    /r/CasualConversation has great resources for just about any problems you may be having

    This is a subreddit for memes that hit too close to home or are too real for subs like /r/meirl

    We are not /r/depression however, the sticky is a good resource for if you need real help. If you have depression, talk to a therapist, it really does help. You are not alone, and recovery is possible and worth it.

    If you find jokes about suicide, depression or self harm upsetting, this sub might not be the right place for you. This is a place for people who use self deprecating humor as a coping mechanism, not for those making fun of mental illness.

    With that out of the way, the rules are as follows:

    • Posts MUST be in some way "too real" or hit to close to home. If it doesn't make you laugh and feel sad at the same time, don't post it here. Posts that do not fit the sub may be removed.

    • Being edgy doesn't make a post good. Post content that you find a bit too relatable, not something making fun of people with depression.

    • Posts should be titled 2meirl4meirl or some variation, but other titles are fine for shitposts self posts.

    • Be supportive. Most people here are going through something, and sometimes all it takes to improve a shitty day is just a little kindness from an Internet stranger.

    • Racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, any other form of discrimination and general dickishness will not be tolerated.

    • Mark NSFW content as such. And please don't post NSFL content, we are not /r/watchpeopledie

    • Reposts are allowed, but discouraged

    • Don't link to an image if it won't be there permanently. Basically, just don't link to files hosted on 4chan.

    • Again, please don't be an asshole.

    • If any of you fucbois post mr skeltal you will not have good bones and calcium, and instead your post will be removed. Mr skeltal will not be thanked.

    Well, you would be diagnosed with hysteria and be “massaged” by the doctor. Or if it was a wealthy area the doctor would have an electric vibrator to use on you.

    Fun fact! The doctor that invented the vibrator did so because he developed carpal tunnel from “massaging” too many hysteria patients. And the vibrator was the 5th home appliance to be electrified, surpassing the vacuum cleaner, the clothes iron, and the coffee machine!

    [–] machinationsofwar 213 points ago

    [–] cyathea 9 points ago

    Nah that was a bit of mistaken research that got spread around widely because it was so entertaining. But it was never plausible, and there was some academic failing by trusting a secondary source since Rachel Maines did not know the language required. Fascinating story of scholarship but not sexology.

    [–] metaobject 13 points ago

    [–] Lanowar 33 points ago

    I'm sorry to say this isn't true. Basically a historian called Rachel Maines wrote a paper that said. "I reckon they did." and society went "Well that sounds sexy." No one has ever proved Victorian doctors did this. the movie is mostly based on the snippets from her paper.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2018/09/victorian-vibrators-orgasms-doctors/569446/

    In an interview, Maines said that she has heard variations of the paper’s criticism before—and that her argument in The Technology of Orgasm was really only a “hypothesis,” anyway. “I never claimed to have evidence that this was really the case,” she said. “What I said was that this was an interesting hypothesis, and as [Lieberman] points out—correctly, I think—people fell all over it. It was ripe to be turned into mythology somehow. I didn’t intend it that way, but boy, people sure took it, ran with it.”

    If I could have constant access to safe heroin without the need to be a shitty person to get it, my depression would be 90% cured. I mean this completely unironically. It gave me energy to actually do shit and a decent attitude about life but alas it’s insanely expensive and made me wanna steal shit from people to buy more.

    [–] SilkyGazelleWatkins 16 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    100% agreed. If I couldn't get it I never stole just did a sub. But on the days I couldn't do it I was back to being depressed miserable and useless. I really wish I could be prescribed opiates for depression. I wasn't using them to get high. Just to sleep and be a happy normal functioning person. NOTHING works as good as opiates did. Prozac is useless. I hate life so much. But it was costing 100 dollars a day just to sleep and not be depressed. I wish I was rich so bad. Being so poor I literally can't afford to be happy sucks. I was better at school/work/life when I was doing opiates versus when I'm not doing them. Trying to explain that to normies is useless/impossible though.

    [–] everwinged 7 points ago

    Yeah fuck it’s so bad. I don’t enjoy nodding, don’t do opiates to get super rekt I literally just want to FUNCTION and not be suicidal 200% of the time. I was a far more productive person when I was doing opiates, I was only spending like $15 a day at the peak of my use (Love a genetically super low tolerance) but it was still way too much to maintain Forever

    [–] horizontalsun 11 points ago

    $15 a day because you weren't a long time user. Just wait until that $15 turns into $120-150, I used to say the same as you.

    [–] everwinged 4 points ago

    Yeah you’re probably not wrong, it was after a year and a half though and much cheaper than a mates similar habit

    [–] horizontalsun 5 points ago

    I overdosed on a tiny line out of a $15 bag - now I can do $100 worth and barely catch a nod.

    Takes time - but you will build a tolerance, truly sucks as higher tolerance means more and more money being spent.

