    In reply to: mariko posted an update I need some suggestions for comic books and also if there are any websites where to read them (since for some reason is REALLY rare to find them here) View

    I’m coming in late, but there’s a program called CBR that can process downloaded comic books. As for recommendations, I’ll advocate for Transmetropolitan, Sandman, Freakangels, Y the Last Man, and Dr. McNinja. The last of which can be found online at drmcninja.com

    So you want something upbeat, huh? Usually not my range of reading material. Brandon Sanderson writes some pretty good stuff that tends towards happy endings, Mistborn aside. He’s pretty excellent, you might want to give him a shot. You could also try reading the Kingkiller Chronicle. Just upbeat, fun, adventure story type things that are still…[Read more]

    To clarify further, WD is realpolitk superheroes where people will sometimes get superpowers in addition to PTSD from a traumatic event. GURPS is designed for any setting.

    Here, we have another of my ideas for something to foster community interaction. I’m up to run some kind of pen and paper RPG on here if anyone is interested, we could run a game with 4-5 players in a forum or in private messages. I’d be open to working with WD or GURPS, maybe CoC if anyone prefers horror.

    Taylor Hebert from Worm. Something about being that driven and that much of a hardass is incredibly appealing.

    @silent-radiance We could stick to older stuff that can be found on project Gutenberg for free. Pretty sure anything older than 50 years that’s of note can be found on there.

    It’s normal to judge, honestly. It’s good that you’re trying to get past it, though. Keep at it. No reason for mediocrity. Always try to do better.

    Crazy thought, but maybe we should start some kind of media club, where we collectively read or watch something and discuss? It’d be a way to have new members make friends more easily, and foster social ties in the community. We’d need something like 7-10 people to get this started though. Anyone interested? We can hammer out the details when I…[Read more]

    • I wish we could still create groups, it would help to get this started.

    • @hopefullylesspretentious I think this could be a good idea, you can always make a thread within a group since it’ll still show up in the “On The Forums” section and attract attention.

    I have returned from Ghana. Highlight: Delivering a baby by iPhone flashlight during a blackout and having it named after me. Also, seeing wild elephants on safari in Mole.

    Change your track of study? I just moved away from premed into some combination of compsci, math, management, and polisci. Then again, if you’re not in the US, that’s not so simple.

    Found the scrubs I was wearing the last time I saw someone violently die stuffed in a drawer somewhere and had a pretty bad flashback. How do other people with PTSD cope?

    • You could try therapy, meditation or yoga @hopefullylesspretentious, I’m sure you will find the right thing that will benefit you in overcoming PTSD, you deserve all the best, feel free to message me anytime if you want to vent or chat, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • I second what oli is saying and also maybe talking with a specialist I very much suggest looking into the root of fear and what is conditioning, peace be with you. <3
