[WTS][ON][MISSISSAUGA] Dboys aks74u, deadline Sunday may 29th 350$ obo

2023.05.28 07:41 No_Recover_7421 [WTS][ON][MISSISSAUGA] Dboys aks74u, deadline Sunday may 29th 350$ obo

Wanting to sell my aks74u from dboys, bought this rifle in November of 2022 from airsoft depot in Scarborough, gamed with it a total of 3 times at action airsoft in mississauga. Dboys is not known for quality and after my first game of running a 11.4 lipo the gears in the gearbox blew up, this has since however been addressed by the tech at airsoft depot and myself by method of replacing the gears with new and better quality ones, and by my own modification of drilling, threading and installing a new guide screw in the rear bracket to keep the spring guide in place preventing the issue from reoccurring, (the screw doesn't affect the rifles ability to collapse or open the stock, when the stock is opened the screw is not visible) she now runs flawlessly, it currently has a m90 spring installed making the rifle shoot ~300 fps with .2g bbs and sub 1 joule making it indoors legal and in some indoor fields full auto legal as well. Asides from that the rifle has minor cosmetic blemishes on the charging handle, inside of the muzzle near the threads, on the dust cover where the charging handle strikes and asides from that not much, the rifle also comes with a zenitco style b11 handguard, 2 high cap fakelite mags, an ak pattern sling, a dovetail mount for any picatinny/weaver platform optics or sights, and a zenitco style rp1 ergonomic charging handle. Tested with a battery and works safe, semi and full auto and shoots flawlessly, the rifle is wired to mini Tamiya and requires either a small brick battery or a long stick type battery.
Total value of all parts, labor, repairs and mods is ~550CAD
I will be in mississauga until 6 pm tomorrow and am only willing to sell in person, I can also possibly drive to a location within the gta, 350 obo, cash or etransfer is accepted, no shipping and no lowball offers.

2023.05.28 07:41 SixBeeps I'm scared and lost and it's dark and there are monsters I think

Please forgive me for making this post because I know there are probably many others like it, but bear with me here.
I'm a rising senior getting my BS in CS, but my biggest concern right now is that I haven't participated in an internship yet. Didn't really start trying until this past year, but I haven't gotten anything. Plenty of work experience in things that surround SWE (e.x. tech summer camp counciling, content creation) but no real SWE experience.
Another factoid: I could potentially graduate one semester early.
Now, (a) What should I be doing right now? (b) Should I try to graduate early? and (c) How screwed am I?

2023.05.28 07:27 throwaway70357 Asking for a raise

I make $0.75 above minimum wage as a technician at an emergency clinic. I’m still a baby tech, but i’m halfway done with my tech program and i work full time. i started as a receptionist and moved to the back in march. I feel a little taken advantage of because i’m young and in school.
i found out an old receptionist was making $14 an hour, and she was completely new to vet med. I am completely trained in reception and I run appointments, draw blood, place IVC’s, care for hospitalized patients, do other general treatments, and take X-Rays. I have monitored anesthesia/sedation with supervision, but i’m not confident in it and we don’t have the staff to train me to be comfortable enough to monitor alone. There are no RVT’s at my clinic, and only one other person is going to school.
I know i don’t know a lot, but i feel like i deserve to make more. There’s never time to take a lunch break, and i work 12-14 hour days. On indeed, places are offering $4-$10 more than what i’m making.
Does anyone have any advice on asking for a raise? I have never done this before and i am bad at confrontation. I also have incredibly bad imposter syndrome.

2023.05.28 07:21 Economy-Quarter-1660 Do I go back to my old job with less certainty or stay where I am temporarily and risk losing the opportunity?

