Does wearing deoderant/antiperspirant repeatedly make you smell worse over time? I feel like it blocks your pores and makes the bacteria build up. I feel like when I wear more deoderant I smell worse when it comes off.
Im not talkimg about natural deoderants either, I'm talking about the big brands like secret, dove etc.

I dated an Asian dude who I was surprised to learn never wore deodorant, because he was taught not to or else he would smell bad forever. And the weirdest thing was that it was actually true - he never smelled, but his brother - who tried deodorant - smells bad without it. So, you might be right, or it might be a race thing, or a conditioned thing. You might need an honest friend to let you know how you smell.

No. 454407

Personally, it makes my skin itch and I've also noticed it makes me smell worse when it fades off.

No. 454522

Actually I was just about to ask how can I figure out what I smell like lol. I'm Asian, but I'm not really sure if I have that gene for body odor or not. The few friends I've asked what I smelled like usually say "nothing" and I don't know if they're just being nice or truthful? I'll smell my gym clothes after using them for a couple of really sweaty workouts and they don't smell bad to me, just sort of like… plums? Something sweet. But I always assumed since it's my own body odor of course it wouldn't smell bad lol. On the other hand, my parents bath towel stinks from their BO. I do use deodorant but it's mostly because I don't like the sticky feeling of my sweat building up under there.

My lactose intolerance is so confusing to me. I've established that I can have most dairy products and things cooked with milk (cake, pancakes, etc) with little to no consequences. I know that I can't have straight up milk in any form, not drinking it straight or even with cereal (I used to wet the cereal with milk and then avoid as much of the milk as possible/throw it out at the end). I made my oatmeal with milk the other day in the microwave and my stomach was fine, but I figured since I cooked it in the microwave that's what made it okay. Last night I made overnight oats with milk (i.e. no heat of any sort was used) and I'm still fine after eating it this morning… Just what the fuck is going on with my lactose intolerance? Will this fuck me up in the long run or can I keep going like this as long as my stomach is fine with it? Those overnight oats were god damn good. I have my own soymilk that I drink, but it's a bit expensive compared to regular milk so I don't really want to use it for oats.

Some people say that cats are pretty independent but I still worry about it being lonely…

No. 454572

As long as you're home most evenings to spend time with the cat I don't think that's bad, at least for an adult cat. I would recommend getting two cats so they can always keep each other company when you're at work.

I'm worried that I don't have enough space for two cats. I have a one bedroom, one bathroom, small kitchen apartment kind of affair.

No. 454579

Cats sleep about 16 hours a day and are busy cleaning themselves during a bunch of their waking hours as well, so it won't be lonely too much. But it would be good to adopt a cat with a more lazy nonchalant demeanor; some are more needy, social, and playful.

No. 454581

Honestly as long as you don't live in a total shoebox and utilize your space wisely I don't think it would be a problem. Cats love to climb so you can use vertical space to your advantage.
A pair of older cats would definitely be good, they'll just laze around and don't need as much space to run around since they're less energetic than kittens. Each individual cat has their own personality, though, so if you adopt just ask the shelter for lazy couch potato cats.

Can somebody explain what the fuck 'non-dairy' actually means? Because all of these coffee creamers, sauces, etc. say 'non-dairy' and then when I look on the back at the ingredients list it says 'Contains: Milk'. How the fuck? What the fuck? Does it contain human milk?

>They do not contain lactose and therefore are commonly described as being non-dairy products, although many contain casein, a milk-derived protein.

so it's milk derived but because it doesn't contain lactose, they can skirt by with "non-dairy". makes no sense to me, but functionally, i guess it does because people generally buy non-dairy items because of the lactose intolerance, though that's changing what with veganism

Do any multilingual anons have suggestions on how to improve a language I speak?

It's a language I was fluent in as a child but a few years have gone by where I didn't have the opportunity to practice because it's a minority language and I'm losing it. I guess my main problem is vocab so I might struggle mid-sentence to say something I'd have no problem being able to say in english or I don't understand an important word someone said and I miss the point of what they're trying to say lol. I just want to be able to speak at a natural pace and not have to second-guess everything I'm saying. There are very few people who speak the language so there isn't a lot of media I can use to "immerse" myself with.

