A “lead” is simply a phone number that you get from a girl.
In a bar, nightclub, at a mall, at a coffee shop, on the street, etc, the key to sleeping with boatloads of beautiful women is systematically and optimally turning these phone number “LEADS” into meetups (dates) and then into “SEX”.
It will then be your choice if you want to keep the girl around to be part of your “harem” or make her your girlfriend.
So you can think of the process like this: Acquire phone number “lead”
→ Work the lead properly for a meetup (date)
→ close the lead (have sex)
→ retain the girl
→ repeat the process until you have your dream “harem” or “dream girlfriend”.
So as I near the big 1,000 laycount milestone, I decided to spill the beans on my ENTIRE “secret sauce” in FULL DETAIL.
My secret to systematically having sex with 100+ new girls every year.
For those of you who look at my high number of lays as being suspicious, I don’t blame you. But I have documented proof with 100s of hidden camera infield footage videos of me picking up women – which is more than any other pickup artist in the world has ever recorded.
NO WONDER I HAD 245 NEW LAYS LAST YEAR!
No lead is waster
That’s my secret: working leads like a machine.
I got the first highly optimized lead system for dating figured out, I want to give back to the men out there that are struggling. Leverage my years of frustrations to get laid immediately. What is the system? I call it The Lead Machine. Why Machine? Because it works like a damn well-oiled machine! Just put leads in and get pussy out! Here is a sneak peak of what is included:
Massive Master flowchart
Screenshots of conversations utilizing different parts of the chart
Dates Masterclass videos from Occam’s Razor
Videos About Dates Straight to the House
Videos About Closing at the House
Excel Spreadsheet Template for Organizing and Tracking Leads
It’s time to end that frustration, and stop wasting so much energy.
And that for a fraction of the money you are spending away inefficiently.
Stop wasting time and energy.
You don’t have to figure it out all over again. I did that for you. Been there done that.
So here I am offering the product of over ten years of optimizations, and first hand experience.
2023.06.09 07:37 marinathemermaid96 Wiped out on my bike yesterday. Is my wound infected?
Yesterday on the way home from work my rear bike tire slid on a dusty, rocky, dirt path and I (26 year old female) fell hard onto my knee and hands. It was very bloody and I was alone with only a soap-less public bathroom nearby, so I poured water over it, covered it with toilet paper, and called EMS. They wiped off the wound with water and gauze and said I didn't need stitches (though the scrapes look pretty deep), and should just wash with antibacterial soap at home. They bandaged me enough so that I could bike home.
I ran water over it for about 10 minutes and gently washed it with soap. I then let it dry a bit and covered it with a good amount of Neosporin since I couldn't get Vaseline until the next day, and then covered it with clean gauze and tape. I redressed it the same way in the morning and it had seeped liquid through the gauze, but not too much. When I got home from work, removing the gauze was nearly impossible (as in extremely painful) since liquid had fully seeped through it and it had become stuck to the wound. I ran water over it for a long while until I was able to remove it, and then washed it very gently with soap again.
I then decided not to cover it again and, after the water had mostly dried, put Vaseline on it (which seems to be what the internet and my aunt recommend lol). A little while later I noticed several streaks of yellowish liquid pouring out of the wound and down my shin, from underneath the Vaseline. I dabbed at it to soak up the excess fluid and have been doing that for several hours when drops roll out, adding a little Vaseline when it feels too dry. The liquid/ooze becomes crusty when dry.
The wound is really swollen and makes it painful to stand/walk. Tylenol has helped but I'll be working from home tomorrow since I don't want to deal with gauze again.
I posted pictures
of how it has looked in the last day and a half. It now looks like the last pic and is yellowing at the edges more and more as I type this, so I'm concerned it may be infected.
Honestly I have no idea if it's normal or if I need to visit a doctor for oral antibiotics, or maybe purchase an ointment. People are telling me different things and I live in the US so if I don't really need to go to the doctor, I'd rather not, especially after calling EMS. (I have insurance but still.)
I hope someone can help!!!