I (23) have had bad luck with jobs since graduating in 2021. From 2022 to 2023 I have had three different jobs and been laid off from all of them (None of the lay offs were related to performance. I work in talent acquisition and each time my entire team was eliminated). The first job was remote contract work with a tech company and I thought that would be my forever job (this company is known to keep contractors for years at a time). My team was awesome, the pay was great, and I was able to keep a really good work-life balance. After I was laid off from that role I would always tell people that if they ever offered me a job back I would take it in a heartbeat. Next I went to work another contract position at a big tech company and then a salaried role at a small/medium sized business before being laid off from both as well.
In March 2023 I finally found a full time salaried job where I enjoy coming to work most days. My coworkers are cool and I feel like I’m learning a lot in this position. This company doesn’t pay as much as the other companies I’ve been with in the past and I’m not struggling to get by, but my budget has definitely tightened to where an emergency could really hurt my situation. I planned to stay with this company for at least a year or two and then move back to be closer to my family who lives 15 hours away from me. Unfortunately, my circumstances have changed and I will likely be moving back home after my lease ends in October. This has caused me a lot of stress and anxiety as I don’t like feeling out of control, especially because I took this job with the intention of lasting at least a year. I’ve been searching for jobs in my hometown in preparation for October and I’m not finding much that fits what I’m looking for.
A few days ago my old boss from the first company calls me and offers me my job back as a remote contractor. My first reaction was happy because this is the kind of opportunity I’d been hoping for given all the future uncertainties. I would have a remote job that pays well so it would eliminate the job uncertainty come October. Now that I’ve had a second to think about it I’m torn. I like my new job a lot but I’ll be leaving in October either way. I feel guilty about the possibility of leaving them so soon after I’ve made great connections with my coworkers and had a lot of success in my role. On the other hand because the job offered is more contract work my standing with them is less of a guarantee. I don’t know if they’ll end my contract 1 month or 1 year or 10 years from now. I also worry that this opportunity might not come again if I turn it down.
I have one week to decide. Do I stay with my current job until October and potentially not have this opportunity again or do I take the risk now and go back to my old job?

2023.05.28 06:57 Da_boss_babie360 Chance Me!

Ok so I finished my sophomore year, and am looking to dip my feet into the college admissions process more. Was wondering if y'all had any advice to improve, and overall just what your thoughts are.
I'll be putting my projected GPA for 11th and 12th grade, and will be going more conservative in that regard. So I'm going to assume B's in smth like AP Lang or French IV, for example.

So the website I'm using is "https://gpacalculator.net/high-school-gpa-calculato" to calculate my unweighted and weighted gpa. Each semester represents a year. And yes, I'm expecting 12th grade to have such high gpa, since it's all gonna be lab sciences (except for 1 which is an advanced humanities course, i put a B+ for that once even though it's prob an easy A, incase it's a hard class)

I believe for an A+ the calculator gives 4.33, and for honors courses it gives +.5 instead of +1. Whatever tho.

Gender: Male
Race: Indian
School: competitive to highly competitive private school
State: CA
Income: a lot - don't know how much though since money talk banned at our house. But definitely enough where I won't be taking any loans or don't need any financial aid.
Intended Major(s): Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Comp Sci, etc. (I initially was deciding between med and comp sci, but i kinda vibing with comp sci more both personally and in aptitude, etc.)
SAT: I'm taking it next year junior year. 1480 on PSAT (750 M / 730 EW). Based on practice tests on SAT, planning to hit on the 1550-1600 ballpark
UW/W GPA and Rank: (No rank at my school)
Year 1 : 4.08/3.46 (Bad year lol)
Year 2: 4.42/3.67 (Bit better this year, humanities subjs so hard , but I have great teachers helpin out tho)
Year 3: 4.58/3.83
Year 4: 5.08/4.08 (All weighted college level courses)

Cumulative: 4.54/3.76
(Our GPA is not inflated. Our teachers are hard - the 11th graders only have 1 person who has a 4.0 UW GPA..., idk about my grade but I believe no one has)

Coursework: 9 Honors, (Counting Phys C as 1 course:) 10 AP Courses, 6 Post-AP courses (Multivar, Linear Algebra, Data Structures and Algorithms, some english thing idk, Modern Physics, )
Tests: (15 total tests)
APCSA - 5, AP US Gov - 4
Projected Test Scores for courses I took this year: AP Bio - 5, AP Phys 1 - 5, APUSH - 4, AP CSP - 5, AP Calc AB - 5 and possibly a perfect score ngl.
Projected Test Scores for next 2 years: AP Phys 2 - 5, AP Phys C MEM - 5 & 5, AP World - 3, AP Stats - 5, AP Lang - 4, AP Calc BC - 5, AP Chem - 4

