2023.05.27 17:00 Mean_Dust5317 any advice on how to deal with jealousy in relationships?
i’ve been with my boyfriend for over a year, we’re very solid and he’s never done anything to make me think that he would cheat, if anything the opposite as loyalty is a very important thing to him
but there’s this girl in his work who’s interested in the same sports teams as him etc. it started as a joke, the classic “oh is that your other girlfriend” but i’ve found myself now genuinely believing it and i’m worried it’s ruining our relationship
especially after i saw his messages (wasn’t prying his phone just kept going off so i glanced down) and they’d been sending each other like memes/updates about their team and stuff and it just made me feel so uncomfortable as that’s the way he and i first got together. we were just work friends and it started just like that and so i worry that the same thing might happen again and he’ll realise that this girl who doesn’t have all the issues that i have could make him happier
i’m really insecure rn in general, i’ve gained a lot of weight since we got together and that’s a major thing for me as i struggled with an eating disorder badly for many years before i met him so i don’t doubt that plays a part, but there’s also little things he says to me about her that just come across as suspicious but on HER part not his
like she calls him “champ” and “little man” despite being 3 years younger than him, says stuff like “this is why i love working with you” etc, and even things that i perceive to be backhanded like “oh i think me and your girlfriend would get on so well” when based on what he’s told me about her we have literally nothing in common?
anyway i’m not trying to rationalise it i know it’s unreasonable for me to be acting like this i was just giving some more context but does anyone have any advice on how to deal with these issues im having?

2023.05.27 16:50 throwRagfnothere My (23f) gf (25f) bails on every plan we have
So for context, ive been dating my gf for about 8 months now. The last time we saw each other was end of february.
We both have busy lives so its understandable that we can go weeks even monthswithout seeing each other. Recently, I have been inviting her over just to hang out and watch some shows that we started together. These are the kind of dates we both like because we both are homebodies and shes always talking about finishing one of the shows but can't watch it without me there and even at one point I brought up us cooking together and finishing a show but I have brought up outside dates as well (like going for dinner, the cinema etc)
However for the past month, everytime we set a date, something always comes up. Either a family emergency, personal emergency, work emergency or just something that means she cant come. Like i understand these things happen and you cant control them so I'm not that mad about it. However it seems like it happens every single time we make plans and a part of me thinks shes lying about it but I want to give her the benefit of the doubt.
This time, I'm not doing okay mentally and things arent going to well, i just really want to see her because its been nearly 3 months since we last saw each other. I just wanted to hang out, order pizza and just hang out. I told her this, i explained how like this would really like to see her and it would cheer me up. I also said to her that if she cant make it or really doesnt want to go (trying to give her an out) just let me know now and I wont be upset I'll understand. She said it should be fine, she really wants to see me and that nothing is going to stop her from coming. She even took time off work and showed me so that we could possibly spend the weekend together.
Well, today rolls around and yep, you guessed it - emergency happened, family emergency this time and she wont be able to come as this emergency will last the whole weekend and that shes really sorry.
I ended up just crying and replied saying thats fine. Like for the past month I would make plans and wouldnt expect her to come so I couldnt be disappointed but this time I guess I got my hopes up and I was really excited to see her so the hurt I feel is unreal. I know its selfish of me to be upset because family emergencies happen and family comes first. She said she can come next week and at this point i dont want to agree and get my hopes up again. I know bringing it up with her is gonna cause an argument because it will come across like im being selfish.
So how do I bring this up that doesnt make it all about me? What do I say?. I just want her to understand im hurt but not make it about me

2023.05.27 14:21 SLPkitty Clingy kitten bothering older boy
Hi all! I have a 9 year old cat (m) and just adopted a 5 month old kitten (m) about a month ago. I did a slow introduction and have been giving our younger baby a lot of play time in efforts to keep him from bothering our older cat. They have been getting along okay. They don't truly fight, but the kitten will try to wrestle at times which results in some hissing and swatting. This has gotten better since I got him one of those pheromone collars. I think their main issue right now is that the kitten is obsessed with my older cat. He just has no boundaries and wants to follow him around everywhere. If older boy scratches a post, baby runs up to scratch it too. If he gets up for a drink of water, baby runs over and has to drink from the same bowl. It's very cute, but my older cat is obviously annoyed by this and will growl and walk away. Is there anything I can do to help my kitten learn to respect my older cat's boundaries or will this just come with time?

