Open Thread for Personal Stuff: November Rain Edition

Hugs for anyone who needs them.

I think we’re a bit overdue for another open thread for personal stuff. As per usual, no trolls, no flames, no being a butthead.

I’ll paste in some recent personal comments from other threads.

That and Two and a Half Men. I’m more inclined to give Two and a Half Men the title, but Big Bang Theory is up there.

Oh! They’re also created by the same guy! Who once said that there were too many women on TV! And who also apparently believes mocking autism is funny! Good job!

Hello chaps and chapesses and…chapinis? (chapini is neutral yo)

Well, its new years eve and my better half is asleep and I am whatsapping friends but it would be super cool to be amongst (if only online) others but obvs I can’t invade a thread to chat and I know this is only for ‘personal’ stuff, bloop.

It’s new year’s eve but nobody here feels like partying. The kid we were taking care of drowned in the pool and is now fighting for his life at the hospital. i’m still shaking.

Jesus fucking christ. I’m so sorry. I knew I shouldn’t have been light hearted. Manboobz is filled with misery and I offer all the hugs.

I have family members who get upset at me for not going outside often enough. Truth be told, I spend most of my time sitting on my bed because of my anxiety, but some people criticize me for being lazy and unhealthy because of that habit. I know that being inside all the time isn’t healthy for a lot of people (at least that’s what I’ve heard), but it’s not like I want to sit in my room all day and avoid almost all social interaction. It’s just that my room (or whatever room I’m staying in) is the only place I feel completely safe.

It hurts to be told that I’m lazy, selfish, etc. for wanting to stay in my room frequently, but maybe I really am just making excuses for myself as they say. Has anyone else here experienced something similar?

Also, Ally, yes, I know what you’re talking about. I was essentially living in my room with just my laptop and a few books in summer 2012. It’s not like I was lazy or anything, but I wanted the isolation away from everyone else. Also, crippling depression, but still. My parents hated that so much, but I couldn’t force myself out of my room for anything.

@vaiyt, So sorry, that must be so distressing for you. I hope he pulls through.

Some good news: My mom was able to move her right arm slightly for the first time since she had her stroke. She is also swallowing well enough that they’ve started her on a little bit of applesauce, though she still can’t take liquids or solids.

Woot for movement and solid food, cloudiah! Sorry I missed that your family has had such a rough patch; my best wishes for all better things in the new year!