Awards (* Projected Awards): Don't wanna doxx myself so ima be vague
Oracle Certified Associate for Java, and Oracle Certified Programmer I (II this summer)Dell Boomi Certified too (this summer)
* USAPhO Silver at least, if not Gold
* National Merit (Have to wait till junior year)
* Grade 8 ABRSM, probably DipAB after
School Grand Integrator (Calc AB division)
* School Grand Integrator (Calc BC division)
(Graduated Kumon in 8th grade? Prob not gonna put this, but I consistently got rank <50. I mean idk if thats good tbh but hey its something)
[Probably will have more awards like other physics competitions, hackathons, etc. This is all I can think of rn tho]

ECs (* Projected ECs):
Martial Arts for about 10 years. No I'm not a black belt, it's damn hard to get one. But the journey is so worth it. Killer essay about it ngl. (* belt before black by application season)
Paid intern at internationally recognized software company and will work on cool stuff (mama ima be famous)
Essentially started my school student council, led it for the past 2 years, definitely gonna hold the spot for the next cycles. Organized lots of events, and working to spread us on a more inter-school level. (Spent over 20 thousand dollars to make small children eat pizza. Fun. me and my schoolmates the small children btw. School events are fun, especially when you head them)- This takes a lot of my time, but I think the payout will be huge : D
Started the STEM Tutoring Club. Regularly lead and teach there
* Starting an organization for student-student teaching.
* Also starting an organization for students to more easily volunteer for the community, making volunteering more accessible
< ^ Definitely going to continue these orgs even after high school>
* Research Paper on taking an IB final project topic from 2009-2010 that was used as our AP Calc Final Project, and expanding it using software to simulate stuff. Very cool. Teacher connecting me to researchers interested... o.o
Do cool hardware/software project and will write a paper on it. I don't really want to say too much on that, but it'll be hella cool.

Hooks: Anti-hook - I'm indian.

LOR: Old Math Teacher and future physics wrote a killer one (I heard) for my internship. Current Math Teacher taught for longer than my life, 3 times over, and said I was one of her brightest students. She gave a great one apperantly for internship as well. One of our admins who heads Clubs and Activities is a lso a very holistic person, and I can confidently say the letter she can write to colleges (like she already did, again, to the internship) will be comprehensive and stuff. Confident they'll write pog things for college.
I also have an interesting relationship with my english teacher. Taught me since 7th garde, knows how I've grown in an area I'm pretty bad in. And he's an english teacher.
Chancing LORs aren't rlly reliable tho, so i'll give my chancing for LOR as "above average"

List: T25, Georgia Tech as an out-of-state, UC Berkely/LA, yk the usual. UCLA would be pretty fun to get into. UT Austin is also on the table definitely since I like the place.

Idk I don't like spending my life running on the tails of colleges, I want to develop as a person and have a strong connection with my fam. So I probably won't do crazy things that take too much of my time. Most of my effort is gonna be martial arts, the fam, me and the boys, and learning to cook lol.

Essays: Probably will write em well. I have some unique ideas with my crazy life experiences lol. Drafted some and have good feedback.

2023.05.28 06:54 vanniecutie Weird White Blank Screen on 13 PM!!

Hello, I was charging my IP13 PM and all the sudden it only shows white blank screen. I tried to do a hard reset, reboot. The phone screen did turn off black and turn on to white blank screen again. It still rings when receiving phone calls or text messages. I took it to Apple Store but the tech said he couldn’t get into the phone so he doesn’t know what the problem is. So unlucky it happened just right after my graduation!! Still no job yet with the broken phone! :(
Any thoughts what it would be? What should I do with the phone?

