2023.03.24 07:54 Cautious_Gap3645 Determining my hourly rate as a contractor - taking into account self-employment tax, etc.

A contact of mine (CEO of a startup) has approached me regarding doing some contract work for him. He says they're pretty interested in hiring me full time if the contract goes well. My hourly rate for total cash compensation at my most recent full-time job (in a similar space as this contract role) was $97/hr. This job also offered equity-based compensation (it was a startup, though, so actual value unclear until they exit), benefits, etc.
My understanding is that the additional tax I would be paying as a contractor is 7.65% (my half of Medicare and Social Security taxes). I'm also on COBRA right now and paying $545/month for benefits.
So, factoring in these two things, the current figure I have arrived at is $108/hour. Note that I'm not currently factoring in the lack of an equity grant (compared to my previous job) and lack of 401(k) and other benefits (LTD, etc.) into this compensation - could perhaps go higher as a result.
He initially suggested milestone based compensation but I told him the work is too open-ended and exploratory (it's not even clear that what he wants me to do is possible - it's in fact an open research question, as far as I can tell) for milestone based compensation to make sense at this stage, though could revise at some point during the contract. He then suggested hourly.
My honest estimate of what he wants me to do is at least several months of full time work. I'm planning to say that I am willing to commit to up to a two month long contract (shorter is fine with me), after which we can mutually assess if it's a good fit for a longer term role.
I intend to work 40 hours per week. Does this seem like a reasonable way to compute my hourly rate as a contractor? Is there anything else I should take into account?

2023.03.24 07:52 Ok-Yogurtcloset1755 Team 15 / Memphis Blue

Make it make sense.... For several months we have been listening to you whine, cry, and beg every single day for the love of your life to come back home. How you just can't go on without him and how he is your everything. Telling team 15 that you need to raise money so that the two of you can move out of the area you are currently residing in because it is an area with no jobs and is drug infested. Oh and also that you need to raise money to pay for rehab for this "love of your life" so that when he gets out of prison he can get the help he needs. But..... now you are upset that Twatts moderators messed up you going out on a date with him. Stating that he listened to them and has to ask them for permission. So how in love are you really Abby? Are you sure that your love fairy-tale is not just another sympathy story told to collect sympathy throws? Just like you throwing the lion you threw to Twatts in his face now because he didn't throw you one back. Make it make sense. Way to many inconsistencies in EVERY thing you say. I love Tiktoc as much as the next person. However, if it does go away (as it probably will) I definitely will not miss all of the lies and fabricated stories that you tell on a daily basis in order to get people to feel sorry for you. You will actually have to get your life together and survive just like every other person on the "planet" 🤣

2023.03.24 07:52 aaa_choo How do I help my girlfriend

Hi everyone :)
Background: My girlfriend and I have been dating for 5 months today. She's the best. She's funny, pretty, super smart and very charismatic. I love her so much. We typically communicate very well (or so i though) with eachother and are very straightforward when it comes to discussing our relationship. We are both non-religious and virgins. Neither of us are in a hurry to advance that either.
Situation: Last night I was hit with a few texts that kind of bothered me. Here's the first "i dont like when u help me it pisses me off /lh". /lh is a tone indicator that means "light hearted". We use tone indicators because we both have trouble interpreting texts. Anyway, I didn't understand why I piss her off when I help, so I asked.
"okay anyways the reason i get pissed off when u help me isnt cuz i dont appreciate the help its jus cuz i feel like i should be able to do things on my own like my parents think im so smart and i cant even focus enough on my hw to avoid stupid mistakes. but im sure u already got that. jus clearing it up cuz i get so pissy for no reason and its not ur fault lol" she said. I don't understand this, why does she treat herself like that.
The second text she sent me that night was foreshadowed when she said "I have smth to tell you later tn when I'm comfy and in bed". The text read "my grandma died! like, a while ago! talkin like over a month ago. remember that convo i had w ur mom at the superbowl thing? i was just lying, she was dead already". The convo she was referencing was about what she was doing visiting her grandma. She had told my mom they were visiting her grandma when is reality she had died and they were going up to see her grandpa.
I don't understand why she puts all of this weight on herself. I ask her for help all the time, does she think poorly of me because of that? People get tripped up on math all the time, it doesn't mean you're stupid. She hold herself to such high standards and I see it affect her negatively. It hurts me to see her feeling this way. I want to do all I can to make her feel happy, but she doesn't let me.
How can I help her? I compliment her all the time, I always text her that I love her every night, I take her out when I can, I let myself be vulnerable around her and i let her be vulnerable around me. I'm trying so hard but it just isn't working and it makes me upset.

