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

Post your mental health woes, and I'll do my best to help.

I suffer from ADD and Anxiety, although its become increasingly under control thanks to CBT, self help and medication(Adderall and Buspar).

Currently, my issues are eating and sleeping. Adderall is the obvious cause, many nights are spent feeling unable to fall asleep, and so i lay and toss and turn and look around and put on my sleep mask and turn out every tiny bit of light i find until I just say fuck it and get out of bed and wait for the Sun to come up.

I'm hoping to get a sleep aid soon, like Ambien or Lunesta. Melatonin leaves me feeling really disoriented and extremely groggy upon waking, and Benadryl has lost its effectiveness.

As for eating, many days I just forget to eat until my stomach growls in anger about it. and even then my meals are very small, and i only end up having one a day. whenever I don't take my meds, I eat a metric ton of food.

These things combined definitely don't help me focus, or my anxiety. Its been getting progressively worse.

any speculation would be appreciated

Do you just have any advice about how to lesson tobacco stains on teeth? I switched to ecig recently but the stains are still left over from before and it's hard to tell what stuff is a scam and what stuff actually works.

Brush your teeth, the stains will fade in time. Anything that provides instant results is either destroying the enamel on your teeth or simply covering it up until the coating fades leaving you back where you are.

From time to time, put some bicarbonate in your toothbrush when you brush. Not always, it can fuck you for good.

If you can, talk to your dentist and ask them about cosmetic whitening. They'll do a way better job than Crest White strips or whatever.

if you can't/won't. Use either Crest White strips or go on amazon and find Watts Power Smile whitening treatment. Its strong stuff, and essentially the same stuff dentists would use, only in a nice diy kit.

Lastly, take good care of your teeth. as in, brush after meals, and use mouthwash(and floss)!(moreso for gum health rather than teeth whitening)

Don't use whitening toothpastes, they're abrasive and if used alot will wear away your teeth. Don't use Baking soda(sodium bicarbonate) regularly. Its abrasive, and if you do it for months/years it'll eventually wear down your teeth.

If you want to use them, use them maybe once a week.

really, just talk to your dentist though

Plan your meals and choose very caloric meals. Get your calories from fat, not from carbohydrates. Nuts are great, for example.

It is entirely up to the user, honestly. But, this is normally not a good place to do so. And my prediction is that the true emotional impact hasn't landed yet. But, as long as you are in a good head space, it's a good thing. However, I cannot imagine how that could be the case.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post something like this. Basically I'm looking for something akin to 4chan's /adv/. My post isn't about finding a girlfriend so no one has any interest in helping me there.

I'll try and keep this short and sweet. I'm very unsatisfied with where I'm living and what I'm doing right now. I'm finishing up my third year working towards a computer science degree. At one point I was convinced I would be happy doing this, but nowadays I'm not feeling motivated, both in and out of class. A lot of friends I've made in this program are constantly coding, working on projects outside of their classes as well, and I figure if I don't have that sort of drive then this might not be for me. In classes, I'm keeping up, doing what it takes to make the grade, but I'm not soaking up all I could be like someone who actually enjoys what they're studying. What sucks is I'm not sure what I'd like to do, either.

What I'd like to do is move closer to my girlfriend; she lives about 2 hours away in an area I feel like I'd be happier in. I want life experience in general, like living on my own and managing my own finances. I've lived with my parents the last 20 years and I've held jobs and managed my money internally, but I've always had their support for living necessities. Problem is, I know it's extremely hard to find work, especially well-paying work, if you're not a graduate or skilled in some trade. I only have 3 years of college education and retail experience to put on my resume. I'm extremely doubtful I'll be able to find suitable work with that.

So I guess my question is this: should I stay or should I go? If I stay, how do I stay motivated to continue my school work, or how can I identify my passion so I can work on commercializing it? If I go, how will I find work that pays well enough to allow me to stay afloat? What kind of trade would allow me to start working relatively soon and make comfortable paychecks if all I'm interested in is making money?

I've been a NEET for the entirety of my childhood and teenage years, and this year I decided to join the military.

Everyday, from 7am to 7pm I do army stuff, and I do it reasonably well. I function with my colleagues, abide to orders and don't fuck up. I'm liked by everyone and nothing objectively bad ever happens.

Thing is, everytime I get home I have a mental breakdown of sorts, It feels like I spend the majority of the day being somebody I'm not and it all feels numb and surreal, I feel detached from myself and it's awful. I want to go back to my NEET lifestyle and spend time with my close ones.

