Sorry, that shit is rough.

Have you tried something like buspirone?
Title: Re: Super Struggle Thread II: Turbo
Post by: Vizzys on May 11, 2015, 04:18:03 AM
never heard of buspirone but ill talk to my doctor soon
basically it happened after a good mile or 2 of walking, blurry vision, intense feeling in my head
thought it was a clot tbh, but EKG checks out so just anxiety based paranoia
ive been dealing with anxiety for like 7ish years now and thankfully this year I now have health insurance

My knee has started to hurt after just a short amount of crouching / biking / walking / existing. It's getting kind of bad and I've never dealt with anything like this before. This shit runs in the family and it could get much worse...I don't think I can handle having my summer ruined because I'm now a cripple. Things are bad enough already.  :(

Welcome to my life dude. Had knee/joint pain for the last 5 years and no doctor could do anything about it nor had an idea why I have full blown arthritis in my knees. Now other joints start to show similar symptoms.  ::)

On a more positive note, seems like my eyes are reacting good to the eyedrops I got prescribed and I seem to have a good puffer before my eyesight will actually detoriate because of my Glaucom.

Got a struggle that's been brewing ever since I made the brilliant decision to move out to the lame ass suburbs with my baby momma into a complex with over twenty buildings.

Anyway, this ongoing struggle all started Friday morning. I killed a large ass roach in my baby's room and then about two hours later I get a knock at my door. It's a pest control dude and he claims he's just there for "preventative" measures even though our hallway is a sporadic gallery of roaches and ants. Anyway he comes in and asks me if I've seen anything I guess thinking I'd be too embarassed to admit, but I'm yeah I just killed a big ass roach earlier today. "And he's really? Are you sure? No way? It had to have been a waterbug!..." And I'm like it was roach man, don't give that bull, like there's a big difference between the two anyway. Then once he realizes I ain't going for it, he's like oh they're probably just oriental roaches. Implying that if they were nicca or spic roaches I'd have a bigger problem. Motherfucker. He walks around and sprays in exactly one place and leaves.


Later that day I try to take a shower only to realize that there's no hot water, and that our AC unit, which has been broken for a week still hasn't been fixed. So I walk my ass up to the leasing office with my baby on my hip and a Negro League shirt and sweats on for the black power aesthetic. It's still before noon and I'm trying to give off the you better handle this shit now disgruntled look and they mindfuck me on some laissez faire shit. The lady's basically like yeah the hot water is going to be off for a week, didn't realize it was a big deal, what are you a little bitch? Oh and a ticket is out to have your AC unit fixed, we'll get to it whenever. Listen, it's whatever, you signed the lease slave boy. And I'm like yes master, touche.

Fast forward three days, and I'm still taking my dirty unwashed ass to work and going home to half a hot ass apartment with Asian cockroaches.

I made an amateur interior design mistake.  I got a bunch of my various diplomas and stuff finally framed so I could put them up at work.  While picking out framing I used my artistic sense and got mattes and frames that match the color and styles of the diplomas so that they look nice individually.

Uh, I totally didn't realize that while the framed diplomas look good on their own, having a bunch of completely different style frames that don't match at all on a wall does not work.  Fuck.  Didn't realize that when you have an office and a bunch of things in frames that you want all of the actual frames to match for a consistent look across the wall.  Not sure what I'm gonna do, maybe just put like one up and hide the rest lol.

I have no idea. Clearly long enough for them to just pull the plug. I'm having trouble making the mortgage as it is with him not paying me his portion of it, that's why we're selling (which will be a big profit when it happens, but doesn't help me any now) I'm so fucked. I'm at work but my wife is telling me that my step son is at home freaking out, thinking we can't even afford basic necessities because of this guy. Once this house sells my family is dead to me.

All I really know is the power company showed up, said they needed at least a grand to keep the lights on and my wife didn't have it so now we're dark.

Last week my work announced a surprise reorganization.  My boss who has been AWOL for weeks was moved to another department.  His job no longer exists so I can't reapply for it.  I report to a new VP who has no idea about what he is overseeing.  As part of the reorg, my limit in terms of what I can approve has been slashed to almost $0 (as is all other managers, not just me).  So the VP is going to be swamped with approvals, which means I can expect to wait a lot longer for things to get done.  The reason for the reorg is that we need to strategically reposition ourselves because we may have decreased revenues in the future.  Keep in mind, we booked record profits last year and every year since the mid 90s.  I've never worked for a company that has pled poverty as much as mine.

On another note, I get almost daily recruiter messages on LinkedIn.  I graduate with my MBA in two months.  I think I can hold off until then because all signs are pointing for me to get the fuck out.

No, no-one gets jobs from LI, it’s just a way to keep in touch with your exiting network, and for recruiters to extend their reach.

Is it mental anxiety like racing thoughts or do you get more of the physical symptoms like sweating, heart racing, palpitations, etc.?

My point being maybe try a beta blocker like propranolol to knock out all the physical symptoms.

It stops your heart from racing so you can't get anxious (physically). No sweating, shaking, rapid breathing, or any other flight or fight responses. Musicians use it for performance anxiety.

Pair it with something like buspar (if it works) or low dose klonopin (less addictive and longer acting, more preventative then some reactionary 'oh shit panic attack, better pop a xanax or ativan').

Yeah, apparently he fell behind on it like a year ago, and had just been paying enough to keep them from shutting us off. Despite getting a shut off notice that he hid from us that said you must pay in person or on the phone or risk shut off, he paid online and it didn't update in their system in time. So once it got turned off, the rule becomes you need to pay at least half the balance (which he had been building over time) to get it on again. Our household was not a comfortable place last night with the tension in the air.

Spent an hour and a half on the phone with the electric company cause they want to change me 365$ for one months electricity.  In the last four months I have talked to them four times.  This time.  Got frustrated asked for a manager.  'we don't let customers talk to the managers'.  Call gets dropped I call again.  Spend 45 mins talking to this one lady who finally says 'you'll have to talk to the manager but he's gone home for the day, call again tomorrow.'  I'm also pretty sure the issue is they are trying to change me a 300$ hook up fee which they've told me to ignore the last two times I called.   

And this is the moment I and came to understand the urge to murder and became a passionate supporter of eugenics.

Thanks, guys.   :)  I was relieved to hear he went in his sleep.  We knew this was coming and he managed to hang in there for several years after doctors said he only had months left to live when he was hospitalized for something some years ago. 

Am pretty concerned about my mother's emotional state right now.  My parents, brother, and sister-in-law are all in Paris right now and I know that my parents at least are cutting the trip short and coming back Wednesday.  The funeral is on Thursday.  It's probably going to hit her hard since she was the one taking the most care of him, even after he was moved into an assisted living facility.

I always felt like he was ready to pass on, especially during the last few years.  He was never the same after my grandmother passed away 10 years ago.  I'm not the religious type, but if there is an afterlife, I hope he's been reunited with her and they are happy again.

I washed all my dress socks last night. Since I didn't feel like sorting them, I tied the pairs together. Threw them in the dryer after that and went to bed. Needless to say I woke up and realized all the socks are still wet, whereas the clothes I also put in the dryer are dry. So I'm at work wearing wet socks.

One of my friend's friends has gone missing.
She's a young latina in her 20s and there's no trace of her. No credit card activities, no cell records, no sightings, nothing.
She's been gone over a month, but everyday I keep seeing my friend's facebook page with more posts about vigils and searches and all that.
For the first couple of days I was hoping they'd find her. But now it sorta feels like they're just looking for a body.  :-\

3) The electric company tried to charge me 300$ for one months electricity.  I have spent like 4-5 hours on the phone with them trying to fix this along with other problems they have caused.  A supervisor was suppose to email me but never did.  This last bill looks like they fixed the disputed charge but I have no idea what was the problem because they stealth fixed it.  So I have no idea if I will have to harass them again next month when they fuck up again.  Their call center is full of incompetent people.
4) I tried to book a councilor.  My healthcard is out of date and its going to be a bitch to solve because I moved out of province.  They can't even get me in for an assessment for 2 fucking weeks.

Ah OK. In tax accounting you have to reconcile book and return differences (for entities above a certain size) on the tax return so I'm sort of desensitized to the parallel nature of it. Accrual, non-tax basis books (so anything relevant) are the deep end.

I have MACRS and ACRS puns in my repertoire.

My dog has been reportedly limping a bit when going for long walks.  I have never seen this since said long walks are always done by my wife or my mother.  If I walked the dog 30 minutes or so, she's fine.  The dog runs and jumps all over the place daily.  I suggested that maybe she was hurting herself because she sometimes slips on the hardwood floors in our place when trying to jump up on the couch or the bed. 

So we bought some rugs last weekend.  Stuck one halfway under the bed and put the other in front of the couch.  She has more traction now although I'm told she's still limping on walks.  I have no idea what the fuck they are talking about.  My mother, worried, makes an appointment for x-rays at the vet.

So I say "has anyone tried walking the dog without the harness you guys always force her to wear?  Have you ever thought about why the dog hates it so much and runs away when you take it out?"

My wife goes and walks the dog for over an hour.  No problems.  Everyone is like :ohhh.  I really want to know why the vet didn't think to suggest this.  :-\  The dog went in about a month ago and was prescribed meds that were clearly not needed.

Been a few months since I moved out. Eat well, sleep well, lost weight, etc.

Sounds good. But I was expecting more though. I was hoping to get my shit together, but despite the aforementioned positives that's not going too well.

I dunno what you call it, but the mental health help institutions and stuff in this country have gone to shit thanks to the budget cuts. And before it wasn't that great either.

What really blows my mind is that in the vast majority of other countries in the world, it's far worse. If I wasn't born in western world I would have probably offed myself a long time ago. Scary thought, mayne.

All things considered it's not too bad, and it may seem like I don't have much to complain about. It's just that my life is at a standstill. And at times, standing still is moving backwards. :fbm From a purely rational standpoint, I have to assume things are getting better. But I've been telling that myself for the past decade, the same amount of time I've been getting 'help' from mental health institutions. :shaq2 And in that decade, most of that progress has come from me naturally getting older/wiser.

There are theories that this is actually what drives these depressions and even suicides. The fact that you know that you got it good and the assumption that you can't really blame it on anyone but yourself. Whereas in third world countries you might just be busy trying to survive and can blame your situation on external factors.

Just looking at suicide rates, you can see that it's mostly a first-/ second world problem
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_suicide_rate

Not that it helps you in any way, but I don't really think you would've offed yourself

Fake edit: D'oh, just realized I missed a paragraph and you were referring specifically to mental health treatment. Oh well.

You'll find something better and they'll regret it.

Some years back when I was looking for a job, I interviewed at a place that I thought was totally going to go with me.  I was there for three years and was given the grand tour, taken around to meet people, etc.  Then I was told later that they had already found someone before they even interviewed me.  -_-  A year later the guy contacts me and I tell him I've found a job that pays more than and has more benefits than the one he was offering.  Felt good, man.

My mother is finally getting a divorce (older brother and I encouraged her to do it for 4 years) so that's a good thing but my father was prepared for it with money all in overseas banks so only assets that are in the country will probably get split. As a result, her personal checking account is really low so I've been increasingly paying the utilities/groceries/etc for the last few months but I can't really afford it so I have to move in with her while the house goes up for sale. My older brother is in medical school so I'm the only one who can help. Not a great situation but manageable.



All things considered it's not too bad, and it may seem like I don't have much to complain about. It's just that my life is at a standstill.

Getting older and wiser sounds like a great solution if your issue is with trying to become a better adjusted person, do you think your main issue is lack of confidence due to (I'm guessing) being disgruntled with social or professional accomplishments?

Regarding depression being a mostly first world thing, I  think that's mostly because of it being serious taboo to commit suicide in Islam/Catholicism. If I lived in a developing country, I'd have even more isolation/abuse for being deformed yet I've had the urge to commit suicide for my entire life in California. I can't imagine people physical/mental disabilities wanting to live longer in developing countries where there is more of a stigma.

As for SF, doesn't really count unless it's multiplayer. And multiplayer might be frustrating.


Practice!  Getting your ass kicked and learning from it will help you to get better.  I can always pick up a controller, jump online, and have a blast with SF4.  No matter what my mood is.

Worked a charity event, which is a host of Ls that need not be recounted here, but a member of my team was a noob and seeing their reaction to sums of money that aren't insubstantial but seem like nothing to me this deep in the game really hammered home how fucking out there I am.

I hate what I am and every morning when I wake up I wish that I hadn't.

You know what really sucks. In the good old days when I felt like fucking shit, I'd play some game as means of escapism. But now I feel like shit, what is there? MMOs have turned to shit. Multiplayer games have turned to shit. There's really nothing for me but to feel like shit while doing nothing i.e. stare out the window wondering what the point of life is.

