Same anon, I helped someone move houses today and it really wore my out. What got you?
Hey boys, glad I'm catching this at the start of the thread.
So /poss/, Coke or Pepsi?
Yeah I've got a friend up there who says the same thing, he was lucky and his parents did a last minute vacation to get outta there before the hurricane hit.
Have you attempted to not live in a swampy shithole? That might solve it.
I actually like the heat most of the time, but it sucks when you're trying to sleep. The biggest problem is that the wind is blowing the wrong direction so none of it is getting in the house.
I've been tentatively diagnosed as "somewhere in the autism spectrum" so I went ahead and made a Sonic OC.
> Coke or Pepsi?
I like both, though I grew up a Pepsi kid. I drink Coke sometimes for a change of pace, though. I don't really understand those people who say they can't taste the difference. It's like night and day.
Although, recently I've really started getting into RC Cola. It tastes like Pepsi and it's one dollar for a 2Liter bottle. Cheap AND delicious. Really helps destroy the soda cravings. Ha ha.
I'm always tired. Don't know how to fucking motivate.
Oh man, that sucks. I live in Louisiana and hot muggy weather is just fucking ass. I hope you get your power back, dude.

good morning possums. I am currently on the fifth day of starving myself to lose weight and doing alright. Does anybody have any good techniques for losing weight or any products that have helped you. Iam naturally built like a barrel. I am envious of skelly anons, how do you do it?
inb4 eat less and excersize, I've already done a lot of that but I always manage to bulk instead regardless. Started at fat whale 230 5'11 and shooting for 150-190. lowest I've ever gotten is 168 and the highest 300.
Uh... as someone who has experience I can tell you starving won't actually help. It'll make you a bit skinnier in all the wrong places and then when you stop starving yourself you'll just put on more weight then you lost.
Honestly I've heard not eating until dinner, then eating more then normal then is a good idea maybe? Something about giving your body time to burn energy during the day but not denying it the vital energy it needs.
coke is better if you like more zing and spice. Pepsi is better if you like cola more mild and sweet. I prefer coke but don't really drink soda at all anymore. Shit fucks your pancreas like crazy
run, run and never look back, stop starving yourself, instead eat as little processed sugar as possible
start every morning with a banan smoothie and run until your little possum legs give in
i dont care if your fat smacks you in the face while you do it RUN
cardio is best for losing weight, dont starve yourself, and if youre afraid of putting on bulk, running is good for that too
Lol what do you think I am doing. Also, depression can do the opposite and make you eat. Thats what it did to me. I yoyo wildly back in forth in my weight every month. I end up gaining an losing anywhere from 20-50 pounds every month. Binging and eating till I puke and then keep eating. Eating till you can't breath because you hate yourself then starving yourself for a week or two plus. I have never been able to eat a moderate amount. I don't fucking get it.I've had all the traits of dysmorphia and seeing my reflection or pics sends me into a panic attack. I don't think I have an eating disorder maybe but this is how its always been. What the fuck is wrong with me?
>What the fuck is wrong with me?
Maybe you're just plain dumb and can't figure out how to eat right?
Have you tried going on one of those eating things where they send you your weekly meals? Literally buy no food aside from what they send so you can't over or under eat.
I used to go to the gym for 2-3 hours every day or run 6-24 miles a day for my depression. It helped a bit but I never saw a change in my appearance. Hell, I can't even tell what I look like because my reflection scares me, It looks like it morphs and its like an inflated monster even though other people say I look fine I just don't see it
thats a regular eating schedule not a diet
that shit is crazy expensive and I don't have the money for that. Id rather do what I did before and live on rolled oats and coffee. My weight didn't change during that either
That might actually be an idea, another one would be to pre plan a weekly schedule of what you're going to eat when. So that you can try to stick to it even though it's boring.
Rolled oats and coffee is fine though, honestly you only need to lose a bit of weight to be in the okay range so I'd do that.
I have hormonal problems that makes losing weight pretty difficult, have you been to see a doctor to make sure that nothing like that is going on with you?
I lost a ton of weight by eating around 1200 calories a day but eventually hit a wall and had to change things up after I got to a certain weight but I'm pretty certain that was down to the hormonal problem I have more than anything else. On the plus side I haven't put any of pounds I lost back on so maybe you could give that a go and see if it works for you too? It'll be better than starving yourself I guess
>I can't even tell what I look like because my reflection scares me
are you me
Great, another picture for my "animals in bed looking depressed" folder
oh yeah saw this on a past thread.... it's actually looking good :) also, greetings my fellow autist.