2023.03.24 07:50 Other-Borderlands J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]

J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]
J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]
This game is part of a series of games, where I am writing games for all 52 cards for a borderlands in the UK. Each one includes a story of how I imagine the game playing out. You can find all entries here.
Venue: Castle
Player limit: Four
Rules: The castle is split into two sections, The jacks side, and the Player side. The Jack starts with 80% of the gold. Across two hours, players must steal gold from each other’s treasuries. Each team also has a jail, and if a player is caught in the wrong half, they are sent to the jail. If all players are caught, they get one free release. If it happens again it is game over for the team. If a player can get to the jail without being caught they can free one of their team members. Each team also has five keys. Keys can be given one each to each player, in total each team has an A, B, C, D, and M key. These can be used to lock and unlock doors of the same class throughout the castle. M can unlock any door.
While in the treasury players cannot be caught.
The Keys not used are stored in the base and can be stolen by an attacking player, instead of gold. Only two players may be left on defence, one at the prison/safe zone and one at the treasury. Players may only carry one gold item.
Violence is prohibited and punished by a shock from the bracelet.
Sixth Day of Exhibitions

Remaining Games
James sat outside the castle, a bracelet on his wrist, awaiting the opening of the gates. Next to him sat three more bracelets, in front of a sign, reading ‘take one. Four players are needed to begin.’
He sat for a few hours, watching the art of the card hanging from the blimp. The Jack of Clubs. He looked at the castle, it’s architecture, marvelling in a way he had never done before.
He heard someone approaching, and looked down to the familiar form of Ben walking up.
James looked at him, calling out “Looks like you’ve lost your security force!”
Ben walked up to the table, putting on a bracelet.
“I’ve lost a lot since we last met.” He said quietly, and quite uncharacteristically.
“Well there are two more chairs, you can tell me all about it while we wait for the other players.” James said.
Ben recounted his encounter with the Jack of Hearts, and James told Ben about the King of Diamonds.
It was clear Ben had been to a new low after losing the school, and had built his way back to some semblance of his former self’s confidence.
They waited until about three in the afternoon, before three figures approached.
“That’s… not possible…” Ben said.
“What a group of familiar faces!” James said, as they watched Mia, Alex and Ellis approach.
Ellis got there first, nodding to Ben, who nodded back. Mia walked up with Alex, and they explained their ordeal with the King of Spades.
“Well, it looks like we’ve all been through a lot. Maybe we can put the past behind us, and play one more game…” James suggested, holding up his wrist with the bracelet.
“There ain’t no way I’m playing another game after that.” Alex said.
“Well, if you ask me, I’m down for another crack at a face card game.” Ellis said, his familiar smile plastered over his face.
“Well, have fun waiting, cause I’m with Alex. There is no way you’ll catch me playing a game again, especially not with him.” Mia said, pointing at Ben.
“Come on Mia, remember how well we worked together in the nine of spades, and the oh aren’t getting out of here if you don’t beat this guy.” Ben said, pointing up at the picture of the Jack above them.
“Fuck off Ben. I’ve heard about the shit you’ve pulled since I ran off. I’m not joining the game.” Mia said.
“Look, trust me, I’m different now. Reformed if you will. Please, Just this one.” He said, offering her a bracelet.
“Fine. But just know I don’t think of you any higher than previously. I’m just joining to win.” Mia said, clicking the bracelet around her wrist.
The doors began to creak, opening.
They approached, cautiously, watching the sunlight streaming out from it.
Four figures approached, James estimated they weren’t much older than them.
“Look who’s come out to play….” The Leading one said.
“Jack!?” Mia said, in disbelief. “That’s not possible… You’re in hospital… The Crash…”
“Looks like Jack’s the Jack. And also here and recovered from his coma.” James noted, looking at Jack.
“Well, looks like I missed something.” The Jack said, before beconing them in.
“Ben, I’ve been watching your group intently for a while now, and seeing how you led. See, you and I took a different approach. While you chose to lead by force, I chose to lead with equality. Your approach ultimately failed, and you have only managed to gather a group to try and defeat me by humbling yourself. However, your efforts will likely be in vain. As you have learned, and we learned a few years ago, its kill or be killed. One of either groups lives must be sacrificed to continue the lives of the others. We thank you for the sacrifice you will likely make today. It’s nothing personal, don’t worry.” He said, walking in front, towards the centre of the courtyard.
Mia turned and looked at Alex, as the gates shut, obscuring her. It could likely be the last time either of them saw each other.
The Jack began to explain the rules as James surveyed the area, seeing a large screen with ‘player’ and ‘citizen’ written on it, with a large dividing line running down the centre, as well as through the castle.
The layout of the game showed the castle split into two halves, and He knew he was on the player side. He looked at his bracelet, flashing up five images of Keys, one labeled A, B, C, D and M.
When the Jack finished the rules they were told they would have five minutes to plan before the game began.
“So, the way the game starts, it’s impossible to win for us by playing defensive. We are forced to play offensive, but the Jack can only have two full defenders, slightly levelling the playing field. However, this means that the Jack, until we have around equal values of gold in our treasury, can just keep his team on their side as defence.” James said, drawing out a little diagram in the courtyard floor. “We are forced into playing offensive at this point, so that means we have to figure a way around the defence. Because defenders need to escort the people they catch to the prison, we could all run at once and make it past the first defenders here.” He pointed. “Then we arrive at the limited section of defence, where one player needs to run from where the prison is, as that will not yet be guarded. Because someone is running that way, those who are caught should try and stall for time. Then, one person should be able to make it into the treasury, and they simply need to sprint back to get us some gold. Then they can be caught, releasing everyone wit the free release. We can then think more carefully then with a levelled playing field.”
“But what about Keys?” Ben countered.
“Well, for us to need keys there must be locked zones. So, if we assign someone the M Key, and give the other person no Key, they can block a capture from the other team by stepping in front. SO If we give either Mia or Ellis the M key, I’ll take no key and go with them, leaving the other two with designated keys and two keys left at our base.” James suggested.
“Seems like a decent plan.” Ellis said, and they assigned keys, lining up at the centre line, watching the other two walk along it. He recognised them from his school. Ben wondered how they had gotten from the crash to here, they had been in critical condition when he went o the theatre, and now they were claiming to have been here for years… Perhaps it was aliens.
“The Game Has Begun.” The Voice droned, and They enacted their plan.
Ellis and James ran over, and one of the defenders tried to tag him. James jumped in front, getting sent to the prison. Ellis raced towards the door at the end of the courtyard, and he ran into the inside of the castle. He looked around, running through various passageways, before seeing a guard, and he quickly turned tail and ran. He watched Mia run in from the other side, into the room he was guarding, and pick up something large and golden. He kept racing, catching sight of her outside the window.
