2023.06.06 04:31 -Night-Owl- Looking for a good store to buy from.
I have been trying to find a good firework store that's good bang for my buck. Western Virginia/ Eastern Tennessee/Kentucky area.
I've done a little bit of research and I haven't found any real good places that aren't super over priced compared to what I see in some videos. I just don't wanna overpay for something I can get for a better deal if I drive another hour away. lol

2023.06.06 02:50 wiccan-wisteria Help with Random Crying Fits?
I know this isn't directly Wicca-related but I'd like to hear what people in this community might have to say -
I have this weird thing where I'll randomly cry when observing what I consider to be the beautiful parts of humanity (like while at concerts/ballets/etc, or while watching a stranger play with a child, even the concept that mattress stores are geared to couples triggers crying sometimes, since I think it's so lovely that humans come in pairs).
I'd love to hear any spiritual interpretations (or mental health interpretations lol) you may have about this phenomenon! I appreciate any thoughts at all :)

2023.06.06 01:01 cheappanel Best Spot to Purchase a New Or Restored PC Or Work area PC On the web
The best spot to purchase a new or revamped PC online is from somebody who custom forms workstations, note pads, and personal computers. At the point when you are managing a PC developer that forms from the case up, you realize that you are getting undeniably more mastery than basically purchasing a nonexclusive, store loaded PC, that has your regularly restricted parts and programming
Purchasing a PC or work area PC online frequently makes an individual a piece apprehensive and they dread that they may not be getting the best confirmation that their buy will be all that is professed to be. Having firsthand information I can guarantee you I completely grasp that position. After you have made an acquisition of a PC or work area PC on the web and you can modify the stacked projects and programming, you'll at no point in the future purchase stock or conventional.
Whenever you can custom request a PC or work area PC on the web, you can outwit decisions in programming and pay just for the parts you truly need or use. Why pay for something that you would even not liked in any case?
The negative idea of the restored PC or work area is that it is not exactly new. Assuming that you purchased a vehicle that has a repaired tire, what you might get is a stopped tire, yet assuming that you purchase a restored PC or work area, you are getting a pc that had a part supplanted, not stopped. Stock laptop
Truly assuming that you purchase a new or restored PC or work area PC from eBay you want to check their business rating and client criticism score, however to purchase from a confidential person that forms or revamped PC or PCs, you are getting firsthand or involved insight and not a distributer who essentially hawks an item.
To expand your acquisition of a PC or work area PC, you should try to understand the additional worth of custom requesting your PC or work area PC. Picking things that depict how you use or apply your PC to your business or gaming use, you can have more than stock memory or speed remembered for your uniquely constructed PC.
Undoubtedly, the best spot to purchase a new or revamped PC or work area PC online is from an individual who highly esteems offering better compared to new, from a retail chain or a PC distributer.

2023.06.06 00:47 emilianaaaaaa Review of the HUB Residence (Studio)
It's basically as close as you can get to campus, which is nice. Safeway, HMart and a few other grocery stores are only a few blocks walk or a bus ride away. Close to the LRT too, which has its upsides, and (spoiler alert) its downsides. However, the HUB itself is a complete shitshow when it comes to food and the stores there either have a really limited selection, are super overpriced, or both. Kitchen: 3/10
The appliances and cabinetry are all definitely nice and pretty high quality, however there are some MAJOR flaws to the layout. Firstly, there isn't enough counter space to have a microwave unless you don't use a drying rack or otherwise leave the drying rack in the sink which means you have no room to use it. Second, to even open the fridge you need to stand in the bathroom, which isn't a dealbreaker, but still pretty odd and resulted in my bathroom mat collecting a lot of dirt over time. Thirdly, there also just isn't enough counter space for anything at all, beyond even a microwave. You're forced to use the stovetop to have room for your cuttingboard/etc. or otherwise take it into the bedroom and use the tiny table.
The oven is small and has a heating coil on both the top and the bottom. I have had two Pyrex dishes explode on me in the oven, and my assumption is this is due to the fact that it's basically not possible to get far enough away from the heating coil to not explode. Also, basically every time I use the oven it sets off my smoke detector at least 30 times. These have compounded in me never using an oven, on top of not having a microwave. So I just use my stovetop, which still sets off the smoke detector every couple uses for no discernable reason.
TL;DR these units were not really designed with any kind of even remotely serious cooking in mind. Bed/Bedroom: 4/10
Calling it a bed is pretty generous. It's basically a glorified gymnastics mat sitting on top of a metal cot. Twin/single bed sheets fit extremely loose, FYI. In terms of firmness I would say the mattress was on the firm side, but closer to the middle. Bed is squeaky, and there's also no real headboard so I had to line my bed up with a wall or else my pillow would slide off the bed 9,082,335 times every night.
There is only one light in the bedroom, and I unfortunately (spoiler alert) wasn't ever able to open my curtains. I will also say that most of the furniture in general is pretty low quality, aside from the armchair. I would genuinely consider the University's portrayal (https://www.ualberta.ca/residence/media-library/images/hub-floorplan-studio.jpg
) one of the greatest catfishes of all time, and am honestly convinced that this has to be in violation of some kind of false advertising law. Bathroom: 1/10
There isn't a fan in the bathroom and it is genuinely the stupidest idea I have ever seen executed. When I take a shower my entire kitchen gets covered in a light coating of condensation. It causes a lot of the metal in the bathroom (shower curtain, appliance covers) to rust very quickly. Not to mention, there are no drawers in the bathroom, only a cupboard under the sink. But why would you want to even put anything in the bathroom with how humid it gets there after a shower? Cleanliness: 2/10
Dust collected in my unit at an insanely fast rate. I think it was because the heaters haven't been cleaned in a long time. I admittedly have OCD and am a bit of a neat freak but I basically had to sweep every day or every-other day. And I would sweep up a sizeable amount of dust, too. Enough to fill maybe 1/4 of a dustpan.
It was dirty enough that I threw out a lot of stuff (doormat, bath mat, etc.) when moving out because there was no way I could get it clean again. Climate Control: 1/10
Virtually nonexistent. Through the winter my unit got below 15 C very regularly and now that Spring has hit I have been burning up to the point that I bought a box fan. I'm also on the bottom floor and can't open my window often for (spoiler alert) reasons, so that was also fun. I should also mention that apparently studio units don't even get ceiling fans? Mailbox: 2/10
UPS, FedEx, and Amazon will deliver packages to your stairwell door and it will be stolen in less than 15 minutes. Canada Post can deliver to the boxes however I have had maybe 1 of every 4 Canada Post packages ordered get lost for no discernable reason. I had to pay $30/mo for a UPS PO Box and use the Amazon Locker to survive.
