    It seems my threads have been for the past 16 months very popular/infamous, they may even help the site bring in revenue and 'tourism'. I am actually a TSR legend. However, the act of doing so also hurts my mental health. It is somewhat like devoting several hours of my day to be TSR's resident Pogliacci. If I was happy I would not be on so much, not clowning around. Also, people think I am trolling and saying **** for ****s and giggles when I say the same thing to counsellors and my family. What should I do?

    I prefer threading to waxing, as I find the hot wax dries my skin out

    I honestly think there are people watching my threads while gobbling the proverbial popcorn, no intention to help or appreciation of the underlying problems, they just enjoy the drama

    The times that I do not genuinely need help, it's an avoidance mechanism/safety behaviour and bad dopamine fix.