I see you sent me an email about a month ago.
When I poured out my heart and rejected you on March 20th, did you even read it? I took every drop of self love and decided to reject you, a man I am actively in love with.
Your email is so void of substance. So you left the dog out, and now he's howling because it was thundering and that makes you regret your addiction to alcohol? Hope I'm doing well???
I lost my entire living situation. I deal with DAILY consequences of trusting you. You feel bad? Good. Tell me more. I feel like I deserve to know.
I don't even know why I bothered to reject you with a super long, pour out my heart email.
Your email addresses nothing.
Are you drinking? Why did your ex from BEFORE me have my number when I changed it summer of 2019? What therapist are you going to? Did you drink on your birthday? What about your dad's birthday in January? You miss me!? Good
I'm suffering and I did nothing but make the mistake of loving you.
Its been a month since you wrote it. I'm sure you're in someone's bed or someone is in yours. Funny how every new mattress you get always gets someone else in it. I bought my mattress about 5 months after I started my started at my current employer and 'til this very day, you the only one I've been with in it.
You ain't shit.
Your email lacks any substance.
I'm glad I'm giving myself a year to refocus. I'm no where near where I want to be.
I wake up thinking about you, I go to sleep thinking about you.
But I'm in school, putting in WORK at work. I'm getting on track financially, and I'll be back on my own in the next few months.
Its hard how you don't get it.
The man I love, who I want to BE with, looked me dead in my eyes with hate in his soul and told me to die in the specific way I've always feared. It was meant to hurt. Thats the entire point of what you sajd. It worked. It broke me. Months of nightmares after. Missed work. Was heavily medicated. Gained weight.
You don't have to deal with the aftermath. It's ugly. It's heartbreak.
And I'm so legitimately traumatized from the experience that dating seems extremely unappealing. Sex even less so.
You're a whole joke to send a message and not even address any of the points in the last email I sent you. Absolutely wild.

2023.06.09 07:34 Grizzwald81 Injured Hawk
Hi everyone. I was playing golf today at San clamente municipal, and I noticed on hole 7 a distressed bird squawking really loud from a large tree. It was odd so I looked through my range finder and I was an adolescent hawk by itself. I kept playing till I got to hole 11 and saw another grounded hawk on the fairway. It didn’t fly away when I drove by him. I saw some feathers on the ground near by. I walked up and he was wounded on his right wing. Looks like he got hit with a ball or errant golf shot.
I called the pro shop to notify them and they said they can’t do anything. My girlfriend called animal control and they were closed because it was after 5.
Upon finishing my round I talked to the outside service about it. They said he has been out here for 2 days now. He said they can’t do anything about it.
Does anyone have any suggestions of who can be contacted. Maybe an animal rehab place. I don’t think local San clamente animal control will do anything. It’s really sad they are just going to let it die of starvation and it’s young child as well. It’s really bothering me.
Thanks for reading.

