She means Chad was the best. She just fucked Chad and he told her

So her legs were spread wide open, she's moaning hard, holding her cell and listening to his commands. The hearts were how she was feeling while posting, but it wasn't because of you that she was feeling that way.

his sexual interests pretty much leads to having an open relationship, in a way.

good feels:
>tfw built up a nice and cohesive lolita wardrobe within the span of about 3 months

started wearing lolita like 3 years ago but then life swept me away and i couldn't immerse myself fully. now that things are happy and i have the support of my loved ones i condensed a lot of wardrobe growth within a short time. it's nice!

>tfw making more and more friendships and connections with lolitas

i'm a big introvert but the people who have stuck with me have all been really nice about it. i hope that i can stay in touch for a long time.

kind of bad feel:
>tfw have to grow up and figure my life out quickly

i was really sick on and off for ~5 years so now that i'm semi-recovered i have to figure my life out all at once. now i'm scoping out career options and locations that will continue to allow me burando money.

Two years is a long ass time to waste on a relationship that sounds toxic as fuck.

Found out last year that an ex-friend of mine had been talking shit about me online years after our falling out. I wouldn't have given a shit except she was telling people to avoid me at cons and my income primarily comes from Artist Alleys so it was kind of shitty. Say whatever you want about me but don't actively hamper my business. I ended up spiraling and sort of hate-reading her blog after a long period of having forgotten about her. She's actually made pseudo-death threats aimed toward me on her blog before so the fact that she was trying to tell people to boycott me at cons shouldn't have been surprising. Apparently I'm the one ruining conventions for her because the very fact that I might be at the same con as her is triggering.

New Year's resolution is to ignore her completely and stop checking on her. My initial thought was "I want to know what this bitch is saying about me behind my back so I can do damage control" but at this point I know that knowing whatever she says won't change anything. I ended up doing better than ever at cons last year and I made a ton of convention friends. I just gotta do me. Wish me luck gulls so I won't cave again.

You stop that right now. You know what happens when you die? People don't just forget about you, you don't just cease to exist. You live on in the hearts and minds of dozens of people, if not more. Friends, loved ones, social acquaintances, hell even people online you've never met. Its a painful thing to carry in your heart the memory of deceased friend or even just a light acquaintance. Add in suicide and that pain is even worse. Knowing that someone was so unhappy, so upset with the world and you didn't or couldn't do anything to help them really fucks with people after a suicide.

Killing yourself is the most selfish and cruel thing anyone can do. You aren't getting rid of your burdens, you're putting them on every single person that ever gave a shit about you. I know, I've lost quite a few friends over the years, some to suicide. I even watched a guy jump off the building we lived in and I'll carry that moment with me till the day I die.

People care about every single one of you, no matter how many assholes or salty bitches you meet, there are people that care. Half the reason I even keep my Facebook is to check in on the family and friends of those that have died in the time I've known them. I assure you, killing yourself will completely destroy anyone that's ever loved you. And whether you know it or not there are always people that love you. So do what you need to, cry sometimes, be sad, get depressed, that's all part of life. Even the happiest people aren't happy all the time. But don't ever be a selfish cunt and kill yourself. You will be missed.

If you feel alone or lost or just need someone to talk to, you can email me.

You are so confused and warped about suicide and wanting to die, the only thing you will ever really own in this world is yourself, if you wish to escape the pain of yourself and the torment of your mind, no one has the moral power to stop you. You are confused, everyone who has ever ended themselves known the pain they leave behind they know very well what they are doing, and it isn't to be a hero, it isn't for the glory or anything related to good feelings. Its just to make the screaming of your own body stop. You speak of cruelty you know little of the cruelty of oneself to oneself!

No one speaks to you more then you do to yourself in your head and when those voices shout loathing and hatred its difficult to find reasons why suffering seems to be the only path. Things get better but they never get good for people who feel this way.

Pessimistically what does it matter? look at graves unattended for centuries those people are long forgotten and so will we and so will our children's children. Watch some ted talks on suicide and death for this lashing out at people wanting to die seems to come from being afraid to die yourself. Could be wrong but whatever man.

Making huge life changes for someone and being with them for 2 years is really a hard situation to break from. Please think of breaking up seriously. I went through something similar.

