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.

Getting into college is a good thing for a lot of people, but now I just wish I hadn't entered at all. My problem isn't even studying, it's having to "socialize" and be good at talking to other people so you can get good grades. I'm very close to kick the bucket and just do whatever I want, but might not be the best idea.

>I don't have the power to work on something but I don't enjoy other things either.

It might help getting drunk just one night to get energy to start something or even do something.
Also, have you tried to watch some tv shows? I usually get energy to do things from there.

I didn't have a good college experience either. My aid didn't come through for me though and I was too scared about taking out a loan. Plus I didn't have a place to stay. I was more or less a loner, I joined an anime club but they were a bunch of normies and didn't even ever watch anime ONCE! I attempted to hang out with them but never was brought into conversations. So I more less awkwardly sat by myself sipping on something to drink and snacking for the most part never talking. By the time the semester was close to being over I ended up quitting and just going back home as I didn't have any money to continue paying.

Wagecuckery is fucking bullshit.

Thank you for your thoughtful words, fellow betrayed anon.
This would be so much easier if her friend hadn't told me she still talks about me, you know? Now there's just this nagging thought in my mind that she might still come back.
It really isn't fair. Especially when I think about how no-strings-attached I'd made it for her. Perhaps she just realised that she didn't care for me that much after all when I started talking to her about my own issues.
I think I'll start saying 'she just doesn't care' out loud to myself when I fall in the nostalgia rut, maybe it'll help.

Most people have unfortunately adopted this silly idea that relationships *of EVERY kind - Friendship, intimate, work, romantic* have to do with "roles", rather than balance, and their advice, likely, unfortunately reflects that sort of "thinking."

I just happened to read the Wikipedia entry for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizoid_personality_disorder and to my surprise the lengthy description matches me almost 100%. So apparently I have "schizoid personality disorder," since some shrinks got together and decided that my type of person is a disorder. I've long known I'm "different," but I didn't think it had any formal classification. Should this really be considered a disorder? There are so many kinds of people in the world and it seems you could create whatever groups you wanted out of them. Not everyone can or should conform to what is normal and it shouldn't necessarily be considered a disorder, and SPD's alleged symptoms are all over the place for better and worse. The section on psychotherapy even sounds like brainwashing, like these people just need to be returned to "normal" despite the lack of compelling justifications for doing so. I think the average person today has bigger brain problems than I do.

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)

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.

I'm starting to get old into my early 30s now and I simply can't function in society. I'm trying to better myself at least mentally for the time being by seeing a psychologist. But of course it was given to me as an ultimatum in my current situation or be kicked out dealing with homelessness. I wish for once I'd feel a sense of true care from my family instead of being put off living with someone else who most of the time I feel as she hates me. If they would have truly been able to recognize my problems as a kid/teenager and even during my early adulthood. Maybe I could have went through the proper channels of help and be in at least a stable mindset. Possibly receiving NEETbux. I'm already being suspected of having ASD which I'm more than already certain is probably the reality of my situation. I have so many of the symptoms and traits which has been with me as far back as I can remotely remember. Personally I'm open to any comments or advice that someone has to give. I've been through a lot of trauma and comments like "man up" or something along those lines are literally impossible for me and I've heard them a million times.

>trauma

Anon, I am so sorry to hear about that. I feel very lucky that I've always been around people who were pretty traumatized themselves, and so we bonded very specially over that shared pain. If you'd be willing to share anything about it, I hope you will take the opportunity to do so here.

I'll start:

My relationship with women is very complicated, and the problems - as for many of us - start early on. My older sister was my best friend, and she died when I was six, leaving me alone in the apartment with my parents - an ex coke/crack-head alcoholic father, and a severely emotionally damaged and near-psychotic mother. For better or worse, they ignored me a lot, so I learned the value of learning to be alone. The problem was that my mother would frequently burst into my room while I was sleeping crying about her marraige or her lost daughter, and so I now always take the role of "therapist" and that has attracted very emotionally damaged women - like my mother - into my life.

