Thank you for asking that question.
My answer is no.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

Mentally-ill DUmpmonkeys always write loooong, rambling, disjointed posts. It would be so appreciated if they could stop beating around the bush and simply leave a nice concise suicide note, but right up until the last moment when they finally do the world a favor, they persist in these boring, endless, whiny diatribes.

DUmmies, especially the real nutjobs like the one currently hanging around here, are a lot like zoo monkeys. They're entertaining as hell when you go to the zoo, to their little island surrounded by a moat. You can watch them chase each other, gingerly wade into the water to retrieve a peanut, play with sticks, and toss crap at each other. They're funny and enjoyable.

But if you come home to find a zoo monkey swinging from your draperies, climbing on your china cabinet, it's another thing altogether. Their incessant noise, their offensive behavior, and their overpowering odor make them not the least enjoyable. They instantly become pests, vermin. But to the monkey, that's all just normal. Thank goodness they rarely last for long.

Lorelai- reality check.  It's time to stop.

We are strangers to you, and reasonable people do not talk about their mental health problems, medications, or sexual abuse history with strangers. Talk to your doctor, your pastor, your husband/boyfriend/girlfriend, your cat*, or your mother about these things- but not strangers on the Internet.

I know that you share this kind of thing with the drooling morons over at DU, but this isn't DU. There is are several reasons the rest of the world has the low opinion of DUmmies that we do; going into inappropriate detail about your mental health is one of them. Expecting affirmation of it is another.

*It's OK to talk to your cat. It's not OK to expect it to solve your problems.

I have to agree with Big Dog on this. I've known people on this forum for almost 10 years in some cases and most do not know anything about the things I've been through since I have not shared it with them and like others there have been some doozies that hit me over the emotional head like a sledgehammer. I consider it private business and I deal with anything that has affected me privately although I might as a point of reference discount things I see DU posting by postulating that others have been there too to show just how ridiculous the martyrdom is there. For example, LFR and the tornado, when people here have been through hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, and many of the military have done that on boats rolling around in the water or fully exposed to the elements while on duty protecting this country and its interests. If for no other reason, I don't know why anyone would want to share their vulnerabilities like that with just anyone. I would think folks would want to keep that with people they trusted to handle their fragility and vulnerability with some love and care. Just another way of looking at things...

Well said and very true.

Amen, jty--aside from a few things I've shared here over the years, most people here (even those of you on FB) see very little of what goes on in the lives of me, Scoobs, and the kids.  Girl has a new haircut?  Great.  Unloading my deepest darkest thoughts or experiences?  Not even close.

I've experienced more than most, less than others.  What I've seen and done makes me who I am.  When I start dwelling or living in the past, I stop growing.

I refuse to do that.  I've been lucky that I do not have PTSD, nor do I really believe I've been exposed to the kind of situations that would tend to lead to it.  As has been stated elsewhere, people who REALLY have the condition don't brag about it, or even talk about it much.  Amber is dysfunctional and needs help, to be sure, but PTSD?  Not even close.

lorelai...if any of this is true just please make sure that you are actually getting real therapy and not just someone feeding you pharmaceuticals and ringing the cash register.

My gut feeling is that you will get better "treatment" just hanging out here,asking questions and listening to the answers from regular people that have all endured hardships but never once let them define their life or kept them from rising above.

Yup.  I've revealed some stuff about me, to people I trust, on here--not much, though.

PTSD?  Gotta agree with Sparky--not even close, from what I understand of PTSD.

I understand that some of this has been addressed by other posters, but I wanted to respond directly to you.  I want to make clear that I am not piling on.

Because I was trying not to post a ton as you guys are at least temporarily allowing me as a houseguest.  I apologize.

Unless you decide to shit in the sink, drag your ass across the carpet, and wipe your private parts with the drapes, you will encounter no problems at CC.  The fact that you haven't been shown the door for being a DUmp democrat should have told you that.

I'm sorry if somehow I've offended you by trying to let people know who might read this thread and be dealing with the trap of benzos prescribed in good faith by their doctor and taken in good faith) to deal with particularly nighttime "PTSD" issues a treatment that made a world of difference for me in one of my primary symptoms.

Two things:

1.  If you ever "offend" me, there will be no mistaking as to the what, where, when, why, how and my suggestions for remedy.  For the record, it takes a lot to "offend" me, unless it comes to matters of active duty/veterans.  

2.  This thread is not the place to tell everyone your success with nighttime "PTSD" treatments.  If you wish to pass on your secrets for success, find the proper forum and start a thread.

The quoted sentence was an attempt at an emotional brush-back pitch.  I'll let you know now that those don't put me in a sudden defensive posture, I've survived too many teenage drama queens to let it.  IE, I don't tolerate passive/aggressive behavior very well, and I damn sure expect better from an "adult".

Quote
Yes, I have.  

Then, why haven't you done it?

Quote
It's a blood pressure pill, pure and simple.  When taken at night, it reduces the affect of adrenaline rushes that can occur during nightmares and particularly the ones that cause night terrors.  

So you're depressing your system before you go to sleep?  That doesn't strike me as being a very smart thing to do.

Quote
I assume, at least, you mean how hard you have been hit, not how hard you hit.  

No, I didn't.  My words were very clear and concise.  Anyone can "hit", how well one does in life is a matter of how hard they can be "hit" and keep pushing forward.  You have to be able to withstand damage when it is delivered or you will never "win".

Had I meant what you said, I would have said it.

Eh, I was pretty new when I posted that rant about everyone jumping on conspiracy theories about Sarah Palin's apparently miraculous and therefore impossible conception late in life.  I didn't get banned.  ;)  I also started up in primary season in 2008 as a Hillary supporter.

Good thing you didn't bitch about obamacare, you might have been one of the victims of a good, old fashioned chain drag around $kinner's internet Mogadishu

That, my dear, is a link to the grave dancing on a 10 year DUmp veteran that your Einsatzgruppen found to be having impure thoughts.
