There's a non-relenting expectation for you to be "normal" in this world. If you don't meet that expectation, then that's too bad. I feel like people just expect you to be normal. They don't expect anything less. If you don't turn out in an agreeable way, then you've simply turned out to be that person that no one can relate to. It sucks not being as outgoing as anybody else is, and not as confident in everything you do. It feels as if you can't start living a true, significant life without meeting particular requirements, which is true to a certain extent I suppose.

There's a sort of weird irony in the fact that, in order for me to have a future, I must do everything in my power to avoid thinking about it.

I love Society. It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.

If I could have more than three drinks without throwing up, I'd skip eating this month and buy a ton of booze. It's the only way I can see living until the new year. I need to be gone. Obliviated. Out of my goddamn gourd. But I'll just puke it all up before blacking out anyway, so what's the point? Is there any way to induce a coma that can't be construed as an attempt to kill yourself? I don't want to ruin anyone's Christmas.

Mm that's bad, you could start with something light & cheap like a white wine spritzer & work up, aim for a little buzzed, something to take the edge off.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I have vertigo, so I'm already about 3 drinks ahead of everybody else. The dizziness and nausea outpace my inebriation, so I end up puking before I'm even good and drunk. And I'll spend about 12 hours on my back with my head spinning instead of passing out. I can enjoy one or two drinks, but I can't really get drunk.

I fail even at alcoholism. All I want is to get out of my own head for a bit.

I always had the same problem. Not just with alcohol though. Everything. Before I started smoking, two puffs off a cigarette would make me sick enough to vomit almost immediately. A couple of wine coolers made me feel horrible.

It wasn't caused by vertigo though. I just had a really ****ty tolerance for anything like that.

I did smoke for a few years (God, I miss that). Anything that plays with my mind (like marijuana) is bad, bad, bad. It triggers all kinds of horrible things. I won't touch any of that stuff. I'm even afraid of medications.

Having nice female friends who I easily get on with and being able to have convos and laughs with random beautiful women, but not being able to take it any further. Had a lovely convo and laugh with this young woman who looked like a cuter, sexier brunette version of Scarlett Johansson the other day, and that's where it ends! lol

With my mental afflictions taking an increasingly large cut from my mental framework, I actually want LESS hours at work maybe 20 hours a week max.

I don't spent a whole lot. I have enough money to pay most of my expenses. I just no longer care to participate in the virulent culture that is the working world anymore.

Nothing changes no matter what job you have. Gossip ensues, social groups form, co-workers dillydally, supervisors bark orders rather than do anything..... It has all become very tedious to me now and mentally, I am just done with it.

I would like to pursue some interests eventually but as it pertains to working a typical 9-5 job, that ship has not only sailed but capsized as well.

We haven't lived in anything remotely close to "real" since the turn of the century.

That dog has been yapping and whining since I got home two hours ago. Again. It's annoying but I also feel sorry for the poor thing. I hope the owners at least take him out in the middle of the day. Maybe they just stick him in a crate and forget about him. He sounds so unhappy.

I'm overwhelmed. I have too much going on. Dentist in the morning, then dog goes to doctors in the afternoon for her seizures. Then I go to my doctors on monday to find out my blood test results. I just want to sleep but my body wont let me.

If it is a puppy, they do that whether their circumstances warrant it or not. They hate being alone. You could give them a huge room with a lavish puppy bed and they'd still do that if they were alone.

I want to both delight and despair of this malaise. In part because of telling someone about it and their response was so positive, like I can do anything in the world and all is right. But.. I know everything may not be right, right now. Maybe I'll just document this moment and think that anything is possible. New things. Yea, I didn't know where to post this so fudgesicles. Fudge me, fudge everything.

I hope it's not a puppy. They didn't get home until 8 p.m. last night.
