2023.06.11 00:09 LeonJiangx What hardware do you use?

Hello there,
I'm a maker who often uses 3D printing to make electronics and robotics projects. I have a small selection of M3 machine screws (I seldom use piercing screws) and heat inserts because I find it to be a versatile size for my projects (usually not very big).
I want to build up a selection of bearings for robotics projects, but don't know where to start. Large thin wall bearings can be used in small projects, and small bearings can also be useful in large projects. There are tons of different sizes of bearings on Aliexpress, I don't know where to start. Are there some "common" bearing sizes among the maker community or does everyone just design around whatever hardware that they have? I found that 608 bearings are common on Thingiverse, maybe it's because it's used in skateboards?
What selection of hardware do you have? Do you buy hardware specifically for a project or do you make projects based on your current selection? What hardware sizes would you recommend to start with?
Any advice is appreciated, Happy making!

2023.06.11 00:09 tj4s 6th Gen customization possible?

Tl;dr - looking for a way to lock ONLY the apps I choose, how can I do it in under 20min and <$50
I've got a 6th Gen running 16.5, It's only used for 3 apps, one game for my daughter(connects to a toy, not on Android) and 2 for work. I'm trying to not hate apple here but there are no options to change anything without a separate paid app for each. Keyboards(default or swiftkey) are not resizable. I cannot lock access to settings, the apple store and work app without locking everything. Forget about the saved password that stopped working and apple isn't letting me change.
On windows and Android none of this is an issue except I'll need to give up an app I use alot.

