    First post, not sure if I'm in the right category for this discussion, but here goes. I'm existentially depressed. My family thinks it's just a phase, or that I'm not "actually" depressed, just an existentialist. I'm 25 and finishing my first degree in nursing. I've tried, and succeeded, at...

But since quitting my job due to bullying, those rose-colored glasses have been taken off and now all I see is a world that is eventually going to end without any of our...

    At the age of six, I was molested by my brother. At the age of eight, I had sex with a dog. Through every insane event of my entire life, I have been miserable. My life has been spent in a constant state of repression. Every feeling that I have ever had has been ignored, rejected, or placed...

    Existential anxiety, guilt, the wretchedness and the nausea??? Anyone??? Meaninglessness??? What is to be done??? Or is the answer simply to be and exist and involve yourselves in productive labour (and find meaning in it)??? Is work the only solution???
  13. Eye Of The Storm

    Blog
    I've found my manta, my peaceful center. The idea upon which to found my identity and work outward from. Reality is only a simulation. Everything is basically bullshit. We love to play games, and make-believe, and pretend things matter, but they don't. Not really. It's pointless to become so...
