Last night was… bad… I had a psychotic episode and I called a friend I hardly know 23 times. I don't even remember what dumb shit I said to get.

I woke up this morning and found a sticky note on my bed telling me to call her when I was feeling better. I stressed out about calling her but I eventually manned up and called her. It went… Shockingly well, actually. So well that I've actually got a date lined up for Saturday. Life is funny.

What, so you can't share your issues with the person you're having a relationship with? Do you know what a relationship is? If the girl is really just doing this out of sympathy for OP, that will show very quickly. I can hardly see how this will 'destroy' the girl unless OP is an XXXTentacion-type violent depressive.

Bottling only makes it harder.
This thread is intented for people who would like to rant and write out their feelings.

It's possible to just spill everything in the textbox, explain it detailed or even write poems/haikus or stories, whatever your want.
You can give yourself a time- or character limit if you feel overwhelmed with writing down all that is going on.
You may also ask for advice or similiar.


It's hard to keep up a happy face, don't hide under a mask in order to lie to yourself.
Be honest with yourself and your feelings, that's the first step towards self improvement.

Sometimes i feel very angry at myself and at other people, my mom is cheating on my dad, when i learned about the fact i asked my older sister what to do, i was prepared to contain the anger of my sister, but she told me to let them sort their own issues, that i had to think about my own well being and not rock the boat, i feel i should scream and denounce the whore of a mother i have.Also learned that my sister is a slut in "open" relationship with her husband,.I feel very angry and very sad.No need to say but i have come to the conclusion that women are only to leech on men and when they become weak and old they are left in the trash.

To summarize i am weak and i feel angry and very sad about the nature of women.The worst of all, if i tell my dad about it, my mom will live in the streets most probably, and i still love her, that makes my anger turn to also intense suffering and self hatred.

Most of Freud's ideas are now discredited or outdated in the psychoanalytical community, but he did pave the way for other more competent psychologists like Jung. Any therapist that still practices Freudian psychology is so fucking clueless they should be fired, it would be like coming to a job that requires chemical engineering when you have a degree in alchemy.

Saying that psychotherapy is a scam would be painting with too broad a stroke, some therapists do genuinely want to help you, the fact that they may be getting paid for it doesn't change anything. You could argue that their methods are ineffective, but that also depends on the therapist and which methods they use.

Personally, I learned enough about this stuff that I could almost become a psychotherapist myself, I did it to help myself with my own problems, and I really love helping other people with this knowledge whenever I can, but once you get to this level you're faced with the annoying fucking problem of actually getting all these miserable people to want to help themselves. I have friends whose problems are super easy to solve, but they just won't even begin to solve them because of their own mental barriers, and this is where I imagine the real challenge for a psychotherapist begins. It's like being a doctor and you can easily cure some illness with a few tablets, but all your patients are superstitious and don't believe that medicine works.

So don't be like these guys, anon. Find a therapist that works for you, find good friends who can listen to you, make some kind of moral effort, or at least do self-therapy through the internet. It's absolutely worth it.

I really want to get shrooms or LSD for these reasons:
1. To cure depression (I really need a break from that shit, it's not helping me at all).
2. Microdosing for productivity and creativity like the Silicone Valley guys.
3. I look for hidden wisdom and "life secrets" everywhere. Usually the most valuable knowledge in life is either never taught and super obscure, or it's hidden in plain site. Knowledge is power to me, it's saved me so many times, so I look for it everywhere and I need something that can expand my mind and help me make connections, if not outright give me some cosmic revelation, though I don't expect the latter.
4. If nothing else, it will just be "fun" as people say, or at least I can say I tried it.

But anyway, I don't even know how to buy any of that stuff or where, I'm kinda paranoid so I'm afraid I will get into some police honeypot or buy bad quality shit that will kill me.

Mushrooms are easy to grow from spores. In most places the spores themselves are legal, even where they aren't the chances of getting caught are slim. I recently bought some from thesporedepot anonymously using bitcoin. Look up PFtek for more info on an easy way to culture them at home. LSD is a bit harder to get now that the market is flooded with more dangerous, but easier to manufacture analogs and similcra. Last I checked only a few people per continent still made and sold it. Unfortunately I can't say who is still in the game today, and lots of the darknet markets have gone dead recently. So I can't help on that front.