2023.06.11 00:09 encrsrp type me post!! pls help :(

(i got tired of answering at some point and i think you can notice that, so sorry if my tone suddenly changes shsk, i didn’t answer in order so the ones written clearly more hastily are the ones i wrote after have got tired lol)
I tried to type myself multiple times but i always reconsider it… so i’ll try to answer the questions and drop some test results i got :) + english isn’t my native language so im sorry for eventual mistakes in my writing!!
• How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself.
I’m 21 and i’m a female (trying to better understand if a feel comfortable identifying myself as genderfluid/bigender), i’m neurodivergent (adhd+autism+giftedness) and that has often made difficult to type myself. I’m really energetic and i like doing stuff, in the meaning that i hate stay sitting still and i always need stimuli both it is mental or physical. Even when i am w others, i need to do things w them, not just talk about things, unless we talk about smth i really like (which are usually relate to things I’ve to explain somehow) , but still i prefer do it while doing smth like drawing or walking. ‘Bout that I can say I really like doing activities w people especially when I am in charge, meaning that I like to decide what to do and so I usually prefer the company of ppl who are more kinda followers (but I won’t, for eg, chose an activity if I know the person I’m with doesn’t like it or doesn’t wanna do it, I’d probably try to convince them somehow - I also could be manipulative sometimes- but I’d still respect their decision at the end, I could be upset by that tho, it depends on how much I wanted to do that activity and the reason behind the “no”, but I’d not show it and try to be the more comprensive I can be, it really depends on the situation and the person tho. Also if it can counts to better understand my type, I didn’t like this question lol, bc its so general “general description of yourself”, in which sense help, what is ‘general’ abt a person to you, I’d end up writing everything just in this answer (that’s why I’m gonna stop myself here btw).
• Is there a medical diagnosis that may impact your mental stability somehow? A part for being neurodivergent i struggled in my teen years with some ‘issues’ and even if i’ve never had a diagnosis (except for an ed’s one) i’m pretty sure i went through some pathological behaviour (therapists have mentioned histrionic behaviour at first and then covert narcissistic one), now i’m feeling so much better but i think that period had a big impact on my personality and behaviour causing me to be more insecure abt other opinions (which wasn’t a real worry before, not that much) and to be afraid of being a bad person or coming back to the person i was at the time.
• Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it? I grew up basically by myself, considering that my parents have always been very neglective and distant to me and my needs, they’ve always done the minimum til i became able to do thing on my own (eg. they cooked for me til i went grown enough to do it by myself - i was 12 - and never done that again), so i’ve always been really independent and this helped me being really open-minded but also made me difficult to develope opinions/judgment, cause i haven’t had any type of influence, i started to cope this by reading and attach to fictional characters, that are still now the ones who help me grow a more coherent personality ig, if it makes sense, also by analysing their psychology as i said and understand them i’m able to explain what i think and also better understand myself and others. Basically I could say I’m very opinionated, but especially now that I fear being offensive/bad person, I tend to keep all to myself also bc I’m scared of seem incoherent since if I hear or read different perspectives abt smth which I’ve already an opinion of I can completely change my view, even if I would’ve defend that opinion w my life, which makes me feel so ashamed somehow either bc even if I hide it I hate losing arguments or being wrong in general (if this happens during an argument - I can’t help but would do anything to win it-) and bc as I said I don’t wanna ppl say /think I’m incoherent or whatever.
• What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not? I work in a supermarket atm and my occupation is to supply the markets shelves with products, i really like it cause it keeps me active and also i have to organise things, which i love (much more if it’s a practical type of organisation, I like organise and categorise objects, things I can see and touch, not ideas, If I have to deal w them I need to write them down or visualise them somehow to have the same satisfaction). Tho, in september i’ll start a performative arts academy (singing, acting and dancing), performative arts are one of the things i love more in the world, i never get bored while practicing them (i HATE boredom). Here I think it’s worth to say that my favourite type of dance is ballet bc I have to keep my body in control, it’s impossible to explain how good I feel when I do that, pay attention to every part of my body and feel the sensation of control. + I think it’s also important to say that i usually learn by seeing, in general i prefer seeing videos ora images, or even better doing what i’m learning, but i noticed that if i just watch someone dance (for eg) w/out thinking to much about it or focus to much, it’s like my brain registers it and then it’s able to do it three thousand time better then if i would’ve tried to get every particular and overthink abt everything i have to do. While abt acting i feel really comfortable in fakes emotions or situations, i feel A LOT but i don’t like to talk abt my feelings in general ig ?? I tend to bottle everything up, especially negatives emotions and never show them, but when im acting it’s a total different things (maybe bc i know they’re not my own feelings yk, and even if i relate ppl don’t know i relate lol), in this way im also really good at manipulate my own brain in believe what i have to feel and how to act, i’m so good at being manipulative -either w myself and others- even if i try to not do so w ppl (some times i just cant help it tho -I understand when it’s to much and I’ll never doit if i know it can harm in any way), when i was little i used to do it more.
• If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed? I don’t mind being alone, but i surely prefer company, even if we’ve to stay in silence i prefer someone w me, i only like being alone when i need to do smth that need my completely focus (like working ,study etc -when I’m really focused none should dare interrupt me fr). But in general i really feel refreshed and full of life after have spent time w ppl I care of or have done activities in general. Spend to much time alone w/out doing nothing has me kinda depressed and i always need to start doing smth after a while.
• What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities? As i said i love dancing and acting, i like sports (skii and tennis especially), when i was little i used to avoid them tho cause i was afraid to not be able to play well and being made fun of, also I’m very competitive and even if i hide the frustration of losing, it’s really smth that give me nuts. I also love crosswords and sudoku, resolve maths and logical problems or puzzle (i’m really good with problem solving btw, I love solving things and I get so mad when I can’t), board games (my favourite is twister!!), reading (more when i was little, now it depends on if i get attached to the characters) and watching tv series. I also like some videogames like Super Mario’s games or The sims (i’ve always struggled in reading instructions/doing tutorials, i tend to learn while playing since forever and that’s why i avoid games that have a lot of options and instructions) but it’s not my favourite thing, and i find pleasure in drawing and writing too.
• Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be? I think leadership really is my thing, but I’ve a past, already from childhood, made of criticism and ‘have been made fun of’ (my parents first of all) so I tend to avoid it unless I’m sure I’ll be successful and nobody will tell me anything abt my leadership. My style would probably be based on efficiency and have results that are admirable in any sense they could be, idk if its make sense, my brain is melting after writing sm lol, I’d be nice and comprensive as much as I could but depending on what happens, tempistics, etc… I could be really harsh and easily lose temper (only in certain situations tho, I’m trying to say that is an effort I’ve learn to put, to be patient, so it hasn’t always come so natural to me).
• Are you coordinated? Why do you feel as if you are or are not? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form? Describe your activity? As I said I love doing practical things, I love use my hands and I’m really good in handmade stuff. My mom always calls to do those kinda things at home for eg. I’m really coordinated, sometimes I literally get surprised of my reflexes and how much coordinate I can be.
• Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer. I love art, may favourite types of art is the one who involve moving your whole body tho, so dance and acting like I said, bc, like, I love writing and drawing too, but they’re more of a sitting still type of art, so I surely love them but I love dancing and acting more. I like less to watch art, there are lotta paintings I like but its not this big deal, while theatres’ plays for eg are more exciting to me. (Adding that art can be literally everything not only those things but nevermind).
• What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them? I don’t think a lot abt the past honestly, I’m actually a person who move on really fast (I can hold grudges in this sense but this is more abt how I feel abt certain ppl not situations). I like look at the future even if it scares me a bit, but I also love being in the present, I’m usually a person who set goal after goal but especially lately I’m enjoying more being in the present, I mean if I’ve to do a ranking it’d be: present, future, past asjsja.
• How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so? I’m really prone to help others even if sometimes it stress me out and I’ll prefer doing something else, but I do it anyway and I usually that person who try to find solutions that will work and have a result or at least touch a point. But I’m also really goos at empathise, I usually read ppl really well, so I come out as really understanding and in touch w others feelings, adding that I literally neve judge, unless i’m stressed and feel the need to take on someone (I feel guilty when it happens yes but I really can’t help it), ppl often say they feel safe came to me for help or even just vent (I recently learn that some ppl don’t wanna solutions but just need to be listened, so sometimes I just say “is there anything I can do to help you” “I’m sorry you feel this way” and stuff cause apparently otherwise it’s called toxic positivity (?? I don’t remember) and yk that fear abt being a bad person I mentioned? Right, but my thing is pretty much try to solve the problem after have listened the person I’m talking to.
• Do you need logical consistency in your life? I’ve a problem understanding the meaning of logic as a way to valuate situations or whatever mbti theory mean by that, I mean, it’s like “making sense” right? Cause every time I read abt mbti there is logic and moral and honestly I can’t tell the difference bc it literally depends by situations?? Or maybe I’m just stupid and got nothing, but what is logical consistency, bc when w talk about things relate to logic in a sense that isn’t logical-maths problems, my answer is always ‘it depends’, so I think my answer to this question is still ‘it depends’. Dunno really maybe I’m stupid but…
• How important is efficiency and productivity to you? It’s important. It just is, there isn’t a lot to explain here. I’m not always the most productive person, I’m adhd, sometimes it’s really hard to find the motivation to start doing things, but when I start them I need to be not only efficient but also the best, so obviously I need that efficiency and productivity to be really efficient and productive yk
• Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that? I think I do both directly and indirectly, as I said I like being in control and even more I hate being controlled so… I’ve already mention manipulation, which is one of the way I use to control others ig, I think I’m not aware of other mechanisms I use to do so but I’m surely a controlling person, this was clearer when I was younger, I was a total bossy little kid, now I softened a lot, so, if I am controlling, I am in a way more healthy way, if it exists, idk it seems like I’m a monster but I swear I can be a really nice person help ashsasjah
• What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses? I’ve already touched this topic so I’m gonna be short: I learn the best by doing, so physical senses are my must, I absolutely don’t like learn by just reading lot of informations put in written words, so if I have to learn by books I’m better if there are images or schemes, video are surely more appreciated and the worst is learn by just listening to someone, w/out any other supply , like no I just can’t.
• How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go? I’ve good strategy skills I think and I’m even more good to break up projects into manageable tasks, so yes, its smth that really comes natural to me and I really enjoying do. Sometimes it can absorb my energy honestly, I really feel that, but I love planning and find solutions. I’m not bad in wing projects and improvise tho, I think it depends on tasks??
• What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally? I just wanna be happy, enjoy life, try lotta things ad have lotta experiences, met ppl and bound w them, sharing quality time, love and being loved, this kind of thing, I’d say I’d really love to achieve big things and be successful honestly, but what counts more it’s just living life ig (have both would be the perfection obviuosly)
• What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why? There are really a lot of questions omg, well I hate being controlled and fear lose control, I’m uncomfortable in sharing my feelings cause I hate being seen as weak or vulnerable, I can’t stand being made fun of, even if its just a joke, bc I hate the feeling of shameless I feel, I kinda need to be admired and give a good impression so when someone joke abt thing I do/say I get upset (hide it) unless I’m the first to do irony abt myself. I also hate being wrong and when ppl don’t listen to me, or when I have to repeat myself many times (I got tired of answering I’m sure it can be seen lol, it’s 11 pm here btw..)
• What do the "highs" in your life look like? I act so excited and I feel like I literally could do anything, I get so hyper motivated that I could accomplish all the thing I planned to accomplish and even more in a day.
• What do the "lows" in your life look like? The opposite, I feel unmotivated and could stay at bed all the day, also when I’m not at my best I tend to be really harsh on ppl close to me, like my brother for eg, I take everything on him and its like I can’t help but make him feel bad on propose sometimes (?), saying things I know will hurt him or annoy him (?), idk, I’m this honest just bc I really want to find out my real mbti, but yes when I have lows I tend to be an a**hole :((((
• How attached are you to reality? Do you daydream often, or do you pay attention to what's around you? If you do daydream, are you aware of your surroundings while you do so? I daydream but not that much at the end, I’m surely aware of my surroundings while doing so, I think I use daydream as a way to get motivated but I’m not so lost in my head when it happens.
• How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it? It depends, there was a period during my teen years where I used to make a lot of impulsive decisions, now I try to think more before acting, but I still think I’m more prone to follow my gut. It’s an hard question to answer to cause its a thing that has changed often during my life. I usually can regret a decision but at the end I rarely change my mind while pondering the situation.
• Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why? Yes, almost always, the scenarios are two, or I need the conversation to end so I agree w everything just to close it asap, or it’s just me and my fear of hurt the person I’m talking to, as I mentioned when I was I child I didn’t have this problem and I used to speak my mind during conversation, but now its a hole new story, I only say what I think if we’re really close, the more close the more I speak my truth, indeed I’m the most direct person ever whit my parents and brother.
• Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why? I don’t break rules rules, but when we talk about social norms or way to do things at work etc… I usually find my own way to do them, even when my boss or more high level colleagues tell me tips, or explain how they’ve always done a particular tasks, I find more efficient ways so I can low-key also demonstrate I was right and able to do thing on my own. I don’t directly challenge authorities buy I often find myself thinking they could do better.
ty btw :))

