It may turn out the gay men of Bulgaria are all phobic. At least for the moment it looks that way. On Friday I had a... not exactly a date with one gay man, we had setup almost everything, even the "terrain" as we call it here (an owned place to have sex undisturbed, usually an apartment). While we were talking about what not, somehow the sexuality topic came into the conversation. I told him I was pansexual (because that's closer to the truth about me than bisexual) and in 5 minutes he disappeared somewhere. I waited for him for more than 2 hours, then left. When I came back home and opened FB to ask him what happened, he had blocked me.
Today I had similar experience with another gay man. This guy didn't block me but didn't answer back. There was the inscription "message was read on [date] at [time]" but ne hever answered.
So tonight I decided to ask some of my sys' friends cuz the most of them are gay at a different age, mostly older than me and through her profile I found them. Ofc I told them who I was, I didn't ask straight up (no pun intended). I asked them why these two guys acted like this. Most didn't answer, one blocked me too and one (the oldest) said just "don't ask". And that was it.

Looks like the bi/panphobia here is more common than I previously thought.

I would like to live life without paranoia and anxiety. I may need a benzo to relax. that or benadryl because I heard it can help with anxiety.

Benadryl helps with anxiety by making you unconscious. :P

The run itself went to plan, although had to dodge a few heavy breathers on route but now wondering how do I stop sweating?

Drank water, sweat! Had a cold shower, sweat! Wiped myself down again with a towel, sweat! Window is open but no air is coming through.

So now thinking maybe I’ll sleep out in the garden tonight.


Well done! That's awesome!! :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

I usually stay the colour of a tomato for at least an hour or two afterwards and I usually find it pointless showering straight away for the reasons you describe. I usually do some stretches, drink some electrolytes, and find some busy work around the house/garden until I'm ready to shower. I do prefer running on a cool day or even in the rain (within reason), as it's easier to run in and easier to recover from, but sometimes you just have to get on with it when you have chance, whatever the weather.

Benzos and diphenhydramine (Benadryl) both increase the risk of developing dementia and rapidly lose effectiveness and lead to dependence and withdrawal symptoms upon cessation.

Neither is a safe or effective long-term treatment.

Thanks mate! Actually a warm down, stretching etc probably would have been wise. Lost concentration panicking about how do I stop the sweat from taking over me :D

Now Googling how to, and can I cull the family of squirrels who have taken up residence in my garden.

My neighbour leaves food out twice a day for the birds. The squirrels takes the food and buries it in my garden. Then a few hours later comes back for it. They appear to not have good memories and fucking can’t remember where they put it so digs more holes searching.

I have to watch this ritual every fucking morning and again in the afternoon (the joys of working from home during lockdown) and my garden is full of holes.

So I either take the squirrels out, or the neighbours? :jihad:

I hope you won't kill the animals. I know they can be pests but cum on - they're so cute animals. You can try asking them nicely first: find out where their lair is and setup a fire with smoke right under the entrance, so that the smoke enters the hole. Animals don't like smoke and will get away from it. Also, try not to set your garden on fire in the process. :lol:
If that doesn't work, you can ask your local forest services how to get rid of the animals without them ending up dead. Every country that I know of must have such a service, so they could help you.

It’s actually legal to kill squirrels in the U.K., well the grey ones anyway but I would not have the stomach for that and I also find them kinda cute when they’re not making holes in my lawn.

Cutting out the food source is also one way to drive them out but will have to negotiate that one with the neighbour! :facepalm:

Definitely will ask my local council to help also. Sure I’ll miss them when they’re gone.

I would have thought, that if any squirrels were protected in the UK, it would be the red ones, since they are the original population and also endangered.

Maybe its all?

A friends mum leaves food out the front of her house for local wildlife, batches of cooked sausages for foxes, cat food for a particularly noisey hedgehog and whatever scraps she can, she also throws birds seed all over the place too :keke:

I know her neighbours have got quite angry about it, it gets to about 7pm and the front of her house looks like a real life version of snowwhite, with hungry, expectant animals waiting for dinner. But they leave alot of mess around the place. The foxes hang about and get into peoples rubbish during the night and birds pebble dash cars with shit.

Its a shame, I feel she would do better to live in the countryside, rather than south London.

I am, however, also happy she isn't my neighbour.

I really don’t want to use them for long term use. Anxiety has increased a lot lately. I don’t want to abuse pills and would only use it during anxiety attacks.

Sounds like a complete nightmare! I have the same issue with the birds feeding and leaving shit everywhere but easy to hose off. Fox crap is another level though..

You’re right, red squirrels are protected.

Doesn't matter. Technically it's not illegal to kill any animals in Bulgaria either (despite that there are some laws against it) but that doesn't mean I would do it. If my life is not threatened by the animal, I live by the principle "live and let live", regardless of the country. I doubt a squirrel can threaten your life, so there's no need to kill them.

I really feel like I want to learn a foreign language. I don't know why, it's just one of those weird desires that's always lurking in the back of my mind somewhere.

Learning German would make the most sense considering my family tree but I just don't fancy learning that one specifically.

Learn Dutch! The Duolingo Dutch course is pretty good.

That is one I've considered.

For reasons that are known but very stupid to me my main preference would be Russian, followed by Italian.

Or Japanese but that one would be insanely difficult compared to the other choices.

Why Russian? If you're going to learn a Slavic language, I'd recommend Czech. :nod: It uses the Latin alphabet with relatively close/obvious pronunciations and is mutually intelligible with Slovak and, to a slightly lesser extent, Polish. So it makes a good entry into Slavic.
