I have really bad insomnia! Is there anything I can take to knock myself out? Tonight I already took 50mg meclizine, 50mg unisom, and 10mg ambien. I also took a dropper full of ashwandagha. I'm also on lamictal, latuda, baclofen, and lyrica. (I have fibromyalgia and bipolar type 1.) I wouldn't mind being up most of the night so much if I didn't feel aimless all the time. I'd like to work on music or do the dishes but it's hard to focus or stand up. I've been spending a lot of time in bed. All I could handle today was a couple hours worth of errands...

I bought sleep tea blend at a local herb shop. I also bought an energy mix because I'm tired ALL the time. I also got licorice root and kava. I tried too many herbs at once and something interacted bad with something else. I was sicker than usual for a few days....so now I am afraid to try the sleep tea again. It has a variety of herbs in it though. It was probably the licorice root and kava that interacted, a friend said. Plus I mixed California poppy with the sleep blend. It might be okay...

How do you guys get good rest? I can't take passionflower or valerian btw.

Sorry for my bad english, I will try to write as comprehensive as possible.

Its pretty straight forward for me, until its not.

I fought hard to "make" something out of the hellhole of my life I had
(parents died, brothers and sisters in a psychic ward),
stopped doing drugs after they nearly ruined my brain and threw me into depressions,
had suicidal thoughts nearly every day (but never the guts to pull it through) horriffic nightmares nearly every night, lack of sleep ...
Couldn't find a job and made mostly some slave jobs back then.

Now I finished my education and got a certificate two years ago and I have relatively relaxed work now (compared to the other jobs I did!)
Met a girl after maybe 5 failed relationshits, and we are together since 5 years now.
She was... well relatively fat when me met to be honest.
after maybe two years in our relationship she started to work out, doing sports in the early mornings and lost really much of weight!
We wanted to marry next year, but...

I just got left behind by a girl for the 60th time, after months of dates and sex. I ended it before she could but that fling died a miserable death regardless.

Women just want to fuck. They don't want to date anymore. I'm not looking for some pie in the sky marriage and picket fence but holy shit it's so fuckig. Difficult to get a girl in the prime of her life (21-25) to commit and get a boyfriend for longer than fucking 6 months? I've fucked 60 girls- no. 60 girls fucked me and left me in the dust. I tried to date many of them came I tried to make them wait for a couple dates before any physical thing happens. A lot will never talk to me again the next morning. A lot will Keep fucking me but be detached. A lot will act like they're interested in me but they just want my dick.
I'm fucking broken and I can't take this shit anymore. I fully get why people shoot up schools, why Elliot roger went ballistic, why people blow themselves up and why people hang themselves. I'm honesty deeply on the brink of taking myself out and/or hurting someone else out of revenge for all this emotional pain I have.

I don't want to give in to the lifestyle of just casually hooking up and looking at the opposite gender as disposable but it's becoming clear to me that's the only way to retain my sanity. My innocence is dead, I walk around my job, my family, my friends as a shell and a ghost of my former self. Every girl that enters my life and leaves pushes me one step closer to blowing my brains out. Fuck feminism. Fuck hookup culture. Fuck MTV and fuck Instagram. Fuck me because I can't keep a woman.

Someone help me please I'm fucking alone I don't want to die but that's the only way out of this emotional hellhole.

Get yourself together man!
Just say no next time she tries to fuck you, and lay out that you're simply not after a simple laid. Then you can take things from there.

I'm with you buddy, I've been there. But when I hit your bump, I just continued to be bitter and angry and now I haven't had sex in at least a year. I'm still lonely and miserable, because I gave up. Someone is out there you know, it's basic fucking mathematics or something.

Throw out your TV, fuck Instagram and fuck all of those shallow people. If there is anything like a soul, it sounds like you have it. If you blow your brains out you've just left this piece of shit society one sound mind less without being who you are to improve it!

Don't give them the d, someone will probably be insulted, someone will be hurt and as it seems you have a way with the girls a lot will go on. But I'm sure someone will stay eventually, and then, you can take it from there. All this shit will probably just feel like some distant memory by then.