2023.06.11 00:09 SpookyScaryCoochie I 20F feel like I’m accidentally cheating on my friend 22M and my “boyfriend” 23M

I think I’m a cheater but not willingly
Hello, this is my first Reddit and I need really good advice for my situation and I honestly don’t know where to start. I’m going to be using all fake names for this because I feel like the people in this story will somehow connect this situation to me and I’m not good with confrontation.
Anyways, I’m 20yrs F and I am currently and a relationship. I’ve met my boyfriend at work and we’ve talked for a few months before my birthday so when he ask me out I’ve never forgot our anniversary which is coming soon. We could just call him James (23M). James and I have been dating for less than a year but we started off so strong and we know each other so we’ll that it feels like we have already been in a relationship for years. At the time he was living close with his family for family reasons, going to college, and searching for a solid career. I was doing my regular 9-5 type shift so but the other only time I could hang out with him was on the weekends. Unfortunately, he was always busy in the weekends. He would hang out with friends, travel, do family business and gym boy stuff. No matter how much I try to contact him he would either never answer my call or reply to my text. After the first few months of talking he kinda ghosted me but we’re in a relationship. In our span of a year relationship he’s been radio silent for like 9 months out of 12 but every time we start talking again (on his time) we’ve always connected. One night he called me and I thought maybe if I get a personal workout trainer I could workout with my boyfriend and do gym relationship things, but when I suggest getting a trainer her kinda told me I was worthless and a waste of air. He knows I’m self recovering from depression so heading this from not only myself but from a significant other kinda broke me. After that conversation we went radio silent again, and at that point I thought we broke up due to the fact that we never talked and he would always suggest being friends again. So with that being said I grieved and moved on from the relationship. Since I’ve spent less time worrying and thinking about James, I’ve been playing hella video games. I’ve met so many people and I mean SO many people but I kinda got attached to one. We’re gonna call him Tommy (22M). Tommy is the complete opposite of James, he’s sweet to everyone, caring, extremely smart and mentally healthy. I’ve heard surrounding myself around positivity would help me recover depression so I latched on to him pretty quick. At first we were genuinely talking as friends and there was no sign of a relationship, which I liked. But one day we were flirting then that kinda escalated. I’m not gonna get too detailed about that. Recently he told me that he liked me and I get special treatment. Only flaw about Tommy is that he lives in a completely different state. I’ve never done LDR but he has and I have no problem with trusting but he slightly does due to past relationships. I’m planning on visiting him and meeting him in person but here’s where the catch comes in and I feel like an asshole. I’ve devoted my life to being nothing but loyal to my S/O even after break up I’ve promised myself to not bring any toxic trait to my next relationship from my past. James was my first, so I recovered well moving on to Tommy but not so long ago James called me again. We talked for a little bit and I thought we were friends again, but he offered me a ride from work to home so I accepted because y’know catch up time. While we were in the car he played a few romance songs and even sang some to me which was awkward since we haven’t spoken for months. Then we started deep talking. Not only did he graduate from college and I wasn’t invited to the graduation BUT apparently his parent moved back to they’re country and his brother unfortunately offer himself. I’ve never been able to meet his family and he’s always kept me a secret due to the fact that I’m a disappointment to them so it kinda hurt me to know that I never got to even get to know they’re name before moving. I knew about his brother but never got to meet him either so hearing that he’s gone kinda hurt me too. James pretty much told me those were the reasons he ghosted me and honestly it’s understanding, right? The problem is though is that he still thinks we’re in a relationship, which means I’m in a relationship. I’ve been wanting to breakup with him normally a while ago but by just straight up saying “we should see other people” but I thought it was obvious. At the end of the convo he talks about how he wants around 8 kids at his age with me. I’m only 20 and I’ve barely figured out my life so I straight up told him I’m not ready for kids and I don’t even like the little shits for as I’m apart of FTK community. He left by basically saying oh well and went home. How was I supposed to break up with James then though, after saying he basically lost everyone and I’m the only one he has put a lot of pressure on me. At the same time though I really like Tommy and I don’t want to hurt him by having him finding out I’m in a relationship from a random phone call. Or like vice versa. I don’t want to hurt either of them I have a big heart so I genuinely do care for both of their feelings but I feel like a dirty cheater and I don’t know what to do. I need help and really good advice. This situation really fucks with me which is why this might post might be scattered so I will try answering every question you have for me. Please help.

