My best friend started drinking heavily again and most likely stopped his depression meds.

He called me blackout drunk at 3am this morning telling me to come party with him. I wake up at 5 for work so I was fucking pissed. Itís almost 3pm on the east coast right now and he just texted me that he had just woken up and does not remember the last 24 hours. He had 5 empty wine bottles in the living room and woke up fully dressed.

Iíve seen this happen to him a bunch over the years and iím seriously over it. I want to help him but he doesnít want help. He keeps saying heís fine and that heís about to start therapy, which he never does in the end.

Shitís bumming me out

i don't know what's up with this but police activity has been through the roof in my neighborhood. they raided a house across the street a few days ago and every night there's police hold ups right in front of my house. blaring sirens constantly. i feel like i live in some sort of hood. except i guess there's not even a lot of police presence in an actual hood.

also hearing my dumbass neighbor scream at his gf every morning through the kitchen walls sucks. i still think the dude beats her up, but i can't really prove it and worst of all she seems like she's kinda complicit in his behavior. i'm not sure if i'm overstepping boundaries if i called the cops on him when i hear him going full aggro again. they were here once and she apparently shushed them away.

also i'm fucking broke and need to come up with something in the next two weeks lol. just packing boxes at ups would do for now. it's some money at least.

If they're just yelling at each other, I'd say, talk to your neighbor next time the dude isn't around and see if she is alright or wants you to call the cops next time things heat up.

Yeah, some people are locked into gnarly relationships where it seems like both people are abusing each other. Shit sucks.

man, i haven't seen her in months. it almost makes me think she is somewhat homelocked. and i'm basically on don't talk to me terms with the guy due to another thing, actually there's potential for violence if we meet next time. i basically said to him he should stay the fuck away from me. dude stood in front of the house taunting me to come out and fight him. i gotta deal with this without ringing at their place somehow. i thought of maybe putting up an awareness flyer about domestic violence in the hallway could signal support? at the same time, i don't want to be dragged into their shit. i know they've been living together for years, they lived in a different apartment together for years prior to moving into our house.

they are so loud you can hear the guy scream shit like "you damn cunt, do x/y or it's fucking on!" from outside. next time i see the dude living under them i want to ask him if he hears that shit, too.

i was oblivious to the fights cuz of my sleeping schedule at the time but then my roommate told me about it and after i had to be up when he is up i heard it, too. i don't want to call the cops on them for nothing if she is somewhat complicit due to them being used to their super toxic relationship. since i haven't seen her in ages, i can't tell if she has visible signs of abuse, and even then, some scumbags beat their women tactically, not in the face so no one sees it immediately, and this dude is putting up a friendly facade so hard while being an obvious tyrant at home that i would guess he'd operate like that.

Hoping to buy a mountain bike, but pickings are slim trending toward grim. Shops I inquired with the second week of February that told me ďcheck back, we have more comingĒ have less now than they did then.

I feel you man. Had the exact same situation last year during quarantine, finicky newborn not sleeping, 2 year old not wanting to sleep in her own bed, both my wife and I working from home. We were at each others throats. It really does suck the motivation to do anything right out of you.

been having some pretty gnarly pains few days after a quick and mellow shoulder dislocation. gonna have to call someone up tomorrow, shit is lame. just had to get an mri on my ankle, waiting on results.

on top of that I fucked up my ulnar nerve a lil while ago, currently it functions at half of my good one.

shit comes in threes.

Piling onto new baby talk.

New baby is a total joy. But she seems to have 3 modes: <2 hour naps, breastfeeding, and crying. The house is full of junk that we'll use for 6 months max. This is taking a serious toll on the lady's mental health.

On top of that, anyone covering your ass at your job for parental leave is non existent. I'm lucky I have a job that is computer/remote based but I'm working in the middle of the night to keep up and keeping an ear out for a crying baby and trying to not lose my shit in the middle of the day. I hope things get better.

The weirdest thing happened to me today, I was at Aldi waiting in line and the people in front of me were taking ages and then as it was my turn I was saying something to the check out person and then it was just hectic tunnel vision and I was like jerking around trying to stand up straight and I fell over and smoked my knees and I rolled the shit out of one of my ankles. I think I hit my head or something, too
Thatís never happened to me before it sucked
It was really embarrassing and a bit scary

Not a seizure or anything I think I fainted?

Damn Matty. Wish I could offer an explanation. The only time something like that happened to me is when I smoked too much weed and blacked out and woke up seconds later on the ground.

Sounds scary as fuck.

How old are you, and what kind of medical issues do you have?

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

you got insurance? I don't know what it's like in AU. you probably do. You might be able to get an EEG or and EKG, not sure which, to see if there is anything going on in your brain that is worth noting

I've fainted a few times, vasovagal response. First happened when I was a little kid, out of nowhere. It's happened when I got too high on weed a couple and wasn't breathing enough as well as when I've had to have blood drawn. It also happened during a panic attack. Tunnel vision, collapse, hit head etc. When it's happened to me, I've may have been mildly dehydrated from too much alcohol the night/days prior, my blood sugar has been low to the point where if I eat a snack I'm feeling much better.

Damn, hope you're alright brother
stay high, lay low

I used to pass out for a couple seconds a lot when I was younger, if I would stand up too fast.

I just kinda grew out of it, I still don't know what the deal was.

You know I actually was real fucking high yesterday
Maybe that was it? Now that I think about it I have had mad headspins from standing up before but nothing that actually made me fall over. I am at work but just chilling today I think I will go to the doctors this arvo or tomorrow cause I still feel a bit light headed but nothing like yesterday

I donít think I have any health issues but I probably smoke and drink too much

 I was hit by by a freight train while out for a walk a little under a month ago. It was midday and I was sober, but I had my headphones in and was walking with my back to the train.
 I was walking on the path directly to the left of the tracks, but must have cut to the right at the exact moment the train passed me. A complete fuck-up on my behalf.
 Ended up with two fractures in my spinal column, needed my head stapled shut in two places, and generally just fucked my entire right side up.

 I seem to be healing quickly, but skating is out of the question for the foreseeable future.
 I'm a goddamn idiot.

Wow, that's really heavy, but I wouldn't beat yourself up pal, that could happen to anyone. Any time you feel bad about it, try and just be thankful you're alive and count your blessings. Heal up quick pal <3
