    Server Upgrades

    I have now completed server upgrades for security, stability and performance, including forum software. A new email server is now in use to curb some issues we were experiencing with that. All fixed and running optimally again now. Its taken near 24hrs to get done, I apologise for the time I had...

    Madness, Insanity & The World Wide Web

    The editors reckon about 60% of the books info is new; out with the old, in with the new.

    Madness, Insanity & The World Wide Web

    I've found that book to be the bible for PTSD. All science, all fact, all referenced. The literal gold standard for fact. And still to this day, the fact cites that CBT based therapies are the most beneficial treatment for PTSD. So good to know we're still promoting the right things here.

    Madness, Insanity & The World Wide Web

    You know PTSD sucks when you think you're kicking arse and taking names with symptom management, then you read the latest 3rd edition of the handbook and within the first two chapters you start bowing your head with an "oh f*ck, I still do that" face. 🤦‍♂️ < massive face palm inserted!

    My ptsd partner left me - now what?

    I'm sorry this happened to you Sally. You are just another name within the long line of destruction that PTSD causes daily around the world. I'm glad to hear that you are now focusing on you, your healing. I look at my past as building blocks to my present relationship. I felt love, I felt lots...

    Madness, Insanity & The World Wide Web

    Did I tell you how over being in lockdown I am? I think we're around 220 days in hard lockdown here in Melbourne since Covid started. I'm really over it. Only supermarkets and doctors are open, takeaway coffee, everything else is shut. Online ordering things is just insane - more and more things...

    I avoid everything that would possibly be affected by my condition.

    Are you saying the traumatic event was smoking marijuana?

    I can NEVER relax

    Yes, very normal for PTSD.

    I can NEVER relax

    Based on your title, you said "I Can NEVER Relax." Emphasing the never. Yet you said you do relax at bedtime. So do you NEVER relax or do you relax SOMETIMES? My point is your thinking is very normally PTSD skewed. You're convincing yourself of the negative, yet you do know the truth, which...

    Feel like crying, but I can't. Story of my life since PTSD. I could cry before PTSD, now... nope!

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?

    This was Youtube making a change to how their embeds work. About to be fixed here. It is global and everyone has to change their software to fix the issue.

    Long-Term Therapist Skipped Town/Disappeared/No Contact

    Because you're pissing me off. Guests have the least room for nonsense, so if you don't want to be edited, post appropriately without any bullshit, otherwise it gets deleted.

    Who pays for the forum?

    One of the very long standing members... the best thing is, you're doing the work yourself nowadays for the most part, which is the whole point of the site. People doing the work themselves and not needing this place as much as they progress. Come back as needed, if needed, but otherwise keep...

    Who pays for the forum?

    Yes. Basically at the half way through the year, just want to keep the funds about the same, that way we don't end the year needing to do some massive funding drive. It just seems to work better from experience to keep it closely inline, and at the end of the year its typically no need to do...

    Who pays for the forum?

    Anonymous is not actually an option nowadays, as all transactions are manually verified by myself. Anonymous only applies to here though. I am the only one with access to payment data at Paypal, and I can only see your name, email and amount. Everything personal is kept via Paypal servers and...

    Do you need PTSD to post here?

    If I could love that infinity, I would. Maybe we need an infinity like system... oh wait, nope.

    Do you need PTSD to post here?

    That's about right too. Most people experience a traumatic event within their life that meets the criterion. It's the minority that go on to develop PTSD though. This is why we accept all who fit criterion A, PTSD or not as a result. If someone has experienced an event of such traumatic level...

    Do you need PTSD to post here?

    From the administrative and policy view of MyPTSD, no, a diagnosis is not required. Trauma that meets the level for PTSD IS required to be here. When people do not meet this OR they are new but unregulated beyond coming quickly within control of their posting behaviour, then they are moved onwards.
