You have 5 minutes to prepare before a guy breaks into your house with the intention to kill you. You can not exit your house. What is your strategy to survive?

I'm genuinely flabbergasted.

Thank you stranger. Shows the award.

When you come across a feel-good thing.

A glowing commendation for all to see

Boldly go where we haven't been in a long, long time.

  1. Dont let others decide your dreams for you. You dont have a problem if you follow your dreams and not what other people say. Who cares if it is dying? If you wanna do it, you can try to make it a hobby or youtube channel. The thing your feeling now is likely the "why are people not excited for me" when you should be thinking "what do I want to do".

  2. It’s not really a dream, but more like teaching philosophy is the only thing I could even see myself doing. But I appreciate your words!

  3. Some writers use philosophy in their works. Dont be disheartened, you just need to find the right tool to express yourself. Perhaps there is some kinda work that exhibit traits of philosophy your not aware of yet? If you dont see a path, you make your own roads. I believe in you

  4. My best advice would be doing some rather than everything at once. Like you see some trash, pick a bag and throw it in. Do whats on your mind. If your able to, ensure cleaning the bedroom and making the bed. As one who is depressed, cleaning the bed defently can have a say on your energy. Dont force yourself. Exept with dirty plates. What I tend to do is at least rinse of them if I let them wait for the cleaning.

  5. Yup, trying to pick up two more and know some spanish and finish as well.

  6. Nothing. If its about having to pay others or bills, I sometimes wonder why we do a charade on valueless things we decided to somehow have a value when it has none. It gives me anxiety that people consider such things more important than being alive. Live to live, dont live for greed.

  7. I think your lucky to have that relationship to your adulthood. Dont worry about what other thinks or say, I wish I had such a relationship to my family.

  8. I got antidepressives, and honestly, it helps. It didnt just counter my depression, but has managed to calm my anxiety quite a bit as well. I kinda wanna increase the dosage as I am still so tired, or maybe when I get a new shrink see if there is meds for schizotypical that might be helpfull. I was thinking of wanting to go the no meds route and balance my mind naturally, so it took a while before I actually tried meds. I consider it a bit like crutches that make it possible for me to get around better. It helps when I dont keep thinking everyone hates me all the time 😅

  9. If you are that tired I’d hold off on increasing the anti depressant dosage . If it’s an ssri raising the dosage generally just worsens the tiredness

  10. I used to be to tired to even get out of bed most days, so the tiredness I am talking about is more like, if I could increase it a bit more I might be able to do a little bit more every day. 😊

  11. Lets see... 500usd. Designed it myself and got it custom fit and sown in norway (I was going to the castle, so kinda had to make sure it was better than my lousy quality sewing, but then the queen asked if I had sewn it myself, and I was embaressed to say no since I had designed it myself). 🙊 I consider it my most valuable dress since the queen complimented it.

  12. Yeah, fixating on thoughts can happen. If its ideas like "die, your worthles, no one cares, die" i keep countering these thoughts with "live, I want to find my happiness, live". It depends on the thoughts how I combat them. Sometimes I ignore it, other times I counter them if they are overly negative to myself. If its weird things like "sebras are black with white stripes" I just let them be. Seriously, shaving sebras make them all black o_o

  13. I was more trying to say that I have trouble wording my thoughts but I also get the fixations. Random words or phrases sometimes repeat themselves over and over for no reason, sometimes things I just said or heard, I can't control it so it annoys me sometimes. Sometimes disturbing images do that, I hate it, but I never try to fight those anymore because I'm used to it.

  14. Yah... images I have found I can manage to get out of my head if I draw it. Can be... disturbing sometimes, so drawing them help me stop thinking of it if it is really disturbing.

  15. I think its what happens if you stare to intensly. People have told me I can get intense eyes as well, and its... "scary". Either you look to little, or you look to much. People cant decide. They tell you please look at me more when you talk, and then when you do, they get freaked out... i have found I prefer autistic people because they dont care if you stare at them to "much."

  16. I didnt know I liked jazz before I listen to it. It can help me feel better to listen to. I prefer the relaxing, chill coffe shop jazz on youtube. And yeah. Music can have me imagining the craziest things. Each song I have heard is like a coaster of images and motions I cant really explain.