2023.05.28 06:53 Strange-Grapefruit88 Asian male in CS bags MIT and multiple ivys (no safeties)

This information is unspecific for anonymity purposes
Demographics
Intended Major(s): CS (lol)
Academics
Standardized Testing
Extracurriculars/Activities (kept broad on here)
  1. Cofounder of an AI startup (12). I did this with a couple graduate students I knew and we've raised a decent amount in early funding. Dropped all other ECs senior year to focus on this.
  2. AI research at a T5 over the summer (11). I was accepted into a very selective program. Didn't publish anything but it was a good experience for college apps
  3. AI research at another T5 (10). Published a paper into a fairly reputable journal (not lead author though)
  4. CS research at my local college (9). Published paper as lead author, presented at a conference
  5. President of my school's peer-tutoring program (Member 9, President 10-12). I mostly help with Math and Physics (about 2 hrs/week)
  6. President of my school's CS club (Member 9, President 10-12). tbh we never do anything so I can still join and focus on EC #1
  7. Physics club vice president (member 9-11, President 12). Also do pretty much nothing.
  8. Volunteer at my local Buddhist temple (9-11). I work with new converts/people interested to help teach them more about the faith main Buddhist texts.
Awards/Honors
  1. 3x USACO plat (9,10,11)
  2. Winner of a prestigious national coding comp (11)
  3. Finalist in another prestigious tech comp (10)
  4. National Merit Semifinalist (11)
Letters of Recommendation
Math Teacher (9/10): I knew him super well and we work together for the peer-tutoring program. We often talk during lunch.
English Teacher (7/10): I'm a good student but I don't know her as well as the math. I'm active in her class though and she seemed excited when I asked if she would write me a letter.
Professor at T5 (7/10): I worked with this guy everyday. Our relationship was pretty much limited to only technical stuff, but I think he had a lot to say.
Interviews
MIT (first interview, dream school): Went really well and I clicked with the interviewer. She asked a lot of technical questions about my research, but I answered them well and she seemed impressed. I tried to act a lil "quirky" during the interview (since MIT's culture is like that) and she mentioned I'd be a good fit.
Princeton: Went well. Mostly talked about ECs and why I want to go.
Cornell: This was non evaluative. Consisted mostly of my interviewer talking about how the school was
Columbia: No interview :(
Harvard: Went well. The interviewer seemed impressed over how I name dropped certain professors and research groups I want to join.
Stanford: Nothing special. Mostly talked about why I wanted to go to the school. The interview ended in like 30 minutes :(.
Essays
Common App Essay (10/10): I spent 3 months pouring over this and it is honestly the best thing I have ever written. I spent like a month just outlining literary techniques and stuff I would use and it helped a ton. I had an English professor at my local college read it and say that it was "one of the better" student-written works they've seen. Lowkey trauma dumping (my hs english teacher cried when she read it) but I guess it worked
Supplemental (7/10): Half of these were done like a week before the deadline. They related to my ECs pretty well though and I was able to elaborate on my research experiences.
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
EA (0 safeties baby)
RD
Additional Information
MIT has always been my dream school and I was ecstatic when I got in, but the FA was TRASH. I adored the school when I visited. As I began to visit the other schools, I also really enjoyed Princeton. Cornell felt too isolated and Columbia was too urban, but Princeton fell right in the middle. I was still dead set on MIT though.
It was an incredibly difficult decision, but I chose Princeton. As much as I loved MIT, the tuition was too much for my family, and I couldn't pass up on the full ride. Go tigers!

my_qualifications - did 10+2 in 2019 now doin B.tech from tier 3 college I'm (22M) currently pursuing BTech from a tier 3 college. I'm in third year of my college and i think it will be complete by sep 2024.
But I have cleared SSC CHSL and joining will be in 4 months from now and for me to join it, I'll have to drop out from my college as government doesn't allow you to do job and a regular job simultaneously.
Should I dropout (considering it's a tier 3 college) and join the job and complete my graduation from an open University
or
Should I ignore the job offer and continue my graduation?

2023.05.28 06:19 NJ-Khoury I'm just fed up with all this (moving back home as a disabled person)

