    Having Weird Dreams. All Of Them Different, But All Taking Place At My Childhood Home

    First, l would like to take the time to apologize for my behavior on this site last week. I wasn't having the best of days when I so rudely "attacked" some of you in here. That was never my intent. I took things personall and I probably shouldn't have. I would never intentionally try to harm...

    Is Your PTSD Keeping You Up At Night?

    My frustration was not about following or not following the rules. I know how important rules are to have on a site like this one. It was the fact that I was not personally warned against not capitalizing my posts. I admit that I missed that part of the rules of the board when I joined and I...

    Is Your PTSD Keeping You Up At Night?

    I Have A Feeling This May Be My Last Thread, But This Needs To Be Said I admit that I missed the part of the rules where capitalizing is required. I apologize for that, but if you take it upon yourself to take the time to capitalize my posts without telling me about it, how am I to know I was...

    Is Your PTSD Keeping You Up At Night?

    Even though I have had a good therapy session recently, I still find myself awake almost every night. I think the earliest I have gone to bed since my accident was around 11pm. It's now 2:15 am here and I am wide awake, with my mind racing. It'll probably be around 3am or so, like usual, that...

    Do You Dwell On Your Past?

    People who judge those of us with PTSD have no clue what it is like and how hard we fight every day to overcome it. It is not dwelling on the past, but looking for ways to make our lives better because of the horrible things in our past. When trauma happens to someone, it's a terrifying...

    2nd Therapy Visit

    I had my second visit with my counselor today. I am still a little bit nervous about some of the techniques that she will be trying soon. So far, it's been the usual " how do you feel about this? are you angry? why are you angry? how do you feel about so and so? why do think you feel this way?"...

    OBGYN Fear

    Cutting Off Family

    I stopped speaking with my mom a few months before my son was born 3 years ago. She was the type of person who would say one thing to your face and then say something different to others to make you look bad. She would sometimes loan me money when times were rough for me and say it was because...

    As Close To Death As I Ever Wanted

    Hello again, I just wanted to take the time to thank those who replied, very quickly, to my post. It's a nice feeling to know that I am not alone out there and to know that my feelings are normal. I have always been the typical guy, feeling like I can get over anything on my own. That was, of...

    Car Accident Has Left Me Feeling Helpless

    Hi, I am new to this site. I've been told by my doctors and physical therapist that I should probably seek some counseling, but I am a little bit afraid to go. I was in a bad car accident back on 6/12/08. I was out shopping with my son and was driving home. I was about 4 miles from my house...
