I would rather have memory issues, but it's something not many would think of, it gave me bladder problems so I have to pee often, I used to go 5-6 hours without peeing, now I have to pee every hour or two, I usually have to pee 2-3 times before sleeping and not drink any water or else I'll wake up at 5am to pee

yea it gets bad dude. i only took it for a month (1mg to sleep) and when i started to taper i got these scary, dizzy headaches and brainzaps

i had moments in the middle of the day where my head felt tight and dizzy and i felt like i was gonna jump out of my skin/have a seizure. i felt this intense urge to just let out a massive scream to counteract the extreme discomfort and anxious feeling. it was quiet unpleasant

I think that I have suffered some kind of brain damage over the recent years, possibly due to depression/isolation, drug abuse, gas or lead poisoning, or head trauma, or some mix of these. My evidence is as follows:
>I have a much shorter attention span than I used to have, struggling to pay attention to movies or read books
>My performance in online games has decreased significantly. I can't win a game of league of legends to save my life, even playing at ranks far below what I used to play at.
>My taste has gotten worse. I used to enjoy watching art films and documentaries, and reading literature. Now I don't really enjoy these things, when I can force myself to pay attention and watch/read, I don't have much connection with it.
>I am much less funny. I used to be able to come up with jokes or replies to things that would create responses online or make people laugh in conversation. Now my mind is a complete blank and I have nothing to say.
>General increase in "brain fog" and lack of focus

Can anyone relate to this kind of decline as getting older? I remember seeing a study posted here a while ago that said depression/lonliness causes significant loss of brain function. I really think I am getting dumber rapidly.

Whenever I go outside and see all the wretches that inhabit my country, I don't understand how they can't despise themselves and hate every second of their miserable existence. Fat people, dopers, poor people, ugly people, old timers who are too stubborn to die. I just hate them all. Why do they have to take up my fucking space? The world would be so much more pleasing to look at if we could just purge all these subhumans. Why aren't they all depressed and on the verge of suicide? Why do they even bother living?

Very few people are gifted enough to be happy. Attractive people, rich people, most succubi. You would have to be trying to be depressed if you are one of those people. And I hate them too out of envy. Because the world isn't fair and I can't have it like them even when I'm trying.

I have heard love solves everything, like romeo and juliet and shit. "Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows, kill me with spites, for we must not be foes". This pretty much sums up the simp mentality of every guy in a relationshit. i always see people get strung along and provide for ungrateful directionless people. Every wrong of theirs they will right, everything they need will be done, everything they want they will get. It seems like slavery to me. Even like being a father. Fuck that shit. I don't want to wageslave for years to save up enough money to give to a daughter who will grow up to be a worthless two faced slut.
I hate people. I hate society. I for one welcome Russia to nuke the shit out of my shithole. Just put us out of our misery please.

Being a hermit didn't require any privilege whatsoever. If someone wanted to live in solitude, he could do it. I'd argue it was even easier back then because not everything was ruled by law or government. Practically you could go live in the mountains or woods and most likely nobody would bother you, unlike today.

>The point is, succubi’s inherently privileged position was balanced out by the fact that they had no real political or financial power, so they had to depend on a man’s livelihood. For most of civilized history, it was necessary for survival for a succ to get married.

Not true, and even if it was, do you think the average male had any real political or financial power? No they didn't, any political power they did have, like a vote, was provided under certain obligations to the state like the draft, attending caucuses, paying taxes. You always hear about mistresses in medieval courts having indirect political power through a man and of course that comes with financial power, so it's fairly easy to assume this was a class difference not a gender one. succubi could work, they didn't "have" to depend on a man's livelihood, they just wanted to, because it's way easier, even today we can see gender roles benefit succubi who decide to opt out of work, not to mention they could probably get by doing less labour intensive work if they wanted, like sowing instead of mining.

You're right in your third paragraph, now that work is generally more comfortable succubi are opting to work instead of live with a man they don't like, and this results in more men being deselected because when standards of living rise and work becomes easier they feel less desire to leech off a man as they would rather live alone (or with lots of cats) - though they can still opt out and find a male provider which a lot of them do. However it's not an inherently modern thing as disenfranchised males have always existed and arranged marriages weren't happening for everyone in every microcosm of human history.

Capricorn here also. I believe you for what that's worth.

I've seen so many people with formidable talents not finding "their place" in the world, and as a result being left without the means to prove their worth. Do we really need to prove anything to anyone though? If the very society that depends on our utility has failed to not only give us a path to actualization, but trampled that path and then set it on fire, doesn't that speak for itself?

I could be wrong and maybe this isn't the case everywhere, but I hear this echoed by both younger and older folk usually when least expected. I think we can measure our abilities for ourselves well enough, and the struggle may be worth it by itself.

What kind of computing sorcery can you do, if you want to share here? Also no need to be sorry — sounds like you've had a rough ride and this is one of the better places to tell your story after all.

