Please let us know what you're trying. It sounds like people tried to take your power, and you got it back, and then got hit with wh...

Hey GuySmiley,

It would be great if you came back here and let us know what your experiences on the chat boards were like. I've been meaning to do that myself 8)

Your typing looks great for me. Since you are on the internet have you looked for online typing games? I found some a couple of years ago and got my typing up from 12 words per minute or so to 45. I used to be a one finger typist, but with the exercises I learned to work my keyboard like a video gam...

KS81072 & Dayfly, This is so profound, It encapsulates what I often try to say: I know that sounds cliche, but it seems to have helped, however little, for me.....I'll say it again. You are not alone In another post I compared each individual's post to a ship's course. I view an initial introduc...

Incapable, I've been posting on this site for two years. When I started I felt like you, and writing here gave me a sense of mission ... essentially I realized I wasn't alone, just like the motto, and from there I got better. When you start to feel better you find more immediate things to fill your ...

Hi HopelesslyHopeful, I've got no advice, except to say that you are doing the right things ... keep on looking for people to give you the support you need. Have you talked with your old therapist about how to approach this problem? Is the PTSD job related? There are support groups for the partners ...

nenkohai2, I believe that modern neuro-science is actually creating boxes for us. In modern society all of a sudden we had methods for curing what ails us ... Mother's little helpers have fewer side affects than the patent medicines at the turn of the century. The patent medicines were in place beca...

We all try to create meaning. It's OK to say that "God doesn't work for me." It's a different think to say that "I want to argue with you because your God won't talk directly to me." I think the best way to view Religion is as a minority branch of philosophy. There are lots of me...

Lots of binary (Either/Or, This or That) thinking in there.

I recommend a pastor or a therapist.

I am so sorry what should be a joyful transition has turned into an anxiety provoking nightmare. Those of us who get depressed at the holidays have an annual small taste of what you are experiencing now. Go to your college counseling center and see what they can do to help you find supports after co...

We all feel for you. Losing a child is so hard.

I'm glad you posted here, but I think you need to search out a grief support group.

Let me know what I can do to help.

Since you are already researching mindfulness .... Consider the relationship between past, present, future. The difference between experience and possibility. The two edged sword of obsessive behavior. I think that depression adds a chemical filter to these thoughts. I know that my intellectual acce...

What an interesting post. It is not clear to me what are the stages of cognitive development, or what are the stages of personality development. I think there are limits to what has to be physically present for these to take place. For instance, with cognitive development, it is possible to create t...

I saw an article about "truth in labeling" for prescription drugs. One of the things the article wanted manufacturers to do is tell how effective their drugs are. Think of cures for headaches ... we have tons of brands and types of delivery systems, even before we get to the prescription d...
