Sorry to change the topic, but lately I’ve been alternating behind stressing over the tiniest things and feeling accomplished over the tiniest things. I know I’m not psychologically normal (or at least I assume, no formal diagnosis) but this is just ridiculous. I’m gonna focus on my newfound productivity through my medication to get things done. It’s not new medication for me, it’s just it’d been ages since I’d taken it (willingly stopped, and now requested to start again after a year of sloppy work ethics) and I’d forgotten how useful it is. The stress isn’t due to that though, as I had it before taking it.

A minor gripe in the grand scheme of things. Still, I wanted it off my chest.

It makes me happy knowing that you trust the rest of us enough that you feel comfortable to share such things.
Sorry, but I just thought you would feel better if you knew that your openness improved someone else’s day.

As much as I hate to admit it, I feel more comfortable venting about personal issues here than on my private Discord server. I just hold you guys in higher regard.

That is a horrific proposition.

This, though my reasons probably differ from yours. I’m a fan of diversity; I wouldn’t want humanity to evolve into a homogenous race of unisexual androgynes.

No, that’s pretty much the exact same reason as me.

I took my medication for concentration and dedicated the day to working on my story and…nothing. Absolutely nothing. It’s really disheartening. This project has always been stuck in development hell, and I feel like the weight of expectations and too much planning has something to do with it. At least I came up with a few ideas I can implement next time I give it a shot. I might take tomorrow off since today, though unproductive, was so intense.

Also been having serious hand-washing addiction lately (it always stays there to an extent, but lately it’s out of control). And no, it has nothing to do with germophobia.

Well I just screwed up in a big way. And I was trying to be nice.
Here is the deal. I live with my parents. It is cheaper for both them and me.
Any way I have been bored, so I start doing things around the house.
It was a nice day so I decided to wash the cars.
The insides are vary dirty so I get out the shopvac
I vac my car my Fathers car and start on my Mothers car.
I move the automatic driver seat all the way forward so I can vac under it.
Then I try to move it back and it will not move. You can’t even get in to drive now.
I look up how to fix on line. I try what the video guy says but I can’t pull it off.
I have apologized to my mother and gave her my car keys to use until her car can be fixed.
But now I am just stuck feeling like crap.

Yeah, don’t beat yourself up over this. You made a minor mistake doing something good.

It bugs me when anyone names an edit " The ant-cringe" whatever . It assumes that everyone has the same opinion on what makes something cringe worthy . Maybe "My anti-cringe edit " would be a better way to title such things . But that’s just like , my opinion man . not gonna lose any sleep over it .

It’s also just so “current”. It just feels like the sort of terminology that’s instantly dated. At least the user who makes those edits swapped out their avatar to be less smug and punchable.

Sometimes when I’m watching TV or a movie, or playing a video game, I get this overwhelming stress that I might not be in the mood to fully enjoy the content. This easily snowballs into a self-fulfilling prophecy where I don’t enjoy the content because I’m too stressed about the possibility of not enjoying the content. As petty as it is it’s been killing me inside for the past several years. This constant overhanging doubt. It’s not always there, but it is there often enough to make a difference. Especially for rewatches. Today I tried rewatching a show I love and I couldn’t get past 7 minutes because of that stress. I’ll try tomorrow with my concentration meds.

My life is being held together by duct tape and Batman, and I am so sick of Batman (tried Lego Batman today and god it is nowhere near as good as the Lego games based on existing stories). Swap that with Star Wars hype and it’s 2015 all over again but with more awareness and I hate it. I feel disinterested in my writing, although I have started learning guitar, which has helped me keep busy. I do dabble in drawing from time to time, but hardly enough to even maintain skill, let alone improve. It’s either focus on everything or focus on nothing, depending on whether I take my meds. I don’t have anything to occupy myself because my usual hobbies are failing me.

Please send help.

Update: I tried watching the show again today (still without meds) and I got into it and binged it a bunch! Yipee!

Anyone else dying to go to a restaurant, or a movie theater?
I am so sick of take out and TV dinners.
