  1. It makes sense that you'd feel ashamed and guilty about this, but you don't need to let this ruin your life. This does not make you irreparably despicable. We have all done the wrong thing at times. On the spectrum of bad deeds, I wouldn't say this was necessarily any "worse" than the types of things most people have done at one time or another, just different. You didn't actually rape the dog or anything like that, and I doubt that it thought much of anything of the incident. Also, from a religious perspective, there aren't any sins that God is unable or unwilling to forgive. The only ti
  2. Interesting. The three hour average honestly sounds about right for me, admittedly. I often want to be more productive, but it's a lot easier said than done unfortunately. I thought it was just me. I work from home and set my own schedule since I'm self employed, which makes it even harder to avoid procrastinating unfortunately.
  3. While I'm currently single, I can say that I would not wear a mask with someone I was intimate with. Absolutely not a chance. I'm all for taking precautions and actually have a pre-existing condition myself, but wearing a mask during sex is a bridge way too far IMO. Personally, I wouldn't want to have any sort of close contact with somebody who refused to take basic precautions like wearing a mask while in public spaces. Though, wearing a mask while with only somebody you're dating is going much too far IMO.
  4. Honestly, people who refuse to wear a mask seriously piss me off, and I know someone who did not take precautions and died from the virus. The anti-maskers always talk about "my freedom" and all that, but getting it and becoming seriously ill would restrict your freedom far more than wearing a mask. I honestly cannot comprehend why some people have the idiotic attitude that the whole thing is a hoax, not that serious, etc. But the unfortunate reality is that it's often impossible to get through to these people. And telling them how you feel, as the manager said, would likely be of little effec
  5. Personally, I would only travel if it was out of necessity. I have asthma and often have to use my inhaler, and my parents are both older. So, we have all been extra-cautious during this. If you do decide to travel, there ae ways that you can greatly reduce your risk and actually travel relatively safely. Public transportation (e.g. flying, taking a train, or traveling on a bus) is best avoided. If you can, drive to your destination rather than using any sort of public transit. After you get to your hotel, disinfect high-touch surfaces, remove the bedding, and replace it with your own. Though,
  6. He may very well try, but it isn't going to get anywhere. If the basic institutions of the country are more or less intact, any attempt to do this would be quickly blocked. In the long run, I would not rule out the possibility of him corrupting the system to the point where he'd be able to do this. But we're a long ways away from that now, even still. Given enough time, it's possible he could get things to that point. But it's completely hypothetical at this point.
  7. He is absolutely and completely mentally unfit for office, no doubt about it whatsoever. The fact that he would take his mask off and knowingly walk around the White House spreading this contagious, potentially life threatening disease proves that he is a complete sociopath who has zero regard for the lives of others and lacks any semblance of human decency. He even went to a fundraiser when he knew he was infected! I just do not understand how anyone in their right mind could vote for someone like this honestly. There's no way that he's fully recovered and not contagious at this point.
  8. I feel like I have no value or purpose in the world really. I "work", but it serves no real meaningful purpose in the world, could be done by literally anyone, and is poorly paid. The only people who do the work I do are other people like me who are too dumb to make any progress in life. I really should've never been born. I'm just a burden on my family and society. I really am a complete screw up and an incredibly stupid, worthless person. I have a college degree, on paper. But really it's just that I must've gone to a shitty school where they actually mistook me for someone who has value to
  9. This has gone on for quite some time. It doesn't come up anywhere near as often as it used to, but I still have a fear of losing control and involuntarily spouting obscenities and involuntarily acting bizarrely. Possibly without remembering that I did it, which drives a sort of "Did I say/do that?", "Maybe I did", "No I didn't", "Am I just telling myself that I didn't though?", etc., etc. This sort of thing is extremely irritating, and it's very difficult to get a handle on once that thinking starts. The thing is that these obsessions/fears really have a mind of their own in a sense, which mak
  10. Yes, but not exactly the same thing. I am absolutely and utterly terrified of aliens, and it literally sometimes causes me to stay awake all night long. And all it takes to cause me to completely freak out is a slight sound or something of the sort. On occasion, I will literally leap out of bed because of a small sound even still, as an adult. Because the possibility of being abducted by aliens absolutely scares the living daylights out of me. Sometimes, I still actually look in the closets, check the shower, and literally look all over the house to make sure there's not an alien hiding s
  11. I recently had a terrifying nightmare involving demons, aliens, and all sorts of nonsense like that. Which I normally would write off as nothing other than a bad dream. Which is all that it was. However, it was like my unconscious knew something about myself that I didn't. Anyways, in this messed up dream, there was mention of me having an "epicanthal fold" (not exactly sure what the context was in the dream). I did not even know what that meant or anything like that, and I Googled it the next day simply out of curiosity. Then, to my surprise it turned out that I have it. I had no idea what th
  12. Sorry I didn't post back. I'm honestly not sure about these people. I talked to her shortly after this, and honestly she may have sort of gotten used to the idea of me not being straight. I'm not sure. Anyways, I said something about it sort of casually shortly after this, and she seemed to see it as old news rather than something to be angry about. And she hasn't been attacking me about it. For the most part, we have gotten along.
  13. Okay, I am not straight. I came out as gay last year, and it went horribly. Horribly meaning that I was told that if I "chose to live that life", that my own family, my own parents weren't sure if they wanted to remain in contact with me. My mother was the one saying these things, and I actually heard my Dad say "well you shouldn't think like that" when it she was on the phone saying that her bigotry against gays made her want to shun away (not in those words, just "it's kind of undesirable") or something of the sort. After this, my mother proceeded to abuse me and vowed to discard me and
  14. I have a prescription for 10mg adderall XR and one for 10mg adderall IR. It says on the bottle to take the XR in the morning, of course, since it lasts for 8-12 hours. However, the IR simply says take one pill every day. Is it usually most effective taking them at the same time? Because that's what I've been doing, but I was wondering if that was usually what people do. Or if people generally take the XR in the AM and the IR later in the day.
