I feel like my memory and fluid intelligence is just going to shit. I can barely retain any new information. Literally just remembering a new word or something is so hard it takes so many repetitions to get it to stick and then I forget it the next day. Both my grandparents got Alzheimer's really bad so I know I likely have it in my genes.

I wasted my youth not learning useful skills and having good experiences.

I feel terrified of getting like my grandparents; getting even older and not being able to look after myself. Forgetting who my family members are. Shitting myself and basically losing my soul. I would rather just kill myself but I think I would be too frightened to do it and the feeling of being trapped between choosing Alzheimer's or suicide makes me want to scream.

I came to an epiphany regarding the ultimate uselessness of words and now my mind is no longer wracked by the vitriolic argumentation I once vainly classified as intelligence. Once everything becomes absurd any actions and mental tricks enter their last usage as the irrefragable destroyer carves its way across the mind, leaving behind stupefaction and noble slothfulness.

I haven’t been able to consistently leave the house for the past 8 years, you know how people say “things get easier the more you do them”? Well it’s the complete opposite for me, the more I am involved in a public place such as trying to get an education the more the paranoia builds, until I can’t take going there any more. I am 26 years old an I have never had a job and I have no education beyond highschool and some random college classes I managed to get through with heavy medication.

Is anyone else like this? I am not even depressed I am just extremely scared about being outside, the thought of even leaving my front door sends thoughts of neighbors peeking at me, recording me, taking notes on me, etc. I can’t bare it

Anxiety and paranoia can escalate to truly debilitating shit like schizophrenia. You are still playing on easy mode but that could change any day. Watch yourself.

I've only had mild psychosis so far, I don't think I'm predisposed to full schizophrenia, or maybe it's just because I haven't taken illegal drugs because I don't leave my house. But yeah I stopped telling my doctors about my paranoia because I dont want to take antipsychotics, being basically a lobotomized vegetable isn't really a cure

And as an addition, I just think about the things that run through my head when I'm outside, they just can't be true

So just one fear that keeps me out of my front lawn for instance, it's that the neighbor across the street, 70~ year old man, (I feel) is sexually interested in me, every time I see him sitting on his porch I just feel like he is waiting for me to come outside, when my parents make me walk to get the mail I go by and I start sweating and look at the pavement and I can just feel his eyes glaring at the back of my head, I've refused to do certain chores on occasion because of this but I don't even want to tell my parents because they'll think I'm crazy, one of the worst things now is it seems like whenever I arrive back home from places he's going back in to his house like he's done with something, I tell myself it doesn't mean anything, but my lizard brain says he's doing it on purpose

I really don't want to live in fear like this

It's really scary being paranoid. In my case, Internet use was the thing that ultimately set me off and made me lose contact with reality completely but I had had a long history of odd beliefs and paranoia, interest in supernatural, conspiracy theories, notions that we might be living in a simulation, etc. that fueled my disease. A big warning sign is when it begins to seem like everything you see, read or hear seems to be talking about you or is in some way connected to you. Watch out for "ideas of reference". This can evolve into complete madness. Good luck to you. I had to be forcibly medicated at first. I'm not trying to scare you but you should know the signs.

Why? How is it wrong to just accept that you are unwanted and go away? Do they get some kind of enjoyment out of watching the bottom ~5% of the population humiliate themselves over and over? Am I depriving them of entertainment?

Marriage rates are at an all time low - it was something like 80% of 30 year olds in the mid 20th c, down to about 18% in the past decade. No stable society if people don't marry and reproduce themselves. TFR confirms this.

Main reason why I dropped out of college, too much work and that's just only community college for me which won't get me anywhere. If I go to uni, I gotta do so much bullshit I don't want to just to get a job that will help me survive and have a regular fucking house. I don't wanna bother anymore and just try to learn a trade or be a wageslave for the rest of my life. Can't imagine spending most of my life studying and studying while still working a shit job to survive at the same time. That's no fucking life to live, fuck that, rather fucking be homeless and die, this shit isn't worth it man.

If you need a job this is a good time to be looking for one. If you don't have applicable skills I would work at an Amazon warehouse fulfillment center, from what I know it's 16-20 an hour and they'll hire you immediately.

If you have education and are looking for specialized work, I would look into entry level roles in the field. They're going to be worried that your skills have atrophied but now the demand for labor is so strong you probably will do just fine. I am in a similar situation and was surprised how many offer for reasonable salaries.

I would also add be willing to do any tasks that might be slightly inconveniencing. They actually paid me more than I asked for because I am doing some work that can run late so I'm working 9-6:30 instead of 8-5.

