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?

I think you should consult a doctor about the safety and legitimacy of that claim.

Does anyone like tarot?
I don't use them to try to foresee my future, but I like to appeal to the symbolism as a way to gain a different perspective on the present. I find the symbolism to be very deep and almost archetypal. Like old folk tales, different artists have made their own interpretations and representations of the cards over many years. Their true value and power has persisted through these various variations.
Two people just quit at my job right before the start of holiday season, and one of my tires went flat. But, drawing this card reminds me to stand tall and stay resilient, despite any past blows.

I don't mean to be rude but those things aren't effective future reading devices.
You know how some people have dreams about things that happen a few weeks later? That means that they're seeing the future. However, it's always very different, which means it's more like a rough prediction. It's like, "If everyone acts like we expect them to, it'll be like this," but since we have free will and often do unexpected things, it's slightly different in real life. Our free will keeps the future fluid. It's more like an estimate of our personalities, which are always changing. No method of future reading is effective since it just suggests what might happen.
Anyway, I believe it's a sin to even try predicting this stuff, so I stay away from it.


Plus, those dreams and these superstitions can be explained scientifically really easily. People just like these things because they like to be told what to do or told they're doing the right thing.


BTW this isnt op


I know.
And I know.

I just want to get into because it seems fun.

I do Tarot. Been doing so I was 15 and got a Rider Waite deck from my mom for birthday.

I also own a Crowley Thoth.

I can try to help answer questions if needed.

How many of you guys are hikkis? It is not something I am proud of personally, yet, it's only been about a month into my second relapse. Have any of you been through this, and have you any advice?

Why did you quit, man? It sounded like stuff was going great


i don't know, i became more and more miserable with each day. i couldn't stand to be around the customers any longer, i couldn't stand to be in the cold weather. in hind-sight, i should have just asked for a week off, to collect myself, and it would have been granted more than likely. however i was acting out of a fantasy in which i would just end my life if things got too bad. it's like i've learned nothing since the last time this has happened to me. all that can be done is continue foward


yeah, for the future time off can really heal burnout, but if you absolutely hated the job at its core it’s a bandaid. what was the nature of your work?


dude you should tell someone if youre acting out that fantasy
do you have any other jobs in mind?


it was retail. even from the beginning, it wasn't grounded in any sort of grand vision for my future. i always told people that I was working there because i 'have nothing else to do,' and i guess it was true. i don't have any other jobs in mind, i might look into trade school through a union/student loans. my last resort is to just join the military.

Anon, did you make resolutions for the new year? Goals you want to follow? Bad habits to get rid of, good habits to get used to? This is the thread for discussion and sharing experience.

Note: Resolutions are not unique to new years. This thread is about the discussion of every goal we try to achieve in this year. If you started a day or a month into 2020, no worries. We would still like to hear what you have to say.

Mine are:
>Reduce fast food, once in 4 weeks (last time I went on the 28th so I can't go sooner than the 25th this month)
>Greatly limit internet time to 2h (using the internet for work does not count)
>Start the day by reading
>No sodas or alcohol
>Drink 4 of water every day

Remember not to beat yourself up by saying things like "Everyone breaks their resolution." or "Same shit every year.". Attitudes like this keep one stuck in the mud. Getting rid of such negativity can be the first goal.
If you rebound, you haven't failed. Losing track of your goal is the only way to fail so keep going and mind your actions.

This thread was made in 2020 but counts for all years after too.

I'm sick and tired of not doing what I should do! For four years, I have wasted my time! No more, I say! This post, made on the 18th of January 2020 reminds me, KBH, that I am going to make my future, one painful day at a time! No matter how difficult the road is ahead, I have to look at the long-term goal. Only through my own effort will I succeed. It matters not what I am currently reaching for, or even what the result is, but I must continue taking on this attitude with me in the future! I can do this!

Go for it anon. Principles are what set you apart from the weak.

Remember that failure is not falling but staying on the ground. Strength is picking yourself up!

Sitting in class watching some kids eat edibles while the professor is literally none the wiser. I can't help myself from wondering how miserable of a person you need to be in order to do drugs in the middle of class. I feel bad for them, honestly.

Drugs are fun while they last, but they're really not good for you. Share your wacky experiences with them.

Thhis is bad thred btw

Every time I've done any drug things have always gone mildly shit to completely shit.

A perfect example is when I tried weed and got brain damage. The first fucking time I use it and I get damage that usually only happens to heavy long term users. Even the neurologist sounded like he thought I was lying about being a first time user. The high was the only one out of all the drugs I've tried that was good, but the aftermath made my life significantly worse. The symptoms have faded a bit thankfully, but they never went away. To this day I can't really see right.

LSD just made me feel like a severe schizophrenic, unable to keep a simple thought straight in my head constantly fighting off delusion. (Prescribed) amphetamines made me feel cold, antsy, angry, and made it impossible to eat. Benzos made me lose control of my emotions.

Even basic drugs everyone uses fuck me up somehow. Every time I drink alcohol it usually ends with me lying on the floor sobbing alternately cursing god and demanding to be smote. When I used caffeine pills to pull an all nighter I had panic attacks.

I guess you could say I have drug problems lol ;_;
Seriously though I am actually envious of miserable people who can at least enjoy drugs, as a miserable POS who can't.


I'd say I detest it, but honestly, there was a time when I yearned for drugs so I could make it through my day.
Damn, that kinda sucks actually. I guess it's good in the fact that it can help steer you away from this hell.

>I guess it's good in the fact that it can help steer you away from this hell.
Yeah, that is a silver lining. Sorry for complaining by the way, it's not all that bad. I just got a bit worked up since thinking about people who can get reliable enjoyment from stuff like that makes me feel doubly left out. Left out of most regular fun, and left out of even the last ditch effort of drugs. Though again sorry for making the thread about me and my issues.

