    Someehere only we know.... Calypso

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mer6X7nOY_I 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...

    MIA

    I've been MIA lately, not just here but in the rest of my life too. Depersonalization has been worse than ever recently. I'm exhausted and unmotivated.Is anyone here part of a real life support group for PTSD? I'm looking into trying one. My therapist thinks it's a good idea. I think it would be good for me to feel less alone.Just about every day, I can only look forward to going back to sleep....

    Confidence

    4
    Where oh where did my confidence go? So many fails before DX and put on disability. Now with limited income, still feel like failure. Walking to the front room makes me want to puke, as I am afraid someone will knock/and see me. Then can't avoid them. Everyone wants us to do things, but never $$ to do so. Then they get upset when we can't join. Wish I shit money. Wish I were in a LOL mood, but...

    its like being stuck in a perpetual spin of her trying to convince me we're soul mates and that she loves me like a crazy pure psycadelic lovethen the chaos returns if I begin to trust her and let her in.its like a mind f&&k of psycological torture when this person refuses to acknowledge all of their abusiveness then overloads me with love love love love fluffy bullshit.

    PTSD and me.

    8
    I recently filled out an exhausting application for Canadian Pension Plan- Disability and when I saw the list of Disorders and diseases I finally had to accept that I have these conditions. Big step. I also started telling myself that These labels do not define me. But I have been trying to see how each issue is affecting me now that I am on meds. My sister has ptsd and tries so many different...

I can tell some deep horrible bad stuff is "in there" and wants out and I don't want it out, I am tired of that stuff, but I know I have ot let it out, but I can't find a medium for that, and ...

    How my break up shattered me.

    Ever since 2009 i found out that how i was raised and what i went through was considered PTSD.  At first my reaction to the news had me making some careless life choices that had me also getting help for hallucinations, anxiety, and bipolar as well.Then when i got situated in 2012, i managed to just meet someone where going into marriage was kinda rushed but i coped. Things were fine until...

    OT Sick for a couple of days

    If my participation here on DS PTSD is light this week, it's because I got some flu but Tuesday after returning from Mexico on Monday.  Thought it might be a bug I got in Mexico, but it's going around my community college.  I hosted the visit of an author to our campus last night.  It was a great success, lots of students came and really were engaged.  Then, though, I spent the whole night...

    Aviodance?

    I think my pyhiscal pain is taking me away from emotional healing. Its easier to pay attention to that pain even though it really fucking hurts its not as bad as thinking about my dad abusing me and stuff. I dunno if its good or not.

    Can't sleep and completely terrified

    7
    I just can not sleep. I had a very realistic nightmare about a stabbing I was in this year. Its way too much to tell about right now but all I'm going to say is the kid went completely ballistic on another kid with a knife and it definitely felt like I was there a second time.
