I can understand that sort of thing. Where I live, all the kids in Special Ed got free computers while I struggled really hard just to get my current machine built and running.
"Toughen up" is and will always be a careless response to anybody suffering from abuse and its aftermath.
I feel blessed to have online friends like you. I would have been nothing it it weren't for them from back in '07 to now.
I would rather die than spend one more year here. If people really cared hard enough, I would be in a much better place with an entry level job just right for me.
Yeah... If you speak logic to a fool, they will assume that you are the fool. A popular example is our ol' friend, Galileo.
My country club isn't for anybody who's financially rich; it's for those who are spiritually and logically rich.
(This reminds me of a scary saying. It goes, "These days, the cure for cancer can be found in someone who can't afford college." Did you know that Newton was lucky to go to a college all because his father saved a noble in trouble? If he didn't do that, how long would it take for us to discover gravity?)
It's never as bad as it seems as when you're going through it. I'd say it was a mild migraine now, but I wouldn't dare breathe a single word like it while I was having it, that's for sure. XD I feel better physically, but I still have a s**t manager thing to deal with. We'll see how that goes.
******** your posture-can't-be-fixed attitude, though, I call probable bullshit on that. I had bad posture for years, and I got better. I have every faith in you! But going to a physiotherapist might help with that. I go there for my shoulder. (It's the same, yeah, I just, spelled it the Dutch way, where we use the 'f' instead of the 'ph'. I forget, sometimes, but at least I've never phorgotten. cool ) I can totally understand not having the funds to go there, though.
Huh, sounds like your diet is so limited that any change will lead to discomfort because your stomach is going to go all "THE s**t IS THIS? WHERE DOES THIS, THIS IS NOT WHAT WE ASKED FOR. WHY IS THIS HERE? AND THIS?! THESE ARE DECORATIONS! WHERE ARE OUR MEATSTUFFS?" at even the slightest hint of something else. hehe. I totally get the getting bored of food thing, though. I suffer from that as well. It's really important that I switch up what I eat so that I'll continue to eat. I don't particularly care for cooking, but the stomach has certain demands, so..
But yeah, you don't want to overdose on anything except Vitamin C, since you just piss out any excess material for that one. Кек! Still, you might want to look into diversifying. Food is the best medicine a body can get. I do know that most foodstuff I had in America was superbland or supersweet and did not invite my tastebads to dinner, but maybe if you make small dishes yourself, it will actually be edible. I learned to cook by cooking for friends. I don't enjoy cooking for myself or all by myself, but having fun and goofing off in the kitchen with people while we prepare a meal together is totally chill and the food tastes better as well, I find.
You don't have to change everything about your diet, but you'll want to look into alternatives for meat, I'm thinking. Don't give up on meat, though, you need meat. Don't believe the vegetarians. They don't know what they're talking about. (Well, most of 'em don't. I'm sure one or two of 'em is bound to know something.. but yeah, meat! EAT IT.)
You need better forests! emotion_donotwant
I recognise the chlorine stuff. Used to hit me as well. Nowadays, I mostly avoid indoor pools. I'm told the chlorine levels have gone way down since from when I was a kid and got hit by weekly migraines as a result of mandatory swimming lessons (/Dutch). I'm glad I only ever so often had the 'don't talk or I will spew' migraines. Those are the best /sarcasm. I don't really need pools to enjoy life, though, so I'm cool.
But yeah, posture and diet! Look into them! They're great preventative measures for migraines! (I've had cause to test the cold floor thing some more, and so far, I have positive results, so I think I can recommend it.) It's hard to change habits that you've gotten used to, but you only have to update your firewall settings once, and then just stick to 'em!
