>tfw social anxiety has become a normie meme disorder like depression and OCD
>tfw the thing condemning me to a life of loneliness, isolation, and paralyzing fear is being used by others as a way to seem "lols0randum" and "alternative"
Judgment Day when?
>Judgment Day when?
The day you decide to pick up that gun and set an example.
Im sure if they actually knew people like us existed that they would stop and think for a moment that they're actually perfectly fine and we're the ones with the problems they think they have.
Here's the thing about real social anxiety/depression/avoidance personalty.....is that these types of people are NEVER seen by normies in society. It's a vicious cycle.
I'd just like for one time to not be parlayed with fear when a grill shows interest in my. I feel like a dear in the headlights.
I may look like a nor mine, but I'll never actually be one ;-;
>Judgment Day when?
S O O N
>have to be drunk to function on the level of normal people
>zero friends, no gf (obviously)
>can't even watch movies anymore because they remind me of what life could be like
>can't make phone calls, have to psyche myself up for days in order to send even a short email
>walk manually outside all the time, always feel scrutinized, whenever anyone laughs I immediately assume they're laughing at me
>going to tape up my windows with garbage bags soon
>"DUDE IT'S NOT A REAL DISORDER LMAO"
>mfw every bitch in my town has depression, insomnia, and (despite being active and popular on facebook) ''really bad social anxiety''
>Im sure if they actually knew people like us existed that they would stop and think for a moment that they're actually perfectly fine and we're the ones with the problems they think they have.
Nope. They would call you a creep and tell you to fuck off and just keep doing what they are doing.
>normals tell everyone that will listen about their illnesses and problems
>I am ashamed of my awkwardness and anxiety and feel like shit every time someone calls me shy or too quiet
I wish those norms would trade
Same as suucide
Every fag takes some pills and then gets free attention and sympathy
Guys don't give a fuck and go quietly die in the woods without changing their answering machine message
>As if PTSD isn't your self-inflicted disease.
>As if depression isn't your self-inflicted disease.
>As if schizophrenia isn't your self-inflicted disease.
As if retardation isn't your self-inflicted disease. Fucking kill yourself
>You just never learned how to swim, there's no such thing as fear of swimming, herp derp
I hope you see how retarded that sounds.
Or more accurately:
>Some guy never learned how to swim, plus had a terrifying experience of near-drowning, and now has PTSD as a result.
>"There's no such thing as fear of swimming"
I am on meds for social anxiety, but I don't have a habit of socializing so although I no longer fear interaction I still don't know how to do it.
Social anxiety is caused by a low level of neurotransmitter GABA. Anyone with social anxiety can cure themselves by taking supplements that increase GABA levels or psychiatric drugs that do the same.
The reason why people feel normal on alcohol who suffer from it is because alcohol is a drug that releases GABA.
If social anxiety wasn't real then howcome GABA drugs make it go away?
One time a bunch of teenage girls took an interest in me while I was on holiday. I was terrified. I saw them on the road up ahead of me, waiting to talk to me, so rather than deal with them I waited until I was out of sight on a bend in the road, broke off and ran into a field. I ran past several "No Trespassing" signs and into somebody's garden. I didn't know who the fuck lived there. Seemed like a very isolated farm. I had to slip past some barbed wire fencing to get in. This was less frightening to me than dealing with girls.
Being an attractive person with social anxiety is even worse.
People think there is nothing wrong with you at all because you're attractive, people will assume you are charasmatic.
Havent left the house in four years.
>highschool Psychology class
>beautiful twins named Stacy and Lacey, blonde and solid 9/10s each
>both involved in dance, cheering, band, clubs, extremely popular, have bfs
>Stacy has an announcement one day, in the middle of class
>"I suffer from social anxiety and have panic attacks and..."
>goes on long, teary-eyed rant about how she suffers and everyone is sympathetic, big presentation coordinated by teacher about her social anxiety
>same class, some popular girl with 1000 friends, one of the most friendliest girls in school, does some powerpoint presentation about her cutting herself
>actually cries, talks about depression and how alone she is
>meanwhile has a boyfriend and dozens of orbitors, involved in several extracurricular, extremely well-liked and obviously fucking normal
>normies all start a "be nice" club
>go around putting uplifting notes on everyone's lockers and act "nice" to people
>these same people turn around and bully/beat up people like me the same day
The fucking disconnect with the normies is insane. It's like the women that cry about their loneliness while having 8 dicks and 20 friends on standby, where the fuck do they get this idea from? It's insulting to witness this
I know social anxiety and loneliness is not a contest, but jesus christ she's just blatantly dishonest about her condition in order to get some "quirky nerd gurl xD" points.
