Y'know the idyllic concept of a love between two people, where one person doesn't like pickles and the other person will eat the excess pickles?

Yeah, that doesn't happen. You just order everything to be explicitly without pickles because the one person doesn't want them. Same goes for mushrooms. And fish. Basically any kind of seaweed/seafood. Dark chocolate. Olives. Corn. Beer.

Gotta say man, there's literally almost four billion other women on the planet. Just saying.

Scriver means toxic, as in 'lacking essential health foods such as kale, mushrooms, onions, fish, or dark chocolate'.

Or Beer.

Also that is a common abusive control tactic.

I don't particularly enjoy mundane mushrooms straight so hey.
I'll usually only eat them if I'm trying to seem like a fun guy,

Wrong thread, mate.

And I'd be better off even without any of them... But I'd need to find a place to live that has some semblance of privacy and that I can afford on disability, as well as round up all my shit and go through the process of moving again. Not to mention the really big issue of actually making the break and not blaming myself for absolutely everything. Hell, I don't even shower every week, because I don't have the energy for it...

Yeah, it should happen though. It is a real thing and unless she is allergic, you should not limit your food choices.
Now that we eat separate dinners it's less of a big deal, but beer (including various non-alcoholics) is firmly frowned upon (or dry-heaved upon, as the case may be) and bringing fish into the house is pretty much just a no-go unless it's exceptionally tame (e.g., the "fish" in fish and chips). She's by her own admission somewhat traumatized from too many obligatory fish dinners ordained by a domineering mother when she was growing up.

From how it appears by your postings here, though, it doesn't appear that living with her is an energy boost rather than an energy drain.

Further, it does seem like you have no privacy where you are since everything you do is frowned upon. You are in an abusive relationship. Breaking off from those is hard, but you should go through with it for your own good.

Oh, for fucks sake. He's not in an abusive relationship. He's chronically depressed, and that makes him a royal pain to live with. It's not his fault, but he's not a victim either.

I think that we can agree that the relationship is bad for him at least.

Kagus, you should discuss with your therapist.

I have and do. Basically, current focus is on trying to build me up enough to the point where I can actually get around to leaving. And attempting to take heart in "If it gets too bad, that will provide you with the motivation and energy required to leave".

And yeah, I wouldn't call this abusive. I really don't believe that she's aware of half the things she does, it's just a failure in communications and expectations for each other. And that we really just don't match each other very well, despite superficial evidence to the contrary.

I still can't get over the fact someone decided naming a Char clone Full Frontal was a good idea. Why, gundam, why.

A friend of mine is playing a mobile game.  the english version of a mobile game he has been playing in Japanese for a year now, but it got an english release so now he's 'playing' both.

I use 'playing' in quotes because for the english version he's doing nothing but rerolling, which is apparently playing to a certain point where you get a free roll on a lootbox for a character.  He tells me he is rerolling until he gets 2 specific characters from his free rerolls.  Those characters both have a 3% chance of happening.  I ran the figures using half remembered statistics math, and it comes to something like a 0.09% chance of that actually happening each reroll.  I told him this, making sure to specify that that was not 9% but less than a tenth of 1% and he's still doing it. 

So not only is he spending all his time NOT playing a game on the minuscule chance he'll get crazy lucky, he's doing it on a game he already has (and he has both those characters already in the JP version) WTF.
