2021.12.03 01:03 Jonsis Post-infection foreskin problem (35yo, no pictures)
About five months ago I had a case of candida that lasted for about three months, to be precise, it lasted for about a month but left my foreskin very tight for two more months. Tight at the point that was almost too tight to retract. The peculiar thing was that it wasn’t tight in the area that covers the glans like in a phimosis scenario, but right underneath it. Try to imagine your foreskin covering your glans but having a tight ring of skin on the neck of your penis.
I thought it was just a normal process of the recovery from the infection and I was advised by a "professional" to gently stretch the tight area daily till it becomes soft again. And so I practiced daily stretches using warm water for about two/three weeks and it seemed to work.
As I mentioned in the beginning, this was about five months ago, and in this last two months I could clearly notice that those stretches now generated an excessive amount of foreskin (or to be more precise, it stretched more then it seemed it did due to a full recovery I imagine) on the neck of the penis, at the point that in full erection the glans is not completely unfolded due to the excess of loosed foreskin at the base of it. The previously tight ring of skin is now a ring of excessive loose skin.
My question is, is there a way to tighten up the stretched foreskin, or the foreskin in general, without recur to surgery?
If you need more details please DM me.
Thank you for your time.

2021.12.03 01:03 redskinsguy Things to dislike about NXT 2.0
So people have a lot of opinions on this show and I would like some details about why you classify this character or that one as something negative.
I'll even throw some in to show I'm willing
Von Wagner- he has a terrible look and is very awkward.
Andre Chase- to much time for a JTTS and the wrestling teacher gimmick is never terrible, but also never that good either
Lashing out with Lash Legend- I've barely listened to it so I have no opinion on Lash Legend herself but the show is totally unnecessary, as are any wrestling talk shows that don't lend themselves to atches easily

