Idk the comfiest I've ever been but the comfiest I've been in recent memory happened just a few weeks ago.

I suffer from general anxiety and depression (who doesn't these days) as well as struggling with addiction. and was going through a seriously tough time resisting the urge to relapse and give in to my addiction. I was very close to giving up when somehow I stumbled across a picture that I took one day hanging out with a friend and a girl I had a crush on, it was a fun time and a good picture and we all looked so happy, and a very comfy warmth washed over me. Suddenly the urges to give in to my addiction had no power over me and I felt at peace and even joyful despite the cravings and all the shit I was going through at the time

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.

No. 483

Lately, some things that I've been working on and off of the past six months or so are about to come to an end. I don't know what I want to feel about said events. I do know that in the past when these have happened, I've done enough to satisfy myself with the results and even then, I always know I could have done better. I know it's a really small minded-thing to focus on this as a determinant of my worth, but I think the attitude leading up to it really reflect my worst traits.

I'm lazy, easily distracted, and not dedicated. I've had tons of time and even then I only half-ass it, and that's at the last second too. I tell myself, "Oh, I'm too tired to get anything done, so I'll go to bed." And in the morning, when I wake up, I look at the calendar and tell myself that I have so much time, that I don't need to worry about putting some time in for my own enjoyment because I have time to spare. With every time these events(or even any sort of time crunch passes me by) I am always reminded of what a weak minded, shitty and undeserving person that I am. I don't even deserve the place in life that I have right now. There are people who I know that work far harder than me and yet are still in a worse position. On the flip side, I know that I'll never be able to muster up the dedication to make myself truly great. I listen to how people say that they've put in so much dedication to one thing, and I get motivated for a few days and it just escapes me.

No. 484

>>483 (cont'd)
Another thing that really bothers me as well is that I could have put myself in a far better position had I really cared. If I were a better version of myself, more outgoing, more efficient and dedicated, I could easily and confidently say that I deserve this, and more. But I am not that person. I see it in others everyday and my family and friends comment about it, saying I hold X(a close friend) in such high regard that I look up to him in everything. And it's true. I do idolize him, even though he has flaws of his own, I can't seem to be even as half as dedicated or efficient as him. He makes it look easy.

My fears for the future are that I will eventually slip and my shortcomings will be revealed to everyone. Not that they haven't heard me talk about it, but rather they will understand that I truly do not deserve any praise or congratulations.

Today I saw an extremely beautiful, middle-aged woman with a very classy short bob haircut with bangs in the supermarket.
I don't really obsess over girls or women at all, but seeing someone wearing my favorite female hairstyle in public for the very first time made me feel very unique emotions and had my heart racing. She also had this serious and dedicated aura to her, just wanting to run her errands, making it impossible to get a glimpse of her personality, which I thought was cool as well.
I felt the strong urge to talk to her in some way, but I didn't, because I couldn't think of anything worthwhile to say and I also didn't want her to get the wrong idea.

So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.

The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.

I use Wikipedia as a search engine.
. Think of what you want to find.
… If you can't think of anything you can always have a "wiki-walk" until something piques your interest.
. Find a topic related to it on Wikipedia.
. Scroll to the bottom sections called external links, references or citations.
… Scan linked pages for anything interesting.
… A lot of the pages you find with this method will have even more links at the bottom of the page.

It's one of those days I can just *live*, in some taoistic sense.

What are some of your irrational fears, /sp/?

I used to have an intense phobia of clowns. It's been phased out many, many years ago, but it was absolutely brutal for a little while to even catch a glimpse of anything clown-related. My cousins had this dome covering for a ceiling light with an image of a cartoon clown and I couldn't even be in that room unless it was taken down.

I was just horribly spooked by clowns for whatever reason.

>he hated darwin because in his theory he said women appared after the man, and he believed women were superior to men

His brother was a thief and a junkie, and very well know on my twon, but my mother was friend of his mother, so he (the brother) decited to rob my house, I didn't blamed him (the guy), never even mentioned, but one day he said me this:

>I heard my brother rob some things on your house

>yeah.

I always got the feeling that this guy was kinda obssesed with me, I always was an anime fan and I used to play some videogames, and sometimes I would talk about it with my actual friends.

