I don't think the Royal Family killed Diana. They perfectly knew she was more popular than them, why would they kill her and make themselves look like the bad guys forever? The Queen wanted Charles and Diana's marriage to work out, she must have understood that if everyone loved Diana and she eventually was to become Queen that would give the boost that the monarchy desperately needed with Charles at its front. Diana's chofer mixed drugs with alcohol, her death was his fault, but people like to blame it on the Queen because of the evil step-mother archetype (misogyny).

Your bf has unreasonable expectations of you and needs to get his head out of his ass long enough to realize that your health is not about him. You don't need to do better in this relationship, he does. He needs to meet you where you're at and if you "can't walk as much as he wants", then he's not meeting you. From the sounds of it you're doing everything you're supposed to do, so if he's making you feel bad about it for any reason, he's the problem. If he's actually very patient and you're just putting pressure on yourself, that's one thing and you shouldn't put pressure on yourself like that. But your post makes it sound like he's taken your illness personally and acted like it's restricting his life, which is 100% Not Acceptable. If he acts like that, he's gotta go.

It's chronic tendinitis, I have both "golfer's elbow" and "tennis elbow" in both of my arms. It sounds like no big deal but the pain is so bad I wake up unable to move my arms sometimes. I have been living with this for ~6 years at this point.

I do nerve flossing on occasion to help with my ulnar nerve, since my pinky and ring finger will go numb occasionally.

>>2044024
Seconding this. It's not your fault that you can't walk as much as he wants you to and it sounds like you're doing more than enough to try to treat and control your illness. If you've had this illness for 6 years and he started dating you 2.5 years ago he knew what he was getting into and should understand that this is just what you're dealing with, possibly forever.

My bf knew me for many years before I became severely chronically ill and has never made me feel bad or guilty about the things I can't do anymore or the times he needs to help 'care for' me, but I do sometimes feel guilty anyway without him guilt tripping me in any way so if that's what's happening, then just try to work through your guilt yourself and talk to him about how you're feeling if you think he's going to be supportive. But if he is the one actively making you feel bad that's not a you problem, that's a him problem.

A place for theorizing what the world will be like in the near or far future. Which jobs will be wiped out completely because of automatization? Which positions will be most in demand? How will education change? Will degrees be less esteemed? How will global warming change the planet? Which countries will suffer from it the most? Do you see the possibility of a third world war? Will the gap between the poor and the rich grow even further? Will China dominate the world? Will the Japanese go extinct? Flying cars when? Which novel/film/other medium do you think paints an accurate picture of what the world will look like?

You're both retarded. Do you not know what scientists mean when they say CO2 is a "greenhouse gas" and how that correlates to increased climate temperatures when you have too much of it in the atmosphere?

That's why I'm wondering. it would so obviously be a net negative on the world to fire more nukes but if one country fired them off the common consensus is that the other country would also fire off whatever they could, creating a M.A.D. scenario. You'd also have to consider allied countries with nuclear power that could get involved. I personally feel strongly that if one is launched there should be never be any fired in response because that would just add to the destruction but that's not how fighting works. In an ideal world they wouldn't exist but here we are.

The concept of greenhouse gases are a theory and nothing more. Volcanic eruptions alone release around 230 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. Man made climate change is a scam by the elites to enforce their agenda and hide the real environmental threat which is contamination of the natural environment by man made chemicals.

In the 60s and 70s people began to form movements against big corporations that were polluting the environment. This includes Green Peace fighting against the dumping of nuclear waste into the Atlantic Ocean, local groups formed to protest the dumping of toxic waste, such at Love Canal, which lead to the CERCLA legislation in the US and Rachel Carson's book Silent Spring which lead to DDT being banned as an agricultural pesticide. Theories about climate change never appeared in the media until these protest groups became too powerful and were able to pressure governments into forcing companies to deal responsibly with chemical waste. In the 70s when climate change first appeared as a concept, the warning was that the earth would experience another ice age, not global warming. Since then the media has pushed hysterical claims about melting polar ice caps and increasing temperature, none of which have come true.

The embedded video is an ABC documentary from 1979 about environmental contamination in the US. Notice that any form of discussion or awareness about how big corporations pollute the environment is now completely absent from public discourse and media reporting, yet we get exposed to the latest "the gas needed by plants to photosynthesize is going to end the world" propaganda while corporations can dump whatever they want into the environment without anyone paying attention.

>hurr durr it's just a theory it's not real
>it's just a model, you can't trust it
Every human advancement in the modern world has been achieved because of "scientific theories" and models to predict natural phenomenon so to deny established theories despite the evidence for it is retarded. This kind of nitpicking of definition and truth reminds me how TRAs go at lengths about the abstractions of a woman, just disingenuous.

