Sometimes I am happy that I am not as ugly as say, a Slaton sister or Shaygnar or whatever, but then I remember I am just a few levels above. I hate PCOS and I hate society for making me believe I should be pretty above all else. I was such a happy kid.

I want to have real friends but I have no idea how to make those outside school. I kind of regret I didn't learn how to make and keep friends in a healthy way in my teens but fuck I can't really blame myself for being emotionally stunted.
At least I'm going to therapy now, so let's see if that helps.

I wish I weren't so autistically nervous around men. Doesn't matter the guy but cute men are especially troubling. Eye contact becomes a weird mix of look away, don't look away, and I don't know what to say to them when they try talking to me. I'm not good with being social in general but girls are generally easier for me to be comfortable around.

I wish I could just buy a boyfriend.

I'd pay someone to pretend to be my bf just like an escort then take him to meet my parents and friends, take some pics together to prove my 'taken' status and never actually having to do anything.

I've never felt like having a relationship or cared about sex all that much, the reason I want a bf is because I care a lot about what people think and I'm just tired of being hit on and disrespected by men. Thinking about being with guys I know make me physically cringe tho, I'm not attracted to women either.

I'm annoyed because my bf can't stick to a plan to save his life. We were supposed to have friends over at our place tomorrow for his birthday party. He asked me to bake a cake and everything, so I did and I invited our friends over just like we had planned. And then suddenly today he was just like "oh I'm gonna go visit my family I dont know when I'll be home."
And I'm just over her like, what? We're going to be having your birthday party and you don't know when youre coming? Why would you agree to a party and then not attend it? I don't get it.

My boyfriend's family's super disorganized and tend to just plan shit a few days before and make him go. For example, we were supposed to go to a con together with a bunch of my other friends and suddenly his family decides to go on a three-week trip to BC. I get that you might not have much choice when you're still living with them but it was real annoying to hear. I'm still going to enjoy my time with friends but uuuugh.

I want to finally slowly start outing myself to my friends and family as lesbian and how I have loving gf and how precious she is to me, just like everyone does it.
Only worry is my mother who thinks having gay child is disgrace and failure as a mother. Like it would be starting a war with her and probably her side of family avoiding me, but I don't even really care I am not even close in any way with them, seeing them once a year.

I was angry when I wrote my original post but I've calmed down now and realize it's not such a big deal. We're going to just start the party without him but hold off on the cake until he gets home.
I guess I was more annoyed by the fact that this is a recurring problem with him, like for example he never wants to reserve anything or buy tickets beforehand for anything because he's always changing his plans on the go. Whereas I'm a bit of a control freak and prefer to make reservations whenever possible even when they're not required. Plus I always end up having to wait for him because he's always like "this'll take 5 minutes" and it'll always take like 45 minutes… he sometimes makes our friends wait too which I hate even more, like I start to feel embarrassed as if it's my fault… bleh.

Living with my bf is like living with a teenager when it comes to chores and domestic responsibilities. The only thing I can say for him is that he pays rent on time and does his own laundry sometimes without my asking–although the loads occupy the machines for days.
I can't rely on him to tidy, clean, or do anything else without a prompt. And sometimes even when I ask he half asses things.
It's always
>I forgot.
>I'll do it later.
>I did it already (no)
>It didn't look that bad to me
These sound like passive aggressive excuses teenagers make to get their parents to do their chores.

Today I woke up and the kitchen was absolutely skanky.
I fell asleep on the couch, but bf stayed up to play video games until at least 6am.
Did he use any of that time to do dishes or even put away condiments from dinner? N-O.
He left it knowing I would do it.
Uncapped condiment bottles, trash not taken out, unwashed cookware and utensils, unran dishwasher, filthy counters, filthy stovetop, unswept floor, part of the fridge that he broke off days ago still lying about, rotting leftovers bf said he'd eat, and the list goes on.

I'm a very clean person and bf knows this shit triggers me. Foolishly, I used to try cleaning everyday but it just caused me to have a mental breakdown cause the place would be pigged up by the next day anyway. So I try not to be a "nag"; letting the place go for a day or two but by a couple days of being cool I expect cleaning shit to be together. But no. Obviously this doesn't work out 9 times out of 10.
So I spent my entire morning cleaning before work.
To be clear–if I was some spoilt bitch who stayed at home and spent hubby's paychecky I might be okay with being his maid. However I work 40 hours, and would like to actually relax when I'm home but I digress…

I had to touch, handle, and smell such gross shit that I was cussing a storm while doing so all out of frustration. Bf heard me but didn't come into the kitchen until 1pm because he knew the state had pissed me off.

When he finally came in I had a loud, angry tone towards him. I told him to take out the trash and scrub the bin with bleach because it was nasty from him having put garbage in there (""""accidentally"""") without a liner and ignoring it.
He said "Well you don't have to yell."
Really?
He doesn't have to spend every waking moment at home playing video games!!
In fact, he could proactively help out by doing small tasks and chores so things don't buildup so badly in the first place!

I should have said that but all I could think to reply with was to not invalidate my feelings by policing my tone.
My mother would have HAD MY ASS if I so much as left a dish in the sink, and then have an attitude about her scolding me? I would have been dead where I stood.

I hate how he takes such a victim stance when I'm rightfully angry and he's too uncomfortable to admit he's wrong. He does the task but never apologizes for what this shit does to me mentally. Then he tries to butter me up and get touchy with me after but I get too disgusted because I know that's all manipulation.

I just hate it. Our relationship would be fine otherwise if he was motivated and not a slob with excuses.

Your boyfriend sounds like my ex-fiancé. Apparently I was the biggest nag because I found filth triggering and wasn't impressed that he emptied the bins once every 2 weeks. Either get him on board with pulling his weight or ditch him he sounds incredibly selfish and immature. You'll be stuck being his mother. For 2 years my ex was unemployed and sat all day while I was at work for 40 hours a week playing video games. Never once did I come home to a prepared meal or a tidy home. Most days he would go to his ma's for lunch and only return home when he knew I was in. At the weekends when I finally had free time he would arrange trips away camping with his mates 'for a break'. I dumped him in 2014 and he still hasn't got a decent job and lives at his parents. I doubt he is ever going to move out.

My boyfriend and his sister are very close, and honestly, when they are together they can be pretty mean. It's mostly his sister.

I guess sometimes our personalities don't match. She's incredibly outward and aggressive, and very self-centered. I'm very passive. There's a lot of little things that get between us. She can often be very harsh with me and it hurts my feelings, but I can't confront her about it because I'm afraid of her (she tends to be very confrontational and is not opposed to yelling at people and insulting them all in the name of "honesty". So I tend to talk about my feelings to my boyfriend, and he often isn't much help because he doesn't know how to talk about feelings. So usually I end up feeling stuck and alone. I don't want to bad-mouth his sister but I don't know what to do about it.

Today, I wasn't feeling well so I sent them a message that I was sorry I couldn't go out with them tonight, and that I just wanted to let them know I love them and care about them very much. They completely ignored my message and just went on talking. I felt pretty bad about it and said that to my boyfriend. He brushed me off and said that they are just not "emotionally receptive". Am I crazy that it's pretty rude to not say anything back to a person when they tell you they care about you? Or am I just blowing everything out of proportion?

I know this seems overblown, but there are a lot of little things every day like this that drive me crazy. I am currently organizing a first meeting with a therapist because I can't seem to regulate my emotions and I want to learn more positive coping mechanisms. They make me feel like a crazy person, to be perfectly honest, and are the main reason why I'm seeking a therapist.

I could feel my emotions rising after I talked to my bf and I got mad and was pretty passive aggressive about tonight. I feel bad for being passive aggressive, but I don't know how to apologize when I'm still upset. I want to tell my boyfriend I'm sorry, but I'm not sure how. I am currently just not touching my phone because I don't want to talk to him while I'm still mad. I am nervous they are talking badly about me behind my back right now and I don't know what to do.

Unfortunately, men (and just people in general) expect others to be their maids. It's not only just our boyfriends/fiances/husbands; lazy people will expect you to clean up after them, and will act like you are an insane, raging harpy because you spend every waking moment cleaning up their filth and have the audacity to ask them to lend a hand with it.

I really believe it's just that people who developed good cleaning habits and a strong sense of ethic will be exploited and manipulated by people who would willingly live in pig stys, if they were so allowed. Ever since I moved out at 18, I have been the "maid" of the house. My mother and father instilled in me the importance of cleanliness; not only for health and hygiene, but also if you keep things clean and well cared for, they will last longer and you will save money. So when I began living with people whose mothers cleaned up after them their whole lives (or just never bothered to make them do chores,) I ended up picking up all the slack.

It's physically and mentally exhausting to constantly pick up after the people around you, and receive not thanks but spite. I can't believe that my roommates would constantly complain about me having to move the chairs to sweep, or that I would take dirty dishes from around the house to clean them. I have given up on asking for help, even from my boyfriend. I feel so defeated.

I know this isn't helpful to either of you, but just know that you are not alone in your struggle. I have so much more empathy for my mom now.

Fuck anon, I'm sorry you went through that nonsense. The part about him going camping with his mates for a "break" is the worst–like bitch, break from what you don't work! Lol.

Although mine acts eerily similar. Every moment he's not at work he's either plopped in front of the tv/phone with games, or he's out with his friends drinking, trivia, and/or karaoke.
I mean if I asked him to cancel his plans for time with me he would, but of course that still makes me look bad and controlling.

I just don't know what these men are trying to escape from exactly? I'd be more understanding if he worked a super demanding job, with long hours, and had a lot of extraneous responsibilities outside work.
But he's a bartender at a restaurant and sometimes doesn't work a full 40 a week. If he feels under pressure then I don't know where the fuck from that's so unusual from what I, or any other normal person, feels. Yet I still manage to not be messy as do most other people.

I think this anon >>249183 is on to something about lazy people always finding someone to low key manipulate.

Anyway, I know there's not really a lot of answers to my situation but it makes me feel better to know I'm not alone in all this. I thank you for the replies, I feel a bit less bad now.

I don't think you're crazy anon. Being someone who's extremely passive myself, I can understand why you're hurt by their actions.
I don't think it's fair for your boyfriend to not care about your feelings just because it's his sister.
There was no reason to ignore you and brush off your feelings because they're "not emotionally receptive". That's bullshit and you're not crazy for thinking that they were rude, because they were. It sounds like they just use that as an excuse because they're assholes who don't give a shit and don't want to change.
A therapist will be good, especially since you said you were feeling very alone. Hopefully they can help you with the problems you're facing, and I hope your boyfriend and his sister can realize that they hurt you and apologize. I'd keep pushing how you feel, because he needs to recognize that he either treats you with respect and acts like he gives a shit, or you should leave and find someone who won't make you feel alone.
Also, don't apologize. You're not the one who should.

Thanks for your response, anon. It feels better to have someone who understands.
He sent me a message saying he was sorry that he hurt my feelings and he feels terrible that I feel so sad sometimes, and asked what he could do to help me. He's generally sweet and tries to see my side of things. I think he's just a bit emotionally stupid.
I don't think his sister will apologize, though. She does stuff like be rude or hurtful to me often and she's never apologized. (Most of the girls in our friend group are like this, and it makes me feel very awkward.)

It's nice to know that someone else doesn't think I'm crazy. I honestly think that it's mostly his sister who I have the most problems with. She's so aggressive and competitive and she usually talks to me like she's talking down to me. I really want to be her friend, but it's been difficult.
Even one of my other friends has told me that she acts very strangely around me and my boyfriend; my friend said she noticed that every time my bf gave me attention, his sister would pull him away and try to get him to pay attention to her instead. It's a very weird thing and I don't understand how to deal with her.

Thanks for telling me I should keep pushing my feelings. It's really hard for me to think I deserve to be respected and treated like I matter by anyone.

I'm sorry, I know I'm rambling. This is why I'm seeking therapy, haha. There's so much going on in my head and it's hard to put together. Thanks again, anon.

Welp, stayed up all night watching weight loss youtube videos.

It got me browsing through my folders of old cell phone pictures I saved from 2014-2016.
I was 100 pounds lighter then. Super active, I ran and went to the gym regularly. I never ate because I was happy and not stressed. I had just spent the previous two years losing 80 pounds. Also finished my grad program and had a lot of hope, a lot of free time too.

A couple years and a soul-suckin', sedentary job later, mixed with some depression and anger, and I'm saying hello to the obesity train again. Toot toot.
I think I've lost a collective total of ~400 pounds throughout my life and I've rebounded every pound and then some.

The sad part is recalling how I thought of myself at the time when the old photos were taken. l remember thinking I was a fat sack of shit and being so self-conscious, when undeniably it was my peak. I was healthy. I had no logical reason to feel that negatively, and now I wish I could go back to that tomorrow. But I can't, it's too late and now any progress will take another series of years.
Yet it's getting to the point where I'm miserable, again, and hate how I look, again, and facing the choice of either losing weight or committing sudoku…again. There really isn't a choice unless I wanna say 'fuck everything' and wind up on My 600 Pound Life eventually.

I downloaded the myfitness app again, but I still hate myself. It all feels like a silly game that I play myself with.
Maybe I'd feel less lonely and hopeless if I had a solid support system. Or maybe a fellow fattie to talk to?

Bf acts indifferent about my weight because he loves me, but doesn't try to actively be sexual with me anymore unless he comes home plastered, which I refuse. And I mean, I feel gross naked regardless of the fluff he tells me.

My parents are both overweight since they've quit smoking cigs, but they're trying to get better too. They mean well, but they don't set good examples and they always downplay my feelings about my weight because they're christian and think that looks don't matter. Whilst society and life screams at my face that looks do matter.
At that–I'm the only one in the family that's ever lost a significant amount of weight so there's no advice they could give me. They actually believe in a lot of myths.

Friends (esp people who first knew me when I was thin after weight loss) have ghosted me these days. Mostly because I shut myself in the apartment when I'm not at work, and my no-life work schedule makes that easier to achieve. A friend of mine tried to make me feel better and told me how I'm such a nice person and great friend, because when she first met me I was "so pretty" that she thought I was mean and stuck up. It's well-intentioned, but I couldn't help but smirk at the backhanded implication that I was no longer pretty and thus she felt less threatened around me. Ouch.

Other times I get unsolicited advice or weird fad bullshit, "Hey anon, try these pills that make you shit to lose weight!" All I can do is meekly say t-thanks lest I look like an ungrateful, know it all fatty fatso.

I know how to lose weight and I know what to do.
I just hate myself too much. Maybe subconsciously I'm not convinced I'm worth it. Maybe I can't deal with stress and how my life's turned out career-wise so I binge eat to feel better.
I'm not sure.

Oh anon, I have been struggling with weight as well lately. I managed to lose weight around 2011 and stayed like this until 2015. After that, everything basically went to shit. I didn't gain toomuch, but it's noticeable and it makes me feel very, very bad about myself. I started trying to lose it but it's hard. All these years, I stopped eating when I was stressed, and now… I suddenly started eating because it helped me coping. Not good.

It's a shitty thing that your friend said. It's not good for you to stay in the apartment all day. It's also because your fridge and all your food is there too. I tend to overeat when I stay at home. I don't know how the weather conditions in your region are, but have you tried playing PoGo? It helped me shed weight and was a good and fun way to go out. I even met some people through it.

I can only conclude that these boyfriends, while not really loving you, are hanging around out of laziness and enable your self-destruction.

Hey dickface, I can tell you why I stayed with someone for 2 years while he was a lazy cunt. Because I had to keep on top of my job, be social with my friends and family. It's exhausting dealing with someone so selfish and lazy that sometimes it was easier to just get on with life than completely uproot all our foundations (we were engaged planning for a future, at one point we were obviously in love).

Perhaps if you didn't have such a toxic mindset you could get close to a person and figure out that normal people are empathetic and give others chances.

Are you also bemused I started dating someone not selfish, who has a high paying engineer job and cooks me dinner and cleans after himself? Guess since I'm not a piece of shit I was able to naturally move on and find someone better for me. I guess experiences are really important, hopefully you'll have at least one fling before you die alone.

I used to be the smartest kid in my class, from elementary school all the way to high school and I have an IQ above 130. But that doesn't mean anything anymore, because I'm in fucking medschool and even though my dream is to become a child psychiatrist it's destroying my life.

I had to do my first year twice (which is common in my country, because that first year is hell on earth with only a 15% success rate) and it's like it's blasted my brains. Ever since, I've had an awful time focusing on things. I've been suffering from depression for now almost 3 years and it's driving me insane. I'm currently in my second 3rd year because I missed too many finals the first time. I got in a psych ward earlier this year and while it helped me not killing myself, it didn't do much more. I feel like a disgusting slug unable to study for more than 1 hour a day and it's stressing me the fuck out. Plus my dad says I'm going to be expelled if I cant study more (which is false, thank god my uni is not that harsh, but is still awful to hear everyday).
I work at the hospital 3 mornings per week. While my patients usually like me, I can never get along with my classmates and I don't know how to make friends. The only friends I have live 700 km away from me.

I don't know what to do anymore. It feels like my brain is nothing more than scrambled eggs and I feel like neither my psychiatrist and therapist understand how much pain I'm in. I don't want to end it? I just don't want to suffer anymore.

It's gonna be ramadan soon. It sucks because while I'm north African and living in Europe, I never considered myself Muslim but everyone assume I am, so a lot of Muslims are going to ask me why I'm not fasting, or will yell at me if I don't fast, or even insult me or threaten me if I eat in public. It's going to be annoying at best, and since these assholes just dont know how to mind their own business and think asking very personal questions is polite and good small talk, they'll maybe try to ask me about things like if I'm not fasting because I'm on my period or if I have health problems, and if so, what those problems could be, etc. It'll be a pain in the ass because during that time I'll either work and I'll have to eat during breaks or I'll be on holidays and I'll want to go out with friends and maybe go to restaurants. I don't know if anyone here will be in that situation too, if so then complain with me, I feel like I'm the only one in that situation sometimes.

At work there are a lot of moderate Muslims who will fast, so I'm sure they will be awful at work because of the heat, the fatigue and the fact that they won't eat and drink all day long, so it'll be even worse than the previous years too, now that I think about it. I hope nobody will pass out because of their stupid behavior.

Anon I'm on my mobile but I just wanted to say thanks for being so understanding earlier.

Today is a better day, I was in quite a state last night.
So far I haven't logged any calories, cause I'm genuinely not that hungry, and took some vitamins.
I legit asked myself if I was actually hungry instead of eating just cause I'm used to it.

I'm gonna try to break my stress eating habit. I've decided that instead of heading to the drive thru to binge on fast food when I get time off my shift, I'm going to go to the nearby park. To read, walk, whatever.
I'm there right now but I'm contemplating it because it's 90 degrees today with high humidity lol. Either way it's better than stuffing my face like usual I guess.

I love cooking and I make a lot of Korean food. I'm going to have leftover pork wraps for dinner but keep it at a reasonable portion. It's sliced, braised pork belly that you wrap in a lettuce/sesame leaf and dunk in a chili garlic sauce. It's super delicious. Myfitness app actually has my calorie budget waaaaay higher than I expected, and I think I can best it and then some. So far so good.

I'd like to post again in another month. Maybe in the fitness thread next time around!

Dumb rant but I'm conflicted and sad

So a couple years back this girl in our friendship group made it clear she had issues with me and didn't like me, some of our friends always believed it was out of jealousy because she tried to turn people against me over it

Fast forward a few years and I've made some really good friends through college and she is also friends with them so we talk it over and she apologises and we "resolve" it

However, she is really strange about it. She'll be really lovely to me but also it feels like she always has to one-up me at everything. If I make a joke, she'll have to say it but louder until someone laughs and says she's so funny. If I start dressing or doing my makeup and hair a certain way she'll do the exact same. Her hair is dyed the color that mine is naturally as well now. Hell, even on social media she seems to feel the need to outdo me because as soon as I took a profile picture in a pose that got a lot of compliments she deleted her old one, took a new one in the same pose except with a bunch of Snapchat filters to try and be more extra and then said we matched but she said it in a sort of smug way and it was weird.

I also know how she treats people behind closed doors as she is ever so lovely to this one guy she lives with in public but then messages him bullying him in private (he has shown me these messages and her usual tone of uwu is completely abandoned)

I want to believe that this time round we are friends and I do like her despite this weird copying thing because I assume it's an insecurity and we've had some pretty deep talks about that, but it is still a bit worrying because of the past. She says she's different now but then if we talk and we aren't around other friends of ours I feel like she avoids me.

I don't know how to take her copying me either, it's flattering that she finds my style and aesthetic and even my personality and humor nice but it's also really not fun when she has to parade it about like it's hers and use it for attention and validation

I like her and I think she is much better than she gives herself credit for and I want us to be friends but it reminds me of high school when this girl I knew then would go to even further efforts to copy me and it turned out she was using me so my worries about this are a bit magnified

I don't want to hurt or upset her but I don't want to make effort if the truth is she genuinely dislikes me and is just being kind to me for the sake of being polite

Why is America like this?

