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

Anonymous 15619

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anonymous 15687

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anonymous 15692

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

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

Anonymous 15697

i feel the same way, although i'm still rather vanilla/normie by the more notorious chan standards, i'd still consider myself pretty internet desensitized, rather, i feel like a cyborg, so it's been especially difficult trying to connect with normies irl since a large portion of my teen years and plus has been spent alone on the internet. also another variable which drove me to become this internet trolling hermit was mental illness and overcoming this life challenge has made me view people who haven't (normies with stress free lives) as almost boring? like my mental illness has been such a huge part of me, i no longer know how to connect with someone unless they have gone through something similar, and these individuals also tend to be the ones in the dark corners of the internet.

i don't know. i really want to be normal again and connect with normie society but i feel like i've just been so damaged & jaded – due to a combination of poor mental health & the internet that it is just difficult to find someone who i feel can "understand me". i haven't made an irl friend for over 5 years now just because of how alien i feel compared to their lifestyles and views on life etc.

and on the other hand i'm hesitant to befriend/date someone who is just as or more so degenerate than i am; like i get it may be easier for us to connect but knowing how cynical and scary some of these internet trolls can be, i just don't think i can trust someone who has been so socially depraved for so long. kind of hypocritical huh. so i guess my goal as of right now is to prepare myself into a more mentally & socially healthy place so i can start anew and integrate into normie society as opposed to seek like minded people who are just as fucked up to validate my own degeneracy & abnormal ways of life.

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

I made my husband cry lately.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

They made me seem like a horrible person to anyone that doesn't know the truth, and it's all with lies.
I'm so dissapointed, i never once spoke badly about them or hurt them, i just wanted some peace but it has turned into a witch-hunt and awful, awful, lies said about me.

Any hope i had left in this world for people is gone.
Maybe i am not meant to have friends, since they all eventually turn on me and try to hurt me and my character.

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

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

I support you more than them since rumors are bullshit and there's no justifying it with "they deserved it," but DO NOT burn this story into your memory as "I was an angel and everyone else tortured me for absolutely no reason" - no matter how much it hurts, keep the truth in view.

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

I met the neighbor lady in her 40s. She invited me to smoke weed and said I could always talk to her. She told me about her son and said he has a bunch of plants and that I should meet him.

She seems intent on being my friend and introducing me to her son. On one hand this might make me feel better, on the other hand I have been enjoying my sobriety and was happy moving to this place where it's still illegal, having no connections or stores nearby made there be no temptation. Now there's temptation and self control involved in my sobriety.

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

I also refuse to play the music I like for groups of people and for anyone other than my 1 friend and sister. I'm so scarred by how music taste gets equated to intelligence or taste, it's illogical, but I felt like such a piece of shit as a kid and that feeling has not left me as an adult.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

>>15931

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

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

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

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

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

why do i find myself disgusted at the majority of people? i have very few friends and have never had a boyfriend simply because if they cannot adhere to the high standards & values i set for myself, i do not want to associate with them. for example, i take care of my body, exercising & eating well, i take care of my skin, hair, etc. to be presentable to the public. i take care of my mind by reading books and learning new things like a language or instrument. i always strive to put my time to good use. even when i was depressed, i read tons of stoic philosophy & consumed media which allowed me to overcome those challenges.

now when people tell me their problems, i can't help by feel disgust towards them as i believe most of their troubles can be solved with a little discipline/will power & effort except most are unwilling and simply let life defeat them. i find this weak and i don't want to be around these sorts of people.

as i am in my 20s, i find more and more of my friends have let life's circumstances defeat them, as someone who has battled eating disorders, troubled family & depression & even trauma, i have no sympathy for these people.

so my point is, is this a normal kind of feeling? and do others feel similarly? am i being close minded or should i continue doing me?

Well it's not like it's their "fault" that they lack strength of will. For me it's more of pitying them, but I try not to think of them as inferior all across the board. A lot of people very talented in some single discipline lack any kind of strength of character outside of it, it'd be silly not to try to learn from them in that one discipline because of that.

