    Stuck in a dark place without a path forward

    I really hope that you will be able to find the right T to help you work out all of this stuff. I've been through therapy 5 times now and I fired 8 therapists. It's hard to find the right match for where you're at at any given time. My hopes and prayers are that you are able to do this quickly...

    Can you decide to Forget?

    My wife had just the opposite problem, she had to learn how "not" to forget. Her mind repressed all the abuse and horror she lived through. In order for her to start healing, she had to learn how to hold onto those memories and build a congruent time line that she could work with. She met with...

    Bipolar Bipolar I, with severe mania, but no depression - having a hard time finding people to relate to - feeling isolated, input/advice wanted

    Bipolar disorder is often genetic. I passed it on to my daughter. I was raised in a hellhole but my kids weren't. There is no way to predict who will be affected and who won't. There are a lot of theory's but nothing I've read says this is the key. You just don't know. I understand about the...

    Bipolar Bipolar I, with severe mania, but no depression - having a hard time finding people to relate to - feeling isolated, input/advice wanted

    Hi @Sweetleaf, when I had my first hipo-maniic episode I was all of 11 years old. When I was hospitalized they mis-diagosed it as schizophrenia and medicated me accordingly. That caused all sorts of problems. I was hospitalized again a couple days later and this time they got it right. "Bipolar...

    There can only be a use of law if you are in a courtroom. However once upon a time there were norms in the Senate concerning these types of alegations. They went away with the Justice Thomas fiasco. After this, I doubt they will ever return.

    With the actions of the Senate these past few weeks we can honestly say she can be counted among the rape victims in this World.

    I thank you @scout86. My feelings come from that place where there are decent men in this world. As for what can we do to affect change in the perceptions of people. I'm not sure. I'm pinning my hopes on our children's generation, (the millennials). They seem to be more open minded and...

    I am feel like I owe the women of this country an apology. I kept my hopes alive that this creep would be kept off the Supreme Court. But the powers that be we're never going to allow that to happen. Now we have TWO Supreme Court Justices that are proven sexual preditors.

    I found him to be disrespectful, belligerent and paranoid. Not unlike the person who nominated him.

    Maybe. It's still up to Trump to ask the FBI to investigate this. I highly doubt that he will take the risk. He's got too big and ego.

    I agree @scout86. It's a sad day for all Americans. I want to apologise to all survivors of sexual violence. This is a travesty.

    There's no way Kavanaugh is not going to be confirmed. The Republican Senate has already said that. This whole thing today was just a show. That's why there were no witnesses compelled to testify. Kavanaugh said he was willing to have the FBI investigate these allegations if the Senate Chair...

    Undiagnosed Hello I am new here. I believe I have CPTSD and possible DDNOS and wanted to say hello

    First off, welcome to the forum. As I understand it your current T does not believe you have DDNOS but rather BPD. The two disorders have a great deal of overlap. Perhaps you could ask your T to explain their thoughts and then you can discuss why you believe differently. I understand this is...

    Relationship BF has PTSD and fights have been escalating - devastated and don't know what to do

    MisEcie25, yes relationships are hard, no you're just responsible for his feelings, but you are responsible for the way you allow someone to treat you. If he's going to use you as an emotional punching bag you have to decide if you're willing to allow it. One thing to keep in mind is that you...

    Relationship An Isolation Story.

    I hear the sorrow in your voice. I wish I could give you a big hug. My wife doesn't isolate any more and when she did it was for a couple days at most. I admire your support for his needs but I think that it's time to let him know that you have needs to. I hope that doesn't sound too harsh. I...

    @cactus_jack and @joeylittle, I owe you and everyone else on this thread an apology. When I wrote that response yesterday I had just come from work and where I tried to have a civil discussion about what transpired in Helsinki. The other people in the discussion all claimed that every news...
