I think I need to see a doctor, one of the reasons being I can never seem to complete projects, even when I still feel really investing in them. The other reasons aren't /cgl/ related, so I'll leave them out. I have these costumes that I've gotten at least partially done, but even though I'm still interested in them I can't seem to finish. I can only ever finish things for other people. I can't focus or think straight anymore though, so I keep on injuring myself when trying to do things. Cut my finger open while being careless the other day, brushed it off and just waited for the blood to stop flowing so it wouldn't get on anything. Instead of working on any of these numerous projects, I'm sitting here drinking whiskey and hating myself. The only time I've been able to be at all productive and felt okay was when a friend gave me some adderall after a long shift at work, even though I've never had any sort of ADD problem and it was way too intense (I played Windwaker for 13 hours straight and got dehydrated to the point I kept licking my lips and didn't go to the bathroom or get up at all during that time). I feel like such a fucking mess. I just want to go out and nerd out in my chinese cartoon costumes. Or get involved in some of the j-fashion comms instead of just lurking all the time. Only positive is that I have been able to keep my body looking good and my skincare routine going in the hopes that I'll actually finish something, though I want to get thinner with some more muscle.

On another note got my IW order and it was everything I wanted it to be and better. I was worried for a bit because the blouse and JSK were black but the blouse was a bit darker. It looks alright though. The sweet letter they wrote in English made me smile too.

I feel extremely fat, more than normal. I work out 10 hours a week or so, and have to be on a strict meal plan so I don't lose weight. It's just...I feel like a whale when my thighs rub together, or if I poke my stomach. I'm about 117 lbs and 5'6 now that I'm weight restored, and I just feel like a giant slab of blubber. I never had a thigh gap when I was in the hospital and dying. It's been 3 years since I was discharged from the ed clinic. They said I would never get better, but things might get easier. Well things haven't gotten better or easier. They said my growth might have been stunted--emotionally and physically. When I eat, I can feel the fat forming and attaching itself to me. Sometimes I just want to cut it all off.

My "friends" make fun of me. They don't know about my weight struggles, so they comment on how "thin" I am, which simultaneously makes me ecstatic and feeling like I want to cry. They make fun of how I look, my personality, everything.

I'm just really feeling sorry for myself atm, and needed to vent. Thank goodness for anonymous message boards where I can wallow in peace.

Hopefully the other people in your creepy friend's life wise up soon too. The sad part is knowing they'll just leech on to someone else to fill the void you made. Scary.

Ii really sorry that you are struggling, EDs are really tough to cope with. Please be proud that you exercise, eat carefully and have maintained a healthy weight. I think you should contact your doctor and let them know how you feel,see if you can get some support. There is a perception among a lot of people that once your weight is 'normal' your ED is cured and that's just not true- the physical battle is only half the war. It's also really difficult to be around people who don't know your history and think 'thin' is a goal everyone sees the same way or can safely aspire to. Please confide in someone and get some support to help change your thought patterns - CBT or Mindfulness could both help you. Please remember surviving an ED makes you a strong person, and now your body is strong too- please focus on the things your body can do, rather than how it looks.

I'm sorry that it's happening to you too! I know it's hard to cut ties with someone who still interacts with you, mine was easier because they didn't. Hopefully with time they drift off on their own trying to find someone else. I know friend that's in your position and is too nice to actually leave or ignore them. So she's just stuck there and I know it's taking a toll on her.

That's very true, people have already left them and each time they just find someone new to be their friend and it's just a never ending cycle.

When I was younger, I really wanted to get into cosplay. Ended up giving it up around my late18th year when I realized it wasn't "right" for me. Didn't really regret it because I had other interests to pursue anyway.

Discovered Lolita in high school, and fell in love. However, 8 years later, it doesn't really make me happy anymore. I don't want to leave Lolita but I haven't even been wearing it and find my interest in it is fading. I'm not even that interested in clothes in general anymore. It just isn't fun. So I'm upset about that even if it sounds really stupid to other people.

