RetroFuturism: For the fantastic, delusional dreams of our past.

2009.12.22 15:27 darkmuck RetroFuturism: For the fantastic, delusional dreams of our past.

This subreddit focuses on the futurist visions of eras past. However posts may also contain contemporary art with a retrofuturist theme. Futurism was born out of humanity's reaction to a sudden thrust into technological revolution. To the many that witnessed the rapid change, it seemed technological utopia was fast approaching. This unbridled optimism caused the collective imagination to run wild.

2023.06.09 15:52 eXeK_ks Windows 11 boot issue

Since I am temporarily moving out in a week, I wanted to install Honkai: Star Rail on my deck to at least do daily task when not near my main PC. I decided to install Windows 11 on my external SSD (Samsung T7 Touch) because I don't want to risk getting banned for using 3rd party launchers.
I downloaded Rufus and followed the guide I found on YouTube. Everything seemed fine but when I selected the Windows SSD from the boot list, it showed Steam Deck logo, told me to wait a little, and instead of beginning the Windows installation, it just booted to SteamOS like usual. I tried to format my SSD 3 times and each time it failed, I am confused since I followed the guide from beginning to end. Did Steam Deck had an update preventing booting from external drives? Is there a problem with SSD I am using? It does come with some software in order for fingerprint lock to work correctly but I'm not using it anyway.
Did anyone else encounter the issue?

What You Get:

Program #1

CTC Launches

(to master your launch and funnel sequences)
10X Launches is the first copywriting program fully engineered to speed up the execution and amplify your results of your emails no matter what kind of funnel or launch strategy you’re rolling out.
It’s built not only for best-in-class launch copywriters…
But for coaches, consultants, course creators, and ANYONE who stands to benefit from nailing down their launch and funnel copy faster and with more genuine impact.

2 “Core” Modules

That will initiate you into the “Coaching The Conversion™ method, and how to leverage a new, more empowering definition of “direct response” that opens up the floodgates to greater intimacy, empathy, and conversions.

5 “Launch” Modules

breaking down every single phase of your launch or funnel in full detail (including some you didn’t even know existed). You’ll learn exactly what’s at play during the Segmentation & Confirmation, Pre-Launch, Launch, Sales and Closing phases of your funnel and how to quickly craft the messaging that coaches your prospect into the final conversion in a powerful, non-sleazy way.

25+ Email Templates

None of that BS “plug’n’play” or “swipe and deploy” stuff that shoehorns your message into lifeless boxes that robs it of all life and power.
Instead, you’ll get FULL breakdowns and walkthroughs of the go-to templates I turn to over-and-over again in 6 and 7-figure launch campaigns.
Meaning, you get to craft your OWN high-converting launch emails in about 25 minutes flat and fire them into ConvertKit, ActiveCampaign (or wtv you’re using) while your coffee’s still hot.

Program #2

CTC Sales Pages

(to master your long form sales page)
This is it.
It’s where the best paid copywriters, coaches and course marketers on the planet earn their keep.
It’s where the conversion either happens or it doesn’t. In cold hard numbers that don’t care how many Clif bars you stress-ate in the process.
It’s where the most admired online business owners transform interest, desire, and engagement and into what you actually want: Sales.
So what is “it”?
It’s your long-form sales page.
And the truth is… most copywriters and marketers avoid long-form sales pages like the plague… treating it like a close-talking lepper with coffee breath… instead of the 24/7 salesperson your sales page – that final step in your marketing funnel – should be.
So why do marketers (and even pro-level copywriters) avoid sales pages?
Because writing a long-form sales page is intimidating AF.
It’s the Night King of the Whitewalker army.
It’s the Beef Wellington on Hell’s Kitchen.
It’s the Lord Voldemort of your marketing funnel – aka the funnel asset that shall not be named.
A long-form sales page is where you’ll spend dozens of hours writing THOUSANDS of words that will either confirm your claim as a top player in your space…
Or will tell you with Gordon-Ramsay-esque candor that your marketing wasn’t as good as your business coach told you it was.
There’s real pressure in that.
But there’s even real-er payoff in being able to do it faster – and more profitably – than anyone else in your industry. A payoff that even affords you the right to make up words like real-er
Confronting, yep? Conquerable. Absolutely.
In CTC Sales Pages, you’ll go through the exact process I’ve used to write over twenty 6 and 7-figure sales pages for the likes of Amy Porterfield, Copyhackers, and many more.