Food deliveries like DoorDash, etc. are very hit or miss because the delivery drivers do not like to deliver onto campus because they don't understand the layout. Be prepared to have to deal with really angry and confused drivers calling or texting you. Or your food delivered to the wrong unit. And lots of late deliveries. Laundry: 4/10
Not enough machines for the sheer number of people living in the HUB. Be prepared to go at really inconvenient times if you want to do your laundry without having to wait an excessive amount of time. It's also pretty exhausting to have to carry laundry up three flights of stairs and all the way to the laundry room, as someone who lived pretty far from it.
The laundry room in general is pretty dirty. People will open your dryer or washer on accident and not restart the machine, pretty regularly. Lots of people leave their stuff in the machines for hours. It's also (spoiler alert) not 100% safe. Privacy: 6/10\
Pretty decent, though I have heard people living in the HUB say otherwise very adamantly
. I didn't have a neighbor above or next to me so probably take this with a grain of salt. My biggest complaint is that I hear tons of people in my stairwell very late at night who are just walking through it and talking very loudly. There seems to be virtually no sound insulation whatsoever on the side of the room that has the stairwell. Pests: 8/10\
Outside of a few dozen fruit flies over my 6 months of living in the HUB, I didn't have to deal with any. Expect that this may not be the case for you, but pray that it is. My understanding is if you live under or even near a restaurant you are going to have mice and ants pretty badly. However, I will also note that I absolutely have seen cockroaches, ants, etc. just chilling out on the mall-level. Safety: 1/10
OK so yeah, it's awful. I can't open my window because homeless people will come up to the window and ask me for food or money. Someone let a homeless man into the laundry room while I was alone in there and he came after me and I had to physically leave the room while leaving my stuff there for my own safety. I was approached by a human trafficker who tried stalking me for a week or two afterwards. 2-3 times I have heard people screaming (presumably on drugs or having some kind of episode) run into my stairwell to pull the fire alarm. There have been times I've been unable to enter or leave my apartment because people are literally just tripping out in the middle of the stairwell or in front of the door, etc. I've been followed home late at night from the bus stop/LRT station by people who were literally talking about mugging me. Price: 1/10
Completely unjustified and unaffordable. The unit and the experience of living here is generously worth about 2/3 of the current price, if that. They have manipulated studios into being a monthly lease in order to squeeze every single penny out of you for rent. Not to mention I had to pay $30/mo for a mailbox from UPS to be able to get packages, so it's even more expensive. Overall Rating: 3/10 \
= I am acknowledging that these rankings are very far outside of the norm of things I have heard about the HUB from other current and former residents.*

2023.06.05 22:03 CDTyphol_ For people looking to overhaul the Drumlin Diner:
There are quite a few mods for such a small and missile location. First we have "Believable Drumlin Diner (XBox)" which adds a small mutfruit farm, two beds inside the Diner and boards up the windows. Second is "Immersive Drumlin Diner" (my personal favourite Drumlin Diner mod) which completely overhauls the Diner and makes it look like a place people would actually live like as a minor trading post. It board's up the windows, removes the seats to make room for a small quarters to the left, and a little locked store room where you will trade with Trudy behind the counter (or Wolfgang, depending on how you complete the quest). Next is "TTP's Drumlin Diner (XBOX)" which adds two mattresses and a rest room with curtains. Finally we have "Better Drumlin Diner 2.0.0 xBox" which turns the Diner into a player home, with a small shack on the roof of the Diner, aswell as some terminals and a nearby trailer. This is to be used if you got a peaceful solution for the quest, as in the terminals and holotapes it shows how the friendship between Wolfgang and Simone improves. If you want additional NPCs there, there is a mod called "Doc Drumlin (Xbox)" which adds a doctor to the Diner, which stays friendly regardless of what side you choose for the quest. That is all, and I hope this helped you overhaul a otherwise bland and unimmersive area.

2023.06.05 22:03 pancyfalace Mattress Firm lied about the "free" adjustable base with a mattress purchase and says I need to buy it if I return the mattress. Any recourse?
Wife and I were testing mattresses in store, and being pregnant, she really liked the adjustable bases they had in the showroom. Salesperson said something about putting it in for free as promotional item. Told us he was able to do so, and although the mattress we picked out was overpriced, with the adjustable base, I was ok with the whole package.
When they delivered, the base that came with the bed was not what they showed us but a cheaper version with only a head incline, not the feet, which is what my wife was excited about.
When I tried to call and return it, the guy said the base is not returnable and I'd need to purchase it because it was a "promotional item". In the fine print of the papers they showed us (after the sale) he's right. There's no way around it and they can do it because they can. But we were mislead into what we were getting and had we known, never would have bought in the first place.
They never gave us the opportunity to review the purchase items in detail and kept trying to upsell things during purchase, so I didn't ask to see the specific items.
It's probably just an expensive learning experience, but I'm curious what sort of recourse there is.
Would credit card company possibly be able to dispute at least the part of the adjustable base because we were lied to?
Edit: We tried to return it all because we weren't entirely happy with the mattress either.

2023.06.05 20:10 mothenthusiast Advice for washing and deodorizing skunk from plushies?
TLDR: Plushie collection of about 100 got skunked. How do I wash them safely?
I'm a pretty big plushie-fanatic, I casually collect lots of different lines and they're really important to me. I store them in my room: on display, on my bed, in baskets; there's probably just shy of 100 in here. Unfortunately, a week back my dog got sprayed by a skunk and ran right to my room in her fear and confusion. The smell is everywhere, I've had to remove and wash (multiple times) all my clothes, spray down all the walls, wash my mattress, it's terrible and it's continuous. The worst part though is that my plushies have absorbed the smell. I've had them sitting out in the sun for a few days which has helped a little but I'm starting to worry about colour fading from the sun. I'm really worried about washing them, I've never done it before and there are just so many to get through, but it's pretty clear that they need it. Some are very well-loved and fragile, some are collectors items, some are pretty big, all from a wide variety of brands. Although it sounds silly, they are a really, really big comfort to me. I'm very attached to them and I'm terrified of harming them or shortening their lifespan. If you have any advice, instructions, or experience washing your plushies, please share. I hope you and your little guys are doing well <3

2023.06.05 19:58 Sweaty_Wishbone Need help finding a similar soft mattress- side sleeper with neck and back pain
I've been doing research and shopping for a mattress for......a few weeks. I have a budget of $1,000 and am sleeping on a 30 y/o twin posturepedic i've had since I was 5, lol.
I'm a side sleeper About 150 lbs, Male Problems: GERD, Neck and back pain, definitely need to keep spine aligned and reduce pressure points. Budget is as close to $1k or less.
