sadness on top of it.
Is this Long Haul, or just from the infection and constant anxiety?

2023.06.06 22:09 Honest_Outside2771 Immune suppressed wedding!
I'm immune-suppressed (Rituximab) and hosted a wonderful 95-person, 3-day, 100% outdoor wedding this past weekend. I didn't get sick at all, everyone took amazing care of me, and we had such a blast.
We had covid testing from every guest, and anyone who had any symptoms of anything wore a mask.
My symptoms flared a little in the week prior (probably just logistics-related stress) but during and after the event, no symptoms, no stress!
I was very seriously reconsidering the wedding after my diagnosis, but I'm so glad we went through with it.
I've seen posts on here about people worrying about doing things immune-suppressed. Something like this takes a LOT more planning and risk-mitigation, and the risk is never zero, but this is just a reminder to follow your heart (sensibly) in whichever direction it leads you.

2023.06.06 22:03 noMoreTyppos Diarrhea & constipation caused by home?
White male/female, 39 years old, southern Ca. We aren’t on any medications and are healthy.
My wife had constipation for about 10 days and I’ve had diarrhea in the same time span. We recently took a trip for 3 days and both of us returned to a healthy state after our first night away from home. Within 12 hours of coming home, our symptoms returned.
This makes us think it’s something in our house. What could it be?
I’m checking for mold & can’t find anything (waiting on a test kit to test my vents). I’ve cleaned our coffee maker and refrigerator too.
We have two young children who are NOT effected. So strange…

2023.06.06 22:00 swat_mobile Keep smelling incense when there isn't any
Weight 65 kga
Duration of complaint recurring 2-3 weeks
Any existing relevant medical issues NA
Current medications NA
During the Covid time after I fell ill and recovered (pretty sure it was covid coz I haven't been through a fevecough like that before, but wasn't tested) I kept getting an incense smell in my nose. It was a recurring scenario for like 2-3 weeks/1-2 days per week. Now recently, I had a sever throat infection and after I recovered, I again kept smelling incense like it's inside my nose for a whole day today as I am writing this. If i take deep breaths it does away. But comes back when I breathe normally. I am fully vaccinated against Covid. (2 doses)
Should I be concerned? Include a photo if relevant NA

2023.06.06 21:52 Danciusly Merrifield’s self-driving shuttle will transport its final riders this month
The autonomous, electric Relay shuttle will cease operations after June 23, concluding almost three years of bussing passengers around the Dunn Loring Metro station and the Mosaic District in Merrifield. https://www.ffxnow.com/2023/06/06/merrifields-self-driving-shuttle-will-transport-its-final-riders-this-month/
Since launching on Oct. 22, 2020, the shuttle has provided 356 trips, as of last Thursday (June 1). While attracting riders was a struggle at times, the pilot project was successful at demonstrating the potential and challenges of using the technology for public transit, Fairfax County Department of Transportation Chief of Operations John Zarbo says...
The first state-funded test of its kind in Virginia, the Relay pilot was intended to last just one year but got funding for multiple extensions, as the county and Dominion Energy, which owns the vehicle, waited out the hit that public transportation took nationally during the pandemic.
According to Zarbo, ridership has increased in recent months as the sense of COVID-19 as an emergency has faded. He also attributes the uptick to changes to the shuttle’s route and schedule that took effect on Dec. 5.