>Killing yourself is the most selfish and cruel thing anyone can do.

Wanting someone who's suffering and living ever day of their lives as a torturing experience is the most selfish thing you could do. I'm sure you wouldn't find it selfish if someone terminally ill requested the plug be pulled on them to take them out of their pain, right? In that situation it -feels- more moral because they are on their way to die anyway with no hope of recovery and their pain is physical. Emotional pain can be just as severe, and for a lot of hyper depressed people it's a pain that won't go away.

>Just go to therapy
>Just take meds
>Get more into your hobbies

Many depressed people already try all of these for years on end with no positive outcome. It can help some, but not all. You will be able to continue living your life with happiness, it's your life after all. You may have dips in sadness thinking of a lost loved one who took their own life, but it will almost certainly not be as excruciating as the pain they experience every single day.

While you're alive, enjoying your life, having the happy moments with the sad, they're living every day with only sad. Intense sadness that you feel physically dig a pit into your chest, with the inability to even cry anymore in most cases. Cynical to the point of not even trying for happiness anymore after years of failure. Is it right for you to force them to stay alive with your naive "everyone can be happy if they try" attitude? They're in pain, all the time, with absolutely no hope of escape. You still have the capacity to live happy moments to balance out the sadness you'll feel from their departure. They don't have that luxury.

So who's selfish? The one not in pain wanting to keep someone in pain alive for their own sake? Or the one in pain wanting to end their own suffering since their life ultimately affects THEM more than anyone else?

>> No.9306487

You realize real depression is a mental illness, right? There's no "that's all a part of life" if we're talking about actual depression and not normal sadness. People with depression aren't "the happiest people" by any stretch of the imagination. Depending on the severity, they may never feel happiness at all. At 29 years old the only feelings I can say I have in my arsenal are apathy, sadness, content, anxiety, hopelessness, and anger (which is actually rare, most things make me apathetic). Things that should make me happy are just met with apathy or content, which in turn means people stop trying to make me happy because it's a fruitless effort.

I've never been in a relationship so I have no exes to grieve over me. My parents live in another country and I'm so off the grid of contact that they may very well never learn of my death. My con acquaintances aren't close to me and probably wouldn't learn of my death either if I just signed off and never came back online one day.

In the end, the only thing keeping me alive is my dog. She's 12 and gettin there in age, so honestly her death may put me over the edge when it happens.

I feel like I'm drifting apart from my old cosplay friends and a lot of the local community I know in general. Conventions aren't as fun anymore and I barely have any desire to go. There's too much drinking and partying going on around here and I'm just not into that. There are too many self-proclaimed models looking for e-fame or thirsty neckbeard cash and I just can't relate.

I have no idea why people are getting so buttblasted over your reply because as a person who has had depression for pretty much all of their life, I found it really sweet.

Illnesses are treatable. I've been on a heavy dose of medication for years and I'm slowly working my way towards feeling good about myself and life.

Getting out of bed is still one of the hardest things to do. It's even harder to convince myself to brush my teeth, shower and take care of myself even after years of therapy and medication. It's not an easy road but recovery is possible.

Get therapy. Take medication. Keep trying. I promise you that you life will change.

Suicide is legitimate in certain cases. However, the reason it's perceived as a "cry for help" is because some people leave notes or generally lack the grace to go in a manner that isn't attention seeking. It's a complete load of bullshit to say the rest of the world is selfish for wanting you to live and then turn around and do it in any sort of manner that makes it clear to the rest of the world that you wanted to commit suicide. If you genuinely believed that no one gives a fuck, why would you ever make it remotely obvious that it was a suicide? The people who wander off into Aokigahara have a clearer idea about this sort of thing, and even then the cops and rangers have to deal with the remains if they're found.

i understand and mostly agree with everything you're saying, but at the end of the mourning process you've hopefully come to some form of closure and understanding of the person you lost, even if that's just knowing that you'll never understand. A lot of people who commit suicide seem to do it out of the blue, and while yeah, it does hurt knowing that someone you love suffered and you didn't know it, you shouldn't blame or resent them for feeling that pain. You just didn't understand, and that's not a crime for either of you. It's just a sad thing that happens in this world. A lot of people are lonely and sad and to get mad about people for being unable to cope is a dick move.

