2023.03.28 14:27 ProfessionalBruncher Anyone with ADHD? I'm wondering about getting an assessment (female)
I'm really struggling managing core training/exams. I've passed my exams now (PACES took more than one attempt haha) and after looking into why I failed I wondered if I could be neurodiverse, especially as women present differently to men.
I have a longstanding history of anxiety (had CBT but didn't work that well, previously had SSRIs) so it's hard to know if it's just overlap with anxiety but some symptoms I have are:
- Speaking over people, talking way too much. I have to count the seconds in my head before I let myself speak again or I say in my head I won't speak again until at least 2 others in the group have spoken (?masking). I come across as very confident, lots of friends but am deeply insecure and found social interactions as a child very difficult so I think I now have lots of friends to compensate for previous pariah status as an 8 year old (I am always trying to make new ones)
- Struggle with organisation massively, things like applying for a course then study budget/leave seem overwhelming so I just don't even really try
- I can't just write a jobs list down on a medical handover e.g. writing LFTs next to bed 5 amongst lots of other tasks and get them done. I can write that but to get anything done I have to write a separate list which when I'm tired will be broken down into minutiae things like 1. Order 5s bloods and print labels 2. Take Bed 5 bloods 3. Pod bed 5s bloods or I get distracted and will start doing something else like Bed 7s d/c letter
- I can watch a film but I get an overwhelming urge to know things such as age gap between two love interests, how old is the actor etc and have to google it on my phone. Cannot resist impulse to find random things out, easily get lost in very specific Wikipedia wormholes for hours
- Fidget quite a lot
- I sleep fine, but cannot really nap in the day at all
- Always feel on edge/on the go
- When I speak I often go on tangents and mind jumps from topic to topic which other people have commented on as weird
- I get really anxious about things like packing to go on holiday, it takes me HOURS and I deliberate over so many things. How as a doctor can I not just pack a suitcase?
- I don't overspend massively, I actually struggle to make any decision about buying something. Anything over about £15 and I will massively deliberate and not buy unless I have to
- I'm not a "self starter" I struggle with the organisation and motivation to complete even a basic QI project, I need someone pushing me to do things and a set structure with a deadline or I will never actually DO anything
- I struggle to focus on tasks, I am easily distracted, it's hard to know if this is just anxiety though?
- My IMT application was written the night before, we had no interviews so it came down to the white space questions but due to my disorganisation and last minute ramblings on the form I scored quite poorly, I could not get my shit together to actually do this in advance. My life is a series of panicky procrastination and struggling to manage longer term projects.
- I do not do risky behaviours as I am quite anxious! I'm a worrier so I don't do things such as bungee jumping for adrenaline which I know some people with ADHD apparently love. I also never had issues with risky sexual behaviour and have never had issues with unhealthy romantic relationships. I was raised in a very loving and supportive household (very lucky) and have always had good relationship role models and I think I have a fairly secure attachment style.
- I always overshare and can't help saying things, like expressing my pro strike views in front of people who I shouldn't (like rota coordinator who will approve or deny my annual leave) I know my life would be better if I didn't say these things but I cannot help it I just blurt things out like verbal diarrhoea
These all seem quite random. But I just feel "different" to other people and really struggle to manage the admin of owning a house and being in training. I only have a mortgage because my partner sorted all of it out. I struggle day to day and can't imagine coping with work and having children (which I hope to do in next few years). I do have the means to get a private assessment, but getting a diagnosis of ADHD seems "trendy" at the moment so I don't wanna be some idiot jumping on a bandwagon and don't wanna be put on meds for something I don't have if a private clinic just wants to make money.
Also as a child I was top of class (in my terrible primary school) and obviously managed to do all of my exams and as a doctor that makes me a "high achiever" so I don't know if I would meet the criteria.
If you've read all this then thank you :).

2023.03.28 14:26 Deep_Diver_n_Coffee Provisionally Passed
I would like to share my experience with this community because it played an important role with helping me pass yesterday on my first attempt.
Background - The motivation
I originally thought of doing the CISSP in 2018 with a friend who completed his but didn't follow through because work was really busy and didn't have any time.
Fast forward to January 2021 and like everyone we all want a promotion. I approached my boss and he said he agrees and will do the required paper work. After that he kept telling me it's happening 'next month'. He did that for 16 months. During that time 3 other teams internally wanted me and it was at a higher level of my current role. I turned them all down thinking I was getting the promotion. A year and a half later a Director again engaged me, and this time I was not going to say no. I took the job, told my boss, he countered with an official offer, but I declined it. So I started my new job June 2022. I gave myself 3 months to just focus on the new job and then in September 2022 began studying for the CISSP. My motivation was to never be in a situation again where someone could 'hold me hostage' for any extended period of time as having the CISSP provides many opportunities as we all know and see in job requirements.
I got a copy of the CISSP Passport by Bobby E. Rogers and read it cover to cover. I also did all the questions. It's not as daunting as the OSG and wanted to get a nice over view of all the topics. So instead of going a 'mile wide an an inch deep', I only wanted to go a 'mile wide and 0.25 inches deep'
I also purchased Thor's course and watched most of it at 1.25x speed.
That took me 3 months because again I was in a new job and that was my priority. After completing reading the CISSP passport and Thor's course, I began reading both the OSG and AIO books. I took the month of January 2023 to complete cover to cover the OSG and maybe 30% of the AIO.
Meanwhile doing all the reading I was constantly on this reddit group and saw one common theme, do a lot of practice questions.
In February I completed all the practice questions from the OSG and OPT. Whenever I couldn't answer a question I either referenced the OSG, AIO, Destination CISSP Concise Guide and of course the internet for clarity.
In addition to practice questions from the OSG and OPT, I also completed ones from LearnZapp, Boson and Destination CISSP. It was from this group that I saw the AIO was not necessary otherwise I would have done those as well. But one thing I told myself was to enjoy the process, enjoy the journey, again with my motivation to never be placed in a situation where I was waiting in limbo in terms of my career.
So here are my scores for those interested and I don't mind sharing my results as others have in this group which helped me to benchmark my progress:
LearnZapp 81, 86, 81, 91, 84, 84, 76, 77
OSG : 72, 66, 66, 60
OPT : 76, 86, 75, 70
Boson : 62, 64, 70 (didn't do the last one).
I also read Luke Ahmed's How to Think Like a Manager and briefly the 11th Hour CISSP by Eric Conrad.
I booked my exam for March to have a target date set and started to fine tune my game. I made my own cue cards (again from the advice of this group), watched all the videos from Prabh Nair, Peter Zerger, Rob Witcher, Shon Harris and started focusing on my weak areas such as frameworks, law etc. I even watched and enjoyed the videos from IT Dojo questions of the day. Again all this recommended from this group.
The 7 days before the exam every night I did one LearnZapp practice test in it's entirety to get used to doing 125 questions straight. The night before I shut down studying around 8 pm and watched a movie.
Thoughts on Material
In my opinion all the materials helped immensely. Consider it like building a house, how do you choose which tools are important. You have power saws and drills down to paint brushes and rollers. You need them all. You may use some more than others but in the end all the tools help contribute to building the house. Same thing here. All the books, test banks, videos all contributed for me to pass the exam, and on the first attempt, I would not score any greater than the other.
But what I did have was motivation which I shared and we all have our own motivation why we want to pass. I really enjoyed the journey and felt compelled to share my experience with the community since it was this community that helped me immensely whenever I felt overwhelmed, exhausted, or even lost while studying.
I hope this helps just even one person on their journey to attaining the CISSP.

