I don't mean to sidetrack the post but need a minute of clarification.
Raziel, I have PTSD too but I am not familiar with DESNOS...what is that?
Thank you for being so open about all this.

I finished a puzzle today, and you would not think that this would make me unhappy but when I got a look at all the pieces together it did.
Nobody likes being played for a Fool. Now I have to figure out what to do about it. (sigh)

I used to consider both my obsessions, and my stimming, as addictions, because I could not stop them. But I no longer think that's the right way to describe them in my life. Trying to evade your own neurology will always feel really uncomfortable and eventually impossible, that doesn't make it equi...

Some of you may be interested in Simon Baron Cohen's theory on Hyper Systemizing. OCD Angel...What you are doing with the spoons is probably in one of the upper levels. I seem to be a "heavy user" and it might be an "sparkle" instead of "sm...

Hope, you are unique no matter what: You are the *only* you there is. Nobody else can be you, so that's special. What makes you unique? What is right (not personality disordered) about you? I think there is probably a lot more right with you than there is wrong with you, and you can be proud of that...

It really sucks when you can't call up a friend (because they are dead) and thank them profusely for some of the best advice they ever gave you because it seemed irritating when you were following it but it probably just paid off in a major way. I have my clock straightened out. Now what will time t...

I am so glad we can talk about this here, because it's not a subject I talk about much with anybody anymore. I don't mind others using MM, and I see very good reasons for it, and defend them, but generally say "No thanks" and give some vague explanation. I have wierd reactions to meds. Some I barely...

I can't imagine how confused I would've been not having been told at an early age that this is what was wrong with me. I don't know how people live with this not knowing. Even if I kept that information to myself, at least I usually knew "oh, this problem must be for that reason." It was a really he...

I am not *really* bothered by it, but I feel it was not well chosen, at a time when they didn't fully understand what they were diagnosing with the term...and still may not fully grasp the concept of what goes on in our heads. I think "attention deficit" is another one of those diagnostic terms that...

I have migraines that are on the borderland between migraines and seizures that they call "migralepsy" and I have a friend and a neighbor who have a severe seizure disorders. I thought I knew a little bit about it nursing and then this happened and I found out they didn't teach me nearly enough. It ...

And you had these two probable seizures when? I've had two probable seizures where I've lost consciousness and convulsed. Although my medications lower the seizure threshold. During yesterday's (it's 3.15am now in the UK) episode, I remember not being able to produce English on my phone. I didn't tr...