AUTISTIC POSSUMS UNITE!
This thread is really comfy again :) Lets just enjoy the chill times and listen to some chill jams and be hip and chill.
oh speaking of that, i know some of you on here are suffering from the opposite problem, so I'm sorry in advance, but guess what I'm having for dinner today!?
Here's the dark cloud inside the silver lining though; I'm allergic to everything so I have to craft my own lactose free, gluten free pizza. I feel like a dirty hipster saying but I don't even care, pizza.
although tb.h I don't see how I'm supposed to enjoy homemade pizza. I sort of feel like it's the kind of food that is best served (and cooked) by someone else, delivered hot and fresh right at your doorstep.
are italians genuinely offended or just generally haughty when it comes to american-style pizza?
>want to be large and intimidating
>eat a lot everyday, throughout adolescence
>still looking brittle and skinny
>learn about body types and what it means to be an ectomorph
>all my dreams crushed
why god why
my face looks ok, decent but I'm quite ashamed of my body that I always wear jacket or sweater and pants everytime I go outside even on a 36C day
I know that feel, an inch taller but I weigh around 250-260 and I haven't been 230 or lower since I was in the early years of highschool.
Have you considered smoking and amphetamines?
You could do the Christian Bale thing and eat literally an apple or can of tuna a day until you're full machinist mode.
why do you think I'm here? :P
I'll still enjoy it though ;) okay pizza determination chart:
Have you eaten pizza in the last 4 days? ---if no---> Do you have enough money for pizza ---if yes---> Buy pizza.
>I'm quite ashamed of my body that I always wear jacket or sweater and pants everytime I go outside even on a 36C day
Yup I'm in the long sleeves club too.
Try working out and eating more, defo helped me put on a little muscle. count those calories.
I'm gonna be that guy who posts photos of his food, but only for this post. I feel dirty doing something so... Normal.
my camera made that look shit, someone do an edit for me and turn the colour up like 50% then it will be realistic.
oh fuck yeah! possums coming through for me, thanks guys :D that's what I'm eating!
what are your possum's opinions of jalapenos on pizza or in general?
smoking weed, snorting amphetamines, and drinking coffee used to be my daily menu every day years ago. God damn I love amphetamines. I had to stop because I was beginning to have constant heart palpitations and chest pains. Does anyone here know how to get amphetamines without skulking through a college campus like a creeper.
hail santa. May his kringles be with you
Are you sure? I hate trying to self diagnose and I hate labeling myself if I am not 110% certain. BTW I just broke my fast eating like 3 eggs and a cup of coffee. Feel extremely guilty right now. Does anyone else here feel like a piece of shit for eating anything period? or wanting to take a knife and gut their fat off?
I have risen
I put jalapenos on my pizzas occasionally, I just have to make sure I pat enough moisture out of them first.
yeah that sounds like some kind of disorder to me anon :/ would you... would you like a bro hug?
bye guys, remember not to fall for that sociopath's manipulation and attempts to get you to download his dodgy software.
You don't have to go, plus I doubt you actually left last time.
Sometimes I eat jalapenos just by themselves. It gives you a real kick to the brain pan, really perks you up.
One time I ate six in rapid succession and I was wired for three days. I think I slept eight hours total for those three. Way overstimulated. My body felt like someone turned the alertness dial up to 11 and left it there. Ha ha, never doing that again.
The problem with eating them whole like that, though, is that jalapenos come in different levels, and there's no way to tell what it's at until you bite into it. Sometimes you'll eat two or three that are pretty mild, and then that last one will be like Satan punched fire straight into your mouth. It's a total roulette wheel.
Anyway, jalapenos on pizza is really good, but I'm a boring traditionalist and prefer pepperoni with extra cheese more than anything.
Have you tried any other hot peppers, I ask because you seem to have a really weird reaction to them.
Yeah man that would be nice. I think I am going to go puke. I feel like shit and i can't take the guilt. fuck me.
I am back, much better. How often per week or month do you have to binge/purge in order to consider it an eating disorder? I don't like to classify my problems and I feel like I downplay a lot of my mental issues but I am unsure. It makes me feel like I am reaching for snowflake points which I know isn't true but it still makes me feel like i am. Also, I am kind of afraid to say anything to anyone because I am a male. I've mentioned the weird dysmorphic perception thing to people before because I thought it was common just like the binging/purging. I essentially got made fun of, not to mention I don't look anorexic so people dismiss it as me faking it. Still keeps me from saying anything to this day.
