I had a killer headache today, no idea why. I feel better but still a bit lightheaded. sob.

Anonymous 15619

I couldn't concentrate on anything today. Felt so badly the urge to binge, but I really don't have anything in my house that is suitable for it, and I didn't really think to have a list of distractions ready for when I feel like this.

Anonymous 15620

That sucks and I'm sorry you went through that shit, been there so many times. At least let's be glad you didn't binge!

Anonymous 15621

I didn't binge, but I did still have small bites of more food than I should have been between meal times. But it was sad since those aren't my usual binging foods so it was just a rotation of un"satisfying" alternatives. I don't feel as shitty as after binging, but I don't feel great about the grazing either.

I try to be mean or post bait constantly because in reality I am miserable and don't enjoy anything anymore. I am a complete fuck up and loser. I refresh the homepage of crystal cafe all day and read every new post several times. I have no friends. I keep going to the store and coming close to buying something to hang myself in the closet with. There isn't a point in my life where I've felt everything was fine except when I felt like I had close friends. I walked to the store and bought a slice of cake to have on my birthday and ended up crying my eyes out while eating it in my little cave and then cried myself to sleep after.

I miss my mom and my sister and all of my friends. I wish I had never been born. I'm so fucking ugly.

Sorry for the massive wall of text but I need to get this off my chest.

Me and my bf have been together for years, its been a very hard and long road for us but we stuck by eachother thick and thin. We both have had our share of problems with immaturity, emotional issues, unrealistic expectations etc but despite all of that we are still together. We where both eachothers first in everything and its been one big long learning experience for us both with many borderline breakups. But despite everything we are still together. I know he genuinely loves me and cares for me as a human being but the issue is I just don't think we are compatible when it comes to the very root of our personalities.

For years I ignored it because he was all I had, my only ray of light in this awful depressing world. He took me from the deepest darkest depths of my miserable existence and made my life feel like its worth living just by offering his love and not much else. At the time its all I needed to keep my going, to be genuinely wanted by someone was enough. But I now I often find myself thinking if this will truly work out in the end.

We plan on getting married and by plan I mean Ive been pushing the idea on him for years and he at first was totally against it due to his family being one big dysfunctional mess but has slowly warmed up to the idea. But I have so many doubts now, every day in my head I'm thinking of what it would be like to be with someone that shares my interests and tries to actively work for my affection.

I'm always the one being positive, always the one trying to keep him optimistic, always asking him how he feels and generally just trying to offer him all I possibly can. Anything we do is because I suggested we do it, not because he wants us to do it. Sex is the biggest issue, for years ive been the one who initiates it every single time. He has a big dick and I always get off but I do absolutely all the work every single time while he just lies there enjoying it as I indulge him in every single one of his fetishes. Sometimes rarely he does not feel tired enough to put in some work too and its nice but so so rare.

I want kids and I want a family but he is entirely against the idea. He always feels so distant and uncaring but I know its just how it comes off from the outside and that he genuinely cares on the inside but it never stops me from having these thoughts of "what if I find someone that actively works for my affection every day like I do for him?".

I'm scared that if I end this relationship I will never get into another one again and I will never find someone that understands me like he does. He is very very stubborn and absolutely will not change in any way so "talk to him about this" is out of the question. He even told me to find someone else if I don't agree with how he is naturally so I've learned to simply accept him with all his flaws but I'm just getting so tired by now I don't know what to do.

That sounds awful, especially the fact that if you try to talk to him about anything he just shuts you out. It doesn't sound like he values you at all if his thought process is that he'd rather lose you than do a small thing so you can feel comfortable and more happy in the relationship. It's kind of a meme, but I think the 5 love languages are legit. Everyone has things that make them feel loved, and if these things aren't fulfilled it can make them feel pretty shitty. He probably isn't doing any of those.

I feel like my boyfriend can be unsettlingly distant at times, but he is depressed. I wonder if your boyfriend is the same? It sounds like he has no passion at all. Is that towards life in general or just you?

I guess all the fucked up 2D pornography and vile behavior and personalities I've been exposed to, sought, and involved in online put me in a pretty awkward spot in terms of real life. On one hand I feel like coming so close with human ugliness allowed me to better acknowledge and work on my own deficits, as well as understand other people's reasons for their poor behavior, on the other it feels utterly impossible to "connect" with someone that didn't go through something similar. I don't want to call myself enlightened and others normie, but there undeniable is something that changes inside you after witnessing some of the worse stuff the internet has the offer.
At this point the only partner I can imagine in my life is somebody thoroughly mentally degenerated, but nonetheless on a level of "philosophical intelligence" (I'm not sure why I don't want to write wisdom but oh well) that allows them to view the world in a non-warped/biased way, i.e. no extremist thinking, no absolutes, acknowledging the respectable and unrespectable in everything

Anonymous 15687

I know what you mean. I fell into this trap a long time ago, where I've convinced myself that I could never have a true connection with someone unless they're also "internet damaged" and "internet wise". Which is hilarious because normies are much more likely to be kind and understanding people. But I tell myself they couldn't understand me as they should unless they grew up combing through the same/similar giant vats of internet garbage that shaped me in small (maybe larger than I care to admit) ways.

I'm repulsive to women. I just want a close friendship with another girl, and today I've started looking at Mfc models just so I can see another person my age smiling and laughing.

I'd want to die if people saw my posts here. Sometimes I am mean for the sake of it. I always feel so inferior to everyone in real life, it gives me a twinge of relief when I give a mean reply but I immediately regret it. In reality, I'm always stupider than the person I think I'm showing up.

I always feel like people my age think I'm an idiot but I think that's because it's what I tend to jump to as well. People my age, if they were with me, it's more competitive. I would hate to want to be superior and fail, so I'd rather just know I'm definitively lesser from the start. That's why I prefer being with older people. I know I'm definitely the dumb one and they treat me like it, too.

I'm stupid for wanting to switch majors. I should continue science because that's just pure studying. I'm so pathetic I have executive functioning issues, but it's worse for me to believe I have worthwhile or compelling arguments to deliver to other people. They're pretentious ideas, anyway. I don't even understand them, I have just fallen into the trap of believing I do.

I just am such a failure. Even as a fuck hole I suck because I have vaginismus and endo, and my genes shouldn't be passed on. I feel so lame for being called hot by men and ugly by women. Interesting by men, stupid by women. I feel like my fate is to stay in this weird man bubble that I perpetually want out of. I'm not attracted to them, another failure on my part. If I were, maybe this would be easier to accept.

I'm okay with being alone, but being scorned is what gets me.

Anonymous 15692

I want to say it's not a matter of being unable to find someone kind and understanding enough to "tolerate" the marks the internet left on my personality - in fact, I actually look upon the influence it had on me in a pretty loving way; I'm genuinely happy with the way I am - what I'm craving instead these days is just someone I can give bonding beyond the internet a try with I guess. It's funny, thinking this through I realize just how far I've come hiding my favorite part of myself from people in real life, and literally this moment I realized that this is probably what people mean with finding someone that "accepts you."

Damn, when it comes down to it I just want somebody who likes me as I am, wild.

Anonymous 15700

I think you can be fucked up without being a "bad" (i.e. petty, spiteful, cynical) person, and I think it's safe to say that that kind will become more in the future. Perhaps I'm giving bad advice here and it really would be for the best to draw a line and start anew, but I don't know, that sounds like something that'll backfire down the line to me; something something you can take the anon out of 4chan, but not the 4chan out of anon. Then again, what's the lesser evil, solitude or a feeling of disconnection?

I made my husband cry lately.

I was just chilling in bed at the evning, winding down after a day just as stressful as most of them. Suddenly he gave me shit about a "picture from the chans" I had opened. It actually was from reddit, a meme I found amusing. He then went over to berating me how I do mainly amusing things on my PC and how this was concerning.

At this point I decided I would not take that sort of bullshit this time, he had cut me off from too much I had liked in my life, and now he gives me bullshit because I like to read some funny things in the evening instead of engaging in ClAsSy EnTeRtAiNmEnT like bullshit movies he watches all the time or so, I have no fucking idea. He tried following me around the house and prevented me from going places and actually wanted to make a big deal out of this fucking thing, so I started roasting him like there was no tomorrow while silently waiting that he would just go fuck himself. Eventually he started crying because I was cold as ice and didn't care for him and because he's always the ass of all jokes blah blah blah. Sorry man, the past year or so where you made me cry about bullshit issues on a weekly basis made me not quite as emotional towards your complaints.

This is all very concerning and controlling behaviour. Nobody should control how you spend your free time or what you do on the internet. The fact that he was looking at your screen long enough to find something to argue over would be enough to piss me off. The crying doesn't sound genuine.

