PTSD and life

PTSD and life

I really don’t know how to ask this. Or even say this. After almost a year out of a domestic violence life for 13 months,I’m still in bad shape! Idk know myself. Meds they have me on don’t help. Then also I struggle with not wanting meds because I don’t want to have to depend on a chemical to make me happy! I miss happiness,joy. Laughter. 88% of the time I wish he would have killed me instead of leaving me like I am... dead inside! I recently started back to church.. even I feel like that don’t… read more

Apperance

Apperance

Does anyone else really really hate seeing themselves? I hate seeing my own reflection. I cringe if I see myself in the background of other peoples snap chats or pictures in general. I've never taken a selfie and will typically only even take pictures with someone else if I have been drinking.

Forgiving and forgetting

I have always been quick and glad to forgive. Well this time I am having trouble forgetting. As a lot of you know I had sever depression with psychosis ideations.

What are some activities/hobbies you indulge in that help you with boredom?

What are some activities/hobbies you indulge in that help you with boredom?

I have noticed that I have been taking multiple naps throughout the day, just to get through it. When I wake up in the morning all I think about is sleeping. I'm looking for some inspiration of what I could do to help with my boredom. My boredom makes me feel even more depressed which is why I think I have been sleeping so much.
Thank you in advance

Weight gain on antidepressants

Weight gain on antidepressants

Hi I've been on different antidepressants for years and am currently on cymbalta/duloxetine. All of them have caused me to put on weight, which causes more depression and not liking myself. I was slim and active before I started these medications. Now I feel too tired to exercise, whereas I used to be active. I've just started a new diet but find the drugs cause carb cravings and increased appetite. How do people deal with this problem? I feel in despair about it as when I come off… read more

Praying

Praying

I've been praying for years to build my self-esteem. I continue now to pray. Our physical and mental pain feeds off each other. It doesn't make the pain we have any better. Somethings from the past needs to be brought into the future like, respect of each other. Among other things. Being seen and spoken to. We need to learn or try to learn what the patient needs either mental and physical. I've felt the pain from health care members and others. I am frustrated , big time

Does anyone ever worry about what anxiety and depression meds do to their brain.

Does anyone ever worry about what anxiety and depression meds do to their brain.