>Carbon dioxide is not toxic, it's necessary for life on earth.

No climate scientist would seriously say "CO2 is toxic", the reason why they focus on CO2 is because of its chemical/physical nature in absorbing and re-emitting infrared radiation due to its vibrational modes, which you can measure in the lab by IR spectroscopy. And obviously, too much of it in the atmosphere offsets the radiative balance of Earth.

>Exactly, it's all a distraction from the real issue.

You know you can care about two things at once? Caring about climate change doesn't mean you can't care about environmental pollutants. Both issues still lead to holding major corporations accountable. What reason would petrochemical companies gain from pushing the truth of climate change when they're already funneling massive amounts of money into climate denialism through lobbying, campaign donations, lawsuits, paying public figures to say what they want, etc.

>no collar or any indicator he belonged to anyone
>always coming up to me demanding affection
>took him in assuming he's a stray

>after a week start seeing missing posters with a cat that's most likely him in them
>ignore them, telling myself it's not
>his owner contacts me on Facebook a few months later saying she thinks it's her cat and that she wants it back (apparently a neighbor tipped her off that I might have him because she saw him through the window)
>I lie and tell her I've had him for longer than her cat's been missing and there's no way they're the same cat

I feel bad, but who the fuck let's their cat be outdoors in an area filled with fisher cats, dog breeds known for being predatorial toward cars, heavy traffic, and doesn't even put a collar/name tag on them? Not only are this cat and I super bonded at this point, but I would genuinely worry about his safety going back to someone who lacks this much common sense.

To bait people like me into finally ending it or push them to the breaking point aka get reaction to laugh at, since severe trauma is still very funny to mock in this day and age, especially if a sufferer is a woman. People who do this are fully aware that support (or lack of) are essentially a matter of life or death to those who are in a crisis, considering that people in this state take literally every small thing as a sign to either do or not to do it. I don't know what I expected by posting here though, that's on me.

I need help and I have no one to help me. I have nothing and no one to turn to. All I have is reels to make time go past fast as possible but I don’t even know what I’m fast forwarding for. Food doesn’t help, masturbating doesn’t help, talking this guy I know helps somewhat, nothing I normally love helps. No drawing helps, no hobby helps. I only want to hurt myself now and I just can’t undo so much endurance that I took to get here. I had a friend get really bad eczema all over his body but he’s gotten better completely in less than a month and I’ve been suffering for two years like that. Fuck. And when I saw him last I asked him if his feet itched and he was super nonchalant about it and said they’re fine now. And my feet were doing bad and bothering me so bad but I’m alone in it. And I thought of lashing out and thought how if he’d saw that he wouldn’t relate anymore because he got better and I was like fuck I’m still not better. And my family is killing me this house is killing me. I’m blamed for everything I can’t show anything or else it’s my fault for throwing off the balance and my fault if things go bad. I thought my brother would be gone by now but he’s not but he was supposed to move out and I love him and want to see him thrive because he’s not here but also to just give me a break because I can’t fucking take it anymore. I’ve never said this in my whole life but I just feel abused. I have no say in my health and it’s just so shit and I’ve been eating meat and potatoes for the last two months or so literally just meat and potatoes and I know money is skim but I’ve asked already for more food and my mom just says that other foods trigger me and that at most she’ll bring back broccoli. She shits on my friends and so does my brother and my best friend is in Japan with her shit head boyfriend so I have so little contact with her and anyway it’s been like that even when she is here she just barely texts because she’s busy and then my other friend is busy too and for the first time ever I felt so humiliatingly desperate to hangout. Like I need to get a job but my skin still bothers me and I really want just a simple job but I know my mom won’t like that. I feel so robbed. My condition robbed me of so much and I’m weaker and weaker every day to my family I just want to appease them I still need them I’m still so dependent. I don’t want to rock the boat I so desperately don’t want to. I spent all day iPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I actually hate men so much it's unreal, the coomerism is getting worse and worse everyday

I went on /ic/ (4chan board about drawing) and started browsing and posting a bit, it's gotten so much worse since the last time I used it (about 2 years ago)

There's a porn thread (didn't used to be one), a loli thread where pedos are open about how bad they want to fuck the children they draw, even the non nsfw threads are filled with coomer drawings
There was always some coomer content but it didn't use to be this bad
And seeing what men draw is just fucking gross and ruins it for me

I should look for another place to post drawings and get criticism

But some hot sauce brands out some effort into their recipes and make sauces based ion various fruits or veg or soy or shit, so you can pair tgem up with different dishes and they actually add to the taste instead of just drowning it in spice.