I see most people asking for advice regarding break ups, are on the rejected side.

no one ever breaks up with someone they like because of the odds.
there is a girl I have been going out with for some time (we knew each other for years). we have been flirting for years and she complained about her bf all the time to me. I spent a lot of time ignoring her because of that bf. for me, she wanted a beta orbiter. the flirting got pretty strong, we made out once, she broke up with him one week after that. I don't want to make this too lengthy, but she tried to manipulate me and told me lies plenty of times. I started really, really liking her. she was very passionate and beautiful, probably the prettiest girl I have been with.
however, because of all that manipulation thing she tried to do with me, some childish stuff she did like rejecting my offering to go out because I was busy the time she asked me out and whatnot, tons of lies, being selfish as hell while pretending to be selfless... I broke up with her. even though I still liked her. I saw too many redflags. I couldn't see myself being with someone I didn't trust. she stressed the hell out of me everyday.

I felt immense pain with that breakup. even though I know I did the right thing, I wonder how the fuck you hardly see people going through the same thing. breaking up with someone they like. THIS FACT makes me ask myself if I did the right thing, specially because I feel like I will never be with a girl as pretty and that liked me as much as she did.
now I'm dating another girl, she's much more mature and nicer and I feel I can trust her. sex is better. we don't fight. I barely get stressed at all... but the same happens for every other emotion.

I don't even know what advice I'm seeking anymore. maybe the answer is just keep looking for someone else? swipe on tinder, meet more people? I'm so tired of this. really tired.

I started dating a girl and tgen went to break up with her two or thrre times during thw first few months of our rational. She always burst into tears and begged me not to leave her, so I stayed. I felt sketchy about her for the majority of the relationship and ended up finding out that she had cheated on me for several months with her manager at work.

I knew deep down from the draft that we wouldn't work out, should have just stayed away from her. It definitely sucked more staying with her and finding out the hard, absolute way. I'm such a depressed mess now. God why did I screw up everything??

As the other guy said, if people dump someone they like it means they're usually doing it on their terms and before the drama and bullshit reaches as high a level. It happens but there's less drama. If you barely hear about a lot of breakups, they just quietly happen that's good.

If god were real the answer would be "You didn't". You found out she cheated and are not with her. Sometimes you can do everything right, or at least make the best decisions with the information you have and still get fucked over. It's life, look at what you could have done different WITH THE INFORMATION YOU HAD THEN that is not absolutely stupid and then learn from it. Move on and be better/smarter.

This is going to be long winded, and I greatly appreciate any sort of perspective or advice received. My situation isn't a common one, and I'm praying someone here can relate. It all started a few years ago, when I was diagnosed with a skin condition called Rosacea. It's an inflammatory skin condition that causes my face to flush and burn, much like the picture. However, mine is highly related to anxiety, and I have developed a panic disorder around it. I can go from looking normal, and then in the next minute be red as hell and having a panic attack. I've withdrawn socially because of how tired I am trying to stop it from occurring. If I have plans for the day, I make sure to get up just an hour before, as my face is less likely to flush early in the day.

Well anyways, because of this condition I can't see myself doing anything. It's caused so much damage to me mentally. I've had girlfriends break up with me because they couldn't deal with the lifestyle I built around managing my rosacea. I can only stand to be in a job for a few months at a time before I can't handle the mounting anxiety of making sure I hide this condition from my coworkers. Luckily, I can find physical labor in the summers that lets me be mostly alone, and I do Mechanical Turk in the school year to make money. College is a nightmare as well. I have a presentation months from now and I'm having panic attacks thinking about it. Long, busy days stress me out, because the longer I'm awake the more likely I will get a flush reaction, almost to the point of inevitability anymore.

I can't make a decision about my life. The military is out of the question because of psychiatric care I received after I had a mental breakdown a few months after first developing the condition. I'm in school now, but I show up and duck out as quick as possible. I've thought of work-from-home careers, but those are a pipe dream. I have to start living my life despite this, and I want to take the first steps in becoming a functioning adult. I have to break out of this mental barrier that says I can't be a part of society. I have no idea what I want to do though. I'm thinking at this point, picking s…

Also, OP, I know this might seem a bit lame but I made a thread on here about trying to improve my life (you can see it a bit further down)

I used this image. I look at this picture once in a while to remember that even if my face looks like a baboon's arse, it's still best to laugh and enjoy life. If I do have a red face, I might as well have a smile to go with it. At least people might remember me for my smile instead of my redness.

mid 20s male here. How do I get over my abandonment issues?