That said, don't get your hopes up too much. Psychedelics are kinda overhyped. In trials for depression nearly as many show deterioration in condition after use as show improvement. Personally after tripping on LSD I only became more sure that I should kill myself. Just putting it out there because you ought to know the risks going in.

I live with Schizoid Personality Disorder (and Schizophrenia). It's frustrating to say the least. I just simply don't want to be around others that I don't really, really love, but people force themselves on me. One of the most angering things about it is being misunderstood by people. Everyone thinks that because I avoid them that I hate them (the least frustrating) or that I'm depressed (very frustrating) or something like that. I do have abandonment issues with people that I really love though. I can't stand not being around them or not spending time with them sometimes.

It's just how it is. I can't know anything about how other people think or feel. I only know how my world is. I guess I might be schizoid. I've been a hikki for a decade and never felt lonely. I don't really enjoy much, and I don't really feel most emotions strongly. I guess just about the only thing I like is dreaming. I suppose my life is bad, but I don't really want to be something else, just not be at all.

I might be able to describe dissociation and derealization because there was a time before I had them, and a time after and I can compare the two. Derealization is odd. It's like looking at something, and seeing it not as a single real thing, but as a bunch of unrelated properties. There's a redness, and a roundness, and a shininess here, so I must be looking at an apple. But I no longer see the apple as a single thing that has all those properties. I mean that's not exactly true, but that's the best I can describe it. Disassociation is sort of like that but for my thoughts and feelings. It's like they exist somewhere else in a disjointed fashion and don't really concern "me". It's almost a bit like being half dead. Like I lost half of what I am somewhere and I can't find it again. I'm confused and can't remember what's happened to me, but I don't even really care since I don't really feel like this is important. Like, it's someone else's problem. Another way to put it is it's like going in and out of light fevered sleep, but in waking life.

Generally eating better also really helps. Of course, bathing daily and generally being more hygenic are serious helps.

I highly recommend taking a look at /r/skincareaddiction's wiki, they have a pretty good suggested beginner routine to follow. For years I had a bit of acne that I could never seem to escape no matter how careful I was about not touching my face, but I followed a few of their tips/suggestions and it cleared right up! I can't speak to how effective their advice is when it comes to moderate/severe acne since mine was really minor, but it seems like a lot of people have found success with the advice there.

https://www.reddit.com/r/SkincareAddiction/wiki/index

Aside from that, general upkeep stuff like drinking plenty of water, not touching your face, maintaining a healthy diet, is really important. I also agree with >>302 , talking to a dermatologist would be in your best interest since you said your acne is a bit on the severe side.

I know this may be a bit late since this post is over a year old, but I personally have a nice older croatian lady in my town that does skincare for her customers. It costs 50-60€ an hour, depending on how much she likes you and how nice and polite you are to her. It really helped me going there about once a month. Also, as an additional tip, for anything service related, if you're european, go to eastern european people, the vast majority of them are honest and hard working people that do their job well because they believe it's the right thing to do, not because they get money out of it unless you hit one of the rare mines where you get your shit fucked up because they don't know what they're doing and are hoping you don't notice.

I'm legitimately curious if any of my fellow chu/bm/en(?) have insightful advice/experience on this topic:

Is there really a point when taking any steps towards any level of 'transitioning' becomes fundamentally a waste of time?

I'm past the third-way point in my life, and I feel like shit; I would never want surgery or anything like that, but when I look into the mirror I see something too far gone to even bother /trying/ to cd, or hell, even start a tailored exercise regimen instead of general fitness. I know people redefine their identity at all sorts of different points in their lives; but I feel that on some fundamental level I *know* it'll never "work," so why even bother? why face that disappointment? Is never knowing the even worse fate, though, I don't know.

For that matter, do any of you have any tricks for dealing with that profound sense of I guess ennui? Ways of normalising and coping with the eternal questioning of oneself; on how to better deal with self-perception, or fuck, even meditation techniques to better understand one's true state of mind, potentiality and desires?

So I'd like to know what, if any, experiences y'all've had wrestling, and any advice you may carry towards the real boots-on-the-ground realities of overcoming or compromising with, any of this. Honest personal insights.