Had an amazing (from my side) two year relationship with the most understanding kindest most interesting person I've ever met. But I was lying about my age and several other things the whole time because I was underage when we'd met and wanted to get to know him desperately at first and then didn't want to break what we had or hurt him. Broke up later after he dropped out and got depressed and I didn't know how to support him well. Confessed after, he was extremely hurt but still said we could be friends but is understandably cold and uninterested. I feel really guilty about what I did to him, everyone before had broken his trust and I went on to do the same after he'd opened up to me. I was also very cruel and dismissive at time and made him insecure by rejecting him sexually or ignoring him at times and talking to lots of other guys, just thinking about it makes me cry. Now he's extremely closed off, not interested in relationships, says he won't trust anyone or talk about his feelings for a long long time. I don't know how to atone for what I've done. Even if he never talks to me again, I just want to make it right. I can't stand the thought of having been so awful to someone so gentle and kind.

I would look at it through the lens of her having insecurities.
Clearly she's jealous of you, anon. Now that doesn't mean she hates you, but in her mind she's telling herself she can't measure up to you and I'm sure that harbors some conflicting, sour feelings even though that's not your fault. I say that because if she hated you she wouldn't want to imitate you and be like you–but that part is just my tinfoil.

Don't beat yourself up or preoccupy your mind with her as if there's any way to fix what's going on in other peoples' heads.
Keep a healthy distance from her, but be friendly and cordial as being nice doesn't require much effort. Maybe over time she'll learn to trust you and treat you as less of a rival.
And if she doesn't? That's fine too. It would be no skin off your bones because you'd walk away with knowing you treated her nicely even if she chose not to accept your friendship.

One thing I wouldn't do is confront her about it directly, she may see that as aggression and get defensive. It could ruin the process is all I'm saying.

I've been trying to look at it that way too, and maybe this is from my own idiocy or insecurities but what I don't understand is why she'd be jealous of me- she's taller than me and I'm short and people think I'm really cute but I don't feel that pretty and I am incredibly awkward at times. Sorry if that is self-centered to wonder!

In the past, she decided within a week that she wanted the friends I was making to not like me, to me that definitely meant she disliked me. She got really funny about one friend being my friend and would get jealous about that so she'd do all she could to make that friend stay away from me.

I couldn't confront her on it, I want her to be happy, but it is frustrating when she has to bring any attention to her as soon as anyone in the room is listening to me or talking to me.

Maybe that's your own insecurities talking lol. Who knows, maybe you have a style, quality, or look that's admirable in her eyes?
But don't worry anon, I ask myself the same questions about some of the girls who were jealous of me too.

Jealousy is a really strange thing and it makes people do some harsh things. Maybe she felt like she would lose friends to you, so she did those mean things out of desperation.

Either way I know where you're coming from and these situations are always really frustrating and tricky to handle. I empathize.

Low key I'm sad that my boyfriend's family is…frankly, scummy.
I was the only child and I don't have an extended family, so whoever I dated I always wanted to get along with their parents/siblings just so I could feel more connected.

Bf's lived with me ever since we first met yet I've never once met his mother.
His father died of Parkinson's at a young age. The father came from a distinguished family and never married his mother it's not a secret that he stuck his dick in her crazy and the pregnancy was accidental but she kept bf as a money ticket as she would with his sisters that she birthed from different men. The father's side of the family was completely estranged from my bf as a result.

The first year I was with bf, I was supposed to meet his mother during a holiday at her house. I drove 3 hours out there with bf in tow only for her to refuse us coming over last minute because she decided her son had said something to hurt her feelings about money she owed him. She ruined my holiday and it forced me to drive 3 hours back the same day in snow.
She's never once reached out to me even though she knows who I am on facebook. She's intellectually stunted, so if her son makes her feel inferior by just using long words, I unintentionally would too. She's extremely jealous of her own son and is upset that he's made more of himself. She especially dislikes how I have given him a great life and that he has a great relationship with my parents. My parents are almost like surrogates to him, really.

His sisters are kinda shit too.
One is a morbidly obese single mother of two on welfare. She's jealous of us and has made no effort to develop a relationship with me whatsoever. She gets on my nerves because she calls bf whenever she wants to stick her toddler in front of the camera and beg for our money.
She's an emotional manipulator and a person who makes shit decisions. I don't respect her at all.

The other is younger and definitely the smartest of the two. Smart in that I believe she's the only one besides bf to have graduated high school, and she's trying to escape her situation of poverty.
Her answer to the latter is traveling around the country to hook up with men she met online to date/live with them.
I give her a break on that because the truth is she's just trying to escape her circumstances in the only way she knows how.
What irritates me about her is that she tries to use us too. Bf told me yesterday that she had asked him to pick her up at our local airport (not to visit us, we are but the taxi service) and drive her to the train station so she could be en route to the man she's seeing. By that she meant I needed to drive her, it's my car, and hahahaha no.

None of his family ever visits. The rest of his family ignores him no matter how much he reaches out because they're neurotic recluses. Bf's always the one having to travel to see the sisters, and he uses my job perk to get a plane ticket to do so. There's just no effort on their part whatsoever. They don't even send him cards for his birthday or holidays.

It amazes me that he came from such shit people tbh. Makes me sad too though, they're no boon to my life either.

Good luck to you too, just in case.
>but having grown in a place with many North Africans, aka "la téci", I know how they can be in regards to enforcing their Muslim social norms
I bet some of them are the kind of guys who actually don't do anything they're supposed to as Muslims, the kind of guys who smoke, drink, party, insult everyone, etc. but they don't eat pork and fast for ramadan so they think it's all good and they feel like they can call women who don't fast whores.

Sorry I'm going to vent like a crazy bitch and you probably all going to think I'm an horrible person.

I feel like my life is falling apart. Again. I've been holding my shit together for almost a straight year but I feel like killing myself again.
I'm way too old to be back at school at my age. I feel inadequate and worse, I'm still a useless piece of shit. I feel bad at my internship because I suck at basically everything. I feel like a burden and it's getting to me so hard.

There's also my ex I'm still having feeling for. He clearly only continues to talk to me out of pity but I'm afraid of cutting it off and feeling even more lonely afterwards. It's been going on for years. He has a living gf. There's absolutely no hope of getting back together and yet I'm still thinking about it daily.
I have no clue what to do. I can't even keep myself from talking to him. I'm too afraid of blocking him and look like a moody bitch when I'll come begging back for him to talk to me in a week.
We live in different countries, we don't have much in common left. I have no idea why I'm so fixated on it and how to let go.

A bit of a weird rant, but I'm so fucking scared about going to my gyno, since it always hurts like hell. The second time I went I even bled afterwards and felt like peeing constantly (I'm still a virgin, so it's quite clear why the blood…)
I would stop going, but I also always get very sick when on my period, so i need the pill.
Since I've never had sex before I always thought that I might have vaginismus or some shit, but a couple days ago my mother told me that her friend stopped going to the same doc after just one visit because it hurt her too much. That friend is in her 40s and she's had 2 kids, so if even she's in pain, it's quite natural that i'm too.

However, today i got a letter from my gyno saying i haven't had my yearly exam yet. What doctor sends you a letter because of that?! I wanted to try and find a new one, but now it seems like i have to got to her one more time, I honestly feel like crying…

It's not normal that a gyno would hurt you so much and also do vagina exams if there's no reason to…
Also your family doctor can give you a prescription for the pill usually (I'm in Europe and it's the case) so look into that. I've been on the pill two years and never saw a gyno (couldn't find any that receives new clients in my area, thanks doctor shortage lol) but no issue at all.

i've been on antidepresssants for nearly 2 weeks and so far the only change i feel is that i feel dizzy and confused a lot and i am so fucking hungry all the time. i feel like i NEED to eat constantly, even when i know i've already eaten so much that i feel sick, because i feel like i'm starving even when i know i'm not. i know gaining weight is going to make me feel even worse but falling back into bulimic habits is going to make me feel worthless too.
i really hate my life and who i am and i'm sick of just dealing with all of it and being told it'll work out soon. i'm sick of people telling me i'm getting better when i feel worse every day. when my ex broke up with me months ago he kept going on about how it was the best thing for me, and he said the same recently. i wish he would just be honest and say it was just for him, because all it's done for me is show the first person who's ever liked me - not me putting on an act for other people - doesn't want me messing up his life anymore
i really don't think i've actually been happy since i was about 10, i've been constantly unhappy since then and every attempt to fix it doesn't work because I'M the problem. people never like me, i can't do anything well enough to be in education or get a job, things only go well when i spend all my time pretending to be someone else and that just makes me feel more useless inside. i really just hate being alive

The shitty thing about finding the right antidepressant is that it takes a loooong time. They usually take a couple of months to regulate everything smoothly, since things are so chaotic, chemically speaking in the depressed brain.

It’s a bitch of a ride and I can’t say anything that will truly make it easier other than the end of the ride is fucking great.
It’s a lot like a real rollercoaster, the whole time you’re riding it it’s anxiety-ridden ups and screaming downs but when you get off you just feel intensely good and alive.

Finding the medication that works is exactly like getting off the rollercoaster.

Antidepressants themselves are getting a lot better too. (I’d be long dead without Effexor) and there’s so much more likelihood of getting better when there’s more than just Prozac.

You’ve been stuck on this shitty rollercoaster for way too long, but now that you’re finding the right medication the end is in sight. There’s like one big loop and hill left and you can get off the damn thing and enjoy the theme park.

There's a very (or so it seems) popular artist on tumblr that does really beautiful drawings, but as soon as I discovered them I realized they are basically copying Gekidan Inu Curry's style and now (even though I still like the art) I feel extremely disappointed. Specially considering the fact that a lot of artists say this person is their inspiration, and they look up to them. I'm not sure if people doesn't realize that the artist is mainly copying/mimicking Inu Curry's art, or if they just don't care. Maybe i'm just jealous, but I really wish somebody called the artist out. At least to hear what they can say in response, I'm not even saying they have to change their artstyle or anything. Makes me sad because the drawings are actually very pretty and detailed. I have to admit tho, the artstyle is not exacly THE SAME, but if you know some of GIC's works, you will notice the (very) obvious influence.

I'm just gonna go real scatterbrain here 2:50am and can't sleep.

I really hate myself at times, I hate how shy and indecisive I am, how I constantly overthink and worry about others more than my own self , I don't expect it back in return but I feel like there has to be something really wrong with me confidence wise. It's gotten way worse now since I've finished uni and gotten a job.

I've become a shutin near enough again, just work sleep and waste time on netflix or games, I really need to make some friends but its hard to do that back from sqaure one again, it's not even like I can just head out and just join a group or ask people at work.

I hate how fucking shy I am, there is something wrong it might be depression , I dont want to die just disappear like, blink and i'm gone.

there are times I want to die but in a ironic sense to blow off steam.

Christ I'm too old to have these issues its really fucking pathetic , there people younger doing so much more than me. Its not even like I'm starting at 0 its more like -10, its tough even just to force myself up to being normal and a functioning person.

like why do I hate myself, why, I don't get it, I hate seeing my reflection I hate getting my photo taken , I don't feel like I'm there being happy its just a face I'm making , I know I'm not happy , does anyone else know or am I just a burden to them , something awkward to not point out.

I wish at times I could just scream and shout out all this negative shit from myself, as If it would purge myself and I could be ok again.

was i ever happy when I was younger or just ignorant.


>I think I just want to be wanted you know.

>tfw love walking as exercise but my feet blister like a motherfuck

I walked a little over 3 miles with a friend today and could have done more if I wasn't in so much literal foot pain.
I've tried better shoes, bandaging, powders, etc.
Apparently some people are more blister prone.

SO when it comes to work, I'm the only one who has not had a negative experience with our COO once we hired her on last year. However, she has been an incredibly negative energy towards the people the work above me or work with me. And it absolutely kills the work environment.


She'll over-schedule meetings with the person that oversees all of us so that she can't get her work done. She'll criticize the fact that my manager "took so long to get her GED" that allows her to do a certain type of testing for us since she got it (She's in her 40s, made a shit mistake in her teens for a man, and passed everything aside from math the first time around last year and really needed to build her confidence from literally missing it by one point… despite being here for 7+ years and knowing more than all of us… But after working with me more, she passed with a score that was 40+ points of what she got before)


What makes me pissed is that when we got new office equipment, she had told my manager that it would "go away" if she didn't get her GED.
She's also gotten on to people in my department for mingling with other departments and asking if it was "general or work-related chats" in the hallway.


Like, my saving-grace with her is that I have never been called out and have always gotten anything related to her back on time or before. It mainly sucks because I think she respects me because I make damn sure anything that relates to her gets done sooner than needed…. but my managers feel the brunt of her force. Which sucks. Because it's someone that's insecure of themselves becuse she acts just like a more formally educated version of my mother–someone that's ready to leap in on the fact that it's going well and it's all because them (despite the fact they've brpught down the entire company' morale)




But god bless my mom for giving me the ability to give our COO the answers she wants to hear because I have never made myself the victim in this when I should've been.



(I mean, feel free to ignore this. I know I'm lucky in avoiding it. I think my saving grace is the fact I have out-smarted our COO in the past so she doesn't foccus on me as much)

I hate how now almost every girl, every woman online is called a thot. I'd like to think that it's just raging teenagers that like to spout retarded memes but I get the impression that it also includes retarded adult men. I see a girl or a woman that are not even scantily dressed and not doing anything provocative (though if they were not it still shouldn't be an excuse) and a bunch of idiots calling them thots. Of course, if you ask them why they are calling the woman in question a thot, they just say you're triggered. I mean wtf?

thot is by definition a woman considered to be sexually provocative or promiscuous or am I mistaken?

That's so disgusting and yes, these sort of vile comments appear on completely unrelated videos, news comments section, random topics. There's going to be a guy starting an argument about evil women, bonus points for "evil white women" and then a bunch of dudes agreeing with him.

It's sickening how much hatred we get for just existing. It's obviously an important issue for such guys that we have the rights and liberties to dress how we want and ultimately live how we want if they have this need to protest against this even on completely unrelated videos, articles etc.

>sexually provocative or promiscuous
well, i'm not going to claim to be the expert but yeah i think the provocative is more important than the promiscuous. like, it doesn't mean slut. insta hos are presenting their body for attention and money without necessarily being sluts. Like, when black people use it means a trash lower class woman presenting herself as classy and desirable and not pulling it off, or otherwise some kind of similar deceit. when online white guys use it it's less about lower class but still the disingenuous coy thing- it means a woman using her the effect of her body/femaleness to get something, attention or money or status. with these guys use i don't think there needs to be promiscuity or even provocativeness because they reckon women presenting themselves as women anywhere there are men watching will be doing this unconsciously. Like 'gotis' is thottery. It has a little bit of succubus implication, like the insta hoes are acting as temptresses without being available and also trying to pass their work off as something glamourous. the thot is presumptuous

>But the thot label is wielded to indicate class status as much as it refers to sexual activity. Thots are criticized based on sexual behavior, yes, but they’re more broadly identified via their consumption habits; this makes it possible to denounce them on sight even when their sexual histories remain private.
>The fantastical nightmare of the thot is a woman who pretends to be the type of valuable female commodity who rightfully earns male commitment—until the man discovers that she’s just a cheap imitation of a “good girl” who is good only for mindless sex, not relationships or respect.
>“To the elite girls, the girls on Instagram were sluts not necessarily because they were sleeping around but because of what they looked like or how they acted,”

I don't know how to enjoy things. I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing. I don't know what I'm supposed to enjoy. I don't know how much of what I do for "fun" is because I like it and how much is just because I feel like I should like it. Out of work I sit at home and try to relax but end up wasting hours doing nothing. I never feel rested. I know my bf is worrying but I try to suck it up and not make it more of a deal than it needs to be, I don't want to drag him down.

I keep trying so hard to make new friends without being too clingy but maybe I'm just beyond help. I haven't made a real new friend in years. All my co-workers are friends and go for drinks after work or lunch before late shifts, but I'm never asked along or I'm not told it's happening. They all say they really like me, and it's a very informal workplace, but that's it. I never see anyone out of work.

Nobody invites me anywhere, I have one friend I can ask out for lunch and anyone else will always bail on me. I value her dearly but I wish I had other people too.

If it wasn't for my lolita comm I literally wouldn't leave the house for non-work stuff more than once a month. I'm so scared of being depressed again.

I started a new job 2 weeks ago, am now in week 3 and holy shit the head accountant is a massive cunt. She acts all nice around others but stabs them in the back the second she can. She's also in good terms with the two bosses so she thinks she's the shit.

She told me how I'm NOT allowed to know less than the current intern, except she's been working there 3 months before me. So how??

My job is also different than hers, (the accountants) I'm in customer support and shipping. She admits she's not really familiar with my job but the cunt still tries to correct me and tell me what to do.

Today she "supervised" me and the intern while working (it was my first time actually doing work instead of learning the theory and watching). She kept talking to us (but mostly me, since I was working) in such a patronizing way. I literally felt like I was taking a fucking test instead of doing my job and god she kept constantly breathing down my neck, asking questions and making comments how wrong x is and how it would be better to do it her way (we have our own work system). It took us like 20 minutes to complete the transaction/task all because of her. Once she left for a break the intern and I did the task in less than 3 fucking minutes.


She also kept telling me how I don't have to memorize it all by heart, I have the instructions right there! Except she didn't allow me to use or look at them, despite never doing working in that transaction before. She also wants to quiz me tomorrow, but hey, I don't have to know the stuff by heart, only every tiny bit of information about it!

I actually find the job fun and my coworkers are all awesome and super friendly, hell even the bosses are chill and don't take stuff too serious. Except this fat cunt. I'm glad I found out that no one likes her and that they usually avoid her.

I'm still pissed as fuck about the whole thing today and can't believe I have to memorize that crap by tomorrow and what not. Jfc

Are you me from the past? I had almost the exact situation and position.
I don't know what to tell you, I quit three months and never looked back. Apparently the girl before me quit within one month (wonder why) and I was pushed into the job with stacks of leftover work but also with very little training from my boss and it was the busiest period.

She would tell me things like "don't hesitate to ask me anything, it's better that you ask me even hundreds of times if it will make things clear to you" and then the moment I would ask her something second time to just clarify (because there was no fucking training) then she would start rolling her eyes and making drama "Please don't do this to me, I can't explain things the second time, I can't do everything". She was sure to tell everyone how incompetent I was and I felt like a retard. I honestly thought I was a retard and I was lucky to land my second job thinking I would probably perform poorly but nope, I realized the problem wasn't in me, it was the ex boss.

So, however you perform, don't blame yourself. Do your best but in the meantime start looking for another job. You will hate your life if you continue working there. A terrible boss that breathes down your neck will make your life a living hell no matter how nice your coworkers are, and considering that she's best pals with the higher ups you can't do or complain. I was there, trust me.
Also, she called my parents and wanted to let them know how bad I was at work.

There's this one girl I used to be friends with a while back who made a drastic style change shortly after becoming friends with me, telling me I was her "inspiration" and "goals" and such.

At this point she's a fully blown skin walker. I don't claim my style to be completely original but there are my own personal signature elements which she went so far as to even buy the EXACT same copies of. She now pretends it was something original she didn't copy or "take inspiration from" me and started calling it her own unique style, bragging about it almost every day. She's diving me up the wall, not to mention her massive ego about how pretty and special and adored she is. If she was popular at all online she would be complete lolcow material.

I want to call her out on this but we have so many mutual friends and I don't want any drama. Am I supposed to just let her skinwalk as me? I know our mutuals must be able to see the poor imitation she's doing of me but I can't stand it.

>im a virgin so i dont rlly care about sex, im just in love w him
>a day goes by where he texts me "just know I love you" and "You're apart of me"
>next day he says he wants to go back to being friends bc he cant give me the relationship i want bc of his depression, wants me to find someone better
>dont want to be friend zoned so stop talking to him
>miss him and wanna talk so set up a date yesterday where we dye my hair purp in his bathroom like we always talked about

So we caught up and he admitted he dosen't love himself so he cant really love anyone else. He told me he actually dosen't really feel anything right now but he did say he enjoyed video games for the first time in awhile yesterday, which is all he does outside work. I told him I still had a crush on him and how unique and special he is, and that im not interested at all in anyone else

He told me i should move to cali because theres cooler guys there
He wants to move too, but he also said its not likely hell be moving anytime soon

It all comes together in one big combination of skin walking. I've shown the images to other people and had them agree about what she's doing, I don't think I'm a special snowflake but there are some items/combinations that are personal and outside of style norms that I wear which she has purchased replicas of or worn together in the EXACT same way.

Except Kim was explicitly copying Paris. It wasn’t just because it was a “trend” at the time. It’s because Paris wanted Kim to look like an accessory. There are countless examples, that was just one. In others she wore an identical dress but in a different color, or wore the same color are Paris’ accessories.