Priorities: comfort, restorative sleep, health, durability, flexibility to exchange/return if it doesn't work out. I don't have to have adjustable base rtm.
I found what I think may be okay at Sleep Outfitters Sealy Posturepedic Kenaston II Soft 13.5" Euro PillowTop
. Negotiating, i can get it, the foundation and frame for $1100. The only problem is there are no returns at this store. They offer a 120 day comfort guarantee with $99 exchange fee and store credit only.
Can anyone recommend a similar mattress? Any other retailers you recommend?
I am trying to figure out what other beds are equivalent at an online store/retailer who has a 90+ day guarantee.
I have the Sealy part # 52814251
Appreciate any help. https://www.sleepoutfitters.com/p10-configuration.html

2023.06.05 18:27 titleistnole Seeking mattress recommendation
FYI - We live an hour away from our closest store so I'd like some feedback from the group. Long time stalker, first time poster.
We're making a trip this week and will be buying a new mattress. I've narrowed it down to the Casper Select 12" (item # 1271390) and the Novaform ComfortGrande Plus 14" (item # 1413200). They both have received great overall reviews. I'm familiar with the Casper name but not Novaform.
Price is similar since the Casper is on sale. Looking for one that is closer to medium firmness as the wife can't sleep on firm. I realize one's perspective on the firmness is subjective but wanted to get thoughts.

2023.06.05 17:36 hnqn1611 Here's What Happens When You Sleep
| || |https://preview.redd.it/csjztp77y74b1.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=02be7e1ab7538cd7bea04bc690d20a1624f2bb22 Here’s What Happens When You Sleep submitted by hnqn1611 to TopPersonality [link] [comments]
We go to sleep every night to recharge and prepare ourselves for the coming day. But most people don’t know what happens to their body while they sleep. They tend to think of sleep as a restful, inactive and quiet time. However, this is not quite the case… and if you’ve ever wondered what happens while you’re in la-la land, keep watching! Here are 15 things that happen to you while you sleep.
Number 1 - Your Body Slows Down When you sleep, some parts of your body, such as your immune system, go into overdrive. The rest however, slows down. Your body temperature drops, your blood pressure lowers, and your breathing rate goes way down. Your brain waves slow down as well, with occasional sudden bursts, and your heart rate lowers to a slow steady pace. Even your kidneys slow down! This is particularly important, because it keeps you from having to pee while you’re asleep. This is why in the morning, you usually have to pee, and the color of your urine is so dark.
Number 2 - You Become Paralyzed You probably heard of sleep paralysis, but the body becoming paralyzed doesn't just happen to people with this often frightening condition. When we sleep, we hit a point of rest called REM, which stands for Rapid Eye Movement, and it's the level of sleep where most of our dreams happen. During this phase, your body becomes unable to move. You freeze up, in complete muscle paralysis! People with sleep paralysis just happen to experience this while they are still conscious, which can be incredibly terrifying. But why do we do this? Apparently, to keep us safe. Since dreams occasionally make us move around if they're particularly vivid, we could potentially hurt ourselves. To keep us from harming ourselves and others, our brain produces two strong chemicals which mix together and send signals to our body to stop moving.
Number 3 - Your Eyes Move As I just mentioned, during the REM stage your muscles become paralyzed. However, during this part of sleep, there's a part of you that's always moving, and that's your eyes! The brain, during this area of rest, acts and looks like it's awake, even though you're in deep sleep. Your eyes also act like you're awake, and dart back and forth, moving and looking everywhere. However, the whole time this happens, your eyelids remain closed, but others can actually see the eye movement under your lids!
Number 4 - Your Sense Of Smell Stops Working Again, when you're in deep sleep, certain parts of your body slow down, and even stop working. One of the things that stops is your sense of smell! This means, that in the deepest parts of sleep, you won’t notice if your partner lets a stinky fart loose, or if something else starts smelling in the house… Unfortunately, this can also have a potentially dangerous effect. For example, if your house were to catch fire, your dreamy slumber might keep you from realizing you're in serious danger. This is why it’s so important to test your smoke detectors regularly!
Number 5 - Your Throat Gets Narrower While you sleep, the muscles of your throat relax, your tongue falls backward, and your throat becomes narrow and “floppy.” As you breathe, the walls of the throat begin to vibrate - generally when you breathe in, but also, to a lesser extent, when you breathe out. These vibrations lead to the characteristic sound of snoring. The narrower your airway becomes, the greater the vibration and the louder your snoring. If you have issues with your tonsils or sinuses, the snoring gets even worse.
Number 6 - You Randomly Flail Around When your body isn't kept paralyzed while you enter REM sleep, it sometimes likes to move around. And no, that's not just talking about sleep walking or sleep talking… Instead, many people experience periodic limb movement as they dream. This happens specifically when you're entering very deep sleep or dreaming about something particularly vivid. It results in sudden, uncontrollable flexing and retracting of your muscles, which makes you flail and kick. This can be particularly problematic for anyone sleeping next to you, and can result in bruises if you're sleeping in a rather confined space.
Number 7 - You Are Jerked Awake Have you ever felt like you were falling, or suddenly jerked awake for no reason at all? This is actually a natural and common part of falling asleep, and most of us have experienced it. The involuntary muscle twitches in our limbs or through our entire bodies are called hypnic jerks or sleep starts. And no one really knows what causes them… Some believe that your body is preparing for the changes it will go through when you’re asleep. While others believe that your brain confuses falling asleep with actually falling and tries to keep you awake.
Number 8 - Your Brain Goes Into Cleaning Mode Your brain is active both day and night, but sometimes it needs a little time to tidy up the place, and sleep is the best time to do that. Studies show that waste removal systems in the brain happen to be more active as you sleep, particularly in REM sleep. This means that the brain is better at clearing away toxic byproducts that might build up and cause health problems. During this time, your brain also sorts and stores information accumulated during the day. It tosses out things it believes we don't need to remember, and keeps what we do.
Number 9 - You May Hear Explosions As strange as this sounds, some people hear explosions when they are asleep, like a crash or a bang that sounds almost like a gunshot. This condition has been named exploding head syndrome. It is not a painful experience, but it can be extremely frightening. It usually happens to people above the age of 50, as they are drifting off to sleep.
Number 10 - You Shed Your Skin We don't shed our skin like snakes, but during the night, our skin does start to fall off. Every night, your body continues to generate new skin cells, and old skin cells simply fall off. Every minute you sleep, you're losing tens of thousands of skin cells, which have to go somewhere… and they often go into your mattress and pillow. If you don't wash your sheets and pillows regularly, those skin cells can build up in a pretty horrifying way. It's even been estimated that one third of your pillow's weight is made up entirely of your dead skin cells!
