I know you crazy tails are there.
Whats the craziest mental thing you've done lately?

I think that's what this community needs, more Q&A!
We're all mental so don be shy mon!

What did I do recently... ahhmmm.. well typically the only trouble I get myself into is sometimes thinking someone hates me based on very little evidence and then I sort of feel resentment build up in me without even confirming it, and then I aggro at them the next time they pop up, and usually just profoundly confuse them XD I'm starting to realize how to control this paranoia tho. I should be OK with people not liking me in the first place, I realistically can't expect otherwise.

I think the root cause is that I don't really like them in the first place.. but I'm such a nice guy I go blindly forward with talking to them, hoping it'll work out.

Dead community?

hello community! hopefully the activirty picks up in here usually I just post to panic_anxiety if anyone was wondering of a good place to post shit

hey there are other furs there too, that and cuttersselfharm

Anyway helloh whats up I'm a polish fur with a nice pallet of mental differences from that of the norm

Diagnosed as generalized anxiety, bipolar type 2 hypomania, definitely NOT Sociopath but i get homicidal thoughts and images with just about everyone including friends family and co-workers.

I'm typically weary of what people think of me, i mind being disliked, envious, I panic about small bodily sensations sometimes. it's ended up in ambulance calls.

I'm not a mess all the time tho, I'll get out and have a good time with my freinds.

I suffer in silence.

I tend to over exagerate things a little bit. I'm a very nervouse person. i'm an excesive worrier and my worst trait is i act very OCD with things. I tend to become obessed aswell with people :c.

Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etc Well i love petkeeping. I have a fishtank and a tiel and i am OCD about my fish tank. The fish have to be fed twice a day or i worry they may starve. My hamster has to be fed when his food is low or when his cage is changed but thats normal. When it comes to my cats i pet them a certian way and all that. I don't actualy know if i do have OCD becuase i haven't been diagnosed. I enjoy cleaning my animal's cages and when my animals are happy i'm happy. I love to make things. Like new chars or even little hats. My nicname is Spencer but my real name is Angelica. I'm a future trans and i am a girl right now. Who is gonna be a guy one day. I act like a guy and i do guy things. I hang with the guys and the girls. I don't like girly things and i like the old cartoons like bugs bunny and woody wood pecker. I like new ones like chowder and courage the cowardly dog. My favorite animal is an eastern dragon.

Well thats pretty much it for now.

Well I got school tomorrow and I don’t know if I am ready for it :/
I have no meds and even the meds I use to have didn’t do a single thing for me. I am with disability services but I tried contacting the teachers so I could get the book info so I can get audio books from disability services.... Maybe anyone knows what I can do cause the teacher was impossible to get a hold of and now I will be attending class at a major disadvantage. On another note.... I am so emotionally screwed up right now I don’t know how long I can endure school before just going all crazy. I do not want another experience to almost get me kicked out of school again......

Name: Slash (at least among other furrs)

Age:25

If you’re a fur, what’s your species?: Arctic Fox/Kitsune

your mental disorders/issues/blessings: ADD/ADHD, depressive, and I hear things from time to time...

What brought you here? I came here after noticing one of my lj friends is in here and though I would give a try in here too.

Are you comfortable with your mental state, or do you seek to become at peace with yourself? I am fine with every bit except for depression at times

What are some interesting things we should know about you? well dunno. having my IQ test back with results of 174. Dunno how good that is though. Never really wanted to take the test in the first place but at least I have another number to remember.

What are some things we should keep in mind about your personality? hmmm I tend to hold things in for long periods. I end up going silent for a while. Usually I am very bouncy and cheerful but when I am silent I tend to show my dark side shortly. It seems I cannot control when this happens and what I do and most the time I have no idea what I do.

Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etc I am very hyper and hard to get any patience. I like photography though lots of times it gets frustrating do to having to wait on some things. I have 3 cats and a dog. Two tabies one silver one orange and one mixed cat and a yellow lab. I dunno what to really say about myself so if you have questions I am usually open.
* * *
figured i would post this here, it seems on topic at least for once. i don't know what the label for this is, i guess maybe social anxiety or avoidant personality. as much as i'd like to have real life furry friends, i can't seem to be able to deal with it.

the big thing of it is, i'm supposed to be spending my vacation with this kitty in kansas. i really REALLY want to meet, and hang out with him. i just don't think i can. even though he's an "alternative" type person, he's nowhere near being the freakshow that i am. popular, good looking,surrounded by friends and mates. all of the things that i'm unable to be.

since my split with my ex-mate, things for me have gown downhill fast. my physical looks and health, as well as my "sanity". i find myself unable to have a conversation with anyone, and it's difficult for me to go out in public. just walking into a store starts this shaking inside. when i'm around people that i don't know, or alot of people, i do everything i can to get away as fast as possible.

so i was curious if anyone else have dealt with this before. i'd like to at least find a way to be with this kitty, and enjoy my time with him. i've not been around another fur in over a year (except one quick, depressing meet), and of course i've has no physical contact with anyone for as long. so i'd really appreciate any advice on how to fix this, or at least not feel it long enough to take this trip.

if this is'nt appropriate i'm sorry. did'nt know where else i could post it.

Name: usually called by simply "pup", though a.k.a many others.
Age: true age 25, mentally and "fursona" wise much, much younger.
If you're a fur, what's your species?: siberian huskie/artic wolf
your mental disorders/issues/blessings: clinical "major" depression, post traumatic stress disorder, personality disorder
What brought you here?: hmm. there's nowhere else for me to be. i don't fit in any other comms, and usually don't even bother trying. i also know someone in thr group. though i just realized it.
Are you comfortable with your mental state, or do you seek to become at peace with yourself?: i would'nt say i'm comfortable with it, but there's nothing to be done about it. meds,therapists and i don't get along.
What are some interesting things we should know about you?:i don't have any irl friends to talk to. so i usually just post on lj and zone out for periods of time. i'll post more here if it's ok.
What are some things we should keep in mind about your personality?i'm pretty fucked in the head. i want nothing more then friends,mates and a normal existence. though, i also am intent on not having any of them. i live a solitary existence and i hate it, though i see no chance of being able to coexist with someone else. i can barely speak to anyone for 5 minutes without trying to get away.
Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etc: usually i spend my time watching dvd's, gaming on my ps2 and pc. i like to smoke the herb, and self medicate myself as often as possible. i have two fish, both jack demspey's in their own homes. i also have a black cat named midnight, she got green eyes and is outdoors.
to get right down to the point, i say and do what i feel inside. i am also pretty loaded right now, so this probably won't make alot of sense. i have another lj also, which isn't updated anymore. it was used mostly for venting and rambling on and it is there if anyone wants a read at ihaveanumber

oh and a special thanks to lougara for making this comm. it really does need to be here.

I'm trying to hold it together. I work. I chat. I sleep.

Eating seems pretty... minor. I barely eat right now. I don't mean to, but I don't remember to.

Yet, everyone wants me. Friends, love, sex, whatever.

And I don't even want myself.

Does this make sense to anyone?

