Ask a Schizophrenic anything. I may take a while to reply sometimes, be patient.
Free (you)s for all posters!
>Have you ever done any psychodelic (and which) drug
I have not. But I intend to try LSD at some point in my life.
The only recreational drugs I've tried are weed and cocaine.
>Do you fear you may harm someone?
>And how do those drugs affect your condition?
Weed makes me pretty psychotic but makes me feel sane. It's a little hard to explain.
>Then what's the point of being schizophrenic?
None of your questions make sense, anon.
>who do you main in super smash bros. melee for the nintendo gamecube?
I didn't play it on the Gamecube, I played on the N64. I don't remember who I played though.
>Why you are such a feg?
>Why havent killed yourself yet?
Don't feel like it.
>gimme my (you)
>you've literally made this thread at the exact same time every single day
No, I'm pretty sure I haven't.
>mfw you're actually Alice with MPD
MPD and Schizo are nothing alike anon.
>Did you just missgender me?
Shit, I didn't mean to offend you, anon!
Bumping with some schizo art
When was the last time YOU showered?
I can't shower, the water demons will eat my balls
>that is not art...
Get out of here, Satan. I won't be having any of your negativity.
>what medication you taking?
None, I avoid all medication if possible.
>do you have a liberal arts degree?
What are you even talking about?
Are your hallucinations, be it auditory or what have you, present all the time or just in episodes?
Also I've always wondered if my really bad manic episodes parallel schizophrenia, but I know it's way too subjective to actually find out.
My "best" episode had me stand up in class and claim I knew the door, which makes no sense to me now, and then claim it was too loud, which I remember a loud knocking sound which I think was the kid next to me tapping his pencil. Manic depression keeps shit interesting at least. Never know who you'll wake up as.
>I can't shower, the water demons will eat my balls
Shit, you need to get your shower exorcised.
>What are you even talking about?
Heh, At least I wasn't the only one who didn't know what the fuck he was saying.
>Are your hallucinations, be it auditory or what have you, present all the time or just in episodes?
My visual ones are primarily when I have episodes. They still happen when I'm not, but they're much, much less vivid. The auditory ones are kind of always around. I always hear music, voices or an annoying ass ringing in my head.
>Also I've always wondered if my really bad manic episodes parallel schizophrenia
I would imagine they are similar in some regard. But, I myself have never had a manic episode so I can't really say. If you want to explain what it's like a bit I'd be more than glad to elaborate on any similarities.
>after a nasty particularly wank session.
Ew anon, that's lewd.
>Ever smoked skunk?
I sure have.
>Do you ever get 'nice' hallucinations?
I've had "nice" auditory hallucinations, like hearing pleasant music or a voice talking about something I found interesting
>Eg: voices telling you "You're a cool guy. Don't do drugs. Stay in school. You have beautiful eyes".
Kek, not quite like that.
>Explain schizophrenia to me, as detailed as possible.
That's a really broad request. It's a mental disorder that's categorized by social withdrawal, disorganized thinking and or speech. People suffering from it can (but not always) suffer from hallucinations, both visual and auditory.
I'm sure there's a list of the symptoms somewhere on the interweb.
>What's this Chinese cartoon character you're obsessed with?
>Do they have schizophrenia?
No, she's a vampire.
>Do people treat you differently after hearing you have schizophrenia?
Sometimes, I don't really tell many people though.
>Are you scared of telling people?
Nope, I just don't, it makes things easier. The only people I tell are people I am close to.
>Does it affect your everyday life?
It makes it difficult to be social. I often wind up having anxiety or paranoia attacks in social situations.
>Or is it chill af?
To an onlooker it looks chill, I don't display my symptoms outwardly. If I'm having an anxiety attack, for example, no one would ever know.
>Do you think it made the schizophrenia worse?
I'm not sure if it made it worse overall, but whilst I am high it does make it worse.
Studies have shown correlation between smoking and schizo. But no causation. It might be that schizos just like smoking the dank more.
You talked about weed, how about the effects of other drugs? I have heard that heroin completely stops the voices that's why there're so much schizos on H. Have you ever gotten violent? Why are you not taking medication? Have you ever had a sexual hallucination?
>how about the effects of other drugs?
The only other drug I've tried is cocaine, and it just made me feel like I wanted to go really fast and made my mouth feel funny, and it tasted like shit.
>I have heard that heroin completely stops the voices
That's a pretty big tradeoff though. I'd rather deal with the voices than to be an H addict.
>Have you ever gotten violent?