My bosses were nice to me, but how the operation was ran did a number on my mental health. I told them multiple times that I may have ADHD/ADD and needed accommodations as required by the ADA, but no effort was made. I was also told to "toughen up" to get around my pain, which I found offensive. It is not a "No I don't want to" rebuttal: I went through a ton of garbage in my life that left me mentally crippled and toughening up does not make the pain magically disappear. There was also nothing on the lines of parties and even business meetings involving us coworkers; giving the Animal Farm impression on us. Lastly, I felt very unwelcome at work. Nobody wanted to talk to me, I was left out of most conversations, and then bullying almost happened; which put me in a suicidal state. It was so bad that I forgot about my OCs and felt lonely since they feel like friends to me. Maybe it isn't right to quit and never job hunt again, but it left an impression on me. Maybe it's the fact that I can't stand 8 hours, living my life around that, being stuck here, or it's the fact that this potential ADHD/ADD is really holding me back.
Right. Extremes on both sides are really bad... Being too dumb makes you a savage animal, but being too smart can sometimes put you on the lonely side. I feel like I'm too smart for people's liking, but I never make that an excuse to be dumber. My life is an exclusive country club; Only certain members rich in intelligence and understanding can enter.
Corporation jobs tend to be brutal and workers are seen as cattle more than anything else. Feelings? Mental health? Sleep? What are those? Different strokes for different folks is a saying that different people have different thoughts, tastes, and beliefs.
I am a dreamer as well who has implemented some logical thinking (Aquarius-Pisces cusper). Most of my good ideas do come from the dreamer half and I do assure you that many modern day inventions and such started as a dreamer's thought. Can you imagine how many logical people thought The Wright Brothers were crazy about their idea on how to fly?
Yesterday was s**t. I spent most of it being sick and headachey. Once I slip in the food and drink department, it's really easy for me to not bother with it, which doesn't really help me get over it in the first place, hehe. But yeah, in my case, eating regularly and drinking regularly have been majorly helpful in staving off migraine attacks. I also recently received a new tip/trick to try, which is when you feel one coming up, to go stand barefoot on a cold tile floor or to drink ice water. Both will cause your blood vessels to become thinner in response, and that might buy you enough time to go fix whatever is causing it in the first place. (I used that this morning, as long as I cover up the top of my feet and make sure the rest of me stays warm, it seems to not have hurt, at least, because the headache went away! It's still lurking, so I'm bunking up on food and drink now.)
In my case, I'd have extra time to get something in my stomach and to drink while hiding from the sun, heh.
I used to not be able to go outside at all without sunglasses, but since I've started paying better attention to this - as well as improved my posture - I've been doing better and better. I still have off days - like the entire last weekend *snort* - but I no longer get sick every couple of days or weeks. I've also gotten better at recognising what my body tells me, so that I'll know 'oh, this is because I'm hungry' or 'oh, this is because I haven't drank enough' or 'oh, ******** me, I'm doomed', hehe.
I can definitely recommend looking into improving your diet and possibly your posture. And it's okay if you don't eat fruit and vegetables, but you're going to have to get those vitamins and whatnot elsewhere, then. It's probably easiest to just start eating fruit and vegetables.. XD
Forests are best place, because the light is broken enough that it's not an issue. Forest is best best.
Oh, fragrances, man! Don't put me near those chemical stuff things. I don't enjoy being around hairspray and deodorant and there's a bunch of cleaning stuff that I avoid at all costs. I can generally deal with them, but if I'm already leaning towards a headache, they definitely do aggravate it into cropping up more immediately and fiercer. There was something that my mother used for a while that would instantly knock me into a headache as well, and I'm allergic/sensitive to chlorine. This was used a lot in swimming pools when I still went to school, so I'd always have one day of the week where I'd be utterly useless because I was having a headache. Teachers eventually went 'oh, okay, you can go sit up in the loft instead'. YOU KNOW WHAT CHLORINE DOES WHEN IT IS WARM? IT RISES. So there'd be this huge concentration of chlorine in the air where they would make me sit and watch everyone else swim. So then I'd be useless for two days. Eventually, they gave up and I didn't have to show up for swimming in the morning anymore, hehe.
Today's going to be a heavy day in terms of work related s**t as well, so I have to be careful, but I'll manage. I just have to hold out until fysiotherapy today. Which means I gotta wear these: cool
