But simply downvoting because you disagree is silly. The Pandas get minus 10 and suspended for nothing. Let’s be nice. If you’re a VBP (Very Bored Panda) then scroll and give others an uppie!

This will get buried

I am a minor (this will help you understand)

My friend was acting weird and then later asked me out, I said yes because they are manipulative and would of hurt me if I said no, and knowing I have autism, still asked me to kiss them after I said my brain stopped me from doing things like that. She later got mad at me for not looking at her. I’m still dating her but I hate it to the point I’m scared to hang out alone with her, as she might do something (she is 13 and had same gender sex but told me all about it 😖). Soon after I trusted her again and accidentally put my self harm scissors in my bag, which she looked through and stole them and wouldn’t give them back until I shouted at her (the next day) and they were broken. I am too scared to break up with her

I don’t feel right, I like being biologically female but it feels odd and I hate having pronouns or a name (it’s not my name that’s the problem, I could have any name and it would be the same). I use they/them and that feels better, but no one seems to care

I go through things where I am either overexcited or having suicidal thoughts and I feel like nobody likes me, or knows me and I’m crying while typing this because nobody cares and I’ll get in trouble for telling people these things because “nothing bad has happened so you are faking for attention”


Sorry you had to read that
Nobody else knows any of this but I feel a bit better getting it off my chest

First of all,you are worth a lot more than you could possibly imagine. Secondly, does anyone know how you feel about being addressed by "they/them"? For example,your parents or adults that care about your well-being... You should speak to them about how you feel. You are not wrong for feeling how you do,your opinions and preferences are valid❤️ And as to the "friend", ditch her. I know it's easier said than done,but you need to start setting boundaries with her until you can fully dissociate yourself from her. From a fellow autistic, sometimes depressed potato, I'm telling you this....you are perfectly fine, I care about you. I'm sure a whole lot of people care too. If you need someone to talk to,you can create a post for that and get people to reach out to you through there(just to be safe).

Why did this person get downvoted? I brought it back to zero, but they're honestly posting something they're struggling with! Currently, the number one post is about not downvoting someone just because you don't agree with them, for goodness sakes! Unless there's something about the post I'm not understanding because I'm old and sometimes clueless, downvoting a real problem is awfully mean.

Ok, here goes. As a gay man, I think today's kids have way too much stuff being thrown at them regarding sexuality. Even reading the few posts on here pertaining to it confirm what I feel.

Adolescence is a super confusing time where people experience all kinds of feelings and emotions. While I'm all about acceptance, obviously, I think a lot of kids are being pushed into something they may not actually be. I also think that to be bi, pan, etc., is the trendy thing to be. I think a lot of kids are saying they're these things to fit in or look cool to their peers.

Obviously, I'm not saying everyone who thinks they're one of these things is wrong. I knew I was gay for sure when I was about 13 and realized I liked m**turbating to pictures of guys. But I sincerely think a lot of young people are trying so hard to figure themselves out, that they're possibly trying to force things onto themselves that may not actually be true.

Of course people are going to experiment, and that's great. I'm all for it. But a lot of kids are making declarations of I'm this, or I'm that, when they don't really know.

I invite intelligent thoughts on the matter. But let's keep them civil and productive. Love you Pandas. 😘

Totally agree with you on this, I particularly dislike how media overhypes this subject and can see lot of people feeling pressured to be "something". Being in your formative years is very stressful and yes, sexuality plays a huge role, still I wish teenagers could take a step back sometimes and realise it's okay to be/not to be something and they have another 60 years to figure things out or even change their minds.

I feel like the Democratic Party has been really crappy lately, but since the Republican Party decided to be fascist and everything, the Democratic Party is by far the one to vote for, and its wrongdoings are nothing in comparison, but still, the worse the Republicans get, the more the Democrats use it as an excuse for their crappiness, and voting Democrat kind of feels like voting in a one-party system since voting Republican was never even remotely an option.

Telling someone who says they don't want kids that they'll change their minds is INFURIATING and ENRAGING. It's condescending, patronizing, and it treats them as if they don't know their own mind. It takes away all agency. Just say OK and keep all opinions and arguments to yourself, please. And whatever you do, please don't do that BUT WHYYYYY thing? You're not asking to understand; you're asking to start an argument where you undermine another person's reasons. "I just don't want to" is a reason.

I was in that 2% once, when pills didn't work. In my early 20's, I was pregnant without knowing it till the labor-pains started. Yes, I had my periods till the 9th month. No, I didn't notice any strange-moves-in-my-belly. Yes, I gained some weight, but just about 5-6 kg, didn't make me suspicious. Yes, I was on pills. I went to my house-doc with very bad cramps, only to find out, I'm in labor. In hospital, they told me, he -yes, was a boy- was born already dead. But I'm till now not sure, because I remember hearing some weak crying voice. But, maybe, just my imagination played me.

