Period Discussion General Anonymous 9864[Reply]

Discuss any findings from the period survey >>9534 or any other period related things here.

One thing that surprised me from the survey was how many women have at least one extremely painful day every month, yet this is barely spoken about and all women are just expected to get on with things.

Did anyone notice anything else?

I’m not anaemic but I get heavy periods. This morning after sitting up for a while I was sooooo dizzy my head was spinning (like vertigo) but also felt lightheaded and like I was gonna faint. Does anyone else get severe dizziness and lightheaded on their period? It scared the shit out of me and I literally had to crawl to my bed and lay down and drink a load of water with crackers (which helped a bit but I’m still scared)

Anonymous 11648

Yes, I get that too. It could be that your iron or hemoglobin are lower than the optimal range, but not low enough to get a diagnosis. It's worth taking some iron supplement, at least when you're on your period, if that's the case.

I started spotting about two weeks after my last cycle, and it only lasted a couple days. I've been under a lot of stress and haven't had this happen in a long time, should i be concerned, or do you think it's just the stress anons

Anonymous 11664

If it's around two weeks after the last cycle it could be just ovulation! Sometimes it causes spotting and it's nothing to worry about.

Anybody here workout?

I work out pretty regularly; regular weight lifting and strength training along with plenty of cardio. I can bench press 120lbs, but I've gone as high as 150lbs on good days.
It's come to the point where friends and family have taken notice because I've become considerably more muscular.
Sometimes I contradict myself because I don't want to be known as the buff girl, but I love seeing those numbers climb on the smith machine. And I can physically do more than I ever was able to before. I don't want to lose that.

Does anyone else here have a workout/exercise regime? Doesn't matter if it's only cardio or if you're a gym bunny like me. Let's talk about it!

Thank you for your well wishes. I appreciate it, sincerely.
Healthy meals and good regimented sleep is a great start. Just keep it up. The hardest part is making it a habit and sticking to it. Takes a lot of willpower. You can do it. I believe in you!
The bad days where you don't feel like doing it or eating well are the hurdles that you really need to strive to clear. Once you get past the hardest days everything else just becomes easier.
Best of luck!

yeah i figured a three month response was a bit iffy. would you say prices have recovered from being raised by covid or are they still going to be high?

Anonymous 11738

depends on where you buy from. you have to wait for someone needing to get all their shit out of the garage asap. older gym guys want like the down payment of a house plus a kidney for this kind of stuff, no idea why they price so insanely high. prices will probably drop further tho so if you can wait, i'd say do it. secondhand bikes were insane like two months ago and now they're cheap

to anyone buying used power cages they often have nylon insert nuts which can't be reused so if you take it apart to move it you'll need to replace them.


Disability general Anonymous 11446[Reply]

I don't think there has been a thread for those who might have some form of disability here. This thread is for discussing any problem related to a disability, it can be a mental or physical problem as long as this thread can help you feel less alone in this struggle it is all that matters. I personally have issues related to my hearing, I am curious to see if other anons do too here.

(Honestly this entire post is just TW)
I have a case of aspergers so bad, that people never understand what I’m trying to say.
I have a couple of friends, but I can only chatter about positive and superficial issues with them, because they get weirded out otherwise.
It’s not that they’re bad people, they just seem scared of me when I’m crying, because I explain things so weirdly that they don’t know how to offer comfort.
My parents were okay I guess, but not that good, since father was always absent, and mom had undertreated BPD.
My only true connection was between my pet, but she had to be put down an year ago due to cancer (and I developed asthma so I cannot get a new one, not that I want to).
And this year, the year after, was the worst of my life.
I miss her every day, and wonder if I should speed up my natural death somehow, because I can’t take 40+ years of living like this, without her.
I know people laugh at me when I tell them that, even my therapist did, because they think pets are insignificant, but I don’t care what they think.
She understood me better than they did, and if thinking that makes me a ”retard” and ”otherkin furry”, I don’t care.