2023.06.06 21:44 kilianwegner Long-Covid Symptoms - Sharing my story
Hey everyone, long but maybe a helpful post incoming.
I wanted to share my experience in depth with getting ill very suddenly in October of 2022 (8 months in)
so this will be a bit of a longer post. I’m posting this to see if there are some similarities out there, maybe if anyone had some advice for me or even just share some progress, treatments or approaches.
Also for anyone reading that’s having a hard time with symptoms & long covid, I am keeping positive and will keep this post positive too. I strongly believe we will find the mechanisms at work; there is already so much research, testing etc. going on so please try keep your head up there’s a lot of people in this and a lot are getting better too. I am 28, male, active and healthy before this and had little to no health problems prior. What happened to me at the beginning:
Went on a weekend away with friends at a quiet Airbnb near a beach from Friday through to Monday. Stayed at the airbnb all weekend and had some alcoholic drinks, using the hot tub and just hanging out.
I woke up on Monday morning and immediately started to projectile vomit and could not keep even a sip of watefood down. Vomiting at all is a very rare occurrence for me even after drinking so this was immediately a red flag. After about 3 or 4 hours this eventually subsided during the trip home.
After feeling not the best (flu-like symptoms with upset stomach, hot & cold, sore lower back) for 2 days after arriving home; on Wednesday I felt a dissociation/spaced out feeling come on suddenly while working at home & had what I felt was similar to a panic attack (heart racing, cold hands and feet, lightheaded) and after lying down from this I was slammed with the worst headache I've ever had. And this is where all my symptoms started. I can’t remember exactly when I tested (maybe 2 or 3 antigen tests at home) for covid during this time but it may have been a few days or maybe even a week after this but it was a negative test so for a long time I did not suspect covid. I was leaning more towards a bacterial or virus from the hot tub initially. What followed:
Below are the symptoms I’ve experienced since then, I also contracted covid at the end of February so I’m unsure if I had Covid twice, or a post viral syndrome from another virus or bacteria that was exacerbated by Covid. EBV, Cytomeglo and further virus testing has come back negative and reading symptoms I feel that there is a lot of similarity with long-covid symptoms mentioned by everyone here.
Newer Symptoms (After contracting Covid):
- Headache - almost constant (mild to severe) (severe sinus & tension type headaches, ice pick headaches & pain at back of head as well as front and temples).
- Neck & Shoulder Pain - almost always (sharp or dull)
- Back Pain - often - mostly lower with stomach pain & sometimes middle & upper back
- Fatigue - occasionally - this seems to be on the milder side, can get through days fine.
- Sinus Swelling - often - CT scan showing persistent sinusitis - post nasal drip often follows. this particularly sucks and is very uncomfortable.
- Brain Fog - often, slightly less - comes with sinus swelling at times.
- Heart Palpitations - less often than before, sometimes onset - throbbing feeling in head and all over - multiple ECGs & 24hr Holter Monitor showed nothing.
- IBS - often for the first few months, now more rarely - irregular stool (size, frequency), undigested, sore abdomen strikes suddenly and can cause intense abdominal pain and diarrhea.
- General feeling of Malaise - often
- Tinnitus - often - sharp noise occasionally, low level ringing often.
- Dry/allergic/irritated eyes - occasionally
- Hacking up phlegm - often, onset
- Dermographism - occasionally - only real visible symptom that I’m having
- Twitching - more often recently
- Chest tightness - occasionally - breathlessness, short of breath or dry cough
- Mouth Ulcers & Eye Styes - every month or so, much more common during illness
- Anxiety & Depression - occasionally - related to health condition, have had good mental health until this. very up and down in progression. feel waves of sadness throughout the day or week.
