    I'm in Illinois but can theoretically get anywhere (in the US) with little trouble as money isnt an issue. What is an issue is the area though, I cant do urban areas whatsoever. Gotta be rural/country. Or tropical island, that works too.

    Cool, nerdy youtube videos

    They're still pretty new to me. What I have for them is currently quite limited. This is everything related to them: So, just the two pens currently. Names/brands I've no idea, generally I'm not good at remembering names for pretty much anything. IRL I tend to fall into "Buffy speak" a...

    Cool, nerdy youtube videos

    As a huge fan of pinball, I found this one very interesting: Not that I ever get to use a REAL pinball machine myself... but I can appreciate the digital recreations that much more regardless. It's amazing what goes into these things. Also, this channel: Just the entire channel on that...

    Didnt they do that one Aspergers episode? I could have sworn there was something like that, like it was about those people that hear about the whole thing and then pretend to have it (or try to get it) for attention. There were burgers involved.

    Nightmares

    I dont have nightmares, per say, but I do have a trend in dreams that I find a bit disconcerting. It's not a matter of anything being scary or whatever, it's more along the lines of them sorta "evolving". Originally, I didnt dream all that often. That was the case through most of childhood...

    Seriously: you will be stuck on that bloody carousel until you make a change of that type. That's how this works. I've been there, experienced that. Only by doing this sort of thing did I finally break free. Wouldnt you like to have more positivity in your life?

    What I would absolutely love to see from you is that when you make a status post, you tell us something good from your day. Whether it's something good you experienced, something nice you saw, or whatever. Post THAT instead of THIS. And then keep doing that. If you only search for the bad...

    @Markness Also, something to keep in mind: Constantly making these posts about how sad everything is, is REALLY not helping. You are enforcing the loop. That's what that does. That's the ONLY thing that does.

    @Yeah, I do the safe word thing myself too. Though it's more of a phrase for me: "Get out of my head, dark thoughts, you are not welcome here".

    If the bad thoughts are loud, why not drown them out by being even louder with the good? Shout the bloody things down and tell them to go away!

    If someone is harassing you behind the scenes, you need to bring that up with the mods. If not... yeah, I've no idea what you're even talking about. There's only support here.

    Where in the world are you getting this? Good grief, everything I've seen from everyone here is JUST support. The only one who said anything negative like that about you, is in fact you yourself.

    Wasted my 30's.

    Aye, I agree with this. Heck, I've been stuck in my own messed up state (though it has nothing to do with relationships of any sort) for far too long... only recently did I really accept the problem for what it was, after some 20+ years of telling myself it was something else, and once I...

    Boxanne

    Ooh, this is neat. For whatever reason I find "tiny homes" fascinating. But particularly so if they are vehicles. I'm not quite sure why... I think I find the small enclosed area appealing. I've always lived in giant cavernous places, which often make me a bit uncomfortable... but put me...

    Wasted my 30's.

    See? I knew you could do it. And now you seem to have done it. But as far as you come, you cant let yourself drop back into despair. Age will only hinder you if you let it. I think you'll find there's plenty of people who will socialize and connect at any age, really. What will you do next?

    Dealing with overwhelming stress incidents

    As usual a big thanks to everyone here. I'm doing a bit better now, though still a bit wobbly. I'll respond to a few specific points here: It's not so much a big lead-up, it's more "sudden appearance of this triggering thing". The physical reaction is pretty much instant when some thing...

    Well I managed an hour long VR session today without feeling like I was gonna fall apart afterwards. A lot of my physical issues (chronic pain) has been way less lately and getting in the way of stuff less. More room to pursue my hobbies, finally. Still gotta be careful though, I should...

    Dealing with overwhelming stress incidents

    Okay, so, it's been a bad day here. Real nasty. My general stress level has been steadily rising, with the accursed gender dysphoria. I'm clearly nearing a breaking point, though on a positive it's almost time to fully come out about it (as things around here have mostly gotten back to...

    Subliminals?

    Okay, I walk in here, click on what seems like an innocent thread title, and... ...what even is this? What's happening here?

    Wait, why does the power being out prevent you from sleeping? Anyway it could be worse... where I'm at the power goes out if someone breathes on a pole too hard. I keep a lantern on my desk here at all times because of how frequent it is.