Depression after a traumatic event or loss is normal. This depression may persist for a good year or more, and will heal with good luck. There are forms of depression that either are mental illness on its own, or a persistent symptom of another mental illness. Many may find regular dbt/cbt most effective. It is important to find a skilled therapist familiar with suicide. It's important to find a program that offers both group and individual sessions based on personal comfort. People suffering from juvenile onset may prove resistant to medication the whole of their lives.

I appreciate what you're trying to do anon, but you realise you catch more flies with honey than vinegar right?

Guilt tripping people who already feel like shit enough to contemplate suicide is not helpful. Making them feel more shit than they already did is not going to lift them above such thinking.

I've had (diagnosed) depression since I was 14-15 years old. I remember people calling me stupid for admitting I wanted to die, or selfish, or that I was overacting to a temporary problem. And all that ever did was make me block them and ignore what they had to say because it made me feel even worse about myself. Like "not only do I feel bad but apparently I am a bad person too".

I didn't start improving until I met my best friend, who actually came at the issue from a place of understanding and without judgement. When I was having a suicidal episode she'd just tell me she understands, and she loves me, and everything will be okay. She wouldn't tell me I'm cruel, or a cunt, or stupid, or selfish for hurting the people around me. And because of her help I only suffer from depressive episodes every few months, and with no suicidal thoughts.

I'm not medicated and I don't go to therapy anymore because neither worked for me. Instead I found my own way, and I couldn't have done that without her gentle support and kindness.

Life is suffering, I'm not going to disagree with any of you on that. Depression can be a medically diagnosed ailment as well, not everything has a solution as simple as "you'll get better over time" or "take some pills and you'll perk up." You actually have to want to get better. If you are so utterly lost and desperate to end your existence nothing short of forcefully committing you to an Asylum will stop you. People who truly want to die will take measures to make it happen. I know, I've seen it.

But if even a shred of you has any minute desire to carry on, to make it to a day when things are better, to feel happy and fulfilled again, seek help. A 10 minute chat with a friend, a loved one, or even a therapist isn't going to provide all of life's solutions or right chemical imbalances, or erase traumatic experiences. But it's a step in the right direction and urge anyone that even contemplates suicide to find someone willing to listen. There are a vast number of suicide and crisis hotlines available for free with people that legitimately care about you. Most of this board is under 30 years, how can anyone here say with complete certainty that the first 1/4 to /13 of your life will be anything remotely similar to the next 66-75 percent?

The argument that some people should be allowed to commit suicide is valid, but I sincerely doubt anyone in this thread is suffering from an immensely debilitating disorder or terminal illness so severe that an assisted suicide would even be remotely considered by anyone on a professional level.

Depression fucking hurts. It's like a void that eats away at you from the inside, it distances you from the ones you love, sucks the joy out of hobbies and daily activities and leaves you like a hollowed out shell consumed by the misery of feeling as though everyday until your last will be nothing more than continued suffering. But life can get better, if you're willing to try.

Sounds like it's time to go. I know it sounds scary but it might be necessary.

I lived with someone for four years before I finally got my head together as it were, and realized the person was being abusive to me and that I shouldn't be living with them. I moved across country away from my family, and they weren't happy that I had chosen to live with this retard so I couldn't just go to them.

I saved up a bunch of money, broke up with him, and moved to a city because I wasn't going to just move out in the small city where I was already.

I've lived in a big city for five years now and my life has never been better than it is now.

Seriously. Just pay your rent for this month, pick a place, save and go.

Or do I go OTT because it's a big party and I know many of the other attendees will also be dressed to the nines? Problem is, I don't do OTT very well because I dislike clutter.

Actually, this is probably the worst and possibly really painful away of dying. You know your body has this thing, right? It's called vomiting. You tend to do it when it knows it's ingesting too much of a bad thing. Sometimes even a stinky piece of fish is enough to trigger it.

I know first hand from attempting it; you feel really woosy and sick, and then you vomit. It's possible you cause organ failure in the process and end up in pain. It's one of the least effective ways to kill yourself.

Don't try to give someone who's researched suicide seriously advice on how to commit suicide. They most likely know a lot more than what you think you've learned from Hollywood.