This is an original 'KQRBP vs krp' chess problem generated by the prototype computer program, Chesthetica, using the Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate AI computational creativity method. Chesthetica can compose problems that might otherwise take centuries or longer for human composers to think of, so you may enjoy them right now. There is also no proven limit to the quantity or type of legal compositions that can be automatically generated. The largest complete endgame tablebase in existence today is for seven pieces (Lomonosov) which contains over 500 trillion positions, most of which have not and never will be seen by human eyes. This problem with eight pieces goes even beyond that.

2023.03.28 14:22 Ftw_dabs69ish My (33f) boyfriend (38m) doesn’t want to have sex with me
When I initiate he pushes me away or doesn’t respond. It’s been a month now and I’ve tried to give him space to bring it up and talk about it but he seems totally content, happy even. I ask if he’s okay or if anything a wrong and he says no.
We’ve been together a year and a half. I’ve never had this problem in any relationship I have had before.
He used to worship my body and touch me everywhere and tease me and get excited and now he just mashes at my tits.
He said in the past he wants to explore my body and learn all the ways to please me and do anal and all of that? But he doesn’t seem to want to put in the effort?
I am trying to stay in my feminine energy as I’m the only one who ever brings up issues or talks about how I feel. I don’t want to be in charge of fixing everything and maintaining this relationship alone.
But I couldn’t go any longer it was eating me up inside.
So I told him, all of that, last night. And he turned around and threw it at me. Saying that I don’t want him, etc.
I’ve tried initiating several times in the last couple weeks. I got on top of him and starting kissing him, he barely kissed me back and didn’t even touch me while I was on him. So I stopped.
I tell him that I need a lot of “warming up” to be ready for sex and it’s easier for him to get aroused. I need communication and emotional connection, I need passion.
So I tell him all of this hoping to have a resolution and validation and solution to moving forward, and he just sits there and doesn’t say anything. Doesn’t acknowledge my feelings, doesn’t say sorry. Takes no responsibility. Makes no plan for how we can fix this. Just nothing conversation over.
I feel empty, and I’m not enough for this person. He also cheated on me last year, and that’s another block I deal with sexually. So on top of already feeling like he doesn’t want me I know for a fact that I he didn’t at one point because he sought out other women that could satisfy him.
I’m literally begging him to love me and he just stares at me emotionless.