- Pain in testicles - sore for a period of time, has come back a bit - Epididymis on left testicle side swollen, scrotum tightening occasionally, testing showed nothing. This is quite limiting for exercise & running
- Paresthesia - rare - feeling of sunburned skin (stomach, forearms, top of hands, nose and back of neck) - itchy sensations around body. This has subsided since it happened first.
- Hands turning red occasionally - especially when walking.
- Pain in joints, spine, hands - often - arthritis like feeling
I wanted to add how things have been for me personally. I feel like I’ve been through my own hell so far. In the first few months I was doing fine as I assumed it would get better in a few weeks, maybe next month, definitely before Christmas etc. while managing symptoms and hanging on to the words of my favourite google search “does post viral syndrome go away” which always brought me the answer I wanted “it is temporary”. During February my mother was diagnosed with cancer and as an only child I think this is where my mental health began to suffer. In March when my testicular pain began I seen another doctor who mentioned central sensitization and my mind and ability to cope plummeted. I was scared out of my mind and I began to wonder if I would survive and had relegated myself to permanent disability for life. I would get a lot of awful feelings out of nowhere, an impending doom sense that was pretty engulfing. Thankfully I have an incredible partner who has been with me every step of the way and she has kept me from some very dark places, I am extremely lucky to have her. I worked for the initial 6 months after getting sick (work from home job) and told my work straight up that I needed support and to role back my responsibilities. Unfortunately as my mental health declined around March I had to step away from work (thankfully insured for now) but was unable to properly look at my work screen, do complex tasks or manage my work without feeling sluggish and needed to step away every 10 or 15 minutes. The medical side:
I have seen a number of doctors, specialists including 2 A&E visits. Listed below are who I’ve seen and what I’ve done in chronological order. Thankfully have a close family friend who specializes in virology and took my case on to dive into deeper. After tons of testing for what feels like every variation of medical issue, the only thing that has shown up from all the testing done was a very recent positive test for Anti-CCP-AKS which points to polyarthritis as a symptom not a diagnosis. I have a gamma camera scheduled & a colonoscopy too for the summer. In terms of medication I did about 2 months on Amitriptyline, it probably helped some symptoms but I gained a lot of weight so stopped, I have found it hard overall to tell what helps and what doesn’t. One day I’ll try something I think “oh this helps” and then a few days later I’ll suffer symptoms while trying it out. I have tried my best to avoid taking medication and stick to supplements only. Tests:
- Multiple Bloods - Initially B cells found, Anti-CCP-AKS (Positive at a low level)
- Urine - Normal
- Physical - Normal
- CT - Normal
- Chest X-ray - Normal
- Ultrasound of Abdomen, Scrotum, Thyroid, Bladder - Normal
- MRI of Brain - Normal
- Food Poisoning (Walk-in GP)
- Acute Onset Virus (Urgent Care Clinic)
- Tension Headaches (Urgent Care Clinic)
- Bacterial Sinusitis (Walk-in GP)
- Viral Sinusitis (Walk-in GP)
- Post Viral Syndrome (Urgent Care Clinic)
- Post Viral IBS - (Gastroenterologist)
- Nothing to offer (Mentioned Central Sensitization is controversial) - (Neurologist)
- (Suspected) Central Sensitization (Internal Medicine - Referred)
- Post Viral Syndrome from unspecified Virus (Internal Medicine - Family Doctor who is following up)
Here’s what I’ve been supplementing & doing to support.
- High water consumption
- Vitamin B, D
- Omega 3 (3000mg daily)
- Magnesium (600mg daily)
- Probiotics (Align 1 capsule per day)
- Coconut water, multi-vitamin & electrolytes
Overall I feel a bit better but having plenty of attack/relapses/waves or whatever we want to call them. I find the biggest help is sleeping or resting as much as possible, hot showers and eating right. I’m happy to answer questions and see what compares. I would love some more advice on supplementation as I know its basic at the moment.

