Hey, good news! That obese-chan I mentioned in the last thread (the one who had a <3 attack at 28) went into rehab for food addiction.

>> No.9103500

Recently I've started to enjoy hanging out with my cosplay partner & best friend of 6 years less and less. She's just become so negative and jaded, and all she seems to do when we're together is complain? Any advice I ever give is ignored, and she never does anything to solve her family problems, such as communicating her feelings to them. Plus, she gets so pissed off over little things- she once told me she hated her roommate because she put the toilet paper on the holder the wrong way and would leave her dishes in the sink for short period of time. I mean, she's just becoming somewhat intolerable at times and I'm finding myself increasingly annoyed with her negativity in my life.

On the other hand, she's the only person who ever wants to cosplay from the same series with me as we share a lot of the same fandoms. I honestly can't wait until I find a significant other who will do cute couple cosplays with me, I need a change of pace.

>> No.9103531

>>9103500
If you need a change of pace then just roll with it. Other Cosplay partners will come along eventually. You should probably just tell her she's being annoying and see what comes of it. If she drops you, wasn't worth it, if she apologizes there's hope. Complaining is one thing, everyone needs to vent a bit, but if it's constant it might eventually rub off on to you.

Workouts won't do nearly as much for you as dieting will. Working out is rather used to build muscle or improve organs. Once you've gotten used to a good diet (read the /fit/ sticky if you need help) you can start doing "beginner workouts" (also on the /fit/ sticky) if you so choose. The only reason people get fat is because they take in more energy than they can burn. Eating less calories=losing weight. Medical issues shouldn't impair you that much, all you have to do is take medical precautions if you are going to try to powerlift or something.

My cat's medical bills keep getting higher. The poor guy is a year old and keeps getting kidney/urinary tract infections. He's on his third in the last two months. The vet is trying different approaches because this shouldn't keep happening (he is otherwise healthy, no diseases or anything).

Anyway, I'm worried about him and it looks like I'll have to sell off a bunch of my lolita main pieces to cover all of the bills (special foods, medicines, tests). I love lolita but I love my cat more.

Honestly, if you're nearing 30 and don't have a job, reliable transportation, or a savings you're fucked. Even with 2/3 you're never going to be a responsible adult at this point. You probably don't even realize the way you're operating is bad and you've only sabotaged your adult life up until this point.
I feel like I'm moving way ahead of some of my friends at this point and I didn't think it would be a huge issue but a couple of them just let me down really hard with how irresponsible they are recently.
I like these friends and we share a lot of the same interests and hobbies but I can't rely on them worth shit. Every time we're offline it's like:
>Let's get food! Ok now that we're here I can't order anything because I don't have money so I'm going to stand here and make you feel bad until you buy me something.
or
>Let's hang out! OK last minute I don't have my car available to me so instead can you come to me?
or
>Let's do this cosplay together! OK now that you've bought everything for your half of duo, I actually didn't buy anything for my half and the con is in 3 weeks so I don't think there's a point in me cosplaying at all anymore. You can't still wear your part if you want.
I always feel like I'm the mom in the group and like they hang out with me expecting me to take care of them. Like they plan a trip but I need to figure out directions, figure out how much money they need, eventually bail them out when they fuck something up (no transportation, no money, they forgot a phone charger so I have to let them waste my whole emergency battery, basically pack their bags for them because they can't get out of the fucking hotel-which is under my name-at checkout on their own). It's really stressful and I just can't deal with it anymore. It's not reasonable to expect this from your friends.

I have worked so hard to build up a cohesive wardrobe so I could go to meets and I've only gone to one so far. I have a horrible time trying to relate to people and planned on going to a meet today but cancelled because I was having so much anxiety about going that I started having nightmares where I was being asked to leave when I showed up and things like that.

There is a huge comm where I live and everyone seems really nice but I'm almost positive I don't have anything in common with these people besides lolita. And not only that but they all seem pretty normie outside of their one weird hobby?

I don't play Pokemon, I don't watch anime or any popular tv shows... I really don't have anything to talk about and I just feel like an outsider in every single situation I put myself into, even lolita.

I also go to therapy but it hasn't seemed to do much as I have a hard time controlling my breathing during panic attacks and it takes a long time for me to calm down from one still even though I've done 2 years of therapy now. Even with breathing exercises, I am still upset for the rest of the day and can't function like a normal human being.