>I know people laugh at me when I tell them that, even my therapist did, because they think pets are insignificant
What the fuck kind of therapist did you go to that said something like that? That's ridiculous. I'm honestly in shock that someone in the mental health field would say anything remotely like that.

Agreed. This therapist sounds incompetent.

I've been taking a bunch of pills to help me with my current episodes of my diease. But I have noticed that I started to eat much more because of these. I never really was a big eater. Should I be concerned? Maybe it's just anxiety. I don't want to fall back into monitoring my weight and obsess over numbers.


Realistic body hair image and discussion thread Anonymous 11602[Reply]

I used to always have an issue with feeling "too hairy" despite it being totally normal and healthy, specifically because our body hair is so purposely hidden by media and the spectrum of normal body hair is wide, it made me feel really shitty. I recently came across images of celebrities with body hair (not just pits like we all have), but stomach hair, noticeable vellus chest hair, back hair, and it's very reassuring. I know a lot of girls and women have body image issues and could just be feeling like they're more hirsute than normal when they're actually not, or have PCOS, or just come from a genetic background that is slightly more fuzzy than some others. So here are pics of celebs that we normally classify as being "perfect" and assume are hairless.

Here's Vanessa Marano with upper back/neck hair. These are HQ pics, so you'll have to zoom in for most to see. I hope this kind of thing helps other anons to feel more comfortable in their own skin.

I don't see how the amount of body hair that people have in all of the pictures that were posted would be too much. Of course it will show up more if you are taking pictures with a flash. But I don't know a single person that would see this amount of hair as an issue.

Anonymous 11733

I see where you're coming from, and it might be nice to have women with leg hair/ less normalized body hair on here as well, but I've actually met women who do see the small amount of hair in these images as an issue. Plus, you can't deny that most of the celebrity images we see of women don't even have that small amount of hair.

Anonymous 11735

maybe not enough to feel like a designated freak show but all the celebs don't keep their body hair natural anymore from what i can tell and i've seen girls bullied for body hair (upper back and tummy). maybe i'm just neurotic but my normal ethnic bg compared to my super white mostly hairless anglo friends made me feel like shit as a kid and teen

Anonymous 11737


and btw cardi b was mocked heavily all over the internet for having just a little bit of vellus upper tummy hair at the grammys, pic related

Anonymous 11739

If you are white, having this kind of hair is terrible. I shave my torso religiously.

crunchy vegetables and fruits really fill me up, also small stew with vegetables and bean sprouts feels like ramen and i eat it often when i get hungry. its even better with eggs, tofu and rice seasoning. just 2 hard boiled eggs dipped in a but of salt always fills me up. Usually though, if i wanted something more sweeter making a parfait with some berries, honey, nuts, and plain greek yogurt always helps me out!

It's really not difficult to look better than 90% of people if you stick to a lower BMI, take good care of your skin, hair, and oral hygiene, and groom yourself regularly. There's no reason to be jealous.

Anonymous 11383

It's not actually "hate" but if I know a person (especially a woman) was naturally attractive in their formative years through college I am inherently distrustful of them. I've seen what a person can do when they have the social capital to weaponize other people and it's unpleasant.
This is also true. Sometimes I feel like my fitness/skincare routine saved my life.

Grew up as an ugly fat kid with a lazy eye and crooked teeth. I’ve always had friends because I’m smart and witty. Basically by the end of middle school I had lost some weight and grew tits and learned how to do my makeup…also finished braces and got corrective eye surgery.

It’s fucking dehumanizing. People just see you as your appearance and guys especially literally could care less about your brain.

I prefer now to just wear hoodies and jeans so people will listen to me in discussions.

Anonymous 11601

I bit the bullet a month ago and did Japanese hair straightening. Before my hair always looked kind of rat-like because I didn't take care of it (too much effort). Now I look much better, people are nicer to me and I've received some male attention. It's nice because my confidence has gone up so I'm less anxious in public but it's also a bit depressing that there's such a huge difference in the way I'm treated.