2023.06.06 21:42 Waltzing_Duck2 No diagnosis for cat with worsening symptoms
Age: 6-8 years
Sex/Neuter Status: Neutered male
Breed: Unknown (orange shorthair tabby)
Body weight: 11lbs
History: Indoor cat with occasional, supervised access to a balcony. Eats Science Diet for weight management. Adopted as an adult from a rescue shelter.
Clinical signs: Snoring/wheezing, occasional coughs and sneezes, mismatched pupils, swollen eyes and lower lip, squinting and discharge from eyes
Duration: 1 year
General location: New York
Hello! For the past year, my cat has developed more and more severe symptoms without a known cause. At first, I noticed snoring as well as occasional wheezing breaths, coughing and sneezes while awake. In the Fall, his eyes became glassy and I noticed dark spots in his irises. By January, his pupils were different sizes and he began squinting and blinking often. One of his eyes is now clouded, there’s yellow discharge and he’s been shaking his head. At every stage, we took him to our vet but haven’t been able to find a cause. They did a chest x-ray, prescribed heart-worm medication and eye drops, completed several eye exams, blood work, urinalysis, and an ultrasound of his abdomen. He was diagnosed by an ophthalmologist with “idiosyncratic uveitis,” but the rest of his tests came back clean. He remains alert, and continues eating, drinking, playing and using his litter box like normal. An internal medicine specialist recommended a CT scan of his head as a last resort. Based on his other test results, she was skeptical he’d developed anything serious like cancer and suggested the symptoms might resolve on their own.
It’s been a year and I’m anxious to help my cat feel better. Is it possible he’s developed an allergy? Should we try different food? Are there tests we’re missing? I’d be grateful for any suggestions or advice on what else we can try! TIA 🙏🏻

2023.06.06 21:41 Dry_Television2228 Welcome All!
Vision Loss can be a frightful thing, especially when it happens suddenly and permanently. I was sick with COVID from November 22-30 of 2022. Basically one month to the day later, I started going blind. I have patches that are totally blank spots, and blurry haze scattered about the retina of my eye that basically looks like an overexposed photograph.
It's been about 6 months and many stressful tests later. Here I am with no definite answers. I have more visits to the eye doctor scheduled and my vision may be getting worse, as a sentence of text in one eye looks smeared and splotchy. I also for months now have experienced visual phenomena where it will undulate back and forth, looking like an overexposed film roll. Point of the Community
Personally, I'd just like to move on with my life and leave this chapter behind. At the same time, vision loss can feel isolating. If there's anybody who may be experiencing vision loss as a result of Covid or its complications, this place is for you.
I have seen mention of the loss of vision and visual disturbances on the LongCovid
forum, but they seem to be few and sparse over there. This is specifically for the vision loss and disturbances. That's what the V.I.P in LongCovidVIP stands for, "visually impaired person". Please be nice and respectful. We can share some encouragement and try to be upbuilding. Most importantly, we can find community and reassurance we're not going through this alone.