And I never feel like a person anymore. I would say I'm dead inside if I wasn't crying my eyes out all the time.

Hey, uh, if your 2 years of therapy haven't helped to improve anything, try a different therapist. And make sure they practice CBT, since it's statistically the "best" option for anxiety. Everyone is different and every therapist is different. Even if your therapist isn't bad, per se, most people need to do some shopping around before they find a therapist who is really great for them.

That being said, maybe you should try meds? If your therapist is supportive of the idea, of course. I have a lot of friends that say they've really helped. I'm not a medical professional, so take all this advice with a grain of salt. Whatever you choose to do, I hope it helps you improve your anxiety!

I feel exposing the most minor interest in something weeby has my normie friends breathing down my neck on social media. If I go to cons or buy anime merchandise then that's my business. I'm not shoving it down anyone's throat by posting that stuff on my Instagram or snapchat, but I still get pm's like "cringe LOL"... Meanwhile being a nerd is cool if you're into the PokemonGo fad.

I have shitty friends, but what else is new.

I've gone through a few therapists already, I go through a school cause it's cheap.
I don't think I can do meds.

I think I mostly have anxiety because of my upbringing which I am finally getting into with my current therapist. The one I had before that helped me get over my self harm, which is why I really don't want to go on meds cause I bet I'd lose all control then. I'm already pretty out of control.

>> No.9105575

>>9105560
i don't know where you're getting this idea that meds will somehow make you lose control but it's most likely very incorrect. it's true that most meds for mental health shit have a potential to increase suicidal thoughts/behaviors, but it's a very slim chance, and if it does it's generally easy to catch it and fix the problem before it goes south, as long as you're keeping a careful eye on things. i'll say it did happen to me once and it was scary as hell, but now that i've found meds that actually work for me my life has improved exponentially. everything's worth a try, and if it doesn't work, you can always stop taking them. besides, most anti-anxiety meds are prns so you only take them if you feel like you need it, unlike most meds that are every day. i'm just saying you shouldn't be so quick to write it off

to keep things on topic, my own feels:
>recently had a bunch of large necessary expenses out of the blue
>working very few hours right now so not making a lot of income
>now completely broke and struggling with it bc i just want to make cosplays and buy video games but i have no money rip

Went to a friends birthday party, fancy dress theme was musicals.
No time or money so I decided to pull a costume together out of my wardrobe for Mary Poppins.
I go for black full skirt I wear with Goth looks, high neck blouse I thrifted for classic lolita, black jacket from my workwear, plus brooch at the neck, straw boater (also brought for lolita), one of my parasols and a giant ugly bag I got given at a boot sale for carrying books home in that was on the 'to donate' pile. Put my hair up by pining braids to the nape of my neck.
Overall = vaguely Mary Poppins but nothing screen accurate. I was just happy people recognized who I was meant to be!

Lovely party but I had to leave early, saying my goodbyes 'oh don't go, you are nominated for one of the costume prizes- most stage ready!'

Two feels
1. I don't even cosplay but visiting this board makes me feel guilty about an inaccurate costume getting praised, especially by people who've seen the musical in question heaps of times.
2. My normal clothes have got to the point of being passably Edwardian with so little effort that I'm kind of proud.

The more I play this game the quicker I am losing interest in it because it's so unfair. People who live in cities seem to get more spawns and Pokestops up the wazoo, and if you live in a more rural area, you're fucked. It's no fun when what takes you two weeks of walking about 7 miles a day to achieve, is done within 3 days by simply going to the Natural History Muesem or something. I wish they'd give city placers a handicap, like Pokestop cool downs are 20 minutes or something.

I knew this feel too, it was awesome.

Then crunch time comes upon us, and I realize he's done jack shit for 3 months except buy some materials. I offer to "help" which means now I am putting together a rushed cosplay in like 2 weeks, on top of finishing my own. He can't sew, he can't cut, he can't glue, he can't do ANYTHING without me sitting down and taking the time to show him. And then when I leave it in his hands, it takes him forever and it's still all fucking janky. He has zero artistic or creative-thinking / problem-solving ability but HUGE overreaching plans and ideas. So nothing ever comes to fruition unless I do it for him.

Most good therapists/psychiatrists will recommend the combination of therapy and drugs, mostly for the reason that the majority of research shows that the combination of the two gives the most effective results. Like, there's years of research showing they work for a good amount of people.

