Social anxiety but not really?

Hi /med/. I am trying to find information on this annoying af thing that I do, but I'm having a hard time. I am an introvert who regularly has issues (and by issues, I mean I completely freak out and ruin the vibes) suddenly dealing with a large group of people all at once, even if I have time to prepare. It's worse when I only know one or two people, but it's happened before when I do know everyone.

It's not social anxiety proper, because my concern is not that they won't like me or whatever. It's purely a social processing overload. This has most frequently happened in my personal life, but I have had moments at work where I've been forced to continue interacting with customers to the point that the only time I get away from it is just enough to go self-injure in the kitchen for a second.

This makes me sound like way more of a wreck than I am - I'm medicated for other shit (depression and anxiety; I currently take 100mg quetiapine and 300mg bupropion 24-hr release) so I'm able to hold down a cushy bullshit full-time job, I can afford my own place, I pay all my bills on time, etc. Like on paper, my life is in order. And in smaller amounts or in my current work setting, I'm fine with meeting new people. It's just when it reaches this tipping point of "oh shit, I have to process all of these types of data for how many fucking people???"

That said, the "other shit" that I'm medicated for has changed over the years. I mention it here in case it's actually a symptom of whatever is causing these social processing meltdowns. It used to be hardcore depression, then it morphed to more of an anxiety. Nowadays the anxiety is a lot more prevalent than the depression.

Am I just literally enthusiastic?

You're a nerd. The spectrum is made-up. They made it in 1993, based solely on the supposed work of one Nazi children's psychiatrist from 1940s WW2 Austria, who said some of the kids in his Nazi children's psychiatric hospital talked too much, and he used the word "enthusiasmus" to describe it, and no psychiatrist is ever wrong about anything, so once his work was "re-discovered" in the 80s, by one college student, the psychiatric industry had to integrate this new use of the word into modern American WHO-mandated psychiatry system.

That is the origin of "the spectrum".

There's zero biological evidence that selectively talking too much and being an oversensitive geek have any tangible connection at all with proper enthusiasm, where people are unable to use language.

It's a purely ideological connection.

Neurotic nerds and socially awkward people with self-reported quirky hang-ups are one of the main customer bases for psychiatrists, outside of the retarded community. The word enthusiasm being able to be applied to any of them interchangeably, with only a retardation specifier to separate them, is both a coding and billing time-saver and a hilarious in-joke within the field.

Spectrum life is becoming more and more common it is genetically being more dominant
Unfortunately the old gen is still alive and we have all of their slave mentality of "just interact is nothing bad" even when after a few hours feels as a crushing weight because communication is over stimulation
Soon enough though we will understand more And allow periods of small 3 min social breaks instead of cramming them into one big lunch break. Already in CA 2 tenmins are paid breaks so hopefully more states adopt this. Because when I've worked places that i cant break just to mentally cleanse I just won't last there. I'll get burnout and suddenly quit. Unfortunately most psyches these days are still old gen and if you aren't diagnosed when you're 4 it is like playing a game with them where they'll tell you three reasons you couldn't possibly be on the spectrum or downright ignore what you feel and tell you they've dxed you for adhd or bpd because there IS NO medicine for enthusiasm aside from Good old lady cannabis (sometimes) or a nice dark silent room with a heavy blanket on you to calm down mediate and actually process your feelings instead of what happens is excessive thinking which turns into social feedback loops of anxiety by being overly conscious

What are libido increasing substances with minimal psychoactive effects except for increasing libido. There are many drugs that function as aphrodisiac like GHB, MDMA, (meth)amphetamines, cannabis, alcohol are the ones I can name.

I tolerate psychedelic experiences very poorly as I have had 6 month episides of depersonalization/derealization from just a few puffs of weed

Viagra is not that usefil for me as I dont have erectile dysfunction just chronic abnormally low libido

Any suggestions?

Haven't told anyone this and it's been weighing on my mind like crazy.

So a year and a half ago i got genital herpes from a girl. Had an outbreak around my crotch, went to the doctor and she said it's most likely herpes (almost completely sure but didn't do an actual test). Refrained from sex for a couple months and haven't had an outbreak ever since. Never had a cold sore either. The doctor simply told me not to have sex when i have an outbreak.
I've had sex with different women since, most of the time with condom. A couple of times without though. Thought it didn't matter cause I've never experienced an outbreak ever since.

Started looking up info about it about a year ago and turns out you can pass it without symptoms (asymptomatic shedding). Ever since i've been feeling so bad. Every single time i smoke weed i get these negative thoughts about the possibility that i passed it to someone i know. I feel like i can't even get a relationship anymore.
What are your experiences? Can you really pass it that easy without symptoms? How do your relationships work? Do you always have sex with condom? Is it possible it wasn't even herpes but something else? (pretty sure it is though).
Internet provides a lot of different information.

I just had to get it off my chest cause it's been eating at me like crazy.

Hey, dude.

Sorry for not answering everything; I'm tired but I still want to help.

>How do your relationships work?
Tell people up front. Offer condensed information about it if they want it. Some people might not be interested. Plenty of people will still be. Your dating life is not over. Even people without herpes know that it's nowhere near as serious as it's hyped up to be. Consider the herpes thing a litmus test for people who can take two seconds to think.

>Do you always have sex with condom? Is it possible it wasn't even herpes but something else? (pretty sure it is though).
I don't, but I'm on antivirals and my partners don't give a shit. Also, condoms protect a lot, but the way that I tend to have sex, there's enough crotch-crotch contact that a condom is not covering the whole area (unless it's an insertive condom or something). FYI I just got out of a relationship (was not ended by the herpes) and in years of sex, they didn't contract it. I do have genital HSV-1, though, and that's less virulent.