I wasn’t feeling like myself today, especially when I was called in to cover a morning shift and the cakes I was in charged of, ended up getting banged in the car before they arrived to my job. I get yelled at by my boss, I go home feeling like shit. I wanted to play some games alone but someone invited me to join them instead, I couldn’t say no since i really did want to join him but because I was worried that my bad mood might catch on, I just remained silent. He gets worried, I try passing it off as nothing and find an excuse to leave. Kinda felt bad and told him that I lied and that I just wanted him to enjoy himself without me around. We exchanged messages but they just held the essence of stress in them. My replies ended up being rude and I apologize. I have such a bad habit of apologizing too and I guess I over apologized which got on to his final nerve.
Telling me that it just makes my apologies seem more insincere, i begin to feel even more bad and end up apologizing again until he just flat out says that we shouldn’t talk anymore. I didn’t want to ruin his night anymore and so I said that I agree with him. Deleted our conversation and app

geez anon, I really feel you. The thought of ruining relationships is pretty much 99% of my social life so far, and losing a friend over something stupid and deleting everything feels like Hell.
I wish I could tell you that it's going to be okay and that he'll come back, but that's happened to me before too and they never do. People who hurt you for being sorry or being so unhappy that you want to leave so they'll be happier without you (aka textbook definition of depression) are so vile to be around sometimes. I'm sure they were very important to you, but speaking from experience those people can't even see what you're going through, much less be kind enough to give you space or help you when you need it (which sounds like right now).
What I can say, though, is that just because relationships fall apart, that doesn't mean it's your fault, nor that you should feel bad because of it. You need to take what you got from that relationship, be it a few moments of happiness or some life lessons or social lessons, and be grateful that you had something like that in the first place. I have as close to 0 friends as possible, but I can still look back at the times I had with the people I cared about and say that I have something. And, if you didn't have any of that, getting rid of them was your best option, imo. It's not like you yelled at them or cursed them out; they left you because of something stupid like being sorry. If so, fuck em. They're making you feel like shit over nothing. If not, be happy for what you had and use it later.
Also anon, don't be so hard on yourself. You and only you can be the person who cares about yourself. If you don't put in that effort to be happy, to accept who you are and brush off people being dicks or little mistakes that you make, then you can't expect others to do it for you. It's a hard lesson to learn, and I haven't quite convinced myself, but it's the truth. And it doesn't make you any less of a person just because you feel sorry for yourself, always remember that. Sorry this happened to you, anon.

I just got a text message today asking if I'm still working, and that they got my number from an escort site.

I'm.. honestly scared. I did a reverse search on my number and found nothing so I'm sure it's gotta be one of those more hidden sites that nabbed it but… I just feel so sick.

Thanks anon, it seems you're right.
Looks like the cunt has ridiculous high standards or just wants to get rid of me.

We also had two girls working before me. One was an intern, worked for a full year there and after the internship they offered her to stay. She did, but after a month they fired her because she "didn't meet the standards". ??? They didn't have to offer her the job or anything and yet they pulled that shit.


Today she pulled me out of the office today and went with me to another co worker so she could supervise me while working. It felt like I had a pissed off dog that was about to bite me standing next to me.
I only worked with that coworker twice, and only once did we do that transaction because it was the only opportunity to show me, she can't pull the documents out of her ass. Cunt didn't like the way I worked in the transaction, and got irritated that I forgot the name of it (as if I couldn't look it up in the papers if I was seriously working) after the whole thing she said she'll talk to me later with the boss.

And that she did. She told him how "concerned" she is with my progress and I was basically told to pull my shit together next week or I'm fired. Like what the fuck? I'm NOT making mistakes, I'm just a bit slow because it's only been 3 weeks and it's all new to me.
My actual learning/trial period is 6 months, as it is stated in the contract, and they want to kick me out already. I'd understand if I was constantly fucking up the invoices/orders etc, but I'm not and I'm only on day two of actual work. So ????

I don't really care if I get fired, there are other jobs around but it sucks so much because I like working there but this one cunt keeps fucking me over and it hasn't been a full month yet.

I'm so fucking sick of looking younger than I really am. I'm 20 years old and 5"2 (which is tiny compared to everyone else in my country, I live in the Netherlands). I'm also really into colourful fashion which doesn't really help me. Sometimes I wear more mature clothes but still people look at me like I'm 16 years old and I never get taken seriously. I used to really like my height but I wish I was a few inches taller now.. It's a dilemma, really.

As someone who works in the medical field, the pressure they put on people for certain exams IS a way to make money. You don't need a pap often, especially if you are under 30, and even then it's only really necessary every 4 years or so. If you are on medications then it is important to do check ins and labs, but jfc if I had a nickel for every time I got pressured into doing something that really wasn't medically necessary, I wouldn't have to work. At my check ups, they still to this day pressure me about certain types of BC and when I was ~19 they manipulated me into getting the HPV vaccine when I was not comfortable with it.

Even labs will harass doctors to pester their patients do xyz labs again, when it's up to the doctor's discretion. Be careful with specialists, like GYNs, because they can take advantage of women who don't feel comfortable/are scared and just say yes because they don't know better.

Also, if you are in that much pain, find a new GYN and tell them about your experience. You should not be hurting that much or experiencing those kinds of symptoms after a check up.

No. 250867

>>249869
Also to add, your primary care provider can prescribe BC. They only need you to get checked up on every few years if you are young. It is normal for places like that to send you letters about coming in, but you CAN say no. Honestly, I would tell your GP about your experience, ask for a referral for another place, and they should also be able to fill your BC while you transfer to another place.

My best friend might not be coming to my grandmother's funeral because her mom's birthday is the same day.

I'm trying to be chill, but she was my friend closest to her, helped with taking care of her, and was there with me the last time I saw her. It's not like she's one of the friends just coming to support me, she actually played a large role in my grandma's life.

I know I already complained about that but I'm already sick of ramadan. I've had coworkers asking me if I fast or not, which is already personal enough. But then I had some of these coworkers say that's too bad I don't fast while complaining the entire day about how they're tired, hungry, thirsty, pissed off because they're hungry, etc. So, is fasting a good or a bad thing then? Make up your mind you fucking idiots.

I already expected it but it's more annoying now than when I started my job, which was in the middle of ramadan last year.

I spent the last hour being giddy over what I thought was a good idea, only to realize I had completely misred the scenario.

I looked into one of those betting websites for losing weight.
Initially I thought it was like creating a kickstarter where friends and family donate money to my goal, and I only get the money if I fulfill that goal or lose it all if I don't make it.

Turns out that's not how it works. I could only create host games where other fatties join in the bet and depending who wins, splits that pool of betted money.

I'm really disappointed, I didn't catch that until my second read through because the person's page that I saw the website listed on didn't mention it was a competitive payout against others.

And based on reviews, the profit payout for most games is mediocre at best.
Lol, I thought I was being so clever!
My goal would have been 15% of my weight by fall, which is when I'm going to Japan. I was going to use that money to put into my savings.


I don't know whether to laugh at my naive retardation, or cry…

No. 251101

>>251098
I'll keep looking but I'm running into websites with the same pool betting setups.

Personally I've never made a kickstarter before, suppose I could look into their TOS to see if that sort of thing is allowed.
It's just that the weight loss sites add…something like credibility? For instance, the website I was looking into had internal auditing where you submit a picture of yourself and one on your scale of the weigh in/out. Someone from the website reviews the submissions to make sure you're not bullshitting or cheating. Also none of that would be published for everyone to see.
I liked that because my number is pretty high, and I'm embarrassed for people to know it.

One could say I could just show a graph or something without numbers on the kickstarter, but again, I don't think that website would force me to weigh out. People could probably see that as a problem and donate less for the fact. Shit, if I didnt see someone's numbers I'd probably be skeptical too.
I just don't want it to come off as straight begging.

Family and friends like I said, it wasn't going to be open for strangers because this is personal and I was just gonna share it on my fb. I'm sure strangers don't care about my weight loss, and would begrudge me money towards an international trip as a reward.

I mean I know you weren't trying to be offensive, but you're asking me who do I think I am for asking money for weight loss.
Meanwhile I see youtubers get donations for creating content like unboxing videos, makeup tutorials, cosplay supplies, and pretty much stuff they've been doing on their own dime up until they mustered the gall to ask for money.
And hell, some people give them money just because they ask.

Why not me too, you know? Shit, at least it's for betterment. People always threaten fatties about how we'll wind up costing taxpayers one way or the other, seems like I'm thrice a financial burden on society as a whole if I stay this way or worsen.

Youtubers at least provide entertainment.
Other people wanting money for doing nothing isn’t really a good justification or defense for asking money from people for doing even less. You eating fewer calories is even less entertaining than a product review.

What actual reason is there for anyone to pay you for losing weight? Other than ‘other people get money too’ and ‘it’s only my family and friends’

I’d tell my best friend or my mother to get fucked if they asked for fifty bucks because they lost 20 pounds they needed to lose anyway.

Youtubers aren’t demanding money either. You’ve not provided a single reason as to why anybody shouldn’t would give you money to eat less, and you’re clearly very sensitive to any criticism of this idea so I think you know it’s a pretty foolish and selfish one.

Nobody is going to want to give you their money to not be excessively fat, and it’s honestly bizarre to think that anybody would think it’s a good idea to even ask.

All you’ve done is say you don’t think youtubers should be paid and that you’re not forcing people to give you things. Do you really think that’s a good reason to do something?

I'm watching a documentary series about women killers and it made me want the manhate thread back so bad.

Every last one of them is portrayed in a particularly negative way. The focus is always on the victims and how sad it was that they died, the viewer is encouraged to be outraged by their deaths at all times and nothing else. These women's motives are glossed over or have their importance completely disregarded, they're exposed solely for context. They're never given as a reason for the crime, just as an excuse for a psychopathic woman to kill someone with no remorse. Every single woman is portrayed as a calculating psychopath.

And actually, all of that is absolutely fine. That's absolutely the proper way to go about a crime documentary: making it clear at every turn that these people are in the wrong, that the consequences are devastating, that no amount of subjective suffering justifies murder.

But.
That's never how documentaries about male murderers go. These are women who had regular lives, who were involved with one single instance of murder. Documentaries about male serial killers who did much worse things and openly enjoyed inflicting pain always find a way to make the viewer sympathize with the son of a bitch, or glamorize the whole thing. Or they treat the sob as a complex human being with complex emotions and thoughts, with real motives and desires, with things they believed in that drove them to murder, they're never shown in this pathetic one-dimensional characterization.
This is bullshit. Even murderers get treated as human beings as long as they're male.

Not a single person even entertained the thought that maybe she was telling the truth. They just said over and over that the guy was so nice, such a gentleman, that he loved her so much, he cherished her yadda yadda.

It is sad to read what you wrote. Unfortunately there is no magic cure for situations like these and your only way to deal with this is to set clear goals for yourself and actively work towards achieving them. You either suceed in achieving them or you die trying. The most important thing is to always think positive about your future and lie to yourself that everything will work out in the end.

I hope you will find the strenght to get out of this loop. I think you should give it one last try before actually calling it quits for good.
Good luck and stay strong.

If they dropped me tomorrow it would be business as usual.

I think the one friend genuinely likes me though. She includes me in things without doing it just to piss the other friend off, and reaches out to me. The other one clearly is more of a suck up and a bit shady, that's the one who one-ups constantly and who I'm cautious about.

It's 3.30am where I am and I have to get up at 7am for an exam tomorrow. It's one of my college finals. I'm awake because my stupid fucking brother has been banging on my wall all night and I'm an extremely light sleeper.

He does this all the time when I have an exam. He loves getting into fights and he's just waiting for me to text him or tell him off so he can wake the rest of the house too. He's such a cunt. I'm always quiet when I know someone is studying or sleeping but he's such a spoiled, manipulative little shit and he doesn't care about anyone but himself.

Less than a year ago I spent a week crying about feeling the need to kill myself. My grades were in the shitter and I felt like I had no future. I just had some extremely unstable moods and behaviors in general.

Now I feel really great about my life and I feel rather at peace. My grades are less shitty now, and I've gotten a dream internship beyond my wildest imagination.

But since I'm an anxious person there's a feeling lurking at the back of my mind that something might not be right. Is it really possible for someone to change this much less than a year? I didn't take meds or go to therapy. I feel like people usually say recovering to this extent without any professional help is impossible.

I need to see a therapist but it's hard to get in contact with one. I live with my parents in a shitty satellite city with limited options and have tried looking into online counseling but I'm unsure about it. I used to see this family therapist in high school that I tried getting in contact with recently and he hasn't called me back. I feel like it's because he remembers what a dumb cunt I was and doesn't want to deal with me again.

I am miserable every single day and I wish I had a way out.

I remember the last time I felt happy. I was 15. I remember being happy at home with my mother. I remember going to the shops with her. I remember going on walks. I remember I was doing well in school, I remember I had friends, I remember being okay.
I guess it was when I was 16 when I started falling apart, and never really was able to put myself back together. The subsequent years are filled with so many terrible decisions, which hurt myself and disappointed those around me. And I guess the only reason I can blame for being unhappy is myself.

I think it was three years ago when I made the decision to really be better. I tried to be a better person. I cut out my toxic relationships. I stopped doing cigarettes, weed, even alcohol. I enrolled in college. I got to the root of my problems–from being a star student that never even stayed up late, to a chronic fuck up who could barely wake up in the morning. And I think I realized that I was depressed because I was suppressing the many years of abuse I encountered as a very young child at the hands of the family my dad remarried into. I pushed myself to be better. And I eventually did alright. From an objective standpoint, someone would see a person who is doing well in life.

But every day I feel horribly, terribly alone. I can't connect with anyone. I just feel so apart and so disconnected no matter how hard I try. Life feels like this weird, endless, dark hole; it feels like I'm falling backward into a bottomless pit with no way to stop it.

I realize that happiness is something you have to work at. It's not freely given. And I realize that, by the luck of my own birth, I have resources and opportunities that other people don't. So I exercise. I get enough sunlight. I have hobbies. I eat a plant based diet, I drink lots of water, I have cut out soda and I don't do drugs. I try to stay in contact with people. I push myself to go to school and to volunteer. I keep a diary. I try to fix my negative behavior patterns, I try to recognize when I'm being irrational, I think about how my actions affect others and how my thoughts affect my actions. I ask people for advice. I'm going to see a therapist for the first time in years next week.

But I'm not happy. And it's not even that I'm not happy, it's that I'm profoundly miserable. I hate waking up every single day. I hate that I'm a bad person, I hate how I look, I hate how stupid I am, I hate that I'm a self-centered asshole, I hate I haven't graduated from college yet, I hate that my family sees me as a disappointment, I hate that I can't be a good girlfriend, I hate that I'm a bad friend, and I hate that I constantly do the wrong thing. I hate that every single day I feel hopeless. I have not felt excited about anything in years. I am constantly afraid that the people I love hate me, that they are always talking about me behind my back. I get unreasonably jealous when it comes to my boyfriend and I can often be moody and sullen and emotional. It feels like no one ever does anything unless they can make sure I won't be there. And maybe they're right in doing that–maybe because I'm such an awful, boring, sad person they don't want me to come. But it still makes me feel so much more lonely.

I want to get out of this. I can't keep faking the idea that things are going to get better. I can't keep going when every day I feel worse and worse and I hate the future and I hate the past and I just don't want to go on anymore.

The last time I posted my thoughts about this I was told to sod off and that I was just a whiny, stupid girl. I'm sorry that I'm posting again. I understand that, by and large, there's no reason for me to be sad. I have a family, friends, a boyfriend, a roof over my head, I'm in school, ect. I have everything I need and I try so hard to recognize that and to be grateful for what I've been given. I try to be happy, to make the right decisions. But I can't be. I think there's something wrong with me. I keep making all these stupid decisions and feeling all these stupid sad things and I can't fix it and I don't want to keep trying anymore. I don't feel like it's ever going to get better.

>>251559

Not to armchair, but I feel like her feeling better about her life after getting better grades and a good internship isn't a symptom of bipolar disorder.

"you can get PTSD after one traumatic event like an accident, but you can’t get complex PTSD after one traumatic event. You can get complex PTSD after you’ve been in a traumatizing situation for a long time in which you had the feeling you could not escape. Such a situation can easily last months or years, and often these experiences change your personality. People with complex PTSD can have outbursts of anger, feel always sad, and have suicidal thoughts. Sometimes they can forget about the horrible event, or relive it. They often feel guilty, shameful, helpless and worthless. Those suffering complex PTSD can find it hard to trust others again, and issues with intimacy can arise."

Getting tired of how popular woman hate is now, although i know it's always been around. Seems men talk about it and get a large amount of support for it due to the growing popularity of alternative politics. There's so many videos with millions of views talking about women in a really negative manner with comments that make me honestly scared for my future around these men. It just makes me so angry that I work my ass off to have got where I am in life and some pathetic manosphere on the internet, addicted to vidya and rubbing his small sick to tranny porn thinks I'm beneath him just because I'm a woman. Why are woman trashed and called roasties when i see them out having careers, getting degrees, and accomplishing so much?

Was only talking to my bf recently and he mentioned hating how many YouTubers/streamers he once liked turned out to be alt-right, woman-hating assholes. I hate to sound like a Tumblrina but they're all straight, white men and I think it's a reaction to the rise of good, successful feminist movements. They look at things like #metoo or women's only events or steps towards equality in the workplace and they think "Weeeh but what about me? Feminism doesn't benefit meeee!"

So instead of looking into these movements and trying to understand them or where women are coming from, they push back. It's actually shocking how common it is to see men in support of banning abortion, pushing women out of the workplace, trying to make contraception less available, demanding boys be mollycoddled in the school system (because god forbid little girls are doing better!), men in support of human trafficking and becoming more religious and extremist in general. There's a huge amount of support for that kind of thing online and I feel like lolcow is the only place I feel comfortable anymore due to it being majority female. Even Facebook disgusts me with the amount of men who would have fit in well during the 1800s posting their shitty, toxic opinions with absolutely no fear of society turning on them (their full names, face, pictures of their kids and workplaces…all public).

For most of history this was the life of a man, and now women are acting more like men, which to you is just "being more accomplished" because you have internalised patriarchy. There's a type of feminism that points out that these concepts of career, industry academia etc., were created by men for them to do what men like doing. Women with careers are buying in to the masculine structure. You might not agree but probably men seeing a bunch of women being really good at being men, isn't doing it for them

What careers are you talking about, anon? You choose your career. If you're in a job that you like, that's hardly "giving in to our patriarchal society". There are more careers out there than working in an office, you know. Anyway, what's the alternative to you? Staying home and popping out kids? Cleaning? Cooking? Just because women got stuck with those careers, doesn't mean they enjoy them. In fact, I think the fact that we're getting closer to an equal society and I don't know any stay-at-home moms is a good sign that that's not what women enjoy doing when offered the choice.

i think this is the point of that branch of feminism (i forget what it's called). The idea is women do actually like and enjoy caring, nurturing, raising children and things like cooking, but have been tricked into hating these things because they don't make any money for capitalism. Like the idea is a society where these aren't things that people think are for losers.

I think I got a bad cold. I can't miss a day of my internship or I'll have to do them over and it's a pain to reschedule.
I can't think, I can't work, I just want to sleep.
I'll have to go beg my doctor to give me something and spend 50€ I don't have on it.
I feel like killing myself over it and it's so stupid.
I hope my doctor will at least give me some kind of pain medication so I can be high while I'm miserable.
I don't know how I'm going to take a month of this AND then have to do all the work at the end.

Anyhow, I've personally been in a care giver/nurturer situations and I know that I really don't enjoy them and I also know that I'm not a special snowflake and that there are lots of other women like me that don't like it either.

Besides, all the moms that I know get treated like shit after a short time. It's truly an unthankful job when your husband and kids start taking you for granted and you don't get paid for all the time that you spend nor can you put it on a resume. If you're a stereotypical stay-at-home mom then you entirely depend on your husband and hope that he doesn't ditch you for a younger woman like it usually happens when men get in their mid-life crisis.

I agree with you, anon(s).

I love cooking for myself, but most mothers aren't cooking meals they want to eat nor getting appreciation every time they do it. It's just an expectation in most households.

Cleaning? I love me a clean home. But try picking up after a pig husband and a few brats everyday and it gets tiresome as hell. Another unappreciated daily task that gets swept under the rug because people assume since women silently do it, they must like it.

It's overall boring and tedious.

I'm pretty sure the reason why housewives don't share more of their grievances is because they don't want to be judged for sounding lazy or unmotherly. But it's true. Picking up after people and being their maid day in and out is fucking awful.

However let's not even pretend that women are only expected to be domestic these days. It takes two incomes to keep a household afloat because men no longer bring home a meaningful salary. In addition to being mommies and maids, they now have to work full time or part time too.
There was a study that found women who have a job and then come home to do chores are more likely to be depressed. Because who isn't depressed when they bust their ass at a job only to come home to kids and a messy house? That's UNPAID labor that women are just expected to do to prove how "nurturing" they are.

Enlighten me then.

What happens when children or the husband or both don't reciprocate mother's affection? All that time, all that labor for nothing.

With work, you get experience that makes you more competitive in the job market. With work you get compensated in money. With housework, you get neither.

But I'm sure in your imaginary world traditional families are perfect and no such thing happens. Husbands are always faithful and children are always grateful and women love scrubbing the house clean day after day but the evil jews made stupid women think otherwise, right?

i think you've misunderstood a big part of a lot of feminist ideas about capitalism? a pretty big part of capitalism is relying on unpaid labour at home done by women, who have to also raise children to contribute too. the nuclear family with a doting mother idea is pushed as the natural thing to do because in the long term it's the most successful under capitalism. many, many women have absolutely zero desire to spend their lives picking up after other people but once you've already decided to do what you're encouraged to do and pop out a couple of kids, they have to stick to what their life is for the foreseeable future and make the best of it

Maybe in some places Erasmus students are better, especially in countries that are popular and appealing so more people genuinely interested in an experience of exchange go there. In my dorm everyone hates them because they think they're in some American teenage movie - acting loud and obnoxious, shouting and singing in corridors, knocking on random doors at night, barging into the rooms, intoxicated 24/7. This isn't how real life is. They're here for a little while so they don't care. My uni handles them shittly and they have little to no classes, allowing them to do everything except studying. Dorm security can't speak English, they're useless. The only thing we can do is file a complaint but I'm not sure they even check those. God I hate them. Not like I hate individual humans, but this collective of wild Erasmus students. I was way more tolerant and always defended them until my floor suddenly became Erasmus floor this semester and they put this girl in my room. Now I know.

