I feel so empty and weird, I just want to be an excited weeb like i was as a teenager (without the cringe), everything was so much more exciting. I had so much to look forward to. And now that I am 21 and actually have the money to buy real lolita,go to cons,buy anime merch,... i don't really feel like it anymore. I used to have depression but i'm mainly over it, don't know what could be causing that.

Are you sure you're over it? Because thinking everything is pointless and no longer taking pleasure in things you used to sounds like text book depression to me. Maybe talk to a therapist.

>decide to play some animal crossing but then tell myself it's meaningless in the end, a new game will come and it'll become obsolete

And stop thinking like this. First of all it doesn't make any sense. I'm pretty sure the vast majority of people replay their old games. It's not like buying a new game makes the old one stop working?

Secondly you're never, ever going to be happy if you don't make an effort to put yourself in a frame of mind where happiness can be had. Happiness starts with you.

There's a new girl in my comm I totally HATE, but everyone loves her.

She's super sweet, nice, BUT she is into lolita because that ddlg shit.
Her "daddy" buys her all lolita stuff for her, not because she wants or she likes lolita, because HE want to have a baby lolita. It's fucking disgusting. I suspect she even wears a diaper to the meets
(anon)- Damn, sometimes is hard to go to bathroom because the petticoat haha
(ddlg girl)- Haha, glad I don't need to use bath haha

But everyone like her because the fake high pitch voice, her nyans, her kawaii desu and shit. What the actual fuck. Also everyone says "we have to respect her choices, also she's so brave for not hiding it, for do what she wants to do... she's a real feminist blahblahblah".... Feminist? Really?

I'm so sick of my eating disorder and how it makes everything I love not fun for me. I can't be 100% happy in lolita or jfash because there are brands my waist is a few inches too big for and even thinking about those brands makes me so depressed. I can't lift weights because it means my legs and arms won't be thin like a models. I can't run because I ran too much and with bad form over the years as a form of purging and now my joints are fucked. I can't enjoy food, I can't enjoy anything because I'm always thinking about food....I hate caring so much about such a shallow thing as like 3 inches on my waist. I hate how a few pounds are ruining my life. Im trying so hard not to care but in a hobby like fashion it's impossible not to think of your body.

I woke up early today to try to do some cardio and just had a fucking meltdown about all this shit instead. Now I have to go to work and survive on barely any food because I ate 90% of my calories last night and didn't get to burn it off

I never had an eating disorder, but I think I'm developing one. I'm not even a few inches too big for certain brands, I'm fat as fuck and mostly wear oversized clothes to hide how fat I am. All I can think about is food and how I shouldn't eat it, and thinking about food just makes me want to eat more, so I eat and then I feel horrible shame and regret afterwards. And then I can't think about anything other than how fat I am. I hate my body so much, the thought of having an eating disorder excites me. I want to be skinny. I purged for the first time today, and I feel great.

Purging is not taking care of yourself. It's pretending you're solving your problems while adding on new ones.
Get a fitness tracker, exercise regularly and say no to yourself. Reward yourself with new brand for your new bod.

All purging is going to do is wreck your teeth, throw your fluids out of wack, erode your esophagus, among other things.

I've permanently fucked up a muscle in my chest from purging. If I vomit at all, even when sick as a dog, it causes this muscle to cramp, and I'm stuck with intense pain until it finally relaxes.

First anon (>>9273533), please see someone. Food and calories and losing weight used to be my entire world, and it was horrible. I had pretty severe body dysmorphia that still isn't totally gone even ten years later. But I'm telling you from experience that it's so much better being able to appreciate the food you put into your body and being able to actually do things with your body. I'm a healthy weight, I can run for miles without getting tired or sick, and I still fit in all but the smallest brand clothes. Please see someone. You are worth more than some dress size.

Second anon (>>9273561), stop this before you get started. A dear friend of mine found out about my ED and started down this path you're on, she glamorized it and was clearly excited to talk to me about how many times she'd thrown up that week. She never learned how to cope with this kind of thing, rebounded, and is much heavier than she ever was before. Please, instead of taking a destructive path, learn to eat well and exercise. Take the time to care for yourself and actually deal with whatever it is that is making you feel bad about yourself.

I use a fitness tracker obsessively. I've just gotten into thr bad habit of restricting during the day and eating most of my calories at night. I'm seeing a therapist but she doesn't quite get eating disorders and is focusing more on general depression. I've seen many therapists over the years and just can never shake this stupid way of thinking. I've been disordered for over 10 years and dont think ill ever be happy with my body and eating habits. I should probably try to come here less but I really don't want to stop lolita or jfash, I finally found a hobby I love anr without this I'll just be empty.