Some things I'm going to try:
>reading/watching the news daily
>re-reading some books I have
>talking to myself during the day and trying to think in the language
>keeping a diary of new words I learn

Something I'm curious about as a dumb kissless virgin: what do women do when it comes to wearing makeup during sex? I assume any makeup you're wearing on your face would get messed up, do people just accept that as a part of sex or are there like…secret tips on how to avoid a mess?

I know there's the whole "messy/runny mascara" trope in porn, and lipstick tends to transfer when kissing, but in most portrayals of sex the woman's face looks basically flawless and I feel like that's probably not realistic. Is "sex-proof" makeup a thing people worry about/invest in or do they just not care?

No. 454972

sex isn't that messy anon, if you can wear it during a retail job you can wear it during sex.

No. 454973

I do every one of those and I try to participate in online conversations of said language. It's easier than IRL because you can quick google the word you need if you feel stuck. Plus if you're chatting to someone you can ask them to correct you.
Tandem is a great place but you will get hit on.

No. 454979

Is it possible to have a stalker but you're attracted to them?

No. 454983

Well first of all, the reason why makeup in porn tends to look flawless is because there's a lot more scene cuts. Some scenes are taped at different intervals, enough time to retouch a smudged eye line or reapply lipstick. And also there tends to be less romantic intimacy like kissing between the actors.
Doesn't mean it's the case for all. If you ever seen blowjob porn the makeup gets absolutely fucked because of all the gagging and tearing up.

It really depends, anon. My makeup tends to get messed up because when I have sex with my partners I'm heavily making out with them. My foundation rubs off and my eyeliner smudges and collects in my eye ducts. The sweat usually fucks my hair too. Sometimes my face gets mashed into a pillow and it's inevitable.
When the sex is less intense my makeup fares better.

Most guys I've been with never commented or cared. The ones who did were weenies and cumbrains who couldn't understand how sweat and friction could take off makeup.

is it a super niche major? if it's something versatile like a business degree, it's not really that big of a deal. honestly in the current economy it's more important to have a degree than what it's about. you'd be surprised how many people end up going into fields that have nothing to do with their major.

I currently have a temp job at an office and this is my current life. My state's library has an online catalog so on occasion I'll read books through there, but I mostly spend time on LC or reading comics or some shit. I sit at the front desk so I can't watch videos that don't have subtitles available (I don't like to put in earbuds or anything in case we do have guests come by), so I keep it to comfy and cozy videos like Li Ziqi's video, crafting videos, or people who have subtitled videos. I just finish rewatching an anime, but I really don't watch anime in the office that much. I don't read or browse LC at all at home so that posts can pile up and I can read them the next day (makes my home life nicer because I don't blow hours on here, I also regularly keep up with a bunch of ot threads so I have a lot to read). I started reading Homestuck because I knew it would take a while to finish and would keep me busy.

I originally wanted to spend the time learning useful skills like excel or quickbooks, but I have a hard time applying myself to studies when I'm not in a classroom setting. It sucks that a lot of self study material that I find are un-subtitled videos too. My gig is only temp and I'm slowly starting to get sick of it, so hopefully I'll eventually get off my ass and do some productive shit. I like indulging in browsing LC or social media and not being worry free, but now I'm starting to feel overindulged and it's not the same feeling as when you take a quick peek while taking a break from some long assignment.

Can any other Amerifags please explain our fucked health insurance system to me? What the hell is this premium tax credit? Even reading the explanation, I'm still a bit confused. Say if I go for a metal plan that originally costs $500 but I qualify for $300 tax credit, does that mean I pay $500 each month until I file for taxes then get the $300 (per month) back in my refund? Or do I just pay $200 every month and that's it?

What even makes some health insurance companies good/better than others? Is it how widely accepted they are, their pricing (their premiums/deductibles vs other health insurance companies), what they cover, their customer service? In my mind, the only thing that matters being good is my doctor, so as long as my health insurance is accepted by the doctors that I want to go to, does it really matter what insurance I'll pick (if the price points are similar)? I've never bought health insurance on my own, so I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing.

No. 455491

former health insurance fag here to help bb.

>premium tax credit is something you get based on income, it's like tax refund for health insurance specifically, and you get it with your refund

the only difference between companies/plans is the coverage, smaller insurances don't have access to as many doctors as larger companies. keep in mind that companies usually offer 2 types of the same plan HMO and PPO. HMO is a plan based around your PCP (primary care doctor) working with their own network of providers, meaning you can't go to any dr or specialist you want, and you'll need a referral from your PCP. downsides to HMO are basically that you're tied to your PCP's network. PPO is easier, allowing you to go to any doctor you want that is covered by your insurance, but still lets you have a PCP. the downside to PPO is that you research your own specialists outside your PCP and doctors outside network are less eager to communicate with one another about your health issues. PPOS are usually cheaper, and designed for people with less health issues overall.

