Good morning, have a blessed day.
Hey mighty family, I’ve got a question, kind of like a poll for you all today. Wondering if anyone can relate to this situation.
My mother wants me to do therapy with her. I have tried therapy with my mom before and it didn’t help in my opinion. We tried a couple different therapists and I felt that I still wasn’t able to get through to her so I gave up.
Has anyone had a positive experience going to therapy with a parent? No, not couples therapy. Parent and child. Keep in mind, I’m a 31 year old woman… my mom is in her 60s.
Easily Startled/Emotional Reactivity
I know that they are both symptoms of #PTSD but they seem to be getting in the way recently. It's little things that startle me not to mention lesser known things like people being upset with me. When triggered I tend to react strongly (and sometimes hurt someone in the process). In DBT therapy I am learning to regulate my emotions but I feel like that goes out the window when I'm triggered. I was diagnosed with #PTSD in 2019 and I take meds for the nightmares but I don't think that does much for being easily startled and reacting strongly. Does anyone else struggle like this?
SSRI withdrawal symptom remedies?
Anyone find anything that helps the itchiness or brain shakes cause by SSRI withdrawal? I am tapering down as the doctor recommended and it is really uncomfortable. #CheckInWithMe
Hey, I've been in a good place lately and I've been thinking about quitting my #Antidepressants
I'm pretty sure I'm having some side effects to the medication and I've been thinking about quitting for 4 years. I'm just scared to try. The what ifs and all.
If you have any experience in quitting to take antidepressants, please share! Or any info at all about it
Hoping that theirs a more sophisticated being out there in the universe
I’m really hoping that a more sophisticated being is out in the universe watching over us. With the recent news of unidentifiable crafts by the U.S Navy or Air Force I’d say it’s very likely we’ve been observed. I probably sound nuts to some but it would actually give me great comfort knowing that we’re not alone. I just hope that they would be gentle with us mortals more so I hope that we as a species would not destroy or hurt them as we’ve done with our own planet. I’d love to have a dialogue with said sophisticated species but after all I’m just a lowly peasant of a human being. Peace everybody.

I’m terrified of other people
Does anyone else a debilitating fear of other people due to past experiences and or mental illness? You could call it trust issues but I think it runs deeper then that, I’m scared that people will come after me, I just want to be blissed out on benzos or ketamine so I don’t have to feel constant all consuming anxiety, I mean I just finished inpatient treatment and my family isn’t exactly thrilled that I called it at six weeks even though that’s over a month and a good chunk of time. I do feel like I gained a lot from that time as well. #Anxiety #PanicAttacks #Agoraphobia #Depression #MentalHealth
