  1. It's good to hear you've got that safety net, too. I know two people irl, but we aren't very close or anything. Good luck with SGA!
  2. Hey all, I'm on SSI. I often feel guilty and very alone in this, and I'm making this post because I want to know I'm not alone in this. Thank you.
  3. Yikes! That does sound rough, physically and emotional. I honestly hope things get better for you. Feel free to message me anytime if you need anything. Sending you some love. <3
  4. I think you hit the nail on the head--she hadn't heard about it in that form. I'll check out the Sopranos then! Yes, I know all too well about TV shows letdowns... I hope Game of Thrones doesn't end up that way. :/
  5. That sounds about right. I figured it just an idiosyncratic panic attack. I haven't seen Soparnos! Is it worth watching? I assume you'll say, "yes!" and, yeah, I've brought it up to pdoc, but she thinks it's mostly anxiety and a panic attack, although she seemed a little prexpled on how I described it. Maybe I pharsing things oddly or vaguely.
  6. Hey everyone, I would like to first start off by saying I'm diagnosed with SZA, GAD, and PTSD. Secondly, I have these (what I think to be) panic attacks from time to time. They always happen at night, but they don't happen that often. I feel like I'm losing my mind, my brain is screaming at me, the world is enclosing in on me, everything is warping and breathing, totally dissociated, can't sit still or lie down and it feels like shadows are crawling over my body. I've had akathisia before, and I know it's not that--I don't feel stiff or like anything is grinding into me. Is this normal or abnormal for a panic attack? Or is it something more?
  7. I go to the bathroom a lot more when I'm anxious, and I tend to hid in there longer as a safe-space of sorts.
  8. Yes, like a roaring fire in my head and sometimes throughout my body.
  9. The psychotic depression for sure. It hurts deep inside, and I've lost complete insight.
  10. Everybody is different. What works for one or a group may not work for another. I definitely understand where you are coming from, because I honestly couldn't find any real value in therapy. I've been nearly my whole life and, just the other day, we hit on something: i think too much about how I should feel about something instead telling the therapist or myself how I actually feel. That feel great and cathartic. Maybe that could be issue for you, too? idk I wish you the best of luck in finding the therapist you deserve. There are some resources that are just a Google search away that can show you therapist in your area and their personal philosophy on approaching the therapeutic process.... Maybe you can find one that you would think would be a good match. I hope you do.
  11. I take PRNs (Klonopin & Vistaril), but I take them at the time same time when all the anxiety hits. I'm supposed to split them up during the day as my pdoc ordered, so I definitely need to talk to her about that.
  12. I'm a quasi-recluse. First thing in the morning right after I take my meds, I can go to the store and stuff, but that's about it. My anxiety gets worse and worse as the day goes on and even answering the door for a package is hard for me. I'm definitely turning into a full on recluse.
