Post here when you don't have enough to say for a topic and it's too depressing for the general crawl thread.

It's always so self-defeating. Getting up each day and all the rest that flows from it. I don't even know why I bother. Ideally, I really shouldn't bother. As a pampered shut-in, I could just as easily lay there and do nothing. Of course, it wouldn't really help since, naturally, I'd still be there, encumbered with my rotten lump of a brain. Experiencing every awful moment that comes. A passive sense of hatred towards all others & a profound restlessness/discomfort in my own skin. That's all there ever is. Coming here, in particular, has, more often than not, only ever served to elevate that sense of hatred & discomfort in me and I just wish I'd stop. Even as a chronically depressed, obsessive compulsive shut-in with autism, I just feel so alone here. So very, very alone.

Either way, no one cares. Nor should they, honestly. After all, it's not like I care about anyone else, but myself. Still, I just find myself passively hating most of the user base here, in the same way I passively hate everyone on reddit, or wherever else. Nauseating bullshit here, nauseating bullshit everywhere else. Contempt & disdain is all I see. About what I say, or what others say. Wizard or normalfag, it makes no difference. Half of whom are just crazed self-improvement nuts anyway, or otherwise crazed jackanapes. The unrelenting tar of it all may as well ooze through my screen in buckets.

A cold, dry, dismally mocking laugh. That's what the atmosphere of this site has always felt like to me. Flippantly hostile, glib & irreverently sadistic. Like a smirking drunk in some divey bar taking easy potshots & tossing peanut after peanut at other sad drunks, purely for their own base amusement and because they simply enjoy being a smarmy asshole whenever they can. That's just how it's always felt to me anyway, for all these years coming here now. At this point, I can't really expect it to be any other way, except for it to be worse than it already was before, which is exactly how it's been. It what it is. I'm just a glutton for punishment it seems. That and desperate, of course.

Although, of course, not coming here wouldn't really solve anything. Sitting mute in the corner of my room, with negative thoughts swirling in my mind like a backed-up toilet, is basically my only alternative. There's no respite from myself. Wherever I go, there I am. By the same token, wherever everyone else is, there they are. As nauseating to me as they were to me the first time. But, well, there I go moaning like an infant again. "Cry little baby, cry. Nobody cares for your stupid shit. If you hate it here so much, why don't you just fuck off & leave then?" Why, indeed. Why, why, why. Where there's a why there's a why. Why's the why. Why this, why that. Why with a "?", or why with a "!", or perhaps with both or neither. Well, who can say. I might already know and perhaps some others might as well. Stupid nonsense aside, perhaps I'll never know. Maybe it's as simple as what I mentioned in the beginning. People do things that are bad for them out of desperation & habit. Certain people will feel alienated & angry after everything. Even more uniquely certain people will feel somehow confused about the simplicity of all this and make long retarded spiels like this one trying to over complicate their own pitiful masochistic tendencies. What a pointless runaround. No wonder I feel the way I do.

>There's discrimination everywhere in life, even here unfortunately. It's all just one big competition.


>I trust wizard judgement no more than I trust anyone else's. In my experience everyone is equally full of shit and equally tainted by their own self-affirming misconceptions. There are no free pats on the back here.


Just a couple random quotes taken from the wiki. Such words are a balm to my sanity. I just wish there were more of them.

My mother says that I've stolen her happiness, that she was extremely disappointed when I dropped out of high school (for being a despondent shut-in with a nasty fear of other people). Because of me she couldn't even experience the joy of watching her only son graduate, and of course brag to friends and family that I'd be off to college to pursue a lucrative career. It's not enough that still, somehow, I've managed to will myself into wageslavery (as you can imagine it's not a good job, by any means). That most of my income goes towards sustaining us. No it's not enough, I have to have drive and ambition, become "someone". It's all just so far removed from my actual mindset, and situation really, it makes me wonder how much this person and I really understand each other. Which brings me to what I really wanted to express, that everyone in my life is a stranger. Especially the close characters such as parents, I've come to know my father as a disembodied voice over the phone to speak little nothings with once a month and as I mentioned before my mother's attitude is just strange to me, what did she think I was doing there locked in my room for all those years? All the time I spent with this person and I can't recall a single piece of advice, moment of genuine affection, a decent conversation even, none of it! I'm hoping it was just neglect, that the depression hasn't atrophied my brain so much as to erase huge portions of my memories, or dull them. It's all just tiring to think about.

Fair enough. You have a point, I must admit. In the end I think I just hate myself for being retarded and then project it on everybody else because all I see is how retarded & annoying everything is. It wears me out and then I sometimes make self-defeating posts like this. I know that no one probably agrees with me, but I just feel like I have to say it anyway, to release all the frustrated mental diarrhea that's in my head.

My mother got this new e-cig sort of deal, a heating stick that lets you smoke without igniting the tobacco. The company that makes these says that since it "produces no smoke" it's entirely safe to be used indoors and in public spaces, unlike normal cigarettes. Now, I'm not sure about the smoke, I've never seen my mother smoke one of these but I sure smelled it, it simply stinks, smells like burned plastic or a short circuit.
I'm not a smoker myself, not only that, I suffer from terrible health anxiety, reading about second- and third-hand smoke made me so anxious I couldn't sleep for a few nights despite the fact that my mother (before she got this new device) always smoked outside or on the balcony and the smoke never really got in.
She knows about this hang-up of mine and probably expected me to take her smoking less seriously since, like I said, the research said that the aerosol that's produced during the heating of tobacco is much healthier and safer than cigarette smoke. The problem is, I don't quite trust these results because, apparently, the company that makes these sticks is Philip Morris, one of the tobacco industry's giants; and you know how easy it is for companies like these to get what they want through lobbying and forged research results.
Anyhow, I nagged her for a bit, trying to get her to smoke outside and on the balcony like she always did but I was met with animosity, she even got annoyed about me opening the windows to ventilate the room. And now I'm called an annoying burden (which I am, really). She lets me live with her and, to be frank, her complaints are kind of fair. Regardless, I want her to stop, the smell and the anxiety are driving me mad.

Not long after posting this, she & I finally went on that drive. It was very nice, actually. It's an absolutely perfect autumn night out there right now, with a fresh cool breeze in the air. I took a bit of a waltz around the particular location where we usually sit & park for a bit, all while my mother remained in the car, and I ended up looking out across the water from a nice secluded spot nearby at the random lights & things in the distance, while also listening to the waves soothingly crash against the shore of the bay. A train then came rolling by from just behind where we'd parked and, as I was on my way back, I instead proceeded to watch it pass from the grass below. Of course, as a reflex, I couldn't help, but think "Damn, there goes an easy chance to off myself", but, for the most part, I was actually quite at peace, not to mention scampering up the grassy incline towards where the tracks were would've been too much effort. I also couldn't help, but think of the scale of the irrelevant. The wind blowing through the trees, the waves lapping, the crickets chirping, a leaf tumbling across a random street (etc.). All of it still happening even as I type this. In all those little spots, in all those little areas no one ever looks at. Everywhere, all these little things happening. It means nothing though, of course. Just a random bit of nonsense that sometimes strikes me is all. Anyway, these moments I described are just the sort of variety where one can perhaps momentarily manage to lose themselves in it all, before inevitably snapping back to, which would be in my case, the grimness of my predominantly gloomy state.

