which athlon you have? I have an athlon II x4 640 propus and can still play plenty of newer games. maybe stardew valley or journey would be up your alley, or, if you're up for a cute but challenging game, may I suggest pic related? Lovely Planet - it's an FPS.

You also might like to try Terraria or Minecraft. Or just play something comfy like SimCity 4 with infinite money. Relaxing stuff where you get to build things. Maybe an autism simulator like Factorio. Anyway, good luck. I can recommend more, just message me on discord.

Metacognition and iterative mental deconstruction. The purpose being to realize that the original question is invalid and nonsensical. Escape "reality" to what? To "non-reality"? To "fantasy"? How could you ever have access to such a thing? Even if you dissociate, or pretend, or descend to outright psychosis, storing false memories and the like, you're still living in, and slave to, reality.

Confucius addressed this millenia ago. "Not yet knowing life, how can you know death?" What makes you believe you know this "reality" you want to get away from? To get away from something, it must be an absolute. Your reality is not an absolute truth, nor do you have access to such a thing. However, some forms of reality are more accurate, and closer to the objective than others. Perception, and self experience, are related to this matter, but they are not the same.

What you desire is a shift of perception and self experience. The pharmacological approach, the consumption of media, what have you, are worthless if this underlying framework is not investigated and properly understood. What your psyche really longs for, the need you feel, is the truth. What you really want is to understand. What you want is an end to the confusion and internal conflict. Do that instead. Don't try to pretend you're somewhere else at the cost of ignoring where you really are.

The last 3 family pets who've died were so out of it by the end they didn't even know who I, or anyone in my family, was or where they were.

If you're having a pet euthanized because of some sudden-onset thing where they're still aware, yes you should absolutely be there with them. But when it's a slow decline, when they aren't really "there" anymore, it doesn't matter. They died a while ago, its just their body is still "alive".

Like my grandma, for example. She's lucid maybe 10% of the time these days, and declining fast. "She" died a while ago, its just her body carrying on through, literally, miracles of modern medicine. My grandma is already dead.

>I'd say a good 10-15% of males in their twenties are doing literally the exact same thing.
Honestly I'd estimate it way higher than that. Probably 20%, maybe a quarter.

*The* defining trait for people under about 30 these days is anxiety, crippling depression, and drug or alcohol dependencies. I know few people, very few, who are 100% functional without using any kind of alcohol, cigarettes, weed, or psychoactive drugs, and also not life-threateningly depressed. I'm not even in the midwest.

Bet you're a big fan of diversity and gun control these days, huh

>Hey everyone, I just want to chime in and say that, as a black woman, I support this mod.
>Very often in media I feel like there's a concentrated effort to force black male/white female couples, and as a black woman myself, that doesn't make me feel 'strong and independent' like we're shown; instead I feel lonely and abandoned. Yeah I like not needing to rely on others but that doesn't mean I don't want to be loved, especially by our own men whom the media seem eager to pair off with anyone but us.

Oy vey this black woman needs to be stopped

I didn't have to put my dog down, he went on his terms. He was the family dog for 13 years, was a chow/corgi mix. Breathing started ragged, then had like a mini seizure, then silence. I cried for a solid 2 weeks, mostly because any time one of us would get home, we'd always say stuff like "Who is it?" to rile him up and he would greet us and stuff. No need to ask "Who is it", there's no dog to get excited anymore. It fucked with everyone's norms.

It was pretty hard but i maybe because it was my first time losing something that close to me. I don't want to imagine my mom or dad passing, and if my wife passes unexpectedly, I'd probably just off myself.

You never are, anon. Same goes for losing a loved one. No matter how many times it happened, it never gets easier.

these, philosophy and reading random shit in 4chan
reading random shit in general and reflecting on it and then on yourself is a really good way to waste time, and, in fact, you can learn a lot in the process, so it's also good for you :)

Audio quality is overrated anyways. Good music will sound good even on dollar store headphones.

I'm going to be devastated when I lose my puppies. Devil's spawn they may be, they're still my best friends.
