I feel like a new person. IWNDWYT
And this one
For those people who say they can't see a difference
Finally got the energy to start working out again Went from 235 to 185
My husband and I went NC with my MIL after she screamed at my daughter for sitting in my lap while she was sick with the flu then when she ended up in the hospital, MIL demanded that I leave so she could see my daughter (2 visitors per room and my husband was there) after we said we weren’t allowing in person visits and wanted to limit phone calls and FaceTime calls.
When we told her we were going NC until she can get her shit together she texted my daughter “tell daddy (me) that you want to have a sleepover with grandma tonight” (on her first night home from the hospital) then a couple days later “I wanted to take you to your favorite restaurant today but daddy won’t let me see you”.
I told my daughter that we aren’t gonna talk to or see my MIL for a little while because she wasn’t being nice to us and told my daughter to block her.
Daughter got mad at me because she loves her grandma and she still wants to see her but eventually blocked her. Then she unblocked her behind my back.
MIL convinced my daughter that I was mad at her because she got sick and was considering putting her back into the system (we adopted her from foster care last year). Last night I went to my daughters room to tuck her in and she hid from me. She’s never done that before. Even when we first started fostering her and she was terrified of me and my husband.
I was eventually able to calm her down enough to go to sleep but I’m just so pissed off with my MIL. Who convinces a kid that their parents want to give her away because they’re mad at the parents?
Edit: just wanted to include that my daughter is 17
Edit 2: I saw a few comments about this so I wanted to include this in an edit. My daughter has developmental delays so she doesn’t have the freedoms that most kids her age have and she doesn’t really understand these kinds of situations.
As you probably know, the Fairy type Pokémon Xerneas is comming to raids in May, and with that we will need Pokémon that can fight it. Steel and Poison are Fairy types only weaknesses, but unlike Steel, Poison has never been a viable PvE type before.
Virizion was a Grass/Fighting type, so although Poison types were decent, experienced players would use flying types or even fire types.
Aaand... thats it, there are next to no legendary grass types, and legendary Fairy types did not exist until Xerneas. This will be the first time Poison types can compete in the DPS/TDO competition during a raid.
"But Metagross will be #1 Dps anyways" - Yes, but behind him? My point is that Poison types have been so ... neglected in the Raid scene, and I am glad to see it get some usability.
Sadly there are not too many strong Poison types, but for those who want to know, there is;
Gengar (Shadow Claw as fast move)
All of these are non legendary and great budget attackers for new players. The only thing that is similar in the Steel department is Excadrill.
I for one welcome two weeks where I get to see some poison types, and in the future with Tapu Bulu (Grass/Fairy) we will se even more of them.
I did Amway for only a few months, and only lost a few hundred bucks, which thankfully was easy to recover from. I know this is a long post, but it's crazy, this Amway lifestyle. And now reflecting on it, it's quite sad too.
My first experience at a national conference was actually what deterred me. Here I was sitting in an arena of 10,000 people, everyone chugging those damn XS energy drinks like their life depended on it. Mind you, we were pretty exhausted because the uplines keep you up late at night to make sure you don't try and process all of this ridiculous information before you go to bed at night. Instead the sit you in a room in a circle and talk about how the business is important in gaining financial freedom.
Side note, I joined when I was in college and just wanted to make a few extra dollars. I have good marketing skills and I thought that it would be a fun experience. I guess it was, but not in a professional way. I got a huge glimpse into this practically cult mentality and walked away both sad and relieved.
They bring you in with their smiles and enthusiasm. The keep you by trying to make you feel like family and that all they ever want is to make you rich. You sign your pen to paper and in return you get a hug. I see why people are attracted to it. They feel accepted, finally a part of something.
Too bad for them, I've always thought there is nothing wrong with being independent. I try to be a humble and giving person, and still there will always be people who judge or don't like me. That is life.
When I joined it was September of 2015. Primaries were gaining steam for the 2016 election. My upline was a married couple who was 6 months pregnant and expecting their first child, a son.
They were warm people. They brought me to their apartment and shared with me products and talked to me about everything. I felt like they cared, but I also remember feeling uneasy about how much they wanted me to be a part of them. A few weeks in I had stopped by their apartment and she had told me about how much fun it will be when the baby comes, and how excited he is to meet his Aunt ***** (me). I thought that was weird. Why would you call me the aunt of your child when I barely know you.
I would go to the weekly business meetings at the hotel and a few weeks in they told me I have to pay $5 every week to help pay for the room. Every week it was the same presentation, our uplines dressed in suits and presenting the "plan".

Jurisdiction is Richmond County in VA if it matters. Earlier this week I was at the local dog park with my Husky-GSD mix yesterday and suddenly a kid around 3-4 was running to my dog with a red bag in their hand, and since my dog is friendly to children I let the kid approach her to play with her.
He then pulled a cookie out of the bag and tried to give it to my dog, and the moment that I saw that the cookie had raisins on it I immediately snatched it, without touching the kid, as raisins is deathly poisonous to dogs, which caused the kid to start crying, and their parents immediately raced to where we were.
They accused me of assaulting their kid and threatened to call the police if I didn't give them my contact info, so I gave it to them as I was afraid of them going through with the threat. Earlier this morning I got an e-mail from a person who claimed that he's the parents' attorney and that I had to pay $350.00 to cover their child's doctor visits and therapy otherwise he would press assault and theft charges that could land me several months in the slammer.
I have no fucking idea what to do here as I don't have $350.00 to spare since I'm a college student and I can't risk prison time as I'm pre-med and it could kill any prospects of a career. What should I do here?
