2023.03.22 10:33 maxmandragoran Desperate husband of wife, 15 weeks pregnant with twins, uncontrollably angry with me and wants divorce. I'm mad with worry. (Very long post)
We've been married 8 years, have no kids but had two 2 miscarriages in the past 6 years, which took a toll on our marriage.
The 1st miscarriage in 2017 was at 17 weeks, a baby girl we wanted to name Joy. We were both devastated but she believes she grieved more than I did, although I was always the one who had hoped for children while she never wanted any up until then.
The 2nd miscarriage in 2020 was around 12 weeks. It was the first several months of the pandemic. We work in a hospital and the intensity of my duties kept me away for days at a time. Even when we met, I tried to keep a distance to keep her safe from possibly catching the virus, which she understood at that time because the Covid situation then was very severe worldwide and there was still a lot we didn't know about it.
But after miscarriage, she resented me bitterly. She then decided we'd be better off without kids. I didn't want to cause her any more grief, so I went along. Since then, it's been up and down, mostly downs. Eventually I started to spend even more time at work to avoid her wrath at home. We still see each other at the workplace (she's another department) but at least it's civil.
Last year, through a series of misunderstandings, she started to accuse me of having an affair with our colleague. This colleague was my college ex, we moved on 20 years ago, which my wife knew about too. I swore my innocence repeatedly but she refused to accept it. We argued for months. In the process, I said some nasty words, said it wouldn't be surprising if I left her for that woman since my wife was such a terror. I deeply regret it now. I don't think she herself truly believes, but she took my words as admission of the non-existent affair and demanded a divorce.
We started proceedings and separated last April. She still lives in our house while I've practically moved into my office. But on occasions when I returned home to collect stuff or when we attended events outside, we'd enjoy our time together - like the dates we used to have before everything went awry. We managed to have some very good sex too, so I started to find more excuses to "pick up my stuff" couple times a week and she never turned me down.
I'd say our relationship improved drastically after I agreed to the separation. I didn't have the time or interest to date anyone else and to my knowledge neither did she.
Now, about 2 months ago, she suddenly turned all cold and angry again for no discernible reason. She called in sick for a few days and ignored all my calls, messages and shrugged me off when I checked on her.
2 weeks later, my brother finally learnt the truth from another colleague - my wife is pregnant, with twins.
I'm very hurt at the way I had to find out, but that's beside the point. The colleague later told me she explored her options for abortion but did not or has yet to go through with it because my wife reportedly told her she "knew it would break (me) for real" if she did.
Hearing that, I was reaaally hopeful that this pregnancy would save our marriage. I have been so miserable.
But when I approached my wife about her pregnancy, I discovered that she was (and still is) in a terrible rage at me. She keeps telling me not to get my hopes up, keeps flinging the abortion threat in my face, says she'd rather raise the children on her own because I'll never have time for them, insists she still wants to go through with the divorce, will take care of herself, won't need maintenance, and basically many illogical, contradictory and hurtful things.
She has even been trying to convince me that the babies aren't mine. But in one tired distracted comment while mad at me, she said they've driven her crazy "just like their father". Another day, she declared she hates me and hates my babies. Yet another day, she blamed me for picking a good date to intentionally knock her up - we spent the whole stretch of Christmas Eve to New Year's Day together, had unprotected sex throughout often at her initiation, and now her EDD is the date of our 1st miscarriage. Unless she managed to slip out in secret to bang the deliverymen, I really don't see how the babies aren't mine.
She also said she's gonna quit her job and move out for good so we never have to meet again. And she is really packing up her stuff at home into big boxes and has been researching renting dubious walk-ups in lousy neighborhoods far from me.
Meantime I'm relieved at least she's still seeing the OB and taking her iron, folic, screening tests and avoiding alcohol, caffeine etc. While mostly cold and snappy, she still lets me take her out for meals several times a week and never rejects food or massages from me. The other day I even spotted two twin pregnancy books on her car seat when I peeked in. I was incredibly heartened.
I have no doubt she's terrified and conflicted. But she's so stubborn and angry that I just can't get through to her. She's made clear counselling and therapy are out of the question, and I can't slip her any tranquilizers either since she's pregnant.
I'm worried sick about her for so many reasons:
She's pushing 40 and that already puts her at significantly higher risk for many pregnancy complications, carrying twins to boot. So far no major issues detected, the usual anemia, low BP, some spotting; cervix unremarkable. But her face gets a gaunt green cast from nausea or headaches most mornings even now, and though she's showing quite a bit, she has actually lost considerable weight. She was already borderline underweight. Can tell she gets dizzy or breathless easily but she still insists on climbing up and down needlessly packing her boxes and even wants to lug them down the stairs herself. Of course I put an end to that nonsense when I see it, but I'm really terrified she'll hurt herself trying to prove some reckless physical feat when I'm not around. Or pass out in the bath alone at home.
She goes on about me never having time for a family but bars me from her OB visits - which occurs at our workplace! I've had to install "spies" all around her to find out how she feels, yet even that is difficult - the guys are useless as she knows their loyalties to me and I can't be too pally with her women friends in case she develops another misunderstanding, which would be the worst time for that to happen again. So far only my brother and his gay partner have been my greatest help as she genuinely adores them. She forbids us from telling both sides of our parents about the pregnancy and keeps trying to suck in her belly to keep it a secret as if people are blind. She was never like this before.
I'd like her to take a long break from work or even quit entirely so she can get sufficient rest and hopefully regain her sanity, but I know she'll be insulted or suspicious of my motives and it will also be much harder for me to keep an eye on her if she's not constantly pottering around near us. She might also use that newfound free time to really run away forever.
I really really really want to be around for her and our babes, but I'm so scared of destabilizing her with anything I do or say.
I've turned this over in my head time and again but I truly truly don't believe that we have reached the end of our marriage. I feel like there's still so much evidence pointing to the fact that she still loves me.
Many people claim it's clear I'm a calming presence for her (the irony!). My bro says even now her eyes always sweep the room until she spots me. She still publicly defends me in arguments in my absence and is always empathetic when I have a trying day (as long as it's not caused by her). I don't know what I would do without her.
She seems to have it all together in public but it's a different story in private. These 2 months, in the rare few instances I've dared raise my voice back at her or when her rage has driven me to break down, she would become immediately contrite, retract her words, apologize profusely, and then inevitably become distressed to tears, at which point I would have to spend more time consoling her. Those are also the only times she allows me to guide her in techniques to calm her erratic breathing. But sometimes I think I'm having a panic attack myself.
It's all terribly exhausting for us both but even more so, it is simply gut wrenching for me watching her. The 2 miscarriages left me wracked with guilt; there are many things I wish I did, I truly don't want her to have to go through that trauma a 3rd time. I'm a medical professional and there's so much I know in theory but I am really at my wit's end when it comes to my delicate pregnant wife who's perpetually in an uncontrollable rage at me. Everything I've done is wrong. I'm so fucking scared. I'm so fearful I will again unwittingly hurt her irreparably. And there are still so many weeks more to go. I don't know if we can make it.
When I ask what she wants from me or what I can do to make things better, she says impossible things like carry the babes myself, leave her for good, or to father other children with other women. My god.
I have thought long and hard about it and have put this to her as gently as I could: I don't need to have kids. She doesn't need to have kids. If it comes down to that, I would save our marriage over saving the babies. Or if saving our marriage is impossible too, it would be OK as long as she is happy and healthy again. Mentioning this invariably leads her to more rage and more inconsolable tears. She is incensed that I'm "choosing between them" or trying to force her to choose, which I'm not! I'm just trying desperately to say there's no pressure, there's nothing I could ever want so badly that I can't do without, I swear it. I'm just so afraid she can never be herself again. Should I help her arrange for an abortion and make her go so that the choice is mine?
I've tried so hard to analyze and identify/eliminate any potential causes for her rage.
I never comment on her growing belly or boobs in case she flares up. She definitely likes belly rubs, back rubs, calf and head massages so she certainly doesn't hate my touch. She doesn't gag when we kiss. It's not about the sex either; in fact it seems to put her in a better mood for a very short while. We're not financially strained (unless she really intends to divorce me and refuse a cent while trying to raise the twins on her own) and both of us can arrange for prolonged time off work if we really need to. We have a part-time cleaner so any chores she ever does herself is because she wants to. Anything she can't tolerate, I've stopped eating as well. I've given her copious supplies of vitamins, essential oils and home remedies for her nausea and headaches. I've been spending so much more time with her now, work is really just an afterthought. I've tried ignoring her provocations but she would follow me and demand a response then accuse me of patronizing her. To protect her sense of independence, I even let her continue to drive despite my concerns about her terrible driving.
There are some things I can't compromise though - no way I'd let her have sashimi or lift the heavy luggage and boxes herself. Admittedly I'm a bit of a nag about drinking enough water, taking her supplements and BP monitoring. But can I really allow her to be so reckless and go her own way?
I suspect my presence alone might be a trigger for her rage. But apparently not having me around distresses her too. 3 times these 2 months, I was shocked to learn that when I missed minor meetings or events without first informing her (though I had no idea I was expected at all), she disappeared into the bathroom to cry. She insists it was nothing but once let slip that she thought I stayed away because I was angry at her, which is so irrational. Why would I be angry at her??? My bro and his partner concluded that my absence was the only consistent factor for her odd behavior.
I'm ashamed to be such a bumbling clueless husband. Truth is she's surrounded most of the day by people and family perfectly equipped to handle any physical problem that might occur. Yet I've never felt this stressed, helpless, blindsided and impotent my entire life. I am at a total loss. And it's been only two months since I found out. Last night she screamed at me to just stop bothering about her. So today she drove herself to work while I stayed home to despair over the keyboard wondering if it's tears or rage now because I actually heeded her advice. Maybe I should have feigned ignorance about the pregnancy from the start.
It was very hard for me to put this all down in words, I'm sorry it's so long and incoherent, but I've really reached my wit's end. I don't usually log into Reddit, so this is a measure of my desperation. If anyone out there studying this convoluted essay can help figure out any hints to the root of my problem or if anyone can offer a desperate man some sound advice - that works - on daily methods to handle my fiery pregnant wife or tips on how to dissipate her flying rages... please help me. I will be eternally grateful.

