I know how you feel, OP. My periods of dissociation are associated with my PTSD though, rather than BPD or other disorders. I really sympathize with the perception-of-time-being-distorted stuff. 5 minutes feeling like an hour... the worst was a period of 2-3 weeks where I was extremely dissociated, ...

redrobin I actually greatly enjoy living in low population areas. Favorite place to live so far was a village of 700 in the summer and less in the winter. One traffic light, and it was a really big deal when it got put in. I can understand it not being for everyone, though. I seemed to be one of the...

The only time I had an issue with coffee was when I was going through PTSD-related psychosis, and in the weeks after I recovered from the psychosis. My thoughts were already going a million miles per hour, and they weren't very good thoughts. Caffeine just made it worse - pretty much kicked the bad ...

Anchorage, but I used to live on the Kenai peninsula. I'd prefer to move back there some day.

Then again I kind of want to experience the outside world again. I haven't left this state in nearly 11 years.

I've always lived in South-central Alaska. Currently in Anchorage, but I used to live in a little village on the Kenai peninsula.

I never said we couldn't respectfully disagree. Castration is almost always a medical necessity, these days. Most suggestions for castration come from doctors speaking with prostate or testicular cancer patients. A few oddballs advocate for it to be used against specific types of individuals, but th...

I always need it on me, but I often am content just sitting around waiting somewhere with it in my pocket.

It's like I'm addicted to having it and knowing it's there but not addicted to actually using it as a distraction.

And I don't care if people disagree with me on any issue. I completely lack the need for validation or approval, it has been beaten out of me. I never said there was anything wrong with a vasectomy, just that I was speaking of castration, and when someone brings up a vasectomy based off of that, it ...

I would consider adoption, but single people don't have an easy time with adoption, and I have no plans on ever being in a relationship again. I also would prefer being older, and I don't think I'm quite ready to be full-time support for another human being, mentally speaking.

Marknis, it's a literal fact that castration in males reduces sex drive. Chemical or physical. Lower testosterone = less sex drive. That said, it was mainly a joke. I know most people are really attached to their genitals, both physically and metaphorically. Also, a vasectomy has nothing to do with ...

I get asked a lot: "Are you okay??"

I don't know if I look depressed or not, I just sometimes get a really blank or intense look. It's usually when I'm lost in thought, good or bad.

IMO, it's probably a bad idea to get together with someone who is that up-front with their private images. Continue if you want, but keep your eyes open for red flags. Look into her past. Court records, arrest records, find anything you can about her on social media, see if there are red flags in an...

Castration is always an option.

Life is much better when one does not desire sex at all.

I never made the decision, but I'm sterile so I am forced to never have my own children. I've been used to the idea of never having my own kids for a long time. When working, I work with kids, and I definitely am good with them and enjoy working with them, but I think I'm fine with never having my o...

I am absolutely repulsed and disgusted by sex and romance. I can't even hide my visible disgust during talk about it, or while seeing a sex/romance scene on TV or in a movie. Zero interest in men or women, no interest in relationships, and I feel better off for it.

I have PTSD and I'm currently in EMDR therapy, which is working great. I'm also in a female-only trauma sensitive yoga group, which is nice. It's like group therapy combined with yoga. Only problem is my ribcage is so messed up (thanks to my abuser) it's impossible for me to do some of the yoga, sam...