Either way, I just wish I weren't so agoraphobic. It's just a quaint place, this little town. Wonderful to go wandering around in, especially on a night like this. I could never go anywhere without my mother though, which is why these occasional night drives of ours are usually so precious to me. They're basically my only exposure to the outside world and this town is like a graveyard after midnight, so it works out for the best.

I know the pain.
One of the factors that completely killed any drive for me to go somewhere with my brother or father, it's always something like
>I stand in front of the house for 20 minutes like a retard while they're looking for their keys (we don't need them, because I have mine)
>We stand around like retards in front of some random places because they have to play Pokemon GO
>We can't just go on a walk with the dog, they have to take 20 gimmicks and constantly play around with them stopping every 100 metres.
I regretted not going alone every single time I wanted to do something and they tagged along, and I regretted every single time they invited me out to a restaurant or something. I stopped going anywhere with them years ago and every exception I make I am reminded why.
It's sad when they don't respect your time/your sleep/your schedule just because they know you'll accept it like you always did.

I am sleep deprived from yesterday's lack of sleep and I still can't bring myself to go to sleep. My whole body is burning with heat flashes, my pulse is fast for no reason and muscles is twitchy. Even if I go to bed, I would stay up with nondescript thoughts racing across my head. I am in a peculiar and unsettling state where both deep exhaustion and aversion to rest is concurrent. I used to find escape in sleep, now I despise it. All the conventional ideas of sleep as a refresher of mind and body or sleep as a respite from the chaos of the world is no longer familiar to me. Sleep is hell. A struggle to still a burning forest with a pail of water until it decided on its own whim to be put out when it has turn everything to ashes and there is nothing left to burn.

I spend such an insane amount of time sleeping these days. As the old Bill Hicks joke goes, "I need 8 hours of sleep a day and about 10 at night and I'm good". It's really a double edged sword, though. Being unconscious is all well & good while it lasts sure, but the having to inevitably wake up later? Worse shit in the world, man. Worse fucking shit in the world. Pic related always runs through my mind, especially if I'm too awake to fall back to sleep again, which is how it usually always is. Even moreso than that, I find there's a certain hollow agony that pervades my senses even when I'm just laying there trying to get to sleep. Perhaps it's because I have nothing better to do and thus have been heavily abusing sleep as my only coping mechanism for so long now, which, just like anything when done in excess, is becoming quite unpleasant/painful to engage in. I just feel so trapped. There's no escape from the misery I feel in this moment, nor what is inherent to daily existence itself in this dreadful void of a universe. Drugs & alcohol are poison and I have no wish to partake in them. I experimented with weed a couple times and that was fucking hell incarnate. Like I said, there's just no escape, at least none left that still work for a cretin such as myself.

>"Now what will you do?"


Again, I'm left with pic related. Shat out this stupid post. Now what? Sleep again? Then what? I can't even think of anything else. One way or another, I'll be back to sitting here. Sitting here for what feels like hours & hours, mindlessly refreshing wizchan and a couple other tabs, while perhaps browsing a few other dreadfully dull websites. Restless, uncomfortable, bored, frustrated, and wanting to tear my fucking skin off the whole time.

>"Now what will you do?"


Why does my own mind mock me so? Why does everything have to suck so bad? Why do I have to be such a lame faggot? Why can't I just be the lone wizard, happily occupying himself in his tower? The absolute ideal of all ideals. The only logical answer to this rotten hole of a universe, next to suicide. Why did entropy need to ruin everything? Why do I need to be such an anhedonic faggot? Why do I need to waste so much time & energy, staring off into space in profound discomfort like some catatonic invalid? Why am I such a defective fucking faggot? Why am I such a pitiful, stupid ass, dumb bastard, shit eating bitch, pathetic fucking cunt excuse of a wizard? I hate myself. I hate everything. I hate each passing moment. I just hate. Even when I'm my most emotionally zombified, seemingly unable to feel anything except sadness, there's still an icy cold ball of hatred in me. Even when you crack that open however, all that's left is emptiness. Boundless emptiness & depression. It's all a noxious miasma in my head.

>"Now what will you do?"


Sit here. Sit here and feel like shit. That's what I'll do. That's what I always do. There's no choice. Like a maze where each tunnel keeps leading me back to the same place. It's like the 10 minutes, or whatever the fuck, of hate from 1984, except add emotional agony to the mix and have it stretched out to basically the whole day. That's what I'm trapped in. Forevermore until the day I die because my brain's a rotten lump of shit. This guy said it all. >>>/dep/207142 Everyday my OCD attacks my psyche & wears down my sanity. I bring myself agony whenever possible. It's like I've subconsciously trained myself to do this. An auto-immune disease of the body/soul, making me a half-crazed faggot, plagued with anhedonia & all manner of wriggling mental worms that eat their way into my skull. "And the worms ate into his brain", as the old song goes (you should know which one I mean). They gorged themselves quite heartily & had their fill.

>"Now what will you do?"


Well, that's it then. Please feel free to shoot me in the head, should you ever see me. My odds are quite bad though, since I only leave the house less than 3 times a year. Please try your best, though. I believe in you & know you can do it. May my angel of death, clad in the garb of the big wizzie in the sky, visit me soon. The wishes & thoughts of a desperate, faggoty & half-crazed mind. That's all.

Sorry to hear that wizzie. My mother can be quite inconsiderate, self-absorbed and rude, but usually never to have that level. The kind of shit you describe would literally drive me murderously crazy. The fact that you can live on your own & ignore them, I assume, is something I envy, at least in my own small way, since I'm too useless & helpless to live without the support of my parents. Again though, I get along with them quite well a lot of the time. It's just that they can still be assholes sometimes. In my case, my mother sincerely apologized to me, so it's all good in the end. Well, mostly anyway, since I know moments like these are bound to happen again sooner or later. Such is to be expected, though. Me & my mother have a pretty open relationship, though. I don't have to pussy foot around her, nor does she need to pussy foot around me. We're pretty upfront about our feelings, so I never have to censor myself. I call out her bullshit when she's acting like an ass, and she calls out mine when I'm doing the same. It's very freeing and I try not to take it for granted.

I'm trying to make a map of my different moods and every time I think I've got it complete another day happens where I have a totally different experience of depression. I forget they exist and then remember them. Today is the melancholic depression where I feel trapped in this existence, a deep sadness and repeated ideations of having a terminal illness and telling my family it's my time to go. Not a sadness about the future but at this feeling of existing.

Then there's the depression where everything hurts, one where my mind is burning, etc etc. Is this just normal emotions taken to the extreme? I read this week that bipolar actually means flipping from depression to mania once or twice a year, having daily mental swings where you lose connection to reality from the confusion is some thing called "ultra-rapid cycling" which doctors don't agree even exists. You don't get that impression online do you? I'm learning that other people online are the worst source of information and maybe other people in general.

Well to be fair I did do you injustice mistaking you for that other wizard. I was just scanning your post and read out your contempt for wizards. It's a different story if you reflect this knowing that this is related to your own perception. That other poster did not admit that and had no self awareness at all.

Human communication always has a tendency of failing and most of the times it really is as you said, retarted and annoying. Succeeding human interaction is the absolute exception and often it makes everything much worse so most times it's better to say nothing in my experience.

Bought a game from GOG Store, expected to download it via their client to use its online features. Then I found out that I need to have Service Pack 1 installed to download GOG Galaxy after having already bought the game.

