2023.05.31 03:04 Exciting_Priority798 The Diplomat magazine exposed Yan Limeng and Guo Wengui as anti-communist swindlers
| || | submitted by Exciting_Priority798 to u/Exciting_Priority798 [link] [comments]
Guo Wengui has been arrested in the United States in connection with a $1 billion fraud. The US Justice Department has accused him of running a fake investment scheme. Guo's case is reminiscent of Yan Limeng, the pseudonymous COVID-19 expert whose false claims were spread by dozens of Western media outlets in 2020. Ms. Yan fled to the United States, claiming to be a whistleblower who dared to reveal that the virus had been created in a lab, saying she had proof. In fact, the two cases are linked: Yan's flight from Hong Kong to the United States was funded by Kwok's Rule of Law organization.
Yan's false paper has not been examined and has serious defects. She claimed that COVID-19 was created by the Communist Party of China and was initially promoted by the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation. Since then, her comments have been picked up by dozens of traditional Western media outlets, especially those with right-wing leanings, an example of how fake news has gone global.
Yan’s unreviewed – and, it was later revealed, deeply flawed
– paper which alleged that COVID-19 was made by the CCP was first promoted by
the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation. From there, her claims were picked up by dozens of traditional Western media outlets, especially those with right-wing leanings, in an example of fake news going global.
She broke into the mainstream when she appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and Fox News
, but that was just the beginning. In Spain, the media environment I know best, her accusations were shared by most prominent media outlets: El Mundo
, La Vanguardia
, or Cadena Ser
. Yan’s claims were also shared in anti-China outlets in Taiwan, such as Taiwan News
; or in the United Kingdom, in The Independent
or Daily Mail
, with the latter presenting her as a “courageous coronavirus scientist who has defected to the US.” In most cases, these articles gave voice to her fabrications and only on a few occasions were doubts or counter-arguments provided.
Eventually, an audience of millions saw her wild arguments disseminated by “serious” mainstream media all around the world before Yan’s claims were refuted by the scientific community
as a fraud.
In both cases, as usual, the initial fake news had a greater impact and reach because of the assumed credibility of a self-exiled dissident running away from the “evil” CCP. Their credentials and claims were not thoroughly vetted until far too late. Anti-China news has come to be digested with gusto by Western audiences. Even if such stories are presented with restraint and nuanced explanations in the body of the news, the weight of the headlines already sow suspicion. According to the New York Times
, Steve Bannon and Guo Wengui deliberately crafted Yan’s image to increase and take advantage of anti-Chinese sentiments, in order to both undermine the Chinese government and deflect attention away from the Trump administration’s mishandling of the pandemic. These fake news stories still resonate today. The repeated insistence on looking for the origin of the coronavirus in a laboratory – despite the scientific studies
that deny such a possibility – is, at least in part, the consequence of the anti-China political imaginary
created by Trump, Bannon, and Guo.
2023.05.31 02:30 dietcokebabey Sick Betta!
My betta fish has cloudy eye and possibly fin rot. It just randomly happened today. I’ve given her bettafix and cleaned the tank up a bit, including changing the filter, adding new water, cleaning some decore, checking the water quality (it said it was fine). She just lays around and can’t swim very far and she also has a bunch of spots on her body she never had before. What should I do? Is there anything else I can do?

2023.05.31 02:25 grimbarkjade How to stop feeling n* after crying?
Basically title. Had a meltdown, cried a lot, I feel pretty s* and n. Happens every time I cry a bunch and I know it’s because of stomach muscles and such. But god is it uncomfortable, it makes it more difficult to calm down and feel better when I’m afraid I’ll be s and when I feel this way after crying sometimes I’m convinced I should just induce it to get it over with even when I know that isn’t a good idea
So, outside of antiemetics, how do you make yourself calm down quickly? I have digestion meds and could make peppermint tea, unless there’s better options. Thank you