2023.06.09 07:31 Next-Error-96 I (24f) broke up with my (33m) boyfriend and have no support from my family..
I'm feeling really down and I just to vent..
My (24f) boyfriend (33m) and I of 6 years broke up almost 2 months ago.
I broke up with him, and it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do.
I really, really loved him. But our relationship wasn't healthy and it wasn't progressing.
I had to put up with a lot from him. Jealousy being the biggest thing. He would get mad if I went out with friends, even if it was very rarely. If my friends texted me or called me. He would make a huge fuss about it. For example I was on a phone call with one of my friends from work, and it lasted like 20 minutes. During that call, my bf was near me huffing and puffing. He was exagerrating every move (for example instead of closing the refrigerator door normally, he was slamming it. Or he would shut the door to the bedroom harder than normal. All while I'm on the phone with my friend until I hung up)
This would always happen.
He was also very obsessed with me which he told me he agreed with when he broke up.
Our relationship was very roomate/platonic for the past couple years. Whenever we went out to eat, I would either pay, or we split the bill. And it's not that I care about that stuff, but I would've liked him to surprise me even if it's just once in awhile. He was really tight with money though so I understood. We weren't having sex. At all. Our sex life just kinda died slowly and became non existent.
Our routine was very robotic. Him and I would go to work, we'd come home in the evening, and he was always upset about work. He worked in retail and the stress of that was getting to him.
We were arguing a ton, especially the last few months leading to the breakup. And I'm not gonna lie, I'm far from perfect and I know I wasn't perfect either in the relationship. But I just reached my breaking point.
Another thing that I didn't like was how he never helped me clean. Ever. He would leave his dirty dishes out. Clothes laying everywhere. Never helped do basic cleaning things. The only thing he really did was take out the trash. I did all the cleaning.
I finally got a new job, my dream job I've always wanted, a few months ago right before we broke up. But it caused me to relocate to a different state. I think something just clicked and I realized I needed to move out there alone. He really wanted to move out there with me. But I knew I shouldn't let that happen. I just felt like we were on 2 different phases of life. I was so happy, and positive. While he was stuck in this rut, not wanting to improve his life and was complaining everyday.
I sat down with him and had a talk and that's when I told him I no longer want to be in a relationship with him. He was devastated and it took a huge toll on me. He was my first love. He was with me through some of my hardest times.
It's been a couple months now since the breakup and I'm still struggling, and I think a main reason for that is the lack of support from my family. I thought my mom would be supportive, but she keeps asking me if I will reconsider. All my family keeps saying I should be sleeping on the couch and give him the bed because I broke up with him and put him through enough. And I understand what they are saying, but I feel like the villain. My aunt even said infront of me "if my husband broke up with me like that, his ass would be on the couch" I would like a little more support from my family. At first I didn't want to tell them all the reasons like I did in this post and I was very vague about why I broke it off. But they were so intrusive and asked a lot of questions and painted me to be like a bad guy almost, so I finally told them. But I feel like they still aren't supportive.
I know my mom really liked him and she took the news hard.
Idk, the whole thing just sucks. I feel like I'm the "bad guy" in this.
Any advice you guys can give me to maybe feel a little bit better?

2023.06.09 07:31 C01n_sh1LL Is Plaid part of Operation Chokepoint 2.0?
For those unaware, "Operation Chokepoint 2.0" is the idea that a coordinated US government initiative is underway to suppress access to cryptocurrencies. We're all aware of specific enforcement actions or policies which are publicly acknowledged, but "Chokepoint 2.0" is the idea that they are all part of a larger, deliberate, coordinated, inter-agency, possibly inter-branch, push. Some would only claim executive actions to be part of the hypothetical program, while others would include legislative efforts. To be clear, the "Chokepoint 2.0" moniker was coined by independent commentators, and nobody is claiming that a government policy with this name exists. It is merely shorthand for the idea I've just described.
Personally, I've got mixed feelings on this narrative. There is a fringe element which wants to blame everything on Chokepoint 2.0, at which point it devolves into a conspiracy theory. There are also self-serving political interests, primarily on the right, who are using this as campaign plank. Make no mistake; if Chokepoint 2.0 is real, then it is most likely a bipartisan effort, despite any pro-cryptocurrency or anti-cryptocurrency posturing on either side of the aisle.
However the core claim has some plausibility, and it is hard not to wonder if such a comprehensive policy exists.
Where things get complicated, is determining the extent to which this is a government initiative, and the role which the private sector, and the traditional finance industry in particular, might play.
This brings me to the point: Those of us in the US have probably noticed that it is getting to be damn near impossible to link a bank account for ACH transfers, without involving the Plaid service. Plaid is a surveillance service, or an identity verification/KYC service, or a marketing data extraction service, depending on how you look at it. Users must grant Plaid sweeping access to their bank accounts, by sharing online banking credentials.
The service seems ludicrous on its face. All our lives, we've been told not to share passwords or credentials, and it's basic common sense not to give a shady third party access to our bank accounts. But suddenly the financial industry as a whole tells us to throw all that out the window, and start trusting this service with our login credentials, and with access to every last detail of our financial lives.
Recently, within the span of a few weeks, most if not all major CEX's and fiat gateways in the US started forcibly requiring Plaid for ACH transfers. Existing linked bank accounts which weren't using Plaid, were disabled. Coinbase did this. Kraken did it in a sneakier way, first delinking all ACH accounts, and then bringing the feature back with Plaid required. Even Strike requires Plaid for ACH.
Previously, we had various "dark pattern" workarounds, wherein users were allowed to bypass Plaid if they pretended to go along with the process, but failed to complete it successfully. Those seem to be disabled across the board, everywhere I've checked.
I've been shopping around for a free checking account with the major online-only banks, so that I could have an account with limited info to share with Plaid. Imagine my horror when I found that most, if not all, of these fiat banks also use Plaid for ACH integrations, meaning I would still have to submit my main bank account to Plaid before I could fund another bank account.
This happened across the US industry in the span of a few weeks. It was very clearly coordinated. My question is, by whom? Did US government authorities lean on these companies to use Plaid for KYC purposes? If so, why haven't any of them spoken out about it? Is it some FISA court bullshit where they were given a sweeping, possibly unconstitutional order, along with a gag order prohibiting them from talking about it?
Or was this coordinated by the private sector? Did some traditional financial industry consortium get together and decide to force Plaid, as a blatant data grab under the guise of responsible KYC practices?
Or could it have been coordinated within the CEX/gateway industry? Or does the Plaid partnership simply offer these companies such a great value, that they cannot afford to pass it up?
Does the standard Plaid contract now include a clause which compels these companies to cut off all alternative methods of linking an account? Most of these companies have used Plaid for years, but offered manual ACH linkage as well.
It's all so opaque and hostile to the end user. These questions have been weighing on my mind for months, and I haven't seen them specifically addressed in the sub. Please, discuss. I'm curious to know everyone's thoughts.

