What is your biggest regret?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
Trying to do too many things at the same time. Trying to get through things while already needed to go get help long time ago already. So pushing myself way too hard.
Be patient. Love yourself. Get to know who you are truly and learn to embrace that person. Before you know it the pandemic will be passed and you’ll be surprised how people gravitate towards confidence and self awareness! That I didn’t trust myself that my ex and her family were actually mentally abusing me.
Recently I realized I was too complacent at my previous job and I regret not trying to advance my career earlier. Hopefully I can turn things around this year.
Never trying to make more friends, or even ask girls out that I had a crush on in high school. Not asking people on dates like at all. I only did it once and she actually said yes (it didn't last too long because I moved) but if she said yes then who knows how many others would have, I didn't put myself out there. My first relationship, it was toxic and I was too young too deal with all the drama.
Being too invested in relationships.
Started smoking and later drinking. Thankfully I have quit smoking.
I hardly left my house, had no real friends. My biggest regret is not being with my mum in her final moments, I mean I would visit her every 2 days but it wasn’t good enough, I still hate myself for not being with my mum as she ascended to the place where only true angels go.
Drinking and blacking out and having a ptsd episode at my in laws house. I told them I didn’t want anything and couldn’t drink but they wouldn’t take no as an answer. Needless to say it didn’t go well. That was years ago.
Not learning an instrument as a child. It's so much harder as an adult. That I let people (mostly concerned family) talk me out of pursuing computer and electrical engineering in college. Med school never worked out, so if I could change one thing in my life, it would be that. I can't afford another bachelor's, but I'm learning to program now (never too late for that). I generally live with no regrets, but that is the biggest thing that comes closest to a regret.
In adult life, I'd have to say moving from California to Texas in an effort to satisfy my wife's insatiable material appetite and buying the big shiny house. Wife's gone now, house is gone now, and I live in a shitty rent house in Texas with no friends, and unable to move back because of agreements on geographic proximity concerning the child. In younger life, I was a very good musician. I got recruited to some really top notch music schools, but I listened to my high school counselor, and opted to go to a regular college in pursuit of a traditional white collar career. Turns out I just don't have the personality to survive long in an office environment, and I've got no outlet to express myself. I undoubtedly would've been much worse off financially, but my very being would have been a lot more satisfied.

Steph and syd say you treat your fiance like a child

Yes..I treat the man who makes most of our decisions and who's 33 ...like a 5 year old ..
Is it because I clean the house, take him to work (because fun fact he has PTSD really bad and doesn't like driving due to being blown up on the road overseas) cook for him etc...
Like if I didn't do things like that I'd be lazy according to people lmao

Which do you find to be more eerie, attics or basements? Why? 🙀 🎃 👻 🦇 💀 👍 🙃

redoasis2017’s Profile Photo★ ☮ ♫ Շєภคςเ๏ยร Շ๏๓๓คץ™ ✌ ♚ ☻
I hate both, but basements are the worst for me. My maternal grandparents have a huge basement, and I remember one time there was one particular light continuously flickering.
Only a few months before I'd witnessed a store burn down to the ground because of a malfunctioning, flickering light. No one died or got seriously injured, but I will never forget the sight of my dad running back inside a building engulfed in flames, looking for people who couldn't get out. I didn't dare to go down the basement, no matter how many times my family asked me to do so.
Looking back, those were clear signs of PTSD and I definitely should've been put in therapy for that, but my distress has always been brushed off, even to this day.

That's horrible I'm so sorry. you were 16? What happened how did you get away?

I was 17. It was an underground German/Czech se.x trafficking ring that is pretty big in San Diego. (You can look it up, they finally caught them in this last year) I was supposed to be flown to Germany in the morning but I am pretty sure my parents paid them ransom cause I was released in the morning, like they literally dumped me on the side of the road in the middle of Encinitas so I had to find my way back home.
It was terrible. I had severe PTSD for years & I didn’t tell anyone about it until i was 19. That’s why I have gone to therapy for so many years. I finally have my triggers under control but they really fu.cked me up.

What happens when the amygdala is not working properly?

