Kroc Rows, btw, are a gosh darn manmaker. Good Lord, approaching the end of your set, your grip's been failing for the last 6 reps, you've got 3 more to go, your lats feel like they're gonna just blow clean off, it's a beautiful lift.

Dips twice a week is pretty brutal too, I'd never really done them before, but they give a really nice pump.

True confidence can only come from within. Exercise might be helpful in building confidence only in the positive effect it will have on your mental state--external validation from things like /soc/ won't make you feel any better other than for a short and ultimately hollow moment. Exercise and eat right because they make you feel better, or to look the way you want to look, not to become "attractive" which is a nonsensical and subjective thing anyway. Learning to love yourself will do far more to make you attractive than getting rid of your love handles.

If you can't find internal validation from self-improvement and becoming the person you want to be, you might want to talk to a psychiatrist about your confidence issues as well, since they could be indicative of depression or anxieties that should be treated with drugs. But keep in mind that you'll generally feel an overall improvement of mental state from healthier lifestyle, too.

One black pooping isn't a sign of impending critical health issues is it (Just something you should watch out for continuing)?

Been sick the past weak with a kidney/bladder infection or something and on the antibiotics, not been eating so much so I wasn't pooping, only a couple of tiny lumps put out like twice (which were the normal brown color) during that period.

Today, its the end of my course of antibiotics, not totally 100% but feelings much better than back then, has an actual meal and everything to herald my return to health.
Had a proper lengthy shit this afternoon and just had another one tonight which not overly painful but a bit of a strain after so long without, and I look down noticing the water is too clouded/dark to see the leaving but you think maybe that's partly the urine as well.
I wipe and take a look at the paper and the smear on the paper is a really dark brown-black which is worrying.

Black poop is sign of blood in it right, but is it possible to just have this sort of thing as a one-off without a serious cause? Like maybe its just something that happened from all that illness and now my body is starting up again its the dross getting worked out of the system?

30 years old if that matters overall.

It is entirely possible for poop to be black without being full of dried blood. For example, pepto bismol will turn poop black.

The water should probably be turning a little red if the poop is full of blood, even if the poop itself is black.

That said, the age doesn't matter much--ulcers are one of the number one killers of young men, but on the other hand, antibiotics would be the prescription for curing an ulcer, so if you were on antibiotics you don't need to be as concerned.

But talk to your doc if you're concerned. Also, if your urine is so dark it's making the water hard to see, you should probably be drinking more water--diarrhea and other stomach bugs often get you dehydrated quick, so if you haven't been drinking extra water to compensate, you're probably low.

Cheese is made out of milk, so it should have some A, D, and B12 vitamins, plus calcium. It should be healthy for your bones. However I do not recommend too much of it, since cows are fed a lot of estrogen to make them produce more milk, and this filters down the food chain - if you drink a lot of milk or eat a lot of cheese while your body is developing, it will give you a more womanly figure. It's one of the reasons why Japanese women went from flat as a board to being titty monsters in the last generation, since estrogen was introduced into cows' diet sometime in the 80s I believe.

Either way if your problem is struggling to stay awake and feeling tired and irritable, then I'm guessing you need more C vitamins. It is most commonly found in citruses, so eat more oranges, orange/lemon juice, etc. Also, around here early winter is tangerine season, which I personally really like (they are mini oranges, like a snack version of them, and the Clementine variant is seedless and very sweet too).
B6 and B7 vitamin also helps, for that you just need to eat more meat.

The scaremongering is indeed real. The news site I frequently read had something like 5 pages worth of coronavirus related news only, on the front page. It's a left-wing "liberal" portal, though. The conservative ones only had 2-3 articles out of 10-20. Truth is that so far this virus only killed about as many people as regular flu does every year.

Getting everyone freaked about cities getting quarantined is a way to make people buy excess food and supplies. So in the end fucking nothing will happen, but the supermarkets will make a killing after the panicking people clean them out.

The bad part about that is that you only need a handful of crazies buying up everything; other people will follow suit out of necessity once the aisles go empty (once food goes scarce, you'll have no other choice than to stock up, due to the shortage). This is a self-feeding cycle that does the market good.

Parts of it can, the panic spending creates a feedback loop. Probably not 'going empty', but creating a perceived shortage, prompting more hoarding from those who didn't buy earlier.

Reporting no cases is very misleading. If a country does no tests, it will report no cases. For example:
- New York does the most tests, so they have the most cases.
- Germany counts deaths as those only caused by COVID-19 and nothing else, if the victim has another illness next to coronavirus, they will count it as a death caused by (some other illness). Consequently they have the lowest death cases in Europe, even though they are not faring any better.

