I know I'm barking up the wrong tree here but anyone know where I can find this Intel part? I need it for a project. I lost the one that came with my case long, long, long ago.

And of course, the third party battery I got from amazon don't fucking work so I'm stuck with the bloated battery on my N3DS which I am sure is the absolute pinnacle of safe operation.

re: Erectile Dysfunction and trans femme talk 

(also yeah trans care is shit and some people actually, shocker, do not need blockers, I am fine with my T at 20, the low end of the CIS FEMALE range... I do not need it as low as fucking possible thanks)

Erectile Dysfunction and trans femme talk 

Okay so uh, I've noticed almost NO doctor takes ED in trans femmes seriously.

Suggestions I've heard include taking fewer blockers (I don't take any), cut back the estrogen (I'm taking a fucking injection and I don't want to schedule a narrow window before injection where I can have sex thanks), and basically... anything other than prescribing ED drugs or offering other suggestions.

It really pisses me off.

What are we supposed to do, not penetrate anyone? I'm sure cis people would just /love/ that...

psychedelics mention, prohibition, tangenital 

I get the thinking psychedelics will be abused if research were allowed and it was available, but would it really matter if it is?

And yes, these drugs can really alter your mind in bad ways without guidance, but some antidepressants can trigger suicidal ideations too. You can even snort some antidepressants for a decent high. This is why we have medical supervision.

I think the risk of harm of causing a few people to fry their brains on acid (which they will do anyway) is outweighed significantly by possible therapeutic benefit.

I immensely dislike how research into psychedelics and possible usage in psychiatry basically stopped cause the government associated it with the counter-culture movement.

I didn't even use LSD for strictly recreational purposes. I feel like few would understand though thanks to the propaganda campaign around LSD being largely a success.

I think psychedelics could be used legitimately in psychiatry to allow for more critical self-evaluation. It's a shame it can't be researched thoroughly.

mental illness, trauma discussion, LSD mention 

I imagine some people are sceptical I really needed a psychedelic to help myself but I don't think they understand just how severe my issues were. Therapy, medication, etc. have all failed.

I know some people think LSD is dangerous but the risks are vastly overblown. A lot of propaganda from the war on drugs has gotten into people's heads, to the point some have gotten angry over ketamine being approved for depression.

mental illness, trauma discussion, LSD mention 

When I don't listen to my body it makes me extremely depressed because I'm not me when I'm hungry/tired/need space/etc. So I've been trying to be more mindful about that.

I am still hopeful that I've had long-term changes from all this but I do know that LSD was far from a panacea and I still need to put effort into being a better person.

mental illness, trauma discussion, LSD mention 

still doing fairly well

mostly able to catch myself when I'm going into a bad mental state although it's hard

I did get upset with my wife Alex last night over my progressive deafness vs her trauma which triggers her when she has to repeat herself. She got upset that I said she will have to find a way to get over it eventually because I cannot stop my deafness from getting worse. I'm already deaf in one ear.

I feel like crap about the whole thing but I stand by what I said tbh. Not letting your trauma hurt others is important to stop victimising others although this is virtually never discussed anywhere. The prevailing attitude is "everyone else just has to accommodate the trauma," which is true, but that doesn't mean that the victim doesn't have to work on their shit or that such accomodations are always possible.

But anyway.

Listening to my body and giving myself what I need, like food or sleep, is extremely important I've found.

And of COURSE Paulette may come back... this wretched hurricane season...
