Yep, this is an actual board. Congratulations to you.. you sad, lonely individuals. I think the best way to describe this board is to just copy paste the post that inspired it's trip on to /777/:
"There's too much happiness on this site already. We need more cold stuff, more darkness and unhappiness.
I propose a /grim/ board. Where we gather to share jokes that aren't funny. Grim stuff like gore perhaps. Murder stories. Genocide. Results of war. Pictures of areas in the dark. Pictures of crumbling ruins. Pictures of thing that are decreasing in value or are stagnant in value in the sense that they cannot get any more undesired. Also, Nigrachan is obligatory."

Lets have a minor tweak of the rules from the /777/, version. This board is not for gore. Gore posters will be banned. It's just for generally miserable shit, just go with the stuff that is in the above quote and you should be fine. Any further rules will be made up as we go along if necessary and will be added to this post.

Go Wild.

To request future /777/s use this thread.

Why? Because it's all so fucking much. It's just so goddamn much, everything. It's so overwhelming, all of it.

But I fight it. Life's about the fight, and the more clever you are, the more interesting the fight will be. Maybe it won't even seem like a fight at all.

But you know why I'm happy? Because minutes ago I found this board, and the thing about boards is that their full of real people. They're not a digital anomoly, this is all 100% human, and so beautiful. Out of entropy has risen such a thing, and that's a fine enough fact for me.

And I'm also happy because I'm aware of the fight. The fight against the entropy that is the causation for our current form of existence. And if you're aware of the fight, you're aware that every so often you can give in, because in a very strange way, a way that cuts through every and any level of farce and bullshit, it feels good to.

Not sure if I'm sad. But I absolutely love how this page is black. It's easy on the eyes; not as blinding. Soft music to go with it which others seem to interpret as depressing. I come here mostly for that, and yeah I may sometimes feel like shit but it's only because of society which I'm starting to realize doesn't deserve to benefit from the fruits of being alone and being genuinely happy (which does not entail keeping your social composure intact. I'm talking arms flailing, a genuine rush of pleasure that is hard to shake off otherwise). They deserve the misery they put on themselves. Wish I wasn't so empathetic so I wouldn't feel the misery of them that I sometimes do. Other than that I like to think I'm happy.

I was originally going to post this on /phi/, but I realized that it would be more appropriate on /grim/.

One day, I realized that I didn't care when people died. Even before then, I never felt sad when I cried. I just knew I was supposed to cry. I hadn't completely broken off from Christianity then, so this scared me.

I then researched empathy, and what causes it. This lead me here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empathy-altruism

I then realized I had nothing to gain from helping other people. Which caused me to ask the question:

Why should I care about someone else? I just happen to have cognitive thought, and there just happen to be other things around me with cognitive thought. What do I gain from helping other people?

I realized that I didn't have nearly the time on Earth to come to terms with myself. This led me to research eternal youth and cryonic preservation (to preserve myself until eternal youth becomes a thing).

Fortunately, I can write this now (I'm still in school, but a cyber-charter school allows me to do this). But I'm running out of time. I may come back to add more, when I get back into this mood.

Hey /grim/

I wanted to share this guy's story with you. It's basically mine and someone asked for it:

http://www.ciproispoison.com/1_2_My-Story.html
http://www.ciproispoison.com/1_4_Blog.html

Fellow was prescribed an antibiotic that destroyed his body from the inside out. Ate away all the connective tissue and damaged his nervous system, and left to rot by clueless doctors. This guy embodies the spirit of grim. It sounds so implausible it has to be some one-off occurrence or a nutjob right?

Well exact same thing happened to me at the end of last year after taking the same antibiotic. My whole body got wrecked with the same problems: all tendons and joints fucked, can barely walk still today, brain fried, neuropathy, etc., much of what he listed. Some still appearing today, some no doubt permanent. Not quite as strong as his but instead combined with other medical problems it worsened. Doctors and staff try to sweep it under the rug, most aren't even aware the drug has FDA black labels warning about some of this (there was not a single word of warning by doctors or pharmacy spoken or written, and no requirement where I am apparently), there's no treatment, no way to prove cause/effect, and no compensation. The doctor gave me the pills for what turned out to be a wrong diagnosis (for a problem that - guess what - I still have and it didn't even remotely fix!).

Trusting doctors and other people = biggest mistake of my life. The worst is, even at the time, I knew better. This kills me every day. I knew from contacts you have to look everything up they give you because they get too much of their info directly from pharmaceutical reps, and from experience that half the time a family doctor's diagnosis is bullshit. Antibiotics are a 40 billion dollar year industry and it shows.