I grew up with drunk parents. I remember when I was about 4 years old being used as a human shield, my drunken father deciding he wants to cut my mother's ring finger off while driving, drunk, extremely fast.... Dozens of different violent occurrences. Thankfully nothing sexual.

I have been diagnosed with ASPD, Sociopathy in other words. Been married for 14 years have 2 children, 13 year old daughter and my son is about to turn 8. Turns out that along with ASPD I was at a greater risk of, you guessed it, drug abuse.

Long story short I had to complete drug classes to get my kids back. Completed the class but didn't get the kids back because we couldn't make enough money in California to get a place and escape homelessness. But, thanks to those classes, at the age of 32 I finally know what it feels like to have genuine emotions.

I'm now 34 and no one knows of my diagnosis. Wife, parents, kids. I hate this s**t. I have no one to talk to. I've never had to deal with regret.... Now I'm not only trying to figure out how to deal with losing the kids to my parents, but my wife cheated shortly after we got back to N.C with the only "friend" I thought I had.

We worked things out though. The wife, not the douche canoe. I made it pretty clear when I beat the everliving c**p out of him that I better never see him again. Baby steps right? Now, like when I was a kid, I'm alone. Not looking for sympathy. Just needed that gone so I don't slip back into old habits. Thanks to anyone that actually reads this. 🤫

I am a ghost.
I died in my sleep last December 13.
Well not really, but almost!
my wife and adult kids had to revive me and called fire-rescue, and perform CPR. I spent the next day in the ER

I am feeling some guilt about them having to be the ones to see me like that.

Cause : hypoglycemia (super low blood sugar) from accidental insulin overdose as I was learning my dosing (diabetes type 2)

As a ghost, some of the hardest things to use are touchscreen on my phone and the automatic doors at the supermarket and Target

my son hates that I joke and make light of the subject, but it is how I cope

P.s. I think that the Pixar movie "Soul" really captured that aspect of "non-being then coming back to consciousness" closely

I'm struggling to find in-person friends and a summer job (I'm a college student). Everyone always says you'll find your people at college, and I haven't. My job let me go because business was too slow, and I was making friends there, and, long story short, they either decided not to contact me or didn't realize that I gave them my contact info on the work chat. It's also hard for me to find friends because I'm not really into a lot of the pop culture stuff, so I don't get a decent amount of references, and I'm not at the point with my driving to where I can comfortably drive by myself. Basically, I'm lonely, kinda stuck, and talking online to someone or having to start a friendship from the ground up can be mentally exhausting. It's sucks, too, hearing how some of my old friends are in relationships and yet I've never been in one. :(

asexual doesn’t mean they don’t date unless they’re also aromantic - as long as you accept that they have boundaries, you can still have a great romantic relationship!

Therapy and many wonder drugs nowadays. Though AA is likely best as it will teach you to tell others so they don't accidentally put you in awkward drinking situations.

I think I have a small crush on a fictional character! I'm way too embarrassed to say who, and I know it's stupid, however, I feel like I've been burying it down for too long now!

My first crush was on Mr. Spock, way back in the 1970s! Many years later I wrote a romantic fanfiction about him and posted it on a fanfic website. That started a whole new love of writing fiction. Crushes can be great motivators or tools for self-exploration.

I say this knowing good and well I’m going to sound like a complete a*****e, and I totally deserve it, but, whenever I make friends, as I learn more about them, if I find out they went through something traumatic in the past, or have harder living circumstances than I do, or have it worse than me in any way, I end up distancing myself from them. I don’t do it consciously, but it always seems to happen. I guess I’m scared of sounding spoiled or entitled, because I feel like you should be able to vent to a friend, but I’m scared if I complain that it’ll sound like I don’t care about what they went through, even though none of them have ever actually said anything that implied they’d take it that way. My brain just kinda made that up and refuses to let me not think that way. I would never do anything like that on purpose, I don’t think of them as “less” than me, I’ve always seen them as equals, but I don’t know how to stop doing it. Sorry. *emoji*

In the end, all pain stands alone. If you vent about something and they bring up their trauma that is totally unrelated, that is something they need to deal with themselves. Saying "someone has it worse" is emotionally dismissive and teaches you that your struggles are insignificant. That's not true. Your emotions are valid. I do think friends sometimes need to give us a gentle reminder if we are making a huge deal out of something that isn't ("Uh, Sage? That purse being out of stock in the color you wanted was sad, but it's been three months. Is it worth still crying over?", etc). That doesn't mean friends shouldn't validate your feelings. I'm sorry your subconscious is distancing from you from what could be some cool folks. You might give them a chance. While you can offer friendship and a listening ear, you don't need to feel guilty because you haven't the same negative experiences as them.