2021.12.03 01:03 Less-South6293 [Spoilers Ep9] My Very Emotional Response to Arcane
I am a 19-year-old man. I have an older brother. He is 22, and he introduced me to Arcane. I have never felt as much from any piece of art, media, or literature as I have felt from watching this show. It has been 5 days since I finished my first viewing, and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I have watched it a second time now and have cried many times, both from watching and thinking about it. I feel distracted, deeply saddened, and a little dazed. In a lot of ways, I wish I hadn’t seen Arcane at all, and this is my attempt at reaching some closure. Also, be prepared for some very bad writing, as I’m writing this stream-of-consciousness style and have no intention to proof read or organize.
From the very start of Arcane, I related the most to Powder. This was partially because it was Thanksgiving and I was watching the show with my older brother, who I hadn’t seen in about four months. Naturally, then, seeing two sisters, I identified with the younger one. When Powder messed up their raid in Piltover (and was subsequently chastised for her inadequacy), it reminded me of playing games in the backyard with a pair of brothers, who’s parents were friends of ours. I always teamed up with the oldest of the brothers (who was in high school when I was in elementary school), as I was the youngest and thus physically inferior. Powder’s fear that she is inadequate mirrors a long-time source of anxiety for me. While in high school, my brother got a perfect score on the ACT and every AP test he took, achieved all As in the hardest classes available, secured two summer research internships, was the star of the school play, attended every state championship swim meet, got admitted to governor’s school, and was offered multiple full-ride scholarships to college. When I got to high school, it was extremely important to me that I have the same success, both to not let my parents down and to show that I was his equal. As such, I did every single thing that my brother did: the same internships, the same classes, the same grades, the same governor’s school, the same test scores (with the exception of the ACT—I was one point away there). I also made it to every state swim meet and was the star of the school play. In the end, I was offered a full ride to the school I am now attending, but—at the time—it seemed like the world would end if I failed, and my motivations were probably unhealthy. This feeling of inadequacy, again, reinforced my identification with Powder.
In episode 3, when Powder throws a temper-tantrum at not being included in the rescue mission, I imagined the countless times that I was not included in activities my brother did with his friends (and some of my own subsequent tantrums). At this point in the show, I still didn’t know that Arcane was a tragedy. As such, I was overjoyed to see that Powder was about to prove herself, by saving everyone with her (now working) bomb. This was the magic solution to inclusion I wish I had when I was younger. Once I realized the reality, I was crushed. Powder’s complete despair at the horrific consequences of her innocent actions, reminded me of a breakdown I had in high school when my poor decision making (albeit with the best of intentions) almost got me suspended, erasing any chance I would have had at getting a full ride. While Vi’s beratement and Powder’s fear of abandonment felt very realistic in general, it also reminded me of a time when my brother and I were fighting with sticks in the yard and eventually wound up in a real fight. I went too far and tried to seriously hurt him. I recall him bolting upright and charging at me, in a way that made me fear he would try to hurt me as much as I tried to hurt him. I ran as fast as I could and pleaded with him for mercy, knowing his worst would be far worse than mine. It was that moment of complete helplessness that reminded me of this scene. In real life, though, my brother chased me until he could hurt me, but did not actually follow through with his revenge (what a nice guy, right?). It is also worth mentioning, that it was at this point in the show that my brother remarked (in jest) that “this is what it’s like having a younger sibling: they always screw things up for you”. This comment—combined with everything else I have described—cemented my view of Vi as my brother and Jinx/Powder as me. Seeing the pair forcibly separated made me want—more than anything else from this show—for the sisters to be reunited.
The relatability of Arcane’s two protagonists continues into the second and final acts. When Jynx sees Vi hug Caitlyn, she becomes jealous and fears that Caitlyn will replace her. This event reminds me of being very upset and jealous when the aforementioned older brother (son of our parent’s friends) got a girlfriend and stopped coming over when the rest of his family did. In response to my proclamation that “I hate his girlfriend,” my mother explained this was natural, but I would have to learn to accept it. Many years later, when my brother started getting girlfriends, I was not very jealous of them because I had had this experience before. I knew that I had been there before them and would probably be there after them. When my brother went away for college, I could not be jealous of his girlfriend, as I was not there to spend time with him anyway. The only time I have been jealous of his girlfriend was when she has visited over a holiday break (when I thought I could catch up with my now distant brother). Ruminating on Jynx’s fear of replacement, however, has made me realize that one day, my brother will probably marry someone. While I don’t think marriage would necessarily stop me from being close to my brother, Arcane has certainly made me questions this. My parents live far away from all their siblings and do not visit—or even call—them often. Is it possible to reach middle age and still be close to your siblings? If not, is this due to marriage or just time? To both questions, I don’t know. These feelings are also complicated by the selfishness of it all. My brother getting married would be a great thing for him and would probably increase his long-term happiness. At the same time, a married couple has two families they could visit during the holidays. Regardless of the cause, Arcane makes me feel like I will lose the closeness I have with my brother, even if that is not true.
I am at the point in my life, where I will likely never live with my family again. My childhood is as dead as a doornail, and Arcane’s insistence on reminding me of it is heartrending. When Vi talks to Caitlyn in her bedroom, she mentions sharing a bed with Powder when she was little and playing games scaring each other. This, of course, reminds me of when I shared a bed with my brother in the basement of our family’s summer house in Montana. I remember playing games falling over on him, calling it “the leaning tower of Pisa.” I remember fighting over the covers and being pulled out of the bed, breaking my chin on a nearby chair. I remember the many days we spent building a café inside a tree, swimming at a nearby pond, and exploring an old brick-making factory. My parents recently sold that house.
Arcane’s soundtrack includes “Goodbye” by Ramsey. The song has the following lyrics:
Where is my home?
I don't recognize the faces anymore, no
Where is my friend?
The one I've known since I was only just a kid
I think it's time to say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, woah
It's time to say goodbye
When I hear “Where is my home? I don't recognize the faces anymore” I am reminded that for the first time in my life, I don’t live in the same city as my parents or any of my old friends. I am reminded that my parents are 23 years younger than the average life expectancy and likely wouldn’t see my potential kids past high school. When I hear “Where is my friend? The one I've known since I was only just a kid,” I am reminded of those summers in Montana with my brother. I am reminded of all the other friends that moved away or I grew distant from. And most of all, I am reminded that I probably won’t live near my brother again, and I definitely won’t spend as much time with my brother as I used to.
The rest of Arcane is seriously heartbreaking. The writers constantly give you hope that the sisters will reconcile, provide some obstacle that prevents this from happening, and then restore your hope, restarting the cycle. While this style is infuriating, it at least makes you think that the sisters will reconcile in the end, right? Not in this tragedy. In the end, Jynx recognizes that things are different from when they were kids, and they cannot be together again. This ending makes it feel inevitable that siblings will be separated, and again reminds me of the separation inherent to growing up.
My father (an artist) has told me on multiple occasions that he finds the art that makes you think the best. Arcane is certainly great art, but its central theme is the inevitability of losing your loved ones. While it is a sad story on its own, the fact that the loved ones in question are an oldeyounger-sibling pair and the changing reality of my life at this moment combine to create an experience that deeply affected and saddened me outside of the show. The relatability of Arcane’s protagonists made real life feel like a tragedy—at least for the moment—and for that I kind of dislike it. Ultimately, I’m not sure what this says about the show, or the extent to which this was intended by its creators.

