never heard that term before

Squicked out means grossed out more or less. Haircut is something like this:

Sorry for the edgy boi picture but it's the first thing that came to mind. Hairline is similar too, but it's brown not dyed.

Ha, yeah I've been rocking that hairstyle for a long time. For whatever reason I always liked scraping it back.

My diagnosis is ASPD, but that doctor didn't know what he was talking about.

I'm not sure, depression, bipolar depression, autism? I feel like two different people in one body, the shitty one holds back the better one and the better one is content and lacks drive, he tries to make himself incrementally better but the shitty version of myself undoes it all and I have to start over, it's like I'm in this continuous and random switching of personalities, but one is much stronger than the other.

do I qualify for the thread if I've been diagnosed with general anxiety and add since middle school? I also think I was depressed as a kid growing up because I always had a strong empty and lonely feeling even when I had friends. That feeling is so memorable and significant that as soon as it returns I recognize it. I'd like to think it's depression but I've had that feeling on and off since grade 1 and into late highschool. It's like an empty and alone feeling, and I don't really feel anything besides it. Nowadays I'm content being alone in my room for long periods of time on my computer. Discord and games just make me feel irritated so I got rid of them a few weeks back. I've only been browsing since 2012 but I at least feel like I'm apart of some community.

Is alcohol addiction a mental illness?

Diagnosed with bipolar 2, bpd and ptsd. I am currently suicidal and have been depressed for months. I anger and push away the person I love the most. I gave up all my friends and I isolate.

Happy now that I've had a drink. Was going on a downward spiral for a bit there but either smoking or drinking gets rid of that feeling for now. Kind of afraid with how I'm already using it as a crutch I'll be an alcoholic in no time.

I tried to improve my life by looking at mental illness support groups I could join to hopefully make a friend my own age.
>1+ bad thing that happened today
I found out I'm not fucked up enough to have a mental illness support group to attend.
Oh well I guess getting a job is my only escape now. Just have to wait for it to warm up a bit.

that is very true but at least someone is there. even if it's a massive cope i'll take it over feeling this way
why not initiate opening up first, i'm sure everyone is too scared to do it but would appreciate it immensely.

Life is easier with someone else. Sex. Half the rent. Cooking. The list goes on.

We talked about it once or twice, but never brought it up again (in a serious manner, at least).

We all know and acknowledge how fucked most of our lives are. There isn't really much to talk about imo.

Did something happen?


Well, my diagnosis was enough to disqualify me from military service... if that means anything to you, "doctor".

I asked them out a few weeks ago and he told me he wasn't sure and wanted me to wait. so i waited and reminded him of it today and told him "just being your friend hurts me" he went offline so I took a nap and woke up to him gone.

this kind of sucks.

I met up with him and everything. he treated me like we were dating and I fell so hard for him..I really hope I can find someone else. I was friendless for a year both online and irl before I met him.

I plan on going out with a hibatchi grill with carbon monoxide poisoning. Burn some charcoal in a small room or your car. It's painless suicide, you might get a slight headache before you pass out in about 10 minutes.

I... Can't think of any. It was just another bleak, grey, boring day. I felt like a self-aware unself-aware retard tho. Everything I did felt wrong, but I was powerless to stop it. I could hear what people were thinking, see them avoiding eye contact... Tell their fake laughs from their real ones. I just don't want to be around anyone anymore. It's so exhausting. Everything so exhausting. Is it worth it?

Is it a normal BPD thing to randomly unfriend people all the time for no reason and have dissociative outbreaks?

i don't know, but i do know a guy like that.

he's alright, pleasant to talk to when he isn't dissociatively shitposting. just a broken guy, a few screws loose without the right kind of tools to seat them back properly. i miss talking to him, even if at the time i hated his guts.


The worst part isn't the voices, it's the long term memory problems. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

How bad are the memory problems? Long term amnesia?

makes sense, negative symptoms of mental illness are generally far more debilitating than the positive symptoms despite being more "boring"

Just forgetting peoples names, instructions, numbers, etc.

Sometimes stuff comes back to me in a flash like today I got catatonic at work because I remembered I used to self-harm by smashing my head against walls and concrete.

as a child I mean.

Have you ever been to a therapist? They literally just read the DSM.

Wow, that actually hits really close to home. Should I bring that up to a therapist or can i work on it myself

assuming you don't have to pay for it or anything it may be worth checking it out
finding a decent therapist is next to impossible though

Yeah therapists have been shit so far so I dunno, and theyre abhorrently expensive even with my insurance. Ill just google shit, google is almost as good as a therapist these days

I had to be alive.

I, personally, don't believe in suicide as any sort of solution. I have a new job I'm starting and it's already fucking making me lose sleep and draining what little hope for happiness I had left, and I haven't really started the training yet, just finished the orientation. I am trying to see it as a major adversity I need to learn to overcome (I am amazed at how anything that could go wrong continues to go wrong in this situation), but damn does it feel more like a million fucking signs that read "TURN BACK" or "ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER DO YOU READ IT!? DO NOT PROCEED!" But I have a hell of a time just getting any interviews and this place actually hired me [as seasonal].
I am too scared to not display shy normie programming when I get nervous so therapy is worthless because they just see a normie. They're fucking dumb af box-checkers anyways with no real sense of perception or judgement, so I can't stand them. Maybe I'll just go full REEEEE next time I am able to get in to one, and hope it doesn't get me committed. I don't want any more of their drugs because they permanently fucked my brain worse and even they admit they don't know how tf they work.

I've been depressed since my last year of high school. It's been about 4 years now. I got into a uni and dropped out after a year, getting my parrents very mad. Then I went to a uni abroad, which is where I am now. I did foundation from jan 2018 to aug and I'm now on the second semester of the first year. I am failing miserably, I have mostly stopped trying to study. I have nothing to show for the 20 years I have lived so far and when I inevitably drop out I will have to come back home to Russia, because I had to be born with this garbage passport. There are very few qualified therapists back home and depression is often perceived as laziness, nobody takes it seriously. My parents don't seem to understand what it is either; just recently was talking to mom and she told me to get a job and when the first paycheck comes in I won't be depressed anymore. If I have to come back home - it's over for me, anons. The past year I cost my father around 65000 usd and it was a complete waste of time. I doubt I'll ever get a chance like this again, I will have to work minimum wage in a country I despise. I'm planning on hanging myself when I get kicked out of uni, because I refuse to come back home. I'm seeing a therapist, but it doesn't help. I tried suicide hotlines, but those don't do anything for me either. There's no hope or salvation for me, I can't wait to kill myself. This probably doesn't fit here, but I'm sleep deprived and starving; I don't really care. Just wanted to claim my monthly whinepost on 4chin.
