How am I the last one to know about Pokemon Red in minecraft everyone already knows about this.

I'm all WTF'd out man.

I didn't know, but I'm not surprised.

I'm going to name my Jolteon after you, SMJ.

Also not something that can be easily or accurately self-diagnosed. Talk to a pro, let them make an evaluation. It's hilariously easy to find mental conditions that "match exactly" what you're going through, only to find out that those words in the article mean something completely different to a trained professional.

And even on the off-chance that is what you're going through, that's definitely not a diagnosis that's going to get better by itself. It helps to get help.

Yes. I know. Unfortunately, last time I tried to talk to a doctor I immediately went into people pleaser mode and just said the meds were great even though there have been side effects and I'm not taking them properly. And my wife is just stressing me out. Anytime I bring it up its go to a doctor and I shut down emotionally and just agree even though I don't want to go. I just fucking don't. And I think I don't want to because I'm afraid and suppressing it. I don't know.

If you're comfortable with the idea of consulting a doctor, write everything out ahead of time and hand it to them when you get there. This could bypass your people-pleaser instinct.

I actually know exactly what you mean. I went to a doctor about potential BLPD and it took me about five minutes to say “what’s with all the questions?”
Trust issues are a potential symptom, but in my case it turns out i’m just a skeptical, emotionally stunted dude.
Can’t hurt to just go in, say what happened recently and try to answer the questions as they come.

Depending on where you are, a doctor’s visit is cocking expensive. Being told something is wrong is even more expensive.

Funny thing, I asked my therapist on time why she reckoned people don't like going to the doctor when it won't make a difference, and in fact can only help, and the answer she gave me was pretty much "People don't like knowing something's wrong. Once they know it, they can't ignore it any more"

'Can only help'

Oh, my sides, they be splitting. Remind me to tell you sometime about the foot infection my sister's mother in law got, and the doctors put a cast on it and told her everything was fine it until the damn thing practically rotted off. I'd rather be treated by a vet than a doctor any day of the week.

Not all docs are soulless idiots who prescribe shit you don't need for conditions you don't have because it might line their pockets, but they exist.

If you need to go, you need to go, but 'can only help' is a fairy tale.

Also 'Once they know it, they can't ignore it' is another point i'd love to push back against.
I'm constantly aware of many plights which I can and should fix, and I no longer even feel like a piece of shit for not fixing them- I just don't.

I didn't know, but I'm not surprised.

At this point, I would've expected that someone had built a computer in Minecraft that played Pokémon Red.

Pokémon Redstone, to be exact.

I don't want to link to it, but I just saw a song titled "Quack like a Duck by G.O.A.T. and your M.O.M." which I'm pretty sure wins the WTF thread. You can find it yourself but Warning: Hillybilly Jesus Christ and his flapping speedo'd dong is present throughout entirety of video.

Slowbeef played Chou Aniki and Sakura Spirit at the same time (neither SFW, though not explicit either).  I fell asleep 15 minutes in despite the completely discordant music tracks, and slept soundly.

There are multiple "wut"s to be had here. One is the gravity of her crime. Another is the reason she gave for doing it.

The third is her name.

Eh, the name isn't a WTF. The scope of what she did is terrifying, though. I'm actually surprised she got off with so little punishment.

It's pretty usual fare for police forces, even if her job was to just pick up calls. A slap on the wrist and a scolding is what she got, basically.
