Your wifi router is about .009 watts per square meter, maybe.
Largest 5G router at 120 Watts has a sign saying don't touch. Don't operate on it ehile turned on. Public exposure maybe .025 to .5, depending.
2 watts per square meter and the site is tracked by the technician, medical personnel, and other local support agencies. People are looking at ways to get under 2, and this is still safe.
Sunlight is 6.8 watts per square meter, average.
10, I require special permission to be in the area. Everything 2 watts has, but more aggressive. FCC, EPA aware, CDC and WHO maximum for non-ionizing radiation even for trained people.
13, couple of days off and medical checkup. Tell dumbass and their boss they should rethink their career and life choices. inform them to better listen for the cries of millions of sperm crying out in pain and then being silenced. Possible Darwin Award.

Trying to get a good mask seal on my fOOking CPAP machine last night. Total fail. Leaking so bad it was making those leaking sounds, keeping me awake. Will probably need to order a new elastic headgear. They really don't last long and I'm surprised they don't just give you a spare when you get replacement mask cups. Otherwise, you have to wait six months for a replacement. Yay me.

By the way, one in fifteen people have obstructive sleep apnea and don't know it. that's eighteen million people (USA) and approximately eighty percent are undiagnosed.

I order from Amazon here. Sometimes Walgreens or CVS here has them. Not too expensive and easier than filling out my insurance form.

Are they to the tier of night terrors yet
PTSD. I don't go into anything more specific than superficial except extremely close friends or psychologist. I think this is from frustration and anger at the current situation as I am not good at strong emotions. I will likely wait for my wife and spend the afternoon at a park and/or looking at art.

Used to have dents in one of my apartment walls next to my bed because of night terrors, actually made me afraid to share a bed with my now-ex, then-partner

Storytime. I very rarely come on here, but I've had enough with someone recently. I didn't want to post this as a thread because it's just a vent, and I don't know if this was okay to post or not because I could be exposing someone with this, so I'm gonna post it on here instead:

Have you guys ever met someone who you thought were friends with them and tried to support them with everything you could, but then turned into a total selfish double-faced asshole who treated you like a piece of trash when they got something/someone better to rely on than you and then left you?

I met an artist about a year ago and tried to befriend with him (He has an account on FA too). I noticed he was an introvert with some boundaries, so I didn't try to get that close with him because he was so hard to get close to af. However, I really liked his art a lot and wanted to support him, one time he drew for me (he drew for me couples of time) and I posted on a Discord server, someone actually got interested and wanted me to tell him that he's interested to commission him. So I did that, and since then I kept advertising his art to my friends, in which at first he did appreciate that because I genuinely wanted to help him when he needed it. Some did got interested and commissioned him, few also got to know about his art through me. He even encouraged me to get back on drawing again and that he would follow my work too, and I did. I even drew what I think is the biggest piece of artwork for him as a gift.

(It's important to note that I'm a very emotionally person who likes to rant about things all the time. I'd assume that he might've been annoyed of me because of that, which in progress, he unfollowed all of my posts including my art.)

However, things started to change when he started to get close with some other professional artists, or probably even before that. He started to set his boundaries higher, and I wasn't even allowed to be myself around him. I get that he wants some personal space, but the way he reacted to things someone said (including me) in his posts or the posts he shared from someone else (even though those things never even meant any harm against him personal, or just simply expressing their opinion on things that aren't even directly about him with using even just one curse word) was as if he took it personally and replied back with long paragraphs of him trying to make them look like they're all wrong and stupid. Or I should just say he was being very passive-aggressive towards others who has different opinion than him and doesn't act like the way he wants to. Even some little puns or jokes about his characters (which I thought weren't even too inappropiate), he couldn't even take it and had to scorn me everytime and then deleted everything I said. And it kept happening, and it kept getting worse when he finally got very close to those high-level artists and being completely obsessed with them to the point where I believe it must have made him feel very high above than other average artists like me, so it made him acted that way towards me.

Later I noticed too that since I came back at drawing again, whenever I posted my art, he never even cared to give some attention to it, not even in the drawing groups where he can still see it without having to go to my profile and see all my rants that he doesn't want to see. And then out of nowhere, he removed me from his friendlist entirely. That's when I feel completely betrayed and very mad, because if he's really genuine about me, why can't he accept me for who I am? Instead, he only cared about his art, how to improve his art, and positivity from others that he keeps him motivated all the time. And most importantly, he completely ignored everything that I did for him up until that point. He can't even respect me for the things I did for him and for who I am, but he wants me to respect his goddamn sensitive egoism and his space. And the worst thing is, he keeps on talking to everyone else as if he's a smartass adult, keeping his lying facade of being a "genuine person who cares about everybody else" while at the same time he did this to me and the other few, how ironic.