Damn they sound awful. I studied abroad (not on Erasmus though, out of Europe) and it was super fun because as you say, we had very few classes, and we were in a really nice and safe country so exploring and drinking at night was completely fine, but your situation sounds like a whole other bag of beans.

Maybe try to bring this to the international office at your uni. They should be in contact with the international office from their home uni(s), so if you and other students come forward with complaints about the group, they can relay them to their school which might in turn send them a warning (with possibly the threat of lowering credits or more). If no one ever complains then the next batch of erasmus will be just as bad because they'll have seen the cool party pictures and heard the wacky stories from their seniors and want to do the same, sadly.

I went on a double diploma exchange programme (which meant that my grades would count and I had to take really difficult courses, but was otherwise treated as just another foreign student) and I couldn't do shit because I was too busy whereas Erasmus students partied and got drunk every night, then left during the exam week and would not stop posting those stupid #takemeback photos of all the fun they had and BAWWing on social media whilst we had to work our asses off yet everyone saw us as these dumb party kids.

> Getting tired of how popular woman hate is now

Exactly, it's everywhere now. I posted ITT a while back how thot and thotting are regularly used and applied to virtually every woman, and it's evidently a symptom of a wider and fiercer misogyny, at least online. Everything is a casus belli for a gender war. If a woman does something, it's clearly a sign that all women are like that. If a woman is a bad driver then all women are unfit to drive. If a woman complains about working, then all women have this suppressed desire to become homemakers. One false rape accusation is enough to discredit every rape accusation.

I never see the same amount of visceral hatred towards men when they do something, and even when someone (usually a woman) points out in an article about a guy that abuses his girlfriend or wife, or murders a woman, how men statistically are much more likely to commit such horrendous crimes, then there are numerous accounts that will defend men, saying how it's nothing like that, and that one man does not represent all men. Fair point, but the same apologetic stance doesn't seem to apply to women.

I don't engage in man hating threads and I've been on internet for a long time so I'm pretty much indifferent to misogyny in regular places which is why I noticed this alarming trend of women being insulted just for existing, calls for violence against women on unrelated videos, youtube channels, social media, news comments etc.

What's even more worrying is that it's seen as normal. We're accustomed to it.
If you as a girl don't laugh at such 'remarks' then you're a stuck up bitch. I've also seen other women both ironically and unironically throw the word thot at other women and men cheering. It's all so disgusting and vile.

Slightly off-topic but that reminds me of a guy from my university who went to Japan to study for a year and he wouldn't stop posting about him having fun, him eating in restaurants and McDonald all the time, partying and fucking a bunch of random guys on his tumblr. He bragged about Japanese colleges being way too easy for a genius like him before getting his grades, and it turned out that he failed his second semester. Despite the fact that college in Japan IS easier than the ones in our countries according to all the people I know who studied there. He's notoriously bad for showing off all the time and criticizing people who are at least as competent as him so I thought that was pretty funny.

All the Erasmus and foreign students I met during my classes where really serious about studying and had very good grades, but that didn't stop them from partying. But I can totally imagine others I don't know from my classes being there just for fun and thinking they're on holidays all year long. I wish I were rich enough to study abroad, fuck.

My guess is that the man hating thread is on auto-sage because it attracts unwarranted guests aka robots. tbh it's also annoying when you get other farmers that come in men's defense, even though the OP clearly states it's for anons to vent about their negative experience with men so it doesn't necessarily mean all men, but then you have to explain that to multiple anons that a) don't bother reading the OP, b) don't bother reading the thread or previous posts

So the man hating threads usually becomes a discourse between robots and farmers, where robots keep bringing up stale arguments and some farmers even try to rationalize with them and also a lot of repetitive posts in between "omg I can't believe you can be so mean to poor men!!1"

I'm not sure if I want the man hating thread back because of these reasons. If only people knew how to hide threads hmmm…

Yes, because people who cheat and act like slobs are open about it like that and take no measures whatsoever to conceal it and/or gaslight their partner into believing that it's actually their fault.

With on-the-books work, you aren't the only one getting a cut. The government gets 15.3% of your salary, before income taxes. Your company is probably making something off your labor as well. Unless you like the job, I'd try to pay those institutions as little as I can.

You need to tell him the truth. It's not good for you to suffer to keep someone else happy.
This man needs genuine therapy if he's attempting suicide so often, and it's not on you to keep him from doing so. That's too much stress on anyone. You should definitely be supportive of him, but please don't put your desires aside to keep him 'ok'. You aren't the one to determine if he lives or dies, ultimately it's his decision. He really needs to seek a professional form of help, it's not OK for him to use you as 'life support'. There's a difference between being able to vent, and just using someone to try and 'feel better'.

I mean, I know some people become gross after moving in together but surely people see each other’s homes and then live together before getting married.

It doesn’t seem likely that guys wait for ten years and then suddenly becomes a pig. You’d notice someone who doesn’t pick up after themselves or ever offer to help out while dating them.

Not totally related but imo whoever is home the most should take care of the house regardless of gender. Never ever 100% responsibility, I mean the weekly shit like vacuuming and dusting. Anyone who refuses to do much as pick up their dishes is a dick.

I understand that a lot of women are trapped in situations where they’re being taken advantage of. It’s just the false dichotomy of all men and all women. An all or nothing rule doesn’t work when you apply it to people.

I’m not saying aww poor widdle men are

what are we even fighting about now?

some women enjoy and make better housewives, some women enjoy being a career woman and prefer it over being a housewife, why people are so frickin stuck on screeching at women to become submissive, babymaking, housewives and not focus on their career or that makes them lonely bitter "Carrercels" is beyond me

especially with a world as overpopulated as ours, don't these same dipshits argue about how fucked our economy is.. while encouraging even more overpopulation then there already is just for the sake of tradition because for some reason, if women choose to become housewives or not, offends men if they don't

don't even get me started on the obsession with womens reproduction organs and thinking that if a woman doesn't marry and impregnate herself with the first guy she sees her eggs will turn into raisins, if women are happy with their career or housewife, let them be, who the fuck cares about if they wanna shoot out crotchspawns or not, there's 7 billion people in the world, even if half of women chose not to reproduce the human race still won't die out, if that's even what they're worried about but I doubt it, rather they're just arguing about women not all choosing to be submissive housewife fairies

I moved in another country a month ago to work as au pair, officially for a year. My friends and family think I'm living the life, since I post a lot of travel pics on instagram, but the truth is that I'm feeling fucking miserable. The job is stressful, the pay is shitty, especially compared to the high prices of stuff here, the child I'm looking after is Satan's daughter herself and I'm far from the people who love me. I'm already making friends, but it's still that shallow level of friendship that doesn't make you feel actually loved. During the night I often dream of being at home, in my bed, then I open my eyes and see this room. Every day there's at least 5 minutes where I start sobbing like a baby. I scroll through my sister's profile and I start crying. My mom calls me on the phone, I see her name on the screen and start crying. I recall the last day before moving, the coffee with my best friend and the cake that my sister made, and I start crying. During the day I'm often feeling tired, don't talk much, and go to bed at 10 pm hating everything that made me do this choice. I spent a lot of money for this travel and I'm regretting every bit of it. It's been just a month but it seems like an eternity to me.
Now I'm stuck in this situation where if I go back home I won't be this stressed anymore and will have my friends and family back, but my hometown is also Bumfuckville itself, there's no jobs and no future. While if I stay here I might be able to find roommates and another job (since the % of me actually doing the au pair job for the entire year are extremely low) and also my miserableness might just be a phase of adjusting to a new place.
Anyone here has ever been through the same thing? Are my feelings normal and "just a phase" or should I be taking them more seriously?

That sucks Anon. I feel you. When moving abroad for a while, I went through the first phase of being super happy, loving the feeling of being a little jetlagged and finding everything fantastic even though it's not that different from home, then starting to be homesick and daydreaming about coming home every day. Then I started hanging out with people my age (and mostly from the same country) and I felt a lot happier and more carefree.

You probably have very little free time but maybe get back into a hobby you usually have at home, to get out of the "I hate this place" rut I'd spend days painting in my room and it helped me remember things can be fun even if I'm in a country I don't like.
Also I think it gets harder right after one month (so right where you are) because the novelty of being abroad has worn off? So maybe it will get a bit easier as time goes on.

Also I get what you mean about friendships being superficial. Like even though I fucking loved going out with my friends abroad, we're hardly in contact anymore. Hell, it was a bit awkward to meet up again with some of them back home lol. But even this shallow, just for fun friendship is better than nothing imo. Also I'd recommend meeting people from your own country if you can, or people in similar situations. There might be facebook communities like "Xians in (country)!", or "Au pairs in (country)". Could be nice to see you're not alone.

Sorry for rambling, not sure if this is even helpful. I wish you a lot of courage and good feelings though, stay strong!

Went through something similar anon when I did my masters degree. Moved up North but I was the only person on government grants and could only afford the shittiest, most dirty horrible place to live with 30 other people (immigrants mostly who were noisy and aggressive all hours of the day). The room was tiny - just a bed and a chair. The tap water made me sick. It was constantly being broken into. Like being in prison. Had no friends or family nearby and everyone at uni was really snobby.

That was only a year too, but my mental and physical health really suffered that year - I had to go back on medication, my hair fell out in clumps and I got diagnosed with stress-related IBS which I still deal with. It wasn’t worth it for the mediocre degree I got (turns out I struggled to focus in an environment like that). I cried every single day, it was so stressful. Going home at the end knowing I would never have to go back was the most amazing feeling.

So anon, I would stick it out if you truly can cos a year is a short time in the grand scheme of things, but if you’re just doing it for appearance’s sake or because home is boring, then what’s the point? Seriously, it’s not worth your health or happiness, and there’s no reason you can’t do it later on in life if you regret going home. Everyone tells you these things are the time of your life and amazing opportunities, but only because it seems like the right thing to say.

Only you can know for sure whether you can tough it out but remember that life is long and you can always try again when the circumstances are better. Feel better soon anon x

I only took 10 minutes to apply with very few products and I hardly ever wear makeup anyways. I told my father he's the one who's always pointing out how ugly or fat women are in public and that men say women shouldn't put on makeup and then complain they're ugly without it.

Usually I'm fine with shitposting since I would do it myself every once in a while but no these members are always posting the same overdone jokes/memes/seizure gifs every single day. Giving them warnings doesn't work since the other two useless mods always enable their behavior and spamming.

I feel bad the most for those members who do nothing wrong and just want to have discussions/fangirl over fandom stuff but these fucking spergs always ruin it with their nonsense.

Oh and just want to mention these spergs are in their late 20's . Yet act and write like 12 year olds with the "zomg so randumz XDDD" humor

I feel petty sometimes for getting worked up over it, but this server started as a pretty fun place to share headcanons/fanworks/ideas but is just been going downhill since this group joined that contribute absolutely nothing but nooo I'm the buzzkill I guess for wanting to keep things organized.

Thanks anons. I noticed that when I stay at home I tend to feel like shit. Tonight I chilled in the garden with the house cats a little bit, while the sun was still up and felt instantly better. I think I need more friends and more time outside. I'm almost there though, I have three aupair friends near me (all of my nationality), when I'm with them I feel more like at home. Wouldn't mind foreign friends either though. If so many girls go for a year abroad, girls with closer families than mine, I might make it too. Fingers crossed!

I'm so damn angry at myself. I could have a very nice life, but still never feel happy.

My room is super nice, my family is lovely and I'm somewhat smart. As a child I was so happy, had many hobbies, friends, I was athletic and the best in my class.
I don't feel suicidal or even really depressed, but I can't remember the last time I was truly content.
My biggest problem is a kind of mentality that I've had for a few years already: Not now, tomorrow.

Just having to do something little like a phone call is enough to ruin my whole day.
I don't like going to classes, but I would be okay with it as long as I don't have to study for an exam or prepare a presentation, he annxiety because of this is enough to make me feel down for weeks.
Sometimes my dad making a 'mean' joke destroys my mood for the rest of the day.
Whenever I go to Uni I constantly compare myself to all the pretty and happy girls there, it feels as if my looks are the only thing i thought about for the last 10 years. But instead of doing something to improve myself, like going on a diet or even just doing little hygenic things like brushing my teeth I always think 'tomorrow'.
'Tomorrow I'm gonna study'. I wouldn't need to study a lot when I actually start or do something at all, I manage to get it done quite quickly, yet I still dread it so much every single time.
Or when some girls at Uni start talking to me I always think 'Not now, not this week, today I look ugly, I barely slept, I don't feel confident enough to talk more to them, next time I'll try my best.' But of course that never happens.

I'm wasting so much time. No idea what I'm waiting for. That I wake up tomorrow and magically feel all better? No idea…

I've suffered from depression for six years now. The level of depression I suffer is pretty extreme, at the worst I experienced extreme depersonalization and started hearing voices in my head. I've for the most part got it under control.

My mother insisted I tried hypnotherapy. I didn't think much of it and just humored her along, saying I'd give it a shot if she thought it would help. She paid for a session and we went. The problem is the session made me extremely angry. We were both present together during the first session and I felt uncomfortable and angry at being pushed to talk about my problems with my parent present…I don't mean to disparage my parent, but my mum has a certain attention seeking problem when it comes to anything medical. She started talking about my problems and how sick my brother was and how that is why this was happening, drinking up the attention as this turned into a 'poor her' moment. I put a stop to it and insisted they remained on topic. I went to the toilet half way through and she chimed in with 'oh he always does this when he is stressed' and laughed about it, I honestly just needed to go. There wasn't any hypnosis during the first visit.

I left feeling angry and drove home in a rage, smashing the steering wheel the entire trip. I rang her and told her I wouldn't go again and would insist on getting her money back. She got angry against me and started going on about how I refuse to get better or try.

I feel fucking stupid for even humoring her. I basically feel unironically triggered anytime I hear anyone mention a sick child because I remember the years of abuse I had to endure with her laughing and bringing to attention my 'autism' and my little brother's illness at social gatherings. One time my little brother burst into tears at a christmas party where mum was joking about how anorexic he was because he didn't eat much (due to the cocktail of drugs she pressured doctors to put him on, mind you, he was a normal kid and didn't at all have ADHD.). The whole family tried explaining it to her then and she didn't get it. I feel fucking stupid for putting myself in this situation.

I'm really angry at myself.

A few days later this "Chromium" popped up in my programs and I couldn't uninstall it. Kind of just assumed it was something Google automatically installed and ignored it. Another few days pass and my anti virus detects a fucking Trojan. Searched online for ways to uninstall it and tried them all. Every fucking day I feel like I've finally gotten rid of it and then the fucker pops up in my programs again the next day. I'm just so fucking angry I did this to my laptop.

This is probably not worthy of a vent but I ordered cat food and it all arrived well. The thing is that the delivery guy was really my type. Usually, the delivery guys are older men, balding and fat so I don't care about putting up an appearance, but this time I wasn't expecting a delivery this fast so I looked horrible. And just when I looked my worst, this handsome delivery dude, exactly my type, rings my bell. When I saw him through the door glass, I wanted to vomit.

I had stinky old sweatpants and a sweaty shirt from working out, my hair wasn't combed and I had my old librarian glasses on.

I bet he's laughing with his codelivery dude about a crazy stinky cat lady. Fuck.

But you should have seen him, he was exactly my type, he looked like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo just more handsome.

I started autistically screeching after I shut the door and he probably heard it too.

People telling you to "eat a cheese burger" is a common insult towards smaller people. But I just think that's retarded, eating cheese burgers has nothing to do with gaining weight.

Dear skinny anons, I truly believe you (as much as I believe that the opposite exists: women who live very healthily and don't "deserve" being chubby at all, but can't help it).

But being skinny is THE beauty standard in nearly every society on this planet. So having a fast metabolism is something the vast majority (of women) would kill for. You're very, very lucky.
So can you really blame anybody for not being able to sympathize with your vent and not being able to feel sorry for you?

However, she desperately wants to put on weight and is taking all sorts of pills. I can't believe the amount of self hate she has for her body. I keep telling her that she is beautiful and that she should be happy that she doesn't need to watch her weight as many women do, but she just keeps saying that she feels unwomanly, unfeminine.

Isn't it more like being thin/skinny is the beauty standard? Because as a skinny woman I've been told some weird shit about my appearance, like random family friends and relatives thinking I had an eating disorder or telling me to get surgery to get bigger breasts because I'm such a lost cause that I could be reimbursed for it by my health insurance (which is possible actually). People do make the difference between skinny and thin in my experience, kind of how people know there's a difference between being chubby and morbidly obese.

>Being told to eat more, etc. is still a billion times better than being fat and all the problems and disadvantages that stem from it.

If the problems that come with being fat is that people tell you to eat less and make other similar remarks and actions against you then it's the same problem in the first place.

Uhm yes, that's exactly what I said lol. But no, I get what you're trying to say. Think of it like this: let's say the ideal BMI is 18, that's not stick thin, but still model-tier. So, even if you have a BMI of 16, which is already dangerous, you're a lot less far away from the ideal than a women who has a BMI of 24 - which isn't even overweight.

Of course some peple will tell you that you look gross if you're too skinny. But the majority only voices some fake concerns like "Eat more!", whereas overweight people are much more likely to get bullied as children, have disadvantages while applying for jobs, having problems finding a partner, and so on. You can easily mask if youre a little to bony, but nothing can magic away extra pounds.

And let's be honest, would you rather have people telling you to eat a burger and some petty women being jealous or have people snicker behind you're back and call you a disgusting landwhale, etc. Just look at how it is on this site: even if it's totally unrelated, you're always immediately called a fatty.

I have a friend who also always got the ana comments, but now she loves her weight. She eats everything she wants, can enjoy her life, she fits into everything and many guys simply are really into very thin girls.
Whereas fat girls might fight all their life against their weight, always have to hold back, feel limited in what they can wear blah blah.

I think having a BMI of 24 is more common than 16. So some people will find a woman with a BMI of 16 harder to look at I think, if we're talking about this specific example. But that's just one example.

Both seem equally bad. Even though I'm skinny I don't fit in the standard of beauty at all for a bunch of reasons not related to weight and that I can't even potentially change so I've never had anyone be jealous of me and I used to be bullied as a kid too for these things because children are horrible. I think it'd be more accurate to take other criteria into account when talking about specific people so here I'm talking about myself as I can't speak of others but I really can't relate to anything you say about skinny women even though they do apply to SOME skinny women.
>Whereas fat girls might fight all their life against their weight, always have to hold back, feel limited in what they can wear blah blah.

Four and a half years ago I had two excision surgeries to remove a breast cancer tumor. As a result that breast, which was already smaller, is now half the size of the other. It is a D cup with a deeply recessed crater of a scar while the other is a full F. I cannot find any bras that fit, so I go without. My clothes fit terribly. I have had to abandon half my wardrobe when before I used to design and make clothing. The heavier breast exacerbates my scoliosis and the existing disc and nerve problems in my neck and shoulder.

I could pursue breast reduction, but I am afraid of further surgeries. I had a bad post-op infection and hematoma after the second excision. I am also afraid of taking opioids after surgery. I had developed a hardcore addiction to them after being on them for over three years straight.

I have also been avoiding my follow up mammograms. I have only gone for one when I am supposed to go yearly.

My ovaries were removed as part of my treatment. The sudden loss of hormones has aged my body and altered my identity. There is an immense emptiness where my physical, intellectual, and emotional passions used to be. My pervading mood is Fuck It. Fuck It All.

Sometimes I hope the cancer comes back and kills me.

I never said I was normal. It would be nice to have a female friend to smoke a joint with now and then. I also never claimed to be perfect, I was just stating that I am not borderline. I am self aware and like I said, none of my friendships have ended destructively, my older female friends and sisters have moved on with children and family duties. I'm not saying I'm perfect, I mentioned my exercise routine, and hobbies on top of my education to explain that I am not an unstable person and that the drugs are not a reflection of the person that I am. Maybe craving drugs to cure boredom is unhealthy, but I am definitely not borderline, nor am I perfect.