>People think there is nothing wrong with you at all because you're attractive, people will assume you are charasmatic.
The worst part is when girls take an interest until they notice your anxiety and are turned off.
They are seen by normies and made fun of
The bitchesthat giggle at you for fumbling with your words or say stuff like "why are you so quiet anon ;)" are the ones that call themselves 'so shy and awkward xd' to seem cute and attract chads
Don't worry anon, women love introverts, see?
A person with real depression or social anxiety doesn't brag about it on Social Media or make up infographs. Hell, you don't even know they exist.
They avoid all social interaction to avoid problems or embarrassment.
>"I totally have social anxiety!"
>goes to college and works as a waitress and has hundreds of friends on facebook
>people accuse me of having autism
>wondered if I might actually be aspie
>none of the symptoms fit
>random people will still tell me I am
You know to be fair, it is possible to have social anxiety and still have a life. They just have to try a bit harder to things like that.
>almost anybody can get into college, and these days it's virtually mandatory. the introverted and socially anxious have no choice but to apply and attend if they want to succeed in life
>having a job is also mandatory. One may work as a waitress but they may absolutely hate that kind of work because of how much shit you have to put up with from other people
>The # of facebook friends has little to do with how many actual friends you have
Same shit happened to me.
I lost a group of friends because they all started spreading rumours that I had autism and I had enough of it and grabbed the cunt that started it by the throat and broke his nose
Oh FUCK THIS THIS THIS
Especially when you're walking down the street and some QTs stare at you but you can't do shit because your eyes start to water, your throat starts to close up and swell, and your fingers start to shake
>But Attractive ppl can't have social anxiety xDDD
We have been ugly at some point.
>tfw have ocd
>tfw it was bad as a child
>tfw had to do things in sets of fours, walk on tiled/wood floors in certain ways, had to return to school locker to ensure that lock was indeed locked
then some ssri intervention changed my brain chemistry enough that I forgot about my obsessions and weakend my compulsions. Finally off the ssri after six years and I now effectively manage my ocd. Feels good man.
I cringe every time I hear this word. I understand that it's a real thing, but the word has just been so thoroughly used that it's lost meaning and I assume anyone claiming it is some tumblrina.
I ducking hate this. Normalfags preaching their "acceptance" and "tolerance" and "kindness" and then turn around and treat people they arbitrarily dislike like shit.
The hypocrisy is staggering.
Have you spoken to a normie recently? I'm more charismatic than most people. Most people are incredibly boring and interact more often on social apps than in reality
People actually have called me weird for phoning them, and also saying that I prefer to arrange to meet up anywhere just to talk. People basically just go outside to fucking instagram what they are doing. They just sit there on their fucking phones and look like they are going to shit themselves if they can't use the thing for whatever reason. God forbid there be a lull in conversation and there are no phones to retreat into
It's real, but the only people who actually have it have been in legitimately traumatizing experiences (getting shot, falling out of a building, insane amounts of abuse growing up, war, etc)
I think I read somewhere that it said it has to do with constantly being in a state of 'fight or flight' mechanisms, where 'normal' people wouldn't even dip into that under the same circumstances.
So yeah, most of the tumblrs who say "omg i got ptsd from my teach saying womyns get equal pay...WE MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT omgggg I have ptsd now!!!' are faking.
source - I've been diagnosed with ptsd from three different psychiatrists/psychologists
When it comes to my anxiety I can interact with people fine, however I can't do certain things on my own.
Gym, Barber or getting a job scares me so much I start shaking. I could go gym with friends if they decided to go though.
The thing is the only people that will openly tell you that they have it (like most mental illness) are the ones that don't actually have it or have mild versions of it and ham it up for attention, which is fucking revolting.
I have a friend who has it and his panic attacks are legitimately terrifying. Hes been through serious shit and he has to take heart medication because his attacks can quite literally give him a heart attack.