I'm still amused I got herpes from getting head (which I don't even like) from my long-term boyfriend in a committed relationship, when I've had enough casual sex for a lifetime, including unprotected sex with assholes. I would have expected a karmic lesson but I guess not.

I think I may've done this deltoid shot too low. I don't even know if I hit the deltoid, maybe one of the surrounding muscles.

Is the efficacy or absorption of a vaccine going to be affected by a missed IM shot?

Warm Sensation in Butt/Thigh?

Hey /med/, I have made a doctor's appointment to take a look at this, but the soonest availability is like 2 weeks from now. So I figured you guys might be able to help me out for the time being, as my symptoms seem to be developing further.

Basically, I have been experiencing this warm sensation in my butt cheek/thigh. It began 5 days ago and it was just a thin band of warmth running down the outside of my leg, and it would come and go for a few seconds intermittently throughout the day, like someone pouring warm water down my leg. Now, starting yesterday, it has gotten stronger and wider, it doesn't feel like a single narrow band, it's more like radiating heat across my butt cheek like I'm sitting on half of a heating pad, and it is present for more than a few seconds, and seems to be more frequent.

Googling this has led to a handful of ideas, from Sciatica, to spinal damage, to a neurological disorder. I'm not terribly concerned right now because it isn't actually painful, but the feeling of an uncontrollable heating pad on one side of my butt is starting to approach 3/10 on the "annoyed for no good reason" scale.

So, yeah, any ideas? What it might be, what could I do in the short term to relieve it?

Thanks for reading!

99.9% of the time this is "sciatica" due to piriformis syndrome, i.e. the piriformis being chronically hypertonic and impinging the sciatic nerve, often due to improper gait or standing/sitting posture, which eventually leads to inflammation of the myelin sheath of the nerve, causing tingling/warm/cold/burning/numbness/weakness. do piriformis stretches, here are 3:

>the "pigeon pose" from yoga, making sure to keep your front shin perpendicular to the direction you are facing

>lie on floor on back. cross the sore leg over your good leg, shin on thigh, then reach through and pull your bottom knee up to your chest

>sit on a chair, cross one leg over, shin on thigh. keeping your chest out and chin out, lean forward at the waist until you feel a stretch in the butt area.

also you can use a foam roller (don't get the stupid gimmicky ones with bumps or grids, just get a flat cylinder), tennis ball, or lacrosse ball to massage the area, sitting on it tilted to one hip at a time.

also applying heat (my favorite is a hot water bottle) - can be electric heating pad, Thermacare patches from walgreens/walmart, microwavable pouch of beads or seeds or whatever, or even just some fist-sized stones heated up in a pot of water then wrapped in a thin cloth - to the area for 1 hr or more will help.

basically when muscles are tight, heat, pressure, and stretching will alleviate it. if after genuinely trying these things to relax the piriformis your symptoms do not change, then it could possibly be a disc or spine issue, meaning you would need to try chiro/pt and maybe ortho surgery, but this is very rare and wouldn't just appear out of nowhere in most cases

So I shaved the other week and didn't use any cream and had sex with someone.

And this area became sorta soft bumpyness.

I don't know if it's just been irritated from that, and a 4 day bender of masturbation and jelquing, or a combination of being on a groin fold and my job causes alot of sweat and grossness.

But I'm thinking I may have hpv?

It doesn't look similar to most the things I see on hpv and warts.

But one thing looks like a skintag, and the other part just looks like some skin irritation idk.

What do you think here? Cause there's no test for men who have hpv and I just moved here so I haven't gotten a doctor yet

I'm obviously gonna try and be 100 percent honest with a girl I'm just gonna start to see. But what kinda input can I get from you guys?

It looks small and hardly noticeable. Not just my penis, the bumps

Not 100% certain due to image quality, but looks like you gave yourself razor burn. When shaving private areas, it's advisable to use a single bladed razor. Go get tested anyway before you become sexually active again.

As an adult with the herp, unless you've been fucking unprotected a LOT lately it's probably not an STD.

HOWEVER, if they don't pop like normal zits and just sort of stick around I'd go to the DSS office around you for a free screening. It's a lot nicer to have medicine for dealing with outbreaks if it is what you're experiencing.

Oof, I'm 90% sure those are warts from HPV. Everyone's skin is different, but razor burn doesn't look like that. The skintag looking one for sure looks like a wart. You can find out by applying apple cider vinegar onto it. It will turn white if it's a wart.

I had the same thing on my shit once. More than once actually. I thought it was razor burn or pimples at first so I'd pick them off(don't do this) and they would bleed profusely. I'd mostly get them on my pube region. They are easier to see if you shave. Eventually I got one right on the side of my dick and I put ACV on it and a bandaid and it went away. You have a lot more in one area, I would go to the clinic and get some medication for it.

So im a 28 year old semi-functioning (independant [ha]) alcoholic who practices poor self-care (go figure i know). my teeth are fucked and getting them removed and replaced with dentures is a dream of mine, but to the point: i know i have a chronic gum infection that causes the sides of my mouth to swell (not visibly noticeable to onlookers but very noticeable when looking in my mouth) this causes me to bite my cheeks on occasion and is annoying. what antibiotics are good for this sort of infection? looking for some bullshit i can buy online for a bet and then take myself because i am trash. i'm sure any suggestion i get will be a relative shot in the dark and likely i wont have access to without a doctor but im asking anyway; cuz maybe, yaknow? video unrelated. but its a good song and i assume the guy is probably dead from alcohol poisoning or exposure so faintly related i guess.

So long story short I blew my nose the other day and ruined my right ear. The first day it was full of pressure and in lots of pain, now it's minimal but feels pretty full and ringing. Can't hear well in it but it's not completely deaf. Nothing works, has this ever happened to anyone before? How long does it take to take care of itself?
