My PTSD Forum
I had to block a guy I started dating because he wouldn't take no for an answer, after I found out things about him that are on my red flag list.
Luckely I was smart enough to wait and I didn't sleep with him.
But he didn't like me telling him I didn't want to hang out anymore, he practically begged me for another chance.
It really freaked me out and although I blocked his number/fb and such- I was still looking out my window every few minutes checking to make sure he wasn't there....
I don't normally read CNN, but I did today. On the front page, next to stories about international kidnappings, human rights violations, and a state governor's suicide... is the most RIDICULOUS story ever. EVER.
Llamas Go Free, Internet Goes Crazy
Yep. Someone left the gate open, llamas got out, and TV helicopters filmed the whole thing.The internet freaks out and then that becomes a news story too.
Because why? Because society has LOST ITS MIND. Or maybe just these reporters.
Absolutely fantastic Effort! Well Done Everyone!
We did it!!! Thank you Everyone.
I'm at work now and can't write much now other than say I'm shedding tears of happiness and have to go ring @anthony . This is sooooo amazing.
From the bottom of my heart - thank you
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...

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...
