Sorry not sure if allowed to post, I know only a doctor or psychiatrist can help, but anxiety wise any tips with being scared about increasing your meds dose, my anxiety has been pretty severe and I might need a med review or higher dose but I’m a tad scared about side effects or in general increasing it. Thanks if possible any help or your own experience!

I don't have nightmares of the trauma very often but I had one last night that really scared me. What relaxing activities can I do before bed to reduce the likelihood of having another one? I listen to calming music before bed and last night I had a cup of calming tea but do you guys have any other suggestions? I am Prazosin for the nightmares. Your input is appreciated. Thank you.
Depression is really getting to me. Could use some words of encouragement. I love inspiring others but I could use some inspiration right now. Please leave a message of encouragement and or inspiration. I want to see how many people will respond. Thank you all in advance.
We are currently looking for a new Co-Leader for the Multiple Health Challenges group. We have grown quite a bit and just passed 1,500 members. In the past co-leaders have been golden, really helpful for me when I got sick or burnt out and had to step away for a few days. I am looking for someone to welcome new members, comment or respond to most posts or other comments, make new posts to the group every once and a while, and preferably someone who has physical and emotional health challenges so they can best relate to and understand where other members are coming from when they post or comment.
It is important for the group to have two distinctly different voices to support people because people might relate more to one of us. What is a really good situation is if we both respond to the same posts, welcome new members from different perspectives and provide voices for people that are accessible and relatable. There is a commitment needed that you monitor activities on the group regularly and can respond pretty quickly.
Offering your own posts provides more content for the group…and when posts pose a question they keep things moving forward. I can assist and support by offering to look at your new posts for feedback and editing before you post if you would like it, comment on your posts to get the responses going to best support your efforts, help finding memes or images, and support you if we are dealing with someone struggling …. Like sounding suicidal or being manic…and I will check in to make sure you are happy and comfortable!
I look at potential leaders' history of posts and/or comments that have helped and supported others in the past. Willingness to be honest and open about your own health challenges is crucial to best support people. A co-leader works together with me for some new posts and drafting new questions and is concerned about the well being of all members and can empathize with their paths.
You will get access to the Community Leaders group and your name will have a “Group Leader” tab next to it up top on your comments and responses so I think people pay attention especially to your activity and wisdom shared from personal experience. Would you consider joining me on this journey? Let’s have a DM chat to discuss this! Thanks for considering taking on this role!

You know how sometimes you have to rant to your therapist? I feel better afterward but some of the things I learn make me question things. I learned a lot about why people blame abuse victims and deny their reality when confronted with the facts. However this blatant denial of my reality is hard for me to cope with. I can accept that I have no control over other people but at the same time, I still have difficulty understanding why someone would blame someone when they didn't ask to be abused or hurt. Especially when they are aware of the facts. How can I cope with their blatant denial and their shaming behavior. It starts a vicious cycle of self-blame and self-loathing. I have come a long way in my healing journey but I cannot seem to accept this behavior. Just trying to make sense of things.
