1) you care too much about something that doesn't matter. instead focus your energy on something that would benefit you
2) to get to the other side
My wife and I are going trough our second miscarriage after 3 years trying to have a child. How do I stay strong and keep our relationship strong?
miscarriage is more common than people think, with an estimated one out of every four pregnancies resulting in a miscarriage. It sucks, it hurts, but keep trying.
a few years back, both my sister and my sister-in-law, living in different countries, both miscarried on the same day. both of them had children later
I know it hurts, but it's only temporary. And if it keeps happening, seek help from medical professionals.
Thanks for the support and the understanding of the situation! I'm mostly broken as my wife is. But we are OK and happy.It gets easier with time, and I must say... This situation is making us even stronger as a couple. The question was more of a "get something that hurts me off my chest". For sure wasnt expecting such heartwelming responses! Thanks for the support and honest "advice".
Talk to your wife about how it makes you feel, ask her how she feels about it. You don't need to be strong all the time, you can show her (or other people) that things affect you, it's ok to break down some times. Don't focus on what you don't have or have lost, but focus on what you do have (a beautiful wife that loves you). don't dwell on the past or things you can't control, look towards the future.
My reply up there is valid to you to 😁 thanks.
I know it's hard, but after having 3 miscarriages my mom decided to take a foster kid.
He is 11 now and I really love my little brother.
Reply to the first comment is for you to. Many thanks
So sorry to hear what you're going through. I've been there myself. We had 4 kids, then lost 2, and finally had one more (with great difficulty). You hurt but you know she hurts worse and you know there's nothing you can do to fix it.
It's something that noone likes to talk about and most don't like to hear about (doesn't make for pleasant dinner conversation), so hardly anyone does. But for us many friends from church, work, and neighborhood came to us and shared that they had been through the same thing. It's like you wake up one day and find that you're a part of a huge club that you never knew existed and never wanted to be a part of. It was helpful and comforting in a painful sort of way.
Nothing can fix it (as you know), but it's ok to be broken together. Love each other and allow yourselves to hurt. Be there for each other and allow your friends to be there for you too. It's natural to want to shut everyone out when you're hurting, but don't. There's a beautiful joy in being able to share someone else's pain with them so they don't have to bear it themselves. Do that... and give it time. Let it pull you together instead of pull you apart. And then cherish each day you have with her.
I realize that this is starting to sound like a sappy greeting card, but this is heartfelt advise from someone who has been there.
If you decide to try again, get a doctor who has dealt with patients who have had multiple miscarriages. They are hard to find, but they are out there. Then start taking a close look at your wife's hormones. Everything that the body does is signaled and regulated through hormones, especially in pregnancy, and any unexpected imbalance can spell disaster, especially with progesterone (which can trigger everything to start moving too early if it drops too soon - all too common problem).
And if you decide not to try again, that's ok. You found each other, which is more than many get, and you are blessed. I hope you make the most of your lives together, Just be there for each other. And good luck with whatever you decide. Best wishes, and God bless you both.
Hi... I'm truelly speachless.
Never thought I would get so much sympathy and kindness from a community. Specially from a giveaway community... I can't thank you enought for the words, and for letting us know we are not alone in this fight.
We are trying again, the doctors gave us green light to start trying again... Our hopes will be up, and now, even stronger! Thanks for words... Can't really thank you and the others enough..
The others have already given such good responses, just wanted to say hang in there and I'm so glad you and your wife have each other to lean on each other during such a heartbreaking experience. Makes all the difference. Hope that whatever the future may hold will bring you love and happiness, wishing you both the best. :)
One more kind word its allways wellcome! thank you very much for the support!
I'm slowly starting to lose hope in finding a job. Moreover, my family doesn't support me and they are not aware at all of how work market works nowdays in Italy. (We argue everyday)
So I feel this urge of finding something, while slowly beginning to think I've only wasted 5 years of my life in university.