2023.03.28 14:18 Hamletbum A latina's experience
I'm 18, 158 lbs, brown, 5'2 and well curvy. 36 DD, I work, take care of three dogs, do gardening, and overall do my best to keep myself busy. you'd think it'd be easy for someone who's part of a heavily sexualized demographic of people (women and or latinas) to pull people, right? i thought so too. honestly i think i might have developed a superiority or inferiority complex because of this whole thing over time. anywho, to the explanation.
no. while it's true that maybe i could possibly pull off the act of sex, this is specifically speaking about serious relationships and i fail in that aspect every time. I've only been used for sex and that's all.
I'm the girl a dude fucks to get off and then posts some other chick he actually cares about later while on a date, which i end up seeing in his story (this has happened the morning after btw :) )
I'm the chick dudes sleep on. i once had a dude stupidly convince me he loved me, had sex, and then immediately blocked me. men don't want me, they want my body. it's torture. it's like you have this thing, and it works, but it doesn't get you what you want.
yes, sure, some women get attention. but it's not always good. i haven't had a serious relationship in three years, and that one only lasted six months. i actively avoid talking to dudes because at some point the conversation turns sexual and bro just wants to fuck and that's it. why can't i just have a date where I'm not in some dude's car being offered his penis.
sometimes i just wanna go on a date where the dude brings me flowers and likes my personality, and doesn't just stare at my chest. please understand, this isn't bragging or anything. i am genuinely frustrated and so done. at this point I'm a recluse that refuses to meet new people, especially men. I fear talking to men, especially in social media or in the context of dating because either they'll like me but not the way that i want, or I won't be enough to even be liked in the first place.
you can see where the inferiority/superiority complex idea might come from. anywho, here i am, on my period, feeling disgusting and lonely. feeling jealous that there's people with partners who like them for their personality, while I can't get a second glance without putting my ethnicity as the title. my brother has a longtime girlfriend. my brother's friend is pulling some other chick, and that's cause he just broke up with some other one, and yes, he cheated. but he gets to be happy?
i am extremely lonely, and just don't want the attention of men. they don't love me, they don't like me. I'd rather be alone than be sexualized for one second more.
the pain's awful. i deeply crave to search for someone, but every time I do, they don't want ME. i deeply want to go and initiate conversation, but i stop myself. i don't even want to participate in the "talking" phase or the flirting shit or making out or fooling around or anything, because i already have. I'm sick of it, I don't wanna play games. why spend my time, energy, affection, and emotions on something that only MIGHT end up in a relationship. that's IF the dude isn't in the "not looking for anything serious right now" popular phase that every dude weirdly seems to be doing right now.
I'm sorry, i feel like I'm ranting here. it's just so frustrating cause it's happened to me countless times where the bro's like being the most sweetest funniest most patient guy, i refuse pussy and bro's like well I'm not looking for anything serious. and I'm left there, my time wasted on this dude who wasn't even worth it in the end (if you're looking for something serious).
and yes, on any dating thing i make it VERY CLEAR i am looking for something longterm, hence my anger when i get contacted, only to be told uhhhh I'm not looking for anything serious. :000 whaaat?? that's sooo weird cause i strictly remember putting the opposite on my profile! how strange of you to text me then!
anywho, basically the conclusion of this is that it's not automatically all rainbows and butterflies if you're woman and at least a bit attractive. it's pain for me at least. thanks for reading.

2023.03.28 14:17 Glittering_Pea_6228 William Cooper on school shootings and prozac connection from Behold A Pale Horse, pages 224-225
For many years the Secret Government has been importing drugs and selling them to the people, mainly the poor and minorities. Social welfare programs were put into place to create a dependent, nonworking element in our society. The government then began to remove these programs to force people into a criminal class that did not exist in the '50s and '60s.
The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment.
Author's Note: I have found that these events have indeed happened all over the country. In every instance that I have investigated — the incident at the women's school in Canada, the shopping center incident in Canada, the Stockton, California, massacre, and the murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane — the shooters were all ex-mental patients or were current mental patients who were ALL ON THE DRUG PROZAC! This drug, when taken in certain doses, increases the serotonin level in the patient, causing extreme violence. Couple that with a posthypnotic suggestion or control through an electronic brain implant or microwave or E.L.F. intrusion and you get mass murder, ending in every case with the suicide of the perpetrator. Exhume the bodies of the murderers and check for a brain implant. I think you are going to be surprised. In every case the name of the murderer's doctor or mental treatment facility has been withheld. I believe we will be able to establish intelligence-community connections and/or connections to known CIA experimental mind-control programs when we finally discover who these doctors of death really are.

