2023.06.03 13:51 PepeTheMule AC doesn't seem to cool down fast but used to...

I'm a bit lost. Last year when it was 100 out, my AC couldn't keep up and the house was 80+.
I called a AC repair guy and he basically recharged it and left. The AC felt worse. I know now that the AC can only do about 20 degrees less than the outside.
Then I called another place and the guy found it was over charged and looked at the specs and removed and balanced it again. Then he checked and found it was running within spec.
But my AC still can't keep up. It runs all day and can't cool the house down. If I set it to 75, it's stuck at 77 cooling.
I'm not sure if my returns are messed up but it's about 65 degrees pushing to my vent in the first floor. Near the AC it's 59 at the basement vent. And it was within 20 degrees on the return. This is an old 100 year old house brick so it's not insulated well but indi know I could set it to 72 and it would get there 2 years ago. AC unit is from 2010. I'd have to check the model again.

2023.06.03 13:51 Mission_Future3723 Cant help but feel bad when i want to buy things for myself

I have this deep rooted issue with not being able to buy things for myself. I have a shopping list full of things i want to get, clothes, jewerly, gadgets etc but i Can never get myself to actually buy it and instead i just save up the money. I have a pretty good saving but i’m not saving up for anything specific, so they’re just waiting to be spendt basically.
I dont know if its a bad thing or a good thing. Maybe they’re both.
I’m not sure why i feel bad. I do occasionally buy a thing or two and then i Can go several months not buying anything for myself. I always put my kids before me and they have everything i’m not afraid to spendt money if its for my kids, but i just feel bad if its for me for some reason.
I keep saying to myself i deserve it, just do it and be done with it. But the feeling is just lingering.

2023.06.03 13:50 Lost-Newspaper2582 Things that have worked for me

Hello, I move been steroid free for about 2 1/2 years now, I’m doing okay, I have daily episodes of itching from hives but they are not nearly as bad, my skin has some hyperpigmentation as a result and I have some elephant skin wrinkles but nothing too severe, I might rebound but fingers crossed things get better. Thought I would share some things that have helped me find relief and many others that did not. keep in mind that nothing ever “cured” my tsw but time and also I have not had weeping skin or bacterial infections.
Vaseline- this really helped my tsw when it was at its worst. Helped with the elasticity of my skin and heal the cracks. It def shows the most dramatic healing effect but it does nothing to help the itch. In fact I believe I somehow developed an allergy to it, as it would irritate my skin like crazy, I kept using it tho because it saved my skin at first.
Zinc ointment- this one helped a lot, as it would “dry” my skin out, so it would help a lot with moist areas like the creases of my elbows, or just anywhere because I would get lots of hot flashes, in addition to the zinc it had a vaseline base so it had the healing properties of that. The ointment I used, I believe had zero water content which I think was important to the success of it, because it was not a moisturizer.
Cerave anti itch cream- unsure how good this was, it helped my face when it was itchy but my face did not really get tsw, I think it somewhat works, it was definitely miles better than all the oat moisturizers they recommend for eczema but it was ultimately just too expensive lol
Compression- I never bought anything specifically for this but i used old cotton shirts that I would tie around my neck, and socks that I would cut and fit on my arm. Sometimes it would soothe the itch but it wasn’t bulletproof. I highly recommend getting something professional specifically for compression because I think it was really good at numbing the itch
Distractions- when having an itch episode, I tried my best to distract myself I tried flicking the palm of my hands where I had no tsw, and fidgeting with things but the BEST ,and I mean this seriously, was the Mario kart app on my phone. It’s immersive and you have to always be engaged and doing something with your fingers. The only con is that after you finish, there’s a lot of loading screens that take you out of the experience and it’s back to itching. I would counteract that by clicking restart before I would finish a race.
Cold- cold packs did work really well, but I found it annoying because my tsw was all over. Nowadays I just take a cold shower. I run extremely cold water and put only a part of my body in it like my arms or my feet. It helps a lot with cooling the internal body temp I think
Deep breathing- once again cools the body, slows down heart beat, and relaxes you. Itching can be anxiety inducing which no doubt increasing more itching.
Consistent eating- I’m putting this because I really struggle with it, I’m so used to skipping meals. Feeding your stomach at a consistent level is so important especially for hydration. I never felt anything different by going on different diets or trying supplements.
No moisture- I didn’t try this for very long, but I kind of understand why it works. I think the physical act of rubbing things in itself can be irritating. From what I understand moisture softens the skins which makes it more prone to damage and susceptible to irritation, which is why eczema often focuses on thicker ointments because they contain larger amount of occlusives which actually act as a barrier. I’ll admit I don’t know much about this so feel free to tell me I’m wrong
Nail filing/ alternative scratchers- I file my nail daily, I find it fun and it’s an easy thing to do as a multitasker, it help to have short nails because they do immediate damage. Instead of using my hands though I experimented with other ways to scratch my itch, my favourite is with this ordinary lash serum, it’s basically a plastic tube. Cylinder so it has no sharp point of contact. I also have used a lip balm. Because they are so “gentle” I have to press hard, I think the downward pressure is better for the skin than the horizontal scrape of sharp nails. However it does mean if I want a good itch I have to use more muscle power which can further heat flashes .
Less Showering- this might sound gross but I showered very little when I was at my peak severity because it was so painful, I would focus only on genitals, asshole, face (didn’t have much tsw here), hands, feet, i don’t rlly have an armpit smell because of Asian genetics. When I did shower, I used cetaphil gentle cleanser in a one litre bottle. I don’t think it gets any gentler than that. And I also used hypochlorous acid for disinfecting hands instead of alcohol. Nowadays I shower normally

