  1. Today
  2. @geronimo even Selfridges has taken a hit, although still in business. I only know them from @Daveuk mentioning them. https://www.thegrocer.co.uk/property-and-planning/selfridges-to-close-all-stores-aside-from-oxford-street-food-hall/649943.article
  3. Impressed that you are volunteering KS, well done.
  4. Yeah, shops I like are probably going to disappear, even Debenhams as a side casualty - it is just not the same shopping online, you can't feel the fabric or spray the perfume, online is boring really.

  6. Yesterday
  7. It sounds like something I would do tbh. Many years ago I found this brightly colored dress with all kinds of weird designs on it at a thrift store which I bought and stuck near the back of my grandmother’s closet. I think it took over a month but she eventually saw it and the fallout was hilarious...she must’ve called the entire old women’s grapevine trying to figure out where it came from or who it belonged to because it wasn’t something she would wear, and I kept telling her I remembered seeing her in it at a reunion one time. Eventually I cracked up during one of these conversations and sh
  8. My husband pointed this out to me last week, but he told me tonight that it suddenly disappeared! 😳 The mystery deepens...

  10. https://www.sltrib.com/news/environment/2020/11/24/mysterious-shiny-monolith/ Update: Removed by unknown party late Friday night https://www.fox13now.com/news/local-news/monolith-removed-from-southern-utah-desert-by-unknown-party Two people who hiked to the location near midnight, Riccardo Marino and Sierra Van Meter, saw a pickup truck driving away from the site while they approached it: "We were driving in and we saw a truck with the tailgate folded back and a large object in the back." On arrival, they saw that the monolith was gone. Someone had scrawled "Bye Bitch!"
  11. Why more men on Twitter? Because women have better things to do. They have better options. They have children, families who care about them, they are welcome when they go places. Unlike people like me who score a zero in each of those categories.
  12. Mini, tiny, small, little, baby, micro...only real men sit at big desks and to be a real man you gotta have a REAL DICK...”eminently symbolic” as one Twitter sage put it. Twitter comments are something to behold. Why are so many of the twitterers male? Puzzles me. I thought only women and fags cared about such things. https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/27/mini-desk-trump-mocked-speech-little-table-diaperdon-twitter-president-furniture Author: Rory Carrol male as far as i can tell
  13. I used to think stories like this were made up until I left home and realized these people do exist and in droves. This is why I have absolutely no desire to live in a large metropolitan area. Retail and public transit act as accelerants for this type of behavior. I’ve worked in both. Stupidity and entitlement with a good dose of parvenu wealth thrown in is a vicious combination and it’s very hard to not want to simply shoot them. P.S. I am volunteering at a local church to cook food and work in a kitchen for the homeless. First time I’ve ever done this. Human interaction will be minimal
  14. Hello, Scruffycat. I'm sorry for the super delayed response. How are you feeling now? I have two daughters who are autistic (also diagnosed late) and who also both struggle with anxiety and OCD. What you have shared here does sound familiar. OCD can cause disturbing intrusive thoughts that, in turn, can cause extreme internal distress. I see this with them on a daily basis. I'm sorry you're going through this. 😞 As I tell my girls, it isn't always so much about what the specific thoughts are as it is a pattern of thought processes. I'm not certain if the inappropriate feelings you describ

  16. Hope you feel better soon Vic or that the doc can help with it all x
  17. @IrmaJean no I have not called the doctor . I am hoping, as you said, that my body adjusts. But with passing day that hope fades. The one thing that I thought to do was to take the pill at night instead of morning in hopes that the worst of the side effects are gone by say 9am and I won’t be troubled by them during the daytime at least. I’ll let you know how it works.
  18. Have you called your doctor? Your body might need time to adjust to the meds or possibly you need a different medication and/or dosage. I hope your doc has some thoughts about what to do. Sounds stressful. I hope you feel better soon.
  19. I was put on blood🩸 pressure medicine but am having awful side effects. Flu like symptoms, sinus pressure among others. Any thoughts?
  20. Oh I know I worked retail many many many years ago and one of the few things I’m truly grateful for in life is that I haven’t had to do that in so very long. It is the absolute worst. Being stuck between a horrible boss and an obnoxious public is completely miserable and hopeless. The only exception would be a young person doing it on summer break or for some other short term objective. At least they see a little reality up close!
  21. I post this for the plea in the end as well as an exemple of human incredible (?) stupidity which manifests itself even is such simple everyday things like preparing food and placing an order: https://www.vox.com/2020/11/21/21587723/coronavirus-covid-19-thanksgiving-holidays-canceled For instance: Besides the stupidity, the sense of 'entitlement' and the 'first-world' nature of these "problems" (of those customers) are so disgusting...
  22. Wow November 12 was the four year anniversary of this thread. I started it November 12, 2016. I am still not good at planning. Now just because I’m not good at it doesn’t mean I’m bad at it, sometimes I think we forget there are designations in between good and bad. Basically I can be OK at it if I’m motivated, feeling decent (emotionally & physically), and have a bit of luck/fate on my side. I would still like to hear anyone’s thoughts and/or tips regarding planning on this thread. It doesn’t have to be right now anytime is fine. Anyway I hope everyone is doing OK. Th
  23. My newest podcast discovery! For instance: Resilience: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csyv0l Why do we need to talk about men? https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csyv0j Why are we shy? https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csyv06 and many others: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00xtky9/episodes/downloads Enjoy!
  24. I Completely agree, they say women are attracted to confidence its hard to be confident when I don't have anything down there. I get Angry as well I Pretty much have given up on women at this point , like the rod stewart song some guys have all the luck. I was not blessed with great looks and great body or penis just feel like giving up.
  25. @scruffycat has the psychiatrist said why the medications are not helping with the intrusive thoughts?
  26. True, I'm not alone in having these thoughts. But I think mine aren't normal, or at least I think about them too much. I get a thought and ruminate and ruminate, trying to pick it apart for days. Some specific thoughts have been on my brain for years (not continuously, of course) and I'm getting very tired. I understand why you don't like diagnoses, but I think they can be helpful, so I can get the correct treatment and such. Also it makes it easier to explain to my friends why I'm behaving in a strange way. It feels good to be able to say, for example, ''Sorry I'm having such a hard time talk
  27. I think most people have inappropriate thoughts. As long as they just dance across the stage of your mind and then exit it’s not a problem. When they persist and upset you that it is a problem. I’ll speak for myself that during times when I’m under stress and I’m unhappy with myself it can be difficult for me to have normal relationships with people. Actually I’m not a big fan of the labels (they call the diagnoses which is a joke because there is no objective evidence anywhere for these ‘diagnoses’) BH doles out because they are not helpful. If I label you with borderlin