2023.03.28 14:16 Then_Marionberry_259 MAR 28, 2023 SIC.V BENTON AND SOKOMAN ANNOUNCE EXPLORATION UPDATE FOR KRAKEN LITHIUM AND HYDRA CESIUM DISCOVERIES IN SOUTHWESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND
| || |https://preview.redd.it/fa7yaov52hqa1.png?width=3500&format=png&auto=webp&s=d2a6b1d51249e8bf1633cacae00fb262817462e4 submitted by Then_Marionberry_259 to Treaty_Creek [link] [comments]
Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 28, 2023) - Benton Resources Inc.
(TSXV: BEX) ("Benton") and Sokoman Minerals Corp.
(TSXV: SIC) (OTCQB: SICNF) ("Sokoman") together, (the "Alliance") are pleased to provide an exploration update and outline immediate plans for the 50-50 Golden Hope Joint Venture (GHJV).
The GHJV was formed by the Alliance in 2021 to explore the mineral potential of an underexplored structural belt of rocks in southwestern Newfoundland hosting past-producing gold operations. Within the first week of exploration, the Alliance had discovered the very first hard rock lithium dyke on the Island, and in the fall of 2022, the Alliance discovered the very first cesium-rich dyke. These two areas of high-grade mineralization are now known as the Kraken Lithium Pegmatite Field
and the Hydra Dyke
. Prospecting, trenching, mapping, soil geochemistry, and three (3) phases of diamond drilling during the 2021 and 2022 field seasons, have resulted in multiple new discoveries which remain wide open for expansion. Golden Hope JV Project - Kraken Lithium Pegmatite Field to Hydra Dyke https://preview.redd.it/hh9cebz52hqa1.jpg?width=1476&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cd2f636c601c5583e802612fb6d8616c8862923e
The Alliance would like to report that it has also renewed and received approval for its camp permits along with continued exploration permits for the entire GHJV land position. These permits allow for a fourth phase diamond drilling program consisting of a minimum of 5,000 metres along with prospecting, soil sampling, and geological mapping along the highly-favourable trend.
The fourth phase, 5,000-metre drill program is anticipated to start within the next few weeks and camp preparation will start as soon as next week. Highlights from earlier phases of drilling at the Kraken Lithium Pegmatite Field
have returned very promising results including:
- 1.04% Li2O over 15.23 m, including 4.18 m of 1.48% Li2O and 2.98 m of 1.23% Li2O in GH-22-27 on the newly discovered Killick Zone
- 0.95% Li2O over 8.40 m from 47.8 m to 56.2 m, including 1.76% Li2O over 0.80 m in GH-22-01on the Kraken Main Dyke
- 5.50 m at 1.16% Li2O within a wider intersection of 20.82 m averaging 0.60% Li2O in drill hole GH-22-15 on the East Dyke
- Lithium-in-soil geochemical anomalies of similar strength to the discovery dyke area lie 4 km along strike to the east of known dykes and are top priority trenching targets
The Alliance is also pleased to report that it has received drilling permits for the newly discovered cesium-tantalum-rubidium and lithium-rich Hydra Dyke,
which is 12 km northeast of the Kraken Lithium Pegmatite Field. Initial channel sampling last fall at the Hydra Dyke returned results as high as 8.76% Cs2O, 0.41% Li2O, 0.025% Ta2O5, and 0.33% Rb2O over 1.20 m
in channel sampling(see news release dated December 1, 2022
). The Alliance is planning trenching to be followed by drilling as soon as the snow has melted.
Stephen Stares, President and CEO of Benton, says: "We are extremely excited to kick off the field season at the GHJV and I'm confident that we'll have another successful year on this newly discovered Lithium-Cesium belt. With our large land position, high demand for these much-needed critical metals and rapidly growing concerns to cut harmful emissions, Benton and Sokoman are truly in a rare position to unlock Newfoundland's potential for LTC-type pegmatite discoveries while increasing shareholder value."
Tim Froude, President and CEO of Sokoman, says: "The 2023 exploration program at the GHJV is arguably one of the most important programs we will undertake. The results to date, from an area with no previous critical metal history, have already demonstrated the district-scale potential of the project. The 4 km long untested soil geochemical anomaly, directly on trend from our known dykes, will be one of the first areas targeted, and I will be very surprised if more dykes are not discovered. This still represents only 10% of the strike length of the system that we have under our control." QA/QC Protocols
Rock and core s
amples were submitted to SGS Canada Inc. in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland for preparation and then sent to the SGS Canada Inc. analytical laboratory in Burnaby, British Colombia. All samples submitted were taken or saw-cut by Benton/Sokoman personnel and delivered in sealed bags directly to the Grand Falls-Windsor prep lab by Benton/Sokoman personnel. SGS Canada Inc. (SGS) is an accredited assay lab that conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025. Samples are analyzed using SGS's GS_IMS91A50 method that delivers a 56-element package utilizing sodium peroxide fusion, ICP-AES, and ICP-MS analytical techniques. All reported assays are uncut. Soil samples were collected by Sokoman/Benton personnel utilizing a standard Dutch-auger collecting B Horizon soil where possible. Where B was not present, the material collected was noted. The soil samples were sent to Eastern Analytical Ltd., in Springdale, NL, for Li, Ta, Sn, and Nb assaying by four-acid digestion and analyzed by ICP-OES. Eastern Analytical Ltd. achieved ISO 17025 accreditation in February 2014 (for more details on the scope of accreditation visit the CALA website

2023.03.28 14:14 Independent-Boat6560 I KNOW I’m on the spectrum… but my former therapist told me I’m not because my social skills are “too good”????
I’ve spent years trying to find out why I can’t function the same way as everyone else. I’ve been diagnosed with c-ptsd, anxiety, and depression. I have a traumatic history and most people assume I’m just messed up from it, but I can’t shake that I check every box for a female with ASD.
I struggle with B&W thinking, understanding social relationships, auditory processing, codependency, physical hypersensitivity (I don’t eat meat because of the texture, wear certain clothes because of the feeling), empathy (I feel it but only when I relate it back to myself and situations I’ve been in, and struggle to express it appropriately). I’m hypersensitive to criticism and “overthink” and over explain everything. I struggle with keeping friends and jobs. I struggle with everyday tasks like driving and hygiene.
I’ve developed a lot of coping mechanisms, a lot coming from theater, so pretty much every social interaction feels like a “scene” to me.
I don’t know how to obtain a diagnosis, because when I talked to my therapist a year or two ago, she insisted that there was absolutely NO WAY I could be on the spectrum. I ended up leaving her when I started dreading the meetings and getting triggered for days afterwards.
I’ve recently moved to a new state and have been having trouble making friends— losing the only friend I had here for being “too emotionally expressive”, whatever that means. I do have a partner who is also suspected to be on the spectrum, and we’ve coexisted together for 8 years with our two cats (not romantically or sexually— we just both can’t exist by ourselves).
I don’t know where to start. I’m 27F and feel I’m just another one of those women who failed to be recognized as autistic because I managed to develop great masking skills.
I feel like I can’t validly and honestly say “I’m on the spectrum” because I’m undiagnosed, so I tell people “I’m not neurotypical”, which seems to get even more judgement because it sounds like I’m just saying “I’m quirky!”
…so what do I do here? Should I seek a diagnosis or just go straight into a support group?

2023.03.28 14:12 Medical_Search_8801 M28 Hard time to get over a breakup recently with 26F
So, for the past month, I’ve been losing sleep, I’ve been with this women (F26) we started on the COVID peak. 2020. We started on the wrong foot, it wasn’t that serious, but it go serious at some point. She started to look on my past and shaming me etc and being mean until the day I started asking she said she only had one ex bla bla, everything was going smooth until 1 year later I played soccer with a guy, that she admited that she had a one night Stand with, when asking her why she did this, she said that I didn’t deserve to know I’ve been a scum etc (gaslighting basically) we were living together. We moved to a new apt, shit hit the roof, I started being mean, couldn’t get over it, she started spying on me by leaving phone recording etc. We broke in august 2022, I went out go number of someone etc, but didn’t do anything realizing I loved her and I was sorry saying bad things to her. Beside that she was always loyal and been there for me. When we got back, there was a lot of work to do, on both side, trust has been broken, but we were getting there, lost all my friend on the way because of her, and she still says they don’t love me they are jealous think about them etc. Up to then, I was saving money for a weeding. All was good Until feb 2023, found a phone recording me what I was saying, she contacted another girl asking if something happened between me and her (knowing I’ve never had any encounter with a women since we started dating) and when I asked her about the phone she lied saying she doesn’t have the password, I gave her back the phone, she lied. She ended the relationship on the base that I’m a narcissistic (started therapy about it) and I know I’m a bit narcissistic but a genuine one, never harmed her or anything…
Honestly I’m not sure why I m writing here or what I’m looking for… or even what to do, I’m devastated, sleeping 2h a day, can’t talk to anyone, feeling paranoid..