2023.06.03 13:50 DarlingChaosPixie Y’all don’t wanna hear me, you just wanna dance

I try to share my wisdom about what I’ve learned, some hear me, some insist their toxic twin flame connection is different. I was like you for almost 8 years. So I’m not judging because I know what it’s like to be so stubborn you just have to learn the hard way. I am the same. I just don’t want to see more people needlessly suffer. But if you don’t let go of your toxic false flame you can never find your real one. I nearly died because of the toxic connection I couldn’t let go of. I am permanently disfigured from the things I did to myself while I was tethered to someone I convinced myself truly loved me. That he was just misunderstood. That others just didn’t understand him like I did. And then one day I let go and I found the man he was mimicking all along. Good luck though

2023.06.03 13:50 Simple-abi So i Met a guy in Sevilla

So at this Moment im in Sevilla with the EU founded Erasmus+ and 2 days ago i met an American guy at a plaza.
Because of my language school (ends at 20:30) it was late but I don’t wanted to go home already. So I bought myself a bread and went to a plaza in the near to just enjoy the evening. A guy was next to me on the bank and also enjoyed the plaza. I listened to music with my headphones and just was just eating my bread and was happy. So happy that I wanted to share the bread so I thought about offer him some. So I did it but he said no but started to talk to me. We talked about stock market and live and so one, with the sun goes down and everything. It was great. So we sat there and were talking like two hours long. The we raked a picture gave each other the hand and said goodbye and went in different directions.
I was a bit happy that I offered him the bread but also was sad because I knew I would never see him again in my entire live.

2023.06.03 13:49 AmIn1amh So how does melatonin work exactly?

My main issue with sleep is that my inner clock(or sunlight whatever) wakes me up around the same time no matter when I go to sleep. Actually it absolutely is the inner clock cause same shit happens in my old room at my parents’ place.
Last night I took melatonin for the first time in a while. I used to pop up to 5 per night.
I got the same amount of sleep, 5-ish hours, from 3-8. I have pretty much chronic sleep deprivation and suffer from near constant headaches. BUT today I actually felt rested and my headache is a lot milder.
Is melatonin really that powerful? The one I use has some supporting herbs and extracts.

2023.06.03 13:49 vegicom How do Vegetarians Get Protein

How do Vegetarians Get Protein

Contrary to what some people might think, going meat-free doesn’t mean sacrificing your protein intake.
Plenty of delicious and nutritious plant-based sources can give vegetarians the protein boost they need to stay strong and healthy.
So, whether you’re a seasoned vegetarian or just considering dipping your toes into the veggie pool, let’s explore the wonderful world of vegetarian protein options together.
Get ready to discover some tasty and protein-packed alternatives that will have you saying, “Who needs meat?” in no time!
The good news is that plenty of excellent plant-based protein sources exist for those who choose not to eat meat.
First, we have legumes like beans, lentils, chickpeas, and peas. These little guys are like superheroes when it comes to vegetarian protein.
They’re packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. You can make all sorts of yummy dishes with them, like a hearty bean chili or a creamy hummus dip.
Next up, we’ve got tofu and tempeh. Tofu and tempeh are made from soybeans and are super high in protein. Marinate and grill tofu for flavorful skewers, or try crispy tempeh bacon.
Ever heard of quinoa? It’s a grain-like seed that’s one of the proven ways vegetarians get protein.
It has all the essential amino acids your body needs and adds a nice texture to dishes like salads, stir-fries, and veggie burgers.
Quinoa is a winner when it comes to both taste and nutrition.
So, you might have heard people say that vegetarians must combine different plant-based foods to get all the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) they need.
Well, that’s where complete protein combinations come into play!
For vegetarians who rely on plant-based sources, it’s important to know which foods to mix and match to ensure they get a complete protein profile.
Luckily, there are plenty of plant-based foods that are packed with protein. Legumes like beans, lentils, and chickpeas are fantastic sources.
They may not have all the essential amino acids, but they’re low in some and high in others.
So, by combining them with other foods, you can create a complete protein powerhouse.
Hummus, made from chickpeas, is a vegetarian’s best friend. It’s creamy, flavorful, and packed with protein.
Pair it with whole wheat pita bread, and you have a complete protein snack perfect for dipping.
Quinoa is an amazing grain high in protein and contains all the essential amino acids.
Toss it with various colorful veggies like spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, and some olive oil dressing, and you’ve got a protein-packed salad that’s both nutritious and delicious.
One of the main reasons soy-based products are where vegetarians get protein is because they are packed with complete proteins.
That means they contain all the essential amino acids your body needs to build and repair tissues. It’s like a protein party in every bite!
Soy milk is a fantastic alternative to cow’s milk, enriched with protein and other nutrients.
You can use it in your morning cereal, blend it in smoothies, or even pour it into your coffee. It’s creamy, delicious and gives you that protein power kick to start your day right.
We also have soy-based meat substitutes like soy burgers, soy sausages, and soy-based deli slices. These tasty treats mimic the texture and flavor of the meat while giving you a protein punch.
They’re perfect for grilling at your next barbecue or adding to your favorite sandwiches. Say goodbye to FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) on that burger fix!
Nuts and seeds are like tiny nutritional powerhouses that pack a punch for protein. Not only are they tasty and versatile, but they also offer a wide range of health benefits.
Let’s start with nuts. Whether you’re into almonds, walnuts, cashews, or peanuts, these crunchy delights are excellent protein sources.
Almonds, for example, are rock stars in the protein department. Just a handful of almonds can give you a decent protein boost to keep you energized.
Plus, they’re loaded with heart-healthy fats, fiber, and essential vitamins.
Now, let’s move on to seeds. Chia, flaxseeds, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds are just a few examples of the amazing protein-packed goodies in this category.
Chia seeds, in particular, are pretty incredible. These tiny black or white seeds are packed with protein and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
You can sprinkle them on your morning cereal or yogurt or mix them into your smoothies for an added protein boost.
So, as you see, my fellow, nuts, and seeds are some of the most reliable sources for vegetarians to get protein!
Now, let’s dive into protein supplements and how vegetarians can get their protein fix.
Protein supplements usually come in powders to mix into smoothies and shakes or sprinkle over your morning oats.
They’re incredibly convenient, and they can give your protein intake a little boost.
One of the great plant-based protein options is pea protein. Yes, we’re talking about those little green guys! Pea protein is another complete protein source, and it’s gentle on your tummy too.
It mixes well with liquids and can be a fantastic addition to your post-workout smoothie or a mid-day protein pick-me-up.
Another one is the marvelous hemp protein. No, it won’t make you high—sorry to disappoint!
Hemp protein is made from the hemp plant’s seeds and isis a wonderful plant-based protein source. It has a mild, nutty flavor and packs in all those essential amino acids.
So, how do you incorporate these protein supplements into your vegetarian lifestyle?
Well, it’s pretty straightforward. Add a scoop of your chosen protein powder to your favorite smoothie recipe.
Tofu is a classic vegetarian protein option. Slice it up and stir it with colorful vegetables like broccoli, bell peppers, and snow peas.
Add garlic, ginger, and soy sauce for a tasty Asian-inspired flavor. EnjoyEnjoy it alone, or serve it over a quinoa or brown rice bed.

