Woah, sushi, that's really rough.

>I wanted to go to medical school and I've prepared whatever it takes, even facing the sexist stereotypes in my country.

First, that's really admirable! I know it doesn't help with your situation, but you should be proud of your determination to be a doctor.

>Sure, being an accountant has a good pay, but it doesn't matter if I ended up hanging myself mid-way.

Yeah, I would feel the exact same about being an accountant. The salary attached to such a job just doesn't move me like it does some people.

>My grades are really bad and it's just giving me suicidal thoughts trying to make it afloat.

What would your mum do if you failed this year of accountancy school? That's one way to force her to accept that you resent the path she is laying down for you: just stop trying and fail. If you fail so badly that you won't graduate or be able to practise as an accountant, then there's no way your mum can force you to become one.

I'm sure you have, but you also need to think about a possible compromise. Would you be happy working as an accountant for a private hospital, for example? Or is your heart so set on medicine that nothing short of front-line doctor duties would make you happy?

Whatever you do, I'm sure you'll make it through. Ganbatte sushi!

What kind of country are you in that being an accountant has more status and better pay than a doctor?! I have colleagues who were downright pushed into medicine precisely because of both these points. That's ludicrous. Are they stupid?

Have you looked into foreign scholarships? If you have good enough grades for medicine, you could enroll in it in your country then immediately bail out and have essential commodities paid for. Take advantage of all the obstacles in your way to really paint a good sob story and you're pretty much set. Maybe you can even avoid the whole enrollment process in your country and get a foreign scholarship+enrollment right off the bat.

I have major gender dysphoria and its certainly a drag on life, and I just want to rant about it, and you guys are all nice (oh yeah so fair warning this is just me going on about my problems, also this may be really long and I don't know if there's a character limit so this may be multiple parts).

I'm just never going to look or feel right, I don't think. Because I just happened to be born with this mental illness. As a kid, I always liked to imagine myself as a girl for some reason. In internet circles I'd pretend I was a girl, for no real reason other then preference. It wasn't like I was doing it for kicks, saying I was a guy after flirting with someone, i really just liked being a girl instead. I lived in a pretty liberal area, so I found out about trannies by middle school, and by age 14 i was pretty sure I was one. Unfortunately, I was a very early bloomer, and puberty hit me really hard. I was 5'10" at 14 and only kept growing, grew facial hair in middle school, broad shoulders, square jaw, everything. And I hated it as much then as I did now. I grew my hair out and to this day have real nice hair with perfect curls but that was kind of the end of things I actually liked about myself. With my frame, nobody ever really mistook me for a girl, even from behind. Guy friends I had that were super short or just feminine in general got mistaken for girls without even trying or wanting to and I felt really jealous. When I was 15 I started having friends call me "Abby" online and told them about some of this. I started getting that feeling of "being a women trapped in a man's body" people talk about as opposed to "being a man that want to be a woman," a change you don't really notice until it happens. That felt pretty nice. Every now and then, when I was home alone, I'd sneak into my sister's room and wear her clothes and look in the mirror for a while. I stopped because it felt like I was doing something perverted even though I wasn't attracted to women (more on that later), but it felt nice to take pictures of myself in dresses, even though I deleted them afterwards. but…yea. I just really hated being a man. Sometimes I would curl up and stare at all the hair on my legs and nearly have a breakdown over that.(Part 1/?)

I feel like you didn't actually respond to my post, but okay

>I get the sensation described in viharts vid about this… I find it difficult to image not caring if you can reproduce or not.

You mean the sensation she described as "idiot teenager feelings?" The whole point of that video is that it's important to realize that not everyone thinks the same way that you do, and that what's important to you might not be important to someone else, and vice-versa.

>The desire to change from a fertile man to an infertile woman is extremely strange

So are you okay with trans people who don't get surgery (i.e. most of them) and therefore remain fertile? It's true that HRT reduces fertility, but it doesn't destroy it completely. Also, how do you feel about non-trans people who choose to be infertile, via vasectomies or tube-tying? Do you see that as a form of self-harm?

Just work towards doing the sex change through magic like >>8445 suggests

If you reach a high level in yoga, or some sort of ritualistic magic
there are apparently no limits as to what you can accomplish on a physical level.
In the beginning this means getting healthy, because only a healthy body can support a powerful mind.
But also quitting pornography and learning to prevent ejaculation.

And who knows, as soon as you reach a certain level of health you might not experience any body dysphoria anymore.

I haven't participated in this discussion until now, but just chiming in on this – I don't think there's anything wrong with not caring about children or fertility. There's an entire pan of society that adheres to childfree beliefs, and claiming that a woman who doesn't want children is some kind of abomination or failure is kind of an outdated way of thinking.

Ultimately, how one views themselves is influenced by how others see them (and thus how society defines gender). We judge whether someone is a man or woman by their physical appearance, behaviour, and, yes, genitals. Varying degrees of dysphoria lead to different consequences, and while someone would be fine with 'passing' and being recognized in public as a person of the other gender, others are too deep in the condition to handle seeing a cock or a vag down there.

I think that, if the entire medical process (in terms of mental health, pre-surgery treatment, …) was better handled, and if we had more support options for those abandoned by their families (family rejection and substance abuse are significant predictors for suicide attempts), a lot more people could be saved. And then, of course, you have the whole discourse about whether or not accepting trans people as an 'attribute', rather than a mental illness that needs to be corrected back to their sex, is worth the societal impact it will have. That's another subject.

