I was thinking they were going to just do a quick restart but it looks like that's not the case. Just getting back into ESO after a few years away. Any vets know how long these shut downs usually take? Is it usually like a 30 minute thing or a 5 hour thing?

2021.10.21 21:23 ss0qH13 Mother VEHEMENTLY Against Donation
Hey guys! Potential live donor here. I don’t know how to deal with my mother and hope that you guys can maybe give me some advice…this is a long one so
TL;DR: Mom doesn’t want me to donate to my friend and has gone to some rather extreme lengths to try to get me to change my mind.
One of my best friends found out earlier this year that she is in need of a kidney. I’ve always joked that I love my friends so much I would give them a kidney….I was joking, but when she told me of her plight, I realized that I was serious and so I started the process (much to her protest I’ll add, she wasn’t asking, she was shocked I even offered).
Fast forward several months and I’ve just had my pre-evaluation. My case went to the board the Wednesday following my evaluation and upon the transplant team receiving two more test results (echocardiogram and updated pap) I’m assuming we will have a green light. Side note: I am assuming this to be true because I feel as though they wouldn’t have asked me to get an echo (mother’s request not mine….I’ll get to that…) and update my pap-smear if the answer was going to be no.
So here’s where I need advice.
My mother and fiancée (Matt) have been against this from the get go. My loving fiancée was, for the most part, projecting his CRIPPLING anxiety about doctors/surgery onto me. He has since come around to the whole thing after slowly answering his questions/calming his worries. My mother on the other hand….well let’s just say her general feelings on the matter have gotten worse. A lot worse.
This mostly stems, in my opinion, from a complete lack of understanding about basic anatomy/biology coupled with fear because she loves me. I know she’s scared as hell for me and I can empathize. But it’s getting to be a lot and it’s getting harder and harder for me to be nice about it.
I brought her with me to the pre-evaluation to give her the opportunity to ask any questions she had. I brought her INSTEAD OF Matt actually just to try and get her on my side. She asked her questions, even asked them if I could get an echo done (despite a completely normal EKG and absolutely no heart problems in my life…I’m 26..) and I truly thought that she was feeling better about the whole thing. Boy was I wrong. If anything she’s gotten worse, a lot worse.
When the nephrologist was going over the risks associated with having one kidney, it’s like she only heard parts of what he was saying. I also get the distinct impression that when I told her to research she googled things to the effect of “terrible side effects of kidney donation” or “reasons people regret donating their kidney”. You know what you find when you have targeted searches like that? Bad news bears.
She is convinced that I will ”catch” (her words not mine) diabetes later in life because I will only have one kidney. I calmly asked her to explain how, biologically, she thinks this will happen (no family history of diabetes AT ALL). She said, “because the one kidney can’t filter out the bile correctly”. I love my mother and try to be nice, but when she said that it was so painfully clear that she has no idea what she’s talking about.
She also is bringing up crazy, hypotheticals: “what if you find out, after donating, that you’ll never be able to ride a horse again?”, “I read about a man who was never able to run another marathon after he donated..what if that happens to you?!?” (I have never ran a marathon nor do I plan to).
Keep in mind, aside from bringing her with me to talk to the professionals in person, I’ve also sent so much reading material her way along with podcasts about the topic, links to NPR (her favorite) pieces about live donation, this list goes on.
When arguing with me didn’t get her anywhere she turned to going BEHIND MY BACK (everyone she spoke to came to me immediately unbeknownst to her) to try to get them to convince me I’m making a bad choice. This includes all my closest friends (not including recipient) and my fucking fiancée.
But the worst thing she’s done is claim that my dear, beautiful friend isn’t deserving of a live donation and should instead hold out for a deceased donor. Her reason? Because when we went to visit for the pre-eval we went out to dinner and she ate a meal that wasn’t part of her kidney diet. Keep in mind, this girl has been eating the most boring fucking food for MONTHS. We talk nearly every day and she told me a couple days before about how excited she was to go out with us and eat something that reminded her of the good ol’ days.
I am so thankful that my dad is on my side. I don’t know if I’d be able to handle both of them pulling this shit. Also very happy that everyone else that matters to me in my life is supportive of this choice. But I love my mom and talk to her damn near every day (on the phone we are in different states). That being said, I’ve seriously been considering going no contact until this is all over. I have tried everything I know to try.

For kontekst så ble den 19 år gamle rapperen Einar skutt og drept i går kveld. Tydeligvis så er svenskene så glad i å leke gangster at de faktisk dreper hverandre. VG-artikkel her.

2021.10.21 21:23 stirringthemasala Best noots for bad brainfog/depression/anhedonia/awareness/depersonalization?
Does anyone know the best nootropics for really bad brain fog(has been affecting me since my childhood due to inflammation from autoimmune disease, have only had a clear head a couple of times in my life, most of my life has been a slog and slow reaction time)
I have a couple of problems which started from the brainfog to depression to anhedonia to depersonalization, I’ve experienced depersonalization a couple of times in my life but now it’s pretty permanent, I’ve been on many meds before as assigned by the doctors but nothings worked and I have really bad memory, I don’t want to live like everything I’ve experienced is a dream or like I’m living in someone else’s body. Also noots for nerve damage might be helpful.

2021.10.21 21:23 Hypso-Musk-Rat Zillennials, what is your take on piercings?
This question is aimed more towards men. There’s been a stigma regarding men having piercings for a while. It seems like piercings (particularly earrings) amongst men have been increasing. However, there still appears to be a stigma. I predict that possibly in the future, piercings amongst men will become more common. What is your take?