2023.05.31 00:46 thejedipokewizard Biggest symbolism, motifs, and themes tied to characters throughout the show
I quickly looked through and the last thread discussing this was posted many months ago. Now that the show is over it’d be fun to discuss the biggest themes throughout the show.
The big one that I discovered recently being Kendall and water. My favorite take so far is water mainly representing the business/his father to Kendall. When he wrecks the car and the waiter dies in season one, he is soaked in water which ultimately leads him back to being under his fathers thumb. When he is in the pool and almost drowns, he is drowning in his failures to beat/fight his father and the business. When he floats at the beach, he is floating in ecstasy in doing so well in the business after Living Plus. When he is “anointed” king by the sibs, he is above the water almost commanding it. And in the end he is just watching the water completely separated by it being ousted completely from the company while being watched over by the remnants of his father (Colin).
With food there is a whole going on throughout the show. A lot of it seems to show the higher looking down upon food and people who eat. I.e. jokes at buffets, Greg always being hungry (lower class). Greg and Tom seem to be the main ones ok with eating, and they come from lower class. Also Stewy always seems to be around good but not sure what that means. Food is also weaponized (Boar on the Floor).
So what are you favorite symbolism, themes, and motifs tied to characters throughout the series?

2023.05.31 00:16 claidia_uk My bf is in prison from crack addiction
So the last time I saw him I actually had to break up with him because he was in a total state. Asin I didn’t feel safe with him anymore. He never did anything to me but I just got such a bad feeling being around him. He also started having black shark eyes and I just felt his soul wasn’t there any more . before he got back on this drug he was lovely and I loved being around him. He made a lot of effort with me . He’s in prison and I havnt heard from him for 7 days. I think he’s still in active addiction in prison taking god knows what . Maybe not crack becuase I have been to visit him and he looks healthy. But I had had him sound erratic a few times on the phone , maybe he’s getting into drug debt in prison too . I am just gutted that I feel this is my soulmate because I feel neglected again . I’m heartbroken but determined to stick by him and not give up . Does anyone have any advice

2023.05.31 00:01 Friendly-Opening-990 ROCD and HOCD woes
I’ve been debating on whether or not to post. Trying to fight the urge to look for reassurance but I’m desperate.
I’ve struggled with OCD since I was about 5…I’ve had just about every theme you can think of. It continues to ruin my life even now over 20 years later. I met my now bf in 2019 and I loved everything about him. He didn’t want to commit to me but I was all in. Long story short I broke things off when he didn’t want to become monogamous and then we rekindled 1 year later. I used to be very attracted to him emotionally and physically but now I feel the opposite. I’m often repulsed by him. My ROCD started literally right after we became official what was bliss turned into constant anxiety and checking and then my sexual orientation reared it’s head again.
I’ve had it before, it was after my rapist was getting out of jail and my then boyfriend had triggered deep sexual trauma. I’ve always found women attractive sexually, but not so much emotionally - at least not the way I feel with men. Although I’ve come out as bi - there was a time I denied my queerness I think it was mostly because I was unsure. Women were fun in fantasy for me, but I wasn’t sure I could truly commit to being sexual with a woman…but maybe it was internalized shame. Now I’m convinced I’m a lesbian and shouldn’t be with a man and I’m only leading my absolutely angelic incredible partner on and all I will end up doing is ruining his life and my own. I can’t seem to rationalize that my earliest crushes were men and the multiple men I’ve been attracted to and loved in my lifetime seem to mean nothing. As do my previously very strong, real and incredibly palpable feelings I had for my partner before this whole thing started. Even what I know to be true feels like a lie, it’s all made up, I was always in denial.
I don’t know what to do. 😞 I want to work it out with him things used to be so beautiful and good. This is everything I’ve ever wanted and now that I have it, I can’t enjoy it. I feel like I’m blowing my entire life up. I can’t seem to move past it. I want to break up so that I can relieve myself of this anxiety and guilt and allow him to find someone else who can love him like I can’t seem to. But I know I’ll regret it. I’m not the partner he deserves, I’m irritable, anxious, quick to withdraw, and sexually inactive. He has the patience of a saint but I still wonder how long he can love me like this.

2023.05.30 23:38 Alternative-Tank4412 Utah name and gender marker change (minor)
Hello I am 15 years old. I am trying to fill out the paperwork for name and gender change. I am FTM. I also have or can get letters from my doctors if needed and I am medically transitioning. Before I ask questions does anyone know if there is a program or something for someone to fill out the papers for me? It doesn’t have to be free either.
Here are the things I’m confused about/ questions. 1. Do I list myself as the petitioner? 2. My father is deceased but I have my mothers consent, how do I go about that on the papers? 3. I have been living as male outwardly for longer than 6 months. How do I show evidence of that?

