      Or need to run, but can only walk slow motion.  So frustrating.

  3. Getting that "walls are closing in" feeling. Just breathe.

  4. Hi Sonny, you have a very pretty username, I likes it. Welcome
  5. Nothing to add. Just have a listen.

     

  6. Saw the doctor about the flashbacks. Got given new meds. Nervous, but it's cheaper than self medicating with alcohol and nicotine. Wish me luck.

  9. "When you're sitting in a movie theatre, and you're watching the screen, you're very involved in the drama. It's manipulating your emotions, the way you feel, the way you think. It's that lizard brain and the lemur brain, you're totally caught in the drama. And then you turn around and you look at the projector, and you realise that it's just flickering shadows and light, continually changing, and suddenly you've stepped out of the drama, and you realise you're free, you've stepped out of the drama. That's how mindfulness works. What a gift that is, to be able to ignore yourself." - Wes Nisker.

      Sounds nice...

  10. Welcome. I hope you find the place helpful :3 I'm Dante, the resident slapstick sage. I like long walks in the moonlight, blueberry muffins, and snails. *shares muffins*
  11. "Sometimes I'm like, "why am I still here?" but then I realise that I'm often the only person who's around to take bad-to-eat stuff out of my dog's mouth, and I think there's this Western idea of "if you're not CEO you're nothing special," but my dog is still alive because of me, and I'm still alive because of other people, so maybe I'm just here to pet cats and wear sweaters and help people take the class out of their mouth. Yknow? Maybe I won't be CEO, but maybe I'll be able to help somebody afford their trip home, and I think that's pretty ok, yknow?"

    written by inkskinned on tumblr. I couldn't agree more. Saving lives feels less of an amazing thing than it is (I saved two last week alone and I still feel about as proud as if I do making a cup of tea for a guest :P) but it's good to remember that there are people still around to do their thing, animals still wagging their butts today, because of YOU.

      this was heartening to read for someone like me. years ago i rented a room from a neglectful woman and took care of her dog for free for over a year. i'd like to think i made a difference in max's life.

      What a lovely way to look at it

  12. Nobody's gonna judge you. If you blame yourself i recommend a thread called "a definition of consent for those struggling with self blame" or words to that effect. Tis a good read and helps a lot. You had no responsibility for what happened to you, it's all on whoever chose to hurt you. I hope in time you can let the self blame go. Welcome to the journey *hugs, if ok, and cookies*
  13. Hype should be illegal. I went into that movie with such high hopes I now feel crushingly depressed for being let down so badly.

  14. (tw) What's with all the flashbacks? Why has it started now? I'm just starting to get my life back on track a little, I've stopped drinking almost entirely, I've started to clean up my diet a bit, I'm exercising more, I'm trying to keep to a sleep schedule. Why can I not go a day anymore without remembering? Just settling down to be intimate with someone, I want to but I'm tired and not really into it, and it reminds me of when my abuser wouldn't accept no. I'm sick of this. I hope the letter comes soon from the hospital with my referral date. The thoughts of self harm aren't going away and the thoughts of a permanent escape are getting more appealing again. I have no intention but the thoughts won't shut the hell up.

      Sorry to hear you are struggling so and that the flashbacks are so strong. I hope they settle down for you soon. We need you to stick around ((hugs))

  15. Good username ^_^ Meditation? Hello there and welcome. Hope you find some good stuffs here.
  16. Ten hours to un-sprain my shoulder, or there's no fencing for Dante. No pressure, it's only the only thing that gets me through the week and chases all the demons away... *sigh*

  17. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first cliché, as they say in Chinatown. I don't really read the fortunes, I just can't get enough of those damn cookies. What was I saying? Hi! Welcome! Stuff. Mm, fortune cookies...
  18. I've just been told "he (Trump) isn't sexist or racist, do some research." I facepalmed so hard I may actually need surgery.

      guess they must not read much or do much research into anything he says or has done themselves.

      I find the people who tell others to "do some research" are often the ones who read the tabloids and believe every word they read in the news :P

      Wow.  If they don't think he is, then who do they think is?

      Did you ever try writing? It might come to you if you process. 

  20. Good results from hospital. My relapse hasn't caused liver damage. Sadly my 10 day respite seems to have ended and the black dog's back to humping my leg.

  21. Don't feel bad for the language, I tell people "fuck you" any time they tell me it could be worse, and everyone from Hitler to God himself will be told the same thing because it's a useless, shitty, dangerous thing to say. It suggests you should just accept whatever happens because it's not as bad as it could possibly be. Yes, it probably could, I could have been dismembered and left behind a skip outside a Tesco, but yknow, that doesn't mean that what happened didn't SUCK. Besides, bad is relative. I find one kind of abuse way easier to heal from than another I've been through. That doesn't m

      I understand. I can't watch police shows or anything dealing with legal drama after what I have been through. How's that for being a Criminal Justice major??? :( He ruined everything.