Has he even made an apology for his disgusting behaviour? It seems like you also have more unresolved problems from the past year. If he doesn't tell you what he did wrong, understand why it hurt you and apologise then show him the fucking door.

One of those nights when i just want to end it all, and i cannot even seek confort on my friends because i'm always a mere second thought to them, if that, and i cannot talk with my family about it, so i'm left alone, hugging my cat while feeling empty inside and thinking just how pleasant it would be to not have any mental illness, to have no problems, to not feel hurt, to just not exist.
I'm so lonely. I wish i was someone's first thought, i wish i had someone that considered my feelings and let me talk about them and cared about what i was saying.
But i'm left bottling it up until it explodes in nights like this and the urge to die gets unbearable.

I don't know anymore.

i was going to end it all tonight too once everyone goes to sleep. I've believed in false hope and held out for the last time, it's so pointless. I don't know why I ever bothered posting here or listening to any of the obvious lies I have been fed. I am a defective creature with no right to exist. I can't exist like this another day and can only hope to be reincarnated as something not perpetually looked at in disgust or to never be conscious and experiencing again. I am finished thinking life could ever be any different

maybe you should tell your family unless you are afraid of consequences that would only make matters worse. Maybe you could text a suicide hotline, and so long as you don't talk about being in immediate danger they're actually pretty good at listening and caring. You could post here what's bugging you

>lol wut did you even read what I said??

I'm pretty hurt and upset not because she said she couldn't but because she knew how desperate I was and didn't respond anyway and when she finally did she just said she couldn't, cold as fuck.

I asked someone else to do it for me and hopefully that will work, but she made me lose an entire week waiting for her answer. I was there for her when she really needed someone and she knows it. I sent her some msgs saying I am hurt because of the way she treated me and I think she might have blocked me now… Rip. It hurts but at the same time I'm kinda laughing at how ridiculous this is. I'm tired of doing everything I can for my "friends" just to have them let me down.
I never get mad and I tend to be very passive, so maybe she was surprised to see me be so honest and tell her how I felt. I don't mind she said no, I've already asked someone else, so even a half assed "sorry I got sidetracked and forgot! ):" would have been enough tbh.

He dumped me, kept me on a emotional leash for a while and when he finally got a job again he blocked me off of social media and never bothered to contact me again.
I hate him but I still want him back. But I know he's a slimy piece of shit who only cares about how much he can sneak around and get some from others without providing back.
I won't have anybody treat me like a princess again, even if he pretended to love me.

So me and my friend/s are in this “group” with this one girl, let’s call her X. X likes to act all innocent and harmless but in reality she is a two faced cunt who enjoys victimizing herself and loves the attention. She will throw you under the bus and lie about you or your friends just so she can look good to others, when in reality she is the biggest snake of them all, acting nice to you in your face and turning around and trying to drag you through the mud. Sometimes one of us would have a good idea and then she would act (in front of others) like it was hers. She used to complain before about not getting a bigger part in our group, but to be honest it was because we didn’t trust her completely (as a comparison that most people will know on this board, she is like a lite version of cvnka). I think the worst part is that we never did anything wrong to her (we even kept her in the group till the end of the “project” because we fell sorry for her) and yet she has the balls to talk disgusting, untruthful shit about us? Shameful.

I've been thinking about my future because: (i) I might fail a course which might render me degree-less (ii) if I don't fail, I don't know what to do with my life (iii) if I fail, I don't know what I'd do.

So, as a heuristic, suppose I pass this term and move onto the new term. My German prof told our class about an English assistanship at a German highschool that I'm interested in, but unsure of. I would like to apply for it, but these things are holding me back:
(a) my horrible German (okay, not horrible, but I still hesitate when I say simple phrases) (b)the pay is not great and I have hefty, but flexible, student loans and (c) I don't want to feel lonely in a place where I don't know anyone and speak the language at an elementary level.

You were close enough to consider yourselves friends, but you managed to never in the time you knew them you hurt them?
I support you more than them since rumors are bullshit and there's no justifying it with "they deserved it," but DO NOT burn this story into your memory as "I was an angel and everyone else tortured me for absolutely no reason" - no matter how much it hurts, keep the truth in view.

Sounds like a case of judging yourself for your intentions and others by their actions. Example: You may sacrifice something that "should" be dear to you (on a social norm kind of level), but isn't truly (just because you don't roll that way) and expect others to be considerate, because to them it does appear like something valuable - but karma doesn't work that way. What matters is whether you were genuine or not.
Shame the only advice I can give you is "Well actually it really is your fault"

On one hand this might make me feel better, on the other hand I have been enjoying my sobriety and was happy moving to this place where it's still illegal, having no connections or stores nearby made there be no temptation.

Update to my own post, he texted me today after about 3 months of playing Danny Phantom.
Claiming he made "about 30" friend requests on discord to me and assumed that I didn't want to talk to him and that he hopes I'll reply back soon.
Only thing is I never got one, let alone 30 (?!) requests from him.
He blocked me a long time ago, and I don't texting him because I know he has a limited phone plan.
I'm hesistent to talk to him because of our crazy past, how he persued me at a time when it wasn't legal for him and all types of shitty drama after that. Being around him makes me manic as fuck.
I crave affection and support so badly though. I know he can't give me it and I'll get chewed up and spit out.
I'm almost hoping his text was directed to someome else, I'm sick of being heartbroken by him.

Anonymous 15921

>Hey that band on your shirt… is pretty mediocre, you should get your taste checkeddddd haha loser
If someone said this to me, I'd cry. This is why I never, ever wear band t-shirts or anything showing my music taste. I also refuse to play the music I like for groups of people and for anyone other than my 1 friend and sister. I'm so scarred by how music taste gets equated to intelligence or taste, it's illogical, but I felt like such a piece of shit as a kid and that feeling has not left me as an adult.

Thanks anon, I appreciate it x hoarders really are the worst. I'd feel sorry for them if it wasn't for the fact that they have really bad attitudes.

Initially, she used to clean the house because she was worried about my opinion. Now she doesn't give a shit and she's even admitted it. She used to contain it in certain rooms (mostly her bedroom). I once accidentally saw inside and there were clothes and junk up to the ceiling. It was like something out of a tv show, I've literally never seen anything like it. I guess at some point she started using the bed to pile shit onto because now she can't even sleep in her bedroom, she sleeps on the sofa in the living room. After a while things were less formal and I'd just spend most of the time in my bf's room so she took that as an excuse to let the entire downstairs area go. Every surface (counter tops, a sofa, the dining table, chairs) in the kitchen is covered in junk (idk what else to call it, it's the most random shit like boxes and toys and trinkets). Things like frying pans, cutlery, mugs, chopping boards go missing regularly and without them it's impossible to cook. She won't clean the inside of the microwave or the fridge and when things break, she never replaces them. I'm pretty sure I've seen things that expired years ago in the cupboard. Or at least that's how I remember the kitchen because I eventually refused to go in there years ago.

The bathroom is shared. It's covered in cobwebs (she likes spiders and won't put them outside, ew) and most of the things in there are broken and she refuses to get them fixed (the bathroom and sink taps need replaced and the toilet seat isn't fixed on, it's just sitting on the toilet). She uses the bath for everything including washing clothes (I assume she can't get into the room that has a washing machine), the other day I saw her scrubbing her hiking boots in it and apparently it was once the home of ducklings at one point. The worst part is that she hoards animals, like most hoarders. Name an animal and I can guarantee she's probably had it at some stage. It's mostly chickens but it's both hens and roosters so they breed quite regularly. She's also recently started collecting these huge ducks that sometimes nip my heels. The living room is home to two free-roaming canaries and two free-roaming rabbits. The result of all of this is a lot of shit. I mean a lot. The canaries fly around the room shitting down the walls and on the furniture and the rabbits hop around the floor leaving a trail of shit behind them. It's possible to get those animals to go to the bathroom in a specific place but she's too lazy to train them (also I'm not angry at the animals themselves, it's not their fault and they're actually cute). She collects animals thinking it makes her look interesting and quirky but has no actual desire to care for them. She comes home with new animals all the time that she really, really does not need. The garden is totally destroyed by the chickens who scratch to reach the soil so there's no grass and it's absolutely covered in their shit. Sometimes they get into her car (I have literally no idea how, just close the doors?) and she finds it hilarious. I don't find it hilarious because the car has shit embedded into the car seats. There's chicken and rabbit feed in the house and it stinks, it's the first thing you smell. It's fucking so unhygienic and I can't believe someone is okay living like that.

