Loan to parents

2022.01.28 09:34 BDLS-Bandit Loan to parents

This summer I worked as a lifeguard and I made good bit of money. My family’s financial situation is difficult at times and my parent asked if I could lend them over $400. Out of love, I happy lent the money but it’s been almost 6 entire months and I still haven’t been paid back. Also, my parents has deducted the amount they will give back to me because of common goods they get for the family like cereal or bread. Now they are only willing to give me $300 but the day I’ll get repaid seems to never approach. How should I reach out to my parent respectfully and in a way that will not seem to be an irritation? I love my family and I understand the situation but it is somewhat difficult knowing I may never get the money back I worked hard for. What should I do?

2022.01.28 09:34 Blue97 Don't know what to make of these numbers. Am I worrying over nothing? Should I pursue further testing?

Hello, I'm a 24 male, 6'5, 300 pounds. My doctor has told me I'm not prediabetic, but I have some reasons to believe I am.
I have high triglycerides (peaking at 190 in August 2021) I have impaired fasting glucose at the lab in the morning (104 mg/dl) (now 100 mg/dl) I had a borderline a1c in August 2021 (5.6) (now 5.2) I have high blood pressure
My fasting glucose over the last few years:
2017: 100mg/dl
2018: 102mg/dl
2019: 99mg/dl
Aug21: 104mg/dl
Dec21: 100mg/dl
My highest weight was 363 in early May 2021. After that, I started slowly cutting back and losing weight. In the middle of July I started dieting pretty heavily with intermittent fasting and watching what I eat. In August when I had my first tests, I was 344. I was also taking hydrochlorothiazide at this time. I'm concerned about my levels so I decided to buy a glucometer.
I found that between meals and upon waking, my blood sugar is below 100 and sometimes in the mid 80s, but by the time I'm up and moving in the morning, it raises to that 100 level for some reason.
I also tested my carb load:
98 gram pure carb meal in the form of white toast with a bunch of jam and a small amount of butter, here were the results:
0.5 hr: 114 mg/dl
1 hr: 122 mg/dl
1.5 hr: 139 mg/dl
2 hr: 137 mg/dl
3 hr: 115 mg/dl
I ate 139 grams of carbs in the form of some Korean pasta from Noodles and company, here were the results:
15 minutes: 106 mg/dL
1 hour: 108 mg/dl
2 hours: 94 mg/dl
3 hours: 112 mg/dl
4 hours: 108 mg/dl
I also decided to try a crude at home ogtt by putting 100 grams of table sugar in some water. I also wasn't fasting for this.
Time 0: 98 mg/dl
Time 30: 143 mg/dl
Time 35: 133 mg/dl 129 mg/dl
Time 45: 137 mg/dl
Time 60: 139 mg/dl 132 mg/dl
Time 72: 128 mg/dl
Time 90: 127 mg/dl 131 mg/dl
Time 113: 127 mg/dl
Time 120: 112 mg/dl 112 mg/dl
I don't know what to make of all this. Is there any test that could tell me the level of damage to my pancreas and beta cells? It seems like my weight loss possibly reduced my insulin resistance enough to allow my pancreas to keep up with these foods, but I'd have no way to know. I feel like I'm almost certainly going to get diabetes in a few years despite how much weight I'm losing.
I'm also confused about the a1c. Why was my a1c so high in August? Could it have been that I was prediabetic last summer, but I somehow am not any more? Could it be the hydrochlorothiazide?
I can't get this out of my head. I feel like my body is broken, but I just haven't done the right test. Is there any test I should do at this point?

2022.01.28 09:34 Canuck765 Annual Bonus and DPSP (RRSP)

Hey PFC,
Looking for advice on DPSP (Deferred Profit Sharing) and annual bonuses. I am 25 yo and have maxed out my TFSA. Next step I believe, is to work on maximizing my RRSP. The company I work for is currently paying out annual bonuses as well as DPSP as we approach our end of fiscal. With my current employment agreement I am to receive 15% of base salary in bonus as well as 8% of base salary in DPSP (base salary 60k).
With past bonuses and DPSP I have opted to send these funds directly to RRSP in an attempt to avoid paying the tax on this amount. Is this the best option? I currently have RRSP room to accommodate the full amount of $13,800. This will then be invested by the companies financial services partner Canada Life.
Alternatively I could take the hit on tax and invest these funds in my taxable savings account where I currently hold index funds.
Thank you!

