      Yes! It's under the advanced editing button. Use it sparingly! This is because the forum has a community point system and when you delete a post from a thread, it subtracts the points from the owner of the thread.
      If you are talking about the double posts in this thread, you are fine. Just be sure when you have something else to add to a post, you can just edit the post within 24 hours as Moonage had mentioned.
      And like I said, the community is different than dream moods.
      Btw, we have a meta forum section For discussing forum-related issues. Leave feedback, comments, questions, and suggestions regarding the site and forum here. Or To Talk Directly to forum Staff: https://www.dreamviews.com/meta-forum/

      Humm, that sounds that just a forum glitch. This is a known issue. That happens every so often. If it does this again, you can just report it via the report button or report it to the staff.
      In this case, don't edit your double posts as we have a bot that looks for them and automatically deletes them. If you edit them, the bot will not recognize it as a double post.

      Principal called me in his office today. He said he's not going to put me in the second unit (another teacher is being moved there). He is going to keep me in ESE science, and he is giving me my own classroom! A small one, but I don't mind. I have been asking him for one for years, his answer has always been no because he doesn't have enough rooms to give to someone who only teaches 2-3 classes a day. Understandable, but trying to float in other people's rooms and also do experiments? Yeah, it's hard. And torture, as most of the teachers want you to leave their room spotless after your class.

      Anyway.. I suspect he is keeping me science because I'm the only one certified to teach both ESE and science. He has 3 social studies ESE teachers, and one with experience working in a unit, so he is sending that that guy to do it. He told me that he is giving me the classroom because he knows that it's only a matter of time before I leave and go somewhere else, and he didn't want that to happen. Hahaha, I never said any such thing, but he can think what he wants.

      It's going to be a great year next year, I know it.

      More good news. Yesterday the testing coordinator pulled me aside discreetly and offered me a summer position teaching summer school to the kids who failed. I would make my normal summer pay (not a full paycheck) PLUS $25 hourly wage... Ughhh it's so tempting. I don't even have to write the lessons. All I would be doing is essentially babysitting. But, it would mean having to get up around 6 am and working through the summer. Lucid dreaming would suffer if I did it. And I love my summers off. I think I am going to pass, but it is soo soo tempting.

      The good thing is that she selected me, which really is an honor. I feel like I'm earning a good reputation, and that's what really makes me happy.

      Happy for you MoonageDaydream, reading your good news was something to smile about whenever I saw them.

      Rant:
      My DJing in general has been kind of impacted since I'm usually feeling too tired on waking despite medication, making it mostly annoying to try and do recall on my phone in the morning. And besides that been having some on-going newer pain issues that don't seem to be related to my usual chronic pain stuff, but I feel it's being ignored a bit. From my experience, once you have a chronic pain issue, doctors will tend to just blame it for anything they can't figure out, like the kind of leg sciatica pain thing I had a while back (that hasn't quite gone away either). This is nothing new to me, it's just how things seem to be, doesn't make it any easier to deal with sometimes. It mostly just makes me lose faith in trying to get any sort of help sometimes.

      Another frustration, around the time of the start of the pandemic, I thought to myself about how others might struggle with being restricted to their homes, something I've never really had an issue with, thinking "at least I'll be able to do some painting in my art room" and the irony is that because of our work stuff I just ended up not having room in there anymore... Mostly because it kind of became occupied by everything else we'd been doing and it just hasn't changed since then; there just isn't room to move the stuff elsewhere.

      I think checking and posting on DV lately is one of the few things I've managed to keep up with recently. Kind of everything else has been a bit... lacking. Just struggling to motivate myself to do basic things too much of the time, or to keep up with things I was doing steadily only a couple of months ago. What's frustrating is that I feel not much is helpful lately even such as medication, talking or actually accomplishing something. It just seems like nothing positive is actually making a difference and I don't know why. Talking to my primary therapist is usually helpful but the last couple of times it doesn't seem to have actually made me change what I'm doing either. I've thought that maybe I'm depressed again but it's difficult to say since my mood is otherwise stable, just kind of listless.