Basically I grow out of all my hobbies and interests and life is boring and I have no purpose.

It's normal to have a wandering eye and feel hot and cold, anon. As long as you can keep it in your pants it's perfectly fine. However, I urge you to think whether you're really happy with him if the spark just isn't there and you don't feel sexually attracted to him anymore. It could open the door to many other problems, and it might be that the relationship has simply come to its natural end, which also happens a lot.

I feel the same and I've already discussed it with my bf, and we're planning to end it when we're not both in a financial dump (since we've lived together for 4 years now) so it's not as hard on us as it would be now.

Take your time to think about it, it's ultimately your call. People change over time and that's okay. Also consider if it's maybe some other factors contributing to your negative feelings - are you stressed out? Are you low on money? In my mother tongue there's a saying, 'Poverty at the door, love out the window'.

Aw anon, I feel you with the thighs rubbing together thing, and the eating making you feel yourself gaining weight. I'm about 5'6" and 130 ish? Most of my weight is in my thighs, seriously when I did track in hs I looked like Chun-Li. I admire you for how dedicated you are to staying healthy! I am too lazy to work out despite how badly I want to put on more muscle.

But I think you should also shift some focus to making yourself happy. The happier you are with your life and the things you do the less you will focus on your weight. If you do not feel comfortable with your friends, just let yourself drift away from them. One thing you will learn is that you don't need to keep poisonous people in your life. If you are not getting anything from a relationship then you can simple end it. Do not put up with shit like that, you deserve better and you should treat yourself as if you do. Plus, there is nothing more fun than making new friends! Please just remember that thigh gaps honestly do not exist except in a very specific body type. Girls have such a lovely shape to their body, and it is very amazing to see how many shapes and sizes they come in. I like to think of us all as flowers, down to the stretch marks and colors and size differences, but in the end we are all something beautiful.

>>no one cares, do it cuz you like the chara
>>tried to make sure i'm not doing it the day she wants to do it
>>fine, I wont, but I'm not doing this bs everytime if this happens again

I'm annoyed bc I feel like shes bringing drama. like, I dont give a crap about you or your cosplays. I'll do what I want on whatever day and same to you. If you're the one thats worried that I'll look better, that's your personal problem, not mine. It wouldnt matter so much, but we arent really friends and my friends don't care about crap like this. Like, we'll just be like "haha, lets take selfies and do stupid crap together since we dressed the same"

I did a cinderella cosplay and there were 3 others cinderella cosplayers and I took a selfie with everyone of them. no one cares.

She also only spends like, 30 min at the con in cosplay so iu don't know why shes so obsessed and freaked out. She annoyed me on another matter and I kinda want to be like, "Changed my mind :)" and dress the same chara but I don't want to be a dick to my friend.

I kind of feel happy for him, he was one of the very few people who understands my mindset, and it's probably for the best that he's been pulled back into the world of normality by this girl, but at the same time that leaves me very much alone on the outskirts. I don't mind the loneliness, but none of my other con friends have the craftsmanship or creative thinking for me to properly brainstorm and bounce ideals off of them.

There's this one girl from my town that I've been friends with for 7 years or so. She's been more into cosplay than me, but in the past few years, I've gotten into the hobby and am making my own cosplays while she still buys most of hers (not really relevant).In high school, I knew someone that was stalking her and another friend, and helped her get proof by screenshotting convos from said stalker. A few months go by and I realized that I started to like her in a romantic way. I had always considered myself hetero, and I never really found myself attracted to females. I brushed off my feelings since she was in a long distance relationship with someone else. Time went on and I eventually left my home town for college while she went off to a nearby art school, but we still kept in touch pretty often through facebook. One day, she deactivated her fb account out of the blue. All of my friends were unable to see her fb account and cosplay page as well. She still posts on DA and occasionally tumblr, so I'm pretty sure she's okay. I've tried reaching out to her recently but still haven't heard back... We always got along really well, but I get a feeling that she secretly found me a bit annoying. I really miss talking to her and she was my last female friend that I was still really close to.

