Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'll allow it.

    But remember the previous agreement that it is implied you agreed to now.

    That is a good picture.
    I keep telling people I will get therapy. But I don't. I wish I cuold go. But then i would be admitting I have a problem. And that is very scary to me.

    Tell yourself plenty of other people (most of whom are completely sane, but they have problems that they feel the need to discuss in private or just want someone they know is good at giving advice to give them advice) go in for therapy. That you are not the only one and that is not an uncommon thing in this day and age?

    I would think that's a decent start.

    I think it's already been admitted.

    And it's not like saying "I have a problem" will make it exist or make it worse - it's existed prior to your admission, whether or not you've come to terms with the fact.

    Getting therapy will only help you. Don't you want to stop feeling like this? Refusing to admit to yourself that you have a problem (which it seems you've essentially already admitted, just by making that comment) will only hinder your recovery process. Don't do that to yourself.

    Nothing will change, nor is there anything anyone else can do for you, until you realize turning this all around starts with you taking the first step. Until then, all the effort from others in the world will go at a loss until you're ready to make that change yourself.


    On a lighter note, I went to a lecture (or an evening, if you will) with Brad Bird. That was pretty neat.

    What do the insane do? I feel like I'm kinda insane. Your words make sense to me but I am stubborn about it for some reason..

    edit: in hindsight i probably should have taken some of those free counseling sessions they had at my school while I was there. I had some pretty low points there.

    You've just spent the last hour admitting that you have a problem. Whether you were doing it jokingly or not, you know it's the case, you've admitted it to yourself, hell you've even admitted it to the girl you're obsessed with. It's open season on Prox admitting he has problems. You just need to admit it to someone who can actually do something about it.

    What you're doing right now is a placebo. You're posting about your problems and talking about going to therapy, and it makes you feel like you're starting to get control of your life, and then you just leave it at that. You've got. To. Go. Talk to someone. Possibly someone who will prescribe you something, since it sounds like it's getting desperate. If you can get a friend to take you, do it. Make them be your human alarm clock that drives you to your appointments, if need be, no matter how much you protest. You need to let go and let someone else help you, someone who isn't white words on a blue background.

    You're stubborn because you're letting your resistance get to you, and right now it's your biggest enemy.

    It'll do everything it can to stop you from getting shit done, but one of it's biggest strengths is instilling fear. Ironically, what you fear you have to do most is what you need to get done ASAP, so it's somewhat of a divining rod that tells you what has to be done.


    I would not hesitate to get therapy whenever I needed it. Anyone who thinks differently of me because of that could fuck right off.

    Fug makes a good case.

    I guess I just wanted to know that people cared. And I apologize for that.

    There's nothing wrong with wanting to know people care. We care so much that we want you to actually do something about it :)

    We care, but the caring of a bunch of avatars isn't enough. You can't just use this forum to keep backing yourself off of the ledge every few days. An internet forum is by no means a reliable suicide hotline, and some day, no matter how much we may care, it will let you down, and then what's going to happen?

    You're a very promising artist, Prox, and a cool guy, when you aren't letting this problem get the best of you. You can't just hinge a lifetime of hard work and talent on what someone says in a chat thread.

    It was a series of four "conversations" hosted by local John Carroll. Brad Bird's was the first of the series. He kind just talked about stuff I'm sure he's on record as having said before, but some of it was great to hear tonight.
