    From the Mayo Clinic...

    "Eye floaters are spots in your vision. ... Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. Microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump and can cast tiny shadows on your retina. The shadows you see are called floaters."

    Great so now I'm old 😩😫😩😫😩.

    No no. Flashes are different from floaters. You’re talking about flashes.

    Haha. Nah. Growing, that's all. :smile: Our bodies change every decade. Doesn't have to be bad, just different.

    Is it ok to eat the same thing for breakfast, lunch, and dinner a week at a time?

    Sure, why not? I never make it that long, but if I make a big pot of spaghetti sauce or chicken soup or beef stew, I eat it every time I'm hungry for 3 to 3-1/2 days until it's gone cuz I enjoy it. By day 3... I'm glad it's gone so I can move onto something else. How long have you gone eating the same thing for each meal?

    Same thing weeks at a time. Usually meal prep on Sunday and try to make enough for the week. Ill do that for months

    Serious question: How do you handle being given the silent treatment/stonewalling by someone you care about? Can be a friend, relative or s/o.

    I use it as an opportunity to get some peace and *kitten* quiet until that person can act like an adult.

    whoever cares the least wins and all that- so if someone doesn’t want to talk to you it’s best to find someone else who does.

    why are they silent? like do they have hurt feelings? if so and if u might’ve caused it, maybe try saying sorry. i’m not saying u caused it at all, just throwing out ideas
    if they are mad maybe the silence is just them taking time to calm down which i think is totally reasonable thing to do like i’d rather someone take time to themselves to work things out instead of yell or whatever. as long as they come back later to talk kwim?

    Fair enough. But how do you resolve anything with this person if they give you this treatment with no real reason why? Do you initiate contact with them or just reap in the peace and quiet until they get back to you?

    I usually enjoy the peace and quiet.. and then get accused of being a *kitten* who doesn't care because I didn't bombard the person with affection/attention.

    Why do you think I'm here? I have no friends close by and all my family members live hundreds of miles away! :lol:

    Good question. In this particular case I have no idea why I'm being shut out. I've left a few very benign responses just to let them know I was thinking of them and left it alone. Radio silence on the other end so far. Been a few days at this point.

    If they needed time to cool down, I would like to think they were responsible enough (and mature enough) to at least tell the other person that, but what do I know?

    If you haven’t had a fight then it could just be life getting in the way? like idk if this is your best friend or just random person u talk to or significant other so that prolly makes a difference

    It depends who... If it's the wife, by clawing away at my insides until she just tells me what's wrong and we talk it out...

    Anyone else... I'm just like, well if that's how you feel, you do what's best for you and I'm at peace

    Thankfully, no. Not my s/o. Someone I do care a lot about, but not him. He's terrible at doing "silent treatment" because he always wants to "fix it right now". :lol: Makes resolutions a lot faster, for sure.