I've become obsessed with split hair which I know is horribly egirl of me but it looks so good. It would be the first time I've changed my hair in a few years so drastically. I've done about every color in the past except yellow, green, and orange and it all turned out fairly well with bright blue being the best of them

Anonymous 7438

Split colors look really good!

Anonymous 7443

im >>7421 and i took the plunge. My hair bleached out nicely to a strawberry blonde color and then toned to a nice and fairly light blonde with a hint of copper ( i do plan to do another toning and then maybe one more round of bleach towards my ends which are a bit dark). I've gotten a lot of compliments and people asking me how i've done it. im very pleased so far

What advice would you give to an anon who just cant fashion?

Anonymous 11543

Tired of looking like a slob? Want people to take you seriously and not treat you like a schizophrenic hobo? Become a soulless normie that makes people say “wow, she looks like a background character but at least one that has all her shit together” Here’s how:
1. Collect neutral clothes that aren’t scratchy or see-through and all match with each other (stick to white gray navy and beige if you truly cannot match anything). Get bras and underwear that are as neutral and seamless as you can afford that won’t show through under your clothes. Show skin if you want but limit it to one area (cleavage, leg, tummy, general “fitted”-ness around the bum) unless you want to get a lot of attention. To further elevate your look, gravitate towards pieces with buttons and zippers rather than pull-overs or trousers with just an elastic waistbands if you can help it. Pay attention to laundering instructions and hang your clothes to avoid wrinkles. That part may sound silly but it does make a difference as the bar is literally on the floor when it comes to modern fashion.
2. Make sure your hair/face is presentable. Look to others to figure out hair trends for your age group. Try doing basic skincare. This may seem unrelated fashion but clear skin and good hair are more important than clothes in the modern day.
3. If clear skin is impossible, or you’re just insecure, try light makeup (you don’t need to if you don’t want). Gradually practice with products at home before adding them into your routine. Keep in mind that if people are used to seeing you in makeup, they will notice if you don’t wear it. Masks made this step sort of unnecessary anyways but it’s worth mentioning.
4. Don’t overdo it with accessories. Stick to delicate jewelry pieces and only a couple at a time (piercings count as jewelry). Scarves are fine for fall/winter but hats will draw attention to you unless you’re at the beach or it’s actually below freezing. Bag trends fluctuate so just get a functional bag in a neutral color that just barely fits all your shit.

These steps helped me literally get dressed in the dark for 8 years while still looking normal if not better than my peers. I’ve since moved on to having more fun in fashion as I’ve embraced NEETing and gotten more body-confident but there’s definitely a level of effort and discomfort that comes with being fashionable so I’m happy I got a foundation in normie-dressing first that I can fall back on if I need to.

wear all black, always. Or all dark grey. If the colors are neutral and monochromatic, you'll automatically look sharp, even if you're just wearing a baggy sweater and jeans. Darker colors are great because stains don't show and your face will stand out from your clothes.
Invest in one good-quality bag, one pair of shoes, and one belt that all have matching hardware. For example, the metal parts should all be gold or all be silver.
I do this and get loads of compliments on my outfits.

Anonymous 11615

To add to this, make sure all the blacks "match" and redye them when they start to fade. DO NOT ever try and pass something navy or dark brown off as black. Grey is ok though.

I don't think it's dead per se. It seems to have dimmed down, but if you look at current alt fashion, you'll find that lolita just seems to go under different names these days. Find me one current alt trend that doesn't have major lolita influence

I read a post once that the problem is the name "Lolita" and that people want to distance their interest from the implication of that title

Much easier to be overweight when short

Anonymous 11390

Don't overweight people tend to be taller, though? Unless they got fat later in life and were thin as kids/teens.
Also, in my experience, people take you more seriously and see you as more "mature" if you're taller, even if you're thin. I'm thin and need to wear heels to work to avoid being treated as a child.

Anonymous 11393

if you mean overweight in terms of BMI, its the opposite
