2022.01.21 21:18 civgarth How do I manage my own reaction to my son's mental health issue?
It's one thing if things are happening to you but how does one manage their thoughts when terrible things are happening to people you care about?
My son has terrible anxiety and depression which has driven his friends away. He is lonely and always sad. He is on medication and seeing a therapist. How does a parent manage his own urges to be too involved, and likely make things worse?
Can you apply Wu Wei here?

2022.01.21 21:18 Phobophilia-83 Darkness within dark
At the house in Cheshire, we could often hear footsteps upstairs. We would be sat in our front room and hear the steps through the ceiling, followed by the creaks that the steps caused within the floorboards. Mum and dad would simply put it down to the "house settling" at the end of the day. I wasn't convinced at the time and I am still not.
Although it was a very pleasant room, with no creepiness happening in it, I can remember being really annoyed that my parents put me in the bedroom that they did. They had taken the attic room for themselves and I was scared that if the unknown something that I felt within the house, came up the stairs, it would get me first and they would be too far away to save me 😂 The stairs went up from the ground floor to a small landing, with my room directly on the left and the other bedroom to the right. You had to take a step up to the right to get to the other room, crossing the hallway which ran back parallel to the stairs... so that room had a buffer from the stairs if you see what I mean?
I moaned and begged to be moved to the bedroom opposite, as it felt safer being in there. However, once I got moved into that bedroom, I began experiencing scary stuff. I would lie awake in bed, in the dark and I could see what I always described as darker areas of darkness (shadow people??) I hated it. Some of the darkness would begin to gather together and then swirl, others would form the shape of a figure. I still worry about seeing the dark shapes in the darkness now, so I tend to have a light on, or keep my eyes closed until I get a light on. I really do not want to see the darkness within the dark ever again.
Often, I would get the feeling of being watched, as though there was somebody standing behind me, or that someone had entered the room, yet when I turned around to see who it was... no one was there. You generally know if someone is looking at you without actually seeing them doing so. You get a feeling and look up, or turn around and you catch them at it... Well this was that feeling.
Another feeling I got, was a change in the atmosphere, so it felt kind of heavy and claustrophobic. Sometimes I would get some sort of adrenaline rush, a fight or flight type reaction, an odd panicky dread feeling in my tummy or chest... Kind of like being at the top of the hill on a roller-coaster, just before you tip over the edge and go back down. The feeling of impending doom I guess.
There were many types of strangeness occurring in that house, but I think the last scary thing I experienced there, was when I was about 9 and I wasn't actually living there anymore. My dad had moved out and after a while I'd gone to live with him. I had returned to visit my mum for an overnight stay.
All I remember about the visit was going to bed that night, absolutely terrified that I was going to see the dark patches of dark moving about, forming shapes and giving me that awful feeling of panicked terror. I eventually got myself to sleep and I had been sleeping for a few hours, when I woke with a start. I sat up and could see it was still very dark around me and I began to panic. I fumbled about for the lamp behind me and tried to feel for the switch. After what seemed like forever, but was probably only 5 seconds (if that) I found the switch and pushed it. BANG!! The stupid bloody light bulb blew out. I crawled to the end of my bed and went for the switch on the wall for the main light. That bulb flickered on briefly before popping out of existence, plunging me back into darkness!
At that moment I felt extremely unwelcome in my old bedroom, in my mum's house. I felt like the house wanted me out. It reminded me of the previous time that the bulb had blown in the front room. It made me think of the time I got told off, for turning off a stereo that I didn't even touch, the horrible footsteps and constant noises around the place. I just felt like the house wanted me to go.
Anyway, I did go. I stayed living with my dad and left that creepy old house behind. Unfortunately whatever it was that had been "haunting" the house, seemed to actually be "haunting" me and within a couple of years, it had got bad again....

2022.01.21 21:18 129West81stStreet5A Local pet supply stores that deliver?
Hello! I currently use Chewy.com to order pet supplies. We started using their website because they have an Auto Ship feature so we didn’t have to think about ordering supplies, it would just show up every few weeks.
However, I’m looking for alternatives - do you know of any pet supply stores in the Twin Cities that deliver or have a similar “Auto Ship” feature? Preferably a locally owned company. Thanks!

2022.01.21 21:18 KrausenSniffer Private Health Insurance Vs Medicare Levy Surcharge
If I am understanding correctly, I really ought to be buying private health insurance to avoid the Medicare levy surcharge - please correct me if I am wrong.
On an income of $140,000 per year, the surcharge would be $2,800. At $182,000 per year, the surcharge would be $3,640. At $100,000 per year, the surcharge would be $2,000.
Private health insurance quotes seem to have it around $1,200 per year.
Is it a no-brainer that if you earn over $90,000, you should get PHI?

2022.01.21 21:18 DukeOfChaos92 Need some help figuring out how to get typical android auto complete working
I've got a simple text field for user input, but the keyboard seems to always think it is in password mode or something. On anysoftkeyboard the incognito indicator actually shows in the lower right when I am in that field, and none of the keyboards have the suggestions bar at the top. I don't need any custom auto-complete, just want the standard spelling suggestions. Any advice on how to get that working?
self.entry_box = MDTextField(hint_text="Entry Box") self.entry_box.input_type = "text" self.entry_box.keyboard_suggestions = True self.entry_box.on_text_validate = self.entry_box_validate