Number 11 - You Get Aroused Throughout REM sleep, your brain is more active because you are dreaming. Because of this, it requires more oxygen to work, and as a result, you end up with extra oxygen flowing to all parts of your body, including your private parts! Both men and women get aroused while they sleep, and studies indicate that your body does this in order to prevent itself from going into a vegetative state, like a coma. By reaching a state of arousal, your body ensures that it can reverse the effects of sleep and actually wake up when it needs to, thereby maintaining some connection with the real world.
Number 12 - Your Body Restores Itself While you are in the deepest stages of sleep, your body produces a hormone known as the human growth hormone. This hormone is necessary for the growth of your muscles, bones, and tissues when you are young; and then for repair and restoration once you stop growing. So, there is some science behind the concept of beauty sleep!
Number 13 - You Get Taller Every Night During the day, the pressures of the world weigh heavily on your shoulders. Literally. You have discs in your spine that act as cushions between bone pieces in your back. During the day, they get slightly compressed by constant movements and the weight of your body. During the night, they rehydrate and decompress, making your spine slightly longer. By the time you wake up, you'll have gained a little bit of height! This is especially true if you like to lie on your side, as it takes the weight off your back.
Number 14 - You Make Up Crazy Stories Some people can’t remember their dreams in the morning, while others wake up remembering a bizarre sequence of events that often seem real. Many dreams are based in reality, with elements of the person’s thoughts or the events of the previous day featuring prominently in what they dream about. Some people even have recurring dreams, where they experience the same dream either in a short period of time, or over several years. Psychologists have offered several theories to explain why we dream, but so far there is no consensus.
Number 15 - Sleep Texting Sleep texting is the new sleepwalking, and it’s a growing phenomenon in which people (usually adolescents and young adults) send text messages while asleep. Researchers say it’s being classified as a parasomnia, putting it in the same class of sleep disorders as sleepwalking, night terrors, and bed-wetting. For many sleep texters, the disorder is just as embarrassing as all the rest, especially when the recipient is anyone other than a trusted friend or family member… Have you ever done this? We’re curious to know! Also, are there any other weird things that happen to us when we sleep that should be added to this list? Let us know in the comments below!
2023.06.05 13:35 Brightclaw431 Can you return an opened mattress?
I bought a mattress, one of those rolled up mattresses in the giant plastic baggy.
I don't really like it, and I have the receipt, can I bring it back to the IKEA store I bought it at and exchange it for a different mattress there?
I threw away the original bag it came in like an idiot.

announce its Entropy as a Service system, code named QxEAAS. Ballard & First Mode sign order for 60 additional hydrogen fuel cell modules for zero-emission mining trucks - BLDP.to
Entropy as a Service (EaaS) is a ground-breaking concept that involves a service provider offering on-demand entropy by means of a cloud network. Entropy, which in this context refers to the degree of randomness or uncertainty in a system, plays a vital role in cryptography where random numbers are used to generate cryptographic keys. To achieve high quality, QeM's random number generator (QRNG2) utilizes the principles of the quantum electron tunnel effect, to produce truly random numbers that are inherently unpredictable and uncorrelated. By seamlessly incorporating this technology into the QxEaaS system, QeM fully leverages the advantages of QRNG2. This integration guarantees that QeM's Sentry-Q cryptography platform benefits from the maximum levels of entropy, thereby bolstering its resistance against increasingly sophisticated and frequent cyberattacks.

2023.06.05 06:38 mr_greenmash Why are there so many mattress stores in the US?
There seems to be an overwhelming number of them, compared to anywhere else in the world, that I've been. Most other places I've lived also don't have mattress stores as such, but more like furniture retailers sell mattresses and beds.

2023.06.05 05:47 EzekialX Vulturebeard: Bad Roomies Part 3
Part 1: https://www.reddit.com/ReddXReads/comments/13lfqkw/vulturebeard_the_legbeard_that_ruined_roomies_fo Part 2: https://www.reddit.com/ReddXReads/comments/13u79ht/vulturebeard_bad_roomies_part_2/ Hi again, it’s the bunny. I’ve just barely stepped into Reddx’s discord, but Ezekial is still posting this saga for me so thank you, Z. Trigger warning: This will deal with a lot of aspects relating to child neglect (and possible abuse) and Kid being ignored or taking the brunt of Vulture’s anger. Sorry for the spoiler as well, but I think we saw this coming, too (especially if you’ve seen Z talk in the discord). Don’t push yourself to read if you’re not okay with these concepts. The Cast List Bunny (author)
: 33, female. Recovering lifelong doormat slowly building a spine. Neuro spicy gym rat with major depressive disorder, general anxiety disorder, and most recently diagnosed with ADHD. Unfortunately, very familiar with surviving trauma. Z (poster)
: My partner. 31, nonbinary (they/them), also neuro spicy with depression, anxiety, OCD, BPD, autism, and also familiar with lifelong trauma. One Liner Beard (OLB)
: 33, male, neuro spicy with ADHD and depression. His nickname here comes from the fact that in messenger, he usually has one-word replies like “oof” or “mmm” as an acknowledgement he had seen the message but has nothing further to contribute. VultureBeard (Vulture)
: 30, female, neuro spicy and disabled with multiple conditions. She has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, POTs (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), autism, depression, anxiety, chronic migraines, but also possibly a list of things that may or may not be real. The star of this unfortunate circus. Her name comes from how she always pops up when I’m cooking food, complaining about how hungry is and how she’s unable to cook. Kid
: 3. Female. OLB and Vulture’s child. Likely neuro spicy like we all are, but she’s also only 3 years old. Slightly speech delayed and not potty trained yet. Take a deep breath. Now take another one. This chapter will likely make you mad.
Chapter Three: “Do You Want Bologna?” Or, Vulture as a Parent Imagine this
: it’s eight in the morning and you’re cozy in bed. The blankets are warm, and you hit snooze on your early alarm so you can sleep in before you have to get up.
Your peace is shattered by a toddler crying, followed by the screech of, “WHAT!”
or “GET DOWN FROM THERE!”
Yeah, welcome to The Life
Vulture has a messed-up sleep schedule. It’s partially because Kid doesn’t sleep soundly through the night, but it’s also because Vulture’s sleep schedule is essentially flipped backwards to where she stays up all night and wants to sleep during the day. Vulture says it’s “insomnia” but sometimes she’s up late gaming with Discord friends or watching anime. I couldn’t tell you which issue it was day by day. Sometimes if I go to sleep late, I hear Kid crying from her room because she had night terrors or had potty troubles. Sometimes I hear OLB and Vulture awake shuffling between rooms in the hallway.
