    TW PTSD like a low grade fever

    I think my boss's treatment of me has gotten to me this semester.  I had a day of low grade PTSD anxiety, like a low grade fever.  I used to feel that as a kid growing up in a war zone on the mission field when there had been combat in town for too long.  The war was all urban in my city and went onfor six years, so life had to go on somehow.  Sometimes I had had to go downtown where low...

    feeling somewhat ashamed to be white

    I am not political at all, and I am not posting to upset anyone.  Sorry, in advance if I hurt anyone's feelings, that is not my intenion.  I am heartbroken of what is going on with our american neighbours/friends and the police burtality and racism.  It makes me upset to be white when I hear this stuff, I do not want to be assoicated with this.   I just feel awful that there has to be any...

    Tomorrow :( maybe tw

    Tomorrow I hoped to be going back to school but nothing ever fucking works out does it. I'm being a stupid bitching rat because instead I have to go to the doctors and maybe inpatient AGAIN. That makes me feel so angry I have no control just someone else gets to decide if I can go to school. :'( I just want this one thing to go right. But its always too fucking much. Too much to ask the teacher...

    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...

    The Frightened Child

    I was introduced to the Inner Child theories fairly early in my psychotherapy in the 70's. They were/are extremely hard for me to wrap my head around. Any and all discussion of them triggered me to a child's eye view of adult parties in the kiddie whorehouse with Frank Sinatra crooning"Young at Heart" over cheap speakers. I still hate that song. . .Those blasted theories still haven't faded into...

    TW? PTSD info

    I came across this site, yup it's related to hiv.  I really think the information gave me a better understanding of the magnitude and far reaching effects of treated or untreated long term PTSD.

    Wasting my time

    I hate that my PTSD wastes so much of my time.Yesterday I decided to drive (a big trigger but I can't give up trying) to my brother's house. I moved just a few months ago so am not familiar with the area. Anyway, he lives where I lived most of my life. It is about 120 miles away. I get lost no matter how good directions are. I mean really lost. I ended up on the wrong freeway about 200 miles...

    Venting arrrrgggggghhh

    i met a lady on here several years ago and we've talked often throughout the years. She's been banned from here for a long time so I'm not worried about this starting anything. She suffers from borderline but I saw a good person underneath the lashing out and self sabatoging. Periodically she's lashed out at me but due to my codependency I always forgave her. Recently there was a death in the...