Name: Tillie, yo!
Age: 20
If you're a fur, what's your species?: Grey house-cat.
Your mental disorders/issues/blessings: OCD, scizophrenic, anxiety... actually, you ever see that show, Monk? I'm not QUITE that bad. The scizophrenic side of me hallucinates D:
What brought you here?: RACHEL KITTY
Are you comfortable with your mental state, or do you seek to become at peace with yourself?: Pretty chill, actually.
What are some interesting things we should know about you?: Oh GOD. Victim of repeated incest, mother abuses drugs, was bullied in school (by "bullied" I mean stripped and beaten and humiliated)... If anyone has been through anything simular and wants to talk, I'm really not shy about it.
What are some things we should keep in mind about your personality?: I have a hormone imbalance, so even though I may not be bipolar, I can sometimes mimic one well. People that don't know me well think I'm a junkie, because one day I won't be able to stay awake, one day I won't be able to stop crying, one day I will be SPAZZING OUT because I'm so happy... I'm been known to be in a good mood at inoppertune times, too D:
Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etc:
Hobbies: biology, psychology, anthropology, herpetology, zoologuy, botony, study of mold and fungus (WHATEVER THAT IS), drawing (sorta, sooooo lazy about it), origami, macreme, cooking, EATING, and pehaps most of all, dreaming. I'm often chasing a dream or two. I'm actually clinically genius, although you have to REALLY get to know me before you can tell. It's not really something I brag about, because then people will come to expect it from me. I'm the biggest airhead ever, but I have a photographic memory. If the reading isn't too far over my head, I only have to glace at the page to soak it in. I read when I'm nervous, which is alot. Ever since I COULD read, I was fascinated by food ingredients and nutrition information. I'm kindof a spaz. I loooooooooooooove cartoons and b-movies.
Pets: I have a cat named Pooty that is my baby. That's one spoiled cat.
Phobias: embryos, fetuses, pregnant women, hot oil, loud noises, everyone leaving me, sleeping alone, aye-ayes, dolphins, BIRTH DEFECTS... alot more I'm sure. I'm hysterically phobic of much of these, but some loud noise I can handle, and I can deal with hot oil enough to cook fries, but dkhgrkghrhgrhgrhghgurhgrhgkrwhglwhgl

Name: Well, my given name is Aryn. My artist's alias is Zorra (as in "female fox". Hehe.) and I still have yet to find a suitable name for my fursona.
Age: Physically 17. Mentally? About 25-30, despite how I seem online. I am much more composed and mature in person-although people can't understand that, and judge me by what they see in my journal.
If you're a fur, what's your species?: Gray fox, mostly. Shapeshifter, but I prefer not to shift, usually.
your mental disorders/issues/blessings:ADD, manic-depression, bipolar,clinical level anxiety, type two depression, direct defiance disorder,borderline personality disorder,possibly mild schizophrenia
What brought you here? Lougara.:3
Are you comfortable with your mental state, or do you seek to become at peace with yourself? I would be comfortable with myself, if I completely left the internet. I am appreciated and respected by mature individuals, and people who share fairly similar interests in real life- on the internet, my mild schizophrenia, and split personality becomes affective- and I manage to fuck up what relationships and friendships I create. I wish people would take the time to get to know me in person, and not give up so easily. I do not give up on friendships, unless they are deserving of it. And I am a highly forgiving individual- I wish others were the same.
What are some interesting things we should know about you? I am exceedingly monogamous. I am fairly scientific in my beliefs about how things work, and what is and isn't possible. I take time to research things I do not agree with at first. I take time to research EVERYTHING. I am obsessed with history. I love renaissance faires. I love LARPing. I actually hate most of the pointless stuff on the internet. I have the insane ability to sense the character of a person after a while of knowing them in person. I have the great ability to give flawless advice; only no one listens. I am actually fairly adrogynouos, but I'm pissed because I have breasts that are impossible to hide...;D I am pansexual;gender is superfluous to me in who I love. I am currently mated to a non-fur. Umm umm, I can read and write Hebrew, and I can speak Spanish(almost fluently) and English. Erm...I am a musical genious, and I could have been a child prodigy if I'd stuck with it. I have an IQ of around 160. Errr... I'm good at writing convincing essays. I hate polyamory, but I DO NOT hate polyamorists (understand this; I do not hate you or think less of you because you do something I hate. I just tend to bitch about it anyway.). ERr..Yeah. There's lots more, but I'm too lazy.
What are some things we should keep in mind about your personality? Online, I have a split personality. I am completely ruled by emotion, and I am extremely hypersensitive- but....I can go into a state of mind where I become highly critical, and self-righteous if I feel threatened. I tend to feel threatened when the majority of people I know and respect feel as if something is right when I feel that it is WRONG. So I lash out. I can generalize pretty bad, and seem fairly hateful in what I post in my livejournal, but in fact, it's my subconscious, and it's the other side of my personality that takes things to the extreme. I have a hard time NOT seeing everything in black and white, and I go into a state of delirium when I attempt to post things onto the internet, generally.I am a very aural person, ergo, I have trouble focusing on reading and writing, and things come out REALLY wrong. I think that a lot of the people who have given up on me as a friend should read "driven to distraction" and the second book by him....It explains my thought process pretty well, and gives a MUCH better understanding of people with severe ADD....
Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etc Hmmm....I don't really have time right now...So I'll give the short one. I'm a teenager, living in california with my family still- planning to move out after highschool, which I am struggling through because I'm doing it without an IP at a college prep school. I enjoy ALL of the arts; drawing, writing, singing, dancing, sculpting, crafting, costuming, acting...You name it. I am pretty much an anachronism. I should have been born much earlier. I'm fairly traditional, and fairly rational and logical, generally. I am an idealist realist. Hehe. As far as spirituality goes, I'm not very religious BUT I am fairly spiritual, and believe in the supernatural. But I do not believe in humans becoming supernatural generally, until after death. I do not believe in heaven or hell, in the christian sense. I believe in the three fold blessing. Ummm... I'm native american/spanish/mexican/italian/irish, 5'5", 125 lbs, thin, large breasts, olive skin, grey eyes with a gold inner circle that appear green, I dress..Eh. However I want to. Ummm.... I have mediumish reddish brown hair- my natural color for once. Err...I'll post pics latah. I plan on going to art school. I'm not very well-off as far as money goes, and I was adopted, so I have a HUGE HUGE HUGE rejection complex, and self hatred complex from that I am TRYING to work on right now. Err...and stuff. I have a dog and a rabbit, and I am extremely lonely, and would love a few more friends who would stick by me.