You are literally fucking retarded. I lost inches off my waist when I was lifting heavy and still had arms small enough for OPs. Now that all I do is run every day since I can't afford my gym atm, I gained 6cm on my waist. No change in diet

Instead of seeing a therapist for your eating disorder, join a good gym and learn to lift. It's so much easier than dieting

I think you meant to quote my response above that one. Id been lifting for about a year or two before I stopped. I was barely getting any stronger, not any thinner, and my legs started to look weird and chunky. I couldn't make myself eat enough to really reap any of the positive effects. Plus I had gotten to the point where if I couldn't work out for an hour and a half at a time I started sprialing into guilt, and it was starting to consume my life. With cardio I'm okay just doing 30-45 min at least. I'm trying to stay consistent with that and then maybe work back to lifting if I can get myself into a healthier mindset.

If that's your only defining quality of being "e-famous" then I fall in that category, but getting lots of likes on stuff really doesn't amount to much in the end unless your fans are super engaged (which means you also need to be super engaged with them too).

I'm so scared that I'm just going to fuck up and annoy them just like last time and then they'll be gone too.

Being autistic is the worst. I'd never wish it upon anybody in the world. It's a curse that nobody understands and that you can't control no matter how badly you want to.

I like the attention from her but my friend is going to be pissed the fuck off if I'm not hanging out with them, and rightfully so.

I look nice since I've lost weight, I'm in a good relationship, I have some friends, I have cute apartment and I got into university that I wanted to go. I feel happy most of the time but at some times this really empty feeling hits me and I start to think that this is not enough. I cosplay but I'm not popular.

You don't need to be brutal or anything. Try if you can to plan some stuff I'm advance with each of them (a panel with the girlfriend here, an event with the best friend there) and let them both know your schedule so you have guaranteed time with each and they both know in advance not to expect to be attached to you 24/7. Also, is there a reason all three of you couldn't hang out together?

>i was hustling to put out new cute content every day. it worked, and i was certainly growing, but it wasn't fun.
Came on here to share a similar feel and your post was what I needed to hear. I feel so much irrational stress and pressure to perform and constantly put out new content, even as someone who's nowhere near properly efamous. I feel like I'm constantly need to spend more to bring new stuff to the table and find it hard to know when to stop buying even when spending hundreds of dollars a month.

The sad part is that I actually have a cohesive wardrobe (used to wear lolita regularly and built it with that in mind), but I've realised that you're less popular if you wear the same thing twice so I have dozens of outfits that that never get worn because I feel like "average" isn't good enough. Having a match-everything bag and shoes is a waste of time if people are going to complain online that all your coords are essentially the same, and my novelty pieces feel like they have to be paired with cohesive yet quirky and matching outfits so the bag doesn't seem out of place, which leaves me on a perpetual hunt for more accessories and new items to make perfect, unique coords.

I know it's pathetic and irrational but it really gets to me. I also fear being accused of copying one or two other efamous girls who have a similar style, and I'm going long stretches of time without wearing lolita at all because I feel too ugly to photograph, like if I get a coldsore or a breakout. I'd be happier about stepping away from the community with my average coords if everything I owned was average, but actually I have a lot of rare pieces I've never/rarely seen worn pics of before that I'd like to share.

Wearing lolita daily prevent me from feeling like I'm wasting money on a huge wardrobe that isn't getting worn, and I could just post the select best coords online, it's not possible with my current living situation and being a meetlita has just given me something else to beat myself up over. My comm is small and rarely has meets, so I only get to wear lolita out once every couple of months. I used to fight the lack of events by hosting meets myself, but I've got a new job with really irregular shifts and can't commit to hosting anything because I might get called in to work last-minute, despite having a lot of free days in the month.

None of it is actually fun any more with the pressure (feeling like I'm too ugly, my camera's too bad, this coord is nice but it's the same wig as last time and people are sick of it), but without much opportunity to wear lolita in daily life posting pics online and shitposting on cgl is my only interaction with the community. I pretend online to have a more exciting life than I really do, but in reality most of my coords these days are things I changed into in my room in a spare hour or so, photographed then changed back out of again because I'm too busy for anything more. I've even gone into the street to take photos before so it looked like I went out, then straight away gone back inside.

Sage for pathetic blogpost but it's eating me up inside. Sounds like I need to go on a hiatus from the online community but lolita is my main hobby and without the online side I'm spending hundreds of dollars a month for nothing.

