      No problem, sounds good, honest I'm not doing so great and almost everyone has covid so yeah it's sucks and family are starting to annoy me.

    3. BrightSide

      BrightSide

      @Free2Flyoh no, did you get it too? I really hope all of your symptoms stay mild! :getwell: 

      It must be hard all cooped up together, keep coming here for company and distraction, video call and phone other friends and family so that you do not feel so trapped and stuck talking to the same people.

      I don't really know, at night time I get like flem on my chest but during the day I'm usually fine, it's a very strange virus cause one member of the family had symptoms for two days then all of a sudden their better again, but yeah definitely a strange virus.

      It is hard, mainly cause certain siblings can't go a day without annoying someone, so far we've only had one person that's been cleared so they can go out place everyone else in the house has to remain in.

      I don't oftenly talk about it but one of my hobbies is radio communications so hints I can't go out places I just sit and talk on the radio, I don't really have any friends I can video call but yeah that's how it's been here.

      Hopefully all is good in your town and home 🙂.

  10. I AM going to find me again. Today Im not having any of it, I accept how things make me feel with compassion and Im fighting back! I guess it is going to be a new me, one that is honest with herself and those close to her about her pain. This is not going to take me down with it - HE does not get to win!

  13. "You're so mean, when you talk about yourself, you were wrong, change the voices in your head, make them like you instead.
    So complicated, look happy, you'll make it, filled with so much hatred, such a tired game
    It's enough, I've done all I can think of, chased down all my demons, I've seen you do the same, oh

    Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel, like you're less than, less than perfect
    Pretty, pretty please, iIf you ever, ever feel, Like you're nothing, you are perfect to me"

      Love it, thank you for sharing!  I have heard that song but didn't realize those were the lyrics.

      I've "made that wrong turn once or twice...

      I often resonate her lyrics. Thanks for sharing them. They do have such a real and powerful meaning.    

  14. Shame.

    Everyone has it.

    No-one wants to talk about it.

    But the less we talk about it,

    the more we have it.

      Thank you for your support @Free2Fly, I feel safer than ive been in ages. I feel more in control and able to get away from him in my constant flashbacks and nightmares.

      I'm glad you can feel safer, hopefully it gets to a point where you don't have flashbacks and nightmares anymore.

      Zoloft hasn't given me any side effects necessarily either. This might not be a good choice, but I cam considering weaning them off. I have been on them for over a year and I dont think its helped. However I am only speaking for myself. I encourage you to see how it works for you and determine if its right. And that takes time

      Thank you Fieldy I had a more positive night after being given a coping strategy for nightmares and flashbacks in therapy that actually helped me, maybe this is my way back. I hope so.

  18. Just a thought....