I live in a different dimension now, a dimension of nothing but grim and pain and losing sanity and circling and repeating. Everything that happened before this has become meaningless, as of this week, entirely. I was sort of fit before and relied on that. A month before this happened I had what someone called an epiphany and was about to change a lot of things in my life. In an overload of ironies I don't want to detail, it was all crushed and things I just found out I needed badly in life all became fantasies as I lost every means to get to them, and every means to make anything right.

This happened to my mother as well!
She has advanced neuropathy in her feet and it's working up to her legs and now it is in her hands too.

I don't know if it is cipro that did it, but while she was in the hospital she was given a medication that she reacted horribly to. Over the past year it's been breaking her down to the point that she has no job, has to give up her side business, drops everything, can't cook, sew, is deeply in debt, and she is telling me she will soon be in a wheelchair.

Watching her even a little bit is heartbreaking.
She was the most able woman I've ever known, and because one freak incident from a system we should be able to trust she is now falling apart.

I feel for her, and by god I feel for you.

Sorry her life got ruined by this too and you had to watch someone degrade that way. It's degrading as hell let me tell you. This is the worst club to find yourself in. Doesn't discriminate by age.

Fair chance it was a fluoroquinolone though it could have been one of another class like flagyl or something else that produces neuropathy. They don't warn you, depending where you live there's no paper warning, and if you find yourself in the hospital unexpectedly you can wake up with the stuff pumped into your veins, to hell with your makeup and history. A few doctors prescribe active B vitamins along with courses of flagyl and other to prevent neuropathy because sometimes it's caused by their depletion and can prevent it, but most don't know or bother.

You literally can't trust anyone with anything this important because they'll ruin you through sheer ignorance and incompetence. I loathe them and the pharma snakes for it, but in the end it was my mistake. Your mother probably had no way of knowing and had to learn the hardest way possible. Not to mention accessible medicine is basically stone age.

These days I try to ignore it all which sometimes works purely because my memory, attention and brain have zombified. I manage to write and reason to an extent but for all intents I'm not human. It's insanely hard to give a fuck about anything and not fall into the same traps. Some things slowly improved, replaced by worse ones. It's not going away.

There's probably not much I can say that would help her, but guaranteed she's not alone. That wasn't much comfort to me but it makes other people feel better.

Hello /grim/.

I've lurked various message boards, mostly on 4chan, yet I've never posted on any of them. Tonight I got drunk, and when everyone went to sleep I managed to find this one. The alcohol is probably a major contributor to the courage it took to make this post. I've struggled with depression, dysfunction, suicidal thoughts and bullies for the majority of my life. My first vivid memory is my uncle, lying dead on the cold garage floor, as my grandfather screamed at him to wake up. This happened in '95, when I was 3 years old.

I think this memory is a major reason why I've never taken my own life. I know, it's the age old "think of what you'd do to your family!" argument, but I can see the pain in my grandfather's eyes, to this day. I could not imagine putting him through that again. My mother, aunt and grandmother have inherited their own dysfunction from all of it, though it is not as obvious as my grandfather's.

I've been through 3 divorces, an absentee father and verbal abuse. I've struggled with low self esteem, to the point of literally avoiding all contact with women, until very recently. Some serious bullshit has happened in my life, but I've kept reasons to move forward.

I do not intend to make myself sound superior to any of you. I grew up Christian, but became atheist six years ago. Since then, I've acknowledged that there is no rational point to life. We exist because our biology perpetuates our existence. That is all. I understand why you feel like killing yourselves. I decided for myself, though, that I would push forward, and try to find happiness. We spend far more time being dead than we do alive, after all. From ages 18 through 21 it was a very common thought for me. I just want you all to know that I'm out there, trying to make it work, and I care a whole fucking lot about you. I can't even pretend to have all the answers. But I'm willing to talk to you and try my best. Please, throw an existential question at me. Vent to me. Tell me why you want to end it. Tell me why your confidence is so low. I genuinely want to help, even if my efforts are all in vain.

so anything i say to bring light to you is in vain?
you want to know something?
all life has meaning, even if it does not last forever, you still make an impact on everything and everyone you meet and interact with
you went to school in *********
Your picture will remain there for over a 100 years
you work and you meet and see people everyday, even if you do not work, you still make a presence, even if it just means a person has to step around you. you still did something with your existence,
you brought love to your parents, you made there life feel more whole
your not just another person,
we all are special,
even me
there are times we just lay in bed and don't want to get up, but dammit, you open your eyes and tell you self, where would the people you talked to, and all the others, where would they be without you? you made there impact on them, even by just making eye contact
that fact that you exist,
is more powerful then anything
make your impact? hell you already made it
and you will make more impacts just by living on.