By the way, her car is full of even more junk like a mobile hoarder's collection (half eaten food, mugs of tea, leaflets and letters, clothes, boxes, CDS…). Sometimes she gives people lifts and she just shoves all of it to one side and expects people to squish in. She'll always pass it off as if it's a rare occurrence "Haha just clearing out the house!" or something but in reality her car always looks like that. I guess the thing that sent me over the edge today was that I went somewhere with my boyfriend and when I looked down at my nice white trainers, there was some chicken shit on them. I spent ages in the bathroom cleaning them and obsessively washing my hands and there's still a fucking green stain on them. I'm so angry about it.

My bf has tried to help and has his own ways of coping. Firstly, he wants to move out within the next few years and I think it's pretty obvious that it's going to get worse when he's gone. I think his fear is that she'll live like this for the rest of her life and probably injure herself tripping over something one day. He tirelessly cleans the bathroom and kitchen (btw his room is immaculate) but she manages to mess them up again within days of him doing that. So it's a really exhausting, never-ending task and it's not fair on him. He cleans up after the animals and takes better care of them than she does. He regularly buys them medication out of his own pocket (his mom would prefer they just die from illnesses) and brings them for regular vet visits (rabbits need annual shots which they wouldn't have gotten if it weren't for my bf). The worst part is her attitude because she doesn't even appreciate it when he cleans their shared spaces. She comes home to find everything clean and tells him off for touching her precious junk. She also tells him off for caring for the animals and calls him too "sensitive" when he brings them to the vet (????). He trained the animals to go to the bathroom in the one spot and she just didn't keep it up which is just lazy. He's desperately trying to put the house in order and make her change her ways before he leaves because he's such a good person. He genuinely cares about the people around him and she hasn't given me any indication that she cares about or appreciates him? He avoids the kitchen as much as possible and sometimes he doesn't eat dinner. I seriously worried about him for a long time but thankfully he gets one good meal at work now, at very least. He genuinely gets depressed just being in the house. He's trying to save money so he can move out and he's having to spend it on repairs in the house, buying cleaning products that she won't purchase herself, vet visits (keep in mind that most of these animals would be considered "exotic" and couldn't go to a normal vet), new electronics that the rabbits nibble the wires of, an entire new set of kitchen utensils, visits to the laundrette, eating out to avoid the kitchen etc etc etc

Anyway, if anyone made it this far RIP lol. I just wanted to vent because it's not really my problem to deal with, it's theirs so there's nothing really I can do about it. But for now I still have to deal with it while I visit my bf so it does still affect me. I even feel bad about posting this but I've been holding it in for so long, it's just so infuriating.

With playing things for groups you shouldn't really be playing your personal taste though unless it is something really conventional. All I listen to is vocaloid and male idolshit, I recognize that 99% of the population is going to hate what I listen to so I don't bring it up and always use headphones.

Anonymous 15929

I'm so sorry anon.. I fucking hate hoarders. I have to deal with pretty much the same shit as your bf and the challenge of not being able to use the kitchen without heavy cleaning and potentially huge arguments over nothing can make it hard to keep on weight. Depending on the severity and how long it's been of course, he should know there may be no fixing her. At least not unless she wants to be fixed, or a large group of people forcefully take care of the problem (last time I attempted this the cops were suddenly called over a one dollar, split open pack of rusty beads from hobby lobby being thrown away). After the afore-mentioned coupe attempt she acted like she had a miscarriage, wandering the house screaming or moaning and crying over misc. junk and lots of literal trash that she remembers and realizes she doesn't have anymore. She acted like this off and on for many months and holds grudges still. She showed more concern for a swiffer mop that was in the yard half burried in dirt for years (the nicest thing we threw away) than I have ever seen her show concern for me in my life. It costs $12 new, believe me as someone who knows her, she had never used it, never was going to use it, and how nice was it really after having been treated the way it was for years? Do you really love that thing so much if that's where you leave it? Yet she hated my brother for being the one who threw it away (I was, he let her blame him) and wanted nothing to do with him for half a year, openly declared she hated him, etc. If your bf truly is spending about what it would take to rent somewhere on fixing issues that crop up at home, then he should probably get out. I get that he's probably used to it enough to deal with it though, and of course like you said, he wants to fix her. I spent over a decade trying to "fix" my mom with the most perfectly constructed dialogue and lessons about what she could do to stop the house from getting worse, what she could do to improve it, both general and my personal methodology for how I do things when I clean, or organize, or throw away trash, or whatever. I'd talk about mood stuff or abstract stuff to appeal to all the "it's not my fault, it's my brain, or mood, or zen state, or limited free time (no lol), and once whichever one of those is resolved, I will open my eyes and find that I cleaned half my house". Well anyway me trying to fix her didn't work and neither did therapy either btw). She pretended to listen and care for many years but now she has no shame and won't listen to much until she's screaming. What I've learned is that although she cares how the house is (if she could snap her fingers and have it cleaned and organized she would), she doesn't actually care enough to do any of the work or see the junk as junk, etc. Her standards for how she lives are super low and while you'd think shame or empathy would kick in a reaction to clean shared areas,, someone who normally refuses to clean is only going to do that for so long if they do it at all. You can't ruin your life for family like this, these are the family members you just talk on the phone with or see at family gatherings twice a year, mother or not. I know that sounds harsh but the odds are that one day he will see this himself, the question is does he want to see it now or after 20 years of living two blocks away and regularly cleaning up after that lady who used to be his mom.

Oh damn anon you were in such a similar situation. I think it started around 7 or 8 years ago actually but she seems to be getting worse, not better so I'm not really hopeful. I think he tried to drag her to therapy but his family are militant Christians so they're under the impression that going to church is the same as going to a trained professional, unfortunately. I feel so bad for him having to grow up in that environment. The screaming and "not having enough time" sounds so familiar (haha but they have enough time to mess things up which ngl looks like it takes way more effort than just keeping a room looking good?). He would have been gone years ago if it weren't for the bad housing/renting climate my country has atm. I don't think he's spending that much but it is annoying when I see him taking care of her hoard of animals for her (he's too kind to see them suffer) or when he tells me he's bought something new like a hairdryer because the last one was sucked into a pile of junk (lol I told him to keep things like that to himself and pretend he doesn't have them). Yeah it's funny how they actually do seem to care/feel shame but…not enough I guess. She doesn't invite anyone to the house (my bf and his dad would the odd time but there's always a huge clean-up beforehand and she has to be told well in advance or she'll freak out, I wish she'd realise that the clean-up would be intimately easier if she just did it 15 minutes daily instead of all at once a few times a year). She gets paranoid when anyone comes to the door like delivery men or neighbours. Like how is that any way to live? My bf missed out on having parties as a child, you can't have anything delivered to the house, you have to make the taxi driver let you out early and walk home?? Anyway, you're dead right about limiting contact. We don't choose our family members. People who say "family is everything" have never had to deal with something like this, clearly.

That's probably the only solution.

Yeah I agree tbh. I guess the warning sign would be someone who doesn't want you to see their home or certain parts of it. You'd think that'd be obvious but people have clever excuses ready. Haha her room legit looks like something from a TLC show, that was my first thought.

Thanks anon. I do feel better now.

A ghost from the past is bothering me a lot lately because of a growing suspicion she is present on CC. I really, really hope it's paranoia and not true but I know she was all sorts of active on lolcow.

The hunch that certain posts are hers is making the memory of her bother me a lot more than usual. I have so many things I should have said but didn't. I've never been the same ever since what went down, she probably has no idea how badly my feelings were hurt by her because of how silent and chill of a facade I put up. Then one day I boiled over and was breaking down and left later that week(or maybe it was 2 weeks), the biggest weight was lifted off my shoulders that had felt so agonizing for so long.

There's the obvious "why didn't you tell her" regret, but I never did because I never felt like I had the right to. It's way out of my comfort zone to express that I am hurt by someone distancing themselves the way she did. I can take a hint, I'm not sure I can stay in contact with that hint and act like it doesn't hurt me. I've had that happen enough in life to adjust fine but somehow she wounded me in such a way that it was worse pain than ever before or ever will be again. No one else on earth is going to cause me to write a 10,000+ word essay on a giant tangled knot of frustration, pain, and platonic heartbreak.

I will leave CC if I do explicitly find out she posts here. For now I hope it is just a delusion created by 5 separate uncanny posts and my still unresolved attachment to her. But this delusion has been bringing up feelings I thought I was over.

Anonymous 16007

probably just delusion. you should reach out and get closure because maybe they think you left them. clearly the not knowing is hurting you more than the period at the end of the statement and close of the chapter.

Well it's not like it's their "fault" that they lack strength of will. For me it's more of pitying them, but I try not to think of them as inferior all across the board.

Most girls do this.

