    Just another cosmic joke - the 80 percentile boy

    I grew up in a Christian home, which I took very seriously as a child till my late teens. To the point where all I wanted was to be a monk or a priest, and serve God. I was extremely dedicated, and was out to be the greatest Christian there was. I am now an atheist. My rationality and skepticism...

    Otto from The Simpsons

    In one episode, Otto gets a pill (or injection) which makes him more intelligent for a few minutes. He then freaks out and realises he has wasted his whole life. I saw this episode a few years ago, and I laughed. But as I have grown older and matured (too late 😢) I have realised that I wasted...

    No passion.

    I am really struggling to find any passion for anything. The frustration is in knowing exactly what I want to do. I know what I intellectually like and want to strive towards. But this malaise is entirely in the way. Just feels like more years pointlessly wasted wrestling with myself. My only...

    Why are people with bipolar treated like children?

    Because they accept thats the way it is. Everything is bipolar just as all roads leads to Rome, apart from the M25 that just goes round in circles. This is getting too deep Sorry to have wasted your valuable time.

    Comparing myself to others

    I know it's wrong to compare yourself to others but I just can't help it. My little sister is getting married next year, they've bought a house together and are already talking about kids... I've never even had a boyfriend. She went to University... I spent years being agoraphobic and alone...

    Do you think this is OCD?

    I have a habit of obsessively regretting past mistakes, and this is probably partially caused by OCD. Consider the following example. It happened to me several times, I said I would begin studying at, say, 7 pm. But I start studying at 7:10 pm. I start getting frustrated and regretting this...

    Why do I stay with him? How can I do this to myself? Last night I even had a dream that I was kicking him in the nuts! I can't stand him no more.

    When is it addiction?

    I don't think I am addicted to alcohol because I don't want it every day. I want it when I am alone. Is this addiction? I never EVER used to drink the night before work because I knew I might have a hangover but now it doesn't phase me. I am looking forward to tomorrow night, on my own, after a...

    What do you think about when you feel depressed?

    I seem to focus on me, I stand around in a trance like a zombie and tell myself over and over and over what an idiot I am, that I've wasted my life and how I have let people down. Is that typical of someone feeling depressed? or do think about other things too?