But it's definitely more complicated than just having kids or not. We live for more than that.

Any stories of funny/weird/dumb things you did as a kid.

When I was ~9 years old I was at this summer camp. One of the activities was an arts and crafts project where we made custom CD holders. There was this one girl that I didn't like for whatever reason that brought things to put inside their holder, I guess they knew ahead of time we were going to make them. Later on while we were at a baseball game I stole their CD holder and hid it in my backpack. Like you'd expect they got really upset while I stayed quiet. When I got home I threw it into the attic and kept it there for years. All I remember being in there was a Shrek DVD. I still feel bad about making a child cry for no reason, I guess I can think of this as coming clean.

I love doing that too. My passion was inspired by a dude who had this random online presence so every time I googled him I'd find some new site. So far I've found 2 sites he uses to host his art (which was just one due to complex reasons), His random blogs/abandoned social media, 2 abandoned/half done sites he made with his friends for fun, his open directory (somehow), his 3 random webcomics which have their own site, and by looking for the images for this post I found 2 forums he posted on. Every few months I google him again because it's like a jackpot were you get something new with each spin.

I have recently become unemployed and the jobs I have received calls back from during my new job search are asking me to take these cognitive ability tests.

As a kid, I achieved remarkable scores on some standard IQ tests, making me qualified for some "gifted" classes. Today, I can barely sustain the attention necessary to follow a set of instructions, let alone complete these intelligence tests.

I was wondering why people issue these tests, what merit they actually have, and how much preparation plays a factor in these types of tests.

I'm asking because if they are true, I guess I'm retarded.

 No.7781

The last thing I know about the workplace and hiring policies is whatever's on the mind of HR departments. I assume they do these kinds of tests to check if you're above a threshold of intelligence and to see how much responsibility they can give you.

I don't like youtube videos about this kind of subject, but this video should I answer your question about how preparation affects the result.

Intelligence test can measure someone's problem solving capacities, but that's it. A lot of people seem to use those tests to evaluate their worth, eventhough it's possible to be a complete piece of shit with a high IQ or a truly selfless person with a below average intelligence.

That's my 2 cents.

Does anyone have trouble solving problems after a continuous period of solving problems? It feels like I can't think logically after working on a problem for about three hours, even if I take a break. Those hours also have to occur immediately after I wake up. Taking a nap helps.

I was thinking that my problem is related to attention and could be helped by meditating. I've never done it and I don't really know how, but maybe some of you have tried it before.

It sounds kind of woo woo to be honest.

>>5908 I would say working for three hours straight on a problem (assuming you're focused the whole time) is a pretty good feat! Definitely takes a lot of mental energy.

After that, it's completely normal to need a good break before going back to work. Not just going to the bathroom or drinking a cup of coffee in five minutes, I mean an actual break. Get out of your workplace and interact with people if possible for at least half an hour. Then maybe you'll be able to start working again. Probably with lower performance than before, but hey, we're humans. We can only stay fully focused a few hours a day, so take it easy.


Regarding meditation, if you want some legit stuff just google zazen or vipassana, but don't expect some drastic results. It may help you a little bit with ignoring distractions or keeping anxiety away, but it's not a magic pill.

There's a lot of bullshit going around the topic of meditation because it's being commodified by corporations and the new generation of self-help gurus who want to make a quick buck.

I started with the Tibetan teacher >>5915 linked but then moved to the Thai Forest Tradition because they are the most meditation-heavy school out there and have a lot of useful literature online, like the attached book.

I also recommend the Thai Forest Tradition, brahm has several youtubes and the books by sumedo and ajahn chah are really good. also The Mind Illuminated by Culadasa is really good if you want a book about purely meditation without all the theories surrounding buddism

Do you have any online friends sushi? How did you get them? What do you like to do with them?

I have a problem making online friends, because all the sites I go on are sushi rollymous. I have tried a few forums, but I can never commit to them, and they're usually pretty bad anyway. I dont have time for IRC, and I always make a big old booby of myself in live conversation. Do you think it's possible for me to make online friends, or should I stick to being by myself for the moment?

I know this is probably a super common question but I have no clue how. I work full time and everyday my schedule is wake up, go to work, go home, sleep. I don't really have any interest outside of my house and anyways I'm a shy and anxious person. I've tried discord servers as well but its difficult to join an already existing social group.

The saddest (and most hopeful) part is that I know there are tons of people in the same situation as me. The problem is getting these people together. More than anything I wish to be around people that make me feel safe and not always on guard.

Watching a feeling or emotion closely will negate much of the effect it has on your actions. Pain is the best example of this: it is designed to drag your attention to the site, but once it has achieved this it loses its bite, only to reemerge as your attention wanders.
For other emotions if you watch for too long they melt into their noisy components, or unravel upon finding their cause.
You do not need to empathise with the sensation of another's feelings to relate. Treat them like the biological machines they are, with feelings as a sparse representation of an information processing subroutine.

I met all of my current IRL friends on the Internet, or through those friends. I joined online chat groups or hobby groups with lots of users who shared my interests, and then sought out people in those groups who lived nearby, and did offline meets. I met a lot of interesting people and made lots of lasting friendships that way. All of my roommates currently are people I met online or through online friends. I find it way easier to get comfortable with someone by talking to them online first, than trying to get to know someone in person. Then when you meet up you already know each other a bit instead of feeling put on the spot and like you have to come up with talking points super fast to break the ice.