What have you lost? What do you think life is about if you think those people do something with it and you don't? Why do you compare yourself to others if it's a universal truth that everything in the past was necessarily leading to exactly this point and you had no chance of changing this? Comparing yourself to other people is harmful and irrational as you couldn't have been another person than you are right now. So why not rather look at how you want to lead your life now?

I don't care about norman values, succubbi or gym, it's just that I'm getting old and the guilt is starting to get to me. I'm 30 and never had a job, while my father is 65 and is still working to this day (although just part time, but still), why should I get a free ride? Don't get me wrong, I love being a NEET and dread the day I might have to start working, but things are different when you're older. When I was 23-25 I was having the time of my life being a NEET and didn't care about a thing in the world, but now I can't avoid some hard questions: how can I help take care of my parents when they get too old? What am I going to do when they die? How is a 30yo going to get a job with no education and a 13 year gap on his resume? etc
I'm not disparaging the NEET life, in fact I love it, but it gets harder when you're older.

As I was waking up today I entered a semi-lucid, dreamlike state. Different places, people, sounds and visions from different points of my life, regardless of their significance, were flowing seamlessly one into another so believably, so coherently and in such a realistic manner. It didn't feel like a dream, it felt like I was actually there, in that dreamscape, conscious to an extreme degree, yet unable to distinguish it all from reality or influence it in any way. It all continued for a few minutes before I woke up, and I "transitioned" into the real world just as smoothly as I did between various scenes and sets of this amazing dream. This ethereal state persisted for a few minutes after I had woken up, and then my head felt a bit heavy and I was "back in the real world" again.
It was simply amazing. But at the same time I felt concerned. You know how they say that your life flashes before your eyes before you die? Having experienced something that fits this description well, I couldn't help but think of how many more details of my life that I don't remember, that are subconsciously stored somewhere deep within my memory will resurface when I die, how many more images will invade my consciousness, both pleasant and unpleasant, during these last moments of mine. It makes me apprehensive and yet somewhat more welcoming of death. All these thoughts and more were running through my mind as I was making a bread and butter sandwich.
This morning was simply surreal.

All the fucking stress that's arisen over the years from the simple fact that this god damned sardine can of a house has only a single bathroom. Made worse by the fact that, for about half a decade now, my significantly overweight mother has been using our bathtub as a sort of pseudo-bidet. Or, in other words, using an attachable secondary shower-head to wash out her shit encrusted ass over the bath tub because toilet paper is too "uncomfortable", along with the fact that doing it over the toilet isn't physically possible given how fucking fat she is. The entire bathroom literally reeks of moist fecal matter whenever she does this. To be fair, she does have the, how should I say, decency(?) to scoop up any shit that happens to remain in the tub, in addition to pouring a bit of soap/spraying a bit of febreeze to cover up the smell. She's hardly diligent about this, however. If I had a dollar for every time I went in there and found one of her fucking turds still sitting near the drain, or was literally sent hurtling back through the stench alone, I'd have well over $300 at this point. And you know what? My fucking luck, it's usually always been just as I wanted to have a shower, or wanted to generally just use the bathroom. There's an almost insulting clockwork & horrifying symmetry to all this fucking awfulness.

To all those rich wizzies out there who can enjoy a second bathroom, or otherwise live on their own. Boy, do I envy you some times. The endless indignities of poverty. Never had a room of my own growing up, always having to fight tooth & nail for the simplest of things, just never enough money for any kind of joy at all. It's too fucking much, man. It's too fucking much.

Yeah, but they're usually centered around succubi (ala The Cat Lady), or otherwise have something to do with succubi (ala Silent Hill 2). I could list a few games where a bunch of characters kill themselves, or even the main character kills themselves, but it almost always suffers from the past two already indicated issues, so there wouldn't be any point.

On a similar note, it's bizarre how these mundane, small social interactions make me truly feel human. Like that one time when I was taking a bus and the bus driver missed a turn and everyone had a small scare and then a laugh, and an old man sitting next to me asked me, "He missed the turn, right?" with a smile on his face. I said, "Yes, yes he did," and felt the exact same kind of warm and cordial sensation and couldn't help but smile myself.

For the record though, I wouldn't say we're dirt poor, just more working poor. Our house isn't a tin shack, or anything. Not to mention, that while my mother is quite obese, she's currently losing quite a bit of weight at the moment, so I hope she it keeps up. If I'm being honest, it's actually been a while since I've found one of her turds in the tub. And again, to call them "turds" is a bit of an overstatement. There's essentially only ever one and it's always the size of a bread crumb. I scream at her to come clean it up & she does so each time without complaint. In this past year, it's actually barely happened at all. The smell is really the most infuriating part of it and the fact that she's still selfish/disrespectful enough to use our only tub as her personal bidet. Could almost snap her neck over it, or to somehow beat some sense into her, but whatever. Such is the reality of living with the cretin that spawned me. This is just how it is, I guess.

I can relate, since I suffer often from anhedonia, which makes everything seem tiresome when I wish it wasn't. "Real life", to me anyway, would simply be a release from anhedonia.

Well, here I am again, one week after my prayer for better days. It happened that the days following that one were worse than I expected.

Old memories and feelings started to flourish once again through this already cracked body and mind. It's slowly destroying what's left of me. I haven't experienced this for almost a decade, and back at that time, I had external balance, that means no significant indirectly problems, like work, family, neighborhood, etc. That's why I handled it well, I guess. But from 2014 and forwards, this pattern inverted. I was in peace with myself but things outside started to go to shit at an exponential rate, again, I survived.

Right now, I'm experiencing both inside and outside threats simultaneously. The gates of hell were opened inside my mind, and the Apocalypse has begun around me. Even in sleep I'm tormented by thoughs and emotions that I wished so fucking bad they stayed deactivated in the deepest level of my unconscious. I don't know what to do, don't know what to think, I feel like a powerless child, cursed to suffer until the Cosmos decide that I'm worthy of mercy. I can't even cry. Sorry for the big text. I'm done for today. Good night wizzies, hope tomorrow will be better.

Does anyone here think that Ligotti is a wizard, or not? Was, or is, he married & does he have kids? I mean, the guy's probably had at least one relationship at some point I bet, but I guess I'm just bored & a little curious to know. Wikipedia doesn't provide any details and I'm too lazy to look anywhere else. As an aside, I can understand him not wanting to do a video interview, but at least audio one interview would be nice. His songs & collaborations with C93 are great & all, but I'd still like to hear a real back & forth between him & someone else about various topics. Even just text based interviews are fairly sparse.

It'd be a nice bonus if sorts like Cioran, Zapffe, Schopenhauer, (etc.), were wizards, but that's all. It's hardly something to get hung up on.

Ligotti himself actually comments on this fact, at least insofar as it pertains to horror fiction, although it would equally apply to what you said as well. See attached pic.

>>208750

Personally I'd actually feel more comfortable with someone who, let's say, only had one relationship in their whole lives, but had thoughts/opinions that reflected the core philosophical values of wizardry, as shown in TCATHR, as opposed to someone else who's an actual wizard by definition and has never even touched a succubus, but, at the same time, has more base values that are reflective of a brash, egoistic normalfag like Jordan Peterson, or someone equally repugnant. Most of the purported wizards on this site, or more specifically those found in /lounge/, fit the latter, just as an example.