Most girls do this.

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

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


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

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

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

In high school I used to be one of the smartest kids and I used to be able to solve every problem so easily, and now I don't know how to learn to solve problems, I never had to learn because it all came intuitively to me. it sucks and I feel so dumb

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

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

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

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

>Acted like a "imma tough brahhh im a sex machine beast" in front of his male friends… cringe
>Immature despite being a fucking 30 year old
>Liked fighting over small things and admitted that he'd start shit with me just because he was bored
>Texted me when i was abroad and asked me to stop everything i was doing and do a cartwheel in front of a monument and tell my sibling to take a picture. i said no and he got legit pissed… lolwut. that was right before i broke up with him
>Kept spending money on shit even though he knew we had to save (i.e tried to buy an expensive e-cig to vape even though he didn't even smoke and was told by the salesman he shouldn't spend money on it…lmao)
>Got herpes from a literal prostitute (or maybe a girl he was seeing) when we broke up, he doesn't know who gave it to him
>Described in detail how he fucked prostitutes when we were apart just to hurt me and to seem ~~desirable~~ (because he wasn't paying to get them to fuck him amirite?) since I found a new bf at the time
>Overly jealous to the point we couldn't have a rational conversation because he didn't listen to anything, jealous of my female friends
>Always talking about "GOD GOD GOD GOD! CHRISTIANS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE" while simultaneously not doing anything christian in his life, or praying, giving a shit about Jesus. AKA fake christian.
>Made fun of me when I told him I had my doubts about god's existence and when I told him I'd start calling myself agnostic from now on, said I was only doing that because "atheists are cool now"
>Had a hateboner for atheists and would go on and on for hours about how NO ONE CAN BE AN ATHEIST, EVERYONE SECRELTLY BELIEVES IN GOD
>would let his dog take a shit in his mouth if it tried, he was a huge dognutter and ignored his other pet which he was supposed to still take care of
>hated his own race and nationality and acted like he was better than the rest of them even though he can't change where he was born or his race
>always bragging over dumb shit he did at his dead end job because he was a college dropout. after losing his job he couldn't get another for years
>never proactive, he was all talk
>was slowly becoming an alcoholic
>lived in absolute filth, had bottles everywhere in his room

Thanks so much! I just downloaded that book. (by the way to everyone reading, you can get tons of books online from Library Genesis.)
I don't find solving the problems a hard task, I could do it all day, but I get stuck at every problem so I read the solutions so I can learn from them (which is probably not very good). From today I've decided not to look at the solutions all the time anymore.

I have immense regret over not starting to learn how to code earlier. I'm in a community college right now and while I do really well in the classes themselves, I feel envious of my classmates who know stuff I don't, some even have internships already and are doing that in addition to school. The amount of stuff there is to learn feels so vast. I go on /g/ sometimes and don't know what the hell they're talking about most of the time.
I googled an old classmate of mine who I was friends with, he's attending an Ivy league college, already has a lot of personal projects, 2 years of an internship he started in high school, and in addition he is a great artist and musician. While I'm happy he's doing so well for himself, it makes me disappointed in myself for not really trying to do anything in high school, all I did was play video games and watch anime instead of anything useful. I have nothing I'm really good at, I'm only mediocre at my hobbies. I'm trying to change at least, hopefully one day I'll catch up. I just wish I had started learning at 14 instead of at 19.

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

>>16332
Really, how does this somehow invalidate her knowledge or medical expertise?
She was on a tour speaking about issues surrounding health which kept her from being in her office.
This is the "professional misconduct" and "gross negligence" they are talking about.
You don't even read the document and you are like "hah debunked, yep, just as I thought another quack".
All this does is prove your close-mindedness and eagerness to deny anything which doesn't match your worldview.
Why don't you actually read her books, "Toxic or Tired" is a good place to start.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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