2023.06.01 18:37 AlternativeJello3860 Was I raped?

Long story short, I dated a guy when I was 21. I’m in my 30s now. He was a very sexual person. On our third date, he introduced himself as a horn dog (yikes) and wanted all the sexual details of my life. That night, he parked the car and asked me to touch him and he wanted to touch me too. I was stuck in his car with him so I felt like I had no other choice. I was raped when I was younger so I’m weird about sex, and he knew that. He would endlessly talk about and ask for sex, blaming it on his libido. He said he feels the need to be sexual every half hour. He would constantly pressure me into sex even though we never had vaginal sex. He would ask, I would say no, and he would continue to ask until I caved. During dates, he would kiss me and undress me without asking and be all over me.
He would throw tantrums and get angry if I said no. He would berate me when I didn’t feel like hanging out. One time I had tampon in and wasn’t comfortable with being fingered so he told me to just take it out, that HE didn’t care. When I disclosed to him that I was raped (I was crying), a half an hour later he drove me home and asked if I would give him head. (After he suggested we play strip poker) When we officiated our relationship, he grabbed my vagina without prompting in the parking lot.
He would touch my breasts while he was driving. One time he asked if my rapist had a big dick. He would constantly tell his friends about our sexual activity in intimate detail. He repeatedly pressured me into letting him finger me and to give him oral sex. We never had intercourse.
I was adamant about not wanting to receive oral sex. One day he got between my legs and pressured me into saying yes. ‘You’re not gonna like this, but you asked for it.’ He said before doing it to me. I was tired of resisting him.
He was enraged that I wouldn’t have sex with him before he went back to school because he ‘wanted to have something to tell his friends about.’ The final straw was when he blew up on me over text because I wouldn’t drive two hours in a snow storm after work to ‘visit’ him.
Anyway, fast forward to now. I’m in therapy and recently started talking about this. He’s married now with a career. He periodically messages me. A lot of his messages were sexual (even after he was married) but now they’ve kind of tapered off over the years.
My questions are: 1. Was this rape or sexual abuse? 2. Am I crazy? 3. Should I message him and be straight with him about what happened during our relationship and how awful he was to me?
Part of me is angry I’ve been letting it slide.

2023.06.01 18:37 amanita_muscaria0127 Dry internal battery questions

Finishing the game after not playing it since I was a kid. Predictably, the internal battery has run dry. Game seems to be stuck at 3:30 am. The only thing I’m concerned about right now is the lottery corner, because it appears that I sold my Exp. Share (if you even can, I can’t remember) or released a Pokémon that was holding it or something. Big sigh. I wanted to see if I could get another with the lottery corner but I’m assuming that she’ll eternally say “please come back tomorrow.” I’ve read that sometimes after a certain amount of days it works but then you have to wait that amount of days again. Is there any way to see what date the game thinks it is? TM dude says he’ll get more TMs 8 or so days from now.

2023.06.01 18:37 brennan313 MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED - Issues with OLED care reminder