Interesting. I didn't come back here expecting to read such comments. It's funny that you both brought it up, actually. I do have diagnosed anxiety. I've always wondered about having compulsive issues, but I always felt like the things I do are too small to qualify. When I was a teenager I used to wash my hands like crazy. Just coming in from outside made my hands feel extremely dirty, even if I didn't touch anything. I made myself stop washing so much, because my hands were getting dry and raw.
I also always have to give my boyfriend a hug and a kiss before he leaves due to being worried that he'll die while he's gone and I won't be able to kiss him again.
I can never say "good bye" to people, because when I was a kid I watched Road to el Dorado and they had that "best friends never say good bye" song, so I'm worried that if I say the phrase "good bye" I'll never see them again.
I always have to tell everyone who leaves my home to be safe, or else I worry that they'll act restlessly and die. With my boyfriend I used to say it several times even after her left the house, just in case he didn't hear me.
I've developed some sort of infrequent binge eating issue when I'm really anxious. I literally feel like I can not stop eating, even if I'm in pain. It's hard to wait ten minutes to eat during these episodes. Usually the only happen like once a month or less.

Sorry for talking so much, I guess I just was hoping to see if any of this stuff sounds like what you're both talking about. It's just stuff that sticks out to me as abnormal and kind of compulsive I guess.

Anyway, for another feel.

Posting a pathetic feeling because it's a Saturday and I'm locked in my house all alone with nothing to do.

The last few years, I've been using Lolita as a way to cope with being socially isolated. I have no friends. I can't even make friends online. Lolita started becoming a glimmer of happiness for me when I was left feeling isolated. It makes me feel like a character from a story. Admittedly, it doesn't work very well, but it's one of the only things I have to at least feel like I'm "special" instead of feeling unwanted. The worst part is I hardly even wear Lolita because it's a little uncomfortable and I don't want to wear it just sit around my house. I don't even like CGL. I'm only here because lately I've felt lonelier than I can handle.

I'm such a waste of air. At least I can leave nice comments to other people and maybe make their day a little better.

I really want to cosplay again, but I'm just not in good enough shape to do it and not feel horrible about myself, and it's really hard to find enough time and energy to cook healthy food, stick to an exercise routine, etc. It was so easy to stay /fit/ when I was in my late teens, I could eat whatever I wanted and just go jogging every day, but now it's a constant struggle not to gain weight.

It doesn't help that it's hard to find costumes that would fit me even were I skinny/fit again, either. 20-30 something men are kinda rare in anime these days, they're usually not characters I'm interested in, and when I do find one I like, the costume is usually super generic clothes that don't look like cosplay.

I try not to actually pull hairs out, my hair is already terribly thin because of 10+ years of pulling, but I can't seem to stop picking my scalp and splitting hairs. What usually helps me is to keep my hands busy (playdough works really well) but you can't do that all the time. If you find yourself picking without realising the most important part is to train yourself to take notice and actively stop, it's hard but really helps. Also don't say to yourself "oh well I already started might as well continue" stop yourself in the middle of picking, by any means possible, in order to break the habit. Also, let your friends and family know. It's embarrassing but they will help you stop.

mine wasn't a cosplayer or anything (knew him before my cgl phase began, we were childhood friends), but I went to the funeral and it was so shit. his grandparents insisted open casket which made the parents not come in until they closed the casket and the person talking about him was so shit, knew nothing and everything was so bad. my mother felt like she had to talk because of that and everyone said she basically saved the whole memory of the event for them.

It's not a lie, doctors for general check-ups usually tell you "Hey, you might want to consider getting healthy because of the diabetes and all these other health concerns with being overweight" and if you post publicly about it, she's less likely to say shit because it's one thing for your mother to publicly go "Oooh but I think my daughter is beautiful the way she is, look at her!" but quite another for her to anyway look like she wants you to risk heart problems, diabetes, etc by staying overweight.
If you do this option, just be very careful to word it so you're doing it to follow doctor's advice or you'd taking the doctor's advice to lower your risk of all these common problems that overweight patients have. That way it comes off very strongly as MUH MEDICAL HEALTH so anything your mother says to sabotage you/make you feel bad comes off as her being a huuuuuge bitch.

