^Quality brother right here. I usually get mine some Nikes and call it a day.
Before you say the music sucked, have you considered shutting the fuck up?

Trying to buy my brother an Xbox series x online is damn near impossible. My best bet is going to the mall on Black Friday and fighting everyone off

May the force be with you. Thereís so many things going against anyone trying to get the new, next gen consoles:

1) Chip shortage and slowed production and therefore thereís fewer units in each delivery

2) Resellers are botting every drop so they can slang em for double the cost. And knowing thereís a chip shortage, theyíre charging over $1k because they know the units arenít there.

Good luck, my friend. Iím rooting for you.

Trying to get my credit score up because I'm trying to move. The only thing I can do right now is pay off my car. The thing is they say that shit would actually lower my score because it would shorten my credit history. What do they want me to do, take on debt?(of course they do) Fuck that. I don't owe anybody anything and my credit card debt is below a third of my limit, but I can't seem to crack 700. Credit scores are bullshit. I wanna live in a cash world.

Iím one of the first aid people at my job.

I donít know whatís going on today, but since 7am:

A forklift driver broke his ankle

A guy got his thumb stuck in a machine, luckily itís only broken

Another guy cut himself with a box cutter because he wasnít wearing his saftey gloves. Because gloves are mandatory for handling anything that can cut, dude wonít be getting unemoyment insurance since he didnít follow rules.

And some girl fainted for no reason.

Itís only noon, can this fucking day end ?

@L33Tg33k Good luck. Credit scores are dumb. I'm waiting for a single late payment to fall off my credit score. Shit happened 5 years ago (I simply forgot I owed the bank 25 dollars) and it is still fucking up my score.

@whale good luck dude. Hopefully, the ultra sound confirms it is nothing.

My shit is relatively small, but it is haunting me. I was doing some shit the other day and on camera someone asked me some question about skateboarding. It was a question that doesn't make sense and I should have said, "Dude, I don't fucking know." Instead, caving to the pressure to say something, I gave the stupidest fucking answer that makes me look like I a complete dipshit.

Almost as bad as the time I was on a skate trip and I was filmed walking around with toilet paper sticking out of my pants.

Idk where to talk about this since I donít have family and I donít want to unload it on friends, so Iíll just post it here.

My health has been bumming me out, Iíve had constant issues for the past year and a half but doctors donít know whatís wrong, or donít even try to assess my health.

Iím constantly fatigued, lymph nodes in my neck are always swollen, heart palpitations, constant throat pain, dull pain in my abdomen, constant need to go to the toilet (both 1&2), loss of appetite, nausea, panic attacks, zero motivation or emotions. I just feel like Iím dying and Iíve gone to the doctors multiple times but they just prescribe me throat medicine/antibiotics or medicine to ease anxiety. Iím worried I have cancer or something, but it seems they donít take me seriously cause Iím fairly young and my blood tests donít seem to come back too poorly. I just donít know whatís wrong.

Fuck dude bummer. I have literally the same thing since 2015. Finally found an ok doctor like a year ago but even still I'm at a point where he is just like dunno man I've done everything I can think of. Also I have some spine problems so they like to just be like "yeah maybe it's connected to that" meanwhile I'm just trying to be able to breathe normally or not have my heart beating all shitty.

i'm really sorry to hear that, i have had similar problems with doctors not taking me seriously and not looking for the cause of my problems. i can only recommend looking for a younger doc that sort of in your age and might empathize with you. i feel like lots of the older docs don't even take you seriously unless blood values suggest something gnarly. my doc is now same age as me and i feel like he just has more empathy for my problems. the others would say shit like "yeah, stuff breaks when you get older..." and dismiss me, whereas he is taking every problem serious, even the minor ones.

EDIT:

the fact that they prescribed you antibiotics would suggest that the docs at least think it's possible you have some sort of bacterial or fungal infection. if they don't know the pathogen though it's kind of dumb to take them... as in questionable that they gave you the right one for the right pathogen they suggested. they may have given you some sort of broadband antibiotic that still failed to attack the actual pathogen if they never checked what it is.
could be a good idea if you could somehow get screened for a wide range of viral infections. there are some very complex ones that lead to syndromes that sound like what you have. i also wouldn't rule out a funghal infection if you happen to have encountered mold at your home or even tooth decay/rot as part of the problem.

but another thing: try to force yourself to eat, even when you're nauseous. it makes a ton of a difference if you manage to get some food into you after waking up and hydrate yourself. if you're body is working something out like this illness, it needs this energy more than usually. if you can't eat solid things just buy protein shakes and chug one. just get something in and drink enough water.

look i'm not a doc, but all your problems are occuring along your gastric system basically. i am very sure that you will already feel a little better when you get your eating behavior fixed. stay hydrated because that helps with the lining of your stomach organs which will make you feel less nervous down there. avoid excessive amounts of sugar and salt for some time and see how it goes. you can buy stuff like psyllium that will help you not having to go to the shitter thrice a day.

so sorry for the long edit post, but basically do this:

1. get good doctor that you trust, don't even let someone you feel is the same type asshole treat you, just bounce and go to the next

2. ask for viral blood scan and if you can afford, scans of your gastrointestinal tract and throat to make sure there's no cancer or other growths. another good idea would be to check if you are allergic against something. maybe you have a reaction against something that is always around you, and you don't even know it.

