  1. Have you ever thought, that the people who have abandoned you have a fear of abandonment as well, and abandon you before they think that you're going to abandon them? Does that make sense ?
  2. I checked out which pharm made my Lyrica. Filled out a form online which showed that I was able to get Pfizer too, I think Pfizer, to pay for my meds. I just needed my doctor to send them the form that I downloaded from their site. Very helpful
  3. You're very courageous for sharing with us. Keep sharing. Do whatever it is that you need to do to help yourself. If you need to go somewhere tonight, then do it. If you need to call 911 tonight, then do it. Call the clinic tomorrow morning if you can wait that long and find out about the crisis intervention you were talking about. Thank you for posting. Keep posting. We're here for you.
  4. Lexapro or Celexa. Wellbutrin was horrible for teeth grinding. The side of my next hurt SO bad. I was only on it about 2 weeks. I couldn't stand it. Lexapro or Celexa.

  5. Thank you all for responding. I think you're right, I didn't then nor do I now think that it was traumatic. I think it hurt me physically and that now 30 years later it's affecting my body. I appreciate the feedback
  6. Hi, I think this idea of going to a therapist together is a really good idea. I have a different perspective on your husband's depression. I don't think you're depressing your husband. I think he's depressing himself, because he feels like a failure because he can't "fix" you. Most men tend to not be as comfortable as talking about their feelings, especially their feelings regarding their partners. Men see problems, All different kinds of problems as their job to fix them. Your husband has not been able to fix you. He is having failure issues. But it's not your fault. He really does need to see if therapist. I think it would benefit you both greatly. ^this is just my opinion^ >^^<
  7. I'm proud of you! You posted even though you're afraid. That's big ??
  8. "The fragmented sense of self" is something that tugs on a memory from 2002. I was 39 years old and I had just finished having an EMDR session. Up until that point I had been living under the false memory that I had not been abused as a child, sexually. I knew that I had been physically and mentally and emotionally abuse, but I would bet the farm that I hadn't been abused sexually. Apparently when the flashes started coming back and I realized what was happening during the session it felt like that all of my inside organs were being pulled through my back (I was laying down) and I couldn't breathe. The psychotherapist said that I had a dissociative disorder, which meant that parts of myself had fragmented off so I could cover in or fill up all the nasty bits of memory and forget about it for 39 years. split wasn't a term being used at the time. But that's just my experience which of course is very limited.
  9. Hi, the stress in my neck and my shoulders have been absolutely crazy for the last couple weeks. I was able to get into see a friend of mine who does massages. She had been working on my neck and my shoulders and telling me how freaking tight they were and somehow we started talking about a place in my upper back that's a little bit messed up. She asked me what happened and I told her that I had been crushed by a forklift in 1987. I was 25 at the time. I was young, I was in good shape, and it really didn't affect me one way or the other. I didn't feel emotionally or physically hurt. She asked me if I had been to therapy before, and I said sure for my childhood. She said, no I mean about the accident. I told her that I didn't really feel like a trauma had occurred. She said that she thinks my head and neck stuff are all related to the trauma associated with the accident. I'm not sure how to phrase this question, but have you ever had any psych therapy done for something you didn't realize it was a trauma? Did it help? Thanks
  10. Hi Kirby, If it was me, I would sit her down and ask her if she's going to feel more stressed out because she's worried that I'm going to cut or if she knows that I'm thinking about cutting? And then whichever answer she gives you just go with that and don't overthink it. I'd say that I was sorry that she found your stash, but maybe her finding it is going to help you get through when the voices are a little too loud and you feel the urge. ^My opinion only^ >^^<
  11. What is TRD? The only thing Google has is Toyota racing department, LOL
  12. Are you in a clinical trial? Or is it more widely accepted in psych meds for treatment resistant depression and BPD?
  13. After cuddles (unless one of you happens to fall asleep directly after sex, it has been known to happen, lol)
