Feeling really low cause I got diagnosed with a serious uncureable disease. Trying to process and come to terms with the implications of it. I wanna go out but struggling to motivate myself to even get out of bed 😔

If a friend or loved one would say that to you, you’d likely tell them to be fair with themselves, yes? That the struggle is understandable and to be kind to themself as they learn to process and adapt to this new information.
Remind yourself of that. 💟

I have a couple of these. It's very humbling. One of the ones I have shortens my life expectancy by 15 to 20 years. Made me appreciate things more and be grateful for what works more. Happy to discuss further if you wish.

So sorry to hear that. You can stay in bed today and rest, can conquer starting tomorrow. Hope you recover 🤍


Take the 11th day. It’s okay to take time to wallow a little after a setback. Take baby steps. Feed yourself, walk around the block, then deal with the implications


Not sure what it is (some people are saying MS but I don't see a comment from you saying that so.. weird), but I also have had some pretty impactful, irreversible health issues so can somewhat relate.

I'd recommend trying to find a way to feel some semblance of control over your situation. For me, that's been trying to stay as healthy as I can, which (again, for me) looks like keeping up with physical therapy and other doctor's appointments. When I wasn't doing that is when I felt my most helpless and hopeless. I imagine you'll still have those feelings at times, especially if you have a condition that progresses quickly, but any ounce of control you can take back is helpful.

Facebook also tends to be a good place for support groups. Some groups are better than others. Try to find one where people aren't just wallowing the majority of the time. I found most of my medical team through the group I'm in and seeing other people trying to keep going is encouraging


Stay in bed today. You don't need to go out. Take some time to process your thoughts. Take some time for you. If all you want to do is cry, do it. If you want someone to talk to, talk to a close friend.


I feel like the diagnosis is the time to seize the day vs letting it pass. Do you have any hobbies that if you did full time you’d be really happy with? If it was me I’d quit and snowboard


Sorry, that’s really rough. Moodwise, some self-care might help. Think of it as being kind to your body when it’s been dealing with a lot. Maybe it’s grooming, or cooking for yourself, or doing something creative, or getting some air. Just something small that’d feel like you’re honoring yourself.


Hey dude, if you think about it, you’ve officially hit the point of life where you no longer have time for stuff you hate. Go do the things you love and makes you happy. If lying in bed all day and scrolling tik tok makes you happy then fuck it do that. If you love to go outdoors do it as long as possible. Tell the people you love you love them and spend as much time as you can. And the things you hate? Fuck it. You don’t have time for that anymore.


Also, science is pretty incredible. If you want to go try to beat this go find that research facility/ treatment and go for it. You got this


I'll go out with you. Anyone else down?


Which disease?

if someone tells you about their friend you don’t know and you ask them, “oh what do they do?”
…that’s a normal sentence until you know for sure which gender pronoun to use. they can be singular.


Sorry to hear that OP! Please do something spontaneous and semi safe! What about making some travel plans?

sorry to hear

The diagnosis is now a choice of how you want to live the rest of your life. Do you want to be inside, alone, and depressed? Or… or… do you want to be the one who goes out, meets up with friends, and lives what rest of your life showing others how wonderful life can be? Choose wisely!

Looking for 3rd roommate for 3 BR luxury apartment in manhattan! 9/1 Move in

We are two males in our mid 20s looking for a clean and respectful 3rd roommate to fill a 3-bedroom apartment in Manhattan starting 9/1/2020. We’re looking at places in the $5300-$6000 price range, so your share  would most likely be between 1700-2000 depending on how evenly sized the rooms are. Dm if interested!


Fun ideas for a second date? Been "casually" dating for too long so it was easy to find a bar to get drunk at, but this was one seems worth much higher effort. Ideally a place that has a not too involved activity, and is not too loud for conversation. We're both 30.


Hi! Wanted to tell you about @smarterinasec, an Instagram I recently started. Every day, I do a deep dive on one topic + provide content recs on that topic to read, watch, & listen.


Partner and I are considering a move to NYC (been a dream of mine for a decade now and we now both have remote jobs) but definitely intimidated by the rental market. We’d love a two-bedroom or 1-bedroom + home office with dishwasher, W/D, cat-friendly, and possibly elevator. What’s the likelihood of getting that for $3,500/month or less? Recognize we can’t get this in Manhattan, but would we be able to find in western Brooklyn or like Astoria/LIC? Don’t want to be too far from downtown.


Anyone looking for a furnished 1BR with in-unit washer/dryer to sublease starting in Oct through Dec/Jan?
LIC, lux building, ~3400/mth + utilities, subject to landlord’s approval
