  1. hope everyone is ok and sending you love and energy. xx

  2. Thinking about you and hoping you're okay.

  3. thanks, guys appreciate ya'll sharing your experience
  4. we were having difficulties too seems to be fixed now thanks, VE
  5. not sure exactly where to put this...so stashed it here (mods please move if ya'll think it fits better elsewhere). does anyone have experience with adult protective services (APS)? we've done the google research and reading but are looking for folks who are willing to share encounters with APS. we know that there is variation from state-to-state and even county-to-county.
  6. a visit to the local cemetery to reflect on those who died: at least one from the Revolutionary War, more from the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and other wars/conflicts. taking our niece to discuss the importance of caring for the graves of loved ones and talking about why certain ones had flags by them, and what the different flags mean. church on sunday: the sanctuary decorated with each armed service flag.
  7. one of the Feline Five smells like peaches-n-cream oatmeal.
  8. starting to de-materialize: family approaching in 48 hrs. omfgs.

      tell me they did not dematerialize you all the way.  worried about you.

  9. oh yes: flowers and maybe instead of casseroles, some lovely cereal with almond milk (cap'n crunch or cocoa pebbles...or hey, go all the way, both)
  10. one day at a time, one moment at a time, one breath at a time we know that doesn't seem like much of an answer. also we've found other supports...there's an entire site dedicated to ptsd. education has been a big help to us; just realizing that *this specific symptom* is ptsd and not masking another MI dx has been a godsend. reaching out and not isolating. telling our story and helping others. we are sorry our response sounds so very inadequate. we're listening and holding space for you.
  11. ah, sorry, then. whatever your meaning, we hope that the way through becomes a bit clearer as time passes. support for your journey.
  12. re: burying head in the sand: sort of like becoming stuck in your own echo-chamber? where your own opinions/views are continuously bounced back at you? that's sort of what it's like for us Inside, when things get really chaotic being able to come here and talk about what is really going on without having to self-censor has been incredibly beneficial in learning how to reconnect with reality during the chaotic times when in-real-life supports are low/non-existent it's a trial and error process...even the errors give insights
  13. singing helps us too, confused that's why wherever we go, the charged iPod goes with us...it's become almost like a therapy animal (altho' we do wish we had an official one of those, too) ppl will usually respond more friendly-like to a well-known shared song than just our own out-right repetitive mutterings confused, have you tried even just humming to yourself? would that help too?
