>recently prescribed zoloft
Should I take it? I have terrible social anxiety, rarely leave my house, sabotage all my friendships, hate myself, 0 motivation and I cry when I'm alone a lot. But i can experience happiness, I just have mood swings, would zoloft take all my emotions away?
Anyone have experiences? Will it make me more social and normal?
So I was a liberal feminist in undergrad before I had a terrible existential crisis and became aware of the decline of Western civilization and the inherent moral degeneracy of liberal neo-Marxist culture. I look back at the people I (sometimes) got myself entangled with at the time and realized that there was a persisting emptiness and unhappiness about them. Many of them were swimming in this sea of alcohol, drugs, and sexual escapades. They bounced back and forth between complaining about being miserable OR having these arrogant mental-masturbation discussion circles about how everyone who isn't like them is mentally ill/stupid/evil. I'm lucky to have a boyfriend with a similar outlook. We're looking forward to marriage, kids, etc., which I think leads to a much more stable lifestyle.
I started medical school about a month ago in another state and I feel like I've entered the same pond yet again (albeit with people who are clearly far smarter and less self-destructive). Since day 1, I've been listening to people preach long and loud about the virtues of "bodily integrity" via abortion, small-group discussions about "inherent sexism in the medical system" (???) or calling for all and every "gender identity" to be accepted. I've usually stayed quiet during most of these discussions and I try to be respectful of everyone's point of view, but at times I feel like the only person who has common sense.
Is anyone else in the same position right now? How do you go about staying true to your principles while in the lion's den? I'm an Orthodox Christian by heritage (not currently practicing) but I found myself re-reading the Book of Daniel, which I thought was relevant to my situation. Thanks.
What would people think of a 21 year old guy and a 17 year old girl who started going out? I know a girl who is a high school senior, and she's a really wonderful person, and I really respect her, and I think she likes me too, and she might go out with me if I asked, but I don't know how it would look. What would her friends think? Her mom and siblings like me, but I don't know if they'd like me asking her out.
I really don't think I'm trying to take advantage of a naive girl, I really do think of her as an equal, and sex isn't on my mind at all. I just think she's amazing, and I think we could have something together.
How do I stop worshipping women?
I want to be treated like dirt and grovel at their feet and thank them for treating me like that.
I don't even deserve sex, the only thing I deserve is to have my male parts crushed and stomped on by her.
I'd buy her lots of nice heels to wear so that she can bully me dick with them.
>Nearly black out drunk at a party with people I know and thought I could trust >Talking to a guy, he pins my to the wall and starts making out with me (I'm male.) >I manage to pull away and stumble over to huddle around my friends >call for someone to pick me up, straight up ninja my way out
What the fuck. I don't even know what to think or call that. Was that sexual assault? I really fucking wish I'd punched him, I was so drunk that didn't even occur to me. I feel like shit. This is a weird feeling of powerlessness. I wasn't raped, I should be shrugging this off but I'm not.
New to cars here.
So I got a flat tire about a week ago.
Took me like an hour to get the spare tire on because I did not have proper equipment. My car jack thing was heavily rusted. Doesnt help that I was watching a youtube video on the side of the highway on how to change a tire.
Anyway when I bought a new wheel and paid for installation, they advised me a new tire to a second wheel that appears will go flat soon. I checked it out and it does look very worn, the threading is very thin.
Now I got paid this Friday and will look to buy 4 new tires. Thing is, should I pay for the installation, an extra $120, or install it myself. Like one wheel the spare, it might've hastily been put on but it was for less than 24 hours. I'm a little nervous about putting on 4 new tires, don't want to be on the parkway and have all the wheels fall off or something because I was too retarded. Or am I just overthinking how to change a tire?
I know these topics seem like spam/memes, but this week has been absolutely fucking brutal. I have a very ill family member that needs constant care, 5 technical university courses in my STEM degree, as well as showing up to work on time. I've already finished 3 midterms that I was capable of squeezing in studying for, but due to the chaos I could not prepare for tomorrow's midterm.
Have any of you had success contacting student services or visiting a doc and prolonging an exam? The outline for this course says that there is no makeup for midterms, And the grade gets weighted in on the final instead (My final would be worth 85%) , but only for "SERIOUS ILLNESS" or "MAJOR EMERGENCY". I feel like contacting the teacher with my situation wouldn't work, And make any med not I give him look fake (I guess it would be)
Please send /adv/ my way, so far I think I gotta bullshit seeing a doc for something