2023.06.06 21:16 remember84 Strange symptoms 1 year postpartum
36f. 5 foot 3, 130 pounds. On omeprazole medication for reflux for the past 2 weeks. Non smoker. Not any major health issues prior to birth. Periods came back at 10 months postpartum and are regular like clockwork. I had my second child a year ago and stopped breastfeeding 6 weeks ago.
I’ve had strange symptoms over the past year that haven’t got better:
- dry sore eyes, styes, blepharitis (seeing an eye dr many times) eyelashes falling out
- reflux and nausea (like I’m pregnant- I’m definitely not)
- excess saliva
- bladder pain like a uti, but not a uti and bladder pressure
- itchy skin
- kind of feeling allergic to things
I’ve had a lot of blood tests done including the thyroid however only thing I had was low ferritin a year ago and I am taking iron for that. Doctors think it might be hormonal - so maybe I just need to be patient?
I’ve had Covid twice, once when 4 months pregnant with second baby and once at 10 months postpartum.

2023.06.06 21:14 SmoothRunnings DIY Electronics Question
I am not sure if this is the proper thread for this, but where I work the mens washrooms are inside a room, and each washroom has a door inside the room that has a door to it. It's pretty silly how the owners configured it years ago. But I got to thinking it would be cool to add a light (this one below) outside the main door then have a circuit with a transformer inside a box that connects to the light and to two door sensors like the ones security companies use.
When both bathroom doors are open the green light comes on, when just one door is open the orange light comes on, and when both are closed the red light comes on. This would save people having to walk all the way down the hallway to find out both doors are closed.
I also started to think there has to be a circuit already that does that out there, I am sure someone has invented something like for if not for this reason for something else but I don't know where to look or what to look for, does anyone here know?
Here is the light I would like to use: https://www.amazon.ca/LUBAN-Industrial-Rotatable-Flashing-Switchable/dp/B086ZJRNGC/

2023.06.06 21:08 sorati_rose [WTS][KY] TM Spas-12 w/ folding stock, KSC Mini Uzi, WE Tech G18C Gen 4 with upgrades, Replica ACOG, M4 Midcaps, G&G UMG high caps, OD Green gear, UCP gear, other guns for local pickup
Howdy, long time buyer first time seller. Unfortunately SHTF for me financially in the past week due to being furloughed (and will stay that way for some time), and I need to sell of just about everything airsoft related I have bought since the new year. I'm effectively treating my situation as a quitting airsoft thing (if you can count not even playing a single game as being in airsoft) and plan to gradually list more and more as time goes til I'm recalled to work or things go even further south. Unless picked up 2nd hand (will specify if it has been), everything has been a catch and release, nothing has ever been fielded, just plinked around with and fired a few shots to make sure internals were working. Can provide more pics or firing videos if requested. Unfortunately I don't have a chrono, so I am unable to provide up to date FPS measurements. Since I'm cash strapped, prices aren't exactly firm and might not include costs of shipping (been selling on eBay recently, shipping is insane a lot of the time, especially for heavier things like airsoft would be). https://imgur.com/a/q8kSpn2 OspreyScopes Pistol Red Dot Sight - $90
- great little red dot for pistols. Worked great for my MP5k and I think it would be great for a P90 as well. KSC CO2 Mini Uzi - $130 -
Catch and release from this subreddit, have only had it less than a month. This is for the airsoft version and not the dangerous airgun version. Has seen some use and has cosmetic wear around the charging slide and mag. The mag is boneyard, the feeding lip at the top is chipped and won't feed into the gun. The CO2 casing is dented and the screw is kind of stripped. It can screw back in but not without difficulty. I have been able to test the GBB system since this is open bolt, and man it would be so much fun to use, it does kickback a good bit even from dry firing. As a disclaimer, I do believe the internals of the gun are functioning and that it's only the mag that is causing it to not fire. If you buy this from me, you must understand that if you buy/have a new mag for this gun and it still doesn't fire that I was none the wiser and not my fault. WE Tech G18C Gen 4 w/ upgrades - $120 -
Another catch and release from this subreddit. Includes the gun, extra rear grip, x2 23 rd GG mags. Unfortunately the original post for the gun is gone, so I do not have specifics about what was changed, however I do believe all the internals had been changed before, save maybe the trigger (a trigger was a bit mushy from my experience). The gun shot perfectly before, however the pin for the mag release came undone and I haven't been able to get it back into place, so I'm unable to load it or make a shooting video of this gun. Extended mags are pictured however those have sold and aren't included. I'll toss in a propane adapter as well. Replica ACOG - $80 -
A great repro of an ACOG sight. Fiber optic is in working condition and has a great sight picture for longer ranges. MAG 130rd M4 Midcap bundle - $70
- A lot of 8 STANAG midcaps in grey, never used, made of polymer. Not separating. Shipping included in the cost since they're lightweight. *PENDING* Tokyo Mauri SPAS-12 w/ metal folding stock + extra shells - $320
- How about something you don't see everyday, a TM with the folding stock? The stock never had the hook at the end, but otherwise it's all complete. Great shotgun that is one of my favorites. It's practically brand new, however there is some cosmetic wear on the rear sight (from folding the stock over) and around the screw point on the stock. Includes 5 extra shells that are all functional and are different brands than TM, but have a fair bit of cosmetic wear on them. G&G UMG High Cap mags - $70
- 3 UMG 530 round high cap mags. 2 are coupled together and can't be taken apart. Both of those have some dirt on them, the other mag has some silver sharpie written on it. I'll toss in an adapter for M4 style guns that apparently make these mags work with those. OD Green gear lot - $200
- Price is for the whole lot. Might separate things if the price is right. Comes with plate carrier, triple pistol pouch, triple 5.56 pouch (open design without velcro), x5 UMP/P90 pouches, x1 admin pouch, x1 large dump pouch, hydration carrier (unused, never put on my mouth), x3 7.62/SCAM14 pouches (2 are still in plastic).

