Fight was me trying to dump him for never talking to me.

I'm working up the courage to stop entirely, for now I don't have it in me but I have absolutely no intention of staying with him. I told him if he didn't talk about the communication issue with me I would dump him and he called me a twat and refused to discuss the actual problem, instead talking about how he's unhappy with his job.

I really don't think he wants to lose me, and I think he thinks I'll deal with his shit and I won't.

>> No.9186337

OMG just say "It's not working out, it's over" and if he bothers you again afterwards say "We've broken up already, don't bother me anymore"

Some guys just don't understand until you say it to them straight, and then still don't understand afterwards, so you have to say it straight to them again and again until they go away.

Don't say "I want to separate", say "We are separating". Be final. If he can't accept it, walk away and do no-contact.

I'm always thinking about dying, when I'm alone.
Nothing makes me feel better anymore. I have friends who tolerate me and go to cons with me, but I can't seem to enjoy it like I used to
I know that my misery is depressing my boyfriend. He looks so sad whenever he's around me.
My parents (I'm living with them during university ) keep telling me to stop feeling sorry for myself. They say that the stress they feel working and looking after my siblings is way more than the things I have to deal with, so what I feel is really not that valid.
So I really don't know what to do anymore.

Get some help because that's not normal. Depression doesn't need a cause, at this stage the chemicals in your brain are probably in an imbalance given that you can't enjoy anything any more. Don't you have a counsellor that you can access through uni? Might be a helpful first step

Nah, it was an enamel pin manufacturer.

It was semi my fault but I'm still very frustrated. They kept making weird adjustments to the proofs they'd send me, and I kept having to correct them. We emailed back and forth a dozen times about these proofs and random edits they did to it. I got one sample pin done and they sent a photo, I adjust two colors on it (blue and orange.) i send them a proof back of what I want them to do, they send me their proof back and I think all is fine and dandy.

Well they go to production and I notice something is off... They changed the orange and blue OK, but they had randomly switched one of the pinks that was fine in the last sample pin I did. I go and check and low and behold they randomly fucking changed it in the last proof they sent me. And because I approved it, probably wont be able to get anything out of it.
It went unnoticed to me since I was so focused on the colors we were adjusting, not some random thing they decided to do... Lesson learned I guess

This was me during the height of my depression. I hope things get better for you anon. If you havent already I definitely recommend seeking professional help. I talked to my doctor and got medications, was on them for 2 years, and I am currently trying to come off of them since I feel my mental health has gotten better and stabilized.
If at first your meds dont work out, consider trying various types with your doctor. Its like birthcontrol where not one size fits all.

Knees, ankles, wrists/hands/fingers, hips and shoulders -- sometimes it goes into my elbows as well. DESU I don't have joints that DON'T hurt most of the time. Plus some joint instability issues.

I've found that braces for extra support and just keeping the joints themselves warm helps but there's not much I can do for the hips. I'll look into compression stuff for my hands and knees though, thank you.

It's almost a good thing I dislike the second game so much I never finished it but damn, I'm so salty about it.

Oh that sucks, i'm not looking forward to mine spreading. I started getting it at 18 despite being healthy, so i don't doubt that it'll spread as i get older. Sorry you have to deal with that.

I'm not sure what stuff exists for anything other than knee/ankle, but if the compression helps at all i wonder if they do it for elsewhere. If that doesn't exist maybe tight compression-wear like you get for sports or shapewear would help, just because it adds more pressure than normal clothing does.

>> No.9187942

Unfortunately, that's pretty likely. I know that they make compression gloves for people with arthritis, my grandmother bought me a pair awhile ago but they were really uncomfortable (i think she bought me too small of a side).

I very tactfully declined lending her friend things, but said her friend could come anyways. Got a message this morning in the group chat basically saying that she isn't coming anymore because her friend has nothing to wear. We've been organising this for a month, organsised the date around her, organised a car for the numbers cause there is a road trip involved. And she is blubbering about how "I don't want my friend to feel left out".

Yeah I think I will tell her to piss off next time there is something on. I really don't mind lending things out, but people are normally more respectful FFS.

I have a real shoplifting problem. Like if given the opportunity and something catches my eye, I dive straight in. I've been doing it so much lately, and it's difficult to control.
Just today my haul totaled over $600, and while I'm happy, I also feel weird. I don't feel guilt or anything, but I can't explain it.
I work retail and I love my store, never taken anything from it. And our store has really low security imho. If I was a buyer I'd get away with so much. And just seeing some customers genuinely love the products and then buying it sincerely, even if they look like they're working a low-wage job, astounds me.

Which calorie counter are you using? I found out the one on myfitnesspal to be shit. The one on IIFYM was way more accurate for me. I used the one on MFP and recorded my food religiously. It had suggested I eat around 1100 calories and get only ~40g protein. I ended up GAINING weight, and it was mostly, if not all, fat. I stopped counting calories and macros for a few months, and the weight just came off instantly. I exercised the same amount as I did when I was counting calories.