I'm reposting this from the ultrawide subreddit! (I tried to crosspost but it seemingly did not work at all.)
Long story short: If you own this display, are there any options in MSI OLED Care -> OLED Panel Info in the OSD, specifically related to the reminder? Also, what firmware version is displayed in the bottom right corner?
Long story:
Hey! So I got the 342C a few weeks ago, and it's been pretty great. The colors are amazing, the response time is insane, blah blah you've probably heard all about QD-OLED by now.
However, I hit one snag that ended up being quite a bit larger than expected. Every 4 hours, a reminder comes up on screen asking to run the "Short Time" panel protect function. It's kind of annoying, since more often than not, I'm not really in a great spot to run it when it does show up. This is a gaming monitor after all, so chances are I'm... in a game.
So I go to turn off the reminder entirely. If if lets you skip the reminder (eventually it doesn't but that takes awhile), then I assumed there would be an option to just not be reminded.
There is not. In both the built-in OSD and GI, the MSI companion app, there is nothing. Weird!
I got in contact with support, asking if there is a way to turn it off. The answer was yes actually, there is, in MSI OLED Care -> OLED Panel Info. in the OSD. That section is there, but there aren't any options related to the reminder. I asked about a firmware update, and also sent the S/N.
And this is why I am writing this post. I was told that there is NO WAY to update the firmware on my end, and that I have to send it back to MSI. There are options to update the MCU firmware in GI, but the support rep reiterated that there is no way to update the firmware on this display.
I've sent a reply just to absolutely make sure that the only solution is to send my only monitor back and wait for a replacement, but in the meantime, I want to hear from other 342C users: In the MSI OLED Care OLED Panel Info section of the OSD, are there any additional options related to the reminder? Also, in the bottom right of your OSD, what is the firmware version displayed? Mine is FW.016.
Obviously this isn't the end of the world or anything, but I find it very strange that there is supposedly no way to update the firmware, even though there are options to do so in GI. I'm also curious as to what they would even do to fix this before sending it back to me, if not just a firmware update. That's why I want to know if this is even an option for anybody, what FW people are running on, and how sort of widespread this issue is. Sending a display back is a huge annoyance, but so is missing features on a VERY expensive monitor, even if they are minor. I've also heard rumblings that the display doesn't peak at 1000nits, but I don't really know how to verify that. Also some reports of the fan ramping up randomly, I wear headphones so I don't hear it. I do wonder if all of these issues are related to the same weird firmware version, or if they are all separate.

2023.06.01 18:37 FZT7 22M. I want my CARDIOPHOBIA to STOP.

Age: 22
Sex: M
Height: 5”7 ft
Weight: 147 lbs
Health conditions: GERD, costochondritis, allergies
Medicine: Pantoprazole 40mg, Cetrizin Mylan 10mg.
Tobacco: nicotine thing (snus) for 7 years.
Alcohol: 0-1 times a month.
Previous health conditions: asthma as a child.
And so it begins…
I’ve posted here a couple of times, and I really appreciate the great answers I get. For 3 years I’ve had cardiophobia (I still do), but im starting to get really tired of it. I have tried many times to get a reassuring speech from a doctor, but I never got that, they say im healthy etc. but I never get any explanations, only «you’re fine».
I was wondering if any of you could tell me something uplifting and/or reassuring. I will write a lot of info:
Here’s some more info about my health:
I almost never feel my PVC’s, i have around 700 a day but i only feel like 0-4 of them, a day. They can come at any given time but mostly after eating, while bloated oand while in bed when i change posture or lay in a weird position. They can come while active aswell, but thats not so often, thats usually if i do a change in pace, like stop to check my pulse etc. (pulse oximeter). They scare me, not because im afraid of a weakened heart, but the fear of the ectopics turning in to a dangerous arrhythmia, i could name them all, but you know what im talking about.
My mental health is better, but the occuring symptoms i get from costochondritis, GERD, gastritis, slipping rib syndrome and (severe-) muscle tension makes me overthink everything, and i cant let go. I always think about my heart when i feel this pressure, tightness, shooting pain etc.
Doctors say im fine, and dont want to do any more testing, like: echocardiogram, x-ray etc. I’ve never had any of them. I also dont feel that im being takes seriously, well i do but the doctors are getting tired of me and appointmens are getting shorter and shorter because they dont like to explain things anymore, just: «Youre fine. Thats normal. Anything else on your mind?» So i feel kind of embarassed to keep showing up.
Thats why i write here, and i would appreciate any answers. I just want to get my life going, again, and stop this health anxiety.

2023.06.01 18:36 milesmf No high school diploma, trying to get my first "real" job

I am moving to a new city this August and am extremely freaked out about finding a job. I am 22 and this is my first time not living or being supported by family.
I do not have a high school diploma as I got really really sick a month before graduation and had to drop out (I'm doing better now) and I fear this will make me unhirable.
Over the last few years, I've gotten several freelance software developer gigs so I do have some work experience. I have also done some volunteer work so I suppose that's a plus. Even though I am recovering from my illness I'm pretty foggy most days so doing coding work is very difficult at the moment, that is why I'm not even trying to get tech work atm.
Basically, I'm freaked out about being able to find even a basic job. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

