    looking for advice

    Hi everyone I was wondering if this looked like it had familiar themes to anyone. I found it when going through my old stuff from therapy and can’t remember what she said about it #DissociativeDisorder #OCD #IntrusiveThoughts

    What is this thing called "Hope"? #seekingknowledge

    What is this thing called hope? Yes, this is a serious question. What frame of reference do you use to explain something to someone who has never know or seen hope? We liken the situation to finding a single Waldo in a swarm of people who all look slightly like Waldo. But none ARE Waldo.

    We are, at this point, 47 days into our 2 new Antidepressants, 21 days into our Antipsychotic and no change other than we sleep an added 1 to 2 hours a night. We are grateful for that. Our meds are increased every 2 weeks. I, since none of the other want to attend at this time, do video chat with at least 3 Doctors every week. The all tell me that hope will help us in this wait and see pattern we currently find ourselves stuck within.

    We believe that everything in our universe has a counter balance. Night has Day. These are concrete, provable, repeatable facts available to establish what distinguishes Night from Day. Where "Hope" along with, it's 1st cousins the other emotions and "feeling" are all abstract concepts not grounded by facts.

    What reference points does one use when trying to describe abstract concept of "hope" to one who has never seen or experienced it in their lifetime. How would you describe colours to a person who has never seen them? We have as little insight into what "hope" or any of the "emotions" are, at this point. What is this thing called "Hope" and where do we find it?

    Who We Are

    Hello! My name is Adrian and I am the host of our system. We have 21 members (including myself) as of 03/25/2022. I don't like thinking of myself as "a person with a system" because that feels like I'm invalidating our alters, who are just as much real people as I am. I'm an alter too. Just because we all see me as the 'core' or whatever, doesn't make me more important than them. It isn't easy dealing with everyone, but I really do care about them. We're unsure whether our symptoms match DID or OSDD, so we call ourselves 'questioning' #DID #DissociativeIdentityDisorder #DIDSystem #osdd #osddsystem #DissociativeDisorder

    PTSD support notice Pop up

    Hello, Does anyone know how long the membership review is for the PTSD group. Does the continued popping up of the notice to check out this group mean I will soon be accepted or is that a usual thing.

    triggered...sigh

    Tired of being triggered but glad I can recognize it now. Suicidal thoughts are abundant, self-harm thoughts are abundant, but I have therapy coming up in a couple days, so I keep reminding myself I can talk about it and get whatever help I need at that time. This helps me make it through each day unharmed.

    I use the term "crazy" to define how I feel some days. To me, crazy means my thoughts are running around my head faster than the speed of light, I am dissociating in general and probably experiencing derealization, my memory is shot, I am unable to concentrate or focus on anything at all, I'm having visual and auditory hallucinations, my mental illnesses are all competing to be top performer of the day, but I'm aware enough to know I am not able to function and then I start feeling depressed because I am a waste of resources and not worth living.

    But I have therapy coming up in a couple days, so maybe I'll tell my therapist about it. Probably not, but it's enough to keep me going, pushing forward, or maybe just sitting still for a while, getting some rest before taking the next step.
