I'm mulling over certain frustrating personal topics tonight, as I tend to do when alone at night and the circumstances give me an opportunity to mentally stew on recent events, and certain questions come to me that I'd like to see other friends' thoughts on. I've researched quite a bit into the distinct but related concepts of anxiety, depression, and dysphoria in my life. Yet these specific questions go beyond the standard discussions to places that I'd like to see explored more. For context, I've included personal details in spoiled form, but please feel free to ignore them completely. It's the questions by themselves that really vex me.

First:
>What does it mean if one or more of these strike you during certain times of day and/or certain days of the week in a distinct way?
In my own case, nights appear to be worse than mornings and afternoons, with weekends being better than weekends. I think. Not quite sure, though.

Second:
>What does it mean if one or more of these strike you when you're with certain people, either in a physical sense or an online sense, more than otherwise... or less than otherwise?
In my own case, I'm quite the introvert and can't get that socially engaged, even in terms of meeting with just one person or such, for that long. However, even as interaction seems to drain my mental batteries in a sense... it also often sets up a psychological blanket. Being by itself either at home or in some other isolating environment (such as driving a car, alone, during odd hours) appears to be a trigger for unhappiness past a certain point. I also find that thinking about being socially active itself might be an unhappiness trigger, oddly, even if I'm doing alright when I actually am active... though, to make things even more messy, conversations with others can make for radical mood swings depending on the circumstances.

Third:
>What does it mean if one or more of these strike you despite receiving beneficial therapy in terms of both counseling visits and medication... can it be said that both forms of treatment only ease things up to a certain point to where additional breakthroughs have to be a 'you' thing?
In my own case, I've been working through different issues for years and years now only for the process to feel rather lPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

If you are having trouble during certain times over other than it sounds like there is a common stressor.
Are you at work or class when these feelings happen?

If one or more strike you with specific individuals then something about them is triggering the response. It can be a multitude of things and hard to pinpoint a specific.

Therapy does help I find, even if it takes decades. We are not made in a day and it takes even longer to unmake us without destroying ourselves.

This one I understand the most. Sweetie, you are valid as you are, first and foremost. I deeply know the pain of staring at my hands and knowing they are not what they should be. I know what it is to see your shadow and have a moment of fear because you don't see it as your own. You are worthy of life, of respect, and of love.

I want to state that it sounds like you should talk to a gender therapist that has the medical knowledge and training to guide you better than we can.

Would it be overstepping to ask what about your bi/pansexuality makes you uncomfortable?

And to answer why at least I am seeking out HRT and SRS, it is because I feel it would help me better present the person I am to the world rather than have to act as an individual I am not.
While I may not like the body I have I can do what I can to make it more comfortable. And for the things that like height I lean into them. While I wish I was like my sister at a nice 5' so my lover could tower over me I just have to be a tall queen than act like she is 5'.

what a very difficult experience you are facing, foxy.

though i can relate to some of these feelings, i cannot say i understand how very difficult it must be to experience such dysphoria of the physical self

i think, for me, if i am struck with anxiety or depression, i try to push through it. same, if i am talking with certain people - i have learned very well to fake it, until i make it. and though i do not seek any therapy, i find i try to push through it until i can find time to ... be alone, and process. often times, that involves staring at a plant or something... for a while. or trying to sleep it off.

dysphoria is beyond my understanding... i think, certainly not to the degree it must feel for you, dear friend

Yeah, I read a fair bit. Right now I'm very much enjoying the classic Tom Jones, which I use as an example for my own writing (Fielding's novel is similar in tone to what I am trying to do). I discovered when I was in college that I really enjoy eighteenth century literature.

I'm also reading Sartre's Being and Nothingness for a philosophy group. An important book. Sartre lays out in technical terms what is sometimes called "the identity problem" by the naturalists. This is dry, but rewarding.

Soon I'll be reading Norbert Wiener's The Human Use of Human Beings. Wiener was a pioneer in cybernetics in the early twentieth century, a technical discipline dealing with messaging. Being something on an internet denizen, I'm very interested in the development of cyberpsychology as a field, but I haven't found many serious attempts at properly characterizing it.

Spouting memes and references, for me, is not longer a creative form of entertainment. Memes being as fickle as they are, and dying rapidly, just screams "lack of creativity" when making humour or expressing ideas.

Sooooooooooooooo today I had an interesting experience, one that... let's just say will make an impression on me for as long as i live. I don't want to dump it straight in your face, so i'll put it in Hide mode.

So i was driving to teach a class today, and i get onto the freeway. The traffic then slows to a crawl and i was like "ah man, i wonder if it's an accident or something?"

i look up the freeway a bit and see the flashing lights, so i was right. That's when i realize that there was literally no cars coming the other direction. So that made me really curious.

I get closer and i see a bunch of cop cars, a group of them talking to the side. I see a semi that is just sitting there. and i see one of the cop cars by the side of the road

and underneath i see a guy laying on the ground. and around him was the little markers they use for crime scenes and stuff. and this is when i realize

"oh god. i think that man is dead!"

so yeah... i saw a dead body today. i learned later on the news that he was a pedestrian and the semi truck that was there hit him, and he died on impact most likely.

i heard, one of the bad shooters in the news lately, may have been a my little pony fan.

the fedex shooter person... apparently, he wrote on facebook before the attack, that:

"I hope I can be with applejack in the afterlife, my life has no meaning without her"

The New York Post, which is... a tabloid newspaper, even reported that "bronies" are a group with far right tendencies. And the New York Post is, already, a very, very right leaning institution, which wouldn't say that casually.

i never liked the term "bronies." i like to think, i like ponies, and do not wish to be associated with bronies.

i am scared that everyone thinks of us as really bad things.

Is it really a hard concept to get across that like, okay, if somebody goes "I could never date a black person" or "I could never be friends with a Jew" or whatever that in the eyes of me and a lot of people that's a problem? That even though it's a personal dislike, that personal dislikes have real consequences in terms of general social attitudes? I don't think it's that difficult.

I understand that's not a problem to a lot of other people.

Disagreement is understandable. After all, quite a lot of people throughout most of American history believed that a business could turn down somebody due to their religion, race, sexual orientation, or whatever and that such a thing didn't actually count as prejudice because it was just a personal preference. The boss liked to associate with certain customers in a club-like kind of atmosphere, and that was what happened. Now, though, a lot of people's attitudes have changed.

Back in the day, criticism of such business actions made you into a "busybody", made you "pretentious", and so on. Made you a left-wing extremist. But times changed.

This is all really /townhall/ though, so I seriously should stop here.

When you get a large enough community, there will always be a certain amount of bad actors within it. This is a statistical certainty. I simply don't see how the actions of this one, very clearly deranged person is reflective of the brony community as a whole.