I live in 1 room with my parents for nearly 26 years. 2 rooms for 5 people…It is impossible to do anything normally here. There is constant noise, and lack of space. It is hard to hear anything or even think. Even the best headphones in the world aren't enough to mute it. Living like this is hell. I can't stand it anymore, but I can't move out. Even after taking xanax i couldn't force myself to meet a person renting the place. And I only had to walk 100 meters.
When I'm at a shop, my hands shake so much I can barely input my pin code. I don't know how to get out of bed and do basic chores. I'm gonna lose it one of these days and jump out the window or try to kill my parents. This situation is hopeless, even if i stay here, in a few years maximum my parents will die from illness or old age. I feel sick.
I tried 80-90% of all psychiatric drugs, spent months at a mental hospital, and it is impossible to help me. With therapy, you have to do things which I can't do because of living where I am. And so, I have exhausted my options. As time passes, everything worsens and i'm slipping into insanity.

Pull up your bootstraps and force yourself to do these things.

It's better to solve your problems sooner rather than later. As you gain more experience with everyday tasks, they become easier to do.

Anyone here have intrusive thoughts? They were really bad for me for a while but I have coped my way through them. I've basically come to realize life is just about chasing dopamine. Normalfags chase dopamine by pursuing relationships, sex, drugs, etc. Wizards chase dopamine through playing vidya, watching anime, masturbating or reading. After realizing that, I knew that my life wasnt necessarily much worse then a normalfags, we are both chasing after dopamine but in diffrent ways. The problem is I dwelled on "blackpill" and manosphere topics for a long time this lead to a lot of intrusive thoughts unfortunetly, but as I said before a lot of those have gone. My newest one is whenever I watch an anime I hear the voices of womens I feel like shit since I hate succubi, I hate the voices of them. How do wizards here deal with intrusive thoughts.

https://mises.org/library/disutility-labor

Mises wrote about the "disutility of labor". The opposite of utility. Basically work is doing something you would rather not do in exchange for pay. If it were fun enough to do for free, there would be no need to pay you.

I guess this is just Economics 101 or Life 101, but I had a hard time accepting it for many years. I was looking for a career to be my meaning of life. My purpose. I had nothing to do on the weekend, so I lived for the week.

But looking back on it, its kind of absurd. I can't find happiness and fun for free. I can't even find it by paying money. But now I expect the boss to pay me, to give me meaning, purpose, joy, fun.

Or at the very least a job with no disutility. Like being a security guard that just reads, watches TV and plays vidya all day. Paid to be a hikki neet.

I guess you could say it makes me spoiled and priviledged. But I'm not a robot. Without any of my spiritual needs fulfilled, I can't just be a survival machine.

But I realize no career is ever going to satisfy me, because I'm demanding too much of it. I'm demanding they pay me, to give me purpose. And if I can't find that on the weekend for free, why the hell would I get paid for it?

My life is just empty, and I expect my career to fill that void. When really the best I can hope for is a fair exchange of work to profit. Work is where you make cash to buy joy and meaning on your own leisure time.

I expected a job to give me a meaning of life, which isn't fair to jobs, its just there to exchange cash for disutility

Experimenting with "creative out of the box" ways to make money, does make me appreciate what a "good deal" a stable salary boring job is by comparison. Even in a relatively mid-tier job $30-$40K, try making that on ebay or youtube or bitcoin or stocks or blogs or anything else you can imagine. Or even dealing drugs. When you got to squeeze out every dollar yourself just getting to $1000 seems a mountain. While you can just show up to the office and collect it every week.

>Was their work less meaningful to them because of this?

Well, conveniently we don't have much data on job satisfaction in those days. I can agree that the modern corporate ladder is not a constant throughout history but I never defined progression as merely making one's way through an explicit social organization. Even without any kind of formal titles, a master is still a master, purely by his ability to work more efficiently and with higher quality, and the guy that started making shoes two weeks ago is less respected than the old master who's been doing it for 2 or 3 decades. The progression in this case is internal, in terms of mastery, but also socially implicit, no perks or a special title, but nonetheless the labor has social meaning to the person and probably acceptable to talk about at the local inn. I'd argue, that without at some of these features, the labor itself would be unsustainable.

Consider the myth of Sisyphus and how one's inability to make progress is effectively treated as psychological torture. It's not the physical labor of pushing the rock that gets you, but it rolling down the hill. Even if Sisyphus could tap into flow while going up hill, making it physically bearable, the walk downhill is when he is conscious and is confronted with the complete lack of meaning in his actions. It would be an interesting thought exercise to imagine being in this situation and then considering what you could do to alleviate your suffering. Perhaps one could imagine Sisyphus simply starting to count how many times he reaches the top, creating an artificial goal and progression for himself. The gods could be particularly evil and simply reset that part of his memory and his physical gains, making sure that everything is nearly the same every day.

A modern example is that Groundhog Day movie, where Bill Murray's character wakes up repeating the same day, having all his progress reset, making a g.irl fall in love with him and then have her not know who he is the next.

I think you simply latched unto my examples rather than the generalizations themselves. If I could generalize my thesis fully, I would define meaningful work as an activity that affords an agent the ability to progress in his/her goals in a manner that maximizes his optimal grip on the environment.

It's practically impossible. Trust me, I've tried every single thing that exists.

Unless you're willing to invest money, you can't make money online. It's impossible. Even affiliate marketing requires you to risk your money by buying marketing.

Starting from zero is im-fucking-possible. It can't be done. Too much competition and zero earning opportunities.

Now, compare my situation to 2022. I have two inheritances and I get about $8000 a year from stock dividends passively. It is the easiest money possible, I get it every April-May without lifting a finger.

Getting money when you already have some is the easiest thing in the world. Getting money when you have $0 is the hardest thing in the world. (Especially online)
