Psalm 91
>1Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.a
>2I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
>3Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
>4He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
>5You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
>6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
>7A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
>8You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
>9If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
>10no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
>11For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
>12they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
>13You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
>14“Because heb loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

>interdimensional autism wars
and thought of browsing /x/ back in the day
there is some traffic on 8kun's /christian/ but that site seems like it is still broken and in a dysfunctional state. it is difficult to bother with an effort post or engage in dialogue there when threads might suddenly disappear without much explanation.

I thought it was a cool idea to discuss christianity on imageboards but it gets filled with needlessly verbiage, so now I just study alone.

Exercise has been one of the most difficult things for me to make a habit out of, so this year I'd like to start working out more. My mom recently discovered she has diabetes, and considering my grandma and grandpa already do too, this gave me a health scare that it may be in my future as well. I'd like to prevent it by being more active, if possible.

I have aspergers so I struggle with making eye contact for the right amount of time. Do you think it's better socially to make no eye contact at all or to stare into their eyes for the whole conversation? I feel like full eye contact would come off as masculine/confident in an autistic way. While no eye contact comes off as more
effeminate, creepy and autistic. Thoughts? Advice?

Hello /kind/ friends. How was your Christmas?
Did you get any gifts, did you give any gifts?
I didn't get to celebrate because of family issues, so I'd like to hear about yours.

I don't care much for Christmas, but I like seeing lights put up in the cold dark winter. I only really like the holiday because it's just a good excuse to see out of town family, but no one traveled this year. Lonely. A neighbor family stopped by, out of nowhere, with fresh baked goods and a hand crafted ornament. That was a nice random thing that happened.

There have been some things that have come up in my family that made it less enjoyable. That's not even going into the political situation. And honestly, as time goes on I have a harder time getting into Christmas. I wish I could feel the magic again like I could when I was a kid.

I definitely liked spending time with my family, but I'm at the point now where I don't really get a kick out of presents anymore. Most of the things I want are too expensive. I'm almost to the point of telling people not to buy stuff for me, since I'm running out of room and don't want people wasting money on things I won't appreciate it enough. That said, I'm still grateful for the things people buy for me.

All interested in Buddhism, I welcome you to https://puredhamma.net :

>Buddhism (Buddha Dhamma) describes the “laws of nature” as discovered by the Buddha 2500 years ago. This website presents those teaching per the Pāli Canon, Tipiṭaka. Even though I am a Buddhist by birth, I never bothered to look into the question of why I was a Buddhist. When I retired several years ago, I first started reading widely on many subjects, including science, philosophy, and religion.


>When I started to glean the profound message of the Buddha, I realized that I had not known much about my own “religion.” Furthermore, it had been “contaminated” over its long history. Since 2009, I have been trying to find the essence of the message of the Buddha. I wanted to share the results with the rest of the world.

I feel like i’m “retarded” at times.
Sorry if the word offends anyone, but it’s the most blunt honest way to describe how i feel sometimes. I feel like i’m retarded.

I have pretty bad attention deficiency, to the point where i feel like my brain is shutting down at times like a windows XP computer. I just can’t converse with people normally or even pay a decent amount of attention to anything, I feel like a robot with every self conscious movement i make, i drop shit and accidentally break shit all the time, and being tall and lanky fumble all over the place and knock things over. I just feel flat out stupid.

It feels like someone turned on that stupid-orb from spongebob in my brain, just making me shut down all normal human functions.

When i’m on adderall i feel pretty fine, but i don’t take adderall during weeks when im unable to pay for it.

I know i’m not actually stupid, but i just don’t know what’s wrong with me. Even putting this post together felt mentally exhausting and i feel like it probably doesn’t even make sense :(. Is there anybody else who feels like this? Is there anyway to cope (without needing to take my adderall)? I try to stay as hydrated as possible if that helps my case.

I feel ya, brother. What you've described is a common occurrence in this day and age. I cannot offer any feasible solve-all methods to deal with such things. However, one thing that has helped, and is currently helping me, is whenever you notice you're being deficient in some fashion, make an effort to improve your situation, however small of an effort it may be. For example, upon realizing I had fallen into a slump, I deleted all of my social media accounts that were taking up my time and encouraging idleness.
I wish you the best of luck, my frien.

I hope you come back to this thread at some point because I have good news: a new book is about to come out that has great advice on coping with ADHD. The psychologist believes that ADHD isn't a medical condition, that it's just like being a different kind of person and it comes with its own needs. The book is called "ADHD 2.0". I don't believe it's out yet as of this post but nonetheless, here's a podcast where the writers talk about the book:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rgb7bzfE__I
They mention something I don't think I've ever heard of regarding ADHD which is the importance of exercise. I know that meditation is supposed to help ADHD and I know that there are studies showing that exercise improves your focus but I didn't know how important movement was, particularly balance exercises so that's pretty interesting to me. In the podcast, they talk about how the cerebellum is typically seen as a kind of muscle-coordination-management part of the brain but giving children with ADHD sports exercises to participate in or balance exercises to perform, increases their ability to focus and that's with no medication! In fact, it was even found that in people who've had damage to their cerebellum, they experience ADHD-like symptoms so that's pretty impressive.
Personally, I'd rather you practised the prayerful meditations of the Catholic Saints if you were to meditate but nonetheless, I do recommend meditation and of course, do some exercise, particularly something that demands balance like running. It was commonly observed that children with ADHD did fine when they were in their football club but when the club activities ended and so the kids were just laying about indoors all day, that's when the problems ramped up.

With that, I now present the so-called "3 Ms of ADHD:" Meditation, Medication and Movement. I think this book could be a big help so you should get it if you can.