2023.06.01 18:36 Darksouls885 31 [M4F] #NC #US #Travel Caring Daddy Dom seeking a forever Breeding Partner

Hi there, I’m Tim from NC, 6’1 height wise, lean, active and Asian. I have dark hair with deep brown eyes that you can get lost in when looking up in it. I work in healthcare but when I’m not in the office I enjoy going on hikes, photography, watch/play sports as well as gaming and binge watching shows. I can be fairly active outdoors but also enjoy some downtime indoors.
I’m a laid back kind of guy but can be very strict during sessions so I will put you in your place when needed. Some of my primary kinks are DD/LG, Dom/Sub, breeding, rough, CNC, degrading dirty talk, name calling, roleplay, oral, anal, collaleash, teasing, orgasm control, cumplay, light impact play, petplay, roping and more. I highly value aftercare and will spoil you with attention making sure you feel belong and loved.
What I’m seeking is a partner who is easy to talk to, open minded, who shares similar interest and of course a good girl who wants to be bred and have offsprings. I enjoy a healthy lifestyle, both diet and being active which will provide our children with great genes. Hoping to find my breeding partner who can provide me with plenty of offsprings as possible.

I only get silence, not a smallest sound. I've tried various settings, it didn't work. I only managed to get a normal output once. Now, with the same settings, it doesn't work again.
I tried both my own model and a pre-created model downloaded online.
The only time I managed to get an output was with the "use GPU" setting off.

2023.06.01 18:36 freudsmomsego Does this scare you?

I have read and watched videos of experiences of DF’s who have been on this journey for over 6 years plus and it scares me. I’ve been on this journey since I met them 3 years ago and I thought this feeling would go away or we would some how be together but that’s not the case. I’m scared I will live with the ache forever. I just pray and ask why did this happen and why do I have to experience this. I work continuously on my self. I see these df’s improve themselves and start their own businesses etc and yet they all still suffer. Listening to how they have not had communication with their DM’s for years..crying at night… trying to forget them… and it doesn’t happen. My DM says they feel it too then why are they so content with no communication??? Why do they run away??? Then it was like this morning I had some weird memory of us before this life looking at each other telling eachother we were going to get it right this life and that we were not going to fail again. I saw myself telling them how will we remember each other? This experience is so out of the normal and weird. This isn’t for me a crush or obsession for someone. It’s like I cannot give up on this person. Not in a I need to marry them way but we are supposed to spiritually grow and connect somehow. I’ve done my fair share of my ego pushing them away and I regret it each time. It’s a constant battle of my heart wanting them and my ego not wanting this.

2023.06.01 18:36 Oblivion912 MyAsus application reads “There may be an issue with the battery”

Hello good people of Reddit. Like I mentioned above, After running the inbuilt diagnostic test in the MyAsus app. The report reads that I may have an issue with the battery, with a premeditated bot response, a link to their online FAQ page. I have run the troubleshooting and have tried every fix there was on the support page, but the problem still persists. I don’t want to raise a repair request since there aren’t many qualified engineers to work with a high-end machine(I use a ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE) and I’m afraid they might botch it up (I had a GPU issue during the initial days of usage, around 2 years ago and I had to face a lot of hassle to get it changed since the technicians had no clue on what the issue was, hence my scepticism).
Now I have come across other threads on here and they are guessing it to be a software bug. But I’m not very sure. Does anyone have any idea on the same?

2023.06.01 18:35 MR_DEEZ5 Can't play with my best friend no matter what.