2023.03.22 10:33 Pragmatic_Shill /r/CollingwoodcFC 2023 Copeland - Round 1 results v Cats
It's back! We received 45 votes for the subreddit's Copeland for the Round 1 game. However, one lot of votes could not be counted - please all, if there is more than one player with a particular surname playing the match be sure to identify which one you are specifically referring to!
Also - thank you to opposition supporters who identified themselves in the voting and provided legitimate votes sans abuse. You are very welcome to continue getting involved going forward.
To recap how these are calculated:
Round 1 results
- Immediately post-match, people are asked to provide the names of the 5 best Collingwood players. The best player receives 5 votes, second best receives 4 votes, and so on.
- Typically on the following Wednesday evening, voting is closed and the results are tallied.
- The results are calculated as a total score out of 100 so there isn't discrepancy depending on how many voters took part on any given week. For example, this week with 44 eligible voters, the most votes a player could receive is 220 (44x5). If a particular player receives 65 votes, it's reflected as a percentage of 220 (e.g. 65 is 29.54% of 220 votes - rounded up it's 30% - therefore, the player gets 30 votes for the game).
- Jordan De Goey - 67
- Scott Pendlebury - 65
- Nick Daicos - 64
- Tom Mitchell - 25
- Josh Daicos - 20
- John Noble - 17
- Bobby Hill - 15
- Beau McCreery - 14
- Darcy Moore - 9
- Isaac QuaynoBrayden Maynard/Taylor Adams/Jack Crisp/Mason Cox - 1