TW is for mentions of abuse and sexual assault, no intense descriptions.
I spent my 20s bouncing around living situations because my mom died without warning right before my High School graduation. We grew up dirt poor and I found out a few years ago that she was months behind on rent too, but the house was owned by my grandparents or else we would have been homeless.
A little over a decade later, I found out that a cousin had been pulling the strings behind the scenes and manipulated my grandfather to change over his will. I didn't find out about this until everything was all said and done. My college fund was taken as well, since it was in my mom and grandmother's name, so he got control of it. My cousin even got the house I was told in my teens that I would likely inherit.
The ONLY thing that didn't get stolen through elder abuse was an irrevocable trust set up in the early 90s by my grandparents. I'm the beneficary, and a certified financial planner who has been a friend of the family since the 80s is the trustee. Basically, I can't get money out of it on my own, I have to go through her and she's legally obligated to act in my best interests. Apparently, there was SOME money my cousin didn't know about that went into the trust per my grandmother's will. However, I'm no "trust fund baby". I can't go out and buy luxury items let alone rely on the Trust to pay all my living expenses for the rest of my life.
Here's another wonderful kicker: I'm disabled physically and mentally. Autism spectrum, PTSD, generalized anxiety and major depression (likely related to the trauma and distress over the years). I was born with stickler Syndrome, which is a degenerative connective tissue disorder. Marfan and Ehlers Danlos are more well-known but fall under the same general umbrella, but Stickler is basically that your body doesn't produce collagen correctly, leading to bone, heart, vision, and hearing problems varying in degree from person to person.
I already have severe enough joint problems that physical therapy can't fix. I have fissures, cysts, and completely worn down cartilage and I'm only in my early 30's. I can't walk or stand for more than 20 minutes without severe pain and risk of falls, and I'm not supposed to use stairs frequently. Even sitting for more than 4hrs a day with breaks causes pain.
I've also been having neurological issues including 24+hr headaches and week+ long vertigo that seems to crop up randomly (even today, I was staring right at my laptop screen when I suddenly felt like I was drunk for no reason) and am awaiting an appointment for imaging tests and possibly Multiple Sclerosis testing. All of these things- diagnosed and not yet diagnosed combined, primary care doctors and therapists have agreed that I should be on social security and shouldn't exacerbate some of my conditions by continuing to work (unless I can find something that's fully accommodating).
I grew up in PA but bounced all around during my housing instability. The year before Covid, I was put back into housing instability when my housemate could no longer afford her inherited home and had to sell, so I had to leave the first stable and SAFE home I'd had in almost a decade, and my accommodating job as a result. I struggled to find that stability again, and while Covid was the first time I felt like I wasn't under pressure to find that stability immediately (I was living with a friend) it did fuck up my chances of finding employment once things started opening up again. My friend wanted his rec room back and told me I needed to move out (something he says he now regrets doing, but I understand). My only option was to move with an online friend in CA.
That went spectacularly, by which I mean he turned out to be incredibly histrionic and unstable and almost rendered me homeless. Other online friends helped shack me up in a motel and then let me couch crash for a bit. I ended up losing half my stuff including things from my mom and all my art from the past decade, because he kept changing the goalposts on how and when I could come get my stuff, and technically I was living with him off his lease, and didn't want to render him and his 7yo homeless by trying to take legal action.
My partner is one of his former best friends. Former because he's completed disgusted by what was done to me, and has heard a lot of flat-out lies from this person as to what happened. Shit like saying "multiple therapists warned me about him" to make me look like a terrible person, when 1. He only had 1 therapist and she moved out of network 2 months before this went down so he had none. 2. Feeding a patient's negative thoughts about someone based on hearsay and conjecture is a MASSIVE liability and something any therapist worth their salt knows not to do.
I was working night audit at a small hotel from February of last year until December, when I was immediately pulled and put on state disability by my primary care doctor after a fall while I was alone at work. California's state disability aid is based off taxed income, so there's a limit to how long you can use it. Mine runs out July 1st and after that I have no income and can't work. In CALIFORNIA. A lot of our homeless are disabled because it's so impossible to live in this state if you can't work full time.
