Growing up I never felt okay. I never felt okay around anyone, it didn’t matter who it was. From an early age I had experienced lots of teasing and physical torment due to my condition. I cannot run, jump, go up stairs nor walk normally; and for some odd reason people find that hilarious. I’m not sure why I’m writing this, or even posting it but I guess it feels somewhat therapeutic to say that in my 17 years of living I have not had one friends who hasn’t made fun of me for my issue. And people always tell me that people who make fun of you aren’t your friends or some bs like that, so I guess I’ve never really had a friend. With quarantine Ive had a lot of time to myself and I guess so many bad thoughts have been overwhelming me that I almost took my life yesterday, I don’t know what made me stop but I hope I can find the courage to stop again.
I love you, please don’t give up.
edit: thanks for all the love and support ❤️
So May of last year I was a ~17 hcp, went to Ireland to visit a friend and we played 4 days, 4 different courses and I actually shot 96/96/96/96. It was a very frustrating experience, I struggled so much with inconsistencies and decided to overhaul my swing when I came back home. June 10th 2019 I started that process. Last sunday I shot my personal best 74 and my current handicap is 5.4. I think I still have a lot to improve on my swing, but want to share some things that were REALLY helpful in improving my score this past year:
Politics aside, this is inspiring story.
I love this game it’s great. There’s just one problem with it and these bow competitions that you do. People that use the quest are at a massive disadvantage and are never going to achieve such scores, it’s just not going to happen. And it’s all because of inside-out tracking vs outside-in tracking.
The only let down for this game on quest is that with the bow you can have either good aim by lining up the arrow with your eye, or you can have a full powered shot, you cannot have both. Reason for this is that you have to draw the bow string past/behind the headset for a full powered shot, at which point the cameras can’t track the controllers position because it can’t see them, and so it is impossible to line up the arrow with your eye for a full powered accurate shot. The only way to get an accurate shot by lining up the arrow with your eye is by not drawing the bow string further than the area that the cameras can still see the controller, so you are sacrificing at least a quarter of... keep reading on reddit ➡
My elderly neighbors car was towed overnight from apartment parking lot in the handicapped spot. She called the towing company and they gave the reason for towing as the handicap placard hanging from mirror was expired.
I know that extensions have been allowed for all things regarding cars currently by the state. Is it legal for them to tow her car for the expired permit? Apartment office is closed today so unable to talk to them about issue yet. Also wanted to note that her car is registered out of state and handicap placard is from out of state.
My handicapable friend, who we used to call "BK" recently tried to get something to drink at our local u/BurgerKing. He was born with 1 and 1/2 arms, and has to have a drink carrier in order to drive with his cup safely.
When he asked for a drink carrier this is what the manager said:
"Buy a car with two cup holders, your hand isn't my problem."
What say you, u/BurgerKing?

I'm curious to see what type of irons the low, mid, and high handicaps are gaming here on /r/golf!
Kayaking is one of the only physical activities I’m able to do because I have really bad balance and a bad leg which makes walking very difficult for me. Yesterday I went kayaking with my family and the boat launch we went to had a handicap launch for kayaks which had bars to help you get into and out of the kayak. Guys, it was awesome! Normally getting in and out of the kayak is the most difficult part for me and the handrails just made it so easy!
So, next time we kayak, I’m searching ahead for spots that have these handicap entrances!
I carry 215-225ish and 11hcp
So im in Ireland first of all, im a 46 year old 18 handicapper. I hit straight if shorter drives, im a middling iron player in that i can hit irons and get within 20 yards of most greens, i rely heavily on my shortgame especially putting. Im also 6ft and on the chunky side.
So i went to Foregolf custom, they are brand agnostic and carry all the main brands. Their facility is in an upscale golfcourse near my home. They use trackman and good quality taylormade and srixon rangeballs. My fitting was booked to be 90 mins and a full bag check from top to bottom. The cost was €100 and a commitment to a further €200 spend which was fine with me as i was definitely getting new irons.
Preperation - i had done my homework on models i might like in irons and driver, wedges and putter. I had a budget in mind that was realistic and based off retail big box prices.
I had sold my previous ping irons and spider putter the previous week along with my m6 3 wood to make room and to create extra bud... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I was just informed by my girlfriend that a old beige van pulled into the neighbors driveway, backed up and into her brothers driveway, and a older white male with a white mustache and a cane with a snake on it, got out and asked her nieces (who were playing out front with the front door open) something along the lines of " don't you remember me, I'm your neighbor" to which the oldest said NO I DON'T KNOW YOU and yelled for her mother to come outside.
The man got back into the beige van with a handicap tag, with a covered "push out" window, and a broken drivers side window, and took off without anyone getting any other valuable information like licence plate.
The police were called and was reported and we were not able to get a clear picture from the camera that was rolling during this. We hope to find better footage from other cameras on the same road.
To add, a neighbor one road over said he was solicited for "gas money" by the same man in the same van.
I am really upset, sc... keep reading on reddit ➡
Anyone know if there is enemy handicap in 5? Couldn't find an answer when searching
Been replaying DMC3 and 4 to set myself up for 5 and got really ticked off by the enemy handicap. I'm not great at DMC. I can usually pull a B or C mission rating in SoS in 4. But I got used to the dark souls model of "if at first you don't succeed, smash your face against it until you get it." So it really pisses me off if I die a few times and now the enemy has a handicap. I'd like the wall I'm smashing my face against to break because my skull actually broke it, not cause they made the wall softer, you know?
