    Atheist unite!!

    Do you believe the earth is round (because someone has told you so)? Or do you "know" the earth is round based on your own observation/factual evidence (that's been replicated again and again)? Do you believe there is gravity (because someone has told you so)? Or do you "know" there is gravity...

    Atheist unite!!

    And this right there is part of the major problem in the entire discussion of religion/anti-religion, science-denial etc. One does not believe in science. You trust science. But it has nothing zero nada to do with 'belief'. Yes, some science is still in the 'theory' phase. We may not yet have...

    Do you need PTSD to post here?

    These kind of threads always seem to backfire .... I'd even go further and say: we're seeing a little bit of psychological self-harm at play. Consider who's asking. Consider their history of doubting their diagnosis. Including very recently bei their treatment team. Keep in mind that pretty...

    Looking for additional moderators

    Could we - privately- nominate someone and they could be approached by you to make them at least have a think on it? Considering we’re in a PTSD forum where many suffer from low self esteem and imposter syndrome, I think many might not even consider it because they don’t think they’d be up to...

    Ketamine infusion therapy

    I'm following someone on social media who recently (as in: a few months ago) had started Ketamine treatment for severe depression and cPTSD and from what I gathered they reporded promising results. Keeping my fingers crossed for you @joeylittle and interested in the journey (I'm not in need of...

    Can it really be PTSD ? psychiatrist now doubt about it

    No it isn't. It's just the most stereotypical one and the one that's most commonly used in movies and such to portrait PTSD. Then they're crappy psychiatrists and I'm sorry you've seen such - same with your's who bases his doubt solely on the fact that EMDR didn't work...

    Getting a Service Dog.

    And unfortunately more often than not do you have to go through a few crappy ones, first. @blackemerald1 any option to ask around what vet other people recommend?

    Getting a Service Dog.

    I'm really really sorry this has happened, like others, had not seen this coming and was so happy for you. But... can you print this ^^^ out our write it on a post-it and put somewhere you'll see it often? I know it's really hard to believe right now - I've been in that place multiple times...

    Current Weather

    OF COURSE the clouds moved in right when we were about to hit full blood moon 🤦🏻‍♀️ I also haven’t touched my camera in so long I made some serious rookie mistakes and I’m beating myself up for it a little bit. Gonna sort through the pictures tomorrow aka after I got at least some sleep into my...

    Current Weather

    also, VERY much this!!! I think our last one was at what? 3 am’ish? 4 am’ish? No way I’m gonna get up for that. 1 am? That I can do… almost to the point of just staying awake 😂 (if only I wasn’t so exhausted, but my vyvanse is also kinda kicking my butt today… 11pm and been trying to get some...

    Childhood Getting spanked and striped naked waist down as a kid traumatized me

    Read again. In fact, re-read the entire thread. Spanking in and of itself is not traumatic. Being bare-butted as a child in and of itself is not traumatic. Spanking and/or stripping naked in the context of other ongoing abuse, dysregulated family life, ... may very well be. Spanking, being...

    Childhood Getting spanked and striped naked waist down as a kid traumatized me

    In the same way that pulling a child's pants down and even being touched there at the Dr's or being administered a suppository isn't causing trauma. Children don't have that inherent understanding of "private area" that you claim they have. A lot of things can be uncomfortable but that doesn't...

    Poll How much does your doc know of your trauma history?

    Other. I'm generally a very very private person when it comes to anything personal. I hardly even share really personal stuff with people closest to me, including my husband. I most definitely would not share any of that with some random other person I have to have some sort of interaction with...