2023.06.11 00:09 No-Trust-7517 Not a bad trip but a very overwhelming one

So about 3 months ago i got really into psychedelics, and because the country i live in has very laxed laws concerning hallucinogens there are several websites and even little cornershops in the open where you can buy psychedelic mushrooms, although online orders are way safer since they don’t require showing your face and taking unnecessary risks.
And this is where my story started, i had saved about 200$ to buy a basically year long supply of magic mushrooms (4oz.) And waited two weeks for them to arrive, and honestly my first experiences were great, i was euphoric during all of them and had little to no side effects due to dehydration.
So being the idiot i was one night, before sleeping i thought it’d be a good idea to try and do some mushrooms just before bed, mind you i had done a lot of research before even ingesting the tiniest amount of psilocybin, so i knew that in general it would take 30min to one hour before i started to notice the effects.
However that night something felt different, i had measured about 3.5g of blue meanies on the scale since they’re aren’t very potent but i felt nothing even tough my tolerance had reseted.
23pm : i decided to get a bit more comfortable, i take my clothes pff and tried meditating a little to appease my little anxiety, but 30 minutes after that i made an incredibly stupid decision that anyone who’s tripped more than 3 times would never do : re dosing
Except this time, i hadn’t even bothered to use a scale, i just eyeballed the amount and basically boofed it but in my mouth. Looking back on it i think i know exactly what was going on, you see during the day before my friend had given me vyvanse, which helped calm me down before a tough national exam
So what i think happened is that since vyvanse is an opioid, it had either delayed or killed the effects even tough there was psilocybin in my system, which meant that as the vyvanse was wearing off i was at my peak of the trip…
So anyways back to the main story
At around midnight, i re dosed once again, and let me tell you what’s about to happen defied my sense of logic for a full 8 hours
The second the mushroom cap went into my stomach, my hands started to get extremely bright and wrinkly, so i decided to go to the bathroom and look at myself and surprise : my face was literally shifting trough time and becoming older and older until the cycle would reverse and I’d start getting younger, which to me was pretty cool, no panicking yet
But after a full minute of just gaping my mouth open in the mirror i was suddenly overtaken by a feeling of love, acceptance and humility, i was having visions in front of my eyes of me and my family and everyone i know hugging each other and telling ourselves that we cared. At this moment i went into my room, and laid down on the floor, i had no time to even think of what was happening but i was quick enough to text one of my friends whom i had tripped before of how much i valued our friendship while barely being able to form coherent sentences (might drop the screenshots)
After talking to my friend i basically closed my phone and sat down, only to be overtaken by a white pure light that irradiated love, and to be honest i thought i was gonna die, and i was ok with it.
After what felt like an eternity of ego death i had woken up, except my mind was split between me and a pair of shoes next to me, i could talk to it telepathically but i don’t really remember our conversation.
After this i looked around my room and literally all of my clothes had crazy Egyptian patterns on them and at this point i literally didn’t know who or what i was, my room became a dark prison and i kept looping trough space time, at some point my body folded onto itself and i lost all sensations keep in mind that i still wasn’t having a bad trip, i was confused but definitely not scared. Anyways i finally break out of this thought prison and went into the kitchen to drink some water, and at this point i also went to take a dump but I’m not sure wether i was hallucinating or actually pooping, anyways i go back to my room and start listening to music, it was so beautiful i cried like a baby, the music had a totally different meaning and the voices and the beats aligned themselves in a different way, and here’s the weirdest and final part of my trip, as im laying down i can’t sleep and i literally look out the window but instead of time stretching like it usually does it was somehow speeding up, the sub rose in about 20 seconds from my perspective, and after that i went to sleep, only to be waken up by my parents asking why i wasn’t at school.
I had taken the mushrooms a Saturday night… so i tripped and watched the sun rise for a full day and a half.

2023.06.11 00:08 d3adpixl Can I use third party parts?

I’m a new player, who is building out my first army. I would like to enter some official tournaments in the future but I was wondering how strict they are with using third party parts. To be clear, all my models are GW, but I do like to get some custom 3d printed heads and shoulder pads. Would I still be able to enter official GW tournaments?

She gets tired quickly when using her whole body when bouncing in cowgirl. But from past experience, women knew how use use their lower half and kind of twerk instead of bounce. I don't know how to explain it to her, she's tried but wondering if there's something I can show her? She's not into porn that much so that's not an option

2023.06.11 00:08 PristineFinish100 How to do automated rollbacks if issues arise?

My experience is in microservice architecture with deployments on kubernetes on a smaller scale with fast forward merging and only one version of a service running. if another version is required, then we will create another service that's versioned so it's two separate service

But on a high volume cluster that's now how things would work. So if you're rolling out a SaaS product and later detect issues, what tools/techniques/strategies can be used to stabilize multiple deployments and versions? Any readings would be great. How would you go about detecting these issues? Liveness/readiness probes are not sufficient

2023.06.11 00:08 snoopykiko Different hair texture or just a head full of split ends? Please help me!