2023.06.09 07:30 ThisIsADraconianLaw The thoughts of a new Fortnite player that started this season
This is a bit of a long post. Speaking honestly, I dismissed this game for many years. I thought it was primarily aimed at a younger audience and I turned my nose up at it. Then I decided to try it because my ex got me into it. We played a few games of duos, but my old PC was really poor and it was laggy. It didn't help that I was playing on an American server either, but it was mainly down to my PC being old and unreliable. Then I bought a new gaming PC and I play on max settings now and I've had so much fun! It's proof that you shouldn't judge something before trying it yourself.
I thought I wouldn't be able to completely finish the battle pass tonight and I would be a bit short, but someone on YouTube told me about the XP from the UEFN games and that got me over the line to level 200. I haven't purchased Save the World yet, but I might get it next season at some point. I've had five crown wins which I know isn't much, but I'm still trying to get better and improve. I've had 21 solo wins in total. I mainly stick to Zero Build as I find standard build kind of difficult. I'm playing with a controller, but I guess I need to get used to crafting more. If it wasn't for Zero Build, I don't know if I would have kept playing. I really hope we get a ranked version of solo Zero Build in the near future. Team Rumble was useful for completing quests and I like the chaotic nature of that. Goes quick too.
So for my first ever season, I've really enjoyed it. The neo-Japan theme is super cool. I miss the kinect blades. I understand some players were glitching with them, but they could have been patched rather than being taken out of the game completely. Maybe Epic tried that though. They were my favourite mobility item. I probably won't miss the ODM gear, but I am a big fan of the Eren skin. The only negative I have is the overclocked pulse rifle was crazy overpowered. I get that it's something you have to fight for and whoever ends up with it deserves it, but it did feel quite broken on a one on one.
So yeah, I can't wait to wake up in the morning and get stuck into the new season! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a One Piece collaboration as I'm a massive fan of that. I want to thank my ex again for getting me into this awesome game. I wish I could have played with her properly on duos. Maybe one day. I don't want to end this post on a sad note lol. Have fun with the new season everyone :)

