    Someehere only we know.... Calypso am prepping through out the day creating paper snowflakes to hang around the ship. 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...

    Son moving out

    Our youngest son informed us that him and a friend will be moving out in April.   That will leave our daughter at home but we rarely see her as she is busy with school and work and stays in her room studying or is either out.    So our youngest is the one I can relate to most or at least enjoy watching grow the most.   He is entertaining and so are his friends,  they are good group who...

    New to site. Diagnosed 25 years ago

    I was diagnosed with PTSD 25 years ago after childhood trauma and then military non combat service. The Doctor that diagnosed me was helping me stay sober and above ground at the time. I have been clean and sober 28 years now. This man may have saved my life. He was a big help to me.

    So Much

    I've lived through so much trauma and I can't seem to get clear of any of it. As soon as I think I have resolved an issue it rears it's ugly head in my flashbacks. I'm tired of the fight the struggle. I can't do this anymore. So alone, cold, unwanted, lifeless.

    Seeking all resources

    On October 7th my husband shot and killed himself right in front of me. It is the most devastating, traumatic, sad, lost, confusing, and lonely situation I believe any person could ever be in. I live in that momment every day. I forgive him for leaving, and am glad his suffering is over. I just cannot understand why he had to do it the way he did, right in front of me. It never goes away...

    Feel guilty

    was infatuated with a younger man (he was 23 and I was 37) at our rickshaw job. He was so athletic and got lots of tips from women (we would give rickshaw rides at an outdoor mall; the mall got rid of our service when the new construction ended). He teased me once, showing me his body. He used to give me a ride home and he bought me candy sometimes. He was fun. But, I ended up being kicked in...

But im tired of trying too hard to succeed...

    Met with my tdoc yesterday

    She said many things to me over the course of our session and a few of them I want to share here.She told me that one of the biggest things I have to do in order to recover from my past is to forgive myself for being a child and love the 3 year old that I once was. It's easy for me to love the optimistic, fun loving two year old I was but I hold a lot of resentment towards the shattered 3 year...

    Feels like I'm losing it

    Over the last two weeks I have typed several posts here and then deleted them. I am having a lot of trapped feelings. I feel explosive and fragmented. What the hell am I doing? I want to get out but fibromyalgia pain is pretty bad these last few days. I am a total failure. I'm so done. I want someone else to bear all of this pain and fear for a while.Ok - I'm done complaining I guess.XF

    Put myself out there

    and it is not working out as I planned.    Of course.    Oh,  I got the courage to post and ad on our local facebook page asking if anyone would be interested in starting a camera club.   Now this took a lot of courage for me because I am afraid of rejection and fear failure so badly.  So writing the ad, and actually posting it was a moment for me.    I want to meet like minded...

    Clarifyer _doc

    I am embarrased to say I don't know what the letters in Tdoc and Pdoc stand for. Seems like there are other letter-docs which get tossed around here. I keep waiting for somebody to ask so that I don't have to flaunt my ignorance, but my curiosity has finally overcome my embarrasment.Anybody?OT - If we put a Tdoc next to a Pdoc, do we have an asswipe? Beehaving now. . .