2023.03.22 10:33 canhan7 To all women with self-doubt: it's never up to you.
This post is for all women who are struggling with their self-esteem due to their partner's porn addiction. I know that this affects many in this subreddit and it can get so dangerous that it goes as far as surgery and eating disorders. I will tell you one thing for sure: it's not you! No matter how "perfect" you look, it doesn't change this addiction and on which women he looks at on the internet.
Without meaning that somehow arrogant, because I also have self-doubt without end (and I think beauty is never about one body type and sooo individual for everyone) but my body is not really different from the porn stars on the Internet. I'm a tall woman with 90-60-90 measurements, have worked out regularly all my life, am limber, get a perfect bikini model summer tan and have been looked at and approached by men all my life. In previous relationship I never had the feeling that other women are only interesting at all.
And yet... I was walking around city with my PA boyfriend in hotpans and I still caught him looking at the asses of complete strangers while I was having a conversation with him. It didn't matter what this women looked like, I noticed it with ALL body types - the main thing was tight clothing. As soon as I was out of the house, he started to watch porn sites, porn games, Instagram , even chatted with people, even though we had sex every day(!) at that time - during which he also always had an orgasm and never struggled with erectile dysfunction. It almost felt like he was waiting for me to finally leave so he could watch porn WHILE he (referring to the body) had the "porn star" in real in his bed before...It got to the point where he fell asleep while pleasuring me. All of this completely broke my heart.
What I have to say to all you beautiful women in this thread: no matter if you feel that you have too little bust size compared to porn stars, too much weight, or you think you can't perform 'well enough' in bed. NONE of that is it. You could absolutely fit that image and still the addiction is so deep in his brain that you don't stand a chance.
A good tip that helped me through was to read neurobiological studies that show how the brain of a porn addict changes. Some examples if you are interested: - Neurobiology of Sex and Pornography Addictions: A Primer (https://doi.org/10.1177/26318318221116042
and - https://fightthenewdrug.org/cambridge-neuroscientist-valerie-voon-porn-drug-addict-brain/
There are also some youtube videos if you are not a fan of medical studies. This helped me understand that it is NOT me or you. No matter what you would look like, the porn addict's brain is so altered - what you can also see in the MRI when you compare the reaction to lightly dressed women with that of a non-addict. HE has to understand that himself and get off and only then can those external triggers subside.
At the end of the day YOU are perfect just the way you are. And he is the one with the problem. All those women will never give him fulfillment or make him happy for more than a few seconds at a clip. All those "perfect" women will never be enough for him either. When faced with all these doubts and lies, try to think of yourself. I almost lost the body I was happy with because I was vomiting daily from all the lies I found out... I had no appetite for days, not going to the gym because I was just lying in bed crying with the blinds drawn, I look paler and 10 years older from all the sleepless nights and pain. Whether you leave this relationship or keep fighting for it, don't make the same mistake I did and think about yourself too and do something for your self-esteem and mental health every day. Either way, it's the only way to heal.
You are beautiful the way you are and if you do not manage to escape this trap, do not hesitate to seek therapeutic help. If you have any questions or are looking for someone to cry to: feel free to write me. Much love <3

2023.03.22 10:31 PeteZasHaus Why has the S03 had a slow start? Explained [No spoilers]
So I'm sure anyone who has watched the show so far might be a little... underwhelmed. I won't say its bad or anything, and I won't reveal any details, but the start has been very slow, and the runtimes inconsistent. So what happened? Why is the show dragging a little at a stage where it should be shining brightest?
Sorry you have to hear it here, but that is where the evidence points. This story starts in the production of BoBF. The show is a relatively short one off spin off. It tells a complete story, and should have a relatively unified congruent idea and theme across all eight episodes. However it feels... off, disjointed, like all the parts don't quite fit together. If we look at the crew for BoBF we get a clearer picture of why.
Firstly, this spinoff for a Jon Favreau show has multiple writers, some of which traditionally work with Kennedy, and additionally some of whom have projects which have been cancelled or delayed. A few of these writers were solely responsible for specific episodes. As in... this eight episode one off had individual writers from different schools of thought for specific episodes like the show was Doctor Who.
That alone explains many things that don't make sense in the show. The mods gang and their shittily animated popart kitchenaid blender speeders. The canto-byte wannabe sanctuary. (And its later disintegration) The random throwing away of major plot elements (i.e. the hutt conflict and how it tied into the mayors assassination attempt). BoBF was a very visual representation of the faction war happening at lucasfilm.
And then as we press on towards the end of the clearly failing show and its struggle to tell a cohesive story, All of a sudden we have two VERY SIGNIFICANT episodes of The Mandalorian, seemingly with little to no BoBF significance whatsoever.
You see, Boba Fett is a cult favorite character in Star Wars fandom, and though Kathleen likely had little or no direct involvement in the show, her writers had contracts that were suddenly disrupted by the shelving of their respective projects. They ended up on BoBF, and ended up destroying it entirely. Disjointing the story in just a few episodes and leaving very little for the other writers to work with as the idea of post GE Hutts depth and Several classic bounty hunters were replaced with the pyke syndicate and the mod speeder bike gang.
With the show being produced and filmed during the schism it was probably Favreau and his crew who ended up expressing dissatisfaction with the shows production, but...
"ITS A TRAP!"
Because then the board room just needed a weak poison to be introduced. The idea that The Mandalorian and Grogu could save the show. It is a spin-off, after all. But as that show had just undergone MAJOR plot developments which had seperated the two characters. That meant whatever was left of BoBF writing had to scrapped and the big premiere of Mando 3 (already filmed and produced) had to be cut into BoBF so that both characters could be there in BoBF finale.
The end result. A disjointed, meandering BoBF, and a weak beginning to Mando 3 with mid season episodes for a premiere. The slow boil that is Jon Favreaus writing style was turned against him by a very work politics savvy exec who has been exiled by fans and the company she works for.
It's a theory, anyway...

