I love dogs. I love cats. I love birds. Animals are lovely aren't they? That's just the issue. I would certainly love to take care of any animals, but I can't. I can't bear the thought of the possibility of neclect, the possibility of them being ignored, the possibility of something happening to them, the possibility of them not being happy. I can't even think about it, it just makes me tear up. Not that I would even think about it with my dreary apartment anyway. How do others feel? I doubt this is so unusual, who knows.

I don't think you're alone. If given the choice, I would never adopt a pet because I spend so much time in front of computers that at the end of the day my pet would get little to no attention. And to be honest I don't like the idea of sharing my place with creatures that poop and pee around, and expect me to clean it. I think a pet is in a way much like a son in the sense you should only get one if you're willing to give him all the attention and dedication you can possibly have. Unfortunately a lot of people act irresponsibly and adopt pets even though they're not willing to be devoted to these animals, much like irresponsible parents will have kids even if they are poor and in a bad relationship.

This anon is too pure for this world

Your post from start to end described my feelings too. I wrote a post to make you understand that there is at least one more person like you and to offer some advice, but I couldn't really express myself and get my point across.
I'm just going to say this.

Be courageous.
The rest will come on its own.

You know what's worse than sadness?

Pure emptiness. Most people won't ever know that feeling. You need to digest the truth to feel that. Most people have the proper defense mechanisms to ignore that.

>Every time I interact with them I feel dirtied, and can't feel clean again until I've showered, so I mostly go through the day feeling ritually impure
I think I know just what you mean. I want to pull off my skin so hard every time I remind myself I am the spawn of my parents' work. My genetic code is indistinguishable from theirs and I feel like I'm no better than this local community. No better than this disgusting folk, than these streets full of trash, than this crime and barbarism. I am a part of it and have been a part of it since birth. I would like to tell myself that I am different from this repugnant whole, but the harsh truth is I'd be just another normalfag if not for autism. In a way, I'm actually much worse than these people and this place because I'm just another one of them but with a mental disease that makes me even more stupid, useless and inhumane than I would have normally been born as.

I really want to be family-focused but I can't help having the same thoughts.

Looking at my family history I can't help but feel cheated. A few generations ago we were so much better than this but now we're just rubbish.

I want to climb back up the ladder but I don't know if I can manage. Boomers got up there and pulled it up with them. And anyone seen constructing a ladder is regarded with scorn and distrust. Pieces of shit.

Slav country language skills ("runglish") being so unique to the point of it becoming a recent popular culture fad involving round country flags, displacing engrish - which is now like a racial slur.

I'm fine with it, it means slavs are white at last. Such cases.

Only for the first year or two when learning foreign language by immersion from scratch. A lot of us are into online escapism for far longer than that. Most of online prose is bottom of the barrel anyway, and the fecal molecules get stuck in our typing centers of brain or something.

Read a book, or at least a shitty asstr fanfic.

If anything, that has made things worse for me.
It has always been easy to get thoughts across, but the problem is my grammar always seems unnatural, to the point I have plenty of embarrassing memories of others asking me if I'm a Slav based on the structures I make use of. On the rare occasions I don't screw up with grammar and syntax, I spend much more time writing a comment than someone else normally would, just to make sure everything is in place and order (that would be the case with this post).
I'm not into making excuses for being dumb, but I suppose that's because most people on the internet aren't English speakers themselves, which means "learning" a language from people who can't speak it very well in the first place. And many of the native speakers make mistakes too which, deliberate or not, will be mimicked by non-speakers.

I seriously doubt this. A lot of them might have English as a second language but have been learning English from a young age.
Its selection bias. As someone from a backwater English speaking country I assume everyone online is American unless they use British colloquialisms.

Has anime (or other media) screwed with your mind and changed how you think or interact with this world?

I only recently came to a realization that tv/movies/anime has shaped how conversations between people should work in my mind, as I've never really had anyone to talk to offline and that's all I've had to go off of. I find it obnoxious when I do talk to real people, usually because they talk endlessly about pointless crap that doesn't matter, or repeat themselves in different ways a lot. In any sort of media almost everything you see and hear is there for a reason and generally has a point to it. Thanks to this I find myself expecting there to be a point when someone does talk to me offline, only to find there often isn't one. People also take a long time to get their message across, when in tv/film people are generally straight to the point. Needless to say, reality is frustrating.

It's not just anime, or TV. It's everything around us. It's all fake, an illusion built sort of like the environments we evolved in, but broken just enough to cause discomfort without quite being able to put your finger on it.

