    Venting Thread

    This is a place for people to vent, confess, etc and hopefully even receive some support or empathy

    Whatever issues you happen to be dealing with, or are trying to overcome be it childhood trauma, mental issues, addiction; nothing is off limits

    Sometimes acknowledgement or even just having someone to talk with can help when you feel like you're facing things that seem simply insurmountable

    This is a "Safe space" in so much as can be made on this site now I don't expect us to handle each other like we're holding a toddler but don't be a dick or I will report you, there's countless other threads to roast each other

    To make a long fucking story short, I shoved a whole bag of jelly bea-- oh wait, I mean, I'm a recovering alcoholic, clean for idk like three weeks

    I've been trying to cut back on smoking tobacco but I still haven't entirely kicked the habit

    I struggle with countless mental health issues almost certainly stemming from a lot of childhood trauma including anything ranging from living in poverty, sexual and physical abuse, witnessing domestic abuse between basically every relative that my family had anything to do with and a myriad of other boohoo-feel-sorry-for-me-shit. I've also ruined basically every romantic relationship I've had and am barely in contact with all the friends I once had and have felt terribly lonely for a long time

    However, I've been improving step-by-step. Aside from addressing my addictions I've managed to find a shitty part time job just up the road that isn't all that bad and I've dramatically improved my health and fitness in just under 3 months. I've also found more "reason" in my life now that I've been spending more time with my parents, they're more or less my reason to do better, they're both pretty old and my mother has had pretty bad health issues for more than a decade, thankfully she's been doing more or less okay recently but I want to be able to provide more for her before she's gone

    Despite just coming out of two of the hardest months of my life I feel more optimistic than I have in a while, which is to say at all

      I was just about to bitch about my ex still coming over to my house because I live with her siblings, but this is way more serious lol.

      I know you've had a rough go of it dude, but I'm really happy to hear things are looking up at least somewhat. Kicking drugs and alcohol is hard, getting back on your feet is hard, and I'm super happy for you

            Just keep in mind that you're doing a lot for yourself to make the next day better than the last. As you leave your substance abuse in the past, as you start to get some money in your pocket, as you give yourself some breathing room to think about your situation- you'll be able to help yourself get even further. As a kid, I genuinely expected to grow up and work a dead-end job until at some point I just found the time to drive off a cliff, but at this point I have an honest-to-god plan for myself, and it's fucking amazing dude.

                      Man, I'm a little bit upset. Snow wasn't able to get the plane ticket for December 20. The earliest she could get the ticket was January 25, which is another entire month to wait to meet in person. She did buy me a Rolex watch though.

                      I'm kinda pissed about this, but at least it gives me an extra month to prepare for her arrival.

                        Sometimes I just feel empty, like there should be some meaning to my life that just isn't there. Like, I was close to falling asleep at 5 pm today. And even when I didn't, for a while I had a bunch of things I could do but that just felt pointless. I'm over it now, though.