Hello - Thinking of getting setup for a Handicap Index and based on FAQs, I need to join a club for this.
Assuming I join a public one, are there any crtieria to consider when choosing the club - If I'm only interested in the index?
Disclaimer (This is not about lag switching or manipulation of your connection, I’m simply discussing the port forwarding side of things)
So this is something I discovered with a friend of mine back in Taken King days
When ever we disable UPnP and DMZ and pretty much anything that help with connection, we get much much better hit registration.
When ever we enable everything we get a lot of ghost bullet so our conclusion is to always turn it off
I don't understand why since almost all games benefit from port forwarding, i thought maybe because Destiny has their weird P2P hybrid servers.!
I have a 100mb down 20mb up fiber optic connection with a good ping in all other games.
Any thoughts or experiences with this?
I went from a 14.1 to 6.1 from the beginning of this year til today. Granted, I've played 94 rounds during that span. Most I've played was 31 rounds in one month. (A true addict lol)
Hi all 👋 I am very new to Reddit, and I am honored that FDS was one of the first 3 subs on which I lurked. Even on far less maligned social media than Reddit, I never see such a thorough understanding of female issues. Great work ladies 🙌
I think that part of the reason I enjoy FDS is also the question I'm asking here. I have what used to be called Asperger's syndrome, which makes me unable to perceive certain nuances, particularly in relationships. Unfortunately, the internet is currently full of the most disgusting ignorant pigs, who have the nerve to use my diagnosis as an excuse for their atrocious behavior. They have attached a stigma entirely on their own to my own life, beyond the already severe stigma of mental illness. FYI I have 7 years experience as a mental health aide. I use my own life story to inspire teens with all kinds of issues, including rape and depression, to go to college and become more than just neckbeards and waifus. It is not a wealthy job, but it's enough... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've only recently begun waking up quite early for work and have been noticing my mental acuity has been terrible. Memory slips that are almost comically bad, lack of concentration, heavy reliance on caffeine etc. I know from genetic testing I am a night owl with an expected wake time much later than normal.
My question is whether this disjuncture between my genetic circadian rhythm and current one is actually impeding cognitive function during morning hours? Furthermore, am I unavoidably missing out on a window of REM sleep by waking up earlier? Anecdotally I know that by sleeping in later I'd traditionally get more dreams whereas now I hardly get any. Hoping specialists might browse this sub
I have been using the same 56 Taylormade RAC wedge for prob 6+ years and recently been looking at the milled TM wedges and am a bit overwhelmed.
I’m a 15 handicap and use p790’s through the A wedge which is 50 degree.
I will eventually get more wedges but right now just looking to replace 56.
For the sake of gapping should I get a 54 and then plan on 58?
Or stick to 56 and then plan on grabbing a 60?
Also what bounce should I get on the clubs? Never really payed attention to this as I got all clubs second hand
It was incredible, leaving behind all the technicalities, focusing on the ball, and relaxing did more than I would have ever thought.
Forget all the technical crap during your swing. Sure - consider these points before you swing, but the moment you start walking to the ball you need to have a clear mind.
Ultimately, the more swing-thoughts you have, the more out of sync your swing will be and the higher probability you'll have of missing
Just be honest thanks.
So this week I went with a buddy to a 1000yd par 54 pitch and putt here in NY just to poke around and get some good 56° practice in. I ended up playing really well (1 over) and add an after thought checked to see if the course was on The Grint. It was, and I entered my score wanting a record of it.
Woke up the next day and my handicap on The Grint had dropped almost FOUR POINTS (13.9 to 10.0)
What gives? I didn't think P&P factored in to handicap, and if it does why on earth did it factor so much. The course is rated [53.2/86].
I've started playing golf more, and I think I should start keeping track of my handicap. Is it something I should calculate myself? Is there a site I should use? Any information would be very helpful.
The car has no placard and is taking up 2 handicap spots. It’s apparently been a couple hours and the kind cops in my area just arrived and are moving the car for that person instead of having it towed. Today is that person’s lucky day. (I’m at a clinic getting my PET scan and overheard them saying the person was getting a procedure done so it would have been a while until they moved the car)
I am not saying I would, because morally, I disagree, even if its technically true. But I've heard that parking spots must justify a handicap parking spot by signage, as well as paint markings on the ground to deem it handicap only.
I’m a 5.9 based on my best 4 of last 10 at my “home course”, and a 6.5 overall, with 12 different courses in my last 20 rounds. I feel like my difference is statistically insignificant, but it’s not like I’ve been playing my home course for years and years and know it inside and out.
I’m curious about those of you that play a lot of your rounds at one course that you know well, how much difference is there between your home and away handicaps?
I used to work in a call center doing reservations for a large hotel company. One man called looking to make a reservation at a property for two people.
Man: Oh, yeah, I need the handicap room. I only got one leg.
Me: Of course, sir, that's not a problem. So I have a room here, handicap accessible, one king bed, non-smoking...
Man: Oh, I need one with two beds.
Me: We do have rooms with two beds, but our handicap accessible room only has the one bed.
Man: Aw, nah! Nah! It's two guys staying. I can't share a bed with a dude! I'm not like that, come on man!
Me: Ok, should I make the reservation for the room with two beds then?
Man: Deep sigh Yeah, guess we'll have to. I guess I'll just bring my shower chair. Man, this is so inconvenient.
Edit: My point is not to mock this man for his disability. I thought this was funny because he made this wild leap that I assumed he was gay because I offered a room with one bed or that sharing a bed with another man made him gay. I shared a h... keep reading on reddit ➡
