  1. What can I say, but hey, you're welcome?

  2. If you're anxious or dissociating, try searching for physics toys on youtube. Your mileage may vary, but for me they get my brain proper focused on the confusion at hand and before long I'm giggling at how bloody clever they are

  3. Still waiting to run out of tears.

      It's cathartic, I'm just tired of it now. In the week I've been away I've become vegan and ... well let's just say the world's more full of injustice than from just abusers of people. Then there's Chester's suicide, ... basically nothing has changed except I can't keep a stiff upper lip anymore. #badatbeingBritish

      Dante, we all have limits and need a break now and again. Please be gentle with yourself and be sure to step up your self-care. safe huggs, if okay, :hug::bubble:

  5. In 1997, 39 people in the UK found themselves in hospital with tea-cosy-related injuries.

      I feel the vast majority of these people are more then likely related to me in someway. When I was 7 I did insist on wearing a tea cosy as a hat for an entire winter. However I did not injure myself whilst wearing said attire :roflmao:

      "Never trust anyone who, when left alone with a tea cosy, doesn't try it on." I forget who said it but it's up there with singing in the shower, I find it holds absolutely true xD

  6. When the instructions say to pour the oil in while the blender's going, don't listen, it's a heinous lie :P But yay, homemade vegan mayonnaise :)

      I used sunflower oil, soya milk, sprinkling of salt, and white wine vinegar. I threw in a spring onion for good measure :P

  7. I'm super depressed today so doing the only thing I can: picking fights with Donald Trump on Twitter ^_^

      sorry you are feeling depressed,  hope you are back to your amusing/ funny self soon.

       glad that you are having digs at Humpty Trumpty he cannot take any kind of criticism, hopefully he will block you :P freedom of speech I think he is under the impression it only applies  to himself and people that agree with him

      certainly not women , or any minority group, or the press.

      It'd be a shame in a way, the dude's comedy gold in tweet form. Still scary as hell as a president, but as a twitter numpty, he's right up there with James Blunt, if only for laughs but not wit :P The existential crisis, alas, continues with force. Back to ideation instead of counting sheep, but it's not intent, I'm still safe and stuff, worry not for old Dante :) I'm sure it'll pass, but will take one of me acute anxiety thingers in case it helps. Thanks for the well wishes, ocean and Star.

      It's got sorted now, mum phoned them, but there were a few minutes of "oh crap" that disrupted my flow of positive. Now yesterday two so called friends make bacon comments on a photo I posted on facebook of a piglet, because I want a pet micropig, which is just disrespectful, and I dreamt one of the dogs died. My winning streak is well and truly done :(

  9. Steampunk therapy should be prescribed on the NHS. Just got in from an annual festival and feeling pretty darn spiffy right now ^_^

      I assume you mean video games, I don't think they are in a hurry to pay for that. Lol maybe.

      @Free2Fly Nope not video games, I went out in the world yesterday, consorted with folks in person and such! Such fun though, steampunk people are awesome :) Dude introduced me to his boyfriend and nobody batted an eyelid, bunch of disabled people there, people were helpful if they dropped their sticks, took into account how being around people might be difficult, helped them find shade from the heat. Overweight people, skinny people, men, women, children... all equal in the eyes of steampunk. It's the only community I've ever known where the outside can be prettied up and stuff, but people only see your soul, it's such a great community to be part of, the best therapy I know.

      Give it another month or two, I don't think the Tories have ever had a lower opinion from the people, I can't go to the city anymore without seeing protests at the statue of Nye Bevan. If they don't leave gracefully there's gonna be a revolution a la the French one, I fear.

    4. oceonwaves

      oceonwaves

      Her days are numbered in no 10  for sure.   hopefully no revolution just a civilised change of leaders or another election that Jeremy can honestly win.