I have, especially when I was younger. I had no impulse control and if a violent thought came into my head I just acted on it. I got into fights at school and tried to kill my younger brother numerous times.
Now, I still get the thoughts, but I rarely act on them anymore.
>Why are you not taking medication?
Side effects, and I don't take any medication. Not even pain meds, nothing at all unless it's for something life threatening.
>Have you ever had a sexual hallucination?
Yes, I have actually came without touching my dick because of them.
>Can i take a shit on your chest?
That's nasty anon.
>While a homeless guy fap to us?
>If you had a super power, what would it be?
The ability to bend and shape time.
>Do you have a job etc?
>Ever tried lucid dreaming?
I have, but no success.
>Do you have to see a shrink?
No, I don't have to.
Pretty close, actually.
My dogs talk to me, should I be concerned?
>My dogs talk to me
I think most dog owners say that.
>should I be concerned?
Isn't that something you should decide?
>Yes, I have actually came without touching my dick because of them
your making being skitzo sound fun.i had a sexual hallucination, or more of a sexual blending of the senses on lsd.twas spectacular.
Any skills or hobbies you're particularly good at?
Have you a gf?
>your making being skitzo sound fun
It can be, anything CAN be fun though.
>Is your name Gabrielle?
>Any skills or hobbies you're particularly good at?
I'm pretty good at reading people, and really good at analyzing stuff. My hobbies mostly include vidya.
>I wish I could be schizo
No you don't.
That's not really what I was wondering about, actually.
I should've formulated it less broadly.
I know someone that's schizophrenic as well. I was wondering why when they withdraw socially, when they isolate themselves they become.. let's say bitchy. Is it common for schizophrenics to become psychotic and self-destructive? To say things they don't mean?
They always say they regret their words afterwards and apologize but it's very hard to trust someone that can be so hurtful during episodes.
Their hallucinations can be both visual and auditory. I don't know how frequent however I do know shit's frightening.
I don't really know how much it's possible to help a person affected by it, so I'm asking you.
I'm still fairly clueless on the subject but trying to understand it better.
well OP i was schisophrenic aswell 3 years ago, then i did shitload of mephedrone, cocaine, heroin and some mdma + acid for like a year while being on abilify antipsihotic. Then i read a study online how mental illnesses are usually caused by lack of certain mineral/vitamin in the body, so i began using selenium + zync + magnesium + vitamins B complex, C, E, D, went to rehab where I had many hours of talking with my therapist and voila - no meds or psichosis/schisophrenic traits for over a year now, epic win
>why when they withdraw socially, when they isolate themselves they become.. let's say bitchy
It's hard to say, as I am not that person. But usually, when someone with Schizo withdrawals it's because they have a lot going on in their head. And dealing with people can be really taxing, and irritating.
>Is it common for schizophrenics to become psychotic and self-destructive?
It really depends on the person, and what kind of Schizo they have. It's pretty common though.
>To say things they don't mean?
>They always say they regret their words afterwards and apologize but it's very hard to trust someone that can be so hurtful during episodes.
If they say they didn't mean it, they probably didn't. But, I'm not that person, so I don't know.
>I don't really know how much it's possible to help a person affected by it, so I'm asking you.
You can help a lot by just being around, and trying to understand. If they pull away, don't try to force yourself on them. That will only make things worse. Just let them know you're around, and make yourself known. Try to understand what they're going through.
Well, Schizophrenia can just go away on its own.
There's not a lot known about it, there's no known cause, or cure.
Glad you got past it though.
>Give example pls?
Like being able to read people's "state of mind", knowing how they feel just by looking at them, and watching their movements, the words they use, etc.
>You mean literary analysis?
No, just analysis of stuff in general. Finding patterns in things, etc.
>Also fave book?
I don't read.
>Do you have a lot of free time?
>Do you know any programming languages?
I dabbled in Java a while back, but not enough to say I "know" it.
well in my case i didnt hear the voices under the effects of H because i was loudly saying stuff that the voices would usually say to me, so while high i would often accuse roomate of being an egoistical dickhead because of reasons and then we would yell at each other. So basicly the effects weren't really what i expected sometimes.
Once i was hanging with a guy, we shot up and then i spent more than 3hours being completely spaced out and talking to nearby bushes because i thought they were people... nice fail huh.
also i dont think voices should be called voices but instead be called 'loud thoughts' lol
>Nice dude, Java's where it's at.
I know, I want to learn it, but at the same time I can't be bothered to.
>why do you make these threads?
I don't really have a specific reason. It's just to kill some time.