I got you, broski.
Fuck that looks pretty good thanks for reminding me I need food, preferably pizza.
AND I HAVE PIZZA I'M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW
I really need to take my car to the carwash.
>Does anyone else here feel like a piece of shit for eating anything period?
Yes. Then the anxiety hits and I end up eating a shit ton of food. I can't into anorexia like I used to.
Is there people that actually does that? Steal shitty OCs that anyone with two functioning braincells could come up with, and call them their own? Or is it dA tier stupidity?
What do you do during the weekend?
Doing that won't help for long. People get all REE when you use the word 'diet', but like what animals eat in naturally is called their diet so idk why people don't think they aren't animals when it comes to food
You need to count calories and change your diet/lifestyle. Download a calorie counting app like MyFitnessPal and fuckin use it dude. Don't listen to whatever bullshit it says for you daily calories and recommended intakes though.
Use that to find out your BMR, the calories you use to sustain your current weight, then eat 300-500 calories below that, a 500kcal deficit is losing 1lb a week.
Don't count your exercise against your calories, since the science is fuckk all in figuring it out, so just pretend it didn't happen if you're trying to lose weight.
Diet is a whole other boat so i'll just post this for now.
Have you ever had fresh mushrooms? I used to hate them too until I had them fresh in a stir fry. Mushrooms from a can, or any fast food place/restaurant, are almost always awful.
>How often per week or month do you have to binge/purge in order to consider it an eating disorder?
>The binge eating and inappropriate compensatory behaviours both occur, on average, at least once a week for three months.
I went to get an Autism diagnosis, and was told I was not in anyway autistic, but definitely depressed and avoidant. I have so much trouble feeling comfortable being friendly, or even remaining aware enough of other people that I was seriously wondering. Did they charge you a ton of money for the evaluation?
Evaluation is underways, but thanks to my country's health system I don't have to pay a dime. I just have to wait for months to get an appointment.
I was in college, and seeing a therapist at the university psychological counseling center. He recommended a specialist to me, and it took half a year from scheduling to finishing the process
What do you possums think of my purchasing choices tonight?
Glad you liked my choices, I needed validation.
i went skating at a pparking lot of a bank
took a flask o fwhiskey with me, fell a million times
heard rumors of a literal possum that got hit by a car or somethign, so tried to find it to save babbies. couldnt find it
got fucked up in a friends basement and played atari
sorry for the blog but today felt really /possum/ and even /comfy/ and wanted to share
glad you enjoyed yourself <3
What kind of work do you do?
real feeling like shit hours, who up?
Because it's the weekend but I'm actually going to go to bed soon.
Do you work second shift too or something?
Well I'm going to bed and I'm going to sleep with the snake so I hope it doesn't need to take a dump.
>Bun poster isn't content just to avatarfag, he also makes sure you can't go 4 posts without him there
I've said it before but this time I'm serious, see ya guys. I could've lived with the avatarfagging even as long as he didn't shove it constantly. I'd delete the thread but it's sadly too late.
No honestly I think at this point he's here to stay. Plus his groupies will no doubt defend him, though they do seem to stop when he goes to bed :thinking:
These threads have been going downhill forever, about a week ago there was a sudden increase in chillness and people getting along but honestly I'm done.
Might check back in a few weeks and consider coming back but I've been coming here everyday for 3 years and I think I at least need a break.
> I've been coming here everyday for 3 years and I think I at least need a break.
As someone who frequents a couple other threads on 4chan almost every day, I would not recommend anyone ever do that. Go outside, dude. Breath some fresh air. Maybe remind yourself why you subject yourself to this place.
Yeah, I know. That's why I think the break's a good thing and it means I don't have to deal with the faggot anyway.
Gonna spend this time studying, showering more and trying to be a better boyfriend. Good luck with the thread anon.
>about a week ago there was a sudden increase in chillness and people getting along but honestly I'm done.
That coincides with me discovering these threads (found you possums about 2 weeks ago and related instantly) I'm not saying I'm responsible for chillness, but I kinda am :)
You and me are in the same boat possum- it's not the bun thread, it's the possum thread. If I wanted to see that shit I'd go to /c/.
this is relatively-new-to-the-thread-but-not-new-to-possum-life anon again.