2022.01.28 09:34 Time_Tart_2393 More DS2 and DS3 connections.

More DS2 and DS3 connections. Hello once again. You may remember me as the person who made these posts:
Well that was before I'd finished the DLC and platinumed DS3. Since then, I've 'figured out' some more things I thought were interesting.
Once again, I ask for upvotes. This takes a lot of brainpower
1) Yhorm, the Profaned Capital, Majula and the Giants.
Yhorm's soul description says he's the descedant of an ancient conqueror, who was asked to lead the people his predecessor conquered, despite being despised. It is possible this ancient conqueror was the Giant Lord. While Yhorm doesn't have a butthole face, his helmet is opened in a way that would allow a butthole faced giant to see.
Further, he's also weak to Dark. Elemental weaknesses in this game are actually important (unlike in DS2, where they are kind of a mess), and provide lore insight. For instance, every Irrythilian is weak to dark (Dancer, Vordt, Pontiff Knights, Fire Witches) as they're all descendants of the gods of Anor Londo, gods obviously being weak to dark. Every Irrithylyan except Pontiff, as he's actually a human, so he's weak to Fire. No other Giant in DS3 or DS1 is weak to dark/occult. Only in DS2 are the giants weak to Dark.
Some people think DS3 isn't a direct sequel to either DS1 or DS2, and it takes place in a sort of alternate universe that's further along the timeline (which would explain how Gwyndolin and Orstein have completely different fates in DS3 compared to 1). It's possible in DS3's timeline, the bearer of the curse never went back in time to stop the Giant Lord, which led to Drangleic's downfall. The Profaned Capital has the most blatant call back to DS2, with Laddersmith Gilligan's corpse. It's also filled with Gargoyles (read, Golems), which are all weak to Magic and Dark damage, like the ones from DS2. There are also dev messages on the ground which refer to Yhorm as a Greatwood. That could just be poetic language, but the Drangleic Giants are the only ones which literally turn to wood.
Also this:
2) The Profaned Flame and Aldia
The Profaned Flame is supposedly this cycle defying flame that never fades. Yhorm became a Lord of Cinder for the sole purpose of putting it to rest.
Now what is the only eternal being we know that also produces flames? Aldia. If Aldia is in fact an everlasting tree stump, it is possible that Aldia somehow morphed into the Profaned Flame. Simply setting sights onto the Profaned Flame was enough to convince Pontiff Sulyvahn to try to break the cycles of the world.
Now, this doesn't entirely hold up with the theory that the Giant Lord conquering Drangleic, since Aldia's transformation happened after the Giant Ward. But if my theory that the Giants are some kind of primordial human are correct, then it's possible the Giant Lord, upon learning of Aldia's topic of interest, allowed him to continue his research.
This'd also clear up who the 'Scholar' who convinced Lothric to abandon fire linking was. It was both Aldia and Sulyvahn, as Suly is carrying on Aldia's will.
3) Drang Knights and the legend of the Linking of the Fire
This has been a head scratcher for some time. The Drang Knight set says they come from a land known for the linking of the fire, which doesn't make any sense. That was exactly what every important figure in Drangleic was against. Vendrick was very much anti-fire. But if we go with the idea that this is an alternative Drangleic that was conquered by the Giant Lord, things start to add up. The legend of the linking of the fire could refer to Yhorm's linking.
The treason they're talking about could mean some of them ended up being influenced by Aldia's Profaned Flame.
We know of 3 of them. 2 protect the entrance to Anor Londo. The other one is found dead in the Giant Pit in the Cathedral of the Deep. Both areas currently ruled by Pontiff Sulyvahn.
What I gather from this is that some of the Drangleic Knights also looked into Aldia's will and agreed with him, so they decided to follow Suly to whatever he was going to do. The one next to the giant was probably one of Aldrich's snacks.
4) Yhorm's Friend.
So Yhorm has two friends. The one he lost causing him to abandon his shield, and Siegward.
Siegward is pretty interesting. There's an Black Phantom Catarina Knight in the Forest of Fallen Giants in NG+, so there being Catarina knights in what was once Drangleic isn't that strange (and Siegward straight up says he's Catarinian). It's also interesting that this Catarinian phantom spawns very close to one of the Giant Trees.
As for the 'one Yhorm wished to protect' I have no idea who that could be. Actually I do, it might be Nashandra, but I won't get into that now.
I want to make a part 2 to this tomorrow. I need to look for more info on Karla, Zullie, Alva and the Ringed Knights