"Amygdala" by Nico, Illustration by Debuglies
Overactive amygdala or having one amygdala that is smaller than the other has been associated with fear and anxiety disorders. Fear is an emotional and physical response to danger. Anxiety is a psychological response to something that is perceived as dangerous. Anxiety can lead to panic attacks that occur when the amygdala sends signals that a person is in danger, even when there is no real threat. Anxiety disorders associated with the amygdala include: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCO), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and Social Anxiety Disorder and could also contribute to the following antisocial personalities: Personality sociopath, psychopathic personality and character neurosis.
As a species, we are xenophobic, jealous of our peers, competitive for status, and inclined toward violence. When it serves our purpose, we have the urge to lie, cheat, and steal. The fact is that children require experiences of socialization, love and nurturing, constant punishment for misbehavior, role models, positive reinforcement of prosocial behaviors, encouragement of empathic identifications with other living beings, and knowledge and respect for the rules of civilized society. , if they want to be good citizens when they become adults.
Let me finish by saying this: I believe that criminals have a conscience to a lesser or greater extent depending on their genetic predisposition and personal experiences. Many criminals refuse to assimilate and follow the rules that govern our society and develop impulsive behaviors and antisocial behaviors such as lying, cheating, stealing and murder to achieve their goals and achieve the result they desire without any consideration or regard to who gets hurt in the process.

What happens when the amygdala is not working properly

Nem találtam a neten rá normális magyarázatot, ezért írom ide ki. Régebben is elfordult már de egy ideje többször hogy ok nélkül rámjön a sírhatnék és néha már visszafolytani se tudom teljesen mert egy két könnycsepp kijön és van mikor rossz kedvem lesz ok nélkül. Szerintetek ez mitől lehet?

Valószínűleg szorongás, de az is lehet hogy egy traumat próbálsz feldolgozni. Nyilván szakember nélkül erre nem nagyon lehet megfelelő választ adni, de ha elfogadsz egy tanácsot:
Amikor rád jön a sírás, ne tartsd vissza. Egyszer engedd ki magadból úgy ahogy van és próbáld meg megfigyelni hogy mire válaszolhatott így a tested és mi jár közben az agyadban valójában. Lehet valami olyan inger ért, amire ez a válasz, de az is lehet hogy pl hormonvaltozas okozza, front okozza, ptsd okozza, személyiségzavar okozza, ezer fele dolog lehet sajnos, viszont szakember nélkül nem nagyon fogsz választ kapni. Sok sikert, remélem sikerül vele kezdeni valamit és sokkal békésebb leszel ♥️

Thoughts on those 400 men? Express your anger

JackSparrow4847’s Profile PhotoJack Sparrow
It's not possible for 400 men to be directly, practically involved in such an act while the 3 key perpetrators remain the same throughout.
The men who started it were 3 in number, have been identified, and remained involved till the end.
In the video, you can see a huge crowd, a very small portion of which has the victim in their line of sight. Rest are just a part of the chaos, not involved directly. Barely even witnessing it.
Let's suppose they WERE involved. How did that woman escape without a single bruise on her face or arms or hands? As you can see in her interview. She doesn't even have PTSD.
When such things happen in such chaotic circumstances, people steer clear of such scenarios instead of trying to be a one-man-army and saving the victim single-handedly which is clearly not a practical solution.
Whether they called the police or not, when they called the police, and how the police responded is something that I know nothing of. Nor do I know the causes of any of those.
They were unrelated men, none of which could single-handedly rescue her and risk being accused of being a perpetrator later on since the police is now trying to convict 400 people after recognizing them from the video.
Please don't be so emotional, please have some common sense, some intelligence. Women might mistrust men and say that all men are the same and that's why this happened, but at least men should try to find a sensible explanation other than just mass misogyny.

Further details on Narcissistic Victims Syndrome would be appreciated. Thank you for what you do.

Here are some tips, tools and strategies.
Acknowledge and accept the abuse. Aka recognizing that you did experience abuse, whether from a partner, family or friend, is an important 1st step to recovery.
Set your boundaries and be clear about them. Therapist recommend cutting off all ties with the abuser. Cutting off contact isn't a boundary for them but for you too.
Prepare for complex emotions: grief and loss, shock, anger, sadness or depression.
There may also be anxiety, fear, paranoia and/or shame. The trauma of a toxic relationship can leave you with PTSD too.
Reclaim your identity. Narcissist expect their victims to behave in certain ways. Fail to meet their standards and they will belittle and criticize you. It's important that you don't listen to them no matter how harsh they can be because you are not what they say about you.
Practice self-compassion.
Understand that your feelings may linger.
Remember to take care of yourself and talk to others.
Get professional support.

Topic of Today: PTSD Rebuild trust and safety.