It's a long road when you're a wizzy
And it hurts when they tear your dreams apart
And every new town just seems to bring you down
trying to find peace of mind can break your heart

It's a real war
right outside your front door I tell ya
Out where they kill ya
you could use a friend

Where the road is
That's the place for me
Where I'm me in my own space
Where I'm free that's the place
I want to be

Cause
The road is long and each step is only the beginning
No breaks, just heartaches
Oh man, is anybody winning?

It's a long road
And it's hard as hell
Tell me what do you do to survive
When they draw first blood
That's just the start of it
Day and night
You gotta fight
To keep alive

Same, virginity is a weak bond and I find myself relating to people here less and less as the years go on. To be honest these arguments about whether or not some historical figure was a wizard or not just seem stupid. If their ideas are on point and they didn't reproduce I don't really care.

Regarding Ligotti, I recall someone here posting a profile he had on a dating site several years ago. However the description was something like "looking for someone to have dinner with and then commit double-suicide with" so it might've just been a joke.

Not me. Actions are always more significant than mere thoughts. There is no wizard philosophy and there never will be as much as I hate what many of the people here believes. I was never impressed by any quotes of ligotti or pessoa. Yes life is shit, meaningless, people are despicable, etc. Repeating it over the course of a book does not offer any new insights. It's just an exercise in aesthetics and language, and also a reinforcement for one's own identity and beliefs, no different from how a /pol/ user or leftist will follow e-celebs who spout already well known populist beliefs. I'd say the ideal wizard is someone whose isolation so extreme he does not browse this site and does not leave his mark on anybody's consciousness, so we'll never know them anyway.

Actions are more important than words and reason. Every intelligent normal person with let's say an academic profession or as an autodidact can write things like Ligotti if he wanted to. There is no magic to what Ligotti says it's just like with every good author that he has an appealing way of writing and on point argumentation which makes it seem very meaningful but in fact he is saying nothing different than a depressed virgin who says that he hates life or whatever. Others have said it in different styles for centuries but the message is always the same.

Wizardy is all about not having sex and in fact if a person has had sex then to me he is a life affirming normal scum no matter what bullshit he says. Actions is what defines man not reason. Just look at all the philosophers and authors who write about ethics and religion and so on and then look what life they actually lived. Most times it couldn't be any more contrasting. That's why I'm always sceptical if people refer to philosophical ideas and attitudes because it says nothing about their personal views and actual life.

Yes, you're right, of course. I actually didn't mean to start a bunch of hullabaloo over purported notions of wizardry, since, as you pointed out yourself, beyond the obvious requirement of having to meet the standards of the very definition itself, there are none.

Having said that, as a deeply pessimistic & efilistic individual, I would still find the company of other equally pessimistic people, who, let's say, have barely engaged with succubi, but aren't wizards (like, again, Erik Satie) to be more preferable than, again, someone who actually is a wizard, but who is also insufferably conservative & pro-life in their mindset (at least in a hedonistic sense), or is otherwise delusionally sunny about the world at large. Again, this really has nothing to do with wizardry, other than to say that, ideally, I'd feel the most comfortable with someone like Ligotti, assuming he was a wizard. To some extent, the fact that he potentially isn't a wizard does mark him as a hypocrite, since, he too, in the face of decrying it, relishes in the ugliness of this world like anyone else and in one of the most heinous way possible (cavorting with succubi). As someone else pointed out, Schopenhauer, despite his many salient insights, was perhaps the worst offender of this, in particular. Saying one thing, then doing another. A very human failing, but the concepts of asceticism & abstaining from desire, go well beyond any philosopher's random scribblings or failings. Those are concepts that I personally value & live by. Other wizards may not, which is fine. I just don't want to speak to them, or interact with them, in the same way I wouldn't want to interact with anyone else who feels the same way. It all comes back to my own preferences. Wizardry is just a unique demographic I happen to occupy, filled with all different sorts of individuals, like any other. Most of whom, beyond wizardry, I have nothing in common with whatsoever. I'm not demanding anyone cater to my outlook on life, but as a hardline depressive/efilist, Wizchan will always be abrasive due to the fact that, outside of sex/relationship talk, conventional normalfag attitudes can be just as easily found here as anywhere else. That's just how it is though, so whatever. Take it or leave it, basically.

>>208772

>I'd say the ideal wizard is someone whose isolation so extreme he does not browse this site and does not leave his mark on anybody's consciousness, so we'll never know them anyway.


Well, to be fair, extreme isolation & living as a ghost, have nothing to do with wizardry either. Again, I value those qualities as an individual, but they're irrelevant to the definition of wizardry.

>Maybe early monastic tradition from religions are the best wizards we can find.


Monks of any religion, regardless of how insane, backward, or normalfag-ish that religion is, would be good examples of wizards, but their status as monks, beyond being a solid indication of them fulfilling the definition, means nothing. Some partying moron, pumping his ego & gallivanting in excess would be near identical, so long as he was also a strict virgin who denied any contact with the opposite sex. Like it or not, there is no "best" wizardry. There is only the unbiased & dry definition. Again, for me, I'd much converse with a Cathar, who might have held a succubus's hand 20 years ago, versus some Jersey Shore-esque wizard, who's loud & obnoxious, yet has never engaged with a succubus.

Next to Ligotti, Christopher Knight is also revered as an "ideal" wizard, but, just like Ligotti, he's just as inconsequential to the definition. If anything, he himself may not even be a wizard at all. Does anyone really know for certain? It's entirely possible he could've been in a relationship before taking to the woods. Perhaps he's even in one now. Does this make him a "fraud"? Not really, since he never claimed to be a wizard in the first place. Once more however, I'd much rather be on a forum strictly for Christopher Knights or Ligotti type individuals (barring the fact that they might not be wizards and yet, most importantly, that succubi & relationship talk were not allowed) than one such as here, which allows cacophonous loudmouths, steeped in the mantras of 'life is great' & self-help nonsense, whom very well might be wizards, but are in every other way unpalatable. I stick to Wizchan, and more specifically /dep/, since it's the closest I can get to what I'm looking for (depressed efilistic individuals, where relationship talk is not allowed), while cutting out the putrid nonsense & chaff one finds constantly on boards like /lounge/ & /wiz/. That's all I was trying to say.

I am applying for medicaid and it asked me if I had a physical or mental disability that limits my ability to work, attend school, or take care of my daily needs. I told my mom I was going to select that I was disabled because that exactly describes me and it turned into some big argument with my mom where she tried to force me to go back to college and pretend like everything is going to be fine and I told her everything is fucked because of global warming and that there's no hope for the human race and trying to delude yourself like you're gonna go to college and find the magic bullet that will save a human society too wrapped up with its narcissism to do anything to save itself is just a pointless delusion to make yourself feel better in the short term and I can't manage it. It did not go well. My mom is still deferring to normie think where everything is going to be fine because science fixed stuff in the past so it will fix stuff again now and calling me delusional but honestly she has not looked at the research, she has not considered just how large and unsolvable a problem this is. That was only even a tangential issue to why I'm disabled though, I can't handle being around people because of the sickening anxiety it produces. That was just trying to explain the reason I have no motivation to fight through all that and become a normalfag like she wants.

I still don't know what to put down on the application. She's trying to convince me it's some legal definition that I need to be declared by some formal process first but it didn't say anything like that on the application.

duh, she wasn't even talking about that though, just trying to say it could screw with my ability to get medical insurance. I should be able to qualify for medicaid regardless of whether I'm disabled though, it's not like they take it away from people who have disabilities.

