Here on Classic we understand that sometimes life can get difficult and we struggle. We may need to receive advice, vent, know that we are not alone in our difficult times, or even just have someone listen to what's going on in our lives. In light of these times, we have created the support threads below that are open to all of our members at any time.
Everyone has stress and anxiety to face in their lives, and you are not alone. We are here to support you in these hard times and help you through it. If you need to vent or just someone to listen and talk to you, you can post on this thread about it.
Mom: I know if you were still here you would tell me I don't deserve this. You would tell me to move on and to let them figure it out themselves. You would tell me I don't deserve to cry my eyes out in bed over something that should be fun and over people who have proven time and time again that they don't like you. You would tell me to stop subjecting myself to a place that does not care about my opinion and does not want my help. You would tell me that I should have stayed gone and that I had made a massive mistake. After all, this was the very site who had started a coup against you for simply speaking your mind despite years of service. The same site that you've frequently voiced others concerns because they were too scared to do it themselves, knowing fully that I would be labelled the bad guy, but of course I'd rather be labelled the bad guy other then anyone else.
Yet here I am again. This site has a way of drawing you back in, especially when it's in need of help. You're right, mom. I have every right to leave, and I'm sure you're up there right now screaming at me to say screw it because I don't deserve it, but you didn't raise a quiter mom. Then again, when do you just let something go? What do you do when the site is decaying from the inside out? What do I do mom?

So I know I don't have to give an explanation or even prove myself to anyone but I do have guilt for having been gone from Classic. I figure I'd just be honest and open about things. When I started Classic in 2014 (on Halloween, I totally for about that till I looked at my old profile.) I loved it and was pretty active in it until I think 2015(ish) when alot of things were going on in my life (i.e my ex boyfriend left and I had to pick up extra slack to make more income and support my family.) You guys had been so understanding and awesome about it. I did end up returning in 2016 and was on and off again on Classic until 2018. Around that time I faced a lot of things that shouldn't have happened, like being thrown out of my house and almost left homeless (my friends and then fiance saved me) and struggled with dealing with abusive parents. I had disappeared once more when life finally just got insane (well it started when I moved and had no internet for like four moths.) Even when I got the internet back I struggled with cutting ties with my mom, being busy with work, and being diagnosed with bipolar depression (that threw me for a loop but explained a lot of things.) Even when things began to slow down work wise I just lost motivation and stopped enjoying hobbies I truly loved. It had been hard but slowly I was trying to be myself again (with the support of friends and my husband.) I promised myself when I could I would come back and try not to leave again...not be a flake (that's not something I typically am but Classic has shown me otherwise.) A small reason I was hesitant to rejoin was also guilt I left everyone hanging when I could have returned sooner. I didn't want my friends on here think I didn't care about them. With the quarantine going on I decided to check out the old site and found it got moved here. When I recognized some old usernames on here I got excited because ahhh my friends were still around, and so here I am rejoining for a third (and hopefully) final time. I know it probably isn't needed but I am truly sorry for not being around and leaving randomly, and while life happens I still should have come back just so you guys knew I was still thinking about ya'll. Thank you for having me back here and I hope you guys can forgive me for all of this.
(Oof didn't realize how long I made this, also sorry about that.)
ashestoashes I don't think anyone will blame you or be upset with you for leaving. Everyone is just glad that you're okay! Has your life settled down a bit now? More importantly, do you feel happy now?
I'm really glad to see you around again, though. I know we weren't close friends or anything, but Classic is still a family for most of us, so it's really nice to have you back ♡

Life has definitely gotten better and soon I'll be seeing a therapist to continue to help me. I'm pretty happy as of right now and am gonna continue that mindset 😁 I'm glad to be back and to be seeing everyone again, makes me happy that I know everyone and everyone remembers me. Glad to be seeing friends ♡

