I have real bad anxiety issues, has anyone here done any CBT like Mindfulness?
pic unrelated
User avatar #188522 to #188470 - jettom (06/17/2015) [-]
Other people's experiences with stuff like CBT and the like are relevant. They'll work out if you want it to. But if you doubt yourself and your own ability to overcome the anxiety and think the whole thing is a scam it wont help you much. Only try something like it if 80%-90% of your being truly believes you will get out of anxiety with it.
#188502 to #188470 - imnotbaisse (06/17/2015) [-]
Been dealing with anxiety issues for the past few years also.
never messed around with any CBT stuff but i find at least 30 minutes of cardio/weights a day and ignoring/dismissing stressful thoughts as "just me freaking out" helps a lot.

so my cat wont stop meowing at my door while im sleeping and i don't know how to stop her from doing that. is there any device , like a sound silencer or something to stop outside noise so i wouldn't be able to hear her meowing? im assuming that i cant stop her from meowing at my door because she is very VERY stubborn
User avatar #188461 to #188447 - karlKroenen (06/16/2015) [-]
sometimes they will meow just to do it seemingly to be annoying I can pet my cat, give her food, go to the bathroom and a second later she will be freaking out at the door simply because there is a door there and it pisses her off , or it has become a habit since they think they will get something, less likely that it's hungry or hurting
User avatar #188460 to #188447 - karlKroenen (06/16/2015) [-]
only positive reinforcement, negative doesn't work on cats well since they don't understand punihsment the way dogs or other smart animals do.

your cat want some compagny

i had to take care of a kitten one night, closed him in the bathroom with water, food and shitbox → meowing, let him go anywhere within my house except for my chamber (i wanted to sleep) → meowing
finally let him go anywhere, he didn't bothered me so much → no more meowing
User avatar #188480 to #188456 - vortix ONLINE (06/16/2015) [-]
i understand, but i cant let her in my room, i have many things that she could potentially ruin without me knowing. not to mention, even if i open my room for her when im sleeping, i don't think my room mate would want to do the same sense she does it at his room door as well.
User avatar #188448 to #188447 - thedirtybee (06/16/2015) [-]
Well you can lock her in the living room or something or just let her in if you don't mind cat fur
User avatar #188449 to #188448 - vortix ONLINE (06/16/2015) [-]
problem is, i live in a small apartment. its all in the small level and the living room doesn't have a door. you enter the apartment from the kitchen which leads to the living room and from the living room you can directly go to my room door. i cant let her in because i have my drawings in my room, and she often tries to claw them for some reason.

Should I add this guy I want to be friends with on facebook? (Im male)
This is our 2nd year in the uni and we only had 2 conversation so far (Small talk, exams) which he initiated. I havent had luck in getting any male friends (due to the fact that there are 10 of us and 90 girls) and I only hang out with my girlfriend and her friends and I think he would make a good friend. Should I do it and if yes what are some good ice breakers? Also Im not sure if Im overanalyzing it or not.

It seems your overcomplicating it really it's just adding someone on Facebook and to break the ice with a guy just chat about shit your interested in and ask his opinions. Good thing to do is would you rather stuff like Mila cunis or Megan Fox. That sort of stuff. Or who would win in a fight

how much should text chats involve just discussing your history compared to future compared to nonsense

been talking to a girl almost nonstop for 4 or 5 days first time. im running out of things to talk about cause im a boring shit with no life experience. i keep trying to end convos by saying i gotta do something but really im just trying to end it when i dont know what to talk about or i think im gonna talk about somethivg terrible


honestly i dont know how to be funny so any advice about how chat flow or how to keep it interesting. That would help more than just random topics to talk about, i never had a gf and never had a online convo last more than 2 days
User avatar #188427 to #188419 - ieatbengay (06/16/2015) [-]

#188425 to #188422 - anon (06/16/2015) [-]
like are there any chat games or anything we played 2 truths and a lie. i made up a game where we try to guess each others favorite things. but we dont really have an inside jokes or anything. it's just more asking whats your favorite this or how's your family doing. i can't tell if im building actual chemistry with her or im just running through subjects til im dead

Like im sure there's tricks people use in their chats. like a repeat joke or inside joke to say when things are awkward or something. idk

my only real experience with relationships is my parents marriage. and they slept in seperate rooms for as long as i can remember and pretty much only stayed together for the kids.

