About to get a call back for my first "real" job, it's IT tech support.
While not excited about it, it's better than a supermarket and at least it's something I'm somewhat interested in. I happen to know they run debian servers, so hopefully I can work my way up to be a comfy sysadmin or something.
Wish me luck wizzies, truly going to miss being a NEET and I hope I never sperg at work or something like that.

Tech support is one step up from retail, hopefully you're at least doing it for internal company employees rather than incompetent boomer customers.

>I happen to know they run debian servers, so hopefully I can work my way up to be a comfy sysadmin or something.


I can't say for sure because I've never worked IT but I doubt you'll work with those servers much. Tech support for the place I worked was basically just in charge of helping people reset passwords for accounts, recover deleted files, or diagnose and fix other general computer issues.

It is for internal employees, thankfully.
I had my git repo and other things on my resume, so I think they looked at it and thought something like "this guy is a total nerd but unqualified, so we don't have to pay him much", seemed to work out in my favor though. I'm considering getting back in to education next year, because the company is supportive of upskilling their workers. I'm just worried that I wont be able to suddenly turn in to a functioning adult after being hikki for so long.

>I doubt you'll work with those servers much.

Yeah but that won't stop me from poking at them, sadly. I'm going to have to keep myself in check.

I have depression and PTSD, about 2 years ago I was admitted into a psych hospital after a suicide attempt.

Now my parents are trying to get me to apply for disability, though I'm not sure how I could possibly go about doing that?

What are my chances of actually being given disability?

Just wondering how other wizards/apprentices feel in regards to hygiene. I'm NEET and my bathing is inconsistent, nowadays I'll sometimes go 2-3 days without a bath for every bath I take, but this used to be much worse. I would go a week plus without one consistently, and I think my worst stint was 2 months without bathing. I also used to have unkempt long hair and it was matted and tangled. I floss every day and brush occasionally, I'm actually terrified of the dentist and so I treat my teeth a bit better than the rest of my body

All things considered my hygiene isn't too bad, though I currently have dandruff, which is annoying and makes it hard for me to feel truly clean.

There's nothing wrong with owning a dog, provided you have the time and energy to properly care for one.

The other guys are just purposefully turning around the issue on something as menial as owning a DOG instead of facing the real problem - the fact that they smell and nobody would want to be around them even if they DID leave the house.

Do any of you have BO issues? I remember in HS everyone (mostly teachers tho) complained about my BO despite showering every morning and using deoderant. I think that's why I became a socially isolated neurotic mess.

I do, but I haven't used soap for more than two years now. Nobody ever complained though. I can smell myself though and I really enjoyed the scent of my own body. But literally nobody mentioned it to me. I almost feel like succubi actually look at me with lust since I stopped using any deodorants/soap/shampoos. I just shower with water every day, nothing else. Maybe it lets go all the pheromones or something.

But I do remember some kids in school that just naturally smelled bad, maybe it was genes, who knows, maybe you were just predetermined to smell bad.

there is a guy that made the connection between horses habit of rolling the dirt and low body odor. he apparently isolated bacteria from the dirt that fix ammonia or something to prevent body odor. my guess is people with bad body odor have a fucked up bacterial colony. someone people have pretty good bacteria and they don't seem to smell. this is the basis for bacterial armpit transplants

Wizards from Latin America like me suffer twice: first, due economical problems like from where I live, Brazil and second, due cultural aspects of people be extrovert usually while wizards are introvert.
As some 32 yo wizard with mental health issues I struggle to keep a mask to live among the normies and succubi since they feel there something, but since I talk only the necessary and avoid social situations I'm able to carry on.
The succubi here in Brazil are the worst since they bully hard and spot virgins like myself in nanoseconds, but after be uncovered and humiliated several times I learned that is always wise avoid talk to them more than the absolutely necessary.

Wizards do not naturally produce feelings. We are thinkers. Feelings are a psychic overlay that falls on us by an outside source. The Demiurge. They are inconsistent, you can have multiple feelings for the same event. Antidepressants neuter feelings at the expense of the thinking function. They make you dumber. As science progresses, we shall reach our true forms as pure thinkers. I for one can't wait for the day that humans are robots with organic components for organic functions.

Dude I dunno wtf you're on about but we absolutely have feelings, it's in our biology. And obviously antidepressants are over-prescribed but if you actually get multiple second opinions you'll have a more accurate diagnosis. It takes 8 years to become a psychiatrist dude, I think they've studied the issue a little more than us. It's just a complex issue that's hard to diagnose perfectly.

For those who think, life is a comedy.
For those who feel, a tragedy.

For those who rebel, I dunno, a fucking war zone.

Don't get me wrong, I believe it, I myself tested at 94 iq and in school I remember people that were clearly much dumber than me, so I could only assume they sat somewhere in the 80s, or worse. These people should be castrated because they are a drain on society and will just keep creating more useless drains if they are allowed to reproduce.

The corporate ass-kissing normalfags will be well-rewarded for their fight against all efforts to prevent the destruction of the biosphere. It's hilarious to me how upset people get about the mere insinuation that we need to stop fucking over nature and ourselves. Just one of many examples of normalfags shooting themselves in the foot in order to deny reality and feel like the world is safe and just and that nothing they do is ever wrong.

Most hilariously, they're going to allow the burning of the amazon because "we need to protect the corporate freedom of developers". This likely won't be the final event to end a livable earth, but people are just gonna let it go and it will continue, until even the amazon is not protected from human "advance"ment.

I doubt anyone here is a BPD.

Well anyone thats a true Wizard™ at least as BPD's literally need to be in relationshits (and are very adept at being able to acquire them).

They also fear being alone like nothing else as part of their pathology whereas Wizard's thrive on solitude.

Most likely your psyche doc got your analysis wrong.

It happens.

Depression, bipolar disorder, perhaps some narcissism/megalomania and or avoidant personality disorder are moreso the realm of the Wizard than BPD.

Schizoid personality disorder too I think (as a pro Wizard disorder) but its been a while since I looked up what that is so take this with a grain of salt.

 No.156885

>>156884
There are studies looking at people with BPD that identify characteristics vs normal people. If I remember correctly there are issues of emotions not returning to "baseline" after a negative emotional event so a BPD person will not be able to feel "normal" for many hours, whereas a normal person may only take a few minutes. It also exacerbates the response to negative social events even on top of the normal exacerbation by depression.

I agree that it is unlikely that BPD will be what a wizards problem is but there are elements of the diagnosis which may be applicable to wizards in regard to heightened social pain or social emotional instability.

 No.156886

>>156884
Avoidant personality disorder is basically all the same underlying psychology as BPD except people deal with it by avoiding interaction altogether rather than that childish manipulative shit that borderlines do. It's all an expression of neurotic low self esteem and feelings of worthlessness and fears of abandonment.

depends on how objective you are as an observer of yourself

schizotypal personality disorder
aspurgers or autism
schizophrenia
body dysmorphic disorder
avoidant personality disorder
some depressive mood disorder of some kind(not bipolar because i never have manic states)

i have symptoms of all of these

Placate them with drug that make them feel blissful is good psychiatrist. All I know.
You really can increase someones mental acuity with drugs though! ((performance enhancing))
Bad psych is place you misdiagnosis and prescribe drugs with detrimental effect even toxic psychosis. Illicit drug like LSD is infamous for this but legitimate prescriptions may do it too. My theory: most shootings are done by people whom are improperly medicated.