I can't decide what to put though so I just put the application on hold as I sit in indecision. I can't really see myself ever working a job again at this point. The last time just made me too miserable. What is the point of living if it only makes you miserable?

I never said I was hostile towards them. Just that, if given the choice, I'd much rather speak to sorts with a similar attitude to myself within the range of an Erik Satie, than some immaculate wizard with a totally polar opposite personality & belief system to my own. If anything, I'd actually say that wizards with a more sunny disposition are the ones who are more hostile towards sorts like me. Just look at all the overwhelming contempt & disdain everyone on this site has for /dep/ as being nothing more than a i-ncely "crab bucket". Being efilistic, depressed, or otherwise having a negative attitude about existence itself, is just as valid a position as some will to power hedonist, only interested in pumping their ego & indulging their desires. Whether those are entirely material desires (food, drugs, general wealth acquisition, etc.) or entirely self-minded desires (aggrandizement & cultivation of some arbitrary set of skills, general self-help nonsense, consuming art & media as an end on to itself, etc.), it makes no difference.

>Do you seriously believe that such persons can stay virgins?


Sure, why not? Unlikely perhaps, but wizardry isn't bigoted towards one way of conduct over another. I really only used that an as illustration of how neanderthal-like & obnoxious some wizards on this site can be, insofar as their sheer love of hedonism & self-actualization is, burning at the stake anyone who disagrees with them. Having said that, Tony Robbins or Jordan Peterson wannabes, with delusions towards fanatical adherence to egoist philosophy being their standard for proper wizardry, would probably have been a better way to word it.

>Also, we can offer valuable advice and help.


Should it be requested, fine. Often times, however, nobody asks for it. As I said already, if anything, egoist wizards, of which there are many on this site, can't stand depressed or otherwise bleak wizards, glibly dismissing those of that temperament as, again, nothing more than crabs. You say there's no official wizard philosophy or code of conduct. Why the fuck don't you go remind them of that in /lounge/ & elsewhere? After all, there are far more egregious violators of this, (that being pushing their own inane nonsense, of the type I mentioned earlier, on others as being the one & only true way of wizardry), than what you'll find here. It's a complete double standard if you ask me, yet it gets a pass because one is seen as somehow less "craby" than the other, despite the fact that both positions are just as right & equally invalid when referring to wizardry.

Spot on. When it comes right down to it, it's essentially about picking the best of the worst. A disgustingly two-faced, yet kindred spirit in the deepest sense of pessimism, like Schopenhauer, or some immaculately untouched wizard, who, beyond us relating with our shared virginity, has the understanding & nuance of opinion as joe six pack down the street. Are all the wizards like the latter? Well no, of course not. It's just that, if I had to choose between the two mentioned in this hypothetical scenario, I'd much rather spend my time with the former.

>I hate the majority of other wizards here, I'll say it loud and proud.


Hate's a strong word, but I certainly do hate the culture of imageboards as a whole. A culture where nothing is taken seriously, while rampant stupidity & utter nonsense are celebrated & engaged in 24/7. In that sense, I hate Wizchan for being just another dumb, useless imageboard at the end of the day, but not uniquely moreso than any other. No relationship talk & outsider memes, along with /dep/ & /games/, being what keeps me coming back. And, granted, in that sense, Wizchan certainly has value, if only a little.

I'm not sure that's exactly true. Naturally people can be pragmatically pessimistic about certain things, yet not in any way be depressed. However, from the perspective of deep pessimism (of the kind exemplified in Mainlander, Ligotti, or efilism in general, etc.), I find that it's pretty much impossible to not look at the world & the universe at large and not be depressed about it. People, whether they be wizards or not, can turn to egoism, or whatever else, if they wish and put a proverbial bag over their head in the process, yet that doesn't change the inherent despair of existence when looked at honestly, without dreams or delusions.

>difficulties understanding your defense of a generally negatively connotated condition.


Well, to be clear, I'm certainly not defending "depression", as if it were simply some random affectation or a lifestyle choice, or whatever else. Depression & anhedonia are, in many ways, the most awful things one can be inflicted by. Why would anyone want that? The fact of the matter is though, that depression, real depression, comes as a result of an excess of reality. No amount of self-help nonsense, or playing pretend in some self-constructed philosophical playground, can heal the wounds inflicted from the raw, pure & searing hot cauldron of reality as it's always been. Wizards or not, those who have also gazed into that cauldron & have come away permanently scarred from it are the only ones I see as being worth conversing, or sharing ideas with. Now, can other people come away from what I've expressed above and not be depressed about it? Sure, I suppose so. I'd still call them either psychopathically masochistic or otherwise extremely deluded and not the sorts I'd want to associate or communicate with. Personally, I refuse & am unable to be either of those things so, as a consequence, I remain a permanent victim of my own sensitivity to the pitch black, truths of this world. I was doomed to uncover them, and doomed to languish thereafter. It really wasn't even a choice, nor is it still. Very few ever seem to understand or sympathize with this sort of thing, wizards included. Depression, in this sense, is almost like being a burn victim. It's pretty natural to expect for one to want to speak to other burn victims, than those, no matter whom it is they are, who deny I even have any burns at all, or that they can be remedied away somehow.

Personally speaking, I'll frankly be stunned if modern society is still in any way functionally present 10 years from now. Either way, I'd recommend taking it easy since you're right that inevitable collapse makes much of what people chase after or work towards blatantly pointless & retarded. That was always the case given our inherent mortality as individuals, but industrial society going down for good, just makes the sorts of ridiculous games people play with themselves & each other, that much more laughably irrelevant/futile, to the point that not even most normalfags can ignore it. As you touched on, this bitch is undeniably sinking & fast, so you may as well kick up your feet as a NEET with some autismbux if you're able, assuming that's what someone wants. Better than wasting time/energy working or saving towards a future that, at least in regards to society, literally won't be there. Assuming you're somewhat well off & in the 1st world, the current era is the definitive peak of human luxury & technology, never to be surpassed, or reached again. Relish it while it lasts.

yeah it doesn't make sense to do things that makes you feel bad/stressed in a world you don't know when you're going to die. so i don't do anything, and everything's comfy all of a sudden. but then, not doing anything that you would consider worth while takes its toll on you, and things you enjoy don't satisfy you anymore, and you can't find any other niche to satisfy yourself on a daily basis. drowning in anhedonia, you start to develop numerous mental illnesses. you lose your memory and cognitive abilities to a huge extent and end up a mental cripple. maybe you need that discomfort and stress to function healthily. but the important thing is to find the sweet spot that is part comfy part not

>nothing is going to happen


It's already happening, wizzer. Collapse isn't some big "event". Quite the contrary, it's a mostly gradual process. Like a corpse that's been left rotting away in the sun. It's just that we're currently in the late stages of that rot. Before you know it, even a corpse is nothing, but a pile of bleach white bones. Another, perhaps more apt, analogy would be like a car that's mid free falling in slow motion. Its inevitable crash against the ground only seeming fast once it's already happened. Such is the reality of our current shared predicament. As they say say however, ignorance & denial is bliss. You can believe what you wish in spite of the unpleasant facts, that's understandable, but I'd just recommend to, again, keep it in mind regardless and act accordingly, should one wish to do so. Perhaps feeding energy into a dead system is what you're in to. In that case, have at it. Personally, I'm just enjoying the fall. If you're in any way voyeuristic, like me, all the chaos to come, disparate as it may appear, will be quite entertaining to watch unfold.

