Clearly I'm a touch useless, and need some help to make myself a better person, someone whose more well rounded. Someone who can change /777/ more than twice a year, essentially.

Regardless, go nuts and do what you normally do! To suggest future /777/s use this thread: https://7chan.org/7ch/res/4700.html

Hey there self help. This one my be out of your depth, but here goes.

I have a tumor in my right leg that is fused with the sciatic nerve. My mobility is lessened, but most of all I'm always in 24/7 pain.

The doctor cycles me through dilaudid, fentyal, and sufentynal every 3 months so that I get pain relief and so that they can stave off addiction and tolerance.

I'm 27 now, and I've had this tumor my whole life, but the pain has only reached opiate -levels until 9 years ago.

Honestly if they would have taken it out when I was born, I think I would have been fine. They were worried that I had NF1, aka the Elephant Man disease, which in that case it would have "grown back, and become cancerous ". Now they suspect the tumor is a plexiform neurofibroma.

Now then: I've been in constant pain for 9 years, and kinda getting tired of this shit. So this is where you help me help me.

-they can't take it out without taking the sciatic nerve out as well
-radiation has never been on the table for some reason, I think due to the misdiagnosis
-it seems the tumor is rare, as I can't find much research on the subject nor doctors to help.

So this is completely anecdotal, I'm not an expert at all and based on what I've heard it is still extremely experimental at this point, but heat treatment has been used successfully to reduce cancer size before. I think I may have a distant relative who went to germany to have it done to his prostate.

A quick google search yielded this result from the american cancer society. I haven't actually read it so I have no idea if it is helpful or not.

They can do amazing things with nerves these days. Naturally operated prosthetics, etc.

I don't think the technology to remove and rewire a section of the nerve is necessarily beyond reach even now.

I concur with trying some inexpensive non-invasive therapy. Certainly can't hurt to try some out. I'd suggest:
IR (Infrared) heat lamp treatment - They sell these units alongside stuff such as back massagers.
Magnet therapy - Nikken makes such products if you need reference source, but your better off just buying inexpensive magnets and configuring them yourself, North Pole faces the area to be treated always!
Essential Oils and or Herbal Saves - Consult the internet for recommendations, I'm not an expert on these.

Realize now from reading others posts here that my problems are really petty and trivial in comparrison.

I'm in my early thirties. I've been very unsuccessful thus far in life. At present, I have no friends outside of the internet. Lost my job two weeks ago. Car is acting up. Still living with my parents. Never have had a girl friend. Feel like my life is just one big rut. Went to college years ago and fully paid for two semesters entirely with money i earned from my first job believing fully I could get some sort of grant to take care of the rest of the semesters, but for whatever reason I did not qualify for any, so two semesters of college and an emptied savings account later and the next nine years I worked full time in retail.

Education won't solve your problem on it's own, but have you considered applying for school again? I'd be surprised if you didn't qualify for something through FAFSA: https://fafsa.ed.gov/

Also, introductory courses, work study, and university career centers are a great way to find out what you're interested in.

So, fifteen weeks unemployed as of today. I interviewed for a job tuesday, that went well. went back for a second round interview Wednesday, also went well. Accepted a job offer on the spot. Went in to the contracted place for drug testing yesterday. No reason for concern at all on the drug test. What has me concerned is that the hiring manager had told me that the drug test and background check results are usually to him in under four hours, and that he would try to have me in the same day for orientation. Day passed by without a phone call or an e-mail. Hopefully I'll hear back something this morning.

