    Only Person In The World

    I can be driving down a road that I've driven down many many times just to suddenly think the road doesn't really exist. I've been doing it so long that I can kinda just laugh at myself and keep on going. I "forget" where I am and how I got there. Sometimes I'm someone else. I mean I'm me...

    Death Has Arrived

    Hey, Death, haven't heard from you in a while. I have thought about you though. I'm still not ready for a long term relationship. I don't even think I'm up for flirting with you either. I hope you're not crushed or anything :) Tiger

    Washington vs. Iraq - Funny Factual Comment

    Personally, I would prefer the option to protect myself from as much distance as I can get from someone attempting to attack me. I'm not very well equipped to defend myself hand to hand. Especially since it's usually someone twice my size that wants to fight me hand to hand. I have defended...

    What Do You Do When You Reach A Limit?

    I do that a lot. I will be doing great, then wham into a wall I hit. Dean's list one moment... failing everything the next. I've found that if I can stop and take short breaks while I am doing good... it helps prolong the good momentum. I think it's mostly the accumulated stress of pushing...

    Open Up Or Withdraw To Cope/support?

    Remember.... the mask is the appearance of being happy. He's not actually happy. Personally, I would be flattered that he takes his mask off for you. He trusts you enough to be real around you.

    Welcome to the forum. It's helped me a lot to connect with people and get my life back on track. I find that it really does help to talk to people who "get it". Tiger

    Please Someone - Make It Stop.

    It does get better. It gets easier to manage if you work at it. I was diagnosed some time in the mid 90's I know how hard it is and I know how exhausting it can be, but eventually with enough work it will get better. The hope you hang onto isn't a false hope. I'm living proof of that. Life...

    Need Some Help From Those Who Understand

    It's not weird at all. You are both in pain, but you perceive hers as the greater pain so you are making that the priority. It's going to take time to work through yours. Just don't beat yourself up over it. It's "normal" to have trust issues after having trust broken. (At least from the...

    Need Some Help From Those Who Understand

    It sounds like you are doing all you can to help her help herself. As for your trust issue... I have a very hard time trusting anyone, but I do know that when I finally give my trust to someone and they break it... It takes a long time for them to earn my trust back. Perhaps speaking to a...

    Thought I Had A Carer For A Second.....

    The job was ending soon anyway, Albatross :) Don't worry too much. Okradlak, Staying with your sister for a bit to calm down and get your head on straight sounds like a great plan. There are ways to get help even when you aren't suicidal. I can't remember the thing... it's either 411 or...

    Can I Help Bring Him Back?

    He didn't leave this time. That means he is closer to you. Maybe next time or the time after he will talk to you. He's letting you in a little bit more. Don't try to push further. Just be there. When he comes out of the phase... talk to him and ask him what you an do when he's in a phase...

    Any Help With Ptsd Appreciated

    Hi, I've been dealing with PTSD for many many years. Most of the time I have dealt with it on my own in my own way. It is possible. Locking all the crap up in cages in my brain was not the answer for me though. The stupid demons kept escaping. The only thing that works for me is to manage...

    1000 Yard Stare?

    It reminds me of that song... "The lights are on but no one's home." I've gotten pretty adept at hiding that I'm not really there. I have always done the "zoning out" thing. I usually just say, "sorry, the time warp I live in got a little off kilter" when someone notices. Or come up with...

    Thought I Had A Carer For A Second.....

    Thomas Edison once said, "I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that don't work." You only really fail when you quit trying. You won't quit trying. Tiger

    I Need Help With This Girl!

    Here's my opinion. You have been given very good advice from many people. Oddly enough most of the advice was for you to take care of yourself. Yet, you are too narrow/ weak minded to act upon said advice. Instead you persist in attempting to control the situation you are in. You ask the...

    I Need Help With This Girl!

    Her bad behavior is no excuse for your bad behavior. Why is it OK for you to be so rude and manipulative? You are the one that is asking for advice. You are the one wanting to know what to do. If she were asking, I would tell her that the situation was unhealthy and point out what she is...

    I Need Help With This Girl!

    The passive aggressive/ guilt tripping statement you made would have probably gotten the same response from me. You sound as though you are trying to manipulate her. I don't know if you are doing it subconsciously or not, but it's a classic manipulative statement. From her response it seems...
