So I'm back here again...

Okay, I haven't been feeling too positive lately for the past couple of days, and my mind has been going out of control when it comes to thoughts. I haven't taken my medicine for my disorder (schizophrenia) for a couple of years, but I recently did and it was horrible. I took a small 2mg dose of Abilify, and when I was standing on the train going downtown and I started feeling extremely ill. I felt dizzy and I felt I was about to throw up, thankfully a lady got off the train and I sat next to my mom. Afterwards, we get off the train and tell my mom, so she gives me water and we talk, etc.

After that experience, I didn't want to try to take my again, so I simply gave up try to go back on the pill. Is this a good idea? My mind is out of control when it comes to thoughts so I don't know what to do.

I've gained some weight in the past and I've stayed the same, but it might be affecting my health a bit (probably not). My knees are very frail probably due to lack of exercise and I've gotten them locked / disjointed before a couple times sitting down on the floor, legs crossed, and I almost pass out every time I fix them. I need to motivate myself to get out the house, or do some sort of workout in the house, but I can't because my disorder gives me such a hard time to do anything.

Again another situation I'm in and I don't know what to do.

My uncle (who used to be in jail) gave me $5000 and I'm not sure how to spend it (I'm not sure if he got it legally either). I can only spend around half of that. Any advice on what I should do with it?

Does this go in the "Disappointment of the Day Thread"?

@Rosalina
1) Do what you have to do. I suggest you consult an expert instead of a forum on the Internet, as for whether or not it's a good idea to give up on medication. ^^;

2) Don't know how to help you there, either.

3) Okay, I think you should take that money to the Police just incase. Better safe than sorry, y'know?

4) I dunno, I guess it would fit better there, in the DotD thread. ^^;


Sorry to see you going through some rough times. Hope things start looking up soon...

...Capcom has more characters with facial hair than 90% of every video game ever. Facial hair is socially considered ugly in most countries, especially Japan.

Anyone else seen the new Transformers? Fantastic movie, one if my top 3. It's definitely the best one yet. The action is the best to grace a movie, it was hilarious, the characters were good, and it had a good story. The CGI was really good, lots of little details and it really payed off. It really was the movie Transformers deserves. I can't wait for the rest of the trilogy. The Metacritic score of 31 is insane, and prime (no pun intended) example of why I don't pay any attention to movie critics. The game tie-in game is also getting similarly weird low ratings.

Lol, what kind of question is that?

Your'e entitled to regarding Persona as your favorite RPG series although not everyone will agree with you

Not that, I mean would that be the general consensus is what i'm curious about asking.

It is? What about all those wise old mentor characters, always sporting a fu-manchu and who know the way of an ancient art? Has my childhood been a lie?

I haven't seen the latest Transformer, but they've never been critic pleasers. That doesn't stop them from raking in tonnes of money. In fact, there was this critic who gave the movie both one and five stars, and left it for the viewer to decide.

I don't think so even though I love the series I don't think it is considered the greatest RPG series ever by the majority.

Only because the majority hasn't played any of them yet. Getting close, though.

@ClockworkMario

Old people are also not considered attractive by the majority of people living in Post-industrial societies (at a bare minimum), so they can grow beards/mustaches if they want and most won't complain.

Of course, I'm speaking generally, and by social customs that are often considered outdated by modern youth, so there are plenty who think facial hair looks good, but by and large, you won't see much facial hair on characters who are supposed to be "stand-up citizens" in movies and video games, especially ones from Japan, where, IIRC, facial hair has equated to a brash or rebellious person since the Edo period, only making a comback for a while in the Meiji period, even going as far as to make it difficult to find work if you have facial hair...

Captain Commando doesn't have facial hair

Albert Wesker doesn't grow an iota of facial hair regardless of age (what the heck?)

Ryu (Street Fighter) doesn't have facial hair

The list of male Capcom characters without facial hair goes on.....................

I can only think of a few male Capcom characters with facial hair; Two obvious examples would be Zangief and Mike Haggar (although I'm aware there's other male Capcom characters with facial hair)

Feel free to check it over. Please note most of these characters are villians and/or old. I only noticed about 6 or 7 playable characters, but honestly, you won't find much more than that from a Japanese company other than maybe Nintendo. I dare you to come up with a bigger list from just one company.

Here's the artist:

It should be on the first page of his works and click on Yosuke with the blue background. You might need to switch to R-18 mode since the picture is grouped together with suggestive pictures.

Not ever, the majority of RPG gamers seem to agree that series like Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Dragon Quest, Mario RPG, and Chrono are the highest of quality.