Program #3 & #4

Six Figure Emails & Seven Figure Emails

(for even more email conversion badassery)
Welcome to the “Johnnie Walker Blue” of our email template series.
This is the premium blend for more advanced marketing palates.
All pulled straight from my highest-performing launches for industry titans like Amy Porterfield, Todd Herman, Traffic & Funnels, and Copyhackers.
What you’re getting are 13 advanced email templates that you can use in a pinch when you need to write a standalone sales email, a webinar invitation, a post-webinar replay, downsell, or flash sale.
To be clear, these aren’t those sketchy and lifeless “swipe and deploy” templates you may have seen swimming around the shadier parts of the online marketing cesspool.
These are loose, flexible templates that guide you through deep-dive masterclasses teaching you the advanced psychology behind each one.
Meaning, you actually understand WHY they work, and are fully empowered to engineer them to best serve your audience.

Program #5

Minimum Viable Launch 2.0

(to quickly rock profitable and lean email launches)
We’ve taken the single most impactful part of 10x Launches; the part that countless students have credited with producing game-changing ROI in record time…
And given it a fresh-for-2022 facelift.
Not only will you be getting access to a stack of NEW templates that we’ve added to the stack based on repeated tests and real-world results.
But we’ll be offering you the one-click automation uploads to bring the whole sequence straight into your ActiveCampaign to save you and your team about 5+ hours of heavy-duty integration time.

Program #6

Application Funnel Amplifiers

(for creating powerful pre-call enrollment experiences)
Fact: The enrollment experience begins the moment your prospect books a call.
If you mail it in for those 12-72 hours between when they book the call — and show up to it, you’re missing a golden opportunity to begin coaching the necessary transformations.
In this brand new program, you’ll learn how we to consciously engineering your entire application experience to pre-empt objections, create magnetism, and stack the odds in favor of having a successful enrollment conversation
You’ll get practical answers to:
  • When you should be transparent about your pricing BEFORE a sales call
  • How to strategically structure your application questions in a way that actually coaches your pre-customer into your program (yes, the questions are copy)
  • What to put on your booking confirmation page to create incredible momentum and a “point of no return” into your program
  • What tools and systems we use to create a seamless application and booking experience

Program #7

Next-Level Automation & Optimization Stack

(upcoming and ongoing automation tutorials)
As the CTC Membership evolves, our resident Wizard, Philip Powis will be actively adding a library of importable one-click automations (into ActiveCampaign), leveraged software playbooks, and a running list of the most advanced (and cost effective) tools and systems that he recommends for fast-scaling course and coaching businesses.

2023.06.09 15:51 cottageclaw Travelling with friends as an autistic person?

Hi there! I love to travel, but I typically travel solo partly because it’s way less mentally taxing than travelling with other people and having to mask to maintain conversations, navigate other people’s needs, etc.
However, I’ll soon be travelling in India with 3 friends - we’ll be taking a road trip and there’ll be limited opportunities for solo recharge time.
I know from previous experience that after a few hours of socialising, I shut down, become irritable, and am generally not great company. But I really want to have a good time on this trip, and I don’t want to make my friends uncomfortable.
Does anyone have advice on how to navigate this / have an enjoyable trip with my friends?

2023.06.09 15:51 Late_Violinist6815 40yo rookie 6 months in..