I'm scared i'll never build any intimacy, or if i have im afraid i have no idea what it looks like. I'm trying my best not to be boring with her. i wanna be the kind of guy she looks forward to talking to.

User avatar #188421 to #188419 - dudeheit (06/16/2015) [-]
Well sometimes you just can say it "I honestly don't know what to say". Just ask how her day was or that she/he should tell you something about her day. Listening is sometimes more important than speaking. Just casual questions in between. If you feel relaxed it will go with the flow.
Casual advicem, I know, but it is like it is. Don't be to harsh on yourself.
#188426 to #188421 - anon (06/16/2015) [-]
yeah the casual question thing is what ive been trying but i want to make her crazy about me. like a formula for witty comments or something. Something memorable.

i never once in my life made a girl laugh so hard she snorted. i maybe got some giggles at most
User avatar #188541 to #188426 - dudeheit (06/17/2015) [-]
There is no formula or something like that.
Don't try to force things. Be as natural as you are and if the two of you are on the same wavelength, things will come naturally. You don't have to talk to her everyday to achieve that, but try to have more contact with her in real life, from my experience, there is a difference between how people act on the phone/chat and in real life

never really considered myself to be a nerd, but when i think about it, i've got some similarities to your stereotypical nerd: likes to stay home, interests related to at home activities (t.v., vidya, etc.), not very outgoing.

i guess what i'm asking is, how do you meet people. i wouldn't mind making some new friends or start dating people, but i have no clue where i would go to meet people with similar interests

straight, male, 19
User avatar #188513 to #188397 - fukkentyranitar (06/17/2015) [-]
I'm in the exact same position as you. Just ask you friends if they have any friends that have similar interests as you. Go to a gaming event of something. I just text my childhood friends and occasionally go to the mall. Otherwise I'm chilling out with my cousins. I have a big ass family so I never really needed to go out of my way to socialize.

anyone else hate the word 'just' when it comes to giving advice?
it's always followed by some vague comment that is supposedly easy even though it usually isn't

just be positive
just be confident
just talk to her

I use that word a lot, never thought about it.
But as mentioned, I think that starting is most time the hardest part, for real. 3 or 4 years ago I was on holidays with my friends. Two of them "just" started talking to every girl when we went out. Today they are far more outgoing than I am in reference in to strangers.

Advice board, or whatever the fuck you want to be called.
Air duct cleaning won't stop calling. Day after day. Week after week. And i'm losing it.
What's a good way to scare them into not calling? Threaten them with brutal means?
Get them to send a guy/girl to come to my door and murder them,then denying their showing when they call again?
I want to disturb them into either never calling again or quitting. Both are preferable.
How do i go about freaking the fuck out of them?

What they're doing is far from legal. But they don't care.
They will just keep calling and when they think they've had enough, they hang up.

Let them call, then say you will be right back and leave them on the phone for an hour
User avatar #188352 to #188351 - roflstorm ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
I did that, they hung up after almost 25 minutes
User avatar #188354 to #188352 - thedirtybee (06/15/2015) [-]
Well If it's at work you could block them, if at home just keep doing that until they piss off
User avatar #188357 to #188354 - roflstorm ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
It's not enough to piss them off, they'll just call even more often.
I want to scare the shit out of them
User avatar #188359 to #188357 - thedirtybee (06/15/2015) [-]
Dunno then man
User avatar #188360 to #188359 - roflstorm ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]

Ever take so much time typing something out, you calm down?

I still want them to stop calling, but i don't want to have to kill anyone

I'm looking for an AFFORDABLE (below $25,000 a semester) university/college in the New England area. I would be an international student, so my fees would be more expensive than those of in state and out of state students. I am not having a lot of luck with my own searches, so I decided to try a few boards. Please offer any useful advice you can!
#188386 to #188308 - anon (06/15/2015) [-]
Doubt you'll get it on the east coast and west coast. Cost of living is through the roof, and those preppy as fuck schools cost an arm and a leg to attend to. You might be better off with a foreign exchange program. Those pretty much make the student not pay anything. It's pretty tight, most schools have them.