2023.06.03 13:48 tycho0 Do my foster kittens hate me??

Hey everyone I could really use some help!
So I recently started fostering some kittens (two 6 weeks olds 🤩) and from the moment I got them, one of them in particular totally imprinted on me. She was completely lovey, always wanting to be held, following me everywhere, snuggling me, sleeping on me at night, etc., overall just very strongly attached.
Recently, I had to start treating her for a URI that she got at the humane society and her energy has returned to normal. However, I’ve noticed in the last few days she no longer likes to be held, and while her “safe spot” used to be on my shoulders—she used to even balance on my shoulders when I’d walk around, now she tries to jump off almost as soon she gets up there. I’ve also noticed she’s no longer naps on/ near me and even started napping under the bed and more out of sight in the last few days. As her energy returns to normal, she is always playing with the other kitten and I’m sure that has something to do with it.
I would typically attribute this to URI and feeling better, but even before the symptoms of the URI she was super playful and attached to me.
of course realize this may sound ridiculous, but I was about 99% sure I was going to adopt her and as her foster stay is nearing its end, I don’t want to make a bad decision in either direction.
These are my first foster kittens so truly doing my best to make sure they’re happy and enriched but am I just being ridiculous?
Any input is appreciated 😩

2023.06.03 13:47 Thirteencookies Places for going out I'll actually enjoy?

Hello, so I went to Kater Blau last night and was highly disappointed. The dance floor was small and few people were actually dancing on it, just swaying. I had more fun in an over crowded tiny karaoke bar in Munich and a punk bar in Bratislava. Also I found the blatant public sex caused me to have ptsd flashbacks. I don't care that people are hooking up, I just find seeing/being nearly out in the open causes me issues, if it's more hidden away then I'm fine.

2023.06.03 13:47 mcmuggin_yo Painful sex

For the last like 2-3 months sex has been painful, it’s not every time but it’s pretty frequent now and it’s concerning I noticed it started happening shortly after my HSG. It’s hard to describe the pain but it’s like a sharp pain from my cervix to my pelvic area each stroke feels like someone’s taking a knife and poking me with it, hurts so bad that I have to stop and take a breather in between or I have to constantly reposition myself so it doesn’t hurt as bad. This may be TMI, but my boyfriend is on the larger side…but it has never been a problem. It’s concerning and ofc google doesn’t help at all. I have an appointment with my OB next week but I’m just so impatient I’d like some input from others who have experienced the same thing, was there a diagnosis you got? Im aware y’all aren’t doctors but any ideas on what it could possibly be? Ofc the only way to know for sure is when I go see my OB but until then I’d like some input from others in the same shoes, or were in the same shoes

2023.06.03 13:47 travigal01 Why was my old home so scary

So i used to live in this house. It was newish it wasnt run down but it obviously wasnt the newest modern home either it was normal. But for some reason i hated being alone in it and had this feeling like something was extremely off about it or something was there that shouldnt be there with me. I lived there with my mom, her bf and my brother and i was 11 at the time. Onr time i could swear that someone had broken in. It didnt sound like it its just that i saw flashes outside of my room and im only 47% sure it was the reflection of the sun. This was in finland vantaa. Im ok telling the location that specific cuz i dont live anywhere near there. It could be the fact i wasnt the most sane 11 yr old. (Think imagining being an arsonist and killing my bullies and planning it) so it couldve been that but ik what i saw was real and it scared me shitless. It could be that im dumb and im not fully sure if it is a cryptid but im asking just in case theres anything that actually does that. I dont remember what it caused me to start getting paranoid. I dont remember a whole lot i think i heard like a step or creak noise that couldve been the washing machine but i honestly dont remember i was just scared to be alone.

2023.06.03 13:47 mint-racc Does it ever really get better?