I have been dealing with anxiety for a long while. I went to counseling in High School because of an unhealthful English teacher. The only use the counseling was to me was it took me out of class for an hour once a week. The counselor kept trying to show me ways to cope with my anxiety, all I could think about was what was the cause. I suppose it was helpful in some way. I remember when I had my a-ha moment to the root of my public speaking anxiety. I just cared to much about what people thought about me. Obvious now that I look back at it, but it never clicked in until I spoke in front of a bunch of strangers for the first time in my life.
Now it's social and sometimes situational anxiety. Most of it is over thinking, going over past events. Or thinking about what ifs. I have been recently wondering if I am addicted to this symptom of my anxiety. I feel back, but I also feel really good at the same time.
Now that I have worked in customer service for over 3 years, my social anxiety is a little easier at times. I just put on my customer service persona and have at it. But when I find myself actually trying to socialize I still stumble over my words. Or say something socially unacceptable because I have let my emotions take control.
Recently I have been contemplating how I would like to further my fight on my anxiety. I am unmediated and would like to stay that way as long as I am not a safety hazard to the people around me. I have been contemplating working on my lifestyle first and changing things that may further inflate my anxiety. Example, not consuming products that have caffeine in it like coffee, pops and chocolate. Eating and exercising more. Set a sleep scheduled. Eventually I want to completely cut out unnatural sugars from my diet and solely eat whole foods.
I am just wondering if I correct these behaviors, would my anxiety be better, worse or the same(obviously no one but my own body can answer this after at least a couple of months of following the lifestyle I am thinking about). Regardless of the outcome of the lifestyle change, I assume it would be good for my body nonetheless. Just seeing where I am after that and taking new steps accordingly. I just don't want to take medications. I have been battling this for years without medications, and I know if I play my cards right I can finally overcome it. Maybe I just need to suck it up and say 'no more'.
Maybe it is an addition for me. Anxiety is my drug. A friend once told me that everyone has an addition. It may not be a common addiction like alcohol and drugs. For some people it is religion, some it's sports. I think mine is anxiety, and the self pity it brings with it.
I told myself I wouldn't let it get to me but its honestly only gotten worse for me. Every day, for the past week or so I have had strong moments of crying and I can'tcontrol it. Its been a month and some change since my dog passed. Maybe its because I'm home-sick and when I think about going home, he's not going to be there like he usually is and its hurts. A lot. It's a weird thing because he'sa dog, but he was probably the one I talked to the most whenever I was feeling stressed out. Just watching him deteriorate in such a short amount of time pains me and it keeps replaying in my head, over and over again and I feel guilty for it. When I took him to the vet, I had the opportunity to have him tested further but I declined and I feel that was the one chance that could have saved him. I hate myself for it. And what makes it worse was that he was actually trying to get up and move around like we wanted him to but it was too much for him. Yeah, I know he's not suffering anymore but I feel like the whole situation could have been avoided or at least mitigated if I knew what was going on with him and I could come to terms with it but I didn't and it was all so sudden. But I am glad I immortalized him through various hand drawn portraits and photos.
I used to aspire to become a veterinarian, but now I realize I don't have the heart to do it. I care too much about animals and I couldn't go through. I'm a very empathetic individual so that just wouldn't work out 😅 This post may seem all over the place but I was going through one of those aforementioned moments.
On alighter note than some of the other stuff in this thread my posting anxiety has been at an all-time high for the last two weeks, which has extended into sending DMs to IRL friends but that's a story for another day LOL
I can rewrite the same message or post for ages and still whenever I think about posting it it feels like my blood pressure spikes up, i spent something like two and ahalf hours a few nightds ago and still I was like oh no i can't post this I cant get it right and it was seriously like three sentences, I can't even right three sentences lmao. My chest gets all tight and I can hear the blood in like my temples and BIYUU YOU CAN'T POST THAT IT SUCKS EVERYONE IS LAUGHING AT YOUR POSTS BEHIND YOUR BACK EVERYONE HATES IT WHEN YOU SHOW UP IN AN OPEN THREAD WHEN YOU TAKE A KIT WHEN YOU GO IN VOICE CHAT WHEN YOU MESSAGE SOMEONE WHEN YOU REPLY TO A PLOTTING THREAD EVERYONE'S LIKE "WELL THIS THREAD IS RUINED. And I'm like well that's probably not all true and my ape brain is like NO IT IS TRUE NOW GO LIE IN BED AND WATCH SURVIVOR FOR SEVEN HOURS IN A ROW INSTEAD OF BEING SOCIAL. And then I do just that because I'm a slave tomy biology. If I do post a thread i start rewriting it in my head and i have to shut my laptop and go do something else that isn't cat roleplay because I WILL go back and edit all my posts that day if I don't stop myself somehow lmao
So if you see me around the site but Im not replying to a thread we have...this is whats going on unless you're ian in which case I'm just being lazy xD Idk I think the solution is to just post the darn things anyway and try get over it because I don't really think I can see a therapist and tell them I'm having anxiety over roleplaying cats on the internet. O rcan I??? Anyway this is stream of consciousness writing you're getting the unfiltered biyuu which is an exciting prospect I'm sure, now I gotta hit reply before I back out owo
biyuu ☆彡 I feel like that is a perfectly normal anxiety, and no one can blame you for it. Responses don't have to be perfect, and sometimes that's hard to realize, especially when you feel like what you're writing is so much worse than what you've previously done. Your own standards are always the hardest to overcome, and you've just got to push through it. Hit that post button and force yourself to forget about it. I can assure you though, no one is going to laugh at a bad or lacking response, and no one will be mad if you pop into an open thread. Look at the quote otm. "Dancingdragon fainted" isn't an intensely eloquent reply (sorry woof, i still love the reply tho) but people still enjoyed it. Coming to terms with that is super difficult, so it's okay if this takes you a long time to overcome! For what it's worth, I really enjoy roleplaying with you, whether you spend two and a half hours on a reply or two seconds c: Sometimes it's the low-quality ones that are the most fun, too. also survivor is a great show and my uncle was in like 4 different seasons