The fact that fat cunts who are upset that people make fun of them for being fat have falsely co opted this illness makes me physically angry.
Housebound for 10 years here.
Can't even handle getting disability.
Took me 6 years to be able to post online.
The catch? I'm like 9/10 and no family or visitors believe my mother when she tells them.
Believing in God doesn't preclude rational thought. This is a fallacy that's been repeated so many times, many people think it's truth.
Also, the whole magical bearded man in the sky thing is nothing more than juvenile mockery. No Abrahamic religious text describes God's attributes in that way, you intellectually lazy fuckwit. You don't even read shit before you try to mock it yet you blame other people for lacking rational thought.
WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE THIS WAY
>female introvert: has lots of friends, a chad, goes to parties, but spends about 10 minutes alone every day
>male introvert: doen't speak to a human being for weeks at a time and eventually commits suicide.
>all these people throwing the word sociopath around
Normies aren't sociopaths, they're just THAT fucking shallow and incapable of acknowledging that not everybody fits the same mold. Sociopaths are completely incapable of empathy or compassion, they see and interpret the world in a way that most people would find incomprehensible. You'd know if you were talking to one.
I once saw a documentary about social anxiety. I think it wasn't in English though.
There was a guy who was over 40, an office worker, and he mostly hang around by himself. Didn't talk much to people in the office either. Coworkers tolerated him, as in they didn't bully him or anyhting, but they thought he was weird. The reporter tried to make him socialize with some random person out in the street, but he said "why? what's the point".
Im a sociopath by definition but wouldn't call myself one. I have a lack of empathy and rarely feel emotions like most normal people. I still have emotions but they are a much duller than most people. I can't remember the last time I felt overwhelming happiness or sadness. Probably when I was on drugs but that doesn't count.
I'm also pretty normal by most peoples' here standards. I have a job, a life and people who I could call friends but I'd much, much rather be alone.
I know that feel (or lack of), except I have these more exciting times (read as "actually feel some emotion") in my life whenever I try to do something that I've never done before, be it positive or negative, but doing anything for the 2nd time I never feel that again.
Not really. If you mention this issue on reddit/r/anxiety or other social anxiety forum, you will hear:
>Every one deals with it differently
>You don't have monopoly on mental illness
>Good, people are raising awareness to it
Tbh, I think raising awareness actually made it worse for us, because now it seems that it's a perfectly managable issue, so we have absolutely no excuse for failing so hard.
My brother is a shut-in who lives in his room at our parents' house. He only comes out at night, to go to the bathroom and get food from the kitchen. He hasn't left the house in years. He probably owns piss bottles and shit jugs. His blinds are always shut, I'm guessing he hasn't seen sunlight in a long time. When i'm at their house, and i go to the kitchen at night, sometimes there's a beastial smell, my mother told me he doesn't shower and never has his clothes washed, meaning he's worn the same dirty clothes for years. He is about 30 now and has lived like this since he was roughly 17, although it didn't start that badly, but it got increasingly worse.
Basically, you're saying every person with social anxiety should live like him, because actually trying to defeat your anxiety is pointless and means your anxiety isn't real.
But in both of the movies people care about the protagonist.
In Her, he has friends and a gf. In Lars the entire village comes together to accomodate the autist with his doll.
Social anxiety becoming a normie meme self disorder is how I went from omega to alpha
Eventually everyone i noticed started acting like huge pussies so I stopped caring about their invalid opinions and began opening up to be myself
All the glory to God
>Basically, you're saying every person with social anxiety should live like him, because actually trying to defeat your anxiety is pointless and means your anxiety isn't real.
You can't understand the way he feels because you literally can't even imagine having a complex that bad. He's not CHOOSING to be disgusting. He doesn't like living that way.
You trivialize other people's problems because yours are so minuscule and that's your only point of reference.
This thinking is the whole point of this thread. People taking serious issues, pretending to have them for whatever reason, and as result, those problems are taken less seriously.
sorry robots i think this is my fault because i open up about my depression at work and i would talk about ocd. I think women are pretending to have depression and ocd because they want to attract the attractive guys that have it. i just happen to be a robot that is attractive because i turn my life around.