Sorry if the flair isn't correct. I wasn't really sure how to label this. It's more of a vent than anything but if someone has something that may help, we're all ears.
To cut to the chase, I miss my abuser.
It feels wrong to call him that though.
We spent around 3, almost 4 years of our lives together. He was the first person to ever know I'm part of a system. We escaped horrific abuse together. I moved across the country to be with him.
He was never intentionally abusive, I truly believe that. Anything he did to us was a result of him healing from his own trauma and reenacting those experiences on us.
We did the same thing to him. Prosecutor, protector, persecutor, protescuator, whatever term may fit the part, but they hated him. They hate everyone. It took some time for us to realize that it was everyone not just him.
However, we were incredibly abusive to him too. We said some really horrible things many times. I said some really horrible things. I'm literally disabled and made ableist remarks directed at him.
The breaking point was when he said something extremely triggering to us, and an ex-persecutor fronted, slapping him in the arm. This escalated to him pushing us around and eventually getting us in a chokehold.
I still feel like I instigated everything. I was sort of drunk at the time and wasn't thinking clearly. If anything, we were drinking way too much at the time and have since gotten a lot better about it. Had we been sober, I wonder if things would have gone differently. I never would have laid my hands on him like that.
Ever since the incident, he's only gotten so much better and profoundly fast. He was practically nobody when we broke up, but now, he's basically a locally famous DJ, makes art all day everyday, and is constantly making new friends. He started therapy and hasn't had nearly the same demeanor as he did in our relationship.
If only I had held on for a little bit longer. If only I hadn't been such a dumb drunk. Maybe now I would have gotten the chance to see him at his best. Instead, I've only gotten worse with no hope of getting better.
I used to make music. I used to draw. I used to play instruments. I used to go for bike rides that lasted several hours. Now? I can't even go to the grocery store.
How is it possible for someone who seemed to have had it so much worse than me to be doing so much better now that I'm out of the picture? It truly reinforces the reasoning that I have no friends. I just hold people back from success. It has been 4 years since I lost my very last friend. My last real life connection to the world. Now I have no one. I just escape into my brain and talk to my headmates. We're all losing our minds in here.
All I want is to apologize to him. I hurt him so badly, and now karma has come to reap my soul. I want to live. I want to enjoy life. I want friends. Why is it so easy for him but so impossible for me?
I miss him so much. Life is so boring without him. He was the ONLY person I could relate to on anything. He was the ONLY person who we both just understood. Now I have no one. I have nothing.
It's been 6 months, half a year, what am I supposed to do?

A little about me :
Anyway if you're interested in chatting feel free to contact me, maybe mention your age location, and add a picture so we can get the conversation going? :) I'm looking for a relationship based on trust and respect, pretty classic you might say. I'm also looking for someone that agrees to relocate, as being a single dad makes it hard to move around the globe. It's not for tomorrow of course but it's important enough to mention it. I'd be more than happy to help with the move as it's scary and expensive, money being not a problem for me!
So yeah, see you soon I hope :)

