While rewatching Mandala and the beginning of Phoenix this thought came to me: was it merely a coincidence that Walt was delivering the drugs precisely when Sky went into labor? Or did Gus somehow manufacture these circumstances? If he could he's certainly the type who would, seems like a Gus thing to do (a Fring to do? Eh, not my best...)
The one hour deadline at a far-off abandoned motel seems unnecessary. I wouldn't put it past Gus (or Mike more likely) to slip something into Skyler's food or drink to induce labor and start the clock, so to speak. Testing Walt in this way goes right along with his "a man provides" mentality.
I'd appreciate any thoughts or comments you may have. If this has been discussed elsewhere and you have a link please share.
Hi. I’ve (F21) been in rehab for half a year for drug addiction. Three months ago a girl (F21) moved in and has ever since she came in been talking about how she hates staying sober, wanting to off herself and how a drug free life is not a life worth living.
In the start, I was super supportive with everything she said because I really can relate to that. I bought her cigarettes, asked if she wants to watch a movie, asked how she is doing and if she needs anything or need help. New girls came in and she has continued to talk about how shit it is to be here and how she’s planning to leave, in front of young girls who’ve only been here a couple days.
Our rehab is very intimate because we’re fewer than 10 girls in our house and we’re living in the middle of nowhere so we have to in some capacity be respectful to one another.
Me and my friend here in rehab have both told her and the adults who work here that it’s really difficult for us when this girl is aggressive and is slamming things every day, but nothing has been done. I have great trauma from loud noises and after three months I’m almost immune to loud sounds because I’ve been exposed to her mood every single day. The adults shove this problem under the rug and say that she has a very difficult time. The problem is that we all have a really difficult time because of this. She is no different from us and we all have experienced trauma, abuse, overdoses, problems related to drugs and so on.
She uses things we say against us and is manipulative in the way she acts. We all care for her, but she uses this against us and has several times brought up that she only cares for her boyfriend. Any time we bring up the slamming, she uses this as an excuse to go out and do drugs and turns whatever we say so that it sounds like we are attacking her looks or personality.
She talks openly about how she is going to commit suicide and overdose in group therapy every other day which is very triggering for me because I have history with people I love who’ve died to suicide and cancer and I’ve had overdoses and attempts myself before rehab. She triggers me every day and I have to calm my nerves five times every day. I have lost my appetite, I struggle with sleep and have anger issues from experiencing this every single day.
I can’t pinpoint one single incident or one single problem, because it’s everything at once. She doesn’t have do mandatory everyday things and no one tells her about this. If the rest of... keep reading on reddit ➡
This was in 2013. My mom was trying to return something, and I was sitting on the bench with my phone. Right across the bench to the left of the customer service desk was the men’s bathroom. A man walked in wearing a very long peacoat over his suit while holding a duffle bag. Ten minutes Later another man dressed in A suit with a duffle bag walked in. I have no clue if I saw them come out or not but, that sounds like A very badly planned, unprofessional drug deal to me.
What do you guys think? They were in there for over ten minutes.
any recommendations would be welcome
My brother is 40 years old, no job, no girlfriend, and leaches off my parents! Ever since I was a child(currently 23), my brother is the cause of all our problems. When I was 9, he stole my Christmas presents. All to fuel his addiction. He calms down for a bit, keeps to himself, then BANG; he steals our TVs and valuables! My father, despite repetitively saying he is done with his crap, always folds and lets him keep staying. Finally, my dad had the balls to ask me to write up an eviction letter, and I did, but again, he’s leaning towards folding. My brother is loud, a nuisance, homophobic, racist, sexist, always has to be right, and is a gaslighter. Last night he would not shut up, screaming like he is pregnant all night long. I need him gone. My little sister was in tears last night because of him! Ideas? How can I get him out of our lives?