Ellis quickly jumped through the window to his right, landing with a shoulder roll, and sprinted towards Mia. He watched another defender running for her, and he pushed him out of the way. He was led to prison, and Mia cleared the line.
The gold total on the screen now changed, showing the player team now had 378 gold in their treasury, the citizen team having 622.
Mia took a deep breath, seeing that that incident had taken one sixth of the time, now having fifty minutes left. She was also the only uncultured member of her team. Getting caught would use up their only jailbreak, so it may be worth trying to free them.
Also, Mia knew that she could get to the prison with the Key she had, but wether they had changed the keys they had locked the doors with was unknown.
She walked up to the line, looking at the two defenders who were in the courtyard with her. She made a run for it, note vent making it to the courtyard wall before she felt a hand on her back. Her bracelet indicated she had been captured, and the screen announced that their whole team had been captured and that they have used up their one Jailbreak. All of their team were returned to their half.
“We can’t afford to do that again.” James said. “Because even if we manage to get an item of the same value to put us in the lead, we would only have one defender. No, we need to think of a stealthier strategy.”
“Well, the castle windows are quite close together. Someone with good arm strength, say Ellis, could climb around the outside, and into the treasure room. Then they could climb back with an item without the team realising.” Ben suggested.
“I recon I could do it…” Ellis said, walking over to look out the window.
“Well, good luck then.” James said.
Ellis climbed out the window, putting his feet on a lower ledge, keeping his hands on the ledge. He scaled his way around the outside, carefully moving one point of contact after the other, first his foot, then his hand, repeat. As he got further and further around the castle, the higher the gap between him and the ground became. He arrived at what he thought was the treasury, and pulled himself up, climbing in, and grabbing an easily carrialble item that seemed to be valuable.
He dropped back out of the window, alone of the defenders opened the door, and he began to climb around the outside. He heard someone running, and continued around the outside.
He stopped, feeling a pain on his hand.
“Hello Ellis. I’ve always wanted to do this.” The defender said, bringing his foot into Ellis’ face. He repeatedly did so, until ellis let go of the ledge.
Ellis fell, and the defender shot backwards, electricity coursing through his body. He lay there, and coughed a little, before getting up.. He hated Ellis. He had bullied him for years. Good riddance, he thought.
Ellis crashed down into the floor, has bones cracking, before the laser put him out of his misery.
James and the others watched as the screen showed the words ‘Elimination’.
“A player has been eliminated for leaving the game area.” The Voice announced.
James looked at the screen, showing their score hadn’t changed. 378 - 520.
This meant that Ellis must have been the one eliminated. James hung his head a moment.
He walked up to Mia and Ben, who were defending the base, informing them of the discovery.
They were sad, and they knew that they were now at a severe disadvantage. One player down, and in second place in scores.
James discussed a third plan with them.
“Well, we are at a serious disadvantage. We are one player down, and they can afford to play full defence. We have very few options.” James said, “I think we can try to use Mia to try and draw out the defenders, and then Ben can run in and grab the flag. It is risky, as it is four on one or two, but it seems like the only option.”
“Well, we don’t have many other options.” Ben said, looking at the timer on the screen, 20 minutes left.
Mia walked up to the line alone, as James and Ben walked their way through the castle, using their A and D keys to try and get through the castle. They arrived at a locked door, locked with a B key.
“Damn!” Ben said. They had to find another way around, and turned and walked up a flight of stairs.
Mia was on the line, talking to one of the defenders, asking for Jack.
Jack walked out, and one of the others walked back, taking his place.
“Well Mia. How nice to see you. We’ve not had a proper chance to talk yet, have we?” Jack said, and Mia looked at him.
“I wish I could say it was nice to see you, but the circumstances don’t allow for it.” Mia said. “So, why are you here?”
“Well, I am here because I am the Jack of Clubs, but that doesn’t sound like what you meant. In truth, I’m only here because I don’t want to die. Sounds a bit ironic, but in this world, we know life isn’t worth much. That means there is no god, no afterlife. Nothing. I can’t afford to go yet. I still have so much more to do with my life. I’m sorry we will have to sacrifice your life for ours.” The Jack said.
“I’m very sorry that I’ll have to politely decline.” Mia said, racing across the line.
Jack ran after her, followed by the other defender. She looped around, doing out of the way of his swipes, and rolled past him.
While this was happening, James and Ben had gone up a few floors, and worked through various locked doors. They arrived at the top of a staircase, guarded by another of the Jack’s guards. He didn’t seem to notice them.
Ben stepped out, shouting to him, “Catch me if you can Dustin!” Before bolting down the corridor, as James hid behind the door.
As they ran past, James ran through the door, locking it behind him. He continued down the corridor, towards the treasury of the Jack’s team.
He slowly descended the stairs, seeing a guard stood in front of the door. James knew it was a risk, but he climbed over to the window, and crawled into the treasury.
He grabbed a bag of small jewels, and climbed back up again, quietly. His arms hurt from pulling himself up, but he continued out towards the windows to the courtyard.
He spotted Mia still dodging attempts to catch her, and she caught his eye. She lead them as far away from the window as she could, before James jumped out, wincing as he landed badly. He got up, and was running.
He saw himself getting closer and closer to the line, and he jumped across it, before sprinting back to their treasury, gasping for breath, bent over, hands on his legs.
Mia came in later, informing him he had tipped the balance in their favour. Now all they needed to do was wait for the attack from the Jack’s team.
Mia was left guarding the treasury, while James went to guard the prison. There were five minutes left, when the Jacks team made a last ditch effort for the lead.
They ran all at once, trying to make it to the treasury. James and Mia managed to catch them all, and they sat together in the prison of the player team, as the last few minutes ticked down.
The Jack had turned to the wall, and was crying into his arms.
“I can’t die…” He said, tears streaming from his eyes. “Please, let us live. Please-“
His team mates tried to comfort him, but this was a difficult task in the face of death.
James spoke to their three captives as the time ticked down, James told him as well what he meant about the crash. "20 dead. 19 left in critical condition. Was on the radio as I left for school. We tried not to think about it, but..." He trailed off.
Jack changed the subject, ad they continued to talk, and James even managed to make Jack and the other laugh. It was as it was before. Before the crash, before they arrived here. But the laughter was hollow. The people who he were talking to were as good as dead.
“Well, I hope you use your well earned life w-w-isely.” The Jack stuttered.
James looked at him sadly.
The Laser ended the game, as the voice announced the game had been cleared by the players.
Ben, Mia and James walked out of the castle, as the blimp exploded behind them. The face burning and peeling, and they looked at the remaining games.
The King of hearts.
Ben told them he would go out and try to clear it, and James and Mia agreed to help him.
As they walked towards the Church above which the King of hearts blimp hung, an announcement rang out over the city.
“There is only one game remaining. The Game is the King of Hearts. To join, please make your way to the venue.”
James looked back one final time, seeing the crushed body of Ellis lying at the base of the castle.
He turned, watching the King of Hearts blimp in the distance.
The deck was almost complete.