I've dated a lot of girls, but I'm always quick to ghost them over the smallest things- sometimes they'll just say something regarding other guys I don't like, and I won't say a word or cause drama, but I'll just never ever contact them again after that instant.

I also have codependency issues, the girls I've been most attracted to have had some self-esteem/hating men/previously touched by daddy etc. issue going on (i normally find this out a couple months into seeing them). How do i get over these as well?

my end goal is a relationship with someone I'm mentally, emotionally and physically attracted to.

I just have this feeling, that if I cry I'll be able to reset and turn everything around. Just like two hours of desperate crying, get all this fucking misery out of my system, roll around somewhat in pity and then.. Awaken.

But I can't, I'm so close, I might scream but I just can't fucking cry man!
Maybe I just need to get some likes on my instagram-account or something, and that'll make me feel validated and appreciated for a little while.

Hello all,

I would like to use this thread as a way to hold myself accountable for my daily life. I want to better myself, get rid of bad habits and be productive instead of wasting away and going nowhere.

I don't have anyone to talk to about my situation, so that's why I'm posting on here. Hopefully I'll feel more determined to be productive if I tell people on here about it. Maybe I'll even get a conversation going on how to change your life.

Anyway I doubt this will work and if this isn't allowed then by all means delete it. Good luck to anyone who's in the same situation. You're all welcome to use this thread for the same reasons as me.

Well I'm glad that you're keeping this all in perspective. I'm curious what sort of goals you settle on for the long term. As is you've got some good perspective so keep at it. Even though its small you're building. And as you build up that foundation you'll be able to step towards bigger and better things.

I'm keeping an eye on how this is going. And the whole main goal of bettering yourself is solid. Now you're getting near the end of that first week. So it's gonna be time to settle into those big goals soon. Anyways, keep updating I'm going to keep checking on this.

Hey OP i started using trello (a type of project manager) to sort my problems out and set short term/long term goals. It really helps when you have something like that staring you in the face.

I also really got into web design for awhile and I completely stopped playing video games. Try and do at least one productive thing per day and soon everything will fall into place.

Thanks again for the support. Building a foundation is a key element of lasting success, I think. And that's what I'm trying to achieve in these first weeks, because I think it will be important for when I go through a tough time. If I have a good foundation, hopefully I will be able to fall back to that if I lapse, instead of back to square one.

I realize I don't have any really big goals at the moment. My main "bigger" goals are:
  • Eliminating bad habits (procrastination, bad posture, bad foods, etc.) i.e. being mentally strong to stop myself doing things that aren't good for me
  • Creating and upholding good habits (educating myself, being fitter, having more willpower etc) Generally being more productive towards the things I want

Are there any "big" goals I should aim for?

Very true and very well put as well.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've found in the past that setting specific endgoals and deadlines doesn't really work for me. For instance, before I go to bed, I'll write down 5 things I must do the next day. Usually I'll end up doing 2 and be satisfied with it. Or I'll try one, fail, and disregard the other 4. It's strange, it's like my brain automatically starts to look for reasons NOT to complete the tasks.

I like the positive perspective dude. I can't give you any big goals to be shooting for. Its like I don't know where you want to go with your life. But you should set some bigger goals based on your intrests. That I can't quite gauge. So all I ask is that you try and keep step forward and keep us updated. It's good to see you still working at self improvement. I'm here and I'll be glad to hear you out through this process my man.

So, I've had people in the past tell me I'm depressed. Both my father and internet anons have told me this. 25 year old male, dropped out of college 4 1/2 years ago, currently work in security. Diagnosed autism makes me too "slow" for everything else.

Before I start, I'm not diagnosed or anything, but I took a couple of online tests that really spoke to me, even if they're not valid. Here are all the things that appealed to me on some level.