The industrial revolution was a mistake but there's no way to undo it. The hell of modernity was built brick by brick by "making life a little bit better". It lead us to a cliff and pretty soon we'll walk right off, only noticing midway through the fall that we're going to be impaled by a rock, and that it was all our own doing.

It feels horrible to go down this rabbit hole, to realize how people act like such animals. Like how words don't have any actual meaning. Works like racist, faggot, they have meanings but in common parlance they can just be taken as a showing of the teeth. And not just that but symbols... When you go out today it feels like they've all lost their meanings. People walking around with skull and crossbone in attempts to be "cute" or "cool". Even in shirts that simply exclaim "fuck you" which mean exactly what they say, until it's inconvenient at which point "have some humor man it's a joke!". All hollow and meaningless while any actual meaning is laughed at. Symbols with meaning are reserved only for the other or the hated. The only meaning today is short term pleasure to distract from the pain of living. Sort of like in No Longer Human where the protaganist joins up with a group of commies even though he doesn't really find their ideology valid. It's just so he has something to belong to, something to fight for that isn't utter nonsense. All of society seems to be headed in this direction, some of us are already there. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out. It'd be nice if we could just put the genie back in the bottle, but it can't be done. So now nature has to thrash about until she reaches some semblance, some illusion of stability again.

In a way, this, and many other sites conform to this. Think about the word "normal". Some places, on imageboards or otherwise, you hear people use "normals" to construct the idea of that which they do not like. That which stands as the opposite, the people who "don't get it" and are outside of whichever particular group/circle of the associated site/forum. The definition may vary from place to place but the concept is the same.

Take this to another level, and you'll get the people that get angry at certain types/groups of people for no other reason. To the point where they enjoy their anger.

> The only meaning today is short term pleasure to distract from the pain of living.
Lots of people use TV, anime, games, any entertainment, as an escape from reality, so they are gonna interpret such things as being more real than they are. It's only a distraction, not worth any time at all. Unfortunately, there is also habit involved in consuming such media. People can be mentally hooked on watching TV, browsing the web, or any other sort of escape. Any way to get away from the negative emotions, any way to get that short term rush. It's very hard to shake it off. This society is not one that lives its own lives.

What is reality? What isn't a distraction? What is worth any time at all?
>> No. 23005 [Edit]
Take these two ideas. First, that TV or what have you shapes opinions and thoughts projected elsewhere, which the op brings up. Second, that such things are used as a detterant from the pain or anxiety of living in the form of short term pleasure. If you put that together, it would seem that such pleasures, or distractions, are what shapes that existance.

I'm just worried how I'm going to survive the next few years. It's become obvious there is no way I can live a normal lifestyle working a 9-5, even if I wanted to I just don't have the skill. But I'm not charismatic enough to talk to a counselor and convince them to recommend me for NEETbucks. I can only hope for my parents to not mind me staying here, but their relationship is in a constant state of deterioration and it simply won't be possible at some point. So, either I become homeless, or I die. I guess I'm still scared of suicide, as appealing as it sounds to me. I'd like to be able to finish my backlog before I die, you know?

I'd assume you'd have to show that you can't function enough to hold a job, or something along those lines. I'm not sure on the process and it probably varies, but that's probably a guideline. It's called disability after all.

Ford Driver is a silly meme used around here to reference normalfags. It comes from "4rd", which was a misspelling of "4th" in a thread giving users four options and the forth being a very normalfag option.
It doesn't literally refer to the truck or driving one.

Do you guys get angry or depressed when thinking about sex? I normally do, especially when continuously exposed to pornographic material of any sort or sometimes when going out. The inexistent propects of sexual life for my are quite saddening. Does anyone else feel the same?

This was its only real use. Just breaking free of the eternal meme that everyone else on the family hammers you. ie "you're not enjoying le life" bullshit, was refreshing. Probably not at all worth the expense but considering it like this it was actually useful. Since then I've moved on and I do more stuff in my idle time instead of brooding about it constantly. But that would be blogposting, so I'll stop right now.

Honestly, the last time that I can remember that stands out, in recent memory, was when I was skipping work most days to go hang out at some local park or wander off somewhere else by myself a couple years back. It was a very peaceful time in retrospect, I could spend my time however I wanted to and I had plenty of it. To take into consideration my life before that I'd have to spend some time remembering.
>> No. 22962 [Edit]
I honestly can't answer that question. My life was always hell and I don't think I ever experienced anything so good it would make me forget it even for a moment.