Single player western RPGs are the best form of video escapism in my opinion...Witcher 3 accomplishes this well

Hyoushi, I'm sure you're sad right now, but you're a cool dude and will get past this. If you need a bright side, at least she figured this out before marriage and kids.

OTOH, and sorry in advance for the Real Talk, most relationships even approaching the 10 year mark require the M-word commitment. It may have been either one of you which wasn't ready for that, but it sounds like she decided move on. If this makes you re-evaluate the relationship and realize you'd like to be with her FOREVER, cool. If not, a wash of relief is what you should be feeling, in addition to any dizziness.

One of my friend's friends has gone missing.

She's been gone over a month, but everyday I keep seeing my friend's facebook page with more posts about vigils and searches and all that.

I think it was about two years ago when I posted here that my wife wanted to buy some $400 DVD set that was clearly from a scammer.  I ended up giving in and bought it for her.  She watched that shit once and I never saw it again.

Now she is all over this shit about taking "online courses" to become a "spiritual consultant."  I have to put that in quotes because it's yet another scam.  The kicker?  It's from the same fucking people who made the DVDs.  Can't budge on this one.  This "course" costs six thousand dollars.  Listening to her pitch this is like listening to a scammer-- "I'll make the money right back!  I'll get tons of clients!"  I asked her to show me the school's website.  Naturally, there isn't one.  Just a link to the e-commerce site that produces all this crap.  She gives me info on the guy running this.  His Facebook page says he worked at Sony.  The link to "Sony" goes to a Facebook page that nobody has ever visited or updated.   :lol ::)

She kept asking me for weeks if she could use six grand from our savings account.  Nope.  Not budging.  She finally gave up and tried to ask her parents instead.  I was a bit worried about them giving in, but fortunately her mom has been in contact with me and isn't giving her anything.  Freaked out a bit today when I came home and was shown an Email confirming that she signed up for the course.  This was in Japanese and listed what appeared to be a receipt, but fortunately this was just directions saying where to direct deposit the money.  Yeah, that's not shady or anything.  Contacted her mom, who told me that she hadn't and wasn't giving her any money, and asked me to make sure she doesn't try to get a loan or something.

So now my wife is acting super-depressed about this.  But to be honest, I think this is actually a good thing-- I think it may have finally hit her that either A) this is a scam and she fell for it or B) reality has kicked in and she realizes that she isn't getting that money, and is getting over it in her own way.  Am hoping this shit blows over by tomorrow or the next day.  Meanwhile, I did my part and have stayed super-positive and carefully chosen what I've been saying.  Am not saying "no" to anything, but simply that we all care about her well-being.

Is this depression?  Could be.  This all came up when she started looking around for a new job and didn't get anything.

Title: Re: Super Struggle Thread II: Turbo
Post by: Phoenix Dark on June 02, 2015, 12:38:46 AM
My most recent struggle...family shit. My grandma died a few years ago. Before she died she wrote a will, and was quite adamant that it be followed. For example my oldest male cousin received her house (which is in Detroit). I received an old Cadillac - like, late 70s old. One of my brothers received a 2000s Cadillac. My car needed a lot of work so it was worked on by a mechanic for awhile, who then put it in storage. My brother's car stayed in my grandma's garage.

I love my cousin, he introduced me to rap music, Street Fighter II and a host of other shit. But he's a dumbass. Late 30s, has only worked odd jobs that he can barely keep, is rather lazy, etc. Everyone knows this stuff, but my grandma always looked out for him; he lived with my grandparents for the final years of their lives, and overall looked after them although he fucked that up a few times. Anyway my grandma's house was paid off, all that remained was yearly taxes. I don't remember the exact tax number but it wasn't large, like <$3000 iirc. Well needless to say my cousin didn't pay a dime on the taxes after my grandma died. The house fell into disrepair, the lawn wasn't being cut, it just looked terrible. At one point he moved out, and would come by randomly to stay for a week or so.

On one such week when he was staying at the house he got into a fight with his girlfriend, who then proceeded to...start a fire in anger. The fire burned down the garage...where my brother's Cadillac was stored. After that my cousin moved out the house and didn't return.

So now the house is slowly being ripped apart. The block it's on used to be pretty nice, but has looked like Baghdad for the last 15 years. For whatever reason nothing has been shut off in the house, so neighbors are siphoning electricity and other shit from the house. Meanwhile copper pipes and other shit is disappearing daily. During all this madness some dude apparently has put the house on sale, claiming his grandmother gave it to him when she died. This guy isn't related to me, mind you. Obviously the tax issue means that the city will own the house soonish, but this dude is trying to sell.

Now to me, this is just a sad story that ultimately I can move on from. The city will take over the house and I'd imagine the block will be cleaned up and gentrified in 5-10 years. However my mom is obsessed with this. She is constantly going down to Detroit to look at the house, she has talked to the guy who is trying to sell it, etc. She's taken my dad down there too, as well as her brother (my uncle). She wants to go into the house. I have begged her to stop going down there, to let this shit go. As I mentioned earlier, the block is literally Baghdad, circa 2003. Who knows who is squatting in the house. My dad has demanded she not go into the house as well. Yet every other weekend she goes down there. It's only a matter of time before she walks in there, and I have a bad feeling about what could happen.

It's the house she grew up in as a child, I get it. But that time is gone. My grandparents have been dead for awhile, it's time to move on. Nothing good will come of going down there, yet I can't convince her to just walk the fuck away. To be perfectly honest I've contemplated just burning the place down. I won't do it, but I could easily get away with it. I'd rather have it burned down than have her walk in there alone and something bad happen to her.

It's a long story. It's in storage, and the mechanic who "fixed" it has decided it should be his. This isn't something that I'm going to fight over. I've spoken with him, he knew my grandmother very well but the dude is a dick. There are other reasons I'm not pressing the situation, which I won't go into.

Personally I'm not concerned about the guy trying to sell the house simply because starting the selling process is just going to make the city seize it faster than they normally would. That guy isn't going to win, he has no paperwork, etc.

Hehe. Well. Marriage isn't something that we were particularly interested in. But oh well. There are no hard feelings between us, it's just gonna take a while for me to get over it.

Nope, has nothing to do with it.  She's looking for a job doing data entry.  The spiritual consulting crap seems to come up when she's feeling bummed about work.  She hates her co-workers and wants a new job closer to home.  That's fine except this is never-ending and she ends up hating her co-workers at pretty much every job she gets.  In some cases it is absolutely justified, though.  My parents and I think a big part of the problem is her grasp of the English language/lack of confidence in her English ability.  She's gotten much, much better though.

So my parent's dog died last year and my mom was real tore up about it.

Thought about getting them a new puppy late this year. A nice one.
Turns out my aunt gave my mom a dog last week.

One they found up north on the streets, a stray
No idea of how old this shit is, looks anywhere between 1 and 5
No idea of whether or not it has shots or not, rabies, etc
This shit looks like a dirty ass mop you threw into a garbage then forgot for a year

It has a fucking tattoo under it's belly. This dog is fucking tatted up

Like that shit is awful as a pet owner, but all the same I'm like how the fuck did they think this was an okay thing to give my parents?
Then it turned out my mom is okay with it and likes the dog. Which means, like their last dog, it's my fucking responsibility to make sure that shit doesn't die of some shitty dog disease. So now I gotta drive to their pad, pick this fucking dog up and take it to the vet this week.

I'm in a flabby stage of life so sex is somewhat strenuous. After a mutual climax, I lay naked refusing to move waiting for all the sweat to evaporate(http://i.imgur.com/tsb8f0V.png)

Eventually I drift into a tranquil nap as my GF gets ready. I'm awakened by her pleas to get dressed, but I'm in a daze when I hear footsteps coming up the stairs.

I shut the bedroom door and fumble with my pants.

"Open the door," her stepdad exclaims.

"I'm getting dressed!" she replies.

After threatening to open it a few more times he fucks off into his own room and slams the door. We go to leave but realize his pickup is blocking my car in the driveway.

He comes downstairs so I say "what's up" to no reply. He slams another door on the way out, moves his truck, gets on his harley and takes off.

Get a text later saying he wants to make it very clear that I'm not allowed in the house when he's not there.

This nicca been trying to get to me to go to the gun range too.

I won't go into all the details about the mechanic but the dude is old and isn't really a mechanic; I doubt the car works, even after all these years. The bigger problem is that to get this resolved I'd have to get the police involved, and he isn't the type of guy I'd do that with. If you know what I mean.

He's the nice old guy in the neighborhood who owns a variety of businesses that aren't really businesses, gives people jobs that aren't really jobs, and if you owe him anything he collects it right on time.

I'm in a flabby stage of life so sex is somewhat strenuous. After a mutual climax, I lay naked refusing to move waiting for all the sweat to evaporate(http://i.imgur.com/tsb8f0V.png)

Eventually I drift into a tranquil nap as my GF gets ready. I'm awakened by her pleas to get dressed, but I'm in a daze when I hear footsteps coming up the stairs.

I shut the bedroom door and fumble with my pants.

"Open the door," her stepdad exclaims.

"I'm getting dressed!" she replies.

After threatening to open it a few more times he fucks off into his own room and slams the door. We go to leave but realize his pickup is blocking my car in the driveway.

He comes downstairs so I say "what's up" to no reply. He slams another door on the way out, moves his truck, gets on his harley and takes off.

Get a text later saying he wants to make it very clear that I'm not allowed in the house when he's not there.

This nicca been trying to get to me to go to the gun range too.

True, but they aren't close and he's really just the dude her mom remarried. She doesn't view him as a father figure.

If I was black I'd already be dead. Stepdad is a tea partier. She's a petite blond with a huge ass so good guess. All parties involved are cac as fuck and that's probably why he liked me up until now.

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

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.
Title: Re: Super Struggle Thread II: Turbo
Post by: Kara on June 18, 2015, 09:45:14 PM
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.

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. 
Title: Re: Super Struggle Thread II: Turbo
Post by: king of the internet on June 22, 2015, 12:40:08 PM
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

Some weird combination of CS/EE, which simply means that I wasted time on EE when all I wanna know is CS.

Second Bachelor's. Got a B.A. in a completely unrelated field a few years earlier.

The joys of "free" college education.

I wish I had paid more attention to my EE classes, they ended up being a lot more useful than I gave them credit for.

Then again I do a lot of systems level programming, if you're one of those pansy web developers using javascript I can see why you wouldn't need it

Not much of a developer at all. And yeah, I'll probably need EE somewhere down the road, I'm just not made for it. Something just shuts down when voltages and currents and fields come into play.

Also, I wish I had been better in my early math classes. Fucking matrices man. Still feeling the effects of not being good with them years later.

My thesis is in the area of medical applications, if it works out. Although, like I said, super basic stuff.

Title: Re: Super Struggle Thread II: Turbo
Post by: bork on July 01, 2015, 08:49:52 PM
Had to spend most of the day yesterday with my wife's sister.  Was not a pleasant experience.  Basically every time we've met on this trip, she acts like this:

"HURRY UP AND HAVE A BABY.  AREN'T YOU CONCERNED ABOUT HER HEALTH AND AGE?  HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT YOU AT ALL HE ONLY CARES ABOUT HIMSELF.  HURRY UP AND DIVORCE ALREADY.  WHY ARE YOU HERE WITH US?  WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING US?  GO AWAY I WANT TO TALK TO MY SISTER NOT YOU."

Pretty much over and over again.  Mind you I can't even get a word in edgewise, it's literally like I go "Hi!" and then get blasted for several hours non-stop.  The last thing she said to me yesterday after giving me a death stare was "GET A DIVORCE" and then she ignored her beloved sister and sped off in her car as quickly and loudly as possible.

This is pretty typical behavior from her.  She's a total bitch.  I can understand her wanting a niece but the way she verbalizes it is completely wrong.  I really, really feel for her current boyfriend, who I suspect will not be together with her for much longer based on how her previous relationships have turned out.  They've been dating for two months and she's already talking about marriage and having a baby.  The poor guy...his grandfather just passed and we were told he was pretty broken up with it.  Rather than go spend time with the guy, my wife's sister went shopping instead.  Such a caring person.   :lol :-\

Yeah, something like that. I have the folate defect.

RE medication: not really until my current regimen. One of the silver linings to being treatment-resistant is that meds just take some of the edge off, they don't actually make you better so if you discontinue them suddenly it's just what you always felt but worse. When I had my first episode in my early 20s I had to stop treatment suddenly because I lost insurance and was too skint to pay out of pocket and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Anyway, my core medication relieves the unipolarity completely but in its place it gives me a pseudo bipolarity which tbh I'm not cut out for enduring. I'd rather have consistent shitfeels than unpredictable severe shitfeels. I suppose this is a somewhat "normal" emotional pattern, but I'm pretty gassed at this point and it seems worse than it is.