So I’m a guy, and I’ve been growing my hair for around 2 to 3 years with the occasional cut. I was very irregular with getting it trimmed. I think I went a full year without one, and that’s mainly because I never found any professional hairdresser who would cut my hair properly. For example, I asked one for layers and he gave me an undercut from the back. Long hair on guys in my country is very uncommon, so it’s difficult to find someone who truly knows how to do long hair.
But the most important thing I did was to make sure it’s oiled and to put leave in on it and make sure my scalp is healthy. I’ve been doing it for a long time and my hair seemed healthy. I use a product that’s essentially a blend of basically every essential oil as a serum and coconut oil infused leave in conditioner. I don’t use sulfates or silicones on my hair. When I went into this, I did my research and I felt like I knew what I was doing.
I went to a professional hairdresser for the first time ever, and really what I thought was gonna happen was that he was gonna give me a trim and an oil treatment and my hair was gonna come out fantastic. Little did I know what was to come.
He examined my hair, a lot. He ended up telling me that literally all my hair is split ends. He told me I have no healthy hair whatsoever, especially on the top of my head where my scalp is (pictures for reference). I sat there in disbelief and I just asked him twice if he’s sure it’s not just two different hair textures. He said it’s not a curly; every single hair strand is split. None of it is healthy. We ended up trimming more than I wanted and got an conditioning treatment. It seemed okay at first but then my hair dried up into what you see in the pictures above.
Now, I feel like I know my hair more than anyone, but I don’t even know if this is true anymore. I don’t remember a time when my hair looked or didn’t look like this. I thought my hair was healthy.
I feel like I took good care of it even though I didn’t trim it as often as I should’ve. How could it be this unhealthy? So now I’m here asking for a final opinion. Is this a different hair texture or a full-on scalp of split ends? Because this is what is going to determine if I buzz my hair off and start fresh or not.
Thanks for taking time and reading this long-a** story.

2023.06.11 00:07 crunx22 Improper packaging

Could somebody explain to me how Mercari determines improper packaging on damage items when they disqualify you on a return on seller protection? They have not shown me any pictures of how they would know it wasn’t packaged correctly. The seller protection seems kinda scammy to me at this point. I followed how they wanted the item package ( 1-2 inches of bubble wrap, fill empty spaces, use a double box) and it’s still denied? What’s the point of this protection.

2023.06.11 00:07 katrod158 Quant advice

Hi everyone,
I think this is the right spot for this question. I have taken the GRE twice thus far for graduate school, and I just can't get the hang of the GRE quant section. I am a senior STEM major in undergrad and I'm in the middle of submitting graduate school applications (schools require GRE and focus on verbal and quant). I took the GRE once in march without studying and got 147 (27th percentile) and then again in may after completing the magoosh prep course and got a 152 (40th percentile). I am taking it again this coming august and I have been using Gregmat (saw great reviews on reddit), but I feel like my problem does not have to do with the material itself, I think it has to do with my test-taking. I scored pretty well on verbal with 74th percentile, so I don't think it has too much to do with test anxiety, but I don't know what else it could be. I have always been good at math in general and mathematical applications (I have a 4.0 math GPA and a 3.73 science GPA), but for some reason I just can't do well on the GRE quant section. All of my graduate schools give preference to >50 percentile, and I am so nervous this score will cause me to get rejected (its a masters medical program). Anyone have any advice on how I can try and improve? I'll do whatever I have to do, I just do not know what that would be!

2023.06.11 00:07 ItsMistydots How to handle outbursts from teens with autism? Is this a sign of bad parenting?

Hi. I grew up with a higher functioning brother with autism, and now I’m dating someone who has a lower functioning nephew with autism. I feel like I’m now reliving the environment I grew up in, with my brother and parents, when I’m around the nephew and a fight breaks out with the guardians. I feel conflicted on how to perceive things and what should be done.
The story/context (tldr after):
With my brother and parents, fights would always break out between my dad specifically and my brother. It would be screaming matches over a miscommunication or minor disagreements most times. Eventually it would lead to my dad trying to “”subdue”” my brother physically and things getting mildly violent. I’m pretty sure the violence would be started by my dad first. I could be wrong though as I have amnesia of most of my childhood.
What I can recall for certain is situations with my BFs nephew, a fight just happened not minutes ago. Though I don’t have the full context of how it started. The nephew either did something he want supposed to and was throwing a fit about being told not to do it -or- his uncle B (not my boyfriend) teases (antagonizes) the nephew until he freaks out. The latter happens OFTEN. Apparently what happened today once the nephew started freaking out was he assaulted Uncle B (didn’t get details on how specifically), punched the aunt (married to B) in the neck, the aunt proceeded to bite hard into the nephew (???), and it ended when my BF “subdued” the nephew by doing a jiu jitsu technique to get him to stop tussling without hurting him. At the same time my BF calmly talked to him and got him to take deep breaths. Ultimately ending the fight. The aunt threatened to call the cops on the nephew, nephew said he’d call CPS (idk where he even learned that). This also was mirrored a lot in my childhood.
TLDR: BFs nephew, similar to my brother growing up, would have severe outbursts that will lead to violence from them and the person their fighting with. Threats of cops and CPS being called.
My question is how are these outbursts supposed to be handled or even avoided? I disagree with using violence back. Unlike my brother sometimes the nephew will get violent first, like when he gets punished (Switch taken away and such) and he tries to force his way out of it. They (guardians) feel that they have to be violent back in defense/to stop him. But part of me feels like it was negligent parenting that lead to the violence from the nephew in the first place. But I don’t really know.

2023.06.11 00:07 AtoZbodyfitness Debunking the Hype: Why Detox Diets May Not Actually Detoxify Your Body