      I've been feeling a little strange lately, kind of like, existentially anxious I suppose.
      This weird thing has been happening to me where I suddenly become very acutely aware of the fact that I exist. (I know it sounds silly).
      I just start thinking about how bizarre and inexplicable it is that I exist, and I have to carry on through this life until I essentially die.
      It's been kind of distracting to me, I keep thinking about it in cycles, and I'm worried it's going to give me a panic attack eventually.

      Has anyone else ever experienced this before? Any advice?

      Yes, I get a weird anxiousness about nothing other than existence. I don't really have advice other than to try and find things you enjoy to distract you.

      This happens to me from time to time and I might have mentioned it somewhere at some point on the forum.

      I'll be doing something completely banal and then sort of at the back of my head it feels like something switches and I sort of stop what I'm doing. I start thinking in the same way as you describe. I try to take the moment to think about other things in my life and about what I feel is important. Sometimes the moment just ends up passing and I'm back to doing whatever I was doing soon enough.

      If you are feeling anxious because of it, then it may be the case that you have an urge to do something but you haven't figured out what yet; I mean like an urge to go for a walk, to make something, talk to someone specific, etc. In my opinion, anxiety is something that really tries to push us into some kind of action and it can be pretty disabling when it has no outlet. So my advice would be that in that moment, you think of something that you feel is important and do something with that feeling or commit to doing something about it later/soon.

      Hope that makes sense and that it helps you.

      I think what bothers me most is the concept of forever. The belief that our consciousness never dies, that, in essence, we never die. Life is never-ending. Samsara is never-ending. We're on a ride that we can't get off of.

      It's wonderful, yes, and also frightening.

      It's been kind of distracting to me, I keep thinking about it in cycles, and I'm worried it's going to give me a panic attack eventually.

      Has anyone else ever experienced this before? Any advice?
      If you are feeling this way, may I suggest that you seek professional help? Question: How long have you have been feeling this way?

      It's wonderful, yes, and also frightening.
      It is both amazing and terrifying. I used to run into people who would say something like "I think I am on my fifth life" and I find that funny. For beings who first became near the beginning of this cycle (say 100 million years after the Big Bang) the number of full lives they could have lead is insane!
      Peace Be With You. Oh, and sure, The Force too, why not.

      You know what is really scary? Go look up "solipsism". Glad I don't believe in it, but, it did freak me out for a day a few years back.

      Edit: Sorry. Maybe don't look it up if you're really feeling bothered by existential things right now. Maybe better to just skip that. When I felt really bothered by the above, I spent hours on the phone with a friend, talking about it. That really helped. Maybe you can call a friend who can help you.

      I wonder if this is caused by what was going on in the world right now? Or The fact you are experiencing this because we are super aware because of lucid dreaming and other practices? It’s a troubling paradox—
      There’s a theory in the field of aesthetics called the uncanny valley. It holds that when something looks almost like a human being—a mannequin or humanlike robot—it creates revulsion in the observer, because the appearance is so close to human, yet just off enough to evoke a feeling of uncanniness, of something that is both familiar and alien. is that what you feel like?

      I used to get it a lot when I going through highschool and University. I was severely depressed at the time though. I am not sure if I was depressed because how weird it is to actually be conscious, or if being depressed made me more actutely aware of the existential dread.

      It does get less severe with time. My advice would be to dwell on it when you can and are safe, as opposed to trying to bottle it up and ignoring it. May take a lot of time to process though, just be patient with yourself.

      They say dreaming is dead, no one does it anymore.
      It's not dead it's just that it's been forgotten, removed from our language.
      Nobody teaches it so nobody knows it exists.
      The dreamer is banished to obscurity.
      Well, I'm trying to change all that, and I hope you are too.
      By dreaming, every day.