2023.03.22 10:30 Writecheck_Essays How to Write a Critical Analysis
| || | submitted by Writecheck_Essays to Online_Class_Helper [link] [comments]
Step 1: Critical Reading
The initial step to critical analysis is to read carefully and thoroughly and identify the author’s thesis. The majority of your knowledge will be gained from reading several sources and comprehending various viewpoints on the same subject.
You must pay close attention to the small print and be aware of the author's rhetorical strategies, prejudices, and assumptions.
Whenever reading a source, always look out for:
- The author’s intended audience Good writers write in a specific way to appeal to a particular audience; ex. Playful language appeals to kids, statistics appeal to business people.
- The author’s means of persuasion (language and rhetoric.) Good writers won’t directly say that Burger King is unhealthy, they will present BK’s sick list of ingredients and let the reader make this assumption.
- The general structure of the writing and how it supports the author’s statements. A blog post about the importance of punctuation, like commas, may illustrate how many people, annoyingly, overuse commas.
Step 2: Critical Analysis: Writing
The first thing to remember is that your job is not to de-legitimize this author’s work
. Your post is to serve the reader by exploring the work with them
, opening up aspects that were ignored or neglected.
It is your duty to help the world understand the subject to the fullest extent.
The first thing to do is provide a summary of your source (event, article, work of art, etc.)
. This is done to demonstrate that you have fully understood what you’re talking about.
Your summaries should not contain your argument or show any bias towards the source you’re about to discuss. Things you should pay attention to when reading sources
- As a critical reader, it is your job to pinpoint the author’s motives and dissect the text for meaning. Understanding how the author tries to achieve their purposes and gain your trust is the whole point of critical reading.
2023.03.22 10:28 Mezza1111 Did she cheat? F24 and F26
Did she cheat?
I have a issue but I’m not sure if it would be considered as cheating or not.
Went out with my girl to a gay club not long ago. As a competition I decided to play a game with her to see how many people we’d pick up. ( Ofc there were rules and boundaries) she had agreed to do so.
After splitting up I realised she was chatting to someone and that conversation lasted about 30 minutes then they started dancing, the issue is her dancing was crazy. The way she grabbed and twerked on this girl beyond, I seen the excitement in her she than grabbed her face was with about to kiss her but stopped. After watching them go on for another 20 minutes I walked away because I couldn’t bare to watch more. When I came back I seen them in the corner and from my side it looked like they kissed. I had approached her and told her that I’m leaving as I didn’t want to cause a scene she said oh no no I’m coming too. I had walked away and she came to me and asked if I was okay. As Im a quiet person and don’t like arguing in-front of others I said yeah yeah all good but she had realised that there was something wrong and suggested we leave. When we jumped in the car I respectfully told her that she breached her limited and I got a little jealous as she doesn’t even dance with me this way. I questioned her to why she did not stop when she knew she had pushed her limits and her response was “ I don’t know “ I then calmly tried to explain how I felt and she didn’t take it right and wanted to go home. She then told me that she gave this girl her number, when I questioned to why she changed her story and said oh actually I changed the last few digits. I didn’t believe it but I did let it go. After bickering back and forth I finally shut the conversation off and convinced her to head to the casino to finish the rest of the right. I must admit I was a little quiet because I had a lot on my mind was didn’t want her to be upset at me.
After finishing from the casino she jumped in the car and said she wanted to catch an Uber as I have ruined her night. I said didn’t want her to catch an Uber as it was late night and she had drank. She than for super angry and said so many fucked up shit and left my car. I got out of mine and tired to convince her that what she is doing is wrong and all I did was tell her how I felt about the situation again after back and forth I convinced her to jump back in my car so I could drive her home.
I questioned her the next day and asked if this girl had messaged her which she kept saying oh no babe she did not. Later that night she was on FaceTime with me and I could see she was texting someone through her glasses but wasn’t very sure who. A few days go passed I had a weird feeling to check her phone. When I realised she had been texting this girl and was kinda flirting with her too. I then approached her and asked her if she had messaged her and she confidently said no babe she did not. When I grabbed her phone to give it to her she questioned to why I have her phone which I responded to why she lied to me. She acted dumb but when I told her I seen all the messages she went quiet and till this day she does not have a proper answer to why she has done this.
I am very confused my self as we are great together and have no issues, I always priorities her and we have an amazing sex life.
Now my big question is did she cheat?

2023.03.22 10:28 GummyBearGrylls India's relations with the 5 Eyes countries, specifically the UK
What do you think is causing India's tepid relations with the UK?
I'd rate India' relations with FVEY countries from highest/warmest to lowest/coldest
- USA: Very warm with many hiccups, lots of challenges ahead. The US has highly influential and wealthy diaspra, who are relatively new to the country.
- Australia: Warm with minor hiccups, few challenges ahead. Australia has mostly well off to wealthy diaspora, who are not yet politically influential who are relatively new to the country.
- Canada: Blow hot-blow cold with lots of hiccups, challenging relationship ahead. Canada has politically active diaspora across all levels of wealth, who have been present there for very long across waves of immigration.
- UK: Tepid to cold with lots of hiccups, very challenging relationship ahead. Has very wealthy and very politically active diaspora who have been present in the country for decades, across waves of immigration.
- NZ: Barely existent with few hiccups, not challenging once initiative is made. NZ has mostly well off diaspora, who are not yet politically influential since they are broadly new to the country.
Unlike our issues with NZ (nuclear stuff + NZ's tendency to act like they're Scandinavians in their moralistic preachiness), the India-UK relationship should really be better than it is now. It is astounding how tepid it is despite more than a decade of Tories in power - you'd expect conservatives to be more hawkish and open to business, and therefore align broadly with India on a lot of things.
What causes this relationship to be the way it is, outside of the political power that migrants from Mirpur and other communities opposed to India have? On paper, British-Indians are extremely powerful and wealthy, have very high educational attainments as well as wealth and are present across industries in the UK (media, politics, miltiary etc). Why is it then, that our relationship is in the toilet?