Reading books or learning new things, maybe less so. Also stoic philosophy was a giant meme around summer of 2016 and Marcus Aurelius was getting linked a lot. Funny because a part of stoicism is not sitting and being disgusted at the people who exist in pitiful impulsive form, for all their flaws, but to accept them as that.

>as someone who has battled eating disorders, troubled family & depression & even trauma, i have no sympathy for these people.

You can't really compare problems to problems. Some might have "troubled family" and trauma that dwarf yours, others who had less on their plate than you.

You don't have to feel sympathy for anyone and you don't have to associate with people you don't want to. You're not close minded but you might have an inflated sense of achievement, a false sense of how bad you had it/how difficult your struggles were, and a big ego that actually thrives on this fact that other people are pitiful do-nothing sacks of misery.

Also it's a normal feeling. Winners don't associate with losers usually. Nice not-so-humble humblebrag venting btw

Even with math, public schooling is all about rote memorization rather than building problem solving skills and critical thinking.
Women usually have superior memory skills which is why they excel at things like language.
You are probably just unpractised in problem solving.
If this truly matters to you, turn your weakness into a strength and spend all your free time practising rather than engaging in passive entertainment, chatting, etc.
Affirm to yourself "this is fun and easy, I just don't have enough experience at the moment" when you experience difficulty.
A good book for learning how to solve problems is "How to Solve It" by George Polya. Make it a hobby to go through logical and mathematical puzzle books.
If you devote yourself to it, I am sure you will get there. Good luck!

Every now and then I remember how my ex bf of 6 years cried on the phone and even got his mom involved when he found out I had moved on for good. He kept sobbing and crying to me saying he still believed we would be together in the future, made his mom call me to ask if I was with someone new (because he thought he was entitled to know even though we didn't talk anymore at all) and to complain her son was drinking too much because of how sad he was that I was over him ablooblobloo (as if that was my fault lady, your son was into booze way before we broke up! ). He also texted my sibling who didn't want anything to do with him for days to ask stuff about my relationship and cry on their shoulder just to sulk even more when my sibling called him out on being an idiot during our time together.

So yeah whenever I remember that I feel sad and ask myself if I should have acted differently when he talked to me on that particular day. I never regretted breaking up for good, I know it was the right decision, but it's sad how much time I/we invested in that relationship. I'm not going to he say he was always bad, he was wonderful during certain times but all in all his bad > good.
Long greentext of his shit incoming:

>Had a huge victim complex but pointed fingers at his family saying they had victim complexes too, when he was the only with a victim complex

>Acted like a "imma tough brahhh im a sex machine beast" in front of his male friends… cringe
>Immature despite being a fucking 30 year old
>Liked fighting over small things and admitted that he'd start shit with me just because he was bored
>Texted me when i was abroad and asked me to stop everything i was doing and do a cartwheel in front of a monument and tell my sibling to take a picture. i said no and he got legit pissed… lolwut. that was right before i broke up with him
>Kept spending money on shit even though he knew we had to save (i.e tried to buy an expensive e-cig to vape even though he didn't even smoke and was told by the salesman he shouldn't spend money on it…lmao)
>Got herpes from a literal prostitute (or maybe a girl he was seeing) when we broke up, he doesn't know who gave it to him
>Described in detail how he fucked prostitutes when we were apart just to hurt me and to seem ~~desirable~~ (because he wasn't paying to get them to fuck him amirite?) since I found a new bf at the time
>Overly jealous to the point we couldn't have a rational conversation because he didn't listen to anything, jealous of my female friends
>Always talking about "GOD GOD GOD GOD! CHRISTIANS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE" while simultaneously not doing anything christian in his life, or praying, giving a shit about Jesus. AKA fake christian.
>Made fun of me when I told him I had my doubts about god's existence and when I told him I'd start calling myself agnostic from now on, said I was only doing that because "atheists are cool now"
>Had a hateboner for atheists and would go on and on for hours about how NO ONE CAN BE AN ATHEIST, EVERYONE SECRELTLY BELIEVES IN GOD
>would let his dog take a shit in his mouth if it tried, he was a huge dognutter and ignored his other pet which he was supposed to still take care of

I googled an old classmate of mine who I was friends with, he's attending an Ivy league college, already has a lot of personal projects, 2 years of an internship he started in high school, and in addition he is a great artist and musician. While I'm happy he's doing so well for himself, it makes me disappointed in myself for not really trying to do anything in high school, all I did was play video games and watch anime instead of anything useful.

Isn't it strange that whenever someone mentions "cure", it instantly triggers doubt?
This word is so taboo that anyone who uses it is denounced as a "quack" by pharmaceutical funded medical industry.
I speculate that this is because these wonder drugs can't cure anything, rather they only suppress symptoms.
So whatever does cure anything would naturally threaten their multi billion dollar monopoly on healthcare.
I provided a citation already with my suggestion to read books by Sherry A. Rogers.
There are plenty of citations from mainstream medical journals as well as many independent studies from reputable universities in her books. So rather than ask me to waste my time citing stuff from them read them yourself.

Really, how does this somehow invalidate her knowledge or medical expertise?
She was on a tour speaking about issues surrounding health which kept her from being in her office.
This is the "professional misconduct" and "gross negligence" they are talking about.
You don't even read the document and you are like "hah debunked, yep, just as I thought another quack".
All this does is prove your close-mindedness and eagerness to deny anything which doesn't match your worldview.

>She was on a tour speaking about issues surrounding health which kept her from being in her office.

Doesn't excuse a doctor from performing their job, so that is negligence which has negative consequences for their license to practice. Also I wouldn't want to take advice from a doctor that can't fulfill their professional duties when they're too busy peddling pseudoscience.

"Cures" are not that simple, most of the time it advocates for holistic approaches to lifestyle, which I don't disagree with, but it's not a substitute for qualified medical advice. Bad doctors exist.

Being lazy is ok as long as it’s not stopping you from working towards your goals and values, like work, friendship, etc etc

Have you considered using a productivity app or anything like that? They’re super helpful once you find one that works. I use Habitica which is based on an RPG game. You get gold and xp for completing irl tasks and lose health for failing to do tasks or doing bad habits. P good!

Anonymous 16463

Habitica didn't work for a severe procrastinator like me.
Though progress tracking helps everyone.
I would recommend removing yourself from all vidya, entertainment, internet (make sure you are monitored when you do use it), cellphone for a couple months and starting with a simple check list.
Write items on the list at the beginning of every day and force yourself to complete every single item by the end of the day.
This is only good so long as you aren't working towards larger goals and projects with many steps.

People say that if you cringe at your old self it means you're growing, but what happens in my case is that I remember random things from 5+ years ago at random times, for example now when I should be sleeping. I'm not even doing this intentionally, the thoughts are just an annoyance.

I don't know what to do in life and it leads me to just refreshing image boards or playing games all day. The only things I would be interested wouldn't sustain me, and while I can get a STEM degree and make big bucks I am not passionate enough to pursue that.

but when you die of a heroin addiction, or alcoholism, or whatever pervasive addiction you have, nobody feels guilty. everything thinks you deserved it. which is better than making my family or friends think there's something they could have done to save me.

So, I'll admit it the only song I actually know from Pink Floyd is The Wall, and I liked that particular song a lot when I was young. I have a vintage pink floyd dark side of the moon t-shirt that I think was a hand me down from my parents and one day some hippie-lookin 30 yo guy (I was 17 at the time) smoking a cigarette walks up to me and asks what the first song on the album was and me, somewhat confused, just looks at the guy, and he immediately went on a tirade about how the answer was "Speak To Me" I shouldn't wear the shirt and he even threatened to punch me in the face. I was scared and embarrassed and probably 10 other emotions. First thing I did when I got home was to look up Dark Side of the Moon on youtube. Speak To Me is a minute long track of a drum, noises, and hard to hear voice samples. That's when I decided I really don't care what music elitists think.

It feels like i am just randomly drifting through life without any actual goal or path to take. I just got on the first uni that came to mind, i am studying the simplest field i could think off, i got the first job that i found on the job site. All the people around me have their goals, their dreams and they are working hard to achieve them and i have insane abilities, there is no point in bragging among internet strangers so just take my word for it, i could be a high ranking politician, a neurologist or a space engineer if i wanted, but i just don't want anything. I was raised to be a lazy piece of shit and that's exactly what i am. The only reason why i am still "progressing" is basically just inertia and even though everyone says i am doing great i honestly have no idea what i am doing. I feel so lost.
The only thoughts that calm me down from the anxiety are thoughts of suicide. I keep thinking and visualizing slitting my throat or running a bullet through my brain daily. It's the only thing that makes me feel secure.

Recently i had a dangerous operation and i should be doing a lot of things to keep my health up, but i still keep smoking, eating unhealthy shit and not doing sports because i just don't really care. I didn't really invest anything in this life.