>german manufacturing very weak for 2Q2019
>US manufacturing data last week was weak
>US PMI data from last week was very weak, weakest since like 2009 or something

>unemployment at record low levels just like 2007
>consumer confidence high just like 2007

Trump can call himself lucky if the recession can be delayed after the election

However, the real problem is that all central banks of the world are practically already at 0% interest rates. Exception is the US which is at pathetic 1.75% after trying to normalize since trump got elected. The emphasis is on "trying" because in Trumps "strongest economy ever" an interest rate hike to 2.25% in Sept. 2018 caused a downward spiral in equity markets immediately and lead Powell to stop again. This is how healthy our current economies are. We are so addicted to cheap money that a mere 2.5% interest rate would break our spines.

Does anyone know of or have experience with a condition in which somebody feels physical pain while in the presence of others? An online acquaintance of mine is a neet and is functionally a wizard (though he knows nothing of our community) told me that he feels this physical pain when he is around other people. He said that talking to people on the phone or online is ok though.

Social pain is when negative social interaction activates areas of the brain associated with pain, like emotional pain. Some people have it much stronger and things like depression make the pain stronger with more physiological effects. If he has anxiety or thoughts about being judged in a pathological way he might be activating social pain responses. So it can be his perceptions and maybe a heightened or abnormally acting social pain system. Just one thought.

They never fixed it the last time, they just put off dealing with the consequences for a little while while making it even worse. If you want to get an understanding of just how broken the system is, take a look at this article. The wealthiest people in this country actually pay the lowest effective tax rate out of anyone, and this is only on the funds that they have officially, their offshore funds are just funneled into secret tax havens that don't even get factored into this shit, if it were, the rate they pay would actually be much lower.

When rich people realized they could buy the government in the 70's, they bought it and changed it into something that works only for them. That is how societies die. The monetary policy of the central banks has all just inflated asset prices which is great if you happen to own a lot of assets, but if you're like the average working man living paycheck to paycheck, you own no assets and all that happened was the price of everything became so high you could no longer afford anything. They have masked this effect claiming there has been no inflation from all their money printing, but that's only because the capitalists continue to find ways to produce things cheaper through implementation of new technology and shipping their operations to wherever wages are the lowest (ie people are the most desperate and starving). The price of things like clothes has actually gone down so much that people can buy a new item every week if they want, even on a modest wage, this compared to the situation in the 20's and 30's where people would wear those big suits to show how rich you were because of how much cloth you could afford, but people were still limited to like one suit, is wildly different. Combine that with the introduction of technological marvels like smart phones and internet and everyone hasn't noticed just how poor they've become. The things that actually matter, like housing and healthcare, have all become so insanely expensive that we have to work like dogs just to get a bare minimum. The number of working homeless in this country exceeds half a million. That's people who have a job but cannot afford a home and are living in a car or a shelter or on the streets. The reality of the matter is that we're right back where we were before the great depression just with a cheap layer of makeup and glitz to make things look better.

>rich people

you know the problem is not even richfags
they have been greedy shits since forever
the problem is simply that our economic system is reliant on ever increasing amounts of debts but now the system is experiencing a slowdown because all the eligible people for debt are already to their necks in debt and take on more loans to consume

when all people who are able to, have taken out debt and bought flat screen tvs, mcmansions, pick up trucks and louis vuitton bags, eventually they reach their credit limit. No bank can lend them any more. This is when the system goes into recession mode
Because we need new debts to generate growth but there is no new growth because the consumers cannot take out more debts anymore

The problem has gotten worse now that nobody is shitting out children into the world anymore. So obviously, now all consumers of prime working age are stuffed with debts to their necks, and there is no new generation of slaves to take over and continue the ponzi.
>well then lets just let in immigrants
this is their fix for the situation
the immigrant arrives to america or EU with a credit score of 0$ in debts. He needs fancy clothes, electronic gadgets, house, car, the entire consumerist program

The corporations don't care how this is funded and who takes the risk if this guy cannot pay the debts. The important thing is that their revenues get high and management then can claim
>guise, during my genius reign over McBurger Inc. revenues went up 83%
>now I want a bonus of 1.3M USD, paid as stock of the company
>and then I want you to take out a loan and buy up your own stock so I can get my 1.3M in cash

Our capitalist system has started canibalizing itself.
We have decided we will not spend money on raising a new generation of humans, we will rather spend this money on toys and escapism (video games, designer clothes, travelling, alcohol and drugs).
So eventually, the economy will have a lack of consumers to buy anything at all
We decided we do not want shareholder value for companies but maximum profits for greedy CEOs
So our companies are not investing in the future, they are buying up their own stock and the companies finances get hollowed out completely

We have had a complete paradigm shift from long term investments to short term thinking
It will not end well IMO
Oh and well, the pension system is really fucked better not talk about this at all

When it comes down to it, I just don't want industrial civilization to die. For me, industrial civilization going away may as well be like the end of the world. If I can't NEET, get bux & enjoy current technology in peace than I'd much rather just have everything die, myself included. Industrial civilization, to me anyway, makes life at least somewhat bearable on this dismal planet. In some sense, that's why I hope capitalism can be overthrown and a more sustainable method of persistence can be found, so I can at least still NEET & enjoy some amount of the technology I enjoy now. Then again, exponential growth, total ecocide & destruction of planetary life support systems, the MPP (maximum power principle), and too many fucking people on this planet is what are, generally speaking, the real issues, which, granted, are further compounded by capitalism. Those dumb faggots in ER (extinction rebellion), ain't gonna change shit, but I applaud them for at least trying to secure a future for some semblance of civilization and, by extension, my NEETdom. It's far too late for course corrections, though. Among other things, the wobblies & commies should've never capitulated to FDR. That, to me anyway, was one of the final nails in the coffin and was pretty much the last turn off point to save civilization. Socialism could, and very well might have, sucked the planet dry just the same, but not to the same single-minded & rapacious insanity as is inherent in our current economic system, which values unrestrained & constant growth above all else, essentially modelling itself off of literal cancer. Oil as a finite & extremely dense form of energy, among other finite resources, should've been treated as the fucking spice melange and been put primarily towards development of scientific advancements & general research, thereby furthering ourselves up the proverbial tech tree to the sort of stuff that could've made humanity something truly special. This could never have happened under capitalism, but I feel like a scientific focused socialism could've made it a real possibility. But, oh well. It's all fucked now. We pissed it all away on military nonsense, plastic dog shit, minivans & other assorted crap. World may as well blow the fuck up now. Nature is a nightmare factory & civilization safely ensconced me from it. Nature on its own makes this planet a disgusting shit heap. It only has value insofar as it sustains civilization which, thanks to the economic paradigm, it can't do any more. As a result, let it die screaming in the coming/current omnicide for all I care.

The 'Georgia Guidestones' are a good example of what could've kept everything on track, at least in a more enlightened technological society that could rightly see nature as simply being our global life support system and only worthy of protection/concern insofar as it can accomplish that purpose to the benefit of maintaining technology & civilization. I mean, imagine if you lived on a space station and started tearing out all the life support systems because the metal was shiny and you wanted to start selling it to the other crew members to make a profit. That's literally what our current civilization did. Fucking absolutely retarded & suicidal. The tenants of the Guidestones should've been made a global mandate decades ago, utterly beyond reproach. With a more sane & intelligent species they would've been, but humans are dumb & greedy as shit, so of course we did the exact opposite of that.

