Anon, it sounds like you're living with borderlines. A lot of that is blatant bpd behavior, it's infectous because it affects how you perceive things emotionally, have any of you ever decided to go to therapy? It's a very dangerous behavior, especially with the splurging and destruction of property and inability to be at all rational.

Your parents being in inaction, your brother being an emotionally unstable aggresive manchild is what made me cock my head back. If you're still here do me a favor and check this out:

https://www.reveddit.com/v/BPDlovedones/

You'll definetly see behavior from the description mirroring your situation. It sounds very toxic and I'm truly sorry you had to deal with it, there's so much emotional and mental scarring dealing with people that sabotage even themselves like your dad. There's never any responsibility, it's like a feedback loop of negativity that won't shut off, do more research, even if they don't take therapy you should, because you're better than this.

There was once a music thread in here. It's time for it's revival.

Share your personal theme songs!

(Mine if you're ever curious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KF_6E7AfJ0)

First picks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pug7eKPcRb4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fa0tFkEREE

These song really puts the cherry on top of the cake that is the Metroid franchise on Gamecube/Wii. They gives not only a sense of trouble during the final boss fights, but also adds a feel of utmost urgency to the situation.

Coupled with incredible sound effects, these songs really adds the last ingredient into a video-game to make you slide at the of your seat while you dive into full immersion mode.

Bonus pick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxiE5Pz-62s

From Freedom Fighters, once again the final battle theme which has a really great Metroid feel to it.

I know i posted vidya OSTs, but you can share kind of music you like!

WELCOME NEW YEARS NIGGERS!!

As you saw and experienced, this board has been gone for nearly half a year along with the site, so letting it all out during the holidays last year must have been difficult in other places, hopefully the site doesn't die again.

So many stories to tell, or feelings to express, usually I wouldn't make a thread for this but since we've had such a big time gap and the feeling of being in a new decade is so intimidating for people, including those who've spent the end of an era in solitude, I say this thread is needed. Feel free to put your thoughts here and say what needs to be said, and what you're both looking forward or not looking forward to, just get it off your chest. If you're feeling suicidal, this is the perfect place to vent,

I'm looking for some help in making a new sticky with a bunch of mental health resources, government benefits, psychiatric links, wellness guides, dietary microbiome data, help lines and self mediation excercises well, I'll make another thread after this one, but feel free to pitch in. Your wellness, or at the least, the bare minimum mental stability is the priority for this whole board. You deserve better.

I was a victim of child abuse for twelve years. I lived in fear every day. Domestic violence was a common occurrence, and I had to intervene repeatedly to prevent my stepfather from killing my mother. I've also had to intervene in her suicide attempts. My mother, who, when I came out to her about his abuse after I saw a safe opportunity–he had just kidnapped my sister and fled to another state–ultimately chose him over both of us and took him back after two weeks. I was sort of adopted by another family in my teen years, and spent as much time away from home as I could. I got bullied and threatened a lot as a kid, and teen. I've hurt a lot of people for no good reason at all. There's the cliche "confusing love with violence" that I have come to accept as cliche for a reason: the people I hurt were those close to me, and I learned this from my stepfather. I sexually assaulted my girlfriend when I had just turned fourteen. I've attacked a few friends violently without warning.

As soon as I got to college, my stepfather kidnapped my siblings an fled again, my mom got evicted, and again it was apparent that long before they were no longer physically around me, I had been abandoned. As an adult, I've been a drug dealer and been in a lot of sketchy situations, I've also been raped–this led to the realization of my monstrous actions years before. I've told no one about either. I stayed in a haze of drugs and booze for years. I felt like no one knew me, and if they really did, they would hate me, so I pushed them away.

I wanted to die for as long as I remember but I didn't want to kill myself.

I've been in and out of therapy for years, medicated and unmedicated. I finally got some stuff that works (that isn't pot), but it's no longer as effective. I am on the maximum safe dose of my SNRI. I just got done doing the PTSD + borderline cycle, in which I am made anxious by a trigger, retreat, am overwhelmed by anger and sadness, will do almost anything to make it stop, and finally it's over after about ten minutes.