2023.03.28 14:11 FrEnchFriesOnyOu As someone who was raised with a single parent I can confirm the "daddy left the chat once the baby was born.'' Narrative as true (I guess this could have also happened to you). Here are some of the many irresponsible things my dad has done.
Before I was born and my parents were married, my mom told me that she used an IUD for some time. But then my dad told her that she was better off without it, because she "didn't know if she was fertile or not'' and that if she didn't want to get pregnant she should just follow her natural cycle. Well, one of those days of natural cycle they forgot she was fertile and she got pregnant. My dad was the kind of man who would always say that he wanted children and would love them. I was born, and he didn't even pay much attention to me. This is irresponsible, because he put his wife at risk of pregnancy when he actually wasn't interested in being a parent like my mom.
He even felt a bit jealous of me, I know this because my mom said that one time my month old self, her, and dad got back home after long work hours, and we were all hungry and tired. However, mom had to change my diapers, and wasn't making any food for anyone except me first. So my dad lashed out at her saying things like "why does she always come first?'' "Why do you take care of her before my food?'' ( I think this is what my mom said).
When they got divorced I was one month old, or maybe two? The thing is, I remember my mom saying to me honestly "when we divorced, the only things he cared about keeping was his car, and the things he bought during the marriage.'' After this divorce he disappeared out of my life, he didn't even care to be present at all for at least the first 3 years of my life. Mom said that he lived close by to us but never even cared to check on me.
After I was 3 years old, my dad had gotten married again, and had my sister. Basically, he didn't even pay attention to his first kid and is already trying for a second. Nice choices we're making. Close to this timing, one of my aunts (also his aunt) and my grandmother ( who is his mother), kind of persuaded him to show up back into my life, so he decided to file a lawsuit against my mom for "separating me from him'' which he lost. However, the judge did agree that he should take some responsibilities because after all he was my parent. They suggested him that he should take me to school, or go visit me more often. However, he refused this and said that that would be too much of a waste of gasoline which is expensive, he even had the audacity to demand in court that my mom PAID HIM gasoline to go see me.💀 However, even if he felt like he couldn't do these tasks, he didn't feel much like volunteering for any other expenses or responsibilities. He just wanted control over a kid but without making much sacrifices. He later disappeared again like he always does, like he knows I exist but ignores it.
When I was a kid growing up, the school staff from my kindergarten noticed that I drew weird family pictures whenever they asked us to "draw our family'' because I never drew my dad in it. So they started to ask "where's (insert name)'s dad?" And my mom had to tell them the truth. Sometimes throughout my childhood I did compare myself to other families who did have a dad and wondered why I wasn't like them. When I was around 8, dad was still absent like always but I did go out with him a few times, almost all of the times that I went out with him were because I had to request my mom to see him so that I could tell him I wanted to go out with him. I WAS A KID MAKING THE FIRST MOVE ON COMMUNICATION WITH THEIR PARENT WHEN IT SHOULD BE ALL THE WAY AROUND. FYI I forgot to mention that these going outs kept happening until I was 10.
After some time I moved from my country of origin, which is where he lives, and I finished getting raised in the US. After my teen years I started noticing all of the reasons that make my dad bad parent. When I ask him why he's always been absent in my life he always puts the same excuses of "your mm and I were divorced'' or "she was getting you away from me.'' FYI my sister did have a close relationship with him because they lived together until she was 7, and after his divorce from her mom they kept contact with. So at least I know that he didn't make with her all of the mistakes he did with me. However, I can't judge how well his parenting was with her because I don't know too much behind appearances.
I have expressed to him many times how I feel after I started realizing that he isn't a good parent, every time he wants to talk to me I'm so prideful and so defensive, I just don't trust him. He has even apologized to me for being "a bad parent''. I know he's never gonna change, he's never going to be like my mom, a real parent. He's the kind of person to say hello today and then never talk to you again for months. And on top of the fact that I know the way he is, he still has the audacity to say "I love you"? Excuse me? How does that make sense? It gives me cringe whenever he says that and I never wanna say it back.
yesterday I was talking to my mom about how ironic it is for men to wat to children they don't want to take care of after we casually mentioned my dad, she replied "And you're telling me? Most men are that way.'' To all women out there, there is no way of surely foretelling if this "daddy left the chat'' narrative will happen to you if you want a baby with someone, due to the fact that everyone is different. When you choose to have children, besides considering all the sacrifices you are going to have to make as a mother, also consider that your husband who supposedly "loves you'' today, can have a bad relationship ending at any minute and leave the responsibilities of being both mother and father only to yourself. :)
FYI: All of the crudely truthful things my mom told me about my dad were after I was teen and tarted asking some questions about dad, beforehand I didn't think about any of this much. This info I tell is based on what mom has told me and some of the things I know myself from experience.
Sorry for the long thread, thank you for reading!