I started counting again out of curiosity, and I was eating closer to 2000 calories. Sometimes 2500 calories or more. I just looked at the IIFYM site, and it said I should be having about 2070 calories and 73g of protein per day.

So... try increasing your calories and protein intake. ALSO, drink enough water and rest! Look it up on IIFYM if you're curious about your caloric intake. I don't know if you should be eating as much as me, but if you're exercising twice a day, you probably should be. I maintain about 100~104lbs body weight with this amount of calories. I can't remember how much I was when I was counting before, but I think it was at least 108lbs, possibly 112 or even 115lbs.

It just sound like she's inordinately scared for her safely, likely because like I said she was probably fairly isolated from blacks and had some kind of shitty upbringing where she was taught to fear them.

Have you tried talking to her about this? She might just need a push to realize the way she's thinking and feeling about it is wrong and take steps to fix it. If she refuses or reacts angrily then she's probably actually a shitty person and you should cut her off. Silently judging her for it will help no one.

Don't think this'll help because I don't understand what it means to be addicted but have you ever tried kratom? You can buy it in capsule form and I used to like percosots and shit and this to me gave me the same effect- however, I took five capsules without knowing how much mg were in each and this was also my first time taking it, and my body totally treated it like a toxin.
First I started getting that high, then a massive burning heat came over my body, I started sweating terribly, and then I was bed ridden for 20+ hours.
couldn't eat, couldn't stand up and couldn't open my eyes for very long because I was so dizzy and then at the very end an excruciating headache that hurt my head even more if it was touching anything, and I was still bed ridden so it basically sucked to the max.
What I'm getting at is maybe you need to suffer real bad (pretty sure even with as much as I took krantom in generally pretty safe) to maybe help stop so you're worried it might happen again.

OP here and yeah, even my little lesbian heart is going dokidoki over these characters (Zen mostly) though it's a struggle to stay on JaHee's route now that I know I won't live out my dreams of a lesbian relationship where our dates is going to see Zen perform in his new play.
I've never even played an otome game seriously before this. I'd only played Hatoful Boyfriend and that's literally a pigeon dating game that wasn't to be taken seriously.

But yeah, it does have the unfortunate side effect of making you realize how lonely you are when you start desperately craving that next chat/text alert because you have no IRL friends/dates. I'm lucky enough to have a few IRL friends but they're all either hours away or states away so I only see them at conventions 1-2 times a year.

I know I'm nothing, and Ive told myself for years I'll never achieve my dreams and should just kill myself, but now that I'm actually statting to care and try, to have people my age or a few years younger looking down on me for being nothing.... I've spent all day crying, my boyfriend is upset with me for being anxious and for letting people get to me to the point that he isn't talking to me, and all I can do to feel better is put on my favorite JSK.

I want to be someone and have passion, but I'm afraid it's too late, I'm too old to achieve anything, and that I should just enjoy my frills for a little longer and then throw myself off a bridge so I can stop wasting space and making my boyfriend miserable with all my crazy.

Don't give up, anon. That's some elitist bullshit on their part. Plenty of people go back to school later in life or start new careers. You're still in your 20s. You have plenty of time, you just have to start and keep going. Don't waste another day. It's going to be okay. You've apparently lived with some severe mental health issues for years and have survived; you're stronger than you give yourself credit for. Ignore shitty people who look down on you when they don't know your circumstances or who treat life like a competition or whatever. Hold on to feeling better, hold on to wanting to do more, and do it.

That is actually around the amount that I paid for my tickets to Japan, anon! I'm in Europe though, and have heard that it's pricier in the US.
However, the $800 my parents gave me was just for extra spending money. I paid for everything myself, but didn't have quite enough money to have a solid daily budget, so they gave me a small chunk of my early birthday gift for that.

Anon, fuck them, seriously.

I'm 26 and I've done absolutely nothing between graduating high school until this year. I went from caretaking my stepfather to caretaking my grandmother, I've never had a job and funded traveling/conventions through selling wigs and weeb merch online. Compared to everyone else I've been a total loser for 10 years and I've got bad anxiety that prevents me from driving but thanks to the government and me being broke I got a grant to go to community college.
It's hard at times and I haven't got any friends on campus but it makes me feel like I'm doing something with my life and means I got another two years to feel productive and good about myself.

Maybe you ought to look into going to community college? The classes are very small (my largest one has 10 people in it) and it's not like highschool cliques so everyone pretty much minds their own business and you can take online stuff and just go on campus and hide in the library at a computer all day if you want.

Seriously, I really think it'll help you.

I dumped him, she got dumped- lo and behold he tries to make me jealous by texting me when they had their first kiss one night.

>it's pretty much his m.o.

So I still talk to the bf/gf in this situation and I've explained to them I don't want to speak or hang out with this guy because I don't feel safe around him anymore and I don't want to engage him at parties either. The gf keeps trying to put me in those situations and I think they are of the mindset that because it's been a year since this happened, I need to let it go.