When you grow up around domestic violence, and have been violent yourself, you have a lot of fucking triggers. Hearing a door close in my own house, hearing dishes rattle, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>No one talks about the trauma that comes from being the bad guy and having a conscience.

People refuse to acknowledge their own capacity to do wrong themselves and tell themselves that it's hard to sympathize with wrongdoers to protect their egos. In my case I was both the bad guy and pathetic rather than overtly aggressive and predatory. The only girl I had any semblance of a relationship with, one day, rolled the dice and tried to kill herself by overdosing on meds while I was with her, but I had no idea. I should have noticed - her body was much limper than usual and she seemed half-asleep. I just held her, but not out of concern or anything. I felt a sense of power at her weakness and just basked in it. If I had realized what she did, I probably would have felt awful then and there, but I think it was far more fitting for me, the asshole loser, to have been totally oblivious.

Meh, somewhere between slightly strange and normfag. Didn't count up every single thing I'll admit.

Having a college degree today could rapetically give a -3, depending what it is you study lol. With the SJWs and all, damn true certain studies (like gender classes, liberal arts, braindead etc) does more damage than it does good. Might as well

I don't use mainstream social media or watch anime so I'm likely more strange than most the people on image boards these days. I get it.

Not having an alcohol problem? Only a +1? Seriously? Alcoholism is by far one of my most destabilizing problems! Almost killed myself drinking too much on several occasions, as well as being arrested before. No, not having an alcohol addiction should be a +5. Alcoholism also causes mental illness over time too. Ever masturbated with a 10mm Ruger while being drunk? Ever run out in the woods at 2 AM in the morning chasing wild coyotes while smashed, having your daughter chase and drag you back into the homestead? I rest my case with drugs and alcohol! Give yourself a bigger + if you don't use and abuse (if you do give yourself a big negative to be fair!)

I have had insomnia most of my life. I even used to go a sleep clinic when I was child and tried again as an adult.

I used to take Valerian Root, which helped a little. But one thing to be cautious of is that even herbal remedies can be dangerous for some people. For example, if you have a serotonin imbalance or take serotonin uptake inhibitors, herbal remedies that produce serotonin can be dangerous. Too many people push herbal stuff without realizing that they are not always appropriate.

I have some CBD oil produced by https://goldbee.com/ that I use to help me sleep sometimes. Seems to work.

What happens to an individual who does not think they're mentally ill, and uses logic and makes binary choice decisions (0,1) to guide themselves throughout life? I've had covid which brought, severe migraines, and fever. My headaches continued after for months. I am a Coder for a small firm. Woke up one morning and had a epiphany. I don't want to share what that was but my behavior changed immediately. I continued working and my coworkers did not notice that my work improved. (Continued thread)

You seem pretty confused to me m8. I Never said anything about brain size. Culture is formed by more than just genetics and genetics can adapt to culture. I have addressed why I think the mental problems happen more in mixed individuals. Social and environmental. Generally These "genetic" illnesses are not so much genetic as they are Epi-genetic. Just calling it genetics is really just a way for poorly trained doctors to be lazy. They have failed to find a statistically significant correlation between any particular gene and schizophrenia. As I said there are genes that can influence the likelihood of an illness developing but this has to be combined with other factors. We can also observe the differences in health between pure bred and hybrid dogs. You can also watch this video for more information on how mental disorders can develop. >>15978

Well I can't say that there are none but I reckon that that it would not be nearly as much of a problem as it is in developed countries. ASD is a spectrum of symptoms that can have many different underlying causes. Trauma, Inflammation, poor intestinal microbiota cultures, too much exposure to computer screens and radiation, autoimmune disorders or any combination of these. A primative society has fewer of these factors to worry about.

Well studies have suggested that hybrid offspring suffer from a number of social issues. They often have difficulty Identifying with either parents racial group and culture. I think this is more of a problem if the parents do not develop a close enough relationship with the child. This can also lead to social Isolation. I see this as something that may be corrected naturally as the child matures and undergoes the individuation process.