Currently pregnant (unplanned). Baby daddy tried to coerce me into abortion, then changed his mind and wanted to play happy families, then broke up with me and fucked his friend who he’s “always loved”. They’re together now. I’m not heartbroken, just bitter that I got involved as he was a shithead from the start. I hate that my self esteem was so low I let him fuck me over and on reflection, I didn’t even like him

Ex before him is saying he wants to try with me and raise the kid together. He probably treated me worse than BD in the way that he was more into actively hurting me than just neglecting me. He admits he was abusive but says he can change. He’s been great the past few weeks and I do love him but I just can’t. Like I get that he cares a lot and is willing to try but he has a low tolerance level and I don’t imagine he’d survive supporting me through pregnancy, let alone raising a kid

i hate being on medication for my depression. i only take 2 (lexapro and remeron) and i've been slowly weaning myself off lexapro but i cant stop with remeron. instead of sleeping all the time i'm the opposite where i'll go days functioning on 3-4 hours of sleep because my insomnia is so bad. i've fallen asleep a few nights without it, but usually when i dont take it i panic because i'm afraid i'll get back into the cycle of being awake all the time (which may sound irrational but having gone 3 days with only about 2 hours of sleep, it is fucking awful). I knowwww i need to talk to my doctor but i really don't like talking about it during appointments other then the whole "yes i'm not suicidal yes i need a prescription refill". my university has free counseling and i feel like i need to go, but they're always so awkward and its so hard for me to open up about stuff. i've been trying stuff on my own like journaling but i just….want…to get off meds so bad and i feel like i'm becoming too dependent on them to fall asleep

Anon, if it's not too late, an abortion is the best bet, you do not sound ready to have a child.

I suggest you take time to work on yourself and maybe get some counselling. The last thing you need to do is pursue a relationship. I know it sounds easier said than done, but I suggest you keep away from your exes. If it's too late for an abortion, look into being a surrogate for someone/adoption. You need to try and educate youself and going from relationship to relationship will stop your personal growth.

I hope it all works out in the end.

I struggled with this for years and I know some anons will roll their eyes, but forcing myself to wake up early helped my sleep pattern a load. If you can, try and get some cardio and sunlight, it helped my insomnia so much and the cardio was fucking awful but I started doing it every second day, and I started to notice sleep pattern changes by the second week. I weened myself of seroquel and it was hell, but I was almost back to normal the second month.

One more tip that has helped the actual quality of my sleep and I swear by this…drink about 450mls of water before bed. I don't wake up groggy the next day at all and actually feel refreshed from the sleep.

Getting loads of plastic surgery or fillers is questionable, but even then, there is people who just like to change their appearance, not even from insecurity,they just like the way it looks.

Also, the other anon said she smokes a joint when her best friend comes into town, not regularly like you stated.

Instead of

>drugs are bad you fucking idiot, you are not normal


The anon in question didn't even say that they were doing drugs. If you actually read the intial vent, they stated they had been sober for 2 months and wanted to act on these things.

Also, I think a lot of people are bias about the subject. Not every person becomes addicted to drugs, and drugs like weed and psychadelics are fine for some in small doses for recreational use.

The anon venting probably shouldn't do them as their vent implies that they have an addictive personality, but all the people here acting like sharing a joint with a friend once in a blue moon is destructive really sound ignorant and sheltered.

Do I believe mind altering drugs should be taken every day?
No.

Should people prone to depression smoke weed or take drugs?
Probably not.

But to make the assumption that every person who smokes weed or god forbid gets cosmetic fillers is a crazy psycho who is not 'normal' is a generalization and very ignorant.

>we all learned that drugs are bad at school, there's noone here that doesn't know that already


Yeah, okay, yet there's a whole thread where farmers talk about their drug use and experiences, so maybe you shouldn't try and speak for everyone? Instead of shaming someone for something you have no idea about.

Are you seriously trying to say that anons who buy and take drugs don't know that they're bad…? Of course they know and yet they do it, what more is there to say? They might try to tell themselves that it doesn't harm them or that weed isn't really a drug anyways, but initally all of them were warned - if not at school, at least the fact that all of these substances are illegal should be enough to stop them.
Also 'shaming' somebody who does drugs? Unless you grew up in a druggie household and started injecting at 12 I'm not gonna feel sorry for you.

>Sorry if I sound angry, just annoyed that people just type a flat out insult/judgement, without offering any advice or just being kind in general.

Quite hypocritical I must say… My inital post was written very calmly despite you being 'mean' to the anon above me and now you still act as if stating that kids get told drugs are bad = trying to speak for everyone. Not exactly 'kind' either…

But it doesn't matter anyways.
The only person I ever knew who smoked weed (no idea where you live that this is seen as something so normal and many do it…) got her whole life ruined because of it. So no matter how many try to tell me that it's harmless, it did enough damage to her.

I started smoking weed at 21/22. I was abused growing up. I went on antidepressants at 26 and came off them in Feb after a year on them and they fucked with my memory, focus and metabolism. I feel much better off of them.

I study pharmacology and tbh I'd much prefer to treat myself with a plant that we've evolved along side of with a system of receptors designed specifically for cannabis molecules. I was at a very low point in my early 20s and to be perfectly honest if I didn't start smoking weed I'd probably have done what a few in my family have.

I'm pretty sure my family are susceptible to depression and weed keeps me lifted and motivated. I've done shrooms and LSD. The LSD did nothing for me not sure if it was what I took, but I never felt the desire to try again. The shrooms sorted me out, I only do them like a couple of times a year if even and they always give me a clarity and opens me up to be more receptive.

Coke and meth I've tried. I hated both and the coke made me extremely angry, I never did anything on them but I told those I was around it was making me very angry. I just watched TV and smoked weed til it the effects went away. I'm not a big drinker since it usually depresses me.

A number of psychotics are used to treat mental illnesses. The man made drugs are standardised while human biochemistry is not. It's like finding a needle in a haystack at the moment if you want to treat yourself with antidepressants that's why several therapies are used along side. I've had a number of different therapies performed by a therapist, but I can't erase my past and that's what fucks me up. I understand it happened and I can't change it, but I can't change my innate reactions to things now since my abuse happened from ages 7-19. I reckon if i didn't smoke weed at 21/22 I would never have had the motivation to stick at employment and not give up on myself because I nearly have several times

No matter what I say, you won't change your opinion and seem to never stop, probably unless I convert to smoking as well.

I do take meds when I'm ill and so far nothing happened, so I'll continue to trust my doc, period. By that logic 90% of the the world's whole population would be addicted to meds.

How is me giving an example of my friend's life going to shit because of weed any less "legit" than that guy you know and your brother's getting ruined because of prescription meds?

I learned at school that even taking 'light' drugs like weed can damage your brain longtime - harder drugs are obviously way worse. And therefore I think it's wrong, irresponsible and dangerous to risk that happening just for fun or art.
Sorry, but I trust my former teacher more than girls on an anonymous board telling me that it's fine and harmless.

I'm stressing now and I don't know what to do
I've been working every day at my job since we're so short staffed…we lost five people in a month and 3 more are trying to leave
My boyfriend is moving out of the house without me while I stay behind
And now his father just came up to me about his sister buying the house to rent it

He said something about her renting it to us but I don't think my boyfriend is going to go through with it
But if he doesn't and the house ends up getting sold I'm going to be homeless
So now on top of work stress I need to prepare for the worst and find something
I have horrible shitty credit so I don't think I will and I'm trying to not freak the fuck out

Found out my crush of several years likes someone else. Instantly was sick. Not even mad at him because if I was him I wouldn’t like me either. I’ve spent all day crying feeling ugly & worthless. I don’t live with anyone & I’m not close with my family & my friends that I can count all on one hand aren’t too fussed other than replying they are sorry for my feefees & ditching their phones to go do something better. I posted vaguely depressing shit on social media hoping someone would help make me feel better but everyone just ignores it because they are used to my 3edgy5u antics and just think it’s part of my persona… but it’s not (my own sister even watched my story and hasn’t asked me if I’m ok LOL).

I’m super angry with my job. I work full time and I know I should be thankful for that, but I’m tired of feeling like I do more work then I’m paid to do. I’m a graveyard shift, so everything the other shift doesn’t do I end up doing all by myself ontop of my own job.
So I do a lot more, get paid less. I’m always there to help out and cover shifts when the other graveyard can’t show up for their two nights! Two fucking nights they have to work. One time I got called in 2 in the morning cause they couldn’t finish their shift so I get punished for being a team player! My boss used my sick hours to cover the four hours I worked. Then this week he is making me take a day off so it counted balances the holiday paid I would get!

Well guess who calls in tonight! The other graveyard and he has the balls to call me to cover it! If I went in he would use my vacation hours to cover me coming in. Basically I would be working for free. He is all Butt hurt I said no! Acting like I never help! Why would I when he is doing illegal shit so he doesn’t have to pay me overtime or holiday pay?

That headache sounds like a tension headache. Probably exacerbated by the things you've mentioned above. I get them often in my current job (trying to jump ship but jobs are hard to come by where I live) because I work a very physical role and a lot of the work is left for me to do which I am not happy about. The headaches make it harder and completely wipe me out. I know it sounds really dumb, but try going for a facial massage if you can, or give yourself one. I oil my face up with a skin friendly oil and go to town. There are lots of videos on youtube that show good techniques, but I find that if I rub between my eyebrows quite firmly and up into my hairline, it slowly eases the pain away. Sometimes I wiggle that area side to side with firm pressure from my thumb, in mini circles too.

I want to be thin and beautiful but I also love food. I've had this 8 year struggle with my weight due to comfort eating, stress, yo-yo dieting, trying to starve myself, having a mother with an ED who tries to "help" me, not having any hobbies other than eating because they frustrate me and being unable to refuse food. I've been to doctors and counsellors briefly but honestly I just don't have the money for that. I don't know how to fix my problem. I'm terrified I'm going to be overweight and self conscious for the rest of my life. I'd love to lose weight before I go on holidays for the summer or before I start working but it seems impossible.

I'd start hanging out with them at the same time (they actually get along very well), but one of the friends is pretty flirty with me (he just likes teasing me a lot and calling me cute, it's kinda nice), and I know it wouldn't go down well with my boyfriend if he had to hear it.

You're right. I just have no idea how to go about it. Telling my bf "Hey, before we meet up, this friend says flirty things sometimes, but he doesn't mean it, he has a girlfriend himself.

Just curious but what kind of stuff does he say? Is your bf really insecure, or they are legit worrying jokes. Also if he has a gf, why not go on a double date or invite them both to your place so your bf feels more comfortable? That way if you and your guy friend hang out he won't get upset.

No. 254626

>>254611
Eh…It's a bit of both. He's naturally insecure and admits it, but I wouldn't really blame any guy if he bristled at some of the things the friend says. It basically just toes the line. For a tamer example, I called something cute and neat at one point, and he said something like "You're a cute NEET" (though I'm not even really a NEET). He also talks about my awkwardness being "adorable" a lot, and we sometimes talk about porn/sexual stuff (my bf actually does the last one with one of his female friends, but I'm pretty sure it's the one that'd worry him the most just because it's me).
A double date might be a good idea. I've never actually met his girlfriend, but I'll see if I can make things happen.

>>254601
Yeah, I'll try to set things up with him and some other friends instead. Kind of a shame, since my bf liked this guy a lot initially. They'd make a good pair of friends.

No offence anon, and I'm trying not to judge your friend because I don't know him or the full situation, but your mate sounds a bit creepy. None of my male friends would say things like that, with the exception of one who later told me he used to have a massive crush.
I no longer trust this friend because he comes across as the type that is waiting for me to break up so he can collect the scraps. He seemed like a harmless jokey friend too and I thought i knew him, but he did/said all kinds of things that were red flags.

My other male friends know this kind of behaviour isn't right and would never call me 'cute' or talk about porn because they know I have a bf. Sex talk is fine, but I do think it's a bit inappropriate with someone who calls you cute as a joke or with your male friends.

Ask yourself, would you be cool with your bf hanging with his best friend she's joking that he's cute, and talking about porn together?
If not, then you can see what I mean.

Maybe your friend isn't a creep and I'm seeing things that aren't there, but if he's that important to you, perhaps he's the one you actually have chemistry with and he should be your boyfriend? If not, then you probably should talk to him about not talking that way when the boyfriend is around.

I am not jusging you, I often find it nice when a customer/random flirts with me or calls me cute. I even feel a bit guilty even though I woukd never cheat, sometimes I want to joke/flirt back. I wouldn't feel the same way if it was a friend though, I'd feel as if there is ulterior motives.

And the motherfuckers keep sending me a bill for $45.

My online friend who I've known for a few years now is getting awful pushy about video chatting.

I'm fine with text/IM chatting, but he wanted to cam call last week and that's annoying as fuck to me because then I have to do my appearance and sound/act like sun is coming out my ass. Otherwise he'd feel bad that I'm not in a good mood.
It's a huge pain because I work call center and I'm sick to death of talking constantly and being sweet on the phone. On my days off I just want to chill.
Meaning…I don't wanna fuck with people who think they're entitled to my god damn time! It's my time, every mcfuckin' second of it.

Anyway, he got me to jump through hoops to try to make this video call work. My laptop is from 2010 so its connection is shitty and literally most programs (like skype) are not supported anymore even with the newest updates. The browser versions don't work, not even discord. And the Facebook video calls kept dropping.
So after an hour of downloading/deleting/etc. I told him I was done and logged off.
After that I was busy catching up on chores, resting, and preparing for an irl friend to come visit.

Apparently he wanted to chat more and I promised this? I honestly don't recall, and I didn't see a notification from him on fb since so I figured we'd talk in a few more days like usual.
BUT I was mistaken. I saw a message from him today and it was ripping me for not coming back last week and trying to cam again.
I apologized, but low key I'm irritated.
>"It's almost like you don't want to talk to me."
Bingo dude. I wasn't in the mood, clearly.

My best friend of 9 years is so different now thanks to her piece of shit bf. We had a falling out last year and started talking again after about 4 months, and in that time she turned into a completely different person.

I hate absolutely everything about him and to see her act exactly like him hurts me so bad. She was the only real friend that I had.

Put my two weeks notice in at my new job. The women that I'm working with are so incredibly rude. I'm probably just a pussy, but I've cried after every single shift there so far. I'm debating on if I should actually finish my two weeks or just not show up for the rest. Everyone keeps saying that I should finish and that they'd be "so proud of me." But I'm having trouble even getting out of bed in the mornings to go. I feel pathetic knowing that it's hard for me to do something so simple and go to work like everyone else has to.

My bf's friends have also been driving me nuts lately. I know that they all don't like me very much, and I always feel bad whenever my bf tries to convince me that they do. Especially since it's so obvious that they don't. I feel like they don't just because I'm not into smoking weed (mainly because I can't get over the taste), but that's a pretty dumb reason lmao. There's this new girl in the "group" that has tried to hit on my bf with me present and I guess apparently no one likes her (based on the way they were talking about her) but yet she still gets invited to everything and I don't. I know why, but I'm still super bitter about it. I wish she would just gtfo and I just wish that they would all like me but whatever. There isn't much I can do in this situation.

Also school and student loans but I haven't even been accepted yet so idk yet with that stuff.

This all feels so stupid to be upset about but I've got no one to talk to except for my boyfriend. I'm so stressed out about everything that I've been getting sick almost everyday. Idk what to do anymore.

I'm sorry you're going through such a rough time. I'm so happy that you had the courage to give your two weeks notice, though ! Ive been debating giving my two weeks notice but I always end up feeling guilty.
If you're interested in making new friends maybe try picking up an MMO? FFXIV has a great community. Otherwise there's the friend finding thread, too.
If your friend has been changing and neglecting you she isn't worth worrying about. Especially if it's painful to do so.

This site has intensified my body dysmorphia tenfold. Every time I come on here, I find a new flaw being picked apart on a cow and see the same flaw on myself. Before I started coming here I struggled, but now it’s so much worse.

I don’t even go out anymore and besides my 2 hour ocd morning makeup regimen, I can’t look in a mirror without having a panic attack, or crying. It’s ruining my life. I can’t walk outside my bedroom without a full face of makeup to hide my flaws (nasolabial folds, eye bags, ugly lips, saggy skin, now I’m convinced I’m developing jowls) I’m only 23.

I isolate myself and stopped taking pictures of myself, I don’t let others include my ugly face in pics either. I used to believe I was pretty hot because people always said I was, and I got hit on non-stop whenever I left the house, but people don’t comment on my looks much anymore and I’m hit on a lot less. Can’t figure out if it’s because I’m ugly and old looking now versus how I was at 20/21, or if it’s part of growing up.

Last week I spent 3 days in bed with every light off, every mirror covered, and cried while searching for cosmetic procedures. I now cry as I wake up and start my obsessive skincare and hair/makeup routine that I have no control over anymore and can’t stop myself from doing, even though I know I must look ridiculous being constantly excessively dolled up.

I need help but I’m too embarrassed to seek it.

And I mirror check constantly. I have to make sure my hair and makeup is “perfect” all day, I’ll even bring a bag of makeup and tools to fucking work or out and excuse myself to hide and fix myself. I get sucked into any reflective surface only to be disgusted with myself. I think everybody talks about how weird I look.

Sometimes I think about seriously harming myself, like pouring acid on my face or setting myself on fire or just cutting my face apart

No. 255011

Perspective: Maybe people aren't complimenting your looks as often because the opportunity doesn't arise, per se. I mean if you're isolating yourself and not being in many pictures, nobody can ever really comment. When you were more confident I bet you got out more and interacted with more people because you didn't feel like an ugly sack.
I would know.
For almost two years I shut myself in my apartment except to go to my job, gained 80 pounds, and even now I hate all pictures of myself and dread social gatherings.

A lot of the hate for how I look comes from within me. Other people are used to how I look or don't care, but that's really hard for me to accept because I'm so convinced I'm hopelessly fat and unlikable, and the negativity here is like an echo chamber for it.

I have a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder and I've had it for two years and it hasn't gotten better. I was seeing a psychologist (they were the ones to diagnose me) and they eventually told me I only wanted to be coddled and obviously didn't want to get better. Which is the cruelest thing I've heard come out of their mouth since I had seeked them out since I was tired of being anxious 24/7 and knew something was wrong with me. And I was seeing them once a week for about 6 months till they said this. They weren't giving me any coping mechanisms I hadn't already tried and I had told the psychiatrist that the coping mechanisms weren't helping as much anymore. The breathing techniques were helpful for when I head an anxiety attack and my chest would start aching but everything else was just. "Write down your feelings, keep telling yourself that you can do this when your anxiety tells you otherwise, set goals for yourself. When you get anxious try to imagine yourself somewhere you feel safe." And I was writing in a journal daily, setting goals for myself and trying to be all "yeah I got this" whenever my anxiety would cause me to doubt myself.

Since then I haven't gone back nor have I gone to see another mental health professional because I'm so scared I'm going to get treated like that again. I've also had bad experiences with my doctor, the meds they gave me for my anxiety increased it to where I felt full of nervous energy and I was sleeping 2hrs a night at most because I'd be high-key anxious all day and night. I had a really bad anxiety attack the fifth day of taking the meds due to external circumstances. And I called my doctor and told them I wanted off of them and explained why. They had me come in immediately and I went, still having my anxiety attack and they treated me like I had to be put into inpatient because I was crying so much and so anxious. This was after explaining that my anxiety was never this level till I started the meds. When I refused inpatient (which when they offered that as a solution, only FURTHERED my anxiety and I burst into a fresh round of tears and shaking.) They had another doctor come in and try to talk me into it and they were really pushy and tried to say I had issues with mental health professionals and I just was speechless because my doctor knew I was seeing my psychologist at that time and infact they were in contact because psychologists can't prescribe meds and they were working in unison to try and get my anxiety balanced.

So I have a major distrust of both doctors and mental health professionals due to my experiences and I'm so scared to reach out for help again. I have this guy I'm interested in rooting for me to go and I can't ever explain the deep well of dread I feel when it comes to even thinking about seeing another mental health professional. He tells me that I just have to go and I know he's right but if the kind of stuff that happened before happens again I feel like I'll break apart.

I get hit on when I'm

-Happy, calm
-Not worried about what's going on around me
-Not looking at everyone, just sorta existing and doing my thing

My natural state now is looking at everyone in the eye, being aware of my surroundings, not enjoying myself and just being serious. I don't get hit on (which is good because I don't want it) but when I forget myself and relax I start to get the creepers again

Being confident and happy is the biggest way to look good. And then being relaxed, friendly and uncritical is the easiest way to get guys to come up to you. you pointed out that your attitude has completely changed - in one year? I promise you that you look the same. The only thing different is the attitude.

Being self conscious is something I used to be too, which my sister mistook for vanity and would get annoyed when I would check my makeup in the mirror. I just wear waterproof/v sturdy makeup these days so I know it isn't budging.