Fuck my fucking life.

Waiting more than two years for vital ENT appointment to get prescribed steroids for a left nose blockage as specialist and standard GP's can't perscribe them. There's a nasal spray that has some relief but it means I wake up every morning with the taste of blood in my mouth. Humid days make it completely close over and give headaches, my sense of smell is vastly reduced and my left eye now twitches. Can't do anything emergency wise unless it starts severely obstructing my breathing.

Called them again. Still on the waiting list and will be months before I'm seen.

None, really. Can't afford health insurance at the mo' so ended up trying a Polish clinic which were pretty legit and cheap. Couldn't get anything out of em' outside of a cheap scan that showed there was likely no surgery required. They refused to prescribe anything stronger even though they said it was treatable with oral steroids and would only leave that decision up to the hospital. They wrote a recomendation letter I was seen sooner but no go.

Though I got a letter this morning saying I was on the waiting list for so long they are going to place me at another hospital to get seen sooner. So maybe light at the end of the tunnel soon. :yeshrug

Executive leadership has gotten to the point where they realize the project is a lost cause like I've been telling them since I got there 9 weeks ago and are starting to distance themselves leaving me as the fall guy.

I've been there.  Two years ago there was some project that was doomed from the start that me and three other managers worked on.  I was told that since I was the low guy on the totem pole that I was going to take the hit.  The VP of the department wound up pinning it on another manager, resulting in his early retirement.  That's why I have a bunch of emergency reserve cash and I save and invest a lot of my money: there may be a time where I have to bounce and I don't want to get stressed out about it.

Struggle/triumph crossover: injured my knee pretty severely due to a mishap, could barely walk a couple days ago and it's still fucked up bad but I'm doing better. I can limp really fast now.  8) But more importantly I scored some pills (not from the doctor, obv) and between that, the weed and the booze I've been feeling amazing. Off work today, might just stay in bed all day in a semi-comatose state. Maybe The Lord is finally ready to take me away. :rejoice

Forcing yourself to eat failed food attempts due to hunger or pride :lawd

One time I tried to recreate an awesome camp stew at home. The stew consisted of various vegetables, beef chunks, seasonings, pancake mix, and some other shit I still don't remember. I used too much pancake mix and created the nastiest shit I've ever produced in a kitchen. Having blown most of my food budget I had to eat a bowl of that shit; no matter how much creole seasoning I dumped in it still tastes bland and dry. I couldn't admit defeat tho.

My pay (and that of all my coworkers under the same status) is now 12 days late, which is a travesty considering we are already paid around the 10 of each month and that we received numerous communications from above that dates would be upheld. The company I am working for has currently lapsed back under legal protection and should change owners in a few days which could involve legal shenanigans for my upcoming wage...

Also atmosphere is lousy, half the fulltime employee force will probably be jobless by next month, supervision has become non-existent.

Being attracted to a therapist seems fkin wrong, bruh. Although it does seem a bit odd you get her to laugh.

Probably one of those uncomfortable laughters, tho. You're too enamored with her looks to notice. :hitler

Edit: oh shit, I just remember I had a young therapist long ago. I think I was attracted to her. At least, I thought she was attractive/beautiful. She was absolutely stunning. Beautiful, virtually flawless round face. Very nice curly hair, in a brown or dark red kind of color. Slim. And possibly busty but I can't quite remember those details.

No laughing, though.

(http://www.thecoli.com/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/sadbron.png)

Nah I'm not that spergy, I can tell the difference. I'm good at charming older women and I say that without irony in a genuine douche kind of way.

We get off topic a lot and just shoot the shit about life and we were cracking up about this dumb billboard with a flabby shirtless dude targeting men to join Yoga.

It's not self-deprecating laughter either or like it's happening at inappropriate topic times (though that would be funny af having her laugh at my troubles).

She thinks I'm intelligent and we enjoy talking to one another. With therapists you always got to be assessing chemistry to see if they're a right fit and I'm more comfortable with her than the last 4 I tried.

It is fucked up though in a sense and will never be acted upon...I think :larry

Basically on your biweekly income report there's a question, "Did you refuse work?" that you self-report. That's it.

Where you can get fucked is if you answer "Did you look for work?" in the affirmative and the box is checked that compels you to list who you applied to. In all my time volunteering to help people with their unemployment insurance claims I never saw that happen, but if you're looking for things to worry about it's that and not what you were worried about.

(I'm assuming you're OK with lying on government forms.)

I hate being queried for business advice by people who ended up in that dank petit bourgeois game by birth instead of aptitude because not only do I have to work extra hard at dressing up basic facts in a way that doesn't insult the advice seekers, but I have to confront the fact that whatever (if one were being generous) success I have has as much to do with my masochistic capacity to endure privation as any particular skill on my part and that that success cost me pretty much everything I do care about and is currently used to subsidize nothing of particular import

So the final propositions of buying back the company that gives me work has been given to the court. Two out of three potential buyers made an effort to lay less people.

It's pretty ridiculous how rigged this all feels. Restructure your company right on the eve of judicial break and during the summer vacation months.

Or think bonobos are a template for human behavior. Anyway, what's done is done.

News from the western industrial decline part number ?

Turns out the two companies battling for buying my employer are not doing that hot either. First one is under legal protection and they will probably merge us with a competitor they acquired and that is basically in the same situation as us (Guess Chapter 11 lite in France)... The other potential buyer has 6 times the debt we have (trivia : it is ten year old, my employer has existed for more than a century). I know it's never all the story but really it's just one more of those things that makes the whole thing absurd. Seems they're racing to reach critical mass so as to be "too big to fail".

Judge will decide tomorrow and Monday we'll be a new company and at our level we have no idea what will be going on. One of the buyers is basically doing away with all the managing staff in our department while on the other hand having little to no experience in our craft. Good times ahead.

Does anyone know what kind of  bug this is?

I flew from Massachusetts to Singapore recently.  The trip was about 35 hours and involved 3 flights.  I checked on some luggage and noticed last night that one of my bags was infested.  I'd imaging getting rid of of them will be a lot easier once I can identify them.

Already threw away the duffle bag they were in, but I kept the clothes since I really don't have that much with me.  They're really small too, less than a centimeter in length.  Haven't come across too many so far today since I've been outside of my room a lot.  Nevertheless I feel paranoid enough to the point where I suspect they're the cause of every itch.  They've got me closely examining my skin all throughout the day even when I'm nowhere near the building.

So my employer was sold off to one of the candidates. My department head is fired and she preferred to pack off at once and leave. She had her temper and flaws but if not for her letting get my hand on the job I would have been in a direr personal financial position 18 months ago. She was also protective of her employees, pretty lax with what we could do in the workshop and had experience in what we do. All in all it fostered a good ambiance at work and motivated us to go above and beyond our obligations in work. So  :-\

Well, hopefully everything turns out fine on your end.  I don't know if you plan on/expect to be able to stay much longer.

I'm working under an exceptional status as a glorified interim worker (while working more hours last year than a fulltime employee) and one of the few perks of that is that I'm free to go anywhere or even to work for several companies. Whether I stay there is dependent upon activity. The new owner told the judge first thing he was gonna do is renegociate with our biggest client, and that may shift the field completely. At one point I will probably have to go elsewhere to muscle the resume (I wouldn't rule out trying to work in Britain, Benelux... but I need to pay my dues in the French market first) and the pay was never really all that (although decent in absolute terms).

As for your bugs, you found them in duffle ? Maybe some kind of a moth / tick ? Maybe try lavander bags or printed newspapers stored with your clothes.

The problem with her was that she happened to be best friends with my girlfriend at the time.  :sabu I was actually trying to get with her when I met the ex. :neogaf As my feelings waned for the girlfriend they grew in favor of her but I knew it it could never be so I let it go. :noah

New management came to work to do some pep talk yesterday. They were held up at the gate for 10mn asking where the meeting was :lol because while having announced they were coming, they obviously didn't give a call to personnel representatives. They pussy-footed a lot about the lay-offs, arguing that they were victims of the short delays and legal obligations. For sure, there's quite a lot of improvisation going on, but it seems somewhat convenient (I mean, at one point, they were still the ones deciding that 80 people had to go). Good news though is that by doing so and saying the saved positions list was not yet definitive they opened a door that may let us argue that our department manager must be kept.

Otherwise the usual talk of progress, digital revolution, international focus and ascetic management.

There's lazy, extremely obese "lady" on my team at work.  (So lazy and heavy that she refuses to even take the regular elevator and will waddle on over to the closer freight elevator, sometimes waiting as long as 15 minutes, instead of walking a few more steps)  She somehow managed to get promoted to the same level as me, which was always baffling, because she not only does a typically horrible job, but also cannot spell or use proper grammar.  Her support tickets are an embarrassment to anyone working Help Desk support.

She's been doing poorly and was put on a corrective action plan, pretty much meaning that she was headed for termination.  Amazingly, I saw an employee exit notice for her last week.  Heard she got a job at Dell, which is just... :lol.  I expect to see her try to come back here after they fire her, because there's no way another company is going to put up with her bullshit.

So now she's just become ultra-lazy and doesn't give a shit, at all.  This has led to some amazing examples of laziness.  For example, she got a request to set up a video conference.  We don't handle stuff like this at all; we just need to gather information and escalate the ticket to the firm's local support team.  The request came in under "CHANGE THIS REQUESTER."  The firm's head of IT even happened to see the ticket and left a note saying to put it under a temp ID. 

Lazy bitch just writes "she don have no id" and directly-escalates the ticket to the local queue, without doing anything.  Doesn't change the due date/time, create a proper request summary, or anything.  I happened to get a reply to it, took it back from the local queue, put a quality control comment on it, and gave it back to her.  She then takes the ticket and just escalates it again.  I take it back, add another comment, and give it back to her.  She waits another 10 minutes until the end of her shift and just leaves with the ticket still in her own queue.   :lol :-\  I took it back and handled it, then showed it my supervisor, who pretty much reacted with:
:dead

Today I found another excellent ticket from this person.  There was an Email reply from a local tech, regarding an equipment request, sent to a secretary.  It was very obvious that this was A) a reply, B) a request made on behalf of someone else, and C) an equipment request, which we just escalate. 

She took the reply, created a new ticket out of it, then proceeded to spam the secretary with Emails and phone calls saying "we ned moer reserch" and if she needed help.  Never seen anything like this before.  I can only assume that she was doing this as a way to avoid getting incoming calls or Email. 

After she's gone, that's the end of the morons on this team.  There's still one guy left who also doesn't seem to give a shit and is also kind of a fuck-up, but he's like a genius in comparison to this waste of space.  I expect to see him quit soon, too.  Interestingly enough, the other two major fuck-ups also both quit.

Have you ever had that complete realization that you are a broken and useless indivudual that wants to do die? I feel like I have that last part every day. I always want to die? I'm such a pointless person. Unable to really connect with people. My future looking so pointless and worthless. I go to school for writing and I"m so shitty at it. You all can read my posts here and on GAF and you know I'm an idiot, why the hell would I even bother with some artistic bull shit. Yet, for whatever reason thats where I was pushed into. I was never good at anything and so for whatever reason I found myself(in my 2nd go around) in writing. What a fucking crock of shit. An art degree will get me no where and I might as well simply kill myself now as I'm bound to be the 40 year old working at target living with my mother. My future job shit scares me and I'm so afraid to admit it to anyone. My mother asures me to keep going and I think she does that because One, shes's an idiot, and two she simply dosen't know what else to do. It's such a waste this schooling. It will lead me nowhere and I'm such shit at it.

I am drunk and I think thats good because I feel that losens me up and it allows me to say what I'm afraid to. I know everyone thinks I'm a loser, a special fellow, an idiot. I am and I want to die so much. You say, go see a psychatrist. A good idea, but I doubt even talking to them will fix my biggest problem. I simply want to be accepted somewhere, by someone, I want people to actually like me. I want people to want me. No one wants me here and I feel I try to push that so very much. it's so strange, I have a problem where I try to sabatage things. I want people to hate me so I say things that I know will push that button, but at the same time I want people to actually like me. I'm so fucked up(Evangelion refrence).

I could talk to a doctor about this, but they wont help the fundemetnal problem that I'm just so broken and mentally ill. You know I tired to tell my mother that, but she refused to belive me. She thought me maybe just a bit angsty and spoiled, but not mentally ill. Idk. Is she an idiot, someone who loves me too much, or someone who refuses to belive she failed that much, or someone who just dosen't want to belive her son is a psycho, but I am. I lack the ability to feel empathic to people.