Large swathes of my savings gone again. Hundreds. My father is spending half a hundred dollars on """groceries""" daily. I keep saying I'm going to cut him off (and have tried several times) but it's such a hassle to be cajoled and constantly harassed that I always break because it's easier to have an equilibrium and just not worry about it. My job contract ends in less than a month and I have less than a week's full pay in savings to show for it. I went from $900 to $360 this week.

I find him trying to hide it often. He offered to buy me lunch today so I wouldn't see the account balance on the receipt. This got me suspicious as such a kind gesture is very out of character for him so I checked anyways. A hundred dollars at a time pulled out of ATMs. Twenty dollars here and there. God knows how much spent on gas going back and forth from the store every night because my mother didn't want *that* brand of puke, she wanted *this* brand. Of course he had cool insistences that I somehow had okayed this when confronted. They are experts at this kind of financial manipulation and I've watched him do it to our entire extended family all my life.

I do honest work. I just want to take home a paycheck and not have to worry about this shit. Instead I am either being taken advantage of or getting extremely stressed out because they're guilt tripping me 24/7 or waking me up to ask for money while I'm dazed or just outright screaming and calling me selfish.

I look back and realize I've made two or three posts exactly like this over the last year. Nothing has changed. I am a fool and stuck in the same old predictable habits and routines. I cannot trust myself with money, but I especially cannot trust him or anyone else in my life. I am alone and constantly being chipped away at. I feel myself crumbling.

My thoughts on the matter precisely.
I wish I was more placid thinking about it though. Much like watching protagonists of a corny horror movie make stupid decisions and die off as a result, I feel absolutely livid and infinitely disappointed observing what we're doing, except there's a tinge of genuine dread mixed in, since my personal well-being is determined by these asshats' actions or lack thereof.
This disappointment of mine shares some traits with a particular kind of disappointment you feel when you see a promising child prodigy become an alcoholic, live in filth and die in a drunken stupor in a random ditch. Disappointment and vicarious shame. The things that could have been but never will be are by far the saddest ones for me personally.

What do you think will alleviate your loneliness?

Loneliness is a strange concept, especially when you consider that it can be just as intense when you communicate in person with familiar people on a daily basis. Maybe there comes a point when self-consciousness and prolonged intimacy with oneself (in both a physical and mental sense) makes loneliness your default experience, even when people try to form a relationship with you. The only way out of this, I guess, is to try and reacquaint yourself with genuinely enjoyable, or emotionally-moving experiences in the outside world, and to limit the intensity of your self-awareness in order to feel more attached to your immediate experience.

Another slow night in Georgia, occupying the same old space as yesterday. Bored & uncomfortable as all hell. Been a while since I've cut myself, so I guess I'll just do that.

How do other wizzies deal with the blood? Do you use a wash cloth, paper towel, or something else? Personally I just let the blood crust over the wound and wait for it to flake off over time. I don't even bother to bandage them, unless the wound is somewhat deep. I had one cut recently where the blood had dried over and I went to try and pick it off and the wound started bleeding everywhere again, so I was forced to bandage it. Crazy how I haven't gotten an infection yet, but the possibility for one is always there given how careless I am.

It's incredible how every time, after a good day or event, depression hits like an asteroid crashing the surface of Earth. Don't know if it's because I know those happy moments won't be eternal or I'm really not used to feel joy, live a peaceful delusional happy life, like normans usually do.

It took me about 9 years of compulsively scratching myself until I bled to get an infection. When I got one it spread all around my body and I couldn't stop myself picking the wounds so I had the infection for about a year and a half flaring up. I've only just started to beat the infection and keep the wounds closed. Sometimes it takes a long time.

I use a cliched hand razor, but I never clean it. When I'm not using it I just set it aside nearby, on top of some tissues. I've actually never got any blood on it funnily enough, but I'd imagine there's still lots of skin bacteria on it. After a long time has passed I'll end up grabbing a new one from the plastic block of other razors I have, which I also don't bother cleaning, even though I probably should.

>>209166

>It took me about 9 years of compulsively scratching myself until I bled to get an infection.


That must hurt. Next to cutting, I also sometimes bite myself, but for no matter how long, or how hard I've done it, I've never managed to draw blood. Just really bad bruises. Closest I got to blood was by biting the thinner skin near my hand, but even then all it did was leave a couple nasty looking marks. I should probably be thankful I never breach the skin though, since that might lead to an infection, what with mouth bacteria at play & all.

>When I got one it spread all around my body and I couldn't stop myself picking the wounds so I had the infection for about a year and a half flaring up.


All around your body? What does that mean? Like all your scratches/cuts were infected at the same time? Was there puss & blood & stuff? Did you have flu-like symptoms, or something? How did you put up with that for so long?

>I've only just started to beat the infection and keep the wounds closed. Sometimes it takes a long time.


Did you ever take antibiotics? Is it because you kept scratching the wounds open again that it took so long to get under control?

As an aside, I remember this one time when a wizzie posted this video in an old self-harm related thread of a guy whose arm was basically half necrotic due to how much he was cutting, with him even still cutting regardless of how bad it was. Even for me, that was pretty nasty. Doubt it'll ever get that bad for me, but, even so, I've sometimes been concerned about how I'll probably end up looking like Sam Neil at the end of Event Horizon someday, given how moderately addictive it is & how loose I am when I do it. The presence of my mother holds me back from going truly overboard with it, so I just try to stick to place where she won't notice. If she weren't around, I'd imagine that I probably would've marked up my chest, both arms, neck, or maybe even my face by now, which is why I mentioned the whole being concerned about someday looking like a hell-spawn Sam Neil type thing, after I stop giving a fuck and just give into the self-defeating insanity of it completely.

Thanks for researching it. It seems so real, I feel something like it must have happened in The Simpsons. Guess the only way to find out would be to watch the whole series over again. Watching Simpsons reruns used to be my hobby. But since I started watching everything online its been years since I watched an old episode. I can't tolerate anything less than HD.

Infections can travel around your blood. So it started in my leg and then I got chest infections where my heart was hurting and I had fluid in my lungs, and the wounds on my other leg started going like it.

I didn't have a serious puss infection in my wounds just kept leaking clearish fluid all day so i had to change my socks and trousers because they'd get soaking wet. The large areas of infection on my leg started growing long black unshaped hairs and then areas stopped growing hair at all. I guess I had flu symptoms and other stuff. Some days pains, some days trouble breathing, some days fatigue. I went through a few cycles of antibiotics which helped but then id pick the scabs or scratch open all the healed wounds and it came back. The doctors didn't really understand so I didn't like going back to explain. It was the scab picking and picking around the wounds that made it last, I had the same wound open for months at a time. Once you've got an infection subsequent infections are more common. I'm a depressed suicidal neet so it didn't really make much difference to me.

My mother was begging me saying if I didn't stop I'd lose my leg or I'd die. I sat in bed at night truly thinking id wake up dead from the heart pain but you know what, I'd wake up and scratch until there was blood running down my leg. I was crazed. My big wound is healing but I'm still picking little scabs on my other leg every few days and bleeding. I stopped pulling my toenails out a while ago but I struggle to kick this. I'm making progress now I'm doing better with my depression episodes where I'm in intense mental pain. I'm just a rabid dog really. Nothing anyone says really stopped me so I don't have useful advice, but it sucks. Wherever I scratch my leg I get the intense feeling that my leg is itchy and I need to scratch or, I could undo weeks of healing on one bad night.

