Mental Health Issues

my girlfriend has seperation anxiety disorder

Hi FRED, Hope you are doing fine. Even though it is a late reply, I need to add something which might help you. Adult separation anxiety is a type of disorder which may cause serious problems like a chemical imbalance in the brain and depression. The risk increases if the patient is a woman. There are some anti-anxiety medications and therapies like CBT or individual therapy, which may benefit separation anxiety. My friend also had a similar problem and got CBT treatment from a mental health...Read More...

Dealing with some unknown T over the past 8 years

Hi RadicalRave, First, welcome! Second, you might want to repost your story to another subforum, either "Stories and Personal accounts about therapy" or "Questions about content on Myshrink and/or therapy" because apparently in this subforum here there are not very many posts and thus people don't read it very often and thus you just won't get the support and feedback you probably need. I did not have time to read very carefully your full story but I certainly believe that there is a way...Read More...

Chronic Dissociation

(((((Chris))))) First of all, you are going and have gone through A LOT. Second of all, THANK YOU for typing all that info, because I know that it must have taken a lot of effort to put it together right, and to even think for that matter due to the condition you suffer must have been EXTREMELY hard.. I can definately tell you are a VERY strong individual, and that you have HOPE inside you.. It's there wailing out for someone to rescue you from the UTTER HELL you're experiencing. NEVER LOSE...Read More...

Bad evening

BH, Hi...Just happened to see this post. There is no such thing as "normal". Try to believe that. Try to stay in the present also. Working through family garbage takes a very long time. I have the scars to prove it. But it sounds like you are heading in the right direction. Speaking about your pain is where a lot of the healing takes place. But try to accept that is a long, slow process. You'll see...in time you will begin to feel better, I promise!Read More...

Jealous of My Shrink

professorsnape
P. Snape, your post is very honest and a bit humorous, too, the way you let it all out. Let me say, it's really great of you, too, that it bothers you to want a married woman. I wish I could be so honest with my T. I'm sure this honesty is going to result in good accomplishment of your therapy goals! I'm jealous of my T, too, tho she's a woman and I am too, but I understand it's really not about sex. It's just that we expect any strong love feeling to be sexual because we were brought up...Read More...
FW--yes, I am going through this as we speak. I am in legal proceedings and my lawyer says it is in my best interest to have my therapy notes sent over. My T filled out a "mental health survey" on me and I had to pay $25 for the printing of 4 years of notes. Once I read through them, I didn't want to included them. Even my T said it could hurt my case if I didn't include them, as it may look like I had something to hide. Believe me, I didn't want any one else to look at these notes, but I...Read More...

feeling anxious

angelemz
When I am feeling anxious I look at my life and see if there is anything that might be contributing to my anxiety like have I prolonged something that needs to be taken care of have I been doing good self care like exercise, have I been inviting healthy relationships into my life. I used to wake up and hate life and not want to leave the house I had just moved to a new city and now realize I was taking the wrong medication an antidepressant believe it or not caused my anxiety to be worse.Read More...

Just had a quick look at this blog and it seems really good - I've bookmarked it to go read at my leisure. Thanks for the link SG, and nice to see you're still around in the background LLRead More...
I liked it! It is very interesting and thoughtful. I like your pictures, fun! and they complimented your text nicely and were humorous. :0D Editing is fun, yes? I love television and cut a number of projects too. As one editor to another I would like to make a technical suggestion, ( I am not trying to bash on your video) shorten the time the slides are on screen. They felt a little long and I believe the longer clips slow the video down. That was just my feeling. I look forward to seeing...Read More...

The pain of longing

quote: ply I know how you feel. I yelled at my first shrink the he did nothing, and I wanted to hit him too. My current T has endured a lot of abuse too. I also wanted to hit her. I told her this and she looked a little concerned, I have a history of being VERY aggressive. My psych said to me during one of my visits I was making good progress in my therapy. Really? I asked what does that mean? He told me I was much calmer and I didn't worry as much. Really? I asked my therapist what does it...Read More...

"Sick" Relationship Doomed From The Beggining

This topic was posted awhile ago but, I would like to respond in case anyone else reads this post. Before I started my recovery, codependence is one of the problems, I put up with a lot of BS in relationships and dished out a lot of BS myself: he cheated, I cheated, I was in open relationships ( a least I thought they were open), one guy even married a woman behind my back and I STILL kept seeing him. I now realize my fears which were: I will not find another, this is the best I could do,...Read More...

Hi Beebles - This is from Wikipedia on CCHR: "The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is an advocacy group established in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and psychiatrist Thomas Szasz.[1][2][3] The group promotes several video campaigns which support views against psychiatry. The organization holds that mental illness is not a medical disease, and that the use of psychiatric medication is a destructive and fraudulent practice.[4] The CCHR continues to be entirely controlled by and...Read More...

Dissociation and self harm

quote: Originally posted by fear holds me captive: I really don't understand this whole concept on the more you talk about the trauma the better things will be. For me after a appt with my T I have the worst nightmares and flashbacks. I sometimes wonder right now if this will ever end. Before my accident I was a normal person and now I feel like I am crazy seeing things that no one else can. I know I self harm during some of my really bad times but I don't remember doing it and the only...Read More...