It has also been proposed that a parent of a hybrid offspring will feel less attached to it because it contains less of the parent race's genetic material and that the unconscious sees this as less desirable than a genetically similar offspring. This might be the case for some people but personally I like the Idea of spreading my seed across the different races, and there are studies that suggest that people may be unconsciously driven to mate with more genetically dysfunctional individuals.

Really there are already a lot a pronlems affecting families and children in the modern world. Race mixing adds another complication to the child rearing process. I see race mixing as having trade offs with contemporary mating. nothing outright malignant though.

Does anybody else get a sort of sorrowful longing for the days of yesterday? Like a part of you is missing and isn't really there. It's like nostalgia, but it's ethereal and very somber. It feels really good, but makes you wish you could embrace that feeling, because it's just radiating on you, but you aren't hugging it.

It's hard to explain, but it basically boils down to a melancholy heavenly sorrow.

I think I feel that sometimes, for me it triggers sporadically yet in specific situations, when i'm listening to certain music, or i'm watching a movie that relates to this strange feeling of nostalgia, though it rarely happens to be honest. Its one of the favorite things in my life because its one of the only "positive" feelings i'm able to experience, if not the only.

Don't we all?

This is natural as you get older. I'll tell you the truth, every decade will get more and more shitty. You are going to realize soon, if you have not already, the world isn't going to change for us or how we desire it to change. It never does and never will. Same goes for things staying the same, things won't stay the same forever. Times change. You either learn to live with it, or you can do as I have done and move rural, outside populated areas doing the best you can to maintain your lifestyle, individual freedom and sanity the best you can. But even out here, things still change, just slower perhaps.

Are there any other anons out there with SPD (Schizoid Personality Disorder)? I have yet to come across another person that at least thinks they have it, let alone is sure of having it.

Generally speaking, it is a fairly rare disorder, and I'm starting to think it's a meme altogether, but my therapist said it's what he would describe me as, apparently, so I stick with that diagnosis.

It would be great to have some insights on this, anons, any help is appreciated!

I'm fairly convinced it's a meme, these symptoms are so vague, I feel like anyone even slightly social awkward could have it.

Also based on this, I'd have it. And I'm not mentally ill, that I am sure of.

Maybe these characteristics are very exaggerated in Schizoids or something, I don't know…

Kinda off topic, but I've been thinking, Im probably far from being a schizoid, while I thought I was close to, so what you're saying makes some sense, because apparently Schizoids are devoid of wanting to have relationships and social interaction in general, when in my case I want and I try to get to it, but always fail, for an example, among other things, they do seem like something any "normal" person could feel. Recently I read about BPD and it is pretty relatable too, but I guess you could also say it's not a mental illness huh

And I know self diagnosing is fucking stupid, but just the idea of going to the psychiatrist/psychologist fills me with overwhelming anxiety, especially because I already went to the psychiatrist once and it didn't go very well, I opened myself up, and it felt like the world fell apart on me, I started crying in front of him and all, in the end he prescribed me sertraline and risperidone, which I didn't take, well I took risperidone once, a certain night and almost had some kind of suicidal panic attack because thoughts were going repeating that risperidone would damage my brain and I would stay like that forever, when I finally fell asleep after battling with my own stupid mind, after I woke up I threw the the pills in the trash in the path home I was telling myself I would commit suicide that day, planning it and all, but well, as always, i didn't go through it, I just had a panic attack later in my room and cried a bit more to sleep. This happened last year, in October, or September, I'm not sure… Before then i already had appointments for therapy but never actually got to them, always avoiding it. Sorry for any mistakes, I'm very sleepy and English isn't my first language

I think I might have this, from what Johnny Neptune tells me about it. But others have warned me that excessive alcoholism can lead to the same symptoms too, and if there is one thing I am it's a long-time alcoholic!

How do you 'feel' empathy?

People make it sound like I'm supposed to have some kind of a sensation in my body when being empathetic. But I don't share any connection with other people on a level that would allow me to feel what they're experiencing. Am I reading too much into it?