One of my best childhood friends is a slutty club girl who teaches piano for a living in some boggy shithole, the other's the town bike with 2 kids out of wedlock (that she doesn't take care of). My only two guy friends from then are now a travelling homosexual and a priest, respectively. My secondary school friends have turned into fat genderqueer xe/xum SJWs and banished me from their lives (bullet dodged, at least). One is studying in the UK and posts dumb fandom shite occasionally.

I'm in a foreign country where people aren't exactly known for being social so unless you go to the same parties/events as the others they're not interested in you. I've a total of three friends now, two of whom I meet up with once a year, third one's Polish and doesn't speak English all that well but at least she likes tea and resin crafts.

aww. I know them feels. It's so great to see cosplayers do skits who actually know how to use the stage well and have prepared themselves to perform. Maybe it's just the cons I've gone to, but it seems like such a rare thing at masquerades - idk, idgi sometimes because all of my cosplay and lolita friends have been a part of some kind of amateur theatre like community and/or at school, but then almost everyone I see at masquerades are awkwardly upstaging each other or speaking too loudly on the mics or trying to improvise, but don't even understand the concept of "yes and" and try to shoehorn internet jokes.

Is it normal to be kind of afraid of people shouting or hovering over your shoulder? I work retail now and I have to look up certain components on a computer when the customer comes in with a request. And a lot of them like to hang over the desk and look at the computer screen to see what I'm doing, and it just makes me very anxious. My parents used to fight a lot when I was a kid, or yell at me, and I spent a lot of time hiding behind couches or under my bed. Is this normal?

On a more /cgl/ related note, the sheet masks I ordered came in way quicker than I thought they would! I've never tried Freeset Donkey Milk masks before so I decided to splurge a bit on this time's sheet mask haul. I'm excited to try them out.

Yooo anon I have this too, shit sucks but I have coped with it in lolita fashion for about four years now. Here's some advice for you:
-Explain your condition to close friends/those you'd be interacting with at meetups or cons. You don't have to go into excruciating detail but saying "I need frequent breaks to sit for just a couple of minutes" will go a long way. Sometimes this means changing plans when the plans don't include some way for you to rest, but people have been very accommodating with me so they might be with you too. Surround yourself with people who don't suck.
-Stay hydrated!! This will help with overheating and heart palpitations. Also, taking sodium supplements will help with water retention so you're not constantly needing to pee (unless you have other dietary restrictions of course).
-Don't get discouraged! Things will change, but you don't have to stop wearing lolita because of it.

>> No.8976885

I always feel kind of left out at cons since I stopped cosplaying. I try to be super supportive of my friends (one in particular since she does the most), always willing to hold bags for photos, watch for costume malfunctions, help with touch-ups etc. but then I get largely ignored when they meet other cosplayers from the community, or outright ditched for photoshoots and comp stuff. I understand I can't tag along for all of it, but I really hate hanging around cons by myself like a loner. I usually just end up going home instead.

Thank you, it's really comforting to hear that someone else can make work with lolita. I've only just been diagnosed recently and was really active before that so it's been a huge adjustment. I'm seeing a cardiologist who is more familiar with the condition in May so hopefully I'll get more advice on what helps. I'll definitely try the sodium, even though I drink a minimum of 3L a day, I don't seem to be retaining any extra. Do compression tights help a lot? I'm scared to drop $100 on tights unless they help.

it's not really normal but I kinda have that. I have issues with people grabbing my shoulders from the behind or covering my eyes, and generally hovering over my back. I was volunteering at a sports event and the courts were separated with nets (no walls) and the chick volunteering with me left to go to the bathroom or something. apparently she felt like the way to announce she was back was to grab my shoulders from behind and shake.

