Wow. I just spent the better part of five hours interacting (and socializing) with people ~ it's exhausting!

Time to have a snack, smoke a bowl, and take a nap!

Hey, but the basic intake stuff are things that the big baddies get screened out with.

It's also nice to hear from another introvert that gets drained from personal interaction.

I know I don't know you well Kitty, but I use to self-injure and I know how important it is to seek help when you need it. Good luck and know we're all sending good thoughts your way!

Thank you, TH. It feels good to be taking the first step, if you know what I mean.

Kitty, remember we ALL have lots of garbage that we seemingly LOVE to haul around with us through out our lives. People that actually DO something about it are loving individuals! You have to 1st love yourself to be able to love others. Get on with your life, validate yourself for & to only yourself. Time has a funny way of teaching us our short comings, to act upon those short comings is rewarding!

((Kitty)) I have bipolar, and so know more about depression than I would like. I am on meds too. Same with abusive relationships...I was not hit either, but the abuse was psychologically/emotionally/sexually, and I think it is this that sticks with us long after the relationships are over...please get help, I am getting ready to start some therapy to help correct the faulty thought patterns that my ex exploited (or created), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy...I'll let you know how it goes so you can try it if you want to.

I don't know what else I can say to help, but ((hug)) and feel free to use my ear if you need one.

I think a part of what triggered this was the Garrido case. Between that, and this conversation, something was bound to give.

Wow, that article was...chilling. I've never had anything like that happen to me, I can't imagine.

How are you doing, generally and psychologically? Is there anything I can do to help?

I understand about 'lasting scars'. People who are abusive will have you believing that you deserve everything you are getting, that you can't get any better, or that 'any better' doesn't exist. You'll believe that you somehow brought on the abuse...if you were only thinner/prettier/'better', you wouldn't be treated this way. You'll be dependent on him in some way, particularly if he has managed to 'separate' you from others who can help you (this wasn't the case with me). Your self-esteem is down to the size of a pea, assuming you had any to begin with. That is how any of the other types of abuse are allowed to happpen; once you are beaten down this much, you don't really feel strong enough to fight back, if you were inclined to do so. This is the answer to the question, 'Why doesn't she leave?'; she doesn't feel that she can, or that things would be any better if she did.

Of course, I was not married to the guy, thank goodness. But he did the same old crap like manipulating me and trying to manipulate others, practically stalking me at one point, coercing or making me feel like I 'had to' do sexual things, etc. But then, I've been told by several people that this means I gave mixed messages and therefore I can't fault him for not taking no for an answer. Um...no.

No, Kitty, No. Please, stay with therapy. I don't know how much you all have helped me, but, you all mean so much to me. Goddammit, I'd give anything to make you feel safer. Just know we care about you Kitty. Seriously.

Yes Kitty. Do keep up with the therapy. It will help you. I know it will because of everything that I've gone through since 2003. All here know the hell I've been through & still am going through.

I've never thought of this before, thanks!

Also, it would be worth it to have your thyroid checked. Hypothyroidism (under-active) can cause symptoms similar to depression...add to what is already there.

My computer was in the shop for a few weeks, guys. I'm SO glad to have my connection to the world restored! ^_^

So, yeah, I'm doing the talk-therapy thing twice a month, going to a "mood group" once a week, and ~16th of October, we're reviewing my meds.

I'm feeling... I'm not -sure- what I'm feeling, really, but it's a -good- feeling.

I've had my thyroid checked repeatedly -- it's normal. I'd love to have a concrete physical thing to point to, to be able to say, "look, -this- is what's causing me to be this way." But for me, I suppose, my depression (and associated issues) are rooted in the mysteries of neurobiology.

I'm supposed to be taking a B-complex, and have seriously lapsed on that. The tablets are huge, hard to swallow, and taste funny. *makes a face* And beyond that, I'm tired of taking pills. SRSLY.

Oh, good news -- my parents are cat "shopping". Naturally, I find one with the right personality, a snuggler with a loud purr (stuck on 11!), really laid back cat. Dad didn't "click" with him, and Mom was nitpicky about "oh, his hair is too long, and I don't want a black cat." (Come on, I'm willing to groom him daily, and black fur... it's BLACK. It won't clash with ANYTHING.) So as much as I've pushed them to just adopt Frankie already, they're holding out for the "perfect" cat. *sigh*

Try a different brand of B-complex, Kitty. Some are much smaller than others and the taste can vary widely also. Your therapist or a pharmacist may be able to suggest a brand that is less nasty-tasting as well as smaller.

I know that some multi-vitamins upset my digestion tremendously. Unfortunately for me, the ones I tolerate well are usually expensive health food store brands. It figures!