I'm another person and I also suffer so much from that. I never make any friends. For years I've been in the cosplay community, but I'm still an outsider, I've never done a group cosplay or anything like that.
And I'm way worse than everyone else, finding other people with aurism doesn't help. The local Homestuck community has almost like 40% autistic people but yet I'm the only person who ends up alone. The others have each other and also an active social life besides that while I'm too unlikeable for anyone to want to spend time with me.

Besides cosplay I also haven't made any friends in countless other social settings. There's just no point trying, I'll remain alone. Forced to go to even the smallest conventions to meet any people so something can happen in my life. Do I even like cosplay?

If it makes you feel any better, I really like seeing repeated outfits occasionally. It makes things more personal, I guess, being able to see that, hey, this person really likes this coord. Trying to come up with a totally unique new thing every time makes lolita feel less like a fashion to me, at least in the sense of every day wearability that a lot of people insist exists while still cycling through 200$+ dresses in a blink. Idk, reading your posts made me sad, and I hope you can find the time to wear lolita for yourself and get joy out of it for the clothing that it is rather than the hollow internet presence you've gathered. And even if you want to continue being active online and enjoying some small amount if efame, know that there are people like me out there who will appreciate a good coord reworn or worn in ways that aren't perfectly matchy matchy but show the real "this is clothing" aspect of lolita.

Thanks. I wish I could quit my job and move to another area where I could wear lolita daily, but I can't quit this job for a few months or I'll make myself look like I move through jobs too fast (other than the fact the schedule interferes with my ability to date or get to meets, it's actually a decent job so it feels petty to quit), and I can't move out of this area for another two years. I feel really trapped. I've got a couple of weeks off to see family over the holidays so maybe I can wear lolita then, but I don't think I can fit much in my case.

I like seeing items repeated too, when they match. It makes the person's wardrobe seem more real. Sometimes I think about stepping back from posting coords and switching to making "one dress five ways" sort of posts, but blogging doesn't seem as big as it used to be so I don't know what would be the best platform for it.

Maybe I should take up another hobby that'd fit better into an irregular schedule, like anime or sewing or something. I dropped a lot of my old hobbies after high school and sometimes wish I hadn't, as it's left me with nothing except lolita and watching TV.

There is this newbie girl in my comm, really weird, about 24, she just got into lolita this year.
tried to be friends with her but she is so weird, in a "not quite there" way if you catch what i mean.
And I see her commenting on so many FB sales posts and buying SO MUCH BRAND when she cannot coord for shit. She got really pretty pieces so it just makes me even more salty.
She buys so many pretty shit yet she makes it look like crap. Idek how she afford all that she works in a fucking snack bar.
I mean come on, she bought two dresses considered not so common,a shit ton of accessories and then she messaged me to ask me to lend her my petticoat and answered with a "-_-" face when i told her i didnt have time to meet her this week. (Nor do i want to actually.) What is she? 14?

They actually look terrible as OTKs anyway because it's hard to get the top looking even and there's usually not enough stretch for it to hug knees.

So turning them into thigh-highs and wearing them with a garter belt is actually the way to go; you can certainly wear warmer tights under that combo. Provided you don't care about the resale value and don't mind doing the work/paying a tailor for the alterations, that is.

Tf are those things so expensive anyway? Wunderwlt sells goddamn dresses for 3000 yen sometimes yet headbows are consistently 2500 or so, their value barely depreciates no matter how expensive they are. I know they're versatile but brands have been releasing them for years, you'd think there'd be enough on the market to support lower prices.

Without going into the "are European countries more progressive than the US" thing, which I don't think anyone who hasn't lived in both places for at least a couple of years can answer, there is no way both places can even be compared when it comes to racism issues, especially racism agains black people.
This is an issue that has a huge history in the US. Black people not having the same rights as white people is not a very distant memory to many Americans. However, this issue is much more nuanced in most of Europe.
European countries didn't have the class difference between blacks and whites in the same scale the US did, and they really aren't as ingrained in society here.
I'm not saying Zwarte Piet is not racist, I'm just trying to say that people from different parts of the world with different histories have way different perspectives on things like these.
I find the people who don't want to budge and adapt to society as it is today and the more "Americanized" worldview that includes morons, but so are the people who take one look at this tradition and decide it's racist, without considering different points of view and cultures.

My parents and I spend Christmas in SoCal every year. We drive down and stop at hotels on the way. Last year, we stopped in San Francisco so I could go to the brand stores, which they said would be a one time thing because hotels in the area are expensive. They later changed their minds, and we'll be going again this year, which I'm very excited about.

I. You know. I don't even know how to broach this gently. Today they went out and bought a camper. I hate it, but it's none of my business since, outside the week or so it takes to get to SoCal, I don't have to live in the thing. But man, do I ever hate the idea of living in a camper in the winter.