Everyone is just concerned about themselves. Especially now, everyone is ultimate narcissist only interested in looking good. They are so interested in themselves they have no time to judge you. I have never ever looked at a person and thought they were ugly or something. Only bad thing is if someone is rude, like barging past people, talking loudly in your face. How they look is irrelevant

I feel trapped. My home life has been a mess ever since my parent got a divorce. I grew up in a conservative christian household, I am not a christian so it was very difficult in middle and highschool when i had zero freedom.
> My dad is verbally and mentally abusive.
He is a control freak and everything I do has to be his way or it would turn into a fight that would go on for hours, he would scream and tell me how worthless I was and how no one would ever love me and how bratty I was just because of stupid little mistakes any kid would make. sometimes it would be because i was listening to music or playing games he thought were satanic (pokemon, for example.)
my mom would never listen to me For years about wanting to not live with him anymore, I dreaded having to go to his house. I started going to therapy at some point because of all the trauma he had caused me, I was (and still am to an extent) extremely depressed and suicidal. He would ask my therapists about all the things i was telling her and when he found out i was talking to her about my dad he flipped out on me and pushed me into a wall. I called the police but there was no evidence so they did nothing to him. I finally started living with my mom full time but its not much better now. Ill get into that later.
My dad is now getting remaried somehow and i have to pretend like everything he did to me never happened. I think his wife is a very nice lady and i dont hate her or anything, its just irritating that he acts like nothing bad every happened, and i'm pretty sure he doesn't tell her about all the shit he did to me and my family beforehand.
> after living with my mom full time for a few years, I realize she isnt a very good person either.
shes not abusive like my dad was, but she barely acts like my mom. she is uninterested in anything I do, while she babies my brother and gives him anything he wants or needs. ive been having medical issues for years and years and she refuses to let me go to the doctor, she says its too expensive even thought we have insurance. it hinders me from working or doing a lot of activities and its frustrating because I cant afford anything on my own. the only food she buys is fast food for herself and my brother and lunch food for him. I completely feed myself and pay all of my gas and car bills. if i ask for any money for emergency things she screams at me and says how i just use her for money and act like her house is a hotel. I work 40 hours a week and go to school, wtf am I supposed to do?? she also shames me for everything that I do. I'm 20, and if i'm out later then 12 she flips out on me and treats me like scum. recently we got in this huge fight because I was sick one morning and she started screaming at me about being pregnant (which I am not) and she forced me to take a pregnancy test while she waited outside the restroom. she told me how dissapointed she would be if I was pregnant or how she would kick me out if I ever got an abortion. I'm stressed about this whole thing because i know she tells a bunch of my family members about things I do, like I tried ending my life and the next day the entire family was texting me about how ungodly of a thing that was to do.
> my brother is so fucking annoying i cannot handle living with him anymore.
he is babied by both of my parents, he is a total brat. he is loud and inconsiderate. all he does is play xbox, he screams at people playing games and blasts music and screeches along to it, usually starting around 8 am every day. I work a lot so i dont get to sleep in very much, but every day for the past month he has woken me up early with noise. every time I ask him to stop he threatens to hit me and screams at me that no one wants me around and that I should just leave if I want it to be quiet. he steals from me all the time, takes money from me, eats food that i buy with my own money, and no one holds him accountable for his shitty actions. He isn't gonna make it in the real world, hes a horrible person.
I wish I could just move out with my boyfriend but even working full time I cant afford it, and even if I did have the money I would be looked down upon by everyone in my family for doing so. i just want to get away from everyone and be with the one person who loves me, all my friends stopped talking to me or live far away now. I feel alone and worthless.

Just wanted to say I feel for you and completely understand how much this can fuck a person up.

Unrelated but I think therapists should face penalties for this.
Similar to how they bill patients for not canceling their appointments with 24-48hr notice.
Not only do I think that's bullshit, but they're also fucking around with people's mental states so there should be way more liability on their part.

Most of em don't cancel for emergencies anyway.
My "therapist" canceled my appointment via voicemail day of and I didn't catch the notification. I showed up, waited close to 3 hours for her to barge through the door with a giant bag of fast food in hand. I could tell she was embarrassed because she didn't expect me to be there and I knew then what she'd done. She just wanted a longer lunch break.
>missed the rescheduled appointment the next month and the bitch didn't hesitate to bill me
Part of the reason why I was seeing her was because I was suicidal from my job, missing a lot of hours, and not making much money as a result. I called to beg them to not charge and they were ruthless.
Apparently they mistreated other patients according to the horrible business reviews, but her office was one of the only ones I could find covered under insurance.

Therapists and mental health workers can be straight up cruel, when I was a teen going to therapy I would vent about abuse from my parents, not only did she not submit it in but the word got around about it, I tried emailing her and begging her to please not tell them and instead of being understanding and keeping me safe… She forwards the email to my parents, I had to get chased by them until I left the house and was homeless for a few days, went to a mental ward because of a suicide attempt


When I saw her again she complained about me not trusting her and she asked why I wont talk to her and I said because I don't have a safe place to talk anymore and she told that to my parents too as well as accusing me of lying about getting molested as a child and trying to convince me it was a delusion despite never having delusions, I've had trouble ever going to therapy again after that to the point where when I went to other therapists all i can do is sit in the chair and stay silent

When I was in the mental hospital, back in 2009, the guy in charge of my brain told me a story about how he was keeping his wife and daughter on antidepressants because they were traumatized by 9/11. I asked him if they were nearby when the towers fell. He said yes, they lived in Philadelphia at the time.

He was saying that I was schizophrenic, only reason I got out of there was because my health insurance refused to pay for more than 8 days of inpatient treatment.

Work stuff has me really stressing out.
>tl;dr: How do you deal with someone who is constantly harassing you at work but because she's been there for so long (15+ years), it's "her word" vs "yours" as someone who has just passed their 90 days?

An old bitter lady is trying to get me fired from my job that I started which can lead to my future career, and refuses to give me direct feedback other than complain to the big boss behind my back about it. I decided to take action and talk to everyone else to see if I need feedback and they say I'm doing fine and I could just go a little faster (my boss says they can't fire me just because I'm "slow") but this lady is starting to make up shit to get me fired, some things are really ridiculous. I talked to my big boss yesterday and told me that he's only hearing this negative feedback from this lady only and that he'll disregard it if he doesn't hear anything from the others but told me I may want to quit while I still can or possibly transfer and I'm so baffled because I'm always on my feet, asking people if they need help or prepping them for their next activity while this old bitter lady sits behind a computer and disappears from time to time.


Like I understand if I was a shit employee with shit work ethic and always hid in the back on my phone but I'm always so exhausted after work by getting near to the point of overworking myself because she doesn't do her part of the job. No one wants to say anything against her because she's been there for 15 years and is so "sweet and nice" to everyone else. I've never cried at work before but I cried so hard in front of my boss and later in the bathroom, I ended up coming home from work with a huge headache last night and decided at 8 PM to just head to bed even though I just got home.

This isn't really fair. My boss said to hold off on getting human resources involved until he can settle the case but this has been on going for so long. She just does little petty things like constantly moving my belongings somewhere else like for example, I had a desk to put my things in and sit when I have downtime but she ended up moving my desk to the very back. She's telling me I'm inflexible in my job when I've been accepting their request to cover other locations. The list can go on. She's always pretty much set me up for failure since day 1 because she was supposed to be training me and never did. I relied on others who are in the same position to help me guide me through the first few weeks.

I think even if I do get it settled with HR, I may just transfer somewhere but I don't want to leave until it's my time to leave. I have no problem with anyone at work except for this lady and I understand that there are jobs where you don't get along with a person but it's always something new with her everyday. I don't want her to "win" by making her thinking complaining about it is how you solve your problems and by making me leave but I really don't know what to do. Maybe the people really don't like me there and are just being nice to me in my face. I really don't want to think that because I enjoy most of them there but I don't want to be miserable in my job. I finally get a job that isn't fast food, related to my career, and can give me a huge step ahead into graduate school and I already feel so repulsed by my career because of this lady. I know it's just temporary feelings but I'm just venting at this point. Sorry for the long spew.

I honestly just want to fast forward to the part of my life that I'm not working and focusing solely on school or hell, give me the career already so I can really start my life up.

I hate to say it, but there isn't much you can do. Same thing happened to my bf and he was fired despite being a great employee. He wasn't even there for a year yet.

She will get away with it. The connection with my old landlord and my boyfriend's ex-girlfriend is ridiculous. My old landlord was a family friend of my ex-fiances family and I never knew my current boyfriend's ex-girlfriend even existed before she started emailing people about me.

They all work by doing freelance healing and therapy. The ex-girlfriend fucked off to Unst with some other man's baby and writes a mundane blog about her life. Feel like warning all her clients she's absolutely mental and will tell all your insecurities to anyone else to feel better about herself.

Funny how my experience of therapists is that they are all insecure cunts themselves. My old landlord is trying to be a spiritual healer too.

I can connect them all together and their fields of work, I just don't have the slander in writing. I'd love to sue them, my therapist was also dealing with my Stepmum at the time (I was in therapy because of her, my dad who is wealthy was paying for it all, so he'd be very interested to hear his family is being slandered I'm just dying for some evidence.)

Anon I feel you so hard. I've been at my current office job for over a year and have had a problem with this one woman in another department since I first started. I remember in my second week coworkers were coming up, warning me that she had been talking shit. At one point she had her boss call me and my manager into a meeting because she was accusing me of being a sloppy worker and losing paperwork. I'm lucky to have a manager who really values her workers because she came to my defense, not to mention the missing documents mysteriously appeared on her desk the next day kek. If your boss is telling you to look somewhere else you might want to, and the fact that he has an idea that she's full of it and refuses to do anything is a sign of a bad boss. It's not fair but it won't last forever, and hopefully karma catches up to her.

I miss having friends. I've cut contact with everyone because they all kind of.. suck? Whenever we would have plans, there would be more people than I expected (they would never tell me beforehand, just ask if I wanted to hang out) even though they know I'm anxious in big groups. This happened the last ~5 times I saw them. The people they would hang out with wouldn't know me, but I was never introduced and when I'd try to start a conversation, they wouldn't even bother to try to keep it going. The only thing my friends seem to talk about is people they know (that I don't) and things they've done (that I wasn't there for). I try and switch topics but it just ends up right back where it was. I'd say it was me, and I know it is to some extent, but I have a good relationship with all of my coworkers to the point I've had managers compliment me for being pleasant to work with. I just don't get how I can have better conversations with asshole coworkers than with people who claim to be my friends.

I love my current friends but they do that thing when we plan to hang out somewhere and they bring others with them without telling everyone. I find it annoying because even though most of the time it's not really a problem and they bring people we all get along with, sometimes we book seats for a small restaurant or for the cinema with our small group and surprise, there's not enough seats for everyone who tagged along later on. It's frustrating too.

People need to stop doing this, Jesus it's so annoying and frustrating because you've asked people if they want to come, booked the table for x amount of people and suddenly two hours beforehand everyone wants to invite themselves to butt in. I've been in a situation where we've booked a table for 7 and ended up with 15 people and a waitress being annoyed that we didn't inform about such a big group coming so they could arrange the service better. Or in another situation you're going out to eat with a small group of 3 so you don't bother to make a reservation, and out of the blue there are 6 people joining you so you don't fit in the small restaurant and have to figure out a plan B. I hate being in charge of arranging something like this because it ALWAYS ends up with at least 5 friends' friends begging to come along 20 minutes before we're going because your friend can't grow the balls to say No.

This sounds so annoying! I have a somehow opposite problem that my friends are unable to commit to any plans at all, and if they do, I'd be lucky if they even show up. They even told me that the reason they do this is because they're waiting for a better offer to come along. As in, they don't want to make any plans because they're afraid they'll miss out on some awesome party or event elsewhere, so they would rather risk end up doing nothing.

Luckily there's two others in my friend group who are annoyed by this as well, so we tend to hang out a lot while the others sit around waiting for something better to do.

I talked about small restaurants because of something that happened a few months ago and while I love my friends, I was so pissed at them and I guess I'm still not over it even though it's so silly in the end. Sorry if it's incoherent.

I asked two or three friends to go to a very small restaurant with me after work (for me since I was the only one working that day) and not only did they asked other friends beforehand before I agreed to it (because it's a VERY small restaurant), but once I booked for 6 people, one of the girls who said she wouldn't come because of some personal drama between her and someone else who wasn't even coming came after all, even though it was my friend who asked her to come and not even me!

It turned out that our reservation had been completely forgotten by the waitress so we didn't even have 6 seats side by side in the first place which wasn't that much of a problem since we went to a convoyer belt sushi restaurant, but we still couldn't stay because of the 7th person. Not only that but even though I told everyone it was a bit expensive beforehand, even the people who came because my friend asked them, they started bitching about the prices once we were in front of the restaurant. We ended up going to a shitty overpriced fast food joint instead, which was right next to my work place.

I told my friend who invites people without telling anyone to stop doing that politely because it ruined many of our outings when we couldn't plan how many we were. I think she understood because she only does that when she's the one who organize something now. You should probably talk about it to your friends next time you guys plan something, just in case they try to invite more people without asking anyone first.

I had an interview/exam at this university and at almost the end of it, when speaking to the dean (who was a part of the entrance committee), I mentioned the name of the town I come from. He then asked if I knew a particular teacher of the subject I want to study, and I said yeah, because that was actually my school teacher.
Welp, today my teacher emailed me saying the dean had contacted her. Apparently he wrote her a letter saying how exceptional the interview was and that he hopes I'll choose to attend this particular uni.

I feel sick to my stomach about ever being able to afford a house in the new area I live in. Two major companies have announced they're moving here, prices have increased %25 in the three years since I've moved here already meaning it will increase more now. No doubt that will be an increase in property tax as well. Most townhomes even have already priced me out. Bf and me already pay a ridiculous rent to be where we are.

I could move back to my hometown, which is a cultural and financial shithole, but the problem with buying a cheaper house there is that the jobs pay less as well IF one can find a job. Hence the low costs.

I feel like I'll be forced to buy outside the limits and have over an hour commute if I do ever get there. But housing prices outside are no longer cheap either because everyone else is trying to do just that now.

Worst of all, my parents are being completely naive about this situation because they're fucking boomers who had great housing markets so they have no idea what I'm up against.

Just to give an idea…
Mom's first house she bought for $21k and sold for $66k. Her second house she bought for $65k and sold for $125k. The latter was actually a very nice cape cod house by a lake in my hometown.
All these houses had multiple bedrooms and a lot of square footage.
Here? A single bed townhouse is running at least $200k for about 1,000sq.
>inb4 major city anons say this is nothing
Oh I know, that's why I tried to stay far the fuck away from the major cities. I knew this area was getting a lot of tech influx but I had no idea things could go this much to shit in a matter of a couple of years.
I'm 26 but basically I have nothing saved for a substantial down payment. Mom says she may help me but in boomer language that probably means she'll loan me about $5k hah.

Aw shoot. I have no idea what the birds might be then.
I was gonna say if you knew what type they were you could figure what their food supply is, why they're there, and how long for. Sometimes I manipulate the birds in my area that I don't want with different feed/fake feed/moving objects like pinwheels. You could try hanging shiny tinsel near the source because they get freaked out by moving objects.

Here in Murrica I get lovely songbirds and mimids.

I've had an only friend since high school and we used to hang out from time to time and everything seemed fine but then she got a boyfriend and pretty much cut me off. We still talk but when I ask her out she says that she's very busy all the time and then after a few days she'd mention how she's just went somewhere with her bf. It's so frustrating that I don't have any other friends and I'm kind of dependent on her, I wish I could just ignore her and move on but there's not so many people I can talk to.

I try making friends with people in my university and the ones I really like seem to like me back but they never invite me anywhere even though they often hang out together after class. I'm too scared to get annoying not to make them avoid me whatsoever. I also happen to have a crush on one of them and I know that she's bi but I almost wish she wasn't because I'll always be too scared to make a move. She's friendly with me in general but she brushes me off sometimes and I feel like if I made an attempt to get to know her better, she'd be even more annoyed.

I feel like I'm failing everyone.

I'm 27 and haven't had a job because of how bad my anxiety is. People suggest factory work or something so I won't have to really interact with the public much. But here there is no factory work and I don't have a degree cause I didn't know what to go to college for and I didn't want to potentially waste money.

I have a really great guy interested in me and he's super smart and motivated. He likes me even though I am obviously messed up but he still worries that if I were to visit him I won't do anything, no work no cleaning and no cooking.

I worry about the same for myself. I want to be useful. I want to learn to cook but anytime I show interest my parent will laugh at me and tell me I'll basically mess it up. Then if I still insist on trying it they will write down what ingredients to get and yet somehow forget them when they take the list to the store. They have control over my food benefits ways always keep the card on them and won't let me go shopping on my own unless it's an emergency. The cleaning of course I would do. Work is currently out of the question but I am trying to get better about my anxiety.

I have been thinking I'm not good enough for this guy and I know I shouldn't think that way but it's becoming blatantly obvious. He deserves someone who is actually living their life and are smart and educated like he is.

I feel like such a fucking fool anons. I just moved out on my own into this small studio apartment; it wasn't my first choice but I only chose it because they allowed pet(s). All my neighbors have dogs (big and small) and one has a few cats, so I thought since I'm pretty lonely I would adopt this senior cat whose been sitting in the local no kill shelter for a few years. I message the property management Monday and they responded earlier today, Friday. They told me that the landlord had actually banned pets earlier this year so I wouldn't be allowed to bring her home. I read back through my lease and it did say the landlord could deny pets but it just seems…unfair that my neighbors can have their dogs, who barking at 4 in the fucking morning, and I can't have a cat that only has maybe 5 more years left? I also feel a bit lied to considering if the landlord made that decision at the beginning of the year, why advertise and show off the place as "pet friendly" 5 months later? The one guy who was there when I was reading and signing everything kept telling me when I'm ready to adopt to just call them and give them the pet deposit? I want to email them back but I don't know what to say? It does say right in my lease that they can do that. idk this just sucks and I wish I would've known beforehand so I could've moved into the nicer apartment by the ocean.

I'm tired of how things are with my boyfriend, and talking hasn't worked, so I wrote a succinct little break-up message summing up my feelings, and two possible responses to what he might say back to me.
Now I'm actually itching to send it, but it seems too soon. I'm going to wait on it for at least two days, maybe sooner if we argue. I still love him, but I'm so tired of the way he's been making me feel, and there's no end in sight. It's gotten to the point where I'd rather just end things because the bad is overshadowing the good.

Forgot to put in a new a Nuvaring yesterday. I put in the new one 10 hours overdue but I was doing an extended wear (so I skipped the week without just let it in until I put the new one).
I found one source on the Internet saying that with the extended wear you're supposed to be good for 35 days (I was on 29th) but it was basically the only one information on the subject.

I had sex 24 hours ago. I don't want to take a morning after pills since I've been physically weak for a week and it will wreak avock on my body.

I'm basically crossing my fingers I'm not dropping an egg right now and fertilizing it with day old sperm.

Thank you both of you! ;;

I'm coming to terms with the situation now. I have one more week before I meet up with my boss to discuss the situation, I'll still report it to HR even if there's an opportunity to transfer out. I want to stay because I have someone who is willing to write on their own accord a recommendation letter for my graduate program. So I'm hoping I can just bear a few more months until I get the letter and just leave.

The whole situation sucks because I asked those around me for feedback to see if they align with what she's saying but they don't because they just said to keep up the good work and be able to handle a bigger workload when we get slammed because we're picking up speed now at work.

I do have a professional diagnose for depression/anxiety/ptsd but stopped seeing my therapist a couple months ago; my dilemma is whether or not to email her explaining the situation but I'm afraid she'll deny me because I am no longer her patient or she won't believe that I still struggle with social anxiety.

I met my now-ex at the beginning of this week for the first time since our very recent breakup, and he said he'll think about giving us another try (not "officially" get back together asap, but see each other regularly/casually date again as a start). For now, we're not talking at all for a few weeks because he wants space, and so far it's only been 4 or 5 days but it's killing me. Talking to or seeing him always made me so happy, it felt like a drug, so it's a struggle. I keep thinking about how much I want to kiss him everywhere and stroke his hair and tell him I love him. Ughhhh.

The breakup was over me being overly clingy/needy last month, and I really realized that I can't do that to a bf even if my past ones were doormats and put up with overt negativity. We had zero issues besides that and it was very sudden, so I do genuinely feel like we have a chance of getting back together and working things out, especially since I'm planning on seeing a psychiatrist again soon and just generally will get busier with positive things. I just feel so guilty for fucking up my first healthy relationship with someone who means so much to me. I've been crying over it daily because even if I'm doing other things, I can't forgive myself or get him off my mind.

HELLO ACTUAL ME. holy shit. i got three syringes of juvederm in my cheeks (1.5 syringe in each cheek) almost two years ago and they haven't dissolved at all. AT ALL.

i didn't even really like the cat-woman look they gave me when i got them to begin with, but i was into looking like a plastic IG thot at the time so i kept them since they looked better than my flat cheeks in any case. i got lip fillers at the same time, and it was the same case with those - absolutely no natural dissolving happening. i went back every three months for botox re-ups and my NP was super surprised my body wasn't metabolizing the fillers but said it wasn't anything to be concerned about, i was lucky, etc.

i wound up not liking how my lips were looking at roughly the 1-year mark so i got them dissolved. biggest mistake i'd ever made. my lips were all loose and wrinkly and disgusting looking. i had lines around my lips that hadn't been there before i'd gotten the fillers and my lips FLAPPED. my injection lady repeated the usual, "oh don't worry, that's just natural aging that happened while you had the filler" - BULLSHIT, the outside of my mouth legit looked like a cat's asshole. i had to get some filler back just to not look incredibly aged at 21.

i don't want my cheek fillers anymore either, but after the lip incident, i'm incredibly scared to find out what my face would look like without them. i think part of my problem tho was that i just got wayyy too much filler. i could have gotten one syringe in my lips or even half a syringe, but i got 2.5, and i could have gotten 1-2 in my cheeks but i got 3. if you didn't go overboard and you want to get them dissolved someday, don't let my horror stories scare you anon. :')

I'm completely in love with a guy at my new job. I haven't had a real crush since high school.
I'm so fucking autistic that I drop spaghetti every time he even makes eye contact with me. He made an innocuous yet somewhat flattering comment to me and I could feel all my blood rush to my face, I was probably visibly blushing and now I'm worried that he knows I like him and might find me creepy.
On the other hand I feel like he's doing extra small things for me that I don't see him doing for anyone else and I don't know if that means he likes me back or if I'm looking too far into it.
I'm not going to bother making a move because I'm terrified of rejection and I don't want to make things any more weird between us. I enjoy his company. Plus I don't know if he has a girlfriend(I'll probably go home and cry if I find out that he does tbh)
Fuck this hurts so fucking much, I want to die. But at the same time I like it, I honestly didn't think I was still capable of feeling attraction.