How do I deal with this s...tuff?
damn, that sucks. I'm not too proud to flip burgers, and there's always a shortage of people willing to clean toilets for a living. It's easier to find a job when you have a job, and it sucks to not be able to support yourself, so, take whatever you can get.
alternatively, print off some business cards and/or a stack of resumes, and go knocking door to door at every business in town, hand them to everyone you see in a suit, at traffic stops by industrial parks, just about everywhere. It'll take some time, but, someone will be impressed with your grit
I totally agree. That urge to find something is probably a good one. If you have a job (any job) it's often easier to find another. And it can help take the edge off of the financial and emotional pressure that you're feeling. And you never know... it might lead to other opportunities that you never would have found otherwise. "Holding out for your dream job" is a good way to have no job. Don't be afraid to explore, take chances, see what life has to offer, and enjoy the ride. Best wishes, and God bless.
Thank you very much!
As I said, I'm not picky, I just want to gain some valuable experience, otherwise in a couple of month, I'll being doing this all over again.
Well, It's not that I'm being picky, but I am trying to stick to a MA related (or at least BA) job, otherwise I wouldn't get any experience and I'll be stuck in this limbo forever.
yeah, I'm kinda doing that right now, hope it will lead me somewhere ^^
Thank you very much for your time!
Just because you take an unrelated job doesn't mean you have to stop looking. It just means you have some income, and some pride.
This is a difficult question because it also require another answer. Did you like what you did at the University ? I suppose that if you have a Master degree, you probably do. Are you willing to leave your country ? The situation in Italy may be pretty bad, but you do have two advantages in your hands : You have a master degree and you can speak English as well as Italian.
Put that into perspective, don't limit your options, you have more than you think you do.
I did, a lot. I graduated in Marketing and Corporate Communication, full marks with honors.
Of course I am, I'm not wasting my degree for the sake of remaining here.
I'm starting to check also other opportunities abroad (I got also a pretty solid B2 in French), let's hope I'd have a better chance.
Thank you for your advices ^^
This is a little funny, because being French myself I can give you a bonus advice. The Canada is hiring a lot of French/English speakers the reason being that a part of the country speaks French and the other English. Look in that direction, you'll have more chances to land and job and to be paid more because you speak three languages (and maybe we'll meet there in a few years as we're aiming to move there with my partner once he's done with his studies).
I don't think I'll have the guts to move to the other part of the world right now. Maybe next year, as my partner is finishing his phd, but untill then, I'd rather stick to Europe, for the moment.
Moving so far away isn't something you do within weeks or months, you have to plan ahead. You should discuss about that with them, the place where you'll live is something to consider together carefully and prepare together if you decide to move far away from where you currently are.
move my friend, come ho fatto io. ah, il libro di poesie che mi hai raccomandato tempo fa mi attende a casa in italia per le vacanze di natale ;)
Mi sono data un ultimatum qui.
Poi mi darò allegramente, che voi fa'.
Mi sono andata a ricercare la conversazione per controllare che libro fosse! Allora aspetterò Natale per sapere se il buon Mari ti sarà piaciuto!
perfetto - se vuoi consigli o parlare (anche di altro eh) aggiungimi su steam! ne ho girati di paesi in europa prima di trovare finalmente un lavoro pagato abbastanza (ovvio se avessi avuto laurea in ingegneria o simili sarebbe stato molto piu' facile)
I passed through that.
I couldn't even get a bloody job interview after years of efforts for a hard university degree (same country of you).
I decided to leave to another country.
I landed my 1st job in 3 weeks upon arrival.
Sometimes it is like when you lose the keys and look for them in the wrong place, you can look forever and never find them.
In cosa ti sei laureato? Non per farmi gli affari tuoi...
Ti sei trasferito prima di trovare lavoro e senza appoggi? Ora come ora io lo vedo ancora come un passo nel vuoto troppo grande.
Ti ho risposto da un'altra parte
should I stay or should I go?
Watch "Stranger Things" again
FreeBSD or OpenBSD?
Definitely free BDSM. and if you have any kind of privacy concerns, I wouldn't do BDSM out in the open
more seriously, most people prefer FreeBSD, so unless you're very uptight about security, I'd use that; if security is your main concern, OpenBSD is better
Should I leave my country?
1) Is your country a shithole?
Yes - leave
No - Question 2
2) Do you have a good life?
Yes - stay
No - Question 3
3) are you willing to give up everyone you know, and basically gamble your entire life that your future will be better?
Yes - question 4
No - stay
4) are you sure?
yes - Question 5
No - stay
5) Are you crazy?