>he would watch it after school (or probably watch the important scenes) and come and say it was the best anime ever

>it didn't matter what it was I said I like it, he would started liking it too
>music, games, anime, books, it didn't matter

>>248 Part 4: Memorable mentions.

The strangest memory I have about him was one time I told him I didn't like violence and I considered myself a pacifist, I was lying down on a school bench with my backpack on my face, (I was trying to sleep), so only could hear him, and he got upset because what I said, and took one of my hand and starting scratching it wiht a small rock, I couldn't understand why he was doing it, but I endured the pain, and then he starting hit my arm with tree branch, and the he got scared because my hand was bleeding a bit, probably because I will report him?.

I wen't to the infirmary and they cleaned the wounds (they were small), I still have a little scar on my hand, I don't really mind it but I never understood why he did it, he even would lie about it, saying he didn't, he said another person came and started hitting me, so he stoped and bullshit like that.

>>249 Part 5: Ending.

Anyway, sorry for making such a long post, I had almost forgot about him and now that I remembered I felt like I had to get it out of my chest, if you're wondering what happened to my school life after that, it was ruined, I used to be considered 'the smart guy' and people would talk to me, some girls were interested on my actually, but after he started following me all my classmates stopped talking to me, some even said I was gay and he was my boyfriend, others started to hate me, girls won't even talk to me, etc.

After 2 years I decided to go to another school, never knew about him after that and thanks God for that.
Again, sorry I didn't expected to write such a long post.

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.

Hey, thanks for the kind words! I think your point about family is valid-a lot of my dreams(that I can remember anyways) involve my family. It feels really morbid and weird, but oftentimes in my dreams my family members will die/disappear but I don't react to that in any way at all. I have a decently good relationship with everyone in my close family but I admittedly have been going through some difficult times recently so maybe that stress is getting through into my dreams.

Has anyone here ever had sleep paralysis? I ask because I recently took up practicing lucid dreaming and I'm afraid of accidentally entering sleep paralysis.

Here.
The last year I had a lot sleep paralysis and I mean a lot, at least 1 for week. I had so much paralysis dreams that I got used.

Almost always the shadows on the roof turned into a shadow figure, probably a woman or something, like witch, i can't tell, always said things that I couldn't understand, at first I got really scared but within months I got so used that I really didn't feel scared or something anymore. Like: Oh! another paralysis dream.

I had a 'way' to exit from this dreams, I closed my eyes, as hard I can (on the dream), and I tried to not listen, moving is really hard when you are in this condition, but I got so used that somehow I could move, I mean, I felt like my body weigh ten times heavier, but I could hardly move.
So, I closed my eyes, with my hand I did the signal of holy cross and started to recite some common prayers (I'm catholic).
I'm not sure how, but this really help me to 'exit' of this kind of dreams.

Despite for being catholic I'm sure there is no demons or witches, I attribute these dreams to the stress and depression I was living at the time.

I also improved a bit my egirish

Once I had a very vivid dream where I fought a giant fox hand-to-hand in a church to protect my little sisters. When I woke up, I opened my eyes to see what appeared to be an old Japanese man staring me right in the face. I think he was floating directly above me. He was so close, I could have reached out and touched him. He disappeared and I jolted awake, the usual deal. Pretty fucking creepy.

Any one nice, sweet, kind, or just down right cute! Would your favorite anime girl make a good wife? What about a mother? What made you like her in the first place?

>I'm considering posting something lewd and rude.

Take it some where else, this thread is not for that kind of girl.

>This is a dumb thread, dumb subject, you're a homo

Before posting with this sentiment, take yourself to another thread. Or better yet, go nowhere, you're not likely to contribute anywhere anyways.

>Appreciating in innocence - Vs - the trap that is waifuism

It's no secret that waifuism is an idolatrous vice. If this thread tempts you to fall into it, stay strong, and head on to another thread on this board. On the other hand it's natural to think of ideals and traits you appreciate in a nice lady, so if you're comfortable here, and want to share, go ahead and post!

To start, Ritsu is my favorite cool anime girl. Her boisterous personality is at first off putting, but underneath it she's a sweet girl who wants some one to like her.