I'm so sick of my shit. My friend has been having a major depressive episode for the past week. She's finally getting better and talking more. Today she told me that she wouldn't confine in me, and even though she explained why it hurt so much. She's afraid I'll leave if she does it, and I get the fear because I've been there. It still hurts though. I really thought we were closer than that. I tell her pretty much anything, and knowing that it's not the same hurts. It's sent me into my own little depressive episode. I hate this. I shouldn't get so upset over this, and I'm not gonna tell her or confront her about it; it would probably upset her way too much.

Sometimes I really wish I was into one of those culty fandoms like 1D or a generic kpop group as a teenager. I'm 18 now and I feel like I kinda missed that part of growing up, to chat with friends about boys from bands and stuff. It's directly linked with having few friends at all, I guess. I have tried various times to get into kpop but I truly, truly can't: I don't like the music and the fans scare me actually, ironically. So I'm left with a sense of emptiness due to this stupid feeling of having missed out. I can obsess over semi underground musicians and older actors all I want, but their fandoms will never be as lively as I see others being. And that really bothers me for some reason.

Oh, bands from the 90s, alt rock, generally old music.

With kpop really blowing out of dimensions I can't help but notice girls my age really living the time of their lives obsessing over them plastic dolls while I'm kinda detached from nowadays trends. And at the same time it's like I'm just one of endless quirky ~indie girls~ without actually being cute and interesting.

I feel you. As a teen my friends liked things with notoriously obsessive fanbases (Dr. Who, 1D, Homestuck, My Little Pony, etc.) and for the most part I could just never get into any of that and I felt left out despite not actually liking the subject of obsession. The bands I liked (classic/alt/stoner/indie rock mostly) tended to have smaller, less rabid fanbases and none of my irl friends ever wanted to talk about them as much as me.

Honestly I don't think you're missing out on much. I'm a fan of something right now with a culty fanbase (and I'm 20, for reference) and yeah it's kind of fun sperging with people online but it gets old fast if you don't have irl friends with the same interest to share the experience with.

From what it sounds like (based on your use of the words bitter, brainwashed, etc.) even if you did genuinely start enjoying something with a big fanbase and made a bunch of friends you'd probably still be uncomfortable/self-conscious about liking it and never be able to enjoy yourself fully. Just like whatever you like no matter how popular it is, fandom culture is fucking stupid anyway. I got sick of it real quick.

Oof, exactly. To be honest, I'm just now getting kind of hyperfixated on a very huge cinematic universe, but I have no plan to get involved with its fandom because it is, of course, full of kids who tweet weird stuff to actors.

One of his favorite things to say is how women are just as violent and sexually aggressive as men, but they don't act on it due to lack of strength. I've told him before I disagree, but I regret not bringing up obvious examples like mass shootings to shut down his idiocy. He's also the champion of the oppression Olympics and the most narcissistic person I've ever been friends with. On the bright side dealing with him has made me far more selective when it comes to new friends, so there's that at least.

>ask her who else is in the party
>she mentions a psycho cunt who caused me trouble and is a shit person
>had to decline because I never want to see that crazy bitch again after the last bridal drama she caused in a different friend's wedding I was part of

I asked G why she's having her, and G said it was because she was "good at planning budget weddings."
Um, no. She's actually shit.
I didn't want to disrespect her choice to her face if she really thinks this bitch has a place in her life like that–but deep down–NO.
The bitch is a fucking lolcow in the local community and everyone walks on eggshells around her because the smallest criticism sends her into a narcissistic rage.
The last wedding I was in with her she was completely absentee the entire time. She didn't participate in planning, didn't help brainstorm any ideas, but then the controlling narc wanted to turn around last minute and be slavedriver towards us because she wanted to take all the credit for OUR work.
I planned the bridal shower venue all by myself (because G, the MoH couldn't do it), and that bitch's idea of contribution was bringing dollar store bridal scratchcards. This is after she ignored my repeated attempts to run the venue idea by her, and she had the audacity to criticize the food at it because she didn't like it even though that's what the bride liked.

Anyway, I fell out with her because one day she was giving our group chat hell when we were having fun shooting ideas around for the bachelorette party. She barged in and claimed none of us thought about the bride and our ideas weren't good. The fuck? When I called her out she said she visited the bride the most (because she was getting her hair colored by her for free and because she's unemployed and has the time to go see her). So therefore we were clueless and she just knew best, even though she did fuck all up to that point. She was annoying EVERYONE in the group and they were all PMing me to complain. So I told her to put up or shut up. She sperged at me then left the group and didn't go to the bachelorette party just to spite me. To punish me for having clapped back at her.

Not only that. NOT ONLY THAT–but she talked shit about G the entire time.
"I SHOULD BE THE MAID OF HONOR!" the crazy bitch would say. She thought G was absolutely incapable as a person.
At the time G was breaking up with her now-fiance and she wasn't able to focus on a wedding. She got kicked out of his house and she stayed in my apartment for awhile.
What did crazy bitch do for her? NOTHING!

For that alone, it confuses the fuck out of me as to why she wants her there.

UNLESS–and only unless–G is just using her (even though I don't think she's as good a planner as she claims).
And you know what? If she's willing to be fake just to use someone, that makes me question my friendship with her too.
What am I for, really? Who am I to her after what I did for her in her time of need?
Maybe it's best I'm not in the wedding, more money in my pocket and I don't have to deal with the nonsense.

I told her I'd attend the wedding and would be there for her if she needed help or wanted a second opinion. But I am not dealing with that psycho ever again. Never. I refuse.

I feel such strange emotions right now.
Frustrated because I don't know how she could invite such a shit person to be in one of her most intimate life events.
Relieved because I don't have to be in another damn bridal party.
Angry because I feel like she's a user and that maybe all that I ever was, was a tool to her.

Fuck.

I've been having friend issues for a long time and it's now just dawned on me how fucked my relationship with one of my "best friends" is and I hate it.

My friend, let's call her C, is a very emotionally stunted person with a very straight to the point attitude. But the thing is, every friendship for her has to be worth something monetary to her. If one of her friends falls out of use, she just doesnt talk to them anymore, or barely keeps the relationship. My stupid ass thinks that this could never happen to me, as we had bonded over multiple things and were already pretty stead fast even though we had known each other for only a year or two.

Until I started messing up plans and schedules during the first few months of 2018.
Big note: I am attending university, while she has a part time job. My university was around 2 hours away from where she lived and I had no car to make it there. The distance wasnt anything too bad, so I thought it could work.We both do convention artist alley stuff as a side job and we thought that if we ever started growing our convention business we could help each other and maybe even work together as a company.

Then came finals for me and more classwork and other university shit. I got overworked and stressed and started to forget some details in our convention planning. Stuff like paying her for the hotel fees on time or getting prints ready ahead of schedule. I was tired and not okay with the amount of work I had to finish on both ends. She took this as a sign of me slacking off and being a bitch.

Later on during a con she just stopped talking to me. We had planned our tables close to each other, so I wanted to come check her booth. But she just ignored me or talked to her other friends. I felt uneasy so I dm'd her on my phone. She said she was fed up with me and told me to never talk to her again. I was devastated.

We had done a lot of shit together and I felt like all that was just stuff she put up with to get closer with me. I was just a tool she used to help her get better at conventioning. Once I started staying from her guidelines I was no longer needed.

I hate this feeling I have. It feels like I've been used and thrown out like garbage. And I cried myself to sleep at least a few days after the con because I'm a weak bitch.

>mfw they've probably shit-talked me before
>mfw I can't really do anything about it, as he owns the group and everyone else seems to like him
I kind of want to just message M once and for all, tell him I know he's openly shitted on me to others, ask him what his issue is with me, and try to hammer things out (assuming it's not what I'm thinking, ie that it was just because I'm a terrible, awful no-good femoid who wouldn't touch him). I don't really like being involved in passive aggressive Mean Girls bullshit, and I'm tired of feeling unwelcome when I just want to chill with friends, but he seems kind of unstable (by his own friend's admission) so I don't want to cause drama.
It'd actually be so nice to just cut the shit, decide none of this is worth it and start exclusively talking to the person I like, but I'm just too shy. Fuck.

I've been having baby fever something fierce for a while now. My fiance was on the fence but lately has been saying things like "if you want a baby, you need to go to the hospital to make sure you're healthy" after we were talking about my not wanting to go to the doctor. That got my hopes up but knowing we can't try yet made me sad instantly. We're both waiting until we're in a comfortable spot financially.

I also am worried because I'm 25 and don't want a baby in my 30s for plenty of reasons including the risk involved. I don't want to wait but know that rushing into anything would be devastating to everyone involved, including the baby.

I just want this baby fever to be over. I hate looking at videos of cute babies and shit. I just want to win the lottery.

Turned 24 today. My family had a get together at my parents and everyone was there. We opened presents and I read a card that my niece wrote about loving me and it just wrecked me, to the point where I almost started sobbing in front of everyone.

I'd first recommend talking to the guy you like outside of the chat. Build more of a friendship with him to start off with.

There's actually a lot of power in confronting someone respectfully. A lot of the time people only gossip because they don't realise the damage it's doing or because they're being allowed to get away with it by the people they're gossiping to. Wait for the right moment and just say something like

>Look, I know you've been talking about me behind my back. If you had a problem, you should have messaged me directly instead of doing that. To be honest, I feel really uncomfortable now.


Anyone decent will stand up for you and talk to you outside of the chat. Anyone who doesn't isn't even worth your time anyway. Men are like this, they're bitchy and petulant and it's just something you have to deal with if you befriend them. I can't guarantee this M guy will respond respectfully like a woman would because they're so immature. I can't even guarantee the others will even respond positively because they've been listening to this guy and did nothing about it (typical male behaviour tbh, they'll always put other men first. Always.) But it's worth a try since you've got nothing left to lose anyway.

I've gotten a lot of success from just messaging people and being like "You actually really hurt my feelings there" and I know it sounds really dorky but I think it shocks them because it's not the response they were expecting and a lot of the time they genuinely don't realise they were causing harm. But yeah, these were all emotionally mature women.

It actually truly amazes me how good some men are at hiding major sides of their personality when you first get into a relationship. You could do all the important research beforehand and make positive observations, but still end up with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde upon a minor lapse in judgment. I still think about the last guy I dated sometimes and through hindsight I can pinpoint some moments of foreshadowing, but sometimes it’s hard to tell what was normal banter and what deserved more attention. It’s like this bitch is a method actor and this is a role he’s playing. Some of these dusty ass males deserve a golden globe award for their stunning performances.

Men are policed by other men, immoral men and cucks are shit on by other men for being immoral and cucky, they get thrown in jail or laughed at. The man being "abusive" doesn't matter when it comes to attraction. She is attracted to him regardless of how much of an asshole he is, because she responds to masculinity cues, and rewards him with love and admiration for it, regardless of the morality of the person. This imageboard has tons of girls talking about this phenomenon.

I never gave him my Instagram and had even changed the name.

Plus he used to check up on people he knew before so it wouldn't surprise me. I talk about the new guy I'm interested in on my Twitter quite a bit because he makes me happy and I'm in love with the nerd.

So where are all these Good Moral Men who are clearly the majority? Since immoral men don't represent men at all to you. The men in power, who got there through lack of empathy and machiavellianism? The police force, rife with internal corruption and abuse of women and others? Listen, buddy, I wish everyone in power was great too…but they aren't. We have some veneer of a good society to keep things from going completely savage, but far from the majority of people are moral.

>men are policed by other men

I've also experienced women having a giggle about women who date "bad boys." I have, myself, laughed at them. And developed women try harder to spot the holes in actual healthy masculinity vs. immoral selfish behaviour (see: the redflags talked about all the time by girls). You'll also have women in every man-hate conversation say "not all men" to keep the hate from getting too vitriolic.

My point still stands that both men and women are susceptible to the charms of attractive people. Generalizing based on bio-essentialism is always stupid anyway and benefits no one.

No. 256157

The point is that men are policed by society; by laws, the state, by courts - which were created by men. Men are often immoral, everyone recognizes that, which is why we police it. Men commit the crimes, and they're policed. I don't want criminals to be free because we don't want them to get away with being parasites on society, or hurting other people. Likewise, women's sexuality should be policed, becuase it is inherently amoral (note: not immoral, amoral), rewards parasitic behaviour like someone trying to get a criminal out of prison or banding behind a cartel leader. Women love the toxic masculinity and reward it too often (many studies about Machiavellian guys getting the most sex, bullies getting the most sex, etc pp.) so it should be policed. It doesn't mean women should be controlled at all times but parental supervision over which men young women especially date sounds good to me.

See, I actually do agree with the core of what you're saying. I believe young women should be taught what kind of men are best to date (and vice versa) by their parents. And yes, especially young women, since they're the ones who often fall for the Bad Boys meme. Sadly most homes feature one or more abusive parents, which essentially helps train women (and young men) to search for that in relationships. This doesn't even have to be the same sex parent, girls with abusive mothers will also get used to abuse. Or will look to actively hate and use men for their own gain. And for abused young men the same will be true (immoral men and cucks, as you'd say). May be anecdotal, but my mother raised me by having MANY talks with me about avoiding abusive men and guess what? I never fucking fell for the bad boy shit, not even as a teen. Actually been teased for liking shy skinny sweet men kek.

So we agree on a similar policy being implemented, but believe it comes from different sources. I see this mess as a result of child abuse and you of biology.

Also
>still not responding to my comments about male sexuality being equally amoral
Some men will fuck a hot chick even if she's done bad shit. She has complete control over having a child and raising it, especially if he pumps and dumps. I see this as equally as bad as women chasing Bad Chads.
>inb4 that's not rewarding
But she's still a shitty person who will do a bad job of raising a child (perhaps abusing it or letting it get molested), thus continuing the cycle of immorality in society.

On a side not, I also wager that most of the women lusting after evil men are either damaged (as those I mentioned earlier) or evil themselves. Not moral women.

So basically what I believe:
Good people, in general, need to stop fucking and procreating with bad people. And we need to raise children to be equally as picky with their partners.

I used to be that nerdy kid who locked my self on internet doing cringey shit.

I've made myself better, dropping from most online stuff and started living my life as some relatively normal person, made new friends and live independently. I am still working towards being a productive member of society and good emotional health. Not yet perfect but I can see myself getting better.


But now looking at these lolcows, It almost felt like being trainwrecks is actuall… fine. A lot of my friends on the internet turned out to still hold totally immature and delusional worldview. A lot are still obsessed with anime and fandom shit I don't really care that much anymore, but they seem to be happy for what they do. (Although most of them have obvious depression/mental issues)

They seem to get attention from other losers while I'm growing apart. Now I just felt weirdly sad that I couldn't save them, and ocassionally imagine what would've been if I'm still having that kind of fun. Although I am proud in what I've done so far though.

I can relate, anon. Being pretty normie at this point (going to uni for fucking business soon, working full time currently, not watching anime much anymore, not going to conventions) makes me feel nostalgic for the days of being excited about introducing friends to a new series and taking part in fandom culture (shipping, fanart, fanfics, cosplay, etc.). Especially when I see people older than me even making money off of being in those communities. And yeah, I actually view lolcows (who aren't abusive) as a means of feeling that nostalgia and peeking in to how those communities are doing currently.

I actually don't find it wrong to be into BJDs or stuff. It's just that I am not overly obsessed, or so hard-on on being 'quirky and different'. There's a difference between just watching a show and waging in the ship wars and writing shitty fics all days.

I fucked up. A few years ago I started talking to a guy online (we live in the same country but in different cities) and I fell for him. However we had never met and he didn't want to come see me and I couldn't go see him. I'd told him how I felt but he apparently didn't believe it (he says now). Anyway, because of this, one of my close friends kept telling me to drop him. I didn't want to drop him entirely because he's a good friend. I did try to get over him and it seems I succeeded. I tried dating another guy but it didn't work out. After that I gave up on men and relationships and I felt okay. I thought it'd be better if I focused on my studies and hobbies more.

At the beginning of this year he told me he was in love with me and my reaction was basically pic related. I spent a few months raging at him and basically rejecting him BUT then for some reason I decided to give this shit a chance and not reject him. We finally met and… I wasn't attracted to him. I'd seen pictures of him before so I knew he wasn't great looking but I thought maybe it would be different in real life. I should probably note that we're still friends and he treats me very well, puts up with my idiotic raging.

I can't get over the lack of attraction. My best friend says it can't be helped if there's no chemistry and I agree with her but at the same time I'm afraid I won't find a guy who puts up with me so much again. I've never had sex and I feel different from everyone I meet. I just want to do it so I wouldn't feel out of place. I could fuck him but the thought revolts me. I want to stop talking to him so I don't have to listen to his affection but I don't want to lose his friendship.

I go back and forth between complete apathy toward him and a sense of guilt which makes me want to give him a chance. Am I what incels cry about? Just dreaming of chad? I feel as if I'm missing something.

hello me. i'm always told i'm "model pretty" too, and, like you, a lot of my compliments come from women rather than men. i'm not andro personally, but i do have very odd features that look out of place on a caucasian face - extremely large bug eyes, a heavy brow ridge that slopes into a non-existent nose bridge, high and flat cheekbones that exist almost exclusively in people with asian or indigenous blood, a very square german jaw, etc. kids used to tell me i looked like a tarsier. :') i'm an odd mismatch of features that look great individually, but don't blend together in a conventional way, so i totally understand the 'proportionate but weird' feelings. i used to take "model pretty" as a backhanded compliment as well - it actually made me so upset i'd sneak away to restrooms or other secluded places to cry after hearing it pretty much every time.

but now i'm fine with it. i haven't grown into my features or anything, but i've grown to accept my weird face to the point where it honestly makes me happy when people tell me i "look like a model" now, even if i know they're just trying to find a way to say i don't look like them but i'm not quite ugly. i get told i look like cara delevingne - well, normies usually say "that monkey looking girl with the eyebrows" or something similar - pretty much every other day. that made me realize that people like us - you, me, and cara - with our weird faces are actually pretty lucky. it's easy as hell to be born with a conventionally pretty face, it really is. it's easy to wear a bland face that blends into a crowd, but how many people like us exist? not many, or else we wouldn't be considered weird and unconventional by average people. we wouldn't be appreciated the way high fashion appreciates girls with odd faces if odd faces weren't rare commodities in a world that celebrates rare gems. weird is rare, and once you learn to appreciate being rare, life and loving yourself will be a hell of a lot easier.

This shit gets annoying, especially when it gets around to weight. “Oh but you’re so tinyyyyy you should modelllll’ bitch no.
1: 55kgs is heavy af for a model, and 2: oversized eyes and being reasonably slim don’t make anyone good at posing, or able to walk down a runway without looking like a newborn giraffe.

Like I get it, they like giving compliments but why do so many girls just straight up lie to be nice? Older women are notorious for it. It’s like okay Thanks Rhonda but can you just shut the fuck up and let me lament my pig nose?

No cheekbones or owl eyes make up for an upwards tilted schnoz.

Same with height. Almost everyone in my life has suggested it at some point.

Like, yeah, I totally want to work in an unhealthy industry obsessed with superficial looks, drugs, and unattainable beauty. I want to devote all my time to learning how to look good for other people to consume me rather than working in my industry and contributing to the world via my intellect. I want to work miserable hours, in dehumanizing positions, for the chance of ending up in a magazine. I want to be paraded around like cattle alongside other women (many of whom are trafficked or brought over for the hope of citizenship in terrible conditions) judged and compared for our appearances. /s

The fashion industry has done such a good job of their “elite” image that everyone just assumes if you’re attractive, slim, and tall that it is your ultimate goal. Nah, I have other shit I want to do. And a much nicer lifestyle to live

Not every modeling job is like that. There are several more low key ones.

If it was pretty shitty I don't think she would do something like that.

I think I'm spiraling because into addiction again.
I can't sleep without zolpidem (Been upping the dosage to 1 to 1,5 pill a night), and I still wake up during the night at around 3-4 am. I then take 3-5 drop of Prazepam to go back to sleep.
I wake up feeling like shit with horrible pain in my legs and back. I think the pain is from the med or from tiredness since I don't have any medical issue.

Also, last thursday, my GP gave me some tramadol and now I've been taking one to two pills a day for the high and for lessening the pain after I wake up.

I have no idea what to do. I can't quit cold turkey, I'm doing an internship and have 25 days to go. I will probably run out of pills toward the end of that and have no idea if my GP will renew.

Am I fucked farmers? Should I just off myself before I crash again and fail the very last year of schooling I can do?

Anon as someone who's used benzos and known benzo addicts it does sound like you have significant tolerance.