I was reading into it a bit more and it says I could get the PTC in advance to help pay for my insurance or choose not to. The silver plan I want is so expensive without it, but I used to earn a lot more at my old job so when I file for my taxes, I'm afraid taking the PTC in advance will make me end up owing a lot on my taxes.

I live in MA as well. I've only lived in three states so far, but I'd say MA is all right. It's supposed to have the most educated people and best healthcare in the nation, if I'm not mistaken. Boston is one of the most expensive cities in the nation, but as long as you have a car or access to public transit you can live outside of it and commute in. It still hasn't been my favorite place to live by a stretch. It's missing something.

New England is all right, but the cost of living is so much higher than places like in the south. Also we do have a homeless problem, but it's not as bad as places like Los Angeles.

I would say Mississippi and Alabama seem like utter shitholes for women. I've heard worse things about Mississippi though.

No. 456632


I took (alprazolam) xanax a few times as i was prescribed and hated it. i guess it does lower anxiety but only because it substitutes it with much worse depression, i felt like dying, no energy, i felt like i was trapped in a dark hole, it was the worst, i was supposed to take it for a couple weeks but after 2 or 3 days i could not handle it anymore and quit. I do not understand why would anyone take it recreationally.

No. 456637

They do but honestly swiping a few pills from your sister wouldn't have done anything. Oftentimes those medications require a cycle of dosing before you notice a difference, not to mention there's a lot of medications for anxieties so even between doctors and patients a lot of it is trial and error to find the one that works the best. When I was in grad school and having bad anxiety I took escitalopram (lexapro), and then years later when I was having bad episodes at a shitty job, Wellbutrin. Then Vyvanse to be used for my binge eating which was how I was coping, and lack of energy.

I'd say each one made me feel "leveled out" if that makes sense. Thing is I didn't feel like my emotions swung one way or another, it was a constant humming normalcy. Wellbutrin and Vyvanse gave me a much needed energy boost at the time. Although my least favorite insofar as side effects was the Wellbutrin.

No. 456639

Some them you have to take for several weeks before they take effect, some (benzos) are immidiate and you should be able to tell if the dosing was right.

How tf do condoms actually break and how do you know it “broke” b4 you get pregnant? I always thought it was a meme. Do they like leak when a guy pulls out or something?

No. 456852

If they "break" it's due to improper fit, expired condoms, or using an oil-based lube.
The actual failure of the condom itself is a small chance.
Literally the thing busts apart. So after sex there's a very obvious tear in the condom. Sometimes you can 'feel' too much wetness in your vagina and cum always has a distinguishable smell and fluidity to it.

What happens most often is that the condom slips off and cum leaks inside. Sometimes a guy cums so much and keeps going that the pressure forces the cum up the condom and out the sides. It goes back to the improper fit and use issues, some guys are dumb.
You get dumbshits who don't want to spend the extra to get the bigger condoms if they're hung, or you get the napoleon complex small dudes who want to pretend they fit an xl when in reality it's hanging on their dicks like garbage bags.
Always check to see how the guy puts his on.

My doc prescribed Depakote (divalproex sodium) after using up Remeron and so far so good. Additionally, she prescribed Inderal (propranolol) which I take whenever I'm in a middle of a panic attack supposedly to calm me down while going through it.

Also keep track of who you leave every room key with and if anyone is bringing extra guests. You're entitled to know all of it bc its your liability.

No. 457704

Essentially I am a mostly straight girl, and I get off to a range of normal fantasies.. but what I realize is that the common thread in most everything that gets me off is the perverted male perspective. Like if I'm reading a story, yes, I think boobs are cool but I need to know what the man thinks about them to get off. I need to know that the man is objectifying and adoring the woman.. and I fucking hate that. Moreover, most of the stories I read have the woman in a submissive/degrading position.

I can't help but feel that I have been conditioned by society to need male objectification to feel things are sexy. I don't want to be this way. I wonder if I can change what turns me on somehow?? I guess I'd have to stop reading erotic stories and just… think of less sexist shit on my own?