Not really looking for advice, there is nothing you could tell me that i haven't heard already anyway, just venting. I guess it will get better in time, or I'll just keep floating like this until i die.

The fact that you couldn't comprehend something so simple and tried to attack/discredit a valid point with "stop le immature boys drool girls rule stuff!!1" nonsense makes me think you might either be a woman with very poor oversight, or a male attempting some kind of weak manipulation.

I agree. I've posted some personal things in the past that were met with aggression and put me off posting for quite a few months. But then I thought, why should I give them the power to ruin this? If I give up and stop posting, they've won. If we keep reporting posts that are suspect, then it'll become closer to the place we want it to be. We can't keep them from visiting here but maybe if we just kept silently reporting them and not engaging, they'd be forced to read our posts and maybe that would humanise us a little in their minds (doubtful because they're men but you can't blame me for trying to be hopeful).

Just spam the place with girly things. Talk about your experiences as a woman but don't go into detail if you're afraid of being recognised. Back up other women when they do the same. Make them feel as uncomfortable here as they make us feel on 4chan and I'm sure they won't hang around long. Report all the "uwu I love men" posts.

In reality…I don't want to deal with people asking me how I'm doing when I'm doing terrible in life. I'm a 4th year and I have no idea what major to switch to. I'm only taking 2 classes this semester and I may fail 1 of them. My boss doesn't like me at work and has said I "faked" my interview because I'm nothing like the person I said I'd be there (I got my job over 3 years ago). I hate myself for not being independent from my parents yet. I am miserable because I've caved into my parents' demands regarding my lifestyle. I'm a piece of shit.

I can't deal with food when I know everyone will ask why I don't want to eat, like they do every year.

I can't deal with my sister who only talks to me during the week about bizarre sexual subjects involving me or to vent about her shit bf. I feel like she has completely abandoned me since becoming a mother. She has forbidden to me talk to her bf even though I don't have his number or any contact information and only talk to him out of politeness when she's right there with him, even though he bothers the shit out of me. I know if I go upstairs to see the rest of my family he'll say hi and my sister will hate me for answering.

I graduated university last spring. In my last two semesters I was practically dating a guy who I was in love with. He would do everything involving dating, except be official. Sometimes he'd get phone calls that he'd refuse to answer and seem very stressed out. I'm an idiot but not that much of one, so I assumed he was talking to some girl from his hometown. However his social media came up clean. I put it out of mind. On new years we went out together but he left me just before midnight. Other rude things happened too, over a few months. So I just froze emotionally and cut him off just before we ever had sex.
I was right. Except it was not just any girl he was hiding. Shes a Miss ___ state pagent winner and pretty much leagues above me in everything. Thousands of followers. I dont think I could even name 10 acquaintances. I stopped Instagram stalking her but last I checked they were still together. I've thought about telling her, but I haven't. I don't know if I should. It seems like too much time has passed. And she may just assume I'm some crazy bitch lying, or maybe I'm being ridiculous considering him a cheater if he never actually put his dick in me.
It all feels bittersweet. This was my first experience with any sort of relationship, too.

Do you think he was within your league or were you going for a guy who was very clearly at the top of the social heirarchy?

In a way, this reads the same as an incel getting upset because the girl he thought he was "dating" was actually dating a quarterback the whole time, which is probably why the other anons are getting snarky at you. Don't beat yourself up too much over it; learn from this and move on.

Yesterday I stared at my computer screen so much my head was hurting but also I was staring at light text on a black background and today I am staring at black text on a white background, and I feel much better, I think the color scheme actually makes a difference.

Why do you want explicitly a male friend? If you're looking for someone with masculine point of view, then maybe you should shape your expectations to be more realistic. Male friend is going to be, believe or not, a man. That doesn't mean he's going to be a sexist dirtbag, but he's going to be masculine which means he's going to be more or less rough around the edges.

I also hated working. I didn't mind my job usually, being a hostess or cashier wasn't very straining on my 18-21 year old body but work culture is absolute hell. I was kind of quiet and attracted a lot of misogyny and everyone thought I was weird and they had to either avoid me or treat me like shit.

I've only experienced this on imageboards, I haven't met very many gay men or women outside of work though so I'm not disputing it either.

My personal gripe with the "gay best friend" meme is that my handful of experiences with gay men have been that they only talk about themselves in this weird way. Like permanent attention seeking mode as if others didn't exist, just "me me me me me me me me" out of them. Of course others can be like that too. It made no sense that anyone was even interested in being their faghags just to be permanently giving them lip service and enable their self obsessive one sided conversation.

There's probably normal ones out there. Personally I don't believe in guy friends.

Shut-in who dropped out in their first year here.

I don't know whether I should go back to college or get a job. Degrees still hold significant leverage in my country. I can't pay for tuition without a scholarship or a miracle and am worried about being mentally stable enough to complete a four-year degree despite being stabler now. I also miss interacting with people my age.

My true passion lie in an industry where it's impossible to survive in without a good network or experience with expensive equipment, so college would help a ton. The smart thing would be to work a few years. save up, and then enter uni. But the cutthroat nature of the field means I could also struggle with entering it at an older age. I recently did a few internships in the same sector and was taken advantage of because of inexperience. Long hours for paltry pay–24-hour workdays are the norm, and my first paid gig was around $15 for the whole day. While I could work on the few connections I made there I can't expect to pay the bills through that alone without specialization or a degree.

Another option is to give up on that and work in something unrelated yet profitable, which would be more feasible and a wiser investment. I just won't be happy. There's a lot of jobs available for my skillset though. I don't have anything that I'm as invested in as my passion above. Other people who can pursue their dreams without these worries have wealth and health. I wish I were on the same level as them.

I'm another variant "this chick." Was suicidal as well. Don't know her situation or if she's in recovery, but maybe this'll help in understanding her more. In my case even if I was in the process of getting better I felt ashamed for being such a clusterfuck and burdening everyone with my shit. It was easier to shut people out rather than to be honest with myself and ask for help.

A few people from that period still send messages. I'm grateful that they care, and I do feel the same way about them. Yet I don't reply or get into contact because a part of me irrationally believes that I'll disappoint them again, or that they'd be happier without me. I'm scared of explaining myself and receiving a response similar to that of a former friend. She hurt me to a point where I had anxiety attacks whenever her name was brought up.

Sometimes I run into an old face who hasn't seen me in years. I try to engage in conversation but find myself putting some distance or being vague. It doesn't seem right to open up and be real since they've been removed from my life from so long that there's a dissonance from who I was then to the person I am today. Maybe your friend felt similarly.

I think it would help to message her with what you said: you like her a lot, but won't contact her and give some space. If you're up for a reconnection, you could also say that she's free to talk to you when she's ready. Some people need time. To an extent you do too, to ease the pain from ghosting.

Yep. Cinematography specifically. Everyone I've asked in the industry says college is necessary for a hands-on experience. I've researched and found some textbooks, but it can only get me so far without a decent camera, which would cost almost as much as a year in college, and a portfolio, which requires making films with others.

I'm really sorry to hear that.

It's still slow, but crystal.cafe is actually getting more traffic each month. Please give it some time. Our mods are very active, most moderation is invisible (post deletion of maleposters instead of leaving them there with a ban message), spam and raids are quickly dealt with. A lot of reports are very subjective. Imageboards attract a variety of opinions, many of them controversial, so a lot of users who get reported because they "sound male" have a genuine looking post history and just happen to have some opinions other users disagree with.
Sometimes both sides of a fight report each other as male. We've had cases of users being reported for maleposting who are established members of the community who are active in the Discord server and voicechats and have proven themselves to be female. It's a difficult subject.

It's unfortunate, but there's no surefire way to determine an anonymous poster's gender. Please be assured that we look into every single report and ban users we suspect to be male with the caveat that they may email us and prove that they're female if they wish to be unbanned. We're still working on finding the best way to avoid common ruses like voice changers, as we don't want to ask for identifying information. We're holding a chatroom soon to discuss the future of crystal.cafe: >>>/meta/1875

I already vented about this on lolcow, but was completely ignored (again), so I hope that maybe somebody here has advice for me:

Today I stepped on the scale for the first time in over two and a half years and I weigh 200 pounds.
I really don't know what I should do. I feel so anxious and sad all the time, food is my only stress relief. I will write my final exam in february and even with eating constantly I feel like I won't make it.

I've been sick for 6 weeks now, it feels like my body is completely shutting down because I'm mentally so unwell. Even the smallest things irritate me so much that I feel like I'm going crazy. I can't (and also don't want) to sleep. I would need to study so badly, but instead only procrastinate. Today I had no classes and yet again didn't do anything. My blog and my family are the only social interaction I have.