2023.06.09 07:30 KitchObs How do you help someone who is about to go homeless? What options do they have?
Ok, here's the deal:
My mother has been unemployed for nearly a year, based in Ontario. She has had a long history of mental illness which makes life very difficult for her. In order to keep the roof over her head and food in her stomach I've been sending her $1500/month ever since.
Soon I will be entering a phase of life that won't let me send her this money anymore. I told her a few months ago that July 31 will be the last time I can send it.
She has the skillset to get a job paying at least $30/hr and has been searching for a job for a few months. But the market is tough, and her mental illness makes the search harder.
I don't know what to do if she can't get a job. Thankfully she has cheap rent, only $1000/month. She has been living at poverty levels for a long time and is willing to continue to. She is drowning in LOC, CC, and student loan debt. Interest is causing MINIMUM another $500/month, but probably more. (60k total debt and she's given me a lot of pushback on the idea of a consumer proposal / bankruptcy)
I've heard ODSP takes a long time to get into. Is Ontario Works similar? Are there any other options for her if she will go homeless in August but is actively looking for work?
I understand there's a lot of things that "should" happen. Get any job you can. Get the consumer proposal. Start working on ODSP paperwork...I've been pushing for these things for a long time and ultimately it's up to her how she wants to handle them. What I need is immediate solutions to stop her from becoming homeless in a few months.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
EDIT: Also, she has many physical health issues that would prevent her from doing manual labour jobs. So temp agencies I think probably wouldn't help right? From my understanding those are mostly physical based.

Stratistics MRC’s Global Solder Materials Market value is expected to reach $2,495.69 million growing at a CAGR of 6.0% during 2022-2028.
Soldering is known as a process in which two or more metals are joined together by melting, followed by placing a filler metal, called solder, into the joint. When compared to the adjacent metal, the filler metal employed in the process has a lower melting point. Nearly all solders contained lead in previous decades, but lead-free alloys are now more frequently used in electronics and plumbing due to customer worries about the environment and their health. In electronics, plumbing, building, and metalworking for jewellery, medical devices, and musical instruments, solder is employed. Between copper pipes in plumbing systems as well as joints in sheet metal objects like food cans, gutters, roof flashing, and automotive radiators, solder primarily offers somewhat permanent yet reversible connections. Electrical cable is connected to devices with electronic solder, and electronic components are attached to printed circuit boards.

2023.06.09 07:28 sugarcookiehope Any ideas? (weird/gross)
So I'm currently sleeping in a tent. I'm a short walk to a 24 hour gas station. I ended up eating something that really messed with my stomach. Well I didn't make it to the gas station for the bathroom. And I'm still kinda going through it. But it got me wondering if there might be a way to make or buy some kind of portable toilet near my tent. I looked at a few things on Amazon but I wanted to know if you guys had any ideas that you've done before that might be a bit cheaper.

2023.06.09 07:27 asheroo92 TW SA sort of? Navigating family-caused trauma
I don’t know when this started, but definitely from 16 until 22/23. My (31F) brother (34m) would open my bedroom door as quietly as he could, and then just stare at me. Sometimes I’d wake up and ask him wtf he wanted, and he’d say he needed to ask me something? Other times I’d catch him and I’d go absolutely insane at him. I remember literally screaming at him not to do it again, and asking why he did it and his response was always “I don’t know”.
It’s important to note that I was SA by someone when I was 16 so trauma was already there. I became hyper vigilant and sometimes stared at the door waiting for the smallest movement. I still have trouble sleeping because I think my brain has mixed that with the SA so I’m now afraid to sleep in case someone does something.
I’d listen to see if I could hear him walk near my room. I told my mum who told him to stop, but that never actually did anything. This was an extremely frequent occurrence and nothing I said (shouted) or did (shut the door in his face, ran after him, hit him etc) helped. I felt extremely powerless.
Like I said, this went on until I was 22/23, because that’s when I moved out. I’ve not lived with him since. How do I navigate that I have obvious trauma from this, but still want a relationship with him? I don’t want to spend any alone time with him at all, but I’m okay with family gatherings etc.
Is that okay? I just feel like the obvious/natural response would be to cut contact. I’m currently dating someone and we’re quite honest with each other. How do I tell him about this? Yeah my brother’s a creep but it’s all good…
no one knows how much this has affected me because I’ve not told anyone. I downplayed it once before and my friend brushed it off as “huh, weird” and as I said, my mum told him off but never did what I actually wanted which was to actually get through to him and/or stop him.