No. 457716

It sounds pretty cerebral to get off on what your (imagined) partner thinks. You may be projecting onto the woman as the object of the man’s desire.
I think it’s possible to be healthy about this though, like if you were in a relationship of course you’d want your partner to find you ‘fuckable’, the hard part is figuring out if the man is sane enough to respect all the things about a woman that aren’t to do with fucking. You just need the cut out the degrading position part.

I'm in that same boat. Going no contact with a guy I cut a lot of people off for. I was aware of abuse coming out of a past relationship and didn't even recognise any signs again. I let myself get isolated and codependent again. Recently cut contact after finding out about another massive betrayal that concludes I will never know the full truth of what occurred in my own relationship. I so desperately want the wool pulled over my eyes, but for the first time I walked away and didn't confront the betrayal for once. I didn't ask questions. I didn't give him a way to weasel back in. I thought he'd apologise or plead or something by now, he's been sending goodnight texts for days. I snapped yesterday and sent a brief text saying I hate your lies, what would be the point knowing you without knowing you? I also said I'm getting tested by the doctor bexahs sod infidelity scares. That was 24 hours ago and I've heard nothing. He didn't send a goodnight text either. Think it's been confirmed I've been cheated on lol. It's hard to focus at the minute. I have a lot of unanswered questions and I have to make peace I'm not going to get answers and even if I was to ask him, there's no trusting what he says.

Idk if youre cutting off an ex and they're your closest peer, but no contact sucks. Just keep reminding yourself why you aren't contacting them.

didn't want to necro the japan thread so i'll ask this here: can i get some basic tips for saving money on a weeklong trip to tokyo? i haven't been there in several years but i definitely fell into tourist traps last time and went way over budget. tips on how to save on lodging, public transport, restaurants, SIM/wifi would be amazing

No. 457816

Someone else will probably have a lot better advice, but personally I do really well when I give myself a daily budget. The last time I went, I took out enough cash beforehand to give myself $100 per day for food and nonsense spending. Using my card was basically forbidden (difficult to use anyway, I only used it once my entire trip to pay for Disney tickets). That might be a little tight for some people so you can adjust it to what you think is more realistic for yourself, but it helped me take a step back and think about all the trinkets I was about to impulse buy ("would I rather buy this or splurge on dinner tonight?" sort of thought process). It was enough for me and I still had some cash leftover at the end.

As for lodging, I've only ever used airbnb when I travel to Japan. The last time I went, I was with two other friends, so we were able to book a small apartment all to ourselves in a pretty central location for about $300 per person. We ended up not paying that much for transportation since we got lucky and our airbnb was right by the Yamanote line (where most of the places we wanted to go was on). The first time I ever visited Tokyo I made the mistake of booking a super cheap airbnb that was so far out, it cost 1200yen one way to get in/out of the city center lol. Another time (my second time) I was travelling alone so I booked basically what was a little hostel spot near Akiba through airbnb that cost about $240 for a week and a half. It was basically sort of like a capsule hotel with shared amenities in the apartment, but it got the job done and was super cheap so I have no complaints about it. I also like airbnbs because some spots come with pretty good pocket wifi, my latest one that I shared with friends did! Definitely saved me the trouble of having to deal with buying a SIM and whatnot.

Can't offer much help about restaurants but I find that generally they weren't that expensive no matter where we went (then again, we didn't really go to super high end places either lol. We didn't cheap out completely on food either).

Sorry if nothing here is helpful for you! I do hope you have a good time. It's definitely easy to get sucked into the tourist traps and whatnot lol, ufo catchers are a personal weakness of mine.

As for the rest of the stuff i think is normal, most memories of my childhood are very matter of fact too and i don't feel strongly any which way about them. My recolections start getting much more subjective at around my teenage years. Stuff from childhood might mean a lot more subconsciously though.

No. 458084

It's probably just to do with sentiment and how people remember things. I have a lot of early childhood memories I can recall with fondness because my homelife from age 12 took a bad turn. I stayed active in school and had a big social circle and got myself involved socially. Went to loads of parties, dated etc but I struggle to recall those memories only a decade later, but memories from childhood like family holidays etc stick far more in my mind. From all the shit I did as a teenager my more vivid memories are being by myself at home on the computer or chilling with my cat lol

Does instagram have some sort of explore page or something for stories? I have a really lowkey account that I don’t post actual posts on, only the occasional story about really uninteresting things, and yesterday and today it shows that I have about 100 people view it when usually it’s only around 70ish (mostly friends, sometimes the occasional nonfollower). I have no idea where these people are coming from. I’ve also seen it where there’s weird uneven view counts, like out of 5 posted stories only the very first and very last have a high amount of views instead of the same/descending amount. I do keep my profile on public, but I’ve never had this many randos look at my stuff before.