2021.12.03 01:03 DnDBartenderLastCall Encounter balance. I’m not a fan.
Why are fellow Dms so concerned about balanced encounters? That’s it that’s my question. I loosely build a concept for a fight, players choices up to that point may dramatically change a battle. Sometimes they may negate battle altogether, sometimes they may make it way worse. Raw gritty fights that really scare the PCs are so fun. Sometimes a fight doesn’t need balance or to be hard or to be easy it needs an element of something unique time, choice, sacrifice, illusion, terror or running. Your are the Dm paint a scene for your players don’t give them “oh I don’t want to kill you” encounters. Give them a fight! That cool encounter you’ve wanted to do but never done, do it! Just a thought.

Does it ever actually work well? Mine goes out all the time - the actual internet signal from their radio system stops working. They’re very responsive, send a tech over quickly, fix the problem……but also I’m paying for 24/7 internet and it feels like I’m getting some bootleg WiFi tethered to a neighbors network for free or something.
Am I just having a bad experience or is this the norm with netblazr?

2021.12.03 01:03 WatercressLow420 Dear guys… I was forced into turning vegan, and I liked it.
I used to be a carnivore… Hardcore carnivore. I ate meat every day.
But sadly, I got my braces, and then I watched a documentary.
Food is gross, especially meat.
I will be honest. I don’t care about the animal’s safety. I care about myself.
Animal meat is full of steroids and shit to make them grow. Gross.
Animal meat is disgusting. Completely disgusting.
When I got my braces, I wasn’t able to eat anything.
The pain was unbearable, and I couldn’t put anything into my mouth.
So I turned to only eating steamed vegetables.
I only ate steamed vegetables for a year, and the increase in my overall health was blatant.
The week after I removed my braces, I was going to be a carnivore again, but a documentary stopped me.
It wasn’t a documentary about animal cruelty or PETA. It was a documental about processed food.
Of course, animal meat was in there.
As well as impossible meat and vegan products, so veganism is not that healthy either, ha.
Anyway, I was grossed out by meat.
Vegetables have some pesticides, so eating 100% organic food is almost impossible; however, it’s the closest to organic we can get.
That’s why I’m vegan.

2021.12.03 01:03 ParticularCraft3 Opioid withdrawal?
I don't know much about opioids and how different ones effect the body. If someone is on both morphine XR and oxycodone IR long-term, and has the morphine dose increased in an attempt to get off reliance on oxycodone, will they experience withdrawal symptoms from the oxycodone?
For more info, he went from 45mg morphine every 12 hours to 45mg morphine every 8 hours in an attempt to reduce or eliminate the need for 20mg oxycodone every 3-4 hours.
He has metastatic prostate cancer, if that matters. His NP who controls all his medications switched him Monday. With all of the medications he's on, it's hard to pinpoint what is making him feel icky. We are going to the most recent change, which was the morphine. He went from taking 20mg oxycodone 8 times a day down to once when he wakes up in the morning, which he's happy about. I mostly want to know if I need to bring it up to his NP, or keep an eye on it and wait it out a few more days.
Tl;dr: Would a person withdraw off of one opioid when they're still on another opioid?

2021.12.03 01:03 Legitimate_Unit_9210 Johnny brought his entire rivalry with Daniel back
For me, Johnny reignited his entire rivalry with Daniel.
When meeting at the car dealership, Daniel was pleased to see him and greeted him like an old friend ... even hugging him and offered to fix his car for free. And he was polite to Johnny. Daniel had gotten over his hate for him.
He even said "I don't blame you what happen back in the day alright. I know that wasn't you. It was cobra Kai we are better without it am I right".
And Daniel was right as he became a Cobra Kai under Terry Silver and he became angry and violent. And Kreese and Silver could've killed him there too.
And Johnny even believed it later, saying that the writings on the wall were nothing and even Johnny's friends believed that Kreese's teachings did nothing later in their lives.