2022.01.28 09:34 pooranran DS1817+ Upgrade HDDs options

I currently have the above unit with 8 x 4tb drives in a RAID6 configuration with a single volume. I am running out of space and don't really want to go through the process of replacing one disk as at a time because it will take weeks to rebuild the volume not to mention the drives will be worked hard. Unfortunately without a spare slot I wont be able to use the Drive Replacement feature in DSM7.
I though about getting a DX517 expansion unit to quickly expand my volume and leave spare slots for the Drive Replacement feature.
Funnily enough i was in this position a few years ago when another 8 bay Syno which i still have as a manual overflow for my current unit. Def dont want to buy a new unit again.

I am terrified of car wash machines. I know this fear is irrational and I want to get over it but I can't. I think it's a combination of motion sickness, not being able to see where I am going and tight spaces. Any advice? Does anyone else have this fear? What other irrational fears do people have?

2022.01.28 09:34 PranksterLad Citalopram - Thoughts?

Hey there,
I'm currently going through somewhat of a tough time. I feel anxious quite a lot of the time, wondering always the worst-case scenario, if someone would do something to me, and always seeking reassurance about things. Also going through a tough time with a number of things in life which has all come at me at once which I do not want to go into detail about.
Anyways, I spoke to a doctor today (my GP sucks in my opinion, even the convo with the doctor today I got the vibe she didn't know much about citalopram), but she prescribed it to me. I was on it previously, but I can't remember the exact experience I had except it killed my sex drive.
I am now here a few years on, more anxious, more worried, and I am just curious as to your thoughts about Citalopram? I see it can cause permanent sexual dysfunction? She prescribed me 20mg to start with and I am nervous about starting it. I would say my anxiety is really bad, but my mood is medium - I can still joke around and be okay. I also take anti-histamines for sleep - which I do not want to be on. Would this help? And that also reminds me, does citalopram cause memory problems/dementia?
Just wanted your thoughts and experiences on this?

2022.01.28 09:34 Surabar Voices of Recovery - Daily Meditation: Jan 28

January 28
“We may never be able to fully understand what those we have harmed have gone through, but we can ask for the willingness to have this understanding given to us, in God’s time.”
Sex Addicts Anonymous, page 48
I struggle to understand what harm I may have caused some people from my past. Over the years, some people have cut off contact with me, but I cannot recall what I may have done to cause this. Something lingers in my memory: a sense of guilt and remorse, maybe accurate, maybe not.
I may not be able to get into their heads to understand if I have done something to impact them, but I am reminded that my Higher Power can help me if I am willing to ask. It may take time and require a great deal of patience, but I believe it is worth the effort. If it is meant to be, the opportunity will present itself. I just have to be ready and willing.
In the meantime, I can continue to acknowledge the harms I remember causing others. In going through the process of identifying those I have harmed and being specific about those harms, I am able to move forward in Step Eight. With each person I identify and with each action I take ownership of, I come that much closer to healing my past. Calling upon my Higher Power, and with the support of my sponsor and fellows in SAA, I discover the willingness to make amends to those I have harmed.
I can do what I can do. Today, that is enough.