2023.03.24 07:50 IndependenceBoth5296 I’m broken I don’t even know what to feel

Why can’t my marriage just be normal why can’t we just not argue over money even if he says it’s not about money when that’s the thing he gets mad at me for . Just because I missed paying a bill and they turned off the internet I’m guessing it’s a few bills but I can’t even remember but yeah that happened and I had no money left and had no choice to ask my dad and thankfully he did lend to me but I paid with that and then they still won’t turn it back on so my husband had to pay for me to turn it back on because i need it for school and I knew that i was more worried not having food. But whatever with that he just seems to hate me not even want to be around me cause I make him angry so tonight he left back to his moms for the night and I know because I have his location. And his mom is always home so what he said through text wasn’t true and he even admit it and only said it to get me mad and told me that if I “ keep this up” meaning not paying bills on time that he will cheat and find someone better. Anyway about the text he left and I think it was 5 minutes out and text me “ yeah babe at least at my moms I’m not hungry and I’ll see you soon give me an hour “ and he text that to me and I was obviously freaking out called him ask him what the fuck does that me see you soon and told him to tell me and he wouldn’t say anything but just telling me to fuck off don’t bother him. And I told him I know that is a lie because obviously he knew what he was doing on his contact for me it says Wife with my picture on it and I know he wouldn’t even do anything like that cause he told me multiple times he wouldn’t because he would catch something and blah blah but he said if I don’t be better on everything then someday that will happen and ruin everything. That really broke me so much I just feel like leaving and idk figure it out alone

2023.03.24 07:49 lovesprite Ranbir kapoor says Sawarya's disaster status was celebrated.

Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor has seen more highs than lows in his career which spans over 15 years. However, the actor believes that his failures have always taught him more than his success and that he’s running his own race.
Ranbir made his acting debut in 2007 with ‘Saawariya’. He was then seen in hits such as ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, ‘Wake Up Sid!’, ‘Rockstar’, ‘Barfi!’, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’ and ‘Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar’.
Asked about when did he feel he’s a star, Ranbir Kapoor told IANS: “My first film itself was a very big disaster, the disaster-ness was celebrated but somewhere as an actor and artiste I had a deep conviction that flops and hits won’t matter to me. That gave me confidence.”
Ranbir Kapoor added, “I have never felt competitive towards anybody. I have never felt that I am better or worse than anybody. I feel like I am running my own race. I feel like I have very strong views on how and what I want to do in my life, the kind of films I want to do.”
“The kind of characters I want to portray and of course I am going to see a lot of failures.”
Ranbir Kapoor believes that “failures have always taught me more than my successes.”
“Whenever your films work, I promise you the only feeling you get is ‘phew!’ till the next one. But when you have failure, you understand, you introspect and come to perspective.”
He added: “I have had a very blessed 15 year career and I have a lot of self confidence in myself that I am the best ofcourse I don’t like to put that energy out and say it but I tell myself I am the best because that keeps me going.”
Before making it big as a Bollywood star, Ranbir Kapoor worked behind the camera as an assistant director for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the 2005 film ‘Black’ starring Amitabh Bachchan.
Does behind the camera experience gives more edge to an actor?
Ranbir said: “More than being in a film school, I learnt from being on a film set. When I assisted Mr Bhansali in ‘Black’ that one year period that taught me so much about movies. I was seeing actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji perform. I was seeing Mr Bhansali direct a movie.”
That experience really “grounded” Ranbir Kapoor.
He added: “I come from a little bit of a sheltered film family so going out – and Mr Bhansali is a hard task master, if you make a mistake he will reprimand you in front of everybody – I think that kind of training was important for someone like me. So, it prepared me for any failure in the world.”

2023.03.24 07:49 kingdomturtle_henlo Has anyone had positive/helpful experience with brain spotting here?

Hello all,
So, the title.
I am wondering about anyone's experiences with brainspotting here? It is something I've recently come across in the last 6 months. See, when I first heard about it, I thought, "Oh wow, this sounds like it could help me more than EMDR".
A quick overview of my therapeutic journey which gives some background to the question:
  1. So, when I began, I was not living around my family, and I had no idea that a safe environment would bring out all sorts of erratic behaviors and thought patterns. I was basically used to the chaos, so I tried to create the chaos in the safety/peaceful environment to create stability for myself. Rational, I know (/s).
  2. The safety created an onset of paralyzation. My poor husband at the time had to suffer through periods of me being mute and literally unable to speak. I would isolate myself in deep depression for days, and not talk to him or my closest friends. I was working on wounds from my GCNbrother.
  3. By chance, my therapist did ACT therapy. Overtime, I had a slight onset of Bipolar Disorder, and fortunately for me, ACT is similar to DBT which works well for people with BPD - hence why I naturally found the thought of CBT laughable lol (which I read does not work well for people with BPD, though I know there are exceptions).
  4. We got married and my new onsets got TERRIBLY WORSE. I knew something was wrong, and for the sake of myself and our marriage, I dove deeper into therapy and trying to work on myself. I focused on my maternal wounds. Previously, as I grew deeper in relationship with my husband while we were dating, I slowly struggled with Reactive Attachment Disorder. It progressively got worse as we grew deeper and got more serious, but NOWHERE near as bad as after we were married (as well as my depression). Pregnancy exacerbated it, to the point of fantasizing about suicide. Ofc I was never going to do it, and no, it wasnt just "prenatal depression" - it was severe struggle with RAD and BPD. But our baby motivated me a thousand times harder to figure out what was going on and eradicate it, because as I thought to myself at the time, I was NOT going to put our baby through my unresolved struggles and disorders. No way in hell. I was going to show bb a healthy mother, a healthy bond, attention, love, appreciation, etc, everything I wasnt given.. BUT first I needed to tackle my struggles. Those 9 months were like therapy Marine soldier mode. Regardless, it caused us so much suffering and struggles, I can't even begin to describe it.
  5. Throughout this entire time, I listened to The Place We Find Ourselves podcast, and one thing which was incrediblyyyyyy helpful was the therapist's teachings on how to focus on bodily sensation recognitions. I put this into practice as best as I could the entire time, and I believe it aided the healing process, I literally cannot stress this enough. The podcast therapist was slowly teaching me how to turn my oppression on its head, and I'm forever grateful. My therapist loves the podcast, too, so we were definitely in the same wavelength. (I can't link it, so here's the page on spotify:
  6. We went through an extremely life changing, traumatic event. And I'm convinced the event affected my brain, which "bound" me more to my husband & the safety he provided my heart. The event basically was a 2 second culmination and effect of like 2-3 years of therapy work. I wish it hadnt happened that way, but it did. After that, I no longer struggle(d) with BPD or RAD. I had no idea not struggling with love, and accepting his affection was so freeing. Or my MIL's love, either, who is the mom I didnt have. Remnants come up now and then, but they are like levels 1-5 out of 10, compared to level 50+ out of 10 from before. (Husband is truly the most patient and loving man, and I cant believe hes still by my side, but here he is ;______;)
Okay - on to the question.
At one point, I stayed with a friend for 2 weeks to give us space and processing time. Unbeknownst to me, my husband had an appt with our marriage therapist (we attended sessions from the time we were engaged, all the way through being married). He suggested that maybe i had RAD, and thought brainspotting would help. My husband didnt mention this to me until now, 1 year later, when I brought up my interest in brainspotting recently.
I know it's a bit new, but I looked more into it, and am more interested in working with it. One thing I heard is that it helps your body/mind "connect" to memories/events you are disconnected with. I think it could help my leftover remnants and help me heal more, since I fall under the category of people who it could benefit, and it seems some of us here would, too. I think I could be a candidate, too, due to the previous severe symptoms I had.
Here is a link with more info:
My thought is to find a therapist who is trained in brain spotting, and work with them temporarily. Then, maybe have them share the session notes with my therapist now, since I'd like to keep working with them. I
Has anyone here used this before? What was your experience like? How many sessions did you do? If you have, what have been the biggest improvements you've noticed? Did you try any previous techniques that didnt help as much as brainspotting did? If you havent, what are your thoughts or comments on it?
Thanks, all