Because of this, Vulture and mornings don’t mesh well. Kid is usually put in her room for bedtime around 7 PM, usually with her tablet to keep her company and either give her something to watch, or to play white noises for sleeping. Kid does not have a real sleep routine as well. She’s just kind of shut in her room. Sometimes there’s a bit of a routine like winding her down with chocolate milk and giving her a countdown of “okay, ten more minutes and then bedtime,” but for the most part she just does not want to go to bed. Bedtimes are met with a lot of crying, and the beardy parents telling us that she will be upset for a bit.
Kid has an attempted daily schedule, if Vulture is awake enough. Theoretically
- 9 AM: Awake and watching TV while Vulture is on her computer in the same room
- 1 PM: In the room for naptime (but it’s usually play time)
- 4 PM: Free to run around while dad is home
- 7 PM: Bedtime (but she’s usually playing then too)
But a lot of times, that schedule gets thrown out of whack depending on if Vulture gets up on time. When she sleeps in, Kid is in her room from 7 PM to 1 PM. Sometimes Kid will make a fuss to make Vulture get up earlier than 1 PM, and Vulture will be grouchy because she “went to bed at four in the morning” because she either had “insomnia” (read: gaming or watching anime) or because Kid wouldn’t sleep. Or Vulture will be up to take care of Kid and make sure she is in a clean pull up and has eaten. Then she shuts her into her room and goes back to sleep. Sometimes if Kid is too much of a handful, Vulture will say, “It’s 12:45. That’s close enough to 1.” And put Kid in the room because that’s close enough to nap time.
Sometimes because Kid won’t go to sleep, she’ll still be up at 9 PM and that breaks her schedule too. A lot of times, it works out that OLB is the “fun” parent while he’s home, because he’s up at 4 AM to leave for work by 6 and doesn’t come home until between 4 or 5 PM. Then she spends time with him while he’s home.
There’s also a child lock on the inside of Kid’s bedroom door, those doorknob covers that you have to push and turn, so she can’t open the door and wander around unsupervised. I was originally the one who suggested the child lock, back when she was younger, and they didn’t have the secondary child gate they currently do now that’s stored in the garage. Since then, with her potty training and Vulture’s likewise awful sleep schedule, I’ve suggested more than once that they take the door handle blocker off and put up the second kiddy gate they have to block the living room and kitchen off, so she can get up if she needs to, but the child lock still remains. At most, she would have access to their room, since it doesn’t have a kiddy lock on it. Me and Z’s bedroom has a child lock on it, as well as the bathroom door. She could freely wander between her room and her parents’ room that way.
I hear Kid playing in her room by herself a lot
, squealing and having fun and playing pretend. Or moving her furniture around. And no, the furniture is not secured to the wall, so she can move her bed around the room. I’ve also told OLB and Vulture they needed to make sure she can’t topple it and chain it to the wall but, yeah, that hasn’t been dealt with.
When Kid really needs attention, she will cry and wail. And I mean wail
. The two beardy parents don’t have baby monitors or anything that can hear into her bedroom, so she has to wail loudly enough to be heard through the walls. Luckily, the house has thin walls. Because of her early bedtime, she’s often awake early in the morning. Sometimes Vulture will respond, sometimes Vulture won’t wake up until around noon. Yes, that means Kid is by herself a lot.
Kid is a bubbly three-year-old. She loves it when Z and I give her attention, which admittingly isn’t as often as I would like to give her. With my own Depression™
, I spend so much time fighting to just gather enough mental energy to be a productive human. Despite me wandering in a mental fog, Kid remains a bright spot in my day. I met her when she was a fresh baby bean just barely out of the hospital, and I immediately fell in love. Since then, I’ve seen her grow almost her whole life, except for when they were all in north Texas. She has blue eyes and brown hair that will curl on its own. She loves dinosaurs, Baby Shark, Octonauts, and occasionally whatever anime the parents are watching. Don’t ask me how many times I’ve heard the Baby Shark song. I don’t want it stuck in my head for another solid week.
She used to watch a lot of Ms. Rachel’s Songs For Little videos, because originally Vulture wanted Kid to learn sign language to help communicate. I’ve rarely seen Vulture attempt to upkeep the sign language lessons. She did at one point. I think after Kid started becoming more vocal, the idea was dropped. I have heard some of the familiar videos so often that even I learned the kid’s songs, but I guess that’s also part of the collateral when dealing with kid’s media.
Kid usually exists in a half-dressed state, usually just wearing a pull up and that’s it. Unfortunately, because Vulture is so hard on her tangles when she tries to brush her hair, Kid doesn’t like hair care and will fight being brushed. Her hair used to exist in a perpetual state of being matted with at least one major knot, until Vulture’s mom ended up giving her a bath and getting her to stay still enough to endure the brushing, even with the wailing of a protesting Kid going strong. Her hair was then cut to make it more manageable, and strangely, that fixed a lot of the matting problems.
Kid is let out of her room when Vulture wakes up, usually needing a diaper change. At three years old, Kid is not potty trained yet. Just from what I’ve heard from my bedroom, it sounds like OLB and Vulture are finally starting to step up on potty training, but it’s been an uphill fight. I know a few of my other parent friends have had an extremely hard time potty training their kid. I’m not a parent, so I don’t actually know how challenging it can be. I do know though that it shouldn’t sound like the toilet is some kind of punishment for peeing in her cloth panties that they’re trying to switch her to. Or, that they try to get her to sit on the toilet when she has no interest in it and she ends up throwing a tantrum. Unfortunately, without much context, that’s how some bathroom trips sound.
Kid wears pull-ups to bed and the cloth underwear during the day, or sometimes just pull-ups. They’re trying to teach her how to recognize when her body has the potty urge, which she still doesn’t quite get right now. She has literally peed on the tile floor through her cloth undies. Vulture messaged the house chat once saying, “Kid just lifted her leg while in the rolling chair and peed all over the floor.
You know. Like a dog
With the potty-training trouble and Kid only sometimes in pull-ups that can contain her mess, Z and I don’t let her into our room as often as we’d like to, because she doesn’t recognize when she has to go. It sucks, because Kid adores spending time with us and our room has cool animals, like my retired psychiatric service dog and our three ferrets. She loves the ferrets. But if we spend time out in the living room with everyone, Z’s patience tends to have a shorter fuse because they can’t stand Vulture (that’s also another tale I have
). We’re also stuck out in the general mess of the living room if we are out there with her. It’s either the general mess that toddlers make, spilled food, and general filth. The best times we’ve had spending time with Kid is just chilling in our room as she ooh’s and ahh’s
over the ferrets or watches TV with us. Z and I quote SpongeBob line by line daily, and she has watched some of the show with us.
