  1. This says "whatever". So, I'm guessing I can put whatever here. If you guys are against rape, could you consider signing the petition for amazon to stop selling the pro-rape books by RooshV. He teaches the best methods to rape, and how to get away with it. He repeatedly states how rape should be made legal. He teaches men how to efficiently rape girls. https://www.change.org/p/amazon-stop-selling-rooshv-pro-rape-books?recruiter=92007399&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink That ^ is the link if you would like to sign. Please consider signing to ban pro-rape books. No man should be taught better ways to rape and get away with it. These books are creating more victims.
  2. I know this question may be as old as humanity itself but I'm interested in your experiences. And I mean real-life experiences about you or others, not woulda coulda shoulda or pet theories.
  3. “The ship is safest when it is in port, but that’s not what ships were built for.” ~ Paulo Coelho No matter how many times you repeat those words, it is still there, same old fear that does not let you leave your comfort zone, fear that makes you fear the unknown. So you rather hide, unhappy, asking yourself, what is my passion, purpose of my life, but so scared to make a step forward and discover it, because once you left your old life, there is no way back, you are alone, on your own and there is no guarantee, no one to tell you not to worry, everything is going to be ok. You admire people who followed their dreams, reached their goals and you get confronted with a question “but what are your goals, your passion” and you get the same answer back “I don’t know”. So the answer scares you even more, because how can you not know, are you that stupid?! , how do other people know?! And you panic, because you know, you got only this one chance, and the time is running, so fast that you barely realise it, you don’t have any more time to waste on things you do not like, job that makes you unhappy, so you dig into yourself, looking for an answer, hoping that one day you will wake up and get an idea, idea that will make you discover where your passion lies, what your heart burns for. But you already know that it is going to be more difficult than that. You hear people tell you, you are a dreamer, that you lost a grip of reality, that you are looking for something that does not exist, that you need to settle with your life as it is now and accept it, be grateful for all the good things and blessings, think of the people who do not have a roof over their heads, no food on their plate. They talk to you, as if you are not already aware of all that. They make you think of yourself as spoiled, make you ask yourself “are they right”. But you know, within yourself, that no matter what, you cannot settle for this kind of life, that there is more to it. Well this is how i feel...and this is what i fear...i fear that i will never discover myself, my talents, my passion and that my answer to what i want to do will always be "i don't know, but definitely not this what i am doing now". It is difficult to start, when you do not know where to begin…
  4. I hope I'm posting this in the right place. Hi guys. I'm brand new to this. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder about 2 years ago, though they were reluctant to give me the diagnosis because of my age. Now that I'm 18 the diagnosis has stuck. I also suffer from severe BDD, OCD, Panic Disorder, and Anorexia. Thankfully my eating disorder has been in "remission" for a few months (after a long 6 year battle), but the BDD has become significantly worse. To the point of me not being able to function or leave my house Up until last November I was on Lithium, Seroquel, Topomax, Klonopan, and Xanax as needed. Unfortunately I developed a kidney dysfunction from the Lithium along with almost all of my hair falling out, so i was unable to continue the medication. After being taken off LIthium, I took myself off all my meds because I was convinced that it was the golden ticket to keeping my mental illnesses at bay. Yeah, doesn't make any sense to me looking back either. I have recently returned to treatment, but am finding myself with a huge dilemma. The psychiatrist I go to wants me back on Lithium, but I am not willing to take it. The reason being that it caused me acne (which wasn't really a problem for me at the time I first took it), but now my BDD is all about my face/skin. Also, I would really love to not lose all my hair again. I'm currently only taking Seroquel 200 mg and Xanax 1 mg x3 and NEED to find substitute for Lithium. I have tried Limictal (gave me a rash), Zyprexa (wasn't really on it for a long period of time and am terrified of weight gain). and I refuse to take Depakote because it causes horrific weight gain no matter what. Does anyone have any suggestions or success stories to finding a substitute medication for LIthium? Or have any success with medications for the conditions I suffer with? Any and all advice is appreciated! Thank you!
  5. I'm sorry if this has already been posted by others. Lately I've been noticing that I'm actually afraid to change my behaviour, because I'm worried people wouldn't like who I turn into, and things would somehow get worse. I want to feel attractive, sexy, happy, hopeful, confident, etc. All of these are completely normal and people are expected to feel that way about themselves. But, I'm scared that people have gotten used to me the way I am, and that all of these things would change me so much that I become a whole other person. I would LOVE to feel like a brand new person, but what about my family and friends? If I felt attractive, sexy, and like a grown woman rather than a little girl, I'm afraid that my parents - who I still live with - would sense it, and would think I'm out to have sex. Frankly I'd love to be having sex, but it would be really embarrassing if my parents thought I was, or was capable of it. At the moment I'm almost completely sexless, like a little girl. I'm not a virgin, but I act like a child. I FEEL like a child. Which is probably the way my parents want it. I doubt any of that made sense to you! My friends are very shy, awkward, and have problems similar to my own. I think we are all introverts, and we all like rather childish things. I feel almost trapped by the childishness, and I'm desperate to feel more grown up... but my friends are stuck in the in-between from childhood to adulthood, too. I'm scared that if I were to act more mature, they wouldn't know what to do with me. That they wouldn't like me or be able to relate to me anymore. I've tried talking to them about my feelings of self-hatred and that I feel like I need to make a BIG change to myself, but... I'm not sure how they'd react if I did. When I told them, we were all being honest about our own fears and feelings. We pretty much just listened to eachother and looked at eachother. And fidgeted. I love my friends, but it feels really awkward with them. I don't know if that's just because we all have problems... it probably is. But I feel quite... reserved with them. And that really bugs me. Of course, I'm not only afraid to change because of what other people may think. I'm scared that I wouldn't be able to keep it up, that I'd be fake, that I'd just be lying to myself and others about who I am. I'm scared to feel sexy and attractive because then I might want to have intimate relationships. And that would make me feel very, very lonely. I also have this strange belief that I must act the way I look. I feel ugly, so I can't behave as if I were pretty. I look like a kid, so I can't act like a woman. Etc. Thank you for reading my thread!
