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 can't wait for university to start again.
Got good memories from there?

>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.

No. 564

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.

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.

My dreams repeat, not over nights but within themselves with slight changes. I also tend to feel a strong sense of deja vu the second time around so I'm aware in some sense (I feel deja vus very often in day to day life)

Like I'll experience a scene with my parents, talking or similiar, something else happens and then I somehow go back into talking with my parents again.
Sometimes it seems that I'm aware of it and I noticed more than once that my dream self said something along the lines of "I wanna see that again" or "I need to repeat that". Like studying.

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.

It's kind of odd, but your six sentences seem to have helped me along more than my friends' similar advice… Thank you anon, I hope you have a good week. And that the next person who wins your heart deserves it more.

No. 209

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." This idea of reciprocity is something I had to learn the hard way, and I am glad you got some use out of what came of it - make sure to pay it forward.

I've done this to my own friends. Friends I cared deeply about. For one reason or another I couldn't handle talking to them so I avoided them for a while, felt guilty, and let it fester. It's a horrible thing to do.

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 starting off with an obvious one for me. Mitchell Tratchenberg from Harriet the Spy. She was also in The Adventures of Pete and Pete she's been in a lot of other stuff too. I remember watching Harriet the Spy a lot on my VCR. I can quote the hell out that movie. Harriet was a really cool character and I've always loved writing and ninja stuff and spy stuff so I connected with her character a ton.

Debby Ryan, a.k.a. Bailey from The Suite Life on Deck.

I was obsessed with her. There was a bad few days when I genuinely yearned for her, and toyed with the idea of training to be a child actor just so I could have the chance to meet her on the set of some Disney Channel programme. This would have involved, by the way, moving my entire life abroad to the US. My mother even noticed my pains and managed to get me to admit my crush to her. It passed pretty quickly tbh but I remember it quite clearly.

I only watched Breakfast Club recently but I found her quite attractive, too. She reminds me of Lain, lol. Then at the end of the film they cleaned up her hair and put make-up on her and she actually looked worse than before.

I feel like the 3 minutes and change for a track and then on to a brand new song can get a bit jarring and distracting sometimes

I know Pink Floyd and King Crimson are good bands for that, and I like X Japan's 'Art of Life' and Dire Straits 'Telegraph Road' as other examples of longer songs I like

Subject says it all!

I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).

Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.

I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.

>they were looking at each other, smiling, talking

>was convinced they knew me from somewhere but I didn't know them
>tried to avoid them, kept walking
>they didn't let me
>he cut my throat using the knife

Dream 2:
>a woman came to visit me
>she was one of the people who I had seen in the building
>helped me find the person who had killed me in the previous dream
>found and killed the person
>back home, at night
>next to the front door, there was one of the cops
>this time in normal clothes
>shouted, "are you happy now? do you like what you've done?" and laughed
>I ran to a room on the other site of the house

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.)

(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.

Dear Livejournal,

For a long time we would go over to my Mother's mother's house for Christmas Eve, have dinner and open a few presents. This was mainly in my earlier childhood up until around the 5th or 6th grade.

After that we had Christmas Eve dinner at our own house. We would always get up to open presents at around 4 am and eat Hillshire sausage, crackers and cheese until around 8 then we would get ready to go to my dad's parents house and have Christmas lunch/dinner.

We did the latter until my grandfather died then we tried one more year but my grandmother couldn't do it anymore after that. The subsequent years we would have smaller get togethers at her house but she gradually lost her memory and now she's in a nursing home.

While I was in school we would always do "special" things too once the holiday started. One year we went to a Christmas light show, then another particularly memorable year we went to a planetarium and they had something about Christmas and Jesus. It was actually really good though.

We would almost always eat at the Outback after whatever we did.

Once my grandfather died my dad lost a lot of drive to do anything and ever since then my Christmases have been a depressing, horrible mess. This year was no doubt the worst.

I was very lucky to have a functional and good childhood. My family has gone to shit now and have been that way for a 5-6 years. We had to foreclose the house I grew up on and now we rent a little shithole in the sticks with no central heating. Parents don't work, sister lives here with her kids, barely a pot to piss in and I just know they aren't going to have the great Christmases I did.

That makes me sad. We'll never have as much money as we did growing up and their dad is a worthless shithead alcoholic who won't child support.

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.

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.

No. 561

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
>hurr muh dik
you don't fit in with the wizards, and you don't fit in with the chads. You are an outcast, unfit, unwanted, and in-between groups. 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.

This is a step that really needs to be figured out, but I've made a couple of first moves such as making an appointment to see a psychologist to deal with a lot of mental health problems and coping mechanisms to get me through this. Also I plan on starting to put more effort into myself and those around me. My girlfriend has been there for me for so long now and I need to in return be there for her. I have to stop worrying so much about other people in the community that doesn't like me and truly let go of my past. It's not going to be an easy road but it's one that I must take. Even if I have to take "baby steps" along the way in order to better myself just a little bit each and every day.

- check for affordable apartments daily
- eat more fruit/veggies, stop relying on carbs and shitty meat alternatives and make everything from scratch
- start a skin routine and get some things professionally done because I'll feel good
- take up yoga, meditation and painting

>What have you done so far to succeed?

I've done a few interviews for jobs and I've inquired about a few apartments. I've applied for a visa in another country which hopefully will help me achieve independence and give me some work experience. This weekend I'm going to get some skincare products that I've researched and I'm excited about that. I've totally eliminated fast food from my diet (I used to get a takeaway every Friday) and I don't even think it looks good anymore and I've gotten into an intermittent fasting routine. A few months ago, I bought a painting set and I've done a few paintings that someone I respect said were good. I've been taking probiotics and vitamins. I didn't actually think I was making progress but typing all of that out makes me really proud of what I've done so far.

>What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?

I'm getting a lot of rejection from companies, probably because I don't have enough work experience but every job listing requires some, it would be great if someone just took a chance on me and gave me that start I desperately need. I want to take classes for the hobbies I mentioned above but they're expensive and I can't until I start earning money. There are free classes on now and again but I get really embarrassed about my weight and it's really holding me back form things I think I'd love. I'm really hard on myself when it comes to not immediately being good at something like a new language or programming something. I'm finding it hard to break bad habits I have and I guess I have no motivation to break them either. I normally accuse myself of being lazy but in reality I think I'm just depressed. When I start earning, I'm going to start seeing a therapist again too. It's just all one big chain that I have to figure out where to break from.

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.

Can you recommend me some fruits and vegetables that actually fill you up to the point of feeling satisfied. That's my biggest problem with my diet, they won't feel me up, and then I'll end up snacking or eating another meal entirely on top of it.

No. 525

I'm trying, but it's getting harder. Usually I don't eat anything for about 12 hours after the breakfast and when the night comes I tend to eat everything I see. In the last month I lost about 3kg.

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.