Yes - go
No - go
well, this gave more questions than answers
my quick answer is, if you have a good life, stay. If your life is shit, try to fix it. I've moved country several times, and it's never easy.
Even more important question would be "Is it easy for you to move to another country?" If the answer is yes. Then sure. Hell. Why not?
it's not easy but this place is going Venezuela any time
I love my country, but I would not sink with it
Man, move, try to go to a first world place.
Believe me, its worth it.
Well, right now is impossible. If things don't go to hell I'll try to get out as soon as I graduate from college. This is my last year and honestly that's all I was waiting for to leave anyway.
what should i do if im behind on over 20 assignments
Spend some more time on steam gifts. I am sure the assignments will keep piling up till they reach forth sky.
My advice: just focus on 1 assignment until it is done. Then go to the next. Start with the easiest/fastest to make the number 20 get smaller more quickly. If you think about 20 you'll become overwhelmed. Don't think of running a marathon, just take one step at a time. :)
i have this important project i cant finish
should i quit it or try harder for the promotion?
Just let it go ...
ask for help
Should I answer the others?
Lost my first job to outsourcing, lost my second job to cheaper laborers from India and Mexico, lost my third job to automated robots.
Will I ever find employment with job security, stability and decent wage ?
not in this century
Everytime I check this topic I must think of the "Senpai of the pool" meme :D
before that, comic books, before that TV, before that, movies, before that, music, and before that books.
All 'new' forms of entertainment are deemed evil by older generations
I am 23, I have Asperger's, I never had friends because I have tremendous difficulties with social interaction. I thought I could get away with just living in a basement (figuratively speaking), working (I work from home) and playing video games my entire life. Which I've been doing for the past 3 years now, but this month depression hit me. I suddenly started to crave for interaction with real people - but it's too late now, over the years I've lost even the little social skills I had, even if I had any at all. No hope.
What is the way out?
seriously, though, try to find an activity that you enjoy, and join a club of some sort. Go with the intent of enjoying the activity, not the intent of picking up friends, but don't be afraid to interact. It'll happen
how to stop procrastinating dissertation?
Pay yourself to write it. Finish X pages, and you can have chocolate/beer/sex worker (whatever your pleasure). Do another X pages and you can have more beer/sex/chocolate. etc.
"Don’t speak words that can hurt . You do not know whenever you will meet them again. Always give them good memories, it can be your last journey with them. "
should I try a peanutbutter jelly sandwich or should I just assume it's gross like I did all my life?
If you feel adventurous, go for it. If not, wait until you are really hungry.
Do you have peanut butter? Do you have jelly? Do you have bread?
Just try the fucking thing, worst that can happen is that you spit it out, wash away the taste with a drink, and go back to hating it like you did before
I eat one nearly every day (crunchy peanut butter and grape jelly on white bread) :P
Main question - is it [FREE] in Steam?
What does the word life mean. Is it similar to the word food?
I prefer food that was once alive, so, yeah, why not?
i feel like i'm becoming insane 🤯
can i order two number 1 with extra cheese then
How will I shatter my Steam backlog and raise a child?
Is there also an option that doesn't make support rip me from valuable advise like here in this topic? They can be mean like that :/
Long term plan: Raise your child to shatter your Steam backlog.
Heh, sounds like a plan!
"What are you doing outside?! You know you're not allowed to play in the back yard. Get back to the basement. No supper for you until you finish that game young lady!" o_O
How does one give advise to strangers on the internet?
I have huge depression and lost my ability to communicate with people. Please tell me to fix that.
Seriously, though, psychological help is probably your best bet
I actually smoke weed. But it doesn't help much.
you should try a psychologist
How do I break the news to someone, to tell them that they are a retard, without upsetting them?
I'm reminded of an expression "it's never a good time to tell someone that their grandmother died"
I strongly suggest using a thesaurus to look for some less-offensive words, like moron, or idiot.
I have an elaborate plan about my suicide,it gives me comfort, but also it's real.
seriously, though, talk to someone. a friend, a priest, a shrink, a bartender, whatever. Talking helps
I didn't try a priest yet. The thing is the last time when I entered a church the cross fell.
thats a sign for u, it means that jesus welcomes u.
still if u can'T find someone to talk, add me over steam I am eager to listen and glad if I can be of use to u