Hey all, I have a bit of unfortunate news.

In the past couple of hours, we received a heavy influx of spam on /dr/, /gf/, and /nos/.

The spam was in the order of ~300 posts, seemingly originating from Hispachan users.

I have been friendly with Hispachan since the inception of Dreamchan, so why this was done is a little baffling but these things just go with operating an imageboard.

The casualty in all this is while cleaning up the extensive, interwoven spam, all of the posts on /dr/ were deleted accidentally, along with accompanying images and thumbnails.

I was able to restore ~600 posts without images, so those are back up at this time (about half of the original amount)

After doing my best to fix this, I immediately tweaked how backups are performed and saved. Going forward we should not lose more than 2 days posts at a time (which given the speed of the site should be fine, I will adjust this as needed)

My sincerest apologies for those who had their posts removed, there were certainly some beautiful dreams and sentiments there.

I do know that you all will continue to have lovely dreams and aspirations, so I imagine we have a promising future of /dr/ content to look forward to. <3

Zeta,

If this is indeed you, then nice to meet you.

I understand, and as I've said, spam is just the reality of operating an image board. Even captcha or other flooding measures are only so effective, so it is part of the game.

The only reason I made this write-up was the regrettable casualty of posts, and I just want to make sure everyone knows what lead up to it.

I'm sorry that this is something you've had to deal with from your userbase as the site has gone on. I really have next to no knowledge of your site's culture so I will avoid further comment and refrain from giving any suggestions as to how you might deal with it :)

I wish you the best, feel free to come around any time.

Duck,

I wanted to thank you for making this site. I never knew I needed it until I found it. I've seen too many small chans die because of lack of activity, and it would pain me to see it happen to here as well. Please continue to admin it, no matter what happens. Don't get discouraged, and know that we all are rooting for you.

I've been noticing recurring locations in my dreams lately. Being able to recognize them has helped me go lucid a few times. I wonder if it's worth trying to map them out? Here's some of the more common/familiar ones.
>the neighborhood I grew up in the dead of night, but all the trees have glowing purple flowers on them. When I can lucid dream in this place, flying is very difficult. I always feel like I'm being pulled downwards by my ankles. It's like I can jump very high and drift around, but not actually fly. I'm sure you know the feeling.
>A wide, fast-moving river with cottonwoods on the banks. I always start at the same place, but there's always something new downstream. I also tend to lose lucidity as I drift downstream. I usually end up in a canoe. This location is rather unique in that I always remember how I physically traveled to it; either I was running through the forest when I came to a tributary, or I was going on a trip with my old boy scout troop, or something like that. The sky is usually bright, but overcast with stratus clouds.
>A two-lane road on the side of a mountain. On one side is the steep slope rising up, on the other side is a beautiful, wide green valley. The sun is always incredibly bright here and directly overhead. There's something very captivating and beautiful about the simple blueness of the sky, there's never a cloud. There's a little patch of grass on the side of the road with a big rock on it. I often park my car there and just lay down in the grass and just stare up at the sky. Once I got to see the sunset there, and it remains as one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Do you folks have recurring locations in your dreams? What are they like, do they mean anything?

I used to trade or sell my games once I was done with them, but as I got older I wanted to start keeping them and build some kind of collection (I have quite a lot of PS3 games now). I traded away many of my GameCube games and have bought some of them back and plan to buy all of them back eventually. I also got rid of almost all the PC games I had, but I'm not interested in collecting those anymore.

I used to think Steam was great, but I'm not as keen on digital media anymore, especially when my "ownership" of it is just a flag in some database that could be revoked at any moment.

Regrettably I have already sold Kirby: The Crystal Shards for N64, but do you have a SNES? If you still want Kirby's Dream Course for the SNES I'll mail to you if you live in America. You don't even have to pay me directly, just promise me on your honor that you'll donate $25 to either Bernie Sander or Andrew Yang via secure.actblue.com/‎
to fuck the corrupt capitalist 2 party system and then post your address somewhere and you'll get the game. Just so you know, it's a mini-golf game. (Kirby's Super Star and Kirby 3 are probably the best Kirby style platformers for the SNES, but I only have the first one.)

