A while after I was dx'ed with PTSD at the VA (2K?), there was brief discussion of whether to declare my BP dx an official misdiagnosis. I had been receiving BP therapy for quite allot of years already and I was finding the tools I acquired under that therapy quite effective. I didn't see the point in worrying the official labels.
My father-in-law died on September 29th after a hard decline from hip surgery in August. It has been a long, hard run for the entire family. All of us are cycling like Tour de France contestants. There are allot of different dx'es in our family, without beginning to count the barely knowns from my own long estranged birth family. Each to his/her own cycle. . . On the whole, I am proud of us, both individually and as a family, but the stress cracks are showing, each to his/her own symptom list.
My own symptom list feels far more bi-polar than PTSD. I call my current state, "Fissuring." I am having problems finishing sentences, much less keeping up with my car keys. One minute I am optimistic, the next I am ready to give up on the human species -again- especially myself. Small criticisms feel like Retribution from the bearded white guy in the sky.
Sigh. . . Just when I get all the answers, the questions change. Plying therapy tools. . . Support needed. . .
Please don't judge This may be silly to some people but I have a couple bad teeth and I've put off going to the dentist far too long to have them taken care of .. (my teeth mouth went downhill after having kids) So I made an appointment for tomorrow but I have a serious fear of the dentist and bad dental anxiety.. Any tips on overcoming this? Thanks y'all.
Does anyone experience a lot of stomach pains, like weird sharp pains around the stomach and chest?
