    Ranting on about women

    I think that people have different needs and wants and different feelings about relationships and attraction. I had a conversation with someone recently about how baffling it is to me that some people can find another person attractive at first glance. It doesn't work that way for me? I need to spend time with that person, get to know and recognize them and then they may, little by little, become more attractive to me. They were equally baffled by my experience as I was by theirs. I think we can learn from one another through open conversion and supportive listening.

    Thy Enemy.....Small Penis

    I'm trying to consider all members' feelings and responses. Different people may be offended by different things. From my personal perspective, there is a connection that I think may be better to not suggest or imply, even if society might. I feel uncomfortable with the suggestion of causation. I'm sorry that Small was upset by the post. It's good that members are being respectful with the discussion, though.

    I can understand how that comment would be offensive. I hope we can all be supportive of one another.

    Food sucks, what do I do

    Welcome to the community, Captnemo. Have you ever experienced food or other types of aversions before? I have a daughter who has had a lifelong struggle with eating, but her problems are mainly due to sensory sensitivities. Do food textures bother you? How are you feeling otherwise? I hope your doctor is supportive and helpful.

    β€œFinally, A New Emoji...”

    I have wondered about this as well. We can certainly do better.. I still have that hope anyway. Klingsor, wishing you and everyone here peace.

    Imaginary Friend or Psychosis?

    Hello MDeCa. I think I recall you sharing about Ben here in the past. Is it possible that your younger self needed some way to survive and cope with a traumatic experience and this then led to Ben? I think we all have different aspects or parts of ourselves and it can be challenging to accept and care for all parts. Sometimes the wounded and deeply hurt parts can be especially difficult to manage, especially if one part seems to hurt other parts.Therapy can be helpful and healing. Best wishes.

    No one cares about men

    I hear your anger. Bullying is a serious problem in our society, I feel, and there doesn't seem to be enough emphasis on it. I'm sorry no one stepped up for you, intervened or offered you support when you needed it most. 😟 I can't imagine what that must have been like for you.

    A poll or today

    I haven't seen any of those movies, but I know I would be skipping Halloween, lol. I saw the first Halloween many years ago- it was my first and last time watching a horror movie. Is Gotham a Batman movie? I prefer the movie theatre to watching films at home, but I rarely get out to see one. More often than not if I do, we go to see family films.

    Missing my therapist terribly

    Welcome to the community, curious. Some years ago, I also formed a strong attachment to my therapist. I struggled for some time when I left therapy. Looking back now, the experience was enlightening and ultimately healing. I learned a lot about myself and about my attachment style and how to cope through separation and loss. It sounds as though your therapist is keeping healthy professional boundaries within your relationship. That can be painful, especially if there is a desire to be closer to her, but it can be a learning experience as well, I think. You mentioned setting a goal regarding contact. I have done something similar over the years since I left therapy. My former therapist did not give me any limitations regarding contact, but I set them myself and have stuck to it for 10 years now. I understand your situation is different being that you are still in therapy. For me, I think it was good practice to set a boundary for myself. I would say you know best what is best for you with your therapy. During times of distress, does it help to carry something of your therapist that feels grounding? A business card or something similar? I hope you listen to your needs during and care for yourself. Take care, curious.

    My top 10 Christmas episodes and films

    Good list. I like some of the older classics, such as Going My Way and It's a Wonderful Life

    Not long now

    I enjoy the change of seasons. We have a fresh blanket of snow on the ground this morning. I also like the look of the land where there are cold winters. I prefer mountains and fields to a more tropical look. I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season, however they may celebrate it.πŸŽ„

    Theoretical suicide question

    I'm sorry that you're feeling so badly to consider this, if even theoretically.. It's okay to talk about feelings and it's okay to talk about potential suicidal feelings. However, it isn't appropriate to discuss specific plans or seek out information from other members to carry out such plans. I understand this may be a theoretical question, but I still have concerns. With that said, we are here to support you. Do you have any support at home, therebetruth? Would it help to express yourself more here?

    Planning. I'm not good at it.

    Ohh, that sounds very stressful. I always drive as slowly as I need to to make it safely home...5 hours, yikes. That's awful. :-( I have heard NY got 6 inches last night. This is somewhat early for this kind of snowfall.. I hope your day off is restful.