2023.03.22 10:26 daniellehunter5828 Top Healthcare App Development Trends That Will Dominate In 2023
The healthcare industry is growing as people become more health conscious. However, it is still insufficient to effectively serve billions of people. Chances are you've seen this during the COVID-19 devastation. When everything depends on human resources, things get more complicated.
However, as we have already discussed, the healthcare industry has undergone many changes in the past ten years. Globally, there is a significant transition to digital platforms in health systems. Today, we have applications for every aspect of healthcare, including scheduling doctor appointments, monitoring patient health issues, diagnosing and treating, and offering remote healthcare services. However, as technology develops, so do fresh shifts and transformations in healthcare applications. The same holds for the creation of healthcare apps.
In recent years, healthcare technology has advanced significantly, and experts predict that it will do so in the upcoming years. With the advanced usage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), healthcare application is becoming more important to improve patient outcomes and deliver better healthcare services.
This article aims to explain the latest trends in healthcare application development
With this article, you can learn more about the top healthcare app development trends that will dominate in 2023. But first, let’s take a look at the different types of healthcare applications we are already using in our present life.
Two Types of Applications in Healthcare
Patient-centered and doctor-facing solutions can be used to categorize any health-related solution. Each category has variants.
1) Patient Applications
These services cater to patients, increase their involvement in their care, and make it easier for them to communicate with their doctors.
Through a secure interface, the patient portal enables users to check their medical records, book appointments, complete pre-visit forms, and view invoices. Patients can also manage billing claims and other documents virtually.
- Health Tracker Mobile Application
This group of apps helps users keep track of various health-related tasks such as tracking symptoms, heartbeat irregularities, sleep tracking, and many more. Users of apps like Glucose Buddy can also use them to track diseases such as diabetes and more.
This app suite includes fitness, lifestyle, and nutrition solutions that make it easy for consumers to track their daily activity levels and motivate them to adopt healthier daily routines and more physical exercise.
- E-learning Mobile Applications
These types of apps increase public awareness about the latest advancements in the healthcare sector and other instructional materials. It also helps medical students understand, educational apps can also contain a glossary of words, pictures and diagrams, anatomical images, and other materials.
2) Doctor Applications
This type of healthcare application is useful to health professionals, clinics, hospital admin staff, and so on.
With the help of technology like video conferencing, phone calls, and chat; practitioners can connect with patients remotely through telehealth solutions, which are digital applications. They provide physicians with a practical and economical way to provide care by reducing the number of no-shows.
They support the management and centralized storage of patient data as an integrated EHEMR solution. It helps the hospital admin staff to collect, store and manage the History of visits, recommendations for laboratory testing, vital signs, and other medical information in a secure manner.
- Social Networking Mobile Applications
Simply stated social networking mobile application helps healthcare professionals to connect and collaborate with each other. Here, care teams can exchange knowledge, discuss related topics and establish connections with each other to enhance their knowledge and build a more advanced healthcare system for the future.
As a general audience or as a medical professional, you might be using one of these healthcare mobile applications. There are some of the technologies that healthcare app developers might have used to make your user experience more enjoyable and reliable that make you stay connected to the application for a longer period of time. Let’s discuss some of them here.
Top Healthcare App Development Trends In 2023
Let us discuss the top healthcare app development trends.
1) Integration of IoT (Internet of Things)
IoT is the technology that enables physical devices to connect to the Internet. It is often used to connect two different devices and transfer data efficiently. One such example is wearable fitness trackers, which enable users to keep track of their daily exercise routine, calories, heart rate, sleep patterns, SPo2, and more. The integration of the IoT in healthcare applications
helps users to track and record important health data while medical professionals can use these records to enhance their treatments and gain insightful information.
2) Blockchain Technology
Hackers can access anything online. As keeping patient data safe and secure is one of the top priorities of the healthcare industry, blockchain technology is helping the industry to keep records safe and secure in an efficient manner. Apart from associating it with Bitcoin, the advanced algorithm of blockchain technology is helping various industries to protect their data.
The healthcare industry receives billions of pieces of information every day, and blockchain could enable the industry to exchange and store data while preventing system intrusions. Healthcare app development company uses blockchain technology-based specially built algorithm for the systems that record important information to make it difficult to hack, modify (recorded and stored information), or cheat, the system.
3) Artificial Intelligence
The technology known as artificial intelligence is useful in many industries, especially the healthcare sector. For example,
- The most recent AI innovations offer more accurate choices compared to traditional systems.
- The use of artificial intelligence (AI) will also reduce the rate of human error in the system administration and can help medical professionals to enhance their medical examination.
- AI technology called robotic process automation (RPA) can help with the early diagnosis, patient data analytics, data, enhanced data accuracy streamlining health payments, and other processes related to healthcare.
Not only that, but even the biggest names in the technological world, including Microsoft, IBM, AWS, and many more are offering AI/ML-powered healthcare IT solutions
4) Augmented Reality: The Future of Healthcare
We talked about how blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the healthcare industry. Now is the perfect time to highlight Augmented Reality and examine how it impacts the healthcare industry.
The usage of AR in healthcare applications helps to enhance the skills and understanding of doctors as they diagnose the patient. Along with this, it helps the individual training session to make it more advanced and allows medical professionals to understand the information they need to improve their skills.
Some healthcare applications are already using AR to enhance their service offering. Some of them are:
- Apps that show where defibrillators or AEDs are located nearby for quick, early diagnosis; A fantastic example of one of these is the AED4EU app;
- Google Glasses can help mothers who struggle to breastfeed;
- Predict evaluation of symptoms with AR apps, especially in ophthalmology;
- Pharmaceutical drug application information allows medical students to view drug action in three dimensions.
5) Virtual Reality in Healthcare
Virtual reality is one such emerging technology in the healthcare sector (VR). VR has the power to completely change how doctors diagnose and treat patients.
In addition, it allows physicians to practice surgical procedures and treatments in a safe virtual environment. VR can be used to create immersive experiences that help medical students to better understand their lessons in the virtual environment created for their practical sessions. Additionally, it makes it possible for medical professionals to engage medical students in interactive anatomy and biology lessons.
6) Improved Cyber Security
A strong cyber mesh protects healthcare applications from all threats, though not forever, but undoubtedly for a long time.
You can hire app developers with a thorough understanding of the cyber security for your healthcare app development requirements to protect your system from any kind of malware attacks. Using the upgraded cyber mesh, you can enhance your authentication system, allowing only authorized devices to connect and access private medical information, and only within the network.
7) Enhanced Usage of Cloud
Any healthcare worker will tell you that storing patient data or paperwork is one of the most difficult responsibilities. However, with the introduction of cloud-based options, many of these activities will become more straightforward than ever. Patients' electronic health records (EHR) are accessible twenty-four hours a day.
The healthcare industry stores about 30% of all digital records worldwide
. And it is expected that contribution will increase to 36% by 2025, which is 6-11% faster than the manufacturing, financial and media, and entertainment sectors.
The use of cloud-based technologies not only benefits hospital management but also health insurance providers. They can securely store important information about each patient's healthcare premium and insurance number. So we can confidently declare that 83% of structured and unstructured data in the healthcare sector is being stored on cloud platforms for better management, availability, and accessibility as well as security assurances.
8) Women's Wellness Apps
According to a general report, women account for 50% of healthcare app users worldwide. So why not create a niche-specific app for them? As a result, it is estimated that the global market for femtech will reach $50 billion by 2025
For their health and fitness, modern women want modern solutions. The app can provide components that help them to track their menstrual cycles, pregnancy periods, and postpartum periods. Moreover, such healthcare application also offers customized food plans, exercise, meditation, cycle monitoring of the ovulation period, and many more. Therefore, reaching out to a top app development company with such a wellness app idea can have a positive social impact.
To take a look at the success ratio, mobile applications such as Clue, Flo, and Natural Cycles are popular women's wellness apps with 500K to 100M+ downloads each on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Important Factors to Consider for Healthcare App Development
Even though you are aware of all the technological trends there are some factors you should never ignore while creating a health app,
If your health application collects holds, manages, or transmits protected personal information to healthcare providers (such as name, SSN, and other data) it must comply with HIPAA regulations. As you might not be aware of such regulations, it is important for you to hire app developers with prior experience in the Healthcare industry to make sure your healthcare application meets all the necessary criteria.
2) Data Interoperability
Based on the Interoperability and Patient Access final rule, it is important to prioritize patient information and ensure that health information is readily available to all parties involved in care. So no matter what, your healthcare application should technically share medical data through a secure healthcare API
and connect seamlessly with the existing business environment. If you are confused about whether your healthcare application will be able to meet the specific guideline or not, make sure you reach out to an app development company with an extensive working portfolio. They will make sure your app data stays secure enough and meets all the guidelines.
These are some of the healthcare app development trends that are ruling in the year 2023. The next step will be to find the right person for healthcare application development that can integrate these trends well into your mobile app idea. The best solution for that is to hire android developers
from a healthcare app development company like Hyperlink InfoSystem that works with these cutting-edge technologies.

