Two things

by Abnormal.Thoughts

First, I’m just going to take a moment to complain about the fairness of life, my spouse has been having chest pains again, and refuses to go to the doctor. I’m the one that’s suicidal and he’s killing himself. It’s frustrating.

Second thing, I watched the episode of Family Guy where Bryan gets addicted to the runners high. I have no endurance for running but I’ve always wanted to run, especially cross country stuff. I can walk all day long without wearing out but I can’t even run for 5 minutes. Lol. So anyways, I started Googling this and it takes usually 50-60 minutes to get a runners high, fuck that, I’m giving up on that right now, lol. More research shows it’s recently been discovered that the high comes from the endocanibinoid system, this is the same system that kicks in with self harm, and marijuana affects this system as well. So, no runners high for me, but I already have the self harm part down, I know that high, and I know marijuana, so 2 out of 3.

I know this post is kinda random but it was interesting information and I wasn’t about to go sharing it with normal people who would look at me like I’m crazy. Lol.

Thats interesting about the same endocanibinoid effect. I believe it. I was a runner and workout junkie for years and now ive replaced it with self harm. the self harm high doesnt last as long, sometimes less than a minute for me. but in that moment its a rush like during a painful workout. The big BIG difference is that self harm comes with a wave of self loathing and shame. This combines with the crash coming off your high and it forces you deeper into hell. Probably the same with drug addiction. at least the runners high leaves you with a sense of accomplishment. If you are hoping to recover from depression I strongly suggest the natural runners high over the toxic self harm or drug high. me Im not trying to recover anymore I just want to ruin my life because im tired of trying

Solid advice. I’m already knee deep in the swamp but I get where you’re coming from. With the self loathing and regret after self harming though, that used to be the case for me too, but once I accepted that I didn’t care to stop and I would do it as long as I needed, then that negative side effect went away.
I don’t know, if I could run like that, I would. There’s so much peace in a nature run, especially alone.

I hope Family Gut doesn’t do one about auto-erotic asphyxiation

Haha, they probably already have. Why not?

You can get up to that 60 minutes in no time, I recently went from 6 minutes of HIIT running 4mph for 1 minutes, walking 1mph for 1 minutes to 18 minutes of HITT in a week and a half. I’d increase my time by 2 minutes every day or every other day. If I felt like I was pushing myself too much I’d just maintain for a day or two. I had to stop because I hurt my hip (I’m 41 and fat) but I’m about to start all over again on a row machine and since my hip has healed (it’s been like a year since I ran) I’m going to throw in 6 minutes of running before my row machine maybe do like a circuit, run, row, pushups, situps, jumping jacks.