An african shithole of a country will most likely just have no tests done, and the amount of deaths caused by this virus won't even register next to the death tolls caused by a near constant state of civil wars, famine, ebola, HIV, etc.
Same reason why China only reported a hundred thousand cases (they stopped tallying and started cremating people) or India not getting any cases so far.

Fact is that as of now the virus is everywhere, chances are even you might have it.

I got curious and looked up a list of recent epidemics. In 2000 onwards, the epidemics which had over 1000 reported deaths affected:
>2008: Zimbabwe, cholera
>2009: Worldwide, swine flu/H1N1
>2010: Haiti, cholera (ongoing)
>2011: Congo, measles (ongoing)
>2013: West Africa/Worldwide, ebola
>2015 : India, swine flu/H1N1
>2016: Yemen, cholera (ongoing)
>2018: Congo, Uganda, ebola (ongoing)
>2019: Congo, measles (ongoing)

So /baw/ I just finished a course of Omeprazole and was not aware of the "rebound acid hypersecretion" that hits you after you stop taking it. Right in the middle of this bullshit about a super flue I'm being fucked by my guts ejaculating acid and it apparently lasts for 2 weeks after you stop. More than a week and a half to go then before it should settle down.

Well, Covid is just a super powerful flu that attacks your lungs, while ebola liquifies your insides, so that's kind of expected.

And when the fuck did Soul Calibur turn into Dragon Ball Z? I used to like it because it had the most realistic and fluid character movements I've ever seen in a game (not counting the stupid shit like Cervantes teleporting or the gimp moonkwalking on all fours). This anime posing is pretty fucking stupid and kinda breaks up the fluidity of the game. But then, I haven't played it since maybe Soul Calibur 2, so what do I know.

I wouldn't know about gut problems, we have several strong local type of drinks as well as many thermal waters - both which are effective against it. I get panic attack induced nausea more often than actual stomach issue induced ones (which was a problem in itself, and I only realized it was all just a "fake" stomach ache when I got actual stomach problems that forced me to threw up).

As for sweating while sleeping, that only happens to me if I drink too much water before going to sleep, or if I wake up in the middle of the night to drink some water. More water intake = more sweating, basically. No idea how this relates to your case, however.

Do you actually have diarrhea or vomit, or all you do is feel nauseus, weak on your legs? The latter is one of the many ways how anxiety manifests. Feeling cold, sweating, and shaking legs are some others I've experienced. When I get the chills, I immediately know I'm having an attack, then I will get nausea. I only had shaking legs once, at which point I said to myself that this is getting ridiculous and willed myself to go on, after which the anxiety faded away.

I've went to all sorts of doctors for a period, thinking I had stomach illness, but nothing was found. Then many years later I finally figured out I was actually having panic attacks. This helped me get over the problem. The other was a time I had an actual stomach ache that forced me to wake up midnight to vomit; it was a completely different gut feeling than just the standard anxiety-induced nausea, which made me realize the difference between the two. Since having stomach problems is one of the things I fear, and in turn what gives me anxiety, I sort of "faced my fears" on that one, and actually did not have panic attacks for a while after that.
Eating in public is still what gives me the worst anxiety, due to the fear of having stomach problems.

Don't know what else to say but to experiment with changing your eating habits. I know that most of my stomach issues are caused by my bad eating habits (I have 1 or 2 meals a day, but then I gorge on it like a pig, and I do not eat much if any fruits).

It's going to stay fucked until all the stupid people catch it, after that it will be limited in how much damage it can go.
So expect it to continue for quite a bit more. Until the end of the year minimum. Unless the virus mutates and re-infects, things will get crazier if that happens.

Also note that significantly more people already caught it, and healed up from it - on many people, it has the symptoms of a mild flu. I had two flus this winter, back to back, so I wouldn't be surprised if I already had gotten it way back then.

No sickness will make you immune to it, they just force your body to produce antibodies to defeat the sickness, which is how you recover; after which your body still "remembers" the virus for a time, and upon detecting it, it will start producing antibodies before it can get severe enough. But this is not permanent immunity, it goes away with time, otherwise people wouldn't catch a mild flu every year. Vaccines work the same way, they contain weakened viruses that "trick" your immune system into producing antibodies. It's why you have to take some vaccines again and again, because they only last so long depending on the virus.

COVID is like a turbo flu. It's much deadlier, much faster acting, and your body has less time to work on passive antibodies (the early warning system of your body) because it is too busy producing active antibodies that combat the already raging illness. So you can get it again faster.

That's not the real problem though. The real problem is that it spreads so fast that it overloads our healthcare system (not enough intensive care units), and it may even leave permanent damage in your body. Our aging populace can make the entire effect much worse too.