      @Bluesclues Wanted to self harm badly last night, I haven't cut in 11 years or so. Thanks for the hugs, could really use some

      @Free2Fly Better now, thanks Josh

      @LuthienTinuviel *cwtches* thanks hon, can always rely on you :)

  14. Hi. I'm some words on a screen. If you're seeing this you've just had some love and good vibes and happyness and hugs sent your way. I hope your day didn't suck, or if it's still early, I hope your day doesn't suck. Have yourself a cold drink and know you've got this ^_^

      Cheers everyone for the support. @fallenstar I smoked the last of the packet and decided I didn't wanna do it anymore, it just hit me how stupid and disgusting it is, how much money I must have pissed away by now having been a smoker for I think four years, and it hit me. I've not had any cravings until a couple of days back when suddenly my brain's freaking out coz I'm not smoking :/

      Funny thing is, my previous record is two months. Then I went to a convention thingy where eeeeeeeeeeeveryone was smoking and vaping and I couldn't take it. That convention happens to be coming up in another three weeks or so :P So to beat the previous record I'm really gonna have to get a grip :/

  16. For all my struggles, what takes me away from that is a fact I realised: I know more people who are suicidal than not. I understand completely. If any of you need to talk, need a hug, just need someone to listen while you offload, do feel free to PM me. It breaks my heart that so many people are struggling :(

      :hug: hope you are doing okay Dante :) .

      i would do the same for you , just remember to not take on too much , I think I have learned that the hard way.

      Safe hugs is always good. It's silly, mourning celebrities you don't know and never met, etc. But still. I love Batman, and it's because of adam West. I are le sad.

  18. I'm gonna take a break for a few days from After Silence, folks. I'm not sleeping too well and how much badness people have to go through is starting to get to me a bit, I wish I knew how to help but I can't think straight to form helpful responses. Doesn't normally bother me but lately I'm easily overwhelmed. *leaves a large pile of hugs and muffins to last you all in my absence* Take care everyone, love and light in the meantime. I think I'll aim for being back after the election when hopefully I'll be happy enough to share some positivity again.

      Ain't that the truth. You'd think having been playing this game for over 30 years I'd have learned the rules by now lol

      lol Dante the rules change everyday so it's hard to keep track.

  20. These sit ups seem to be working. My muscles are so big, I can't fasten my jeans. *eats crisps*

  21. Times like this I really miss chat. I don't wanna just sit on my own and stew over the world today. I'm not really up to saying too much either, but lurking among company would be nice right about now. Hugs to all, hope everyone's safe.

      Sitting with you if ok and hugs to you too if ok 

  22. There have been so many new members lately. Nice to meet you all. Really wish you didn't need to be here. I wonder what caused the influx?

  23. I'm so ill. Keeping anxiety in check but feeling like I'm dying. Fed up of being unwell. I don't foresee me being useful on the board for a while.

      Thanks fella, that's rather lovely of you ^_^ Feeling so fragile I can barely think straight so "hello" is likely all I can manage today.

      Dante I hope your feeling better I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup and some tea just for you sending it your way my friend ;)

    4. limbodante

      limbodante

      lol thanks. I'm afraid to eat anything :( Reminds me of when I became lactose intolerant after a massive dairy binge, I felt a lot like this, like I was gonna die, and I lost so much weight coz I was living on about two crackers a day coz I was scared to eat. I don't feel THAT bad, but the thought of eating anything makes me nervous. I only bought salad yesterday, I hope I'm better before it goes to waste. But thanks, chicken noodle soup sounds worth the gamble :)

  24. The John Oliver Effect is a thing. Stuff he talks about on Last Week Tonight has tangible effects on the real world. I doubt I'll get any result from it but I just tweeted him asking him to talk about abuse survivors and awareness because he could really help out. Expecting nothing, but who knows?

    1. CurlyQueen

      CurlyQueen

      Thanks so much for doing that. I think it would be a great topic for him to talk about. I love John Oliver, he does great work. 

  25. Super minor thing, but it really bothers me how mum keeps telling me to grow my hair back. I shave my head partly because of male pattern baldness, and being bald is far more comfortable than having a bald spot, but a big part of it is because of buddhism, shaving the head represents releasing the ego. I wish she understood that it means something beyond mere aesthetics and comfort. I feel my beliefs are undermined when she insists I grow it back ><

      Do you feel comfortable telling her? 

    2. limbodante

      I have done more than once but she does go on :P She said fair enough this time so maybe it's finally stuck. Though she and my brother still don't understand why I don't want to kill spiders.

      I let a spider go last night. Hope I can be redeemed soon
