    Valerian Root

    Sorry for being so lazy.. I looked at past posts on this herb, and couldn't find what I was looking for. There seems to be many here that have experience with herbals. So, my question is.. How long is it safe to take Valerian root for sleep problems? I currently take Trazadone and find...

    Hello, I'm Suzie Q

    I have recently been experiencing some symptoms that lead me to believe that I might have to do more trauma work concerning my past sexual abuse issues. I have worked hard over the years on them, but apparently something else needs to be processed. I remember the posts on another forum talking...

    What A Rush!

    Well here I am at my parents house trying to spend a holiday week with them and family from Texas. It was really good to see them since it had been over 20 years and the cousins are grown now. Last time I saw them they were toddlers. They have grown up nicely!! I was going along enjoying...

I guess I just got to a place where my ability to protect myself (in my bubble of safety!) and being tired of feeling like a victim caught up with me. It must be true that as...

    My spouse has noticed my extra long computer sessions of late and wondered what I was doing. I explained that I had found a new place to process new info on my PTSD. He asked why I didn't ask him for help. I explained what I had learned, on the forum so far, (which has been bunches). I knew...

    Why Are There So Many Members That Don't Post

    If you are in pain, I would think this would be the place to start your journey. I have seen many here with therapy histories and have read a couple hundred threads of persons who have posted and they seem to be saying the same're in a place of healing, we can help. So many that...

    Looking For Experience, Strength, And Hope

    After posting two entries, and receiving immediate responses to both, a ray of sunshine came into me. I really first believed that if I opened up a little about myself that no one would really give me any feedback. I don't know why. I have always tried to trust in the process, and most of the...

    Can There Be Quality Of Life With PTSD?

    Hello everyone! What a great idea to have a forum for those of us who suffer with this disease. I ran across this site while looking for more information on depression. I have been having terrible mood swings lately and know the importance of keeping up with the medications and symptoms. I...
