  1. I hope that your appointment with your new therapist goes well!
  2. With DID, there is so much ignorance that it isn't really possible to joke about it without either 1) being DID Yourself or 2) being intimately acquainted with someone DID'd. The jokes are so off that they don't even make sense if you know how DID actually presents itself. So it really bothers me when people joke about it, because I just want to say "your ignorance is showing"
  3. Good for you! I'm so proud of you for being able to be honest with your doc about this
  4. 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.
  5. Does your doc know about your pica? It tends to cause digestive problems, even when you incorporate food-based items as well.
  6. Don't dismiss it as being internet-only, jt. It isn't. It exists in meatspace and it gets people killed.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Finally find a med that works for me - only to promptly discover that it's on backorder for at least a month >.<
  10. Do you mean books like Waking the Tiger or The Body Keeps the Score?
  11. 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. @jt07 From We Hunted The Mammoth: With the link leading to the Wikipedia page.
  13. 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"