>You ever jerked off to that anime girl?
but she's so cute
>Good morning, anon!
>How have you been?
Pretty good, can't complain.
>And how was your interview yesterday?
It went fairly well, shit took forever. Gotta wait for a call from them to see if I got the job.
I've thought about it, but I don't like writing.
Yes, she is.
she can also change her from to make Hiitagi mad.
I've talked to you before, you're pretty cool.
>I've talked to you before
>you're pretty cool.
You're not the first one to say that.
Just an anon. I sometimes talk to you as Araragi but not always
And I'm sure I'm not the first to say that. It's fun to talk to another person who likes the series.
I really need to finish the series one of these days. I can't bring myself to sit down and watch it though.
>Can you give a hint of the position you want?
Data Input clerk
>Good luck to you, anon!
You'll like Shinobu Mail and Nise. There is a lot of Shinobu in there. How far did you get? You might like some of Koyomi. I enjoy some of the other girls more than Shinobu but she's such a great person. I have a few figurines of all the girls
Are you a person of faith?
Have you considered that you may actually be hearing the voices of good and evil?
I got up to Season 2, Nadeko. It was the last thing that was released when I was watching the show.
I like most of the girls except Koyomi, she's kind of annoying. Hitagi and Shinobu are the two best I think
>Are you a person of faith?
You can say that. I am Pantheist, but I don't believe in any personal God, such as Jesus or Mohammad, etc.
>Have you considered that you may actually be hearing the voices of good and evil?
I do kind of believe that on some level, of the voices I hear, one is "good" one is "bad" and one is "neutral".
Koyomi is the guy's first name. Did you mean Tsukihi or Karen? They both have the last name of Araragi.
Ah so you saw Kaiki handling Nadeko but not the stuff after. Check out Owari you might enjoy some of the Ougi stuff.
>Koyomi is the guy's first name
I meant Nadeko. Had too many thoughts going at once. kek
>Check out Owari you might enjoy some of the Ougi stuff.
I want to rewatch from the start before I continue, it's been too long since I've seen the show. That's the reason I haven't picked it back up yet, been waiting for everything to be released.
Yep that's "us" in the middle.
The holy and the unholy spirits tugging us back and forth.
Trying to force us to choose.
>Yep that's "us" in the middle.
No, that's not me. There are a total of 4 voices, including my own.
Eh, ignore bake. It ain't helpful if you remember Shinobu and Hiitagi. You can jump in whereever if you remember what Kanbaru is up to.
Owari part 2 is coming out soon. Have you checked out the Kizu movies? They're all Shinobu, Araragi, and Oshino all the past of the series. They'll be fun for anyone who watched bake in the past.
Yeah Nadeko is arguably the worst girl of the series even if she is the most realistic girl. Makes sense when you think about it lol.
>Eh, ignore bake.
I like Bake though.
>It ain't helpful if you remember Shinobu and Hiitagi.
They're my two favorite characters.
>Have you checked out the Kizu movies?
Nope, I haven't seen them. I'll probably wind up watching them at some point.
>Yeah Nadeko is arguably the worst girl of the series even if she is the most realistic girl.
I mean, in some ways she is. But her personality feels just bleh, and overthetop qt. I generally like the quiet cute grill, but not her.
Hitagi actually seems the most real to me, personality wise.
Nadeko's whole thing is that she is disgustingly cute as a defense mechanism. It is every effective for what it is.
Thats what i mean. If you remember and enjoy hiitagi and Shinobu then rewatching Bake won't reinforce those characters. it is fun to rewatch to see them again but you gotta see the newer stuff to get more insight on the two. I enjoy listening to Bake when I'm drawing. it's such a great opening season.
Watch the Kizu's they're really fun. I'm still waiting for the Kizu 3 on BD.
Oh shit i forgot my doujin.
It's pretty nice. A bit strange.
>how does someone knows if hes actually developing schizophrenia or its just depression/anxiety?
A psychologist is your best bet. If you only have depression or anxiety it probably isn't Schizo.
>Thats what i mean. If you remember and enjoy hiitagi and Shinobu then rewatching Bake won't reinforce those characters.
It's less about reinforcing anything, I haven't seen the show in over a year, and I don't remember anything about the show other than the names of the characters and really vague descriptions about them. Shinobu is a vampire, Hitagi is a self-proclaimed Tsudere, that's it. I won't pick up the show from a random point. That's the whole reason I stopped watching it. I can't stop watching something from season 2 and pick it back up at season 2.
>Nadeko's whole thing is that she is disgustingly cute as a defense mechanism.