The other night I couldn’t sleep. I think it was just stress from everything going on right now in the US. So I was up at 4am, just walking around quietly, cause what else do you do at night with a houseful of people? That night, like I said, I was stressed and in a bad mental state, I had cried at midnight and again right after I was up walking. Anyways the part I need to get off my chest: when I was up walking, I was dissociating, like a lot. I’m not kidding when I say it felt like I was walking around in VR, like I could’ve reached out and swiped my hand through the couch. And I dissociate a lot, it was just really bad that night. Sometimes I wonder if that’s normal, if everyone feels disconnected from their own body and what’s going on around them and it’s just something we need to talk about more, or if there’s genuinely something wrong with me. Anyways *emoji* (cause I doubt it’ll actually show the emoji if I put one)

I resent my mother for selling the house I grew up in, built a new house that I can't sell if she passes over me for reasons too complicated to explain, and BRAGGING to me that unless I want to move back to Alaska and live among relatives I strongly dislike, I'm not going to have an inheritance. I mostly resent her because I have never ONCE asked her about what I gain from her death and was willing to let her do what she feels she needs to do, but she keeps bringing it up. But she gets more than a little angry when I tell her I don't intend to outlive her so she's wasting her breath. 😒

She sounds like she’s becoming mentally altered. My family had to deal with this too. For the longest time they just did maddening things that wouldn’t necessarily be indicative of a mental decline, but now looking back we see that it started way earlier than any of us understood. Do you know if she has waived her HIPPA rights (she would have to sign a form giving her physician the right to discuss her medical issues with a designated individual) It sounds like she’s put the house in a trust of some kind. You should make sure she has designated someone as her Healthcare Proxy, and has a Durable Power of Attorney set up as well. (even if it isn’t you) Good luck

This is my first time posting anything on here, so here goes. I am 12 and I just got out of 6th grade and my grades were dropping. My sister went to the same school so I feel like I have to do just as good as she did but she’s always been better at school than me. I feel like my parents are gonna punish me for not getting good grades and the school doesn’t want to accommodate for my autism and ADHD. My brother and two of my friends are LGBTQ and I’m constantly worried that someone’s going to try to attack them for it. I don’t think I’m straight, but I do t no what the f**k my sexuality is so I’m worrying about that. My other friend recently had surgery on her leg and I’m worried she’s going to accidentally damage it permanently. Two of my friends live in Europe so I’m worried about them because of the war. Speaking of which, I hate what Putin is doing in Ukraine but I can’t do anything to help. I hate the way my country is going downhill (I’m American, just an FYI) and I’m worried that if things get much worse my mom is gonna move is out of the country somehow. Speaking of my family I’m also kinda hurt that my dad didn’t want me at first. Mom wanted three kids but dad wanted two. I think you can guess what number I am. I am also depressed and I have had suicidal thoughts. I actually planned out a way to kill myself and I have cut myself before, but I didn’t cut myself because I was suicidal. I did it because I got angry at myself for getting so angry at my mom for not letting me use the bathroom because I was covered with dirt and sweat from working outside. My dog who I’ve had since I was 3 I believe is on her last legs and I never really got over the death of my favorite cat. My sister also loves stealing my notebooks where I write down what my imagination comes up with, which I prefer to keep to myself since I’m self conscious about it and my sister knows that. I’m always tired and my self esteem is almost non existent. I’m sorry you had to read that, since my problems shouldn’t impact you but I really needed to get that off my chest. I don’t really have a right to post this since other people on here have actual problems unlike mine. Go ahead and downvote me. Criticize me. I don’t care. I already hate myself more than almost anyone. Nothings going to change if you insult me. I’ll survive. But thank you for reading.😔

Don't put yourself down. You most certainly DO have a right to post here. That's what the thread is for. 1. Does the school know you have autism/ADHD? Make sure they know. 2. I'm pretty sure your parents won't punish you if your grades aren't as good as your sister - As long as you do your best. 3. You're 12 going on 13 so your sexuality will reveal itself in time. For now I suggest you let that evolve. 4. I find it really sweet that you worry about your friend - just be there for her. 5. hurting yourself is never good. Can you find someone to talk to about this? 6. I hope your dog is fine, losing an animal you love sucks. 7. Steal something precious of your sister - see how she likes that! 8. You are a lovely person. Accept who you are, love yourself. 9. A Hug from me :)

I am an introvert. I love my own company.

