After a week's stay in the pysch ward of the local hospital, I've been released. Been staying at my sister's for a few days.

Diagnosis: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Mild Cognitive Disfunction.

This shit is giving me bizarre dreams.

  • What is the PTSS from? (I though it was Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, not a disorder, hmm, hehe. Disorders are normally chemical and inherent, syndromes are more psychological).

    Remember that counseling + meds is 10x more effective then just meds! --- coming from experience. :-D
    • Hi, sorry for the delay in responding (I'm a fuckup) PTSD is what they are calling it, so I'll stick with that. ;) I had the most insanely fucked up childhood... abandonment, malnourishment, repeated sexual abuse, living on the street, mom dating a serial killer (I'm not shitting you), and much much more, topped off by getting hit by a truck when I was 18 and almost dying a couple times. A whole string of several years of insane things happening so that I was just in survival mode from age 11 on.

        Hey, you beat me out! (not that hard to do, I am officaly a well adjusted crazy!)

        I just spent a few years in therapy for 'violent tendencies' and such, LOL! And OCD, ADHD, a number of minor paranoyas (prozac for the bugs, yaah!) and all that. Standard fair stuff, I got away with a rather mild case of it all, only one legaly blind eye and all that. ^_^
    • referring back to this may be easier ;) http://slashdot.org/~Jafafa%20Hots/journal/9126
      • Meds working out for ya? I had to have mine tweaked around for quite some time even after the right meds where mostly found, hehe. Eventualy got everything stablized though (yaah!)
        • well, my therapist talked me into taking 1/3 of my depakote dose today after my meltdown... but other than that, no. Gonna probably be a couple weeks or so before I get set up with a psychiatrist to fix up my meds.
          • Yah, first getting on the meds can be a pain, ugh.

            Shit man, 'cording to the nice folks over at depakote.com the stuff doesn't have any side effects at all other then a bit of vomiting!

            Heh, bull shit. They have three informational pamplets all with different numbers. ^_^

            Yah, gotta get those meds working though. Course meds and therapy do the most amount of good. :-D

            That and a good old fashion 'Don't give a shit" attitude towards life! Wooohooo! Applied apathy man, keeping me running for awhile* now!

            *I'm not good with temporal stuff.

My idea of roughing it turning the air conditioner too low.

Working...