2023.05.27 14:02 McDalla New PS5 going in rest mode while playing
Hi all, I bought a new PS5 last week and got this issue: while playing games (fifa23 disc, madden23 digital, both for PS5), randomly and without any alert (usually about 30 minutes in playing) the console automatically goes into rest mode. No fan noise, no scratches, no any particular sound. It doesn't completely shutdown, so I have just to tap the ps button on my pad to turn it back active. I made some research and: - the console is located in an open space, no dust or overheating since I literally taken it out of it's box 5 days ago - HDMI settings turned off - all options in the REST MODE setup are turned off - tried changing the plug and moving form vertical to horizontal position - no damage on the HDMI and power cable
Any idea or suggestions on what to do?

2023.05.27 11:26 EntrepreneurOk5546 ive recently known i made my bf feel like i was making him into a man he wasnt
me (22F) and my bf (21M) have been together for a little more than two years. everything has been smooth and happy, until i had to move a plane ride away for college. the distance made me feel insecure, and i overcompensated through asking for more ‘quality time’ together, unknowingly making him feel like he’s been missing out on life because of this. he told me he enjoyed spending time with friends, family and himself a lot, but he knew i needed that time from him so he obliged and just wanted to make me happy. now he says he’s tired, he felt suffocated, and just doesn’t want to be with someone who restricts him to be himself in the future, essentially saying he is failing to see my worth in his life for now. however, he told me he still loved me that’s why it has been extremely hard for him to open this up. i understood where he was coming from and have been really apologetic about all that has happened.
we have recently talked and decided that we would try again, with me promising to make him feel that i support him and am giving him enough space for his “me-time” in any way i can. i am determined to do better by him and want to support him but i just feel incredibly sad that we would only talk for a couple minutes in a day and i would be reaching out for a connection the whole time. what advice would you give me to overcome this? i am determined to be supportive of him but how do i deal with the loneliness myself? and in what ways can i show that i care for him and give him the support he needs? tyia

2023.05.27 10:27 Cute_Ad_5135 AITA for being upset my best friend keeps talking about his last relationship?
I'm using a throw away account for this because I'm pretty sure he uses reddit!
So, I (f 20) have been very close with my friend Aaron (m 23) for about 7 months now. Him and I met on an online game (not saying which for anonymity). We met a few weeks after his ex had dumped him (they had been together for about 2 years), and we hit it off immediately! Me and him have been closer then to peas in a pod. Me and him have an incredibly healthy friendship! I think because of this, a few months back I fell in love with him. He is the funniest, kindest, most supportive, handsome man I've ever met. He always takes my feelings into consideration and never argues! If we disagree on something we talk through it to find a solution that works best for the both of us or, just agree to disagree!
Now, a few months into us being friends me and him had both been drinking and we both started talking about we had feelings for the other person. However, he is a very light weight and didn't remember this in the morning. A week later he got a text from his ex and they got back together. His ex never liked me and out of respect for their relationship we stopped talking for about a month. One day I got a text from a mutual friend who always joked about me and Aaron being together. In this message it was a screenshot of our mutual friend and Aaron talking about how Aaron broke up with his ex again and wanted to get back in contact with me but wasn't sure if I would be ok with it. Long story short me and Aaron started talking again and almost as if we had never stopped talking clicked like legos. However, with in that month we stopped talking I started dating this not so great guy that broke my heart in the end (relevant for later)
Recently Aaron told me that he's always had feelings for me, and it was one of the reasons his ex and him broke up. We talked and we realized our goals in life lined up like the stars. And how neither of us have ever met someone they click so much with. We decided that we wanted to start dating after both of us had completely healed from our last relationships to be the best version of ourselves for each other. Me and him always do small things for each other now such as writing each other small notes and sleeping on call every night. However, he's been talking about his ex and the heart break of it lately. I always have and always will be there to support him through this because I know how painful it can be as I am also going through it (I know that it's not near the same because of the length of time they were together). I know and fully trust that we won't get back with her, but it still hurts to listen to him talk about another girl. I feel absolutely terrible for feeling upset about this. Him and I have been nothing short of a fantasy, so I feel bad for being upset over this. So reddit AITA yes or no? And what should I do?
Sorry if the format of this is bad! English is a little bit of a struggle for me!
Him and his ex were online.
I happen to be incredibly lucky and am moving to his city in the next few months for school! (we're both over the moon lol)