2023.03.22 10:25 Havimo Issues related to RAM from new build
Troubleshooting Help: What is your parts list? Consider formatting your parts list. PCPartPicker Part List
I've never had so many problems with a new build before, here is everything that happened : PART 1
- build assembly went fine, no issues to report.
- Problems started when trying to install windows, it would always crash during the file copying step. I tried different USB slots, new USB sticks, nothing would work. Finally, on a whim, I tried to remove the 2nd ram stick (call it stick B) and installation was smooth from then on.
- Installed games, programs, and so on without issues on only stick A, but decided to put stick B back in after a while. Started gaming, and WoW crashed almost immediately with a Memory Violation error.
- Eventually, it BSOD'd on me, and from then it wouldn't boot at all with stick B in, showing errors like "missing windows kernel". Even when putting stick B in the 1st ram slot, it still was bugging.
- Ran memtest86+ on stick A (passed), stick B(failed), stick A + B (failed). So I thought, stick B is dead, and I will RMA it on the following Monday.
- Spent the week-end gaming without any issues on only stick A, thought this was it.
- On Monday, with only stick A in, the computer wouldn't boot anymore. Same issues as before. On the rare cases it would boot, no applications would run, missing .dlls everywhere, explorer.exe would keep restarting.
- Ran a new memtest86+ on stick A, and this time it failed almost immediately, with millions of errors eventually.
- Sent both sticks of RAM to Corsair for an RMA.
- While waiting for the new RAM, I plugged my new NVMe to another computer, and everything ran fine for 2 weeks, no issues at all.
- The new RAM arrived, I plugged it in and the computer ran fine for a full day, no issues gaming at all.
- The next day, WoW crashed again with the same Memory Violation error.
- Ran a new memtest86+ on both sticks, and sure enough, it failed.
This is where we are right now, I am a bit lost as to what is happening. It almost feels like my computer is killing RAM sticks? I feel at this point it must be the MoBo / DIMM slots, but I don't know how to test for that.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,

2023.03.22 10:24 Glittering-Run-3245 How can I get out of the loop - depression is taking my life away
I have been struggling with anxiety and depression for a long time now, and eating disorders in the past that have not fully healed.
The trigger this time was that I saw a photo my broyfriend took of me and my legs appeared enormous to me. That single thought that arised from a photo that a loved one took on me, lead to not eating in three days, self-injuries and an endless loop of feeling like shit. I feel so narcissistic and chidlish, why would my looks be at all THIS important? Still now I cannot get over it. Just seeing my legs in a photo that was taken with love. My boyfriend almost threw me out of home cos I was behaving like a fucking idiotic child.
Yet it is so hard to get out of the loop, I literally have nothing that makes me feel happy and I consider myself to be under the normal for intelligence and I don't have any special skills so I don't see a point in feeling better with myself. I feel so miserable, so useless, I only bring dark stuff to my lovely boyfriend. It's like I know how to get out of the loop (my therapist gave me many tips) but still when I am in the middle I cannot get out, my mind is racing with destructive shit that I believe and I act according to all these thoughts.
The eating disorder has already been on for 13 years and I am already 30. I never imagined at this point of my life I would still be dealing my so many instrusive thoughts and still thinkking this is such a big of an issue. Its like really, who is going to notice I put on weight? and if they do, why would it be so importnat? there are far many things more importnat than looks, but I seem to not be able to get over it anyhow. I feel like I should really die if am not skinny.
This post might be destructured as I am a little anxious right now
TLDR: I am 30 and still behaving like a baby and thinking my body image issues are the center of the world. I am ruining my relationship because when I get in a depressive mood, I cannot get out of it during days and I become aggressive and a total bitch with everyone. I don't want to live like this, I want to enjoy my loved ones

2023.03.22 10:23 SteadfastEnd I have a victim mentality, but I'm not sure if I'm really a victim or not.
So, I've come to realize lately that I have a victim mentality.
The thing that makes it tricky is that there are indeed many times when I've been hurt by people (of course, haven't we all.) So when I get aggrieved or upset, I can't recognize whether I have legitimate feeling (like, maybe I AM in fact a victim?) or whether I'm trying to avoid responsibility.
So I'm not sure how to handle this. Either pinning all the blame on myself, or none of the blame on myself, doesn't seem to be ideal.