2023.06.03 13:46 Professional_Prune11 Human Trauma Section Twelve: Back to Work

Hey Hey Hey buds. We are back at it again with the Alien ER. how was your week? I hope it was good. This week we have our first glimpses of what Martinez's combat experiences were like, i do mean a literal glimpse. I have a couple of chapters to really drive home the day's events in detail later on. We also have shiksie breaking out of her shell a bit today, and get some more insight into how she treats people.
anyways let's get this bread.
Regrettably for Martinez, walking Lysa back to her home would be the last part of his night he would describe as enjoyable in any way. By the time he made it back home, it was well past two in the morning; the few hours of sleep he did manage to get were restless and filled with memories he would rather forget. The events of the night had whipped him back years in his life.
Usually, Martinez would not get night terrors anymore, but they still on occasion reared their ghoulish head. Thankfully Martinez was not able to vividly recall the nightmares from today, but he knows he had them because he woke up in a cold sweat. Whenever they are vivid he feels like garbage for days afterward; He becomes little more than a writhing mass of anxiety and regret wishing if anything he could go back and change what happened. The faces of his brothers contorting and twisting in agony were seared into his mind and soul, the vivid dreams were him going through those events over and over again, as if the grim reaper was showing him a horror movie of his past.
He had been to therapy for years trying to eventually move past the memories of what happened on Verilon. The therapy did help for a while, but eventually, he stagnated and stopped going; he could not accept that he was the only one left, He could not move forward; so he just did his best to keep going on living with the memories, his brother's deaths held tightly on his soul, like a ball and chain.
He still hated that the lowest moment of his life was what the Navy decided was what he should be rewarded for. That bright gold cross on his dress blues was nothing he was proud of, it was just a bitter reminder of his failures; He thought it might as well be a cruel joke life had for him.
The last time he had thought about Verilon was a few months before he arrived here on Draun; He had heard through the grapevine that his old unit was getting ready to start building up to redeploy there. He was glad he was reassigned so he did not have to return to that hell-blasted desert world. He had his turn in the sandbox, it was someone else's chase to spend a year there.
After having woken up three separate times throughout the night, Martinez had given up on getting any sleep at all. He only had two hours left until he had to go to work anyways, the few hours of sleep would not make a difference to his well-being anyways.
He took to answering some of the questions Shiksie had given him, but focusing on the intricate details of alien anatomy while completely lacking sleep was not easy by any means, the words on the datapad were twisting and blurring into one another. Before he knew where the time went, the shrill beeping of his alarm clock had already started to fill the apartment.
As he idly went and got ready for the day, he was glad he did not try to get Lysa to stay the night. He would have hated her to see him like this, he would rather no one see him like this at all. The fact he felt this made him feel broken, and to him, a woman he had only been on one date with would certainly think the same. Sometimes life has a funny way of working out, he supposed.
Halfway stumbling into work with a yawn Martinez could not wait for the day to be over, he was planning on just going through the motions and doing his best to keep Shiksie off his back. He set himself up in his usual corner and started to read from the datapad; In all of Martinez’s experience if you looked busy, or at least looked like you were doing what those over you wanted, they would likely leave you alone.
Surprisingly the one who threw a wrench into that plan was Therin. The small avian alien had spotted Martinez as soon as he entered and scooted his chair nearby. Therin tapped Martinez on the thigh.
“So how was your night?” Therin chirped. Hoping his little ploy from the previous night worked out well. They were busy at the shop last night and he was about to leave when the police called, but the cop mentioned Martinez and his Aviex girlfriend were on a date; He just could not help himself to mess with the new guy and maybe push him towards spending some more time with someone other than Shiksie, or Ivorn.
You would know how it went you little shit, Marinez thought as he tucked the datapad back into his scrubs pocket and then turned towards his co-worker
Therin looked at Martinez, his feathers slightly puffed up. He stood on the chair and got slightly closer to Martinez Intently looking Martinez over. Therin took particular interest in the small circle of healing puncture wounds on his Human compatriot's shoulder. “What did your lady friend do to you?” He asked jokingly.
“Therin you already know what happened, I got into a fight” Martinez grumbled. Not wanting to have the prodding bird ask further into the rest of the evening. He already knew that Aveix, where hated and did not doubt Therin knowing about him and Lysa’s more intimate time, would be trouble.
“Oh come on new guy, I'm asking about after I was on the phone with the cops” Therin replied, “Did you have a nice evening?”
Martinez stepped slightly away from Therin. “Look man, I had a long night. Nothing happened after the fight” Martinez groaned
Therin shook his head and tapped his wing claw on Martinez’s shoulder. “Those little marks I can see tell me otherwise” he chirped
Dammit, I was hoping those were not visible, Martinez thought. Martinez had always worn slightly larger scrubs than he needed to out of comfort, he did not make much effort to hide the bite mark on his trap, but it's not like it's anyone else's business who he goes on a date with anyways.
“I mean it, nothing else happened,” Martinez growled. Hoping Therin would get the hint and drop the subject.
“Oh yeah, whatever you say new guy” Therin chuckled “So when is the wedding?”
“Fuck off Therin,” Martinez said jokingly, pushing Therins chair away from him with his boot “Don’t you have something better to be doing?”
Therin chuckled a little, before scooting his chair back towards the center desks of the room “Wow you really are Shiksies trainee, you are already acting just like her'' He said before tapping his wing claw on his datapad. Therin wondered what else he might be able to do to mess with Martinez about the events of last night, when he opened the list of current patients he saw his answer.
The bird has more jokes than I thought he would Martinez thought, while pulling back out his data pad. At least Therin was a good sport about who he went out with, unlike those two Urintal did. The fact Therin was giving him a little bit of shit wasn’t surprising, It was in a way customary for the old salts to poke fun at the new guy's love life. At this point, Therin was the only one who knew he had gone on a date at all, and he hoped it stayed that way at least with Skiksie; If Ivorn figured it out, Martinez doubted he would care much; Martinez had already met Ivorns chipper girlfriend at his point.
I should get back to studying before Shiksie shows up, Martinez thought as he buttoned his top up a bit higher than he preferred. Martinez did not want the others to see the hickey or dig any more into his private life than he was comfortable with.