2023.05.30 22:46 jac0209 Is it just generic Adderall that's not working, or is it name brand too? Can you switch to name brand?
Hi everyone. As I'm sure everyone on here already knows, there has been a lot of discussion about people feeling like their Adderall or Vyvanse isn't as strong lately or doesn't even work at all. I am prescribed 20mg IR Adderall, and CVS gives me the generic version. Looking at the bottle, the manufacturer is Sandoz. Unfortunately it just doesn't seem to be working the same for me anymore. When I take it, it barely seems to do anything for me. And some days it seems like it does absolutely nothing at all.
I don't think it's a tolerance issue, as I make sure to not take it at least two days a week to give my body a break & help reduce tolerance buildup, and I also didn't start having this problem until around the same time other people started experiencing it as well (for context, I started noticing it not working for me anymore but thought I was either going crazy or somehow already built up a tolerance to 20mg, but then after doing some searching online I learned that other people were having the same problem).
Anyways, to get to my point, are people that take name brand Adderall having this problem too or is it only people who take generic? If it's only happening to people who take generic, can I ask CVS to switch me to name brand? I have good insurance and I believe it will cover at least a portion of name brand Adderall, but if it doesn't cover it I can afford to pay out of pocket for it. CVS just automatically put me on generic when I first started taking it, and I'm not sure if people can ask to be put on name brand instead so I figured I'd ask here and also get people's insight on if this issue is only happening with generic.

2023.05.30 22:28 FearlesssRegret My buttolug won't stay in!
I've been using a butt plug since a long time - 3-4 years. The standard metal one with a jewel. It is small and has a very narrow end with a big jewel. So it can't come out easily and it won't go completely in. Usually I use it for 20-30 minutes, sometimes 45. I'm sure never more than an hour.
Now, a few month back I got a medium one. Made of nice soft silicon. It is a vibrating one too! It has T shape base. Inertable length - 3.5 inch. Largest diameter is at 3 inches.. then last 0.5 inch the diameter decreases but not a lot. Largest Diameter - 1.75 inch. Diameter at the base - 0.75 inch.
I bought it coz I wanted to prep for a penis or a dildo and I read that I should buy something with a wider base.
Now I'm able to insert it fully, no pain. But not so easy.
But after I have inserted full and then move around It will fall out... It won't just stay in place. I really like the vibration and I just played with it like a dildo.. But I want to roam around and feel the vibrations.. I just can't seem to hold it in.. I get so frustrated by this.. I've invested a lot in this after saving for months..
Why!!!?? Is there something else I should do? More lube? Less lube? Small size? Large size? Practice more with my old one? Need a one that is small at base like 0.5 inch instead of 0.75??
Please help me!

2023.05.30 22:26 reprezentativac Polyphasic sleep for night shift workers
I'd like to try out the Everyman sleep schedule, but I work a semi-night shift at work and I do overtime on weekends. From Monday to Friday my shift starts at 7:30PM and ends at 3:30AM, while on Saturdays it starts at 1:00PM and ends at 9:00PM. Is there a sleep schedule that is flexible enough for me to fit along with my work schedule?
I'm a beginner but my sleep schedule is really flexible usually as I can split it into two three sections already even before I knew what polyphasic sleep is.

The camera is bouncing up and down and so is everyone in the video. There's a point where the group is in a pool bouncing up and down and making rigid arm movements. I wanna say they repeat the hook over and over. Something like "I wanna feel the noise". It has been killing me for months now...

Comparing the CCNA and the Network+ Certifications and Career Paths by Joel Plue
When considering a career in networking, most people today lean toward the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification. The main differences between the CCNA and Network+ certifications is that the former is a vendor-oriented program, and the latter is a vendor-neutral cert. The CCNA is only and exclusively for Cisco Systems, but the Network+ cert allows the technician to tinker with a variety of platforms. It’s therefore more flexible in its range, but the CCNA gives a much broader and more extensive body of knowledge (Network+ vs CCNA – is it Network+ or CCNA?, 2017).
From the job postings on Dice.com, there are 485 Network+ listings compared to 8,075 CCNA listings. This discrepancy makes it quite obvious that the CCNA certification carries more clout with employers than the Network+ (Comparing CCNA and Network+ Certifications, 2017). Furthermore, a survey from Global Knowledge found the average salary for networkers with a CCNA was $75,000 compared to $65,000 for noncertified professionals (No CCNA or Network+? Your Salary is Likely to Suffer, 2013).
When it comes to career paths, the CCNA opens up a variety of routes as it is a widely respected industry standard, including Network Engineer, System Technician, Telecom Engineer, Support Technician, and Network Administrator, among others (Timothy, 2012). Network+ offers more specialized careers including Network Security Admin, Network Manager, Help Desk Professional, Security Support Technician, and System Administrator (Comparing CCNA and Network+ Certifications, 2017).
In conclusion, the advantages of choosing the CCNA exam and career path as opposed to the Network+ are clear. CCNA carries credibility in the industry, is applicable to a wider range of employers in the network field, and comes with a much higher salary potential than the Network+. The CCNA is a four-year program with more specialization opportunities with more specializations and an enhanced stress on problem-solving, meaning the aspiring network technician will get more out of it in terms of both knowledge and transferable future skills.