Selfishness does exist in us all, some of us embrace it, others fight it, suicide is classified as a selfish act. But then again, if you have no one who cares about you, and you are satisfied with the fact of the impact you made on this world, even if it was so little and meaningless like the rest of us here... i will not judge you, i will not damn you, i will not support you.

what i will do, is hope for you, and i will hope that you will find the peace or happiness that you all longed for in the end...

i have depression, anxiety, PTSD, but i am also medicated. the pills are not me, my life and mind dwell deep within me, i think, often more then i should. ignorance is bliss indeed, we are all moths flying towards a flame, theres no stopping that fact, we all die, but being that moth that knows the flame is right there... and you think of nothing else but that fire, is true helplessness...

i tell myself the post above that i made many times, for damn it, i enjoy life sometimes, there are things i do, i forget that flame is right infront of me, but i close my eyes and continue flying my pathetic life towards it, and in the end, when it engulfs me, i will know that there was a time, that i had forgotten that the flame was there...

I hope for myself and for you.

Pro tip: To not think about suicide or other depressing things when you try to sleep or have time to think, pick a movie series, simpsons, family guy, what ever, and watch that till your eyes close. when you wake up, have it still playing, try it... let me know what it does, if anything for any of you that find yourselfs lost...

i still feel love...

im no moth flying towards a flame.

i am a happy chipmunk that does his thing and tries to do the best of his life, while my time is running up and will finally consume me.

what you say is no fact, it is a way to consider things. and there is always an optimistic and a pessimistic way.

Yeah I'm like that as well. I try to be jolly because I like myself more when I'm happy but often I just don't have the energy and so I simply adopt a more passive and neutral personality, siphoning the good mood from others like an energy vampire. People sometimes ask me why I'm so serious and quiet, I don't mind, I simply tell them not to worry because I am content and comfortable like this. Not everyone likes this though, some people have flat out told me to my face that they don't enjoy spending time with me because I appear so serious on the outside. I don't take it to heart though, not anymore, I'm done trying to change who I am to please others. Some types of people just aren't meant to get along, the only thing we can do is be confident on who we are regardless how others feel about it and simply push on, it is only then we can find the people we can connect with on a deep primal level. Never doubt yourself, it's all over when you do. This turned into a weird pseudo-motivational speech, oh well.

If we're talking of suicide via a gun then technically the fastest way the bullet can enter the brain and do the most amount of damage is through the eye socket. Even the thought of that makes me cringe but it would probably be so fast there would be no time to feel pain. Probably.

You are low level attention whore at best. A truly suicidal person wouldn't be put of by the taste of a fucking drink.

Additionally, you are an idiot for choosing this method. Gulp it down and enjoy your slow and painful death from liver toxicity. I hate you.

I'm killing myself tonight.
I'm all alone and trapped in my parents' house for eternity. I grew up loving my sister very much and once her schizophrenia kicked in, I was forced to watch her go from a straight-A student all the way to a homeless alcoholic loser. The worst part is she walked out on her current 2-year-old daughter just so she could go get laid, and ended up pregnant a second time.
I've never even been able to get a girlfriend in this area, and the girls i've showed any interest in treat me like I have nothing of value to add to their lives. And I can't leave this area because I can't get a job, anywhere. Every SnagAJob interview was just be getting dicked around and lied to by managers.
I spent so much time being pissed off about my sister that I lost all my focus, smoked weed and failed out of Job Corps., and lost my reasoning to the point where I was getting F's in college and believing that my work was a good effort. I spent all my grant money on pot and getting laid, and now i'm lost with no friends. All my "friends" only want to hang out if I have weed, and my only 2 friends that are sincere about my company are caught up and depressed just like me.
So sayanora.

if you have already lost everything you have nothing more to lose.

dont get caught in your fate and your sadness.
i know it seems like there is no way out, but most times there is, only if you are by your own, you will not find it

you must know, when you are feeling bad and start smoking pot - everything gets worse. you dont realise like a broken leg, which is broken and cant carry you

you seem to be able to walk along with a broken psyche or mentality and weed breaks it more and more
you just dont see it so explicit

it causes depressions when you have the wrong preconditions and shizophrenia. thoughts that everyone hates you or everyone is fed up with you

and if the people even might think like that, weed strenghthens these negative feelings. completely unneccessary.

i know you just see no sense in anything.