2023.03.22 10:22 Yeahm8nahm8 Trip prep
Hi guys. Very excited that I have been able to source 5 grams of Koh Samui mushrooms (I think this is the name of them?)
I haven’t tripped in at least 5 years, and the last 2 times I had done mushrooms I had a really tough, bad trip. I feel like enough time has passed, and I’m in a great headspace that I would like to have a session again with a few friends.
How much do you recommend I take? Keep in mind, I was pretty experienced a few years ago (I’ve really slowed down with drugs in general the past few years, although I still find them fun). Had taken many tabs, DMT quite a few times, 2CB, and had taken mushrooms at least 10 times before the bad trips. I couldn’t even tell you what brought the bad trips on, it was totally random and unexpected.
I think this last point has made me quite anxious to delve back into psychedelics, so any advice would be greatly appreciated to help prepare me mentally and physically for a nice trip :)

2023.03.22 10:22 ZestycloseAd5653 # anxiety is a bitch - a wall of text
Bad anxiety decided to come to visit. I decided to write about it. Open up anonymously. Masochistically typing with a cell phone, damn slow even though I could open a computer and type with all this much faster. Punishing myself again. Let's face it, this is nothing else than self-punishment. Even if I try to lie to myself about it, I know the truth.
What causes anxiety?
A million things, the most pressing thing is that the maintenance man will come to check the condition of the oven and the stove. It's broken, and has been for a long time. It should be changed.
So the maintenance man's visit should do the opposite of anxiety and stress, it possibly brings solutions to things that I myself have not been able to accomplish/do.
The refrigerator has also been broken and out of use for a while, so it would also need to be changed.
Fortunately, I usually eat canned fish or meat / sausages fried in a pan with frozen vegetables. Or ready-grilled stuff from the store's delicacy counter, so it hasn't been a problem. On the contrary, it has been one small solution, forcing me to go out, walk, and shop every day regardless of the weather. Otherwise, I would not have done so.
The AirFryer has also been useful. It makes smaller quantities of food, so I don't end up eating everything at once because it's a problem if I make large portions at once.
No moderation, no middle of the roads on things, black and white, all or nothing, that's me.
Everything slowly falling apart around me. Me being too stressed, anxious, and confused about where to start to sort this shit out. Mentally just paralyzed, or maybe just lazy, and unable to do anything about it, there's always that possibility.
A million things in my backlog and I can't get almost any of those done. Unless there is some very special urgency.
Besides all this, I should be social too, but it's also causing anxiety. People and I just don't mix well. I get along, but most people bore me. Drain me out of energy completely, often for a day or two.
I wish I was somewhere far away from civilization, just away from all this. I could just be in that moment, live that moment and not be mentally so paralyzed with anxiety.
Shitty thing is that I'm aware of all this. I don't know what to do, or can't do anything about it because of the crippling anxiety.
I would like to drink myself unconscious to get rid of the anxiety for a moment. Of course, it won't solve anything in the long run, but it would help temporarily. And maybe for a few days give some relief before the same bastard, anxiety, comes for a visit again.
It's 4:30 in the morning, I haven't got almost any sleep because of the anxiety and stress. I've also changed my alarm many times because I haven't been able to sleep. Staring at meaningless videos on YouTube to kill time for the inevitable.
I wish I could even get something done today, even just one stupid thing, after the maintenance man visits.
Why in the hell can something so ridiculous feel like the world is falling on you?
It's a shitty day today. And almost every day.
It sucks to think 24/7 about everything stupid and not get a moment of peace inside my head. I wish it would be possible to stop thinking about anything, even for a moment. But no, such luck, just pure chaos of all thoughts, a tropical storm in the mind about a million different things and I am just a bystander watching it all rage on.
It sucks to be so completely mentally paralyzed, like a prisoner, hostage, inside my mind.
It sucks to procrastinate.
It sucks on top of all that, I still understand how much better things are for me now than they could be.
So what is the problem?
Do I have ADD? ADHD? I suspect that is a possibility, have suspected so for years. Have I done anything to find out? Fuck no, more like avoiding it because it might give answers. Or maybe I'm just too mentally paralyzed to do anything.
I am sure I have at least moderate-level depression and have had it for a long time. But is it result or reason for this all?
When did I become so broken?
Maybe I always have been broken, or defective. As far as I remember, I always have been somehow different that almost all the people I know.
I'm getting hungry. Maybe green tea and bread with tuna for breakfast. That should do the trick, exorcize the hunger demons.
A wall of text, stupid, and nonsensical, but at least it's out now. I don't know if this is useful, but I wrote this to get this all out somehow.
I used to write more, but even that was lost at some point in life and time.
I used to do more things in life, everything was not this anxiety-ridden at some point. What the hell happened?
Million times think through these same thoughts but never answer that would satisfy or work.
I guess life just happened... Now I just wonder, was there any point in this wall of text?

2023.03.22 10:22 transdisappointment Am I autistic? Something else? Or just overthinking?
(Just to make it clear I'm not trying to be disrespectful, make misconceptions, I'm just looking for advice or opinion! Also english is not my first language so sorry if i make any mistakes.)
I've been trying to do research on quite a few mental illness, simply because I wanted to know more about them and I'm interested in this topic. One of my most researched mental illness is autism, mostly because I feel like i can relate to many symptoms, but I can't really talk to my parents about it because whenever i tried talking about this they just brushed it off saying i need to spend more time outside. Of course I don't know everything, but I don't really want to self diagnose in case I'm wrong and just overthinking it.
I don't have really severe sensory issues, but there are certain textures of fabrics that simply make my skin crawl and feel terrible to touch, (like when you accidentally touch wet food while doing the dishes) and food textures that makes me just almost throw up in my own mouth.
I struggle to make and maintain relationships with other people and i find it hard to show real emotional expressions, especially when I'm not home. I feel and look kinda monotone. Also sometimes i have troubles reading other peoples emotions- i still can somewhat identify the emotion but i have a hard time figuring out how i should react properly.
I don't like that many things, but if I'm interested in smth i basically obsess over it, but I do get these "depressive episodes" (I'm not 100% sue how to call it) that last for usually like 3 days, then I'm fine for like a week and then again (or I'm just overwhelmed since I'm having my finals soon)
If anyone has any advice, suggestion or just opinion if I might be on the spectrum ir not, I appreciate any kind of answer!