To get back on topic, I did have one wacky experience. On LSD for no apparent reason I ate everything in the produce drawer of my fridge. Including a head of cabbage, a raw onion, and horseradish root. I wasn't even hungry at the time and I don't even like cabbage. So what was up with that? ┐(´∀`)┌


Man, dreamch is always so dead. Why the sudden burst of activity today morning?


It's alright, man. It sucks that you don't get to really experience a lot of the things that others get to, but I think that it's probably for the best. Pretty weird story though lol.

>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

>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.

there is a growing movement of people who are of the above opinions, related to trad psych. i am among them. many times, but not always, the treatment does more harm than good.

i personally am deeply opposed to almost all of the methods, approaches, and underlying beliefs about psychology and psychiatry.

can you tell us more about what you've been experiencing that could be considered noteworkthy?


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.
If you are (or anyone else is) still around and has any specific questions then feel free to ask away.


File: 1579117088125.jpg (251.66 KB, 977x1400, 1.jpg)

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.

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.

I've been last-minuting my university applications, and I don't know if I'm going to finish a good product. I know it's my own laziness that made this so terribly rushed, but I just feel really shitty right now. I suppose it won't be anything compared to when I get rejected.
And even then, I'm saying this because I want to be surprised by an acceptance. Why do I do this to myself? I just don't know anymore. Gotta keep it together over the next few days, they're really important. I guess I'm still clinging onto hope here.

See you all soon. Pray to God I look back on this with relief and not suicidal intent.


Change is possible, anon. Sometimes it takes only a little thing in the future to keep going, something to look forward to. I pray you find that thing that gets you out of bed and through the day.

>Pray to God I look back on this with relief and not suicidal intent.
I will pray for you too. I wish you the best in your endeavours.

Sometimes I can almost see clearly. I can drag my fingers along the contours of my mind and feel the hair-fine joinery that gives the illusion of a single unified whole. I can faintly feel the holes in my reason and thought. Pitfalls and traps laid down in language itself and even worse things lurking in the depths. All my assumptions suspect. Time and space and all other things I only understand through my diseased thoughts are lies. My emotions lead me along a path not of my own choosing. I can faintly feel my strings being pulled. I catch out of the corner of my eye the flashes of the puppeteers thread. Endlessly chasing after pleasures that never materialize, waxing nostalgic for times that were never good. Where do I even exist? Not in the past, not in the future, not in the present. What am I even? I'm nowhere, I'm nobody, I'm nothing. Still what is this hurt, this pain that seems to say I am, even if everything else is a lie? Why is this all I have? Why do I have to be like this? Is this all I am? I think that it is. I am nothing but a wind up toy or a broken puppet who's eyes have fallen inside. There is no real self here, nothing unchanging that is me and not someone or something else. Just a bundle of localized phenomena. It doesn't even matter, because there is no one for it to even matter to. Even so whatever I am I wish I could escape this fate. I want to scream out, to beg and cry for release from this prison. But there is no out, there is only as always and as ever this place. There is no escape from this nightmare that was never mine to begin with.

There is no escape from the prison because there is no prison. As you say, there is no self, just a bundle of localized phenomena. The Ego or the illusory feeling of "I" was cultivated over a long evolutionary period to help you survive. The Truth is too complicated in order to survive by utilizing what actually exists in reality. An occasion glimpse, though, is helpful - let the Ego become transparent, not dissolved.
Your emotions are not rational, no, but they are still a part of You. You must learn to listen to them and cooperate with them in order to realize your Body's full potential.
It does matter. Not just for the feeling of personal transcendence, but to be able to guide others to see the light as well.

I'm freezing cold, penniless, with no energy nor time, my life is a tornado of disappointment, and I have a painful health problem I've been neglecting for a month that is driving me crazy. But all that bothers me is that all the things I make for myself end up so sloppy I don't know why I even bother.
It's been hopeless and heavy for a few years now, but now it's getting physical too and it sucks so much worse.

9 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I don't have discipline unless I have stress and pressure. So if I was to guess for you anon its probably the same. Just give yourself something to stress over and a deadline to hit it.


I was just about to post this exact same topic.


This is really true. I think I was just born a POS garbage person and don't think I can change it. Like when I think about "people who exercise" or "organized people" and wish I was like them…it just seems impossible and well, I'm not *one of those people*. I'm a garbage person.

How do I stop believing this?


just know that you can change, but it will take a conscious, sometimes grueling, effort. force yourself to learn small habits. go for a walk every morning, or put things back where they belong. over time, these good habits will overtake your old, bad ones and be easier to stick to.


babies have been born and learned to walk and talk since I made this thread
and I'm still the same
Well I shouldn't say that, I guess I'm a bit better. Only a bit though…


Take the smallest easiest step you can imagine, and hold yourself to it, everyday. At one point for me it was just leaving the house.
It creates a feedback loop and things get better eventually.

Any of you guys are dealing with Hunchback posture and/or Forward head posture? It's so annoying, I'm also trying to deal with my weak chin.

Share your experiences, stories, tips, anything that help to get a better posture.


Can't say I do much to maintain a better posture, but every once in a while, something shows up on the internet that makes me sit up straight.


Same here. As I was looking at the picture, tried to fix my posture, and then read your post. lol
I do need to work on my posture, but my desk is a little awkward and small so I have to sit in an odd fashion at it.
My ribs actually are starting to hurt more than my back or anything else, also my chair isn't that great either. I need a replacement whenever I can scrounge up the money to get a new one.


When I'm out and about I just lean against a wall once in a while to remember how to stand straight.


I'm going to buy one of these posture corrector to see if it works, any advice?