Detox diets have gained significant popularity in recent years as people seek ways to improve their health and well-being. These diets promise to cleanse the body of toxins, promote weight loss, and provide a quick fix for unhealthy lifestyle habits. However, it is essential to critically examine these claims and separate fact from fiction. In this article, we will explore the truth behind detox diets, debunk common myths, and discuss the importance of natural body cleanse through healthy eating. Let's delve into the world of detoxification and discover what science has to say about it.
Debunking detox diets that don't work
Detox diets are often surrounded by a range of myths that can mislead individuals seeking to improve their health. Let's debunk some of the most common misconceptions associated with detox diets:
Myth 1: Detox diets remove toxins from the body
One prevailing myth is that detox diets effectively remove toxins from the body. However, the truth is that our organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are responsible for eliminating toxins naturally. Detox diets may not significantly enhance this process.
Myth 2: Detox diets lead to significant weight loss
Another popular belief is that detox diets can lead to rapid and substantial weight loss. While it’s true that individuals may experience weight loss during detox diets, it is often due to water loss and calorie restriction rather than the elimination of toxins. Once normal eating resumes, weight tends to return.
Myth 3: Detox diets are a quick fix for unhealthy lifestyle habits
Detox diets are sometimes perceived as a quick fix for poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. However, true health and well-being are achieved through sustainable lifestyle changes, including balanced nutrition, regular exercise, and stress management. Relying solely on detox diets may not address the root causes of unhealthy habits.
It is crucial to approach detox diets with a critical mindset and seek evidence-based information. Expert opinions and scientific studies often refute these detox diet myths, emphasizing the importance of long-term, holistic approaches to well-being.
Remember, when evaluating detox diets, it is essential to consider reliable sources, consult healthcare professionals, and prioritize sustainable lifestyle changes for overall health benefits.
Unveiling the truth about body detoxification
Explanation of the body's natural detoxification process
To understand the limitations of detox diets, it's crucial to comprehend how the body naturally detoxifies itself. Several organs and systems play a vital role in this process:
Role of the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system
The liver is the primary organ responsible for filtering toxins and metabolic waste from the bloodstream. It converts harmful substances into less toxic compounds, which are then eliminated from the body. The kidneys filter waste products and excess fluids, while the lymphatic system helps remove toxins and waste from the body’s tissues.
How the body eliminates toxins naturally
The body eliminates toxins through various processes, including urine, feces, sweat, and exhalation. These natural elimination pathways work in harmony to maintain the body's overall balance and health.
Highlighting the limitations of detox diets in comparison to natural detoxification
Detox diets often claim to enhance the body's natural detoxification process. However, it is important to recognize that the human body is already equipped with highly efficient detoxification mechanisms. While detox diets may provide short-term benefits, they may have limitations when compared to the body's innate detoxification abilities.
Detox diets often involve extreme calorie restriction, specific food choices, or the use of supplements and herbal remedies. These approaches can be restrictive and may not provide the necessary nutrients for the body's optimal functioning. Moreover, detox diets are typically short-term solutions and may not address the underlying factors contributing to toxin accumulation.
Emphasizing the importance of supporting the body's natural detoxification process through healthy habits
Rather than relying solely on detox diets, it is crucial to support the body's natural detoxification process through healthy habits. Here are a few key practices:
Balanced nutrition: Consume a varied diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. These nutrient-dense foods provide the necessary vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support the body's detoxification pathways.
Hydration: Drink an adequate amount of water daily to support kidney function and help flush out toxins.
Regular exercise: Engage in physical activity regularly to stimulate circulation, promote sweating, and support the lymphatic system's detoxification process.
Stress management: Chronic stress can affect the body's natural detoxification mechanisms. Implement stress-reducing techniques such as meditation, yoga, or engaging in hobbies to support overall well-being.
By adopting these healthy habits, individuals can enhance the body's natural detoxification process and maintain long-term well-being. Remember, it's important to prioritize sustainable lifestyle changes rather than relying solely on short-term detox diets.
Simple and effective ways to detoxify your body naturally
Encouraging healthy lifestyle habits for natural body cleansing
When it comes to detoxifying your body naturally, adopting healthy lifestyle habits is key. Here are some simple yet effective practices to support your body's natural detoxification process:
Adequate hydration and the benefits of water
Staying hydrated is essential for optimal detoxification. Water helps flush out toxins through urine and sweat. Aim to drink an adequate amount of water daily, approximately 8 cups (64 ounces), or more depending on your activity level and climate.
Consuming a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
A well-rounded, nutrient-dense diet is crucial for supporting your body's natural detoxification process. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your meals. These foods are rich in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, which help promote detoxification and overall health.
Regular physical activity and its impact on detoxification
Engaging in regular exercise has numerous benefits, including supporting the body’s detoxification process. Physical activity increases blood circulation, promotes sweating, and enhances the lymphatic system’s function, which aids in toxin elimination. Find activities you enjoy, such as walking, jogging, swimming, or yoga, and aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.
Sufficient sleep and stress management for overall well-being
Adequate sleep and effective stress management are crucial for maintaining overall well-being and supporting natural detoxification. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to allow your body to repair and rejuvenate. Practice stress-reducing techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, or engaging in activities you find relaxing and enjoyable.
Keywords: body cleanse, healthy eating vs. detox
By prioritizing these healthy habits, you can naturally support your body's detoxification process. Remember, a balanced and nourishing diet, regular physical activity, sufficient sleep, and effective stress management are key components of a holistic approach to overall well-being and a natural body cleanse. Rather than relying on short-term detox diets, focus on long-term healthy eating and lifestyle habits for sustained health benefits.
Demystifying the hype around detox diets
Detox diets have gained significant attention in the wellness industry, often accompanied by marketing tactics and enticing promises. However, it is crucial to demystify the hype surrounding detox diets and approach them with a critical mindset. Let's explore the marketing tactics, potential risks, and drawbacks associated with detox diets:
Discussing the marketing tactics and promises associated with detox diets
Detox diets are often marketed as quick fixes for various health concerns, including weight loss, increased energy, and improved overall well-being. Eye-catching advertisements, celebrity endorsements, and before-and-after success stories contribute to their allure. However, it's important to remember that marketing tactics can sometimes exaggerate the benefits and oversimplify the complexities of the human body.
Analyzing the potential risks and drawbacks of detox diets
While detox diets may offer short-term benefits, they can also pose potential risks and drawbacks. Some common concerns include:
Nutrient deficiencies: Detox diets often involve severe calorie restriction and limited food choices, which can lead to inadequate intake of essential nutrients. Prolonged or repetitive detox diets may result in nutrient deficiencies, compromising overall health.
Unbalanced approach: Detox diets may focus on specific foods, juices, or supplements while neglecting the importance of a balanced diet. This unbalanced approach may not provide all the necessary nutrients required for long-term health and well-being.
Unsustainability: Many detox diets are designed for short-term use, which can lead to a cycle of temporary results followed by a return to previous habits. Sustainable, long-term lifestyle changes are often more effective for achieving lasting health benefits.
Potential side effects: Rapid weight loss, headaches, fatigue, irritability, and gastrointestinal disturbances are some potential side effects associated with certain detox diets. It's important to be aware of these risks and consider individual health conditions before embarking on any drastic dietary changes.
Encouraging individuals to make informed decisions based on scientific evidence
To make informed decisions about detox diets, it is essential to seek reliable information and scientific evidence. Consultation with healthcare professionals, such as registered dietitians, can provide personalized guidance based on your specific needs and health conditions. They can help you navigate through the overwhelming amount of information and separate fact from fiction.
Remember, sustainable lifestyle changes that include a balanced diet, regular physical activity, and stress management are key for long-term health and well-being. Instead of relying solely on detox diets, focus on evidence-based approaches that support overall health and consider the unique needs of your body. Making informed decisions based on scientific evidence is the key to promoting your well-being.
Exploring the science behind body detoxification
Brief overview of scientific studies on detoxification
Scientific studies have provided valuable insights into the body's natural detoxification process. Researchers have extensively studied organs like the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system to understand how toxins are processed and eliminated. While studies vary in their specific focus, they collectively contribute to our understanding of detoxification mechanisms.
Discussing the importance of evidence-based approaches
When it comes to assessing the effectiveness of detox diets, it is crucial to rely on evidence-based approaches. Scientific studies provide valuable insights into the efficacy and potential limitations of detox diets. Some studies have found that detox diets may lead to short-term weight loss, but much of this weight loss is often due to water and muscle loss rather than a reduction in body fat or toxin elimination.
Moreover, there is limited scientific evidence to support the claims that detox diets effectively remove toxins or provide long-term health benefits. It is essential to critically evaluate the quality and reliability of research studies and consider the consensus among experts in the field.
Keywords: debunking detox myths, do detox diets work
Debunking common detox myths and exploring the question of whether detox diets actually work requires a nuanced understanding of scientific evidence. While detox diets may provide short-term benefits, it is important to approach their claims with skepticism and rely on well-designed, peer-reviewed studies for guidance.
Evidence-based approaches emphasize the significance of long-term lifestyle changes that promote overall health and well-being. This includes consuming a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, managing stress levels, and getting sufficient sleep. These evidence-based practices are more likely to support the body's natural detoxification process and contribute to lasting health benefits.
By understanding the science behind body detoxification and critically evaluating the available evidence, individuals can make informed decisions regarding detox diets and prioritize sustainable approaches for their overall well-being.

