Why am I so sensitive? All I do is cry. Someone replies to me in a tone that doesn't sound nice and my brain hates it. What's wrong with me? Why can't I toughen up? Why do words affect me so badly?

Barely. I wish I had a hobby outside of video games because I never log off feeling better than when I logged in.
My therapist introduced me to CBT but I find that when I'm truly upset I can't remember to practice the exercises, only to have the situation get even more out of hand.


I can't hardly cry anymore, but when I do I seriously break down. I more or less get really silent to the point where I can't speak and I'll start to shake to the point of having massive anxiety where I feel as if the whole world is ending or I'm about to actually die. I don't know what to tell you to help you. But maybe realizing there's others right here on Dreamchan that are just as fucked up and as sensitive might help. I don't know.


be lucky you arent completely living inside your head everyday like I do OP


>My therapist introduced me to CBT
Your therapist tortured your cock and balls?


i'm sure they mean cognitive behavioral therapy but that would certainly make for an interesting twist in the story

I can tell this thread is gonna bomb with 0 replies but ill try anyway

This is beyond the shit I had as a teenager. I am in an extreme religious crisis. Born and raised Muslim (Egyptian which is 15%Christian. Living in the US). I. I start seriously thinking about converting to Christianity. Yet I still hang on to Islam. I probably read the Quran and the Bible more than 3 times each. On top of that I cant consult with any family members because of obvious reasons.(Extreme tension among me and my parents ruining my relationship indefinitly). If I become Christian. How will I tell them? It will ruin the family. Do I just lie my whole life? Religion or not, how can I live a life cut off from my parents socially? I have no idea where to go from here.

Why be Christian over Muslim. I would do my research before becoming or claiming to be anything. Also I would tell my parents to btfo. Coming from a Egyptian American too

>Why shouldn't gay people be allowed to mary each other? I'm not talking about a religious, but a strictly legal marriage, no church involved.
>People just want to be happy, it does not affect your life personally.
Marriage is religious, though. The government tried to offer homosexuals the same thing as married couples but under the name "civil union" instead of "marriage", but the homosexual community rejected it.

The homosexual community wants to destroy Christianity because it condemns them for indulging in sinful acts and forces them to face this reality. So instead of changing themselves to get closer to God, they instead decide to subvert and destroy anything that confronts them with the truth.

Homosexuals on average have many more sexual partners than straight people. It's because their lifestyle is one of bodily pleasure, not one of building a natural relationship. Because of this, they also suffer heavily from a higher suicide rate and a significantly higher probability of catching and spreading STDs. See the book "The Health Hazards of Homosexuality" by Mass Resistance for more (pic related, though this book has been banned by many major retailers. How interesting.)


File: 1609550979304.jpg (17.42 KB, 220x337, after-the-ball.jpg)

The point of marriage isn't just to commit to living with someone for the rest of your life. It's to form a spiritual bond between you and your partner. Through God, a married couple is bonded and are of one flesh. It's the example set out by Adam and Eve, who originally were a single entity.

Together, a married couple is able to create life. This is something that a homosexual couple will never be able to do. In this way, even though the married couple will grow old and die, they will still be able to live on through their children, their grandchildren and so on.

The whole "people just want to be happy" and "love is love" are the results of pro-homosexual propaganda that has been pumped through the populace via pop culture since the 90s. See the book "After The Ball" for more information on how this propaganda had been planned out and executed. (Also notice how people who say "love is love" never seem to understand that God is love and that acting through God's will is acting in love.)

>I take the pantheistic view, so an animal has just as much soul as I do. And just as much as a rock or a cloud does. Doesn't this seem like a much more liberating notion than the human species being the only thing in the cosmos having a soul
No, because it's false and nonsensical. How is that "liberating"?

Humans are the only species that have received the breath of life from God Himself. This granted us our consciousness which emanates from our souls. In the garden, God also granted humans (Adam) dominion over all of nature. So even though we are a part of it, we are encouraged to use it and shape it.

Simply put, out of the three major so-called Abrahamic religions, Christianity is the only one that is in favor of the truth. Remember that Satan is the father of lies. Judaism and Islam both encourage its believers to lie. See "Kol Nidre" and "Taqiyyah" for some examples respective of each.

Post what you did today to work towards your goals. Or if you did nothing, reflect on why and how you'll do better (don't be too hard on yourself though, perhaps you can even still do something today, even if small?). Hopefully you will feel more motivated and accountable.

>why not just use deeds?

I don't want to spam deeds for boring or very minor things, I'm ok with posting it in a thread though.