  17. I have sometimes really wanted to call to be put in honestly. Not because I am a danger to others, but because I am scared I might end up hurting myself. It never happens, and I battle through those episodes, but I am not afraid to admitt I have wondered if it would be better getting proper help during those times. I am usually alone, so its hard to ask for help.

  18. I dont see what I said that go against magical thinking? Are you trying a spell on me? Its not working :p

  19. No. I like having the ability to see a little magic in the world.

  20. Maybe. Sometimes I use images to try to describe a thing, and I have only seen that as an option with others with schizotypical personality dissorder.

  21. There is no rules on this reddit about having opinions... also, I am not saying much about them beside the comparisons I make to my own sister and me. It is the reason for my paranoia and anxiety, and your like "remove it" and suddenly re-approve it? I wont change what I have writen, its how I experience it. Also, nice edit on your comment from when you took my piece down. :)

  22. This particular behaviour I am seeing, she keep doing, and its really triggering for me to see during this trial. The behaviour triggers me to want to violently throw up. My sister tends to get super violent when alone with me or her boyfriends after that particular behaviour is shown. I am scared of being alone with my sister. It might not even be safe with people if she gets particularly angry. Its disturb me in greath deepth to see this behaviour in another person, and I cant leave it out at all to mention that fact as its the reason for me to write of this paranoid feeling I get and anxiety from watching this trial.

  23. As a dragon I can tell you, you will never know :p

  24. Enig der. Hun er jo fullstendig psyko, så jeg fatter ikke åssen norsk media vrir det som de gjør. Norge er så bra på likestilling, helt til det kommer til at mannfolk kan bli mishandlet de og.

  25. Menn blir til og med sendt vek fra krisehjelp i norge. Og de stedene som er dedikert til menn som flykter fra konevold, blir fortalt at de skal bruke alle resurser på kvinner og slutte å hjelpe menn i sårbare situasjoner også. Det er mye bias mot menn og unge gutter. 😔

  26. Syns alt jeg ser på reddit får hun til å virke som skurken... unngår norske medier sin vinkling fordi fæen så interresant er det ikke

  27. Hun har problemer, og hun er vel teknisk sett en skurk når hun sender typen på sykehus med knuste bein og avkuttet finger... for ikke å nevne at hun faktisk svide ansikte hans med en røyk før legen fikk han på sykehus...

  28. Not exactly afraid, but it brings great discomfort if sounds are to loud sorta.

  29. I believe I am a dragon in spirit/soul so and there might be linked to a lot of signs I have though about since a child that made me think "this is me compared to others. This is why I think different.".

  30. Ah, yeah for me it's on and off as an angel. Then I found the kin community and it kind of made me really averse to it because of the toxicity in those spaces.

  31. Due to ptsd and fear for humans, its gotten super bad in my late years. Had a mental break down, and its been a toxic fume as I talk to people. You stop wanting to relate to people at all, as they dont act anything like you, and your like "these wrongs are me, or is it that I am just so different I cant be human?". Its particularly bad when you have dealt with narcisists, abuse and gaslighting too. Do humans only know hate? Thats what I started to wonder at times. I cant understand what hate really is. I want people to be happy. Many dreams and signs make me out to be someone willing to die for others, but I end up being hated despite only wanting others to be happy. You would think someone who is broken so much, would stop trying and give up other humans and connections, but... I still wanna find a place in this world. To feel like there is something I connect too, no matter how little. I'm tired of being alone. But it doesnt mean one stop trying to be there.

  32. Schizophrenia is in the family, and considering research link schizotypical personality dissorder and schizoid personality dissorder with schizophrenia, I suppose its a good thing it didnt go further than just being like this.

  33. Take down the sword from my wall, and take my hunting dagger and stay by the entrance to prepare to slize of his hands the moment he opens the door/window. :) i dont intend to kill, just "disarm" the guy.

  34. I know the feeling. I focus on my dreams. I worked really hard to get a cheap appartment recently so I could focus on therapy and self helping. I struggle really hard so I set one goal and try to focus on that for now. It doesnt have to be big things. I still struggle and try to find ways to cope. Making plans you can work toward is the only thing I currently know as a way to keep me going and not focus to much on my crazy mind. 😅