It's what makes her annoying. It works on Ararararagi though, cus he's dumb.
>Watch the Kizu's they're really fun.
I plan on it at some point, I just don't know when. I'll probably watch them after I finish the animu.
Fair enough i suppose. i found watching kizu made Bake, as a rewatch, more fun since Tsubasa was more developed. Everyone has their own paces with long running shows. Take your time but I'm sure you'll enjoy either route you take. I hope you have fun rewatching Bake and watching Hiitagi win your heart again.
I am quickly crossing the fade of drunk and sleep. until next time.
>I am quickly crossing the fade of drunk and sleep
sleep well, anon.
>i found watching kizu made Bake, as a rewatch, more fun since Tsubasa was more developed.
Hmm, I may consider watching Kizu first then. I'll see.
>I hope you have fun rewatching Bake
Thanks, anon, I'm sure I will.
>Have the voices you hear changed over the years?
The "voice" changes, yes. But not the personality associated with it.
>Do you have any kind of emotional attachment to these voices?
I do. Sometimes they take the voice of someone I know, or like.
>Do the have names?
>Would you miss them in they were gone?
Probably... It would be like a part of me dying.
>Do you have special super schizotard powers?
I have the ability to traverse through universes.
Awesome, have a good day there Shizo-Shinobu-Anon.
>Do you have special super schizotard powers?
Oh, I can also read people "state of mind" and read their emotions too.
>are you dom or sub
Probably sub, but I flip back and forth between both.
>Describe a psychotic episode, is it overwhelming fear?
That's a really tough thing to describe with a broad question like that. Do you mean what emotions are associated with it?
It's mostly anxiety and paranoia. Not really fear
No questions here. Someone in my family got diagnosed with some sichizophrenia conditions after years of being a druggy. Shit's better now but occasional episodes still happen.
So... yea take care mate.
>diagnosed with some sichizophrenia conditions after years of being a druggy.
Yea, drugs, and Schizo don't go so well together. Especially prolonged usage, I doubt the drugs caused it, but I'm almost certain they played a role in its onset.
>Shit's better now but occasional episodes still happen.
Glad to hear things have improved a bit though, that's good.
>Isn't that a little dull
It's better than dealing with people in customer service, or some other shitty job.
The pay is pretty decent. The places I've seen hiring are around 13-16 USD/H. Which is more than enough for me.
Ever been on holiday? Did you enjoy it? Where was the best place you went?
Have any objects you have a sentimental attachment to? What is the object(s)?
>Ever been on holiday?
I went on holiday with a friend and his family, we stayed in a nice ass condo in Orlando, Fl
>Did you enjoy it?
Hell yea, it was a blast, until his sister stabbed him in the eye accidentally in the pool.
>Where was the best place you went?
Chicken Alfredo with Parmesan, mmm..
Oh that's a tough one. I have a few.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

K, continuing with more weird questions
Ever had an inexplicably lucky or gleeful moment?
Bike, scooter, rollerblades or skateboard?
Fav flavour of jello/icecream?
Fav subject when you were in school?
Have you ever made a list of people you disliked?
It's one I found myself, I'm not great at math but it's something that really intrigued me.
add the numbers between x and n
numbers between 2 and 4 = 3
numbers between 3 and 6 are 4 and 5. 4+5=9
you'll find something quite interesting if you do this with other numbers. I don't know how long this pattern continues.
3, and any number divisible by it.
>Ever had an inexplicably lucky or gleeful moment?
None that I can recall off hand.
>Bike, scooter, rollerblades or skateboard?
Can't think of one off the top of my head.
>Fav flavour of jello/icecream?
>Fav subject when you were in school?
In normal school it was science.
In college it was Psych.

>f(x) = (x-1)*1.5x
Still mumbo jumbo to me, I can't into algebra, really.
What meds are you on, and what side-effects do you experience from them? I was diagnosed with psychotic disorder not otherwise specified, and I'm on zyprexa 10 mg. Made me eat more and gave me the occasional erectile dysfunction.
How do you cope with the symptoms with out using medication?
Is it difficult to function on a daily basis?
Particullarly at work, or socially.
How do you deal with the paranoia and manic episodes?
>why do you keep posting every day ?
I don't post every day.
>Really? This is highschool algebra.
I'm pretty retarded when it comes to algebra. Everything I know is self-taught, the public schooling system failed me, so I basically dropped out in middle school.
>replace x with the value you want to find the value for.
That's what I thought but the f(x) bit threw me off.
>What meds are you on
None, I don't take medication for anything, unless it's absolutely necessary.
