As a home health care provider, you will often feel satisfaction from the work you perform. At the same time, stressful situations may occur daily. You are dealing with individuals that are suffering from PTSD, health or age related issues, which can be depressing or frustrating. If you want to provide the best level of [ ]
A conversation in another thread and current events in the US have combined to make me want to ask this question. I have never felt safe around the police, even though I don t have many big and obvious reasons for it. There have always been stories of mistreatment at the hands of law-enforcement, but the recent grand jury decisions in the Brown and Garner cases have given me real reason to think my fears are founded. I would say, though, that I h
Guys how do I deal with doctors given they ve been in many ways long-term abusers, to size of country I don t have many choice options about them, need health care & can t explain a lot of injuries? (As in I know perfectly well how & where & when I got them but can t disclose it to those people.) (Also: out of country treatment currently isn t an option / financial reasons.)

Hello, I am new to this. Not sure what to say here. I guess I am here to maybe connect with someone who knows what is like to feel like a misfit. I was officially diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorders a couple of years ago. I am not on any medications but my thyroid meds. I should be on something but can t afford any real mental health care. Anyways, that s me....
I have been having a terrible time these past few weeks with my epileptic fits. I have been shown so much love and care by so many members who really care about me and my health, I just wanted to say thankyou to you all.

I couldn t speak with the T prior to the appointment, but did speak to the receptionist who told me this person was deeply skilled for treating trauma and PTSD, throwing out the "EMDR" moniker which should have been my one of my first hints that something was amiss. Also, not being able to speak to the T directly is now a deal breaker for me. T

Hello everyone, I recently joined the forums after lurking for a day or two. When I joined, I spent much of that morning talking to a few of you in the chat room. Honestly, just connecting with other people that understand what you are going through felt made me feel better than my recent therapy sessions. I’m posting a little bit of history about myself in hopes perhaps some of you who have been dealing with PTSD and the health care system mig
I m curious if anyone here is familiar with the process of self-inquiry called The Work, which is self-proclaimed by developer Byron Katie to ~end all suffering by changing the thoughts that cause us to suffer~. While Katie is not a licensed mental health professional and her process is carefully not called therapy, her program is authorized to provide ongoing education credits for mental health professionals. I came across the process called The
Today is probably the biggest Trauma-versary for me in the whole year. Ten years ago today I was involved with the UK national response to the London Bomings that killed so many people. My involvement is something I will NEVER forget. 2 years ago today I was admitted to Intensive care with extreme and critical alcohol poisoning after my last suicide attempt. I spent a week in a coma and was subsequently sectioned to a secure mental health hospita