40yo rookie 6 months in..
I got into hvac by happenstance over the winter. I had recently left working for tier 1 auto parts manufacturer doing tool inspection and gage repair for nearly 15 years. I have small children and working 6-7 days a week second and third shift just wasn’t working for me anymore. Well my rental house furnace blower was acting up and it had been replaced less than a year ago. I knew the guy who I had do the work before through a friend. So he sends out his apprentice to replace it and while I’m chatting with him he informs me that it was his last day and that he had just got his degree in logistics and was moving on. I called up his boss man and asked to take his spot. Citing some of my skills and capabilities in learning the trade. I started the next Monday and I’ve really enjoyed most of it so far. It’s just the two of us. Boss man is 10 years my junior and I think that dynamic of him having the skill, knowledge and eagerness to help and teach while also working hard as the young guy he is with the life experience and knowledge I bring seems to work really well for us when coming up with solutions to problems and overall just working together. He gets a lot of really good work. He’s in with the lake community so we’re on all the new builds and servicing all these rich people. We do some smaller commercial stuff. A few restaurants and gyms. Set a few roof tops and such. I feel like because it’s just the two of us I do get exposed to alot of different things. I feel like I’ve been wildly lucky most of the time with service calls because often it’s the first time I’m encountering the issue, but somehow I always figure it out. Its a good feeling when that unit fires up after not 100% knowing if your diagnosis was right. I do enjoy when a customer is fully expecting to have to replace their equipment and when you walk out 30 minutes later, everything is running and they are so happy to be paying that $400 they tip you $100. Anyhow got sent out to do 90% of an install on my own the other day. Did everything but braze and charge the system. (Just haven’t learned those yet) House didn’t have ac prior so new circuit and all. Anyhow I’m really liking the work. But unfortunately I’m often not getting 40 hours. I get extra for service calls which is nice and makes up the difference sometimes. But as of now I’m at $20/hr and no sort of benefits. I felt it acceptable when I started as I knew little. Like I said I have kids and a family to support and I’m needing more. I’d really hate to jump ship and go to another company. Has to be a dozen I could count off the top of my head. But I almost feel like by this time next year I could be leading installs with my own helper and potentially work it out to make some good money. I love the area we work in and our clientele are great. I meet some really awesome people on the lake and even had my son with me on a call after picking him up from school last week. The lady took him down to the lake and played with him while I diagnosed and replace a capacitor. It’s those kind of days that keep me here over looking elsewhere. So I’m trying to do my best to make myself valuable enough to ask for more. I really don’t know what the pay is like for my position anywhere else. But I’m feeling like $25 isn’t to much to ask for. Especially once I learn the refrigerant side of things. For reference I’m in Michigan servicing the Fenton/Grand Blanc area primarily. Just south of Flint. I guess just looking for a little advice. I’ve considered doing the hvac bootcamp class and get my epa cert. it’s like $1500 but I know some local companies hire guys and pay for that class for them. What would you guys do? Stick it out with the smaller guy and try to grow with or jump ship for more stability and benefits?

2023.06.09 15:51 risabh07 Ethereum App Development - Your Comprehensive Guide

Are you ready to tap into the potential of Ethereum app development? Building decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain opens up a world of possibilities for developers and entrepreneurs alike. But as with any emerging technology, questions abound. Fear not! In this engaging FAQ, we'll address some of the most common queries surrounding Ethereum app development, shedding light on the process, benefits, challenges, and everything in between.
What is Ethereum, and why is it popular for app development?
Ethereum is an open-source blockchain platform that enables developers to build decentralized applications (DApps) and execute smart contracts. Its popularity stems from its robustness, flexibility, and large developer community, making it the go-to platform for blockchain-based app development.
How does Ethereum app development differ from traditional app development?
Unlike traditional app development, Ethereum app development leverages blockchain technology and smart contracts to create decentralized, trustless, and tamper-proof applications. These apps remove the need for intermediaries, enhance security, and enable transparent, peer-to-peer interactions.
What programming languages are used for Ethereum app development?
The primary language used for Ethereum app development is Solidity, a high-level language specifically designed for smart contract development. Solidity is similar to JavaScript and is well-documented, making it accessible to developers of varying skill levels. Other languages like Vyper and Rust are also gaining traction.
What are the benefits of Ethereum app development?
Ethereum app development offers numerous advantages, including:
  1. Decentralization: Eliminating intermediaries and enabling direct peer-to-peer interactions.
  2. Transparency: All transactions and smart contract code are publicly verifiable on the blockchain.
  3. Security: Ethereum's consensus mechanism and cryptographic features enhance application security.
  4. Interoperability: Ethereum's open standards and compatibility foster collaboration among different applications.
What are the challenges of Ethereum app development?
While Ethereum provides a powerful platform for app development, it does come with some challenges, such as:
Scalability: Ethereum's current design faces scalability limitations, leading to high transaction fees and slower processing times. However, various scaling solutions, like Ethereum 2.0 and layer 2 protocols, are being developed to address these issues.
How can I ensure the security of my Ethereum app?
To enhance the security of your Ethereum app, consider the following measures:
  1. Smart contract audits: Conduct thorough audits of your smart contracts by reputable firms to identify vulnerabilities.
  2. Code best practices: Follow secure coding practices, such as input validation and proper handling of user permissions.
  3. Testing and debugging: Rigorously test your app's functionality and conduct comprehensive debugging to address any vulnerabilities.
Can I monetize my Ethereum app?
Yes, you can monetize your Ethereum app through various means, including:
  1. Charging fees: You can charge users a fee for utilizing specific features or services within your app.
  2. Tokenization: Create and distribute your app's native tokens, allowing users to purchase or trade them.
  3. Crowdfunding: Conduct a token sale or crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for your app's development.

