2021.10.18 18:55 Leg-Pristine Grandma with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy on hospice
New to this sub and grateful for any words of wisdom (or empathy) that anyone might be able to offer!
Grandma has been suffering from this progressive illness (PSP) for about two years - maybe longer, since she was living alone for quite a while. She has been in agony for months. She can no longer move on her own or speak at all. Before this happened, she had told my mom and me that her worst nightmare was to be trapped in her own body without the ability to move or communicate. We thought she just needed to put more effort into exercising because she would refuse to even walk around the block or do a few leg raises in bed when she was still able. We tried to call encourage her without being judgmental as we watched her decline with each visit.
My mom and step-dad have been taking care of her at their home in Texas until recently, my step-dad developed health issues of his own. My mom and Grandma rode to Nebraska in a medical transport vehicle. My mom said it was a very bumpy, uncomfortable ride that smelled like diesel fumes the whole way there. Since returning to Nebraska where they are staying with my Aunt, she has been crying uncontrollably for days. I am working remotely from a motel down the road. My mom stays with her 24/7 and can’t sleep.
My Aunt went gambling in Deadwood over the weekend because her husband, who lives and works a couple hours away now, had gotten her tickets months ago. I rushed to arrange a way to get here when I found out last minute so my mom wouldn’t have to be alone with her. Mom refused to start giving Grandma the morphine until my Aunt returned. This seemed really cruel to me.
Now, I feel complicit in the perpetuation of Grandma’s suffering. I want to do better for her but don’t know how.

2021.10.18 18:55 TCGSeriousMike 2004 Chevy Impala LS - Alternator/Battery Issues
Own a 2004 Chevy Impala LS (with the 3.8L V6 engine) and over the last month or two have had issues with it quitting while driving.
When driving, it’ll occasionally drop RPMs (start fluctuating around 1-2k), headlights and dash lights flicker then just quit. When you re-crank it, it’ll turn over and start for 1-5 seconds and then do the same thing.
Eventually, it’ll start without issues and let you drive again.
Replaced the battery and alternator and am still having this issue. No corrosion on battery terminals/connectors either.

I’m on day 3 detoxing from caffeine. I’ve got a constant full headache, a dry tongue despite drinking at least 1 glass a water every hour along with electrolyte tabs, nausea and diarrhea. Is this really worth it? What improvements can I expect - I’m starting to lose the will to fight?

2021.10.18 18:55 DarkBoi1987YT FNF Mod Issue
When I load a mod on any engine other than Kade Engine, the animations start off all choppy and my input shit is all screwed up. The animations fix themselves when I load a week but the inputs never do. I have an offset of 0 yet when I hit notes it doesn't count as me hitting them. Anyone have an idea on how to fix this?
