  1. I'm so sorry that this happened to you. You did the right thing reporting it. How are you doing today? I hope your sleep is improving.
  2. I can very much relate to your feelings of wanting to end things, but being concerned for your kids. I was in that place very recently. And may be again at some point. I think what has started to make a difference for me has been working with a new therapist who knows how to help me. My point is, things can and will get better if you stick around and keep trying. And believe me, I know how hard that is. I also wanted to say I appreciate that you were so honest and well spoken on this subject. I think there needs to be more constructive discussion on suicide, and ways to get through those times when you feel hopeless.
  3. I met my safe people at a time when my social anxiety was not so severe. Unfortunately, I have alienated some of the friends and family that were my safe people as my anxiety has gotten worse.
  4. I have two safe people. One, I live with, and the other lives in another state. Even with safe or safe-ish people, I still need time to recharge after being around them. Nothing personal, I just need solitary time.
  5. I don't judge anyone who works that job, but I will say, I was a server in a strip club and it wasn't for me. Too many men putting their hands all over me. I'm sure some clubs protect their employees from that, but not the one I worked at. It was the norm that if you wanted your tip, you had to let the customers feel you up.
  6. I can relate. Like said above, it is not your job to educate them. I remember trying early on with some people and hitting a brick wall. I am very selective on who I open up to now, and just ignore the rest.
  7. Thanks for all the input. I appreciate hearing everyone's experiences and perspectives.
  8. That makes sense. I'm worried because when I've been honest with my doctors they threaten to hospitalize me. I want the help, I just don't want to give up my free will because I don't feel that would be helpful.
  9. I don't want to trigger anyone, but what if they are holding you because you have attempted or plan to suicide. Does that take away the patients rights?
  10. Under what circumstances can doctors medicate you against your will? I'm particularly interested in knowing if I am involuntarily hospitalized, can they force me to take meds? I'm not against meds, btw. I am medicated right now, but want to know if they can force me to take something I don't want during an involuntary hold. Thanks.
  11. I'm so sorry that happened to you! Definitely look into an attorney. This is exactly the kind of thing that keeps people from reaching out when they need help, or just to vent. Your friend was wrong, wrong, wrong.
  12. I can handle and prepare pre cooked meats like hot dogs or frozen chicken nuggets for others without problems. I just wash my hands afterwards. I refuse to handle raw meat, and if someone else in my house does, I follow them around the kitchen with a bleach rag, and make sure they don't dig in the silverware with raw meat hands. My family just rolls their eyes and tolerates me.
  13. It would depend on if you are after long term therapy, or a more brief course. If it were me, I would find someone else. I require long term therapy and it takes a while for me to trust a tdoc enough to have a good therapeutic relationship.
  14. I dislike Christmas, too. It's hard to ignore when the Christmas decorations are already in the store right next to the Halloween decorations. I'm totally dreading it, and wish it was avoidable, but I have family who Christmas is important to, so I need to participate.