Hi guys I need your help
So I bought a ps5 in February and gave my ps4 to my best friend in May. And before giving it to my friend I played a lot of elder ring with my brother in coop. He played on ps4 and I on ps5. And not only elden ring like every game with multiplayer worked. So just to make it even clearer I played with my best friend before on ps4(his cousin brought his ps4 with him when he visited him). So there shouldn't be any problema if we want to play. I played with him before and I could play with my ps5 with my brother who played on my ps4.
So now when I gave him my ps4 and we tried to play tekken 7. It wouldn't work. We made a private lobby and when he joined the Internet Symbole was crossed out. We choose the characters and the map but then we had to wait a bit just to get a error. "Communication problem" thats what came every time we tried it. But not just tekken. We tried jump force - "The connection could not be established". We tried Monster hunter "Session could not be joined".
So no matter what game it wouldn't work. There are only 2 games that work gta 5 a game I dont really enjoy to be honest😂 and brawlhala but I am not sure if he enjoys that because I am extremely good in brawlhala and he is a beginner he always says its fun for him but I don't think he has that much fun😂.
We both live in austria. I am in upperaustria and he is in Wien.
One thing that I saw was on Call of duty Black ops 3 my Nat-type was on strictly but I don't know if that has to do with it
Pls help us we are so sad that this doesn't work
Sorry English is not my mother tongue😂😂

2023.06.01 18:35 ImaginaryGrocery3341 Not being a “team player” if we don’t want to cover duties of people who have quit and haven’t been replaced in months

I don’t have a lot of tasks in my job, it’s a front facing museum security type job, but I’m sick of seeing people quit and hearing managers say they’re just not going to replace them (we’re stuck without coverage and it’s harder and harder to take time off) or taking months to hire someone. A coworker of mine gave a months notice and has been gone almost another month. No word of a new hire yet.
My job is one where we have to physically be in the building for it to be open to the public or staff. Slowly we’ve gone from covering other staffs lunch breaks in different areas to being regularly scheduled weeks in advance to cover for them when we’re short staffed ourselves. Finally we’re starting to say no and we’ve gotten a line added to our team news letter saying part of our job is to fill in when others are out in other areas, when we can.
But isn’t this different from being added to their schedules because they don’t want to rehire when people leave? Technically we “can” even when you make it impossible for us to have time off (or adding more burnout to the few people who can cover on my team) because there’s too few people employed here.
Just annoyed. I want time off this summer and my specific role has few people working in it right now, so no one who we cover for is allowed to cover for us because of our security role. One person works 7 days a week and has two jobs, only one besides myself is full time, one is a hostile jerk who has been demoted to part time but we’re still expected to “work on our team communication”. Ranting because I’m tired and annoyed. It can’t be that hard to hire people.

2023.06.01 18:35 romi_la_keh Dysphoria getting worse with time ?

I feel like I'm more and more exhausted. When I was 16, it was just a annoying noise in the back of my mind, but so manageable that I didn't recognised it as dysphoria. Now, 7 years later, it's getting so much worse, I'm so sad and angry everyday. The pain is soul crushing and it truly feels like it's getting harder and that the only thing that help is forcing myself to forget I'm trans and going on with my life like there is nothing. Of course transitioning is the only way out in the long term but I'm 9 months on t and my dysphoria is not as relieved as I thought it would be at this time. I'm far from getting top surgery and I just worry that I will never be free.

2023.06.01 18:35 Professional-Peak935 My company is charging clients more for productions and use of my personal gear, but paying me a flat rate. How should I ask for a cut of the pie?

I am the TV station manager at a local, over-the-air station in the midwest. I also create commercial spots for sponsors, but usually it's just throwing pictures together over some audio or using stock footage. We go for quantity, not quality, sadly.
Sometimes, however, a sponsor has no content to use or wants a specific spot made. I have kind of shot myself in the foot, because I started using my personal gear to produce these, since it's way better and I wanted to impress the bosses. Well, now they sell my services to clients for $100/hr, but pay me my flat hourly rate instead of cutting me in. Sure, I could tell them I need to stop using my equipment and they need to buy me gear, but they won't, and the quality of my work will suffer if I have to use the old gear we have here already.
I'm just wondering what you all think is a fair cut to ask for, or should I ask them to "hire me" as a contractor for those shoots and let me clock out or something? Thoughts?

2023.06.01 18:35 Slugtasticly Seeking advice on my small debt situation..