That ending situation possibly could have ended up worse and brought slight paranoia to me. Overall, the day was about attempting my goal of trying to get out of the house to focus on self-improvements one day at a time. The only other comments I have to make about the day is I don't see how people honestly work 8 hours a day while wearing a mask, I'm glad we didn't stay in locations very long as I was already suffocating after 15-25 minutes of wearing my mask. I'm not sure what I plan on doing next, I guess I'll try to visit or reach out to other family while also possibly working on some physical routine. Maybe even try cleaning up a little bit around the house. I'm not sure what to do about work yet as I'm still not yet ready to take that leap. But it's hard to not feel stressed out with everything going on when you don't have a source of income and my girlfriend has already been as patient with me as she has. Sorry for the long blogpost, hope everyone else is well, and doing what they can to make it through their personal ordeals. (Post 6)


Sorry that I had to split >>989 >>990 >>991 >>992 >>993 >>994 into six parts, didn't realize that the post limit size was what it was on here. It's been a while since I've been on here and thought I'd return once and a while. Another goal that I've been trying to achive is to communicate with others after a long period of isolation from any type of networking whatsoever. I'm trying to get the hang of honestly, just living again.


I continued with getting out of the house again today. This time I didn't really go anywhere in public, just got picked up and visited with my grandma for a couple of hours. Played with the dog a little bit even though I eventually started to get annoyed with it. Then ate dinner with her, helped back up some files for her onto laptop, and came home. The visit went okay, she ended up getting me a new pair of shoes which I needed while she was out earlier in the day. Once I got home, I felt somewhat motivated to do a small bit of house work. I changed the filter in the house, did some laundry, and took out the trash. My goal of self-improvement is still running it's course for two days in a row. I'm hoping I don't lose focus and start to slump back into my depression as well as become unmotivated to do anything again. Coming on here and posting about it as well as the "deeds" section is nice. I've thought on possibly making a blog or working on a small webpage. I just really don't want to throw an actual "personality" with it but maybe go by a pseudonym. I don't want a lot of attention towards me or my actual identity. Maybe just some way to keep somewhat an online diary of sorts of my day to day life with various topics. Of course at this time, it's just a mere thought.


I focused more on my mental health today by having a couple of self induced pep talks. Followed with some minimal straightening up around the house, such as throwing some stuff away and making the bed. Then I ate some dinner and tried some meditation. I wanted to keep myself calm as I started to feel some anxiety throughout the early parts of the day. It seemed to help for the most part. I'm going to try to find something different to take care of throughout the night hours. I might just relax and watch a movie, I'm not entirely sure yet.


This makes me sad because I used to set goals with my girlfriend every day. We'd wake up in the morning, greet each other with a goodmorning, and list our goals for the day. It was great.

Now, though, she's really been having difficulty with her depression, and I want her to be the best she can but it's so hard having to be emotionally there for her all the time and still try to do my own things. I feel like I'm getting bogged down and it sucks because I think she is such a wonderful person who doesn't deserve to feel such pain.

I'm a big believer that what you believe is reflected in what you do, but I really am torn as to what to do. I love her so much, but I'm tired and what I do is only a bandage on what the underlying issues are. She's been too busy to see a therapist and therapy in the past hasn't been too good for her. I'm sorry if this doesn't fit in, but I just wish someone out there could hear me and not think poorly on her. I wish I could be stronger for her.

Does anyone here suffer with OCD? How do you cope? I have the incessant need trigger myself and make myself feel dirty. It's ruining my life.
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Whoever therapist you were seeing, they. are. crap. But don't smear their crap all over therapy.


I kinda regret making this post I'm sorry


I don't really cope, I end up repeating myself or my daily routine 4-5 times as if I mess up once I have to start all over again. It really bothers me and stresses me out at times.


I dunno if this can possibly help you, but I too have to have to perfectly complete my routine, but what I do when I mess up, is I do everything backwards—literally—until I'm back at a state where I know everything before it was in order. For example, If I put toothpaste on my toothbrush before rinsing it, I suck the toothpaste back into the tube and then rinse the toothbrush, then put the toothpaste back on the toothbrush. It's really gross, but over all it's better than doing the whole routine over. I've also made that specific mistake only extremely rarely after I started using the backtracking trick. It's like a personal `undo.'
Another thing is I modularized my routine into self-contained subroutines, so that if I mess up, and I need to start over, I can start over at the start of the subroutine that I messed up.


i got put on a mood stabilizer and it helped me, i still get the urges but i take it less badly when I can't follow up on them

my adhd is getting to an unmanageable point. My motivation is gone, and all that I can focus on are my distractions. I wish for relief from the hell I am trapped in. I have dreams and aspirations and most importantly assignments due but I am stuck in this hell.