2023.03.28 14:11 Alaazaal96 QATAYEF
You’ll fall in love with the Atayef
as soon as you taste it! I can make that promise! They are essentially the Middle Eastern equivalent of pancakes and are filled with a variety of delectable ingredients. Typically, street sellers in Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Morocco, and Egypt produce atayef
(also known as qatayef
). These days, they may also be found at bakeries, and some individuals even make them at home. They are so well-liked that having Atayef throughout Ramadan feels mandatory. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
HOW TO MAKE ATAYEF FROM SCRATCH?
The ingredients for atayef
, which are quite similar to pancakes, are flour, semolina, yeast, milk, baking powder, salt, and sugar. If you’d like, you may also use vanilla or rose water. They’re usually fried on a griddle or nonstick pan without any oil, but they’re only fried from one side and folded, which is very interesting because they’re just like thin pancakes with two sides — one is lace-like, and the other is velvety because it hasn’t been fried on that side and is full of bubbles! https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
are best served the same day. However, if you need to make these in advance, you can create the pancakes in advance and store them in an airtight bag in the fridge or even in the freezer. Ashta is the traditional filler for atayef asafiri. Ashta is a whole milk-based clotted cream. Although it may be made at home. Pancake batter and this atayef batter are quite similar, however the latter is runnier. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
TYPES OF ATAYEF Regular atayef
are typically larger, have a crunchy exterior, are filled with either nuts (walnuts, pistachios, or almonds) and cinnamon or with white cheese (Ricotta can work), and are then deep-fried and covered in (or drizzled with) a sweet rosewater syrup. Less frequently, they are baked with a little bit of oil and then covered with the syrup. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/ Atayef Asafiri
, also known as a little atayef, is a type of atayef that is typically smaller in size, has a soft shell, is served without heating or frying, and is frequently filled with cream and pistachios. You can load this type of atayef with anything you choose, including Nutella, fresh fruit, nut butter, and more! Giant Atayef
are enormous, typically filled with cream and almonds, but they can also be filled with white cheese and drizzled with sweet syrup.
The technique is very important
it is pretty easy but you have to read the directions carefully to comprehend it. Depending on the type of flour and semolina you use, the recipe I’m sharing with you may call for 1/2 to 1/4 cup more or less. While the batter is quite thin, frying your first atayef pancake will allow you to determine if you need to add extra water or not. Your batter is excellent if you see a decent quantity of bubbles; if not, you will need to add extra water to the mixture. Working with a very thick batter is a typical error when preparing atayef
HOW TO MAKE ATAYEF
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Next gently incorporate the wet components into the dry mixture while continuing to stir. Put your batter in a warm location, cover with a moist towel, and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes.
Pour the batter with a spoon into a preheated nonstick pan over medium heat (for little atayef, use 1 tbsp, for medium-sized atayef, 2 tbsp, and for big atayef, 1/4 cup). The Atayef
pancake will begin to bubble, but make sure that there are many bubbles present because if there aren’t, your batter is likely too thick. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
The amount of time it takes to cook each pancake should be between one and two minutes, depending on the size of the atayef
you’re producing. They’re finished when the final drop on the surface dries and stops shining (remove from pan immediately). Move to a tea towel, being sure to cover the pancakes with the towel so they don’t dry out too soon (that can result into atayef that are difficult to fold and seal when you want to fill them).
Joz, which are cinnamon-flavored walnuts, and “jibneh,” which is unsalted white cow’s cheese that has been soaked in water for days to remove the salt, are the two most common fillings for atayef. Ricotta may be substituted for white cheese if it is unavailable by adding a little honey and rose water. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
HOW TO STUFF THE ATAYEF?
Just take each pancake in your hand, fold it into a half-moon shape, and spoon in one to two teaspoons of the filling to stuff the atayef
. In order to seal the Atayef, be careful not to overfill them. Using your fingers, pinch the pancake’s edges together to completely seal it off like a parcel. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
The Atayef may explode while being fried or baked if they are overfilled. Continue doing this until you have stuffed every Atayef
ATAYEF CAN BE EITHER FRIED OR LESS COMMONLY BAKED
Fry the filled Atayef
in hot corn oil (approximately 1 cm deep) until the edges are slightly yellow and crusty. Then take from the pan and quickly submerge them in the sugar syrup (or drizzle them with it). Place the atayef on a cookie baking sheet, then brush with corn oil to bake. Bake until crisp and golden at 200°C (390°F). Serve after drizzling with the sweet syrup. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/

About Me: My name is Justin and I have been playing music for over ten years. More specifically, I play guitar, mandolin, banjo, and a little piano for a while now. I have been producing music digitally for a couple of years now, using FL Studio. I am now looking to begin writing music for games that are in need of such a thing. As I’m just beginning, I’m not looking for big payouts or anything, just looking for some cool projects to be a part of and if there is pay involved that’s a plus. I am looking for any type of project that has a dedicated team behind it. I love to collaborate so I hope to hear from you about your project! I will add a link to my soundcloud so you can see a bit of what I’m capable of. I have worked on only one game to date and you can find that piece of music in the playlist that I am linking below.

