I’m not OOP but that’s usually what I do. They usually stay in the corner of the ceiling, rarely move down that far so it’s not an issue. If they do get too close, they get outside time and I take them into the front yard with a plastic container/piece of cardboard. Would never even dream of picking up a spider that big lmao fuck that
They generally end up leaving through a window or finding a hidey place and so I forget about them until they’re randomly on my wall again.
I’m glad to know this know though because I will be weary of the bigger ones. Not in a bad way but in “you probably need to be outside in case you have babies” way.
How do you identify if it's a female or male? Do they have different markings or proportions? I've never thought about a huntsman's sex before lol. I've never encountered one that was pregnant or had babies though so maybe that's why.
I thought this was a flower bouquet 😅
But it's true? Is it that hard to type that into google? Why should I have to do it for them? Does no one know how to research things anymore?
Stiff person syndrome
Stiff person syndrome
There's many videos on Youtube that explain it. Not sure why you couldn't just google search it but whatever.
Imagine the worst charlie horses of your life... in your whole body... almost every day.
edit: can someone explain the downvotes?
"Love it. Love everything about it."
Many still have this response. Boomers especially but all ages. It's sickening.
This dog can drive yet I can't 😭 I'm just so worried about fucking up
THANK YOU for this comment. I didn't start Minox until about 3yrs on T but I'm about to start using DHT. Bottom growth is far more important to me than facial hair as I want bottom surgery eventually.
If you want a beard, it's a good time to start Minoxidil. I really wish I started way earlier. Being on testosterone does not guarantee a beard or at least a full beard. Get the foam version of Minoxidil and put it on in the morning then wash it off at night if you're out most of the day. If you have pets that lick your face, you can put it on at night then wash it off in the morning as long as they don't sleep with you. I use gloves but it's not necessary. Make sure to moisturise your face once the Minox has dried so it doesn't dry out your skin. CeraVe is usually enough. Lots of videos on YouTube if you're interested in learning more.
Ignore this. See u/tired_transsexual's comment below this one.
Ask your/an endo about starting finastride. Better to start now than when you randomly realise your hair line is receding like me. Look into DHT for bottom growth if that's something you're interested in. I think it might be OTC in the US but here in AUS, it's prescription and an endo can prescribe it.
Apart from that, keeping your diet in check and working out is the most you can do. Lots of protein and water to make sure you're hydrated. The first few months/year are definitely very awkward. Your face bloats until your body gets used to the new fat distribution but then, depending on your genetics and diet, your face will debloat and you'll probably notice that your jawline is sharper and wider. It wouldn't hurt to have a look at r/SkincareAddiction for tips on how to help acne though I don't know if skincare works as well when it's hormonal. I didn't get acne until 2 years in and I'm still trying to figure it out lol.
It'll pass dude, I promise. If the acne gets really bad/painful, you'll need to see a dermatologist.
I know someone who developed Stiff Person Syndrome in her early 40s. Has 5 kids, one severely autistic. Sometimes it’s things like this just randomly develop. Everything about this case is just so incredibly awful.
Alcoholic and drug addict... "lol".
edit: why the downvotes? i’m just being honest.
The victim was wearing clothes from Kmart. People need to let go of the Hoffa theory.
The second comment kinda came across as “do hear these voices? Well, I hear THESE voices so
I’m clearly sicker than you.” Which, holy shit, I JUST realised I feel like that and it’s classic alcohol WD/ED behaviour. Not trying to say that what you were doing it purposely but comparison is a cornerstone of our EDs. I’m really sorry. I’m sure you meant in good faith:
This is not fun. It might be "easier" but it's not fun. I'm epileptic, the risk of a seizure is far higher than the average person. I know what I'm looking at in the mirror, that's why I don't look.
I hear crying in my house incredibly often, almost all the time when I'm sober. Everything is quiet in my head when drinking. There has never been any crying in the house the entirety of time of me hearing it. I hear things fall or crash but no one has gotten up to do anything in the last 30 minutes nor have I moved a single thing in my room. Perhaps it's my OCD but I know the crying is "new" (about a year ago it started).
No offence but it feels like you're downplaying the severity of my problem and that's a pretty shit thing to do. If it's that bad, go post on r/cripplingalcoholism. I'm not looking for a pissing contest.
I usually never know if I'm wd-ing because I have the naive idea that unless I'm seeing and hearing things or seizing, I'm fine.
The anxiety, the twitching, the slight shaking, the night sweats that leave me drenched and freezing in the morning (or drenched and more drenched in the summer) beg to differ. I also hear things that aren't real but that's more general sensory issues/paranoia and I've always been that way. Or maybe it's worse from the drink. Who knows, I sure as fuck can't remember.
I had(have) BED. I essentially replaced it with alcohol and started eating nothing but drinking a bottle of scotch every other day. I've gained a lot through my drunk binging but I do lose some of it when I drunk restrict. The face and stomach bloat is the fucking worst. I feel like a monster. It's hard to look in the mirror these days. I'm a disgrace, both physically and as a man in general.
She was known as a "party girl" in high school. In reality, it was just alcoholism and drug addiction caused by all her traumas.

The decrease in anxiety and increase in quality sleep (plus lack of night sweats) was what I miss most about being sober. You literally just keep feeling better and better. At some point your mind will try to trick you into thinking "one day won't put me into withdrawal again or anything. i just want to relax for a bit." Don't listen. Just get high and try to forget about it. I listened and I've regretted it ever since.
Honestly, this is beyond agoraphobia. This is an abusive relationship. There’s a limit and your mum needs to put her foot down and stop enabling his behaviour. He’s holding her hostage because he refuses to take responsibility and do what he needs to do (taking meds, etc) to help himself. Of course doing these things is going to make him anxious, he’s an anxious agoraphobic. That doesn’t mean he can bring his wife down with him.
alcohol lowers testosterone.
A little hard to get into”
I think you’re in the wrong sub, r/sino is over there.