You can't quit the benzos or z-drugs cold turkey so you need to withdraw slowly (tapering). Whether you want to do the taper guided by your GP (which is safer) or do it yourself is up to you.

I doubt your GP will be comfortable continuing to prescribe you all these drugs or upping the dosages, I don't know wear you live but in the UK benzos/z-drugs/opiates are only meant to be prescribed for short term use (usually 2-6 weeks). But they will help you taper the dose down.

You may be waking up with pain in the morning because as the z-drugs wear off your muscles start cramping as you enter into withdrawal.

Because Prazepam has a long half life it makes it easier to withdraw with, this is a useful benzo withdrawal guide that is very detailed https://www.benzo.org.uk/manual/index.htm and this is a link to a pdf version of the guide (I find it easier to read) http://www.btpinfo.org.uk/ws-public/uploads/97_Prof%20Ashton%20Manual.pdf

If you want any more info anon I'm happy to provide more resources. But again I want to repeat DO NOT quit cold turkey or taper too fast, my boyfriend tapered too fast years ago and ended up having a tonic-clonic seizure in a meeting in work and had to be taken to hospital to stop him from seizing.

Do you want to quit anon? If so you will need more support if you have had a long term benzo/z-drug addiction. You will need help from your GP/addictions specialist etc.

And I remember being like that, when I was using benzos a lot I would freak out and cry in the bathroom at work in the morning.

You only have 25 days of your internship left, focus on completing that and then once thats out the way you can concentrate your efforts on beating your addiction.

Gonna quit my aupair job in three weeks at max because it's making me fucking miserable. The little girl is a spoiled unlikeable brat and the mom is a paranoid overprotective emotionally unstable woman who basically threatened to kill me because her daughter got a scratch from not listening to me and putting her feet out of the bike like a dumbass. I'm expected to clean the house AND watch out for Satan's spawn at the same time, with the girl trying to kill herself all the time, trying to eat colours when colouring, trying to jump off the window when brushing her teeth, trying to jump off the bridge or running towards the road when walking. Doesn't want to eat, dress up, clean, go to school, come back from school, go to sleep, ever. And if she misbehaves her mom blames me.

Hi, I’m the anon you replied to. I deleted my original post because I was worried I would come across as shallow or be accused of humble bragging or something.
I felt weird reading your post because we sound similar lol. I’m also white and have a brow ridge, high flat (really broad) cheekbones, but with a tall nose. My eyes are a pretty shape but my nose height makes them look close set.
I’m sorry you’ve also had to deal with comments about how you look, but I’m happy you’ve learned to appreciate your features more.
Thank you a lot for your opinion/view on this. This topic is really hard to talk about for me and it’s not like there’s lots of other unique looking girls I can relate with. I’ve honestly never thought of it from that perspective and even though it’ll take getting used to Ill try thinking like that too.

vent : I just wish I could blend in more. I’ve started getting paranoid when I go out and it’s effecting my self esteem which is effecting my relationship. I wish if I was going to be weird looking it’d at least be the pretty type or land me a modeling gig or something instead of being a source of insecurity.

I can understand, its very stressful starting an internship and yeah your GP was careless prescribing these medications to you for more than a few days.

If you have been taking the Prazepam and zolpidem for a significant amount of time your GP shouldn't cut you off cold turkey though because thats dangerous and if they try to do that please speak up.

Maybe you could speak to an addictions counsellor or something who isn't associated with your GP or get advice from like an addictions charity?

At your next appointment you could ask your GP about medications that would help you with your anxiety/insomnia that are less addictive? It sounds like therapy would be beneficial for you but if you aren't ready to quit some therapists won't accept you, but hopefully an addictions charity or similar would be able to point you in the right direction.

Hopefully once you finish your internship, your stress levels will drop and you will feel more comfortable with quitting.

I'm just so frustrated with my housing situation.

Three years ago my husband and I bought a small comfy home and I loved it so much. I spent a year decorating and organizing and then his parents just swoop in and ask us to house sit for them indefinitely. My husband convinced me, because we could make money renting out our house, but I fucking hate his parents house so goddamn much. It's pretty much been used as the family dumping ground for 30 years and every room is the same: full of outdated, worn out shit that no one's touched in at least 15 years. Two of the bedrooms are full-on inaccessible hoarder rooms. Even in the kitchen, I get two shelves for all of my food and everything else has to go on the counters because all of the other cabinets/pantry are for storage. It's a 10min drive to the closest grocery store, 25min to an actually good grocery store, and none of my friends will visit because I live in buttfuck nowhere.

On top of that, his parents still live here two months out of the year. I love them but they intimidate the shit out of me (also what masochist wants to live with their in-laws for that long?). It's basically just two months of constant panicking and trying to make it look like I'm not a fuck up. They tell me it's my house and I can do what I want but whenever I run things by them they just make me feel like I was wrong to even bring it up. Just last week I asked if my closest childhood friend could couch surf and they reacted like I was inviting a felon into their house. And I get the same shocked overreaction for everything, it makes me feel like just wanting to live normally is a personal offense to them. I wouldn't mind if it was just a few years of inconvenience but his parents don't even know when they'll move back permanently. I could be stuck here til I'm fucking 40 and just thinking about that makes me want to just kill myself already.

I snapped and vented a little to my husband the other day and he got super butthurt. Like, how can you not like living in a five bedroom house? Bitch, we could live at fucking Versailles and it wouldn't matter if I had to act like I didn't live there.

I haven't had regular, ongoing, nasty experiences with men as you have, luckily never been catcalled in my life. But I've known many shitty men and trusted some who then went on to joke about rape or say child abuse and shit is no big deal. And my own father was a useless criminal who abused my mother and I and preyed on teenage girls.

The thing that makes me pause is that I'm also close with good straight men (my stepfather who can't even bear to look at abuse of women/children in movies, my best friend who has almost too much compassion for me). But they do seem so few and far between that they may as well not exist, and I now feel as if I can't trust those two completely. Even if they would have given up the act if they had one by now.

Perhaps in your shoes I'd have acted on my thoughts by now (drugging+raping+disfiguring a guy), since I'd have no conscience built around men and it would satisfy me sexually as well (since I'm still attracted to men). But knowledge of the innocents walking among them (and the law) keeps me in check.

Or maybe I'm just a gross coward.

Hoarders are weird about their house and possessions. The smallest piece of junk is like treasured gold to them, and any outsider will steal their treasure or wreck their shitty house.
Hate to say it but it's better to beg forgiveness than ask permission in a case like that. Nothing bad could have possibly happened with your childhood friend visiting anyway. That's something they didn't need to know if it's truly 'your house' too.

I know there doesn't seem to be a solution, but frankly their house isn't your responsibility. Is your name on the deed of the other house, or do you have any say in it?
As soon as you find out when those in-laws are coming back, I'd give your current occupants notice to leave so you can move back in to your own home.
If anything, those hoarders should have to deal with renting out their shitty house if they want someone occupying it. Although they'd never do it.
It's not fair that you can't enjoy your home.

They have dual citizenship and take care of grandparents overseas, which I understand, but fuck just sell your damn house if you're not gonna use it. And yeah, they're totally against hiring someone. Before we moved in, we'd have to stop by once a week to take care of things.
The other issue is my husband doesn't want to move back into our old house. He wants us to sell it so we can get something better when this housing bubble bursts. It sounds good if it's just a couple years, but that's implying we're in a bubble.

Friend breaks up with bf, bf needs place to stay, friend asks me if her now ex can live with me as I was looking for a roommate anyways, I agree as he and I get along well as a favour to her, friend now doesn't talk to me and has talked behind my back that I "stole" her bf making me out to be some homewrecker despite her ex telling her exactly why he broke up with her and it had nothing to do with me. Yet, according to her stories, I "lured him in with my thin body". No bitch, you were a lazy fuck going nowhere in life, he fell out of love and had no desire to force his way through a life with you. Don't make up shit to make your ex look bad and take all the blame off yourself and put it on a person who had nothing to do with this.
She's a fat ugly cunt and always has been, if he was shallow enough to break up with her to get with someone "thin" or attractive (I don't think I'm that hot but I know I'm better looking than the 200lbs beast she is, also this is according to her) he would never have entered into the relationship to begin with. Also even if I were the hottest person in the world, why waste his time trying to get with A LESBIAN he knows he wouldn't be able to be with when he could have had any other girl and it still would have been an upgrade. Also why would A LESBIAN try to get with your bf? Also fuck this cunt for me having to explain to people that I wasn't lying about being a lesbian, she's just a delusional bitch or a crazy lier.
But, since this is anonymous, I will add this: he confessed he found her body repulsive. Her thighs were practically the size of his torso and you could see her cellulite like craters in her skin. He likes a girl to go on top but she was too fat to, not only too heavy but could support her weight. Her ass that she's so proud of is just wide and flat. She brags that she has a "black girl's ass" but honey, you've got an old lady office worker ass. Even being fat your ass is flatter than a ten year old boy's ass. Yes it's petty as fuck to call her out on her looks but this bitch has apparently been saying how he made a mistake to leave a "real sexy woman" to get with a boring woman who "fits society's ideals". Says the girl who'd be society's standard (minus the ugly face) if she lost about 70 pounds (she's Uber pale with blond hair and blue eyes) vs a freaking brown girl

Wah. He fucked her. He dated her.
What desperate cunt of a man stays with someone he's not attracted to? That's not her fault.

You know what I think is going on? I think he's low key attracted to you and is probably why your ex friend thinks you've seduced him since I'm sure he's telling her how gross she is compared to you.

I hate how full of herself my best friend is. She makes a good amount of money (900$ or so per month) but she's living with her parents and she doesn't pay for anything, so her money's only to spend on her, i.e. make up, concerts, going to parties, etc. I see no problem with that, I understand that some people have it better than others, that's just how life goes.
Well, she doesn't see it that way. She's always complaining about how other people spends their money and claiming that she works sooo hard to make her money and pay her bills (nonsense, what bills? As I said, she doesn't contribute with any money in her house, which is a luck nowadays! Nor even gas or light). Also, she's the first one who jokes about doing nothing in her work, even posting it in social media. She's the most avaricious person I've known -she doesn't want to spend more than 7 bucks on a friend's birthday present, making us - the rest of friends- having to spend more, even when, for example, I make not even a third of her income, but she says she can't be selfish at all, that people is always thinking about money and she doesn't care about it that much. Well, because she doesn't actually have to spend it in important things!
It pisses me off because I know in her head she's the shit even when people have called her out because of this, when actually it makes her seem as a jerk and a joke.

dating someone with crippling anxiety is so draining. i've been dating my boyfriend for 8 months and i love him but sometimes it is so hard not to feel frustrated. he's the type to become bedridden, be vomiting and unable to eat for days, etc. when he's anxious and sometimes i feel like a caretaker. he gets that way over things like starting a new college course or doing a group project. once i stayed at his house for a week straight because his anxiety was so bad that he couldn't function.

i fully know its not his fault and i've never once considered breaking up with him over it. i'm just so upset recently. last night i tried talking to him about my own problems and he fell asleep during the conversation. it left me feeling really embarrassed that i had spilled out my emotions and apparently it was so boring that someone could fall asleep during it. meanwhile today i'm back to comforting him because of his anxiety.

His anxiety isn't his fault, but just because he might suffer a lot, it doesn't make your problems any less valid. Even if you're just having a bad day and just want to complain a bit, he should pay equal attention and care to you as you to him.

I loved him, more than I've loved anyone and I know we could have been so happy and all but it was killing me. I always had to be the one being fine, strong for both of us and that was impossible.
It's not fair that you have to feel so alone being in a relationship with someone who's supossed to be suporting at least.

I'm not mad over the guy, I'm really mad at what she's doing. Honestly I wouldn't have taken him in if I'd known this would happen though I'm glad I saw her true colours that she'd backstab me and rage against me out of nowhere. Also the guy isn't into me, and I know he didn't tell her that he finds me attractive or anything about her body to her cause he hasn't talked to her since the breakup and in the breakup he didn't mention looks or anything. As for dating her he really liked her personality at the beginning and thought he could look past her looks but then she let herself get lazy in life and work and gave up a promising future so that's why the breakup happened.
And yeah, when I read what I said about her looks it was really harsh and out of line. After her raging against my looks to friends and acting like me being thin means anyone into me is some basic fuck who doesn't actually love me really hurt especially combined with her going on and on about what a goddess she is compared to me or anyone like me. Though what I said shouldn't have been said because girls with bigger bodies or flat assss aren't terrible, she's just the one who's terrible and by insulting her that way I basically insulted anyone else with that so I'm sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings in my rant

Today was supposed to be the first day of my diet and I was doing so well (only 500 calories between breakfast and lunch) all day. The moment I got home I was fucking starving and exhausted from college and I ate yogurt, banana and biscuits with milky tea before dinner. Doesn't sound like much but I know from experience that that's enough to ruin my weight loss.

I'm so angry at myself. Why can't I just survive off of 1k calories a day like it says I'm "supposed" to? Why does my stupid body fall asleep during class and make me crave sugary shit when I'm just trying to cut back a little? When I'm restricting, I feel like I'm going to faint and I become obsessed with getting that one thing I'm craving (even when I try to eat something healthy instead, it tastes bland and doesn't satisfy me) until I finally get it.

I fucking hate my body and I feel like I'm always going to be ugly and overweight. Just kill me.

Hey! One bad day is not enough to beat yourself up over. It’s one day.

Learn from this. If you can, remove the temptations from your home. Donate them, give them to a friend, throw them out if you have to. Then pack a small, low calorie snack for when you start feeling cravings in school.

Start your calorie restriction small. Consistent, slow weight loss is better than extreme restriction folllowed by binging. Give yourself manageable goals. If 1200 feels too small right now (the recommended minimum) maybe go halfway instead. Allow your body to adjust and wean itself off the sugary crap.

Besides that, are you sure 800 calories a day is healthy for you and your body type? That’s a 1000 calorie deficit daily. Only 500 calories in the morning will of course lead to you feeling deprived by the evening.

There are many many downsides to eating far too few calories
https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/calorie-restriction-risks#section4
https://www.livestrong.com/article/518807-negative-side-effects-of-eating-less-than-1-200-calories-a-day/

You should be eating 1200 a day. That’s still a 600 deficit, so you’ll see results… just slower. Weight loss is not a race, it’s a complete lifestyle change. You want to be healthy for as long as possible, right? You don’t want to binge anymore? You need to overhaul your way of thinking about dieting.

Sappy post incoming: You get one body. That body has to carry you around for your entire life. Your lifespan is dependent on how you treat your body. It is not an accessory, it is not an enemy. It is the one thing in this life which can bring you happiness or end you. Don’t fight it. Love it, be kind to it. Nourish it with the right foods, in the right amounts. Be grateful for your legs which carry you to beautiful places, be grateful for your arms which allow you to hug and be hugged. Be grateful for your stomach which takes what you put in and gives you energy, nourishment, and health. Your body is the most brilliant thing that exists, whether there is extra chub or not enough. Don’t punish your body. Love it. Take care of it. Feed it healthy food, move it so that it’ll stay flexible and strong. Thank your body for taking you to class, thank your body for carrying that brilliant brain all day (heads are pretty heavy, yo). So you indulged a little too much today. It’s one day. And if you treat your body right, there are so many more days to come. The important thing is that you care. You care about your body, you care what you consume. Just make sure that care is productive and healthy, not destructive and obsessive. Your body should be your best friend. Be kind to it. Be kind to yourself.

Good luck, anon. And remember, it’s just one day. Focus on tomorrow, and next month, next year, the next ten years. This is a long journey to health, one that will span your entire life. Embrace it. Give yourself long-term, healthy, and achievable goals.

Serious question anon: Do you take any vitamins or supplements?
My calorie deficit is about 1.2k like the other anon mentioned, and sometimes I eat even lower than that if I'm not hungry. Before I started taking them I was a hungry obeast fuck like all the time.
It could be your body trying to make up for nutritional deficiencies by telling your brain it's hungry even when you're not.

Personally I skip breakfast (I know it's not feasible for everyone though). If I do have breakfast it's nuts or eggs for energy. I take my vitamins and wash it down with lots of water. I save my calorie budget for dinner and snacks because they fulfill me more. That way I don't feel as deprived in the night. I also make sure to walk minimum 2 miles a day.

So far I've lost about 10 pounds and I'm not struggling to do it everyday. Yeah the weight loss can be slow, but frankly so was my weight gain.
If you're curious about what supplements mine's
>a general multivitamin for women
>Vitamin D3 5000mg (I'm deficient from being fat and being inside a lot–but I taper because too much of this vit isn't good either)
>CoQ-10 100mg (heart and cardio)
>Biotin 5000mg (hair, nails)
>Vitamin B-1 100mg (carb metabolism)
>Magnesium 250mg (nerve, muscle, cardio)
>Vitamin B12 1000mg (energy and metabolism)
>Glucosamine Chondroitin 3000mg (lubricates joints so I don't hurt when I exercise)
Anyway I know taking vitamins isn't for everyone either but it works really well for me so far. I do feel different compared to just a month ago.

I feel you anon. People like her are jut crazy. A year ago one of my uni 'friends' gave away my number to her male friend she was fucking at the time. She told me they had been fuckbuddies for 2 years already and it was time for him to get a gf. So I start messaging the guy and we set up a date, it was nice, cool. All of a sudden girl goes full on psycho accusing me of doing things behind her back and trying to steal her man, making me look bad to our circle of friends. Your ex friend reminds me of her.

I also have misphonia. It is worst when people are eating. The noise is horrible. It was worse when I was younger, to the point where I would have the urge to stab myself with the fork I was eating with. Taking anti-anxiety medication has helped me.

chewing, swallowing, coughing, throat-clearing, mouth sounds while talking (like, hearing the saliva), chewing, dish-washing (the banging sounds), hearing talking coming from other rooms, people talking with their mouth full

these sounds only bother me when specific people make them (usually people ive been exposed to for a very long period of time). the only time i can think where strangers triggered my miso was when there was this woman chewing with her mouth wide open like a pig at a restaurant

yeah, man. it has made me cry from rage. i havent had a single meal my family for like 6 years and i cant crry a conversation with my mom because i cant stand her voice or laugh. anti-anxiety meds never worked for me unfortunately

I feel like a child. I've been going to bar trivia for probably 3 years now with the same group of people almost every week. It’s such a normal part of my life that I never even really consciously have to think about if I’m gonna go or not that week. I just go like always.
I move 3 hours away in a few months. I wasn’t feeling particularly upset about this until I realized that means I’m giving up my bar trivia and my bar trivia friends. Next week will most likely be my last week. I can’t stop crying. I miss my trivia friends so much already. I know 3 hours isn’t that bad, but I have to adjust to not going every week.
It’s such a dumb thing to be upset about, but it’s the only thing I’m going to miss. I don’t know what I’m gonna do without it until I learn to adjust. I need routine and structure to function properly. Fuck. Fuck.

white guys and asian guys who date/fuck/marry black women absolutely repulse me. i don't care about black women dating their fellow blacks or even non-white hispanics or indians (the dot kind) or shit, but i actually feel a little sick whenever i see a white/asian dude wasting his time with a black.

i know i shouldn't even be bothered by it since black women - barring famous ones like beyonce, rhianna, lupita, serena, etc. - are universally considered the most unattractive females of any race and men are least likely to race-mix with them. especially asian men who legit think they're apes and barely date/fuck outside of their race for white girls, let alone niggers.

but even if it's just a white dude who hooks up with a black girl once, i can't help but find him disgusting and ruined. i'm not actually mad about it - i'm grateful he's removed himself from the dating pool and marked himself as an oil-driller so i don't waste my time, but i'm always confused and curious like… why you got a bestiality fetish, my dude? why would you fuck anything that has a 98% chance of having an std from the age 15 and on? and niggers stink, let's be honest. why would you do that to yourself? any self-respecting white woman worth her salt isn't going to be able to look past you going chimp hunting.

i don't know why it makes me so mad since it's not like i've even encountered it irl. none of my black female friends are into non-black men at all and i don't think i've ever seen an xM/BF couple outside of the media. the thought is just so nasty. i'm honestly not jealous, just grossed out.

like when prince harry married markle, i was just baffled. it made more sense when even normies were like, "he's clearly gay and she's his beard - they picked a vaguely black actress since she could play the role and would look good on the royal family's 'i've got a black friend' resume". but i was legit still baffled why anyone in their right mind would choose markle for anything - she's legit a 40 year old, ex-prostitute, divorced, C-list american nigger. she's obsessed with white dudes, so there was a whole string of them (presumably not gay ones) before harry, so it's insane to me that white guys actually enjoy black whores. white men, i don't know if you got the memo, but we left that behind in the plantation days.

i think what it really comes down to is that i'm sick of it being shoved in my face via movies/tv. spiderman? ofc peter parker has a mongrel nigger love interest. scandal? nigger lead with white men fawning over her, one of whom is the fucking president. remember when merlin turned guinevere into a full-on slave nigger and made her queen? lmao. that awful 'everything, everything' movie that bombed because no one relates to a nigger female lead and relatability is the only reason women care about romance movies at all? the black chick in vampire diaries having to kill all her black love interests and go through a string of white dudes. like, this doesn't happen irl… stop shoving it down my damn throat because it's actually causing racist thoughts i'd never had before.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