>Made me eat more
I think that's a common side effect for most anti-psychs
>gave me the occasional erectile dysfunction.
yo that sucks anon. Have you tried to get any other meds?
>surely you must have a favourite sport
No, not really. MMA is kinda cool, but I don't watch it.
>bike master race
I love me some bikes mang.
>you like plain vanilla?
I love plain vanilla.
>Middle school dropout
>Psychology in college
Nah, it checks out
>How do you cope with the symptoms with out using medication?
I'm used to most of them, so they don't really bother me. The only things that I can't really deal with too well are the anxiety and paranoia.
>Is it difficult to function on a daily basis?
It can be. There are times when my anxiety levels get so high that I can't even leave my house. I won't go hang out with friends, or answer my phone, etc.
>How do you deal with the paranoia and manic episodes?
It's difficult to put that into words.
>What keeps you goin man?
Doing stuff I enjoy
>Also any cool dreams?
Not recently, but when I do have dreams they're really vivid.
yes, I officially dropped out of school in the 9th grade. But I basically never attended school from 6-9th grade, I missed over half the days.
I went to get my GED and studied Psych for a year in college then dropped out of that too.
People who take psychology in college
a) Can take it in a college that would accept them with bad grades
b) Don't have to be very smart
hi, OP! i was diagnosed as schizo not too long ago actually and am pretty sure i'm only in the onset stages of my dealio. i think i've got a decent handle on myself so far, possibly, but was also wondering if you had any particularly terrifying visual hallucinations and how you deal with them? it would mean a lot!
Where I'm from psychology is seen as kind of a joke.
There are a few state institutions near me that only require you to have passed science to take psych
>You ever have a poop so big that it feels
I'm sure it's happened at least once or twice. But I don't keep a log (kek) of my shits so I don't remember specifically.
>had any particularly terrifying visual hallucinations
I wouldn't say any were terrifying per se, but I've had scary ones, like having animals appear on me, (snakes, spiders, etc) and I occasionally see faces in windows (can be kinda spoopy but I'm used to it)
>how you deal with them?
You just have to be aware that what you're seeing isn't real. When they first start happening you'll get overwhelmed and won't know what to do. But try to remain calm, that's really all you can do. Being afraid is okay, but try your absolute best not to act on that fear.
>college is university right ?
Yes, and no.
>My boy! My comrade
>My question is did you finish my picture yet
Nope, I actually wound up losing the paper somehow.
>Hey OP.. Is there a way to contact you besides 4chan?
You can add me on Kik: SchziOP
I don't want your dick pics
thank you, OP. it means a lot that you answered!
>try your absolute best not to act on that fear
that's actually really good advice, but, is fleeing that bad? usually i stiffen up and close my eyes really tightly. i'm always seeing spoopy shit (e.g; figures, sheet-white aliens in hoodies with chasms for eyes, hands curling over the edge of my bed). sometimes i can even feel/hear the bed or the floorboards creak behind me.
my partner helps me deal with these when he is present but, that isn't a reliable safety i can fall back on, really.
oh, and the laughter. the laughter is terrible.
Not OP and have no clue about schizophrenia, but I used to get sleep paralysis a lot as a kid.
When I started seeing those terrors as a gateway to lucid dreaming, I stopped seeing anything. Food for thought.
Also, when I used to see really scary stuff I just ridiculed it by imagining it in a comical situation, e.g. when I saw long-legged eldrich abominations I imagined them in roller skates.
>that's actually really good advice, but, is fleeing that bad?
Fleeing is bad, don't try to run from your problems. They will just follow you. Learn what your hallucinations are, so you know when you shouldn't be afraid. You will probably still be afraid, even after you've dealt with them for some time. But it will be a lot easier.
>Make a new one then
I may at some time. No promises though
>why dont you post only the cute vampire girl avatar ?
What? 99% of my posts are of Shinobu.
Anon, dicks are gae.
I'm not gae.
I wish I could be a weeb. It seems so cozy, so fun, and such a great thing to embrace. Plus it is filled with so many waifus to make you happy. But I cannot get over the overreactions it seems occurs in your general anime. What is wrong with me and how do I fix myself?
You just gotta find the anime that fits your taste.