But I'm so sad. Even now when I've hit the peak of people caring about me and actually liking me thanks to work, I've attempted to sbatage it and the feelings of love esxape me. I just want to be loved so much. I just want to touch a female so much. You people think me some terrible monster mothbreather, but I just want someone to actually want me and I don't know how to make that so. I don't know what to do and I feel that I'm too late. Even if a girl wanted me I'd scare them away because fuck I have no experince with them, I don't know how to treat them, I don't know how to do anything. I don't know how to respond. I'd be a freak and no girl would want that. I missed several life learning experinces and my development is so stalled that I think I'm pretty much fucked beyond repair.

I am so ready to die. I have to do so much in order to be diserable to anyone. I need to change my body, change my personality, change well me. It all feels very insurmountable and I don't know how to do it. it all feels very much like the cards where stacked against me. and in the end I still feel like I wont be anything worthwhile. My body is shit, my personality has too many imperfecitons and so on. It's like why wouldnt I just be better off kiling myslef? As I get older, I lose less time obviously and wont be able to change anything. Hell I'd scare anyone away once they actually get to know the real me.

It's so shitty being a mixed person. What is their to be comfortable about? What is thier to be accepted in? I feel like in the end my upbringing failed me so much. You all think I'm a racist and I probably am. It's not that I dislike black people, it's just well god damnt every day my sterotype about them is confimrned. Every day I meet a ratchet black person. An ignorant one. A whatever. it's toxic and I'm stupid for thinking it, but I mean everyday. I go to the movies? Who's being loud? Who seems lazy and ignorant at work? Who tries to steal from my place of employment? Who tends to dress like a thug? I feel so bad when I automaticly assume this black male dressed with his shorts sagging and in a long white shirt is probablly trying to fraud target when he tries to buy a PS4, but more than 50% of the time thats what happens. It's that image, that fake overly generlized steortype that i've grown up that I don't want to be a part of. And since I don't look black I can not be a part of it.

Black kids use to always say I acted white? Why? Because I did'nt like basketball and other shallow things.

But white people are the first to notice that you aren't quite white. i've never felt comfortable around all white groups. Hell, I have maybe one white friend and he considers himself "grey". All my friends are black, asian, or mexican. nothing but minorties.Which is the only thing I feel comfrotable idtenifying with, minority. A more definite statement is a no. Thats so terrible, growing up feeling like you belong to no group, no culture, no nothing. Maybe you'd think that would help develop a strong person, but it did'nt it just made me weaker as I never turly felt like I belonged anywhere.

You make fun of me for my obbsession over GAF, but at some point I felt like I belonged there. people thought I was an idiot, thought I had bad taste even if they did'nt know what my taste was, but the point was people knew me and so at least I felt like I was something. I felt happy when people regardless of ill or good actually rememberd something about me. Of course, I got kicked out and it's hurt me since. Yes, I get how pathetic that is, but I'm a pathetic person.

Which I don't see getting that much better. I'm so impossbily lonley. Sure I have friends, but friends don't subsitiute for that inante sexual belononing you desire from people. yes, i could pay a hooker for a blowjob or sex. yes, that would relive me wanting to blow off some steam(bennet!) but it wont satisfy other feelings. And no chick would want a person who makes post like this and I'm obiously putting too much emphais and hope on a supoosed relationship. it's just a vicious cycle whose outcome won't be good for anyone. I'm so afraid that even if I were to find myself in a relationsip it would screw itself thanks to my direct or indirect actions that I would take it so hard and come out worse. I'm so afraid that I wont be able to even get that far.

But I simply desire human contact so much and not the fake kind you find. I havent had it ever and thats such a bad premise. Can you imagine being 25 and being denined probably thanks to yourself human wanting. it's so sicking and only makes me feel worse about myself. I want to die so much. I just hate myself so much. I hate what I've beomce and will become, because it's not going to get better. I'm never going to become self sufficent, because fuck my college education is a waste and I'm not good at anything. I'm an idiot. I just want to die.  It's all I want, but I'm afraid to even do that. 

Yes, go talk to a psyhcatist. A psychatrist is'nt going to love me and actually want me in a sexual way. Thats creepy.  I just wish so much I wasn't borne the way I was. I hate everything about my so much and you cant fix that.

Psychiatrists/Psychologists aren't supposed to love you, they're supposed to fix you or, rather, help you fix yourself. You're just making up reasons why you shouldn't get help, when you clearly are unhappy and could use assistance out of your situation.

Men get baby fever too. It doesn't mean you literally want a baby, it means (at a certain age) your hormones make you crazy. All that worry about a career or becoming a provider, or dread of the future are all tied up into it. Dig down into the roots of your misery and that's what you'll see looking back. Your biological clock. It's the engine that keeps this all going, but it doesn't mean you should let it kill you.

Recognize it for what it is, compartmentalize it, and push it to the back of your mind.

The biggest source of pain I had in my twenties was "How I 'feel' now, is how I will feel forever. I can't feel way this for another 40-50 years". But it's not true. You won't feel that way forever and this fever will pass and you'll be able to appreciate the small things in life. You'll laugh at what you once thought was so important.

It will happen.

Middle management has been nuked across the board and so far no one to fill their places. We've been told to continue current work by ourselves (we get to run the sovkhoz before the hammer drops on us, weee !) for contracts no longer existing at this point and as far as we know the people still there haven't received the new company information and are unable to bill clients or work contracts for us.

Sorry it took me awhile to reply to you, Rah. I saw your post this morning but I had to walk into hell and couldn't spare the time then, which leads me to my next point.

There's no quick fix to seemingly insurmountable problems. All you can do is decide if you have what it takes to start picking at them bit by bit, and if you do, get going at it.

Is that shit? You bet, especially with how easily you can build up those problems in the first place, but the only other option besides chipping away at them piecemeal is letting them get bigger and bigger, which is just going to make you feel even more like garbage. (As an example, people prone to depression are often paralyzed by their illness and this paralysis exacerbates their mental state. The classic manifestation of this is the messy room / flat / house / et cetera that the person can't clean up because they're depressed but the mess makes them feel more and more depressed.)

I'm not exactly trying at life anymore, but I take a certain masochistic satisfaction in taking one on the chin from it, wiping my mouth and asking if that's all it's got before I get up to take another. It's like one of my Japanese animes. You might find you're the same way, who knows if you duck the punches?

People who have what you want don't really look at how they got there often, but the truth of it is that all they really did to get there was make a choice at a juncture. My entire career I owe to taking one dumb class in college and making the most of it while I was enrolled in the course (and pulling my chestnuts out of the fire when I fucked up as I am wont to do, but that's neither here nor there). I didn't even really want to take accounting but I thought I needed to take it if I wanted to get into higher level business. You've got to put yourself in situations where you come to junctures and have to choose, if you throw your hands up and quit no more junctures will ever come your way and you'll never dig your way out of your situation. You're going to make the wrong decision more often than the right, I won't sugarcoat things, but the nice thing is that once you're moving it takes longer for the consequences to catch up with you. (At present they pretty much come your way at the speed of light since you're treading water.)

I don't really have "big picture" advice for you, and even if I did I'm a huge fuck up and self-conscious enough to know it'd probably be bad advice because of that, but from knowing you the poster at the bore dot com, I'd suggest two things to you.

One, take some of the edge off. When someone has a disagreement with you it often devolves into something like punching a brick wall. Maybe we just get the worst of your personality, but it's really hard for me to believe that that part of who you are doesn't manifest at all offline. If someone's talking to you they want to talk to you and being a brick wall, while requiring talking to function, isn't really the talking anyone is after when they engage you. Maybe this happens because you're on the spectrum, maybe it's a defense mechanism you throw up, the why isn't important so much as how you're going to mitigate it.

Two, give your mom a break. Maybe she's too dumb to see the truth of the matter, maybe she doesn't want to face her own failings as a parent, but she's giving you positive encouragement when you can't even give it to yourself. A lifetime ago I wanted to be a writer, my first and only published work (I introduce this fact not to pass myself off as some sort of Rimbaud, but to establish my level of commitment to the pursuit) was actually written and published when I was a minor. When it came time to go to university I applied to a bunch of places to study writing and not only did my family not support that, it was made explicitly clear to me that I'd be cut off if I went down that road. I didn't have the courage then to do what I wanted, unfortunately (or not, who knows?). If your response to love and support is to intellectualize its validity away I have a hard time seeing you ever finding consensual love (by which I mean romantic).

This got a lot longer than I wanted it to get but whatever. GLHF out there. :bolo

Rah, you feel like you don't have any worth to the point of wishing death upon yourself because your need for love isn't being met, right? If you want to be the kind of emotionally open person that is easily loved, I would recommend forgiving yourself for being how you currently are. Think about what needs of yours aren't being met, think about how that makes you feel, forgive yourself, take action.

Nobody is going to give a fuck about you or even notice you if you aren't putting in effort in some form or fashion - whether that means bettering yourself emotionally, physically, professionally, whatever. You've constantly expressed that you have no interest in doing any of that so...

I hate to be a dick but I think a lot of people here used to be at a low point in some form or fashion socially. I had to kick myself out my room and just put myself out there. Going to the gym, or going to a restaurant, etc. Just being around random people and talking to folks. I went to events that I'd normally never go to, especially in college. I even met Cheebs for christs sake. Obviously everyone isn't going to have the same plan but you have to find something that works for you. If not you'll just do what you've been doing: making the same post over and over every few months.

Not really.

Their website is vary sparse. I can find very little information out there on them. Any reviews I find are minimal and usually close together in date. Their listed from Stroudsburg, PA and the address on the contract seems to go to a fucking house based on google maps. BBB shows them but an office in Florida (with a disconnected number listed). A website called ripoffreport shows a report of that office being accused of scamming people and shows them having multiple names.

I should have done more research. I was super anxiety driven because I couldn't find a place to move me in time. Now it's Sunday and no companies are open and I'm freaking out. I have little over a week to make a move happen and I don't know waht to do.

Yeah assuming you have a car,  you could transport your bare essentials (clothes/computers/irreplaceable belongings) and the furniture and other big stuff can go in the hands of the company if you have renters insurance.

The insurance should be effective immediately so you can get it today, it's good to have just for peace of mind so you don't get yourself (too) stressed out about theft.

"Phoenix, Phoenixxxx! How are you!"
"Oh I'm good how about yourself?"
"I'm good. [insert daughter's name] was asking about you recently!"
"Oh...cool. Well tell her I said hi"
"Your mom said you need a girlfriend *laughs*"

Coffee > Mio, but Mio is still good to me.

For me, Wellbutrin evens out the lows of adderall use and makes everything more consistent.

Plus it's good for energy. I hate substances that make you drowsy unless it's some nice indica and even then, that's more of a mellow feeling than being tired af.

I swear I'm over her, but I still get dreams about my old HS GF. It's been 7 years or so yet some deep seated part of my brain is excessively bitch made :'(

The dreams that haunt me most are about the ones where you know things could have worked out, but they didn't for whatever reason.

That jewish chick from freshmen year :foxx

About having no direction, aren't you working on your masters? You're set dude. You're bettering yourself.

Just realized I was sitting on a potato chip. Went to the restroom and yes there is now a grease stain on the back of my pants. I had a few chips on lunch but I have no idea how one got on my chair. :beli

between this, the belt fiasco a few weeks ago, and my mom running into me during a recent lunch break and telling me she bought me some shirts (as my coworkers held in smirks)...I'm pretty sure my coworkers must think I'm eight years old.

Once when I was working with people with mental disabilities I wore a shit with the buttons done one off all day.  One of my co workers finally mentioned it at the end of the day.  All the people with mental disabilities could do their buttons correctly.  However sitting on a potato chip is far worse and i'm embarrassed for you.

Also while thinking about that girl and sitting on food, on the grade 7 field trip I sat on a smore right before the bus ride back.  Thankfully I sat on both chocolate and marshmellow, since had it just been the former it could have been mistaken for me shitting myself.   She tried to make fun of me for it but the marshmellow was my defense. 


I also didn't try to eat the smore goop on my ass PD

Wellbutrin is doing its job smoothing out the highs and lows of addy use.

I woke up today early and can get out of bed, have a nice coffee, and not feel like total shit until I take my adderall.

Mental health issues are awful and I feel bad for the people who don't have access to the right meds and CBT, or don't have a support group and other resources.

I am very fortunate and will keep making strides getting my shit together. The pace isn't always what I want it to be, but these small changes will build up over time.


Anyone really struggling, keep being persistent and educate yourself on your treatment. Advocate for yourself when speaking to your doctor.

I've been at it for years and I know it's frustrating as fuck, but the next med(s) you try may be just what you needed.

Same goes for therapists and doctors. If it's not working, find someone else. Someone you're comfortable with that is best suited for you.

For me, that's a sexy older woman who nurtures the soul with CBT worksheets and engaging conversation :smug

Right side of my hairline seems to be slowly getting worse, so I've been wondering how I would look with a shaved head. I have a big ass head though and can't grow a beard at all, so I feel like a baldy would look horrible on me.