3. change your diet no matter what the outcome was, find something you can eat even when you're nauseous in the morning, make a habit out of drinking a tall glass of water at least every two hours if you are a notorious forgetter of hydrating yourself.

hope you find a doc that cares for your problem.

My best friend is setting himself up for disaster and I donít know what to do.

 Heís been dating this girl for about a year, is madly in love with her (takes a few days for him to fall in love), and the girl clearly is not into him as much as heís into her. Heís so blind about it, too, itís gotten almost pathetic.

Well on Friday night I saw his GF on Tinder ďlooking for something seriousĒ. So I did what any best friend would do, I did a screen shot of her Tinder profile and sent it to him telling him he should probably have a chat with her.

For my friend, a woman is a pure, mythical creature that can do no wrong whatsoever. He is completely incapable of saying no and will believe ANYTHING a woman tells him. Heís been played by every single one of his exís without exception. His last ex fucked all three of his former room mates in the same night and within days everyone was forgiven like nothing had happened.

He gave me the most pathetic, naive, gullible, and limp-dicked answer Iíve ever heard in regards to her being on Tinder without him knowing: ďHer friends must be playing a prank on her and hacked her. Yeah that has to be itĒ.

So her friends, in their early 30ís mind you, somehow got a hold of her phone, unlocked it, went through the trouble of setting her up with a Tinder account, wrote a carefully worded bio, set up nice pictures and went through the trouble of linking her Spotify and IG profiles to said profile ? Ö as a prank ?? This make any fucking sense to you ?

ďYeah I canít see why else sheíd be on it, thatís gotta be itĒ

Had he been in front of me, I would have slapped him for being so dumb and blind.

Heís very depression prone and has bad alcoholic tendencies. Itís been like this since Iíve known him and I know itís coming, yet he refuses to listen to me because somehow women never lie. Everytime a girl has left him, it was the end of the world. Heíd get blackout drunk and call me crying at 3 in the morning regularly. Heíd go hard on the booze and blow for a couple of months and itíd be a major shit show the whole time.

I truly donít know what to do. Iím cool with helping him through tough times, but fuck, Iíve been playing therapist with him for close to ten years and quite frankly, Iím getting tired of it, he refuses to change.

Heís about to turn 33, I canít take him by the hand his whole life.

(Apologies for the wall of text, that shit fired me up)

School shooting a few towns over from mine. I believe only three are dead and a handful are injured. Most likely won't even make national news because this type of thing is normal in the greatest country in the world.

I also heard that the kid who did it made threats to shoot up the school in the past, but nobody did anything about it. Seems like the go-to solution for these types of situations.

My girlfriend and I broke up a few days ago. Weíd been dating for a year and despite there being times that Iíd questioned our compatibility and how sustainable we were as a couple, I always thought it was worth it to try and work through our difficulties. Iím fucking devastated. Sheíd been pretty distant for the last 10 days or so of the relationship and had no trouble communicating why- I honestly hadnít been the best partner to her. Her emotional needs, which she clearly communicated often, werenít being met and me, being cared for so well, became too comfortable and complacent and didnít put in the effort to match her energy despite months of intimate conversations about this very topic. Classic case of the guy taking things for granted and not knowing how much he really had until itís gone.

We live together and are on good terms. Weíre both ebbing and flowing on the verge of mental breakdowns (me moreso) and caring for each other despite the circumstances. Sheís definitely not happy with the situation either but felt it was the right move and while I want more than anything to dedicate everything to bettering myself and making it work, I donít blame her for holding steady. Iím really beating myself up and feeling like a total scumbag piece of shit for fucking up something so great that should have been so simple (not necessarily easy, mind you) to fix and just generally not treating her the way she deserves to be treated. I wasnít as nice as I should have been. ďNot stokedĒ is an understatement. Iím going back and forth between wanting to die and trying to convince myself that things will look up at some point. God knows Iím living in hell for now, though.

^^Good luck dude.

And don't beat yourself up about it. Maybe you weren't perfect, but maybe you weren't taking care of her cause you were over it.

And, I think we all regret any sort of loss, even when we know it is for the better: I've regretted quitting jobs I fucking hated; I've regretted bailing on relationships that were bound to be nightmares; I've regretted bailing on relationships that were nightmares; and so on. It is only with a bit of distance that I can say, "Fuck me, how did I ever believe that was live-able?"

Try not to hyper-focus on the good of what you are giving up without recognizing all the bad that you are freeing yourself from.

Fucking dipshit Russel Brand. Everytime I open YouTube I'm recommended videos by this dickhead talking about how fucked Australia is. For anyone who cares at all Australia is and has been perfectly fine. Occasionally you have to wear a mask in certain businesses. That's about it.

After waiting months to get physical therapy they put me with a random who had zero interest in discussing my health and correcting my form.
It's a 45 minute commute each way to get a 25 minute session in a tiny, budget facility. My initial intake PT person was great, but I think I can only get in to see her once month at most.
The space has a cool exercise bike with special rotating handles for people with wrist/hand issues, but besides that its a fucking void.

The radiology office my insurance accepted to do my MRI apparently doesn't have a working phone number right now. I've been trying to get an appointment since Dec 2.
Getting medical appointments during the holidays is endless hold muzak and being repeatedly disconnected by staffs or automated dead end extensions.

Welcome to my nightmare. LOL

The good news is I have improved my anterior pelvic tilt a bit on my own and when I find a good PT person they can help me fold that into my routine. But that may be a long way off.