2023.06.09 15:50 milzy33 A Few Thoughts/Questions After My First Week

So I’ve started driving to supplement the money that I don’t make as a musician, and obviously I would like to use the app as effectively as I can.
Does anyone have any insight on streaks, as I can drive for hours and hours accepting every ride I get within 15min of the last and as far as I can tell I haven’t gotten any sort of streak. What does it have to do with driving busy hours? From my experience in the last week, those seem to be the absolute worst hours to drive because I get short rides with low fares that take forever because of traffic. I’ve had a much better times driving during the mid-late morning.
Also, and I may just need to get used to the way the info is displayed, the app doesn’t seem to make it easy to quickly decipher very much detail about the ride that it is going to automatically accept for you. Is there a way to turn that off?
Other thing: I picked up a lady with a cart full of groceries, which I loaded because she was in no hurry to do so. We nearly got to her house when she added a stop at Walgreen’s, where she took a good long while (Lyft told me to wait for 5min). I wasn’t going to leave her there to go get another ride, as my car was full of her groceries and I like to think I’m not a monster. But anyway, we get back to her house where now I must unload the groceries because she was on the phone… oh, and in case this wasn’t obvious— no tip.
Do any of you more experienced folk have any advice?

2023.06.09 15:50 salthin MEMORY RECORD - When Good Men Go To War

I hope you all enjoy this one! Got a lot of these hanging around in my writing folder ready to be proofread and published.
The following record has been altered for mortal consumption.
General Richard sighed deeply as he sat in the council chamber. This was all too much. He could see the Xol representative across the chamber, talking in hushed tones with another Xol. Ashley sat beside him, arms crossed. After everything he'd heard about her, she seemed a normal person, even if she was a bit awkward. Her umbra was tight against her skin, and almost translucent. He knew from her tutoring that it's weakness was a trick.
Silva Wrassack, a Sage of Law, sat to his right. Her face was impartial, as always.
Soon, all of the representatives arrived.
"Attention all sapient races." A voice called out. "We are gathered here today to address a grievance by the United Republic of Terra, against the Xol Khanate."
Richard straightened his tie.
"The Council held a remote motion to hear the grievance, and the motion was accepted. Representative from the United Republic of Terra, you have the floor."
General Richard cleared his throat, and then spoke. "Peoples of the council, I am General Richard Hammond. With me is Ashley, the Apostle of our home star, Sol, and a Sage of Law, Silva Wrassack."
Murmurs ran through the chamber. God, Richard hated talking in front of politicians.
"Before I voice the Republic's grievance, I would like to extend a hand of friendship and peace to those around us. I am a General, indeed, but in Human culture, if there is peace, I am doing my job correctly. For background to those of you who who do not know of the Republic, we are a republican representative-democracy of Humans. Humans are a bipedal, warm-blooded, hunter-scavenger, omnivorous mammal species. We typically make decisions based on both emotion and logic. Humans have a lifespan of 110-130 years with our current medical technology, and we reach adulthood by approximately age 17, and reach full maturity at approximately age 26. We sometimes alter our bodies with cybernetics, but typically only for increased access to information and to enhance our social opportunities."
He saw nods and more murmurs across the chamber.
"Sadly, the Republic is here as a matter of conflict. We are here to file a grievance against the Xol Khanate." He gestured to Silva for her to continue. Better to let the Lawyer do her job.
Silva spoke up. "We accuse the Xol Khanate of the enslavement of our sovereign citizens, and the occupation of Pre-FTL Republic-colonized systems. We demand our systems be left, and our people freed and returned to us. We are open to negotiation, but our demand of our people's freedom is nonnegotiable."