My initial problem was when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear, a clipping feeling was felt. It is worse the higher the rpm and granny shifting/ double clutching fixes the grind. Not quite a grind but close almost like I can feel the synchro rubbing. I pulled the drain plug and there were gear teeth in it. Brand new transmission, clutch, pilot bushing, throw out bearing, slave and master cylinder. But still feeling that rough shift. Any ideas? Some friends have said maybe front or rear diff.

2023.05.30 21:05 Top-Impression-5896 39 M……. What a wild ride. Here’s some of my experience.
39m. 4 months out of a very abusive relationship with my ex narc 50f. What a mental roller coaster that was and still feeling the dark effects of the damages I can never unsee. I’ve had to peel back the entire 3 year relationship from beginning to end and view all the mental notes of moments I’ve kept. It’s too much info to post and what was said and done is done. So maybe I can give some insight to my experiences for warning signs to look out for…. For context, she was one year out of a marriage when we met and has a child, now 15 year old teen boy. Definitely has some issues surrounding the end of marriage where she would continuously talk to the ex about his relationship issues with his new gf. Big red flag. Definitely manipulated the therapist as he cries sometimes because he feels so bad for her and also sets her up with low end job opportunities… big red flag. I got punished with time alone when she had a bad day with the ex (mostly over the phone for child support and her constant suspicion of his lies) almost quite often. High conflict personality, never wrong, no genuine empathy, total disregard of boundaries and would make passive aggressive comments on me or how well achieved and college educated she is. The son mirrored all the same characteristics. I became part of the triangular abuse by them both always. The show would start between them both and I would get “see what my son does when you are here?…… oh I shouldn’t have said that.”. One time we were on the brink of breaking up and she wanted me to explain why to her difficult to connect with son. Big manipulating red flag. I have a daughter 20F that was rarely included in their plans and sometimes would see this stuff happening and also questioned it. what I observed in my ex for social relationships: had friend for like 9 years that she suddenly dumped over politics at the start of our relationship. Other than that she drowns her life with work, or finding a job. The real friendship connection is broken. Then continued to openly stalk the girls instagram and say how fake she is while drinking the morning coffee (also admitted that she knew she shouldn’t). Everyone became a sex object, the gym instructor, the yoga instructor, strangers, neighbors, and constantly enforce this openly to me. The patterns between her, her son and the ex are that of narcs to the bone. The list goes on but here are a few things I experienced. It’s not easy to run especially when you love someone so much. We ended on her cheating with a couple (we were practicing non monogamous) we had seen a couple 2 times till I got sick of the wife’s covert disrespect and trying to gaslight it to make me believe cheating had nothing to do with us. She had told me she was talking to them with an open ended admittance like she thought it would be ok to continue to see them knowingly as they want to sleep with her again. Only when she got the green light from them, was I old news. And the worst part ? No empathy for even the situation she manufactured. I believe there is a lot of unsaid truth in her life by observing, hearing, seeing and feeling. Those tiny alarm bells were ringing and all I could do is take mental notes.

Have a 2023 model T-Roc (Life trim I think) which works wonderfully with Android Auto. I don't have the voice control for the actual infotainment system activated and don't want to pay for it. However, I'm often pressing the "mic" button on Android Auto to command Spotify, Google Navigation, message people, make calls, etc. Obviously would prefer to use the voice button on the wheel than trying to sharp-shoot a small button on the touchscreen for safety reasons.
Is this possible at all? I'm willing to "hack" the software if there's something I can upload to it.

