What To Do When Disbelieved?

not sure why writing. nearly no hope left. disbelieved about something so much that the pain from that has kept me stuck in pain. it was a very very unlikely event. the person with whom it happened will not corroborate it. can i get through trauma alone? hurting all the time. worn down day by day. tired, so tired hard to function at all. situation so unlikely can't expect many to believe. what do i do? sorry if sound bleak at all. things are bleak and i am giving up day by day….

Bad Day, Three Panic Attacks. —

Bad Day, Three Panic Attacks.

I'm at school today, on campus. Have a 1 to 3 class, and another one from 7 to 10. Start getting really anxious towards the end of the first class, turns into a major Anxiety attack, maybe even panic attack by the time class lets out. And I'm stuck here for four hours before my 7 o'clock class.

I head to the woman's center to hand out and hide, and calm down. There's a councilor that 2"was leaving, over hears me mention anxiety and steps in to help. Got me tea, invited me to her office to…

Suddenly Haunted By A Therapy Termination From 2 Years Ago

This is long. I'm sorry about that. I need to write and post it. If anyone might be willing to read this mini-novel and might have feedback, that would be wonderful.

I started to feel a feeling of comfort recently when close to people lately. Deep comfort and closeness.

Last week, I started to freak out. I started pushing everyone in my life offline away and being avoidant. Very avoidant. It worried people which confused me all the more.

The feeling of deep comfort when emotionally…

Quitting Smoking —

Quitting Smoking

I am in a real bind. I feel totally trapped. I am a smoker.

I have been told by EVERY doctor I have to NOT quit smoking. That it is a bad time to do so. Not certain that there will ever be a good time to do so.

I have led up to the stop smoking thing by quitting triggers. Coffee. Sweets. I have been doing smoothies (green) only. Not eating anything bad for me. This has been a 4 week wind up to my quit day.

So, for the past 2 days I have not smoked. And here is what has…

This Excites Me- Curious About Your Experiences With Binaural Beats

Curious if anyone else has tried meditation through binaural beats and had as much effect as me. A head ache will be gone in less than a minute – and it does help me to create new focus and better harmony in times of discord. For inspiration I post this awesome video about cymatics demonstrating the visual aspect of how sound waves travel. Binaural and isochronic tones theoretically in my words over ride thought patterns and invoke a selected or targeted brain wave function- there by…

Am I Suppose To Take A Lie Detector To Prove It? —

Am I Suppose To Take A Lie Detector To Prove It?

I called into work as I'm real sick and have no voice (so couldn't talk too much about it) but I turned on today's Dr Phil. I normally don't have too much issue watching things that I've been through. As homework in therapy I have researched human trafficking (which is how I know the term) and cults and torture and sexual sadists and psyco/sociopaths and stuff like that.

Content doesn't trigger me.

And it was of a woman that so reminds me of myself as she is total flat affect like myself…

New And Confused? Car Accident. Help?

Hello! I am new to this site, and I hope it serves as some relief while I wait. Bit of a long message, too, I hope you don't mind!

I was in a car accident over a year ago, the car I was in (I wasn't driving) was basically T-boned, car wrote off, I was wrote off from work physically.. a whole fiasco. Now, the accident wasn't as bad as some, and for that I am thankful that myself and the other two people involved (the driver of the car I was in, and the driver of the other car involved) were…
