2021.12.09 01:54 flyermiles_dot_ca I'm giving away Maple Leaf Lounge Passes!
As the end of the year approaches, I've got some Maple Leaf Lounge passes to give away!
Here's the deal: I'd much rather give these to people with long layovers on their long-haul holiday flights than to someone who's just going to duck into the lounge to chug a beer on a 1-hour layover when flying Ottawa-Pearson-Windsor.
So, comment with your routing, date of travel, number of travellers and how long your layover is, and I'll start handing out passes. I'm sitting down with a bunch of my frequent-flyer-nerd friends this weekend, and hopefully they'll have some we can share with as many people as possible as well!

2021.12.09 01:54 lonecavalier How Gaming Ruined My Life: Now it's my duty to help other people quit.
Intro and Apology for The Length of The Post I have been free of gaming for over a year now (apart from a few hours in the summer when I played a local co-op game with my young cousin)
But I have only just found this sub, so after this post I'll try to set up a user flair or whatever. Then I hope to be an active member of the community and help others as best I can.
(after writing) I apologise for the length of this post. This is really the first time I've sat and thought through my journey and certainly the first time I've put it into writing. I have put some subheadings to make it more readable but by all means just skip if you don't like long posts. : )
Disclaimer I should start by saying it's not as black and white as "gaming was the only negative influence in my life, since I quit games, my life is perfect in every way imaginable." Life is not this simple, unfortunately. But, combined with other healthy life choices it will drastically improve your life and is definitely worth the short/medium term struggle. More on this later.
My Early Experience with Games I played games to some extent my whole life (I am 18 now by the way) but it really started to become a problem when I was around 10. I basically stopped playing outside, stopped reading, doing my school work, etc. My Mom was very busy with work and since I was always quite a smart kid, she didn't really seem to see the affect it had on me, but it got even worse when I got an xbox one at 12 (2015-ish) - I started playing more modern (and more intentionally addictive) games like fifa, CoD etc.
This became even worse as I got really heavily addicted to battle royale games when they came out. I'm sure it's well known on this sub but these game studios hire psychologists to help design their game mechanics to keep you playing - this is particularly disgusting when you remember a huge portion of their user base are children... They know this, they just don't care.
The Leadup and Height of my Addiction Around mid 2018, I started heavily playing GTA Online - I always loved games based around making (virtual) money and GTA Online was the perfect poison for me, within a year (around mid-late 2019) I was so addicted that my whole life was coming second to the game. I quit school (in my country, I had already obtained low level education qualifications but I was still only 16.5 years old and should definitely not have left school) my thinking was cloudy, I couldn't concentrate on anything.
My brain had literally been melted by the positive feedback loops/overstimulation. I was depressed, I barely ate or washed. I would frequently game and watch youtube for 18 hours straight. My sleep pattern would cycle constantly. One week I would go to sleep at 2am (2:00), the next I would go to sleep at 2pm (14:00) etc.. This is obviously a very unhealthy way to live.
By this point my mom had been trying to help me for some amount of time but between work, caring for my siblings and probably immense (undeserved) guilt she felt towards my situation, she really struggled to do much, especially given my father died when I was a bit younger and she always struggled to be authoritative with us after this.
2020... Through the beginning of the year I would actually say I gamed a little less than I had been, previously. Though still probably around 12 hours or more most days and by the summer I was back to my previous levels. But when the school year started out after summer (Northern Hemisphere.) It suddenly dawned on me that I'd been out of school for a year. I'd basically lost contact with my friends ( mainly through my own laziness, and them getting on with their lives.)
This hit me like a ton of bricks - the guilt of being a burden on my family and the disgust I had towards myself and my surroundings got too much. I began to sink into a deep depression.
Late 2020 - Mid 2021 Quitting Gaming But Not Out of The Woods So around November I gave my Xbox to my sister and told her to have it for herself (since she wouldn't use it to game, anyway) and I said to NEVER let me have it back. This might seem incredible given how addicted I was but by this time, I was so depressed that I just stayed in bed most of the time. Even gaming, that I had been so addicted to - the very thing that had largely caused this depression - was incapable of causing me even slight happiness. Looking back this was almost certainly a major red flag for my health, but I won't go into that here.
I won't get into the details of this as it still causes me some pain and really gets quite dark. But you should know that I am extremely lucky that now (for the past few months) I really feel I have turned a corner and as a bonus - my horrendous depression (which I would never wish on my worst enemy) led to me quitting video games. Life works in strange ways, I guess.
Through the beginning of this year I hadn't felt the affects of quitting games, since I was still living in a state of severe depression and I wasn't using the time I had gained from stopping gaming to do anything effective.
June 2021 Onwards - Unprecedented Progress But in May, I started feeling these affects as my depression eased. Around June I dug out my old laptop, that I had used to use for school mainly. It only has integrated graphics but I'm sure I'd still be able to get some of my older games working on it, so I decided to install linux on it (to make it harder to game on, good tip by the way lol.)
Anyway, I got back into programming, which I had enjoyed as a kid. I guess I was kind of 're-sensitized' to positive emotion, given my lack of overstimulation during my depression. I was able to learn really quickly, I could listen to lectures for hours without getting bored (for the first time in my life.) I also did a lot of manual work with my Uncle, which I enjoyed and gave me a sense of purpose. Fresh air is great medicine :D
HERE, NOW AND WHAT NEXT So I'm now laser focused on bettering myself. Within six months I'll hopefully be in a position to get a software developer job - but if not, I will work some other job instead. I feel truly happy for the first time since I was 8/9. I still have the occasional bad days (don't we all!) and I am much better at dealing with it now.
In the mean time, I have taken a large amount of time to tutor my cousins with their school work, which I really enjoy and I will also ensure they never get to a stage that I did with gaming... But this is not enough for me! My future plans, outside of my career, are to help every single person I can, whatever age, wherever in the world they are, to quit gaming for good, or at least get it out of the way of living their life. If I can do it, you can as well!
So that's it. Thank you all and good luck!