I feel awful about shutting Kid out so much, when I see the way Vulture interacts with her. On Vulture’s bad days (if you read the previous post, that’s almost every day), she acts like Kid is a chore. She will snap at Kid, act like Kid is choosing to act out of maliciousness and make “tired mom” jokes that sound like she just flat out doesn’t like Kid. When I had liquor in the fridge, Vulture would ask if she could take a shot because, “I need it. She’s trying me today.
Some choice quotes talking down about the kid:
“I’m being hard on her because she’s not using her words. Like I know she can. She just doesn’t want to.
” This was what Vulture said to me after Kid kept trying to get her attention and wouldn’t explain what she wanted. Kid was just making noises at her and getting frustrated. Vulture full on shouted, “WHAT!
” at her, then turned to me to try and explain why she shouted.
“This is the bad part about being a mom. She’s not letting me do anything right now.
” This was said after Vulture cleaned her desk and was attempting to watch YouTube videos and play her Switch.
On her good days, Vulture will be that kind of smiling parent that does some art activities and engages with Kid in a way that’s more than just screaming. They color together. She offers Kid choices so Kid can have some control over what happens in her day, like, “Do you want bologna or fruit?
” It has helped Kid become more vocal and even though she’s still speech delayed, she talks more and has a bigger vocabulary.
The house has a different atmosphere when OLB is home, compared to when Vulture is just watching Kid by herself. I’ve told OLB that I think Vulture is burned out. Her entire life is her disabilities and being a mom. She only has friends on Discord really, and OLB had to push her to start talking to them again just so she had someone to socialize with.
Old Doormat me pitied her at the beginning of our friendship. I tried being her friend. I tried to include her and Kid in a lot of things. My own mental health, my daily obligations, my gym schedule, and just me changing rapidly since 2020 altered my life, exhausted me, and left me unable to deal with Vulture talking a million miles a minute, info dumping about whatever she’s currently doing every single time I run into her. And as I shed my doormat self, I started seeing her clearly.
I told OLB once that if Vulture is truly burned out or if her health problems are causing that much trouble, Kid might need daycare or another caregiver to help. OLB is aware but can’t afford other care. He’s working for bottom of the barrel pay at a full-time job. Most days after work, he just wants to zone out to his own games in front of his computer but has to step in and parent both Vulture and Kid, because Vulture often needs help organizing through executive dysfunction to do something. Or, because she will call for his help.
There was one time where Kid climbed on top of her, and Vulture called for OLB – who was in the same room – to pull Kid off her. There are quite a few times where Vulture calls for OLB for help with Kid, and I’ve heard him say that he’s also busy too. One time he asked, “Why are you asking for my help when you’re closer?
Z has offered to look after Kid at times because they don’t mind Kid being in our room or just hanging out. She has hung out with us when I also have the mental energy and the room is clean enough to accommodate a toddler crawling on everything. The problem that we both see is that our stepping in isn’t a full solution. She can spend a few hours with us, but ultimately after, she goes right back to Vulture and OLB. Vulture is the one who acts like being a parent is a chore.
There are times that OLB has snapped at Vulture for the way she gets on to Kid, emphasizing, “She’s just a child.
” Their parenting styles are like looking at two entirely different planets and trying to find similarities. OLB is very much into the gentle parenting side of Tik Tok. He talks about breaking generational trauma. He’s usually gentle with Kid, explaining why she’s not allowed to do things like stand on top of her highchair or why I’m too busy to play with her as I’m zooming around the house in and out repeatedly some days. He has talked her down from meltdowns and keeps his voice even to where she can’t bounce off him to amplify her tantrums. He spanks her, but as a last resort, and then also talks to her about why the punishment happened. She will wail through everything and likely isn’t fully listening, but ultimately, I see him trying to work with her. He very rarely loses his actual temper with her.
Vulture is the total opposite. She yells at Kid, spanks with no hesitation and doesn’t explain why. One of Kid’s favorite games to play is “Block the door
” when I’m trying to get through the house. She will block my bedroom door, cling to me, then circle around me as Vulture or OLB tries to distract her or lure her away by asking “do you want chocolate
” or some other treat. Sometimes Kid just likes to play ring-around-the-rosie around my legs, as her parents try to grab her. I try to make it fun and seem like I’m not mad at her, because I’m never actually mad at her for blocking my way. Usually, I’m just in the middle of some arbitrary task or running an errand or coming back from the gym with my one remaining brain cell barely hanging on for dear life. I try to engage with her and play it off as a game because she’s not actually doing anything wrong.
Vulture has lured her away with chocolate and treats, with offers of food, with trying to get her to pick a show to watch. If that fails, she will come and fetch Kid by hand. One time involved yanking her physically off me and spanking her on the bare bottom because Kid was happy playing a game instead of listening.
The bare bottom is a thing, too. Because Kid used to live in soiled diapers for much longer than she was supposed to, she had constant diaper rash that she had to see the doctor for sometimes. She also didn’t want OLB or Vulture to change her diapers and would scream when it was diaper change time. I don’t blame her. The diaper rash hurt, and Vulture wasn’t exactly gentle with changing. Kid bled sometimes with the changings. So now, sometimes Kid will be dressed like Donald Duck in only a top to air out her bottom. Or because now, with the cloth undies, she will pee straight through them, and they just let her air out after.
Kid always smells a bit like pee. So does her room. And her bedding. After I pointed out that her bedding straight out of the dryer smelled like urine, OLB went about cleaning the washing machine with a machine cleaner, and bought scent beads to help cut the smell, after I told him that a little vinegar in the wash load will cut the smells down. Now her bedding doesn’t smell so much like urine, but it’s still there.
Her bedroom frequently smells like a public bathroom. It always looks like her bedroom has been turned upside down, with toys everywhere, her bed pushed to the middle of the room, the mattress on the floor. Books she was given were shredded, even the cardboard ones. There was straight up garbage left in her room because she was given food to eat there that had wrappers. It usually takes Vulture a full day of cleaning to get the room organized when she had the energy to do it, but she usually sanitizes with just a baby wipe, if she does at all. Maybe a pet cleaner sometimes.
There was one time where I was letting the dogs outside and I stepped in a puddle on the tile floor. That was when I realized that it was a pee puddle and Kid’s cloth underwear was dripping. I asked Vulture to clean the puddle up. When she asked to use my steam mop, she didn’t clean the cloth pad after, so when I turned the mop on next, it smelled like hot, steamed urine. I had to clean the mop pad off myself and rinse the pee out of it. When Kid again peed in front of the TV in her cloth undies, I told OLB that if they’re going to use my steam mop to make sure that the mop pad is rinsed off or it will smell like pee the next time it’s used, but he said he was just going to use his mop and bucket. Thankfully.