>I'll probably still stick around and try to keep things chill and give advice to people and stuff
please do, I've been doing that too, defo makes the place more chill.
me again again
don't worry about it i probably do too :P
I'm going now too, keep up the good work, but ... remember, bun is not your friend.
No, the grocery store stopped selling booze an hour ago too.
>Live in the fourth most atheistic country on the planet but I can't buy booze anytime I want because that wouldn't be very christian of me
I'm just sitting around listening to some music before I go take a shower then head off to do some shopping.
>hours on cooking
it doesn't take hours to cook unless your making something crazy complicated or a thanksgiving dinner. Most regular meals take anywhere from 10-30 mins if you know your shit
Yeah, especially near the ocean, which I guess means the whole state given it's size and nickname. New england in general isn't very cheap, I'm not entirely sure why, most of the region is surprisingly bumblefuckish.
I know that most stuff doesn't take that long, I just can't figure out why someone would want to spend more than 15 minutes actively preparing something. It just seems like more trouble than it's worth.
>be starving/binge/puke anon from up above
>finally worked up the courage to read the Eating Disorder article
>tfw builima nervosa description reads exactly like me
>Read article about Body Dysmorphic Disorder like I have been suggested by others
>tfw it also is me in a nutshell
Oppossums, I am about to fucking cry. I thought this was normal (sort of).I guess I've just been in denial for a long time. Please just tell me its just in my head. What the fuck do I do? Who do I go to? Why am I such shit......fuck
Don't get too down on yourself. People do weird things to cope with mental problems and bulimia is one of them. Try to find a doctor/therapist who specializes in eating disorders.
It may not seem like a positive thing, but it's good that you've recognized that you have a problem.
do therapists actually work? The last therapist I went to was complete shit and wasted my money. She pretty much said I was fucked up and needed meds ASAP. I got meds but that only makes things kinda tolerable
thanks for the kind words
I used to feel the same way about therapy, but you have to find a therapist that works for YOU. If you're getting the right treatment you'll leave a session feeling refreshed, the feeling won't be permanent but that's why you go back.
Not him, but I have an Italian cook-book with a great, simple recipe for smoked salmon & spaghetti. It's one of my favourites because it's delicious and only takes as long as the spaghetti takes to cook.
I used to have anxiety, like 'fuck what if someone sees me when I go outside'
Now it has turned into some kind of interal thing where I'm just a huge fuck up loser and everyone around is infinitely times superior to my pitiful existance and I'm counting every second of my interaction with people hoping they won't realise how fucked up I am and abandon me like everyone else I knew before them
If its any consolation just understand your not alone in those feelings. I might not have the exact same feelings as you but I definitely feeling crushing self consciousness. Its enough to drive you mad.
In all reality anon, if people abandon you over having flaws then they aren't the kind of people you need in your life to begin with.
I've just stopped caring. The way I see it, people are going to think what they're going to think, and there's nothing I can really do about it. Also the dissociation makes it a little easier.
Abandon is a strong word and it's not quite the right one.
I don't blame people, with real lives and futures for moving on. I just wish I could too.
But I am human garbage. If you zoomed in on my atoms they wouldn't look like those red, blue and white gumballs, they would be garbage bags, leaking liquids.
Hey man this thread has been pretty chill, we've all kinda accepted no one will download anything and one one's brought it up. No need for you to leave, ignoring the lagomorph will cause assimilation or abandonment.
Sorry that's the thing I'm no longer *that* anxious about people's attention, I'm anxious of my future (or lack thereof).
HAha am I becoming an adult? HELP ME SOMEONE
Okay. Well, I hope for your sake he gets there soon.
I think it's pretty normal to be concerned about your future. Are you taking any steps toward building a future, or just kind of lost and don't know where to start?
>Hopefully one day we'll get our shit together
It's long but around the 4:30 mark all worry left me and I just gave no fucks, like my soul opened its arms welcoming an uncertain future
I wish I could have it like that forever
I just got back from a week-long trip, I'm not used to consistently interacting with that many people that I haven't known for very long
How long will it take for my brain to clear up and go back to it's normal fantasy mode
somewhat of an internship, at a dairy farm
I was staying with the family that owns/runs it
there's a chance I'll get a job there
can't say a lot because I'm about 99% sure their son browses 4chan
my mind is still trying to process all of it but right now I just want to relax
How are the parties tonight possums?
also what are you possums opinions on platypossums?