Only drink you must drink is water, maybe sometimes some green tea. (it must be brewed fresh at home, NO SHITTY NORMAL-IDIOT BRANDS, many crappy brands brew yellow and taste like shit. real green tea brews nice green color so make sure you test out a few of the lesser known and more natural brands as those tend to brew better tea.)
(Try to get natural spring water for low natural fluoride content or a reverse osmosis water brand or a home reverse osmosis filter to avoid craploads of fluoride and chlorine)
(Most random filters you can buy can remove some chlorine but never claim to remove 100% of all fluoride, so don't trust that for that purpose)
(always call up or email your water brand and ask them for a detailed water quality report. Make sure fluoride levels and ingredient lists are 100% transparent and clearly mentioned. If they wont give you this, find another brand that will. The nice ones always have no problem sending you an email with all the details you ask for. Just be polite)

GOOD CARBS ONLY: beans, lentils, peas, oats

GOOD PROTEIN ONLY: beans, lentils, spirulina, hemp protein powder, nuts and seeds

GOOD FATS ONLY: raw nuts and seeds and avocado and coconut

LOTS OF VEG: brightly colored of various colors. frozen veg is cheapest and will give you the most. roast/bake in oven and eat with balsamic vinegar

LITTLE FRUIT: dark blue/purple/red FROZEN BERRIES = cheapest and give you the most for your money.

supplement nascent iodine, b12 methylcobalamin, and D3 cholecalciferol. (avoid cyanocobalamin and lanolin- easier to avoid if you try to find "vegan" versions of these)
(Look up the long list of symptoms associated with deficiency in these)
(I found these supplements on amazon, and I felt that I found more options and better prices than what I found by walking into normal store)
(I should mention that many iodine supplements are mixed as in part ioDINE and part ioDIDE(s). I would suggest doing your own research on a fully 100% ioDINE one, vs the other. I tried to avoid mixes after what I learned from my research. Some "totally legit people" love to crawl out of the woodwork and scream "NASCENT IODINE ISN'T REAL!!!!". Well I fucking bought some and I liked it.)
In my personal experience I was getting lots of dry cracked bleeding skin and thinning of the skin all over my body, like I would brush up against something and my hands would get cut like nothing and get blood blisters and my lips and butthole would constantly get dry and crack and bleed for no fucking reason. I had some joint pain and eczema and psoriasis (very minor thank God) I also had some weird thyroid issues and my hair was falling out and I felt very weak and tired all the time and when depression hit, it would hit extra hard, like even more than usual (which was literally always, and still is, but not so sharply painful, but obviously still very painful) I'm just saying that in my own personal experience, after I took these and followed the instructions on the bottles I noticed some improvement and I'm probably going to keep it up from now on. I'm glad I discovered these, so I'm just saying- Do your own research.

Fasting is easy to pick up if you do it right. You can do it daily no problems, this is how I did it I wasn't really strict with myself about this.
Just spend 16 hours a day not eating, counting sleep. If you sleep for 8 hours, do not eat for the first four hours you're awake, and then the last four hours in the day. As you get more used to this crunch the hour down one by one until you find a limit. Some people can take this days or weeks, but for your purposes just getting the discipline to reject food will be enough.
The next thing to do is eat things that fill you up and give you energy. Don't eat junk, candy, or sugar in general. Eat fruit, vegetables and meat with fat. Your body craves these things and 6oz of fatty ground beef and vegetables holds you better than a bunch of fried breads and is better for you.
Purge soy, everything with soy in it gives you estrogen, and its always loaded with other shit you don't need and doesn't do anything for you.

Try to get some form of exercise with this and drink green tea to calm your initial cravings for food. The hard craving will last two months before you're used to it and the tea will suppress your appetite while you adjust.
Good luck anon.

Fasting actually works. There's an app you can get called "Zero" that I use and it helps me to stay on track. When I was really dedicated for a month, everyone was commenting on how much progress I had made and I fit into something that I wasn't able to wear for a long time. I stopped for a few weeks and gained it all back so now I'm starting again. It sounds difficult but it's incredibly easy, especially if you're not someone who enjoys breakfast.

The information on soy though is bullshit. If soy contained oestrogen, Asian men would be walking around with giant man boobs. There's nothing wrong with soy and things like soy milk, tofu and edamame are great low calorie, filling snacks or additions to healthy meals. If anything, avoid dairy.

Nta but beans are really filling. You can make a chilli with kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans and I can guarantee it will fill you. Also you can add beans to soups, stir fries and salads.