when i was a kid around 10 or 11 i learned the word 'transsexual' and i thought that might apply to me, but i was in a rural environment with no-one i could talk to about it so i thought it was twisted and deviant and fucked up. then my older brother got addicted to heroin and almost tore my family apart and i swore to myself that i was never going to make trouble like that for the family, never going to bring shame to them like he did. fortunately i didn't have a heroin addiction to be ashamed of unfortunately i substituted that for being a trap because i was dumb when i was younger. so i told myself that being transgender was the worst thing i could ever possibly do to myself or to others. then my parents sent me off to a all-male school which i hated but i didnt want to let them down like my brother had so i just tried to kill the tranny in me and keep my head down. then when i was about 16 i started geting really depressed, drinking, smoking pot, oxycontin (ironic, no?), the whole 9 yards, to escape how fucked up i felt.
when i was 18 i went to university in a different city away from my family, thinking i could be free to do the whole trans thing away from them, but i didn't. i made friends and then i told myself that by being a tranny it would be letting them down or betraying them and they would all hate me. i was too scared to do anything more than occassionally crossdress in my dormroom and then i'd feel ashamed for weeks afterwards. i spent the next 2 years drinking myself into oblivion, suicide attempts etc etc.
but then i flunked out, moved back home and stopped drinking, got a job and just worked and saved money. still living and acting s a guy, but not at all feeling comfortable as a guy and hating that the world saw and treated me as male.
recently i moved country and am now living alone and working. i have enough space and money that i could try be the trap i think i was supposed to be. but i think i succeeded in killing the transgender inside me. like, it used to be i'd crossdress and feel some kind of authenticity but now i barely feel anything. but i still hate the fact that i am a male and when other men treat me like i'm one of the boys i want to scream. i hate my body, body hair, flat chest, dick, height, shape. but i used to feel like if i looked more feminine, that that would be ok. i used to be able to imagine what i'd like to look like or pick out features in y appearance that i like. now my body is completely alien to me. i don't recognise my face in the mirror at all. i function socially by just trying to be inoffensive and agreeable and not causing too much trouble for anyone, and the rest of the time i just get stoned.
i don't feel like i have a personality at all.
i've got heaps of student debt and i work in a dead-end job. i have no idea what i want to do long-term. i could go back to university but with no idea what i'd study Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

In dire need of help. Tried asking /r/, but phone was being too slow.
Using manjaro Linux. Last night I did a long wipe of a flash drive. Later in the night, after that had been closed out, I tried to switch to lxdm. After running a command I do not recall, I rebooted to see it boot into lxdm so I could start using a wider variety of window managers, but alas, I got this. After as much fiddling as I could muster, I was left helpless. Stuck With 3g data, no live USB, a broken disk drive, no extra computer, and no wired internet, I came to this page as a last-ditch effort. Please help.

Things I assume you already did:
1. what it says to do: rootpw, look at the logs, try to fix, reboot or init with "systemctl default".
2. still had some problem.
3. started a thread in the appropriate subforum of your distribution's forum.
4. considered asking on irc.
5. haven't gotten a useful reply.

Do you have a manjaro livecd/usb?
Is it super-capable like the archlinux live media?
Get one of them, configure your BIOS/UEFI to boot it.

You can probably fix this by booting the live session and chrooting into your installation. From there I would remove lxdm, check your systemd services, exit and reboot.

you might have accidentally formatted the installation rather than the flashdrive, happened to me on manjaro before

Does anyone else develop habits incredibly easily?

At the moment, I have to quickly pull my shoulders back in a shrugging motion, several times a minute. I do it to temporarily alleviate the physical pain (caused by constantly doing it) and the mental urging I feel to do so.

I develop these habits so easily and I fucking hate it. I can even remember when I was about six or seven and getting called into the office because the teachers thought I had some kind of disease, as I would frequently jerk my head back and look up at the ceiling. Even today, people sometimes ask me what's wrong when I'll widen my eyes or shake my head over 30 times in an hour.

Sometimes, I'm lucky and only get stuck with merely tightening my fists or scratching my chin, but in times like these, I have a habit that causes me constant searing pain and muscle fatigue, even when I'm not doing the action.

Any tips to stop/control this, or will I just have to live with it?

Same for me, except it's that EVERY time I fart, I feel a giant urge to put my hand underneath my butthole, and then smell my fingers. If I can get away with doing it in public, I do.

I have the opposite problem. I can't form habits. At all. I can't do anything the same twice. Not like I have a compulsion to do it differently. It just never seems to work out the few times I've paid attention and tried to establish some order and consistency in my life.

I really hate the way things are now. I'm to afraid to approach a women because I don't want them to scream rape just because they don't find me attractive. Like the .1% chance at sex I don't feel like is worth going jail for or socially isolating my self because people thing I am a creep, only because I'm not what they find attractive so they react harshly.

I feel depressed most of the time. I can't find any friends that want to hang out with me and I am unable to focus on study or working on any hobbies/projects. I wake up late every day and stay in doors because its cold outside. There is nothing to do in this city where I can meet new people although it feels like everytime I leave the house I run into a new asshole. I have confidence issues but am due to do some public speaking soon and its sending my anxiety through the roof. I hate my room mate more and more ever day. Feel like I am drowning in shit. What do I do?

Read this book and do all the techniques it tells you to regularly:
http://www.monkeymax.com/phocadownload/health/Cognitive%20Behavioural%20Therapy%20for%20Dummies.pdf

It will work, trust me. This is the therapeutic method that has the most scientific backing behind it at the moment. What's great about it is that you can DIY and the effect will be close if not identical to one you would get from a therapist.