I hate my screen, I hate YouTube, I hate reddit, I hate 4chan. I am lost in the modern world. I need help

see a doctor


I second this.

Meditation could help, OP. It usually helps those feeling lost.


2 things. Get a good site blocker that can't be removed (I recommend cold turkey). Block every slacking site, even educational ones like youtube, for a certain time block and slowly increase it.

Next try to deconstruct why you're not doing work. Often it's a feeling of shame, so learn to forgive yourself, or an overwhelming feeling, break the task down than. If it's adhd you should look into the methods they use to start tasks

Again if it's ADHD I'd look into starting medication or taking an off the counter stimulant, coffee, to start building those good habits and then weening off.

Finally what helped me if repeating that starting an assignment or going without social media wont kill me


go walk or take the bus as far as you can and get lost for a little while


I'm also stuck in a hellish void of doing literally nothing but staying in an "imageboard loop" where I just go from imageboard to imageboard then I'll masturbate. Fix something to eat or some coffee. Might watch an episode of an anime or a 30-60 minute documentary. Then repeat until I go to bed at the crack of dawn just to repeat again each and everyday. I've been like this for at least 5 years straight now.

Paranoid thinking. Can't order food from Door Dash or Uber Eats. They'll poison it. Don't want to make dinner, it'll make more dishes. I don't want to do the dishes because I'm tired. I'm permanently tired because of depression. Get anxious because I think my life is spiraling. Desperately want to break the chain but being too uncomfortable to do so.

I'm scared.

That's really good to hear. I'm still hoping to achieve any improvements. I haven't made any steps yet on attempting to find a psychologist or even return to where I went before. I feel as if due to the pandemic they'd want me to do video calls or something over the phone which I'm not willing to do at all. Such a troubling situation. I guess I can say, I haven't really become any worse. I've been avoiding specific negative triggers that throw me into panic states as well. I never had heard about that regarding the Columbine survivor though. Interesting and extremely wild odds.


get some exercise. you dont even have to go outside. do some pushups and squats. at least open a window though


I'd give you a source but I can't seem to find it, so I sure hope I wasn't accidentally giving false information. Anyway, my therapist does phone calls and not video calls. Is it possible you can ask them to do a phone call instead since you can't do video calls?

Exercise really helps tbh but my kneecaps absolutely despise squats. I end up doing yoga a lot of the time and then walking on the treadmill. Works just as good for me.


I'm too scared about the phone calls being recorded. I probably wouldn't really talk about anything specific or be truthful being on the phone.


most of your paranoid/anxious thinking will be solved by just eating food. yeah, exercise is good too as other anons have said, but eating is primarily important. second is sleep. third is exercise.

Let's talk about sleep and sleep health.

Napping for 30 minutes a day in addition to getting a full 8 hours of sleep every night (at the same time!) has been one of the best things I did to improve my life. I really recommend it for everyone. You will think much faster, you will remember things easier, ideas will just appear in your head easily, and you won't be so depressed. It feels like going from being a lifeless zombie on autopilot to Neo in the matrix.

Also, and more importantly, having to go sleep and nap every day at the same time provides a structure to my horribly unorganized life, I used to think it will make my life more confining than it is and waste my time, but it's the opposite, you actually gain more time the more often you nap and sleep throughout the day, and this simple schedule gives me something solid around which to organize other things in my day so I don't feel like I'm just drifting aimlessly. I want to give a shout out to the anon who posted Jordan Peterson, as it really confirms what he talks about in his lectures, at least in regards to having a schedule.

idk if youre being sarcastic


I'm not sure if that picture is a joke but sleep has multiple phases between REM and deep sleep and it's unlikely you can get the same benefits from a 30 minute nap every 8 hours.
Sounds like flat-earther tier nonsense.




Damn, dude…

I read once that if you go deep enough through your anus, you can reach the spleen.
Suposedly massaging the spleen internally grants an incredibly intense sensation, like a constant orgasm that doesn't run out.
Couldn't find any info on Google, i doubt there's any truth to it, but i'm still curious nonetheless, have you guys ever heard anything about it?

You're being trolled. They're trying to get you to die embarrassingly.


I suspect someone just got the spleen and prostate confused


Follow your dreams :^)


This thread makes me exceedingly uncomfortable.


This is from Guts by Chuck Palahniuk by the way. Gross read, don't recommend it.