2021.12.09 01:54 al0678 Registration of EFT help
I purchased some DHHF units on selfwealth. What is the next stage? My understanding is that I need to register the investment with Market Link? They did not send me a welcome letter. Also, trying to use my HIN on their website in order to create account, I get the message "HIN not recognised". Then I tried emailing Market Link. No response.
As this is my first time investing, I am becoming worried. Should I just wait or take further action? Why would my HiN as supplied by selfwealth be invalid?

2021.12.09 01:54 Various_Roof_12 I accidentally took Unisom after drinking, please help my anxiety
Basically what the title says. I (26F) had a glass of wine with dinner 4 hours before bed, completely forgot about it and took a unisom to help me fall asleep. I usually only have a drink or two a week with dinner so it didn’t even cross my mind not to take it. Out of nowhere I started feeling sick to my stomach as I was falling asleep and then remembered the wine. I’m now convinced my body is going to shut down while I’m sleeping. I probably won’t be sleeping at all tonight, especially after googling because I’m scared I won’t wake up, so any help is appreciated.
I’m 5’9 and weigh about 150 pounds.

2021.12.09 01:54 Risikio Trolling Rome
Someone once told me (probably random Facebook meme) that the teachings of Jesus were also low key forms of trolling the Roman soldiers occupying them. Such as a soldier was allowed to forcibly conscript someone to carry something for him up to a mile, but past that they must be paid... so walking two miles without question means the soldier now has to pay up. Same with turning the other cheek as a soldier could strike a subject only once or something like that.
I also heard that Jesus' statements of being present wherever three or more were gathered was a because the quickest way for Rome to crack down on Mystery Cults at the time was to say no one could gather in a grouping of three or more, thus gathering in Jesus' name was an amazing way to rebel against Rome... any grain of truth to any of this?

2021.12.09 01:54 CourseFlat2133 Almost broke up and unsure what to do from here..
My (f20) boyfriend (m20) had the best relationship where recently we’ve been getting into petty fights every other day. It started when both our mental health reached a new low for different reasons. His are very personal and mine is from high stress and unresolved problems in the past. I haven’t been the easiest with my sudden insecurities that were never an issue before and his new antidepressants have made him short tempered and emotionally unstable at times. Today he tried to break with me after I wanted to set a boundary on complimenting an influencer on twitter. He said I remind him of his ex when I keep setting more and more boundaries that often times don’t make sense. I was crushed to hear that, but he was right to be frustrated with how I’ve changed. He still loves me, he just wanted to look out for his mental health so he can improve and in my state, I am not much help. We decided to not break up but now that my worst nightmare happened, I’m so scared of slipping up again. I don’t want to lose him at all but I’m afraid I’m holding him back from becoming his best self.

2021.12.09 01:54 IsTomorrowAcceptable I feel like my life is over
So today I had a colonoscopy/endoscopy to try and determine the cause of my rectal bleeding during and around menstrual cycles.
Well, what I feared is what I got. While I don't have biopsy results yet, my surgeon did tell me he was 99.9 percent positive that he found an area of endo tissue just above my rectum. So, deep infiltrating endo. Stage 4.
This absolutely devastated me. I'm 26 and have already suffered through other surgeries as well. And now... I don't know. I never got to have children with my wonderful fiance. I never will. I can't use the degree that I've worked so hard for. I can't even work a horrible job that I hate. I do some WFH but it isn't work that I'm proud of, and now this threatens to stop me from even doing that.
A lot of my life has already been lost. I'm grieving the death of the life I could have had. Now where do I go? More specialists, doctors, tests, procedures, surgeries, recovery time, follow-ups, test results, waiting, frustration and suffering. Bowel resection? Maybe. Colostomy bag? Maybe. It's likely all over my pelvic organs, not to mention I had a tumor removed 5 years ago from my abdominal muscle. It's EVERYWHERE. It has invaded MY body! How dare this disease do such a thing? I just... don't know. I don't feel like I belong here. I feel like a prisoner, it feels like my spirit has been encapsulated by this horrific disease.
I'm trying to be optimistic. I'm trying to stay hopeful. But... what is there left? What is there left to... suffer for?
I'm sorry for such a down post, I just needed to vent.

2021.12.09 01:54 Throwaway1233456788 I’m (M23) not attracted to anyone who’s into me
Im bisexual n I wouldn’t say I have impossible standards but it constantly makes me feel terrible turning down people who are interested bc I don’t feel the same way. When I message people i am interested in I get no response or I do but it doesn’t go anywhere. I feel like I’ve talked to every gay guy n woman in a 50 mile radius who’s into me (New England btw). I haven’t felt much of anything. Do you think Im asexual or am I just not in the right location to meet people I’m into?