Alternatively, I'll mail you Kirby's Super Star if you donate $30 to one of those two Democratic candidates. (And I'll mail both of them for a $55 donation.) Shipping is free because the Ebay or Amazon conglomerates would charge me that much for commissions, and my total price is cheaper than what I've seen on ebay or Amazon. Fuck the capitalists, I want to make free college + universal healthcare or universal basic income happen. (Yes, I've become an ideologue who would rather spend my time screaming at Bernie Sander's enemies on, than to play video games. You can play these games, while politics will be my entertainment until Bernie Sanders wins, or dies trying.)

Eh nevermind, I think I should just sell them to be honest and volunteer for the Sanders campaign. Money isn't going to be enough to win the election.

The nostalgia for the 00's right after the next corner, lets talk about it.
I just saw Harry Potter while channel surfing, I know that HP and the whole fantasy wave will be a massive nostalgia blast in a couple of years.

I don't miss much of the culture and stuff but my 90's memories are a void and many important events for my life happen in the 00's
On a personal level I been missing the 00's because I miss teen me, the lifestyle I had back then and the friends I had.
Me and my friends were kind of hipster-nerds, we talked about weird movies, obscure music, strange comics and still keeping an intellectual air to it and there were many persons like that who fed that feeling/aesthetic.
I'm sad that a lost all of that and I became a run of the mill nerd, all other people like that peobably moved on and have jobs and families now.

Lets talk about what we were doing not so long ago.

As someone who grew up in the nineties and early two-thousands, what I really miss is how I used to feel rather than anything specific culturally.

The main part of it was my age, lack of responsibilities, better health, and naïveté.

Perhaps, this is true for a lot of us. It isn't the things themselves (since to be honest, they were mediocre at best), but the memories and feelings they evoke by association.

“Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.”

No. 361

SSRIs will fuck you. They are a scam. They don't help, but you become dependent on them and you have to keep spending money on them. They mess up your whole brain chemistry. Most drugs that actually help with depression are ignored because they end up classed as recreational. There are studies which show that psilocybin and ketamine are effective against depression. Psilocybin would probably be a better place to start, since ketamine can be habit forming so I'd recomend that if psilocybin doesn't help.

Could you provide a source on that? I did some searches for "anti-depressants/SSRIs permanent record", "anti-depressants/SSRIs used as evidence in court", and a few other permutations but I couldn't find anything that matched up with what you're saying.

No. 403

>>362
I'm not motivated enough to find a source, but whenever you hear the talking point that the mentally ill should not be allowed to have guns, that's because if you've been on medication in many states you will not be allowed to purchase them, as many anti-depressant medications are also explicit anti-psychotic medications.

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.

I saw a short interview with the actor who played Barney the Dinosaur the other day. I know it sounds ridiculous but I can't stop thinking about it. Here's a guy with probably one of the shittiest jobs I can imagine and he's just radiating happiness while talking about it. Imagine being in that giant suit, having to dance around for hours probably to kiddie music, the studio lights beaming down on you, you can barely see anything and you're sweating like crazy. But this guy has nothing but positive things about the experience, in fact he says he "loved" being Barney. Most people who do costume work only do it to move up to something better but this guy played Barney for TEN YEARS. He even loves the annoying "I love you" song that Barney sings which he's probably had to listen to thousands of times over the years.

I can't stop thinking about how positive and happy this guy is. I'm such a aggressive, pessimistic, stressed-out person. If I had a job like that, I would probably complain about it all the time. I wish I could be like him and see it as nothing but pure joy. I want whatever he has. In the video, he mentions that he studies Tantra and regularly did meditation. Do you think that's the key to becoming calm and content like he is? Or is that just who he is as a person?

No. 459

Some people simply live their façade of normalcy. Like, for whatever reason they can't even entertain negative thoughts. A job requiring constant positivity would just reinforce this behavior with the added spur of financial gain.

Saccharine shit like singing the same happy song over and over again just helps them feel validated within their delusions of everything being perfect. It's an interesting psychological survival strategy but it leaves you unaware of your own issues until you crash into them headfirst.