Shiksie arrived at work excited, she was eager to see what Martinez had managed to study during his time away from work; She had given him what she saw as a small number of questions and things he should have been studying over the weekend. She had always done her best learning when she had a nice calm place to read, at least the new Human hopefully had that allotted to him at his own home.
If he did a good job answering what she had given him, she would hopefully be able to increase the rate of his training; She had no idea how long he was going to be here but she wanted to get Martinez certified as a basic Interspecies technician as soon as possible; Getting Martinez that certification would be a great boon for the shop, she and the others could then allow him to assess class green patients without their oversight.
When she entered, something was off in the shop. She could hear Therin and Ivorn chatting happily about their weekends, but the place smelled horrible. A rancid combination of stem cells, iron, pine, the same strange scent Martinez gave off when she knew he was agitated. She initially assumed Martinez just had forgotten to wear his scent suppressors, but when she rounded the corner and saw the massive gash and pink hemostatic gel on the human's face she knew something was definitely off.
Getting closer to Martinez, Shiksie was still nervous about being around him; She felt slight twinges of fear of him striking at her, or her overstepping and boundaries she had yet to learn. While they had managed to build a shaky but cordial relationship at best, she would rather not jeopardize what they do have.
The Human smelled like he had when they had their meeting, along with his heart pounding extremely quickly.
Is he nervous about something? Shiksie thought as she made it next to him, once again without him noticing. She wondered if she should stop sneaking around him, but she would rather not bother the Human whenever she could. Assuming her mere presence was more often than not a bother to the man.
She peered over his shoulder to catch a glance at what he was currently studying. It surprised her, he had quite a few tabs open on the datapad, but the current one was her list of questions. Most of them had not been answered, but he was flicking back and forth between the list and the other tabs searching for answers.
Shicksie could not help but feel her tail sway a bit faster, the fact that he was doing what she asked was certainly progress in repairing their abysmal start to working together. She walked past him, and headed towards her desk; With the human still not having noticed her entrance.
Shiksie decided to not dig into whatever had Martinez on edge, even if she was worried that it has him so unsettled. She assumed if Martinez wanted to talk to her about it, he would do so; most species did that after all, and humans were supposed to be rather social; even if Martinez seemed a bit more… reserved, he was still Human at the end of the day.
Later in the Morning Dr. Harnsis arrived and the crew had their pass down from the night shift regarding any patients that were already in rooms. They only had a Urintal in one of the rooms. He had a broken jaw and dozens of other fractures across the rest of his body. From the briefing, Shiksie knew the Urintal was caught up in some fight the previous night, but with no injuries that were directly life-threatening, He would be perfect practice for Martinez. The Urintal had surgery on his jaw and was still asleep from the heavy painkillers that night shift had pumped into the Lizard-like Alien.
“I will take over the treatment of the Urintal,” Shiksie said, jumping on the chance to treat the patient that was already here. The Urintal were a green species that had been in the Galactic Union for thousands of years. It would be a perfect chance to have Martinez assess a patient and go through the discharge process.
“Very well Shiksie, you, Therin, and Martinez handle that first. The patient should be ready to leave within the hour” Harnsis Chittered as he pointed at the two of them with his larger forelimbs.
Shiksies' ears twitched when Martinez groaned and muttered under his breath. It was rare she mishears someone, but she did not understand why Martinez was muttering he would rather not. She glanced over and saw that therein was patting Martinez on the shoulder reassuring him of something.
What the hell happened? Shiksie thought as she walked toward the two of them.
“Martinez, pull up the patient's charts and their species data; You will be giving myself and Therin a briefing on the species before we go into the room. Do you understand?” Shiksie asked.
Martinez pulled out his datapad, and lazily saluted “I will get it ready” he groaned, before tapping on the screen.
Shifting her attention towards Therin. The bird looked up at her and tilted his head slightly. “What's up Shiksie? Do you need something from me?” Therein chirped.
Shiksie was not sure about what happened but she had to know what she was about to step into. “Yes I do, follow me,” She said flatly before turning around and walking away. Therein following quickly behind.
Once the two of them were well out and away from the center of the shop, far enough that Shiksie was certain Martinez would not hear them. She turned around and knelt in front of Therin. The bird looked at ease like he normally did. Shiksie had never seen anything disturb Therin over the last few years; Therein always just shrugged most issues off, or would on occasion try to pull pranks at others' expense, much to her chagrin. She wanted to make sure the situation was the former and not the latter.
“Therin, does Martinez’s injury have anything to do with that Urintal?” She asked as she leaned her hands on her knees.
Therin fluttered his wings and puffed out his plumage; faking offense to the question. He did not want Shiksie to ruin his chance to see the drug-hazed Urintal being treated by the person who put them in the hospital. He was hoping that Urintal would freak out and try to run away.
“I have no idea, Martinez did not tell me anything at all about what happened,” Therin lied.
Shiksie gave Therin an ice-cold glare that was as sharp as any scalpel. She did not believe the bird at all, he was far too obvious when faking anything. “Therin, I know you are lying. I can hear your heart rate increasing, and I know you aren't afraid of me like Martinez is” Shiksie sighed.
Therin only increased his bolstering refusing to let Shiksie stop his only good joke on the new guy stop before it even started “I mean It, I don't know anything that happened, Why do you assume I know more?”
“Because your pranks are seldom if ever funny, it's clear enough you know more” Shiksie said, tapping her finger on her knee. She looked up behind Therin towards Martinez who was still diligently reading from his datapad, she did not want Martinez to be freaked out and leave. She had caused that with a new trainee once, and Therin once as well. “If anything bad happens to Martinez out of this, I'm holding you accountable, Got it?” She hissed.
Therin backed up and swallowed his spit. He would rather not piss Shiksie off but with the video of Martinez throttling the Urintal he had seen before work. He had no doubt nothing bad would happen to the Human.
“Don't worry Shiksie nothing bad will happen” Therin said.
Shiksie stood towering over Therin, She shook her head. Therin was too stubborn and she knew it, If he wanted a prank to happen it would. No matter how twisted she might think it is. She also wasn’t so stupid as to not pick up on the implied admittance she managed to get out of Therin. “Come on, you are going to be doing this assessment with him after all,” Shiksie said, gesturing towards Martinez.
Shiksie and Therin returned to Martinez as he was finishing his initial reading of the needed information. He initially hoped it was just a coincidence that another Urintal would be here, but once he saw the scans of the patient's bones, he had no doubt his next patient was going to be the man he and Lysa kicked the crap out of the previous night.
He could recall each hit he had seen on the Urintal and was able to point out what ones were his and what ones had to be Lysa’s. The amount of damage was surprising, and the number of fractures was unreal; nearly every rib, and limb had at least one fracture if not more.
Hopefully, this asshole is way too dusted to recognize me, Martinez thought as he looked up at Shiksie and prepared to give the summary of the patient and the Urintal species as a whole.
