This is Troper Counseling Services and Support Group: round two because the old one broke.

In this thread, you can talk about any problems or stress you are experiencing without fear of judgement or condescension. No problem is too small for you to talk about. Do not worry that your problems are annoying or petty or what have you; we're here to help and we're here to listen.

Carry on.

Got into argument with mother. I was late getting home, because I was looking at a friend's father's literally professional quality (as in, he makes a living off of it) artwork. Somehow this is worth all my plans for this weekend getting cancelled in a fit, because she still thinks she has some sort of authority over me despite not having a source of income, ownership of anything in the house, or the presence of mind to give me anything resembling the respect she wants from me. ((Note: in the last two weeks, I have arrive home from school to find her gone without any indication of where she might be or any way to contact her no less than five days. Three of those, she didn't get home until after ten. All this left me with no way to get to the places I needed to get to, causing me to get zeros on two essays in a row- that is to say, 2/9ths of my entire grade in this class. And I didn't complain once.))

So a load of my insecurities just came to a head and because it happened off-site I can't talk about it.

Well, you can always tell people in P Ms. Or not name the external site.

I guess I'll just keep it in general terms then. I've basically just sat there and watched as a group of people I consider my friends effectively tore themselves apart, and as everything I said to try and help calm things down just made everything worse.

This is the first time I've posted here. Basically, I'm trying to get myself to ask a guy out, and the thought of going up to him makes my heart race. Advice?
If anyone in the thread wants to kidnap me, I don't mind. We'd just be in their van drinking Mountain Dew and watching MLP for days on end

Ask. Kick your shyness in the balls. You'll regret not asking him much more than any possible reaction he has.

Well, today I was going to write up my midterm paper so that I could focus on my other midterms papers, but then I read about climate change and water shortages and I got so nauseous that I almost threw up.

I just feel like everything's hopeless, even if I succeed in college and get a good job I will probably be starving and homeless by 2050, and then after that I'm going to go hell because I've lived in wealth while others starved. I wish I had never been born, nothing is worth this.
I detest marmalade.
[up] I've felt that way before. It's not fun, but the way to avoid it is to just appreciate what you do have and remind yourself that, while things look bleak, measures are being taken to help. That's what I do, anyway.

Just an update: I left work today and have half a mind to call in sick tomorrow, but I'm not quite in as bad a state as I was last night/this morning.
I have played Borderlands now, but my Undead Ned persona predates it!

I need help. I am one step away from just breaking down completely.

Please... Help me...

Jones, have you considered getting help?

We can try to help you, but sometimes, you may need some professional help...

We'll do everything we can to help you.

What have you eaten so far today and is that normal for you? 'Cause the simplest explanation would be something like that. If you're eating normally, though, then I'm not sure what to do.

You're not bothering us.
Momentum, a function of mass and velocity, is conserved between portals. In layman's terms: speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out.
No Jones, you're definitely not bothering. Go on, vent as much as you feel you need, we'll listen and try to help you if we can.

I'll happily listen too, but as has been demonstrated in the past I'm not so great on the "helping" part. I agree with both of the above.

Erm... I don't know what to say. That sounds really shitty.
Has anything happened today that's got you thinking this way?

I don't think it's pointless. Of course, I don't know much about your life, but I do think that life can be as meaningful as we want it to be. You're not in good mindset and I can see that, if you can't take it any more, please do consider looking for a professional help. Sometimes we might feel like reality is conspiring against us, but that's not the case. You have friends and loved ones that care about you and a whole life ahead. There is potential for things to get better, so do not loose hope.