No. I've thought about it, but I can't bring myself to do it. Not yet at least. What sucks is that it might not even be male pattern baldness. It could be damage from when I was young & dumb and would get my hair cornrowed all the time smh. Maybe I should see a doc or something just to be sure. Dunno if they'd be able to confirm that.

Please understand."

Also, just today I gave that same excuse of "Oh, I didn't get enough sleep last night. That's why I'm jittery." To the grocery store cashier today while I was writing a check. Which was a lie. I had plenty of sleep.  :stahp

She even said to me, "Hey, are you okay? You can take your time with that check you know."

And I'm all: "Hahaha! Yeah, I'm fine! Hahaha!" *b-lines out the door*

Drinking from a box and pushing yourself to finish it so it "doesn't go bad" :preach

The best thing about drinking absinthe is that if you pass out with a full glass the room STINKS to high heaven for a whole day so you get that extra motivation to power through the blackout.

I "won" $5 margaritas for a group at a nearby tequila bar and you can imagine how I'm feeling right now. Eight margaritas and no dinner later...

Also took a four hour nap on the sidewalk last night. My life is literally in the gutter. :rejoice

Btw this was that night:

Someone knocked at my door at 3am looking for someone that lives 2 or 3 houses down. Motherfucker, if you don't know where someone lives, 3am isn't a good time to figure it out. He didn't even seem high.
I'm legitimately interested in how you actually addressed this person at 3AM, and how long it took you to get back to sleep.

I started with Kubler, it's a reasonable (by absinthe standards) costing brand but it's a pretty potent flavor, like drinking a ski slope.

I'd probably recommend starting with La Clandestine, it's a very clean so you can tell if you like the core flavor of absinthe before you start diving into all the crazy herb infused ones. Pretty much any blanche (clear) one is a good starting place since by default they have less herbs.

Oh yeah, newbie absintheur #lifehacks:

-A fork works just fine as an absinthe spoon. Absinthe spoons are just a symbol of how dedicated you are to being a degenerate, nothing more.
-Sugar cubes are on the baking aisle in the grocery store.
-You will have far too many sugar cubes for your needs when you buy a box so plan accordingly.
-There are a lot of shady knockoffs / cash-ins, make sure the label ALWAYS says "absinthe superieure," the feds require you to label absinthe that.
-Never refrigerate your absinthe, just keep it in a liquor cabinet or something similar.

Looking up absinthe in wiki...

Quote
The custom of drinking absinthe gradually became so popular in bars, bistros, cafés, and cabarets that, by the 1860s, the hour of 5 p.m. was called l'heure verte ("the green hour"). Absinthe was favoured by all social classes, from the wealthy bourgeoisie, to poor artists and ordinary working-class people. By the 1880s, mass production had caused the price of absinthe to drop sharply. By 1910, the French were drinking 36 million litres of absinthe per year, as compared to their annual consumption of almost 5 billion litres of wine.

As a francophile I can't believe I haven't gotten in on this shit sooner. :lawd

Though obviously making wine my go-to has worked out favorably. :jawalrus

One critic claimed:

Absinthe makes you crazy and criminal, provokes epilepsy and tuberculosis, and has killed thousands of French people. It makes a ferocious beast of man, a martyr of woman, and a degenerate of the infant, it disorganizes and ruins the family and menaces the future of the country.

It's funny how French a drink it was for a period of time and how that was annihilated by the ban. Pastis (which is a similar style of spirit) eventually filled the void, but people don't really know about the link between pastis and absinthe if they even know about pastis in the first place.

I don't know for certain. I just assume I have some sort of social anxiety even though I haven't been properly diagnosed.

Now that I have a good chunk of money to spend, after saving it for two years while I was living with my parents, I'll probably try to get some sort of professional help.

And yes, I could be worse off. Sorry about your shitty situation whatever it may be.  :(

ah you'll start to learn which clients/projects you can milk. for example i have a client i can bill 3 hours of my time to even though i only spend like 20min actually working. the rest of budget is for the director's review time. always ask the person who assigns you a task what the deadline and budget is or how long you're expected to take

Anyways my struggle today went like so:  I accidentally code-switched into Russian today in front of a respectable client who drives a Porsche 911 GT3 with a 'Don't re-nig in 2012' bumper sticker in the front window.  This combined with forgetting to take off my hammer and cycle broach last week makes me worry that he might think I'm left-leaning.   To relieve the stress, I got on my bike with a hand crafted German gear system and Dutch-cis gendered frame and as I was biking - at my 11th current record time - my Mio Energy kicks in and knocks me off my rhythm, causing the Budenovka I was wearing to fall into my spokes sending me flying face first right into my client's/mob boss's big tittied side-dish, who then, thankfully, murdered me.  I think this is all because mommy didn't love me.

Got up around 5AM and thought I heard the shower on. Walked out my room and realized the washing machine hose had burst, and the laundry room was flooding. Luckily the water had seemingly only been spraying for a few minutes or else I would have been fuuucked. The water was spraying directly at the one angle I could use to get behind the washing machine quickly, so I got soaked before I could turn the water off. Cleaned up the mess, said fuck it and went to bed.

Woke up around 1PM and put my handy man XP to use. Thankfully the water pipes are fine, only the hot and cold hoses blew. Removed the broken hose connector, which had seemingly rusted to shit and thus took awhile. Headed to Home Depot to buy two hoses - stainless steel, it looks like it'll last. Connected it, turned the water back on...no leak
:whew

Seemingly no water damage, although some water got into the furnace. Overall what could have been a weekend long repair job costing hundreds of dollars (depending on if I could do it myself or call a plumber) turned out to only cost me $21 (for the hoses). Thank you based god. Lord knows I'm not about that welding life, so glad I didn't have to do shit but change the hose.

Turns out the water must have gotten into the water heater and knocked out the pilot light; didn't realize it until early in the evening when I finally took a shower. Headed to the dollar store (didn't see Dollar Store Girl tho), picked up one of those long lighters, went home and lit the pilot light with ease.

The only way this weekend can get more manly is if I get laid. Might call Dollar Store Girl... :brazilcry

Internet was down nearly all day. About 3 weeks ago I bought a new modem (Surfboard SB6121) to replace my old one, which was disconnecting 5-8 times a day and was no longer supported by Comcast. The new modem increased my speeds quite a bit, however a couple days ago it started DCing once a day; I didn't think it was a huge deal. Then today it was down from around 12PM-9PM.

I have a Comcast tech coming out tomorrow on the holiday (!) but jesus, I'm tired of this shit. The only reason I haven't bolted it because I'm still under contract with Comcast and the competitors are limited in my area.

Yea. Today the tech came out. He said the signal strength was pretty low/weak, and ended up replacing the splitter outside. I think he did some other shit too but I'm not sure. Everything seemed to be working and then I DC'd again about 5 hours after he left. Granted it was a short DC, and replugging the modem fixed it, but still. I'll monitor the situation and see how it works this week.

Do you guys disconnect during the week?

When I set up my new modem last Sunday I couldn't connect until I changed the router DNS to Google, and then it was disconnecting like every hour. Disconnecting from the router and switching back immediately fixed it for my laptop but it was still annoying. Then after four days it stopped and has been smooth sailing since. I'd just keep an eye on it and see if it continues to be a problem.

All that shit comes from just having a dry nose, you can actually stop it easily by putting a little petroleum jelly at the opening of your nose before you go to bed. Thing is then you have fucking jelly in your nose and no one's about that business. Also humidifiers, but again who wants to sleep in damp shit.

I thought you were fucking with me about neurotransmitter tests. They actually exist?

Just never felt a benefit from SSRIs really, but of course I feel its side effects of low energy and low libido.

I take Prozac and Wellbutrin for antidepressants. Wellbutrin isn't an SSRI at least, and should improve energy/libido.

Want to drop the Prozac and just stick with Wellbutrin for an antidepressant.

As one not damned to be a lollygagging lifehaver, some of the most #struggle days for me are when I've been working in an office for a few hours before it opened and still being there when the lollygagging lifehavers come in for their 9 to 5 or whatever their mandatory servitude to capital is and proceed to not get to work and yak about cabbages and kings while I'm going full bore because I have to pretend I'm zoned out to avoid being sucked into banal cubicle monkey discussions even though I'm not zoned out and can hear every excruciating word.

This morning the conversation used to torture me involved over analyzing some email like it's Game of Thrones outchea instead of the Game of Drones it actually is and eventually it got to a point where my tormentors were baffled by something being in London but being in Canada and I eventually I had to break kayfabe and point out that there's a London, Ontario, which drew :what 's and I had to pretend that I was somewhat sure of this instead of absolutely certain with every bone in my body you fucking cretins because the situation was already :snoop.

If I should die before I wake pray no soul I have to take. Go Knights Go.

My boss last year: what are these offset acounts?

Me: basically, everything that isn't already categorized goes into here. It's largely supplies and maintenance expenses. I can separate them out if you want, but it's gonna take a couple weeks as it's a lot of work and I'll need to ask you questions about a lot of stuff.

Boss: nah, don't worry about it.

...

Boss today: so, I'm buying a new building and my accountant wants a breakdown of all the stuff from these offset accounts. What are those?

Dodged another struggle bullet brehs :rejoice

Last night my car stopped working at a stop light (busy intersection btw). I couldn't get it to start, thought I was fuuuuuuucked...then my dad literally happened to drive past me  :lol

He had some jumper cables, we tried that to no avail. Tried some other shit before pushing the car into a parking lot. Right before calling AAA I said "maybe I can put some gas in..." I was sort of on E when it stopped working. Turns out I had run out of gas. No other issues. Well, I guess my gas meter must be off a bit or something but that's no big deal.

So many major problems avoided this month :whew

smh it damages the fuel pump when gas level gets low enough to suck in air. The gasoline acts as a lubricant for the pump.

I always make sure to refill when there's at least a couple gallons left in the tank.  :smug

My last car had a fuel gauge that would slowly creep to the half full point...and then just collapse thereafter.

I remember ~5 years ago driving out in the middle of nowhere for work once.  Within the span of a half hour, I went from over half a tank of gas to getting a light indicating I had less than one gallon left.  A lot of these really small rural towns don't have a gas station.  Fortunately there was a tiny ass gas station a few miles away.  If it was any further than that, I would have definitely been stranded.  This area had no cell coverage too so I couldn't call anyone if I ran out of gas.

Now I habitually fill the gas tank at half a tank, even though my current car's fuel gauge appears to be working just fine.

Just spent 20 minutes entering password/email combinations under both my PSN accounts for the Amazon Video app on PS3, to no avail.

Logging in with my US or JP account, the app was clearly showing only US content. Amazon Japan has been running ads for their new-to-Japan service, so I was anxious to give it a try... but it hasn't even launched yet. The service begins "at the end of September," :doge and the ways it can be viewed apparently do not include the PS3 app.

More likely they just haven't updated the app yet.

actually maybe that doesn't apply. You know how you meet someone, both of you are rather clear that you aren't looking for a relationship, so instead you just have fun/chill/whatever. Nothing serious. And then the other person starts catching feelings and slowly starts switching up the agreement. I don't want to meet your family.

Was my birthday a couple days ago. (Too late for you to wish me it now. :jawalrus)

Hate my birthday and prefer not to celebrate it, but if you want to recognize it I'm not going to be ungrateful. But only if you recognize it on my birthday. (I'd rather get a text the day of than a party days later when it's convenient.)

This year I thought I'd had my best birthday since my seventeenth. The only two people on the planet who could possibly lay claim to knowing me in a meaningful way were the only ones to wish me a happy birthday. My brother from another mother even surprised me with a viewing of 22 Jump Street.

Then one of my gal pals leaves a birthday card days later (strike 1) in my public inbox (strike 2) saying that we need to do something when she's free in the future (foul ball strike 2) which forces a bunch of people in the office that desk is at to fall over themselves trying to not look like they forgot about Dre culminating in an awkward birthday lunch next week (strike 3).

Now I have to be a jerkwad and tell my gal pal explicitly that it's either day of or not at all in the future and that she alone shat up a perfectly good birthday. I also have to pick my own fucking restaurant for my shamefully late "birthday" lunch. Good fucking grief, fuck everything.

Watching the game doesn't sound bad though.

It's the principle though, and what's left unsaid. Yea I'd imagine her siblings aren't bad, but this is the beginning of a process. The next step would inevitably be her siblings mentioning me to their parents, her parents asking her about me, and then the second to last stage: off handed comments about how her mom "asked about you today" or "said she wanted to meet you."