MentalHealthMatters’s Profile PhotoMental Health Awareness
Express your commitment to the relationship.Let your loved one know that you’re here for the long haul so they feel loved and supported.
Create routines.
Structure and predictable schedules can restore a sense of stability and security to people with PTSD, both adults and children. Creating routines could involve getting your loved one to help with groceries or housework, for example, maintaining regular times for meals, or simply “being there” for the person.
Minimize stress at home.Try to make sure your loved one has space and time for rest andrelaxation.
Speak of the future and make plans.This can help counteract the common feeling among people with PTSD that their future is limited.
Keep your promises.Help rebuild trust by showing that you’re trustworthy. Be consistent and follow through on what you say you’re going to do.
Emphasize your loved one’s strengths.Tell your loved one you believe they’re capable of recovery and point out all of their positive qualities and successes.
Look for ways to empower your loved one. Rather than doing things for them that they’re capable of doing for themselves, it’s better to build their confidence and self-trust by giving them more choices and control.

MentalHealthMatters’s Profile PhotoMental Health Awareness
How to support someone with PTSD.
-Don’t pressure your loved one into talking.It can be very difficult for people with PTSD to talk about their traumatic experiences. For some, it can even make them feel worse.
-Do “normal” things with your loved one, things that have nothing to do with PTSD or the traumatic experience.
-Let your loved one take the lead, rather than telling them what to do. Everyone with PTSD is different but most people instinctively know what makes them feel calm and safe.
-Manage your own stress.The morecalm, relaxed, and focused you are, the better you’ll be able to help your loved one.
-Be patient.Recovery is a process that takes time and often involves setbacks.
-Educate yourself about PTSD.The more you know about thesymptoms, effects, and treatment options, the better equipped you’ll be to help your loved one, understand what they are going through, and keep things in perspective.
-Accept (and expect) mixed feelings.As you go through the emotional wringer, be prepared for a complicated mix of feelings—some of which you’ll never want to admit. Just remember, having negative feelings toward your family member doesn’t mean you don’t love them.

Thoughts on Memorial Day........

BonesAngela’s Profile Photo#SWEET
There should be no thoughts about it.
It's not a day to "celebrate." It's a day to be thankful for because if it weren't for our veterans, those lost & those still alive, we wouldn't have the freedom we do have.
Memorial day triggers our veterans' PTSD, especially when people use today to set off fireworks. The way people "celebrate" it makes me sick tbh.

ليه الزعل و الذكريات الوحشه ميكونش ليها علاج زي المرض كده ما بنعالجه

ليهم تقنيات علاجية بنستخدمها تندرج تحت علاج الصدمات والإساءات.
وهدف العلاج ليس نسيانها لكن التعامل مع المشاعر المزعجة المصاحبة ليها، والمعتقدات السلبية التي نتجت عنها، وتبني معتقدات جديدة، وخفوت استثارة الذكريات في شكل الصور أو الأحلام مع المثيرات... وأمور أخرى.
وكل هذا من خلال إعادة معالجة للذكريات، من خلال مدارس علاجية مختلفة.

A ja bym chciała poświęcić nieco uwagi Nilufer. Autorka w swoim wątku podchodzi psychologicznie do tematu, przybliża PTSD ( zespół stresu pourazowego, o którym mówi się wciąż za mało ), więc oby tak dalej. Liczę, że poruszy też kwestie kobiecą na pozostałych płaszczyznach ;DD

Właśnie teraz przeczytałam jej wstęp jeszcze raz i już pomijając to jak pięknie pisze autorka to nie zawiodła mnie jeśli chodzi o tę kwestię! Fajnie, że porusza takie tematy w swoich wątkach i w dodatku jeszcze realniej przedstawia swoją postać. Moje serce już zdobyła i już nie mogę doczekać się dalszych wątków. :(

+1 answer in: “Przemyślenia dotyczące haremu Murada?”