I will be applying for SSI, but up until last February, I had NO medical records due to not being able to afford health insurance or stay in one place long enough for appointments. I had my PTSD and depression diagnosis, but not even records of my Stickler birth defect. You need ample documentation to apply for Social Security, and with a rare birth defect and specialists often having to be scheduled months in advance, that's not quick and easy task. I'll FINALLY be applying late this summer.
I acknowledge I'm WAY luckier than most people in my situation, because of the Trust, but that's where my current hurdles are. Like I said, I can't just pull from it willy-nilly, which I'm grateful for in some ways as panic-spending might have depleted me a while ago.
Back in April, the Trustee said that I could get a mobile home in a park back home in east PA, up to 75k$ budget. There are homes in that range, but I also have to keep in mind location and lot rent. With SSI being 914$ federally (PA has no state supplement), obviously I can't go for a park with a 800+ lot rent even with assistance programs like SNAP and LIHEAP. PA isn't a rent capped state thanks to a lot of legislators owning rental properties, so landlords can legally increase rent by a hundred per year (and they have). Ever since the housing crisis, mobile home parks have become the affordable option, and some parks have been bought up by corporations who are trying to price out Social Security recipients so they can get more money from people trying to get out of apartment living but who can afford lot rents closer to apartment rent costs.
Today, my top choice home got scooped up, and the Trustee is saying that she would rather I move back and rent so I can go see the mobile homes in person rather than relying on a local friend to do the tour with me on video call. Which, yes, I agree, except...
How the fuck am I supposed to do that when no apartment- independently or company owned- will rent to me when I am not employed and my only source of income is an irrevocable Trust? My credit score is 684 and climbing, I have no debt history, my current housemates can vouch for me in terms of cleanliness, respect, and always paying rent in advance. Even with all that, landlords want things like last two pay stubs, proof of 2-3x rent in stable income, or someone else who has those things to be on the lease with me.
Room rentals? Also borderline impossible. It took me almost half a year to find my current room rental. I have a cat with an ESA letter, but that doesn't allow me past no pets policies in most room rentals. I also got ghosted more than half a dozen times when I was talking with someone about a rental and then informed them I'm transgender, which could be anything, but I'm willing to wager more often than not it was discriminatory. My physical disability also means I can't get anything that requires frequent stair use, like a basement or upper level room rental, or one of the many split-level historic homes that have been converted into the only low-income apartments in the area. There's even apartment buildings so old they don't legally need to have elevators.
Section 811 exists for disabled folks, but county and city housing agency I contacted either doesn't have it, or it requires you to already be in crisis and unhoused. Senior centers can accept up to 20% resident population that's non-elderly but disabled, but either have NYC luxury apartment prices because of the amenities, or a huge buy-in.
I'm just so. Utterly fucking exhausted.
I spent most of my formative adult years just trying to get stability, while spending my formative childhood years in deep poverty with a mother whose mental health was deeply impacted by a stroke she suffered when I was 16 who laid her hands on my throat once, would alternate between being a loving "hip" mom and screaming at me over mundane bullshit, and would constantly tell me that she could have another stroke and die if I upset her. In my housing instability, I've been sexually assaulted, verbally harassed, or just lived with couples who were constantly fighting.
I want a stable and safe home where I'm not at risk of having to move within ten years. Housing in general is ridiculous, but it's like for us disabled folks, unless we have family or a spouse to live with? Not even the housing options meant to keep us from ending up homeless are available.
I already have my plane ticket (fully refundable) back home for September 9th since I had to book early to get a good deal and lock in my cat's registration for the flight.
I'm just worried that even though I have an opportunity a lot of struggling people don't, I won't even be able to get anything.
If I'm being forced to find a rental, it would be a miracle if I find something in time that won't turn me away for having a cat, relying on Trust for income, being queer, or being unable to use stairs.
I don't want to settle for a mobile home, but likewise, I honestly just want safety and stability. I don't care if it's fucking grandma floral wallpaper and 70's bicolour shag carpet everywhere. It's mine, and the Social security administration is going to force me to spend before I hit 2k$ in assets anyway, may as well throw an entire Lowe's at it.
I know this is a lot, and I honestly don't expect anyone to read it, but I'm so fucking tired and I just want stability before I die (of old age or health, since I guess I'm genetically per-disposed to breast cancer and strokes on top of the rest of all this shit).