Mental health is still a relatively young field, though, and its so diverse from person to person and culture to culture that there isn't really a catch-all cure for any mental disorder. The best we have is, "Well, multiple clinical studies have shown this works for a small majority of people, so....". You have to keep trying until you find what fits you.

If meds fit you and make you functional so you can work towards recovery, why wouldn't you take them?

Thank you. She was just a really sweet, warm person. I don't have any bad memories of her. We used to take naps together between classes. She was the sort of person that would cuddle you exactly when you needed it. When some really rough things happened to me, she was the one that was there for me.

Her death was just so sudden. I had known she was upset, but we had drifted apart because she had moved. I had no idea how devastated she really was until she was gone. I wish I had made more of an effort with her after she moved away. Maybe I could've been the one who had comforted her, if only she had reached out for help.

I used to love playing Love Live SIF but after the huge JP patch I feel like the game is just too bloated and even with the game chucking Love Gems at me I suddenly feel less excited and more overwhelmed by the huge amount of cards, new songs and skill diversity. I don't hate the Aquors either they're fine.

tldr; LLSIF used to be really fun for me and now meh.

Oh, anon. Do your best to hold on to those memories and celebrate the time you were fortunate enough to spend together. It will give you something to smile about once the emptiness and pain have (mostly) passed. With how many people there are in the world, it's amazing when you cross paths with someone who becomes so special to you. She sounds like she was an absolute joy to be with.

You did your best given the information you had. Sometimes there aren't any real warning signs, sometimes you can't do anything. Depression and other mental disorders are just as deadly and senseless as other diseases.

Me three. I want to try to break the cycle but I'm not sure where to start...

>> No.9106920

Recently I noticed the toxicity of a old friend, who long story short was giving me some negativity in my life (like shit talking me and those I know behind our backs for one). But we gradually went our separate ways since they were pursuing different things cosplay and life wise, so I took this as a chance to just distance myself and just not be part of that anymore. When we do come across each other it's a simple hi and some small talk, and neither of us put more effort into furthering it which was fine with me.

Well recently we met again and I was talking to someone when they came over to our group. I was caught up in the conversation so I just waved hi and smiled before resuming my talk and said bye when they left. They were chatting with others in the group anyways.

A little after my friend told me they threw a public fit that I don't pay them any attention and how things changed since we last were together (which was probably 2 years ago mind you) and basically going on how I treated them like crap.

They've caused me more harm then I have them. I never mentioned anything about them, I just silently went my way while they they went theirs. And now here they are complaining that I'M the one being the terrible person. I shouldn't be upset over this but I am, and mostly mad that I'm feeling this way since this is exactly what I've been avoiding.

Count calories. Eat less. That's all. You have no excuses. I've just lost 30lbs in 13 weeks after years of being an overweight piece of shit complaining about "muh can't lose weight, muh genetics". Calories in, calories out is the only secret. Also don't think of it as dieting but rather as a lifestyle change. And stop soda, even diet soda, that shit makes you crave sugar. And yes, count calories for drinks too, but try to avoid anything else than water, sugarless tea or sugarless coffee (especially alcohol).

Don't mind me asking but what was your SW and how much calories you were eating?

>> No.9107119

My starting weight was 150lbs and I am 5'2.4" so i had an bmi of 27.
I used one of those TDEE calculators (TDEE= amount of calories needed daily to maintain your weight)
(I used this one if you are interested : http://www.calculator.net/calorie-calculator.html?) And it gave me 1700 kcal/day. So as /fit/ advices to cut/add 500 kcal to your tdee to lose/gain weight I ate around 1200kcal/day for a few weeks in the beginning, and after one month or so I calculated again my TDEE and then ate 1100kcal/day, etc. When we count calories we tend to understimate them though so try to add the calories of the butter/oil you use when cooking or if you're not sure what amount could be what you're eating, either try to weight your food as much as possible or to exagerate the amount. Drink a lot of water whenever possible, especially before meals, so you'll feel filled way more easily and won't eat as much. Try to not serve yourself more than once unless the portion you had was small and that's a low-calories dish, try to not drink your calories (only drink water, tea, etc whenever possible), to not snack (or snack on a banana or other fruits), and to eat really slowly. I know that's a lot but just counting calories, even with snacks and all, should already do wonders. You can do cardio whenever you're motivated to do it as it'll make you burn a bit of calories, but try to stick to 500 under your tdee and to not reward yourself with food after exercise. (try to calculate your tdee as if you're completely unactive)

If it's very recent, it could be lasting stress from your exams. Depending how old you are, it might be hormonal as well.