كل مافي الأمر أني أكره أن أبدو كغبية مضيعة للوقت عند الطبيب، وأنا أقطن في بلد عربي فالأمر مجتمعيا معقد قليلا بالاضافة لكوني أخشى البكاء عند ذكر بعض الأحداث فلا يفهمني ولا أفيده في شيء ولكوني ملحدة أيضا

قرأت بقية الكلام. يبدو لي من الكلام أنكِ بحالة ذهنية سليمة، لكن المعاناة واقعية. وقبل أن أفصح عن فرضيتي، أحتاج لمعرفة التالي:
هل تعانين من إعادة إحياء الأحداث النفسية الصادمة لهذا الموقف الأليم؟
هل هنالك محفّزات لصور وكوابيس دخيلة تهيمن على وعيك أثناء اليوم وتذكّركِ بتفاصيل ما حدث؟ أشبه بالـ flashback؟
هل لتتجنّبكِ المحادثات واللقاء مع الزملاء والأصدقاء ومللكِ من أسئلتهم هو بسبب أن ما حدث كان داخل الجامعة أو الأماكن المرتبطة بالحادث الأليم؟ هل كانوا هم موجودين؟
هل تشعرين بحالة من الخدر العاطفي؟ وكأن كل شيء numb؟

هل تتذكرين كل تفاصيل ما حدث؟
ماذا عن التوتر أو نوبات الغضب، تعانين منها؟
كيف تنامين ليلًا؟
الاكتئاب، فقدان الاهتمام، وانعدام التلذذ والانسحاب الاجتماعي كما تذكريه هي ردود فعل تحصل ضمن الـ PTSD ونسبة ليست بالقليلة (٣٠٪) تتجاوز الـ ٦ أشهر وتحتاج لفترة أطول.
التحسّن هنا إشارة إيجابية جدًا وتعني الكثير، ولا داع للقلق من أنها ستبقى، ركّزي على التعامل مع الحالة بهدوء واستمرار بطيء لكن متوازن وعاقل.
أنا أجد الحديث مع طبيب نفسي هو أمر مهم جدًا وسيساعدكِ. ربما أيضًا سيساعدك الأمر لو شاركتي بعض التفاصيل مع شخص قريب تثقين به، والبكاء معه وتفريغ قبلكِ من شحنة ثقيلة. لا غباء في البكاء إطلاقًا، بل الغبي هو من لا يستوعب الثقل النفسي الذي يمكن أن يؤذي الإنسان في فترة ما من حياته ويجعله يبكي ويحزن. ولا يفهم الحزن والاكتئاب إلا من ذاق طعمه المر. يبدو لي أنكِ قوية، حاولي أن تبني على ذلك..

In one paragraph, tell me the story of your life. I just like hearing about people and their life stories.

I was born in Alabama as an accident baby to two loving parents. I had an amazingly happy childhood, but desperately wanted to fit in in middle school. I started dressing in all black and listening to shitty music to fit in with the emo kids and my parents thought that was a good reason to lock me up in a mental hospital. Around the same time, my mom left my dad for a rich old guy, so I was released to an angry father who saw me as a punching bag. I suffered from depression, an eating disorder, OCD, and horrible anxiety. As time went on, I began to stand up for myself, take better care of myself, and I forced myself to have better self esteem. That's when I realized that my current situation wasn't entirely to blame for my problems - I have PTSD from being in the hospital. I'm currently in therapy and trying to figure out how to to live life with PTSD.
Born and lived in the States. Never knew how to speak Vietnamese and could not get along well with the Vietnamese community in America - or at least no one treated me with respect. I have a twin brother, but he is so much smarter than me - it just sucks. We've had the same group of friends, and up until college I realize I don't know what I want to see in a friendship and I start making a ton of mistakes. I don't know what my interests are, I force myself to make small talk, and I just get people bored. I was born in Staten Island, the forgotten borough of New York City. My father went to prison when I was 3 for robbing a cab driver at gunpoint. My mother remarried when I was 6 and that guy abused my mother, sister and myself verbally and physically until I was big enough to do something about it. Because someone finally retaliated, he scurried off and now he's living in the midwest somewhere. I never let any of that stuff get me down though. I just use those experiences as lessons on how NOT to live. My mother and I are kind of like a team. I decided I wanted to have a career in broadcasting, so I dropped out of college 2 weeks in and signed up for a trade school. The trade school was a scam but I still managed to bust my ass enough to get into the industry and I still love it! Oh, and I lived the first 23 years of my life thinking I was straight until I realized I liked dudes last year. Born in Ohio. Parents are happy to have child. Grow up being the good kid. Single child. Get all the shit I want. Become spoiled. Get older. Go to high school. Tall as fuck. Switch to vocational high school half way through to get a better education. Become certified in computer tech. Got bigger. Graduated at 6'7" 250lbs. Never recruited by football team. Mom upset because I never became a football player. I don't like football. Start college immediatley. Went for Biology. Hated it. Switched to CAD. Hated it. Parents divorced. Move to new area. I lived in the old area for 15+ years. Start college. Switched to media design. Loved it. Got first job at Taco Bell. Fuck taco bell. Quit first job after a month.