No. 458211

I have no idea why they're watching your stories, the explore feature only showcases hashtagged or viral stories. Is the account new? Instagram suggests new accounts to people to follow.
However the uneven view count is from where someone skips to the next story before fully finishing the one they're watching. This is why very short stories have a high view count and if your stories have a sequence to them, people might watch first story but then just want to skip straight to the last story for a conclusion.

Oh gotcha! Didn't know that you had to watch a story for it to count! I figured people skipped but I've never seen the view count go from so low to high before. My account isn't new though, I think I've had it for almost 10 years now.

I'd get this if I actually did stuff on the app besides occasionally post on my stories and talk to friends via DMs but honestly I don't think I really do much to show up on other people's notifications or pages… I haven't commented on anyone's stuff for a while, and most of the time don't even like posts (I'll usually save stuff though).

Nope! I completely archived my entire feed and all the highlights I used to have. It's a completely empty public page that I only use for the stories feature. It's so strange!

I don’t know how, I’m afraid. I haven’t confirmed properly that I am but there’s no other explanation to dark underarms that I’ve read and my body seems ‘normal’ because my diet is already pretty good - I never drink soda and stopped putting sugar in my tea and coffee which wasn’t too hard because 1)soda is like guzzling syrup to me and 2)I drink less of those because I want to avoid staining my teeth. I don’t keep junk food in the house and only eat ice cream a few times in the summer. None of this was advice to lower my blood sugar, it’s just the way my lifestyle already is. Basically you don’t want huge spikes by dumping a sugar source on yourself at random points in time. Idk if a keto diet may help or if that’s just people applying keto to everything these days.

Intermittent fasting helps with insulin resistance. I didn't even know I had it but started doing 16:8 fasts for weight loss and it was super successful, then my dr confirmed I was insulin resistant and that the fasting is a big help for it (IR also makes it super hard to lose weight).

Is something wrong with my brain if I've never felt motivated my entire life? I never cared about doing well in school, or getting a career, or doing anything worthwhile with my life. I've had dreams of having some type of artistic job and living in a nice house somewhere, but never have enough drive to ever accomplish anything, and I get burnt out easily.

Nope, if you get burned out easily you're probably just a low energy person who doesn't see those things as important enough to be worth the hard work.

Everything I wear is form-fitting or only slightly loose as a result.

people make the arwen thing with the light skin and long hair even if you dont look like her tbh so i figure why not go with it? yes, for coverup and i have to battle with unattractive and irritating kp. i meant more like that i would like recommendations on "natural" sneakers and certain dark, minimalist dresses that are a little form fitting, but are more 'natural' and simple. not like, industrial/gothy or sporty, because there's really no natural/delicate and simple, but form fitting stuff that isn't either really alternative or costumey i couldnt find any decent examples quickly for op pic but, just simple stuff that is dark that can look ok with very simple sneakers that look less sporty. ive never heard of a sneaker that was meant to look 'natural' and simple other than maybe eco sneaks? for the dress i meant id prefer form fitting but also not form fitting if possible. realistically it suits the natural aesthetic better to not be form fitting, and i wish i could wear loose stuff, but if you have fat limbs you really cannot

i know, it sounds weird, but it's a thing. shes chubby but pic related looks TERRIBLE in loose clothes because her limbs are fat while her stomach is pretty thin in comparison. im sure you can imagine why she'd look bad in loose/unfitted clothing. except unlike her no matter how low i go my limbs stay out of proportion and i retain more fat in my lower limbs, mostly lower arms, lower legs than she does, so it looks much worse. since skinnies are too uncomfortable anyways, really cute looser high waisted 90s jeans with a splaying out at the thickest part of my fat knees and calves and adding more bulk doesnt make me look thinner either

omg thank you, exactly!! it's frustrating too because i much prefer the natural, gauzy, flowing, effortless look, but our limbs just can't handle all of the focus to be on them with no emphasis toward the waist and hip. so i'm the same, relegated to wearing form fitting things when that's really not the aesthetic i'm into. even when i'm underweight i still look so off without it. thank you, will take your advice!