2023.03.24 07:49 TechnicallySoup101 I make my crush uncomfortable..

So basically.. Yeah. My brother is friends with this girl I like, she's lesbian and I'm bi, they introduced us a year ago and.... I'll admit I was extremely weird back then, I was in an extremely toxic relationship and just wanted some attention that wasn't caused by me crying about then gf saying she would kill herself. I've been trying to work on it, and I've gotten better about not being so awkward. I'm more straight forward and confident in myself.. Except when it comes to her. Idk what it is about her but I just can't seem to gather any confidence and try to flirt with her. She makes me nervous and my palms start to sweat and wtf why does my heart go THAT FAST??? Anyways. My brother just showed me a saved text from her, telling him that I make her uncomfortable. Idk what to do and it's such shitty timing bc I just asked her if I could kiss her a few hours ago and her response was "not right now". I wanna apologize and tell her how sorry I am for making her feel that way but I don't want to make it any more awkward between us..
If I'm being honest tho.. I have no clue how to act around her because every time we hang out its always bc she wants to hang out w my brother and his friend/her cousin. Our only interactions are because of that and it's so uncomfortable because of the fact that I know I don't fit in with them. No matter how hard I try, they're so different from me and it's obvious. I feel like they look down on me or hate me, I feel like 8th grade all over again lmfao.
I just don't know what to do so anyone pleaseee help. Thanks <3

2023.03.24 07:48 EvitoQQ Retro Joshi #435: JWP December 23, 1999, GAEA December 27, 1999 & Jd’ December 28, 1999 - Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu, Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato, Lioness Asuka vs. Cooga

