    Trying to deal with the return of feelings

    Just needed to talk to people who can understand and hoping that writing about this stuff will keep it from becoming too big. I don't have family support so talking with them never gets me anywhere except for feeling worse. So back in my past I was date raped and did a lot of self harm, drugs to numb, and attempts, I did go through therapy (therapist has retired) and all has been ok for awhile, but recently in school we have been talking about rape and all of a sudden I am feeling like I am trying....

    I was recently in the ER and was wondering if a CBC and differential and/or a Comprehensive metabolic panel can test for Trazodone in someone's system? If not, what test is required to test for Trazodone? Thanks. Donna

    Traumatic event & bronchitis link?

    I was recently sick with bronchitis and nursed myself back to health with a lot of Vicks products. I have been feeling fine for the past week but just yesterday was sexually harassed and have been dealing with the trauma from that. Within the past 24 hours my cough has been returning. I was wondering if there's a link between the mental trauma and maybe the lowering of my immune system, causing me to return to my illness? Or if I'm just getting sick again and connecting two things that don't....
  • My parents won't allow me to be diagnosed with Aspergers.

    So, for a long time, I've had issues, and when I was 12, I attempted suicide (due to depression). Before I was let out from a week long stay in the hospital, They required me to begin seeing a therapist and psychiatric once a week. I got diagnosed with depression and anxiety and I was on meds. I kept seeing the therapist and after about six months of observing me and my behavior (I'd always had some things that were different but I just thought it was me), she asked me to take a small test....

    Absolutely no recollection of opening a can of tuna right in front of me

    So this morning I woke up, was still very sleepy as I headed downstairs to routinely give my dog her medication. Every day I open a new can of tuna to hide the dogs medication inside of it. Although this morning my sister was in the kitchen beside me and I was talking with her, just usual chit chat and I said "let me see if there's tuna left", to which my sister replied "What? You have one right there?". I said "how long has it been open (thinking someone opened it last....

    Need advice-non diagnosed Autistic Spectrum

    I have custody of two grandchildren (out of six). Both have issues but the one I am concerned with most likely has Autism Spectrum issues. She is currently 14. I had to agree to homeschool her this year as she shut down in school last year because she feared going into high school. This was not the first episode at middle school. She had no issues in elementary until just before she transitioned to middle school. The first few weeks were hard but she managed to make some friends and was at least....

    My thoughts are transmitted for real

    I've been suffering from real thought-broadcasting for a long time. My thougts and all five senses are transmitted to others for real, like uncontrollable telepathy. It is not thought-broadcasting in schizophrenia. Medications for schizophrenia haven't worked for me. Do you have any idea how to cure it? I'd really appreciate it if you could help me. Thanks.

    Anti Anxiety medicine/teas and drug test

    Hello:) I am due to undergo a drug test in about a month, maybe sometime during the last two weeks of February. After hearing that certain anxiety meds can give false positives on the drug test I'm just a bit worried. I have never used pot or illegal drugs of any kind. I have however, been taking fluoxetine for the past four years, and just stopped around September, but took the about 40 mg I had left around the week of Thanksgiving. Does anyone know if the meds would still be in my system by....

    How much St. John's Wort to take?

    Bought a bottle of St. John's Wort from rite aid and was wonder by about the dosage. They are 300mg pills and the bottle says to take one a day. Everywhere else it says 2 or 3 a day, so I wasn't sure if there was something different about he rite aid brand or if I can take 2 day. Also, do I have to consulted a doctor before taking them, since they are otc and I am not taking any medications that would conflict with it. Thanks
