2021.12.06 00:37 Exclusima I (21m) feel socially behind and miserable

I'm of east asian descent, was born and raised in a predominantly white/brown area, and was bullied for being asian throughout elementary, middle, and high school. I grew up sheltered with pretty stereotypical toxic conservative asian parents who forced me through pretty much every program they could think of growing up to prepare me for success. I remember getting into constant heated arguments with my mom on why I always had to show up to Tae Kwon Do practice or violin lessons or academic programs or whatever else was going on at the time. I wasn't allowed to do normal kid stuff very often. My social skills and happiness have suffered as a result. My dad was always present in my life but never there. He's so ignorant, negligent, and toxic that it makes my blood boil thinking about it. He has unknowingly caused myself and my family so much pain, yet I can't talk to him about it because I know he doesn't have the mental capacity to have a mature, well thought-out conversation. The only things he has ever provided me are of material value.
Though I am now in my last year in college, I've made no friends here (my current friend group is still from my high school days), and I've never been in a relationship and am still a virgin. It sucks because I'm the only guy who has never had a relationship out of my current friends. What I've noticed is that I've had many social opportunities throughout my life, but I am never able to be present, realize them for what they are, and seize them. I'm always lonely and miserable. I don't have the social dexterity to function normally. An example of this was when I was in high school, and a cute girl I had a crush on (but didn't really talk to) asked if I had any plans for homecoming and whether I wanted to go with her. However, because the few times I had interacted with her had been in a joking manner, I perceived her question as a joke and made an excuse to not go in fear of it actually being a joke. Never spoke to her again after that and I am pretty sure I just ended up hurting her feelings. There are a ton of other instances like this throughout my life where I was presented with a social opportunity and ran away with my tail tucked between my legs, and it's humiliating. It's this constant vicious loop of me never letting my guard down around anyone and feeling at ease. I run away and shut people out without even thinking about it half the time. I truly can't stand myself anymore. It just ends up in confusion or hurt feelings from anybody I ever interact with and me being miserable. I feel that I have this subconscious belief that I will always be socially rejected because of the way that I look or because I am so awkward. It haunts every interaction I have, and I just don't know how to deal with it. People think that I am cocky and that I think that I'm better than everyone else. I don't know, maybe I truly subconsciously think that way. I'm so out of tune with myself that I don't know anything about myself anymore. Everyday I wake up and I can't help feeling that I'd be better off dead. I'm constantly drinking and getting high, hoping for some miracle to drop out of the sky and turn my world downside up, but I know that that isn't going to happen. Change doesn't happen without hard work, yet I don't even know where to begin. I'm in a bad place right now. I've tried meditation, exercise, weed, cbd, going to parties/trying to be more social but nothing works. I'm considering therapy, but I'm going to wait until I graduate college in a few months so my mother doesn't find out that something is wrong with me, because I know she's not going to have a very helpful reaction. I haven't been truly happy in years.
TLDR; how can I open up to people? I have deep rooted mental issues and real issues that have led to me always feeling lonely, miserable, and depressed. I won't get therapy right now due to personal reasons. What can I do now to make my life tolerable?

2021.12.06 00:37 tallman919 Very positive results taking quercetin since October

I’m a 38 year old male. My rheumatoid arthritis just began in March of this year. It’s been misery. My symptoms have been sore joints in feet/toes, hot, swollen, stiff, very sore joints in my hands. The soreness and pain so bad that it hurt just to hold a pot. I could barely bend my fingers to make somewhat of a fist but not fully closer. Some fingers worse than the others and progressing worse throughout the weeks/months. My history is one of bad allergies. I successfully treated my allergies by taking allergy drops for years and training my immune system that way. 10 years ago I was very allergic to cats (couldn’t breath if around them for long, swelling, itchy eyes). Now I have 4 cats and only very mild allergies to them. So given all of this I figured the rheumatoid arthritis was related to my history of severe allergies since both are immune system issues. I do not want to take medicine for RA. When I first went to the doctor in May I was put on prednisone and scheduled an appointment with a rheumatologist. I took the prednisone and immediately the swelling in my joints went away, like magic. However, I didn’t go to the rheumatologist. Instead, I set course to find a treatment naturally, as I did with my allergies. First I started taking vitamin D because in my research I saw that vitamin D is thought to play a role in RA. Vitamin D did nothing for my RA. I took it for 4 months and had no results. Then, in October I started taking quercetin. For the first week or two I didn’t think it was working because when I was waking up in the morning my fingers were still VERY SORE but the pain, stiffness, soreness eventually faded but not totally. At this point I was thinking it was because of a change I had made in my diet. So as I close to the last few capsules I quit taking it. 5 days later I wake up in the morning to hot, swollen, stiff joints in my fingers and my feet were sore too. So I started taking the quercetin again, but this time I DOUBLED what I was taking to 1000mg a day, one 500mg in the morning and one at night. I also ordered more. Now, after 9 days of being on double the original dose, my fingers, feet are doing SO MUCH BETTER! The joints are no longer. I no longer have morning stiffness either. The joints are still swollen but I think the swelling is gradually going down. Also, only one finger joint is still sore while the soreness in the others has almost completely gone. On a side note, I have some pomegranate extract arriving tomorrow and will start taking in combo with the quercetin but I can’t say anything to the effectiveness of the pomegranate extract just yet.
Anyway, this has been my experience so far. I’m not a doctor and I’m making no claims but just sharing my experience. Also, I have been taking two 220mg Aleve daily but they had no effect on the RA.
I hope this helps someone!

2021.12.06 00:37 kossimak Can’t buy battle pass because I’m using a PC and I used to be a member of the Fortnite crew on my old ps4.

So last chapter I had no issue buying the battlepass. Now I can’t. It always says login on your platform you signed up with to receive your benefits.
Not a member of crew, nor can I sign up, and can’t buy battlepass because of this.
Serious bug if you can’t spend money, right? Lol

I’m fully out at work just this past week, but before then, it was my way to be myself; albeit, under the radar.
Also in the past, I colored tabs of a spreadsheet with the colors of the pan flag. If anyone wants help on how to do this, let me know!!!
