Root Canals And Dental Traumas

Posted by SFChristianGirl in SFChristianGirl's Blog, 28 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Hi everyone.

Ok. This is going to be a bit of a long story. Please hang in here with me.

I have a history of dental traumas starting back when I was a young child. My first traumatic experience involving dentists and teeth that I can remember was when I was 9 years old. This particular instance wasn't anything out of the ordinary per se, but the...


Why I'm Like This

Posted by thursdayschild in I Think, 28 July 2015 - * * * * * · 0 views

First of all, I feel like crap today. I think it's partly because I have a summer cold, but it makes my depression seem worse.

Bupropion XL was working for me, but I couldn't sleep and had horrible restless legs. So I was switched to SR five weeks ago. This is NOT WORKING. The energy boost the XL gave me is non-existent and I feel very unmotivated an...

Hi all! Well, it's been a long time since I created a blog and because of that I already wrote and published this earlier, except I deleted it by mistake. :poster_oops:

Anyway, I'm trying to remember what I wrote. Mainly it was to welcome my readers, if I get any. :confusedread: I'm going to discuss my journey, specifically now that I received my first C...


Trying A New Method To Quit Drinking

Posted by JD4010 in JD4010's Blog, 28 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I went to several AA meetings and realized that they weren't for me...it was essentially going to church on a daily basis with other alcoholics and users. I found another program that has a high success rate. It's called "Rational Recovery" and it's based on a concept called AVRT--Addictive Voice Recognition Technique. It's fiendishly simple; you simply s...

I Need To Heed

Posted by teasips in Teasips Blog, 28 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I was reading the paper.
The 'Dear Thelma' section caught my attention.
The title, 'I hate my mother to the core' drew close proximity.

I must take the advice in the reply.

"The first thing you have to realise and accept is that you are in charge of your own behaviour...
You have to take responsibility for your own actions...
If you can tell that these...


The Frame

L. broke down and fell into major depression.
In therapy he was encouraged to delve into his relationship with his parents.
Nothing bad would come up. They acted in a supportive, encouraging way all throughout his childhood and adolescence his therapist and him concluded.
So, was his depression only the result of a chemical imbalance?
L. investigated home...


Finally Got A Maintenance Med

Posted by No1Cares in My Venting Place, 25 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I actually did go to the doctor's office on Thurs when I called off. Despite being capable of working, I still had some pain from a migraine that started around Tues. They've been increasing in frequency this past year, but the last time I went to the doctor for them, she just said to stay doing what I'm doing. That would be Maxalt and naproxen.

Sad Thoughts

Posted by qwerty21 in qwerty21's Blog, 25 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I'm so lonely. I would like to have a girlfriend. I've realised that my ex-gf and I are prolly never getting back together. The thing that sucks is that if she wanted to get back together again I prolly would be fine with it cos I'm such a doormat. I would just like to be with someone though. But no-one wants me. Who would want me? No-one.

I have no purp...

I had to go to a wake a couple of days ago and the funeral yesterday. It was for an acquaintance. ive tried until I was blue in the face to hold on to this particular friendship and about a year ago stepped back and left her alone, and during that time her dad got really sick, had multiple heart failures and died, so I totally feel guilty for not being th...


One Year

Posted by Altl13 in Altl13's Blog, 20 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I just had my one year of sobriety and I thought at first that I would never make it to one year, but I did. On my one year which was June 24th I wanted to go out and use and drink. I haven't had that feeling in months, but for whatever reason I did then. I still have that feeling. I have a sponsor and I work the steps and I'm throughly honest with them a...


Coming Over??

Posted by QulaiThere in QulaiThere's Blog, 20 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

So I had a friend over my apartment last night. She had asked if she could come over and hang out. I was really awkward and told her there was nothing to do here. I've never really had anyone over for more than a few minutes that wasn't a repairman. I hate the idea of having someone over. I actually started panicking about it. I was trying to come u...

Im sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Im so sorry I couldn't be what you wanted me to be. Im so sorry that I want to tear my body open and swallow some pills.

The More Things Change The More They Stay The Same.... Holy ****aroni.... has it really been that long... lets see... I have gotten married in 2013 and had a baby in 2014.

Posted by firelife in firelife's Blog, 09 July 2015 - * * * * * · 0 views

As I was going through my previous blog entries (and deleting them out of shame), I couldn't help but notice how my obsession with keeping my love life above water was blinding me to so many things, including the fact that I wasn't genuinely happy.

In many of my old entries, I'd claim that I'd be "done forever" with the subject of my girlfriend (now ex-g...


Emotional Ptsd?

Posted by 20YearsandCounting in 20YearsandCounting's Blog, 06 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

Emotional Ptsd? It hit me like a truck this evening. Something little happened this morning that brought back memories I'd carefully stashed away. Not even vivid memories. But now I'm reliving them like they just happened yesterday. Is it possible to have ptsd just from emotional trauma? Does ptsd have to be from traumatic physical events? Can it come from events th...


Bored Of Life

Posted by justaguy13 in justaguy13's Blog, 03 July 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

I'm sure I have written about this before but I am so bored of life. Nothing excites me anymore, nothing interests me. I do the same stuff day after day. That's what happens when you are alone I suppose. I wish I had some new and exciting friends what actually want to do things rather than just go to the pub once every couple of weeks. I have just been on...