2023.05.27 09:38 Accomplished_Fixx I am frustrated and can't find anything like this.. Help please
I get heavy anxity attack when trying to chat with my close friend who I met online since long time ( I used to chat with her daily but this issue didn't exist). I notice this issue comes when I chat particularly girls but not all of them. Although I don't feel worried while texting.
Yet there are physical symptoms as muscle aches, chest tightness and brainfog and sometimes full collapse by simply sending a message or reading the messages in the chat window. They persist for sometime..
I noticed similar issue starting since 2021, when I studdenly started getting this feeling with some girls i chat with online. But wasn't noticed much and fine most of the time. Now it is getting worse, the whole chat is very friendly.
Based on my search it seems something related to hyperstimulation anxiety that could be linked to such event.
On real life I don't feel such symptoms although I sometimes feel nervous when chatting to a girl but I really do it and don't care at all and no symptoms.
I used to have general anxiety and social anxiety before but I used to expose myself to the event and it would ease as I challenge it and feel awesome later. But this situation doesn't look similar even with the symptoms.
Any suggestion? It is really frustrating..

2023.05.27 09:15 Sundiata34 Coming up on my migraine's birthday
I'm new here, wish I'd thought to come here sooner but I guess it's only been a few weeks that I've known what this is, which also makes me even dumber than I originally thought I guess.
I've had a really really bad year, I guess I'm looking for a bit of venting/commiserating and advice for anyone willing to chug through the mess to follow.
Roughly a year ago, I engaged in some extreme self harm, I ended up with a severe concussion as a result. As it would happen, I led a chaotic life when I was younger, I'm 33m now. Wrestled in HS and college, did a lot of dirt biking and mountain biking (poorly), and was generally accident prone- so I'd had what was likely many concussions before, and been knocked clean out unfortunately for a few minutes on at least 3 occasions. None of those had ever really fazed me head trauma wise in the past though, but this one did. Boy howdy did it.
My balance was wrecked, I was hiding from light like a vampire, dizzy, nauseous, head pounding with pain constantly, and incapable of even simple tasks it felt like. A quick trip to the grocery store would put me down for 2-3 days. This continued forever it felt like- but some things improved quickly though- my eye tracking, balance, and quick thinking all improved, yet I still continued to have constant headaches, dizziness, and light sensitivity.
It took me 6 months after the incident to be able to see a neurologist the first time. They fixed up my meds a bit and things got a little better. It took nearly 6 months to see them again, and I was in a pit of despair.
You see, people talk about headaches with that 's' at the end, like individuals that come and go, and I guess it used to be that way with me too. I got headaches occasionally like anyone else, I even had a bout with migraines for a year or so when I was 17. This past year though had been different, I haven't had headaches. I've had one headache. I've had it the entire time- sure it waxes and wanes, but it's never, ever, gone. It's there so day, every day. Waking, sleeping, resting or working. It's a constant companion, I almost feel like I should name it at this point.
When I saw the neurologist again a few weeks ago, they told me they believe that my concussion triggered a severe chronic migraine disorder. Which, gee, I feel like I should have started putting puzzle pieces together sooner myself, but I've just let it be some existential head trauma that wasn't healing and had no end in sight till now. You won't find many willing to testify to my intelligence.
It's damn liberating to finally know what it is and have angles to attack it from, and thankfully my wife has good insurance, she's dragged my useless carcass through all of this. The triptans all killed me beforehand, so they've got me looking at injections. Ubrelvey worked wonders- it's the closest I've been to not having a headache in a year. Most days I start around a 4 or 5 and end around 7 or 8 unless I exacerbate it by doing something, but an ubrelvey cuts it back to a 4. Unfortunately insurance won't let me have aimovig and ubrelvey, so I have to give it up to try the injections... Acupuncture has actually worked quite well too, I tried it for the first 2 times over the last 3 weeks.
I have real hope for the first time in so long, but at the same time knowing the likely limitations of the injections, it also feels like the last of my hope is dying. I've had this headache for so long, almost a year to the day, I don't remember the exact date, just that I went strawberry picking that day- I'm wondering if this headache is now just a permanent partner in my life, and I don't know how to deal with that. That thought is crushing me almost as much as the headache itself, or my inadequacy as a spouse and father resulting from it all. I'm failing so many things and my family every day, and I'm just an angry and bitter burden on them. I hate that so much, but there's seemingly no positive outcome for them- they're either stuck with this broken shell, or would have to deal with the horrible fallout of how I chose to leave. I haven't given up just yet, trying to take it one day at a time... I'm just really struggling.
To another day, and another way to disappoint the ones we love.

