    Today my “coworker” (my pet)...

    Today my co-worker insisted that we go out in the fields to look for dopey gophers awakening from hibernation & trying to sun themselves warm.

    Starting Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) (Advice?)

    Many thanks. I did indeed want to ask you what the name of your drug was, but I didn't want to put you on the spot. I will talk with him on Monday & be open to whatever his experience indicates. Much obliged to you W.C. Cheers.

    Starting Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) (Advice?)

    Then, if it worked/works for you, Warrior C., then I'd also be open to try low-dosing on something or other for a mild effect of some kind if my T thinks that that'd be ideal. I really just want to get out from this whole PTSD thing asap, so the 'hard yards' PE way just sounds like the fastest...

    Starting Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) (Advice?)

    It's kind of you both to take the time to give your opinions here, thank you. I'm getting even more curious/confused about this PE stuff now, haha. My regular doctor told me that Ts generally prefer it if the patient's medicated, so that there's a drug helping to guard against things going...

    Ptsd diagnosis

    Thanks for writing me back. The article just made me wonder how common it is for psych. professionals to misdiagnose someone as having PTSD.

    Ptsd diagnosis

    I found this article most thought-provoking for its description of the apparent 'over-diagnosis' of PTSD. Naturally that has me wondering now if perhaps I myself might've been wrongly diagnosed, firstly by the psychologist and then (separately & independently) by the psychiatrist. If I don't...

    Sufferer Hi from Saskatchewan. CSA, ASA, mugged, and recently diagnosed.

    I joined on here yesterday after a buddy told me about this website. In a nutshell, I was violently CSA'd (14/15yo), violently ASA'd (22yo), & violently mugged at pistol-point (35yo); there have also been a number of other traumatic things besides these violent criminal incidents. Anyhow, as...
