The Place to Go for Emotional Support

That’s something, I guess. But be aware that marijuana can be addictive, and it certainly won’t help you overcome your problems in the longterm.

It’s tough not having anyone you feel you can confide in, but it’s good that you’re getting it off your chest here.

Whatever you do, don’t do drugs, or start any sort of addiction. That could seriously screw up your life. While it might feel like your world is collapsing because you’ve hit a rough patch, it’s not over yet. I’ve been there, and I know it can feel pretty hopeless sometimes, but it isn’t. Keep fighting.

You want to be able to look back years from now, and feel relieved that you didn’t get addicted to drugs. You don’t want to look back with regret on the decision that ruined your life. If you’re depressed, that’s really not a good time to be experimenting with things that could harm your health, because your judgement isn’t what it would otherwise be.

Don’t give up yet. Focus on the positives, even if there don’t seem to be many. It can be painful to keep a secret about not believing the same thing as your parents, but remember that you only have to hide it a few more years (I know, it seems long, but when you look back on it, it won’t seem so bad) and then you can finally be true to yourself. Just don’t destroy yourself in the meantime or you really won’t be able to face yourself.

There’s no way God could create someone who is attracted to the opposite sex, and them send them to hell for it. It just doesn’t make sense, and it’d be incredibly sadistic. It certainly sounds to me like you’re bi, so at least you can still have a romantic relationship with a girl, and not have to just pretend to like girls for your parents’ sake or get in a fight with them over liking guys (unless, of course, you do want them to know at some point, which is fine too)…

I quite like the sound of Middle English.

Black Country or Brummie mate?

Black Country - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdotLN6e4rQ

Brummie - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IGckWsXvJ8

Don’t ever get them mixed up mate - they’ll go on for hours about what an insult it is, how the other is shite, and how their’s is great (or grayte mayte 😉)

😃

I love the Brummie accent…heck, I love almost every accent, lol.

I think Duracell was referring to the actual language, though. The one good ol’ Chaucer spoke and wrote in.

Yeah, I used to have an mp3 player with a few audiobooks and some music on it. It allowed me no Internet access whatsoever…(not to mention that you can’t type with it, so the Internet would be useless on it anyway).

There’s Hard Rock, Punk Rock, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Soft Rock, Pop Rock, Country Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative… Rock is a bit of an umbrella term.

I spent 45 minutes shovelling the driveway this morning, and now it’s snowing again, with snow forecasted for four different days next week. Gotta love Canada.

If you ever want to talk about the whole God/religion thing, shoot me a PM. I also went through a period of extreme doubt, including a few months of (secretly) identifying as agnostic. During that time I really dug into the meatier questions, which eventually convinced me to become fully Catholic again.

I wish I could give you a quick run-down in one forum post, but I’m afraid there’s too much to talk about for that to really help…

Agreed, but please try to follow that advice whenever you feel that people are having fun at your expense (or even when they’re not having fun). We aren’t all out to get you.

I most certainly “have” been trying yet I am only as human as the rest of you. I know all of you aren’t but there are some that don’t always paint a positive picture of the whole.

😉

Wait, you’re only as human as the rest of us–but the rest of us aren’t human. Things are finally starting to make sense… 😉

I’m starting the “quit smoking” process today. Anyone here gone through it want to share your thoughts on your challenge? I would think that knowing what others went through could be very helpful to me on all fronts.

Thanks.

I gave up cold turkey and put on so much weight I became practically spherical.

But cold turkey is so good! Especially in a turkey-stuffing sandwich. Mmm…

Fo, I think the only possible response to most of your posts is Warbler’s famous line.

If you’re feeling that everyone’s antagonistic towards you and doesn’t like your behaviour, there’s a pretty good chance the source of the problem lies with you and not us.

You mean the same warbler that resides here? The one that has been the subject of attack and been the attacker himself? You’re saying he never was a problem? The same warbler that just made the gas-light post above this one?

I just want to understand your statement because it would seem your implying that warbler’s advice you suggest I take was said by him because he’s a positive forum member all the time and was never a burden to anyone elses discussion here.

You’re saying nobody on this forum was EVER a problem in any way, shape, or form, ever?

Of course I’m not saying that. You’ve been a bit of a problem lately (as in the last year or so). Of course there have been others, but few as persistent as you.

You have your good moments, but constently playing the victim got old real fast. If you stop acting like everyone’s out to get you, we’ll all get along a lot more nicely.

The fact that it was suicide makes it even sadder. 😦 It’s upsetting to think that there are people out there who feel they can’t share their feelings/illnesses and never get the help they need.

It seems like I’ve been getting music faster than I can listen to it all (it’s not your fault, I keep buying stuff!)… I still don’t know your newer songs well enough to comment on them individually. :-\

I only just added your last CD to my digital library today…I can’t keep up! I’m looking forward to it, even though I still have over 2000 songs on my computer that I haven’t even listened to yet…