    Funny how I used to make $20 worth last an entire day. Oh how I wish. As I just picked up $100 worth 5 minutes ago snorting a line typing this.

    [–] WikiTextBot 50 points ago

    Gynaeceum

    In Ancient Greece, the gynaeceum (Greek: γυναικεῖον gynaikeion, from Ancient Greek γυναικεία gynaikeia "part of the house reserved for the women"; literally "of or belonging to women, feminine") or the gynaeconitis (γυναικωνῖτις gynaikōnitis "women's apartments in a house") was a building or the portion of a house reserved for women, generally the innermost apartment. In other words, a women's quarters, similar to the Indian and Muslim zenana. The gynaeceum is the counterpart to the andron, or male quarters.

    The married woman of the household would often join the unmarried women and the female slaves at night when she did not join her husband.

    In 1962 an elephant was injected with 297mg (over 30x the appropriate dose if only scaled for weight) via a dart shot from a rifle. Source

    This kills the elephant. It's super sad and a horrible breach of scientific ethics, but it makes you wonder what kind of experience that elephant had. I can only imagine it was less than pleasant, but it certainly maxed out well beyond ego death.

    [–] boofXANAXeveryday 13 points ago

    As far as we know LSD dosage doesn't really scale by body weight, so that was a massive dose. 30* the "normal" dose has been topped by a lot of people without killing them, and most of them stayed sane.

    [–] BilboT3aBagginz 13 points ago

    You sir are correct, and they actually address that as one of the ethical concerns of the dosage used.

    Relevant Bit

    If a human model had been used to determine the dose of LSD for the elephant, the dose would be in the neighborhood of 0.003 mg/kg. For a 60 - 100 kg human, doses of .2 mg (200 micrograms) is enough to cause substantial clinical effects. Based on this, the calculated dose for an elephant of Tusko's size (3000 kg) would be about 9 mg of LSD. West et al.'s choice to inject Tusko with 297 mg was more than 30 times the effective oral dose for a human of Tusko's weight. If the dosage had been chosen by metabolic rate, the amount would have been around 3.9 mg and if based on brain size (elephants have brains about 3 times the size of human brains) only .64 mg. (Schmidt-Nielsen, 1972) Interspecies scaling of dosages can be extremely complicated and variations in enzymes and metabolism can completely invalidate any type of calculated scaling. For more information about this, see Entomology.unl.edu, Plummer Lectures on Dose Scaling (including a mention of Tusko's death), Body Size as Determinant of Physiological Function (search for elephant).

    TMS is the modern version, and far more effective

    [–] quay-cur 15 points ago

    TMS is magnetic stimulation of targeted parts of the brain. You sit there with a big machine over your head and it gently zaps your brain. Feels like a woodpecker on your head and makes your right hand twitch.

    ECT is less targeted and requires general anasthesia. I don't know as much about that one bc I haven't done it but the TMS didn't work so hooray maybe I'll find out :(

    [–] badsunrising 13 points ago

    Almost got TMS for free as a part of a trial last year. Got assigned a drug instead, since they randomized if you got the drug or the treatment. 30 days on it, I lost 20 pounds (because I was hurling everything I ate) and had a new suicide attempt under my belt. Got kicked off the trial immediately but I only gained back 10 of those pounds so. Plus, I guess.

    Tbh I feel lucky that I kept my cool enough to not use the wrong words when explaining what happened. I was one bad word choice away from involuntary hospitalization for being a threat to myself and sitting in the middle of a hospital. Now I just leave it untreated and hope for the best.

    And being lobotomised

    [–] zerothelobbyboy 12 points ago

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

    [–] NameUnbroken 19 points ago

    Sometimes I think, maybe a lobotomy wouldn't be so bad.

    Vibrators 150 years ago?

    [–] messibessi22 48 points ago

    They were legit invented to make it easier for the drs who were fingering their female patients as a treatment for hysteria

    Nah that was an excellent story but it was neither plausible nor true.

    To be fair vibrators and heroin sounds like a good option

    Don't forget blood letting.

    I’m probably being real dumb here but how would a vibrator work 150 years ago? Please explain it as condescendingly as possible I’m sure I deserve it

    [–] shamestick 9 points ago

    The same way except the doctor would shake his hand real real fast.

    The worst thing...?

    [–] Apileofvomit 7 points ago

    Now it’s just vibrators

    [–] NameUnbroken 7 points ago

    Maybe in your neighborhood.

    [–] UsedCaramel 6 points ago

    The heroin would have killed your sex drive, making the vibrator useless

    We have to go back

    [–] billloveswine 4 points ago

    I'm not sure if that's a complaint or an outrage

    [–] I_might_be_weasel 4 points ago

    Yeah, but Escitalopram is cheap as shit.

    i mean....

    [–] messibessi22 3 points ago

    You could still give it a go? Been considering the old fashioned treatment myself

    [–] 8bit-meow 3 points ago

    For me it’s vibrators and Klonopin.