2023.03.28 14:08 natooral-skeptic Pain/anger emerges again and nothing seems to compare to the ex - what to do?
Usually I post helpful things on here, but this time I kind of am looking for some input myself. Let's share some ideas on the following scenario:
So my latest breakup is about 1 1/2 years in the past, and when she left she tore some scars of old wounds open by doing the exact same thing almost every other ex of mine did: Tossing me like a fruit, seemingly out of the blue even though there clearly has been premeditation going on (like searching a new apartment behind my back etc.), leaving me alone and miserable, trying to build myself up yet again after my trust has been violated and my loyalty abused.
I am doing better now than I was doing back then, and I opened myself up to dating other women. I did a lot of introspective work and started questioning my own behaviour to understand what I might have done wrong in order to grow. Still in shape, working out four days a week. To others I seem "happy", at least that is what I get a lot of times. So that's that.
What nobody sees: That until this day, I experiences moments in which I am just completely destroyed. Sometimes all the pain emerges, usually out of nowhere: Just yesterday I stood in the kitchen, cooking a meal and did burst out in tears just because my mind went all over the place, remembering the awesome times I had with my ex, just to keep terrorising me with that thought that she's gone, banging the next best dude she hooked up with for her nonsensical rebound that ended within just weeks, and all of that. To make it worse: Those moments I am honestly trying to understand how a sweet and presumably loyal and caring girl could do this insane 180° turn: She went right from having a healthy and "natural" relationship with a decent guy to full on superficiality mode, trying to act like a fashion diva on her socials (so I heard, blocked her a long time ago), being the exact opposite she once used to be. To me, that is insanely painful because yet again it feels as if I invested five years of my life into building something with a person I considered worthy as a partner, just to figure out that this "perfect fit" seemingly is an illusion.
Anyway, my point: I really want to grow beyond these feelings, because when dating nowadays, every girl I met so far just does not even slightly compare to how my ex used to be. Which is twice a kick in the nuts given that that "old version" of my ex seems to not be real, maybe never has been.
So yeah, any thoughts? Cause all I want to do is: Move forward and find a true and lasting love in my life. With a person that's not total plastic and BS but one that actually cares. And yes, my trust issues are still there: I mean after all, even the one I thought would finally be the right one for me did what all the others also did to me: Leaving without even having a proper talk. I don't know what to do, honestly, because at this point in time, I see two routes: Understanding that the majority of people are pretty messed up, egocentric and f....ed up *bleeps* - which means I have to figure out how to be alone for the upcoming time. Or "lowering" my expectations in terms of dating women I do not see fit character-wise, which at best leads to a bit of shallow intimacy but also does not help.
Any thoughts? Questions?

2023.03.28 14:07 vrlkd Hillingdon 20 (miles)
|Goal ||Description ||Completed? |
|A ||5:50/mile or better ||Yes |
Hillingdon 20 was the final race of my post-Christmas winter season.
Previous races were Fred Hughes 10 (miles) and Cambridge Half Marathon.
Fred Hughes 10 in January was a write-off when I got held up by a van for ~50 seconds around mile 4 (and had to stand completely stationary until it cleared the road). Ended up jogging home in ~58:05 where I had set out hoping to run 56:30 ish.
Cambridge Half Marathon in early March was an A goal race. All was going swimmingly until 10.5 miles (5:30/mile average pace to that point), but then I tried to pick up the pace and both calves cramped instantly. I needed to slow right down (45 seconds per mile) and hobbled home in 73:14, when at mile 10 I was hopeful of 71:xx.
So - Hillingdon 20 had arrived. What I really wanted was to nail a race; have no regrets and be fully content. No calf cramps. No vehicles blocking the way.
My training for this block was roughly 60 miles per week with a Tuesday interval session, Friday threshold session, and quality long run on Sunday. Rinse and repeat.
Woke up at 5am. Weather forecast was accurate: it was bucketing rain. Went for a 10 minute shakeout and whilst it was very wet, there was almost no wind. Could be worse.
Met my club mates at 8am to share a car journey the ~3 miles to the race start. Picked up our race pack on entry and then went to get changed in the clubhouse.
Didn't do much of a warmup due to the rain and the fact it was a 20 miler: lots of dynamic stretching, a few strides, etc. All seemed fine.
In previous years my goal time today (1:56-1:58) would be good enough for a podium finish, but this was the first post-COVID year where the race was being held in March before an April London Marathon. Historically a lot of faster folk have used this race as a pre-London tune up. My club mate was on the lead bike and he confirmed to me when I arrived that there were indeed a lot of 'big dogs' in the field today.
Race started at 9am. After 1km it was clear that there were indeed plenty of faster guys in the race. I was in 12th position and already the front 2 were a way ahead.
The race itself is a ~5 mile lap done four times. It's undulating: over 700 feet of climb in the race overall, with most of that coming in one big climb halfway into the lap. But, you come back down that hill almost immediately, so if you pace yourself right, your average pace should not be too affected. The downhill is a potential quad buster because you're doing it four times in total.
So - back to the race. Around 1.5 miles in I found myself next to one other guy, and we were maybe 5 metres off the next pack ahead. My watch told me were travelling at 5:45/mile. Before the race I had decided that 5:45-5:50/mile was right, and to not go quicker than that on the first 2 laps. Ease into it and see how we go.
The guy by my side asked what my plans were. I told him and he said "great, me too!" and confirmed he hoped to run "marathon pace" today to help confirm if he was in that kind of shape for London next month.
For the next 2 laps (10-11 miles) we ran together and conversed about a whole range of things. It helped me relax and tick off the miles. My new friend was unfamiliar with the course, so I was able to use my local knowledge to let him know about the various quirks in the course that we were about to encounter ("this climb is pretty big, but don't worry, the downhill after makes up for it - save your quads", etc.)
I was taking one gel per lap, so approx 80g of carbs per hour. I saved my SiS Beta Fuel gels for laps 3 and 4 (that shit gives me a real boost).
I was manually splitting my watch at the end of each lap - the first lap we averaged 5:47/mile. The second was 5:49/mile. Perfect.
Lap three was covered at 5:45/mile and I was feeling pretty strong. Aerobically this was really comfortable. Legs weren't too bad, although my quads were aware of the undulating course.
Final lap to go. 15 miles of 20 completed. Time to race!
After finishing my final SiS gel, I used a downhill to pick up the effort a little. My watch says mile 16 was 5:39, mile 17 was 5:38. Nice.
My friend was nowhere to be seen by now, but that made sense because his plan was not
to race. He was in the midst of a 100 mile training week and is focusing on London. So he will be holding 5:50/mile until the finish.
Mile 18 was the biiiig climb. 5:54. That will do.
Two miles to go now! I am feeling good. My calves are fine! Let's push on.
I ran the downhill straight off the big climb as fast as I realistically could. My hamstrings were complaining a little, and my quads were pretty shredded, but I knew I could hold this effort. Mile 19 passes in 5:25 (GAP: 5:34). Lol wat.
Interestingly, I could not see anyone
ahead of me. I had expected at least a couple of the 10 or so guys ahead of me to fade: law of averages and all that. But it was just me and lapped runners.
One mile to go. My friend on the lead bike had come back to find me after the winner had crossed the line (in 1:42 - wtf). He said he'd ride ahead of me all the way to the finish. Godsend!
I focused as much as I could on increasing my turnover and pushing hard to the end. With 200 metres to go I saw my wife and daughter which gave me a real boost.
5:41 for the final mile (GAP: 5:35) and I crossed in 1:55:54 (5:45/mile overall average).
I was delighted. Finally an A+ race in terms of execution and outcome.
The Hertfordshire County 20 mile road championship race was held within this event (for residents + people born there), for which I qualified. I finished 2nd in that competition and picked up a silver medal for it. Very cool.
As for what's next: it's time for a couple of down weeks now, before focusing on shorter stuff in the Spring/Summer. I have a 5000 track race at the end of April to bust some rust.
Longer term, Valencia Marathon in December is booked and in my diary. Too early to choose a goal for that but the signs are positive after this Hillingdon 20 result.