. Since I don't expect to have much interest for local pickups, pics and timestamp will be by request. Can travel about half an hour or so from the 40509 area. I would love to be able to ship these, however I have been unable to find boxes that are long and only a few inches tall. If you have any suggestions to find them so I can ship them, I'm all ears.

honestly this might be my favorite gun externally, the polymer is top of the line. This is the tactical version of the gun, without the fancy scope. There is a bit of sticker residue from those lovely compliance stickers, but otherwise brand new. This is the 2nd gen version where it has an ETU in it. Cybergun FAMAS - $100
- I think I had this for a couple of weeks now? Is yet another catch and release from this subreddit. It's a pretty nifty gun, and while not higher end like the SCAR, it seems like it would be fun to field. Includes a high cap, a midcap, and the bipod. Has a bit of scuffing on it, but nothing major. CYMA AK47 CM.050A - $250
- Absolutely fantastic polymer on the outside, and it feels great to hold in my hands and shoulder. Internals seem pretty good too, it's a CYMA after all. Includes a foregrip and waffle high cap mag. The orange flash hider was glued on funny a

2023.06.06 21:04 CeresInLibra Eddie by Giddy Review: An In-Depth Analysis of Its Performance
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that affects millions of men worldwide. It can be frustrating and impact one's confidence and sexual relationships. Thankfully, there are various treatment options available, including the use of ED rings. In this article, we will explore Eddie by Giddy, an ED ring designed to help maintain erections and discuss its effectiveness, usage, and other important factors to consider.
Understanding Erectile Dysfunction
Before delving into the specifics of Eddie by Giddy, let's briefly discuss what erectile dysfunction is. ED refers to the inability to achieve or sustain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. It can be caused by various factors such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, low testosterone levels, kidney disease, and age.
Eddie by Giddy: An Overview
Eddie by Giddy is an ED ring designed to assist individuals in maintaining an erection. It is classified as a class II medical device by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Class II devices, although subject to FDA registration, do not require human testing. However, it's important to note that FDA registration does not equate to FDA approval.
Pros and Cons of Eddie by Giddy
Like any medical device, Eddie by Giddy has its advantages and disadvantages. Let's take a closer look:
- FDA registered: Eddie by Giddy is classified as a class II medical device, offering some level of regulation and oversight.
- Minimal side effects: Unlike ED medications, Eddie by Giddy has minimal reported side effects when used as directed.
- Comfortable design: The ring is designed for comfort, and it does not block the urethra, which can be an issue with other ED rings.
- Partner pleasure: Eddie by Giddy features ridges that enhance the sexual experience for both partners.
- Multiple sizes available: The company provides assistance with resizing, ensuring a proper fit for optimal results.
- Sizing concerns: Finding the right size is crucial for the device to work effectively, and some users have reported challenges in this regard.
- Learning curve: Some individuals have experienced pinching during the initial stages of learning to use the device properly.
- Cost considerations: Eddie by Giddy needs to be replaced every few months as it stretches out with use, making it a recurring expense. Additionally, the device is not typically covered by insurance.
- Requires dexterity: Compared to traditional constriction rings, Eddie by Giddy may require more dexterity for proper usage as it requires holding the ring in place while attaching the band to the bottom.
Who is Eddie by Giddy For?
Eddie by Giddy is suitable for individuals looking for a non-medication-based approach to maintain an erection. It can be used as a standalone treatment or as a supplement to ED medication if recommended and approved by a doctor. The U-shaped design of Eddie by Giddy makes it easier to put on and take off compared to traditional circular-shaped ED rings. Additionally, its silicone material offers enhanced comfort compared to metal rings.
Why Try Eddie by Giddy?
While prescription medications like ED pills may work for some individuals, they are not suitable for everyone. Medications can have interactions with other drugs and may be contraindicated for those with certain medical conditions. Moreover, they can cause side effects such as headaches, flushing, and vision changes. In such cases, medical devices like Eddie by Giddy can provide an alternative solution. They can be used in conjunction with medications or on their own to help maintain an erection.
Using Eddie by Giddy
Before ordering Eddie by Giddy, it is essential to determine the right size based on your penis circumference and the frequency of your ED symptoms. The company provides a "Find My Size" survey on their website to guide you in selecting the appropriate size. It's important to answer the questions honestly to ensure an optimal fit.
Once your order arrives, you will receive three components: the primary U-shaped device, a blue tension band for looser constriction, and an orange tension band for tighter constriction. You can experiment with both bands individually to find the one that works best for you.
To use the device, place the ring at the base of your penis with the opening facing down, in front of your testicles. Stretch the tension band across the two ends of the device to create a firm but comfortable fit. The fit should be tight enough to maintain the erection but not cause pain or slide freely.
Alternatively, you can place the tension band on the device before sliding it down the shaft of your penis. If applying it this way, it is recommended to use a body-safe lubricant to avoid friction or pulling.
How Does Eddie by Giddy Work?
Eddie by Giddy is specifically designed to work in harmony with the natural process of an erection. Unlike traditional circular ED rings, Eddie by Giddy has a U-shaped design that does not constrict the urethra. This allows for a more natural and satisfying ejaculation experience compared to conventional rings. The ring wraps around the base of the penis and uses a tension band to apply pressure, effectively maintaining the erection. Additionally, the device includes ridges to enhance pleasure for the partner.
Comparing Eddie by Giddy to Circular ED Rings
Circular ED rings typically aim to restrict blood flow from leaving the penis, simulating the pressure process of a natural erection. However, the circular shape can sometimes cause discomfort and restrict natural blood flow, leading to unnatural or uncomfortable erections. Circular rings may also block the urethra, resulting in discomfort during ejaculation or a numbing sensation. In contrast, Eddie by Giddy's U-shaped design is intended to provide a more comfortable and natural experience by avoiding the compression of arteries and the blockage of the urethra.
Cost of Eddie by Giddy
Eddie by Giddy is available for purchase on the company's website and Amazon. It is priced at $188 for a one-pack and $298 for a two-pack. It's important to note that Eddie by Giddy is not typically covered by insurance. While the cost may be higher compared to traditional ED rings, the additional features and comfort provided by Eddie by Giddy justify the price for many users.
Customer Reviews and Where to Buy
Eddie by Giddy has garnered mixed reviews from customers. Many users have reported positive experiences once they find the correct size that fits them properly. However, some complaints are related to sizing issues and the need for resizing. Additionally, as the device stretches out with use, it needs to be replaced every few months.
If you're interested in purchasing Eddie by Giddy, it is available on the company's website and Amazon. Ordering directly from the manufacturer's website offers free shipping, a 60-day return period (fees may apply), and free resizing if you select the wrong size.
Alternative ED Ring: Osbon Erecaid Tension Ring
If Eddie by Giddy does not meet your specific needs or preferences, an alternative option to consider is the Osbon Erecaid Tension Ring. This ring features extruding bumps that apply pressure to veins in the penis, aiding in maintaining an erection. It includes a notch underneath to assist with ejaculation.
Eddie by Giddy is a viable option for individuals seeking an ED ring to assist with maintaining erections. Its U-shaped design, comfortable material, and partner-oriented features differentiate it from traditional circular ED rings. It offers an alternative treatment option for individuals who cannot or prefer not to use medications or other more invasive treatments. However, finding the correct size and understanding how to use the device properly are crucial for optimal results. As with any medical device, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most suitable treatment approach for your specific needs and circumstances. Disclaimer