2023.05.27 07:50 Quiet-Librarian-5985 Something peculiar happened on a paradise planet (Outlaws content question)
Hello fellow Travellers, I have a question and a somewhat lengthy tale first. So I've finished Atlas and Artemis paths and now want to get into Outlaws content. Most of it I googled and checked Youtube, but yesterday a peculiar thing happened.
I returned to a paradise planet which I found before to explore it a bit better and found a crashed ship. Dying merchant on board gave me a contraband relic. Immediately forgetting all that I have learned so far about Outlaws I boldly tried to fly to the space station and got scanned by authorities. Laid a ton of bricks and restarted from the checkpoint. Then I've switched ships, putting away the one with contraband, happily went to space station->freighter->station and the rest is history. Why station and not simply a trading post on the same planet - I wanted to check the prices in different star system.
Free of contraband I went on exploring the planet but after barely getting in the air the damned authority scan started again and I executed a speedy emergency landing onto the grassy hill. Checked all inventories for contraband, found nothing except for one treasure and couple X-upgrades, tried to fly again, again got scanned and landed before it finalised.
It took me switching ships multiple times, emptying inventory and loading it back before those scans stopped ringing in the air when I was flying my main ship again.
Question 1: is this normal, that scan initiates on a crystal clear of contraband ship or is this a bug? I was very eager to get into the shadow content but I'm not really interested to repeat this particular experience. After I got rid of contraband I had only one excavated relic and two X-upgrades, which can be ringing the bells, but other reddit articles say it shouldn't.
Question 2: if an authority scan ringing it means that they're really out to get me, right? never happens that it ends with "sorry, our bad, you're free to fly away you squeaky clean Traveller"?
I understand it's a bit of a lengthy tale and boring read, but can someone explain what went wrong after I sold the contraband relic and how can I avoid this happening again if I still want to try outlaw content.

