    [–] One of our last few happy moments. My girlfriend died a week later from a sudden and unexpected heart attack beside me in bed. It´s been 2 1/2 years now and I still miss her. ifyouhaveany 3 points ago in lastimages

    I got rid of all of my husband's things and I don't regret it. I kept them for 9 years, dragging them from place to place - reopening old wounds every time I'd see them. After almost a decade I was finally able to let them go.

    Everyone deals with loss differently, you should know. If op wants to get rid of something, they should. It might very well be a weight off their shoulders.

    [–] Woman overshares about her divorce at a zoning meeting ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in cringe

    It's not your job to take care of your mom just because she and your dad are getting a divorce. I know it sounds a little harsh, but she is a grown person - and you are just becoming an adult yourself and need to find your own place in the world. With you going to school and her losing her husband, she is going to need to take some serious time to find herself, too. It isn't fair or right for her to depend completely on you emotionally or financially at this point in your life.

    The best thing you can do for both of you is to live your life, go to school, and become secure with your own future so you can be there for her later and so that she has time and room now to grow into this new chapter of her life.

    [–] My first piece - a double width blanket for me! ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in weaving

    Oh gosh, I really am a total noob at this - this is legitimately the first thing I've ever made. I used Dale Garn Daletta wool yarn for the weft and some cheapo 8/4 cotton for the warp. I picked a 10 dent reed because it felt right. I used the whole ball on the warp side for the big bands and didn't keep track of anything going on there because I was more concerned about getting my edges to look nice and making my beating even.

    Hope that answers some of your questions!

    [–] My first piece - a double width blanket for me! ifyouhaveany 2 points ago in weaving

    I kind of had this issue as well, but honestly I just tried to beat a little harder on the bottom side and move my piece forward a lot. 😂 The difference wasn't ever really bad enough for me to try and fix anything, but then again, this is my first time making anything.

    [–] My first piece - a double width blanket for me! ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in weaving

    Thank you, they weren't the colors I originally picked, but since they were clearance I kind of had to go with them. And I just whinged it, since it was my first time making anything. It was tons of fun and I can't wait to get my next shipment of yarn!

    [–] When my moon phase app does a better job of predicting my period than my period tracker app ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in WitchesVsPatriarchy

    Does this app let you make comments on days? I've been trying to track my chronic pain in relation to moon cycles and I'm wondering if there's an app that lets you follow the cycles and make notes about things on different days.

    [–] Tesla Model 3 stops itself to avoid an accident ifyouhaveany 4 points ago in BetterEveryLoop

    I had a similar thing happen to me, only it was my sibling that was in an accident right in front of our house. Heard the tires squeal and the crunch of glass and I glanced out the window and recognized their vehicle. I was out the front door in my socks before I realized what I was doing, ahead of my parents even (who were standing in the living room with me when it happened.)

    When things like that happen sometimes you just react, you don't think.

    [–] YouTube prankster confronts Instagram "influencer" about scamming people by selling diet plans and e books she never sent out or copy and pasted the same plan for everyone ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in WatchPeopleDieInside

    If people really didn't get the stuff they paid for, ask they have to do is contact their bank and get a chargeback going. But I'm guessing that people dumb enough to fall for her diet shit are also probably gullible enough to sign her NDA and take whatever she offers as payment, too.

    He went extra slow, okay?

    [–] This awesome mother. ifyouhaveany 3 points ago in AnimalsBeingBros

    Break teeth or, over the course of time wear them down to nubs of nothing. My old Akita mix is no longer allowed to chew due to the unfortunate choice of bones given to him in his younger years.

    [–] Poor, poor little baby, born with Harlequin Ichthyosis. 😥😖😭😰 ifyouhaveany 8 points ago in MedicalGore

    I hope you don't mind my asking, but how is his quality of life? I hope he isn't in much pain, it looks miserable and I understand if you don't want to respond.

    [–] Tell Canada it has bevers ifyouhaveany 3 points ago in comedyheaven

    Lol, asking people to not shit on your home and then you turn around and shit on Eastern Montana.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    It's 100% okay to ask if you can remain clothed, any sane doctors office won't mind. I hated wearing them when I was younger so I can sympathize, but I haven't had any doctors since that want me to put them on so it must just be a preference thing.

    [–] “OH MY GAAAWWWD” Pretty good bursts in this leg cyst. ifyouhaveany 6 points ago in popping

    I mean, the dude is squirting it all over a public park bench, I don't think he cares about what people think about him.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Doing phlebotomy is both the best and the worst part of the job.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. ifyouhaveany 2244 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I'm not a doctor or a nurse (MLS), but I do phlebotomy so I do have some patient contact. It's gross the number of patients who think they can make comments and gestures while I'm in the room drawing. I do know some patients are senile/have dementia/other health issues going on and they definitely get a pass, but so many of them do not and still act that way.

    More than once some creepy old perv insisted that he not wear his hospital gown, that he "just liked to be naked.". Well, sorry sir, this isn't a Ramada or your home. You can cover up with your gown or a blanket or you won't be getting your lab tests done.

    [–] Working as a regional product specialist ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in medlabprofessionals

    This sounds like my dream job, tbh. No advice but if you get a minute, can you tell me a little about your background / steps you took before applying to a position like this?

    [–] Best resources for ASCP exam? ifyouhaveany 2 points ago in medlabprofessionals

    All I used was LabCE and my school notes.

    [–] That cut to fill the dish. ifyouhaveany 10 points ago in gifs

    Probably based on Malcolm Gladwell's The Ketchup Conundrum.

    If you find yourself with some extra time, I'd suggest reading some of his other short pieces, this guy can make anything (even ketchup) interesting.