2023.06.06 20:55 AussieHawker Cornel West is not progressive (or not anymore).
There has been a lot of discussion about Cornel West because of his announced campaign. With a wide variety of reactions. But one reaction I've noted is people who do know how stupid splitting the vote is, but say that he is championing progressive causes or that he is very progressive.
Now he acts Progressive. He says certain buzzwords. But is he? Or is he really just a crank who has gone right? Splitting the Vote for Trump
This campaign is nothing new for Cornel West. From his own mouth
Brother Bernie and Brother Trump are authentic human beings in stark contrast to their donor-driven opponents.
In the 2016 campaign, he was praising Trump over Clinton.And then endorsed Jill Stein
. You don't have to like Clinton, to know how high the stakes were. And of course, as we now all know the stakes were high. 3 Supreme Court Justices, hundreds of lower federal judges, endemic corruption, criminalisation of immigrants, rise in hate crimes, and Trump utterly botching the crisis that happened under his watch, Covid killing over a million Americans.
But lots of people made that mistake as well. However, he is doing it all over again, after all this shit happened.
And Now Trump is even worse. He is explicitly campaigning against democracy itself because of his grudge about losing, he has made a campaign promise to invade Mexico, Ukraine will almost certainly get cut off reviving the Russian invasion and he explicitly wants to purge the Federal government of all non-loyalists, including bureaucratic roles. Cornel West has no hope of winning, all he is doing is taking away Democratic votes. DeSantis, Chris Rufo and Cornel West
However, Cornel West doesn't just have an unfortunate past of praising Donald Trump. He also has a current history of praising Ron DeSantis and working with evangelical right-wingers, and their education causes.
Recently he wrote an Op-ed DeSantis’s Revolutionary Defense of the Classics
By Cornel West and Jeremy Wayne Tate
Gov. Ron DeSantis just gave a welcome boost to the classical-education movement. He signed legislation allowing high-school students to qualify for Bright Futures scholarships, a state fund for college education, by submitting scores from the Classic Learning Test instead of the SAT alone.
This move will likely be portrayed, wrongly, as partisan and conservative. But the greatest works of civilization have always been about spurring—not preventing—radical change. They teach us about the revolutionary ideas of the past and help us better understand the present. The richest ideas of what it means to be human are those that have stood the test of time.
Many of the seminal works of literature, history, philosophy, science and theology were revolutionary in their respective ages. Turn the pages of Galileo Galilei’s “Two New Sciences” and you’ll experience the alteration of humanity’s view of itself in relation to the heavens. By disproving the then-common belief that the planets revolved around the Earth rather than the sun, Galileo laid the foundation for modern science. Isaac Newton, swept aside what remained of the Old World’s scientific superstitions—only to find himself upstaged two centuries later by Albert Einstein’s “Relativity.”
Like revolutionary ideas today, the ideas of yesterday were provocative and, in many cases, much more consequential. Galileo was put on trial because he upset the status quo. In the 13th century, Bishop Stephen Tempier of Paris condemned key works of theologian Thomas Aquinas for being too radical. Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn and civil-rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. were imprisoned for their views. In colonial America, James Madison and his co-authors feared printing their names on the Federalist Papers, so they hid under aliases. Even the most mild-mannered of philosophers stirred trouble for thinking against the grain. Plato watched his great teacher Socrates put to death for his teachings.
Revolutionary figures of the past give us insight into the present and allow for reflection on the consequences of their choices. Julius Caesar, one of antiquity’s most recognizable leaders, teaches us the cost of revolution through his histories. By crossing into Rome with his armies, he ended the republic and created the Roman Empire, a crime for which he paid with his life. But in his firsthand descriptions of the often-brutal tactics he employed to achieve political transformation, he left behind deep insight. Caesar’s direct and simple prose conveys the reality of going to war—all without reference to contemporary conflicts.
That’s one of the virtues of the classics: They are a means of considering what is true without invoking the blind partisanship that encourages thoughtless action. There is nothing we need more today than the cultivation of reason and understanding.
That’s why Mr. DeSantis’s support of classic education has universal merit that transcends partisanship. Education based on values, logic and discipline isn’t Republican—it’s timeless.
Mr. West holds a chair at Union Theological Seminary and serves on the board of academic advisers of the Classic Learning Test. Mr. Tate is founder and CEO of the Classic Learning Test.
In this article, he praises DeSantis for introducing the Classic Learning Test (CLT) to Florida schools. He has a lot of fancy words about the various historical thinkers who went against the grain. Sounds nice. I wonder how Ron DeSantis is treating free inquiry in Florida?
But in reality, this is really just a handout to an incredible niche test used by a handful of Evangelical right-wing schools. The CLT dates all the way back to ... 2015
. It's just a way for Republicans to spend education money fattening the pockets of the CLT advisors to provide these tests, and to push students away from real universities to ones that teach them nonsense. And the guys profiting from this, is Cornel West's co-author on this article who started the test and Cornel West himself.
But also, pushing the 'Western Classics' didn't happen in a vacuum. Ron DeSantis pushed the CLT, as part of his plot to get rid of African American Studies and other 'woke' courses that are part of the AP studies.
TALLAHASSEE — In February, when Gov. Ron DeSantis went after the College Board’s new Advanced Placement course on African American studies, he hinted that Florida might do without the organization’s courses and tests.
Two months later, Republican state lawmakers are preparing to head in that direction.