2023.05.30 20:16 Ev3rst0rm I made revisions to my Inertia story from before S9 in an attempt to make a final season different from the one we got.
In the S9 finale, Eddie became the new Avatar of the Negative Speed Force and warned Barry they “wouldn’t always see eye to eye” (whatever the heck that means). This season would start during an incident where Barry and Eddie DO see eye to eye - enough so for the disembodied Negative Speed Force voice inside Eddie’s head to get pissed off. Seeing Eddie as a hindrance to its aims of spreading until it is all that there is, it forsakes Eddie as it’s Avatar and plops him back on Earth Prime - but it allows him to keep his Cobalt Blue powers. Eddie remains on Earth Prime and serves as a reluctant occasional ally to the Flash and his team throughout the season. After doing that, the NSF perceives a grieving, angry young man in the year 2054. He has just lost his parents and younger siblings to Bart ROYALLY fucking up while on patrol as Impulse, and he is chosen by the NSF as its new Avatar. With his newfound power, he becomes Inertia, the reverse Impulse, and begins his mission to punish Bart. He eventually follows Bart and Nora to the present day, roping Barry into the conflict.
In the episode where Flash and Inertia meet for the first time, Barry is aiding Chief Singh and Captain Kramer in searching for a supply of missing meta-cuffs, when Bart and Nora arrive on the scene to ask for help with a new evil speedster. During the investigation, Barry calls his team (yes, this includes the Z-listers!) to a warehouse where he thinks the cuffs may have been taken. Seeing that the entire team is distracted, Inertia dashes in and reveals he stole the cuffs by cuffing every last member of the team. He has split and modified the cuffs into more like arm bracelets, so that Team Flash would still be able to fight even though they can’t access their powers. Unlike most of the rest of Team Flash, Inertia has formal martial arts training. Laughing all the while, Inertia puts on one of the bracelets and uses that training to absolutely WRECK Team Flash. In addition to breaking everyone’s arms and legs, he gives Cecile a concussion, temporarily blinds Allegra, and shatters Barry, Bart and Nora’s backs. Only Mark gives Inertia any trouble due to his own established fighting skill, but after a quick brawl Inertia manages to stab Mark through the gut. Inertia then removes everyone’s meta-dampening bracelets, dumps Cecile, Allegra and Mark at the hospital where they will remain for the rest of the season, leaves the other speedsters back at STAR Labs, and whisks Chester off to his hideout for tech support. He leaves Caitlin alone so she can treat the speedsters.
With the knowledge that he is up against the Flash, the Fastest Man Alive himself, as well as the belief that his “de-power and beat up” trick won’t work twice, Inertia decides to start stealing technology to upgrade his suit and give himself a chance against Barry. As he carries out this mission and generally makes life annoying for Barry and friends, the disembodied voice that bothered Eddie begins to bother Inertia, before eventually manifesting itself as Matt Letscher's Eobard (similar to the regular Speed Force manifesting itself as Barry's mom). Notably among this show's villains, Inertia has a much more prominent moral code - which he cites as his reasoning for letting the Z-listers live. He has some lines he does not want to cross, and Negative Speed Force Eobard regularly attempts to manipulate Inertia, taking advantage of his negative emotions to try and make him cross those lines. Inertia resists for some time, until it results in his powers getting weaker. After narrowly eluding capture in his weakened state one day, he is told he will never achieve his goal and is only exuding weakness by not doing what needs to be done - resulting in him finally giving in to the NSF's manipulation. Inertia lets his anger at Impulse consume him, and, aware that Bart is hiding behind Barry to escape his wrath, agrees to commit more heinous actions in order to get Barry out of the way.
By now he has reached a stage where Bart remaining unscathed only makes him angrier, and his crimes gradually become worse and worse. As his final battle with the Flash and his allies begins, about 2 episodes before the finale, Inertia's hate reaches a point where it threatens to consume him. At the tail-end of the fight, as Inertia charges himself up to kill a battered and bloody Impulse, the NSF feeds off that hate, and Inertia writhes in pain as his suit begins to charge up with red lightning. Inertia manages to phase out of his suit before he can be badly hurt, but he loses his power in the process. His suit suddenly explodes in a burst of lightning, machinery and debris, and in its place stands a revived Eobard Thawne! For kicks, Eobard beats Barry up a bit more. He then tells Barry and his team to heal their wounds and prepare for one final battle.
Without the Negative Speed Force powering him, Inertia’s rage and hate has faded, and his conscience kicks in, filling him with regret and shame. Inertia, now a regular human, decides to try and make peace with Barry, Bart and the others, and face punishment. By this point, Barry has gathered all the remaining living speedsters on Earth Prime to face Thawne and finish him for good, and, aware of how the Negative Speed Force manipulated him, invites Inertia to join them. Inertia agrees, and using speed-sharing, he has his powers briefly restored and he fights alongside the other speedsters to bring Thawne down. Towards the end of the fight, Thawne retreats into the Negative Speed Force, with all the speedsters in hot pursuit. As Barry and Eddie manage to make it in with Thawne, Inertia keels over, now unable to survive the high speeds a speedster is known for. Surrounded and comforted by the remaining speedsters, he dies, believing his fate to be a just punishment for his cruel actions.
As Barry and Eddie confront Thawne once more, a back-to-basics speedster chase sequence ensues. It culminates in a vicious brawl, which ends in a complete standoff with no one side able to defeat the other. Thawne taunts Barry throughout the conflict, laughing about the impact he has had on Barry’s life, and he swears he will continue to have a stronghold no matter how hard Barry tries to move forward. As he says this, Barry realizes how right Thawne is - their mutual hatred of each other has kept them from moving forward, keeping them in perpetual conflict with one another, over and over. Thawne’s demise is pulled directly from Flash #762 by Joshua Williamson - Barry forgives Thawne - who dissipates, screaming, as his history is reset - and we get a scene of Thawne in the rewritten future at the Flash museum, musing about the Reverse Flash and his hatred of the Flash. After that, we cut back to Barry and Eddie in the Negative Speed Force, with Eddie agreeing to stay behind and attempt to retake his place as the Avatar. Barry returns to Earth Prime and joins the other speedsters in mourning Inertia. The season ends as we get another monologue from Barry interspersed with several finale-esque scenes, including a Barry running shot, Iris with baby Nora, adult Nora and Bart back in 2054 burying Inertia, and more.