2023.06.11 00:06 queenofthr0waways Ana has completely overtaken my life.

Years ago, I had fully recovered from anorexia. I was at a healthy weight and very athletic, and honestly at the best place mentally and physically that I had ever been. Then, after years of misdiagnosis, I was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis. It makes eating very painful because my pancreas doesn’t produce enough digestive enzymes if any, and food basically sits undigested in my bowels for ridiculously long periods of time. It often causes vomiting after meals because my body isn’t able to pass the food any other way.
There is no treatment available to me beyond artificial enzymes that barely help, so I was told to restrict my diet to just safe foods (FODMAP). I did that. And it was the biggest trigger I have ever experienced, prompting a relapse so horrible I don’t know how to recover from. It started out by just restricting to that diet, then removing certain foods that hurt more, then devolved into essentially having a medical excuse to say “I can only eat these very low calorie foods because of my illness”. And the vomiting is something I used to resist and try to push through to keep the food down - now I let it happen to reduce calories. It’s not purging, but I enable that symptom intentionally to keep my weight even lower.
I’m at my lowest weight ever. I’m losing hair, am constantly cold and dizzy, haven’t had my period in years, and I can’t even sit on anything that’s not cushioned. The malnutrition has led to early onset osteoporosis, and that combined with my excessive exercise has resulted in micro fractures in my arms and legs. Still, I use an airwalker to walk for 3 hours every day to get 30,000 steps, even though it’s extraordinarily painful. I only eat cauliflower and occasionally some fruit. I haven’t gone out with friends in years because every social outing involves food.
My physical illness enables my ED and will forever, and I don’t know how to live like this. I know I could gain at least a little weight back by restricting less to at least get to a point where it’s not going to kill me, even with my illness, and I want to. But I can’t make myself do it, because eating anything more than normal makes me feel so guilty I just break down sobbing. The worst part is that I don’t even find my body attractive - it’s all bone, everything juts out, and I’m always covered in bruises that never heal. But half the time, I still think I look fat, and the other half of the time, I’m just desperately grateful that at least I’m thin enough not to hate myself so much.
I don’t know why I’m posting this. I’m just so tired and scared.

2023.06.11 00:06 lolok696 Me and my best friend of 5-6 years are super close to not being friends

What im about to say will sound like a "am i the asshole" type story, but i already have my answer which is i AM the asshole, but that doesnt matter so let me get to the point. Me and my best friend have been friends for 7 years and have been best friends for around 5-6 years i'd say. Shes been the bestest friend ever and i could never ask for a better best friend and im so insanely grateful for her but things are starting to come to an end because of me. although shes my best friend ive always been incredibly jealous of her. I'd try to just shove my jealousy away but im a bitch and obviously i wasnt able to do that so i started to stupidly take it out on her. I was jealous because every single crush I had that was in our class would always have a crush on her first and all of our friends liked her better. It was obvious and I was hurt by it, so I started to take it out on her. I'd be like passive aggressive and things like that or talk about how I am jealous of her. I never tried to deliberately hurt her she's my best friend. Or at least I thought so. To understand what I mean you need to know what is going on right now. Since February me and her have been having like monthly arguments and it's been weird. We've been distant from eachother like we aren't even best friends anymore. In the first argument I talked about how our friendship feels weird and distant and how I'm tired of hanging out at her house every single week. What I mean by that is that she NEVER came to my house. She came 3 times in the past 6 years and I live around 22 minutes away from her so obviously it was a struggle for my parents to drive once a week to her house EVERY SINGLE TIME. That's what I meant by "I was tired of hanging out at her house" but I'm guessing she misunderstood that. She took it as "I'm tired of our friendship" which is FAR from the truth. She's my favorite person and she always has been and I think it'll always be like that. The way I talk about her almost seems like a crush 😭. Anyways so that was a little bit of the first argument. The 2nd argument was about me being passive aggressive towards her and overall being a bitch. I wasn't going through the easiest of times and it caused me to take it out on her + all of that built up jealousy. It caused me to say how I'm tired of her responses being about "mental health" which was insanely wrong for me to say. I didn't mean to say it like that, but it was still wrong. I said that because everytime I'd express my feelings about our friendship being distant or everything being weird, she'd talk about how it's her mental health and that it has nothing to do with me. I started to get tired of that response because I knew that deep down she wasn't being honest with me. This led up to the 3rd argument. Me and her went to my school friends house. My school friend was a bitch and she was really toxic. Anyway my best friend wondered why I still talked to my school friend if I hated her so much. I hung out with her because she was my only school friend. It's hard for me to make friends in school because I have really bad social anxiety and I used to go to a private school which had the same exact classmates for like 5 years so I never learned how to socialize at all. Anyway, my best friend got upset over that because I was being quiet at my school friends house. This caused an entire argument. My best friend brought up how she can't say the truth with me because she's scared of me because she has seen the way I act with other people. Usually I'd lash out at people because they would be acting like a bitch and I couldn't take it anymore. That's why she was scared of me. Now I've brought up the fact that it feels like we aren't best friends anymore and she's been mad. Really mad. Bringing up that I'm a hypocrite and that I say sorry so much but I never change the way I act. Now she's been mocking me with her cousin and overall saying how she'd be better off without me. Now I don't know what to do. I've been changing and I think I've been changing for the better. I'm aware that I've treated her like a bitch in the past, but I'm genuinely trying to change that. And I have been changing that. I don't act in the mean ways that I used to. So how do I explain that to her? Honestly, it's just been miscommunication. But I just dont know what to do. I don't want to lose her, but that's not even up to me. Because it's my fault. Another thing you should know about me is that I'm autistic and we haven't even been communicating properly for the past few years. She never told me she had so many problems with me because like I said, she's scared of me. She would also bring up how I was able to be blunt and honest about my feelings, but she wasn't able to do that. I just wish she would have communicated with me properly before so that I could actually open my eyes before it escalated into this. I just need advice. Please be as blunt and honest as possible, even if it hurts, because I know that I treated her like shit. And I'd do literally anything to reverse my actions, but now it's too late and we're about to stop being friends. I can't even call her my best friend anymore. I just really need help. Please and thank you :)