I'd say the most important thing is knowing more than buzzwords. This is where it's hard if you don't have work experience. It just helps if you can give specific examples of how you handled certain job responsibilities in the past or challenges and what you did to make it easier or more organized. If you don't have that, I wouldn't worry. Just apply for entry level positions, even if the pay sucks at first most of those have extremely high turnover so if you work there for a year or so you should be able to get a better position.

Working kind of sucks but as a wizard in his mid 30s it helps to have work.

Tl;dr if you're in the US you'll probably be hired in a few days no matter if you want to work in a warehouse, an accounting firm, or a programming company.

It's not a good time. Not unless you want to work at a junk yard 'organizing' trash in the hot sun or want a flagger job in the street being honked and yelled at all day. Also it'll be a temp agency so they're going to steal your cash a bit.

Also if you're white and male and act white then they're not going to feel sorry for you and not hire you at all.

Throughout my life I have never really experienced any traumatic events or bullying, so I was wondering why is it that I am so fucked up? I thought about it and have come to the conclusion that my basic lack of self confidence and avoidant tendencies stem from something I think of as "soft exclusion". Hard exclusion would be the traumatic experience where some bully insults you and teases you and explicitly excludes you from activities you try to participate in with them. Soft exclusion on the other hand is exclusion that happens behind the scenes simply by people not inviting you to participate in activities that go outside of what everyone is forced to participate in.

Regularly scheduled activities like school or extracurriculars are something where in essence you are forced to interact with others according to the rules set down by the overseeing authority figure, however normal childhood also has interactions with people outside of these activities where the children can be unsupervised and essentially free to be themselves. This is what I lacked all my life and other normalfags had. I don't know how or why it happened, but the normalfags all did stuff with each other outside of school, but never once was I invited. My parents gave me no guidance on inviting others to hang out with me, so I never invited others to spend time with me outside of scheduled activities. In the end what I was left with was a sort of hollowness, and emptiness where normally you are supposed to have deep ties with close friends. I have acquaintances, but not friends. The relationship of a classmate is like a work relationship basically, because of the supervised nature of it, real friendships form when people can be genuine and unsupervised.

Being soft excluded from that fucked with my confidence because I think there must be some reason having to do with me simply being unlikeable. When all your life you see circles of intimacy among your peers but never enter one yourself it has to fuck you up. I isolate partly out of a desire not to impose my presence upon others which I assume they must not enjoy. This is a learned feeling more than a rational thought process so I find it very hard to overcome.

Anyone else think they were fucked up by soft exclusion?

So.. An outcast?
Yeah I can relate. I wasn't always a loser but I had to switch schools and my new classmates were like snobbish apes. I had one friend from the class and later he told me the others had a meeting talking about what to do with me and they came to the agreement that I'm not worthy getting accepted into the class. Note that I was a slim, average looking kid.
My only sin was that I was shy and quiet (which I guess they took as I'm being arrogant).
Later on my school life was a living hell but I pushed through.
Before graduation I even made friends but it was too late for me.
Then in highschool my new classmates were literally young thugs.
Was preaching about why being a snitch was no good while they snitched all the time.
And I later realized that it's not snitching telling the teachers that I WAS in danger.
In those 12 years 8 was a living nightmare.
Wish I stayed with my old classmates (from the first school), but life happened, out of my control. And I got fucked

When I was a kid I never, not once, had guests over, because my house was gridlocked with distrust and contempt. I think throughout the entirety of my elementary school life I hung out with people outside of school only four or so times, three of which were birthday parties. Only one was a "play-date". As a middle and high schooler I felt immense envy when I eavesdropped on the other kids and heard them reminisce about their childhoods, and I cant even start to describe how soul crushing it was to hear about a party that had occurred over the past weekend while I had locked myself in my dark room. My childhood was excruciatingly boring. I didn't even really play video games, I just surfed the internet. What few games I did play were all single player.

Beware of basing your own perceptions on dubious normgroid neglective behaviours. Be sure to know what you are, why and why all else are right or wrong about whatever.

There must be some reason? But you cannot even elucidate it and yet you are accepting it: this is how the normgroid mind-frame taints you. BEWARE OF THAT.

I can not be mediocre or worst at things, it makes me feel a lot of guilt and shame.

Whether it's health, wealth, meaningful activities, relationships, mental strength or other visions … I'm always in the middle or below average.

Today I ran 5km competition and it was a succubus 2 years younger who ran much better than me and it made me feel even more useless.