It's not like I'm asking to get anything back from him, but if only he didn't act like that towards me, i wouldn't feel this way at all. All I can see on him is a double-faced passive-aggressive and toxic-positive person who sucessfully made me feel so damn low and taken for granted while dancing happily around his "friends" who he probably sees as just a tool to improve his art, the biggest liar in my entire life.

Bad case of FOMO and a general feeling of loneliness.

I love to watch the documentaries that Ash Coyote uploads to YouTube, they feel so wholesome, and always remind me of why I'm happy to be in and feel like I fit into the community in my own way like anyone else (Disgusting "monsters" not included). They do seem to give me an emotional boost in the beginning, but the the longer I watch [regardless of if I take small breaks inbetween], I always feel like I'm missing out on where I really want to be, I've never been to a con before and while I expect some form of hectic-ness they seem overall fun because at the end of the day, you are surrounded primarily by people with a main mutual interest, being a furry.

Never had a fursuit, want to learn to sew and eventually have a hand at doing my own craftsmanship if I learn to find the patience. Though, my occasionally motivated sketch hours seem to hold me over on that for now.

I don't really know many furs irl, the few I do, I rarely get to see or talk to, I don't have a friend group to be apart of, my entire friend group consists of only 1 furry and the rest nons. Just feels of out place because I can't talk about it much and hope they understand because even though they know I am one, they aren't.

I'm just kind of having a crisis that pops up a little too often ig..

I'm sorry to hear of that Infinity. It's sad, but it seems quite a few fandom artists seem to be like that. Bunch of porn artists essentially puffing themselves up for making porn for furries, just proves people will get an ego over the most ridiculous things. Not that I look down on people for making bank of porn, but christ almighty is that a silly thing to get a big head over. There's a reason I try to keep my interactions with more established artists as a strictly business affairs if I can help it. There's always a risk the person behind the profile is as you described. Granted, there are plenty nice established artists too. I can recognize that, but well, the old adage is true, that power tends to get to people's heads.

Even a microscopic amount of power at that. I've been stabbed in the back a few times before, so, I know how it feels, it's why I am a little more guarded than the average person/fur. The best I can tell you Infinity, is that you need to imagine yourself in the long term. Realize this event, as bad as it is. Is ultimately a small part of your entire life. In the grand scheme of things, this is literally going to be a small part of your life. Telling myself that didn't take the pain away from a friend turning away from me or god forbid the breakups, but it dulled it a little, and helped me move past it a little faster. There's nothing wrong with what you did Infinity, alot of us furries are sensitive souls. Last thing you should do is blame yourself for running into an asswipe.

Hopefully some of that might help you a little, Infinity.

I don't have a fursuit, either, or even a partial. Most people don't, from what I've gathered.

The only con I've been to was Aquatifur in 2015 or 2016. It was a fun con, but more about the swimming for me when I lived in Wisconsin. Now I live in New Mexico and not a lot of furries around, but that could be because not a whole lot of people here.

Hate saying it, but the fandom has only recently started getting good press. Most people hold a negative impression and they have never interacted with the community, just other people who are negative towards it. So, not a lot of people out and out furry in public.

I wouldn't worry too much. The forums and a few other sites are about as good as I can do, either.

I know physio is good for me but fuuuck my right shoulder blade has decided it doesn't like physio and will knot up practically the moment I step into my physio's office. And then after physio we go for groceries and now my back hates me blargh.

Did my post about that atrocious experiment done on puppies get deleted? it didn't contain any graphic photo or anything

I thought furries would be interested in awareness of such monstrosities, guess I was wrong
No, it was likely that it is hyper-partisan and it's fact checking is by QAnon. Not really, but that's their level of factual reliability.

They are purely a misinformation news site with the sole purpose of spreading misinformation and alarmist propaganda. They use just enough truth or hooks to seem legit, but nope, all hoaxes.

Honestly....

My other damed phone doesn't opens up discord anymore for any fucking reason ....
And when I tried to open it and check inside the phone the Modafuking buttons fell down from their places and almost lost one of them

I'm feeling anger but calming down
And the damned neighbors with their awful music AAAAGHK~

My mood is best described with this video, as sugar sprinkles is also a ball of happiness but in a bad day as me.

I keep wondering how I'm falling behind today, because I am moving around so fast I barely have time to use the restroom. Punched out for lunch 15 min late, just got completely lost in the assignments that kept popping up.