(A good way to die is an exit bag, by the way. Look it up if you don't know what that is. I have one in my closet and just need to wait until I finish trying up my loose ends so my debt doesn't get inherited by anyone)

Adderall, and all medications to manage adhd are addictive amphetamines. You will become physically addicted to them, and eventually your tolerance will raise and you'll have to start buying more and more for it to work.

Even people who are prescribed them by doctors become physically addicted and end up abusing them, the only thing keeping them from seriously damaging themselves is the fact their doctor knows they're prescribing them with a damaging, addictive substance and controls the supply as best they can. Drug dealers do not take the hippocratic oath.

Also worth noting that adhd symptoms don't = adhd. You could have a ton of other conditions. Don't self diagnose and don't' self treat.

There are many types of medications approved for adhd on the market. Strattera is non stimulant being pushed as a good alternative to the more recognized stimulants, like Ritalin and Adderall. Ritalin and it's extended release brother, Concerta are not amphetamines, they're in the phenylethlamine/piperidine class. Just because someone is prescribed a potentially addictive substance does not mean they will become an addict. That's why the doctor prescribes it, because the pros outweigh the cons and they counsel the patient to adhere to proper use. Believe me, most doctors won't prescribe cns stimulants if they think the patient is a junkie. I've seen more college kids come in from Molly(and whatever was actually in it) than abusing Adderall. And the ones I dealt with who were abusing it, got it from a friend of a friend.

OP if you feel desperate enough to obtain illegal street drugs, you should really do more research to find a Dr that may allow you to pay on a sliding scale. Some communities have discount Healthcare for the uninsured.

>35 main pieces
>feel like I've filled the main gaps in my wardrobe according to my own taste and style
>still feel like I've got nothing to wear most times a meetup comes up because I haven't planned enough for practical and logistical issues
Next week I need a coord that is long-sleeved and warm, toned-down enough for me to spend several hours on public transport in (AKA dark-coloured and probably gothic or classic), something I haven't worn multiple timesbefore (AKA not classic), and something that works with my natural hair (AKA not gothic). Nothing I own works. I feel like I'm constantly trying to square a circle when I try to find something that fulfils multiple conflicting requirements at once.

Up until now I've fixed this by buying more stuff, but I don't even know how to do that this time, unless I keep adding new simple coords to my wardrobe that fit my lifestyle but not my personal taste. The only big gap I think I still have is needing to buy two more coats, since a recurring issue for me is that my main coat doesn't work gothic or with high-waisted sweet dresses.

Ask your doc about Nuvagil/Modaphinil, it's fucking awesome. It's not laser focus, so I have more control over what I spend my life saturated in.

I'm sorry, you weren't asking for suggestions, but if you don't like Adderal, you have alternatives.

>> No.9308131

My natural hair is fairly light brown and doesn't work with gothic at all, it okay when correctly styled but still much worse than wearing a wig, and I don't think any amount of hairspray can maintain it through four hours on public transport. It seems like I should just wear a wig, but in my experience of my country, pastel sweet with natural hair gets less negative reactions than gothic or classic with an obvious wig (I guess because when you're sat down on public transport people only usually see your head and shoulders).

I only have one lolita coat, and it's a coloured coat that's classic/sweet and doesn't work with gothic at all. Most of my gothic blouses and OPs have low/square necklines that you can't conceal thermal underlayers under either.

I suppose checking the weather forecast closer to the time should help as well, if it's going to be terrible I'll have to wear my coloured coat even if it'll catch more attention, if it's cold but dry I might be able to get away with a bolero and layering. I always feel like I'm overthinking it, but I get really anxious when I'm going to meets with a lot of people I don't know as I don't have much online presence so they're judging me entirely on what I look and act like that day.

this might sound easier said than done, but I was sick of crushing on people who I considered 'out of my league', so I made myself out of theirs. It's surprising how much exercise, a decent hair cut and a bit of make up does for you.
Essentially, confidence is key! At the end of the day, confidence is just a facade anyway. We all just fakers gulls. Do something to make yourselves in or above their 'league'. I'm not very pretty but I've not had problems with finding a boyfriend since I changed my way of thinking. The best thing about faking confidence is that you actually end up confident. I know it's hard to love yourself, but that's the key. Before anyone can truly love you, you have to love yourself.
I mean yeah there's gonna be a lot of thirsty fuckers too, probably moreso than before, so what?
I mean, the side effect of this is that people won't approach you because you're 'out of their league', but honestly when you drop your pants for them they're so 'omg i cant believe how lucky i am' it's painful. And funny.