To me skipping the days says, "Sorry, your existence just wasn't convenient." That's fine, I know I am often inconvenient. What's not fine is telegraphing that and then trying to come at me with ceremony afterwards. :pacspit

Plus to be cynical, you get nothing out of a text except maybe the abstract satisfaction of brightening my day. If you take me out to power drink you get to power drink and see me make a complete jackass out of myself while power drinking. :quark

There's a lot of bad blood when it comes to my birthday. (I shat up Esch's last birthday thread about it if you're dying to know more.) If you know me you know that and act accordingly. I'm not going to feel guilty about asking less (!!!) of people.

It's raining outside, and I can hear the wind blow alongside the rustling of trees. The perfect backdrop for a story to be told. So tell us, Kara, what is the bad blood involved with your birthday.

I'll tell you why I dislike birthdays. When I was a kid, birthdays were three day long events. On the actual birth day you could expect a nice dinner and possibly a present. The next day would be a movie day where you could pick a film from Blockbuster. The third day might give you the opportunity to go to your favorite store; I loved going to the hobby store or comic shop so those were my choices.

I have three brothers so this process got exhausting after awhile. I started to get annoyed that the birthday kid wouldn't have to do any chores for a week, meaning the rest of us had to do his chores. I tried to shift this by making sure to do my chores during my birthday week but my brothers didn't return the favor on their birthdays. Eventually I stopped claiming any birthday perks. So the process just kept getting more annoying until I started hating birthdays. To this day I don't do anything special on mine.

Post by: Kara on September 19, 2015, 04:32:14 AM
*puffs on cigar and sips cognac* The bad blood... Ultimately it stems from two things.

One, whether by circumstance or design, I consistently have had my birthday hit by some sort of calamity. I can count the pleasant ones comfortably on a hand. In addition to this, I never got "make up" ceremonies or what have you. Not even a ":idont That's life, kid."

My favorite instance of this was the year I went to this dorky flight sim thing with pops. For someone who grew up in an aerospace background and was too young to know it was stupid it was amazing. We get there. We go through the bullshit basic training stuff. We fly a single sortie. Then we get a call from home. My only grandparent, who by this time was well on the way to buying the farm, has gone and literally shat up the day by shitting all over themselves and the house. (Live to old age brehs.) Mom being mom doesn't just deal with the situation like a functioning adult but instead calls the troops home early. There's never a make up trip to that place. No apology for circumstances beyond anyone's control. Just a very subdued cake and presents that evening because all the adults have been ripping into one another for hours while working with shit.

Two, I was always held to a very high (impossibility high, in retrospect and in talk therapy) standard for other people's birthdays that was never even remotely reciprocated. (e.g. "Mom or dad, what would you like for your birthday?" "I shouldn't have to tell you what to get me." "I'm five.") This wasn't all bad, if I care about you I can get you the best damn gift possible because of it. I start keeping my eyes peeled for things months out. It's also given me horribly unrealistic expectations of reciprocity. I have a lot of things to regret when it came to the one who got away, but how I handled our last Valentine's Day in this regard will probably sting to my dying breath because of how fucking idiotic I was.

As an example, one year we threw a semi-surprise birthday party for my parent who is Polish and since at this point I was the third adult in a two parent household I did a lot of the organization. Now this parent always insists we sing "Sto Lat" (a Polish analogue to "Happy Birthday") at everyone's birthday because my name is apparently Mirosław instead of Karakand. At the party it eventually comes time for cake and song. After "Happy Birthday" everyone moves to start serving cake and the parental unit makes a scene about "Sto Lat." Out of  60-70 people 5 of us know the lyrics to the song and only one of us isn't family. I'm not subjecting the guests to that kind of awkwardness and refuse to be the band leader. None of the other Final Five will do so either (#sosayweall) and my parent doesn't get their way. Forever since that sequence of events I have been known as the one who ruined the party that I planned and executed where everyone else had a good time.

My 6th was cake with extended family. My 7th was shortly after a move, so I had neither friends nor family to celebrate with. It was just me and my mom. Hug, present, maybe cake? I don't remember. That's how it's been from then on. Me not wanting to be the centre of attention (feelings of inadequacy) going forward was a big reason as well. Be poor and have no close friends, brehs.

Well that puts my petty birthday gripes in perspective, Kara.

I only know three people who are super serious about their birthday, to the point that missing their birthday=end of friendship. All three are women. I send a card or Facebook comment and hide.

My parents were never focused on their birthdays. The only issue I remember was that if you didn't tell my dad happy birthday immediately, my mom would accuse you of being ungrateful/threaten reprisal of some kind ("he doesn't have to bring food home you know..."). On many occasions I was confronted over this subject and had to say hold on, it's 9AM and he's at work plus doesn't have a cellphone, how can I wish him happy birthday right now?

So, all that accounting work my boss dumped on me is basically done, and I'm 99% sure that he needs the reports from it for a meeting tomorrow.

HOWEVER. This guy, I love him to death, I mean he employs me and I'm borderline unemployable, but his communication skills are THE WORST. I asked him multiple times last week for a SPECIFIC TIME this had to be done by, and he never gave me a straight answer. I ran into a snag on Saturday that I was worried would set me back, so I emailed AND texted him asking again for a specific time this was needed for, and he never replied. I almost want to not bother generating the reports and emailing them to him just to have him freak out about it so I can say, and point him to various emails, chat logs, and text messages just to show him THAT HE NEVER ANSWERED ME.

But, fuck it. Better just to be done with it I guess.

Was woken up with a phone call asking me to come in because the manager called out again.  To be fair she is heavily pregnant so I'm not blaming her.  I pretty much demanded that I get another day off to make up for this.  I need some fucking time off.   :'(

So does it make sense to encourage your friend to break up with his gf if that sounds well... Sane? Because that's what I did and I've unlocked a world of drama for it.

My friend never has anything positive to say about her. I mean I've never heard anything good about her. It's just about how crazy she is. She doesn't want him talking to any other girls, had to delete every girl off his Facebook, is not really supposed to be talking to anyone else, can't even talk to people in online games, has to talk to her everyday to check in and so on. He also seems to have to pay for her apartment and other things. When they back to Chicago he has to pay for her ticket. Anytime an argument happens she threatens to kill herself.

She sounds terrible and even his own mother thinks she's controlling and terrible.

Then again I don't know anything about relationships and this is only his side. Yet it's not quite a year old, shouldn't this be the lovey Dovey phase. If it's already stressful shouldn't you get out?

That's what I think and I've suggested it many times. Dude is basicly my brother so I care but at the same time I know he's pussy whipped. He'll stay in a relationship for the sake of it, to feel basicly the idea that anyone cares for him. Which is a bad combination with someone who may be overly dependent.

Anyway, I guess he actually tried to pull the trigger and mentioned me.

Big mistake.

As now I've gotten endless messages from this girl. How I'm terrible for giving that advice, how I'm hurting her, and so on. I mean she's been writing me research papers on how I'm a monster.

I don't think I did anything terrible. About the douchyiest thing I said is that I don't want to ever meet her and I don't after she's gone off on me.

So I know they will get back together and come back to Chicago and well I really don't ever want to interact with this person.

Whole thing has me annoyed.

Got a new job but their health insurance is terrible ($1050/month with a $500 deductible and 80% coinsurance.) Went on healthcare.gov and the average bronze and silver plans have $12,000 and $11,000 deductibles. Average gold plan at $600/month has a $5,000 deductible.

I haven't made it yet, brahs. My company insurance plan would be approaching 20% of our income and I've got the debts to pay off. The Obamacare plans are such bad deals they just don't make any sense.

My wife technically has coverage as a member of the Cherokee Nation and I technically have coverage under the VA but both of those are extremely cumbersome to use and their coverage isn't great to begin with.

Well the thing to keep in mind with deductibles is that you don't pay against them with a lot of routine care on metallic plans. Scheduled doctor visits and prescriptions are copay as long as the provider is in network and the medications are covered on my plan, for example.

Not knowing anything about your wife's or your health, a silver plan might be a decent fit for you. Coverage isn't great but it's designed to balance regular costs and extraordinary costs with its pricing structure.

Congratulations on your new job, BTW.

If I remember correctly, the ACA returns any out of pocket costs above 10% of your total income via a tax break when you file. Can anyone expand on this?

Post by: I'm a Puppy! on October 08, 2015, 03:08:24 PM
Unless it's something new there's an already existing tax break that says if you spend > some ungodly amount on healthcare (NOT premiums/deductibles) you get a write off.
Title: Re: Struggle Thread mk II - No one likes us, we don't care
Post by: Kara on October 08, 2015, 03:08:57 PM
You either receive the credit during the year on a monthly basis or you take it at the end of the year when you file your tax return. There's a schedule on the return that reconciles your income, cost paid, and cost that should have been paid that flows to pages 1 and 2 of your 1040.

If you take the credit monthly you don't have to pay it back dollar for dollar if you underestimated your income for the year, but generally it's advisable to revisit your estimate after significant changes in income.

IIRC the deductibles do not apply to preventive care. As long as you're just getting physicals, xrays, etc you'd be good.

I've been in a similar situation since my parents started getting divorced last Spring and I had to step in to pay my mother's bills. The thing I would suggest is to work out with your parents exactly how much help they need and for how long you're going to be stuck there. He got into the debt so he had to be prepared to get out of it. Also try to still be social. I either cut off or lost touch with nearly all my friends since then and not having a sounding board for your problems is hard.

I firmly believe I'd welcome back a prodigal friend with open arms so long as what he did wasn't completely unforgivable. Over the last few years I've learned that I'm a rarity in that regard.

Between some high end audio gear, a Nebula 4000 handheld gimbal, and a Nexus 5X, I've spent $1,692 this week.

Month is gonna be tight. Thankfully I've been saving up for the past couple months for some of this stuff.

This, to me, is the opposite of struggle.

It's not bad but it's just...exhausting. Like I feel fatigue in its presence and don't even feel like finishing it.

Also- Wrath, I've been in a similar situation. Take it from me- help your family out, but set some guidelines and deadlines. "I'm going to be here for 2 years (or whatever it is) to help you out, but after that you need to fix your own fucking shit."

Obviously I don't know all the particulars of your situation but if you keep staying indefinitely your feelings of frustration with your father are just going to get worse. That I do know.

Yeah. Like you and a lot of people, I had and have to be present quite a bit for my mother in the last 10 years or so. More of a time and emotional burden than money really, but the frustration do build up quite a bit especially since I'm pretty certain she won't ever really fix certain things. Do set up a deadline and beyond that consider yourself free to move abroad for instance. Walking away from a family responsibility is hard but you also have one for yourself.

Studies, including that of an ether addict in 2003, have shown that ether causes dependence; however, the only symptom observed was a will to consume more ether. No withdrawal symptoms were prevalent.

Not really much of a story to it.

 One time last summer we were both hanging out in a group of co-workers, drinking. After I made a funny comment he said something along the lines of "he's such a funny guy, I just wanna make out with him sometimes!" to the whole group and I just assumed it was just a sorta creepy joke for my own sake but I did kinda get that vibe from him a few times. Another night soon after I go to his apartment with him after the bar to smoke some weed, and he starts begging me to come to bed and make out / cuddle with him and I peace the fuck out and just never mention it again since I have to continue working with the dude.  :kobeyuck

Anyways, last night it happened again, but at least this time it was outside and not where I was trapped in a tiny apartment. Now I gotta see the guy again today and pretend it never happened.  :snoop I don't even know if he's gay, he's just a super lonely dude looking for affection in any form. Honestly though, even if I was into dudes I don't think I'd go for it. Not that cute, sorry. :larry

Had a problem with anxiety/panic the past week, it's pretty much straight up hell-garbage, brehs. Couldn't relax, couldn't rest, my blood pressure was through the roof. I lost two whole nights to just feeling like I was gonna die. But I am feeling somewhat better today and I'm supposed to see a doctor soon. A lot of it just convincing myself that it's all in my head, though, and learning to calm down instead of getting so worked up.

Not sure what I'll do [or get] just yet. I haven't had any problems with anxiety on this level before, so it's possible that it's just associated with being overly worried about the other health problem I've been dealing with lately, so it may just naturally pass once everything gets settled down again. For now I'll try to get through it without relying on medication.

Started on the project of fixing up my S2000 as I've left all the cosmetic damage alone for years since it didn't effect the driving and shit is expensive and I had a gf.  Just got the soft-top replaced since it had major tears I'd been dealing with patching/taping/sewing for 4 years since it's a design defect in all S2000 models that the top frame is too sharp at a couple of points and tears the soft top.  It's nice having a fixed soft top since the tears would always make the car noisy on the freeway to the point where you can't hear quieter music.  Patching it would work, but then you couldn't put the top down because it'd tear it back up again so it was just annoying all over. 

Next up is fixing a small dent in the back and paint damage from a scrapping a wall incident while doing a 9 point u-turn in a small enclosed space 4 years ago.