Because of the diet that OLB and Vulture has, Kid also eats like them. She gets a lot of macaroni, a lot of random odds and ends like pieces of bread, baggies of cheerios, sometimes fruit and vegetables. Lots of chicken nuggets and frozen instant food. Occasionally, Kid will have an interest in vegetables she sees us cook with or that she’s never had. Like once she insisted that she wanted to eat canned peas, until she tasted them. She chewed on a lettuce leaf and put it down, then asked for another one because she wanted to eat something, and it looked tasty to her.
The two halves of the household make separate foods now and keep out of each other’s food, but sometimes Vulture will give Kid some of the food I cooked because Kid saw my spaghetti noodles in a bowl and insisted on having them by way of tantrum. Instead of asking me if it’s okay (which obviously, I’d say yes, Kid can have some), Vulture just gave her my food and then told me after. Maybe I’m just projecting my own frustration, but it feels like Vulture uses Kid as a shield sometimes, to get food. Unless I have a specific purpose for food like what I put in my meal prep containers, I wouldn’t say no to Kid.
Kid’s diet makes me worried for her as she grows up. OLB is big and tall, over 6 feet tall and over 300lbs. They aren’t an active family at all. Kid drinks soda when they get fast food. She eats as much processed food as Vulture. Right now, she’s growing like a weed and is tall and actually has some power in her tiny limbs, which is most noticeable when she climbs you like a ladder, but her parents are gamers that just sit around. Her own screen time is almost as lengthy as theirs is.
I worry about Kid, constantly. Z does too. We have theorized calling CPS, or trying to adopt her, or just getting her away from Vulture. We have thrown around ideas about talking to OLB and convincing him that Vulture isn’t a good person for Kid. A lot of it has stayed in theory because the anxious part of me is still afraid to make life-altering waves like that. I second-guess and gaslight myself into realizing how bad things are, but then telling myself, maybe I’m just blowing it out of proportion. Maybe it's just something they have to handle. Maybe it’s something a first-time parent needs to learn. Maybe Vulture just isn’t feeling good that day. Maybe, maybe, maybe
It’s a leftover of the doormat I used to be, and I know that. The tiny fragment of anxiety that tells me I’m blowing things up into too big a deal. The tiny fragment that escaped a toxic marriage and just wants peace after arguing every single day. The side that hates confrontation.
Maybe I’m just a plain ol’ coward. I don’t know yet. I just know my patience is running thinner with every passing day
I don’t think I could convince OLB to dump Vulture. From what I’ve seen on the surface, they’re not openly affectionate. Vulture complains all the time that OLB doesn’t give her any physical affection, and she (unfortunately
) tells me when they’re intimate, which doesn’t sound often. They almost look like they could be friends that are co-parenting. She calls him her husband when they’re out in public, and OLB has stated that he doesn’t want anything to happen to her, because he doesn’t want a single parent. I assume at the very least that he does love her, even though he sounds exhausted all the time. Z and I wonder if maybe he feels trapped.
OLB is good at asking for help if he needs it, although he hates being a burden to others. He will speak up if Vulture needs a ride to a doctor’s office, and he forgot to leave the car seat at home. I’ve driven to his work to pick it up after he messaged me asking if I could. They ask his family to babysit Kid if they want to go out and just have a good date or see a movie together. They are clearly capable of asking for help.
This is just an acceptable standard for both, or at least that’s the way it seems to me. Sometimes, I don’t truly know if OLB is aware of what Vulture does while he’s at work. He didn’t know that she used his 11-year-old dog as a vacuum cleaner to clean up spilled table scraps until I pointed it out and then he pieced together why his dog wasn’t losing weight on a reduced kibble diet. Sometimes I have pointed out things to him that he might not notice in the house chat.
I started keeping a log in Google Docs about things I notice, and Z and I talk about it in discord, so it’s not heard by ears that are too close to our bedroom. The log started helping me see that I’m not just blowing out of proportion and that in turn helped me come here to reddit. As a former doormat in recovery, I still have to tell myself that it’s okay to realize that something is wrong, and that I may need help getting my voice to speak up.
I haven’t worked since 2017, when my mental health took a sharp nosedive. Z is currently looking for work. Both of us are home all day exposed to Vulture and how she treats Kid. With my own daily tasks, errands, struggling with mental health, there’s still a side of me that berates me that I need to be taking care of Kid. Getting her up, making sure she eats. Pestering Vulture to get up. This is also where I tangle with the former doormat that still lives in me, because one, I don’t want to enable Vulture to get even worse. With someone taking the burden off of her, that gives her more free time to just sit back and game. It isn’t my job to make sure that Vulture is a good parent, yet somehow, I feel like it’s also my fault that she’s as bad as she is while I sit by the wayside and just talk about her behind her back. There are times where I have pestered OLB through discord about Kid crying, or how Kid is trying to beat the door down, or asking if Vulture is up for the day because I haven’t seen her up at three in the afternoon.
I started speaking up when I noticed something that’s off. I call this the “cheese incident
.” We had a block of cheese that was cut in the wrapper and not in anything else, so the exposed end got all hard and inedible. I cut it off and threw it away. Vulture made her way into the kitchen because Kid saw me cutting cheese and wanted some. Vulture
: Who threw away that cheese? (SHE PICKS IT UP OUT OF THE TRASH CAN) Me
: Yeah, it’s got that hard bit Vulture
: So? I know someone who will eat it. (She calls Kid over) Me
: But it was in the trash. Vulture
: It’s okay, I cut off the part that was touching the trash. Me
: Dude, that’s fucked up. Vulture
: (hesitating now) Should I not? Me
: That’s probably going to make her sick again. (Kid has been sick back-to-back at this point) Vulture
: Okay, then I won’t. (To this day, I don’t know if she threw the cheese away or ate it herself, and I’m afraid to ask)
That was the point where I started pointing out that what she’s doing is problematic. It’s a slow process, but it’s helped me put the doormat side of me away again. I’ve explained to Vulture that Kid isn’t crying to be malicious, she just can’t express what she wants. Especially with Kid’s speech delay!
Kid gets frustrated fast when adults don’t understand her, and the wailing begins. There’s no maliciousness behind it, just frustration. Or how Kid doesn’t like being told “no” because she doesn’t always understand why. Strangely, every time I call something out, she doesn’t really have much of a fight against it. But why am I having to say it in the first place?
There’s little things that just rub me the wrong way in how they interact. Sometimes Vulture will call Kid over in the same way you’d call a dog. Repeatedly
. Sometimes Vulture, in a state of migraine or other illness-related grouchiness will scream at her “Leave me alone!
” and OLB will have to fetch Kid. One time, Z told me that Vulture outright mocked her crying by making her own crying noise.
