    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
  1. Good for you! I'm so proud of you for being able to be honest with your doc about this
  2. I think that, for me, it's a larger theme than I might be willing to admit to. However, I can find other things that I need to or can control, so that helps to make it easier. If you're ambivalent towards recovery that's good enough to give it a shot. The worst that happens is that you go back to what you're already doing anyway.
  3. I eat toilet tissue

    Does your doc know about your pica? It tends to cause digestive problems, even when you incorporate food-based items as well.
  4. Incels are Garbage.

    Don't dismiss it as being internet-only, jt. It isn't. It exists in meatspace and it gets people killed.
  5. No one here can tell you if you have ptsd or not. However, it isn't uncommon for a difficult birth to be traumatizing, and there are whole patient communities dedicated to that. As usual, it's taken doctors a while to catch up to that fact, and it's one reason why midwives and doulas are becoming increasingly common again.
  6. Backorder

    Mersyndol - useful for when the cramps are so bad that I can't sleep and just lie there moaning until it's time to get up again. Because T1 works super-well for them, but is useless for the sleeping part of things.
  7. Backorder

    Finally find a med that works for me - only to promptly discover that it's on backorder for at least a month >.<
  8. Do you mean books like Waking the Tiger or The Body Keeps the Score?
  9. Incels are Garbage.

    This one.
  10. Look at it this way: I use benedryl as a sleeping pill. However, I'm also hit harder by it than some people are. I'd say try it, but don't try it right before you need to go on a long drive as the driver.

  12. Incels are Garbage.

    It really is. This city is full of it. I'm so annoyed that they got rid of the memorial. We need it there to remind people that misogyny is deadly. Both of my countries most deadliest attacks on civilians have been done by men who resented women. Also lol at the fact that OP gets reported for "misandry" and "villainising of men"
  13. Sometimes I find DBT helpful (often more so than I'd like to admit). I also tend to find it helpful to go online to boards and forums like this one and vent for a while. Getting it out in a way that allows for positive feedback seems to help me.

    Election day today, and I'm scared. The centrist government collapsed and we have a corrupt thug running (he stole millions from his dead brother's family!) who could easily come in. Over 25% of his candidates are already under investigation for various crimes.

    1. Geek


      Yeah, me too :/

  15. Confused and scared

    Hello and Welcome to Crazyboards! I'm sorry that I couldn't read your post until someone broke it up for me. I have a dissociative disorder and it's hard for me to follow stories. It makes sense to me that you'd want to self-harm a lot after an event like that. It sounds like it was really stressful and scary, and like you don't really know what's going on any more. You're more than welcome to post about how hard it is on our self-harm board, too. If you have any questions either now or going forward, please PM the staff member of your choice. Looking forward to seeing your posts around! ~ Rosie (admin)
