    I'm every day in chat, I've met so many good people there willing to help and full of ideas. The people I've met online have been more knowledgeable overall than the ones I've met IRL. Sometimes I leave IRL support groups feeling worse than when I got there. I do have one favorite one, although I can't attend because I can't afford it at the moment.

    I do enjoy my meditation groups which are close by. Nothing calms me down like focusing on my breath. It's a great way to cope.

    I have a way with words as well, I can hold an intelligent conversation. I'm a bit of a savant.

    I am classy too. I enjoy classical music, jazz and occasionally some avant-garde.

    I enjoy reading a good psychology book, I like to organize my workspace to perfection, and I possess an eye for design.

    I could use more friends so feel free to message me.

  1. Hello, anyone here has any heart problems with Latuda, about twice a month I can't breathe or breathe very constricted with Latuda. The breathing sounds like asthma but I do not have asthma. Yesterday I went to the ER and they didn't do anything just injected me with drugs and didn't tell me what they used. I am going to request records. Also, I can't sleep unless I'm on a benzo. On the Latuda instructions it says it can lead to a heart attack. I'm looking to lower my dose from 80 mg and switch to another med completely. I have been having this problem as soon as I started with Latuda about a year and a half ago.
  2. Look at Donald Trump, he's a narcissist You could be very successful as a narcissist go make movies if you want.
  3. For actually falling asleep. I recommend not having a computer or be anywhere near a computer or cellphone or tablet several hours before you go to bed. Also transcendental meditation/praying/focusing on the breath can help stop the negative thoughts at night. I'll give an example of transcendental meditation: repeating a mantra while you're in bed will work. Also counting your breaths will work. And praying will also work. It depends on the person. Scheduling worrying time and writing down everything that is worrying you an hour before can also help. You can brainstorm worries and solutions then so that you don't get stuck catastrophizing at night. http://psychcentral.com/lib/what-is-catastrophizing/0001276 Additionally, If you haven't fallen asleep in 20-30 minutes get out of bed and sit and read a book. Repeat as many times until you fall asleep. Do all this and build a consistent schedule and your problem will be solved. This is coming from someone that had the worst insomnia ever.
  4. I've solved this issue recently. The solution is to take your med at 7:30 pm every night. Go to sleep by 8 or 9pm and wake up at 7am EVERY DAY. Do NOT miss a day.
  5.     Hmm I guess men just like to be in control and have the women rear the children. I've read about this in a book about ethnicity. For example Irish men like to be hands off in the care of the children and have women handle most of it. It looks like people are used to the ways things have been and DON'T want to change.
  6.     Is it accurate? Because my therapist is using this book as the basis to diagnose me with PTSD and not Schizophrenia/Bipolar/Schizoaffective. I am concerned that he may want a triple a diagnosis PTSD+Schizophrenia+Bipolar behind it all. All the people in one of my groups have been diagnosed with different types of PTSD by this therapist. We're all weirded out by it. I've met many people in support groups and friends who have been diagnosed both Schizoaffective and with PTSD.
  7. jt07 can you post a link to the picture? I've also seen hubble photographs and they are amazing.
  8.     I would like expand on my question, I was reading an intro to a Trauma book a few minutes ago and it said the following on the subject. Quotes: "Clinicians know the priviledged moment of insight when repressed ideas, feelings, and memories surface into consciousness. These moments occur in the history of societies as well as in the history of individuals. In the 1970s, the speakouts of the women's liberation movement brought to public awareness the widespread crimes of violence against women. Victims who had been silenced began to reveal their secrets. As a psychiatric resident, I heard numerous stories of sexual and domestic violence from my patients. Because of my involvement in the women's movement, I was able to speak out against the denial of women's real experiences in my own profession and testify to what I had witnessed. My first paper on incest, written with Lisa Hirschman in 1976, circulated "underground," in manuscript, for a year before it was published. We began to receive letters from all over the country from women who had never before told their stories. Through them, we realized the power of speaking the unspeakable and witnessed firsthand the creative energy that is released when the barriers of denial and repression are lifted." ... "(Trauma and Recovery) It is a book about commonalities: between rape survivors and combat veterans, between battered women and political prisoners, between the survivors of vast concentration camps created by tyrants who rule nations and the survivors of small, hidden concentration camps created by tyrants who rule their homes." ... "This book appears at a time when public discussion of the common atrocities of sexual and domestic life has been made possible by the women's movement, and when public discussion of the common atrocities of political life has been made possible by the movement for human rights. I expect the book to be controversial--first, because it is written from a feminist perspective; second, because it challenges established diagnostic concepts; but third and perhaps most importantly, because it speaks about horrible things, things that no one really wants to hear about." Can you tell me what are the reasons that women often get excluded?
  9. I found this quite useful. So from what I gather here there is a Universal innate sense of morality for humanity. I am sure it gets modified depending on location and culture. But it is there. From ovOidampUle I would like to hear more about why women are often excluded?
  10. I am going to ask a question though, what do atheist's use as a moral compass?
  11. Thanks for the tips guys, it's time to nerd out in the quiet room at the library now lol I will say this, I heard about the 4th dimension when I also went on a manic hunt for moar knowledges. The way I explained it to my room mate was this way. I walked to the middle of the living room and I told him if a 4th dimensional being was walking in 3D space he could simply step over a wall. To illustrate it I stepped over the coffee table in the living room lol Now since we're in an atheist's thread I'm going to recommend you guys check out the Selfish Gene a book about Evolution by Richard Dawkins and the God Delusion by him as well. The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution is another good one by him as well.
  12. I recommend people read the Selfish Gene a book about Evolution by Richard Dawkins and the God Delusion by him as well. The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution is another good one by him as well.
