I'm not saying this to brag, but to the contrary--to show my gratitude for DS PTSD and what it means in my offline life. One of our DS PTSD friends here sent me a message and thanked ME for being a friend. I'm so humbled.
That's something that would mean a lot to me any time. But it means even more after I had a hard time with my friends on my recent visit to Minnesota. I was shocked to find that I wasn't really valued as a friend there, at least not by one of my hosts. I was literally told by someone who said they were my friend not to talk about my PTSD recovery as a guest in their home, and I am careful how I speak about it since finding my voice here at DS PTSD. I got a lot of support for that hard time from you here at DS PTSD while I was there, and I've been recovering from it still day by day since I got home.
So being told I was a good friend here was really good timing. It means a lot to know that I can be a good friend right now. I just wanted everyone who has befriended me here at DS PTSD to know that it means the world to me to be a DS PTSD friend, it really does. It means the entire world to me, and I'm the grateful one.
Hugs to all here at DS PTSD.

The need for treatment and the things we are processing or not processing. Things just linger in the air and I feel like I need it to rain just so everything will settle.
Has anyone else had the incline that doctors just don't seem to see the severity of the situation, I got a call, and I explained as much as I could, how long it's been going on, the constant car horns and intimidation I receive, how I cant sleep in my bed, don't leave the house, because of this absolute fear that something is going to happen to me, also the physical pains, across my head, neck,...