I only have two friends. I broke my phone and messaged one of them on facebook, but neither did she give me her number, nor did she answer. Then I asked if there's a reason she doesn't text back and now she only wrote sorry, I didn't know, here's my number. I don't even know how to respond to that.

Yesterday was my little sister's birthday and I barely could contain myself from starting to cry, because of how frustrated I felt. I hate that she hugs and kisses me to say goodnight, I don't want to get touched. I hate myself for being the way I am, for being so lazy, but also get angry at others if they disturb me during my rare moments of productivity - even though I know that it's not their fault. I constantly feel like screaming, stomping or hitting something, but I never do. I just rub my face hard. Feels like I'm a small kid throwing a tantrum.
Around a week ago was the first time I felt suicidal again after a long time. I don't want to kill myself, just think what if… Because it's so incredibly difficult and hopeless right now.

My Uni offers free counseling and I even mustered up the courage to go there 3 times already - but that ass of a psychologist is never there. Without notifiying anybody of his absence. One time not even the lady whose office was next to his knew that he was on holiday. Great.
Because of that I instead bought 2 books, one for more self confidence and one for depression, but I don't even find the time to read those.

Anonymous 17295

Hurt to read this, anon, since I was basically in the same place as you emotionally a year and a half ago; same struggle with destructive rage, food, social isolation, and even the same weight. The only difference was that I wasn't even in school so was just useless at the time (lol).
Sadly there's no real advice to give that will be an easy cure all, the person suffering has to pull themselves out of it and keep pulling themselves forever. I'm sorry the stupid psych is never there since talking to someone is definitely a good, healthy step. Are you close with parents at all? Enough to talk to them about it? Or your sister, how old is she?
It might be a hard thing to do with shit motivation, but I do recommend exercise big time. I started lifting regularly in fall 2017 and it made a difference in my mental clarity and helped me sleep. It's worth a try and would help with weight maintenance even if you aren't ready to diet yet.

Anonymous 17296

I can't offer you help with your uni problems but I can offer advice on your eating habits and weight. A couple years ago I found out that after a long depressive phase and comfort eating I was at my heighest weight, 209lbs. I felt like utter shit! With this said, focus on your weight first because it involves your health too. I know it's hard for people like us who eat when they're anxious, but if you take care of this issue now everything else in your life will be easier to solve because your body will be functioning better and you will be feeling better with yourself. I did that by calorie counting (not the easiest when you're anxious but you can start by avoiding non-complex carbs for example, it will make a difference) and lost a considerable amount of weight and managed to get my shit together in many personal aspects.
I know it's wayyyyyyy easier said than done though, I've gained some of the weight back after getting depressed again and I'm trying to get back on track now after 2 years. You can do it, you just need to take the first steps. Maybe start reading the books you got? I mean, they're already there, just pick one of them up!!
Best of luck to you, we can do it.

My grandmother was recently diagnosed with cancer. For a while I felt better knowing that she lived into her 80s and up until now she was incredibly healthy. I was doing some Christmas shopping today and the city is full of little elderly ladies and I was choking back tears the whole time. I visited all the shops she likes to browse and passed all the coffee shops/restaurants we've been too. Every shop I passed reminded me of something we bought together or something silly I pointed out to her. Back when I was still in college, I'd sometimes bump into her on the train and I got so emotional knowing that I'll never get to do that anymore. She mentioned that there was a trip she wanted to do one last time but she won't get a chance to because she's too ill. It's made me think about my other grandmother and my dog who both passed away last year. I've been trying to stay strong for my family this whole time but it's all coming out now.

My boyfriend broke up with me. I was very calm during it, collected my things and left, but as I booked my flight back home it hit me hard. Things were going so well, he was planning things out to do next year together, we were getting along so well… Then I got a little annoyed at something inconsiderate he did and he snapped, he threatened to hurt himself because I make him feel awful about himself. Then I told him that he couldn't manipulate me like that, he got even angrier and said we were done… He has threatened to hurt and kill himself many times, he has been suffering from depression the last year. I should have been more sympathetic, but when we argue and he blames me for everything it sets me off. I am always there to listen and support him. Not everything is about you, I have feelings too. I'm not a stone.

He didn't kick me out but I left out of my own accord. I just wish we could have worked on things more. It makes me very sad because deep down I know he's a good person. I'm waiting for him to apologize, to reach out to me to work on things again… I already forgive him because I still love him and care about him. But he has to make the first step. I'm not going to come back like I did before. If he decides he'll be happier without me, then I'll let him go. That's a part of loving someone, too.

And asked where could he find a girl 'like me' (keep in mind we've only been talking for a few hours) and started to go on about there not being any purpose in life if you don't have children and god, did I start to feel uncomfortable.
He literally asked if I was feeling uncomfortable or disinterested, and then out of nowhere comes a "She couldn't be disinterested! I'm such an interesting guy" and it was literally something out of a nice guy cringe compilation and Kill Bill alarms were ringing in my head I swear. So disappointing.

Those arbitrary graders can be won over by being their pet or having them take a personal liking to you. This could backfire if they noticed but it's the only way to beat true whimsical grading.

>Well, actually in my experience most people fail to be even slightly interested in others. It's very weird.

It used to feel so hecking frustrating. But now whatever, I don't even care to share myself anymore unless asked. If all that's happening is asking questions/focusing on them without a return of interest or any real connection blossoming, then this person has become a chore and is not worth speaking to.

I really want to talk to my world of warcraft guildmates on discord's voice chat, but:
1) I'm paranoid I'll make things awkward or they'll start treating me differently if they find out I'm a girl (I play a male character)
2) even if the above weren't an issue I'm too much of a socially crippled, weirdly-insecure-about-my-voice mess to speak
every day I join the channel and hear all those voices chatting among each other and even though I can only type in response it's the closest thing to regular social interaction I get, it's very pleasant to listen to and I wish I could join in and I imagine all the things I'd say in response if I could
sometimes I swap out my comfy no-mic headphones for the cheap old headset and decide "this'll be the day I overcome my fears and learn to talk to people", but of course I never actually do it and go back to the headphones soon enough
I'll forever be that one weirdo who's never spoken or truly gotten close to anyone

I relate so much, especially the part about telling yourself this is the day
What helped me was talking to complete strangers on the internet whose opinion I didn't have to worry about, like in games where you're constantly matched with new people, or in random big steam group voice chats

>I'm paranoid I'll make things awkward or they'll start treating me differently if they find out I'm a girl (I play a male character)

At first I was going to say that worry is justified, but I guess that's just my lack of context speaking. Just remember that even if you do keep waiting, there's no need to worry about it making matters worse - nothing wrong with being genuine and telling them that the reason you didn't mention you were a girl was because you felt awkward about it after all this time.

Luckily they kept me but I’ve gone from full time to 6 hours a week and I’m absolutely gutted.

I've an exam on the 11th that I have no idea what I'm doing. To give you guys an idea: I failed the exam with a 25% or so. I know. The assignments I'm scraping by. I can definitely pass the final exam, but I don't think I'll pass the overall course. I blame this 70% on my lack of motivation and shitty human being, and 30% factors I could not control.

However, I went to my prof and talked with him this morning, explained my situation to him, and he basically said that if I get 70+ on the final, he would be willing to come up with an alternate marking scheme for me.

I know I can (maybe??) get a 70+ but I'll have to bust my ass. Not so much venting but more so I CAN DO IT!! (I THINK

I hate the situation my life is in right now and I've been trying to change it since summer. Over time I grew accustomed to the shitty enviroment I want to get out of and it's so hard to get back up and keep working hard to get out of here. My strength to overcome adversities and problems was almost at the top (I've never worked this hard before for antyhing) but now that more problems and exams are coming up my strength has diminished considerably. I want to come back better this time but it's so hard to find solutions for things when I'm so overwhelmed by all the things I need to do in order to pass and be independent and self-reliant. I will find a way but my feelings right now are a crutch. Right now I'm switching between working hard and looking for gratification someplace else like Youtube. Sorry about my weird english, it's obviously not my first language. I just don't have anyone to vent to about this without being a burden.

It's actually infuriating how bad some people are at texting/messaging online. I always end up being the one who has to uncomfortably carry the conversation, always. Like, put in the effort and /at least/ ask me some questions back, or anything! It's not that difficult, but you know what is difficult? Having to awkwardly bring up different topics while you give unimpressive, short replies - despite the fact that you initiate every. single. conversation.

This is why I don't text you first anymore. Either get the message, or actually learn how to talk to people.