Shiksie paid close attention to every word Martinez said, Holding tightly onto them. The majority of his summary on the Urintal was accurate; A few mistakes here and there, but he did not have the summary of all the green species memorized as she had. She offered a few corrections but the errors would not affect anything.
Then the summary of the patient's wounds and needed treatment came up, Martinez gripped the datapad tightly and had to periodically pause to take a deep breath. His heart rate would suddenly accelerate. She leaned in closer and got a good view of the Humans dark bark-colored eyes, whenever he paused she saw the vibrant brown was far smaller than normal; He had that same look in his eye from when he took a fighting stance in the storage room with her.
She looked over at Therin, the bird either did not notice how uncomfortable Martinez was or simply did not care. What the hell are you trying, She thought as she started to boil. She was not about to let whatever was going on happen, at first it might have been him trying a prank, but Therins short-sightedness might get the Human or the Urintal hurt.
“Stop,” Shiksie said as she carefully reached her hand out and rested it on Martinez’s shoulder. Martinez recoiled when she touched him, being pulled back from whatever trance he was in. She gently patted his shoulder “Martinez come with me” She said flatly.
Martinez looked up at her sweat rolling off his brow. “Uhh, are you sure? We haven't even seen the patient yet?” he meekly said in protest.
Shiksie had worked with soldiers and police officers enough to know Martinez had some kind of Trauma, and these events were obviously triggering something. The patient can be handled by Therin, while she figures this out. His training be damned, his health came first; even if he likely did not want her to intervene.
“Yes I am sure,” Shiksie purred. She pulled the datapad out of his hands “I need you to come with me now”
She passed the data pad to Therin and glared at the small bird, Therin looked like he was trying to hold back laughter about the state Martinez was in.
I will pluck out your feather you little bird, Shiksie thought. She always thought Therin was a reliable nurse, and a decent friend to have small talk with; but not much else.
“Therin, go ensure the patient gets out of here,” Shiksie said.
Therin looked like he was about to protest the interruption to his idea of a joke, but even Therin did not want to mess with Harnsis’ right hand. Her icy glare had him skittering off toward the patient's room.
“Come with me Martinez, '' Shiksie said softly, doing her best to seem unopposing to him.
Martinez grumbled slightly, he did not want to have to spend more time alone with Shiksie. At least today she seemed to be slightly less forceful with him. The two of them walked out of the office, Martinez saw Shikise pull out her datapad and send a message off to someone, he assumed it to likely be Harnsis. He hoped whatever Shiksie had sent wasn’t going to reflect badly on him. He had knuckled down through his PTSD and episodes to treat patients before, he has never really had the choice not to do so, at this point it has just become a habit.
Once the two of them were out of the building Shiksie led Martinez towards one of the small gardens that was nearby to the building. It was just a simple fountain that had some benches nearby. A ring of well-kept flower beds surrounds it, this time of year they were in full bloom; dozens of vibrant colors swaying like waves as the wind gently pushed on them. Shiksie had always liked it out here, it was not uncommon for her to eat lunch or take a break out here after a particularly nasty patient or situation.
“Would you like to take a seat?” Shiksie asked Martinez while gesturing towards the nearest bench.
Martinez did not say a word, but at least for the moment his heart rate had gone down slightly and he seemed more calm. She was overjoyed that she seemed to be right on the money and that it had something to do with that Urintal that was setting him off.
“Would it be alright If I have a seat as well?” Shiksie asked, still treading carefully around Martinez and his need for boundaries.
The look Martinez gave her was a surprise, it was a strange mixture of shock and confusion. Like he was amazed, Shiksie was asking for permission to do anything.
“Yeah go ahead,” Martinez said, scooting to the far side of the bench as Shiksie sat down nearby.
“So would you want to tell me what happened with the Urintal?” Shiksie asked.
Martinez groaned, he should have figured the moment the icy cat had stopped him she knew something was wrong. He was in no way going to tell her every vivid detail of his previous night, nor did he want her of all people to know the details of what happened in his past. The fact those two events were stacked on each other was just a lot for the sailor to tackle at once.
“I would really rather not, but I assume based on my injuries you probably already know something,” Martinez said
Shiksie sighed, leaned forward, and rested her elbows on her knees. She looked away and at the fountains flowing water, already well aware that just looking at Martinez had upset him before. She wanted him to feel safe and able to talk if he wanted.
“I have my assumptions, but nothing concrete,” Shiksie replied. “I would like it if you trusted me enough to talk about anything bothering you”
Martinez wondered if she truly meant that, She had done a lot to try and help him be welcome; That does not mean she should be fully trusted though.
“Shiksie I just want to get back to work,” Martinez said with a deep sullen tone. Shiksie could still easily smell the sheer amount of adrenaline oozing out of him.
“Listen I'm not going to force you to tell me about it, I just know you want to. You would not have followed me if not” Shiksie replied, “let's just sit here for a while, you can just tell me anything you feel comfortable with, alright?”
Martinez shifted awkwardly and looked towards Shiksie. The fact she looked almost as bad as he did was something he was not used to seeing from her. She was looking off at the far side of the fountain, her tail and ears were more still than he had ever seen them.
Maybe she is not as cold as I made her out to be, Martinez thought.
The two of them sat there in silence for a while, neither certain how long it was but eventually Martinez resumed talking. Shiksies' ears twitched to listen in on what had happened. Martinez walked her through the events of the previous night, but he left out what his dreams had been about. He just told her that the whiplash of going from a nice relaxing date to being in a fight for his life had brought up bad memories from when he was in the Navy.
Shiksie was surprised by the story she heard. She did not expect Martinez to have started to date so quickly, She felt that thorn in her side remembering how badly she messed up with meeting him; Not that she wanted to date Martinez, but the fact he was so easy to get along with just showed her how badly she failed. The most shocking part was how he hospitalized two Urintal, one completely on his own. She just had a few more things about the previous night she wanted to ask.
“Why did you jump into the fight so willingly?” Shiksie asked.
Martinez sighed slightly unsure of the answer himself. He immediately thought it might have been “because it was the right thing to do” but even he knew that wasn’t the whole answer. He felt guilty about not being able to help in the past, and he would be damned if he could stop something bad before it happened.
“I'm not sure” Martinez lied, he just did not want to tell Shiksie about his previous fights with the Human Navy.
“That's alright, we don't always do,” Shiksie said. She thought back to her own parents, how she was still to this day unsure why they sacrificed themselves, or even why the accident caused that sacrifice to happen.
Shiksie looked back at Martinez for the first time since they sat down. Her usually sharp predatory features seemed far softer than before. She did not even hear Martinez’s heart run away when they made eye contact.
Martinez smiled softly back at her, his usually fiery glower a much duller blaze. It wasn't the usual inferno she saw in him, more akin to a tired dwindling flame.
Before she had a chance to say anything else she felt her datapad ringing indicating a call. Looking at the screen, her own heart sank. Why is the director calling me?