I feel like I don't like anybody there, and if I were to be myself they would ostracize me, and the whole time I could kill to go home and interact with people I do feel comfortable around.

Is this normal ? Is this what being a functional member of society is like ? Inducing depersonalization in order to "fit in" ?

This fucking sucks guys

My linux mint distro has been unable to show new updates for months now.

I tried the commands below but they didn't work either.

What to do?

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Not at all.

My response was to
>I don't want to read a longass wiki page to install a modern operating system.
Because I still stand by that that's a fucking stupid statement. Linux is a modern operating system, as is Arch. But they are also _hobbyist_ operating systems (except maybe Ubuntu....maybe). So insinuating that either Linux or Arch are not "modern" is fucking ridiculous.

Furthermore, my question was not facetious, it was sincere: if you are that adverse to reading a wiki page, I don't understand why you'd want to run Linux, because nearly all Linux users are hobbyists, which means they do it because they are interested. Not wanting to read 1 wiki article does not show interest. So my question was sincere, why run Linux?

Allow me to rephrase my comment:
>You read the wiki the first time, then after that you know it.
TRANSLATION: Your statement implies that the wiki article some kind of reference that you need to refer to at every install, when it is merely instructions that can be learned.
>It's seriously not that fucking hard.
Your implication that a wiki article is enough reason to discredit a distribution is mistaken in that the task at hand is extremely doable.

In terms of my inferred elitism, I never said "EVERYONE SHOULD RUN ARCH", I just said the excuse given is bull.

Exactly. Most of the article isn't even about Arch, it's about Linux. Partitioning disks. Using GRUB.

I can understand not wanting to use Arch coming in when you are completely new to Linux, because that could be downright overwhelming. But if you've already used Linux Mint for a few months, it's not unreasonable to say "hey, here's how you partition a disk using fdisk instead of GParted."

I also agree with your two points. Arch is really awesome in its philosophy, in that you keep things simple, use the right tools, and provide documentation. Though no distro is perfect, Arch has pissed off its community in the past.

editing init scripts and repairing xorg is hardly learning anything worthwhile.

you can do the same shit in mint, or ubuntu, without worrying every boot whether its going to actually start again.

I don't like to think of myself as a furry because I've met those people, stayed in their homes, and been to their parties and by and large they are the worst, most awkward dudes and I don't want to associate myself with that.

But the venn diagram between me and them has a hell of a lot of overlap. I'm a little bit of a sperglord (who has been through a lot of shit this year) and soft stuff calms me down when I'm getting anxiety attacks so I've started wearing a tail clipped to my hip out in public. I've got fur blankets in my home. I like petplay and collars in the bedroom. I browse /fur/ on the regular because that shit gets me off.

But oh my god I don't want to identify myself with those people. People have been asking me lately if I am a furry and honestly it's easier to just say "Yes." because then the conversation is over and I don't have to talk about it anymore (this is the same tactic I use to deflect conversation when people ask me if I am a racist or a alcoholic, just say "Yes." and the conversation dies).

I think building your self-identity around a sexual fetish is fucking retarded, so even though I share a lot in common with people who call themselves furries, I dont know what to do when people ask me about it. I've mostly been leaning on "Something like that" and other deflections).

Is it beter to just own it? Lean into it? Keep doing what I do but not mentioning it would be the best approach, but since I wear a tail in public and like my kinky dog shit in the bedroom, inevitably some people end up asking me about it and I never know how to respond.

I dont have a "fursona", I think fursuits look super dumb, and I have zero patience for people who insist being called "SPROOTFOX MCFLUFFERSON" or whatever, and yet here I am ending up getting grouped in with those guys.

Help me with my dumb, faggoty problem, 7chan.

You'd probably have a great time in a fursuit if you like soft things and have anxiety issues. They're basically a place where you can hide from everyone no matter where you are, no one would even know you were in it.
It'd probably be better to either own up to it or find something different to calm you, like a rabbit's foot or something that isn't directly related to furries.

Useless 15/02/17(Tue)02:22 No. 258

Wear the tail. Girls wear that shit all the time, people will think you're emo or just gay. As for the fur-hate on the Internet, I'm convinced that most people jump on furs because in "polite" society fags are off the social shitlist (for now).

I'm bisexual, Amerifag, white, and other categories ad nauseum but there's no group you can belong to where someone, in some era, did not shit the bed. So yeah, every group makes you look bad. Take a deep breath and don't worry about it.

Full discloure: I like furry porn as well as real porn. No fursona, no fur name, and no fursuit, but if someone asks, I am not gonna lie about being a bit furry.

So, why are you a racist and an alcoholic?
