2021.09.20 06:55 CommercialLost8183 I Need Help
I don't really know why I'm here or what I expect from you guys, but I'm hoping someone has advice.
My mom is 72; around 10 years ago, she had a brain tumor removed and has exhibited some signs of memory issues ever since. Then 5 years ago, she had treatment for cancer, and at some point, had a couple of mini strokes (TIAs). Since then, her memory has become significantly worse, though she's been reluctant to admit it, or at least admit it was an issue.
She (along with my dad) has been seeing a specialist, and one of the warning signs they mentioned is accidents. My mom had her first incident of wetting herself a couple of weeks ago. It seems like we've reached the point where we can no longer trust my mom on her own. We can't let her go to the restroom by herself of we're out unless we can be seen from the restroom because she'll forget where we are and get lost. One of our favorite activities is shopping, and we generally go with my son's (4 and 1), and if she gets out of my line of sight, 8 freak out as much as I do when I can't see my kids.
Despite all of this, my mom does still have amazing moments of lucidity where she almost seems like her old self. I feel like these moments are giving us false hope and don't want to get my hopes up. But at the same time, I want to enjoy those moments because I don't know how long I have with her. I can already feel the edges of grief creeping in, and I don't know how to deal with the feeling of losing her soul, her spirit, even though her body is still with us.
To add a few things: I'm an only child, so it's always just been my parents and I. I'm now married with two kids, and we moved from three states away to about 10 minutes down the road from my parents. My mom has very little support system outside of us because she doesn't want anyone to know what's going on. I mentioned her cancer, and outside of them, me, and my husband, I can count on my two hands the number of people who even knew she had cancer. Most importantly, I know that my dad is ensuring she is receiving and will continue to receive the best care. He is also looking for somewhere for her to live should something happen to him. He wants to alleviate as much burden from me as he can, especially in light of my mental health issues (OCD, GAD).
So, TL;DR, I'm right at the beginning of all of this, and I'm just hoping for advice about how to keep my sanity and still be able to continue to be an active and happy part of my family and help support my dad through all of this.

2021.09.20 06:55 KingTochongkis I just need hugs , please read, it would mean a lot to me
Everything has been really rough for me in the last year. one helluva emotional roller coaster. I know a lot of people here have experienced more, but I’ve just felt so overwhelmed lately.
Reel back almost a year ago, and you find me getting my first gf, which doesn’t sound too bad. Just a month or two later, her parents find out they’re bi, and think it was her friends (we had a tight friend group), and made her cut contact from us. She had some friends who were nice enough to let her borrow their phone for a bit to text us. Eventually, they came out as trans, and being brought up as a Christian from birth, it felt weird but i got over it and was fine. In total, i spent about 8ish months holding on for any texts that came once a week (if i was lucky)
They broke up with me after, which left me devastated, considering I spent so much time waiting for them. I moved on and got another gf that admitted that they kinda liked a different person. Huge impact on my self esteem and mental health. We got over it, and we stayed as a couple for about a month more before they told me that they were moving across the US. (and then broke up with me)
Before that happened, they told the group chat that they were friends with their ex again (who said some pretty bad stuff) so the group got kinda mad obviously. Being my gf, i defended her, and it resulted in the group being split, so i usually have no one to talk with except for my best friend.
So basically, lot of stuff happened. Im no longer on talking terms with both exs, most of the group chat barely talks to me, and im stressed from school, and am super tired from everything.
If you’ve read this far, it would mean the world to me if you left a virtual hug, or a few words to let me know im not alone

2021.09.20 06:55 Scary-Aspect-2446 What if Nasus ult caused fear?
Have you ever wondered what could happen if Nasus ult could causes fear?
Recently I was wondering what if Nasus on LoL were similar to Nasus on LoR, because Nasus on LoR causes fear at his last upgrade, and on LoL he just gets big and thats it (ik that he gets 50% cd and bla bla). But have you ever wondered what could happen if our doggo could cause fear status to anyone nearby? would it be like fiddlesticks? or maybe make him better for teamfights or difficult matchups? I really want to know your opinion about that.

2021.09.20 06:55 taynt3d GI Troubles?
We have a 20 month old golden doodle mix who maybe 5 days ago started having soft stools, the it was more like diarrhea, but no blood.
About two days ago we went to a rice and boiled chicken plain diet. We weren’t sure how much to give her so we stayed with approximately the same weight as we were using of dog food (60g 2x per day), although that looked small.
She now seems to be constipated, she’s barely pooped in the last 55 hours (one really small poop this morning). At first we thought maybe the plain diet is working and she is forming up some good stool and it’s taking some time, but now a little worried she’s blocked up somehow.
She’s generally acting fine, getting exercise, eating, and drinking although needs some encouragement to drink and is maybe a little off her game, but no pain it seems.
All the vets in our area are booked for weeks, something to gauge when/if we should bring her to a hospital if she keeps not going. And/or should we be adding a little pumpkin to her diet now even though originally the problem was soft stools? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

2021.09.20 06:55 rammo123 Following on from the earlier post, who is the best director that doesn't feature in a best '3 movies in a row' list?
Reading through u/KillingKameni's post here and there are some high profile directors I didn't see. Spielberg, Scorsese, Del Toro, Iñárritu, Woody Allen and many others. Are they missed off because they never managed to chain three classics in a row?
Who would be top of this list?

2021.09.20 06:55 hansolana Just 18 hours ago moon bois were wearing blinders and saying Evergrande was FUD
Sold my investment at $155 few days ago. Said I was going to keep only the profit in the market even if the Evergrande contagion was going to eat away the profits.
But being attacked yesterday by moon bois and Tether lovers made me sell the profits at $161.
Work up today and the price is now $144. Crypto market falling.
Evergrande, other property developers and insurance companies in China are sinking.
HK and Japan markets are closed today so the contagion hasn’t spread there until tomorrow.
Dow Jones pre-market is almost 400 points down.
Lesson of the story, Don’t be a reality denier. Real investors don’t have spiritual cult-like attachments to their investment. They let it go to save themselves.