The murmuring turned into a cacophony.
The arbiter managed to calm things down for the moment.
"Representative Jir'lan of the Xol Khanate, the integrity of the Xol Khanate has been questioned. The United Republic of Terra claims you have claimed their citizens as part of your workforce. What say you against this claim?"
The Xol representative, apparently named Jir'lan, spoke after a moment. "It surprises the Xol Kahnate that the United Republic of Terra exists in the first place. Our contracted workforces are second to none in the galaxy, as most of you know, and were any humans to be among them, they would be the rightful residential contracted workers of the Xol Khanate, and would not be citizens of this Terran Republic. How a human would end up outside of an FTL-isolated system is beyond me. I motion to table this discussion, and move on to more important matters."
The arbiter let out noise of boredom. "Motion to table, any objections?"
Sage Silva raised her hand. "We have an objection. How may I address you, arbiter?"
"Your objection is heard. You may address me as simply Arbiter."
"Understood, Arbiter. Our objection is as follows: when the human race finally united as one nation more than two thousand years ago, we sent out generation ships as an act of unity. The residents of those ships were Republic citizens, as were their children, and their children's children, and so on. When they arrived at their destination systems, those systems and the colonized planets became Republic territory. At the time, we did not know of the sapience of stars, but those stars would today be allowed to become Republic citizens themselves, or negotiate terms for colonization."
"Objection heard. For clarification, please define the function of a generation ship."
"Oh, I see." Silva said. Richard was surprised the concept was foreign. Silva continued. "A generation ship is a type of exploration and colonization vessel that travels at sublight relativistic speeds. As per the name, the crew of the ship is a pre-designed and regulated society that lives and dies aboard the ship, until it reaches it's destination system."
Murmurs began to echo as the sage explained the concept. Was it really that crazy?
"Understood. Any responses to the objection?" The Arbiter spoke. A distant hand was raised.
"Representative Glagnon of the Firma Federation, what is your response?"
The gruff looking alien spoke up. "How many of these generation ships have you fielded?"
Silva nodded as the arbiter gestured to her to respond. "Thirteen. Each vessel holds approximately 1.2 million people."
"Response heard. Any other responses?"
Another alien spoke. "What is the United Republic of Terra's policies on indentured servitude?"
Silva cleared her throat. "In the Terran Republic, Involuntary servitude under any circumstances, by any means of coercion, is illegal and will result in life imprisonment and the dissolution of any organized group or corporation found culpable by a random jury of their peers and a Judge."
The murmurs rebounded as Silva explained. Richard didn't have much hope for this dialogue anymore. It was clear that slavery was commonplace.
"For the record, extreme cases of systematic exploitation can result in a death penalty."
"Outrageous!" An alien shouted. The murmurs turned into roars.
"SILENCE!" The Arbiter declared. "Order shall return to this chamber. Are there any objections to the objection raised by the United Republic?"
Jir'lan spoke. "The Xol Khanate objects. Any humans or generation ships which have entered territory are ours by right of appropriation under Article 76392-Kit."
"Objection, Arbiter." Silva said, "The Terran Rep-"
"Silence. Provisional Attendees of this council are only allotted one objection for every motion. Speak again and you will be arrested for contempt."
Richard could barely hold in his rage. What kind of council was this?
"Any objections?" The Arbiter asked the chamber. Silence rang.
"Objection resolved. The motion to table this discussion passes, and the motion to question integrity fails."