Do you not have a family to fall back on?
Thought I'd give you guys an update. Party possum #1 vomited all over the floor, so I think we're retiring for the night. I hope you all have a good day tomorrow, b/c we'll probably be sleeping through most of it. Goodnight, all. Trash mammal out.
Lemme leave you guys with this.
YAY so here's where the party's at? did i arvie late?
I don't feel empathy. Earlier today I was approached by a woman at a hardware store who told me that her house had burned down. She was covered in soot, and was very clearly distraught and in shock. I didn't feel anything, not even the slightest tinge of guilt or pity. I didn't feel sorry for her at all, even though I knew I should.
Is this normal, possums?
What color is your skin and what color was her skin?
whoa wtf, who the fuck goes to a hardware store right after this house burns down? No, you're fine, you didn't know her or have any connection to her. Most of us are too busy being depressed to have the emotional capacity to feel something for anyone else. or it could be that you're a bit autistic like me.
As a possum, I can stomach anything, except a thread with bun in it. Bye.
Can I ask why? Most people have made it clear they don't like it, you have alternatives that would make everyone happy and most people ignore you.
Are you shitposting or is this a plea for attention or what?
You're being the dick by assuming what others think of me and implying a majority dislike me.
I am a very real person I'll have you know.
I know I'm a dick (also apparently autistic), I also actually went through to see how many unique IP's could've replied to you at minimum and maximum plus other replies people have left. The majority of the thread had either not responded to you or reacted negatively.
Gonna filter anyway, because simply I have no real reason not to.
Alright well I'll talk to you later then.
If you want to be sad possum without the comic then you came to the wrong thread. Part of me does wonder what would happen if the thread split into two, people venting about their life and the other people being cool and posting the comic.
Probably would be better then it currently is but eh.
I hope you'll reconsider though.
I think the main problem is that the thread is usually titled "haha I hate myself".
Hm, might give it a look latter on. Really these threads have been going downhill even as a hugbox for a long time, so maybe it'll help with that side of things.
Then I'll just need to find a way to fill the possum punk themed hole in my heart.
Why do you have to be so mean about it?
Well I'm going to bed see you possums later.
Try filter by image MD5 each time he posts one that slips through, it means the actual data of his images is hidden I believe. Worst case yeah just hide them manually.
It's also kinda sad he swapped to doing that just because people are filtering him, those who want to talk to him still can so why not just leave us happy. Honestly as far as I'm concerned that means he's either a shitposter or an attention whore so I have 0 care for him.
I don't get why you guys are so upset over someone new being here
Nope, you do realise I only have to click on thing on your post to hide that image? Honestly it seems like more effort for you to change filenames and use new images then me just clicking once.
At this point we're both shitting up the thread, I'm gonna go all moral highground and stop it though.
Same, the face he not only avatarfags, but acts like a child when confronted by it, tried to get us to download his crap and actually cares about getting filtered. Well some people are just plain unlikable to certain other people. A fair few people seem to not like him, some don't mind and hiding posts and ignoring seems like the best way to make everyone happy.
You're a true bro. By the way changing the filename is as easy as checking a box in the 4chanx settings.
Facts. I mean we all hate the fucking bun dude but just ignore and hide his shit rather then replying ffs.
Not great, got the flu. Also kinda been having sleeping troubles since I saw IT. Horror movies really aren't for me and all my friends said I was shaking during the movie.
Can't complain too much.
Haven't sleep, good day nonetheless
this is always true
possums a cute
doing well, ate leftover cold pizza for breakfast and am going to play some more xcom
didn't sleep much but I'm not tired so I'll probably be fine
sucks to hear that man, hope you get over the flu and your sleeping troubles soon
I hope you both enjoy the rest of your day/night and that tomorrow is just as good
>sucks to hear that man, hope you get over the flu and your sleeping troubles soon
Thank you, I hope I can get better right now because tomorrow I have to get up at 4am because of you dumb americans and your dumb timezones. Amazing D&D group for once but I have to be up at 4am to play.
Have fun on Xcom, I've heard good things about them but could never get past the tutorial without getting bored.
I will never understand why people like cold pizza. Not trying to start anything, I just never cared for it. After pizza gets cold, it's not the same.
Thanks. Same, dude. Trashcats are as cool as possums
>Facts. I mean we all hate the fucking bun dude but just ignore and hide his shit rather then replying ffs.
please keep reminding me to do that