This may come across as redundant and obvious, but at the very least i’d like your logic on the situation.
I’m a 25M, college graduate with a degree in Finance. Post-graduation I had a great job in a big city I moved far away from my family and comfort zone for, and worked it until roughly 6 months ago, when I was laid off due to poor market and banking conditions. Since then, I have been unable to find employment. It has been very disheartening and saddening, but that’s not the point of this post.
I have $36k in cash and $25k in investments. $20k of investments are in retirement accounts, $5k is in Acorns. I also have $2500 in credit card debt. I’ve always been very responsible with my CC’s, but once I lost my job I figured “i’ll take on miscellaneous expenses with it, and pay it off once i’m re-employed.” Well, i’m still not, and the debt is stressing me out.
I’m stressed about the debt, but i’m also stressed about running out of money. I pay my own bills in a large city, and my unemployment has ran dry. The obvious answer is “you have plenty of spare capital, pay off the CC and move on.” Its obvious, I know, but i’m scared and uncertain about the future as of this moment. I never anticipated to be unemployed this long, and the prospect of my money running dry is haunting me. I’m tempted to liquidate my Acorns and pay the debt off, but that is an investment account for my future, so would be a bit sad to touch it.
Its a simple situation, but I do look forward to your replies.

2023.06.01 18:35 Throwaway758486868 Each day this week feels like a heart attack risk...

Several weeks ago I told my manager that I needed to reduce my work days because I couldn't handle how busy we've been, they put a vacancy sign up but haven't hired anyone. I also expressed to my Dad how I want to quit/ find a new job but he encouraged me to just keep this job for now.
So I tried to do sensible things like book some holiday time off urgently, this request was denied. In my next shift I called in sick with a headache.
I then got written up for how many sick days I've taken this year, during this conversation with my Manager they tell me the reason they won't let me progress with this job, which I've been doing for TEN years is because processing a refund REFUND is too complicated for me! They say this without ever giving me the chance to try it.
On my next shift I couldn't even bring myself to call in sick correctly, so I just texted my manager and left a message on the team group whatsapp. The message I left on the group whatsapp was probably pushing the norm because I made light of having a breakdown, it went something like:
"No need to worry, I haven't hurt myself. Just can't come in because I'm having a breakdown".
I turned my phone off straight after because I couldn't handle what would happen next. Eight hours later when I turned my phone on there was nothing, no messages from anyone.
It's now been almost a week and I've heard nothing from my manager or colleges. I don't even know if this is classed as mental health leave because my manager isn't speaking to me.
So this is a decade of work down the drain, I can't bring myself to go back and work my notice. All of my lovely colleges with their varied personalities ignored me. If I had nobody in my life, nobody at work has checked to see if I'm still around.
I've been going to bed with chest pains. I'm not worried about unemployment, I'm just so tired of people and I know for sure that a message where I state I'm having a breakdown being ignored is going to haunt my nightmares someday.
Sorry for how badly this is written, there's a lot to get out.
TLDR: Wanted to quit job, encouraged to stay. Told that I'm not capable of doing a simple task like process a refund. Had a breakdown, told colleges about it. Have been ghosted ever since. Essentially unemployed now but have no idea if it's official. Can't bring myself to work notice period. Feel sad that nobody has reached out. 10 years of work down the drain.

2023.06.01 18:35 Antiplax Seeking Advice for Non-Traditional Startups: Navigating Early Capital and Resources

Hi startups community! I'm one of the co-founders behind Ephemrial, a startup on a mission to combat the plastic crisis by developing seaweed-based bioplastic pellets that can be used in the same traditional machinery that produces plastic products. We're knee-deep in the R&D phase, working our tails off to perfect our solution. But as a non-traditional startup in the sustainability realm, we've hit a classic roadblock. How do we secure early-stage capital and resources to take our game-changing idea to the next level? My last startup was a Capital Factory (Austin) Portfolio Company, so I'm aware of software & hardware specific resources & funds, but there does not seem to be the same level of accelerator & VC support for non-traditional startups in Austin (I'd love to be wrong about that if anyone has knowledge of the scene in ATX). Have any of you fellow entrepreneurs cracked the code when it comes to early capital for non-traditional startups? Maybe you've stumbled upon specific platforms, accelerators, or some out-of-the-box channels that support ventures like ours? We're looking to discover innovative ways to access the capital and resources needed to make a real dent in this plastic problem & we'd hear your experiences, advice, and clever ideas. Cheers, builders.
