  • Why am I posting my ideas instead of doing my ideas?

    I am posting my ideas because my medical conditions prevent me from doing my ideas. That is a primary definition of disability: a medical condition that prevents someone from accomplishing that which the person would be able to accomplish if the medical condition were not present.

    Without help from other people so that I can heal, I will never be able to do any of my ideas. By posting my ideas, it helps me to not be attached to them anymore, and it seems that non-attachment is essential to my survival.

  • How does my post-traumatic stress disorder affect my life?

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSV) is a specific form of anxiety with relatively predictable symptoms and predictable triggers of the symptoms. I have lost nearly all of my personal and professional relationships, gedeeltelik, because of PTSDit is not a trivial matter that I can simplysnapout of: it is a serious and debilitating illness.

    It involves:

    • Re-experiencing of traumatic events
    • Avoidance of events, places, mense, that might trigger re-experiencing the trauma
    • Numbing the senses to avoid feeling anything
    • A constant, alert state; being more easily startled than before the trauma

    See 'N Definisie van Kompleks PTSV.

    Physical symptoms include:

    • Nausea
    • Acid reflux
    • Anxiety attacks that can be triggered by small and innocuous things

    Emotional and mental symptoms include:

    • Quick and sudden oscillation between moods
    • Unpredictable emotions and reactions
    • Feeling that my rational mind is not working properly
    • Irregular sleep patterns and nightmares

  • Why cannot Ijust get a job”?

    Imagine you had a co-worker or employee who, elke dag, skielik oorweldig en gekruip onder sy lessenaar. Maak nie saak hoe goed hy was by sy werk, dink jy dit sal goed wees vir die werkplek aan 'n werknemer wat bang is om e-pos oop te maak?

    Sometimes I am paralyzed by indecision and other times I experience anxiety attacks triggered by absurdly small and innocuous things.

    I feel as if my rational mind is quite slow and I feel confused by things that normally would not confuse me. Hierdie simptoom kom en gaan, and only in May 2014 did I learn it was connected with my PTSV.

    Elke uur van elke dag, Ek moet veg deur gebeure en simptome soos bo. geen taak, maak nie saak hoe onbenullig, gewaarborg eenvoudige of maklik wees nie. As ek nie hoef te gaan met my gebreek emosionele reaksies en my met tussenposes-gekniehalter rasionele verstand, dan kan ek seker styg uit my armoede en ander probleme. Maar my emosies is buite beheer en my rasionele verstand weier soms om saam te werk, so ek vas in hierdie afwaartse spiraal van armoede en geestelike siekte.

  • What treatments are available to me?

    I am citizen of the United States, and our healthcare system only properly serves those who can afford itplus it is the most expensive healthcare system in the world. Vir die meeste van my lewe, I have not been able to afford full treatment. nietemin, since I was 23 jaar oud, I have had some access to treatment and decent access to diagnoses. The result is that I have a deep understanding of what medical treatments I needand what seems to be just as important: what medical treatments I do not need.

    For my mental health, since 2007, I have seen general practitioners, psychiatrists, and therapists in Chicago, Beijing, Western Illinois, Cairo, die Verenigde Koninkryk, and Austin. The diagnoses and prescribed treatments have been consistent. All have recommended medications to help me cope with my symptoms. All have stated that drugs will not cure my symptoms, and that I must make changes in my life if I am to heal.

    The recommended treatments have included talk therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy. With a couple of my long-term psychiatrists (medical doctors who specialize in psychiatric medicine), we discussed the possibility of electroconvulsive therapy. It was never a serious option, egter, because of the cost. No doctor has ever recommended inpatient programs. In Cairo, I tried to get into an inpatient program, but the doctors refused to admit me, in part because I did not fit the profile for someone who needed it.