Another lolita with POTS here. It's totally possible to wear lolita with a few adjustments. Listening to your body and keeping an eye on your vitals can make a big difference.
-compression stockings are awesome, and compression arm gauntlets and stomach compression.
-bring emesis bags and nausea suppressants (if you have gastro symptoms)
-plan a few days before and after a meetup to take it easy
-don't be afraid to use a wheelchair if necessary, it might feel confining but it's way better then passing out in public

Oh anon, I'm sorry. I know going to your first meetup alone is scary, especially if you're very shy, but you can do it. Try talking to the other girls before the meetup (on facebook or whatever), maybe even be upfront about the fact you're shy and nervous if you can manage that, you might be surprised to find out just how forgiving and welcoming they are.

I wouldn't want to wear lolita around him ever again, and it's pretty much all I wear at this point. So I'd either have to drop my fashion or drop my boyfriend. One is far more replaceable and cost me a lot less money.

I would like to ask her to come with me in a very important con to wear some special lolita outfits at least, because my life is so boring and sad thinking others have friends that enjoy lolita, cosplay or have a bf, the closest people i have are so far away so online.
I feel the pain to not going anywhere this summer except going out alone in the afternoon. And i fear to wear lolita alone, simple jfashion is fine.

Next time you want to get hair off your coochie, I suggest you get a men's razor and shaving with baby oil. Men's razors are made for the face, and thus more sensitive skin. Baby oil helps prevent razor bumps and burn. Slather with cocunut oil when you're done

I cannot wear full lolita alone but at least wearing a lolita skirt is something.
I have a friend that she is worse than me, she doesn't go out with anyone since always, she isn't a lolita.
I really suggest to go in that meet, get a good coord and good luck to meet new lolita friends!

I buy all my own dresses and I would feel bad if he bought them, theyre expensive!

Im happy enough when he manages to buy a video game we both wanted to play, I dont expect him to shower me with money, I am an adult.

Hey, want to chat? my email is like an instant messager for me. I don't have any female friends at all really, none of the girls I know are remotely interested in the same things I am.
Let me know anon!
I really like being social, so being alone, surrounded by people that pretend to care about me really sucks, but I'm pretty good at driving conversations if you don't know what to talk about.
AH, rambling, I'll leave it up to you!

If any other lolitas want to chat, don't be a stranger!

take care of your mental health. if you have to move, find ways to keep in touch with friends. plan breaks from your father, go to conventions, and be open to new experiences. people might give you shit but don't let it get you down.

you give some odd info that hints at general insecurity and unreciprocated feelings. this is stuff that can be worked out with a trained professional. it sounds like you will not be getting good interpersonal interaction where you are headed, so check into your university's health plan and get a good brain doctor to do reality checks with.

Similar feel. I bailed a friend out of jail recently because I'm literally one of maybe two people in her life who could do so, and she's done dick to pay me back even a dime yet has the cash to do shit like throw parties with rented animals and support her weed habit. I told her to take her time if she needed it in paying me back, but seeing her do frivolous shit with money when I haven't been given a cent kind of gets me steamed. If she doesn't start putting up soon of her own volition, I'm probably going to mention it the next time she does something completely whimsical and unnecessary with her funds. Idk, I just don't understand how some people can be like that. If I owed anyone a chunk of money like that, I would make it a priority to pay them back asap even if they said they didn't need me to.

Well anon, there are also women that blame always men or people in general and still have a bf, i don't understand why this happen. Maybe some men are so desperate that would settle with whatever woman. I know there are women that are failures at dating and never get one, i was one of this. I'm still singlebut at least i stopped to blame men and get a better person.
About people that could be replaceable, i don't think this is always possibile. There are rare cases when you connect so much with a person and if he/she would be dead, you would have a hard time to find a replacement. If someone thinks a bf/gf like a object to replace in case of breakup it's a bit sad in my opinion. It never be the same, indeed. I had many friends that could be replaceable or even dates but just few remained or were very special for me.