>Feel life is not worth living (NOT SUICIDAL, just don't see the point in putting in the effort. If you're going to be miserable no matter what, then why bother)
>Get stressed very easily
>Get depressed at the turn of each season, summer into fall and winter into spring (feel like I wasted time)
>Learning disorder as child and adult
>Have trouble remembering or concentrating
>Lost interest in things I used to enjoy (drawing)
>Live in Northern Hemisphere
>Feel like life is going nowhere
>Have difficulty making decisions
>Feel fatigued
>Feel a need to always change or move around, though I don't have enough money to do so

>how do you guys deal with it?
Lots of introspection and meditation. Not necessarily real meditation, just being somewhere quiet and thinking. I used to go for walks in the forest, personally. For me, dealing with my depression (which I still very much have but I feel like I'm over the hump and am in an infinitely better place) wasn't about doing anything. It was just a series of epiphanies where things sort fell into place.

Apart from that the only other thing I can suggest is that you see a doctor. My body can't produce enough of some chemical, dopamine or serotonin or whatever, to keep up with how much it uses. All the meditation and philosophizing in the world isn't gonna do much good if you physically can't help but feel like shit.

You know, for a while I really bought into shit like this. I would start eating kale and feel amazing, but then you build that tolerance and it doesn't affect you anymore. It seems like no matter what I do, no matter how much grass-fed butter i slap into my low-acidity coffee, depression is just gonna creep back eventually.

I feel like I know the cause, too. Yeah, my serotonin and dopamine are probably out of whack, but that's just a symptom of my problem. My big problem is life is pointless and it eats me alive. I envy the people around me because I wish the only thing i cared about was getting that raise or fucking that girl or collecting 'em all, it seems so straightforward.

First time I had to resort to advice like this. There's no one I can talk to about this.

Long story short, one of my oldest and best friends is in a relationship with a girl. We meet up a lot and something's blossoming between me and her. I am really into her and I can tell she's into me too. She keeps commenting on how she wishes her boyfriend was more like me, looked more like me, acted more like me, made her laugh as much as I do, etc. She's offered to come round to my apartment this Valentine's Day because she's in town for a college project and she wants to spend the night in my bed. My bro knows about this as well and seems okay with it, but I doubt I would be. I assume he knows I would never do anything like this to him.

Anyway, the thing is, I've been dry for 6 fucking years. No sex. Nothing. This girl is amazing, just my type, looks gorgeous, cute as fuck, and just seeing her makes me happy inside in a way I haven't felt in years.
What the fuck do I do? I can't fuck around with my boy's girl, you know? That's the bro code.
Then again, if she's more into me than she's into him, maybe we should have a long talk when she comes over on Valentine's Day.
But if she offers to break up with him for me, how can I ever trust her to stay with me?
I'm just really fucking confused right now. I've never felt happier because the thought of this girl just makes me feel so happy and good. On the other hand, I've known this guy for 8 years and I could never look him in the eye if I did shit behind his back. And the fact that I'm so happy about knowing this girl makes me sick to my stomach as well, because he's my bro and deserves his happiness.

I don't even know what my question is, I'd just like some advice from ANYONE on this problem.
If necessary I can elaborate more on the story, but this is the gist of it.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Just keep avoiding her one on one hang out situations and when in large groups of friends just ignore her and give her the cold shoulder.

I'll give you bonus points if you talk aloud about how hot other women are while in front of her.

Bro invited me to come round soon. Just me and him in a restaurant.
Should I bring it up? It's the first time I'll be seeing him in months without her present.

I would just not pursue it. The logic of her leaving one to be with another is solid and will repeat itself. The problem is that all women do this and if you always act logically you will be forever a spider monkey's butt. I am okay with this but it sounds like maybe you aren't. You could always wait until they break up; it doesn't sound like it's going too well. But that doesn't mean you should ignore chances with other women like you are probably doing right now for your bro's girl... I bet she loves having you on the hook.

As Sebadoh once said "im willing to wait my turn to be with you". I f its meant to be it will happen one day. But YOUR friend is so much more important than trying to make something happen between you and the girl. So ya go on with your life and maybe even communicate with your friend how you feel and that you dont wish to hurt him. it wil help you alot if you can get that off your chest maybe even make things clearer for you.

I can't really do relationships. I'm constantly on edge because I think the people closest to me are always eight seconds away from leaving and most of the time I end up destroying it myself. I either get too clingy and chase them off by trying to hold onto them or decide to cut ties before they can (which is great because nine times out of ten it's all in my head).

