    I was watching TV. As it happened, it was about a killing near my home area. Solved, btw. But it suddenly hit me---seeing the Old Home Places as backdrop and scenery for this show, all that pretty footage---FLASHback...TW (violence) To June 25, 1988. When Dad threw me into a wall so hard the light switch left a dent in my back and held me off the floor (I was 5-10 then, he was 6-2) and my toes...

    Walk a Day

    I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...

    Positive affirmation help

    5
    I need some help coming up with a positive affirmation to put beside my bed for when I wake up.I realized today that it's so hard for me to get out of bed in the mornings because morning was always a traumatic time when I was a kid. I would get yelled at and basically beaten out of bed a lot of the time. I need something I can see in the morning to remind me that it is safe and I do not need to...

    PTSD,

    I guess ppl dont really want to talk. They say to write them and when you do you wait a couple days for an answer that never comes. Why do ppl do that? Do they just have to say something to be heard or what. If they are too busy why not tell you that instead of ignoring you.

There I feel like the world is filled with wonder and friends that do understand. A beautiful boat created by us here at DS . At first we started the cruises with DarkGypsy's glitter sub. It swung the oceans and the universe. Equipped well by Scotty with warp drive....and...

    Haven't Been....

    ...a very good friend lately. I'm sorry. I am just having a really hard time with all these bars on the windows and cameras and security lights. I feel like I'm on display and that is not good with my PTSD. Then the air conditioner goes out....$8000 to repair or $8800 for a new one with a ten year warranty. But where to get the money? I only get a grand a month from disability. Just reinforces...

    PTSD + Stress = sick

    I posted last week about how shakey with PTSD I was coming to the end of the school year at the community college where I work.  For the last 2 weeks or so I had PTSD insomnia going on, which affects all of my other PTSD symptoms.  I still got through playing my part well in the Commencement ceremony last Saturday.  But on the following Tuesday, I got a massive head and chest cold like...

The whole dream must have run on for well over 3 hrs. Its such random stuff i couldnt possibly get a meaning apart from slight threatened feeling. Weirdest dream ever.

    Memorial Day

    Sending my thoughts to those brothers that made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. I know as a living witness knowledge and memories are the tribute I can offer to all who served. To Ed who found the fight to return too much this past winter, your suffering was not for nothing. To those that served, salute and welcome home brother. Hopefully memories of battle fade and stop haunting troops that...
