Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Brother broke his leg(fibula) at his girlfriend's place moving a shed and I had to get on him and the girlfriend to go the emergency. Girlfriend said it was just a sprain and wanted to continue watching movies? I've torn my ankle up before and I know what bad injury looks like. A bit pi$$ed off right now.

I'm going to eat a bunch of chocolate and see if it removes the feelings of ****ness, existential horror and suicidality I'm dealing with today.

you have to eat a lot for that.

not that long ago I ate chocolate and noticed that it did actually make me feel better. I thought that was just a myth.

^ no quoting thread. It tends to make me feel better eating chocolate because I seem to be sensitive to things like that. Probably because my brain has 0 oxytocin generally. At the moment though I have way too much anxiety for it to have as much effect.

we should probably start farming happy people and inject their various fluids to get their happiness.

Yeah, no more "communities" for me---particularly ones that relate to crap that I'm interested in or curious about.

My brain keeps telling me that I miss him. But I don't miss him. I miss the chemical my brain produces when I see his face, which then in turns feeds into the addictive fantasy I have of him inside my mind. I don't miss him per se. I just miss that chemical reaction. I know this rationally, but my mind can't stop pining for him. Urgh.

I can't seem to be happy no matter what my life circumstances are. Single, coupled, here, there, working shtty job, working good job, unemployed.

I am so depressed.

How does life just feel this bad? I feel so terrible all the time. I get relief during that brief transition period when I go from one status to the next... but it's fleeting and then I'm back to square one. Because nothing ever fcking changes.

You know what would be nice? If there were a single part of my life that worked. If I had a healthy body. Or if I had a healthy mind. Or if I were attractive enough to date and maybe someday have something resembling a family. Or if I had a family who could support me. Or if my friends could help me. Or if I had enough money to pay my bills. Or if I could walk down the street without worrying about being attacked by a bigot. Or if I just plain had a ****ing reason to live. But I don't have any of that. I don't have anything at all. And it's really ****ing unreasonable for people to expect me to keep on living when I have nothing to live for.

For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?

I sort of miss the excruciating times. Lately I'm swimming in a kind of vague muck that's like an emotional limbo. I can't even describe it. I don't even have the desire to describe it. At the same time I'm acutely aware of the passage of time and how relatively little of it remains. I used to fantasize so intently that my body would involuntarily enact what I was envisioning. I looked weird, I'm sure. I still do it sometimes but it only seems to make me agitated so I stop. I haven't slept more than three hours in a night in years so I don't even know what I'm trying to say. I wish I was a musician. Or something. I could lose myself in it.

...you gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

Rationally, I know this can really only go one way but the irrationality of fear makes me want to not acknowledge it.

Feels like friends and family lost respect for me due to me not being able to relate as far as relationships/ intimacy. People will look down at you for that. Not seen in the same light as others. Which is understandable. I'm missing something that means a lot to them. Something that has had a huge impact in their lives and that has helped them mature, I'm missing.

Life: that thing where God takes all your worst fears and forces you to experience them.

What was I afraid of growing up? Being homeless, crazy, ugly, unloved, alone, in pain, despised. Why did I get none of the things that I wanted, and all of the things that I feared? Where's the justice in that? Rhetorical -- there is no justice; but I can't help feeling the injustice all the same.

If I'm still around on Boxing Day, it'll be a Christmas miracle for sure.

For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?