Unfortunately I don't think dresses look good with sneakers at all. It's always gonna end up looking kinda dumpy, especially with something that is form-fitting. >>459753 looks okay-ish but it would have looked actually good with a shoe that is semi-smart like the dress itself.

If you go for a two piece outfit that has waist definition you'll find sneakers go a lot more naturally. Crop tops that show your waist are also an option since you're slimmest there. Shorts always look good with sneakers, they're a natural match. Shorts that are high-cut but with flaring leg holes might work since you seem to describe yourself as heavier in the lower legs? It's like a reverse flare leg jean, might make your lower part look more proportionate by giving your thighs more volume. Not sure but worth trying some outfits right?

Do bangles or shawls flatter you? I like wearing a kimono or cardigan off one shoulder for an asymmetrical flowy look and it helps give my form-fitting outfits some life. As for the bracelet idea I have never used those but they're kinda fun and might make your lower arms seem slimmer since they'd be loose. Like tricking the eye into thinking your arms are so thin the bracelet is moving freely… make sense?

how come whenever I pull an all-nighter, my body has a hard time regulating its temperature the second day? like I am so cold right now even though I've been under the covers I just have those… sleep-deprived chills.

I'm obvi dramatizing, I just notice that whenever I stay up all night (not often) my internal thermostat is like, "okay seriously wtf just happened??? how dare you? I'm running the show today bc your dumbass can't even fall asleep right" and then it just enters metronome mode and I Suffer

I found a few cows interesting once I started lurking but their threads aren't entertaining anymore.

How do you strictly make out with someone? I can never kiss a guy and it just be a kiss. It always leads to neck kisses (my one true weakness) which leads me to go insane as i whip a titty out and coax him to suck it. Which always leads to a guy wanting me to jerk him off. Its worse if I kiss his neck back because then they think that means I should suck their dicks. Its annoying as hell. How do I stop myself from being a horny fuckwad? Is there a pill I can take? Im more so annoyed at the fact that a guy cant just make out with me, suck a little titty without then needing to cum! Like dude its not about you!!

Hate's a strong word. I think most people dislike them rather than genuinely, truly hate them.

I don't hate kids, I just strongly dislike their behavior(ial tendencies) and noisy nature. That's nothing personal against kids, they can't help it and I know that.

Anyway I do think there's a large difference between holding prejudice against kids vs ethnicity/race/gender because kids will grow up, it's not a permanent state of being like your ethnicity/race/gender is.

Why does it seem like most girls here avoid bi guys like the plague? My boyfriend is bi and it doesn’t negatively affect our relationship at all, but when I read stuff on here… it’s like a red flag if a guy has slept with other men. Do they just not believe true bisexuality is a thing or is it a fear that a bi guy might like trans people and that’s what’s unacceptable?

I’m a bi female and I won’t ever go with any bi males. I don’t care if it’s a stereotype, because IME it’s true! Most “bi” males are scared of being considered gay, tend to be more attracted to men than women, they tend to cheat, and are well-known male whores.

Is there like a simple straightforward guide to personal hygiene?
I will admit - I am gross. I wasn't taught those things as a kid (my mom used to tell me that taking a shower once a week is okay which… ugh grossss) and as a teen I was too mentally ill to keep up with a schedule and now my entire being is a mess of grease and pimples and I am finally pissed at myself and tired enough to fix it.

Also. How do I stay motivated to keep up with things? I have no strength of will, I always forget shit, so I can stick to something maybe for a week at most. It's embarassing at this point. I am in my twenties and I can't just stick with a sleep schedule or using one skincare product.

No. 462240

I mean a shower once a day is the accepted standard in most first world countries. If you can manage that, splashing your face with water in the morning and teeth brushing twice a day.. you should be presentable

When I was a kid my parents got me to have a bath once a week too, I had friends that were the same and I think for a kid that's not insane cos they don't sweat or smell in the same way as adults. As soon as you hit puberty though it's diff

If you're in your twenties and struggling with washing/sleeping patterns are you getting proper psych help? Have you had an evaluation to diagnose you?

No. 462249

Thanks! I just… can't figure it out and googling seems even more shameful.
My dad used to wash his hair maybe once a month. It wasn't great. But I thought it was normal.

