2022.01.26 17:31 Tzntch Need help dealing with "OCD" behavior
I have had this behavior since as long as I can remember, way back when I was a little kid. I don't know if it is technically a stim or not. As someone else talks, or as I think or talk to myself, I count the syllables of words in a sentence with the tiniest movements of my fingers. Then, often, I will count the total words in the sentence. I get particularly satisfied if there is a pattern ie. the syllables are double the words, or the syllables go in a pattern of 1,2,1,2,1,2; or three words comprise 6 syllables total through the first word being 1 syllable, the second word being 2 syllables and the third word being 3 syllables.
Now that you get what I mean, to the main point: I need help quitting this lifelong habit. Nowadays, as a grown-ass man in his late 20s, with a serious career, I find this behavior simply a lingering habit that is annoying and sometimes stifling as I've paid more attention to my counting than what someone has said, albeit I don't let it happen when very serious discussion is at hand.
Can anyone give advice on quitting what is possibly a stim or even substituting it for a less distracting stim? I greatly appreciate any help.

2022.01.26 17:31 ephemeral__forest Removing cat hair from furniture?
Note to preface this: I am allergic to cats.
I currently live with a roommate that has a cat. Since she got the cat, the cat chose my couch as her favorite place to sit/lay, as well as her favorite scratching post. I put items in the way of the legs/edges of the sofa so she could no longer get to those parts to scratch, and that stopped. She continued laying on the couch though. I can’t blame her, as it’s definitely more comfortable than my roommate’s futon. Eventually, due to my allergies, I got an old large sheet from my mom that I laid over the couch so that the cat wouldn’t be directly on the surface anymore. Before I put the sheet on I did use a lint roller on as much of the surface as possible. Now, the last time I used my couch, I took the sheet off to sit down with my partner and watch a movie. Afterwards, all of my exposed skin was itchy and I was having trouble breathing. I haven’t used the couch since. Essentially, if I want to use it, I have to put on an outfit that completely covers my skin, and make sure I don’t touch my face after touching the couch, then change my outfit immediately after when I go to my room (the only room the cat isn’t allowed in).
All of this being said, what are the best ways to get rid of the hair for good? Do I need to hire a professional? When I move out of here eventually (not anytime soon, but somewhere down the line), that’s when I plan to do a deep clean of the couch, so it’s not rush, but I’m just thinking ahead.

2022.01.26 17:31 sleeptalkingdune Controversial opinion about being bisexual in an unaccepting country? (trigger: bi stereotype)
Backstory: I had my first experience with a girl in 2020. The past two years have been absolutely traumatic, as I live in a homophobic country (Serbia) and have only dated guys before. The girl I was 'seeing' was a lesbian, and very toxic and unstable, making the first time experience even harder for me. She had no patience with me as my world was turned upside down trying to figure out my sexuality. A year after I cut ties with her, I am still struggling with my sexuality, my relationship with my mom which took a toll since then, and the generalized unfairness of the world and the hate I feel towards life for making it so hard to love. But I am trying, I've been in therapy and am working on it.
One thing that generally has been on my mind a lot ever since, is the "bi people end up in straight relationships" stereotype. The problem I have with this stereotype is that I cannot prove that I, myself, won't end up that way because it's easier. I don't think I am mentally strong enough to have a same sex relationship in this society. I am frustrated and mad that I cannot say that that stereotype is not true (for me). I am afraid that I will never work through this internalized biphobia and have the guts to seek out a girl again. The only way I feel like I could was if I moved to a more accepting country, where I would feel more free to date girls. But even then, my whole life as I knew it would be back at home, and not being free to talk about it to family and not-so-close friends would be absolutely suffocating. Right now, I am only swiping left on guys because I am afraid of getting close to a girl again, and all the problems that come along with dating the same gender. I have only ever dated guys before, and going from that socially acceptable thing to dating a girl and being afraid of what I can say to who in fear of being judged and hated was such a horrible transition. It is just so much easier to date the opposite gender :(
I told my therapist I feel guilty because of all this, and because I didn't get better this year because I fought through the trauma and beat my biphobia, but simply because I got away from the situation to not fall apart even more. My depression was eating me alive with that girl, and cutting ties was the only thing I could have done for my mental health back then. I don't know If I will ever recover enough to try again. Is that such a horrible thing? Is choosing to seek out the opposite sex to date because it's easier in this country and not personally triggering selfish? I feel like I am making us bi people look bad and confirming the many biphobic stereotypes we are faced with.

2022.01.26 17:31 SweetSexyDeath Possession tactics that can counter?
SIGH..... I have accepted that I had at tactics. I'm constantly brainstorming and coming up with these new tactics I think could really work and they never really pan out. Idk if it's my baseline philosophy in my head of "this tactic needs to be able to do it all" in addition to me just not being great at tactics, but I've been torched a lot lol. And whenever I download tactics I feel... Bad but I don't think I can stomach Another Bad Creation😵. Help with either would be great, help on both godly!
Thanks in advance!

If I did ASTR 1010(lab and lecture) at another school and transfered it, would it count as a lab science course? It transfers on the transfer equivalency table as credits but is it a valid lab science course?

It is a zosi DVR camera system with pre installed hard drive. I got the hard drive out and I have the website to recover video. I’m just not sure what exactly I need to connect to my laptop and where that cable goes into the drive? Someone was able to get into my system , make themselves admin and log me out. I didn’t notice until my account stopped working and they started turning off cameras and deleting videos. So now they have deleted a lot of data but what I need to see is in the last week

2022.01.26 17:31 days_sunny Can someone explain to me like I’m 5 why most stocks are having the same trajectory?
My brain is the smoothest of the smooth when it comes to understanding the stock market and all I know is buy, hodl and DRS my favorite stock. So why are most of these stocks’ movement pretty much the same?
I also noticed on most days, for example, that Lowes and Home Depot pretty much always have the same movement. Does it have anything to do with the industry that a company is in or what? Thanks in advance apes.

2022.01.26 17:31 eoin54321 Be honest.
Was watching a new show called Euphoria.
In it there's a character called jules, a man that transitioned to a woman (she still has a penis) and is also bisexual.
In the show this character gets into a sexual relationship with a female character (they're both the same age).
Would you be ok with your teenage daughter having a sexual relationship with a bisexual transgender person?