Retro Joshi #435: JWP December 23, 1999, GAEA December 27, 1999 & Jd’ December 28, 1999 - Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu, Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato, Lioness Asuka vs. Cooga
JWP Solid Slider 12/23/1999 Korakuen Hall, Tokyo
4-5 minute were shown of each of the undercard matches. We had Acute Sae vs. Chihiro Nakano, Yuki Miyazaki vs. Tsubasa Kuragaki and Devil Masami vs. Kyoko Ichiki. None of these looked like particularly good matches, but it’s nice to see some faces we don’t often see like Miyazaki and Ichiki who are pretty good, even Chihiro has improved since leaving GAEA. Their opposition was pretty bad though. They showed 9:49 / 15:53 of Command Bolshoi & Carlos Amano vs. Dynamite Kansai & Kayoko Haruyama. Bolshoi submitted Haruyama. It was just your typical ** JWP match, you could guess what to expect - Kansai dominated, Haruyama wasn’t too good, Bolshoi and Amano were fine but it was pretty much just spots. Next came Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu, which we’ll come back to, and the show ended with the JWP ’99 PURE HEART SPECIAL PARTY which featured the ’99 awards where Kana Mizaki was named MVP. That’s such a weird decision because they never pushed her in any meaningful way and the other three of the fab four were pushed way ahead of her. Mizaki is actually the best wrestler in the group though, her three peers are basically focused on spots and bring little else to the table. As pure workers they are all stronger than Mizaki, but Mizaki is the one who has more a grasp on how a pro-wrestling match works at this point and she is far superior with psychology and selling.
JWP Openweight Title Match: Azumi Hyuga vs. Ran YuYu (24:22)
Hyuga jobbing to Bolshoi recently was a pretty good hint that we were likely to see a new champion here. They started out hot and for pure work, these really are the best two on the entire scene, everything they do looks great, they’re crisp and they work well together. They still don’t have the brain to work these long matches though and you end up with a lot of wasted time and stuff that just doesn’t go anywhere. The first half of the match was a lot of holds, they were all done well, Ran was really cranking up on a sleeper at one point but it came across as little more than time killing. They had a slapping fight at about the 12 minute mark and from there, the shit was on. They picked things up and it turned into high quality back and forth match with great execution, neat counters, big moves and good near falls. Both hit their finishers at the end but it wasn’t enough to get the win on this day, they both booted each other in the face for a double down and it was anyones match. After an exchange of German Suplexes, Hyuga went for a Destiny Hammer but Ran avoided it. Hyuga came back immediately with a boot and looked to finish but Ran caught her with a rana to win the title. The frustrating thing with these two is that they should be putting on excellent matches all the time but their mental blocks mean that they’ve been outdone throughout the year by the Jd’ kids, who might not be as talented but actually have the ability to work smarter matches. ***1/2
GAEA G-PANIC #29 Prophecy Hitting (12/27/1999 Korakuen Hall)
Gala night footage from 12/19, that was pretty damn funny. Then they showed highlights of the year.
Sakura Hirota & Toshie Uematsu vs. Chikayo Nagashima & Kaori Nakayama
They only showed the finish which saw Hirota roll up Nakayama to get the win.
Sakura Hirota & Toshie Uematsu vs. Mayumi Ozaki & Akira Hokuto (5:02 / 8:41)
All spots and brawling. Hirota and Uetamsu were getting thrashed but interference from KAORU using barbed wire prevented Ozaki from getting back to the ring so Hirota got a count out win. *1/2
KAORU, Toshiyo Yamada & Saika Takeuchi vs. Aja Kong, RIE & Sugar Sato (11:34 / 14:05)
Takeuchi showed some spirit, but she had no chance. I like her, she just throws everything she has at her opponents even if there’s nothing she can do to them. RIE used the barbed wire and busted her open. Action was good throughout and it had some structure. Everyone did their job well enough, except RIE who still can’t swing a weapon. Aja was the best as usual. The finish saw everyone getting taken out, leaving RIE alone. Yamada did her Reverse Gory Special, and then Rocket Launchered the bloody and battered Takeuchi onto RIE to give her the big pinfall, which was pretty cool. ***1/4
Chigusa Nagayo & Meiko Satomura vs. Lioness Asuka & Sonoko Kato (7:40)
This was a really big match on paper with the tension between Satomura and Kato and the Crush Gals on opposite sides, but it was 8 minutes and only existed for the purposes of a big angle. The best exchanges in the match were between Lioness and Satomura, and obviously Kato and Satomura work well together. The match was going along okay, Ozaki, Hokuto and the rest of the group ran in and beat the shit out of everyone in the match, so it was thrown out. Chigusa and Lioness fought back and did their old signature chop spot and a double team suplex, which was awesome and blew the roof off Korakuen Hall. Aja wasn’t too happy with Ozaki and Hokuto, and they seemed to set up Ozaki & Hokuto vs. Lioness & Aja. Match was nothing, but the post match angle was great. *1/2
Jd' Get Miracle Burning Hot 1999 12/28/1999 Korakuen Hall
They showed most of the undercard in digest form. Sachie Abe & Obatchi Iizuka vs. Hiroyo Muto & Ranmaru, Saya Endo vs. KAZUKI and Crusher Maedomari & Morimatsu vs. The Bloody & Fang Suzuki. Nothing of value was lost there, but Obatchi did a Sky Twister Press, or tried to, she did it no worse than ASARI does most of the time.
Megumi Yabushita vs. Yuko Kosugi (9:26)
This was fun and the action was fine, but it was pretty short and not really the same level we’re used to seeing from them. Yabushita won this one with a Tiger Suplex Hold. The highlight was her doing a swan dive tope con giro. Kosugi gave her typically solid performance, not sure if Yabushita got hurt at some point, but she was looking quite sluggish with her suplexes later in the match, particularly with her bridges. **1/2
Sumie Sakai vs. Nanae Takahashi (9:33 / 13:33)
Sakai was nothing short of excellent in this match. Her work was so smooth and fast, and she was on point with everything. The problem was Nanae dragged the match way down with her clumsiness. Nanae just can’t do anything, she sits around in holds and when she tries to work fast it’s a recipe for disaster. Here, she managed to screw up Sakai’s top rope rana by slipping off, which made for a nasty landing where Sakai almost landed on her head. She didn’t even execute her Nanarocker properly, which she got the win with. **1/2
TWF Title Match: Lioness Asuka vs. Cooga (18:31)
The final match of 1999, and the final match of Cooga’s career. Lioness was great here and did the best job of carrying Cooga of anyone not named Jaguar Yokota. The thing with Cooga is she’d have been a perfectly fine mid-level worker if she had the fire she did during her run as Miori Kamiya, she understands psychology a bit and has some nice offense, but it always looks so pathetic because there’s no impact at all behind it. This was the typical Lioness formula match, plenty of action, Lioness dominates, she uses her tables, but she gave Cooga enough and sold, so Cooga was a credible threat to her. Cooga looked better than she normally does thanks to Lioness but the usual issues around her offense remained. Cooga did score a pretty nice kick and a Destiny Hammer to get her biggest near fall of the match. Lioness busted out the moonsault, which is a rarity, and later she powerbombed Cooga from the apron through a table, then did a diving footstomp out in the bleachers. Cooga kicked out of a couple of Liger Bombs in the ring and she even kicked out of the Tower Hacker Bomb, so she had to bust out the Lioness Surprise Drop, which is basically a Fisherman’s Buster turned into a Falcon Arrow to get the win. Cooga unmasked after the match and retired. ***1/2