What’s awful to watch in person is that when Vulture’s mom or siblings are over, Vulture is suddenly a doting mom who isn’t perpetually exhausted or loudly complaining about how her “everything
” hurts. She talks in an overly sweet voice to Kid. It unsettles me with how two-faced it seems. OLB, Vulture, and Kid go have dinner with OLB’s family every Sunday evening, and I can’t help but wonder how two-faced she is there, as well. Some of OLB’s family doesn’t like Vulture to begin with.
Slowly, I am losing patience at how Vulture behaves, especially with the Kid. I had to un-gaslight myself, start logging her behavior, and talk to other people to really see it for what it was. I told multiple friends about it and we all generally have the same consensus that Vulture is just an unfit parent. If her chronic illnesses are truly interfering with her life that much, she shouldn’t be the majority caregiver through the day. But it’s not like OLB would be able to work from home or be the stay-at-home parent. In a perfect world, I would be able to help more as well, but I’m barely the “fun
” aunt. I’m barely equipped to help care for a three-year-old. Hell, most days I’m barely an actual person. Kid deserves better.
Bottom line, Kid deserves better than what this house can give. I am upset with myself over my lack of action, but the logs have only been growing bigger. Every day, the doormat dies a little more.
Vulture herself though, will likely always be a side show. One thing that Z pointed out to me was that, as the doormat I used to be, I would give everything to help someone even when I was mentally exhausted. I enmeshed myself too much into the lives of my friends because I loved making them happy and making their lives easier. It’s gotten me into some awkward territory with Vulture, because some things were interpreted as more than friendship.
You ready to cringe more? Because the next part is going to deal with polyamory, the desire for open relationships, and the main reason why Z despises her – and that’s putting it mildly. Take a moment to un-cringe yourself. It ain’t over yet.

2023.06.05 03:19 EastonHB27 The Best Smelling Men’s Natural Soap on the Planet.
I was at a small store in Tennessee and I came across a display of soap that I’ve never smelled before. I decided to give it a whiff and I don’t even have words to describe the smells. They were easily the most delicious thing that has ever been inside my nose. I was on the brink of buying a bar but I couldn’t justify paying $9.00 for a 4.0oz bar. Luckily I found their Instagram and their website from there. It’s a dollar cheaper (same price as Squatch) on their website. Let me tell you my friends, you will not be disappointed. Every scent kept getting better the more I smelled. I thought that I had reached the limit of the best smelling thing imaginable, then I would pick up the next bar. The only single thing I have to complain about is the fact that they don’t use natural fragrance. Seriously recommend it, I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

2023.06.05 01:40 ThrowRADanibels What can I do?
What am I able to do? I am a 17 year old female and I have 3 older brothers in their 20’s, two of which live at home. (However those two are building their own house at the moment so they will be gone in a few months.) My mother(56F) is a hoarder, and justifies her hoarding by thinking that it is something that my brothers and I need. She grew up in a broken, authoritative father figure home and was given barely anything from her parents her entire life. She thinks that by giving us stuff, and I mean STUFF, that it makes us happy- but it doesn’t. It only makes my brothers and I more miserable. My mother is the kind of person that doesn’t accept that she is aging, lives very selfishly, attention seeker, and has anger issues. She doesn’t try to better herself and always comes up with excuses. She also digs through the trash we throw out, and made my once eldest brothers room into closet for my clothes. She is constantly on online shopping websites and Facebook market place and other common online stores. She is completely glued to her phone and so is my father. She has constant ‘tantrums’, or anger fits and screams at everyone about how horrible and they are or how much of a mistake they are. Because I am only 17, I can’t leave the house and live somewhere else yet. I am planning on going to college. And my family is a very loving one beyond the hoarding problem. When my brothers and I attempt to get rid of the hoard, by burning it, throwing it out, or donating it, she will find it and bring it right back in, or be super passive aggressive about it being burned. We have to hide the evidence of tossing it out. On another note, my mother tries to live through me constantly, and tries to control my life at the same time she says she isn’t. She buys me everything I ask for and then some. She buys me so much stuff that I do not want and tell her not to get me, that it caused constant arguments between us. She goes into my room and rummages around, entirely invading my privacy. One time I was missing something important, and I was going to be gone the entire day so I was unable to search for said item. In turn I asked my parents to look for it for me, but not to look for it in certain places as to protect my privacy and because it wouldn’t be there. As they were looking around my room for said item my mother looked underneath the bed, one of the places I explicitly told her to not search. She had even went underneath my mattress. When I came home the next day I was furious to see that the items under my bed her dug out and laying all over the place. I told her that it was an invasion of my privacy because I said explicitly to not look there or touch it. She only got upset at me, blamed everything on me, and never apologized. It was truly an eye opener. She still digs around my room and I can’t do anything about it since I do not have a lock for my door. I do not want to create drama in the house by confronting her because it leads to nowhere. To the present, my mother is creating a closet for me that I DO NOT want in the slightest. I have told her a multitude of times that I do not want it, to which she responded that it won’t be a closet of mine. I don’t even wear half of those clothes she is buying and placing in there; she literally is attempting to make me her little Barbie doll and saying that it is because she loves me. That is twisted behavior, and I looked online to what I can do to help her and whatnot. Unfortunately, there is nothing that I can do from my knowledge. She is labeled as a toxic mother from the various sources I have read, and the only thing I could do is create distance between her and I emotionally. However, if I create that distance she believes that I don’t love her and that I hate her. She has said multiple times throughout my life that she believes all of us hate her. (We don’t.) Upon that, I know as a teenager I can be a lot sometimes- I am a very blunt person at times- but she has called me a “flaming bitch”, “heartless”, “unfeeling”, “cold hearted”, “bitch” numerous of times that I used to believe that at first. I know now that yes I can be sharp sometimes, but that is amongst normal behaviors in females. I can’t bend over backwards to please her because no matter what I do I can never please her in the way she wants me to. Because of this manipulation of love that this is, I hate the word love. I believe it to be extremely manipulative, and I hate getting gifts in a relationship because of the hoard. The house I live in has every room full of stuff, box, clothes, items, and anything you can think of. Her excuse is that it is valuable, and granted some of it is, but mostly it is just stuff she bought online. My father in all of this has given up. He is just a man that plays the father figure and tries to be the best husband he can be, but he doesn’t have the “authority” to stop the hoard madness. I don’t know what to do anymore, I’m so lost in the mound of junk that has accumulated around me and my brothers. What we believe is our only escape is by moving out as soon as possible, but my brothers are moving out soon and I’ll be stuck here for another year. I can’t do that to myself, I can’t put myself through that year long unhappiness. What am I able to do? If someone reads this please, any advice would be helpful.