I am also living with my bf and our 3 daughters.

On a daily basis I daydream about being alone again. Even just for a week or so.

I do love my kids to bits and pieces and with every fiber of my being. But I miss my own time so much and I think this may be part of the reason my memory is so bad, my stress is up, I studder pretty often, forget words, and need systems and planning in order to function just fairly normally.

I look forward to when the kids leave home.

My oldest turned 5 years old today 😬 (I am so happy and proud for her, though. Her eyes shined like rivers of gold all day because she was so excited about everything that happened today).

There is nothing wrong with desiring a solo vacation, or even a staycation when everyone else goes on vacation and you get time alone. I think most of the world after the past two years needs a break to be alone. If you are struggling with executive function, you might consult a physician or a councilor as it may be a sign you need some changes. Aside from what your physician suggests, you might consider weekly "alone time". Perhaps you and your bf could take turns taking the kids to a park while the other stays home, or watching the kids while the other parent goes somewhere to get some alone time, like a coffee shop or a park bench. Wanting some alone time doesn't mean you are less of a parent, you are still a human.

I don't want to work. I have no real ambition for a career. This idea you must "be someone and make tons of money" feels like it's been programmed into our heads since elementary school. Most of us will manage to be well-off enough to live comfortably in a little home. Many will struggle to earn a decent living and be stuck at a job they loath because... money. I don't want to interact with people everyday, but I must to get my art out there.

This might be a lot, so be prepared.
I’m only 11, but I have a lot going on. So, I’m in a friend group of 3. We’re in the break between elementary and middle school. I’m not going to school with either of them next yr. The male, Jude, it’s hid middle name, I’m in love with. He dosent know. The female, Juliet, well, I’ll get to that later. So Jude’s parents are getting divorced, and he is moving in with his dad. He therefore, will be going to a diff school then everyone thinks, he has only told me any of this. (Originally he was going to School with Juliet.) I’m going to a private school. He and Juliet are in a fight. We communicate through roblox, but Juliet and jude have unfriended each other. So me and jude are pranking Juliet by me telling her that he hasn’t been online in like a month. Therefore, when she goes to school and he’s not there, it will be ‘confirmed’ that he’s dead. And for some reason, I don’t feel guilty at all. Should I? Also, Jude is going to go to school with a girl who has a crush on him that we knew previously. Which she told me that she liked him and told me not to tell him. But I did, I feel guilty. And he knows that she will be going to that school.
Next, I think I’m bi and have only told Juliet, but I told her over roblox even though we can text whenever we want. The problem is that a: I’m only pretty sure, but even if I knew then I wouldn’t tell anyone else. B: when I told her, she left the game. Then joined me later and acted like nothing had happened.
Next, I’m always called super smart and intelligent, and etc by everyone. But I’m pretty sure I’m Juliet and jude are actually smarter than me even though they always say that I’m smarter. Also, Jude always says that he’s stupid, but he’s actually rlly smart (I’m not just saying that cause I’m in love with him)
I’m actually rlly depressed, but I don’t tell anyone bc then they’ll say I’m just faking for the attention.
Juliet broke her arm, but for some reason, I’m don’t feel sorry for her.
I write stories, and have won several contests, but I don’t think I’m actually good at it.
I’m Srry for my rant, but thanks for reading!

I don’t know if this DPC was started by my obsession with Disney movies or my (maybe it’s still getting diagnosed) ADHD/maybe more or by my parents teasing. The worst part is I’m starting to see me in my little sister who’s going into 1st grade as in she’s chasing down boys her age and calling them her boyfriend (they’re not I’ve had a little boy come crying to me) and getting all over them. It’s reminded me so much of myself I’ve started a subconscious hatred of that side of her and I hate myself for hating that valuable sweet young girl, it tears me apart.
Ugh honestly the worst part is how I know and have to live with the fact I’ll never have a first time for virtually anyone romantically or sexually and also the fact that I stole many young boys’ first kisses but I’m glad we moved so they never have to face me the person who took that important memory from them ever again.

I’m pansexual, but my parents don’t know. Siblings and a couple others do though.

This one is kinda weird/embarrassing… each night I wait for my parents to fall asleep. Then spend most of the night reading fan fiction. Not the sexual ones though THOSE ARE WEIRD!

Sometimes I pretend to be a character from a video game or move or tv show that I like. Then basically a fanfic in my head while kinda acting it out. I’m weird.

I promised my siblings that I’ll get therapy in high school due to our mother but secretly I feel like I can’t trust a therapist to not tell my mom anything. I’m paranoid that my mom will find out anything I say about her and will punish me…
