I'm glad this thread has been revived. I'm been very busy the last couple of months. My father-in-law died, and I went to Georgia to help settle his estate. I'm back in Montana now, after driving a...

Hi. How's everybody doing? I'm OK, just stressing out a little about a long string of visitors headed my way, including my father. He's one of the sources of my childhood trauma, so needless to say,...

papa de angel: I googled dissociation after your last post. I guess I don't tend to dissociate very often. I have had a sort of "out of body" sensation every now and then. I'll feel like I'm...

MittensKittens--I don't know a lot about medications for PTSD. I think antidepressants are pretty common. That's what I was offered last fall, when I came very close to hospitalization. I don't know...

Papa de Angel: Can you describe your DW's state? I'm not exactly sure what you mean by dissociation. Is she distant? Or is she reacting in ways that go beyond what's happening at the moment?

Hi. I don't have any advice about working with a partner with PTSD. But I think it's wonderful that you're open to it. My DH is unsupportive, and it makes it a lot harder for me than I think it...

Hi, how's everybody doing? I've been pretty stressed out lately (what else is new). My daughter's having surgery tomorrow. I tried to join the PTSD support group here in town, but it's "closed." I...

Hi, MittensKittens. It sounds like what you're going through is pretty intense. I can't imagine having to prove one of my children is mine. Why is CPS involved? Is it just that they see UC as bad? I...

I was going to say something along those lines. Complex PTSD and Borderline have a lot in common. I'm wondering how many of the people posting here experienced childhood trauma. I know I did. And...

Hi. Sorry I keep disappearing, things have been really tough around here. My husband has gone back to work--he's a contractor, and didn't have any work over the winter. So I'm here with the twins...

Actually, coming close to losing it when your husband leaves for work sounds pretty familiar to me. And I've been driving my DH nuts calling him at work (he's a roofer, so he's usually someplace...

Like you, I've never been formally diagnosed, and BPD sounds closest to what I've got going on. I never really considered Bipolar 2 until I started taking St. John's wort a few months back. A...

Hi MittensKittens. Things have been going pretty well--until today. So I guess it's the same old roller coaster. Lots of stress, here too. Wish I handled it better.

A change of scene usually does me good. I like to be alone--I need to be alone--but with three young children that's impossible a lot of the time. I run, which is probably the best thing I can do if...

I think PTSD affects all of my relationships. But parenting is the area that concerns me the most. My children didn't ask to have a mom who's in some ways incapacitated. I tried to warn my husband,...

St. John's wort is not recommended if you're nursing. I AM nursing, in fact, I'm nursing two. But they don't nurse a lot these days. I had to make a choice: SJW, the Zoloft the clinic in town was...