Depression isn't strictly crying a lot, that's more so stress getting to you and overwhelming you. It's a very deep set feeling of being exhausted and miserable- but if you're just constantly crying, it might be worth seeing a therapist. You might just need to vent and get all the stress out do your system- people usually don't realise that's what they need until they're in a situation where they can open up. A good therapist will create that sort of environment for you!

>>9107340
it can be but I'd first look at your stress situation and then your hormonal situation, just as >>9107348 said.
depression for a lot of people is more of a black hole, a lack of emotion, energy and/or will to live, usually, but those feelings along with self image issues and self doubt (which also come in the package quite often) can definitely cause a lot of crying. you could definitely consider seeing a therapist (psychologist), it can't hurt. school ones are often a decent place to start but I don't know how that'd work in the summer (I've only been to private specialists)

"I'm worried bitch doesn't like me.." is a thing you can say. She's already shown them that she's untrustworthy by spreading shit about you, so you just need to reinforce your trustworthiness. Also general opening up to people, talking about being worried about giving a bad impression, and surrendering at the first sign of conflict. Don't be defensive, be reflective.

Multiple feels, not necessarily all related:

I paid off all my student loans last week! So theoretically I have more money to spend, right? Yet somehow I have less in my bank account and more on my credit card than I budgeted for (I have a lot of free time at work), and I can't tell where it went? I need to sit down and go through everything line by line, because this is baffling. Doesn't help that earlier this month I had fraudulent charges on my card and had to get a new one issued.

I've had my office job for 4 months now, and I've gained like 10 pounds already from sitting in a cube all day and not running up and down 2 flights of stairs all the time like I was doing in my retail job before this. I have cons in October, February, and March, and I don't know if I can lose all my extra weight (and more, since I started out a little overweight) before it all begins.

I'm making part of a cosplay for a friend, and I told her I wouldn't charge for more than just materials (because she's a friend and I'm still mediocre), but I've been keeping track of how many hours I've been putting in... Unfortunately I feel like it's too late to change my mind about being paid for this. Oh well.

Baby steps. I have light asthma with low blood pressure too (easily tired with lack of energy) but this is what I did:
1st week - Walk 1hr daily, 3 more times a week
2nd week - Cycle for 1hr 3 times a week
3rd week - Alternate days for walking and cycling every other day, e.g. Mon walk, Tues cycle, Wed rest, Thurs cycle, Fri walk, Sat rest, Sun cycle
4th week: Do walk in morning and cycle at night, a couple of days a week . Introduce jogging into your walks. Join a sports club (I chose badminton) to mix it up.

Give it a go. Your stamina will improve but be careful your body will grave carbs after each exercise so plan what to eat.

I crossed a completely invisible line at my last meet, apparently.

We were all complaining about sjws, and I feel like I said something bad mid-discussion (it didn't end with me having the last word) because a male member said, after, 'oh yeah x has been trying to get me to calm down for a while'.

And while I didn't instigate the conversation, I'm worried that I escalated it and now my comm hates me.

I also walked away from a girl who was being abrasive, though I think that's her personality, but I don't know how to apologise because, while she apologised to me for what she had said, I didn't want to reply in case I bit my tongue, so I sort of said 'it's okay' and nodded, continuing walking toward the cafe. I'll apologise next meet. I just feel like a fucking potato.

Time to booby-trap the apartment, Home Alone style. Paint cans on rope, electrified doorknob, spider buckets. Put warning signs everywhere.

Best case scenario, they think you're batshit insane and don't rob you.

When I was a kid, someone broke into my house. I was fascinated with "rogue" pursuits because my family played D&D. Aside from teaching myself to pick locks, I figured out some simple traps and put warnings up. So when he came into my room, there was a box full of silver dollars that was taped up with "poison" written on the front. I had mixed a bunch of chemicals, being a fool child, and put them in the box before quickly sealing it. Luckily it didn't do anything but give me a headache.

It was the only thing the robber didn't fuck with. In fact, if he had moved it at all, he put it back carefully. It was right where I left it, in my jewelry box. Everything else was tossed haphazardly around my room, he even moved my mattress.