2023.05.28 05:47 dolcecrossing Reverse sneezing or something else?

Hi, I’m posting because I’m honestly desperate for help, advice, ideas on what could be happening with my dog.
Pet info: Dog, 13, female/spayed, chihuahua, about 3 lbs, located in Arizona (Phoenix area). Overall healthy pup aside from dental problems and cataracts, full of energy even at 13, active.
My dog has never had a problem with reverse sneezing until about February this year. After figuring out that what she was doing was reverse sneezing and relatively safe and painless we just let it go and sometimes would plug her nose or rub her throat. About a month or two into it she was doing it a lot more, sometimes multiple times in an hour, so I did a chat with a vet tech through VCA and they suggested I take her to the emergency vet as they had a tool to see into her nose that my regular vet did not. When we took her we were told they couldn’t see anything and that it was just reverse sneezing. I asked if it could be allergies to which I was told I could try Benadryl in a very small dose for her. I did and it didn’t really do much past making her sleep a bit more. Then about a week ago she was reverse sneezing, harder than usual and pulling her head in towards her body as if she was struggling to swallow/breathe in, and started yelping and crying during it. I made an appointment and was able to be seen the next day by my regular vet. They did see she needs some teeth taken out, but again were very confused as to what could be causing pain during the reverse sneeze. They gave her a shot for allergies, and did a senior blood test to make sure she could go under for her extractions. Today she is in pain again, and basically screaming when she does reverse sneeze. She was also whining when my husband would try to pick her up to take her outside. I am calling the vet in the morning and keeping her as comfortable as I can, but with our own vet not being sure as to the cause I was hoping someone here had any ideas or experiences I could bring up to them? I’m scared for my dog, I’m willingly getting into debt with vet care because I don’t want her to be in pain. Any advice or ideas please.
Extra info, her blood test did show a possible issue with her kidneys, which she will need further tests for. She is blind so she sometimes doesn’t get her own water and we need to force her to drink (we kindly force her of course, by putting the plate near her mouth). Not sure if relevant.

2023.05.28 05:07 YourLittlePetWolf Help on getting birth certificate and SSC from bio father.

As the title states I am trying to retrieve a birth certificate from my biological father. It is not for me. It’s for my half sister who is 18. He kicked her out back in 2022 and finally found my insta to contact me.
My current plan is to have her send him a single message stating “As I am no longer living under your roof I need you to hand over my BC and SSC please. If you refuse you will force me to involve law enforcement. We can meet at public place at x time.” If this a good idea or should I go a different route? He is known for being very abusive and manipulative. Which is why I want it in a public place and I will be recording every interaction as well (hence why a message rather than call)
She just recently graduated from high school and since being 18 she can no longer cash her checks because she has no form of I.D. at all. No permits, drivers license, state I.D. Nothing.
I can say thankfully she had a very loving friend and family of hers who took her in during the time she was kicked out till she found me to watch after her but even they can only do so much.
I’m not looking to go after him or anything like that I just want the easiest way possible to get these so we can get her moving on with her life and forgetting all about him and not having to worry. Right now Reddit is my only place to turn to, I don’t wanna stress my mother with this as she’s dealing with other things and I know she can’t do much as she is not related to her at all.
Edit to add context: when I say abusive and manipulative I don’t mean in little ways. I’ll give my own personal examples the I experienced
  1. I was forced into therapy after an attempt on my life and I remember when he would take me he would be sitting in the room the entire time watching me with “the look” whereas when my mom took me she would only come in when I said it was ok.
  2. One time on a mandatory visit to his place I had a break down and wanted to just leave because he was yelling at me over something I can’t remember, all I remember is I needed to get away. When I tried walking away he grabbed my arm, I tried to pull away (mind you I’m a 4’8 MAYBE 85-90lbs and 11yo and he’s a 5’5 230-250lbs? Retired vet.) When I tried pulling away he got angry, put his hand around my neck and took me to the floor and held me there in some hold (his arms around me and his legs around my legs.) and held me there until my mother showed up and was able to make him let me go.
  3. He got upset I wouldn’t be a picture (trauma thing for me) and he threw his phone across the room and started yelling at me
  4. When I was able to sit in one time on my middle sisters therapy session he was there talking the whole time and talking bad about her the whole time and the therapist was agreeing with him!! I get we should head therapist warning but my sister didn’t say a single word the entire 30 minutes I was there (my father kicked me out the room. Not my sister. Him. I even turned to her to ask her if she wanted me to leave and she cried and didn’t say anything while he said “it’s not up to her. I’m telling you to leave so get out and don’t come back”)
  5. That same day as the therapy session he told me and my mother he will put his own happiness before his kids. Said my sisters didn’t love me and just “put up with me” and blocked me on everything on his phone AND there phone. (He always had them and was tracking them)
Just the 5 I can remember right off the top of my head.