In a fit of sheer stress, I ended up cutting off most of my wizardly mane of hair the other night. I've had long hair for many years now, but, as a hermit who never goes anywhere, it more just happened by accident as a result of my lifestyle. I'd actually been intending on cutting it for a while now due to how much of a hassle having long hair is for me to personally to deal with, (occasional tangles, takes longer to clean/dry during & after a shower, need to constantly have it tied up in bun so it's not in the way, etc.), but I'd always hold myself back in the fear I might immediately regret it once the deed was done and there was no going back. Well, long story short, but tonight was a different story. I just grabbed the scissors and started cutting and, before I knew it, my precious mane was all piled up in a lump in the sink beneath me. At that point, it sorta hit me how impulsively foolish this action that I'd just taken was and, next to cringing at myself, I began to get a bit anxious & regretful.

Fortunately, and as pathetic as it might sound, my mother came to the rescue and managed to sort it out to such a point where I actually now look a 100x better than I did previously with long hair. Even though, truth be told, she's actually a large part of the reason why I went into such a flurry to cut it in the first place, since, for a little while now, I've required her assistance when it came to drying my once long hair, which, itself, had led to a ton of prior stress. I got sick of asking her to do it, and she got sick of the actually having to do it, so it was inevitable that this would happen sooner or later. When it comes to the other night, I just couldn't stand the bullshit of it all any longer so, as I said, in a fit of stress I just finally decided to cut it, so as to, mainly, liberate myself of needing to hear one more word from my mother about how "unjustly" fucking put upon she is and she'd often throw that in my face whenever I asked her to do it.

Anyway, as it stands, I currently have a look most resemblant of pic related and I find it actually suits me quite well. I'm still a bit depressed about losing my former, more wizardly look, but even on the basis of the comfort/convenience level, things are so much better now. I still like the idea of long hair, but actually putting up with the maintenance of long hair is just too much to ask, at least for me. The fact that I don't have to do up my hair in a towel anymore & wait 10-15 minutes before needing to have my mother come & dry it is fucking wonderful. Now it's just 15-30 seconds with the hair dryer and boom. Done. No fuss at all. Exercising will also be way easier now as well, along with the proceeding shower afterwards. For a while now I've only exercised once every few days due to the presence of my long hair. With it gone, I'm free to do it every day if I want, which is quite freeing. If anything, now that I think about it, I actually wish I'd cut it sooner.

To be fair, I'm in my room enough that I dont think people ever get a good look at it, and I usually toss them to the side or in my closet, but I kind of wonder how noone has ever noticed or said anything.
The worst shit was when we threw away my old desk tho cuz that shit had hella cumstains on the bottom side. Noone said anything except my brother, and I just said I spilled coffee or something.

I thought about this thing recently: if I were to get professional help someday, if I were to talk with a shrink about my suicidal ideation and were confronted with a question "Why exactly do you want to kill yourself?" I wouldn't be able to answer. I'd look like a complete angsty bumbling retard.
I've never considered the philosophy of suicide. Even if I were to talk about myself, personal reasons why I want to kill myself, I wouldn't be able to produce anything of worth, all thoughts I've ever had on the topic were rather shallow or I forgot them already.
This is actually pretty bizarre. This imaginary therapist of mine hardly provides any arguments himself, but it feels like I've lost regardless; all the while I know and feel that I'm suffering, I've been suffering for years, things aren't exactly looking up, and that I would gladly end my life. I feel it, kind of acknowledge it, but can't articulate it all properly and in a way that would be convincing and irrefutable, so much so it would floor the doctor immediately and he'd pay for my euthanasia out of his own pocket.
Why must it be so hard?

Would watch it, but there doesn't seem to be an available stream of it anywhere. Why wouldn't they just release it for free so that everybody could watch? That way you get the message out more. Well, whatever. Either way, I respect his courage & stoic expediency in choosing to end his life on his own terms, instead of continuing to rot away in misery like myself, too cowardly to follow suit. In the trailer, I found it quite relatable how he mentions that he often wished that he'd just die every he time went to sleep and found himself disappointed every time it didn't happen, since I do the same thing. I wish I had the strength to off myself. Even if I lived in wherever the hell he's from and had legal euthanasia assisting me like him, I'd probably still bitch out at the last second due to survival instinct, despite the fact that I hate my life and just want to fall asleep and never wake up.

Oh god. My uncle called and said he had a job opening and my dad relayed that to me and it all ended with me losing my shit and literally banging my head into a wall and screaming at the top of my lungs. I told them they had emotionally neglected me my entire life and that they were failures as parents and that it was too late to change. They can't just expect me to be normal so it reflects better on them. I am incapable of being normal. I am just barely able to not kill myself and when they act like I'm ready to just go out and work a job while I have been lying in my bed for years doing nothing, it just shows how little they know me and pisses me off even more. They have done nothing to help me, they just let me rot. "Helping" me get a job is not helping me when I know that will only make me miserable. Why didn't you help me get friends? Why didn't you help me not want to kill myself? It is so selfish and self serving that I just lost it. On the bright side, maybe they will finally realize I'm not joking when I say I'm not mentally healthy enough to work a job and finally stop trying.

>if you aren't working on curing your depression it means you don't want to get better

Does that really make sense? I am too anxious to try meds because of all the side effects people report. I tried the most common ones and they didn't have any effect. With all the other ones there are always reports from people saying how it ruined their life how it gave them seizures, fatigue, anhedonia or even physical damage. All while there are many studies about how antidepressants are as effective as placebo.

Psychotherapy meanwhile requires me to consistently do stuff that I have no drive for. Everything just feels so exhausting. I feel like I need at least a week between any activity. Like I might muster the willpower to take a cold shower once but doing it every day sounds terrible. Or exercise. Or going to classes.

Made an inadvertently idiotic post on some random website the other day and, perhaps rightfully so I guess, got called a retarded cunt over it, among other things. It just still hurts is all. Both being viciously insulted and not being able to recognize & prevent making a buffoon out of myself due to my own unconscious, or I guess overt as the case may be, stupidity. It's kinda crazy how, in certain instances, some people will literally tear you to shreds over the most minor of offenses, either because they're simply bored, a cruel sadist, or both. Even in this instance though, my dumbness was more a lack of me not paying enough attention, so, again, I might have deserved being called out for it, but being ruthlessly shit on to boot just felt uncalled for. Think of it like the ostracized kid who tries to make a joke he thinks is funny, but is then laughed at incessantly when it falls flat on its face, ultimately only making himself look like the joke in the process. Being a weak, out of touch, pathetically fragile individual really is a death sentence when it comes to living on this horrid planet. Either way, I'm really too much of a sensitive pansy when it comes to the internet. I've known this for ages, but I just can't seem to help feeling deeply hurt when someone is needlessly mean or cruel to me. I'm simply a wimpy snowflake.

So did I, but I don't have time to waste now. My parents are getting older, my father is already fired for being too old, the family savings are decreasing steadily, and there is no such thing as bux in a third world country. I am too much of a coward to die. I have to integrate to society. I have no problem with masturbating my whole life away if I never have problem with money but I do.