Using their budget proposal and a bill (HB 1537) that’s viewed as the Florida Department of Education’s legislation, the House and Senate are looking to pivot from the College Board’s Advanced Placement courses and SAT exam to other alternatives.
For the SAT, the state is considering a “classical and Christian” exam alternative called Classic Learning Test. It would be used as an optional graduation test requirement and to determine Bright Futures scholarship eligibility, as well as a college entrance exam at Florida’s public colleges and universities. Schools would have the option to administer the SAT, ACT or Classic Learning Test starting next school year.
For AP, the chambers have agreed to spend millions creating Florida-based alternative courses and tests, asking state universities and colleges to help establish the materials. A third-party organization would help create the exams.
Cornel West's own books would likely be in the firing line of Florida schools for writing about the Black experience in a way that wasn't completely stripped of all real history. And who else is on the CLT Board?
Christopher Rufo, listed as Senior Fellow, The Manhattan Institute. Rufo was also appointed by DeSantis to destroy Florida's New College.
. So he isn't just a think tanker, but directly on DeSantis's payroll.
Also included is Kevin Roberts, the President of the Heritage Foundation.
If you look at the photo the CLT board posted, its literally just a sea of White Republicans.
So Cornel West has no problem writing a public article praising Ron DeSantis for helping free inquiry, as he tries to get rid of any books about LGBT people or Black people and working alongside Chris Rufo, the guy who managed the Right Wings Critical Race Theory panic. Seems bad.
Ask yourself. If a Biden appointee to Education Secretary had this kind of background of supporting the privatisation of schools, and of hanging around figures like these, would you be cool with it? No of course not. The People's People Grift
You might also note from his announcement that he isn't running for the Green Party, which already has ballot lines in many states. But for the People's Party.
Said People's Party is headed up by Nick Brana, and has been championed heavily by Jimmy Dore.
Both Nick Brana
and Jimmy Dore
have been credibly accused of sexual harassment and assault.
And this is what the People's Party online presence looks like https://twitter.com/marionumber4/status/1665768271637782532 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Fx32IR5WAAQTjzf?format=jpg&name=large
Very left-wing. Totally not a right-wing grift.
In terms of the other track record of the People's Party, they aggressively solicited donations and promised that they would run dozens of candidates in the 2022 midterm. They didn't run a single one. Wonder where all that money went?
So the bright spark from all of this is that likely the People's Party will grift all the donations sent in, and not use it to actually get ballot access outside of the handful of states they have access to. His Platform Cornel West's website right now, is pretty limited.
But one issue caught my eye in particular
End the Wars Bring our troops home and invest those trillions of war dollars into American communities. Support veterans, stop all foreign military aid, close the bases, disband NATO, and ban nuclear weapons globally.
Stop all foreign military aid and disband NATO. You know, while Russia is aggressively invading Ukraine. Yet another Leftist that is pro Imperialist invasion by a Neo Tsar.
What wars? Bring the troops home from where exactly. Biden already left Afghanistan and Iraq a couple of years ago.
And I wonder what magical spell he has in mind, to get Russia, China, North Korea, India, Pakistan, and Israel to consider giving up their nuclear weapons. More of the Company he keeps
Other assorted people, he hangs out with
He is of course a constantly returning guest on Bill Maher. https://twitter.com/cassiepmillestatus/1138583273242857472
I wish "Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, and Cornel West walk into a bar..." was the beginning of a joke, but I'm sorry to report that it is actually real life
He decided the prime place to announce his candidacy is on ... Russel Brand. Who went full anti-vaxx and Pro Russia. https://twitter.com/CornelWest/status/1666114005877010432 https://twitter.com/themattdimitri/status/1543780892241543171
Hate group founder Gavin McInnes asks Cornel West to name an American fascist West: There's a spiritual fascism inside all of us... as a Christian I see it inside of myself Candace Owens: The Klan were Democrats West: Yes, they were [As if MLK had no idea of that history of Dems] Reportedly he went on this because Gavin McInnes was offering money to do it, which other figures turned down
Candace Owens: They tried to blame me for a mass shooting in New Zealand, saying that this person got radicalized by my ideas of Black conservatism in America The Christchurch New Zealand Mosque shooter stated in his manifesto Owens was the "person who radicalized [him] the most"
I gave Matthew this footage. I have the full segments for both appearances. At the time McInnes was begging liberals to go on this show offering them $5000 an appearance - Dave Packman, Sam Seder and Ana Kasparian all reported McInnes offered them money.
Selling out for $5,000. I guess we know his price to sit down with a Nazi, on two separate appearances. Conclusion
So if you consider everything. At best, he is incredibly naive and easily taken in by Right-wingers which makes him utterly unsuited to any political position, let alone President. And more likely, he just doesn't give a fuck, and is cashing out. While also being a crank.

2023.06.06 20:53 slushie31 Epic Tour
Does anyone know anything about the Epic Tour
granfondo? I rode it in 2019, and was registered for 2020 but it was cancelled in 2020, 2021 and 2022 due to covid, and registrations were deferred. I've tried reaching out to the organizer a number of times over the year but the only correspondence in years has been the yearly cancellation notice email. Their website lists a date for 2023, but there's no registration page (the link goes to the 2021 ride). Their social media accounts haven't been updated in years either.
Does anyone have any idea about it, or an idea of how to contact anyone there? I really loved the event in 2019 but if they're not running it anymore they should let people know and refund registrations. I have a feeling this is probably going to be lost money but might as well try right?