I woke up after 16 hours of sleep wanting a hug and some headpats later to find out that there was no reason for me to wake up because the guy I was to meet today decided to take a trip to fucking Kazakhstan and when I called him just now he was at the airport.
Who in their right mind decides to go to Kazakhstan on short notice?
Did he just not care to inform me?
Did I get bamboozled by Sacha Cohen or some other elaborate horseshit of that nature.
Worse things are a) I'm supposed to be cutting down on my imageboard usage (but as it turns out have nowhere to vent otherwise at this hour) and b) I roped a coworker into this, so she too had to wake up stupid early and waste gas to meet up with me so we could go consult this ice cream van across America dunkass.

i fucked up, i talked to him again after all
i confronted him about him hacking my stuff, he lied at first but then admited later he wanted to talk again since the last time we did it was under weird circumstances.
i humor him, tell him what ive been up to. he seemed kind of jealous and didnt really say what was he doing despite wanting to know.
i asked him what were his real intentions with talking to me. i dont want to waste my precious time with a grown man child after all.
he said he wanted to talk again because he knows i have no friends, so itd be good for the both of us. he isnt looking to get back together despite how much i changed from before.
i found his intentions harmful and rude, hes assumed even after telling him i made friends and what progress ive made with my social disorder. its like he thinks i cant survive without him, that i need his precious dick juice to survive and be able to be social.
hes probably just projecting onto me but it was painful to hear that. i just blocked him and now im sobbing here late in the morning being sad about how i'll never be married and loved by anyone ever. i was so so so close but in the end, no matter how much you change and wait, nothing is worth it.
i have no remorse for the things ive done to him, and the things i will do to him.

Thank God it was in our language and that her friend group didn't understand but I'm pretty sure my friend understood somewhat of what has been said. I feel so embarrassed and have been thinking about it ever since it happened.
It was a cup of custard and a slice of pizza. You know I'm not a confident person, you've known me for years, our mothers are friends since college. You've always made snarky comments to me since we were kids, I literally can't tell when you're joking or not.

Anonymous 17680

If she's being snarky and mean, then she must be jealous of something about you, and is trying to find a "fault" in you so that she can feel better.

Otherwise, it could be that, you didn't have a lot of food, and she was being sarcastic (i.e. you don't eat a lot).

I feel like it's likely the former, since you seem to know she was being mean. Sometimes it's hard to accept your early childhood friends turned out to be assholes who would throw you under the bus for any kind of advancement, but just because you've known her forever doesn't mean you have to stick with her. Try get new friends, I know it can be hard but try find people around whom you'll feel comfortable. I wish you luck, don't let it get to you because it doesn't matter what you eat, it's no one's business but yours.

Right, I am also not overweight and it's pretty nice. Whether an overweight person wants to lose weight or not is up to them though, it's not our business. Not even a health-at-all-sizes or big is beautiful position taker, it's just what does it even matter?

Good on your friend, but that one man alone has probably negatively affected multiple lives with his behavior. Bullying into self improvement hardly ever happens, bullying into meekness and a low self esteem self-hate loop that keeps fat people fat and shy people shy is more likely.

I just have a lot going on right now in general. My parents are getting divorced (which I support), but the process is not the smoothest, and based on what I've read and heard, their split is one of the complicated ones. That's my most pressing issue, but I find my "boy troubles" to be easier to focus on. I'm 18, about to graduate, and still haven't kissed a guy (or girl). I technically had a boyfriend between middle and high school, but we never went beyond holding hands.
I ended up developing a crush on a guy friend my sophomore year, but it never was significant until midway through junior year. I knew from the start that it would never happen, and I've been trying to get over hm but I still want to be his friend. At one point, we were seeing movies with each other almost every weekend because nobody else would be available or didn't want to see the weird movies we watched. And what I loved most was how we would talk forever about the movies after we watched them. I like talking about both lore and the actual production, and he did too. We would text for hours too. He would text me in the middle of the day when I was working my summer job, or in the middle of the night, and our conversations would end when one of us fell asleep or something. And then he suddenly stopped talking to me. We saw the Mr. Roger's documentary shortly after his birthday. I gave him his present, and he didn't want to talk after the movie. I tried to text him, but the convo didn't hold. He just stopped texting me after that, really suddenly. He also left the country for a week, but didn't tell me. I learned through a friend. So I thought I had done something wrong and that he hated me. When school started, he teased me a lot and that made me think he hated me more. Now he's dating one of my best friends, which I support. They are cute together, but it still hurts. And now I know that even if I tried again, our friendship wouldn't be the same as it was a couple months ago.

With that said, there was a few months where I was experiencing some sadness and hollowness so I stopped eating in the evening out of feeling no urge to eat or do anything other than lay in bed which turned out to be intermittent fasting. I ate 2 bagels or english muffins on my walk to the bus(no spread or condiments on them) and then whatever for our lunchbreak at 11am. Sometimes a snack between and a soda/latte/energy drink after work around 4pm. I'm not overweight but even with eating 2 meals 4 hours apart I shed like 14 pounds very quickly on accident while living like this. I told my roommate I dropped over 10 pounds and that I quit eating dinner and was told "that's intermittent fasting!".

even if i stay friends with his creepy pathetic ass because he begs for it, he doesn't even make the slightest effort of acting like a "friend"
he never messages me unless i wait a week or two and have to be like "whats up with you?", only ends up criticizing me instead of talking to me.
he treats his shitty d&d friends better than me. he talks to them way more often, treats them as equals, and sees them irl once a week. i can't even see him unless i have to be like "hey, it's been a while, wanna meet up?" and he'll give 20 excuses before agreeing.
it's like, why have a melt down about staying friends with the child you groomed years ago and then when you ARE "friends" you don't even treat them right.
he doesn't even find any use in me anymore, he doesn't want to sleep with me anymore, he sees 0 value in me, and yet he still plays victim when i call him out on his behavior. i'm always doing this for this grown ass man.
when he was about to get fired for pursuing me, i stood up for him. when he went job searching, i found things for him and helped him apply. i've always been there, even if i was manipulated into doing so, and i don't get an ounce of respect back.
i want him dead, and if he doesn't die soon, then i'll end up taking my own im so so sick of this i want to be a normal adult now not a broken kid inside

I don't even care that I'm paid peanuts, I'm happy as a clam just mixing tzatziki,chatting and listening to German techno on my coworker's ipad.
I feel like people will look down on me if I ever say this out loud, because it's seen as a shit job where I live. Unfortunately I'm also really clumsy so I'm also afraid of losing the job.

I'm so ugly I've never really felt like a woman. I relate to troons more than I should because I just feel like I didn't exist as a woman until I settled into my looks in my 20s, and now I'm almost 30. I never got to be a normal girl in my youth. My face is already ugly as hell but on top of that I have a skin disease that makes me look and feel like a damn lizard and during my school days people would be scared to even sit next to me on the bus for fear of catching my illness and ending up like me. Classmates would refuse to touch me or share utensils with me and men were only interested in me online. As a result of that I've never had a normal relationship with a normal person and still feel like some sort of alien. I overcompensate by trying to be really feminine but I just feel like a man larping as a woman.

idk where to ask this so ill put it here, does anyone else feel self conscious wearing nice clothes? i bought some nice clothes a while ago because i only have baggy shit but i cant work up the courage to wear them, ive never felt girly or cute before and i feel like its out of character to start wearing that type of stuff now, im also fat so i feel extra conscious of my body

Anonymous 17929

yes, I try to dress up but I just feel like an ugly girl wearing a pretty girl as an outer shell. I still feel weird but that doesn't stop me, I think it will go away after some time if you keep dressing nicely.
And I think you shouldn't worry about what people will think because if you have not been dressing nicely until now then everyone will see you dressing nicely as a positive change and be happy for you. Maybe some people might tease you but just ignore that

God yes. Wearing makeup or nice clothes make me feel like people will think "Aw, bless, she's trying." but everything will realize it looks awkward or wrong on me or that you can put lipstick on a pig but that won't change the fact it's an ugly pig.

Same here, whenever I try wearing makeup or something that isn't standard jeans+tshirt/long sleeve shirt I feel like a little kid wearing her parent's wardrobe for fun despite having a mature face. If I have the courage to go out I feel as if everyone is staring at me. Even going from ponytail to hair down feels wrong somehow.

I feel like such a brainlet. I don’t think I even read because I enjoy it or find it engrossing. I feel like I just read because reading is a “smart” activity and it makes me feel less stupid. It seems like everyone, even my own age, knows more about every subject than me. I just feel ineffectual and stupid. I always need to force myself to read and never do it because I want to do it. Literally all i think about when i’m reading are things like “how many pages are left in this chapter?” and “how much longer will it be until i’m done?” to the point where I’ll need to reread sentences since I was so distracted. I have no drive to do anything but absentmindedly scroll through the internet or stare at the wall daydreaming. I used to be productive.