It's a good one. I give it a solid 90/100
Indeed, I guess it is just a hunt. Weebiest for me was Yuru Yuri. I got nightmares from that series. I felt I was part of some bomb diffusing unit and had to cut a wire while a bunch of young girls kept yelling at me that every wire I try to touch is the wrong one.
hmm! i'll give it a shot! i actually really dig monsters and spooky shit, it's really always the initial ice in my stomach sensation that gets me. the primal fear of "there's something wrong" and i can "see it" not two feet from myself.
which is why, OP, i get so inclined to flee. you're right, though. i should bear with it and tough it through. it scares other people, too, if i suddenly get über pale and ditch bc i saw/heard something
If you had to explain your illness to a stranger that had no idea what schizophrenia is, how would be the best way to explain it to him, but still so that in the end he wouldnt think that you`re a total nutcase?
How well informed about schizophrenia are most people that you meet? Do people still mix it up with multiple personality disorder?
Also: What is your favorite human organ?
>What type of games anon?
Recently I've been playing mostly LoL and Eve online.
I like dark RPGs the most, Fallout, Darksouls, STALKER, etc.
>how would be the best way to explain it to him
I'd keep it brief with something like "I have hallucinations, both auditory and visual, and suffer from panic and paranoia attacks" then elaborate on anything else if he had any further questions.
>but still so that in the end he wouldnt think that you`re a total nutcase?
Well, it's a given, being as I am a total nutcase. kek
>How well informed about schizophrenia are most people that you meet?
Not at all informed. Most people think that we're dangerous.
>Do people still mix it up with multiple personality disorder?
All. the. time.
>What is your favorite human organ?
>why did you drop out of middle school?
I hated the way things were taught. I hated the curriculum and I hated 90% of my teachers.
>whyd you drop out of college `?
I wanted to study Psych, but spend more than half the time studying non-psych related things. Waste of my time. The "higher education" schooling system is garbage, and is nothing more than a cashgrab.
>but spend more than half the time studying non-psych related things
in order to learn how the psychology works,
you need to learn how the brain works.
for that, you need to learn how the biology and neurons works
for that you need to know physiology and physics and biophysics and mathematics
I hardheartedly agree. You didn't really miss anything, high school is just a time when they involve the police and threaten you for being a free spirit. You cannot be permitted to have free will in high school.
>Has anyone sucked your schizophrenic dick?
Nope, I'm a virgin. (surprise)
>you need math to know how the brain works
I see you've been brainwashed by the schooling system, anon.
>biology and neurons works
Sure that's a given, but why do I need a foreign language, math, and art classes?
over half the shit you study in any schooling system is just garbage to get your money.
That's just another reason I left school. I had the police involved when I was in 6th grade.
>Do you live alone?
For the most part, yes. My brother lives with me but he doesn't pay any bills and isn't here half the time.
>How old are you? Early 20s I assume?
>college isnt high school
It's just a glorified high school that isn't mandatory.
It is if you do community college. Also known as high school, version 2.0.
Not too bad anon. Takes a while to find females. I am not even sure they leave their houses.
>you need math to know how the brain works
>I see you've been brainwashed by the schooling system, anon.
no, i was in a course (which wasnt neccesary) about neural simulations.
if you want to understand the time dependent potential of neurons in order to describe their spiking behavior you can simulate it on the PC with non linear dynamics and differential equations.
tbh its a thing i want to do for my bachelor thesis
>Why havent you paid a whore to pop your cherry?
sex isn't a physical thing for me, it's emotional. I'm not interested in losing my virginity just for the sake of losing it.
>I am not even sure they leave their houses.
Well, I never leave my house either.
Sure if you want to get into NeuroSci that shit is important. But outside of that? Not at all.
and yeah about the language stuff i generally agree, we dont have this stuff in natural sciences in the universitys where i live.
but again, i dont know what you need gor psych cause i never studied it.
Well, you need to leave your house for food, right? I mean that the females do not know how to scavenge for food and thus starve after high school. It is the only way we have such a shortage. Or there is an underground sex ring. Either way, all the females are gone.
>but again, i dont know what you need gor psych cause i never studied it.
A lot of pointless bullshit. I think it can be said about all degrees though.
>Well, you need to leave your house for food, right?
I leave the house for like 1-2 hours every two weeks to go shopping. Apart from that I basically never leave.
>all the females are gone.
They're out there somewhere.
>math is important in general
Yes, and all the math that you'll ever need (outside of some math intensive degree) you learn before the 5th grade.
>What do you eat?
Frozen pizzas, TV dinners, Hamburger helpers, etc. A lot of unhealthy shit
Do you regularly work out or do something to keep fit?
And yeah, I agree with you fully on the math point. Problem is, I want to do shit with computer that needs really high-level math
>Do you regularly work out or do something to keep fit?