2023.05.27 06:30 kimishita-HK7 Transitioning from Commerce Background (Accounting) to Python developer
I come from a commerce background and have recently started learning Python through a course on Udemy. My primary goal is to gain practical experience and eventually secure a job in the industry, even if it's unpaid initially. I'm seeking guidance on the next steps I should take to increase my chances of landing a job in the field of Python development.
Currently, I have been focusing on building a strong foundation in Python programming. I have covered topics such as variables and types, lists, basic operators, string formatting, conditions, loops, functions, and more. I have also completed several small projects and games to apply my knowledge.
However, I understand that there is more to learn and accomplish. I'm open to any suggestions or advice on what I should do next to further enhance my skills and make myself more attractive to potential employers. Whether it's gaining expertise in specific Python libraries or frameworks, working on real-world projects, or even taking up internships or volunteering opportunities, I'm willing to put in the effort. (Any way to put my foot in the door??)

2023.05.27 06:20 aboutagirl0 think I’m crushing on my coworker.. F22 & M33
A few weeks ago I started a new shift at my job where I met this guy.. He is quite handsome and a overall very kind and funny guy, a bit older than me.. but I’ve grown to kinda like him over the course of these last few weeks.. we talk pretty much on the daily about all kinds of things ranging from asking about how each others days/weekends are, to just random questions about each other, he even asks me if I need help with anything (inside and outside of work),etc etc. We also started to refer to each other by nicknames.. He often compliments me and He also tends to ask me what my plans are for the day and seems a tab bit jealous if I’m around other guys. He is very sweet and It’s honestly gotten to the point where I kinda miss him if I don’t hear from him for a day or so. Sometimes I get the impression that he likes me, like when we’re about to leave for the night and he’ll nonchalantly advise that I can “text him later if I want..” etc.. but we have yet to make any plans with each other outside of work and now im worried im reading too much in between the lines. I’m starting to crush on the guy, but I don’t want to fall too deep down the rabbit hole if he ultimately doesn’t like me and wants us to have a platonic relationship (which I would completely understand and ultimately would rather have us remain on good terms as friends rather than nothing at all). I just wish I knew how he felt about me.. a penny for your thoughts? TL;DR

2023.05.27 06:07 Ichigoazn Pest control recommendations or DIY recommendations?
I live in Oregon, Portland-Clackamas area, and have been dealing with some longterm issues with my parent’s house. Our current pest issue is that we have a sugar ant infestation and a recurring carpenter ant infestation.
I believe the carpenter ants managed to make a lot of tunnels and access points in our walls for all of the sugar ants to explore and enjoy.
I apologize in advance for the poor story telling, I’m really just looking for some help.
To give some background, our house is only about 23-25 years years old (i think? Parents built it a few years before i was born). Exterior is mostly wood painted over and has sustained water damage (unsure how to repair). We have 5 fruit trees that surround near the exterior of our house and a lot of indoor plants with one that frequently secrets a sugary sap that the ants LOVE. We had carpenter ants for about 6 years before we finally sought professional help (2012-2018).
In the past, we had a company named Axiom treat our house for carpenter ants as there would be about 10-20 scurrying around our living space daily. We were with them from 2017-2018 with a contract of 3 years (ended early and had to pay a severance because i did not like their quality of service, noted later).
They managed to completely eradicate the carpenter ants (to my knowledge) within the first year and we were very grateful. Unfortunately, the next year, we would get service calls where they would say they treated our property, but I was always home to watch the house and on more than one occasion the pest control technician would park I front of our house, sit there for a few minutes, and then leave. That same day, we would receive a message saying that they treated our house when they obviously did not.
We’ve stated having this sugar ant infestation starting 2020 and there’s been no end in sight. Occasionally, I would see a few ants manage to get up to our third story and hang around in the bathroom. For the most part they will come in SWARMS to the kitchen area and indoor plant area if we do not catch the explorers before hand.
I’m kind of at my wits end for what to do. I’ve tried plugging up entry points with Vaseline, keeping the house clean and tidy 24/7, set out terro liquid ant bait, and spraying exterior entry points with pest killing chemicals.
I understand that the main root of the problem is the fruit trees feeding, the excess water leakage SOMEWHERE giving life to the ants and damaged wood giving them entry points. But with my skillset and our financial situation, it is not realistic to fix the water damaged wood, now can I rid of the trees because my mom will not let that happen.
Please help me figure out the best company I can worm with to treat this problem or cheaper alternatives I can take to do it myself.
Thank you for the read and I appreciate you for getting this far. X2 if you have any recommendations!