اسمحيلي اقول رأيي كطبيب امتياز مش تشخيص؛ مادام قالت في دماغه(مش بيسمع اصوات في البيئة المحيطة) ونحط تحتها كذا خط يبقى دي مش hallucinations لأ ال severe او stress, anxiety ممكن تعمل كده عادي ممكن برده obsessions وانا شايف ان ده ممكن post traumatic stress disorderممكن تتسمى )false hallucinations)

تفسيراتك واحتمالاتك صحيحة يا دكتور لكن مش هينفع نقول ممكن او نحط اي تشخيص غير لما نسمع الشكوى من لسان المريض نفسه لانه وصفه لما يدور بداخله هايساعدنا نشوف الصورة واضحة.
وان كانت ايا من الاحتمالات دي صحيحة فهو في كل الحالات هيحتاج تدخل دوائي اولا ثم جلسات.
خاصة ال PTSD لازم نتأكد من وجود مؤشرات معينة تثبته.
وممكن الصدمة اصلاً تسببت في تنشيط اضطراب معين هو كان عنده استعداد له.

I have a question about your mental health with BPD

I wasn't diagnosed with BPD, I was told I have a lot of the emotional traits that are apart of it which is why my therapist didn't diagnose me with it. She told me I have a lot of other emotional issues besides depression, anxiety, insomnia and PTSD. Do I know what the others are? No. I just know I'm very emotionally damaged.

Jak myślisz... Czy człowiek może zmienić się w przeciągu jednego dnia, zmienić całkowicie tok myślenia i zmienić swoje nastawienie do pewnych kwestii, mając niespełna dzień wcześniej zupełnie inne myślenie? 😏

misia8907’s Profile Photoωαℓ ѕιę тσ נєѕт мóנ śωιαт !♥
Tak, myślę że jak najbardziej jest to możliwe, zwłaszcza po jakimś traumatycznym, szokującym wydarzeniu jak np. otarcie się o śmierć lub śmierć kogoś bliskiego. Choć zazwyczaj taki proces trwa dłużej i często jest jednym z objawów PTSD (zespół stresu pourazowego).

If emotions are the product of biochemical reactions, then in the future we will be theoretically able to control them. If we could control emotions through technology, should we?

NicoleBuckleyyx’s Profile Photonikki ☻
Theoretically yes. Should we? Probably not. Biologically our emotions are linked to our nervous system and our lymphatic system. You could argue which one controls the other.. but if we did nothing but change the chemical composition of what makes us feel happy or sad or scared IMO it will have a devestating effect on our hormones and our bodies in general. Allot of the symptoms that occur as a result of PTSD (for example) are as a result of this kind of mismatch. Like low levels of seretonin which causes sleep issues in PTSD sufferers is as a result of the brain producing higher and higher amounts of adrenaline causing the body to be in a constant state of FOFOF. So to deny our bodies the ability to excert emotion (regardless of which ones) would be to deny our bodies the ability to regulate hormanal changes/imbalances.

are you 21 now? i knew you from ask fm since you were like 15. i always thought u were cute, but back in 2014-2015, i was 19/20 so i didn't wnna be creepy. i'm 25 now.

i’m 21-22, but regardless an adult finding me attractive when i was barely a sophomore high school is weird to me; that might be the ptsd talking but i doubt it.

Who is the craziest person you know?

I am. Got off work one rainy night, driving home, going through a slum section of town,and I noticed two "thugs" at a redlight knocking on vehicle windows. No one was rolling down a window nor letting them in...I carry a loaded pistol with me at all times. A 9 shot Browning Automatic. I put it under my left leg and stopped. They tapped on my window , and rolled it down. Asked what they wanted....they said they just needed a ride to their girlfriends house across the river. So I told them to hop in, thinking they wanted to hold me up or steal my car, at the less populated town across the river. They had a 12 pack of beer with them, and started talking about being on their way to see their girlfriends across the river. Before I dropped them off, we were buddies.....laughing and joking. But in my defense, I had just got out of the Military, and was suffering from PTSD. How crazy was that?

