2021.10.15 22:38 _godeatgod I’ve never liked driving in Brooklyn. (Pt 2)
I must’ve blacked out.
I woke up in a hospital bed, in a pure white room, with pure white bedsheets. There was a small television hanging in the far-left upper corner of the room, opposite the door. It was on, but there’s no sound.
I looked around and saw my mother and father, sobbing uncontrollably. Divorced since I was 3 years old, seeing them together again, embracing as they did on their wedding day, made me cry. “Dad… Mom…” I said, weakly. They didn’t react.
My step-mother, dad’s current wife, was also there but she didn’t seem to be too happy with the situation. I saw a tinge of jealousy in her eyes while my parents coped with whatever I was going through. She never liked my mother, and as I got older, I learned she never liked me either.
It was blatantly obvious now. Her jealousy and selfishness of the situation made me mad. I wanted her gone, but she wasn’t going anywhere. She was there for my father – not for me.
My husband sat on the floor with his hands to his head, crying and holding the stuffed platypus toy he gave to me on our second date. Nearly 13 years later, and I still love that thing so much.
I found my sister sitting in the chair next to the window, staring at the wall, looking depressed and disconnected. I tried to get her attention, to reach out and hold her hand, but there was no reaction from her.
There was no reaction from anyone.
A nurse entered the room and asked for everyone to let me rest and to come check up on me later. I tried saying goodbye to my family, but no words escaped my lips. I began to panic as they left, I didn’t want to be left alone like this.
Am I even awake? Is this a dream?
The nurse was the last to leave, following my husband out. Before she disappeared through the threshold of the door, she looked back at me and said “I’ll be right back to explain everything in just a minute.” She finally left the room, and I was accompanied by eerie silence.
It was too silent.
I fiddled with the TV remote to see if I could change the channel or at least turn the volume up. Nothing happened. Maybe the batteries died?
I waited around for what felt like an hour, but realistically was only probably about 15 minutes. Impatient and annoyed, I get out of my bed and take my IV stand along with me, shuffling towards the door to try and find that nurse.
When I opened the door, it was like Grand Central Station.
There were hundreds of patients connected to IVs in hospital gowns, the main floor and halls bustling with movement by those who were just as confused and scared as I was, all of them accompanied by nurses that were dressed like they’re from the 50s.
I tried to get someone’s attention by flagging down one of the solo nurses. When she turned around, I was taken aback. She was a spitting image of Kat Dennings – but she was no Kat. Her appearance screamed “Southern Belle” – her voice soothing and motherly, her hospitality felt close and personal.
“Hey, Darlin’! How are you feelin’?” she asked me with a thick drawl.
“Confused?” I responded. I still had no idea what was happening.
She told me that everything is going to be alright, that I’m in good hands and that I’ll be at peace. Still confused, I looked at her with an arched eyebrow. That doesn’t answer anything.
“Can you please explain? Because I’ve been trying to get answers all day today, and I feel like I’m losing my mind. No one is helping me understand what the hell is happening, and I can’t afford to be in this hospital for an extended amount of ti-“
“Baby, baby, slow down…” she said. “It’s alright. I promise you, it’s alright. But you need to promise me something, too.”
I waited silently for her to tell me.
“Just, promise me that when he comes to you, you won’t look him in the eyes.”
“Who?” I replied.
“I can’t tell you. I really wish I could baby, but I can’t. You’ll know him when you see him. Just please don’t look him in the eyes. You need to promise me, baby. Please.”
A little frightened, but still annoyed with not getting answers, I say “okay” and she escorted me back to my room. I got in bed, and she made sure that I was comfortable and content before leaving me alone again.
“I’ll be back to check in on you in a few,” she said. “Just please please please remember not to look him in the eyes when he comes by.”
Still confused, I asked her who she’s talking about. She wouldn’t tell me.
The way she spoke about this man worried me. Clearly, he was coming for me either way. The adamant nature of her concerns solidified the fact that maybe this was a really big deal, and even though I didn’t understand, it seemed like an important enough rule to abide by.
Just don’t look him in the eyes, I thought. Simple enough.
But something felt wrong about all of this.
Who is this man?
(part 3 coming soon)

Any good high 70s-80 defenders. I do LFC career mode and like going to 2nd team when 1st team is a little tired. The 2nd team defenses are trash though. Any suggestions?

Hello and thanks for looking! I am selling my Oppo PM-3s as they are just not getting the use that I intended for them. I purchased them used earlier this year, so the wear on the headband and earpads was there when I purchased them (I've used them no more than 5 times for only a very short period.)
I am asking $250 shipped or $230 local cash. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you might have!
I don't have any trades on this sub, but do have trading history on funkopop for reference.

2021.10.15 22:38 iamnotmilesdavis Difference between ordering from dealer vs website?
I have a Bronco reservation I made 5/28/21. Yesterday I went to the dealer (that I have the reservation with) to place an order. I gave them a $500 deposit. Today they placed the order (I have a preview order sheet with an order number, priority code, etc).
But today I also received an email from Ford saying that I can place my order online. Looks like I can also place an order this way and (so far) it doesn't reflect the order that I placed with my dealer. I called the sales guy and he assured me the order is placed and he will keep me up to date.
Couple questions: 1) Will the Ford website reflect the order that I placed with my dealer?
2) Is there any advantage to placing an order directly online vs with the dealer?
Asking because I've heard dealers pulling shady things and my dealer isn't particularly good at communicating with me.

2021.10.15 22:38 BrantB123 My GF is very bipolar and it’s the #1 problem in our relationship.
As the title says my GF is very bipolar. She doesn’t take medicine, doesn’t go to therapy, and won’t let me help her find any of these resources. She’ll say she’s going to do it but then doesn’t. She treats me like shit when she’s mad or has an episode. Any problem we have she gets extremely mad and tries to leave and then calms down and apologizes and says she can’t help it. She doesn’t try to talk out any problems and when she does she’ll just get mad and shut down again. She just broke up with me last night because she asked me to go pick up her brother from school and I took a 2 minute detour to give my friend (someone she doesn’t like) something that I already planned on giving them before she called me to pick up her brother. I’m so tired of this and I don’t know what to do. I want to just leave and be done with it and hope she gets her shit together and comes back but I’m afraid she never will. Aside from all this when we’re good she makes me really happy and I feel loved and wanted. I love her a lot so I don’t know what to do. I know the best option is to separate myself and hope she gets her shit together but what if she never comes back?

I recently purchased a Noctua NH-L9i for an Intel build. The Heatsink is missing one mounting screw part number NM-IBT4. Does anyone know where I could purchase said screw? Noctua sells a kit with similar HW but its AMD specific.