Aside from this, they're fine people. I get they think I'm holding a grudge BUT the reality is I don't feel okay being around this guy and they know exactly why. This is way more than holding a grudge and I'm sick of her awkwardly bringing up this shit and trying to force me back into a friendship.

I'd offer to talk to you but I'm really upset about my irl friend situation unfortunately. I think part of the reason I have trouble finding friends with gulls is because of my weird schedule. Like Sundays are very slow at my job so I'd totally be able to chat but if I started talking to you now and then you messaged me tomorrow -- I'd be totally swamped. At least until 5pm. It's likely that I'd still be busy after that and I have no way to predict.

There were a few people who I did try to speak with after the initial conversation and because of scheduling and other stuff, plus me going to spend time with my bf, I guess I just don't have time? But I always find myself in situations like today where nothing is going on and it'd be great to have someone to talk to, but then when people want to talk, I'm busy.

it just never works out and I hate it. And my irl friends are shitty on top of that and I'm a huge newb in my comm so no one wants to talk outside of meets. yay.

His logic is that one time he was in a bad situation where everyone stopped talking to him, and I guess it made him suicidal, or something extremely dramatic along those lines. I don't think anyone was actually suicidal in either situation, but they were playing it up to be manipulative. So he thinks if we all stop talking to molester guy, he'll be sad without any friends and pretty much he just feels really bad for a guy that attempted to fuck his gf because I'm sure if she hadn't woken up, that's what would've happened.

This is so fucking lame and I don't want to be part of their drama but I also can't just cut them off cause I feel like I've done that to a lot of people already, including creepy molester guy.

But this girl wants me to come over this weekend and I was able to get out of their game nights cause I have to work but then she asked me to just hang out and I kind of want to go yell at her for trying to put me in an awkward situation at her birthday where she asked me to come talk to her while she stood next to the molester guy and tried to get me to acknowledge him in conversation.

I think the problem is they just see me as holding a grudge, and yeah I am but I think I have a good reason and I guess because she's a psychologist she thinks she knows better than me.

Anon you have to decide whether being fine with your friends is more important or your own personal safety. Even if this guy doesn't do anything to you, he's done it to other women and he is a legit rapist in the making and your friends want to forgive that just to spare his feelings??? What kind of logic is that for them? It doesn't matter if it was yesterday, a month ago, a year ago, or five years ago. He's molested one person and attempted a sexual assault on another. He's not going to change and if he ends up alone with another woman in that situation he'd do it again. They shouldn't be defending him and I have a feeling that they still would when he does it again because "Well we have to forgive him otherwise he'll kill himself even if he did assault/rape someone."

They sound like shit friends and you need to cut them out if they're going to ignore how you feel unsafe and continue to force you to be around a sexual predator.

For all you know maybe the guy is a coward, and the girl posting actually made all the first moves in the relationship and takes a lot more risks in life compared to the particular guy. Maybe not, but the point is I don't fucking know and neither do you.

If you just want to complain about women do it on a board where it's on topic. I'm guessing you just came to cgl because it's mostly women and went searching for a post you could get angry at.

The original post was from some other random girl in response to the boyfriend story just saying "Men are cowards". That's a vastly more sweeping generalization than anything I've said.

And I'm just genuinely baffled how, knowing that men generally (not all the time but lets face it, almost all the time) expected to approach the woman and do basically all the work and take all the risk in starting and maintaining a relationship, that girl can say "Men are cowards". I'd be willing to bet large sums of money she's never (or barely ever) asked a person out before, or done really anything very risky to herself in anything relationship related. So where the fuck does she get off calling all men cowards the instant she believes they don't do one thing perfectly despite already doing 99.99% of all the work and risk in relationships.

The only bad things about menopause are the hot flashes and the bone deterioration. HRT puts you at risk for a ton of nasty conditions like heart disease and severe blood clots.

It is not a generalization to say men do the majority of asking out, paying for dates and other such things in relationships and that the majority of women expect men to do those things and usually refuse to do them themselves. If you're going to honestly claim it's 50/50 you're a bold faced liar who will say anything for the sake of their own biased arguments.

Women don't have to make the first move, and they don't have to provide any income. Women and men are different, there's no use complaining about differences like "why don't women have to do THIS?"

They don't have to do _that_ because a girl's sexuality is valuable in itself, she can trade it for a man who will provide for her and children.

Women have these privileges, but goddamn I wish they would just realize it and strive to be a good wife, not a completely non-feminine bitch "feminist" who don't need no man.

I met great people from some 4chan guild, most of them guys obviously and they've all been great people to talk with, both in groups and some personal chitchat too. My only rule is not to get too close to anyone really.

See, that's different than saying women as a group do things to men and men as a group do things to women.

>I just don't get how women can refuse to ever make the first move any time in their life, demanding that men always approach them first, take them on a date, pay for everything, do basically everything at every stage of the relationship, taking all the risk and responsibility and SOMEHOW women think they can call all men "cowards".

Which is what you did in your first post.

Just spent hours at my friend's house helping her work on a wig. But we have to redo it all over again because it's too heavy and uncomfortable.