2023.03.24 07:47 lizardjoe_xx_YT Erosion and goi season of hope hard nerf khepri passive?

I personally think that these items just straight up nerf khepri as his whole passive constantly gives sheilds which means enemies will always get that speed boost Not only that but if these applied sheild debuffs effect khepris ult the revived teamates will have less then 300 health
I propose a change to his ult and passive.
For his passive instead of the sheil procking he will have a pet brood scarab that sends scarbablings to teamates affected by any buff he gives them. They last 5 seconds and can only be applied every 20 seconds. The scarablings provide 10 hp5(+2 per level) and 5 Percent damage mitigation. His ult now gives less sheild but upon activation and after the revive 2 scarabs circle the affected teamate and burst healing them for 2% health every second. They last as long as the ult does and if the teamate is revived they last an additional 10 seconds. This will allow his ult to still have use and be viable even if the sheilds get demolished by these items.
And the passive change gives him more support capabilities without constantly involuntarily buffing the enemies and getting debuffed.
Of course we have no idea how much these items will nerf khepri but i for one really want khepri to have little pets 😳👉👈

2023.03.24 07:47 Moses_the_Frog How should I convince my dad to stop smoking?

My dads been smoking since he was in highschool and now he is almost 50. He grew up in a bad environment in general so he fell into the very harmful habit of smoking. I didn’t really give much attention to it until recently. I’ve tried giving him a few pokes to give him a way to reconsider his habit of smoking but he goes back anyways. To make it worse, he even started using electronic vapes recently. To be real honest, I don’t know how he hasn’t had severe health issues yet, considering how long and how much he’s smoked. It also probably isn’t long until he does get some kind of severe issues related to his smoking habit. Idk how I should approach this problem in the first place. He just seems to not be able to break out of it. The longest he was able to temporarily quit was just for 3 years and eventually went back to it. Has anyone had a similar problem? Can someone give me any advice on how I should approach this? Thanks.

2023.03.24 07:47 ThrowAway----_- MIL always talks about how skinny she used to be.

Super random, but my MIL [61] is extremely self-consisous about her weight. She's 6feet tall and very overweight (no judgment). But literally EVERY time she eats ANYTHING she always says "oh gosh I'm such a pig haha" or "wow I never used to eat this much". And then she'll talk about how skinny she used to be, "when I was 30 I used to be a twig! I was 62kgs (136lbs) and I used to have all the boys follow me, now I'm overweight, but I swear I'll lose it again!" while proceeding to not do anything about it.
Idk why it annoys me so much, im 26, fit and healthy, but whenever my partner and I do anything cute together or get dressed up to go out or eat a bunch of food, she'll ALWAYS revert it back to how skinny she once was and how she was so attractive and could never put on weight. Like...okay? Um good for you??
She does alot of online dating with strangers from around the world. The other day, a guy offered to meet with her in our city, and she cried for an hour about how fat she is and how she feels insecure. So I said "surely he likes you because the photos you use are recent...right?" and she went silent. Turns out she's been old photos of her when she was younger and skinnier with the hopes that by the time she meets these men she'll be skinnier again (meanwhile she's hasn't changed her diet or exercised once). She's just so annoying and it's really infuriating.
If I have to listen to one more story about how skinny she used to be ill scream. I don't CARE if you were once skinny, just because you can't seem to let go of your youthful years does not mean I have to deal with your insecurities. And what's worse is that she calls her daughter fat - her daughter is 6feet tall and 160lbs - how is that fat? I am 5"7feet and 160lbs, so clearly she secretly thinks I'm fat too. I hope she gets a rude awakening one day because she's low-key an insecure bully.

2023.03.24 07:46 ijedi12345 Went for insane anime girls, got lots of romance (Menherafflesia: Flowering Abyss Review)

I finally got the chance to play this in my preferred language. I didn't bother with the original, since I didn't like the graphics and I got spoiled, but the Remake is pretty good!
Official link to the game on Steam:
Some points:
The vn is pretty neat - I feel it's more complete than the original, though it still follows the same general storyline. You also get to have some scenes with Yukimaru, who I think only appears in person unnamed in the original.