Richard sighed. Of course it would come to this. He then heard a message in his communicator. The Central Congress just voted. He took a deep breath.
"Arbiter, I wish to comment."
"Granted, though no new objections are allowed."
"Of course, Arbiter." Richard said, a shiver running down his back in disgust. "Members of this council. I want to reiterate the Terran Republic's extended hand of friendship. However, it disappoints me greatly that this galactic council of supposedly intelligent beings refuse to do anything about this injustice. Our citizens and systems have been taken from under our nose by a law that we never agreed to follow, nor that we knew existed. I have been in contact with the Central Congress of the United Republic of Terra during this discussion. Fourty-Eight seconds ago, in a monumental unanimous decision, all 18019 members of the Central Congress, under guidance of the Grand Council of Sages, voted to declare a war of liberation on the Xol Khanate. "
Roars filled the chamber. The face of Jir'lan turned from surprise to both anger and humor. The sly shithead thought this was funny!
"SILENCE." The arbiter thundered, bringing the wining to an end. "A motion to declare war under the galactic rules of conflict has been raised."
Richard couldn't hold himself in. He laughed.
"You misunderstand, arbiter. There is no motion. We are not asking for approval. We will not be pushed around by the hubris of this council who thinks themselves better than their peers, and thinks the rights of individuals are an afterthought. We will follow our own rules of conflict, which we will deliver to this council and the Xol Khanate momentarily." he said. "We will take our leave. After all, I am a general. It is time to do my job. To the Xol Khanate, we heavily recommend you start removing your non-military population from your military centers and emplacements. We do not like killing civilians."
The door behind Richard locked.
"You will not leave. It is not our hubris, but yours, to presume this is your decision, or that you are equal to anyone else. Speak again and you will be detained." The arbiter said.
Ashley stood up, and spoken for the first time. "Respectfully, Arbiter, you can go chuck yourself, your mate, your extended family, and your firstborn in an incinerator."
Outrage ran through the council chambers, the Arbiter's face twisted to disgust and anger. Ashley turned to the locked door. Richard saw Ashley's umbra flared up in a rainbow of colored tentacles, and the door simply crumpled. His umbra control couldn't compare, even though Sol and Ashley had been directly tutoring him for weeks now.
"Security, detain them." The arbiter spoke.
Richard opened his briefcase. He flipped open the hidden panel and pulled out his issued PDW. Ashley took a deep breath.
They bolted down the hallway. Armored aliens rounded the corner and held out weapons.
"Let us pass if you value your lives. We have no quarrel with you. Raise your graspers above your head and drop your weapons." Richard said, pointing his weapon back. "Don't make me do this."
The guards took a step forward.
Richard opened fire, the bullets cracking the air. Two guards fell, and one more stumbled. Their shiny armor was cracked and split, a single hole in each. Not designed against kinetics, he guessed. He turned his gun on the remaining guards, but a flare of burning light filled his vision before he could do much else.
The rest of the guards became charred husks on the ground. Ashley's eyes burned with an orange light, the wispy flame in her hand dying out. She held the hand out, and Richard took it.
He spoke into his communicator. "Detonate the ship, according to plan A2." He heard a distant rumble as the plastic explosives vaporized any hint of Terran data or technology.
Ashley pulled him close, then her umbra yanked them through the metal corridors. They shot through the hallways towards the emergency exits.
"Gonna be a rough ride home, General." She said as the white, gold, and chrome hallways sped past them.
"That's fine. Always wanted to see those floes and swells you keep talking about with my own eyes, anyway."