2023.05.27 05:44 CacaoButter85 Monstera browning
Hello fellow redditors and plant lovers. Sorry if this has been asked frequently. I tried the search function but didn't find an appropriate post
I have 2 monsteras, bought at the same time, put in larger pots at the same time, placed in just about the same spot for getting sunlight, watered similarly etc. But one has a small leaf that is browning at the edge that started about 2 weeks after purchasing and re-potting. It doesn't seem to spread now, but I'm not entirely sure
Both monsteras were bought on a whim in a supermarket, I know that's bad. But I took good care of them I think. And I water them so they're not "wet" but not "dry" either
They are about a legs length, knee to ankle (more than elbow to wrist, less than shoulder to wrist if that makes sense) and seem to be doing quite well
I was prepared for all sorts of stuff too, I got them larger pots and rich soil, lots of sunlight without fully being in the sun. The first couple days I definitely watered them too much. They cried a bit. The next week I watered them a bit too much again, they cried a little then. But now I think I got the hang of it. They're not left in dry soil, but they don't have wet feet either. And they don't cry anymore
But that one leaf is brown around the edges, about a quarter of it. There's no comig back from that, the brown part is definitely dead
What do I do now? Do I cut off the brown part and let the plant heal? Do I cut out the entire leaf (if so, at the stem or at another part). Do I leave it? Surely I shouldn't leave a dead quarter?
If it makes a difference, the browned leaf is a small one at the bottom of the plant
Thank you so much in advance
I took a few pics but I'm a bad camera person, they are blurry, my apologies for that

2023.05.27 05:37 BennyBoy12568 Lump under skin on quad
Just as the title says, i recently (3 days ago) found a very small lump about 3 inches above my kneecap on my left leg. It is moveable (it doesn’t move much but it does move) and it is hard, almost feels like a little BB, or maybe a pea. I’m not sure what it is, but I do have an idea and wanted some opinions.
I am a pretty avid weight lifter, and it is common that i will drop the weights on my legs, about exactly in this spot. I do remember, in the recent past that i dropped a weight on my leg extremely hard (had to bail out if a workout) and i believe it was right in this area. Is it possible some sort of, really hard trauma could cause something like this to pop up? Because let me say, it was an extreme amount of trauma (i dropped about a 60lb weight directly onto my leg). The problem is, i’m not 100% certain i dropped it here, but it was on my left leg in this area. It isn’t painful at all when pressed or pushed on it, and it isn’t red or visible on my leg. I know it’s hard to say just through something like a reddit post, but is this something I should potentially worry about? I appreciate any advice.

2023.05.27 05:03 Economy-Wasabi-194 Fight it or deal with it?
So essentially my leasing agent quit recently unexpectedly because of a personal thing. Then I had Monday-Thursday off this past week. Then I returned to work on Friday and my property manager didn’t check any of the property emails, check in with prospects or do monthly close out (until I reminded her). Then she told me that I’ll be working every weekend until further notice when they hire another leasing agent per our regional manager. Which would allow me to have Mondays off. But it seems like when I miss a day then things don’t get completed and I have to spend extra time to catch up. I told her that since it’s not something that’s typically apart of my responsibilities then I’d like to get overtime pay for working the next weekends and I’ll work on Mondays. She said she’d talk to the regional manager to see if that’s allowed. I did also ask if it were possible for her and I to switch every other weekend. She said that since she’s salary and the property manager that she’s not allowed to. I’m not sure if that’s true. But I’d be happy to let her have the Monday off if she wanted to. If we were able to switch off. My concern is that the most recent hire we had took 2 months to actually be able to start. And I don’t have a deadline of how long I’ll be expected to do work every weekend. And since my leasing agent left I’ve been doing all the leasing stuff and my tasks as well so it just feels like I’m getting handed all the these tasks and I’m expected to deal with it and I don’t have an option to say no. However, it’s just her and I working in the office right now. So I’m not sure what to do. I’m fine working every other weekend. Should I try to fight it or just deal with it?

