Today’s been a shitty day
I’ve had a shitty day personally. Maybe it’s only the threads I’ve had a look at but it feels like today’s been a shitty day on the forum as well.
I’m currently torn between doing harm to others who I feel deserve it and doing harm to myself so, as has been my solution more and more recently, I’m getting drunk and watching music videos because that seems to be the only thing that works. Before anyone says anything, I’m getting help. The problem is that I’m very good of convincing psychologists of my nihilistic way of thinking which is obviously causing issues with long term treatment.
Anyway, at some point I always turn to this video which, for some reason, helps me greatly:
If anyone else is having a shitty day what is your go to music video, song, youtube clip, or whatever helps you get through the day?Posted 8 months ago

How about doing a good turn for someone who needs it?Posted 8 months ago
I know how your feeling Bruce but alcohol isn’t the answer . You’ll only get more depressed/angry.Still I suppose temporary relief is sometimes required.Posted 8 months ago

Doing good turns for others who need it (and even those who don’t) is what life is all about.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t always keep the demons (and the pricks) at bay.Posted 8 months ago

This week has been pretty crap, Tuesday was the day, seven months ago, that my girlfriend was rushed to hospital, and today, the 21, was the day they turned her life support machine off. My birthday which is on the 21, will now always be an unhappy day.Posted 8 months ago

So is there a youtube video you use to cheer yourself up or…
Anyway, this feels appropriate even if there is literally nothing that can make your situation any easier:Posted 8 months ago

Unless you want a 16 page debate about how it doesn’t really matter what we do because ultimately the Sun* is going to expand and all the engineering, art, philosophy, thoughts, and literally any trace we were even here will be erased as if we never even existed, can you not just post a youtube video and leave a grown man to his coping mechanisms?
*As in the star, the Sun, not the newspaper. Although the paper will probably achieve the same effect before the star does.Posted 8 months ago
This works for me.Posted 8 months ago

So sad to hear things are not good for you at the moment. I thought yesterday you had a brilliant day – your defence of me on “that” thread was amazing. You got it perfectly and continued to get it despite the idiots.
We need more people like you. Thank you. If I can help at all just shout.Posted 8 months ago
I read “that” thread last night – beyond any point (or possibility) in adding to it
Agree with boriselbrus: you did just fine in the face of some “remarkable” commentsPosted 8 months ago
Ah yes, Tues even was my beer and music videos evening. Doesn’t fix anything but a good place to be for a while and convinces you are there are some great things around. This one always makes me smile a lotPosted 8 months ago

I’m struggling today. Can get myself to do anything, anxiety ( which is not usually a thing for me) is sitting there just waiting to attack. I can feel it behind me

Nowt as bad as many but its really got to me today.