I'm suspicious that he got hit by my desk trap (a pencil was rigged to fly out and hit you in the face) but was never able to confirm. It wouldn't have done much but annoy and surprise him. I hope it hit him, though. He was an asshole. Poured pepto bismol in my dad's fishtank before he left, because I guess the robber was just 100% shit.

"That's sad thats happening but can't fault them when they are angry"

It's really something that you have to sit back and think what to say. I cant say they are a bunch of dumb cunts because they don't believe in homosexuality but I can say that they were brought up by the Bible and I wasn't so that changed my viewpoints

I hope you cat recovers soon anon! I pray you you and your kitty!!

This is what I'm afraid of with my two dogs. I recently took them from my bf's aunt's hands (I don't mean literally lol I asked if I can adopt them) since she is piss poor and already has 2 other dogs plus a baby, and she is a shitty owner/mother. Basically how she got around to having 4 fucking dogs was not fucking fixing her two little dogs in the first place; she was dating this guy who had a dog and that dog fucked her female dog, and then popped two puppies (I honestly think there was a bit more puppies in the litter but she didn't give us full detail) and she didn't give them their shots or anything. I was really pissed to hear that. Her first 2 dogs don't even have shots and her female recently just had a really bad case of worms to where she looked like a bloated beach ball. We are going to get the 2 dogs updated on shots and get the fixed as soon as we can and get them worm treatment just in case. I'm just afraid they might have other internal problems. They seem really happy on the outside but I just can't help but worry what's going on with them.

I'm not furious with having to pay for the shots or fixing them, but the fact that she was irresponsible to keep those dogs as an accessory when she can't fucking afford it. She's a literal bigot and I can't stand observing how she takes care of her dogs and even her baby. She recently moved in with my bf's mom because she got evicted from her apartment, but of course she has enough money to go clubbing and drink every weekend. She makes me furious and I just feel so bad for those dogs. Sorry for rant
Also pic related, it's one of the two dogs I adopted from her. He is such a sweetheart <3

Usually when I tried to befriend girls they would forget about me or tell me how "weird" I was because I didnt like to drink or go to parties and because I was too quiet. So eventually I would just get left out of everything.

It's gotten to the point of straight up high school mean girl nonsense at both my job and sports club. I do get along with many of my coworkers, but they're all 35+ and have kids. I'm 24.

I'm not yet very active in my local lolita comm but I'm really hoping there will be some girls my age who I can get along with. Even if the comm turns out to be full of drama they can't be as bad as my coworkers.

No? Maybe you should look into drinking more water, changing some eating habits and encouraging better behaviors.
Anon, you still want to cosplay, you're just letting your body image get in the way of your happiness.

lol at all you catty bitches telling a girl to dump her boyfriend she has feelings for just because he made a single comment about her hobby. It's one fucking comment, not a manipulative web of treachery and abuse.

When my girlfriend tells me I'm a fucking idiot for my hobbies I just laugh and tell her that maybe she's right. What I don't do is misconstrue it as anything other than just natural conversation.

I know your vet has probably already told you this since they're a vet, but the top cause of kidney problems for cats is not drinking enough water. Wet food is a start, but you can also get your cat a circulating fountain (like $30 on amazon) to get it to drink more water. Cats are generally reluctant to drink water that is stagnant and/or too close to their food.

I suffered from the same thing (and still do from time to time), anon.

Do you wear a wrist brace at night while sleeping? It's important to keep the wrist straight and relaxed. Try to get used to doing more with your non-dominant hand; slowly train it.

I go to a chiropractor. Medicaid covers it for 18 visits. My chiropractor is REALLY good - it's important to find one who will work with you on your INDIVIDUAL needs, and not one that blankets everything. He gave me helpful suggestions about massaging and loosening up the muscles in my forearm. My sister is an Occupational Therapist and gave me a deep-tissue massage, and that helped right away.

To strengthen those muscles after they've healed, I use two large rubber bands tied together. I fit each band over my knuckles with my palms facing towards each other, then slowly bend each wrist backward, pulling the two bands. Slowly, I spread my fingers wide, then relax them and slowly bring my wrists to neutral positions again. This will build strength in the tendons and muscles which control our grip, the weakening and overuse of certain muscles therein often leads to carpal tunnel. Hope this helps!

TFW I work at a coffee shop and often the only food I can afford or have time to get during breaks is stuff from our shop, which is mostly carbs, cheese, and pastries. I know I should pack myself a better lunch the night before so I can just grab it out of the fridge when I leave in the morning. I guess this was a wake up call.