I rarely attend meets or events, I don't use apps like amino or try to socialize online, etc. I just don't care to try to force friendships or spend time and money with people I don't really care about just because we like the same clothes. I'm happy with two or three close friends to talk about releases with and being a lonelita otherwise.

And it's sort of frustrating because I wear lolita often in my daily life whereas a lot of the girls who act superior pretty much only wear it to meets/cons or if they have a buddy to dress up with. But I'm less of a lolita because I prefer to keep to myself and don't need a community to wear a fashion.

It's dumb, and I'm both annoyed by that attitude when I do attend a meet and annoyed with myself for letting it get to me. This venting brought to you by attending a con and having local girls acting superior for putting on shitty programming and making a comment about how they were surprised I even bothered showing up.

I keep gaining weight, I thought it was from my body being thrown off by my ED but I have been eating perfectly and exercising for 3 months and gained 7 pounds over the last two weeks. Im basically in remission from ed but I think it's my medication that's causing the gain. Now I'm 5'8 165 lbs and dangerously close to getting too fat for my Lolita. I just want a little solidarity from girls who are or were once a little on the chubby side. I'm not a whale or anything (teetering on the edge of overweight technically) but I want to believe in myself and wear Lolita, cosplay, otome...

I'm not stupid and I'm not gonna run around in bikini cosplay. I continue to treat my body as correctly as possible. I just can't control this. Fuckity fuck. I want to appreciate cute fashion now instead of waiting for my body to become worthy.

The metabolic effects from a prior eating disorder can sometimes be life long. There is a chance your body will never 'heal'. This is something anyone with an ED must accept, the possibility they may permanently struggle with a body trying to process calories at a reduced rate. Are you on any mental medication? Also, how is your thyroid? Has it been checked at all since recovering?

>> No.9309319

But life is already terrible for me and in getting old!

>> No.9309325

To elaborate on the ED, metabolic problems are rife with recovering patients. Let's say you limited yourself to 500 calories per day for years. What's happened, and the reason you survived, is because your body adapted it's metabolism to live off 500 calories per day. This means the body can easily begin to see an extra 1000 calories as 'excess', and will process it as excess. This is really what a low thyroid from ED is all about. Alternatively, people with bulimia may experience issues where their body tries digesting certain foods super fast, such as sugars and fats, and will attempt to hold onto that extra weight/substance. There's a ton of weight issues and metabolic unbalances that can arise from ED. Even a year of eating again won't fix it.

>> No.9309329

that's not what i read.

life for a chad is always great because men's attractiveness isn't based on looks but rather intelligence, charm, and money. besides, men can still be handsome up into their 50s.

>> No.9309330

And the last thing, please be careful healing yourself from an ED. Going from eating 500 calories one day to suddenly eating 1500 a month later can really fuck with the body because it suddenly gets all these calories and sugar and it just doesn't know what to do. In treatment programs, they often gradually introduce higher calorie portions into people's diets to avoid issues resulting from taking a person on an extremely low calorie intake and suddenly stuffing a bunch of calories into the mix. That alone can cause problems. I'm done.

>> No.9309333

Is your exercise mostly cardio? Try weight training. More muscle is supposed to equal more metabolism.

>> No.9309374

Here's a page that somewhat goes into the catabolic state and what happens when a patient immediately starts eating, mentioning that nutritional deficiencies often do not manifest until after refeeding begins. (This has to do with the unique metabolic state of an anorexic patient.) It's going to be a bit hard, but you are looking for articles written more by professionals and medical doctors, not from recovering ED patients.

It's not the greatest article being a blog, but it does go into the fact that the metabolism of an ED patient is fucked. Metabolic problems are wrongly associated with only bulimia.

>> No.9309378

This is also a good point. Many patients experience depletion of muscle mass since the body has been munching on itself for energy. A lot of patients have very poorly defined muscles including a weakened heart. Exercise, including strength training, is critical. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the weight is simply from overloading your body, especially if you are ingesting thousands more calories then your body is accustomed to. You may want to seek an expert.