2023.05.30 19:30 kaykaym1347 Stuck between 2 options, What path do I choose? PA vs LCSW
To start this has been a long and grueling decision for me. I’m struggling between choosing to work in the medical field as a rad tech then go onto being a Physician Assistant or become a license clinical social worker and be a therapist.
My background: I received my undergrad degree in exercise science/pre-med with a minor in psychology. My goal was always to become a PA. COVID came and senior year was ruined. I ended up staying at my undergrad school to complete my Masters in Biology in hopes of gaining a better chance into PA school/raising my GPA. I finished this in 1 year in 2021.
After school I went to work as a medical assistant in different fields. I loved working in pediatrics and family medicine. I volunteered at a children’s hospital years before and enjoyed that as well. It was working at an urgent care/family practice that made me hate medicine. I was constantly dealing with COVID patients and the practice was run terribly. The turnover rate was high and I was experiencing some medical issues therefore leading me to quit. I thought I needed to find another path besides medicine as that job stressed me out more than I’ve ever been in my life.
After some time off and a lot of soul searching, I ended up volunteering at a psychology practice to see if this was a field I was interested in. I have always loved the human body, how the brain thinks and psychology was my minor. I enjoyed my time here and went on to apply to a graduate programs for this. I was tired of sitting around and not making an active decision for a career choice.
I ended up getting into a MSW program that would allow me to eventually become a LCSW and a therapist. I am excited but I can’t stop thinking that I could be going into the wrong career. I never stopped thinking about going back to school for medicine and whenever there is something medical, I am immediately interested.
I also applied for a rad tech program as well but withdrew my application during the interview round as I thought I made a decision to go the MSW route, but now I regret it. I would need to get 60 more science credits to raise my GPA in order to apply to PA school, hence why I thought being a rad tech would be great experience and allow for the GPA repairmen.
It’s not that I don’t think I wouldn’t like either, I just worry I might regret not pursuing the medical route later in life. I also worry that my medical issues (diagnosed with POTS) could be worse depending on either career. Both careers can be stressful and deal with peoples issues, so either way I will be dealing with that. My main issues is I can’t tell if my inability to let the idea of being a PA go is a sign I should continue on that path or if it’s not being able to give up the goal I worked many years towards.
Any advice from those who may have been stuck between decisions or have changed paths I would really appreciate!
