My PTSD Forum
I was on 10 MG of Zyprexa daily for less than a month when my legs swelled up badly. I am now off of it for a week and am still experiencing swelling as well as stiff joints. My pdoc said that the Zyprexa isn't fully out of my system yet. The problem is that my joints are so stiff that the pain wakes me up at night. Has anyone else had a similar reaction to Zyprexa? If I wake up in pain tonight I am going to my family doctor for help tomorrow.
I am to start taking 100 MG of Seroquel...
Thanks for reading, I hope you learn something or share your experience or ideas. In most people's life, there is a balance of both good and bad things that happen to them, but happens when there is no balance and only bad things happen? Nervous breakdown is what happens, where you reach your limit on how much 'bad' you can take. I am speaking from experience, my life has only had 'bad' things happen to me, nothing good has ever happened to me in my life. After 32 years of this, I can't take...
This is a documentary that was done by Frontline and aired on TV in 1994. There is nothing violent or graphic that occurs in the video, but it shook me to my core. It validated to me how horrible it was to go through the verbal abuse that I endured as a child (in addition to the physical and other abuse.)
The makers of this film initially aimed to do a story about “disturbed” children. Evan was one such child. In this film, he is an 11 year old boy who is aggressive at school, plays with...
Following from Laurie's discovery that he is exempt from the robbery called "council tax" due to PTSD
I've a couple of major dilemmas here...
I've been living off grid for the past few years, and while it has its pluses, it also has its drawbacks; I'm typing this in a room that is colder than most people keep their refrigerator, my bedroom is just as cold. The generator isn't always a good starter, and I've just lit the water heating stove, I have enough sticks and hopefully there will be...
Way to go everyone...
We are almost there.....
It would be more than awesome to achieve this in 5 days! Imagine that.
I can tell you that last night Anthony sent off an email to the Server company to inquire to shifting to an annual invoice. I know he's out of his comfort zone as this has never been achieved before! Let's make his day as after 10 years of dedication, in the scheme of things, this will relieve him of a lot of ongoing...
I was just wondering if this is a problem with anyone else on the board. It doesn't always happen between parents, it can also happen between siblings, parent and child (with grandchildren) etc.
Any attempt at alienating the children from the other parent should be seen as a direct and willful violation of one of the prime duties of parenthood.
I feel that one of the reasons my PTSD was rekindled was because I was terrified for my children and it triggered hopeless feelings that my...
A year and a half ago, my boyfriend, who craved all control in our relationship and would hit me if angered, attempted to rape me in his apartment bedroom. The screams, the cries, the begging, bound hands, helplessness is all flooding back as I am now diagnosed with PTSD. Putting that night behind me for so long has only built up the anxiety and depression caused by the assault. Recently, I was in my college sociology class and we were watching a film on drugs. Seeing these people not in...

You can be a part of a chance to help make a difference in the lives of thousands of PTSD sufferers who come to this site every year.
The sever costs must be covered by us as members to keep this site up and running. We already raised $2,800 in only a matter of days and we have only have $200 left to go to raise the full year of myPTSD server costs. $1 or...
as many whom I interact with on the forum will already know I have recently gone from full psychiatric supported accomodation to living unsupported again. YES..... they let Laurie out LOL.
I was landed with a council tax bill on Tuesday and having panic attacks every timer I am faced with paperwork I contacted my Psychiatry Social Work Team..........
Imagine my surprise when (D) and (J) both inform me " YOU do not have to pay the Council tax ever again as due to...
Crap ton of bad stuff going on. Losing my drivers license for 4 weeks until I get my birth certificate is one, for those who haven't read my previous thread.
Well, my SSI is all messed up due to issues that occurred when I moved. A good chunk of my mail was being sent to my old address in my old state so I wasn't informed of a review and things got screwed up from there. Basically paper snafu after paper snafu. I had my hearing today to deal with it.
Well, more issues. My grandmother...
I was wondering, i know there are other threads out there but if anyone has recently had this therapy? I am very much interested in it. I was watching a YouTube video where this veteran was using MDMA illegally to treat his PTSD. The way he described the PTSD really took the words out of my mouth, "its like your unhuman" and "MDMA makes you human again." I am sure there is a lot of people feel this way but it seems like i forgot all my feelings. I have became emotionless and...
I sit here web-building, needing a break as it is again 0650 hrs UK standard time and yet again I am awake and have been all night.
So I put finger to keyboard and thought all poetic like........ WHY!!!!! I have no idea, I just felt like it.
So here is that Poem.
To abandon me the way they did,
I could stand proud, I could have hid
Away from life, now with no wife,
No family to comfort me.
I choose now life, I shall not hide,
I have a life, I have my pride.
I did survive though...
Today has been extremely long and emotional. I have been on the been so discouraged in the court system. I can not count how many times I felt like throwing in the towel. I have been humiliated, judged unfairly, my parenting ability questioned because of my mental illness. Yet I pick myself up and keep going. This fight is worth it but so exhausting though I feel like this. I wrote this out of frustration was going to send it to my lawyer"
I got to thinking we should address the things in...