I have had psychiatric help. I have severe/clinical depression (not sure what the terminology is in other countries, but it's "major depressive disorder" I think?) among other less pressing things, such as a personality disorder and minor psychotic stuff. I've been medicated since I was 13 but it seems I am resistent to it as no drug has ever made me better.
I struggle with motivation and keeping up a lot. Have been all my life, it's extremely hard and it's only gotten worse. But therapy doesn't really help either. I know I should do those things, but I find myself just… not doing them. Silently yelling at myself that I should get up and go pee at least and continuing staring into the wall. Or I just forget to go to sleep. Or forget to eat for a day or two. It's ridiculous. It's fucking bad. I know about the things I should do, I know the reasons I should, but I struggle to just get up and get into it. I can see a point in keeping myself clean and healthy, but I also see zero point in it since I don't feel like I am a person and that I am alive. I just exist. Not doing anything at all. I can't even get myself to watch a movie really for the last couple of years. Fucking miserable existence.
I don't even fucking feel bad about this shit. I'm just numb and I don't care. But I think I should start to try to get myself out of this. And starting by getting used to simple things should probablt help? I guess? I hope so?

No. 462263

I've had a similar story with starting antidepressants at twelve. I was housebound by agoraphobia into my early twenties but even when I knew I was home all the time I made having baths a priority for some reason. It created a bit of a routine, got me out of my room and I got into nice smelling bath/shower products. Helped me feel a bit more human almost, even if I was the only person that noticed I'm clean

If it helps to hear this: personality disorders are typically at their worst in your twenties. I turned 30 last year and after nearly two decades of unrelenting depression I noticed a huge improvement. Mellowing out with age is possible with these disorders

And if you're low on motivation keeping the hygiene routine I recommend giving your teeth first priority, that counts most in the long run

No. 462282

This is good advice.

Treat your washing as an activity you are engaging with, not a chore. Use nice products, get fun clothes ready to change into afterwards.
Brushing teeth is difficult to be fun, so just think about how much more annoying it would be to have cavities and rotten teeth. Brushing is easy compared to that.
You don't have to do it every day. Have an attutude that anything is better than nothing.
You can wash just parts at a time -hair one day, body the next, for example - so it's a smaller task.

Whatever you do that's more often than your current routine is an improvement. If you wash once a week, try once every 5 days instead.

I can relate a lot, I was never explicitly taught much about hygiene and also struggle a lot with depression and complete absence of any motivation whatsoever. What helps me with staying on top of my routines is using daily lists. I keep a bullet journal, not like the meme bullet journals with the fancy overdone calligraphy and stickers and watercolor drawings and shit, but just a really simple weekly layout where I can write what I'm supposed to get done that day.
Having a concrete list of what I should do helps to keep me accountable and getting to cross everything off is satisfying. If I write down "shower" on my daily to do but end up feeling lazy, I kinda guilt myself into doing it anyway because, well, I wrote it down, and it'd be embarrassing to leave the box unchecked, right? I also have a really cloudy shit memory due to depression so having a record of the last time I cleaned something is also useful and a good wake up call.

Good luck anon, it really sucks being so apathetic and numb but even the tiniest things can help. The hardest part is making that first step, everything after just gets easier.

There’s a lot of kimono and yukata rental shops around japan, even outside of tokyo in other touristy cities like Kamakura. Though these shops specialize in pretty much traditional wear of it only, and you can usually have a shoot or walk around the city in it for a set amount of time. You’d have to go to specialized costume place that offers modified kimono for a shoot like this because… that one is showing so much skin it departs from the traditional design so much…. good luck with that.

Been dealing with shit since I was young and my family doesn't believe mental illness is a thing, just a sign of "weakness" (father telling me to get over my anxiety like he got over his depression, my parents never mentioning long lines of anxiety within my family, suicide within the family, my parents saying no one will love me after 2 failed suicide attempts and self harm, etc.)

If it's making you uncomfortable then you definitely need to say something. Trust your gut. It could just be a case of him not wanting to acknowledge that you're already all grown up and not his baby anymore, resulting in him holding onto old habits that are now inappropriate. That doesn't mean that you should let him continue, however. If it is innocent, then as a father he should feel horrified that he is making you uncomfortable in that way. If it isn't innocent, then you need to establish clear boundaries and make sure other people in your family know about them as well. He might get defensive about it at first, but I don't think that's necessarily a sign of ill-intent. If, however, the behavior continues after you tell him, I would get others involved.
