Hi, new to this. Never heard of or seen this before. Not to sure what to say, In constant chronic pain have fibro, Arthritis, phlebitis, thyroid problems, migrains and other stuff including severe depression. Had what I called a high today and came done with a bang. Ok now. Apologies if Ive gone on a bit as I say not sure about this site and what to do.

I suffer pstd, and one way I cope is delibrately being aware and trying to change thought process, sorru mine is a case of waking up seeing things or just being in the dark an wide awake. But I have been diagnosed with the above. I was recommended by psychologist to listen to theraputic or relaxation tapes/cds on a daily and night badis. Also write any tjoughts that have disturbedme so I can resolve them the following day.

Yes, Baileyb, I feel that I belong here & this place I can be me in pain just as I am. Not sure my man would understand that this is just for me. Here I can learn stuff & try to salve my mental health so I do not lose it altogether. Warm welcome to you.

Thankyou Silvrry,I too are wary of showing pain or the lowest ebbs of depression. To be honest I wonder what to say, you say the same things so many times and get the same response.Someone once commented I must have taken my happy pills as I was in a good mood. Ive not forgotten that.!
Thanks for the warm welcome, its been a big step. Thanks again to chromashadow too. Hope your both coping well.