Then gotta replace the leather on both seats as it's torn in the body of the main seat and bottom of the passenger seat.

After all that it should look good as new.  Love driving and love the car, plan on keeping it forever and retiring it to a weekend car after about 10 years/110k miles.  Will get a boring electric car with good gas mileage in 4 years or so for local driving.

My dollar store adventures continued today :beli

Walked in and noticed 8 people were in line, and only one cash register was open. Typical dollar store fuckery. There was a black chick two people ahead of me, talking very casually and loudly into her phone which was on FaceTime for some reason. Real skinny, obvious long/curly black weave, skinny jeans, valley girl accent. There was a 40something yo black guy ahead of her who seemed drunk or buzzed, and he kept staring at her, then shaking his head when she seemingly didn't make eye contact with him. First time I thought it was odd, but he did this about three or four times and it just became uncomfortable as fuck. Obviously women deal with a lot of stares on a daily/hourly basis but I gotta think there's a difference between the casual once-over glance and nonstop continual staring.

After he paid for his shit he walked behind her/looked at her ass. She turned around, finally giving him attention. Then he said "I'm just throwing this away baby" and threw his receipt in a trash can. He smiled at her again and walked out.

I had osseous/flap surgery with bone grafts. I'm mainly worried that the infection will eat into the new bone grafts that they put in.

Finally got to see a doctor about my anxiety/panic attacks after going through the roughest week of my entire life. He was a pretty good doctor and listened to me and helped work through some stuff, ended up getting prescriptions for clonazepam and paroxetin. I've already started to feel significantly better with just the first dose, so maybe this should have gone in the triumph thread instead.

Made the mistake of going to Taco Bell at the same time as all the breeders. Now that we're getting booze Bells, can we get ones where you can't order more than five items each?
Just order margarita smoothies for their kids and then let nature take its course.

You cacs always getting a breh to bump. Goddamnit.

I've been there.

As you get older, people drift apart, especially as they get married and have children.  People just don't have the time to maintain as many friendships as they used to as their real life responsibilities grow.  I wouldn't take it personally because it (likely) isn't maliciously intentional.

This goddamn pills and heroin bullshit these kids are doing now is beyond my capability to understand. We just had like 10 kids between the ages of 16-19 get arrested for robbing a lot of houses out my way.

She seems to be okay. My mom is a pretty tough lady so I think she will be okay. The family will probably make sure she puts in a security system. The jackasses got in because there is a side entrance to her house that she never uses that she thought was locked but it wasn't. So it was just unlucky that they tried that door and found it unlocked.

One other funny side note. The police arrested the people that bought her TV from the criminals for receiving stolen goods.

http://www.wilsontimes.com/News/Feature/Story/38518933---FIGHT-FOR-OUR-KIDS

Quote
"Now it’s at an all-time high across the nation, not just here but everywhere,” Weatherford said. "There are so many people out there dealing with this stuff. They are pretty open about it.”

In fact, the CDC says heroin use is at epidemic levels and young people 18 to 25 are falling prey. Between 2002 and 2013 nationally, the rate of heroin-related overdose deaths nearly quadrupled, and more than 8,200 people died in 2013.

Heroin has evolved to the point where dealers label their batch in pride with names such as Call of Duty.

"That’s indicative to the perception of harm or disapproval being very low right now,” said Erin Day, director of the Wilson County Substance Abuse Coalition. "We need to increase the perception of risk, harm, because it’s real. That’s an opportunity for our community.”

But please, by all means tell me why I'm wrong here, idiot....

It is a pretty recent thing with rural white people getting into heroin after getting hooked on oxycontin but I'm not sure what you're talking about is super directly relevant here. Although Florida is kind of the center of the prescription painkiller problem.

'Heroin Chic' became a thing in the early 90's for a reason. In NYC, the emergency room cases more than doubled in 4 years. As they discuss in this link (http://www.drugpolicy.org/docUploads/meth340.pdf) , street heroin became more pure and people could sniff it (instead of injecting). The CDC (and other drug awareness groups)  only focused on people that were injecting because of the AIDS crisis.

So yea, it was virtually non-existent in suburban/rural areas, but was pretty common in metropolitan areas.  'Disco Bloodbath' is a pretty good account of the drug scene of the time.  Marc Maron (WTF podcast) often shares stories about the changes that happened in NYC and San Francisco (while he lived there) during this time.

Opiates are a dirty secret in the midwest.  Once states started limiting how much pseudoephedrine you could buy at once, the era of bathtub meth was over.  Then it was opiates like oxycodone and the like because chances are that people knew other people who were prescribed opiates due to pain (whether it be related to an injury or chronic pain).  Except once people couldn't afford oxycontin, they started shooting up heroin and fentanyl because it was a cheaper high.

It's been going on for almost a decade now but nobody is really talking about it much because it's the rural areas and lol flyover country amirite?

Jodie Layne is a sex educator by day and a writer also by day. Her hobbies include re-considering an educational career and creating a B.A. in Kanye Studies, wishing there was a ShondaCon, trying to make the perfect "Meg Ryan Rom Com Feels" playlist, and preparing the imminent arrival of her certain anxiety-fueled demise.

You should get some credit cards Andy for this sort of situation. Well I mean the ideal way to use them is to always use like 50% of the limit and then pay it off completely every month to build credit as much as possible but that does require decent planning of your in/outflows.

If you do end up with a money crisis in the near future then you could ask the hospital to forgive whatever is left and they often do that sort of thing as part of their charity spending. Does it look like they're able to fix your pooper?

Yeah, looks like everything's okay in terms of my health. And I plan on going to the hospital with my tax returns to show them how poor I am and see if they can get me on some kind of payment plan at least, because a lump sum payout of more than 3 big ones just isn't going to happen.

I know something has gone terribly wrong because I'm giving paternal advice but when you're rich a credit card is even more important as it's part of your "I'm actually rich" identification to other rich people, upwardly ambitious people who aren't rich and probably never will be because they're ambitious instead of smart or useful, and the brave men and women of the servile class. Losing your American Express black card is practically the modern day equivalent of being scourged.

Also, not to sound like a parental unit, but if your household economics are as such that you find yourself unable to afford food or absorb emergency costs, it's probably a good opportunity to step back and evaluate your lifestyle and your ability to support that lifestyle. Pets aren't children where you can get some of that sweet government assistance and having access to short-term credit is super important  (if only to cushion you from emergencies).

WTF signs for a package that's not meant for them/their address though? You would think that within a few hours you would notice the mistake and now there's an electronic record leading back to you.

My boss's boss was fired today. CISO. I learned that "C class" employees can only be fired by the CEO. Is it a respect thing? Sounds kind of mafia-ish. Feel bad. I'm sure they were blind sided. :fbm

It just goes to show that no matter how secure you think you are in your job, if you piss off the wrong person you are gone. :camby

So I work in a small, 6 man operation that's part of a giant global corporation. One of my co-workers is breaking policy by having people come in fairly often to give him money or parts as a part of a machining business he runs on the side. Everyone else in office is turning a blind eye to it. I worry about retribution, but I'm considering saying something to my direct supervisor or to the person individually. Thoughts?

The worst is when a boss of a boss of a boss finds out you have a (legit) workplace issue. But you might find yourself getting a raise out of it or maybe fired if someone owes them or something maybe. I'm assuming you're a good employee.

I'd just be honest to the guy that you want to keep workplace about the work if he ever gets distracted by his other business. And yes Kara, that's maybe the more pussy way of dealing with it but it's safer.

Everything turned out okay, the problem that the ER thought I had wasn't present at all. Lot of wasted money over what amounted to a random infection, but whatever, at least I've got some closure on this whole mess.

Doesn't change the appearance. Mine was to help with breathing due to a deviated septum starting to block an airway and producing more mucus that would block it further. It swelled up for a little and started to ease back down to day.

Shouldn't be too worried, really. It's the bleeding and past the first night that's the rough part.

This was brought on by the church's new policy of excluding children of gay parents to be baptized (and thereby interact in any meaningful way) into the church.
And also putting being married to someone of the same sex on the hard list of apostasy which in essence makes worse than rape, sexual abuse, and in cases, murder.

LDS priorities every bit as screwed up as they've ever been. Sorry, Puppy. It's nice that your brethren get to be judgmental and all, so they can just ignore that part of the "only God can judge" thing. I'm godless and free to judge though, so congratulations to all of LDS on following a religion created by a known con artist who convinced followers that he had magic glasses. Mormons at least beat Scientologists to the punch by more than a century; the early bird gets dibs on the magic underwear, I guess.

Puppy, I've been reading the Mormon thread over on GAF. Sounds like the older of my two younger brothers is having his "go away from the church" crisis. I'm betting as soon as he is able to move out of my parents house he will go full on ditch the church mode.

Meanwhile my youngest brother got engaged to some girl he met through church activities and has known less than a year. And she currently lives in a completely different state (while finishing her degree). She tagged my bro in a post on FB saying how excited she was to get to marry her best friend. It seems weird to me that she considers someone she's known less than a year to be her best friend. I guess I'm just feel weird because my last long term relationship I lived with the girl for like 2 years, survived being temporarily homeless, survived a 17 hour car trip and yet still ended up having it not work out and he's marry a girl he doesn't even see daily.

I also had to tell him that if I do manage to make it up for the wedding I can't go to the actual wedding because I'm totally not temple eligible at this time (nor will I likely ever be again).

I grew up in a super religious Muslim community and no one from there is open about not being religious or being not hetero (to my knowledge). Even talking to people who are like fourth-hand acquaintances, they are very surprised when I say something that sounds atheisty but I've learned from that that there's no gentle way to broach the subject of issues in organized religion.

Also never ever argue religion with anyone who is devoutly religious or irreligious unless you can quote the scripture you need for your argument. And I assume in Mormonism like other religions, there's a whole hierarchy in contradictory scriptures/interpretations.

And she currently lives in a completely different state (while finishing her degree). She tagged my bro in a post on FB saying how excited she was to get to marry her best friend. It seems weird to me that she considers someone she's known less than a year to be her best friend. I guess I'm just feel weird because my last long term relationship I lived with the girl for like 2 years, survived being temporarily homeless, survived a 17 hour car trip and yet still ended up having it not work out and he's marry a girl he doesn't even see daily.

I also had to tell him that if I do manage to make it up for the wedding I can't go to the actual wedding because I'm totally not temple eligible at this time (nor will I likely ever be again).
I'd say something about "LOLZ < 1 year" but honestly I've met too many indians that have great marriages that met their spouse a week before they got married (of course they were arranged) to each their own I guess.

But it does suck about not being able to attend the wedding. Remember, the church is doing it because they love you and want you to be close to your family.

I voluntarily excuse myself from attending as many religious events as possible and it's not too bad. As long as you bring a thoughtful gift to the after-event no one gives you shit for missing the religious bit and you can be there for whomever you care about without being made to feel :holeup by sitting in on a religious ceremony.

If your brother's marriage ever went south his soon to be waifu wouldn't talk to him again (barring kid crap) while you and your ex have had a post-relationship relationship because you had something more substantial. God hates us all.

It is nice having someone to talk USC football with!

Ha, yeah I remember back in HS a friend of mine's dad got remarried and her friends didn't understand why they couldn't go to the wedding and apparently his new wife's family had a lot of issues with it. My brother was fine when I told him I couldn't go the wedding, he just wanted me to be up there for the reception and to meet his bride. If I was someone with more work stability I'd have booked a plane ticket but right now I can't commit to something multiple months out.

Glad I don't have to deal with religion anymore. I've also somehow avoided awkward conversations on my newfound apathy, or agnosticism or whatever you want to call it. I know plenty of people who would look down on me if they knew I wasn't religious anymore; not my friends, but moreso family friends (ie my parents' peers and friends, and some family members). Really the only time the subject is breached is when I run into one of my mom's female friends who wants me to meet her "god fearing, good cook" daughter. Nah I'm good.  :doge

Two of my brothers are dating right now, and my mom doesn't like either of their girlfriends. Both of those particular chicks are more successful than my ladyfriend. At the end of the day my ladyfriend is pursuing school/a career so I don't see why anyone would look down on her...but I know my mom would. Mix in her crass sense of humor, drinking regimen, distaste for religion, music taste or lack thereof, etc...yea  :doge

This morning, around 7AM I received a call from a number I didn't recognize. Answered and heard a deep voice utter my name. Turns out it was a former basketball teammate of mine from junior and varsity high school. I tried to be cordial during the following "hey how have you been" phase of the convo but eventually asked how did you get my number (we hadn't spoken in a decade until today). He said he runs into my dad at the grocery store all the time and got my number from him. Also mentioned my dad gave him the numbers of all my brothers, plus told him where I live.
:kobeyuck

He then proceeded to congratulate me on having a job lol. At that point I remembered the casual racism he displayed back in HS but I let it slide, assuming he didn't mean it like that. And then the hook:

"Well I just wanted to tell you what I'm doing, and what you could be doing. I work at Primerica, have you heard of us?"