2023.06.09 15:50 NJmade2001 Hilarious story

Yesterday, smoked my buddy up (upon his request) for his second time, apparently the first time he didnt get high, but this time I definitely got him there. Approximately 3 minutes after bong rips, he suddenly turns to his left, grabs his oreo pop tart and proceeds to use it as a flashlight because it “got dark” and when he realized it crushed in his hands he blurts out “this flashlight is suuuuuuper flammable………… call the IRS.” By far the funniest quote from a stoned friend. What about you?

2023.06.09 15:50 Antique_Ad4243 After 4 years of gaslighting, i finally have my diagnosis.

I've been a long time lurker and reading advice from everyone who posts here and i thought i would share my experiences or trying to get a diagnosis for ADD/ADHD.
After 4 years of gaslighting while in the military saying that i dont have ADD because i wasnt diagnosed as a kid or that my struggles with depression were fine. Another thing my therapist saod was i need to find something that motives me, without getting burnout. I have never been able to find something without getting burnout, the longest I lasted was around 6 months. I noticed i started getting anxiety and having panic attacks at work and being more depressed then usual thats when I drew the final straw.I made a appoint to be seen and then I finally recieved my diagnosis. He asked me a couple questions, did a blood draw for dopamine. Saw my education records both high school and college, and came to the conclusion that i have inattentive ADD.
I recently started Adderall and the first time i took it i literally cried. I could think of a task and do it without hesitating. I did my dishes that i havent done in weeks and had ants crawling around. I paid off a fine for water sewage treatment bill that i haven't paid in over 6 months. I have already noticed a difference in my mood and no longer sad or depressed for no reason. I have another appointment in the coming weeks to talk about dosages and what would to right for me.
This all comes down to is that its possible to find a doctor who will actually listen to you and validate your concerns.
I hope this helps someone. If you need the help, seek it. Itll change your life.

2023.06.09 15:49 arby1989 Just venting

We’ve been trying with help from fertility doc since March. This was our first medicated cycle with letrozole and ovidrel. Trigger shot on May 26th with 4 days of timed intercourse (May 26-29). Progesterone levels taken a week later (last Friday) and came back at 14.4.
Was told I could start testing today and it came back negative. 😫 doc told me to keep testing until I get my period but I’m so bummed I don’t even want to test again this cycle! Going to try IUI next round if timing lines up with a work trip I can’t skip. 🤞🏼 thanks for listening!

2023.06.09 15:49 thromeawai WH hung up on “What If”

Seems we have taken baby steps to moving towards reconciliation since my last post. My WH set hard boundaries with his co-worker AP and said that he wanted to focus on rebuilding his marriage and she promised him that she’d respect his choice of no contact. After about a week and a half she sought out a conversation to check in on him and asked him how things were going between him and I. He just said he was still working on things and thanked her for giving him space to do so. She told him that her own marriage was completely over and that she missed him.
Before this conversation with AP, me and WH have had some incredibly productive discussions that ultimately led to a series of blissful days together where things felt “normal” for the first time in a long time. He even said that he couldn’t believe he was about to ruin such a good relationship with me. He thanked me for being so forgiving and supporting him – that he knows my reaction to his affair is rare and he is happy he gets a chance to save our marriage. He promised to put action into rebuilding my trust and basically told me everything that I had wanted to hear. It felt amazing to have him “back”. I told him that I had no doubt we could build an even better marriage a second time around and he agreed and was excited knowing that he didn’t “damage” me beyond repair.
But after the talk with AP he’s been distant. I spoke with him last night and he says he still feels like that will always be a huge “what if” if he doesn’t pursue a relationship with AP. He says if he broke his morals and has such deep feelings for her then there must be something real behind that. He still refuses to do IC or any other self-help beyond occasional introspection. He says he doesn’t want “outside influence” from friends or a therapist. I feel like I act as his therapist most of the time. I moved through my own grieving process after finding out that he told her they loved each other. After intense IC for myself I am most comfortable just continuing to show him love and forgiveness because ultimately – I want to support him and see him live a life that he is proud of and free of guilt and shame. Grey-rocking and 180 made things worse in the beginning.
He is becoming increasingly more depressed knowing that his choice will effect multiple people, someone is going to get hurt in the end. It’s painful to know that a two month EA and an 11 year relationship with a home and child bare the same weight to him. I don’t want to make his life more miserable than it already is or push him so hard to resentment. The affair fog is so heavy and he is willing to overlook so much of AP because he feels like it’s special. He said he overheard a conversation out at lunch the other day where a man was talking about this guy he knew that was a “piece of shit that cheated on his wife” and that really hurt him to hear that people were going to see him as this horrible person. I just told him, “Well, you made that choice and if you want to leave me for AP you need to be comfortable knowing that people think you’re a bad person and own up to it. Don’t lie to people and tell them we ‘grew apart’ because we didn’t.”
He knows I will be in his life forever no matter what he decides to do because of our child. I said that while I can be gentle and patient now, I don’t have the capacity to be the same if he left me. I know him better than anyone else and I pray that if he leaves me for AP it works out because if it doesn’t he will have no one to turn to for emotional support. He doesn’t know AP well enough to know what she’s like angry, stressed, or upset. Will he be able to support AP if she is insecure about their relationship? Will he find the same support in her as me?

