I totally missed that he's her stepdad. Over-protective father would have been bad enough, but the stepdad acting like that is giving me major creep vibes.

Yeah, creepy describes him well. Regardless, we both need to move out because living at home is a huge L.

I hate my boss, she's just the most scary and confusing person I've ever worked with. Last week a coworker was obviously slacking off and probably assumed that I was going to tattle when I said that the way she times her workload obviously leaves me with finishing it up and doing more work which is a bad thing to do when we're risking falling behind our deadlines. I never tattle on lazies, I just tell them straight up and that has worked out well until now as that coworker is trying to spin it to my boss that I'm complaining about having to do the work. This has meant a lot of embarrassing conversations where I had to bluntly mention that I do more work and have exceeded my coworkers knowledge of the job in a fraction of the time (she is a SLOW learner).

On one hand, I have everyone outside my department from directors to techs saying I'm the replacement they always wanted for my lazy coworker. And on the other l, have my supervisor screaming at me to go work somewhere else if I don't like it here. It's a whole week of me :mindblown

So on one of my trips to the global mart i though, hmmm, might i not get myself a Cadbury's Oat Crunch bar? Haven't had one in months


Show up, they aren't there anymore. I've found out from the register that these Hershey cunts have sued importers from bringing in the superior british varieties


not only do they create horrible ass chocolate in big quantities, they're actually blocking my access to chocolate i like

Always suspected my dad has Asperger's making him unfit for parenthood. Found out that all my mom's friends refer to him as Asperger King

Remember a while back I posted about how I was put in charge of a doomed project that despite being underwater and sideways it has also managed to somehow set itself on fire? After weeks to being called a "bad news bear" (I wish I was joking) executive leadership is like  :ohhh "It...it looks like this is underwater and sideways, and might possibly be on fire."

It's funnier if I post it here though.

And in certain respects it is a struggle. Before I could make myself utterly morose--a useful at will skill for someone easily bored--by thinking through a negative feedback loop. Now I think through the loop and nothing happens so I'm bored and reminded of shitty things.

What are you dealing with exactly? MDD?

After a year of seeing this therapist we both agreed I'm bipolar :gloomy
:scust @ these medications with their awful side effects.

I have (had?) a treatment-resistant major depressive episode. I'm taking 5 different pills every day and shooting up an additional treatment once a week. (Respect to the intravenous drug users across the world.)

Since this is the second episode I've suffered as an adult (I had one in university), it's likely that I have MDD, but I haven't been formally diagnosed as such.

Bipolar is rough, one of my parents has it. If you're willing to be a Soviet Space Dog you can find treatment with minimal side effects. :)

You ever try a stimulant for treatment resistant depression?

That has helped me the most, but with that there's eventual tolerance and the comedown isn't great. I think it's a good adjunct medication and it offsets some of the fatigue from taking other meds.

It does suck. Been hospitalized 3 times at least in the past 4 years.

Not feeling hopeless though, I've been on different med combinations in the past that have helped a lot.

I stim a lot because of my line of work. (Too much in all likelihood.) My doctor actually asked me to try and just have one serving a day if possible and monitor my sugar intake.

If I was energy sapped from a depressive cycle on the weekend or something I found stimulants to be helpful.

Glad you're keeping your head up.

Until there's a way to diagnose patients without the patient's cooperation / input it will never be a very well understood field of medicine.

Just shattered my phone screen for the first time ever. All the drops that my phone took on concrete/asphalt like a pro and a fall from my bed to my wood flooring shatters the screen. :stahp

Now I'm gonna have to buy a new phone on contract and be stuck with Verizon for another 2 years. I don't even care for any of the phones available right now, so I might as well take the L and get the Galaxy S6. At least I'd finally have a smartphone with a good camera. Only other options I'd consider are the 2nd gen Moto X and the LG G4.

I had a 3Gs years ago that I absolutely beat the fuck out of. Distinct memory walking home drunk in NC and drop my phone at a major intersection in front of a cop at 2 am. It slid the whole way across the road and hit the sidewalk too. Totally fine save some scratches on the back.

Like a year later I'm drinking on new years and it drops off a kitchen counter and the screen completely shatters. Pieces actually came out.

Got drunk and accidentally made a move on an ex-gf last night. :sabu I only tried it because she was showing obv buttlust towards me all night imo and I eventually gave in after drinking enough. Didn't pan out though, my self-sabotage powers saved me from going through with it.

Okay, I'm on my morning Mio Energy buzz so I'll clarify. Due to circumstance the most recent ex-gf and I have resumed communications for the first time since we broke up almost a year ago. (edit - I broke up with her / left her for another woman. Oops.  :() There's been a slight re-kindling, which has been weirding me out since I thought we had a clean break. It's like on one hand I don't have any desire at all for us to get back together, but on the other hand I'm also horribly lonely. :larry  So anyways, she shows up last night while I'm having a few drinks with an associate and starts getting all cuddly with the dude right in front of me. Apparently they've met previously and now have some sort of thing together. He's a nice enough guy...but tbh I consider him to be my inferior so it kinda grossed me out to see her into him like that. I'm a narcissistic asshole  so my first assumption is that she's doing this to make me jealous and provoke me into making a move. But I don't play that game.  :ufup I blew it off and went home feeling like a winner.

But looking back now, I can see that instead of showing indifference like I thought, I was actually a manipulative fuck the whole time. Knowing the dude is skilled at creeping out girls, I very persuasively encouraged him to 100% follow his instincts with her. :sabu I also kept offering him drinks in a move to erode his judgement. And then when I had a moment alone with her, I teased her about it, which made her blush and deny having any romantic feelings toward him. I'm sure whatever they have will be short lived anyways, but I did my best job of ensuring it's quick demise just to satisfy my ego.  :aah

But then I fuck it all up by trying to get cozy with her after he leaves.  I can never just walk away. :shaq2

Woke up the other day with what looks like the afterimage of a light burned into my right eye.  Went to a doctor and was told it's not a detached retina or anything series, but instead is just a big grey eye floater.  They can't do anything about it so I just have to deal with it.   :'(  Depends on what I'm looking at for how noticeable it is.  Fortunately from my experience with eye floaters and generally horrible eyesight, my brain will learn to ignore it with time.