2023.06.11 00:06 Narragetto My (m25) girlfriend (f27) is mad at me because I haven't asked her about her feelings.

My girlfriend and I have been together for about 20 months and are in the middle of a pretty bad fight that started earlier this week. She bottled a lot of things up and kept them from me for months and during this time I figured everything was going fine. When I have something to talk about I bring it up to her and I assumed if she ever had anything to talk about she would do the same with me.
She's been keeping things in for a period of at least 2 months now according to her. In the past there were many times she would talk to me about her job (which she loathes but refuses to quit) and she would be so upset about work that it would start to take a toll on me. The yelling and frustration was too much to handle for me and it would only escalate because of her anger issues she's had since she was a child. (For context, I grew up in a household where my parents fought a lot and I quickly learned that if I was getting yelled at or if there was any angry yelling going on I had to get out of the situation. So now when I'm being yelled at I automatically dissociate and because of this it is very hard to remember things.)
Because I would be getting off of long shifts (sometimes as long as 12 hours) I would be a little drawn out and not so ready to handle the conversations. I told her that if we wanted to talk about our days it should be done calmly because we were both wound up and needed to relax by that time anyways. She took this as "do not talk about work to bf" instead.
Additionally we both have dealt with anxiety and depression currently and in the past. I once told her that when I was at work or out with friends I had learned to just act happy and positive until I actually felt like that (this is a strategy I adopted years ago and no longer do because it isn't necessary, I've been better). I know that this probably isn't good since I used to basically gaslight myself into thinking everything was okay by doing so but it's what I did and it did help me out in a lot of circumstances. Unfortunately this "advice" I gave didn't get taken the way I thought it was. She claimed that because of this advice and what I said about her talking about her work day she hasn't been real and honest with anyone in her life ever since. She has been pretending to be happy, even to me. She worked hard to make sure that I wouldn't think anything is wrong. We've talked about this a few times since and I have told her before and clarified that I do want to hear about her day, I just don't want to have it be a conversation that takes a toll on me. But she always goes back to what she thought I was trying to convey months ago. Any other thing I have to say is thrown out because of how she took things originally. There is no changing the way she initially took my words no matter how many times we've talked or argued about it.
Everything seems to just get worse and worse and I try to talk to her but she either accuses me of not trying to change myself or says that I think I'm better than her and she gets more and more upset. Her own mother has even said she could never find a way to console her. It's gotten so bad that she started self harming, saying that I was essentially making her do this because she has no other vices now.
This relationship has really broken me. I love her and she says she loves me too but I just don't see a way to move forward if she can't let go of the past and be in the present. I'm also terrified that something may happen if I just leave. None of the other people in her life know about her self harming when she's upset or even know how unhappy she is with her life. I've tried to do nice things and be a good boyfriend but everything is taken poorly or she just get more upset. She's told me that any nice thing I do is just me copping out. She also likes to keep people "emotionally indebted" to her by doing them favors and giving gifts without them asking and refusing anything from the other person. She's told me that she doesn't want me to try and help things after an argument or when she's had a bad day because she doesn't want me to have the satisfaction. Every path I've ever taken to try to do something nice for her feels like I've just been shut down.
I just don't know what to do anymore and I don't want anyone to get hurt or abandoned. Now she does want me to "fix" the relationship, but she doesn't want to have to do anything because she feels that she's tried to change enough and for better or for worse it has to be me. My mind is so mixed up. Should I break up with her or should I keep trying to be a good boyfriend and "fix" the relationship?
TLDR: My gf (27) won't talk to me about her life and is upset that I don't know what is going on with her. Any time I have tried to do something or help her I have been shutdown and made to feel powerless. It's beaten me down so much that I stopped trying to see what was wrong and just took her word when she said she didn't want to talk about something. She doesn't want to change anything and wants me to figure everything out without help. Her anger issues make her self harm and no one knows this. I don't want anyone to get hurt and I just don't know what to do anymore. Should I just break up with her or do I try to help?

2023.06.11 00:06 TreyDolla Plotting Multi-Day/Week S&R Lines

For stocks that have been in play for days to weeks, like CXAI, UCAR, etc. I was having a tough time plotting s&r lines without over analyzing. So this morning I thought that by starting with the daily, marking the highs, and then moving to the 5 (I use 5&1 min) to find an intraday multi-day/week pivot (if there is one), could keep my charts clean and avoid having numerous s&r lines.
This will eliminate the noise and help me focus on the best possible trades for that particular stock, rather than getting caught in low probability trades.
Thoughts? Curious to know how seasoned traders plot their s&r lines.