What You Get:


Time and time again, we see the evils of “victimless crimes” rearing their ugly head into the daily lives of Americans. These crimes have no party which has been injured: speeding tickets, red light tickets, stop sign tickets, seat belt tickets, possession tickets and more!
These “crimes” have hurt no one, but merely have the semblance of injury due to statutory laws. This leads to Here’s a ticket for $300 because you ran a stop sign at 4 A.M. even though nobody was around [except the officer to ticket you].”
When we think back to the earliest days of laws and judges, you will realize court is really meant for (and only for) a tort; a wrongful act to a person or their property; or an infringement of a human right (other than under contract).
If you broke the Golden Rule: Do No Harm to Person or Their Property – then there should be civil liability and legal consequences. However, if the age of corporations and propaganda (marketing), it seems We The People have lost our way (and rights). Sovereignty is not held by title, but is found in the mind. If the mind is given up, eventually an evil will rise to deceive the people into slavery by consent!
Without writing a thesis on those “lost in corporate America”, suffice it to say that everything “LAW” and “LAW ENFORCEMENT” is set up for revenue generation in this great land. Nothing more, nothing less!

2023.06.09 15:49 InternationalArcher7 GroupME help

Ok, sorry for the long message, but idk what is going on and am trying to give as much detail as possible. So, I recently got a summer job and they apparently use GroupME for all their correspondence with employees. At first I was like, what is that? I've never heard of it. I gave my phone number to my boss and he said he'd add me. I expected a sms or something inviting me to join and nothing. I ended up missing 2 trainings because I didn't get the messages about them. I gave them my number again to double check. I downloaded the app and it said there was an account with this number already (I've had this number since 2000/2001, so no one ever had it but me). It gave me part of the email address and I recognized it to be a business email (@businessname.us) from a job I worked from 2014-2018. I was not aware we had an email (although I'm trying to remember if they mentioned making one on my behalf) and never used it.I don't even know the password to the email. I also don't ever remember using Groupme. When I tried to sign up, it said this number already has an account connected to it. I immediately clicked this is not me since I didn't immediately recognize the email address. It wasn't until after I clicked this is not me that I mentally registered that the email had an old employers abbreviation. It let me sign up but it was a fight because I would sign up and immediately get an email saying my account was deleted. It took a few times, but finally it stayed active. My correct phone number and email is on the account now. However, I am not getting any of the employee messages. It is negatively impacting my employment because I am missing everything and I'm worried I'm going to get fired because of it. I emailed the boss and was like hey is there anything I need to know for this week and she was like we use GroupME for employee messages, download the app. I have it's not working! Which, I mentioned in a previous email. I am so frustrated at this point. Can anyone offer a suggestion? I have an email into support, but haven't heard anything from them yet.

2023.06.09 15:49 smudgedsoul Telling friends about my mental health w/o them asking?

I've relocated overseas and after ~7 years here I'm still spending my life alone most of the time as my depression has pretty much made me withdraw from everything social.
I don't have anyone to talk to about my daily life/mental health struggles etc. My closer friends are all back home.
So I'm going to start my TMS sessions for the depression and just want to talk/let someone know about it but it feels attention seeking to be telling my friends back home when no one has actually checked in/chatted with me recently. Everyone's busy with their own lives..
If you were in my shoes, would you share with them your happenings out of the blue? Another concern is that everyone has their own issues in life and I don't wanna feel like bothering them with mine..
Thanks for reading