It's gotten to the point that I've basically given up on other people altogether. What the fuck am I supposed to do here?

people don't resent "being tied down" if anything they desire it more than just about anything else on this earth

they just resent the assumption that you should be the one to tie them down, because humans are superficial and selfish, attracted to partners they really shouldn't be with in the first place and disparaging toward the partners that would make them happy. They're fed bullshit memes by this poisonous American world culture that tells them it's okay to treat humans like tampax, throwing them out after wiping them on your bloody cunt. Disposable, without a second regard. They take after "role models" who tell them it's okay to shit on people without their consent because it looks cool in a Youtube video.

Or they get rejected by all of the above and turn toward terrorism or extremism. So many problems, nobody wants to try and fix them. They want to bury their heads in the sand and pretend all of that youth unemployment, suicide rate depression rate divorce rates... will vanish tomorrow.

It won't.

This probably has more to do with how you view yourself than anything else. I mean, just think about it for a second. Why are you always so afraid somebody is on the verge of leaving you? It's not actually because any of their behavior, you just read into what they do too much. Chances are you probably have a poor self-image, probably a low sense of self-worth, and low self-esteem too. The reason you always think they're on the verge of leaving is because you think they're getting sick of your shit, that your little quirks and intracies at their core, that you can't help but have (not talking about the fact you wind up getting clingy, we'll get to that) are some how bad enough to drive them away.

If that's the case, you probably wonder how it's possible you've managed to get close to this person or even any people at all to begin with, because you know deep down that you'd probably hate you or hate being around you in their position. You may also feel you're a burden on them a lot of the time but don't mean to be (whether or not that's actually true). This isn't because your personality is actually annoying or bad in anyway, but because whether you realize it or not, you don't like who you are as a person. Sometimes it's not easy to realize you feel that way about yourself, because you're coming at it from the position of seeing you from a perspective that's supposed to be theirs, but really you're just giving yourself an honest impression of what you think of yourself without sugar coating it.

The part about you getting clingy is how you deal with the insecurities born from your own poor self image and possibly even low self-worth. Because you lack control in dealing with your anxiety and worries doubled with the feeling of losing the person (again, losing control of your situation) you're close to, you try and take control back by clinging to them. You know it's a bad strategy, but it's the only one you're used to, meaning all other methods of dealing with the situation are totally out of your comfort zone. On top of that, it confirms your beliefs about how they view you as a person... the whole tim…

Sure makes a lot more sense than the fundamental nature of human relationships changing because now we're in "this day and age"

People are more alone than ever and their relationships are shallow and dysfunctional, that means something is wrong, not that that's what human relationships are now

People think they just coast through life not taking anything seriously and treating love like it's an afterthought or a toy but they're in for a rude awakening one way or another

Fuck. I think you're totally right. I'm kinda at a loss for words right now, you just gave me a whole lot to think about. Thanks man.

Thanks to all you guys as well, I got some really great advice and tons of shit to mull over. If nothing else I feel like I got a better understanding of what makes me tick and how to work with that to get what I want out of life instead of letting it determine what I can and can't do.

I'm currently attending community college in a small town of like ~80,000. I live with a roommate whose meh for the past year and a half. He switched colleges and goes to a university about 45 mins away, which he drives to.

I'm considering transferring to a different university thats 30 minutes away to enter this intense psych program this fall in a big city. If I do this, i'm not driving a half hour away to the city, i'm moving there. This is in the opposite direction of my roommates school so i'm assuming we'd no longer be roommates.

I'm 24 and didnt start school until 2016. Pretty much all of my friends are either in stable living conditions at this point (mainly serious relationships) or I wouldnt live with (into drugs and partying, not able to hold a job down or be serious, etc)

I guess I could swing living in a studio by myself but i'd be completely fucking broke all the time. I dont really know if I want to live with my roommate anymore, hes a decent guy but I dont think that living in the city would work for us, the school hes going to would be over an hour away. I'm also kind of sick of living with him.

So people who have done it, whats living completely on your own like? I've had like 10 roommates since i've been 18, I feel like I could be set to the point to live on my own (and kinda have to) by this fall

>tl;dr, potentially gonna be living alone for the first time, whats it like and is it hard?