I'm posting this here because it's causing me anxiety but it probably doesn't belong here I don't know.
So you know that feeling when you write or read something over and over and over and your brain sort of takes over and it doesn't even look or sound real anymore? I'm having that sensation about gender. It's been causing me a considerable amount of... feelings.
I first noticed it when I started seeing that lots of us have things in the pronoun spot other than pronouns on here. It... triggered me. In a weird way, like I got hurt by it. And it wasn't rational and isn't a problem or why this post is being made, but it did call some thoughts to my attention. I've always identified as female but I haven't always liked it, as a kid I would beg my mother for "boy clothes" and I used to write letters signing them "Mortimer" because my nickname was Mo and for a kid that's as creative as I could get. Plus I was a big Inkheart fan.
Anyway, there have been other superficial things throughout my life, moments of extreme defensiveness and such, times where my family seemed to feel the need to reenforce that I should play with BRATZ dolls and wear dresses. But I don't know what it means or how to feel and now seeing my own pronouns on my profile feels weird and I have a strange dissociative feeling. It's been a persistent things for weeks now, and it's always been a bit of something inside me that just feels... not quite right. Are there times where I feel 100% like she/her fits? Yep. But other times it feels off, like a puzzle piece that you know doesn't quite go there but you try to put it there anyway.
I'm of course familiar with transgender but, from what my friends and cousin have shared with me, that isn't the puzzle piece either.
This probably makes no sense but I'm not letting myself reread because I'll just erase this and continue to feel sensitive and confused and I don't know. I'm sorry.
I have a friend that was born female, but some days she just feels more comfortable identifying as male. She's not transgender, not completely, that's just how she is. So some days she would go by her birth name, but some days she would go by "Jay", depending on what makes her more comfortable that day. The way we would start the day was asking her "what day is it?" and she would reply "birthname day" or "Jay day" and that was that. Is this close to how you feel? (also feel free to answer in a PM if you don't want to keep talking here)

I know no one knows me well yet but I am dealing with a lot of anxiety and stress. I am currently a long term substitute teacher as a preschool teacher. Since December I have been teaching online through zoom (its quite an interesting experience teaching 4 year olds online xD). There was a lot of talk about going back in person and for a long time my teaching partner and I thought we would be online the entire year. So a week from Thursday we learned that we were going back in person in 2 weeks, we are not prepared nor did we prepare the kids. So basically I have been scrambling to figure out what the actual heck I am going to do teaching in person AND ONLINE at the same time (as long as my job is extended, it expires the end of February). This is also my first teaching job since I graduated May last year (go figure -_-). Oh and my school has literally nothing for us to use (which is starting to look like we might have a few things left) because of a fire last summer.
I am hoping that I get to keep this job because it has helped me so much through my grief. I lost my grandma last year to cancer, and it has been super hard on me because she raised my brother and I. Its not the first time I've lost someone but this is someone I was super close to and it was my first expected death. So I am super stressed out and my anxiety has been high the last week.
I’m so sorry Peaches, that sounds really stressful :c I wish there was something I could say or do to help you out. I just wish I could be there to give you a big hug! When my brother had to stay home and do online learning ‘cuz of the plague that must not be named, his teacher had a hard time adjusting herself and the kids to the new format. My brother especially had a hard time with it ‘cuz he’s not diagnosed ADHD but he’s got some of the symptoms, so he can be difficult to handle, especially when he’s expected to sit in his seat and focus on schoolwork. I really admire and commend you for sticking it out, though, and working with what you have to make the best of things! ♥ peachesnpanda
I've been on and off Classic for many, many years and its always been a comfort to me. Most of you probably don't know me or don't recognize the username but I'm just going to vent here for a second. When I turned 18 I got the first job I ever applied for and I've been there for almost 7 years now. I put in my notice and my last day is December 1st. I'm leaving because the environment is toxic and I am not in a mental state to handle it right now and I don't want to have to handle it in the future so I'm finally leaving. I also just don't enjoy the job itself anymore. The thing is, I'm absolutely terrified. This job is all I've ever known for 7 years and I don't even know what I want to do with my life. I'm struggling to find a job because I just don't know who I am outside of this job that I'm leaving. I am so scared and stressed and I'm at a loss of what to do. I am not that person that can just job hop. I'm also terrified of accepting a job and then hating it as much as I do my current one. I knew if I waited until a got another job, it would never happen. I would grow comfortable again and end up staying like I've done several times in the past but now I'm almost out of a job and I don't have anything lined up because I have so much anxiety about it all. I have enough money saved to pay bills for the next month but that's going to run out. I'm not lazy, I'm not picky, it's just I literally don't know what to do. I don't know what I'm good at or what my interests are outside of this. I'm also just not mentally stable right now at all, which is not helping. I'm a type 1 diabetic, so stress is extra detrimental to my health. I just...I just can't right now. I'm so overwhelmed and scared.
And now I'm stressing because my problems are so tiny compared to what others have to deal with on the daily and I don't know if I should even post this because no one else has since earlier this year but I really need to get this out because I'm pretending I'm not stressed irl