I'm looking for a university £30,000 and under, sorry I didn't read what I had written here

You can attend any community college there and transfer to your grad school within the state. Also, you can apply for grants and financial aid. Keep your grades up and you won't have to pay for shit.

why do you think
User avatar #188317 to #188316 - ieatbengay (06/15/2015) [-]
why do you wanna go to new england though
User avatar #188319 to #188317 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
I live in the UK, the farther I have to travel, the more expensive and I want to be as close to home as possible in the US.
New England is also known for its good schools.
User avatar #188320 to #188319 - ieatbengay (06/15/2015) [-]
i know but why do you live in the UK and want to go to the US?
User avatar #188322 to #188320 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
Because I want to do a masters in Oriental history, and the US has better facilities for that. I want to do a bachelors in the US, with electives that involve Asian studies, so that I can approach a future university with those classes to fall back on.
I also prefer the variety of subjects that US degrees offer as opposed to English ones where you focus on ONE course.
User avatar #188324 to #188322 - ieatbengay (06/15/2015) [-]
oriental history why
User avatar #188328 to #188324 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
So many questions, why would someone who loves maths study maths at Uni? It's because it's where their interests lie. My interests lie with history, and I have an acute interest primarily in Japanese history.
I'm doing everything I can so I can go to a Japanese university in the distant future to do an MA if possible, for instance at school we currently have a year long project we can do on any country's history. I'm probably going to be looking at the 1635-1854 (sorry for any date discrepancies my memory is poor) of Sakoku.

kek
what a weeaboo
User avatar #188353 to #188345 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
Yes, because not talking about anime whatsoever and purely taking an interest in Japanese history and culture after having been there twice is totally weeaboo behaviour, I don't even have any anime merch in my room, so yep you're really on point there .
User avatar #188364 to #188353 - youngneil (06/15/2015) [-]
Being a weeb doesn't mean you like anime, it just means that you wish you were Japanese and you shit all over the Japanese culture in the process of pretending that you're Japanese.
User avatar #188365 to #188364 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
I don't think I'm Japanese? I'm from England? I don't see how having an interest in a culture means I want to shit on their culture or pretend I'm one of them? I'm not some tumblrtwat pretending to be transasian or some shit.
This comment is devoid of logic and just plain silly.
You wouldn't say the same if I said I loved German history (which I also do by the way).
I just love History, it just so happens that I think that Japanese and Chinese history (though I know little Chinese history) is very interesting.
User avatar #188367 to #188365 - youngneil (06/15/2015) [-]
I didn't call you a weeb, I was just explaining.
I did think the anon comment was funny though.
User avatar #188368 to #188367 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
I know you did
I didn't say you were, I was merely posting my retaliation. I feel like this comment is thought or said a lot to people like me who take an interest in this field, and I think it's really unfair. I'm no weeb and I'm not a animu otaku dipshit.
#188376 to #188368 - anon (06/15/2015) [-]
Shhhhhh
yes you are
User avatar #188381 to #188376 - womanexplain ONLINE (06/15/2015) [-]
I'm not retaliating any further

Alright, guys, i need some advice. So, today, after taking one of my finals, i was with people in my class, talking about what they were gonna do. I mentioned that i'd catch up on game of thrones, and this girl who i don't know very well says she watches it too. I didn't think too much of it at the time, but later today, she started texting me about the season finale she got my phone number because we have a group chat of the class . So, i started talking to her about game of thrones related stuff, and we got into a lengthy discussion about some of the characters. Here's my question: is there anything going on besides the game of thrones chat? And if so, how do i stop it before its too late I'm not interested in her in the slightest ? Am i just overdoing it? In which case, should i just keep chatting?
User avatar #188358 to #188307 - ieatbengay (06/15/2015) [-]
i think she does like you, you should be friendly until she does do something that is clearly heading in that direction, then let her down easy

if you don't even like talking to her you can be a bit more drastic but there might be problems if you're gonna see her again
User avatar #188348 to #188307 - thedirtybee (06/15/2015) [-]
Yeah like he said if your comfortable just keep chatting to her it doesn't matter if your not attracted to her because you could have found a good friend
User avatar #188309 to #188307 - karlKroenen (06/15/2015) [-]
If you are comfortable, and she is comfortable when you talk about game of thrones, keep it going. You'll find other things to talk about if you just let it flow.
