    Am I overreacting about someone calling me nuts and crazy?

    I am so, so sorry you have been subjected to this abuse, JMH. I'm so glad you have taken steps to take care of yourself. You are one of the least crazy people I know.? From one cool dudette to another :-).

    News Fake news

    OMG, Friday! Do you own the Oxford English Dictionary? I don't know of any other source that can pinpoint when a term came to be used as it is. If so, I am so so jealous! The reference book publisher I worked for for many years distributed the OED in the U.S., but none of us could ever get...

    Why can i finally cry?

    I hope you get a good next T. I've had four since I was diagnosed because I always gravitated toward older women. Lol, but I'm getting older and they all retired in due time. Now my T is 10 years younger than me, but she's really good. I hope the same for you!

    Yes, he is a traitor and I am really scared the he wants to let some of our people be interrogated by Putin. I do not know how he can legally get away with forcing that to happen, but just the idea that he is considering it is terrifying. What's next? We know what Russia does in other...

    Is there a relationship between ptsd and cleanliness?

    I’m the opposite, actually. I find it very difficult to touch myself, hence cleaning is a problem.

    Sigh, how many times do we have to repeat it? This is NOT illegal immigration. These people are coming from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. They leave to come because they are threatened with death and their young kids are threatened with being either indoctrinated into gangs or killed. I...

    Oh, true. I forgot after all the lovey-dovey stuff, lol. And just a word to anyone who defends this horrible policy -- and it IS a policy of Trump's; it is not law, as he lyingly claims -- I just really, really am at a loss for how anyone with PTSD can stand to see a ton of other people...

    Important points well stated, Fade. And I suppose most of them don't have cell phones with internet.

    Okay, sorry, you deserve a more precise answer. The thing is, they are facing certain death and injury of themselves and their children, so they travel 1,000 miles to get here and then are not given the traditional rights of such people seeking asylum. What would you do? Stay at home and face...

    Maybe I should start a poll -- how many Trump supporters have more than one friend of a different race? And I mean a real friend, not just people you run into from time to time, but people you have a longstanding solid, heartfelt relationship with? Because I am convinced that the antidote to...

    Um, yes they, do, per the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. It's all here: Dead Link Removed And I detect that you are beyond belief with your hatred for people different from you but who have also been through traumatic experiences. How deep does your PTSD compassion go?

    They are legally requesting asylum and our border patrol is undermining their legal right to do so. These are not criminals. These are people fleeing certain death and injury in their home countries.

    Funny, I cannot recall a time that Trump condemned other countries for human rights violations. I just remember seeing him saying in various contexts that a lot of countries kill people and we do it, too. I guess, in his mind, that makes it okay.

    Since our government won't do it, I've been writing apologetic messages to all my foreign friends, particularly at moments of especially gross behavior by this president. With this horrendous border thing going on, I am at a loss of what to say. We are violating not only international law, but...

    This is absolutely the most disturbing and heinous government action I've ever witnessed in my country in my 55 years.

    The pros and cons of using cannabis for ptsd

    I kind of wish I could use cannabis only for the nausea I often experience due to anxiety, but I last smoked it in about 1981 and it started to make me anxious, so, no go.

    I hear you, @brat17. I've been having a few of those days myself. As far as I know I just have fibro (dxed last June) and TMJ, along with PTSD. I move around and keep doing as much as I can, but some days, it just kicks me in the butt. Today is the third day in a row of this, all the way...

    There is a serious homelessness problem in the Detroit area. I know because I work part-time in that area. The tricounty metro area has one of the highest homeless rates in the US with 20,000+ homeless served counted in Detroit shelters and our warming center; this does not include those who...

    That is the most important question of our time in the U.S. right now. I wish I had the answer. The only thing I know to do is to pull rank and remind people of my career of being a reference book writer and editor whose job it was to figure out what the best sources of information are. (They...
