  1. Coffee is a miracle drug I adore it. I couldn't have it yesterday because of a stomach upset and i was back to the old me, clumsy, grumpy.... This youtube channel is run by a doctor and they say it's healthy! That's all the proof i need
  2. This was going to be a blog topic but I thought everyone might like to share some things they've learned and way's they've grown. I got to say, not all the lessons i've learned have been positive, but I'm sticking with the good stuff here, you don't have to! - I've come on in leaps and bounds in my anger management, I'm not constantly irritated anymore, and I haven't reached "rage" level in weeks, while i used to reach it every day or so - I feel far less uncomfortable around people now because I've learned active listening skills and realized I don't have to be amazing and charming and entertaining all the time (an impossible task that made me dread social interaction even more), people also like it if you listen to them and let them talk for a minute! I still constantly feel like i've messed up and said the wrong thing, but I say less now, so it happens less! - I'm getting a bit better at asking for help, but it's a work in progress
  3. I came across this quote. I think it's bull, I think that forgiveness is something else entirely, forgiveness is when you say "I know that you made a mistake and I don't hold it against you" and some people don't deserve forgiveness as we all know. Even if you told me i'd live an extra 10 years if i forgave certain people, i still couldn't, they just don't deserve it, it's like Captain Picard, if there are four lights there are four lights, damn it. The torture isn't going to make me see five lights.... well ok Picard ended up seeing the 5 lights but shush it's my metaphor ANYWAY i think the quote should be Acceptance is giving up all hope for a better past that makes sense to me, it's like Zeno's dog tied to the cart again, it is what it is, it won't change if we struggle against it, and yet we still do, and that's almost beautiful in a way that humans don't shy away from a lost cause, but it hurts us and hurts us and hurts us, over and over. If we decide to go with it it will hurt less, it doesn't mean we like it. And it's our choice, it's not something we do because a therapist can make us, it's something we do because we want to be able to live our lives as well as possible
  4. It's my experience in and out, upside down... i guess most of it is already in the ADHD criteria but some of it isn't and i tick every box... i hope it gets into the DSM, but then again ADHD is in the DSM and no one outside of the MI world takes it seriously :*(
  5. Being able to dry the clothes outside ha ha no, i like reading a book with my legs in the sun to get a bit of vitamin d If you could have any mode of transport from science fiction, fantasy or fairytale, what would it be?
  6. I never remember Cheese not being nice ever, I mean if you weren't nice I would assume it was just your pain talking (not that i wouldn't take what you said seriously, just that the not niceness of it i would put down to pain) but I've never had to do that with you and I've never seen you not being nice to anyone else either.
  7. Poetry is like music to me, i mean that 100% literally. For example i can't listen to poetry while music is being played and i do not understand how people do it, it is like playing two different songs over each other. Another example is, just how many of us (me included) have to listen to a song loads of times before even noticing the lyrics, I have to read a poem loads of times before I start to notice what it is about or what is mentioned... So I totally get why some people don't like poetry because it's like.. i don't know... like I can imagine what it would be like to just see a bunch of nonsensical words strung together seemingly randomly and supposedly deep. ^^^^ like that.... bad poetry kills me, like someone practising violin... and i imagine that if poetry isn't your thing then all poetry is bad poetry and equally painful... but good poetry is music
  8. my current thing of trying to beat this is i'm chewing a lot of gum... but if i go to the bathroom without gum i still somehow wind up eating paper without realizing it another thing i tried... did i mention this? I got scented toilet paper because it tastes awful, or the one with the "balsm" hoping it would make me more mindful and get me out of the habit or at least make me realize when i was eating and stop... nope it's sooooooooooooo annoying.. i'm going to feel like such a fool if i end up with throat cancer over something so silly and not even fun
  9. I don't eat sandwich cookies in a special way.. but i have a weird thing i do with digestive biscuits (a British thing?) where i turn them into sandwich cookies by breaking them down and mixing them with something (like milk) to make a paste that i put on the cookie and eat it. What is your desktop background a picture of? (this is not mine, i just thought it was clever)
  10. I [censored] and it felt goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood
  11. Ah I hate group work, one or two people end up having to do everything, assuming it's even possible to do everything since the workload is meant to be divided between everyone. I understand the importance of team work, but in your job everyone has to be there from 9-5, so while they are there they will presumably do something since they are there anyway, it would be very different working in that kind of team. If they are going to give people group work they should use an odesk/upwork style program where people clock hours and the people who put in 0 hours fail regardless of how well the final project was done, and the people who put in all the work get a little bonus considering it would have been better if they'd had help.
  12. I don't know.. not yellow anyway... hmmm warm colours, but i like to wear cold ones... hmmm... i like to wear bright colours anyway, regardless of whether they suit me if you buried a time capsule, what would you put in it?
  13. there are some non-GM meal replacement shakes available if that is your thing, and if you have time you can make your own
  14. Well you've had more interactions with this person than I, but even if you hadn't I wouldn't have tried to change your perspective. I hope you get some sleep soon, ❤️ take care
  15. I'm inclined to believe people's versions of events until I think that not believing them might be helpful to them, but you're welcome to think different Sometimes challenging people can be really helpful to them, who is expert on when to say what, nobody! Forums are great because you get different perspectives