>> No.9309386


Another one... look into re-feeding syndrome. It's not quite what I'm talking about but it shows exactly how dangerous just picking up and eating on one's own accord can be. It also makes mention at the end about how some underlying damage from ED, metabolic and organ damage, can only show up once the patient begins refeeding. If something really weird is happening to your weight, it might be time to admit to a therapist what has happened and seek an expert and nutritionist.

>> No.9309405

Seconding this, muscle tissue burns alot more calories than fat tissue per day. I think it's around 70 cals to 5 cals. So effectively having more muscle increases your metabolic rate.

Tonight, it was over the age of an actress on a TV show. I corrected someone who thought one actress was significantly older than another (they are near the same age) and the eyerolling and putdowns began. First, treating my contributions as nitpicky and silly. Layer, picking at my taste in movies during a subject change ("Well, I guess when you're that age that kind of thing interests you") and generally downplaying anything I might add to the conversation as if I were too silly and ignorant to matter.

If it was direct it would be one thing but so much of it is about body language and tone, and how they generally complain about "getting too old" for things, or about "Millennials," or about how they used to be thin/pretty/whatever, outside of these moments. It's like whenever I happen to bring up anything remotely related to age, all their middle-aged angst transfers onto me.

I have so many confused feels. For one, I really want this job that I'm being considered for. I need to get out of my current job so badly, I have no free time and the atmosphere here is shit.

On the other hand, if I get the new job I'll be leaving my friends in my local comm and moving to an area with a dead and crappy comm.

On the other other hand, I applied to JET and will find out this month if I'll be given an interview and if I make it if go to Japan in the summer. I really want to live in Japan...but If I get this new job it would be a really dick move to quit after working there for just a few months, and would not really look good on my resume.

Buuutt even if I did get to do JET, that would almost 100% mean breaking up with my boyfriend as he has no interest in living in Japan or doing a long distance relationship.

I know there are worse problems, but I was really looking forward to going overseas. I worked really hard this semester to be able to go. I wanted to wear lolita, and meet foreign lolitas. I was supposed to leave today.

I've been undergoing a lot of medical crap at the same time I've been studying. My symptoms have been the same forever, but nobody could identify the cause. Had an MRI around Christmas time and they found something freaky going on in my brain. Had to tell my insurer, and the university. University demanded a letter of fitness to travel. Doctor wouldn't write one - understandable. Travel insurance won't insure me until I have a solid diagnosis - understandable.

I don't want to deter you from JET, but is it really smart to move overseas if you have a serious medical issue? Also, JET pay is not great, despite subsidized housing (where you're unsure of what apartment you'll get). Plus, Japan is just another country in the world -- it's nothing to idealize. It's not kawaii 100% of the time. Have you been there? You may be placed in the inaka or you may be placed elsewhere.

Not trying to deter you. But I think a lot of people try for JET might have glorious Nippon dreams and then get burnt out on Japan and teaching after throwing away other opportunities when anyone with a college degree can apply.

Yeah but he doesn't know that and if I can keep looking around and decide if I wanna stay won't he be happier? He'd never find out so it's ok then.

>> No.9310763

It doesn't matter that he doesn't know that.
Any relationship without trust is worthless.

Leave him, go ride the cock carousel, sort yourself out and then search for a relationship.

>> No.9310768


Well he trusts me and he's too good of a guy so I trust him trust really isn't broke at this point

>> No.9310774

Yes it is.
Trust is directly tied to truthfulness.

I know you're probably a troll, but this is entirely scum behaviour.

Just leave him, be honest, go ride the cock carousel and only get into a relationship when you can go without window shopping.

>cock carousel
do you have experience with that?

>> No.9311533

Thankfully, no.

But if you're going to be doing it, you need to be in a relationship where that is entirely okay, or not in one at all.

If it helps, the cells do secrete fluids that moves from the uterus up through the tubes into the pelvic cavity in an unblocked, healthy tube. I can't find a name so I assume it's interstitial fluid.

>> No.9311780

Yeah, from what I read, a steady dose of SL might increase such fluid production.
But I can't find anyone who's tried it.
