Don't be ashamed of being INFP

So recently, I've been seeing a number of threads, primarily on /b/, which have essentially consisted of people saying, "Oh God, I'm an INFP, I'm such an inherent loser, I should just an hero and get it over with."
These threads ended up being beneficial for me, because I took the tests, and not only read the results, but read a number of other articles that I was able to Google, and realised that I'm an INFP myself. Of course, it isn't necessarily a 100% match in all areas; I'm still an individual. It is a good enough fit to be useful, however.
This prompted me to make a thread, offering some advice to fellow INFPs, as to how they can start to feel more positive about being one.
a} Tell an atheist or scientific materialist to FUCK OFF at least once a day. Do it adamantly, robustly, and with genuine feeling. You'll be surprised how psychologically liberating and gratifying the experience is.
More specifically, be aware of the fact that, contrary to the pro-atheistic groupthink which is slowly taking over the Internet, intuition which doesn't strictly conform to the dictates of hard rationalism, doesn't always need to be seen as a curse. Atheists will see it that way, of course, but that's where, again, the ability to tell them to FUCK OFF (both internally and externally) will come in very useful. Give yourself permission to be intuitive, and to have ideas, beliefs, and perspectives which deviate from mainstream thought. Generally speaking, any idea which deviates from mainstream thought, usually does so by being more intelligent, less pathological, and with a higher degree of moral integrity anyway. You really aren't losing anything, by refusing to follow along with every other drone in the collective.

Hey /adv/. Last week or so, for some bizarre reason, I've been gripped with a sudden, really strong anxiety about death. I don't know what could have triggered it- I'm not sick or old or anything, and it's never really bothered me before. But last week I was just sort of struck with the total inevitability of it and the fear of the oblivion that follows. I haven't been able to shake it since, and the anxiety is started to negatively affect my life and work. Is there any coping mechanisms I can use? Should I consider seeing a professional?

I'm looking for advice from people who have possible been in a similar situation.
tl;dr Do I grit my teeth through my problems and persevere, or just throw in the bucket and get out of this country (UK).
My problems are below: -
>I have 5 telephone contracts that I've taken out over the past 2 years. The first two were taken out when I had no money for rent/food so i sold the phones and the free gifts and the other 3 when I was in similar situations. They cost me £150 a month and cost £1,500 to cancel
>I'm renting a place for £600 a month as my parents said they'd help with rent if I needed help, I had a job and they forced me to live alone. The lease ends Jun 2013
>I have payday loans totalling £1,200 due at the end of September
>I have issues with my parents where they offer help, when I rely on them they pull out at the last second. (Offered to pay my tuition fees and living costs, wait until October to say they won't support me, offered again to help then withdraw because they said I was a homosexual because my then best friend was a guy, offered to help but then withdrew because they said I'd use the money on drugs) my parents are completely out of the picture now
>I have no friends, no one whatsoever. (21)
>I'm fat and never had a girlfriend or sex with someone I didn't pay for (over the past 3 years had sex with about 40 different prostitutes)
>I fell in love with a girl I met on-line and it got very complicated and messy, she's mvoed on and happy but I still can't get over her though I'm at the ponit where it's fine when she's not around

My computer hates me for what I've done.
I used AVG 2013 virus scanner, and now simple windows components like msconfig aren't there, and it seemed to change my internet settings to "allow any and all bullshit"
inb4 dumbass, I know this already. I should have asked how to remove the shit in the first place, not how to fix AVG's retarded ripples of fuck.
That said, how DO I fix AVG's retarded ripples of fuck?
I ALWAYS pick the wrong fucking day to quit smoking...
Weed sucks and makes me paranoid

All weed does is make me confused, paranoid, self concious and beta. I get voices in my head of my friends familar, professors, classmates, etc... and they say things that hurt my self esteem and ridicule me and make fun of me for being awkward. I never think like this sober. I hate weed now, I used to get happy and laugh a lot but after smoking 2-3oz a month for half a year, I now only get paranoid nomatter what. I can't talk to people on weed.
However, stimulants such as aderall, ritalin, cocaine, meth, dexedrine, etc...make me happy, relaxed, euphoric confident, talkative and energetic. So I get high on those everyday instead. I think it's a crappy drug to be honest, even when I didn't get paranoid it barely effects you, and I have medical hydro bud from SoCali. This stuff makes my friends who smoke 10x a day fall flat on their asses in 1 hit. This dealer also gets cocaine right off a brick and very big chunks of meth. He has quality drugs all around.
Who else gets paranoid on weed? what do I do? Quitting drugs isn't an option, i hate being sober and im bipolar.

I work in a hospital, mostly with kids/teens, and I feel shitty afterwards. I like all people, but there are a few who stand out. So far, I've seen a small handful of people who had much unique potential. And I mean that they were rare individuals, in terms of talents, intellect and athleticism, who were/are prodigies as kids. Some were rich, others never had a chance to train themselves. The worst part is that some never recover and die.
Then I go home and I feel depressed. I wonder, "What cool things would they have done if they had different lives, and had chances to maximize their potential?" I found myself daydreaming, while doing chores like driving, for hours, just imagining stories about these people. It sounds creepily inhumane, but I don't see them as objects, I always wonder what they would feel. Do I have some kind of mental disorder? I've exhibited a lot of OCD-like traits. Also, I like to see things like symphonies or machines working perfectly, and I often find myself fixing incomplete or broken things and only stopping when I fixed them.
So how do I get rid of this crap?

Im not sure why, but everytime i talk to my parents i feel really awkward, just being in the house i feel weird, like theyre always around. Im a 19 year old guy and its like i cant even look them in the eyes when i talk to them, my dad asked me something today and i blushed, i have no clue why. Whenever we are in the same room there is always an awkward silence, i hate being in the same room as my parents. Its been like this since i was a kid, whats wrong with me/them? Does anyone else go through this? Its so awkward i really cant stand it anymore; what do i do?