2023.03.22 10:22 InsecureForever5555 I want someone that has historically suffered from immense self hatred and has figured out a successful way to redeem themselves and be kinder to themselves and others.
I feel so alone.
To spare all the details (you've heard them all before from many like me), I have suffered from childhood trauma that has left me as a person I don't even recognize anymore.
Some of my worst and most harmful qualities:
- I hate myself so much sometimes that I repeatedly hit myself on my head.
- I'm so reactive and often take benign comments as criticism.
- I am demanding.
- I always seek validation.
- I constantly apologize for everything I do.
- If I make a mistake, no matter how small, it's the end of the world.
- I'm negative by default.
I don't want to be this person. In the fleeting moments I have felt a semblance of security, I know I can be a calm, helpful, and loving person. I feel things too much to the point I take all of the nice things in my life and destroy them. I think everyone hates me as much as I hate myself, not matter how many times people try to assure me they don't.
I don't trust anyone, and I don't trust myself.
I want a (no BS) way to change. Please don't recommend therapy. It really doesn't work for me. There's not much a psychologist or therapist has said to me that has been insightful (and I've tried so many). I know I am traumatised. I know the best way to save myself is to be kind to myself.
I want someone that has been troubled with a prevailing lack of self esteem (and I mean rock bottom) who has figured out a way to live a fulfilling life filled with curiosity and compassion (instead of cynicism and hatred).
TDLR: Can someone who has always hated themself through their life but has found a way to be kinder to themselves and everyone around them ?

2023.03.22 10:21 Vhagargle_my_ballsac There have been a lot of posts on this sub recently by people who simply hate House Targaryen
Recently this subreddit has had a variety of posts by people that straight up hate the Targaryens, and saying very critical things about them. Obviously people are allowed to hate fictional characters, but you do realise that the Greens are Targaryens right? They speak Valyrian, ride dragons, do incest, and all the typical Targaryen stuff. This isn't the subreddit for talking about how much you hate the Targaryens. In the rest of this post, I will try to defend the Targaryens from several of the criticisms that I have seen recently in this sub.
Incest is bad: yes obviously incest in the real world is bad, and same for non-Valyrians in Westeros. But firstly, the Targaryens need to do incest, and secondly they don't suffer the same negative affects that others do from incest. They need the incest to maintain their very literal "blood of the dragon", that allows them to control the dragons, the source of their power. There is absolutely no evidence that non-Valyrians can ride dragons, as we have no evidence of someone ever doing that, and plenty of examples of non-Valyrians being killed trying to tame a dragon.
The only reason people said that Nettle didn't have Valyrian ancestry was because she had dark skin/hair, but we have many examples of verified Targaryens that don't have silver hair, purple eyes and white skin, (Baelor Breakspear, Princess Rhaenys, Daeron the drunken, etc). She was born as a bastard in the docks on Driftmark, a situation very similar to Alyn and Adam of Hull, certified Velaryon bastards. Thus the speculation that she couldn't have Valyrian ancestry because of her colouring, can be dismissed as simple racism in Westerosi society.
There would be no reason for Old Valyria, the most advanced civilisation on the planet, to have institutionalised mass incest unless it was absolutely necessary to maintain their dragonriding abilities, which it was.
Furthermore, thanks to their magic blood, the Targaryens do not suffer any negative side effects from the incest. The first few generations of Targaryens that only married other Targaryens or Velaryons suffered no defects or deformities, and it is only after intermarriage with non-Valyrians that we get our first defective Targaryens, Jaehaerys and Jaehaera, the children of Aegon II and Haelaena. As successive generations of Targaryens intermarried with Westerosi more and more, the rate of defective/insane Targaryens only increased. Maegor the Cruel was not physically deformed, and was not mad either. All the things he did before becoming King, while perhaps unnecessarily violent, made sense and were not madness, no more than some like Tywin can be called mad. When becoming King he suffered a serious head injury and went into a coma, thus any "madness", during his reign would be a result of possible brain damage he suffered.
Targaryens having "magic blood" that makes them immune to things ordinary people may suffer from is proven by the fact that Targaryens don't get sick. This was an established fact on Dragonstone for centuries during Targaryen rule, and the first Targaryen to die of sickness, Princess Daenaerys, was a massive shock to everyone. This does not disprove Targaryen exceptionalism though, because Daenaerys had non-Valyrian blood from her Great Grandmother Alarra Massey, which is what would have allowed the illness to get her. Even so, illness is extremely rare in her generation of Targaryens, and many other Targaryens of her generation display practical immunity to disease. But as the Targaryens continue to intermarry with non-Valyrians, the rate of Targaryens dying of disease increases massively.
Furthermore, several Targaryens born from purely non-incestuous marriages, like Aerion Brightflame and Rhaegel Targaryen, go mad anyway, thus incest cannot be the cause of Targaryen madness.
So while it is unsavoury and vaguely pro-eugenics, it is undeniably true that the Targaryens do indeed have "blood of the dragon", that gives them abilities normal people do not have, and that they require incest to keep this blood pure and working properly.
Another criticism that has been leveled against the Targaryens is that they are colonisers, and Valyrian culture is terrible.
I agree that Old Valyria had many terrible aspects, but the Targaryens removed most of these when they moved to Dragonstone, most prominently abolishing slavery. Them keeping old Valyrian traditions and rites like we see in Daemon and Rhaenyras wedding are not inherently harmful and are a nice piece of worldbuilding. Besides, they are not required to follow the Faith of the Seven, as many in Westeros already follow other Gods.
Finally, calling them colonisers is dumb. This is ASOIAF, everyone is a coloniser. The First Men were colonisers, the Andals were colonisers, the RhoynaDornish were colonisers, the Ironmen are colonisers, the Ghiscari were colonisers, the Braavosi were colonisers, the Dothraki are colonisers, everyone is a coloniser. And the Targaryens are pretty benevolent colonisers, because they did not try to force their language, culture, or religion upon Westeros, but rather adapted to fit most Westerosi customs.
TL:DR the Targaryens aren't that bad, and some of the criticisms I have seen of them in this sub are wrong.

2023.03.22 10:20 AmateurCock ddm4v7s vs iwi zion 15 12,5 inch for "mini" recce build
I am considering "building" a recce type carbine.I have been reading a lot about the 12.5 inch barrel and its advantages.
I was almost 100% convinced on the 11.5, but supposedly there can be problems with using a suppressor.
On the other hand, the 12.5 mid length has a very short dwel time....
The accuracy of DD is known, you can reach 1 moa with good ammunition, how is it with IWI?
Of course due to the price difference I can add JP Silent Captured Spring to IWI, better trigger group, charging handle etc...
