Lets get some positive music in here.
If I lived on the same continent, I'd help you become a doctor if you truly feel like it is your calling.
I know it's an intangible concept and a poor argument that some people have it worse but working in the field of medicine, I've seen many people with debilitating conditions have different takes on life and none of them give up on it. I hope that you will truly come across a reason to truly cherish life, we all have our ups & downs but to put things in perspective...you have friends, a family, a shelter and food every day...that is a succes in itself. You have a whole life ahead of you to change everything for the better.
I woke up and had a really goofy drunken post all typed up in here. I contemplated posting it in its unedited form just because it was so dumb, but I decided not to. But I had typed up that I apologize, again, for causing trouble. I haven't been saying much recently, online or off, because I've been spending most of my time just going through all of the posts and private messages I got just feeling guilty that I got so many strangers involved in my own personal mess. But also feeling incredibly happy and satisfied with the end result because it makes me feel like I have the entirety of the internet at my back telling me to do my best, regardless of the circumstances that surround my every day life, or my far future. At least, the entirety of the internet that matters.
Now I just want to move past this and get back to our regularly scheduled programming.
@artemesia Never saw the original context of this, but I guess I can figure out the details. Good on you duder, it's a big ol world out there with lots of fun to be had, and not nearly enough time to see it all, keep on keeping on.
Real talk time though, This is actually what I do, if you ever feel the need to talk to somebody feel free to send a PM, If I can't help I can probably help you find people in your area that can.
hey man, I did the same thing. Lived on my own for a year and medicated myself on pot after coming home from work every single day.....and saw no one. My therapist said everything I was doing was ok and I had nothing to worry about. It wasnt until I moved back into my parents house and stepped away from pot for awhile to realize how fucked in the head I am....I go to talk group like once a month now and im staying active, but its still hard. I still have bouts of anti social behavior where I completely shut out the world, but I have a new therapist who recognizes this....There was even some points where I called trusted family members and felt suicidal. I think the key is realizing the world is bigger than your head, but its a hard thing to grasp.
But I have met some ppl in my talk group, and im meeting new people through them. trying to be a good, honest person every day. Ive realized that you have to ride life out and see where it takes you, but more than anything.....being open minded has helped me the most. Listening to people and not judging them can make a big difference. I learned that the hard way, but thats how Ive learned everything in my life...the hard way. So if I can keep going, so can you. Keep at it buddy. Keep it as real as you can. :)
Well, glad you're doing well... though I don't really know much about of what happened... as I didn't read the last post that you're talking about. I've too found that talking to some people here has helped a lot, but there are a few things that I have said and done that I very much regret. Learned a tough lesson though, and I don't intend to make another mistake again. May explain why I'm a bit of a recluse nowadays. Wish I didn't have to hold it all in, but it's for the best. Hate being alone again, but such as life.
Anyways, good luck to you.