Nah, I mostly just sit around on my ass
>Problem is, I want to do shit with computer that needs really high-level math
I originally wanted to get into compsci as well, 2math4me tho
>Would you say you're fat?
Not even close.
I'm 5'5" 115ish LB
You ever had an experience where you lived your life normally but then something happens and you snap out of it and realize that you hallucinated the past few hours/days/weeks? Like some sort of time travel
>Borderline underweight. huh.
Yea, I could do with putting on a bit of weight.
>How do you stay skinny?
I don't eat a lot, usually only two meals a day.
I can't say that I have. My hallucinations aren't that intense, thankfully.
How do you not eat? When you sit there, how do you not see a bag of chips and be like "I want to consume that, I want to feel it inside me." Don't you ever have a big of chips taunting you, being annoying with its presence, so you eat it simply so it isn't looking at you anymore?
I have a hotdog roll. I want to eat the hotdog roll. Explain how not to eat the hotdog roll. My stomach demands a sacrifice. Am I alone for having thoughts of them actually having thoughts and feelings? Am I alone in reveling the fact that I am ending many tiny lives every single day?
>Are you actually diagnosed OP?
>And taking a survey online doesn't count
Of course, it doesn't.
>Dude get ripped
Meh, don't really feel like it.
>How do you not eat?
By not putting food in my mouth, and eating it..?
>how do you not see a bag of chips and be like "I want to consume that, I want to feel it inside me."
I only buy chips and junkfood once in a blue moon.
>Don't you ever have a big of chips taunting you
Nope, a bag of lays will last me like a week.
>Explain how not to eat the hotdog roll.
Just don't. Only eat when you NEED to eat, not when you want to eat. Only consume enough calories so you don't die.
>Am I alone in reveling the fact that I am ending many tiny lives every single day?
>Does my anus hve hymen?
How can you buy chips so rarely? Do you actually put effort into making your food? How do you tolerate that much when you are hungry?
What if you feel pain? How do you get rid of the pain? What if you have gotten so used to eating that your stomach now feels pain when you don't eat constantly?
>How can you buy chips so rarely?
Because I spend my money on actual food.
>Do you actually put effort into making your food?
>How do you tolerate that much when you are hungry?
What do you mean?
>What if you have gotten so used to eating that your stomach now feels pain when you don't eat constantly?
Then you have an eating disorder and should probably see someone about it.
Spotted the britbong
The fuck is wrong with you, anon?
Nice attempt, newfag.
>The problem is that stuff is expensive.
Just buy NORMAL food and don't eat so much. It's literally that easy.
Unlucky dude, I live right next to a community greengrocers and Infinity Food.
I grew up on organic stuff so I actually like it, plus I like eating tasteless food in the way that I am eating purely for function, not for pleasure.
No? Lentils are the cheapest thing around and rice crackers/matzoh are pretty cheap too unless you buy stupid brands.
You caught me. Normally I get away with it.
>You caught me. Normally I get away with it.
You would have gotten away with too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids.
>any websites you haunt?
What am I a ghost now?
Btw tips for spotting my fellow Britbongs:
Spells color as colour
favorite as favourite
mentions "sixth form"
mentions ASDA, ALDI, LIDL, Tesco, Morrisons
Says Petrol station
Maths not math
Has basic geographical knowledge and talks proper English
Hates the fucking French
>No, not a ghost.
>and talks proper English
Uhm, I think you mean speaks proper English.
You confuse me. Chips are actual food, they are edible and serve as a good meal when you don't feel like going to Burger King. Plus some of us find that route expensive as well.
When I mean tolerating that much when you are hungry, I mean that it is quite hard to try to use a cutting board and then sizzle something over an open flame for a couple hours when you are absolutely desperate for food. It only makes sense if you are preparing it long in advance, but even then, how do you not get hungry from cooking?
I don't have an eating disorder. I just eat a lot. My family would be unhappy if I needed to see anyone about anything. I don't need doctors. I just need to somehow convince myself to eat less. I just don't see how that is possible when it makes you light-headed and desperate to eat. Right now I haven't eaten in about 2 hours. I have already imagined eating a human, the mouse, and other impossible objects in my desperation to get something inside of me. All I have on hand is a hotdog roll and it is taking everything in my power not to eat it.
I am trying to eat less. I am trying to have control. But it is hard and I have no understanding how one can make it through a whole day with this torture. I only torture myself a couple of hours a day. You know you have problems when your thumb looks delicious and is even more tempting because it rhymes with plumb.