2023.05.27 04:47 Practical_Step_3930 Alone and hated
My family hates me and I have 0 friends. I can't be sure when my family hating me started but, earliest I can recall is around 7. Even before then I was labeled a 'problem child' that being said I don't think I was awful just a typical kid.
When I was little kid my parents used to barade me for the smallest thing i.e accidentally spilling something or getting bad grades; I'd be yelled at and hit so I lyed a lot about what I was doing since I never wanted to get it trouble. As a result my parents would constantly call me a liar and sinner and would tell me how awful I was.
I have 4 siblings and none of them like me and I can't understand why at all. I can get my little sister disliking me a bit; she's 2 years younger and in middle school and when she was younger she used to copy me a bunch + I used to really want her to play games with me and what not but, we were never that similar. The only thing I can think of is some weird rivalry she made up in her head.
I genuinely don't know when she started to hate me since she had a phase where she stole all my shit and gave it to her friends and after that she just hated me and while we live in the same house together we don't speak more than once a week and whenever we speak it's her complaining I'm in the kitchen at the same time as her.
As for my other siblings; I tease my youngest brother (I don't really think he hates me that much) nothing to bad just messing up his hair for example. That being said me doing that causes my parents to think I'm Satan spawn and that causes them to tell me that's why all my siblings hate me and I'm awful etc etc.
My eldest brother is just weird genrally and hyper religious so it's a very mutual dislike and my other younger brother; well this one I'm truly not sure why he hates me.
So every single person in my life hates me and I can't do anything about it. I get in trouble even trying to talk to my siblings since my parents then say I'm antagonizing them just speaking to them; not even saying anything bad either.
And my mom also hates me when I'm in the living room. She gets upset I'm always in my room but, also complaines how I'm some how always downstairs and she'd rather she didn't have to see me.
I hate my family but, I'm very lonely and even though they hate me I just want to talk to someone. I've tried to go the week without talking to anyone but, I don't talk to anyone at school either because of bad anxiety and just being completely to myself without interactions at all is very difficult.
I can't talk to anyone and it sucks; whenever I do interact with anyone I'm bombarded with being told how much I'm hated and, of course whenever I say something back I'm told how awful I am and it's understanding my siblings reacted to me that way; I'll say I didn't even say anything bad and be told 'maybe not this time but before' I ask for specific examples and never get any.
Truly not a single person in this world likes me and I don't even like myself anymore. I have no one at all and can't do anything about it. I just want to die most of all the time summers coming up and I'm going to have to be alone for 3 whole months with people who ditest me without the break of school in-between my days.

Title: Help! Account got suspended just now for having an alt account (which was made few years ago)
So I got suspended for having an alt account and deemed to be "evading suspension". But the thing is I haven't been suspended before and this is the first time it happened on my account. Regarding the alt account, I made that for nsfw stuff I draw (my main account consist of sfw art, I run commissions and stuff there, etc.)
That alt account was made back in April 2020, and it was private until I made it public just a week ago (bc somehow I kinda need to gain traction there too).
Im kinda relying on my main since thats where I depend my allowances from, plus I worked so hard on gaining that following in the course of 3 years (not a lot, but ive worked hard on it).
So with that said, how do I appeal to them and make sure theyre going to get rid of that suspension on my account? Ive already changed my email on my alt and deleted my phone number on there, set it to private even. Ive already filed an appeal, but itll take a few days, and Im worried bc what if they permanently suspend my account because of a mistake?