One result of this is that as a sexually immature (not even masturbating yet) young teenager, I was molested by one of the said emotionally damaged older women, and let me tell you, in the moment I was terrified. I was so scared I couldn't move, and I felt filthy afterward. But I internalized it and thought that was just how relationships were supposed to be, and I went on to hurt an innocent woman myself no, not rape or anything, just sort of pretending to like her and being intimate for the wrong reasons, which really really hurt her feelings. I'd become what I hated, and again, let me tell you, it isn't as easy as it reads in the doujins - it feels fucking terrible, you question your own ability to feel love, think you're a filthy fucking abomination who destroys good things, attracts bad things, and deserves nothing but bad things, and frequently (again, people in my circle) become depressed and suicidal, because your ability to have relationships with women is fucking broken, but because you've gotten

It may not seem like a big deal at all, but it has haunted me for years. I know I am very fortunate in most other respects, but I do not think I will ever be happy and have a family, so I feel like I am still below the worth of the normalfags. I don't want to go outside and be with people. They hate me, and I hate them, because I hurt.

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.

I forgot all about this thread, here's an update if anyone is interested.
I've been taking 10mg of prozac daily since late June. After a month of that I went back to the doctor and she prescribed abilify in supplement to the prozac. I never went out and got any abilify (partly due to depression/anxiety and also due to my fears of all these meds). That doctor stopped working at that office and a month or so later I met with another doctor who recommended that I up my dose of prozac to 20mg daily. I said nah I think 10 is fine for now. Idk why I really said that, I havn't felt different at all since I started taking this shit. Not even any side effects or anything I feel pretty much exactly the same. I wasn't expecting a drastic change to my personality or anything but damn Is this all just a big meme?

I still feel like a big loser and I fucking hate myself and only leave the house to go to work or go see a movie like once a month.
The only real tangible difference I can identify is that I no longer despise my job or going to work long ass shifts. Idk if this is due to the drug or just me being there long enough that I've simple accepted it and learned to bear it.

Anyways I'm gonna try shrooms with a college who has said it helped him with his depression over the coming winter so hopefully that will help me out a bit.

Hello, my friends.

For a while now I have had the assumption that I, personally, perceive the state of "feeling touched / moved" as more extreme than other people, though I have no idea why that might be.
The best example for this is whenever my dear mom passionately tells me about things she has done, for instance crafting some decoration, how proud she is of the outcome and that she'd like to show me. I perceive this as really cute and am extremely moved every time, but this "aww"-feeling seems more like sadness than anything else and one time even caused me to have some sort of emotional breakdown. One where I was crying for 2 hours straight, and I didn't even know what for - I still don't, in fact. This can't be entirely normal, can it?

My mom is the person I love most in this world, so then why do I feel so sad at times where her happiness shines through the most? Does it subconsciously remind me that I won't have her around forever? Maybe it reminds me of times when I wasn't good to her and I feel more grief now whenever I see how nice of a person and thus how undeserving she was of bad things that happened in the past?

Maybe some anons here have had similar experiences - if so, please tell us! Or maybe all of this really is normal after all and this is just what feeling moved is all about.

No.436

It can be """normal""" if you are an introvert. Because introverts can be more intense with feelings when they are real.

Daydreaming imagining your mom dead and how you could've been a better person to your family or close friends and whatever, happens sometimes inside the mind of introverts, because they fantasize too much.

But if it's been occurring for a long time, all the time, it might be depression.

I was used to feel this way almost everyday, but it's getting better. Start to exercise, you can run, jump, ride a bike or something. I promise you're gonna feel better.

Seems like you are just a sensitive person – those who can experience deep sadness can also experience the mirrored deep happiness (awe, meaning, etc.). Crying for 2 hours may seem like a long time, but perhaps there was some unexpressed pain you had to let out.

I have cried at paintings, sunlight glinting on a body of water, a sunset seen from a plane, seeing people gathered and relaxed all together in one place. This is the gamut of human experience.

Every now and then, something strikes me for no conceivable reason. I feel a very physical sort of pain. Just the other night, I remembered how my mother used to say "ballie" instead of ball. That almost made me cry for the first time in I don't know how many years. I have no idea why, maybe I yearn for the innocence of days past. Another time is when I heard a quote from Jules Verne, about how two ship at sea, with no obstacles between them, will inevitably find each other. That seemed to strike me on some fundamental level. Once I just felt some primal urge that told me to run as fast as I can and never stop. It was so strong, and the knowledge that I couldn't do that made me feel like I was being torn in half. I don't know why the feeling comes in such strong waves, or what causes it. I don't know why it hurts, but it does. And, like I said, it's a literally physical kind of pain.
