Never seen an AMA like this, so I thought I'd give it a shot. If anyone even cares haha. proof

Some context,

I'm a 22 years old 1st generation Korean-American dude.

I work in the greater Atlanta area. There's a decent korean population here and it's littered with authenthic and also americanized korean bbq spots.

I've worked at 5 korean bbq places so far as a server. I cook and provide service at the table. I consider myself quite knowledgeable and know the ins and outs of this side of the industry.

An example of the food offered at my current restuarant workplace is shown here in this picture link: https://imgur.com/a/Zk8uwkm

Ask me anything and I will answer. What's it like, recommendations, etiquette, etc. No questions are off limit :)

====================================

My favorite questions so far:

Tips for noobs/first timers?

I’m John Troyer. I grew up in the American Funeral industry, and focus on the interdisciplinary study of death, dying and dead bodies. I also run the Death Reference Desk which scours the web and beyond for All Things Death: from recommended books to commentary and analysis of death in the news. The COVID pandemic brought significant death and dying issues into everyday conversation and the pandemic also highlighted just how unprepared we are to manage the logistics of death.

In 2022 MIT Press published my book, “Technologies of the Human Corpse,” which examines the relationship of the dead body with technology through history, from 19th-century embalming machines and photography, to the AIDS Epidemic of the 1980s and today’s radical life extension tools.

I’m here from 2-3pm BST to field any questions you may have about death — good death, bad death, sad or nuanced death, culturally- and politically-charged death. Anything goes. Let’s talk death.

Proof: Here's my proof!

Hurricane Ian was an unprecedented catastrophic event. When this happens, there is a great deal of uncertainty over what is or is not covered by insurance, or whether you should file a claim at all.

I am an attorney specializing in the practice area of property insurance claims in the state of Florida. I regularly lecture to some of the largest conferences in the state on case law and building code compliance in emergency situations. I am here to answer any questions I can to help guide people through this tumultuous time. AMA!

I'm chef Brooke Siem, Food Network "Chopped" Champion and author of the newly published book, MAY CAUSE SIDE EFFECTS.

Though most people know me from Chopped (Season 32, Episode 6), my book is about antidepressant withdrawal, a under-addressed topic that affects roughly half of people who take antidepressants. Source

I'm here to talk about the fun stuff (Chopped! Ted Allen! Losing control of your crabs national television!) and the not so fun stuff (being in antidepressant withdrawal while filming Chopped, how to talk to your doctor about safe deprescribing, questions parents should ask when it comes to medicating their kids.)

Note that I AM NOT A DOCTOR AND DO NOT GIVE MEDICAL ADVICE. What I can do is share what I've learned in order to help people have better conversations with their doctors and for doctors to better understand their patients' experience. And I can give you a kickass chicken thigh recipe in the process, too.

Proof: Here's my proof!

ETA: Going to wind down at 8pm PST but will answer more questions tomorrow. Thanks everyone!

Hello - My name is Trish Flaherty. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Addiction Drug Counselor (CADC). 

I work online, providing therapy to individuals who are experiencing challenges related to addiction and compulsive behaviors. This may be from their addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, nicotine, work, food, money, or codependency. It may also stem from being affected by someone else's addiction. This may include a partner, parent, sibling, or child.

I'm passionate about helping people find solutions so they can let go of the insanity that is ruling their life. I help people find a way "through" to the other side of their unmanageability.

While I cannot provide therapy in this AMA space, I'm happy to answer general questions about addiction to help empower you to make choices that will enhance your life.  

So, Ask Me Anything!!!

Disclaimer: This post is for educational and informational purposes only and not therapy or a substitute for therapy. If you're experiencing safety concerns about yourself or others, please get in touch with the National Suicide Help Line at 9-8-8 or go to your local emergency room.

Edit: I will be signing off this evening (9/30) at 7pm CST. I will check back in tomorrow, 10/1 and answer any new questions. Thank you!

Edit Update: Thank you all for coming to my AMA, for asking questions, for sharing, and for reading. I wish you all a sense of peace in your hearts, hope when it feels hard to imagine the next steps of your future, and an ability to remember with more love than pain.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at https://www.cheriegustafsonlcpc.com/

************************************************************************************

In the wake and continuation of Hurricane Ian, there are millions of people impacted directly, and many more bracing for impact. Many people are missing, many have lost loves ones or cannot locate them, and the death count is most certainly going to rise.


There are also many more who are impacted indirectly. I myself was sitting on Fort Myers Beach with my mother just seven months ago, after having lunch at a restaurant that is no longer there, directly next to the famous pier that is now mere remnants. We had ice cream in Times Square. I bought souvenirs for my children in the shops. My mom has wintered in Fort Myers Beach for 25 years, and had hoped to return this winter. I have friends and family with homes or at college on the east coast of Florida. There is rampant and profound shock and grief within Florida and far beyond.


Everyone understands grief as a natural response to a death, but grief can also be experienced after many other kinds of loss as well, such as the loss of a home, a community, a job, a relationship (marriage, friendship, family estrangement), one’s physical health, empty nesting, the death of a pet, and even a shift in religious or spiritual beliefs.


Some important things to remember:

Update #2 [2:05pm EDT]: Thank you all for your questions and vulnerability in sharing here. Seriously, being truly vulnerable about sex is hard work. I hope the info shared here was helpful - happy to have been of support. So cool to see everyone's interest in sex and sexual health. I won't be taking any additional questions. Continuing to work through the ones posted, won't get to them all, unfortunately. Thank you for understanding.

Feel free to sift through the comments in case you find something helpful and to support your fellow Redditors who may be struggling. One of the best parts of hosting this AMA was seeing how kind most people were to each other. Your thoughtfulness can mean so much to the person on the other end of it. Thank you for having me :)

---

Update #1 [12:05pm EDT]: I'm working my way through your great questions. I won't be taking any additional questions soon to allow time to get through the ones posted. I'll update when I'm no longer taking questions.

Hi there! I’m Christene Lozano, a sex therapist specializing in helping people restore emotional and sexual intimacy. I am a Certified Sex Therapist (CST), Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT).

I wanted to hop on Reddit to host my second AMA for World Sexual Health Month. We live in a society and culture in which many people are both obsessed with sex and also embarrassed about it. While sex is abundantly advertised in the media, many feel shame and have difficulty talking about sex. Even talking about it with your long-term partner can be hard. From desire, masturbation, and porn, to sexual intimacy, orgasms, and sexual trauma – you and your questions are welcome here.

Due to the topic of sex being uncomfortable for many, please be kind and considerate when asking questions and commenting. Stay curious and non-judgmental. We are a group of diverse cultures, ethnicities, spirituality backgrounds, sexual orientations, sexual experiences, genders, and so forth. What works for one person may not work for another. We want to keep this space safe for everyone.

*Note to my SA/PA community including partners: Because this AMA will be hosted in the IAmA sub, there will likely be many non-SA/PA questions and comments. Some folks may have sex and relationship questions you find triggering. Please notice if triggers get stirred up for you and practice some healthy self-care.

I’ll be here at 10:00am EDT to answer your sex and relationship questions. AMA.

I may not be able to address every question, and I will edit this post when I am no longer taking questions. Please do not private message me. I will kindly redirect you back to this AMA if I am still taking questions. Thank you for understanding.
