    there's an old movie version of it that's pretty decent too.

    Rainsford remembered the shots. They had come from the right, and doggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. For a seemingly endless time he fought the sea. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more and then--

    Rainsford heard a sound. It came out of the darkness, a high screaming sound, the sound of an animal in an extremity of anguish and terror.

    He did not recognize the animal that made the sound; he did not try to; with fresh vitality he swam toward the sound. He heard it again; then it was cut short by another noise, crisp, staccato.

    "Pistol shot," muttered Rainsford, swimming on.

    Ten minutes of determined effort brought another sound to his ears--the most welcome he had ever heard--the muttering and growling of the sea breaking on a rocky shore. He was almost on the rocks before he saw them; on a night less calm he would have been shattered against them. With his remaining strength he dragged himself from the swirling waters. Jagged crags appeared to jut up into the opaqueness; he forced himself upward, hand over hand. Gasping, his hands raw, he reached a flat place at the top. Dense jungle came down to the very edge of the cliffs. What perils that tangle of trees and underbrush might hold for him did not concern Rainsford just then. All he knew was that he was safe from his enemy, the sea, and that utter weariness was on him. He flung himself down at the jungle edge and tumbled headlong into the deepest sleep of his life.

    When he opened his eyes he knew from the position of the sun that it was late in the afternoon. Sleep had given him new vigor; a sharp hunger was picking at him. He looked about him, almost cheerfully.

    "Where there are pistol shots, there are men. Where there are men, there is food," he thought. But what kind of men, he wondered, in so forbidding a place? An unbroken front of snarled and ragged jungle fringed the shore.

    He saw no sign of a trail through the closely knit web of weeds and trees; it was easier to go along the shore, and Rainsford floundered along by the water. Not far from where he landed, he stopped.

    Some wounded thing--by the evidence, a large animal--had thrashed about in the underbrush; the jungle weeds were crushed down and the moss was lacerated; one patch of weeds was stained crimson. A small, glittering object not far away caught Rainsford's eye and he picked it up. It was an empty cartridge.

    Therapists are weird things.

    I had one that was a christian mom who told me I had to believe in god to solve my problems. Bless her restraint on not openly chiding me for being gay, but my lord did her treatment of me change when that came out.

    But now I have an awesome therapist who helps me plan practical steps on bettering my life and is someone I look forward to talking to.

    Kinda an even keel, the benefit/damage therapy has caused.

    Mine wasn't anything that belief-wise went against me or anything. He just completely betrayed my trust in the worst possible way. Set up a hypothetical situation that basically hit all the triggers of hatred I had/have for my dad, then made him even more of an asshole in this situation and asked what I would do if that happened. When the response was that I'd get a gun and either just threaten him with it or outright shoot him if I felt I had to, the therapist decided I had just admitted that I would shoot my dad if I went home that night, and called my parents and brought them into the meeting right away to tell them that, even offering to them the police services if they wanted it.



    Also; appreciate it Prohass and Cosmic, though the talking about it thing is relatively easy if you get me going on it.

    The hard stuff for me still is like, deciding what to do with his possessions and coming across old photos or something.

    That really cheesy thing that Kinect does where it takes photos of you as you play? Yeah, I'm really glad that feature exists now.

    i know quite a few women with double-D or larger breasts

    not a single one of them doesn't bitch about the back problems their rack creates

    the hell's a matter with you, arivia

    if you're taking hormones and stuff don't you have the option to have whatever size breasts you want?

    why not get a healthy C going

    Admitting to myself that my parents might not be the greatest people in the world was hard as fuck too. I suppose that's just part of growing up... It was much harder admitting that my surviving older brother is pretty much a womanizing douche-bag. I looked up to him for a long time, and basically realized that the worst parts of my personality are a direct result of me trying to emulate him and get his attention in my younger years.

    I can easily say this is not at all a problem for me to do. Really, it's harder to find something nice to say about my father than anything else. I mean, he's not all bad, but the man is detestable, and liked by no one, and for good reason.

    Even his sister had to come alone to see him when me and my sisters were visiting him, because her husband refused to be around him. And her husband is one of the nicest relatives I've ever known.

    The worst parts of my personality, at least socially, can partially be attributed to me having gone into a very tight mental shell just to keep myself from going crazy when I lived under his sole custody for the entirety of middle school through high school.

    I just kind of had to stop caring about anything, because he more or less trained me to hate myself for making any sort of mistake about anything; he'd scream and curse when he was mad, or just give me disappointed condescending looks over the most mundane shit.

    I am pretty sure that he realized at some point that I was never going to be anything at all like the son he really wanted, and he hated me for it, either out of sheer contempt for me, or contempt for his perceived failure in raising me right, or both.

    Either way, he clearly just gave up on getting anywhere at some point and just stopped trying to be helpful or useful as a father figure in any way, and just spewed hateful things at me at ever opportunity.

    He actually quit coming to me for my child therapy sessions when my therapist tried to convince me that failure was the end of the world so long as I kept trying, because he interpreted this as "it is okay to fail", and just bailed.

    I'm sure that he also had no interest in sticking around when it was becoming clear that I wasn't the only one who needed to change.

    It took a long, long time for me to stop being so afraid of making mistakes before I could bring myself to risk doing anything without absolute certainty that I would succeed at it.

    Coming to terms with my always-on anxiety that fuels my depression and indirectly my problems with alcohol abuse was something...

    When my coworkers and friends ask me why I enjoy blacking out from alcohol I tend to just look at them and respond, "Because it lets me not be in control."

    my psychiatrist is a good guy but he basically exists to ask me how my medication is going and adjust it accordingly

    largely because my psychological diagnoses are sorta tricky to do anything about

    i'm bipolar, for one thing

    and for another I have something he only describes as "Personality Disorder (Not Otherwise Specified)"

    that's the official diagnosis

    what it translates to is "you are an asshole to the extent that it is a medical condition but you aren't really a sociopath or a narcissist the current DSM doesn't cover this but you are certainly not right"
