Anonymous said: I am talking to a person with schizophrenia and depression, and at this point, they won't even talk to me because they're having an episode where they are emotionless and won't talk. I really like them, but this is hard. What do I do :/
I got two very similar questions (maybe from the same person?).
I don’t have very much personal experience with schizophrenia but the first thing I would advise is to educate yourself. Education leads to understanding, understanding will help you to help him.
- Schizophrenia: What’s in my head?
- Help Guide
- Symptoms of Schizophrenia
- Types of Schizophrenia
- Causes of Schizophrenia
- Living with Schizophrenia
- Coping With Schizophrenia
- Schizophrenia Coping and Recovery
- Schizophrenia: Coping with Delusions and Hallucinations
- Paranoid schizophrenia Coping and support
- An Introduction to the Treatment of Schizophrenia
- Treatment of Schizophrenia
- Drugs to Treat Schizophrenia
- Common Drugs and Medications to Treat Schizophrenia
- Treating Schizophrenia Successfully
The next thing you can do is just to be there. Be there for him, be ready to listen. However, if things go south make sure to take care of yourself and call emergency services if necessary. Here are some pages written by professionals on how you can more specifically support him.
- Ways to Support Self-Care for Someone With Schizophrenia
- Helping a Loved One with Schizophrenia
- Tips for Helping People who have Schizophrenia
I hope you find something helpful here and I hope things workout for you two!
Anonymous said: I am a gay trans guy bottom. I only want to have sex with guys with a penis that gets hard on it's own and ejaculates semen, it's almost a fetish- I need that kind of penis in order to get turned on. I'm planning on having Phallo on the NHS next year so this isn't about hating on a trans guys penis. I really don't like myself for feeling like this but it feels kind of set in stone. What are your thoughts? (could give more info on what it is I like about them but didn't want to give you tmi)
Preferences exist, for better or for worse. A hypothetical gay guy whose top fantasy was bukkake, and absolutely loved ejaculation, just isn’t going to do well with a trans man. A hypothetical gay guy who wanted a lot of anal (without toys) just isn’t going to do well with a trans man who’s had metoidioplasty.
I don’t think you should be judging yourself so hard. Preferences exist. You didn’t choose them; all you do is work with your preferences to give yourself the happiest love life you could have.
The fact is that the penises from metoidioplasty or phalloplasty are different from non-surgical penises. Everyone’s opinions on this seems to be over on either extreme - either the surgeries are terrible (they’re not), or surgical penises hold near perfect resemblance (they don’t).
You can easily hold more reasonable middle ground - there are differences in surgical penises, both aesthetically and functionally, but this does not mean that they are terrible procedures (as you say, you’re not hating on them). But you’re also not in denial about the existence of those differences. You hold a strong preference to non-surgical penises. In my opinion, there is nothing for you to feel apologetic about. That’s fine.
Saying “you must not want equality since you’re not a feminist” is the equivalent of saying “you must not have morals since you aren’t a Christian”
i cant even make it past the table of contents im laughing too hard