Auch, oribil. Tin minte ca m-a pus la curs sa răspund si după m-a pus sa ii zic un exemplu referitor la abatarea standard, nu i-am răspuns ca nu aveam nimic in minte la momentul acela si m-a luat in batjocură :)) m-am cacat pe mine

Cati anonimi am pe aici care au studiat/studiaza psiho la ubb?:))) Observ ca tu scrii altfel. Eu din fericire am scapat din ghearele mortii, niciodata nu m a luat pe mine la intrebari, doar pe colegii de langa si mereu ma panicam cand se uita in directia mea. Ptsd at its best:))))))

It's alright! I only suffered minor injuries, thankfully. The PTSD has been kind of bad though. But, I intend to go to therapy for it. Thank you, I'm so relieved as well! ❤Trying to remind myself of that constantly even though I'm beyond stressed out at the moment.

I remember her saying that did is usually caused by abuse related trauma but not always. Its not true right? Idk what she was referring to, i can only assume it was regarding car accidents or something

It's definitely not true - DID can only develop in the unique environment that exists around violent, longterm abuse.
She has a video, I can't remember which one, where she literally says someone can be traumatized from birth and develop DID as they are being born from "a traumatic birth experience." You can't develop PTSD as a newborn, and PTSD is absolutely a requisite for DID. She's a total quack and just makes things up as she goes along. It's infuriating.

hot take: I think things are the way they are because of this whole inclusivity crap. trauma, mental illness, trans all used to have a certain set of "criteria" for lack of a better word to be or have. nowadays people are so afraid of "invalidating" others that they put divorce, bullying, etc. (1/2)

(2/2) under the same umbrella as being m*tilated and br*talized for years. feel sad occasionally? you're on the exact same boat as people who can't keep people close because of severe delusions. idgaf if your feelings are hurt by me saying this. you will always have communities to go to
(3/3 sorry) but certain communities are for CERTAIN EXPERIENCES. "i'm traumatized" my ass, you went through a divorce and had a mom who yelled sometimes, I never got a childhood because I grew up being beaten and r*ped.
EXACTLY 👏 SAY IT AGAIN 👏
Its not the job of trauma survivors to compromise our privacy and open up our spaces because someones feelings get hurt because they aren't "included." i hate that people spread this idea of "uwu youre invalidating" or the whole "just bc its not bad for you doesnt mean it wasnt bad for them" like im not saying that it didnt hurt them or that it wasnt something that affected their life. im saying that just because you go through something that was stressful for you doesnt mean that you can say "i was stressed by this so i understand how you were traumatized!" apart of trauma survivors having spaces is we can talk with each other, talk with people who have the same experiences and struggles as us and find understanding there. i dont want to talk to someone whose parents got divorced about the things that i deal with bc of ptsd and everything else that trauma left me with? its none of your business and you wont understand anyway. not to mention how survivors are already so on guard/private bc of being treated like freak shows or just being ftishized by creeps
but no everyone needs to be included and "validated" and of course that means traumatized people need to sacrifice their boundaries and comfort to stroke and coddle the feelings of a bunch of self absorbed brats who want to pretend that they have struggles and legitimate problems bc mommy and daddy fought once in a while.

ماما ايجابي كورونا اتصرف ازاي وانا بتعالج من اكتئاب و PTSD و بانيك وOCD أنا خايفه ومش مبطله عياط وعارفه إن الحاله النفسيه مهمه عشاني وعشانها... اتصرف ازاي ممكن نصيحه؟

تهدي تماما.. 95% من حالات العالم في ظروف مستقرة وفي عجائز ومرضى قاموا منها.. متقلقيش.. تواصلي مع دكتور ولو ماما مش محتاجة تنفس صناعي يبقى تتعزل في البيت مع بروتوكول العلاج وتغذية صحية وتمارين خفيفة ونفسية حلوة= أيام بسيطة بإذن الله والدنيا تبقى زي الفل. والدعاء قبل كل ده.

possibly hot take but i feel like a lot of people are only posting because they feel they have to. i'm actively avoiding anything blm right now bc i've had so many bad experiences with cops and it's so hard for me, and i'm deemed racist for staying out of it.

i completely agree with you. im staying out of the conversations too, bc its a trigger for my PTSD as im a survivor of severe violence, including witnessing police brutality firsthand. and then people say things like “silence is just as violent” like no its not. some people have their reasons for not talking about it and thats okay.
if someone posts about BLM but does nothing for real life activism and advocacy, thats worse in my eyes than people who stay quiet on social media while being apart of real world change and activism. posting argumentative things on facebook isnt real advocacy.