So what did you think? lemme here it I love to talk to you all. updoot if you liked.
side note: I am planning out my next project to be a offshoot set on Verilon, in the current day of the story.

2023.06.03 13:46 Kiwimaseyi 29[M4F] Anywhere - Just a French single dad looking for something wholesome, with selfie inside! :)

Is it me, or dating is becoming harder and harder? :/
Anyway, hi! I'm Raphaël, a French single dad living near Paris with my 8 years old son. It's been just us two for a while now, and the dating scene have been pretty rough on me, so I though I'd try it out here!
A little about me :
Anyway if you're interested in chatting feel free to contact me, maybe mention your age location, and add a picture so we can get the conversation going? :) I'm looking for a relationship based on trust and respect, pretty classic you might say. I'm also looking for someone that agrees to relocate, as being a single dad makes it hard to move around the globe. It's not for tomorrow of course but it's important enough to mention it. I'd be more than happy to help with the move as it's scary and expensive, money being not a problem for me!
So yeah, see you soon I hope :)

2023.06.03 13:46 DarkUpside I no longer trust my friend and haven’t told her 30NB 26F

Very long story short, I no longer trust someone I considered to be a valued and important friend to me. I no longer want to hang out, or bond, because I have zero intention of being vulnerable with her ever again. To me, it’s kinder to just decline hanging out but still be pleasant, because I don’t hate or dislike her. And she’s the type to want to fix things but broken trust is not something I am willing to try to repair. I do not give second chances to people who don’t value me. I believe in actions more than words, so I don’t want an apology.
Our mutual friend thinks she has no idea that what she did was so harmful or how I’m feeling, so I should talk to her about it but there’s nothing she can do to fix it, so I’m not sure why we should talk about it. I have CPTSD and am unable to ever be relaxed or feel safe around someone who has broken my trust. It’s done now. I couldn’t trust her again even if I wanted to.
In a situation where reconciliation is not possible, but it’s not because you hate the person, but you just don’t want to be close friends anymore, what would you consider to be a preferred course of action?

2023.06.03 13:45 swazer_t21 Theory on future rounds and what happen up next

So, I will go into the rounds first
Round 9 : (King Leonidas) vs Apollo - Greece vs Greece
Round 10 : Simo Hayha vs (Loki) - The Man Who Never Missed vs The God Of Mischief
Round 11 : (Okita Soji) vs Susanoo - Sword Fight
Round 12 : Rasputin vs (Anubis) - The Immortal Man vs The God of Life And Death
Last Round : Nostradamus vs Odin
** The aftermath ** This part is totally my imagination **
While the last round is being played out, Siegfried is back and comes to the arena. Which shock Odin to the core, and also the demons from Tartarus hell is chasing after Siegfried too. The tournament is a mess right now. Gods and human take no chance and start attacking each other, and this is where Loki fight Okita
( And something special happens here : like the truth about Odin or Zeus is exposed, or something like that. I'll let the author think for me at this part )
Then Ares shall come and become the new leader of the gods, alongside with Jack, both of whom were moved by Hercules's word. Have the best speech ever about how human is still worth living. Then there are peace for a thousand years more

2023.06.03 13:45 AsleepCockroach4780 The ghost in the corner

So let's start of by saying I'm a 16 year old guy and this happend about a year ago. I have always felt connected to spirits and the world around them, not only this but my mother also has it a little (I feel and experience more than she does).
Anyway one day when we were out camping with friends and family I could tell something was up with my mother. At first I thought she was just being moody. After a while she just kind of zoned out and stopped chiming in on the conversation, this made me a little concerned as she always loves having a good chat. At one point she was standing next to the river by herself and I decided I would go and talk to her. I asked her if she was ok and she replied with yes. I asked if she was sure and that's when she looks at me and says to not tell my father if she told me.
Let me also say my father doesn't really believe in spirits and stuff so me and mum usually don't bother talking about it to him.
Anyway I said ok and next thing she says to me is that there's a spirit in their room. All of a sudden an image pops into my head of an old man who was about 60-70 years old standing in a corner of my parents room, I could see him well and all his features were very visable. I asked my mum if that's what she felt and she said yes. This creeped me out more than usual because I wasn't even near the spirit but I still felt it. After our conversation mum was back to normal and happy again. However I couldn't shake the feeling of it.
We stayed camping for another couple of days and we were all good. However when we got back I asked mum if she could still feel it, she said no. I was a bit worried. The reason was because I could still feel it but it wasn't in their room anymore. He was in my room. I didn't tell my mother though cause she wouldn't believe me as she couldn't feel it anymore.
Later that night when I went to bed I could see him just standing at the end of my bed, just looking. He had no expressions nothing he was just staring. I ignored it as I have seen many of ghost in my life. The next day when I woke up though he was gone. I couldn't feel him anywhere in the house and I haven't seen or felt him since.
If anyone knows why I could still feel him like 500 km away from my house let me know. Also let me know why he moved to me and blocked my mother from sensing him...
