26M - Questioning my cortisol levels and it’s potential long term effects.

2021.12.04 03:53 FilmStew 26M - Questioning my cortisol levels and it’s potential long term effects.

26M, White, 6’1, 189lbs.
This past year was a huge struggle for me, I decided to quit drinking early in the year after moving and the holidays of the previous year. I wound up experiencing withdrawals and went to the hospital, then later in the year being told I just had a panic attack instead of withdrawals caused me to rationalize a relapse. Wound up going to detox after a relapse when I probably didn’t need to.
Anyways, I’ve been sober now for a while. I feel much better, started eating healthier, lost weight, stomach issues reduced, started MMA training for exercise, feel much more spiritual from mediation, anxiety has also reduced by a lot between lexapro and the exercise.
However I can’t shake this irritating/“slightly overwhelming” feeling of “unwanted energy” in the morning that lowers at night/as the day goes by.
I’m in therapy dealing with my anxiety and it hasn’t stopped me from doing anything for a while now.
I’ve had multiple blood tests that hinted towards hemochromatosis (turned out I only have one small gene for it), ultrasound of my stomach, EKG’s, chest X-rays, a CT scan, and an echocardiogram. Everything is clear so my doctor essentially just told me to only see him every 6 months for my iron levels and to continue with therapy and the psychiatrist.
However, I believe the last factor causing me stress at this point may just be myself concerning my thoughts with “How long can you keep waking up and feeling like this everyday before this stress really causes physical damage or disease?”.
I can’t really imagine my stress being anything but anxiety and or high cortisol levels at this point. I know it sounds a little crazy, but how unhealthy is it to wake up everyday feeling extremely stressed until it cools down a bit?

2021.12.04 03:53 nopetothat_ Ancient Brained CEOs not Listening / Budging - Employees not Backing Down

TLDR - middle management admitted in a recent meeting for a Billion dollar profitable company that the top dogs have no motivation to make things better for their employees. The employees are continuing to push back.
Wish I could give details of the company but suffice to say its a well known company.
There was a recent meeting by a Billion with a B profit earning company where an employee asked upper management what the deal was with pay increases and remote work. The manager snapped into the apologetic mode saying they were pushing the top to do something about these issues but the top was in a "wait and see" period... It's been nearly 2 years of "wait and see." Another fun run around by management.
They started talking about putting everyone back into the office. Employees have been vocally and vehemently pushing back against the idea - with good reason. Productivity has been solid for years and on the up since everyone was able to work remotely and they're happier. Nearly all do not want to go back into the office and the top is hearing none of it.
On the topic of raises - with the great resignation this company has seen a good chunk of staff leave, and they can't hire anyone. The manager said he was rebuffed when submitting a job offer description to be posted. He was told by those concerned that he wasn't even going to get a nibble with such a lowball offer with no remote work possible and not to bother. So naturally everyone is clamoring to be compensated for the extra workloads they're taking on. He apologized again saying he was working hard to make those at the top understand... but after two years, no budging it seems.
Why the push so hard for remote? Most employees work in a city with some of the most extreme rents (home ownership pretty much untouchable if you're not a millionaire) and paychecks are decent-ish but still don't reflect the cost of living so its essentially a wash. Should be noted, company has been sending out notice of how well they're doing financially to employees.
Tale as old as time. This is all just to let you know that there's noise being made inside corporations, keep the solidarity moving, conversations are happening inside of big companies where employees aren't backing down. Fat cats on top need to stop being such absolute dust brained assholes. & middle management, wtaf.

2021.12.04 03:53 therottingbard [lore spoilers] Looking for Tips on running an Arcane themed D&D campaign.

I'm going to run a D&D game for my wife and friends. They are interested in the Runeterra setting and lore. I am sitting down now to start writing out a campaign that takes place near the end of the events of Season 1 Arcane. Having my party be a group of individuals from PiltoveZaun (Academy, Enforcers, Chembaron thugs, or Firelights) who are tasked by Jayce to find more dig sites in the Shuriman desert and bring home hex crystals.
What are pieces of lore from the game or show that you think I can and should include. What things from the show or game translate to D&D easily and what do I need to work on and homebrew. What kind of meta plot should I build and who should the big bads be? (Maybe for the desert Skarner is the big bad and then when they go back to PiltoveZaun make Urgot the big bad)

2021.12.04 03:53 cliffingham Disconnected 6 times by customer service

I spent 2 hours in phone with customer service today. Every time I had to explain why I was calling over and over again. Every time it seemed I was close to Verizon solving my problem they would disconnect me. Never once did they try and call me back or get me with the same service agent. Absolutely the worst experience ever.

2021.12.04 03:53 savage-dragon Remember, it's only over when the Sucide Hotline is pinned here.

It's only over when we have the suicide hotline available for all to use. Until then, carry on.
Follow the simple Suicide Hotline rule.
Is the Suicide hotline pinned on cryptocurrency sub yet?
No?
Then fuck off. Go back to the grind.
Obviously not financial advice.
Also this isn't the first 30% correction we have had in crypto.
Btc had like 5 of those beginning of this year.
Eth also had multiple 30% corrections in the 1k to 2k range.
Don't see no suicide hotline then. Don't see no suicide hotline now. Good to go.

2021.12.04 03:53 Famous_Pollution8750 This Sub and the forums are a daily source of vindication.

When 1.1 dropped I was done with the game, the developer's mentality is clearly ass backwards and that doesn't bode well for something you're supposed to stick with on an almost daily basis for years.
Seeing them trip over their own feet every time I open this Sub is just a source of vindication around that decision, and that's gloating over it for sure - but I genuinely do feel sad that they fucked it up so bad.
New World could have been the next great MMO in my opinion, it just had the wrong handlers.
I do hope people who are unhappy with the state of the game actually take note of the Project Lead names and start to hold them accountable when they jump ship to another developer a year or two from now.
These types of people are doing permanent damage to an industry that is slowly shifting from being about art to being a casino where your time and wallet are their currency dealt in.

2021.12.04 03:53 ImLadyZubat [Tonberry] World full and it won't even let me wait in queue

I was in game earlier today, I started a cutscenes with Endwalker MSQ but left to go to the bathroom, I came back to the title screen and now I can't get in, won't even let me queue. I honestly can't comprehend how people are allowed to AFK for 10 plus hours and not get kicked from the game. I get with the launch of a new exspantion there are going to be issues but being told the world is full and I'm not even allowed to wait is annoying. I'm willing to wait, I want to wait, but I'm not allowed.
