    [–] My Fiancee (34F) asked for help choosing a counselor, need help choosing specialities Mach10X 1 points ago in askpsychology

    Her mother had a wild past, she had a half brother from a first marriage, 2nd marriage was her dad, who went to prison for smuggling drugs when she was about 6, shortly after that her mother became a "born again" conservative Christian, emphasis on conservative. No secular music, had to read bible verses before getting paddled. Mother remarried a 3rd time, another half brother, dad this time is an alcoholic and blew what little money they had on booze (they lived on very little but had a decent home no luxuries at all). As a teenager her oldest half brother killed himself and her cousin who was just as close to her died in a wreck. I think religiously fanatic parents ticks a few of the same boxes as mentally ill.

    If anything I'm codependent to my fiancee and am already seeing a counselor about that and my impulsive behavior while frustrated or angry.

    Thanks!

    I think I figured out the brand though, Grand Slam golf polos which seems to be sold exclusively at Khol's.

    Wicking Polyester Collared Polo/Golf shirts. Looking for brand recommendations 3XLT or 2XLT

    I'm actually trying to figure out the brand for two shirts I already have, they are 3XLT but the logo is worn off, it's a rounded filled in rectangle, likely bought at a department store, likely Dillards. As a bigger guy living in Florida I find these to be fashionable, keep me cool and dry, spot clean easily. I'm open to other brand suggestions other than my mystery brand I love so much.

    I had thought of this, but not sure how well she'd understand FPS controls, especially the wonky controls on mobile. I'll look into it though, thanks!

    She's a bit obsessed with airplanes right now, so that'll work even better, thanks!

    Ah I didn't even think of this, she already has the Puppy Preschool from Sago Mini and loves it but only wants to play it occasionally, I'll probably pick up one of their $20 packs. Thanks!!!

    [–] My urologist is clueless at dosing aromasin and I'm still 4 months out from seeing an endocrinologist; advice needed. Mach10X 1 points ago in Testosterone

    My urologist will not prescribe me T unless I go off everything for almost a month, HCG on the other hand is much easier to obtain and cheaper for now without having to abstain for so long, I'll consider doing this after I have surgery in February.

    [–] Parents of Reddit, what is the most expensive thing your child has accidentally ruined? Mach10X 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Successfully keeping a car registered and owned by someone else is far far more difficult than keeping some jewelry. The consequences for driving around in that car could be jail, same for staying to sell it or scrap it.

    [–] IamA Max Tegmark – AMA! Mach10X 2 points ago in IAmA

    This question is on the topic of your first book.
    If anyone is working on an approximate number of level III universes at a given point of time. If we limit our scope to the conditions of our big bang and assume that the mass and energy of our universe is finite (no infinite level I) and limit our calculations to only our post inflation bubble (or assume that there is only one) then it reasons that there is a finite number of level III universes from the time of the big bang until now. While this would be an almighty number, I don't believe that estimating it would be beyond our grasp. Do you know if anyone has even tried to imagine or even make an attempt to determine the scale of such a number? My thoughts keep going back to numbers that are too large to write down in our universe, such as Graham's number. I know that any calculations would only be able to estimate the magnitude of such a number and rely heavily on assumptions, but I do feel that it would be possible to describe such a number using recursion such as Graham's Number does with arrow notation (tetration).

    [–] Breakup > undefined non-Monogamous relationship > Hierarchical NM > Monogamy? Help me pickup the pieces of this ill-advised journey Mach10X 1 points ago in nonmonogamy

    Thank you truly for all this wisdom.

    You both work hard in your jobs. I get that you are in the house less than she is, but that's no reason why she should have all the responsibility for keeping house (which is nigh on impossible by the way, if you have a two year old tearing up the place). If you can't help out more around the house, could you guys get a cleaner in once a week?

    Right now she does pretty much no housework aside from her laundry and our kids laundry (and watching our kid which is pretty huge, but she is in daycare 6 hours a day and I watch her whenever I'm home). Maybe once a month she will help with a deep clean doing about 75% of the work. The rest of the time I do all the dishes, trash, mopping, dog walking, dusting, vacuuming, and sweeping aside from those deep clean days. I used to give her crap about this but I've decided that, at least for now while she's stressed out of her mind with work, I will gladly do the work and keep a positive attitude about it. We did have a housekeeper come once a week, but the expense was not worth the minimal extra effort.

    What is it about her behaviour that says she doesn't trust you? Being vulnerable with another person doesn't always mean being warm and mushy. When she confessed she had a FWB after your break up, she was making herself vulnerable to you...

    You are right, the times she's opened up to me about how she feels, she's had been somewhat vulnerable. On multiple occasions she's told me that she honestly believes that I might be trying to get her to open her heart to me just so I can get revenge and stomp on her heart. I have no idea where this came from, I've never been vindictive or retaliatory to her or anyone for that matter. I'm not a revenge type of guy. I don't think this feeling has anything to do with me, honestly, but stems from some deeper emotional trauma from her past. It's definitely something she should consider exploring in therapy, probably solo. Since she trusts our current couples therapist I'll probably find someone else for myself for any solo stuff I need and make this one for us a couple and for her solo as needed.

    I've seen time and again whenever she's feeling sad or hurt she clamps down on her emotions hard and either becomes cold and distant or angry and retaliatory. It's clearly a defense mechanism to prevent herself from feeling emotional pain, but it also happens when she starts to feel very close to someone, she shuts down and turns off the emotion; she's even aware that she does it but can't seem to help it. Again it goes back to preventing herself from possibly feeling emotional pain; you can't be hurt by someone if you've turned off your emotions towards them and distanced yourself.

    Yes she did I think. This actually happened a day before NG left town, so I spent one last day with NG. EXF didn't like that at all but agreed it was okay at the time.

    I'm a big fan of Hotspot. Their brisket is delightful, outstanding ribs, and my favorite is burnt ends when they have them.

    Taqueria El Asador is the taco shack by the Shell station. I was born and raised in Southern California, the food here is legit, and you can order in Spanish.

    [–] I [35M] have been taking HCG and Clomiphene for a month now and suffer from high Estradiol (70pg/mL). Need advice on which estrogen reducing drug I should ask my doctor about. Mach10X 1 points ago in Testosterone

    I was impatient and ended up taking both. I was in a crisis in my life and wanted a big change. I wish I had been patient and tried just one treatment at a time followed by labs. Which would you recommend I continue? Would taking HCG and Arimidex together work well? Cycle test for a few weeks with Arimidex followed by HCG for recovery?

    I can't get in to see my endocrinologist for at least 3 months, and my urologist only does straight test and doesn't touch anything else, no cycling. And there's also the fact that even the endocrinologist might not be as knowledgeable as some in this community.

    My goal is to get my test in the mid range at around 600-700 while keeping my e2 and prolactin levels on the low end so I can enjoy sex again and have the energy to keep going to the gym to lose weight.

    Won't Clomid alone spike my prolactin? I know caber would control that as that's it's primary use for people with tumors on their pituitary.

    I'll probably end up doing T injections followed by cycles off with HCG and maybe arimidex or aromasan.
