Best ways to distance yourself from a toxic family member?

2021.09.20 16:55 np819 Best ways to distance yourself from a toxic family member?

After I graduated college a few years ago I moved across the country for work to a city about 20 minutes away from my Uncle. Growing up I always viewed him as the "Fun Uncle" who we saw a few times a year and was always this larger than life character. The older I got, especially when I was in college, I realized how much of his lifestyle revolved around drinking and partying. Regardless of that, we always had a good time together but all our interactions were surface level, no real depth.
After moving near him initially it was a lot more of the same. He showed me around, we would go out for drinks occasionally and my relationship with him was pretty much what it had always been, I just saw him a little bit more.
This is where the problems begin...
Not long after moving here my grandmother (his mom) started to develop really bad dementia. She lives near the rest of my family and her care ultimately became my Dad and Aunts responsibility. The two of them have been nothing short of heroes. for a full year and a half they alternated living with her so that she didn't have to leave her house, putting many aspects of their own lives on hold. They spared no expense in visiting multiple doctors to determine the best course of action for care. Early on in the pandemic when nothing was known of the virus my grandmother got COVID and my Aunt quarantined with her for two weeks literally putting her own life on the line. Ultimately they exhausted every single option before they determined the only option was to place her in a long term care facility, which they did with a heavy heart and are still extremely involved in her life.
Throughout all of that my Uncle has been so mean and nasty to my Aunt and Dad. His opinion is that they gave up on her, that she doesn't have bad dementia, and that ultimately they are killing her. While holding these strong opinions he has seen her for around a total of a month in the past 2 years and has not really offered to help at all regarding her care.
Initially I felt bad for him and assumed he was just in denial regarding her condition so I tried to be there for him in hopes he would get better. Sadly it has become clear to me that unless he receives professional help he will only get worse and I need to distance myself for my own sanity. I have been trying just to avoid him but I receive a lot of calls and texts and am unsure what to do to make it clear that unless he gets help I can't be in his life.

2021.09.20 16:55 gregveres migration assistant with source drive failing?

I have a 9 year old nas with 4 drives and the one of those drives just started to "fail" (2 bad sectors). I decided to purchase a new nas with 6 drives for a healthy upgrade.

I am now trying to use synology migration assistant to migration from the old nas to the new nas. The problem is that migraiton assistant checked the source nas and said it is unable to perform the migration because of the "abnormal storage status". This is rediculous. I would say that a major use case of the migration assistant is to clone a failing nas!

Does anyone know if there is a way around this?

2021.09.20 16:55 hamartiated 27, guy, Europe - Audio chat - In search for online friend for thoughtful conversations

Hey! 🙂 I'm looking for a fellow adult who's open-minded towards audio conversations (on an app). It could be entirely anonymous (no video), but I'm sadly not huge on texting 😔
General interests: literature, art history, philosophy, psychology, economics, languages, geography.
Music (all over the place): Seafret, M83, Philip Glass, Lord Huron, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Of Monsters and Men, Yndi Halda, God is An Astronaut, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Keaton Henson, Laura Marling, Max Richter, If These Trees Could Talk, Clint Mansell, some songs of Sia and Adele, and many other artists. If you don't recognise some of those names, it could be a plus, because we could mutually enhance our preferences in music.
Literature: non-fiction (microhistory, biographies, geography and culture); fiction as in sci-fi, mystery, thriller, subtle philosophical supernatural horror. I'm more of a prose person, though I do appreciate some poetry from time to time. I might not be really refined for it? I find narratives extremely compelling, especially when it comes to crafting the story in a way that ensures the flow of events and miniscule details that are going to build up towards the resolution. I prefer contemporary prose, althought I have done my share of getting to know some crucial classics, both for school and out of my own curiousity. When it comes to psychology, my horizons were influenced partly by Viktor Frankl, Erich Fromm, Rollo May, and some others who worked within the loosely defined existential school of thought. Philosophically speaking, my interests concern mostly ethics and aesthetics.
A bit more about me: Depression issues and anxiety; a bit socially conservative; do not play any videogames. I'm a bit of a bookworm, and I tend to talk about lofty, ivory tower ideas, but some have told me that I do possess a sense of humour (which is probably amongst the most subjective types of assessments).

2021.09.20 16:55 Sinsofthefarmer Odds Rockets are the worst team in the league next season?

I think it is very high. Poorly put together team. Terrible ownership and put together coaching. Best player Christian Wood is classic puts up stats without much real impact. These type of teams usually flounder. Who should they target next season with another top 4 pick?

2021.09.20 16:55 joeek Seeking advice! My two cats used to love each other, but after meeting our friends new cat in our home for a visit they now can’t stand each other..

This happened yesterday when my friend brought their new kitten (female) to our home to meet our two cats(also females, 3 and 2 yrs old).
They were very hesitant to meeting the new cat because this is their home and territory. The kitten didn’t mind she was very forward but our cats watched from afar and stayed away.
After they hade left, our two cats just starred at each other with big eyes and then started hissing and it continued throughout today as well.
We’ve bought Feliway to hopefully ease their nerves but I’m looking to you to see if you guys have any tips or know why they are reacting this way towards each other?

2021.09.20 16:55 throwawaySC18 Does anybody else have any personal stories about the Murdaughs? I’ll start.

Throwaway because obviously a small town. I remember going to a gathering at the Murdaugh’s house 2014ish and drinking in their pool late one night. Alex and Maggie knew there were minors drinking at their house. ~2015ish going to numerous parties and Paul would be belligerently drunk and aggressive. After a couple of run ins with “Timmy” I never wanted to be around the guy again.

2021.09.20 16:55 SometimesIpaintstuff Does anyone know if you can do overnight Malt o Meal like you can overnight oats?

My friend gave me a box of this stuff and I was hoping there might be a way to modify it with protein powder so I can get more protein in for my workouts. I'd love an overnight-oats type of dish so I can just grab and go in the mornings but I have no idea if that works with Malt o Meal. Has anyone done this? Does it work? I can't find a lot of protein recipes that use this instead of oats. I'd like to use it up rather than waste it, for sure.

2021.09.20 16:55 AfroMidgets How is the Talladega Garage Experience on Saturdays vs Sundays?

Taking my Dad to Dega this year after being away for a few years and want to treat him to the garage experience. With their being 2 races on Saturday this year, I think he'd enjoy having access to the garage experience that day vs Sunday. How Saturday compared to Sunday when it comes to experience? I.e. will there still be teams in the cup garage working on their cars? What will you get to see/experience with the truck/xfinity cars? Any insight would be great!