What brought you here? Random browsing of my friends' page
Are you comfortable with your mental state, or do you seek to become at peace with yourself?Not really sure at this point, actually.
What are some interesting things we should know about you? I'm very touchy. VERY touchy. I'm very self concious also. And I can't keep my mind on too many things at once. Very short attention span. I take a lot of things to heart and more often than not, over react drastically. And I talk to myself. A lot. Even when other people are around.
What are some things we should keep in mind about your personality?How about..eveything that was said up there?
Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etcI live in Walker, Louisiana and have a boyfriend named Bo. He is my main hobby right now. =D I'm also a graphics design artist for In-kog-nito kustoms. I have one cat named Snookie. She's my heart ^^. The nickname "Wire Fox" came from Junior high actually. Everyone kept saying I was really wiry (personality wise) and hyper. So Wire just kind of stuck. Someone randomly threw Fox on the end as a last name, so now it's Wire Fox.

Are you comfortable with your mental state, or do you seek to become at peace with yourself?
Right now, no. I'm in the middle of a huge med change, and it's... for lack of a better word, very bad this time. Dish throwing, suicidal ideations, just general badness.
What are some interesting things we should know about you?
My dad is bipolar and doesn't take meds, my brother is bipolar and doesn't take meds, I'm bipolar and do take meds. I've been in a psych ward twice. I've had three open heart surgeries, six or seven caths (one was a week and a half ago), and I think that my psych stuff is tied into genetics and the massive amout of anestesia that I've been under. Oh, and I can touch my tounge to my nose!
What are some things we should keep in mind about your personality? That even the slightest bit of critisisim, no matter how much I need it, hurts me pretty badly. Even if I have good reaso for doing what I feel I need to do.
Give us a little bio, let us know more about yourself-hobbies, pets, nicknames, etc.
I'm in the SCA - I sew, watch my boyfriend-type-thing fight, learn about historical cooking and herbalism, and even get to wear a tail and ears when I dress up. I've got a gecko named Aurora, who's so cute and sweet. I go by Rachel, Rachel-kitty, Kitten, and will eventually have my own historical name to use too. I work for Victoria's Secret for the time being, and am looking for a front desk job that will let me have piercings and tattoos, mostly because I love having needles in my body.