:beli

Primerica is basically a pyramid scheme that sells overpriced insurance to poor people. When I just got out of college I remember a guy from Primerica confronting me at a store and basically begging me to attend a seminar of theirs. Based on the conversation I got the impression he targeted me since I'm black and "well spoken." From what I understand Primerica is largely a white organization here but has tried to reel in black customers, and what better way than with black representatives...

Anyway he was going on and on about how amazing the company is, how it has opened his horizons etc etc. He wanted me to come to a seminar today at 9AM lol. Three hour seminar. I've heard the company is really pushy during these events and tries to get people signed up before they leave. I told him I probably couldn't come because I have some work to do and he was like "come on you aren't doing anything today, stop being lazy lol"
:beli

Dude was also like "I know you work in business so this is up your alley. You could do it on the side but honestly I doubt you'll want to return to your regular job after speaking with us!"

:beli

I wanted to ask what are the salary and benefits like and get ready to passive aggressively chuckle at his response, but I was too tired to troll so I said I'll come to a seminar on another day. I just want to see this fuckery with my own eyes.

An update on Primerica Guy  :doge

Got off work a bit early today, checked my phone, and saw that I missed a call from Primerica Guy. I told myself I wasn't going to call him back since I had shit to do...but I pussied out and returned the call. What followed was a 40 minute battle of passive aggressiveness on both our parts. I must say I was kinda impressed.

I started out by telling him I looked more into the company, found out they were similar to Amway, and compared it to a pyramid scheme. Similar to a debate in congress, each of us basically would go 3-5 minutes before pausing to allow the opposition to speak. He argued Primerica wasn't a pyramid scheme because "pyramid schemes are illegal, yet Primerica is an active business so clearly it's not a pyramid scheme  :doge "

He kept going on and on about how such and such makes 100k or 500k or a million dollars a year. I told him that a State Farm insurance employee can make 30k a year, whereas there is no guaranteed income for the vast majority of Primerica workers. "Bububu someone at State Farm can't go from 30k to 500k in a year."
:mindblown

I didn't drop the true ether until around the 30 minute mark brehs.

Primerica Guy:  :money I worked at Mr. Pizza doing all types of work, but no matter how hard I worked my pay was the same. I also worked in a clerical job and had the same results. Whereas at Primerica the harder I work the more I can earn

Me: (http://i.imgur.com/szZIpvv.png) Would you say that you're making more money now than you were while working at Mr. Pizza or the clerical job?

Primerica Guy: ..... :brazilcry No...but...well,  :holeup  but I can say that the only reason I'm not making more is because I haven't truly dedicated myself enough to it.

Me: (http://i.imgur.com/fz4TEPX.png)

Note, during these two calls he has told me he gets up at 8AM to work this job multiple days a week, has a team that relies on him, AND no longer has free time. If that type of dedication can't get you more money than Mr. Pizza, well I don't know what else to tell you doge  :doge

His final retort:

 :hitler "Well I can't force you to be passionate about something. But when I explained this to your dad he was very interested, and he's an honorable man so why would he be receptive to anything that could harm you"

 :lol :lol :lol

I spoke with my dad earlier today and he straight up told me he didn't know much about Primerica, he just assumed it was legit since Primerica Guy was a homeschooler/Christian. :dead

Ultimately I just told the guy look, my dad didn't know anything about your company and tbh most people don't know anything about finances or insurance so yea. I ended it shortly thereafter, but he mentioned he wanted to "hang out" with me at some point. Meh.

Honestly since I know him I didn't want to be rude, and I had planned on waiting for the perfect moment to ether him with the income question. It was a slow burn, the Rosemary's Baby of financial discussions. I think I stuck the landing so
::yeshrug

Dude was all over the place by the end, going so far as to compare the company to his faith in terms of importance, and connect them in terms of how he can lower the divorce rate by helping couples with financial situations that often ruin marriages. Welp.

Ultimately if your biggest personal success story is making $300 one time ("which is like a week's paycheck at certain jobs") you're fucked. And if you can't see that you lost. Dude has ten siblings so I know he has tried to sell them all on this, plus all his church members. And honestly I think he knows this is a hustle on some level. A lot of MLM guys seem to have a resentment for people who aren't affiliated with their scam of choice, and seem to enjoy the cutthroat nature of sales/building a team of people who kick shit up to you. That bothers me and I definitely won't be hanging with him. Reminds me way too much of my past and the people I was around: ie Christians who relished denigrating college education.

I had to deal with an angry client who had requested some credits (that were already issued, she just needed the references) from her sales person who basically told the client it wasn't her job since the credits were issued by the previous salesperson (a simple email to me would suffice).  The client has since stopped ordering so I had to let the salesperson go (the worst part it's a commission gig, so a simple email cost her tons in commission and her job).  Fucking kids man.

I don't do much coding except for when I'm reviewing/correcting what the developer has produced based upon my highly detailed mockups.

Creating high fidelity mockups in Photoshop of each webpage (for desktop, tablet, and phone screens) is my job.

Just saw the part where he cracked his tooth. That happened to me once when I cracked my tooth without dental insurance in college  so I had to wait a month until the following term to add it to my college health insurance plan.

Then I maxed out the yearly payout getting the dentist visits/root canal to save the tooth. The dentists concluded the reason I wasn't in agonizing pain was the nerve was totally dead so that was lucky and might be the same situation Arvie is in.

Arvie go to a dentist. I nearly lost that tooth.

So about two years ago my parents were having trouble making their internet payments, so I decided to help them out. I switched the account over to me in order to pay the bill they accrued from missing some months, but the bills were still delivered in the mail to their address. The expectation I had was that they'd still pay things after I paid what they owed at the time to dig them out of the hole. The bill isn't very large ($36), but it adds up when you don't pay it (surprise.)

Earlier this year we discovered (I discovered) there was a $400 debit on the account in a fairly strongly worded letter filled with lots of scary words. I was annoyed, but paid it and I switched it over so that I would be notified by email when a new bill was due and I'd just pay it myself.

Over the weekend I decided to check my CreditKarma account I setup ages ago but never did anything with, and was pretty shocked to see it's the absolute pits (we'll say sub-600.) I checked, and there's 10 marks against me for the unpaid bills from a year ago.

I can't be mad because my parents missing those bills wasn't deliberate negligence towards me, since other things take priority over the internet and they're struggling to make their mortgage and electric bills every month. But I'm pissed and depressed that this could potentially screw me over credit-wise for ten years or more.

The upside is that those marks are the only things affecting my score at all (I have no loans, debt, etc.), so there's nowhere to go but up, but it's going to require my constant attention and vigilance. I've applied for the card Kara recommended some weeks back (CapitalOne Secured), and surprise surprise, the initial deposit is the maximum it can be.

$200 deposit for $200 line of credit. 24.9% APR. And I won't even get it until February.

Yup, I'm fucked.

That sucks man. When you are young, the credit card companies look for any reason to put you in the high risk category. It took me much of my twenties to improve my credit after I had an unpaid electric bill when I was 21 (I moved out, but still got charged for the next month).

Well, the bill accrued late charges and was turned over to a collections agency (because I had moved so many times, they were unable to locate me). So at that point, it went on my credit record and there was nothing I could do to contest/reverse it.

If it's one delinquency type of thing, you can bounce back from that pretty quickly. That happened to me once when I dropped nearly a hundred points from the mid-700s to like 630 or so because I got doublecharged on a dental bill. And it took about a year to get back to where I was. This is maybe different since it's multiple bills from the same company but don't worry too much about it and just set everything on autopay. Ultimately a high credit score is only important for loans and you're probably years away from buying property.

Black marks on the standard credit history for a maximum of seven years. That's unless things of changed from 10 years ago, which they may have. But I had a big mistake with a starter credit card in college, and everything go away after seven years.

Aren't the credit agencies supposed to drop erroneous black marks if you challenge them?

Wait what? Do you mean dropping the bullshit charge for services not rendered or completely removing the late payments from the record? If the latter, then I got to make a phone call.

I'd rather have them lowball me and be pleasantly surprised than the opposite, though.

The seven years thing is encouraging though. At least there's a light at the end of this.

Also, Andrex, you'll be fine. Most 18 year olds don't have good credit. I got my first credit card in my freshman year of college and used it really stupidly. My score was in the 500s for awhile, but I got it up to 700+ by my mid-20s.

I'm 24 and thus in my mid-20s. :brazilcry

I spent my entire teens there and I don't miss it based on the memories there but I am worried now about the future as now my mother, grandmother, and 8 year old brother are moving in with me into an apartment for 6 months until hopefully my mother is settled and can go back into the workforce. I've been telling them to get divorced for over 4 years but seeing every week for the last 10 months how manipulative and petty they can be just makes me afraid of not having a relationship that is the opposite of theirs. Not because I'm a super rightous person but because of pride.

For both Wrath and Walrus, don't ever feel bad about venting in a post (especially in a thread dedicated to it.) What you're actually doing is piling more guilt onto yourselves when it's unnecessary. So please, don't ever write "sorry for this post" about shit like this. I wouldn't say I enjoy reading it, but I'm definitely interested in your mental health and being aware of it so I can possibly offer some advice.

For Wrath, I would try not feeling guilty about hanging out with your friend. You can't force someone to do something they don't want to do. If you want to assuage some guilt, offer to help her out with stuff. You'll still get to hang out with her but it'll be a productive time. I would also say to talk to someone IRL about your issues, whether it's this friend or someone else (my advice would be a therapist, but I know that might not be feasible.)

Finally, find or return to a hobby (one that isn't purely consuming media.) It'll let you feel like you're improving yourself and making headway in the world in some small way. Also, exercise. The endorphins released when working out combat depression, and long-term your body image will improve which will also make you feel better and more confident overall.

That's about all I can offer based on your post. Trying to post actionable things here and not give into platitudes, hope this helps.

Uncut #4 (better known as China White) doesn't make you itch, friend. Most people never see real #4 period, much less 90%+ like this. 20-25 mg will easily kill a 300 pound man with no tolerance. I also don't shoot it, I smoke it.


Hydrocortisone cream started working, so I put the #4 back up.

Counting yesterday, I have smoked it a grand total of 5 days in the past 7 years. Yesterday was the first time in 2 years. It'll be years before I smoke it again, if ever. I need no intervention for that.

And for those of you who say it should be zero days in 7 years; Have you ever been hit by a car? Have you ever been stabbed in the back (literally)? Have you ever taken a beating with a metal baseball bat?

Because I have.

These things hurt alot, and pills do nothing for that level of pain.

Don't worry about me Boreans, only thing thing I'm smoking today (and for the foreseeable future) is weed. :)

FWIW like 80% of people who try heroin don't become addicted and using it for medical purposes is a lot less disconcerting than doing it cuz you just wanna get high, though still disconcerting. A little skeptical that poison ivy in a wound is on par with getting run over/stabbed/bludgeoned, but to each his own I suppose!

Any form of speed is worse when it comes to long term usage, a lot more damage is done to your body by using amphetamines, meth, cocaine or crack. Humans aren't meant for overclocking. My brother died by abusing amphetamines and booze, amphetamines made him schizophrenic due to how he guzzled them down and he became completely different person.

Opiate abuse is more dangerous in the short term, but if you recover from addiction I don't think there's any negative long lasting effects.

Even if someone has a grasp on opiate use though, it will always be 
:kobeyuck

Mainly due to undesirable people I've met that were total junkie fuckups. My other brother became addicted to heroin. Seeing all three of these drugs abused is a fantastic life lesson.

Smoke weed, do hallucinogens, MDMA is good, ecstasy is good if it isn't cut with bad shit.

:dead

Although Nintendo systems do consume way fewer Kw/h compared to any system from MS and Sony.

I haven't turned on the heat more than a couple times this winter, which while milder than normal is still pretty cold. But I don't need to turn the heat on since the place is super toasty, maybe cause I'm on the fifth floor and everyone below me is blasting it or something.

Doesn't really go up that much in the summer when I'm running the A/C a lot, either...

My electric bill isn't bad. It's the gas bill that I hate.

Gas used charge: $30

Gas delivery charge: $50

I'm paying more to rent the pipes in the ground than the actual gas being used.

Heat/AC is included in my electricity bill. :rejoice

Got Comcast down to $120 but that's still too much, gonna cut the cord soon now that I have SlingTV and it works on Chromecast.

(To be fair my rent is kinda crazy.  :gloomy)

Meanwhile I just uncut the cord cause the only way to get fast internet from Comcast here is to get some dumb TV bundle.

I once ate a pound of cookies in a sitting. It not only made me feel like shit, it wasn't very filling either.