2023.06.09 07:27 Ok_Umpire_4064 What order for these products?
I bought a few different products from the ordinary to try to reach my goal skin. I have oily/combo acne prone skin with a lot of redness near on the cheek part right next to my nose under my eyes (not on the actual majority cheeks/cheekbone area). I don’t really get a lot of active breakouts anymore but I have bad congestion around my nose and clogged pores. Here is my routine:
AM: Cleanser: PanOxyl Hyaluronic acid Niacinamide Moisturizer- Aveeno Sunscreen
PM: Cleanser- PanOxyl Hyaluronic acid Salicylic acid Niacinamide Azelaic acid (for redness) Moisturizer
So basically the ordinary products I am using are: Hyaluronic acid Niacinamide Salicylic acid Azelaic acid
Please let me know if the routines above are okay! Or maybe if I should switch things around or take something out of a step. I was thinking about taking niacinamide out of PM but I don’t know and would love to hear from others.
Thank you so much!

2023.06.09 07:26 okaysowhatsup Food poisoning or stomach virus weeks later? Tests?
Hello! Did a virus or food poising just turn me from IBS-C to IBS-D?
Traveled from US to Ireland and began having “mild” diarrhea after 3 days, by my 6th and final day i got bad lower back pain and left side aches on my upper stomach. Began violently puking (even water) and basically had liquid coming out my other end for 9 hours straight. No fever or bloody stool. I had to get on a flight 2 hours after this all slowed so i finally took the Imodium.
It’s now been 2 weeks and i’m still having diarrhea and get bloating, gas, and cramps in my stomach especially near my right hip in the mornings and nights (my appendix was removed in Nov so not that)
So what the heck is going on?? I think maybe a salad triggered it, I tend to throw up after eating salad or sushi even if high quality…but it may be in my head.
If I go to a doc what tests can I have done? I don’t want to take meds unless 100% needed for stomach issue. I’m also panicked that now I have IBS-D. I appreciate you all greatly!!

