Well if it’s any consolation,I haven’t been to them in like 15 years, and all the others are male lol. All my doctors (which I never really fo to anyway except recent dental work) are actually childhood friends of my father, which actually kinda sucks because they’re all on the verge of retirement. Probably about time to find new ones anyway

Yeah I hear ya, and I did always have someone - usually a baseball coach, or sometimes even a friend’s older brother, something like that. Just for whatever reason, in professional settings, I could never click with male phychs.

Anyway, today… well, the piles of cash were a damn real possibility until Biden, but that seems unlikely now. But I’m doing alright, married, just bought my first house (my god, it’s only been a week and everything hurts lol), and the wife’s preggers with our first child (just found out it’s a male. I mean, I’m no biologist, but the blood work did say “male”), so things are pretty good.

Seriously. And imagine thinking “yea, NYU might be free, but it really isn’t good enough.” Wtf lol.

I feel bad talking shit because I like the poor bastard, but yea what a horrible decision that was.

“Just learned.”

Fucking cunt, you’re as guilty as the rest of them. It’s just now you’re realizing the narrative may switch just enough to require you to change teams. Fuck off

In NH, liberals are already leaving in droves because they genuinely think Free Staters are terrorists ruining the state. It’s fantastic

If you wanna through out John Locke then you gotta throw out the Constitution, too.

Honestly I’m fine with it - we had it more right with the articles of confederation, anyway. But just pointing out this huge fact that is likely contradictory to most people here

Though on the flip side, the best “psychiatrist” I ever had was my guitar teacher when I was like 12-15 or so (male). Obviously he wasn’t a certified psych or mental health person, but I got more mental help during those 30 minute lessons than anywhere else lol.

I guess that’s kinda the thing… I always knew the paid psychiatrists were all phony and only doing it because they were paid. For whatever reason, females were easier to talk to in that situation. Sure, my guitar teacher got paid, but he was/is a genuine friend too, even today/over 20 years later. Taught (and “psych’d”) all my best friends as well, came to our band practices, studio time, etc.

Not a split second of formal education and he helped me (and so many others) more than any professionals could ever dream of

I go back and forth; have full-on debates with myself. It’s generally how I determine what side of an issue/argument I land on

The free market certainly won’t solve all these issues. But if we had a free market in the first place, we’d have never had these issues to solve, either.

To be fair, as a guy, I found them to be the only ones I was comfortable with. Never had any psychotic issues or anything, but I did go for anxiety and mild depression when I was younger - a kind of teenage angst thing. I couldn’t talk to any male psychologists/psychiatrists. It just felt weird. Women were fine… was like talking to a mother or aunt. And I wasn’t really ever looking for advice anyway, just someone to talk and/or vent to since I sure as shit wasn’t going to do that with any family or friends.

I got it and honestly had no symptoms at all. Only knew I had it because my mom made me take a test before visiting my elderly grandparents.

I had something awful that was on and off for like 3 weeks in October ‘21 and assumed that was Covid, but after testing positive with no symptoms last month, now I’m not so sure

My crazy lefty SIL/BIL wouldn’t even let us come over and/or see the kids for over 2 damn years. Niece loves me too and I thought she’d forget who I was. Anyway, we went over 2 weeks ago so my wife could pick up maternity clothes from her, and they initially had it all planned so the kids would be napping and we wouldn’t see them, but they themselves would be fine (“since we’re vaccinated, it’s just the kids aren’t yet” Lol). They’ve been telling our niece that we’ve been sick… for 2 years. Anyway, they weren’t napping when we got there and they couldn’t contain their excitement. We ate outside with them at first (you know, to contain our germs lol), but eventually we were inside and my niece couldn’t stop hugging us. I think my SIL might have finally gotten over it that day. Perhaps these psychos all just need some exposure therapy

I went about my life like normal, barely ever wore a mask (sometimes it was unavoidable), got no vaccine, hugged people even more than normal, and I never got any symptoms. I tested positive (with zero symptoms) this past Easter because my mother made me check “just in case” since my grandparents are in their 90s. Pregnant wife tested positive the next day, and neither of us had any symptoms or any negative effects at all. If it weren’t for Easter weekend, I’d have no idea I even had it.

Yup. Built the park because he wanted a nice rec park that he’d personally bring his family/kids to. Up until then, every park had a kind of trashy Coney Island feel. Hell, they still all do- Disney was the exception

WOWIE!! A screenshot of a text and a photo of the news, now THAT'S definitive proof if I've ever seen it!!

My SIL/BIL are as lefty as it gets, and have a 4 year old. No, our niece is not "watching the horrors" and if she were, then I'd accuse her parents of being shitty parents. This is made up virtue signaling anyway, but I'm not sure why he'd share it, because if it were real, it just outlines what a shitty parent he and his kid's mother are

It's one of the biggest stories of the past 100 years, probably more — the fucking president's son — and the media won't even touch it. Unreal.

It's also fucking disgusting

Check out the mini-series “Sons of Liberty.” It’s actually really well done and about as historically accurate as you can get from an acted dramatization/not being a documentary. And this is coming from a historian that specializes in this era/topic.

John Adams (hbo) is also… pretty good, but very inaccurate. It’s based off of McCullough’s book, who gets a TON of undeserved praise. He does a good job making history books more narrative-driven and fun to read, but the fact is, he’s not a historian and it shows. Very much like Ken Burns. I’ve actually met him, too. Nice enough fellow, but he’s a journalist, not a historian, and in school we were actually told that if we ever referenced him, even once, in any paper, it’d be an instant fail lol. Still, it is a worthy watch. For that era though I definitely prefer Sons of Liberty.

Another that’s actually done surprisingly well is history channel’s “America: The Story of Us,” and also their “Men Who Built America” - they’re both docuseries, but also have dramatizations to keep it entertaining. They bring in everything from historians, to journalists, actors, and really anything else for commentary, but it’s written and done well

Early and just woke up, but I’ll at least respond to your random credit score drop:

This also happened to my wife and I, during the exact same week. We were told that, apparently, the way credit is calculated was changed. We both dropped about the same amount too, from around 750 to like 730 or something for absolutely no reason at all. Wish I could remember exactly what it was

Wow yea that’s crazy, they didn’t give me any issues at all. The closest thing to being a hassle, if I’d even call it that, was just my lender wanting to see where the crypto deposits came from (in other words, just proving those cash deposits were in fact from crypto).