That is what I am trying to figure out. So you don't have some subliminal sexual thoughts in the posts that you make? I don't get aroused by all the porn posts here, but a AMA does, and I don't even know what this fetish is.
>Chips are actual food
They aren't, anon. That's the root of your problem.
>they are edible
So is grass, that doesn't mean it's something you should be eating for a meal.
>sizzle something over an open flame for a couple hours
What the hell are you cooking that needs a couple of hours? Most meals can be prepared in like an hour or less.
>I don't have an eating disorder. I just eat a lot. My family would be unhappy if I needed to see anyone about anything.
Anon.. You're in denial, you should really see a psychologist. There are clearly some underlying mental problems to your eating. Either that, or you're baiting me really hard.
>So you don't have some subliminal sexual thoughts in the posts that you make?
It's interesting that you would spot that.
>Spotted the Britbong!
Nope, I'm 'Merican
This is my last post, I'm off for the day.
Goodbye to any anons still lurking, catch you guys around
This really confuses me. Can you not possibly go through a day not eating anything at all?
>I don't have an eating disorder
I think you might. Try not having food always at hand and do something intellectually stimulating enough to get you to forget about food.
I guess I don't understand what "actual food" entails. As I mentioned, Burger King isn't much healthier. So what defines one as being real food and the other not?
I don't know how long it takes to cook things, mainly because I don't have an oven and thus am entirely reliable on what I can scrounge up. Most days are sandwich days. To survive the rest of the day, I eat a bag of chips, some candy (salt water taffy right now), some bread, and some cake. Sadly I am not around the cake right now, so all I have is bread and chips. The chips are a flavor I absolutely hate, I figured it would help convince me to eat them only out of desperation and focus mainly on the healthier bread.
On 4chan, you never know if it is bait. But I stand by what I said. Doctors are expensive, I am not shelling out a lot of money and possibly getting into debt because something "might" be wrong with my head. I feel we are too quick to go to the psychologists with our problems, when they mostly don't even care and will just text their friends through your session and rush you out so someone cooler can show up. You are just a money sink to them, they don't care, and they won't help with your problems. I don't trust psychologists, I feel they will just give me pills and tell me I need them to see the world happy. It is like the Matrix where they are going to demand I take the blue pill. I rather eat food than that, psychologists are the worst human beings.
You don't eat healthy if you don't want to wait for long periods of time for food to cook. You also don't eat healthy if you want to not spend over $100 on food. As it is, I spend $70 a week at the grocery store on chips and sandwiches.
saging this is really my last post, now.
> I don't trust psychologists, I feel they will just give me pills
Psychologists can't prescribe pills. That's why I said Psychologist and not Psychiatrist.
>I eat a bag of chips, some candy (salt water taffy right now), some bread, and some cake.
This is why you are overweight. All these things are major contributors to weight gain.
I don't think I could handle a whole day. I could try, but I have horrible memories of trying to not eat before my annual checkup because the whole "can't eat 8 hours before" thing. I ended up breaking down and buying three bagels and a doughnut from the local coffee shop about 5 hours in.
I could potentially not eat, but the problem is that it causes so much pain and psychological distress. It is one of the hardest things for me to endure.
I try to do intellectually stimulating tasks, you are quite right that you will eat and eat if you don't have something to think about. The problem is that it affects those stimulating tasks to the point that I cannot do any, it is an overwhelming sense where you cannot think straight until you eat something.
I eat about 5000-6000 carbs a day. That is with me dieting and trying not to eat as much as I have been. I have no idea how you people eat so little.
In America it is expensive. I think it is a conspiracy, they want you to get fat so you are easier to control. But there is no escape unless you are rich and able to afford decent foods every single day. A clementine is nice, but is sadly a rare delicacy due to the fact that they are about $7 for five of them. Plus then they require running water to wash and a lot of effort to peal, which is not ideal when starving.
Have a good night anon. I know I don't eat healthy, but it is hard when your choice is between $3 for a whole bag of chips and $7 for five of those clementines. The fruit lasts about a day and you will still be hungry, so 4 days is probably the max you can get for 4 boxes at $28. I can last about a week on 4 bags of chips, which only costs $12.
Jesus. Are you sure you're not a space alien trying to deplete Earth of resources?
>Not sure what you mean about aliens.
Looking more and more like you're an alien.
Dude I don't know what to say, if you have as little self control as you claim I'm not sure you can help yourself.
I'd talk to a nutritionist if I were you.
That is bad? I thought 3 litres was still within a good margin.
How on earth does one get a nutritionist when they are poor? We can't throw our money on problems we may or may not need someone else to help us with.