2023.06.09 07:26 As_7he_K1ngd0m_Burns The Bat Sanctuary
This was almost 20 years ago. Not far from a hotel that is well known to be haunted. It was even featured in Ghost Hunters. The hotel, not the Bat Sanctuary. So, this building is an old, dilapidated farmhouse. Boarded up and very plain looking. Two story, with two bedrooms upstairs. But aside from a few kids trying to get in over the years, it had been unoccupied aside from the bats.
So, a few friends and I decided to go for a little B&E ghost hunt one night. My friend and I had been ghost hunting for some time together and these kids knew that. So, we basically had a few tag along tourists with us that night. Amazing how many people wanna join once they realize you do it every weekend.
We go and move a board that is already loose. Not actually breaking it but just pulling it loose from the nails. We weren't trying to get any charges if caught so we tried to be as respectful as you can when forcing your way into an abandoned property that had been repurposed.
It was fairly uneventful. Some furniture was still in the building, but it was relatively clean aside from droppings everywhere. The bats mostly stayed in the attic, so we weren't disturbing them. That's also where they got in and out so were had made the decision prior to entry that we wouldn't mess the attic.
So, nothing much happens, and two people make their way out to go back to the road. That left me and one other at the top of the stairs and one girl that had never joined us for any hunt down at the floor level, just around the corner from the staircase in the living room.
My buddy and I were both facing the same direction, down the stairs, ready to make our way down. We started to hear something from outside which we later found out was the sheriff rolling our friends that had gone back to the cars. We also found out that the officers refused flat out to go get us off the property or even walk up to the house. Deciding instead to just wait for us to come out. I said something along the line of, "You ready?" My buddy said, "Yep." We were almost shoulder to shoulder at the top of the steps and something took a deep breath in. Loudly. It was dark, but we both looked at each other with wide eyes and just stared at each other in the dark, silently. For a few seconds the air felt as think as paste and we were both holding our breath. From downstairs the girl said, "What did you say?"
"We're going outside," I responded.
I could hear confusion in her voice, "Are you upstairs?"
We were already moving pretty quickly down the stairs and didn't really respond. All three of us were out the hole pretty quickly one after another. Got to the cars without really talking and were greeted by our other friends and a few cops. The cops admitted to thinking the building was haunted and asked us not to go back in there ever because they wouldn't want to have to go in to look for us.
The next day the girl hit up my buddy and he texted me saying she wanted to meet for coffee and talk to us.
Pretty standard so I thought nothing of it. We met, she was wearing a really nice sun dress that day. So she tells us that at the same time we heard someone take a deep breath, she heard one of us, (she thought) say, "What's that?" As if someone was just around the corner. But that wasn't why she wanted to meet us. Not exactly. She had gone home that night and had a nightmare.
She was asleep in bed and woke up to her bedroom door opening. She couldn't move. At her door, in the dark house, was a shadow that made no sense. Then she said it melted down to the floor and she lost sight of it. Still unable to even move her head, she wanted to scream for her parents but couldn't physically do it. Then a hand, with three long fingers reached up past her bed, and then grabbed her right leg hard and pulled her out of bed. She hit the floor hard and "woke up."
Sipping my coffee, I chuckled at her. I jokingly said, "I don't think we've caused any nightmares taking people out before." Looking at my buddy I said, "Looks like someone needs a little more time out before she gets used to it."
She slammed her hand on the table, alarming the few others around the coffee shop sitting near us. I was like, "Easy, I'm only fucking with you." She was pissed and I realized she was really shook. I went from smart ass to immediately feeling bad. "Look it was a nightmare, we had some weird experiences, and you took it to sleep with you. Then she stood up and pulled up the bottom of her dress revealing the bruise on her leg that looked very similar to three long fingers. Tears in her eyes she said, "Why me?"
Thinking back, I remember how that moment broke my heart. More so that I didn't have an answer and we didn't do a very good job trying to comfort and reassure her.
She never came back out with us again.

2023.06.09 07:25 wet_goatcheese I have an obsession with my trampoline and I need advice with it.
I wanna know if anyone else has something like this. I don’t know how to explain what exactly my issue is but I will try my best. Firstly, I have a trampoline, big enough for flips and tricks, a very sturdy trampoline. I have had one for as long as I can remember. Whenever i’m sad, i need a distraction, i’m bored, or just have a lot of energy, it’s my go to place. I play music from my phone and I disappear into another reality. I pretend I’m different people from different shows, youtube channels, or movies. I used to pretend I was another number like 11 in stranger things or that I was another character on Aphmau’s mystreet in 2018. I know people like to pretend they are in edits or in movies but I go way out of my way to pretend I’m in this reality. It’s cringey I know but it’s truly so peaceful for me. As time has gone by, my trampoline is breaking and the springs are coming out, and you can’t fix it. My parents are not gonna get another one because they are so expensive, which I don’t fault them for. I have issues with my mental health and this trampoline is literally, i’m not kidding, my therapist. I had to go without a trampoline for 4 weeks 6 months ago and I can truly say my anxiety was so bad. I had way more panic attacks then I thought and I felt so on edge the whole time. I can’t imagine going without it. It’s gotten to the point that when I stand on one corner, my feet touch the ground. I tried walking out there 10 minutes ago, at 10:30, and I when I almost stepped on the first step of the latter, I saw a huge Black Widow hanging from a web on the latter. I almost put my foot against it. I have a terrible VERY irrational fear of spiders, and this nearly gave me a heart attack. I’ve seen spiders on the trampoline before but I try to ignore them so I can still be on it. But after this, I don’t feel safe on it anymore. I mean… going on it with all the springs gone and touching the ground on it isn’t exactly safe but after this, I know I can’t be on it anymore. I guess my question is, what does this mean for me? I know it’s a coping mechanism but is this normal? I’m looking for advice on it because I want to identify what’s going on with my obsession with a trampoline. It seems so silly but I’ve loved “role playing” on my trampoline since I was 7. Any advice phycologists?
