What exactly is the point of this post? With no details of why you're feeling shitty this is just drama for the sake of drama. and if it's just the same damn thing as always and you're still not going to take the advice of anyone about how to solve it, again, what's the point of posting it?

Post a pic; we'll let you know. The good news about a new prescription is that after about 25 or so, your vision shouldn't change much until you're about 40.

I'm not but try to see where NemZ is coming from. Also it was you who said that post had no point which I personally don't buy. People don't act without reasons in general.

I'm too shy. ;_;

No, seriously, it sound childish and pathetic and I don't know why, but I'm incredibly uncomfortable with having pics of my "naked face"on the web, not to mention that I'm extremely dissatisfied with my face in the first place.

Apparently people need a refresher, so here goes:

This thread exists for dealing with problems. That might mean asking for help. It might mean looking for suggestions on how to deal with the issue. It might mean simply eliciting some much needed sympathy. All legit uses for problems both big and small.

It does NOT exist to post an endless stream of your daily drama. EGF is not your blog. If there is a situation that needs fixing describe it in general but we don't need a blow-by-blow of every single instance or unkind word with up to the minute details.

It also does NOT exist so that you can post vague nonsense in the hopes that someone will ask what your deal is or for you to just dance around the issue to be mysterious and garner attention. Either say what needs saying or don't bother posting at all.

If someone offers you help or advice and you choose not to accept it that's of course perfectly fine, but at that point the conversation is over. Continuing to complain about the issue while not being willing to make any effort at fixing it is exactly what this series was telling you not to do. Either accept things as-is or work to change it; anything else is just whining, and we've already had enough of that from Shinji.

This community is generally composed of well-meaning people who will offer whatever help they reasonably can, but the drama queens need to shape up and stop abusing the good will and patience of other users.

But generally speaking Shinji didn't complain much, he was content to wallow in his misery instead of putting it on others... :headscratch:

Moping around is a nonverbal form of whining. It's a behavior motivated by the desire to get someone else to come solve your problems for you and/or to avoid the issue rather than doing something productive about it.

But whatever, I'm sure you get my point.

For the benefit of the thread, let me rephrase this in a manner friendlier to poor Shinji.

Either accept things as-is or work to change it; if something is within your power to change, don't whine. If you can't change something and need a little sympathy for it (we all get into these situations), you're free to talk about it. But don't endlessly complain about something you can't change or which you're not willing to change. That's whining, and all it does is annoy people. Don't whine.

You don't know many teenage boys. Nine out of ten of them are all about girls, that's their motivation behind almost everything they do. I only took cooking, individual studies and sociology because I knew I'd be one out of a handful of guys in the class, in one case I was the only guy.