On the other hand it also means 2 things: One, we can stay in San Francisco longer, so I can visit some other stores. And two, it also means I can probably make trips to LA, and even join the LA comm.

Why does it suck being a 20yr old dude who just wants to cosplay as cute female characters?

I go to local cons and try to get the nerve to wear my costumes out, but I keep them to myself in private.
I work to keep myself in the 130lb range through exercise, to keep myself feeling good.
I look and feel great, but just no nerve.
I just want to go out and slip between the cracks with other cali cosplayers.

Cosplay friend group went through some drama. The result is that although they probably didn't do it maliciously, I can tell for a fact that I care about one of my friends a lot more than they care about me, and that hurts. They weren't out to hurt me, but they certainly weren't looking out for me. If I had been in the same position, I wouldn't have done that to them. I feel really used.

We'd hit it off so well years ago. Our personalities meshed really well, we had so much in common and always so much to talk about. Now I look at pictures of us and just get sad. I didn't have a blow up fight as much as distanced myself so I feel like I don't have proper closure either. We were planning to do cosplays together, photoshoots, so many things. I know it'll resolve and I'll get over myself real soon, but for now I wanted to share.

The good news is that I have an excuse to throw myself at personal projects and into workouts to distract myself, and it feels damn good to be productive! To anyone in a rut right now, I hope you can hop behind your sewing machine, make some stuff, and feel better!

I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong at this point. I can't even count the number of times my cosplay groups/duos have fallen through last minute because of my friends. I get everything done on time and keep them updated and give them tutorials and even materials. But something always happens and I end up going it alone. I've come to terms with it at this point. I've long since stopped making costumes for any reason except myself.

But this time I planned a group of three with my two absolute best friends. I need to stop cosplaying after this con because my doctors want me home bound. And I just wanted to do something with the three of us. But both girls dropped on me and I can't pretend I'm not hurt anymore. Of course we're still going to spend the con together regardless of what we wear but I'm hurt.

I've been trying to see it as my friends just focusing on themselves to chase their own dreams, which helps. But it sucks knowing they aren't invested as you.

My husband's grandma just died. Not of old age, she was on her way to work and someone tboned her car. I've been processing feelings of sadness, guilt, and worry the past few days.

I feel guilty because we only saw her once a year, on Christmas eve. And she could sometimes be frustrating, and I know at least to my husband it was kind of a chore to visit. And I wasn't as good about responding to her texts as I should have been. But I am sad because I really do think of her as a grandma, and I'm going to miss her. I'm not at all close with my own biological grandma and never felt the kind of warmth with my grandma as I felt with her. Even before we got married she considered me a grandchild and loved me. She even gave me her sewing machine and a custom built table for it because she wasn't good at it and wanted me to have it. Even though she knew I was only going to be using it for cosplay and silly nerd stuff. She would ask me every time she saw me if I was working on any costumes lately.

And I'm mostly worried for my mother in law. She just lost her mother, suddenly, violently, and with no preparation. She's destroyed. And there's nothing comforting I can say or do to make it hurt less for her. As sad as I am about my grandma-in-law's death, she feels a thousand times worse and I'm helpless, living at a distance from her with no car, no way to come over and help her with housework or cooking or just hold her while she cries.

It may be a bit cruel to say this now but you really should have visited much more often, however you can learn from this and make sure you visit your other older relatives more often from now on, and when your parents are old also visit them regularly so you never have to regret not spending enough time with them, as you do now.

Way to go, anon! How long did it take you, and what kind of strategies have you been using?

I've been counting calories for the last year and a half, and at last check, I've dropped about 10-15 pounds. I'm down to about high school weight, but all the clothes I've bought since university are kind of baggy and unflattering now. On top of that, I have to double-check the sizing on all my patterns before using them and half my cosplays don't fit well anymore, haha. Still feels good though.

>> No.9278151

>>9278130
No saggy skin either! I'm half white half black, so it's probably them black don't crack genes at work

>>9278134
It took me roughly ~10 months, and honestly all I did was eat A LOT less(no more than 1200 calories/day, and I never went over that during those 10 months. Not once! Often was under), completely cut out soda(I actually ONLY drank water for those 10 months, and only drank alcohol every once in a while). Its been about 9 months since I lost all that weight, and its stayed off! Being a guy, I don't want to drop below where I'm at, so I've been lifting for the past couple weeks trying to get fit.

If you cut your calories to a low amount like that, you need to make sure you're taking supplements to stay healthy. Like a multi vitamin, magnesium, etc. I got my blood work done a couple times during that 10 month span, and it was surprisingly flawless.