2023.03.28 14:03 Plus_Economics_6929 My local bartender
There’s a bartender that works in a restaurant close to where I live, on weekdays, not on weekends, who “tucks his customers in” similar to the way you would put a baby’s food over the overhang of his bib so that he doesn’t spill crumbs. As far as I’m concerned he’s the only one that does this. Management does not seem to care. He doesn’t do it for men who are lumberjack in quality, only women. But anyway, I spilled a lot of crumbs from my breaded deep fried cutlet onto the floor when I ate there, better luck next time buddy.

2023.03.28 14:01 Sir_David_Davidson 12 Behaviors and Communication Traits of Attractive Men!
Hi, David here!
Today I wanted to share with you 12 behaviors and communication traits of an attractive man!
- Comfortable with silence and does not feel the need to fill every gap in a conversation.
- Comfortable holding strong eye contact while talking to a person.
- Speaks in a low voice with a downward inflection and not an approval seeking upward inflection.
- Well-known and well-received by others.
- Has open body language and is comfortable taking up space.
- Does not brag or actively qualifying himself, such as by dropping the names of the people he knows, the things he owns, or the degrees that he has earned.
- Unapologetically states his opinions. While he does not purposely try to insult others, he also does not prioritize the reaction that other people may have to his words over the desire to state his true thoughts and beliefs.
- Willing to cut people off and redirect a conversation when needed (no need to be done rudely).
- Comfortable making decisions and being decisive.
- Calls people out when they cross one of his personal boundaries.
- Does not constantly ask for permission or approval.
- Treats other high status people as his peers and equals. Does not get star struck or act like a fan.

2023.03.28 13:57 Uhgii 36 [M4F] USA/Anywhere - Looking for an internet bestie! Chats, games, shows/movies, music, etc.
It's always nice having that closeness, but with many people lately it's been so fleeting. I'd love to find someone I vibe with to hang on the regular.
Major up-front caveat: my free time is mostly from noon until 9pm EDT on weekdays, and longelater on weekends depending on plans. About me:
- Native New Yorker that moved around a lot for work, but have now settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
- I work as a TV newscast director, which has a bit of a stranglehold on my schedule and can sometimes lead to me not being around a ton at times.
- Amateur musician, I even have a second degree in it that I waste every day of my life. I play guitar, bass, piano, some ukulele, and a little mandolin and banjo. I write poppy acoustic singesongwriter garbage. I’m like a middle-aged dollar-store brand Taylor Swift that plays almost exclusively in my living room to myself.
- Video game enthusiast, primarily PC/Switch but own a PS4. I *love* cooperative games and spooky games. Some recent favorites are Phasmophobia, Deep Rock Galactic, 7 Days to Die, Destiny 2, and Terraria. Been itching to get into Sun Haven, Dinkum, and Stardew Valley as well. I also even love playing different games but streaming to each other and chatting while we play.
- Love watching shows/movies/streams with people. Willing to watch pretty much anything, and maybe you can be the person to finally get me to successfully watch anime. On a horror kick lately, but up for whatever, including re-watching The Office for the 28th time. Even trashy reality TV is on the table.
- For those that care about it, I’m an INFP and a Cancer, and embody both pretty thoroughly. I’m also a Slytherin! I’m even a twin, so there’s basically two of me.
- 28+. The older the better so we can reminisce less about our dope time in college and more about drowning in debt while crying salty tears into our unpaid utility bills and scraping out the last bits of an off-brand ice cream straight from the carton that we indulged in only because it happened to be on sale that week and we had a coupon.
- Share some similar interests. Pretty much the nerdier you are, the better.
- Understands that I do the best I can with my free time, but sometimes I’ll be too busy with work, or tired to hang out. This one is important since I've lost a number of important people due to my availability sometimes being a bit in flux.
Feel free to reach out! DM, chat, signal fire, carrier pigeon. Whatever you're feeling. We can switch over to discord pretty quick since reddit is a terrible medium for long-term chatting. Please tell me a bit about yourself in your message!