If I made myself throw up on purpose because I felt bad for eating too much, but I've only done it every once in a while, and not regularly, is it bulimia?

I've already vented about this to so many people for so long that I feel like I shouldn't bring it up anymore, but I don't think I'll ever get over my ex's suicide. I think of him every day. He shaped so much about who I am and even though we split up and mutually agreed we weren't good for each other I just still compare everyone to him. I feel like part of me died with him. I didn't even learn about it until I accidentally stumbled upon something that made me dig around in his social media and I doubt he was still thinking of me by that time, but it just feels like I'll never, ever connect to someone in the same way. I felt that way before he died and now it just feels like I will never ever come to terms with how I was shaped to be exactly what he wanted and then we didn't work out and now he's dead. I'm suicidal (for other reasons) and I even think a lot about doing it the same way he did even though I wasn't even important enough to be notified by anyone. I go on Google Maps all the time and look up the place and imagine how it was like and fantasize about doing it the same way.
After moving away and leaving everything behind, I always have this intense nostalgia for my teenage years in the countryside with my first irl friend group and older friends giving me a ride from village to village at night. I wonder if I'll ever feel that way again. Being part of something and the innocence of that time. Over the years I've gone through so many situations and lifestyle changes, I lost everything I have and nothing connects me to anything anymore. I have no more friends or belongings from that time. I'm not anchored to anything anymore. Everything that reminds me of home makes me cry. It's all tarnished and lost. I'm in this giant, empty world with nothing to my name and I feel like I was pre-programmed for suicide before I even started living. I wish I could turn back time and be suspended in that one year of my life forever. It's not fair to anyone in my current stage of life, but if I could, I would leave everything behind to just be that way again. I feel like I died a long time ago and this is just my punishment for being a bad person. Endless days and nights spent just waiting until it's time to sleep. This has been the last many years. I used to do things and make a name for myself with art and I traveled and had friends. Nobody has heard from me in months. I abandoned all my social media and had to change my number and didn't bother giving it to anyone. The only people I talk to are imageboard friends on Discord. I wonder if my old friends even think about me or if they ever wonder if I ended up killing myself. One day I will.

I've had horrible bloody gallons gush out of me since my periods first started. Like it's bad. Real bad. I also have 2 different clotting disorders which made the periods worse AND meant that traditional birth control was out of the equation. I talked with lady-doc and she recommended i get an IUD. I got the Mirena, but i know there are other kinds. It just releases hormones locally and doesn't really get into the bloodstream, so most likely won't make you vomit.
After getting it…"installed", i bled lightly for like a month straight. But my periods after that have gone from, having to be careful standing up, lest a bunch of blood gush out, to wearing a regular tampon for 8 hrs without it being soaked. Maybe this would be a good route for you, too.
I hope this helps, i know how bad periods can get.

I've been having a hard time getting along with my significant other for a long time. He thinks that I do things for malicious reasons, and we've talked about it. I feel like he's asking too much of me, and that i'm not able to give all of that and still take care of myself. I find some relief in gaming, and meet some wonderful people. I met this one dude that just like…flipped a switch in me. I know blah blah flings don't last blah blah blah. But I've talked with this person almost every day for 4 months, now. We've sent pictures (not the naughty kind) so that we know what the other looks like. And now I feel horrible. I feel stuck and obligated to someone that i've dedicated a huge portion of my life to, but I think I'm really really enjoying this other person. I'm falling into a state of just being dead inside. I fucking hate it. I hate myself, and I'm confused. I've always had amazing self control and discipline…but i feel like i'm out of control.

i've had this constant pain in my chest since july after a running accident and it's starting to get worrisome. sometimes i feel like i can't get in enough air when i breathe – like i'll breathe deep and it does nothing to make me feel less breathless

i have seen a cardiologist but he just gave me a nuclear stress test and i got the results over the phone (apparently a small, reversible defect was found!), and subsequent visits have done nothing to help me. i've been back 2 times. he offered another test and said he'd be looking for someone that could give it but i've gotten no news on that, and it's been a month. also it's another nuclear test which i really don't want to do, don't want to risk getting cancer in my 30s.

i want to see another doctor but i'm poor, don't know where to go, and am having issues with getting my results from the hospital. like, my ACTUAL results, the images of my heart. i tried to get them at the clinic but they told me to call the hospital, i believe the hospital told me to call the clinic again. i don't get these loops.

guess i'll schedule another appointment for this week & try to get the hospital to fax my results OVER to the clinic, so i can pick them up? maybe ask him what doctor he sees? i just don't know. i'll have to do something.

i also got a blood test recently to check my oxygen levels but i did have it done at some seedy walk-in clinic so who knows if it was accurate lol. even if the guy does have gleaming results online. perhaps i'll try another clinic next week, or later on this week

god help me. i'm not fat (i'm like, 5'7 132~ pounds) and i don't smoke. i've never drunk a day in my life, i just ran without stretching once and now i'm dealing with this.

I can’t get over the guy I dated. It’s been months now and we have no contact at all. I still check who views my instagram stories in hope I will see his name and know he also wonders how I’ve been and what I’ve been up to, but unlike my exes from the past… nothing. I hate the fact that I can’t hate him, he was never horrible or bad to me, he just said he didn’t want a relationship right now and I took it with my head held up high and thanked him for being honest and walked away, despite him pursuing me for months and changing his mind as soon as I wanted him back. Despite him knowing I’m not a girl who hooks up but tried to anyway knowing he didn’t want anything more. Despite him knowing I was soft hearted, vulnerable and easily hurt. All these things should have made him apparent to me to be a really shit person to go and do what he did but I didn’t get mad, maybe I would have felt better if I did get mad and I called him an “insensitive fuck boy” and accused him of trying to fuck and chuck me but I never. I kept my dignity and expressed no upset when he rejected me as being anything more. I didn’t guilt trip him. I was kind and wished him the best of happiness in life. Yet. 3 to 4 months down the line I still feel terrible. I’m still bitter. I still miss him because my brain has canonised him as some sort of saint ideal man who ticked every box to the point I don’t even know anymore if I want him or the idea of him. Is this a make believe idea of him that my brain randomly day dreams about. Those make believe scenarios that will never happen that I think about when I’m in the bath, or brushing my teeth or waiting for the kettle to boil. I feel like I’m going crazy! I cut off contact, deleted him on all social media, don’t check up on him ever, I haven’t in months, yet I don’t feel any better, I don’t forget him, I think of him every day and just wish he was in my life. He probably was trying to use me for sex, he is probably a really bad person under his persona but does the reason of what he did to not want me matter if the result remains the same? Probably not. So I’ll take his word for it and naively believe his long paragraph of why we could not have a relationship as the truth. Whether he wanted to use me, or did like me but really couldn’t have a relationship right now, doesn’t change the fact I still feel a massive empty space now he’s out of my life and don’t know how to move on. I have hobbies, a good job, I spoil myself, don’t have as many friends as I would like but everything else I want I’ve got… everything but that. I can’t even talk to other guys because I feel so disinterested in anyone but him, and I don’t want to get hurt all over again neither… yet I hate being alone.

Sorry long rant. Got a lot of feels bottled up.

Anonymous 18168

I don't understand why you're even entertaining the idea of him just having wanted to use you. He broke up with you before you two had sex. Why wouldn't he just have given you more time if that was his goal? I mean, maybe you dated some alpha chad that feels more confident he can bang a new girl within two weeks than get you over to your side in less than that - but if that doesn't sound like the guy you dated, stop vilifying him for no reason. People are allowed to decide who they can see themselves spend the rest of their life with and who not, and there's nothing wrong with dating someone before being certain about the answer to that question.

Good on you for genuinely working on moving on though.

Anonymous 18169

I’m not vilifying him as I don’t hate him as I said before. If anything I’m probably mentally making him out to be better than he was. Just it would be easier to get over him if I could hate him as opposed to me missing someone and thinking about how perfect someone was and never going to have them in my life now. It’s hard to get over someone when you cannot dislike them. Majority of my friends hate him for what he did and said he was leading me on and because I said no when he tried to sleep with me he moved on and probably cut it off when I started to like him back as he only wanted a hook ups… that’s what my friends have said, I haven’t though I consider it could be a possibility so I think I’m far from vilifying him.

If they've really fallen for you, then there is no one better. There's no one else they'd rather have, because those people aren't you.
It sounds like you're more concerned with what you think they should want, than what they actually do want.

If you really aren't able to overcome these feelings, you should talk to a therapist or something.

Plenty of guys get confused for girls from the back or at a glance if they have long hair. It just has to do with what people expect the average man/woman to look like.