Yeah, the worst thing about losing weight is having to buy all new clothes. Like I had to replace so many clothes over those 10 months, and it just ended up costing me a fuckton, but it's 100% worth it.

Well shit, I never thought of it that way.

FUCK.

But I do remember being in a depression at 15 when I had one of those moments of clarity that I'd never know my parents, and I think that heavily contributed to me just being like fuck it lets stay fat because dieting and losing weight is effort I don't feel like doing.

Obviously that's a shitty mentality to have and keep for years, but hey at least I finally broke out of it at 22 and lost all the weight. I'm not going to sit here and lie, and say that people saying nice things about the change I made makes me feel good, because it does, and it's important to me. To be even more honest, if I didn't have a few people in my life being supportive and encouraging as I lost the weight, I probably would've just been lost to the depression and stayed fat forever given what I know about my mental state at the time.

But weight loss from being fat to healthy is a beautiful thing in more than just physical ways. It has totally snapped me out of any depression I had, and gave me a much brighter and positive outlook on life and my future.

I think positivity and encouragement is important for those trying to make a significant life change like that, and that negativity and all that shit should be mostly directed at fatties who refuse to change and claim they're perfect as they are.

Well yeah, I mean obviously that's the case. Like I said in that post once I lost all the weight, things completely and drastically changed for me. But when you're in a mental state like that and there's literally nothing for you out there, it's hard to imagine that as even being a realistic possibility. Not an excuse for staying fat, just tossing out what I remember feeling at the time. I was pretty alone for a while.

I have thought about all the time wasted and it really doesn't bother me anymore desu, because what's done is done and I just have to accept the fact that I fucked up and gave in instead of fighting. What's important to me now is that I'm happy, have so much going for me that I never would've dreamed of, and am getting to a very comfortable and bright place in my life and future.

It would be nice to go back and smack myself out of it to be in this position earlier in life, but the reality is I'll have to settle for a happy future from this point on instead.

Most wisdom teeth surgeries are not that big a deal. It varies from person to person and along with which anesthetic you use but you aren't going to be walking around like the Elephant man a few days after the extraction. Everyone I know was completely fine within 1-4 days, and even though your gums may be tender, odds are that nobody will even realize you had the surgery in the first place.

Yeah, in the US particularly wisdom teeth are removed routinely even if there's nothing wrong with them and you have enough space etc. People get convinced to do it "preventatively" to stop potential future issues. It's kind of mental considering how many complications you can have from having them taken out though. I guess that's what you get when you run healthcare like a business though.

Take it as a gentle hint that your friends don't appreciate that kind of bullshit emotional manipulation. If you have a serious problem and want comfort, open your mouth and say something directly to a living person. Self-deprecating "cries for help" on social media are rampant because it's an easy button for attention and superficial asspats. I have a FB acquaintance who every few days posts thinly veiled suicide threats or "I'm so ugly" posts or even occasionally gory makeup tests that she implies aren't fake because the comments will always flood in. Even though your post is real, it's probably getting lost in the noise.

Afaik if your teeth are bad enough for you to need orthodontics then wisdom teeth are likely to need to be removed if you don't want that money to be wasted. When I say 'need' I mean fairly screwed up teeth not just a little bit of an overbite or one slightly crooked tooth. The majority of people who need orthodontics for really crooked teeth don't have enough space for their wisdom teeth as well, usually they don't even have enough space for their permanent dentition.

>>9278469
Mine were impacted and nowhere near the surface/erupting because they decided to push forwards on my back molars, so I had them all out under general anaesthetic (not my choice - I wanted local with sedation, but due to the complexity/depth none of the local surgeons would do it without GA)
My face was pretty swollen for a full week and I was sore despite ice/ibuprofen/paracetamol/elevation, but two of the teeth had to come out in pieces so I suspect there was a bit of yanking and things on my jaw. I didn't have any of the complications like dry socket, but my dissolvable stitches in one site came loose a bit early so I had a gum flap on one area that took about 4 weeks to disappear.
Recovery really depends on how much local trauma there is to the area, the complexity of the removal (an erupted tooth without deep roots will come out a lot more easily than an impacted tooth with deep roots) whether you have them all done at once, your own general reaction to stuff (e.g. if you bruise/swell easily chances are it'll happen with this) and also how good your surgeon is.

And half of them had shit GPAs when they finally did graduate, the other two were the super smart, hardworking, diligent, always-studying types. In fact when I was in college and university, a really big chunk of students were in their mid or even late 20s.

Most of my friends graduate or will be graduating around 24/25 or older. I'll be graduating in a year and will have just turned 23 and I don't feel behind at all. Perspective matters a lot. I'm from the USA for the record, and not some podunk town either
